The Instruction Book

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

“Your genes provide the instruction book for all the proteins in your body, which control your physiology and biology. You may have a genetic predisposition to diabetes or obesity, but you are not predestined. Every moment, you have the power to transform your gene expression and reverse disease by changing the messages and instructions you send to your DNA. You can ‘turn off’ the genes your grandmother ‘turned on’ generations ago.”

If you are concerned about your health it would be good to read “the rest of the story” in his book.

Gastrointestinal Irritation

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

The most common side effect of nearly all prescription drugs is gastrointestinal irritation. Unfortunately this doesn’t show up with the standard examination tools including endoscopy.
The best “cure” is getting better nutritional and lifestyle habits and working to restore damaged intestines with simple interventions like probiotics. Work on those natural means which do not use pharmaceutical stress-alleviaiton modalities.


Your Intestines at Work

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

Did you know that your intestines produce about 80 percent of the body’s serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that stabilizes mood, prevents depression, and supports normal intestinal movement and function.

Antibiotics Destroy Good Bacteria

Friday, April 25th, 2014

One thing doctors don’t usually tell you is that antibiotics destroy bacteria – good as well as bad.And antacids and acid blockers interfere with normal digestion.
There are times when we need an antibiotic but living on them makes it almost impossible for the body to be normal. So if you are having abnormal problems check with your doctor to see what is really necessary.

Prescription Drugs = Poor Digestion

Many people don’t realize that prescription drugs interfere with digestion and good digestion is the foundation for good health.

One in Two Americans Affected

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

What life-threatening, life-sapping, energy-robbing condition affects 1 in every 2 Americans (that is every other person), including 80% of those overweight and up to 40% of normal weight people? What condition is responsible for more deaths from heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and dementia than anything else? What condition also causes acne, infertility, sexual dysfunction and depression?

What condition accounts for more then 70% of our $2.4 trillion annual health-care bill and will account for most of the $47 trillion we will spend globally over the next 20 years to deal with chronic disease? What is responsible for nearly twice as many deaths every year as infectious disease, even in the developing world?

And what condition is not even diagnosed in over 90% of those who suffer from it?

What condition are doctors not trained or reimbursed to diagnose, treat or prevent, yet makes up the majority of health-care visits and costs?

And what condition is nearly 100% preventable, treatable and reversible?

A Global Problem

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Diabetes is a worldwide problem.
Twenty-five years ago there was practically no diabetes among the Chinese people. In 2007 there were 24 million diabetics in China. In 2007 it was estimated that 240 million people worldwide had diabetes.
Sixty percent of the world’s diabetics will eventually come from Asia because it’s the most populated part of the world.
Think about this: from 1983 to 2008, the number of people int the world with diabetes increased sevenfold, from 35 to 240 million*
And this is the most preventable disease in the world. Where are we going?

Did You Know?

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Almost all people who are overweight (in America it’s 70 percent of the adult population) have “pre-diabetes”. This increases the risks of disease and death.
The worse fact is that doctors are not expected, trained, or paid to diagnose and treat this biggest chronic disease in America.
Diabetes is the hidden epidemic in the United States. Scientists estimate that this will effect 1 in 2 Americans by 2020.
And did you know it’s the leading cause of preventable death in America.

Check with your doctor, one who knows, because our government has no national recommendations for treatment.

Dangerous to Your Health

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

It might come as a surprise to some people but the two industries most dangerous to your health are the cattle industry and the dairy industry.
Both now are genetically modifying the animals and other industries are modifying the food they eat.
Two other very dangerous industries are the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies.
The reason for all of this is PROFIT. Now there’s nothing wrong with making a profit but to do so at the expense of a person’s health is criminal. But in many cases they don’t break the law.
These industries have bought our politicians and so laws are made to protect the unethical practices of these companies.

Now if you truly value your health you will cut way back on eating red meat and only that which has not been contaminated with GMOs and are really natural or organic. Cut out most dairy products. Cows have been induced to give more milk and thus less healthy.

Turning to organic foods and eating lots of fruits and vegetables will improve your health. When you rid your body of the toxic poisons of chemical treatments your health will improve.

Now we do need certain medicines but let’s start with our nutritious food and use only medicines for a short period of time to improve our health.

Lion’s Mane

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Dear Health-Conscious Friend,

In ancient China, the emperor was believed to be the son of heaven. And as you can imagine, the job came with some perks.

Not only did he enjoy supreme power to rule the entire nation, but he was the only one allowed to eat a certain medicinal mushroom that was said to give him “nerves of steel and the memory of a lion.”

This forbidden delicacy is called Lion’s Mane – or Hericium erinaceus. According to traditional Chinese medicine, it has the ability to stimulate the mind… soothe the stomach… and even cure ulcers of the digestive tract.

Lion’s Mane was highly prized as a medicinal cure in the Far East for centuries, but it was virtually unknown in Western medicine. That all changed in an instant when Japanese researchers made a startling discovery…
The Emperor’s Secret Protects Your Brain and Can Even Reverse Memory Loss
 No wonder ancient China’s head honcho wanted to keep Lion’s Mane all to himself!
 Scientists found that this strange-looking mushroom with the long, flowing white tendrils protects your brain and nervous system – and even relieves existing nerve damage.

That means… you now have a powerful weapon straight from Nature to help you battle the onset of age-related mental decline – and help restore youthful thinking, concentration and memory.
