Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Before you say you’ll exercise tomorrow, think about this.

Exercising increases your body’s ability to repair its cells thereby helping to prevent premature aging. And not only does it help to pump toxins out of the body, it encourages the growth of new brain cells.

So get to that gym, or to the park, or walk around the block

or dance around your house. 
 

Just move!

(Excerpt from “Who Took My Chocolate Cake”
by Max Izenberg 2011)

Watch out for emails from places like FedEx 2day (a bogus company) with the subject line “Significant Delivery Problem”.  Never open things like this and never ever open any  attachments within the email as they can spread a virus to your entire computer.

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS

Dow Plunges 531 Points in Global Selloff
 
A global market rout intensified Friday, pummeling stocks and commodities, as concerns about China’s economy pushed the Dow industrials into correction territory.
Both the blue-chip index and the S&P 500 posted their biggest one-day percentage drops since November 2011, with the Dow closing 10% below its recent high. U.S. oil prices also briefly dropped below $40 a barrel on Friday, a level not seen since the financial crisis.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

The old butter vs. margarine query can
finally be answered.

Margarine is extremely high in trans fats
so it can triple the risk of heart disease
and decrease immune response.

It also is just one molecule away from being plastic.
And how about all that food coloring?

Pass the butter please!

CAN YOU CATCH UP ON SLEEP?

Yes, yawns are contagious, but that’s not the main reason we all seem sleepy. In a recent CDC survey, 35 percent of Americans said they get fewer than the recommended seven hours of shut-eye every night. And that’s a big deal considering we need sleep to rest, recharge, reduce stress, and even lose weight.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Do you include ginger in your daily diet?
It’s one of the most potent herbs available and contains many medicinal properties.

Helps with inflammation, maintains normal blood  circulation, improves absorption of nutrients, and is an overall aide to your system.

And when you feel that headache starting, try some fresh ginger – it could terminate it!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
8 Signs That an IRA/401(k)
is Broken and How to Fix Them

1. You Have No Formal Distribution Plan or Exit Strategy.
* 85% of the 77 million Baby Boomers have no formal distribution plan to transform their retirement nest eggs into a steady stream of income.

* Few understand or have taken advantage of the new IRA distribution rules and run the risk that their nest egg will be “confiscated” by the IRS as it forces rapid distribution and, therefore, rapid taxation.

THE FIX: We can fix it by putting in place a distribution and exit plan for the client and their family thereby preserving the beneficiaries’ right to use their own life expectancies.

ARE YOU AGING FASTER THAN YOU SHOULD BE?

The interesting thing about getting older is that we don’t always feel (or act!) our age. And there’s a reason for that! Every single one of us really has two ages-a chronological age (presumably, the one you count now) and a biological age.

That means that even at 55 years old, you may feel 70. But the good news is that the reverse is also true-at 70 years old, you can look and feel 55!

Many of my patients are just venturing into this exciting new time in their lives-with their grown children out of the house and grandbabies on the way!-and the last thing they want to lose is their energy or mobility.

Does that sound like you? If so, I can help!

PLEASE CLICK HERE to read more and get access to an in-depth, 12-page document on the accelerated aging process-as well as tips on how you can improve your quality of life.)

GRANDPARENTING HELP

Communication between grandparents and their grandchildren (or even children) can be challenging especially in these times.

Linda Minster, a UCLA graduate with a master’s degree in education, administration and supervision, works with grandparents to improve their interactions. A parent and grandparent herself, she is very passionate about ways of improving communication between generations.

Minster, the author/instructor of two classes, “Grandparenting Successfully” and “Parenting Successfully”, while training teachers at CSUN, knows how stressful life can be, particularly today. She teaches that the best way is when they all work together. Most grandparents want to enrich their grandchildren’s lives and don’t give themselves credit for the positive role models they are. Her classes explore how they can do this.

She is available for private or group talks.
You may contact her at: tennislady@socal.rr.com

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

 

For those of you who know me, you know I always promote eating sardines. And why is that?  They’re loaded with the extremely healthy Omega 3 fatty acids and offer high levels of Coenzyme Q10, which is a powerful antioxidant known to

promote a strong immune system.

And only 3 oz of sardines provide 40% of daily calcium.

So before you wrinkle your nose at these little guys, take the bait and eat some sardines today!

The emails do not name the company that supposedly sent the notifications. Nor do they say what product or service was supposedly purchased.  Never ever open emails of this type since they can sent viruses to your computer.

 

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

BENEFITS OF DRINKING GREEN TEA

Tea consumption has long been regarded as a healthy dietary habit. This idea has been widely accepted without much scientific evidence, until recently, when scientists began to investigate the chemical components of tea and how they affect our health.
