Boron – Is it Healthy?

Boron (pronounced BO-ron) is an element discovered in 1808.  It has many uses including pyrotechnics and flares.  An isotope (Boron 10) is a good absorber of neutrons and is used in control rods of reactors, as a radiation shield and as a neutron detector.

Boron has many uses including a detergent booster (Borax), and is an ingredient in making borosilicate glass. 

But, are their any uses for human health?  YUP!

In fact we can use Borax (Sodium Tetraborate, hexahydrate or sodium borate ) as a source of Boron to improve health.

From, sources provided:

A limited amount of boron is absolutely essential for good health. Here are some of its properties (at different concentrations):

  • Protect’s you from Fluorides. Borax protects against the accumulation of fluorides in the body; is effective as an antidote in fluoride toxicity; and can remove fluorides from the body. (1,2,3,4,5,20)
  • Anti-microbial. Borax is toxic to insects, parasites, protozoa and bacteria.
  • Fungicide. Effective against moulds and fungi, internally and externally. (17,18)
  • Anti-viral.
  • Hormone normaliser. Stimulates the production of hormones, stabilises estrogen, assists with insulin use and blood glucose control, triglyceride use and production of reactive oxygen. With boron sufficiency, blood serum triglyceride levels are significantly lower. (12) Estrogen replacement therapy may not be necessary. (13,16)
  • Immune system enhancer. (12) Promotes healing of wounds. (14)
  • Reduction and control of inflammation. (14,16)
  • Aphrodisiac for men and women. See low libido. Boron stimulates the production of DHT and testosterone (14,16) and normalises oestrogen.
  • Toxin removal. Chelator / protection from heavy metals. (8)
  • Stabiliser of calcium, silicon, copper and magnesium levels, inhibits calcification. (12). Boron sufficiency normalises calcium levels, preventing both abnormal calcium deposition and bone weakness. (12,13,14) Boron sufficiency inhibits the accumulation of inorganic copper in the bones (12) and prevents loss of bone. (13) Boron assists with the assimilation of various minerals, particularly calcium and silicon. Those with insufficient boron in their diets may suffer a variety of bone, skin and connective tissue ailments. Insufficient body silicon is associated with rapid aging.
  • Mental enhancement. Improves attention, both short and long term memory, perception, hand-eye coordination, and manual dexterity. (12,14)

Borax as a remedy

Borax has successfully been used as a remedy for a variety of ailments. (7,9,10,12,13,14,15,16) You can use it for both prevention and treatment.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis. This is an inflammatory autoimmune disease where the body attacks its own joints, causing degeneration and deformity. It is more common in women, and can occur at any age. Often it develops into osteoarthritis. Work by Prof Roger Wyburn-Mason identified an amoeba in the joint as the cause in certain susceptible people. Boron is an effective cure. (14,15)
  • Osteoarthritis is a wearing away of the joints, particularly those that have been subject to trauma, infection or over-use when injured. It is more common in men. The cartilage or tough fibrous matter around the joint wears away and the bones rub against each other, causing pain and and further permanent damage to the joint. (14,15)
  • Osteoporosis (decalcification of the bones) or osteopenia. (12,13,14)
  • Other bone and connective tissue diseases such as Dupuytren’s disease.
  • Blood lipid disorders, hypertension (high blood pressure), arterial diseases. (12,14)
  • Obesity.
  • Cancer. (6,14,19) Boron may be a preventative for prostate cancer.
  • Swollen gums or loose teeth (pyorrhoea). This is a bit like arthritis of the teeth and gums.
  • Antiseptic. Very effective for bladder infection and urinary tract infection (UTI). (17) For other infections apply topically or take internally diluted to the recommended dose.
  • Spondylitis (arthritis of the spine with inflammation in the joints). Calcium is lost from the spinal vertebrae, leading to fusion and disc degeneration. Spondylitis responds to mineral treatments, particularly boron.
  • Gout. Boron is an effective remedy.
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus.

In the USA you can purchase 20 Mule Team Borax at most grocery stores.  You should check the label and avoid any added ingredients or scents.

My wife and I started taking this as a “concentrate” made by adding a teaspoon of Borax to one quart of water.  Let it fully dissolve, then take one teaspoon of the liquid with meals 2 or 3 times a day.  You can take higher doses to handle conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, joint pain, and muscle cramps.

For fungal infections (including candida), mycoplasma, and removing fluoride – take 14 teaspoons of the concentrate daily.

So you see that taking something that is natural and inexpensive, like Borax, can be beneficial to our health!

Since we just started taking this, I will update in a few months, to review our changes!

An Operating Manual for the Human?

MAN bookThese days everything comes with a operating manual that explains how to use the item, how to care for it, and who to call if you are experiencing a problem with it.  But alas, humans are not provided with such a manual!  So, what to do?

Well, short of writing your own manual, we just have to learn how our bodies speak to us, and what it is saying.  You see, better than a manual that you must actually read, the human body gives us signs when maintenance is required (kinda like some modern cars).  The trick is to understand what these message are and how to interpret them.

One obvious message is PAIN!  Well this serves it’s purpose, but wouldn’t it be nice to have known way ahead of time that the pain in your kidney was due to a stone?!  If you did, you could have done something about it and prevented the stone, and the PAIN!

One such method is to look at the tongue, it has a lot of information about what’s going on in the body,

tongue-twistersas you can see in the image below, according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM):

tongue-chartOther areas include the eyes, the face, the ears, the fingernails, live and dried blood samples,and the fine lines on the bottom of the feet!

The crease in the ear lobe may indicate cardio issue

The crease in the ear lobe may indicate cardio issue

All these parts of the body can tell us what the body is dealing with, most without any symptoms.  They can also show us what genetic weakness we have so we know what to pay attention to BEFORE we develop symptoms!

Good blood


Blood showing rouleau



Fingernail showing circulatory issues



Feet showing possible stomach and colon problems

The top 2 images are of the blood.  The top pic is normal, the next is a condition called rouleau, where the cells tack up like a roll of coins.  This makes it hard for the cells to get through the capillaries! There are MANY indications in the blood!

The fingernail picture shows a woman who only has “moons” on her thumbnail.  You should have them on all fingers, except for the pinkies.  This indicates a circulatory issue in the extremities.

The bottom of the feet will show fine lines that are not due to creases, and will indicate what organs are experiencing difficulties. It can show the presence of parasites as well.

The spots colors and patterns all have a meaning.

The lines of the Sclera

The eye is also a wealth of info.  The iris shows information (spots and shapes) regarding the genetic tendencies as well as issues due to stress.  The sclera (whites of the eye) express their info in the red lines.  Where they are located and how they are shaped tell us things that are currently going on.

An indication in one part may not show much,  however if multiple areas point to the same issue, you can almost be sure that  something should be done to mitigate it!

So, we can see that the body gives us a wealth of information regarding it’s status, that we can “read” and act on to give us the best health possible. These are some of the procedures that we use at our wellness center, to get people back on track to regaining heir health.  And we accomplish this without pharmaceuticals!

Magnesium – Not Just For Cars!


When I was a young man, I new magnesium was an element and I associated it with Mag-wheels used for hot cars!   Little did I know that magnesium is a very important nutrient for the human body.

Magnesium is one of the nutrients that are required for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythm, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation. Magnesium is one of the most common global deficiencies and it plays a role in correcting many of the more common health issues facing people each day.  Magnesium deficiency plays a major role in many diseases, possibly more than any other nutrient.

More than half the population are not getting what they require on a daily basis.  It has become more critical nowadays because our bods’ need it to help in the detoxification process, and we all know how toxic our environment has gotten over the last few decades!

There are many links between magnesium deficiency and the disease state:

  • Mitral valve prolapse
  • Cardiac arrythmias
  • Migraines
  • ADHD
  • Autism
  • Anxiety
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Chronic Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Insomnia
  • Twitching & tremors
  • Swelling/edema
  • Weak pulse
  • Brain fog/confusion
  • Osteoporosis
There should be a 1:1 ratio between calcium and magnesium, but the ratio among the population is more like 5:1 up to 15:1!  This is leading us all down the path to an unbalanced disease state.

Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil

My wife and I use “Magnesuim Oil”, a product by “Ancient Minerals, LLs Magnetic Clay”,  it’s very easy to use and is good for many things such a sore muscles, and we even use it for a deodorant!  It comes as a spray, a gel, a lotion, or as flakes to put in a bath.  Much like Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) but the affects are longer lasting with Magnesium Oil (magnesium chloride).   It’s a great experience, and very calming to the muscles!
By the way, even though it says OIL it is NOT!  It mixes very well with water.
Good food sources of magnesium include grass fed dairy products, pumpkin seeds, raw cacao, unrefined sea salt, avocados, sea veggies and wild caught fish, and using supplementation is an excellent way to insure that you get what you need!

Lasers To Implement Health!

We have recently added another tool in our arsenal  – an Induction Laser, also referred to as Low Level Light Therapy.

The New Tool

The New Tool

This is truly a unique combination of ancient information and new technology!  The first working laser was developed in 1960.  First laser

Laser treatment offers a very unique way to present information to the body.  The body is a “light body” (actually a crystalline substructure) and when we are able to present information to the body through the light, the body receives it in a way that is very profound and unique, and it responds exceptionally well!  Now lasers are quite small because they a solid state, and use much smaller amounts of power.

Laser diode

 Our new Aura PTL II laser is utilized for a variety of health applications, from easing chronic pain, to mitigating skin problems, allergies, weight control, and even to stop smoking!  The laser itself can be used as an acupuncture needle to stimulate various points on the body (with no needles!).   But this laser combines various carrier frequencies (carrier waves enable the transmission of information such as radio) with certain frequencies riding on it.  These various frequencies represent many items of our world such as types of foods, allergy causing substances, and nutritionals.

There are about 130,000 items, that are placed in 74 programs that available thru the PTL Laser therapy ranging from sensitivities that balance the body and helps the body reset itself so it does not continue to respond to things inappropriately like pollens, foods, environmental, animals, etc., to sleep issues, stress, pain, nerve issues, hormones, and the list goes on and on!  By communicating these frequencies (that the body has lost, due to trauma or illness) the body can deal with these issues effectively.

We use these programs in various combinations to help our clients get well.  The treatments can be for 5 to 30 minutes (depending on the programs utilized) and are completely non-invasive and pain free.  Treatment plans can be anywhere from 3 to 12+ visits.  As an example the Stop Smoking protocol treatment is only 3 visits, with compatible supplementation for a 2 month period.  You basically stop smoking after the first visit!

By combining these laser treatments with a suitable supplementation plan, we get extraordinary results.  I would highly recommend having this type of treatment for any chronic, or pain condition you may be suffering from.

Sweet Poison


By now everyone knows that SUGAR is bad for you.  Well, maybe not everyone!  You see, the majority of the population has been under the spell of the propaganda being spewed forth about how sugar is really not that bad.  “It’s Natural”! “Got a problem with artificial sweeteners?  We use pure natural sugar in our soft drinks!”  Different poisons , same affect – POOR HEALTH!

The charts below illustrate some of the toxic effects of sugar and the artificial sweetener aspartame:

toxic sugar

Effects of the artificial sweetener aspartame

If you read my post on CELLULAR INFLAMMATION you learned that there are three main things that cause it, toxins, bad fats and sugar.  Cellular inflammation (inflammation of the cell’s membrane) basically causes the cell not to function correctly and eventually die.

The inflamed membrane affects the cell’s ability to get rid of waste, absorb nutrients, and it’s receptors become blunted and non-functional, ultimately causing cell death.  Depending on which cells are affected, determines what disease you doctor will diagnose!  (That’s the reason the above charts seem to have unrelated diseases, but they all are affected by cells dying off).

An article written by Brad Chase in today’s explained a good three step process to break a sugar addiction!  First you make sure all your fruits a veggies are ORGANIC.  This produce tastes better, has a higher nutritional content, and contains slower-breaking-down complex carbs.  This is a key factor.


Secondly, if you consume pastries and cookies, you can substitute a whole grain bread and raw honey.  This is not the healthiest option, but it can help break the habit of the simple sugars in baked goods!  Again these are steps taken to break the addiction to sugar.

bread and honey

And thirdly if you are craving crunchy snacks use raw nuts and trail mixes as a substitute for chips, pretzels etc.  Nuts are a great source of nutrients, just make sure they are raw and organic.  If you want to “kick it up a notch”, soak the nuts and them dehydrate them.  This increases their digestibility and actually makes certain nuts taste better!  You can do a search for the simple process of doing this.


Before long, your “taste” for sugar will actually disappear, or be severely curtailed.  When I was a young man (about 100 years ago) I would put multiple (3 to 4) teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, now I drink it black!

You will also see many of your chronic symptoms disappear, and you will not get the annual bout with the flu!

And then you can take it further to other aspects of your environment, and deal with toxins and bad fats!

MicroLight Therapy and Needle-Less Acupuncture!

What is microlight therapy?  Well, it combines the benefits of low frequency microcurrents, with specific colors of therapeutic light!  Microlight provides the fastest known non-drug pain relief!  It also offers superior results for facial and whole body rejuvenation!

acutronThe image above is of a device that provides both Micro current and Color Light Therapy together, in a very well designed, easy to use package – the Acutron Mentor!

The Acutron has presets as well as total control over the variables such as intensity, frequency, and waveform for the microcurrent (both milliamp and microamp).  And also color, brightness, and flash rate for the colors used.  This gives the practitioner complete control over the machine, allowing it to be utilized for a variety of individuals and conditions.


The Energy Light Rejuvenation aspect of the Acutron is another valuable way the device can be utilized.  Applying specific colors and frequencies to acupuncture points of the face results in an uplifted appearance!  This procedure also positively affects the entire body because most meridians have acupuncture points  on the face!

Of course the Acutron can be utilized as a no-needle method of acupuncture for those people that fear needles, as well as for Auricular Therapy  (basically points on the ear that have tremendous affects).

Another application for the Acutron is treating stroke patients.  Watch this amazing video of Dr. Starwynn (the inventor of the Acutron) treating a man who experienced a stroke while in Afghanistan, truly amazing!!!:

Overall the Acutron is a wonderful machine that gives us wonderful results in our practice!  I highly recommend that if you need treatment for pain, want Energy Light Rejuvenation, or have lingering symptoms from a stroke, you seek out a practitioner in your area that uses the Acutron!  There is also a weight loss protocol using the Acutron!
