Detoxing for Fall: A Look at the Organ Systems

October 3rd, 2007

Detoxification is a process that occurs within our bodies on a natural and continuous basis. Detoxifying is the process of releasing accumulated Toxins and waste products that build up throughout our system. From birth, we are bombarded by Toxins, externally from environmental sources and internally, our organs give off waste products that accumulate in our body. Imbalanced emotions also play a part in polluting our system with excess chemicals such as free radicals, homocysteine and cortisol.

Detoxifying is, in many ways, an easy process. Our body does much of the Detoxification process through urination, defecation and Perspiration. As our bodies age and our immune systems weaken from illness, poor diet and/or addictive substances, we sometimes need to give our system an extra helping hand. That is why conscious detoxing is a great way back to optimum health.

For some, counting on a few cups of coffee, having a cigarette, drinking excessive alcohol or doing recreational drugs has become a familiar habit. Between all the medications, refined foods, additives, alcohol, pesticides and other chemicals we are exposed to in the environment, the ability of our systems to adapt and detoxify can become challenged.

Tocotrienols may Reduce DNA Damage and Reduce Risk of Cancer

October 3rd, 2007

by Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

This, according to a new study on Tocotrienols a less well known but important form of Vitamin E. It is still quite an uncommon ingredient in Supplements although we have been using it in Total Balance for a number of years. If complements nicely the natural form of Vitamin E that we use and improves its efficacy.

I am surprised that it has been taking so long for other manufacturers to incorporate it in their formulas. Maybe it is due to cost, as it is not cheap.

Anyway, this study specifically looked at the impact of Tocotrienols on DNA damage! They found that it had a significant beneficial impact on not only reducing the DNA damage but also helped in the repair of the DNA.

We should all do what we can to not only minimize the damage to our DNA but to also systematically repair it. This is one of the important objectives with Total Balance.

Depression treatment costs

October 3rd, 2007

Any illness brings in its wake worries about the cost of treatment. Long treatments obviously mean higher costs.

Clinical depression is one major disorder that requires extended treatment that is likely to last for a long time. Some related disorders like bipolar disorder and Anxiety Disorder require even longer treatment regimes. Treating Depression is a long and arduous process and at times treatment can last a lifetime.

United States does not have a universal health care policy. Treating Depression in certain cases can mean shelling out hefty sums from the personal pocket. Depending upon whether you have an insurance or not and the type of health insurance that you may have, the average cost of medication, psychotherapy and other treatments can amount to anything in the range of $1,500 to $4,400.

People who suffer from bipolar disorders, Anxiety Disorders and the like are likely to have a limited source of income. Better medical insurance schemes are offered to people who have higher incomes. And therefore, these people, who need medical insurance the most, are left to fund for themselves in most cases.
