Got Migranes? Get Muskedine!


Today I'd like to share another story about the medicinal power of this amazing Super Berry Heartland Select.

My sister-in-law has suffered debilitating migraines most of her life and has been on very potent medications. Her Migraines hit her 2 to 3 times every week.

After I posted my last blog about Heartland Select on this website my brother called to ask me if I thought it would help Wendy with her migrane headaches. I told him that the juice is an anti-inflammatory and that it surely wouldn't hurt to try it. I explained that if it didn't help he could receive a FULL MONEY BACK guarantee. Wendy was feeling quite desperate after landing in the hospital with severe reactions related to her latest migraine. She made the decision to try it out and agreed that it couldn't hurt to try.

That was 2 months ago. I talked with Wendy last week and learned that she OFF her medication - this is HUGE for her. She still gets some headaches, much less frequently, but she is able to cope with them because they are not so severe.

Will Heartland Select work for you? That is the question only you can answer by taking us up on our free trial offer.

Indoor Air Quality Survey

Have you heard or read about the detrimental health effects of mold, chemicals  or dangerous bacteria's growing in your home?  Our generation is becoming more educated about our environment and as a result more and more people are becoming proactive.  The word is out and the stories are circulating at alarming rates. 

The consequences of living with dangerous molds and bacteria's growing in our living spaces are devasting.  We personally have friends who are stricken with MRSA, some with severe asthma, others with sicknesses they could not get over until they cleaned up and improved the quality of their indoor air.

WARNING: Poor or hazardous indoor air quality is dangerous to your health. Upper respiratory discomfort, asthma, allergies, serious illnesses, watery eyes, itchy skin, headaches, lack of sleep, fatigue, etc. can be the results of dangerous forms of mold and bacteria that you are breathing in the "comfort" of your home.

Energy Drink - NO Calories

REVIVE is a phenomenal drink mix that was originally formulated for cancer patients. The drink is now available to anyone who experiences fatigue or low energy.

1) ME: I have had low energy and fatigue for many years. In fact I could count on crashing every single afternoon. When I worked outside of the home I used Coffee to stimulate my system - problem was it also stimulated anxiety. BUT - I drank it anyway because I couldn't stay awake without it. THAT was before Revive. My friends, if I could only communicate with mere words what a POWERFUL energy product this is. I know everyone who struggles with fatigue would be FREE of debilitating exhaustion and have energy, just like me!
2) CINDY: I have a close friend who takes Revive regularly—just like I do. Last week she came over and shared that she had run out of her e3 and had been trying to get her energy back by purchasing a Monster Drink. She said it just wasn’t working well so she bought more  Revive from me.  Cindy is a very fast transcriptionist. One of the results of her low energy is that her numbers go down—NOT GOOD!

Last night I met with Cindy and learned that she is back on e-3 and her numbers are back up again and she feels SO much better.

Remember that Revive was originally formulated for cancer patients—to boost their energy levels—that is why the nutrition is so effective! IT WORKS!

It's cold and flu season. Antibiotics are flying out of pharmacies into the hands of consumers faster than you can sneeze.  Nobody likes to take antibiotics, but sometimes we must because of an infection that could threaten our health and well being. Did you know that there are side effects to antibiotics? Yes, there are - while antibiotics wipe out all the BAD bacteria, which is a good thing - antibiotics ALSO wipe out the GOOD bacteria which is NOT good. Good bacteria keep our intestines healthy.

Ever heard of candida yeast? Antibiotics create a condition in your intestines for candida yeast to grow like wildfire. Candida Yeast creates tons of BAD symptoms like:

Yeast infections, Oral thrush, Migraine headaches, Sinus, Ear or Eye infections, Toenail or Skin Fungus, Brain Fog, Depression, Fatigue so bad you can’t even hold a job. When candida spreads strong enough it can wipe you out to the point that you can hardly get off the couch.

There are some physicians today that understand this reaction to antibiotics and will tell you to eat yogurt. Yogurt has probiotics which are the 'good bacteria.' Only problem is that many docs fail to tell you that the yogurt must have live cultures, so read the labels because not all have live cutures, and most yogurts are packed with sugar which also multiplies the candida yeast.

The best solution is to go on probiotics when taking antibiotics. TOTAL FLORA is a capsule that contains billions of stabilized flora to maintain digestive health and support immune function. Total Flora will replenish the good bacteria and keep your intestines in a healthy condition.

The intestines is where you absorb food and nutrients. If the intestines are full of bad bacteria and candida yeast your health will suffer. Here's what Total Flora will do:
  • Proven to improve digestion and elimination.
  • Helps maintain healthy functioning of the intestinal tract.
  • Supports the body’s “second immune system” by suppressing harmful bacteria.
  • Produces enzymes essential to proper intestinal function.
  • Promotes longevity.
If you've ever been on antibiotics you need TOTAL FLORA. If you feel yourself getting sick you need total flora, if you are prescribed antibiotics, you really, really need total flora.

What do Oprah, Dr. Oz., 20/20 and Barbara Walters have in common? They are all reputable news and television personalities and they have each dedicated time on their shows to educate people about Resveratrol?

Why? Here are some good reasons: Resveratrol is known to prevent at least 60 diseases; it is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. Since diseases strike a body that is in an inflammatory condition the logical action to take would be to get rid of the inflammation.

Heartland Select (nutraceutical juice) made from the Muskedine Berry has naturally occurring Resveratrol. HeartlandSelect has the highest ORAC scores of all the popular juices available today. The 3,764 ORAC’s per serving is a true score because it comes from the whole Muskedine Berry (seeds and pumice too), Syrah and Cabernet Grapes. Many products add citric acid to increase their ORAC score giving a false read and not providing a whole food source of antioxidants.

Here is a brief list of some (there are many more) of the conditions Heartland Select Addresses:

  • Cleanses Arteries.
  • Fights Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes
  • Slows Sugar absorption and increases activity of insulin
  • Reduces Sugar
  • Helps control weight
  • Reduces Inflammation from Arthritis & Fibromyalgia & Pregnancy bloating
  • Lowers blood Pressure
  • Lowers cholesterol
Blocks the activity of enzymes involved in the spread of cancer

· Contains anti-cancer compounds including ellagic acid, resveratrol and flavonoids
· Blocks pathways involved in prostate cancer development.

Helps avoid early development of chronic diseases

· Effects adaptive changes in gene expression that help defend the body against ill effects of aging
· Phytochemicals improve DNA repair by activating a pathway that increases lifespan in human cells
… and much much more

How many of you are saying right now, so what is an ORAC score? Below I have edited some technical information from "Muskedine - For the Rest of us" in the simplest way I could to help communicate the various benefits of the little berry called muskedine.


Important terms related to HeartlandSelect

Polyphenolic?  Anti-glycation?  Free radicals?  ORAC scores??

ORAC Score
In simple terms, ORAC ratings measure antioxidant activity. This is significant because antioxidants are necessary to fight free radicals in our bodies.

Free Radicals are loose oxygen molecules that damage cells. Free radicals are elevated in people fighting cancer, heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases.

As mentioned above not all ORAC scores are equal. Many companies are doing whatever they can to pump up their products score. Muskedine grapes possess an exceptional source of protective antioxidants. The Muskedine has grabbed the attention of scientists and researchers as they study the nutraceutical benefits of muscadine grapes which have a unique range of vitamins, beneficial oils, fiber, nutritious sugars, proteins and potent phenolic compounds (antioxidant phytochemicals).

Phenolic Compounds
Phenolic compounds (also referred to as phenolic phytochemicals) are plant-based materials that appear to function primarily in defense against a plant’s predators and pathogens (biological agents that cause disease) and in providing reproductive advantage. These compounds have demonstrated promising health benefits for humans. Muscadines have high concentrations of antioxidant phenolic compounds, including the highly-publicized compound, resveratrol. The benefits of the phenolic compound resveratrol have been well published. Previous studies with resveratrol suggest that the compound has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer potential and may help prevent the negative effects of high-calorie diets. One phenolic compound in muscadines that distinguishes them from other grapes is ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is not only a powerful antioxidant, but it is also a known anti-cancer compound. However, every phytochemical in the muscadine grape contributes to health and healing, and the natural mixture does much more than any one phytochemical alone. To learn more about ORAC scores, antioxidants, and the power of the muscadine grape to fight for your good health, get a copy of the new book, “Muscadine Health” by Diane K. Hartle, Ph.D., Phillip Greenspan, Ph. D., and James L. Hargrove, Ph.D. In 80 information-packed pages, this concise booklet will introduce you to a nutraceutical power food that could revolutionize your life.

The muskedine grape has 20 chromosomes – all other grapes have 19. So scientists wonder, what is this grape doing with the extra genetic material? Perhaps this is the key to its remarkable potency against inflammation, tumor growth and diabetes.

The Muscadine Is A Natural “Phyter”
Our country’s current epidemic levels of chronic disease have reached alarming rates. Presently, 109 million Americans (more than a third of the population) suffer from a chronic disease, such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Phytochemicals are naturally occurring substances found in fruits and vegetables that have some type of biological activity. Research shows that muscadine grape species are rich in total phenolic compounds (a class of phytochemicals) and are a virtual powerhouse when it comes to their nutraceutical value.

A Laundry Pure Story

It all started with a presentation of our Laundry Pure at Gary's Chamber Meeting in Grand Haven. One of his fellow members asked if he could take Gary up on his offer for a free trial. This man owns a cooking school and found it doubtful that Laundry Pure, which uses an advanced space aged technology utilizing oxygen and silver and only cold water, could cut the grease in his clothes.

During his trial of the LaundryPure Gary received a call from him. He said, "Gary, you have made a believer out of a true skeptic!" Gary had advised him to use our totally organic spot treatment on his grease spots and then throw it in the laundry. To this man's utter amazement all the grease came out. Needles to say he asked Gary to order him one that very day.

He was so excited that he talked and talked to many people. As a result, our demo Laundry Pure has been circulating from house to house with EVERY house purchasing the unit after their trial period.

One of the ladies that tried our unit told Gary that she had given up on ever finding an answer to her itchy skin condition. Although she had suspected it, after trying LaundryPure she realized it was detergent that was causing the reactions. She had tried many, many different detergents including chemical free etc. etc. with no relief. This product has changed her life and I, for one, feel very good about it!

If you live locally and would like a free trial of our LaundryPure, contact me and I will bring it to your house. There is never any pressure to buy. This unit saves money (no more detergent, fabric softner or hot water), saves on your clothing, (detergent beats at the fabric breaking it down and wearing it out), keeps your clothes smelling fresh longer than any other method. Cuts down on sorting and drying time. To read more about this amazing product CLICK HERE

Have you ever done research on the water that  flows through the tap in your house?  The enemies that lurk within our water are scarey.  The first step that you can take to uncover the data of what contaminants are in your own drinking water is to  obtain a local water supply report about the water in our specific area.  He also admonished us to NEVER give a child a bath filled with ordinary tap water.

Dr. Oz spotlighted the dangers lurking in tap water on one of his shows.  I have included a YouTube on the information he shared on one of his shows:  DR OZ on Water  View His show @ http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/dont-drink-water

Most people have an understanding of the importance of drinking water.   Less people are aware of what lives in the water that comes from their tap.  When God made water, it was clean and hydrating and living.  Today our waters have been polluted and many people shrug their shoulders thinking, "What can I do about it?"  Some will try to do the right thing by going to their local grocery store to buy spring water or another purified type of water .. thinking they are covered ... Right?  Wrong!!  When I go to the store each week I see people picking up bottled water. I wonder if they know the facts about bottled water.   It is number one expensive and is an unreliable source of clean water.  When tested, bottled water often shows more contaminants than tap water.  It is also packaged in plastic bottles which is known to off gas chemicals that are harmful. 

It's not only important to pay attention to the water you drink but you also must be aware that the water that you shower  in gets absorbed into your body.  Skin is the largest organ of your body.  You actually absorb water faster through your skin than you do when you drink water.  Taking your daily bath or shower is not as we once thought .. refreshing and cleansing .. it is also absorption of all of the toxins and chlorine right into your system.  You can find good water filters for your shower at your local hardware store.  Read the label to see what types of toxins are removed with the filter.

The first thing I'd like to include in this blog is an educational site you can go to in order to learn about what lurks in our water. Secondly I'd like to introduce you to some cutting edge water technologies that will:
  • Save you money
  • Make it possible for you to have pure clean water right in your own home.
  • Give you Peace of mind.
When you get to the site:
  • Click on "The Problem"
  • Click on "Chemicals
When you get to this site: Look to the Right Side under Water Treatment for:
  • Living Water II (attach to the sink Unit)
  • Living Water Ultra (Crock Type Purification System)
  • Spring House (A Whole House Unit)
  • Premium Hand Held Shower Head
Take care of your Body and It will take care of you

Air Purification Solved Family's Health Needs

Over 5 years ago Gary and I were in a Church ministry. One day we received information about a home based business opportunity that helped people with health issues. Eventually (6 mos. later) we called to learn more. Though we were impressed -we were both skeptics.

The first action I took was to research the company and the products. I was VERY impressed by what I learned. I don’t have space here to tell you how wonderful the company is. Briefly, I learned that it is a Fortune 500 business, now based in Dallas Texas. One of the BIGGEST helps ever, to our family personally, is the air purification) is way different than an air filter. I learned how far advanced the technology is.
The next decision we made was to try one of their products .. a state of the art, high technology air purification system. I also researched air purifiers and learned that this product was way different and more advanced than an air filter. It had technology that went out from the machine and dropped particles (filled with dustmites, germs, allergens and more) out of a person's breathing space.
We knew that in order to represent the any of the products made by Vollara, we would personally need to love it. The company offered a 5 day FREE TRIAL we decided to take them up on that offer. The 1st thing I noticed was the smell of Mountain Fresh Air - I loved the smell! My house smelled so clean ... in fact when my son-in-law visited us, on our first day of the trial, he breathed in deeply and said .. What is it that smells so clean in here? There's just no way to describe it. As good as the house smelled, it was the next 5 days that really sold us on the technology.

The first week we had the machine, my daughter Christy said to me, “mom, I don’t know why, but every time I come over my headaches go away." Christy has had severe sinus infections since she was very young. She would run temperatures of 106 degrees as a child. We had NO clue it was related to the air she was breathing. Long story short—we sent the machine home with her—the headaches ended and as a bonus her husband stopped snoring!
The next thing we did is to place a new air purification system in each of our other childrens homes. Here is a list of problems that were ALL addressed and symptoms eliminated by our Fresh Air technology.

Daughter Christy- Sinus Infections
Daughter Renee - Spring Allergies
Son Daniel - Fall Allergies
Daughter-in-law Candace - Asthma, smoke and pets
Granddaughter Madisyn - Spring Allergies
Granddaughter Jessica Spring allergies
Granddaughter Kristin - Asthma, pets, perfume

Our Belief system began with our TESTIMONY as a family. It continues to grow as we help people every single day!
