Healthy Heart testimonial

We received this wonderful testimonial during a conference, and wanted to share Jeff’s story with you. Thank you so much to Jeff, whom we are so glad to have helped with our Healthy Heart formula!

“I am a 50 yr. old male with no prior cardiac conditions, no family history of cardiac issues. I eat well, never smoked , not much of a drinker. I’ve been a competitive athlete my entire life-I’m in excellent physical condition.
This is why it was so shocking when I experienced my first Afib episode about four years ago. I woke up in the middle of the night to my heart racing and doing flips in my chest. 
To say it scared me is a huge understatement. After being told at the ER that night that I did indeed experience an Afib episode, I earnestly began researching this seemingly debilitating health issue.
I saw a couple cardiologists and they wanted to put me on blood-thinners, as well as a couple other drugs.
I wanted no part of this. I was determined to treat this problem naturopathically.
I began to see a pattern developing when I had an Afib episode. They happened every now and then, but they only occurred in the middle of the night and they lasted for about 4-6 hours.
There was one glaring trigger: alcohol. Even if I only had one beer with dinner(I only had a beer once in awhile anyway), I would automatically go into an Afib episode later that night.
That was an easy decision. No more alcohol (at all).
I also began to research different herbs that might help alleviate my Afib. I was well-verses in anything natural that could help alleviate afib.
I decided to see an ND for my issue and see ordered a bunch of tests. She also told me to start taking a supplement called Healthy Heart by Priority One Vitamins.
I examined every ingredient with a fine-tooth comb. This supplement had EVERY ingredient that I had been researching over the previous six months.
Long story short…after realizing a couple other triggers for my Afib attacks (high sodium, high sugar, and alcohol), I’ve developed a winning recipe for keeping Afib at bay.
I take Healthy Heart 3x day, drink a gallon of water every day (staying hydrated in essential for Afib patients, no alcohol, and keeping my sodium/sugar levels low).
There isn’t a better supplement on the market for AFib sufferers!”

Guest Blog: Our Lymphatic System

Our Lymphatic System

Our Lymphatic SystemDr. Melina Roberts

The lymphatic system is our secondary circulatory system.  It plays an important role in supporting our immune system and treating inflammation in the body.  The lymphatic system circulates throughout the entire body.  The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic fluid, lymphatic vessels, lymphatic nodes, the spleen, the thymus, tonsils and Peyer’s patches in the gut.  The lymphatic system drains and cleans up all the tissues in our body.

Lymph nodes are biological filtering units and are distributed throughout the body.  Lymph nodes produce white blood cells called lymphocytes that defend the body against microorganisms and other harmful pathogens or toxins in the lymphatic fluid before it returns to the blood stream.

The obvious sign that the lymphatic system is congested or not flowing effectively is edema or swelling, but there is often more subtle signs such as lowered immune function, chronic infection, chronic inflammation and reduced detoxification capacity.  Reduced immune reactivity is another sign of lymphatic congestion.  The immune system can become less reactive to microorganisms or toxins if the body is in acidosis, therefore when a person says that they never get sick, it is not necessarily a good sign.

Promoting lymphatic drainage is significant in addressing inflammation. The lymphatic system removes and filters inflammatory mediators.

The lymphatic system can become congested from food intolerances, immune challenges, heavy metals, environmental toxins, surgery, scars or structural imbalances.

Food intolerances can lead to the ineffective breakdown of foods where certain proteins get caught in the lymphatic fluid.  Immune challenges such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites whereby the lymphatic system is working to removing and eliminate these pathogens from circulation can lead to congestion of the lymphatic system.  Heavy metals and environmental toxins will congest the lymphatic system as they overload the detoxification pathways and this leads to chronic inflammation. Scars or surgery or structural imbalances can lead to physical barriers in effective drainage of the lymphatic system.

When trying to improve lymphatic circulation, it important to also understand flow pathways of this closed internal system.  We have a superficial lymphatic system that drains our head, neck, skin and breast tissue.  Then we have a deep lymphatic system that drains all of our deep vital organs.  The superficial lymphatic system drains into the deep lymphatic system, the fluid then filters through the liver and empties out the colon.

Most typical lymphatic massages only focus on the superficial lymphatic system and without properly stimulating the deep lymphatic system, there cannot be proper drainage of the superficial lymphatic system into the deep lymphatic system.  Also if the liver is congested or the colon is not moving effectively, then can back up the system and cause congestion of the lymphatic system.

In order to support proper lymphatic drainage, the deep lymphatic system needs to be stimulated, the liver to be supported and the bowels need to be moving effectively.

 

Dr. Roberts is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in the province of Alberta and clinic director at Advanced Naturopathic Medical Centre in Calgary.  She is a member of  the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA), the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM), the Biological Medicine Network, the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine.

Create an Unstoppable Morning Routine

A great morning routine is a sure way to win the day, as it sets the productive tone for the rest of your activities. Taking the “I’ll figure it out” or “I’ll get it done when I feel motivated” attitude will set you up for failure. Follow a daily routine and you will be amazed by how calm, organized and refreshed you are.

Drink 20 oz. of water

The importance of staying hydrated is greatly underestimated. Upon wakening, you haven’t had any water in 8-9 hours.  Drinking a lot of water in the morning will give you lasting energy throughout the day, as opposed to caffeine that has an inevitable crash. Added bonuses: Water fires up your metabolism, hydrates you, helps your body flush out toxins, gives your brain fuel, and can assist in weight loss.

Meditation/deep breathing

Taking a few minutes to quietly meditate and breathe in the morning is key. When you give time to yourself to be calm and centered, you will be amazed at how much more you can give to others.  Some people even choose to wake up at the crack of dawn to create this time for themselves. This gives them a calm and serene period before the hectic day arrives or the kids wake up. The best part: meditation or a few minutes to yourself breathing deeply is an incredibly productive use of your time. Studies have shown that meditation increases focus, memory, productivity and creativity – just to name a few. Everybody wins!

Do something you love

It is very important to include something you enjoy in your morning routine. It will allow you to have something to look forward to each morning and subsequently help you to stick to this routine. If you go to a 5 am spin class or run a few miles that is great, but make sure it is something you want to be doing. You shouldn’t be dreading getting out of bed.  Make sure your routine is fit to you and what makes you happy, not what you think you should be doing. Some examples of what you could do: watch cute puppy videos, look up a inspirational video on YouTube, open up your favorite book, look at a photo album, etc.

Get creative with this one, this time is for you and can be used however you like!

Write a journal entry

This journal could be on paperwork or on an app like OneNote, Evernote, or just Microsoft Word. Include prompts such as something you learned yesterday/this week, 5 things you’re grateful for, 5 things you appreciate yourself for and what to focus on for the day.

Look at your calendar to plan out the day

Before you get into the thick of it, it is important to plan so that you can win the day. By doing this in a quiet, centered space, you will be much more likely to get everything done that you want to that day instead of rushing trying to remember everything you have to do. Having everything written down and planned out will give you a peace of mind that it will all get done.

Kevin Kruse, the author of 15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management begins his morning with five minutes of stretches, while doing the following:

  • Mentally recitation of his personal mission statement
  • Listing three items of gratitude
  • Reminder of his three big goal areas (Health, Wealth, and Love)

The key here is to plan out what specific things you can do that to get closer to your larger goals. All you have to do is be a little bit better than yesterday. Planning out specific small steps to a larger long term goal is key, it makes the journey less daunting and more feasible.

You don’t need a lengthy meditation routine or a wide resource of expensive equipment, books, etc. Everything can be done with what you already have. Don’t get hung up on the details, this is an outcome oriented approach. You mainly need to get clear on your goals and intentions, then everything seems to work out much easier. You just need something that helps you set your mind on what you want to focus on for the day, and set your heart and mind in the right attitude.

Go out there and have an amazing day!
