Cholesterol: Is It Rea...

CHOLESTEROL a cause or effect and is it really a serious problem??? We talk about good cholesterol and bad cholesterol, but in reality both HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol are very necessary, with HDL being a large molecule that carries cholesterol from the cell to the liver and LDL being a small molecule that carries cholesterol from the liver to the cell. It is only when one has an excess of LDL cholesterol, and excess triglycerides that damage is [ continue reading ]

Natural Blood Thinners

The pharmaceutical blood thinners frequently prescribed and used by the medical profession all have serious side effects and most give the patient little or no control. There are several natural blood thinners that will prevent blood clots and give the patient some control without serious side effects. This does not mean that you may discontinue prescription blood thinners and replace them with these, but it does give young opportunity to take control of your own [ continue reading ]

LEUKOPENIA (LOW WBC)

I often see patients with low WBC (low white blood cell count).  I first try to find the cause and then will usually recommend some lithium orotate to the  patient.  I find outside the U.S. it is a common practice to give lithium to patients with low WBC, and the response is usually remarkable and even miraculous. If one uses lithium carbonate, very close monitoring is required to prevent lithium toxicity, but if the orotate [ continue reading ]

HYPERTENSION—ARTICLE #2

If I had hypertension, what would I do?  I would want to know several things before deciding on a treatment:  how high is it, how inconvenient is it and how many side effects am I experiencing . This would determine how aggressive I would be in the conventional treatment that I would allow to be used on me.   I would use as little medication as possible, would choose the one with the least amount of [ continue reading ]

SLEEP

HOW MUCH SLEEP DO YOU NEED? In order to stay healthy you need to get 6-8 hours of sleep a night.  People, who are healthy, usually get between 6-8 hours of sleep a night.  If you need more than 8 hours of sleep it is usually indicative of some underlying health problem.  The body will try to fight off infections, diseases, etc. in order to try to heal itself.  Sleep is usually indirectly proportional to [ continue reading ]

TYPE II DIABETES #1

Most of the treatment for this disorder by the medical establishment today is focused on helping one live with their condition, but to me that makes little or no sense and is destined to cause end stage problems which only leads to band aid emergency care.  Let’s first look at some of the causes and then in the next article what natural palliative care can be used until the cause is addressed and removed or [ continue reading ]

VARICOSE VEINS

Varicose veins have been referred to as a health problem of barbers and bankers in the past, I suppose  because of the long hours they spend on their feet each day, the lack of exercise to offset the stasis of blood and their lack of dietary discipline after long working hours.  However, I now see more of it in women following nine long months of pregnancy and the increased pressure placed on the venous return [ continue reading ]

HEPATITIS C

Hepatitis C has been a viral infection associated with contaminated needles especially by intravenous drug users in the past.  More and more it is being seen in patients who have received blood transfusions, apparently from contaminated blood rather than unsanitary needles during administration.  At any rate I am seeing more and more innocent victims, who through no fault of their own have contracted hepatitis C.  It usually affects the liver, but can affect every system [ continue reading ]
