Good Nutrition = Good Prostate Health

Yes I know this is a taboo subject for the boys, so maybe the girls can help guide our gents to good prostate health.

In Australia around 3000 men die from this form of cancer. While there are thousands more treated for this and inflamed prostate. Like all disease prevention is the key rather than trying to cure the rath once it has taken hold.

There are things we can do to reduce the risk, it is recommended that from the age of around 35 -40 years our gents should start to take supplements rich in Saw palmetto it is the most researched and popular supplements for maintain good prostate health. Saw palmetto (also known as “old mans friend”) helps relieve urinary issues and helps reduce enlarged prostate.  A product called Prostality has been seen as a huge benefit to numerous men. See testimony below.

There are other nutritional sources that help prevent prostate irregularities are zinc supplements and foods rich in zinc such as pumpkin seeds (pepitas), sunflower seeds, legumes, fish and foods rich in whole-grains. Another source of foods rich in anti-oxidants are berries, strawberries and blueberries are high in quercetin which can stop and prevent enlarged prostate and cancers.

PSI Dropped from 24 to 4.

A few years ago my husband was having terrible pain and discomfort from and enlarged prostate and was on prescription medication and had to undergo invasive exploratory tests. We found Prostality and now he no longer suffers pain or discomfort and the best thing he hasn’t needed prescription medication.

His PSI level has continually gone down each year from a high 24 to 4 which is amazing. Our GP can’t understand these results but had told him to continue doing what he has been doing.

Sleep Better, Feel Better

I used to get out of bed three to four times every night. After using Prostality for just four days that became unnecessary. Now I get a full nights sleep and feeling a lot fitter. I have also found that I visit the toilet less during the day as well.

Creepy Crawly’s Could Be Affecting Your Potential Good Health!

Recently at a health seminar an Australian leading naturopath spoke about what crawls within our bodies and is potentially affecting the quality of our health. Yuck!

Parasites are common place in the human body; there are several types of nasties that could be lurking inside you.

  • worms
  • fungi
  • moulds
  • virus
  • flukes
  • bacteria

These parasites colonize in the body and steal nutrients from their host, while excreting wastes that can be toxic.  Worms are mans deadliest enemy they range from microscopic to 35 feet in length and can live for up to 20+ years.

Some of the diseases that can be associated with parasite invasion:

Do any of these symptoms or ailments sound all too familiar?

  • Bloating
  • IBS irritable bowel syndrome
  • MS
  • CFS
  • Foggy brain
  • Sinus
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sugar cravings
  • Itchy skin
  • Headaches

Or these

  • Migraine
  • Itchy eyes
  • Blurry vision
  • Colds & flu
  • Rumbling stomach
  • Mood swings
  • Floaters in front of the eye (ever see little things like this in front of your eyes ~ ~~ and just thought your eyes were tired.)
  • Night sweats
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • PMS
  • Itchy ears

And the list goes on!

So to be on the safe side eliminate parasites.

Fixing The Parasite Problem.

Remove as many harmful toxins from your food, personal care, household cleaning and remove sugar from your diet.

Supplement to enrich your body and undertake a parasite specific detox program to remove these parasites from your body.

Vitamin K Your Healthy Living Tip For Today!

Vitamin K may be “the next vitamin D” if research continues to illuminate the growing number of benefits to your health.

Dr. Cees Vermeer, one of the world’s top researchers in the field of vitamin K, founded a vitamin K research group in 1975, which is now the largest group investigating this area of nutrition science.

How many people have adequate vitamin K… care to guess?

Just about zero, according to Dr. Vermeer and other experts in the field.

Most people get just enough K from their diets to maintain adequate blood clotting, but NOT enough to offer protection against he following health problems—and the list is growing:

* Prostate cancer, lung cancer, liver cancer and leukemia
* Arterial calcification, cardiovascular disease and varicose veins
* Osteoporosis
* Brain health problems, including dementia, the specifics of which are   still being studied

Vitamin K comes in two forms, and it is important to understand the differences between them before devising your nutritional plan of attack.

Two Basic Types of Vitamin K

Vitamin K can be classified as either K1 or K2:

1. Vitamin K1: Found in green vegetables, K1 goes directly to your liver and helps you maintain a healthy blood clotting system. (This is the kind of K that infants need to help prevent a serious bleeding disorder.)

It is also vitamin K1 that keeps your own blood vessels from calcifying, and also helps your bones retain calcium and develop the right crystalline structure.
2. Vitamin K2: Bacteria produce this type of vitamin K. It is present in high quantities in your gut, but unfortunately is not absorbed from there and therefore most of it is passed out in your stool.

K2 goes straight to vessel walls, bones, and tissues other than the liver. It is present in fermented foods, particularly cheese and the Japanese food natto, which is by far the richest source of K2.

Vitamin K2 can convert to K1 in your body. As a supplement, K1 is less expensive, which is why it’s the form used for neonates.

Making matters even more complex, there are several different forms of vitamin K2.

MK8 and MK9 come primarily from dairy products. MK4 and MK7 are the two most significant forms of K2, and act very differently in your body:

* MK4 is a synthetic product, very similar to vitamin K1, and your body is capable of converting K1 into MK4. However, MK4 has a very short half-life of about one hour, making it a poor candidate as a dietary supplement. After reaching your intestines, it remains mostly in your liver, where it is useful in synthesizing blood-clotting factors.
* MK7 is a newer agent with more practical applications because it stays in your body longer; its half-life is three days, meaning you have a much better chance of building up a consistent blood level, compared to MK4 or K1. MK7 is extracted from the Japanese food called natto.

Vitamin K Research is Clearly Impressive

In 2008, a German research group discovered that vitamin K2 provides substantial protection against prostate cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer among men in the United States. According to Dr. Vermeer, men taking the highest amounts of K2 had about 50 percent less prostate cancer.

Research results are similarly encouraging for the benefits of vitamin K to your cardiac health.

In 2004, the Rotterdam Study, which was the first study demonstrating the beneficial effect of vitamin K2, showed that those who consumed 45 mcg of K2 daily lived seven years longer than those getting 12 mcg per day.

In a subsequent study called the Prospect Study, 16,000 people were followed for 10 years. Researchers found that each additional 10 mcg of K2 in the diet resulted in 9 percent fewer cardiac events.

There is also research emerging that vitamin K can help protect against brain disease. However, it is too early to say exactly what types of damage it prevents, and how, but it is an area of intense interest to vitamin K scientists right now.

Getting More Vitamin K into Your Diet

Eating lots of green vegetables will increase your vitamin K1 levels naturally, especially kale, spinach, collard greens, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts.

For vitamin K2, cheese and especially cheese curd is an excellent source. The starter ferment for both regular cheese and curd cheese contains bacteria—lactococci and proprionic acids bacteria—which both produce K2. You get the benefits of these bacteria when you consume them.

Both types of cheese have the same amount of K2, but curd cheese has less fat. If you eat 100 grams of cheese daily, you get 45 mcg of vitamin K2, which will lower your risk for heart attack by 50 percent, according to existing studies.

You can obtain all the K2 you’ll need (about 200 micrograms) by eating 15 grams of natto daily, which is half an ounce. It’s a small amount and very inexpensive. It’ll only  shrink your wallet by about two dollars a month.

If you don’t care for the taste of natto, the next best thing is a supplement. Remember you must always take your vitamin K supplement with fat since it is fat-soluble and won’t be absorbed without it.

You need not worry about overdosing on K2—people have been given a thousand-fold increase over the recommended dose over the course of three years have shown no adverse reactions (i.e., no increased clotting tendencies).

Although the exact dosing is yet to be determined, Dr. Vermeer recommends between 45 mcg and 185 mcg daily for adults. You must use caution on the higher doses if you take anticoagulants, but if you are generally healthy and not on these types of medications, I suggest 150 mcg daily.

It is quite likely that doses of several times that amount are safe for the average person, but we just lack the research to confirm it at this time.

Vitamin D is Vitamin K’s Best Friend

Dr. Vermeer makes the point that vitamin K will never be able to do its work alone. It needs collaborators—and vitamin D is an important one.

There is a synergistic effect between vitamins D and K.

These two agents work together to increase MGP, or Matrix GLA Protein, which is the protein responsible for protecting your blood vessels from calcification. In fact, MGP is so important that it can be used as a laboratory measure of your vascular and cardiac status.

If you are concerned about your bones, you must balance a nutritional triad:

1. vitamin D
2. vitamin K
3. calcium

Increasing calcium is good for your bones but not so good for your arteries, which can become calcified. Vitamin K protects your blood vessels from calcifying when in the presence of high calcium levels. So you really must pay attention to the synergism of all three of these nutrients if you want to optimize your benefits.

Laboratory Testing for Vitamin K is in its Infancy

Vitamin K measurements in blood plasma can be done accurately, but the results are really not helpful because they mainly reflect “what you ate yesterday,” according to Dr. Vermeer.

Because there are no good laboratory assessments, he and his team have developed and patented a very promising laboratory test to assess vitamin K levels indirectly by measuring circulating MGP. Their studies have indicated this to be a very reliable method to assess the risk for arterial calcification—hence cardiac risk.

They are hoping to have this test available to the public within one to two years for a reasonable price, and several labs are already interested.

Additionally, they are working on developing a home test that would be available at your neighborhood drug store.

At this time, however, there is really no commercial test that would give you meaningful information. But since nearly 100 percent of people don’t get sufficient amounts of vitamin K from their diet to reap its health benefits, you can assume you need to bump up your vitamin K levels by modifying your  diet or taking a high quality supplement.

Toss The Bottle & Save Your Health

While bisphenol A (BPA) has been banned in many countries around the world it was only last month that Australian authorities recognised BPA as potentially dangerous to human health.

While the US Food & Drug Administration has advised consumers to reduce exposure even though a major study revealed the chemical to be linked to an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes in adults.

BPA can be found in hard plastics such as baby bottles, hard plastic drink bottles, cups, containers and even the epoxy resin that often lines many food tins today.

TIPS: avoid tinned foods switch to frozen or fresh.  Switch to products in cartons such as soups and juices. Check the bottles you use. The recycle codes that usually contain BPA are 3 or 7. Use glass baby bottles and stainless steel drink bottles instead of plastics. Reheat food in glass or ceramic containers rather than plastic microwaveable containers for a good health alternative.

My last healthy living tip is to use glass canisters and containers for storing foods. That way you reduce the likely hood of toxins leaching out of plastics and into your food.

Are You Living An Optimal Healthy Life?

What does having good health mean to you?  Does it simply mean not being ill or is there more to it?  How do you react to the pressures and stresses in life? Is it easy to cope with, or does it really challenge and exhaust you?

While we might feel ok, well and not ill at all, at times we descend into a compromised state of vitality which is often quite subtle.  If we are not careful, it could in fact become quite insidious.  Ok, here is a classic example – how you react to change in your life?  Is this a constant worry for you, or do you simply embrace it?  Do you seek refuge in a few cigarettes, or few drinks, or chocolate bars to get you through the issue or challenge? Or do you take it head on and just deal with it?

Believe it or not, when we are actually at optimal health, you would be amazed at just how much energy you have, how much more emotionally balanced we feel and how much easier it is to cope with anything that is thrown at us in life.  If you’re not feeling as healthy as you thought you were, maybe you should take a sneak peak at how this can be easily and effortlessly over come.

Healthy Living Tip: Drink this and variations of this recipe regulary and avoid the colds and flu altogether.

Try adding: a stick of celery or 1/2 a beetroot, apples and parsley are all wonderful juiced and if you must even spinach (sorry but I draw the line on that one). Enjoy your own variations.

Health Fears on Kiddie Cosmetics

Herald Sun – 09 March, 2009
by Kylie Hansen

CHILDREN using kiddie makeup kits, bubble baths, nail varnish and costume jewellery may be putting their health in danger, experts have warned.

The boom in cosmetic products for children – many of them sold in toy stores – could lead to future allergy problems due to the high levels of preservatives, perfumes and other problem ingredients.

Toy stores, discount and department stores are now brimming with tiny makeup kits, nail varnishes and lip glosses aimed at girls as young as two and three.

“A child’s skin is sensitive and prone to irritation,” said Australasian College of Dermatologists spokeswoman Dr Mei Tam.

“If they’ve got eczema or broken skin you have to be really careful about these sort of products.

“They are highly perfumed and full of preservatives and if they are applied to broken skin the preservative gets into the system and your immune system can develop a reaction to it,” said Dr Tam, who is a specialist in contact allergy.

“Those stick-on plastic nails are something you can become allergic to and nail varnish contains a type of resin some people are allergic to,” she said.

Dr Tam also warned parents to take care with girls using costume jewellery.

“In places like China and other Asian countries, there are no laws preventing nickel being put in these products and this can cause an allergic reaction.

‘In the European Union there are strict rules against this. If you wear it and perspire, the nickel leaches into the skin and you can become sensitised to it.”

Cheap bubble bath contains a lot of detergent, she said, which used over time can irritate the skin.

Australian Toy Industry Association spokeswoman Beverly Jenkin said these cosmetics had to meet standards and list ingredients used.

The products, despite being sold in outlets for children, come under the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme, administered under the Federal Department of Health.

However, in the past the ACCC has recalled multiple children’s cosmetic products because they were not properly labelled and therefore posed a risk for children who were allergic to particular ingredients.

Dr Tam said parents must be educated.
