If you are reading this you are concerned or at least curious about your bone health. There are options. It’s your choice.
We hear about it all night on television.
A problem of epidemic proportions.
Consider these statistics:
•Approximately 34 million Americans over the age of 50 are estimated to suffer from decreased bone density
•Bone and joint disease are a leading cause of disability, affecting over 16 million adults in the United States
•According to recent figures, 66 million adults — one in three —report chronic joint symptoms
Bony tissue is a chemical storehouse, serving as a repository for essential minerals. It contains 99% of the body’s calcium and releases amounts of this element as needed to assist in heart, muscle and nerve action. Bone marrow is a blood generator. It produces red blood cells, necessary for transferring oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. Marrow synthesizes white blood cells that help fight off infection and platelets which enable blood to clot and assist in healing. Healthy bones are also a factor in preserving healthy joints, promoting the retention of cartilage and synovial fluid that keep the joint lubricated and cushioned against shock. Without strong, healthy bones, none of these processes are possible.
If just drinking milk and taking calcium supplements worked we would all have healthy bones, wouldn’t we?
If you are reading this, you are looking for options, right? Read on.
You will want to know about a revolutionary formula for bone health by Dr Narain Naidu: OsteoDenx from Nikken represents a unique advance in support of healthy, strong bones.
Only OsteoDenx is designed to promote both aspects of bone health — the release and absorption of vital mineral compounds, and the formation of new bone tissue.*
OsteoDenx is not a calcium nutritional supplement. It is not a prescription osteo drug. Ordinary supplements merely provide minerals such as calcium and phosphorus in an effort to replace what is depleted every day. OsteoDenx is different: it is designed to complement the body’s natural tissue growth and to help support the physical process of preserving bone density.*
In its role as a bone health supplement, OsteoDenx helps support a range of physical and systemic activities that are necessary to sustain life.
»Bone health requires constant replenishment.
Nutritional supplements can supply the raw materials that are needed for bone regeneration. But that is only part of the process. These materials need to be absorbed into bone tissue and converted to usable form. With calcium supplementation alone, much of the ingredients will never reach the intended destination. A large proportion of ingested calcium is excreted, because the body only consumes enough for its immediate needs. Prescription osteo drugs also have their limitations. Pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements both offer essential biochemicals. But by themselves, they lack any mechanism for assisting bone tissue’s ability to make use of these resources. That’s the unique difference with OsteoDenx. It includes a patent- pending transport system that is formulated to support the body’s own, natural replenishment of calcium and other minerals.*

Let me know if you want to know more about Osteodenx. I am very excited to be able to offer this product and business opportunity to people at this time. Leave a comment below.

Anyone sniffling and sneezing from seasonal allergies? It’s time to pull out my ceramic neti pot, fill it with warm salty water and soothe my sinuses. Use of neti pot has been practiced for hundreds of years in India. Also known by a more clinical name as nasal lavage (I prefer neti) a saline solution washes dust, pollen, mucus gently from the sinus cavities as well as hydrating Sound strange? It is, the first few times I attempted this I was very worried that it would be uncomforatable, like getting water up my nose from swimming. What I can tell you is that now it feels great, I can’t wait to get to it when I have allergies, the beginnings of a cold, post-nasal drip or have just returned from a long day in NYC or a long and dehydrating plane trip.
You can find neti pots online and often in your local natural food store. Here is a youtube demonstrating how to use! There are numerous video’s- wish they were around when I was fumbling trying to figure out how to use it. You do ot have to use special “neti” salt, just finely ground sea salt with no additives is fine.
I have my Nikken Air Power 5 Pro right next to my bed every night. I run it 24/7. It senses pollutants and changes speed to accommodate dust and voc’s. Research shows that negative ions have a positive effect on our health. Negative ions also clean and allow our internal environment to perform better. Negative ions neutralize positively charged pollutants in the air. Now that California is banning the use of air filters with ozone, Nikken stands alone as the air filter with a patented and safe process to create healthy negative ions.

At a neighborhood party last night, Annie slipped and twisted her ankle. Everyone rushed around trying to help her. She was embarrassed, she needed space to lie down and collect herself. So what is the best treatment in a situation like this ? R.I.C.E.R – remember this: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevate, Referral for medical evaluation.
Here is a helpful site with good explanations about what a sprain is and how to treat a sprain including resting initially then getting into motion so that scar tissue won’t form, and warning not to do anything that causes pain. Some other helpful modalities Annie used are magnets and far infrared products that helped take down the swelling and increased circulation.
