What is Yoga?

Yoga is a mind and body practice with a 5,000-year history in ancient Indian philosophy. Various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation.

In more recent years, it has become popular as a form of physical exercise based upon poses that promote improved control of the mind and body and enhance well-being.

 

Benefits of Yoga

Practicing yoga is said to come with many benefits for both mental and physical health, though not all of

these benefits have been backed by science.

Here are 13 benefits of yoga that are backed by science.

Stress Release

Studies show that yoga can help ease stress and lower your levels of the stress hormone cortisol.

Anxiety

Several studies show that practicing yoga can lead to a decrease in symptoms of anxiety.

Yoga is Anti-Inflammatory

Some studies show that yoga may reduce inflammatory markers in the body and help prevent pro-inflammatory diseases.

Can Improve Heart Health

Alone or in combination with a healthy lifestyle, yoga may help decrease risk factors for heart disease.

Can Improve Quality of Life

Some studies show that yoga could improve quality of life and may be used as an adjunct therapy for some conditions.

May Fight Depression

Several studies have found that yoga may decrease symptoms of depression by influencing the production of stress hormones in the body.

Could Reduce Chronic Pain

Yoga may help reduce chronic pain in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and osteoarthritis.

Could Promote Quality Sleep

Yoga may help enhance sleep quality because of its effects on melatonin and its impact on several common contributors to sleep problems.

Improves Flexibility and Balance

Yoga may help enhance sleep quality because of its effects on melatonin and its impact on several common contributors to sleep problems.

Increase Strength

Some studies show that yoga can cause an increase in strength, endurance and flexibility.

Improves Breathing

Yoga incorporates many breathing exercises, which could help improve breathing and lung function.

May Relieve Migraines

Studies show that yoga may stimulate the vagus nerve and reduce migraine intensity and frequency, alone or in combination with conventional care.

Promotes Healthy Eating Habits

Yoga encourages mindfulness, which may be used to help promote mindful eating and healthy eating habits.

The Bottom Line

Multiple studies have confirmed the many mental and physical benefits of yoga.

Incorporating it into your routine can help enhance your health, increase strength and flexibility and reduce symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety.

Finding the time to practice yoga just a few times per week may be enough to make a noticeable difference when it comes to your health.

Who Can Do Yoga?

If you are breathing and conscious you can do yoga! Yoga is for everyone! 

Yoga is not only for healthy, young people, it is also a creative way for children to get exercise. It is way to age gracefully. It is for men and women. It is for everyone!!!

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

WHAT IS HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS?

Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.

Through our partnership with Dr. David Watts and Trace Elements Labs, we are able to provide not only the testing we also carry the corresponding supplements.

WHY USE THE HAIR? WHY NOT USE THE BLOOD?

Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or even acute exposure.

A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development.

Examples:

Thirty to 40 days following an acute exposure, elevated serum levels of lead may be undetectable. This is due to the body removing the lead from the serum as a protective measure and depositing the metal into such tissues as the liver, bones, teeth and hair.

Nutrient loss from the body can become so advanced that severe health conditions can develop without any appreciable changes noted in those same nutrient levels in a blood test.

Symptoms of elemental deficiency can be present long before low levels can be detected in the serum.

Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.

Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the Environmental Protection Agency in determining toxic metal exposure. A 1980 report from the E.P.A. stated that human hair can be effectively used for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic metals. This report confirmed the findings of other studies in the U.S. and abroad, which concluded that human hair may be a more appropriate tissue than blood or urine for studying community exposure to some trace elements

WHY TEST FOR MINERALS?

Trace minerals are essential in countless metabolic functions in all phases of the life process.

  • Zinc is involved in the production, storage and secretion of insulin and is necessary for growth hormones.
  •  
  • Magnesium is required for normal muscular function, especially the heart. A deficiency has been associated
  •  
  • with an increased incidence of abnormal heart conditions, anxiety and nervousness.
  •  
  • Potassium is critical for normal nutrient transport into the cell. A deficiency can result in muscular
  •  
  • weakness, mild depression and lethargy.
  •  
  • Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health.

In the words of the late author and noted researcher, Dr. Henry Schroeder, trace elements (minerals) are "...more important factors in human nutrition than vitamins. The body can manufacture many vitamins, but it cannot produce necessary trace minerals or get rid of many possible excesses."

WHAT CAN CAUSE A MINERAL IMBALANCE?

There are many factors to take into consideration, such as:

Diet - Improper diet through high intake of refined and processed foods, alcohol and fad diets can all lead to a chemical imbalance. Even the nutrient content of a "healthy" diet can be inadequate, depending upon the soil in which the food was grown or the method in which it was prepared.

Stress - Physical or emotional stress can deplete the body of many nutrients while also reducing the capability to absorb and utilize many nutrients.

Medications - Both prescription and over-the-counter medications can deplete the body stores of nutrient minerals and/or increase the levels of toxic metals. These medications include diuretics, antacids, aspirin and oral contraceptives.

Pollution - From adolescence through adulthood the average person is continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources such as cigarette smoke (cadmium), hair dyes (lead), hydrogenated oils (nickel), anti-perspirants (aluminum), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), copper and aluminum cookware and lead-based cosmetics. These are just a few of the hundreds of sources which can contribute to nutrient imbalances and adverse metabolic effects.

Nutritional Supplements - Taking incorrect supplements or improper amounts of supplements can produce many vitamin and mineral excesses and/or deficiencies, contributing to an overall biochemical imbalance.

Inherited Patterns - A predisposition toward certain mineral imbalances, deficiencies and excesses can be inherited from parents.

CAN VITAMIN REQUIREMENTS BE DETERMINED FROM A MINERAL TEST?

Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Minerals influence each of these factors, and they, in turn, influence mineral status. Minerals act as enzyme activators, and vitamins are synergistic to minerals as coenzymes. It is extremely rare that a mineral disturbance develops without a corresponding disturbance in the synergistic vitamin(s). It is also rare for a disturbance in the utilization or activity of a vitamin to occur without affecting a synergistic mineral(s). For example, vitamin C affects iron absorption and reduces copper retention. Boron and iron influence the status of vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 affects the relationship between calcium and magnesium. Vitamin B1 enhances sodium retention, B12 enhances iron and cobalt absorption, and vitamin A enhances the utilization of zinc, while antagonizing vitamins D and E. Protein intake will affect zinc status, etc. Therefore, evaluating mineral status provides good clues of vitamin status and requirements. Continuing research at Trace Elements involves the recognition of many synergistic and antagonistic interrelationships between minerals and vitamins.
