Whole Body Vibration Exercise Machines

This type of passive exercise may sound a bit too good to be true, but for some individuals it may be a true blessing. Consider patients with multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease, or even osteoarthritis who are unable to commit to a regimen of regular exercise. These patients would benefit greatly from the muscle toning and conditioning attributed to whole body vibration.

Bio-Hacking Part 1

Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?

Valerian Root

Stress can be a killer. Almost all of us have been told that it’s a great idea to reduce the amount of stress in our lives, but that’s easier said than done most of the time.

It is therefore responsible for turning that candy bar into a needed energy spike or that second baked potato into an unwanted bit of pudge around the midsection. The systems consist of the mouth, the esophagus, the stomach, and the intestines, which are aided along the way by other important organs such as the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.

America’s Sleep Epidemic And Low HGH

Growth hormone is typically released during REM sleep. During each cycle of REM sleep, bursts of HGH are released into the body, which uses the hormone to aid in cell reproduction, fat loss, and the ability to restore energy needed for the day. A lack of HGH in the body can cause a multitude of other issues as well, such as: fat gain, difficulty building muscle mass, sleep apnea, loss of bone density, osteoporosis, dry or sagging skin, and even depression and anxiety!

What 70 Plus Years Have Taught Me About Health and Fitness by Thurman “Ray” Plumlee

What 70 Plus Years Have Taught Me About Health and Fitness takes us far away from the ‘good old days’ when older people were advised to have a much more sedentary lifestyle. Gone are the days when we were told to just sit back and relax, while basically avoiding exercise as if it were stress.
