WHAT’S CHINESE MEDICINE? (Part 2)

How are you, my dear friend? Are you taking care of your health?. You “think” that you are healthy! (Refer to post: Why take vitamins? in our vitamins blog category and post: Detecting Dormant Diseases before they strike! in our Prevention blog category). You should take care of your health, my friend. It is very important!

Following Part 1, let me discuss, my dear reader on the causes of Disease in Chinese Medicine and the Therapeutic modalities used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Important!. Ancient Chinese Medicine did not recognize viruses or bacteria as triggers of disease or disorders. Of course, since Chinese Medicine is a very pragmatic medicine, if the chinese had know of viruses and bacteria it would have become part of the diagnostic system. Instead, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) recognizes  influences, which cause disharmony in yin/yang, the Essential Substances, the Organ Systems and the Channels (TCM belief about a path through which the Life-energy known as qi flows).

The Six Pernicious Influences: Heat, Cold, Wind, Dampness, Dryness and finally Summer Heat are external climatic forces that can invade the body and create disharmony in the mind, body, spirit. For instance, if you are exposed to excess Heat or Cold or Wind for a long time, or if you are exposed to such Influences when your body is already weak, you may develop an illness. This illness, triggered by External Influences, can migrate inward and become more serious as a slight cold may become pneumonia. This happens when the External Pernicious Influences overpower the body’s natural protection against disease.

Now, let us explore the Six Pernicious Influences, my dear friend.

1-Cold: When hypothermia hits a skier or let us say.. a mountain climber, musle control fades, motion becomes slow and awkward, fatigue sets in, the body shuts down. That is the same effect that the Cold Pernicious Influence has, It saps the body’s energy and makes movements cumbersome. The tongue becomes pale; the pulse is slow. A person may develop a fear of cold and feel like sleeping in a curled up position. Cold is Yin, my dear reader and when it invades the body, it chills all or part of it. If there’s pain, it’s eased by warmth. When External Cold attacks the body, acute illness may develop, along with chills, fever and body aches. When the External Cold moves inward and becomes an interior disharmony it is associated with a chronic condition that produces a pale face, lethargy and grogginess, a craving for heat and sleeping for longer than usual periods of time.

2-Heat: disorders feel like you have been playing tennis for two hours in the blazing sun. You are weary and at the same time, strangely cranked up. You can not stop talking about the game, but your words stick in your mouth. You do not feel like yourself again until you cool down and quench your thirst. Heat disorders cause overactive Yang functions or insufficient Yin functions. They are generally associated with bodily heat, a red face, hyperactivity and talkativeness, fever, and thirst for cold liquids and a rapid pulse. Symptoms include carbuncles and boils, dry mouth and thirst. Confused speech and delirium arise when Heat attacks the Shen.

3-Dampness: Think about what happens to your backyard, my dear reader, when it rains for two days, it becomes soggy and water collects in stagnant pools. That is how Dampness affects the body. Damp is heavy and expansive, Dampness blocks the flow of life energy and causes a stuffy chest and abdomen. When External Dampness invades, it enters the Channels and causes stiff joints and heavy limbs. When Dampness invades the Spleen, it can cause upset stomach, nausea, a lack of appetite, a swollen abdomen and diarrhea. Interior Dampness caused by either the penetration of External Dampness to the Interior or by a breakdown in the spleen’s transformation of fluids is associated with mucous, which in Chinese Medicine is more than simply bodily secretions. It is produced when the Splen or Kidney is beset with disharmony and can cause obstructions and produce tumors, coughing, and if it invades the Shen, can lead to erratic behavior and insanity. Once Dampness has taken root, it is hard to displace.

4-Dryness: is a frequent partner with Heat; just think, my dear friend, about the cracked bottom of a dried up riverbed. But where Heat creates redness and warmth, Dryness creates evaporation and dehydration. External Dryness invading the body may create respiratory problems such as asthmatic breathing and a dry cough, acute pain and fever.

5-Summer Heat feels like the humid, oppressive weather that creates the Dog Days of August.

As you know, Rev. Galas. We are getting the same Summer Heat (80 to 100 degrees) in “O” Town, Mickey mouse, sunny Florida. Life 2 life vitamins.

It (Summer Heat) attacks the body after exposure to extreme heat and causes a sudden high fever and total lethargy. It is always an External influence and often arises along with Dampness.

6-Wind: animates the body, stirring it from repose into motion just as wind moves the leaves of a tree. When Wind enters the body, it is usually joined to another influence such as Cold. If the body is infiltrated by Wind, the first symptoms usually appear on the skin, in the lungs, or on the face. Tics, twitches, fear of drafts, headaches and a stuffed-up nose are symptoms. When External Wind invades the body more deeply, it can cause seizures, ringing in the ears and dizziness.

Therapeutic Modalities used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The various therapeutic modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) include dietary; massage therapy, heat therapies, exercise, meditation, acupuncture, and herbal medicine. Heat therapies include the use of moxibustion, which is the burning of the common herb mugwort (artemesia vulgaris) over certain areas of the body to stimulate or warm these areas. Exercise therapy ranges from martial arts to more subtle forms of movement such as t’ai chi and qi gong. Acupuncture, perhaps the most well known form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in the United States, is the art of inserting fine sterile metal filiform needles into certain points in order to control the flow of energy in the meridians (see Channels as above).

WHAT’S CHINESE MEDICINE? (Part 1)

 

Like Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese Medicine, natural healing concept is based on mind, body and spirit for your Total health and Wellness, my dear friend.

Chinese Medicine is the longest existing continious medical system practiced in the World with over 3000 years of history.

Chinese medicine is a complete system of medicine with its forms of diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and therapies. Chinese medicine views the body as an energetic system in dynamic balance. Qi (say…chee), which can be translated as energy or life force, flows in a regular pattern through a system of channels or meridians to all parts of the body.

When the flow of Qi is unimpeded there is harmony, balance, and good health. When there are Qi blockages, too much or too little qi, there is an imbalance which can lead to disharmony and disease.

Chinese medicine helps restore the body to balance and works on an energetic level to affect all aspects of a person: mind, body, spirit. The beauty of chinese medicine, my dear friend, is that it can be used to correct imbalances that have become illness and pain, or even correct, believe or not, imbalances prior to the appearance of symptoms, preventing disease.

Chinese medicine treatments address imbalances using food therapy/diet, acupuncture, herbal remedies, Chinese exercise, and meditation along with Western therapies.

The Philosophy of Chinese Medicine

My dear reader, the primary goal of traditional chinese medicine (TCM) is to create wholeness and harmony within a person, allowing the mind, body, spirit to heal itself. Chinese philosophy states that there are two polar principles of life, yin and yang, and that are dialectically opposed to each other. Imbalances of yin and yang within an individual may be reflected as illness, because the body is considered a microcosm of the world.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) defines the physiological component of illness using the concept Qi (again, say…chee, my dear friend), Qi as vital energy, Xue (blood), Jing (Essence), and Shen (Spirit), as well as Organ Systems. What are Organ Systems?, you might say, my dear reader. Organ Systems are domains within the body that govern particular body tissues, emotional states and activities. For instance, as is the Western kidneys, the kidney system manages fluid metabolism. In Chinese medicine, the kidney system is also responsible for reproduction, growth and regeneration. The bones, inner ear, marrow, teeth, and lumbar area are all part of the kidney system. Frequent urination, low back pain, and the emotional state of fear may be associated with the kidney system. Please, note, my dear friend, that each Organ system has functions that are unique.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) theory postulates that it is the internal ability of the body to remain strong that is the key to health. In this theory, my dear friend, people are born with a certain amount of original Qi (say..chee, come on!, do not be shy!), which is easily depleted as energy is used by the body and not replaced. It is not easy to increase the original Chee, I mean Qi, and a person must work hard during life just to retain it. Chinese exercise programs along with proper nutrition and sleep habits are highly recommended for maintaining original Qi.

Acording to Chinese medical philososhy, if a person consistenly lacks sleep, proper nutrition, abuses drugs or alcohol, or has excessive or unsafe sex, they become deficient in Qi and other substances. When weakened, the person is more susceptible to infection by harmful external pathogens.

In part 2, my dear reader. I will discuss the causes of Disease in Chinese Medicine and the Therapeutic madalities used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

WHAT’S AYURVEDA? (Part 2)

Following Part 1, let me discuss the Ayurveda controversy, their acceptance in the West. How does Ayurveda work, what should you expect from its treatment, what is it good for? Are they any risks?.

Growing awareness in the West of efficacy of Ayurveda herbs and formulations has led to controversy and battles with the western pharmaceutical companies trying to patent these herbs.

Only recently discovered in the West, Ayurvedic herbs such as Neem, Ashwagandha, Tulsi, Shatavari, Tumeric, Amalaki, and Brahmi as well as traditional preparations such as Triphala and Trikatu have long been known to have significant medicinal value without adverse side effects.

Note: The above herbs are available at Life 2 life vitamins, please, contact us, today!

Please, pay attention, my dear reader!. Several pharmaceutical and academic institutions in the West have come into conflict with Indian academic institutions and traditional Ayurvedic practitioners over the intellectual property rights of herbal products researched by the western agencies.

My dear reader, what the pharmaceutical companies and academic institutions in the West did not know is that the Ayurvedic practitioners have known the efficacy of such products  for centuries, yes, my dear friend, for centuries, wait!… and so contend that they carry precedence with regards to patent rights on such products.

Obtaining Potent Efficaciuos, (Heavy-Metal  Free) Ayurvedic herbs.

It has been mostly individual practitioners who procure, grow, dry and prepare these herbs and preparations in an effective, potent manner, whereas commercially available Ayurvedic products have been of substandard quality. it is only recently that a few companies have started producing high quality organic Ayurvedic herbal products. Our Ayurvedic supplements are organic (heavy-metal free). Buy on line now! and save Big or contact us.

Ayurveda (Ayurvedic medicine) is now a recognized medicine in the West. I truly, think, that is about time!.

How does Ayurveda work?

As you know, now, my dear reader. Ayurveda describes three basic  energies that governs our health and well-being, called doshas, present in every person.,

1-Vata: Energy that controls bodily functions associated with motion, including blood circulation, breathing, blinking, and heartbeat. When vata energy is balanced, there is creativity and vitality. Out of balance, vata produces fear and anxiety. 2-Pitta: Energy that controls the body’s metabolic, systems, including digestion, absorption, nutrition, and temperature. In balance, pitta leads to contentment and intelligence. Out of balance, pitta can cause ulcers and arouse anger. 3-Kapha: Energy that controls growth in the body. Its supplies water to all body parts, moisturizes the skin, and maintain the immune system. In balance, kapha is expressed as love. Out of balance, kapha leads to insecurity and envy.

Everybody has vita, pitta and kapha, but, there is a but! usually 1 or 2 are dominant in a particular person. Many things can disturb the energy balance such as stress, unhealthy diet, the weather and strained family relationship.  The disturbance shows up as disease. The Ayurvedic treatments will bring the doshas (vata, pitta and kapha) back into balance. From a western medical perspective, my friend, stress relief seems to be one of the ways Ayurveda works to help fight illness. For instance, studies have found that transcendental meditation (component of Maharishi Ayurveda), lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, slows the aging process, and speeds recovery from illness. Many herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine have antioxidant effects, which means that they may help protect against long term illnesses such as heart disease and arthritis. Buy on line now1 and save on our Best-selling Ayurvedic supplements or contact us. A vegetarian diet, which is believed to be better for your heart than diets containing red meat.

What should you expect from an Ayurvedic treatment?

Ayurvedic treatment focuses in rebalancing the doshas. There are different ways to restore your natural dosha balance, which almost always includes changes in lifestyle, specially diet. There are also more than 20 types of treatment, the most common ones are:

a) Pranayama: Breathing exercises. Practising pranayama helps you feel calm.

b) Abhyanga: rubbing the skin with herbal oil to increase blood circulation and draw toxins out of the body, yes, through the skin.

c) Rasayana: using mantras (repeated words or phrases)  during meditation combined with certain herbs to rejuvenate a person.

d) Yoga: combining pranayama  movement, and meditation. Yoga has been shown to improve circulation, digestion and to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol levels, anxiety, and chronic pain.

e) Pancha Karma: cleansing the body to purify it and reduce cholesterol.

f) Herbal medicines: taking Ayurvedic supplements (herbs) to restore dosha balance. A variety of Ayurvedic herbs are available at Life 2 life vitamins. Buy on line now! and save big or contact us.

What’s Ayurveda good for? 

The ultimate goal of Ayurvedic medicine is to prevent diseases. Studies have suggested that Ayurveda may be effective at reducing the risk of heart disease. For instance, one study found that Ayurveda helped reduce plaque and reverse the thickening of artery walls known as Atherosclesosis in both healthy adults, as well as adults at risk for heart disease. What is Atherosclerosis?. My friend, it is a slow, complex disease in which cholesterol, fats, and other substances build up in the inner lining of an artery. This build up, known as plaque, can lead to heart attack and stroke.

Important!. I would say, a number of Ayurvedic herbal remedies have been examined, though sometimes high quality studies are lacking. For instance, guggul (Commiphora mukul), a traditional Ayurvedic medication used to treat high cholesterol, is widely used in India. It appears to block production of cholesterol in the liver, lowering cholesterol levels. Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) seeds can lower LDL cholesterol, “the bad one” and triglycerides (fats in the blood), and raise LDL cholesterol, “the good one” levels and so on….

Please, note, combining Yoga with a certain Ayurvedic herbal remedy may reduce pain and disability in people with arthritis.

Please, note, my dear reader. Other Ayurvedic herbs are being sudies as treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, asthma, cancer, dementia, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation),herpes, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease, premenstrual syndrome among many other conditions.

Be aware, my dear friend, that Ayurvedic herbs combined with conventional medications may also be helpful for acne, chronic constipation, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, and uterine fibroids.

Are there any risks?

Most Ayurvedic therapies, such as pranayama and rasayana are unlikely to have bad side effects. Ayurvedic herbs, however, may interact with medications, and like all herbs, they are not right for every person.  In addition, heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, have contaminated some Ayurvedic herb supplements. Consult your healthcare practitioner, specially if you take medications.

For your reference: Ayurveda historical evidence can be found in the current books of wisdom known as the Vidas. If you need an Ayurvedic practitioner, please, visit the National Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine (NIAM).

WHAT’S AYURVEDA? (Part 1)

Do you know what is Ayurveda, my friend? if you do not, you are certainly not the only one.

Originated from India. Ayurveda “The Science of Life” also called Ayurvedic medicine is an, I would say, 5,000 or 6,000 years old holistic system of medicine and natural healing. Ayurveda (Ayurvedic medicine) has recently become popular in the the Western World, particularly Europe and the United States. It is focus, on body balance through diet, exercise and body cleansing and also improving health of mind, body and spirit.

Ayurveda, the term, combines two sanskrit words: Ayur, meaning Life and Verda meaning Science, Knowledge and Wisdom.

There are two main types of Ayurveda: Traditional and Maharishi. Maharishi is a version of Traditional Ayurveda  based on translations from the classical texts  by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Both types of Ayurvedic practitioners prescribe herbs, believe that disease results from an imbalance in the doshas (see What’s Ayurveda ?, Part 2), and use many of the same remedies for treating illness. Maharishi Ayurveda, however, emphasizes the role of supreme consciousness good health, and promotes transcendental meditation (TM) as a way to experience the pure consciousness of the universe. It also  highlights the expression of positive emotions and the need to attune your life to the natural rhythms of the body

Good Stuff, indeed, isn’t, my friend? Do not worry, there is more. but first, please, heal any sickness that you might have by natural medicine before considering conventional methods. I do!. My dear Friend, you are responsible of your own health. Read, educate yourself! Do not be a victim of medical ignorance (Don’t be victimized by medical ignorance, post, august 20, 2013).

Now! let me elaborate on Ayurveda, my dear reader. Where was I? oh! yes!

Ayurveda is not just a medical system. It sees human being as an integral part of nature. It beleives that human beings should live in harmony with nature just as the animals and plants do and utilize the laws of nature to create health and balance within. It adheres to this focus in guiding human beings to maintain health by using the inherent principles of nature to bring an individual back into equilibrium with his or her true self.

The ancient texts reveal that Ayurveda was also originally used as a regime to remove obstacles on one’s path to self-realization. At some point the medical began to take priority over the spiritual forms of healing.

Today, the spiritual aspects of Ayurveda have taken a back seat to the medical focus. As Ayurveda becomes more commercially viable, the spiritual aspects may continue to lose ground. Yet there are a growing number of practioners who employ these spiritual therapies and find better results than limiting their approach only to the medical physical realm.

Understanding Ayurveda “The Science of Life”.

Ayurvedic wisdom offers life-enhancing practices as well as herbal medicinal preparations for the health and well-being of the whole human being: body, mind and soul. It is much more than just a system to treat symptoms  or physical illness.

Ayurveda describes three fundamentals energies that governs our health and well-being, and are seen both in our internal and external environments. Called ‘doshas’ these three energies are known as: Vata (Air/Wind) Pitta (Fire/Sun) Kapha (Earth and Water).

Ayurveda sees these primary forces in a unique combination in every individual, and as relating to the characteristics of our mind and body. Every individual has a unique proportion of these three forces that shape our nature.

These doshas also have the characteristic of being: movement (Vata), transformation (Pitta) and structure (Kapha). According to Indian beliefs, we are all made up, believe it or not, of unique proportions of Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The ratios of the doshas vary in each individual. Because of this, Ayurveda sees each person as a special mixture that accounts for our diversity. Ayurveda give us a model to look at each individual as a unique make up of the three doshas (and sub-doshas), and thereby design treatment protocols that specifically address a person’s health challenges.

Herbs often recommended to supplement the nutritional requirements on a regular basis to build and maintain a healthy physiology. A variety of Ayurvedic supplements are available at Life 2 life vitamins. Buy on line now! and save a great deal on our Best-selling Ayurvedic supplements or contact us. As some of the Ayurvedic herbs are now recognized to be the most potent and, yes, powerful adaptogens on the planet and since stress is now known to be a significant factor in over 80% of all the illnesses. These herbs are essential in any health program designed to promote and maintain a healthy human body. When any of the doshas become aggravated, thereby upsetting the natural harmony for the individual, Ayurveda suggests specific lifestyle and nutritinal guidelines ae well as specific medicinal herbs to assist the individual in reducing and rebalancing the dosha that has become excessive or out of balance.

Ayurveda  goes into great detail to describe the medicinal attributes of many herbs and their correct usage to compliment and hasten the healing process and to strengthen the body’s organs and systems.

In part 2, I will discuss the Ayurveda herbs controversy, their acceptance in the West. How does Ayurveda work? What should you expect from its treatment, what is it good for? Are there any risks?.

THE BRAIN HORMONE

Good morning, my dear reader. How are you? I think that I have overslept. You see, my relationship with Mrs. Sleep was not good in my younger years, but now, I love her, more than I ever did. The truth is that I have been using a natural sleep aid product. Natural sleep Melatonin with immediate melatonine release. Great product! Try it Now! my friend.

Melatonin was introduced to the US in 1992 as a “sleep hormone”. While some of us find melatonin helps restore restful sleep, scientists are finding far more consistent applications for melatonin in the area of brain protection.

New discoveries are validating melatonin’s ability to guard the brain from oxidative stress and the neurodegeneration that occurs as a result of aging and environmental factors. With this research, melatonin deserves the title of “brain hormone”. To be continued….

DON’T GET VICTIMIZED BY MEDICAL IGNORANCE!

My dear reader, when research discoveries are not delivered to patients, the inevitable result is less than optimal care. For those who suffer from a non-life threatening condition, this absence of applied knowledge means their agony may not abate. For people suffering lethal medical conditions, the result of their physicians not taking advantage of current treatment findings often is, I am afraid, premature death.

The rapid advances in the biomedical sciences are both frightening and encouraging. Sadly, the alarming fact is that people are dying because their doctors are not keeping up with the latest treatment breakthroughs. The reassuring aspect is that patients can educate themselves to better work with their physicians to mitigate or cure lethal diseases. When a patient and physician work together as an enlightened team, life saving miracles can occur as opposed to needless suffering and fatality.

Physicians learn about discoveries at scientific conferences, from medical journals, and on the internet. However, only a tiny fraction of these doctors translates this knowledge into enhanced treatments for their patients. In fact, physicians treating seriously ill patients often fail to use many established medical advances.

For instance, the scientific literature documents that, if a cancer or congestive heart disease patient is anemic, his or her chance of survival is greatly reduced. In their everyday practice, however, few physicians are aggressive in their evaluation and treatment of anemia, even though anemia correlates directly with increased mortality.

A conflict of interests has arisen in the context of modern-day medicine that prohibits translational medicine (translation of diverse scientific findings into therapeutic protocols that can be understand by readers, patients and physicians), in the name of cost-effectiveness for the HMO. However, what managed care in its immediate greed has failed to see is that using measures to prevent illness and diagnosis disease earlier will translate into savings of lives and of health care dollars. It even keeps their clients alive longer so that they can keep on paying insurance premiums. In these times of increasing numbers of patients constrained by managed care, major advances in health care could be realized if someone were to show the accountants and CEOs of HMOs how pro-active translational approaches save lives and money at the same time.

Cancer patients are often shocked to learn that most conventional oncologists are not utilizing novel information contained in their own journals. The failure of oncologists to practice translational medicine helps explain why more Americains are dying of cancer than ever before, despite major advances made in the research laboratory.

Several years back. The delay in recognizing the value of beta-blocker drugs was a shame!. This class of drugs was conclusively established to save the lives of recovering heart attack patients in 1981. Yet by 1996, beta-blockers were being prescribed to only 62.5% of eligible patients, 15 years after their efficacy was proven. While Europeans were benefiting from beta-blockers in 1965. The FDA did not approve beta-blockers for the treatment of hypertension and angina until 1978.

Who knew that Marijuana (Weed, Ganja, Buddha) had huge medical benefits….Some of us did. Most of us are just finding out including Dr. Gupta of CNN. The Authorities including the FDA are finally accepting this reality that should have been implemented long ago. 

I must say, that the doctors are not solely to blame. Pharmaceutical companies are pushing doctors to sell their drugs. Patients with 3, 4 or more prescriptions might wind up having different brands of drugs for the same treatment, then there is overmedicating, medications cancelling the other. Medications not being effective complaints and so on…all that, resulting  with doctors’s Translational medicine going down memory lane. Patients who fail to assume responsability for their health are also the cause of research findings not being optimally utilized to save lives.

We live in a world where scientific discoveries have become routine events. Regrettably, the enourmous volume of new findings has overwhelmed many practicing physicians. The media superficially reports on a few discoveries, but the majority of life saving breakthroughs remain buried in the millions of pages of scientific text.

Note: There is the Disease Prevention and Treatment book (5th edition, product #DPT05). A 1,400 pages of breakthrough information that bridges the gap between cutting-edge science and mainstream medicine…in one must have volume that you will find invaluable now and for years to come.

YOUR BODY’S BODYGUARD! (Part 2)

Now, let us discuss how your body’s bodyguard, the immune system works: To be continued….

Posted in Immune enhancement | Leave a comment

YOUR BODY’S BODYGUARD! (Part 1)

Is your body’s bodyguard, an armed guard ready to stop anything that dare approach your sacred body, or is it a collection of organs, special cells, and substances that help protect you from infections and diseases?. The immune system! yes! my dear reader, your body’s guard is your immune system.

Age, stress, and poor nutrition can snap our immune system of its effectiveness. The impact of aging on the immune syastem is profound. As people age, a number of critical immune system components including cellular response, antibody production, and response to caccines are reduced or slowed. At the same time, susceptibility to infection and cancer is increased. Some of this increased susceptibility to disease is linked to chronic inflammation, which is associated with many disorders of aging.

Age, however, that is a fact, is not the sole culpit in reduced immune function. There is no question that exercise, stress, and nutritional status play an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system.

Let us consider the following research findings: A) Dietary deficiencies and malabsorption alter metabolism and exacerbate chronic disorders. B) Malnutrition causes a decline in immune function and increases susceptibility to infection. Likewise, a vitamin or mineral deficiency can suppress immune system function. Correct choices, I must say, of supplements, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, probiotics, and botanicals have been shown to boost immunity and may also reduce the risk of disease or diseases in healthy individuals. C) Psychological health influences the immune system and the course of many diseases. Depression, stress and anxiety increase the production of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the blood which in turn can compromise, depress, or suppress the immune system. D) High levels of anxiety are associated with decreased immune function. E) Chronic stress can provoke long-term increases in pro-inflammatory chemicals. F) Chronic stress from persistent marital problems, burnout at work and lengthly unemployment can lead to immune alterations that persist for years. 

Please, note. I truly, believe that all aging people should take action to bloster their immune systems. This includes reducing negative psychological stress; following physicians approved, moderate, long-term exercise program; and following a diet as well as consuming nutrients that have been shown to enhance immune response and promote total health. Rev. jm Galas.

Nutrition, Immunity, and your Genes.

For your attention: Researchers  are just now beginning to understand how genes affect nutrition and overall immunity. It turns out that the overall risk of contracting many diseases is influenced by genetics. A new field of nutritional genomics explores the interaction of nutrition, genes, and environmental factors (including diet). This emerging of science evolved from the Human Genome Project (HGP), which mapped the human genome and identified many genes that cause disease.

The association between diet and chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity, and cancer is well know. Nutrients supplied by food are an important variable in gene expression. Deficiency of some essential nutrients can alter metabolism and the structure of DNA. An example (well-studied that is!) of the relationship between genetics and diet is type 2 diabetes. This condition is associated with a sedentary lifestyle, being overweight, and ethnicity. Although some individuals are genetically predisposed to this condition, many can control symptoms through exercise and a change in diet.

In the future, genetic testing might be able to help in the creation of nutritional programs tailored to each individual’s genetic make up; thus, may help people fight disease and stay healthy.

HOW TO PREVENT HEART DISEASES?

Our world is getting faster, as you know. We hardly find time to exercise and eat healthy. We tend to fill our bodies with what come easy and fast like junk foods, foods low in fiber, full in sugar, fat and saturated fats. Although, we live longer than our ancestors, most of us, spend our older years unhealhty, depending on medication to keep our blood flowing throughout our bodies. 

The fact is that, we can not completly explain the causes of heart disease (atherosclerosis), but we do know that there are several risk factors that have been indentified.

Some of these risk factors are: Obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic emotional stress, tobacco smoking, alcohol, drugs, eating disorders, sodium (salt), fat and saturated fats, stimulants, elevated homocysteine, family story of heart disease and sedentary life style.

Note: Heredity is a risk factor that you can not change, but awareness and communication of your family history can help you and your health practitioner recognize signs and symptoms of heart disease.

The majority of the factors that lead to heart disease work the same way, but releasing toxic substances that irritate the lining of the arteries. This leads to a build up of plaque in the arterial walls. The plaque can get really thick and then this causes a partial obstruction, which then slows down the flow of blood through the arteries. The blood flow to vital tissues and organs slows down which can result in a heart attack or stroke.

Note: Congenital heart defects present from birth, arrhythmia and diseases of the blood vessels all qualify  as forms of heart disease. The methods for preventing these heart issues may be different for each type of heart condition. Most congenital heart problem occur through, I must say, no fault of the mother, but certain things a pregnant woman might do can increase her chances of having a child with a heart defect. For instance, consumming alcohol and using drugs while pregnant causes damage to the developing fetus that may include the cardiovascular system.

Now! let us explore, how to prevent heart disease

What comes to mind, my dear reader?

1) Regular exercise!.  Yes!, but regular exercise that includes heavy breathing. Make time to exercise, 30 to 40 minutes of your time or if you can, join a gym. 

2) If you smoke tobacco or/and drink hard alcohol, quit! If you can not, seek help!. Your health and wellness are on the line!.

3) Good nutrition: Eat more fruits and vegetables, sea foods, preferably fish. Consume less sodium (salt), less sugar. Include fiber in your diet. Garlic (shown to decrease heart disease). Dark chocolate (the darker, the better). Drink fresh juices. Red wine, but in moderation. 

4) Take measures to lower your cholesterol and blood pressure levels. For further informations, view our health advisor.

5) Stress management: I strongly, recommend that you practise Meditation or Yoga to relieve daily stress. Share your feelings to others, good friends, family or your God.

6) Weight management: Do not overeat!. Fast every two weeks. Clean your body internally, quaterly or yearly. Exercise for weight control.

7) Vitamins and supplements: Take Omega-3 (fish oil), Coenzyme Q10Complete B-complex, Pure vitamin ECardio peak with Hawthorn and Arjuna (strengthening heart muscle, protect against arrhythmia, modest LDL reduction).

8) Schedule annual physicals: For heart health check up and to detect by tests, silent health disease and the potential for a heart attack in someone in apparent good health and without symptoms such as chest discomfort or breathlessness. Unfortunately, most doctors fail to detect a disease that requires decades to develop. People are misled, I must say, by the false reassurances provided by conventional testing. Very important! Three tests stand out as superior ways to uncover hidden heart disease or the potential for future catastrophe. 1) CT (computed tomography) heart scans. 2) Lipoprotein testing, and 3) The ankle-Brachial index.

You can prevent heart disease, my dear reader, by taking measure of lowering your cholesterol and blodd pressure levels: Do not smoke tobacco or/and drink hard alcohol. Good nutrition. Exercise. Vitamins and Supplements. Stress and Weight management. Annual physicals for general heart health check-up and to detect silent heart disease and the potential for a heart attack.

For your total health and wellness. Rev. jm Galas, B.Msc
