Don't Let Your Body Be A Bummer Summer; 5 Tips To Detoxify As summer winds down, some people who ditched their New Year's weight-loss resolu- tions may re-dedicate themselves to looking good. Even more important, though, is what we put in our bodies. What we eat and drink not only impacts how we look, but how we feel. And to properly set the tone for the inner body and good overall health, it's vital to get the bad stuff- toxins - out, and keep them out, says Dr. Suhyun An (www.drsuhyunan.com), an expert on regenerative medicine and co-author of Demystifying Stem Cells: A Real-Life Approach To Regenerative Medicine. "People may want to look good, but being truly healthy on the inside is a year-round com- mitment, Dr. An says. "And you need to start by detoxifying the body. "Toxins can severely affect every part of the body. They're in tons of every-day products. Being aware of them and avoiding them are essential to good health." Dr. An provides five tips for cleaning out the toxins in your body: Reduce the toxins you're taking in. The first step to cleaning out toxins in your body is to cut back - or completely eliminate - things you put into your body that contain them. "When something is hard for the body to digest, it can slow down your metabolism and cause toxins to accumulate in your body," Dr. An says. "Avoid these groups: red meat, gluten, refined sug- ar, processed food, alcohol, and caffeine." Be careful with household products. Household cleaners, soaps, and beauty products all can contain harmful toxins that are absorbed through the skin. "Choose these products carefully," Dr. An says, "and always make sure you know what's in them. There are many great natural cleaners and products that can help reduce the toxins your skin and body are exposed to." Drink plenty of water. "Water has a multitude of benefits for your body, skin, and organs," she says. "Drinking enough water is extremely important in getting rid of toxins in the body. It helps boost metabolism and can literally ush out the harmful materials that have built up in your body." Add plenty of dietary fiber and antioxidants to your diet. Eating foods with plenty of fiber, such as organic fruits, vegetables and whole grains, will help your body move the toxins out. "Antioxidants help to fight free radicals and help to further remove harmful materials," Dr. An says. Sweat it out. Sweating is a very effective way for the body to get rid of toxins. "Achieving this through exercise also keeps your organs and systems working properly, which plays a key role in releasing toxins," Dr. An says. "Aside from exercising, hopping into a sauna or hot bath can help, too." "Removing toxins is key to living a healthy life," Dr. An says. "Just like many of us do in our homes by procrastinating and getting sloppy, our body stores junk. Get rid of it once and for all."

FCC robocall ruling offers hope; in the meantime, just hang up on dodgy callers, says AMAC Report shows 5 million seniors lose $27.4 a year to phone scammers Seniors may get robocall relief if a new Federal Communications Commission [FCC] rul- ing prompts phone companies to implement technologies that automatically block them. Dan Weber, an advocate for older Americans, says the ruling is a step in the right direction. 115a president of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] reports that "while it is stiil arly days, it appears the major phone service providers are ready to cooperate. It was good news when Verizon was quick to 'welcome' the ruling." Verizon issued a statement hours after the FCC announced its decision. In it, the company stated that it is "putting robocallers on notice. We've got their number and we're taking big steps to stop them from doing what they're doing." Meanwhile, Apple has announced a new software update will be available in the fall that can automatically block unwanted spam callers. Weber says, however, that he is taking a wait and see attitude regarding these latest efforts to rein in phone scammers. "It's a lucrative crime and the perpetrators are tech savvy enough to find new ways to prey on the elderly." He cites an article on the FCC ruling published by Politico, which noted that: "experts warn that callers slinging bogus tax bills and insurance schemes might still find a way to get through. Calls originating from overseas could present a technical challenge. And the mea- sures are voluntary: phone companies won't be required to take advantage of the call-block- ing systems that the FCC is encouraging and could charge consumers fees for using them." Tech journalist and privacy advocate Paul Bischoff recently prepared an elder fraud analy- sis of phone scams targeting seniors for the technology research firm, CompariTech. The Bis- choff report provides an eye-opening state-by-state assessment of elder fraud. He told AMAC that the FCC ruling to stop unwanted robocalls "is a step in the right direction but ultimately might not have the desired impact for consumers." The report revealed that seniors are primary targets for fraudsters accounting for 38% of scares and that there are an estimated 5 million cases of elder fraud annually resulting in $27.4 billion in losses. "We are hopeful that the new focus on protecting the elderly from phone scammers will have a positive effect going forward. In the meantime, just hang up if a caller starts asking for personal information or makes threats. Don't take their word for it if they say they are calling on official business. No official will ever ask for you to reveal account numbers, Social Secu- rity numbers, Medicare id's over the phone." Heavens above! Will Pope Francis become the first Pontiff in space? It's not likely, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], but he would be "well suited" if he so decides [forgive the pun]. Five astronauts, three Americans, an Italian and a Russian, recently presented the Pope with his very own blue International Space Station flight suit. They also provided him with a white skullcap embroidered with his name, the Vatican flag and the official NASA logo. New For The Well-Dressed Golfer Attention all you golf aficionados, don't let the grass grow under your feet! The Associ- ation of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] reports that Nike will,soon introduce for sale a new take on golf shoes, golf sneakers featuring what the shoe maker calls, "golf-ready traction." And, to give them a bit of panache they have fairway-like uppers made from an AstroTurf-like material. The company says when they hit the stores, they'll cost a mere $140 a pair.

Why am I complaining? Submitted by Gloria Kohli My cross is not to heavy, My Road is not to rough because God walks beside me, and to know this is enough And though I get so lonely I know I am not alone. For the Lord God is my father and He loves me as His own So, though I'm tired and weary and I wish my race were run, God will only terminate it When my work on earth is done So, let me stop complaining about my "Load of Care". For God will always lighten it when it gets too much to bear And if he does not ease my load, He will give me strength to bear it. For God in love and mercy is always near to share it. when thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not over ow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, though shall not be burned Isaiah 43:2 If you would like to share you testimony of what God has done in your life please contact Michelle McCaleb at 931-622-0498 or email to mmccaleb1983 @yahoo. com.
