Are you aware that by drinking more water people have seen improvements in the following…

·        Sleeping
·        Cramping
·        Etc.

Adding more water into your lifestyle is one of the easiest things to do.  Here a simple way to do it.  (This is the minimum amount you should be drinking.)

  • 1.     Upon rising fill up the LARGEST glass you own with water and drink it all!
  • 2.     About a half hour before eating each meal or snack, drink a glass of water. 
  • 3.     1-2 hours after eating drink a glass of water.
  • 4.     Drink a glass of water before bed.
  • 5.     Anytime you drink caffeinated or alcoholic beverages you lose water.  For every caffeinated or alcoholic beverage drink 2 glasses of water. 

What happens if you follow this for a few weeks and your symptoms do not improve?  Keep Drinking!  If you have optimal hydration levels your body will always work better, even if you still have symptoms!  You do not feed pop (soda) to your dog, why do you give it to your kids?

Acne vulgaris: a disease of Western civilization.
Department of Health and Exercise Science, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523, USA.
In westernized societies, acne vulgaris is a nearly universal skin disease afflicting 79% to 95% of the adolescent population. In men and women older than 25 years, 40% to 54% have some degree of facial acne, and clinical facial acne persists into middle age in 12% of women and 3% of men. Epidemiological evidence suggests that acne incidence rates are considerably lower in nonwesternized societies. Herein we report the prevalence of acne in 2 nonwesternized populations: the Kitavan Islanders of Papua New Guinea and the Aché hunter-gatherers of Paraguay. Additionally, we analyze how elements in nonwesternized environments may influence the development of acne.
Of 1200 Kitavan subjects examined (including 300 aged 15-25 years), no case of acne (grade 1 with multiple comedones or grades 2-4) was observed. Of 115 Aché subjects examined (including 15 aged 15-25 years) over 843 days, no case of active acne (grades 1-4) was observed.
The astonishing difference in acne incidence rates between nonwesternized and fully modernized societies cannot be solely attributed to genetic differences among populations but likely results from differing environmental factors. Identification of these factors may be useful in the treatment of acne in Western populations.
