Alive GABA – 100% Natural Helps with Insomnia and Anxiety

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Alive GABA, Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Energy, Fatigue, FORBES, GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric Acid), Mental Well Being, Robin Williams, Shannon Chung, Stress

BrainMental Health is a passion for me, in terms of helping people heal.  I have many friends and family who are affected by Mental Illness and it is always a hard battle for both the sufferer and their loved ones watching them carry on.  Most readers know that I am Shannon Chung, editor of the Alive Health Blog, but I wanted to let those who don’t know … that I wish to do what I can to help spread the awareness that there is nothing to be ashamed of if you are suffering from a Mental Illness.  This blog has always had the intention of providing credible health information and I have always been available via email for any questions.  I am also in the Oakridge location on Thursdays from 11:00 to 5:00pm.  While this article does touch on products, it is not all about “buy this”.  Our goal is not to just “sell products” but to create awareness of health and to put people first.  Everyone must find the right treatment for them… we are all different, unique and that means that there sometimes is not a simple or quick solution.

Therefore I hope this article serves you well and I stand by our mission statement:  “Changing the world through healthy living, by putting you first.”

Firstly I wanted to share the following article by FORBES entitled 5 Common Myths About Depression:

With the tragic loss of Robin Williams to apparent suicide, a worldwide discussion about the effects of depression has begun. Untreated depression is the leading cause of suicide in the US, and suicide claims 34,000 lives in this country every year. Far too often those who would benefit from treatment don’t get it due to lack of knowledge and misconceptions about the illness. Below are five of the most common myths about depression, with links to resources for more information.

1. Depression is synonymous with sadness.

Many of Robin Williams’ acquaintances interviewed since his death have noted that they never saw him unhappy, yet he suffered from severe depression. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), many of those suffering from depression do feel overwhelming sadness, but many don’t feel any specific emotion at all. A better description would be a feeling of emptiness and apathy. And since anxiety often accompanies depression, many feel a constant state of tension that persists for no apparent reason.

2. Depression is a sign of mental weakness.

Part of the stigma surrounding depression is that others will see it as a sign of weakness. Yet we don’t accuse someone suffering from heart disease or MS of being weak; we rightly acknowledge those as illnesses that affect a wide range of people. Depression is also an illness—more specifically, it’s a complex medical disorder that has biological, psychological and social dimensions. Plenty of otherwise “strong” people suffer from severe depression, and the consequences of not treating it are just as real and tragic as those of other debilitating diseases. An illness that affects the chemistry of the brain and nervous system is no less an illness than one that affects any other part of the body.

3. Depression is always situational.

While depression often does have a situational trigger like the loss of a loved one or divorce, the underlying condition does not need any particular event to surface. Depression is typically diagnosed when someone suffers from prolonged episodes (at least two weeks) of hopelessness, emptiness and lethargy that have no apparent cause. These periods can manifest inexplicably, even when life events seem generally positive. (This is another reason why depression and sadness are not synonymous.)

4. Depression symptoms are all in your head.

While it’s true that many depression symptoms are of the nature we normally associate with the “head” (dark emotion, tension, etc.), the condition frequently manifests all over the body. Common depression symptoms include indigestion, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, and general fatigue. Some patients also complain of persistent muscle aches.

5. If you are diagnosed with depression, you’ll be on antidepressants the rest of your life.

The ubiquity of antidepressant commercials and media coverage has had a backlash effect. Many people are fearful of being put on an antidepressant, even if they may benefit from one, because they think once you’re “hooked” you’ll never be able to stop. The reality is that not everyone benefits from antidepressants – by some estimates nearly 40% of those prescribed one will experience no benefits. Some people respond better to forms of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), or a combination of medication and therapy.  Even someone who gets good results from an antidepressant can, with medical supervision, eventually taper off the med in many cases.

The bottom line: depression is a treatable illness. When left untreated, its effects can be devastating.

For more information, visit the NIMH, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, Mental Health America, or this list of resources at WebMD.

You can find David DiSalvo on Twitter @neuronarrative and at his website The Daily Brain. His latest book is Brain Changer: How Harnessing Your Brain’s Power To Adapt Can Change Your Life.

Thank you FORBES.

NOW Essential Oils – Heal Yourself Through Aromatherapy

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Aromatherapy, Digestive Health, Energy, Hot products, Inflammation, Migranes, Nail Fungas, NOW Essential Oils, Pain, Skin Care, Stress

EO-Purity-5Essential Oils are a staple in my household.  Sometimes we always think about supplements for healing and we forget the power of essential oils!  Hope you enjoy the post…

Some interesting facts and history of essential Oils:

 

  • žHealing practices dating back to 4000BC
  • The early 1900’s, significant period in the development of essential oils and their therapeutic applications.
  • Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, French chemist and perfumer, coined the phrase “Aromatherapy” in his first book:
    • Aromatherapie: Les Huiles Essentialles Hormaones Vegetales, was translated into English.
    • “Father of Aromatherapy”.

Maintaining consistent quality in natural products like NOW® Solutions Essential Oils is a complex process, especially as supply changes from season to season.

So how does NOW Solutions consistently assure the identity and purity of our essential oils? We utilize state-of-the-art testing and analysis as well as numerous checks and balances, including:

  • Identity and purity testing
  • Use of The Essential Oils compendium by Ernest Guenther, Ph.D. and Fenaroli’s Handbook of Flavor Ingredients, edited by George A. Burdock, Ph.D., to verify the correct essential oil species
  • Supplier/grower track record of providing high quality materials
  • Aroma comparisons
  • Review of essential oil processing to ensure that appropriate extraction methods are used
  • Appropriate cautionary and regulatory language

Because identity and purity are key attributes of any essential oil, testing for these attributes is the best way to ensure an oil’s quality.

Blending Essential Oils:

  • Use 1 oz./30ml of a skin care oil: 7-30 drops of essential oils
    • Fill 1 oz. bottle ½ way with a carrier oil then follow recipes drop ratio, and fill to top – this can be doubled
    • Do not exceed 30 drops per 1 oz.
  • Recipe ideas visit www.nowfoods.com/nowsolutions
  • Three groups
    • Top notes; highly volatile, evaporate quickly
    • Middle notes; stimulate main body systems
    • Bass/Base notes; evaporate slowly, calming

Want to Learn More?

NOW Solutions identity and purity testing program uses four individual tests. To explore each test in more detail and to learn the designation between Food Grade and Therapeutic Grade oils, CLICK HERE.

Most Alive, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus stores carry the majority of the Essential Oils, and if we do not have the specific one we will get it for you!

Neo40 Daily – 30 Lozenges

Categories: Fatigue, Heart Health, Hot products
Tags: , , ,

Help naturally restore and replenish your body’s nitric oxide levels with the patented Neo40 daily formula. It is clinically researched to help relax arterial walls and support healthy circulation. Healthy circulation is associated with numerous health benefits, including support for:

  • Healthy blood pressure,
  • Healthy triglyceride levels,
  • Overall arterial health,
  • May help sexual performance.

A breakthrough in nitric oxide delivery

Nitric oxide (N-O) is one of the body’s most essential molecules. But because it has such a short life span, it can be untitleddifficult to keep nitric oxide at optimum levels in the body—especially for people over the age of 40.

Our patented formula represents a breakthrough in N-O delivery compared to standard L-Arginine supplements or dietary choices. It helps boost the efficiency of the body’s nitrate pathway so that more nitric oxide is available when and where it’s needed. Each lozenge contains 420mg of our patented nitric oxide blend, with added vitamin C and B12. Neo40 daily has been the subject of clinical research that supports its effectiveness to increase N-O and support healthy circulation.

Neo40 daily is based on the work of renowned nitric oxide researcher Dr. Nathan Bryan from the University of Texas. His ongoing research on the effects of nitric oxide on circulation and health inspired the formulation of Neo40 daily, created especially for health conscious people who prefer a high quality product backed by science and clinical trials.

Five reasons why Neo40 daily is superior to other N-O supplements

Neo40 daily works fast

Neo40 daily is the only nitric oxide supplement that works begins to work almost immediately. As the lozenge dissolves on your tongue, nitric oxide is produced almost instantly.

Neo40 daily is clinically researched

Neo40 daily has been the subject of clinical research and studies. Our team of scientists and researchers continue conduct ongoing research to evaluate its numerous beneficial effects.

Neo40 daily is more effective than L-Arginine for many people

Studies show that if you are over 40 or have compromised endothelial function, L-Arginine is unlikely to work for you. Neo40 Daily works through different pathways that research indicates increases N-O more efficiently than L-Arginine.

Neo40 daily is based on natural plant-based ingredients

Our proprietary blend gets its efficacy from safe, natural botanicals like beetroot powder and hawthorn berry extract. Also included are vitamins C and B12, which are designed to work synergistically with the botanicals to optimize effectiveness.

Nictric Oxide is Essential

Nitric oxide (N-O) is crucial for optimum health. It helps to relax the arteries and improve blood circulation, thus regulating healthy blood pressure and increasing nutrient and oxygen delivery to every system, organ, and tissue in the body. N-O helps to regulate blood flow to the cells and ensure nutrient absorption; it also provides immune support.

Nitric Oxide Is Vital For A
Healthy Cardiovascular System

 

In the field of medical research, N-O is being researched for its many benefits, including helping the body:

  • Maintain healthy blood pressure
  • Support normal triglyceride levels
  • Enhance healthy circulation
  • Promote artery health
  • Support cardiovascular and heart health
  • Improve exercise endurance and performance
  • Support sexual performance via improved circulation

Researchers continue to explore the health benefits of nitric oxide. While in the preliminary stages, researchers are currently investigating its potential role in bone health, cognitive function, pregnancy, and more.

Testimonial:

I am one of those people that is prone to getting yeast infections. I sometimes have to apply a treatment from the pharmacy more than once to clear it up. Since finding Nature’s Aid, I can happily say that I know longer need to buy these treatments. How it works, I don’t know, but now I use Nature’s Aid to clear this problem. I simply apply an amount to a pantyliner and re-apply a few times a day. I do this for 2, maybe 3 days. This clears it completely up. I actually do not seem to have the yeast infections occur as often as they use to. This stuff is simply amazing!

Here are some other uses that I have for it:

  • Bug Repellent (Mosquitos and Blackflies don’t seem to like it)

  • Takes redness out of any acne

  • Apply to my face every evening – has evened out my skin tone and
    diminished wrinkles

  • Damaged Hair – Once in awhile, I apply Nature’s Aid to my damp hair
     after I shower – it completely absorbs and leaves my hair shiny and reduces  dryness and frizziness.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your wonderful product!
A Very Satisfied Customer

Dr. Allan Woo – Centro Dental in Richmond BC Gives Back!

Categories: Children's Health, Oral Health, Teeth

Shannon Chung with daughter, Alive Health Centre

Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus are all about prevention and early detection.  This is why we LOVE Centro Dental as they are all about helping kids learn he importance of taking care of their teeth.  Oral health is vital for your child’s over all health.  As most of you know, I am a mother of two little girls and both of them go to Centro Dental in Richmond BC to see Dr. Danielle Woo.  Something that Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus are excited to share with all of you is how they are giving back to children in need.  Hope you enjoy this post… and thank you Centro Dental, it is amazing what can be accomplished if we all stick together.

drallanwooChild’s First Dental Visit, Centro Dental Gives Back

Importance of a healthy mouth in early life, Centro Dental helps!

The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends every child to have their first dental visit by age 1. I know what you may be thinking. A 1 year old only has a few brand new teeth. What dental problems could they have? A baby’s first dental visit is a fun visit and helps establish the importance of oral and dental health early on. It is also an educational visit for parents. Parents are educated about proper infant oral hygiene, diet, and habits such as pacifier-use or thumb-sucking that may affect the teeth. Prevention is the key to a healthy mouth!

drdaniellewooBenefits of a Healthy Mouth
- Healthy teeth require less extensive treatment, saving time and money.
- Baby teeth hold space for permanent teeth, guiding them into place. Premature loss of baby teeth can result in crooked permanent teeth.
- Healthy teeth leads to better general health and nutrition.
- Healthy smile helps your child build self-confidence.

Unfortunately, not all children receive regular dental care. There are many barriers as to why children don’t receive dental care, and poverty is one of them. In an article published in The Vancouver Sun on November 18, 2013, “Hundreds, if not thousands, of B.C. kids go to school hungry“, Daphne Bramham reveals the astonishing number of poverty-stricken children in our province. These children not only go to school without breakfast, but lack basic necessities such as eyeglasses, clothing, money for field trips and dental care.

Dr. Allan Woo, wife Lynn Woo and her business partner Peter Young responded immediately to the article. Lynn and Peter’s charity foundation, Hearts of Gold, has been donating to food programs in Vancouver’s east side for the last two years. They were shocked to learn the need in their own hometown of Richmond. Centro Dental, together with Hearts of Gold, have committed to donating $100,000 over the next 10 years to help feed needy children in Richmond. In addition to the generous donation, the Centro Dental Team will be providing free dental care to children of low-income families with urgent dental needs identified by Vancouver Coastal Health. And of course, we will be educating children and their parents about the importance of dental health and prevention of dental disease.
