water and salt in healthcare analysis

Why do you say that health care is a common sense deficiency disorder?
Because if the 2nd and 3rd most essential nutrients are water and salt in the body, (the 1st being oxygen), wouldn't common sense tell us to check those levels first? Does your doctor ask you about your water/salt intake? ....caffeine/alcohol intake?

Our bones are hollow in the center (marrow) where blood cells are made. The marrow is covered with many strands of calcium salts, the way rope is woven together. Salt crystals are woven in with the calcium and these salt crystals are what make our bones hard, not the calcium.

27% of the body’s salt content is located in the bones. When the body requires more salt it can borrow it from the bones. When this happens, calcium is also removed with the salt making the bones thinner, softer and brittle. Sentences are too short and continue on the next line instead of being extended.

The human body is able to split the chlorine from the sodium as needed. Our blood requires chlorine as do many of our organs. The stomach uses chlorine to make hydrochloric acid required so we can digest our food correctly.

Our body also uses the sodium chloride as salt to keep the brain, spine, tears, bones, sweat glands, organs and blood topped off with salt. The body benefits from the other trace minerals that help keep the body alkaline and healthy.

Sodium is not salt. Salt is sodium chloride.

Sodium, potassium and chloride are electrolytes (special minerals) that dissolve in water and carry electrical charges anywhere there is water in the body.

These electrically charged minerals can freely move into a cell and back out again carrying nutrients in and removing waste products and excess water as to keep the cell balanced.

At the same time as these electrolytes move in and out of the cells making their exchanges, a delicate balance of potassium inside the cell must be maintained with a special amount of sodium and chloride to hold the potassium in the center of the cell.

Electrolytes are found in all fluids of the body and carry impulses along your nerves. This helps your muscles, like the heart and diaphragm, contract and relax.

Electrolytes carry glucose (blood sugar) into the cell after insulin opens the door

or gate for the sugar to be taken in.

Electrolytes also turn “cation pumps” that generate electricity which is stored in the Mg ATP and Mg GTP batteries of the body.

If a person loses too many of these electrolytes from having diarrhea or from taking a water pill (diuretic) they can become very sick and must go to the hospital and receive IVs of saline (salt water), dextrose (sugar water) and minerals.

Many of our beverages today contain caffeine that is a diuretic, acting as a water pill, causing a water shortage in the body. Nothing replaces plain water .

What salt does for you

Salt has many other functions than just regulating the water content of the body.

Here are some of its additional important functions in the body according to Dr.

Batman in his book, ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus on pages 144-150:

Salt is a powerful natural antihistamine. The next time you get a runny nose or watery eyes from allergies, try drinking a glass of plain water, then put a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and let it dissolve.

Asthma symptoms can be relieved by drinking one or two glasses of plain water, then putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and let it dissolve. Try it next time… before using your inhaler.

Salt helps relieve “stress” symptoms.

Salt is important for the removal of acidity from your brain cells.

Kidneys will not work correctly without salt.

Depression and emotional problems are greatly relieved by taking more salt, drinking plain water, eating correctly and walking.

Bladder control problems and unintentional urine leakage could be helped by adding more salt into your diet.

Diabetics can bring down their blood sugar levels and reduce their need for insulin by taking salt.

Irregular heartbeats may be stopped by putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and letting it dissolve.

Our digestive system requires salt to properly absorb the food we eat.

Asthma, emphysema and cystic fibrosis suffers can get rid of mucus and phlegm in the lungs by using salt and drinking plain water.

Gout symptoms can be prevented by using salt.

If you get muscle cramps (Charlie horses, etc.), salt may relieve them. Try putting a pinch of salt on the end of your tongue and let it dissolve.

Bones get their hardness from salt, not calcium.

Osteoporosis is mainly caused by not taking enough salt and water everyday

Salt is essential for preventing varicose and spider veins on the legs.

Are you having problems maintaining an erection, you need to eat more salt and drink more plain water.

Salt may help reduce a double chin. The salivary glands in your mouth sense your body is low on salt and produce more saliva. Over time, this increased production of saliva causes the saliva glands to “leak” in the area under your chin. One possible way to get rid of a double chin.

Taking salt and drinking plain water before exercising will help you to breathe better and sweat less.

Because there is potassium in almost everything we eat, salt needs to be added to our food. This will allow our body to maintain the proper balance of water between the inside and outside oceans of water in our cells.

In a study of almost 3,000 men that had high blood pressure, the men on a low-salt diet had a 430% increase in heart attacks when compared to the men who ate a high-salt diet.

Low-salt diets have also been shown to increase total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels and fasting insulin levels.

To the humans : Two sparrows cost only a penny, but not even one of them can die without your Father's knowing it. God even knows how many hairs are on your head.

No detail of your life is too insignificant for your heavenly Father's attention ; no circumstance is so big that He cannot control it.

Get into the morning/evening Sun.

Human body naturally produce cholesterol, and the skin under sunlight will manufacture the vitamin D for its usage.

Don't Forget This Heart-Healthy Nutrient
Their findings were presented at a recent American Heart Association meeting. Dr. Tami Bair and Dr. Heidi May, of the Intermountain Medical Center in Utah, highlight yet another study that shows that vitamin D deficiency can keep the heart from functioning in optimal health.

And while the researchers aren’t suggesting that inadequate levels of vitamin D cause an unhealthy state of the heart, they do suggest a link between the two—especially in light of vitamin D’s role in supporting healthy blood pressure, inflammation and blood sugar levels. All of those are critical for overall heart health.†

Surprised? Thought so.

Vitamin D has long been known to assist with proper calcium absorption and for supporting bone health, but vitamin D does far more than that.† For instance, there’s increasing evidence that vitamin D is active in many aspects of metabolism.†

Dr. Joseph B. Muhlstein, a researcher with Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah, and one of the authors of the study says, “What’s been discovered in the last few years is a significantly greater role for vitamin D. There are perhaps 200 different important metabolic processes that use vitamin D as a co-factor.” That includes heart-related function.

“A growing body of evidence suggests that low levels of vitamin D may adversely affect the cardiovascular system,” says Thomas J. Wang, M.D., assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. “Vitamin D receptors have a broad tissue distribution that includes vascular smooth muscle and endothelium, the inner lining of the body’s vessels. Our data raise the possibility that treating vitamin D deficiency via supplementation or lifestyle measures could support heart health."†

And the call for increased vitamin D intake continues.

In fact, in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 15 experts from around the world called for international agencies to “reassess as a matter of high priority” dietary recommendations for vitamin D because current advice is out of date and puts people at risk for deficiency. In fact, a review of the science indicated that the tolerable upper intake level for oral vitamin D3—which is 2,000IU in the U.S.—needs to be increased fivefold to 10,000IU per day.

James H. O’Keefe, M.D., director of preventive cardiology at the Mid America Heart Institute in Kansas City, Mo., says, “Vitamin D deficiency is an unrecognized, emerging issue, which should be screened for and responded to. Vitamin D is easy to assess, and supplementation is simple, safe and inexpensive.”

So there you have it. Vitamin D…it’s one potent nutrient you don't want to come up short on.

Do You Have Cancer and Should You Have Chemotherapy?

Ask your doctor:

1. If he is aware of a 1986 New England Journal of Medicine Report which stated that the survival rate of people who had chemotherapy was only 3%. As of 2001, these figures remain the same.

2. If a healthy immune system is the only thing that can get us well and keep us well, why would anyone give chemotherapy to a patient if it destroys your immune system?

3. To show you studies of the number of patients alive five years after chemo, and what percentage of those alive after five years are totally free of cancer. Likewise for his own patients.

4. For a copy of the 1974 Lancet Medical Journal report that says in every case that people with no chemo lived better and longer than those who had it.

5. Aren't chemo drugs made from left over, deadly, chemical warfare poisons?

6. What percentage of people who are given chemo are killed because of the toxicity of chemo?

7. Would your doctor give chemo to a member of his own family, or choose something else?

8. Does he give chemo because he knows it works or because he's been told to follow the cancer protocols because he cold get sued if he doesn't?

9. Is he interested in hearing how a famous M.D. got rid of terminal cancer without chemo, surgery, radiation or drugs?

10. If he is interested in hearing how a local man got rid of twenty-six malignant tumors and incurable cancer after Geisinger Hospital sent him home to get his affairs in order? Likewise, he had no chemo, surgery, radiation or drugs.

11. If he believes that nutrition and hydration are very important in preventing cancer and getting rid of it?

By the time your doctor answers these questions or ignores them, you should know what to do. You should also list your own questions to ask. Most importantly, listen to Dr. Lorraine Day's taped interview from 'Positive Press On The Air', WAAT 750 AM Scranton. It details much of what she did to get rid of incurable cancer. Then make your decision. Why should anyone but you decide what to do with your life?

Nice to read about your blogs on Mammograms

Nice to read about your blogs on Mammograms


From Joanne Firth (Safe Breast Imaging) to me

Dec 26 (3 days ago)

Hello

Just reading your blog on mammograms. I found your link through my google alert on Gilbert Welch, one of my favourites.

I just think we are looking at the wrong end with the whole breast cancer issue. I recently wrote to my database saying that by the time a tumour shows up on a screening mammogram, it needs to be about 1cm, which takes an average of 8 years to grow to this size and is already 1 billion cells! Isnt that amazing. I challenge my women to think about the clues we notice before then. A long as we are looking for clinically detected cancers (the threshold is quite large), we will not change outcomes.

I offer a safe and comfortable breast imaging service to Australian women of all ages, as a way to monitor their breast health. As far as I am concerned, there are plenty of experts to screen, diagnose and treat cancer. I am happy to look after the other 95% of women who do not get it!

Keep up your good work, and challenging the status quo.

Used water-cure by R.B.F

Water cured R.B.F of
Shoulder pain, back pain, and Neck pain; Weight Loss:

This letter is in reference to the book that I ordered from you in July 1996, Your Body's Many Cries for Water. I am astonished and greatly amazed at the effects that I have encountered from increasing my water intake on a daily basis.

I thought I was drinking enough water at one(1) quart daily, but after reading your book, I have increased my water intake from one to three(3) quarts every day (sometimes more with my workouts). The benefits that I have received are beyond words; and they are :
Shoulder, back and neck pain that my doctors said that I would suffer with for the rest of my life are completely gone. I have lost excess body weight. My skin has a rich glow and is extremely toned.

I could go on and on, but I just wanted to let you know that I am very glad that I found our about your book, was able to order it and not only for me, but have passed your information on to many others, and they are now drinking more plain water.

Thank you so much for your valuable information and keep up the good work.

Sincerely,
R.B.F.

How water and salt helped a former airline pilot regain his health

Former airline pilot ,Jim Bolen's letter to Dr. Batmanghelidj, M.D.
TO: Dr. Batman
FROM: Jim Bolen

I discovered the importance of water and salt to the human body in June of 1997 when I failed a medical for renewing my commercial flying license. My pressure at rest was 230/110. I was grounded and told to see my personal physician. He told me I needed blood pressure medication, but I decided I was not going on any medication yet.

I left upset, in denial. My blood pressure had always been 120/80. I got a second opinion weeks later after trying garlic, herbs, vitamins, exercise, meditation, and found it still a solid 180/100. He told me if I didn't go on medication, my heart would enlarge and I would have a heart attack or stroke down the road.
I went home, depressed. I didn't want to accept old age at 54. I was telling a friend about my situation when a retired chiropractor told me about your book ( Your Body's Many Cries for Water). He loaned me his book and told me to stop all caffeine for a week, drink ten glasses of water, and add 1/2 tsp (teaspoon)of salt to my diet.

I looked at him like he was crazy. I had been on a salt-free diet for years. Thank God for your book, Dr. Batmanghelidj, and Dr. Lee Hobson for his time and generosity.

My blood pressure is now 117/75. I'm taking no medication at all and I have unlimited energy at 58 years old. No more headache or lower back pain; sinuses are clear and no constipation.

Thankfully,

Jim Bolen
Indio, CA
==========================================
Truck driver Jim Bolen's letter above, is an interesting person. He was trained as a pilot and worked with one of the airlines. Because of a very high blood pressure he was grounded, unable to fly any longer. This is when he discovered The Water Cure and was able to lower his blood pressure with ease and without any of the usual chemicals that are prescribed for this condition. By nature, he is very inquisitive and curious to learn. He has a sharp memory for detail. He has taken to heart the information on the role of water and its curative properties and is determined to enlighten and help others.

Bolen is now a traveling missionary for The Water Cure. In US, he drives a truck the length and the breath of the country. He talks to other drivers at truck stops or through their system of radio communication. He gets them to drink water when they are tired and feel sleepy at the wheel. He gets them to give up their caffeine-containing coffee and sodas and drink water instead. He tells them about the importance of adequate salt intake in proportion to the amount of water they need. Every month, he buys several hundred dollars' worth of books and tapes and gives them to people who need the information to improve their health. He stops at churches and parishes on his way. He talks to priests on his delivery routes and give them books and videotapes to share with their parishioners. He has helped thousands of people learn about the importance of water in their lives.
==============================================

It is never too late or too early to revise and be wise again for the rest of our journey.......

Use Water-cure. Rather be thankful for the timely warning, and do something about it.

Drink at least 10% of your own daily water-quota (31.42 ml multiply by your present body weight(kg), every 90 minutes. Use 1/4 teaspoon of sea-salt in your daily diet, for every 1250 ml water drank.

Pain is a sign/signal produced by dehydration in the human body. Pain may be common but it is not normal.

To simplify complications is the FIRST essential of success.

Watch European Union

SINGAPORE AND EUROPEAN UNION
TO NEGOTIATE FREE TRADE AGREEMENT

1 Singapore and the European Union (EU) have agreed to start
negotiations for a free trade agreement (FTA). This represents a
milestone in Singapore’s relationship with the EU, with whom we have
robust and long-standing economic ties. An FTA with the EU will be a
key addition to Singapore’s network of FTAs, as the EU is Singapore’s
largest trading partner.
2 In the first 11 months of 2009, Singapore’s total trade with the EU
stood at S$78.6 billion, accounting for 11.6% of Singapore's total trade.
The EU is also Singapore’s largest investor. As at end-2007,
Singapore’s overall FDI stock from the EU stood at S$150.8 billion.
3 In 2008, Singapore was the EU’s 15th largest trading partner
globally, and EU-Singapore trade accounted for a third of all EU-ASEAN
trade, making Singapore the EU’s largest trading partner amongst
ASEAN member states.
4 The bilateral FTA will not only promote the flow of goods, services
and investment, it is also likely to enhance collaboration in areas such
as trade facilitation and technical regulations.
5 The FTA will contribute to regional economic integration by
paving the way for an EU-ASEAN FTA. Negotiations on this region-toregion
FTA began in 2007 but due to slow progress, both sides agreed
to pause in March 2009.
6 Minister for Trade and Industry Lim Hng Kiang said, “The EU’s
decision to proceed with a bilateral FTA with Singapore is a positive
development. It demonstrates the importance of this region. Singapore
is keen to see a high quality agreement that includes substantial
liberalisation across a wide range of areas. As the EU’s first FTA with an
ASEAN country, this will be a milestone agreement which will lay the
ground for an even closer relationship between the EU and ASEAN.”

Networked Warfare, adept in the ways

Monsanto's Roundup Residues in GM Food Cause Cell Damage

* GM Watch (EU), January 5, 2009
Straight to the Source

COMMENT, Dr Brian John: This new article from CRIIGEN shows that Roundup residues found in GM food and feed can cause cell damage and even death -- even at very low levels. The authors say that their research "... points to undesirable effects which are currently masked or hidden from scientific scrutiny."

Yet another example of harm associated with GM crops which are currently on the market. In this case the harm is "indirect" -- but it is nonetheless inescapable since all RR crops used for feed and food purposes will contain RR residues at or above the studied level.

Glyphosate Formulations Induce Apoptosis and Necrosis in Human Umbilical, Embryonic, and Placental Cells

by Nora Benachour and Gilles-Eric Séralini*

E-mail: criigen@unicaen.fr

Chem. Res. Toxicol., Article DOI: 10.1021/tx800218n

Publication Date (Web): December 23, 2008

Copyright © 2008 American Chemical Society

Abstract

We have evaluated the toxicity of four glyphosate (G)-based herbicides in Roundup (R) formulations, from 105 times dilutions, on three different human cell types. This dilution level is far below agricultural recommendations and corresponds to low levels of residues in food or feed. The formulations have been compared to G alone and with its main metabolite AMPA or with one known adjuvant of R formulations, POEA. HUVEC primary neonate umbilical cord vein cells have been tested with 293 embryonic kidney and JEG3 placental cell lines. All R formulations cause total cell death within 24 h, through an inhibition of the mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase activity, and necrosis, by release of cytosolic adenylate kinase measuring membrane damage. They also induce apoptosis via activation of enzymatic caspases 3/7 activity. This is confirmed by characteristic DNA fragmentation, nuclear shrinkage (pyknosis), and nuclear fragmentation (karyorrhexis), which is demonstrated by DA PI in apoptotic round cells. G provokes only apoptosis, and HUVEC are 100 times more sensitive overall at this level. The deleterious effects are not proportional to G concentrations but rather depend on the nature of the adjuvants. AMPA and POEA separately and synergistically damage cell membranes like R but at different concentrations. Their mixtures are generally even more harmful with G. In conclusion, the R adjuvants like POEA change human cell permeability and amplify toxicity induced already by G, through apoptosis and necrosis. The real threshold of G toxicity must take into account the presence of adjuvants but also G metabolism and time-amplified effects or bioaccumulation. This should be discussed when analyzing the in vivo toxic actions of R. This work clearly confirms that the adjuvants in Roundup formulations are not inert. Moreover, the proprietary mixtures available on the market could cause cell damage and even death around residual levels to be expected, especia lly in food and feed derived from R formulation-treated crops.

Press Release: CRIIGEN - January 2009

DIFFERENT ROUNDUP FORMULATIONS LEAD TO EMBRYONIC, UMBILICAL CORD AND PLACENTAL CELL DEATH AND ARE POORLY ASSESSED


For the first time, the toxicity mechanisms of four different Roundup formulations were studied in human cells. They act at doses where they are not herbicides anymore. The cells were neonatal cells freshly isolated from the umbilical cord, or less sensitive cell lines specially used to measure pollutant toxicity. The various components of these major herbicides were tested because they are among the most common in the world. Their residues are among the major pollutants, and moreover they are authorized as residues contaminating GM foods and feed at the tested levels.

As a matter of fact, Roundup formulations are the most common herbicides used with cultivated GMOs. Roundup Ready soya, the main GMO imported in Europe for food and feed, contains Roundup residues. In this research, the formulations were diluted at minimal doses (up to 100,000 times or more) and they programmed cell death in a few hours in a cumulative manner. We also noted membrane and DNA damages, and found that the formulations inhibit cell respiration. In addition, it was shown that the mixture of the components used as Roundup adjuvants amplified the action of the active principle called glyphosate; one of its metabolites may be even more toxic. These effects are greatly underestimated by the legislation, which does not take these phenomena into account, but instead simply sets arbitrary contaminant thresholds in food or feed. The rules apply to glyphosate whatever its formulation may be, this is wrong.

The authorizations for using these Roundup herbicides must now clearly be revised, since their toxic effects depend on, and are multiplied by, other compounds used in the mixtures placed on the market; and glyphosate is only one of them. The detailed blood analyses of each mammal which has received this herbicide during regulatory tests before commercial release must be published immediately, since our research points to undesirable effects which are currently masked or hidden from scientific scrutiny.

Someone is stealing your Healthy Wealth, you know?

Beyond the Dark Days: Is This What Democracy Looks Like?

In 2009, indentured politicians, bought and sold by the corporate elite, crushed our hopes for peace and prosperity by spending trillions of our tax dollars on war, Wall Street, and corporate welfare, instead of funding organic transitions and a Green New Deal. In 2010 we must begin to reverse these warped and dangerous public policies and rein in corporate greed, before it's too late.

Are you on Obama's Side?

WHICH SIDE IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ON?
Organic agriculture can feed the world, turn back climate change and make food production more resilient to droughts and floods. Organic agriculture can do it with biodiversity instead of biotech, greenhouse gas sequestration instead of emissions, natural pest management instead of toxic pesticides, humus-rich compost instead of fossil fuel fertilizers or sewage sludge, more family farmers and better conditions for farm workers.

The question of which agriculture model will dominate food production is a question we only have one opportunity to answer. Once a seed or animal variety is extinct or contaminated with foreign genes, we will never get it back. In an age when a billion people are stuffed while a billion people are starved, most people on the planet suffer from either poor nutrition, exposure to toxic ingredients, diet-related diseases, or all three. Agriculture is a life and death issue for all of us.

So, which side is the Obama Administration on? Well, who's in the Obama Administration?
Tom Vilsack, USDA Secretary

Organic Consumers Association network members sent 100,000 emails to President-Elect Obama opposing Tom Vilsack's appointment as USDA Secretary, because the former Iowa Governor was a leading advocate for Monsanto, genetic engineering, and factory farming.

Unfortunately, Obama was not moved by our protest. The reasons we opposed Vilsack were the reasons Obama appointed him. Obama lauded Vilsack for "promoting biotech."
Michael Taylor, Senior Adviser to the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner on Food Safety

We generated nearly 40,000 letters opposing former Monsanto lobbyist Michael Taylor's appointment as a senior adviser to the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner on food safety. Michael Taylor should not be a senior FDA food safety adviser. The Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto Corp. from 1998 until 2001, Taylor exemplifies the revolving door between the food industry and the government agencies that regulate it.
Dennis Wolff, the Next Food Safety and Inspection Service Chief?

So far, we've been able to keep former Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff (notorious for his support of Monsanto's controversial gene-altered Bovine Growth Hormone) out of the Administration, but he has been rumored to be in the running for Food Safety and Inspection Service chief. Dennis Wolff would be a poor choice to direct the Food Safety and Inspection Service. Wolff has no previous food safety experience and is best known for siding with Monsanto in support of its controversial gene-altered Bovine Growth Hormone.

Caroline Smith DeWaal, director of food safety at the Center for Science in the Public Interest would be a much better choice.

Now, President Obama has nominated two high-profile biotech advocates, closely connected to Monsanto and corporate agribusiness, to key USDA and trade positions.
Roger Beachy, Director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture

On October 5, 2009, Roger Beachy, long-time president of the Danforth Plant Science Center (Monsanto's nonprofit arm), became the chief of the USDA's newly created National Institute of Food and Agriculture (a nomination that doesn't require congressional approval). Roger Beachy should not be steering the direction of US agricultural research. Beachy is a long time Monsanto collaborator who heads an institute which was established by Monsanto and academic partners with a $70-million pledge from the corporation. It's effectively a Monsanto front.

How I used water to cure myself.

Polycythemia; Hypertension (How Water Cure)

Several months ago I finished reading your fascinating book "Your Body's many Cries for Water." I truly have to say that I couldn't put it down until I finished reading it. Several of my friends and family members have also read it. My brother who has some medical background, has also read it, and he found it very interesting.

I have a medical condition called Polycythemia Vera. My body produces too many red blood cells. i am on medication called hydroxyurea. Also from time to time they have to do a phlebotomy on me. I was diagnosed with this illness about nine years ago when I was 33 years old, but my doctor said that probably I had the illness several years before that. It is a rare illness usually occuring in much older people. People of my age usually do not have this illness. Nobody knows what causes this illness. I was told perhaps stress has something to do with it. Also, I used to be a security guard for several years and I worked in factories and industrial sites and perhaps I was exposed to some chemicals or toxic materials. Over the years my condition seemed to get slightly worse. i was put on hydroxyurea. The use of hydroxyrea over an extended period of time can lead in some cases of leukemia and other illnesses.

About eight months ago I read your book and I started drinking more water. I drink about 80 ounces a day. Over the years I have also suffered from hypertension and I was under a lot of pressure from my doctor to go on high blood pressure medication. At first, my blood pressure was borderline but it seemed to be getting worse. I resisted as long as I could about taking the high blood pressure medication, but I don't think that I could have resisted much longer. I started drinking 80 ounces of water a day eight months ago. Now my blood pressure is totally normal. As a matter of fact, during my last checkup one of the nurses joked that I have the blood pressure of a teenager.

As far as my Polycythemia Vera is concerned there has also been an improvement. As I mentioned above my condition seemed to be getting slightly worse. I started drinking more water eight months ago. Now my condition seems to be improving. Every three month or so I go for a check up and each time they take a sample of my blood for laboratory tests. Among the things they test for, my brother told me, is something called RDW. As best as I can explain what my brother has told me, RDW shows how healthy my cells are, whether they mutated or not. If they mutate enough, this can lead to leukemia and other medical conditions. This RDW measurement had also been getting slightly worse. The RDW number is now totally normal.

Soon I ask my doctor whether gradually I can be taken off the medication and rely more on phlebotomy. Both my doctor and my brother have talked about me doing this.

I have describes as best as I could both of my medical conditions and how by drinking more water they have both improve significantly. It is a shame that the medical establishment does not take the drinking of larger amounts of water mores seriously. I only wish I would have known about all of this many years ago. I do know that I will tell my friends and relatives about this. I wish i could do much more in helping you promote your theories.


With my best wishes, I remain
Sincerely, Ivan

Who is lying today?

We are lying to the patients, fellow doctors.
After experiencing the modern scientific, technological and materialistic civilization, it has become clear that the very existence of life on this planet may be endangered by the rapid degeneration of human health in the modern world, and that the life sciences, including the modern medical approach, have been inadequate to preserve human well-being from such universal decline.

Not only internal treatments and external surgical applications, but also the techniques of modern diagnosis itself, are frequently harmful to human health. In view of these circumstances, the renaissance of traditional wisdom based upon a more total comprehension of cosmology, including the arts of health and diagnosis, has become absolutely essential to recover humanity, individually and collectively.

When it became clear to me as a student of world peace, pursued through research in political science, that the reconstruction of humanity is the decisive factor in laying the foundations for the development of a peaceful unified world, I began to study the natural order of humanity, encouraged by senior teachers - namely Mr. George Ohsawa, Dr. Toyohiko Kagawa, Prof. Shigeru Nanba and others -- and discouraged by the lack in modern educational facilities of teachings on the medicine for humanity. I began to stand on the streets, observing thousands of people: their body structure, their way of walking, their expression, their faces, their behaviour and their thinking. Every day I observed the countless variety of human manifestations on this present earth. It became very apparent that all physical, psychological, social and cultural manifestations of human activities depend upon our environment and dietary habits.

It became clear that even so-called hereditary factors are nothing but the result of the past environment within which our ancestors lived,and what they were observing as their daily diet.

The understanding of these factors in relations to our daily condition, I noticed, was only possible by comprehending the order of the universe and its applications, and not by analytical and divisional methods of research.

It is my sincere wish that this introductory book "YOUR BODY NEVER LIES" may help every reader understand the present conditions of health of oneself, one's family, relations, friends and whomever one may encounter, and may serve as a starting point for society to recover total health and achieve freedom and happiness, toward the eventual realization of one peaceful world.

When everyone reads everyone else,
Love and compassion prevail.
When everyone reads the art of nature,
health and peace prevail.
Unwritten words are living everywhere,
And they are coming forth from the universe,
When we read them all without missing a single word,
We have opened the book of the secret of eternal life.

Michio Kushi

Knowing is the beginning of freedom.
The art of knowing is the art of realizing freedom.
All suffering comes from ignorance:
Ignorance of what I am, ignorance of who I am, of what we are.
The art of knowing is the opening of the secret of life,
And a path for health, happiness and eternal life.

Sleep in the dark

The New York Times has discovered chronobiology, including chronomodulated chemotherapy. The excellent science writer, Olivia Judson, PhD, in the course of a column on circadian rhythms, mentioned the influence that time of day has on the effectiveness of anticancer drugs. She also noted in passing that you can decrease your risk of breast and other cancers by sleeping in a really dark environment at night:

“Several of the drugs used in chemotherapy,” she wrote, “also have a ‘best’ time of day: give the drug at the right moment, and you can take a smaller dosage, get a greater benefit and have a lower risk of unpleasant side effects. Sounds good. But don’t forget: regular good sleep in a nice dark room can inhibit tumors, and may thus help you avoid chemo in the first place.”


Bravo! To my knowledge, this is the first mention of “chronomodulated chemo” in the Times and maybe is a harbinger of a more inquisitive attitude towards innovative treatments. Sadly, she fails to mention that Keith Block, MD, of the Block Center in Evaston, IL, has been practicing “chronomodulated chemotherapy” for years. Like most exciting new developments in cancer treatment, this approach has been thoroughly neglected by the leaders of the war on cancer.

In 2009, however, there was finally a conference at the New York Academy of Sciences on the topic of circadian rhythm disruption and cancer. Block, in his role as editor-in-chief of Integrative Cancer Therapies, published the proceedings of that conference in December 2009 edition of that excellent journal. Judson seems unaware of this conference or this publication.

“Chrono” is just one of the promising ways that chemotherapy could be made more effective and humane. There are others, which the Times has yet to discover.

I will repeat here the suggestions I made after I came back from the NYAS conference in June:

1. Avoid shift work, if you possibly can. Shift workers have more cancer than those who work during daylight hours. It’s unnatural for the body to be up and about in the middle of the night.

2. Sleep in as dark a room as you can manage. I installed blackout shades in my bedroom and immediately experienced better sleep. I also shut all doors that would let in outside light. (It’s dismaying how lit up the night is in most urban or suburban areas!) If necessary, use an opaque eye mask to block out light during the night.

3. Avoid blue or green nightlights, clock radios, etc. If you must have these devices, use red lights (since red light does not destroy your melatonin, which forms during the night).

4. If at all possible, do not expose yourself to light sources (by reading, watching TV, etc.) between the key hours of 2 am and 5 am. This is when you form most of your melatonin.

As soon as I greatly reduced light exposure during sleep I experienced several health benefits: I no longer have to get up often during the night and I awake more refreshed. I also have improved my general health and believe I have reduced my risk of cancer. That’s a lot of bang for the buck, especially for those who have in the past had difficulty sleeping. It’s worth trying before resorting to either natural sleep aids (such as melatonin supplements) or prescription drugs like Ambien (zolpidem), which can have serious side effects.

Healthy New Year 2010 and happy loving to learn to love. Smile means more than words.

Coca-Cola is Christmas Killer

Don't take "Energy" drinks? Why?
"Energy"drinks are unhealthy.

Don't take them as a "sport"drink.

How healthy are "energy"drinks? They are high in sugar and caffeine and contain certain unnecessary "nutrients". They all contain caffeine in quantities that food advisers said were "undesirable".
For soft drinks, the maximum caffeine level suggested by British government food advisers in 1993 was 125mg per litre.
The survey (by WHICH? magazine) found that 2 brands sold here have 3 times the amount of caffeine found in Coca-Cola.

Local "energy" drink.
Are "energy" drinks here high in caffeine too?
The Consumers Association of Penang bought 3 brands -- Power Gold, Red Bull and Livita -- and tested them for caffeine. Their test showed that all of them have caffeine above the maximum recommended dose for soft drinks.

Based on the test results:
* Power Gold has 80.13 mg/240 ml caffeine (ie about 334 mg per litre). This is more than 2&1/2 times the suggested maximum level for caffeine in soft drinks in Britain.

* Red Bull has a caffeine level of 26.4 mg/150 ml (ie 176 mg per litre).

*Livita has 17.02 mg/100 ml (ie 172 mg per litre).

Drinks like these often claim to refresh and revitalise. Don't be duped again! You have been forewarned here. Livita for instance, has these claims :"refreshes", "fight fatigue fast". One can be forgiven for thinking that these are sports drinks or drinks that can be indulged in after a strenuous workout.
The real energy drink before and after a hard work or game is use 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt for every 1250ml of plain water.

Unnecessary "nutrients"
They are also claimed to have unique formula of added vitamins and nutrients like taurine (present in Power Gold, Red Bull and Livita) and glucuronolactone ) the labels of Power Gold and red Bull say they contain D-glucuronolactone).

Taurine and glucuronolactone are naturally produced in the human body, but there is no firm evidence to support their use as a food supplement. Also isolated elements supplements will never work for the body. Other synegitic elements in organic forms are needed for natural body usage.

We are advise strongly against using these drinks as "sport"drinks.
It is important to replenish fluid after exercise, but caffeiene in drinks can only cause further dehydration and any driks with high levels of sugar are absorbed into the human body more slowly than drinks with little or no sugar.
Even if you are not into sports, taking these drinks on a regular basis is not encouraged either, especially if you are already a coffee drinker or regularly consume foods or drinks which contain caffeine (eg: soft drinks, chocolates, etc).
This is because excessive caffeine can cause palpitations, increase gastric secretions, act as a diuretic (increasing urine flow) and cause gastric ulcers.
Excessive intake of caffeine can also caise insommia,cannot sleep, nervousness and poor performance. And caffeine consumption has been linked with cystic breast disease. Water cure :Drugs kill, the human body.


It is never too late or too early to revise and be wise again for the rest of our journey.......

Use Water-cure. Rather be thankful for the timely warning, and do something about it.

Drink at least 10% of your own daily water-quota (31.42 ml multiply by your present body weight(kg), every 90 minutes. Use 1/4 teaspoon of sea-salt in your daily diet, for every 1250 ml water drank.

Fact Versus Fiction

"Calcium cure" conspiracy?
Calcium cures Conspiracy!
Coral calcium cures cancer?

Fiction: Coral calcium from Okinawa, Japan, can cure over 200 illnesses, including heart disease, Alzheimer's, and cancer.

Fact: The only thing these supplements are sure to do is put a dent in your wallet. If you still do not feel the pinch yet.

Calcium (organic form) helps prevent osteoporosis, and it may help lower blood pressure and reduce your risk of colorectal cancer. But coral calcium works no better than other calcium supplements, and it has never been proven to cure anything.
Supplement makers claim that Okinawans live longer, healthier lives because they consume coral calcium via their water source. Actually, it is largely due to their active lifestyle and diet of vegetables, fish and grains. Not western meals.
Promoters of these products also claim your body absorbs 100% of the calcium from coral calcium, compared to 1% from other supplements. In truth, your body only absorbs 25 to 35% of the calcium in any supplement, including coral calcium.
These people are charged of marketing this product with making unsubstantiated claims. Think twice before you buy their sales pitch.
Just stay with the plants and fruits calcium, they are in organic form where your body absorb 100%.

Discovery: It is the organic-calcium found in the vegetables which the Okinawans eat that provide them the needful elements the body need. Not by drinking the water with calcium from the corals as claimed. They used the water from the area to water their farm, the plants then absorbed the inorganic-calcium and transform it into organic-calcium that is suitable for animal and human consumption. Due to the frenzy caused by the marketing strategies, many ignorant people buy to their tout promotions on "CALCIUM ORGANIC " on their manufactured products.

We have wondered at their presence, and reflected on their question, and cannot but notice now their eclipse.

The dairy milk powder manufacturers are laughing their ways to the banks, milking the ignorants milk drinkers daily. Human infant must only drink from human breasts, while the billy-kids cattle must only suck from the cow's udders.

Forewarn: Avoid "Adlene" milk powder if you want to save yourself from osteoporosis. Period.

Need to unlearn many fictions in oder for fact

Even the utmost personal respect for its progenitors cannot repress our astonishment that specialist doctors can lose themselves in such cloudy ambiguities.

Some of us may be impossibly slow, but to us it sounds rather like saying, "What isn't is, yet all the same what is isn't."

How Dehydration caused Dis-eases
Persistent unintentional dehydration leaves its damaging impact in the fourth dimension of time. Caught in time, these Dis-eases conditions can be reversible , as you read and follow the simple rehydration daily.

Our human body manifests its water shortage by four(4) categories of conditions :
1. perceptive feelings;
2. drought-management programs;
3. crisis calls; and
4. complication of persistent dehydration.

1. Perceptive feelings of water shortage include : tiredness that is not the result of strenuous effort, such as feeling first thing in the morning that you do not wish to get out of the bed.
Anxiety, agitation, shortness of temper, depression, sleep disorder, craving for sodas, alcohol, and even hard drugs and agoraphobia are some of the ways our human brain reflects its water-conservation and water-regulation problems.

2. The drought-management and resource-management programs are : constipation, allergies, asthma, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and the autoimmune diseases.

3. Crisis calls : The newly understood regional thirst signals are : heartburn, rheumatoid joint pain, back pain, migraine headache, colitis pain, fibromyalgic pains , and anginal pain.

4. Complications of dehydration are very extensive and include : obesity, hemorrhoids, cholesterol plagues and arterial diseases, and type 1 diabetes, as well as serious neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, neuritis, phlebitis, lymphomas, cancers, and many more.

Medicine has traditionally divided the human body study-logy into so many specialties and subspecialities based on the different body organs ' way of revealing their water shortages. Each of these groups has its own rituals for investigating within its "fiefdom." The pharmaceutical industry has accommodated physicians and has designed medications that are used in that particular "domain" of medicine. This is why, when dehydration manifest itself in more than one organ or domain of the human body, the patient is forced to see many different specialists to address his or her organ-specific symptoms. Hence the use of so many different pills and treatment procedures, in the same person, for the same underlying cause - dehydration.Here is demonstrate how water alone naturally reverses multiple health concerns.

Simple remedies for arthritis pain.

Use natural solutions to arthritis pain. Relax.

Pain is not normal. Human body is bestow with nerves sensers to detec any abnormality and signal the mind with pain. Supressing this pain signals with pain-killer is not the solution to the underlying cause. Pain-killers only kills your body, not solving the real cause. It is a blessing in fact, because we only know the affected area is healed or cured when the pain is no more felt naturally.

Some over-the counter medications can have serious side effects. That is due to the inorganicity of the ingredients used to manufactured them. Help yourself with these natural ways to relieve pain and inflammation, reduce damage to your joints, and ease your morning stiffness.

~ Eat more vitamin-C food (see previous post "C Cruise in this blog).
~ Scarlet delidious cherries fruits can ease your pain better than ibuprofen, with no stomach upset or other side effects. Nature guaranteed.
~Add fish to your dinner menu several times a week.
~Try primrose oil.
!Enjoy foods containing beta-carotene, like carrots, broccoli, and sweet potatoes.
~Enhance desserts with flaxseed.
~Chop up ginger, and stir it into stew or toss it in your salad.
~Try the herb boswellia, known as frankincense in biblical days. All the fruits mentioned in the Bible are still good for mankind.
~Drink 8 to 10 full glasses of water each day. Interval of 90 minutes for each glass is best! Use 1/4 teaspoon of sea-salt for every 1250 ml water used.
! Mix 2 teaspoons each of apple-cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water, and drink with meals.

Who cause Stroke in You? Yourself

DEHYDRATION: THE CAUSE OF STROKES
You are going to read how this doctor rescue his own sister from permanent stroke.

(In his own words):"Talking about permanent pathology, let me tell you the story of my sister Shahla. We are a close family, and there is a particular bond between my sister and me. There is about thirteen years' different between us. When we were studying in England, away from home and parents, I was in charge. Even in later stages of her life, whenever she needed to make a serious decision, she would consult with me. As a family, we emigrated to America when living in our homeland, Iran, became hazardous after the mullahs took over in 1979 and Iran became a theocratic dictatorship. Most of us gravitated to northern Virginia, USA.

Shahla is a hard worker and a most reliable executive, and although she had a lot of upheaval in her life in exile she has not lost her cheerfulness and enthusiasm. She had recently started smoking cigarettes despite my contrary advice. She had also taken a liking to a glass of red wine now and then. She had come to Virginia to work with my younger brother, who had established himself as a developer in the area.

In the summer of 1989, Shahla wanted to relax after a lot of turmoil in her emotional life. She decided to spend some time beside the pool of her apartment complex. She was also trying to lose weight. She would spend most of her free time and the weekends at the poolside in the sun. She would also take the occasional drink of wine as she was relaxing on her poolside mat - an ideal of many people who wish to have a quiet, relaxing holiday.

On a Monday morning after a weekend by the pool, when she was working at her office, she notice tingling sensations in her left arm. Gradually the left side of her body became heavy and not sufficiently responsive. She got scared and called me. She left the office and was driven home. By the time I arrive, her left leg and left arm were in a state of partial paralysis. She could hardly move them. She was now dead scared. After a quick examination and a call to a doctor friend, I started to force into her. I managed to give her two jugs of water and one jug of orange juice with some salt, about six quarts of fluids. (1pint=16 oz. 1 quart=4pints) Her anxiety began to diminish. By the time the doctor had arrived, her arm weakness had perceptibly improved and she also had some movement in her leg muscles.

You might think that I should have called an ambulance and packed her off to the emergency room of a hospital. I did not do so because, other than receiving an intravenous drip to get some fluid into her, i believe she would have suffered other damage in the time she awaited medical attention. Anyway, she improved and improved and improved. By the late afternoon, she was well in her way to recovery. However, we needed to find out if there was any underlying local pathology in the brain that might have signaled its presence by manifesting muscle weakness on one side of her body.

A consultation with one of the local neurologists was arranged, and we went to him for an in-depth evaluation. After his examination, he confirmed a slight remaining weakness in the left side. Shahla was admitted to the hospital. After all the blood tests and noninvasive procedures such as CT scans and MRIs showed nothing, it was decided to do a cerebral angiogram to rule out a leaking aneurysm in the brain arteries.

The procedure was conducted the next day. her brain arteries were as clean as a whistle. No aneurysm, no plague, no obstruction, nothing that would account for the temporary weakness on the left side of her body. They charged her thirteen thousand dollars (US$13,000) for three nights' stay in the hospital. She did not yet have insurance to cover such expenses. Needless to say, what rest she had at the poolside she paid for with her health and money. Why ? Because of a basically wrong understanding of the way the human body works.

She had severely dehydrated her brain by the intake of alcohol, heat of the sun, dieting without water intake, and the vicious cycle of the physiological events that are set in motion when there is severe dehydration. What her brain had done was to decommission a major part of its activity that would take her to the location where she could continue the damage-producing actions.

Even in genuine situations when there is a blockage of the arteries in a region of the brain, resulting in "rotting" brain tissue, adequate intravenous hydration has produced dramatic recoveries. In experiments in animals, if intravenous fluids are given within one(1)hour of blocking the main artery to a part of the brain that would permanently destroyed about 20 percent of the blood-deprived region, the rotting area will be reduced significantly. Such is the power of water in reviving even purposely oxygen- and circulation- deprived areas of the brain.

This was the reason why I forced water on Shahla as soon as I reached her. I thought that even if she had actually clotted one of the main arteries of her brain, the water would help open the surrounding capillaries and prevent expansion of the clot beyond its already formed areas. Equally, if the neurological manifestations were due to vascular spasm, then the water would relieve the constriction in the arteries -- and it did. There was no time to wait and see; a decision and an action were vital at the very moment that Shahla showed the onset of muscle weakness that was increasing. Today, she is well. She no longer smokes, and drinks wine only on festive occasion, but drinks plenty of water -- enough to give her lots of bubbly energy.

Edmund, the husband of my office manager, a very young man, had exactly the same type of paralysis and was taken to the hospital. His wife, Joy, was informed of the devastating crisis in their family. I was nearby when she received the information. I asked her if Edmund drank enough. Apparently he would seldom drink water. I asked her to get him to drink lots of water straightaway to prevent the damage from continuing. She did, and he recovered completely. It is now four(4) years since that episode.

The moral of these stories : Give stroke candidates lots of water -- if possible, before they actually develop clots and then neurological symptoms."

Dr.F.Batmangheldj, M.D.

=========================================

Careful investigations upon all stroke patients revealed that they had unintentional caused prolonged dehydration in their bodies prior to the attack.

Our human body need water -- nothing substitutes for water. Coffee, tea, sodas, alcohol, and even cow-milk and juices are not the same as water. In fact, these beverages are adding insult to the injury(water-deficit) inside the body.

First-Aid for Stroke manifestation: If you are nearby anyone complaining about numbness or weakness of arms or legs suddenly, immediately "force" that person to drink lots of water. Never mistake motion for action. 'Motion' is busy-ing without direction whereas 'action' is right correction. First-aid is not the time to give swimming lesson or arguing about 'expert' version; it is about rescuing patient.

Observe the slimming of the hand/leg of stroke victims and we can see 'fluid-cannibalism' is going on inside the body cells. This is the body wisdom at work , survival in a dehydrated condition.

Prostate cancer victim helped

We would like to highlight this case report which has just been uploaded:

Prostate Cancer: Conversation with Stephen Taylor in Bangkok


Stephen Taylor is a well-read, 62-year-old engineer who lives in Bangkok , Thailand with his Thai wife and a thirteen-year-old daughter. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2007. Steve declined surgery and radiotherapy and opted for Intermittent Triple Androgen Blockage Therapy (ITAB) instead. The ITAB therapy had achieved its intended purpose when his PSA declined from 19.6 to 0.01. The treatment provided a reassurance. But it came with the cost of numerous side effects. Unfortunately, this security did not last long. After the hard knock hormonal treatment, his PSA started to rise again. Steve sought our help and took seriously to the CA Care Therapy.

Wikipedia: The Matrix encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org

The Great Lie of Wikipedia: "the....encyclopedia that anyone can edit."
[This is a large web based encyclopaedia. Anyone can edit it in theory, but in practice Medical/Allopathic editors (most known as Physicians Wikipedians, 178 of them) will not allow any text critical to Allopathy or non-Allopathic thinking, delete any external links they don't like (eg: 1), as well as deleting or attempting to delete pages they don't like--in effect it should be treated as a Pharma shill. You can see the page deletion attempts here. All of the vaccine, disease pages and psychiatric drug pages (basically just an on line PDF of BNF) are written by Allopaths, and policed by Allopaths. The main Allopath dealing with vaccination is known as Midgley. All links to whale.to were officially banned after rfc, even to original Smallpox vax books. Now Whale.to is on what is called a "spam blacklist" block. What are they afraid of? They are afraid of the truth on vaccination and the vaccine diseases.


[Harris L. Coulter, PhD is a medical historian and lecturer who has published in many areas including homeopathic medicine, cancer, and the dangers of vaccinations with two DPT vaccine danger classics: DPT Shot in the Dark with Barbara Loe Fisher, (which was instrumental in making the law compensating vaccine injuries) and Vaccination, Social Violence and Criminality where he commented : 'I came to the conclusion that this, DPT, vaccination is having a very long-term serious effect on the American population in the sense of being directly responsible for the epidemic of violent behavior we are witnessing in our society today.'
He earned his PhD in 1969 from Columbia University, NY, in a dissertation entitled Political and Social Aspects of Nineteenth-Century Medicine in the United States: The Formation of the American Medical Association and its Struggle with the Homeopathic and Eclectic Physicians. Coulter has been considered the leading homeopathic historian of the late 20th century.
His most significant body of work is his four-volume treatise on the history of Western medicine, Divided Legacy: A History of the Schism in Medical Thought, which details the two distinct schools of medical thought and practice since the times of Hippocrates to the present: the rational approach and the empirical approach and in which he documents the suppression of Homeopathy by Allopathy (rational approach).
He has served on numerous medical advisory panels and boards, and has given input about the conflict between the American Medical Association (AMA) and homeopathy.

Classic quote:
"Society today is paying a heavy price in disease and death for the monopoly granted the medical profession in the 1920’s. In fact, the situation peculiarly resembles that of the 1830s when physicians relied on bloodletting, mercurial medicines, and quinine, even though knowing them to be intrinsically harmful. And precisely the same arguments were made in defense of these medicines as are employed today, namely, that the benefits outweigh the risks. In truth, the benefits accrue to the physician, while the patient runs the risks."—Harris Coulter (Divided Legacy Vol 3)

Lifestyles which damage ourselves/survival

Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2 . Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our 20 body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6 . Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest.. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells..

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain .

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.

2. Not urinating in the morning.

3. Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil.
As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is20very fit.

8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'

The top five cancer-causing foods are:

1.Hot Dogs

Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and Bacon

Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts

Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries

Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies

All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

Know and aware of the difference

Please pass this on to family and friends. Especially people with children!

H1N1 flu is about to be upon us and we need to be on top of information regarding it. Here is a comparison to the
normal cold symptoms .

Know the Difference between a Cold and H1N1 Flu Symptoms
Symptom :
Cold(C).
H1N1 Flu(HNF)

1.Fever :
(C)Fever is rare with a cold.
(HNF)Fever is usually present with the flu in up to 80% of all flu cases. A temperature of 100°F or higher for 3 to 4 days is associated with the H1N1flu.

2.Coughing:
(C) A hacking, productive (mucus- producing) cough is often present with a cold.
(HNF) A non-productive (non-mucus producing) cough is usually present with the H1N1 flu (sometimes referred to as dry cough).

3.Aches :
(C)Slight body aches and pains can be part of a cold.
(HNF)Severe aches and pains are common with the H1N1 flu.

4.Stuffy Nose :
(C)Stuffy nose is commonly present with a cold and typically resolves spontaneously within a week.
(HNF)Stuffy nose is not commonly present with the H1N1 flu.

5.Chills :
(C)Chills are uncommon with a cold.
(HNF)60% of people who have the H1N1 flu experience chills.

6.Tiredness :
(C)Tiredness is fairly mild with a cold.
(HNF)Tiredness is moderate to severe with the H1N1 flu.

7.Sneezing :
(C)Sneezing is commonly present with a cold.
(HNF)Sneezing is not common with the H1N1 flu.

8.Sudden Symptoms :
(C)Cold symptoms tend to develop over a few days.
(HNF)The H1N1 flu has a rapid onset within 3-6 hours. The flu hits hard and includes sudden symptoms like high fever, aches and pains.

9.Headache:
(C)A headache is fairly uncommon with a cold.
(HNF) A headache is very common with the H1N1 flu, present in 80% of flu cases.

10.Sore Throat:
(C) Sore throat is commonly present with a cold.
(HNF)Sore throat is not commonly present with the H1N1 flu.

11.Chest Discomfort :
(C)Chest discomfort is mild to moderate with a cold.
(HNF)Chest discomfort is often severe with the H1N1 flu.


The only way to stop the spread of the epidemic is to spread the awareness.

Body lack of water will compromise the overall immunity system. Remember the water-cure protocol formula found here.

Enjoy.

Avocado can do you good, baby.

Avocado Nutrition Structure/Function Statements
Avocados contain 81 micrograms of the carotenoid lutein, which some studies suggest may help maintain healthy eyes.

Avocados are included in Fruits & Veggies-More Matters™ consumer educational program to promote increased consumption of fruits and vegetables for good health.

Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds that can contribute to the nutrient quality of your diet.

Avocados, due to their mono and polyunsaturated fat content, are a healthy substitution for foods rich in saturated fat.
One-fifth of a medium avocado (1 oz) has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals making it a good nutrient choice.

Avocados contain 76 milligrams beta-sitosterol in a 3-oz serving of avocado. Beta-sitosterol is a natural plant sterol which may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Avocados and Babies
The avocado's smooth, creamy consistency makes it one of the first fresh fruits a baby can enjoy. Sodium- and cholesterol- free, avocados contain valuable nutrients including 8% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for folate; 4% DV for fiber and potassium, 4% DV for vitamin E; and 2% DV for iron. A serving of avocado also contains 81 micrograms of the carotenoid lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene. Per serving, avocados have 3.5 grams of unsaturated fats, which are known to be important for normal growth and development of the central nervous system and brain.

Avocados Nutrient Profile:
One-fifth of a medium avocado, or about one ounce, has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 beneficial nutrients to the diet.
Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are thought to help prevent many chronic diseases.
Avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, including 4% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, 8% folate, 4% fiber, 2% iron, 4% potassium, with 81 micrograms of lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene.
Avocados act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha- and beta-carotene as well as lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

Avocados and Heart Disease:
Avocados can help consumers meet the dietary guidelines of the American Heart Association, which are to eat a diet that is low to moderate in fat. The fats should be primarily unsaturated and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. The avocado is virtually the only fruit that has monounsaturated fat.
Avocados help assist consumers in meeting a major dietary goal of reducing saturated fat in the diet, when they are consumed in place of saturated-fat containing foods.

Avocado and Weight Loss/Maintenance:
When used instead of other fats, avocados contribute nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients and can be part of a calorie-reduced diet.
Avocados can be a satisfying addition to a calorie-reduced diet, when they are eaten in lieu of other fats.
When enjoyed in place of other fats, avocados can be a satisfying addition to a calorie-controlled diet.

Spread and Dip Nutritional Comparison for Fresh Avocados:
Fresh avocado on sandwiches and toast or substituted as a spread in place of many other popular foods may help reduce dietary intake of calories, fat, saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol.

Want to reduce your cholesterol intake? Try fresh avocado on sandwiches and toast or substitute as a spread in place of many other popular foods to reduce your intake of cholesterol, calories, fat, saturated fat, and sodium.
Looking for a twist on spreads and dips? A 1-ounce serving of fresh avocados contain 0mg of cholesterol, 0mg of sodium, 0.5g saturated fat. See the chart below for examples of how fresh avocados are a great substitute on sandwiches, toast or substituted as a spread in place of many other popular foods.
Try fresh avocado on sandwiches and toast in place of many other popular foods to reduce your intake of cholesterol, calories, fat, saturated fat, and sodium.

Reference: USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 18 (2005) and FDA Food Labeling Guidelines for Voluntary Nutrition Labeling of Raw Fruits, Vegetable and Fish (Vol. 71, No. 159); Appendix C to Part 101 - Nutrition Facts for Raw Fruits and Vegetables (2006).

Nutritional values are for the item listed only; not as consumed with other foods or ingredients.
Avocados and Lutein:
Avocados are a good way to get more lutein in the diet. An ounce of avocado contains 81 micrograms of lutein. Lutein has been shown to be concentrated in the macula of the eye, and research suggests that it may help maintain healthy eyesight as we age.
Lutein is a natural antioxidant that may help maintain eye health as we get older. By adding avocado to foods like salads, salsa, soups or sandwiches you can get more of the phytonutrient lutein in your diet.

Hello Brainy, time to do more and talk less?

http://www.news.com.au/technology/story/0,28348,26271082-5014239,00.html Brain surgeon Dr Charlie Teo warns against mobiles, home appliances
By Cheryl Critchley

Herald Sun,October 28, 2009 02:00am


Dr Charlie Teo, from Channel 7's Last Chance Surgery, says it's better to avoid electro-magnetic radiation

Surgeon warns of electromagnetic radiation
Takes 'prevention better than cure' approach
Global study: Mobile cancer link
Mobiles: How much radiation is there?

BRAIN cancer surgeon Charlie Teo has urged people to put mobile phones on loudspeaker, move clock radios to the foot of the bed and wait until microwaves have finished beeping before opening them.

The controversial Sydney specialist told a Melbourne fundraiser that although the jury was still out on mobile phones and other forms of electromagnetic radiation, we should not take risks.
"Even though the jury's not in, just to err on the side of safety I would try and limit the amount of electromagnetic radiation that you're exposed to," he said.

"The American government, for example, recommend that all electrical appliances should be put at the foot of the bed and not the head of the bed.

"Electric blankets should be turned off before you get in bed and definitely wait for those five beeps before you open the microwave.

"With the mobile phone I encourage you to put it on loudspeaker and step outside rather than sticking it up to your brain."

Global study into mobile cancer linkNEWS.com.au, 26 Oct 2009

Dr Teo, who tackles tumours other surgeons deem inoperable, said some hair dyes, particularly red, could also cause brain cancer in people with a predisposition.

"The body needs some genetic predisposition. The hair dye, the mobile phone, they're just catalysts but you probably need some sort of genetic aberration to get the cancer in the first place," he said.

Fast cancers

Dr Teo, who stars in Channel Seven's Last Chance Surgery, was in Melbourne last week for the Blackwood8 fundraiser at Croydon golf club.

The group was founded by family and friends of Sally White, a patient of Dr Teo's whose outlook has improved dramatically.

Dr Teo said while breast cancer doubled its cell numbers in weeks or months, the quickest brain cancers took just 16 hours.

No age group was immune and the incidence of brain tumours was growing.

"It's increasing in frequency both in this country and developing countries and it used to be ranked out of the top 10 but it's just joined the top 10 most common cancers," he said.

Recent studies have raised alarm bells about mobile phones.

An unreleased World Health Organisation study reportedly found "a significantly increased risk" of some brain tumours related to use of mobile phones for 10 years or more.

A Suleyman Demirel University study in Turkey also found wearing a mobile phone on your belt may lead to decreased bone density in an area of the pelvis commonly used for bone grafts.
Dr Teo said there had been some advancements in treating tumours, like microwave therapy and putting chemotherapy directly into a tumour. A healthy diet, meditation and positive thought could also be beneficial.

"We believe that they probably boost the immune system," he said.

Dr Teo's tips to reduce brain tumour risks

- Get eight hours sleep a night and eat well to boost your immune system
- Keep electrical appliances like clock radios at the foot of the bed
- Turn electric blankets off before retiring
- Put mobile phones on hands-free
- Wait until the microwave finishes beeping before opening it

I think this is just about the best advise I've heard: in the absence of concrete evidence either way, err on the side of caution. I'd be interested to hear Charlie's view on wireless internet connections, that are now just about everywhere. Are they potentially dangerous, or are they a completeley different type of thing?

Mobile phones, as with any radio wave transmitting device, should be labelled "minimun exposure is prudent".. but they never will; users quote 'convenience' as the #1 reason for using wireless, and that's just pure laziness.

No one has the answers, but the decision is simple. You either follow the thought pattern below: Avoid pesticides (Eat Organic) Don't use microwaves Try meditate Avoid Sodium Laureth Sulfate Avoid food preservatives Do not eat margarine Filter your water very well. and so on... If you believe it, follow it, like I do. If you don't believe it, then keep using microwaves and doing what you do. Cancer may be just a roll of the dice.? Who knows? Not me.

Agree with neurodoc. Charlie i admire your work but be part of the scientific solution, not just the vocal one. I appreciate the connection but no-one is able to categorically prove the connection, nor make the effort to do so. Literature searches don't save lives research does. The beeps mean that the thing has finished. If it was dangerous to open the door there would be locks on them until you hit a "stop button. Hair colouring use a colour and peroxide. The enter the hair-dead tissue by the way- and stay there. Doomsayers have littered the Internet with unfounded pseudoscience. Red dyes is another one. There is more risk from getting diesal on your hand at the servo, yet none of you wear gloves to fill up.

U r right Steve - it is so easy to dismiss advice because there is always a greedy lawyer and ppl crying that they didn't know... Ppl are still trying it with cigarettes! And watching gluttonous eaters and boozers cry that the heart disease crept up on them or their kidneys just failed, no warning. I had a clock radio near my bed and didn't link it to the difficulty in breathing and palpitations I got when trying to sleep... One day I unplugged it while cleaning and forgot to plug it back in... Night one - no palpitations... I left it out. One day out of interest I plugged it back in...you guessed it, the problems came back... If one device can disrupt my heart in such a way, imagine 9 hours a night, 365 days of the year....

He is a neurosurgeon and a very good one too. But he is not a researcher into the cause of brain tumours and he - at least in this article - does not validate his comments with evidence. Technical gadgets are frightening to people who don't understand how they work. And a neurosurgoen like Dr Teo, who enjoys a very popular status certainly can add to such anxiety. Hairdryers create an electromagnetic field which is amongst the strongest if not the strongest of all house hold appliances. However they have been around forever, people grew up with them ( putting them close to their head, just like mobile phones) and think they understand how they work. Therefor they must be much safer than mobile phones or other more modern stuff.

The moniker "Controversial specialist" is the most accurate statement in this article. For some rational perspective on risk taking Dr Teo rides a motorcycle. Note also that microwaves travel at the speed of light, so one would have to open the door very fast indeed if the microwaves were still "diffusing". Accepting that Dr Teo may have been quoted out of context, I suggest Dr Teo studies the evidence before he speaks on electromagnetic radiation to lay people, and while he is at it allow himself to become involved in existing academic peer review and clinical governance programs. This will be important for optimal patient outcomes.

If all this is so bad for you why are they not banned. I do not understand as Cigarettes are bad for you ( I agree), Achohol is bad for you( In moderation they say). The government won't have to worry about young ones of today living a long while with all these modern cons. I guess that is why my mum is still alive at 92 because she did not have all these thing s when she was young. Oh and by the way she is still dying her hair blond not red. I do believe it is in the genes. Good luck everyone as I think that is what you need these days and lots of it!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't seriously believe people are so stupid as to believe there is "residual radiation" in a microwave after it stops. It's electro-magnetic radiation that propagates at (300,000 kms/sec) LIGHT SPEED! It's like saying there is still "residual" light in a room 1-5 seconds after you flick the light-switch!

We have an early 80s microwave that has no '5 beep warning' all it has is a bell when the dial reaches 0 minutes. I never wait for that bell because most of the time I only want to heat something for less than a minute, so I just open the door mid-heating session. Is that bad for me?

Perhaps waiting for the 5 microwave beeps is a way to delay close proximity to components within the microwave that may still be emitting radiation in the initial moments after the heating/cooking process has stopped. Red hair dye might sound stupid, but then again I'm no brain surgeon - this guys is, so I'm more inclined to listen than ingore. Lucky for me I'm a Ranga.

Its not until you've had cancer that you really sit up and take notice of these stories. The problem with defining what causes cancer is that there are so many environmental factors at play, its hard to prove any one of them might have an influence above the rest. If a promient brain surgeon says don't use red hair dye or use your mobile phone too much, its because he wants to see less people get the disease. He's not getting sponsored by anyone to say these things.

Red of Sydney - hair dyes have been implicated in a number of different cancers, particularly bladder and brain, with those who use permanent dyes frequently (10 times a year) at a high risk of developing bladder cancer. There are plenty of research articles to back this up.

The beeps indicate that there is still residual microwave radiation inside. Opening the door before the beeps finish doesn't give enough time for the residual radiation to diffuse.
