FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"Extended stretch of dry weather"

It was a beautiful start to the week with blues skies and low humidity. Afternoon temperatures made it to 90° in town, and it looks like the heat will continue to build over the next few days. Rain prospects begin to increase slightly for the upcoming weekend.

Bright and sunny skies will take us through the late morning hours and temperatures will be quick to rise by mid day. Through the afternoon expect an abundance of sunshine and highs in the lower 90s. Humidity values stay relatively comfortable by May standards, but if you want to beat the heat head to the area beaches. Coastal spots will run a few degrees cooler as the west coast seabreeze kicks in during the day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail through the evening and temperatures will stay mild in the middle 60s.

High pressure remains in control of our weather for Wednesday, so plan on mostly to partly sunny skies each and every afternoon. Winds will continue to veer to the southeast pushing more moisture into Southwest Florida. Since humidity levels will be going up, overnight lows will be much milder as they settle into upper 60s to lower 70s by late in the week. During the day, afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 90s with mainly dry weather. Rain prospects look to go up slightly between 20-30% by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...

DOCTOR BRUCE HENSEL EXPLAINS. Return to index of stories...


GARLIC HEART-CLIP-PKG


GARY ZIMMERMAN WAS LOOKING FOR A WAY TO LOWER HIS CHOLESTEROL AND PROTECT HIS HEART

"my father had a double bypass."

BUT ZIMMERMAN DID NOT WANT TO TAKE PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES.

SO HE SAW DR MATTHEW BUDHOFF WHO IS PIONEERING RESEARCH ON A UNIQUE ODORLESS FORM OF GARLIC-AVAILABLE IN MOST HEALTH FOOD STORES-CALLED AGED KYOLIC GARLIC OR AGE

THE FIRST STEP; LOOK AT THE SUPPLEMENTS EFFECT ON THE BLOOD

"we looked at high blood pressure and cholesterol and it had a positive effect "

THEN BUDHOFFF DECIDED TO LOOK AT THE EFFECT ON THE HEART ITSELF

"to see if there is actually benefit to the arteries themselves; if there's heart disease benefit by taking aged garlic extract."

ZIMMERMAN AND 71 OTHER PATIENTS GOT CAT SCANS OF THEIR HEARTS BEFORE THE STUDY

ZIMMERAN'S SHOWED DEFINITE BLOCKAGE IN ONE OF HIS MAJOR ARTERIES.

THEN HE TOOK TWO PILLS EVERY MORNING AND TWO PILLS EVERY NIGHT

"After the patients have been on the garlic for a while, the doctor repeats the cat scan to see whether or not there has been any change at all"

THE FINDINGS: THE AGED GARLIC DID WHAT VIRTUALLY NO OTHER SUPPLEMENT HAD BEEN PROVEN TO DO

"The results showed that aged garlic extract actually causes some regression, a little bit of less plaque… it actually went away a little bit"

WE WATCHED AS ZIMMERMAN AND HIS DOCTOR REVIEWED HIS RESULTS FOR THE FIRST TIME

"it means I'll be taking a lot of garlic" Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


"Extended stretch of dry weather"

It was a beautiful start to the week with blues skies and low humidity. Afternoon temperatures made it to 90° in town, and it looks like the heat will continue to build over the next few days. Rain prospects begin to increase slightly for the upcoming weekend.

Bright and sunny skies will take us through the late morning hours and temperatures will be quick to rise by mid day. Through the afternoon expect an abundance of sunshine and highs in the lower 90s. Humidity values stay relatively comfortable by May standards, but if you want to beat the heat head to the area beaches. Coastal spots will run a few degrees cooler as the west coast seabreeze kicks in during the day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail through the evening and temperatures will stay mild in the middle 60s.

High pressure remains in control of our weather for Wednesday, so plan on mostly to partly sunny skies each and every afternoon. Winds will continue to veer to the southeast pushing more moisture into Southwest Florida. Since humidity levels will be going up, overnight lows will be much milder as they settle into upper 60s to lower 70s by late in the week. During the day, afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 90s with mainly dry weather. Rain prospects look to go up slightly between 20-30% by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...
