Athlete’s Health Risks

When you drive your body to its limits… extra maintenance is required!!!

When we speak of groups that are at risk, we don’t always think of athletes… but we should as  being an athlete involves a nutritional risk that many do not think about.

The scientific explanation for this risk is perhaps best understood by thinking of a racing car compared to an ordinary commuter car (or an athlete compared to a sedentary person).

  1. A racing car deals with more stress and strain in one race than a commuter car does in many years of driving a few miles each day back and forth.
  2. A racing car uses up far more rubber, more gasoline, more oil and creates more heat and wear and tear on the engine than does considerable commuting in the family car.

Similarly:

  1. Athletes use up many times more minerals than do people who are sedentary.
    • An athlete sweats more in 5 years of athletic training and competition than couch potatoes do in 75 years of watching TV.
    • When a person sweats they are not just losing water… their sweat contains 60 essential minerals.
      • They are called essential minerals because if any of them are missing for any length of time, the result can be a degenerative disease, many of which are life threatening.
      • So, if athletes don’t get additional minerals and trace elements in their diets to make up for those which have been lost, their very lives can be at risk.
      • This is evidenced as numerous athletes each year, at very young ages, die of unexpected heart attacks. Wellness experts attribute this to loss of minerals needed for arterial integrity.
         
  2. Additionally, athletes use more energy and consume and metabolize more food. This means more free radicals are created. Free radicals cause damage to the body.
  3. Finally, athletes tear down their muscles and bones and tendons through the exertions they make. They need food nutrients to repair this damage.


The next thing that athletes need to do is increase their antioxidant intake.

Antioxidants combat free radicals which attack arterial walls and create scarring and thickened walls. Performance stress and metabolism of extra fuel as compared to sedentary people mean far greater free radical loads in athletes.

Note that the controversial writer of ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie’, veterinarian, Dr. Joel Wallach, blames sudden death in athletes on the lack of minerals, caused by sweating too many of the minerals from the body. He points to the addition of a tiny amount of minerals in the feed of animals as being the single most important thing anyone taking care of animals can do for animal health and draws the same corollary to humans.

 

Sudden Death of Athletes Occurs Too Often

Usually, the report we get on the news says that the athlete suffered from a cardiovascular abnormality.

Sudden death has been defined as “an abrupt unexpected death of cardiovascular cause, in which the loss of consciousness occurs within 1 to 12 hours of onset of symptoms” (1, 2). The majority of sudden deaths in athletes occur during or immediately after exercise (game, conditioning, training, etc). However, some deaths occur at rest or during sleep. Autopsy is very useful in making a definitive diagnostic determination of the cause of sudden death. Certain conditions (i.e., Long QT Syndrome, Brugada Syndrome) require detailed post-mortem biochemical and sometimes genetic studies.

Scientists in discussing how to prevent such sudden deaths among athletes say things like this:

Intense training and the strain of competition, which increase physiologic demands on the heart, produce alterations in electrolytes, blood volume and levels of hydration and together increase sympathetic tone and withdrawal of parasympathetic tone. Multiple interactions of those factors with the hypertrophied myocardium and the disarray of myocardial fibers act as triggers for potentially lethal ventricular arrhythmias . Also, increased myocardial mass and insufficient regional perfusion during high-intensity exercise cause myocardial ischemia, and over time, replacement fibrosis, both of which may act as independent triggers of arrhythmias. In fact, patients with HCM that survived a sudden death had a very high incidence of inducible ischemia on thallium stress-testing . In addition, lack of appropriate blood pressure and heart rate response to exercise may act as the initial event cascading into a hemodynamic collapse with loss of consciousness. Finally, partial obstruction present at rest may increase twice as high with intense physical exercise compared to levels at baseline , which can potentially result in myocardial ischemia, hemodynamic compromise and arrhythmias. Autopsy, histological and microscopic studies, and sometimes biochemical tests establish a post-mortem diagnosis of HCM.

The bottom line is that athletes need to increase their nutrition level considerably above ordinary people, and the won’t find a better source of nutrition than Melaleucas Cellwise and Vitality Multivitamin & Minerals both of which are powered by Oligo for maximum absorption

 

Starting a business all on your own from home can be a big learning curve where you are in unfamiliar territory.  It can be easy to spend huge amounts on a startup.  People who are prepared to risk their savings on expensive dreams are becoming rarer. However people still take their retirement payout and “invest” in a startup business.

Yes it can work for you but the present day statistics point to pause for thought before jumpino-sellingng into a traditional bricks and mortar business. The finance decisions are yours totally until you need to involve banks etc then it becomes an accountable burden,  so its worth being critical and careful.

The baby boomer generation is turning 60,  and the prospect of retirement is looking more frightening than ever before.

House prices are dropping, retirement plans dwindling, interest rates not paying enough on savings.  So retirees are now facing challenges they had never anticipated. Those challenges aside, retirement packs its own host of roadblocks for those who want to leave the workforce.

The cost of living is often more than most people assume, and few workers are able to retire with as much savings as they need in order to live comfortably.

“Everybody thinks your expenses go down when you retire,” says experienced home business owner Rita Canney. She says  “My expenses stayed pretty much the same!”

For the solution to those problems, many retirees, Rita included, are looking to the same source of residual income that Elizabeth Lindberg discovered nearly 25 years ago.

At the time a retired  66-year-old nurse  she’s now earned over  $1 million to date from her Melaleuca business. Elizabeth enrolled with Melaleuca in December 1985,  just a couple of months after the company opened its doors, a year after most people retire.

The company had only eight products, all based on Melaleuca oil. “The first appeal was the safety of the products,” says Elizabeth. “I was a nurse in a hospital and I saw so many children come in because of unsafe products. I had to let everyone know, especially parents with children, that they needed safe products in their homes.”

Elizabeth Linburgh

Over the years, she built her business to a high management level. “I know I couldn’t survive solely on my Social Security; so my Melaleuca check gives me a secure retirement,” she says. “I lived during the Great Depression, so I know about financial hardship. If people want financial security, Melaleuca, I truly believe, is one of the best sources.”

Elizabeth had her 94th birthday recently and now lives in a retirement home but is still being paid every month on efforts from years ago. I emailed her a birthday congratulations and she responded almost immediately. ” Thank you Colin for your kind words.Best wishes for success and isn’t it fun helping to clean up the world? Elizabeth

 

 

 

Unfortunately we are surrounded by toxins everywhere.  They silently poison our lives and are contributing to a multitude of modern day illnesses. Fear not they can be avoided!

Dr. Brogan boarded in Psychiatry/Psychosomatic Medicine/Reproductive Psychiatry and Integrative Holistic Medicine says :

Basic lifestyle interventions can facilitate the body’s powerful self-healing mechanisms to end depression: dietary modifications (more healthy fats and less sugar, dairy, and gluten); dietary modifications (more healthy fats and less sugar, dairy, and gluten); natural supplements like B vitamins and probiotics that don’t require a prescription and can even be delivered through certain foods; minimizing exposures to biology-disrupting toxicants like fluoride in tap water, chemicals in common drugs like Tylenol and statins, and fragrances in cosmetics; harnessing the power of sufficient sleep and physical movement; and behavioral techniques aimed at promoting the relaxation response. I’ve seen people  transformed in a little as 30 days. Dare to be one of them! ”

sustain1 Without Electrolytes Your Body Simply Cannot Function

When you add a sachet of Sustain to a 500ml bottle of water you make  a drink that includes Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium  and simply combines into an innovative 4-in- 1 complex that transforms ordinary water into serious performance hydration.

When is Pure Water Not Enough?

Normally there is nothing better than plenty of pure, natural water to give your body the hydration it needs. But water isn’t always able, under some conditions, to properly hydrate your body.

Perspiration Drains You of Electrolytes!

An hour of intense exercise can cause you to lose over 2 litres of more than just water. As you perspire you lose electrolytes as well.

The first warning signs may be only sapped energy or a mild headache, but if you lose too much sodium and other electrolytes and fail to replace them, you could eventually suffer a total collapse of bodily functions.  You may have watched the Brownlee Brothers ….

Drinking water alone cannot replace the electrolytes. In fact, if you have been perspiring, drinking water without electrolytes is potentially dangerous.

Why Water Alone is Not Enough.

In 1965 a University assistant football coach wanted to find a way to help his team perform better in the summer heat, so he asked the school’s medical research department for advice. He learned that players were sweating out more than water on the football field.

Their bodies were being drained of electrolytes as well – essential ionic minerals that water alone cannot provide.

Given that information, a new kind of beverage – Gatorade® – was born.

Athletes all over the world immediately began using sports drinks that were infused with electrolytes. Several brands are now marketed (like Lucozade Sport).

But our scientists, working with experts in the field of hydration and electrolyte balance, learned that the standard brands are lacking in several ways. Most only provide 2 electrolyte minerals, but research revealed the need for much more.sustain4

The popular formulas are also loaded with excessive calories from processed sugars, and often lack key vitamins that both improve endurance during exercise and provide faster recovery after exercise.

With the help of extensive research and some very bright people, the ultimate sports drink, Sustain™ Sport, was developed.

With a more advanced formula than Gatorade®, but with less sugar and fewer calories, Sustain™ Sport quickly became one of Melaleuca’s most popular products.

Symptoms of dehydration:

• Headache, fatigue, and loss of energy begin with 2% loss of water

• At 5% loss, you are in danger of heat exhaustion.

• At 10%, you risk heat stroke, total collapse … and, perhaps more.

Why Do You Need Electrolytes?sustain7

You may not know it but neurological system runs on electricity. That’s right, you are an electrical being. Electrolytes – ions of sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and others – generate electrical charges. From the firing of neurons in the brain to the coordination of muscles when you walk, your body runs on electricity.

Every movement and every message you make depends upon electrolytes – and when you run low on them, your body ceases to function properly.

Sodium is the electrolyte that makes your body salty – and if the blood’s sodium content is depleted by only 9%, you have entered a serious danger zone.

No marathon runner, for instance, has ever died from lack of water – yet many have suffered coma, seizures and even fatalities from low sodium, a condition known as hyponatremia.

Here is why:

Through sweat, urination and similar means, fluid is lost from the body, causing electrolytes to be flushed out with the liquid.

If water alone is used to re-hydrate, the body’s store of electrolytes is diluted even further – just as pouring fresh water into a glass of salt water causes the solution to become less salty.

Since electrolytes monitor the transportation of fluid in and out of cells, the process goes haywire: the lack of sodium allows too much water to be taken inside the cell walls, bringing about rapid cellular swelling.

For brain cells, especially, this can be a catastrophic event. Thankfully, most of us will never get so far off balance.

But fear of hyponatremia is why those who are suffering from dehydration are instructed by the doctor to be sure to drink fluids that contain electrolytes.

Therefore, Sustain™ Sport is a valuable addition to both the gym bag and the kitchen cabinet.sustain6

Whether dehydration is brought on by illness, exercise, or hard work, Sustain™ Sport helps to quickly return the internal balance of minerals and water back to a safe level.

Electrolytes aren’t all the body needs during strenuous activity, so Melaleuca’s scientists didn’t stop there.

Sustain™ Sport also contains:

• Antioxidants to help prevent sore muscles

• Vitamins to support cellular health

• Fructose-based carbohydrates for a steady supply of energy. Fructose gives honey its exquisite taste. That may be why the comment most heard about Sustain™ Sport is that it has just the right amount of sweetness.

It isn’t syrupy like the other brands. Melaleuca’s Sustain™ Sport also costs up to 35% less per serving than Gatorade®, and since it allows you to use your own container, rather than forcing you to use a new plastic bottle for every serving, the potential environmental impact is also substantial.

Compare the ingredients in Sustain™ Sport to the other major brands, factor in considerations about saving money and doing your part to help care for the environment, and you will witness a Melaleuca principle in action … exceptional products at reasonable price.

Push yourself, but protect yourself. Exert yourself, but energise yourself.

With 4 types of electrolytes, less sugar, fewer calories, and savings that affect both the wallet and the environment, Sustain™ Sport is not only the logical choice – it’s the one that works as hard as you do to make a difference that really counts.

Get the electrolytes you need use Sustain.

 

Why create an Ebook?

So you want to get yourself on the internet and what is it that you want  to tell others about?

There is a song by Basement Jaxx called “Do Your Thing” which pretty much sums up what building a web business or internet presence is about!

Be smart and give something away as a lead in to your idea.

Find your niche – something that is your passion and then build your e-plan around it.

One idea is to write a short E-book with advice and instructions about your thang.

If it was about a diet plan…  you could write down the foods / the cooking instructions / the times to eat – the foods to avoid etc etc and then put it in a short book that comes as a free download from your blog.. btw this is my blog you are reading now 🙂

Ok – So you don’t know how to create an ebook !

Here is a simple guide how to get your e-book set up so you can start telling folks about it  :
