Investing In Your Health... You'll Love The Returns

Chapter 1

Why Health?

"It's not where you start-
it's where you finish that counts."

Zig Ziglar

Far too many people worldwide are dying from diseases and suffering from illnesses that can be prevented in many cases. If these illnesses can't be prevented, they can be reversed to some degree. In an article entitled, Top 10 Leading Causes of Death in the U.S. by Hannah Nichols, she lists the Top 10 Causes of Death in the U.S. including: heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, accidents (unintentional injuries), stroke (cerebrovascular disease), Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia, kidney disease, and suicide.

Amazingly out of this top list of 10, all can be prevented with the exception of Alzheimer's and type I diabetes (juvenile-onset which accounts for about 5% of young people diagnosed with diabetes). Alzheimer's can't be prevented according to medical research. As an optimist I feel medical research just might not be aware of a cure for Alzheimer's, respectfully.

For instance, Dr. Jonny Bowden's book entitled "The Most Effective Natural Cures on Earth," explains that Huperzine A has shown promise in an ongoing phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the effectiveness of Huperzine A in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease. Huperzine A is a naturally occurring alkaloid that comes from the Huperzia serrata plant. It's also called the Chinese club moss plant. It has been used extensively in Chinese medicine for fevers and inflammation. Recently research has demonstrated that Huperzine A works in the brain in the prevention of the breakdown of a vital neurotransmitter needed for memory and cognition. Dr. Bowden recommends as added effectiveness to include Huperzine A at 60 200 mcg., Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) at 60-200 mcg., a daily antioxidant or vitamin supplement, Ginkgo biloba at 120-480 mg. in divided doses, Omega-3 fatty acids at 1-3 g per day. The National Institute on Aging is conducting these trials in about twenty-nine different medical centers and universities throughout the United States.

Also medical research from Hannah Nichols' article suggests there are procedures you can take that may help to delay the onset of acquiring dementia. It appears that the factors that increase the risk for heart disease have also been shown to increase the risk for Alzheimer's disease. In Chapter 4, I have a graph demonstrating the Alzheimer's Risk from Saturated Fat that was conducted by the Chicago Health and Aging Project. Here are a couple of health protocols you can follow to help delay the onset of Alzheimer's, as follows:

' Follow a cardiovascular protocol, for examples stop smoking

' Avoid excess alcohol

' Eat a plant-based diet with a variety of fruits and vegetables

' Stay away from red meat

I know it's hard to achieve, but try to do it gradually. If you can do cold turkey, fine. Get regular exercise (2.5 hours) 30 minutes for five days with two days off. Again, always check with your doctor first, before undertaking anything that I suggest.

There's remarkable good news for adults. Type 2 diabetes (adult-onset accounts for 90-95% of all diagnoses cases of diabetes). According to Hannah Nichols, "unlike with Type 1 Diabetes, there are numerous ways to reduce the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. A number of studies have shown that regular physical activity can significantly reduce the risk, as can maintaining a he
