DHEA Roles and Benefits

What is DHEA?

DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by your body’s adrenal glands.
DHEA is used for slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s disease.
DHEA functions as a precursor to male and female sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Precursors are substances that are converted by the body into a hormone.
Testosterone and estrogen production also generally declines with age. DHEA supplements can increase the level of these hormones.

Learning About Reiki: Fundamentals 101

What is an Overview of Reiki?

Reiki was developed in 1922 in Japan by Mikao Usui. Reiki is the awareness that an unseen energy flows through all living things and affects the quality of a person’s health. If your life energy is low, you have a harder time being able to deal with stress; you may not sleep well, and are more susceptible to illness. If your life energy is high or strong you feel like a strong person, can deal with stress better, and are less likely to get sick. Reiki is what increases a person’s supply of life energy.

The Importance of Using Organic/Natural Skin, Hair and Nail Products

Natural and organic products are increasingly becoming more and more popular. The term ‘natural’ tends to denote products that are free from synthetic compounds and ingredients, though there is no concrete regulation on the definition by any governing party (which is a problem when companies slap this word or similar words on a product label, including foods). Generally, natural shampoos and hair products contain beneficial natural plant and herb extracts that provide a ton of positive results for the hair and scalp, but further investigation into the root of the company and its true operating philosophies is key.

Why Halloween Candy is So “Tricky” and Healthy Treat Alternatives

Yes, Halloween is here and it is the start of the official holiday season. This holiday season beginning will also lead to the inevitable “flu season.” I always wondered if the two were related. I hear many parents argue that Halloween comes only once a year and it is a time to let the children indulge and have all the candy they can possibly collect and carry in a single night, only to eat them for the next few weeks until the next big holiday, and then the next. So what really is so wrong with our celebrating the ghosts, goblins, witches, pumpkins and adorable costumes? There is no better way to demonstrate how positively correlated these two categories (sugar/candy/processed foods and diabetes/weight gain/chronic diseases) have in common, and how it is not just on Halloween that we lightly indulge. We consume such foods on a daily basis and have eaten ourselves sick. Now that’s scary.

14 Different Ways to Meditate and How You Benefit from Meditation

Standing Meditation: Standing instead of sitting to meditate, the action of standing can actually help people suffering from lower back pain and promotes a greater sense of internal stability.  Stand in a comfortable, straight posture with the feet pointing straight forward, about shoulder width apart. After settling into the position, do a quick scan of the body and mindfully release tension from the body and bring awareness to each part when doing so. Begin with five minutes and lengthen as your practice deepens.
