Join Me and Well Water Global in Providing Access to Clean Water “India Style”!

 

Did you know that access to clean water is the biggest social/health problem facing our world today?

The (astounding) Facts:

  • There are between 800 million and 1 billion people that have no access to clean drinking water.
  • That’s roughly 1 in 8 people on the globe, and roughly 3 times the population of the United States.  
  • 3.5 million people die each year from drinking bad water – an astounding figure given the preventable nature of the statistic.
  • Diarrhea is the 2nd leading cause of death in infants and children. The majority of diarrheal diseases are caused by unsanitary water.
  • To put it in perspective: in the U.S. we think of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes to be the worst of the worst in terms of the number of victims they claim each year.  Combined, they claim about 1.25 million lives, roughly a mere third the amount that die each year from drinking contaminated water.  
  • The United Nations estimates that half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-related diseases and illness, and that in developing countries around 80% of all illnesses are caused by poor water and sanitation.  

The amount of suffering caused by contaminated water is literally unfathomable and altogether preventable!

  • A $40.00 donation provides clean well water for a family of four.  
  • A $100.00 donation creates a biosand filter serving 40 people for 10+ years.  

Imagine how many people we can help by building a well.  So, we will be building a community well at a school in Kenya!  Wells are a lasting impact on a community, providing the opportunity for wellness, economic growth, and education.  When clean water access is at school, children are not kept home from school to gather water, in fact they are SENT TO SCHOOL to gather the family’s water. This is a huge shift in their daily lives! It will be an added incentive to get those kids to school instead of keeping them home to help around the house. And really, education is the key to get these families out of poverty.  We’ll even receive the  exact geographic coordinates (longitude/latitude) of the well so you can look it up on the internet and know exactly where it is. That is pretty neat, huh?

Live Well…Lifestyle Solutions for a Happy Healthy You!

Leesa - Live Well cover photo

New book:  ‘Live Well’ offers Lifestyle Solutions for Happy Healthy Life!

Would feeling fantastic everyday make a difference in your life?

 

ATLANTA In a world where people seek solutions for balance, happiness and excellent health, “Live Well: Lifestyle Solutions for A Happy Healthy You!” (published by AuthorHouse) emerges to meet their healthy lifestyle needs. Leesa Wheeler, who delighted poetry lovers with her debut collection, “Melodies From Within“, learned from her life experiences that it is through simple acts that one can have the greatest impact. Because of these experiences, she is convinced that one’s health is the product of the hundreds of seemingly small choices one makes every day.

 The powerful, yet simple solutions found in “Live Well” were born from the author’s own struggle to live well in spite of the challenges she faced.  On the pages of this book, Leesa shares with you what she discovered on her own quest as tragedy turned to triumph.  As she climbed from the trenches, she realized the lifelong lesson that physical, spiritual, emotional, relational, and mental health is found along one’s journey not just at their destination.  

  In “Live Well” readers will find practical lifestyle solutions for increased health and decreased dis-ease. Throughout the book the central message rings clear: “What you eat, what products you use on your body and in your home, how you talk to yourself – it all matters!” 

 Praise for “Live Well”:

 “Do not be deluded by the apparent simplicity of this treatise. It is filled with common sense and practical advice we may all benefit from…. It is clear that many products of nature that surround us have a remarkable ability to enhance our health and lives. Let us never doubt the ability of the individual observer to share the benefits of those seemingly simple and natural methods to heal, cure and enhance our lives.”

-Daniel L. Barrow, M.D.

MBNA-Bowman Professor and Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery

Emory University School of Medicine

 

“Leesa Wheeler has done an outstanding job at helping us to understand the relationship and the importance of having a balanced diet as well as a balanced lifestyle.”

             -Robert A. Rohm, Ph.D.

International Speaker and President, Personality Insights

 

“In a world so full of processed foods, chemicals, hormones, artificial sweeteners and dyes, Leesa, truly gets it.”

-Dr. David Friedman, D.C., N.D.

CEO Chews4Health International

Author, “A Cup of Coffee with 10 Leading Chiropractors”, an Amazon #1 National Bestseller

 

“This book is simply marvelous and should be at everyone’s kitchen table, inside the fridge, in their car, and attached to their wallet!  Whenever the current of like takes you away from the truth, Leesa’s words will bring you back to a better path.”

-Donald W. Barden

International Consultant and Speaker, and author of “The Perfect Plan

11 Health Benefits of Cherries

11 Health Benefits of Cherries

Cherries are delicious, beautiful, and in season now! National Cherry Day is on July 16th in the UK. Eat this superfruit before its short growing season comes to an end.

When you eat cherries, you enjoy much more than just their amazing taste. They’re packed with antioxidants and offer many health benefits, including help with insomnia, joint pain and belly fat. Cherries could be just what the doctor ordered.

Here are 11 good reasons to start eating this powerfood today!

The Health Benefits of Cherries

 

11 Health Benefits of Cherries

1. Protection from Diabetes

Sweet cherries have a lower glycemic index of 22, lower than apricots (57), grapes (46), peaches (42), blueberries (40) or plums (39). This makes them a better choice of a fruit snack compared with many other fruits, especially for diabetics.

2. Helps You Sleep Better

Tossing and turning at night?  Cherry juice to the rescue! Drink cherry juice 30 minutes after waking and 30 minutes before your evening meal. In a study, participants boosted their melatonin intake by following this routine. Cherries are a good source of melatonin.They have also been found to help with jet lag.

Note: there is a higher level of melatonin in tart cherries compared to sweet cherries.

“There’s no diet list I’ll follow that would rule out a cherry.” – Edgar A. Guest

3. Decreases Belly Fat

Tart cherries reduced belly fat in a study. Researchers found rats that were fed whole tart cherry powder, in a high fat diet, didn’t gain as much weight or build up as much body fat as rats that didn’t.

4. Helps Ward of Alzheimer’s

The Alzheimer’s Association includes cherries as one of the memory boosting foods because they are rich in antioxidants.

5. Reduces Risk of Stroke

Tart cherries provide cardiovascular benefits. The anthocyanins, which are the pigments giving  tart cherries its red color, may activate PPAR which regulates genes involved in fat and glucose metabolism and thus, reduce risk factors for high cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes. – Research University of Michigan Health System.

6. Slows the Aging of Skin

Cherries have the highest antioxidant level of any fruit. Antioxidants help the body fight the free radicals that make us look old. Drinking one glass of tart cherry juice daily slows down the aging process, according to Scientists from the Michigan State University. Cherry juice is also recommended as an alternative treatment for other skin conditions.

7. Lowers Risk of Gout Attacks

Eating cherries lowers risk of gout attacks by 35 percent in a study with 633 gout patients, done by by Yuqing Zhang, professor of medicine and public health at Boston University. Gout patients who consumed cherries over a two-day period had a 35 percent lower risk of gout attacks, compared to those who did not eat the cherries. “Our findings indicate that consuming cherries or cherry extract lowers the risk of gout attack, the gout flare risk continued to decrease with increasing cherry consumption, up to three servings over two days.” said Zhang.

8. Reduces Muscle Pain

A cup and a half of tart cherries or one cup of tart cherry juice can reduce muscle inflammation and soreness studies suggest. A group of marathon runners drank tart cherry juice twice daily for seven days before their race. The group who drank the cherry juice group experienced less muscle pain after the race than those who drank another fruit drink.

“My heart that was rapt away by the wild cherry blossoms — will it return to my body when they scatter?”  – Kotomichi

9. Good for the Heart

Cherries are very high in potassium, which helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure and reduces the risk of hypertension. The phytosterols in cherries help reduce bad cholesterol levels.

10. Helps with osteoarthritis relief

The pain and discomfort of swollen joints were reduced when tart cherry juice was consumed twice a day for three weeks in a study of twenty women ages 40 to 70 with inflammatory osteoarthritis.

11.  Helps to Prevent Colon Cancer

Substances in tart cherries can reduce the formation of the carcinogenic chemicals that develop from the charring of hamburger. Researchers added tart cherries to ground beef patties. “The fat contents of the cherry patties were, as expected, lower than that of the control patties, whereas the moisture contents were greater.  Cherry tissue will not only slow down the oxidation deterioration of meat lipids, but will also substantially reduce the formation of heterocyclic aromatic amines.” – J. Ian Gray, PhD, Professor of Food Science at Michigan State.

Now you have many good reasons (11 to be exact!) reasons to eat cherries. I eat cherries every day when they’re in season. (Leesa recommends choosing organic cherries!)

Which Spices Fight Inflammation?

Which Spices Fight Inflammation?

Once in a while I come across a study that’s so juicy I have to share it.

A group of researchers at the University of Florida, Gainesville and Pennsylvania State set up a brilliant experiment. We’ve known that ounce per ounce, herbs and spices have some of the greatest antioxidant activities known. But that’s only ever been tested in a test tube. Before we can ask if an herb or spice has real health benefits, it is first necessary to determine whether it is bioavailable — whether the active ingredients are even absorbed. This had never been done, until now.

The researchers could have taken the easy route and just measured the change in antioxidant level in one’s bloodstream before and after consumption, but the assumption that the appearance of antioxidant activity in the blood is an indication of bioavailability has a weakness. Maybe more gets absorbed than we think but doesn’t show up on antioxidant tests because it gets bound up to proteins or cells. So the researchers attempted to measure physiological changes in the blood. They were interested in whether absorbed compounds would be able to protect white blood cells from an oxidative or inflammatory injury—whether herb and spice consumption would protect the strands of our DNA from breaking when confronted by free radicals. I cover the DNA findings in my video, Spicing Up DNA Protection. They also wondered if the consumption might alter cellular inflammatory responses in the presence of a physiologically relevant inflammatory insult. What does this all mean?

The researchers took a bunch of people and had each of them eat different types of spices for a week. There were many truly unique things about this study, but one was that the quantity of spices that study subjects consumed was based on the usual levels of consumption in actual food. For example, the oregano group was given a half teaspoon a day—a practical quantity that people might actually eat once in a while. At the end of the week, they drew blood from the dozen or so people they had adding, for example, black pepper to their diets that week, and compared the effects of their blood to the effects of the blood of the dozen subjects on cayenne, or cinnamon, or cloves, or cumin. They had about ten different groups of people eating about ten different spices. Then they dripped their plasma (the liquid fraction of their blood) onto human white blood cells in a Petri dish that had been exposed to an inflammatory insult. The researchers wanted to pick something really inflammatory, so they chose oxidized cholesterol (which is what we’d get in our bloodstream after eating something like fried chicken. If oxidized cholesterol is a new concept for you, please check out its role in heart disease progression in my video Arterial Acne). So they jabbed the white blood cells with oxidized cholesterol and measured how much tumor necrosis factor (TNF) they produced in response.

TNF is a powerful inflammatory cytokine, infamous for the role it plays in autoimmune attacks like inflammatory bowel disease. Compared to the blood of those who ate no spices for a week, black pepper was unable to significantly dampen the inflammatory response. What about any of the other spices? The following significantly stifled the inflammatory response:

  • cloves
  • ginger
  • rosemary

And remember, they weren’t dripping the spices themselves on these human white blood cells, but the blood of those who ate the spices. So the results represents what might happen when cells in our body are exposed to the levels of spices that circulate in our bloodstream after normal daily consumption—not megadoses in some pill. Just the amount that makes our spaghetti sauce, pumpkin pie, or curry sauce taste good.

There are drugs that can do the same thing. Tumor necrosis factors are such major mediators of inflammation and inflammation-related diseases that there are TNF-blocking drugs on the market for the treatment of inflammatory diseases such as osteoarthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, and ankylosing spondylitis, which collectively rake in more than $20 billion a year ($15,000–$20,000 per person per year). At that price, the side effects better be hugs and rainbows. But no, the drugs carry a black label warning because they can cause things like cancer and heart failure. If only there was a cheaper, safer solution.

The spice curcumin, the yellow pigment in turmeric, is substantially cheaper and safer, but does it work outside of a test tube? There’s evidence that it may help in all of the diseases for which TNF blockers are currently being used. So with health-care costs and safety being such major issues, this golden spice turmeric may help provide the solution.

Mushrooms (Boosting Immunity While Reducing Inflammation), nuts (Fighting Inflammation in a Nut Shell), and purple potatoes (Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Purple Potatoes) may also reduce inflammation.

Lifesyle Solutions for a Happy Healthy You!

Each person is unique and deserves a personalized approach when it comes to living healthy.  So, have you ever wondered what’s going on inside your body energetically?

A Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) evaluation detects energy changes in the body and accesses data about the body’s functional status. This technology utilizes Chinese meridian theory and modern quantum physics. MSA provides extraordinary new perspective on the state of the body’s energetic health. A MSA evaluation will show if your body’s systems are balanced energetically and what support is needed if a system is unbalanced.  What you eat, what you actually absorb from your food and supplements, what products you use ~ on your body, in your home and office, how you talk to yourself ~ it all matters! I believe that excellent health ~ not just physical, but spiritual, emotional, relational, and mental health ~ is found along your journey, not just at your destination.

15 Habits of Highly Confident People

15 Habits of Highly Confident People

 
No one is confident all the time but some people seem to exude confidence leaving others wondering “what’s the secret?”  Here are some of my observations about the habits of highly confident people.

1.  They have a strong sense of self. They know what they like and what they don’t like.  They’ve most likely built a strong sense of self by having a wide variety of experiences.

2.  They have a strong sense of personal boundaries. They don’t try to please others merely for the sake of making others happy. But, that doesn’t mean they are contrarian to boost their ego either.

3.  They learn from their past without dwelling on it. The past can play a role in helping us move forward in life, but not if we get stuck in it.

4.  They go after their goals and dreams. They may feel fear but they strive to reach their dreams anyway.

5.  They recognize mistakes are learning opportunities. They don’t beat themselves up for their mistakes, realizing that every mistake is an opportunity to learn likes, dislikes, and ways to be more successful next time.

6.  They try new things. There is an expression that experience is the best teacher.  Trying new things allows us to evolve as people.

7.  They take risks. They make informed choices even if there is risk involved.  They know the difference between a gamble and a risk.  They prepare as much as they can and then dive in for those risks they feel are worth the effort.

8.  They refuse to be victimized. One thing I learned from being a health practitioner is that everyone has had difficulties and challenges.  The highly confident person refuses to let the difficulties make them feel victimized.  Of course, we all feel sorry for ourselves sometimes but it is important not to linger in self-pity.

9.  They celebrate their successes and the successes of others. You won’t find truly confident people who are jealous and diminishing of other people’s successes.  They celebrate them.

10.  They can be alone with their own thoughts without needing to fill every minute with conversation, technologies (cellphones, e-mail, texting, etc.), pastimes, or television.

11. They trust their instincts. Instincts help guide us on our path to make the best choices for us.  Trusting these instincts helps us make better choices.

12.  They accept change. Someone once said that “change is the only constant.”  While highly confident people may not always like the changes occurring they accept them and do their best to ride the wave of change.

13.  They take care of themselves. They know that the expression GIGO (Garbage in, Garbage out) is true of the body.  They treat their body with respect by giving it high quality nourishment in the form of healthy food, fresh air, relaxation, and activity.

14.  They boost others, not demean them. Confidence and ego-tripping aren’t the same things.  Confident people don’t feel the need to put others down to build themselves up.

15.  They dont beat themselves up. Of course, no one is perfect.  Even the most confident of people have weak moments.  They dust themselves off and keep going.

What do you think are the habits of highly confident people?  I’d love to hear from you.
