Colon health is a major concern for people today. The colon is designed to eliminate waste and toxins from the body, like those found in many of today's processed foods. Unfortunately, processed foods don't supply your body with the essential enzymes and fiber it needs to eliminate these toxins. This can result in a buildup of toxic material in your colon, which can lead to poisoning or disease. To help protect your body from common colon toxins that deplete and degrade your health, Nature's Sunshine's CleanStart? cleansing and detoxifying program provides the most complete and balanced herbal cleanse available.

Restore Strength and Vigor with a Good Night's Sleep

There is evidence that melatonin use may play a role in modulating pituitary secretion and production of growth hormones, according to the European Journal of Endocrinology.

Melatonin is a naturally-occurring hormone produced especially at night in the pineal gland. It is widely known for the part it plays in the circadian rhythm, the hormonal cycle regulating people's sleep cycles, and is stimulated by the dark and inhibited by light.

Melatonin production decreases as people age, accounting for the sleepless nights with which many older Americans battle.

Growth hormone (GH) is secreted by the pituitary gland, which is located on the lower part of the brain under the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus is the section of the brain involved in the functions of the nervous system and in the endocrine system. It also seems to function in the part of the brain that affects people's moods and motivational states.

According to the Journal, the study looked at the effects of a single dose of oral melatonin taken at 5 mg on exercise-induced growth hormone secretion.

Seven healthy males undertook an initial period of graded bicycle exercise to determine maximum workload and oxygen uptake.

Researchers also studied, on two other occasions, men receiving either melatonin or placebo at the onset of each study.

Researchers found that GH concentration increased after taking melatonin and was greater than those taking the placebo.

Stimulating growth hormone secretion can have the effect of improving mental alertness, vitality and strength.

Talking to Your Child About Alcohol- KidsHealth.org

More than 54% of the children surveyed in a recent study by the federal government had tried alcohol by the time they reached eighth grade. Experts suggest that parents play the most important role in determining how children handle the temptation to drink alcohol.

In order to help prevent alcohol abuse in children, parents should begin discussing alcohol use and abuse with their children at an early age and continue openly communicating throughout their children's development.

Communication Is the Key
"Create an atmosphere early on where it is OK to ask questions and where no question is dumb," Linda Quistad-Berg, a consultant with the Minnesota Prevention Resource Center, suggests. "This sets the stage for perhaps more important questions about alcohol later on."

Food Enzymes

HOW IMPORTANT ARE ENZYMES?

Dr. Edward Howell says, "The length of life is inversely proportional to the rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential of an organism. The increased use of food enzymes promotes a decreased rate of exhaustion of the enzyme potential." From his book, "The Enzyme Nutrition Axiom"

We do not eat enough raw foods to replenish the enzymes used to digest cooked and processed foods. Supplementation is a wise choice.

Nature's Sunshine's "Food Enzymes" provides a broad spectrum of enzymes to digest the various types of food components. Each capsule digests at least 30 grams of protein, 30 grams of carbs, and 20 grams of fat. This formulation also supports the body's immune and anti-inflammatory defenses.

Laughter Is Good Medicine
**********************

A new missionary recruit went to Venezuela for the first time. He was struggling with the language and didn't understand a whole lot of what was going on. Intending to visit one of the local churches, he got lost, but eventually got back on track and found the place. Having arrived late, the church was already packed. The only pew left was the one on the front row.

So as not to make a fool of himself, he decided to pick someone out of the crowd to imitate. He chose to follow the man sitting next to him on the front pew. As they sang, the man clapped his hands, so the missionary recruit clapped too. When the man stood up to pray, the missionary recruit stood up too. When the man sat down, he sat down.

When the man held the cup and bread for the Lord's Supper, he held the cup and bread. During the preaching, the recruit didn't understand a thing. He just sat there and tried to look just like that man in the front pew.
Then he perceived that the preacher was giving announcements. People clapped, so he looked to see if the man was clapping. He was, and so the recruit clapped too.

Then the preacher said some words that he didn't understand and he saw the man next to him stand up. So he stood up too. Suddenly a hush fell over the entire congregation. A few people gasped. He looked around and saw that nobody else was standing. So he sat down.

After the service ended, the preacher stood at the door shaking the hands of those who were leaving. When the missionary recruit stretched out his hand to greet the preacher, the preacher said, in English: "I take it you don't speak Spanish."

The missionary recruit replied: "No I don't. It's that obvious?"

"Well yes," said the preacher, "I announced that the Acosta family had a newborn baby boy and would the proud father please stand up."
