Natural Health Products Are not Drugs

When you walk into your local CHFA Member health food store, you can find all kinds of safe, effective and high-quality natural health products (NHPs) that you and 77 per cent of Canadians use for the maintenance of good health.

These NHPs could include vitamin C to reduce the duration and severity of the common cold. Or a probiotic to keep your immune system primed and ready to combat those winter bugs. Or vitamin D, since there are few natural dietary sources and because supplementing with vitamin D is almost universally recommended, particularly for those in greatest need like infants and the elderly.

HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT AND STAY YOUNG

I needed to catch your attention. I hope I have it and yes, I will discuss both.

We as a society are having more health issues, are fatter and on a constant cycle of dieting and relying on doctors to keep us well. We in turn have given away our power to others, such as the media, by relying on articles and specialists to tell us what is best and we follow like sheep. Has anyone decided to question what “they” say and ask “is it really in my best interest?”

DIETING…..

I really, really HATE this word. It is a multi billion dollar industry, that has spawned a host of problems, mostly for women. It is a word that kids know, people are perpetually on one and we buy so much product or pay fees to join so many clubs in order to get to that “ideal” weight. Read on..

Hormone Hell

Part 2

As I wrote earlier about the adrenal glands and how important it is to address these precious jewels, the stress component is primary to protecting them.

Vital to taking stress into consideration, the B complex vitamins are of utmost importance and should be taken at least 3 times daily.  There are other herbs such as Holy Basil, Ashwaganda, Rhodiola and Relora that will help to put out that fire that each one of us deals with on a daily basis.

Hormone Hell

Part 1

We, as women have a lot of endurance and the fact that we have the ability to be in tune with our bodies is a blessing.  The issue I want to bring forth is that we have hormones that often go out of kilter, whether it be PMS, perimenopuause or actual menopause. Read on..

How to Stay Healthy and Vibrant

In this day and age we are all concerned about Cancer and disease.  We are aging as a population and we hear about friends, loved ones and even ourselves getting the news that disease has taken one of us.  We hurt, we ache, we are told by the doctor there is nothing they can do, or we take a mass of prescription medications that seemingly make us feel better but could also make things worse.

Nutrition and Your Children

I found parenting to be the hardest job I ever had.   There are no manuals, no books that tell you exactly how your "model" works and what if you have more than one "model"?  I have three kids and each one is very different.  You parents will know what I am talking about.  Thankfully I managed to get them to adulthood, each and every one.

What are GMOs and why should we be worried.

GMO means Genetically Modified Organism and they are plants that have had their genetic material engineered by someone or altered. It is a technology where the genes and DNA have been manipulated of the plant. These are the building blocks of all living things. Genes from bacteria, viruses and other species have been added to plants such as soybeans, corn, canola, sugar beets and cotton.  The premise is they are hardier and more disease resistant.  About 80 percent of all GMO plants are herbicide tolerant.  The crops survive when specific herbicides are applied and only the weeds and plants are destroyed. Others have produce their own insecticide that kills insects that eat them. Hawaiian papaya, some zucchini and squashes are resistant to viruses. Read on..

Ice Cream - Yum or is it?

Summer is here and an ice cream cone should hit the spot about now.....Be careful of what you buy.  Many are more chemical pools than having to do with a contented cow. Sundaes, banana splits or that ice cream soda is more a mixture of antifreeze, oil paints, paint remover, leather cleaner, lice killer and other solvents.  Don't believe it? I'll explain. Read on..

Sunscreens. Are you covered?

Why am I writing about sunscreens? Especially since the media, your doctor and everyone else you know says you should use sunscreen, and also concedes that the higher numbers equal better protection. You head over to the pharmacy, the big box store or anyplace else that might sell sunscreens....especially if it is priced right. Read on..
