Simple Steps for Boosting Energy, from the June 2013 Harvard Men’s Health Watch (amazon) (shopzilla)


Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

Some days do you feel like the Energizer Bunny with a weak batterystarting strong but unable to keep going and going? There are several ways to help boost flagging energy, like pacing activities, taking power naps, and eating healthfully, according to the June 2013 issue of the Harvard Men’s Health Watch. One thing that doesn’t work: taking overhyped dietary supplements.

Sometimes fatigue is due to a medical condition. If that’s been ruled out, here are a few basic steps to maintain energy throughout the day:

Set a steady pace: With age, the energy “battery” may not be able to store quite the charge it used to. “It’s fully charged but it’s smaller and you have fewer hours of energy in it,” says Dr. Fabiny, chief of geriatrics at Cambridge Health Alliance and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “If you try to do all the things you did in the past, you could end up feeling tired.” Instead of burning through the battery in two hours, spread it out between morning tasks, afternoon tasks, and evening activitieswith rest and meals between.

Take a walk: When daytime fatigue stems from chronic sleeplessness (insomnia), napping can make it worse. Instead of napping, get up and take a walk. For people who sleep well at night, a 20- to 30-minute power nap may work wonders.

Fuel up: Sugary bakery treats deliver plenty of calories to rev up energy in the morning, but the body tends to metabolize them quickly. The result is often a sinking blood sugar level and fatigue. Instead, eat a breakfast or lunch with protein and fiber and moderate carbslike low-fat yogurt with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins, and honey. The body burns a carb-fiber-protein mix more gradually. And don’t skip meals: Your body needs a certain number of calories to get through the work of the day.

Skip the supplements: Don’t believe claims that the widely hyped supplement known as DHEA is an anti-aging supplement. “There is absolutely no evidence that DHEA provides any benefit,” Dr. Fabiny says. Taking extra B vitamins doesn’t boost energy either. The same can be said for iron supplements, and getting too much iron can actually be harmful. Get your vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients the old fashioned wayin food.

    Four Steps to Feeling Alive After 55: Dr. Daniel Thomas, Expert in Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine Outlines What Makes People Feel Like They Are 30 Again (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Lake Mary, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

    As many researchers and scientists strive to find cures for common age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease, many people in their 50s and 60s who are relatively healthy can still feel weak and tired. Now, there is a new four-pronged approach from Dr. Daniel Thomas, a Lake Mary, Florida physician who specializes in metabolic and nutritional medicine. This new program is designed to help people feel energetic and youthful regardless of age. All of this is done sans synthetic pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine is an important field that focuses on the prevention and treatment of age-related decline. It is well supported by peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals, and utilizes individualized, evidence-based protocols that address the very source of the problem in individual patients.

    The traditional medical view of aging is one that expects you to eventually suffer from inevitable complications and a steady decline in energy and quality of life. The truth is nobody wants to get or feel old. says Dr. Thomas. After studying metabolic and nutrition for many years, Ive helped my patients regain their strength, vitality and return their bodies to a more optimal state.

    Metabolic and Nutritional Medicine combats the key underlying causes of disease and premature aging including hormone deficiency, oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, cellular membrane degradation, insulin resistance, and also promotes the bodys mechanisms of self-repair by stimulating the production of stem cells.

    Dr. Thomas four-pronged approach includes the following:

    Natural Hormone Therapy
    Detoxification
    Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies
    Lifestyle Modification

    I am grateful to Dr. Thomas who helped me to feel young again. I recommend (the program) for men and women who want to feel stronger, healthier and younger. It sure works wonders for my well-being, said Diana D., a patient of Dr. Thomas.

    1. Prescription Natural (Non-Synthetic) Hormone Therapy: Around age 40, many people begin to lose the ability to produce sufficient levels of hormones, until it reaches a point where it is difficult to keep up with the demands of daily living. The quality of life once took for granted, slowly slips away. Millions of men and women are living with sub-optimal hormone levels and do not even realize it. Restoring hormones to healthy physiologic levels is one of the safest and most effective ways to protect the body and brain as one ages.

    2. Detoxification: The fact is, says Dr. Thomas, “we live in a toxic world and our bodies are under constant attack from disease-promoting free radicals. Reducing the burden of these harmful substances is crucial in order to keep your body young and healthy. Our program provides targeted support to enhance the function of the liver in two phases.”

    3. Correcting Nutritional Deficiencies: One of the most important things people to enhance overall health is to maintain a healthy diet. The notion that food can be the answer to many ills is not new it goes back thousands of years. However, studies have shown that many of fruits and vegetables are relatively low in essential phytochemicalsnatural compounds with the potential to reduce the risk of major diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia. The program teaches patients how to eat in order to bring back necessary phytochemicals, and learn which vitamin supplements can truly increase your health and longevity so that people do not waste time or money on vitamins or supplements that do not work or may do harm.

    4. Lifestyle Modification: “Engaging in regular physical activity is one of the most important things one can do for your health,” says Dr. Thomas. “Our program includes a personalized fitness plan that takes half the time and offers twice the results. Our program also includes restoring sound sleep and effectively reducing stress, both of which may be more important that diet and exercise for health and longevity.”

    Ironically, Americans have gotten so used to seeing unhealthy people, they think its normal. We need to understand that the normal state of humans is not being sick, not taking countless medications, and not visiting the doctors office on a frequent basis, says Dr. Thomas.

        Likewise Skincare, Producer of Oily Skin Moisturizer, Comments on Article Which Reveals Steps to Care for Oily Skin (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 09, 2012

        On November 9, Likewise Skincare, a producer of oily skin moisturizer, comments on an article published by Reporter News which discusses various tips to help those with oily skin attain a healthy complexion.

        Reporter News states, ?While the one benefit of having oily skin is your skin ages better than those who have dry skin, and wrinkles form later in life because of the oil, all the other side effects make it almost not worth it.? The article goes on to report various methods to help combat oil buildup. In addition to a good cleanser, the article recommends using blotting sheets. According to the article, ?The best way to remove the midday oil buildup is with blotting sheets. These compact sheets absorb oil, allowing the unwanted shine to disappear.? Reporter News goes on to state that facial tissues or clean toilet seat covers can be inexpensive alternatives to purchasing blotting sheets.

        The article continues by explaining that moisturizer can be beneficial to those with oily skin. According to Reporter News, ?This allows moisture to penetrate the skin from an outside source, allowing your body to create less to supplement the amount it thinks you need.?

        According to Lisa Shariat, a representative for the scientific skincare brand Likewise Skincare, ?Those with oily skin shouldn?t shy away from using moisturizer. Although some may believe moisturizer won?t benefit an oily complexion, this is absolutely untrue. There are skincare products out there that can cater to oily skin. In fact, Likewise Skincare produces an oily skin moisturizer that is specially formulated with azelaic acid which will help control oil build up.?

        In addition to a great cleanser, blotting sheets and a proper moisturizer, the article also recommends using a pressed powder makeup to combat shine. Reporter News states, ?For ladies who wear makeup, a matte powder is the way to go. Adding a liquid foundation does not complete the same task as a moisturizer.? The article goes on to state, ?[P]owders easily can be layered to absorb the oil and not look heavy.?

        Likewise Skincare was founded by board-certified dermatologist and President of Likewise, Inc., Dr. Julie Pena. Likewise daily moisturizers are all-in-one but not one-fits-all. Each moisturizer is formulated with skin-balancing toners to work with your specific skin type. The moisturizers use a combination of anti-aging antioxidants, ultra-protective zinc oxide and water-resistant ingredients to keep you protected.
