“Natural Forces Within Us Are The True Healers” ~ Hippocrates
If you are like me, you are searching the web all the time and looking for information
regarding natural health. Maybe looking for a solution for a specific
problem or just for information in general.
I have been working for months now, creating e-books that will address
a natural/alternative solution to certain health problem/ issue.
(For instance, how to reduce high blood pressure naturally).
I will be offering these e-books through a membership site very soon.
They will be in PDF format and each month a new book will be released.
In October I will travel back home to visit my old parents, and I am rushing to open the door of the membership site before my departure. Since the air plain tickets are quite pricey now days, I will discount the price of the membership, to make it very affordable. So, this is your chance to lock-in your membership at a ridiculously low price. ( I am thinking between $10 and $14
per month). After, I will probably charge more.
Just to put it into prospective, the individual value of each e-book is $25.
If for any reason not satisfied, the membership may be canceled at any time no question asked.
You may build a library of these educational e-books and use them as a reference
whenever you need.
Or if you have a web site and wish to sell these e-books yourself,
individual resell rights may be purchased inside the membership site.

If you wish, you may sign up to be informed among first, once the membership site opens its door.
2) UNDERSTANDING THE PRINCIPLES OF ENERGY
By Shaolin Kung Fu Grandmaster Kam Yuen, DC
Energy supports all life. It supports every choice you make consciously or unconsciously. There is nothing mystical about it. Every desire that has materialized for us has been supported by our own energy. Every undesirable thing that has come to us has also been supported by our own energy.
Why? Because the mechanism that chooses what comes to us is single-minded focus. Energy is abundant and neutral. There is more than enough energy to support the total fitness of the mind/body spirit for all humanity. It is only a matter of learning to use it to our benefit.
Understanding the basic energetic concepts and using energetic ‘corrections’ shortens the time for improving your success in all areas of your life, such as health/fitness, relationships and finances.
Your approach to success is no longer at the whim of chaos or unknown to you. With the application of the correct tools, you receive immediate results and feedback. You can pinpoint the exact causes or sources of your ailments and weaknesses. You can correct yourself, as well as others.
Yuen Mastery gives you the correct tools. No longer will you need to rely on assumptions and guess work.
Relationships improve when you minimize internal conflict and self-sabotage. Relationships improve when you have better interaction with Self. Alter learning to pinpoint the causes or weaknesses and make corrections on the midline, you can give others the correct information, so they appreciate your presence. You can even make corrections for others to be strong in appreciating you.
Prosperity improves when you have the tools to make energetic to being strong for attracting the right circumstances and people that will support achievement of your goals. You can be in great demand with many people who are glad to pay for you services and products. You can make corrections to minimize weaknesses that stand in the way to your success, and make corrections to become strongly accessible to the wealth of the universe.
With a deeper understanding of the fundamental truths of energy, you will grasp more completely how basic energetic concepts work for your own benefit and the benefit of others.

3) ANTY-AGING LIFESTYLE
By Dr. Mercola
Death is surely inevitable, but I do believe you can live far longer than the average life expectancy, which, in the US, is around 78. Genetics may play a role, but is NOT the final determining factor for whether you'll live a long healthy life.
Barring an accident, your lifestyle has everything to do with your longevity. It's already been established that diet can override genetic predispositions for disease, for example, so don't fall into the trap of believing your health and longevity is somehow the inevitable result of what's in your gene pool.
Please understand that the list in the summary above is from US News and World Report and it is THEIR concept of what contributes to aging. Of course you don't get the newsletter for their views so I am going to use their list as a springboard to provide you with my thoughts on the topic.
The Leading Cause of Premature Aging and Premature Death
Increased insulin and leptin receptor sensitivity has clearly become the leading candidate for premature death. This results from two primary conditions: too much sugar and processed foods, combined with insufficient exercise.
Interestingly, controlling these two factors could likely eliminate more than 90 percent of:
High blood pressure,
Of all the molecules capable of inflicting damage in your body, probably the most damaging of all are sugar molecules. Fructose in particular is an extremely potent pro-inflammatory agent that speeds up the aging process.
This is mostly an artifact of the postindustrial agricultural revolution that we live in as over thirty years ago scientists learned how to cheaply produce sugar from corn and now it is loaded in nearly all processed foods and has become the number one source of calories in most all developed countries.
Fructose is a major contributor to:
Insulin resistance and obesity,
Elevated blood pressure,
Elevated triglycerides and elevated LDL,
Cardiovascular disease, liver disease, cancer, arthritis and even gout.
How does it do all this?
Fructose adversely affects your body in a number of ways, but one of the mechanisms that causes significant damage is glycation; a process in which the sugar bonds with proteins and form so-called advanced glycation end products, or AGEs. It's a fitting acronym because – along with oxidation – it's one of the major molecular mechanisms whereby damage accrues in your body, which leads to disease, aging, and eventually, death.
When sugar glycates it creates inflammation, which activates your immune system in a defensive maneuver. Macrophages are scavenger cells that are part of your immune defense system, and as such they have special receptors for AGEs, aptly called RAGEs (think: raging inflammation). These RAGEs bind to the AGEs and get rid of them.
Unfortunately, this process can leave its fair share of battle scars. Inside your arteries, for example, the scar tissue created from this process is called plaque. This also explains why there's such a strong connection between diabetes and heart disease.
As a standard recommendation, I strongly advise keeping your TOTAL fructose consumption below 25 grams per day.
However, most people would be wise to limit their fructose to 15 grams or less, particularly if you have elevated uric acid levels, which can be used as a predictor for fructose toxicity.
I recommend this lower level simply because if you consume processed foods or sweet beverages at all, you're virtually guaranteed to consume "hidden" sources of fructose.
How to Prevent Free-Radical Damage
The most widely accepted idea for life extension is the free-radical theory, which says that as you age, you begin to "self destruct," courtesy of free radicals – aggressive chemical compounds created as a byproduct of your natural metabolism that damage your DNA.
Lifestyle choices such as smoking, consuming processed foods laden with trans fats and other harmful chemical additives, along with pesticide- and other chemical exposures further add to your body's free radical burden.
With time, your DNA eventually becomes damaged beyond your body's ability to repair, and once your biological processed fail, you die.
Antioxidants continually combat these free radicals – which is why a diet high in natural antioxidants is so important for your health and longevity. Antioxidants are abundant in a number of foods, and your BEST bet to get high quality antioxidants is to consume raw fresh organic vegetables and fruits.
Supplementation can also be useful and resveratrol appears to be particularly potent and is often referred to as a "fountain of youth" that can extend lifespan. It is unique among antioxidants because it can cross the blood-brain barrier to help protect your brain and nervous system.
Another important but often overlooked antioxidant is coenzyme Q-10, but more specifically the reduced version, called ubiquinol.
Your liver produces CoQ10 and it is actually an essential nutrient for health and longevity because it provides energy to every single cell in your body. Unfortunately, after age 25, your natural levels of this critical compound begin to decline, which is why I personally take the reduced form, ubiquinol, every day.
CoQ10 is also an absolute necessity if you're on statin drugs as they can quickly deplete your body of coQ10. This is in part why statins are so harmful to your heart.
Glutathione (GSH) is another important and underutilized antioxidant. This is one antioxidant though I believe you can optimize with proper diet and if you are leading a healthy lifestyle it is probably unnecessary to supplement. However if you are sick and disabled and recovering, you certainly could consider supplementation.
Interestingly, increased glutathione levels may actually play a role in stopping telomere shortening, which is one of the most exciting anti-aging discoveries in recent years.
Now, I'm not a fan of taking fistfuls of supplements in lieu of altering your diet to get the nutrients you need, and I have reservations against using glutathione supplements in particular. When it comes to glutathione, one of your best sources is high quality whey protein. Other food sources include free range animal foods and eggs.
Just remember that there are vast differences between whey products. You'll want to make sure your whey protein is derived from grass-fed cows and very carefully processed to preserve the fragile amino acid precursors. Many whey proteins on the market are highly processed and may also contain undesirable additives.
I am so convinced by the research on telomeres and glutathione that I take Miracle Whey protein every morning, and a second dose before my twice weekly strength training days.
Additionally, I use Peak 8 -- specific "anti-aging" exercises that boost h.uman g.rowth h.ormone production.
The Anti-Aging Lifestyle
Going back to where I started, of all the healthy lifestyle strategies I know of that can have a significant impact on your longevity, normalizing your insulin and leptin levels is probably the most important.
There is no question that optimizing your insulin levels is an absolute necessity if you want to slow down your aging process, and that means modifying your diet to avoid excessive amounts of fructose, grains, and other pro-inflammatory ingredients like trans fats.
Here are the rest of my top "anti-aging" recommendations:
Learn how to effectively cope with stress – As discussed earlier, stress has a direct impact on inflammation, which in turn underlies many of the chronic diseases that kill people prematurely every day, so developing effective coping mechanisms is a major longevity-promoting factor.
Meditation, prayer, physical activity and exercise are all viable options that can help you maintain emotional and mental equilibrium. I also strongly believe in using energy psychology tools such as the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to address deeper, oftentimes hidden emotional problems.
Eat a healthy diet based on your nutritional type – My nutrition plan, based on natural whole foods, is your first step toward increasing your chances of living a longer, healthier life. This is so important.
Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels. This is another very powerful and inexpensive intervention that can have profound benefits on your health. In the summer you can do this for free by careful and safe sun exposure but even in the winter a therapeutic level of oral vitamin D (typically 5-10,000 units of vitamin D3 for most adults).
Animal based omega-3 fats – Correcting the ratio of omega-3 to healthful omega-6 fats is a strong factor in helping people live longer. This typically means increasing your intake of animal based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil, while decreasing your intake of damaged omega-6 fats (think trans fats).
I do not, however, recommend the new prescription strength fish oil medication, sold under the name Lovaza. Don't be fooled by their "all-natural" PR campaign. This is actually a drug to treat very high triglyceride levels.
However, as with most other drugs, Lovaza comes with potentially dangerous side effects that you would not experience with a natural fish oil or krill oil supplement. Side effects include flu-like symptoms, infections, back pain, skin rashes, upset stomach, taste changes, digestive issues, chest pain, migraines and respiratory problems!
Additionally, new research strongly suggests that 500 mg of krill oil is more potent and far less expensive.
Get your antioxidants from foods –Good sources include blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, beans, and artichokes.
Use coconut oil – Another excellent anti-aging food is coconut oil, known to reduce your risk of heart disease and lower your cholesterol, among other things. In fact, it's doubly beneficial because it can be both eaten and applied directly to your skin. Coconut oil can be used in place of other oils, margarine, butter, or shortening, and can be used for all your cooking needs.
Get your resveratrol naturally – Resveratrol is one of the forerunners in the anti-aging pill race, but more than likely, by the time they've manipulated it into a synthetic pill (like the fish oil discussed above), it won't be healthy for you.
Although resveratrol is the antioxidant found in red wine, I can't recommend drinking wine in the hopes of extending your life because alcohol is a neurotoxin that can poison your brain and harm your body's delicate hormonal balance. Instead, get your resveratrol from natural sources, such as whole grape skins and seeds, raspberries, mulberries, and peanuts.
Exercise regularly, and correctly-- Studies repeatedly show that regular, moderate-to-vigorous exercise can help prevent or delay your onset of hypertension, obesity, heart disease, osteoporosis, and the falls that lead to hip fracture. Although a lifetime of regular exercise is ideal, it's never too late to start. It's been shown that even individuals in their 70's can substantially increase both strength and endurance with exercise.
I'm also excited about the research showing how high-intensity, interval training can increase longevity as this specific style of training promotes h.uman g.rowth h.ormone production – yet another aspect of the longevity puzzle.
Avoid as many chemicals, toxins, and pollutants as possible – This includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.
Avoid pharmaceutical drugs – Pharmaceutical drugs kill thousands of people prematurely every year – as an expected side effect of the action of the drug. And, if you adhere to a healthy lifestyle, you most likely will never need any of them in the first place.
Incorporating these healthy lifestyle guidelines will help set you squarely on the path to optimal health and give you the best shot at living a much longer life.
