According to Dr. Mercola, the world we are living in is stress filled with mostly mental stress, this can lead to insulin resistance.

Stress does not act as a singular force on your body but rather acts like a snowball rolling down a mountain, gradually building in size and speed until it’s virtually impossible to control. As stress builds in your body, it influences everything from your mood and brain function to your heart health and risk of both acute illness and chronic disease, including cancer.

When you become stressed your body also secretes cortisol and glucagon, both of which affect your blood sugar levels as well.1 On a metabolic level, when you’re stressed and your body enters “fight or flight” mode, glucose is released in order to give your muscles the energy needed to run and escape whatever is threatening you. In the modern day, there’s a good chance that threat is more mental than physical, however, which means you won’t need that extra energy after all.

The end result is that your body must produce more insulin to keep your blood sugar levels in check, and when you’re stressed out, your blood sugar levels will probably stay elevated much longer than they would otherwise, ultimately promoting weight gain and Type 2 diabetes.

Blood Sugar Levels Take Six Times Longer to Return to Normal When You’re Stressed

According to an article on GreenMedInfo.com, patients with diabetes no longer need to rely on drugs to manage their blood sugar. Eating the right combination of “food[s], herbs, and spices” can help boost their insulin sensitivity.

The hormone insulin makes cells “open up” and take in glucose from the blood, but with insulin resistance, cells are desensitized to insulin. This forces the body to produce more glucose, which cells refuse to take in. The end result is your insulin levels rising above the normal levels.

Chronically high insulin levels may lead to “rapid weight gain, premature aging, high blood pressure, heart disease, and higher cancer risks,” and, eventually, type-2 diabetes.

These eight herbs, spices, and foods can help restore your cells’ sensitivity to insulin. (Related: Research: Reduce insulin resistance with omega-3 fatty acids.)

  1. Berries — Studies have confirmed that after eating berries, the body “needs less insulin for sugar balance after a meal.” Eat strawberries, bilberries, lingonberries, chokeberries, cranberries, and blackberries.
  2. Berberine –– A bitter compound found in the roots of several plants like goldenseal, barberry, and Oregon grape, studies show that berberine is almost as effective as prescription diabetes drugs. Participants who took berberine “significantly decreased their fasting blood glucose, and their after-meal blood glucose.” Berberine also minimized both fasting and post-meal blood glucose levels and the patients’ insulin resistance went down by 45 percent. In a separate study, berberine proved to be just as effective as “metformin, glipizide, and rosiglitazone,” three of the top diabetes drugs on the market. Berberine has the bonus of not having any serious side effects.
  3. Black Seed (aka Nigella sativa) — In a study, 94 diabetic patients who received two grams of Nigella sativa capsules showed “significantly reduced fasting blood glucose and insulin resistance.”
  4. Cinnamon — Cinnamon helps normalize blood sugar levels in type-2 diabetics by improving a patient’s ability to respond to insulin. Cinnamon or cinnamon extracts help lower fasting blood glucose levels.
  5. Ginger — Participants in a study that received three one-gram capsules of ginger powder reduced their fasting blood sugar by 10.5 percent. In a separate study, it was confirmed that 1600 milligrams (mg) of ginger per day boosted eight markers of diabetes such as insulin sensitivity.
  6. Olive leaf extract — In a study, a group that received capsules containing olive leaf extract lowered their insulin resistance by at least 15 percent. Olive leaf extract also boosted the productivity of the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas by 28 percent. The extract has the same effect as “common diabetic therapeutics” such as metformin.
  7. Spirulina — In a randomized study of insulin-resistant patients, participants who received 19 g of spirulina daily increased their insulin sensitivity by a whopping 224.7 percent.
  8. Turmeric — In 2009, a study determined that curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, was “500 to 100,000 times more effective than the prescription drug [m]etformin at activating glucose uptake.”

Other foods that can boost insulin sensitivity

Here are other foods that you can eat to help boost your insulin sensitivity:

Another week has arrived and it is February, spring is just around the corner now.
 I will touch on how to plant your seeds to get a quick start to your garden in up coming newsletters.   What fun to enjoy growing and harvesting our own vegetables and have the children help too, they will eat more if they are part of the harvest.
Instead of typing up information for all of us in this weeks newsletter, I wanted to share these two articles from Dr Mercola for everyone to read through, and watch the videos.
This is awesome information, we need to be aware of this.
Flu is not what is killing most of the reported flu deaths around our country, it is sepsis and easily treated with intravenous (IV) vitamin C, hydrocortisone and thiamine,2 which has been shown to reduce sepsis mortality from 40 to a mere 8.5 percent,
and do not forget to take Vitamin D-3 because we have lack of sunshine this time of year.
Remember bone broth, colloidal silver also.

Special Alert: Why Some People Are Dying From the Flu (It’s Not What You Think)

You need to know what researchers are discovering about this year’s virulent strain, in case you or a loved one develops the flu and you fear it’s taking a turn for the worse. When you need emergency care and what you must immediately tell the responders if you suspect this may be happening. It could save your life.

Top Tips to Boost Your Immunity

There are all kinds of ways you can compromise your immune system and end up getting sick, but there are just as many ways you can work toward restoring your immune system to benefit your whole body, from your brain to your gut. As a result, you may just stave off the flu and the common cold.

The enemy of our lives is not Man.   It’s the devil USING OUR OWN VOICE and even in our own accent to try to torment us.   His teeth were knocked out on Calvary and he has no bite  – he is only “gumming” us until WE give it power to damage us by the very words we speak… Watch what you say.
Suggestion:  Remove the words “My arthritis, My cancer, My disease, my aching back,  DO  NOT  take ownership to those destructive issues. Say:  “The word of God says My body is healed by the stripes of Jesus and this “name the issue” is defeated and it has to go in Jesus Name.  Doctors are not the authority on life – remember they are PRACTICING medicine… DO NOT accept the report of Man, but choose to use the report of the Word of God as it truly is medicine when applied.
Remember the scripture, 3 John 1:2 I wish above all that you be in heath and prosper as YOUR SOUL prospers… its what we inwardly feed our soul that prospers us in our bodies outwardly.
So feed your soul the WORD OF GOD, its surgery to our bodies and WILL WORK!
I want to thank Keisha for all of the research she did for  this weeks newsletter about the Best and Worst foods for cold and flu season.

It is that time again! The dreaded cold and flu season. Are you prepared?

Don’t put your trust in the flu shot…the absolute best way to defeat the cold and flu this season is to have a stellar immune system.

How can I get my immune system in tip top shape for cold and flu season?

Simple answer: Watch what you eat!

Here are the top worst foods for cold and flu season:

Here are the top best foods for cold and flu season:

And don’t forget to Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!

On top of watching what you eat it would be wise to invest in some supplements and essential oils as well.

BONUS #1 – Best Supplements for cold and flu season:

The classics: elderberry syrup, zinc, echinacea, goldenseal, vitamin C.

To go along with the above suggestions I also recommend:

#1 wash hands, wash hands, wash hands.   get Thieves hand sanitizer and carry it with you or make up your own Thieves hand spray by adding 6 to 10 drops of Thieves oil in a tiny spray bottle and fill bottle with water,  carrying it with you where ever you go.   Spray on grocery cart handles, table tops, your own hands etc.   Remember viral germs can live as long as 2 weeks on hard surfaces.

#2: keep your fingers and hands away from your eyes, nose and mouth – this is where the germs enter the body, as well as breathing them in.    Our air is very dry which creates an atmosphere for our eyes or nose to be itchy.  First thing we do is itch with our fingers or hands and nothing dirtier than our hands.  Use a clean Kleenex to itch or rub eyes or nose.   A good finger washing idea is to take a bar of soap ( I recommend using a bar of Thieves soap) and dig your fingernails into the moistened top of the soap getting soap down under the finger nails, then rinse.

For cold symptoms:  Thieves drops to suck on.   Thieves essential oil:  Rubbed on bottom of your feet, then dilute with coconut oil or olive oil and apply on forehead (keeping away from eyes) cheeks, lower throat, chest, upper back  and wrists.    Take 2-3 drops of Thieves oil in warm/hot water or tea, stir up to mix and drink to get it internally.  Can be added to your smoothies also.  Even can put a couple drops on a bread cube and eat, however the clove oil flavor is rather strong.   You may also inhale Thieves oil by diffusing or sniffing your hand after applying a few drops there.  I often will drop 1 drop of Thieves oil under my tongue, it is horribly strong at first till you get use to it, use a bit of olive oil to dilute it, but it goes right into the system faster this way.

Should any oil ever get into eyes, place olive oil in palm of hand and bend over putting eye into your palm with the olive oil and blink several times getting the olive oil into your eye.   It will stop the burning.  You may see the oil in your vision with rainbow of colors for a bit, this is normal.

Recipes for cold using essential oils in empty capsules:

Cold Blend #1: 2 drops lemon, 4 drops Eucalyptus radiate, 5 drops rosemary,4 drops peppermint & 3 drops cypress.  Put in empty capsule and take with water.

Cold Blend #2:  5 drops rosemary, 4 drops RC, 4 drops frankincense, 1 drop oregano & 2 drops peppermint.  Put in empty capsule and take with water.
If you do not have empty pill capsules, these oils can be mixed together in warm water or milk and drank.  Remember they are powerfully strong, but the flavor doesn’t last too long.

Bath Blend for relief of cold symptoms:   2 drops eucalyptus Radiata, 5 drops frankincense, 6 drops spruce, & 8 drops wintergreen.  Stir the oils into 1/2 cup Epsom salt or baking soda, then add the mixture to hot bath water while the tub is filling.   Fill tub quite high.  Soak in the hot bath until water cools.

Congestive cough:  Use Eucalyptus globulus, Peppermint (if taking in liquid use a toothpick to get a tiny amount to use and dip in oil and into your liquid as extremely strong) , RC, Raven, marjoram, hyssop, Thieves, Melrose, Idaho balsam fir.  Also you can mix up raw Honey and lemon juice mixture and swallow.

Mix 1 or 2 drops (except for peppermint, see above) of any one of these or a combination you have available into warm water, milk, juice making it like a syrup  and sip or drink slowly.

Mix a few drops or use one alone and diffuse.  If you have no diffuser, you can make one by putting the oils into a small pan half full of water and turn on the burner to medium just bring to simmer and turn on low to diffuse into the room.  But do get a few diffusers to have in different rooms, especially the bedrooms.   They are available at Young Living or at Healthy Concepts on Westhill Blvd, and not that expensive.

Mix up a few drops of any of those oils and put in warm water and gargle

Topical compress:  sprinkle over warm moist wash cloth or small towel and apply 1-2 times daily over chest, over throat and on upper back.

Mucus expectorant blend:   Using essential oils you will obtain faster and stronger results by inhalation than by ingesting the oils.   So diffuse or inhale a blend of:  3 drops lemon, 3 drops Eucalyptus globulus, & 2 drops pine.

 

For Influenza:   First essential oils suggested for flu are Ravensara and Immupro , then Thieves, Exodus II, Di-Gize and then Inner Defense tablets.
Put any of these or blend of these oils in diffuser/diffusers, apply topically 50/50 blend with coconut oil or olive oil on chest, stomach, lower back 2 to 3 times daily.  These oils may also be added to a warm moist compress over lower abdomen.  Easy way is to soak a moist small towel in a blend of these oils in bathroom sink, wring out and place on lower abdomen with a strip of handi-wrap over the moist towel, lay a larger bath towel folded up to keep the oils directly on the area.  Could use a warm heating pad for 20 minutes over the tummy area.
Drink Rice Milk at least 8 ounces 4-5 times a day.  Keep hydrated with good water also.

Influenza bath recipe:

2 drops Eucalyptus Radiata 6 drops frankincense, 3 drops blue cypress, 6 drops spruce, 15 drops ravenssara and 1 drop wintergreen.

Mix these oils thoroughly into 1/4 cup Epson salt or baking soda and then add this mixture into hot bath water while tub is filling (quite high in the tub).  Soak in the tub until the water becomes cool.

God gave us these oils to use for medical epidemics and everyday living.   Always pray over any blend or oils you are using to enhance these oils for our good.

Here’s why homemade electrolyte drink is so easy and  so effective:

The raw honey is naturally anti-microbial and great for infections. (see our post here for more info on raw honey) There may be a myriad of reasons for the dehydration, but in the case of illnesses, raw honey is my go-to sweetener because of it’s beneficial minerals and soothing properties.  Also, the sugar content will help restore low blood sugar levels that are common after bouts of diarrhea or vomiting.

Real, freshly squeezed lemon juice is a natural thirst quencher and helps fight fatigue.  It is also great for fever reduction and a natural source of vitamin C (source).

And finally, the amazing power of sea salt is what gives this drink an extra punch and is what aids in replacing the lost trace minerals and electrolytes.  Make sure that you are NOT using regular ol’ table salt; which has been refined at high temperatures, is often bleached for uniform color, and contains almost no trace minerals.  Sea salt contains all 92 of the vital trace minerals that our bodies need, so make sure to use pure, unrefined, high quality sea salt in order to make sure that you are truly replacing the minerals that are needed during re-hydration. source   

I don’t technically worry about dosage when we have the stomach flu because honestly, you’ll know when they’ve had too much… I simply try to get my kids (and myself and hubby) to sip on this throughout the day as much as possible, or several sips per hour.  This is a basic electrolyte replacement drink , so you don’t just need to use it when you’re sick – it’s ideal for workouts, traveling, and hot summer days.  My hubby does manual labor and in the summer time, I send several containers of this with him to work each day, to make sure that he stays hydrated.

NOTE FOR BABIES: It is not recommended that you give babies under 1 year of age raw honey, so instead, I substitute palm sugar to sweeten the concoction.  It has a very low glycemic index and is rich in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. Here’s a great article about palm sugar and it’s uses.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Dogs are getting the flu also and the only known cure for Dog Flu is Coconut oil.  Of course start out slowly, like with humans, 1/2 teaspoon each meal for week, then 1 teaspoon each meal for another week and then up to 1 tablespoon each meal every day.  Also rub on fur as it soaks in and is not greasy.
I give little dabs of coconut oil as a treat sometimes during the day.

Vitamin C is a potent ally against viral diseases

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and antiviral agent that boosts the immune system and prevents damage from free radicals. It also promotes production of interferon, which helps prevent cells from being infected in the first place.

In one study, megadoses of vitamin C (1,000 mg hourly for the first six hours, then dosages of 1,000 mg three times a day) reduced the severity of flu symptoms — by a drastic 85 percent.

When administered in sufficient dosages, vitamin C has caused dramatic recoveries from viral diseases.  For example, in one case, megadoses of vitamin C caused a New Zealand dairy farmer to make a complete recovery from life-threatening swine flu.

In a turn of events documented by “60 Minutes,” Allan Smith developed white-out pneumonia and hairy cell leukemia as complications of swine flu. Placed on life support and in a medically-induced coma, Smith was not expected to survive – until a family member insisted on a course of high-dose intravenous vitamin C.

The results were nothing short of miraculous. Smith’s condition improved within a day – and his improvement continued steadily as long as vitamin C was administered. His condition deteriorated when the vitamin C was abruptly stopped – then resumed as the vitamin was reintroduced.

Check out the amazing video (below) to see how Mr. Smith fully recovered.

 

Elderberry extract stimulates the action of lymphocytes

Elderberry extract is another effective antiviral warrior that you can enlist in the struggle against influenza. With powerful antioxidant properties, elderberry extract combats free radicals and enhances the immune system by boosting production of disease-fighting lymphocytes.

Sold under the brand name Sambucol, elderberry extract is available in syrups and lozenges. It should be taken at the first sign of flu symptoms.

Echinacea is a time-honored and effective flu remedy

This trusty herbal standby has been shown in studies to inhibit viruses and rev up the immune system. Echinacea is believed to bind to receptors on the surfaces of white blood cells, helping to stimulate infection-fighting processes.

It is available in capsules and liquid form.

Olive leaf extracts attack pathogens

With potent antiviral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, olive leaf extract wages all-out war on influenza.

Studies have shown that its active ingredient, oleuropein, can enhance phagocytosis, the process by which immune cells engulf and destroy pathogens. You can take olive leaf extract in capsule or liquid form – and even brew leaves into a soothing tea. (Here’s to a flu-free season!)

Of course, as always, check with a trusted integrative physician to see what’s best for you.

Flupocalypse – Yes it is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections. 
I touched on the flu as last weeks newsletter topic, and because of the latest intense reporting of flu epidemic in California and the LA Times reporting, I wished to readdress this topic again for all of us.
If you really want to avoid the flu, don’t be injected with heavy metals and viral fragments. Instead, boost your natural immunity using nutrition, healing foods and healthy lifestyle habits and know that our bodies were designed to heal itself.
In truth, the three best things you can do to prevent the flu are:

These are supported by literally thousands of published, peer-reviewed scientific studies   science-supported evidence for these supplements protecting people from influenza, read this piece entitled High-dose zinc supplements found to speed recovery from colds and flu by 300%, which cites a study conducted at the University of Helsinki and published in Open Forum Infectious Diseases

IMPORTANT:  It is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections.
The structure is a “perfect” self-perpetuating medical hoax rooted in fake science and relentless media propaganda

But nutrition is not mentioned in the LA Times story or other media propaganda pieces. That’s because their sole purpose is to promote the “flupocalypse” mass hysteria and tie it to a nationwide flu vaccine push that demands mindless, fact-less obedience to medical quackery. Why doesn’t the LA Times teach its readers how to prevent the flu with nutrition and natural substances?  Because that obviously doesn’t promote the profits of the corrupt vaccine industry, which dictates nearly all infectious disease coverage published by the dishonest media.

So predictable. The mainstream propaganda media — all now functioning as prostitutes for the pseudoscience vaccine industry — are claiming a “flupocalypse” is devastating America. The solution? You’re all supposed to get injected with the mercury-laced flu shot, of course, in order to “do your part” to halt the complete destruction of human civilization now being implied by the media propagandists. (These are all the same media outlets that also claim global warming is causing all the freezing cold weather across America, so their grip on scientific reality is obviously lacking.)

“California hospitals face a ‘war zone’ of flu patients,” screams a panicked Los Angeles Times headline. True to the war zone hysteria, the imagery of “triage tents” is invoked to try to mirror scenes from actual battlegrounds. From the LA Times article:

Hospitals across the state are sending away ambulances, flying in nurses from out of state and not letting children visit their loved ones for fear they’ll spread the flu. Others are canceling surgeries and erecting tents in their parking lots so they can triage the hordes of flu patients.

Filled with words like “crisis” and “fear” and “war zone” and “trenches,” the article is a masterpiece of flu vaccine propaganda, relentlessly equating the common flu with scenes from D-Day or the trenches of World War I. This mindless hysteria is predictably interwoven with pseudoscience medical advice that pushes the very same useless flu shot vaccines that contributed to the crisis in the first place. Via the LA Times:

Doctors say that people who haven’t yet gotten the flu shot should still get it. It takes about two weeks to take effect.

The story also utterly fails to mention that flu shots contain mercury, a brain-damaging heavy metal that’s intentionally used as a vaccine preservative called Thimerosal. This toxic mercury is what’s responsible for the increase in spontaneous abortions in pregnant women who receive the shot, as was shockingly demonstrated by a CDC-funded study published last year.

That’s no oversight. The vaccine industry propagandists deliberately withhold such information from the public, even knowing that unborn babies will be killed by those vaccines due to mercury toxicity. The LA Times also withholds this information from the public, actually contributing to the vaccine-induced abortions in women across California. (Then again, life-hating leftists love to abort babies by any means, so this is fully aligned with their overall mission in the first place.)

The media — is false and deliberately deceptive. Far from offering bulletproof protection, flu shots actually make people more vulnerable to influenza infections, which of course contributes to more people catching the flu and then falsely thinking they need more flu shots for “more protection.”

Yet it is the flu shots themselves that are leading to an increase in influenza infections.

Medical studies conducted at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center found that women who received flu vaccines had a weakened immune system response in subsequent years.

Lisa Christian, PhD, the lead researcher on the studies, concluded,

*****  “Growing evidence shows that those who received a flu shot in the prior year have lower antibody responses in the current year.”  ****

The flu vaccine, in other words, perpetuates the myth that flu vaccines are needed by ensuring influenza spreads more rapidly than would otherwise occur. In effect, flu vaccines spread the very infections that generate more demand for flu vaccines. The structure is a “perfect” self-perpetuating medical hoax rooted in fake science and relentless media propaganda.
Anyone who has taken prescription medications are given an insert sheet on the medication and we are asked to read the precautions on this insert sheet.
Well there is an insert sheet (which no one is shown)  for the  Flulaval flu vaccine, which openly admits, “…there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.”  FLULAVAL insert, it says in black and white text, “Safety and effectiveness of FLULAVAL in pediatric patients have not been established.” And,  “FLULAVAL has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”

And if you really want to avoid the flu, don’t let the toxic pharma industrial complex inject you with heavy metals and viral fragments. Simply boost your natural immunity using the nutrition, healing foods and lifestyle habits that your body was designed to leverage for your protection

HOW TO USE MULLEN GARLIC OIL OR  ONIONS  FOR EAR ACHES OR INFECTIONS:  
I wanted to share this healthy alternative to flush out an  ear infection in this weeks newsletter as an addendum to this weeks newsletter –   particularly because so many of you have had issues with flu or colds, and ear infections could follow a cold or flu infection.
Earaches are downright miserable. Of my 4 children, only one was bothered with earaches following any cold bug.  I remember her crawling along the hallway on her  hands and knees, to dizzy to walk and in horrible pain.   I laid her on her side and looked into her ears.  Her ear canal was actually closed completely up in both ears.  I immediately got out the bottle of Mullen Garlic oil.  Instructions were to put the oil on a cotton ball and let the oil slowly roll into the ear canal.  This was impossible with closed over ear canals.  So I put drops in one ear with her laying on her side.   Told her to lay there a bit.  It took 10 minutes before the oil finally went down into the canal, then we did the other side.
I shared this information with our family pediatrician who also (at that time- 1975) did not like to dispense so many antibiotics.     He later informed me that he ordered a case of Mullen Garlic oil and put his patients on this oil for infections with excellent results instead of using Amoxicillin.    Of course, today this would not happen.
Do not  use Q-tips or other instruments.   Rule: put nothing smaller than your elbow in your ears.
Mullen Garlic oil can be purchased at a health food store.
Sometimes the garlic oil is not enough to relieve the pain  and that is when it is time to turn to “onion juice” .
While you prepare the onion juice, you could have the child try and relax in a warm bath tub, sometimes the warm moist air will loosen up the drainage in the ear, but also take the child’s mind off of the discomfort.  Do not leave the child alone if they are young.
  1. Turn oven on to 450 degrees and place onion inside on a pan (no preheating). I let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove onion from oven and allow it to cool long enough to be able to handle (it was still warm).
  3. Once the onion was cooled down slightly  cut it in half and squeez over a small bowl. The onion juice comes easily and you only need a bit. (If there is any ‘stuff’ in the juice, strain it easily by pouring it through a piece of paper towel or a very thin cloth.)
  4. The juice should be cool enough to use at this point. Using a medicine eye  dropper, put a few drops into the ear keeping head tilted to one side to retain the juice for several minutes. (Do this for at least a few minutes, but more is good.)  Then repeat on the other side.
  5. This should relieve the pain and your little one will feel much better and be able to rest peacefully.   You will feel better too.
  6.  You could add a few drops a few hours later or the next morning.
  7. This is also good for adults as well.

Onions contain anti-bacterial, healing and anti-inflammatory properties that quickly and effectively sooth and calm the infected ear, allowing the body to heal without the inflamation and pressure causing pain.

Earaches and infections can become very serious and I encourage you to use your intuition and best judgement. Consult a trusted physician if you are ever in doubt or if the ear infection does not improve.

I buy a small bag of small “cheap” onions during wintertime and I peel 3 a day and cut them in half.  I also cut the bottom and top off so the onion can sit on a small saucer.  I place one center side cut up on 6 small plates or saucers and put one in each room of the house, living room, kitchen, bathroom, each bedroom.   After a bit there will be no onion smell.   These onions will collect virus and bacteria floating in the air of each room.  In the morning I toss all the onions away in a bag and place in the garbage can.   And cut up more onions.   This is a cheap way to kill bacteria and virus bugs.

Let’s all make the decision to take good care of ourselves in 2018 – like you never have before so we don’t fall back into the same old patterns.    What are you deciding to do – lose weight, eat better, break bad habits.
I have a few thoughts for you
If weight loss is on your New Years list, I want to encourage you to get serious.   Obesity is the second leading cause of cancer behind smoking which is another habit to break.
Clinical trials of CLA safflower Oil have proven that women who  used the CLA Safflower Oil Dietary Supplement were able to lose and average of 21 pounds in one month and with continued use kept the weight off.   This is considered a very safe oil to use.
Mediterranean diet has proven to lower the risk of potentially life-threatening conditions such as cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Researchers believe that olive oil and olive leaf extract play a major role in conferring these benefits.   olive leaf extract, it’s made from olive leaves and offers a richer source of the natural plant compound – oleuropein –

Olive leaf extract helps to reduce the risk of a heart attack

Olive leaf extract can significantly lower blood levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, promoting cardiovascular health. prevents its oxidation – which is one of the first steps in the development of atherosclerosis.

Also, olive leaf extracts reduces the “stickiness” of blood platelets, directly preventing formation of arterial plaque and cutting risk of heart attack and stroke.

Counter the negative effects of influenza, colds plus much more…

In the 1800’s, crushed olive leaves were served in drinks to lower fevers, and brewed into teas to treat malaria. Two hundred years later, studies are confirming olive leaf extracts powerful antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial effects.  It also destroys Candida albicans fungus and E. coli bacteria as well. Researchers say that olive leaf extract can combat both influenza and shingles – AND  the common cold. .

Olive leaf extracts reversed many changes associated with HIV-1 infection – a truly promising finding.

Protect your brain health and cognitive function

Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, Olive leaf extract can protect against cognitive decline, as well as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.  In animal studies, pretreatment with olive leaf extract reduced the death of brain tissue after laboratory-induced strokes – by an impressive 55 percent.

Reduce your risk of diabetes

Olive leaf extracts work against diabetes by significantly  lowering blood sugar, slowing the digestion of starches into simple sugars, delaying the absorption of sugars from the intestine and promoting the uptake of glucose from blood into tissues.

In one study, olive leaf extract actually outperformed glyburide, a common prescription blood sugar-lowering drug. There is also some evidence that olive leaf extracts can reverse pre-diabetic condition that leads to diabetes if unchecked.

Most impressive of all: studies have shown that 500 mg of olive extract – once a day – significantly reduces hemoglobin A1c levels, a long-term indicator of blood sugar.

For best results take on an empty stomach with 8oz. of water. Additional water throughout the day is recommended, at least eight 8oz glasses of good water.

Lower blood pressure – naturally

By reducing pressure in the heart’s left ventricle and improving flow to coronary blood vessels, olive leaf extract can cause significant drops in elevated blood pressure.

In a double-blind clinical study , researchers found that 500 mg – twice a day – of olive leaf extract was as effective as Captopril, a popular pharmaceutical anti-hypertensive drug used to lower blood pressure.

(In fact, olive leaf extracts are so effective at lowering blood pressure that experts recommend that people who already take blood pressure medication speak to their doctor before supplementing!)

Ease arthritis

Herbalists and natural healers have long advised olive leaves for the treatment of arthritis – and modern medical research supports the ability of olive leaf extracts to slow the development of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Research has shown that olive leaf extracts can prevent rheumatoid arthritis symptoms from developing – as well as reducing joint swelling in osteoarthritis and decreasing the production of pro-inflammatory molecules.

Olive leaf extracts aggressively targets cancer cells

Cell and animal studies have shown that the oleuropein in olive leaf extracts protects against various types of cancer – and cuts production of a substance that helps dissolve the junctions between healthy cells and allows cancer to spread.

It also protects DNA from mutations that could potentially trigger cancer – and strongly inhibits the growth of tumors in animal studies.

In one animal study, in fact, olive leaf extract caused the regression and disappearance of tumors within 12 days. Researchers noted that the tumors literally crumbled and fall apart – with no cancer cells left alive within.

So far, researchers have credited olive leaf extract  with reducing the occurrence and development of cancers of the brain, breast, bladder, prostate and skin.

When shopping for any supplement, get the best brand. Pure is one great brand to trust.  Natural Healthy Concept health store on Westhill Blvd have good consultants to assist you.  Also, The NaturalHealth365 Store offers the highest potency olive leaf extract on the market.  Click here to order today
