Ginseng!

Ginseng is one of the most popular of all the herbs or roots and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.

Is it a root or herb?

It is considered both! 

Ginseng is a slow-growing, short plant with fleshy roots.

The length of time it is grown determines the classification: fresh, white or red.

  • Fresh ginseng is harvested before 4 years.
  • White ginseng is harvested between 4–6 years.
  • Red ginseng is harvested after 6 or more years.

Reputed benefits of ginseng can include: increased energy, sharper cognitive function, anti-inflammatory effects, treatment of erectile dysfunction, flu prevention and lowering blood sugar.

What is Ghee and How Does It Benefit Us?

Ghee is made by slowly simmering butter that has been churned from cream. The process separates the milk solids and the water from the butter fat. This slow cooking process also develops a rich almost nutty flavor in the ghee butter.

Ghee is 100% natural and is not stabilized in anyway. The natural cooking process removes the water and milk solids, creating a smooth and spreadable butter. Ghee will last at room temperature for 3-5 months and can be stored longer if kept in a refrigerator.

  • Ghee is a natural source for vitamins A, E and K2 which promotes healthy skin and vision. The K2 helps your body to utilize minerals in your diet such as calcium supporting strong bones.
  • Consuming ghee helps support weight loss, like other MCT’s (medium-chain fatty acids). Energy from these burn other fats in the body and help to eliminate toxins.
  • Short-chain fatty acid butyrate in ghee aids the digestive tract in detoxing.
  • Butyrate levels in Ghee help to create a more alkaline system which reduces inflammation throughout the body.
  • Ghee helps your body absorb fat-soluble vitamins, helping with leaky gut syndrome, IBS and Chron’s.
  • High levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) have been shown in studies to reduce blood pressure.

The Grass-fed butter used in Sun Rain Grow Ghees is higher in Omega-3.
Sun Rain Grow Ghee is lactose free making it paleo and Keto friendly.

Flu Season 2018 Arrived!

The spread of the flu according to Consumer Reports:

“More than 200 viruses cause the common cold, and hundreds of flu strains emerge each year.
And those germs are everywhere. A sick person’s cough or sneeze has millions of viral particles. A cough can expel droplets at speeds of about 50 mph, a sneeze at more than 100 mph, sending them 6 feet or farther.”

A synopsis from the CDC shows higher numbers of reported flu cases as well as higher variances of the types of flu going around in 2018 is higher than average.

Marietta Health Foods understands your discomfort!

We suggest homeopathy as a special approach!
Stimulating your body’s natural defenses can help fight those cold and flu symptoms. Runny noses, coughing congestion, sore throats, headaches, nausea and fever and chills are no fun!

We offer products that can build your resistance and help speed the relief of your flu symptoms! Bundle up and come by to see us or send a friend or neighbor who cares!

Osteoporosis Facts – Part II

osteoporosis

What is the danger of osteoporosis?

  1. Fractures! The most common osteoporotic fractures are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip.
  2. Most hip fractures are caused by falls. A hip fracture is more than a broken bone. Breaking your hip is usually a major life change. You will probably need surgery, which can take as long as a year to recover from. Persons in recovery from hip fractures are generally unable to walk or drive cars and are often bedridden or in a wheel chair during the long period of healing. [https://www.betterbones.com/osteoporosis/osteoporosis-bone-health-statistics/]
  3. Hip fractures have serious risks associated with them, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
  4. Compression fractures and broken bones from osteoporosis can cause significant pain that lasts for several months.
  5. Spinal compression fractures can cause nerve roots to be compressed; your doctor may recommend surgery to stabilize the crushed spinal bones.
  6. Fractures may lead to a lifestyle that includes taking medicines. Over the counter medicines that help with pain from fractures include acetaminophen (like Tylenol) and NSAIDS, which are anti-inflammatories, (like Ibuprofen and Naproxen). Regular use of NSAIDS may mean you have to take another medicine known as a proton pump inhibitor to protect your digestive system. If pain from fractures is extreme, you may need to take prescribed narcotics.

Steps to slow osteoporosis progression include:

  1. Build strong bones by performing weight-bearing exercise most days for about 30 minutes. Weight bearing exercises include walking, jogging, stair climbing, dancing, weight lifting and aerobics.
  2. Perform resistance exercises 2 or 3 days a week. Resistance exercises include free weights and resistance bands.
  3. Have a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Calcium is found in many foods, including dairy products like milk and yogurt. If you think ‘re not getting enough calcium in your diet, check with your doctor about taking supplements. Brand names with proven reliability are best. Avoid coral calcium as so far there is no scientific proof it is effective against osteoporosis.
  4. Avoid
  5. Limit alcohol to no more than 2 drinks a day for men, and for women. no more than 1 drink a day.
  6. 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day is safe if your diet has adequate calcium.
  7. Your doctor may prescribe bisphosphonates or another medication and possibly, but less commonly, hormone therapy.
  8. Avoid trip hazards, for example loose carpets, that can cause falls. Be careful when lifting or carrying items as this can cause spinal fractures. With advanced osteoporosis mild movements, such as bending over or coughing, can cause the spine to fracture. [https://www.karmanhealthcare.com/medical-health-issues/osteoporosis/] [https://www.karmanhealthcare.com/medical-health-issues/osteoporosis/].
  9. Be aware that certain medications increase the rate of bone loss including some anti-seizure medications, chemotherapy, proton pump inhibitors and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osteoporosis].

Osteoporosis Facts – Part I

The word “osteoporosis” is from the Greek terms for “porous bones”.
Osteoporosis is a part of frailty syndrome. 

cause-of-osteoporosis

Who is most at risk?

  1. Those with a family history of osteoporosis, or a history of family members who have had broken bones from minor injuries.
  2. Women with lower estrogen levels. Two reasons for lower estrogen levels include the estrogen level drop after menopause, or ovaries having been removed.
  3. Men with decreased testosterone
  4. Women are at higher risk than men. Currently, in America, approximately 8 million women and 2 million men have an osteoporosis diagnosis.
  5. In Europe, 22 million women and 5.5 million men had osteoporosis in 2010, indicating European women are higher risk than American women.
  6. Persons who have taken long-term steroid medicines, like those used for asthma or COPD.
  7. Whites and those of Southeast Asian descent are the highest at risk. African and Hispanic races still have significant risk, but not as high.
  8. Persons with an improper diet in childhood.
  9. People with very small body frames or who are exceptionally thin are higher risk as they often have less bone mass.
  10. People with scoliosisof unknown cause.
  11. Low-level exposure to heavy metals is associated with an increased loss of bone mineral density.
  12. Persons who have a history of alcohol abuse.
  13. Persons who have a history of anorexia nervosa.

How can you know?

In the early stages you probably won’t have symptoms! Osteoporosis is known as the “silent crippler” as most people don’t know they have it till it is too late.

  1. Measure your height and compare the results with past measurements. Loss of height might be an indication.
  2. Stooped posture can also be an indication. (Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a stooped posture).
  3. Chronic pain resulting in reduced mobility.
  4. Your family’s health history.
  5. Your doctor may suggest a bone density test. Even early on, lower-than-normal bone mass (called osteopenia) may be seen and this sometimes progresses to osteoporosis.

A History of Silver as Protecting Health

Historic Silver, Interesting Facts

Scientific American states:

vampire aversion to silverLike werewolves and vampires, bacteria have a weakness: silver. 

Silver — in the form of dissolved ions — attacks bacterial cells...

Ancient cultures believed silver would keep them healthy.

  • To prevent spoilage, the Roman Empire stored wine in silver urns.
  • Hippocrates taught the use of silver to support healing.
  • Early American settlers tossed silver coins into wells and barrels of water believing it would make it safe to drink.
  • Dairy farmers used silver pails to collect milk; apparently it kept milk from spoiling for hours, without refrigeration.
  • Silver was used in dishware, drinking vessels and eating utensils, as it was known that disease-causing pathogens could not survive in the presence of silver; even the Chinese emperors and their courts ate with silver chopsticks.

In more modern times:

  • During WWI troops used silver leaf to combat infection in wounds.
  • In fact, colloidal silver was commonly used until 1938.
  • Some of the 1950's generation still remember their grandparents putting silver dollars in milk to prolong its freshness at room temperature.
  • Science Digest, March 1978 issue, published an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reporting: "Thanks to eye-opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. An antibiotic kills perhaps a half-dozen different disease organisms, but silver kills some 650. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery in the 1970s: "Silver is the best all-around germ fighter we have."
  • Even now, NASA uses silver in the water purification systems of the International Space Station.
