What do women need to be healthy? Exercise, CheckUps & Good Nutrition are Key to Good Health
Health Supplement / Fitness Valentine Specials for
Throughout a womans lifecycle, good overall health depends more and more on a planned health program with several key components.
A planned program of regular exercise is probably the most important commitment a woman can make to her present and future health. With such a program, every other component of one's health plan seems to become easier and more effective.
Regular checkups and testing is a must, even when one has "no health problems." Conventional medical doctors say this includes annual mammograms and a lipid profile of all cholesterol fractions with follow-up as indicated. By age fifty, a DEXA scan of spine and hips to assess one's status relative to osteoporosis is an excellent idea.
Good nutrition is essential for health and well-being. We recommend foods high in phyto-nutrients and fiber and low in toxins and harmful fats and proteins.
More good reasons to pile on the cranberries
Daily Herald, 11/21/05 Patrick Massey MD, PhD
Fall and winter is rich with holidays, each with its own food traditions.
Where would we be at Thanksgiving without the cranberry? Did you know that the cranberry reportedly has been used both as a food and as a medicine by Native Americans for centuries? Modern medical research on the benefits of cranberries agree.
The American cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) grows wild in the United States and goes by many names including bear berry, black cranberry, bog cranberry, moosebeere, large cranberry, low cranberry, marsh apple, mountain cranberry and others. It is closely related to the blueberry and bilberry. Cranberries are an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamins and are very effective at treating and preventing urinary tract infections.
Medical research on cranberries dates back to the late 1840s. German physicians discovered eating cranberries could treat and prevent infections of the urinary tract. Cranberries have the ability to slightly acidify the urine and it was believed that was how they prevented infections.
Research over the past decade has revealed that cranberries do more than that. Compounds in cranberries actually keep bacteria from binding to the wall of the urinary bladder, a necessary step for infection of the urinary tract.
Although definitive research is lacking, most studies demonstrate that eating cranberries helps prevent urinary tract infections in those who are at greatest risk especially the elderly. I have found it to be well tolerated and very effective if used daily for more than two or three months. Some research suggests that when cranberries are used together with antibiotics, it might be more effective than antibiotics alone. However, there is no evidence that cranberries alone are effective in treating an ongoing urinary tract infection.
One recent study showed that cranberries also keep disease-causing viruses from binding to the walls of the intestine. Other claims that cranberries are effective against fungi, atherosclerosis, cancer, gall stones, diabetes, kidney stones and scurvy are not supported by reasonable medical studies.
Eating cranberries also might increase the absorption of vitamin B12 in patients who take medicine to reduce stomach acid.
Cranberry Concentrate C & E
The most common form of cranberry is as a juice. Studies using cranberry juice recommend drinking about 10 ounces a day. However, most cranberry juices contain a lot of sugar and might not be good for diabetics. Cranberry capsules, with doses of 300 to 1,200 mg per day, are an alternative.
Cranberry is very safe and even a dose as high as three or four liters a day is not toxic for adults, thought it might cause diarrhea.
For children, I recommend talking with a physician, since high doses could be toxic. Obviously, avoid cranberries if youre allergic to them or to blueberries.
So, at the Thanksgiving meal, use cranberries with gusto, knowing that you are not only eating something healthy, but that it is also a powerful and all-natural medicine.

What are important essential nutrients to consider for women?
Carotenoids - lycopene or beta-carotene perform some of the various anti-oxidant functions of Vitamin A itself. Unlike Vitamin A, supplementation with very high doses of the carotenes does not produce any significant toxicity.
Zinc - essential to health. Zinc supplementation in pregnancy has been remarkably beneficial. Zinc deficiency is probably a factor in the development of Alzheimer's disease.
Selenium - a very important anti-oxidant. Chronically low selenium levels in the diet are associated with an increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and immune disorders.
Chromium - a deficiency of chromium is related to glucose intolerance with high blood sugars and high insulin levels. Chromium can increase lean muscle mass, which means greater fat-burning potential.
Total Curve Promotes Breast Health
Breast cancer kills women. On average, breast cancer accounts for almost ten per cent of all cancer deaths in women, accounting for over half a million deaths in women world-wide, and almost one per cent of all deaths each year. Most deaths from breast cancer occur in the United States.
These are discouraging stats. They're made more discouraging when you consider that breast cancer is often preventable. While some cases are hereditary, more often than not, lifestyle, diet, exercise and other factors play a role in determining a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.
Total Curve believes that awareness of the issue is an important step in preventing breast cancer, while enhancing overall health in women. That's why we've written this article. We think you'll agree that knowledge is power, and with it comes the chance to save lives.
Breast cancer occurs most commonly in the breast's milk ducts, or the lining that supplies the ducts with milk. Eighty per cent of breast cancers are discovered when the carrier discovers a lump on her breast. Timing is crucial to a positive outcome. The earlier it's detected, the better the outlook for survival. Treatments for breast cancer include hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Statistically, an American woman has 12.5 % chance of developing breast cancer in her lifetime, with a one in 35 chance of death. While genetics play a role in determining the likelihood of breast cancer, it's a minor cause, at five per cent. The most common cause of breast cancer, by far, is lifestyle. Excessive alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise and obesity - especially after menopause - are leading causes of breast cancer in women.
Age is also a factor. Only five per cent of breast cancer patients are women under 40.
This makes it even more important to adopt healthy living habits when you're young. The list of breast cancer-preventing habits is extensive.
You can start by eating mushrooms and drinking green tea. A recent study of over 2,000 women suggests that women who regularly ate mushrooms had a 50% lower rate of breast cancer. When combined with green tea, the risk was lowered by 90%.
In fact, make vegetables a staple of your diet, especially brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts). Studies show that women who consume one and a half servings of brassica vegetables every day have a 42% reduced risk of developing breast cancer. Brassica vegetable consumption works inversely to breast cancer risk. The more brassicas consumed, the lower the risk.
Avoid obesity, especially after menopause. A recent study concluded that an added weight of 22 lbs after menopause increased breast cancer risk by 18%.
Alcohol and second hand smoke are also leading causes of breast cancer. Studies have conclusively found a link between women who consumed two units of alcohol each day increased their chances of developing breast cancer by 8% and increased proportionately for every additional drink. Second hand smoke, particularly in pre-menopause women, increased the likelihood of developing breast cancer later in life by an astounding 70%!
Total Curve can help you reduce your risk. We've strategically placed buckwheat and watercress in our Total Curve Daily Supplement because they're both proven to increase overall breast health in women. What's really encouraging though is that new medical evidence suggests that watercress is a powerful inhibitor of breast cancer. In a recent British study, scientists concluded that watercress interferes with a protein responsible for breast cancer. In fact, evidence from the study suggests that watercress simply 'turns the breast cancer signal off', stopping the cancer growth on the spot.
This is good news for women and another reason to let Total Curve 3-Step Breast Enhancement Therapy enhance your body with beautiful, natural and healthy breasts.
