Scientists are working together across the globe to watch for, and to try and stay ahead of, the next global flu pandemic. They think they’ve found a likely source, too: man’s best friend. Humans and dogs not only live in close proximity with each other, making it easier for human flu strains to mix with dog flu strains, which have been mutating a lot recently.

Why is this news in the middle of spring/summer? Well, it gives us all a chance to stay ahead of a more serious flu strain spreading by taking good care of our pets health—don’t wait to take them to the vet if they are acting strange, like coughing, showing signs of lethargy, or showing sudden behavioral changes. It’s also because the Southern Hemisphere is having their flu season, which tends to predict ours—so now’s the time that experts take stock of what’s what. Read more about dog flu…

Summer can be a season of action—there’s so many outdoor activities to choose from, even if it’s just grilling in your own backyard. But don’t forget to stop and smell the roses, or whatever is growing in your garden. Even in urban areas, there’s growth, life, and calm moments to appreciate. Pour a cup of heart supporting Jiaogulan tea, and take an afternoon break this summer somewhere where you can mentally Read more about tea…

HPV has had a well funded PR campaign for almost two decades. For a refresher, it’s the series of viruses tied to warts and cancer (cervical cancer is the main one, but it’s possible it can cause cancer in other parts of the body, like the throat). It’s spread by skin-to-skin contact, and is fairly common (although a vaccine can prevent some of the worse big-bad strains from infecting you).

Here’s something that upon reflection, should be sort of obvious but is just now be fleshed out by studies: having a robust colony of good bacteria may help lower the risk of being infected by HPV, and thus developing cancer, warts, and other side-effects. Read more about bacteria…

Probably. Unhealthy diets, lifestyles, pollution, and hereditary factors have created a perfect storm of widespread thyroid problems. To some degree, we’re just getting better at detecting them—thyroid panels aren’t one size fits all. Your age, race, location, family history, history of where you’ve lived, worked, and what you’ve done can all impact your thyroid health today. Different doctors do better at navigating thyroid issues. Weight gain (for example) might be a sign of thyroid dysfunction, but it’s so easy to make it a personal failing instead—sometimes, supporting thyroid health at the margins (even when tests say “normal enough”) can really improve your quality of health. Being a little off center every day really adds up—so take control, and start supporting thyroid health with Thyroid MGR. Read more about thyroid health…

Fight Joint Pain

June 11, 2018

One of the most common suffrances people have is joint pain. That one limb you tweaked in your active days, your hands and knees after years of working, your wrists from using modern devices, or just the creaks that come with age… we all have little complaints that build up over time. Figuring out what to do about it is different. Some can ignore the complaint until the pressure outside drops, or they try and use the joint. Others have a general throbbing that’s become background noise. A few suffer from a constant reminder that the joint is injured, and struggle to find adequate help.

Don’t ignore your joints, it can only get worse over time. In addition to whatever physical restraints or physical therapy exercises a doctor may recommend, support joints with Joint MGRx. Formulated according to the strongest, most up-to-date research, Joint MGRx supports joints by giving them the nutrition they need, fighting inflammation, and supporting the surrounding connective tissue. It’s a non-addictive solution to work toward long-term results like better flexibility, less pain, and improved strength. Read more about joint health…
