The Hemp Connection + tips

Don't forget--it's not just about ovaries!

I can tell by looking at this blog's visitation statistics that a very high percentage of its visitors are looking for help with an immediate problem that has"hit them where it hurts", so to speak. You may have acne. Or want a child. Or be looking for a successful weight loss plan.

The fact is, however, that sitting in my seat, it is equally important to offer insight and solutions for those problems as it is to educate about the big picture.

The fact is, 10% of women with PCOS will be diabetic by age 40.

The fact is, PCOS increases your risk of heart disease and high blood pressure.

And…since diabetes is increasingly being associated with Alzheimer's disease, the fact is, you may end up being at risk for that as well if you're on this blog looking for help with your acne.

Fortunately, you don't have to do one thing for your fertility, another for your acne, and another to prevent Alzheimer's. All the suggestions you see here work to help all organ systems function better.

And the fact is, there is a whole lot you can do to decrease your risk of having any of the problems mentioned above.

The fact is, you can't decrease your risk if you don't take action. That part of the solution is totally in your control.

In this particular study, the alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)concentrations in fat tissue were evaluated in 1819 people. (ALA is a type of omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed, flaxseed oil, soybeans, canola oil, and nuts, to name a few.)

Individuals with higher levels of ALA had a lower risk of heart attack.

The fact is…if you cook more often with canola oil, eat more nuts, put some edamame on your next salad, and/or add some ground flaxseed to your next bowl of oatmeal, you just might experience the same benefits as the people in this study.

If it can't hurt and it might help, there doesn't seem to be a reason not to try at least one of those things!
