Mature Women’s Health & Wellbeing

Mature Women's Health & Wellbeing can benefit from special attention both to dietary intake and specific supplementation during middle age and beyond. The female body needs additional dietary support during the menopause, which usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 (see menopause section for greater detail). Statistics tell us, it is interesting to note, that in western nations the onset of female menopause occurs on average at age 51.

It is therefore a time when it is important to recognize and pay diligent attention to dietary needs, taking simple steps such as ensuring that potassium-rich foods are plentiful as cooked vegetables, fruits and raw salads. Potassium helps to balance sodium levels, and reduce this mineral's potentially less desirable effects on heart function, bone health, mood and emotions, and water retention. Sodium is usually taken in as table salt, at the table or in manufactured foods.

Immune support – Ginger plus Turmeric Tea.
Cut off about one half inch of ginger, peel it and chew it slowly for as long as it takes as you do this you will feel it working through the membranes, throat, secreting opening up the chest and sinuses etc.
The secreting is very important so chew slowly.

Then take a cup or mug of warm water, add a tea spoon of Turmeric powder, grind in some black pepper and add a tea spoon on honey this boosts the immune system. People that were coming down with flu like symptoms and pain took it 3 times per day for 5 day but the symptoms disappeared day 1.

My daily recipe is: Chew Ginger first thing in the morning, Chew Ginger and make the Turmeric Tea before I go to bed. It has many health benefits taking it this way.

Immune support II.
My friends in India have been taking the following which is an amazingly powerful and they tell me it is stronger than hydroxychloroquin. A little more work but amazing results and you don't have to chew the ginger.

Grated Ginger, 1 tablespoon full
Cinnamon, 1/3 tea spoon
whole black peppercorns about 6
Cumin 1/3 teaspoon
Cloves about 6
Turmeric 1/3 teaspoon

You can up the amount of Turmeric, Cumin and Ginger if you wish.
Boil the above for 15 minutes then allow it to cool down and drink
add basil leaves if you have them and you can also add a teaspoon of honey if you wish after it has cooled down.

The above recipe is per person.

There is also and Indian drink called Giloy Juice which is very powerful juice Patanjali Giloy Juice you can get it in 500ml bottles from Amazon it also comes in tablets and powder, I use the juice as it works faster and I use the powder in my shake.

Superbugs and Coronavirus

Dear Customers,

I am writing this from Thailand where there is no hysteria around the Coronavirus. Yes, they are taking precautions, but they have no fear. The health department here has asked that people working in hotels who interact with the public wear masks. Other than that, they are asking people to eat a healthy diet.

Over the years, we have seen the emergence of "superbugs" and viruses, like the present Coronavirus, that have the potential to affect individuals worldwide.

When it comes to illness, our mindset tells us that we are open to catch certain viruses or illness from others, from the environment, that we have a family tradition to particular diseases due to our genetic inheritance. However, current studies in consciousness have shown that we have the capacity to be healthy regardless of our external circumstances or family.

I have come to believe that when we experience illness in our lives, there is something out of wack vibrationally, thereby causing this dis-ease. It is for each of us to look and see if the vibrational energy is flowing fully and freely throughout our body. If the energy is not flowing, we are compromised, which decreases our immunity to stave off viruses/illness.

If you want some assistance with keeping your immune system working at peak performance, I offer the following suggestions:

Meditation, Breath Work, Diet.

No fast food. Eat real, wholesome food. Your shake in the morning is important and sets you up for the day.

Exercise – walk in the park, touch and feel the vibration of Mother Earth as you walk on the grass; feel the trees and plants around you.

If you feel you need extra immune support, I recommend the following supplementation:

If you feel a cold coming on, take 4 capsules of Symbiotics Colostrum Plus and one dropper full of Cat’s Claw by Herb Pharm in a quarter glass of water. ( If you feel a cold coming on, take 3 times within 24 hours. This works, as those of you who have been our tours with me will attest to. Otherwise use it as an immune support.)

If you want to take something everyday, take one Japanese Organic Garlic each morning, available from Amazon. This works with amazing results.

To support your immune system, I recommend the following Whole Food supplements available from matrixnutrients.com. All of these products are within your bloodstream within 20 minutes.

Vitamin C is a must Whole Food Matrix nutrient. Do not take Vitamin C made from ascorbic acid as you are only wasting your money. Your body will only absorb approximately 11% of the chemically synthesized form, as opposed to our natural Whole Food Vitamin C from Matrix Nutrients. You will absorb a minimum of 85% of this within 20 minutes of taking it, because it is a Whole Food pure form of Vitamin C.

EFAs or Essential Fatty Acids: The term ‘essential’ in nutrition as applied to ‘essential fatty acids’ (EFAs) refers to omega-6 and omega-3 which are polyunsaturated fatty acids. These are required by the body to achieve optimum human health, but they need to be ingested as the body is unable to manufacture them. These are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids that play a structural role in cell membranes. EFAs are necessary for the normal function of the immune system. Essential fatty acids are required for proper brain function and the optimum production of energy.

Selenium, Iodine and Vitamin B12: This formula contains some important nutrients which are hard to obtain from the soil and our foods, and are not very bio-available in other forms. Selenium is an especially important micro mineral and a powerful antioxidant. It helps support the immune system, nervous system, cardiovascular system, thyroid function, metabolism, skin health, and hair & nails.

For general well-being and energy support, take Matrix Nutrients Multi Vitamin & Mineral which has been specifically formulated to help your body obtain its optimum level of nutrients.

As these superbugs/viruses enter our environment, there are two essential oils which are amazing at fighting any superbug:

  • Oregano Essential Oil
  • Black Seed Essential Oil

Both of these oils are amazing and carry vibrationally a more conscious energy recognized by the body than antibiotics.

Ginger Essential Oil is also said to be great, but I have not personally used that.

To ingest essential oils, make sure you are taking a food-grade therapeutic single oil, not a blend. Take 4-6 drops in about half a glass of water and drink down.

The best oils I have found come from:

All of the above suggestions are from my own experiences over the years. I am not diagnosing for you in any way, just offering suggestions for you to look at and do your own research.

If you have any questions please email or telephone me and I will be happy to chat with you.

Blessings, love and light,

Finbarr

Shine On Me, Vitamin D

Health Benefits of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is actually a misnomer for the steroid compound calciferol, of which there exist two forms in nature: D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholcalciferal). Vitamin D2 is found in vegetarian sources of food, whereas the latter D3 form is synthesized on the skin in response to exposure to ultra-violet rays and is found in fish liver oil and certain dairy and meat products. There is also a synthetic form known as Vitamin D5. Cholcalciferol or Vitamin D3 is considered the most natural of the three and is readily absorbed and utilized by our cells, thus being the preferred form of this vital compound.

Of the mere 30,000 genes in the human body, Vitamin D has been shown to influence 3,000 or 10%. Studies have linked the steroid to numerous diseases ranging from cancer and autism to heart disease and arthritis. Rightfully placed in the hot seat of much recent talk in the healthcare community, Vitamin D has many important functions, the most well-known of which is maintenance of bone health. But the benefits of this hormone extend much farther and are now finally claiming their proper attention as new studies are published daily.

So what does Vitamin D do?

Vitamin D works synergistically with calcitonin and parathyroid hormone (PTH) to maintain bone health. Together they regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorous from the small intestine according to our needs. They can also regulate these blood calcium levels by signaling the kidneys to release or withhold calcium in the urine. Additionally, Vitamin D stimulates osteoclast activity when necessary and assists with normal calcification of bone. It is crucial for normal growth and is especially important for the normal growth and development of bones and teeth in children. Severe deficiency of Vitamin D in children can cause rickets, a bone-deforming disease, and osteomalacia meaning "soft bones" in adults. Osteomalecia is similar to osteoporosis, another disease on the bones linked to a Vitamin D deficiency. With both, bones become weak and prone to fractures.

Vitamin D has other roles in the body, including modulation of cell growth, neuromuscular and immune function, and reduction of inflammation. Many genes encoding proteins that regulate cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis are modulated in part by vitamin D. By keeping tabs on cellular growth, Vitamin D aids in the prevention of many cancers, which are discussed in more detail later in this article.

Along with Vitamin K, Vitamin D helps to maintain healthy blood vessels and assists with blood clotting and the inflammatory response when these are breached (by injury).

Vitamin D is specifically associated with autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) and has been shown to be extremely beneficial to patients suffering with thyroid disorders of various degrees. Its method of action with regard to the thyroid is balancing the cell-mediated and humeral arms of the immune system through strong influence of T-regulatory (Th3) cells.

"Mary Shomon: Why do you feel vitamin D is so important to thyroid sufferers?

"Richard Shames, MD: This particular vitamin is so crucial to thyroid function that its status has now been elevated by researchers to co-hormone. We now know that the variability of thyroid to work or not work in your body is dependent upon the presence of Vitamin D, making it not just of benefit, but absolutely essential."

Taken directly from a recent paper released by the NCBI: Vitamin D functions are not limited to skeletal health benefits and may extend to preservation of insulin secretion and insulin sensitivity. Achieving Vitamin D sufficiency has shown beneficial in patients with pre-diabetes and reduces risk of the disease.

Vitamin D and Cancer

More than 200 epidemiological studies have linked Vitamin D deficiency to 16 types of cancer. A study by Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., internationally recognized research scientist and vitamin D expert, found that about 30 percent of cancer deaths — which amounts to 2 million worldwide and 200,000 in the United States — could be prevented each year with higher levels of vitamin D. The protective effects of Vitamin D are attributed to several key physiological functions: increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer), reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells, causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation) and reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous.

Vitamin D vs. Colds & Flus

Vitamin D regulates the expression of certain immunological genes that govern your body's defense system against colds and flus. A 2010 study showed that children taking 1200 IU of Vitamin D3 per day were 42% less likely to contract influenza, compared to children taking a placebo. A recent study put out by the Journal of the American Medical Association denounced Vitamin D supplementation, claiming that it is completely useless against colds, upper respiratory infections, and influenza since there was only a 10% reduction in the rate of infection from experimental to control group. Dr. Cannell, founder of the Vitamin D Council, published a report soon after the release of JAMA's, however, explaining that these conclusions are a gross misinterpretation of the data generated by the study.

All but 13 of the over 900 participants started with and kept blood serum levels above 20ng/ml. Through his extensive work on the subject, Dr. Cannell has found that a blood serum level of 20ng/ml or higher is all that's required to lower the rate of respiratory infection. Until this level reaches between 70 and 100ng/ml (therapeutic), the incremental increases are not associated with any significant increases in bodily immune response, although levels of 50-70ng/ml are considered optimal for other benefits to the human body. Consequently, a general statement denouncing the beneficial properties of Vitamin D is both uncalled for and invalid with regard to these results.

In conclusion, maintenance of optimal Vitamin D blood serum levels are fundamental to warding off the cold and flu, however megadosing has not been shown to be very effective in boosting immune function; rather, therapeutic dosing is more beneficial for chronic diseases such as cancer and CVD. Avoiding Vitamin D deficiency is the number one thing one can do for flu prevention.

Vitamin D Deficiency – How Do We Level?

In a study reported by The New England Journal of Medicine, there are indications that Vitamin D deficiency is much more widespread than previously thought, especially in older adults. In a group of people of whom few had risk factors for Vitamin D deficiency, 57% were found to have below-normal levels. 67% of those reporting intake below the RDI had deficiencies categorized as moderate to severe. More recent postulations estimate that 85% of the American public is deficient in vitamin D and over 95% of African American or deeply pigmented individuals are deficient. During winter months, average serum levels in the US are between 15-18ng/ml – known to be a severe deficiency state.

Where you live in relation to the equator has a severe impact on your risk for Vitamin D deficiency, as well as your risk for developing cancer – a correlation well-established by numerous observational studies. According to Dr. William Grant, one of the top vitamin D researchers in the world, the cancer rate in Iceland is 90 per 100,000 people per year. Those in the tropics, meanwhile, have rates of 25 per 100,000. And regardless of location, your risk changes relative to the time of the year and the amount of sunshine you receive in a day.

Am I Vitamin D Deficient? How Can I address A Deficiency?

Severe deficiency of Vitamin D can cause rickets in children and osteomalecia in adults. Lesser degrees of deficiency may be characterized by loss of appetite, a burning sensation in the mouth and throat, diarrhea, insomnia, visual problems and weight loss. Most people suffering from Vitamin D deficiency however, do not experience many – or any – acute symptoms. Rather, the symptoms are an effect on long-term health, elevated risk of developing serious and chronic diseases, and having a lowered immune system among other suppressed body functions.

The best way to test for Vitamin D deficiency is by a blood test called 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D. You can order this test with your primary care physician.

Since such a high percentage of our population is deficient according to researchers, chances are you are deficient – especially if you live in the upper third of the continental US or an area of the world along similar latitude. The optimal way to prevent Vitamin D deficiency is ensuring adequate sunlight exposure on your bare skin. Be cautious however, that you do not reach the point of sunburn, as this can have serious negative impacts on your health and promote skin cancer. Use the appropriate amount of non-chemical 30SPF sunblock for your skin tone, paying particular care to your face and shoulders.

An equilibrium occurs in white skin within 20 minutes of ultraviolet exposure, at which point further increases in vitamin D are not possible, because the ultraviolet light will actually start to degrade the vitamin D. It can take 3-6 times longer for darker pigmented skin to reach the equilibrium concentration of skin pre vitamin D. However, skin pigmentation does not affect the amount of vitamin D that can be obtained through sunshine exposure.

Oral supplementation of Vitamin D3 is recommended during winter months and for those with a determined deficiency.

At Matrix Nutrients, we recommend a maintenance dose of 1000-2000IU daily along with a diet that emphasizes Vitamin D-rich foods. Cod liver oil is an ideal source for food-based Vitamin D and A.

Our Whole Food Matrix Vitamin D supplement, provides 1000IU per tablet. Our unique formula provides the most absorbable supplemental form of Vitamin D3 available on the market today. As with all of our Whole-Food Matrix Supplements, Vitamin D (cholcalciferol, D3) is bound to protein transporters that allow our cell receptors to recognize, uptake and utilize it properly.

With a blood test-determined Vitamin D deficiency, your specific supplemental dosage may need to be increased significantly – as much as tenfold or more! However, without the proper testing we caution such megadosing as Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin with potential for toxicity at such levels if there is no need for it.

Moringa Oleifera

It's all the craze – touted on nearly every health magazine, website and show as a "miracle product," Moringa is rapidly becoming a very popular whole food supplement. But Moringa has been around for quite some time to treat and aid in the prevention of many ailments as a traditional remedy. Moringa is a plant native to the Himalaya foothills. Many parts of the Moringa plant are edible, including the young seed pods or "drumsticks", mature seeds, leaves, roots, stems, flowers and bark. It has been used for over 200 years in Asia and Africa as both food and medicine, and traces of Moringa oil have even been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs. In Jamaica, the sap is used to produce a blue dye. Moringa's medicinal and nutritional use dates back centuries and as is so often the case, mainstream healthcare has recently taken a look back at the past and brought this incredible plant to the frontlines.

Here at Matrix Nutrients, we bring our customers the most wholesome and specially harvested Moringa products available today from a domestic producer with whom we have a close and honest relationship. Not only do they specialize exclusively in Moringa products and thus have the a comprehensive knowledge on its use, sale and growth than any other business in the United States, but this company also holds dear to its heart a very important mission. They have partnered with numerous groups, individuals and non-profits to bring forth and spread knowledge about this phenomenal tree, expanding its availability worldwide so that as many people as possible can benefit from its countless supportive properties.

Pure, organic, and infused with love and care, these Moringa Oleifera products nourish body, mind, soul and world.

First and foremost, Moringa boasts a superior nutrient profile:

Minerals play an important role in the body. They come in two categories: major minerals which are needed in amounts over 100mg/day and trace minerals of which we require less than 100mg daily. Minerals are water-soluble so toxicity is extremely rare, as we excrete any excess consumed that we do not require. Deficiency, however, is all too common in both developed and developing nations. Due to environmental stresses such as pollution, industrialization and natural degradation, the mineral content of most soils used for agriculture today is severely depleted. Moringa leaves are often used to supplement the diets of mothers and children – life stages in which mineral deficiency is especially harmful.

Presently, many organizations are promoting the use and growth of Moringa in populations struggling with protein, vitamin and mineral scarcities. It is seen as a key contributor to the mitigation of malnutrition, particularly for breastfeeding mothers and children due to its beneficial effect on milk quality and production.

Antioxidants

There are over 46 antioxidants and 36 anti-inflammatory compounds all naturally occurring in the Moringa plant. These antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds within Moringa are bound to agents, which provides a synergistic and enhanced effect – thus Moringa's superior rating as an antioxidant food source.

More Moringa Facts/News

  • Moringa Oleifera hydroethanolic extracts effectively alleviate acetaminophen-induced hepatotoxicity in experimental rats through their antioxidant nature.
  • Potent anti-inflammatory action via zeatin, Quercetin, beeeta-sitosterol, caffeoylquinic acid, and kaempferol.

How Moringa Benefits You

Moringa Oleifera provides the most complete nutritional profile of any known botanical to date. This amazing whole-food supplement can be used preventatively, therapeutically and/or as a beautiful complement to your daily diet. Measured ORAC values place Moringa significantly above known superfoods such as acai, dark chocolate, garlic, blueberries, baobab, goji berries, pomegranate, red wine. Of course, that is not to say that these foods do not remain as powerful gifts to our health and vitality, but it places Moringa among such worthy companions.

Moringa's health benefits have lured copious attention from top research agencies and Universities such as:

Yale University
University of Wisconsin
Johns Hopkins University
United Nations University
Heidelberg University, Germany
University of Zimbabwe, Africa
East Carolina University
Ferrara University, Italy
Wageningen University, Netherlands
University of Calcutta, India

Among the many Scientific Journals that have published Moringa research are:

Human & Experimental Toxicology
