Do Dog or Cat Owners Live Longer?

Do dog or cat owners live longer? If you want to live a longer and happier, consider adopting a pet.

Science shows pet owners are reaping an impressive number of health benefits. These include reduced risk for heart attack and stroke, lower levels of pain, better immune function—and yes, improved longevity!

A large recent Swedish study found that dog owners have a lower risk of death from all causes. Especially those who live without the company of other humans. The conclusion of the study in 2017 was that dog ownership appears to be associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease in single-person households and lower mortality in the general population.

That said, if stress and anxiety are your primary concern, you might opt for a cat because cats appear to be better stress-reducers. A 10 year study of more than 4,000 Americans by researchers at the University of Minnesota’s Stroke Institute in Minneapolis found that owning a cat could reduce your risk of a heart attack by nearly one third.  The finding provoked a mixed reaction from heart experts and veterinarians.

Are You Intrigued By Stem Cell Therapy?

Are you fascinated by stem cell therapy?

Join me HERE  on Facebook starting next Monday December 3rd as I walk you through a week long Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program @sanovivmedicalinstitute in Rosaríto, Mexico.

I will be facilitating my annual Health and Education Retreat with 18 participants and my husband will be doing a week long Stem Cell Rejuvenation Program! (Lucky man 👨)

These are adult, self- renewing multipotent stem cells given intravenously and they distribute throughout the body to areas of damage and degeneration!!! They have the potential to slow the aging process and regenerate and renew damaged cells!

Not all stem cells are of the same quality and potency. At Sanoviv, they have carefully researched potential sources to provide the highest quality cells. Human donors are carefully screened using strict criteria that are matched to each patient. Donors must be young women who follow a healthy lifestyle and are free from chronic conditions. They  use cells derived from placenta and the umbilical cord blood.  These are adult, self-renewing, multipotent stem cells that have the capacity to differentiate into many types of cells, including: cartilage, bone and bone marrow, fat, muscle, and nerve cells—as well as all 10 types of blood cells.

Steve will be a new man! 😟.

The week includes daily medical consultations as well as dental, psychology and chiropractic evaluations. Up to 50 million cells are given and there is an IV glutathione push and high dose IV nutrition !

Spa treatments are included and designed to maximize the efficacy of the stem cell treatments including lymphatic massage and Seaweed Body Wrap ( my favorite )

Stay tuned  HERE for the week adventure !

Stem Cell Therapy is one of the most exciting and promising areas of medical advancement in the 21st Century. These cells can differentiate into many different cell types to regenerate and renew damaged or diseased cells. Stem Cells may help with numerous chronic or degenerative conditions, including: chronic pain, degenerative joints, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune conditions, cardiovascular disease, Crohn’s, and more. Stem Cells can repair and rejuvenate tissues damaged by many health conditions. They also have the potential to slow the aging process for improved performance and a more youthful appearance.

Vitality & Longevity: Secrets to A Thriving Life – PART 4 Your Microbiome and Your health

Until recently, scientists focused almost solely on how microbes negatively affect humans. There has since been a realization that some microorganisms are actually beneficial to human health.

Let’s first of all define some terms:

  • The microbiota is the collection of microbes that live in and on the human body. The microbiota microorganisms contain about 30-50 trillion cells, bacteria make up the bulk  The human body itself contains about 37 trillion human cells.
  • The microbiome refers to the combined genetic material of the microorganisms in a particular environment

Top Ten Facts About the Microbiome

  1. Microbial genes significantly influence how the body operates.
  2. They impact aging, digestion, the immune system, mood and more
  3. There are approximately 3.3 million microbial genes in the human body (and 2,000 functional human genes)
  4. Microbial genes outnumber human genes by a ratio of 100:1
  5. 99% of human metabolic functions in the human body are coded for bacterial DNA )
  6. Everyone’s individual microbiome is as unique as their fingerprint and comprised of hundreds of different types of bacteria.
  7. The specific number of bacteria cells varies throughout the day and is always turning over.
  8. The microbes that live in your body are determined by what you’re exposed to and these colonies are constantly in flux. Geography, health status, stress, diet, age, gender, and everything you touch all affect the composition of your microbiota
  9. We depend on a vast army of microbes to stay alive: a microbiome that protects us against germs, breaks down food to release energy, and produces vitamins
  10. Gut bacteria have the ability to produce the enzymes required to break down complicated nutrients.
