Health King has a known Chinese Formula (Luma Yushen or Yu Shen) called Nephroease, according to the Academy of Traditional Medicine, this time honored formula is nutritive and good for Spleen, Low Fertility and possibly lowers urine protein. Also may be good for Kidney dysfunctions and failure. This is a very exciting TCM formula. Health King also has a Kidney Tea Fortifier. This is actually a Tea with Herbs for better functioning and has Jasmine too. Since most of us are aware of the usefulness of Cranberry for one of our most precious organs, the kidney. Enzymatic Therapy has Organicran, which has a very high concentrated version of Cranberry and Vitamin C, also with Uva Ursi. The Kidneys also control the amount of fluid in the body. We know that one! They also control the amount of crucial chemicals, it decides to let in, such as Sodium, Potassium, and Calcium, They produce the Hormone Renin, which regulates Blood Pressure and erythropoietin, which in turn regulates our Blood Count. Herb Pharm has the Golden Rod & Horsetail Combo Tincture. It has Horsetail (an astringent, anti-inflammatory, general detox), Corn Silk (eliminates pain), Pipsissewa (a urinary antiseptic), Golden Rod (anti-inflammatory and helpful with Cystitis) and Juniper Berry (also useful in conditions such as Cystitis).

Immune System Blues or Avoidance of Degenerative Diseases

Immune Support by Now Foods

All chronic and metabolic diseases cause an immune system failure

Different organs of our body require different nutrients, as they all go down to different cell receptor sites for repairing, we need to repair every single day.
Click Here for more products for Immune System Support

Our health is the only thing we have, we can't really exist without it. Avoidance of degenerate disease and longevity go hand in hand. The attackers are Viruses, Allergens, Bacteria, Molds, Etc.

In a lot of ways, our gastrointestinal tract is our second immune system and our second brain. Natrens Bifidus Factors re-implants that good bacteria that you lost from pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, etc and is also a big help for digestion and any immune disorder. We need to be constantly on the defense. Detoxification and cleansing are always one of the first steps. The Green Foods by Dr. Hagiwora, Green Magma, also recommended by Dr. Elson M Haas, author of The New Detox Diet, help with your Acid & Alkaline balance. We are attacked by Infection, Inflammation, and Metabolic Diseases, Moducare by Wakunaga/Kyolic increases the Natural Killer Cells for overactive or underactive immunity. It comes from Plant Fats, known as Sterols/ Sterolins. Moducare also comes in chewable grape flavor.

All chronic and metabolic diseases cause an immune system failure. The Lifestyle Disease Division of the Ministry of Health and Labor in their 2006 report, said that the Metabolic Syndrome shows up in one out of every two men, ages 40-74 and beyond. With women, it's one out of every five in the same age group. This shows that high blood pressure, high cholesterol and elevated insulin levels are going through the roof. We are not paying attention to these warnings. Ridgecrest Herbals has Blood Sugar Balance, with all the Chinese botanicals to encourage natural harmony. Jarrow Formulas has Glucose Optimizer, with all the herbs, amino acids, and full spectrum ingredients. Our protective immune cells, which are the elite warriors of the white blood cells, are screaming, help me, help me. They need your help in defending themselves against the super germs and super microbes and warding off the stressors of our environment and lifestyle, and the pharmaceuticals that gobble up all our nutrients. Mangoxan by Pure Fruit Technologies helps the absorption of Antioxidants and other nerve damages. They also have Goji-Zen. Goji also knew as Wolfberry in traditional Chinese medicine has been in use for Eye Health, for twenty centuries.

Our diets are low in immune-strengthening nutrients resulting in depression and other immunological factors. Nobody can eat enough, that's a fool's tale in this day and age, considering what our generation is up against. Different organs of our body require different nutrients, as they all go down to different cell receptor sites for repairing, and we need to repair every single day. Antibodies, what are they? That's what is released by our Immune System if the immune system is working properly. Now Foods has Immune Advantage, with all the Immunoglobulins, that work with our red blood cells and Proline, an amino acid for Heart Health. Now Foods also has Colostrum, which is a very important function of those antibodies to destroy and prevent naughty cells from developing. It comes in powder or caps. While pollution and chemicals affect us at the cellular level, Nutritionals will help keep us living longer and healthier and slow down our aging clock. So send in nutritional support for your body's defense team and become a lean mean fighting machine.

Now for our picky children, they also need immune help, they usually do not eat right and are exposed to all kinds of germs. Healthasure has the Gummie Bear packs with all the nutrients, and Hero Nutritional Products has the Yummie Bears, a whole food fruit and veggie blend. And what about our pets, they come down with almost the same problems we do. Mezotrace has a complete formula, which includes all the B vitamins, antioxidants, and trace minerals. Jarrow Formulas has the Intestinal For Pets, this has all the good strains of Probiotics, It can be mixed in their foods for detoxification and bad breath.

    Inflammation Support - Pain, Pain, Go Away!

    Inflammation Support by Now Foods

    When Inflammation takes place in our digestive tract, we have diarrhea.

    Try these more natural ingredients that provide alternatives to the Cox Pathways, instead of the High-Risk NSAID'S, that provide only band-aid solutions. Even so, you can do both if necessary, always remember to protect your Liver.

    Bring it on and fortify the defense tactics for your Inflammation. It seems that C-Reactive Protein is Inflammation, and now that the latest research states that this is just as important as cholesterol markers, which goes together with all Inflammation in your body. Information was presented by Jocelyn Mathern RD. and Marion Verbruggen Ph.D. Both agree that consumption of Flax Lignans is beneficial with a natural source of important nutrients, such as Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Now Foods, Jarrow Formulas and Health From The Sun have some excellent Omega-3 Fatty acids. When we are not treating our Immune Systems like one of the most important parts we have and recognize the role it plays in our theater of irritating destruction, and when this happens in and around our muscles and joints, we experience pain, swelling, and down the road joint damage. Vitacarte has Bovine Trachael Cartilage, helping the swelling and rebuilding. Arthritis is the number one cause of long-term disability in North America. Country Life has Shark Cartilage in 100 caps at 800 mgs to cope with the cartilage damage. Over 55 million people are affected and 200,000 are children. Shark Liver Oil in 120 caps by Scandinavian Formulas has the Anti-inflammatory Liver Oil helping control Autoimmune Responses.

    Unfortunately, most Physicians have no-where to go with this, except the NSAID'S Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. When Inflammation takes place in our digestive tract, we have diarrhea, since Chronic Disease is attributed to changes in our dietary lifestyles throughout the world. Wobenzym By Naturally Vitamins, a European Formula of Systemic Enzymes helps alter the decline of your Immune System that causes degenerative BreakDown and Chronic Pain that comes in waves like a hot stove. Rutozym, not only helps Heart Health but benefits healthy levels of Fibrinogen and the C-Reative Protein, which is the Inflammatory Response. I had one of my clients on this among other nutrients as she had Rheumatoid Arthritis starting at a very young age. No More, and of medications too. Rheumatoid is an Autoimmune Disease, that's when the body turns against it self. In our arteries, the walls thicken causing hardening of the Arteries. Inholtra Natural Pain Relief has Lubri-Joint, which has all the Glucosamine- Chondroitin, Nag, EFA's, etc, a potent revitalize for those searing Inflammatory issues. All of these should be taken in between meals for better results, and not just one.

    Most of us are aware of Chondroitin and Glucosamine, but we need to incorporate other nutrients as well in order to give Pain the Heave-HO! Since the first drugs recommended is aspirin, and when the pain becomes too severe, other NSAID's are called for. We won't mention them here, but the Big Pharma have made tons of money with high dosages and Life Threatening Disorders of the Poisoning from within. Now Foods has the D-Flame Tm with Cox 2 Inhibitors, full blend with Chinese Medicinals - Scutellaria (Chinese Skullcap) Bromelain, Ginger, Tumeric. These common ailments have natural solutions. Stephen Holt MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology says 'NSAID"s work by inhibiting the Lipoxygenase Conversion that block production of Inflammatory substances, that's why they're called “Cox Inhibitors". With a broad array of Cox 2, Inflama Rest by Source Naturals with Leukotriene Regulation, adds to the protection of the cells from Free Radical Damage, and Adaptogenic Herbs of the American Herbal Family. Hops, Ginger, Milk Thistle, Ayurvedic Ashwagandha and Tumeric, reducing Muscle Tension and the stress of Pain.

    Here's a Big Kicker of the South American Rain Forest Herbs by Raintree Nutrition, called Guacatonga, even for Ulcers, Reflux, and Inflammatory Skin Problems. Another one is called Iporuru is for Pain, Arthritis, and Rheumatism. Getting back to the Americans, Jarrow has the Cox 2 TAME, with MAX-DHA and Enzyme Inhibitors like Devils Claw, White Willow (Natural Aspirin) Green Tea and Resveratrol. MSM a popular Anti-Inflammatory by Tropical Oasis is a naturally occurring Sulfur Compound found in plants, contributing to the integrity of your Joints. It is available as a Liquid Lotion to apply or in Ounces as a Nutritious Drink. Planetary Formulas has Flex-Ability 850 mgs, Liquid or Tabs, widely used in Asia as (ShuJin San.) Super Lions Mane (Love that Name) by Maitake Mushroom Wisdom contains Maitake D Fraction, Reishi an excellent Anti-Inflammatory, also with Bioperine, which helps shoot it down to the cells, now a word about Connective tissues and Tendons (Ouch).

    Herb Pharm has Connective Tissue Tonic with Gotu Kola (Centella) Ayurvedic, Dandelion and Milk Thistle (even Gall Bladder help). Country Life with Liga-Tend, considering ligaments and Tendons with Proline, Glycine and Shark Cartilage, and not to be left out with this condition of Swellings is Clear Products formula of Clear Shingles, Herpes, UT'S, a combo of TCM  Herbs and Homeopathics featured on my website under Special Products. Here's a very interesting one Mineral Whey Goat Powder, an Alkaline Electrolyte balancing act, for your Bones, Teeth and Muscle nourishment. So try these more natural ingredients that provide alternatives to the Cox Pathways, instead of the High-Risk NSAID'S, that provide only band-aid solutions. Even so, you can do both if necessary, always remember to protect your Liver. "Age Strong, Live Long,” says Dr. Seth J Baum MD, who feels the Best Course, is Open-Mindedness for greater knowledge in your Commitment To Wellness.

    Tension Headaches are due to Stress and Anxiety, which usually increase during the day of work and pressure and anything else that's upsetting. This also could be connected to Sugar Imbalance.

    The very worst ones are Migraines, also known as "Vascular Disturbances". JAMA (Journal of American Medicine) reports 8.7 million females and 2.6 million males suffer from this disorder. The current treatment options are really not effective. In case you weren't aware, over the counter meds can cause Acetaminophen poisoning for the liver, on long-term usage. Read your labels, Be Safe, and take protective herbs. Better grab these before it gets serious! Liver Support by Now Foods in tincture has all the liver enhancing herbs, and the new one by Now Foods called Liver Detoxifier And Regenerator include Amino Acids, American Indian Herbs, and Chinese Herbs - Dr. Verghese knew what he was formulating with this exclusive formula. According to Dr. Sergey Dzugan MD, Ph.D., Author of "The Migraine Cure, balancing your hormones, with products like Pregnenolone by Source Naturals, which comes in 50 mg and also in Chewable Cherry is a good approach. He also discusses gastrointestinal disorders that could very well be a link between Migraine and the intestinal tract. Gut Flora (Good Flora and Fauna in the intestinal tract) must be maintained. Flora Acidophilus by Sedona Labs., is a complete probiotic with 16 strains of culture. Now coming to one of my favorites, Clear Products has Clear Migraine, which is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) viewing this as an imbalance of QI (chi) and blood. A blend of 14 Chinese herbs, and the active components of Homeopathic Ingredients. (Read more at my website at

    There are many more types of Headaches such as Cluster Headaches, (aren't we lucky). They awaken us a night, after being asleep for hours, they usually affect adult males, they can come in clusters or groups of pain. Now Foods and Source Naturals have Relora, which helps to control Headache anxiety and calms down those tight muscles, which could come from neck stiffness. Tension Headaches are due to Stress and Anxiety, which usually increase during the day of work and pressure and anything else that's upsetting. This also could be connected to Sugar Imbalance. The following are helpful Oregulin by North American Herb & Spice and Sugar Metabolism Compounding Liquid Tincture by Herb Pharm so one can reduce the fogginess of this type of Headache. Some of you who are sensitive to weather conditions, called positive or negative ions, head for the Oxy Boost by Peter Gilliam's Natural Vitality, increasing more Oxygen to the brain and bloodstream from the atmospheric pollution. Reactions to over the counter drugs and household chemicals can also do a nice job of narrowing the blood vessels. Enter Aller-Be -Gone and also Bee Pollen in Bulk Granules, Toss some in your food or shakes. Lots of B Vitamins for nerve control, allergies and energy. And those of us that overdo it, like too much of a good thing Chaser-Plus or Chaser Living Essentials for those Hangover Headaches.

    Now Foods also has an Essential Oil known as Peppermint, just pass some of that along your forehead, In addition Hyland's Headache or White Willow Bark (the natural form of aspirin) by Nature's Way can be very helpful. Teas also can be very comforting, Long Life Teas has the Calming Chamomile Blend and Numi has the Red Mellow Bush for sipping down those Antioxidants, which are always of concern. Don't forget Fish Oils and Vitamin B2 and kick those Headaches in the bud.

    Be careful of foods that are triggers for Headache Allergies, such as Red Wine, caffeine, chocolate, cheese, alcohol, and dried fruits that are preserved with sulfites (could be toxic for us headachy ones)

    Varicose Veins in an Unfortunate Place - Hemorrhoids Support

    Hemorrhoids Support

    Hemorrhoids Support

    Varicose Veins in an Unfortunate Place

    Hemorrhoids are either inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external), this is no fun! An internal Hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body to become irritated and painful.
    Click here for more products for Hemorrhoids Support

    What are Hemorrhoids? Hemorrhoids are normally present in blood vessels in and around the anus and lower rectum that stretch and become swollen under pressure. This is a very common occurrence in both men and women. About half the population over 50 years of age has Hemorrhoids. They are also very common among pregnant women as the pressure of the fetus in the abdomen with hormonal changes cause the Hemorrhoidal vessels to enlarge. Applying Natures Answer Hemorrhoid Cream to those sore affected tissues helps with the pain and itching. Hemorrhoids are either inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external), this is no fun! An internal Hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body to become irritated and painful. Nelson Homeopathic Products has the popular Hemorrhoid Cream 1 fluid Oz with Calendula for soothing and even Apricot Oil (full of Vitamin A) for tortuous tissues. The most common symptom is bright red blood covering a stool and other symptoms include painful swellings or a hard lump that results when a blood clot forms. Check with your Doc. This condition is known as Thrombosed external Hemorrhoids. King Bio-Natural Medicine in a 2 fluid Ozs has called Hemorrhoid Relief- relief for even the protruding ones and combines this with other Homeopathic ingredients for bleeding and hurting tissues. Increased pressure and swellings may result from straining to move the bowels. Other contributing factors besides pregnancy include heredity, aging (who said that?) and Chronic constipation or even from diarrhea. Naturade has Softex Stool Softener helps keep this softly as you go, with Prune and Fig Powders, Apple Pectin (good fibers) and Slippery Elm Bark (stomach enhancer). Hemorrhoids are diagnosed at any time bleeding or blood is seen. There could be other conditions involved such as digestive issues and even colorectal cancer. Hemorrhoid Suppositories by Boiron with 12 suppositories to insert into the rectum has all the Homeopathic Herbs and Astringents for calming those symptoms. Taken orally Hemorrhoids by Hylands in 100 tiny tabs, easy to take, melts in your mouth. All Homeopathies can be taken with your meds, not at the same time though. Placing pressure on your veins every day without realizing it, standing for long periods of time puts stress on the lower half of the body and over a period of time can cause venous insufficiencies. Since millions are spent each year on using lubricants to lessen irritation, over the counter drug store products may lessen the pain only slightly.

    Natures Way has EFA’S Super Lignan, a Flax Oil, cold-pressed 100% organic to add to your cereals and salads or just pop a tablespoon in your mouth. Now Foods has a double pack of the 90 soft gels Molecularly Distilled Omega-3, keeping your insides lubricated, not letting everything dry out, good for Hair, Skin, Joints and inner tissues. Easing your Vein Pain or The Hemorrhoids from Hell, Enzymatic Therapy has Better Veins, formerly known as Aorta-Glycan, these are the GAG (Glycosaminoglycans) powerful support nutrients for maintaining the integrity of the body’s vessels and for treating Hemorrhoids. Studies have shown this could be the nutrient of the first choice for non-invasive treatments. Fiber, the structural part of plant foods not broken down by the digestive system, includes stems, leaves, seeds and plant secretions is an excellent natural laxative providing bulk and absorbing water, making the stools soft and easy to eliminate. Yerba Prima with its Psyllium Husks in powder must be drunk immediately, or throw into your shake or sprinkle on breakfast foods. Fiber Plus Powder also by Yerba Prima, with its apple cinnamon flavors, 5 Fibers and Cleansing Herbs helps draw everything out for smooth landings. Fi Pro-Bio Efa Flax Seeds by Health From The Sun has not only the Flax Seed Fibers but also the Omega 3's Fatty Acids. They are all cold-milled Flax Seeds (no heat involved) that can be sprinkled or mixed with any foods, a delicious way to get all the essentials. Bathrooms are not reading rooms. In some people's houses, they look like libraries. Too much time sitting promotes engorgement and varicosities of anal veins. Natures Secret, Multi-Fiber comes in 275 tablets with 13 Cleansing Fibers, 5 Cleansing Herbs to go! They also feature the Ultimate Fiber, no gumming up allowed, easy to take, just throw some in your glass or even your water bottle. Peter Gillhams Natural Vitality, you can't have natural vitality if one is bothered by the pain of Hemorrhoids, has the very popular Natural Calm. 1 A tablespoon is 615 mg of Magnesium - calm yourself to go! It’s the Natural Calm Solution for those that can't sit still long enough to go. The nervous system is whacked, especially with strange bathrooms. Work with other products mentioned here for pain. Another effective drink is Baywood, Cal-Mag Fizz also good for cramping muscles and calming the nervous system. Other Magnesium that you can take in caps is Now Foods or Twin Labs Magnesium 400, This Means 400 Mgs in 1 cap. Depending on the person, some need to take 1 cap 3X a Day, others 2 caps 3X a day and some may only need it at night. It works, take it from one who knows. I put a lot of my clients on. Poor absorption can also be an accomplice in the Hemorrhoid Scenario. If you don't absorb your food, structural integrity throughout the body’s blood vessels suffers without the production of Digestive Juices and Enzymes. To stimulate the passage of foods through the intestines NATREN has DIGESTA-LAC, Dairy, and Non-Dairy with the digesting Probiotics for the hardcore ones that gobble their food and eat too fast, expelling gas and burping and can't go! This is a powder, the better way to take, just throw it down your throat a little at a time or put in water. It does help! Peter Gillhams Natural Vitality has the Digestion Essentials to get nourishment down to your cells and to carry out your system's biological processes with all the important Enzymes including Pancreatin. Honso USA/Japanese Herbal Kampo has Kampo 4digestive Intestine Harmony, old Asian Medicine complete with a combination of Oriental Herbs for your intestinal tract to work more efficiently. Give your Liver a brand new lease on Life from accumulating toxins and being afraid to go with hurtful Hemorrhoids through Peter Gillhams Liver Rejuvenator for the detoxifying center of the body in order to survive this enormous toxin challenge called Congested Liver in Chinese Herbology, Planetary Formulas with Bupleurum Liver Cleanse grabs it all for deep internal cleansing, also well for eye health. For better movements - here's the famous Smooth Move Tea by Traditional Medicinals. It has the Senna and other plant movers such as Aloe, Buckthorn, Cascara Sagrada and Rhubarb, smooth sailings on this one. Yogi Teas has Easy Move formerly called Get Regular. All the Ayurvedic Herbs of Triphala not only help the colon but digestion too with all-around efforts for detoxing and cleansing making it easier to go. What about Pet Problems? Nutrition Now has Pet Acidophilus for Digestion with Dog and Puppy Powder, for cranky times, stomach and digestive upsets gas and even diarrhea. King Bio Natural Products has the Pet Foul Gas And Stool Relief-all in one, 4 Fluid Ozs for gassed out ones and relief in sight for going.

    Now that you are more aware of venous insufficiencies, preventing of the recurrence of Hemorrhoids needs to be achieved thro changing those conditions, drinking more water, taking more fiber, taking control of the Standard American Diet (SAD) with good Nutrition and Exercise, otherwise, you may again find at a future date, Constipation and a new crop of Hemorrhoids.

    Homeopathy, Specialties, Sundries - Homeopathy is extracted from plants and other natural ingredients, given in minute doses.


    Homeopathic Support

    Homeopathy, Specialties, Sundries

    Homeopathy is extracted from plants and other natural ingredients, given in minute doses. It works on something known as the "Law of Similars" and "Let likes cured by Likes". Check the handy reference guide at the bottom of this article.
    Click here for more products for Homeopathic Support

    Homeopathy was discovered by the German Physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the early 1800s, and disillusioned by what they called the medical field at the time. None of their potions offered the body a chance to heal itself with its own healing powers. Dr. Hahnemann knew that there existed medicine that could work with the body and assist it to overcome illness. In fact, there was great interest in Homeopathy when a crisis of typhoid fever took over in Germany and Dr. Hahnemann's medicine had the highest cure rate. All the physicians of the time became very interested. The word spread throughout Germany, France, England, Europe, Asia, India, and the United States. Upon learning this, the pharmaceutical companies began producing (OTC) over the counter drugs. This illusion of just pop the miracle pill and become well was what this was all about, brainwashing! Now in the 2000"s we realize there are no miracles, diseases are more rampant than ever before, and the need for natural medicine that works with your body and not against it, since one cannot cure with chemicals. Drugs do nothing to stimulate the healing process. Yes, they do suppress the symptoms, and sometimes we do need them, especially if we have a lot of pain. Homeopathy is extracted from plants and other natural ingredients, given in minute doses, to respond to fighting for its life. Excellent for all ages, including children, and more mature ones that do not like to swallow pills, easy to take, usually just melts in your mouth. You cannot over stimulate a gland or an organ with Homeopathy, it just brings it back to normal functioning, with no known side effects.

    It is given in very low potencies, in multiple doses of 6X or 30X, this means that much dilution of the remedies. It works on something known as the "Law of Similars" and "Let likes cured by Likes". Public recognition has increased dramatically; Evan the FDA (not that we care) has recognized the remedies as over the counter forms of Natural Medicine. All Homeopathies are compatible with medications. However, do not take them at the same time.

    Energy Support

    Energy Support

    Energy Support by Now Foods

    Are you dragging?
    Depleted because of health issues?

    No wonder why we are pooped! Some of the causes of depletion are dieters, or too much of a good thing, diuretics, mal-absorption, gastritis, chemicals in the environment, multiple sensitivity, and second-hand smoke among other issues.

    Are you dragging? Depleted because of health issues? Are Drug medication side-effects and some other potential side effects bringing you down? Environmental pollution with allergic sensitivity to the weather, hormones in men and women tied to exhaustion and imbalances, etc are some of the factors that require clearing the liver of toxins. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) it's called Bupleurum Liver Cleanse by Planetary Formulas, even my Hep-C clients did not know that the herb is dynamite for our biggest detoxifier, the Liver.

    The 2-part Natures Secret Ultimate Cleanse clears the liver of toxins and also eliminates the five elements that store all the poisons in our sewage system. With our impaired dietary involvement and with all that's going on, who feels like eating? Especially when we are more mature, not only our metabolism slows down but so does our digestion. The enzymes like Vitalzyme with SERRAPEPTASE, a special type of enzyme that really gets your digestion moving, so everything you put in can travel to those cells and nourish them. SERRAPEPTASE is also known for breaking up clogs in the arteries. Not nourished? Where is your Energy? Also, for those of you who are meat-eaters, Now Foods has Super Enzymes with Ox Bile to help digest animal foods. And then there are the Faddish Foods we might have enjoyed with little or no nutritional value. No wonder why we are pooped! Some of the causes of depletion are dieters, or too much of a good thing, diuretics, mal-absorption, gastritis, chemicals in the environment, multiple sensitivity, and second-hand smoke among other issues. Tumeric, an Ayurvedic herb, could help clear the smoke pollution. It does seem like everything is against us pursuing quality nutrients that put back our vim and vigor. Considering the nutritional benefits your whole body needs, Ginseng Revitalizer by Planetary Formulas provides several types of energy support with various Ginsengs, in fatigue-related conditions, known as Tai Chi. Chi is your body's, Life Force. Fatigue to Fantastic Energy Fusion Drink by Enzymatic Therapy formulated by Dr. Teittlebaum, who wrote the book Fatigued to Fantastic, is also an excellent supplement.

    Here we mention some of the pharmaceuticals that take out the nutrients from your body, deplete your immune system and makes you feel weak:-

    Antibiotics deplete all the good flora and fauna out of the digestion tract. Those depleted include Vitamin C, minerals, all the B vitamins. Antacids and Analgesics deplete the body of Omega 3's and cause liver damage over the long term. Cardiovascular drugs deplete Minerals, Vitamin B's, C's and EFA"s. Cox-2 Inhibitors deplete EFA's, Minerals, Vit E.  Cholesterol Drugs deplete Co-Enzyme 10, A, D and B12. Thyroid Meds deplete all Minerals and may cause Bone Loss. And this is just the tip of the iceberg! Stay Tuned More to come!

    The above are just the tip of the iceberg! Stay Tuned More to come!

    Food Supplements The Pursuit of Health as Preventive Medicine

    The Pursuit of Health as Preventive Medicine

    Food Supplements by Now Foods

    Regular medicine can no longer treat us like "Auto Parts"

    Since we eat too much Acid food and build up Free Radicals and our immune system becomes weak in a decayed internal environment.

    Never before in the history of mankind has so much knowledge been discovered in all our media coverage. Regular medicine can no longer treat us like "Auto Parts". Our own responsibility knows that health and longevity are in our hands. For the control of our body chemistry with our "Acid & Alkaline" balance, Now Foods has Phyto Foods in tabs or powder. When mom said to eat all your vegetables, we have all of that, called the SuperFoods, Wheatgrass, Spirulina, Chlorella, all in concentrated form, which includes all the veggies we are familiar with and a lot more. Dr. Christopher's has the Vital Green and Food Science Of Vermont also has a good combination of all the Greens. All of my cancer clients are on green food in powder or tabs because cancer cannot live in Oxygenated Cells. So imagine what your body does for protection against this epidemic of our century. It's so important for PH. Balance, which means a P.H. of 7 is neutral, Alkaline is usually 6.5. What does all of this mean? With acid blood, the heart relaxes, when the blood is Alkaline, the heart contracts. Since we eat too much Acid food and build up Free Radicals, our immune system becomes weak in a decayed internal environment. Alive Multi, with or without iron by Natures Way, has all the Greens and Carotenoids for our protection. Alive also comes in an Effervescent Drink, in a Lemon Lime or Cinnamon Apple. Just like you know what, that fizzes up.

    The Eye Disease Case-Control Study from JAMA (Journal of American Med. Assoc.) of 11/04 says tons of Fruits & Vegetables (we just don't get enough) could help prevent Eye Diseases because Lutein and Zeaxanthin come from our Green Foods. Naturade has Vegetable Protein Shake Soy free. Did you know how good all those Greens are? And by the way, what do the cows eat? Green Foods are exceptional for Bone Building and Anemia (which shows up in the more mature, as being tired all the time). We need to transport that oxygen to all the cells. Rainbow Light has a Whole Food Supplement with all the Foods to build up those RBCs (Red Blood Cells) needed for your master program of cell production. You can check your P.H. balance with Advanced Nutritional Innovations Salvia Strips 180 STRIPS for testing. Your Amino Acids in Whey Protein by Now Foods is a complete range of AMINOS. A Good Source of the Omega, which is also a Whole Food is Nows Omega 3-6-9 in Liquid or Caps which is the balance of all the Important Oils, Borage, Flax, Fish. And another one is a Cox 2 Inhibitor by Now Foods, called D-Flame. All are Anti-Inflammatory Herbs. I am very impressed by this one. D-Flame helps with Lots of Health Issues and Immune Disorders and certain Swellings. And for the Young ones, Yummi Bears has Whole Food Fruit & Veggie Blend called Juice For Life. One word of caution, if one is on a blood thinner made be careful of the Oils. This is always a work in progress and a battle every day for a Healthier You.

    A Beginners Guide to Creatine - World’s No.1 Supplement to Improve Strength and Athletic Performance

    Creatine is one of the most well-researched fitness supplements in the world proven for its efficiency in doing two things: boosting strength and building mass. It is one of the few dietary supplements that is considered safe and legal which is why it is liberally used by athletes in international leagues like NFL and NBA.

    It is the #1 supplement in the world that can be used to increase the strength levels and athletic performance in the gym if you are a fitness enthusiast. But what is Creatine? How does it help the athletic performance? Read on to know answers to all the frequently asked question on Creatine:

    What is Creatine?

    Creatine is an amino acid-like substance that naturally occurs in our muscle cells. Yes, our body produces Creatine. Every human body has a specific amount of Creatine stored inside their body which depends on their meat intake and also hormone profile.

    What does Creatine do and how does it help boost strength and athletic performance?

    Creatine is stored in the form of phosphocreatine in the muscle cells which turns into ATP when the body requires energy to perform quick and intense bursts of activities. The ATP is the energy currency of the body just like the quick liquid money that you carry in your wallet. You can perform the short bursts of strenuous activities until these ATP stores dissipate. 

    So when you are supplementing with Creatine you are increasing the liquid money in your wallet that is boosting the energy stores in your body. This energy boost helps you last longer in physical and high-intensity exercises (weight lifting), thereby quickly accelerating the muscle strength in the due course.

    What are the benefits of Creatine supplement?

    Now when you are body can perform more strenuous activities for longer periods, you are putting your body in a state of physical stress. The human body’s way of coping up with this physical stress is to build muscle mass, improve strength and make additional changes that are beneficial to the exercise performance. Following are some such Creatine benefits:

    1. Bigger muscles, due to water retention.
    2. Improves your workload in the gym.
    3. Increases cell hydration and signaling.
    4. Decreases in protein breakdown (increases muscle)
    5. Improves human growth potential.

    How to take Creatine?

    The simplest way to incorporate Creatine in your supplement regimen is to add 3 to 5 grams of Creatine Monohydrate to your protein supplement or any Carbohydrate source. Ingesting Creatine with Carbohydrate + Creatine is considered an efficient process as the insulin levels further increase the uptake of Creatine. Though it may take at least 3 weeks to completely witness the benefits, this is the best method for Creatine for beginners. As Creatine retains water in the body, it is extremely important to boost the water consumption during Creatine cycling to the amount of at least 3litres per day.

    There is another way to incorporate Creatine which is to load 20 grams Creatine (5 grams*4) for one week and follow it up with Creatine dosage of 3-5 grams every day. Though this process brings quick results, it may not be suitable for everyone and it is recommended to consult a physician in case you would like to follow this one. Micronized Creatine Monohydrate is considered the best Creatine form in the market to supplest.

    What are the best brands for Creatine?

    Creatine is the cheapest and most effective dietary supplement in the market which is why it is extremely important to use quality Creatine supplements. At HerbsPro we work with the world’s premium brands to help people benefit from the world’s best fitness supplements.

    We specially import Creatine supplements from No.1 Creatine supplements from these manufacturers are made in the world’s leading laboratories and their products are the benchmark for quality and efficiency.
