'A basic skill any health conscious parent needs to know today is how to make an electrolyte replacement when needed. I’ve written before about Switchel, which is a traditional thirst quencher and dehydration prevention drink. But, some people don’t care too much for the flavor of the drink which has water and small amounts of apple cider vinegar as the base.

I can relate as one of my children doesn’t care much at all for the sour taste of ACV even when extremely dilute in a beverage. As a result, I thought I would share how I make a homemade electrolyte replacement that appeals to that set of tastebuds too.'

'An Environmental Working Group review of government water analysis data reveals that 75% of drinking water in America is contaminated with cancer-causing hexavalent chromium (also known as chromium-6). In a widely publicized report, EWG warns that 200 million Americans are right now being exposed to this toxic chemical in their water.

No Evidence for Fluoridated Water to Result in Less Cavities

Screen Shot 2016-09-23 at 9.53.20 AM

 by Dr. Mercola

Two-thirds of Americans drink tap water that has added fluoride. Unlike other chemicals added to water, which are intended to treat the water itself, fluoride is intended to treat the people who drink the water, whether they want the treatment or not.

As the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) puts it, “Fluoridating water supplies can thus fairly be described as a form of mass medication, which is why most European countries have rejected the practice.” [1]
In the U.S., many people assume the fluoride in drinking water is beneficial for their teeth, an assumption that has been widely spread by public health agencies.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has partnered with the American Dental Association (ADA) in saying fluoridation is “nature’s way to prevent tooth decay” [2] — a statement that is both misleading and inaccurate.

What is Apoptosis?

According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) a multicellular organism’s (Human) cells are members of a highly structured community. The quantity of cells in the community is regulated efficiently by governing the rate of cell mitosis as well as controlling the rate of cell death.

When a cell is no longer needed, an intracellular death program is initiated that causes a cell to essentially commit suicide. This process is known as programmed cell death, medically and scientifically known as apoptosis which is drawn from a Greek word meaning “falling off.”

Health Benefits of Hops: Menopause & More

Photo Credit:http://www.leeners.com/

'Humulus lupulus (hops) are best known for their role in beer, however, the flowers of the plant are also being investigated for their health benefits — in particular, those which affect women.

In 1999, a potent phytoestrogen, 8-prenylnaringenin, whose activity was stronger than that of other phytoestrogens, was found in Humulus lupulus.1

Phytoestrogens found in plants can have estrogenic or antiestrogenic effects due to their ability to occupy estrogen receptor sites, thereby blocking estrogen made in the body. This may enable some plant compounds to provide some of the benefits of estrogen while blocking some of their adverse effects.'

The Importance of CoQ10 for Heart Health and Much More


Image result for coq10 health


In an earlier Health Impact News article, it was pointed out how statin drugs cut back on the body’s ability to produce an important co-enzyme called CoQ10. One of CoQ10’s important health features, among others, is that it’s vital for good heart health.
Ironically, statin drugs prescribed for protecting cardiovascular health hamper this heart health co-enzyme production, and worse, it affects other areas of health. This could explain the other adverse side effects of statin drugs, such as fatigue, lowered immunity, and aching joints, muscles, and tendons. (Source)
Co-enzyme Q 10 (CoQ10) was identified from its function, not its structure. It actually involves a complex cycle that affects electron transfer in tissue cells, most importantly brain, heart, and liver organ tissues, and promotes intracellular energy production throughout the body.
