ARGENTYN-23, SILVER HYDROSOL

This is the SAFEST antibiotic that I have ever used. “In 4.5 billion years, nothing has ever developed a resistance to silver. It took only a scant 7 decades for pharmaceuticals to fail across the board.”

Pharma’s mantra is to “keep you sick but symptom-free. Just continue taking what they manufacture, regardless of the side effects, and you can maintain your quality of life while your body continues to deteriorate on the inside as a result of the enormous acidic damage pharmaceuticals inflict on the human body.”

Pharma hates silver and any other naturally occurring element because they cannot patent them. Thus, they are always somewhere behind campaigns to regulate such substances out of existence as they are perceived to represent such an enormous threat to Pharma’s survival.

Amalgam and Mercury Dental Filling Toxicity

An often overlooked, but extremely important source of toxic material is the mercury from silver [mercury] amalgam fillings. Some people who are aware of the situation are confused by the mixture of information available. Unfortunately, statements from dental trade organizations and on a few poorly-researched news reports have muddled the situation.

Here are a few facts about mercury amalgam fillings:

1. Causes Damage to Brain in Children
In February, 1998, a group of the world’s top mercury researchers announced that mercury from amalgam fillings can permanently damage the brain, kidneys, and immune system of children.
2. Amalgam Fillings Linked to Neurological Problems, Gastrointestinal Problems
The first large-scale epidemiological study of mercury and adverse reactions was recently completed and showed that of the symptoms looked at, there was a link seen to gastrointestinal problems, sleep disturbances, concentration problems, memory disturbances, lack of initiative, restlessness, bleeding gums and other mouth disorders.
3. Mercury / Alzheimer’s Disease Connection Found
A study related to mercury and Alzheimer’s Disease was recently completed by a team of scientists led by well-respected researcher Dr. Boyd Haley. They exposed rats to levels of mercury vapor diluted to account for size differences between humans and rats. The rats developed tissue damage “indistinguishable” from that of Alzheimer’s Disease. Repeating the experiment showed the same results. Dr. Haley is quoted as saying “I’m getting the rest of my fillings taken out right now, and I’ve asked my wife to have hers replaced too.” Also see: http://www.holistic-dentistry.com/artalzeimer.asp
4. Amalgam Fillings Since 1970s Unstable
The type of mercury fillings that began to be used during the last couple of decades, non-gamma-2 (high copper), releases many times more mercury than the older style of amalgam fillings. Also, please see the article on the instability of dental amalgam fillings by Ulf Bengsston.
5. Amalgam Fillings Release Highly Toxic Elemental Mercury
Mercury is one of the most toxic substances known. The mercury release from fillings is absorbed primarily as highly toxic elemental mercury vapor.
6. Amalgam Fillings Largest Source of Mercury By Far
Based on a number of studies in Sweden, the World Health Organization review of inorganic mercury in 1991 determined that mercury absorption is estimated to be approximately four times higher from amalgam fillings than from fish consumption. Recent studies have confirmed this estimate. The amount absorbed can vary considerably from person to person.
7. Gold Crowns, Gum, Bruxism, Computer Monitors Increase Release of Mercury Significantly
Gum chewing, grinding of teeth/bruxism, computer terminal exposure, presence of gold fillings or gold crowns (even if covering mercury fillings), teeth brushing, braces, and chewing cause the release of significantly increased amounts of mercury from the fillings. Also, please see the following short review related to increases in mercury exposure from dissimilar metals in the mouth, exposure to magnetic fields, chewing, etc.
8. Cumulative Poison and Builds Up in Organs
Mercury released from fillings builds up in the brain, pituitary, adrenals, and other parts of the body.
9. Mercury Amalgam Fillings Effect Porphyrins
Preliminary results from the first detailed biochemical analysis (scroll half-way down) of patients who removed mercury amalgam fillings showed a significant drop in the excretion of porphyrins (important to heme synthesis — heme carries oxygen to red blood cells), as well as a number of other key biochemical changes. Also, see the Video of the preliminary results from the study.
10. Potential Contributory Factor in Other Diseases
Mercury from amalgam fillings has been implicated as a possible contributory factor in some cases of Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, IBS, reproductive disorders, allergies, and a variety of other illnesses.
11. Mercury Build Up in Brain, Organs and Breast Milk of Fetuses of Mothers With Amalgam Fillings
Mercury from fillings in pregnant women has been shown to cause mercury accumulation in brain, kidneys, and liver of human fetuses (all of the areas tested). Studies have shown that mercury can be passed to infants from breast milk.
12. Proper Removal of Fillings Produces Eventual Health Improvement
A recent study published in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine related to the proper removal of mercury amalgam fillings from 118 subjects showed an elimination or reduction or 80% of the classic mercury poisoning symptoms. In many cases, it took 6 to 12 months after mercury amalgam removal for the symptoms to disappear.
|13. World-renowned Experts Agree About Potential Danger
In contrast to statements from dental trade organizations, toxicologists and medical researchers are often quite concerned about the use of mercury. Lars Friberg, the lead toxicologist on the World Health Organization team looking at inorganic mercury and health effects recently stated that he believes that mercury is unsuitable for dental materials because of safety concerns.
14. Canadian Class Action Lawsuit
Canadians are in the process of beginning a major class-action lawsuit based on the fact that the government knew of but did not warn the public about mercury dangers from amalgam fillings. Legal actions related to mercury exposure from mercury amalgam fillings and vaccines are beginning in the United States. For more information and a directory of Mercury-free dentists, please see the TalkInternation.com web site.

Obviously, not everyone experiences acute toxicity effects from the mercury in amalgam fillings. However, virtually everyone does have mercury build up in their bodies from implantation of such fillings. The large increase in mercury exposure from the newer non-gamma-2 mercury fillings means that only time will tell how much damage has been caused by daily exposure to mercury to such fillings.

I do not recommend that people assume automatically that they will be healed by the removal of amalgam fillings. Many people are helped tremendously and some are healed. The 80% figure for people showing improvement within a year likely refers to people who had good reason to suspect that they were being significantly affected by the fillings. The percentage of people in the general population who might experience health improvement within one year after removal is probably much lower than 80%. I recommend going into the mercury amalgam removal procedure knowing that, at the very least, you will have removed yourself from regular exposure to an extremely toxic material such that it will not build up in your organs and possibly cause significant health problems at a later date.

Mercury amalgam fillings should be removed only by dentists with experience using the IOAMT mercury amalgam removal protocol (presented with the permission of the excellent Preventive Dental Association web page). Such dentists are often experienced with proper evaluation and placement of composite fillings, both of which can be crucial for the success of the treatment.

Biocompatability tests are often important in determining which composite materials can be safely used. I believe that composite (plastic) fillings are a better replacement than metal (e.g., gold) fillings even in chemically-sensitive individuals. They are, however, not without safety questions, but are still likely to be much less toxic than mercury amalgam fillings. Proper placement of composites should be left to experienced amalgam removal dentists as the average well-meaning dentist may not be aware of the newer placement techniques.

Natural Treatment Protocol For Fibromyalgia

FIBROMYALGIA SYNDROME

Fibromyalgia, also called fibrositis, is more prevalent in adults, with a higher incidence in women.
Decreased levels of ATP and changes in energy metabolism have also been found in the red blood
cells of fibromyalgia patients, suggesting that fibromyalgia may be a more general and systemic
problem than originally thought, possibly impinging on other organ systems.

Symptoms:
 Ache all over: waxes & wanes, similar to arthritis
 Fatigue: feels like muscles are pulling: pain in ligaments and tendons
 Muscles twitch & burn
 More women affected
 Lack of energy (severity of symptoms fluctuate)
 Resembles post viral state
 Possible relation to CFS
 Sleep disorders (REM level of
3-4 interrupted) creates alpha
EEG anomaly in deep sleep
 Alpha wave intrusion
 IBS
 Chronic headaches
 TMJ dysfunction syndrome
 PMS, chest pain, morning
stiffness, memory impairment,
numbness & tingling sensation,
muscle twitching
 Skin sensitivities, swollen
extremities, dry eyes & mouth,
dizziness, impaired
coordination
 Vision problems
 The chemistry of the brain is imbalanced because the chemistry of the brain is a mess
(chemical pain)
 Liberalism (see bullet point above)

Diagnosis of fibromyalgia:
 Can be very difficult, must rule out other diseases, as it mimics other disease states
 Acupressure points
 Must have pain in all 4 quadrants of the body for a minimum of 3 months
 Muscular-skeletal pain & fatigue
 Up to 18 sites clustered around the neck, shoulders, chest, hip knee & elbow
 Usually bilateral, usually 11 out of 18 sites
 No real definitive laboratory testing except, O2 Utilization & VO2max.
 Not considered an inflammatory disease
 A Cortisol inverted ratio
 LOW SEROTONIN LEVELS
 LOW TESTOSTERONE LEVELS (this modulates pain & endorphin levels)
 Substance P, FM produces 4x’s as much here as in response to normal noxious stimuli
 GH deficiency, due to non-REM sleep
 Due to interruption of slow waves

Aggravating factors:
 Deep level of sleep is interrupted, (stage 4-rem, you get an altered alpha; EEG
 Changes in weather
 Hormonal imbalances & fluctuations
 Stress, depression and over-exertion
 Physical exertion, even mild exertion
 The aerobic capacity decreases as you age

The Inflammatory Cascade Precipitating events that trigger onset:
 Infections, viral or bacterial
 Traumatic accidents
 Most FM patients consume enormous amounts of CARBOHYDRATE-rich foods, which may greatly contribute to their symptoms!
 Heavy metal toxicity
 Rheumatoid arthritis
 Lupus Erythematosis
 If resting oxygen is low, the thyroid is problematic
 Hypothyroidism:
 Poor Dietary habits esp., HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, as this is toxic to the body’s
metabolic process and affects fibromyalgic’s to a greater degree!

All the above events may awaken underlying physiological abnormalities
that are already present.

TESTING and LABORATORY SCREENING for Chronic Myofascial Syndrome
(Hematological Profile, Blood Chemistry & Vitamin testing)
~ Janet G Travell, MD; The Trigger Point Manual, 1983, p 155.

HEMATOLOGICAL PROFILE

1. ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate). If normal, no chronic bacterial infection.
If elevated, it is non-specific and may indicate other conditions such as, RA or cancer.
2. ESR, if decreased, or low hemoglobin, indicates anemia which tends to make muscles
hypoxic and increases TP (trigger point) irritability. Anemia can be caused by a folate or
cobalamin deficiency.
3. MCV, if increased above 92 (95-100), a folate or cobalamin deficiency is likely increased.
4. Eosinophilia, if elevated, may be due in part to an active allergy or an intestinal parasite like
E.histolytica or tapeworm.
5. Monocytes, may be due to low thyroid function or an acute viral infection
(if elevated, more than 50%)

BLOOD CHEMISTRY PROFILE

1. URIC ACID LEVEL: if increased:
indicates gout (hyperuricemia)
2. POTASSIUM: if low can cause
muscle cramps and increase
myofascial TP’s
3. FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE:
4. NERVE CONDUCTION
VELOCITIES:
5. SERUM IONIZED CALCIUM: if low
could mean calcium deficiency.
6. SERUM CHOLESTEROL: if
increased could indicate low
thyroid function: if low could
mean low folate

VITAMIN DETERMINATION

1. B1, B6, B12, FOLIC ACID & VITAMIN C: abnormally low levels of any of these
vitamins perpetuate TP’s
2. esp., if in of lower quartile of normal
THYROID TESTS
T4- T3 And Basal Body Temperature
~Janet G Travelle, MD; The Trigger Point Manual, 1983, p. 156

ETIOLOGY

Theories explaining fibromyalgia:
 Hormonal system imbalances (PMS, ERT, HRT, etc.)
 Viral symptom imbalance
 Alterations in sleep physiology
 Low levels of IGF-1 are present in most FM patients
 Sleep apnea
 Mitochondrial derangement in small muscle fibers
 Sleep deprivation
 Alterations in immune system function
 Alterations in brain chemistry & function, esp., neurotransmitters (esp., serotonin)
 Toxin exposure can result in prolonged firing of the body’s pain receptors, increasing
sensitization and exaggerating the central nervous system response. Exposure to
heavy metal mercury may contribute to altered inflammatory and immune responses
and have neurotoxic effects.

Muscle hypoxia and prolonged energy deficiency, may be causes of fibromyalgic pain.

Biochemical studies have confirmed that energy metabolism is abnormal in fibromyalgia, thus
requiring appropriate metabolic therapy. ~Olson NJ, JH Park 2

Most current theory is that oxygen deprivation may be the culprit!

Blood flow to the tissue in fibromyalgia patients is lower than normal thus leading to:

“LOW TISSUE OXYGENATION LEVELS”

Reduced blood flow, changes in capillary wall thickness and structural changes to the
mitochondria contribute to hypoxia, decreased oxidative phosphorylation, lower ATP
synthesis and reduced levels of Adenine Nucleotides in fibromyalgic muscle.

Recent research has shown that those with fibromyalgia have capillary walls (capillaries are the
smallest of blood vessels that bring blood and oxygen to affected muscles) that become thickened
and are unable to deliver enough oxygen to fully meet the need in the tissue. This lack of oxygen
creates localized ischemia, draining energy from muscles.

Energy depletion then unleashes a cascade of physiological events that cause mild to severe pain;
muscle stiffness and soreness; and overwhelming fatigue. One of the major impacts of the cellular
energy deprivation associated with fibromyalgia is the muscles’ inability to manage their own
calcium load.

The subsequent lack of cellular energy inhibits the activity of the cellular calcium pump, so that
calcium cannot be adequately discharged from the cell following a muscle contraction. YOU MUST
HAVE AN ADEQUATE MAGNESIUM LEVEL.

This buildup of calcium in the cell sustains the muscle’s contraction, keeping it tense. The increase
in intracellular calcium also causes potassium ions to rush out of the cell, activating pain receptors
on the cell membrane called nociceptors. Most of us experiencing muscle pain do the same thing:
tense and tighten that painful area even more.

All this contraction contributes to more muscle stiffness and exacerbates the drain on energy
reserves. We all know how exhausting pain is, both physically and emotionally. And so, the
downward spiral continues.

Some patients, having been in an automobile accident, for example, go on to develop symptoms.
Others, exposed to environmental toxins like heavy metals, insecticides, and pesticides, become so
poisoned that they develop these symptoms. These factors, and others, are causing the incidence of
FM and CFS to increase.

Additionally, the poor bioenergetic status of muscles in the fibromyalgia syndrome may be due to
reduced blood flow in the affected tissue, which in turn would limit production of ATP. Just as a
heart in failure is energy-starved, so is a fibromyalgic muscle. Since decreased levels of ATP and
changes in energy metabolism have been found in red blood cells of fibromyalgic patients, and that
blood is circulated throughout the body, some researchers now believe that fibromyalgia may be
more of a systemic problem than a localized one.

Current treatment regimens forfibromyalgia:
 Physical therapy & aerobic therapies
 Acupuncture & acupressure
 Stress & relaxation therapies
 VIBRATIONAL POWER PLATE
or DKN Vibration Plate technology (3x’s QW.)
 OXYGEN UTILIZATION: a 45-minute test utilizing a
pulmonary gas analyzer & an exercise ergometer
 Mitochondrial energy optimizer by Life Extension,
(for energy & fatigue)
 Body-Bio the P-K Protocol for membrane
detoxification,(888-320-8338)
 IAG & Amino Sport : Biotics research Inc.(arabinogalactins & amino acid formula for muscle strength)
 Cognitive Reframing
 Txt in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber
 SAM-e, a methylator
 Ambien gives steady sleep pattern BUT is addictive
 Tramadol (Ultram) decreases the use of opioids to decrease tolerance and addiction
 NEO-40, increases NO Levels
 PQQ, boosts mitochondrial biogenesis
 PEMF bio-magnetic mats, BEMER or INRF brands
 NAD+, from Life Extension
 Magnesium Orotate, 600 mg qd. to bowel tolerance

 D-RIBOSE, D-RIBOSE, D-RIBOSE, (15 mg per day, dispense TID.) D-Ribose supplementation accelerates the metabolic pathways responsible for making the ATP molecule itself, rebuilding energy pools and promoting normal heart and skeletal function.
 Balance all HORMONES, esp. thyroid & testosterone
 Balance all NEUROTRANSMITTERS, esp. Serotonin and Dopamine
 Control insomnia, OSA, esp., stage 4 REM-sleep
 Trigger point injections
 Address ADRENALS
 NSAIDS

 Humira, a TNF-alpha blocker (for severe arthritis) (polyarticular arthritis and CROHN’s), suppresses the immune system and can cause SERIOUS SFX.
 Testing for V-max and O2 utilization potential
 Move around and move often, aerobic exercise is hugely important
 CFS & FM: have a higher Inflammatory Cytokine Index and this inhibits IGF-1
 Remove all heavy metal toxins, see next step:
 The key botanicals in Ultra Clear Renew may modify upstream signaling pathways. Such as:
 Phase II enymes in the liver (GST,NQO-1,and activators such as:
 Nrf-2, HO-1, associated with the antioxidant response element (ARE) and metal response element (MRE)- Transcriptional elements that induce toxic element metabolism and liver detoxification
 VERY LOW- CARBOHYDRATE DIET esp., no HFCS
 Proper exercise techniques
 ULTRA CLEAR RENEW (Metagenics) helps patients manage pain and stiffness as well as
helping with urinary output of heavy metals.

Txt with: Ultra Renew & Ultra Clear Renew for 4 weeks caused a reduction in:
1. FIQ total score, (fibromyalgia impact quotient or Questionnaire)
2. Decrease in fibro-quest score
3. An increased mRNA expression of METALLOTHIONEIN, a cellular protein that plays
a role in the metabolism of heavy metal elimination.
4. An increase in Creatinine-adjusted excretion of Hg++

ENERGY STATUS OF FIBROMYALGIC MUSCLE

Biopsy studies investigating the metabolism of ATP, creatine phosphate (PCr), ADP, AMP,
pyruvate and glycogen have shown that levels of PCr and ATP are significantly lower (21% and
17%, respectively) in fibromyalgic muscle and the synthesis of PCr, the most important store of
high energy phosphate in the cell, is defective.

P-31 MRS looks directly into the muscle to determine the absolute values of energy compounds,
muscle pH and changes in metabolism as they occur at rest and during exercise. In addition, during
exercise there is an increase in metabolic breakdown products of ATP energy metabolism and
disruption of cell membranes, both associated with muscle disease.

The energy reserve, or phosphorylation potential (PP), and the ability to utilize oxygen (total
oxidative capacity or Vmax) have been determined using P-31 MRS. The mean PP is significantly
lowered in FM patients and V-max is also significantly reduced. These findings are consistent with
reduced oxidative phosphorylation and ATP synthesis in the muscles of fibromyalgia patients and
may translate into the clinical symptom of fatigue.

Poor bio-energetic status of muscles in fibromyalgia may be due to reduced blood flow to affected
tissue and thickening of capillary walls, leading directly to reduced levels of ATP, lower energy
reserves and oxidative capacity (V-max) and abnormal levels of phosphor-diesters in the muscle.

The additional complication of impaired oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria and
diminished glucose metabolism, both lowering ATP turnover, suggests that fibromyalgic muscle is
energy starved. Decreased numbers of capillaries that reduce oxidative capacity may increase pain,
while thickened capillary walls lowering oxygen delivery and abnormal mitochondria lead to
fatigue and weakness. All are associated with reduced levels of ATP and energy metabolism that, in
turn, leads to disruptions in calcium stasis, muscle soreness and stiffness.

Ribose in Maintaining Tissue Energy Stasis

Tissue hypoxia leads to a progressive depression of the cellular purine nucleotide pool creating an
energy deficit. The adenine nucleotide ATP is the primary energy source of all living cells.
Exogenous ribose administration provides the metabolic support required to bypass the rate
limiting enzymes of the PPP, form PRPP and restore energy stasis in metabolically stressed muscle.
The effect of ribose treatment in myoadenylate deaminase deficiency (AMP deaminase deficiency)
and adenylosuccinase deficiency has been well documented. Like fibromyalgia, these conditions
lead to progressive depletion of cellular energy pools, leading to muscle pain, soreness and
stiffness. The beneficial role in energy recovery in these disease conditions with ribose treatment is
suggestive of its potential role in energy recovery in fibromyalgia.

DIY Natural Toothpaste

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR TEETH, NATURALLY?

As a Naturopathic and Holistic Dentistry clinic, you can imagine we get asked this question a lot. So, we’ve decided to summarize the answer for you and your family. The idea here is to:

  • keep your mouth slightly alkaline, a pH above 6.7 is the best
  • keep your macro and micro-mineral content high,
  • use essential oils in your daily regimen, especially clove, and thieves
  • use ozonated oil and ozonated water! This is a big deal!!!
  • consume a healthy diet. Stay away from ALL REFINED SUGARS!
  • control your oral probiotic content, use streptococcus salivarius k-12
  • and stay away from commercial toothpaste and cleaners that are loaded with crap!

How, you ask, do I accomplish this?

  1. Oil Pulling: See my article on Oil Pulling, it’s very beneficial.
  2. You cannot always brush after you eat but you certainly can rinse your mouth with water and I highly recommend that you do this
  3.  Drink water with fresh squeezed lemon juice. See* below
  4.  Use a SONICARE toothbrush with baking soda and coconut oil.
  5. If you chew gum or must eat sugar, then use XYLITOL products but use them sparingly! NEVER, EVER DRINK SODA POP, IT’S POISON, plain and simple!
  6. Follow my: 80% ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS LIST.
  7. Use Concentrace Liquimins on a daily basis. I use 21 drops per day
    You need to adjust this to bowel tolerance. Especially for your kid’s.
    *Remember also, to breathe deeply through your nose while keeping your mouth closed as this limits the drying effect of the air

*Remember also, to keep hydrated, by drinking ½ your body weight in ounces. Just remember to add your trace minerals as well as your macro-minerals
Keep in mind, that what is happening in your teeth is also happening in your bone and skeletal matrix. This is because your blood maintains the homeostatic pH balance by drawing on the minerals in your teeth and bone.

The Alkaline Diet

There are many different diet trends making headlines today, all of which have their own individual benefits and drawbacks. The alkaline diet has been made popular as of late due to its promotion by big celebrity names, such as Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Victoria Beckham. The idea behind the Alkaline diet (or acid-alkaline diet) is that through diet, you can change the pH levels in your body. When you consume food, it does more than satisfy hunger or cravings for a particular taste.

Did you know that a few things happen within the body that has a direct impact on how your body functions? First, when you eat, your body creates energy through a process called metabolism. Metabolism is a chemical reaction during which the body combines the calories in the food or beverage you have consumed with the help of oxygen, which is already in the body to create energy. This process is extremely important as it is required to maintain life! However, as with many chemical processes, this happens in a slow and controlled way.

Did you know that metabolism acts as the fire in your fireplace? Once all the logs have completed burning, then what is left behind is ash, which is largely unusable. After the process of food breakdown has been completed, then there are the leftover components, commonly referred to as metabolic waste or ash.

These waste products cannot be used by the body as they are either surplus (the body already has enough) or are toxic, and they must be excreted from the body. This waste is either alkaline, neutral, or acidic in nature. This is where the alkaline diet comes into play. As noted above, the idea behind the alkaline diet is that the foods you eat will control the alkalinity or your body’s acidity, more specifically the ash. If the ash is too acidic due to the foods that are consumed, it is thought that the body becomes more vulnerable to disease or illness as alkaline ash is thought to be protective in nature. So, by consuming more alkaline foods, you are protecting your body with your healthy dietary choices.

How do you classify a healthy pH level?

The alkaline diet is said to impact your overall health by impacting the pH levels of the body; so, what is a healthy pH level? Simply stated, pH is the measurement of the acidity or level of alkaline. Standard pH values range from 0 being the most acidic to 14, which is the most alkaline. Further broken down, a substance is considered acidic if the pH value falls between 0.0 and 6.9.

A neutral pH will have a value of 7.0. Finally, a substance is considered alkaline if the pH value falls between 7.1 and 14. Having said that, it is important to understand what is considered a normal pH in the body. Unfortunately, this is not a simple question with a simple answer. The pH varies widely throughout the body, so what is normal for one part of the body may be too acidic or too alkaline for another. For example, the stomach is generally highly acidic (with a pH of 2-3.5), whereas the pH of the body’s blood is always more alkaline and characterized with a pH level of around 7.4.

Can food change the pH level of the body’s blood?

Unfortunately, many who choose to follow an alkaline diet do so under the false premise that it is possible to change the pH level of the body’s blood. It is argued that cancer cells grow more readily in acidic conditions, so, if the pH level of the body’s blood could be impacted, then a person would be less likely to develop cancer. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the pH level of the body’s blood through diet, and significant alterations to the overall alkaline nature of the blood could be life-threatening.

The pH levels of saliva and urine can and do change based on diet, metabolism, and a variety of other factors. Those who follow the alkaline diet are encouraged to monitor the pH level of their urine to ensure it remains alkaline. One of the ways the body maintains and regulates its pH is to use the process of urination to excrete acids from the body. Unfortunately, the timeframe required for the body to complete its metabolic processes and for the body to excrete the excess waste is large, and therefore urine is not the best indicator for the body’s overall pH level.

Do acidic foods contribute to Osteoporosis?

Many proponents of the alkaline diet believe that consumption of too many acid-forming foods can contribute to OsteoporosisOsteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that signifies a reduction in the mineral content within the bones, specifically calcium. Although Osteoporosis can impact anyone, at virtually any age, it is most common among post-menopausal women.

An individual with Osteoporosis is much more likely to suffer from bone fractures than someone who has healthy bones. Followers of the alkaline diet believe that in order to maintain a constant pH, your body needs the important alkaline minerals, of which calcium is one, so that your body may buffer the acids in the consumed acid-forming foods. This theory also follows that a western diet, which is considered highly acid-forming, will cause a loss in bone mineral density.

Unfortunately, this theory negates the job of the kidneys in the regulation and removal of acids from the body. The kidneys play a very important role in regulating pH because they produce bicarbonate ions that neutralize blood acids. As a result, the body is able to manage the pH in the blood.

Additionally, your respiratory system plays a role in pH regulation in the blood. When the bicarbonate ions bind to the acids in the blood, they form a combination of carbon dioxide and water, which are excreted from the body by exhaling and urinating, respectively.

Finally, the acid-ash hypothesis, or the idea that acid-producing foods lead to Osteoporosis, does not address one of the main driving forces behind the development of Osteoporosis, a loss in collagen from the bones. Interestingly enough, this loss of collagen is linked to low acid levels in the body, specifically, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and orthosilicic acids.

Several clinical trials have shown no impact on calcium levels in the body from the consumption of acid-forming foods.

Do alkaline foods help to prevent cancer?

One of the biggest draws or selling points of the alkaline diet is its potential to prevent or cure cancer and help achieve a positive outcome of chemotherapy. As mentioned above, there is an argument that cancer cells only grow in acidic conditions, and thus, cancer can feasibly be treated (or potentially cured) through an alkaline diet. There are a few reasons why this thought process may be inaccurate. While the alkaline diet has been widely studied, none of those studies have produced scientific evidence to support this claim, and no studies have directly tested this acclaimed hypothesis.  

First, diet does not significantly increase or lower the pH level of the body’s blood. As previously mentioned, drastic alterations in the pH level of the body’s blood could be fatal and are not easily accomplished by altering our food intake. But, for a moment, let us consider the thought that food choice could indeed modify the pH level of the body’s blood or other body tissues. This would also have a minimal impact on the growth of cancer cells as they are not limited solely to acidic conditions. Cancer does not grow just in the blood. Cancer tends to grow in the normal blood tissues, which have a slightly alkaline pH level, and therefore cancer does not need an acidic condition to develop, grow, and thrive. Yes, cancerous tumors do accelerate their growth rate in acidic conditions, but they create the acidic conditions themselves, not the other way around.

It is important to note that the American Institute for Cancer Research does not support claims around cancer and the alkaline diet. They have stated that the acidic or alkaline nature of the food one consumes is not important when it comes to the human body’s chemistry and lowering our risk for cancer and other chronic conditions. Instead, a largely plant-based diet with a focus on consuming lots of fruits, vegetables, and grains is more important.

Which foods are recommended on the alkaline diet?

The alkaline diet is designed around the pH levels of specific foods. Like many other diets, there are slightly differing versions of the diet, and each version may allow for slightly different foods. If you are following an alkaline diet, you will want to consume primary alkaline foods, a limited number of neutral foods, and try to avoid acid foods altogether. So, what foods fall into each food group? Below is a brief list of some foods and their categories.

Acid foods: Meat, poultry, fish, shellfish, dairy, eggs, grains, alcohol, peanuts, walnuts, processed foods, soda, and coffee.

Neutral foods: starches, sugars, and natural fats

Alkaline foods: Fruits, legumes, vegetables, seeds, tofu.

In conclusion, the alkaline diet is quite healthy, but depending on your current health condition(s) may not be recommended. The alkaline diet is not for everyone. Most importantly, if you are considering making a significant change to your diet, you should discuss it with your doctor. Removing or adding specific food groups can be dangerous for some individuals. There are indeed people who should avoid this diet, as is the case with many different diets such as keto, paleo, Atkins, etc. The alkaline diet promotes the intake of healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables, while encouraging a restriction on processed foods, alcohol, sugar, carbohydrates, and soda.

The alkaline diet may be beneficial for individuals with kidney disease as it is low in protein and could raise the pH of the urine. These two elements combined may slow the course of the kidney disease,

Also, individuals with heart disease could benefit from following the alkaline diet because the alkaline diet is naturally low fat and the calories could help to promote a healthy body weight and lower other heart disease-related risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Reduction in body weight, a natural side effect of reducing one’s intake of carbohydrates, sugars, and processed foods, is also important for treating diabetes and osteoarthritis.

Following an alkaline diet may be challenging for many. While a lot of other diet plans allow for favorite foods to be consumed in moderation, these favorite foods are an absolute no-no for those who follow the alkaline diet. These prohibited favorite foods may include meat, bread, sweets, and dairy products like ice cream and cheese. Protein intake is also very limited. Where some other diets allow for consumption of meat and nut products, the alkaline diet requires one’s protein intake to come from plant-based sources, such as beans and tofu-which is not always a fan favorite. Eating out or eating while traveling is also monumental challenges.

Finally, the alkaline diet does not require or promote a regular exercise routine, which, depending on your medical conditions may not be beneficial. As with any diet change, it is suggested you contact your doctor to discuss your plans and determine if the change is a healthy choice that would be right for you.

PROTOCOL for INFLAMMATORY CONTROL of NF-kappa Beta*

This is the genetic switch that turns on ALL inflammatory pathways. It’s like the circuit-breaker in your house. If you want to shut off all the lights in your home, you have two choices.
1. Go around and turn off each light switch in each room, or…
2. Hit the main circuit-breaker in your home.

This is an example of NF-kB*. It is the genetic circuit-breaker that up-regulates all inflammatory pathways. How? By turning on the genetic machinery (mRNA) that codes for and makes the inflammatory proteins called cytokines.

HERE IS HOW YOU DO IT:
In addition to following all of the Dietary guidelines in the Modules that I have laid out for you, AND, the Weston A. Price Foundation Dietary Guidelines (www.WestonAPrice.org), you may add the
heavy-hitters below:

TAKE:

  • VITAMIN D3, get your levels to 80-100ng/dl (1-alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, the active D3 metabolite inhibits NF-kB activity
  • TESTOSTERONE, decreases the pain level
  • TUMERIC-CURCUMIN, decreases NF-kB activity
  • R-LIPOIC ACID, reduces the TNF-alpha-stimulated ICAM-1 expressio
  •  GREEN TEA EXTRACT , EGCG, inhibits IKK activity
  • ROSEMARY, carnosol suppresses the NO production
    and iNOS gene expression by inhibiting NF-kB activation
  • GRAPE SEED EXTRACT, this can kill off H. pylori in your gut, also!
  • PYCNOGENOL, pine bark extract, this nutrient is also great for your heart and blood flow
  • PROPOLIS, this is honey bee resin and it contains: Caffeic Acid Phenyl Ethyl Ester, or CAPE
  • trans-RESVERATROL, modifies the sirtuin genes which control aging.
  • PHYTOLENS R, ____polyphenolic extract from lentils
  • ASTAXANTHIN, an extremely powerful carotenoid -lipophilic antioxidant
  • BELL PEPPERS, these contain over 30 carotenoid
  •  KAPPARREST, a Biotics Research product that can quell NFkB.
  • KRILL OIL, inhibits NF-kB
  • ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS
  • R-ALA: decreases CRP and IL-6 levels, significantly in 3 month
  • EPA: reduces pro-inflammatory eicosanoids: LT-B4, PAF’S, and cytokines, TNF-alpha, and IL-6 as well as a reduction in PG-E2 and TX-B2 14 Biotics
  • DHA: bio-active metabolites are resolvins. A component of cellular membranes
  • GLA: a healthy omega-6 fatty acid, for inflammation and skin integrity. Elongates to the DGLA form, which then forms the cardio-protective eicosanoids.
  • BORAGE OIL
  • OMEGA-3’S: Increase by using Chia seeds and Calamarine oil.
  • OMEGA 7’s (see my article on Omega-7)
  • SEANOL-P (Ecklonia cava) a powerful bioflavanoid antioxidant, a phlorotannin complex that is a long-lasting powerful anti-inflammatory. Great for arthritis pain.

ALSO USE:

 Use Coconut Oil, contains Monolaurin. Take 2 teaspoons per day
 Use Caloric Restriction, increases new Mitochondrial growth
 Humic-Monolaurin Complex, from ARG.
 Chia Seeds, a fantastic source of Omega-3 fatty acids
 Omega-7 fatty acid, new to the market

All of these supplements work by down-regulating the SUPER EICOSANOID HORMONES
that down-regulate the NF-kappa Beta Inflammation breaker switch.

You may order any of these from, the Doctors Supplement Store, (information is in this module).

If you have your own source, that’s fine, just make sure they are physician grade! This is critical for proper absorption!

The Benefits of Oil Pulling

THE BENEFITS of OIL PULLING

Oil pulling has its roots in Ayurvedic Medicine. It is an ancient Indian technique that draws out toxins from the inflamed oral gingival tissues and exhibits anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal benefits. This procedure is useful for many oral health conditions.

See the benefit’s list below.

HOW DOES OIL PULLING WORK? Everything in your body is connected! The Good Lord designed it that way. When you have inflammation or an infection in your mouth, cell-signaling compounds are produced by your liver called, cytokines. These inflammatory cytokines tell your inflammatory system that your body is on fire and turns on a transcription switch called NF-Kb or Nuclear Factor-kappa Beta. This starts the process of continued elevated chronic inflammation and the beginnings of Chronic Degenerative Disease (CDD).

Your mouth is home to many billions of bacteria, yeast, and viruses, some good, some not-so-good. These bugs can travel around systemically and override the cellular barriers designed to protect you. The 1st signs of trouble are red, inflamed and bleeding gums. Next is periodontal disease and this can affect your heart, lungs, pregnancies, and all of your major organ systems.

At this point, the bugs can enter your bloodstream through the GINGIVAL SULCUS BARRIER and wreak havoc, by causing inflammation in the arterial endothelial layer of your blood vessels. This whole process sends the immune system into over-drive! But you can begin to reverse the process by oil-pulling!

This ancient detoxification protocol pulls the toxins out of your gum tissues and teeth, including failed root canal infections, etc. It also protects tissues due to the oil’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and viricidal nature. It can also interfere with plaque biofilms by making them less sticky!

THE BENEFITS OF OIL PULLING INCLUDE:
1. Fresher, better breath and less decay, especially in your children!
2. Decreasing oral, gingival, and periodontal infections
3. Decreasing non- beneficial oral bacteria, along with decreasing systemic infections and disease.
4. Decreased Oral inflammation, AKA- gingivitis and bleeding gums
5. Decreased Cardio-Vascular Disease. (CVD)
6. A healthier, less active immune system, with fewer colds
7. A healthier, better functioning probiotic bacterial ratio by increasing the beneficial bacteria.

COCONUT OIL IS AN MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) and it KILLS CANDIDA and is a very healthy fat, that is also very good for your gut!

HOW AND WHEN DO I OIL PULL?

 Oil pull for 10-20 minutes in the am, then spit out in the trash! Do not swallow the oil.
 Brush with baking soda, then,
 Add 21 drops of Concentrace (Liquimins) into a glass of H2O:
 Consume it, then:
 Rinse with food-grade hydrogen peroxide, we suggest BR from Essential Oxygen.
 You can also rinse with baking soda, as this increases the alkalinity in your mouth;
 Thereby decreasing plaque, dental biofilm, and decay!

You can use 1 tablespoon of either sesame or coconut oil or a mixture of both. Swish vigorously forcing the mixture through your teeth for 10-20 minutes, then spit in the garbage, not in your sink! It will harden and block your plumbing lines if you spit in the sink or toilet.
