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 • • • •

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.

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 • • • •

Much of our fatigue and exhaustion is caused by adrenal insufficiency, in other words, an underactive adrenal function. This underactivity can be caused by a lack of nutrients that provide nourishment for the adrenals, or a loss of one of our two adrenals, or a defect in the adrenals. While there is no disease present, you can expect a weak adrenal system to work effectively no more than a weak arm could lift a heavy object. Of all the people surveyed with adrenal insufficiency, 94% experienced fatigue and exhaustion.
Many were very pessimistic, unusual complainers, experienced unfounded fears, made mountains…• • • • More • • • •

Dr. Seelig studied magnesium over 40 years and reported that it could replace the whole pharmacy of cardiovascular drugs. Men should take 420 mg of magnesium daily and women 320 mg of magnesium daily. Both doctors consider…• • • • More • • • •

Recent research at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest has discovered a unique form of echinacea, and through research discovered a set of phytochemicals that triggers the neurons in the brain for relaxation. This is not the type of echinacea that supports the immune system when plagued with a cold or flu. This echinacea is a special variety which triggers and targets brain neurons.
Usually when echinacea is consumed, it is taken in significant quantities, but scientists in Budapest found the dosage to be different for this unique species, and only 20 mg of echinacea is required one or…• • • • More • • • •
