How BOOSTme Can Help You Fight the Coronavirus

How BOOSTme Can Help You Fight the Coronavirus
Adaptogens are natural herbs known for improving the body's general resistance and vitality. They have built a strong reputation of a) helping your body defend against the effects of various stressors, b) increasing work capacity and ability to concentrate, while c) strengthening your immune system. Adaptogens minimize stress reactions in the cells of your body and provide protection against the long-term effects of stress.  When you are affected by chronic or repeated stress, your immune system weakens and opens the door to inflammation and viral infection, such as the flu – or the coronavirus. When you repeatedly feel anxious or your anxiety lasts a long time, your body never gets to return to normal functioning. This can weaken your immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to viral infections and frequent illnesses. Also, your reg... Read more

How Adaptogens Help Reduce Mental Fog

How Adaptogens Help Reduce Mental Fog
People have many terms for lack of mental focus. Brain fog. Attention deficit. Or (pardon us) brain fart.  Call it what you like, lack of mental focus is a problem for many people in our society. In fact, recent research on lack of focus (otherwise known as mental fog) found that “one in seven adults between the ages 18 to 39, and one in four adults older than 39, will experience some short-term memory loss.”  What most of those adults don’t know is that there is an easy solution, and it comes in the form of a proven new supplement. But more on that later…. The Varying Causes of Decreased Focus There are many possible causes of metal fog. Topping the list are such things as poor diet, abnormal or inadequate sleep, insufficient physical activity, and brain injury. Brain injury (concussion) is not subject to self-discipline or personal c... Read more

These days it is common to hear the term “adrenal fatigue” thrown around in alternative medical circles.  It is a term used to identify a condition in which a person’s adrenal glands no longer function at an optimum level, causing a whole host of body issues.   A quick Google search reveals that there are conflicting opinions regarding whether adrenal fatigue is a real condition or not.

The Fabulous Four of the Adaptogen World

The Fabulous Four of the Adaptogen World
Adaptogens are fairly new in the world of natural supplements. They are growing rapidly in popularity due to their effectiveness, but it is still common for many people to hear the word “adaptogen” and think, “what-ogen?” So what are adaptogens? We’re glad you asked. Adaptogens get their name from their unique ability to help the human body adapt to the physical and mental stresses we encounter on a daily basis. They are plant-sourced substances that give the body a boost where it is needed most. Adaptogens work by “stepping in” where your body’s organs and systems have gotten “out of whack”. They restore something known as “homeostasis”. Homeostasis is a word used to describe a state of perfect balance. Homeostasis is the natural state of the human body, but there are many things that can cause things to be thrown out of kilter. ... Read more

How To Improve Overall Health Holistically

How To Improve Overall Health Holistically
We all know that we should strive to be healthier. But what does that even mean? When you compare the average health of an adult today to one that lived 100 years ago, some interesting things jump out at you: Deaths from pneumonia and influenza have dropped markedly. Pneumonia was the leading cause of death in 1900, but as of 1997, it accounts for less than 5% of all deaths. Modern medicine has reduced some diseases to mere footnotes in history. Tuberculosis used to be the number two killer. Now it isn’t even in the top ten. Modern life has also come with some negative impacts on health. Heart disease has replaced pneumonia as the leading cause of death. Cancer is now a close second. So while modern medicine has improved life in many ways, some modern lifestyles are actually destroying health slowly. If you are looking ... Read more

Sleep is the body’s opportunity to repair damage and recharge. It plays a vital role in our mental state and our ability to learn new things.  If sleep is so important (and we all instinctively know it is) then why is it so hard to get?! The truth is there could be many reasons quality sleep eludes you. But here are the top ways you can get those extra zzzzz’s: Unplug! When seeking a quality night’s sleep, it is important to avoid artificial light shining directly into your face in the half an hour or so before bed. Why? The answer takes us back to our ancestral roots. Our bodies are hardwired to know that dark = sleep time and light = wakey, wakey. It is literally ingrained in our DNA. When ... Read more

You Are What You Eat - Whole Foods For a Whole Life
It doesn’t take a genius to see that the health of the average American has declined over the years.
