blood cellsIf “health is wealth,” then having good blood circulation is one of the most valuable ways to support a long, healthy, vigorous life, and avoid unplanned visits to the doctor or hospital.

The Benefits of Ionized Water

In the quest for improved and healthy hydration, the focus in recent years strongly points to the benefits of alkaline water. As it turns out, alkalinity assists your body in developing a homeostatic or stable environment. This means that your body works at optimal performance, is able to ward off illness and is best prepared to heed off the bombardment of daily environmental threats. One of the ways that this  steady equilibrium is established in the human body is via a perfected alkaline/acid balance. Most reports indicate that this should be in the range of 80/20 for  maximum physical performance.

The Benefits of Alkaline Water

benefits of alkaline waterIn recent years alkaline water has been one of the most popular trends among health-conscious individuals and within natural health communities. The reasons are compelling and scientifically valid as alkalinity plays a critical role in establishing homeostatic balance. Homeostasis is the state of overall internal equilibrium characterized by an 80/20 alkaline-acid ratio. The blood’s pH must fall within the very close range of 7.35 to 7.45. Serious health crises inevitably ensue when blood pH drops below 7.35. The pH of the human saliva and urine on the other hand should ideally be 7.2 or higher. By using pH test strips on either urine or saliva you can evaluate your body’s pH level as either acidic (<7) or alkaline (<7). The lower your pH, the more unhealthy and disease-prone you become.

Beyond Weight Loss: The Positive Effects of Far Infrared Rays on Metabolism

positive effects of far infrared rays on metabolismThe term “metabolism” is commonly associated with weight loss, with how fast and efficiently the body can burn calories in order to shed unhealthy pounds. In reality, your metabolism is a far more complex process. Metabolism is comprised of thousands of biochemical reactions that are vital for the health and survival of the human organism. It involves either the breakdown of matter to derive energy or the utilization of energy to create new matter (i.e. hair, skin, nails, organ tissue, cells, etc).

Is it time for a “stress intervention”?

stress awareness monthApril is Stress Management Awareness Month, which means it’s the perfect time to take a moment to assess the effects that stress may be having on your life.

Many of us continue to underestimate these effects, and we refuse to make the connection between our levels of stress and the work, relationship and health issues that we just can’t seem to resolve.

Essentially, we are in complete denial.

Yet we are staring in the face of an epidemic. A full 80 percent of us feel stress on the job, for instance, and this has a direct effect on our health: 75-90 percent of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress related problems!

Is there a link between autism and pollution?

Autism and PollutionApril is National Autism Awareness Month, and despite an increasing number of children being diagnosed with this mysterious and often devastating disease, medical science is still unable to pinpoint its root causes.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of reported cases of autism increased by 57 percent in just four years (from 2002 to 2006). Today, one in every 110 children is diagnosed with the disorder.

Most scientists agree that genes are one of the risk factors for autism, and there is also some evidence that certain prescription drugs, taken during pregnancy, could also increase risk for the unborn baby.

However, new autism research suggests that environmental toxicity could also be a cause.
