“You cannot change the circumstances but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” (JIM ROHN)

Do any of these health issues apply to you? Read each to discover a possible way to avoid them.

  • Fibromyalgia – absolutely no caffeine. You are also low in iron.
  • Diverticulitis – is inflammation in the colon. You should not be using caffeine oriented drinks or foods. Needed is an intake of probiotic foods, Turmeric, and also aloe vera.
  • Hand Sanitizers – it is being now noted by scientists that hand sanitizers can be dangerous, especially for children when sprayed, or rubbed in the eyes. I have found I am allergic to sanitizers and disinfectants. They cause me to become light headed – especially when used on a regular basis and many times during the day. Reading the ingredients you must note that they are full of chemicals that are dangerous to the human bodily systems.
  • Tattoos – How many people do you see that are covered with tattoos? One is too many. Tattoos have increased in large numbers starting from 20 years ago. The risks of getting a tattoo are scary. However, it is up to you as to what you want to happen to your health. The TATTOO RISKS are as follows: chronic infection, accelerating risk for type 11 diabetes, heart disease, strokes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, kidney and liver failure, autoimmune disorders, as well as many other diseases. Exposure to heavy metals – the inks contain pigments derived from heavy metals (mercury, lead and dyes) all of which are carcinogens. Early skin cancer – toxins from the metals also damage the DNA, cause oxidative stress and weaken the immune system. Scaring –how you ask, does this happen? The tiny ink particles enter the bloodstream and lymphatic system potentially migrating to the organs of the body.

Tattoo removal – usually done by laser, does not solve the problem. The harmful impact of a tattoo may be permanent. Each time one is applied and then removed, damage to the skin increases, as does exposure to potential toxins.

Little conclusive research has been done on this subject, but you can do your own research.

On a more positive note – what do you know about MAGNESIUM? Magnesium is a mineral that is vital to the healthy support of the body. It’s benefits: builds bone, produces energy, synthesizes proteins. Surveys show that magnesium deficiency in the United States is of epidemic proportions. (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey)

What is an inadequate level of magnesium linked to? Cardiovascular disease, stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, endothelial dysfunction resulting in atherosclerosis a narrowing of the arteries that restricts blood flow, and death.

What to do: I take magnesium on a regular basis. One just does not get the amount needed to maintain magnesium health from the foods we eat (Standard American Diet). The amount needed on a daily basis is no less than 600 to 800 mg. Many people I talk to say ” I take magnesium,” but they don’t take the amount needed to combat the cardiovascular problems. Also, it needs to be noted that a scientific review from 2010 to 2018 suggests that in some people, the use of proton-pump inhibitors causes low magnesium levels. These pumps are used for people with GERD. Be sure you ask your doctor to check your magnesium levels before using one of these pumps.

The right amount of magnesium will reduce inflammation, high blood pressure; improve coronary artery disease issues, blood flow and oxygen delivery in many patients with these diseases. I find that taken on a regular basis it is a great pain reducer, relaxer, and bowel cleanser. Remember when your mother used to give you Milk of Magnesia to make you have a bowel movement? It is good for many other things as well. DO YOUR RESEARCH!

MAY GOD BLESS US ALL AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!
