 PROTOCOL FOR WEIGHT LOSS
 
 
     As we and our nation become more and more over weight, many Americans are looking for ways to reduce their weight and become healthier.  Whether you have tried diets in the past or this is your first experience with weight loss, this program can help you attain your weight goal. 
  
     The first step is identifying your reason for weight gain.  Some of the most common reasons include: hormonal shifts, medications, excessive eating habits, eating foods high in calories, eating at the wrong time of day, emotional or stress eating, drinking excessive amounts of calories, and not moving enough.

Spring Detox

     Well it is that time of year again, Spring.  The flowers, the warmer days (at least in some parts of the country), and the activities spring brings.  A lot of people begin the spring cleaning ritual.  They clean their house, their closets, have yard sales and just generally get rid of the old things that they no longer want or need.  This spring, why not include your body in the spring cleaning process.
     Actually, it is a good idea to cleanse the body with every season change, spring, summer, fall and winter.

Winter Illnesses: Time to Prepare.

  Temperatures today are in the upper 57s and it is forecast to get colder this week.  Some say this is typical weather for for time of year, the middle of Autumn.  The heat of summer is giving way to the cold and darker days of winter.  With this change also comes changes in the illnesses that afflict us. The onset of winter brings with it the season's dread. 
     The biggest dread is the nasty cold and flu.  I am not saying that colder weather causes these illnesses, but the viruses that manifest as cold and or flu thrive better in the cooler temperatures of fall and winter when the humidity is lower, we are all gathered together in close quarters, and our immune system is a little less active.

Vitamin D The Sunshine Vitamin

     As summer winds down and autumn just a couple weeks away it is a good time to start thinking about the "sunshine vitamin" vitamin D.  As the days begin to get shorter and the temperature a bit cooler, we will need to manage our vitamin D levels.  Vitamin D plays a dual role, that as a fat soluble vitamin and that as a hormone.  During the fall and winter moths, especially in latitudes north of Atlanta Georgia, the sun in not at an angle that can produce vitamin D through the skin.

Post Nasal Drip and mucus

     The buildup of mucus in the nasal cavities that run down the back of the throat (instead of running out the front) is known as Post Nasal Drip (PND).  Many people (including yours truly) experience this condition from time to time while others experience it on a chronic basis.  Often, it is a seasonal thing that affect most people during the spring and fall.  According to “WebMD” PND is symptomatic of a number of health related conditions. After finding the cause, a more specific treatment can be given (i.

More frequently than not, these symptoms often go unexplained by medical doctors even after you are subjected to a host of medical tests. In most cases, you are sent home with no answers and a bottle or two of pills (with their side effects) as a solution.

Diseases link to Soda Consumption

    
Nearly everyone likes to have a soda or two.Many like to have several sodas per day. What is the harm in drinking a soda a day? Is there a difference in drinking a diet soda verses a regular soda? Why you should think twice about the next soda you are about to drink or allow your child to drink.
 
Who am I to talk to you about drinking sodas? I have been a long time fan of the wonder elixirs from Coke to Pepsi to Sun drop to Mountain Dew and many many more brand names and some not so brand named drinks.

Calcium Study

     Well it has been a while since my last post.  I have enjoyed a very long vacation with my beautiful wife and partner Jann celebrating our wedding anniversary and her birthday.  We've spent time exploring the outer banks of NC from Newbern, Ocracoke, Duck and Manteo to discoveries along the way and to the mountains of western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.  Reflecting upon our travel, one can only conclude that there is a divine intelligence that not only created our world and universe but also the human spirit.

Dimethylglycine (DMG) Amino Acid in its simplest form.

     Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a derivative of glycine, which is the simplest of the amino acids.  It is the building block of many important substances including the amino acid methionine, choline, many hormones and neurotransmitters, and DNA.  Research shows DMG to be physiologically active and important to cell metabolism. 
     DMG is a safe, natural, non toxic food substance that does not build up in the body.  It is a water soluble intermediary metabolite (it has a temporary role in the cell cycle before being rapidly broken down).
