Allergies, Antioxidants, Dr. Robert Keller, Health
Life with allergies can be hard, and uncomfortable.  Depending on the season and where you live, there can be any number of triggers waiting for you outside during the day, and even more when you return home in the evening. Did you know that there are a number of simple, easy things you can do daily to reduce the number of allergic triggers there are in your home?  If you have allergies, or know someone who suffers through aggravating symptoms, share these tips to help them reduce reoccurring reactions.

1. Take a Shower Daily
One of the best things that a personal with seasonal allergies can do is to take a shower immediately after you return from the outdoors.  Don’t wait and relax first, as allergens hitchhike their way into your home on soft surfaces, including clothing, hair and skin.   Head to the bathroom and rinse off, to eliminate allergies that have accumulated throughout the day.

2. Manage Dirty Laundry
Doing a load of laundry isn’t high on everyone’s priority list, particularly after a long work day.  But where you keep your laundry can have a tremendous impact on the air quality of your home.  A reminder that soft surfaces including your clothing accumulate allergens throughout the day, so storing your dirty clothes in your bedroom is not the best idea.   Keep a basket in the laundry room or in another place, to avoid breathing in allergens all night.

3. Ditch the Carpet Where possible, avoid living in areas that have carpeting.  Each fiber of carpeted flooring acts as a sponge that traps allergens, and retains them.  Carpets are bad news for allergy suffers, as they increase the allergen load over time to reduce your interior air quality, and condense allergens that will trigger histamine production in the body.  Tile and wood floors will help allergy sufferer’s breath more easily.

4. Avoid Open Windows While it’s nice to allow some fresh air in, if you suffer from allergies, opening your windows on a nice day can also invite pollen, dander, dust mites and other elements that will trigger your symptoms.  A HEPA filter fan is a great investment.  Not only does it create the same air movement that is relaxing and pleasant during warmer months, it also helps improve the air quality of your home by catching and trapping allergens.  (Remember to wear a dust mask when changing your filter).

5. Pets and Allergies Many people with allergies choose not to have pets, to help moderate their symptoms.  However, people with allergies and a love for domesticated pets like dogs, cats or birds can reduce allergic triggers by reducing dander.  This means washing your pet and rinsing them thoroughly on a weekly basis.    Brushing your pet outside can also help reduce the amount of dander (pet dandruff) that is tracked into your home.

6. De-Clutter for Dust The more interior decorations you have, the more places there are for dust to build up (even with frequent cleaning).   Reduce your accessories to make it easier to clean your living space more frequently (without having to move items), and breathe easier.

7. Patrol for Mold Mold is one of the most frequent allergens found in a home, and it can hide in places that you might not think of.   Bathroom cleansing spray can help eliminate and prevent mold on tiles, in the shower or around the sink or bathtub.  Also spray cleanser on your garbage can, around your door frames and in your garbage disposal or sink drain weekly, to prohibit the growth of mold in moist areas.   Avoid over watering house plants; while plants are excellent filters and improve air quality, wet soil rapidly grows mold, contributing to allergic reactions. If you are tired of being caught between your allergy symptoms and over the counter medications for seasonal allergies, which leave you feeling drowsy, try a new nutritional approach.

Antioxidants, Dr. Robert Keller, Uncategorized
Understanding the role of antioxidants in anti-aging and wellness is essential for everyone, whether you are in your early 20’s or late seventies.  Health starts at the cellular level and the most important thing you can do for your body is to ensure that you are eating a balanced, nutritious and well portioned diet. Free radicals are atoms that are created when oxygen in your body interacts with other molecules.  The reactive free radicals start a chain sequence that multiply themselves within the body, figuratively attacking other cells by affixing themselves to the membrane of healthy cells. 

Having a perfect diet does not mean you can adequately protect your body from free radicals, as they enter the body in a variety of ways including environmental pollutants (air, water and pesticides), processed foods and lifestyle habits including cigarette smoking.  When you hear about free radicals, it is important to understand that the damage they do to cells is substantial if not controlled or counteracted by your body’s best and only defense against the destruction of healthy cells; antioxidants.

Vitamins such as vitamin E, beta-carotene and vitamin C combat free radicals. Selenium is a trace metal that also has an important role in antioxidant functioning.  Vitamin E can be acquired in a natural diet that is rich in nuts, certain vegetables, whole grains, apricots and some fruits.  Vitamin C (required for the production of vitamin A in the body) is present in citrus fruits, green peppers and leafy vegetables such as kale.  Beta carotene (retinol) is acquired in foods like carrots, broccoli, yams and cantaloupe.

The Link Between Antioxidants and Good Health

Consider your daily diet from an antioxidant perspective.  How many of these essential foods and nutrients are you receiving consistently to support the healthy antioxidant functioning that your body needs to combat cellular damage?  Health and wellness starts at the cellular level, and high quality nutritional supplements are an effective way to bridge the gap between the nutrients you eat daily and the full spectrum of vitamins and minerals your body needs consistently to combat free radicals and to promote a healthy immune system.

There are other aspects to managing your personal wellness, including hydration and regular exercise, but nutrition is the key to achieving and maintaining health at all ages and in every stage of life.  Dr. Robert Keller was passionate about educating others on the key role of antioxidants and healthy aging, and his research formulated a family of supplements designed to work synergistically to provide comprehensive nutritional support and cellular health.

Did you know that Alzheimer’s Disease is not a normal part of aging?  While age is a contributing factor to the disease, a diagnosis can be attributed to poor health and wellness management and lifestyle choices sustained over long periods of time.  The disease is the cumulative effect of choices your make (or do not make) every day of your life. Knowing that cognitive decline is something that can be deferred or even avoided all together is an important aspect to motivate each of us to take our health more seriously.  In addition to making the right choices for our health, it’s important to understand that persistence is the key to protecting our cognitive (and physical) health as we age.   And it’s really never too late to start making the right changes.

Factors That May Increase Your Risk

There is no single lifestyle issue that has been proven to cause Alzheimer’s disease, but clinical research studies around the world have evaluated common characteristics between individuals who have been diagnosed with the disease. For Type I and Type II diabetics, poorly controlled glucose is known to damage cognitive abilities.  There is some statistic evidence that demonstrates high blood sugar as a precursor to developing Alzheimer’s in both men and women.

Cigarette smoking is also statistically correlated as a possible factor in cognitive decline.   The University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital conducted a study of 21,123 members within their healthcare system who were between the ages of fifty to sixty years.  The mean age of the participants was 71.6 years and they were evaluated between the years 1978 to 1985 with follow up study in 2008. The study reported that for individuals who smoked on average about two packs of cigarettes per day, the following number developed cognitive decline:

  • 25.4% of participants were diagnosed with dementia as little as 23 years after the initial study.
  • Of the participants diagnosed with dementia, 1,136 had Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Many participants had developed vascular dementia, where oxygen flow is constricted due to hardened or blocked arteries causing cognitive damage or stroke.

It is important to note that the study evaluated individuals who smoked two packs per day during their middle aged life (approximately thirties and forties).   Individuals who quit smoking in the midlife years did not show the same prevalence of cognitive decline; quitting demonstrated a significant health benefit.

Other factors that can contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia include:
  • Sedentary lifestyle (low exercise).
  • Hypertension.
  • Inadequate natural nutrition (diet with minimal fruits and vegetables).
  • High cholesterol.
   
Lowering Your Risk

If you think that your current lifestyle places you at risk for developing dementia or other cognitive impairments that will impact the quality of your senior life, there is no time like the present to begin to make healthy changes.
  1. Enjoy a robust social life and activity.  Some studies have shown that close social interactions with peers and family members can help keep cognitive processes engaged.
  2. Monitor your key numbers (blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol) annually and discuss preventative measures with your physician.
  3. Engage in lifelong learning.  Continuous learners were found to have lower rates of dementia and other types of cognitive decline.
  4. Eat your fruits and vegetables!  Get fresh produce on your plate daily.

High blood pressure doesn’t seem like much to worry about.  When most people are diagnosed, few understand the concern that their physician has regarding side effects and complications because in the beginning, you feel few to no symptoms of the condition. And that’s what makes hypertension so dangerous.

There are a number of contributing factors that increase your risk for developing hypertension (high blood pressure), but lifestyle is by far the strongest influence.  What you eat, how often you exercise and your habits either support healthy blood pressure or contribute to elevated hypertension.   We’ll talk about some of the causes and what you (with the supervision of your family doctor) can do to manage it.

What Causes High Blood Pressure?

Essential hypertension can be an inherited problem where mostly men experience non-lifestyle related high blood pressure.  Individuals who are black have twice the risk of essential hypertension than white peers in similar age groups.  Black women over the age of 65 develop a higher incidence of hypertension than men. Lifestyle or chronic hypertension is related to diet, fitness, weight and age as well as ethnic background. Two numbers are provided to measure hypertension; the first being the systolic and the second the diastolic. The universal ranges for blood pressure are:
  1. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80.
  2. Prehypertension is measured at 120-139/80-89
  3. Stage 1 of hypertension is: 140-159/90-99
  4. Stage 2 of hypertension is: 160/100+
  5. High blood pressure for seniors over 60 years of age is: 150+/90+
Regular blood pressure tests are recommended for individuals over the age of forty, but many physicians recommend an annual check for all adults over the age of twenty-five years.  If left untreated, hypertension can lead to a thickening of the arteries, cardiac distress, and other medical conditions.

Changes that Support Healthy Blood Pressure

It should be noted that hypertension is a serious health concern that requires the ongoing medical supervision of a trained physician.  In addition to supervision by a medical doctor, there are some known lifestyle changes proven to support the regulation of healthy blood pressure.

  • Reduce Sodium Intake
  • Reduce Caffeine
  • Manage Stress Levels
  • Exercise More Often
  • Maintain a Healthy Body Weight
  • Check Blood Pressure Regularly
  • Reduce High Fat Foods

A consultation with a wellness practitioner can help identify individual lifestyle habits and routines that may be contributing to hypertension.  Working in conjunction with a family doctor and medication, most individuals can restore their body to a healthy blood pressure. Remember that healthy changes maintained over time result in better health and wellness.  Persistence is the key (making the changes stick for the long term) and a positive outlook that makes your personal health and wellness a priority.

Cholesterol is a natural product which is always present in the body; there are two different kinds of cholesterol, and you should know where your levels of both of them stand. If you’ve been told you have too much LDL cholesterol (the “bad” cholesterol that can lead to plaque in the arteries), change your eating habits and level of physical activity.
