Health Tip - Limiting Sugar Consumption
"Sugar consumption, including high fructose corn syrup, can weaken the immune system by up to 50% (depending on the size of the dose) for up to 4 hours. Consider limiting sugar consumption at the beginning of any illness to minimize damage to the immune system when under attack."
Health Tip - Joint Pain
"When joint pain is a problem (not current injury related), regular exercise is essential to prevent joint deterioration from lack of muscle use, restriction of movement, pain and excess weight gain. Consider exercising gently (not to the point of injury) to build strength in the weakened, not currently injured joint."
Health Tip - Fresh Food Diet
"To maximize health, avoid processed foods with labels, especially if there are more than three ingredients, or if there are ingredients that sound like chemical compounds. Consider switching to a fresh food diet to maximize health."
Health Tip - Vitamin and Mineral Supplements
"Exposure to environmental chemicals, stress, lack of sleep, and illness all increase the body's need for vitamins and minerals, and most Americans would see improved health with a good vitamin and mineral supplement. Consider adding a good general vitamin and mineral supplement if you are not already taking one."
