The Pink Ribbon That Could Save Your Life

October 21st, 2008

Walk into any crowded room these days and chances are you’ll be standing next to someone who has either been diagnosed with breast cancer or knows someone who has. With over 2.3 million women diagnosed last year, next to skin cancer, it’s the second most common killer of women. According to 2007 statistics, there were 178,480 new cases of breast cancer in women and 2,030 cases in men. But, there is good news. It starts with a little education from the October National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer is a disease that is caused by the uncontrolled division of cells in breast tissue and results in “Benign” or “Malignant” tumors. Benign tumors are the most common (representing over 80% of breast cancers) and the easiest to treat. Malignant tumors are far more dangerous, can damage other tissues and spread rapidly throughout the body. Allowed to progress without treatment, malignant tumors can advance to “Metastatic” cancer and reach the bones, lungs, liver or brain.

The most common risk factors for contracting breast cancer are:

  • Gender

Disorders of the Digestive Tract and How Goji Berries Help

  • Ulcers can develop in the stomach, esophagus or small intestines. The cause can be bacterial or by certain pain medications. Ulcers cause a lot of pain and possible bleeding. Stress can aggravate the problem. A special diet and certain medications are usually prescribed. Goji berries have the specific anti-inflammatory SOD enzyme that reduces the inflammation caused by ulcers.

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome is when the muscles in the intestines do not work properly. This can cause abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea. Stress can also bring on irritable bowel syndrome. A high fiber, low fat diet is usually prescribed. Goji berries help relieve stress, which can help in the prevention of the irritable bowel.

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is caused by stomach acid backflow into the esophagus. A weakness in the muscle that acts as a valve between the stomach and the esophagus. This causes what is known as heartburn. The acid can cause major damage to the esophagus if left untreated. Usually people that are overweight suffer from GERD. Goji berries help with weight loss, and along with exercise will help prevent the acid reflux.

Goji Berries Help Provide Relief for Arthritis Sufferers

October 1st, 2008

Tibetan Goji berries have been around for many years. They have become known for having the most nutrients, of any fruit in the world. With their abundance of antioxidants, the health benefits of Goji berries seem endless. From preventing heart disease and diabetes, to improving your skin, Goji berries also help provide relief to arthritis sufferers.

Arthritis is one of most painful and debilitating diseases. Though, more common in the elderly, arthritis strikes people of all ages, including children. Arthritis is when your joints become inflamed, causing a lot of pain and discomfort. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis also known as degenerative joint disease. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage that serves as a cushion between the joints of the bones wears away causing bone against bone. Swelling usually occurs and this can be very painful. Osteoarthritis is usually due to aging, but can be caused by an injury, being overweight, and stressing the joints.

Studies have shown that antioxidants can help in the fight against the free radicals, responsible for the inflammation in arthritis. The free radical, superoxide anion, is the inflammation factor in arthritis, and our body produces the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) to help neutralize this free radical. In some cases of arthritis, the production of superoxide anion is greater than what the body can handle, and is unable to produce enough of the SOD enzyme to protect against the inflammation of the joints.

Foods with high levels of antioxidants are key to fighting free radicals, and eating Goji berries, known for the high levels of antioxidants, help produce the anti-inflammatory enzyme SOD therefore, reducing the inflammation and pain. SOD also plays major role in protecting the body against other diseases. This is most powerful natural free radical fighting antioxidant the body has.

Eating a natural healthy diet is beneficial to everybody. Including Goji berries in your daily diet will help your body maintain its natural defense against free radicals. If you are one of many people that suffer from arthritis, Goji berries will help your body fight off the free radicals responsible for internal inflammation. This will help relieve your joints from pain and stiffness. Also, there are aquatic classes to help with joint mobility offered through the Arthritis Foundation.

The Effects of Aging and Staying Young Forever

September 29th, 2008

When most people look back to when they were 18 years old, they remember a time when the world was their oyster. They were just beginning college, looking forward to getting married, raising a family and creating a meaningful career. But, scientists know that after a person enters young adulthood, physical signs of aging have already begun to appear.

As early as 20 years of age, many people notice that wrinkles are beginning to appear, they’re losing a little hair and even their nails are beginning to thin. By age 30, the majority of human organs have already started to show the effects of the aging process. At 40, you begin to show signs of a slowing metabolism – gaining weight is easier and losing it is harder. Between 40 and 65 years of age, you’re aware of losses in muscle strength, sight and hearing. Most women start to lose bone density at an alarming rate years before menopause. By the time you’ve reached 65, chances are you’ve been diagnosed with arthritis, osteoporosis or some other chronic disease such as heart disease, hypertension or cancer. Pretty grim news. But, it doesn’t have to be.
Over the past 50 years, researchers have learned a lot about how our diet affects the aging process. Most recommend that we make early changes to our diet that includes:

  • Limiting the number of calories we eat
  • Taking multi-vitamins
  • Eating more whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Switching from whole to non-fat dairy products
  • Eating more lean meats and fish

Another development that has been the basis of hundreds of published studies and countless newspaper and magazine articles is the value of antioxidants in diminishing the aging process.
Antioxidants are naturally occurring molecules that slow or prevent the oxidation of other molecules. They’re also used as additives to help eliminate deterioration of packaged foods and to extend their shelf life. Oxidation can be responsible for the destruction of cells in many diseases and significantly contributes to the aging process.
A number of foods are rich in antioxidants, are recommended to help slow the aging process and to prevent naturally occurring diseases. “ACES” foods that contain vitamin A, C, E and selenium are common in many of your favorite foods:

  • Vitamin A – dark green vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, eggs and many dairy products like milk, butter and cheese
  • Vitamin C – fruits, red peppers, broccoli, tomatoes and liver
  • Vitamin E – vegetable oils, peanuts, corn, asparagus and fortified breakfast cereals
  • Selenium – dried nuts, fresh pork, turkey, mushrooms, tuna and striped bass

Antioxidants are also present in a number of “superfoods” like Goji berries. While Goji berries are grown all over the world, the best quality berries are cultivated at high altitude in Tibet. They contain 18 amino acids, 12 times the protein of apples, oranges or strawberries, are a good source of vitamin C and beta carotene. The polysaccharides in Goji berries can help to combat many common diseases of aging like cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and osteoporosis and have been part of the Tibetan diet for thousands of years.
Getting on in years is an evitable part of life. But, getting old doesn’t have to be. By watching what you eat, drinking plenty of water and getting regular exercise, you can significantly slow the aging process and enjoy living into your “golden years.”
