Two University Research Studies: A Lack Of Sleep Leads To Depression In Adults And Adolescents

Two University Research Studies:

A Lack Of Sleep Leads To Depression In Adults And Adolescents

  

(Calgary, AB)  Two recent studies published in the Journal "Sleep" (Issue: February 1, 2014) showed a relationship between sleep duration and depression. According to Dr. M. Safwan Badr, Presidents of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, "Healthy sleep is necessity for physical, mental and emotional well-being."

 

In the first study of adult twins... "results suggest that sleep duration outside the normal range increases the genetic risk for depressive symptoms. For those adults who slept five hours or less the genetic influence on depressive symptoms nearly doubled when compared to those adults who slept a normal sleep duration of 7 - 8.9 hours per night."

 

According to the studies lead researcher, Dr. Nathaniel Watson, associate professor of neurology and co-director of the University of Washington Medicine Sleep Center in Seattle, Wash. “...both short [and excessively long sleep] durations appear to activate genes related to depressive symptoms.” 

 

***

 

 ...a lack of sleep "results in a decrease in daytime function. It can affect your physical health by weakening your immune system . It can affect your mental health by resulting in tension, irritability, depression, confusion, and generally lower life satisfaction." [Article: Brown University Health Education Department].

 

***


 

In a second study of adolescents between the ages of 11 and 17 "... results suggest sleeping six hours or less per night increases the risk for major depression, which in turn increases the risk for decreased sleep among adolescents."
 

According to this studies principal investigator Dr. Robert E. Roberts, professor behavioral sciences in the School of Public Health at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, Texas, "... these results are important because they suggest that sleep deprivation may be a precursor for major depression in adolescents, occurring before other symptoms of major depression and additional mood disorders."

 
 
At Life Choice We Understand
 
 
When asked to comment on these two studies Life Choice CEO Dr. Eldon Dahl (ND) said, "At Life Choice we understand the importance of a good nights sleep. We understand that a goods nights rest leads to a better quality of life, increased energy levels, better concentration, a better immune system and less irritability and depression."
 

 He continued, "that is why at Life Choice, we offer a variety of therapeutic natural health products that help people get a better nights rest without the risk of addiction or the possibility of experiencing negative side effects, as is the case with many pharmaceutical drugs [sleep aids].

Arthritis: The Leading Cause Of Disability In The United States

Arthritis: The Leading Cause Of Disability In the United States


(Calgary, AB) - The term arthritis is used to refer to more than 100 related conditions. Most people assume that the disease is just minor aches and pains associated with getting older. That is not true. It is actually a complex family of musculosketeltal disorders that can affect people of all ages, races and genders. It can strike anyone at anytime, often with devastating and debilitating effects.

Arthritis brings with it a burden of pain and disability that those living with this disease must face every day. The main symptoms of arthritis are chronic joint pain, stiffness and swelling, which can result in significant disability and poor quality of life.


In the United States. aarthritis is the leading cause of disability It is actually a more frequent cause of activity limitations than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. It effects more than 50 million people. By 2030, it is estimated that 67 million Americans will have arthritis. Within 20 years the number of people with arthritis will soar.

The disease itself can take many forms, but the three most common are:

a) Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of arthritis, is a progressive degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage associated with risk factors, such as overweight/obesity.

b) Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), a systemic disease characterized by the inflammation of the membranes lining the joint, which causes pain, stiffness, warmth, swelling and sometimes severe joint damage.

c) Juvenile Arthritis (JA) is an umbrella term used to describe the many autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that can develop in children ages 16 and younger.

In Canada, the disease is also very prominent. One in six Canadians aged 15 years and older are reported to have the disease. That's over 4.6 million adults. By 2036, the number is expected to increase to an estimated 7.5 million adults. That's one in five.

Whereas in the United States, the disease ranks number one among both men and women. In Canada, it is the leading cause of disability among woman and third among men.

Other interesting Canadian arthiritic facts are: a) two out of three Canadians affected by arthritis are women; b) nearly three out of every five people with arthritis are of working age; c) within a generation, there will be a new diagnosis of osteoarthritis in Canada every 60 seconds.

At Life Choice, We Understand...

At Life Choice, we understand the burden of pain and disability that those living with this disease must face every day. We understand the chronic joint pain, the stiffness and swelling, which can result in a poor quality of life. With this in mind, Life Choice offers 4 natural therapeutic medicines that help individuals who suffer from arthritic and other joint related pain.


Life Choice's Pain Relief Products

Sweet Relief Cream  is an all-natural transdermal cream that provides relief from pain associated with backache, lumbago, strains, bruises, sprains, and arthritic or rheumatic conditions. This unique, high-quality formula includes capsaicin, eucalyptus oil, allantoin, and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which work synergistically to soothe aching muscles and joints and help to control pain. Sweet Relief also helps relieve minor skin irritations and itching.
 
DMSO  has many uses, but it is known mostly as a natural pain killer and transporter.

Then, DMSO is distributed throughout the circulatory system.

It may help relieve pain from whiplash, rheumatoid arthritis, lower back pain, migraines, muscle cramps and soreness, as well as postoperative pain.Moreover, it has been shown to be effective for boosting emotional enthusiasm for life and fighting depression.

Newsletter 4.5: A GMO Assessment; Quality Does Matter

The latest news from Life Choice!






February Alive Sale: Adrenal Capsules!

Life Choice is happy to pass Alive discounts on to our wholesale customers, but we ask that retailers would pass the savings on to retail customers, as well.

Learn more about our Adrenal capsules here.


For the past several years, GMO foods have been slowly been overtaking grocery stores. NaturalNews has been studying what goes into our food in their lab. Here are some of the results, as noted in the above linked article:

• The now-infamous "yoga mat chemical" used by Subway in their breads is also widely used across the fast-food industry. McDonald's, Chik-Fil-A, Wendy's, Arby's and many other restaurants also use the chemical azodicarbonamide which is linked to cancer. Importantly, this is not a contaminant. This is an ingredient which is intentionally added to the recipes in order for the chemical to be consumed by the masses. There is no logical reason why chemicals like azodicarbonamide need to be added to recipes of fast food breads and buns. The chemical serves no necessary functional or nutritive purpose.

• Many mainstream, popular vitamin brands are intentionally spiked with such high levels of copper that if taken on a daily basis, they will cause mental insanity and psychosis. Some of these vitamin brands are routinely advertised on television to the mainstream masses, encouraging them to consume the vitamins, many of which are manufactured by companies owned in full or part by pharmaceutical interests.

A popular dietary herb designed to improve brain performance actually contains very high levels of lead in most products we tested (which were sourced from China). Lead is a toxic heavy metal that damages brain function. In this way, people who are suffering from early dementia or Alzheimer's are actually accelerated toward brain destruction via certain herbal supplements which appear designed to deliver toxic heavy metals to the brain.

• At the same time, we found that the very same "brain herb," when grown in the USA, contains virtually no heavy metals. This is proof that the herb does not "naturally" absorb heavy metals as if by magic. Interestingly, the highest levels of brain-damaging metals are consistently found in herbs imported from China.

• Popular children's vitamins sold in nearly every grocery store and pharmacy across America are especially formulated to be incredibly toxic to developing neurology. The number of synthetic, toxic chemicals added to nearly every popular brand of children's vitamins is truly staggering, and many of them seem to be selected for their ability to target and disrupt neurological function.

• At our atomic spectroscopy lab, we have confirmed trace levels of aluminum in regular atmospheric air, confirming the fact that all agricultural soils are being inundated with aluminum which is literally falling out of the sky. . . Parts per billion concentrations of aluminum have been measured in regular atmospheric air sampled far from any building or laboratory. The result of this phenomenon is that aluminum levels are rising in nearly all soil-grown crops from which everyday food is derived. While aluminum is far less harmful than lead, cadmium or mercury, the repeated accumulation of aluminum is believed to be tied to degenerative brain disorders across the population.

• As Natural News readers already know, GM corn is engineered to grow a deadly toxin inside each and every grain of corn. This deadly toxin is then consumed by all the people who unknowingly eat genetically engineered crops via breakfast cereals, corn tortillas, corn snack chips, etc. . . the technology is promoted under the justification that it will "feed the world." Indeed it will feed the world... poison.


This is why choosing quality products is vital to health. Life Choice never uses GMO materials in our supplements, and we do not source our raw materials from China. The choice for quality products is a life and death choice, and we are choosing life.

European Study: Dementia Rates Are Dropping: Healthier Life Style, Awareness And Education Are The Key Factors

European Study: Dementia Rates Are Dropping.
Healthier Life Style, Awareness And Education Are The Key Factors.
 
 
(Calgary, AB) -  An article published in the New York Times on July 16, 2013 titled "Dementia Rate To Drop Sharply, As Forecast " points to a new study that found "that dementia rates among people 65 and older in England and Wales have plummeted by 25 percent over the past two decades to 6.2 percent from 8.3 percent, a trend that researchers say is probably occurring across developed countries and that could have major social and economic implications for families and societies."

The article went on to quote an other study "conducted in Denmark, [in which it was] found that people in their 90s who were given a standard test of mental ability in 2010 scored substantially better than people who had reached their 90s a decade earlier. Nearly one-quarter of those assessed in 2010 scored at the highest level, a rate twice that of those tested in 1998. The percentage of subjects severely impaired fell to 17 percent from 22 percent. "

These two studies are interesting; they provide evidence that goes against conventional wisdom and the suggestions by many medical professionals, public health officials and advocacy groups directors, who insisted that the number of dementia cases would continuously increase in the developed world.

When pressed on the issue, many experts on aging content that the studies only confirmed what they had suspected for some time; "that a better educated and healthier aging population, (ie. lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels; a greater awareness of cardiovascular risk factors and other vascular damage factors - which could leads to mini strokes and an increase in dementia levels etc) would, in all likelihood, lead to lower levels of dementia cases."

When asked to comment on this article and the studies, DrEldon Dahl, (ND) a trained naturopath and the owner and founder of Life Choice, said; "The human body is remarkable. If you take care of it, it will take care of you. What these studies suggests, is very similiar to what we at Life Choice have been focused on, ever since our first product was manufactured over 25 years ago.  First, to produce a therapeutic health product that helps an individual live a long,  healthy and prosperous life. And second, to help educate individuals on the many benefits of a healthy lifestyle."

He continued; "That is why at Life Choice, for over 25 years, we have been focusing on producing only the best in therapeutic natural medicines. That is why we spend the time and the energy [and a premium in cost]  in sourcing only the best raw materials to use in our production process. Why? because we know that combination works, and that if people trust us and our Life Choice brand, then they too, will live long, healthy and prosperous lives well into their 90's and 100's."
