HANS - Health Action Network Society

HANS (Health Action Network Society) is a charitable natural health resource. HANS provides information on preventive medicine and natural therapeutics through our website, a reference library, Health Action magazine, the HANS e-News, and regular educational and networking events. Our members are like-minded people of all backgrounds, lay and professional, who share an interest in a natural approach to health care.

Our two key strategies to achieve our mission and vision are:

Just Breathe

Our breath flows through our bodies, bringing a life-sustaining force and with each exhale eliminates toxins. This constant dynamic exchange with the universe nourishes and protects us. In deep breathing, exhalation is as important as inhalation because it eliminates toxins. The lower part of the lungs are insufficiently emptied and tend to accumulate air saturated with carbon dioxide. When the lower part of the lungs are properly expanded and contracted, the liver and spleen are massaged by the diaphragm, increasing the circulation of these organs.

While these factors do indeed cause disease, there is one common underlying factor that contributes to all health problems: toxicity. Both exposure to toxins and subsequent toxic accumulation cause untold health problems, both immediate and long term. 

Can Co Q10 Turn Back Your Biological Clock?

Until now western reproductive medicine has maintained that aging and egg quality is an irreversible process.  A new study from Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto on Co Q 10 and egg quality, presented at the Canadian Fertility and Andrology 2011 conference, suggests that it may be possible to improve egg quality and slow down the aging process. At this point, the study has just been done on mice but researchers feel the work looks promising and are about to launch a study in humans.
