Joint pain isn’t just pain—it’s a block on being able to do your normal activities, whether that’s just getting around your house, getting out, or getting active. There are a number of causes of joint pain, and they can come together to create a mess. Use a combination of prevention and support to get at the underlying causes of joint pain.

One of the contributing factors to joint pain is the standard American diet, which is high in fried, processed, and other inflammatory foods. Inflammation, especially if it’s chronically fed by what we eat, can cause damage to joints. If joint pain is an issue, start by changing what you eat: more antioxidants from brightly colored fruits and vegetables, and less foods that feed the inflammation cycle, like sugar. You can also take an antioxidant supplement to help tip the scale and get a big anti-inflammatory boost to your diet. A targeted supplement like Joint MGRx, or a powerful antioxidant punch like our Longevity Formula are good daily support. Read more about Joint Pain…

Keeping an Eye on Ebola

August 13, 2018

2016 came very close to an Ebola pandemic. Ebola is hard to treat, deadly, and incredibly contagious—often, for every patient 1-2 doctors were catching the illness, never mind the spread before the patient was contained in a medical facility!

Although it mostly disappeared from the headlines as the thread of a global pandemic dissipated, Ebola hasn’t disappeared. Ebola lives in the animals (bats and monkeys) of the congo, which also happen to be a traditional and handy source of food for the people who live nearby (it’s also spread by bites). Small outbreaks have continued since the larger multi-country 2016 Ebola outbreak, but with everyone already on alert, they’ve been quickly contained.

A new outbreak threatens to disrupt that. Located in a war zone, near several borders and large cities, the current Ebola outbreak is one wrong move away from another large outbreak potential pandemic. The good news is that vigilance from several governments, WHO, and other aid agencies is keeping it in check (for now) and the same things that make it a risk for a larger outbreak make it easier to get supplies in to quarantine and prevent the spread of Ebola. The biggest risk factor is keeping track of people, many of whom are displaced by fighting and other problems. Read more about ebola…

Sleep is good for you. It lets your brain flush and reset itself. During sleep, your body performs routine maintenance, including cardiovascular support. Everyone needs sleep—it’s a myth that some people only need 4-6 hours (tests show they’re functioning well below average and shouldn’t even be driving!), and that we need less sleep as we start to age. Once we’re past the developing and growing stage (sometime in our early twenties), everyone should be falling between seven and nine hours of sleep per night (depending on genetics).

But what about people who sleep more?

Over a decade ago, researchers new there was a correlation between excess sleep and an earlier death, and it was often (and still sometimes is) reported as a cause—sleep too much and it may kill you. But the truth is another step removed: if you’re sleeping more than 9 hours a night, it’s because something else is wrong, and you need to get to the bottom of it! (And you may need extra support, like from colloidal silver!) Read more about sleep…

The last big report shared that over half of all US counties have Lyme Disease. Now, Quest Diagnostics has released data based on blood samples that it’s clear: all 50 states have Lyme Disease (and, logically, the ticks that carry it).

Many of these regions aren’t aware. Patients aren’t aware to check for ticks or signs of Lyme Disease, doctors aren’t aware that it’s a possibility (and might be causing the chronic pain, fatigue, or other conditions patients complain about and get dismissed for), and the small governments in charge of pest managements may not be aware of the threat lurking in their backyards.
