Water!

Water is probably the most important thing that we consume, but it has to be GOOD WATER!

If we drink toxic water (fluoride, drugs, etc.) then we are probably doing more harm than good.  When I was a kid, we didn’t even think about water, when we were thirsty we drank tap water (bottled water was not invented yet).

The problem is that many of the municipal water supplies in the US are toxic, however, the “safe” standards are met, so nothing is done about it.

The problem is that modern science has proven that these levels pose countless health risks.

There are 160 contaminants that are unregulated, and therefore have  NO LEGAL LIMITS! Frighteningly the EPA  has refused to add any new contaminants to their listing of regulated tap water pollutants in over two decades!  Not doing their job!

My home uses a well with a whole house filtration system, and we drink distilled.  Distilled is great because it helps better flushing toxins out of the body, and it makes my coffee taste better! 🙂  This seems to be good, so we’ll keep it up.  I would recommend using some type of quality filter for your home as well.  We use an Aquasana whole house filter.

If you are interested in checking the quality of your municipal water, go to Environment Working Group https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/.  They have a fairly good list of areas with the found contaminants and filter suggestions.

Kuerig – Great way of making coffee?

Keurig is very convenient, but is it a healthy way of making your coffee?  Not so much!

From www.Greenmedinfo.com:

  • How fresh is the coffee in a K Cup?
  • What toxins am I exposing myself to as the hot water forces the coffee through the little holes poked in the plastic cup?
  • What is that lid made of that is poked at the top to allow the water to enter the cup?
  • What chemicals are used in the flavored coffee selections?
  • Is there a filter inside the plastic cup? What is it made of and how is it secured inside the plastic cup?

Mold and mildew is a big problem!  Some people have this issue and are affected by it, some not so much.  The problem is that the internal tank and tubes never get drained out and dried!  Dark, warm. moist, the perfect breeding ground for mold!

Then there is the problem of the quality of the coffee.  Is it fresh?  What toxins am I exposed to from the machine itself?  What are the coffees flavored with?

If you consider all the toxin exposure, and the freshness of the coffee, doing “your own” makes a lot of sense!

Personally I just use organic green coffee beans, roast and grind myself, and use an Aeropress coffee brewer to make it.  Best coffee ever!

Hearing loss is caused by various things…However, nutrition helps!

Hearing loss is usually associated with seniors, but it can be an issue at any age!

Our ears are like any other organ in the body, they need good nutrition to function at their best. If good nutrition is lacking hearing will be affected just as much as any other organ functions!

Inflammation and free radicals (caused by various factors) are the main culprits in most chronic diseases, and the best way to mitigate them is through proper nutrition via good food and supplements.  The B vitamins (particularly folate, B9 and B12)  play a large part in mitigating hearing issues.

Whether you, or a loved one, is suffering from hearing loss, please heed this advice and put more of a priority on nutrition as something that helps in ALL diseases, and without the “side effects” of pharmaceutical drugs!

Third Hand Smoke!

Third Hand Smoke is very stealthy (except for the stink), and it can affect your brain and liver function over time! One  month!

If exposure persists for longer, it will exacerbate the issue, causing cellular damage and a host of diseases.  Mainly due to the liver being our body’s filter!

THS has also been shown to be highly resilient, remaining on surfaces for years. They are even resistant to the strongest cleansing agents. Over time, they can react to ambient air and turn into carcinogenic chemicals. Children are even more vulnerable than adults to THS.

The negative effects of smoking are well known, but this new information takes the risk to a new level. Share this information with smokers and non-smokers alike.

In our center we use a special Induction Laser combined with various homeopathics in a VERY successful stop smoking protocol! (doesn’t help with third hand smoke!)

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 http://www.growyouthful.com, 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!

Smoking

 

 

smoking-pigeonAll of us know by now, or at least I hope so, that the smoking habit is a real killer!

I remember as  kid my parents telling me never to start smoking!  But my father did (and he eventually passed from emphysema).

But it’s hard for someone to actually believe that smoking is bad, when you feel fine, and others smokers that you know also feel fine!

This dichotomy between one’s own experiences and what one is being told, makes it a tough sell!

smokingHowever nowadays the detailed information available to us makes it even harder!  The evidence is overwhelming!  Below I offer a summary of what is now known.  If  a smoker is aware of these FACTS and doesn’t immediately seek help to quit, they are probably deserving of the inevitable consequences!

  • Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals!  At least 50 of these are KNOWN CARCINOGENS (cause cancer in humans) and many are just classified as poisonous!
  • Tobacco kills up to HALF of its regular users!
  • Tobacco caused 100 MILLION deaths in the 20th century!
  • Cigarettes are on of the few products, which can be sold legally, which can harm or kill you over time, if used as intended!
  • Scientists claim that the average smoker will lose 14 YEARS of their life due to smoking!
  • Nicotine reaches the brain within 10 seconds after smoke is inhaled, and has been found in every part of the body  as well as breast milk!
  • Sugar approximates to roughly 20% of a cigarette, and many diabetics are unaware of this secret sugar intake.  Also the effects on the body of inhaling burning sugar is unknown!
  • “Lite” cigarettes are produced by infusing tobacco with CO2 and superheating it until the tobacco “puffs up” like expanding foam.  the expanded tobacco then fills the same paper tube as a “regular” tobacco!  
  • On average, smokers draw on “lite” and menthol cigarettes harder than regular ones, causing the same levels of tar and nicotine to be consumed!
  • The manufacturer uses several active ingredients, and special methods of production to ensure that the nicotine levels in a cigarette is many time more potent than that of a tobacco plant!
  • Cigarettes cost a lot of money, $5 to $14 (in New York)!  That’s a lot of cash (more than $5000 for NY) over a year, even if you only smoke one pack per day!

We have many methods available today, to help a person quit, such as:

  • Gradual reduction
  • Nicotine replacement therapy
  • Patches
  • Gum
  • Nasal sprays
  • Inhalers
  • Hypnosis
  • Acupuncture
  • PEMF therapy
  • Low level laser therapy

These methods have varying degrees of cost, time, and success!  And, most important of all, the person MUST want to quit! If someone really enjoys smoking, and they don’t have any medical symptoms (yet), they will not stop, no matter what method they use!

Tobacco is a nasty addiction that ONLY affects your health and life in a negative way.  Think of what you could do with all that extra cash you will have on hand after you stop!

With the huge downsides of the smoking habit, which include poor health, complaints from friends and spouse, dealing with the many “Non Smoking” areas being enforced now, and the cost, it would behoove any current smoker to find a quitting option that will work for them!
