All natural is the way to go!

The 7 Most Prescribed Drugs In The World And Their Natural Counterparts

We don't have to live in a medicated world, but we certainly choose to. The crux of the matter is that we refuse to proactively think about prevention because we reactively commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. This is the allopathic model. We want the quick fix so we can continue our poor lifestyle and dietary habits. It doesn't have to be this way, but it is. We can blame doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, but self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess. There are no excuses--if you're taking one of these drugs, consult with a Natural Health Practitioner this week about phasing out your medication and phasing in these powerful natural foods and remedies. 

Of the over 4 billion prescriptions written every year, the United States and Canada make up more than 80% of

Chicago-Style Hot Dog Made Skinny Review!

Chicago-Style Hot Dog Made Skinny

I just recently, a couple of months ago, had my first Chicago Style Hot Dog at Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. They had just opened in Houston.

To my surprise, I loved it.  It’s extremely popular in Chicago with everything in it but the kitchen sink!  A Chicago dog is typically made using an

Mackinac Island Trip Postponed!!!

My amazing trip I had planned to go to The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island has been postponed. 

As I was planning what to do while there, I came across information about their 

This could save a loved ones life!

A Must Read!!
Good thing to know!

Mayo Clinic
How many folks do you know who say they don't want to drink anything before going to bed because they'll have to get up during the night!!
  Heart Attack and Water -  I  never knew all of this  ! Interesting.......

Something else I didn't know ... I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time.  Answer from my Cardiac Doctor -
Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys,  it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.
Correct time to drink water... Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its  effectiveness on  the  body: 2 glasses  of water after waking up -  helps activate  internal organs
1 glass  of water 30  minutes before a  meal - helps  digestion
1 glass  of water before taking a bath - helps  lower blood pressure
1 glass  of water before going to bed -  avoids stroke or heart  attack

I can also add to this... My Physician told me that water  at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse. 
Subject: FW: FW: Mayo clinic aspirin Good information.

Subject: Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - PASS IT ON

Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic,  who is lead author of the report in the July 29,  2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of  Cardiology.

Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means  that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

1. If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night.
The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

2. FYI, Aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest for years, (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar).

Please read on.
Something that we can do to help ourselves - nice to know.
Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue.
They work much faster than the tablets.

Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart Attacks -

There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the  pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an  intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of  sweating;  however, these symptoms may also occur less  frequently.

Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.

The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up.
However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.

If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth  and swallow them with a bit of water.

Afterwards:  - Call 911. - Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by.
- Say "heart attack!"  - Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins.  - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and  ....DO NOT LIE DOWN!

A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after  receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people,  probably one life could be saved!

I have already shared this information. What about you?

Do forward this message. It may save lives!
