Sandi Cornez's curator insight, July 27, 4:50 PM

Your liver is your body's powerful detoxifier and cleanser. When your liver health deteriorates, your other organs are affected too. Consider taking herbs from Mother Nature  before you run to your doctor or buy over the counter meds. Your body is organic and herbs are organic, not so for the drugs which cause side effects and more meds. Be proactive for your health.

 

Here's 10 top herbs for the health of your liver.

A landmark study. "Based on available data on the secondary prevention of coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and prediabetes, physical activity is potentially as effective as many drug interventions." Since science doesn't reach conclusions or offer advice, I'm going to take the leap and tell you that exercise is BETTER than drugs. It has no side effects, only beneficial ones...

Healthy Body and a Sound Mind?

Healthy Body and a Sound Mind? | Prevention & Vitality Central | Scoop.it

From the point of view of education, the effects reported here make an compelling case, since they go to the heart of learning and achievement in school. The improvements to mood and concentration enhance what could be called the mindset of learning, because fitter children tend to approach academic tasks with a more positive attitude and greater attention than their unfit peers. At the same time, the changes to the efficient functioning of the brain relate to the mechanisms of learning. In other words, the evidence from these tests suggest that physical activity can improve students' mental state while learning, and the efficiency with which they learn.

 

If a pharmaceutical drug was available that had been demonstrated to have such positive effects on children’s performance at school, I suspect that even the most cautious of parents would be lining the streets outside pharmacies. Physical activity is not a wonder drug, it has no harmful side effects, and it is free!

How to Balance Your pH to Heal Your Body

How to Balance Your pH to Heal Your Body | Prevention & Vitality Central | Scoop.it

diMany of you would most certainly agree that the pH balance is extremely important, while others would say it is essential. There are still a few who clearly state that the pH balance is a matter of life and death.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, July 11, 5:54 PM

You've probably heard the words balance your "pH". How many of you know what pH is and why it's very important for your body's health? 

 

Just remember that even though some foods are acidic and some are alkaline, it's not the foods themselves that pH refers to. The acid/alkaline balance refers to  the relative pH of blood which must be kept within a certain range around 7.4 (slightly alkaline).

 

Read this comprehensive article on pH balance.
