Strengthen and protect your body’s most important muscle.  Heart disease – a name for the dangerous buildup of plaque in your arteries that could lead to an attack or stroke can be less of a risk by learning what those risks are and doing something about them!  “Heart attack is not just a man’s deal…it […]

Healthy heart muscles are products of good nutrition…how we eat, when we eat, what’s going on in our lives of eating. Example… (hiding snacks, skipping meals & then stuffing, stressful eating, and munching). Do your heart a favor and redirect your nutrition into a love relationship vs one that takes you to heart attacks or strokes. PS Planting vegetables in Gentle Gardens is a real plus. We’d love to help you do that…gentlegardens@ gmail.com.

Finding our passions lets us enjoy many things, we care for our homes, we care for our “things” but we love each other…”Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, HOW MUCH A HEART CAN HOLD”.-Zelda Fitzgerald

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria which are present in the plaque. This bacteria extracts sugars from the food particles and converts it into lactic acid and stores them in the cavities present in the teeth. This can lead to the decaying of teeth. The bacteria that is present in the dental plaque can cause blood clots in the arteries. When these potentially fatal blood clots are released into the bloodstream, they can induce heart attacks. The formation of plaque in the gums leads to chronic inflammation of the gums, which can also cause inflammation in the walls of blood vessels, thus leading to the accumulation of plaque in the arteries.

Will you look at that plaque…Looks like a high % blockage to me! Think you are doomed to go under the knife…well, think again. Bios Life™ is a clinically proven formulated product that lowers cholesterol naturally. Tom and I have been taking Bios Life for several years. Not only has it lowered our cholesterol numbers, but it has aided me in losing 20 pounds. It was the glue I needed to stop the hunger pains and to keep my blood sugar balanced. Plus, it tastes good. I can make a smoothy out of it with frozen blueberries, or add the chocolate to my milk…and it keeps me healthy when I’m working hard in Gentle Gardens.
