There's Another Storm Brewing

586fde481200002e00ad607a

First off, we'd like to start by passing along our well wishes to anyone that was affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate, as well as thanking those who lent a helping hand to others during this wet and windy summer.

And while hurricane season is nearly over, there's another storm brewing, one that is just as dangerous to your health and well-being.

Kids are back in school, flu season has begun and winter is right around the corner. There are very few things as important as building your immune system up to do battle with all of the environmental factors you'll face over the next few months.

As such, we've decided to dedicate our first newsletter of the fourth quarter to getting you all the knowledge you need to make sure you make it through the autumn and winter unscathed.

In this newsletter you'll find helpful information about the impact of vitamin D when it comes to fighting the flu, and how it could actually be more beneficial than the flu vaccine.

You'll also find some insight on one of the most costly new health problems facing Americans, chronic fatigue syndrome. And last, but not least, we'll finish up with a delicious, immune-boosting recipe that'll be sure to keep you cool during the last days of Florida summer.

And don't forget to check out our new patient specials section for the month of October, as well as a great deal on a new line of customizable, hypoallergenic pillows we just started carrying.

Optimizing Vitamin D May Be Your Best Defense Against Flu

vitamin d

A series of recent medical trials (involving 11,000 individuals from more than 25 countries) has confirmed a 2008 study that found that people with the lowest amounts of vitamin D in their system are most susceptible to cold and flu.

What does this mean for you? It depends.

For those with relatively high levels, supplementing with more vitamin D should reduce your risk of contracting a cold or the flu by about 10%, which, coincidentally, is roughly the same amount as protection that the flu vaccine offers.

For those with low levels of vitamin D, supplementation can decrease your risk by at least half! One of the most recent trials found that "if you're vitamin D deficient to begin with, vitamin D supplementation is 10 times more effective than the flu vaccine."

Let's be honest, that's hard not to be impressed with.

So, how can can you get more vitamin D? These days environmental factors make it harder for us to convert sunlight into vitamin D, so oral supplements is your best bet. Luckily, we live in a day and age where several forms of vitamin D are available, ranging from liquid to chewable tablets.

We happen to offer several easy to absorb options here!

For more information about vitamin D supplementation and it's link to lowering risk of cold and flu, check out the links below.

Dry Brushing Helps Lymphatic, Immune Systems

LC Body-brushing 1

The skin is the body's largest organ, so maintaining its health can go a long way towards making us look and feel our best. The most important functions of the skin, however, have to do with removing waste aiding in digestion and improving circulation.

One of the best ways to take care of our skin is by dry brushing. If you haven't heard of it, you probably will soon. Dry brushing has been around for centuries and has been practiced by the Greeks and Native Americans. Not only does it help rid your body of dead skin cells, but most important, it stimulates the lymphatic system.

Stimulating the lymphatic system is important, because it is a system of tissues and organs that transport metabolic waste out of the body. When our lymphatic system is working in less than an optimum capacity, it can compromise the immune system, opening up the door to things like colds, sinus infections and the flu.

Luckily, dry brushing is the easiest, and most inexpensive, way to stimulate our lymphatic system.

To learn more about the impact dry brushing can have on the lymphatic and immune systems, follow the link below.

Studies Show Chronic Fatigue A Widespread Problem

Chronic-Fatigue

Chronic fatigue may seem like a relatively new condition, but in fact, the first mention of it came in a medical journal more than 80 years ago.

It's been only recently, however, that researchers have realized the true scope and nature of CFS. The Institute of Medicine now estimates that up to 2.5 million Americans are affected by the condition, of which the most common symptom is overwhelming exhaustion that does not improve with additional rest.

The financial cost, currently estimated at $51 billion, is even more shocking.

So, what is chronic fatigue? Are you at risk? And what should you do if you think you might be suffering from it? Furthermore, how can CFS affect your greater health, starting with your immune system?

For starters, follow the link below. Then, think about scheduling an appointment at Well Within, where we've dealt with CFS and its effects on the immune system using natural methods and whole-food supplements.

It's Time...for Something New!

website screenshot

In case you haven't heard, Noel and Dr. Sonja have launched a t-shirt company (It's Time), that specializes in products with Bible verses and references.

It's Time is committed to donating 10% of its profits to local churches that support outreach programs to our community. Please join us in spreading the Word.

The "it's time" concept was spawned by the previous contentious election cycle that was so polarizing for our country. Whichever side you were on, or if you were not on either side, most of us recognized that there was a need for something more.

We believe that something more is someone: Jesus. Therefore: "it's time" specifically refers to our Lord and us actively seeking to be aware and honor Him in our lives.

Head on over to our website and take a look at our inventory, some of which can be seen in the picture below.

For those social media butterflies out there, check us out on Facebook (@itstimeindialantic) and Instagram (@itstimeindialantic) as well!
