Cloudy, throbbing, stuffed up?

In allergy, cleanses, cold, flu, infection, prevention, sinus on October 15, 2008 at 1:41 am

When the leaves fall, do your airways constrict and sinuses congest?  Do your throbbing headaches prevent you from enjoying the fall colors?  I remember when my eyes would tear up so badly that a film would cloud my vision and cover my contact lenses.  It’d  make everything from driving to reading difficult.  So, I’d wear my glasses, wipe my eyes and hope for the best.  That is, until infection set in.

The allergy whirlwind 

  • clear, runny nose
  • cracking ears
  • sore throat
  • constricted airways
  • constricted sinus cavities
  • thicker mucas
  • cloudy vision
  • headache
  • neck ache
  • swollen glands
  • infection sets in
  • productivity & focus depletes
  • miserable

Old, broken techniques

Here’s what I used to do…

  • blow nose
  • wipe eyes
  • take allergy meds
  • sleep more
  • drink more water
  • eat comfort food (ie. chocolate malt ball ice-cream)
  • wear glasses instead of contacts
  • get antibiotics from my doctor
  • finish antibiotic cycle
  • two weeks later, get antibiotics again
  • all fall, winter and spring
  • summer was my only hope, untill ragweed blooming.  Arggghhh!

Sound familiar?

Sing a new song.  “Free at last!”

I’ve learned some simple and effective techniques to help overcome and avoid this cumbersome cycle.   I hope they help you!

  • Raise the immune system so histamine isn’t produced when in contact with ‘allergens’.   How? 
  • Avoid sugar (which lowers the immune system and uses up antioxidants).
  • Distinguish acquired allergies from actual allergies; avoid actual allergens
  • Thin the mucas.  How? 
    • alfalfa (thins mucas, reduces inflamation & raises immunity.) 
    • What if you’re allergic to grasses?  Don’t worry, for most people Shaklee’s alfalfa isn’t allergy causing because we only use the leaves, not the stems of the plant.  Also, we only use mature alfalfa leaves so the root systems go deep into the soil.  Why is this important?  When you take our alfalfa, you get the trace minerals found deep within the earth which can raise your immunity. 
    • Take acidophilus to thin intestinal mucas.  Much of the immune system effectiveness is in the intestine.
    • Hydrate with purified water to thin the mucas and avoid infection.
    • Avoid mucas producing foods like dairy.
  • If congested, irrigate the sinuses immediately.   This removes excessive thick mucas, kills infection and reduces inflamation. 
  • Soothe sore throat with echanacea & zinc
  • Kill infection
  • Breathe clean air.

Our Master Cleanse

In allergy, cleanses, crohn's disease, digestion, Fertility, intestine, Menstrual disorders, prevention, productivity on October 6, 2008 at 7:40 pm

 

10 days to a Better You.

 

 

Why cleanse? 

  • Cleansing makes people feel better and look younger.
  • Because of the chemicals found in food, air, water & environment, glandular systems are crippled, causing depression, obesity, fatigue, & frequently illness.
  • No other animal could survive if they ate the chemicals humans eat. 
  • Even humans that come from indigenous parts of the world become deathly ill when they adopt the “Western” diet. 
  • Our bodies are sick & polluted, & just like neglected machines, they suffer when not running at peak efficiency.  
  • Our Master Cleanse can help change that.  It’s not magic; it flushes out the waste that’s putting a huge burden on every organ in your body.
  • Dr Bernard Jensen explains how internal waste poisons the entire body:

“The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level.”

~ Dr Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.

Thankfully Our Master Cleanse can eliminate waste and reverse lots of damage.

Productivity linked to nutrient intake

In business owners, insurance cost, prevention, productivity on October 5, 2008 at 9:34 pm

Poor workplace nutrition hits worker’s health and productivity, says new ILO report. 

The ground-breaking study examines worldwide workplace eating habits & reports that better nutrition can raise national productivity rates, prevent micronutrient deficiencies, chronic diseases & obesity.  Modest investments can be repaid in reduction of sick days and accidents. 

Some stats

  • Poor diet costs up to a 20% loss in productivity. 
  • Poor diet consequences: morale, safety, productivity, & the long-term health  (C. Wanjek, Food at Work: Workplace solutions for malnutrition, obesity and chronic diseases
  • 1/6 are undernourished or overweight.
  • 46% of global disease is diet related. (2001)
  • 60% of all deaths is diet related. (2001)
  • Diet-related diseases are expected to climb to 57% by 2020.
  • In SE Asia, iron deficiency accounts for a US$5 billion loss in productivity.
  • In India, the cost of lost productivity, illness & death due to malnutrition is US$10 to 28 billion, or 3-9% of GDP
  • The US annual cost of obesity to business for insurance, paid sick leave & other payments is US$12.7 billion.
  • In the US, where over 2/3 of the population is overweight, direct medical costs accounted for approximately US$51.6 billion & lost productivity approximately US$3.9 billion – reflected in 39.2 million lost workdays, 239 million restricted-activity days, 89.5 million bed-days and 62.6 million physician visits.
