“Tea Up” to Stop Strokes

Drinking lots of  black or green tea may lower your risk of stroke, according to research presented at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference in San Diego, Calif., earlier this year.  That’s especially good news if you have diabetes, since people with the condition are twice as likely to suffer a stroke as those who don’t have diabetes.

High blood sugar levels can increase fatty deposits in the blood and cause clogging and hardening of the blood vessels.  Experts say anti-oxidants and other substances in tea appear to reverse this process, therby warding of strokes.

A multi-study review of 195,000 adults found that people who drink three or more cups of black or green tea daily had a 21% lower risk of stroke as compared with people who drank one cup or less.  Just be sure to skip the buttered crumpets!

Nothing could be healthier for your heart than a plateful of raw veggies, right?

Actually, a little steam treatment could be even better. New research suggests that steaming might improve the cholesterol-lowering capabilities of certain produce.

Lost in Digestion
When researchers tested the digestive effects of both raw and steamed veggies — beets, okra, carrots, eggplant, green beans, asparagus, and cauliflower — something interesting happened. It’s not clear why, but the steamed veggies did a better job of binding to bile acids. And that’s a good thing. It means more bile acids get excreted, which in turn means the liver needs more bad LDL cholesterol to make bile — which means there’s less LDL circulating in your body. Are you sure your cholesterol is under control? Take this quiz to find out.

Veggie Contingency Plan
Raw or steamed, your goal is to eat at least five servings of vegetables every day. But if you don’t always hit that goal, here are some ways to make sure that every bite of vegetables is working hard for you:

  • Find out when frozen veggies are more healthful than fresh — and vice versa.
  • Know when it’s worth it to go organic.
  • Absorb more nutrients from salads and steamed veggies with the healthy fats in these toppings.
  • Sprinkle on extra antioxidants with these herbs and spices.

More on Alternative Medicine becoming Mainstream

Andrea McCloskey suffers from fibromyalgia and used to take countless medications, including a high daily dose of the pain-killer Oxycodone. Now McCloskey takes no medications at all and is even working again.

She credits alternative health care practices offered at the Hazleton Health and Wellness Center.

“I feel so much better. It’s a fantastic exercise,” she said following a recent session.

While “alternative” is the accepted term, instructor Mark R. Reinhart prefers to use “complementary” to describe his brand of health care, specifically the Qigong (chee-gong) and Taiji (tai-chee) classes he teaches at the center.

Qigong and Taiji are similar practices consisting of fluid body movement, controlled breathing, balance and absolute concentration. “They have the same core principles: alignment and flow,” Reinhart said. “It pulls your focus in so you can’t think about anything else.”

Reinhart finds nothing wrong with traditional medicinal practices if used reasonably, but believes exercises such as Qigong and Taiji should also be incorporated to develop an entire healing of the mind, body and spirit.

“I’ve always been drawn to the culture; it always made sense,” said Reinhart, who has studied martial arts since 1975 and has been practicing Chinese internal arts for the past 15 years.

Reinhart received his Qigong therapist certification in 2005 and earned his Master of Medical Qigong degree in 2007. He now studies Chinese herbology one weekend a month in New York, the final requirement for full certification in Chinese herbal medicine.

Taiji is a trademark program at the Health and Wellness Center used to target specific conditions such as arthritis and diabetes, but according to Reinhart, the class is beneficial for just about any condition.

“There’s no question it works. It’s guaranteed to change you,” he said.

The arts of Qigong and Taiji have raised questions from the traditional medical field regarding their true value, but some studies have shown the practices work – and not only for rehabilitation or simple aches and pains.

Research conducted by the University of Miami School of Medicine has shown that after 10 Taiji classes over five weeks, adolescents diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder displayed a decrease in anxiety, daydreaming behaviors, inappropriate emotions and hyperactivity, along with a greatly improved conduct.

Other studies, about the effectiveness among older patients, showed similarly favorable results. The Baylor Medical School conducted a study in which researchers took cells from long-term practitioners of Qigong and gathered the same cells from ordinary test subjects. The study found that the cells of those doing Qigong live up to five times longer.

Reinhart’s students were not hesitant to add to these favorable claims.

McCloskey, who has been practicing Qigong for about two years and Taiji for one year, was able to talk her daughter, Shannon Petrill, into joining the classes.

“Mom got me into it. One centering breath and I was hooked,” Petrill said.

Petrill is no stranger to exercise. She used to weight-train until she began suffering from a few nagging injuries.

“Now I’m in the best shape ever without any injuries,” she said. “I don’t have half the problems I used to.”

After retiring from the Pennsylvania State Police, Frank Matweecha became overweight and had minor problems with his heart and blood pressure until he began taking the Taiji classes with Reinhart. He has taken Taiji for about a year and has noticed significant changes in both his health and appearance.

“You get stronger the more you do it,” he said. Even his doctor has noticed an improvement in his health.

Reinhart has used Taiji to alleviate pain in his arm due to chronic tendonitis.

But Reinhart stresses to his students that if they want the Qigong or Taiji to work at its full potential, they must put in the time and effort to continue learning.

“Everyone thinks they’re too busy,” he said. “The exercises work great but you have to do them, you have to make time. You have to focus and do it completely.”

Focus is one of the main themes of these exercises. According to Reinhart, with complete concentration during the workouts, physical tension is released, which allows the participants to mentally let go of any stress they may have.

“You learn how to relax on all different levels,” he said. “This is a progression into physical and mental relaxation. You have to incorporate this into everything you do; that’s where you really get the benefits.”

The purpose of this art is to offer people a calming exercise that can be done anywhere at any time when stress builds up, even if it’s as simple as conducting different breathing patterns while sitting in traffic.

“There’s no reason not to go through your day relaxed,” he said.

State of the Heart and Janet Hudonjorgensen to demonstrate Quantum Touch at Alternative Medicine-Live! April 4-5, 2008 in Salt Lake City

This modality has been called “A Significant Breakthrough” by Alternative Medicine Magazine.The ability to strikingly reduce pain and accelerate the healing process is an easily learned and invaluable skill.  

Whether you are a complete novice, a physician, chiropractor, acupuncturist, reflexologist, Qigong practitioner, massage therapist, or other health-care professional, Quantum-Touch offers you a dimension of healing that, until now, has not seemed possible!  

What is Quantum-Touch?

Quantum-Touch is an energy healing modality that applies the principles of resonance and entrainment to facilitate healing.  Practitioners learn to focus and amplify life-force energy (known as “chi” in Chinese and “prana” in Sanskrit) by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.   When the practitioner resonates at a high frequency, the client often entrains to, or matches, the higher frequency, thereby facilitating healing using the body’s biological intelligence.  Life-force energy affects matter on the quantum, subatomic level and works its way up through atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, and structure. 

Health, Wellness and Education, are themed topics at Salt Lake City Two-Day Conference and Expo, entitled “Alternative Medicine-Live!”

National Diabetes Educator & Health Coach

DeWayne McCulley is an ex-diabetic engineer who
survived a near-death, diabetic coma with a blood
glucose level of 1337 — more than 1200 points
above normal! Are you skeptical? (I would be).
Take a look at the doctor’s medical report of DeWayne’s blood glucose level and other health issues;
or, read what DeWayne’s doctor said in a newspaper article
about his recovery.

Despite two blood clots, high cholesterol, pneumonia and four insulin shots a day, DeWayne was able to use his engineering and biochemistry background to wean himself off the insulin, Coumadin and Lipitor — to reverse his Type 2 diabetes. He lowered his average glucose level to 92.5 mg/dL and his hemoglobin A1C to 4.7%,  while losing 52 pounds to reverse his Type 2 diabetes within 4 months.

He credits his recovery to God, his doctors/nurses, his mother, his daughter Cynthia, a set of accidents (blessings), and his undying thirst for knowledge — despite all of the “impossible” challenges he had to overcome. With a lot of encouragement from his daughter, his mother and people from work, the local churches, wellness industry, and the ADA diabetic support group he was facilitating, DeWayne decided to write the book, Death to Diabetes. It explains his experience with diabetes, the real root causes of diabetes, and the pathogenesis of the disease. The book also explains how to reverse Type 2 diabetes and its complications — by avoiding the 5 “dead” foods, eating the 5 “super” foods, taking the 5 critical wholefood nutritional supplements; following the Super Meal Model; and, utilizing the 7 wellness factors, including consistent exercise, blood glucose testing/analysis, stress reduction, and spiritual health. His hope is that this book  and his wellness training programs will inspire you the way he was inspired — by people he never would have met if it weren’t for his experience with diabetes.

Despite the success of his wellness program, the book, and his educational workshops, DeWayne (who grew up in Western Pennsylvania and graduated from Pennsylvania State University, B.S./E.E.) continued to receive phone calls and emails from diabetics all over the country, asking questions about their specific health needs. One of the reasons why DeWayne wrote his book was to reduce the number of phone calls and emails. However, the numbers have continued to increase, leading DeWayne to start health coaching over the phone.  That, in turn, has led DeWayne and his company Death to Diabetes, LLC to join forces with the PARWEL health services company. As a national diabetes educator and health coach, DeWayne conducts Death to Diabetes® workshops and seminars, and provides professional health coaching services to various companies, organizations, families, and individuals.
     
DeWayne, who has been featured in news articles and on radio shows in various cities, credited his success in Corporate America to strong parents, great teachers in elementary, junior and senior high school, and the blue-collar work ethic of the steel mills in Western Pennsylvania. DeWayne states emphatically, “For some strange reason, I was blessed with great teachers who reinforced what my parents had instilled in me — that I could do anything as long as I was willing to put in the effort and do the work. Ironically, that work ethic mentality helped me to successfully fight and beat my diabetes.”
