What is your Cardiovascular Health Risk?

What is your Cardiovascular Health risk?

February is American Heart Health Month.  At PureBalance we are celebrating the heart all month long and want to share some tips on how to get a head start to a healthier heart!

A healthy heart goes beyond your cholesterol numbers.  Did you know that 50% of all heart attacks occur in people with normal cholesterol levels?  Why do most Americans base their cardiovascular health on a number that at best is relevant only 50% of the time?  At PureBalance we go beyond the lipid panel.  Our Advanced Cardiovascular Health Blood Panel measures other risk factors that give us a much more in depth picture of your cardiovascular health.  This panel will allow us to better understand the specifics of your situation so we can create a customized dietary, lifestyle, exercise, and supplement program to restore health and balance to your cardiovascular system.

The Current state of Cardiovascular testing…

For most people in the US testing for cardiovascular disease consist of a total cholesterol count, triglyceride count, HDL, and LDL values.  Although these are risk factors that we believe everyone should get checked yearly, it is important to understand that cardiovascular disease is not only about blood fats. Our Advanced Cardiovascular Health Blood Panel uncovers information related to inflammation specific to the cardiovascular system.  We look at the size of the lipids because research shows that smaller dense particles are associated with increased heart attacks.  We look for nutrient deficiencies that play a primary role in heart disease such as folic acid and vitamin D, and evaluate other markers associated with arteriosclerosis.

Why doesn’t my Cardiologist offer this test?

Cardiologists are trained to manage heart disease.  The tools they are familiar with consist of drugs and surgery.  The markers in our Advanced Cardiovascular Health Blood Panel are markers that indicate dietary and nutrient deficiencies and chronic inflammation.  They require specific dietary changes and food supplements to correct these imbalances. Some Cardiologists around the country are learning more about these important markers in cardiovascular health and the importance in preventative medicine.  Can you afford to wait for your Cardiologist to jump on board?

Cardiovascular disease is an inflammatory condition, and inflammatory markers can predict cardiovascular stress up to 10 years before a heart attack.  If you can control inflammation now you may be able to prevent a cardiovascular event in the future.  Get started today and get the PureBalance Cardiovascular Health Blood Panel, Your Heart will love you for it!

A cardiovascular health plan will be put together depending on your unique needs based on your blood work results.

4 Heart Friendly Tips:

1) Heart Friendly Product Tip!

Total Omega 3+ our best product for Heart Health!

Total Omega 3+ is the perfect supplement to support a healthy heart.   TO3+ is a combination of pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil, Ubiquinol, Vitamin K2, Vitamin D3, and Vitamin E with Tocotrienols.  This combination works specifically on decreasing inflammation in your cardiovascular system.

Fish oil is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory products available, and crucial to keeping your blood fats balanced.  Ubiquinol is the active form of CoQ10, and the preferred form to use when taking statin medications.  Ubiquinol is one of the most potent antioxidants in the heart tissue.  Vitamin K2 is very important for proper calcium metabolism.  Research shows the K2 transports calcium to the bones, where it belongs, and not to the arteries where it can become part of atherosclerotic plaques! Healthy Vitamin D levels are important for heart and immune health.  Vitamin E with Tocotrienols is one of the most studied natural ingredients for the treatment of heart disease.  Studies show Tocomin softens the arteries and helps with the absorption of fat.

2) Heart Friendly Treatment Tip!

Far Infrared Sauna

Medical research shows that regular use of a Far Infrared Sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. The cardiovascular cleansing properties of a far infrared sauna allow the circulatory system to have increased circulation and oxygenation while lowering blood pressure. A passive cardiovascular work out!

A study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that repeated use of a far infrared sauna improved vascular endothelial and cardiac function in patients with chronic heart failure.

High daily stress levels put constant strain on the body's nervous system and can contribute to chronic disease. The far infrared sauna helps to reduce physical stress by boosting circulation and triggering the production of endorphins, the "feel good" hormones. Besides these physiological effects, a sauna session also contributes to stress reduction simply by providing a peaceful and relaxing environment away from it all.  Book your Sauna time today.  Another reason for your heart to love you!

3) Heart Friendly Dietary Tip!

De-junk your diet! Processed foods are rich in one thing and that is trans fats, the worst fat you can consume. Why are trans fats unhealthy?

Trans fat may increase the levels of “bad” cholesterol in your body and decrease your levels of “good” cholesterol doing nothing good for your heart. Small amounts of trans fat occur naturally in foods such as milk, butter and animal meat. But this type of trans fat doesn’t seem to be as harmful to your health as the trans fat found in commercially prepared baked goods, fried foods and snack foods.

Read food labels carefully and check for trans fat. Food labels must list trans fat, total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. Trans fat will appear in the ingredient list as “hydrogenated vegetable oil” or “partially hydrogenated vegetable oil.”

When you read a nutrition label, keep in mind that companies are allowed to list the amount of trans fat as “0 grams” if the product contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving. This means that your food may still contain some trans fat even if the nutrition label says “0 grams” per serving, be aware of foods that say “trans fat free” on the package. Better yet, eat a diet rich in fruit and veggies…no label to decipher!

4) Heart Friendly Exercise Tip!

To maximize the benefits of exercise on your heart, mix up what you do. Strength-train a couple of days a week. Walk as much as possible, mix in some jogging, running or uphill walking just to change this up.  Consider taking a yoga class for increased circulation and relaxation. Weight training can help lower high blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels and help control blood sugar levels. By increasing lean muscle tissue and decreasing fat tissue in the body you help boost your metabolism and maintain a healthy weight.  Different exercises have different cardiovascular benefits.  Variety is the key to exercise when it comes to supporting heart health.

The best exercises are the ones you enjoy and that are convenient for you to do. Those are the ones you'll keep doing. Remember, staying active is vital to a healthy heart!

Get on track to a healthy, happier heart!

Five Healthy Tips to Help You Enjoy the Holiday Season

The holiday season is almost here! Beginning with Thanksgiving and continuing until New Year’s Day, there are 40 days and 40 nights of opportunities to eat, drink and be merry!

As you know, too much of a good thing can be detrimental -- sugar, alcohol and poor food choices can wreak havoc on the immune system. But you don’t have to crash and burn-out your health during the holidays. Instead, prepare to enjoy all of the fun and celebrations by following these five healthy lifestyle tips, which are both preventative and curative in the event you do overindulge:

1. Eat two servings of organic fruit and seven servings of organic vegetables every single day. The majority of fruit and vegetables are nutrient dense, high in fiber and low in calories. They also contain a number of essential vitamins and minerals that cannot be found in other types of foods.

Two servings of fruit and seven servings of vegetables will help the body maintain the alkaline pH it needs to fight pain, illness and fatigue. Sound like a lot of produce? You can easily achieve these goals by eating soups, salads or by drinking green drinks and smoothies.

2. Decipher and manage cravings. One of the biggest challenges during the holiday season is to manage food cravings. It helps if you know the real message your body is sending, as well as what steps you can take to bring your system back into balance. Here’s a short guide to some of the most common holiday season, food cravings:

Sweet: Can’t get enough of sugar? More than likely, you’re experiencing an imbalance in your blood sugar metabolism. Take PureBalance Chlorella; eat small protein snacks every 2-3 hours of your waking day; be sure to consume high-fiber foods, as well as complex carbohydrates to help stabilize and rebalance your system.

Chocolate: Yes, it’s truly yummy! But craving chocolate often signals that your body is deficient in magnesium. You don’t have to give up chocolate. But eating other foods high in magnesium, such as nuts, seeds, fish and leafy greens, will be beneficial and can help ease the cravings.

Cheese: Macaroni and cheese, scalloped potatoes with cheese, as well as lots of pizza (to go with all that football) will be in heavy rotation this holiday season. If you find yourself dreaming about deep dish pizza, you may have a fatty-acid deficiency. Supplement with PureBalance Total Omega 3+ or Fish Oil, and include wild salmon, raw walnuts and ground flaxseed in your diet.

Salt: Craving salty and crunchy foods like popcorn and tortilla chips often signal an imbalance in the body’s stress hormones. Give yourself a break and take a few deep breaths to reclaim your center before you pop that salty snack in your mouth. You may also need to support your body with extra B-vitamins. A whole food, green supplement, such as PureBalance Chlorella is contains the entire B-complex, which can help your body do a better job of coping with stress.

3. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! But not with soda, energy drinks, coffee, tea or alcohol. Your body needs and craves water. Every day, do your best to drink 32 ounces (1 quart) of filtered water for every 50 pounds of body weight. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, your goal would be to drink 96 ounces (or three quarts). But if you weigh between 151 and 200 pounds, you should strive to drink four quarts. We’ve got the perfect gift -- 40-ounce, stainless steel water bottles – to help you or your loved one stay happily hydrated this holiday season.

4. Move your body – at least every other day for a minimum of 45 minutes. Turn on the radio, watch the news, or open a magazine and you’ll read or hear about a study touting the benefits of exercise. Brisk walking, bicycling, yoga, dancing (NIA or Zumba) contribute to keeping your joints flexible, lowering inflammation, stabilizing your mood, improving the quality of your health and successful aging. There’s no simpler prescription for optimal health and longevity!

5. Probiotics and Vitamin D3 are two of the best supplements for optimal immunity. The beneficial bacteria will help remove the unwanted sugars and refined carbohydrates from the intestinal tract while selectively protecting the intestines from the types of yeast and bacterial infections that foster colds, flu or food poisoning. Vitamin D3 is a major powerhouse, which maintains your body’s calcium balance; aids cell differentiation; boots your immunity, regulates blood pressure, and supports insulin secretion. Not sure about your Vitamin D3 levels? We offer a simple test at PureBalance Health Center that will help you determine your body’s needs. Call the office at 224-521-1212 for details.

In the event that you do party too much, Pure Balance Living Fiber and Florabalance have the added benefit of hangover relief when you drink responsibly! The B-vitamins in Living Fiber help keep the brain hydrated and the probiotic bacteria will consume the sugars before they speed the dehydration process. For best results take 2-3 capsules of Living Fiber and 1 capsule of Florabalance before going out. Upon return, take the same dosage again with at least 12 ounces of filtered water. Be sure to eat a healthy, high protein breakfast, such as eggs, the next morning!

These tips can help you maintain (or restore in the case of overindulgence) your health and keep your spirits bright this holiday season. Of course, your best option is to always think prevention and take immediate action at the first signs of symptoms. PureBalance Natural Family Health Center always has the tools you need to keep you and your family feeling vibrant and healthy throughout the year! Call us today for more information or to make an appointment: 224.521.1212.

Happy Holidays from all the members of the Bayne Family and all of the staff of the PureBalance Natural Family Health Center!

Holiday Hours: In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, we will be closed Thursday, November 22 and Friday, November 23, 2012. 


Keep Your College Students Healthy and Smart!

Over the next few weeks, many of the young adults I’ve been seeing in my practice for upwards of 10 years will be leaving for college. I have proudly watched them grow up and accomplish many great things. Although most of the parents with whom I’ve spoken are ready for their children to leave the nest, they frequently ask what they can do to help their children remain healthy while away at school.

Like their parents, I’m concerned about the traditional college campus lifestyle where fast food is king; soda and caffeine are used as stimulants to help fight the need for sleep, and alcohol consumption is used to numb the stress. At the same time, I know it’s unrealistic to believe that college students will fill their plates with broccoli at every opportunity. That’s why nutritional supplementation is a simple and affordable way to bridge the dietary gaps and keep your child’s immune system vibrant and strong. Think of it as a College Survival Kit.

While we know important nutritive components will either be missing or limited in the average college student diet, I’d like to focus on the essential role of greens, fats, and probiotics in fostering strong immunity and mental clarity. A concentrated, green-superfood supplement will not only provide some of the needed four to six daily servings of greens, but also essential vitamins and minerals that alkalize the body. Fish oil will lubricate their brains with the proper fats, which will enhance and improve concentration. Fish oil also is vital for boosting immunity, especially during the winter.

Probiotics are the single best supplement for your college student’s optimal immunity. The beneficial bacteria will help remove the unwanted sugars and refined carbohydrates from the intestinal tract while selectively protecting the intestines from the types of yeast and bacterial infections that foster colds, flu or food poisoning.

The PureBalance College Survival Kit consists of proprietary formulas of PureBalance Living Fiber, Pure Fish Oil, and Florabalance, which will provide your child with the real competitive advantage necessary for success in collage, as well as the ability to remain vibrant, focused and healthy throughout the school year.

A healthy diet, proper rest, staying hydrated, getting appropriate exercise, and whole food supplementation are the best tools anyone can use to restore or maintain health, no matter what their age or stress level. But if you can’t get your college students to take the supplements for the immune-boosting benefits, be sure to let them know that Pure Balance Living Fiber and Florabalance have the added benefit of hangover relief when they drink responsibly! The B-vitamins in Living Fiber help keep the brain hydrated and the probiotic bacteria will consume the sugars before they speed the dehydration process. For best results take 2-3 capsules of Living Fiber and 1 capsule of Florabalance before going out. Upon return, take the same dosage again with at least 12 ounces of filtered water. Be sure to encourage them to eat a high protein breakfast, such as eggs, in the morning!

This month, we have a Back-to-School special on the PureBalance College Survival Kit. Stock up and make sure the health and well-being of your children will be protected while they’re away from home.
