    A review of the book “Breakthrough – Eight Steps to Wellness, Life-altering secrets from today’s cutting-edge doctors” by Suzanne Somers

    When I began to read “Breakthrough- Eight Steps to Wellness” my head was spinning. There is so much valuable information here and I wanted to soak it all up. Suzanne has interviewed 17 medical professionals who are at the cutting-edge of long-term anti-aging medicine. The book has 450 pages of life-altering secrets and it is packed into small print. If you want to live the rest of your life in vibrant optimum health – then this book is a must-read.

    To quote Suzanne ‘Knowledge is power’. To anyone (and really everyone) who would like to enhance their health knowledge, then this book will certainly fill in many gaps. We can all be responsible for our own true health once we become armed with knowledge.

    For me I had never heard of new technologies such as nanotechnology, stem cells and energy medicine. I did not understand the significance of bioidentical hormone therapy. I now have a deeper understanding as to why nutritional supplements are so vital for our well-being. The people who are at the cutting-edge of this new technology are passionate about what they are achieving.

    I strongly suggest that you get your own copy of Suzanne’s book and read it with an open-mind.

    What is it about hormones and aging? Are your hormones giving you grief?

    Women are the doorway to life and our hormones play a vital role in that process.

    Many health issues are caused by an imbalance of those pesky hormones in our bodies. It is important to ask your doctor to check out your levels of oestrogen and progestrone if you have any of the following symptons. And I want to place a warning here – if your doctor does detect an imbalance then it is important that only natural hormones are prescribed – synthetic hormones can be toxic and make your symptons worse.

    These are some symptons that may be a warning sign that you have a hormonal imbalance:
    Insomia, weight gain, lumpy breasts, anxiety, vaginal dryness, night sweats, painful intercourse, memory problem, bladder infection, lethargic, hot flashes, puffiness & bloating, abnormal pap smear, rapid weight gain, mood swings, migrains, foggy thinking, red face flush, gall bladder, weepiness, acne, thinning hair, ovarian cysts, PCOS, high blood sugar, debilating fatigue, low blood pressure, intolerance to exercise, brown face spots.

    If you have more than one of these symptons, then it’s time to talk to your Doc. Getting your hormones in balance prevents aging and decreases the risk of breast cancer.

    Dr Libby Weaver in her book Accidentally Overweight explains weight gain as pieces of a puzzle and we have to figure out which pieces relate to us. Dr Weaver explains how the hormones work for us and against us. I have found her book both fascinating and helpful.

    Do you feel stressed? Is your life just one big rush, trying to balance many tasks? Stress is a big factor in the aging process. How do you de-stress your life?

    * Stress can cause headaches, nausea, psychological problems and even heart-attacks.
    * Stress lowers our white blood cell count, making us more susceptible to disease and illness.
    * Stress can cause hyperventilation and respiratory problems.
    * Stress can cause a variety of digestive issues, including constipation, indigestion and ulcers.
    * Stress is aging

    It is essential for many of us to have some quiet time alone, to de-stress ourselves from our busy lives. We can use that time for meditation or reflection, self-development, reading, listening to music – whatever calms you and brings you peaceful enjoyment.

    Many of us also benefit from friendships with other women, we just love talking. Make time for your friends and for making new friends – the more the merrier!

    I have recently discovered “Body Talk” which is a system of balancing techniques designed to stimulate your own innate wisdom to initiate the process of self-healing. It’s safe and non-invasive, works fast and brings about ongoing and lasting improvements on a physical, mental and emotional level. Find out more about Body Talk.


    Improve Memory ** Increase Energy ** Reduce Stress
    You may also want to take a look at Yoga and Meditation techniques that will allow you to discover natural stress relief, develop intuition, increase confidence, enhance mental clarity and improve memory concentration and focus! This is so powerful because it gives you the ability to transform your entire life 24/7 from the comfort of your own home, in about 20 minutes a day.

    Good nutrition contributes to a feeling of well-being and being able to handle the stress that sometimes is difficult to avoid. My suggestions for that feeling of wellness is to take a good quality anti-oxidant/multi-vitamin, a multi-mineral and omega-3 – along with a healthy diet that contains good helpings of fresh fruit and vegetables. The B vitamins are well known for helping with the stress factors. The anti-oxidants will combat any free radical damage caused by stress. And the Omega-3 will keep our veins supple which will decrease the strain on our heart. An extra supplement that may help with relaxation and sleep is a combination of calcium/magnesium/Vitamin D3/Vitamin K.

    What are the damaging effects of smoking? Smoking cigarettes ages skin faster than anything else apart from sun damage. There’s no gentle way of saying this. If you smoke cigarettes you need to stop. Aside from the many health issues associated with smoking – if you care at all about wrinkles and you want to look younger for longer – then smoking is out.

    Smoking restricts blood flow through the capillaries (tiny veins near the skins surface) preventing oxygen and nutrients getting to the skin smoking increases production of an enzyme which breaks down the supply of collagen to the skin’s structure. Collagen supply is vital to the skin’s elasticity. It decreases with age but smoking cigarettes accelerates this process. Vitamin C is required for healthy collagen prodcution and smoking destroys Vitamin C fast.

    Smoking reduces the body’s store of vitamin A which provides protection from skin damage smoking gets in the way of absorption of vitamin C – a vital antioxidant for skin protection and health smokers continual puckering from drawing on a cigarette and squinting in reaction to the cigarette smoke results in deeply wrinkled skin around the eyes and mouth – classic signs of ‘smoker’s face’.

    To combat aging for smokers I would recommend you take a broad-spectrum high-quality mega antioxidant and multi mineral, a high quality grapeseed extract and high quality omega-3. That way you would get the extra nutrition that your body is lacking as well as prevent further aging.

    Cigarette smoking in New Zealand is on the decrease. Slowly the message is getting through that it is one of the most toxic things we can put into our bodies. I don’t have any friends who smoke which is great, because I hate being around smokers as I am sensitive to the smoke – it stinks!
