Do you have high cholesterol readings? Did you know that this is probably caused by the starches, sugars, and alcohols in your diet?

Imagine eating all of the eggs you want, leaving the skin on chicken, and using butter instead of margarine, and having your cholesterol readings lowered.

In the video link below learn how eating the opposite diet from the medical approach can get positive results.

Why Even ‘Good’ Changes Can Make Us Feel Bad – Article

Ruth Luban, MA

Ruth Luban, MA

We are living in a time of tremendous upheaval and change. Globally and locally, we’ve been assaulted by our struggling economy and environmental disasters.

Change happens when something stops or starts in our lives. Some changes are out of our control, such as the loss of a job, financial setbacks, the loss of loved ones or health problems. Other changes are of our making, such as marriage, retirement, geographic relocation, and career retreading.

The article link below asks us – Since change is a given, why not look at the gifts that result from transition?

How to Fight Off a Cold or the Flu

David Getoff, CCN, CTN, FAAIM

Sometimes you can fight off a cold or the flu if you follow this protocol the moment you begin to feel sick. Take real vitamin A (not beta carotene) less than 60 minutes after you begin to feel tired or get that “I’m going to be sick tomorrow” feeling. Take 75,000 to 80,000 IU of it and also take at least 1,000 mg of vitamin C. Throughout the day take at least 1,000 mg of vitamin C per 40 pounds of body weight. So, if you are 120 pounds, take at least 3,000 mg of vitamin C, split up into 1,000 mg increments. Vitamin C is water-soluble so it needs to be taken multiple times throughout the day so your body can absorb it. Vitamin A is fat-soluble and is slowly released by the liver throughout the day so it can be taken all at once.

To completely fight off the potential cold or flu continue this protocol for at least three days after you feel completely better.
