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.

Exercise Won’t Help You Lose Weight. But It Will Help You Live Longer.

Exercise Won’t Help You Lose Weight.  But It Will Help You Live Longer.

How do you lose weight?  Diet and exercise.  That much has been ingrained in us since youth.  So you take up a fad diet, get a gym membership, toil away for weeks and are left wondering why the formula for weight loss does not work for you.  It turns out, you’re not so different from everybody else.  Over the past several years, studies have shown us that half of what we learned about weight loss is wrong. 

As it turns out, exercise is great for your overall health, immune system, and longevity, but it’s not so great at shedding those extra pounds.  In the end, it really isn’t all that helpful for losing weight.

Evaluating Health Information on the Internet

By VitaMist Ltd

Evaluating Health Information on the Internet

The growing popularity of the Internet has made finding health information easier and faster. Much of the information on the Internet is valuable; however, the Internet also allows rapid and widespread distribution of false and misleading information. You should carefully consider the source of information you find on the Internet and discuss that information with your health care provider. This fact sheet can help you decide whether the health information you find on the Internet or receive by e-mail is likely to be reliable.

Any Web site should make it easy for you to learn who is responsible for the site and its information.  If the person or organization in charge of the Web site did not write the material, the Web site should clearly identify the original source of the information.

Who runs the Web site?

Any Web site should make it easy for you to learn who is responsible for the site and its information. Websites that do not provide this information cannot be relied upon.  There is no way to know if they are associated with a business, if they have a political agenda or if they even know what they are talking about.

Who pays for the Web site?

It costs money to run a website. The source of a website's funding should be clearly stated or readily apparent. For example, the U.S. government funds websites with addresses ending in ".gov," educational institutes maintain ".edu" sites, noncommercial organizations' addresses often use ".org," while ".com" denotes a commercial organization (businesses). A Web site's source of funding can affect the content it presents, how it presents that content, and what the owner wants to accomplish on the site.

What is the Web site's purpose?

The person or organization that runs a website and the site's funding sources determine the site's purpose. Many Web sites have a link to information about the site, often called "About This Site." This page should clearly state the purpose of the site and help you evaluate the trustworthiness of the site's information. Although many legitimate websites sell health and medical products, keep in mind that the site owner's desire to promote a product or service can influence the accuracy of the health information they present. Looking for another source of health information that is independent and unbiased can help you validate the accuracy of the material presented on a Web site.  In other words, while we at VitaMist post health tips to aid you, please do not hesitate to double check our information with unbiased sources!  Think of it as getting a second opinion.

What is the original source of the website's information?

Many health and medical Web sites post information that the owner has collected from other Web sites or sources. If the person or organization in charge of the site did not write the material, they should clearly identify the original source.

How does the Web site document the evidence supporting its information?

Websites should identify the medical and scientific evidence that supports the material presented on the site. Medical facts and figures should have references (such as citations of articles published in medical journals). Also, opinions or advice should be clearly set apart from information that is "evidence based" (that is, based on research results). Testimonials from people who said they have tried a particular product or service are not evidence based and usually cannot be corroborated.

Who reviewed the information before the owner posted it on the Web site?

Health-related websites should give information about the medical credentials of the people who prepared or reviewed the material on the Web site. For example, the Office of Dietary Supplements Web site, where VitaMist gets much of its information,  contains fact sheets about vitamins minerals and other dietary supplements. These documents undergo extensive scientific review by recognized experts from the academic and research communities.

How current is the information on the Web site?

Experts should review and update the material on Web sites on a regular basis. Medical information needs to be current because medical research is constantly coming up with new information about medical conditions and how best to treat or prevent them. Web sites should clearly post the most recent update or review date. Even if the information has not changed in a long time, the site owner should indicate that someone has reviewed it recently to ensure that the information is still valid.

What information about users does the Web site collect, and why?

Web sites routinely track the path users take through their sites to determine what pages people are viewing. However, many health-related Web sites also ask users to "subscribe" to or "become a member" of the site. Sites sometimes do this to collect a user fee or select relevant information for the user. The subscription or membership might allow the Web site owner to collect personal information about the user.

Any Web site asking you for personal information should explain exactly what the site will and will not do with the information. Many commercial sites sell "aggregate" data—such as what percent of their users take dietary supplements—about their users to other companies. In some cases, sites collect and reuse information that is "personally identifiable," such as your ZIP code, gender, and birth date. Be certain to read and understand any privacy policy or similar language on the site and do not sign up for anything that you do not fully understand.

How does the Web site manage interactions with users?

Web sites should always offer a way for users to contact the Web site owner with problems, feedback, and questions. If the site hosts a chat room or some other form of online discussion, it should explain the terms of using the service. For example, the site should explain whether anyone moderates the discussions and, if so, who provides the moderation and what criteria the moderator uses to determine which comments to accept and which to reject. Always read online discussions before participating to make sure that you are comfortable with the discussion and with what participants say to one another.

How can you verify the accuracy of information you receive via e-mail?

Carefully evaluate any e-mail messages you receive that provide health-related information. Consider the message's origin and purpose. Some companies or organizations use e-mail to advertise products or attract people to their Web sites. A critical eye is warranted if an individual or company is promoting a particular medical product or service in an e-mail without providing supporting medical evidence.

With all of the misinformation ou there, it can be easy to get caught up in health trends and marketing ploys that serve no purpose beyond emptying your wallet, or a raising panic over “issues” that are not worth fretting over at all.  So verify that health blog’s sources, check where your friend got the information they posted on Facebook, and by all means, double check VitaMist’s health tips before you take action, and certainly before you repost the disinformation yourself.

VitaMist Named Product of the Year!

By Bill Deihl
on September 01, 2016
I’m happy to say that VitaMist was named the 2016 Product of the Year by the massage therapy community!  Bill, our President, was invited to Atlantic City this past month to accept the award at the World Massage Festival, and to speak about the importance of complete health.  What do I mean by complete health?  Leading a long, happy and healthy life is more than just exercising or maintaining a proper diet.  Complete health is about paying attention to your nutrition, your physical activity, your mental health, stress levels and rehabilitation efforts.  It’s about your mind, body and spirit, combined. As a nutraceutical company, we tend to stress nutrition.  We promote the concept of "diet support," the idea that changing your diet should not be painful, and it should be for life.  However, your physical, mental and spiritual health are all just as important as nutrition.

Eight Tips to Live Longer

By Steve Moren
on August 01, 2016

Tip 1:  Drink Water

Every cell in your body functions only as well as the fluid that surrounds it.  Therefore, the more hydrated your body is, the healthier you are likely to be.

 The body eliminates waste through liquids in four ways: respiration, urination, perspiration or defecation.  Each of these processes dehydrates you, making the replenishment of fluid essential.  As we age, the amount of water persistently in our bodies decreases, making the elimination of waste more difficult.  The older we get, the more water we need to drink.  The same goes for hot days when we perspire more and dry days when we lose more water through respiration.

 You should not wait until your mouth and throat are dry to drink water.  In fact, people often believe they are hungry when they are thirsty.

Childhood Nutrition

By Steve Moren
on July 01, 2016

​The human body is amazingly adaptive, and when the proper nutrition is not provided, it will compensate.  This can lead people to feel perfectly healthy, because their bodies have diverted nutrients to critical systems.  However, in truth their bodies are suffering.  Weaker cardiac muscles, plaque in the arteries, fatty livers and high blood sugar levels can all be overlooked until they become catastrophic.  At no time is this more true than in childhood and adolescence, when the human body is laying the foundation that will stay with them for their entire lives.

One of the largest health concerns is poor nutrition during childhood and adolescence- the period when it is the most crucial.  Poor nutrition during early development can lead the body to adapt in unhealthy ways, causing lifelong health problems.

Nearly 1 in 3 children in America is overweight or obese, is consuming too little calcium and far too much sugar.  Whether you have a toddler or a teen, nutrition is important to physical and mental development. Here's what children need in their diets, no matter what the age.

The 12 Steps to Health and Success

The 12 Steps to Health and Success

Making VitaMist Work for You

Just as there are 12 days of Christmas, there are 12 steps to jump-start your New Year.

  1. Write down what you want to do this New Year, e.g. lose weight; stop smoking; use VitaMist products every day; make $$$ with your VitaMist business; travel to new places.
  2. Now, make a contract with yourself. For example:Key to Success
    “I (your name) will make $5,000.00 (or any amount you want) from my VitaMist business by (date). I (your name) will do everything in my power to reach this goal."
    And then sign it.  The more detailed your contract, the better.
  3. Write down your goals!  I know this may sound redundant, but what I’m saying here is that you should write down your daily, weekly, and monthly goals to help you reach your ultimate goal – the contract with yourself.  For example:

    “Daily – Sell 3 products today!”
    “Weekly – Send in 15 new Golden Tube candidates!”
    “Monthly – Hold 3 product clinics or business briefings each month!
  4. Use the Products! Use the Products each and every day, no matter where you are! VitaMist Products are so revolutionary they will make people ask questions.
  5. Have a favorite product! And when people ask, tell them why it’s your favorite. “It makes me feel GREAT!” “It’s so easy and convenient to use!”
  6. Have fresh products on hand! It’s easier to close someone if you have at least part of their order on hand.
  7. Make a “Warm List”! Write down a list of all people that will be interested in the product and the opportunity. And never stop adding to it. By keeping a paper and pen with you at all times, you never know when a name will come to mind. 
  8. Use the GOLDEN TUBE system. It’s so easy to qualify for this program, and once you have qualified, just send your “hot list” to the Company and we will send each person on your list a Golden Tube, with samples of the products and all the paperwork they will need to make an informed decision. 
  9. Get everyone you know to join our Conference Calls – Product call on Thursday, the Training call on Monday, and Ladies of VitaMist on last Tuesday of the month, focus calls every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning. This way, your prospects will learn first-hand what all the buzz is about.  On some calls, they will even be offered free products.
  10. Keep Applications on hand! Some people will want to sign up right away so always be prepared!
  11. Study the Pocket Passport to Success. By just reading it once a week you will come up with new ideas on how to grow your business.
  12. Use the 3-foot rule! Anybody within 3 feet of you is a candidate! Everywhere you go there are people interested in your products and your business The key to finding these people is YOU! It is up to YOU to let them know.

With these 12 steps, you are on your way to a great New Year.  Follow these steps and 2016 will be full of Happiness, Heath, and Wealth.

We just want to say, from your VitaMist family, that we are honored to play a part in your future health and wealth.

Thank you.

You Are What You Absorb

By Steve Moren
on November 01, 2015

Contrary to popular belief, you are not what you eat.  You are what you absorb.  Not everything that hits your stomach gets used in your body, and not everything that that gets used in your body ever even hits your stomach.  In fact, you consume somewhere in the neighborhood of 550 liters of oxygen every single day.  If you tried drinking 550 liters of water in a day, you’d never leave the bathroom!  At least not until the paramedics wheeled you out.

Right now you might be thinking that unabsorbed sounds great, and if only your body would absorb less of it, you wouldn’t have those extra pounds around the waistline.  Unfortunately, caloric foods such as proteins, fats, and especially carbs are much easier to absorb than many calorie-free nutrients.  Deficiency in these can lead to grogginess, fatigue, depression, anxiety and poor health. This can happen even with the healthiest of diets.

ATP: Life's Power Supply

By Steve Moren

What is energy?

Energy is a property of matter.  Matter roughly amounts to “stuff” that takes up space, such as atoms, chemical compounds and a whole lot more.  Energy is something that all matter has in some form or another.  Just as every person has a height and weight, all matter has energy.  And just as an individual's height and weight can change, matter’s energy levels can change.  Energy is ultimately caused by the four fundamental forces of nature, electromagnetism, gravity, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force.

There Are Many Types of Energy

Kinetic energy is the energy of action.  Any object in motion has kinetic energy, whether it is a vehicle driving down the highway, or a single molecule vibrating and jostling around.

 Potential energy is “stored energy”.  All matter possesses potential energy in the form of nuclear, gravitational, electromagnetic and chemical energy, at the same time.

Independence from Monsanto

Independence from Monsanto

July 01, 2017

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.
