Alive GABA – 100% Natural Helps with Insomnia and Anxiety

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.

Globally more than 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression.  Did you know that ANXIETY is one of the most prevalent mental health problems?  Unfortunately, it is still under-reported, under-diagnosed and under-treated.

Alive White Kidney Bean Extract – Carbohydrate Neutralizer

Categories: Alice Chung, Alive Brand, Weight Loss

Are you trying to lose weight, but instead find yourself losing the battle against carbohydrates?  Carbohydrates are loved by many of us especiallyalive-white-kidney-60 in North America!  We love pizza’s, breads, pasta’s, potatoes and pretty much anything starchy!  It is almost impossible for someone to cut them out completely because life has to be somewhat enjoyable and let’s face it, a freshly baked Italian loaf of bread with some butter on it is to die for.  White Kidney Bean is a starch neutralizer and is a healthy way to sneak some of your favourite meals in, such as a beautiful pasta dinner without feeling guilty.

What is White Kidney Bean? And HOW does it Work?

Through numerous studies, White Kidney Bean has been found effective in neutralizing carbohydrates safely! White Kidney Bean prevents starch from being converted into sugar and eventually into fat! When White Kidney Bean is consumed before a starchy meal, it later excretes a solid waste of starch (carbohydrates)! White Kidney Bean works by binding itself to the enzyme Amylase which is produced by the pancreas and thus does not convert starch into sugar. Diabetics may also benefit from White Kidney Bean. This makes sense because diabetics have trouble controlling their sugar and insulin. When taking White Kidney Bean starch will not convert into sugar and then a diabetic doesn’t need extra insulin to deal with the starch.

Why Does Eating STARCH (Carbohydrates) make us gain weight?

After we eat starch an enzyme called Amylase converts starch into simple sugar. If we have a fast metabolism or we are engaged in enough physical activity/exercise some of these sugars will burn, otherwise it is stored as fat in your body. Everyone is always worried about consuming too much fat, but many people still are not aware that you must watch your starch intake! They sneak up on you. Just remember, if you are sitting all day at work and you consume 2500 hundred calories throughout the day with most of it being carbs, you will be gaining weight if there is no exercise to burn off those calories you are not using. White Kidney Bean will neutralize 75% of those, then you need some to give you energy and lastly with a little bit of exercise you will take care of the rest!

Main Benefits of White Kidney Bean:

  • Starch makes up most of the diet 25-33% in most cases and taking White Kidney Bean will neutralize 375-495 calories a day even if you do not make any other changes to your diet or physical activity (however, we always recommend a balance in life, always find something active to do that you will enjoy)
  • When you neutralize 375-495 calories a day that is enough to lose a pound every 7 to 9 days!  That is without changing anything!  Imagine if you through in some exercise!
  • White Kidney Bean will not help you against sugars in cakes or cookies (basically sweets).  White Kidney Bean will only neutralize the starches.
  • White Kidney Bean contains NO stimulants, it is safe, effective and INSTANT!
  • Many Asians find White Kidney Bean helpful!  If you love noodles, dumplings and other starchy Dim Sum foods this is a must for you!

We do MAIL ORDERS call us toll free at 1 866 499 9546

Contains NO: Artificial preservatives, colours, or flavours, corn, dairy, egg, gluten, shellfish, soy, sulfites or animal derivatives.

Adult Dosage:  Take 2 capsules before a starchy meal.
