STRESS: The SILENT KILLER

May 14th, 2014

Stress is the SECRET KILLER.

There are hundreds of diseases listed on death certificates as the “cause of death”, but the reality is, the cause of death is almost always stress induced inflammation running rampant throughout the body.

Stress is a natural response of our bodies to react to internal and external toxins.

Our bodies go into “fight or flight” response and our immune system shifts into battle mode, trying desperately to adapt.

Eventually our immune system becomes overwhelmed and wears out, no longer able to fight.

Silently, inflammation burns us alive from the inside out.

As usual, Mother Nature has the solution to put out the “inflammation fires” once and for all.

Read on!  We believe we’ve found your Inflammation Salvation!

Overcoming the Secret Killer

The medical term for stress induced inflammation is Overactive Inflammatory Response and it literally turns the body into a cauldron of pain – throughout the joints, the hands, the head, heart – everywhere.

It mimics many of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, but is much worse.

Inflammation is a secret epidemic. It is highly dangerous and the common denominator in just about every serious disease condition today.

Inflammation has been implicated in a variety of diseases, from heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s, as well as stiff, aching joints, constant back pain, chronic unexplained headaches, exhaustion, chronic fatigue, brain fog, severe depression, and lack of libido.

In 2004, TIME Magazine uncovered for the world that chronic inflammation may be the engine that drives many of the most feared illnesses of middle and old age. Click here to read the article.

Here’s a snippet from the story about lowering inflammation:

“This concept is so intriguing because it suggests a new and possibly much simpler way of warding off disease. Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and colon cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent all three.”

Your Brain on Stress and NO Sleep

May 9th, 2014


STRESS – The Trillion Dollar Killer!

Stress is the trigger of all major diseases. Heart attacks, fatal strokes, brain hemorrhages and cardiac arrest are now our most common killers.

Studies have linked stress with cancer and heart disease for years, but the reality is, stress causes inflammation, and chronic inflammatory response is being linked to almost every illness known to man – obesity, autoimmune disorders like AIDS, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, etc.

It is imperative we to learn how to RELAX! It is definitely a lost art we need to reclaim! Do you even remember the last time you were able to get 8 FULL hours of sleep EVERY single night?

Stress is a natural response reaction to internal and external conditions, elevating alertness and our immune system response. A little stress is good, but prolonged stress leads to fatigue, lack of sleep and irritability, damages personal relationships and creates long-term health issues.

Our brains cannot survive this onslaught of stress and inflammation unscathed. Heightened, prolonged levels of cortisol in our bloodstream can be fatal!

Cortisol is called the “stress hormone”, secreted by the adrenal glands in high levels in response to stress. Small doses of cortisol are good – giving us bursts of energy to survive our “fight or flight” response.

Our bodies were designed to relax and rest after a stressful event, allowing cortisol levels to drop and return to normal. Unfortunately, in our always-on-the-go lifestyle today, we do not take the time to slow down and recover. Instead we throw ourselves into a state of chronic stress.

Prolonged, heightened levels of cortisol in our bloodstream have very negative effects – impairing mental performance, suppressing thyroid function, upsetting blood sugar balance, raises blood pressure, increases abdominal fat causing a plethora of other issues, and lowering immunity and inflammatory response.

The BEST Investment I’ve Made for My Health & Wellness

March 11th, 2014

“”Hi!  My name is Brenna and I am now – literally – exploding with health!

I remember first being introduced to Wayne Garland’s supplements when my son was a baby. I confided in my girlfriend Brooke about my stress, insomnia and accompanying heart palpitations – all of the “fun” stuff that goes along with stress!

She’d met Wayne and had been taking his 5-HTP Formula for a long time.

I was shocked to hear that she had stress issues, because she always seemed to be well-rested, calm, and a generally-go-with-the-flow type of person. Alas, she shared that such was not always so, but that she’d been taking Wayne’s mega-nutrients and 5-HTP for years. She told me she’d never gotten sick while she was faithful to his products.

Being a stressed out, full time working, single mother, I was desperate for something that would keep me healthy and help me manage stress. I hated the thought of going to a doctor just to be given an anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications.

So, I skeptically, but hopefully, order my first 5-HTP supplements. The first night I took the 5-HTP, I was able to sleep and was pleasantly surprised to find out there weren’t any weird hangover feelings in the morning. I just felt … Good!

I have to say to this day, that was the BEST investment I’ve ever made for my health and wellness.

Russia’s Secret Olympic Weapon

February 12th, 2014

“At six of its nine appearances at the Olympic Games between 1952 and 1988, the Soviet team (USSR) ranked first in the total number of gold medals won, it was second on the other three occasions.”
- topendsports.com

The Russian Olympic teams had “secret weapons” for enhancing athletic performance without drugs and relieving stress of training and sustaining energy and stamina for the body, brain and central nervous system.

These powerful weapons were DMG and Rhodiola.

Mislabeled for years as vitamin B-15, DMG is an effective energy booster, stamina-enhancer and cardiovascular-building nutrient, as it makes the process of metabolism extremely fast and significantly more efficient.

Muhammad Ali used it during his reign as the heavyweight boxing champion of the world, claiming it was HIS “secret weapon” in training.

Rhodiola is a powerful adaptogenic herb, in that it has the capacity to normalize body functions and strengthen systems compromised by stress. It is able to SUPERCHARGE the DMG for a significantly more powerful effect in your body.

These “top secrets” of the Russian Olympic teams beyond doubt enhanced their athletic performances without “performance enhancing” drugs

It was particularly beneficial for relieving the extreme stresses of training and boosted endurance, energy and stamina, not just physically, but in the brain and central nervous system too.

We are excited to introduce our newest formulation combining these amazing all-natural ingredients called Nature’s Energy Secret. On Sale for a limited time!

The End of Alzheimer’s?

July 12th, 2013

I don’t use words like “earth-shattering” every day but today we are proud to re- introduce something that is truly earth-shattering.

Make sure you are sitting down, because what you are about to read, I think is the most dramatic thing I’ve discovered to “freeze” the aging process.

This discovery has tremendous benefits for the brain and the heart, quite possibly the two most important organs in our body.

Right up there at the very top of the greatest health discoveries of the past 50 years has to be Coenzyme Q10. It is the gasoline that powers the tiny engine inside every cell, the “mitochondria”.

When our cells don’t get enough fuel, they stop functioning – dead in their tracks, just like your automobile.

When people first started supplementing their diet with CoQ10, miracles started being reported, particularly for the heart and cardiovascular system, for the brain, for fighting cancer, even getting wobbly teeth to stay in the gums – the list went on and on.

Yet all this time, CoQ10 has had a shy relative, a cousin known as Idebenone. With voluminous research over the past 20 years heralding Coenzyme Q10, Idebenone was receiving attention only in Japan, where it was developed by Takeda Pharmaceuticals for the study of Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive defects.

I first came across Idebenone while working with a brain tumor client. We were looking for a way to increase production of “Nerve Growth Factor” to replenish the nerves after an unfortunate operation had gone wrong, and I made an amazing discovery.
