They contain nutrients that protect the vascular system and the heart. Grapes can repair and prevent damage to the arteries and capillaries.
The heart is a pump and will continue to function flawlessly in most people until the inflammatory damage in the arteries is so severe that plaque builds up and restricts blood flow, preventing free blood flowing through carrying the necessary nutrients and oxygen to the brain and heart. Also, this process is a major cause of high blood pressure when the entire cardiovascular system is compromised.
A special grape seed extract, free of tannins, can heal and reverse…• • • • More • • • •
Anyone who has followed my lectures or radio shows knows how I respect the virtues of curcumin. I also have a deep respect for a tannin-free, high absorption Grape seed extract (OPC). Curcumin does affect thousands of pathways in the body versus a drug that affects only one pathway in the body at a time. That’s why curcumin can virtually treat every health condition imaginable. With that being said, Grape seed is the other half of a dynamic duo that can improve your health.
For several years in the 1990’s, Grape seed extract was considered the curcumin of the 1990…• • • • More • • • •
Shingles are caused by a virus that, in healthy people, lies dormant and inactive in the nervous system. Neuropathy is a disorder of the nervous system, which then causes burning and painful feet, numbing and tingling of the extremities or both. While not life threatening, it can cause a great deal of misery.
I’ve heard more than one doctor claim there is no cure for neuropathy or shingles. After watching TV commercials with their very dramatized characters pushing vaccines for shingles, which irritates me to no end, you would think there is nothing you can do with a natural alternative.…• • • • More • • • •
As we age, we notice our body slows down in our various activities. We don’t run as fast as we did 30 or 40 years ago. Our minds are not as sharp as they were 20 or 30 years ago. Aging should be a healthy process. It’s inevitable, but we should experience a better quality of life as we age. Of course, the digestive system can also be found to slow down over time. We may not digest as well because we do not secrete the level of enzymes as someone half our age.
We need an enzyme called protease…• • • • More • • • •
Several herbs have been proven to be effective in lowering blood pressure as effectively as blood pressure medication. The three most commonly studied herbs are olive leaf extract, hibiscus and grape seed extract. All could be used together or a choice of one or two for a trial of lowering blood pressure. The clinically studied dosage of grape seed extract to lower blood pressure was 150 mg twice a day. It would require a trial of at least three months.
On the more positive side, there are no side effects using these plant extracts. In some cases, diuretics are prescribed…• • • • More • • • •
In the 1900s, the average consumption of sugar was 10 pounds per person annually. In 1986, the FDA found no reason to put a warning out on sugar as the average consumption per person annually was 40 pounds. 25 years later it has skyrocketed to approximately 250 pounds of sugar per person annually.
The development of high fructose corn syrup being added to a number of different foods and the increased consumption of sugared soft drinks is responsible for this increase of sugar consumption. Along with the intake of sugar, cookies, candies, cakes, breads, crackers, pasta and a number of…• • • • More • • • •
Between these two natural medicines, there are over 18,000 studies that prove their medicinal value. Research at both Baylor University and the University of Colorado have shown that curcumin and grape seed can prevent and stop breast cancer. Grape seed is an aromatase inhibitor without side effects versus the aromatase inhibitor Tamoxifen, which has side effects. Your choice could be either grape seed extract or Tamoxifen as they both block an enzyme which aids in estrogen production.
Estrogen can stimulate the growth of some types of breast cancer cells. One study found that grape seed extract reduced by 50% the…• • • • More • • • •
Our liver is a crucial organ that supports over 300 body functions. Nature must consider the liver critical for good health as it is the only organ that doctors could surgically remove 75% of the liver and it will grow back to its original shape and size. The liver has a major task in converting many of our nutrients to the biologically active form, emulsifying the fats in our diet so they are digested and assimilated. It can help detoxify the body of thousands of toxins and chemicals. Because of the American diet, which is high in sugar and carbohydrates,…• • • • More • • • •
Glutathione is the Master Antioxidant Providing Protection for Every Cell in the Body. It is so important that it’s not left to chance that it could be supplied to our body from an outside source. It is manufactured in the liver through a process of a combination of amino acids.
For reasons unexplained and unknown, our glutathione levels can drop significantly low. It is at that stage that the aging process, filled with a variety of diseases, starts to escalate. There is a YouTube which shows Dr. David Perlmutter working with a Parkinson’s patient who can barely walk and talk…• • • • More • • • •
Many products are sold over the counter to reduce the symptoms of allergies. The main cause is never considered. A foreign substance can cause an increase of the 5-Lox enzyme with an elevated level of leukotrienes. The most effective way to support individuals with allergies is with an age old Chinese formula containing licorice root, Chinese peony, Siler, Sweet wormwood, Summer Cyprus, and Dong Quai. This Chinese formula has been in the Chinese medical text for 5,000 years. Usually 1000 mg twice a day is highly effective. In order to reduce the elevated level of leukotrienes, many alternative physicians prescribe…• • • • More • • • •
A lack of sleep is as destructive to the body as smoking. Everyone should enjoy good, sound sleep at least 8 to 9 hours a night. However, most of the drugs that are prescribed to induce sleep have too many side effects that lower the benefits of their use.
A new European formulation of plant oils to induce a sound sleep is now available in the U.S. These four plants are mandarin orange, lavender, lemon balm, and ravensara. These plant oils are available in softgels. Taking 1 or 2 softgels before bedtime will reduce the stress of the day and…• • • • More • • • •
Sea buckthorn, both pulp and seed oil, is valuable for improving the quality and moisture of mucous membranes.

Your heart is a muscle. It needs calcium in order to contract. Did you know that calcium levels in your heart muscle cells increase 10 times every time your heart beats? What does this have to do with vitamin D? Vitamin D increases calcium absorption in the intestines. In fact, you could not absorb calcium at all without vitamin D! Many experts recommend 5,000 IU of vitamin D daily.• • • • More • • • •
Comfrey is an age old herb that has been used for thousands of years, and a major healing plant during revolutions and wars to heal trauma, pain, and wounds. It was the number one herb in most medicine chests and recommended by herbalists until recently when it was discovered to contain alkaloids that could cause liver damage. It looked like we were losing one of our most valuable herbs for eliminating pain, trauma, sprains, arthritis pain, wounds, abrasions, cuts, bruises, burns and whatever seems to ail you.

Strontium can have a tremendous effect in positively changing bone health and bone density. In fact, it can fight and possibly even prevent osteoporosis. My good friend, Dr. Jonathan Wright, observed significant improvement in the bone density of his patients who used strontium citrate, which of the several forms available, is the most easily absorbed by the body.
The results of a three year randomized, double-blind placebo controlled study using 2 grams strontium daily were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, and were impressive: women suffering from osteoporosis experienced a 41% reduction in risk of a vertebral fracture…• • • • More • • • •
A lack of iron is the number one deficiency in the world. A lack of iron is the number one deficiency in women aged 50 and younger. 50% of all pregnant women are deficient in iron. One out of every five menstruating women are deficient in iron. Iron deficiency causes fatigue, lack of concentration, brain fog, and cold hands and feet. In fact, it has been estimated that 90% of women complaining of chronic fatigue are deficient in iron.
The most effective form of iron that is non-constipating or irritating to the stomach lining is iron glycinate. Iron glycinate is…• • • • More • • • •
