    If you ever feel that you’re not as healthy as you should be or always feeling very tired, it is most likely due to oxidative stress.

    What is oxidative stress?

    Oxidative stress is essentially an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.

    The process of oxidation happens as our bodies metabolize (or process) the oxygen that we breathe and our cells produce energy from it. This process also produces free radicals –molecules that interact with the molecules within our cells resulting in damage (or stress) to nearby cells, mitochondria  and DNA.

    Free radicals are normal and necessary to some degree. In addition to causing some damage, they also stimulate repair. It is only when too many free radicals are produced, and they overwhelm the repair processes, that it becomes an issue. That is what we call oxidative stress.

    Oxidation happens under a number of circumstances including:

    • when our cells use glucose to make energy
    • when the immune system is fighting off bacteria and creating inflammation
    • when our bodies detoxify pollutants, pesticides, and cigarette smoke

    In fact, there are millions of processes taking place in our bodies at any one moment that can result in oxidation.

    Oxidation also increases when we are physically and/or emotionally stressed.  I am not very good in handling emotional and physical stress, thus I kick myself to exercise five times a week, reduce meat intake, eat more fruits and vegetables and religiously take my most trusted supplements.

    What are free radicals?

    A free radicals is an oxygen containing molecule that has one or more unpaired electrons, making it highly reactive with other molecules.

    Oxygen by-products are relatively unreactive but some of these can undergo metabolism within the biological system to give rise to these highly reactive oxidants. Not all reactive oxygen species are harmful to the body. Some of them are useful in killing invading pathogens or microbes.

    However, free radicals can chemically interact with cell components such as DNA, protein or lipid and steal their electrons in order to become stabilized. This, in turn, destabilizes the cell component molecules which then seek and steal an electron from another molecule, therefore triggering a large chain of free radical reactions.

    What are antioxidants?

    Every cell that utilizes enzymes and oxygen to perform functions is exposed to oxygen free radical reactions that have the potential to cause serious damage to the cell. Antioxidants are molecules present in cells that prevent these reactions by donating an electron to the free radicals without becoming destabilized themselves. An imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants is the underlying basis of oxidative stress.

    Damaged caused by oxidative stress

    Oxidative stress leads to many pathophysiological conditions in the body. Some of these include neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, gene mutations and cancers, chronic fatigue syndrome, fragile X syndrome, heart and blood vessel disorders, atherosclerosis, heart failure, heart attack and inflammatory diseases.

    Signs of oxidative stress occurring in your body

    1. Fatigue
    2. Memory loss and/or brain fog
    3. Muscle and/or joint pain
    4. Wrinkles and grey hair
    5. Decreased eye sight
    6. Headaches and sensitivity to noise
    7. Susceptibility to infections

    How to reduce oxidative stress?

    You need to boost your antioxidant defense system so that it can become balanced with free radical production. Here are some ways to reduce oxidative stress:

    1) Decreasing Exposure to Oxidation

    Oxidation increases when we are exposed to stress, toxins, and infections. It is also increased by sugar and chemicals, so the more you can minimize your exposure to these things, the better – so choosing organic foods and avoiding toxins in your environment makes a big difference. Reducing stress helps too and can be done with what I refer to as “daily stress remedies”.

    2) Boost my body with IZUMIO hydrogen water.

    Many claim that they take the best antioxidant formula supplements and although some are effective, none of them have the ability to act in the multiple ways that molecular hydrogen does inside your cells.

    IZUMIO

    3) Avoid sugar and processed foods while balancing your blood sugar levels

    When the body has to process sugar it also creates oxidation and the more sugar we eat, the more oxidation happens. Processed foods often contain sugar and/or other chemicals that also result in oxidation. Eating large and infrequent meals also creates more oxidative stress, so balancing your blood sugar by eating smaller, frequent meals, also helps.

    4) Prevent infections

    When the immune system is fighting off an infection, it ends up creating oxidation which is why, when you get sick, it drains your body of energy.  I know I am about to fall sick when I feel lethargic, sleepy and extremely thirsty.  That is when I will pump in antioxidants and hydrogen water into my body, while cutting down on meat, processed food and increasing consumption of fruits and vegetables.

    5) Allow time for daily stress remedies

    It seems so simple, but it really pays off. That’s why you need to find time to take breaks in the day – to give your body a chance to recover. Be sure to honor the breaks in your schedule (or create them) and take them as a chance to enjoy the outdoors, breathe, and re-center. These are some ideas for daily stress remedies:

    • Exercise – rain or shine, I make time to exercise 5x a week in the form of swimming and jogging.
    • Meditation
    • Talking with a friend
    • Enjoying nature
    • Journaling
    • Watching a funny show
    • Taking a walk.
    • Engaging in whatever activities that give you pleasure.  Retail therapy helps me a lot in de-stressing!

    6) Avoid toxins

    Choose organic foods and avoid cigarettes, candles, hair and nail salons, carpet, exhaust fumes and plastic. Check your personal care and cleaning products for toxic ingredients and replace them with non-toxic alternatives. Sulfate and paraben are some of the harsh chemicals in shampoos that you should avoid.

    7) Increasing Antioxidants

    No matter what you to do avoid them, you are going to be exposed to some toxins and stress, so your next step is to increase the antioxidants you have in your system either by helping your body make more, or by consuming them in food or supplements.  Antioxidants’ role is to block oxidation. They squelch it and make it non-harmful to our body.

    One supplement that I am currently consuming and find that it helps to strengthen my immune system and that of my kids is Super Lutein.

    SUPER LUTEIN delivers six carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin, crocetin, a-carotene, B-carotene and lycopene), anthocyanin and DHA to the body.

    The first seven are all phytochemicals, and the last is an omega-3 fatty acid derived from fish oil. The carotenoids and anthocyanin are antioxidants that actively play a part in neutralizing the free radicals created through oxidizing processes triggered by the ingestion of toxins and other harmful substances. This helps to prevent damage to vital organs, maintain healthy skin and vision, and help protect the body from illness and disease.

    Important nutrients are normally absorbed by your body through healthy foods and vitamins, but there are many people who don’t eat nutritious foods, or even regular meals. If you’re daily diet is lacking in essential nutrients, natural health supplements can help your body replace what it needs.

    A poor diet without adequate amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fats can cause nutritional deficiencies. Over time, these deficiencies can result in a variety of health problems that affect your bones, heart, digestion, skin and mental health. Because your body stores nutrients to use them as needed, nutritional deficiencies can go undetected for a long period of time. If you’re not eating a well-balanced diet, it’s important to know the warning signs and symptoms of nutritional deficiencies.

    What are the Symptoms?

    The symptoms of nutritional deficiencies can vary based on the specific nutrients that are lacking in your diet. Since general symptoms mimic the symptoms of many illnesses, it may be necessary to visit your doctor for a blood test that includes a complete blood count. This is the only way a nutritional deficiency can be diagnosed. Here are some of the symptoms to watch out for:

    * Weakness
    * Fatigue
    * Dizziness
    * Sleepiness or insomnia
    * Constipation
    * Irregular heart rhythms
    * Poor concentration
    * Memory loss
    * Depression
    * Hair thinning or loss
    * Palor or pale skin

    Most health problems caused by nutritional deficiencies can be reversed with proper eating habits, a healthy diet and supplements, but severe or long-term deficiencies may contribute to permanent health problems.

    Common Nutritional Deficiencies

    Iron – Iron deficiency can cause anemia, since iron helps to produce healthy red blood cells. Red meat, egg yolks and dark green, leafy vegetables are all high in iron.

    Vitamin A – Vitamin A is important to good eye health. Vitamin A deficiencies and eye problems can be prevented with a diet that includes green and yellow fruits and vegetables and daily vitamin supplements.

    Vitamins B1 and B3 – Vitamin B1 (thiamine) builds healthy nerves and muscles. A deficiency can lead to heart problems. Vitamin B3 (niacin) is important for healthy skin and good digestion. A deficiency can lead to pellagra and gastrointestinal problems. Green vegetables, fish and whole grains are high in B vitamins.

    Calcium – Calcium is essential for strong bones, teeth, muscles and nerves. Calcium deficiencies can lead to osteoporosis, tooth loss and heart problems. Green leafy vegetables, calcium-fortified grains and dairy products are excellent sources of calcium.

    You think you are healthy, but you don’t feel energetic and not in the mood to do much. You struggle to find the energy to get through the day. You’re irritable. Your stomach isn’t acting right — it’s bloated and you belch a lot. And all those nagging headaches!

    These types of ailments affect many of us in our daily lives. They are not serious enough to warrant a trip to the doctor — or maybe you tried only to be told there was nothing wrong — but they still tend to drag you down, wearing away your resistance and leaving you feeling like you’re just getting old.

    Well, it probably has nothing to do with you aging. Instead, your body may be surrounded by too much toxins accumulated over the years.  Your body still collects toxins when you expose yourself to free radicals  from the food you eat, cleaning products and toiletries you use or from environmental toxins.

    Toxins have become an inescapable part of our everyday lives. In the previous decade there have been roughly 100,000 different chemicals used in the United States. They’re used commercially in the food we eat, the medicine we take, and general house care products that appear completely innocent.

    Studies by the Environmental Working Group recently discovered that even unborn babies can’t avoid pollution in our toxin-laden society. They found traces of more than 200 commercial chemicals within the umbilical cords before birth. You might not be able to avoid the toxins but knowing where they come from and how to treat them will help reduce the impact of toxicity significantly.

    Signs that You Have Too Many Toxins in Your Body.  
    Listed below are a few of the most common signs of exposure to too much toxins.

    Sleep disorders like insomnia and restlessness
    Stubborn weight gain
    Constipation
    Body odor and foul breath
    Persisting exhaustion
    Worsening inflammatory problems like arthritis and asthma
    Trouble with digestion
    Development of ulcers or hemorrhoids
    Increase in acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions
    Loss of mental clarity and motivation
    Muscle and joint pain
    Worsened PMS symptoms
    Congestion
    Sensitivity to scents
    Muscle aches and pains

    How To Detox Toxins From Your Body – Easy Steps for Optimal Detoxification

    1. Reduce Exposure – The first and most obvious step to take is modifying your routine to reduce your exposure to the chemicals. Analyze the sources listed above and try to minimize the pollution you encounter throughout the day. You can start by avoiding these most toxic food ingredients and avoiding these fake foods.

    2. Stay Hydrated – Water is an essential tool for your body to flush out the chemicals you are exposed to. Purchase a filter to make sure your water is pure and make sure you drink it in regular intervals. A minimum of 8-10 cups of water per day is recommended.   Water enriched with hydrogen like Izumio is very beneficial too.  The hydrogen in the water acts to scavenge free radicals in your body.

    3. Go Organic – Switch up that shopping list and ditch the processed foods. Look for organic sources of fruit and vegetables and try to avoid retailers that mass produce it. This will decrease the presence of chemical fertilizers and pesticides that are used for commercial gain. Green vegetables and most fruits have effective detoxifying qualities.

    4. Maintain Healthy Digestion – Get the right amount of fiber in your diet and make sure that you use the bathroom regularly. The average person should move their bowels 1-2 times each day to prevent toxin buildup. You can make you own digestive detox smoothie.

    5. Exercise – Getting active will fire up your circulation and turn your body into a toxin flushing machine. Going for runs, swimming, playing sports, or simply getting out to walk around once in a while will help keep you in shape and away from body toxicity.

    6. Supplements – There are health supplements out there that will help you reduce toxicity within your body. For example: spirulina and chlorella are two kinds of blue-green algae that are effective at binding and removing toxins from your body, and they work well for detoxing from heavy metal exposure.  You can also choose a supplement that’s high in carotenoids like Super Lutein.  Super Lutein are capsules which contain 6 important carotenoids.

    About a week after I started taking Izumio hydrogen water and Super Lutein, I started to have rashes on my right arm. The rashes first erupted with an itch, followed by a layer of bumpy rash on the surface of the skin. I knew that the rashes are one of the symptoms of a body detox, where the body will eliminate toxins from within.

    Initially, I could not understand why the rashes appeared only on my right arm – not left arm and not anywhere else. Then it suddenly dawned on me that only my right arm was problematic! I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) on my right hand when Alycia was only 2 months old. The CTS went away  a few months later (coincidentally) when I was taking antibiotics for severe bronchitis. But the CTS has now appeared in another form – hand numbness with pins and needles. Every single morning. It is so bad that on some mornings, I could not even lift my arm up.  See how intelligent the products work. They will heal the part of the body that requires repairing.  Though I still have pins and needles on my right arm now, they are not as intense as it used to be. I am curious to know how long I need to consume the products before my hand is totally healed.

    Cass displayed more extreme detox symptoms. A week after taking Izumio hydrogen water (3 packs a day), she experienced leg pain, headache, mild body aches, watery stools and sore throat.  The symptoms lasted for about 3 days. Then I began to see positive reactions in her urine leakage problem. Within a week of taking Izumio, she could be diaper-free at home – all the time during her waking hours!   Previously, she was on diapers / sanitary pads all the time.   However, she still needs to wear diapers when she is in school and when we are out. I will gradually move to the 2nd Hurdle and 3rd Hurdle set out in our Target Chart where we will have to work on getting her to hold her pee when she exerts energy to do strenuous activities and simple things like coughing and sneezing.  Cass told me just now that she wanted to try to wear just a panty when we next go out for lunch / dinner.  That’s my girl – ambitious and determined!

    My right arm with bumpy patches of rashes.  They broke out yesterday.  The rashes are drying up now.

     

    Symptoms Of A Whole Body Detox
    When you begin to detoxify, the cells in your body start to eliminate toxic substances. However, before they make their final exit, the toxins are released into the bloodstream then carried through the circulatory system and this may result in other physical symptoms.  Some of these symptoms include body aches and pains, cravings or withdrawal, nausea or vomiting, clogged sinuses, constipation or diarrhea, coughing, fever, flu or cold-type symptoms, bad breath, gas, headaches and stomach aches. Toxins are often eliminated through the skin as well and this can result in acne, rashes, or other skin issues. All of these symptoms do not occur for everyone, but it is at least good to know what to expect ahead of time or what others sometimes experience during a whole body detox.

    Irritability and Moodiness
    A whole body detox can cause excessive irritability and moodiness. It is actually the toxins in the body that cause this problem in the first place. Detox symptoms are simply manifestations of the body’s self-cleansing and self-healing process to get rid of toxins. When you begin the detox, all the toxins get pulled out of your system so the irritability and moodiness can become much worse before they get better, though it will only be for a short period of time.

    View it like cleaning a house. In the process of cleaning, everything becomes more messy and cluttered than before you started cleaning. But in order to enjoy a clean house you have to deal with the messiness in the cleaning process. Likewise, in order to help with irritability and moodiness, you have to get past the beginning phase of the whole body detox.

    Fatigue
    Fatigue is another common symptom of a whole body detox. This includes having a lack or even loss of energy. The severity of this symptom depends on what your lifestyle is like before the detox and how quickly you make the change into the detox.  If you more gradually start a detox and prepare your body ahead of time, you will not be as negatively affected by symptoms.

    Other Physical Symptoms
    When you begin to detoxify, the cells in your body start to eliminate toxic substances. However, before they make their final exit, the toxins are released into the bloodstream then carried through the circulatory system and this may result in other physical symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:
    body aches and pains,
    cravings or withdrawal
    nausea or vomiting,
    clogged sinuses,
    constipation or diarrhea,
    coughing,
    fever,
    flu or cold-type symptoms,
    bad breath,
    gas,
    headaches
    stomach aches.
    Toxins are often eliminated through the skin as well and this can result in acne, rashes, or other skin issues.

    All of these symptoms do not occur for everyone, but it is at least good to know what to expect ahead of time or what others sometimes experience during a whole body detox.

    I still get the hand numbness and tingling sensation on my hands, especially on my right hand every morning when I wake up. I notice that the more I use the hand to carry heavy things, the more severe the hand numbness and tingling sensation will get the next morning.

    I try not to carry heavy things but sometimes I cannot help it. Carrying heaving things as well as sleeping on my side will aggravate the hand numbness that I experience every morning. The numbness could be a spin off from the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that attacked me two months after I gave birth to Alycia.

    I have tried several products that are supposedly good for the hand numbness but none of them worked. Perhaps I should try magnetic therapy bracelet as recommended by my friend.

    Pretty and therapeutic.  I wonder if this magnetic therapy bracelet can treat my hand numbness. Should I give it a try?

    Hearing aids can give a much-needed boost to the quality of life of individuals who suffer from hearing loss. No matter why any person is losing the ability to hear well, it affects the way that person functions. It is just like losing the ability to see or smell. The world becomes different. Long ago, that is the way the world would have stayed. Now, just looking at things like the Miracle Ear twitter account is enough to see how much the world of hearing loss has changed. Many people have been able to restore their hearing with the help of a hearing device.

    Causes of Hearing Loss
    Hearing loss can happen suddenly or over time. A common reason for a slow decline in hearing is age. According to the Mayo Clinic, nearly half of individuals over 75 have hearing difficulties. However, hearing loss that happens with age may be caused not by age but by repeated exposure to loud sounds, genetics and even personal hygiene. Hearing loss can also appear at birth for a number of reasons. Causes for hearing loss during the rest of life include damage to the eardrum, infection and growths inside of the ear.

    How Hearing Aids Help
    Most causes of long-term hearing loss are irreversible. Damage to hearing structures, age, etc., are all things that people have yet to solve. So how does a person regain hearing? People who are not fully deaf (and some that are in the case of more advanced technology) can be helped by devices that amplify noise and transfer the sound to the existing structures within the ear and make the sound clearer to the listener.

    Types of Hearing Aids
    It is important to know that not all types of hearing aid will work for particular types of hearing loss. Furthermore, some types have more functionality, discretion and clarity than others do. Speaking to a professional is a good idea before choosing which hearing aid is best for a wearer’s needs.

    Clip-on hearing aids fit over the back of the ear. Most of these devices are quite large and visible, but are an option for most individuals with hearing loss. Open fit hearing aids clip on the back of the ear, but are smaller than other clip-on hearing devices. They do not require filling the ear canal, so there is less obstruction in the ear. However, the device loses some of its potential with this design. It may not have controls, such as volume control, because it is so small. It is also best when low-frequency hearing is still at normal range.

    Hearing aids that fit in the canal and in the ear are more discreet than clip on hearing aids. Some are almost imperceptible. Depending on the fit and design, these will often feature capabilities such as volume control, though some will have flaws such as interference from wind. Nonetheless, there are many options that fit in the ear and they will suit any level of hearing loss that is treatable with a hearing aid.

    In our household, white sugar is not used.  White sugar has gained such bad reputation in recent years that more people are aware of its negativeness now. Recent studies and articles have suggested that white sugar feeds cancer cells and too much white sugar causes cancer.  In our household, we only use organic raw brown sugar (very scarcely used in cooking and always reduced in baking) and lately, I am starting to use Agave Nectar.

    Being a PCOS sufferer since 2001, I have since cut down on white sugar and white flour products. PCOS sufferers have a disorder with insulin, a hormone that controls the change of sugar, starches and other food into energy for the body to use or store. Many women with PCOS have too much insulin in their bodies because they have problems using it. Excess insulin appears to increase production of androgen. High androgen levels can lead to acne, excessive hair growth, weight gain and infertility. I suffered from all these symptoms (except for excessive hair growth) at the height of my battle with PCOS 12 years ago.

    I use Agave Nectar in many of my meat dishes. I also use it as a bread spread. Agave Nectar’s combination with butter on toast is delightfully yummy!  I find that the taste of Agave is somewhat similar to maple syrup and maltose.

    agave-nectar.jpg

    One of the most health-promoting properties of agave nectar is its favorable glycemic profile. Its sweetness comes primarily from a complex form of fructose called inulin. Fructose is the sugar that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. The carbohydrate in agave nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweetness without the unpleasant “sugar rush” and unhealthful blood sugar spike caused by many other sugars. Agave nectar is a delicious natural sweetener that can be used moderately – by dieters, some diabetics, and health conscious cooks – to replace high-glycemic and refined sugars.

    Modern medical study has confirmed agave’s remedial properties. Agave nectar applied to the skin has been found effective against pyogenic (pus producing) bacteria such as Staph aureus. The tradition of adding salt to the nectar has been found to further boost its anti-microbial property. Agave nectar has also been proven effective against enteric (intestinal) bacteria.

    Health supplements are a great way to keep your body working the way you want it to. The internet has made it much easier to get access to health supplements, which are generally only sold at specialized stores. However, the reasons to shop online are only increasing with time.

    The first reason to shop online is availability. Health shops aren’t found in smaller cities, and oftentimes there will only be one health shop to an area. This means that if you can’t find what you want at your local health shop, you’re out of luck.

    The second reason is pricing. Prices tend to be higher in brick-and-mortar health shops for the same reason that availability is slim: because there are so few health stores, there is no competition to keep prices low among them.

    Lastly, you can find a great many deals online that won’t be found in-person. You can find supplement coupons at Paramount-Supplements.com, for instance. Coupons online tend to let you save a flat percentage off any purchase, and unlike in-store coupons off the web, they tend to apply to anything you might order. This makes ordering large quantities of supplements at a time an attractive and cost-effective option.

    These are just a few of the most notable advantages to shopping online. Building a customer history with a given online retailer can also have benefits, and this is all to say nothing of the convenience of having things delivered to your door. Health supplements are a boon to any health-conscious individual, and the advent of online shopping is only making it easier to bring them home.

    Whenever I travel, I always bring along my lip balm as travelling in an air-cond car and sleeping in an air-cond room dry up my lips and sides of my mouth and cause them to crack, peel and this hurt me terribly. This time, I had forgotten to put my Burt’s Bees lip balm and my lips started to crack. My left toe had cracked skin too. But thankfully, I remembered to pack 2 disks of Melagel Topical Balm in my make-up bag!! So I decided to apply Melagel onto my lips, sides of my mouth and toe. The next morning, the cracks on my lips have almost closed. So were the cracks at the side of my mouth and toe (I have extremely dry skin and air cond aggravates the problem). Really amazing! Next time, no need to bring lip balm or antiseptic creams when I travel. Melagel is my all-purpose wound healer! You really gotta try it to believe it!

    MelaGel contains 23% T36-C5 Melaleuca Oil along with the best, most natural cocoa butter, beeswax, and wheat germ oil. Also includes vitamins A, D3, and E, each complementing each other and invigorating your dry skin.
