Though this post may not include the delicious free wine and cheese samples from Saturday, it does include all of the written material and pictures from the seminar. If you have any questions feel free to contact the Wellness Shoppe at (219)985-8741.

Dr. began meditation at 1pm. The following handouts will help you accomplish Healing and Light Body Meditation at home, work, or wherever you prefer. 

RELAXATION MEDITATION

RELAX, MEDITATE, AND HEAL WITH LIGHT BODY

  1. This is based on principles of Progressive Body Awareness; a non-pharmacological method of deep relaxation
  2. What you pay attention to Thrives! Without attention it dies or withers!
  3. It is based on the premise that muscle tension is the body’s psychological response to anxiety-provoking thoughts and that muscle relaxation blocks anxiety
  4. The technique involves focusing attention to specific muscle groups or body parts. 
  5. Attention is moved quickly to other body parts, in sequence
  6. This releases tension and thereby causes relaxation
  7. One does not linger long in any one body part to avoid wandering of the mind
  8. This is a form of meditation
  9. Start from the right or left big toe moving awareness to the small toe,  then rest of foot to the ankle, working your way up the rest of the body. 
  10. Name the body parts as you move from one body part to the next
  11. Switch from right to left side of the body as if you are filling the body up from your toes to head with a water hose that is attached to your toes. 
  12. When you arrive to crown of head you will begin Smiling in Easy Meditation Exercises
  13. After about 5-10 minutes repeat breathing into your body parts, this time using Light Energy and Awareness, rotating from each sequentially
  14. Fill your body with the light of your heart’s desire, as if you are breathing the light from Earth or the environment. Progressively pull light with each breath.
  15. Be aware of being filled with this beautifully brilliant light from your toes to the rest of your body with each breath. Once your body is filled with your light, see yourself glowing!
  16. Allow your light to fill the room, the earth, and the universe
  17. Enjoy Just BEING!

MEDITATION: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Meditation?

Getting in touch with your inner self or your Essence through a cultivated and disciplined practice of SILENCE and SELF OBSERVATION

Why Meditate?

Mediation calms the mind, heals the body, and reconnects you to your Real Essence. Your real Essence is often neglected out of ignorance or busyness. Mediation helps to control:

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insecurity
  • Fear of Old Age
  • Fear of Death
  • Lack of Creativity
  • Stress
  • Etc..
How to Meditate?

It is a very simple exercise of focusing & refocusing your mind using different was such as:

  • Following your “in and out” breath
  • Mantras as in repeating a short prayer, word, sentence, or sentences
  • Moving rhythmically
When is a Good Time to Meditate?
  • Anytime you get a chance to reconnect with your essence is a great time
  • Upon awakening
  • Before bed
  • After exercising
  • Any time you have available to practice
Where can you Meditate?
  • Anywhere you feel comfortable should be adequate
  • In nature or outdoors, there is often enhancement of the process
  • a dedicated spot in your house is helpful
  • decorating and keeping the place pleasant with uplifting images may have added benefits
The Ever Wandering Mind

The mind thinks, all the time! That is the main design of the mind: to think. Let the mind think and you watch but let the thoughts go by without being attached to them. Bring your thoughts back to your breath, mantra, or any chosen mode of refocusing the mind. Be kind and be patient with yourself. Don’t give up. Just be present.

How long should you meditate?

In the beginning, meditate for about 5 to 10 minutes. As time goes on, you will comfortably and naturally flow into longer periods.

How often should you meditate?

It is important to cultivate the habit of regularly meditating. This is the hardest part of Meditation! Meditation is an exercise that requires practice and more practive. You can build meditation “muscles” and endurance only with practice. In the beginning meditate twice a day for 21 consecutive days. If you stop meditation after the 21 days you will miss and crave the experience. Make it a lifelong lifestyle and you will be richly rewarded!

Keto Red Wine Diet

                                                       Dr. Nchekwube explains the benefits of Red Wine at Saturday’s Seminar

Background

Low carbohydrate diets are an effective and healthy way of losing weight. It is well known in scientific circles to promote a non-atherogenic lipid profile, lower blood pressure and improve resistance to insulin. This enhances the normalization of blood levels of glucose and insulin. Health-giving Mediterranean diet has also been proven to be one of the healthiest diets, with predominant ingredients being olive oil, red wine and vegetables. This program is designed to adopt recent findings in a pilot program conducted at the Department of Genetic, University of Córdoba, Campus of Rabanales, Córdoba, Spain, published in the Nutrition Journal of Oct. 2008.

Olive oil

Olive oil improves the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease, like lipoprotein profile, blood pressure, glucose metabolism and blood clotting profile. Blood vessel inner wall surface function is improved as well as inflammation and oxidative stress. Some of the compounds in olive oil have demonstrated antioxidant, anti-inflammatory cholesterol lowering properties. Additionally, monounsaturated fat rich diets prevent central fat distribution and insulin resistance induced by a carbohydrate-rich diet in insulin-resistant individuals.

Red wine

Red wine contains a combination of alcohol and phenolic compounds which are thought to be responsible for the apparent protective cardiovascular effects. Additionally, it has been shown that combined consumption of wine and olive oil confer beneficial after meal with positive effects on the cardiovascular system.

Dr. Nchekwube’s November Newsletter

Why You Snore and How to Prevent It

Approximately 1 in 2 people snore. A number of factors can contribute to snoring.

The physiological cause is vibrations in your airway. The relaxed tissues in your upper respiratory tract vibrate when you breathe, producing the characteristic snoring sound.

Snoring is often harmless. If you snore occasionally, you may not need an intervention.

More frequent or chronic snoring may be a sign of a serious health condition, such as sleep apnea. If left untreated, this could lead to sleep deprivation, heart disease, and hypertension.

Knowing why or how often you snore can help you determine the best treatment option. Depending on your needs, over-the-counter (OTC) medications, medical devices, and even lifestyle changes may help relieve your symptoms.

What Causes Snoring?

There are many reasons why you may snore. Because of this, there isn’t a single diagnosis or treatment plan for snoring.

These factors may put you at higher risk for snoring:

  • Age:Snoring is more common as you get older.
  • Gender:Men are more likely to snore than women.
  • Weight:Being overweight causes more tissue to develop in the throat, which can contribute to snoring.
  • A small airway: You may be more likely to snore if you have a narrow upper respiratory tract.
  • Genetics:You may be at higher risk for sleep apnea if someone in your family also has it.
  • Infections or allergies:Infections and seasonal allergies can cause inflammation in your throat, which can lead to snoring.
  • Alcohol consumption:Drinking alcohol may relax your muscles, leading to snoring.
  • Sleep position:Snoring may be more frequent when sleeping on your back.

 

You may be able to reduce or prevent future snoring if you:

  1. Try an OTC medication

Intranasal decongestants, such as oxymetazoline (Zicam), and intranasal steroid sprays, such as fluticasone (Cutivate), can help alleviate snoring. This is especially true if your snoring is caused by a cold or allergies.

  1. Avoid alcohol

Alcohol relaxes the muscles in your throat, which may contribute to snoring. Try skipping alcohol consumption altogether, especially in the hours before you go to sleep.

   3. Sleep on your side

Sleeping on your back may cause you to snore. When relaxed, your tongue can fall back into your throat and cause your airway to become smaller, leading to snoring. Sleeping on your side can help prevent your tongue from blocking your airway.

  1. Use a mouthpiece

If OTC medications aren’t working, you may want to consider a mouthpiece. Removable mouthpieces can be fitted to your mouth to keep your jaw, tongue, and soft palate in place to prevent snoring. You’ll need to have regular checkups with your dentist to make sure the mouthpiece is working over time.

  1. Lose weight

Being overweight has been linked to snoring. Implementing a healthy diet and getting frequent exercise may help you shed pounds and reduce your snoring. If you’re overweight, talk with your doctor about developing a diet and exercise plan. In addition to reduced snoring, maintaining a healthy weight can help control hypertension, improve lipid profiles, and decrease your risk of diabetes.

  1. Use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine

A CPAP machine pumps air into your airway overnight, decreasing symptoms of snoring and sleep apnea. It also helps keep your airway open. In order for the apparatus to work, you need to wear an oxygen mask while sleeping. This may take some time to get used to, but it can help clear your symptoms right away. If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, your insurance may pay for your CPAP machine.

  1. Explore surgical options

There are also several surgical options that may help you stop snoring. Some involve modifying the airway. This can be done by inserting filament into your soft palate, trimming the excess tissue in your throat, or shrinking the tissue in your soft palate. Talk to your doctor to see if surgical interventions are right for you.

When to see a Doctor

If your snoring is frequent, talk to your doctor. You may have sleep apnea or another serious condition. Your doctor will be able to conduct tests or even a sleep study to determine your snoring patterns.

The following symptoms may be a sign that your snoring is more frequent or severe:

  • waking frequently during sleep
  • napping frequently
  • having difficulty with memory or concentrating
  • feeling sleepy during the day
  • having a sore throat
  • gasping for air or choking during sleep
  • experiencing chest pain or high blood pressure

After your doctor establishes your snoring frequency, you can work together to create a treatment plan to help with your symptoms.

 All About Magnesium

Magnesium is a crucial mineral for many functions in your body, including energy metabolism and protein synthesis. It also contributes to proper brain function, bone health, and heart and muscle activity.

Magnesium is found naturally in foods like nuts, leafy green vegetables, and milk products.

Supplementing with this vital nutrient has been linked to many benefits, including constipation relief and improved blood sugar regulation and sleep.

Types of magnesium supplements

Many forms of magnesium supplements are available.

The most important thing to consider before deciding on a supplement is its absorption rate, or how well the supplement is absorbed by your body.

Here are brief descriptions of the most common magnesium supplements.

Magnesium gluconate

Magnesium gluconate comes from the magnesium salt of gluconic acid. In rats, it has been shown to have the highest absorption rate among other types of magnesium supplements.

Magnesium oxide

Magnesium oxide has the highest amount of elemental, or actual, magnesium per weight. However, it’s poorly absorbed. Studies have found that magnesium oxide is essentially insoluble in water, making absorption rates low.

Magnesium citrate

In magnesium citrate, magnesium in salt form is combined with citric acid. Magnesium citrate is absorbed relatively well by the body and has high solubility in water, meaning it mixes well with liquid.

Magnesium citrate is found in pill form and commonly used as a saline laxative before a colonoscopy or major surgery.

Magnesium chloride

Like magnesium gluconate and citrate, magnesium chloride has been observed to be well absorbed by the body.

It’s also available as an oil that can be applied topically, but further studies are needed to fully understand how well magnesium in this form is absorbed through the skin.

Magnesium glycinate

Magnesium glycinate has been shown to have a relatively good absorption rate with less of a laxative effect.

This is likely because it’s absorbed in a different area of your intestine, compared with many other forms of magnesium supplements.

Purchase Dr. Nchekwube’s Magnesium Glycinate

Magnesium hydroxide

Magnesium hydroxide, also known as milk of magnesia, is commonly used as a laxative to treat constipation and in some antacids to treat heartburn.

Magnesium aspartate

Magnesium aspartate is another common magnesium supplement that is highly absorbable by the human body.

Chardonnay Glazed Carrots

For a fresh twist on this classic Thanksgiving side dish, glaze carrots with verjus, the pressed juice from unripe grapes; it has a sweet-tart flavor and is similar to, but less sharp than, vinegar.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds assorted carrots
  • 1 cup Chardonnay verjus or 3/4 cup white grape juice plus 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cinnamon stick
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons sliced chives

Directions

  • Step 1 Peel large carrots. Slice carrots lengthwise and/or crosswise. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add verjus, honey, butter, salt, cinnamon, and bay leaves. Bring to boiling, stirring to combine. Add carrots; return to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, 25 minutes, stirring often, until carrots are tender and glaze thickens.
  • Step 2 Remove from heat. Remove and discard cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Sprinkle with chives. Makes 8 servings.

10 Health Benefits of Drinking Wine

As you pour a glass of red wine at Thanksgiving dinner, add wine & health to your list of things to be thankful for!

 

1. IT BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

While you probably shouldn’t stop taking your daily vitamins, drinking a glass of wine daily can give your immune system a boost. Moderate alcohol consumption can ward off infections and keep your immune system in check.

Don’t get too carried away, though. Excessive consumption can lead to negative effects that defeat the whole purpose or drinking wine for an immunity boost.

2. IT INCREASES BONE DENSITY

As we get older, our bones get more brittle. You could increase your calcium intake by drinking milk, or you can do yourself a real favor and sip on a relaxing glass of wine.

Red wine has high levels of silicon, which is great for your bone mineral density. It increases the density and reduces the chance of osteoporosis. And like warm milk, it may help you doze off at night.

3. IT CONTAINS ANTIOXIDANTS

In the battle against fighting off free radicals that cause terrible health problems such as cancer, wine could be your answer. Wine is full of antioxidants that attack free radicals when they come lurking around. When choosing your wine for antioxidants, go with white.

A study done by the University of Barcelona scientists found that the phenols in white wine had equal, if not higher antioxidants, than those in red wine. This is interesting because wine drinkers commonly believe red wine provides the most health benefits in moderate amounts.

4. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF STROKE

Moderate consumption of wine – and alcohol in general – can prevent blood clotting. Wine acts as a natural blood thinner, breaking up any blood clots that could lead to a stroke. This lower risk of blood clotting is more beneficial to females than males.

Red wine, in particular, contains phenols that act as a blood thinner in a similar regard to aspirin – and resveratrol is mostly to thank. A study done by John Hopkins University Medical Center found that resveratrol found in red grape skins could protect against stroke when the grapes were turned into wine.

Beware, while light to moderate consumption may be good in preventing a stroke, heavy drinkers are more likely to have the opposite effect, resulting in a higher risk of heart attacks, not a lower risk. Like all good things in life, moderation is key.

5. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF HEART DISEASE

In the battle against heart disease, taking all necessary precautions is well worth it – especially when it involves wine. The tannins found in red wine contain procyanidins – phenols which neutralize free radicals – that have shown to be effective in preventing cardiovascular disease.

According to WebMD, a study by researchers at the Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa tested the effects of red wine on the health of blood vessels. What they found after 21 consecutive days of consumption was that blood vessel cell health was enhanced, improving the flow of blood. This increases the health of the heart, lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease.

So the lesson is, if you want a healthy heart, bite the bullet and drink a glass of wine. While the American Heart Association does not support drinking for nondrinkers or those at risk of alcoholism, those who already imbibe may continue light drinking for positive heart health.

6. IT CAN LOWER CHOLESTEROL

Have bad cholesterol and no dietary guidelines? Pour a bowl of your Cheerios in the morning and stick to wine at night. Those procyanidins in red wine that promote a healthy heart also promote lower cholesterol.

Resveratrol also decreases LDL – bad cholesterol – while increasing the HDL – good cholesterol. This also means that red wine benefits blood pressure, so if you’re suffering from high blood pressure, it’s best to pour a glass. If you’re having trouble keeping your cholesterol levels on the good side, sip on a daily glass of medicinal red wine.

7. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF TYPE 2 DIABETES

Let’s face it, diabetes flat out sucks. You can’t indulge in cravings without first considering the health repercussions that result in more than a larger waistline. The good news is that if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes, wine may help.

Resveratrol has been proven to improve sensibility to insulin. With insulin resistance contributing to type 2 diabetes risk, a nice glass of wine makes the list of things you can enjoy.

8. IT REDUCES THE RISK OF CANCER

In the battle against cancer, wine may is on your side. The risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer can be reduced by drinking a glass of wine. The antioxidants combat nasty free radicals that allow cancer to thrive. Red wine especially is beneficial, as the resveratrol that fights against heart disease also fights against cancerous cells.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that:

“Men who drink an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week are only 52 percent as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who do not drink red wine. In addition, red wine appears particularly protective against advanced or aggressive cancers.”

Not that we need another excuse to drink wine, but if it can help against the vicious battle against cancer, then we’ll happily pour a glass. If you’re looking for a red high in resveratrol, then opt for a nice glass of cabernet sauvignon.

9. IT IMPROVES COGNITIVE FUNCTION

It may sound crazy, but drinking a glass of wine is like food for the brain. Drinking a single glass has shown to improve brain function. The chemicals in red wine prevent the brain’s neurons from dying off.

As a result, it protects the brain from dementia while slowing the onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

The next time you do your brain exercises, drink a glass of wine to help you gear up.

10. IT PROMOTES LONGEVITY

When you hear about healthy living and longevity, time and time again the Mediterranean diet comes up. At the core of that diet, beyond olive oil and vegetables, is wine. There is something magical inside the daily glass of wine that increases life span. And that magical thing is resveratrol.

Researchers at Harvard Medical School found that resveratrol activates a protein that acts as an anti-aging agent. The interaction increases overall health, thus promoting longevity. If a decreased mortality rate is not enough reason to drink a glass of wine, then I don’t know what else it.

Well Mag contains Magnesium L-Threonate which is proven in animal studes to cross the blood-brain barrier. Studies also show that over a 12-week administration, it not only boosts performance on individual cognitive tests, but also reverses brain aging by more than nine years in older adults with cognitive impairment. As we age,  our brains shrink and we have stea decline in the numbers and functions of our brain cells and their cerebral “switchboards” known as synapses. Loss of those synapses is currently the best predictor of cognitive decline, the slowing and wandering of our wits as we age. Scientists now believe that preventing the loss of synapses, and promoting their density, has incredible potential for preventing cognitive decline. Animal studies confirm that Magnesium Threonate has remarkable capacity to promote new synapse formation and enhance plasticity in ways that preserve youthful brain function.
