Pushing physical boundaries with Synergy products

SalmeReijo2If you had asked them five years ago whether or not they could hike 70 kilometers and spend eight days in the wilderness, they would have thought you were crazy for even asking.

However, a few weeks ago, Salme Ala-Heikkilä and Reijo Ojanen, a couple in their mid-sixties, conquered what they once thought was impossible. Many years ago, Salme and Reijo hiked regularly, but health issues made it difficult to continue this hobby. Now, hiking is something they look forward to together.

They left their hometown of Tampere, Finland and traveled 14 hours to Utsjoki where they found beautiful rivers and rolling hills close to the border of Norway. Close to this city is the Kaldoaivi Wilderness Area where Salme and Reijo started their journey.

Their backpacks were loaded and ready to go, Salme’s pack weighed 18 kg, which is almost one-third of her total weight. Reijo’s pack weighed 26 kg, and some of its contents were Synergy products.

“Leaving our products at home wasn’t a thought that ever crossed our minds,” Reijo said. “It wasn’t hard to take the extra weight because need them. They were worth carrying because they helped us through our adventure.”

The pair claims they have never been the athletic or very active type, especially in the last decade of their life as exercise has become more straining on their bodies. However, they love the outdoors and the chance to get away from people, electronics and the sounds of the city. They can rest their minds, listen to the birds and replenish the energy they were lacking in their daily lives.

“We enjoy taking in the nature, and it’s great to be able to have natural products in this setting that gave us the energy we needed to complete the 70 kilometers,” Salme said.

Thank to Synergy products, Salme and Reijo plan to make this 8-day hiking tour an annual tradition. Their fantastic health is what allows them to seize the days and moments in their lives, to live every day with energy and excitement. When they introduce Synergy to those they meet, one of the messages they share is that Synergy products can be the ticket to rekindling the passions and dreams you gave up years ago.

“We love being a part of Synergy,” Salme said, “and we love that we can be adventurous again. We want people to know there are products that can help them change their lives like we have changed ours.”

World Renowned Heart Surgeon Speaks Out On What Really Causes Heart Disease

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is. I freely admit to being wrong.. As a heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries,today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific fact.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labelled “opinion makers.” Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake. The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

It Is Not Working!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that inflammation in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated — it is quite simply your body’s natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process,a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well,smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream dietthat is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that: The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

 

Dr. Dwight Lundell is the past Chief of Staff and Chief of Surgery at Banner Heart Hospital , Mesa , AZ. His private practice, Cardiac Care Center was in Mesa, AZ. Recently Dr. Lundell left surgery to focus on the nutritional treatment of heart disease. He is the founder of Healthy Humans Foundation that promotes human health with a focus on helping large corporations promote wellness. He is also the author of The Cure for Heart Disease and The Great Cholesterol Lie.

Death by Doctor

Death By Doctor

Peter Glidden, Author of The MD Emporer Has No Clothes says the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA today is MD directive treatments.

“You go to a Medical Doctor, he gives you a treatment and you die from it.” 

That’s 15,000 medicare patients a month ar killed by MD treatments.

That must be why they say “doctor’s practice”.

Be pro-active about Alzeimers prevention

A recent article published in the scientific journal PloS One says that eating curry twice a week can help prevent dementia. Great news for us curry lovers! However, the science behind the claim is based on solid research which shows that curcumin (which is in tumeric – a staple ingredient of curry) helps deal with plaque that builds up on the brain.

As we know Pro-Argi 9 also works on clearing out plaque in the body, yet another reason to take our ground-breaking nitric-oxide creating supplement, so the news is all good in this week’s article!

Other foods which it is claimed can help prevent Alzeimers include oily fish, nuts, olive oil, a wide variet of fruit & veg plus small quantities of tea, coffee, dark chocolate & red wine.

Finally, here are some lifestyle suggestions from the HDM team which we believe can contribute to a healthy future for you and your brain;
- Daily exercise
- Mental stimulation, for example card games or bridge
- Active social life & hobbies
- Try your best to reduce stress and get at least 7 hours of good quality sleep every night

Now, go out tonight and treat yourself to that curry!

Here’s a link to the research;

22 Good Reasons why you should Try ProArgi-9 Plus

The nitric oxide derived from arginine is directly or indirectly implicated in practically every cellular response and health condition imaginable.

From the cardiovascular system to the immune system, and hormone function to nerve function. Although an exhaustive list of possible applications for the amino acid is not included, the following are the primary scientifically backed reasons that anyone – even healthy people – should consider adding the arginine to their health and wellness regimen.

1. It is one thousand times more powerful than any naturally occurring antioxidant in the body. Arginine’s antioxidant properties support various body system and may protect against heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes, as well as slowing premature aging.

2. It offers wide-ranging cardiovascular support, including controlling blood pressure and plaque formation. Nitric oxide keeps arteries relaxed and pliable for normal blood pressure, preventing hypertension and angina.

3. It enhances memory, particularly long-term memory, and may help to reverse the effects of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

4. It boosts human growth hormone (HGH) production, which has anti-aging properties.

5. It enhances communication of messenger cells between nerves and the brain.

6. It may help improve immune function and fight bacterial infections.

7. It may help in the treatment and prevention of diabetes since many disease complications, including poor circulation and blindness, are vascular in nature. Arginine is also found to regulate insulin secretion in the pancreas.

8. It may inhibit the division and proliferation of cancer cells.

9. It helps with cholesterol control by lowering serum and LDL cholesterol levels.

10. It enhances male sexual performance by treating vascular erectile dysfunction (ED).

11. It anticoagulant abilities reduce clotting to lower heart attack and stroke risk.

12. It reduces pregnancy-related hypertension, a risk factor for both the expecting mother and the unborn child.

13. It is useful in the treatment of asthma by opening pulmonary pathways for easier breathing and the treatment of lung disorders.

14. It relaxes hypertonic sphincter muscles, preventing and healing hemorrhoids.

15. It boosts lean muscle mass and preserves bone density by encouraging HGH production, which also leads to a reduction in fatty tissue. Because af these properties, it may be useful in weight management and strength training.

16. It can help offset cardiovascular and lung damage caused by tobacco use, since nitric oxide levels in smokers are less than half of those found in non-smokers.

17. It helps to accelerate wound healing and postsurgery recovery. Research has shown it is useful in treating burn wounds and stimulates wound healing in the elderly.

18. It may be useful in enhancing athletic performance due to its ability to boost exercise tolerance, its beneficial effect on the lungs, and its effect on HGH levels. Which helps with building lean muscle tissue.

19. It may be used to improve the function of the prostate.

20. It may prevent and possible reverse the effects of osteoporosis by positively affecting bone mass.

21. It has been used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and to reduce the occurrence of ulcers – especially stress- related – without affecting gastric acid production.

22. It may improve renal function and slow the progression of renal disease and age-related chronic renal failure. Arginine`s protective effect on the kidneys may also benefit those with diabetes.

ProArgi-9 Plus is a revolutionary product with far-reaching health benefits and powerful support ProArgi-9 Plus is Synergy’s top selling product and the cornerstone of any nutritional regimen. One serving contains 5,000 mg (5 grams) of elemental pharmaceutical grade l-arginine. Often referred to as the “miracle molecule,” l-arginine has potent health-enhancing properties.
