How to Slow the Aging Process…

If you’re over 50 then you’ve probably had the experience of not being able to do things that you used to be able to do pretty easily… If you are experiencing:

 

  • Low energy levels
  • Lack of motivation to do things.
  • Finding it harder to get a decent night’s sleep
  • Stiffness and niggly aches in the body.
  • Finding you are not as sharp as you used to be.
  • Lack of mental clarity and focus.
  • Finding weight management an issue
  • Finding it hard to maintain a healthy diet

 

It’s called aging, and while there is currently no way to completely avoid aging we can take anti-aging steps to slow it down.

To do this we must understand the 5 causes of premature aging…

 

Free Radical Damage to Cells
Under normal circumstances your body’s natural antioxidants can neutralize harmful free radicals, but system stressors like poor diet, environmental toxins, and emotional stress can tip the scales in the favour of oxidation damage.

 

Immune System Deterioration
As you age your body produces fewer immune cells and does a poor job of quickly getting those cells to the places they’re needed. The result? You get sick more often and it takes you longer to recover.

 

Hormone Imbalance
Hormones are how your brain sends instructions to your organs. Brain cell oxidization and under-nourished, under-performing mitochondria (the powerhouse of your cells) can throw your hormones out of balance.

 

Decreased Organ Function
Almost every organ in your body becomes less efficient as the cells in them age and become oxidised. Once again, under-performing cell mitochondria not receiving the nutrition it needs to function at optimal levels is a major contributor here.

 

Neurological Deterioration
1 in 3 seniors die from Alzheimer’s or another type of neurodegenerative disease.

 

If all of this makes you a little uneasy then I want to tell you one big step you can take on the path to optimal health… GET YOUR NUTRITION RIGHT!

 

 

Making sure you are getting an ample supply of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, pre and probiotics and antioxidants (free radical scavengers) is a powerful way to slow down the aging process and revitalize your body.

 

And I am not talking about the cheap nutritional supplements (if that’s what you can call them) off the supermarket and chemist shelves. I am talking about the highest quality, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements.

 

Did you know that there are 3 grades of nutritional supplements for human consumption? Those 3 grades are:

 

Pharmaceutical Grade is the highest quality grade of vitamins and supplements meaning the purity; dissolution and absorption meet the highest regulatory standard verified by an independent party. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins and nutrients may be available without a prescription, but they are typically sold by licensed health care professionals.

 

Medical Grade vitamins and nutrients are also high-grade supplements but may not meet all the standards of pharmaceutical grade supplements. Prenatal vitamins normally fall into this category.

 

Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade supplements are typically sold in health food stores, chemists and, readily available on supermarket shelves. These supplements may not always be tested for absorption, dissolution or purity. Additionally, these supplements do not always have the same concentration of active ingredients as what is listed on the label.

 

Did you know that 98% of supplements readily available in stores are cosmetic grade… the lowest grade safe for human consumption?

 

The Bottom Line: If you are serious about attaining optimal health, you need to source premium, preferably pharmaceutical-grade; nutritional supplements to stop-gap your nutritional deficiencies.

 

If you are looking for powerful nutritional supplements that will support you in:

 

More energy for your day (but not overwhelming… but available if you need it)

  • Mental Clarity & Focus
  • Sleep Sounder & Deeper
  • Joint Support
  • Reduce Aches and Discomforts
  • Supports Gut Health
  • Weight Management
  • No Fasting or Starving
  • Anti-Aging Antioxidants
  • Better Exercising
  • Faster Recover Times
  • Lean Muscle Support

 

You need to be accessing powerful, high-quality, pharmaceutical nutritional supplements… because you deserve to feel the best you can feel. And what makes premium grade nutritional supplements superior? It’s all about the purity and absorption rate… it’s in the science! We recommended Le-vel Thrive Nutritional Supplements because they are premium.

Other powerful steps you can take to slow down the aging process are:

Keep moving… regular exercise, even walking every day and preferably in nature, can make a big difference to your wellbeing.

 

Removing refined hydrolyzed oils like vegetable and soy oils, fast foods, processed packaged foods, refined flours, foods containing gluten (bread, bagels scones, pizza, pasta), and sugary foods and drinks (especially soft drinks and energy drinks). This is not hard to do if you try removing one thing at a time and replacing it with an alternative like organic cold-pressed coconut oil for cooking instead of vegetable or soy oils.

 

Remember to take time out for you… de-stress by taking up meditation, having a relaxation de-stress hypnotherapy session, getting a luxury massage, pouring a long hot bubble bath, reading a book or listening to some relaxing, soothing music.

Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program

We live in an age of where chronic stress is fast becoming the major contributor to weight gain (and weight loss), and chronic illness in our bodies. Stress about our relationships… our family… our children… and our health, and throw in workplace and environmental stress and you have a toxic minefield. And with our modern busy lives, it often feels like its never-ending battle, trying to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle.

 

 

And unfortunately, by only focusing on diet and/or exercise when trying to release weight, can lead to stagnant results and a lack of motivation that keep you stuck… preventing you from releasing weight… especially those stubborn bits in all the wrong places.

 

While diet and exercise are an important part of a weight release program, there are two other crucial important areas that you will need to look at if you are ever to succeed in your weight release or weight gain program. You will need to look at adequate nutrition, and the part that your emotional mind plays in the equation.

 

Firstly, due to over production and growth of food on the planet’s available soils, the soils of the world are fast becoming deficient in essential minerals and nutrients, and as a result, we are not getting the nutrition from the food we eat like our forefathers and mothers did. So unless you are sourcing or growing your own certified organic wholefoods you are probably not getting all the nutrition your body needs.

 

Therefore, it’s vitally important in this modern age to supplement with high quality and preferably pharmaceutical-grade vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, probiotics and antioxidants to ensure our bodies are getting the nutrition it craves. If you are feeding your body with the correct balance of quality nutrients then the hunger cravings, and the cravings for nutrition-less junk food, processed refined packaged foods and sugary foods will subside.

 

 

Secondly, if you’ve struggled and gone from one diet and/or exercise program to another, from low-carb to Paleo, from aerobics to boot camp… you’re likely to continue the trend UNLESS you get to the root of your weight issues… both excess weight and under-weight issues… and many times those issues lie in your unconscious emotional mind. Unless addressed, stress in our daily lives can accumulate and create emotional blockages (source) in the body that show up (symptoms) as skin conditions, sickness, illness, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, chronic pain… and weight gain or weight loss.

 

The challenge is that the ability to eat well, exercise, and feel safe releasing weight are all run unconsciously in your emotional mind, and if your emotional mind’s belief is that it is not safe to release weight, and you do not address why, then you are setting yourself up for failure. And these negative emotional beliefs create what we call emotional blockages in the body.

 

Fortunately, hypnotherapy is a fast and powerful way to access your unconscious emotional mind and remove these stress-related emotional blockages, and adjust or eliminate any habits, patterns or beliefs that are no longer serving you. In our program we also use powerful specific therapeutic massage, designed to remove the emotional blockages (think stubborn fat) from your body.

 

Paul Holcroft and Khloe Syllebranque working together have created the Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program. A program designed for under-weight and excess-weight management success. This newly designed holistic program features specialized hypnotherapy, remedial massage and lifestyle changes for everyone wanting to bring their body back into balance.

 

Not only is this program a new approach to weight management issues, it also addresses other stress related issues including skin conditions, self-confidence and self-esteem issues, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, chronic fatigue, nagging pain and chronic pain in the body. Each person is consulted and assessed on an individual basis so as to ascertain the best possible approach to each individuals needs.

 

Your first consultation is free and is an informal meeting over coffee to discuss your individual needs from the program, and to ascertain whether the program is the best step forward for you at this time.

 

If you have tried everything else and are serious about getting to the source of your issues and bringing your body back into balance then the Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program is for you. Call or message us now for a free initial informal consultation on 0424 671 411 or PM us through Facebook and begin the journey back to ultimate health.

 

Is Your Thyroid Out of Balance?

Is Your Thyroid Out of Balance?

 

Telltale Signs that Your Thyroid may be out of Balance:

 

Fatigue: If you are getting plenty of regular sleep but still wake up tired it is possible that your thyroid hormone level may be low. If your mind is constantly active and you cannot seem to sleep at night then you may have an over-active thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Either way, your thyroid hormones may well be out of balance.

 

Anxiety & Panic Episodes: If you suffer from mood swings, anxiety, panic episodes or depression, this can also be an indication of a thyroid disorder (hyperthyroidism).

 

Brain Fog: If you get days where you feel as though you’re walking around in a fog all day, your thyroid may be out of balance.

 

How’s Your Poop? Often people with an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) complain of constipation, and those with an over active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) have the opposite; diarrhoea or more frequent sloppy bowel movements.

 

Weight Management Issues: If you’re eating habits have not changed, you exercise regularly but still cannot seem to remove stubborn excess weight, the cause may be an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).

 

3 Fatty Acids in Coconut Oil that Your Thyroid Craves

The unique medium-chain fatty acid profile of coconut oil is what makes it stand apart from all other oils and gives it the ability to help the body self-regulate (something it is quite able to do).

 

These fatty acids, including lauric acid (found in a mother’s breast milk), are small enough that they can be gobbled up by the mitochondria in the cells. Because of this, they provide immediate energy for the body.

 

Lauric acid is converted to monolaurin, which is a potent antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal substance. Because monolaurin is a monoglyceride, it can destroy lipid-coated viruses including measles, influenza, HIV, herpes and a number of pathogenic bacteria.

 

Another fatty acid that coconut oil contains is caprylic acid, also found in breast milk. Also known as octanoic acid, this saturated fatty acid has a number of health promoting properties and the innate ability to treat yeast-like fungus in the intestines.

 

Capric acid is present in very small amounts in goat’s milk and cow’s milk, but is abundant in tropical oils, including coconut oil.

 

It is a medium-chain fatty acid that has potent antimicrobial and antiviral properties. In the body, capric acid is converted to monocaprin, a form that can readily fight viruses, bacteria, and the yeast Candida albicans.

 

Because of this unique combination of fatty acids, coconut oil suppresses inflammation and repairs tissue while inhibiting microorganisms that cause the inflammation in the first place.

 

Polyunsaturated oils are the real enemy and many people still prefer to cook with expeller-pressed or solvent-extracted oils. If you cook with vegetable oil, it is time to stop. These oils are only increasing inflammation in your body. If you have reason to believe that your thyroid may be working only half time for you, make the switch today to organic cold-pressed coconut oil.

 

Not all coconut oil is created equal… and some are better than others. As was the case when coconut oil was used heavily in the food processing industry years ago, there is still a lot of refined coconut oil in circulation. Obviously, the more processed the oil, the less health benefits it possesses. –Source: http://pages.thealternativedaily.com/alerts-click-coconut-thyroid/

 

Other Natural Ways to Improve Thyroid Function

In addition to including coconut oil in your diet, try these other natural ways to balance your thyroid function.

 

  • Switch from iodized table salt to sea salt, as it has more minerals that help support better thyroid functioning.

 

  • Chronic stress is said to be one of the main triggers of hypothyroidism so practicing stress reduction techniques such as meditation and deep-breathing can help as can regular de-stress hypnotherapy sessions.

 

  • Follow a gluten-free diet has also been shown to improve thyroid function. Research has found a link between wheat allergies and thyroid disease.

 

  • Avoid chemicals like triclosan, which is commonly found in items like antibacterial soap, deodorant, lotions, and even in cutting boards.

 

  • .. this is especially important to correct thyroid function. Walking briskly for 30 minutes a day is a good place to start.

 

  • Supplement with probiotics, vitamins and minerals. Many natural herbs can also assist in weight management and bringing the body back into balance.

 

  • Take high-quality supplements, such as zinc, selenium, manganese, chromium, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E.
