  • Tips to Stay Healthy, Happy Through the Holidays

    December 2017

    ®

    The holiday season is in full swing. It’s the time of year for joy, fellowship and hope.

    Sometimes all of the extra activities and get-togethers lead to overeating, derailed exercise routines, lack of sleep and increased feelings of stress.

    It doesn’t have to be that way. There are a number of things you can do to get through the holidays without weight gain, exhaustion and stress. Here are some tips that will help from an article by Leana Wen, M.D. in the Huffington Post.

    • Eat well. Although the holiday season presents plenty of temptations to overeat, there are ways you can eat healthy and well. Research shows it’s worse to completely deprive yourself of high-calorie treats because it can set you up for binge-eating later. Instead, indulge in moderation. Eat smaller meals instead of “saving yourself” for one huge buffet. Eat something healthy before you head for that holiday gathering, so you will eat less at the event. Be careful of liquid calories, including alcoholic beverages.

    • Stay active. Exercise is just as important during the holidays as any other time of the year. Try to be active at least four to five times a week, preferably with some aerobic exercise every day. Colder temperatures of winter offer opportunities for such things as ice skating or sledding, which can be great exercise.

    • Prevent illness and injuries. Colds and the flu are most prevalent in the winter. Prevent them by washing your hands regularly and urging others to do the same. Stay warm by dressing in layers. Sprinkle sand on icy patches.

    • De-stress. Holidays can be a stressful time. Juggling work and the added commitments to friends and family may increase your feelings of stress. Extra expenses and interpersonal conflicts may also add to those feelings. Make a plan for handling these stresses. This may involve committing to fewer get-togethers or setting a tighter budget. Don’t feel guilty; you have to take care of yourself before you can take of others.

    • Treat yourself. The holiday spirit is about helping others around you, but you also have to make time to take care of yourself. So treat yourself with something over the holidays. It may be something as simple as sleep. Wake up late and enjoy a day of rest; you need it. Take the time to do the things that make you happy.

    Garlic has been used for thousands of years, not only as a flavorful addition to meals but also as a natural remedy.

    In fact, garlic is one of the best infection fighters available for both bacterial and viral infections, according to an article in the Baseline of Health newsletter.

    Baseline of Health was founded by Jon Barron, author of “Lessons from the Miracle Doctors.”Barron is a neutraceutical researcher and a board member of the Health Sciences Institute.

    Garlic is a natural antibiotic that does not appear to create resistant bacteria strains, according to the article.

    Garlic for Natural Cold Relief One study found that those who supplemented daily with garlic reduced the number of colds they had by 63 percent, and the average length of cold symptoms was reduced by 70 percent from those in the placebo group, according to the article. Another study found that high doses of garlic extract may reduce the length of days you’re sick with a cold or the flu by 61 percent.

    Garlic as an Immune Booster Garlic has the ability to stimulate a healthy immune system. It can stimulate the activity of the macrophages (white blood cells), which engulf foreign organisms, such as viruses, bacteria and yeast. Garlic also increases the activity of the T-helper cells (immune cells which are central to the activity of the entire immune system). When garlic is crushed or chopped, it forms a number of biochemicals that together with the odor-providing chemical ajoene, work to destroy many types of parasites.

    Garlic as a Natural Antibacterial Garlic may be particularly effective in treating upper respiratory viral infections because of its immune-enhancing properties and ability to clear mucus from the

    lungs, according to the article. Garlic destroys and/or inhibits various bacteria and fungi, with an antibacterial action equivalent to 1 percent penicillin. Garlic benefits for men and women also include its being an effective ally against strep, staph and even anthrax bacteria.

    The Garlic Information Center of Great Britain reports the following: “Garlic is the only antibiotic that can actually kill infecting [anthrax] bacteria and at the same time protect the body from the poisons that are causing the infection. It is known that the most sensitive bacterium to garlic is the deadly Bacillus anthracis, which produces the poison anthrax. Even the forefather of antibiotic medicine Louis Pasteur acknowledged garlic to be as effective as penicillin, and late studies showed similar activity to a more modern antibiotic, chloramphenicol. Even the blood of garlic eaters can kill bacteria; and it is also reported that the vapor from freshly cut garlic can kill bacteria at a distance of 8 inches.”

    Garlic for Heart Health More than just an infection fighter, garlic has a number of other health benefits. Some studies have shown that supplementation with garlic may have a significant impact on reducing blood pressure in people with high blood pressure issues. It also appears to help reduce total and/or LDL cholesterol by about 10-15 percent.

    How to Use Garlic In order to experience the benefits of garlic, it should sit for about 10 minutes or so after it has been chopped or crushed to allow the enzymes in garlic to start working on your behalf.

    Superior Digestive Formula*Enzymes are the primary missing nutritional component in

    processed and cooked foods.

    Cooking temperature above 118 degrees destroys vital enzymes. In youth, you have a naturally high inheritance of enzymes concentrated in your cells. As you grow older, the increasing demand for these life-extending enzymes leads to enzyme depletion. Ultra Daily Enzymes is an all-natural, high- potency, digestive enzyme supplement that supplies powerful food enzymes to help digest protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, milk, lactose, beans/legumes and other nutritional factors, releasing their life-supporting nutrients. Ultra Daily Enzymes can improve the level of digestion and help ensure you attain the maximum level of nutrient absorption.*

    YOUR KEY TO UNLOCKING THE NUTRIENTS IN FOOD!These highly active, concentrated enzymes derive from plant

    sources. Plant enzymes are active in a much broader pH range than other enzyme products for maximum digestive function. Ultra Daily Enzymes also contains probiotics, or “friendly” bacteria, lactobacillus, acidophilus and bifidus longum, which promotes and maintains intestinal health.*

    Known as the “life spark” or “fountain of life” enzyme levels decline rapidly with age, diminishing our health and vitality. Tests have shown that a 70-year-old has less than 10 percent of the cellular enzymes found in infants. Supplementing your diet with food enzymes can be highly beneficial.*

    Studies have shown that lab rats live 30 percent longer with supplemental enzymes.

    Suggested Use: One or more capsules three times daily with meals, or as otherwise desired. This product’s performance can be enhanced with use of one of the ALTRUM Multis.

    Ultra Daily Enzymes contains a blend of 13 plant-derived enzymes to assist in digestion of foods. These enzymes help break down fats, proteins, dairy and carbohydrates to ease digestion and facilitate nutrient absorption.* This formula also contains a prebiotic blend that supports the flora necessary for a healthy digestive system.*

    Suggested Use: One capsule three times daily with each meal.
