Asked to comment on Zwell’s holistic approach to wellness, The Four Pillars of Zwellness, Dr. Laux responded -

“Health is a natural recipe created from love in your heart blended with smart lifestyle choices and consistent daily habits.

“Nature’s gifts of fresh water, clean air, and real foods appear perhaps too simple, yet they are demandingly essential and absolutely critical. Accept no substitutes as there are none as far as your health is concerned!

“Sleep is not an option, as it singularly renews supreme. Go ahead, try not to breath, or eat, or sleep. You command health by following nature’s lead!

"Exercise is natures’ anti-aging elixir extraordinaire, so use it or lose it. It’s your choice, so make the best one for health at every age.

“It has been said that all disease is curable, just not every person. By giving nature a helping hand, all things are possible. 'The surgeon cuts, the physician sutures, but it is Nature alone that heals’ ” 

-     Dr Marcus Laux, June 2010

Healthy Tidbits

Researchers found that flow-mediated dilation (FMD), a marker of blood vessel function and heart health significantly improved after resveratrol supplementation compared to placebo. These beneficial effects increased with higher doses.

A recent study of nearly 3 dozen healthy Zoomers revealed that 60-minutes of yoga, 3 times per week was able to trigger a natural “anti-anxiety” chemical in the brain called GABA,  versus the same amount of time spent walking. Those in the yoga test group had higher blood levels of the neurotransmitter GABA, which is often recommended as a dietary supplement for those experiencing anxiety and depression.

A study recently conducted states side on a group of Zoomers with mild to moderate Parkinson’s disease demonstrated better balance and mobility amongst those who participated in an hour long dance class, twice per week.  Benefits lasted for several weeks after the dance classes ended and participants reported great enjoyment from partner dancing such as Tango.

According to a new study, researchers at Oxford University conducted a two-year trial with volunteers with mild cognitive impairment, characterized by slight problems with memory loss, language skills or other mental functions and found that large doses of B vitamins can halve the rate of brain shrinkage and may slow the progression towards dementia.

A recently published Swedish study, which followed over 30 thousand women during a ten year period, assessed the impact of a taking a daily multi vitamin and mineral supplement on heart disease and heart attack risk.

Of the healthy women who began the study, those taking a daily multi exhibited a 27% less change of having a heart attack versus their non-supplementing counterparts. The findings also suggest that the longer the women were taking their supplements the better the preventative effects.
