9 Seeing the Problem The agriculture industry and the food industry with a focus on profit are providing foods that are void of nutrition, toxic laden with herbicides, pesticides, and insecticides. And now significant amounts of our foods are being genetically altered so that increased amounts of herbicides and insecticides can be sprayed on them. Our foods are giving us diseases. Our protectors are silent. The medical industry and the pharmaceutical industry with a focus on profit are ready for the increase in diseases with their approved medications. Currently, medications and the medical system are the number one cause of death. The system and the medications are killing us. Our protectors are silent. The politicians have ignored the obvious and the science and have yielded to the lobbyists. The Affordable Health Care Act is poised to ensure that all pay into the system. Who are the protectors? 9

10 Death by Deception 1. Most people live as if our current toxic environment has no significant effect upon their health. They also live a lifestyle of consuming deficient/harmful foodstuffs promoted as something good to eat by the food industry and allowed by the FDA. 2. Over the course of time, their weakened body gets symptoms from the toxins and lack of basic nutrition. 3. They make a trip to the medical doctor to get a prescription for a foreign synthetic inorganic substance to heal the symptoms of their organic body. 4. The initial symptoms are abated by the drug(s), but the disease process continues and the weakened body is now more toxic from the drugs ( medicines ). 5. As things worsen and additional symptoms arise, a battery of tests are conducted to find a disease label to fit the symptoms. 6. A diagnosis is made. They find out that there is no cure, but that their disease can be treated. Eventually they learn to live with the dysfunction and the many drugs it takes to control the symptoms used to treat the incurable disease. 7. Sooner or later they are hospitalized due to their degenerative state. But now they are exposed to new risks from medical mistakes and infectious agents in the hospital. They are also fed more deficient/harmful foodstuffs at the hospital. 8. While their symptoms are continuing to be treated, they pray for the doctors, ask God to heal them, wonder how this disease came upon them, and hope the medicines (drugs) will heal them. 9. After heroic and expensive efforts they eventually die. If they are a born-again Christian, they are taken to heaven. In heaven they get the revelation that God is the healer and that inorganic synthetic substances cannot heal. They also realize that cleansing the temple, not eating unclean things, eating foods as God created them, and that the leaves of the trees for the healing of the nations were truths for living on planet earth. 10

11 Health in America Top 10 Leading Causes of Death per Year According to CDC 1. American Medical System: 783,936 Adverse Drug Reactions 106,000 Medical error 98,000 Bedsores 115,000 Infection 88,000 Malnutrition 108,800 Outpatients 199,000 Unnecessary Procedures 37,136 Surgery-Related 32,000 Total 783, Heart disease: 597, Cancer: 574, Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 138, Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 129, Accidents (unintentional injuries): 120, Alzheimer's: 83, Diabetes: 69, Kidney disease: 50, Influenza and Pneumonia: 50, Preventable medical mistakes are the third-leading cause of death in the US, right after heart disease and cancer. In all, preventable medical mistakes may account for one-sixth of all deaths that occur in the US annually. Dr. Mercola October 09, = Z1 11

12 US COST OF HEALTCARE The US has the most expensive health care in the world. It spends more on health care than the next 10 biggest spenders combined, yet ranks last in health and mortality when compared with 17 other developed nations. Dr. Mercola October 09, = Z1 US HEALTHCARE RANKING Despite having the most expensive health care system, the United States ranks last overall compared to six other industrialized countries Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom on measures of health system performance in five areas: quality, efficiency, access to care, equity and the ability to lead long, healthy, productive lives, according to a new Commonwealth Fund report. While there is room for improvement in every country, the U.S. stands out for not getting good value for its health care dollars, ranking last despite spending $7,290 per capita on health care in 2007 compared to the $3,837 spent per capita in the Netherlands, which ranked first overall.

13 FRAUDALENT CLINICAL RESEARCH It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine. No one knows the total amount provided by drug companies to physicians, but I estimate from the annual reports of the top 9 U.S.-based drug companies that it comes to tens of billions of dollars a year in North America alone. By such means, the pharmaceutical industry has gained enormous control over how doctors evaluate and use its own products. Its extensive ties to physicians, particularly senior faculty at prestigious medical schools, affect the results of research, the way medicine is practiced, and even the definition of what constitutes a disease. - Marcia Angell, MD Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON MEDICATIONS In 1999, the percentage of people who took at least one prescription drug was 44%. That number rose to 48% by 2008 and now stands at 70%. June 20th, 2013 by Richard Lenti - ADHD The number of prescriptions written for stimulant medication to treat ADHD increased of 500 percent since 1991, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. Diane Weaver Dunne updated 12/09/ STATIN DRUGS AND CANCER Women who take statin drugs have % increased risk of breast cancer, according to research published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. According to a 2011 study published in the journal Prostate, men who take statin drugs of any kind are significantly more prone to developing prostate cancer compared to other men. Even men who used to take statin drugs, but no longer do, have a higher-thannormal risk, according to the data. Compared to men who have never taken a statin drug, statin users were found to have a much as an 86 percent increased risk of developing prostate cancer. And the longer a man user statin drugs, the higher his risk, as cumulative doses of the drug appear to substantially elevate cancer risk over time. August 13, 2013 by: Jonathan Benson

14 STATIN DRUGS AND DIABETES One in four Americans aged 45 and older (32 million Americans) take statin drugs to lower cholesterol and supposedly "prevent heart disease." This Popular Drug Creates Over 60,000 New Diabetics Each Year. Dr. Mercola May 06, STATIN DRUGS AND ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS A review of the published statin research revealed a categorical lack of evidence to support the use of statin therapy in primary prevention of heart attacks. Statins may actually increase cardiovascular risk in women, the young and people with diabetes. The cholesterol-lowering drugs are also linked to an increased risk of cataracts, memory impairment, diabetes, erectile dysfunction and over 300 adverse health effects.

15 CANCER Based on rates from , 40.76% of men and women born today will be diagnosed with cancer of all sites at some time during their lifetime. This number can also be expressed as 1 in 2 men and women will be diagnosed with cancer of all sites during their lifetime. National Cancer Institute - CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY 5 YEAR SURVIVAL RATE The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA. Morgan, G. et al. (2004). Clinical Oncology 16, CANCER CHEMOTHERAPY TURNS HEALTY CELLS BAD "[T]he researchers found that chemotherapy can cause fibroblasts (cell DNA) to increase production of a molecule called WNT16B by 30-fold in tissues surrounding a tumor," explains the group Cancer Research U.K. in a recent report on the study. "This then helps cancer cells to grow, invade neighboring cells and resist chemotherapy," it adds. As if this is not bad enough, the same team found that another major side effect of chemotherapy is cancer cells grow more virulent than they were before the treatment. Like "superbugs" and "superweeds," which we now know developed resistance in response to conventional drug therapies and chemical sprayings, respectively, these "super" cancer cells no longer respond even to the most aggressive forms of chemotherapy, which means cancer itself is becoming more deadly. October 18, 2013 by: Jonathan Benson CANCER RADIATION 5 YEAR SURVIVAL RATE The median survival time of 580 patients with malignant disease treated during a 6-month period in 1988 was 12.4 months. The overall 5-year survival rate was 27%. For 105 patients treated definitively with radiation therapy, the median and 5-year survival rate figures were 26.0 months and 40%. For 149 patients treated with adjuvant radiation therapy (additional cancer treatment given after radiation), the 5-year survival rate was 62% (median survival rate not reached). 15

16 For 279 patients treated palliatively (just relieving of symptoms without effecting a method of cure), median and 5-year survival rate figures were 5.2 months and 3%.

MAMMOGRAMS FALSE POSITIVES The Cochrane Collaboration, a well-respected international organization that examines the science behind various medical interventions, reviewed seven randomized clinical trials (involving 600,000 women) that compared mammography screening with no screening. They discovered: Three studies showed that routine mammography screening did not significantly reduce the death rate. Four studies, which the researchers said had suboptimal randomization (a design flaw), showed a significant reduction. The combined data revealed that routine mammography screening conferred a 15 percent reduction in risk of death. But it also led to 30 percent over diagnosis and overtreatment, and the absolute risk reduction was just 0.5 percent. The Cochrane group reported that significantly more of the women who had mammograms had lumpectomies and mastectomies. For every 100 women screened, 10 will be told their mammograms are suspicious and that they need additional testing. A woman who has a mammogram every year for 10 years has a 65 percent chance more than 1 in 2 of having at least one false positive. Research has also found that routine mammography screening for women who are in their 40s or older than 75 has not been demonstrated to provide significant benefits. As a result, in 2009, the USPSTF updated its mammography screening guidelines, stating that mammography should begin at age 50, not age 40, through age 74. It also recommended that women have mammograms every two years, rather than annually. Dr. Julian Whitaker - 10/04/ MAMMOGRAMS 1000 CHEST X-RAYS The Institute of Medicine is finally acknowledging the toxic effects of mammogram radiation as a significant factor in the development of breast cancer; just one mammogram can expose you to the radiation equivalent of 1,000 chest x-rays 16

17 Mammograms have been scientifically proven not to save women s lives, and do not improve breast cancer survival rates over annual physical examination alone Your immune system is your greatest weapon against breast cancer; research now shows that 30 percent of breast tumors go away on their own, because a healthy immune system is so adept at eradicating cancer Dr. Mercola - March 03, MAMMOGRAMS More concerning, the researchers found that the more times women were screened the greater their odds of getting "false positives" on mammograms. As reported by the LA Times: For example, among women between the ages of 66 and 74 who already had health problems, 48% of those who had annual mammograms had at least one falsepositive reading during a 10-year period. But among those who were screened every other year, only 29% had a false-positive result. And among women between the ages of 75 and 89 with preexisting health problems, 48.4% of those screened every year had at least one false-positive reading during a 10-year span, compared with only 27.4% of those who had less frequent tests." The LA Times article went on to estimate that if all American women between had annual mammograms instead of biannual ones, this would result in 3.86 million more false-positives and 1.15 million more recommendations for biopsies. Another "invisible" problem is the fact that the so-called "low-energy" radiation wavelengths used in breast mammography are far more carcinogenic than "high energy" waves to which they are compared. This means that x- ray mammography is planting the seeds of future radiation-induced breast cancer into millions of women, all in the name of "prevention" and "awareness."

Percentage of the U.S. population that tests positive to one or more allergens: 55%. Rank of allergies among other leading chronic diseases in the U.S.: 5th. Odds that a child with one allergic parent will develop allergies: 33%. Odds that a child with two allergic parents will develop allergies: 70%. VACCINES AND ALZHEIMER S According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "The following substances are found in flu vaccines: aluminum, antibiotics, egg protein, formaldehyde, human aborted fetal apparatus (dead human tissue), monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosol (mercury)." Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, a world-leading immunogeneticist, has extensively studied the effects of the flu vaccine on neurological health. The results of his research indicate that an individual has a 10-time greater chance of getting Alzheimer's disease after receiving five flu shots in the course of their life compared to individuals who have had zero to one shot in their lifetime. September 26, 2012 by: Dr. David Jockers NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES At least half the US population fails to meet the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin B-6, vitamin A, magnesium, calcium, and zinc, and 33% of the population does not meet the RDA for folate. Adequate dietary intake of both folate and vitamin B-6 prevents the accumulation of homocysteine in the bloodstream. Elevated blood concentrations of homocysteine represent an independent risk factor for the development of CVD, stroke, and deep vein thrombosis.

21 Daily Pollutants WATER Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (birth control pills, antidepressants, painkillers, shampoos, etc.) are entering rivers from sewage treatment plants or leaching into groundwater from septic systems. Testing has revealed that at least 46 million Americans have been exposed to trace amounts of pharmaceuticals in drinking water supplies. Fluoride The truth is that more and more evidence shows that fluorides and dental fluorosis are actually associated with increased tooth decay. The most comprehensive US review was carried out by the National Institute of Dental Research on 39,000 school children aged 5-17 years. It showed no significant differences in terms of DMF (decayed, missing and filled teeth). What it did show was that high decay cities ( percent) have 9.34 percent more decay in the children who drink fluoridated water. Furthermore, a 5.4 percent increase in students with decay was observed when 1 ppm fluoride was added to the water supply. Nine fluoridated cities with high decay had 10 percent more decay than nine equivalent non-fluoridated cities. The world's largest study on dental caries, which looked at 400,000 students, revealed that decay increased 27 percent with a 1ppm fluoride increase in drinking water. In Japan, fluoridation caused decay increases of 7 percent in 22,000 students, while in the US a decay increase of 43 percent occured in 29,000 students when 1ppm fluoride was added to drinking water. The enamel defects observed in hypothyroidism are identical to "dental fluorosis." Endemic fluorosis areas have been shown to be the same as those affected with iodine deficiency, considered to be the world's single most important and preventable cause of mental retardation, affecting 740 million people a year. Iodine deficiency causes brain disorders, cretinism, miscarriages and goiter, among many other diseases. 21

22 Fluoride: Worse than We Thought - by Andreas Schuld - 14 April human studies have linked fluoride with lowered IQ in children, including recent research from Harvard, and 100 animal studies linking it to brain damage Dr. Mercola December 03, Chlorine According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality, the cancer risk to people who drink chlorinated water is 93 percent higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine. The residents of a small town in Pennsylvania who ate diets rich in saturated animal fats and milk had no heart attacks until they switched from mountain spring water to chlorinated water. Research from the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands discovered that people who swam in chlorinated pools or polluted waters as children had 2.2 to 2.4 times the risk of developing melanoma compared to those who did not swim in chlorinated waters. Male smokers who drank chlorinated tap water for more than 40 years had double the risk of bladder cancer as smoking males who drank non-chlorinated water. SWEETENERS Aspartame Aspartame is the technical name for NutraSweet and Equal. According to the FDA, aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives. Some of the symptoms reported are: headaches/migraines, dizziness, seizures, nausea, numbness, muscle spasms, weight gain, rashes, depression, fatigue, irritability, tachycardia, insomnia, vision problems, hearing loss, heart palpitations, breathing difficulties, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, loss of taste, tinnitus, vertigo, memory loss, and joint pain. According to researchers and physicians studying the adverse effects of aspartame, the following chronic illnesses can be triggered or worsened by ingesting aspartame: Brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson s 22

23 disease, Alzheimer s, mental retardation, lymphoma, birth defects, fibromyalgia, and diabetes. Dr. Mercola - November 06, Sugar The average American now consumes 175 pounds of sugar per year, which equals 46 teaspoons a day. Not only does sugar lack nutrients, but it actually robs the body of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Sugar is the food to fuel cancer. Sugar has been documented to cause such problems as: 1. Is addictive 2. Lowers the immune system 3. Feeds cancer cells 4. Feeds the overgrowth of yeast in the colon 5. Significantly promotes obesity and diabetes 6. Causes inflammation, which is a direct component toward all diseases 7. Acidifies the body, which promotes osteoporosis and cancer Dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup 1. Significant risk of weight gain and obesity - A study conducted by Princeton University found that rats that were fed HFCS gained fat 300% more quickly than those fed an equal (or slightly larger) serving of fruit-derived sugar. 2. Increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes - Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup can lead to a huge increase in the likelihood of developing diabetes. 3. Hypertension and elevated bad cholesterol levels - High-fructose doesn t just make your body fat, it also makes your heart fat. There is a strong link between high fructose corn syrup and elevated triglyceride and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels. 4. Liver damage - HFCS is especially destructive to your liver. When combined with a sedentary lifestyle, permanent liver scarring can occur. 5. Mercury Exposure from HFCS - One study found mercury in over 50% of samples tested. Dr. Edward F. Group III - Updated on August 22, HFCS turns up in some very unexpected places, such as the products below. Progresso Bread Crumbs (Plain) Sunsweet Prunes 23

In response to this study, James Turner, chairman of the national consumer education group Citizens for Health issued the following statement: "The report makes it clear that the artificial sweetener Splenda and its key component sucralose pose a threat to the people who consume the product. Hundreds of consumers have complained to us about side effects from using Splenda and this study... confirms that the chemicals in the little yellow package should carry a big red warning label." Dr. Mercola April 26, A new study published in the journal Diabetes Care, lead by researchers at the Center for Human Nutrition, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, set out to test the metabolic effects of sucralose in obese subjects who did not use nonnutritive sweeteners. Seventeen subjects underwent a 5-hour oral glucose tolerance test on two separate occasions preceded by consuming either sucralose (experimental condition) or water (control condition) 10 min before the glucose load in a randomized crossover design. A single dose of sucralose lead to a 0.6 mmol/l increase in plasma glucose concentrations, a 20% increase in insulin levels, a 22% greater peak insulin secretion rate, and a 7% decrease in insulin 24

25 clearance, an indication of decreased insulin sensitivity. They concluded that sucralose affects the glycemic and insulin responses to an oral glucose load in obese people who do not normally consume NNS. Sayer Ji, May 2, ?utm_source= Greenmedinfo&utm_medium= &utm_term=0_193c8492fb-a7e55c8c Saccharin or Sweet n Low In the late 1970s, a scientist in Canada named Douglas Arnold performed a study finding that saccharin caused bladder cancer in 50 percent of the laboratory animals fed high doses of saccharin (although this has not been shown in humans). Moreover, in 1992, tests performed on rats showed that they had physiological differences from humans that made them more susceptible to bladder cancer from saccharin. Nonetheless, somewhat ironically considering its reputation, saccharin is probably the safest artificial sweetener on the market. Dr. Mercola, July 04, Per capita consumption of refined sugars in the United States from 1970 to Adapted from the US Department of Agriculture MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (MSG) In 1959, the FDA labeled MSG as "Generally Recognized as Safe" (GRAS). Dr. Russell Blaylock, a board-certified neurosurgeon and author of Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills. explains that MSG is an excitotoxin, which means it overexcites your brain cells to the 25

26 point of damage or death -- and potentially contributing to learning disabilities, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease and more. Adverse effects that have been linked to regular consumption of MSG include: obesity, eye damage, headaches, fatigue, disorientation, and depression. Even the FDA states: "Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid, as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body, as well. Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's chorea. Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain." The FDA also admits that "short-term reactions" known as MSG Symptom Complex can occur in certain groups of people, namely those who have eaten "large doses" of MSG or those who have asthma. According to the FDA, MSG Symptom Complex can involve symptoms such as: Numbness Burning sensation Tingling Facial pressure or tightness Chest pain or difficulty breathing Headache Nausea Rapid heartbeat Drowsiness Weakness Studies from the 1970s suggested that 25 to 30 percent of the U.S. population was intolerant of MSG. The use of MSG has expanded dramatically and it is estimated that up to 40 percent of the population may be affected. How to Keep MSG Out of Your Diet The main component of MSG is glutamic acid. There are over 40 labeled ingredients that contain glutamic acid, but you'd never know it just from their names alone. In general, if a food is processed you can assume it contains MSG (or one of its pseudo-ingredients). So 26

27 if you stick to a whole, fresh foods diet, you can pretty much guarantee that you'll avoid this toxin. The other place where you'll need to watch out for MSG is in restaurants, particularly fast food restaurants. To be on the safe side, you should also know what ingredients to watch out for on packaged foods. Here is a list of ingredients that ALWAYS contain MSG: Autolyzed Yeast, Calcium Caseinate, Gelatin, Glutamate, Glutamic Acid, Hydrolyzed Protein, Monopotassium Glutamate, Monosodium Glutamate, Sodium Caseinate, Textured Protein, Yeast Extract, Yeast Food, Yeast Nutrient These ingredients OFTEN contain MSG or create MSG during processing: Flavors and Flavorings, Seasonings, Natural Flavors and Flavorings, Natural Pork Flavoring, Natural Beef Flavoring, Natural Chicken Flavoring, Soy Sauce, Soy Protein Isolate, Soy Protein, Bouillon, Stock Broth, Malt Extract, Malt Flavoring, Barley Malt, Anything Enzyme Modified, Carrageenan, Maltodextrin, Pectin, Enzymes, Protease, Corn Starch, Citric Acid, Powdered Milk Anything, Protein Fortified, Anything Ultra- Pasteurized Dr. Mercola, Posted: 03/16/ HYDROGENATED OILS Hydrogenated fats are made by bubbling hydrogen gas with nickel as a catalyst to make the oil more solid at room temperature. This is how margarine and Crisco are made. The oil is heated to 248 to 410 degrees F and combined with hydrogen to harden it. It becomes a poison to the body, a source of free radicals, a ticket to heart disease, and should not be consumed. Hydrogenated oils and trans-fats cause a cell-by-cell failure of the human body by destroying the porosity and flexibility of healthy cell membranes. Consider this list of detrimental health effects caused by hydrogenated oils: Directly promotes heart disease Promotes cancers: breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer Results in low birth weight infants Raises LDL (bad) cholesterol and lower HDL (good) cholesterol Raises blood sugar levels and promotes weight gain 27

28 Interferes with the absorption of essential fatty acids and DHA Impairs brain function and damages brain cells Accelerates tumor growth Accelerates the progress of type-2 diabetes Impairs immune system function Promotes attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Impairs development of the brains of fetuses Causes gallbladder disease Causes liver disease Clogs blood, makes blood cells stick together Blocks the body's creation of natural pain-reducing hormones (eicosanoids) Causes the creation of free radicals that promote inflammation Creates nutritional deficiencies of healthy oils and essential fatty acids (EFAs) Promotes cystic fibrosis Lowers essential fatty acids in the breast milk of nursing mothers Clogs artery walls and promotes atherosclerosis Cause gum disease and rotted teeth Lowers tissue oxygen intake Causes infertility Directly damages blood vessels Causes high blood pressure Weaken cell walls and compromises cellular structure Causes dandruff and acne Mike Adams, July 27, VEGETABLE OILS Butter consumption at the turn of the century was eighteen pounds per person per year, and the use of vegetable oils almost nonexistent. Yet cancer and heart disease were rare. Today butter consumption hovers just above four pounds per person per year while vegetable oil consumption has soared--and cancer and heart disease are endemic. Sally Fallon - The problem is that polyunsaturated fats are highly unstable and oxidize easily (goes rancid) in the body (if they haven t already oxidized during processing or by light 28

29 exposure while sitting on the grocery store shelf). These oxidized fats cause inflammation and mutation in cells. Vegetable oils contain a very high concentration of Omega 6 fatty acids and polyunsaturated fats, which cause an imbalance of these oils in the body. Omega 6 fats are easily oxidized with heat or light exposure. This is another reason that when these types of fats/oils are incorporated into tissue like skin cells, the heat and light from sun exposure can increase skin cancer risk. CANOLA OIL Like all modern vegetable oils, canola oil goes through the process of caustic refining, bleaching and degumming all of which involve high temperatures or chemicals of 29

30 questionable safety. And because canola oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which easily become rancid and foul-smelling when subjected to oxygen and high temperatures, it must be deodorized. The standard deodorization process removes a large portion of the omega-3 fatty acids by turning them into trans fatty acids. A large portion of canola oil used in processed food has been hardened through the hydrogenation process, which introduces levels of trans fatty acids into the final product as high as 40 percent. The consumer has no clue about the presence of trans fatty acids in canola oil because they are not listed on the label. Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, PhD, 28 July : MILK One of the main arguments for USDA recommendations is that drinking milk or equivalent dairy products will reduce the risk of fractures. But in fact there s very little evidence that milk consumption is associated with reduced fractures. Walter Willett, MD, PhD, professor of epidemiology and head of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health, Ingredients Added to Cow s Milk A veritable hormone cocktail: Including pituitary, steroid, hypothalamic, and thyroid hormones Gastrointestinal peptides: Nerve and epidermal growth factors, and the growth inhibitors MDGI and MAF rbgh (Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone): A genetically engineered hormone directly linked to breast, colon and prostate cancer. This is injected into cows to increase milk production. Pus: National averages show at least 322 million cell-counts of pus per glass! This is well-above the human limit for pus-intake, and has been directly linked to paratuberculosis bacteria, as well as Crohn s disease. The pus comes from infected udders on the cows known as mastitis. Blood Cells: The USDA allows up to 1.5 million white blood cells per milliliter of commonly-sold milk. Yes, you are drinking cows blood in the milk and the USDA allows this! Antibiotics: Currently, cows are in such a state of disease and mistreatment that they are continually being injected with antibiotic medicines and rubbed down with chemical-laden ointments to deal with their chronic infections. Currently, 30

31 regulating committees only test for 4 of the 85 drugs in dairy cows. This means that the other 81 drugs in cow s milk are coming directly into your glasses and bodies. Estimates show that 38% of milk in the U.S. is contaminated with sulfa drugs or other antibiotics, according to a study by the Centre for Science in the Public Interest and published in the Wall Street Journal on December 29, A study from the FDA data showed that over half of all milk was laden with traces of pharmaceuticals yet nothing has been done to control this. Dr. Edward F. Group III, Updated on September 10, MEAT The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not permit the use of hormones in raising hogs or chickens, turkeys and other fowl. Hormones are still used as growth promoters in cattle and sheep. It's estimated that two-thirds of the cattle raised in the U.S. are given hormones. The USDA does allow farmers to use antibiotics to prevent or treat diseases in all farmed animals, although the drugs must be withheld for a period of time prior to slaughter so that any residues fall below federal limits. Hormones are not added to poultry feeds. 10/31/ Since the 1950s, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a number of steroid hormone drugs for use in beef cattle and sheep, including natural estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and their synthetic versions. FDA web site, Updated: 02/08/ A new study recently published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) reveals that inorganic arsenic is still prevalent in virtually all conventional chicken meat, as an arsenical drug similar in composition to roxarsone is still being widely used and fed to conventional chickens. September Ethan A. Huff SOY One of the primary reasons it would be wise for you to avoid soy is that more than 90 percent of soybeans grown in the United States are genetically modified. Since the introduction of genetically engineered foods in 1996, we've had an upsurge in low birth weight babies, infertility, and other problems in the U.S., and animal studies have shown 31

32 devastating effects from genetically engineered soy including allergies, sterility, birth defects, and offspring death rates up to five times higher than normal. Soybean crops are also heavily sprayed with chemical herbicides, such glyphosate, which a French team of researchers have found to be carcinogenic. Soybeans -- even organically grown soybeans -- naturally contain "antinutrients" such as saponins, soyatoxin, phytates, trypsin inhibitors, goitrogens and phytoestrogens. Traditional fermentation destroys these antinutrients, which allows your body to enjoy soy's nutritional benefits. However, most Westerners do not consume fermented soy, but rather unfermented soy, mostly in the form of soymilk, tofu, TVP, and soy infant formula. Unfermented soy has the following 10 adverse affects on your body: 1. High Phytic Acid (Phytates): Reduces assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting and long, slow cooking, but only with long fermentation. High-phytate diets have caused growth problems in children. 2. Trypsin inhibitors: Interferes with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals, trypsin inhibitors in soy caused stunted growth. 3. Goitrogens: Potent agents that block your synthesis of thyroid hormones and can cause hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked with autoimmune thyroid disease. Goitrogens interfere with iodine metabolism. 4. Phytoestrogens/Isoflavones: Plant compounds resembling human estrogen can block your normal estrogen and disrupt endocrine function, cause infertility, and increase your risk for breast cancer. 5. Hemagglutinin: A clot-promoting substance that causes your red blood cells to clump, making them unable to properly absorb and distribute oxygen to your tissues. 6. Synthetic Vitamin D: Soy foods increase your body's vitamin D requirement, which is why companies add synthetic vitamin D2 to soymilk (a toxic form of vitamin D). 7. Vitamin B12: Soy contains a compound resembling vitamin B12 that cannot be used by your body, so soy foods can actually contribute to B12 deficiency, especially among vegans. 8. Protein Denaturing: Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein (TVP). Chemical 32

33 processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines. 9. MSG: Free glutamic acid, or MSG, is a potent neurotoxin. MSG is formed during soy food processing, plus additional MSG is often added to mask soy's unpleasant taste. 10. Aluminum and Manganese: Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum, which is toxic to your nervous system and kidneys, and manganese, which wreaks havoc on your baby's immature metabolic system. Soy's anti-nutrients are quite potent. Drinking just two glasses of soymilk daily provides enough of these compounds to alter a woman's menstrual cycle. But if you feed soy to your infant or child, these effects are magnified a thousand-fold. Infants fed soy formula may have up to 20,000 times more estrogen circulating through their bodies as those fed other formulas. You should NEVER feed your infant a soy-based formula! In fact, infants fed soy formula take in an estimated five birth control pills' worth of estrogen every day. As dangerous as unfermented soy is, fermented soy from organic soybeans is a different story altogether and can be a beneficial part of your diet. Fermented soy is a great source of vitamin K2, and K2 (combined with vitamin D) is essential in preventing osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and various types of cancer. Note that tofu is NOT on this list and is among the soy foods I do not recommend. Traditionally fermented soy products include: Miso, Tempeh, Natto, and Soy sauce (as long as it's fermented in the traditional way, and not all are). - Dr. Mercola - The Health Dangers of Soy 08/23/ NANOPARTICLES A new study published in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy titled, "Effects of Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles in Human Gastric Epithelial Cells In Vitro," reveals for the first time that the nanoparticle form of the common "whitening" agent known as titanium dioxide is capable of inducing "tumor-like" changes in exposed human cells. TiO2 is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium, and has a wide range of industrial applications as a "whitening" pigment in plastics, ceramic glazes, and paints. It is used in sunscreens as a UV absorbing "sun protection factor," due to its high refractive index. Most of our risk of exposure comes from its use in toothpaste, drugs, and excipient-heavy supplements as a pill coating, and food products, including even milk (to 'improve' appearance and texture). As reported by Everydayhealth.com, "You ingest around 100 trillion nanoparticles every 33

34 day, researchers at Binghamton University and Cornell University say." So, what are some common brands who use it? Nanotitanium is found in products produced by Jello, Nestlé, M&M's, Mother's, Mentos, Albertson's, Hostess and Kool Aid. Sayer Ji, September 24th nanoparticles?utm_source= Greenmedinfo&utm_medium= &utm_term=0_193c8492fb-3183a8bf GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS (GMOs) Genetically modified (GM) foods are food items that have had their DNA directly altered through genetic engineering, which is the result of combining genes from different organisms. To create genetically engineered crops, genes from bacteria, viruses, plants, animals and even humans have been inserted into plants like soybeans, corn, canola, and cotton. GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. Virtually all commercial GMOs are engineered to withstand direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. Despite biotech industry promises, none of the GMO traits currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit. Are GMOs safe? Most developed nations do not consider GMOs to be safe. In more than 60 countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, there are significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs. In the U.S., the government has approved GMOs based on studies conducted by 34

35 the same corporations that created them and profit from their sale. In the U.S., GMOs are in as much as 80% of conventional processed food in our grocery stores. High-Risk Crops Alfalfa (first planting 2011) Canola (approx. 90% of U.S. crop) Corn (approx. 88% of U.S. crop in 2011) Cotton (approx. 90% of U.S. crop in 2011) Papaya (most of Hawaiian crop; approximately 988 acres) Soy (approx. 94% of U.S. crop in 2011) Sugar Beets (approx. 95% of U.S. crop in 2010) Zucchini and Yellow Summer Squash (approx. 25,000 acres) ALSO high-risk: animal products (milk, meat, eggs, honey, etc.) because of contamination in feed. Monitored Crops (those for which suspected or known incidents of contamination have occurred, and those crops which have genetically modified relatives in commercial production with which cross-pollination is possible): Beta vulgaris (e.g., chard, table beets) Brassica napa (e.g., rutabaga, Siberian kale) Brassica rapa (e.g., bok choy, mizuna, Chinese cabbage, turnip, rapini, tatsoi) Curcubita (acorn squash, delicata squash, patty pan) Flax Rice Wheat Common Ingredients Derived from GMO Risk Crops Amino Acids, Aspartame, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Ascorbate, Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Ethanol, Flavorings ( natural and artificial ), High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Lactic Acid, Maltodextrins, Molasses, Monosodium Glutamate, Sucrose, Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP), Xanthan Gum, Vitamins, Yeast Products. There are NO peer-reviewed scientific papers establishing the safety of GMO crops. There are, however, both clinical and peer-reviewed scientific papers showing the hazards of GMO crops, including harmful secondary effects 35

36 Epidemiological patterns show there s an identical rise in over 30 human diseases alongside our increased usage of glyphosate and the increased prevalence of genetically engineered proteins in our food Glyphosate is not just an herbicide. It was originally patented as a mineral chelator. It immobilizes nutrients, making them unavailable for your body. It s also patented as a potent antibiotic that can devastate human gut bacteria The EPA recently doubled the amount of glyphosate allowed in food. Soybean oil is now allowed to contain a whopping 400 times the limit at which it can impact your health Dr. Mercola, October 06, = Z1 The EPA, whose mission is to "to protect human health and the environment," has approved Monsanto's request to allow levels of glyphosate (Roundup) contamination in your food up to a million times higher than have been found carcinogenic. Sayer Ji, July 2nd cake?utm_source= Greenmedinfo&utm_medium= &utm_term=0_193c8492fb-5662b13a Glyphosate residues of up to 4.4 mg/kg have been detected in stems, leaves and beans of glyphosate-resistant soy, indicating metabolism of the herbicide. This means that the Roundup Ready plants are absorbing the herbicide and you cannot simply wash it off. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup. 36

42 MERCURY 1. Industrial exposure to mercury is significant and mostly comes from coal burning (220 million pounds a year) and chlor-alkali plants. Over the past 100 years, there has been a 30-fold increase in mercury deposition, 70%t of which is from human sources. In fact, there was an exponential peak in mercury occurring in the last 40 years due to major industrialization. Much of this mercury comes from coal-fired industrial plants and from chlor-alkali plants that use mercury in the process of making chlorine used in plastics, pesticides, PVC pipes, and more. 2. The main ways that humans are exposed to mercury are from contaminated fish and dental amalgams or silver fillings. We get mercury in our bodies from many different sources including mercury vapors in ambient air, ingesting it via drinking water, fish, dental amalgams, vaccines, occupational exposures, home exposures including fluorescent light bulbs, thermostats, batteries, red tattoo dye, skin-lightening creams, over-the-counter products such as contact lens fluid and neosynephrine, and more. 3. You absorb about 80 percent of inhaled mercury vapor and nearly 100 percent of the mercury in fish through your gut. 4. Mercury can affect nearly all your organs, especially the brain, heart, kidneys, and gut. Many chronic diseases may be caused or worsened by mercury, including neurologic disease, ADHD, autism, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, and more. 5. Some of us are genetically better adapted to detoxify mercury than others, leading to variable effects within the population. 6. You should reduce your exposure by avoiding large ocean fish (like tuna, swordfish, shark, and tilefish) and river fish. Eat only small wild fish. If it fits in your pan, it is probably okay. 7. Blood tests are relatively worthless for analyzing mercury toxicity, unless you have had a significant recent exposure or eat a lot of sushi or tuna. Hair tests only check for mercury from fish, not from fillings so they only give you a partial picture. 8. The only way to find out your total body load of mercury is to take a medication with sulfur molecules that binds to the mercury like fly paper. This is called DMSA or DMPS. 9. This test should ONLY be done by a trained physician and involves taking one dose of this medicine, followed by a 6- or 24-hour urine collection to see how much comes out. (In my opinion, the most reliable testing is done by 42

43 10. If you are toxic and sick, you may consider addressing your dental health by seeing a biological dentist who can safely help you deal with mercury in your mouth. Going to see a conventional dentist who drills out your fillings without any precautions or protection can lead to serious health consequences. I strongly advise against it. However, amalgam filling removal CAN be done safely and effectively done by a dentist trained in the correct techniques. Dr Mark Hyman, 02/20/ ALUMINUM Aluminum is found in food items, cosmetic products and vaccines. Aluminum cookware is another common source. There is more aluminum in the environment today than ever before in human history. While there has always been aluminum in the environment, the amount available for absorption into the human body is at an all time high. Foods that contain aluminum include processed cheese, table salt, baking powder, bleached flour, cake mixes, prepared dough and baby formula. Medicines that contain aluminum include antacids, buffered aspirin and painkillers. The cosmetic and personal care product industries are unregulated for harmful ingredients and many contain aluminum powder, which the Environmental Working Group lists as having high health concerns as a neurotoxin. Aluminum powder is found in 1,718 products listed in the EWG database. The EWG provides an independent database with ratings of safety for personal care products based on toxicity of ingredients. The products found to contain toxic aluminum include eye liner, eye shadow, mascara, lip gloss, nail polish, hair spray, deodorant (antiperspirants), and hair color. Aluminum pans used for cooking have been shown to leach harmful aluminum into the food items that are cooked in them, so these should be eliminated whenever possible. Almost all vaccines contain the heavy metal aluminum hydroxide in them. Michelle Goldstein, September 27, Your antiperspirant probably contains aluminum, and that aluminum may be absorbed into your breast tissue where it could potentially increase your risk of breast cancer or other health problems. Women with breast cancer have higher levels of aluminum in their nipple aspirate fluid (NAF), a fluid present in the breast duct tree. Studies show aluminum 43

44 from antiperspirants is deposited in breast tissue, and animal studies have also found that aluminum can cause cancer. In a 2007 study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, researchers tested breast samples from 17 breast-cancer patients who had undergone mastectomies. The women who used antiperspirants had deposits of aluminum in their outer breast tissue. Concentrations of aluminum were higher in the tissue closest to the underarm than in the central breast. Dr. Mercola - October 17, TABLE SALT Unrefined sea salt is healthy. Table salt, whether marine or not, is toxic it's poisonous to the body and is responsible, in great part, to the onset of many terrible diseases including thyroid and metabolic dysfunction. Dr. David Brownstein weighs in heavily on this matter saying, "Nobody makes a distinction between unrefined and refined salt. They 'lump' all salt together as a bad substance. This is a terrible mistake. There are two forms of salt available in the market place: refined and unrefined. Refined salt has had its minerals removed and has been bleached to give it the white appearance that we are accustomed to seeing with salt. It is the fine, white salt that is available at almost any restaurant or grocery store. Refined salt has been bleached and exposed to many toxic chemicals in order to get it to its final product. It has aluminum, ferrocyanide, and bleach in it. I believe this refining process has made it a toxic, devitalized substance that needs to be avoided." "Unrefined salt, on the other hand," Brownstein continues, "has not been put through a harsh chemical process. It contains the natural minerals that were originally part of the product. Its mineral content gives it a distinct color. The colors of unrefined salt can vary depending on where it is taken from. This is due to the changing mineral content of the various brands of salt. It is the minerals in unrefined salt that provide all the benefits of this product. The minerals supply the body with over 80 trace elements needed to maintain and sustain health. Furthermore, the minerals elevate the ph (correct acidity) and lower blood pressure. Our maker gave us salt to use in our diet unrefined salt with its full complement of minerals. It should be the salt of choice. It is a vital ingredient that needs to be part of everyone's diet." Good salts to use are: Celtic (natural sea salt) 44

45 Himalayan Crystal Salt (mined 5,000 feet deep below the Himalayan mountain range ) Redmond Real Salt (mineral rich salt deposit formed by an ancient sea in Utah). Dr. Mark Sircus, February 15th TOXINS IN THE HOME 1. DEET (N, N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide) is the most common active ingredient in insect repellents. One-third of all Americans use this repellant, which has been shown to be toxic to the central nervous system. Natural insect repellant solutions exist; otherwise, candles with eucalyptus oil or citronella oil in the area will do the trick. 2. Glyphosate is the chief ingredient used in Monsanto's Roundup, which has been link to birth defects, DNA damage, hormone disruption, cancer and neurological disorders. Ditch this weed killer for good. Get rid of weeds naturally, using boiling water, vinegar, salts or pulling them out by hand. 3. Phthalates are most commonly found in air fresheners. They also exist in vinyl, wood varnishes and lacquers. Pthalates disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive and neurological damage. Avoid the word "fragrance" on air fresheners, as it can be a synonym for pthalates. Candles are a better alternative. 4. Bisphenol A (BPA), which is found in nine out of ten Americans, is used in food containers, baby bottles, plastic bottles and CDs. Scientists have linked BPA to heart disease, diabetes and liver abnormalities, as well as brain and hormone development problems in fetuses and children. Be sure to buy BPA free plastics with recycling codes 1, 2 or 5. Recycling codes 3 and 7 are more likely to include BPA or phthalates. 5. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gasses from certain solids or liquids. These unsafe substances add to indoor air pollution and are linked to asthma and cancer. Paints, pesticides, lacquers, building materials and office equipment can all contain VOCs; however, the biggest culprit of VOC emissions in the home are scented, petroleum-based laundry detergents. Instead, buy plant based, unscented laundry detergents and look for no-voc paints. Avoid plywood and particleboard when possible and keep VOCs contained by waterproofing any plywood furniture with safe sealant products. 6. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) flame retardants, which are linked to hormone disruption, developmental deficiencies and cancer, are used in furniture and electrical equipment. Tests showed that toxic fire retardant chemicals contaminate the 45

46 bodies of ninety-nine percent of pregnant women. When buying new products, always ask the manufacturers what type of fire retardants they use. 7. Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are used in non-stick cookware like Teflon, as well as in stain-resistant fabrics. PFCs are believed to cause birth defects and cancer and have shown to be highly concentrated in the breast milk of nursing mothers. Instead, use stainless steel or iron cast cookware and avoid buying stain resistant furniture. 8. Perchloroethylene (PCE) is a chemical used in dry cleaning that has already been banned in Europe and Canada. PCE causes toxic effects in the liver, kidney and central nervous system. It is much easier now to find green dry cleaners that use chemical free methods. 9. Formaldehyde is used in carpentry, soaps, detergents, cabinetry and glues. Formaldehyde is an extremely toxic carcinogen that was rated as a high level threat for causing cancer by the Environmental Working Group. To reduce your exposure, purchase solid wood furniture or make sure that pressed wood products are sealed. 10. Triclosan is used to make antibacterial soaps, which promote antibiotic resistance in bacteria, thus creating super bacteria. When triclosans are mixed with chlorinated tap water, the toxic gas chloroform is created. Stop using antibacterial soaps and switch to a natural alternative. 11 & 12. Chlorine and ammonia are deadly ingredients commonly used in household cleaners, including toilet bowl and oven cleaner. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that chlorine byproducts are 300,000 times more carcinogenic than the chemical pesticide DDT. Instead, use cleaners such as baking soda, lemon juice, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and castile soap. 80,000 different untested chemicals, not proven to be safe, are sold in the U.S. Many of these chemicals are known to be dangerous, yet they continue to be sold. September 05, 2013 by: John McKiernan - VACCINES In the United States, the number of mandatory vaccine injections has risen to 36 per child. Each of these injections contains neurotoxins such as aluminum, formaldehyde, aborted fetal tissue, animal by-products, heavy metals, and many others. What happens to a child s fragile immune system when it s overloaded with these toxins?

47 The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease. -Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D. - A study performed by Miller and Goldman analyzed the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. They discovered that babies who received multiple vaccines during a single well-baby visit were the most likely to be hospitalized following their injections. The data below is a graphical representation of the number of vaccines given before 6 years of age, under 5 mortality rate, and infant mortality rate of the respective countries. It is a heavily guarded secret within the medical establishment (especially within the corridors of the CDC) that the Cochrane Database Review (CDR), considered by many within the evidence-based medical model to be the gold standard for assessing the effectiveness of common medical interventions, does not lend unequivocal scientific 47

48 support to the belief and/or propaganda that flu vaccines are safe and effective. To the contrary, these authoritative reviews reveal there is a conspicuous absence of conclusive evidence as to the effectiveness of influenza vaccines in children under 2, healthy adults, the elderly, and healthcare workers who care for the elderly. What is even more disconcerting is that only one CDR validated safety study on inactivated flu vaccines has been performed in children under 2 (the population most susceptible to adverse reactions), even though in the USA and Canada current guidelines recommend the vaccination of healthy children from six months old. Another alarming finding following the global pandemic declared by the World Health Organization in 2009, is that receipt of the seasonal flu vaccine among Canadians actually increased the rate of medically attended pandemic H1N1 infection. Vaccines, therefore, may actually decrease resistance to viral infection via their immunosuppressive actions. Sayer Ji, December 29th vaccines?utm_source= Greenmedinfo&utm_medium= &utm_term=0_193c8492fb-3183a8bf When all the evidence is taken together, these studies ( provide powerful evidence that sequential, multiple vaccinations in newborns and small children maximizes the inflammation of the brain and as a consequence dramatically enhances the excitotoxic pathology, and does so for prolonged periods (decades). The more vaccines that are added to the vaccine schedule, the more frequently this devastating effect will be seen and in worse forms. - March 12, Russell L. Blaylock, M.D - The Danger of Excessive Vaccination During Brain Development: The Case for a Link to Autism Spectrum Disorders - Wakefield and his co-workers demonstrated a connection between the MMR vaccines and abnormal gut function in a landmark article appearing in the journal Lancet in 1998 (Wakefield AJ et al. Ileal-lymphoid nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorders in children. Lancet 1998; 351: ). In this carefully conducted study they biopsied the lining of the intestines of autistic children having GI symptoms and demonstrated lymphocytic infiltration as well as elevated levels of inflammatory antibodies and cytokines. TNF- release was particularly high from these gut-based immune cells. The entire GI tract, from the stomach to the colon, was infiltrated by these immune cells. March 12, Russell L.

49 In England, with 98% of the population aged between 2 and 50 vaccinated against smallpox, it experienced its worst ever smallpox outbreak with 45,000 deaths. During the same period in Germany, with a vaccination rate of 96%, there were over 125,000 deaths from smallpox. (The Hadwen Documents) In Germany, compulsory mass vaccination against diphtheria commenced in 1940, and by 1945, diphtheria cases were up from 40,000 to 250,000. (Don't Get Stuck, Hannah Allen) In 1967, Ghana was declared measles-free by the World Health Organization after 96% of its population was vaccinated. In 1972, Ghana experienced one of its worst measles outbreaks with its highest ever mortality rate. (Dr. H. Albonico, MMR Vaccine Campaign in Switzerland, March 1990) In the UK between 1970 and 1990, over 200,000 cases of whooping cough occurred in fully vaccinated children. (Community Disease Surveillance Centre, UK) In the 1970s, a tuberculosis vaccine trial in India involving 260,000 people revealed that more cases of TB occurred in the vaccinated than the unvaccinated. (The Lancet 12/1/80 p73) In 1977, Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, testified along with other scientists that mass inoculation against polio was the cause of most polio cases throughout the USA since (Science 4/4/77 "Abstracts") In 1979, Sweden abandoned the whooping cough vaccine due to its ineffectiveness. Out of 140 cases in 1978, it was found that 84% had been vaccinated three times! (BMJ 283: , 1981) The February 1981 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of obstetricians and 66% of pediatricians refused to take the rubella vaccine. In Oman between 1988 and 1989, a polio outbreak occurred amongst thousands of fully vaccinated children. The region with the highest infection rate had the highest vaccine coverage. The region with the lowest infection rate had the lowest vaccine coverage. (The Lancet, 21/9/91) In the New England Journal of Medicine July 1994 issue, a study found that over 80% of children under 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated. 49

50 In 1990, the Journal of the American Medical Association had an article on measles which stated, "Although more than 95% of school-aged children in the US are vaccinated against measles, large measles outbreaks continue to occur in schools and most cases in this setting occur among previously vaccinated children." (JAMA, 21/11/90) Rich Stossel - October 31, The following graphs, based on the official death numbers as recorded in the Official Year Books of the Commonwealth of Australia, are taken from Greg Beattie's excellent book "Vaccination A Parent's Dilemma" and represent the decline in death rates from infectious disease in Australia. They clearly show that vaccines had nothing to do with the decline in death rates. (Note: Graphical evidence on the decline in death rates from infectious disease for USA, England, New Zealand and many other countries shows the exact same scenario as above). 50

51 FOOD TOXIC AND DEFICIENT A 2004 study, Changes in USDA Food Composition Data for 43 Garden Crops, 1950 to 1999, showed the average nutrient decline in fruits and vegetables was about 15 percent. Protein content in wheat and barley declined 30 to 50 percent since the 1930s. A recent study by researchers at Clemson University, published in the Journal of Animal Science, found that meat from steers finished on pasture contained less saturated fat, 54 percent more B vitamins and beta carotene, and a whopping 117 percent more conjugated linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid and antioxidant linked to improved immune function. There is arsenic in rice, and it's generally higher in brown rice than in white rice. Consumer Reports tested 223 samples of rice products in 2012 and found significant levels of arsenic in most of them, including inorganic arsenic (the really toxic kind). As Consumer Reports found, it's not unusual to see arsenic at levels of 200 ppb or more in rice-based baby cereals. Mke Adams, September 15, Two-thirds of Americans are now overweight, and five percent of American children can now be considered severely obese, which puts their health at grave risk 51

52 Carb-rich processed foods are a primary driver of these statistics; while many blame Americans overindulgence of processed junk foods on lack of self control, scientists are now starting to reveal the truly addictive nature of such foods The obesity rate among Swedish and Japanese women is between five and six percent, compared to almost 40 percent for American women, suggesting there s something in the American diet that is different from other affluent nations At the heart of the problem is the issue of toxic food foods that are heavily processed and purposely designed for maximum craveability Dr. Mercola, September 26, aign= z1 TOXIC CHILDREN Laboratory tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group have detected bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic component and synthetic estrogen, in umbilical cord blood of American infants. Nine of 10 randomly selected samples of cord blood tested positive for BPA, an industrial petrochemical. BPA has been implicated in a lengthening list of serious chronic disorders, including cancer, cognitive and behavioral impairments, endocrine system disruption, reproductive and cardiovascular system abnormalities, diabetes, asthma, and obesity. In all, the tests found as many as 232 chemicals in the 10 newborns, all of minority descent. The cord blood study has produced hard new evidence that American children are being exposed, beginning in the womb, to complex mixtures of dangerous substances that may have lifelong consequences. 232 Toxic Chemicals found in 10 Babies, Dr. Mercola - December Chemicals-found-in-10-Babies.aspx The #1 Children's Vitamin Brand in the US (Top Pharma-Brand - Flintstones Vitamins) contains ingredients that most parents would never intentionally expose their children to.

53 The Main Causes of Disease Deception that medications can heal and promote wellness Ignorance to God s design for health and therefore deceived to rely on the World s system of sick care designed to take your money and your health Fear of getting cancer, fear of not having medical coverage, and fear of not trusting the medical system Deception that are foods are mostly okay, not so toxic, and are not a cause of symptoms, and are the not a major cause of disease Ignorance that nutritional deficiencies are common, a source of symptoms, and are a cause of disease Fear of catching something. Pathogens have always been around and can be defeated, but become a stronghold when there is a compromised immune system due to toxins, nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise, and stress 53

54 Most health issues arise from nutritional deficiencies and toxins, which provides an environment for pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungus, and parasites) to proliferate. Medications for health issues do not address these root causes, but work to alleviate the symptoms. The medication s (drug s) toxic effect on the liver causes other symptoms (side effects). Attempting to heal living organic tissue (your body) with synthetic inorganic substances (drugs) is irrational. In summary, the main causes of most diseases are due to being compromised by toxins and nutritional deficiencies which gives place for pathogens to proliferate. Therefore a path to recovery would be: cleanse and eliminate; nurture and rebuild; tone and balance. CLEANSE AND ELIMINATE Toxins can be pulled from the tissues, but will not effectively be eliminated if the channels of elimination are not open. Creating a dirty blood stream will make people feel worse and that doesn t have to happen. A healing crisis can be avoided with sufficient drainage support with the organs of elimination functioning well enough to dispel the toxins from the body. You can attempt to eliminate the pathogens, but the toxic load could be giving the pathogens enough of a fortified environment to put up a good fight. It is always better to allow the body to get in on the fight, and that sometimes isn t possible until the toxic load has been reduced or the body s systems have been strengthened. It takes energy and properly operating elimination channels to cleanse and eliminate. Some people are too weak to undergo that process and should be nurtured and built up first. NURTURE AND REBUILD Organs and systems must have nutrition to function and stay strong. Organs and systems are made up of cells with specific instructions and specific nutritional requirements according to their function. The adrenals have a greater need of vitamin C and pantothenic acid. The kidney has a greater need of B6, while the thyroid has greater need of iodine and selenium. Cells need chromium to regulate blood sugar. When the cells are healthy the tissues can be healthy. When the tissues are healthy, the organ is healthy. When the organ is healthy, a particular system can be healthy. When all the systems are healthy and functioning in harmony with each other, the whole body is healthy. 54

55 We must have quality nutrition on a cellular level to nurture and rebuild our cells. What else can be done for support? Sleep is a must for restoration as many of our systems get some down time while we are getting restorative sleep. When we are under stress, it hinders our systems, releases damaging hormones, and causes a greater need for nutrition. Sleep and reduction of stress can be pivotal for health restoration. Glandulars can be used to help strengthen glands. Glandulars support tissues of similarity and they can be used to give the organ a rest, while it is being nutritionally supported. Even when herbs are used to support various gland and organs, they still must have nutrition for regeneration. Some herbs have a nutritional base, but nutritious foods and therapeutic supplements is many times needed to bring the gland or organ to a place of holding its strength. Living on glandulars for continual support makes the gland lazy. After it has had a rest it needs to brought back into function or the gland will become somewhat dependent on the glandular to do its job. People are told that once you start thyroid medication you will have to be on it the rest of your life. But the thyroid can be coaxed back into production when the root issue is removed and it is properly supported while the thyroid medication is weaned. Many of the herbs that are very medicinal in their influence on certain glands, organs, and systems are not meant for continual use. Once the gland or organ has been regenerated the medicinal herb needs to be decreased and/or discontinued. Nutrition is foundation. TONE AND BALANCE Every organ has its own electromagnetic frequency. When healthy it is operating at peak efficiency, at its correct vibrational frequency, and in chemical balance. When it is not healthy it, it is not operating at 100% efficiency and may not be in harmony with other organs. When recovering from a diseased state, many organs and systems can be affected. Some may be over producing (stimulated) while others may be under producing (sedated). The body as a whole must be in harmony or in homeostasis to be healthy. All organs and systems must function in relation to the others. In other words, all feedback systems must be communicating and in proper working order for the whole to be healthy. Each organ must be in tune to do its part and it must be in balance with the rest of the 55

56 symphony. The endocrine and neurotransmitter systems are the big players here with their feedback systems and the direct influence upon the body. Example: If the thyroid is down metabolism is down and the bowels can get sluggish. Initial prompting of the bowel to move with purging herbs may give some temporary relief, but continually prompting the bowel to move without addressing the thyroid will only become increasing difficult, weaken the system and make the bowel more dependent upon outside stimulation. The thyroid must be at sufficient enough function to maintain proper influence. Now if the thyroid is down because the adrenals are exhausted (reverse T3 is counteracting T3), excessive thyroid stimulation may raise metabolism, but will only weaken the adrenals further because they have to do their part in maintaining metabolism. Because the individual has exhausted adrenals it is causing excess cortisol levels and begins to affect their ability to get quality sleep. Now neurotransmitters levels are being affected. Just doing something for constipation is short sighted, and that may be the biggest complaint. What is needed here is a prioritizing of systems with the adrenals being the key. You may provide some symptom relief for constipation and sleep, but those issues won t be resolved until the adrenals are strengthened and brought to a level of higher function to maintain performance over a period of time. So the real question becomes, What is the root problem? The answer will most likely be toxins and nutritional deficiencies that have allowed pathogens to infect a weakened system with weakened tissues. GUIDANCE The priority of the body is: 1 st survive 2 nd function 3 rd regenerate and rebuild. May times medications are a valuable need of the body for survival and sometimes required for function. But it is impossible for a medical drug to heal. An analogy is that while the medication may blow away the smoke, the fire is still burning. Herbs have the ability to work with the body to clear the smoke and put out the fire, and without side effects when used appropriately. 56

57 Sometimes health must be restored in stages. It may begin with crisis management, then a recovery phase, ending with a maintenance phase. It may start out with therapeutic levels of support that is reduced over time to maintenance levels. Starting recovery with too much can make the program too difficult to follow and maybe too expensive. Sometimes you will have to prioritize and work to restore health in stages and levels. Everything probably can t be fixed overnight. It has been said that for each year you have struggled with a health challenge, it will take a month of recovery. The time to heal depends on doing the right thing and how proactive you are. 57

59 The Concepts of Health and Disease How we get sick spiritually correlates to how we get sick physically. Thus if you understand how to get well spiritually, by following the same analogy, you would know the principles of how to get well physically. This is very important to recognize. Below are the correlations: Sin - that which defiles if not repented from Evil spirits that which seeks to infest, control, and find habitation Word of God that which feeds and nourishes our spirit Repentance the act of removing of sin and turning away from that which destroys Crucify the flesh a discipline that if not maintained would control behavior and cause spiritual dysfunction Worship an act of connecting to God for refreshing and relieving of burdens Warfare prayer special and fervent prayer to bring a specific desired result Faith and love that which works together to build up and to prevent destruction Toxins - that which defiles if not removed Pathogens - that which seeks to infest, control, and find habitation Nutrition that which feeds and nourishes our physical body Detoxification the act of removing and ceasing of taking in of toxins Daily elimination/exercise a discipline that removes metabolic wastes that would cause dysfunction if not eliminated Stress relief an act of relieving the body from the effects associated from physical and emotional strain Herbs special plant substances taken for a purpose to bring a specific desired result Immune System that which works together to protect and defend from destruction In simple terms, the body that is toxic and nutritionally deficient has a low immune system and is compromised. The weakened environment and tissue then gives way to pathogens to proliferate. 59

60 Revelations to Living Disease Free 1. People perish for lack of knowledge My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge (Hosea 4:6 NKJ) 2. God does want you to be healthy Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. (III John 2 NAS) For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. (Jer. 29:11 NAS) 3. We are a 3 part being (sprit, soul, body) and each part can affect your health. 4. If we violate God s principles for maintaining health there are consequences. Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. (1 Cor. 3:16-17 NAS) 60

61 5. God is the healer and He has a health care system for His people to follow. By obeying God and following His ways, He blesses our land and food, thereby taking away sickness. and said, "If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you. (Exodus 15:26 NKJ) Then it shall come to pass, because you listen to these judgments, and keep and do them, that the Lord your God will keep with you the covenant and the mercy which He swore to your fathers. 13 And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. 14 You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. 15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you. (Deuteronomy 7:12-15 NKJV) As God s children following His way, sickness is not part of our lifestyle, but if we do get sick we are given instructions. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. (James 5:14 NKJ) And in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the LORD, but the physicians. (2 Ch 16:12 NKJ) 6. God heals naturally and supernaturally and we can incorporate both. Then Isaiah said, "Take a lump of figs." So they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered. (2 Kings 20:7 NKJ) 61

62 When the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to Him; and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them. (Luke 4:40 NKJ) 7. For health issues, do not eat unclean foods. For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. This is the law of the animals and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, to distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten. (Leviticus 11:45-47 NKJ) 8. God created the body to have innate healing when His principles are followed....from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Eph 4:16 NKJ) No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me, declares the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17 NAS) 9. God gave us herbs for medicine and we should learn how to use them. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2 NKJ) 10. According to God s design, our bodies are meant to work 6 days and rest every seventh. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work on it; it is the Sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. (Lev. 23:3 NKJ) 62

63 11. Don t eat the fat or blood of animals. This shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor blood. (Leviticus 3:17 NKJ) 12. Some disease states are harder to overcome because there is more than one issue involved (this can create a 3 stranded cord that becomes a physical stronghold). And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart. (Ecc. 4:12 NAS) 13. Sickness and disease can originate from sin. "And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. "So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses." (Matt. 18:34-35 KJV) The way of the LORD is strength for the upright, but destruction will come to the workers of iniquity. (Pr 10:29 KJV) 63

64 14. We are new creatures in Christ under the order of Melchizedek. Jesus paid for our redemption, spirit, soul, and body. We are meant to live in the blood line of Jesus free from sickness and disease. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Cor. 5:17 NKJ) who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--by whose stripes you were healed. (1 Peter 2:24 NKJ) For He testifies: "You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek." (Heb 7:17 NKJ) 64

66 Step 1 - Change Your Diet HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU REALLY NEED TO DRINK? The Institute of Medicine advises that men consume roughly 3.0 liters (about 13 cups) of water a day and women consume 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of water a day. Another rule of thumb is to drink ½ your weight in ounces. If you weigh 150 lbs, you would drink 75 ounces. About 40 percent of bottled water is regular tap water. The ph of the bottled water you buy may be making you acidic.

The health benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables outweigh the risks of pesticide exposure, but eating conventionally-grown produce is far better than not eating fruits and vegetables at all. The Environmental Working Group analyzes Department of Agriculture 67

68 data about pesticide residue and ranks foods based on how much or little pesticide residue they have. The group has estimated that individuals can reduce their exposure by 80% if they switch to organic when buying 12 specific foods. In order of having the most pesticides they are: 1. Apples, 2. Strawberries, 3. Grapes, 4. Celery, 5. Peaches, 6. Spinach, 7. Sweet bell peppers, 8. Nectarines-imported, 9. Cucumbers, 10. Potatoes, 11. Cherry tomatoes, 12. Hot peppers Genetically modified plants, or GMOs, are not often found in the produce section of grocery stores. Field corn, nearly all of which is produced with genetically modified seeds, is used to make tortillas, chips, corn syrup, animal feed and bio-fuels. Because it is not sold as a fresh vegetable, it is not included in EWG's Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce. Nor is soy, another heavily GMO crop that makes its way into processed food. The genetically modified crops likely to be found in produce aisles of American supermarkets are zucchini, Hawaiian papaya and some varieties of sweet corn. Most Hawaiian papaya is a GMO. Only a small fraction of zucchini and sweet corn are GMO. Since U.S. law does not require labeling of GMO produce, EWG advises people who want to avoid it to purchase the organically-grown versions of these items. The top fifteen pesticide free foods (produce) in order from most contaminated to least were: 1. Mushrooms, 2. Sweet potatoes, 3. Cantaloupe, 4. Grapefruit, 5. Kiwi, 6. Eggplant, 7. Asparagus, 8. Mangos, 9. Papayas, 10. Sweet peas frozen, 11. Cabbage, 12. Avocados, 13. Pineapples, 14. Onions, 15. Sweet Corn. EWG's 2013 Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce So, first and foremost, you have to realize that a healthy diet equates to fresh whole, preferably organic foods, and foods that have been minimally processed. This means; 1. It's grown without pesticides and chemical fertilizers (organic foods fit this description, but so do some non-organic foods) 2. It's not genetically engineered (GMOs) 3. It contains no added growth hormones, antibiotics, or other drugs 4. It does not contain any artificial ingredients, including chemical preservatives 5. It is fresh (keep in mind that if you have to choose between wilted organic produce or fresh conventional produce, the latter may be the better option) 6. It did not come from a concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) 68

69 7. It is grown with the laws of nature in mind (meaning animals are fed their native diets, not a mix of grains and animal byproducts, and have free-range access to the outdoors) 8. It is grown in a sustainable way (using minimal amounts of water, protecting the soil from burnout, and turning animal wastes into natural fertilizers instead of environmental pollutants) Almost all fish should be avoided, as almost all fish are contaminated with mercury, PCBs and DDT. The only exceptions to this rule are fish like sardines and anchovies, as they are small enough to have minimal contamination. Other fish that are less likely to be contaminated with high levels of mercury are: Summer Flounder Wild Pacific Salmon Croaker ELIMINATE Sardines Haddock Tilapia 1. GMO foods 2. Aspartame, Splenda/Sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, fruit juice 3. Artificial colorings and flavorings 4. Hydrogenated oils / trans-fatty acids and cooking with vegetable oils 5. MSG 6. Commercialized pasteurized milk 7. Fat-free foods 8. Diet drinks 9. Scavenger meats - pork, oysters, shrimp, crabs, lobster, and catfish 10. Farm raised fish 11. Soy products 12. Commercial salt [use sea salt (Celtic salt) or Himalayan salt] AVOID OR REDUCE 1. Canned vegetables 1. Preservatives 2. Iceberg lettuce 3. Roasted nuts and seeds 69

70 4. Excessive grain intake, especially wheat 5. Processed, packaged foods 6. Peanuts (frequently contaminated with a carcinogenic mold called aflatoxin, and are one of the most pesticide-contaminated crops) 7. Cheese and ice cream from pasteurized milk Refined carbohydrates like breakfast cereals, bagels, waffles, pretzels, refined breads, and many other processed grain products break down to sugar, which increases insulin levels causing insulin resistance; which is the number one underlying factor of nearly every chronic disease and condition, including weight gain. Gluten is the primary protein found in wheat and there is a hidden intolerance of wheat products to most people. Rice, corn, buckwheat and millet have glutens, but the glutens in these foods do not contain the gliadin molecule that can provoke the inflammatory reaction. Other safe grains include quinoa and amaranth. The American diet is sorely lacking in good fats, which will reduce cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer s, Parkinson s, diabetes, obesity, depression, and inflammation. Healthy fats are: Olive oil Coconut oil Avocados Flax seed oil Purified cod liver oil and fish oil (not already rancid from heat processing) Organic raw nuts Organic pastured egg yolks Pastured meats Butter made from raw grass-fed organic milk Fish (free of mercury and not farm raised) BENEFICIAL FOODS TO EAT 1. Fresh vegetables (such as Kale, Swiss chard, collards, spinach, dandelion greens, green and red cabbage, broccoli, red and green leaf lettuce, romaine 70

71 lettuce, endive, Chinese cabbage, bok choy, fennel, celery, cucumbers, cauliflower, zucchini, brussel sprouts 2. Fruits as a snack in-between meals (separate from meals for digestion purposes) or for dinner to rest the digestion throughout the night. 3. Freshly processed vegetable juice (juicing) 4. Spelt is a more nutritious grain than wheat and not allergenic 5. Green tea and herbal teas 6. Raw milk (not pasteurized or homogenized) in limited quantities (goat milk is much better than cow) 7. Beef in moderation as it is harder to digest (grass fed if you can afford it) 8. Poultry (free range if you can afford it) chicken, turkey, ostrich 9. Game meats such as venison, buffalo, lamb 10. Acceptable fish and sea vegetables from clean waters 11. Eggs (organic or from free range chickens if you can find it) 12. Seeds (raw) sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, flax, etc. 13. Nuts (raw) cashews, Brazil nuts, almonds, pecans, etc. 14. Freshly made beans and lentils in moderation (beans become mostly carbohydrates when cooked) 15. Butter and/or ghee (organic and from grass-fed cows if you can afford it) 16. Whole grains in moderation (such as millet, oatmeal, brown rice) 17. Sprouted grain breads 18. Raw nut butters, raw honey, blackstrap molasses, maple syrup, and sucanat in moderation 19. Fermented foods like tamari, tempeh, natto, sauerkraut, kim chee, kombucha tea, raw vinegar, fermented vegetables, full-fat plain yogurt 20. Home-made salad dressings (raw egg yolks, cream, raw vinegar, and olive, flax, or walnut oils) 21. Coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, high-oleic safflower and sunflower oils, and expeller-pressed nut oils, cold pressed sesame oil, palm kernel oil, grape seed oil 22. Cod liver oil, Brewer s yeast, spirulina, bee pollen, raw wheat germ, and kelp 23. Cheese (unpasteurized is better) 24. Herb and spice seasonings 25. Eat desserts in moderation prepared using natural ingredients such as butter and raw honey, and on special occasions only 71

72 26. Stevia is a great sweetener substitute as it is an herb without carbohydrates that is very sweet WHICH OF THE OILS SHOULD I COOK WITH? Recommended choices for cooking are: coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and butter. Oils least damaged by heat and oxygen in the following order are: Butter Tropical fats (coconut, palm kernel) Cold pressed or expeller pressed sunflower oil (not regular sunflower) Cold pressed or expeller pressed safflower oil (not regular safflower) Peanut oil Sesame oil Canola oil (It is a genetically modified food and it is not recommend.) Olive oil HOW BEST TO PREPARE AND CONSUME FOODS 1. Use cast iron, stainless steel, glass, or ceramic. Do not cook with aluminum, copper, or Teflon-coated (non-stick) cookware. 2. It is better to steam or sauté your vegetables than boiling them. 3. Vegetable and fruit wash: 1 cup water, 1 cup vinegar, 1 tsp. baking soda, 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract. Mix water and vinegar in spray bottle. Add in grapefruit seed extract. Slowly add in baking soda as mixture will fizz. 4. Eat some raw foods every day. 5. Do not skip meals. 6. Drink plenty of water in-between meals rather than with meals so it will not dilute the digestive juices. 7. For digestive purposes it is better to eat vegetables with proteins, vegetables with carbohydrates, but not starches with proteins (eat fruit in-between meals as a snack and not with protein). 8. Have a big glass of water when you first get up in the morning to help the body flush out the toxins it has been preparing throughout the night. 72

They are the colon, liver, kidney, and lungs. Toxins are also eliminated through the skin, but if all the other channels are working properly, the skin would serve mostly as a protective system and cooling system, rather than a detox organ. If you have skin issues, more than likely you have issues with elimination of toxins. The lymphatic system collects metabolic byproducts and wastes from the tissues and carries it to the organs used for elimination. Primarily, toxins are processed through the liver, and then moved to the gallbladder, which dumps them to the colon to be flushed out the bowel. When a person is not having regular bowel movements with good evacuation, toxins can be recycled back into the body. 73

74 Colon The bowel is the primary organ of elimination. The liver dumps toxins to the colon and the lymphatic system dumps toxins to the colon. At least 50% of the body s immune system is in the bowel. The bowel is usually the first place where disease processes begin. The colon is sometimes called the second brain because it has its own neurotransmitter system and it can have a significant influence on the brain. If people are not having at least one good bowel movement per day, they are constipated. Constipation is infrequent passage of stool and incomplete evacuations. Major causes of constipation are from: Magnesium deficiency is number one Poor fluid intake Low fiber diet Lack of exercise Endocrine problems (thyroid, adrenals) Food allergies (dairy is common) Abnormal colon motility (pathogens and imbalance of flora called dysbiosis) Emotional issues Neurological disorders Medications Herbs can also stimulate peristalsis and support the colon. Senna, mandrake, and cascara sagrada work as irritants, which the colon attempts to expel. Senna works as a laxative, while cascara sagrada can assist in restoring proper peristalsis. Turkey rhubarb root, peppermint, aloe, and wheatgrass act more as tonics to support the colon. A tea from flaxseed works like a laxative as well as raw juice from celery, apples, carrots, rhubarb, spinach, prunes, figs, and raisins. The effect of a laxative may move the bowel, but it doesn t clean the colon. Colonics and enemas are the most direct way to do that. Fiber products such as ground flaxseeds or psyllium seeds or the use of psyllium husks bulk up the stool and work to sweep or scrape the colon. Extra water must be taken to keep the stool from excessive hardening and decreasing motility. Charcoal and bentonite clay are good for collecting toxins deposited in the colon. 74

The liver is intimately involved in cleansing our blood of the pesticides, pollutants, steroids, pharmaceuticals, and all other toxins. The liver chemically changes poisons so they can be safely removed from the body. With the prevalence of processed foods, medications, and environmental pollutions, our liver is working harder than ever to detoxify our body.

Every 24 hours about 45 gallons circulate through the kidneys. The kidneys have nephrons, which are the functional units of the kidney that contain tiny filters that are used for detoxification. Tubes in the nephrons either reabsorb water and salt to go back into the body or discharge them to be eliminated in the urine. When the liver is overly taxed and the bowel toxins are being re-circulated back into the body, the kidneys have to work harder. The kidneys are also involved in electrolytes and tissue hydration. 75

76 Many herbs are specific to the kidneys for offering support to strengthen, cleanse, or increase the flow of urine (diuretics), and even for dissolving kidney stones.

The skin eliminates some of the same toxins expelled by the kidneys. The skin contains many cytochrome P-450 detoxification enzymes (needed and used by the liver). If the kidneys and liver are not eliminating toxins efficiently, the body tries to move them out through the skin. That is why many practitioners call the skin the second kidney. When the bowel, lungs, kidneys, lymph system, and liver are sluggish, many toxins are then forced to be eliminated through the skin. When someone is having skin issues, one of the first places to look is upstream, which is the kidney, liver, and the colon. Lungs The lobules of the lungs contain bronchioles, alveoli, blood, and lymphatic vessels. The alveolar membranes allow carbon dioxide and other gases to be eliminated from the blood into the lungs. The lungs also contain cytochrome P-450 detoxification enzymes, which allow them to convert some chemicals to water-soluble compounds that can be excreted in the urine. The lungs primarily eliminate carbon dioxide, a by-product of carbonic acid in the body. The lungs therefore help maintain the acid-alkaline balance in the body. The lungs can be supported by such herbs and teas made from fenugreek, comfrey, lobelia, pleurisy root, elecampane, horehound, and yerba santa. Lymphatic system The lymph system is composed of the spleen, thymus, tonsils, lymph nodes, and the lymph vessels. The lymph vessels are filled with lymph fluid and run parallel to the veins. The lymph is also in the space between cells and it carries off the cellular waste to the lymphatic vessels. Lymph fluid travels back to nodes, which are also called lymph glands. There are more than 600 lymph nodes in the body, with the majority 76

77 found in neck, groin, armpits, and the abdomen. The immune system scavenger cells called macrophages are found in the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes also contain B- lymphocytes, which are a type of white blood cell that produce anti-bodies that protect the body from micro-organisms. The lymph system does not have a pump. Therefore, exercise or muscular movement is what the body uses to move lymph fluid. When lymph is not moving out of the body as it should, the cells become congested with their own wastes.

A severe detox reaction is called a Healing Crisis. If you feel sick or have a worsening of symptoms or even new symptoms from detoxifying, you will think that what you are doing is harmful and is making things worse. You can either continue to press through the detox reaction or use water, fruit, vegetable juices, vitamin C, and herbs for relief by assisting the channels of elimination. DETOXIFICATION OF TOXIC METALS Alpha Lipoic acid is a rather weak chelator, but it will cross the blood brain barrier and can be effective for removing lead and mercury. Chlorella is a good chelator particularly for lead, mercury, aluminum, and cadmium. Chlorella pulls toxic metals through the mucosal surface of the intestines from the blood and protects the kidneys. 77

78 Cilantro is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead, and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It has the ability to mobilize more than it can carry out, so use it with caution. DMSA, good for lead and mercury, needs to be given every 4 hours around the clock to prevent redistribution of mercury and lead back into the central nervous system. EDTA given orally has about a 5 to 10% absorption rate. Particularly good for lead and somewhat for mercury, aluminum, and cadmium. It can also help remove calcium deposits in the arteries. EDTA will increase nitric oxide in the arteries causing vasodilation. More absorption can be achieved with suppositories. Malic acid has been shown to cross the blood brain barrier and has a strong affinity for aluminum, as does chlorella and cilantro. Zeolite is a naturally occurring crystal formed from volcanic ash that has a negatively charged honeycomb structure that naturally attracts harmful substances metals and toxins. The heavy metals with the highest affinity for the zeolite in order are: mercury, lead, aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium. Another aspect of zeolites is that it doesn t bind to calcium, magnesium, iron, lithium, and silver.

Drink Clean - Drink plenty of clean water, at least eight to ten glasses a day. 2. Eliminate Properly - Keep your bowels moving, at least once or twice a day. 3. Eat Clean - Eat organic produce and animal products to eliminate the toxins, hormones, and antibiotics in your food. 4. Eat Detoxifying Foods - You should eat 8 to 10 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day, particularly cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, collards, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi. Also eat garlic and onions, which help increase sulfur in the body which is needed for detoxification. 5. Minimize Drugs - Avoid stimulants, sedatives, drugs, caffeine, nicotine, and reduce or eliminate alcohol intake. 6. Get Moving - Exercise regularly with focus on conditioning your cardiovascular system, strengthening exercises, and stretching exercises. 7. Avoid the White Menace - This includes white flour and white sugar. 8. Sweat -- Sweat profusely at least three times a week, using a sauna, steam, or exercise. 9. Supplement - Take a high-quality food-based multivitamin and mineral supplement and/or supplement with juicing and green drinks. 10. Relax - Relax your nervous system every day to a state of calmness. FASTING THE OLD REMEDY Consider fasting as an aid to cleanse the body. Fasting refers to complete abstinence from food for a short or long period for a specific purpose. Fasting is nature s oldest, most effective and least expensive method of treating disease. A common cause of all diseases is the accumulation of waste and poisonous matter in the body. 79

80 Fasting promotes self healing by the casting off of poisons. Periodic fasting not only helps break food addictions, but can also extend life spans through calorie restriction and increased reserves of metabolic enzymes. There are several types of fasts: water-only fasts, fruit -only fasts, raw vegetables/fruits only fast, vegetable juice-only fasts, 1 day fasts, 3 day fasts, or much longer fasts. Most people are too toxic to fast more than one day without the detox reaction being more than they want to endure. Most people should consider only periodic one-day fasts or juice-only fasts before they try to fast for longer periods. Apples may be juiced along with vegetables, but fruit juice alone raises blood sugar and spikes insulin. A short fast of two to three days can be gradually increased with each succeeding fast by a day or so. The fasting period, however, should not exceed a week. This will enable the chronically sick body to gradually and slowly eliminate toxic waste matter without seriously affecting the natural functioning of the body. The first day s hunger pangs are perhaps the most difficult to bear. The craving for food will, however, gradually decrease as the fast progresses. A simple rule for using fasting as a means for healing is to stop eating until the appetite returns or until one feels completely well. Only very simple exercises like short walks should be undertaken during the fast. The best, safest, and most effective method of fasting is juice fasting. Although the old classic form of fasting was a water only fast, most of the leading authorities on fasting today agree that juice fasting is far superior to a water fast. During fasting the body burns up and excretes large amounts of accumulated wastes. This process is best supported by drinking vegetable juices rather than water alone. A precautionary measure which should be observed in fasting is the emptying of the bowels at the beginning of the fast by an enema to relieve the body of decomposing matter. Enemas can be administered at least every other day during the fasting period. There are several benefits of fasting. During a long fast, the body feeds upon its reserves. Being deprived of needed nutrients, particularly of protein and fats, it will burn and digest its own tissues. But it will not do so indiscriminately. The body will first decompose and burn those cells and tissues which are diseased, damaged, aged, or dead. The essential tissues and vital organs, the glands, the nervous system and the 80

81 brain are not damaged or digested in fasting. Here lies the secret of the effectiveness of fasting as a curative method. During fasting, the building of new and healthy cells is speeded up by the amino acids released from the diseased cells. The capacity of the eliminative organs, that is, lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin is greatly increased as they are relieved of the usual burden of digesting food and eliminating the resultant wastes. The remaining success of the fast depends largely on how it is broken. The main rules for breaking a fast are not to eat high stress or heavy foods and to not overeat. Breaking a fast is best done in the morning, which is probably why it is called break-fast. Those that should not fast are pregnant women, nursing moms, those underweight, and diabetics. Those that should not fast without approval or monitoring of a health professional are the critically ill, those with tuberculosis, advanced heart disease, or kidney dysfunction. FAR INFRARED TECHNOLOGY - HEALING RAYS OF THE SUN Far-infrared rays are part of the sunlight spectrum which is invisible to the naked eye. Far infrared heat is completely healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, it is so safe it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants. FIR causes resonance with water molecules. The human body contains about 70% water by weight and thus FIR activates the water molecules in our body. Blood flow and oxygen levels are improved. Tissues are warmed and activated by the resonance thus eliminating fats, chemicals, and toxins from our blood and fat cells. In an infrared sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water. In a conventional sauna, the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water. Studies have shown a 30 minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to calories. Blood flow during whole body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. (Journal of the American Medical Association, August 1981) In comparison, a person running 2.6 miles in 30 minutes would burn about 378 calories. Infrared saunas have provided relief to those suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and certain skin conditions by penetrating into joints, muscles and tissues to increase circulation and oxygen flow. A clinical study in Japan reported a 81

82 successful solution for seven out of seven cases of rheumatoid arthritis treated with whole-body far infrared therapy. Far infrared sauna technology is the only proven, most efficacious way of getting rid of stored environmental chemicals. (Sherry Rogers, MD, Detoxify or Die, 2002, pg. 222) 100% of human fat biopsies in EPA studies contained: Styrene (styrofoam, styrene, plastic wrap) Dioxins (bleached paper products, herbicides potent cause of cancer) Xylene (gasoline, paints, glues) 1,4 dichlorobenzene (deodorizers, sanitizers) PCBs (potent cause of cancer) (Sherry Rogers, MD, Detoxify or Die, 2002, pg. 138) MAGNETIC PULSER The research studies on pulsed magnetic fields (many conducted in Russia) indicate they are effective to improve circulation, accelerate tissue regeneration, regulate the nervous system, reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Studies in the U.S. indicate pulsed magnetic fields speed the healing of fractures and have proved effective in fractures that would not otherwise heal. The magnetic pulsar from helps the body's immune system to fight localized difficult infections such as infections inside teeth, infections of spirochetes and nanobacteria inside calcifications, and it penetrates into calcified tumors. The generated pulses of a standard device covers a volume that is about 3 inches in diameter and 9 inches in depth. IONIC FOOT BATH One solution to alkalize and detox your system is an ionic footbath. How does the ionic footbath work? An ion-producing module is placed in a tub of clean water with added salt. You immerse your feet into the water. The device works by sending a small current through the body that generates positively charged ions. The high concentration positive ions attaches to the negatively charged toxins thus neutralizing them. The body is then able to discard them through the approximate 2000 pores that are on the bottom of your 82

83 feet. In addition, elimination of toxins is also increased through the body s normal routes. It alkalizes the blood and tissue thereby correcting the ph balance. It appears that the ionic cleanse detoxifies the body very effectively and can be faster than herbal or fasting protocols, with little or no stress to the individual. Used properly, it provides a comfortable and relaxing way to rid the body of toxins without precipitating a healing crisis. The entire process takes about 30 minutes. Reported benefits are: Enhances the immune system Assists in recovery time from injuries and surgery Can relieve pain and joint stiffness due to arthritis Improves sleep pattern Removes heavy metals Removes blood clot material Improves liver and kidney function 83

84 Step 3 - Increase Your Nutrition Levels NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES We get plenty of calories in our food, but little nutrition. Air, soil, and water pollution in addition to erosion, and modern farming techniques, have depleted our soils of vital minerals. Reasons that people are nutritionally deficient are: Not consuming nutrient based foods (eating junk food) Consuming nutrient based foods that are void of nutrition Not absorbing and assimilating the nutrients due to digestive issues Medications causing nutritional deficiencies Stress and toxins cause nutritional deficiencies Diseases creating higher need for certain nutrients SOME SYMPTOMS OF COMMON NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES Night blindness, poor light adaption -- Vitamin A Keratosis Pilaris (chicken skin) -- Essential Fatty Acids Dry eyes Essential Fatty Acids Red, bleeding gums -- Vitamin C Easy bruising, little red dots on skin -- Vitamin C Decreased smell, taste -- Zinc Deep fissures in tongue -- B Vitamins Rapid blinking eyes, muscle twitching -- Magnesium Seasonal affective disorder -- Vitamin D Cracks in corner of mouth Vitamin B2 Constipation - Magnesium RAW JUICE THERAPY Raw juicing is perhaps the most effective way to restore health and rejuvenate the body. The eliminative and cleansing capacity of the lungs, liver, kidneys, and the skin is greatly increased. The favorable effect of raw juices in the treatment of disease is attributed to 84

85 the fact that raw juices alkalize the body and contain enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and natural sugars. Juicing is a wonderful way to extract live whole food nutrients from vegetables in a way that is very absorbable to the body and without having to expend digestive energy. Juicing will help pre-digest" the vegetables so you receive most of the nutrition. What about fruits? Juiced fruits are high in sugar content and thus could spike insulin levels. Too many carrots or beets if not mixed with other vegetables can have the same effect. Juicing allows you to consume more live whole food nutrients from vegetables than would ordinarily be consumed. Some ask, Why not just eat all those vegetables raw? Most people won t because it would be more mass than they would want to consume, it takes longer than they have time for, and the nutrients wouldn t be absorbed into the body as well if it has to go through the digestion process. Then you may ask, What about the fiber? The fiber can be added back into the juice to assist the bowels if you are not getting enough fiber from other sources. Vegetables juices to start with that are easy to digest are: Celery Carrot Fennel Apple (not a vegetable, but improves Cucumbers taste not so sweet) Once you are used to juicing, then other vegetables can be added: Red leaf lettuce Chinese Cabbage Green leaf lettuce Bok Choy Romaine lettuce Garlic Endive Tomato Escarole Beet Spinach Alfalfa Cabbage (good for healing ulcers) SUPPLEMENTS SYNTHETIC VS WHOLE FOOD Synthetic vitamins are more affordable than whole food vitamins. There are vast differences between health-food quality synthetic vitamins and commercialized synthetic vitamins with toxic additives. 85

86 Commercialized heat treated synthetic vitamins contain dyes, petroleum solvents, and other chemicals that make the product damaging to your health. Isolated synthetic vitamins can rob the body of other nutrients, thus creating other deficiencies. Therefore a multi-vitamin/mineral is usually more prudent to cover the bases than taking just one or two vitamins. Quality synthetic vitamins do not heal, but they do offset symptoms of vitamin deficiencies and function as vitamin-likes. Whole food vitamins are very absorbable and contain all the factors to make it a true vitamin and not just fractionated parts. Whole food vitamins contain the discovered and yet undiscovered nutrients in food needed and useful to the body. Synthetic vitamins do not absorb as well, thus high potencies are required to increase their effects. For those that are severely nutrient deficient quality synthetic vitamins do provide support for the body s deficiencies and does provide a significant vitamin-like effect to offset symptoms. Synthetic vitamins greatly assist in supporting body functions. As a person s health improves and reaches a higher state of health, the body prefers whole foods to heal and regenerate rather than synthetic fractions. Taking vitamins with meals helps to supply other nutrients needed for assimilation. Taking synthetic vitamins on an empty stomach may cause nausea because it is not per say food. Taking whole food vitamins on an empty stomach will not upset the stomach because the vitamins are food. The more toxic a person is the more nutrition needed to support the body. A whole food vitamin pill will not have the potency of a synthetic vitamin. SUNSHINE (VITAMIN D3) Vitamin D is one of the greatest deficiencies in America. It is not really a vitamin but a hormone. It is essential for immune health. Vitamin D3 is made in the skin when 7- dehydrocholesterol (cholesterol) reacts with UVB ultraviolet light. How much vitamin D3 do we need? On the average we need about 20 to 30 minutes of sunshine in the middle of the day. Fish, liver, egg yolk, and cod liver oil are the best sources of vitamin D foods. If you do not eat vitamin D rich foods often or get adequate sunshine, you should consider taking a 86

87 vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol is the correct type of vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D Dose Recommendations Below 5 Age 5-10 Adults Pregnant Women Age Dosage 35 units per pound per day 2500 units 5000 units 5000 units WARNING: There is no way to know if the above recommendations are correct. The ONLY way to know is to test your blood. You might need 4-5 times the amount recommended above. Ideally your blood level of 25 OH D should be 60ng/ml. One-third of Americans have serum 25(OH)D concentrations below 20 ng/ml. The consensus from a wide variety of studies for the optimal concentration is at least 30 ng/ml and more likely over 40 ng/ml based on observational studies. Orthomolecular News Service, June 10th In fact, children taking just 1,200 IUs of vitamin D3 per day, which is considered a low dose, were shown to be 42 percent less likely to come down with the flu. I firmly believe that optimizing your vitamin D levels is the single most important and least expensive action you can take to help strengthen immune function and protect against getting sick during the flu season, and would STRONGLY urge you to have your vitamin D level monitored to confirm your levels are therapeutic at ng/ml year-round. Dr. Mercola October 22, mpaign= z1 Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more. IODINE Iodized salt is the chief source of iodine in the industrialized world. 87

88 Yet rates of iodine deficiency have reached epidemic levels, increasing fourfold over the past 40 years. A startling 74% of normal, healthy adults may no longer be consuming sufficient quantities. Recent scientific analysis reveals that many commercial table salt brands now contain inadequate amounts of iodine. Iodine is critical to healthy thyroid function. Inadequate iodine intake causes weight gain, low energy, depression, cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline, and a variety of cancers. Iodine is vital to breast health in older women, with low intake correlated to increased risks for breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease. Life Extension Magazine October Iodine-Deficiency_01.htm MAGNESIUM Those having the lowest levels of magnesium had the highest risk of dying from a heart attack or a deadly arrhythmia while in the hospital. Government studies prove the average diet provides less than a third of the magnesium you need in a day and its deficiency is a major cause of sudden death with no other obvious medical problems. A respected medical study reported that 77% of diabetics were deficient in magnesium. Ronald Grisanti - Magnesium is absolutely essential to optimal health as we age. Compelling studies reveal that this mineral plays numerous pivotal roles in sustaining bone health, a healthy heart, and a properly- functioning nervous system. Magnesium can help offset ailments ranging from migraines to asthma to cancer. Life Extension Magazine May Consequences_01.htm?source=search&key=magnesium%20deficiency Harvard researchers found that taking 180 mg of magnesium along with 10 mg of vitamin B6 daily reduced kidney stone formation by 92.3 percent per year! Another study showed about a 90 percent reduction with magnesium alone (500 mg daily). Dr. Julian Whitaker Last Reviewed 09/27/ B VITAMINS Is it possible to prevent atrophy of key brain regions related to cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease (AD)? Researchers from the University of Oxford have determined that B vitamin supplementation can slow and possibly reverse the progression of Alzheimer's symptoms along with cognitive impairment. Our results show that B-vitamin 88

89 supplementation can slow the atrophy of specific brain regions that are a key component of the Alzheimer disease process and that are associated with cognitive decline." Jun 03, SULFUR Sulfur deficiency is common, and may be a contributing factor in obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's and other chronic health conditions. Sulfur, cholesterol, and vitamin D produced in your skin as a result of sun exposure, are all intricately connected and necessary for optimal health, particularly heart health. When exposed to sunshine, your skin produces two types of sulfur: cholesterol sulfate, and vitamin D3 sulfate. It is believed that vitamin D3 from oral supplements, which is unsulfated, cannot be converted to D3 sulfate, and may therefore not have the identical health benefits as the vitamin D your skin synthesizes. Dr.Mecola, September 17, VITAMIN B12 Recent studies from the U.S. Framingham trial show one in four adults in the United States are deficient in this vitally important nutrient, and nearly half the population has suboptimal blood levels. Vitamin B12 is fittingly known as the energy vitamin, and your body requires it for a number of vital functions. Among them: energy production, blood formation, DNA synthesis, and myelin formation. Myelin is insulation that protects your nerve endings and allows them to communicate with one another. Dr. Mercola May 19, ZINC DEFICIENCY Zinc deficiency is common in the developing world, and it s thought that about 12 percent of the U.S. population, and up to 40 percent of the elderly, are also at risk for zinc deficiency. Common signs that you may need more zinc: Lack of appetite Depression Impaired sense of taste or smell Frequent colds and infections Growth failure in children 89

90 Dr. Mercola October 08, Global-Concern.aspx Research suggests zinc deficiency can contribute to Alzheimer s by promoting accumulation of clumps of defective proteins in your brain, which is one of the hallmarks of the disease The rise in Alzheimer s prevalence may be related to genetically engineered foods, as herbicides like Roundup are mineral chelators, which means they bind specific nutrients, especially zinc Dr. Mercola - October 17, aign= z1 DRUG-INDUCED DEFICIENCIES Millions of Americans suffer from an almost completely ignored epidemic of drug-induced nutrient depletion that can cause grave health problems. Perhaps 30% of pharmaceutical side effects are the direct result of these drug-induced nutrient deficiencies.

93 Step 4 - Rest and Sleep SEVENTH DAY RHYTHM (CIRCASEPTAN) Why should we honor a seventh day rest period? In six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11) Isaiah 58:13, 14 - If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land. SLEEP A good night s sleep consists of 4 to 5 sleep cycles. Each cycle includes periods of deep sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, when we dream. As the night goes on, the portion of that cycle that is in REM sleep increases. This pattern of cycling and progression is critical to the biology of sleep. Although personal needs vary, on average, adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Babies typically sleep about 16 hours a day. Young children need at least 10 hours of sleep, while teenagers need at least 9 hours. Humans are biologically programmed to nap during the daytime. For some people, not allowing your body to take a nap can lead to inability to easily fall asleep at night. Research indicates that sleeping less than six hours may increase insulin resistance and diabetes. It may also double risk of angina, coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke. The American Cancer Society did a study of a million American adults, and short sleepers showed a dramatic increase in risk of cancers across the board. When you are sleep deprived, your body decreases production of leptin, the hormone that tells your brain there is no need for more food. At the same time it increases levels of ghrelin, a hormone that triggers hunger. Sleeping fewer than five hours a day more than doubles your risk of being diagnosed with angina, coronary heart disease, heart attack or stroke. And sleeping more than seven hours also increases your risk of cardiovascular disease; more than nine hours of sleep results in a 50 percent increase in risk

94 BRAIN S WASTE REMOVAL SYSTEM Recent research shows that your brain has a unique waste management system, similar to the lymphatic system in your body. This system, dubbed the glymphatic system, is activated during sleep. By pumping cerebral spinal fluid through your brain s tissues, the glymphatic system flushes the waste from your brain back into your body s circulatory system and into your liver, where it s ultimately eliminated. During sleep, your brain cells also shrink by about 60 percent, which allows for more efficient waste removal. Amyloid-beta, for example proteins that form the notorious plaque found in the brains of Alzheimer s patients is removed in significantly greater quantities during sleep. Dr. Mercola - October 31, mpaign= z1 94

95 Step 5 - Exercise WHY EXERCISE? Exercising is a part of the natural process of detoxification. Our bodies depend on exercise to move toxins out with lymph fluid. The lymphatic system doesn t have a pump, like the heart for circulation; therefore exercise is what moves lymph. Exercise helps with detoxification by moving lymph through the body. The lymph system doesn t have a pump, so exercise is the body s method to move lymph through the system. Exercise burns calories. Exercise builds bones. Exercise prevents muscle loss. Regular exercise helps the body s response to insulin. Regular exercise can lower blood glucose. Regular exercise can lower blood pressure. Exercise improves the circulation of the blood throughout the body. Exercise reduces stress. Exercise supports the balancing of brain chemistry. There are precautions before embarking on an exercise routine. 95

96 Discuss the exercise program with your doctor. Drink plenty of water. Don t do too much too soon. Work your way into it. If you have or had joint problems, choose a program that is less impacting on the joints. Spend the money for a quality pair of shoes if your exercise involves walking, running, or aerobics. If you take insulin or glucose-lowering medication, monitor your blood sugar before and after exercising. Consume sufficient easy digestible protein so that as your body is building muscle, it isn t robbing it from other places (heart). It is best to not have strenuous exercise right after eating because blood and energy are needed for digestion purposes. Don t exercise too close to bedtime or you may find that it keeps you up at night. Provide sufficient recovery time between times of exercise, particularly with strength training. Attempting a strenuous exercise program while having weak adrenals (excess cortisol levels) will back fire on you causing a decrease of metabolism. Getting sufficient sleep is needed for recuperation and weight loss. HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING Basically, by exercising in short bursts, followed by periods of recovery, you recreate exactly what your body needs for optimum health. Twice-weekly sessions, which require no more than 20 minutes from start to finish, can help you: Lower your body fat Improve your muscle tone Boost your energy and libido Improve athletic speed and performance This type of exercise will also naturally increase your body's production of human growth hormone (HGH) a synergistic, foundational biochemical underpinning that promotes muscle and effectively burns excessive fat. It also plays an important part in promoting overall health and longevity. Conventional cardio will NOT boost your HGH level. While the entire workout is only 20 minutes, 75 percent of that time is warming up, recovering or cooling down. You're really only working out intensely for four minutes: 96

97 Warm up for three minutes Exercise as hard and fast as you can for 30 seconds. You should feel like you couldn't possibly go on another few seconds Recover at a slow to moderate pace for 90 seconds Repeat the high intensity exercise and recovery 7 more times You just need a 20-minute session performed twice to three times a week Dr. Mercola October 18, Z1 EFFECTS OF EXERCISE After reviewing 305 randomized controlled trials, researchers found no statistically detectable differences between physical activity and medications for prediabetes and heart disease, including statins and beta blockers Exercise was also found to be more effective than drugs after you ve had a stroke. The only time drugs beat exercise was for the recovery from heart failure, in which case diuretic medicines produced a better outcome Exercise is in fact so potent, the researchers suggested that drug companies ought to be required to include it for comparison when conducting clinical trials for new drugs High-intensity interval training, which requires but a fraction of the time compared to conventional cardio, has been shown to be FAR more effective. It s also the only exercise that really gives you an efficient cardiovascular workout Dr. Mercola October 18, Z1 97

98 Step 6 - Medicinal Plants and Killing Pathogens A remarkable human clinical study published in the journal Diabetes Care, the journal of the American Diabetes Association, revealed that turmeric extract was 100% successful at preventing prediabetic patients from becoming diabetic over the course of a 9-month intervention. In addition, the curcumin treatment appeared to improve overall function of β-cells, with very minor adverse effects. The full study can be viewed for free on the American Diabetic Association's Diabetes Care website: 98

99 The Bible supports the use of herbs and we should use them appropriately as God s medicines. Herbs are noted throughout the Bible and have evidence of human use in every civilization. Plants or herbs are the primary medicine of over 80% of the world's population and have the longest use of any other modality for the promotion of health and the treatment of disease. Whole plant medicines usually have a more gentle and balanced effect than isolated chemicals of synthetic drugs. Herbs promote homeostatic mechanisms and do not suppress the body s efforts to heal. When compared to medical drugs, there are very few reports of adverse effects from the use of medicinal plants as compared to medical drugs which cause thousands of deaths each year. It is prudent to be aware of potential herbdrug interactions. When the hay is removed, and the tender grass shows itself, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, (Proverbs 27:25 NKJ) For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; (Hebrews 6:7 NKJ) Now Isaiah had said, "Let them take a lump of figs, and apply it as a poultice on the boil, and he shall recover. (Isaiah 38:21 NKJ) In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

107 Pathogens have been around since the beginning and we are constantly exposed. Thus many, many people have pathogens and are not aware of it. A person is more able to overcome pathogens by the cleansing of toxins and boosting their immune system. A primary resource for dealing with pathogens is God s gift of herbs. There are many herbs that have strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-parasitical properties. The environment we create in our tissues has everything to do with whether pathogens take up residence to create a stronghold or not. Due to the prevalence of pathogens and the accumulation of toxins and nutritional deficiencies, most people have one or several pathogens operating in their body. VIRUSES A virus is a small infectious agent that can only replicate inside the cells of another organism. Viruses infect all types of organisms, from animals and plants to bacteria. About 5,000 viruses have been described in detail although there are millions of different types. All viruses have genes made from either DNA or RNA, which are long molecules that carry genetic information. All viruses have a protein coating that protects these genes and some have an envelope of fat that surrounds them when they are outside a cell. Viruses vary from simple helical shapes to more complex structures. Most viruses are about one hundred times smaller than an average bacterium. Examples of human diseases caused by viruses include the common cold, influenza, chickenpox, Ebola, hepatitis B and C, AIDS, avian influenza SARS and cold sores. Normal virus symptoms can be diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain, fever, body aches, fatigue, headache, and sore throat. But sometimes a virus may lie dormant until the body is weak enough for it to manifest, such as shingles, which is the herpes zoster (chicken pox) virus. Viruses also seem to anchor-in certain areas of the body such as the small bowel. There are many types of viruses that manifest in different ways and one herb that will kill one may not kill another. 107

108 Georgetown University and independent laboratory research prove that Oregacillin kills a wide range of germs, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Oregacillin reduced the human flu virus 99.9% in 20 minutes from 10,000,000 to 5,000 infectious units per ml at 1% dilution. Wild oregano and wild oregano-based spice extract formulations exhibit significant antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial activity against a variety of microorganisms. & & 73.com/research.asp Advanced Cellular Silver 200 is a powerful and comprehensive antimicrobial going far beyond colloidal silver formulas in both antimicrobial and healing effect. ACS 200 is anti-viral, bactericidal, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic, killing Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Candida, and Rhinovirus at % in less than 3 minutes. ( BACTERIA Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a wide range of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals. There are approximately ten times as many bacterial cells in the human flora as there are human cells in the body, with large numbers of bacteria on the skin and as gut flora. The vast majority of the bacteria in the body are rendered harmless by the protective effects of the immune system. A few are beneficial. However, a few species of bacteria are pathogenic and cause infectious diseases, including cholera, syphilis, anthrax, leprosy, and bubonic plague. The most common fatal bacterial diseases are respiratory infections, with tuberculosis alone killing about 2 million people a year. The classic symptoms of a local bacterial infection are redness, heat, swelling, and pain. Local pain in a specific part of the body can be a significant indicator. Kidney infections are usually bacterial, which could cause fever and low back pain. But bacteria can invade and infect other internal organs and systems that are not usually attributed to bacteria. One example is the arteries. A common avenue of bacterial infections is through the gums, which affects the arteries and the heart. People with poor dental hygiene and those who don't brush their teeth regularly end up with bleeding gums, which provide an entry to the bloodstream for up to 700 different types of bacteria found in our mouths. This increases the risk of having a heart attack, 108

109 according to microbiologists from the University of Bristol and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. - (Sept 2008, Our results support the hypothesis that infectious agents are involved in the development of atherosclerosis. We showed a significant association between infectious burden and the extent of atherosclerosis. Moreover, the infectious pathogens were especially involved in patients with advanced atherosclerosis. (Johannes Gutenberg University - Mainz, Germany) PARASITES, PROTOZOA, AMOEBAS Parasite: An organism that lives in or on a host (animal or plant); the parasite obtains nourishment from the host without benefiting or killing the host. There are thousands of varieties of parasites that are worms, protozoa, and amoebas looking for a host. Symptoms of infestations include diarrhea, (sometimes alternating with constipation), an ashen complexion, gas, a gurgling or growling stomach, an increase or decrease of appetite, an inability to gain or to lose weight, low grade fevers, coughing, hyperactivity or lethargy, grinding of teeth at night (bruxism), fatigue after eating, allergies, asthma, snoring, abdominal pains, restlessness, anemia, nausea, dizziness, seizures, rectal itching, insomnia, vaginal itching, shortness of breath, intestinal bleeding, low grade infection, blood sugar problems, colon blockages, tumor-like masses, irritability (especially around the full moon, when worms are active), hair thinning or loss, bad breath, body odor, mucous in stools, joint pains, abdominal pains, rashes, and a multitude of others. If you have parasites, you may have one or more of these symptoms or none at all. Some of the main indicators of parasite infestation are: Foul smelling stools - worse in afternoon and evening Alternating consistency of stools and bowel habits Itching around the anus, especially at night Stomach aches or bowel cramping Excessive nose irritations or picking Grinding teeth at night Restlessness even in sleep 109

110 Parasites have been found associated with the following health conditions: diabetes, hypoglycemia, juvenile diabetes, anorexia, asthma, depression, anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, AIDS, cancer, tumors, anorexia, bulimia, colitis, epilepsy, hyper-activity syndromes, learning disabilities, baldness, prostate trouble, appendicitis (the appendix is a favorite place for parasites), elevated white blood counts, Hodgkin's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, psoriasis, some eczemas, leukemia, lymphoma, arthritis, leprosy, ulcerative colitis, low hemoglobin, poor blood quality, iron deficiencies, most bowel disorders, and the list could continue. Parasites can be difficult to detect and can live in the liver, pancreas, lungs, bile duct, brain, muscles, joints, appendix, small intestine, large intestine, prostate, uterus, fallopian tubes, vagina, and gall bladder, and about anywhere else in the body. Parasites feed on the nutrients from our food, our blood, and our tissues; and then their excrement becomes our toxins. Some parasites excrete a toxin that keeps the eggs from hatching. After you remove the adults, the eggs will hatch later on, therefore use a 10 day on and 5 day off treatment program is needed to break the cycle. The best approach for recovery from parasites is to kill the parasites, remove the toxins, repair the damage, and then strengthen the immune system. Don t kill parasites in the colon without making sure the colon is moving well enough to move them and their toxins out. Exposure and thus potential infestation can come from a number of sources such as walking barefoot in contaminated soil, eating unclean fruits and vegetables, raw meat, raw fish (sushi),improperly cooked foods, drinking contaminated water supplies, sexual intercourse, sleeping with or kissing pets, working in the garden, touching your eyes, nose, or mouth after touching something contaminated. The following are a few precautions to help avoid parasitic infestations: 1. Don t drink tap water. 2. Never drink from rivers, creeks, or streams. 3. Salad bars may contain improperly washed produce. 4. Many aged cheeses may have parasites. 5. Don t go barefoot at the beach, horse stable, etc. 6. Avoid raw fish (sushi). 7. Avoid raw or undercooked meat. 110

111 8. Always wash hands thoroughly after using the bathroom. 9. Parasites can be transferred through intimate contact. 10. Use separate feeding dishes for your pets -- never yours. 11. Use separate cutting boards for meats, veggies, and breads. 12. Clean cutting boards with vinegar followed by hydrogen peroxide. 13. Properly cleanse cutting knives used on meats, etc. 14. Don't let your pet sleep on your bed. 15. Have your pets de-wormed on a regular basis. 16. Clean your pet's bedding often and thoroughly. 17. Clean your carpets often. 18. Wash hands thoroughly immediately after gardening. 19. Don t let your pet lick you and if it happens, then wash thoroughly. 20. After handling raw meat, wash properly. YEAST, CANDIDA, FUNGUS The most common organism implicated in fungal infections is candida, which is found in the human digestive tract. Under normal circumstances, levels of candida in the bowel are controlled by beneficial bacteria. However, if the bacteria-fungus balance is upset (by the use of antibiotics or a high sugar-carbohydrate diet) an overgrowth of candida can occur. Candidiasis is a fungal infection of any of the candida species, of which candida albicans is the most common. Candida infections range from superficial, such as oral thrush and vaginitis, to systemic and potentially life-threatening diseases including cancer. A white coating on the tongue is a very good indicator. High-Level Yeast Indicators taken antibiotics for acne or urinary tract infections for one month or longer taken a broad-spectrum antibiotic drug for any reason coated white tongue taken steroids or asthma medications chronic fungous infections of the skin or nails crave sugar/sweets and consume it every day crave breads, pasta, and other carbohydrate exposure to chemicals such as perfumes, insecticides which cause a reaction have a history of ulcerative colitis or Crohn s disease constipation or diarrhea or it alternates 111

112 (female) vaginal burning, itching (female) vaginal discharge that is white, or cottage-cheesy (female) had vaginal yeast infections (female) current pain in bladder, kidney, or urinary tract (female) ever had endometriosis Some good anti-candida remedies are oregano extract, pau d arco, olive leaf, grapefruit seed extract, garlic, goldenseal, and tea tree oil. The infected person should also replenish the bowel flora with probiotics such as acidophilus and follow the anti-candida diet for a minimum of 2 weeks. Carbohydrates must be limited to about 80 grams daily since the body processes carbohydrates into sugar/glucose. Eat lots of vegetables and protein. Eliminate sugar, corn syrup, honey, natural sweeteners, and high fructose fruits, alcohol, yeast products (breads, crackers), fermented and mold foods (cheese, vinegar, cultured dairy), refined foods (white rice, white flour), processed meats (contain antibiotics), trans-fats, peanuts and peanut butter, and fruit except for apples low in fructose. MOLDS Molds are fungi that are found everywhere both indoors and outdoors all year round. The terms fungi and mold are often used interchangeably, but mold is actually a type of fungi. Exposure to mold can cause a variety of adverse health effects. There are many thousands of species of mold and most if not all of the mold found indoors comes from outdoor sources. It seems likely to grow and become a problem only when there is water damage, high humidity, or dampness. Molds produce and release millions of spores small enough to be air-borne, water-borne, or insect-borne. They also produce toxic agents known as mycotoxins. Spores and mycotoxins can have negative effects on human health. People at greatest risk are individuals with allergies, asthma, sinusitis, or other respiratory conditions, as well as infants and children, and the elderly. Some good anti-mold remedies are oregano extract, grapefruit seed extract, and the use of certain essential oils. When one considers the size of parasites, bacteria, and viruses, 112

113 one could imagine that parasitical worms have bacterial infections and that bacteria have viruses in them. When doing a cleanse, it is possible to release other microbes or germs when killing the bigger host. A comprehensive program with several agents can be more effective and more prudent. One item, not an herb, but of particular interest is chlorine dioxide. According to the American Society of Analytical Chemists in 1999, they proclaimed chlorine dioxide to be "the most powerful pathogen killer known to man." It works by robbing an oxygen molecule from cells that are acidic (pathogens are acidic in nature and also the toxic cells in our body), thereby disrupting cellular structure. and With the reality of germ warfare, there is possibility of exposure to weaponized bacteria and manufactured resistant viruses and other microbial germs designed for mass destruction. In addition, medical prescriptions for antibiotics, antifungal drugs, parasitical drugs, and vaccines have proven to be either not effective or too damaging for safe use. It is prudent to understand the power of herbs and essential oils.

New research has mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death. "The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated." Recent experimental evidence has shown that laser pulses tuned to the right frequency can kill certain viruses. However, locating these so-called resonant frequencies is a bit of trial. Science on MSNBC News, updated 2/5/

115 Zappers have been around for years and are very effective and easily obtained. Some are better than others. They use special low frequencies to resonate within parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungus that literally cause them to shake to death or explode. 115

116 Step 7 Receive Your Redemption and Inheritance SCRIPTURES ON HEALING Healing was a part of the old covenant Healing is in the atonement and cannot be separated from salvation Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom and healed all who were sick and oppressed of the devil He commissioned all who believe to the same ministry He had of evangelism, healing, and deliverance Love results in obedience to the Lord s commands and healing is a part of discipleship We are healed by the name of Jesus and our faith comes through Him and from Him Jesus that healed yesterday still heals today God wants us healed in all parts of being And He said, "If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer." Exodus 15:26 NAS "Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness which He swore to your forefathers. "He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you. "You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle. The LORD will remove from you all sickness; and He will not put on you any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will lay them on all who hate you. Deuteronomy 7:12-15 NAS 116

117 In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa became diseased in his feet. His disease was severe, yet even in his disease he did not seek the LORD, but the physicians. 2 Chronicles 16:12 NAS LORD my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me. Psalms 30:2 NAS The LORD will sustain him upon his sickbed; In his illness, You restore him to health. Psalms 41:3 NAS No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent. Psalms 91:10 NAS Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Psalms 103:3 NAS He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalms 107:20 NAS My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body. Proverbs 4:20-22 NAS Pleasant words are a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 NAS `For I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,' declares the LORD, `Because they have called you an outcast, saying: "It is Zion; no one cares for her."' Jeremiah 30:17 NAS "By the river on its bank, on one side and on the other, will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither and their fruit will not fail. They will bear every month because their water flows from the sanctuary, and their fruit will be for food and their leaves for healing." Ezekiel 47:12 NAS And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean." Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Matthew 8:2-3 NAS When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: "HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES." Matthew 8:16-17 NAS Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Matthew 9:35 NAS Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Matthew 10:1 NAS 117

118 "These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." Mark 16:17-18 NAS "And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16 NAS Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. James 5:13-15 NAS and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. I Peter 2:24 NAS Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 2 NAS in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2 NAS IDENTIFYING EMOTIONAL WOUNDS When we have hurts and torments, the first thing we need to do is identify the problem, and realize the need for inner healing. Below is a common list of common symptoms to look for in somebody who has an emotional wound: Inner rawness: there's often a sense of inner rawness and hurt that doesn't seem to go away. Irritability: it's easy to become irritable with others, even if they aren't doing anything wrong! Little or no tolerance: there is a low tolerance issue with others, where you expect and demand from them. Feelings always rising up: feelings of anger, hate, resentment, etc. seem to "rise up" within you at the slightest offense from others. 118

119 Overly sensitive about an event in your past: If there are events in your past which cause you to become very sensitive or angry, or even cause you to lash out, then it is likely revealing a deep emotional wound tied in with that event or memory. Hard to forgive: it becomes very difficult, if not impossible to love and therefore forgive others. It can also be hard to forgive and love yourself. It can even be hard to forgive and love God, even though He has done nothing wrong against you! Hard to feel loved: it is hard to clearly see and realize the love of others and God in your life. You may be surrounded by people who love you, but it can be difficult to fully feel and receive that love. There seems to be a wall that blocks the flow of love into your life. Lashing out: when there's an inner wound that has festered, it becomes easy to lash out or have sudden outbursts of anger, hate, resentment, etc. You may find it easy to lash out at people who love you, and have done you no harm. Feelings of anger towards God: when a person has been wounded, it becomes easy to blame God for their troubles and hardships. This is the last thing that you want to do when seeking to be healed, because it virtually puts a wall in your mind that can block the healing power of the Holy Spirit to operate. Although He desires to heal your wound, He will not override your freewill, and if you hold hate in your heart against Him, it can block His efforts to heal your wounds. Self-hate: many times when a person is hurt from past abuse, they will begin to think that perhaps what happened to them was deserved because of something they did or the way that they were. This is not true. Abuse is never acceptable, even if a child was being out of order. Parental love disciplines and corrects, but never abuses. Easily frustrated: because an inner turmoil that an inner wound causes, it is easy to become easily frustrated with everyday chores and responsibilities. Escapism: as a result of inner turmoil, it is easy to desire to escape or suppress reality. This can be in the form of overeating, drinking, smoking, porn, spending binges, etc. When a person indulges in escapism, addictions can form, and open the door to spirits of addiction, which makes the addictions virtually impossible to break. Cutting: a person who is a cutter is usually someone that is holding much pain, feels that they deserve the pain (self-hate/religious bondage), and needs to admit the pain and release it. 119

120 Retaliation urges: because of built-up hate and anger as a result of unforgiveness, somebody who has a festering inner wound will find it easy to retaliate or snap back at those who offend them or step on their toes. Irresponsible behavior: inner pain has a way of consuming a person's mind, and eventually this can take on a careless approach to life. It is hard to feel good about yourself if you have an inner wound, and if you don't feel good about yourself, it will begin to show in your lifestyle. Irrational expectations of others: somebody who has been wounded may set high expectations for those around them. They feel that others ought to hold up to unrealistic standards, and are very intolerable to any mistakes made. They find it hard to forbear (put up with) one another as the Bible commands of us (see Colossians 3:13). Perfectionism: a person who has an emotional wound may also be performance driven. Perhaps they felt like no matter what they did, they could never please a parent or authority figure, and later on in life, that rejection wound causes the person to be a performer to the point where they are never satisfied and burned out by their efforts. Feelings of hopelessness: I believe this is also a common result of unresolved inner wounds. Since the love of God is blocked in your life, it becomes hard to see why He would love or care for you, and therefore you become an easy target for feelings of hopelessness. Driven: when you suffer from an emotional wound, it can create a sense of void in your life's meaning, thus driving you to find meaning and purpose and happiness. This could be in the form of college degrees, careers, financial success, etc. Instead of appreciating the person who God has made (YOU!), you find yourself chasing what you think will bring true happiness and purpose to your life. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD: OCD sometimes involves emotional wounds that were never fully healed. This is especially true with people who have bondages to self-hate, self-resentment, self-unforgiveness, etc. Hostility towards God, self, and others: because of bound up emotions, a person can tend to feel hostile towards God, other people in their life, or even themselves. This is usually rooted in a form of bitterness against God for not preventing something from happening to you, bitterness against somebody who has wronged or harmed you emotionally, or bitterness against yourself for failures that you've fallen into yourself. 120

121 Lord Jesus, You came and died to heal our wounded and troubled hearts. You forgave me of all my sin and so now I ask for help to forgive all those who have hurt me and offended me. I now choose to release these people and release the pain I have been holding. I no longer want to hold them responsible. I ask You to forgive me for holding on to these hurts and for not forgiving these people. Now that I have chosen to forgive them, I ask you to heal my heart and remove the pain and torment caused by own sin. Heal the pain of my memories, so that nothing that has happened to me will cause me to remain in pain, anger, and fear. I ask you to look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive myself and others and remove that from me. I ask you to heal those wounds that cause me physical illness and take that from me. I ask you to release me now so that I may love myself and others. In the name of Jesus, I ask you to remove from me and heal me from blood sugar problems, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, back problems, feet problems, lung problems, kidney problems, liver problems, insomnia, insanity, fears, anxiety, and emotional problems. REMOVING OF GENERATIONAL CURSES AND RECEIVING YOUR INHERITANCE Num. 14:18 NAS - The LORD is slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations. 19 "Pardon, I pray, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Your lovingkindness, just as You also have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now." 20 So the LORD said, "I have pardoned them according to your word; Father God, creator of heaven and earth, I come to You in the name of your son Jesus Christ. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against You. I honor my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood and by adoption, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce and divorce myself from Satan and all of his works in me and my family. I renounce and forsake all involvement in Freemasonry or any other lodge or craft or cult by my ancestors and myself. I renounce the idolatry, blasphemy, secrecy, deception, and 121

122 witchcraft resulting from involvement in other organizations. I specifically renounce the insecurity, the love of position and power, the love of money, covetousness, and greed, and the pride that would have led my ancestors into a cult or occult organization. I renounce all the fears that held them captive, especially the fears of death, fears of men, and fears of trusting. I renounce the oaths, rituals, curses taken by any of my ancestors or myself and the curses and penalties involved with those oaths. I pray for the healing of my organs and my physical body affected by oaths and curses. I renounce all allegiances to individuals or organizations that are in conflict with the primary allegiance of my life, Jesus Christ, as revealed in God's word, the Bible. Father God, I ask you cut off all these curses and their effects on my family and me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I command the evil spirits to be bound up, and to leave me now, leaving nothing of evil remaining and never to return to me or my family. I claim the promise of God's word that whosoever calls on the name of the Lord Jesus, shall be delivered. I ask to be delivered of every curse of sickness, infirmity, affliction, addiction, disease or allergy associated with these sins that I have confessed and renounced. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for the healing of any area in my life where healing is needed. Lord, I repent and renounce, and I ask You to forgive me and my generational line for involvement with sexual impurity, gossip, slander, murder, critical judgment, envy, strife, holding offenses, accusation, jealousy, lying, denying You, speaking accusations against You, conceiving and uttering falsehoods from the heart, speaking oppression and revolt, and entering into witchcraft. Lord, I repent for myself and anyone in my family line that offered sacrifices that were not favorable and right. I repent for any withholding of the tithe, first fruits, and the best portions, and for all wrong motives and attitudes of the heart. Father God, I repent for my ancestors that were hasty to get wealth, lovers of this world, lazy, and selfish. I ask you to break all curses of poverty and lack off of me and my family. I ask you to remove any curses that would keep me from enjoying the fruits of my labor. Now Father God, in Jesus name, I ask humbly for the blood of Jesus Christ, Your Son, to cleanse me from all these sins I have confessed and renounced, to cleanse my spirit, soul and every part of my body which has been effected by these sins. I ask You to heal 122

123 me and my family and to release your blessings upon us. Heavenly Father, I now ask You to go back in my bloodline on my father's and mother's sides and release all of the generational blessings that have been blocked, dammed up, and held back because of these sins, transgressions and iniquities. Thank You, Father God, for your mercy, your forgiveness and your love, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. 123

124 Some Extraordinary Substances EARTH (GROUNDING) Walking barefoot on the Earth transfers free electrons from the Earth s surface into your body that spread throughout your tissues providing beneficial effects. This process is called grounding. Grounding has been shown to relieve chronic pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, thin your blood, enhance well-being and much, much more. Inflammation thrives when your blood is thick and you have a lot of free radical stress, and a lot of positive charges in your body. Grounding effectively alleviates inflammation because it thins your blood and infuses you with negatively charged ions through the soles of your feet. Research has demonstrated it takes about 80 minutes for the free electrons from the earth to reach your bloodstream and transform your blood. Grounding's effect on blood thinning is so profound that if you are taking blood thinners you must work with your health care provider to lower your dose otherwise you may overdose on the medication. Dr. Mercola - October 19, mpaign= z1 "I don't like people to ground when they're taking Coumadin," Dr. Sinatra warns. "It's a relative contraindication because we have had people ground, taking Coumadin at the same time, and their blood became like water. Dr. Mercola August 04, BLACK SALVE There exists a blend of herbs so powerful, effective, and safe for treating skin cancer that no other conventional treatment even comes close. Black Salve is one of the most powerful natural cancer treatments known that can be applied directly to malignancies for rapid healing. Learn more: SODIUM CHLORITE (MMS) 124

125 MMS is the common name for Chlorine Dioxide (ClO2), which is produced when Sodium Chlorite is mixed (activated) with an acid (usually citric acid a common citrus fruit extract). In 1997, it was discovered that Chlorine Dioxide quickly cured malaria. Further research revealed that many other ailments could either be improved or cured. Extensive anecdotal case history 12,13,14 exists showing statistically significant improvements and even cures in cancer, autism, infections, dental issues... even HIV/AIDS. Although the word Chlorine is in the name, it is very different from common household Clorox Bleach or pool chlorine, which are poisons known to be carcinogenic. 7,8 Chlorine Dioxide works differently than Chlorine in that it destroys the pathogens completely through oxidation, and is itself destroyed in the reaction leaving nothing behind to build up or cause side effects. The by-products are table salt, discharged oxygen atoms, and the remains of dead pathogens that are easily removed by the body. (Chlorine Dioxide = ClO2, Chlorine = Cl, Bleach (sodium hypochlorite) = NaOCl. ClO2 does not equal Cl and does not equal NaOCl). Can a person get hurt or sick from MMS? If used incorrectly, MMS can hurt you, which can be said for most anything, including water, aspirin or peanuts. The key to using MMS is going low & slow. MMS is a strong detoxing tool. As such, it requires respect, knowledge and proper use. However, MMS and healthy human tissue both have a positive electrical charge and therefore repel each other. On the other hand, the surface of pathogens carry a negative electrical charge 9,10 which attracts them to MMS where they can be oxidized. Also, no deaths have ever been attributed to MMS while each year over 700,000 deaths are attributed to traditional medical intervention, in the US alone. 1 What does the FDA say about MMS? To date, the FDA released an official notice 2 saying MMS is dangerous and that nobody should use it. However, Chlorine Dioxide is a weaker oxidizer than both oxygen and ozone, both of which are used in the human body for health benefits. Chlorine Dioxide has an oxidation potential of.95 volts, oxygen has an oxidation potential of 1.28 volts and ozone has an oxidation potential of 2.07 volts. Healthy human tissue is able to withstand 1.28 volts, (the oxidation potential of oxygen) and therefore cannot be harmed by Chlorine Dioxide. Pathogens, on the other hand are no match for the.95 volts of Chlorine Dioxide, in fact, Chlorine Dioxide has been known to kill bacteria in a petri dish in 2-5 seconds. Ironically, the FDA approves of Chlorine Dioxide in food processing and many other applications. 125

126 Most current version is available at References MSM (METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE) MSM, which is a metabolite of DMSO approved for use in humans, primarily impacts your health by reducing inflammation. It s widely used as a supplement for arthritic conditions. MSM also appears to improve cell wall permeability, so it can be used to help deliver other active ingredients. MSM may be providing a missing link for optimal health, which appears to be related to sulfur. MSM is 34 percent sulfur by weight, but it is more than just a simple sulfur donor. It also affects sulfur metabolism in the human body, although it s still not entirely clear how. But without sulfur, glutathione cannot work. Dr. Mercola March 03, Its proven benefits are: Powerful anti-inflammatory Relieve aches and pains / sore muscles and achy joints Anti-aging Detoxification Reduce or eliminate environmental allergies DMSO (DIMETHYL SULFOXIDE) DMSO is an inexpensive compound that holds great promise in managing a diverse array of health conditions, yet has largely been ignored by the medical community. DMSO is currently approved for only one clinical indication: interstitial cystitis, a painful chronic inflammatory condition of the urinary bladder. Originally discovered as a byproduct of paper manufacturing, DMSO has remarkable pain relieving abilities. It is also has antiinflammatory and antioxidant properties. According to Dr. Stanley Jacob, DMSO holds promise in treating the following conditions: Alzheimer s disease - DMSO has been shown to dissolve amyloids, the proteins that occur in the hallmark brain lesions of patients with Alzheimer s and almost invariably lead to the functional loss and eventual death of brain cells. 126

127 Arthritis - With its ability to penetrate tissues, DMSO shows value in reducing pain and inflammation in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and possibly gout. Down s syndrome - Researchers have noted that when children born with Down s syndrome were treated with DMSO, mental and neurological functions improved in a number of areas. Fibromyalgia - According to Dr. Jacob, 70% of fibromyalgia patients he treated with DMSO for several years experienced benefits with no side effects. He believes these effects were due to pharmacological actions of DMSO such as free-radical scavenging, analgesia, anti-inflammation, softening of scar tissue, reduction of muscle spasms, and stimulation of healing. Herpes - DMSO has been used to enhance penetration of alpha-interferon ointment in the treatment of herpes. Scleroderma - In basic work done at the Cleveland Clinic, topical DMSO was found to have an anti-inflammatory effect while increasing blood supply to the skin. Spinal cord injury - Data shows that if DMSO is given intravenously within the first minutes after injury, the number of laboratory animals that recover was much higher than in those not receiving DMSO. Dr. Jacob says this is an area he would like to pursue, noting, If we have 10,000 severe spinal cord injuries per year in the US quadriplegic and paraplegic there could be fewer patients who will need long-term care.

A saturated fat which can accelerate the loss of midsection fat (the most dangerous kind). Well, there are now two solid, human studies showing just two tablespoons a day (30 ml), in both men and women, is capable of reducing belly fat within 1-3 months. Brain-Boosting: A now famous study, published in 2006 in the journal Neurobiology of Aging, showed that the administration of medium chain triglycerides (most plentifully found in coconut oil) in 20 subjects with Alzheimer's disease or mild cognitive impairment, resulted in significant increases in ketone bodies (within only 90 minutes after treatment) associated with measurable cognitive improvement in those with less severe cognitive dysfunction. Clearing Head Lice: When combined with anise spray, coconut oil was found to be superior to the insecticide permethrin (.43%). 127

128 Healing Wounds: Coconut has been used for wound healing since time immemorial. Three of the identified mechanisms behind these healing effects are its ability to accelerate re-epithelialization, improve antioxidant enzyme activity, and stimulate higher collagen cross-linking within the tissue being repaired. Coconut oil has even been shown to work synergistically with traditional treatments, such as silver sulphadizine, to speed burn wound recovery. NSAID Alternative: Coconut oil has been demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic and fever-reducing properties. Anti-Ulcer Activity: Interestingly, coconut milk (which includes coconut oil components), has been shown to be as effective as the conventional drug sucralfate as an NSAID-associated anti-ulcer agent. Anti-Fungal: In 2004, 52 isolates of Candida species were exposed to coconut oil. The most notorious form, Candida albicans, was found to have the highest susceptibility. Researchers remarked: "Coconut oil should be used in the treatment of fungal infections in view of emerging drug-resistant Candida species." Testosterone-Booster: Coconut oil was found to reduce oxidative stress in the testes of rats, resulting in significantly higher levels of testosterone. Reducing Swollen Prostate: Coconut oil has been found to reduce testosteroneinduced benign prostate growth in rats. Improving Blood Lipids: Coconut oil consistently improves the LDL:HDL ratio in the blood of those who consume it. Given this effect, coconut oil can no longer be dismissed for being 'that saturated fat which clogs the arteries.' Fat-Soluble Nutrient Absorption: Coconut oil was recently found to be superior to safflower oil in enhancing tomato carotenoid absorption. Bone Health: Coconut oil has been shown to reduce oxidative stress within the bone, which may prevent structural damage in osteoporotic bone. Sunscreen: Coconut oil has been shown to block out UV rays by 30%. Keep in mind that this is good, insofar as UVA rays are damaging to the skin, whereas UVB rays are highly beneficial (when exposure is moderate). Sayer Ji, September 3rd oil?utm_source= Greenmedinfo&utm_medium= &utm_term=0_193c8492fb bf People who traditionally consume large quantities of coconut oil as part of their ordinary diet have a very low incidence of heart disease and have normal blood cholesterol levels. This has been well supported by numerous population studies. The research shows that those people who consume large quantities of coconut oil have remarkably good cardiovascular health.

129 TYPE II COLLAGEN Scientists have now discovered that both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are caused when the body launches an autoimmune attack against exposed fragments of collagen. Un-denatured type II collagen, or UC-II, is a protein supplement that acts against the autoimmune reactions that can lead to join pain and degeneration. Animal and human studies convincingly demonstrate that induction of oral tolerance with UC-II reduces pain and improves joint function in osteoarthritis and, more recently, in people without arthritis but who suffer joint pain and stiffness following exercise. October Life Extension Magazine - Against-Arthritis_01.htm In a randomized, double-blind, clinical study 40 mg of (UC-II) was more than two-times as effective as 1,500 mg of glucosamine + 1,200 mg of chondroitin in supporting joint health, comfort and flexibility.

Int J Med Sci 2009; 6(6): doi: /ijms SYSTEMIC ENZYMES (ZYMESSENCE) Systemic enzymes are the most important part of maintaining a healthy body; of fighting the processes of both aging and disease; and of undoing the planned obsolescence nature has built into our bodies to make sure we don t stay on the planet for too very long. Systemic enzymes are the only non-toxic way of controlling inflammation of every type and from whatever reason. More importantly, systemic enzymes are the only tools available in both natural and allopathic (conventional) medicine for fighting fibrosis. We also have to remember that of the two things that cause fibrosis, inflammation is the #1 major thing that brings about the formation of fibrosis and scar tissue. So control the one and you prevent the further formation of the other. Benefits of Systemic Enzymes are: Anti-Fibrosis -Systemic Enzymes eat scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis is scar tissue and most doctors learn in anatomy that it is fibrosis that eventually kills us all. Systemic Enzymes are the first line of defense against inflammation. Blood Cleansing - Cleaning excess fibrin from the blood and reducing the stickiness of blood cells. 129

130 Immune System Modulating - the enzymes will tone down immune function and eat away at the antibodies the immune system is making to attack its bodies own tissue. Virus and Bacteria Fighting REDOX SIGNALING MOLECULES (ASEA) ASEA is trillions of stable, perfectly balanced Redox Signaling Molecules suspended in a pristine saline solution the same molecules that exist in the cells of the human body. Redox Signaling is a function that is central to all life on the planet. Redox Signaling molecules are created within every cell of the body and are vital to the immune system and to cellular healing mechanisms. They are so essential to life that without them, you would die within seconds. A proper supply of Redox Signaling molecules enables cellular healing: damaged, dysfunctional cells fading away and healthy, vibrant cells taking over. Redox Signaling molecules are vital for the health of your cells; that s why your body makes its own supply. But after the age of 12, our cells make fewer and fewer of these molecules. ASEA is the world s only source for replenishing Redox Signaling molecules. ASEA s first most important job is to increase cellular communication ASEA s second most important job is as an antioxidant activator, which increases the production of Glutathione by 67% and the bioactivity and bioavailability of Glutathione and SOD by 500%. ASEA has zero toxicity and will not interact with medications ASEA is Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-fungal ASEA helps the body heal itself and allows the body to move towards homeostasis ASEA helps the body detoxify STEM CELLS (STEM-KINE) Stem-Kine is a blend of nutrients that has been demonstrated to stimulate your body's natural repair capabilities. Stem-Kine has been clinically proven to increase the amount of circulating stem cells in the body for an extended period of time. Just as fertilizer stimulates a tree to bear more fruit, Stem-Kine nourishes your bone marrow to release 130

131 more of its own stem cells into circulation and to protect those cells from oxidative stress. Stem-Kine has been clinically tested in collaboration with: Indiana University, University of California - San Diego, and University of Utah - Salt Lake City. Individuals with high levels of circulating stem cells experience: An overall increase in well-being Reduced signs and symptoms of aging Improved recovery time following injuries and surgery Improved nail and hair growth Heightened energy levels A healthier complexion SILVER SOL Silver Sol, in essence, is simply silver particles dispersed in purified water. The term Sol is a chemical designation of a pure mineral permanently suspended in water where the mineral s charge is transferred to the entire body of water. The benefits of silver are numerous and include: Broad-spectrum antimicrobial (some silvers have been shown in vitro to destroy bacteria, both forms of viruses, fungus and other significant diseases including the following: MRSA, SARS, malaria, anthrax poisoning, gram-negative bacteria, gram-positive bacteria, Hepatitis C, AIDS, and influenza Potent anti-inflammatory Non-toxic, even at high levels No side effects or contra-indications; safe for all individuals Doesn t encourage resistant microbial strains Has prophylactic potential in disease prevention Immune system enhancer Cost-effective Internal and topical usage Works synergistically with prescribed antibiotics More effective than traditional antibiotics and other drugs Older Colloidal or Ionic Silver Nature of Compound Suspension Solution Date of Development Late 1800 s Late 1990 s Silver Sol 131

134 Are You Ripe For Cancer? WHAT IS CANCER? In 1931 Otto Warburg discovered and demonstrated that cancer cells are normal cells which become anaerobic cancer cells once they lack as little as 35% oxygen. The cells then start fermenting blood sugar (glucose) as a source of fuel. Simply stated the prime cause of cancer is oxygen deprivation at the cellular level. The body requires special fats which make it possible for sufficient oxygen to reach the cells via the cell membranes. These special fats are essential fatty acids which must be consumed daily because the body can t manufacture them. They are parent omega-6, termed linoleic acid (LA), and parent omega-3, termed alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Insufficient EFAs in the diet can reduce the oxygen absorption of cells sufficiently to cause cancer. Moreover, EFA deficiency can cause the body to substitute into the cell membranes non-oxygenating fats that impair oxygen transport (such as hydrogenated fats and trans fats), exacerbating the cancer-causing state. Cellular hypoxia occurs primarily from consumption of adulterated polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which are incorporated into cell membranes and interfere with cellular oxygen transmission. Research strongly supports the use of an unprocessed, organic supplement with a ratio of greater than 1:1, up to 2.5:1 of parent omega-6 to parent omega-3. With this ratio, suggested use of this combination is 725 mg per 40 lb. of body weight (e.g., a 160-lb. person requires 3 grams on a daily basis). From the Townsend Letter August/September EFAs, Oxygenation, and Cancer Prevention: A New Solution by Brian Scott Peskin - ESTROGEN-BASED CANCER Women who used estrogen in combination with synthetic progestin had a 69% increased risk of breast cancer, compared to women who had never used HRT. When the researchers analyzed the risk of breast cancer in women under age 51, those with the highest progesterone levels had a staggering 70% decreased risk compared to the group with the lowest progesterone levels. Life Extension Magazine Nov pg

135 The group of women who used synthetic progestin in combination with estrogen had a startling 290% greater risk of blood clots, compared to the group who never used HRT. The group receiving natural progesterone in combination with estrogen, on the other hand, had a 30% decreased risk of blood clots, compared to women who never used HRT. Life Extension Magazine Nov pg 13 Flax seeds, for example, also contain phytoestrogens and, according to Dr. Horner, there are hundreds of studies showing that flax not only protects against breast cancer more effectively than any other food we know of, but may also shrink breast tumors. She also cites research by Lilian Thompson at the University of Toronto, who has done many studies on flaxseeds and estrogen-positive tumors. In one of Dr. Thompson s studies, she found that estrogen-positive breast tumors shrank in every woman given flax seeds for three weeks. Flax seeds contain 100 times more lignans than any other known plant source and are one of the most power foods you can eat to lower your risk of breast cancer. Here's the key to understanding this controversy: Plant estrogens are not the same as the estrogens your body makes, or synthetic estrogens found in hormone replacement therapy. They are very different. Many actually act more like selective estrogen modulators or SERMS (Tamoxifen is a SERM) and as aromatase inhibitors like Arimidex. These plant chemicals act in so many complex ways that we may never fully understand them all. Dr. Mercola October 20, aign= z1 WHAT THEN IS CANCER? A cell becomes cancerous when its oxygen content falls below 35%. The cell then begins to use sugar for energy production rather than oxygen. A cell s oxygen content depends on cell respiration, which depends on the permeability of the cell membrane. Cell respiration is decreased due to toxic chemicals, hydrogenated oils, rancid oils, and an imbalance of fatty acids. When the body s immune system isn t sufficient to destroy a cancer cell, then it multiplies. Estrogen promotes cell proliferation. When estrogen is not held in check with progesterone, cancer cells proliferate. Therefore cancer is promoted by: 135

136 Lack of oxygen to the cells (oxygen deficient and bad circulation) Being acidic (an acidic system decreases oxygen into the cells) Sugar (feeds cancer cells) Toxicity Hydrogenated oils and trans fatty acids Imbalance of essential fatty acids Weak immune system Estrogen not held in check with progesterone VITAMIN D An optimal vitamin D level is critically important in minimizing your cancer risk; a study of menopausal women showed that maintaining vitamin D serum levels of 40ng/ml cut overall cancer risk by 77 percent. GrassrootsHealth founder Carole Baggerly believes 90 percent of ordinary breast cancer is related to vitamin D deficiency; in fact, breast cancer has been described as a vitamin D deficiency syndrome. Vitamin D can stop breast cancer cells from spreading by replenishing E-cadherin, one of the glue-like components giving structure to those cells. Dr. Mercola, May 12, Women with the highest levels of vitamin D had a nearly 70% reduction in their risk of breast cancer, compared to women with the lowest vitamin D levels. In one report, the effects of administering 1,100 IU a day of vitamin D (with calcium) was evaluated in postmenopausal women.40 After only four years, the risk of developing any cancer was 60% lower in the vitamin D (and calcium) group, compared with those who received placebo. The scientists then performed a more detailed analysis of the data. When excluding cancers diagnosed in the first year of the study, which would have included pre-existing cancers present at the time participants began taking vitamin D (with calcium), they found an astounding 77% reduction in cancer incidence in the group receiving vitamin D, compared with placebo. Life Extension Magazine Nov pg 44 One ground breaking study conducted in 2007 indicates that sufficient levels of vitamin D cut the risk of cancer by 60 percent. (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 85(6): June 2007) 136

137 CURCUMIN Curcumin is derived from the Indian spice turmeric and possesses several active components, all of which contribute to its anti-inflammatory and chemo-preventive power. Its multimodal effects act to simultaneously counter ten discrete causative factors in cancer development. It intervenes at each stage in the complex sequence of events that enable cancer cells to develop, proliferate, and metastasize. Its multitargeted mechanisms of action have yielded compelling results in combating a remarkably broad array of cancers, including those of the breast, uterus, cervix, prostate, and GI tract. A blossoming body of research reveals curcumin s promise in countering cancers of the blood, brain, lung, and bladder as well. Life Extension Magazine, March SELENIUM In a December 1996 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. Larry Clark presented evidence that supplemental selenium could reduce cancer death rates by as much as 50%. A Physicians Guide To Natural Health Products That Work By James Howenstine MD, page 148 The patients receiving selenium had a 67% decrease in cancer of the prostate, a 58% decrease in colon or rectal cancer and a 45% decrease in lung cancer. This suggests that possibly up to 100,000 lives a year might be saved in the USA by the simple addition of selenium to the diet. A Physicians Guide to Natural Health Products That Work By James Howenstine MD, page 149 An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) by Clark et al. (1996) showed that 200 mcg of supplemental selenium a day reduced overall cancer mortality by 50% in humans compared to a placebo group not receiving supplemental selenium. This 9-year study demonstrated that a low-cost mineral supplement could cut the risk of dying from cancer in half in certain individuals. Disease Prevention And Treatment by Life Extension Foundation, page 1255 A Powerful Antioxidant "selenium is a crucial mineral in the battle against prostate cancer," says Dr. Schachter. In one study of hundreds of men, a daily intake of 200 micrograms of selenium cut the incidence of prostate cancer by 60 percent. Alternative Cures by Bill Gottlieb, page

138 Although the study failed to show the effectiveness of selenium in altering the course of either basal or squamous cell carcinoma, selenium impacted the incidence of other types of malignancies with amazing success (Clark et al. 1996). The overall reduction in cancer incidence was 37% in the selenium-supplemented group; a 50% reduction in cancer mortality was observed over a 10-year period. The following are the site-specific reductions in cancer incidence observed in the study: colon-rectal cancers (58%), lung cancer (46%), and prostate cancer (63%). A selenium deficiency appears to increase the risk of prostate cancer fourfold to fivefold. It was determined that, as the male population ages, selenium levels decrease, paralleling an increase in prostate cancer (Brooks et al. 2001). Disease Prevention and Treatment by Life Extension Foundation, page STARVING CANCER: KETOGENIC DIET A KEY TO RECOVERY There is a new cancer treatment that is free, has virtually no side effects, and can be used in conjunction with other cancer treatments. It involves cutting out carbohydrates, beginning with the worst carb of all - sugar. When Dr. Dominic D'Agostino and his team of scientists at the University of South Florida removed carbohydrates from the diets of lab mice, the mice survived highly aggressive metastatic cancer even better than when they were treated with chemotherapy. All cells, including cancer cells, are fueled by glucose. But if you deprive them of glucose, they switch to the alternate fuel, ketone bodies. Except cancer cells. A defect prevents them from making the switch to using ketone bodies as fuel and therefore, cancer cells can only survive on glucose. A ketogenic diet consists of almost zero carbohydrates, but lots of natural proteins and fats. "Natural" proteins are ones that are in their original form. On the other hand, "processed" meats, like cold cuts and hot dogs, are off-limits because often carbohydrates have been added to them. Similarly, "natural" fats are whole foods, like olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, and nuts. Stay away from "trans" fats, such as shortening or margarine, any oil that is hydrogenated. Recovery/?Print=true KETOGENIC DIET The main difference between a regular low carb diet plan and a ketogenic diet plan is the amount of carbohydrate and protein allowed on a daily basis: 138

139 A ketogenic diet plan requires tracking the carb amounts in the foods eaten and keeping carbohydrate intake between grams per day. The daily protein requirement will be moderate, and depends on height, gender and how much exercise is done. The balance of calories will be from fats. These ratios ensure that most people go into ketosis and stay there, which is the main objective of the ketogenic diet. The nutrient intake on a ketogenic diet typically works out to about 70-75% of calories from fat, 20-25% from protein, and 5-10% from carbohydrate on a daily basis. Since a ketogenic diet reduces hunger, most find they don't really need to get involved in calorie counting, unless one feels more comfortable tracking them. The key to understanding a ketogenic diet plan is to remember that one is swapping out the carbs in the diet with a higher fat and a moderate protein intake. Why high fat and moderate protein? Fats have no effect on blood sugar and insulin levels. Protein does effect both blood sugar and insulin, if large quantities are consumed. If you overeat protein, about 56% of any excess protein will be converted to glucose (sugar) in the body, and that extra glucose hanging around will increase insulin, and put the brakes on the body's ability to release and burn fatty acids (go into ketosis). COCONUT OIL IS ANTI-CANCER In 1987 Lim-Sylianco published a 50-year literature review showing the anti-cancer effects of coconut oil. In chemically induced cancers of the colon and breast, coconut oil was by far more protective than unsaturated oils. For example 32% of corn oil eaters got colon cancer whereas only 3% of coconut oil eaters got the cancer. Lita Lee, Ph.D - Reddy et al(1984) showed that chemically induced adenocarcinomas in the colon appeared 10-fold less in coconut oil treated animals. Cohen et al (1986) showed that such, in effect of coconut oil was also seen in breast cancer

140 ACIDITY AND ALKALINITY Virtually all degenerative diseases are associated with excess acidity in the body. This can be changed with diet. The metabolism of cancer cells has a very narrow ph tolerance for cellular proliferation, which is between 6.5 and 7.5. As such, if you can interfere with cancer cell metabolism by raising the internal cancer cell ph, you can theoretically stop cancer progression. Raising the ph of the body can be done, but that is not the same as raising the internal ph of cancer cells. The next step then is to use some nutritional mechanism to move the internal cancer cell ph from 6.5 to 7.5, to above 8, which effectively kills the cancer cell. Many have used the alkaline mineral cesium along with topical DMSO to carry the cesium through the skin into the body. The cesium is taken up by the cancer cells very effectively. This therapy works well, but it can deplete the body s potassium levels and thus must be replenished while monitored in the blood. Lack of potassium manifests as heart arrhythmia and leg cramps. Acidity and alkalinity is a measure of ph. The ph scale is logarithmic and goes from 0 (acid) to 14 (alkaline) with 7.0 being neutral. Being logarithmic means that each step is ten times the previous. To perform this simple test, all you need is a roll of testing ph paper. Urine ph The ph of the urine indicates how the body is working to maintain the proper ph of the blood. The urine reveals the alkaline building (anabolic) and acid tearing-down (catabolic) cycles. The urine ph is directly correlated to both tissue oxygen levels and soft tissue levels of alkalizing minerals. The ph of urine indicates the efforts of the body to regulate body ph balance through the buffer salts and hormones. Urine can provide a fairly accurate picture of body chemistry, because the kidneys filter out the buffer salts of ph regulation and provide values based on what the body is eliminating. The urine is an excellent indicator to determine if our diet is too rich in foods that make us acidic or alkaline. Generally speaking, fruits and vegetables are more alkaline forming, while meats, sugar, caffeine, beans, dairy, and grains are more acid forming, but there is some leeway in this hard rule due to individual body metabolic types. The principal acid generator is negative thoughts. The most important organic mineral used to neutralize acid ash is sodium. The second most important organic mineral for buffering acid ash is calcium. When body ph is too low (acidic), it can rob sodium from the gallbladder bile and 140

141 leave cholesterol in more of a solid form rather than liquid due to the absence of bile salts and thus gallstones can be formed. Urinary ph tends to be lower or more acidic in the morning and higher or more alkaline in the evening. The most accurate reading of how the body has handled the previous evening meal is urine ph recorded immediately upon awakening--after sleeping at least five hours. Hold about a 3 inch piece of ph paper in the urine stream and immediately compare to the color chart on the box to determine the ph. The optimal urine ph is between 6.8 and 7.2 on the ph scale. People that are consistently acidic do not optimally digest carbohydrates and fats. Saliva ph While generally more acidic than blood, salivary ph mirrors the blood (if not measured around meals) and is also a fairly good indicator of health. Optimal ph for saliva is above 7.2 ph. Optimal ph range for saliva is between 6.8 and 7.2. A reading consistently lower than 6.8 is indicative of possible insufficient alkaline reserves. After eating, the saliva ph should rise to 7.8 or higher. Unless this occurs, the body has alkaline mineral deficiencies (mainly calcium and magnesium) and will not assimilate food very well. The most accurate readings of saliva is recorded immediately upon awakening--after sleeping at least five hours and before brushing your teeth. For a midday saliva test, be sure not to eat, drink, or brush your teeth for one hour prior to the test. Swallow a couple of times to clear the mouth and stimulate new saliva, then discharge some saliva into a plastic spoon (It is recommended not to touch the ph paper to your tongue due to the chemicals in the paper.) Tear off a strip of ph paper, place into the saliva and compare the color of your immersed ph paper with the color chart provided on the ph testing roll. What Do the Values Mean? It is normal for your urine and saliva ph numbers to increase after you eat or drink and not stay static or decrease. The more acidic the food that is eaten, the more rapid the response of the alkaline reserve, and the higher the ph should be following a meal. Too acidic and need Alkaline buffers are okay alkaline diet Urine ph upon awakening Less than 6.8 Greater than 7.2 Saliva ph upon awakening Less than 6.8 Greater than

142 Urine ph Saliva ph Optimum - (Upon awakening) Between meals Following an alkaline meal or drink If the first urine upon awakening is lower than 6.8, then you are low on alkaline minerals and need a more alkaline diet. If the first urine upon awakening is greater than 7.2, then your levels of alkaline buffers are okay. Second urine of the day should be 7.2 or higher and if less than 6.8, then you are in acidosis. Alkaline diet The alkaline diet, which is primarily plant-based and avoids sugar, dairy, wheat and other high-gluten grains as well as an excess consumption of fruits, while emphasizing fresh vegetables and vegetable juices along with cruciferous vegetables and greens, changes the body's intracellular ph to come close to the ideal blood ph of 7.3/7.41. If nothing else, increase the amount of dark, leafy green vegetables, such as kale, spinach, Swiss chard, parsley, sprouts, collard greens, and mustard greens, just to name a few. Organic super green supplements that contain chlorella, spirulina, barley grass, and alfalfa grass, in particular, also help to alkalize the body. ANTI-CANCER STRATEGY 1. Eat organic 2. Adopt a ketogenic diet 3. Drink alkaline water (add CellFood for oxygen) and drink green tea 4. Get sunshine and take Vitamin D3 to normalize your levels 5. Take therapeutic levels of curcumin 6. Take coconut oil 142

143 7. Normalize your ratio of linoleic acid (omega 6) to alpha-linolenic acid (omega 3) by taking hemp seed oil (Hemp seed oil contains a ratio of 3:1 of LA (omega-6) to ALA (omega-3) 8. Get regular exercise and regular good sleep. 9. Reduce your exposure to food toxins, environmental toxins, and household toxins 10. Take a quality multi-vitamin mineral with adequate levels of selenium 11. Take extra Vitamin C and iodine 12. Progesterone cream if cancer is estrogen related 13. Do a cleanse and consider taking sodium chlorite or the herb bloodroot if cancer cells need to be removed faster 143

144 Conditions Biblical and traditional naturopathic practitioners work to support the body to bring forth its innate healing process. For the most part infirmities are from a combination of three elements: something is toxic, some pathogen needs to be killed or eliminated, and there have been chronic nutritional deficiencies. These factors can cause the body to become unbalanced (parts and systems not functioning and synergistically with each other). Add stress of some sort (emotional, spiritual, or physical), and a complex set of symptoms can arise. Because of the influence of the allopathic philosophy and the need to know what I have, symptoms are usually correlated to a disease label. This labeling, for the most part, only provides a categorizing of the symptoms. It does not speak to the cause(s) of the problem. Many times people want and do need symptom relief and it does have its place. Practitioners should remember that treating symptoms and labeled conditions will oftentimes not bring the body to heal itself. Please keep these thoughts in mind when supporting others to regain their health as they seek someone to relieve their symptoms or treat their labeled condition. Having said that, the following table of information is provided. Acid Reflux Acid reflux is almost always NOT a case of too much acid being produced, but rather too little. The condition is more commonly recognized by its symptom of heartburn - a burning sensation that radiates up from your stomach to your chest and throat. It s typically most bothersome at night, and tends to occur in connection with certain activities, such as after eating a heavy meal and lying down. Other symptoms include: hoarseness, a feeling that food is stuck in your throat, and tightness in your throat. Triggers are heavy protein meals, caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, and chocolate. Support can be found with a high quality unprocessed salt, not diluting the meal with excessive fluids, adding apple cider vinegar with meals or taking a hydrochloric acid supplement. Fasting and/or eating more raw foods and less refined cooked foods would also help solve the problem. Giving the digestion a rest along with some detoxification may also benefit. It can be commonly related to hiatal hernia There s a valve between your stomach and your small intestine called the pyloric valve. When the acid in your stomach refluxes over that valve, it causes symptoms very similar to those of acid reflux. Bacteria called helicobacter pylori causes a chronic low-level inflammation of the stomach lining, and is responsible, or at least a major factor, for producing many of the symptoms of acid reflux. Garlic or tea tree oil or olive leaf should an effective option. Supplemental digestive enzymes may alleviate heartburn by facilitating the digestion of food in the stomach that may be causing heartburn. The principal digestive enzymes used to facilitate digestion include: amylase, cellulose, lipase, and protease. Acne Acne occurs when the pores in the skin are blocked from oil, dead skin, and bacteria in the hair follicles. 144

145 Acne can be caused by environmental and genetic factors, but genetics seems to predominate. The role of hormones in the development of acne is apparent at puberty, when there is a surge in the production of male hormones, present in both males and females. Female-hormone estrogens have a beneficial effect on acne, which is why some girls get on birth control pills. But when a woman s estrogen levels decline as in just before the beginning of a menstrual cycle, acne may worsen. Tea Tree oil contains chemicals known as terpenoids which kill bacteria has been successful as a topical application. Zinc helps reduce inflammation; kills propionibacterium acnes, the main bacteria associated with acne, and improves the skin environment that makes it more hostile to this bacterium. Progesterone cream applied topically may alleviate acne in adult women by counteracting the excessive production of androgens that causes most cases of adult acne in women. Vitex and saw palmetto can alleviate hormone related acne. Burdock has been very useful in alleviating acne. Reduce foods high in animal fats, hormones, and iodine. Eliminate trans-fats. Overexposure to the sun can worsen acne. Addison s Addison's disease is a syndrome specifically related to inadequate secretion of corticosteroid hormones due to overworked, damaged or depleted adrenal glands. DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) (25 to 50 mg/day) may improve mood and other symptoms in adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal insufficiency may occasionally occur as a result of sodium deficiency - adrenal insufficiency patients often have salt cravings. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) may activate the adrenal glands and may revive exhausted adrenal glands. Vitamin C will support adrenal insufficiency. Adrenal glandular extract may counteract impairment of the adrenal glands. Licorice may enhance the function of the adrenal glands and is often employed by naturopaths to treat adrenal insufficiency. Adaptogen herbs such as ashwagandha are stress relievers and will thus support the adrenals. Eliminate sugar and caffeine and get sufficient sleep Allergies The top herbal anti-histamine is stinging nettle and it has been known to work effectively for 70% of those struggling with allergies. (300-1,800 mg per day) Quercetin stabilizes the cell membranes of mast cells. The strengthening of cell membranes of mast cells causes the mast cells to be less reactive to antigens (that are involved in allergies) and decreases the ease with which they release their stored histamine, and thus works as an antihistamine. Bromelain and digestive enzymes may help to dissolve and digest the foreign proteins (antigens) that are responsible for many allergies. DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) combined with pantothenic acid and adrenal glandular may help to prevent allergies by supporting and strengthening the adrenal glands. Vitamin C at 3000 to 5000 mg/day has a natural antihistamine effect. Other anti-inflammatory substances are fish oil and MSM. ALS - Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) was made famous by Lou Gehrig. ALS is a progressive degenerative disease of the motor system of the nervous system that quickly progresses and 145

146 destroys nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include clumsiness, tripping, slurred speech, and disabilities related to muscular function. The most common cause of death among ALS patients is respiratory complications and infection after the muscles that control breathing are affected. ALS patients generally have low brain glutathione levels. Valine levels are severely reduced in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid of ALS patients. Therefore branched-chained amino acids (particularly with leucine, isoleucine and valine) may result in improved muscle strength and maintenance of the ability to walk and has been effective in up to 85% of patients. Genetically controlled deficiencies in the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD) may cause ALS (due to the lack of SOD allowing free radicals to destroy Neurons). SOD activity in ALS patients is approximately 40% lower than that of normal, healthy humans. Creatine monohydrate is speculated to alleviate ALS and it is presently undergoing investigation for the treatment of this condition. Supplemental coenzyme Q10 may increase the survival time of ALS patients. Alpha Lipoic acid will cross the blood brain barrier and has anti-oxidant properties, works to protect nerves, and will help increase glutathione. Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) (1,500 3,000 mg per day) may be useful for the treatment of ALS (due to its ability to improve the function of motor nerves). Alzheimer's Alzheimer s disease is a progressive form of dementia that is characterized by two key abnormalities: amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques are clumps of a protein known as beta-amyloid found in the tissue between nerve cells in the brain. Neurofibrillary tangles are made up of a protein that becomes bundles of twisted filaments found within neurons. It is a manifestation of inflammation in the brain. Some have called Alzheimer s disease diabetes of the brain. During the course of Alzheimer s disease, glucose metabolism in the cerebellum is significantly reduced. Alzheimer s disease is associated with a significant level of damage to the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) content of the mitochondria. Excessive levels of aspartic acid and glutamate within the brain accelerate the development of Alzheimer s disease. Alzheimer s disease patients typically have 50% lower levels of DHEA compared to healthy people of the same age. Elevated homocysteine contributes to the onset and progression of Alzheimer s disease. Excessive cortisol levels increase the rate of neuron destruction in Alzheimer's disease. Aspartame can further exacerbate Alzheimer's disease. Excessive consumption of animal fats, trans-fatty acids, and arachidonic acid will increase the risk and worsen Alzheimer s disease. Mercury and aluminum accumulation in the brain may be one of the primary causes of Alzheimer s disease. Alzheimer's disease is strongly associated with lowered production/activity of acetylcholine - due to a deficiency in the enzyme choline acetylase. Regular exercise of the body and mental abilities is strongly encouraged for those with Alzheimer s disease. Significant consumption of blueberries, turmeric, pomegranates, and fish oil is strongly encouraged. 146

147 Niacinamide (2000 to 3000 mg) showed evidence of restoring memory in mice to the effect of being cured. Nattokinase removes amyloid-beta, which is an abnormal protein common in brains of Alzheimer s patients. Ginkgo Biloba maximizes blood flow to the brain and helps protect neurons from free radicals. Acetyl-l-carnitine at 2,000-3,000 mg per day improves brain cell communication and memory and retards the further progression of Alzheimer's disease. A low methionine diet has been shown to slow and even reverse early to moderate stage Alzheimer's disease in an animal model. Methionine is an essential amino acid that occurs in relatively high amounts in red meat, fish, eggs and other foods. Curcumin helps to prevent and treat Alzheimer s disease due to the ability to counteract the toxic effects of amyloid-beta protein. Lithium inhibits the progression of Alzheimer s disease by protecting neurons against cell death from amyloid-beta protein. Huperzine A (300 mcg per day) inhibits the acetylcholinesterase enzyme that degrades acetylcholine. Huperzine A has shown to be very effective for restoring memory loss for those with Alzheimer s. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) (coconut oil) improves cognitive function in Alzheimer s disease patients by substituting beta-hydroxybutyric acid for glucose as a source of energy to the brain. Coconut is showing great promise. Phosphatidylserine (PS) ( mg per day) may alleviate the symptoms of early Alzheimer s disease as it has been shown to restore the EEG patterns to normal and improve brain glucose metabolism. Coenzyme Q10 helps to prevent the neuron damage that leads to Alzheimer's. Vitamin B12 deficiency has been linked to the development of Alzheimer s and a deficiency mimics Alzheimer s disease. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) deficiency increases the risk of Alzheimer s disease and it increases the removal of amyloid-beta protein. Anemia Anemia is a blood condition that develops when you don t have enough healthy red blood cells to transport oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Anemia is associated with the following symptoms o Weakness and fatigue o Irritability o Shortness of breath o Headaches o Sore tongue and bleeding gums o Pallor o Nausea and loss of appetite o Faintness and dizziness o Confusion and dementia o Increased heart rate Two simple indicators of anemia are: 1.) After pressing on fingernail, redness should return within a second or two; 2.) Pull down lower eyelids to if they are pale. One cause of anemia is poor digestion of the stomach and poor absorption in the small bowel due to issues with the small intestines. Besides iron deficiency anemia, other forms of anemia include: pernicious anemia (vitamin B12 deficiency) and folic acid deficiency anemia 147

148 Anemia may occur as a result of Crohn s disease or ulcerative colitis Coffee inhibits iron absorption when taken with the iron. Caffeinated or decaf coffee, both reduce iron absorption when taken with a meal by 60% to 90%. Tea is a greater inhibitor of iron absorption than coffee (due to tannins), but only for non heme iron, which is iron not from red meat. Calcium taken with iron or high calcium foods in a meal (cheese and milk) can reduce the absorption of iron in the meal by about 50 to 60%. Chocolate also has tannins and can reduce iron absorption somewhat. Heme (deep red, ferrous component of hemoglobin) sources of iron, such as red meat, are absorbed and utilized the most effectively by the body. Vitamin A mobilizes iron from storage sites. Iron supplements are better absorbed if taken with vitamin C and on an empty stomach. Ferrous sulfate is not as absorbable as ferrous gluconate, iron citrate, fumarate, iron glycinate, iron gluconate, and iron picolinate. Chelated iron can be constipating. Yellow dock is a good herbal source of non-constipating iron. Angina Angina is the medical term for chest pain or discomfort due to the heart muscle not getting as much blood (hence as much oxygen) as it needs. Symptoms may be mild or severe chest pain or tightness in the chest. Pain may feel worse after exercise or a heavy meal. Improve blood supply to the heart with: o Magnesium aspartate or citrate ( mg - 3 times/day) o Hawthorn extract o Vitamin E (800 IU/day) o Arginine (6000 mg/day) increases nitric oxide, which relaxes the arteries o Fish oil (1 tbsp/day) o Clean out the arteries to the heart - chelation (EDTA, zeolites), nattokinase, serrapeptase (EDTA also increases nitric oxide, which relaxes the arteries) Improve energy metabolism within the heart with: o COQ10 (at least 150 mg/day) o Ribose 5000mg - 2 to 3 times per day o L-carnitine ((2-3 grams per day) Anxiety Disorders Anxiety disorders are illnesses that cause people to experience exaggerated fright or apprehension in response to external or internal stimuli or sometimes for no apparent reason. Basically it can be classified as an inappropriate stress response. Cause is usually exhausted adrenals coupled with a lack of GABA or perhaps along with a need for serotonin. Excessive caffeine, sugar, and stress are major contributors. Thyroid issues, low blood sugar, and allergies can be also be a contributor. Supporting the adrenal glands is very important Suggested supplements: magnesium, B-vitamins, pantothenic acid, GABA, 5HTP Reduce sugar and caffeine, which stress the adrenal glands Appendicitis Appendicitis is an ailment characterized by Inflammation of the appendix with primary symptom of excruciating abdominal pain. It usually begins with a sudden pain in the center of the abdomen, which gradually shifts to the lower right side. The pain may be preceded by general 148

149 discomfort in the abdomen, indigestion, diarrhea or constipation. There may be a mild fever varying from 100 to 102 F. Nausea is common, and vomiting may occur. If the inflammation continues to increase, the appendix may rupture and discharge its pus into the abdominal cavity. This may result in a serious state known as peritonitis. The temperature rises and the person becomes pale and cold. This condition may call for an urgent operation or death may follow. Appendicitis is caused by a toxic bowel condition. Protocol: coffee enema to reduce pain and help clean bowel, juiced carrots with raw garlic, tea made fenugreek seed, grape fruit seed extract (or other anti-parasite, anti-bacterial agent), castor oil pack on appendix before going to bed. Should see significant improvement by morning. Arteriosclerosis Atherosclerosis is characterized by hardening of the arteries in which plaque (raised patches) develop on the (normally thin) inner walls of the arteries and obstruct blood circulation. When the inner arterial wall is damaged (oxidation, heavy metals, bacteria, etc), oxidized lipids (cholesterol), white blood cells, and smooth muscle cells form a plaque deposit to cover the damage area. In time calcium accumulates on the deposit and forms a brittle cap. Risk factors are: o Blood clots o Homocysteine and heart disease o High blood pressure o High cholesterol o Inflammation Protocol should include anti-oxidants to reduce oxidation. Gravel root or hydrangea or EDTA to remove the calcium. Enzymes to eat away the fibrous clots such as nattokinase or serrapeptase Nutrition to restore endothelial tissue and lower the homocysteine levels such as: o Heavy metal chelators as needed o Folic acid, Vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 o EPA and DHA o L-arginine and vitamin K for the health of the endothelial tissue o Lipoic acid o Garlic o Ginkgo biloba o Green tea extract o Quercetin o Vitamin C and vitamin E Low testosterone levels have been directly associated with atherosclerosis. In the Rotterdam study of 4,807 subjects aged at least 55 over a 7-10 year period; vitamin K2 significantly reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease by 57% and severe aortic calcification by 52%. Arthritis Osteo Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and it is characterized by the degeneration, destruction, and erosion of the cartilage in the joints with sometimes bony outgrowths at the edges of the Joints. Osteoarthritis is more prevalent in weight-bearing joints such as those of the knees, hip, ankles, elbows, wrists, spine, and shoulder. Glucosamine sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride and N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG) are presently the natural treatments of choice for osteoarthritis. Glucosamine is the body s primary tool for regenerating cartilage. It has been extensively studied in over 300 clinical trials. 149

150 The recommended glucosamine sulfate or glucosamine hydrochloride dosage for the alleviation/cure of osteoarthritis is 500-1,000 mg three times per day. Therapeutic effect of glucosamine is not immediate. It usually takes from 1 to 8 weeks to appear. Chondroitin sulfate has the special property of attracting and holding water. This is important, as water gives cartilage its resiliency and cushioning effect. Take 600 mg of chondroitin sulfate, with meals. Hyaluronic acid content of synovial fluid is reduced in osteoarthritis. Enzymes such as bromelain, chymotrypsin, papain, and trypsin (especially when used in combination) minimize the pain and inflammation. Capsaicin (0.025% cream applied topically 2-4 times/day) may alleviate the pain Strontium may be an effective treatment for osteoarthritis (due to its ability to stimulate the production of cartilage). Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) applied topically may alleviate the pain. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) (2,000 to 6,000 mg/day) relieves inflammation and pain and improves the integrity of cartilage. Turmeric (curcuma longa) has perhaps the strongest anti-inflammatory activity of all of the medicinal herbs. Take mg once or twice a day. Take high doses of fish oil daily to address inflammation - two 1,000 mg capsules of fish oil daily. Asthma Asthma is a type of respiratory ailment that is characterized by spasms of the bronchial tubes, coughing, and excessive excretion of mucous that can lead to difficulty breathing. Asthma is considered to be an inflammatory condition. Most long-term respiratory problems are associated with undetected food allergies. The primary culprits are dairy products, wheat, eggs, citrus, corn, and peanut butter. N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that liquefies mucus in air passages - recommend 500 mg daily. Take magnesium - When your body has a magnesium deficiency, your cells release more histamine, which causes constriction of the bronchioles and triggers an asthma attack. Omega-3 fatty acids play a role in the prevention of asthma by reducing the tendency toward inflammation. Butterbur at 50 mg daily was shown to reduce asthmatic symptoms. Quercetin has anti-allergenic and anti-histamine properties 100 mg 3 x a day. Athlete s foot liquid grapefruit seed extract, Cajeput Oil, Lapacho, Sanguinaria, Thyme, Usnea Bad Breath / Halitosis Causes of bad breath could be constipation, dental problems, gum disease, liver issues, diabetes, kidney issues, and ileocecal valve stuck open. Try chlorophyll, or activated charcoal. Use digestive enzymes and probiotics. Move and clean the bowels. Deodorize your intestinal tract with ginger, coriander, cumin, and/or fennel. Liver cleanse formula and/or do a coffee enema. Bed wetting - St. John s Wort with Plantain Bell s Palsy Bell s palsy is a condition in which one half of the face abruptly becomes paralyzed due to temporary paralysis of the facial nerve. This sudden paralysis may be preceded by pain behind one ear for a day or two, but it usually occurs quickly. The condition is associated with presence 150

151 of the herpes simplex virus 1. Topical DMSO mixed with St. John s Wort extract, and with methylcobalamin (B12) (dissolve a tablet in the mix). Methylcobalamin (B12) sublingual lozenges 5 mg tablets - Take one every hour. A suggested dose is 40 to 80 mg daily until symptoms subside. Take an anti-viral such olive leaf extract or oregano oil. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (see Prostate Enlargement) Bladder Infection Most bladder infections are bacterial E coli. D-mannose at 500 mg 4 times a day. Prevents bacteria from attaching to the wall of the bladder or urinary tract. Drink plenty of cranberry juice (contains D-mannose) to keep flushing the bladder Uva Ursi kills bacteria in the urine. Other anti-bacterial agents are oregano oil, colloidal silver, and olive leaf extract. Bleeding / Bruising Under the Skin Vitamin C foods with bioflavonoids Eat fermented foods 3000 mg of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) Vitamin K2 at 1,000 mcg a day Bilberry - The usual therapeutic dosage of Bilberry tincture/liquid extract is 2-4 ml per day. The usual therapeutic dosage of Bilberry fresh berries is grams per day. Blood Clots, dissolves - Capsicum, Chestnut Leaf, Horse Chestnut, and nattokinase or serrapeptase Blood Sugar Control Exercise 6 days a week Low glycemic load diet or a low glycemic index diet Coconut oil Curcumin Plenty of fiber Magnesium is involved with insulin production and utilization 500 mg daily magnesium citrate or aspartate Essential fatty acids 1000 mg daily Chromium: 400 to 800 mcg daily Alpha lipoic acid (ALA): mg daily Gymnema Sylvestre improves insulin production and lowers blood sugar levels mg daily Cinnamon extract 500 mg daily Vanadyl sulfate: 100 mg daily Apple cider vinegar consumed during a meal inhibits increases in blood sugar. Blood thinner - In place of Coumadin, take 2 to 3 tablespoonfuls of cod liver oil daily and add 800 Vitamin E to keep the oil from turning rancid in blood stream. (Per Jonathan Wright, MD) Boils are a type of pus-filled abscess that initially affect the hair follicles of the epidermis of the skin. The infection then spreads to the skin s deeper layers. The pus in boils consists of dead white blood cells and detrimental bacteria (usually Staphylococcus aureus). Boils occur most often on the scalp, buttocks, face or underarms. They are tender, red and painful and generally occur suddenly. Silver (applied topically) may alleviate boils (by destroying Staphylococcus aureus, the detrimental bacteria that causes boils). (Smart Silver from Desbio is a structured silver that will kill staphylococcus aureus.) Chaparral and/or Tea Tree Oil (applied topically) may accelerate the healing of boils. 151

152 Recurring boils may occur as a result of zinc deficiency and people who suffer from recurrent boils may respond to mg supplemental zinc per day. This level of zinc supplementation may also prevent future occurrences of boils. Bone spurs, dissolve gravel root or hydrangea root or stoneroot Bronchitis Bronchitis refers to an infection in the bronchi, the tubes that connect the trachea (windpipe) to the lungs. Use expectorants such as coltsfoot, thyme essential oil, or astragalus (also boosts immune system) N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that liquefies mucus in air passages - recommend 500 mg daily. The herbs mullein and slippery elm promote mucus discharge and has a soothing effect on the respiratory tract. Bug bites Plantain topically to draw out poisons Cajeput oil or tea tree oil topically as an anti-septic Aloe vera topically to sooth and heal Burns Aloe Vera to soothe and heal Honey as anti-biotic and to promote healing Vitamin E to stop scarring Emu Oil (applied topically) will accelerate the healing of (first and second degree) burns and will minimize the pain (usually within 2-3 minutes of application), scarring and blistering associated with burns is also minimized. Lavender essential oil (25 drops) mixed with witch hazel (2 oz) mixed with water (2 oz) Canker Sores Canker Sores or mouth ulcers are small, white or yellow-white, superficial painful ulcers that involve the inflammation or destruction of the mucous membranes that line the mouth. They usually afflict the movable parts of the inside of the mouth (the tongue or the lining of the inner cheeks or lips). Mouth ulcers are usually painful for three to four days and symptoms generally diminish in seven to ten days. Mouth ulcers are more common in women than in men. Take zinc and B vitamins and lysine to help prevent canker sores. At first sign, place an activated charcoal tablet on the sore till the sensation goes away (about 15 to 20 minutes). It stops the virus and stops the eruption. Deglycyrrhizinated (DGL) licorice - two tablets, chewed about 20 minutes before meals three times a day; it must be mixed with saliva. Licorice has anti-viral properties and healing properties. Bee propolis applied directly may stop eruption and will heal the outbreak. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of the median nerve, which runs through a small channel in the wrist on the palm side. Underlying conditions usually associated with CTS are tendonitis, diabetes, and pregnancy. Tests that may be used to confirm condition is Phalen's test, or wrist flexion, which checks for pain, tingling, or numbness by pressing the back of hands together to flex wrists inward. Vitamin B6-200 milligrams (mg) daily. Caution should be exercised, however, because high doses of vitamin B6 have been linked to neuropathy. Serrapeptase enzyme - 3 tablets twice daily on empty stomach Omega-3 fatty acids mg daily, containing at least 1400 mg EPA and 1000 mg DHA 152

153 Ginger extract mg daily for inflammation Curcumin to 1600 mg daily for inflammation Cartilage - Rebuilding Unlike other types of connective tissue, cartilage has no blood vessels or nerves. At the ends of bones, cartilage forms pads that help to reduce the friction between the bones to prevent bones rubbing against each other and act as shock absorbers. Cartilage is also a component of the flexible part of the external portion of the ear, and is a major component of the intervertebral disks that protect the backbone. Water comprises 65% to 85% of cartilage.... Chondroitin Sulfate is the principal component of cartilage, comprising 92% of the proteoglycans content of normal cartilage. It has been used to maintain resiliency and to rebuild damaged cartilage. Glucosamine (in the form of glucosamine sulfate) is the main constituent of chondroitin sulfate which in turn is the primary non-water component of cartilage. Consuming glucosamine sulfate has been used to repair damaged cartilage. Glucosamine "instruct" chondroclasts to cease destroying cartilage while at the same time reactivating chondroblasts to recommence "building" new cartilage. The normal amount of glucosamine sulfate is about 1500 mg/day. Type II collagen works well to rebuild cartilage Human Growth Hormone (HGH) injected directly into the damaged joint may significantly regenerate the cartilage by up to 90%. Manganese is essential for the proper formation of cartilage as it is a cofactor for the production of the proteoglycans. Supplemental silicon increases the collagen content of cartilage. Strontium stimulates the production of cartilage. Sulfur is involved in the integrity of cartilage. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) not only reduces inflammation, but enhances the health of the body s cartilage by contributing its sulfur content to cartilage. Vitamin D is required for the optimal function and production of cartilage. The herbs Solomon s Seal along with Horsetail (silica content) As long as there is cartilage to build on, adding cartilage can be more easily accomplished. Building new cartilage where none exists can be accomplished, but one doesn t need to over exercise or overuse the joint to scrape off the new growth. Suggest glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, Solomon s Seal, Horsetail, Vitamin D, strontium, and manganese to build new cartilage in situations where bone is rubbing on bone. It helps to stay hydrated and refrain from overuse of the joint. Cataracts Studies show that a topical, time-release form of carnosine n-acetyl-carnosine can stop the glycation process in the lens, gradually reversing existing cataracts and preventing new ones from developing. Cataract patients who received a 1 percent solution of n-acetyl-carnosine eye drops found that after six months 90 percent of the treated eyes showed significant improvement in overall visual acuity. L-carnosine eye drops - 1 to 2 drops in each eye one to four times daily to remove cataracts. Celiac Disease Celiac disease is a digestive system ailment in which the jejunum of the small Intestine fails to absorb and digest food. It is characterized by lesions that vary from partial to total atrophy of the small intestine s vili that is affected by an allergic reaction to gluten. It is estimated to affect up to about 4% of the population. Avoid consumption of barley, oats, rye, and wheat. 153

154 Look for underlying pathogen. Deal with the inflammation and restore tissue with glutamine and aloe vera. Support the nutritional deficiencies. Cholesterol As we get older and thus have lower hormone levels, cholesterol goes up. Raising our hormone levels will lower cholesterol. Hypothyroidism, toxic liver, poor diet (sugar, hydrogenated oils, foods fried in vegetable oils), diabetes, and a need for anti-oxidants due to oxidation also raise cholesterol levels. 70% of the body s cholesterol is produced by the liver. 25% of the body s cholesterol is in the brain. Policosanol has been shown to normalize cholesterol as well or better than cholesterol-lowering drugs, without side effects such as liver dysfunction and muscle atrophy. High intake of soluble fiber is a very effective way of lowering serum cholesterol. The soluble fiber and omega-3 oils in flaxseed can dramatically lower cholesterol. Grind up a quarter cup once a day. Niacin (vitamin B3) improves cholesterol profiles when given in doses well above the vitamin requirement. Nicotinic acid lowers total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, and triglyceride levels, while raising HDL-cholesterol levels (start with 500 mg three times a day with meals). If you have a peptic ulcer, gout, or liver disease, use niacin with caution. Artichoke leaf extract reduces elevated cholesterol levels mg 3 times a day. Garlic extract made by Kyolic caused a 12 to 31% reduction in cholesterol levels in the majority of test subjects after 6 months. A study of 125 patients receiving gugulipid showed an 11% decrease in total serum cholesterol, a drop of 16.8% in triglycerides, and a 60% increase in HDL cholesterol within 3 to 4 weeks (140 mg - 1 to 2 times a day). Fish oil has been shown to reduce high levels of triglycerides by an average of 35%. Fish oil does not appear to reduce overall cholesterol to a great extent, but it does raise HDL (good cholesterol). Chromium (1-2 mg per day) may reduce total serum cholesterol levels by 15% Cinnamon has been shown to lower triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and raises HDL cholesterol. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS is defined as a set of symptoms that include prolonged, overwhelming fatigue not resolved with rest. Other symptoms associated with CFS include mood swings, muscle spasms, pain, headache, sleep disturbances, and loss of appetite. It is a cousin to fibromyalgia. The hypothalamus is exhausted and it controls sleep, hormonal function, and the autonomic nervous system. An underlying virus is usually at work; or perhaps bacteria. Try olive leaf or oregano oil. Best approach seems to deal with any existing pathogen, boost energy levels, support the immune function, and improve restorative sleep. Cat s claw has been very helpful for CFS, as it boosts the immune system. Astragalus is also a great immune booster. Naturally the adrenals will need supporting (not stimulated), as well as the thyroid due to increased levels of reverse T3. Improve sleep by boosting serotonin levels with 5HTP or tryptophan. If it causes a reverse reaction when taken at bedtime; then take with evening meal. 5HTP and DL-phenylalanine to lessen pain. Sugar and caffeine need to be eliminated. Magnesium to help the muscles relax. 154

155 B Vitamins, vitamin C, manganese, and magnesium aspartate for energy production. CoQ10 can also help with energy levels. Ribose (3000 mg/day) or PXP royal by Enzacta to restore energy. Circulation Arginine improves blood circulation by stimulating the production of nitric oxide. EDTA - the synthetic amino acids used in chelation therapy improves blood circulation by removing calcium plaque and also through increased nitric oxide (dilates the arteries). Vitamin E improves blood circulation by thinning the blood. Fish oil and cod liver improve circulation by reducing the blood s ability to clump. Bilberry improves blood circulation to the hands, feet, brain and heart. Butcher's Broom improves blood circulation to the legs. Cayenne or capsicum improves circulation by dilating the blood vessels. Ginger stimulates blood circulation within the digestive system and pelvic area. Ginkgo Biloba improves blood circulation to the brain. Gota kola improves blood circulation to the head. Hawthorn improves blood circulation to the heart. Garlic improves blood circulation by thinning the blood. Proteolytic enzymes improve circulation by removing plaque from the arteries. Nattokinase will thin the blood somewhat, but serrapeptase doesn t. In place of Coumadin: use 2 to 3 tablespoons of cod liver oil daily and add 800 IU vitamin E to help thin the blood and keep the oil from turning rancid in the blood stream. Coumadin (Warfarin) works by counteracting vitamin K in the plasma of the blood. Plavix works on the platelets in the blood stream by causing them to be less "sticky". Those on Plavix should be careful of rebound when coming off of it without a sufficient substitute. Cirrhosis Cirrhosis is a liver disease that involves fibrosis where normal soft tissue is replaced by hard, fibrous tissue. Much of the liver damage associated with cirrhosis is actually caused by free radicals from lipid peroxidation and oxidative stress that arises from glutathione depletion in the liver. Rule out a pathogen(s) in the liver Lipoic acid (very important) Silymarin mg/day (very important) Selenium (very important) Phosphatidyl choline L-glutathione SAMe Vitamin B complex Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) mg/day Vitamin E IU/day Omega 3 fish oil Curcumin Coffee enemas Cold Sores - Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 is a type of herpes simplex virus characterized by cold sores, usually on and around the lips. HSV1 is characterized by the appearance of single or multiple clusters of small blisters filled with a clear fluid on a reddened base. These blisters eventually burst, leaving small, painful ulcers that heal in days. This phase of the virus is known as an outbreak. The virus then reverts to its' dormant state. Although HSV1 usually affects the lips, it can also infect 155

156 the genitals (in which case it can be confused with Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2). Up to 90% of the world's population is infected with HSV1. Approximately 40% of persons who have had one HSV1 outbreak never suffer from a second outbreak, while others may suffer from up to six attacks per year for several years following the first outbreak. HSV1which is dormant in most people, but activated in some by stress, physical irritation, and the sun. Lysine inhibits the virus ability to replicate itself. In a study of 1,543 people with herpes simplex, 88 percent of the people who took an average of 936 mg a day of supplemental lysine showed an improvement in symptoms, with lesions healing in an average of five days or less in 83 percent of those people. If you are prone to cold sores, take a preventive daily dose of 750 to 1,500 mg of lysine a day, and increase it to 3,000 mg when an outbreak is imminent. Topical bee propolis (tincture applied topically twice per day or ointment applied topically four times per day to the affected area) may effectively treat the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1. Propolis may alleviate the Pain associated with Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 in almost 100% of cases. Propolis may alleviate the Itching associated with Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 in up to 85% of cases. Propolis may accelerate the healing of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 lesions and may prevent their recurrence in 90% of cases If a cold sore has already erupted, try the garlic/vitamin E paste Lysine inhibits the virus ability to replicate itself. Zinc to accelerate healing Fight it with Cat s Claw, olive leaf, or oregano oil Colds / Flu Vitamin D as a preventative and to stop an ensuing one (therapeutic dose may be as much as 50,000 IU on a temporary basis) Vitamin C, zinc lozenges Herbal immune boosters Echinacea, Astragalus Anti-virals olive leaf, oregano, Elderberry, garlic, sodium chlorite, etc. Constipation Magnesium deficiency is the number one cause of constipation Sluggish thyroids, exhausted adrenals, excessive red meat, iron supplementation, and yeast candida can cause or contribute to constipation. Increase intake of fiber-rich plant foods. Probiotics to help restore proper bowel flora Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. Habitual exercise will help keep things regular. Vitamin C intake of 5,000 10,000 mg/day. Large doses of vitamin C are an approved laxative in Germany. Osmotic type laxatives (increases water) such as sorbitol and magnesium citrate Magnesium oxide will help loosen things up. Psyllium is a bulk-forming laxative that is high in fiber. Herbal formulas such as cascara sagrada, turkey rhubarb, and aloe will stimulate the bowel to move. The kitchen solution consists of applesauce, wheat bran, and prune juice. Safe for daily use. Another home remedy is 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1 rounded tablespoon of ground flax seeds mixed with very warm water. Castor oil serves as a laxative, though not for continual use. Flaxseed oil 1 to 2 tablespoons helps lubricates things. Dandelion root stimulates bile flow, which moves bowels. 156

157 Milk and molasses enema will move most anyone. Constipation can also be caused by medications such as antibiotics, antihistamines, antacids, drugs for high blood pressure, cholesterol-lowering drugs, antidepressants, tranquilizers, and painkillers. COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) / Emphysema The umbrella of COPD encompasses emphysema, in which the alveoli in the lungs are destroyed and enlarged; and chronic bronchitis, which is permanent inflammation of airways accompanied by a chronic cough. The major cause of COPD is cigarette smoking. N-acetylcysteine 200 1,800 mg per day to liquefy the mucous Fish oil or cod liver oil for the anti-inflammatory effect Herbal formula called LNG-M from Good Herbs that consists of red sage root, forsythia, spirulina, Indian tobacco, and scullcap. Serrapeptase or nattokinase to remove scar tissue Cortisol Excess Substances that may minimize the toxic effects of excessive cortisol. o Acetyl-L-Carnitine (stress induced) o DHEA (maintain balance) o Melatonin o Pregnenolone o Testosterone o Conjugated linoleic acid (catabolic effects) o Phosphatidylserine o Vitamin C (toxic effect & also lowers) o Ashwagandha o Ginkgo Biloba o Horny Goat Weed o Korean Ginseng o Magnolia bark o St. John s Wort (when stress induced) Cough Licorice (500 mg or as a tea or chewable tablets) reduces coughing, is soothing, and is an expectorant Cherry bark (500 mg or as a tincture) N-acetylcysteine (NAC) to liquefy the mucous (1000 mg/day) Echinacea with goldenseal for immune support Astragalus for acute bronchitis Lavender oil massaged into the throat area Mullein is good for the lungs and is also soothing Make onion syrup by covering several large chopped onions with liquid honey. Low heat under 130 degrees F. for several hours and strain. Hold the syrup in the mouth and let it trickle down. You can also add horehound or wild cherry bark to the honey and onions. Crohn's Disease / Colitis / Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome Crohn s disease and ulcerative colitis and IBS are in the same family of conditions marked by inflammation and ulcerations in the intestinal tract. Cause is commonly a pathogen and usually more than one type (parasites, bacteria, yeast/candida, and viruses). Consider oregano oil, olive leaf, grapefruit seed extract and others to deal with the pathogens. Go slow or there will be too much inflammation. Food allergies are very common. Common allergens include gluten (a protein in wheat, oats, 157

158 barley, and rye), milk, citrus, and tomatoes. Processed foods, food additives, and preservatives should be avoided as well. Avoiding grains, potatoes, soy, milk, and all forms of sugar - as well as allergens unique to each individual - stops further damage to the gut and gives it a chance to heal. Stay away from caffeine, spicy foods, fried foods, and alcohol. Be careful with red meat. Probiotics such as L. acidophilus and B. bifidum to help replace the beneficial bacteria. Take fish oil and curcumin for their anti-inflammatory effect. Glutamine to restore the lining the intestinal tract. Also aloe vera, marshmallow, and slippery elm have been known to help the tissue to heal. Ginger to reduce gas and bloating. Peppermint oil to reduce gas and cramping. Croup - Catnip or peppermint tea with a few drops of tincture of lobelia. Dandruff is a condition in which the scalp is covered in flakes of dead skin. Dandruff occurs as the result of acceleration of the normal growing process of the skin cells of the scalp. Normally, all of the (dead) skin cell cells of the scalp are shed every 24 days. With dandruff, this process is accelerated. In a normal scalp, the process of sloughing off old Cells and the production of their replacements is orderly and complete. With dandruff, disorder occurs and often the sloughed cells are not dead before they are shed. Get sufficient essential fatty acids Selenium deficiency could be a cause take 200 mcg/day Zinc at 15 to 30mg/day will usually clear it up (Zinc Pyrithione shampoo is effective) Getting sufficient B vitamins and/or sulfur may clear it up. Add to your 8 oz bottle of shampoo 10 drops of tea tree oil (antiseptic), and 4 drops of clary sage oil (regulates oil production) Depression Check thyroid and iodine levels Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly DHA 5HTP or tryptophan to increase serotonin (also promotes better sleeping) Tyrosine to increase norepinephrine Multi-vitamin with good amounts of B complex and magnesium SAMe St John s Wort Depression is a common symptom of anti-depressants. Can also be due to too low cholesterol levels from taking statin drugs. Diverticulitis Diverticulitis is inflammation of a diverticula (sac or pouch formed in weak parts of the colon) caused by infection of existing diverticula. Constipation may occur as a result of diverticulitis. Diarrhea may occur as a result of diverticulitis. Psyllium seeds (husks) may help to prevent diverticulitis and may help to reduce the discomfort associated with diverticulitis. Cat s Claw reputedly alleviates diverticulitis. Peppermint reputedly alleviates the symptoms of diverticulitis. Slippery elm soothes an irritated and inflamed bowel. MSM helps restore elasticity to the intestinal wall. Colonics to clean out the colon can be helpful, but getting plenty of fiber is the issue. The muscles of the colon need bulk to press against to prevent diverticulitis. Dry Eyes 158

159 Caused by a deficiency of essential fatty acids, particularly omega 3s take 2 grams/day Dry eyes patients have lower carnitine levels in their tears. Dry skin is a condition characterized by lack of water/sebum in the stratum corneum layer of the skin. 77% of people over the age of 64 experience dry skin. Dry skin is a usual condition of low thyroid function (get plenty of iodine) Optimal DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) levels may help to prevent dry skin (due to DHEA s involvement in the production of sebum by the sebaceous glands). supplemental dhea (administered either orally or applied topically via dhea skin cream) may alleviate dry skin where dry skin is caused by depleted DHEA levels). Sufficient levels of essential fatty acids may alleviate dry skin. Rough or cracked skin may occur as a result of zinc deficiency. Topically use coconut oil or emu oil. Ear Infection / Earache Garlic or mullein extract 1 to 2 drops in ear 2 x a day Garlic oil on a cotton ball and place the cotton just inside the ear (pure garlic oil can burn). Dilute garlic oil with olive oil for direct application. Colloidal silver drops into the ear Tea tree oil or cajeput oil drops into the ear Hydrogen peroxide drops at 3% solution into the ear If an infant develops an ear infection a simple solution is to put a few drops of breast milk in the ear canal every few hours. This usually works to clear up the infection within 24 to 48 hours. Eczema / Dermatitis Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a very common, painful skin condition, which usually comes on in early childhood and is marked by itchy, inflamed rashes. Food allergies are a common cause. Not having the enzyme to be able to convert linoleic acid to gamma-linolenic acid and alpha-linolenic acid to stearidonic acid may be the principle cause. Colon, liver, and kidney issues (organs of elimination) are many times behind skin issues. Eliminate food allergens. The primary culprits are dairy products, wheat, eggs, citrus, corn, and peanut butter. Alpha-linolenic acid found in flax seed oil may alleviate eczema in approximately 50% of the time. Essential fatty acids DHA and EPA (fish oil), and GLA (borage seed oil or evening primrose oil) Probiotics may eliminate dermatitis Selenium at 200 mg/day (most children afflicted with eczema have low glutathione peroxidase levels - selenium helps to restore those levels) Vitamin B12 (1000 mcg/day) may alleviate approximately 60% of cases. Vitamin B12 cream applied topically may also be an effective treatment. Vitamin E and zinc to support skin health Nettle can be safely used with children. Burdock root, which is a blood cleanser, has history of being effective. Topical Neem oil has also been used successfully. Emphysema (see COPD) Endometriosis Endometriosis is growth of endometrial tissue outside the uterus, which can cause lower abdominal pain, infertility, and gastrointestinal complications. About half of those with this condition also have candidiasis. Some believe that those with endometriosis are allergic to their own hormones. Anti-fungus agents such as grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf, oregano oil, Pau d Arco, garlic, etc. 159

160 (add probiotics) Natural progesterone - ¼ to ½ teaspoon of cream twice daily on days 15 to 28 of the menstrual cycle Chaste berry (vitex) balances estrogen/progesterone ratio, 200 mg/day. (do not take if on birth control pills) Indole-3-carbinol to assist liver in estrogen detoxification Omega 3 essential fatty acids to decrease inflammation Serrapeptase or nattokinase to remove scar tissue Epilepsy Epilepsy is characterized by recurring seizures caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Seizure triggers include low blood sugar, dehydration, fatigue, lack of sleep, stress, environmental allergies, aspartame, extreme heat or cold, depression, and flashing or flickering lights. Check for celiac sensitivity. Diet - low carbohydrate, high in good fats (except GLA), low protein, and lots of vegetables Remove the stimulants (caffeine) and initiate a detoxification program Magnesium, vitamin B6 and dimethylglycine all have strong anti-seizure properties Omega-3 fatty acids 2100 mg EPA and 1500 mg DHA daily L- Taurine gm/day (does not easily cross the blood brain barrier) L- Carnitine -1 to 3 gm/day for adults Adequate brain gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels are required to prevent the seizures associated with epilepsy. Herbs that have been helpful are passion flower, skullcap, hyssop, ladies slipper, and blue vervain. Erectile Dysfunction / Impotence L-arginine: 1000 mg two to three x a day (best absorbed on an empty stomach). Increases nitric oxide which is a vasodilator. Ginkgo Biloba at120 mg day will also improve circulation. Boost the active testosterone levels with zinc (30-50mg/day), progesterone cream applied to scrotum, tribulus terrestris, velvet deer antler, horny goat weed, suma, DHEA, and Korean ginseng. Increasing dopamine levels will increase testosterone. Increase dopamine levels with tyrosine, or extract of broad beans (fava beans) or buy fava beans at grocery store. L-carnitine - 2,000 4,000 mg daily, in two studies showed more effective than testosterone replacement Yohimbe increases blood flow to the penis, allowing more rapid and rigid erections. It also increases libido and sexual intensity in men. (Yohimbe can cause nervousness and may raise blood pressure.) Many have found the use of Maca root to restore sexual function, as it balances hormone levels. Sometimes just relieving stress and supporting the adrenals is all that is needed. Estrogen Dominance Progesterone opposes estradiol (and thereby inhibits the negative effects associated with excessive estradiol). Magnesium helsp to reduce elevated Estradiol levels. D-Glucaric Acid ( mg per day) will lower elevated estradiol levels. Aromatase Inhibitors lower estradiol levels (zinc) Phytoestrogens (Black Cohosh) bind to estradiol receptor sites on the body's cells, thereby 160

161 blocking estradiol reception. Vitamin B6 helps to reduce elevated estradiol levels. Vitamin E helps to reduce elevated estradiol levels. Fatty Liver Disease The most common cause of fatty liver disease is alcohol consumption, but it can be caused by obesity, diabetes, and elevated triglyceride levels. If associated with obesity, it is sometimes called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, or NAFLD. Up to 1/3 of patients with NAFLD also have type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol levels, or both. Fatty liver disease is characterized by inflammation within the liver, which may hasten its progression to cirrhosis. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease affects at least 20% of the general population, 50% of diabetics and 50% of obese persons. Excessive consumption of carbohydrates promotes NAFLD. The best treatment for preventing and treating NAFLD is weight loss and to cut down on sugar intake. Carnitine may alleviate and prevent fatty liver (1000mg - 2 to 3 times a day). Some evidence suggests that carnitine deficiency within the liver may be the underlying cause of fatty liver. Liver support o Lipoic acid o Milk thistle o Selenium o Omega 3 fish oil o Curcumin Fibrocystic Breasts / Breast Tenderness Fibrocystic breast disease is a mildly uncomfortable to severely painful, benign tumor of fibrous connective tissues of the breasts. It is the most prevalent ailment of the breasts, affecting approximately 30% of pre-menopausal women. Fibrocystic breasts may occur as a result of being estrogen dominant. Caffeine usually exacerbates the condition. Progesterone cream applied topically to the breasts may prevent and alleviate fibrocystic breasts. Some have observed that the breasts return to normal within three or four cycles after topical application of progesterone. It may occur as a result of iodine deficiency. Vitamin E at 600 IU/day has alleviated fibrocystic breast disease in approximately 70% of cases. Evening primrose oil at 3,000 mg/day for at least 6 months has alleviated approximately 45% of cases of fibrocystic breast cases. Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a relatively common disorder characterized by widespread muscle pain, stiffness, and disturbed sleep. It is similar to chronic fatigue syndrome in that the primary symptom of fatigue is replaced with musculoskeletal pain in fibromyalgia. Many people with fibromyalgia report that their symptoms began after they had experienced trauma, particularly injuries to the head and neck. It is a cousin to chronic fatigue syndrome. Clinical professionals have found the hypothalamus to be exhausted and the hypothalamus controls sleep, hormonal function, and the autonomic nervous system. Approximately 90% of fibromyalgia patients are women and 85% are young women. Fibromyalgia is more of a nerve and sleep disorder than a muscle disorder. A virus along with a sleep disorder is the commonly suspected cause. Try olive leaf extract or oregano oil to combat the virus. Adrenals will need supporting and most likely the thyroid. 161

162 Ribose (3000 mg/day) or PXP royal by Enzacta to restore energy. Magnesium with malic acid, MSM, 5HTP, DMSO, and DL phenylalanine to relieve the muscle pain. Improve sleep with various alternatives. May have to alternate between 5HTP, melatonin, valerian root, and passion flower. Sugar and caffeine need to be eliminated. Support nerves with B vitamins and omega 3 oils. Floaters - Simply take 8 oz distilled water and place 1 teaspoon MSM in this, along with 1-2 drops of 35% H2O2 for purification purposes. Be sure the dropper bottle you are using is sterile. You could purchase Visine or other drops and empty it out for a good dropper bottle. Flu (see Colds) Fungal Nail Infection Usually need to deal with the fungus in the body while dealing with it on the nail Topical applications include: o Grapefruit seed extract o Cajeput oil o DMSO with potassium iodide: mix equal parts of each and rub on and under the nail a couple of times a day. Gallstones / Gallbladder Problems Eighty percent of gallstones are cholesterol and 20% are calcium salts with the pigment bilirubin. Turkey rhubarb strengthens the gallbladder and works to prevent gallstones. Dandelion root, globe artichoke, milk thistle, and turmeric improve bile flow. Dissolve stones with gravel root or stoneroot (dissolves calcium) while taking lecithin to emulsify the cholesterol. Glaucoma Glaucoma is characterized by an increase of pressure of the fluid within the eyeball. With chronic glaucoma, actual vision loss is gradual and there s time to take protective measures. Vitamin C may reduce intraocular pressure by 21% - 84%. Long-term use of vitamin C is safe and therapeutic doses have been successful to restore almost-normal pressure levels. As little as 2000 mg/day may be enough, but others have needed up 35 gm/day intravenously. Magnesium is needed to relax blood vessel walls. Fish oil or cod liver oil may provide a significant drop in intraocular pressure. When coleus forskohlii eye drops were applied directly to the eye, it was shown, in clinical studies involving both animals and humans, to reduce intraocular pressure. Vitamin E and CoQ10 together can help lower the intraocular pressure. Mix equal parts of cassia tora seed extract, bilberry extract, and eyebright extract and apply topically around the eyes. Gout Gout is a painful condition characterized by the deposition of uric acid crystals in the joints, which causes joint inflammation. Gout is observed as a result of either an inability to excrete uric acid in the kidney or increased production of uric acid, or a combination of both. There is some degree of kidney dysfunction in 90% of people with gout. Those with gout should avoid drinking alcohol, avoid foods high in purines, lose weight (if overweight or obese), and increase exercise. Avoid baker s and brewer s yeast, organ meats, alcohol, mackerel, sardines, and shellfish. Also avoid asparagus and spinach. Diuretics should be avoided. Drink plenty of water to help flush uric acid from body. Cherries have also been shown to reduce gout with at least 250 gm/day. A half-pound of canned 162

163 or fresh cherries or a quart of cherry juice a day can resolve acute attacks. Vitamin C to 3000 mg twice per day will increase uric acid excretion. Bromelain at 1000 mg/day will dissolve uric acid. Quercetin at mg/day can help keep uric acid from forming. Nettle root increases excretion of uric acid from the kidneys. Chicory, Juniper Berry, Thuja have been found helpful for gout. Apple cider vinegar at 1 tablespoon/day is effective in preventing a gout attack. Graves Disease / Hyperthyroid Grave s disease is an overproduction of thyroid hormones (resembles hyperthyroid). It is considered to be an autoimmune disease. Toxins and/or pathogens in the thyroid should be a consideration, and if so, must be dealt with for successful recovery. Bugleweed may alleviate Grave s disease due to inhibiting of the binding of anti-bodies to the thyroid gland. Pregnenolone has been reported to rapidly resolve the protrusion of the eyes. Aspartame may cause Grave s disease due to cases that have been completely resolved following the withdrawal of aspartame use. Yersinia enterocolitica, a type of bacteria, may cause Grave's disease by provoking a response from the immune system that attacks the thyroid. Be careful of introducing iodine as it will stimulate an over-productive thyroid, and may also accelerate the heart. Gums, tighten - Alum Root, White Oak Bark Hair Loss / Alopecia Many commonly prescribed prescription drugs can cause temporary hair loss, trigger the onset of male and female pattern baldness, and even cause permanent hair loss. Hair loss may occur due to hypothyroidism. Hair loss may occur due to hyperthyroidism (50% of persons afflicted with hyperthyroidism exhibit diffuse hair loss) Excessive stress may cause some types of hair loss (usually occurs 2-3 months after the period of stress) Hair loss may occur as a result of a deficiency of linoleic acid (flax seed oil), potassium, iron, silica, biotin, folic acid, and a zinc/copper imbalance. Zinc and silica are needed for new hair growth. Some have found new hair and thickening of hair with flax seed oil (4000 mg) and borage seed oil (500 mg). Herbal extract formula of horsetail, dulse, sage, and rosemary rubbed into the scalp has been used to stop hair loss (formula is available through Good Herbs). Ginkgo and gotu kola have been used to stop hair loss. Cysteine - Many people with thin or slow growing hair report noticeable improvement in hair growth with 3,000-5,000 mg of cysteine daily; and in some cases the amount the amount of hair has doubled. Saw palmetto retards hair loss in men and women afflicted with male pattern baldness (400 mg/day) or applied topically as an extract may retard further loss in sufferers. When progesterone levels fall as a result of lack of ovulation (menopause), the body may respond by increasing its production of androstenedione, which is a precursor for the production of some male-like symptoms such as male pattern hair loss. When progesterone levels are raised by progesterone supplements, the androstenedione level will gradually fall, and normal hair growth will eventually resume. Many women that were losing their hair have reported thick and lustrous hair by applying ¼ 163

164 teaspoon of progesterone cream to their scalps each night. Hiatal Hernia When you swallow, your food passes down a long tube known as the esophagus into the stomach. This tube must pass through a muscle known as the diaphragm. This opening in the diaphragm, which permits the esophagus to pass through, is regulated by a sphincter muscle or valve which relaxes and opens to permit the food to pass through the diaphragm into the stomach. The sphincter then closes to prevent stomach acid from coming back up into the throat. A hiatal hernia occurs when the top of the stomach rolls or slides up into this opening and becomes stuck there, and thus the sphincter cannot close properly. When the sphincter cannot close properly stomach acid may travel back up into the esophagus causing heartburn, esophageal spasms, and ulcers. The cramped position of the stomach can also stress the vagus nerve, which stimulates the release of hydrochloric acid. This can cause both over and under secretion of hydrochloric acid and stomach enzymes. It may also affect the sphincter or valve at the bottom of the stomach so that digestive secretions "leak" out of the stomach and are lost before they have completed their job. A hiatal hernia can mimic many disorders. A person with this problem can get such severe pains in their chest that they think they are having a heart attack. They may think they have an over acid stomach because they will regurgitate stomach acid after they eat. Causes There may be a mechanical cause - improper lifting, hard coughing, straining with constipation, or perhaps poor posture may contribute to the development of this problem. Hiatal hernia may accompany a stuck open or spastic ileocecal valve. The material from the colon leaks back into the small intestine creating gas and indigestion, which puts pressure on the stomach and presses it tighter against the diaphragm. Low stomach acid Emotional issues such as anger where a person draws up their stomach may be a consideration. When people are stressed, they tend to contract the muscle fibers of the diaphragm. Identification Energetic response testing is one way. Another way may be recognizing when the person has to lift the chest and shoulders to take a deep breath, rather than being able to expand the lower belly at the solar plexus. Correction Immediate, but temporary, relief of pain and discomfort can often be achieved by the use of a mucilaginous herb like slippery elm, comfrey, aloe vera, Swedish bitters. These herbs absorb the digestive secretions and help to prevent their traveling back up the esophagus and burning it. Pepsin may also work. Useful homeopathic remedies include lycopodium, nux vomica, and nux moschata. The herbs and remedies are not a substitute for pulling the stomach down and for making the diet 164

165 and lifestyle changes needed. Have the person lie on their back. Place the bony spur of the heel of your right palm (near your wrist) just off the edge of the bottom of their breastbone in the soft area. Place your left palm on top of your right hand. Have the person take a deep breath and as they let it out, apply firm pressure inward and downward (45-degree angle) toward their left foot. Hold this for one minute while they breathe normally. This pulls the stomach back into position. If done correctly, relief will be noticed in a few hours. The procedure can be repeated and the individual can also attempt it on themselves. Sometimes the treatment needs to be done daily, then once a week, then every two weeks, and so on till it stays in place. Hashimoto's Disease / Hypothyroid Hashimoto s is a form of thyroiditis that involves chronic Inflammation classified as an autoimmune disease. It is regarded as a form of hypothyroidism. It is eight times more prevalent in women than men. The difference between Hashimoto s and just hypothyroid is Hashimoto s is an autoimmune condition where the thyroid is most likely being attacked by a pathogen. Infections with helicobacter pylori have been found in a high proportion of Hashimoto s thyroiditis patients. The most observable sign of hypothyroidism is a low basal temperature upon awakening in the morning. Lowered basal metabolic rate is the principal symptom of hypothyroidism. Approximately 50% of people with hypothyroidism are unaware that they have it. Most cases of hypothyroidism are due to nutritional deficiencies, with iodine and selenium being the big ones. Consumption of soybeans and soybean oil increases the risk of hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism may cause elevated LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Hypothyroidism may increase the risk of atherosclerosis, bradycardia, cardiovascular diseases, heart attack, hypertension, stroke, osteoporosis, female infertility, constipation, memory problems, and depression. The thyroid must have iodine, selenium, and zinc to function. Magnesium, copper, and iron are also needed to produce T3. Herbs useful for supporting and stimulating thyroid function are ashwagandha, forskolin, and guggulipid. Halitosis (see Bad Breath) Headache / Migraines Aspartame is one of the most common causes of headaches. MSG is another common cause of headaches and migraines. Declining levels of estrogen at the onset of menses is likely the cause of menstrual migraines. Lack of magnesium to relax the neck and shoulder area from stress is a common cause of headaches. Not drinking enough water and being constipated can cause headaches. One method that has worked very well is with peppermint oil. Apply to temples, then find pulse on each temple and gently hold for a few minutes till the pulses balance. Particularly good if headache is behind the eyes or on side of the head. Headache may be gone very quickly due to expanding the vessels and balancing of pulses. Lavender oil when applied to temples and neck relaxes tension and removes stress that may relieve a headache or migraine. Many times a toxic liver is behind headaches. Doing a liver detox can resolve the problem. A coffee enema might work more quickly. 165

166 Riboflavin (vitamin B 2) mg/day has been used to successfully reduce migraines. 5-HTP or tryptophan may prevent headaches, especially those caused by blood vessel constriction. Feverfew at 100 mg/day has had great success in up to 70% of cases, but it may take 1 to 3 months before headaches are abated. Butterbur at 150 mg/day has been very successful for migraines. It may take 1 to 3 months to be effective. Heart attack, stop carry liquid capsicum ready to drink as it will expand the arteries Heart Disease - Consuming 2 tablespoons of olive oil a day can lower your odds for heart disease by 44 percent. Just 1 tablespoon a day can slash your risk by 28 percent. Hemorrhaging, free bleeding skin or bowel capsicum or white oak bark extract Hemorrhoids Hemorrhoids are varicose veins of the anus. They are usually caused by a low fiber diet and constipation with straining. Psyllium seed husks may alleviate the pain and bleeding associated with hemorrhoids by softening the stool. Will disappear -- sometimes literally overnight -- when a mixture of 20 drops of SSKI (potassium iodide) and 1 ounce of flaxseed oil is applied to them at bedtime. Three proven herbs for hemorrhoids are horse chestnut, collinsonia root, and butcher's broom. They have been shown to improve micro-circulation and improve capillary flow and improve vascular tone and strengthen connective tissue. Should be taken orally and used as a suppository. Mix 1 teaspoon of 100% cocoa butter with the herbs of choice. Shape into a suppository about the size of the first joint of your ring finger. Roll in wax paper and put in refrigerator to harden. Vitamin K deficiencies have also been linked to varicose veins. Hepatitis C Hepatitis C is a viral disease that slowly destroys the liver. It is spread primarily by contaminated blood or contaminated blood products such as needles. The following protocol should provide excellent results to resolve this condition. Adopt a liver protective diet. (no red meat, no pork, no hydrogenated oils, no fried foods, no alcohol, and no sugar) Lipoic acid (300 mg twice a day) increases levels of glutathione, the liver s most active antioxidant. Silymarin (450 mg twice a day) stimulates liver regeneration. Selenium (200 mcg twice a day), an antioxidant mineral that slows down the replication of the hepatitis C virus. Vitamin D (2000 IU twice a day) boosts the immune system. No iron supplementation due to the fact that the hepatitis C virus inflicts most of its damage by latching onto molecules of iron. Take an anti-viral such as olive leaf, oregano oil, or sodium chlorite. Hiccups By far the best instant remedy for hiccups is a half-teaspoon of butter followed by a half-teaspoon of blackstrap molasses. It dissipates any foaming [acid] building up in the stomach that aggravates the esophagus and stomach and causes the twitch. Sometimes you only need the butter. High Blood Pressure Causes of high blood pressure can stem from: Lack of magnesium to expand arteries 166

167 Lack of flexibility of the arteries (EFA s and calcium deposits) Kidney issues Bladder issues Liver issues Clogged arteries Overweight Oxidation damage (heavy metals, bacteria, etc) Water retention (sodium/potassium balance) Lymphatic congestion Excessive caffeine Calcium buildup in arteries Chronic dehydration Overactive nervous system (try hyssop or taurine) Pregnancy or a combination of any of the above. Blood Pressure Classification Systolic (mm Hg) Diastolic (mm Hg) Normal High Normal Hypertension Greater than 140 Greater than 90 What can you can do? Drink plenty of water to relax the system and so that the blood isn t so thick. Get sufficient magnesium, essential fatty acids, and potassium-based foods Clean out the arteries of heavy metals if needed (Zeolites, cilantro extract, EDTA) Clean out the arteries of calcium (EDTA, gravel root, hydrangea) Olive Leaf Extract, Garlic, and Hawthorn are supreme among herbs CoQ10, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C can also lower blood pressure Drink celery juice every day. It is loaded with potassium, magnesium; and it has 3-n-butylphthalide, a compound that relaxes the smooth muscle cells in the arterial walls. Beets have a chemical that turns to nitric oxide in our bodies. It also helps protect the lining of the arteries and can also thin the blood. This formula has the potential to lower blood pressure: (just juice and drink) o two raw organic carrots o three organic celery sticks o one-half of an organic cucumber o one organic beetroot Garlic A new study published in Pakistan Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences has revealed that garlic is at least as effective as the blockbuster blood pressure lowering drug atenolol in reducing systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients diagnosed with essential hypertension, a condition linked to the #1 cause of death in developed countries. Researchers at the Department of Pharmacology, College of Pharmacy, King Khalid University, Abha, Saudi Arabia gave test subjects either, one of five doses of garlic (300/mg, 600/mg, 900/mg, 1200/mg, 1500/mg) in divided doses per day, a tablet of atenolol, or a placebo, for 24 weeks. Blood pressure readings were recorded at weeks 0, 12 and 24. The study 167

168 results showed significant decreases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in both dose and duration dependent manner in all the treatment groups. The results of the treatments on systolic and diastolic blood pressure were reported as follows: As can be seen by the results, in each garlic treated group, significant reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure were observed when compared with atenolol and placebo. In fact, the higher doses of garlic (1200 mg/1500 mg) were technically superior to atenolol in lowering blood pressure. Hives are an acute or chronic allergic reaction in which red, raised lumps (whelts) develop on the skin - these lumps itch intensely and may last for hours or days. Each lump typically has a whitish, raised patch of skin surrounded by a reddish halo. The lumps may be tiny or large, and may occur all over the body or be confined to one area. The individual whelts usually subside within 48 hours, although new ones may continue to appear and disappear for an extended period of time. Anti-histamines are commonly prescribed for the treatment of hives. Supplemental Hydrochloric Acid may be useful for the treatment of Hives (as many cases of Hives are believed to occur as a result of Food Allergies resulting from insufficient endogenous production of Hydrochloric Acid). Vitamin B12 (at least 1000 mcg per day) may alleviate many (up to 90% of) cases of Hives. Nettle is a natural anti-histamine that may be helpful. Hyperthyroidism (see Grave s Disease) Hypothyroidism (see Hashimoto's Disease) Impotence (See Erectile Dysfunction) Insomnia Getting a good night s sleep starts with good sleep hygiene. o Go to bed and rise at the same times every day, even on weekends. o Maintain a bedtime routine, doing the same (relaxing) activities every night. o Sleep in a dark, quiet room. Mask ambient noises and use earplugs if necessary. o Avoid caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol in the hours preceding bedtime. o Exercise routinely during the day to improve onset and quality of sleep. If you continually wake at about 2 am, that is usually a liver issue. If you continually wake at about 4 am, that is usually an adrenal issue. Common natural items used for support are: o Melatonin 168
