WHAT IS CHELATION THERAPY?

Although used since 1948, it is not as well known, but it is time to take a close look at this remarkable alternative to traditional drug and surgical interventions in the treatment of various clinical conditions, not the least of which is cardiovascular disease, but which also includes peripheral vascular disease, cerebrovascular diseases, heavy metal toxicities and diabetes, to name just a few.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOYS AND GIRLS

Researchers at the University of California-Berkley have discovered recently
that women experience more cellular oxidation than men do. Just being a
woman can cause you more oxidative damage than smoking, and oxidative damage
is a key contributor to premature aging.

Women are not just men in heels :-) They are different!

For natural antioxidant support, a woman's diet should be supplemented with
a quality anitoxidant formula with a variety of antioxidants for maximum
benefit. We recommend Super Antioxidant by Nature's Sunshine:

COSLEEPING - GOOD OR BAD?

Cosleeping is the act of having your infant in your bed with you during
sleep. There are many reasons why parents choose to cosleep. Some find that
it makes nighttime breast-feeding more convenient, or that it's easier to
soothe an infant back to sleep in the middle of the night.

Although the image of a baby and parent dozing off together is not an
uncommon one, the practice of cosleeping is controversial in the United
States. Cosleeping, or sharing a bed with an infant, claims the lives of 64
children under age 2 each year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission (CPSC). This organization cautions parents against sharing
beds with their babies.

SKIN pH AND THE ACID MANTLE
Acne, Eczema and Other Skin Problems

Our skin has an acid mantle with a pH between 4.2 and 5.6 depending on the
part of the body. This mantle is formed from a combination of oil secreted
by oil glands and perspiration that form a barrier that protects the skin
and renders it less vulnerable to damage by environmental factors like sun
and wind, while it inhibits the growth of microorganisms like bacteria and
fungus.

When this mantle is removed and the skin gets more alkaline, the skin is
more easily damaged and irritated with problems developing like eczema,
acne, and other skin problems.

The soaps most people use are highly alkaline and remove the acid mantle and
protective lipds, drying the skin and increasing risk of skin infections and
diseases. Sunshine Concentrate is a natural soap that helps maintain the
proper skin pH. Bathing in Sunshine Concentrate and using it as your
laundry soap can lessen skin irritation and reduce symptoms.

For years I had breakouts on my skin and when my wife switched to Sunshine
Concentrate for our laundry, it all stopped. I couldn't believe it was that
simple.

Keep in mind that eczema has a stress link also. It can flare up with added
stress, so learn to recognize and cope with stress. It will help you
prevent many health problems.

MALIGNANT MELANOMA ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPS?

From the Department of Dermatology, University at Buffalo School of Medicine
and Biomedical Sciences, NY.

Since 1960, the incidence of melanoma has increased dramatically in
Caucasians worldwide, and during the past decade has risen at a rate of 6% a
year in the USA. A hypothesis regarding this increased incidence suggests
that the prevalent use of antibacterial soaps that contain photosensitizing
compounds may be a risk factor for the development of cutaneous malignant
melanoma. Read more:


ANTIBACTERIAL SOAPS NO BETTER THAN PLAIN SOAP

A study sponsored by the National Institute of Nursing Research, a branch of
the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland:

Use of expensive and heavily advertised antibacterial soaps in the home
appears to be no better than regular soap in protecting individuals from
infections, researchers said here October 25 at the 40th annual meeting of
the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). Read the entire article

LAUGHING LINES
Laughter Is Good Medicine
**********************

Although this married couple enjoyed their new fishing boat together, it was
the husband who was behind the wheel operating the boat. Still, he was
concerned about what might happen in an emergency.

So one day out on the lake he said to his wife, "Honey, take the wheel...
Pretend that I am having a heart attack. You must get the boat safely to
shore and dock it."

So she drove the boat to shore and safely docked it. Later that evening,
the wife walked into the livingroom where her husband was reading a novel.
She sat down next to him, switched the TV channel, and said to him,

"Honey, go into the kitchen. Pretend I'm having a heart attack and set the
table, cook dinner and wash the dishes."
