My Amazing Recovery from an Unintentioned Fall!

OMG – I forgot to place my computer bag under the table at Kathleen Gage’s workshop last week, got up to get coffee and SPLAT!!  I landed on the right side of my leg and twisted my foot under heels that I should not have been wearing.

Embarrassing?  Oh, YES!  Painful?  DOUBLE YES!!!  Most of the day was spent at the workshop with ice on my propped up leg.  To leave at the end I had some wonderful help from 2 lovely participants and I went on to Beaverton to my healing session with Master Soul. read more -->

Preventing the Causes of Aging and Protecting our Cells

Q: What are some key causes of aging and what you can tell us about YOUTH Skin Care and how it helps?

What comes to mind is the science behind YOUTH; one of the key aspects is that it’s formulated to address the key causes of aging. Our skin is constantly under assault from the environment, and free radical damage accelerates aging of our skin. So to be effective you have to have a technology that protects the skin against those assaults. But in addition, a lot of the latest anti-aging science revolves around the skin’s regenerative processes. When you look deeper, our skin produces collagen and elastin; these are proteins in the skin that keep our skin supple, keep it firm, and prevent wrinkles from forming. But after the age of 20 our skin produces less collagen and elastin every year, and over the course of a lifetime that has a dramatic impact on our skin. Up to 80 percent of the thickness of our skin is lost as we age. So if there is a way to intervene in that loss as we age, we have a really effective scientific approach—and we did just that. read more -->

YOUTH Skin Care – Revolutionary

Have you ever wondered how safe the products are that you put on your skin?  Do all of those “anti-aging” products actually work? Is purity and science behind the products you use important?

Here is some Q&A that helps us understand the “Why?” we might want to change brands and have fabulous results!  I will be doing several blogs with answers to different questions we all have. First let’s start with: read more -->

Acid Reflux – Oh NO!!

Years ago my former husband John had surgery because of a bleeding ulcer.  Afterwards the gastroenterologist told him he would be on Protonics for the rest of his life.  The internist agreed.

Just yesterday, speaking with 4 other women, Acid Reflux issues came up with 3 of them!!!  I thought this blog was a perfect subject, as a result.

John was off the medicine in 2 weeks!!  We did our research and also spoke with Dr. Richard Brouse.  Here is a current article by him on Acid Reflux.  May it help anyone suffering.  Call me for more information read more -->

Interview on Portland Community TV: Joan Lubar – Rock & Roll at Any Age!

What would it look like if you could feel fit and fabulous whether you are 40, 50, 60, 70 or beyond?

How many people begin their decline into fear of aging, attributing every ache and pain to getting older, even at age 40?  Have you seen the “Over the Hill” birthday decorations and favors?  People use these for those having birthdays over 40!!   People – get REAL!!!!

Much of the aches and pains are what I like to call “accelerated aging” because we haven’t taken the best of care of our attitudes and our bodies.  Does that mean you have done something wrong to be where you are today?  No, for most it is not knowing the options, unfortunate circumstances or not taking responsibility for our health. read more -->

Heart Attack – True or False

Heart Attack True-False Question

Which of the following could be an early warning sign of a heart attack?
A. Anxiety___
B. Nausea___
C. Jaw pain___
D. Fatigue___
E. Sweat___

Answer: All of them, again (are you onto us?).  “It’s hard to parse some of these symptoms because women tend to be juggling so much as a matter of course,” says Arnett. Three questions to ask : is this a new symptom? Did it appear suddenly? Does it resolve if I rest for a few minutes? “When in doubt, call an ambulance,” she says “If the worst case scenario is wasting time at the hospital, that’s far than than the alternative.” read more -->

True or False- Day 5 – Are you a Workaholic?

Day 5

Attention workaholics: How many hours can you clock each week before your heart pays a price?
A. 45___
B. 50___
C. 55___
D. 60___

Answer: A. When researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Centers and the University of St Thomas in Houston analyzed data on more than 1,900 people, they found that among people who worked 45 hours per week for a decade or more, each additional hour meant greater risk of heart disease. Risk climbed 16 percent when people put in 55 hours and 35 percent for 60 hours. read more -->

Day 4 – Which Do You Choose?

Day 4
I have been at a conference so I got behind.  I’ll be catching up this week!
Which is the best choice here?

Your friend just betrayed you big time! What’s the heart healthiest way to manage your anger?
A. Tell her off___
B. Run it off____
C. Walk it off___
D. Find consolation in Ben and Jerry’s___

Answer: C Taking a walk calms the fight or flight response, as do cool down activities like stretching and deep breathing. Intense physical activity, on the other hand, can push your heart into the danger zone. “Anger triggers an adrenaline response that reduces blood flow to the arteries,” says Donna Arnett, PhD, dean of the University of Kentucky College of Public Health. “Strenuous exercise in this state is incredibly taxing on the heart.”  An Australian study found that the risk of a heart attack was more than eight times higher when patients had been very angry in two hours before the onset of symptoms, while another recent study showed that the risk tripled in those who experienced anger and heavy exertion in the hour before. read more -->
