Depression - there are numerous underlying causes for depression.  There are many natural products that can help.  Consult with your doctor before using any of these formulas, especially if you are presently taking prescription anti-depressants.  Many of these natural products have been proven in clinical testing to be as effective or better than pharmaceutical drugs in treating mild to moderate depression. For Example, St. John's Wort is widely prescribed by medical doctors in Germany. Getting moderate amounts of daily exercise is one of the best and least expensive tools in fighting depression. Exercise boosts your body's natural serotonin and dopamine levels. Simply taking a pill, whether prescription or natural, may not solve depression without also addressing other underlying factors that may include: life-style situations, heavy metal toxicity, environmental toxins, allergies, endocrine system imbalances (adrenal exhaustion), side effects of various medications, poor strategies for dealing with grief, loss, stress, and many other possible factors. Don't overlook the fact that in some cases, temporary depression is the normal response to a life crisis, such as a death of a loved one, etc. In these cases, time and short term therapy / counseling or just talking to supportive friends may help you get past the depression without reliance on potentially addictive drugs.

Psychiatric Drug Side-Effects - understand the dangers and possible side effects of the anti-anxiety, anti-depressants, ADHD drugs - http://www.cchrint.org/psychdrugdangers

Did you know ....taking SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors - Prozac, Paxil, Seroxat, Zoloft, Luvox, Effexor)) anti-depressants along with NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen or COX-2 inhibitors) increases the risk of dangerous gastro-intestinal bleeding by 600%. These findings were reported by researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine.

Depression Resource website - Fighting Depression - articles and resources for fighting depression - scientific explanations of the chemical mechanisms of depression and the action of alternative treatments including: Tryptophan, 5HTP, L-Deprenyl, NADH, SAMe, Gerovital (GH3), St. John's Wort and much more. http://www.fightingdepression.co.uk/Beating%5Fdepression/

5-HTP -  Serotonin precurser - Supplier -  http://www.lifelinknet.com/siteResources/ProductPages/HTP.asp
Lithium Orotate or Aspartate - a brain anti-aging element.  Used in depression and mood disorders.  Helps rehabilitate the brain in recovering alcoholics. Over the counter supplement found in most health food stores contain small dosage tablets of 5 mg. or so (usually taken 3x per day) Mainstream Lithium Carbonate, prescribed by doctors for bi-polar condition is usually given in doses of up to 300mg. per day.  The small amounts in the health food store brands should not cause any type of side effects.
St. John's Wort - shown to be as effective as the prescription PAXIL in patients with moderate to severe depression.  Reported in the British Medical Journal, 2005.  The suggested dosage is 300mg three times per day.  St. John's Wort lessens the effects of some drugs and should not be taken with Statins, Digoxin, Oral Contraceptives, Coumadin or Prilosec.  Check with your doctor for other potential drug interactions before taking St. John's Wort. The product used in the Paxil study is called - Perika - by Nature's Way.
SAMe - is a natural amino acid metabolite found in the body in nearly every cell.  SAMe produces significant improvements in mood, similar to anti-depressants, but without the major side-effects. It also works much faster than drugs (within one week, compared to six to eight weeks for prescription drugs).  Suggested Dosage is 200-400mg. twice a day on an empty stomach.  It should not be taken by anyone who is suicidal or has bi-polar disorder.
L-Tryptophan - this is a precuresor for serotonin. Some medical authorities suggest starting with 3 to 5 grams per day and perhaps gradually reducing the dosage if the symptoms are brought under control.
DHEA - a National Institute of Mental Health study found DHEA to be an effective treatment for midlife-onset depression.  Although DHEA is available as an over the counter supplement in health food stores, keep in mind that this is a hormone normally produced by the body.  Ideally, one should have their hormone levels checked for any imbalances prior to taking DHEA supplements.  Suggested Dosage: 25 mg per day for women and 50 mg per day for men.  Have your blood levels tested before beginning supplementation or increasing the dose for DHEA.
Adrafinil - brand name - Olmifon - stimulant / anti-depressant that also enhances mental clarity, alertness and awareness
Omega 3 Fatty Acids - flax oil and fish oils (EPA and DHA) - cell membranes require a lot of omega 3 essential fatty acids.  This is especially true of the brain.  Omega 3 fats fight depression by increasing the neurotransmitter production of Serotonin and Dopamine. Use of Omega 6 oils - found in sunflower oil, safflower oil, soy and corn oil has largely replace the more beneficial Omega 3 oils found in flax and fish. The heavy imbalance of Omega 6 oils over Omega 3 in the Western diet contributes to depression, suicide and aggression. Remember, that the brain is composed of about 60% fat. The medical and pharmaceutical establishment, with their much discredited crusade against fats and cholesterol are doing untold damge to millions of people.

Diabetes / Neuropathy Supplements and Therapies

AGE -
(advanced glycation end products) - excessive sugar and refined carbohydrates in the diet may lead to insulin resistance and to the formation of AGE (which can be measured by a blood test called Hemoglobin A1c). AGE are formed through a process called Glycation, in which proteins combine with blood sugar (glucose) and become cross-linked and less elastic. AGE's generate free radicals and cause lipid peroxidation, thereby triggering inflammatory reactions in tissues, arteries, brain, etc. This contributes to aging overall in the body and is even involved in the formation of cataracts. When these reactions become chronic, this contributes to heart disease, stroke, neuro-degenerative diseases and rapid aging. It is the chronic inflammatory process, along with oxidized fats that creates such a problem, but cholesterol is singled out and improperly blamed for heart diseases such as atherosclerosis. Analysis of arterial plaques indicates the majority of the oxidized fats are composed of Omega-6 oils, such as corn oil, safflower, sunflower, peanut, canola and soybean. These are the very same "beneficial" polyunsaturated oils recommend as part of a healthy diet by mainstream medical authorities. These rancid oils are found in most processed foods, salad dressings, baked goods and of course in the "poison aisle" (cooking oils) of your local supermarket. Avoid these toxic oils (including margarine) like the plague and stick to virgin olive oil, organic cold-pressed coconut oil, red palm oil and other organic oils. Make sure to get a balance of Omega-3 and Omega 6 oils in the diet. The Western diet has a large imbalance of Omega-6 oils.

Resveratrol - the heart-healthy anti-oxidant found in red grapes and red wine.  Available in concentrated capsule supplement equal to 12 glasses of red wine. Resveratrol has the ability to reduce AGE's (Advanced Glycation End Products) from the cells. AGE can damage the heart muscle and contribute to heart failure & abnormal heart beat.

Benfotiamine - is a new form of Vitamin B1 (thiamine). This form of vitamin B-1 has the proven ability to increase a special glucose-guiding enzyme (called transketolase) by up to 250%. Benfotiamine also blocks the cross-linking that produces AGE's. It is fat-soluable and also reduces insulin resistance and has anti-oxidant capabilities that protects against inflammation of the blood vessels in diabetics. Regular B-1 does not have the same anti-inflammatory effect. Suggested dosage according to some health authorities is 100mg. 3x daily for the first six weeks, then 150mg. per day after that. There is a doctor formulated supplement that includes benfotiamine, cinnamon and chromium - called - GlucoComplete - Order from Real Advantage Nutrients - 1-800-817-2575.

Berberine - is said to offer the benefits of Metformin, but without the side-effects. It helps with type 2 diabetes in many ways - it helps regulate blood sugar, improves glucose transport, burns fatty acids, improves insulin resistance and actually increases the number of insulin receptors. Read a complete explanation of this herb at the website of Dr. Jonathan Wright, of the Tahoma Clinic in Kent, Washington - http://tahomaclinicblog.com/berberine-diabetes/

There are a number of other supplements that will reduce the destructive AGE's in the body. These include: Resveratrol, Curcumin(Turmeric), L-Carnosine, Quercetin, Green and White Tea.

Diabetes Prevention - a study published in the Lancet in 2001 reported on a 31 year long prospective study of over 10,000 children born in 1966 in northern Finland. Children who were given 2,000 IU of Vitamin D per day during the first year of their lives, had an 80 percent reduction in Type 1 Diabetes reported over the following 31 years! Omega 3 fatty acids have also been demonstrated to reduce type 1 diabetes formation. Both of these nutrients are available in the form of Cod Liver Oil. Prospective mothers can safely take 1 tablespoon of cod liver oil daily and while breast feeding in order to confer the benefits to their infant. Cod liver oil is rich in natural vitamin D and A, while regular Fish Oil is good for Omega 3 fatty acids, but is not rich in Vitamins D and A. Be sure to purchase a high quality brand such as Carlson's or the fermented fish oils from Green Pasture.org

Testosterone - some men with diabetes can benefit dramatically from bio-identical testosterone replacement therapy, that can restore glucose and insulin levels to normal range in a short time period. Testosterone is involved with insulin metabolism along with many other vital functions. There are simple tests for measuring total and free testosterone. Be sure to rule out active prostate cancer before using testosterone replacement therapy.

Water as a Treatment for Diabetes - surprisingly, chronic water dehydration could be a cause of diabetes in some individuals.  This can often be improved and in some cases, reversed by drinking 8 glasses of water per day and engaging in daily moderate exercise, such as walking.  This simple formula has been advanced by  Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, M.D., Author of the book - Your Body's Many Cries for Water.  Published by - Global Health Solutions, Inc. P.O. Box 3189.  Falls Church, VA. 22043.  Tel. (703) 848-2333  ISBN 0-9629942-5-1. Dr. B. is now deceased, but a website with his information is located at - http://www.phenomenews.com/nov2005/archive_set.htm Recommendation is to drink 8 to 10 (8-ounce) glasses of water per day (and 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in the daily diet).  Soft drinks, coffee, tea, juices, alcholol do not count as water.

Other supplements that help lower blood sugar glucose levels and reduce diabetic complications

Aloe Vera - gel, capsules, or liquid. Look for good quality with listed MPS levels of 1,200 mg. Reduces fasting blood sugar levels and cholesterol. Sources: Aloe Immune, Aloe Master, MPS Gold. There are many other high quality aloe products.

Gymnema Sylvestre - 400mg - an Indian herb that effectively lowers blood sugar - Supplier - http://www.gymnema-sylvestre.com/
Chromium  Picolinate - 400 mcg

Vanadyl sulfate - 100mg

Cinnamon/Clove - combination formulas available at health food stores - look for the variety of cinnamon called - cinnamomum cassia.
Cinnamon - 1/2 - 1 teaspoon daily reduces blood sugar levels and cholesterol.  1/4 teaspoon, twice daily has been shown to lower blood sugar levels 18 to 29 percent, triglycerides as much as 30 percent, and total cholesterol 12 to 26 percent - after just 40 days.  One source recommends mixing cinnamon powder into foods, shakes, etc. while another authority states that saliva de-activates the active ingredient in cinnamon.  He recommends taking a capsule form. One of the medical sources we researched claims that only a particular form of Cinnamon, called - Cinnamomum cassia - was the most effective in lowering blood sugar levels. The nutrient found in cinnamon that mimics insulin, is called - methylhydroxychalcone (or MHCP). There may be some combination formulas incorporate cinnamon or MHCP so look for these at your health food store.
Cloves - 1/2 teaspoon daily reduces blood sugar levels and cholesterol.  May be mixed with cinnamon as suggested above.  According to a study by Dr. Alam Khan of Pakistan, 36 individuals with type 2 diabetes had the following results:  individuals took either 0, 1, 2, or 3 grams of cloves for a period of 30 days.  All of those taking cloves had significant improvements.  Those who took no cloves showed no improvements.  Those on cloves had an average decrease in glucose from 225 to 150 mg/dL, Triglycerides went from 235 to 203 mg/dL.  Total cholesterol decreased from 273 to 239 mg./dL.  LDL cholesterol decreased from 175 to 145 mg/dL.  HDL remained the same.

Vinegar - research indicates that taking 2 tablespoons of vinegar PRIOR to a meal dramatically reduces the spike in blood levels of glucose and insulin that occur after eating a meal.  Apple cider vinegar, white vinegar, balsamic vinegar should all work the same way.  Subjects diagnosed as pre-diabetic had the best response (up to 50 percent drop in glucose within the first hour after eating).Those with type 2 diabetes experienced an average 25 perecent drop in blood sugar levels.  These results are comparable to some anti-diabetes drugs.
Evening primrose or borage oil - 1,500mg.
Alpha lipoic acid - 200-600 mg. - can help support and rebuild nerve function & sensation in diabetic neuropathy.


Diabetes and Coffee - caffeinated coffee has been shown to increase blood sugar levels from 8 to 26 percent, depending upon the time of day (9 percent after breakfast, 15 percent after lunch and 26 percent after dinner) Reference - Diabetes Care - 08;31:221-222. Caffeine triggers release of adrenalin, which makes the cells less responsive to insulin. This results in higher levels of blood sugar with all of the attendant damage this can cause over a long term. Surprisingly, De-Caffeinated coffee did not cause this effect in the studies. So, go ahead and enjoy your occasional cup of coffee for its flavor and excellent anti-oxidant benefits!

Aspartame
- many diabetics (and now, the population in general) have been brainwashed into eating or drinking foods, beverages, snack foods, that use aspartame instead of sugar. These people falsely believe they are doing something healthy for their bodies. Aspartame is 10 to 11 percent methanol by weight. This breaks down in the body into formaldahyde and then to formic acid. Drink several artificially sweetened drinks or coffee sweeteners per day and you may be pickling your brain. Aspartame contains high percentages of the amino acids phenylalanine and aspartic acid. They make up 90 percent of aspartame. These amino acids trigger the body to release the hormones, insulin and leptin. This confuses your brain's satiety signaling feedback mechanism and adds excess insulin into the bloodstream. This results in ever more craving for sweets and leads to weight gain.....just the opposite of what dieters are hoping to accomplish. Educate yourself! All the information you need for good health is literally at your fingertips today with the information on the internet.

Wound Healing Products - for diabetic related or other pressure sores and wounds, such as bed sores - Wound Care Shop - (866)207-5909 or http://www.woundcareshop.com


Diabetes Sores - supplementing with Zinc can dramatically speed healing of sores and ulcerations. Dosage information not given.
Honey - a "Sweet" secret of healing open wounds or ulcerations (in diabetics or bed sores) is to dress the wound with regular granulated white sugar or honey. Sugar creates an environment where bacteria cannot thrive. This method has been used extensively in India. Today, with all of the emerging anti-biotic resistant bacteria such as MRSA, utilizing these "old-fashioned" but effective methods could be a solution to healing stubborn open wounds in diabetics or in bed-ridden patients suffering from bed sores. Simply isolate the open wound area with strips of gauze bandage coated in vasoline petroleum jelly, then pour 1/4 inch of sugar right on the wound and cover it with a gauze bandage. Clean the wound every 2 days and repeat the procedure until healed. The same method can be followed using Honey. A good brand of honey to consider is called Manuka Honey, available in many health food stores.

Down Syndrome - many physical and metabolic symptoms associated with Down Syndrome can be greatly improved according to the research of Dixie Lawrence, a non-medical researcher and mother of a Down Syndrome daughter. Dixie developed a nutritional formula called Nutrivene-D, that helps overcome metabolic deficiencies. For ordering and more information see - http://www.nutrivene.com Phone - (800)899-3413
Eczema 

E-TEA - is a special blend of Chinese Herbs in the form of a tea or capsules has shown to be very effective for many individuals.  When drinking the tea, use three cups per day, one after each meal for the first week.  Then reduce to 2 cups per day following meals.  Then, down to 1 cup per day as improvement continues.  With the capsules, use 1 capsule twice per day (morning & evening) for 1 or 2 weeks.  Then cut down to 1 capsule per day.  If results are very positive, one can eliminate the tea entirely and see if the condition remains clear.  Naturally, this formula does not work for everyone, but give it two weeks to see if it works. Supplier - P.C. Teas Co. (800-423-8728) or http://www.teastohealth.com

Corvalen - M - a supplement of Ribose, Malic Acid and Magnesium - that boosts ATP production to restore energy and reduce muscle soreness.  These are two of the main symptoms of Fibromyalgia.The ATP raising ability of Ribose also makes it very  beneficial for cardiovascular health and for an energy boost after strenuous athletic workouts.  Suggested dosage 5 to 10 grams per day from 1 to 3 times daily.  Non-toxic and no side effects. Supplier - Valen Labs Inc. - phone - (866)267-8253  Internet - http://www.valenlabs.com

Body Oxygen - according to medical studies this formula increases mitochondria by up to 25 percent. This unique formulation combines yeast cells, fruit juices, amino acids and certain vitamins that stimulate mitochondrial activity. According to the research of Dr. Siegfried Wolz, the German physician who developed Body Oxygen.  Mitochondria are cell organelles (literally; organs of the cell) that serve as power plants, processing nutrients and oxygen that feed the cells. But toxins and diseases weaken mitochondria, often reducing cellular efficiency, as we grow older. The results range from the typical signs of aging to chronic and debilitating illnesses.
Original Dr. Wolz formulas - https://www.wolz.de/en/about-dr-wolz/dr-wolz-overseas.html
This claim has been backed up by a European trial that showed Body Oxygen effectively increased cellular respiration (oxygenation) in a study of 20,000 cancer patients. The author of that study, Dr. Serge Jurasunas, believes that a daily dosage of Body Oxygen may help prevent and treat the disorders caused by decreased mitochondrial ATP production. Body Oxygen supplier at - http://www.bodyoxygen.com

Algaea-X (or Mitol) - a topical pain cream derived from Korean seaweed (ecklonia cava).

Also said to work for dermatitis, tendonitis muscle aches and fibromyalgia. Supplier - Advanced Bionutritionals - 1-800-791-3395. http://www.advancedbionutritionals.com/


Gallbladder - many gallbladder problems can be alleviated by avoiding certain foods that cause allergic reactions. This could be things like eggs, onions, cooking oils or other foods. Periodic Gallbladder/Liver flushes can be helpful in many cases. Basic instructions for this procedure can easily be located on the internet. If you have already had your Gallbladder removed, it is very important to replace the missing bile that is normally collected in the gallbladder and released after a meal. The solution for this is to take Bile Salt supplements daily. A good formula is called Cholacol - from Standard Process. You can order this item from Village Green Apothecary - (800)869-9159. Also, see - http://www.medicinenet.com/gallstones/article.htm for more information about the gallbladder and its functions. The Gallbladder performs many important functions for the body including: helping to digest fats and all fat-soluble vitamins, It also helps to remove toxins, bacteria and viruses from the body.

Dissolve Gallstones and Kidney Stones - South American Herb - Chanca Piedra - taken as a tea, can dissolve Gallstones, sometimes within a couple of weeks. It has no drug side-effects and tastes like a strong black tea. Available in many health food stores or from Rainforest Herbs - http://www.rain-tree.com/index.html
Magnesium - in the form of magnesium citrate or malate (not magnesium aspartate) - research has shown that low magnesium levels significantly raise the risk for gallstones and kidney stones. Taking magnesium in the forms mentioned, greatly inhibits stone formation. Magnesium also reduces the painful spasms associated with a kidney stone attack and helps to dislodge the stone from the tube leading from the kidney to the bladder (the ureter). Dosages were not suggested in these references.


GERD / Acid Reflux / Heartburn - Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease - a good natural remedy is deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL).  This herb increases production of protective mucous cells and helps reduce inflammation.  Look for DGL in health food stores or on-Line.  Eating smaller meal portions and avoiding irritating foods will help you avoid acid reflux.  Also, drink a glass of water 1/2 hour before eating.  Water is essential for rebuilding the protective mucous lining of the stomach. Heartburn and related symptoms may actually be caused by TOO LITTLE stomach acid. This situation is then worsened when people consume over the counter antacids. When there is an insufficiency of hydrochloric acid needed for proper digestion, it does little good to inhibit the small amount of stomach acid that may be remaining. One may find temporary relief by taking antacid medicines, but the key is to restore the proper balance of hydrochloric acid. One may take hydrochloric acid/betaine/pepsin supplements from the health food store. However, it is best to have stomach acid function tested by a competent doctor (not one who simply wants to place you on prescription medicine to control your heartburn). This condition is nearly always curable with the proper treatment. Another great remedy for too little stomach acid, is the Standard Process product called Zypan - available from Total Health Discount Vitamins - 800-283-2833 - http://www.totalhealthdiscountvitamins.com Sometimes, excess stomach acid is caused by an over-excited Vagus Nerve and this can be caused by factors such as Hiatal Hernia, deficiency of alkaline minerals in the diet and chronic stress.

D-limonene - extract of citrus peel - provides a protective coating for the stomach and esophagus. In a clinical trial, subjects took one gram of d-limonene every other day for 20 days. One third of subjects reported relief from heartburn after just a single capsule. Within 2 weeks, 90 percent reported relief. A single course of treatment provided symptomatic relief for up to six months. As of now, d-limonene is available only through health care practitioners, but this may change in the future. Check with the manufacturer - Integrative Therapeutics. http://www.patient.integrativeinc.com/Products/Digestion/Occasional-Heartburn-and-Indigestion.aspx

Gluten Intolerance ( IBS, Celiac Disease, etc.) - a new product called Ultimate Lectin Defense, formulated by Dr. Michael Cutler, M.D. - said to dramatically relieve the effects of gluten allergy due to its ability to flush protein particles (called LECTINS) out of the body. Read more about this at - http://landing.truehealth.com/products/ultimate-lectin-defense/TEL_LP01.asp?SC=TEL1004 or phone 1-800-746-4513. A good book for a gluten elimination and healing program was written by Elaine Gottschall. - Breaking the Vicious Cycle - a step by step guide on healing yourself from IBS and Celiac Disease and lesser gluten intolerance problems.

Hair Loss Treatments

Prevent hair loss and promote fast hair growth with our hair loss treatments. We have world famous hair growth supplements from Viviscal, Bosley, Therapro, Rusk, Agadir, Nioxin and all other major hair product brands - http://www.hairgrowthcentral.com/

Directory of websites for hair loss information, products, etc. - http://www.forhairloss.com/hairloss/

Low Level Lasers can be effective in restoring hair loss, along with shampoos that block DHT in the scalp. Naturally, individual results will vary. Hair loss can have many different causes. In some individuals, there can be inadequate hydrochloric acid production in the stomach that prevents the proper breakdown and absorption of vitamins and minerals in food. This can lead to a host of physical problems, including poor hair health. Hydrochloric acid with betaine supplements are available in health food stores, but it is best to have levels of stomach acids checked by a doctor before using these type of supplements. Otherwise, you could be spending money on unnecessary supplements. Other contributing factors may include low thyroid, hormone imbalance (especially in post-menopausal women with diffused hair loss pattern) and simply a genetic predisposition.

Pulsed Magnetic Fields - for treatment of migraine.  Read this article on Web-MD about the work of Dr. Yousef Mohammad, Professore of Neurology at  Ohio State University Medical Center  http://www.webmd.com/content/article/124/115523.htm To summarize, Dr. Mohammad has developed a magnetic coil that is applied to the back of the head.  The device takes 15 seconds to charge up and then it administers two magnetic pulses.  When an electrical current runs through a coil, a magnetic field is created.  This easily penetrates into the body, where a portion of the energy is converted back into electrical current (the body being a conductor).  The electrical pulses short-circuit the migraine by halting the uncontrolled firing of neurons on the pain nerve endings of blood vessels surrounding the brain.  Dr. Mohammad is designing a battery-operated device that should be available in 2007.  This concept is actually not new at all.  There are numerous instruments available today (without a prescription) that one could experiment with.  Check the internet for Pulsed Magnetic Therapy and Magnetic Pulsers.


Heartburn Relief


Here's a simple technique for treating and perhaps curing indigestion, heartburn and GERD. These are all manifestations of a similar problem. That is .... digestive juices escape up through the top of the stomach and into the esophagus. As this tissue lacks the protective mucus shield found in the stomach, the result is the typical burning sensation. Sometimes a small part of the stomach pushes up past the diaphram and this is called a hiatal hernia. This situation allows acid reflux to occur as the muscle that normally closes off the esophagus from the stomach (the cardiac sphincter) is not able to close completely. If a part of the stomach is stuck up in the hole of the diaphram, here is how to return it to its proper position. 1) upon rising out of bed in the morning, drink a glass of room temperature water. 2) While standing, bring your arms straight out from your sides and then bend the arms at the elbow so that your hands are touching your chest. 3)Stand up on your toes as high as you can and drop down onto your heels with a pretty firm jolt. Repeat this 10 times in a row. 4) Then, remain standing, with your arms still up and take quick short panting breaths for about 15 seconds. Why does this work? The warm water acts as a weight in the stomach and relaxes it. Spreading your arms out stretches the diaphram and opens up the hole. Dropping down on your heels jerks the stomach out of the hole of the diaphram and rapid breathing tightens up the diaphram muscle to close the hole. Do this exercise every day even after your symptoms have gone away. If this technique does not work for your problem, then you should visit your doctor for a complete evaluation and treatment. Remember that any treatments that aim to temporarily cover up the discomfort of stomach acid can present more problems in the long term as stomach acid is necessary for the proper digestion of food, vitamins, minerals, etc.


Heavy Metal Detox - Lead - Mercury - Aluminum - Iron

When using various methods for detoxing, it is always better to make sure that the toxins that are released by the action of the herbs or supplements, etc. are actually bound up properly for elimination from the body. There are some substances, herbs, foods, chelation formulas, etc. that are very good for releasing the toxins from the tissues, but then they may recirculate in the body because they are not being bound up with a proper binding substance. So, they can sometimes allow the toxins to re-enter the tissues. If your formula does not include a binding element, then you can try using a Pascalite/Bentonite Clay that is exceptional in its absorption properties. The direct source for Pascalite/Bentonite Clay is from Pascalite Inc. PO Box 104, Worland, Wyoming 82401. Tel. 307-347-3872 or www.pascalite.com Typical dosages are from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon daily. Follow the suppliers instructions. Clay is known to have a negative electrical charge, whereas most toxins carry a positive charge, so they are attracted and bind together for effective elimination.

As a note of caution - many of the products that are effective at removing heavy metals or minerals from the body do not discriminate between toxic elements versus beneficial elements, such as calcium. Before starting a program of heavy metal detox, it is advised to get a baseline test of blood, tissue and hair analysis to see if these products are even necessary at all. Then, research each product individually to see which metals, minerals and toxins it binds to in the body, as they do not all have the same capabilities. Work with a health care professional who can monitor your progress so you do not over-do it or waste a lot of money on un-needed supplements. Just because something is "Natural" does not mean it cannot create some problems for over all health.

Iodine - iodine displaces heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, aluminum bromide and fluoride. Why You Need it, Why You Can't Live Without It, 2nd Edition, by Dr. David Browstein, M.D.  Order - (888)647-5616.  Dr. Guy Abraham, former professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and endocrinology at the UCLA School of Medicine has studied Iodine for many years.  He believes the RDA - recommended daily allowance for Iodine is much too low at 150 micrograms per day for adults.  Dr. Abraham recommends an optimum level of 12.5 milligrams per day.  (the average daily intake of Iodine in Japan is 13.8 milligrams).  Heavy Metal detoxing may require temporarily higher loading dosages.  Order Dr. Browstein's book or refer to other competent guidelines before using iodine for detoxing heavy metals.  Doing this the right way will avoid Thyroid health complications, time and money.


Different tissues in the body prefer different forms of Iodine.  For example, the Thyroid Gland concentrates the Iodide form, while the Breasts concentrate the Iodine form.  Therefore, both forms are needed for the body. Sources - Dr. Abraham's formula called - Iodoral - 1 table daily contains 5 milligrams of iodine and 7.5 milligrams of iodide, which is the ideal combination.  This is the same ratio as found in Lugol's Solution (available by prescription only). Iodoral is available from compounding pharmacies, some health stores, and from Tahoma Clinic Dispensary  - (425)264-0051 or http://www.tahoma-clinic.com  Another formula is called Triodide (in liquid form).  Triodid is also available from Tahoma Clinic and some Health Stores.   Triodide  is combined with a sea vegetable called bladderwrack, used to treat thyroid problems. Taking large quantities of iodine for extended periods can suppress thyroid function.  It is important to monitor your Thyroid levels with your physician when using long-term iodine supplementation.

Malic Acid - is a heavy metal chelator that removes aluminum from the brain.  500 milligrams 3 times daily for no longer than 3 weeks. http://www.life-enhancement.com  The ideal dosage as used in medical studies was 24 mg. day.  Length of  patient trials was 3 to 6 months.
Alpha-Lipoic Acid - Mercury Detox - one recommended protocol is: 1/8 to 1/2 mg. of ALA for every pound of body weight, every 3 hours for 3 days and 2 nights. This would equal 20 to 80 mg. of ALA every 3 hours for a 160 pound man. This could be repeated once a year as a maintenance program. To prevent re-absorption of released heavy metals, one can take a supplement of bentonite clays or chlorella (blue-green algae).
Curcumin - is a chelator of iron and copper
(250 to 500mg. day).
Green Tea - the bioflavenoid in green tea called catechin has been shown to reduce iron absorption by over 60 percent.
Iron Detox with IP-6 (Phytic Acid) - IP-6 is derived from rice bran that is known to enhance immune function. It can also effectively bind with heavy metals and minerals including iron, copper, calcium, lead, cadmium and mercury. IP-6 does not remove necessary minerals such as sodium, potassium or magnesium. IP-6 is considered extremely safe. Being a chelating agent, it should not be taken on a long-term basis as this could lead to a deficiency in iron or calcium. Pregnant women, children, or anemic individuals should not take IP-6. Generally recommended dosage is 1,000 to 2,000 mg. daily for 30 to 60 days, between meals. Note: if you are iron anemic, do not use this protocol as IP-6 chelates iron.
MCP - Modified Citrus Pectin - is a powerful chelator of heavy metals including lead, mercury and arsenic. Recommended brand - Pectasol - by EcoNugenics - http://www.pectasol.com

Many people suffer from cold sores that are often brought on by stress, lack of sleep or even some food triggers. The amino acid, Lysine is effective for many people in helping prevent an outbreak and it reduces the healing time. The mineral - Selenium - inhibits virus replication and will suppress herpes. 250 to 300 micrograms twice a day is sufficient. Selenium can be toxic at high doses over 1,500 micrograms daily. Many multi-vitamin and mineral formulas already include some amount of selenium so be aware of total intake. Good natural sources include Brazil Nuts, which contain the highest food source of selenium.

Hemorrhoids

Witch Hazel - will help soothe and shrink the hemorrhoids. Put extract of witch hazel on a wad of cotton and secure to the hemorrhoids at night. If you can't manage this procedure, wipe the affected area with witch hazel. Use until cured. 
Iodine - is very good at eliminating hemorrhoids. We recommend using a form called SSKI (saturated solution of potassium iodide). Since it can cause a burning sensation, use it with a carrier oil such as flaxseed or olive. Mix 20 drops of SSKI in an ounce of oil and apply the solution to the affected area at bedtime. Because iodine stains, wear bed clothes that you won't worry about (your skin will stain, but that will go away).

Insomnia


Melatonin - 1 to 3 milligrams is generally considered a safe dosage to assist getting to sleep.  Your body naturally produces melatonin.  It may even offer anti-cancer protection
L-Typtophan - (a natural Serotonin precursor) up to 1,000 mg. taken about an hour before bedtime

5-HTP - (a Serotonin precursor) - 100 to 200 mg. taken an hour before bedtime.


Blue Light Filtering Glasses - melatonin is the brain hormone that allows us to get a good night's sleep. It is manufactured in the Pineal Gland and the hormone is released under conditions of darkness. Due to artificial lighting, many people have a Melatonin deficiency and have trouble falling asleep. Many people turn to addictive sleep aids for relief of insomnia. Researchers have recently discovered that only the BLUE spectrum of light inhibits Melatonin production. If the blue spectrum is filtered out or blocked up to 3 hours prior to bed time, the brain gets a head start on producing Melatonin for a good night's sleep. This is the concept behind a new product called - Low Blue Light Glasses - . The glasses do give a yellowish tinge to everything, but the advantages over taking addictive drugs should be obvious. Melatonin is getting a lot attention for its role in protecting against cancer, depression and more. There are also lights for the home to replace regular bulbls as well as a blue light filtered panel that is designed for the baby's room. Low Blue Lights - https://www.lowbluelights.com/index.asp

Lyme & Rife Machines - discussion Group on Yahoo - http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Lyme-and-rife/

Taken from Dr. David Williams - Alternatives - newsletter. Dec. 2004 / Vol.10, No.18 - Lyme disease caused by a spirochete, corkscrew-shaped bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb). Testing: Western Blot test - is most widely used. Q-RIBb test is newer, highly accurate and can provide results within 20 minutes.

Treatment: - conventional treatment is with antibiotics.  There is an herbal treatment that has shown more effective than antibiotics.  This is a special form of Cat's Claw under the brand name of Samento by Nutra Medics - www.nutramedics.com. (800-730-3130). Another source is from - Nutricology - www.nutricology.com (800-545-9960).  Their product is called Prima Una de Gato. NOTE: these are special preparations of Cat's Claw that are devoid chemicals called tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids (TOA) that can negate the positive effects of the herb.  Sometimes Cat's Claw is not enough to do the total job and some doctors are adding an extract of Chinese wormwood called - Artemisinin.  Available from Nutricology at www.nutricology.com (800-545-9960).  It is important to seek the assistance of a licensed medical practitioner experienced with Lyme Disease when using these herbs.

Coffee - a recently published medical survey indicates that Coffee appears to reduce the chances of developing alcohol-related Cirrhosis of the Liver.  1 cup per day had beneficial preventive effects, while the largest preventive effect came from 4 cups per day.  The survey results were not considered conclusive enough to make recommendations regarding daily coffee intake and further research was recommended.  Check for various articles on this topic by searching under - liver disease+coffee - or similar search terms.  Remember, coffee is a diuretic and can contribute to cellular de-hydration.  One should not rely exclusively on coffee, tea, fruit juices, sodas, alcohol, etc. for daily water requirements.  Drinking 8 glasses (2qts.) of plain water per day is recommended for proper hydration and functioning of all systems of the body.


Lupus

The late Dr. Chris Reading, an M.D. from Sydney, Australia was able to cure over 500 patients with Lupus (verified with the standard ANA test - Anti-Nuclear Antibody ). Dr. Reading discovered that the trigger for the Lupus in these patients was Gluten sensitivity! an increasingly common food allergy. When patients eliminated ALL wheat and dairy from the diet and they remained completely symptom free. Naturally, Dr. Reading was mercilessly persecuted by Australian medical authorities for daring to deviate from the typical drug treatment protocols. Dr. Reading wrote a book that may still be in print, called - Trace Your Genes to Health -
