Clean Start 14-Day Cleanse for Your Body’s Spring Cleaning

Thousands of people have had life-changing experiences with cleansing. No wonder they want to tell the world about their success. The secret to maintaining and building health is having a clean body-inside and out.

Body tissues must be free of toxins that can get in the way of normal bodily functions. Like a precision-crafted machine, dirt-free internal workings are far more critical to health than cleanliness on the outside.

Clean Start may be your answer to Spring Cleaning for your body! 🙂

A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

I will be going to visit my family in Oklahoma City for Mothers Day. I leave tomorrow and looking forward to seeing our son and all of my other family too. I also plan to catch up with some old High School buddies time permitting. It is nice to visit family and friends. So many times we let our health go down to where it is an effort to make trips and be with others. Why not, consider starting a program of prevention and strengthening if you havent already. After all, life will keep going even if we dont.

Thanks for your help and spreading the word.

Until next time, be in good health!

Health News For Kids

Fatty Acids May Help Kids’ Behavior Problems

Dietary supplementation with omega-3 and other fatty acids appears to reduce the educational and behavioral problems of children with a condition termed developmental coordination disorder (DCD), UK researchers report.

“In DCD children, supplementing their diet with mainly omega-3 fatty acids led to highly significant improvements in their reading, spelling and behavior,” lead investigator Dr. Alexandra J. Richardson of the University of Oxford told Reuters Health.

Moreover, symptoms typical of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, “including difficulties in attention and concentration as well as hyperactivity and impulsivity, fell markedly,” Richardson continued. In fact, the benefit of the supplements seemed to be similar to that usually achieved by stimulant medication.

Richardson and co-investigator Dr. Paul Montgomery, also at the University of Oxford, studied 117 children with DCD, who were between 5 and 12 years of age. The kids were randomly assigned to dietary supplementation with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids or inactive placebo capsules.

After three months, the placebo group crossed

Pets are developing diseases that were unheard of years ago, such as diabetes, cancer, liver and kidney diseases, not to mention the increased medical cost for treating these diseases. We do not want to replace good veterinary care and routine check-ups, but wouldn’t it make sense to keep our pets as healthy as possible to prevent these illnesses and diseases, or to lessen the severity of them? Natural heartworm prevention is available and even heartworm programs using herbs and supplements. They’ve been working for years and with lots of dogs. Read stories from pet owners and

Laughing Lines
Laughter Is Good Medicine

A new miracle doctor had just arrived in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he could do – everyone except for Mr. Thompson, the town skeptic.

Grumpy old Mr. Thompson went to this ‘miracle doctor’ to prove that he wasn’t anybody special. He went and told the doctor, “Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can’t taste nothin’, so what are ya goin’ to do?”

The doctor scratched his head and mumbled to himself a little, then told Mr. Thompson, “What you need is jar number 47.”

So the doctor brought the jar and told Mr. Thompson to taste it.

He tasted it and immediately spit it out, “This is gross!” he yelled.

“I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Thompson,” said the doctor.

So Mr. Thompson went home very mad.

One month later, Mr. Thompson went back to the doctor along with a new problem, “Doc,” he started, “I can’t remember anything!”

Thinking he had the doctor stumped now, he waited as the doctor scratched his head, mumbled to himself a little, and told Mr. Thompson, “What you need is jar number 47…”

Immediately Mr. Thompson was cured and fled the room!
