A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

We had a great time in Charleston, SC, with our friends. Laughter is so good for the heart and soul. Our emotions really do set the stage for health or disease. The best book we’ve found to link specific emotions with specific health issues is, “A More Excellent Way” by Henry Wright. It makes a GREAT gift idea for anybody you know that struggles with health problems and is open to getting to finding a solution within their own grasp.

Here’s a link with more info: “/essential_oils_introduction_sp_2/”
Emotions and Disease

We’re hoping you will have a blessed Thanksgiving and encourage you to make a list of all the things that come to mind that you are thankful for. I bet you’ll look at the holiday with a different point of view …. and you will digest your food better too! 🙂

It’s that time of the year when overeating is a real battle to win! This issue will give you some information to arm yourself with so you can hopefully do better in the battle. After all … we need to eat to live rather than live to eat right? That may be hard to imagine when you’re looking at all those wonderful holiday desserts 🙂

Until next time, be in good health!

HSN-W For Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails

Show off for the holidays 🙂

Do your nails break?
Does your hair lack luster and have split ends?
Does your skin sag?
Are your joints stiff and painful?

You may need more silicon in your diet and this herbal combination is a way to get it. Silicon is an element that works with calcium to improve the strength and flexibility of the structural system of the body. Calcium is hard and brittle (like chalk), but when silicon combines with calcium and other minerals for bones, nails, hair, and teeth, it adds flexibility to the strength.

Silicon also improves skin tone and sheen and load bearing capacity of joints. It plays a role in nerve function as well, being part of the nerve sheath (myelin sheath) which protects and insulates the nerve fibers.

Western diets tend to be low in silica. The coarse, fibrous parts of the plant which contain the most silicon (husks, stems, peelings, cores, etc.), are not part of our diet. They are usually discarded.

Health In The News

Q: Does TV Make You Fat?

A: Only if you turn it on. 🙂

Sometimes one doesn’t need a study to realize an obvious truth. However, scientists did one just to hammer home the point. As you may have guessed, they found increased obesity and diabetes in those who watched the most television.

Each two-hour/day increment in TV watching was associated with a 23% increase in obesity and a 14% increase in risk of diabetes.

An interesting caveat was that even when they controlled for exercise, the more television a woman watched (while getting the same amount of exercise as someone who watched less television) the higher the risk for diabetes and obesity.

My hypothesis would be that if you are doing something else, even when not called exercise, you are moving a bit – i.e., housework, shopping, lawn mowing, etc. – instead of sitting on the couch. It’s good some things turn out as you’d expect.

Health News For Kids

Overeating and Diseases

A basic tenet of some traditional health practices say that the body can successfully digest only a certain amount of food at one time. Consistently exceeding capacity can lead to improper digestion and disease.

There’s an easy way to determine the correct amount of food to eat at each sitting and it’s a fun visual way for a child to learn to help set eating habits at a young age.

Put your hands together with pinkies touching in the shape of a bowl and imagine a rounded serving of food filling that space. That is what you can properly digest at a meal.

Laughter Is Good Medicine

A woman was taking her time browsing through everything at a friend’s yard sale, and said to her, “My husband is going to be very angry I stopped at a yard sale.”

“I’m sure he’ll understand when you tell him about all the bargains you found,” her friend replied.

“Normally, yes,” she said. “But he just broke his leg, and he’s waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set.”
