Stop Taking Vitamins, Until You Read This…

We all have been told that it is very important to supplement our bodies with vitamins that we are lacking in order to maintain optimal health. Well it would be important to be sure to take the right ones!!!

All vitamins are not created equal. There are those that contain binders, fillers and coatings that make them very difficult if not impossible to absorb when they reach the villi within the small intestine. In our office we see many x-rays such as this one that shows a woman which takes 8 tablets each morning and as you can see most of them have not been absorbed and most are in the same shape as they entered her mouth:

The vitamins that are demonstrated in this x-ray are tablets and capsules which as you can see are in the large intestine and beyond the point at which they can be absorbed. This means that they survived the very potent hydrochloric acid that can eat the paint right off of your car and still can be seen on this x-ray as they lie in the colon. Well this is obvious that what this woman is taking is not worth her time because of the lack of absorption they allow.

It has always been my opinion that “all vitamins are created equal” however the difference lies within the ability of the vitamin to be absorbed. After searching for my entire 26 year career in the natural health field, I have found the only supplement that has the delivery process that allows for 95% absorption verses what you see here on this x-ray. All other supplements, as stated in the Physicians Desk Reference, supplements are absorbed at an alarming rate of only 20-25%. When I discovered this form of delivery system for supplements, I instantly saw dramatic results with the patients that I began on this new delivery system. It was at this time I realized that “Not all supplements are created equal” upon discovering this superior delivery system of the Isotonix® dietary supplements. They are not a different type of supplement but a different form for absorption.

Isotonix® dietary supplements are a replica of the body’s own fluids such as tears, intravenous fluids, plasma and breast milk. All fluids in the human body have a certain concentration, which is called the osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure — which is isotonic — allows a consistent maintenance of all body tissues. In order for a substance to be used in the body’s metabolism, it must be changed to the isotonic state.

The efficiency of absorption is also affected by the digestive system. All substances that are acted on in the stomach go through a degradation process (breakdown) before they can be passed through the opening from the stomach to the small intestine to allow absorption. The digestive process can cause substances to lose some nutritive value and this whole process takes time!

The secret of the isotonic process is probably now becoming clear! When an isotonic substance enters the body, it will be absorbed into the bloodstream rapidly. With isotonic fluids, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient. There is nothing artificial about it. An isotonic fluid is nature’s own nutrient delivery system.

Now you are probably asking yourself where can I get some info on this…

Omega 3s and ADHD: What You Need to Know

This article will tie together the connection between low levels of DHA, the active ingrediant in Omega 3, in ADD and ADHD children in comparison to that of normal children not afflicted by this condition. That sounds like a mouthful of letters and may sound confusing however, this article will help make it easy to understand and may be the simple answer we’re looking for. This connection between omega-3 fatty acid deficiency and ADHD has been confirmed by studies…

The little kid who won’t sit still. The middle school student who has a hard time concentrating in class. The teenager who acts out.

While some of these characterizations might seem like mere growing pains, more and more researchers look at these as signs to a much larger – and much more preventable – problem: Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder.

What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common developmental and behavioral disorder characterized by poor concentration, distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness that are inappropriate for the child’s age.

Children and adults with ADHD are easily distracted by sights and sounds in their environment, cannot concentrate for long periods of time, are restless and impulsive, or have a tendency to daydream and be slow to complete tasks.

While ADHD has long been associated with children’s academic progress, the issues are more far-reaching. Researchers at the University of California, Berkley found that girls dealing with ADHD are “at greater risk” of abusing drugs and alcohol and having emotional problems, in addition to academic difficulties.

“The cumulative picture is that girls with ADHD are at risk for a lot of problems,” said psychologist Stephen P. Hinshaw, lead author of the study and chairman of the psychology department at Berkeley.

Children living with the disorder cope with the stigma of being labeled as hyper, lazy, unmotivated and unfocused by adults who don’t understand the problems these children must deal with. Worse yet, many of these children and their parents are told their only solution – their only chance to regain some normalcy – is to take medication on a daily basis.

The Omega 3 Connection
Research continues to suggest that omega 3 fatty acids – those essential building blocks that doctors have been recommending to adults for years – can help curb the onset and development of this disorder in children.

The connection between omega-3 fatty acid deficiency and ADHD has been confirmed by studies in which youngsters with ADHD, when compared with non-ADHD children, had much lower blood levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid necessary for normal function of the eyes and the cerebral cortex (the brain region that handles higher functions such as reasoning and memory).

One such study, conducted at the University of South Australia, called the use of omega 3s more effective than the commonly-prescribed ADHD drug Ritalin.

“Supplementation with [omega-3 fatty acids] resulted in significant improvements … of core ADHD-related behavioural and cognitive difficulties, namely inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, with medium to large effect sizes, and also in ratings of oppositional behaviour,” the report stated. “There is no known evidence that medication provides any benefits beyond four weeks, whereas in the present trial symptoms continued to improve after 15 weeks of supplementation.”

It is estimated that as many as 10% of U.S. children have attention-deficit problems, which includes ADHD and hyperactivity. Despite this, most people get just one-fifth the amount of omega 3s – either from oily fish or other sources – recommended.

So what should parents do? First, pregnant women should make sure they are receiving enough omega 3s to help with the development of their unborn child. Post-pregnancy, parents should make sure their child receives adequate amounts of omega 3s, whether from natural sources (fish, walnuts, etc.) or from supplementation.

Aborted Fetal DNA in Vaccines???

Some people have asked if some vaccines have components derived from human fetuses.

In fact, some vaccines are grown in cell cultures that were originally obtained from two human fetuses. In addition, the rubella virus used to make rubella vaccine was isolated from a third human fetus. Now that this most recent info is out it opens up the argument that has raged for years about the correlation between vaccines and autism.

It has been documented that a sharp incline in autism was observed about the time the pharmaceutical world started introducing aborted fetal DNA in their vaccines.

And as usual…the FDA still denies any connection!

Nitric Oxide And It’s Relationship To Erectile Disfunction…

Does nitric oxide in L-arginine work for Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction?

Read the following information reported by Robert O. Young D. Sc., Ph.D., NMD, who has extensive background in the E.D. field, to find your answer:

  1. Viagra produces Nitric Oxide in the male genitalia and dramatically increases blood flow allowing for erections for a specific amount of time. Bottom-line many erectile dysfunction medications are acidic and therefore come with a long list of negative health effects.
  2. Many published studies have shown that consuming 5,000mg of L-arginine, triggers cell production of Nitric Oxide in all areas of the body including the reproductive system improving circulation to the male or female genitalia.
  3. Producing Nitric Oxide through the use of L-arginine has been found to relax and enlarge blood vessels, which allows for greater blood flow to the extremeties. This is similar to a water hose that is no longer kinked allowing water to flow more freely. It works the same way with the blood being circulated throughout out body. When blood is needed in a special area, it flows more freely, allowing for a better sex life.
  4. Several of my male clients who are using L-arginine for cardiovascular health are also using it for the purpose of sexual health. They have reported no longer needing to use Viagra.
  5. In 1998 three American scientists received the Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering the role of Nitric Oxide and its health benefits for the cardiovascular and reproductive systems.

It should also be mentioned that the blood vessels in the penis are exactly the same as the blood vessels in the heart. If one has some degree of erectile dysfunction then they’ve probably got subclinical coronary artery disease which is a positive indicator that heart trouble is not far off. For men, this is a window that can be used to predict future heart troubles about to happen.

USDA Owns ‘Organic’ Name! Stifles Farmers Markets…

That’s right, the USDA OWNS THE ORGANIC NAME!

This is an article that you must read to understand why the cost of not spraying, dumping, or pouring toxic and expensive chemicals upon our food costs more at the market. When you think about it there is no reason why Organic Foods should cost us more. In this article you will see all the red tape that an Arizona Organic Farmer has to go through just to bring his crop to a local market in order to share what he has to offer those seeking out Organic!

4 Natural Cures For the Dreaded Sunburn…

So, here we are in the middle of “Sun Season” and find ourselves outside looking for that bronze color and all the sudden we realize we have been out in the sun just a bit too long…we all know how valuable vitamin D is the our bones but an excess of sun leads to that dreaded SUNBURN. Now that we have it; what can we do to sooth the painful affects of it?

Below are some of the home remedies by which you can assist in the healing process and can lessen the effects of sunburn.

  • Cool Milk Compresses: – Milk is quite helpful in sunburns. It contains fat and lactic acids which have soothing and comforting qualities to pamper the skin against sunburn. Take a thin translucent soft cotton cloth and soak it in cool milk. Apply the milk on to your skin gently. Do this process for about 20 minutes and then wash with cool water. Repeat the process on a regular basis to reduce the effects of sunburn.
  • Cool, sugarless tea: – The tannin present in tea is the vigorous element, which treats the discomfort of sunburned skin. Make a big pot of tea, and keep it to cool totally; wipe the affected part with the help of cotton cloth or a soft sponge. You can also pour it in a spray bottle and spew it directly on the skin. If your eyes have a burning sensation and they feel to be exhausted then you can place the teabags over your eyes. And don’t throw the used teabags. It has the cooling features that help comfort the sunburned part of our body.
  • Aloe Vera: – The use of Aloe Vera in sunburn treatment is very common. It is also helpful in other skin related problems. Aloe Vera provides soothing feeling and relief from sunburn and helps in healing procedure. Apply Aloe Vera over the skin in order to heal sunburn. Aloe Vera gel is the best healing agent. If you don’t have gel available then you can better look for the cream with aloe vera in it in adequate quantity.
  • Water: – Exposure to sun causes dehydration and thus there is the lack of salt and minerals in our body. As a result our body starts absorbing liquid from blood and tissues. It is known to all of us that a good amount of water consumption can make us healthy and decreases the chances of dehydration.

No doubt, sunburn has become an emerging problem which not only damages the skin but also causes other skin concerns. As we all are familiar with the proverb “Prevention is better than the cure”, so start taking steps towards the prevention of this problem. Use an umbrella and sunglass while you move outside. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight. You can also take the help from a health care provider if you are affected with sunburns.
