There have been two prominently growing trends in America the past couple of decades: our waistlines and our healthcare costs. Estimates are that since 1990, healthcare costs have tripled to now over $2.5 trillion per year. Mirroring this increase in healthcare costs has been an increase in the number of overweight individuals in this country, which is now nearly 70% of Americans. Being overweight significantly increases risk factors for developing a number of health conditions such as:
type 2 diabetes
coronary heart disease
high LDL (“bad”) cholesterol
nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
osteoarthritis (degeneration of cartilage and bone of joints)
sleep apnea and other breathing problems
some forms of cancer (breast, colorectal, endometrial, and kidney)
complications of pregnancy
menstrual irregularities, infertility
The numbers are looking grim for our next generation as well, with increasing numbers of children and adolescents becoming overweight. The size of our waistlines directly corresponds to increased healthcare costs, with obese individuals paying on average $1,430 more per year(over 42%) in healthcare costs compared to normal-weight individuals. Overweight and obese individuals account for over 9% of total healthcare costs in this country. The economic consequences of our expanded waistlines is substantial and no single intervention would have a greater effect improving health and reducing healthcare costs than an effective, affordable weight loss program.
There are no easy solutions. Diets that rely simply on reducing calories or counting points are generic, are not sustainable for people long term, and lead to perpetual weight cycling or yo-yo dieting which in itself is dangerous and a health risk. Bariatric surgeries are very expensive and associated with risks and complications. What is needed is a customized, individual approach which focuses on diet, exercise, behavior modification, stress reduction, and appetite control. In addition, often times there are other contributing factors to why it is difficult for some people to lose weight such as hormone imbalances, digestive dysfunction, environmental toxicity. Even simple aspects of nutrition such as experience and comfort preparing foods, grocery shopping habits, and social and media influences need to be addressed. Very often, it requires someone with the knowledge and experience of the complexities of nutrition and weight loss to guide and supervise patients for success to be realized in a sustainable manner.

PressRelease) – Radon causes more deaths every year than any other household hazard including fires and carbon monoxide. Every home is required to have a smoke detector, but most homes have never been tested for radon. January is National Radon Action Month. According to radon mitigation contractor Jamey Gelina, “approximately 8 million U.S. homes have elevated radon levels.”
One in 15 homes across the U.S. has elevated radon levels. With as many as 21,000 deaths each year, radon exposure is second only to smoking in causing lung cancer deaths in the United States, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The precious essential oil of Helichrysum is relatively unknown in the United States, even in natural health and wellness circles. Interest and experience with this natural healing phenomenon is growing rapidly, however and with very good reason. Helichrysum is one of the most potent, dramatically healing essential oils used in European medical aromatherapy today. As noted by Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, America’s leading medical aromatherapist, the effects of this oil are so convincing that it has never met with any kind of criticism. An essential oil so useful, even those who consider aromatherapy a pseudo-science do not challenge its wonderful effects! So what is Helichrysum oil, and how can it benefit the newcomer to aromatherapy?
With so many species of Helichrysum grown, and several essential oils distilled from these, it is important to recognize the most important of the therapeutic varieties. It is the italicum’ species of the Helichrysum plant that is mentioned with highest regard in the aromatherapy literature; moreover, the serotinum’ sub-species may be the most potent. When looking for the oil, be sure it is 100% pure, undiluted, Helichrysum italicum for best effects.
