Healthy Alternatives

January 24, 2010

Are YOU looking for the Healthy Alternatives to YOUR health issues? I try to help with some of the methods you can use to be a more healthy person. After all the most important asset you have is good health. I come across people from all backgrounds who say they want to be more healthy but when I give them the information as to what they need to do, they can’t or won’t afford it!

Why not try to be more healthy? It’s not necessarily cheaper than the alternative but it is much less painful and IT WON’T KILL YOU!
Seems that most people want to be healthy but only when they have deteriorated into a poor state of health and are looking for a magic pill to cure them!  Well, I’m afraid if you are one of these poor unfortunates who have ridiculed us healthy lifestyle followers, and yes you do do it, remember ‘rabbit food etc.’ then your journey to our wonderful state of well being isn’t fixed by taking a few pills for a week or two and that’s it! No Sorry the bad news is that you might have to do this for some time, how long did it take to get ill? In fact being healthy becomes a habit. Yes, good habits can be aquired too.

Do you have one or more of the seven deadly diseases?
They tend to be the scourge of the unhealthy eater.

Heart disease, kills more than a million people a year! Do you have it? It is preventable and in many cases can be reversed.

Cancer, the most feared and most expensive of all diseases kills about 1,500 people a DAY in north America alone! If you live in the UK you will tell me treatment on the NHS is FREE! Yes, the actual pills and consultations may be but what about all the traveling you have to undertake to get it and the time you have to give up? Is that also FREE? What could you do with that time, where could you go that might be more interesting than a hospital? Who tells your children and grandchildren that you have cancer?
Dr. Arthur Furst, the developer of oral chemotherapy said, “If the disease doesn’t kill you then the cure will!”  So the prognosis isn’t good either way.

Stroke kills more men than prostate cancer, and more women than breast cancer, 730,000 strokes occur in the USA every year of those victims 150,000 WILL DIE. Many of the rest may wish they had as stroke is responsible for most disabilities, including paralysis, speech loss, impaired vision and memory loss.

The incidence of diabetes has risen by more than 600% in a generation. It kills 300,000 people every year.

Thirty-million have Arthritis. Yet, there are a few simple inexpensive steps that YOU can take to lower your chances of getting it.

Twenty-five million of us have Osteoporosis, or brittle bone disease. About 80% of which are women over 50, after 35 you loose bone mass at the rate of 1% a year.

Alzheimer’s Disease, a serious killer that makes you forget who your loved ones are, and in extreme cases who YOU are!

Sad really as all these diseases are largely preventable through proper nutrition, and even reversed by the same means! Fortunately taking  serious amounts of quality Food Supplements on a regular basis from http://www.healthyanswers.co.uk/Food Supplements.htm just might help and certainly won’t harm you.

Vitamins

January 12, 2010

In the recent past there has been discussion about the value of vitamins in the treatment and prevention of cancer. Whilst vitamins may help a better source for your cancer fighting ingredients is Natural Whole Food Supplements as they contain ALL the nutrients needed to help you in your struggle against this and the other debilitating diseases. Research has found that people whose diet is low in vitamin A are more likely to risk getting cancers of the stomach, colon, rectum, lung, larynx, bladder and prostate. Alongside this is the news that vitamin C may also lower the risk of stomach and oesophagus cancers.
Vitamins aren’t the only nutrients that can help prevent cancer and other diseases; minerals also play an important role. Zinc is very important for men at risk of hardening of the prostate, a pre-cancerous condition.
How does cancer develop? The most popular theory is that it is caused by free radicals, which damage the DNA of the cells, transforming a healthy cell into a cancerous one. So you would think that we ought to prevent free radicals forming! Easier said than done as free radicals are formed by oxygen, and as the cells need oxygen to survive and without it we die! Obviously the formation of free radicals is an inevitable fact of life. There are some ways you can restrict the formation of them an important one being not smoking as you ingest several billion with every puff.
Fortunately, with Food Supplements, you can neutralise free radicals, they contain substances known as antioxidants and phytonutrients. There is a growing amount of evidence that these can and do reduce the chance that most of the major diseases will ever get a foothold in your body. These include cancer, heart disease, arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, cataracts, Alzheimer’s and diabetes. Colds and flu will be of a shorter duration and less severe.
Experiments have shown that DNA damaged by free radicals can and is repaired by you if there is a plentiful supply of nutritional substances. Yes, you CAN get them from your diet but you more than likely do not as it is nearly impossible to eat sufficient quantities of food to obtain all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to help it remain healthy to a ripe old age most of us go down the debilitating road to our demise, not dropping off the end or having the plug pulled at the last possible moment, shouting WOW what a life.
