Women are at risk for developing breast cancer if we are exposed to too much estrogen during our lifetime. During the time of perimenopause, women become estrogen-dominant and may not produce enough progesterone in our monthly cycle to offset our estrogen production. Girls, who start menstruating at a young age, are also vulnerable to high estrogen exposure over the course of their lifetime.
“Unopposed” estrogen can create havoc causing sleepless nights, heavy blood flow, irritability, digestive disturbances, fuzzy minds, water retention with other PMS symptoms, sensitive breasts and weight gain. Endometriosis and uterine fibroids are signs that estrogen is out of control and that hormonal imbalances are occurring. Read More
Wanda just became an Ambassador and is off to a running start – with a Relay For Life evening event! When Wanda told us she was interested in being an Ambassador, we sent her a link to watch the Webinar. Wanda became a Teeccino Ambassador right away, did her event a couple weeks later and has already reported back! She told us:
“This was an American Cancer Society Relay for Life Event to help raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society. At this event a night was set aside to get the community involved. The cancer survivors came out to celebrate their victory over cancer. Everyone walked around the track for cancer. Cancer survivors and those who succumbed to the disease are recognized in a candlelight service and there was plenty of entertainment.”
Wow, it sounds like an amazing night for all, with such a positive message of healing for the community. About the response to Teeccino herbal coffee, Wanda told us:
“I was set up at the Survivor’s table and shared samples with survivors at first during the survivor’s reception and Read More
Did you know that May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and we are going into tick season right now? Are you aware that although ticks have a season (mid-Spring to Fall), once someone has been infected with Lyme, the illness can be long-lasting and debilitating, requiring constant and vigilant medical attention? It is an unfortunate reality that affects more people than most of us realize, and like many other medical issues, often requires a lifestyle change to improve one’s condition. Besides reducing or quitting caffeine, of course one of the best changes a person can make is to surround themselves with more supportive friends. Britt – a Teeccino Ambassador since last year – is making it happen!
Britt recently hosted her second Ambassador event at her Lyme support group, and she tells us:
“I attended my monthly Lyme disease support group meeting. I did not brew any, but had literature, samples and spoke about the products. Many people were very interested, as most of us are on very healthy eating plans (and often face many food allergies) so they were excited at the thought of having a coffee substitute. One of the attendees was a doctor who is opening a Lyme disease clinic in Minneapolis – she took a few samples and Read More
The number of adults in America who are think they should cut back or avoid gluten-containing foods has grown to 30% as of January 2013 according to a survey by The NPD Group, a global information company that conducts bi-weekly surveys on health trends. Every year since 2009 when NPD started tracking this trend, growth of gluten avoidance has steadily climbed, culminating in 1 in 3 adults now expressing the intention to avoid gluten. Is this a fad or do we have an epidemic of gluten sensitivity? Read More
Obesity, as we all know, is on the rise here in the US. Over a third of all adult Americans along with 17% of children and adolescents are now obese. Though there are many reasons for increased weight gain including too little exercise from our sedentary modern lifestyle, researchers are pointing the finger at fructose, a sugar found in many soft drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup (55% fructose) and health foods sweetened with agave syrup (90% fructose).
