A recent study conducted by the Journal of Diabetes & Metabolic Disorders found that suboptimal vitamin D status may be related to psychiatric distress, but not violence in adolescents. Psychiatric distress is characterized by a wide range of unpleasant feelings or emotions that impact an individual’s quality of life.
Symptoms may include anger, anxiety, insomnia, confusion, depression and worry. In some cases, violent behaviors may accompany psychiatric distress. Research has found that vitamin D status is associated with mental disorders, cognitive impairment and depressive symptoms in adults. However, these findings have been inconsistent. In addition, few studies have evaluated the relationship between vitamin…• • • • More • • • •
I find more people complaining of sinusitis throughout the year. Perhaps it’s due to the change of diet or chemicals in our food and in the air. One way to treat sinusitis with natural herbs is to use a combination of eucalyptus oil and oil of myrtle. When these two herbs are found in a softgel capsule, with a special enteric coating, the oils are able to go into the lower intestines without being dispersed in the stomach.
Eucalyptus and myrtle work wonders for sinusitis and bronchitis. This combination is the number two selling product of all natural products in…• • • • More • • • •
Whether its pain, strain, or sprain, comfrey is an herb to increase healing significantly and to reduce pain. For wounds, topical ulcers, scrapes, and abrasions, comfrey also does wonders. I can’t think of a place where you can topically apply comfrey that it would not work.
Every home should have comfrey cream in their medicine chest, their gym bag, or desk drawer. It’s a life saver. Make sure you find a comfrey cream that is PA free as these alkaloids can cause liver damage if it’s not PA free.• • • • More • • • •
For those who can’t eat fruits and vegetables daily, the best supplements to provide the flavonoids found in fruits and vegetables are grape seed extract and curcumin. Studies throughout the world suggest positive benefits to prevent and reverse most of our current diseases today including cancer.
While drugs work on one pathway and the potential of disturbing many other pathways, natural substances like grape seed and curcumin work on multiple pathways as multiple levels of those pathways all simultaneously. Our current diseases today are not due to a lack of drugs but primarily due to a lack of fruits and…• • • • More • • • •
It has an ability to restore healthy function to arteries and veins, more effective than any drug developed to this date. Over time it can restructure a healthy lining to the arteries and reduce any inflammatory processes. It restores the elasticity and flexibility to the arteries reducing stiffness and inflexibility to the arteries, which can be an aid to lowering blood pressure. Mesoglycan can also reduce the thickening of the endothelium, which is responsible for reducing the inner diameter of the artery that requires the heart to work harder to push the blood through.
A healthy artery can deliver more…• • • • More • • • •
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 • • • •
