A recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association finally solves unanswered questions about calcium and heart health. Depending on HOW you get your calcium, it can either be good or bad for your heart. These results have real implications for the 43% of people who take a supplement that includes calcium.
When Calcium is Bad for the Heart
This was big news. Calcium can be bad for your heart. Here’s how they figured it out.
Researchers from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine took a deep dive into 10 years’ worth of medical tests on over 2,700 adults participating in US government heart study.
Most importantly, they looked at calcium intake as well as the SOURCE of the calcium. They separated the results into those taking calcium supplements and those getting calcium from food.
The results are striking. They found that those taking calcium supplements had a significant increase in the risk of heart disease and had higher rates of plaque buildup in their arteries.
The lead author of the study, Dr. Erin Michos said, “Our study adds to the body of evidence that excess calcium in the form of supplements may harm the heart and vascular system.”
Several studies have previously suggested calcium from supplements does not get to bones or is not fully excreted, and so accumulates in soft tissues.
When Calcium is Good for the Heart
Now for the good news: Researchers were able to show a huge benefit for heart health when calcium came from FOOD sources.
People who got calcium from food—such as dark leafy veggies or dairy—had a much lower risk of heart disease.
Why should there be an increased risk from supplements but not from food sources?
Study co-author John Anderson, who is the professor emeritus of nutrition at the University of North Carolina, put it this way:
“It could be that supplements contain calcium salts, or it could be from taking a large dose all at once that the body is unable to process.”
The Source of Calcium Makes All the Difference
Since heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women, this study should cause everyone to look at the source of calcium they consume.
Most vitamin supplements contain calcium carbonate which is produced by either:
To find out what’s in your supplements simply look at the ingredients. You want to see whole food sources and not calcium carbonate.
It’s now clear that for heart health you need to get calcium from food. If you tolerate it, dairy is a good source. However the best sources are plant-based. That’s because calcium in plants comes with all the needed co-factors for absorption.
Protect your Heart with Plant-Based Calcium
Wondering how to get enough calcium to protect your bones, while also protecting your heart? Here are 5 plant sources for heart-healthy calcium:
If you’re not getting all your calcium from your diet, make sure the supplements you use source calcium from FOOD (not rocks).
An easy way to add more greens to your diet is to turn to a superfood juice powder.
Take a look at Super Green Juice which gives you 44 organic superfoods in just the seconds it takes to mix it up. And with 45 mg of plant-based calcium in every serving, your heart will love it.

The following is a short but important blog by Dr. Andy Warchola about the connection between pain and nutrition.
As a chiropractor in active practice for 25 years I see people of all ages who come in for a variety of reasons. Most often it is centered on some type of discomfort or pain symptom.
It’s important to know there is a connection between inadequate nutrition and pain. Nutrition (or under-nutrition) is a factor in many of the symptoms I treat in my office including back pain, limb pain, and headaches.
The Real Root of Pain
Most discomfort we feel comes from hyperactive nerve or muscle tone; and/or inflammation and swelling. It doesn’t matter if the pain location is in the spine, head or internal organs area.
Muscles, nerves, our immune and hormone systems need adequate amounts of plant-sourced nutrients to maintain the biochemistry for optimal function.
Insufficient vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants can cause muscles to stay hypertonic and sore, especially after they have been worked hard.
Inadequate nutrition also contributes to low-grade inflammation which causes the pain cycle to continue in the:
A Prescription for Health
Eating a whole food diet that is rich in organic fruits and vegetables can result in marked changes in your health. I also recognize this is hard for many to do consistently and that’s where supplements can help.
There is a big difference between the nutrients and vitamins grown by nature and the synthetic versions that are widely available. For a long time I searched for a quality line of whole food supplements with no artificial nutrients.
In July 2014 I was introduced to the whole food supplements of Touchstone Essentials and it didn’t take long for me to notice that “healthier feeling” the organic plants provide.
Putting Plant Nutrition into Practice
After experiencing feeling better first-hand, I started integrating whole food supplements in my practice to augment chiropractic care.
Chiropractors adjust our patients with techniques that relax hypertonic muscles and nerves and restore movement of the spinal segments. This helps calm inflammation and contributes to the patient feeling better.
Sometimes the relief doesn’t last as long as we’d like. Normal daily activities seem to be more strain than their body can handle. Within days or weeks their body is tightening up again. This is where nutrition can make a difference.
The Results were Remarkable
In my practice, I observed that when someone starts consuming Touchstone Essentials’ products, their body responds faster after an adjustment and the correction holds for a lot longer.
The longer they have been supplementing the more evident the benefit. This applies to the young student athlete, to the senior citizen trying to remain as active as possible, and everyone in-between.
I have also noticed the same with my own family, including me! These products have elevated the health of many people I love and care for!
It is extremely difficult to consume enough plant-sourced nutrients for optimal health without taking a supplement, especially in today’s world. That’s why I am so thankful for Touchstone Essentials and the quality of their plant-based, whole food products.

This graphic was posted on Facebook today and it really got my attention! Thank you Dr. Laura dot com!!
I'm not sure this is very clear when it's happening. And I don't think it would have gotten my attention except for a recent encounter I had about this very thing.
If this is relevant for you, I think the example I am going to share will help you see it.
Several years ago I spent a lot of time researching the heck out of supplements and vitamins. The result of this research ultimately determined what I would purchase and consume to try and get my health back. I ended up taking 48 different pills and capsules a day!!
I can't stress enough that I did not take this endeavor lightly.
I was desperate and committed to at least trying to heal some very broken systems in my body. Then I took it a step further and recommended many of the supplements I had decided to use to all of the students taking my Health and Wellness courses! Many of them were desperate to positively impact some of their health concerns as well. They were learning a lot about what to eat, how to make self care a priority, how to detox, and how to make small changes for big results. Everyone was seeing results from my suggestions so why wouldn't they trust my supplement recommendations?
When I was introduced to Touchstone Essentials about a year and a half ago, the education they provide about supplementing turned my world upside down. My initial reaction was not very pleasant or irenic. Honestly, I was angry. I wasn't sure who to be angry with, but I was angry. Should I be angry at Touchstone Essentials? Should I be angry with myself? What was the appropriate direction to point this anger?
Touchstone Essentials was simply the messenger. They were providing information about how supplements are really made. Information that is out there if you know where to look. I obviously did not. Somehow though, it felt like they were telling me that I was dumb! That I had made some huge mistakes in spite of my tireless researching. Believing them and buying their supplements required admitting that I had made a mistake.
I struggled with being angry at myself for a little while. This anger was because I felt like I really did drop the ball. As soon as I figured out that staying angry at myself would make things worse, not better, I allowed my anger to be properly placed. I was clearly angry at the lies that exist in this industry. The labeling laws for supplements and vitamins lacks integrity and transparency and we are the victims!
When I started sharing this truth, that changed my life, with others, I saw some similar responses. I had forgotten my initial reaction and the way people responded to me confused me. But I get it! Clinging to something we have worked hard to know is very hard to let go of.
If I had decided to "cling to a mistake just because I spent a lot of time making it", I would not have thrown all of those toxic supplements in the trash and discovered healing that can come from proper supplementing.
Please consider the things in your life that might fall into this category. We certainly want to be a resource for you if you currently take supplements.

We can help you sort through the confusing world of supplements and help you regain the power you need to take control of your health.

Have a happy health-filled day!
The name of my website is Change With Connie and I recently got asked, "Change what?"
Change is a big word, so let's explore it a little!
Over the last 16 months, we have gone through a ton of change ourselves, me mostly! From sick, to so much better!
As a couple and even as a family, we have seen quite a bit of change, as well.
My husband's counseling practice has exploded, which is good, but at the same time kinda sad. So many people need so much help!
Our children are all settled in other states and they are very happy. We are happy for them, but we also miss them, Our youngest daughter got married--and that's a super exciting change!
There has been change in our business as well, and that's the change I want this website to focus on. Our goal from the beginning has been to be agents of positive change for people.
We know that many people need to change their health. Either from very sick to well or from, "just not feeling that great" to "feeling great"!
We also know that people often desire a change in their lifestyle. To go from having a job you really don't enjoy or maybe dread, to being involved with something you can feel really good about, is a big deal.
We also know that most people could use a little change in their finances today!
These 3 reasons are why we do what we do! Since our involvement with Touchstone Essentials, these 3 areas have seen tremendous positive change, not only for us, but for the people that have joined out team.
Let me share some of these successes with you!
First, some positive health changes:
Now for some positive lifestyle changes:
We are building a team of like-minded people. We have been able to travel quite a bit more because sharing and caring is our "job" and we can do that everywhere. Because of the improvements in our health, we are more active and engaged.
Many of our team members are moms of young children and they are finding it so simple to share the power of what we are doing with their friends. It's a simple as, "I found this. Take a look at this video and let me know if it might benefit you and your family. I'll give you a call tomorrow to see what you think."
Here are some of the things we are hearing from people that get involved.
Such a sense of belonging. A real sense of being supported. Truly making a difference. Having a positive impact in our community. Confidence and boldness in sharing truth about health and wellness, Having people over to share this with is FUN!
Last, but certainly not least, a few positive financial changes:
Like I said above, we are prospering enough to travel quite a bit more. In fact, going to Hawaii for our daughter's wedding wasn't a problem at all!! We have made enough money to pay off 5, yes 5, credit cards! We are currently putting aside money monthly for a trip to Bora Bora to celebrate my husband and my son-in-law's birhtdays in 2016. Not to mention, we make enough each month from our residual income to cover the cost of us taking all of the amazing Touchstone Essentials products, which is why our health and energy are so improved!! Talk about a win-win!!
We aren't the only ones. Most of the active members on our team make enough to cover their monthly products. At our last area event one of the gals shared that she has gotten a check each and every month since joining Touchstone Essentials. That made several others realize that was true for them as well. That's pretty amazing!
What changes would you like to see in your life?
Does your health, or the health of someone you care about, need help? Are you open to learning the truth about how our bodies are designed to be self-healing if given the right "stuff" to do so?
Could your lifestyle use a little make-over? Have you always wanted to make a difference? Or, have you always wanted to be part of something bigger than just doing a job? Are you concerned with some of the things happening in our world that are having a negative affect on people everywhere? Would you like to be a part of the solution?
How about a little boost in your finances? Would you like to travel a little more than you are now? Could you use some extra income? Maybe to pay off some credit cards, buy a new car, have products that truly help your health paid for each month, or simply have a little extra to dote on your grandchildren!! Whatever help a little extra cash could be for you each month, we would love the opportunity to show you how to make that happen.
Don't let change be scary anymore! Let us show you how you can simply add the Touchstone Essentials model to your life, either part-time or gung ho (like us) and see the positive effects from it! If anything you read here, speaks to any part of you and your heart's desires, take the first step now!!
Watch this short Touchstone Essentials video and meet Eddie Stone, the founder and CEO. See if his mission and vision line up with yours at all.
If this speaks to you, take the next step now and contact us right away by clicking here!
I look forward to hearing from you.
Until then, have a happy health-filled day!
Do you like ice cream?
I sure do like ice cream - even though, now a'days, it's a pretty rare treat.
Point is, I like it. My favorite is orange sherbet with dark chocolate chips; yum!
I had lunch with a friend the other day and we spent some time catching up. Part of catching up is talking about the business we are both involved in.
We both shared our discouragement with trying to get our friends to take a look at what we are doing.
We are advocates for health and we are entrepreneurs. Nothing weird or scary, just advocates for health and entrepreneurs.
If I opened an ice cream shop, don't you think I would want to tell everyone I know that we were opening an ice cream shop?
Wouldn't it be reasonable for me to want everyone I know to come and try our ice cream, maybe enjoy some samples, and ultimately buy all of their ice cream from us?
I think these are reasonable expectations when starting a new business.
Before the entire world hears about you, your first goal is to share your new venture with your friends; partly because you know that your friends will be honest about the quality of your ice cream and help you make some adjustments before the masses start coming!
Now hold on. Don't get too excited...we are NOT opening an ice cream shop!
Like I said, we are advocates for health and we are entrepreneurs. We have been doing this for almost a year now and, to be honest, most of our friends - old and new - have pretty much ignored our requests to take a look at our business.
I have a few guesses about why this is so:
First of all, network marketing - at least for us - is not about the hunt or the pressure. For us, it's about caring and sharing.
We got involved with the company we did because we have a very strong passion for health and wellness. This care certainly extends to the people we know, care about, and trust.
Secondly, no one looks like a walking dollar sign to us. People look like friends to us. Some are fine in their life and health, but others are broken, sick and hurting, and we believe we have some solutions.
This is a pretty big topic of conversation for us because we are in the building phase of our business, but, believe me, we still have lots of other stuff going on!
Warren's ministry schedule is very full, and I still have a home to run and a family to care about. Our business was not even on the radar in Hawaii when our daughter got married.
Here are a few more reasons why I think you might be ignoring me:
Also, I really would like to know what your thoughts are about my endeavor.
I see some of the things you all are doing on Facebook and I research what I can to find out what's going on with you. I think if you asked me to look at something you were promoting, I would!
An honest, “I'm not interested,” or “I don't have time,” or “I don't wanna re-connect,” would be easier to deal with than no response.
If we didn't believe whole-heartedly in this company and this line of health products, we certainly wouldn't waste your time with it because we wouldn't waste our time with it.
The number one reason, beyond our own healing, that we are doing this is to share possible healing products, solutions, and ideas with people we know and care about.
So, I just wanted to clear the air and tell you that we care about you, your family, and your health.
We don't have yummy ice cream for you to come and try, but what we do have could be a lot more important and of much greater valuable.
If what I have shared here has made our motive a little more clear, please click on the links below and let me know what you think.
I really am interested in your thoughts. We live in a world where communicating digitally really is the easiest and most common way, so please don't think my effort is less heart-felt than in-person.
If you look at what we are doing and think there is absolutely nothing of value for you, let me know and I'll understand completely. However, if something resonates with you like it did with us, let me know that as well.
If you are new here, I look forward to getting to know you. If you are already a friend, I love you and look forward to connecting again soon!!!
Have a happy and health-filled day,

Something is really bothering me. I don't think there is a clear answer or grand solution. However, I wouldn't even bring it up if I didn't have part of a solution.
So here goes.....
There is so much talk about today what is in our food and how bad some of it really is.
We have been learning for several years now that food ingredient lists need to be payed close attention.
Overall, I think people that care about their health have gotten this message and are really trying to do better.
So my rant is toward the supplements side of things.
Many of the people that aren't shy about shouting warnings about ingredients in our food that are potentially harmful (alternative doctors, health advocates and bloggers), are some of the same people creating and promoting supplements and protein-powder products that are full of questionable, even knowingly harmful ingredients.
What is the disconnect?
I get that I was unaware of some of these harmful ingredients myself.
I think the first ingredient that I learned to look for and avoid was magnesium stearate. This ingredient has nothing to do with true magnesium. It is a chemical used to coat pills so that they will run through machinery without clogging up, Yes small amounts are used, but small amounts add up. And this is not food and doesn't belong in my body!
I then learned about a HUGE list of TOXIC ingredients that are in ALMOST ALL supplements available.
Even the really good, expensive, and so-called pure, natural and whole food ones.
Ingredients like: ascorbic acid, cholacalciferol, riboflavin, pryidoxine hydrochloride (HCL), cyanocobalamin, and many, many more.
These are things cooked up in labs using petroleum extracts, coal tar derivatives, acetone, formaldehyde, irradiated lamb's wool, fermented GMO corn, and lots more!
These things are NOT food at all, but chemicals, isolates, and toxic things that have no business being in our bodies!
I am talking about people that should know better. I am gonna name some names and see if my husband edits them out ;)
People like Dr. Mercola, Dr. Pompa, Dr. Carlson; companies like Mannatech and Herbalife; and most popular supplement companies like Standard Process and Kirkland.
Even the company that produced the movie Unacceptable Levels has a company of natural skin care products and recently added supplements to their line that have this bad stuff in them!
When confronted about this, which I have done, some of the responses are, “we don't have time to research everything and we stand behind our product choices,” or, “there are such small amounts of toxins, it really doesn't matter.”
Maybe it doesn't matter to them, but it matters to ME! Does it matter to YOU?
Oh, and doctors, health advocates and bloggers aren't the only ones!
I am absolutely blown away when I go into health food stores and/or healthy grocery stores.
Stores like Whole Foods, New Seasons, Natural Choice, Mother's, Chuck's, and many others across the country.
Each and every one of them has a supplement section, and usually a very large section at that.
98% (I want to say 99.9%, but I better be conservative) of the products in these sections are full of the toxins I mentioned above.
I just don't get it!!
Do they not know, or do they not care?
I was outraged - and continue to be - when I found out about all of this.
But, like I said in the beginning, I wouldn't bring it up if I didn't believe I had at least part of a solution.
And we do!
We found a company that is honestly and fully committed to this statement: “Purity is Possible!!”
One purpose of this blog post today is to encourage you to find out the truth about what you are allowing into your body through the supplements you are taking, even while trying to do the right thing for your health and the health of those you care about.
My husband and I know that while we were spending many, many dollars on products with these scary ingredients in them, I was getting sicker and sicker without knowing why.
You may not be feeling any direct effects of these ingredients yourself yet, but we believe you need to at least know the truth so you can make an informed choice.
If you want to learn about truly non-GMO, organic, raw whole-food supplements for cellular health & nutrition, with absolutely nothing questionable in them, please don't hesitate to ask. We would be thrilled to share what we have found!!
Have a happy and health-filled day
Can I be honest? Hope so - cuz it's kinda what I do best :)
First of all, among other things, we are network marketers.
We joined Touchstone Essentials last October, and haven't regretted our decision once.
What I want to be honest about is what this means to you, our friends.
Network marketing tends to have a reputation of being about people begging, hounding, and chasing people down - especially family and friends!
I think there are still some people doing things that way, but we are not those kind of folks.
We got involved with this company for a number of reasons. Of course we want to share it with people that we care about, because we believe in it so much and believe the company and its products really are the best available.
However, we do not want anyone to get involved at any level because we have somehow made you feel like you have to!!
So, what do we want from you, our friends?
We just want you to be patient with us while we build our business.
We would love it if you would be somewhat interested in what we are doing, just as we are interested in whatever it is you are doing.
We would also greatly appreciate you understanding that we made this decision based on some very sound facts after a great deal of research, and if you would respect this decision we have made.
On top of that, we would be honored if you look at what we are doing or would consider recommending us to someone else you know.
Mostly, though, just remain our friends as we build our business, knowing we do not expect any of you to get involved.
The bulk of our job right now is looking for people that are open to looking at opportunities for better health, access to income generation, and being part of the growingest industry in the world.
We certainly don't want to work with people that feel pushed or coerced into doing something.
We simply want and need to find people who have an entrepreneurial spirit, people who love to take risks because they understand that some risk-taking is often worth the risk.
We are looking for people that are self-motivated and coachable.
Many people that have tried network marketing or have thought about it but didn't think they could do it, agree that the #1 reason is lack of support and/or training.
We have amazing upline support, continue to learn and grow ourselves, and we are determined to do whatever is necessary to make it available to everyone who partners with us as well.
We can't know if this business model might be something that could benefit you or not, unless we ask. We do know that if you give the products a seriously look, you will love them!
Some bottom-line questions to help your sort through this:
If you answered "Yes" to any of the above questions, would you do both you and us a favor by taking a look at what we are doing?
If you answered "No,", perhaps you know someone that is looking for just such an opportunity?
If your answer is "No," or "Not now," no problem! We still love you and want the best for you!!
However, if you say "Yes," and decide to join us, we promise to give you our best and help you succeed!!
This truly is the BEST home-based business on the planet!
Have a happy & health-filled day!
Truth Matters - Touchstone
Even though we have learned over the years that keeping medicine and/or supplements in our medicine cabinets isn't the best thing to do because of temperature changes and humidity, the question is still a valid one.
What's in your medicine cabinet?
Is it filled with things to treat symptoms of disease, or is it filled with things to support wellness?
This is a picture of a medicine cabinet filled with empty Touchstone Essentials bottles because we store our actual supplements in a cabinet in the kitchen - after all, THEY ARE FOOD!!
However, it is a representation of the stand we are making to treat our bodies with food and whole food supplements instead of trying to treat our symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs, chemicals and toxins.
Won't you join us in this fight to turn things around in our world?
There are amazing healing properties in organic, non-GMO, whole foods - our bodies were designed to be self-healing when provided with the nutrition they need (read more here).
AL degenerative disease is rooted in cellular inflammation caused by cellular toxicity.
So, you can get started today on a return to healthy in yours and your family's life, and we will help you. Read some of the articles on my website, watch a video, contact me via email.
Let's do this together!
Have a happy and health-filled day!
Small Changes for BIG RESULTS - Take CHARGE of your life, health, and even wealth!
Make some smart but simple changes and your life will change DRAMATICALLY:
STOP EATING MAN-MADE CHEMICALS!!!
SUPPLEMENTS ARE NECESSARY because we CANNOT get all we need from food alone. Problem is, almost everything on the market has some level of synthetic, man-made chemical replacing or in addition to the vitamins and minerals we need.
Our bodies are designed to be self-healing with proper nutrition from FOOD. They were NOT designed to metabolize CHEMICALS or SYNTHETICS – these turn into WASTE, FAT or DISEASE!
Join the revolution today, and start taking back control of your own health and wellness!
Have a happy and health-filled day,
This is a common question, and one we all usually assume the answer to is "Yes." We found out that isn't always the case.
Several days ago, one of our team members pointed out a very interesting fact about the cost and value of Touchstone Essentials supplements.
We looked closely at the "Essentials" product in particular. Here is what we found:
Touchstone Essentials' anti-aging formula of Essentials provides 33 servings of organic, non-GMO raw whole-food nutrition in each 3-capsule serving.
With each bottle containing 30 servings, that equals the nutritional content of 990 servings of organic food.
This amazing whole-food formula retails for $59.95 (wholesale is even less).
Are you ready for this???? That makes each serving about 6 cents apiece!!! (Again, wholesale is even less!!)
Yes, we also need to eat food. Supplements are just that, supplements to what we eat.
However, it is getting harder and harder to find truly nutritious food. That is why we believe we need a base of nutrition that comes from these high quality whole-food supplements.
We really believe we can now worry less about nourishing our bodies they way they need to be nourished, and are seeing the results in powerful ways.
The next obvious question was, "How can Touchstone Essentials possibly provide this level of nutritionally sound supplements for that low a cost?"
The answer to this question is really a pretty big deal.
Touchstone Essentials has made a commitment to purity in each and every product they produce.
The Founder and CEO, Eddie Stone, carries this commitment into all areas of his mission and vision.
He truly is figuring out how to create and maintain a high level of quality while also minimizing the impact of producing products that don't leave a heavy foot print.
Sustainable farming, organic practices, and high-integrity cGMP manufacturing really can be done affordably, if done right.
While we do not know all of the practices in place, we were thoroughly impressed when we learned about just one of these very important practices in place at Touchstone Essentials.
That one practice is field-side drying. This one process makes the produce needing to be shipped significantly lighter and far less bulky than the raw materials, and therefore extremely cheaper to ship!
So, when it comes to our health and the health of those we love and care about, less than 6 cents a serving is not simply affordable, but a true bargain!! Don't ya think??
Order your Touchstone Essentials today and start building the base of cellular health and nutrition you really need for a healthy and vibrant life.
Go to www.TruthMatters.MyTouchstoneEssentials.com and see for yourself just how easy and affordable it really is to take care of yourself and your loved ones!!
Have a health-filled and happy day!!
Everyone deserves "the Good Inside," and, yes, "Purity is Possible."
