Controlling for exercise levels, diet, and other common risk factors for heart disease, researchers have found that optimism—looking on the bright side and focusing on positive outcomes—is a major player for heart health. Being pessimistic may be up there with other lifestyle factors that contribute to heart disease. Support your positive side with D.S.A. MGRx.

It takes practice, or in other words, brain training to learn to be mentally upbeat about the future. And it doesn’t mean ignoring possible bad outcomes, it means focusing on the good. “Hope for the best, plan for the worst”. Calmly preparing for a bad event can allow you to move on, and focus on a good outcome (whether you can work toward it or only hope).

Here are some tools to help harness positive energy for your own heart health:

-Assign a positive mantra. It can be general or specific to a situation. If you need an idea, you can count the things going right for you, focus on what you are doing to change things, or choose an affirmation that resonates with you.

-When you find yourself veering into pessimism, stop yourself and think about your mantra/a positive outcome. Some people snap a rubber band around the wrist to train themselves away from pessimistic thoughts.

-It will be hard at first, so don’t wait until you catch a pessimistic thought, practice your optimism before you need it (tools for meditation can help).

-If your pessimism runs deep, your brain may need a little extra help. D.S.A. MGRx is a natural supplement that supports a better mood. Use D.S.A. MGRx as needed while you practice being optimistic. 

If you’ve already spent years being pessimistic, support heart health with the Omega-3s in Deep Ocean Krill Oil

Vitamin D is for more than strong bones—it will help keep you healthy and happy through the winter. While most touted for helping calcium to build strong bones, Vitamin D has critical roles throughout the body, including supporting the immune system and preventing (winter) depression. It can be hard to get enough Vitamin D from sunlight, which is why it’s one of the most recommended supplements. Make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D with Triple Strength Antioxidant.

Unless you laid around in a bikini and skimped on sunscreen throughout the summer, you’re probably going into autumn with low Vitamin D reserves. While most people get enough sunlight to not have rickets-level Vitamin D deficiency, most are moderately Vitamin D deficient, with low energy levels, a little ennui or a taste of depression, poor sleep, and a higher propensity for illness. Some foods are fortified with Vitamin D, meaning it’s processed into it. However, nutrients come in different forms, and added nutrients are usually in a cheaper form that’s harder for the body to use. High-quality supplements like Triple Strength Antioxidant deliver ready to use nutrients (which also means they’re gentler on your stomach during digestion).

Vitamin D plays a big role in your happiness. Each year, millions of people experience some degree of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), or the winter blues. Those sunshine scraps of Vitamin D you get from not wearing sunscreen during the winter go away when it’s too cold to go outside with bundline up, clouds block the sun more of the time, and the days are shorter! While most people benefit from extra Vitamin D year round, pretty much everyone needs it during winter!

Supplementing with Vitamin D is another tool in your arsenal for supporting your immune system during cold and flu season. Be sure to start today if you’re not already getting Vitamin D with Triple Strength Antioxidant.

Winter is a hard season for skin. It’s dry, harsh, and can create a “chalky” look. People rarely get told they have glowing skin during the winter! Support skin health with colloidal silver

Colloidal silver works for all skin types—young, old, male, female, oily, or dry. Silver is well-known for supporting healthy skin and is often included in balms, ointments, and other skin care products, even ones you might get in a hospital. Research suggests silver helps skin heal and be healthy.

You can use colloidal silver as a toner—spray it on moist skin after a shower, and let dry before applying lotion. Don’t just use it on your face, apply to chest, shoulders, and anywhere that is exposed at any time of year). Colloidal silver especially supports skin from sun damage, acne, and minor wounds (burns, scratches, and more).

Using colloidal silver straight from the bottle gives you more control, and more high-quality silver nanoparticles than creams (which are more expensive). Small, pure nano silver rather than ionic silver particles is both safer and works better with cells. Plus, you can pair it with your favorite lotion, giving you more flexibility with the products you use.

(And here’s another benefit—colloidal silver is better known for supporting the immune system. When you spray your face, you’re giving direct support to the main entryways of respiratory illness and gastrointestinal illness: the eyes, nose, and mouth!).

This winter, preempt the harsh conditions and add colloidal silver to your skin care routine–and keep going for year round skin support!

In the news. On the radio. Over the loudspeaker at the grocery store. On billboards, internet ads, and everywhere else… there are warnings about flu season, and being prepared early this year! Predictions are based off of the Southern Hemisphere’s flu season, which was particularly hard this year, as well as early cases in US hospitals. While no prediction is perfect (the double flu season we had last year isn’t, at this time, 100% explained) go with the odds and get ready for a bad flu season.

One natural way to support your health this flu season is to support your immune system. Good habits you already hear plenty about—sleeping, eating veggies, reducing stress, and exercising—all help strengthen your immune system. For an extra boost, you can take colloidal silver as a daily supplement. Colloidal silver has been around for centuries and is traditionally used as immune support against bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens—it was the go-to before antibiotics (originally much cheaper) came onto the scene. 

Colloidal silver is also safe to use in a nebulizer. And at the first sign of the flu (or other respiratory illness), it’s a good way to boost your immune support. An immune system reaction like a runny nose, twinge in your throat, or sudden fatigue could mean your body is having to fight something off. That’s the time to act with increased immune support—before you get sick! 

When cold or flu symptoms start, make sure you have a nebulizer to use with colloidal silver (or special sterile salt water, never with tap water of any kind). A nebulizer floods the eyes, sinuses, throat, and lungs with moisture and nanosilver particles. Moisture alone can help ease symptoms during cold, dry winters (nebulizers offer a stronger boost of it than a humidifier) and direct immune support helps your body fight off pathogens.

Follow the warning all around us and prepare for cold and flu season this year by having a nebulizer on hand so you can get extra immune support.

Headaches and migraines can come on any time. Even with various causes (whether it’s tension headaches or ocular migraines or another form) how to get rid of headaches and find migraine relief is pretty consistent and simple. Start with the basics, work your way up through solutions like Dakota Muscle Relief, and find the best headache and migraine symptom relief for you.

With any ailment, but especially with pain, it’s good to start with basic causes and solutions and work your way up to the heavy hitters.

With head pain, solutions start by sorting through headache symptoms vs migraine symptoms. 

Headaches:

  • Milder Pain
  • Distracting, but you’re still functional
  • Sometimes originates in shoulder
  • Different head regions

Migraines:

  • Debilitating Pain (migraine sufferers often lie down away from light or noise until it passes and are still miserable)
  • Light/Noise/Smell sensitivity 
  • Nausea
  • One Side Only or all over
  • Impaired vision at onset

The best way to get rid of headaches and migraines is to avoid them:

  • Stay hydrated
  • Stretch regularly 
  • Sleep and eat well
  • Time to de-stress 
  • Avoid foods that trigger migraines (varies for different people)
  • Regular doctor visits to address heart or hormone problems 

If headache or migraine symptoms start, backtrack down the prevention list. Remove yourself from triggers, drink a glass of water (or electrolyte rich drink), and take a short break. And don’t wait, get support from Dakota Muscle Relief at the first migraine or headache symptom!

You can apply Dakota Muscle Relief to temples, back, shoulders, neck, and anywhere else there’s pain or tension. Just make sure there’s no broken skin (it will sting). For headaches and migraines, the roll-on version of Dakota Muscle Relief is easier to work with, but the spray is better for hard to reach places (if chronic back problems are your issue and you need to apply it by yourself).

Because Dakota Muscle Relief smells of peppermint (not medicinal) and the smell dissipates quickly, it should be okay to use in most situations, like when a migraine starts at work.
