Targeted Weight Loss

Losing weight sometimes requires a targeted program that fits your dietary weaknesses, behavior patters, or energy levels.  Here's a few options where you may find a way that fits you.

Dieter's Cleanse - get the body cleansing the fat stores out

helps the body remove toxins and waste from the colon, which can affect nutrient absorption and weight loss. The best way to start a weight-loss program!

Nature's Cortisol Formula - over-stressed with weak adrenal glands

helps to support the adrenal glands and maintain cortisol levels. This product may help the body manage stress, which can affect metabolism.

MetaboMax® Plus - a new twist on an old favorite with caffeine

MetaboMax Plus is formulated with ingredients that help increase thermogenesis and metabolic fat burn as part of a program that includes healthy diet and exercise.

Key ingredients capsicum and green tea extract help to decrease body fat. Bitter orange fruit, yerba mate and guarana stimulate metabolism with synephrine and natural caffeine. Ginger is added for its metabolic-boosting effect, and chickweed has been an integral component of our Fat Grabbers® formula for decades. Guggulipid herb contains guggulsterones, which help maintain cholesterol levels already within the normal range and decrease circulatory fat deposits. Guggulsterones may also help reduce fat stores due to their thyroid stimulating activity.

This effective blend:
• May help boost calorie expenditure
• Helps promote fat burning (lipolysis)
• Increases metabolism (thermogenesis)
• Boosts energy levels
• Provides antioxidants (EGCG from green tea)
• May have beneficial effects on already normal-range cholesterol levels
• Helps with the uptake of amino acids into muscle (synephrine)

Note: Yerba mate and guarana provide natural sources of caffeine (20 mg per capsule).

MetaboMax Free - weight-loss support without the caffeine

This formula was developed in tandem with MetaboMax Plus for those who desire a weight management boost without caffeine. MetaboMax Free contains capsicum, green tea extract, bitter orange fruit, ginger, chickweed and guggulipid.

Carbo Grabbers® - with Chromium - now with extra help for blood sugar sensitivity

Carbo Grabbers contains an amylase inhibitor derived from northern white kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris), which naturally and safely interferes with the digestion of starchy carbohydrates.
This interference means undigested starches can be carried through the intestinal tract where the body can eliminate them, helping to reduce the calories available to your body. This makes avoiding carbohydrates—a common practice among some dieters—a thing of the past!

Now we've added 18 mcg of patented, food-bound chromium per serving. The trace mineral chromium helps transport glucose from the blood into the cells. The liver also uses chromium to manufacture important nutrients. Chromium may have a positive effect on blood fat levels. With the addition of chromium, Carbo Grabbers provides help in maintaining blood sugar levels.

Nutri-Burn® - two types of protein for lean muscle mass

Protein helps build and repair muscle tissue. Increasing lean muscle mass leads to increases in the resting metabolic rate, or the rate that your body burns fuel for energy. Nutri-Burn protein drink mix supplies pure whey and calcium caseinate protein for a powerful, muscle-building, meal replacement supplement.
Nutri-Burn:
• Promotes lean muscle mass and fat-burning.
• Provides 25 grams of protein per serving.
• Helps boost energy levels.
• Provides 60 percent or more of the Daily Value of 14 essential vitamins and minerals.
• Goes down easily with improved chocolate and vanilla flavors.

Key ingredients in Nutri-Burn include a protein matrix, CLA, fructo- oligosaccharides, l-carnitine, proteolytic plant enzyme blend and green tea extract. It also provides essential vitamins and minerals to support metabolism. The protein matrix and CLA enhance lean muscle mass while other ingredients help boost energy levels and increase lypolysis.

Nutri-Burn's patented whey protein matrix undergoes extreme filtration to remove all impurities. The result is premium-quality, lactose-free whey protein. Additionally, Nutri-Burn contains plant enzymes that help break down protein. Nutri-Burn also contains one gram of prebiotic fiber (scFOS) per serving to help support gut health.

Nutri-Burn contains an optimal blend of protein from whey and calcium caseinate. Whey protein provides essential amino acids and has the highest biological value of any protein supplement. It releases quickly into the body and is best for fast, efficient, muscle building and repair. Ideally, you should consume whey protein within 45 minutes of exercise. Calcium caseinate protein offers a sustained release of amino acids and may help curb appetite for a longer period of time.

MetaboStart® Plus - a wide range of targets - five different ways to help manage weight

MetaboStart Plus was formulated to boost metabolism, reduce fat stores and help feed lean muscle, an important part of weight management.

Each box contains 14 days' worth of supplements designed to:
• increase thermogenesis/fat burning
• decrease fat deposits
• boost metabolism and energy
• help prevent calories from starchy foods from reaching the bloodstream
• help build lean muscle mass
• help prevent the digestion of some dietary fat and cholesterol

MetaboStart Plus is composed of 7-Keto™, Fat Grabbers, Carbo Grabbers®, Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and MetaboMax Plus. These product formulas are conveniently packaged for life on the go.

• 7-Keto can help increase the body's resting metabolic rate. It also stimulates increased production of T3, a thyroid hormone essential to metabolism.

• Fat Grabbers traps some fat molecules and dietary cholesterol, eliminating them through the intestinal system.

• Carbo Grabbers partially blocks the digestion of dietary starches, reducing the amount of carbs that are converted to calories. It also contains chromium to help maintain blood sugar levels.

• CLA helps sustain lean muscle mass and enhance fat burning. It may help support cholesterol levels.

• MetaboMax Plus helps increase thermogenesis and metabolic fat burning.

Cox2 Inhibitor Options for Pain

When the COX2 inhibitor, Vioxx, was pulled from the market after a study showed it greatly increased the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients who took it. A COX2 inhibitor is a drug that blocks the enzyme cyclooxygenase 2.

It’s the cyclooxygenase pathway of enzymes that makes inflammatory and pain products out of arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid comes from animal fats, so if you block animal fats from being broken down, they have to go somewhere.

In this case, the fats are causing heart attack and stroke. Other studies are coming out saying that other COX2 inhibitors are causing the same dangerous side effect. Therefore, if you are taking a COX2 inhibitor for pain, then please stop, and tell others to as well.

Protease Plus Enzymes are another fantastic supplement recommended for pain. If taken on an empty stomach, enzymes go through your body breaking down all inflammatory by-products that cause pain.

Naturopathic doctors know that there is not just one treatment that will bring about a cure; or that disease is localized to an exact area, organ, or part of the body. We are whole beings. Everything we take into our bodies affects every cell, tissue, organ, system in the entire body.

Both Pfizer Inc. and Merck and Co., Inc., two pharmaceutical giants, announced that two of their top-selling drugs Celebrex and Vioxx, respectively, would be pulled from the market. Both companies announced that studies had shown an increased relative risk for confirmed cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke. The Vioxx study revealed that patients suffered roughly twice the number of heart attacks and strokes than a control group not taking the drug.

Both Celebrex and Vioxx address COX2 inhibition, or in other words, inflammation. Nature’s Sunshine offers a safe way to address the emerging problem of inflammation and the havoc it wreaks in the body.

Recent studies have revealed that a reduction of inflammation will reduce incidences of health concerns such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and arthritis.

Nature's Sunshine Products - Alternatives for Pain

Triple Relief
• Possess natural COX-2 inhibition properties, including Nexrutine (a natural plant compound) and Willow Bark which has been long used in traditional herbology for pain relief.
• Helps soothe the minor muscle pain and discomfort following exercise or physical activity.
• Inhibits the COX-2 inflammation-causing enzyme without affecting the stomach-protective COX-1 enzyme.

EverFlex
• Contains Devil’s Claw an herb that has a very similar affect as COX-2 inhibitors. Studies compare Devil’s Claw with phenylbutazone; a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent.
• Promotes joint health and helps lubricate joints.
• Contains MSM which provides an adequate supply of sulfur—a compound important to connective tissue health.

Red Yeast Rice
• Contains satins that have proven anti-inflammatory actions for blood vessels.
• Supports the production of HDL (good cholesterol in the liver.

Thai-Go
• Rich in xanthones and antioxidants. Studies show that xanthones show COX-2 inhibition. (Especially xanthones found in the pericarp of mangosteen fruit).
• Correlation between antioxidant activity (neutralizing free radicals) and the reduction of inflammation.

Topical Relief Formulas
• EverFlex Cream
• MSM Glucosamine Cream
• Deep Relief Essential Oil

Microwave Ovens and Cancer

by Paul Ozark

The writer of this paper is a microwave oven tester who uses a sophisticated Holaday instrument calibrated annually by an EPA laboratory. In all fairness, I must say that microwave ovens test out with less radiation leakage than they used to 10 years ago, but I still must admit that I hate microwave ovens for two reasons at least.

1) It has no place in the American kitchen. Why? In the electromagnetic spectrum there is nothing but a judgmental line of demarcation separating X-rays from microwaves, and like all judgments, there is an enormous difference of opinion among scientists as to really which is which. We all know that our government is very careful about sending inspectors around to check the radiation emissions from x-ray machines located in dentists offices and in hospitals, but no one has ever had a government inspector ring their door bell to check their microwave oven.

It is assumed that since it passed the test at the manufacturing plant that no damage will ever happen to it. It is true that there are cheap testers available in stores, but since they are not ever calibrated, they are not to be depended upon. Similar to an x-ray machine, a microwave oven has a tremendous potential for harm if something goes wrong. It belongs, not in a kitchen, but in a laboratory where it is subject to regulation.

It is fairly well known now that for years the Russians bombarded our American embassy with radiation resulting in the expected cancers in our embassy personnel. Could this be an indication of a fact that the Russians have studied this subject of the biological effects of radiation much more than we have or that we are willing to admit officially? It is known that their safety standards are set at least 1,000 times more strict than our own comparable standards for safety.

I am also concerned with the apathetic manner with which microwave ovens are treated in the kitchen. Read the entire article.

Thoughts on Stress and Weight Loss

Do I Look Good in This Stress?
by Steven Horne, RH(AHG)
.

Being asked, “Do I look good in this dress?” by a woman isn’t a question I find stressful to answer. I can tactfully tell her whether I like the way she looks in an outfit or not, and add, “but the important thing is, do you feel good in it?” The question I don’t like being asked is, “Do I look fat in this?” However, a smart man can always dodge the negative answer with something like, “That outfit doesn’t do your beauty justice.”

Fortunately, I’ve never been asked, “Do I look good in this stress?” because I wouldn’t know how to frame a positive answer. Stress makes all of us look bad.

Let’s start with the fact that stress usually makes us frown and look like a sour puss. Everyone looks better in a smile, don’t they? But, it doesn’t stop there. Long-term stress ages us faster, adding wrinkles and grey hairs. But that’s not even the worst of it. Too much stress also causes us to lose muscle tone and gain weight, especially around the abdomen.

The weight-gain associated with stress is primarily due to the effects of a hormone called cortisol. A TV weight loss commercial a few years back called cortisol a “nasty little hormone,” which isn’t really true. We need cortisol to control inflammation and provide us with energy in emergencies. It only becomes a nasty hormone when we have too much of it for too long, and that only happens when we have a lot of stress over an extended period of time.

Cortisol, Stress and Weight

High cortisol is one of the reasons people look older when they’ve gone through a lot of stress. Many a United States president has aged rapidly while assuming the responsibilities of that high office and the same thing can happen to anyone who undergoes excessive stress for an extended period of time.

The reason cortisol causes muscle loss and weight gain is because it is a glucocorticoid, a hormone designed to increase blood sugar levels. Cortisol increases blood sugar by breaking down protein and increasing fat deposition.

Serotonin and "Binging"

But cortisol isn’t the only reason why stress can make us gain weight. Ever notice that we tend to “binge” when we feel stressed. This is because the sad, anxious and depressed feelings we have may levels of a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Serotonin brightens our mood and when levels are low, we tend to crave foods loaded with fat and sugar. That’s because fat and sugar stimulate serotonin production. Unfortunately, they also tend to promote excess weight.

If the binging we did when we felt stressed involved eating naturally sweet foods like fresh fruits and good fats like almonds and walnuts, it probably wouldn’t contribute to weight gain. But most of the time people binge on empty calorie foods such as candy, soda pop, chips, ice cream and donuts, cookies and other pastries made with white flour, refined sugar and processed fats.

These empty calorie foods don’t give us the vitamins and minerals that the body needs to deal with stress. Instead, they deplete the reserves of critical nutrients, causing us to feel even more unable to cope with what’s troubling us.

So, if you get cravings for junk food when you're stressed, try taking some natural mood enhancers like St. John's Wort or Mood Elevator instead.

Alcohol and Caffeine Don't Help

As a side note, many people also turn to alcohol and caffeine when they are feeling stressed. These don’t help either.

In the case of alcohol, the body converts alcohol to sugar, so alcohol acts much like refined carbohydrates. It picks you up and then drops you down, giving you hypoglycemia and dehydration, both of which make you feel more stressed and anxious. Furthermore, alcohol kills brain cells, which isn’t a smart thing to be doing when you need those brain cells to help you think clearly about how you’re going to solve your problems.

Fortunately, I’ve never been tempted to try to drown my stress with alcohol. Unfortunately, I did try to use caffeine to help me cope with stress, even though I knew better. When we’re feeling stressed we get tired, mostly because we don’t sleep well. This is what makes caffeinated beverages, like coffee, black tea, cola drinks and those highly advertised energy drinks so tempting. They appear to give us a boost of energy.

Unfortunately, they do this by creating a bigger “stress response” in the body. They whip our already tired adrenal glands, forcing them to dig a little deeper into our energy reserves. This doesn’t really increase our body’s ability to produce energy, so it makes us even more depleted. Even worse, caffeine inhibits the breakdown of stress hormones, which robs of us much needed rest and sleep and actually makes us feel more stressed.

If stress is making you tired, trust me, there are better ways to increase your energy. Try using Nervous Fatigue Formula, Target Endurance, Eleuthero Root or Mineral Chi Tonic. These can help increase your energy while mediating your stress levels.

Leptin: The "Fat" Hormone

Now that we’ve taken a little side trip discussing the negative effects of caffeine and alcohol on your stress levels, let’s get back to the third, and final, reason why stress tends to make you gain weight. It has to do with a third chemical messenger called leptin.

Leptin is a hormone made by fat cells. It helps boost metabolism while decreasing hunger. In other words, it’s a built-in control mechanism that’s supposed to keep you from overeating. The problem is that cells can develop resistance to leptin, just like they can develop resistance to insulin. When cells become resistant to insulin, you get type 2 diabetes. When cells become resistant to leptin, you gain weight.

Nutritional deficiencies and a lack of exercise contribute to cellular resistance to hormones. The chemical messaging systems that regulate the body need nutrients to work properly, which is why a “junk food” diet is never a good idea. Exercise is important because exercise actually helps us “burn up” stress hormones. It also keeps our metabolism high so we burn more calories at rest.

When you look at all these ways that poorly managed stress can negatively impact our health and weight, you can see why ultimately none of us “look good” in our stress. There are several supplements that can help us shed our excess stress and hopefully help us shed a few pounds in the process.

Adaptagens Can Help

For starters, consider taking an adaptagen. It will help reduce your output of stress hormones so you can cope better. Most adaptagens help to balance blood sugar levels, which reduces cravings for sugar, and enhance glandular function in general, which may help with leptin resistance. Adaptagens also improve energy, mood, concentration, athletic performance and general health.

Eleuthero Root was the first herb identified as an adaptagen. Other adaptagens you may want to consider include schizandra (found in Nervous Fatigue Formula, my personal favorite), rhodiola, suma (found in Suma Combination) and ashwaganda. Adaptamax contains all of these adaptagens and more.

Then, there’s Nature’s Cortisol. Nature’s Cortisol contains ingredients that reduce cortisol levels to lower stress responses and is specifically designed to aid in weight loss. If you have high cortisol levels, it may be very helpful. However, long-term stress can also exhaust your adrenals, resulting in low cortisol levels. When this is the case Nature’s Cortisol won’t help with weight loss and may even have the opposite affect. If this is the case with you, try using Adrenal Support instead.

Reading - A Painkiller Substitute

Since [Mackenzie] Bearup, from Alpharetta, Georgia, is in pain almost all the time, she reads a lot. For the past six years, she has suffered from reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), an incurable chronic disease that affects the nerves and blood vessels, causing severe swelling and discomfort in areas of the body that have been the site of injuries.

“Especially when my leg lays me up in bed for days on end, I read constantly to escape from my aching knee, from my room, from the real world,” she says. While previous treatments—painkillers, physiotherapy, acupuncture, hyperbaric oxygen therapy—have failed, the self-prescribed reading cure works. “So far, books have been my only medicine,” Bearup says."

Brain imaging studies provide a glimpse of what happens when we get lost in a book. Using scanning technology, a team of scientists led by Nicole K. Speer at the Dynamic Cognition Laboratory at the University of Washington in St. Louis, Missouri, found that some of the brain regions active during reading a story “mirror those involved when people perform, imagine or observe similar real-world activities.” When reading, our brains simulate what happens in the story, using the same circuits we’d use if the same things happened to us. On a neurological level, we become part of the action.

Bibliotherapy appears to have physiological advantages, too. A 2007 study involving 112 smelter workers in New Brunswick, Canada, for instance, found that workers who read a lot had greater protection against some of the effects of lead poisoning. Both readers and non-readers suffered equally from lead-caused motor impairment, but the non-readers had higher levels of intellectual impairment due to the brain damage the heavy metal can cause.
