Hello,

Truisms about in the field of health and nutrition. We have been told for years now that we need calcium to prevent osteoporosis, but recent evidence suggests that taking extra calcium may not be all that healthy. In fact it may even raise your risk of heart disease!

Calcium has to be balanced with magnesium to be absorbed properly. There also has to be adequate vitamin-d levels for calcium to be assimilated properly. Recent evidence indicates that an imbalance of calcium can increase your risk of heart disease.

Few people know that vitamin-k2 is also essential to utilizing calcium properly. K2 is one of THE most important (but least known) nutrients in preventing heart disease and also osteoporosis, because it is needed to properly absorb and metabolize calcium.

Check out this book on calcium and vitamin k2 by Kate Rheaume Bleue at this link:

http://www.age-better.info/calcium-and-vitamin-k2

This is the Kindle version for those of you who live in far away places. You can still access it as a download from Amazon. The book received 5 stars over 73 reviews! It doesn’t get better than that.

It will tell you what you need to know about k2, how to get it in your diet and how it enables you to efficiently utilize calcium for building bones while avoiding atherosclerosis.

I urge you to educate yourself on this topic. It could very well be a matter of life and death!

Do you have a disease, or other medical condition that you or someone close to you is suffering from that you would like me to research and write about? Then please let me know. I can’t give medical advice because I am not a doctor.

But I CAN research things and look for the most cutting edge information and research on that topic and present it to you and everyone who reads this newsletter. Our knowledge is advancing rapidly, and I am here to report on the very latest on health, wellness, and anti-aging for everyone who reads this newsletter!

So if you have questions, or comments, please share them with me. I love hearing from you!

I love science fiction, especially the “super hero” genre. I just saw the “man of Steel” the 2013 version of the Superman saga. I had heard pro and con about this film, but I have to say I was quite impressed by this film.

The film was directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill as Superman and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Cavill’s Superman though different than Chris Reeves, retains the essence of who and what Superman is.

He presents a deeply principled individual of great power who understands the necessity of restraint. He is (just like Chris Reeves) the consummate gentleman, who puts the well being of others before himself. This is the kind of selfless persona that you expect from this character.

Lois Lane played by Amy Adams is a far cry from the previous versions of that character. She is tough and resourceful in her own way and gets into the action, helping Superman escape from captivity by General Zod.  Adams in my view does a great job with this iconic character!

The action sequences are mind blowing thanks to state of the art CGI. The villains (General Zod and company) seem harsher and more violent than in past films, and the ending which I will not give away, follows this pattern.

If you are up for a good time at the movies, I would highly recommend “Man of Steel.” It’s great fun and will not disappoint.

Do you remember Vanessa Williams? She was the first “black” Miss America and had to give up the title because it was found that she had posed nude years before, and the pictures surfaced and caused a scandal.

She rebounded from this experience to become the most successful entertainer of any former Miss America.

She recorded a music video for the song called “Save The Best For Last.”

What a beautiful song and performance by a very lovely woman.

I gave some serious thought to this weeks quote,  and in light of the recent revelations about the US government spying on it’s own citizens, I thought this quote from John F. Kennedy fit perfectly.

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.”

John F. Kennedy

As I sit here in the middle of June,  it is a comfortable 65 degrees in Somerville, and while I am not complaining, I don’t remember it being this cool so late in the season when I was a kid.

I honestly think we are entering an era of cooler weather, but then again, it’s hard to tell. I like the fact that I haven’t even put my air conditioners in yet…it’s been that comfortable. I do hope it continues, although I am sure we will be in for some sweltering days soon.

#~#~#

I’d like to mention a few things I think are important in the area of health and wellness. These are things that if you do them, you will have 80-90% of the health issues covered. For those that want to do 100%, that’s great, but start with the basics.

With that said here are three things you should do to live longer, and healthier.

~

Get enough vitamin-d in winter and summer. Vitamin-d is not really a vitamin, it’s a hormone called cholcalciferol. It’s used in many critical processes in your body, and if you don’t get enough of it your risk for things like cancer and heart disease go up!

People of African ancestry that live in cooler climates are especially vulnerable to deficiencies in vitamin-d because their darker skin filters out the UV light the body needs to bio-synthesize this critical hormone.

Avoid refined sugar in all forms. This includes high fructose corn syrup, Agave nectar, maltodextrin, ect. Sugar raises blood glucose levels, which in turn raise insulin levels. Insulin is a “pro-inflammatory” hormone that significantly raises your risk for cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses.

http://www.longevity-and-antiaging-secrets.com/normal-blood-sugar-levels.html

Processed foods are largely a form of refined sugar, since they are mostly grain products that break down rapidly in your blood stream, spiking your blood sugar and insulin levels which in turn aggravate inflammation and promote chronic disease.

~

I think that grounding or “Earthing” should be a very important part of your daily routine. Think of grounding as receiving antioxidants from the Earth all of the time you are grounded, and you will see why this practice is so important.

http://www.longevity-and-antiaging-secrets.com/body-grounding.html

Grounding helps you establish the proper electromagnetic balance in your body, which protects you from free radical damage and slows down the aging process. There is probably no single thing that is more beneficial to you than grounding.

~

You might wonder why I didn’t mention things like getting enough sleep, and exercise, but truthfully, if you do the above 3 things, you will likely be able to sleep a lot better. As far as exercise, most people do it incorrectly and that can have negative results.

Exercise has two real benefits, that it controls blood sugar, and helps maintain muscle and bone density. If you avoid sugar, and get into the habit of grounding every day, this will go a long way toward controlling blood sugar.

It will also help maintain the function of your endocrine glands, which produce the anabolic hormones that maintain your muscle tissue. So all exercise really does is to signal your hormonal system to produce certain hormones.

Don’t get me wrong, exercise (if done right) is still valuable, but if you do the other things mentioned, you will remain HEALTHY and ACTIVE for all of your life, and thus will be getting your exercise in the process, and that’s the key!

Oleta Adams is an amazing singer. Her sultry voice and soaring vocals will leave you breathless in this live performance of her hit song “Get Here,” with Eric Marienthal on saxaphone.
