Depression & DHA

May help with depression, memory, concentration and
vision.

What is DHA?

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an essential fatty acid (EFA). EFAs are called “essential” because we must obtain them from diet. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid commonly found in fish oil. EFAs are necessary for good health, and DHA is a wellknown key to a healthy nervous system.

It is the building block of the brain – 60 percent of the brain is fat, and DHA is the most abundant fat in the brain and the retina. It plays a role in the structural development of retinal, neural, and synaptic membranes. DHA is essential in communication between the brain and nervous system. It plays a role in the cell membrane. Without DHA and other fatty acids, communication within this system can break down or become less effective.

The body’s ability to synthesize DHA, which is limited in all people, may decline with age. We get some DHA in our diets, but vegetarians might get less. Rich sources of DHA are red meats, animal organs and eggs. Research indicates that low levels of DHA may be involved in a number of health problems relating to the nervous system.

Depression

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition presents research indicating that omega-3 fatty acids, specifically DHA, may reduce the risk of depression. The authors associate the increase in depression in the past century with the decline in consumption of DHA. They also note that there are lower rates of major depression in societies that consume large amounts of fish, a key dietary source of DHA.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)

Protect Your Heart

Protective Steps for Your Heart

Eat a balanced diet low in cholesterol, sodium, saturated fats, and trans fats and rich in whole grains, vegetables, and healthy fats.

This is the first step in managing your weight, keeping your blood pressure down, controlling your blood sugar levels, and lowering your cholesterol.

Although cholesterol intake from the diet does count, most of the cholesterol in your blood is actually produced by your own liver when you are stressed, so managing your stress levels is very important. Furthermore, regular exercise is extremely beneficial for heart health.

The next step is smart supplementation with AIM CellSparc 360, a combination of plant-derived coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), fish oil, and tocotrienols (vitamin E) for proven cardiovascular support. Their synergistic action results in the ultimate heart health supplement to ensure adequate energy production at the cellular level.

To produce its cellular energy source, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body must have coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), which is found in cell membranes and in the mitochondria—energy factories of the cells. However, our bodies produce less CoQ10 as we age, so supplementation is crucial.

Therefore, CellSparc 360 helps to support and maintain cardiovascular health by providing CoQ10.

According to an article in the American Journal of Cardiology, coenzyme Q10 is “an essential cofactor for mitochondrial energy production.” To spark your cells, increase your energy levels, and maintain overall health, supplement with CoQ10. Small amounts of CoQ10 are found in some foods (e.g., spinach, broccoli, some vegetable oils, animal organs, and some types of fish), but it can be reduced or destroyed by cooking or refining.

The liver can manufacture CoQ10 but is unable to produce enough if the body is deficient in any essential enzymes or cofactors— such as vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12, C, or folate. Furthermore, stress and pollution deplete CoQ10 from our tissues, and aging makes CoQ10 production even more difficult.

Key Benefits and Features:

  • Supports cardiovascular health
  • Helps maintain healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels
  • Increases energy production at the cellular level
  • Helps maintain gum health
  • Quick absorption into the bloodstream
  • Provides a potent antioxidant
  • Contains 60 mg of plant-derived coenzyme Q10, 100 mg of Palm oil providing 30 mg of tocotrienol/ tocopherol complex, and 238.8 mg of fish oil per capsule
  • No artificial flavors or fillers
  • No harsh solvents used in coenzyme Q10 extraction process
  • More than 15 years of safe and beneficial use by AIM Members
  • 30 softgel capsules
  •   GLUTEN – FREE CERTIFIED                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Reference:  AIM CellSparc 360® Data Sheet

Enthusiasm Draws a Crowd

Be Passionate about What you do and others will be drawn to you!

Be Passionate about What you do and others will be drawn to you!

Have you ever noticed how some people can really draw a crowd? It is usually because they are enthusiastic about life and that passion overflows into whatever they are doing. People enjoy and flock to enthusiastic people. This passion influences every aspect of their life. Real enthusiasm is hard to miss and cannot be faked. It permeates the very being and cannot be restrained. Over time, this type of personality can greatly influence others and can make and keep that person more successful in business than others.

I think that being an enthusiastic leader can help keep my team members motivated and can help fuel their passion. I am hoping that by sharing my passion for life and truly caring about each person…that I can draw a crowd.

12 Tips to Grow Your Business

  1. YOUR PASSION will keep you in first place!

     Have passion –Certainly for you business, but also for life.  Your passion will help you overcome difficult moments and persuade people to work for you and want to do business with you.  I notice that people always flock to a person with passion. When it diminishes, take some quiet time to reflect on why you started the business and why you like being your own boss.  Find your “why”…your compelling vision that drives your success, a central, significant reason for devoting yourself, your time, talents and energy into your business.

  2. Your major company asset is YOU-Take care of yourself.  Your health is more valuable than the most expensive machine or computer software.  Exercise, eat right and get enough rest.  Maintaining your health and balancing your business and family time will give you energy that will enhance your mental outlook.
  3. Seize every moment-Look at every day as a gift filled with opportunities to rise above fear, self-doubt, and mediocrity.   Set specific goals to succeed and make every effort to exceed your own expectations.
  4. Set an example of trustworthiness and integrity-maintain a strong work ethic.  Treat others with honesty and respect and the business will come.  It’s not about the bottom line, but about building relationships.
  5. Be flexible, except with core values-At one point or another, your best laid plans will falter and will need to be changed.  Sometimes a trip in a different direction is just the way to increase growth.  However, NO matter the pressure for immediate profit, do NOT compromise your core values or integrity.
  6.  Don’t let fear of failure hold you back-Look at failure as an opportunity to learn.  If you encounter a roadblock, think of ways around it and take action.  There is more than one road to success.  There will be plenty of ups and downs as you build your business.  Learn from them and move on.  You cannot change the past, but you can use it to your advantage and not make the same mistake twice.
  7. Use your time wisely- It is crucial to think ahead and plan your course of action.  Schedule wisely.  Don’t put off doing something just because you think it takes too much time, is hard to start or is boring…do it anyway.  Procrastination leads to missed opportunities.
  8. Discover your innate power-Find the power within you…your power source and use it to fuel your passion, and release that greatness within you.  Use that power to deal with challenges.
  9. Believe-You need to believe in yourself, your company and your products.  Your confidence is contagious.  See yourself as a go-getter with the power to turn a no into a yes.  Be determined to blaze new trails to success.
  10. Have the right attitude-How many times have you seen the underdog team or player win over the more talented opponent?  Attitude is everything.  Stay positive and find ways to keep that first day freshness, enthusiasm and determination.  Reflect often on why you are doing what you do.
  11. Constantly improve yourself-Stay abreast of what is going on in your field and constantly improve your knowledge and skills. Enroll in classes or access self help tools that will help you improve yourself.
  12. Periodically step outside your comfort zone.  Challenge yourself to try something new.  Take a class, make a cold call, go door to door or join a networking group or do a radio interview.  Complacency can be our worst enemy.  There is always room to grow, we just have to keep making the effort.

 

Of all these tips, passion is the most important.  We can learn the other 11 tips, but passion comes from within.  You cannot fake it for long.

Love what you do and do what you love

Build It Big book review tips

Great tips to build your business and get the most out of life

 

Build It Big is a book by Direct Selling Women’s Alliance.  It has lots of tips to build a successful home based direct selling business.  I started reading it recently and will be blogging for a bit about it.

Here are 7 tips to “Build It Big”  with your new business.

1.  Develop a love of product and company. Use the product and share the results you have had.  A personal connection to a product or service is so much more real than just talking about what the product does generically.  Learn about the company and know what they stand for.

2. Cultivate a good working rapport with your up-line.  Work with them and learn from their mistakes and take their advice on what is working

3. See the beginnings of your team develop.  As you share your story, people will want to try the products too.  When they try and love the products and company too…as they join you…these people along with your up-line are the beginning of your team

4. Seize numerous opportunities to share product and business opportunity.  You meet many people everyday.  Share your story, samples of products and your passion with them.

5. Begin to make money.  As you have people buying the products and your team develops, you will begin making money…whether it is commission based, retail sales or both.

6. Start growing, learning, and gaining confidence.  As you meet new people, build your team and share your story, you will learn ways that work and do not work, you will be learning about the products and company and gain confidence in presenting your story and business opportunities to others.

7.  Enjoy the journey.  Have fun with what you are doing.  If you truly love the products and company, people will see your passion.

Oxygen and Acidity

Acid pH means less oxygen in the cells

 

Oxygen levels in the body are directly related to pH.

Increasing pH from 4.0 pH to 5.0 pH increases oxygen to the cells by ten fold. Each whole number increase by tenfold again, so 4.0 pH to a 6.0 pH increases oxygen by 100 times and raising pH from 4.0  pH to 7.0 pH increases oxygen levels by 1,000 times.

Unless the body’s pH level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal itself.  You cannot  improve your health until pH levels are above 7.  All drugs and medications ( over the counter & prescription) are toxic and can cause the pH to be acidic.

Acid decreases the body’s ability to repair damaged cells, decreases the ability to get rid of  heavy metals and it makes the body more susceptible to fatigue and illness.  Everything pivots on a balanced pH.  When body pH drops , enzymes are deactivated, digestion is interrupted; vital nutrients are not effectively assimilated.

Disease cannot survive in an alkaline state.   But, in a low oxygen/low pH (acidic) state, viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, Candida and Cancer cells all thrive.

An acid pH can result from poor nutrition, eating too many foods that leave an acid ash,  stress and anxiety, lack of sleep, exercise, environmental toxins, a slow ITT that leaves toxins accumulating in the colon, or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to raise the pH by using the minerals in the alkaline reserve, mainly sodium from the stomach and calcium from the bones, as well as potassium, magnesium and iron.    This is the cause of Osteoporosis and a number of other diseases.

If there are not enough minerals in the alkaline reserve,  acids buildup in the cells, causing pain, which may be diagnosed as Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, MS, Lupus, etc.

Therapeutic wraps great stress relievers

Therapeutic scented wrap

Relieve tension with my therapeutic wrap

Many years ago my husband bought a wrap for me that was filled with corn and you could either heat it or use it cold.  I liked it, but found that it lost its heat fast, was very heavy and didn’t conform well to my neck, where I was having most of my problems.  I suffered from stress related migraines and had to lay down in a dark, quiet room to get relief.

After some time of looking for a better wrap, my husband and I decided to create our own.  He is very much the brains behind the beginning of this endeavor.  He now helps me to cut the material, as I cannot cut a straight line to save my life!

I choose to fill them with rice and make them longer and skinnier, so they would wrap around the neck, arm or knee area more comfortably.  I also made them lighter in weight, just heavy enough, but not so heavy as to cause discomfort from wearing it around the neck.

For Fall and Winter, I make them from Polar fleece or flannel.  A good friend of mine suggested I add  mittens and gloves, and I thought that would be fun.  For the spring and summer time, I make them from soft cotton and leave off the gloves.

I found that different essential oils and scents  really helped me with to cope with stress and helped relieve my headaches.  That is why the HUGGZ come scented with Young Living essential oils and essential oil blends.  I can also make them unscented fro those who are sensitive to smells.

Thieves® Oil Essential Oil Blend:  Formulated with highly antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-infectious essential oils.

Thieves® Oil Blend was created based on research of a group of 15th century thieves in France who protected themselves by rubbing themselves with cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing plague victims. This Young Living proprietary blend was university tested and found to be highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. This proprietary blend has also been documented to kill over 99.96% of bacteria it comes into contact with.

Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) has a sweet, spicy fragrance that is stimulating and revitalizing. An important ingredient in Thieves® Blend due to its wonderful immune-enhancing features.

Lemon (Citrus limon) has antiseptic-like properties and contains compounds that amplify immunity. It promotes circulation, leukocyte formation and lymphatic function.

Cinnamon Bark (Cinnamomum verum) Warming and stimulating, it is comforting during the cold season.

Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata) is cooling, refreshing and energizing. Because it is relatively gentle and non-irritating, it is the preferred choice for children.

Rosemary* (Rosmarinus officinalis CT cineol) has a fresh, herbaceous, sweet, slightly medicinal aroma. An energizing oil, it may be beneficial for helping to restore mental alertness when experiencing fatigue.

*Caution—-Do not use on children under 4 years of age, pregnant or nursing women

Peace & Calming Essential Oil Blend:  Formulated with the essential oils of tangerine, ylang ylang, blue tansy, orange, and patchouli.  The gentle scent of Peace & Calming encourages deep relaxation and can assist with meditation to promote a peaceful night’s sleep.

Tangerine: can help relieve muscular contractions by calming and relaxing the walls of the muscles to treat spasms. The sweet citrus-like aroma of tangerine oil, when inhaled has sedative like qualities and can ease nervous tension and promote sleep. This can help in treating anxiety and stress.

Ylang Ylang: fights depression and relaxes body and soul, thereby driving away anxiety, sadness etc. It also has an uplifting effect on mood and induces and feeling of joy and hope.

Blue Tansy: Induces peace, comfort and relaxation, and is used to relieve  nervous tension, anxiety and stress. It banishes emotional strain instantaneously.

Orange: Gives a happy, relaxed feeling and works as a mood lifter.  It gives relief from anxiety,  anger, depression and inflammations.

Patchouli:  It uplifts mood, drives away disappointment and relaxes tension.

I am now in my second full year and have sold over 100 HUGGZ.  Contact me at [email protected] for details on how to order your very own HUGGZ!!
