For Women Only: How Confused Are YOU?

FWOIt is often necessary to make a decision on the basis of knowledge sufficient for action but insufficient to satisfy the intellect.-Immanuel Kant-

The area of women’s health is highly controversial. We’re told that premenstrual syndrome and hypoglycemia are all in our heads, that there’s no way to prevent osteoporosis except by taking estrogen, and that menopausal symptoms are as inevitable as death and taxes.

During my years in practice I have seen hundreds of women eliminate premenstrual syndrome, arthritic pain, menopausal symptoms, fatigue, lose unwanted pounds and the list goes on. And those who have followed me for a while know that I was a total mess when I started my journey over 30-years ago – so believe me – I’ve been there and done most of it, and understand, for real!melissa-harris-perry-quotation

Nutrition is the health foundation not for the future – but for TODAY! It’s specific, sensible, possible to adopt into any lifestyle, and most important, it works. Clinical experience has shown it works not only on symptoms, but on the cause of health problems, which should be the goal. Specific nutrition that takes into account genetic makeup can bring specific results. We can’t generalize about a subject that varies from person to person, because contrary to advertising campaigns – we’re NOT one-size-fits-all.

In my practice I act as YOUR ‘Health Detective’ who must be thorough and look for bits of information that might not appear to be important. Sometimes they’re hidden, sometimes overlooked. My own search for good health has led me to this new personalized approach to what I believe proper healthcare should be in every healthcare office. Let me explain:

* You have specific vitamin and mineral requirements.

General nutrition is old nutrition. You’re not the same as everyone else, and your needs vary greatly. Find out what foods you need to restore your body to balance and maintain optimal good health.

WHRunning* You need to be able to digest the foods you eat.

Without proper digestion there can’t be complete absorption or utilization.

Poor digestion leaves you deficient in necessary nutrients and can either lead to health problems or prevent elimination of current problems.

* You do not need to take a lot of calcium.

You want the calcium you take to get where it’s needed. Hydrochloric acid (HCI) is required for calcium utilization, and magnesium helps move calcium into bones and other cells. If you are low in any mineral, it’s more likely to be magnesium than calcium. Without enough HCI and magnesium, calcium is likely to cause more problems than it can solve.

* You need some good fats in your diet.

Essential fatty acids (EFAs), found in healthy organic oils, omega 3s, etc. which are needed by all cells and are necessary for good health. To keep slim, some women are eliminating all fats from their diet. However, a low-fat diet should include good fats. Premenstrual syndrome and menstrual cramps are only two indicators that you may lack EFAs.images (1)

Of these mentioned areas, the calcium issue is undoubtedly the most startling and controversial. Doctors who use little nutrition in their practices and rely on older information learned in medical school will argue that you need more calcium. Those who read nutritionally oriented medical journals will be familiar with the approach described here. Because the calcium controversy affects most women, I have chosen to share this information as an example of how and why I practice this new way.

My individually designed HealthTest(©) profile determines deficiencies (using over 300 questions you answer). This is only one of many questionnaires and/or laboratory work-ups to help you reach your health goals. Again, we’re NOT a one-size-fits all society. We are as unique as our fingerprints and only when we understand how our unique body functions can a proper food and supplements program be designed to fit your individual needs. It’s a complicated process which I have made very easy for my patients to understand.

GOOD HEALTH IS BALANCE

With the contemporary mandate to be thin, many women have turned to diets that emphasize protein, fats, or vegetables, often to the exclusion of other foods. These diets forbid certain essential nutrients and throws our bodies nutritionally off balance. Most significant, perhaps, is the fact that these diets never teach us how to eat for our particular body needs. One popular diet based on food combining and large quantities of fruit resulted in massive sugar consumption.

While fruit is certainly wholesome and contains natural sugars, women with premenstrual syndrome, hypoglycemia, and allergies found that this diet caused such problems as dizziness, fatigue, bloating, and sore breasts. A great many found that their initial weight loss reversed when they returned to eating normally.

DianasForWomenOnlyAvatarGood health is an absence of disease and a state of balance.

Balance is found in food programs that contain a variety of whole foods, not a preponderance of one kind, such as many available advertised ‘DIE…ts”(TM) out today!.

Perhaps you can see more clearly now that no general diet can ever hope to give you what you need, and that no expert can generalize about nutrition and give you the specifics you must have to effect a major change in health. It’s important to understand your individual differences and to design a 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 woman. Your health concerns should not be something you wait to deal with, we all need to start thinking preventive healthcare!

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

Who but an ex-311 pounder could have thought of all this?

30 Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure


“People with diabetes are 3 times more likely to have high blood pressure than people without diabetes.  A recent study found that about 71% of people with diabetes have high blood pressure.  Hypertension often goes unnoticed and leads to an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.”
   
American Diabetes Association

Why wouldn’t your allopathic doctor know this and check patient’s appropriately?

obesity1.     Watch Your Weight:

In overweight people, a 10% reduction in total body weight will sometimes normalize blood pressure.

2.      Get Physical:

Go for a brisk 30 minute walk 6 days a week.

3.      Blood Sugar:

Diabetics who control their blood sugar reduce hypertension risk.

4.      Reduce Stress:

Try yoga, meditation, massage or talking to a supportive positive friend.

cancersmoke5.      Butt Out:

All forms of tobacco dramatically raise blood pressure.

6.      Shake Off Salt:Salt 2

And sodium rich foods such as soy sauce and canned soups.  With the exception of salt substitutes or an easily found product in your grocery store with a balance of sodium/potassium chloride.

7.      Remember B-Vitamins:

After angioplasty surgery, 3 different B vitamins – folate, B6 and B12-cut in half the risk that arteries will re-close.

8.      Check Your Blood:

Have your cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood sugar checked regularly.  A comprehensive laboratory work-up is your best health insurance to maintain optimal good health.

9.      Fish for Omega 3-s:

Stress essential fatty-acid-containing foods or supplements of fish oil, flaxseed oil and borage oil.

10.    Mull Over A Multi:Vitamin-B6

A daily multi-vitamin ensures that you’re getting the basics.  Find out where you are nutrient deficient and concentrate on increasing the nutrients in your food and supplement program.

11.     Value Vitamin C:

The less vitamin C in the blood, the higher the blood pressure in hypertensive patients.  Take 2-3 times daily to your tolerance level.

12.     Fat Doesn’t Make You Fat – However:

Choose white fish and skinless chicken and turkey or remove before eating.  Alternate to cheese products that are not from dairy such as:  goat, oat, almond, veggie, soy or rice.   Forget the processed foods, if possible.

13.     Toss the Trans Fats:

These are a greater risk than even saturated fats.  (Margarine, baked goods, etc) Read the labels.food addict

14.     Embrace Vitamin E: Evidence suggests that vitamin E also magnifies vitamin C’s blood pressure-lowering effect.

15.     Reject Refined Foods:

Shun the salty, sugary, pre-made, preserved, fried and fatty

16.     Get Calcium:

Hypertensive patients seldom drink enough milk-and they are usually low on calcium.  Broccoli, spinach, tofu, goat milk and calcium supplements are alternatives.  Don’t take calcium alone.

17.     Compute Your Body Mass Index:

Multiply your weight in pounds by 703, then divide by your height in inches, then again divide by your height in inches.  Try to stay between 18.5 and 24.9.

demon drink18.     Swear Off Sodas:

Soft drinks can deplete potassium.

19.     Prefer Potassium:This crucial mineral is found in many fruits, vegetables, dairy foods, fish and supplements.

20.     Make It Magnesium:

It’s in leafy greens, legumes, whole grains and supplements.

21.     Air Out Antioxidants:

Beta-Carotene, Co-Enzyme Q10, and Selenium may help.

22.     Boost Bioflavonoids:

Available in fruits, vegetables, and supplements, bioflavonoids enhance vitamin C’s effects.

23.     Leave The Bar:Superdrink

1-2 drinks a day is OK-even stress-relieving-but more can cause health problems.

24.     Dash Your Diet:

DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) according to some experts is high in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy, and it’s low in fat.

25.     Think Zinc:

Zinc may reverse hypertension that has been caused by too much cadmium.

26.     Buy Into Bilberry:

This European blueberry contains anthocyanosides, which are powerful flavonoids.

27.     Grasp Grape Seed Extracts:

Research at the University of Alabama suggests grape seed extract can lower blood pressure significantly.

28.     Find Fiber:

Think veggies and whole grains.

29.     Jilt the Java:

Too much daily coffee-and even tea-can raise blood pressure.

30.     Now, Go To Bed:artworks-000042312635-3k7r7p-crop

High blood pressure patients deprived of sleep experience significant increases in blood pressure, especially during the evening.    

Nobody in their right mind will be able to read this and do it all, what I may suggest at once a week or perhaps once a month you bring one new health awareness issue into your mind and all those changes will certainly make your body (who relies on you) to make it happy.

I would suggest if you’re not working with a natural healthcare doctor that perhaps you ought to start by using my individualized HealthTest© medical (allopathic) doctors have no credentials in clinical nutrition – so perhaps this may be a first step for you or someone you love.  If you have questions do feel free to call me, and let’s talk about you!
