Top 9-Tips to Make Yourself Poop Anytime, Naturally

​How to Make Yourself Poop Anytime, Naturally​

​Don’t you just get stressed when you KNOW you need to poop but you just can’t go?

You have to catch an early morning flight, and you want to get your toilet duties over and done with, so you won’t be bothered anymore once you’re on the plane.

Or, you haven’t gone for a few days, and you’re starting to feel not so good…

No matter what it is, I’m pretty sure you have a perfectly good reason why you’re reading this post right now. And you need to get your pooping schedule back in the groove again.

After all, doesn’t it just feel so liberating once you have gone exactly when and where you wanted to?

The feeling of lightness, of being clean inside… That’s priceless!

So read up and check out these no-fail tips on how to make yourself poop the easy, natural, and quick way.

​A Very Serious Matter…

​Not being able to poop is something not to be taken lightly.

In fact, if you’ve been having a hard time going, or you haven’t gone at all for a couple of days or so, it’s actually quite alarming.

Just think - you’ve been eating everyday but the wastes aren’t coming out of your body.

It’s like not taking the trash out at home for days or even weeks!

You’re literally a walking pile of junk inside… And it’s not good for you at all.

And where does the junk go? Just circulating in your body, that’s what!

No wonder some people develop all nasty diseases and various medical conditions. It’s because wastes are just getting reabsorbed in their bloodstream, wreaking havoc to their cells, tissues, organs.

This is why if you’ve been having a hard time pooping, you need to take action - quick. Time to take the trash out where it’s supposed to pass naturally instead of turning it into a major, very expensive medical procedure!

What Happens When You Don’t Poop

What Happens When You Don’t Poop

​In a normal world, your body eliminates wastes from the food you eat. This is why you pee, sweat, breathe, and yes, poop.

Bowel movements is the way in which your body gets rid of undigested material from food such as nutrients that you may be intolerant to. There are also sloughed off cells of your intestinal wall that need to be eliminated.

Then, there are fat-soluble toxins that are basically useless substances in your body, which can only be eliminated by pooping.

So, if you don’t poop, all of these things just sit in your colon and can’t get out.

Your wastes are piling up and obviously, the result is going to get ugly...

Why Can’t You Poop?

Now you know what happens when you don’t poop, and the next question is, why can’t you poop?

When you can’t poop, or you’re constipated, it’s because there’s not enough bulk in your body.

You don’t have fiber that causes the wastes to get pushed out and pass through your colon.

It’s also possible that you are not pooping because you don’t drink enough, or you don’t exercise enough.

Your diet, your lifestyle, all of these things impact the ease or difficulty of passing stool through the colon.

You’ll find out more about the reasons why pooping is hard for most people as you keep reading. I have enumerated 9 ways for you to have regular poop, and doing the opposite of those things are the culprits why you’re not taking the trash in your body out.

Fiber - The Magic Poop Pill

I have mentioned earlier that fiber is important in helping you poop regularly.

Dietary fiber is the roughage or food components that your body cannot digest. So what it does is it passes through your stomach, your small intestines and your colon, and then out your body.

There are two types of fiber, the soluble fiber that is easily dissolved in water and the insoluble, which does not dissolve in water.

Insoluble fiber is what helps move material through the digestive system and helps ease constipation. These foods include whole wheat flour, beans, nuts, potatoes, and cauliflower, to name a few.

As for soluble fiber, this is responsible for regulating your cholesterol levels and keep your heart healthy. Food items such as oats, whole grains, and seeds are rich in this type of fiber.

Be sure to include both the soluble and insoluble fiber in your body to achieve optimum benefits from it!

Important Reasons Why You Need Fiber

Fiber is necessary for keeping your bowel movements regular. It also increases the size and weight of your stool, as well as softens it.

When you have a bulky stool, this passes easier, and you’ll have a lower risk of being constipated. Watery stools, however, can become harder and more solid with the help of fiber because of the roughage it adds.

Aside from helping you poop regularly, fiber also does other things to your body. It helps regular your blood sugar levels, reduce your cholesterol level, and assist with weight loss.

According to the Institute of Medicine, adults 50 years old and younger need 25 grams (women) to 38 grams (men) of fiber daily. As for those who are 51 years and up, they need 21 grams (women) and 30 grams (men) of daily fiber intake to ensure good health.

By consuming the right amount of fiber in your body, you can stay healthier and live longer!

9 Easy Ways to Make Yourself Poop

You don’t have to hold on to that poop for too long!

There are simple things you can do to make yourself poop, and these 9 tips can get you regular to achieve better health.

1. Increase your fiber intake.

How much fiber do you eat each day?

If you are not eating enough fiber, pooping is much more difficult to do.

Be sure to include fiber-rich foods in your diet daily such as oats, whole grains, nuts, seeds, leafy greens, and fruits.

Start your day with a fruit smoothie, a bowl of muesli or oatmeal, and fruits. Then, get your greens in for lunch, whole grain bread and veggie sticks dipped in peanut butter for snacks, and brown rice with steamed vegetables for dinner.

It’s so easy to incorporate fiber in your diet, and it is just a matter of really making an effort to planning your meals each day.

2. Drink up!

Water helps you have a more regular bowel movement.

But most people are not aware of the right amount of water they should drink each day.

Be sure to drink half your body weight in ounces. So if you weigh 100 pounds, you need to drink 50 ounces of water daily.

Are you 150 pounds? Then it’s 75 ounces of water for you.

3. Laxatives help.

If you need an extra boost to poop, laxatives can definitely help.

You can find over the counter laxatives available at the pharmacy including bisacodyl and senna-sennosides. Osmotic laxatives are also quite common such as polyethylene glycol, lactulose, and magnesium hydroxide.

For a much stronger PEG laxative, you will need a doctor’s prescription for that.

4. Soften that stool.

Dehydration is one of the main culprits for constipation, which makes your stool hard and tough to come out.

Fortunately, there are stool softeners sold at local pharmacies that can help people who have a difficult time pooping because of this problem.

Common stool softeners include docusate calcium and docusate sodium. These help facilitate the exiting of your stool more easily.

5. Do an enema.

Enemas help soften the stool to make it easier and more efficient for you to move bowels.

There are different types of enema you can try including soapsids, tap water enemas, and sodium phosphate.

Just be sure to follow the correct procedure on how to administer enema to get favorable results from it.

6. Get moving.

Couching all day definitely won’t help you poop.

You need to get moving to increase the blood flow in your abdomen and help push the stool out of your body.

Simple physical activities such as jogging or walking should suffice in making you poop much easier. There are also yoga poses to help you poop that are worth giving a try and adding in to your daily routine.

7. Grab your cup of Joe.

Did you know that coffee makes you poop?

Coffee is packed with chemicals including chlorogenic acid that helps your body produce gastric acid. This acid reduces your stomach’s pH while speeding up the food’s movement in your digestive tract. As a result, your stomach pushes out wastes much more efficiently.

There are also hormones released with the help of coffee, and these include cholecystokinin and gastrin. These hormones improve digestion and activate your colon to move things around.

Leaning more towards decaf coffee? No problem. Whether you drink caffeinated or decaf coffee, this does not stop gastrin and gastric acid from being released in your body because it’s not a caffeine thing that makes it happen.

8. Take fiber supplements.

If eating fiber-rich food is not enough, you can also consider taking fiber supplements to move things much faster in your stomach.

These supplements include psyllium, methylcellulose, and polycarbophil.

All of these supplements help treat constipation, IBS, and diarrhea. Generally, you will have to take these supplements a couple of hours before you sit on the toilet.

Although these are over the counter fiber supplements, you still need to consult your doctor before taking them to make sure they don’t counteract with the existing supplements or medicines you take, or to ensure their safety to your specific health condition.

​9. Massaging can do the trick.

Lastly, a simple thing to do to help yourself poop is by massaging the perineum. It’s that part between your anus and genitals, and putting pressure in this area may assist in the softening and breaking up of stools.

It definitely won’t hurt to try, along with the other recommended tips on how to make yourself poop that I have listed above. It’s natural, safe, and many people swear by how it works for them.

​Go Forth and Be Regular!

​Not being able to go regularly is not just uncomfortable but it’s also dangerous to your health.

You’re just allowing your body to reabsorb wastes, which can lead to long-term and even immediate health problems.

So apply these tips on how to make yourself poop to keep your body functioning right and avoid diseases that will impact your life.

Stay on a fiber-rich diet, get moving, keep hydrated, and have a regular bowel movement today and everyday!

Know the Causes and Proven Ways on How to Reverse Aging Today!

​Know the Causes and Proven Ways on How to Reverse Aging Today!

​Do you wish you could look and feel younger for as long as possible?

If you want to know how to reverse aging, you’ll be glad to know that it does not always have to involve going under the knife.

In fact, a trip to the grocery store and perhaps taking a side trip to the pharmacy are all that you need to turn back the clock slowly, surely, and safely.

How?

Well, keep reading because what I’m about to reveal to you may not be as complicated as how you thought it would be. Reversing aging is not an insurmountable feat - and you’ll know why once you have reached the end of this post.

Time to reset your body with these easy and absolutely doable steps!

​What Causes Aging?

You blow out the candles on your birthday cake each year.

Does this cause aging? Biological age?

Not quite!

There are people who are over 50 years of age but still look and feel like they are in their 30s. And vice-versa.

So what is the cause of aging?

Unhealthy habits are primarily to blame for those nasty wrinkles, sagging skin, droopy eyelids, bad back, arthritis, and so on and so forth.

Smoking cigarettes, too much alcohol consumption, not getting enough sleep, lack or no exercises at all, poor stress management, unhealthy diet, not drinking enough water - these are just some of the evil culprits behind aging.

If you are still in your 20's and guilty of doing these things, you are well on your way to aging, and it goes downhill from there, trust me.

There is never a better time to start taking care of your health than right now. If you want to age gracefully and still feel at your best as you hit your senior years, fundamental changes have to happen.

​Age-Accelerating Habits

What Happens When You Don’t Poop

​As I mentioned above, there are habits and routines that most people do that age them faster.

You may not be aware of it but getting inadequate amounts of sleep, grabbing your daily breakfast from a drive-thru, partying and consuming too much alcohol, not managing your stress, poor relationships and lack of exercise are some major factors that are speeding up your body’s aging process.

These habits are destructive to your cells and most especially to your mitochondria, which is the powerhouse of your cells. These tiny “factories” supply energy to your cells by feeding them with nutrients from the food you eat, so if these so-called factories slowly die and reduce in number, then you’ll have less and less of healthy cells.

Unhealthy cells = aging faster.

It only makes sense that by allowing yourself to keep doing these unhealthy habits, you are also marching faster down the aging road. And it may be harder than you think to go back up and reverse aging when there is more damage done to your body.

It is absolutely possible to slow down the effects of aging but the sooner you start taking action, the better.

​Is It Possible to Reverse Aging?

​Yes!

You CAN reverse aging as long as it is not too late. What this means is that you have not done such extensive damage to your body that just can’t be reversed.

Say you are in an advanced level of a critical illness. Naturally, reversing aging is difficult and almost impossible.

But if you are just starting to experience some symptoms, better yet, you just woke up one day and realized you want to start looking and feeling younger, then you can very much reverse aging and have more chances of succeeding than when you are gravely ill.

​Are These Signs of Aging Starting to Bother You?

stress is your worst enemy

​Maybe you are in your late 30s and you are starting to realize you no longer have that glow and radiance in you.

Or you are in your 50s and you wish you could go back to how you looked and felt in your younger years.

Let us first talk about the signs of aging that most people deal with and why they happen.

Red Eyes

​No, we are not talking about your eyes turning red when you are suffering from allergies, from crying, or from staring at your screen for too long.

When you frequently have red eyes even if you have not done any of the things listed above, then you may be suffering from inflammation. Chronic inflammation is linked with various degenerative diseases and ailments associated with age including osteoarthritis.

Droopy Eyelids

droopy eyes

​Your eyes say something about your physical condition and yes, your age.

When your eyelids are starting to droop or they are constantly in this state of drooping, it is a sign of many things such as fluid retention, thyroid dysfunction, and fatigue.

It is also typical that droopy eyelids means you are suffering from oxidative stress, a condition where free radicals are building up and causing damage to your body on the cellular level.

​Sagging Skin

​​This is pretty much self-explanatory.

When your skin is starting to sag, it only mean one thing - you are aging.

Not that there  is anything abnormal about it. As you age, gravity begins to show its massive power as it pulls your skin down. You start to notice the skin stretching further down.

Mainly, it is because there is a reduced production of collagen in your body, which is responsible for keeping your skin taut and firm.

No amount of makeup can ever hold your skin up. Sure, makeup can contour your face a little and provide that optical illusion that your skin is still fresh and taut but once the makeup is off, reality will show itself to you.

The goal is not to rely on just covering up but by attacking the source of the problem and doing something about it.

Wrinkles

Maybe your skin is deprived of beauty, anti-aging foods.

This is why you have those deep furrows and noticeable nasio-labial lines that reveal your biological age to people at first sight.

But did you know that wrinkles can mean more than having those lines on your face?

For instance, deep nasio-labial furrows depict a possible congested digestive tract issue in your body, as well as insufficient oxygen in your body or a liver that’s been in overworked.  

This is why it is imperative that you start cleansing your body and every major organ to boost vitality, energy, and in the end, minimize these wrinkles on your face.

​​Pains Here and There…

pains here and there

​This is very much self-explanatory.

If you are experiencing pain, discomfort, and just plain tiredness even right after you wake up, you are definitely not carrying in you a body of a younger man or woman.

Aging is not just in the face but in how you feel each time you move and carry out your tasks.

​Skin Tone Changes

​Your skin reveals so much about your age. And yes, your health condition.

Naturally, glowing, radiant, and clear skin means you are in tiptop shape.

On the contrary, flaky and very dry skin could mean your thyroid is not doing great. When your thyroid is weak, it means your adrenals are falling short of producing hormones that keep you revitalized and energized.

Your adrenals and thyroid are reliant on your small and large intestines that eliminate wastes from your body. So when these parts of your body are compromised, your body becomes clogged up with waste and sludge that prevents your skin from glowing, clearing up and feeling supple.

​Constantly Fatigued

It is normal to feel tired after coming home from work.

You also feel tired when you have a lot of tasks to do at once but have little or no time to rest.

But if you are often tired for no reason, and you look tired even when you have just woken up, it means not everything is at it should be.

Stress and not being able to handle it well or being overloaded with it accelerates aging.

It could be a combination of not sleeping well, eating junk all the time, and not getting the social and emotional benefits of exercise.

​Inflammation and Aging - What’s the Link?

​What does it mean to be inflamed?

It basically means that your body is not performing its normal processes in an efficient and effective way.

Your major organs are overloaded and not capable of eliminating wastes, metabolizing nutrients, or producing hormones that in turn impact your health.

In other words, your body is not at its best because naturally, inflammation is not a normal state.

So when you are suffering from inflammation, aging follows. You will start feeling and looking older because your body’s organs are not doing their job of absorbing, eliminating, and utilizing nutrients from the food you eat.

And it could also mean that your diet will not be as beneficial.

aging

​How to Reverse Aging Naturally

​Now that we have discussed the different signs of aging, and we have also touched on what inflammation does to your body, let us talk about ways on how to reverse aging.

Like I said, it is absolutely possible to reverse aging, as long as you start sooner than later and you are implementing the right steps to do it.

So here are the things you need to do on how to reverse aging naturally.

1. Get Rid of Nasty Addictions

Smoking and drinking excessive alcohol are not doing you any good for your goal of attaining longevity and health.

In fact, smoking is the culprit behind a laundry list of destructive to fatal ailments including lung, liver, heart disorders.

Each time you light up a cigarette, you are slowly setting your vital organs on fire.

The same is true with alcohol consumption. Alcohol is linked with inflammation and damage to your liver. With your liver is no longer able to perform its job of filtering out wastes, you are simply reabsorbing the sludge that should have otherwise been removed from your body.

That does not sound too promising in the name of longevity, does it?

A glass of wine a week may be fine and may even be beneficial because of the resveratrol content. However, even though resveratrol benefits will completely change your life, it comes from many more foods than fermented grapes. And hard liquor does not do anything good to you at all.

2. Stay Hydrated

Eight glasses?

No. A person who weighs 100 pounds and another person who tips the scale at 200 pounds cannot possibly be drinking the same amount of water.

The goal is to drink half your total body weight in ounces. So if you weigh 100 pounds, you should drink 50 ounces of water each day. If you’re at 200 pounds, then it should be 100 ounces.

And no, I’m not talking about drinking soda, beer, and high-fructose juices. I recommend that you drink pure, clean water and with added natural, sugar-free juices, smoothies, and herbal teas throughout the day.

3. Get Your 8 Hours in

sleep

Prioritize your sleep each night.

Sleep is important as it energizes and allows your body to repair itself, which it cannot do during your waking moment.

When you get your sleep, your body goes through a healing and revitalization process, helping your vital organs function properly, and repair your cells.

If you’re having a hard time sleeping, be sure to eat a light dinner each night, stay away from technology at least 30 minutes before you actually doze off, and take deep breaths or meditate to put yourself in a relaxed, ready-to-sleep state.

4. Watch What You Eat

The food you eat impacts how slowly or quickly you age.

This is why you should cut back on saturated fats, high sodium, and acidic food and beverages.

Instead, load up on the good fats or essential fatty acids, and complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and oats.

You should also increase your intake of fresh, organic produce including fruits and vegetables, particularly dark leafy greens.

Eating in moderation is also imperative to good health and in slowing down the aging process, so don’t eat until you are stuffed. In fact, a great rule of thumb to follow is the 80/20 rule. Stop eating before the point where you feel full. It takes a few minutes for your stomach to tell your brain you’re actually full.

5. Don’t mess with your hormones.

Some people love to tweak their hormones.

This is why they take human growth hormone to build muscle, which eventually messes up their body.

The same goes for progesterone and estrogen replacement, which has been linked to numerous health risks, including cancer.

Before you decide to do something with your hormones through artificial means, it may be best to consult your doctor first and resort to a more natural means of working with your hormones to counter nasty medical problems.

6. Take the Right Supplements

Take the Right Supplements

Supplements are necessary if you are not receiving the required vitamins and minerals from the food you eat.

But supplement incorrectly, and you are doing more harm than good to your body.

This is why you need to take into account the right supplements that can benefit your body. These include CoQ10 and resveratrol to counter aging, ALA, antioxidants, B-vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids that all help with slowing down the aging process.

It is also best to check the company carefully to make sure it really makes pure, natural, and reliable supplements that will greatly benefit your health.

​7. Exercise daily.

When you do not exercise regularly, this causes your skeletal muscles to become weaker, which is also called Sarcopenia. Muscle loss increases your risk of balance issues and susceptibility to falls, as well as the inefficiency to perform your daily, mundane tasks.

So how can you fight it and prevent muscle loss and weakness?

Resistance training, weight lifting, and strength training all help.

It also helps to use free weights, exercise machines, and bands by slowly starting with a reasonable weight and then increasing the difficulty level once your body is accustomed to it.

Aging Woes - Do These End with an Alkaline Diet?

A diet that is rich in alkaline food such as antioxidants can greatly improve your joint pain, stiffness, and ultimately fight aging.

So when your goal is to slow down aging, you should consider eating foods that are alkaline-forming and minimize acid-forming ones.

The goal is to consume 80 percent alkaline foods such as ripe fruits, greens, sprouts, and other vegetables, preferably non-starchy ones.

By trading in refined sugars and fast food items for real and whole foods, you will start to feel less inflamed and see an improvement in your appearance at the same time.

Complete Anti-Aging Support That’s Science-Tested!

Good mitochondrial health slows down aging. Science has proven that by feeding your mitochondria, you can help achieve cellular energy and even counter the signs of aging, as well as rejuvenate joint functions.

Time Challenger is a supplement that I have created to provide optimum support to the mitochondria that tend to be compromised by unhealthy habits including lack of sleep, unhealthy diet, and poor stress management.

This supplement contains essential ingredients that help provide your body with maximum nutrients including resveratrol, CoQ10, DHEA, ALA, Acetyl L-Carnitine, B-vitamins, Vitamin D3, E, and enzymes to support and improve mitochondrial health.

Stress Is Your Worst Enemy

stress is your worst enemy

In addition to your mitochondria, your cells also have chromosomes that when are overly exposed to and overloaded with stress, can impact aging.

These are your telomeres, or the outermost portions of the cell chromosomes.

Stress is often the culprit behind chronic fatigue syndrome, and this condition actually makes you feel and look older than you are. As your body releases the hormone cortisol when you are stressed, this can eventually cause massive dangers to your body over time.

So if you are going through too much stress, it is important that you reduce it with soothing activities and hobbies that spark joy into your life.

Get Older But Feel Younger!

Yes, aging is inevitable.

We all get older each year, and this is a fact of life.

But that does not mean you should look and feel older than you are or to let yourself spiral down into sickness and feelings of being unwell all the time.

The good news about all of these things is that you are absolutely in control of the aging process.

You can slow it down and actually make each day of your life your best.

By taking care of yourself with good habits, you can get older but feel so many of the effects of it. In fact, taking care of yourself can make you feel energized, alive, healthy and optimistic.

If you have questions, please feel free to leave a comment below and let’s all work together towards excellent, thriving health and longevity the right and effective way!

Pet Vitamins and Supplements – 11 Essentials For Your Furry Friend

​Pet Vitamins and Supplements - 11 Essentials For Your Furry Friend

You love your pets, they’re an extension of your family. And you are your pet’s world. Isn’t it only right that you do everything you can to keep them healthy?

You give them exercise, lots of cuddles and toys to keep them busy. When it comes to pet nutrition, nothing says I love you more than a proper diet to promote excellent health. 

You may be wondering, what about pet vitamins and supplements? Is this something my pet needs?

The answer really depends. 

But it’s a topic worth exploring. In this post you’re going to learn about pet supplements and vitamins, when and if you should give them to your pet and what to look for.

Let’s dive in and chow down on some critical information for the well being of your pet!

​What Pet Supplements Are Really For

Pet owners supplement their pets diets for different reasons. 

It could be with an omega 3 fatty acid to improve your fur baby’s coat, help with skin conditions, decrease shedding, improve heart health, reduce allergies, or improve their cognitive functions. 

Or, maybe it’s a supplement for bone and joint. Or, maybe it’s a multivitamin to deliver multiple vitamins and minerals for your pets overall health.

Pet supplements and vitamins are intended to fill in the nutritional gaps your pet may be missing in their diet.  But how do you know if your pet is nutrient deficient?

​Does Your Pet Need Supplements? Clues to Know

What Happens When You Don’t Poop

Your pet doesn’t talk, well, not in human language at least. They can’t tell you when their diet is making them tired, or if they aren’t feeling well. 

So how do you know if your pet needs a vitamin or supplement?

This answer can depend on your pet’s age and breed but there are other indications to look for when it comes to supplementing their diet. 

Do they seem lethargic, shed a lot, suffer from dry nose, seem stiff or not as sharp as they used to be? This can be a sign they may need a supplement.

What About Supplements in Pet Food?

Most pet foods contain the vitamins and minerals needed for your pets health, but high heat can kill beneficial probiotics which can happen during processing.

Aging, mitochondrial health, and illness is linked to nutritional deficiencies. 

Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids are difficult to preserve in packaged food, so it may not be enough for your pet.

​Do You Need to Check with Your Vet Before Giving Your Pet Vitamins?

Always check with your veterinarian before giving your pet supplements. 

Not all supplements are created equal.

Just because your neighbor’s pet is taking a certain supplement doesn’t mean you should also give your pet the exact same supplement.

Some supplements contain herbals and other ingredients that may only be effective when used in combination with other vitamins and minerals.

Do Supplements Work?

This largely depends on what your pet needs, the supplement you give them and the quality of the vitamins and supplements. 

For instance, fatty acids given to pets can help improve their coats. This is the case with fish oil supplements that are intended to reduce inflammation.

Glucosamine /chondroitin for pets also help with osteoarthritis and minimize pain while improving mobility.

As for antioxidants including vitamins E and C, these help with inflammation and memory issues in senior dogs.

​Are there Dangers to Supplementing Pets?

First, you should NEVER give your pet a supplement designed for humans. And just like people, giving your pet too much of a good thing can be harmful. 

For example, an excess of calcium can result in skeletal issues in large breed dogs. Vitamin A overdose can result in joint pain, dehydration, and problems with blood vessels. Too much vitamin D in dogs can harm their bones and result in muscle atrophy.

​Are Pet Vitamins FDA-Approved?

The FDA is responsible for overseeing pet vitamins and supplements.

They also require tests for products to make sure the ingredients in these supplements are indeed reputable and meet the dietary and health concerns of pets.

​How to Choose the Best Pet Vitamins

​There are certain things to look for when choosing the best pet vitamins and supplements.
 
They are:

1. Check the Labels

What are the nutrients included in the supplement?

Also, what is the percentage of each nutrient per serving?

These are important pieces of information you need to know before buying a pet vitamin and supplement.

2. Consider the Brand’s Reputation

Just like when choosing a supplement for you, it is also essential to consider the reputation of the brand or the manufacturer.

Is the seller Reputable?

Does the brand have a good reputation among its customers?

How long has it been in the pet vitamin industry?

Are there recalls or questionable issues linked with this seller that you need to be aware of?

Do your homework before picking out a supplement for your pet. Not all companies are created equal.

Check for Studies Done to the Products

It is best to look for a product that has undergone clinical studies and tests.

These tests should be published for the public, so you can further analyze and determine if you should trust and buy the vitamin and give it to your pet.

Go for a Certified Organization Verifying the Contents of the Supplement

There are many companies that sell pet vitamins and supplements that are regarded for their reputation and certification.

For instance, there are Zesty Paws and NaturVet that have been around for years.

NutriVet and VertiScience are other pet vitamin and supplement companies that many pet owners trust for quality products.

3. Avoid Supplements with Questionable Ingredients

Never give your pet vitamins and supplements that contain harmful and questionable ingredients. 

Ingredients you should stay away from.

In addition, there are certain ingredients that are harmful to dogs.

Watch out for products with bitartrate, acetate, nitrate, hydrochloride, gluconate, chloride, and succinate. 

​Top 11 Pet Vitamins to Boost Health, Energy, and Life!

​Vitamins are essential to your pet’s health.

Aside from giving your four-legged friend good quality and balanced meals, you need to make sure it is getting ample nutrients daily.

These are some of the best pet vitamins that your pet can benefit from:

happy-dog-running

1. Vitamin A

​Vitamin A is necessary for the synthesis of proteins, and some hormones. It helps with the production of healthy skin cells and works in improving your pet’s vision.

This vitamin is fat-soluble, which is essential for proper cell function, strong immune system, and fetal development for healthy pups!

2. B-Vitamins

There are different B-vitamins that your pet needs such as:

  • ​Thiamine for energy and proper metabolism of carbohydrate
  • Pantothenic acid for enhanced stamina.
  • Folic Acid for mitochondrial protein synthesis
  • Vitamin B6 for red blood cell function, hormone regulation, niacin synthesis, and immune response.
  • B12 and niacin for enzyme function.

3. Vitamin C

​This super antioxidant is important as it helps neutralize free radicals and minimize inflammation in aging dogs. Cognitive decline can also be delayed among older pets through vitamin C supplementation.

4. Vitamin D

An important nutrient that facilitates healthy bone growth. This is important for senior pets and also young pups to ensure proper bone and muscle development and growth.

5. Vitamin E

​By taking vitamin E, pets have an excellent defense against the dangers of oxidative damage. Vitamin E is actually a powerful antioxidant. This is a fat-soluble vitamin that promotes good cell function as it plays a role in creating cell membranes. Eye degeneration is a typical problem with a deficiency in vitamin E.

6. Vitamin K

Another fat-soluble vitamin, this helps with healthy blood clotting. Hemorrhage is a common issue with dogs who do not receive the right amount of vitamin K. 

7. Choline

Choline helps develop a healthy phospholipid cell membranes. Your pet’s brain and liver health are also improved with choline supplements.

8. Glucosamine

​Great for joint health, glucosamine is important for pets who suffer from joint and muscle issues. Dogs diagnosed with arthritis can also benefit from glucosamine and ease their pain and discomfort.

9. Probiotics

​Just like with humans, probiotics support the healthy gut of your pet. This is why some pet owners give their dogs or cats kefir, although the dosage may not suffice when treating a bacterial infection in the gastrointestinal tract.

10. Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids

​Fish oil supplements help improve the joints, heart, immune system, coat, kidneys, and skin of your pets. DHA and EPA found in salmon oil also provide anti-inflammatory benefits to pets. Just be sure the supplement has been screened for PCBs and other contaminants to make sure they are free from heavy metals that can cause cancer to pets.

11. Multivitamins

​If your pet is not getting a balanced and healthy diet daily, supplementation with multivitamins can help. These should contain essential vitamins such as A, C, E, K, and B, which all support optimum health.

​Green Tripe as a Pet Supplement? Yay or Nay?

Some pets are given green trip as a supplement.

This is the lining in the stomach of a lamb or a cow, which is usually taken out during slaughtering. The food last ingested by the animal is still present in this so-called green tripe.

According to specialists, this portion of an animal contains amino acids that are not present in the same amount in other meats. These include essential fatty acids, good bacteria, and digestive enzymes.

​What Exercising Does to Your Emotions

What Happens When You Don’t Poop

When you exercise, your body releases endorphins in your brain, which are feel-good chemicals that give you that boost.

These happy chemicals are naturally released while you workout, but they also work on your behalf after your workout is over, effectively reducing depression and anxiety. 

These are the very same chemicals that help you manage pain when you are injured. This is why when you jog or take a brisk walk, your emotions will improve naturally.

2. A Feeling of Empowerment

Don’t you just love it when you get to check off things in your to-do list?

Being able to accomplish tasks can be quite empowering, and this is something that you can achieve when you exercise.

5. Meet New People

When you workout at the gym, there are like-minded people there who want to get healthy and happy just like you.

Or perhaps you’re at the park walking your dog, so both of you can get some exercise. Just being outside your home gives you an opportunity to meet new people. Folks you wouldn’t have met otherwise. 

People who work out with a buddy are shown to have more success. So does being in an environment where others are trying to achieve similar goals. 

So get out there and break a sweat!

How to Change the World and Leave Your Mark in 3 Important Ways

change the world

​How to Change the World and Leave Your Mark in 3 Important Ways

​Do you sometimes wonder if you could change the world and make it better?

Maybe you’re tired of all the racism going on, the hatred, the bigotry, the violence…

So it only makes perfect sense that you want to make a change in the world and hopefully turn things around and create peace, love, and understanding among people.

Sounds like one heck of a goal, isn’t it?

Well, if you want to make the world a better place, it’s absolutely possible. In fact, great thinkers, spiritual leaders, and average Joes and Janes like you and me can work together to make it happen.

It’s all about knowing how to do it, getting clear on the steps, and tackle things one after another.

If you want to change the world, keep reading, because I’ve got my two cents based on experience on how making a difference is 100% possible and doable.

Let’s begin!

​Can You Actually Change the World?

​YES, you definitely can change the world!

It’s not an impossible feat to accomplish and even if you’re not a political leader, you can contribute to the beautiful change that the world deserves.

If you can change and become a better version of yourself, inspire others to follow suit, and be consistent with the positive habits you’re doing, changing the world is very much doable.

It all begins with knowing where and how to begin...

​The First Thing To Do to Change the World

you can change the world

​All people, man or woman, child or adult, can make this change happen.

In fact, there is no such thing as more powerful or weaker when it comes to wanting to change the world.

The Dalai lama once said, “If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito”. Such a small creature can definitely make a massive difference in your skin!

So the crucial piece is in understanding and accepting the fact that you are NEVER powerless about changing the world.

You have everything within you to ignite a change and spread it to everyone around you… To the world at large.

By realizing that you’re more than capable of making a change, the next step is to start doing the work.

Real change begins in YOU.

​It All Begins Within You

​Surprise, surprise - if you want to change the world, you have to start inside of you.

Change is not something that the government can do for you.

It’s never going to happen through big businesses and massive corporations.

But change is only possible when you make an effort to actually change within yourself - your way of thinking, your habits, the way you deal with others.

And when you change your thoughts, become more optimistic, become more altruistic, become more selfless, you inevitably will change the world!

​Why Some People Fail in Changing the World

​Now, it is not always easy for some people to change the world.

They maybe have this strong desire to make a difference but end up bouncing back to their old ways, resulting to a failure in their attempts to change the world.

Why does this happen?

A few reasons.

​1. Inconsistency.

​When you really want to change the world, you need to be consistent with what you do.

You set your goals, create a plan, then you form habits that are in alignment with your goals.

If you want to see peace in this world, you have to be peaceful within yourself and how you relate with others.

You can’t yearn for peace when you are not in harmony with your own body, mind, and spirit. Or when you often get into conflict with the people around you.

So to achieve your goal of seeing less violence and more kindness in the world, practice those things in your daily life and in your daily interactions with others.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
Here today, gone tomorrow.

The goals you set, the habits you create need to be done regularly without fail.

You have to practice consistency with what you do instead of bouncing back to your old ways after a day or two or a week.

Sure, we all fail to be consistent sometimes but the effort must always be present if you really want to make a difference.

Catch yourself each time you are slowly leaning towards resisting that new, positive habit you are forming.

Awareness and mindfulness go a long way when you want to change yourself for the better and ultimately change the world.

set your goals

​2. No Clarity of Purpose.

​More often than not, people fail in their goal of changing the world when they are not very certain about their purpose.

Maybe they did not give it much thought as to why they even why to change the world or what kind of change they want to see.

So you have to be clear right from the start.

Undefined reasons why you want to change the world.

What kind of change do you wish to have in the world?

Why do you want to see that change?

Answer these questions from the heart and be sure you are certain about your goal. Once there’s clarity, the rest becomes more manageable and doable.

Jesus said, “One blind person can’t lead another blind person”, so if you want to lead the change, be that shining light with a clear purpose.

This is how you can influence and inspire others to make a change, as well.

​3. Lack of Commitment.

​Changing the world is a monumental task.

It is something that requires your 100% effort, time, and commitment.

This is why when you tell yourself that you want to make a difference, you have to be really committed to making it happen.
When failure hits, you give up too easily.

And when you’re committed, you have to keep doing it even when you hit speed bumps or stumbling blocks along the way.

Don’t give up and keep going toward your goal.

Nothing comes easy but nothing is impossible either.

So stay focused, stay committed, and your efforts will come into fruition.

​Three Things You Should Do to Change The World

​So now you know the reasons why people fail to change the world, let’s take a look at the core things you need to do to succeed in making a difference.

Here they are.

showing that you care

​1. Be empathetic.

​Empathy goes a LONG way in succeeding in your goal of changing the world.

You have to put yourself in other people’s shoes and feel their suffering.

Say, you want to decrease violence in your community, you wish people are more compassionate…

Then you have to empathize with those who are going through difficulties because they are victims of violence and injustice and lack of kindness from others.

If you know how it’s like to experience all of these, surely you would not want to be the bringer of all of these things to the world.

With empathy comes a positive change in the way you deal with yourself and with others.

​2. Prioritize doing good to others.

​What is your priority in life?

If you want to be a bringer of change, you need to prioritize goodness.

Positive things come from the kindness you do. Law of attraction, remember?

Others first, you only come second.

When your goal is to make a change, you should put the others’ needs ahead of your own.

The idea is to not always ask yourself how you can profit or benefit from what you’re doing. That is selfish and will not result to anything good.

Altruism is what can help you make a change.

Self-less, unconditional love and kindness, and serving others without ulterior motive can make a change, a positive change possible.

​3. Leave it better than you found it.

​This is one of the many things that I’ve learned from my grandfather as a kid.

To leave things better than I found them.

Always remember that you are here to make things better not to make things harder for people.

So always find a way to improve things, to make a situation better instead of worse.

This is why you have intellect and skills - for you to turn something beneficial using these things.

In everything you do, let it be for the greater good of humankind.

​What Happens When You Succeed in Changing the World?

​What Will Happened Next
Once you apply all of these things in your life and in how you relate with others, it is inevitable to witness a positive change in the world.

Kindness, selflessness, commitment… These will amount to a beautiful difference that you will see in the world.

So make an effort each day to stay focused on your goal of making things better because this is how you can create a change that you would like to witness.

​You are here for a greater purpose.

​Always keep in mind that you have a much bigger purpose in this world.

You are here to contribute your abilities for the betterment of everyone living on the planet - humans, animals, plants.

The intellect you posses and the skills you have, these are all tools that will make the world a much beautiful place to live in.

Internalize this fact and do your best to make each day much better than yesterday.

With that understanding, you will be able to live your days much fuller and more meaningful, and yes, much happier!

​Change Yourself First, Then the World!

change your self
Change is only possible when you set a goal and lay all the steps and actually take action.

So if your goal is to change the world, begin with yourself.

Your thoughts, words, intentions, and actions are very powerful tools that can create a lasting, beautiful change in the world.

Work towards improving yourself each day, and as you become consistent and committed to becoming that positive change you want to see in yourself, you will be able to influence others to make a difference in the world for the greater good of every creature on this planet.

Mitochondrial Health: 9 Ways to Help Mitochondria’s Anti-Aging Job

Mitochondria's Anti-Aging Job

Mitochondrial Health: 9 Ways to Help Mitochondria's Anti-Aging Job

What’s the best way to turn back the clock on your health? If you think that the only way to achieve anti-aging is through creams, lotions and surgery then you’re probably one of the millions of people chasing the white rabbit of health that can never quite be caught.

Good mitochondrial health is the secret to living a vibrant thriving and long life. This is a well kept secret that we’re going to expose today.

Rapid aging, disease and an overall feeling of poor health is caused by damage to your mitochondria. These little organelles are vital to your body’s cellular health. Yet, when a problem arises, it’s treated as if it’s a completely separate issue. But it all can be linked back to these damaged and dying systems.

We’re going to explore what exactly mitochondria is, how they work within your body and 9 ways that you can improve your mitochondrial health.

​What is Mitochondria?

You may have heard that mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cells, but what exactly does that mean?

Every cell in your body contains hundreds of mitochondria. These are “power converts”. Your stomach, heart, lungs, kidneys, and every other organ in your body needs nutrients from food to thrive.

Within the cell, mitochondria take these nutrients and convert them into energy that allows every single cell in your body to function properly. Mitochondria is responsible for synthesizing 90% of a cell’s chemical energy in the form of ATP. (1)

Need your heart to beat regularly? You have mitochondrial for that. Want to be able to get up out of a chair without it completely draining you? There’s mitochondria for that.

See, these little powerhouses are so absolutely critical for the health of your body. And guess what else these little guys are responsible for?

Proper cognitive function. (2)  We each have an even greater number of mitochondria within our brain cells.

When mitochondria are stressed or damaged, our mood, memory and concentration are affected. And because everything within the body is instructed what to do i.e the control center being the brain, a sick brain equals a sick body. 

Mitochondria Die Over Time...

Unfortunately, mitochondria are not immortal organelles in your body. They DO weaken and die. Without functioning mitochondria, what is going to nourish your cells?....

Well, the remaining mitochondria can still stay on the job and do their job but it’s like increasing work hours while decreasing employees. Eventually, EVERYTHING will crash and burn. In the human body, this takes time and we see this in the form of aging along with other physical symptoms.

Both environmental factors and lifestyle factors are responsible for mitochondrial damage and death. Are there signs that this is happening within your body?

Signs you Are Experiencing Mitochondrial Damage

​What Mitochondrial Damage is Like

You may experience chronic fatigue, rapid aging, poor memory, poor concentration, chronic illnesses, problems with sleep, mood disorders, issues with gut health, the list is pretty extensive.

The development of tumors is also caused by mitochondrial damage because mitochondria are also responsible for cell death. This is a normal process where your cells die and you get new ones to replace the old ones.

If the mitochondria aren’t working properly, they don’t “sweep out the house” so to speak and those old and damaged cells continue to grow, often resulting in tumors. (3)

This is why feeding the mitochondria and supporting mitochondrial health is so important.

There’s one more important factor that you should know about mitochondria before we explore ways to care for them.

​Youth and Mitochondria - What’s the Link?

Before you turn 28, you have the MOST amount of mitochondria in your body.

That’s why you notice your skin has less or virtually no wrinkles, you have boundless amounts of energy, and inflammation is the least of your worries.

But as the pages on the calendar turns, you begin to face the harsh reality of aging.

We all experience the decline in mitochondria production, but that’s okay. With the right knowledge you can capitalize the most on the ones you have and yes, healthy cells will lengthen your life. But better than that, you’ll feel younger longer.

Accelerators of Aging

If you have been depriving yourself of sleep, consume a lot of junk, ignore the need for fresh fruits and vegetables, are inactive and consume too much alcohol or other substances it’s going to be reflected inside and out.

The result? Wrinkles, fatigue, and inflammation.

You’ll start to feel sick frequently, your muscles and joints become inflamed, your annual physical tests don’t come out clean, reflecting that you aren’t as youthful as you once were.

If you’d like to watch some valuable information on Mitochondria Research click below!

Does Aging Come with… Age?

Here’s the thing…

Age is just a number. You age not because of the number of candles you blow but because of how you mistreat your mitochondria.

We can easily get caught up in this mindset of “Oh, I’m just old, that’s just the way it is”....

Nonsense! That’s just programming… I won’t get into that here but you are not destined to have mountains of medical bills and defeat to aging.

Even if you’re 45, if you’re taking care of your mitochondrial health, you’re going to reap the anti-aging benefits and you won’t have to deal with those “aging symptoms” that your contemporaries go through.

You’ll be the youngest looking 45 year old people know because your mitochondrial health is on check!

​Healthy Mitochondria = Younger Body

Age does not mean you should expect to develop “age-related” degenerative diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.

Just because you have more years under you belt doesn’t mean you HAVE to look and feel like you’ve lost your youth. You CAN stay youthful as ever with an excellent mitochondrial health.

And the best news of all?!

If you are sick or you are starting to see signs of sickness in your body, you can reverse it!

Below are simple and effective ways to reverse aging, and restore your body to a more youthful version of you.

​Powerful Ways to Achieve Mitochondrial Health and Reverse Aging

After reading this list you may find that you might need to make some serious lifestyle changes. It’s not easy to break a habit and create new ones but you can do it and your health and your life depends on it.

This list is synergistic, meaning that you can’t simply pick one thing off the list, you want to do as many of these things on the list as possible as they work together in harmony to create and environment of health in your body.

mitochondria anti-aging

1. Stay Hydrated

Water is not just a necessity when you’re thirsty.

Your body is made up of 60% water, so it is important to stay hydrated as your cells, tissues, organs, and your life depends on it.

We can live without food, (in fact IF has been proven to lead to longevity), but we can not live without water.

There is one MAJOR ISSUE  when it comes to water and the amount of water to drink in a day. You’ve heard “8 glasses a day”, this is a completely false recommendation.

How much water should you drink?

The goal is to drink half your body’s total weight in ounces.

If you weigh 100 pounds, divide that by two, it’s 50. You need to drink 50 ounces of water daily because that’s the right amount your body needs.

Although rare, if you drink too much water, this will cause water intoxication, ultimately flushing out your body’s electrolytes, responsible for transporting electrical signals in your body.  

Or what’s more common is dehydration which will cause feelings of sluggishness and creating a toxic soup within your body and  blood.

Without the proper hydration you can’t support your body’s need to eliminate waste and move things around. A precursor to disease or worse.

2. Eat a Balanced Diet

What’s on your plate each day? As the saying goes, you are what you eat. If you want to have a healthy, thriving body and mind for longer, it starts with the foods you eat.

There is such a thing as The Longevity Diet and it works! Check out the link to learn more and take back your health!

A diet that supports mitochondria and is anti-aging includes whole, fresh, organic foods.

The more colors on your plate, the better.

No matter what, your mitochondria are going to convert the foods you eat into chemical energy. A poor diet leads to (4) and an overload of free radicals. (The exhaust of the mitochondria).

Listen to your body when it comes to eating enough and make sure your diet is plentiful of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, nutrients, vitamins and minerals that your body needs to thrive.

Where your food comes from is also extremely important. If you can make the switch to organic (5), this will reduce the amount of free radicals in the body that cause the body to become toxic.

What else causes toxicity in the body?

S​kip the Preservatives and Processed Foods!! 

Preservatives! I once heard from a gentleman that by eating preservatives his body would last longer. That’s like saying when you’re sick you should drink alcohol to “disinfect” yourself.

Of course this is an absurdity but what’s the big deal about preservatives anyway?

These are chemicals added to foods to keep their shelf life longer. They do not have any nutritional value and cause serious harm to your health. This includes A.D.H.D in children and adults, increased risk of cancer, allergies to foods, increased risk of heart disease, weight gain and so much more.

Meanwhile, these same foods often contain high amounts of processed sugars and flours that burn out your pancreas and lead to numerous health complications including type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease. (6)

Processed foods are stripped of their nutritional value and sold to you as a convenience….

Please, for mitochondrial sake, skip the preservatives and processed foods.

3. Take Mitochondrial Supplements

We all know that our planet is having some environmental issues and the food industry is being exposed for their dirty little cost saving techniques that you pay for with your health.

But what’s up with this supplement craze?

First off, there is no need to run off and buy up all the supplements you can find. You want to become educated about supplements, why you need them and how to find the right supplement for you.

But there is merit behind the need for supplements. Our soils are being stripped of their nutrients and minerals and being doused with three main ingredients. Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium.

These are great to grow plants and produce flowers on fruit and vegetable crops but this limitation is causing inadequate human nutrition. (7)

Pair that with the stripping of processed foods and you have a huge population of rapidly aging, sick individuals.

Your Mitochondria Need Supplements, Too!

This is where mitochondrial supplements come in, which provide the nutrients and antioxidants your mitochondria need that are not obtained from your regular diet.

The two most important antioxidants that support mitochondrial health are Co-enzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acids. These are food for your mitochondria that ensure bio-genesis of the renewal and growth of mitochondrial cells. (8)

Currently, this is one of those hush hush remedies, so I understand there isn’t a lot of options out there available even though the research on mitochondrial health is extensive.

I’ll leave some information at the end so you can have some resources to learn more about Mitochondria Supplements.

4. Get at Least 7 Hours of Sleep Each Night

sleep each night

Sleep has the potential to restore your health. Do you ever wonder what happens when you sleep and why we need it in the first place?

Sleep is nature’s way of giving our bodies time to heal. When you sleep your body is able to focus on the task of restoration and also flushes toxins out of your system.

Without enough sleep you are compromise your immune system leaving your more susceptible to getting sick.

Day time naps are beneficial to your body as well, improving memory and concentration, mood and more. Just a 20-30 min nap a day can help you effectively re-energize yourself without the caffeine!

Not Getting Enough Sleep Ages You

Not getting enough sleep causes all sorts of health problems. Not only does it age you MUCH FASTER but it causes issues with the immune system, heart, digestion and overall healing.

People who are sleep deprived are more likely to experience extreme stress, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular problems, mental fog, impaired memory and make untimely mistakes that can lead to death.

Make sure to cherish bed time, your health depends on it.

5. Stay Physically Active

mitochondria and exercise

It’s common knowledge that exercise is good for you. But do you know why?

  • Increases muscle mass and makes for stronger, thicker bones

  • Boosts immune system

  • Improves cognitive abilities

  • Makes you happier

  • Increases energy levels

  • Reduces the risk of chronic diseases

  • Helps with sleep

These are just a few things exercise is good for but did you know physical activity also prevents cellular aging? .

A study published in Cell Metabolism done by Dr. Sreekumaran Nair showed that exercise encourage cells to make more RNA copies of genes that code for mitochondrial proteins. (9)

These are genes that are responsible for muscle growth. In addition, it also increased the ability of ribosomes to build mitochondrial proteins, something your mitochondria “eat”.

It Does Not Have to Be a Gym Membership.

When you think of exercise, you might automatically think of the gym or lifting weights.

On the contrary, walking for 30 mins a day, (brisk walking is even better), is sufficient to get the health benefits of exercise while keeping it low impact.

The goal is to elevate your heart rate for at least 20-30 mins a day. (10)

If you’d like to hit the gym or join a yoga class, go for it!! Just don’t feel like you HAVE to get into bodybuilding to reap the health benefits of exercise.

The more active the better. Stretch, dance, garden, walk, stand instead of sitting at your desk, just get up and get moving!

6. Manage Stress

Stress is a major aging trigger.

When you’re stressed out, you just feel your body is contracting, your heartbeat is going faster, and sleep is… Well, forget about sleeping because your worries have the ability to keep you awake at night.

In other words, stress is what causes you to lose sleep, eat junk, lose the motivation to exercise, and these all make you feel old, tired, and sick.

You have to realize and accept the fact that stress is an inevitable part of life. There will always be stressors whether you’re 15 or 50, married with kids or living alone, an empty nester or with toddlers in the house.

But you CAN take a stand and get ahead of these stressors.

Check out this video on 3 Tips to Take Off the Pressure in Life!

Mind Over Stress.

Potential for stress is all around us. But what can make or break your youth and your health is how you perceive those stressors and how you handle overall stress.

When everything is overwhelming, it can be tempting to turn to destructive habits. Drinking, drugs, screen time, late night snacking. The first thing that has to become a priority in your life is learning how to manage your stress.

Ask yourself the question: Are Your Thoughts Helping or Hurting You? Because the truth is that  Your Thoughts Affect Your Health Positively and Negatively.

Mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and even watching a funny movie can help you de-stress and decompress.

Make it a habit to allot a couple of hours each day to de-stress and your mitochondria will thank you for it.

7. Stay Away From Alcohol, and Drugs.

The known effects of excessive use of alcohol are:

  • Cardiomyopathy

  • Stroke

  • High Blood Pressure

  • Arrhythmias

  • Fibrosis of the Liver

  • Cirrhosis of the Liver

  • Fatty Liver

  • Inflammation and swelling of the pancreas

  • Cancer

  • Weakened immune system (11)

The overuse of alcohol will age you quickly and kill of your healthy cells.

On top of alcohol, there’s the drug epidemic. I’m sure you’ve read a lot about street drugs and it’s nothing to sneeze at. I want to also mention prescription drugs.

Prescription drugs is the 3rd leading cause of death for Americans….

That’s insane. And I know this is a delicate topic, so I don’t say any of this lightly.

But that pain medicine your doctor gave you to cover up a root health problem, or that pill given to your college student or child for A.D.D... These are killing Americans more quickly than car accidents. (12)

I encourage you to approach your health from a holistic point of view and uncover the truth about health and wellness.

8. Increase your intake of resveratrol-rich food.

Resveratrol supports your health while slowing down the aging process.

It is also an important material that helps fight diseases, strengthen your immune system, and reverse various ailments.

With all of these amazing benefits of resveratrol, it makes perfect sense to consume food rich in this material to support mitochondrial health.

According to a study published in the Biomedicines Journal in the US National Library of Medicine “Resveratrol possesses a wide range of biological properties, among them antioxidant, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities” (13)

That’s pretty incredible! So where does it come from and how can you get it into your diet?

Foods Containing Small Amounts of Resveratrol  

Foods that contain resveratrol include:

  • Grapes

  • Blueberries

  • Dark chocolate

  • Pistachios

  • Cacao

  • Red wine

  • Peanuts

Consuming foods that contain resveratrol is an excellent way to boost health and support your mitochondria, however foods do contain only a small amount.

One thing you can do to increase your intake of resveratrol is take it as a supplement.

Time Challenger Resveratrol is a favorite among the Time Challenger Products and comes with 120 capsules.

With the combination of environmental stressors, nutritional stressors and physical stressors it’s no wonder that so many people are sick and the rate of aging is speeding up. 

These 8 steps will greatly improve your mitochondrial health, allowing them to do their job keeping you younger and healthier.

Earlier I mentioned supplements for mitochondrial health. I talked about how mitochondrial supplements help you slow down the aging process while minimizing your risk of developing age-related diseases.

End Gum Problems: Inflamed, Swollen and Sore Gum Home Remedies

Painful swollen gums

​End Gum Problems: Inflamed, Swollen and Sore Gum Home Remedies

Bothered with that painful swelling of your gums?

Swollen gums are never fun. It gets really painful each time you brush your teeth, your gums bleed easily, and chewing food can be a nightmare, especially if your food hits the affected area.

Good thing there are things you can do to prevent swollen gums and also to treat this problem.

How?

Keep reading to learn more about the different ways - natural ways - to get rid of gum problems safely and effectively.

​What Causes Swollen Gums or Inflamed Gums

​Oral health does not only include your teeth but also your gums, too.

In fact, when your gums are healthy, your teeth are healthy.

But when you are suffering from swollen, inflamed gums, the affected teeth may start to hurt. In some cases, infected, inflamed gums can even cause you to lose your tooth!

When you have swollen gums, they tend to bulge out or protrude. They may even hide some parts of the teeth.

​What Causes Swollen Gums or Inflamed Gums

​Causes of Swollen Gums

With gingival swelling, your gums become painful or irritated. Then it becomes very difficult to brush your teeth or floss without spitting out a bunch of blood because of your bruised, bleeding gums.

But what really causes swollen gums? Here are some of the reasons behind inflamed gums.

​Gingivitis

This is the main culprit behind the swelling of your gums.

This gum disease causes the irritation and swelling, and when left unaddressed, tooth loss and periodontitis may occur eventually.

The tough part is that most people are not even aware they’re suffering from gingivitis because of mild symptoms.

Poor oral health and hygiene causes gingivitis. When you fail to take care of your teeth and gums, plaque starts to build up on your gum line and also on your teeth. This film contains food particles and bacteria that deposit on your teeth.

Wait longer before you get the plaque out, and it will soon become tartar. Now that’s something you can never remove by brushing or flossing. It is something that requires a professional to do it, and if yu wait a little longer, you are at risk of gingivitis.

​Malnutrition

Gum swelling can also occur because of a vitamin deficiency.

For instance, being deficient in vitamin C can increase your chances of developing scurvy, which can eventually lead to a gum disease.

This is why you should make sure you are getting enough vitamin C daily. Eat plenty of green leafy vegetables and fruits, and you can also take vitamin C supplements to receive the required amount of this vitamin if you are not receiving it from your diet.

getting enough vitamin C daily

​Infection

Infections that are viral or fungal in form can lead to swollen gums.

A medical condition called thrush, for example, is due to an overgrowth of yeast that is naturally occuring in your mouth. This disease can also cause your gum to swell.

Dental decay that is left untreated can also cause an infection, which can then result to a dental abcess or a localized swelling of your gums.

​Issues with Your Gut

How healthy is your gut?

Did you know that having a weak gut puts you at higher risk of infection and also swollen gums?

Your gut affects your immune system, so if it is weak, this reduces your body’s ability to fight off infection that can cause swelling of the gums. This is particularly true if the infection is in your gum or oral cavity.

​Can You Treat Painful Swollen Gums Overnight?

Now that you know the different causes of swollen gums, you must be wondering -

Is it possible to treat painful swollen gums overnight?

It depends on the cause and other underlying factors that result to a swelling.

You can relieve the pain but treating it completely and putting your gums back to a normal condition is not possible.

The treatment process can take some time, and it also depends on how well your body reacts to the treatment.

But what I can recommend is to perform some home treatment for swollen gums that can help improve the state of your gums and eventually heal the swelling.

​What Can You Do for Inflamed Gums without Medication

​What Can You Do for Inflamed Gums without Medication

​Speaking of home remedies for swollen gums…

You can perform basic steps to address an inflamed gum.

For the most part, practice good oral care daily, after meals. Brush and floss regularly, and you can also gargle with salt and water.

I particularly recommend that you gargle with a colloidal silver mixture, which I will discuss in detail below.

It is also important that you avoid irritants to your gums such as tobacco, alcohol, and strong mouthwashes.

Another thing that can help with the pain and swelling is warm compress on your face, placed over the affected area. This works for gum pain while cold compress helps minimize the swelling.

If you have tartar, it is important that you schedule a dental appointed to get your teeth cleaned. This way, you can prevent future episodes of swollen gums.

​How Do You Get Rid of Inflamed Gums Naturally?

Let’s talk about the different things you can do to treat swollen gums while at the same time decreasing your risks of gingival inflammation in the future. Here are four things you can do.

Take resveratrol

I recommend that you start taking at least 600 milligrams to 1200 milligrams of resveratrol each day.

This material is very potent in fighting off infection by boosting your immune system. And as your immune system becomes stronger, this also helps reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process of a swollen gum.

​​Stay hydrated

Hydration is not just an important thing to do when you’re thirsty or you do physical activities.

Drinking water is also beneficial for keeping your gums healthy. It washes away toxins in your body and refreshes you.

I advise that you drink water that is half of your weight in ounces.

So if you weight 100 pounds, you should drink 50 ounces of water daily.

​Do oil pulling

Have you ever tried oil pulling?

If you haven’t tried oil pulling yet, I highly recommend that you do.

I would use organic coconut oil, warm it up properly and use that twice a day, morning and evening and along with the colloidal silver.

Simply gargle this mixture in your mouth and spit it out to remove impurities and strengthen your gums and teeth at the same time.

Gargle with colloidal silver

Colloidal silver is your best ally against swollen gums.

For swollen gums,I would use a mixture of 50% colloidal silver, say about 20 parts per million and something that will be similar to the hydrogen peroxide that’s actually a really great mouthwash.

I've had really great success in people using that three times a day and holding it in their mouth as long as they possibly can and then spitting it out.

Do this daily for best and quick results.

​Proactive Things You Can Do to Prevent Swollen Gums

If you don’t have swollen gums, great for you!

But you should make an effort to be proactive and perform certain steps to prevent inflammed gums from causing you problems in the future.

Here are things you can do to protect yourself against nasty swollen gums.

​Brush your teeth regularly.

​Brush your teeth regularly.

This is not even debatable.

Poor oral hygiene leads to gum swelling, so you should make an effort to keep your teeth, tongue, and gums clean and healthy.

Brush after meals and use a good toothpaste that can eliminate bacterial and prevent plaque buildup.

​Floss

It is not enough that you brush your teeth.

You also need to floss since there are food particles that get stuck in between teeth that end up forming into a plaque when left unaddressed.

Floss daily and gum swelling should be the least of your problems!

​Mind your diet

Your diet affects your health.

Garbage in, garbage out, remember?

So eat nutritious food, consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and stay away from sugary, very sour, and salty foods. The more alkaline your food is, the healthier it is for your body.

​Boost your immune system

Take your vitamin C, supplement daily with resveratrol, follow a healthy diet.

These are habits that all contribute to a healthy, thriving immune system.

With a strong immune system, you can fight off infections naturally and make you less susceptible to diseases caused by virus and bacteria.

​Keep your gut healthy

Since we’re in the topic of boosting your immune system...

To get the immune system boosted, one of the best things you can do is immediately start 100 billion units of probiotics for your improvement of your gut bacteria and at least 30 strains of bacteria that are part of that hundred billion. And get started on that.

I've had a lot of success from people who tell me almost within a week, they start to feel better all over because they start being regular with their bowel movement.

With your body clear of toxins and wastes, this makes your body stronger in fighting inflammations such as swollen gums.

Painful Swollen Gums and Unhealthy Gut

Painful Swollen Gums and Unhealthy Gut - What is the Link?

A weak gut can cause swollen gums.

How?

Just the fact that your body’s elimination system is compromised means you have more toxins lingering in your body.

When you have a higher percentage of bad bacteria in your body and not enough good bacteria to fight them, this puts you at risk of various diseases…

And it includes gum swelling and infection.

So I would recommend that you take good care of your gut by regularly supplementing yourself with probiotics.

You can take probiotic capsules or drink kombucha, kefir, eat yogurt, sauerkraut, and other foods that contain probiotics to strengthen your immune system, prevent infection, and give you overall health and well-being.

​Conclusion

Swollen gums is a nightmare.

But the good news is that there are preventive measures you can take and also natural treatment you can do to get rid of swollen gums.

By staying hydrated, keeping your gut healthy, performing good oral hygiene, and following a healthy diet, swollen gums can be prevented and treated without the use of medication.

Try these steps and techniques I have shared with you today, and I wish you great health always. Be well!

Here’s to a more youthful YOU!!

​​What is the Cause of Aging?

​​Before we talk about anti aging supplements, let us first discuss aging.

What exactly is the cause of aging?

Throughout your life, your cells take a massive beating from various elements. It could be an unhealthy diet, smoking, excessive alcohol intake, and too much exposure to ultraviolet rays. Other factors include lack of sleep, stress, and environmental factors or pollution.

With an exposure to all of these for a long period of time, these can cause damages to your cells’ DNA. When left unaddressed, you become more at risk of cancer, heart disease, and other ailments.

You see, there are telomeres in your body. These are stretches of your DNA at the end of your chromosome. Think of telomeres as the plastic caps at the tip of your shoelaces.

With every cell division that takes place, the telomeres also stretch out and become shorter.

Once the cut-off point has been reached, your telomeres becomes shorter and shorter. In fact, the length of your telomeres indicates your biological age. Shorter telomeres means premature aging in humans.

But it is not only the stretching of your telomeres that impacts your aging… There is another thing that affects it, and we discuss it further below.
​What is the Cause of Aging

​​Your Mitochondria and Aging

Your body requires the right amount of nutrients to ensure its optimum health including youth.

But did you know that as you age, the amount of mitochondria in your body decreases?

These are organelles inside every cell in your body. There are billions of these organelles, and one by one, they die and bring you closer and closer to aging.

However, the good news is that you can restore your mitochondria. Once lost, that does not mean you can never revive them.

In fact, mitochondria are capable of reproducing, much like bacteria, which undergo asexual reproduction and cell division.

By simply feeding your mitochondria with the right nutrients, this helps restore them and ensure you of a longer, healthier life.

The right anti aging supplements that contain the best “mitochondria food” can definitely help slow down the aging process, so you can hold on to your youth longer.

​​What are Anti-Aging Supplements?

When you hear the word “anti-aging supplements”, perhaps you think of vitamins and minerals that smooth away fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

Maybe you also think of vitamins that boost your energy levels and make you look younger than you really are.

But more than the physical appearance, anti aging supplements offer several other benefits such as

  • Stronger bones and muscles
  • Improved energy levels
  • Smoother and clearer skin
  • Better vision
  • Greater skin elasticity
  • Enhanced heart health
  • Reduced muscle and joint pain
  • Increased immune function

​These are the things anti aging supplements do… And more! It is just a matter of choosing the right products to buy to make sure you really get the best out of these supplements.

​And so much more!

I will discuss these supplements further in the next sections, so you can have a better understanding of what they do to your body and overall health.

​​Is It Safe to Take Anti Aging Tablets?

The rule of thumb when taking anti aging supplements is to make sure these are safe for you as much as they are effective.

For the most part, these supplements can be quite pricey. Some don’t even offer any effects, or at least it would take time before you noticed anything different in your body.

As for other tablets that claim to anti-age you, they may even cause some side effects that can do more harm than good to your health. This is really a big risk to take, as you are exposing your body to potential risks that you may only regret in the long run.

Exercise caution before buying an anti-aging supplement in the market.

You need to really know what you are looking for and what to stay away from. So be sure to do your homework and ask a medical professional to make sure you’re not putting your health at risk.

But alongside taking anti aging tablets, you should also incorporate a healthy, wholesome lifestyle that will help you achieve of slowing down aging. Get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night, follow a balanced diet, quit smoking, avoid excessive alcohol consumption, exercise daily, and manage stress.

There’s nothing more natural and more effective to slowing aging down than a healthy daily routine to accompany your intake of anti aging supplements!

​​Best Anti Aging Supplements on the Market

​Vitamin E

​Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that works by fighting free radicals and protecting your cells from damages due to oxidative stress. It also helps improve your eye health, giving you a natural protection against vision loss.

By combining this vitamin with other powerful nutrients, this can support not only good vision but also healthy, supple skin. 

​Coenzyme Q10

​CoQ10 is commonly found in anti aging supplements as this compound helps energize and regenerate your cells. Although you get natural CoQ10 that your body produces, the supply becomes less and less as you age.

This is why some people supplement with this material to slow down aging. There is CoQ10 that is applied topically such as in night creams and wrinkle creams while others take it is capsule form to boost their energy and stamina during workouts.

​Acetyl L-Carnitine

​Popularly called as carnitine, this substance helps feed your mitochondria that tend to decline in number as you get older. By fueling up your mitochondria, carnitine helps promote healthy liver, good bone density, and muscle retention.

It also eliminates cellular wastes or debris efficiently, which is important in slowing down the aging process. Other benefits that ALC offers include a reduction in inflammation, enhanced brain function, increased physical energy, and better blood circulation.

​Vitamin D

​Although it is a naturally occurring vitamin, you will need to take supplements if you do not get enough of this vitamin from food and sunlight. What it does is it slows down the death of cells, keep your skin youthful, and assist in the proper neuromuscular functions.

Vitamin B12

You need vitamin B12 to keep your body full of vibrance, radiance, and youthfulness. It also converts the glucose you get from food into fuel for more energy.

If you are not getting enough vitamin B12 in your body, you may be susceptible to fatigue, dizziness, and just a general feeling of weakness. 

Alpha Lipoleic Acid

Alpha Lipoleic Acid or ALA is essential in regenerating the glutathione, the “major” antioxidant in your body. It is important in keeping your liver, kidneys, skin, eyes, and nerves healthy.

Glutathione - A Powerful Anti Aging Substance??

As I have stated earlier, the glutathione is the most potent antioxidant that is naturally present in your body. But as you age, this component in your body decline in its level. So you will need to take supplements that restores the supply of glutathione in the body. ALA is one of these supplements, along with CoQ10, vitamins E and C.

Taking ALA does the following:

  • Helps cleanse your cells of toxins and heavy metals
  • Reduces your risk of a lung ailment
  • Protects your cells from damages caused by free radicals
  • Keeps your mitochondria nourished and healthy
  • Improves nerve function
  • Slows down the progression of degenerative diseases

And so much more!

Vitamin B1

vitamin b1 from beef

Thiamine or B1 is important in cellular metabolism. It maintains the health of your digestive tract, keep your heart healthy, and promote thriving nerve muscles. This is an essential anti aging supplement because it maintains the health of your brain and nerves. 

By taking this supplement, this prevents damages caused by free radicals to your eyes while preventing depression, muscle fatigue, and memory loss. 

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 is essential for your health and for slowing down aging because it keeps your nervous system healthy, fights infections, and regulates the homocysteine levels in your body that reduces your risks of a stroke and heart disease.

By getting the right amount of B6 in your body daily, this keeps your body and mind healthy while keeping you youthful.

DHEA

DHEA is coined as a superhormone as it is designed to slow down the aging process. It is actually a steroid hormone naturally present in your body as it is produced by your adrenal glands.

But if your body is not producing ample DHEA, supplementing can be done by taking products containing this substance. Mostly, DHEA supplements are made from chemicals sourced from soybeans and wild yams. 

Resveratrol

This polyphenol contains anticarcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can be found in various foods such as the skin of grapes, berries, and also present in red white.

It is believed to activate the SIRT1 gene, and this is responsible for cellular longevity. This is why it is not surprising to find anti aging supplements that contain this substance.

How to Choose the Best Organic Soap for Your Body

​How to Choose the Best Organic Soap for Your Body

How to Choose the Best Organic Soap for Your Body

How sure are you that your current soap is actually good for your skin?

Unless it’s organic soap, you might as well toss your old soap out. You’re not doing your health any favor by using it over and over.

So what’s the best organic soap to use?

And why should you even use organic soap?

Keep reading and you’ll never think of using any bath soap except for homemade, natural, organic soap!

What’s the Best Soap for Your Skin?

There are hundreds of bath soap ads you can find all around you.

These all claim to be the best for your skin but the question is – what kind of soap should you buy that is actually good and beneficial to your body?

First of all, let’s take a look at what your skin does and how the soap you use impacts your health.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body. It absorbs every single thing it comes in contact with – the air you breathe, the water you use for bathing, and all the components that your soap has.

Can you imagine the dangers you’re putting your skin and essentially your health into when you use soap that contains nasty chemicals in it?

You’re unintentionally feeding your skin and your body with toxins!

This is why the only best soap to use for your body is one that is organic and made from healthy, safe, and natural ingredients.

None of those dyes, artificial fragrances, and hazardous chemicals that wreak havoc to your health.

Organic soap, particular handmade soap with all-natural ingredients is the best and safest soap for your skin. And here’s why…

​Is Organic Soap Good For You?

​Is Organic Soap Good For You?

People with sensitive skin don’t respond well to soaps loaded with chemicals.

They end up suffering from rashes, skin irritation, redness, and itching. It’s definitely not worth subjecting your body to all of these nasties.

These are common with soaps that have irritants in them, chemicals that are too strong for your skin to handle. In fact, these shouldn’t be on your skin at all because they don’t serve any purpose to your health!

On the other hand, organic soap ingredients are free from chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and other additives that harm your body.

These soaps also do not have glycerin, or a kind of moisturizing agent that can cause your skin to become dry, itchy, and unhealthy.

Organic Soap Ingredients

So the question is, what does organic soap contain?

If you read the label, you will notice two things – that organic soap contains natural ingredients, and the ingredients are pesticide-free.

To give you a clearer idea on what exactly you’re feeding your body when you use organic soap, here’s a look at the different ingredients typical of this kind of soap:

Natural Moisturizers

Instead of using chemicals to “moisturize” your skin, organic soap contains herbs and natural oils that help keep your skin soft, smooth, and moisturized.

These include aloe, olive oil, coconut oil, essential oils, and unrefined African shea butter.

Sometimes, handmade natural soap may contain just one type of natural oil while others may be a combination of different essential oils.

Just be sure to check if the oils used are from a sustainable source and 100% organic to ease your worries about toxins being present in the soap.

Natural Exfoliants

Organic Soap Ingredients

Exfoliants help reveal a glowing, healthy, and smooth skin underneath.

This is why it would be good to find an organic soap with natural exfoliants to scrub away dead and unhealthy skin cells to bring out the radiant skin that glows naturally.

Common exfoliants you can find in natural soaps include oats and Moroccan red clay.

Natural Fragrances

Unscented soaps from organic sources are great for you since you can be sure that no harsh fragrances are used in the soap. But if you prefer your soap to have a hint of fragrance, then you should go for one made from natural ingredients.

Some of these natural fragrances are obtained from peppermint, rose petals, cinnamon, lavender, sage, and jasmine.

Not only are these healthy for your skin but these add a hint of fragrance to your soap that lingers in your body.

Is It Organic Soap or Not?

Some soaps are labeled as organic, but you still have to be cautious of the ingredients.  

You need to check the label and read it carefully to be sure that your soap is indeed organic and natural.

Stay away from soaps that contain additives such as SLS, parabens, glycerine, and surfactants that cause irritation to your skin. These materials are so harsh that they are even used for cleaning the grease and dirt from car engines!

Your skin is no way comparable to a car engine, obviously – so why use a soap that’s intended for that purpose??

Conventional bath soaps contain a slew of harsh chemicals that irritate and damage your skin.

Stay away from these and read labels carefully to eliminate these risks.

​Organic Soap Benefits – What You Can Get from using Natural Soap?

​Organic Soap Benefits

By choosing organic soap over conventional soap, you are getting all of these benefits:

1. Beautiful Skin

No longer will you need to suffer the risk of using chemical-laden soaps for your skin.

Organic soap keeps your skin healthy, which is evident in smooth, clear, and radiant skin.

Colloidal Silver Uses During the Ancient Times and Over the Years

Colloidal Silver Uses During the Ancient Times and Over the Years

Here are pieces of evidence that there is nothing new about the use of silver, which takes us back hundreds of years ago.

Ancient Greece

In Ancient Greece, people retained the freshness of water, wine, and other liquids by using silver vessels like jugs, jars, and sealed containers.

Roman Empire

Silver urns were used in Ancient Rome to store wine as this type of container prevents spoilage.

Middle Ages

The wealthy people believed that it was their silverware that protected them from the pangs of the plague during the Middle Ages.

Australia and the U.S

In Australia, the people suspended silverware such as silver spoons in the water tanks to keep the liquid fresh.

Pioneers who trekked for months in the American West placed silver coins in water containers to protect their drinking water from algae, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms.

India

Ayurveda, the oldest, natural medicine system in India, includes the use of small amounts of silver in various healing herbs and tonics. Silver served as a rejuvenating agent or elixir for sick individuals.

In addition to all of these, colloidal silver was regarded as a bactericide hundreds of years before antibiotics were created. Hospitals used colloidal silver to treat patients suffering from a bacterial and viral infection for over 1000 years.

So you see – there is nothing new to colloidal silver. It’s been the go-to natural medicine ages and ages ago, and its benefits remain to be true even up to this modern day!

How Much Colloidal Silver to Take When Sick?

How Much Colloidal Silver to Take When Sick

Now that you know about the history of colloidal silver as natural medicine, let’s talk about colloidal silver dosages.

Colloidal Silver Dosage for Colds and Upper Respiratory Infection

If you are suffering from colds, cough, and other infections in the upper respiratory system, I advise that you take 3 to 4 ounces of colloidal silver daily.

Do this until the infection is gone and there is no longer any symptoms.

Ear Infections Caused by Bacteria

Using antibiotics often come with nasty side effects, so if you want a natural medicine for ear infections, colloidal silver is good for that.

Simply place a few drops of colloidal silver in the ear. This is what I’ve done to my children when they suffer from ear infections, and in a day or two, the infections are completely gone.

And yes, no side effects or long term bad effects on the health.

Colloidal Silver Dosage for Staph Infection, UTI, Candida, Herpes, Etc.

For any type of infection including Candida, Herpes, Staph, and even urinary tract infection, colloidal silver is an excellent natural treatment that works best for these ailments.

Mix in 2 ounces of collodial silver juice or water. Do this 2 times a day. Then, drink this mixture daily until the infections are gone.

Sinus Infections, Seasonal Allergies, Hay Fever

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies, hay fever, pollen allergy, and the like?

Or are you prone to sinus infections?

Forget those nasty pills and nasal sprays that contain steroids and other chemicals that lead to serious long-term effects on your body.

Colloidal silver is a natural and effective treatment for sinus infections and seasonal allergies.

My wife had severe sinus infections for many years until she started using colloidal silver for her sinuses. The last 5 to 7 years, she had absolutely no sinus infections because the colloidal silver completely healed her from it!

What she does is simply fill up a nasal spray with colloidal silver and half with saline nasal spray, then spray it inside her nose 2 or more times daily.

I also have created a potent tincture made from colloidal silver and other natural ingredients to treat seasonal allergies and hay fever. The result is phenomenal, according to my clients who have tried this product.

Not only did the symptoms go away but their seasonal allergies were gone for good!

Most importantly, there were zero side effects at all and no more coming back of those allergies because the body’s immune system became stronger and is no longer under attack by those allergens.

Colloidal Silver Vs. Ionic Silver

I mentioned earlier that there is TRUE colloidal silver and one that you shouldn’t mess with, which is ionic silver.

When we talk about true colloidal silver, this means that there are 20 to 25 parts per million of silver.

Colloidal silver contains nanoparticles of complete metallic silver, and these components do not mix or merge with the other elements or with each other.

On the other hand, ionic silver is missing one electron. When it misses an electron, this ionic silver transforms into silver chloride once it enters the body due to the sodium chloride (salt) supply inside of you. This is also the reason why people who consume highly concentrated ionic silver turn blue, which is a disease called agyria. This skin discoloration is permanent and irreversible. The blood has actually become photosensitive.

But true colloidal silver contains 20 to 25 parts per million, which is just what is safe for your body and effective in treating bacterial and even viral infections.

If you want to get authentic colloidal silver that is safe and effective for treating infections, I highly recommend the Time Challenger Colloidal Advantage Silver that I make available to my clients.
