A few common signs of weak adrenal function are; overeating and weight gain, low feeling of energy, fatigue, irritability, chronic tiredness, oversleeping and frequent immune system rundown. By using the Ultimate Anti-Stress on a regular basis – in the evening – you can aid your body’s ability to replenish from the day’s unrelenting stress toll and wake up feeling refreshed!!  Another customer favourite, when all else has failed Brad King comes through!

Dr. Oz Talks About Bach Flower Remedies to Relieve Stress!

Categories: Children's Health, Sleep, Stress

Bach Flower remedies are fantastic for those moments when you do not feel at ease.  I use the spray myself right before I need to make a presentation, do a talk, run a meeting or even when I know I have a big day ahead of me.  Rescue Remedy is truly to your rescue.  We have been carrying this product at Alive Health Centre Morning Sun and Supplements Plus for years and now Dr. Oz has shed some light on this.  People are wondering where to find Bach Flower Remedies and we have it!

This combination of Bach Flower Remedies is especially beneficial when you find yourself in traumatic situations, such as, stress, emergencies, after getting bad news, before an exam or job interview and all other kind of situations where we suddenly lose balance mentally. The Remedies quickly get us back in our normal balance so that we calmly can deal with any situation.

Rescue® Remedy has been used successfully on stressful days where we suffer from impatience, tension and pressure. It has also been used successfully with children to stop a tantrum, before a speech or job interview. Rescue® Remedy helps us relax, get focused and get the needed calmness.

Many people chose to carry Rescue Remedy® in their purse, at the office, in the car or in the diaper bag. You never know when you need it.

Pregnant women in labor have made the experience easier and less traumatic by taking Rescue Remedy.

Rescue Remedy® can also be taken just before going to bed to calm a troubled mind.

Star of Bethlehem – Orithogalum umbellatum
Rock Rose – Helianthemum

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.

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.”

This is just a quick post today!  Hope you enjoyed it.  As always thank you for reading and if you have any questions find an Alive Health Centre, Supplements Plus or Morning Sun location near you!  You can also call us toll free at 1866-499-9546.

Vitamin D

Categories: Bone Health, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Immune System, Osteoporosis, Sleep, Womans Health

We all have heard a lot about Vitamin D and how important it is to have adequate amounts especially during the winter.  This article is a reminder to take your Vitamin D this winter.  Most of you know about Vitamin D, but sometimes it sits on the counter and we forget to take it.  Below will remind you of the reasons you shouldn’t forget.

Research states that Vitamin D deficiency in adults can lead to osteopenia, osteoporosis, depressed moods, sleeping problems, muscle weakness, fractures, cancers, autoimmune diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. There is also some evidence that Vitamin D may reduce several types of cancer and type-1 diabetes.  Many of us especially women walk around with tiny little fractures and silcea is a mineral that is very important to combat against osteopenia (the precursor of osteoporosis) but Vitamin D also plays a vital role in preventing fractures.  Vitamin D helps absorb your calcium so it is not not just sitting there doing nothing.  Reality is calcium is useless if it doesn’t get absorbed so make sure you take a good form of calcium, such as a calcium citrate with Vitamin D and magnesium.  Keep in mind there are even better calciums such as Coral Calcium and if you are older, already have osteoporosis, or there is osteoporosis in your family the AOR Brand Bone Basics is top notch.  At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun or Supplements Plus we can take the time to explain all the differences and we can find you what suites your needs based on gender, age, family history etc.   

So how much Vitamin D should you take?

There are many answers.  The recommended daily value still remains at 1000iu for adults.  Then there are other factors such as: age, your current health condition (for example if you have osteoporosis), and where you live.  Basically at the moment somewhere between 1000iu and 2000iu is good.  However, there are many studies where people have reversed osteoporosis with very high levels of vitamin D, and if you wish to do this see your doctor or your naturopath.   Another point about Vitamin D is many people say  “the sun gives you Vitamin D.” Remember that your body produces the Vitamin D, but when the sun is absent, your body cannot produce it. 

Good Brands?

There are many: Natural Factors, AOR Drops, Sisu Sublingual, those are some suggestions.

So keep things simple this winter, elevate your mood and keep yourself healthy by remembering to take your Vitamin D.  Vitamin D3 is what you will be looking for in the health store.  As always we look forward to helping you with your health care needs at Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus! Take care and thanks for reading.
