A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hi Everyone,

With climate changes often comes assaults on our immune system. Be sure and
strengthen your immune system especially during the holiday times when we
tend to eat things we shouldn't. A great product for that purpose is
Seasonal Defense mentioned below.

We have also included a link that you can follow to find turkey-less recipes
if you are so inclined. Also a great way to adopt a turkey too.

Thanks for your continued sharing of our ezines and websites. Without your
assistance we wouldn't be where we are today.

Until next time,

Randal

LICORICE ROOT

"An herb that feeds the adrenal glands and helps the body adapt is called an
"adaptogen." Adaptogen herbs offer the materials needed to make the hormones
and secretions so crucial to balance. Licorice Root is a long-favored
adaptogen herb for building strength. Licorice's nature and properties so
closely match the needs of the gland's hormone composition that hormones are
then produced by the body quickly and with little effort."

ENERGY DECLINE

Oxidative damage to the DNA of the mitochondria is the primary cause of
energy decline. Supplementing with CoQ10 can protect cells from oxidative
stress thereby enhancing energy production. (Biochim Biophys Acta,
1459(2-3):397-404,2000)

CoQ10 has a lot of benefits for the body. As we age our synthesis of
Coenzyme Q10 declines so that a deficiency can develop. Read more and/or
purchase it here: "/index.php?controller=cms&id_cms=91" CoQ10


Siberian Ginseng contains eleuthrerosides which are plant glycosides that
appear to act on the adrenal glands to help prevent adrenal hypertrophy and
excess corticosteroid production in response to stress. Siberian ginseng
has been used to increase energy and stamina. (Focus on Allergy Research,
January 1998) Energ-V is a formula for energy and stamina and includes
Siberian Ginseng along with other energy-producing herbs. Read more and/or

A PARENT'S GUIDE TO FITNESS FOR KIDS WHO HATE SPORTS

Eight-year-old Bradley is a terror on the ice - he lives for hockey practice
and spends much of his free time at home slapping a puck around in the
driveway. But Bradley's 10-year-old brother, Michael, has no interest in
hockey or in any organized sports. He would rather be in his room with a
book or riding his bike around the park than playing hockey or basketball
with his friends.

The boys' parents worry about Michael's lack of interest in team sports, but
do they really have anything to be concerned about? Read this article to
find out how you can help to promote fitness in a child who dislikes team
sports.

Why Does My Child Hate Sports? If your child isn't interested in team
sports, you should attempt to get to the root of the issue rather than force
her to join a team. Kids may not want to participate in sports for many
reasons - some of them physical, others emotional.

Children who are physically self-conscious or who feel different from their
peers may feel uncomfortable about participating in team activities. Whether
this difference is real or imagined, it may lead to self-esteem and body
image problems.

Fear of failure or public embarrassment - as well as fear of letting their
parents down - can also make some children reluctant to play team sports.

HOW CLEANSING HELPS WITH WEIGHT LOSS

Virtually all nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, enter the body
through small intestinal villi located on the interior wall of the
intestines. They act as a filtering system extracting nourishment from the
food we eat and filtering out impurities.

As with any filter the villi can become clogged with digestive byproducts,
and when this happens their surface area is reduced and they cannot absorb
nutrients as effectively.

We continue to eat but less and less of the nutrients are getting into our
system and so we feel hungry and continue to consume more food that is no
longer nourishing us.

Cleansing is important for many other reasons. Read more about cleansing
and various cleanses that may fit your lifestyle here:

TURKEY-FREE THANKSGIVING MENU/RECIPES

Great menu and recipes on site for your vegetarian Thanksgiving plans. Make
your own alternatives to turkey for Thanksgiving or find a list of items
available in stores for purchase:


ADOPT A TURKEY

Farm Sanctuary's Adopt-A-Turkey Project offers two ways for people to adopt
turkeys this Thanksgiving holiday:

1. Sponsor "adopt" a turkey who lives at Farm Sanctuary's New York or
California shelters for farm animals. For a one-time $15 adoption fee,
adopters receive a color photograph of their turkey, an adoption certificate
and a year's subscription to Farm Sanctuary's quarterly newsletter. The
adoption fee provides funds for feed, bedding and veterinary care for the
turkeys. Please call 1-888-SPONSOR or click here to adopt a turkey who lives
at Farm Sanctuary.

2. Home adopt and provide a safe, permanent, and loving home for two or
more turkeys. Home adopters must be vegetarian or vegan, and committed to
providing lifelong care for their turkey friends. Individuals interested in
home adoptions must complete an adoption application. Approved adopters will
be placed on a schedule to have their turkey companions personally delivered
by Farm Sanctuary staff on the Turkey Express. Get more info here:

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

As the manager of our hospital's softball team, I was responsible for
returning equipment to the proper owners at the end of the season.

When I walked into the surgery department carrying a bat that belonged to
one of the surgeons, I passed several patients and their families in a
waiting area.

I heard one man say to his wife, "Look, honey, here comes your
anesthesiologist."
