When you’re in pain, you lose sleep. You’re also losing the chance to heal naturally. Common over-the counter painkillers don’t fix the problem, but there is a natural, safe way to stop the pain and get a good night’s sleep. Does that sound like what you need?
Q. Dear Terry, “I was in a car accident several years ago that damaged my spine. I have been dealing with chronic back pain ever since. The pain isn’t constant, but when it occurs I can hardly walk it hurts so bad. I’ve had steroid injections, prescription medications, but unfortunately nothing has helped. What would you take?” — Wren K., Columbia, MO
Q. Dear Terry, “I’ve already had some serious heart issues, including a heart attack. After making a lot of positive changes, I think there is still more I can do. I don’t know much about vitamins that are good for the heart. What do you suggest?” — Pierre T., Memphis, TN
Q. Dear Terry, “I have been walking more lately and overall I feel great. However, sometimes at night I get a lot of muscle spasms and soreness. I’ve tried eating more bananas and it helps a little. Are there other natural things I should be taking or eating?” — Joyce A., Roseville, CA

A formula that I make sure I include in my diet is an omega-3 fatty acid bound to phospholipids including the complex EPA/DHA with hydrolyzed peptides (fish proteins). While every function in the body can improve with omega-3 fatty acids, it does have a pronounced effect on heart, brain and eye health. The reason I like this formulation is due to the phospholipids acting as a superior carrier of DHA and EPA to the cellular level.
All fish oils are highly processed with heat, pressure and chemicals. This processing denatures and alters the molecular structure of fish oil to the point that it’s no longer natural as it is found in fish. The omega-3 fatty acids, when complexed to phospholipids, are absorbed at the cellular level up to 50 times greater than fish oils. In this case, there are 5 phospholipids from salmon which is the same ratio and structure as found in the brain, and similar to cellular structure.
Phospholipids from salmon are far superior to fish oil and krill as well. Krill has never been a food source for humans and is treated with harsh solvents such as hexane to remove the cholesterol. Because of its problematic nature, many companies are banning the sale of krill because of the fear of sustainability. The fishing of krill has now been banned off the coast of Oregon, California and Washington.
Phospholipids from salmon, sustainably obtained, are a natural human food and have no side effects. There is no burping and regurgitation of fish oil or a fishy after taste.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
The Ability to Believe
One of the greatest abilities God has given each one of us is our ability to believe. If you believe God’s Word, you can be successful. If you believe God’s Word, you can overcome mistakes of the past. If you believe God’s Word, you can fulfill your God-given destiny. There is incredible power in what you believe. What you believe is greater than your circumstances, greater than your trials, greater than your medical report, and greater than your bank account! When you get into agreement with God and believe what He says about you, then what you believe will supersede any natural law. I have a friend that came to this country with nothing but the clothes on his back. Today he runs a Fortune 500 company. Against all odds, he believed he could do what God placed in his heart.
Today, nurture those seeds of faith by dwelling on His Word. As you get the Word of God in your heart, faith will come to you. Faith will grow and strengthen in you. Faith will rise up in you and empower you to take hold of all the blessings God has for you!
