SHORTS
Current Research and Thoughts You Can Use for Health and Healing
...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.)


MUSCULOSKELETAL: Women 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 fish.

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 ecstasy.
When it’s in your best interest, practice obedience.
Take naps.
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.
Stop when you have had enough.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you’re not.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.



Best of health to you and yours from all of us here at Wysong.
