    Preventing Degenerative Disease

    in Self Help

    Degenerative diseases are forms of the one real disease -- distress of the organism. Stress, toxins, and poor nutrition cause this distress, which may take the forms of arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, infection, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, etc. 


    Preventing disease and inflammation is a process of relaxing distress. Calming stress, avoiding toxins and detoxifying, and pursuing life-supporting nutrition will help prevent any of these forms of ill health.


    Public poisons and EMFs can harm and impair organs. Natural health practices, exercise, a positive attitude and nutritious supplements help maintain these crucial organs. Routine support and periodic detoxification are essential for good health.


    Natural foods, such as a combination of fresh produce, ideally from one’s own garden, antioxidants, enzymes and minerals from super foods and herbs, as well as pure water, build health.

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Superfoods To Combat Heart Disease

    in Fitness

    While deaths due to heart disease have dropped in recent years, it's still the No. 1 killer of Americans. The good news is that we now know a ton about how to prevent cardiovascular disease, which includes both strokes and heart attacks.

    It's clear that healthy eating and living (like exercising more!) can make a huge difference.


    Salmon


    Salmon and other fatty fish such as sardines and mackerel are the superstars of heart-healthy foods. That's because they contain copious amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, shown in studies to lower the risk of arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) and atherosclerosis (plaque build-up in the arteries) and decrease triglycerides. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish and preferably fatty fish at least twice a week. Omega-3 fatty acids are also available as dietary supplements.
