ASEA for Athletes

It’s no secret to athletes that even a small increase in their ability to perform or recover can make a significant difference in achieving their goals. ASEA, the original and only Redox Signaling product available today, provides the body with two perfectly balanced sets of reactive molecules – the same molecules produced naturally by the mitochondria in every cell of our body. These vitally important molecules support the production of the ATP energy that fuels our cells, help activate antioxidants, minimize cellular damage, enhance cellular communication, and speed the healing response – all functions critical to athletic performance, endurance, and recovery.

Choosing an Orthopedic Brace

Orthopedic braces are medical devices designed to address musculoskeletal issues that may arise from disease, a congenital condition, or an injury. They are used to properly align, correct the position, support, stabilize, and protect certain parts of the body (particularly the muscles, joints, and bones) as they heal from injury or trauma. Orthopedic braces are available for many parts of the body, including knees, shoulders, back, hands, and feet. A qualified medical professional can determine what type of orthopedic brace is ideal for you, as well as the fit, type of support, function, and level of stability or protection.

Safe for the Holidays

Keeping you or your loved ones safe this holiday season should be a top priority. One way to do that is to use a personal medical alarm. Personal medical alarms are recommended not just for seniors, but for anyone who has a disability or who suffers from a medical condition that could put them at risk for falling while at home. Statistics show that 60% of falls occur in the home, so a personal medical alarm can help provide independence and a sense of safety for anyone who could be at risk. An alarm can also make a thoughtful gift!

Urinary Tract Infection Prevention!

The Powerful Little Black Seed!

Magnesium Deficiency?

Symptoms of Magnesium deficiency include restless leg syndrome, irritability, and insomnia. Some experts estimate that over 80% of the population are deficient in Magnesium, while others argue it’s closer to 95%. Either way, the statistics aren’t good, and it is something we need to remedy. That’s where Magnesium Premium Lotion by Pure Joy Naturals comes in. This gentle concentration of magnesium chloride is a nourishing natural skin product which is fragrance-free and contains Arnica essential oil for effective symptomatic relief. It takes advantage of the absorptive properties of your skin (your body’s largest organ), putting it to work so you can reap the benefits.

Do You Suffer From Vertigo?

Vertigo is a sensation of spinning dizziness. It is not, as many people maintain, a fear of heights. It is often associated with looking down from a great height but can refer to any temporary or ongoing spells of dizziness caused by problems in the inner ear or brain. If your Vertigo is neurologically based and not an inner ear issue, consider wearing neurological socks or insoles. These are designed to help increase balance and mobility. Perhaps they may be a good fit for you.

Smart in Everything but Reading?

Children who are considered bright underachievers often have vision problems that make reading difficult. Sometimes they’re described as auditory learners because they can remember things they’ve heard much faster and easier than anything they’ve read. A clear sign that a vision problem may be at the root of your child’s difficulties is poor performance on written or standardized tests. It may surprise you to learn that many children who have vision problems interfering with learning actually have 20/20 eyesight (with or without glasses). A Developmental Vision Evaluation is needed to determine if a vision problem is interfering with reading.

Holiday Health for Seniors

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can be hard for everyone, but can especially take a toll on seniors and their health. It’s important to continue making healthy, balanced meal choices and working to stay well hydrated during the holidays. Stick to any dietary restrictions you may have, even at family gatherings. If hosting gatherings becomes too difficult, have other family members take on hosting duties. Ensure the busyness of the holidays doesn’t result in clutter that could be a trip hazard, and be sure to take frequent breaks and stay well rested despite all of the excitement. Wishing all of you a safe and happy holiday season!

It helps keep things in perspective. 4. It can boost confidence and optimism. 5. It can reduce stress and boost the immune system. 6. It can help get rid of negative feelings.
