Secret Anti Aging Fountain Of Youth Discovered In South America

The quest for Eternal Youth has been fraught with disappointment and false claims since modern civilization began hundreds of years ago. Looking for the Fountain of Youth has led humans to the every corner of the earth in the hopes of discovering that tonic which will reverse the pains and inflammation of old age, tighten sagging skin and wrinkles and provide an abundance of vibrant youthful energy.

This quest has led to the introduction of plastic surgery, which undoubtedly tightens up the epidermis, but at a great price, not only financially, costing thousands of dollars, but in self-esteem. Rather than feeling more youthful, many people have reported that after surgery they felt as if people looked at them differently, judging them and looking down upon them. This is simply due to the fact that plastic surgery artificially pulls skin and quite literally looks Artificial. This can cause a lifetime of trauma for someone who looks in the mirror everyday.

And of course there have been many herbs and roots claiming age reversal properties such as Alpha Lipoic Acid in the roots of Japanese Villagers or Fruits like the Acai berry from Brazil so recently over publicized. As potent as these discoveries may be, they unfortunately have never been scientifically linked to an actual Fountain of Youth.

That was up until 1973 years ago when a region Deep into the heart of the rainforest, high in the Andes Mountains called the Vilcabamba Valley was discovered and publicized by scientists. Vilcabamba is known as the Land of the Centenarians, where 1 in 64 people live to be over 100 years of age (as compared to 1 in 7,000 in the US). Scientists have studied the people living in this remote village for decades. According medical journalist Dr. Morton Walker, The Vilcabambans are some of the healthiest people on earth.

In 1973, Dr. Alexander Leaf of Harvard Medical School introduced these remarkable people to the world for the first time in his cover story for National Geographic Magazine. In 1981, the Ecuadorian government hired medical journalist Dr. Morton Walker to study these people in depth. In his book, The Secret to a Youthful Long Life, Dr. Walker reported that his research showed that the mineral rich water that the Vilcabambans drank was key to their long lives and health. Laboratory analysis of the Vilcabamba water determined that the unique balance of minerals in the local drinking water was ideal for promoting optimum human health. Additional research showed that the Vilcabambans diet of Anti-Oxidant rich fruits from the region were another significant contributor to their remarkable good health and longevity.

Why are the fruits, roots and water in this region better than any other in the world? If you look a the geographic location of Vilcabamba, its located near the equator where the suns rays are very powerful. In order to protect themselves, the fruits grow thicker and darker skins, which translates as: more anti-oxidants and vitamins. These are the scientifically proven master blasters to age reversal.

So potent are the anti-oxidants that these same fruits, roots and mineral water that allow the Vilcabambans to live youthfully past 100 have now been bottled as an Anti-Aging Youth Tonic and given a seal from Brunswick laboratories in the USA for consistently high anti-oxidant activity. This while products like Mona Vie, Xango and Goji have all failed at their attempts to gain such a Seal of Approval.

With benefits way beyond anti-aging such as the increase of Energy from the Mineral Water, relief from Diabetes, Arthritis, Back Pain and Heart Disease, this could be the closest thing weve seen to a real live Fountain Of Youth on our planet.

So where does one go to get a bottle of this Fountain of Youth Tonic from Vilcabamba. Read more at the link in the resource box from your author.

stressmeterStress is perhaps the number 1 cause of health problems in the 21th century. Stress related diseases are on the rise. In fact, it’s estimated that almost 90% of the mental and physical illnesses are originated from stress. It’s an alarming statistics. It seems like the more advanced we get the more stress we have.

Lets look at six ways to deal with the stress in our life in a healthy and effective manner.

1. Talk about your problems with your loved ones, your family and closed friends. If you’re currently living alone for some reason, get out of your house and look for friends, join a group or gym, learn to live life! Don’t bottle up your problems, they will become a time bomb and difficult to deal with as time goes by.

2. Exercise regularly and exercise often. Join a gym and make a commitment to go there at least 3 or 4 times a week, make it a habit otherwise don’t join! Also, you don’t need a gym to exercise, get on your Snickers and go for a walk or run for 30 minutes every day or 3-4 days a week. Again, make it a habit. No excuses! Exercise relieves tension and produces a calming effect.

3. Sign up for a Yoga class. Yes, men can do Yoga too. You will learn how to breathe, relax and stay focused.

Life is too short; and stress can reduce it further. Nothing is more important than your health or state of mind. So don’t fall victim to your stress, learn to overcome it.

Pollution by Cars is Harming Our Environment More Than You Think

pollutioncarPollution by cars is a major issue for most of modern-day societies. The pollution in air is comprised of many environmental attributes. It contains carbon monoxide, nitrates, sulfur dioxide, ozone, lead, secondhand tobacco smoke and particulate matter. Particulate matter, also known as particle pollution, is comprised of liquid and solid particles in the air. It is produced from road dust, tire fragmentation, vehicle emissions, power generation and industrial combustion, smelting and other metal processing, construction and demolition activities, residential wood burning, windblown soil, pollens, molds, forest fires, volcanic emissions and sea spray. These particles vary significantly in size, composition and origin.

Overloaded and busy streets of the USA contribute much to the deterioration of the air pollution issue. Carbon monoxide is a biggest constituent of air pollution. It is highly toxic, odorless and colorless gas. It is connected with incineration reaction in cars and other vehicles same with cigarette smoke. Carbon monoxide is dangerous due to the fact that when our body consumes it, the level of oxygen diminishes. Higher ranges of carbon monoxide is a danger to one’s life. Minimal levels of CO if inhaled by the body in a long extent of time will still cause respiratory sickness. Too much exposure may lead to harmful health issues.

When you go out on streets, you see large trucks blowing out too much murky smoke. Analysis depict that there is a very huge negative impact caused by pollution from cars and other air pollutants.

A study clarifies that a persons exposure to toxic constituents of air pollution may differ as much within one city as across different cities. After surveying 5000 human beings for eight years, the analysts also observed that exposure to traffic-allied air pollutants was extremely linked to mortality than were city-wide background levels. For instance, those who lived near a busy road were more probable to die of a cardiovascular event.

Some examinations had approximated that citizens living in the most polluted US cities could drop 1.8 to 3.1 years because of exposure to constant air pollution. This has showed the way to conclude that:

Temporary exposure to increased ranges of particle pollution is linked with a greater danger of death due to a cardiovascular event.

Hospital admittance for various cardiovascular and pulmonary issues heightens in reply to greater concentration of particle pollution. Extended exposure to higher levels of particle pollution is a factor in dropping total life expectancy by a few years. These facts are really indicating us what future awaits Americans if this scenario carries on. Indeed, a demand to normalize pollution by cars is needed not only for the well-being of the present time, but for the times ahead.

Diagnosis Of Acute Bronchitis

Classifying an upper respiratory infection as bronchitis is imprecise. However, studies of bronchitis and upper respiratory infections often use the same symptoms. Cough is the most commonly observed symptom of acute bronchitis. The cough begins within two days of infection in 85 percent of patients. Most patients have a cough for less than two weeks however, 26 percent are still coughing after two weeks, and a few cough for six to eight weeks. When a patient’s cough fits this general pattern, acute bronchitis should be strongly suspected.

Although most physicians consider cough to be necessary to the diagnosis of acute bronchitis, they vary in additional requirements. Other signs and symptoms may include sputum production, dyspnea, wheezing, chest pain, fever, hoarseness, malaise, rhonchi, and rales. Each of these may be present in varying degrees or may be absent altogether. Sputum may be clear, white, yellow, green, or even tinged with blood. Peroxidase released by the leukocytes in sputum causes the color changes; hence, color alone should not be considered indicative of bacterial infection.

Because acute bronchitis is most often caused by a viral infection, usually only symptomatic treatment is required. Treatment can focus on preventing or controlling the cough (antitussive therapy) or on making the cough more effective.

Protrusive therapy is indicated when coughing should be encouraged (e.g., to clear the airways of mucus). Antitussive therapy is indicated if cough is creating significant discomfort and if suppressing the body’s protective mechanism for airway clearance would not delay healing.

Essential Travel Health Tips

Travelling can become the most memorable and exciting experience if health problems stay away. It is important to stay fit as well as in good health to enjoy the journey. Moreover, it’s not at all difficult to stay in a healthy body while travelling. Just take proper care of following tips and precautions and also have a stress free travel throughout.

Drink plenty of water. Drink plenty of water and liquids to prevent dehydration. Remember the water is purified and filtered. While going to abroad, ascertain about the quality water. In case, the water there is not safe, prefer water in bottles to give infections a miss. Stay away from tap water and ice cubes because they may carry harmful germs.

Proper and sound sleep works well for keeping the body energetic and fit. Therefore, avoid sacrificing the sleeping here we are at anything else.

Wholesome diet is another major factor. Choose healthy meals and steer clear of spicy or fast foods. Fruits and vegetables, which can be peeled, would be the safest bet. Steamed foods will also be safe. Also, go for foods that don’t require human hands when preparing.

Many infections and illness would be the result of adulterated/ contaminated foods and drinks. Therefore, take notice and consume wisely.

Always carry the required medical supplies including medication, painkillers, antiseptic cream, sunscreen and emergency first aid kit while travelling. In case, of group travelling, verify the medical arrangements produced by the travel coordinator. If certain health problems are persisting, then deal with them prior to leaving for travel.

In case of pregnancy, consult a doctor and understand the precautions have to be taken.

Enquire about the vaccinations along with other preventive measures, if any, required prior to leaving for destination country.

Carry photocopy from the insurance cover to care of any emergencies. Be sure that the insurance policy covers any existing medical ailment so they cover any future activities like white water rafting, mountaineering, and skiing and so forth.

While travelling by air, all of the above tips are equally valuable. Besides, there are specific other concerns such as jet lag. Stretching the muscles and walking during flight can help in keeping the issue in control.

It is advisable to avoid alcohol and overeating before and through the flight. In case of pain in ears, gum can help. For babies, using pacifiers and/or sucking bottle can relieve the pain sensation in ears.

For people with special needs and heavy ailments, prior information towards the airline is required so that necessary arrangements come in advance.

While using water transport, become familiar with about the safety regulations to prevent mishaps.

Wear loose fitted cotton clothes on long-distance journey and in hot climate country.

Apply sunscreen liberally to prevent suntan and sunburn in hot climates.

Wash hands pre and post eating food. Use hand sanitizer for added caution.

The Health Benefits Of Saponins And Adaptogens

Defining Saponins
Saponins are sugar compounds with foaming characteristics. The foaming property of saponins is due to the combination of the water-soluble hydrophilic sugar part and the fat-soluble hydrophobic sapogenin. Its structure is very similar to steroid hormones. Steroid hormones normally exist in human and animals by nature, and have an important function in many bodily processes. Saponins have no hormonal function, although they ensure that the body keeps balanced.

Benefits of Saponins
Saponins have plenty of health benefits. Many studies have shown its beneficial effects on bone health, cholesterol levels and immune system. Most scientific studies look into the effects of saponins from particular plant sources and results cant be applied on other saponins.

1. Cholesterol Reduction
Saponins bind with cholesterol and bile salt in the gut. Bile salts are responsible for facilitating absorption of cholesterol. However, saponins prevent its re-absorption, causing reduction of cholesterol.

2. Antioxidant and Immunity Booster
Plants naturally produce saponins to combat parasitic infections. Such ability also applies when ingested by humans, as saponins seem to support the immune system and protect the body from bacteria and viruses. Furthermore, the non-sugar part of saponins serve as an antioxidant, helping the body fight free radicals to cause heart diseases and cancer.

3. Support Bone Health
Studies have shown that saponins have a protective role on reducing bone loss.

4. Lower Cancer Risk
Studies have illustrated the anti-mutagenic and antitumor activities of saponins. Saponins appear to react with the cancer cells cholesterol-rich membranes, hence thwarting their viability and growth. Experts also found that saponins have the potential to prevent colon cancer and cause cell death on leukemia cells by stimulating mitotic arrest.

Saponins and Adaptogens
According to current studies on the biocomponents of adaptogens, plant compounds having adaptogenic abilities appear to fall into two groups  the polyphenols and terpenes. Polyphenols include compounds called flavonoids, and a lot of these substances have antioxidant properties. The biggest class of secondary metabolites, the terpenes enables plants to survive in their specific niche. The triterpenes include saponins, and part of the saponins is a specific group called triterpenoids.

When Dr. Israel Brekhman investigated about adaptogens, he found out that the active compounds of most adaptogenic herbs he studied were triterpenoid saponins that had little addictive potential and low toxicity rate. Some triterpenoids saponins have been recognized as having adaptogenic properties.

Other therapeutic properties of triterpenoid saponins include hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating effects. Some have a reinforcing effect on the adrenal glands, mimicking the activity of ACTH (adrenocorticotrophic hormone). This is a very important action of reducing stress problems. Adaptogens containing triterpenoid saponins include Asian ginseng, dang shen, American ginseng, holy basic, reishi, licorice roots and jiaogulan.

Saponins and Jiaogulan
The saponins present in jiaogulan are known as gypenosides. In one Japanese study, it has been revealed that jiaogulan contains four kinds of saponins that are exactly similar to those in Panax ginseng and 17 others very similar to Panax ginseng. Jiaogulan contains 82 different kinds of saponins, whereas Panax ginseng has up to 28 saponins.

Gypenosides has been shown to have anti-cancer activities by inducing cell cycle arrest and cell death in many human cancer lines. Other beneficial effects of gypenosides include neuroprotective, anti-diabetes, antigastric ulcer, GIT and kidney protection, hepatoprotective, cholesterol lowering, cardiovascular and antioxidant effects. Harness the natural healing power of gypenosides by taking jiaogulan regularly.

We normally take great care of our vehicles; we change the oil, change the anti freeze or coolant and even check the tire pressures. Without our vehicles we wouldn’t be able go to work to earn a living, so we go out of our ways to perform weekly preventative maintenance to ensure that our vehicles don’t break down.

Our bodies (the car) tend to take a pounding as the years go by; we work long hours, ingest large amounts of junk food, disregard good excercise and are exposed to all kinds of harsh chemicals. We take great efforts to tend to the more visible things, like our teeth and vision. Nevertheless, we never bother to take care of the subtle things.

Since no single food group can nourish the body with all the vital ingredients it requires, it is important that we consume a variety of healthy foods to derive the diet and nutrition our body needs. There are five main food groups: these are fruits, vegetables, cereals, dairy and poultry, fish and meat products. A healthy balanced diet and nutrition of these five food groups ensures essential vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber.
