Yes Wellness Blog - In Plain Sight: Countering Free Radicals & Oxidation in Macular Degeneration

The majority of us will have all 5 of the senses at our disposal, and value each of them considerably. If there’s one of the 5 that most would deem absolutely indispensable,  it would be their sight. Responding to visual stimuli makes up a big part of the entirety of our human experience, and to lose that sense would be far more crushing than becoming deaf, for instance. Both would significantly troubling, and perhaps you’d feel differently, but we figure most would take their eyes over their ears if they had to choose.

Yes Wellness Blog - Tip-Top Tummy: Far-Reaching Benefits of Optimal Digestion

Eating is one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures for a human being, both for the nourishment and sensory experiences of it. By the time we reach adulthood most of us have very developed tastes and preferences for certain types of foods, but that also typically comes with some unhealthy eating habits. Some of them you can be dealt with in the interest of continuing to enjoy certain foods (and ingredients within them) in moderation, but ingesting certain foods and ingredients may inhibit the digestive functioning of your stomach and intestines.

Yes Wellness Blog - Understanding the ‘Morphs, Metabolisms, and Natural Approaches to Weight Loss

Every human being has a unique physiological makeup, and when it comes to your propensity to gain body weight there’s a direct relation to two specific aspects of that – your body type, and your metabolism. Your body type is genetically inherited, of course, and you’ll have it through the entirety of your life. Your metabolic rate, however, is the real variable in the equation here and the way it becomes impeded by factors related to age (not age itself – a very important distinction there) can be significantly problematic dependent on your body type.

Yes Wellness Blog - Fabulous Fungi: Embracing Mushrooms as Nutraceuticals Round here, most of us have our first introduction to mushrooms while discovering meadow mushrooms or eastern flat-topped agaricus growing in the backyard of our childhood homes. They’re definitely visually intriguing as they stand there conspicuously in a sea of green grass, and it’s quite natural to pick one or more of them and take them inside to show Mom and Dad what you’ve found in the backyard.

Yes Wellness Blog - Smart Under the Sun: The Benefits of Natural Sun Care Products Human beings were designed to spend a lot of time in the sun, and in fact the vast majority don’t do so nearly enough. That’s a reflection of our nearly entire departure from a hunter gatherer life if you want to stick to the evolutionary perspective angle, but from a more literal one most of us work indoors and are far too sedentary overall.

Yes Wellness Blog - Is Biotin and Collagen Good for Hair? While it may not work out that way, a thick and lustrous head of healthy hair is desirable for both men and women all through life. Yes, it’s the male sex that tends to encounter challenges more prominently there as they age with androgenic alopecia and the like, but it’s also true that many women become concerned about the overall robustness of their hair growth as they also move out of the physical primes of their lives.

Yes Wellness Blog - Multivitamin Considerations While Nursing The majority of women are thrilled following the birth of a child, and primarily for the joy of starting or adding to a family and finally starting life with your wonderful new baby. The fact that the physical challenges that come with pregnancy have come to an end also plays a role in their being as happy as they are, and most of them will see nursing their newborn to be not nearly as daunting a challenge as having carried that little one for a full 9-month term.

Yes Wellness Blog - Get Your Greens & Keep Your Taste Buds Happy

You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.

Yes Wellness Blog - Adsorbing – Not Absorbing: Why Activated Charcoal is Big These Days You’d pretty much need to have been living under a rock to not have heard of activated charcoal these days. That might be easy to say coming from a health and wellness aficionado, but in truth it’s been fairly prominent in the media and across a whole host of subject matters online too. Many people will have seen it promoted as a natural way to whiten your teeth – and yes, it’s great for that – but there’s a whole host of other ‘cleaning’ applications for it too, and many of them are much more beneficial in the big picture of overall body health.

Yes Wellness Blog - The Best Red: Eating to Nourish Your Blood Your body is comprised of a collection of individual parts and components that all work together in collective unison very impressively. It’s quite fair to say, however, that none of them are as integral to the others overall quite like the blood. That’s because it’s always on the move, being pumped out and circulated by your heart to deliver all the sustenance the organs, muscles, sinews and even bones need to be at their best.
