Powerful Tips For Your Health

powerful-tips-for-your-health_300Seniors, take note: Cholesterol is in your favor after about age 75. The higher your cholesterol, the longer you will live, so say studies. Cholesterol drugs are commerce, in my opinion. Cod liver oil and fish oil are the naturals for blood thinners and very, very essential omega-3s. Beware, though, if you bite through a fish oil capsule and it tastes fishy, don’t take it because it’s rancid.

There is nothing better than fish oil and cod liver oil for men’s prostate. Herbal supplements help, but the fish oil is basic.

Pitfalls And Detours

High insulin: Equals more fat and more inflammation because the more obese we are, the more insulin we are making and the more inflammation we are generating. This is what we call compounding in reverse. Again, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids have profound anti-inflammatory effects. Cod liver oil is all Grandma had, and she lived to be 91. Eat sardines every time you can. She did.

Reduce calories: I don’t want to hear it, but my study more and more says that to slow down the aging process, reduce calories. Our body works itself to death processing food.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT): The number one alternative to HRT is black cohosh, which is excellent for hot flashes. Ignore bad studies by people who don’t like herbs; they are nonsense. Take 100 mgs to 500 mgs of black cohosh daily, as your needs demand. And yes, you need quality herbs from Western Europe and Australia, where a strict code of pharmaceutical good manufacturing practices is applied by law to herbal products.

CoQ10 to prevent strokes: Take 100 mg to 400 mg per day, says Dr. James Balch. If you are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins), you had absolutely better take CoQ10.

Blood sugar: To lower blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides and to cleanse the liver, take milk thistle.

Probably the most inexpensive item you should keep in your medicine cabinet (usually costing about $1.)Allergic reactions: If you suffer a serious reaction but not yet an emergency requiring a trip to the hospital, stirring sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) in water and drinking it as rapidly as possible can bring the reaction under control in quick time. Why does it work? Acute allergic reactions bring on a rapid acidification of the bloodstream. Baking soda neutralizes the acidity quickly and can usually reverse the allergic reaction. Immunizations and vaccinations made with live viruses have increased dramatically in the past 25 years. Immune systems, especially in children, can’t handle the load. So allergic reactions go up and up. Immunizations of innocent children represent an assault by the state upon their person.

Stomach acid: Activates pepsin, an enzyme secreted by the stomach lining to digest proteins into amino acids and peptides. Many seniors are starving to death because they are not digesting proteins for lack of stomach acid. Lots of chronic illness and death originates from low stomach acid. TV commercials pepper us with messages promoting antacids. This should be exposed as murder. It never will be. The simple answer is betaine hydrochloride, which you can get from a supplement company.

Constipation: To improve elimination, use one or two of these:

  • Olive oil: 4 ounces of extra virgin olive oil with a juice.
  • Ascorbic acid: Commonly known as vitamin C. This will flush you in a hurry. If too acidic, get sodium ascorbate.
  • Magnesium: One gram, three times a day.

Most people need only one of these. All are good for you. I know that you need the magnesium, whoever you are. The research is mind-boggling! More than 90 percent of the American people are low in magnesium.

Obesity Rates

Why is the obesity rate in France significantly lower than the rate in the United States? The answer is the French eat animal fat, raw butter, cream, steak and duck. Americans eat sugar in large amounts.

Have you noticed that establishment medicine and media blame smoking and cholesterol for most of our health problems? They never mention sugar, the actual killer. The Sugar Trust won’t let them.

Yes, it is very difficult to eat in America without sugar. Food processors see to this.

Most diseases in America are really just one disease: the sugar disease.

Prostate Problem

Prostate cancer witchcraft: Above I mentioned how important omega-3 fatty acids are. So is testosterone. Establishment medicine tries to reduce testosterone with what it calls an androgen blockade. The foolish theory is that testosterone causes prostate cancer, so establishment medicine attempts to cut off testosterone in prostate cancer patients so it won’t “drive tumor growth.”

Men who get prostate cancer usually have very low testosterone. This is age-related. Young men have peak testosterone, and almost none have prostate cancer. According to this, don’t the medical people have all this backward?

Incidentally, the success rate is near zero. If you survive the witchcraft, you would have survived anyway.

Your urologist may not agree. But, men, your first line of defense against prostate cancer may be a high blood level of testosterone.

Says Dr. William Douglas in Real Health Breakthroughs: Testosterone is very protective, as well as an anti-aging hormone for men. We should strive to maintain a testosterone blood level of the average 20-year-old man. You can get 5 percent testosterone cream by prescription from your compounding pharmacy or get the same effect with a homeopathic compound.

Zinc deficiency and cancer: Zinc deficiency in the U.S. is common, since soils are progressively more depleted; plus, it is removed from processed foods. Zinc deficiency causes the overuse of salt and loss of sense of taste.

People with zinc deficiency are at increased risk for getting esophageal and oral cancers. Zinc deficiency creates damage in the genes that leads to cancer in many ways. According to studies referenced by Dr. Sherry Rogers, correcting zinc deficiency reversed cancers.

Coughing, codeine and cocoa: Theobromine in cocoa is 30 percent more effective for stopping a persistent cough than codeine. It has to be cocoa, not just chocolate.

Salt: You have to have it. Dietary sodium causes elevated blood pressure in only 5 percent to 10 percent of salt-sensitive people. Please don’t use refined salt (sodium chloride). Get sea salt from The Grain and Salt Society.

Is your food “natural,” “free range” or “organic”? Who knows? My best guess is that these captions, more than anything else, bring higher prices.
