Are Headaches Stopping You?

A lot of attention is placed on vitamins and not enough on minerals. ALL the cells in your body depend on minerals as they are the spark plugs of your body.If you have enough minerals, your body can manufacture most vitamins it needs.

Working, exercizing, playing, walking, even working or driving in air-conditioned spaces cause the burn-up or excretion of minerals which can cause dehydration.

Drinking tons of liquids – even water – and still unable to quench your thirst is a sure sign that you are dehydrated, probably not from lack of liquid but from the lack of minerals.  Read more on Are Headaches Stopping You?…

What Has Calcium Got To Do With Sunstroke?

What Has Calcium Got To Do With Sunstroke?

Plenty.

Would you believe that tissue calcium starvation is the source of sunstroke?

Here’s how it works. Most people get their vitamin D from the sun. The ultraviolet rays from the sun convert skin oil to vitamin D. When you get too much, you get a condition called hypervitaminosis D.

Should you get vitamin D but no vitamin F (essential fats), your blood calcium level will increase at the expense of the tissue calcium level because vitamin D not only gets calcium from your stomach but, when you have a deficiency of vitamin F, it also draws it out of your tissues and deposits it back into your blood.

That’s why people who are in the sun a lot get thick skin. They’re not getting enough vitamin F which is necessary to pull calcium into the tissues. Read more on What Has Calcium Got To Do With Sunstroke?…

Dead If You Do, Dead If You Don’t

People are addicted to drugs for many reasons, medical, street, alcohol, but when they try to give up, for many it can become a case of “dead if you do, dead if you don’t”. Giving up can be as much hell as being on them.

But, did you know that drug withdrawal can be made much easier than most people realize?

Using drugs of any sort depletes your body of so many nutrients that life can become very intolerable and this can make it almost impossible for a person to give up their drugs. It really is a case of “dead if you do, dead if you don’t”.  Read more on Dead If You Do, Dead If You Don’t…

Don’t Keep Filling The Cracks, Fix Those Foundations!

I have been helping people with their health for more than 30 years. In all those years, the common denominator with almost everyone was that the symptoms they were experiencing – be it aches and pains, PMS, menopausal and andropausal (male menopause), hyperactivity in children or even adults, an inability to sleep, stress, headaches, to name a few – were caused either by deficiencies or excesses.

Excesses actually, in most cases, also boiled down to deficiencies as excesses of the wrong things like sugar, refined carbohydrates, medication, chemical exposure, toxins, drugs, alcohol or even imbalanced supplementation create deficiencies. So, when all is said and done, we are mostly dealing with deficiencies.  Read more on Don’t Keep Filling The Cracks, Fix Those Foundations!…

Magnesium: What is it?

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body and is essential to your good health. Approximately 50% of your total body magnesium is found in your bones. The other half is found predominantly inside the cells of your body tissues and organs. Only 1% of magnesium is found in your blood, but your body works very hard to keep your magnesium blood levels constant.

Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in your body!

It helps your body to maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps your bones strongRead more on Zap That Low Blood Sugar and Diabetes With The ‘Mag!…

Kill That Pain Now!

A very little known fact is that calcium is a natural painkiller par excellence! It is one item that I would not be without at any time.
Did you know that the old medical text books recommended injections of calcium gluconate for the sharp stabbing pains of pleurisy (inflammation of the linings around the lungs), a pain that is apparently one of the worst that can be experienced.
