Welcome to Natural Pain Relief For Fibromyalgia

 


Heart Health

You hear in the news and on the commercials that heart disease is the #1 killer among women now. Why is it we are dying from heart disease and what can we do about it?

Do you really think that becel margarine is the answer? Margarine isn’t a real food, it is man made not natural. They say you can put in in the yard or in your garage and the mice or animals won’t even eat it. I read that it is one of the closest food to plastic we can get. Then there is the pink ribbon campaigns to help end heart disease. Can we really find the answer in another pill that most research money is going into?

I think the answer lies in what we put in our mouths. Vitamin C for instance is a heart protector that we don’t hear much about. The recommended daily allowance is so low it might keep us from getting scurvy but is it going to help with heart health? I don’t thinks so. There are so many things that deplete it and it is one vitamin that we have to keep replenishing in our bodies daily to keep us nutritionally healthy.

I think we are eating way too much of the wrong kind of fats, lack of nutrition from the right kinds of foods and stress. This world is full of stress and we need to slow down and start thinking about our health. After all if you don’t, no one is going to do it for you.

Warning:

Grapefruit can:

  • interact with drugs

  • increase risk of kidney stones


Grapefruit juice can affect the way your body handles certain drugs by:

  • blocking absorption

  • can make your body absorb the drug faster

  • always check with Dr or pharmacist  before taking any medication with
    grapefruit juice

Kidney stones

If you are prone to kidney stones, research shows you can lower your risk by drinking more fluids but don’t choose grapefruit juice.  In a recent study showed:

  • an 8 ounce serving of wine lowered the risk of kidney stones by 59%

  • coffee and tea reduced risk by 8 to 10%

  • grapefruit juice INCREASED risk by 44%


Of course this mean non genetically modified foods!
