Improving Mental & Emotional Health

     Mental and emotional health is just as important as physical health for a person.

In recent years medical researchers have determined that 75% of degenerative diseases can be prevented by a good exercise program, improved diet and reduced stress.

Benefits of Natural Health Care

            Natural Health Care is a wonderful science and art which goes back to the beginning of recorded history. In ancient Greek, Roman, Hebrew, Egyptian and Asian writings, there are many reference works on natural healing and herbal medicine. The first natural food supplements used in human history were medicinal
herbs. The Bible and many other historical documents recommend the use of herbs, a healthy diet, and fasting (cleansing) to help prevent and overcome disease. These written records go back to about 2,000 B.C. or 4,000 years ago!

            The famous saying, "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine your food, and there is a healing power inherent in nature," was quoted by Hippocrates - the father of 'modern medicine' and the father of 'medical literature' - in about 400 B.C.

Cardiovascular Training for Fitness, Health and Youthfulness - Part 3

            Last month our article ended with an interesting question. "Did you know that the heart muscle, which in the average adult weighs less than a pound, pumps about ___________ gallons a day, which is

about ________ pounds of blood a day?" The surprising answer is that the heart pumps about 2,000 gallons a day, which is about 20,000 pounds a day! This can vary up or down depending upon activity level. The human heart weighs 8-10 oz., and is the size of a human fist, and beats on average 100,000 times per day. The heart muscle is an amazing pump, and is designed to last a lifetime!

            Cardiovascular Training benefits all 12 Systems of the human body. To fully appreciate all of the health and fitness benefits, it is important to understand the 'Two Main Body Functions'.
