Dallas Health Helpers, Shaklee distributor in Dallas asks What’s in your wallet? Er, medicine cabinet!!

Many of us can open our cabinets in the bathroom and find a plethora of over-the-counter medications.  These may range from the simple aspirin to products for stomach ache to diarrhea to joint pain. There are cold remedies, ointments for fever blisters and acid reflux  remedies. And this is only the over-the-counter list.

How do we avoid having all these cures that aren’t really cures at all.  Generally, all the aforementioned products may simply attempt to have an affect on the symptoms, not a cure for the original condition.

Let’s look at some natural steps we can take to help avoid and possibly prevent the need for over the counter symptom soothers.

First of all, if you have a headache stop and think about the amount of water you have drank during the day and how good has your nutrition been for the day?  Enough water and good-for-you food can help prevent that headache from starting.  If you have a stomach situation going on, what have you eaten out of the ordinary?  Under what conditions? (Stress) Have you eaten good fruits and vegetables with good enzymes in them?  If not, you might want to add EZ Gest and Stomach Soothing Complex to your medicine cabinet, or more appropriately, to your vitamin regimen.  Throw in some daily OptiFlora for good Probiotics to maintain a healthy digestive system.

Got muscle soreness and joint pain?  Again, are you getting enough water?  Are you warming up before exercise?  Try Joint and Muscle Pain Creme, Joint Health Complex and Pain Relief Complex.  Used daily from your vitamin shelf, the latter two offer amazing results very quickly that will stay with you and prevent future occurrences.

Tired of eating toasted oat cereal that claims to help lower cholesterol? Add to your vitamin shelf Cholesterol Reduction Complex, which has the FDA approval to claim that it helps lower cholesterol. No may; it helps.

These are just a few things you can do to prevent lessen the need for over the counter drugs that may only mask symptoms and do nothing for the root cause.   Be aware that these suggestions are not meant to diagnose or treat illness.  Contact your physician if you are unsure.

Increase the size of your vitamin shelf in the kitchen and use that medicine cabinet for important things in your bathroom–like hair gel!!

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about long-term health.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, talks about long-term health.

 

March is National Nutrition Month.  Big Whoop!!  I am so glad the nation or who ever sets these months as official, brings the idea of being conscious of our nutrition to the forefront of our minds.

But I think that we should be concerned about our health on a daily, monthly and yearly basis, not just one month.  We should be looking at all aspects of health every day; concerns such as what we are eating, how much sleep we are getting, are we exercising frequently and are we getting enough water to drink.

There is a lot of maintenance to keeping our bodies functioning properly for as long as we are here.  That means time out of each day dedicated to our long-term health and well- being.  Many people take more time and money to keep their car, dog or even their home functioning properly.  The sad fact is that the home you really live in, your body, is often neglected or takes a back seat to other aspects of your life.

There is an old saying that if you don’t make time for your body now, it will take time from you later.  That may mean a shortened lifespan or more time in bed incapacitated.  Neither is a viable outcome in my opinion.

Even though it may not fit into your picture of the perfect day, spend some time doing maintenance on your body.  Here are four simple things to do:

  • Instead of having your car washed, do it yourself or go for a brisk walk.
  • Turn off the TV and read a book in order to get better sleep.
  • Keep a large glass or bottle of water handy so you can keep track of the ounces you drink.
  • Plan your food intake for the week so you get good nutrition and avoid “emergency” stops at not-so-healthy places.

Remember that your body is really where you live.  Take good care of it and it will serve you well.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, asks, “Is your pet overweight?” “Too??”

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas, Dallas Health Helpers, asks, “Is your pet overweight?”  “Too??”

Weight, weight. Don’t tell me!!

Do you know that 50% of all dogs in this country are overweight?  We are soothing and rewarding our pets with food. We also do this with our children and ourselves!!

 If you think that a 50% rate is bad, get a load of this: 67% of adults in America are overweight and half of those are obese. These are not good statistics.

Most of us have been on diet in our lives.  And most of us have been on several diets in our lifetimes.  The problem is that most diets don’t work.  What does work is a lifestyle change.

The good news is that we have a lifestyle plan that has been clinically proven to change the weight loss to come from fat, instead of the typical weight loss coming from muscles.  Weight loss from muscle is not a good thing.

Check out our weight reduction plan at http://CinchPlan.com/HealthHelpers . We offer at FIT205 Studio, weight management support meetings two times a week-Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 9 a.m.   Come and join us.  For more information call Tim at 214   770   9596.

Shaklee distributor in Dallas discusses Thanksgiving and weight gain.

Shaklee distributor in Dallas discusses Thanksgiving and weight gain.

Next month, someone you know will walk into the dining room just as they did last year.  The difference this year is that they will be carrying more weight than they did last year.  This is not good for their health–physically or mentally.

It is important that this yearly weight gain, however small in increments, is slowly deteriorating their health unless they are seriously under weight.  While a pound or two each year doesn’t seem like much, over time it can move one from overweight to obesity.

We all should find a weight loss program that works to maintain muscle mass, causes fat loss and builds our health to a higher standard.  One such plan is the Cinch Inch Loss Plan from Shaklee.  With this plan, one can get through the holidays maintaining current weight levels or even reducing body fat.

Think of someone you know who is serious about changing the direction that the numbers on the scale are going year after year.  Send them a link to this site and encourage them to check out the Cinch Plan.  You will both feel better.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas gives lessons in speed eating.

Shaklee Distributor in Dallas gives lessons in speed eating.
Many of us are living a fast-paced lifestyle. We do most every thing in a hurry, just to get to the next item on our agenda and then race through that as well.
One harmful affect of living in the fast lane is that our pace generally doesn’t slow down for our meals. We grab something quick, gobble it down and move on. This is not beneficial for our digestive system and eventually for our waist line.
When we don’t get out of that “fight or flight” mode for lunch or even dinner, our bodies do not handle food the way they should. Because we are stressed, our “food handling processes” are put on the back burner and are not digesting our food properly. It sits in our stomach longer than it should and we begin to experience heartburn and other symptoms of mal-absorption.

Another problem is that when eating fast, we eat more. Our bodies do not signal our brains that we have had enough until it is too late.
Some things to change are:
1. Do NOT eat in the car.

2. Set a timer and take 20 minutes to eat.

3. Put your fork down between each bite.

4. Sip water between each bite.

5. Eat at a table or designated place.

6. Get up from the table halfway into your meal and then return to it in a few minutes.
