Fight Picky Eater Syndrome in Kids

Is your child a picky eater? The body develops most rapidly in the first 18 years of life, so it’s vital for children to receive all of the vitamins and minerals they need to grow into healthy adults.  And because children solely rely on their parents to nourish their bodies, the burden of supplying kids with essential nutrients falls on adults.


Some children are good eaters, but more likely than not, your child gets picky when meal time rolls around.  If your child consistently rejects nutritious foods (or even if he/she doesn’t), it never hurts to give them a  Sunshine Heroes Vitamin Supplement.  Doing so will only boost your confidence that your child has the nourishment required to grow up “big and strong.”

Without some of the most fundamental vitamins, the body cannot properly perform tasks that regulate normal development.

For example, insufficient amounts of calcium, vitamin C and vitamin D can greatly increase the potential risk of osteoporosis and bone brittleness.  More severe deficiencies of these vitamins may even result in stunted growth or skeletal deformities. Vitamins A and C make children far less susceptible to the common cold or winter flu.  And necessary amounts of vitamins and nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin D can even help prevent some of the deadliest types of cancer.

Even if it seems inconvenient to make the extra effort, giving your children these essential nutrients, whether through a well-balanced diet, vitamin supplements or both, will benefit their health for the rest of their lives.  To learn more about essential vitamins for children, browse the children's area at TheHerbsPlace.com

Study Shatters Milk Myth For Bone Health

Epidemiologists have long known that countries with the highest dairy product consumption, such as the United States and Finland, suffer from high osteoporosis and fracture rates. And findings from studies in women, children, and adolescents also have raised questions about the use of dairy products in the promotion of bone health.

World Health Organization recommendations for preventing osteoporosis acknowledge this “calcium paradox.” The agency advises that individuals 50 years of age or older from countries with a high fracture incidence only consume a minimum of 400–500 mg of calcium daily, far less than the current—and inflated—U.S. government recommendations, which range from 800 to 1,300 mg of calcium daily for all ages.

Stools Reveal A Lot About Health

From your stool you may be able to get clues about your diet, your gastrointestinal health, and even whether your stress, anger, or anxiety levels are too high.

HOW FOOD BECOMES STOOL

From the moment food enters your mouth, your body embarks on a campaign to turn it into a soupy mush called chyme. Chewing, saliva, peristalsis (the involuntary contractions of gastrointestinal muscles), bacteria, hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes, bile, and other secretions all work to give each meal the consistency of split pea soup. While your digestive cells are absorbing sugars, starches, fats, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, waste products continue traveling down the line.

In the colon, all the leftovers are combined, packed together, and partially dehydrated. What remains - our feces - consist of water, indigestible fiber, undigested food (such as corn and small seeds), sloughed-off dead cells, living and dead bacteria, intestinal secretions, and bile. (The worn-out red blood cells in bile give excrement its distinctive brown color.) Read the entire article.

Digestion Can Help Depression

Digestion is a subject most people feel uncomfortable discussing, but we all deal with it. And did you know that digestion can considerably affect a person’s mood? Science is beginning to more widely recognize the strong connection between the gut and the brain, as it is in the gut that significant hormones such as serotonin are produced.

Digestion problems can change the production of hormones—the chemicals that tell the brain how to feel. Therefore, imbalanced digestion could mean imbalanced chemicals—ultimately jeopardizing our emotional stability.

As anyone works towards stabilizing his or her digestion, it’s important to remember that our bodies are designed to be active. Increasing your physical activity may play a role in helping your body maintain regular digestion. It would also be beneficial to consider taking a digestive supplement.

If you’re frequently battling feelings of depression, sadness and guilt, you may be suffering from the effects of serotonin deficiency. Serotonin, also known as the “feel good hormone,” stimulates the body to be motivated and active. As the sun sets, serotonin is converted into melatonin—a hormone that triggers sleepiness.

Many people who suffer from serotonin deficiency have high levels of melatonin. These higher levels contribute to the symptoms of depression. So, it’s important to make sure that your body has proper levels of serotonin in order to feel the benefits of the “feel good hormone.”

If you find yourself suffering from symptoms of depression, consider focusing on your digestive health, or even taking a serotonin-boosting supplement that works for you.

Antibiotics, Vaccines & Immunizations

by Donna L. Watkins

Sometimes life gets too complicated. That has certainly occurred within the field of medicine. Whereas our ancestors considered "first do no harm" as the Hippocratic oath states, today's generation of potent and dangerous drugs that can be "pushed" on television with a low-volume mumbling of all of the health and death warnings being spoken while pleasant images of a better life are flashing before our eyes. We still need a dose of common sense when making medical decisions for ourselves and our families ... so it is with the use of vaccines and antibiotics.

A strong immune system will defend you against any disease including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Plus, being healthy has many side benefits including a superior quality of life, so diet is your first defense against disease. The quickest way to get nutrition into the body is through the use of fresh juices.

Vaccinations, immunizations, inoculations and antibiotics are very limited in what they can do to defend you against a microbial attack, besides them having debilitating side effects and also possible contamination. Also, neither vaccines nor antibiotics can protect you from new strains of a disease.

For more information on documented research about vaccines, see the search results.

Learn how to legally avoid unwanted vaccinations of all kinds.

Did you know that some children's vaccines have aborted fetus cells?

Please study the above links before vaccinating your children or yourself.

Regarding antibiotics, consideration of antibiotic alternatives should be seriously considered. Many health authorities now admit that antibiotics are overprescribed and toxic, creating many subtle problems worse than the original condition. An article by Lawrence Wilson, MD, Beyond Antibiotics, examines antibiotics more carefully with a more current view of research findings.

A study between the link of use of antibiotics creating asthma in children later in life is currently being conducted by the University of Alberta.

Consider common sense and that internal gut feeling you have about such things. Life can still be simpler and definitely more frugal with natural alternatives. We personally keep Silver Shield stocked in our medicine cabinet because of the research on this substance. The amount of research only grows, supporting the effectiveness of it. The pathogens tested and killed in this solution also grows.

We also have a Boomerang Air Sanitizer in our home which we consider to have been a good investment. With all the microbial attacks on our immune systems daily, we feel good about providing the microbial-killing qualities of the Boomerang within our home since it's where we spend the most time each week. While we sleep and our bodies recharge for another day, it's good to know our immune system is getting a break also.

Take time to discuss such family issues that are of great importance to future health conditions.

Gardening Therapy for Chronic Diseases

Working with plants can do more than lift the spirits. It can be an effective therapy for many chronic diseases.

Wes Buss gingerly patted the dirt around his newly transplanted tomato plant. His hands seemed to know just what to do. They didn't tremble. They didn't fumble. They didn't give up.

Several years ago, when his Parkinson's disease began to make it difficult for him to tend to his many gardens, Buss built sidewalks and a ramp to ease his scooter's path around the yard. But let the disease prevent him from gardening? "I'll never be ready," said the 73-year-old Twin Citian.

Buss was just the kind of person Jeannie Larson had in mind 16 years ago when she started a therapeutic horticulture program through the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Read the entire article.

Chickenpox Vaccine Creates Shingles Epidemic

Chickenpox is Nature's Way of Protecting You from Shingles

Nature has devised an elegant plan for protecting you from the shingles virus.

After contracting and recovering from chickenpox (usually as a child), as you age, your natural immunity gets asymptomatically "boosted" by coming into contact with infected children, who are recovering from chickenpox. This natural "boosting" of natural immunity to the varicella (chickenpox) virus helps protect you from getting shingles later in life.

This is true whether you are a child, adolescent, young adult, or elderly—every time you come into contact with someone infected with chickenpox, you get a natural "booster shot" that protects you from a painful—and expensive—bout with shingles.

In other words, shingles can be prevented by ordinary contact, such as receiving a hug from a grandchild who is getting or recovering from the chickenpox. But with the advent of the chickenpox vaccine, there is less chickenpox around to provide that natural immune boost for children AND adults.

So as chickenpox rates have declined, shingles rates have begun to rise, and there is mounting evidence that an epidemic of shingles is developing in America from the mass, mandatory use of the chickenpox vaccine by all children.

As hard as scientists try to come up with ways to "improve" human biology, they just can't outsmart Mother Nature.. In trying to tinker with the natural order of things, we tend to destroy processes that nature has masterfully orchestrated to keep us healthy.

This dance between chickenpox and shingles is a perfect example. Read the entire article.

Study Looks at Antibiotics & Asthma Link

University of Alberta researchers are digging through dirty diapers looking for answers about childhood asthma and allergies.

Doctors say analyzing the stool of babies can help them determine if antibiotics can be linked to the respiratory diseases.

'This is all about infant poop and factors in the early days of the infant that might affect its composition,' said researcher Anita Kozryskyj. 'We're specifically interested in antibiotic use and whether it changes the composition of infant poop.'

'The ultimate question is whether these changes can lead to the development of asthma and allergies in children,' she said.

More than 50 percent of infants will experience some sort of respiratory condition.

Dayna Hryhirchuk developed asthma as a child. She's hoping her 7-month-old Kyra won’t do the same. That's why she enrolled Kyra in the study. Read entire news article.

Cell Phone in Pockets a Health Risk

We are a nation grown numb to the seemingly endless fine print that accompanies our purchases. But every now and then a product is sold with a warning that should command attention.

Consider the little-noticed bit of legalese that comes in the safety manual for Apple's iPhone 4:

'When using iPhone near your body for voice calls or for wireless data transmission over a cellular network, keep iPhone at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) away from the body, and only use carrying cases, belt clips, or holders that do not have metal parts and that maintain at least 15 mm (5/8 inch) separation between iPhone and the body,' the warning reads.

Doctors Are Prescribing Nature

A noted physician explains why she and many of her colleagues are medicating people with a dose of the outdoors to prevent a wide range of health problems:

“I have a StairMaster right in my own basement, but honestly it’s been there for years gathering dust and making me feel guilty,” says Miriam, one of my patients. “It wasn’t until I started walking the three-mile trail in the park near my house that I got serious about exercising. I do it now rain or shine. I love the fresh air. The best part is that I get a great workout and don’t even mind sweating.”

At this point, I have heard enough variations on Miriam’s story that I have started to make formal “park prescriptions.” The prescribing instructions are considerably more detailed than ones you might get with a medication; they include the location of a local green space, the name of a specific trail and, when possible, exact mileage.

It turns out I am not alone. I’ve begun hearing about doctors around the country who are medicating their patients with nature in order to prevent (or treat) health problems ranging from heart disease to attention deficit disorder. Read the entire article.

Ice on Injuries Could Slow Healing

The study, published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology journal, suggests muscle inflammation after acute injury is essential to repair.

Professor Lan Zhou and colleagues at the Neuroinflammation Research Centre at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio discovered inflamed cells produce a high level of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) which significantly increases the rate of muscle regeneration.

During the study, scientists studied two groups of mice. The first group was genetically altered so they could not form an inflammatory response to injury. Read the entire article.
