Dr. Oz Discusses: Reactive Energy Type, Fluctuating Energy Type and Sluggish Energy Type Which Calls For Hormone Balacing With Lorna Vanderhaeghe

Categories: Energy, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Inflammation, Weight Loss, Womans Health

We all have suffered from descresed energy at some point in our lives.  Today Dr. Oz discussed the differences in energy types: Reactive Energy Type, Fluctuating Energy Type and Sluggish Energy Type.  So what is your E-Type?

Reactive E-Type:

  • Tend to carry your weight in the top
  • Always feel on edge
  • Tired in the morning

These are classic signs of exhausted Adrenal glands.  You are burned out and it is due to the hormone cortisol.  While Dr. Oz has touched on this, I would love to share with all of you that Lorna Vanderhaeghe has been talking about this for years.  Her research is dedicated to hormone balancing and AdrenaSmart is what you would be after for the following results:

ADRENASMART Less Stress, More Energy       
What to expect from this product:

  • Increase in energy, endurance and well-being
  • Rejuvenation, increased sexual performance
  • Enhanced immune function, and anti-tumor properties
  • Reduced pain and inflammation (injuries, arthritis)
  • Antioxidant properties that fight free radical damage
  • Anti-Aging
  • Cardiovascular protection

Suggested usage: Take 1-2 capsules midday with a snack.

The ingredients contain everything that Dr. Oz has been talking about lately on his show.  Here is a fantastic, quality product with its NPN

Rhodiola, Suma, Schizandra Berries, and Ashwagandha

More information here: http://healthyimmunity.com/products/PI_sheets/ADRENAsmart.pdf

Fluctuating E-Type:

Next we have the Fluctuating E-Type.

  • Tired at any moment
  • Unpredictable periods
  • Carry weight from the waste down

This is happening again due to an imbalance of hormones.  This has to do with Estrogen imbalance.  What is incredibly helpful to countless women is Lorna Vanderhaeghe’s EstroSmart formula.  No more heavy periods, no more cramps, acne and unexplained tiredness.

ESTROSMART PLUS
Balanced hormones, effortless periods, PMS hormonal acne and improved fertility What to expect from this product:

  • Maintains healthy estrogen to progesterone balance
  • Protects your breasts
  • Reduces and eliminates the occurrence of breast cysts
  • Detoxifies the liver of carcinogenic estrogens found in plastics, pesticides, cosmetics
  • Stops flooding, heavy, debilitating periods
  • Halts abnormal cell growth (fibroids, cysts, endometriosis)
  • For those with PCOS and ovarian cysts
  • Halts conversion of 2-hydroxyestrone metabolites to carcinogenic estrogens (16-hydroxyestrone)
  • Contains the equivalent cancer protecting plant nutrients as eating 1 kilo of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc…)
  • Eliminates PMS and makes periods effortless
  • Maintains healthy PAP smears
  • Eliminates hormonal acne

Take before menopause to ensure a healthy transition
WHO NEEDS HORMONE BALANCING THERAPY? All women but especially those with:

  • Exposure to pesticides, herbicides and toxins
  • Endometriosis
  • Fibrocystic breasts (benign breast disease)
  • Peri-menopause
  • Gallstones
  • Acne
  • Obesity or weight problems

For more information http://healthyimmunity.com/products/PI_sheets/ESTROsmart%20plus.pdf

Sluggish E-Type:

 Lastly we have the sluggish energy type. Which is described as:

  • Tired all of the time
  • Gain weight everywhere
  • And Sensitive to temperature

What are we talking about here? Dr. Oz is talking about a sluggish underactive thyroid.  Your thyroid gland is responsible for keeping you in balance as it is making hormones for you as well.  Lorna Vanderhaeghe’s product called Thyroid Smart is your answer to getting rid of cold hands and feet as well as unexplained weight gain.  Ladies, it is important to KNOW YOUR NUMBERS!! Do not be shy, when you get your blood work done, check off the box so that you can get a copy of your numbers.  You should always know you cholesterol and your thyroid.

Below is an important message by Lorna Vanderhaeghe:

Low Thyroid? by Lorna Vanderhaeghe
If you have the following symptoms low thyroid may be your problem:     

  • Thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Menstrual problems
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Headaches

Hypothyroid or low thyroid hormone is very common in Canada, affecting approximately 20-25 percent of the female population and about 10 percent of males. An additional 20 percent may also have subclinical or mild hypothyroidism whereby their TSH is within normal range. The thyroid secretes two hormones T3 and T4 that are crucial for controlling our metabolism. Because they affect every cell in the body, a deficiency will result in many symptoms including those mentioned above.
Severe hypothyroidism, confirmed by a thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test, requires the use of thyroid medication. But if you have mild or subclinical low thyroid, where your TSH is greater than 2.0 IU/ml but less than the 5.5 IU/ml level indicative of hypothyroidism, the nutrients found in THYROSMART may help. Or, if you have been on thyroid medication for a while and you still have symptoms you may not be converting your thyroid hormones very well. THYROSMART may also help correct this.

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Skin Care, Stress

Recently on the Dr. Oz show, Dr. Oz talked about Schizandra Berries as the secret to fighting ageing skin.  Lorna Vanderhaeghe has used Schizandra Berry in her excellent formula that helps to support the adrenal glands called AdrenaSmart.  AdrenaSmart is all about less stress and MORE energy.  The AdrenaSmart formula is excellent with much thought put into the formula preventing adrenal fatigue or burn out.

  • Antioxidant properties that fight free radical damage
  • Anti-Aging

While Schizandra Berries are amazing for the skin due to helping combat stress releasing hormones, this also means they are excellent for the adrenal glands which are fighting to keep the body in check when it comes to stress.  Below is a description of Schizandra Berries from Lorna Vanderhaeghe.

Schizandra Berries (Schizandra chinensis)

(2% Schisandrins)(5:1 from 400 mg Schisandra) 80 mg

Schizandra is commonly used as a general tonic and to promote liver health. It counters the effects of stress and fatigue. Studies show it has normalizing effects in cases of insomnia, nervousness and improves physical endurance, mental capability and is hepato-protective. It has also been found to have antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

Today Dr. Oz 5 Fat Busters in 5 Days: Raspberry Ketones, White Kidney Bean and L-Carnitine!

Categories: Belly Fat, Blood Sugar, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Omega 3's, Protein Shakes, Weight Loss, Womans Health

Dr Oz has been talking a lot about busting belly fat, bottom fat, thigh fat, top heavy fat and just all over fat.  This is a reminder post of where to get good quality supplements such as Raspberry Ketones, Phase 2 )White Kidney Bean Extract), L-Carnitine, CLA and Red Clover.  Often as soon as Dr. Oz talks about natural supplements people are looking for somewhere reputable get them.  Therefore, at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus we have what you are looking for all of excellent quality.

If there is not a location near you, we do mail orders.  Call us toll free at 1-866-499-9546

Let’s recap the body types and what is right for you!

ALL over Body FAT:

Dr. Oz’s number 1 miracle supplement is… Raspberry Ketones.  Raspberry Ketones literally works with the protein hormone adiponectin which tricks your body into thinking it is thin and actually will melt away your body fat.  Dr. Oz showed amazing results from people who have used it for 8 months.  The trick is using it while eating right and keeping active.  Raspberry Ketones will help you along the way as you put in the effort of eating right and exercising!  He recommended to start with 100mg or 200mg at breakfast and lunch.

Why can’t you just eat Raspberries?  Because in order to get the extract of Raspberry Ketones you would have to eat 90lbs of raspberries and this wold actually be counter productive as there is just too much sugar.

BIG Bottom:

For those ladies who have a big bottom you are not alone, nearly two thirds of women have a big bottom. This may be the safer type of fat as it is not linked to cancers but it is one of the first places women gain weight and it is one of the hardest places to lose weight. Many women lose weight all over except the bum! It can be very discouraging but there are things you can do.  Dr. Oz recommends that for 5 days you can replace one of your meals with a pasta primavera with lots of veges, some chicken breast and edamane helping shift the hormones in the right direction.  Then very important, you must consume 2 cups of Red Clover Tea containing isoflavones which help regulate estrogens. Too much estrogens is what the bum fat thrives on. Remember complex carbs, low fat and high protein diet is your friend.

Dreaded Belly FAT:

50% of women suffer from unwanted belly fat!  The problem is this type of fat is quite dangerous to our health as it is toxic and has been directly linked to cancer and cardiovascular problems. The good news is this is the easiest place to lose fat on the body. For this group it is all about eating the right fats such as olive oil because these fats help to reduce excess inflammation!  The meal you are supposed to replace for 5 days is your CLA BreakfastCLA is conjugated linoleic acid which is an omega 6 fatty acid that turns fat stores into energy.  Therefore CLA is helping your body burn fat stores.  The key is having a high protein meal at breakfast with some eggs and cheese, because dairy products have some CLA in it (however keep the dairy products in moderation!)  Remember to consume good healthy fats that are found in olive oil, coconut oil and avacados.  Dr. Oz also recommended to eat some tomatoes as they are low in calories and they are a natural diuretic.

Upper body FAT:

This is all the people with that annoying back fat, chest fat or arm fat.  This category is often referred to the android body type.  One lady on Dr. Oz said if she loses anymore fat in her legs and bottom she is going to fall over.  The key here is to use L-Carnitine_with vitamin C.  Your meal that you need to replace for 5 days, is your lunch with a Tex Mex salad.  This will include spinach, some sour cream, corn, beans, avocado and supplements with L-Caritine and Vitamin C as it helps to stimulate the growth hormone  which helps you feel vibrant and young and  L-Carnitine helps to stimulate your metabolism helping you rid your body fat.   Take 500mg of L-Carnitine at lunch.

Thigh FAT:

Last but certaintly not least we have the uncomfortable thigh fat.  This one is trouble some as it stops you from wearing your favourite jeans. Many women complain of doing all the hard work of losing weight in their belly but they still feel lousy as there thighs are still huge not allowing them to be able to wear nice clothes or feel sexy.  This is such a disappointing feeling. Well not to worry Phase 2 (White Kidney Bean Extract is to your rescue.  This is a carb blocker.  The key to your success is to take Phase 2 before carb meals and to replace your lunch with a protein shake.  They taste wonderful.  An excellent choice would be Prairie Naturals Proteins.  They have something for everyone whether you are Vegan, or only eat organic they are the right choice for you!  They have, Rice, Hemp, Whey, Soy… many options as you can see.  To beat thigh fat you are looking at a low fat high protein diet.

As always, we hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can do to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life.

Sleep Deprived? Marilyn Denis Show Answers!

Categories: Alive Brand, Belly Fat, Cleansing, Detox, Hormone Balancing, Hot products, Inflammation, Sleep, Stress, Womans Health

At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, we are always stressing the importance of sleep.  We want to help everyone get a good nights sleep and one way we try to help is by spreading awareness.  I was delighted to see Marilyn Denis shed some light on this huge problem as 74% of Canadians suffer from some sort of sleep disturbance.

Here is a little recap of what happened today on the Marilyn Denis show:

Marilyn talked to her Natropath on the show and they discussed all the different type of sleep problems people have.  Don’t just take any supplement find the right combination based on your symptoms.

Do you have trouble falling asleep?

If this is you take Magnesium and Passion Flower.  My favourite Magnesium is Lorna Vanderhaeghe MagSmart.  It is in a form that does not cause diarrhea, but will have you sleeping like a baby.  Magnesium helps to calm and relax the body and mind.  Passion flower works very well with magnesium also for calming and relaxing.  Dr. Oz also recommended Passion Flower back in 2011.  The New Roots brand is excellent as an example.

Do you have trouble staying asleep?

RELORA is not only good for belly FAT loss, but also is the magical one for helping us stay asleep.  You are not alone if you wake up at 2am or 4am.  This is attributed to the ugly stress in our life whether it is something small such as you forgot to do the laundry that day or huge like you cannot pay your morgage.  To get you sleeping through the night it is recommended to take Relora and Ashwagandha which is an Indian Ginseng.  Relora was just recommended on the Dr. Oz Show February 20th as well.

Do you have trouble with snoring?

Sometimes it is due to the body being inflammed with mucous.  Try doing a cleanse to remove excess mucous and inflammation.  Also Respiractin is a fantastic natural supplement that will have you breathing clearly in no time.

Are you waking up too early?

This is caused usually by low seratonin levels in the brain and is very common in women. Supplements you can take:

  • Fish Oil (Alive Brand Ultra Concentrate One a Day)
  • Vitamin D (Sisu Sublingual 1000 iu)
  • Inositol (Alive Brand)
  • 5-HTP (Alive Brand)

Do you feel anxious at night?

  • GABA (Natural Factors has a chewable one and AOR also makes an excellent one)
  • Magnesium also helps to relieve tension and anxiety

Do you suffer from Menopause and Insomnia?

This can be caused by low levels of Progesterone (basically hormone imbalance).  For this Lorna Vanderhaeghe (the authority in womens health and hormones) has an excellent line called her Smart Line.  EstroSmart, ThyroSmart and AdrenaSmart are all ways to help balance the bodies hormones naturally.

As always, we hope that you will come and visit us at either Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus. Do not sit in silence; there are so many things you can to better your health! Get excited and take charge of your health. Let’s work together, along with your doctor to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life. Our team looks forward to helping you with what ever your health concerns are.

Lose Your Belly FAT Today On Dr. OZ Discusses Relora

Categories: Alive Brand, Belly Fat, Energy, Hormone Balancing, Quick Tips, Stress, Weight Loss

Today, Dr. OZ is talking about the best belly blasting supplements.  One of the ones discussed is RELORA.  At Alive Health Centre, Supplements Plus and Morning Sun we have had RELORA for years.  It is loved by many due there being no side effects!  Dr. Oz has been helping the health industry by creating awareness around safe natural alternatives.  This is what he has to say:

“If you feel like your belly is bringing you down, don’t just stand idly by and watch it grow. There are plenty of effective and affordable supplements and foods you can try to help you lose that extra bulge.

 Supplement to Reduce Stress: Relora

When you’re under stress, your body releases the hormone cortisol, which makes your body store fat around your midsection. If you tend to gain weight when you’re stressed out, this supplement can help you tackle stubborn belly fat. Relora is supplement made from the extracts of two plants used for thousands of years by Chinese herbalists to promote relaxation. Clinical studies have shown that Relora can help mitigate feelings of anxiety. Decreased levels of cortisol can lead to the prevention of weight gain, the loss of excess weight, and the reduction of stress eating.

 Dose: Take 250mg of Relora three times a day – or one dose with every meal. Studies have demonstrated this to be the most effective use of this supplement so you receive the maximum benefit.”

How does Relora work?

Belly fat is a protection mechanism.  When we are in danger or stressed, the hormone cortisol increases and when there is an abundance of cortisol due to too much stress, belly fat deposits itself around the mid-section.  Normal amounts of cortisol are a good thing.  All hormones play a role and cortisol is there to decrease inflammation in the body and help protect the immune system.  The problem lies when we are over worked and over stressed.  Too much stress causes a large increase in cortisol and also will decrease the hormone DHEA.  This hormone, when severely lowered can lead to the depression of the immune system, an increase in insulin levels, bone loss, and depression. Relora naturally brings the body back into balance using two ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine: Phellodendron Amurense and Magnolia Officinalus.
