About The Forever Word

I’m a Christian who loves God and my family. I’m a Mother of 2 beautiful children, a 6 year old daughter and almost 2 year old son. I’m addicted to Digital Scrapbooking and Photography. I also love cooking, baking, gardening and anything that makes me excite like Blogging and travel!


Events happen and time goes on even if we’re not ready for the next step.  It’s sometimes difficult to keep up with the pace of life, what with work schedules, children’s schedules, relationships and last but not least sleep.  I don’t know what others do to manage it all.  But I do know what works for me personally.  It basically involves taking one step at a time and doing things in their proper time and place.  I also know that there are plenty of other strategies for dealing with stress, including taking dietary supplements like nopalea.  But I’ll get to that in a moment.

That might sound easy and pat for an answer.  But it’s the same thing as if I told you I live in the moment — or at least try to.  Of course I don’t always succeed.  There are certain stresses that make it a challenge to live up to that.  And everyone has their own unique triggers.  We are all unique individuals after all – even if we are basically a lot alike.

It’s stress – they say – that is at the root of most, if not all, diseases — Mental stress, emotional stress, money stress …  (Is there such thing as money stress?)  It might have a different name depending on what area of life you’re feeling the pressure.  But it’s all the same to the body.  It reacts and fights hard to defend itself against the pressure.  But it does take its toll on it.

Scientists have only recently made the connection between stress and one of the consequences to the body’s chemistry.  And that is that biochemical reactions in the body – due in large part to the stress that we all are subjected to – produce something called free radicals.  These can do a lot of damage to the cells in the body if they are allowed to roam free for any length of time.

Now, the body has its own systems to help take away free radicals, but there are things that help the body in that capacity.  You might have followed some of the recent discoveries in the benefits of drinking red wine – which contains compounds that neutralize these free radicals.  Maybe you even drink a glass a day for that reason.  But not everyone likes drinking wine.

Well, there are alternatives.  Many plants exist in the wild that we are only now just discovering their antioxidant fighting abilities.  That’s what makes certain dietary supplements so amazing.  It’s like nature came with a natural answer to the problems that we have to face.
