Does Lowering Salt intake Prevent Heart attacks?

 

There are conflicting opinions about this subject.  In a NY Times May 15, 2013 article, “No Benefit Seen In Sharp Limits On Salt in Diet” by Gina Kolata, she writes that Study Outcomes have concluded that very low consumption of Sodium has very little benefit in preventing heart attacks.

 Two minerals that keep blood pressure within normal range is Sodium and Potassium.    The dietary guidelines, based upon on the 2005 medicine report, recommend that general population aim for sodium levels (NaCl) levels of 1,500 to2,300 milligrams a day because those levels will not raise blood pressure.    

The minimum biological requirement of sodium is 500 milligrams per day.  Since it’s in a lot of different foods (processed foods), it’s almost impossible to reduce levels to that minimum requirement. Which I would never recommend anyway. The POW’s taken by the Japanese during WW2 were starved and suffered from severe deficiencies…one being Sodium as well as many other minerals and vitamins.  Severe deficiencies can cause paralysis, convulsions and death.   A heat stroke occurs when you sweat out too many minerals, that’s why it’s recommended for athletes to drink electrolytes (minerals).  Anyway, these POW’s who worked on the docks shoveling salt (the inedible type of salt) for 14 backbreaking hours per day would put salt down there pants and while back in the slave camps they would put the salt in metal cans, add water and boil it down. The salt generated from the evaporated water they could then consume.  It was life saving.

 

Along with this problem of sodium overconsumption is the under-consumption of its “antagonist” Potassium. Higher potassium intake helps to lower blood pressure by reducing the effects of sodium.  The recommended amount for adults is 4700 milligrams.

 

Sodium and potassium are necessary for maintaining electrochemical gradients across cell membranes. Sodium is essential for hydration because it pumps water into your cells. Potassium functions in the pumping of byproducts or waste products out of the cell. They really serve as the body’s fluid regulator and waste product regulator.  People who have high blood pressure are usually put on a diuretic, to get the kidneys to pump the excess fluid out of the body to help lower blood pressure.  This never addresses the cause!

As I have repeated many times, your health is about ratios.  The average Americans diet ratio of Sodium to Potassium is 2:1,  two sodium for onepotassium.  When it should be 5 potassium’s to1 sodium.  If the average  American consumes 3,400 milligrams to as high as 4,500 milligrams of salt a day, that would mean you would need to consume many foods rich in Potassium to keep that healthy ratio.    Since sodium makes up about 40% of salt, this amount is about a tea spoon of table salt a day.  And most cardiologist recommend Middle age or older and individuals with high blood pressure should aim to consume no more 1500 milligrams per day but this is now debatable according to a “2008 Study they randomly assigned 232 Italian patients with aggressively treated moderate to severe congestive heart failure to consume either 2,760 or 1,840 milligrams of sodium a day but otherwise to consume the same diet.  Those consuming lower level of sodium had more than three times the number of hospital readmissions – 30 as compared with 9 in the higher-salt group – and more than twice as many deaths – 15 as compared with 6 in the higher-salt group.

 

In another study, published in 2011, followed 28,800 subjects for 4.7 years.  The risk for heart attacks, strokes, congestive heart failure and death increased with those consuming more than 7,000 milligrams of sodium and those consumingfewer than 3,000 milligrams of sodium per day.”

 

Dr. Alderman, a dietary sodium expert at Albert Einstein College of Medicine states as sodium plunge, triglyceride levels increase, insulin resistance increases, and the activity of sympathetic nervous system increases (increased heart rate). Each of these factors increase the risk of heart disease.

 

A simple solution is don’t use normal table salt (NaCl) which affects ratios and use sea salt that also contains 50+ minerals.   And make sure you consume more potassium, Omega 3 fats and stay away from white flour products.

Stop wasting your money on synthetic Vitamins?

We have NEVER biochemically altered a food and made it better for human consumption. Do you think it would be better to consume olive oil from squeezed olives or olive oil that has been biochemically altered in a lab?  If the product is delivered in a form that is NOT FOUND IN NATURE then by definition it cannot be genetically compatible for the humans  because our genetic requirements are based entirely on what is found in nature.

Be aware of the word ‘natural’. ‘Natural’ does NOT mean as it is found in nature. ‘Natural’ means that it is a by-product of something natural. Only ‘naturally occurring’ means that it is in the form found in nature.  Synthetic vitamins  and nutrients  extracted from yeast fall into the category of ‘natural’ because they are a by-product of something found in nature. However, they are NOT naturally occurring and NOT found anywhere in nature.

The same is true for concentrated fish oils or fish oils with altered EPA and DHA fatty acid ratios and fish oils in the ester rather than triglyceride form.  Synthetic vitamins never grew in the ground, were never energized by the sun, and were never part of anything alive. They are chemicals; they are NOT food or nutrients.   

Also be aware the term organic instead of CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Organic is meaningless in terms of   freedom from pesticides, herbicides, GMO foods, synthetic vitamins or synthetic fertilizers. The term organic has nothing to do with being grown, harvested, or processed according to certified organic standards. Many companies use the term organic to deliberately mislead consumers. If there is not a certified organic label on the product   then you know you are being deliberately deceived. Also, companies are allowed to use certified organic ingredients and spike them with synthetic vitamins and still have the product certified organic. Be aware!

Also companies that give a long list of healthy ingredients such as fruits and vegetables but then simply add synthetic vitamins and make label claims based entirely on the synthetic vitamin content and not the fruits and vegetables (because there is so little of the fruits and vegetables in the product – the only thing the long list of fruits and vegetables means is that there is a large variety of fruit and vegetable content in minute amounts). As soon as you see a label that has 100% of the recommended daily allowance of fat soluble vitamins (A,D,E, and K) in a fruit and vegetable product you can be certain that these come from synthetic vitamins – fruits and vegetables contain virtually no fat or fat soluble vitamins (with the exception of vitamin K)!

The research on the consumption of fruits and vegetables is clearly shown to prevent cancer, heart disease, and many other chronic diseases.   However,  the research on vitamins has not been shown to prevent these same diseases.   How is this possible? Once you understand that the vitamin supplementation research that fails to show a benefit does NOT actually study vitamins as they are found in fruits and vegetables. These studies use synthetic vitamins NOT naturally occurring vitamins!  Buy the right vitamins.   Information provided by Dr. James Chestnut.  Attend my nutrition at no charge.

 10 Reasons why the flu shot can be more dangerous than the Flu

Just because your medical doctor is forced to ask if you want the Flu shots by the American Medical Association guide lines doesn’t make getting it effective or a good thing.

1.) There is a total lack of real evidence that young children even benefit from flushots.  A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo.

2.) Medical journals have published thousands of articles revealing that injectingvaccines can actually lead to serious health problems including harmful immunological responses and a host of other infections.

3.) Ever noticed how vaccinated children or adults within days or few weeks develop runny noses, pneumonia, ear infections and bronchiolitis? The reason is the flu virus and chemicals cause immuno-suppression i.e. lowering of the immunity. The flu vaccines actually do not immunize but sensitize the body against the virus.

4.) Flu vaccines contain strains of the flu virus along with other ingredients. And if you have a disease that is already lowering your body’s ability to fight a virus, taking the flu shot will put your body in danger of getting the full effects of the flu and make you more susceptible to pneumonia and other contagious diseases.

5.) The Flu vaccines contain mercury (thimerosol).  The amount of mercury contained in a multi-dose flu shot is much higher than the maximum allowable daily exposure limit. Mercury toxicity can cause memory loss, depression, ADD, oral health problems, digestive imbalances, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases and many more such serious health ailments.

6.) There is mounting evidence that flu shots can cause Alzheimer’s disease.  One report shows that people who received the flu vaccine each year for 3 to 5 years had a 10-fold greater chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease than people who did not have any flu shots.

Can we trust the authorities who are promoting the wide-spread use of flu vaccines?

7.) The Center for Disease Control appoints Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).  This committee is responsible for deciding who should be vaccinated each year.  Almost all the ACIP have a financial interest in immunizations. It’s all about the money and may have very little to do with your health and well being.  The very people pushing these vaccines stand to make billions of dollars.

8.) Research shows that over-use of the flu-vaccine and drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza can actually alter flu viruses and cause them to mutate into a more deadly strain.

9.) There is enough evidence that shows that the ingredients present in the flu vaccinations can actually cause serious neurological disorders.  Flu vaccines can contain many harmful materials including detergent, mercury, formaldehyde, and strains of live flu virus that can cause auto-immune diseases in sensitive individuals.

10.) Trying to guess what strain to vaccinate against each season has proved to be no more effective than a guessing game.

I always take into account “risk” verse “benefit” when deciding what to do.

In my opinion, Vitamin D is great natural way to protect against the flu rather than vaccinations and most likely more effective.

Free at last from Cigarettes!!!

 

If you listen to the radio then you probably have heard of laser treatment for quitting smoking.  The “Just Stop” Laser treatment for Cigarettes has a 60-90% success rate depending upon how serious the patient is about quitting.   Many people would like to quit but cannot due to the extreme nicotine cravings and weight gain.  Well that problem has been fixed due to a new laser treatment and supplement program that helps take away immediately both the cigarette cravings and food cravings within three visits.

 

“Just Stop” laser program is a 3 visit protocol that requires no additional visits or ongoing maintenance.  The laser is designed to calm down the nervous system and get the nicotinic receptors back to a state of balance.  Every time you smoke, you stimulate nicotinic receptors and feel the need to smoke over and over again in order to keep the receptors in an over stimulated state.  “The smokers high”.  The laser gets your body to become o.k with the normal state of nicotinic receptors, therefore you don’t crave a puff .   The second visit works on all the different brain transmitters which smoking affects like Acetylcholine, Acetyl-CoA, Acetylcholinesterase, Nor-epinephrine, L-Dopa, Dopamine, acetaldehyde and others.  Visit three work to detox and recondition the body to be o.k with the substances found in cigarettes like cigarette lighter fluid, Tar, cigarette smoke, acetone, ammonia, arsenic, benzene, butane, cadmium, formaldehyde, hydrogen cyanaminde, lead, methanol, polonium, toluene and others.

Within weeks of quitting, ex-smokers start to feel much better. Their senses of taste and smell return.  Their cough goes away and they notice improved energy.  They get rid of bad breath and the smoky smell on their clothes and hair.   When you choose to quit you improve your chances of a longer, healthier life.  The best part, you don’t gain the weight because the laser rebalances the neurotransmitters so you don’t feel stressed.   Less stress means you don’t crave sugars and fats.

Facts; 24 HOURS after quitting Blood pressure and pulse rate may drop.  48
HOURS after quitting Carbon monoxide level in the blood may return to normal. 2 TO
12 WEEKS after quitting circulation may improve and lung function can increase.  1
YEAR after quitting excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a
smoker’s.  10+ YEARS after quitting risk of lung cancer death is half that of a smoker’s.  15+ YEARS after quitting Risk of stroke and coronary heart disease is that of a nonsmoker’s.

The Ugly Truth about Sugar-Free Products

Different ad campaigns have tried to convince people that High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) is good and natural because it’s made from corn.  But did you know that when this grain metabolizes into sugar it causes a huge spike in blood sugar, thus requiring an outpouring of insulin from the overworked pancreas.  This is one of the major contributors to the increase in type II diabetes

The USDA estimates about one-quarter of the calories consumed by Americans is in the form of HFCS.  The average Westerner consumes 142 pounds a year of sugar, and the products most people rely on to lose weight (low-fat diet foods) are often the ones highest in fructose.   “Over 10 weeks, 16 volunteers on a controlled diet including high levels of HFCS produced new fat cells around their heart, liver and other digestive organs. They also showed signs of food-processing abnormalities linked to diabetes and heart disease. Another group of volunteers on the same diet, but with glucose sugar replacing fructose, did not have these problems.”

When you eat fructose from corn, 100 percent of the metabolic burden rests on your liver.  But with table sugar (glucose), your liver has to break down only 20 percent because every cell in your body, including your brain, utilizes glucose.  When you eat 120 calories of glucose, less than one calorie is stored as fat, unlike 120 calories of fructose results in 40 calories being stored as fat.  The metabolism of fructose taxes your liver and creates waste products and toxins, including uric acid, which increases blood pressure and causes gout. 

Glucose also suppresses the hunger hormone ghrelin and stimulates leptin, which suppresses appetite.  Artificial sweeteners and sugar free/diet products lack the above; therefore not satisfy your hunger and making it harder to lose weight.   

Deceptive Advertisements mislead the public and drive people to assume that sugar-free products and natural mean less weight.  In 2006, Cadbury Schweppes was threatened with a lawsuit for labeling 7Up as “All Natural” or “100% Natural”, despite de presence of HFCS and on January 2007, they agreed to stop calling it “All Natural”.  They now label it “100% Natural Flavors.”  Sugar free products might not have sucrose but have “natural” fructose (HFCS).  A 2005 study reported that some HFCS manufactured in the U.S. contained trace amounts of mercury.  It appeared to come from caustic soda and hydrochloric acid (chemicals used in the manufacture of HFCS)  

I use raw sugar, honey or organic cane sugar.  Four teaspoons per day in your coffee is isn’t the cause of your weight or health issues.  If you only drink pure water and 50% of your everyday diet is fruit and vegetables, 40% is grass fed animal meat, and only 10% grain per day, you will get to ideal weight in not time.  Of course you need to avoid all artificial sweeteners, and anything containing HFCS.

Why mineral balance is important for maintaining a healthy body?

Minerals and Vitamins are essential for health but I like to compare minerals to oxygen and vitamins to water.  You can live without water longer than oxygen, just as you can live a lot longer without vitamins than minerals.     

About 5% of every cell of the body contains minerals, which act as a coenzyme for the proper function of muscles, nerves and cells of the body.  Severe deficiencies although very rare can cause paralysis, convulsions and death.  E.g. a heat stroke occurs when you sweat out too many minerals, that’s why it’s recommended for athletes to drink electrolytes (minerals).  However, most people do suffer slight deficiencies contributing to heart disease, osteoporosis, aneurisms and premature aging. 

There are two types of minerals: Macro and Micro.  Macro minerals are needed in amounts greater than 100 milligrams: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, chloride and potassium.  Micro minerals (trace minerals) are needed in amounts less than 100 milligrams:   examples are iron, zinc, iodine, selenium, copper, manganese, selenium and chromium.  

Never take trace minerals with milk because milk blocks the absorption of the above trace minerals.  Take minerals with a non-dairy protein meal for the fact that you need a lot of stomach acid to ionize minerals and the acid helps break them down for better intestinal absorption.  Chelated minerals (combined with amino acids) absorb 40%.  Metallic minerals (a rock) absorb 10%.  Colloidal minerals absorb around 90% because the plant absorbed the minerals (tastes like dirt).  

Many conditions are related to imbalances in minerals such as high blood pressure.  Salt should contain 80 minerals, however, table salt is sodium chloride (NaCl), which if consumed in large quantities causes imbalances.  Avoid NaCl and take real sea salt, which contains 50+ minerals (helps with cardiovascular health).  

One sign of a mineral imbalance are white spots on the finger nails (sign of a zinc deficiency).  Another mineral imbalance is kidney stones.  M.D’s suggested to avoid calcium.  However, research has proven kidney stones are not caused from too much calcium but a calcium deficiency.  When a person is dehydrated and deficient in calcium and/or has an acidic body pH (consuming too much meat, grain, dairy) this causes calcium to be taken from the bones in order to maintain calcium balance.  It’s this calcium taken from the bones that binds with oxalates and urates in the kidneys that form stones.  With a calcium rich diet, the calcium would have normally binded with the urates and oxalates in the intestines instead of the kidney, thus preventing stones. Prevent stones by drinking 50% of your body weight in ounces of water per day, eat 50% vegetables (calcium rich) and take a few hundred milligrams of calcium per meal.

      

Understanding how to increase our Life Expectancy

Aging is good, unless your body degenerates early and you can no longer be active.  The cause of premature aging is toxicity and deficiency, which affects gene expressions that lead to sickness NOT faulty genes.  Unlike modern Americans, our ancestors rarely died from life style diseases: cancer, diabetes, heart disease or suffered from diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic fatigue, low fertility, or depression.   

Why do people live longer today than 110 years ago? Most people think it’s because of medications. Wrong!  Research shows the reason we live longer today is due to sanitation, refrigeration and dentistry.   The number one cause of death 110 years ago was infections and today’s cleaner living prevents most of them and of the few infections from bacteria or trauma that do turn potentially deadly, we can give credit to antibiotics.  But medications are not the reason for increased life expectancy.   

The number of Japanese people living past 100 reached a record high of 36,000 in 2008.   Mr. Tanabe, who was born on 1895, was the world’s oldest man who recently died at the age of 113.  The younger populations will not live as long because they’ve adopted early on a Western diet: over consumption of milk, meat, white flour products and chemically processed foods.  Mr. Tanabe and other centenarians’ diets were mostly vegetables, berries, starchy foods (brown rice) and small amounts of fish, poultry and grass fed cattle.

Cell division determines aging rate.  You’re born with a number of cells that continuously divide, photocopying their DNA.  Think of photocopying a piece of paper. The photocopy is never as good as the original.  These same cells then divide again and another photocopy is made from the photocopy and so on.  What happens after 120 years of cell divisions? The quality of the photocopy is so poor that the body cannot read the recipes for life within the DNA, which causes organ failure and you die of old age. 

The average life expectancy is 78 years of age instead of 120 because anything that speeds up the rate of cell division also speeds up the aging rate.  Whenever a person eats, thinks or moves in ways that are genetically incongruent to the body’s needs, there’s an increase of stress, which increases the rate of cell division, speeding up the aging rate.  Imagine we lived today like our ancestors lived 100+ years ago but had the advantages of modern technology.  We would all be living well and active into our 90’s without disabilities.  Unfortunately, we adopted a new life style that includes preservatives and hormones in foods, a high calorie diet and a sedentary life style, promoting toxins and vitamin deficiencies, speeding up cell division.

Why is Stress the Silent Killer?

Why does your pulse, blood pressure, cholesterol and insulin levels increase and your immune system decreases under stress?  Imagine you’re attacked by a Tiger:  your nerve system perceives a threat, which immediately raises blood pressure, pulse and heart rate (your muscles need oxygen to fight or run) and down regulates the immune system to conserve energy for fighting and running. 

Then, your body produces stress hormones, Cortisol, which regulates blood sugar… key to controlling weight.  Cortisol increases insulin resistance by regulating organ cell receptors from allowing sugar to get into the cells.  Why?  Muscles need more energy to fight or run.  Organs are secondary.  Cortisol causes the liver to breakdown glycogen into sugar and it promotes the breakdown of proteins into sugar.  This is a catabolic (breakdown) state, not anabolic (growth state).  We want to survive the moment and we need energy.  

What’s the difference between the hunter gatherer and the modern American?  The hunter gatherer moves all day using all that excess sugar in the blood stream.  The modern American sits around all day, using no energy and converting glucose into fat cells, causing the pancreas to produce more insulin in an attempt to get rid of the toxic sugar.   The problem with too much blood glucose (sugar) is that the body produces more insulin (diabetes), which is one of the great stimulators of the stress response.  Thus, the best defense against stress is MOVEMENT, not drugs.

In addition, Cortisol inhibits the uptake of LDL cells in the liver and stops producing HDL, increasing total cholesterol while one is under stress.  Cholesterol is a precursor to make stress hormones and gives an adaptive advantage.

Why do you crave fats and sweets?  Fats are needed to make stress hormones and sugar is needed for energy.  Hunter gatherers ate nuts and meat for fat cravings and fruit for sugar.  Today’s man eats candy, ice cream, cookies and unhealthy saturated fats, which spike sugar levels, promoting insulin production, which promotes more cortisol, more insulin resistance (vicious cycle).    

The body was genetically designed to miss meals, but not to over eat white flour products and sit for eight hours a day.  Unfortunately, the body can hardly discern between a tiger and a donut and when we eat genetically incongruent foods, the body produces stress hormones in order to give an adaptive advantage to survive the moment.  However, if you’re chronically stressed, these same hormones will kill you in the long run and cause conditions such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, infertility, etc.  What pill could ever solve a problem created by too much eating and too little movement? No pill.  

History of Heart Disease

Nearly half of all Americans die of heart attacks.  A century ago no such pathology was recognized nor did it even have a name.  The first reported heart attack occurred in 1896 and several years later the first write up on heart attacks appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine.  The article was devoted to this rare condition that named it “myocardial infarct.”  Paul Dudley White, M.D., a famous heart specialist in the mid twentieth century said, “When I graduated from medical school in 1911, I had never heard of coronary thrombosis.”

One hundred years have passed and we’ve come a long way.  Half of us are dying from heart attacks and strokes, which is easily preventable by simply changing the terrible practices that have become our conventional way of life.  Is it the eating of too much cholesterol and saturated Fat?   Is it too much “stress” in our lives? 

Drug companies have pounded into our brains that the only hope is a pill.  If cholesterol is the cause and cholesterol drugs are the answer, then why is heart disease still the number one killer in the United States?  Well, maybe if we give it to our children, then maybe it will prevent heart attacks or strokes.  But as of now, according to the double blind studies, Statin drugs are useless in preventing heart attacks and strokes. You just die of heart attack or stroke with a lower cholesterol number.

What about stress?   100 years ago many people worked like slaves just to provide minimal food, clothing, shelter and sanitation.   Presently, our standard of living has increased so dramatically that nothing we face remotely resembles the real physical stress that our ancestors faced.  We would more accurately be described as physical stress deprived.  In my opinion, this 180 degree life style change is the single greatest cause for diabetes, heart disease, cancer and depression.  Sitting all day is the most hazardous thing a person can do for their health. 

Besides lack of movement, the six nutritional changes that have occurred in the last 100 hundred years are direct causes of cardiovascular disease:
1. Chlorination and fluoridation of drinking water.
2. The demineralization of our drinking water.
3. Increase in consumption of sugar and other refined white flour products.
4. Increase consumption of hydrogenated oils and lack of Omega 3 fats.
5. The homogenization of milk.  (dead milk)
6. The trace mineral depletion of our soil and thus our food.

These can easily be reversed if you go to a doctor who focuses on deficiencies and toxicities, not only symptoms.

               Allergies, Stuffy nose and Congestion…..What’s the Cause?

Madelyn, 10, woke up every morning tired and severely congested.  Her condition improved throughout the day but the symptoms always returned upon going to bed.  Ruled out deviated septum and acute infection. What’s the cause? 

There are two types of allergies;   IgE’s are immediate allergic reactions, which occur within twenty minutes after exposure and cause 5% of all allergies and represent 95% of all doctor visits.  IgG’s are delayed allergic reactions that occur about one to three days after exposure and cause 95% of all allergies/conditions.  Most people are unaware that something they drink, eat, rub on their skin or breath in could be the cause of sinusitis, eczema, migraines, auto-immune, depression, anxiety, ADHD, weight problems, stomach problems, asthma, sinus drip or mucous/sicknesses or a chronic stress response.  

Allergists test immediate allergic reactions via a scratch/blood test to identify the substance, but don’t test for delayed allergic reactions.  A new technology, the BAX 3000 laser from BioAllergenix tests over 60,000 substances housed in its database.  It doesn’t specifically tests for antibodies/allergies; but frequencies of substances that cause a stress response to the nerve system which can affect the immune system.  It works similarly to a lie detector measuring the autonomic nerve system’s response. 

Due to Madelyn’s history, I treated her for the main food groups: egg, dairy, vitamins, minerals, wheat, etc.  As well as everything the test picked up, everything her mother believed was causing the problem and everything I believed could contribute to her problem.  I treated for dust mites based upon her problem improved when she was out of the house but became worse only when she was in bed.  I recommended dust mite barriers, new pillow, instructed mom how to kill dust mites.  However, she was not better.   We tested the third procedure (100’s of environmental and house hold products); interestingly the test revealed feather mix, goose feathers, bleaches and bug spray.  The mother was surprised: “I use bleach to wash her white bed sheets all the time.”  She was treated with the laser for these substances and at the same time the mother stopped using bleach and switched to all natural, chemically-free house hold detergents and cleaners.  Bingo…Bleach!  Madelyn no longer wakes up tired or with severe mucous in the morning and is medication free!  

If your allergies are caused by tree pollens, food (milk, peanuts, etc.), chemicals, latex, medications, we can test and help recondition the autonomic nerve system through neurological reconditioning to not react when exposed to substance.   The BAX 3000 technology is not concerned with symptom, just the stress that researchers believe trigger the symptoms. Symptomatic relief experienced by patients is a result of stress reduction.

Do you have Shingles?  Try Laser technology!

Herpes zoster (shingles) is an adult version of the chicken pox, but it can be tremendously painful for months and in some cases debilitating if it affects the eyes or brain.   Herpes zoster typically manifests as a rash on one side of the body which follows a specific nerve pathway.  Want an alternative besides medication?  There is a new medical miracle device called the BAX 3000 laser that helps eliminate shingles and all allergies.   

Last week, Evan B. traveled 45 minutes just to be treated with the BAX 3000.  A week prior, his doctor diagnosed him with shingles and prescribed pain medication, but Evan was still in severe pain a week later.  At the consultation, I told him: “we do not treat shingles or symptoms of allergies.  Drugs treat symptoms, we treat the cause of the symptoms.  The BAX 3000 laser is a device that helps recondition the nerve system to no longer react inappropriately to a substance such as herpes zoster, virus, bacteria, yeast, foods (i.e. eggs, dairy, peanuts.)”  He replied, “I am in severe pain and would try anything at this time.”  Unlike drugs, the laser treatments are safe, painless and without side effects and only take 10 minutes.  I also recommended that Evan avoid sodas, vitamin C, potatoes or potato chips and tomatoes because they could exacerbate his shingles.  The next day he happily told me, “the pain and itching are gone on the areas you treated and the rash is going away.”  

What did we do?  95% of allergies or conditions can be delayed allergic responses; you eat a food today and get a reaction one to three days later, which causes your allergy or symptom.    If your body detects a substance in the environment as “harmful or foreign,” it causes your autonomic nerve system to over-react which then causes an over reactive immune system to create symptoms.   With the BAX 3000 technology, we can test and identify what food or environmental substances are stressing your autonomic nerve system and treat you with a class III laser, which carries the digital frequencies of the offending substances in a homeopathic dose (i.e. herpes zoster) into the meridian points of the body.  Dr. Johnson calls it “re-conditioning,” the body has been permanently fooled into thinking that the once offending allergen or substance is no longer a threat.  In Evan’s case, once his body was conditioned with Herpes Zoster, his immune system calmed down which took away the inflammation and pain.    

Since purchasing the device in May, Dr. Johnson has successfully treated more than 50 patients all of whom either have dramatically reduced their symptoms or eliminated their allergy.  Besides helping Evan with shingles, we have helped patients who had dairy, dust mite, pollen, gluten allergies to name a few.  “The goal is to dramatically improve the tolerance to things one is allergic to.”

Anti-Premature aging

Aging is good, unless your body degenerates prematurely and you can no longer be active.  The cause of premature aging is toxicity and/or deficiency, which affects gene expressions that lead to sickness NOT faulty genes.  Unlike modern Americans, our ancestors and tribes did not die from life style diseases such as, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, stroke or suffered from diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic fatigue, low fertility, or depression. 

The number of Japanese people living past 100 is reaching a record high of 36,000 in 2008.  A great example of anti-premature aging is Mr. Tanabe, who was born on September 18, 1895.  He was the world’s oldest man who recently died at the age of 113.  His meals included fried shrimp and Miso soup with clams, and avoided alcohol and cigarettes.  Unfortunately, the younger generations will not live as long because of an over consumption of milk, unhealthy meat, high grain and heavily chemically processed foods.  Our older generations’ diets consisted primarily of fish, vegetables, berries, and starchy foods (brown rice.) 

Cell division is what determines the aging rate.  People are born with a number of cells that continuously divide, photocopying their DNA, however, the photocopy is never as good as the original.  These same cells then divide again and another photocopy is made from the photocopy and so on.  So, what happens after 120 years of cell divisions? The quality of the photocopy is so poor that the body cannot read the recipes for life within the DNA, which eventually causes organ failure and you die of old age. 

The average life expectancy is 78 years of age instead of 120 because anything that speeds up the rate of cell division also speeds up the rate of aging.  Whenever a person eats, thinks or moves in ways that are genetically incongruent to the body’s needs, there is an increase of stress, which increases the rate of cell division, which then speeds up the rate of aging.    Cigarettes, processed grains, hormones in foods and a high calorie diet which promotes high insulin levels in the blood are few examples that speed up cell division.  Illness is not due to aging but bioaccumulation of toxins, the only correlation to aging is arthritis (caused from a repetitive stress on the joints.)  However, aging alone does not make a person sick, they are sick because of toxicity and deficiency.

Aging in an excuse that doctors use to justify medication, thus, stop asking your doctor “what do I have, what do I need to take,” instead start asking, “what am I deficient in or toxic with that is causing my body to malfunction?” 

A Migraine sufferer’s story


I heard the most remarkable first hand account of a woman’s experience with migraines.  This is her story… She tells Dr. Douglas, (my colleague and the person who taught me everything about Bio-Energetic medicine) I hear you are a miracle worker and an expert in getting rid of migraine headaches.  I’ve had one migraine headache in my life but it has lasted 10 years.  I take Imitrex for the migraines but my doctor tells me I can no longer take the medication because it is causing liver failure.  I am miserable, I cannot go out, see my friends or do any thing normal and if you cannot help me I am going to kill myself.  Dr. Douglas then proceeds to do a thorough history which reveals her migraines started a few months after she got married (do not make a joke).  The history questions are specifically geared to investigate what food she eats, what beverages she drinks, what lotions, creams or perfumes she puts on her skin or what chemicals she breaths in.  To make a long story short, he asks her what she eats every day and then asks her what her husband eats every day.  She explains that her husband is a workout fanatic and eats egg whites everyday.  She states she eats egg whites every few days but not as much as her husband.  He immediately narrowed down that egg whites caused her headaches but confirmed it with the other test in the office using the Bax 3000.  Dr. Douglas concluded that what she had was a hidden allergic response to egg whites and cured her Migraine headaches in one visit.

95% of all allergies are “delayed reaction allergies” that occur one to three days later.  Most allergists concentrate on the allergies that occur right away.  For example, you eat a peanut or pollen gets on your skin and immediately or within 20 minutes your face swells up or your eyes tear.  “Immediate reaction allergies” represent only 5% of all allergies but represent 90% of all allergist visits.  However, delayed reaction allergies of unknown origin cause some of the worst conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), eczema, asthma, celiac, Attention deficit (ADD), anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, infertility, sinusitis, autism, snoring, sleep apnea, and blood sugar problems.  

Fortunately, this story had a happy ending, not only did the patient find out the cause of her migraines but she was also treated with the Bax 3000, which re-educated and re-balanced her nerve system to no longer react to egg whites.  That’s right, she can eat eggs… I know it sounds unbelievable but I promise you this technology and technique works.  In our office, we follow the same protocols, take the same history and use the same technology that worked for this migraine sufferer.

EAT YOUR INSECTS
On May 2009, Popular Science magazine published an article named “Eat your Insects”, “Strawberry yogurt, maraschino cherries and fake crabmeat all share an odd ingredient, their red dye comes from crushed female cochineal beetles.  Consumer advocates argue that companies should include the ingredient on food labels because of rare, yet potentially fatal, allergic reactions.  The FDA currently classifies the bug extracts as “artificial color” on food labels, but its new ruling requires companies to list the insect by name beginning in 2011.”  Red dye, yellow dye or some other chemical or preservative in our foods or beverages could cause fatal reactions but more then likely it will cause a delayed allergic reaction leading to headaches, irritable bowel, sinusitis, anxiety, depression, ADHD, Obsessive compulsive disorders, chronic fatigue, fibro-myalgia, etc.  Make sure to check labels on foods and if you cannot pronounce it, then avoid it.

Very often I hear, “doctor I am allergic to cats,”  “I am allergic to milk,” “I am allergic to peanuts.”  But in reality you could be allergic to the cat litter, cat food or cat urine.  As for the milk, you could be allergic to bovine growth hormone or antibiotics, or even the pesticides on peanuts.

With a detailed history and the Bax 3000, I am able to identify what substances your nerve system is reacting inappropriately to.  This is done by hooking clips to your middle fingers to monitor your nerve system reactions to digital frequencies of known substances.  The BAX 3000 houses over 70,000 substances in its database, so if your problem is caused by something you eat, drink, rub on your skin or breath, this technology will detect them.  I do not treat the symptoms of allergies, but rather the cause.  Drugs, shots and creams treat allergies.  I treat the nerve system’s inappropriate response to normal substances with bio-energetic healing, which is a computerized laser treatment that reconditions the nerve system to no longer perceive substances as “harmful.”  Patients report that after being treated with the BAX 3000, their wheat, dairy, and peanut allergies were completely gone.

SOLUTION TO ALLERGIES

I suffered with hives on my body every morning for one month.  My condition disappeared after leaving the house but always returned at night.   I believed I had dust mite allergy and confirmed it with a scratch test. The allergist solution was medication and shots.  I told him, “You can’t fix the cause by treating the symptom.” He replied, “But you feel better temporarily.”   I eliminated the cause by cleaning the pillows, couches and beds and added a plastic pillow and mattress cover.   Dust mites are living creatures that produce waste that bacteria love to eat.  The dust mite eats the bacteria and dead skin cells.  This gives new meaning to a dirty pillow.  My dust mite allergy cleared up and never returned.

Why did I react to dust mites but my family did not?
What can you do if you cannot figure out the cause of your symptoms?

I reacted to dust mites because my nerve system inappropriately perceived dust mites as “harmful”, instead of “harmless”.  My family’s nerve system reacted normally to dust mites.   People who have allergies to peanuts, milk, pollen, etc. is directly due to the nerve system incorrectly perceiving a threat, causing hives, runny nose or  worse an allergy related asthma, eczema, ADD, IBS, sinusitis, depression, psoriasis, chronic fatigue.  Allergies that people get immediately represent 5% of all allergies.  Delayed reaction allergies represent 95% of all allergies, meaning a person might eat, drink, inhale, or rub a substance on there skin today but not get a symptom for three days.

If you suffer, you can do a skin or blood test.  This identifies immediate reaction allergies, not delayed allergic reactions.   I suggest an elimination diet.  Avoid dairy products, grain, and eggs from the diet for one month.  If symptoms disappear, then you know!  You could try a revolutionary new technology called the Bax 3000 that helps identify over 70,000 substances that could be causing your delayed allergic reaction.  The Bax 3000 measures your nerve systems reaction to hundreds of digital substances, similar to how a lie detector measures your nerve system.   This laser technology helps eliminate a person’s allergy by sending digital frequencies of the allergen into the allergy meridians of the body, which changes the bodies association of known allergens from “harmful” back to “harmless”.  This re-conditioning of the nerve system is the key to eliminating the allergy.   This technology is replacing the old, outdated practices of treating symptoms with drugs, but never addressing the cause.  For more information call our office. We would be happy to help guide you to an allergy free life.
