Boost Your Immunity With An Alkaline Diet
Most vegetables and fruits contain higher proportions of alkaline-forming elements than other foods. These foods promote a more alkaline environment in the body. For example, commercial corn, barley, soybeans and legumes are acid forming.
Surprisingly, despite their pronounced acid flavor, citrus fruit and rhubarb form alkaline residues. This is because their distinctive organic acids like citric, succinic, fumaric and malic metabolize to water and alkalinizing bicarbonate, while producing energy inside the cell.
Tune in to this episode of Partners in Health and Biz to learn the importance of eating an alkaline diet rich in certain fruits, vegetables, beans, seeds, and sprouts.

Take a Walk of Healing
Reflect - Our days are often long; filled with challenges and obstacles to overcome. As we review our day, week or month, and walk, we meditate and reflect on the issues before us that we must confront and resolve. Where are we going? What should we do? What does this all mean?
We have so many questions as we seek the answers, and thus we reflect.
Release - Once we identify these issues, problems or obstacles, we pray to God and release our worries and concerns to Him to handle, as one would release a dove of peace to freedom.
Receive - Finally, after we have reflected and released, we open our heart, mind and spirit to receive God's direction, wisdom, knowledge and peace, believing that God is working everything out for our good.
And this is why we walk!
Tune in the this episode of Partners in Health and Biz and learn why walking outside in nature offers multiple healing benefits.

The Benefits of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils - Pt. 1
Aromatherapy has been used for centuries, dating back to ancient Egypt, to treat various physical, mental and emotional illnesses.
As the natural health movement expanded in the late twentieth century, one popular "new" form of healing was the use of essential oils - concentrated oils taken from the flowers, fruits, seeds and other parts of plants.
Technically, essential oils are hydrophobic liquids containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. The oils are essential because they capture the "essence" of a plants fragrance (not because they are essential in terms of being indispensable).
Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host/Natural Health Consultant, Gail Dixon-McBride, as she shares how aromatherapy and essential oils can be used to help and heal the body, mind, and emotions, in this two part series called, "The Benefits of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils "- Part 1.
Antioxidants in Foods to Prevent Diseases and Slow Down Aging
While many antioxidant nutrients are available in supplement form, for the most part it is better to get a combination of food-derived antioxidants. Whole foods also contain fiber, and nutrients from whole foods are probably more readily absorbed than those in pills or supplements.
Growing research shows that there is synergy among dietary antioxidants and that "networking" combinations are more beneficial, as each antioxidant has special protective properties for particular body functions. Foods and products that combine two or more of these vital nutrients provide the most effective balance.
Join Partners in Health and Biz podcast host/Natural Health Consultant Gail Dixon-McBride as she shares why certain natural foods contain the powerful antioxidants that can help prevent and slow down the aging process in people.

Emcee Winston Chaney, radio host on W.H.U.R. spoke briefly about his health challenges and gaining 20 pounds in one year, asking the men to give him some healthy living advice.
Opening remarks were presented by Clinton Burnside program manager of the "Men Take Ten" organization, Dr. Pamela Coleman- Division of Urology, and Dr. Robert Linton - Howard University Hospital/Adventist.
The panel of prominent physicians, experts, and cancer survivors captivated the audience with facts and personal stories of survival regarding prostate cancer, colon cancer, fats, exercise, nutrition, how to prolong your life, and much more.
Moderator Tamaro Hudson asked the panel to explain and talk about many concerns and diseases that are prominent in the African American community, which however are topics that most men refuse to talk about in public or private.

Addressing Important Men's Health Issues - More from the Men's Health Conference
In general, men in the U.S. are expected to live nearly six years less than women, and non-Hispanic Black and American Indian/Alaska Native men have a lower life expectancy than non-Hispanic white men. Many diseases that disproportionately impact men, like heart disease and cancer, are preventable through regular doctor’s visits and healthy lifestyle choices.
However, one survey found that 63 percent of men of color report not getting regular health screenings. Men are also more likely to have lower health literacy levels than women, meaning they may struggle to find, understand, and use information and services required to make informed decisions about their health.
Tune in and listen to this episode of Partners in Health and Biz as cancer biologist/author Dr. Bernard Kwabi-Addo shares important facts about fat, salt and sugar, and how they effect our health.

Listen to Your Thyroid - What it is and Why it is Important!
While approximately 59-million people in the US suffer from thyroid issues, the great majority aren’t even aware they have a thyroid problem. However, when the thyroid (the butterfly-shaped gland in the neck) is dysfunctional, it can cause an array of health issues, including weight gain, sexual dysfunction, depression, heart disease, and extreme fatigue.
Hyperthyroidism, or overproduction, results in anxiety, diarrhea, sweating, insomnia, and weight issues. A benign growth on the gland is called a goiter and can result in either of the above conditions. Thyroid conditions can also cause hair loss or dryness.
With hypothyroidism you may also experience: brittle nails, constipation, dry skin, enlarged thyroid, high cholesterol, irritability, sensitivity to cold, sexual dysfunction, slow heart rate, sluggishness, weight gain, or irregular uterine bleeding.
Tune in to this episode of Partners in Health and Biz with you host Gail Dixon-McBride, and learn how to identify a thyroid problem and how to keep your thyroid gland healthy!
Prebiotics, Probiotics and Postbiotics - What You Should Know
Many people in today's modern world experience an imbalance within their microbiome. Several factors - eating habits, environmental, other health conditions - contribute to this imbalance.
Prebiotics are carbohydrates that humans cannot digest.
Probiotics help to support healthy digestion by up-regulating gastric secretions, assisting with the synthesis of B-vitamins, and aiding in the absorption of minerals.
Postbiotics are bioactive compounds that are produced when your good gut bacteria (probiotics) ferment fiber. So probiotics + prebiotics = postbiotics.
Join Partners in Health and Biz podcast host Gail Dixon-McBride as she breaks down the differences and uses for each one of these biotics and how they can benefit your health.

Fat soothes the nerves and provide the basis for myelin, the protective shield that covers nerve cells. Fat is found in all body cells in combination with other nutrients. Essential fatty acids are an important link in the health chain.
Excess fat, however can be a problem. It it stored in the liver, in arteries around the heart, and in all tissue. Cancer of the breast, prostate, and colon, not to mention obesity, and an increased risk of heart attack, are linked to high fat consumption. The typical American diet consists of 40 to 50 percent calories from fat, a primary cause for the rise in all of these disorders.

CDC Releases New COVID Guidelines/ Final Natural Cures
Tune into the Partners in Health and Biz podcast, with your Health and Wellness Consultant, Gail Dixon-McBride. This week's topic is the CDC's release of new COVID guidelines going forward, and we conclude the last part of the Natural Cures series, wrapping up Vitamins C and E, from our previous episode.
The COVID new rules still recommend that people who are sick with COVID-19 should isolate at home, but people — including students in schools — do not have to quarantine if they have been exposed to someone who had tested positive but are not feeling sick themselves. Instead, people who have been exposed should take a diagnostic test on the fifth day after the date of exposure, and to wear a mask for ten days after that date.
Antioxidant vitamins, including vitamins E and C, are being tested and used to treat a number of diseases - cancer, asthma, infertility, diabetes, arthritis, degenerative eye diseases, and degenerative brain diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
Natural Cure #11 - Vitamins C and E for Heart Health
Vitamins C and E are potent antioxidants; this means they can block the destructive activity of chemicals in the body called oxygen free radicals.

Tune in to this episode of Partners in Health and Biz, with your host Gail Dixon-McBride, and learn how vitamins C and E have been proven to help lower high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and to stave off blood clots, heart attacks and stroke.
Vitamins C and E have also been shown to ease the symptoms of some people suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS.
Natural Cure#10 - Potent Cancer Therapy - Diet and Supplements
An anticancer diet makes sense, used in conjunction with other conventional treatments, as an adjunct therapy, not as a sole therapy. The same is true for megadoses of antioxidants and other vitamins and, for that matter, other natural substances. It's unlikely that one alone will act as a cure for cancer, but there's good evidence that many combined can support and individual's ability to survive cancer. Don't count on one or two magic bullets to fight cancer: It takes many streams to make a river, according to an old proverb.
Tune in to the Partners in Health and Biz podcast, with host Gail Dixon-McBride, and listen to some of the testimonies of people who have miraculously survived and beat cancer, using positive thinking, visualization, meditation, prayer, vitamins, supplements, and cancer medications.
