Are You a Health Millionaire?

Published by under Experiences,Health

I had an experience once that taught me that I was health rich beyond measure.   This was about 20 years ago and at that time I was selling exercise equipment for a nationwide outlet in a mall in Southern California.   I believed in the product and I enjoyed teaching people how to use the exercise machines and the benefits of a regular exercise program.   I did not make much money but I enjoy helping people improve their lives and I always have and always will.

 

One day a very nice young woman came into the store and asked for me by name.   She told me that I came highly recommended by a friend of hers who was very happy with the new exercise equipment I sold them.   I thanked her and asked her “how can I help you?”   She told me it was her husband who needed my help.   She said that he would come by the store later that day and that she wanted me to assist him.   I told her that I would be glad to help him.

 

She then told me that selling him on exercise and buying the equipment will not be easy that he is a tough customer.   She said that he owns his own business and he was used to getting his way.   She further said that he was recovering from a heart attack and multiple bypass surgeries, that she and the doctors were urging him to start exercising soon and he was resisting the idea.   The doctors had said that he needed to make some changes in his life like an exercise program or they feared that the next heart attack may be fatal.  

 

This very nice woman started becoming a little emotional.   She said “our life is wonderful together I do not want to lose him just when everything is coming together for us and our children.”   I assured her that if he had the slightest inclination to start an exercise routine that I would find it and move him to buy the equipment and get started.   We exchanged a few more words, she thanked me and left.

 

Later that day toward the end of my shift the lady’s husband came into the store and asked for me.   I met a very pleasant gentleman, middle aged, intelligent, successful but obviously ill and out of shape.   I took him through the different pieces of equipment we had, explaining the features and benefits.   At the same time I also explained how to begin an exercise program and its benefits.  

 

He listened patiently but I could see that he would have rather been anywhere but here in this store talking with me about exercise and its equipment.   Soon he was taking control of the conversation and steering it in the direction he wanted it to go.   I knew I was losing his attention and before long I would not be able to help him or his wife and children.

 

He started talking about all his business success, his property and showing me pictures of his RV and their place in the mountains.   He was really enjoying himself now as he talked about a motorcycle he had, his boat and many other things that he had acquired.   I kept silent as he went on and on but there was a realization I was coming to about him and his situation that I could not fully put into words yet.

 

He was now finishing up and getting ready to leave the store.    In another moment I was going get a handshake, a smile and his back as he walked out into the mall.   But during the handshake I caught him up and I said “Before you leave I need to tell you something personal that you need to hear.”   He looked a little startled and said “what’s that”?   

 

I stepped just outside the store with him and said “Let me tell you something I have been thinking about while you were talking”.    Here is what I said for garcinia cambogia extrakt, “Everything you have, your business, money, property, house, cabin, RV, motorcycle, boat, your power, mean nothing if you do not have your health.   They are only things that are worth less then the dust on the bottoms of your shoes without you.   You could go out today, lose everything and get it all back, which could be easy for you.   But you cannot buy back your health and not your family; they are what is important.   And without your health even your family is in jeopardy.”    I stopped talking and then stood there looking at him waiting for a reply.

 

I noticed he seemed a little red faced and a bit angry from the look on his face.   I thought to myself that possibly I was going to have a complaint logged against me by this man.   Then he started to talk “You know what, you have brought up something that I have not thought of in quite the way you put it, you got to me.   I will be back tomorrow afternoon with my wife and we will pick out some equipment so I can get started, thanks.”   He shook my hand again, turned and walked down the mall corridor toward the parking structure.   He and his wife were back that next afternoon just like he said and we completed the sale with no further problems.  

 

I still think about that incident in my life because it was a turning point of sorts for me as well as him.   I had really not thought about what I told him until just that moment when I spoke to him and that realization came together just then.   I myself had just recovered from a year and a half struggle with a cancer.   It was the same prostate cancer that had killed both my father and grandfather.     

 

It was a profound experience and I was of course elated that I had cured my cancer but until that moment in the mall I had not put any value on just how much it meant to me.   The reality was that the experience of curing the cancer had made me rich beyond imagining.   That experience gave me the ability to cure any disease and that is priceless.

 

I would never have to fear that some symptom I was feeling was a fatal disease.   I would never suffer with a chronic disease.   I would never have some doctor tell me you are going to be on this medication for the rest of your life.   I would never have to face chemo, radiation or surgical procedures for cancer.   And I couldn’t care less if I had medical insurance coverage.

 

How could I say that?   Simply put, I learned to cure my own cancer by using traditional Naturopathic medical techniques.   These Natural cure techniques were demanding there was nothing easy about it.   It was as though I had taken on a second job.  I was busy from the time I got up in the morning till I went to bed at night for over a year and a half.   I was constantly either cleansing or detoxing or purging garbage out of my body nonstop.   But I found the strength to do it because of the successes I was seeing in my health.   And I learned that it is within the capabilities of anyone to do just what I did.   Out of that Naturopathic experience I gained the knowledge of what it takes to cure any disease, period.   And over the nearly twenty years since then I have applied those techniques over and over for myself and numerous other people.  

 

I know what you might be thinking, “you may think that what I said is not medically scientific and has not been proven to work”.   Well, I did not have time to wait for medical science.   And quite frankly their track record and knowledge of what it takes to cure any illness is weak.   They have not cured one disease in over half a century.  

 

Naturopathic Medicine on the other hand has an ancient and honorable track record of curing disease for over 8,000 years.   Obviously such a long usage of herbs, foods and cleansing techniques by common man justifies their use of the term “Traditional Naturopathic Medicine” as a scientific description and definition.

 

But regardless of how what I just said plays out in the confused world of medicine, money and politics I found my answer.Read more baby registry ideas on Yunnan Baiyao Store.   And that answer as I said a thorough article has made me health rich beyond measure, how about you? Visit Disability Support Services & Workers – Melbourne & Geelong for more info. Are you health rich beyond measure, I think you and your family deserve to be don’t you?

The Most Deficient Mineral in the American Diet is Not Calcium

Published by under Health

That is right the most common mineral deficient in the U.S. diet is magnesium not calcium.  Of the American population 95% are deficient in magnesium.  Of all the minerals our body needs magnesium is the most important, not calcium; without enough magnesium our bodies cannot even assimilate calcium.  Calcium that is not assimilated into your body can lead to arthritis, gallstones, kidney stones, artery plaque, brittle bones, and calcium spurs.  All of these have been known to disappear after taking extra magnesium supplements which assists in their absorption.

 

Some of the conditions where magnesium may be useful in prevention are:

Premature Aging, Arthritis, Aggressive Behavior, Alcoholism, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Heart Arrhythmia, Asthma, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, Brain Damage, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Cerebrovascular, Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue, Cluster Headaches, Cocaine-related Stroke, Constipation, Cramps, Diabetes. Fibromyalgia, Fluoride Toxicity, Head Injuries, Central Nervous System Injuries, Heart Disease, Heart Attack, Atherosclerosis, Cardiovascular Disease, HIV, AIDS, Hypertension, Kidney Stones, Magnesium Deficiency, Menopause, Migraine Headache, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Multiple Sclerosis, Nystagmus, Osteoporosis, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Pregnancy-related Problems, Eclampsia, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Psychiatric Disorders, Repetitive Strain Injury, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sickle Cell Disease, SIDS, Sports-related Problems, Stress, Stuttering, Tetanus, Tinnitis, Sound Sensitivity, TMJ, Toxic Shock, Violence

Are You Being Treated for a Disease That is a Just a Magnesium Deficiency.

Magnesium deficiencies have been found to occur in around 11% of hospitalized patients; it was found that 52% of patients in coronary care units, 42% of hypokalemic patients, 65% of ICU patients, and between 25%-39% of patients with diabetes have inadequate levels of magnesium. “The higher percentage of fat and sugar in the American diet requires greater emphasis on magnesium-rich Foods

 

Look For These Symptoms of a Magnesium Deficiency:

Arthritis, Insomnia, Fatigue, Body tension, Headaches, Heart-Disorders, Low Energy, High Blood Pressure, PMS, Backaches, Constipation, Kidney Stones, Osteoporosis, Irregular-Heartbeat, Anxiety, Muscle Cramps or Spasms, Irritability, Confusion, Poor digestion, Rapid heartbeat, Seizures, Can be synonymous with diabetes, Cause cardiac arrhythmia, Hypertension, Asthma, Chronic fatigue, Chronic pain syndrome, Formation of kidney stones.

 

Do you have trouble sleeping, do you wake up with muscle cramps and spasms, or feel too tense to sleep?  Your sleep problem may be as simple as a Magnesium deficiency.   Are you startled easily by noises, are you highly nervous, overly sensitive, on edge all the time, do lights seem too bright?  Do you suffer from muscle spasms, muscle cramps, muscle jerks, muscle tics, eye tics, do you have hiccups?  These are all caused by a deficiency of and can be solved by taking Magnesium. These are signs that your nervous system lacks Magnesium, which is essential for its proper functioning.

 

Do you suffer form low energy, chronic fatigue, do you become easily fatigued and weak; you may have a Magnesium deficiency.  Each cell in your body uses Magnesium as a key to energy production.  Magnesium can restore higher energy levels.

 

Yes.  Excess calcium in the diet can deplete magnesium from your body.  Milk is one of the worst culprits, the ratio of calcium to magnesium is eight parts calcium to one part magnesium; impossible for the body to utilize the calcium, excess calcium depletes the magnesium in the body even more.

 

After oxygen, water, and basic foods, Magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies.  Magnesium is responsible for activating over 300 different biochemical reactions necessary for our body to properly function.

 

Magnesium is essential in the regulation and use in your body of the following minerals calcium, potassium and sodium.   When you do not have enough magnesium in your body to regulate these minerals you may experience the following problems.   Low energy, poor bone formation, muscular difficulties (such as cramping, ticks, spasms etc.), poor activation of B vitamins (and all the problems associated with each of them), irregular heart beat, problems with your kidney, adrenals, brain. inability to physically relax.   This is how essential magnesium is to maintaining a normal functioning healthy body.

 

Your heart is a muscle that is constantly tensing and relaxing.  All your muscles including your heart use calcium to tense up and Magnesium to relax.  Without a proper balance of Magnesium your heart may suffer from an irregular beat or even go into a spasm called a heart attack.  What can Magnesium do for your heart?  It can lower blood pressure, stabilize irregular heart beat, enable the heart to pump a larger volume, relax constricted blood vessels, decrease the frequency of angina pains, keep blood platelets from clumping together, and increase beneficial HDL cholesterol.

 

Some allergies may be due to a need for magnesium for instance if you have an allergy to wheat, it may be relieved by adding more magnesium to your diet.

 

Do you suffer from PMS, too much calcium and not enough Magnesium can cause PMS.  Without enough Magnesium, you can feel as though you are living your life with the brakes on.  Add Magnesium to your diet and you will feel as though you accelerated your whole life.

 

Warning Note:
The majority of magnesium supplements are rock minerals and we cannot absorb minerals in that form it must be from food to be absorbed by our bodies. It is a basic law of nature that humans cannot absorb anything that has not been through a living plant first.

If your magnesium supplement says the following it is a rock mineral and you cannot absorb it.

Magnesium Carbonate A component of soil/ an antacid and laxative.
Magnesium Chloride Ammonium chloride processed with HCL/ fireproofs wood; cathartic
Magnesium Citrate carbonate processed with acids/ a cathartic
Magnesium Oxide Soil often concentrated by high heat/ an antacid, cement, and laxative

To get your magnesium from a supplement it must say this on the label.

Food Magnesium from Enzymatically processed plant material/ only used as Food.

Magnesium in Produce in the United States
Since the Industrial Revolution food processing has refined out a large portion of magnesium (and many other important minerals and vitamins).  Eating these processed foods like sugar, flour, white rice, causes magnesium loss via urination.  Drinking soft drinks that have caffeine and phosphoric acid in them and coffee increases the magnesium loss.  Other factors that can deplete your body’s levels of magnesium are mental stress, high perspiration, and medical drugs of all types, diabetes, chronic pain, diuretics, and a diet too high in calcium.

 

Poor U.S.A. Farming Methods
Farming methods in the U.S.A. have also done little to help you obtain enough magnesium in your diet. See the chart below from the statistics of the Department of Agriculture showing the drop in minerals like magnesium from our produce due to poor farming methods from 1919 onward.

Food Sources: (as I said above most of the magnesium has been stripped out of commercial produce by poor farming methods)
Apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, blackstrap molasses, brewer’s yeast, brown rice, cantaloupe, dulse, figs, garlic, grapefruit, green leafy vegetables, kelp, lemons, lima beans, millet, nuts, peaches, black-eyed peas, salmon, sesame seeds, soybeans, tofu, tortula yeast, watercress, wheat and whole grains.
