If you are Stressed you must try Ashwagandha-the Powerful Adaptogenic Herb




ashwagandha is an adaptogenicAshwagandha, is an adaptogenic herb popular in Ayurvedic medicine that has shown incredible results for lowering cortisol and balancing thyroid hormones. This herb also benefits your adrenals and helps to prevent adrenal fatigue. Adaptogenic herbs work with your body to bring you back into balance whether your levels are high or low.

In a recent article published by Dr. Frank Lipman he explains how these herbs work; “Adaptogens work a bit like a thermostat. When the thermostat senses that the room temperature is too high, it brings it down and when the temperature is too low, it brings it up. Adaptogens can calm you down and boost your energy at the same time without overstimulating. By supporting adrenal function, they can help counteract the adverse effects of stress and normalize body imbalances. They help cells eliminate toxic byproducts of the metabolic process, access more energy and utilize oxygen more efficiently.”

Intestinal Repair Capsules to the Rescue

Do you sometimes experience discomfort in your tummy and you don’t know why?

Perhaps you try and relate it to something you’ve eaten? Maybe you ‘over’ ate, partied hard or are under a lot of stress …. could be many reasons but you don’t really know what it’s all about and what’s worse is that it doesn’t go away as quickly as you expected.

Intestinal Repair Caps BiogenesisThat’s when Intestinal Repair Capsules are the perfect answer to help get rid of your symptoms, no matter what caused the sudden symptoms you experience.


When you look at the ingredients in this great formula you can tell why.

To start with it has 2000 IUs of Vitamin A Palmitate, the one that is absorbed better by the body and known to help nausea and diarrhea and 100 IUs of Vitamin E Succinate. This type of Vitamin E is a form of vitamin E that contains a chemical alpha-tocopheryl known to have antioxidant effects that can help counteract any harmful toxins you may have been exposed to.

Then there’s Glutamine, which is an amino acid used as fuel by the cells that line the intestines to keep them healthy. It has been shown to heal Leaky Gut. Glutamine levels can be depleted when the body is under prolonged stress leaving you vulnerable to Leaky Gut.

In addition to Glutamine this product has other standout ingredients such as:

N-acetyl glucosamine
It helps to heal the tight junctions in the gut. These are the spaces between the intestinal cells. The health of these cells is crucial. When they are not functioning healthy, food particles can leak out of the intestines and get into the blood stream. This is toxic to our systems and know as Leaky Gut Syndrome.

A very potent antioxidant. Antioxidants fight against free radicals which are the chemically reactive compounds that damage cell membranes and DNA and also cause cell death. It helps to lessen the effects of oxidative stress on the body. Oxidative stress takes place in all of us but is increased by things like a poor diet, high levels of stress, a lack of sleep and exposure to chemical toxins.

Cat’s Claw
Helps reduce pain and inflammation. Dr Axe says that cat’s claw is one of the best antiviral herbs to boost the immune system and fight infection. It’s used to treat many digestive disorders like colitis, diverticulitis, gastritis, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers and leaky gut.

High in fiber, vitamin C and folate and also helps with pain related to inflammation. 

Has a role in healing the gut because it forms a major part of the mucosal layer in the GI tract. It works to help heal inflamed, damaged soft tissues of the gut.

Zinc Glycinate
Helps to promote healing and strengthen the immune system. It promotes a feeling of well being and reduces stress.

If your symptoms are persistent or if you suspect you have Leaky Gut Syndrome, you can always take the easy to administer Genova Lab Intestinal Permeability home urine test to find out more.

Guide to Happiness

A Guide to Happiness – Self Help Book by Alan Shein

Notes from the Author:

A Guide to Happiness book by Alan Shein

A Guide to Happiness book by Alan Shein

People from all walks of life see me to help resolve their anxieties, stress, fears, lack of confidence and many other issues. When I advised my clients that in addition to our sessions to also read Self-Help and Motivational books, the majority of them kept telling me that they wished there was a Self-Help and Motivational book that got to the point from the very beginning and that offered easy to find tools and techniques that addressed their specific issues, instead of theory about problems they may not be currently facing.

I took note of what they said and to fulfill their request wrote “A Guide to Happiness.”
To me this is more than a book, it’s a mission. I have seen so many clients transform their lives using the tools and techniques described in the book that it is incumbent on me to share them with a broad audience.

One of the many aspects I address in ‘A Guide to Happiness’ as a way to increased happiness is tranquility.

Resolving of a majority of our personal situations and attainment of happiness is often facilitated and accelerated by having a tranquil frame of mind. Sometimes, life throws curved balls and challenges at us. However, if you catch them with tranquility, you are more likely to respond in a clear and logical manner. A state of tranquility will keep you in control and in the present or as it is also referred to, ‘the now’.

Alan Shein - author of 'A Guide to Happiness'

When in a tranquil and relaxed state, there is far less tendency to over-react or say something that you will later regret. Equally important, when in this frame of mind, you are being kind to your body This happens because tranquility causes a reduction of the stress hormone, cortisol, from flooding into your body and harming your immune system.

Feeling tranquil and relaxed frees you to enjoy increased well-being, happiness and optimism. This state also tends to reduce physical stress and tension which can cause all sorts of mental, emotional and physical problems.

Practicing the quick techniques and tools offered in ‘A Guide to Happiness’ will help you be on your way to experiencing a life filled with a heightened sense of peace and serenity. When those curve balls come out of nowhere, you will be better prepared to catch them.

Tranquility makes for an easier and happier day.

Happiness isn’t a luxury: it is a necessity for each and every person.

Take it from a Doctor: Four Surprising Ways to Treat Crohn’s Disease

Surprising Ways to Treat Crohn's Disease

Living with Crohn’s disease or other inflammatory bowel diseases can be stressful. Add in work, doctor’s appointments, and not feeling well, and it’s a recipe for disaster.

When the body is stressed, blood is shunted away from your midsection and moves peripherally, to your arms and legs. This leads to decreased oxygenation of the gut and decreased metabolism. Stress also unleashes an army of hormones, which can lead to a flare in bowel symptoms. While you can’t eliminate all stress, you can change your habits to reduce its effects on a daily basis.

Here are four surprising ways to treat Crohns Disease by managing stress:
