Tips for staying Healthy this Holiday Season

Well, it's that time of year again when the weather is starting to change.
The leaves are turning colors and falling, the air is cooler, and you can almost smell the pumpkin pie and turkey cooking. Not to mention, the best part of all, it's time for family and friends to come together and enjoy the holidays! Unfortunately, we know that with the change of weather also comes the not so fun stuff. Such as, colds, the flu, and other annoying sicknesses that will throw a wrench into your holiday plans and ruin all the fun. So how can you prevent getting sick and keeping your family healthy this year? Well, there are some things that you can do to keep your loved one's sickness free this time of year. 

First of all, exercise is essential, and I know that it's hard to make time in your busy schedule, but it will be worth it! Not only does exercise help keep you physically fit, but it also helps in relieving stress and aids in building your immune system. Make sure you and your family stay active. Our health and the health of our family is so important! It's ok to start small and then slowly increase your workouts. Don't over exhort yourself and remember it's better to start with baby steps and gradually improve than to not do anything at all.

Next, we will discuss alcoholic consumption:
Typically during the Holiday season, many people choose to enjoy some alcoholic beverages. However, drinking in excess, even just on occasion, can cause serious health issues. If you do decide to indulge yourself in a drink, try to limit your intake and do not exceed ten glasses a week.

During the flu season, it's essential to keep good hygiene by washing your hands thoroughly often and keeping your hands away from your mouth, nose, and eyes. Also, it's important to remember to cover your cough & sneezes. One way to do this is to cough/sneeze in the crook of your arm. Furthermore, during the Holidays, there are many parties and get-togethers, and that means lots of kisses, hugs and, handshakes, and this is one of the main ways of spreading germs and viruses. It's a good idea to keep hand sanitizer with you and even place a bottle out for your guests to use, this will help prevent sickness and the spread of viruses. If you can, try to avoid people that you know are sick and this goes both ways if you are sick, try to stay away from others and get plenty of rest at home.

Make sure to take care of yourself

A lot of us push ourselves, and I guess it's only human, but it's crucial to take time to let your body relax and unwind. If not, you risk exhaustion. Not to mention the stress it puts on your body and the fact that if your body is worn out, it weakens your immune system. This can make it harder for your body to fight off illnesses. Taking a stroll in the evening to relax and get some fresh air can be very beneficial for your body and a great way to relieve stress. Another way to unwind is merely reading a good book or pampering yourself to a day at the spa or even a nice bubble bath.

Finally taking a good quality multivitamin is an excellent way to help keep you and your family healthy this holiday season. You can find multivitamins for your whole family. Vitamins contain zinc and other ingredients that strengthen your immune system and help your body in so many ways. It is also beneficial if you are suffering from any vitamin deficiency. In conclusion, keeping good hygiene, exercising, and consuming the right multivitamin are excellent ways of protecting your family this season. 
Consider taking colloidal Silver during the holidays to help protect yourself from Colds and Flu.

Turmeric For Pain Management

Many of us suffer from arthritis and joint pain with seemingly no real help in sight.
Well that's simply not true...

Turmeric To The RESCUE!!!  

"Turmeric has amazing ANTI- Inflammatory properties and has been used for pain management for thousands of years in eastern countries but did not become popular in western medicine until the early 1900's."

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) and several other species of the curcuma genus grow wild in the forests of Southern Asia including IndiaIndonesiaIndochina, nearby Asian countries, and some Pacific Islands including Hawaii.  All of these areas have traditional culinary and medicinal uses going back to pre-history. 

"There are LOTS of choices for supplemental Turmeric, but be sure to check the purity.
Turmeric for pain management should be a standardized extract and be of no less than a 450 mg tablet or capsule."


But don't take my word for it...
Here is a claim on Turmeric from a big name in PAIN.

From The Arthritis Foundation.
"In a small 2012 pilot study, a curcumin product called BCM-95 reduced joint pain and swelling in patients with active RA better than diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID)."

Turmeric benefits from the Arthritis Foundation.

If you still need another reason to use Turmeric for inflammation related to arthritis instead of other "over the counter medications" 
take a look at this...

    Common ibuprofen side effects may include:
    • upset stomach, mild heartburn, nausea, vomiting;
    • bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation;
    • dizziness, headache, nervousness;
    • mild itching or rash; or.
    • ringing in your ears.

I personally like to take Tumeric powder as well as pills.
This product is one of my favorites.

This amazing tasting powder has Tumeric, Boswelia, cinnamon and a few others, and mixes well into a tall glass of almond milk.
great for after dinner pain relief. 

If that alone isn't enough to convince you well...    I don't know what will.
Turmeric is all natural, natures pain reliever.

Enough said.

Tumeric is typically safe for just about anyone, but as with anything, you should consult your doctor if you are taking prescription drugs. 

(legal disclaimer) "High doses of turmeric can act as a blood thinner and cause stomach upset. Avoid turmeric/curcumin if you take blood thinners such as warfarin (Coumadin), are about to have surgery, are pregnant or have gallbladder disease."

Dont eat the white stuff!

(Click here to get Natrol Carb Intercept for 17.50!)

We have all heard the starches and carbs in some of our favorite foods are whats causing us to put on those extra pounds, but I'm not about to give up my chicken and rice just yet.

Our bodies need carbohydrates to function, but when we take in more than we need it stores them up as fat.
When we eat foods like breads, cereals, rice and pasta an enzyme in our stomach breaks that starch down into simple sugars so that we can absorb it.

What can we do about this?

Well I'm glad you asked!
White Kidney Bean Extract (Phaseolus vulgaris)  has been proven to inhibit the enzyme responsible for digesting starch into sugar.
As a result, the carbs pass through your body like fiber, you're none the wiser.

By taking a simple Carb inhibitor with a glass of water before a starchy meal you can cut your daily sugar intake in half!

Product Summery:

My opinion: 
"This is a genius way to eat some of the things we like without feeling guilty." 

Price: Good
  17.50 for 60 Capsules is a good deal considering you probably 
                      won't have to use them but once or twice a week.

Suggested use: 
"Use this product to help control unrecognized sugar intake from starchy foods."
