Watching out for Our Health

I have been reading up on a lot of different health topics recently. I had a scare in my family when my brother had chest pains, and we were all relieved to find out it was just indigestion. It scared me enough though to want to get healthier and help my family get the same way too. I have never had any health issues myself, but I learned a good bit from sites like That is where I learned about Coenzyme Q10, which is something that is naturally found in our bodies.

It is in every single cell in a body, and these cells use the CoQ10 to do just about anything and everything for the body. What I was mostly interested in though was the fact that it helps to protect the heart. » Read more: Watching out for Our Health

Baby Boomers Play An Important Role In The Growth Of Health and Wellness Industry

A person born between 1946 and 1964 is commonly known as a “Baby Boomer”. They were born post World War II and many countries experienced an unusual spike in birth rates, a phenomenon commonly known as the baby boom. These people are in their forties or older and most of them are in their prime in earning power. Although they consist of about one-third of the world’s population, they account for about two-thirds of the sales. Most of them are expected to live into their eighties. Hence they are a significant group of people for the right target markets.

So, what do Baby Boomers want?

Baby Boomers want to feel young, stay fit and be active. They want to keep a youthful appearance. In other words, they don’t like to look ( omit “growing”) old. Despite their effort, they can’t keep away from degenerative diseases which are creeping into their bodies. They look for smart solutions to their health and ageing problems.

A growing number of baby boomers are using nutritional supplements to maintain optimal health and combat rapid ageing. They are using these supplements to prevent or reverse the degenerative diseases that plagued their parents.

Baby Boomers’ high disposable income combined with their growing concerns about health are the foundation for the exponential growth of the Health and Wellness Industry.

Paul Zane Pilzer who is the world renowned trend forecaster, best-selling author, entrepreneur and economic advisor to past US Presidents said this:

“When I look forward to the year 2010, I see a clear one-trillion, dollar (US) business just in the growth of existing products and services in the wellness industry and that doesn’t include new products and services that are currently in the laboratory and coming down the pike.”

Today, more and more evidence from the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) influences many people to take their health into their own hands by using nutritional supplements based on scientific research.

In the Benefits of Nutritional Supplements, The Council for Responsible Nutrition (based in Washington, D.C.) reviewed over a decade’s worth of scientific research measuring the health benefits of multivitamins and other nutritional supplements.

They found that nutritional supplements can promote health and help prevent disease among the baby boomers.

Annette Dickinson, PhD and author of the report, said,

“The critical mass of science now building around the material impact of supplementation on adults in mid-life is extremely positive.

The data underscores the opportunity baby boomers have to significantly improve both their short and long-term health outlook with very simple lifestyle changes. Like not smoking and getting regular exercise, supplement use is now being shown to have a dramatic, positive effect on health”

Timing of Health and Wellness Market:

The Health and Wellness Industry is the largest group in the Direct Marketing Association. Many companies aim to be listed on the Stock Exchange in order to obtain public funds for the growth of their businesses. This industry will experience substantial growth in the next few decades.

Do you want to be one of the smart people who recognize the trend and use it to start their own home based businesses? If you have not owned a home based business, this may open up an opportunity for you that offers you the benefits that include the following:

1 Financial Freedom

It offers you another stream of income flowing into your life on an ongoing basis so that you can fulfil your desires such as having a new home or car, holidays and travel, children’s education, caring for aged parents, quality retirement, etc.

2 Time Freedom

When you have a large passive income, you can decide how much time to spend as you wish instead of working at a job or running a business from dawn till dusk for the best years of your life.

3 Good Health – Being in the business, you also take the products for you walk the talk. That gives you vitality, good health and well-being.

The Wealth and Health Crisis

Many people are ill-prepared for retirement. Most underestimate the amount of savings they require to live comfortably in their golden years. As life expectancies continue to improve, and costs continue to rise, there is a real concern that the superannuation nest-egg alone will not be sufficient for most, in their old age, to maintain the lifestyle they are accustomed to. Health bills could consist of a substantial portion to your overall expenses.

There is a saying that by the time you can have your superannuation fund, its purchasing power has been reduced by inflation to about 20% of what you can buy today.

The solution is not to save more (although that’s a good piece of advice), but to earn multiple streams of income.

Leverage Your Income There are many ways to earn money. Straight salary is linear income. It does not matter whether you are a doctor, dentist, lawyer, accountant, engineer, teacher, or whatever you get paid by the hour for only when you work. No work, no pay.

Worse still, nowadays, more and more high paying jobs will be performance-based. This means bonus which consists of a fair portion of the total remuneration is only payable if what you agreed to deliver has been delivered on time, not how many hours you spend on the job. As a result, long hours and stress are quite common.

Professionals and employees trade their own time and effort for money. But there is a limit to how much wealth one can accumulate this way.

The best way is to earn residual income – income that keeps flowing to you even when you are not working like owning investment properties in real estate or shares, copyrights created by authors, pop artists and successful network marketers.

Most multi-millionaires use leveraging in one form or another to generate wealth. They understand that the combined time and effort of many people always offer a much bigger income potential than what one can earn alone. Network Marketing is one of these kinds.

There is a saying, “Do not depend on just one main source of income for when that stream of income dries up, you are in strife. Instead it is prudent to have multiple streams of income which will reduce your risk of exposure to unwanted events and will still able to take care of your family and yourself well.”

Create A Residual Income Stream Workers get paid each hour, each fortnight, or each month that they provide a service.

Smart people continue to earn into the future, based in part on initial efforts. This residual value gives them not only the money, but the time freedom to enjoy it too. A type of business is a home business in Network Marketing which could meet this criterion

Despite prejudices and misinformation, the network marketing industry has grown to over USD 100 billion in revenue. The ageing of baby boomers; Generation X ( in the thirties of age) and Generation Y (from 18 to thirty of age) who place more emphasis on balanced lifestyle/family than that of their parents will lead to a boom in the health and wellness industry.

Advancements In Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Sciences

Human civilization the most developed civilization on earth and it is due to medicine and pharmaceutical manufacturing sciences. Prehistoric man used herbs and plants around him to treat diseases and injuries. From that period pharmacy has greatly developed.

Pharmacy and pharmaceutical developing dates back to 6th century B. C. Sumerians used tablets for curing diseases during 6th century B. C. Use of a medicine called ARIANA is mentioned in Sushruta Samhita, a literature in Indian Ayurveda. Pharmaceutical works can be found in many ancient civilizations. Pharmaceutical manufacturing techniques can be found on Egyptian papyrus scrolls around 15th -16th century B. C. Use of pharmaceutical drugs can be found in Chinese ancient book Shennong Bencao Jing during reign of Han dynasty in 1st century A. D.

Greek pharmacist Pedanius Dioscoridens wrote a book called De Materia Medica related to various pharmaceutical products and their manufacturing. During 7th-9th century A. D., pharmacists and pharmacy stores emerged in Japan and middle-eastern countries. As pharmacy is combined application of chemistry and biology, with development of biology and chemistry, pharmacy was developed in middle-east.

Zakaria Rhazes, Zahrawi, Sabur Ibn Sahl around 865-1013 A. D gave details of use of various medicines. During 973-1050 A. D. Al Biruni wrote on pharmaceutical manufacturing sciences in his book called Kitab-Al-Saydalah, in which he gave good description of properties of different drugs. Al Muwaffaq wrote how oxides and silicic acid can be used in treatment of diseases. Also he worked on toxic compounds like copper compounds during 10th century A. D.

Europeans developed pharmacy shops around 12th century. The oldest working pharmacy store is in Tries, Germany. It was opened in 1241. European cities like Croatia opened pharmacies in 1317 and are still working. As people came to know about diseases like rabies, smallpox, etc., people started working on drugs or vaccines against such diseases. Edward Jenner pioneered the field of vaccination. He created small pox vaccine using his discovery of cow pox virus providing immunity against small pox virus.

With the development in technology in 20th century, drugs were produced on large scale. In decade of 1950 drugs were manufactured considering human anatomy. Drugs like valium, paracetamol, etc. Were manufactured in 1960. During 1980s, many new pharmaceutical manufacturing companies came together forming big pharmaceutical companies.

Lipitor, a cholesterol pill produced by Pfizer is best selling drug today. Also drugs like heartburn pill called Astra-Zeneca and Asthma inhaler called Advair are also sold in great numbers. Johnson and Johnson, glaxo smith Kline, Bayer, cipla, etc. Are leading pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Safety and reliability can be seen in today’s drugs. Drugs are tested in laboratories and from the conclusions, amount of dose, expiry date and age limit is decided. Todays pharmaceutical manufacturing companies work on safety rules and terms and conditions accepted universally. Different types of drugs like oral tablets, capsules, syrups or injectables are available.

Pharmaceutical sciences will be of great importance in future. Even today there is no cure on diseases like AIDS and cancer. Many medicines have side effects. New diseases like swine flu and bird flu are emerging. Hence, it is essential to develop pharmaceutical manufacturing sciences further.

Is The Science Of Medicine In The US Pure Science Or Merely Drug Company Propaganda?

In the United States so-called science in regard to medicine is nothing more than a propaganda machine designed to sell more of big drug company’s products. The clinical trials which the FDA uses to make decisions about drug approvals are almost completely conducted by the drug company selling the product. Big pharmaceutical companies hire (scientists?) to design and implement studies which will produce the exact result that the drug company needs to sell their product. If a scientist has too much integrity to use fraud and deception to manipulate testing they are quickly fired and sometimes even blackballed from the drug industry altogether.

It is common practice in the U.S. to manipulate drug tests in order to receive a favorable result (for drug company’s products) which then makes it possible to champion the most ludicrous claims imaginable by these poison pushers. They then pick the exact studies which favor the particular drug they want to sell (discarding that which is not favorable) and these are sent over to the FDA for approval. The FDA approves countless drugs based on this farce.

This Same Bad Science Is Used To Discredit Natural Cures

The science falsely so-called which is used to promote synthetic chemicals that are proven dangerous and for the most part absolutely ineffective is also used to discredit vitamins, nutrition, and natural medicine as cures for disease. If nutrition, supplements, herbal treatments, exercise, pure water, and common sense were able to be patented you can bet your last dollar that drug companies would be touting their benefits. As of this writing, however, they still can’t find a way to make money on natural remedies, so they will continue to be shunned by the medical community, the FDA, and mainstream media, in favor of synthetic drugs made in a laboratory.

Most of the science in relation to food, medicine, and the environment in the United States is nothing more than a propaganda machine for big business. Scientists in these areas are more like magicians who through the use of fancy slight of hand tactics provide the illusion that a product sold by the corporation is actually good or even a miracle product. This so-called science has no concern whatsoever for your health or the environment but only for the bottom line of the corporation who has paid them handsomely to produce favorable results.

Why Has A Cure For Cancer Not Been Found?

Thousands and thousands of people have been working in the field of cancer research for decades in the “search for the cure.” What have these many years and multiplied billions of dollars dumped into this “search” provided cancer patients? Absolutely nothing! There is no cure now and there is no cure on the horizon. It is a multi-billion dollar money making machine that is utterly corrupted by greed. There will never be a cure for cancer from this scientific community because cancer is very big business. There is big money in treating cancer and managing it but the money supply would dry up quickly if a cure were ever found. It would put too many folks out of business so do not look for a cure any time soon or even in your lifetime.

That’s why the FDA outlaws any claims of healing through nutrition, (raw fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds) vitamin supplements, herbs, and lifestyle changes such as exercise, while championing the benefits of statin drugs promoted by the drug industry and at the same time downplaying the horrible side effects to include the worst side effect of all — DEATH. They will never tell you that natural remedies actually prevent cancer in the first place and often cure cancer in the sufferer because these natural remedies are inexpensive and can be used by all.

It is all too clear when unbiased facts are weighed in the balances that the so-called science of today is nothing more than the whore of big industry. This science is dedicated to conning people out of their hard earned paychecks and in this game cures do not pay the piper. In this high stakes game a cure is a bad thing. If the tremendous amount of money and resources dumped into the cure for diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and osteoporosis (just to name a few) have never produced a cure than we either have the stupidest scientists on planet earth, or they have an agenda to keep drug companies churning out one new statin drug after another which cannot cure any disease but merely manage it. This science falsely so-called does not spend any of our hard earned money researching the cause of the disease but only the disease itself. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that if you know what causes something you can then eliminate it.

A Simple Cure For Cancer

One of the best cures for cancer according to much unbiased research is the sun. Yes, the sun! Vitamin D from the sun or from good supplements has been shown to eliminate the risk of cancer in up to 75 percent of the population. Since the sun cannot be patented, this true science about the miracle of vitamin D is widely suppressed. Tests are even manipulated to not only downplay the roll of vitamin D but to also scare us to death so that if we ever do get out in the fresh air and sunshine we must be covered from head to toe in expensive sunscreen. In addition the ridiculously low levels of vitamin D that the medical community touts as reasonable and safe is a joke. That is why over 80 percent of the population is suffering from a lack of vitamin D which is also why the above named diseases are running rampant in the United States.

Science Needs To Step Away From Big Industry And Seek True Answers

The scientific community will never provide a cure for anything as long as they are on the payroll of big industry. In this writer’s opinion true science should seek knowledge about the wonders of the universe apart from the influence of big business or politics. It is my personal opinion that the only true function of a human scientist is to discover how God made it and what are it’s true properties. This is pure science and has no agendas except the discovering of truth. Pure science is an impossibility, however, when the scientific community in this country are merely the corporate whores of big business who manipulate testing in favor of their pimps.

Until there is a major reform as to how science is conducted in America, and even it’s reason for being, we will continue to suffer the highest disease rates of any developed country in the world and these diseases will continue to ravage our society to the bankrupting of this great land which many including myself proudly call home. May this scenario which is well on it’s way never be brought to fruition!

Usana Health Sciences Review – Why Join Dr. Myron Wentz?

This article provides a review of USANA Health Sciences, which is a network marketing company in Salt Lake City, Utah. USANA manufactures various products for weight control, personal care, and nutritional supplementation at its home office in Salt Lake City, Utah. USANA has distributors in fourteen markets: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Mexico, Malaysia, Philippines, and the United States. Many people are considering to join USANA about the earth and many thousands have already joined either with a home business,as distributors or as customers.

The company’s four product brands are: USANA Nutritionals, USANA Foods, Sense Beautiful Science, and Rev3 Energy Drink. The name USANA is coined from Greek and Latin words meaning “true health.”

Dr. Myron Wentz, who founded USANA, received a Ph.D. from the University of Utah in the field of microbiology with specialization in immunology. He is renowned in the scientific community, having received the Albert Einstein award in 2007, for his contribution to life sciences.

Preceding USANA, Dr. Wentz founded Gull Laoratories in 1974. Gull Laboratories is the world leader in diagnostic test kits. Gull has over 35 patents today and many of its kits are used in hospitals and clinics around the world. The best known kit, which put USANA on the map, is for the Epstein-Barr virus, or mononucleus. Gull Labs today creates billions of human cells and sustains them with nutritional formulations developed by Dr. Wentz.

Dr. Wentz’s intention statement is: “I dream of a world free from pain and suffering. I dream of a world free from disease. The USANA family will be the healthiest family on earth…” Having lost his father to a heart attack at age 17 and his mother to breast cancer while at Gull Labs, he wanted to be able to make a difference in preventing disease vs. merely diagnostics. When his own health started to decline, his search for a nutritional product for himself resulted in the conclusion that a scientifically-based, effective formulation wasn’t offered on the market. In fact, he understood that if existing product formulations were used with cell cultures in his lab, the cells would go dead within a week.

USANA employs over 900 people worldwide, including about 630 people at the corporate offices in Utah. The sales for the year 2008 were around $429 million.

The USANA Nutritionals were named the editor’s choice when compared to 1500 other products in the NutriSearch Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements and have achieved best of state awards in Utah for several years in both the nutritional (Best Dietary Supplement 2008, 2007, 2006, 2004, 2003) and personal care categories (Best Personal Care Products in 2008, 2007).

USANA is the official health supplement supplier of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour, US Speedskating Team, Speed Skating Canada, Biathlon Canada, Cross Country Canada, USA Luge, and USA Bobsled Team Radcliff.

USANA’s stock symbol on the NASDAQ is USNA. The company was in the top 20 Forbes’ 200 Best Small Companies list for 2006, 2005, 2004 and in the Business Week 100 Hot Growth Companies list in 2004 and 2003.

USANA and Dr. Wentz chose a direct sale, or network marketing approach from the company’s inception. This method was chosen in order to offer a better price to consumers and included a lofty goal of “legitimizing” the MLM business. At the latest 2009 International Convention in Salt Lake City, CNN Host Larry King made a surprise appearance. He interviewed MLM industry expert Tim Sales about the network marketing industry’s legitimacy, effectiveness for people starting a home business, and correlation to various other current events including the Bernie Madoff scam. Larry King was himself a victim of this con and appeared “legitimately” amazed to ascertain that MLM is, in fact, a very legitimate business model.

The USANA products have unquestionably been valuable to thousands of clients. My own personal physical condition has benefited greatly in several areas, including less lower back pain and an improved immune system (virtually no flu or colds since starting to use the products in 2002).

The corporation has acknowledged over 150 million-dollar earners presently. The associate payout is approximately 53% of net earnings, which is the highest of any public network marketing company. The company has earned the Distributor’s Choice award from each year consecutively for the last 10 years.

Network marketing is a viable business model and USANA Health Sciences would be an excellent company to consider for anyone starting a home business venture. Initial cost is low, at present $29.95 for a distributor kit, and additional tools are readily available for worldwide marketing this business. The worst possible outcome would be for an individual to be unsuccessful at customer acquisition and sales, yet to still gain an improved health picture in the process.
