GMO? Oxidative Stress? Good or Harmful to YOUR Health?
April 9, 2014
Hosted by Judi Pool
GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals. These combinations of genes from different species do not occur in nature, nor in traditional crossbreeding. Commercial GMOs are engineered to withstand direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. However, current evidence connects GMOs with health problems and environmental damage. Are they Good or Bad for your Health? Oxidative Stress represents an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. Disturbances in the normal redox state of cells can cause toxic effects through the production of peroxides and free radicals that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA. Thus, oxidative stress can cause disruptions in normal mechanisms of cellular signaling. Now you know what oxidative stress is. How do you improve your health and fight the "free radicals" in your body? Listen to Paul St. John as he shares his wealth of knowledge on these topics.

On our show we will introduce new techniques, new devices and renew some older methods for pain management that do not involve drugs. These will assist those individuals that want to manage a healthier life style.
We will give choices to manage today’s stress and muscular pain using isometrics, methods, exercises, and micro-current home devices that have been studied and proven to be very effective. These machines are used by medical professionals worldwide for many physical conditions and have been FDA approved in the US for pain management.
Many people, especially “baby boomers,” have every intention to live their later lives fit and active. Instead of living out their lives in a nursing home, they will take the action necessary to stay as healthy as possible as their aging process continues.
Our show will teach you to become responsible for your individual health by giving reliable tools and positive attitudes and confidence to energize the life of your dreams.
When I attended SUNY at Brockport, majoring in Physical Education, I learned the importance of good posture and exercises as they relate to improving the health of the body for the sports arena. Later I transferred to SUNY at Potsdam, New York and graduated with a BA in Science Education majoring in biology. Here I learned more about the intricacies of the human body. After teaching school in Colorado, Nevada, and New York, I left teaching for business. I was president of Sawkill Equipment and Supply Co, Inc., until I contacted Lyme disease, lost my total short term memory and had to liquidate my corporation. I now have Chronic Lyme Disease. During my illness, I was introduced to Isometric Muscle Balance Massage. This type of massage balances the muscles, making my body feel lighter and taller. These massages prevented my joints from becoming stiff and arthritic. I loved the technique so much that I studied and took classes from the creator, Charlotte Vandergrift, MMT and earned my certificate to teach this technique. Shortly after this, I attended a seminar showcasing advanced health techniques and was introduced to the Scenar and the Avazzia. These are microcurrent devices approved in the United States for pain management for both people and animals. I am convinced that this is the future of pain management. I became certified as a Biofeedback Technician and a Pain Management Technician, and look forward to being certified as a Biofeedback Specialist in the near future.
