The Future is Now. What are Regenerative Injections?

FINAL-LOGO-01The latest technology in Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) is now offered right here in Central New York! Regenerative injections broadly deal with the use of biologic materials to enhance the body’s own repair mechanisms to help heal previously non-repairable tissues.

Regenerative injections, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow stem cell injections, are performed at Regenerative Spine & Musculoskeletal Medicine by Renée S. Melfi, M.D. She is a physician that specializes in nonsurgical spine treatments, orthopedic medicine and function, and has been giving specialized injections since 2002. Dr. Melfi is also certified in Integrative Medicine and Acupuncture. She also offers suggestions to enhance your results with recommendations concerning proper nutrition and supplementation.

 Regenerative Injection Therapy for Tendons, Ligaments, Muscles & Spine Conditions

Regenerative injection treatments offer a viable alternative for individuals considering orthopedic surgery or joint replacement due to arthritis or injury. The goal of these non-surgical procedures is to help heal the source of pain, not to simply just mask it.

 What Conditions can Benefit from Regenerative Injections?

  • Neck & Back Pain
  • Spinal Disc Disease
  • Joint Pain/Arthritis
  • Sport Injuries
  • Tendon & Ligament Injuries/Tears
  • Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Meniscus Tears
  • Achilles Tendon
  • Plantar Fasciitis

Regenerative Aesthetic Injections:

Vampire Facelift®

First, hyaluronic acid fillers are injected to create a more beautiful shape. Then, platelet growth factors from the patient’s blood are injected into the face to grow new tissue.

Vampire Facial®

A micro-needling device is used to create multiple micro-punctures, both driving the isolated platelet growth factors into the skin and creating stimulus to tighten and rejuvenate the collagen in the face. Then, the platelet growth factors are painted onto the micro-punctures so that the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation, which will also help tighten and rejuvenate your skin.

Vampire Breast Lift®

When injected into the breast, the platelet growth factors become activated to grow new tissue. This new tissue includes new collagen, new fatty tissue for smoothness, and new blood vessels for a healthy glow.

Vampire Hair Re-Growth®

When injected into the scalp, platelets become activated to help treat thinning or receding hair.

Regenerative Sexual Health Injections:

O-Shot®

Platelet growth factors are injected into the clitoris and the upper vagina to rejuvenate vaginal tissue and enhance sexual response. This procedure has also been found to help with mild stress-related incontinence.

Priapus Shot®

Platelet growth factors are injected into specific areas of the penis to help with the enhancement of erection, sensitivity, and size.

Iron Deficiency: Cause and Effect.

Mega-Food-Blood-Builder-Iron-Supplement-2

Iron is a mineral that is vital to our health and according to the World Health Organization (WHO), it’s the most common nutrient deficiency in the world—affecting over two BILLION people! Iron is best known for its role in maintaining healthy blood. It forms the basis of the protein hemoglobin, which is found in the blood and is in charge of carrying oxygen from our lungs to all the other tissues of the body. That’s a big job! In fact, over 60% of the iron in our bodies is found in hemoglobin.

When there isn’t enough iron in the body, our ability to create normal red blood cells declines and our oxygen-carrying army of red blood cells doesn’t have enough soldiers to perform the mission optimally. This means less oxygen to the muscles, which can lead to fatigue, feelings of weakness, and a tendency to get colder faster. Yikes!

Blood Builder: Not “Just” an Iron Supplement.

MegaFood’s Blood Builder, by the most basic definition, is an iron-support supplement that naturally combats fatigue and helps improve energy levels.* Yet, Blood Builder is more than just an iron-support product. It was truly designed to build the blood and help maintain healthy red blood cells.* Just like all other nutrients, iron doesn’t work in a vacuum and it’s not the only nutrient to consider when we talk about the health of our blood.

Here are Some of Iron’s Helpers:

  • Vitamin C helps aid the absorption of iron; making sure your iron supplement also contains vitamin C is important!*
  • Folate is another partner-nutrient to consider. Folate is involved in the production of healthy red blood cells and low folate levels can lead to less-than-optimal red blood cell levels.
  • The same can be said for vitamin B12 which is vital for the function of our red and white blood cells.*

You’ll find all of these in Blood Builder and that’s a lot of support packed into a little tablet!

Who Should be Taking Blood Builder?

Before you rush to Natur-Tyme to grab all the Blood Builder off the shelf, here are some parting thoughts to consider:

  • Women in their reproductive years have greater iron needs than those that no longer experience a monthly cycle—if you’re menstruating, you’re more likely to need supplemental iron.
  • Men should not supplement with iron unless directed to do so by their healthcare practitioner.
  • Ask to have your iron levels checked at your next doctor check-in. Consider iron supplementation if your levels are less than optimal.
  • Those following a vegetarian or vegan diet tend to get less dietary iron and may want to consider supplementation.
  • Iron toxicity is a real thing, so when in doubt, talk to your doctor and have your levels checked!

Blood Builder has long been one of MegaFood’s most popular products, remaining largely unchanged since its first introduction in the 80s!

Not all Supplements are Created Equal.

If you’ve ever taken iron supplements before, you’re likely aware of the all-too-common and rather unpleasant side effects. Things like stomach upset and constipation can make it understandably hard to stick to iron-support. What makes Blood Builder unique is the formulation of the product:

Blood Builder delivers iron in nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae, if you want to get specific!). That means it’s delivered with essential amino acids, carbohydrates, and proteins that iron would naturally be found with in plants—it’s never alone! This makes it easier for the body to digest (no more upset!) and more-effectively utilized by the body.

If you’re in need of iron support, but have been burned in past attempts, try Blood Builder! Ultimately, you won’t have the negative side effects you would with other iron support supplements and you will feel the difference.  If building your blood without missing a beat sounds up your alley, visit Natur-Tyme to find out what makes the iron in Blood Builder so special!

Family Ownership Fuels Success at Nordic Naturals

nordic in Norway

Nordic Naturals has been privately-owned since its inception and they are committed to remaining that way in order to successfully manage every aspect of their product’s quality. Established in 1995, Nordic Naturals remains focused on every step of the manufacturing process to achieve the highest-grade omega-3 and essential nutrient products. Nordic Naturals has over 200 products to choose from, so they can meet each customer’s individual nutritional needs and supplement preferences. From their ability to source the finest raw material and non-GMO ingredients, to their state of-the-art green manufacturing plant in Arctic Norway, Nordic Naturals’ product quality begins and ends with family ownership.

Remaining privately-owned allows them to focus on the details of supplement manufacturing. Because of this, Nordic Naturals products have won over 60 awards for taste, product quality, and brand excellence. Many of their most popular products are national best-sellers in their respective categories. These include perennial favorites, such as Ultimate Omega, Children’s DHA, Baby’s DHA, Nordic Berries, Algae Omega, and many more. As the company looks beyond omega-3s, they’ve begun to offer a wider selection of nutrients that are essential to health, while maintaining the primacy of premium ingredients—always effective, scrupulously sustainable, and non-GMO.

The effectiveness of omega-3s and other nutrients depends in large part on what form they’re in when they enter the body. Omega-3 products are often sold as ethyl esters, which research routinely shows is not as well-absorbed as the triglyceride form—the same form in which omega-3 fats are found naturally in fish. Decreased absorption means fewer benefits. For this reason, Nordic Naturals manufactures all their omega-3 products in the natural, triglyceride form. Other ingredient selection choices that focus on bioavailability and quality include: vitamin D3, curcumin, lutein and zeaxanthin, red yeast rice, and many more.

Sustainability is also another key feature of Nordic Naturals ingredient selection process. You can’t feel good about a supplement brand if you know that your savings comes at the expense of others or the health of the planet. That’s why Nordic Naturals sources all their fish from Friend of the Sea (FOS) certified fisheries and stick to fish species that are both rich in omega-3s and that have a record of long-term population health. Historically, these species have included: Arctic cod from the Norwegian Sea as well as sardines and anchovies from the South Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Additionally, 100% of Nordic Naturals fish is sourced in compliance with the Norwegian fisheries management system, which has been a model of sustainability for over 30 years.

Nordic Naturals product ingredients have been non-GMO since before most people cared about GMOs—since they began making supplements in 1995. Back then, it was easy to source non-GMO nutrients by sticking with the highest-quality ingredients and sourcing from smaller suppliers. Today, Nordic Naturals ensures their products are fully non-GMO, by testing all ingredients for the absence of GMOs through the Eurofins Scientific Genescan program.

Long ago, Nordic Naturals made a commitment to support great health through better nutrition. They’re proud to continue this legacy, over twenty years later, as a family-owned supplement company!

Ancient Nutrition for a Modern World

Ancient Nutrition

Ancient Nutrition was founded on the principles that our modern world is often disconnected from the traditions and nutritional principles of the past, including how we used to eat and live compared to how we eat and live today. For example, our ancestors ate nutritious whole foods, while our modern diet is riddled with foods that offer less-then-optimal nutrition, such as highly-processed foods, junk foods, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and more.

As a nation we seem to have lost our way, but Ancient Nutrition wants to recapture the wisdom of the ancients! That’s why Ancient Nutrition’s co-founders Jordan Rubin and Dr. Josh Axe teamed up. Together, they are on a mission to transform the health, strength, and vitality of individuals by providing what they believe are history’s healthiest whole foods to our modern world—in a convenient form that also keeps pace with our culture’s busy, on-the-go lifestyles.

For as long as humans have been cooking food over fire, bone broth—the simmering stock of bones from fish, beef, chicken, turkey, and other animals—has been a daily part of life in just about every culture throughout history! Bone broth is rich in nutrients that help boost your immune system, support digestive health, reduce intestinal inflammation, and improve joint health.

Ancient Nutrition’s Bone Broth Proteinpowder begins as true, traditionally-made bone broth. Then, it is concentrated into a high-quality, tasty powder that provides the benefits of real bone broth—without the time spent cooking it OR dealing with the mess and cleanup. The entire process typically takes up to 48 hours to complete.

Bone Broth Proteinis a breakthrough protein supplement that delivers the benefits of homemade bone broth, but in much less time and comes in a quick, innovative, convenient, smooth, easy-to-mix form. It is artisanally produced, non-GMO, paleo-friendly, gluten-free, free of common allergens, and made without any dairy, soy, nuts, or grain—so it’s suitable for a variety of diets!

Plus, Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Proteinis available in eight delicious flavor options and is versatile in water, juices, smoothies, and hundreds of your favorite recipes—all while providing 20 grams of bone broth-fueled protein per serving!

But, Jordan and Josh didn’t stop with their Bone Broth Protein. They have also launched a line of Certified USDA Organic Bone Broth Proteinpowder, Bone Broth Collagen™, Bone Broth Protein FIT™, and Bone Broth Protein™ Pre-Workout as well as a brand-new Keto line of products—with more innovative products on the horizon!

Ancient Nutrition believes the human body was built for high performance and it can achieve this with the right nutrition. In our modern world, we have deviated from the healthy customs and dietary standards that were honored and celebrated throughout history. Ancient Nutrition’s whole food nutritional products are designed to provide ancient nutrients in a modern, convenient form to power the body and mind—restoring us to the health, strength, and vitality of our ancestors!

Maintaining a Healthy Balance with Electrolytes

By Dr. Darrin H. Starkey, N.D. Trace-Minerals-Packets-1Electrolytes, which were once only seriously discussed in athletic circles, are becoming increasingly ubiquitous in our world. With the introduction of sports drinks and the millions of dollars of marketing spent on advertisements and endorsements from athletes, you might be hard pressed to attend any sporting event that doesn’t have a cooler full of these drinks. More and more sports drinks are being perceived as healthy alternatives to soda, but in reality, they also contain artificial colors, preservatives, sweeteners, and other harmful substances. In a world already inundated with so many artificial chemicals, it’s important to understand not only what electrolytes are, but to also recognize that there are other healthy, affordable alternatives available for electrolyte replacement.

Simply put, electrolytes are electrically charged ions (minerals) that are essential to life. They help in the production of energy, nerve transmission, muscle contraction, pH balance, and fluid regulation between cells. Athletes are typically the most concerned with replenishing electrolytes due to their intense workouts and sporting events. However, anyone can develop electrolyte imbalances, especially those who work outdoors in hot temperatures or in dry, desert climates. Typically, a well-balanced diet of whole foods provides an adequate amount of electrolytes, but since most Americans cook it, nuke it, eat it out of a can, a box, or a pick-up window, the foods we eat are not providing us with the proper amount of electrolytes we need to stay balanced.

Dr. Chris Meletis tells us, “The average modern diet is devoid of sufficient minerals that allow us to fully enjoy wellness.” Over the past 200 years, soil erosion in the United States has increased significantly which has led to the depletion of trace minerals in our farmlands. Without a sufficient amount of minerals in our soil, plants can’t provide an adequate amount of nutrients our bodies need to remain balanced. So, it is imperative to actively take charge of our health and make sure we are getting the electrolytes needed to sustain our active lifestyles.¹

One of the most obvious signs of electrolyte imbalance is muscle cramping. However, by the time your body starts cramping from an electrolyte imbalance your reservoirs have already been depleted. Interestingly, Dr. Alexander G. Schauss points out that, “Even at the 2008 Super Bowl, played at a moderate temperature of the mid-70’s indoors, numerous well-conditioned athletes had to leave the field of play due to muscle cramping.”² If so many athletes struggle with these symptoms, even under rather ideal competition conditions, it makes one wonder how everyday activities might be depleting our electrolyte reserves on a regular basis.

While muscle cramping is generally a condition most of us may associate with athletes and exercise, athletes aren’t the only ones who deal with this condition. Anyone who has ever been awakened in the middle of the night with a leg cramp is suffering from an electrolyte imbalance. This imbalance can be caused by poor hydration, medication use, and/or stress.

While proper hydration plays a vital role in electrolyte balance, during times of excessive fluid loss it is not always enough. Whether you are a serious athlete or just enjoy exercise and physical activity, taking an electrolyte replacement regularly will help your body maintain balance. If you are one of the thousands who deal with muscle cramps, an electrolyte replacement will help ensure your body gets the minerals required to help prevent muscle cramps.

Trace Minerals Research’s Power Paks help replenish the body with essential electrolytes, provide electrical conductivity, and fluid balance to improve your performance or alleviate symptoms. Power Paks not only help provide balance, but they also supply over 72 ionic trace minerals that help with absorption and regulation of electrolytes. They come in single-serve packets that are easy to use when you’re on the go, just add water and create your own sports drink! With just one gram of sugar and no artificial colors or flavors, Power Paks are an ideal way to counteract electrolyte deficiency.

With an ever-increasing emphasis being placed on healthy living, having proper electrolyte balance is crucial to your well-being. However, mineral-deficient soils and fast-paced lifestyles make this quest for optimum health more difficult to achieve. But, drinking plenty of water and using a quality electrolyte replacement supplement can help protect you from the adverse effects of electrolyte deficiency and keep you functioning at your very best.

Natural Products Pioneer Gains “Out of this World” Recognition

Paul with RappPaul Stamets with actor Anthony Rapp, who portrays Lt. Paul Stamets.

 Paul Stamets is the Owner and Chief Science Officer of Fungi Perfecti®, and the developer of the Host Defense® mushroom-based dietary supplement line. Now he’s also a main character on a Star Trek series. Seriously?! Yes, Paul is the inspiration for a character by the same name, Lieutenant Paul Stamets, on the new Star Trek series—Star Trek: Discovery. The character, Lieutenant Stamets, is an AstroMycologist who utilizes mushroom mycelium and the study of mushrooms (aka Mycology) as the Starfleet Science Officer.

Star Trek has used real people to inspire character names in the past. For example, Captain Jean-Luc Picard’s name was based on the Swiss physicist and explorer Auguste Piccard. But, using the person’s exact name and their profession, as in this case, is unique.

The real Paul Stamets summed up the significance this way, “We have affectionately called our company StarShip FP for decades. Being a Star Trek fan since I was a kid, this is a huge honor! Mostly, I am proud that the field of Mycology will become front and center in the imaginations of young people. I hope Star Trek: Discovery will herald in new generations of mycologists for decades.”

“Mycology is under-funded, under-utilized, and has not been recognized by thought leaders for the critical roles that fungal networks (mycelium) fulfill in helping habitats, protecting biodiversity, and steering sustainability. A new epoch is emerging as we explore the Mycoverse.”

For years, Paul and Fungi Perfecti® have pushed the envelope of mycological research and discovery. From bioremediation to human health and a sustainable food supply, the attention towards Mycology has increased over the years with help from both Fungi Perfecti® and the support of the Natural Health community. However, this Star Trek series now brings Mycology into the mainstream in a significant way. It will support the recognition of fungi as catalysts for a healthier planet with healthier people!

If you would like to watch the new Star Trek series and see how mushroom mycelium are used in space, the series streams on CBS’s streaming service CBS All Access. They offer a 7-day FREE trial if you’d like to check out the episodes from season one!

 

Your Endocannabinoid System

HempFusion Endocannabinoid SystemSubmitted By HempFusion

“Life-changing,” and a “quantum advance” in the understanding of the human body’s physiology. These are among the words used to describe the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in the mid-1990’s by renowned Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam.

Dr. Mechoulam found that our bodies have two main ECS receptors, cannabinoid 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid 2 (CB2). These receptors work with both the endocannabinoids that our body produce naturally and plant-based phytocompounds, such as cannabidiol (CBD).

We now know that the ECS plays a vital role in our overall well-being by regulating the communication between cells in our central nervous system and our body’s immune system. If there is a disruption in the relationship of these neurotransmitters, a litany of health challenges can follow. Because the ECS is so intrinsically involved in these interactions, it is appropriately referred to as the “Master Adaptogenic System™” of our body.

Research has proven our bodies produce endocannabinoids naturally and they communicate with the ECS receptors located throughout our body. These receptors are concentrated in our organs, gut, nervous system, and brain. When the receptors are operating properly, they transmit signals that produce accurate physiological responses on a continual basis.

But, what happens if our ECS system becomes depleted or damaged? It is important for us to restore the imbalance before potential long-term issues can arise. Similar to a person taking probiotics to restore healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, we can also replenish our ECS by taking naturally-occurring, plant-based phytocompounds to supplement our body’s endocannabinoid production.

Hemp is a Premium Source of Phytonutrients

There are many naturally-occurring sources of phytocompounds—cloves, hops, black pepper, and Echinacea are some examples. One of the most highly-regarded natural sources of phytocompounds is Industrial Hemp. Current research has identified the phytocompounds in hemp as providing an abundance of these nutrients.

Natur-Tyme Carries Premium Hemp Phytonutrient-Rich Extract

There are many high-quality ECS-supporting dietary supplements now available to consumers. Natur-Tyme is proud to carry HempFusion’s line of premium products—HempFusion 3.0, HempFusion 5.0, HempFusion Sleep, HempFusion Stress, and HempFusion Digestive. HempFusion’s team of Naturopathic Doctors and product formulators have created a Whole Food Hemp Complex™ derived from FDA-compliant industrial hemp and other plant-based phytonutrients.
