Subject: Why Should You Add Seaweed To Your Diet?





Adding seaweed to your diet can help protect your system from becoming vulnerable to several ailments, while also lessening the amount of symptoms from chronic conditions that you have already been diagnosed with. Seaweed is known to promote proper thyroid functioning, helping protect your body from being diagnosed with over or under-active thyroid disease. If you are living with diabetes, the consumption of seaweed can help reduce the effects of insulin resistance and inflammation that you may experience.

Key Takeaways:

  • In contrast with other generations about a decade ago, new technology gives the possibility for more information but that does not mean people are more aware of their surroundings.
  • Today, people have more knowledge about which food are healthy for the body or not. They can easily search for the information on the Internet.
  • Some foods have become very popular today because some food blogger or celebrity recommended it and people now add it to their daily diet.

"Research on seaweed shows its numerous benefits for the digestive system, thyroid glands, and the general health."

Subject: Why melatonin is a powerful anticancer indolamine





Traditionally, melatonin supplements have been taken to induce a full night's rest, as well as aiding individuals in easing into a deep slumber. Since melatonin is a natural angiogenesis inhibitor, it actually has the ability to reduce the significance of tumors that are located within the body. The process of inhibiting angiogenesis is an essential part of treating cancer patients because it helps target the cells with oxygen. This helps regulate cell migration as well as invasion.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Iranian study which was published looked at the molecular anti-angiogenesis pathways that melatonin uses and the mechanisms that were at play in different forms of cancer.
  • Melatonin is a hormone that the body produces at the pineal gland and from research it has been found that it possesses diverse biological actions, including antitumor.
  • Since the increase of angiogenesis is a definite sign that a tumor is progressing, when melatonin exerts its anticancer effect, it inhibits angiogenesis.

"A team of researchers from Iran suggests that melatonin has powerful anticancer properties."

Subject: Medical benefits of cannabis SUPPRESSED and banned throughout mostof the 20th century





Cannabis sativa, otherwise known as marijuana, has been used as a natural medicine for thousands of years, prior to the development of western civilization. However, with the introduction of synthetic pharmaceutical drugs, governments deemed marijuana as evil and dangerous. By the 1930s, the U.S., England, and Canada all outlawed marijuana. However, over the last twenty years, there has been an overwhelming amount of cannabis research out of Spain, Israel, and Brazil, uncovering the human body’s endocannabinoid system and identifying marijuana as the new powerhouse drug of this century.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cannabis sativa, one of the most misunderstood botanicals in modern times, has been used for time immemorial as a natural medicine source.
  • Cannabis was being used freely by people, can be obtained at pharmacies and one can grow his own until reefer madness starting manifesting and governments banned it.
  • In the war that the pharmaceutical industry has waged against natural medicine, cannabis was the first casualty, so states Dr. Jeffrey Dach on the history of cannabis.

"By making cannabis “illegal,” governments of the West paved the way for Big Pharma to take over and declare its poisons as the only safe and effective medicine out there – “medicine” that, in some cases, was derived and synthesized from the very same cannabis plant that, under Schedule I designation, was deemed to have no legitimate medical use."

Subject: Hyperthyroidism vs. Hypothyroidism: How to Tell the Difference





The thyroid, a small gland at the base of the neck, receives TSH from the pituitary gland. This relationship, whether too active or not active enough, causes many adverse side effects. Too much TSH (hyperthyroidism) can cause: weight loss, cardiovascular irregularities, nervousness, and etc. Too little TSH (hypothyroidism) causes symptoms like: depression, impaired memory, hoarseness, fatigue, weight gain, etc. Currently, no cure exists for either of these conditions, other than individual specific diets targeted at raising or lower TSH levels. As always, one should consult a doctor and get proper blood work done before making any major life changes.

Key Takeaways:

  • The American Thyroid Association asserts that more than 12% of U.S. citizens will experience a thyroid problem.
  • Moreover, an approximately 20 million individuals are currently undergoing thyroid issues, with less than half of those affected even aware that their concerns are thyroid-related.
  • The hallmark of hyperthyroidism is the production of too much thyroid hormone, which an show itself symptom-wise through unplanned weight loss and a significantly elevated pulse.

"Thyroid problems can affect anyone of any age from infancy to the latest years of life."

Subject: Probiotics reduce the need for antibiotics, new review concludes





Probiotics help boost or maintain good gut flora and bacteria. A collaboration of 12 studies around the world have found that infants and small kids may benefit more from probiotics than first thought, when treatment for certain illnesses has been traditionally antibiotics. Antibiotics kill off the good and bad bacteria in ones system, and because of their limited diet, ( foods they can or will eat) replenishing that vital flora can be difficult, resulting in prolongation of condition or a greater risk of a secondary infection due to lowered immune response.

Key Takeaways:

  • An exhaustive amount of data about probiotics was reviewed by researchers working in tandem from the U.S., England and the Netherlands.
  • The results culled from the research was published in the European Journal of Public Health.
  • An important takeaway from the research was the discovery that minor children and babies were less likely to have her put on antibiotics if the were already on a probiotics regimen.

"However, data from a review has determined that probiotics can also be used to reduce the need for antibiotics among infants and children."

High impact and strenuous training or lifestyle takes its toll on the body. One area that has a highly impacted rate of declined performance is that of the immune system. Lower immune system function can happen not only with the physical stress of training , work outs or lifestyle, but mental stress as well. Chorella is a micro marine algae that has several minerals and vitamins that help to repair the system as well as act as a detoxification vehicle.

Key Takeaways:

  • According to a study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, chlorella can speed up recovery from intense training and exercise, thereby stabilizing the immune system.
  • 26 people with average ages of 29 were evaluated for the study. They were given chlorella for four weeks and at the end asked to do intensive exercises.
  • The study showed that the participants who took chlorella had increased levels of salivary sIgA while those in the placebo group who didn’t take it showed no significant changes.

"Researchers in England aimed to evaluate the effects of chlorella supplementation on salivary sIgA in response to a two-day intensive training exercise."

The health benefits of eating pecans

Pecans originate from the Midwestern part of the US, and their health benefits are shown to be quite substantial. Pecans are high in vitamin E, which causes them to have large amounts of antioxidants properties. They can also help clean and regulate oxidation processes in order to help contribute to the prevention of various cancers. Studies have indicated that consumption of pecans may also have the ability to help those with liver damage, but it has not been proven in human subjects as of right now.

Key Takeaways:

  • Pecans are rich in nutrients that can help people avoid cardiovascular disease.
  • The phenolic acids in pecans are key in preventing cell mutations, which in turn can prevent cancer from developing.
  • Unfortunately, many pecan recipes require a lot of sugar and corn syrup, but there are recipes available that use natural ingredients.

"Referred to as Carya illinoinensis in scientific literature, pecans are a member of the Juglandaceae family, which makes it a relative of the hickory and the walnut. Pecans are also considered native to North America; their existence has predated even the earliest human settlements."

Overcoming adrenal fatigue naturally

Overcoming adrenal fatigue naturally

The human body has a well-developed system it uses to aid us when we experience stress. Firstly, the brain identifies the threat. Then the body releases hormones designed to do two things, rush blood to the muscles and heart to assist in fighting off the aggressive agent and dampening body processes that are not needed in the attack, such as digestive ones.

Were one fighting of a saber-tooth tiger, this would be of benefit. Today's stresses are far more nuanced, insidious and long-lasting. And when constant stress overworks the adrenals, which are the rabble-rousers in charge of turning off immunity and digestion until the tiger has turned tail, well then they get tired. This condition is called, aptly, adrenal fatigue. It can last for a short while, or a long time. It induces fatigue and it can lead to "brain fog." Other symptoms can include disturbances in mood, or sleep, food cravings and muscle and bone loss. To recuperate, it's necessary to convince the body the tiger has gone. Eat healthy, sleep healthy. Take vitamins and nourish yourself physically and psychically.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some symptoms of adrenal fatigue include brain fog and insulin resistance. And busy new parents, college students and caregivers are most at risk of getting it.
  • The adrenal gland functions rhythmically. During the day it releases cortisol that wakes us up and at the evening it reduces it to make us go to bed.
  • Adrenal fatigue stresses the adrenaline such that when stress occurs, it takes longer for the individual to recover.

"One of the most important parts of restoring adrenal function is listening to your body and minding your stress levels."

Subject: Top 7 Foods That Boost Serotonin





Serotonin helps regulate body temperature, mood, sleeping patterns and aids in digestion, among other benefits. It's common for those that have low levels of serotonin to experience depression and many antidepressant medications raise serotonin levels to combat depression. If you want to raise your serotonin levels naturally(or tryptophan a serotonin precursor), without the side effects involved with prescription medications, you may want to try adding these foods to your diet. They include frits, vegetable, eggs, meats and even chocolate

Key Takeaways:

  • Serotonin, also known as 5-HT, is a neurotransmitter released by the pineal gland of the brain.
  • Foods that boost serotonin include: kiwi, dark chocolate, seeds, nuts and vitamin D-rich foods
  • Some foods contain tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin, but these are only effective when consumed with a high-carb, low-protein diet

"Serotonin plays an important role in controlling our circadian rhythms - our body’s internal clock."

Subject: Study: Single Dose Of CBD Shown To Reduce Blood Pressure





A recent study conducted at the University of Nottingham in England has shown that a single dose of Cannabidiol can effectively lower blood pressure for individuals that are suffering from high blood pressure. This is great news, considering Cannabidiol is a non-addictive, natural medication. It is also an amazing breakthrough because this means that it can treat many other cardiovascular disorders, not just hypertension. Cannabidiol is believed to be a neuroprotectant that can help prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke, in addition to lowering an elevated heart rate.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD may help prevent cardiovascular disease, specifically by lowering systolic blood pressure.
  • Patients who received one oral dose had an average of 5-7 mmHg drop in systolic blood pressure.
  • CBD may help reduce cardiovascular risk in other ways- like being a vasodilator and protecting neurons that regulate heartbeat.

"Nearly 75 million adults in the United States suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure. That means around 32 percent of the population is at an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. It’s very promising that CBD has the possibility of reducing and preventing certain cardiovascular disorders."

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland is performing at below the usual capacity due to a deficiency in the amount of thyroid hormone being produced by the body. When the thyroid is underactive, it leads to the underperformance of other important bodily processes. The thyroid gland needs sufficient levels of iodine in order to function properly. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, pectin, and Vitamin D all help to ensure the successful operation of the thyroid as well.

Subject: Ask Well: Should We Be Buying Iodized Salt?





The question has been raised and it asks if we should be buying iodized salt. There have been tests done that have come to the conclusion that were are sufficient in the United States, when it comes to our iodine consumption. Most people from America get enough iodine, even if they do not use any iodized salt in their meals. They have a very small risk for having an iodine deficiency, which can lead to them getting goiters.

Key Takeaways:

  • While statistics indicate that most US citizens are iron sufficient, some pregnant women are at risk and could need supplementation.
  • Though iodine is used in some cow feeds and as a wash for cow udders, the concentration is considered mild and harmless.
  • An unlikely source of iodine, dairy, exists, because iodine is present in soil, which yields grass, in turn consumed by cows and therefore present in milk.

There are many remedies for dry eyes out there. This gives you some more ideas. Dry eyes can be very unpleasant. It can be anything from irritating to painful. It happens when the body doesn't make enough tears for themselves. Tears are needed to lubricate the eye's sensitive membranes and without them irritation occurs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Our eyes have a few sources of moisture. One is the lacrimal gland in the upper outer quadrant of the eye. That’s the gland that produces buckets of tears if you cry or something gets in your eye.
  • a network of glands embedded in the conjunctiva (the white surface of the eye and the undersurface of the eyelids) that produces water and mucus
  • The cocktail of water, mucus, and oil from these last two sources make up the tear film on the eye surface. We need it to see properly. “Each time you blink, you reapply a new wet surface,” explains Dr. Gardiner.

"Taking care of dry eyes not only relieves discomfort but can help you avoid infection or even scarred corneas."

Key Takeaways:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids have myriad health benefits, and high quality supplements may be beneficial
  • Asthma patients who took omega-3 supplements experienced a reduction in the antibodies that cause asthma, but the supplements were not as effective in those on corticosteroids
  • Steroids may interfere with omega-3 fatty acids' effects on asthma symptoms, and over time may reduce the body's ability to combat asthma on its own

"Steroids are usually a very effective treatment for asthma."

You may have never heard of the mineral Selenium, but did you know it does wonders for our body? Selenium can be used for making electronic devices and some glass products but a small amount of this mineral can help keep our bodies healthy. Some people may have deficiency to the mineral which can cause many problems. You can find out more about selenium and how is works for us in this article

Key Takeaways:

  • Vitamins and minerals are very essential for a healthy body. One such mineral that benefits the human body is selenium. Although this mineral is mostly used in electronics and glass making, a small amount of it is required by the human body as well. Selenium deficiency can lead to many possible health hazards.
  • Studies have revealed that selenium consists of antioxidant properties that improve the health of the cells in the human body. It prevents cell damage, provides defense against various infections, and contributes to the proper functioning of the thyroid gland by regulating the thyroid hormone—thyroxine (T4).
  • The common source of selenium is the soil; therefore, the amount of selenium received through plant-based produce depends on the amount of selenium present in the soil. If the soil is found to be without selenium or in traces, farmers can add selenium fertilizers to the soil to meet the required quantity. Food sources of selenium are red meat, fish, seafood, and Brazil nuts.

"It is important to include selenium in an appropriate amount in the diet."

Hashimoto’s disease is a hypothyroid disorder that is caused by an immune attack on your thyroid. This leads to a generally fatigued and weak feeling that persists longer than expected. It can also affect the health of your hair, your weight, and how you respond to cold environments. So, if you have been feeling rundown for a while and just generally down in the dumps with any of the other above symptoms, it may be time to talk to your doctor to get tested.

Key Takeaways:

  • A tipping point occurs when thyroid gland tissue can no longer produce thyroid hormones.
  • As your thyroid gland weakens, symptoms gradually appear. At first, you may feel tired without reason. You might even wake up tired.
  • If you complain to your doctor about fatigue – the main symptom of hypothyroidism – you will likely get clinical screening tests for anemia and hypothyroidism.

"Hashimoto’s is the most common autoimmune thyroid disorder. For a variety of reasons, your immune system sets out to attack your thyroid gland. Over time, the thyroid gland is slowly destroyed"

A new mechanism has been discovered that connects phosphatidyl choline (also called lecithin), a common dietary fat, along with intestinal microflora, to an increased risk of heart disease. The study shows that the heart risk of people with a diet high in the lipid depends on how the micro-organisms that live in their digestive tracts metabolize it. When lecithin and choline were fed to mice, the substances were converted to a heart disease-forming product by the intestinal microbes. In humans, higher blood levels of choline and the heart disease forming microorganism products are strongly associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk.

Always Tired? Burnout and Adrenal Fatigue Solutions

Subject: Always Tired? Burnout and Adrenal Fatigue Solutions

Do you often feel run down and fatigued during the day? So tired you could sleep? Do you crave and use salty and sweet foods as well as caffeine to get you through the day?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions it is likely that you may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue or "Burnout." It's a very common problem which often goes unnoticed. It affects significantly more women than men. The number of people suffering has rocketed since the recession - money worries and job worries causing major stress.


What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal Fatigue is a term used to describe when the adrenal glands are exhausted. Adrenal fatigue is very commonly associated with stress levels. The adrenal glands release Cortisol in response to all stress, cortisol is your natural anti-inflammatory and reduces stress and inflammation levels when needed.

Your adrenal glands are located just above the kidneys and are the size of walnuts. They have a very important function within the body, they secrete over 50 different hormones which your body needs to survive. As well as cortisol some of the other hormones that the adrenal glands secrete include testosterone, estrogen, epinephrine, and progesterone.

People can live with this all their life and think it is just normal. This fatigue cannot simply be relieved by a good night's sleep. An estimated 80% of people at some point experience some form of adrenal fatigue and the physical symptoms associated with stress.

It is unlikely that a doctor will immediately diagnose you with adrenal fatigue, in my research I read about a female sufferer of adrenal fatigue who saw 27 different doctors before having her problem identified as adrenal fatigue! This is an extreme case.


Symptoms and negatives effects of adrenal fatigue

Adrenal fatigue can really wreck the life you live, in extreme cases, it can be so bad that you are only able to stay awake and move around for a couple of hours a day. Changes are made in your carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance is affected as well as your heart, cardiovascular system and sex drive as a result of adrenal fatigue.

The main symptoms of adrenal fatigue are:

  • You feel unusually tired a lot of the time 
  • You feel run down and have no energy
  • You struggle to wake in the mornings despite what time you went to bed the night before 
  • You struggle for energy in the afternoon 
  • It is only really about 10am when you wake up properly despite being up for several hours 
  • 'Wake up' again after around 6pm 
  • Illness and stress hit you hard and you struggle to get rid of it 
  • You have cravings for sweets, salty snacks and caffeine 
  • Increased PMS or menopausal symptoms 
  • Slight depression 
  • You feel weak a lot of the time, tired and weak at the top of stairs 
  • Low sex drive 
  • Increased allergies 
  • Dizziness and feeling light-headed after standing up

Bored with trips to the doctor or naturopath and the costs involved as you attempt to restore the functionality of your adrenal glands? If yes, then embrace an adrenal-supportive diet plan. Apart from reducing the costs you incur to treat adrenal fatigue; you will enjoy several other benefits that come with eating right. Basically you will have to take nutritious whole foods, eat at the right time, and avoid foods that you have intolerances to. Apart from the above, you will have to reduce stressing your mind and body, eliminate toxins and embrace positive thinking at all times. The details below will give you a proper guide towards your recovery.


The Adrenal Fatigue Diet

Since the problem is already here, you have to start by removing toxins and hard-to-digest foods from your diet (embrace a Paleo or Primal diet). This means you have to eliminate legumes, grains, vegetable oils, caffeine, microwaved and processed foods, and refined sugar.

After that, take foods that help replenish the energy of your adrenal glands. They include avocado, olives, Cruciferous vegetables, coconut, Fatty fish, turkey and chicken, seeds (like flax, chia and pumpkin), seaweed and kelp, Himalayan or Celtic sea salt, nuts (like almonds and walnuts), and food fats. These foods have low sugar levels, they are nutrient-dense, and contain healthy fiber and fat.


Taking the Required Adrenal Fatigue Recovery Supplements

Remember that if these supplements are taken in their whole-food form, the symptoms of your adrenal insufficiency could greatly be improved. The supplements to take include Holy basil, Vitamin B5, fish oil (DHA/EPA), Ashwagandha, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin B12. Where your adrenal fatigue is severe, get an experienced doctor to prescribe the correct levels of Pregnenolone, DHEA, Progesterone, B6, Licorice Extract, and L-tyrosine

Once you follow the above and embrace good lifestyle changes to promote your recovery you will now have a solution to the full recovery of your adrenal glands. Good lifestyle in this case, means you sleep regularly or about 8-10 hours a night, exercise, rest whenever you feel tired, reduce relational and work stress, laugh and have time to relax. Also, always ensure that you are eating regularly. You can now live a happy and fulfilling life with your adrenal glands working perfectly.

How DHEA levels diminishes with age

As we age, dhea levels biologically diminish. According to research by experts, in our young years, plenty of dhea is secreted since it is vital for brain development and growth. This gradually continues until the age of 25 years after which the levels start to decline. The impact of the diminishing levels of dhea are mostly felt when we hit 40 years and above. This is manifested in terms of difficulties in remembering information, low levels of libido particularly in women, dry skin and increased anxiety.

DHEA is a hormone that is essential to human beings as it aids in counteracting the aging process, making us feel good and above all improving our overall health. Taking dhea supplements for those aged 40 years and above will help keep at bay problems associated with low levels of DHEA.

Subject: What Is Adrenal Burnout?

Your adrenal glands are responsible for producing adrenaline and cortisol. These help you to manage all kinds of stressful situations as they help you to survive any difficult condition.

Over time your adrenal glands will stop working as well as they should. This will result in adrenal burnout, a condition where your glands keep you from feeling energetic and healthy.

Adrenal burnout occurs in that you will feel worn out rather quickly. You might struggle to get up in the morning regardless of how much sleep you get.

You may also develop naturally high cortisol and adrenaline levels. This causes your body to become stressed out all the time. It will be hard for you to feel relaxed in this case, thus depleting your energy levels. Over time, the levels of those compounds in your body will decline due to them wearing out and your glands being unable to produce new forms. This may cause you to use more stimulants like caffeine than what your body really needs.

After a while, your immune system will start to weaken. This is due to your body not getting cortisol over time. Cortisol is an anti-inflammatory agent that should protect your body but you may have little to no cortisol to help. Also, an excess amount of cortisol at the start of adrenal burnout will keep your immune system working too hard to the point where it starts to become fatigued and fails to work properly.

You will need to work hard to keep adrenal burnout from being a real threat. You will have to create a consistent sleep schedule while creating a comfortable space to sleep in. meditation and deep breathing exercises may help as well. Vitamin C can also help to produce cortisol while vitamins B5 and B6 will help create new hormones.

Adrenal burnout can be a real threat to your life. Be sure to watch for how you control your life if you start to feel excess fatigue and stress.

Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

Subject: Are You Gaining Weight For No Reason? Check Your Thyroid

The human body is an extremely complex system of checks and balances that's held in a very delicate state of equilibrium. It's hard to understand at times but with the patience of science, we can usually get to the bottom of whichever mysteries our bodies will present us with.

One of the mysteries that some people might find themselves faced with at some point in their lives is that of gaining weight for no reason. Diets and exercise will seem not to work. A possible culprit might be found in a small organ known as the thyroid gland. Let’s have a closer look at it and how it may be affecting your metabolism and weight.


How the Thyroid gland Works

The thyroid is the largest gland in your endocrine system of glands and is located right in the middle of your neck just below the Adam’s apple in men. Endocrine glands refer to glands that secrete hormones in the human body. The thyroid gland produces the hormones Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine, which are referred to as the thyroid hormones. These hormones play a significant role in your energy regulation and metabolism functions by prompting almost every cell in your body to increase its activity. This is essentially what your metabolic rate is. There are three basic categories of problems that can occur in your thyroid gland, as follow:

  • Hypothyroidism or Underactivity – too little thyroid hormones produced
  • Hyperthyroidism or Overactivity – too much thyroid hormones produced
  • Growths – include benign cysts and nodules as well as cancers of the thyroid gland

The Thyroid gland and Weight Gain

When too little thyroid hormone is being produced in a patient, their metabolic rate will slow down, meaning that the body’s cell will not be burning up calories at their optimum rate. This will lead to these unspent calories being deposited throughout the body in the form of fat. The person affected might find themselves suddenly gaining weight without any apparent changes in their lifestyle or eating habits. This is also why dieting and exercise may not have the desired effect on the patient.

The symptoms of an underactive thyroid can be very vague because the hormone acts throughout the body but should you find yourself experiencing some of these, consider testing specifically for hypothyroidism:

  • General weakness
  • Cold intolerance
  • Heightened cholesterol levels
  • Fatigue
  • Sleepiness
  • Constipation
  • Mood swings
  • Forgetfulness
  • Heavy menses
  • Coarse, dry hair and skin
  • Weight gain
  • Changes in blood pressure
  • Depression and/or irritability
  • Muscle cramps and aches
  • Swelling in legs (edema)
  • Blurred vision
  • Hoarse voice and sore throat
  • Hair loss (on head and/or body)

Subject: Our Liver Breaks Down Hormones

The liver is the second largest and most important organ in the human body. Its main function in the body is detoxification of toxic wastes in the blood stream. The endocrine glands are responsible in the production of hormones , which are key to normal functioning of the liver. The liver breaks down hormones like insulin, adrenalin, testosterone and estrogen on a 24/7 basis.  If the liver did not break down hormones, these hormones would run unchecked, for example, insulin, if left in the blood would cause sugar levels to drop to dangerously low levels. The liver helps prevent that and other hormones from causing damage to the body.

The liver general plays a major regulatory role in breaking down the excess hormones after they have completed their intended functions in the body.

It is important to keep the liver functioning properly, this means do not drink in excess,  limit over the counter drugs and prescription drugs, continued use can cause liver damage.  Cholesterol medications can hammer the liver, try to clean up diet and take natural remedies to lower cholesterol and protect the liver.  Consider taking milk thistle as a liver protector.  For years, scientist have been studying milk thistle, and it is proven to be a safe and effective herbal remedy that protects the liver.

Does Melatonin Decline As We Age?
TopPreviousNext

Author: Darrell Miller
Subject: Does Melatonin Decline As We Age?

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal glands.  The circadian production of melatonin is tied to the day/night cycle. Light through the retina signals the pineal glands to suppress its production. Lack of light stimulation (at night) results to increased production of melatonin. The increased hormone production at night is associated with a good night’s sleep. According to a study, melatonin significantly reduces sleep latency and increases sleep efficiency. It has thus been used to treat insomnia.

Sleep

Aging and Insomnia

Insomnia is commonplace among the elderly. As we age, sleep problems which include difficulty in falling asleep and maintaining the sleep are so rampant. This is so because melatonin production declines with age. With age comes the disruption of the circadian rhythms associated with the production of melatonin. To this end, melatonin supplements come handy to the elderly in maintaining a good night’s sleep.


Aging and Alzheimer's Disease

There is more to this hormone than a good night’s sleep and normal aging. There are evidences that melatonin suppresses Alzheimer’s disease. AD is the leading cause of dementia among individuals older than 65 years. Lack of sleep is a common symptom among AD patients and feels bad but sundowning (worsening of symptoms during evening hours) is worse. According to Netherlands Institute of Brain Research, the declining production of melatonin among the elderly not only affects the circadian rhythms but also enhances the development of Alzheimer.


Melatonin as an Antioxidant

Melatonin production starts to decline at age 60. This is the onset of diseases like AD which leads to increased production of free radicals in the brain. According to a review paper written in 2000, there is a lot of pathological changes among AD patients’ autopsied brains as a result of free radical activity. Melatonin carries antioxidant properties which fight the free radicals and protect the brain neurons.


Melatonin Supplements

Melatonin is a powerful hormone. Its function in sustaining optimal human health is crucial. New discoveries are being made on this versatile hormone. The fact that its production starts to decline at 60 only means that you need to use supplements and not fret over the onset of AD or insomnia. It is clear that besides being harmless and natural in treating insomnia, Melatonin is the most effective way of averting deleterious aging effects.

Can I Use Tea Tree Oil As A Deodorant?

Subject: Can I Use Tea Tree Oil As A Deodorant?

Most people use deodorant to control their body odor. But what they don’t know is the several hazards it causes. People usually apply these deo sprays under their armpits and over their body to control sweat and body odor. But these causes several health issues that should never be ignored.

Deodorant


Hazardous ingredients in deodorants

Some of the common substances used in deodorants include Parabens, aluminum, Triclosan, etc. Aluminum causes several health issues such as kidney problems, seizures, breast cancer, bone formation disorder, etc. Alzheimer and Down syndrome are also results of aluminum which people using these chemical deodorants suffer from. Apart from this, most deo sprays available in the market use parabens. These Parabens often mimic estrogen in the body, thereby disturbing the hormonal balance. It can cause hormonal cancer, early onset of puberty and more. If that’s not all, these deodorants also cause birth defects in unborn children. Along with this, the Triclosan included in body sprays also cause cancer, several allergies and fever.


Will these cause health problems?

There are numerous studies that show how deodorants and antiperspirants cause health issues. These can either be in the form of allergies to serious health hazards such as cancer. The chemicals used in these are extremely harmful for the body since it blocks the sweat glands.


Using tea tree oil as an alternative

The best thing is to use natural deodorants such as tea tree oil. It has several antiseptic properties that work well to control body odor. But the best thing about this essential oil, it is extremely safe to use and doesn't have any side effects. You can use it on your skin without worrying about the side effects.

Since tea tree oil can cause minor skin irritation in some people, it is always a good idea to use diluted oil under the arm pits. It works extremely well to mask odor and stays longer on your body, unlike deodorants. It also removes body odor once and for all, with regular use.

Subject: Should I Be Taking DHEA?

Formally known as the 5-Dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA is actually a steroid hormone secreted by the human brain, gonads as well as the adrenal glands, the glands that sit just on top of any person's kidneys.  Besides, being secreted by the gonads and also the human brain, DHEA is also beneficial in the formation of crucial reproductive hormones, like testosterone along with estrogen.


Should I Be Taking DHEA?

DHEA was found in the mid 1930's yet really grew up in the 1950's when it had been found that maturing patients experienced decreased levels in their circulatory system. It had been thought before that DHEA supplement projects may help battle the maturing process.  There's a reasonable bit of level headed discussion on the point in the matter of regardless of whether DHEA is helpful. One point is sure on the other hand, DHEA is a denied substance in for all intents and purposes of all games associations. Associations from baseball to the Olympics have established that DHEA is unworthy for the members.

Fundamentally, DHEA supplements are thought to effectively lessen weight. They typically measure in putting away fats in the body and keep those extra calories away.  As a general rule, majority of "work out" supplements comprise of DHEA in their components. Apart from this, DHEA also advances the glucose to parts where it is required, thus bringing about a fitter and healthier body.

DHEA supplement is truly a sort of steroidal hormone, it's got a huge part in the body's safety.  Boosting the invulnerable framework is another prize that you can get from DHEA dietary supplements as these are known not the human body's capacity to shape significantly more antibodies that may battle off disease and tumor bringing about cells

The huge expansion of optional medications cannot be compared to the extraordinary properties of DHEA.  While it is genuinely made in the whole body.  The maturing process is inevitable to the human body, however, DHEA slows down the aging process.  This also helps in conditions in the heart, kidneys, and pancreas.

Given that DHEA is a steroidal hormone, it plays an important role in the body's susceptibility to antibodies.  This improves the body's energy to fight contamination and malignancy in cells.  Likewise, it has been watched how nutritional supplements containing a DHEA fixing could incredibly help people who may have high dangers of getting osteoporosis.  This truly is as a consequence of straightforward reality that DHEA supplement could support the calcium levels inside of the bones.

Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

Subject: Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

The thyroid is that butterfly-shaped gland found in front of the neck area, only a little lower than the Adam's apple. It's the organ responsible for your body's metabolism, the process related to how you burn up calories. The thyroid gland makes use of iodine to produce thyroid hormone. That's the chemical substance released into the bloodstream to perform the metabolic functions of the thyroid. With inadequate thyroid hormones, your body produces less energy, slowing down metabolism. Without iodine, the thyroid is unable to produce thyroid hormones. 

Hypothyroidism

Sometimes, the thyroid slows down, causing a common disease, we all know as hypothyroidism.  It's simply the case when an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones is manufactured by the thyroid gland.  It is usually diagnosed through blood tests that check hormone levels.

Thyroid gland

Signs of Hypothyroidism

If you have a slow thyroid or underactive thyroid disease (another name of Hypothyroidism), you may observe one of the following signs.  However, know that these symptoms may mimic other health problems which makes it more difficult to diagnose.

  • Irregular menstrual period
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety; depression
  • Having dry skin, dry hair and hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Being sensitive to cold temperature
  • Slow heart rate
  • Having a swollen thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Having weight problems (either quickly gain weight or having difficulty in losing weight)
  • Suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (pain, tingling and numb sensations in the hand)

How to Avoid Hypothyroidism

One of the causes of the thyroid to slow down is having too little iodine in your diet. Remember, iodine is the required component to produce thyroid hormones.  And our body doesn't have iodine.  Thus, it should come from an external source, that is, through the foods we eat.  You need to boost up iodine in your diet. Use only iodized salt when seasoning food.  As much as possible, also eat shellfish, dairy products, eggs, saltwater fishes, seaweeds and other saltwater edible food.

Thyroid Health and Selenium

Subject: Thyroid Health and Selenium

Selenium is nature’s best secret.  It is a nutrient that when used in the correct amounts in your food, can make huge and exciting changes. However, the body only needs small amounts of this mineral, but it has huge benefits on one’s health.  It protects us against many health problems that are associated with the aging process such as osteoarthritis and cancer. A certain amount of this mineral is required in order to protect the body from deadly viruses and also to aid in healthy thyroid functioning.

Selenium deficiency frequently goes untreated simply because it does not show any noticeable symptoms. If the levels of selenium are low, the thyroid will have to work extra hard to manufacture its hormones and the body will have a tough job converting those hormones to a form the cells can use. This is because selenium is a chief ingredient of the molecules necessary for the body to be able to create and use seleno-proteins (thyroid hormones).

The initial stages of low selenium levels will reduce the optimal production of the thyroid hormone in the glands. If this continues the thyroid gland becomes inflamed. Eventually, this is what leads to thyroid autoimmune problems

Problems that come with low selenium levels can be more serious when the levels of mineral, iodine, is low.  Iodine is well known for its key role in thyroid health.  Selenium is also important in aiding your body to recycle iodine. Low selenium levels coupled with low iodine levels can lead to thyroid imbalance

An enlarged thyroid is known as goiter. This is one of the serious forms of thyroid imbalance. Most individuals diagnosed with goiter usually have low iodine levels, however research has also shown that the patient also have low levels of selenium. Therefore, it is very important to treat both deficits so as to re-establish thyroid stability

Doctors readily admit that there is no any specified dose of selenium required for better functioning of the thyroid. The one thing they agree on is that optimizing selenium intake aids in general health.
