Good Sex Requires Proper Nutrition!

 FOR MEN (And those who care about them)

Good Sex 1A satisfying sex life requires a healthy body, which depends on sound nutrition, exercise, and sufficient rest.  For the most part, sexual function is controlled by the endocrine glands, which secrete specific hormones.  In order to function properly and produce sufficient hormones, these glands have certain nutritional needs.

The pituitary gland has both direct and indirect effects on sexual and reproductive functions.  Its hormones need the B-complex vitamins, pantothenic acid, niacin, vitamin E and zinc.  Any deficiency of the pituitary causes underdeveloped sex organs, and impotence in men.

The adrenal glands, produce a small but significant amount of sex hormones.  These glands need vitamin A, the B vitamins, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-1, niacin, vitamin C and E, and the unsaturated fatty acids.  Adrenal exhaustion can result in little strength or desire for sex.  An inadequately supplied thyroid can also cause a lack of desire or strength for sex.  Iodine, the V vitamins, vitamin B-1, and vitamin E are essential for the production of its hormone, thyroxine.

Good sex 2The male sex gland, the testes, are composed of 2 glands; one secretes testosterone and the other produces sperm.  (Testosterone increased sexual desire in both sexes.)  Vitamins A, C, E, and folic acid work with testosterone to produce sperm and other male characteristics such as a deep voice and facial hair.  The nutrient content of sperm includes calcium, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, and vitamin B-12, C, and inositol.  A deficiency of vitamin E causes a degeneration of the testicles; too-low levels of zinc result in immovable, useless and infertile sperm.  In male laboratory animals, a manganese deficiency causes loss of sex drive, lack of semen, and degeneration of the seminal tubules.  Testosterone levels proportionately decrease with the amount of marijuana smoked.

The sex hormones are made from cholesterol.  Cholesterol-containing foods need not be limited as long as the body has sufficient amounts of the other nutrients needed to properly metabolize the cholesterol.  These include wthe vitamins B-complex, C, and E, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and lecithin.  Refined and processed foods are greatly lacking in these nutrients; in their absence cholesterol is unable to enter wthe cells and remains in the blood, eventually helping to form plaques.

Good sex 3

Impotence, the male’s inability to achieve erection of the penis has been related to a magnesium or a combined zinc and vitamin B-6 deficiency.  Other factors associated with impotence are emotional problems, physical illness such as diabetes, and the intake of drugs and alcohol.  Although levels of testosterone decrease with age, this doesn’t cause erectile impotence because the penis requires only minimal amounts of the hormone for successful operation.

Sterility can occur in the male and is often the result of a zinc deficiency.  Studies have shown that the higher the blood histamine level is in men, the quicker the ejaculation.  Men too low in histamine can’t achieve ejaculate prematurely.

Good sex 5

Sexual desire and performance can be adversely affected by numerous things including drugs, alcohol, cigarette smoking, caffeine, some common medicines such as certain tranquilizers, anti-hypertensives, and anticholinergics.

Perhaps you can see more clearly now that no general diet. can ever hope to give you what you need and no expert can generalize about nutrition and give you the specifics you must have to effect a major change in health, and I’ve only discussed one issue today.  It’s important to understand that your individual differences required the correct and specific nutritional program that will take into consideration:

            *   your age

            *   genetic individuality

            *   any existing health problems,   and

*   the nutritional needs unique to YOU, as a man

 

Sex 6To Conclude:

Nutrient deficiencies are an epidemic in our society and it’s vital to find out where you stand so that you can become nutrient sufficient.  To this end, in a few weeks you will have the opportunity of checking out my “heart project” it’s called; Dr. Henry’s HealthTest© .  It’s helped thousands of people over the years, recently, completely updated, including its copywrite and for the first time I’m offering it to the general public so that we can all –

STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!(TM)  Each test is individually designed based on the answers you give. Not only that, but if you’re low or very-low in any nutrient you will receive a complete explanation and a list of foods in that particular category.  If that’s not enough – I will design the right food program for you, again, based on your answers and you won’t have to count calories, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, etc.  I’ve done all the work for you .and so much more.Good sex4

Alcohol May Lower Sperm Quality! |


Alcohol intake is linked to lower sperm quality, according to a cross-sectional study of young Danish men published in BMJ Open. Adverse effects on semen can be seen at levels as low as 5 drinks per week, although the trend is more pronounced among men who drink more than 25 units per week, the researchers report. However, at least one expert remains unconvinced of the association.

10 Steps to Loving Your Size & Heart

In the United States, heart disease affects about 9 million adults, killing 1 every 37 seconds. 

Heart attackBut the good news – which; Dr. Philip Ades, author of the new book Eating for a Healthy Heart has made it his mission to spread the news that heart-disease is mostly preventable.  Research shows that up ti 90 percent of heart disease can be prevented by changing one’s diet, exercising more, maintaining a healthy weight and not smoking.  I’ve been preaching this for 30 years and I applaud Dr. Ades.

To reduce your risk why not make a decision to follow these 10 simple steps:

Step #1: Know your numbers:

Note: I do not read the laboratory ranges as these are for the most part not well people.  We are a pretty sick society and in functional/integrated healthcare we look for the optimal ranges so that the patient is really getting well.  I will note my acceptable range beside the clinical ranges.

High blood cholesterol is linked with about 0ne-third of heart disease cases worldwide, according to data from the United Nations.  Your blood cholesterol (lipid profile) is made up of several readings: high density cholesterol (HDL), low-density cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides (TG).  LDL cholesterol and triglycerides are often referred to as “bad” cholesterol; high levels (greater than 160 mg/dL(120) and 200 mg/dL (180),  respectively) are considered  risk factors for developing heart disease.

On the other hand, “good” HDL protects against cardiovascular disease.  (A healthy HDL target is 60 mg/dL(40) or higher.)  But an undesirable  lipid profile doesn’t mean that developing heart disease is inevitable.  Research shows that changing your diet for the better (HealthTest©) can help lower “bad” LDL and TG levels, as well as increase “good” HDL cholesterol, if they’re out of healthy ranges.  Ask your doctor about running a VAP or comprehensive Lipid Profile.

Step #2: Calculate your risk:

Having multiple factors for heart disease increases your risk exponentially.  For example, if you
smoke, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, any one of these factors doubles your likelihood of developing heart disease in the next 6-years.  But having all 3 increases your chance eightfold.  The good news – just treating any one of these risk factors effectively – you quit smoking or bring your cholesterol into a healthy range, halves your likelihood of developing heart disease (i.e., you’ll have 4 times, rather than 8 tines, the risk of someone who doesn’t have any of these risk factors).

Step #3: Lose weight if you need to:Fitness Time

Losing as little as 5 to 10 percent of your body weight – about 8 to 15 pounds if you start at 150, will result in better blood pressure, lower risk for diabetes and improved cholesterol levels, research suggests.  Are you toting around too many pounds? There are 2 ways to find out.  First, calculate your body mass index (BMI).  If you don’t know how to do this, let me know and I’ll send you the information free of course: inquiries@drhenry.com.
A normal BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.  A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is overweight, and 30 and above is considered obese.  Some complain that if you’re muscular or “large-boned,” you may get a BMI that suggests you’re overweight when you’re really not.  I this is you, strip down to your underwear and stand sideways in front of a full-length mirror.  If your abdomen droops or sticks out, the high BMI is correct.  If it’s flat and firm, your BMI may, indeed, be incorrect.

Step #4: Slash your intake of saturated fat:

Butter, sour cream, Mayo.  These foods, as well as fatty cuts of meats, are high in the saturated fats that elevate “bad” LDL cholesterol, leading to plaque build-up in arteries.  Limit saturated fats to 5 percent or less of your total calories (divide your weight by 12 to get the daily total limit in grams).  For example, try replacing butter with vegetable-based oils, particularly olive and canola oil, both of which contain good amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, and by swapping in lean poultry, fish and beans for higher-fat m eats.   Don’t get discouraged, at the end of this article I will make your life much easier – my customized HealthTest©) will STOP, The Food & Vitamin Guessing Game!

Step #5: Get rid of the junk food: 

food addictMany packaged snacks, crackers, bakery goods and some margarines contain artificial trans fats (a.k.a. hydrogenated oils), which increase “bad” LDL even more than saturated fats, according to recent research by Walter Willett, M.D., at the Harvard School of Public Health.

In a 2003 interview with Eating Well, Willett blamed trans fats for millions of unnecessary premature deaths from heart disease.  Please, read labels carefully: if a package claims “zero trans fats,” the amount per serving may be less than 0.5 g and could have been rounded down to zero.  The only way to be sure you’re getting a product without trans fats is to avoid products that include “hydrogenated oils” Better yet, stock up on nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits and nuts.

Step #6: Fill up on fiber:

Various studies link a high-fiber diet with a lower risk of heart disease.  In a Harvard study of female health professionals, people who ate a high-fiber diet had a 40 percent lower risk of heart disease than those who ate a low-fiber diet.WholeGrains_sprouted

Aim to include plenty of foods that are rich in soluble fiber, which, studies show, can help lower “bad” LDL.  Soluble fiber binds bile acid, a key component in fat digestion that our bodies make from cholesterol.  We can’t digest fiber, so when bile acids are bound to it, they get ushered out of the body as waste.  This causes the body to convert more cholesterol into bile acids, which ultimately has the effect of lowering circulating cholesterol levels.  Foods high in soluble fiber include oatmeal, barley, beans, okra and eggplant, and citrus fruit, such as oranges.

Step #7:   Replace refined grains with whole grains:

Eating too many refined carbohydrates (e.g., white bread, pastries, white pasta) fuels the body’s ability to make triglycerides.  What’s more, processed grains are quickly converted to glucose, which raises blood glucose levels and may predispose one to developing type 2 diabetes, and a  risk factor for developing heart disease.  Choose whole grains, such as brown rice, wheat berries, and quinoa and whole-wheat pasta, which contains more fiber (which slows down the conversion of starches to glucose) and healthful fats than processed grains.

Baked SalmonStep #8:   Go fish:

Consuming two or more servings of fish per week is associated with a 30 percent lower risk of developing coronary heart disease over the long term, studies show.  Fish contains omega-3 fats, which lower levels of triglycerides in the blood that may contribute to blood clotting.  Omega-3s also lower blood pressure slightly and can help prevent irregular heart rhythms.  (Flaxseed oil, canola oil and walnuts also contain omega-3 fats.)


Step #9:   Get nuts:

Research suggests that people who eat nuts – walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, pine nuts and peanuts (which actually are legumes) – 2 to 4 days or more per week have a lower incidence of heart disease than people who eat them less.  All nuts contain good amounts of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and low levels of saturated fats.

Step #10:   Enjoy alcohol in moderation:

RESVERATROLScientific literature indicates that people who drink moderately are less likely to have heart disease than those who abstain.  Alcohol appears to raise “good” HDL cholesterol.  Wine, in particular, “thins” the blood (making it less prone to clotting) and also contains antioxidants that prevent your arteries from taking up LDL cholesterol, a process that can lead to plaque build-up.  Remember, 1 drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of liquor.

Bottom Line:

After reading all this, you’re probably saying – this is too confusing, how to I do this or that.  How do I figure out and understand these numbers.  Ok, as an ex-311 pounder, believe me when I say, I understand – been there, done that and you can’t do this successfully on your own, unfortunately.  But, I have good news for you, wherever you live, it’s called Dr. Henry’s HealthTest©) which will using my personalized extensive questionnaire, allow me to find out, using body-language (how are you now feeling), to determine your nutrient deficiencies.  Are you normal, low or very-low.  Any that are low or very-low I will give you detailed information on what that means, and what foods you may want to incorporate into your new food program.  I will also, determined by your answers design 2 food programs just for you. No counting calories, carbohydrates, fats, fiber, etc., I’ve done all the hard work for you, all you have to do is EAT!  I sure wish there was someone to do this for me in my suffering days.

Unfortunately, it’s not interactive, as yet, but if you email me your desire to order the HealthTest,  I will send it via pdf and you can either scan it or fax back to me and I’ll get you up and running.  I will also give you supplement information to help you get balanced nutritionally with pharmaceutical grade nutrients that you need, no more guessing.

Alcohol and MS?  

MSALchDrinking alcohol appears to have a protective effect on the risk of developing Multiple Sclerosis.

(MS),Two studies, published in JAMA Neurology were conducted by a group led by Anna Karin Hedstrom, MD, from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, who conclude that their findings give no support to advising patients with NMS to completely refrain from alcohol consumption.

“We didn’t look at patients who already had MS, so I can’t make firm recommendations on this, but previous research has shown an anti-inflammatory effect of moderate alcohol intake,” Dr. Hedstrom said.  “I would say that if an MS patient wants to drink alcohol that is absolutely fine.”

She added: “MS patients often ask what their children can do to reduce their risk of developing their disease.  Whilst we wouldn’t recommend them drinking large quantities of alcohol because of other negative consequences, we can probably say that alcohol in moderation will not increase risk and may reduce it somewhat.  So I wouldn’t advise people to start drinking alcohol specifically to reduce their risk of developing MS, but I would say that you don’t need to avoid alcohol or stop drinking alcohol.”

Dose-Dependent Association

Three previous small studies looking at the association of alcohol and MS have had inconclusive results, Dr. Hedstrom noted.  “The current case-control studies are the largest to look at this association.  We wanted to study this as experimental studies and clinical observations have suggested that alcohol has an effect on the immune system and may have anti-inflammatory actions mediated by induction of interleukin-10.   As MS is an inflammatory condition, we thought alcohol may have a protective effect,” she explained.MSPub

The 2 current studies were the Epidemiological Investigation of Multiple Sclerosis (EIMS), which included 745 patients with NS (cases) and 1761 controls recruited between 2005 and 2011, and the Genes and Environment in Multiple Sclerosis (GEMS) study, with 5874 cases and 5246 controls recruited between 2009 and 2011.

Patients with MS were found from participatingcenters and from MS registries, and controls were randomly selected from the national population register, matched by age, sex, and residential area at the time of disease onset.

The 2 studies were set up to examine the effect of many different environmental and genetic factors on the development of MS.  Previous findings from these studies on the effect of smoking have already been published, showing that smoking appears to increase the risk of developing MS, especially in those who also have genetic risk factors for MS. Dr. Hedstrom reported.

The current results showed a dose-dependent inverse association between alcohol consumption and risk of developing MS that was statistically significant in both sexes.

“In the current analyses, if we compare drinkers with nondrinkers there is a small increase in risk of developing MS in the nondrinkers, but there was a clear dose response, and those with the highest alcohol consumption had reduction in risk of developing MS of about 50%.  This was similar in both studies.  We also saw a reduction in risk in the low and moderate drinkers but this was not so pronounced,” Dr. Hedstrom said.

 Alcohol Intake vs Never Drinkers

The protective effect of alcohol was greater in smokers.  “We saw quite a dramatic effect in smokers.  Alcohol seems to take away some, but not all, of the negative effects of smoking on the risk of MS,” Dr. Hedstrom commented.

Superdrink“I do believe this is a real effect that we are seeing,” she added. “There were similar results in both studies, and we took many different confounding factors into account.  The greatest limitation with studies like this is that individuals are asked to recall their alcohol intake from several years previously.  While this is obviously difficult to estimate completely accurately, people can generally remember whether they were light, moderate, or heavy drinkers as there were quite large differences between the 3 groups.”

For these studies, low consumption was defined as less than 50 g/wk for women and 100 g/wk for men; moderate consumption was 50 to 112 g/wk for women and 100 to 168 g/wk for m en; and high consumption was more than 112 g/wk for women and 168 g/wk for men.  Dr. Hedstrom estimated that a glass of wine contains about 12 g of alcohol.

In the paper the researchers point out that alcohol may also have a protective effect on developing cardiovascular disease and possibly also some other autoimmune conditions, such as hypothyroidism, systemic lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Well folks, in my quest to keep you informed perhaps this doesn’t affect you today, but you could know smeone who needs this information, so share, share, share this and all my blogs and online radio shows.  We can’t depend on drugs to heal anyone – they only cover up symptoms, but with knowledge and the right natural help – all is possible – just look at me if you need a small sampling, ha.

Don’t take your health for granted – it’s what’s going on in your cells that let’s you know where you really are when it comes to –

DO YOU HAVE LEAKY GUT?

Doctors are only recently discovering the causes and effects of leaky gut syndrome.Leaky

 “Physicians don’t know enough about the gut, which is our biggest immune system organ,” says Donald kirby, gastroenterologist and director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Human Nutrition.

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Your small intestine is responsible for screening toxins from your body.  It’s the largest organ in your body, representing two-thirds of the immune system and it’s the first line of defense in keeping you well.

Think of it as you would a coffee filter.  If you pour dirty water through a fresh, undamaged filter, the fine weave would capture most of the tiny particles and all of the larger ones.

leaky3If you were to then take an ice pick and poke holes in the filter, then pour that same dirty water through again – the result would be much different.  This time, most of the tiny pieces and even a portion of the larger pieces would pass through.

Your small intestine is the “filter” of the body.  Inflammation caused by drug interactions, poor diet and chronic stress (dis-stress) acts like an ice pick – poking holes in the intestinal lining.

Once these holes exist in your intestine, your gut literally leaksundigested food particles, bacteria, toxins and parasites into your blood, harmful substances that were once captured and flushed out of your body as waste.

Understandably, your body doesn’t respond well to these items floating around in your bloodstream.  Your body creates an immune response to attack – which results in more inflammation.

Scientists believe this process causes a chain reaction that leads to many other problems throughout the body.  They’re often unable to diagnose leaky gut syndrome specifically and are usually forced to work backward to diagnosis.

Author Leo Gallard, M.D. says leaky gut is often undiagnosed but is vitally important to overall health because many – seemingly unrelated – conditions are either caused by or worsened by this mystery illness.

Leaky Gut Syndrome Has Been Linked To:

   *       Arthritis

   *       Chronic fatigue

   *       Depression, anxiety or other mental disorders

   *       Allergies, hives, acne, eczema or psoriasis

   *       Inflammatory bowel disease

   *       Irritable bowel syndrome

   *       Fibromyalgia

Healing Leaky Gut:

   *       Stop all consumption of alcohol

   *       Avoid using pain relievers such as naproxen, aspirin or ibuprofen

   *       Talk to your doctor about testing for leaky gut syndrome

   *       Avoid inflammatory foods that are high in acid, fat or sugar

   *       Increase your fiber consumption

If you simply don’t feel “right” but your doctor is unable to find the root cause of your discomfort, you may want to talk to him/her about the possibility of leaky gut syndrome.  Unexplained chronic pain, fatigue, feelings of depression, bowel distress or a skin condition that isn’t responding to treatment could point to this often overlooked condition.

You may want to check out my online radio show on the “Gut” – worth your time to listen to this and many others.  My shows are educational, often controversial, but always the truth – as I see it!

Never take your health for granted, it’s the only body you have so may I suggest that YOU – Plan for Tomorrow’s Good Health – TODAY!

MENTAL ILLNESS AND KIDS:

mental-illnessThe first comprehensive examination of childhood mental health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that mental illness is increasing in children younger than 18 years.

“A total of 13% to 20% of children living in the United States experience a mental disorder in a given year,” according to CDC investigators, who published the findings May 16 in a supplement of the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

The most prevalent of parent-reported current diagnoses among children aged 3 to 17 years was attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD at 6.8%.  Depending on the surveillance system used, ADHD prevalence ranged from 7.6% to 8.9% in 2007 to approximately 8.5% in 2010 and 2011.

 ADHD prevalence was highest among white and black non-Hispanic children.

 Behavioral or conduct disorders, at 3.5%, were the next most common parent-reported current diagnosis in children in the same age group, followed by anxiety, at 3%; depression, at 2.1% and autism spectrum disorder (ASD)  at 1.1%.

 The prevalence of behavioral and conduct disorders was twice as high among boys as among girls.physical-or-mental-illness

 Some 0.2% of children between 6 and 17 years of age had a parent-reported current diagnosis of Tourette syndrome.

In contrast to other childhood mental disorders, recent survey findings indicate that the prevalence of substance use disorders among adolescents between 17 and 17 years of age has decreased over time, to 6.9% in 2011, down from 5.9% in 2002.  Illicit drug use was also higher in 2002 than in 2011.

On the basis of self-reported data, 8.3% of adolescents between 12 and 17 years of age reported 14 or more unhealthy days in the past month.  This affected nearly 2 million US adolescents.

Mental boy Finally, suicide was the second leading cause of death among children between 12 and 17 years of age in 2010.

 Estimates also indicate that the prevalence of having seriously considered attempting suicide among students was 15.8% nationwide.  Some 12.8% of students had made a plan about how they would attempt suicide, and 7.8% of students had attempted suicide 1 or more times during the year prior to a 2011 national survey.

“Surveillance is a critical first step in the public health approach to mental health among children,” MMWR authors write.  “As intervention and prevention strategies are implemented, surveillance is needed to continually monitor progress in reducing the impact of mental disorders and improving mental health.”

My personal comments:

It’s amazing when we increase the strength of the immune system by eating whole foods rather than junk – that means feeding our children properly – you will see miraculous changes, that is if you’re really serious.  This ought to be a family affair.

Never eat the following, if you intend to exhibit optimal good health:

1.      Processed foods – such as bacon, sausage, packaged meats, etc.  They contain sodium nitrate and rodents hair – really!  And yes, the USDA is well aware of this situation.

2.      Artificial sweeteners – affect your brain, cancer, diabetes, etc.  This means staying away from all the so-called diet foods and drinks.  Stevia is what I use and there are coconut sugar.  Fructose – affects your liver, diabetes, cancer and others.

3.      Margarine – affects heart, diabetes, cancer and others.  Use only real (organic) butter, and/or what I use is 100% Spanish Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil on anything uncooked. Many are still cooking with olive oil and when it gets too hot, the molecules break down and that’s not good.  I use Organic Coconut Oil.Child-Mental

4.      Statin drugs – which cause cancer.  Know that when cholesterol goes below 200 – it’s inviting cancer and really lowers testosterone levels.

5.      Shell fish – like lobster, shrimp, crab, etc., it’s like you are eating cockroaches.  I guess that’s why if you read your bible you know that in Leviticus, we’re told not to eat these foods and others, and today we know that they have many parasites. Japan has put so much radioactivity into the ocean that everything that comes out of it has health issues. Canned tuna – full of mercury.  The only fish you ought to consume is wild.  Wild organic tuna and other wild fish are fine and important to your overall health needs.

6.      GMO foods – they are poison, without doubt.  The sprays that Monsanto now controls and every farmer (other than organic) have changed the DNA in crops.  These poisons are fed to the animals, the water is poisoned, and it’s a big mess.

If you’re interested in learning more about GMO – take the time to check out my online radio show entitled: “The GMO Disaster Warning” you will learn more than you probably want to know which is the case with all of my shows which are educational, often controversial, but always the truth, as I see it daily.

And let me not warn all parents – ADD and ADHD has become a national epidemic because we’re feeding and allowing our kids to eat poison daily.  So – don’t say you didn’t know this or that.  If you want to know what’s what – keep reading and listening to my shows – they are FREE – and the best gift I share with the world because of my difficult journey.

punished-child7.      Aluminum salts – this and fluoride is found in our all of our crops which affects the brain, lowers IQ in kids and let’s not forget the newest epidemic – Alzheimers’s Disease.

8.      High Fat dairy products – animals are fed corn based products containing genetically modified (GMO), give antibiotics, hormones, etc.  Use only organic dairy products.

9.      Coffee products – a moderate amount is fine, but several each day will have deleterious affects to your system.  Instead use cereal coffee, green tea extract tea (organic).

10.     Alcohol – increased risks of pancreatic cancer, liver, kidney and osteoporosis, etc.  However, in small amounts you should have no issues, unless you’re susceptible (allergies) to the ingredients.

I know I’ve ruined some of your day with this important information, but if you don’t change you’re ways you can’t expect to stay well and when something hits you, don’t think running to the doctor for a drug is the answer.  Did you know that 100,000 people die each year from taking prescription drugs?Mother-Child

So, get smart and start implementing healthy lifestyle living in your homes as soon as today.  Your children are our future and due to the fact that they probably didn’t have a start in life with parents who were no doubt nutrient deficient, then given processed, junk food and water, how would you expect them to have developed a strong immune system?  Not possible – it’s only time when you will become aware of the fact that our children will be dying earlier then their parents and that, to me, is a very sobering thought and reality!

So, as I like to leave you each day we meet – isn’t it time for your to start –

Planning for Tomorrow’s Good Health – TODAY!
