Independence from Monsanto

Monsanto is giant, and not a gentle one.  It may feel impossible to avoid their reach, the genetically modified Frankenfoods that they pedal, and the toxic business practices which they employ.  If not impossible, you might think that ditching Monsanto for healthier, and more sustainable options might seem like such a daunting task that it’s not even worth the effort.  But fear not!   We have a few steps that will help you avoid Monsanto, or, at the very least, cut out much of the genetically modified food in your diet.

How to Have Financial Independence

If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always gotten.  It’s time to reexamine your time management skills so that you get better results than ever before.  The average person uses 13 different methods to control and manage their time, yet we still seem to waste so much of it.  Time slips away like a slow leaking faucet.  It’s those little drips and drops of it, so small that you almost don’t even notice, that all add up to a torrent of wasted time and opportunities.  To make good use of your day, here are a few things you can do:

Independence

Do you believe it’s already July?  The year is half over (already!), we are at the height of summer, and every American is thinking about Independence Day.  For most people, our nation’s independence will be what crosses their mind, but for some of you, independence means more.  Some of you are concentrating on your own independence.  Whether it be your financial independence, independence from being told when to report to work, independence from being told when you can take your vacation,  independence from the salary cap your employer places on you, independence from the fear of being laid-off…

Alkaline Water Is Probably a Waste of Your Money

Alkaline Water Is Probably a Waste of Your Money

This article originally appeared in its entirety on healthline.com

You may have heard some of the various health claims about alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

Alkaline Water

Know The Difference
  • Alkaline water has a pH of 8 or 9.
  • Regular tap water generally has a pH of 6 to 7.

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic, and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body. Normal drinking water is generally a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water generally has a pH of 8 or 9.

Natural or Artificial?

Water that is naturally alkaline occurs when water passes over rocks – like springs – and picks up minerals, which increase its alkaline level. There are companies that sell products, like ionizers, that claim to make water alkaline through a chemical process called electrolysis. Makers of ionizers say electricity is used to separate molecules in the water that are more acidic or more alkaline. Although some doctors and researchers say these claims are not backed quality research. 

A study published by the World Health Organization cautions against drinking low-mineral content water on a regular basis.

Where Do You Get It?

Alkaline water can be bought in many grocery or health food stores. Water ionizers are sold in many large chain stores as well.

You can also make your own at home. Even though lemon and lime juice is acidic, they contain minerals that can change the composition of water. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline. Adding pH drops is another way to make water more alkaline. It’s important to use distilled water when making alkaline water because tap water or bottled water may have other additives.

Does It Really Work?

Alkaline water is a somewhat controversial topic. Many health professionals argue against its use, saying there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. According to Mayo Clinic, regular water is best for most people as there is no scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by alkaline water proponents.

However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions. For example, a 2012 study found that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 can help deactivate pepsin, which is the main enzyme that causes acid reflux. This means alkaline water may have some benefits for those who suffer from frequent heartburn.

Is It Safe?

The issue that many health professionals have with alkaline water is not its safety, but rather the health claims that are made about it.

There is not enough scientific evidence to support the use of alkaline water as a treatment for any health condition. Medical experts warn against believing all the marketing claims.

Drinking natural alkaline water is generally considered safe, since it contains natural minerals. However, you should use caution with artificial alkaline water, which likely contains fewer minerals necessary for good health than its high pH would have you believe, and overuse may leave you deficient.

Veterans Day and Memorial Day: There Is A Difference!

Happy Thursday, everyone.  My name is Steve.  As part of the quality assurance team here, some of you have talked to me on the phone when you have had questions about our products.  Others know me for my long, rambling and occasionally nonsensical health tips and articles.  Sorry for boring you with wordiness, by the way.  What you probably don’t know is that I’m also a veteran.  Which is why I decided to make this week’s article about the differences between Veterans Day, on November 11th, and Memorial Day, coming up on the last Monday of May.  And yes, they are most definitely different.  Memorial day commemorates those who have given their lives in service to their country and is a day of remembrance.  Veterans Day is the day we honor our troops, and as a veteran, I’d like to add that it’s a great day to buy a vet a beer.  Or you could just say thanks.  We’re not that picky.

The Best and Worst Foods of Summer

The Best and Worst Foods of Summer

It’s kind of a myth that summer means more exercise and healthier food choices for everyone. One eye-opening study found that kids gain weight three times faster over summer than they do the rest of the school year, thanks to a steady diet of junk food and video games.

And while there’s no comparable stat on grown-ups and weight gain, barbecues, state fairs, and waterside food vendors offer plenty of temptation. Here are the summer foods you should always avoid, and healthier options you can feel free to enjoy.

How Long Do You Have to Work Out to See Results?

The truth is, the weight didn’t come on overnight, so it is going to take you longer to see the results you want to see than you think it will. The good news is that by eating healthy and exercising, you can maximize fat loss and produce the results you want to get your best body ever.

 

Measuring & Tracking your Results

The scale is not the only way to measure your training results. In fact, the scale is likely one of the worst ways to measure your results. If you are weighing yourself everyday to see if you lost a pound, you are only fooling yourself. Water retention can cause your body weight to fluctuate by 2-3 pounds daily!

My Greatest Achievement

May is a very important month for me, because it’s a reminder of my greatest achievement.  On May 15th, 1969, my son William Deihl was born.  After my husband, Joe, passed away, Bill stepped up as a leader and the key innovator of VitaMist, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.  He has helped expand our company’s forward focused vision to new horizons.

In his life so far, Bill had earned a Masters in Nutritional Science and a Ph.D. In Metaphysics. He’s traveled around the country for years as the nutrition expert, and was a even a guest teacher for bariatric doctors and nurses at Princeton University.

Mother's Day Rose Quartz Pendant

Mother’s Day is a day of celebration.  On this day, we honor our own mothers, as well as maternal bonds and the influence mothers have on our day to day lives. Through the years, the word mom has evolved beyond just our biological mothers. On this day, it’s important to honor its energy by nurturing all the moms and motherly influences in our lives – Mother Earth and all the women who hold a special place in your heart as wisdom keepers; the ones you go to when you need another opinion or advice. There are many people who have never had children of their own, but act as a mom to many, giving kindness, love and compassion to all they meet.
