THREE RESOLUTIONS WORTH KEEPING

 

Its two thirdbigstock-I-m-The-Best-324629s of the way through January now. Have you, like most Americans, already come up short on keeping your new year’s resolutions if you even bothered with them at all this year? We start out with the best of intentions, but so easily end up getting distracted by the hectic pace and inevitable chaos of life.

 

Despite the advantages of living in the “Information Age” with easy access to all manner of conveniences that are designed to maximize our productivity and quality of life, we are living in challenging times. Our bodies and minds are being bombarded with unprecedented levels of stress. From the relentless demands of immediate interpersonal access (smart phones) to the cumulative burdens of environmental and emotional toxicity associated with living in these days, we would be wise to heed the words of the Apostle Paul who exhorts us to “Be no longer conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds”. (Romans 12:2)

Even though we recognize that our body is a temple, it is far too easy to take it for granted and mortgage our future with poor choices today. With that in mind, lets look at a few concrete changes or resolutions that are well worth incorporating into our day to day living for 2015 and beyond:

1. HYDRATE – Dehydration is rampant in our culture, and the insidious toll it takes on your health is even more so considering how easily avoidable it is. The leading cause of kidney stones and constipation, dehydration bogs down your metabolism, making even your cells tired. Make cool filtered water (and a little fresh lemon to help alkalize the body) your drink of choice today, and toss the sodas (especially diet). Drink at least a half ounce of water per pound of body weight per day, and up to twice that amount if you exercise (which you should) or drink alcohol or caffeine (which perhaps you shouldn’t – certainly not in excess).

2. GET MOVING – Regular moderate exercise will do wonders for your metabolism, your energy level, your dress or pant size, and your outlook on life. Not to mention all those infamous markers of health such as blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels that your doctor uses to assess your body’s obvious lack of pharmaceuticals. Forty five minutes of brisk walking three times a week is enough to make dramatic improvements, but adding some anaerobic exercise and light weight bearing repetitions will greatly enhance and diversify your results (i.e.- bone mass gains,etc.).

3. EAT TO LIVE – We have never had so many choices of foods (and cheaply manufactured items masquerading as food) to eat as Americans do today. Only in the last generation has the demand for consumer convenience and extended shelf life made such a happy marriage, creating massive conglomerates that enjoy obscene profits at the expense of our ignorance and our health.

The “patterns of this world” are ever changing in response to the insatiable lusts of mankind, but make no mistake; the things of this world are fiercely set against the wisdom of God and His children. Paul could scarcely have imagined that 2,000 years after he wrote those inspired words, we would be sitting on the couch mindlessly watching television and snacking on fast foods and soda or a highly processed mixture of genetically modified grains, sugar and toxic fats with a few synthetic vitamins added back in to create an illusion of wholesomeness. God knew that the message He gave to the first century church to avoid the corruption of this world would be pure wisdom for all ages, but especially so in these last days.

In order to eat to live, we need to eat living food, and living food does not generally come processed in a box. Reject the foolishness of man’s wisdom and its culture of death, and take advantage of the wonderful diversity of nutrient dense, organic foods that God has made readily available.

Granted, this is easier said than done, as man’s greed has corrupted all of our food sources to some extent through factory farming, genetic engineering and the indiscriminate use of hormones, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, and a host of other synthetic chemicals that are ever escalating our toxic burden. It is no wonder that so many people suffer from chronic degenerative illnesses, the symptoms of which are the body’s way of revealing a compromised bioterrain within.

This is where Logos Nutritionals and the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol can make such a profound difference in one’s quality of life. The authentic natural medicines that we offer are designed to strengthen the body’s detoxification pathways, restore the integrity of organ systems and revitalize cellular energy and immunity. My father once pointed out to me that “Man turns to excellence just as surely as a flower to the sun”. This is true, whether in the beauty of the arts, the dependable efficacy of a nutritional supplement, or the thrill of athletic competition. We rejoice in the opportunity to serve, both through the quality of our products and the priceless impact of the message of God’s love that we share.

The three resolutions presented here are ones that must be embraced as a lifestyle if you hope to thrive during these difficult times. There are others that may be more obvious and pressing such as stopping smoking or any habit that may be holding you back from achieving your goals. Personally, having for the most part successfully internalized these big three over the years, my main resolution for this year is to write more consistently. To that end, I wholeheartedly solicit the prayers of my readers.

So here’s to 2015; may it be a year of breakthrough in your health, your attitude and your relationships!

Logos Nutritionals Announces New and Improved Liver Support Formula

1Liver CS 60s-New Clip Liver CS Plus was already among the most outstanding liver support/detoxification formulations in the world, having been featured in the Townsend Letter to Doctors and Patients and by the Health Sciences Institute, but recent enhancements to the formula have made it even better. 

An established favorite among natural practitioners, Liver CS Plus has accumulated a loyal following in the hepatitis C community and a growing demand in the preventive health and anti-aging markets.

Detoxification is becoming more and more of an issue every day as our bodies are being burdened with ever increasing demands from chronic low level toxic chemical exposures. This is why revitalizing detoxification organs and promoting elimination pathways is such a prominent aspect of the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol.

The new encapsulated formula is cleaner since we removed the excipients required for manufacturing tablets, and we boosted the antioxidant potential of the formula substantially by adding NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine), a sulfur based amino acid that binds heavy metals, promotes glutathione production and is thought to inhibit the formation of biofilms.

No question, with the changes we have made, Liver CS Plus is one of the most profound natural medicines on the planet with its ability to protect and promote liver function.  Try it today and give your liver a break… it is, next to your heart, your hardest working organ.

Why Cancer comes back…

 

I recently read an excellent article on Newstarget.com about why cancer comes back… basically due to collateral damage from so-called treatments. Compromised immunity from drug treatments opens us up to a multitude of problems. Most chemo agents work by generating massive amounts of free radicals which can disrupt tumor growth, but with considerable collateral damage to our healthy cells.

Several things worth mentioning:

Chemicals and other toxins might be causitive agents in activating genes or altering genetic expression at the cellular level, but cancerous growths are typically fueled by excessive hormone levels – most often insulin or estrogen -which explains the explosion of cancer in our society… too many refined carbs and xenoestrogens in the diet.

For those battling cancer (especially with chemo/radiation), detoxification is critical. Liver supporting nutrients and antioxidant support may not be enough to keep pace at times… organic coffee enemas and far infrared saunas can be very helpful, and exercising to stimulate the lymphatic system is mandatory.

The master gland of immunity (the thymus)is the cornerstone of cell mediated immunity. It is responsible for secreting proteins that modulate the immune response and help immune cells to recognize self vs intruders. The thymus is very susceptible to radiation and chemotoxicity, so glandular therapy to revitalize the gland’s function is critical to restoring integrity to the immune system.

Probiotics and omega three fats are also foundational to immunity and to controlling inflammation, the primary destructive force in the body.
