The Hormone Nightmare in Children

I am observing boys and girls 8-10 years old with underarm hair, breast development and mood swings like a hurricane.

Sound familiar?

Childhood hormonal imbalance is now commonplace, and very serious for the children and those around them. The cause? Junk food and sodas (all from GMO’s that mimic hormones!), hamburgers, fried chicken and pizzas are hormonal ticking bombs, due to the growth hormones being used by producers. Add to that contributors from our water, air, and mass produced plastics, and the stage is set for your child’s hormones to go crazy!

What can you do?

Be diligent in your efforts to remove “empty” foods from your child’s life. When cooking your own meals, limit meat and ban ALL dairy products – they are meant to pack pounds on a baby cow, not a human being. Switch to organic almond milk or coconut milk (my favorite), or the new flax seed milk. If you consume meat, make it organic, grass-fed beef or wild-caught salmon. Introduce more plant-strong meals with salads, grains and homemade soups.

Finally, add supplements that will assist in keeping their hormones balanced and give them the additional nutrition their growing bodies need.

Hormones are NOT just for Moms and Dads

Healthy FamilyWhile most of us think about the raging hormones of teen-aged boys and girls, hormones are present in a child’s body from birth.

When these hormones become out of balance is when we start to see young children having issues with excessive weight gain like the increasingly present “tire” around the middle of our youth’s waists, underarm hair growth, and developing breasts.

Heading into their teens these problems persist and then can be compounded further with severe mood swings, even to the point of anger, anxiety, or depression. Your child can feel like they’re living in a nightmare.

What is at the “Root” of Hormone Imbalance?

Many factors are involved, from chemicals in the water, and dangerous ingredients that are found in water bottles, cans, non-stick pans and even microwave popcorn.

Is Your Child’s Food Altering Their Hormones?
Between growth hormones in beef and poultry farming, to GMO production in our grains, there is strong evidence that this is leading to a country filled with young people whose hormones are out of balance.

There are frightening reports out there, such as babies growing breasts due to formula with bovine growth hormones in it. Can you trust any facet of the food industry to have your child’s best interest at heart?

Growth Hormones and GMO’s harm your family at far greater levels than the food industry is willing to admit. What they continually express as being safe is actually far from it.

We hear the horror stories of kids who start their day with an energy drink, loaded with caffeine equivalent to 7 cups of coffee, and a GMO granola bar for lunch. Their hormones don’t have a fighting chance. Not only that, but kids are dying from these drinks! Click here to read about the dangers of energy drinks.

Because we understand the lifelong consequences (including unhealthy hormone levels) of eating meat, dairy, GMO grains and processed foods, our team loves to share the benefits of healthy, balanced, plant-strong eating.

Make Probiotics Your Child’s New “Best Friend”

When it comes to elevating health, probiotics are essential for well-being. Beneficial microbes metabolize and recycle hormones, including estrogen, thyroid hormones, and phytoestrogens.

Probiotics play a major role in helping to maintain hormonal balance in women from the teenage menstruating years to the postmenopausal years. If this balance is thrown out from an excess of estrogen, hormone imbalance results. Estrogen dominance symptoms are weight gain, PMS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, hot flashes, migraines, autoimmune diseases and even an increased risk of breast cancer.

Get the Purest Water

If you live near a factory, no doubt you are well aware that your drinking water is most likely contaminated with who knows what kinds of chemicals, but what about those of us who live in the city or suburbs, far from industrial contamination? Is our drinking water safe?

With over 2 million synthetic substances in use and 25,000 new substances introduced each year, the question is not, “is our water safe”, the question is,

“How do I protect myself and my family from these chemicals?”

A big concern now is the overwhelming amount of hormones and antibiotics in our drinking water from excretion! Plus drug makers are legally allowed to release hundreds of millions of pounds of pharmaceuticals into rivers and streams, that are then used for our drinking water.

Many years ago I heard the saying, “buy a filter, or be a filter.” That statement is even more true today.

Even bottled water with fancy labels and advertising, hides behind the fact that it contains highly dangerous toxic chemicals.

We are literally drinking ourselves to death!

What Can We Do About? – Get the Purest Water Available! Period.

More than 20 years ago, I established a friendship with the owner of a commercial water filtration manufacturer (located here in America) and like us, they take pride in designing only the highest quality products available.

Normally they sell their products exclusively to hotels, restaurants and other commercial buildings through large contractors. Because of our long friendship, the owner agreed to allow us to sell their products directly to our customers.

Since we work directly with them, we can guarantee that only the best filtration media and components are used, as well as attention to detail and craftsmanship in manufacturing.

A couple years ago, we did a podcast interview and recorded it for you to hear directly from Gary discuss the hows and whys of protecting yourself (and your family) from all the contaminants that are present in our water supply today.

Smart Kids Don't Do Drugs

Today’s world is like a war zone against our children, mentally and physically. From an onslaught of toxins like pesticides, herbicides and artificial flavorings and colorings in our food, fluoride and chemicals in our water, most children are diet poor, which creates conditions for the “perfect storm” where focus is impaired.

When a child has lack of focus or concentration in school, they are often labeled as “hyperactive”or worse, diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder and prescribed drugs like Ritalin or Adderall.

Drugs just mask the symptoms, they never get to the heart of the matter. And are often dangerous, altering the personality of the child and their ability to learn. Another downside, is that a child once considered to be too “active”, is now behaving like a child-Zombie, even falling asleep during class.

We don’t believe your child need drugs to focus! Join us over the next 3 weeks, as we cover this topic, as well as others, affecting our young people, including hormones and keeping our young athletes strong and healthy.

We hope you’ll join us. Pass this along to your grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or anyone you know that could benefit from hearing truth in the face of this drug-driven world our young people live in.

Mental FOCUS is Important at any Age

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnoses are on the rise in our nation, with more than 3 million new diagnosis each year.

Scientists have not been able to pinpoint a single cause of this epidemic. However, there are many factors that can contribute. Eleven percent (yes, 11%) of children ages 4-17 were diagnosed with ADHD, a 16% increase since 2007. Click Here to Read More

Do you know a child dealing with attention deficit issues? Here are some areas that are considered to be contributing factors:

1. Pesticides – Consumption of pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables, even in the pregnant mother, are now showing at higher than normal rates of ADD/ADHD in their children.
2. Lead exposure – a neurotoxin, lead has been removed from most homes and schools, but traces of it are still everywhere.  A 2009 study found that children with ADHD tend to have higher blood-lead levels than other kids.
3. Food additives – While most European countries have banned certain preservatives, after research linked hyperactivity in children to food that contained mixtures of artificial colors and preservatives, the FDA continues to say that they are safe.
4. Overall Diet – Certain dietary components may affect behavior, and a recent Australian study suggested that adolescents with diets high in fat, refined sugar, soda, and sodium were two times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD as other kids.
5. Overexposure to Chemicals – Researchers have found a link between polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PCFs) – industrial compounds widely used in products like stain-resistance coatings and food packaging, and ADHD. Phthalates – found in items like toys, food packaging and cosmetics, have also been linked to ADHD.
6. Deficiencies in Omega-3 fatty acids –  which are important for brain development and function, can contribute to ADHD symptoms.
7. Home Environment – can make for stressed and unhealthy children:

  • Second-hand smoke
  • Stress in the home
  • Disorder – children thrive on routine and boundaries
  • Sleep – children need more sleep than adults and without it become cranky and irritable
  • Lack of a quiet place for homework, creative thinking or reading

Keeping Your Child Focused

The side effects of ADD/ADHD drugs can be highly detrimental to children and young adults. Issues can range from sleep issues, decreased appetite, to delayed growth and tics. Click Here to Read More

There is a different way to treat children who lack focus. When supplemented properly, combined with control of surrounding environment and diet, many children can go on to lead successful school careers, apart from drugs.

Omega 3/6/9 contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) that are just that – “essential” for the body.

EFA’s are the major constituents of all cell membranes. Without fatty acids, the membranes are unable to function. This means the life process comes to a shuddering halt.

“The brain, when its water weight is removed, consists primarily of Essential Fatty Acids. That is why there is so much attention deficit problems with our children. They get next to zero amounts of EFA’s in their junkfood diet.”
-Dr. Linda Page, ND

How to Outsmart a Stroke

an artists rendering of the brain with neurons firing

Ninety-nine percent of people who have a stroke don’t even know its happened, until they wake up in the hospital (if they wake up at all.) Blood to the brain gets choked off and damage is immediate.

If you do survive your first stroke, you are usually left with severe speech problems, crippled walking and arm/hand movement, along with brain fog due to the damage caused by lack of oxygen to the brain.

Recovery from a stroke is slow and arduous. While there are no short-cuts to developing new neural pathways, we do have an answer that can help – our top selling Mind Power Formula.

Along with the 103 other ingredients in this formula, that I call “The Einstein Pill”, is an amazing compound called Vinpocetine. I don’t know why doctors aren’t revealing this to everyone.

Vinpocetine has extraordinary effect on blood flow into and through the brain. Enhancing blood flow means your brain can outsmart the stroke before it strikes. Vinpocetine can help with memory enhancement, cognitive thinking capacity and helps keep your brain young and frisky.

What Is Vinpocetine?

European countries have long been using all-natural Periwinkle for aid in cognitive decline. From the seeds of the Periwinkle plant is extracted our amazing Vinpocetine.

A cerebrovascular accident, or stroke, is defined as the abrupt onset of a neurological deficit, which can be due to ischemia (lack of blood flow). Vinpocetine acts as Mother Nature’s pressure valve, to protect your brain when blood pressure spikes, putting your brain at risk for crippling strokes.

Research on Vinpocetine is vast. No significant side effects related to Vinpocetine treatment have been reported, so it is considered to be safe for long-term use.

Who Can Benefit?

Mind Power Brain Anti-Aging formulaMost of the published research about Vinpocetine focuses on memory enhancement and formation, cognition, reducing inflammation, stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cerebrovascular diseases.

Nearly everyone can benefit from Vinpocetine. Whether you are looking for simple memory improvement to serious disease assistance, Mind Power with Vinpocetine may help you.

This extraordinary formula dramatically increases oxygen flow to the brain to allow it to “think clearly”, while conducting high electrical thought patterns and increased volume of thinking.
