Sierra Sil – Health You Can Feel – Amazing Joint Formula!

Categories: Anti-Ageing, Inflammation, Injuries, Joint Health, Pain

kolke-creative-vancouver-advertising-natural-products-print-media-sierrasil-retail-pos-support-00This is a post written by a guest.  I hope you enjoy!  So many of us suffer from joint pain and it does not have to be this way.  Many have found relief with Sierra Sil which is an all natural formula.  Below is the article with testimonials at the end…

In this fast paced world we have become addicted to quick fixes for every problem we face, and our health is no exception. Drugs are often taken to relieve pain without a second thought as to what it is we are putting into our bodies. Disturbingly, these quick treatments do not eliminate the cause of our pain, yet merely mask the problem by temporarily alleviating the discomfort. What is worse is that the more drugs we take, the more we rely on them to get us through each day and night.

Fortunately, there are healthy, natural alternatives to this approach that not only decrease aches and stiffness but also supports joint health and mobility. Our overall health depends on a proper mineral balance to keep our immune system strong and healthy. The lack of specific minerals can create both acute and chronic health problems that often plague us as we age. SierraSil is a unique mineral complex straight from the earth that supports the cessation of or noticeably reduces chronic inflammation.

One of the primary mechanisms of action of the SierraSil mineral complex is its suppression of those genes responsible for triggering and perpetuating chronic inflammation. SierraSil targets and reverses inflammation. This is something that many drugs are unable to do, at best providing relief from pain symptoms, not its cause.

SierraSil is ideal for adults suffering from sore joints, aches or muscle pain. It is designed for seniors seeking improved comfort in daily routines through increased flexibility and mobility.

Here are a couple of SierraSil senior users who describe the relief they have felt:

What can I say. I am in my mid seventies and SierraSil helped my knees within 2 weeks. One month I walk more, sleep better, pain in knees and ankles almost all gone after years of severe joint pain.

Why suffer try SierraSil and you will feel the difference.

- Jerald in North Bay ON

I’m 72 years old. A favourite hobby of mine has been working on old cars and trucks, but I had to give it up. I heard about SierraSil on the radio and decided to try it. I am now walking for 40 minutes every day! Initially I was very skeptical SierraSil could help me, but now I am a true believer. All I can say is try it!

Alive Flex Ok Takes Your Joint Pain Away

Categories: Alive Brand, Inflammation, Injuries, Joint Health, Pain

Many formulas for joint pain can be frustrating because there is always something missing.  There are so many ingredients to help with joint pain and often times customers ask, “Isn’t there just one product I can take that has everything?”  Well there is a very complete formula called Flex-OK.  We have had testimonial after testimonial from our customers.  People just love Flex-OK’s convenient and complete formula that the Alive Brand has to offer.

Each capsule contains:

  • Glucosamine Sulfate
  • Glucosamine HCL
  • MSM
  • Chondroitin Sulfate
  • Boswellia Extract
  • White Willow Bark
  • Yucca Root
  • Feverfew Leaf
  • Curcumin
  • Bromelain

Why does Flex OK work so well for people?  It works because there is no component regarding joint care left behind; all aspects of joint recovery are covered.  For example, there are natural anti-inflammatories such as curcumin to  help with fast joint pain relief, there is chondroitin to increase joint lubrication, and there is glucosamine to actually rebuild and repair joint damage.

While Flex OK is complete many people wish to combine products and this is perfectly safe.  Some recommendations would be to combine Leaf Source with Flex-OK.  Leaf Source has also been a leading product when it comes to joint pain, and the other benefit of Leaf Source is that it enhances the absorption of any other supplements you are taking.  Therefore, it is excellent to take with Flex-OK, and your multivitamin.  Another supplement that is a must is Fish Oil.  Fish Oil is so important for controlling inflammation.  It really helps with joint pain, but of course that is not all, it is excellent for Cholesterol, your heart and the brain.  Alive makes a ONE -A – DAY Ultra Concentrate formula, which is ideal for the busy person who is not a fan of liquid or having to take 4 to 6 capsules of fish oil a day.

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, along with your doctor to ensure you are doing all you can to lead a happy and healthy life.

Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 – Essential Fatty Acids Heals Your Body

Categories: Colon Health, Eczema, Inflammation, Injuries, Mood, Omega 3's, Pain, Psoriasis, Skin Care

At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus, our Spring Flyer Sale has a couple more days left.  Below is the flyer write up for Udo’s Oil 3-6-9 .

Udo’s Oil 3 6 9 – Think you don’t need to supplement with Omega 3′s? Think again…Omega-3 consumption has decreased to one sixth the level found in our food supply in the 1850s.

Of all the essential nutrients, essential fats are by far the most abused because they are perishable, chemically unstable foods. Almost all supermarket oils, including the oils used in processed foods, have been damaged by destructive processing techniques, including refining, bleaching, overheating, and/or partial hydrogenation (a process which produces deadly trans fats). Deficiency leads to deterioration of every cell, tissue, gland, organ and organ system. Udo’s Choice Oil Blend is compatible with all foods Favourite uses are in salads, protein shakes, yogurt, juices, soups, on steamed vegetables, rice, and pastas, and with balsamic vinegar for dipping. The Perfected Oil Blend includes oils from fresh flax, sesame and sunflower seeds, as well as oils from evening primrose, rice germ and oat germ. This blend is rich in GMO-free lecithin, which provides the building materials for healthy cell membranes. Udo’s includes organic coconut oil, which contains MCTs with powerful antimicrobial effects, and powerful antioxidants. Vitamin E and rosemary oil, both potent antioxidants, are added to increase freshness and to act as scavengers of free radical molecules in the body.  Nothing is left to chance with Udo’s, treat your body right with this fantastic product.

Natural Calm Magnesium Citrate

Categories: ADHD, Baby Health, Depression, Injuries, Kids Health, Mood, Pain, Sleep, Stress

Your body goes through a lot of changes and physical stress when going through labour: tense muscles, bowel movements are difficult because you can’t push, back pain, irregular sleep and much more.  Even when we are not going through labour or a healing process, we are all constantly dealing with stress, sore muscles, injuries, anxiety and sleepless nights.  Lastly, Natural Clams Magnesium is also safe for your kids.  Sometimes parents come in looking for a solution for their kids constipation.  Sometimes kids hold in their bowel movement because they simply don’t like going to the bathroom because their stool has been too hard in the past and has hurt.  This is a natural way to help soften the stool.  The other benefit in using Natural Calms Magnesium for kids is it is excellent for the brain!  Fish oil is always recommended for ADHD, but so is magnesium!  The Natural Calms Magnesium is the way to go since it is in powder form, mixes instantly in water and tastes great!  It is nice to know that there are natural solutions to help you with these kinds of issues and one of the best is Natural Calms Magnesium Citrate.

CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM & STRESS

What Natural Calms Has to Say about the Calcium Magnesium Relationship:
Calcium and magnesium are two different sides of a coin. Calcium excites nerves while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely. It is vital to keep these minerals in balance. Too little magnesium to balance calcium can be both uncomfortable and unhealthy.

To ward off the negative effects of a prolonged period of stress or an overreaction to stress, calcium needs to be balanced with adequate amounts of magnesium. Going through a stressful period without sufficient magnesium can set up a deficit which, if not corrected, can linger, causing more stress and further health problems.

Today we have diets dangerously low in magnesium. Factor in the recent addition of nutritional calcium via supplements and food fortifications meant to stave off osteoporosis, and many of us are getting inadequate magnesium plus too much calcium.

Magnesium has an important role in essentially every life function. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve activity, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and keeps bones strong.

Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure and is involved in energy metabolism. Many researchers believe that no single dietary factor is as critical as magnesium.”

Heel – Traumeel

Categories: Hot products, Injuries

Whether you have a sports injury, pain in your joints/muscles from over use, or you have been in an accident Traumeel by Heel is an excellent way to help speed the healing of your injury.  Everyday we have customers use it for nagging back pain as well as for other parts of the body, and we have had professional dancers come it raving about the product.  I have also used it myself for my hip injury and it helped tremendously.  Personally I like the gel more than the creme.  The gel is supposed to have faster absorption, but it feels colder to the touch.  Elderly tend to like the creme better and it is the original form.  I have also used the tablets that desolve in the mouth.  Traumeel is more effective when using it internally as well as externally on the specific area.

Traumeel comes in 4 forms:

Gel – external, Creme – external, Tablets – internal, Liquid – internal

Tips When Using The Product:

  • Apply the gel or creme 3 times daily. 
  • You can apply more times if necessary.
  • It says to apply generously, but it absorbs better in thin layers.  Therefore, thin layers, but you may apply it more frequently.
  • For internal use in general dissolve 1 tablet under the tongue 3 times daily. 

What is in Traumeel Creme?

Composition:
Active ingredients: 100 g contains: Arnica montana, radix D3, 4.416g; Calendula officinalis D1, Hamamelis virginiana D1, 1.326g each; Bellis perennis D1, Hypericum perforatum D3, 0.295g; Millefolium D1, 0.265 g; Symphytum officinale D4, 0.295g; Aconitum napellus D3, Belladonna D3, 0.147g each; Hepar sulphuris calcareum D6, 0.074g; Chamomilla D1, Echinacea angustifolia D1, Echinacea purpurea D1, 0.442g each.

Non-medicinal ingredients: Hydrophilic ointment base according to USP XXIII.

As always we look forward to helping you at Alive Health Centre, Supplements Plus and Morning Sun.  We hope to see you soon.  If you want to know more about Traumeel or other products do not hesitate to come on in and ask us.
