Cholesterol Is It Real...

CHOLESTEROL is it a cause or an 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 [ 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 ]

BONE and HEEL SPURS

Bone spurs are painful and a nuisance for those who suffer from this condition.  They usually occur in the heels causing restriction of mobility when putting pressure on the heel, but can occur anywhere there is irritation. Causes include: Excess of calcium to magnesium in the diet A lack of vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 in the diet An excess of omega 6 to omega 3 oils in the diet Improper joint alignment of the [ continue reading ]

Infant Formula

When should babies be given cows milk?  Never if it is pasteurized and/or homogenized.  Pasteurized/homogenized milk may be the nearest thing to poison you can give to anyone, but especially to infants.  The nutritional value has been destroyed by pasteurization, the butterfat of cows milk is too difficult to digest and the butterfat globule which humans have no enzyme to digest and no need for is broken down to small particles so it is absorbed right [ continue reading ]

Cold and Flu Preventio...

Now we are in the cold and flu season.  Here are some ways to prevent it: Take adequate amounts of Vitamin D3-5,000-10,000 i.u. per day for those who live in the northern hemisphere during the winter months. The number one vitamin deficiency in America is vitamin D. Do not be duped into taking vitamin D2 that is a chemical and to which you can become toxic very quickly. We make vitamin D3 out of cholesterol [ continue reading ]

Urine Incontinence

Most women who have had babies will experience a drop in their bladder called a cystocele. A cystocele occurs when the wall between a woman’s bladder and her vagina weakens and allows the bladder to droop into the vagina. This condition may cause discomfort and problems with emptying the bladder.  A bladder that has dropped from its normal position may cause two kinds of problems-unwanted urine leakage and incomplete emptying of the bladder.  In some women, [ continue reading ]

HEMORRHOIDS

First of all the cause of the problem:  generally either very hard stools or very loose stools are the most common cause, but many mothers have them following the delivery of their babies.  It seems to be epidemic among truck drivers and those who chronically sit on “hot” seats.  They are actually varicose veins found at the end of the colon in the rectal area and if a person has liver problems or portal hypertension [ continue reading ]
