  • Have you wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our genetic heritage. Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel’s research shows that the length and health of one’s telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection. They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans (the number of years we remain healthy, active, and disease-free).

  • Dr. Alicia Stanton explains the dietary, lifestyle, and environmental factors that contribute to hormone imbalances, what can be done to restore healthy hormone balance, and how to achieve greater overall health and wellness.
    Women today are experiencing the effects of fluctuations in multiple hormones, in addition to those associated with child bearing, and most of these changes are triggered by factors outside the female reproductive organs. That’s what most physicians don’t understand. Dr. Alicia Stanton has a special interest in hormone balance and its effect on menopausal symptoms, weight gain, PMS, energy levels and stress. Her experience also translates well to manage her male patients and their hormonal issues, including low testosterone, adrenal fatigue and low libido.

  • Belly Fat Blues
    Getting rid of your belly bulge is important for more than just vanity’s sake. Excess abdominal fat—particularly visceral fat, the kind that surrounds your organs and puffs your stomach into a “beer gut“—is a predictor of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, and some cancers. If diet and exercise haven’t done much to reduce your pooch, then your hormones, your age, and other genetic factors may be the reason why.

  • No Organic Merchant sells white sugar or any products containing white sugar because it is a foodless food. It is 99.96% sucrose and when taken into the human body in this form is potentially dangerous. It is touted as an energy food, but such sugar myths are propaganda and is misleading for there is ample evidence that white sugar robs the body of B vitamins, disrupts calcium metabolism and has a deleterious effect on the nervous system. This is why processed sugar is bad for you.

  • Storyteller Nothando Zulu

    I have been telling stories professionally since 1976; when I began telling in an ensemble. As a child I told traditional tales in school in Virginia and when I was eight years old, I told a story well enough that it kept me from getting punished! I love Anansi Tales and Brer Rabbit Tales! I try to share stories with a lesson. I have told stories in Ghana and in South Africa as well as in the Midwest, especially Minnesota and the Metropolitan area of the Twin Cities – Minneapolis and St. Paul. I have been a featured teller at many of the “In The Tradition” festival and conference produced by the National Association of Black Storytellers.

    This fall pledge drive Health Notes show is soooo Good!
