Top Back-to-School Health Supplements

Dear VitaMist Family,

The summer days are almost over, and it’s time to switch gears and get back into the school routine.  Back to school is the perfect time to emphasize healthy habits, such as healthy snacks, healthy meals, and make sure they have their VitaMist. When you do your traditional school shopping for supplies and clothes, make sure to stock up on VitaMist to keep your kids and grandkids healthy.

Here is my list of top health supplements for back to school:

Children’s Multiple

A comprehensive multivitamin and mineral is the base of almost every health program. This tasty formula supplies vitamins and minerals in a child-friendly way.

C+Zinc

With school comes a barrage of illnesses!  On top of (constantly) reminding your kids to wash their hands, it’s always good to give them an immune system boost!

D-Stress B-Complex

Going back to school is a very stressful time of year. Kids can worry about their new classroom, classmates, and teachers. D-Stress helps them settle that anxiety by replacing their depleted B vitamins.

We certainly have enjoyed the relaxing days of summer, but it’s time to get back into the routine and take our supplements faithfully!

How good is your nutritional IQ?

26 fast True or False questions

(6 out of 10 people will get more than 10 wrong) 

 

True or False: Then Why?
1. Carbohydrates have more nutritional value than starches?
False!
Starches are one type of carbohydrate; sugar are also carbohydrates. Both types are necessary for a balanced diet.

2. Eating less food makes the stomach shrink?
False!
Stomachs do not shrink, appetites do.

3. If you start exercising regularly, you’ll eat more because you will feel hungrier throughout the day?
False!
Studies show that inactive people who start a regular exercise program cut their food intake and are less hungry.

4. You’ll lose weight more quickly if you reduce your intake of fats?
TRUE!
The best way to lose weight is to reduce one’s intake of fats.

5. The speed with which you eat your food is irrelevant to your diet?
False !
It takes the average person 20 minutes to receive the signal from the stomach to the brain that he or she is full. If you eat rapidly, you’re apt to overeat before receiving the signal from the brain that your stomach of full.

6. It’s impossible to reconstruct a recipe so that it’s low in calories?
False !
It is often easy to reduce the calories in a dish if you consider all the ingredients. Substitute items such as low-calorie vegetable spray for shortening, skimmed milk for cream and artificial sweetener for sugar.

7. Milk is so good nutritional that you can’t drink too much of it?
• False !
Milk is good nutritionally, but it is high in calories. Five glass of homogenized milk equals 825. No food, no matter how good it is nutritionally, can be eaten in unlimited quantities.

8. Is it nutritionally better to eat fresh rather than frozen or canned fruit?
• False ! – SURPRISED !?!?!?
Frozen fruit is equal in nutritional value to fresh fruit. Due to modern canning processes, the nutritional value of water packed fruit is only slightly less that fresh, although it has a few more calories than fresh fruit.

9. Heating and toasting food decreases its calories?
• False !
Heating and cooking food does nothing to the calorie content.

10. As people get older they inevitably put on weight?
• False !
As you get older, your body’s basic energy requirements lessen and if you continue to eat as much as you did when you were younger, you will gain weight. However, weight gain is not inevitable if you reduce your food intake and exercise regularly.

11. White eggs have less nutritional value than brown eggs?
• False !
Whether an egg comes in a white shell or a brown shell, it is still an egg and has the same nutritional value.

12. The body uses more energy to burn calories from carbohydrates than to burn calories from fat, so carbohydrates are less fattening?
• TRUE
All calories are not equal and carbohydrates and protein calories are not as fattening as fat calories because it takes more energy to process them.

13. Spray vitamins are the best Delivery system to get your nutrition?
• TRUE
According to the physician’s Desk Reference and drugs.com it’s ranked as the best way to take your Vitamins. https://www.drugs.com/drp/vitamist-intra-oral-spray.html

14. Too much meat tends to add extra pounds?
• TRUE
Meat is high in protein, but also high in fat and calories. Too many calories, no matter where they come from, add pounds !!!!

15. If you consistently feel weak or tired while dieting, it is just a normal results of cutting calories?
• False !
Just reducing calories does not cause fatigue. If you are feeling weak and fatigued, you may have cut your calories intake too severely (below 800 calories a day is considered unsafe without medical supervision) or your diet isn’t a balanced diet and you’re not getting all the nutrients you need. Stay away from fad diets when trying to reduce.

16. Drinking less water will relieve that bloated feeling and rid the body of water?
• False !
One of the ways to assist in eliminating excess fat and waste products from the system is by maintaining a liberal intake of water. Eight glasses a day is not too much. Water can also help reduce hunger by making you feel more full.

17. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice burn fat and so fat can be consumed in unlimited quantities?
• False !
All foods contain calories. There are no magic fat-burning foods or substances. Grapefruit juice contains approximately the same amount of calories as orange juice and should be consumed in moderation.

18. A few extra pounds is bad for your health?
• False !
Scientific studies have shown that otherwise healthy individuals, such as those without hypertension or disease, can carry as many as 10 to 15 extra pounds without adverse health effects.

19. Eating balanced meals is not important if a vitamin is taken daily?
• False !
Vitamins are supplements, but that’s all. It’s a misconception that you can eat an unbalanced diet and take a vitamin pill and not worry about it. A vitamin pill that has everything you need hasn’t been invented yet.

20. Beer has  little nutritional value?
• True !
It may taste good to you, but a 12 ounce can of beer is 151 calories and not much else. It has very few nutrients.

21. The most important part of any diet is protein, and any high or all protein diet is desirable?
• False !
The average person’s diet contains twice as much protein as is needed. Since many protein foods are also high in calories – red meat, for instance, because of its high fat content – a diet very high in protein can provide more calories than your body can burn. And, what doesn’t get burned turns to fat on your body.

22. A diet pill is very helpful diet aid?
• False !
Although diet pills may help some persons get started on weight loss, there’s no substitute for learning how to eat correctly. You must learn how to eat correctly for the rest of your life, not depend on diet pills.

23. Protein is protein – it does not matter what kind of food it comes from?
• False !
Proteins are made up of amino acids. There are 20 amino acids, nine are essential to health in adults. Some foods have all 9 of them and some do not. That’s why it is better to balance our diet with several protein sources rather than just eating one constantly. This is especially important on a vegetarian diet.

24. Most overweight people have glandular problems?
• False !
A very small percentage of overweight people have a glandular problem. The rest are simply eating more calories than they are burning.

25. Losing two pounds per week for more than two weeks is desirable?
• TRUE !!!!!!!
Two pounds per week is a very healthy weight loss rate. There is no problem with dehydration, muscle cramping and drastic lowering of blood pressure with light-headedness and feeling weak.

26. You should never skip a meal when you’re dieting even if you’re not particularly hungry?
• False !
It’s a myth. There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that one should eat when one is NOT hungry. That if you skip a meal when you are not hungry it will cause you to overeat your next meal. Of course, if you’re dieting, and you are hungry, you shouldn’t skip any meals, because the longer you wait, the more hungry you are going to get.

A Phoenix In Phoenix

One man’s dream that turned into a family’s dedication is now, today, becoming a cause for so many around the world.

VitaMist was invented by the late Joseph A. Deihl, a man with a dream. He stuck with his dream, and watched it become a reality with the opening of Mayor Pharmaceutical Laboratories, the only spray vitamin manufacturer in the world.

Over the years Joe Deihl has been called many things, from a snake oil salesman, to a motivator, inventor, and genius. There is no denying his true genius. He took the purest vitamins, minerals, and herbs, and put them into liquid form. This liquid was then sprayed directly into the mouth, thus allowing for faster absorption by distributing the nutrients across multiple absorption sites. This contrasts with products that rely upon a slow digestive and absorption process.

With this invention, Joseph Deihl had developed the highest form of non-medical delivery device in the world. It represents the hi-tech way to take your vitamins. This invention was a spray vitamin (named VitaMist) for which he was awarded both US and International Patents. The discovery was more than 20 years before its time, because only today has medical industry finally caught up, with the development of spray insulin, spray nitroglycerin, spray flu vaccine, and spray antibiotics.

As a result of his efforts in developing VitaMist and establishing multiple worldwide Patents, Joseph Deihl was awarded The Congressional Medal Of Freedom, the highest award a civilian can receive from the United States Congress.

Why hasn’t this invention taken over the world of nutrition until now? It is, after all, a better way to take your vitamins, a better mousetrap, if you will. The answer is timing; we live in a pill oriented society. Or rather, it would probably be better to say “it WAS a pill oriented society”. We are going through a paradigm shift as we speak.

The history of VitaMist is like a roller coaster, frequently looking like the ride was coming to an end, and never more so than when Joseph Deihl passed away at the beginning of 2006. Just as the story of the Phoenix rising from the ashes, so is the story of Mayor Pharmaceutical Laboratories and VitaMist, starting to rise as a new and stronger bird under the leadership of VitaMist President, William M. Deihl, the son of Joseph Deihl. “We have made a commitment to make VitaMist a Billion Dollar a year business in the next 5 years.”-William Deihl.

VitaMist is conducting a leadership search around the country and the world. Pill companies and other critics of VitaMist are now being shown that this is a company based on true science and innovation, not to mention true grit.

 

Some of the major accomplishments of Mayor Pharmaceutical Labs and VitaMist include…

  • Publication in the PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference) as the best way to absorb vitamins
  • Added to the red book for insurance reimbursement and coverage
  • PBS featured story on the American Medical Review
  • News broadcasts on ABC, CBS, WGN, CNN, Disney, Unavision, FOX and most recently on NBC.
  • Featured on over 2500 radio stations
  • Articles on VitaMist in the LA Times, Prevention, the Enquirer, and Forbes
  • The only supplement featured on Drugs.com
  • Named 2016 Product of the Year by the World Massage Festival

Gummy Candy Could Be Healthier Than Gummy Vitamins

Which is Troubling, As Candy Isn’t Healthy At All

This article originally appeared on the New York Magazine website, Science of Us. (Who’s newsletter I [Steve] highly recommend subscribing to.)

Between Gummy Vitamins and Candy, It Might Be Better to Choose Candy

by Cari Romm

Nutrition can be an endlessly confusing science, full of contradictory informationDoes expensive really mean healthier? Is a vegan diet actually good for you? What does moderation even mean, anyway? — but every so often, you run into a decision that seems like a no-brainer. Like, for example, whether it’s better to satisfy your sweets craving with a handful of gummy vitamins or a handful of actual gummy candy. Both are made pretty much entirely of substances you can’t pronounce, but one is actually good for you. Obviously, you go with the vitamins.

Except: Nope. As writer Katherine Ellen Foley recently explained in Quartz, chewy Flintsones Vitamins and their ilk are more palatable than vitamin pills because they’re loaded with sugar — in some cases, more than actual candy. But that’s still not the biggest problem with guzzling them like a snack:

A little extra sugar probably won’t hurt you. But there are certain micronutrients that can be harmful in high enough quantities. Our bodies can easily get rid of excess vitamins that dissolve in water, like vitamin C, all the B vitamins, and folate, but they hold onto the ones that are fat soluble. Buildup of vitamin A, K, E, or D—all of which are necessary in low levels—can cause problems with your heart and kidneys, and can even be fatal in some cases… If you want a midday sugary pick-me-up, you’re probably better off just treating yourself to some actual gummy bears or chocolate.

In other words, this is another example of a health halo backfiring: Gummy vitamins must be healthy — vitamins! It’s right there in the name! — so you go to town on them, and end up doing something less healthy than if you’d avoided them altogether and just opted for some regular food. (And regular food, incidentally, can also give you all the vitamins you need, sans supplements.) And if this comes as a bummer to gummy-vitamin fans, think of it this way: From a health standpoint, it’s not often that candy is the better of two options. Embrace it.

 

Steve here again.  Did You know that a month’s supply of VitaMist contains less sugar than a packet you’d pour into your morning coffee?  Did You also know that VitaMist limits the amount of fat soluble vitamins in its products based on Recommended Daily Intake and Tolerable Upper Intake levels?  Just saying…

Discover the 4 Rules of Selling Any Product (as a Therapist)

In light of VitaMist’s recent award from the World Massage Festival, it’s a prime opportunity for VitaMist distributors to pitch to, and even recruit massage therapists into the VitaMist family.  But this does raise the question, “Is it ethical for massage therapists to sell products as part of their practice?”  Fortunately, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”  You just need to follow a few simple rules.

To ensure ethical sales, a massage therapist or physical therapist should meet two criteria.

Rule Number 1: Transparency

Tell your patients and clients that you will be making a profit off the sale.  Without transparency, motives can be called into question, and your practice can suffer.  Being honest with your clientele is important.  By withholding information, you break the trust between you and those who you serve.  However, by being open and sincere, you would be surprised how many of your clients will make that purchase specifically because it also benefits you.  A good therapist – patient relationship is one where both parties benefit.

Rule Number 2:  Provide Options

Provide your patients with alternate locations where they can purchase same products.  This rule is similar to transparency.  You may make a few more sales by pitching a product as though you are their sole source.  Scarcity sells, after all.  However, in the process of selling products, you may lose clients.  A therapist is not a salesperson first, and their chief obligation should be to their practice.  It all comes back to the honesty we talked about in rule 1.  Don’t sacrifice relationships for the sake of sales.

Rule Number 3: Understand the Product

If you are going to sell products to supplement your practice, you will need to teach your clients what they do, and why they would be of benefit.  And before you can teach someone else, you must first understand the subject matter.  VitaMist has many informative materials available online, a network of nutritional consultants who can get you started, and a customer service team that would be thrilled to talk you through the specifics of our products, and what they do.  Studying the products you plan to sell is not just important to grow your business, it is also the right thing to do.  Advising a patient to take a product that not even you fully understand is no better than selling snake oil on a street corner, and could even be dangerous if you advise them to take the wrong products.

Rule Number 4: Believe in the Product!

This rule may be the most important one.  Selling a product that you do not believe in is disingenuous, and highly unethical.  If you sell products out of your practice, supplementing your income should be a positive side effect on top of promoting your patient’s health.  Profit is the icing on the cake, while the nutritional benefits are the cake itself.  Furthermore, selling products that you believe in will make it easier to sell them!  When you are truly exciting about what you are selling, that enthusiasm is noticeable, and it will spread to your patients and colleagues alike!

Selling outside products is an excellent way to keep your private practice afloat, and ease the burden of your bills.  But that doesn’t have to be all that there is to it.  It can be a way to promote better health in your patients, educate them on how nutrition affects their body and connect with them on a personal level.  All you need to do is to follow a few simple rules.

Dietary Supplements: What You Need to Know

The majority of adults in the United States take one or more dietary supplements either every day or occasionally. Today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products. Dietary supplements come in a variety of forms: traditional tablets, capsules, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars. Popular supplements include vitamins D and E; minerals like calcium and iron; herbs such as echinacea and garlic; and specialty products like glucosamine, probiotics, and fish oils.

The Supplement Label

All products labeled as a dietary supplement carry a Supplement Facts panel that lists the contents, amount of active ingredients per serving, and other added ingredients. The manufacturer suggests the serving size, but you or your health care provider might decide that a different amount is more appropriate for you.

Diet

If you don’t eat a nutritious variety of foods, some supplements might help you get adequate amounts of essential nutrients. However, supplements can’t take the place of the variety of foods that are important to a healthy diet. Good sources of information on eating well include the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate.

Quality

Dietary supplements are complex products. The FDA has established quality standards for dietary supplements to help ensure their identity, purity, strength, and composition. These standards are designed to prevent the inclusion of the wrong ingredient, the addition of too much or too little of an ingredient, the possibility of contamination, and the improper packaging and labeling of a product. The FDA periodically inspects facilities that manufacture dietary supplements.

Keep in Mind

  • Don’t decide to take dietary supplements to treat a health condition that you have diagnosed yourself, without consulting a health care provider.
  • Don’t take supplements in place of, or in combination with, prescribed medications without your health care provider’s approval.
  • Check with your health care provider about the supplements you take if you are scheduled to have any type of surgical procedure.
  • The term “natural” doesn’t mean safe. A supplement’s safety depends on many things, such as its chemical makeup, how it works in the body, how it is prepared, and the dose used. Certain herbs (for example, comfrey and kava) can harm the liver.

Before taking a dietary supplement, ask yourself these questions:

  • What are the potential health benefits of this dietary supplement product?
  • What are its potential benefits for me?
  • Does this product have any safety risks?
  • What is the proper dose to take?
  • How, when, and for how long should I take it?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions, talk to your health care providers.

Let your health care providers (including doctors, pharmacists, and dietitians) know which dietary supplements you’re taking so that you can discuss what’s best for your overall health. Your health care provider can help you determine which supplements, if any, might be valuable for you.

Keep a record of the supplements you take in one place, just as you should be doing for all of your medicines. Note the specific product name, the dose you take, how often you take it, and the reason why you use each one. You can also bring the products you use with you when you see your health care provider.

Federal Regulation of Dietary Supplements

Dietary supplements are products intended to supplement the diet. They are not drugs and, therefore, are not intended to treat, diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or cure diseases. The FDA is the federal agency that oversees both dietary supplements and medicines.

In general, the FDA regulations for dietary supplements are different from those for prescription or over-the-counter drugs. Unlike drugs, which must be approved by the FDA before they can be marketed, dietary supplements do not require premarket review or approval by the FDA. While the supplement company is responsible for having evidence that their products are safe and the label claims are truthful and not misleading, they do not have to provide that evidence to the FDA before the product is marketed.

Dietary supplement labels may carry certain types of health-related claims. Manufacturers are permitted to say, for example, that a dietary supplement addresses a nutrient deficiency, supports health, or is linked to a particular body function (like immunity or heart health). Such a claim must be followed by the words, “This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”

Manufacturers must follow certain good manufacturing practices to ensure the identity, purity, strength, and composition of their products. If the FDA finds a product to be unsafe or otherwise unfit for human consumption, it may take enforcement action to remove the product from the marketplace or work with the manufacturer to voluntarily recall the product.

Also, once a dietary supplement is on the market, the FDA monitors information on the product’s label and package insert to make sure that information about the supplement’s content is accurate and that any claims made for the product are truthful and not misleading. The Federal Trade Commission, which polices product advertising, also requires all information about a dietary supplement product to be truthful and not misleading.

 

The federal government can take legal action against companies and Web sites that sell dietary supplements when the companies make false or deceptive statements about their products, if they promote them as treatments or cures for diseases, or if their products are unsafe.

The 6 Categories of Superfoods

Teriyaki salmon dinner with green onions and sesame seeds

Animal Products

Animal products are not an option for vegetarians and vegans, but they are valuable sources of nutrients for those on more omnivorous diets. While many animal products can do more harm than good, there are some superfoods that cannot be overlooked.  Eggs, for instance, deliver 6 grams of protein, despite being only 72 calories.  Since there are 4 calories per gram of protein, this means one third of an egg’s caloric contribution comes from protein.  If you only eat the egg whites, that protein jumps up to 85% of the egg’s calories!

Eggs In a Basket

3 Oz. of turkey breast pack 20 grams of protein into just 90 calories, for 89% of its caloric contribution, and 3 Oz. of salmon will provide all of the omega-3 fatty acids you need for the day. If you dress your fish or poultry with some greek yogurt, you’ll take your entrée’s nutritional value to a whole other level.  Perhaps some of the most nutrient rich food sources available are liver and kidneys.  As a society, we’ve moved away from the days when livers and kidneys were common staples of the dinner table, and that’s a shame.  A diet consisting of only liver or kidneys with a green such as spinach on the side would deliver all of the micronutrients and macronutrients your body needs to survive.

Dairy is also important, as it provides one of the most crucial micronutrients, calcium.  While some people love the taste of milk, there are many who dislike it, or can’t process it.  If you’re just not a fan, then try to include more cheeses or greek yogurt into your diet.  Cheeses with stronger flavors are often better for you.  American cheese is rather bland because it’s made with low fat milk, sugars and chemicals, whereas sharp cheddar, gouda, goat cheeses, brie and others rely more on whole milk, healthy bacteria and minerals to provide flavor.

For those who can’t or don’t want to consume animal products, supplementing with B-complex vitamins, especially B-12, and iron may be necessary.  For those who can’t process milk, this next gategory is also a great source of calcium.

Greens

Enough can’t be said about all of the benefits of ensuring a diet rich in green vegetables… although we did say quite a bit in our last Brief.  Some of the superfoods we didn’t cover last week include spitulina, blu-green algae and wheat or barley grass.  True nutrient power houses, each and every one of them.

Seaweed clinging to rocks along the shore

Seaweed

The greens of the sea, seaweed gets it own category for very good reasons.  The environment below the ocean’s surface is obviously very different than the environment above, but did you know that sea water is actually very close in composition to our own blood plasma?  This environment leads to vegetation that is rich in minerals, omega-3’s, alkalizing agents that lower our bodies’ acidity and much, much more.

Seaweeds such as kelp, nori, wakame and others tend to be ‘acquired tastes’.  But they are tastes that are well worth acquiring, since they are all extremely beneficial as detoxifiers, anti-oxidants, purifiers and nutrient sources.  When choosing seaweed products from a store, be sure to pay attention to where the products were sourced from.  Seaweeeds take on the properties of the waters they grew in, so products sourced from polluted waters can do more harm than good.  Certified organic products can be more expensive than their countrparts, but this is an instance when it’s well worth it to pay that extra cost.

Botanicals

aloe vera plant

Many herbs and other botanicals are not considered ‘greens’ or vegetables because they don’t carry enough macro-nutrients (carbs, fats, proteins, sodium and potassium), but that doesn’t mean they can’t be superfoods.  Basil, cilantro and parsley are packed with flavor, and micronutrients as well.  Most edible botanicals carry valuable cancer fighting phytonutrients, and many have additional medicinal properties.  Don’t exclude botanicals when you think of superfoods.  Many, such as aloe vera, ginseng, echinacea and nettle are valuable enough to be worth adding to your morning smoothy, or even supplementing with products like ImmuneX or Breathe EZ.

Nuts & Fruits

These are our fan favorite superfoods.  Many people have allergies that prevent them from taking advantage of the proteins and healthy fats provided by nuts.  Fortunately, though, most fruits are extremely low in allergens.  While oranges with their high Vitamin C content, and coconuts with their fantastic electrolyte balance are both well known, there are some other fruits you should take note of.

Coconut & Nuts

Acai, noni, maca, goji berries and raw cacao (aka chocolate!) are all gaining popularity in health food stores and nutrition blogs throughout the world.  This is neither a fluke nor a fad.  These superfoods pack a huge punch into small, delicious packages.  The minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants and phytochemicals in these foods make them some of the most healthy snack foods you can get your hands on.

Bee Products

Honey dripping from honey dipperThe last category might come as a surprise, but we hope it’s a pleasant one.  The close relationship between bees and the flowers they pollinate are why their products are loaded with so many nutrients.  They are basically nature’s supplement manufacturers.  The long shelf life of honey can be attributed to its natural preservatives, which fight off bacteria and other microorganisms.  Bees produce much more than just honey, though.  Bee propolis and bee pollen are common nutritional supplements, but royal jelly is where the bee’s supplement manufacturing really shines.  Royal jelly is brimming all the nutrients required for life.  This includes a hefty dose of B-complex vitamins, with royal jelly being the highest concentrated source of Vitamin B5, a nutrient that prevents fatigue and the effects of stress.  This is why we used it as the finishing touch for our ATP: Super-Cell Food!

Bringing It All Together

You don’t often hear the words “superfood” and “delicious” used in the same sentence.  But when you look at the six major categories of superfoods, a healthier and tastier diet starts to come into view.  The best diets are those that incorporate a lot of variety.  Eating your kale salad twice a day can be more than a little tedious, and it’s tough to stick with a diet like that.  Look into all six categories of superfoods, and you’ll find a diet that’s easy to stick to.  Pick and choose your superfood.  Mix it up from meal meal, day to day.  Satisfy your hunger with your favorite snacks from these categories.  Supplement your diet with the nutrients you’re missing.  Do these things, and you’ll have the energy you want, without being restricted to the depressing and often unhealthy fad diets that have flooded the market.

We Are Battery Operated

Did you know that humans are battery operated?

It’s true.  The cells in our bodies will all perform their own processes with chemical energy alone.  However, to coordinate these processes, correctly time your heart’s rhythm, trigger your muscles so that they contract and relax in unison and even to have the thoughts and memories that make you who you are…  for all of that, we need battery power.  Electrical energy runs the computer that is our brains.  This electrical energy controls everything we do by providing us with a timing mechanism for critical processes.  It is also used as a part of the communication network that sends signals from the brain and spine out to organs and extremities far faster than any chemical method could.

As a quick physics refresher, remember that everything is made of atoms.  Atoms themselves can be further divided into the protons and neutrons that inhabit the core of the atom, and the electrons that move throughout the space around that core.  Protons and electrons are electromagnetically charged particles, whereas neutrons have a neutral charge.  To make it easier to conceptualize, we call electromagnetic charges either positive (protons) or negative (electrons).  Now, this has nothing to do with the particle’s outlook on life, and you’re not going to find electrons hanging out at dimly lit coffee bars reading Edgar Allen Poe.  Positive and negative are just the words we use to describe these opposite charges.

In their basic state, atoms have an equal balance of protons and electrons, giving them a neutral charge.  This neutral state is not constant, though.  An atom’s charge fluctuates by the gain or loss of electrons.  When not in balance, theMeditating, energetic man atom is said to be an ion, and these are either a positively charged cations (too few electrons) or negatively charged anions (too many electrons). The switch between positive and negative charge and back again is caused by the flow of electrons from atom to atom.  This is electricity.

“Opposites attract” is a common saying, and nowhere is it truer than within the structure of an atom.  Electrons are attracted to the positive charge of the protons within the atom’s core.  So how do these electrons jump from one atom to another?  Electrons only exist within certain frequencies, which are their ‘energy levels’.  Electrons can increase or decrease their frequency through electromagnetism, a process mediated by photons.  You’ve probably heard of photons as being the smallest units of light, radio waves, x-rays and the whole range of the electromagnetic spectrum.  Photons are also involved in the electron’s ability to gain and lose energy.  Low-frequency electrons can gain energy by being bombarded with photons, and high-frequency electrons can lose energy by emitting photons.  Low-frequency electrons cling closely to atoms and molecules.  These electrons are unable to escape the pull of the positively charged atomic core, and cannot flow freely through our nervous systems.  When provided with more energy, they become excited and leap to higher energy levels within a molecule, or freely flow across molecules as electricity.  These high energy electrons move about more readily and interact with the world around them, providing us with the battery power we need.

Since our bodies rely on this electricity, problems with our internal power grids can be devastating.  Electrical shocks and electrolyte imbalances are some of the biggest health hazards, but even minor problems can lead to diminished strength, flexibility, coordination, mental alertness and even affect our moods.
