A NOTE FROM RANDAL

We have been enjoying unseasonally warm days in our area of Virginia. We
have been busy getting our taxes and reports in order. It sure seems
strange that a whole year has gone by and we are back to doing our taxes
again.

Be sure to get yours done early to avoid that last minute crunch. I find
that if I don’t wait to the last minute my nerves sure do appreciate it.

Donna and I are both in good health and enjoying our lives to the fullest.
Hope the same is true for all of you.

Until Next Time,
Randal

MAGNESIUM

Magnesium has been linked as beneficial to many illnesses. Our diet is
certainly not providing what it used to when the soils had the minerals in
them that were needed to put minerals in our food. That’s why
supplementation is so critical. Here’s some ideas on the benefits of
Magnesium.

PMS
A diet high in magnesium is recommended for women with PMS
as studies indicate that chronic intracellular magnesium depletion
can cause PMS symptoms.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
In a hypertension trial, at the National Cardiovascular Center in Osaka,
Japan, supplements of 480 milligrams of magnesium were given to 60 men
and women who had high blood pressure for 8 weeks. The study found that
although the women,s blood pressure remained unchanged, all 34 men
experienced a small but significant reduction in the blood pressure
during the supplementation. They averaged a drop of 2 to 4 millimeters
of mercury (mmHg) in their systolic blood pressure and 1.5 to 2 mmHg
reduction in diastolic pressure.

Small as the observed reductions are, they may still be significant,
according to the National High Blood Pressure Education Program. It has
been reported, “For the general population, a reduction of 3 mmHg in
systolic blood pressure would yield 11 percent fewer strokes, 7 percent
fewer coronary events, and 5 percent fewer [premature] deaths.”

DIABETES
Magnesium is a key component forcarbohydrate metabolism. It can influence
the activity of insulin. Elevated glucose levels increase the loss of
magnesium in urine.

HEART DISEASE
Surveys have associated higher blood levels of magnesium with
lower risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, dietary surveys have
suggested that a higher magnesium intake is associated with a lower risk
of stroke.

HEALTH NEWS

Men know how painful childbirth is once they pass a kidney stone. That’s a
big incentive to avoid them. Until now, doctors have recommended a
low-calcium diet, because the stones contain calcium crystals and people who
get them have high calcium levels. But in a study in last week’s New
England Journal of Medicine, this diet was put to a test in stone-prone men..
It was compared over five years with a diet low in salt and animal protein
which also contributes to stone formation. Men on the second diet (low salt
and low protein) did much better, developing about half as many stones.

BLOOD SUGAR IMPROVEMENT

“I was diagnosed with blood sugar problems a few months back and along with
following the doctor’s orders, I decided to use herbs as a friend of mine
did who had excellent results being able to avoid shots. I took them for a
couple of months and my bloodwork was doing well. I thought it was time for
a test, so I didn’t take my herbs for several days. My blood sugar went
above 130. I then started back and it dropped to 92 points. Below 110 is
the ideal range to have. So, I’m glad to have the benefits of herbal
medicine.” Ray W.

TEST YOUR ESSENTIAL OILS FOR PURITY

Do you wonder if your essential oils are pure? If they aren’t, they’re not
going to work for what you’re using them for. Some can be downright toxic
especially if you’re using them in quantity or on pets and children.

Here’s a simple way to test your essential oils
