This is a simple graphic we found that reminds us of some important reasons to drink water every morning. Even if you can't afford to add minerals (like Xooma Worldwide's Extreme X2O) which we highly recommend, it's still very vital to our health to hydrate every morning with water.

When we were children, we may have always thought of oranges as simply a source of Vitamin C. In reality, oranges contain and provide more than just Vitamin C. One medium size orange provides about 6% of the recommended Calcium which is important in building strong bones and teeth. Aiding in the absorption of Calcium is Magnesium.

If based on personal experience alone, I wouldn't recommend anyone going on any kind of prescription antidepressants. More than a decade ago, I had symptoms of depression that just didn't seem to go away. A physician assistant I worked with prescribed some antidepressants for me to try and I ended up feeling "weirded out" - like my body and brain were completely separate from one another. I could not stop rocking myself back and forth. It was scary. Of course, I discontinued taking the pills after that bout. I was given another brand to try later and experienced just as bad of a reaction. I decided "no more". I'd just deal with it.

Our beloved pets, like us (their humans), need fresh water and minerals to help sustain a long healthy life. In fact they could benefit from the same mineral supplement that has helped many of us achieve "wetter water", a more alkaline cellular environment, and increased oxygenation within our bodies.

We can joke around about an occasional bout of forgetfulness. Sometimes we can also find humor in it occurring more frequently as we age. But when this forgetfulness becomes a more regular occurrence, it affects our day-to-day living and affects people around us, especially the people we live and work with.

Last year the United States unveiled nine graphic health warning labels that must cover half the area of cigarette packages by this September. In Australia, an Australian court upheld a law requiring "plain-packaged" cigarettes, with no corporate branding on the pack.

Did you know that there is plenty of truth to the "scary" stories you hear from natural health advocates about the dangers of sodas. That's right! It's not just some anti-soda company campaign that's going around. It's the truth and manufacturers with millions of dollars to spend on advertising try to convince you otherwise. And then they invest even more money getting fast food and other restaurants to carry their "brand" or "line" of sodas by offering substantial discounts.

Many of us adults probably remember how much our parents used to tell us to eat our fruits and vegetables. Of course, it likely was easier to follow through with eating fruits because they simply had more flavor to them than vegetables. Plus there's a natural sweetness to them that made them so much more tasty.
Nowadays, with so many busy lifestyles and eating on the run, it's hard to eat fresh fruits and vegetables. It's no wonder why fiber shakes, vitamin shakes, and similar "liquid food replacement" products fly off the store shelves as quickly as they do.

Walking is the probably the easiest form of exercise you can get without spending any money on (other than maybe clothes and a good pair of walking shoes). There are countless health benefits from walking but one we don't always consider is how it can positively affect our moods. As the picture shows, walking can boost brain chemistry to increase happiness.

The scientific community is still hesitant to admit that cancer is preventable through proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Even though proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are not fool-proof methods of preventing cancer, we can also say that medical science does not have a fool-proof way to treat it either. So when it comes to choosing between the lesser of two evils (pardon the expression) which would you choose - the high probability of success method of prevention or the high probability of deadly side effects cure?

Why should anyone take a chance on changing their health with Kardiaxyme™? There are lots of evidence to support this.
“Over 12 million Americans are prescribed a statin drug with the most common side effect being muscle pain and weakness. But the second most common side effect is rarely discussed in the literature, and not listed in the package insert of any of the commonly prescribed statin drugs. It is known as "transient global amnesia (TGA)"—the sudden and temporary loss of memory.” - Julian Whitaker
Just like the poster asks - why would you drink all that sugar? After learning just how much sugar is actually in that $1 - $2 bottle of soda and knowing how damaging all that sugar is to our body's metabolism (not to mention how it lowers our body's pH level) and resulting in a domino-effect of health problems, WHY?

Have you ever seen the website called Sugar Stacks? The site has some pretty interesting photos used to help readers visualize just how much sugar comes in many of our common beverages and foods. It's actually quite scary to see how much there is, especially when you consider how we have downed one drink after another, in an incessant quest to quench that thirst. No wonder we can still feel thirsty after one bottle or can of these drinks!

We recently shared the breakthrough advances of Kardiaxyme which has helped resolve many inflammatory and circulatory problems of the people who were fortunate enough to use it. But since the breakdown of the supplier and the manufacturer's relationship (shortly after our first post was published), the question has been asked - what other natural alternatives are available that can do what Kardiaxyme has been able to do?

There's an amazing new product out from a company called Xooma Worldwide. The product is called Xooma Blast, which is actually a new version of a previously successful top-selling product they carried for a few years. It's just like all those powder drink stick mixes you see in your local supermarket - except without the calories, artificial ingredients, or dangerous additives. Xooma Blast is packed with the antioxidant-boosting power of the coffee bean and sweetened with all-natural Stevia.
