Avoid Taking Too Much Calcium-Linked to Heart Disease

Aug 25th, 2010 Posted in alternative medicine, health, men's health, Nutrition, osteoporosis, weight loss, women's health | Comments Off on Avoid Taking Too Much Calcium-Linked to Heart Disease

It has been determined by a large medical study that calcium supplements increase the risk of heart attack by about 30%. This may be associated to higher blood calcium levels from supplementation (mostly in forms of calcium carbonate and calcium citrate) compared to dietary calcium – which could lead to hardening of the arteries. Be sure you take in whole food vitamins and minerals, like VitaFruits and VitaVeggies from VitaTree Nutritionals. Whole food vitamins contain small amounts of vitamins, minerals and all the important phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables that allow for the best utilization and absorption of these nutrients by our body’s cells. They also help to keep the blood more alkaline, which reduces calcium buildup in the blood.

Tylenol Recall-Natural Alternatives

With the recent recall on Tylenol and Motrin products for children and infants, it makes you wonder how safe these products really are, whether for children or adults. I have cautioned my patients for years against using these products because they often mask and slow down the body’s natural healing process. For instance a fever is a healthy response to fighting an infection in the body. If the fever is suppressed with a medicine like Tylenol or Motrin, the body takes longer to fight off the offending bacteria or virus. There are also toxicity issues for the liver and kidneys with using these common over the counter pain killers. There are better, safer natural alternative. Use fish oils as a natural anti-inflammatory for pain and inflammation. Probiotics (good bacteria) are the best preventative medicine for infections as they ward off bad bacteria by crowding them out of the system.

Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy

I’m often asked by many women why, if there are so many wonderful, effective natural remedies for menopause, their doctors are not telling them. The truth is, most doctors don’t even know about them. If they do know, they are skeptical that the herbs have not been tested thoroughly. Again, another misconception as many of the herbs for menopause have been tested in human studies for years in Europe. Herbs such as Chasteberry and Black Cohosh have a long, positive track record. They can help with hot flashes, night sweats, irritability, insomnia, and vaginal dryness. See my formula VitaWomen’s Formula from VitaTree Nutritionals as a natural solution for menopause.

The Dairy Debate

May 19th, 2010 Posted in alternative medicine, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, health, men's health, Nutrition, osteoporosis, safe vitamins, Uncategorized, vitamins, women's health | Comments Off on The Dairy Debate

Many think that dairy products will help them to stave off osteoporosis because it contains a lot of calcium. Actually, dairy products do contain calcium, but it is not often well absorbed. Maintaining healthy bones has more to do with decreasing calcium loss from the body. The way to decrease the loss of calcium from our bones is to ensure we do not consume too many acidic forming foods and caffeine.
Coffee and soft drinks increase the calcium loss from our bodies. The best alkaline foods are raw fruits and vegetables. You can also take supplements like VitaFruits and VitaVeggies that have an alkalinizing effect on the body, keeping your calcium where it should be, in your bones!
