|Essentials to know... a common sense approach to better health.

Essential to know - Essential to act
1a) FACTS: COST TO THE NATION
Lecithin is the basis for a fluid that helps the brain and nerve cells to talk to each other. LECITHIN is needed by every tiny living cell in the body as part of the covering around the cell. It keeps the cell coverings (membranes) soft and able to use fats and (good) cholesterol.
Cells require oxygen and proper hydration to absorb nutrients. Nutrients from (healthy) food allow the cells to generate the energy we need to perform all our day to day "routine." This "Cellular Energy" also allows for the elimination of toxins and waste. (Cellular waste products are formed as a by-product of cellular respiration, a series of processes and reactions that generate energy for the cell, in the form of Adenosine-triphosphate" or ATP.
When you ingest foods and liquids, the end products of digestion and assimilation of nutrients often results in an acid or alkaline-forming effect - the end products are sometimes called acid ash or alkaline ash.
Also, as your cells produce energy on a continual basis, a number of different acids are formed and released into your body fluids. These acids - generated by your everyday metabolic activities - are unavoidable; as long as your body has to generate energy to survive, it will produce a continuous supply of acids.
So there are two main forces at work on a daily basis that can disrupt the pH of your body fluids - these forces are the acid or alkaline-forming effects of foods and liquids that you ingest, and the acids that you generate through regular metabolic activities.
What if one of the side effects of medicinal drugs was to acidify the body? Could that explain the numerous "other" side effects of most drugs? Could it be true that if the body pH drops below 6.4, enzymes are deactivated, digestion does not work properly; vitamins, minerals and food supplements cannot effectively assimilate.
Why do most of us need probiotics on a daily basis?
Knowing what we have read in paragraph 1 about our chances of getting a chronic disease, it would be foolish on our part not to take some "preventative" measures.
"A good case can be made for the notion that health depends on a balance between oxidative stress and antioxidant defenses. Aging and age-related diseases reflect the inability of our antioxidant defenses to cope with oxidative stress over time. The good news is that with strong antioxidant defenses, long life without disease should be possible."
When the liver is stressed, anger, depression and irritability are more likely to arise. When a person’s liver is functioning harmoniously, the person usually stays calm and relaxed.

Stress Understanding & Management
Epinephrine is both a hormone and a neurotransmitter. It tenses our muscles, increases our heart rate and blood pressure, dilates the bronchial and speeds up our breathing, shuts down digestion and other functions not essential to immediate survival, and otherwise prepares the body for action.
Cortisol reduces inflammation, enabling us to cope with injury and pain. Although its role in reducing inflammation is important, too much cortisol causes premature aging, depresses immune function and causes us to lose muscle and gain weight. These stress hormones also cause a rise in blood sugar levels and an increase in blood clotting factors.
With this understanding, it's easy to see how chronic, long term stress can become a factor in numerous health problems, including poor digestive function, constipation, tension headaches, neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, ulcers, high blood pressure, blood clotting, increased risk of infections, asthma, diabetes, excess weight, and even cancer and autoimmune disorders. In fact, it is probable that a large percentage of all the illnesses we experience have a stress component.
If stress can cause so many health problems, it's obvious that we need to learn how to reduce stress in our lives. We may not be able to eliminate the stressful situations in our life, but we can reduce the stressful effects these problems cause in our body.
