...And Which Verify The
Wysong Optimal Health ProgramT
LONGEVITY: Both men and women
live longer lives when they live near trees and grassy walking areas.
Scientists hypothesize that seniors who reside near these types of areas
are more likely to take walks outdoors, which may promote increased physical
activity. Furthermore, the longer the sun shines into the house, the longer
men live. (J Epidemiol Community Health, 2002; 56:913-8.)
have a higher risk of dying from osteoporosis than breast cancer. Women
have a 1 in 6 lifetime risk of hip fracture, versus a 1 in 9 chance of
developing breast cancer. The death rate associated with hip fracture
is even greater. Of women who endure a hip fracture, 50% can no longer
perform daily tasks without assistance and 20% need long-term care. Predictors
of fracture due to osteoporosis include low bone mineral density, prior
fragility fracture, age, family history of osteoporosis and history of
steroid or prednisone use. (Can Med J, November 12, 2002:167.) They are
all metabolically acidotic, as well (see Dissolving Bones).
• Relevant Wysong Products: Orgamin™ contains calcium and
other major minerals at optimal levels. Contifin™ and Glucosamine
Complex™ are nutritional supplements that work synergistically to
promote a healthy musculoskeletal system. Wysong WellSpring™ and
Alkinate™ effectively combat acidosis.
NEUROLOGICAL: People who eat
fish at least once a week are 34% less likely to develop dementia than
those who do not. The fatty acids in fish are thought to have a protective
effect on the brain, lessening inflammation in the brain and preserving
vascular health. (Br Med J, 2002; 325:932-3.)
• Relevant Wysong Products: E.F.A. with Fish Oil™ and Marine
Lipids™ are rich in unaltered essential fatty acids from cold-water
PEDIATRICS: Prescriptions for
psychiatric drugs have doubled, and in some cases tripled, among children
under the age of 20. Doctors are prescribing more drugs not only for attention
deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but also for more serious psychiatric
problems, such as depression, anxiety and psychotic disorders. However,
there is no increase in psychotic rates. Researchers therefore question
whether physicians are inappropriately prescribing these potent drugs
for behavioral problems, with possible risk to the children. (Arch Pediatr
Adolesc Med, 2003; 157:17-25.)
PREGNANCY: Women with bacterial
urinary tract infections during pregnancy are 70% less likely to have
a stillbirth than women who do not have the infection. Researchers suggest
that antibodies produced to fight the urinary tract infection might also
protect the fetus from infection – reinforcing the well-established
protective role microbes are known to play in the body. (New Scientist,
November 14, 2002.)
• Relevant Wysong Product: Probiosyn™ contains a spectrum
of concentrated probiotic ("good bacteria") cultures that work
with the body to enhance health.
STROKE: A new study has linked
periodontal disease to stroke. The risk of stroke is 50% higher for men
with 17 to 24 teeth and 74% higher for men with 11 to 16 teeth. One hypothesis
for this effect is that the chronic infection related to periodontal disease
and tooth loss causes inflammation that injures the arteries. (Stroke,
2003; 34(1).) Acidosis is present in basically all these people.
• Relevant Wysong Product: Probiodent™ is a tooth powder designed
with all natural food ingredients to effectively support the health of
the teeth and gums. For pets, Dentatreat™ is composed of a special
blend of dental-active natural cheeses, minerals, apple polyphenols, and
many other ingredients that help to maintain oral health.
HEALTHY LIFE LESSONS FROM DOGS™
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you’re scolded, don’t buy into the guilt
thing and pout, run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
