Women outlive Men

July 2, 2010

It’s a sad fact of life that, statistically, women outlive men by an average of six or seven years. Women also benefit from the beginning; all the problems that can affect babies in the womb are more common in males than females, and at birth a boy’s development is about four to six weeks behind a girl’s.

More boys than girls suffer from hyperactivity, reading and behavioural problems, clumsiness, stammering and autism. Once they make it to adulthood, boys are more likely to suffer from circulatory disorders (including the biggest killer, heart disease), diabetes, alcoholism, ulcers and lung cancer. Male infertility rates are also on the increase.

Why is this?

One of the problems is testosterone. Whilst helping on many areas, it does have some drawbacks, including raising cholesterol levels and blood pressure, it lowers the immune function and increases aggressive behaviour, which endangers health. Luckily there is an upside to this gloom as there are ways to reduce the risk of these problems.

Heart Disease.

One in four British men will have a heart attack before they retire, and one in three will eventually die from a heart attack or stroke, this is a good area to start working on. If you can exercise you can halve the risk of dying of heart disease. Fairly obviously diet is very important. Avoid saturated fats and refined sugars (which the body stores as fat).

Vitamin E can keep your artery walls flexible.

Coenzyme Q10 can improve energy production in the heart.
Magnesium can feed the heart muscles. Calm the nervous system and relax muscles.

Crataegus (Hawthorn) a herb that gently rebalances blood pressure. It can be taken alongside conventional medication, so long as the doctor is informed. It needs to be taken for at least six months and can be taken long term. It is particularly good for angina, but helps most heart problems.

Garlic lowers blood pressure by dilating blood vessel walls. It thins the blood by inhibiting platelet stickiness; this reduces the risk of blood clots and aids in preventing heart attacks. It also lowers serum cholesterol levels and aids in digestion. Garlic is useful for many diseases and illnesses, including cancer. It is a potent immune system booster and a natural antibiotic. It should be consumed daily!

Stress affects most people to some extent, but men often lack the safety valve that women have—the ability to have a good natter and moan to their friends, or bawl their eyes out and feel better afterwards. Stress often interferes with sleep, which is vital for allowing the body time to heal and restore tissues to prime functioning order, but also for processing the events of the day—good therefore for mental/emotional health.

Vitamin B to strengthen the nervous system against stress, physical and emotional.
Passiflora Complex is a calming remedy that can be taken long or short term alongside other medication. It helps to relieve stress relaxes the muscles and makes sleeping easier.

Urogenital Disease. The prostate gland contributes to sexual health by producing fluid for semen, in which sperm is transported. It is the size of a walnut and wraps itself around the urinary tract as it leaves the bladder. As men age the prostate gland enlarges, slowly squashing the urinary tract and reducing the space for urine to pass through.

Signs of an enlarged prostate are:
· A feeble urinary stream—can’t reach halfway up the wall any more.
· Difficulty starting to pee.
· Stopping and starting rather than a steady stream.
· Having to pee frequently and urgently.
· Having to get up frequently in the night to pee.
· Feeling that you can’t empty your bladder completely.
· Loss of libido.
· Recurrent urinary tract infections.

As urine can’t empty efficiently from the bladder due to the constriction caused by the prostate gland, stagnant urine stays in the bladder and easily becomes infected, adding to the general misery. All men are vulnerable to this condition, as the prostate starts to enlarge after the age of 30. 50% of men over 50 will have some symptoms, and this reaches nearly 100% after 80 years.

Passing blood in your urine is always a bad sign. There are several different things that might be indicated by this but all of them need to be checked by a health care provider.

· Zinc is a good general healer and particularly good for the prostate.
· Saw Palmetto is a herb that men should be very grateful for as far as the prostate is concerned. It gently reduces inflammation in it, causing it to shrink and release it’s strangle hold on the urinary tract. Unlike conventional drugs used for this problem Saw Palmetto does not affect your libido or erectile function; in fact because the whole area feels so much better it can have a very positive effect.

Use Saw Palmetto if you have symptoms of BPH, but also use it to maintain good prostate health either before you get the symptoms or once you think you are better! Remember that when you are over 30, the pesky thing is going to enlarge slightly every year, so you need to keep on top of it.

As urine will be flowing more freely from the bladder, you will be less likely to get urinary tract infections. There are those that claim that Saw Palmetto has a positive effect on male baldness, although these claims haven’t yet been proven.

Once prostate symptoms have improved, it has been found that the sex life tends to be so much better.

I can personally vouch for this.

You might be asking yourself, What is The Wonder Plant?

The answer is that it’s one of the names given to the Aloe Vera plant. Many peoples, nations and cultures have used it and documented the beneficial effects it has had on them. The fact that so many people have written about it and given it such names as Heaven’s Blessing, Dietary Plant, Plant of Life, Healing Plant, shows it was highly prized.

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant with an inner gel and has been used for centuries to maintain health and enhance beauty. It was prized by the Greeks and Egyptians among others.

It contains many of the nutrients your body needs to function to its full capacity.

It has proved helpful in curing you of the following illnesses: Asthma, allergies, digestive problems, etc. It strengthens your immune system, heals injured joints and many other things.

Up to fairly recently it was used and prized all around the world, but then drugs were invented, that were going to cure all ailments, and people stopped using it. But now with drugs getting such bad publicity people are returning to it, and other natural remedies once again.
Where do you suppose super bugs have come from?

And in the wake of them doing so clinical trials have been conducted and they have proved that what others had discovered from personal experience was indeed so. If you haven’t tried Aloe Vera, either externally or internally then you should as it has the ability to heal almost all your health issues.

Don’t You Dare Give Up!

Don’t You Dare Give Up!

By Randy Gage

February 26th, 2010

It’s 5 am and I should be sleeping.  But I’ve been tossing and turning for over an hour thinking about what I wanted to say to you.  It’s about the work you do and the dreams you want to live…

In our business we can earn a lot of money, win those trips to exotic locales, and drive those gorgeous bonus cars.  We have the chance to really get our freedom.

But that’s the thing about freedom.  It’s never free…

Freedom is the by-product of success and you must be willing to pay the price for success.  And success never goes on sale.  You have to pay the market price.  And that can be so very hard…

I know.  I struggled for five years in this business.  Sacrificed things to buy my monthly product order.  Alienated everyone around me, pestering them to join my business.  Argument after argument.

Because I could explain all the rational, logical reasons everyone should be in the business.  And if you wanted to argue with me, I could explain all the reasons you were being an idiot.

For some reason that approach didn’t work very well.  So I switched to strategy number two…

Begging.  But that approach didn’t work much better.  So for five years I went to presentation after presentation, bought tape after tape, attended meeting after meeting.  I talked about travelling the beaches of the world, while I parked my broken down junk heap in the back, so no one would see what I was driving.

I remember the first house meeting I did.  Invited about 14 or 15 people and waited, brimming over with excitement.  Of course you know what happened…

No one.  Not one.

Common sense tells you I should have quit.  But dreams never come true with common sense.  Dreams come true because they are bold, daring, and imaginative.  Because they are strong enough to pull you toward them.

I could have quit, should have quit, and would have quit.  But I came to a realization that changed everything for me:  I realized I was the most ambitious person I knew.

And there was freedom in that line of thinking.  Which eventually led to the real freedom.

I wish I could say after five years I magically flipped a switch and became rich, but that isn’t true.  But things started to change…

I began to understand the importance of a system and how duplication worked.  Began daily self-development, becoming less of the person people didn’t want to work with and more of the person they did.  Learned some skill sets.

And today I have those exotic cars, live in my dream homes, contribute to charities in a meaningful way, earn millions of dollars and have my freedom.  And while I appreciate the money, toys and trips, it’s about a lot more than that.

Which is why I’m writing you…

I have been where most of you are, and made it to the level most are even afraid to dream of.  So let me share what I have learned along the way, but most importantly, what I want for you.  Here are the four things I want for you:

1) Live a Life of Adventure.

Stop watching actors live adventure in movies and TV shows.  It’s time for you to live your own adventure.

I have flown the Concord, prayed in the Crystal Cathedral, fallen in love in Paris, taken a shower on the A380 airplane, flown in a hot air balloon, watched whales playing in Hawaii, meditated in a Shaolin Temple, piloted an airplane, rode an elephant through the rainforest in Thailand, visited all the world’s greatest opera houses, watched a ballgame in Wrigley Field, rode horses through the mountains, and heard the call to worship at mosques in Istanbul.  And I’m just getting started…

Is your adventure started yet?  Life is not about fighting rush hour traffic, working in a cubicle, or sending your kids to day-care.   Life is for living.  And that means you.

2) Get Your Freedom.

See number one.  You are not meant to be woken up with an alarm clock.  You are supposed to wake up when you finish sleeping.  When you wake up, you should be the one to choose how you are going to spend your day, and whom you are going to spend it with.  You’re supposed to order from the left side of the menu, not the right side.

Freedom is about having choices.  Whether it’s choosing what car to drive, home to live in, or exotic locale you want to vacation in.

It’s about choosing the causes to support, the school you want your kids to go to, and the people you want in your life.  Choosing to live out loud, in colour, with passion.

3) Right Injustice.

How often have you seen a situation that wasn’t right and felt powerless to stop it?  How many times have you wanted to right a wrong, but didn’t have the time or money or freedom to do it?

I’ve been able to right many an injustice.  But I couldn’t do that much when I was trapped and broke.  I can now because I am free.

Want to do a mission in the Philippines, help the starving kids in Africa, or the earthquake victims in Haiti?  Do what you can now, but to really make a meaningful difference, you probably need time, money and freedom.  Which leads us to…

4) Move from Success to Significance

I’m a former minimum wage dishwasher who became a multi-millionaire.  I am truly blessed.  And yes I appreciate the cars, homes and money this business has brought me.  That satisfies you for a while.  But then you want more…

You want to make a difference.  Leave a legacy.  Build something that outlives you.

That’s when life really begins. That’s when you know the world is a better place because you are in it.  And when be a better place even after you’re gone.

Whether it’s supporting the arts, building an orphanage, or saving the rainforest.  Maybe it’s sponsoring a Little League team, mentoring a young person, or starting a shelter for battered women.  Or all of the above.

I don’t know what is in your heart to do, but I know there is something.  And that’s what I challenge you to do.   Yes I wish freedom, lifestyle and all the goodies for you.  And I also wish you love, meaning and leading a life of significance.

It won’t be easy; I get that.  It means sacrifice.

Because it means at 7 pm, when your spouse is home and your kids want to play, you’re leaving to go to a meeting.  It means you’ll miss a chance to worship some weekends when you’re working with a long distance line somewhere.  It means making those calls to candidates long after the excitement and motivation of the big event has worn off.

But I had a mantra that got me free.  And it can get you free.  Here it is:

“I will do today what others will not do, so tomorrow I can do what others cannot do.”

Will you do that for me?  Will you do that for yourself?  Will you do that for all the people you’re going to be able to help?

The pain of discipline is far easier than the pain of regret.  When you feel fear, you must profess faith.  Because faith is deaf, dumb and blind.

Faith is deaf to rejection, dumb to failure, and blind to the possibility of defeat.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  It is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

We can’t see them, but we have a vision for them.  That is why we do self-development every morning; speak those affirmations, put up those pictures on the refrigerator.

Doing what we do is not easy.  It’s not supposed to be.  But it is simple.  And important.  Not just for your freedom and your dreams, but the freedom and dreams of everyone you will make a difference for.  Most people today doubt their beliefs and believe their doubts.  You have to be different.

Please.  Don’t you dare take down your dream board or those pictures on your refrigerator.  Don’t you dare let your spouse or kids see you quit.  Don’t you dare give up on your dreams!

That’s what I want to tell you this morning.

If you need help, get over to Amazon and pick up a couple of my books.  For training in the skill sets necessary for success, get the new edition of my book, “How to Build a Multi-Level Money Machine” here:

If you have worthiness issues, or think you may be self-sabotaging your success, get, “Why You’re Dumb, Sick & Broke…And How to Get Smart, Healthy & Rich!” here:

If you don’t have enough room on your credit card right now, get them from the library.  But get them.  Because the dream really is real.  I’m living proof of that.  And it can be real for you.

You’re worth it.  You really are.  When you first looked at this wild, crazy business, you saw something.  Felt something.  Knew something.

Something spoke to you, and reawakened dreams you hadn’t thought about in a long time.  And introduced new ones.

Live those dreams.  That is my dream for you.

Thank you Randy Brilliant, I hope I can help some one who is about to give up with this. Adrian. http://www.healthyanswers.co.uk

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.

Dehydration

November 27, 2009

Did you know that most people today are chronically
“dehydrated?”

That simply means that they are not drinking enough
water and it is causing a number of symptoms like
complaints of “brain fog,” “fatigue,” and “exhaustion.”

Try drinking an 8 oz. cup of water today every hour
on the hour and see what happens. After doing that
for two days.

Science Backs Cod Liver Oil Arthritis Cure!

November 4, 2009

For immediate release
14 February 2002

Scientists at Cardiff University have confirmed what thousands of people with arthritis have believed for years. Cod Liver Oil really is effective in treating joint pain and can slow, even reverse, the destruction of joint cartilage.

Cartilage is the ‘gristle’ that cushions bones and prevents them from grinding against each other. Loss of cartilage leads to osteoarthritis, the painful and disabling condition experienced by 1.5 million people in the UK and the major reason for joint replacement surgery.

Cod Liver Oil’s reputation for relieving the inflammatory processes involved in rheumatoid arthritis, a disease of the immune system affecting around 350,000 people including children, is already well established.

These new findings, by Professor Bruce Caterson in the School of Biosciences, bring hope to sufferers of the more prevalent osteoarthritic joint disease, particularly to those who are unable, because of adverse side effects, to take the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and COX-2 inhibitors commonly prescribed for the condition.

Professor Caterson explains that the Omega-3 fatty acids in Cod Liver Oil work by switching off the aggrecan- and collagen-degrading enzymes that break down joint cartilage. This, in effect, slows the progress of cartilage destruction that occurs in arthritis, reduces inflammation and thus lessens pain. He goes on to say, “Two years ago, research teams led by Professor John Harwood and myself at Cardiff University reported findings suggesting that the Omega-3 fatty acids in Cod Liver Oil can reduce cartilage degradation and inflammation in arthritic disease. Our most recent work shows that by exposing human osteoarthritic cartilage to Cod Liver Oil in the laboratory for just 24 hours we can turn off, or reverse, the action of the degradative enzymes and inflammatory factors affecting the tissue”.

Adds Professor Harwood, “This is where science and old wives’ tales coincide. Our findings are consistent with advice that taking Cod Liver Oil in early adulthood could prevent the onset of osteoarthritis and would reduce the harmful symptoms associated with the disease.”

A spokesperson for the Arthritis Research Campaign, which part-funded the research, commented: ‘We are currently directing a share of our research grants to investigation of non-drug therapies as many people are unable to tolerate the side effects of drug treatment. We are delighted that something as simple and widely available as Cod Liver Oil has the potential to bring relief and restore quality of life to so many’.

Professor Caterson’s findings will be published in the journal Arthritis and Rheumatism later this year.
