Do you believe it is April already? So many changes are about to take place. Everyone starts spring cleaning and preparing for gardens, weddings and outdoor fun. I love seeing people clean up their yards in preparation for bursting colors with plants and flowers. Even inside our offices, we are giving the reception and store area a fabulous facelift. I didn’t even have to use the NuFace or LED Light Therapy Machines to do it! (My attempt at a joke) Chad has been creating wall menus, painting, adding permanent shelves as well as a TV to display our pictures, which offesr you something to view if you have to wait. Stop in and visit our new menus and check out our new look!
Need More Energy? Want to recharge your empty tanks? Want to get out and get going again? It could be as simple as Electrolytes or as complicated as dehydration and adrenal fatigue. Most get tired of trying to figure it out for themselves. Reading all the latest info on the magic-this or fabulous-that in hopes of finding something that will help them. Give up the search and stop spending your hard earned dollars on a guessing. You know we have the antidotes and Marge is happy to find the right one for your individual needs.
The Reasons for So Many Bathroom Trips
Some of you complain that you are always running to the bathroom to “pee”. I want to share why this happens and it involves the one area you don’t want me to talk about, Your Diet. We eat lots of carbohydrates, which is the most powerful stimulator of insulin. Your liver has a limited storage for storing glucose from carbs as glycogen that is used to replenish blood sugar levels. This reserve can get used up rapidly in a 24 hour time period. Without an adequate reserve your body is unable to effectively break down fats and that leaves behind “ketones”. These can be used by the brain in a pinch, but they are not the preferred energy source. Your body consistently tries to get rid of these ketone bodies and I will give you one guess how it does it? If you guessed through urination, you are correct! When you go often not only are you eliminating excess, undesired “ketones,” you are losing precious electrolytes causing fatigue and possibly low blood pressure. If you do not keep a decent balance in your body, it will start to break down your own precious muscle proteins to make more glucose. Without adequate supplies of glucose, you can also become very irritable and unable to think straight. So you end up fatigued, irritable, more muscle weakness and having to “pee” all the time. So, to cut down the number of trips you will need to cut down the amount of carbs and sugars you consume. And that is one reason why you “pee” all the time!
