Don’t wait for An Asthma Attack

Asthma prevalence in Australia is high by international standards: Asthma Australia reports “about 10% of the population (2 million people) have asthma currently”. It affects one in every ten adults on current statistics from the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare. That’s over 2 million people in Australia alone! Asthma also affects about one or two kids out of 10.

Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of complex and incompletely understood genetic and environmental factors, according to the WHO 2012 report. It’s an instigative (likely to arouse a strong reaction) disorder of the airways. Its diagnosis is usually based on the pattern of symptoms and response to therapy over time. The occurrence of asthma has increased significantly since the 1970s.  (more…)

Connecting With Millennials

A decade ago, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in business who thought 20 and 30-year-olds were prime candidates as serious business partners. That has changed. Millennials, an era that starts with those reaching young adulthood around the year 2000 (actually those born anywhere from 1980 to 1999), have access to technology, communications, and publishing that simply wasn’t available decades ago.

They also have the capacity to utilise it in ever expanding and creative ways. As a result, they have much to offer in the new social media boom. Experian Marketing Services reveals latest demographic trends about these Millennials, who they call ‘the most diverse, informed and connected generation in the Western world.’ Here’s a complimentary copy of their report, Millennials come of age, can be downloaded here: http://www.experian.com/marketing-services/millennials-report.html.

Bone Spurs and Osteoporosis Issues

Hippocrates is said to have taught “Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food.” and I must say I agree wholeheartedly with him, and I wish it were still true. If life were the same today as it was then – his claim would be just as true today.

Unfortunately, today’s soils, food raising methods, lifestyle and environmental degradation have had long term impacts on the planet and all that lives on it. This means that what Hippocrates said is no longer the case. In fact, it has not been the case for many, many decades. The time for rectifying our body’s ills with simple foods is long gone.

So why is there such a growing problem with bone issues these days? Bone is constantly growing and changing. Bone is living tissue, and it’s an easy thing for many people to forget. Until, of course, something goes wrong. Most of the time, our bodies work very well at keeping the right proportion of new bone growth and old bone resorption (breakdown) in balance.

But not always. (more…)

Healing Fibroids Naturally

Fibroids in the uterus, and cysts on the ovaries are benign (not cancerous) growths, which can cause no symptoms, mild or severe symptoms of pain, bloating and/or bleeding. Christine Northrup MD says “The good news is most fibroids don’t cause symptoms, don’t require any fancy treatment, and almost never require a hysterectomy, despite what you may have heard.”

Both uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts affect 75% of women. They’re present in 25-40 percent of women in their childbearing years, and about 40 percent of women have one or more fibroids when they reach menopause. According to Dr Ramsey  the cause of both fibroids and ovarian cysts are similar – either or both oestrogen dominance and liver overload. (more…)

Market Your Business On A ShoeString!

Mark Twain once said, “Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.”

While most advertising can be expensive, the best advertising and business promotions can be accomplished via low cost methods. In fact did you know that some of the best and most effective forms are actually FREE?

In a tight economy many small businesses cut their marketing budgets as the first expense to reduce, because of cash flow concerns. However when times are tough it’s even more important to keep your business brand front and centre. No matter which marketing methods (and we recommend you use a variety) you choose as a business owner, the key is to keep your promotional efforts going, and to never depend on one form of marketing if you want long term success.

Natural progesterone

Women worldwide want to feel good, look great, and avoid the common symptoms of pain and discomfort associated with menstruation and menopause. The quest to discover solutions to the myriad of symptoms that plague woman and men is ongoing.

Yet for many decades Dr John Lee has had a positive impact on millions of women worldwide, with the education of his revolutionary study into the causes of hormonal imbalance.

He said, “It may sound too good to be true, but it’s merely a case of supplying the body with what it needs to maintain balance. You’ve read about how out of balance our estrogenic environment has become; it’s no wonder women are feeling much better when they use some natural  progesterone in the form of a simple cream.” There seem to be many benefits from using such a cream.  (more…)

A Retirement Option For Baby Boomers

Australia is being totally transformed by population ageing, along with social, economic, and policy change, and so having a home based business in one’s retirement is becoming a more and more attractive option.

We are at a critical demographic turning point because the baby boom cohort – the 5.5 million people born between 1946 and 1965 – has begun to turn 65 years of age.

With the average 50 year-old Australian estimated to have currently less than $50,000 in retirement savings, there is an obvious need to find alternative ways to either save more or generate supplemental income starting now, and continuing throughout retirement.

The Savvy Team have just the best opportunity to help you make money from wherever you are, while helping you join them in the wellness industry and thus stay young and healthy, and provide a simple cost-free system to help you do it.  (more…)

9 Things that can Mess Up Your Hormones

9 Things That Mess Up Your Hormones!

Hormonal imbalance was once considered to be only a problem associated with menopausal women. However we are now seeing alarming signs of hormonal dysfunction caused by oestrogen dominance, even in children by the age of puberty.

In the news and media nowadays – we are finally seeing more and more evidence presented on the damaging effect of chemical on the hormonal systems of the body. Take for instance the recent Washington University study finding that early menopause is linked with everyday chemical exposure. Yes, hormonal disruption casued by chemicals – something we’ve been sharing about for years in the Savvy Team!

Add this evidence to that presented definitively by the World Health Organisation in the 2012 Report . . . and it’s becoming an important choice to shop for safer alternatives.

It is crucial to remember that when oestrogen is unopposed by adequate levels of progesterone, a hormone imbalance occurs causing many undesirable symptoms. (more…)

Boron: A Trace Element Essential For Good Health

After doing one of my daughters hair analysis recently, I discovered that she was low in Boron. Investigating this element, I discovered some important facts about this essential nutrient that showed why a series of apparently unrelated health issues had arisen. Oh the wonders of our physical body!

A little reading and research showed just how amazing this mineral really is for the human body. Boron is a trace mineral, and like all trace elements is essential to human health. Again like all other minerals, Boron must be obtained from one’s diet or from supplementation. And like the other trace elements, we only require it in small – trace amounts.

While I rarely come across a multi vitamin / mineral capsule that contains Boron, I am thrilled to say that the one the Savvy Team recommend does, either via Dunaliella salina or Fucus vesiculosus. So I wondered why she was having challenges with signs of deficiency, until I discovered just how important it is in keeping fungi such as candida at bay. As my daughter had been on long-term antibiotics for ongoing dental problems, I began to connect the dots. (more…)

12 Ways To Win Through Personal Responsibility

What is personal responsibility?

It is taking conscious control of your responses to the events and circumstances in your life. You are responsible for yourself whether you like it or not. What you do with your life and what you have done already is up to you. “Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn once again to exercise his will – his personal responsibility.” Albert Einstein

The ancient Romans understood the concept of personal responsibility. It’s said that after a Roman arch was completed, the engineer who built it had to stand underneath it when the scaffolding was removed.

Like discipline, responsibility is one of those words you have probably heard so many times from authority figures that you’ve developed a bit of an allergy to it. Still, it’s one of the most important things to grow and to feel good about your life. Without it you will never develop the attributes of a leader. (more…)
