WELCOME MESSAGE

S “A growing body of research shows that pesticides and other contaminants are more prevalent in the foods we eat, in our bodies, and in the environment than we thought.” – Consumer Reports (Feb. 2006)

pring time is around the corner and there is something about it that just brings a newness and excitement about life. Perhaps it is the freshness of it all after the long and dreary winter season or perhaps it is the kind of renewal of life with each tree or plant the begins to take bloom. Maybe for a few special folks, it is the chance to find the love that they most desired. Whatever the reason, let’s just be happy that another spring upon us and we can enjoy it. In the quote I selected for this issue, we see the issue of pollution and contamination of our environment being brought to the forefront. Over the decades since the 1900s there have been so many chemicals released into our environment. In addition, our food and water supplies have become poorer in quality. Studies have shown that our foods have lost about 50% of their nutrient value as compared with fruits and veggies from 100 years ago. This issue of the magazine is all about supplements. Even if one is eating the perfect diet, the need for supplements still exists because of the lower nutrient content of most of our foods. In this issue, we have our contributors weighing in on the topic and offering their insights. This issue is not meant to be the final authority on the topic of supplements but it will give you enough information to begin to critically look at the topic yourself. An informed, educated, and health-minded individual can best make the right kind of choices regarding their responsibility for their personal health. The ultimate understanding that you should carry away from this issue is that supplements are not just an afterthought but a very real part of an overall health and wellness strategy. There are good supplements and there are bad ones. There are whole-food based supplements and there are synthetic ones. There are supplements that reflect quality in the price and there are the cheap ones. Whichever supplement you choose, you will ultimately have to live with the outcome of your choice. You are in the driver seat. Please share this magazine with others who may benefit from a better understanding of supplements. Help us change the world one person at a time through knowledge and empowerment. Your small act of sharing this magazine can have a positive ripple effect that you can’t conceive. Enjoy the magazine! Peace and be well.

Supplements Exposed: The disparity between whole food and synthetic supplements Vitamins are micro-nutrients essential to normal human metabolism. Every vitamin performs specific functions in the body and even at slightly diminished capacities can potentially wreak havoc. Despite overwhelming research, many scientists still fail to understand the workings of nutrients. This article takes a hard look at the potential dangers of synthetic supplements and long term ramifications to the health of the body.

Understanding Your Supplements I am not a big supplement user (or prescribAnd Where To Buy Them er) although there are a few things I take dai-

ly for preventative reasons but when I foresee stressful events presenting themselves, I usually up with the intake. Traveling, going back to school after a holiday or a holiday in general, are the usually times I begin to re evaluate what we are all doing and taking because I don’t really want to get sick or take care of anyone who might be. This article will explore some of the issues around how to select quality supplements and the three you should have.

Everyone seems to being taking supplements these days. We are inundated with ads in health magazines and television shows like Dr.Oz that suggest we aren’t looking after our health to the fullest if we aren’t on certain supplements. But with so many supplements out there, how are you to know which ones would be best for you and which ones really are ‘essential’? This article will help you identify the top three we believe are best for everyone. 4

Supplementing Your Enzymes For Optimal Health To understand the concept of enzymes, you need to take into consideration the life-force of an organism. The energy released as a result of enzymes is separate and distinct from the caloric energy released when food is digested. Whether a person is hungry or full, enzyme activity is always taking place within the body on a cellular level. We’ll briefly explore the importance of enzymes in this article.

A Nurse Health Coach’s Birdseye View Of Nutritional Supplements Being a nurse for over twenty years has given me a little advantage when it comes to understanding health and wellness issues. My training and experience in health, disease, and even death has caused me to reflect often on why some people get into a health crisis, while others do not. What causes some people to get heart disease, cancer and diabetes while others don’t? This article reveals a candid expression of my personal insights and experience into the topic of supplements.

But as long as the root cause is not treated, the body cannot fully recover. Naturally occurring vitamins are derived solely from food and medicinal sources such as fruits, vegetables and botanicals. We find synthetic vitamins fortified into most foods, including breads, cereals, pastas, dairy, beverages and sweets. Our bodies have the inherent ability to perceive the difference between a natural, whole food vitamin and a synthetic supplement, releasing cells to fight the invasion, while distracting and diverting the body’s natural process of eliminating viruses, bacteria, disease and mutant cells like those associated with cancer. What’s in a vitamin? Most chemists define a vitamin as any isolated part of a nutrient. They do not distinguish a natural from a synthetic vitamin because the molecular structure appears similar. Chemists fail to accurately compare synthetics 10

to natural supplements by overlooking four main elements: hormones, oxygen content, phytochemical levels and enzymes. All these work synergistically to keep the cells invigorated and so become just as important as the vitamins and minerals themselves. Synthetic vitamins are pure chemical compounds not created by nature. This controversy has been looming between natural and synthetic vitamins for nearly 80 years. One ongoing experiment we’ve been conducting over the last two decades at Hippocrates indicates that the blood of over 11,000 guests taking synthetic supplements show little to no absorption or retention of the synthetic vitamins. The cells of these guests repeatedly show serious vitamin and nutrient deficiency. Yet by the end of a three-week stay on the Life Change Program participants make dramatic improvements. The program consists of a strictly organic and raw whole-foods diet, including natural vitamins made from whole foods. What’s in a label? Vitamins and supplements can contain synthetic or

naturally occurring ingredients, yet practically every supplement on the market today is synthetic. Often times a product may begin with a natural base, but the odds are high that synthetic nutrients are added. The label often omits the combination of ingredients, so while we may be reading labels to find the highest quality products, we can easily be swayed by misleading and dishonest labeling information.

With 20th century modernization came the widespread use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, additives, preservatives and other contaminants. Most of us today suffer from dietary deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the mineraldepleted soils are brought into proper balance. Foods like fruits, vegetables and grains growing on millions of acres of land no longer contain enough specific kinds of minerals, resulting in widespread nutritional deficiency, no matter how much of them we eat. A shortage of nutrients in both the growing and processing of food continues to spike, barely supplying minimum daily requirements. Even those diligently eating a diet of fruits and vegetables, food alone cannot sufficiently provide the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain a healthy and balanced life. Our culture is stuffed with myths, misinformation and misconceptions about the role of nutrition and supplementation in our lives. The essential ingredient for good health is education. A compromised digestive system absorbs fewer nutrients and creates the conditions for obesity and other imbalances. Quality foods enhance health, strengthen immunity and create the best conditions for overall wellbeing.

Combined with natural and high quality supplementation, robust health can be regained and maintained. Hippocrates, the fifth century B.C.

Growing Your Food Improving Your Health! The quality of our food is not the same now as it was 100 years ago. Vitamins and minerals have slowly been depleted from the soil.

t is easy to feel a little overwhelmed when you begin your health journey. Sometimes it seems that the more you read and study, the more confused you become about what you need to be healthy. There are so many things to learn, and so many things to un-learn too! Once you jump in with both feet, you soon realize that this journey to a healthier life isn’t just about the food. There are so many other aspects to a healthy life, including emotional and spiritual health too. Although the food you eat is not the only factor determining your health, you still must take into consideration the quality of the food you are eating. Of course eating mostly raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds play a huge role in determining the quality of your health, and making sure that these foods are organic is of high importance. But what happens when you are not able to receive vital nutrients from these raw foods? What if you are lacking important nutrients and you can’t seem to get them through any of the foods you are eating? This is where incorporating supplements into your diet plays a major role in determining how successful your health journey becomes. The quality of our food is not the same now as it was 100 years ago. Vitamins and minerals have slowly been depleted from the soil. An article in the February 2009 issue of Time Magazine stated that today’s supermarket veg-

etables are almost 40% lower in minerals than those grown fifty years ago because of soil depletion and harvesting methods. There are more than 70 trace minerals necessary to produce healthy, nutrient-rich crops, yet most current farming methods routinely put back only three to five of them. No wonder our food is becoming less and less nutritious and farmers are forced to apply toxic pesticides to their weak plants to keep insects away so that they can get their crops to the market. It’s a vicious cycle, and we are left with unhealthy plants and depleted soil. One of the best ways to guarantee that the

One of the best ways to guarantee that the food you are eating contains high-quality vitamins and minerals is to grow it yourself, using nutrient rich soil. food you are eating contains high-quality vitamins and minerals is to grow it yourself, using nutrient rich soil. But that is not all! You must begin to incorporate composting methods to help the soil return to its once fertile state after years of abuse and mistreatment. Composting is the decomposition of plant remains and other onceliving materials. It is the best way to recycle your yard and kitchen waste, and it plays a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage sent to landfills. Adding the compost back into the garden soil will help enrich and condition the soil and it also works as a natural pesticide. There are many resources and handbooks available to help you get started recycling your kitchen waste. Composting is not only easy; it is fun! Now you don’t need a lot of space to start your own garden. Square foot gardening is a technique used to help maximize garden space.

Square foot gardening is usually done in a small, clearly defined area, using closely planted raised beds with a strong focus on composting. There are many resources online that will show you how to set up a garden bed using a square foot gardening technique to help you utilize your garden area. By growing your own food, you are able to add compost and other nutrient-rich soil to the garden beds, which will then provide you with living foods that are filled with vitamins and minerals. You don’t even need a garden to start growing your own food! You can easily start growing sprouts and wheatgrass inside your own home. Sprouts are one of the most complete and nutritional foods that exist. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes. Some sprouts, like lentils, can be sprouted in jars and ready to eat within 2-3 days. It may seem like a lot of work at first, but by growing your own food, you are taking a step toward control of your health and your life! I understand that not everyone has the time or room necessary to start growing your own food.

tain these vital nutrients and keep you moving on your health journey. Even if you are growing your food, you may still need to add a few supplements into your diet because some vitamins and minerals are not obtainable by eating a strictly vegan diet. Everyone’s body chemistry and make-up is different so not everyone needs the same supplements. There are a few supplements that I recommend to everyone, including vitamin D, vitamin B-12, probiotics and enzymes. These supplements are beneficial to everyone, but you might need to take a common blood test to help determine if there are any other areas you might be lacking, and then you can take the steps necessary to improve. Vitamin D, the essential nutrient obtained from sunlight, is known for its many wonderful benefits, including protection from multiple sclerosis, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. There are many different causes for a vitamin D deficiency, especially if you are on a vegetarian diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, cheese, and beef liver. If you are eating a plant-based diet, then supplementing with vitamin D could be beneficial for you. Vitamin B-12 is another vitamin Volume 2 Issue 3 |

These supplements are beneficial to everyone, but you might need to take a common blood test to help determine if there are any other areas you might be lacking that is not found in any plant food. It is, however, abundant in many meats and fish, and in smaller amounts in milk and eggs. This makes it difficult for people following a strict vegetarian diet to get the necessary amount of vitamin B-12. Adding a vitamin B-12 supplement to your regime will ensure that you are receiving enough of this vitamin, and there is no risk of taking too much vitamin B-12 because it has a low potential for toxicity. Probiotics help maintain the natural flora in the intestines, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria that cause digestive stress, improve digestion of food and absorption of vitamins, stimulate the immune system, and help make vitamins needed by the body. Enzymes are an important supplement because the body depends upon enzymes to help purify the blood, break down fats, cleanse the colon, maintain proper cholesterol levels and maintain peak energy levels.

tionally incomplete. There are also many different vita-mineral greens on the market now, and these green powders are a simple and easy way to add more vitamins and minerals into your diet. It’s easy to add a scoop to smoothies or nut milks, and even water. I recommend monitoring your blood work on a regular basis to determine if you have any deficiencies, and until then, start adding these recommended supplements to your diet. Even if you are able to grow your own food, it is still important to monitor your blood work to make sure you are receiving everything you need, and incorporating the appropriate supplements is extremely important and beneficial.

Inspiration: Dana Jennings

T

his month, our featured inspirational story is New York Times journalist, Dana Jennings. His story was brought to my attention recently and I wanted to highlight him because he is writing about his life in a very open way. He writes about things that others would cringe about admitting in public. He writes about how nurses have influenced his medical life very positively. His demonstrates that even an ordinary person who is on the regular path of healthcare (vs wellness) can still have a meaningful life. Also, his openness about his afflictions can help others to see the results of the choices he’s made. Dana is a 52 year old man who has been hospitalized six times in his life. At age 12, he was in hospital for a benign tumour on his right knee. This was his first experience with nurses. The nurse shaved his leg in preparation for surgery and he didn’t even realize until she was done. It takes a skilled nurse to make a 12 year old patient feel so at ease that she can complete her task without him being anxious or scared. His next run in with nurses was in 1984. During his 6 week period, he realized that when nurses get to like you they can be quite frank. He was suffering from heavy rectal bleeding due to his ulcerative colitis (Crohns disease). One such nurse told him that she’d “never seen anyone alive with haemoglobin Volume 2 Issue 3 |

that low.” He relates that his wife almost fainted at those words. Eventually, he had the offending section of his colon removed. His most recent interaction with nurses came as a result of aggressive stage 3 prostate cancer. He again saw that nurses are professionals who demonstrate the caring and compassionate site of medicine. He generalises that: Nurses are warm, whereas doctors are cool. Nurses act like real people; doctors often act like aristocrats. Nurses look you in the eye; doctors stare slightly above and to the right of your shoulder. His battle with erectile dysfunction is just one of the many after effects of his choice

Prostate cancer and its treatment strike men where they live, often causing impotence and incontinence. (My bladder control gradually returned. But I can still be caught off guard by the stray sneaky sneeze.) of treatment. The experience has certainly made a positive impact on him as he beautifully writes about the over sexualized culture we live in. He tells how he sees true love in his wife, Deb, who has been by his side throughout the ordeal. He writes about love and affection being more than just the act of intercourse. In a very real sense, his experience has opened up a broader world of

39


intimacy and love with his wife and a truly enlightened understanding of life. Looking at his life, and knowing my focus on holistic health and wellness, you might be inclined to think that I should not have selected him as an inspiration. But I’ll put to you that you would be mistaken. Dana, through his limited knowledge of holistic health, has made the best choices he could based on his knowledge of conventional medicine. And even though his choices have left him with missing pieces, he makes the best of it. He even writes about his experience so that others can learn from his choices. This is what makes his character admirable and why he can be an inspiration. Remember, taking care of your health does not need to be a reactive endeavour. It must be proactive if you are to live a life of health and joy. Exercise (being proactive) is what makes muscles grow not sitting around and waiting (being reactive). Repeated training in sports (being proactive) will allow the competitor to win not waiting for skill (being reactive). With cancer, diabetes, and most other lifestyle diseases being proactive by taking care of your health is the best way to give yourself the best chances at a life worth living. Learn from Dana’s choices and be sure you choose well.

March Humour Hospital regulations require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. One time a student nurse found an elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, insisted he didn't need any help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let the student nurse wheel him to the elevator. On the way down she asked him if his wife was meeting him. "I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown."

It is natural that the use of fresh raw vegetable and fruit juices should furnish the cells and tissues of the body with the finest kind quality of nourishment in the form of ultra-microscopic minerals replete with enzymes. The body cells use these live organic minerals avidly. The processes of replenishment and regeneration by means of such nourishment enables the body to avoid and overcome the afflictions caused by the lack of such nourishment that has plagued generation after generation, shortening man's lifespan.
