Deadlier than Ebola

Does Ebola kill the most victims or does standard medical treatment kill more? The latest Ebola outbreak has caused more deaths than any other on record with up to 90% of infected people dying from it – or are they dying from the wrong medical care? Present treatments use intravenous fluids, antibiotics, fever reducing medicines, anti-clotting chemicals, blood pressure medicines and oxygen. The fact is that all this “medicine” works contrary to the body’s natural healing processes. First of all, the healing capacity of the body depends upon nutritional sufficiency and cellular respiration and Ebola victims have critical nutritional requirements that affect the outcome. Natural and nutrition medicine uses things like un-patentable magnesium chloride, iodine, selenium, vitamin C and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) that support the body’s innate healing capacity rather than toxic pharmaceuticals that cripple the immune system and further damage nutritional status. Unfortunately, Big Pharma pride is going to allow this Ebola mayhem to continue.

The amazing benefits of hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid – HA – is a water holding molecule that works as a “space filler” and cushioning agent in the body. HA cushions the joints and nerves, hydrates the skin and hair, and also fills the eye. HA is found in virtually every part of the body and is best known for its beauty-improving skin hydration and stimulating production of collagen in the skin. In fact, HA helps to retain over a 1000 times its weight in water within the cells of skin. But HA is so much more than a simple beauty panacea as it also works hard as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Did you know that HA fights gum disease and helps the gums regenerate healthy connective tissue in the gums? HA is also critical for the removal of waste matter from cells where there is little blood circulation. Hyaluronic acid promotes faster wound healing, increased energy, improved muscular strength and enhanced mental alertness. HA production naturally declines with age and by the time we reach our mid-40’s, the synthesis of HA is roughly half that required by the body.

Soy does NOT the body good

The latest on soy is that it alters the expression of genes associated with breast cancer – and not in a good way… The Journal of the National Cancer Institute recently published a randomized, placebo-controlled study of the effects of soy supplementation on gene expression and markers of breast cancer risk among women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. The study showed that soy ingestion brought changes in not just one but several genes that promote cancer cell cycle progression and cell proliferation. Soy is not only full of phytoestrogens, but it also has large quantities of potent enzyme inhibitors, which block the action of enzymes that both humans and animals need to digest protein. Consuming soy can drive certain cancers and also cause gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake. Don’t fall for the soy-ploy! Soy is on my cancer no-no list.

Avoid soy like it causes cancer....

Antimicrobials are harmful

The US FDA (Fools and Dummies Association) just can’t decide if common antibacterial, antimicrobial compounds (used in everything from hand sanitizers to deodorants) are causing health problems or not. Meanwhile, scientists are reporting that many pregnant women and their fetuses are at health risk when exposed to these substances. Triclosan and triclocarban, two of the most commonly used germ-killers in soaps and other everyday products, are now being found in EVERY urine samples from EVERY pregnant woman screened. What is worse than that is it is also being found in the umbilical cord blood samples – meaning that it can transfer to developing fetuses. The latest evidence shows that these antimicrobial compounds – used in more than 2,000 everyday products including toothpastes, soaps, detergents, carpets, paints, school supplies and toys – can lead to low birth weight, developmental problems and even antibiotic resistance. Don’t be a sheople people! Avoid these unnatural chemicals at all costs.

Fibroid tumors have causes too

Uterine fibroids are actually are benign tumors in the uterus. Although they are made from the same smooth muscle fibers as the uterine wall, uterine fibroids are usually round and denser than normal tissue and can cause abnormal bleeding, pain and abdominal pressure. As with any kind of tumor, uterine fibroids are a symptom of hormone imbalance, chronic subclinical fungal infection, vitamin B deficiency, lousy diets that usually include lots of soy and chronic exposure to plastics. The medical system wants to chop up these fibroids and suck them out of the body (very bad idea) while generally ignoring the causes and drugging the symptoms into submission. The best natural treatment would include hormone balancing herbs like maca and vitex, taking natural antifungals, changing the diet and avoiding estrogenizing soy products and BPA and BPS plasticizers.

Tattoo toxicology

The toxicology of tattoos is very poorly understood with long-term health problems like chronic disease, low thyroid, diabetes, cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm now tied back to the ink used for tattoos. Titanium, aluminum antimony, arsenic, beryllium, chromium, cobalt, lead, nickel, and selenium are commonly found in tattoo ink. One study shows that the ink used for one 3 X 5 inch tattoo can contain up to 23 micrograms of lead depending upon the ink and color chosen. A tattoo consists of ink particles trapped within dermal fibroblasts, macrophages, and mast cells. These ink particles now seep metals and other toxins into the body every single day for the rest of your life. The pigments used in traditional tattoo products are usually a trade secret and not shared and for the most part, not even scientifically based. 16% of U.S. adults now sport tattoos with teenage girls being a particularly high portion of the recent market. According to the Harris Poll, 17% of tattooed Americans regret their indelible marks for one reason or another.

Gee, what could the regrets be here?

Nightlights cause cancer!?

Would you believe me if I told you that sleeping with a night light can cause cancer? Your body’s natural ability to fight cancer is dependent in part on the sleep hormone melatonin.  A melatonin deficiency is a proven common factor in some cancers. In studies, melatonin given to study mice delayed the formation of tumors while significantly slowing tumor growth and turning off key cancer growth factors. Sleeping with a nightlight effectively shuts off nighttime production of melatonin and disrupts the body’s circadian rhythms, causing stress levels to rise and increasing your chance of cancer while hindering your body’s ability to fight existing cancer. The latest nightlight study even found that sleeping with a light on actually renders breast cancer completely resistant to the cancer drug tamoxifen.

If you are hypothyroid don’t eat this?

There sure is a lot of disinformation out there about hypothyroidism and cruciferous vegetables. The hype is that if you are on thyroid meds you should avoid all cruciferous vegetables. Well, partially true… The whole truth is that if you are iodine deficient you will be hypothyroid AND cruciferous vegetables will make iodine deficient hypothyroidism worse. The truth is that if you are hypothyroid you more likely than not need iodine/iodide desperately. Take iodine and iodide until you are no longer deficient and then you can eat all the healthy cruciferous vegetables you want – AND I seriously doubt you will be hypo-thyroid any more. It’s all about treating the causes of the symptoms of hypothyroid rather than drugging the symptoms. Did you know that in 19 years as a nutritionist I have never seen a cancer case that had a normal thyroid?

Treat the causes and the symptoms go away.

Marijuana is medicine but it is not harmless medicine

Marijuana has many medicinal qualities but too much marijuana smoking has a major negative effect on the brain, causing cognitive decline, poor attention and memory, and decreased IQ. According to the American Psychological Association, toking the whacky weed at least once a week brings neurocognitive damage. This is especially harmful for young people seeing as the number high school kids smoking today has nearly tripled in the last twenty years. Young people becoming addicted to marijuana can suffer significant changes in their brain structure and lose an average of six IQ points by adulthood. There is also a correlation between frequent smoking of high potency THC marijuana and increasing trouble with depression, anxiety and psychosis. Just a little something to think about…

Natural sun protection

Are taking a PABA supplement this summer? PABA is Para-AminoBenzioic Acid – what the body uses to pigment for healthy skin and for natural defense against sunburn. Our SAD (Standard American Diet) diets make most people, including children, deficient in the amino acid PABA. If you sunburn easily and rely on the toxic sunscreen slathers, you may be low on PABA. PABA is a natural skin cancer deterrent and antioxidant that fights free radicals to protect against oxidative damage to cell structures. Why are we warned about PABA in lotions? Because suntan lotions and other skin products use the toxic, carcinogenic chemical version of PABA. PABA is also great for is stimulating the growth of blood cells, keeping glands and intestines working smoothly and for reversing baldness and gray hair. Going to the beach this summer? Load up with 2,000mg a day of PABA for one week before intense outdoor sun and then cut back to 500mg a day after that. PABA will help build your sun tolerance and is not an instant fool-proof sun shield so use your noggin and always come out of the sun before you toast your skin.

A counterfeit Joe

A good old-fashioned cup of coffee is becoming harder and harder to find and most people don’t even know it! Unscrupulous coffee producers cut their coffee goods with – well, stuff – to fool the consumer and increase profits of course. Coffee harvests have been hurt by droughts and crop diseases, driving up prices and bringing surprise ingredients hiding in coffee because of this increasing coffee shortages. “Fillers” sometimes used range from bark to dirt, GMO corn and soybeans, glutenous barley and wheat, soybeans, rice, beans, acai seed, brown sugar and starch syrup. Once these non-coffee bean items are roasted and ground along with the coffee bean it becomes nearly impossible to tell that they are there without a science lab. What’s worse, a recent study predicts that 70% percent of the world’s coffee supply could falter by 2080. This year alone, Brazil’s coffee production has dropped by over 10%. Me? I buy whole organic beans and grind them myself.

GMO fed rat study under fire

You remember that shocking Séralini study out of the University of Caen last year? You know, the one where rats fed Monsanto‘s NK603 corn or exposed to Roundup herbicide in drinking water died earlier and had higher rates of tumors and organ damage than non-GMO fed rats? Well, this remarkable study has come under an all-out attack from the money-bags corporations who are losing bug bucks because of it. The study opponents are shouting that the experiment did not use enough rats and should therefore be shredded for- well, rat litter paper… The opponents further try to discredit the study by saying that the industry standard Sprague Dawley lab rats used in the study develop tumors anyhow if allowed to live long enough – ignoring the obvious fact that non-GMO control groups of rats still had much less cancer, lived longer and generally fared in better health overall. The opponents say all this while shoving their crappy 90 day studies (which were less thorough) at us to say “GMOs are safe”. The chief editor of the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology offered for Séralini and his team to voluntarily retract the study – which they refused to do. Sounds like a case of Snot Stew to me but I’m siding with Séralini on this one.

How to cause ADHD in your child

Yet another study has been cranked out in JAMA Pediatrics showing that taking acetaminophen during pregnancy ups the risk of ADHD by up to 40%. Of course, the more mommy takes the higher the risk. Acetaminophen crosses the placental barrier and affects fetal brain development by interfering with maternal hormones and also by causing fetal neurotoxicity. This study was actually generous towards Tylenol and other acetaminophen products as a study published last year showed how women taking acetaminophen during pregnancy increased the risk of their children having serious behavior problems by age 3 by a whopping 70%. Manufacturers shout “no way Jose” and blame the flu for causing these brain development problems. Well, the flu has been around for centuries and acetaminophen hasn’t. ADHD used to be unheard of and rates are skyrocketing in the last few decades while Tylenol sales are flourishing. The only way Tylenol is a miracle drug is in the sense that it is a miracle the FDA (Fostering Drug Addicts) hasn’t  risen to protect the masses and banned it yet.

Iodine is not optional

Every cell in the body requires the trace mineral iodine for healthy function. Even thyroid hormones are put together with iodine plus the amino acid tyrosine. Thyroid hormones set metabolic rates in the body and are needed for cellular activities – including cell division. Iodine, fluoride, chlorine and bromine are called halogens and share the same “key slot” pathway that iodine uses to enter the cell. But fluoride, chlorine and bromine get stuck and block this key slot entry point to prevent iodine from entering the cell, causing cellular dysfunction. This is why you can test for plenty of thyroid hormones in the blood but still have all the symptoms of a thyroid deficiency. Excess fluoride and chlorine come mainly from our water treatment systems and dentifrices. Bromine is found in baked goods and breads. The more you take in fluoride, chlorine and bromine, the more these plug up your cellular pathways and the more hypothyroid you become. Taking supplemental iodine/iodide will cause osmotic pressure to push the fluoride, chlorine and bromine out of the cell key slots so iodine can once again do its job. If you take too much iodine/iodide to fast then the body has to deal with the extra fluoride, chlorine and bromine that is displaced all at once leading to the false conclusion that you are “allergic” to iodine. 16mg of iodide a day will maintain health but a lot more will be needed to recover lost health. Painting tummies, breasts or parts of limbs with staining iodine (like Povidine iodine) is another great way to boost iodine levels. Iodine stains should last 24hrs if you have optimal levels in your body.

Organic food wins again!

Once again rehashing the obvious – a very recent food nutrition study published in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that organic foods have more flavor, more antioxidants and less pesticide residues than the non-organic food. Organic crops actually carry up to 69% more antioxidant compounds than the regular conventionally grown crops. According to this study, eating organic fruits and vegetables instead of conventionally grown ones would bring the nutritional equivalent of about two extra portions of fruit and vegetables a day – without having to eat more food to get it. No wonder we are hungry all the time and eating so much; we are starving for nutrients. This study also found health-damaging pesticide residues to be up to 100-fold lower in organic food compared to conventionally grown food. Did you know that conventional food packs twice as much toxic heavy metal contaminants as organic food?

You'll  get your money's worth in health switching to organic.

Going plastic free to avoid cancer

Plasticizing chemicals are found in everyday food storage containers, food can liners, bags and even on store receipts and paper money. Exposure to these chemicals causes breast cancer cells to grow faster. Duke University found that this exposure not only contributes to breast cancer cell progression, but also diminishes chemotherapy efficacy. Plasticizers can even render common breast cancer cells completely treatment resistant – regardless of whether the cancer is estrogen receptor positive or negative. People avoiding all plastics for a month or more still had small levels of plasticizing chemicals in their urine from contact within 48 hours because this stuff is so ubiquitous in the environment today. Interestingly, plasticizers are also common in the very IV bags and tubing used to deliver chemotherapy drugs that are supposed to “fight” cancer. Does anyone else see the conundrum here? We switched to glass containers in our home while avoiding canned goods and other plasticizers sources like the plague. Should you?

EDTA lowers cancer death risk

Want to lower your cancer death risk while you flush havoc wreaking calcium deposits out of your veins, arteries, and capillaries? There is a supplement called EDTA that will do just this. Taking EDTA can remove lead and excess iron from your body, balance bad cholesterol, boost blood flow, protect the brain and memory, strengthen bones, improve energy levels, help vision, enhance hearing and even renew the sense of smell. EDTA is made up of amino acids much like vinegar and EDTA  binds to many different heavy metals to chelate them out of the body via the kidneys, bowels and skin. Studies have shown these facts for decades but this miracle supplement hasn’t gone main stream medicine, probably because it is cheap, can’t be patented and it works. In an 18 year study, death from cancer was reduced 90% by treating participants with EDTA. Be very careful because more EDTA is not better. EDTA is a serious supplement that requires strict adherence to labeled directions.healthy couple

The effect on the child of too much gaming

Want a child that is well adjusted? Oxford University says to limit video game-playing to less than an hour a day for little kids and teenagers. When comparing children who were allowed a little video game-playing to the serious 3 hour or more gamers and to those who played none at all, researchers found that less than an hour a day gamers had neither positive nor negative effects. Out of the 5,000 children in this study they found that three out of four children and teenagers play video games daily, and that the ones who spent more than half their free time playing electronic games were not as well adjusted. The non-players and those who played for less than an hour were more likely to be satisfied with their lives, have fewer friendship and emotional problems, and were less hyperactive than the other group.The researchers also suggested that the influence of video games on children, for good or for bad, is small when compared to other factors, such as the overall family function, their school relationships, and whether they are ‘materially deprived’.

The parents set the limits.

The sacred cow of vaccination

The whole vaccine issue has sparked a veritable war of hate on both sides of the issue. Angry pro-vaxxers sometimes insist that mercury found in vaccines is completely safe even though many studies and legitimate vaccine injury claims show otherwise. Sometimes there are pronouncements made by pro-vaccination side that mercury is no longer being added to vaccines – which is true only in part. “No mercury added” doesn’t make vaccines mercury-free as mercury is still used in process for a lot of vaccines – just no extra mercury is added to some of them. Meanwhile, preggos, infants, children, elderly, pedestrians and grocery shoppers are all encouraged to or even badgered into to lining up for mercury-toxic vaccinations. Government agencies shout out how toxic mercury is – that is, when it comes from other sources, but we are found to let our brains fall out of our heads when it comes to the sacred cow of vaccinations.
