What Your Doctor May Not Be Telling You About Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is not an isolated disease. You just don't develop type 2 diabetes overnight. Diabetes is actually an intricate part of a group of metabolic disorders often referred to as the metabolic syndrome. These metabolic disorders appear in stages with each stage amplifying and reinforcing all the other stages.

The stages leading to type 2 diabetes include, but are not limited to are acidosis, insulin resistance, hyperglycemia, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high blood pressure and obesity (especially abdominal).

There are acute differences between early and advanced stages of acidosis, the metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Thus, it doesn’t make sense to treat all people with type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome the same. In the early stages of the diabetes, people suffer from both hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. In the latter stage of diabetes, people suffer from heart disease, cancer and digestive disorders. That's why the management of diabetes depends on the stages of the disease.

Most conventional doctors will only treat you for high blood sugar and your cholesterol levels. That is not going to get it done. That is only scratching the surface of these metabolic disorders. You have to take the time and do your own research and you can start right here.

Natural Physicians Formulas Common Diabetic Complications

The following health conditions are the most common and serious diabetic complications. I believe that diabetic complications can and should be treated individually using natural measures, in addition to treating the diabetes itself. By Dr Julian Whitaker

What can I do to prevent diabetes?

Diabetes is an insidious disease that dramatically increases risk of vision loss, kidney disease, lower extremity amputations, and premature death from heart disease. The good news is that research shows that type 2 diabetes can be prevented with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and weight loss.

Dietary fiber is an important factor in diabetes prevention and control, so start with a fiber-rich diet with lots of vegetables and legumes and modest amounts of fruit. At the same time, go easy on starchy foods such as potatoes and anything made with white flour, white rice or sugar. In addition to driving up blood sugar, these foods also contribute to weight gain, a significant risk factor for diabetes. Also include lean chicken, fish, or soy with most meals, along with healthy, non-processed fats from raw nuts and seeds and olive oil.

Exercise is also imperative. No matter what shape you’re in, find a way to exercise regularly. Thirty to 45 minutes of activity most days of the week will make a surprising difference in your health, weight, insulin sensitivity, and risk of disease, including diabetes.

Deficiencies in certain nutrients can also tax blood sugar-regulating mechanisms, so make sure you’re taking a high-potency daily multivitamin and mineral supplement as well

The Best Supplements for Diabetes

While eating a healthy diet (which includes intermittent fasting) and exercising regularly are necessary to lower blood sugar, these are not the only parts of my natural approach to managing diabetes.

Nutritional support is also a key component of treating the disease.

Supplements to Manage Diabetes Are Critical

One reason nutritional support is so important is because diabetes is a nutritionally wasting disease. Elevated glucose levels act like a diuretic and cause substantial loss of nutrients in the urine. Therefore, people with type 2 diabetes are likely to be deficient in important water-soluble vitamins and minerals.

Incredibly, most experts specializing in diabetes make no attempt whatsoever to replace lost nutrients, leaving their patients to suffer the inevitable consequences of nutritional deficiencies.

A second reason nutritional supplements for diabetes is essential is that carefully increasing your intake of nutrients that support your body’s ability to use insulin can help keep your blood sugar at healthy levels.

Anyone who has diabetes should—at a minimum—take a high-quality vitamin and mineral supplement every day. Research has shown that taking a potent daily multivitamin dramatically reduces the incidence of infection and the number of sick days taken by patients with type 2 diabetes.

In addition to a multivitamin, make sure you are getting the following nutrients. Many are included in multivitamins, but not always at the dosages I recommend. If your multi comes up short, supplement with additional doses of the specific nutrients until you’re taking the recommended amount.

The most important alkalizing minerals include calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, sulfur, chlorine and phosphorus. These are sometimes called the electrolytes or the macro-minerals. These are found in the greatest in quantity in our bodies.

Blood levels of these elements remain fairly constant. If they vary even a little, especially the first four, the person feels quite ill and it is a bad sign. Type 2 diabetes is a sign that your body could be deficient of all of these minerals.

You should supplement your diet with these critical minerals to restore pH balance to your body.

You must eat more alkalizing foods to help your body eliminate waste effectively and resort its critical pH balance.

B-Complex Vitamins

Vitamins B6 and B12 specifically support nerve health, which is critical for addressing conditions such as diabetic neuropathy. Biotin is another B-complex vitamin that is necessary for both metabolism and growth. Biotin is also involved in the manufacture and utilization of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Take 75 mg of B6, 150 mcg of B12, and 300 mcg of biotin daily.

Vitamin C

Since our body doesn’t produce it – vitamin C is essentially the most important vitamin you’ll ever consume for overall good health. Vitamin C can help prevent, lessen, and even reverse degenerative health problems, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease. It offers protection against colds and flu and can eliminate the threat of every virus known to man – if taken in large enough dosages.

One of the most important health tips you’ll ever receive – would be to consume vitamin C, on a daily basis. Generally speaking, most people would benefit from 1 to 2 grams of vitamin C (daily) – but those suffering from serious health conditions may require substantially more. Always consult a qualified healthcare provider for best results. I recommend at least 2,000 mg of vitamin C daily.

Vitamin D turns on genes that boost production of antimicrobial peptides called cathelicidins, which destroy viruses, bacteria and other germs. Because people with diabetes are more prone to infections due to diabetic ulcers and periodontal disease, making sure your body has optimal levels of this fat-soluble vitamin is important. I recommend at least 2,000 IU of supplemental vitamin D (as cholecalciferol or D3) daily.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is another essential vitamin found in whole foods that has significant health promotion activities. An excellent antioxidant, vitamin E is important for the integrity of all of your cells' membranes—the protective gateways that allow nutrients in and wastes out, while keeping potentially destructive molecules from entering your cells. Vitamin E has been shown to protect from arterial damage, which it does by directly inhibiting the production of the damaging molecule, oxidized LDL cholesterol.

Vitamin E is the body’s premier fat-soluble antioxidant. It improves glucose control and protects blood vessels and nerves from free radical damage, which is accelerated by the diabetes. Studies have shown that high doses of supplemental vitamin E may even reverse damage to nerves caused by diabetes and protect against diabetic cataracts and atherosclerosis. I recommend that everyone, regardless of health status, take at least 300 IU of vitamin E every day.

When taking vitamin E, take only the natural form of it. You can tell it’s natural if it’s listed as d-alpha-tocopherol or d-alpha-tocopheryl. Synthetic vitamin E is listed as dl-alpha-tocopherol or dl-alpha tocopheryl (note the “l”).

Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral crucial for energy production and protein synthesis, cellular replication and DNA production. Magnesium has also been shown to decrease insulin resistance, helping to keep blood sugar levels in check. I recommend 500–1,000 mg of magnesium daily.

Vanadium

Vanadium (as vanadyl sulfate) mimics insulin in the body and helps maintain normal blood sugar levels. The suggested dose is 100 mg daily.

Chromium

Chromium is a trace mineral that improves the action of insulin and helps move glucose and other nutrients into the cells. Chromium doesn’t cause the body to make more insulin—it just helps insulin work better.

At least 15 well-controlled clinical trials examining the effects of supplemental chromium on patients with diabetes, insulin resistance and other blood sugar abnormalities have shown that this mineral improves glucose metabolism. I recommend 200 mcg of chromium picolinate daily.

Berberine

Berberine, a plant alkaloid, targets AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which is a very basic and ancient regulator of metabolism present in all animals and plants. AMPK stimulates the uptake of glucose into the cells, improves insulin sensitivity and reduces glucose production in the liver, which is in overdrive in diabetic patients. I recommend 1,500 mg of berberine daily.

Omega 3 Fats

• Diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids may decrease insulin resistance in people with diabetes.

• Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke, macular degeneration, and certain types of cancer.

If you have metabolic syndrome, it means you are already well along the road to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other life-threatening disorders. Fortunately, Omega-7 works in five distinct and complementary ways to reduce most of metabolic syndrome’s harmful effects on your health:

It reduces insulin resistance and lowers blood glucose, It suppresses fat production and accumulation, It normalizes abnormal lipid profiles (including raising beneficial HDL-cholesterol), It fights obesity. It powerfully suppresses the inflammation that drives metabolic syndrome

Pomegranate Reverses Atherosclerosis and Slows the Progression of Prostate Cancer

Quercetin Can Restore and Refurbish Mitochondria

Studies show that quercetin triggers reverse cholesterol transport, which results in the removal of cholesterol from the arterial wall by HDL for transport to the liver for safe disposal. Excitingly, quercetin has been found to activate the brain’s powerful natural antioxidant defense system (called Nrf2) that upgrades cellular defenses such as glutathione and prevents brain cell death. As a neuroprotective agent, quercetin protects brain cells against excitotoxicity, the damage done by repeated excitatory electrical impulses observed in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Quercetin, found in onions and apples, has now been shown to preserve mitochondria in the heart, brain, liver, and skeletal muscles. Quercetin boosts cardiovascular function, muscular endurance and performance, protects against loss of brain cells, corrects blood glucose and lipid abnormalities in metabolic syndrome, and shows evidence of anticancer and bone health-promoting properties.

Cardiovascular Health

Many nutrients support cardiovascular health. However, if you have type 2 diabetes, these five—when taken in addition to a high-quality daily multivitamin—are especially helpful.

Some of the nutrients specifically address the cardiovascular side effects of excess blood sugar—namely stiffened arteries and blood vessels, thickened blood, and impaired circulation. The others help address an important consequence of impaired circulation, which is the delivery of nutrients to cells.

Treatments for Diabetic Neuropathy

B vitamins. Patients with diabetic neuropathy are often deficient in B-complex vitamins. Be sure to take 1,500 mcg of B12 daily, in addition to 150 mg of B6, which helps prevent diabetes-related damage to the nerves, blood vessels, kidneys and eyes. Also, benfotiamine, a fat-soluble, highly absorbable form of thiamine (vitamin B1), has been shown to reduce diabetic pain and improve nerve conduction velocity. Take 150–450 mg per day.

Alpha lipoic acid is an extraordinary antioxidant that has been shown in clinical studies to improve diabetic pain, burning, numbness and other symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. Antioxidants are particularly important because diabetes unleashes a storm of free-radical damage, which plays a key role in the vascular and nerve damage that underlie diabetic complications. Take 600–1,200 mg per day.

Fish oil. For years, people with type 2 diabetes were advised to avoid fish oil because of its presumably negative effects on blood sugar control. However, a recent meta-analysis of prior studies found that fish oil doses ranging from 3,000 to 18,000 mg per day had no harmful effect on blood glucose control—and significantly improved triglyceride levels.

Furthermore, inflammation is a factor with diabetic neuropathy, and fish oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties. I recommend taking a minimum of 2 g of high-quality fish oil per day.

Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) has been shown in studies to prevent the deterioration of diabetic neuropathy and, in some cases, even reverse the condition. Borage and evening primrose oils are the best sources of GLA. I recommend supplementing with evening primrose oil at a starting dose of 500–1,500 mg per day.

Acetyl-l-carnitine improves nerve function, stimulates nerve fiber regeneration and relieves diabetic pain. Take 500–1,000 mg per day.

Diabetic retinopathy and other eye problems

Can-C Eye Drops ) for Healthy Vision

L-carnosine is a natural combination of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. In addition to being a potent antioxidant, it is considered the strongest glycation-inhibiting agent ever discovered.

Carnosine competes with proteins for binding sites on sugar molecules, which helps limit glycation and further protein damage. Furthermore, carnosine is believed to bind and modify AGEs that have already formed, which helps our cells target them for removal.

One of the best ways to take L-carnosine is by using special eye drops that contain it. The suggested dose is 1 to 2 drops in each eye daily. If you have a degenerative eye condition, check with your physician before using them for healthy vision. Grape Seed Extract as a Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Grape seed extract is a powerful antioxidant that protects blood vessels and capillaries from free-radical damage. Research also shows that grape seed extract can specifically help prevent diabetic retinopathy symptoms.

When taking grape seed extract, base the dosage on your body weight. For the first week, take 1 mg per pound of body weight (round up or down to the nearest 50 pounds), in divided doses with meals. After the first week, continue with a diabetic retinopathy treatment maintenance dose of half this amount. For example, if you weigh 210 pounds, take 200 mg a day for the first week, and then continue on 100 mg a day. Don't Forget Your Multivitamin

Both L-carnosine and grape seed extract work best as diabetic retinopathy treatments in combination with a good multivitamin.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Step 3: Take Targeted Supplements

Deficiencies of vitamins A, C and E increase risk of PAD, and a low blood level of vitamin D was shown to raise risk by 80 percent. That’s why everyone, regardless of health status, should take an antioxidant-rich multivitamin and mineral supplement every day.

There are also several other supplements that target the underlying issues associated with PAD. The ones I recommend to my patients include:

Ginkgo biloba, an herb with mild blood-thinning effects that is a popular PAD therapy in Europe. In a recent German study, researchers gave patients with moderate PAD and intermittent claudication 40 mg ginkgo supplements three times a day for 24 weeks, and their walking performance significantly increased. I recommend taking 120 mg of ginkgo per day, in divided doses. Caution: Do not take ginkgo if you are on Coumadin (warfarin).

Propionyl-L-carnitine, an amino acid. In a year-long clinical trial, this supplement improved walking distance in patients with relatively severe PAD by 44 percent compared to placebo. I suggest taking 2,000 mg of propionyl-L-carnitine daily, in divided doses. Inositol hexaniacinate, a form of vitamin B3 and no-flush cousin of niacin, has also been shown to extend the distance PAD sufferers can walk prior to the onset of debilitating pain. I recommend taking 4,000 mg of inositol hexaniacinate per day, in divided doses.

I suggest trying these one at a time and giving each a two- or three-month trial until you find what works for you. Other supplements you may want to consider are:

A special seaweed extract (Seanol) and nattokinase (an enzyme present in the Japanese fermented food natto), both of which help normalize fibrinogen and other clotting factors in the blood. This is important because the poor blood flow to the extremities associated with PAD increases the risk of blood clots, which can lodge in narrowed arteries and cause serious complications, including death. These supplements also improve overall circulation. Use as directed. Caution: Do not take nattokinase if you are on Coumadin (warfarin).

Vitamin K2 is active in the bones and soft tissues, escorting calcium into the bones where it belongs and out of the arteries and other soft tissues. When you have deficiencies in vitamin K2, calcium can build up in and contribute to hardening of the arteries. Dutch researchers have discovered very strong links between vitamin K intake, arterial calcification and cardiovascular death. I recommend taking 100–150 mg of vitamin K2 (the MK-7 form) daily. Caution: Do not take vitamin K if you are on Coumadin (warfarin). Fish oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-platelet and cardio-protective effects, which is why I recommend taking 2–5 g of a high-quality product daily.

Periodontal disease These other therapies can help keep your gums healthy, prevent periodontal disease, and even treat it:

Oral Guard *Spry Mints

Brush and floss every day, and see your dentist regularly for cleanings. In addition, I recommend using an electric toothbrush like the Sonicare. The bristles of this toothbrush vibrate at about 500 strokes per second. This not only cleans the teeth but transmits acoustic energy that cleans and removes plaque between the teeth and below the gum line, the area normally reached only by flossing. Clean your tongue. The protective mucous coating on your tongue makes it an excellent hideout for bacteria. You can brush your tongue along with your teeth, or borrow a tool from Ayurvedic medicine and scrape your tongue once a day. Curved thin metal strips designed for this purpose not only remove plaque-forming bacteria, but are also one of the most effective breath fresheners around. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). This nutrient has been shown to reduce inflammation and other signs of gum disease. I recommend 100 mg of CoQ10 once or twice a day. Vitamin C. This do-it-all nutrient also plays a key role in preventing gum disease, as it helps maintain the integrity of the supporting structures of the oral tissues. Take 2,500 mg of vitamin C daily. Zinc and vitamin A. Deficiencies in both of these nutrients are common in people with periodontal disease. Zinc, in particular, stabilizes cellular membranes, inhibits plaque growth and hastens wound healing. Take 30 mg per day, along with 5,000 IU of vitamin A. Xylitol. This natural sweetener that prevents tooth decay and reduces periodontal disease. Xylitol looks like sugar and tastes like sugar, but unlike sugar, it is slowly and only partially absorbed by the body–making it an excellent sweetener for people with diabetes. Xylitol also raises the pH level of the mouth, making it less hospitable to the bacteria Streptococcus mutans, which produce acids that eat through the enamel of teeth and cause decay. Stop smoking. If you have diabetes, you are at higher risk of developing it—and if you smoke, you are at even higher risk. Statistics show that people with diabetes who smoke and are 45 years or older are 20 times more likely to develop severe gum disease than people who don’t have these risk factors. If you smoke, take whatever steps necessary to quit now!

Prostate Support

Pomegranate Complete * Premium Ground Flaxseed * Mega Lycopene

Adding a few foods to your diet can really make a difference in stopping prostate cancer. For example, the substance lycopene, found primarily in cooked tomatoes (tomato paste), watermelons, and pink grapefruit, has been shown to reduce PSA levels and slow the growth of prostate cancer. Two other foods I recommend are flaxseed and pomegranate juice. Flaxseed. Research indicates that flaxseed can be instrumental in reversing precancer of the prostate gland. In a study at Duke University Medical Center, researchers placed 15 men with suspected early-stage prostate cancer on a low-fat diet that included 30 grams of flaxseed a day. All of the men were scheduled to undergo repeat prostate biopsy. At the six month point, PSA levels completely normalized in two of the men, and no biopsy was deemed necessary. The other 13 men also saw significant decreases in their PSA levels—and only one was suspected of having cancer following his biopsy.

Amino acid trio brings prostate relief: Glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid ease prostate symptoms

In 1958, researchers published a paper in which they reported that a combination of three amino acids — glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid — reduced or completely eliminated symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Research on this natural trio has found that it can relieve getting up at night to urinate by 95%, easing both frequency and discomfort by more than 70%. Even better, while using amino acid capsules with glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid, 93% of men saw the size of their enlarged prostates decrease, according to a study.

Like I said, you may never hear about this amazing amino acid trio from the mainstream, but it’s readily available to patients at my Tahoma Clinic Dispensary.

Blood Pressure

Carditone 60 caplets* Olive Leaf Extract

Improve Blood Flow By Dr. David Williams

Supplements to Improve Blood Flow One particular supplement that will improve blood flow during exercise is L-arginine. This amino acid gets broken down by the body and releases nitric oxide (NO) —which causes blood vessels to dilate, or open, increasing blood flow and helping lower pulse pressure. You can lower your pulse pressure and risk of dying from heart attack by taking one gram of L-arginine prior to exercising. (As you continue exercising you can gradually increase the L-arginine by one gram each week until you’re taking 4 grams each day.) Niacin is another nutrient that is very inexpensive but effective at increasing circulation. It’s so effective that many people immediately notice a “flushing” sensation and are hesitant to use it. While the flushing might be a little unnerving initially, it is temporary (10 to 20 minutes). It usually subsides with continued use, and it isn’t harmful. (The effect can also be lessened by taking it with food.) Starting with 50 to 100 mg of niacin will provide benefits for most people, but in severe circulation problems or deficiencies I would suggest working up to as much as a gram (1,000 mg) a day. Niacin is available at health food stores. If you’ve neglected your body, eaten poorly for years, and/ or currently have poor cardiovascular health, in addition to the above techniques it will more than likely take additional steps to return some degree of elasticity to your arteries and drop your pulse pressure—both of which can be done with two supplements, lecithin granules and nattokinase. Two tablespoons of lecithin granules a day can help lower the melting point of cholesterol in your arteries and start the process of breaking down arterial plaques that interfere with blood vessel expansion. Lecithin granules (and niacin) happen to be one of the least expensive and underutilized medical miracles on the market. Additionally, nattokinase (the soy-based enzyme from Japan that helps dissolve fibrin deposits) has extensive research to support its use to help mitigate (and even prevent) heart attack damage.

Arginine: For Muscles, Memory, Sex, and More What Does Arginine Do?

One of arginine’s key functions in the body is to convert into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps blood vessels relax and expand, which is important for regulating blood flow.

Because of this function, doctors often recommend arginine supplements to help treat heart and blood vessel conditions. These conditions include congestive heart failure, chest pain, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, erectile dysfunction, clogged arteries, and vascular headaches.

L-Arginine * L-Citrulline * GPLC Glycocarn * Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate * Acetyl-L Carnitine

What does L-Citrulline and L-Arginine do? Together they help:

Support cardiovascular health by boosting nitric oxide production and helping blood flow more easily throughout the body, Support healthy blood pressure and boost the immune system, Detoxify the liver and eliminate ammonia from the body, Improve sexual stamina and enhance recovery from an intense workout

Who might benefit from taking a supplement containing both citrulline and arginine?

Anyone who wants to support healthy blood pressure, Individuals who want to avoid angina (chest pain), Individuals who want to avoid leg pain due to poor blood circulation Anyone who wants protection from heart attack and stroke, Men suffering from erectile dysfunction, Athletes who want a faster recovery

Will citrulline and arginine help my sex life?

The answer is yes. Arginine has been well studied for its ability to enhance sexual satisfaction. Both men and women report longer and more intense orgasms when their intake of arginine increases. Additionally, arginine is often used by men to achieve long lasting and harder erections. Since citrulline is a precursor for arginine and arginine is a precursor to nitric oxide, you can combine the two for enhanced sexual pleasure and vascular health.

Taking two forms of carnitine, propionyl-L-carnitine, 2,000 mg/day, and acetyl-L-carnitine, 2,000 mg/day, improved erectile function, propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine can help men with sexual dysfunction

Carnitine supplements may enhance erections as effectively as testosterone, according to an Italian study. Taking two forms of carnitine, propionyl-L-carnitine, 2,000 mg/day, and acetyl-L-carnitine, 2,000 mg/day, improved erectile function, modestly exceeding the benefit seen with oral testosterone.

why not try vitamin B6, folate, and vitamin B12 and see if it helps with your erectile dysfunction?

For the best chance of success, take 100 milligrams daily of the pyridoxal-5-phosphate form of vitamin B6, 3,000 micrograms daily of methylfolate, and 3,000 micrograms daily of the methylcobalamin form of vitamin B12. As these are B-vitamins, it’s best to take part in the morning, and part in the evening.

COPD is the third leading cause of death in the United States. More than 11 million people have been diagnosed with COPD, but an estimated 24 million may have the disease without even knowing it. COPD causes serious long-term disability and early death. At this time there is no cure, and the number of people dying from COPD is growing.

This Potent Herb Heals COPD, Adrenal Fatigue, Cancer, Immune Dysfunction and More Cordyceps

Cordyceps is viewed as a significant lung tonic in Chinese herbalism. Cordyceps unwinds and open up the aviation routes. This clarifies why it has been utilized generally to treat respiratory ailments, for example, pneumonia, ceaseless bronchitis, aspiratory emphysema, and tuberculosis.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) Helps Alleviate COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine)

The amino acid N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant, and is also the precursor to the body’s most powerful endogenous antioxidant—glutathione. Glutathione is considered the “master antioxidant” because unlike all the other antioxidants it doesn’t need any other antioxidants to help it do its job.

NAC was first developed as a dietary supplement to help break up mucus in the lungs in conditions such as bronchitis. But current studies are showing that it is an effective tool for slowing down the progression of, and easing the symptoms of COPD—chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

What You Need to Know: N-A-C (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) Broad-Spectrum Benefits

Long relegated to infrequent use in unusual circumstances, the amino acid-derived compound N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) has drawn increased scientific attention.

NAC replenishes levels of the intracellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH), which is often deficient with advancing age and in chronic illness. NAC also regulates expression of scores of genes in the pathways that link oxidative stress to inflammation. These dual effects give NAC a unique role in the prevention and treatment of many common diseases, both acute and chronic. NAC can protect against avian influenza and more common seasonal flu symptoms. NAC reduces the frequency and duration of attacks of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and may slow the clinical course of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). NAC protects tissues from the effects of exercise-induced oxidative stress, adding value and safety to your workout. NAC improves insulin sensitivity in people with some of the most difficult-to-treat metabolic disorders. NAC blocks cancer development at virtually every step in the process, and through multiple mechanisms, making it an important cancer chemopreventive agent. NAC fights the stomach infection Helicobacter pylori on two fronts, inhibiting the organism’s growth while reducing production of inflammatory cytokines that can lead to gastritis and cancer. Though most individuals gain benefits from 600-1,800 mg/day, clinical studies have found that doses of up to 2,000 mg/day are safe and effective. A recent study demonstrated the safety of 2,800 mg/day for 3 months in patients with COPD.23

Normal blood oxygen levels are considered 95-100 percent. Between 90 and 95 percent, your blood oxygen level is considered low but it is not necessarily indicative of a health issue. If the level is below 90 percent, it is considered low resulting in hypoxemia. Most people with cancer will have low oxygen levels.

The link between oxygen and cancer is clear. In fact, an underlying cause of cancer is low cellular oxygenation levels.

In newly formed cells, low levels of oxygen damage respiration enzymes so that the cells cannot produce energy using oxygen. These cells can then turn cancerous.

YOU CAN TRACE VERY ILLNESS AND DISEASE TO A MINERAL DEFICIENCY

Studies By Dr Linus Pauling, twice noble prize winner, said "you can trace every sickness, every disease and every ailment to a mineral deficiency". Yet, all over the world, minerals are disappearing from agricultural soils at an alarming rate. In 1992, the official report of the Rio Earth Summit concluded "there is deep concern over continuing major declines in the mineral values in farm and range soils throughout the world". This statement was based on data showing that over the last 100 years, average mineral levels in agricultural soils had fallen worldwide - by 72% in Europe, 76% in Asia and 85% in North America. What has caused this staggering decline?

Most of the blame lies with artificial chemical fertilisers. We now know that plants absorb 70 to 80 different minerals from the soil, while the number returned to it by plants grown with commercial fertilisers can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Every crop that is cut or animal that is sent to market marks a further depletion in the mineral status of the soil on which it was raised.

The importance of mineral salts Calcium (Ca) Phosphorus (P) Magnesium (Mg) Potassium (K) Sodium (Na) Chlorine (Cl) Sulphur (S) Iron (Fe) Copper (Cu) Zinc (Zn) Molybdenum (Mo) Iodine (I) Fluorine (F) Selenium (Se) Cobalt (Co) Manganese (Mn)

Everyone knows that the human body is made up of 78% water by weight, and that water is hydrogen and oxygen gases. When nitrogen gas and carbon in the form of carbon dioxide and methane gases are added, the total gas in the body by weight becomes over 95%. Almost half of the remaining 5% that makes up the human body and controls all biological functions is the mineral calcium. No other mineral is capable of performing as many biological functions as is calcium. Calcium is involved in almost every biological function. This amazing mineral provides the electrical energy for the heart to beat and for all muscle movement. It is the calcium ion that is responsible for feeding every cell. It does this by latching on to seven nutrient molecules and one water molecule and pulls them through the nutrient channel. It then detaches its load and returns to repeat the process. Another important biological job for calcium is DNA replication, which is crucial for maintaining youth and a healthy body. DNA replication is the basis for all body repair and can only occur “on a substrate of calcium”. Thus, low calcium means low body repair and premature aging. As important as all these and hundreds of other biological functions of calcium are to human health, none is more important than the job of pH control. Calcium to acid, is like water to a fire. Calcium quickly destroys oxygen robbing acid in the body fluids. Thus, the more calcium, the more oxygen, and therefore, the less cancer and other degenerative disease.

Magnesium is also important, both for the proper function of calcium, and for the activity of vitamin D as it converts vitamin D into its active form. Magnesium also activates enzyme activity that helps your body use the vitamin D. In fact, all enzymes that metabolize vitamin D require magnesium to work. As with vitamin D and K2, magnesium deficiency is also common, and if you’re lacking in magnesium and take supplemental calcium, you may exacerbate the situation.

Magnesium is Essential for Diabetics

High levels of magnesium decrease insulin resistance in type 2 diabetics. People with diabetes waste more magnesium due to increased urination from elevated and fluctuating blood sugars and so need to constantly replenish their magnesium stores.

Most people and doctors do not know it but without insulin, magnesium does not get transported from our blood into our cells where it is most needed. When insulin becomes problematic, magnesium is excreted through our urine instead of getting into the cells meaning we waste our magnesium perpetuating and worsening the diabetic condition.

Low serum and intracellular magnesium concentrations lead to insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, and decreased insulin secretion thus magnesium supplementation improves insulin sensitivity thus lowering insulin resistance.

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can be produced in the body with mild sun exposure or consumed in food or supplements.

Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such as cancer, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, helping to:

Maintain the health of bones and teeth

Support the health of the immune system, brain and nervous system

Regulate insulin levels and aid diabetes management

Support lung function and cardiovascular health

Influence the expression of genes involved in cancer development.

In spite of the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin. This is because the body is capable of producing its own vitamin D through the action of sunlight on the skin, while vitamins are nutrients that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be acquired through the diet or supplements.

It is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows the body the ability to produce sufficient vitamin D, but vitamin D has a half-life of only two weeks, meaning that stores can run low, especially in winter. Recent studies have suggested that up to 50% of adults and children worldwide are vitamin D deficient.

What Sulfur Does

Sulfur is so important in maintaining good health and flexibility in the tendons, mussels, ligaments, skin and nerves and serves so many other vital functions in the body. Just to name a few:

Oxygenates the blood so that red blood cells can deliver more oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

Improves the lung and all cell permeability to increase lung capacity and increase oxygen intake to the body.

Helps neutralize allergenic reaction to pollen, different types of foods, animals and fat allergies.

Increases bile-function and has a cleansing effect in the digestive tract.

Protects against the harmful effects of toxins, radiation, and pollution.

the blood, resists bacteria and protects the protoplasm of the cells.

Helps to normalize, allergic reactions, stress, drug hypersensitivity, inflammation of mucous membranes, and inflammatory disorders including all forms of arthritis, muscle cramps, and infectious parasites of all kinds.

Is excellent in maintaining flexibility in arteries, improving oxygen flow and keeping the arteries clean and clear of arterial plaque from forming.

Sodium Chloride and Digestion

The main fluids in the body are sodium and chloride. Since HCL and sodium bicarbonate are made from sodium chloride, low salt diets and processed-demineralized table salts can drive the body into acidosis. Consuming a high mineral salt, like Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt, is very important. Without sodium chloride you cannot make HCL to break down minerals and digest proteins. Without minerals, the acids become trapped in the extracellular spaces causing inflammation and disease.

Hydrochloric acid (HCL) and sodium bicarbonate are made by the parietal cells in the stomach. The body takes sodium chloride (salt) in the stomach and breaks it down into HCL and sodium bicarbonate. HCL does its part to sterilize food, ionize minerals and convert pepsinogen into pepsin to break down proteins in the stomach. The sodium bicarbonate enters the blood stream to circulate through the body where it flushes the acids out of the connective tissues. Any extra sodium bicarbonate is collected by the kidneys, liver and pancreas. When there is not enough sodium bicarbonate in the body, there is not enough HCL in the body.

DISCOVERY BY DR. LYNDA FRASSETTO

In 1996 Dr. Lynda Frassetto at the University of California, San Francisco, discovered that as we age, starting around age 45, we lose the alkaline buffer ‘ bicarbonates – in our blood. By the age of 90, we lose 18% of bicarbonates in our blood.

Insufficient amount of bicarbonates in our blood reduces our capabilities to manage (neutralize and dump) the acid our body produces. This is the cause of aging. The age of 45 is the average age when human beings start to show symptoms of diabetes, cancer, vascular disease, hypertension, osteoporosis and many other adult degenerative diseases. And since we cannot manage the acid, we accumulate acidic wastes in our body. These wastes show up as cholesterol, fatty acid, uric acid, urate, sulfate, phosphate, kidney stones. Because of the relative bicarbonate deficiency, the stomach can no longer produce the required amount of stomach acid. This can spell disaster for your metabolism.

Why Stomach Acid is Good For You

Stomach acid or hydrochloric acid (HCl), is a very powerful digestive agent, and much more important than you realize.

HCl's important functions include:

Breaking down proteins into the essential amino acids and nutrients your body needs in order to stay healthy. Stimulating your pancreas and small intestines to produce the digestive enzymes and bile necessary to further breakdown the carbohydrates, proteins and fats you eat. Preventing disease by killing pathogenic bacteria and yeast normally present in food.

As you age, your stomach acid tends to decrease anyway. Add a poor diet of processed foods and you may find that you have both digestive and immune problems. Low Stomach Acid: A Vicious Cycle

There are two main consequences of low stomach acid:

You become protein malnourished. When your stomach acid is low, you are not able to digest protein. Improper digestion of protein creates toxins in your intestines that can set the stage for illness and disease. Improper digestion of protein also creates acidic blood, since protein is by nature acidic. You become mineral deficient. As your blood becomes more acidic, it will look for minerals from anywhere in your body, in order to get your blood to its more ideal alkaline state. Acidic blood robs your body of minerals, even taking minerals from your bones (which is important to know if you want to prevent osteoporosis).

Low stomach acid eventually creates a vicious cycle: low stomach acid = low minerals = acidic blood. This cycle continues because acidic blood further creates low minerals and low stomach acid.

Once this vicious cycle has started, there is a cascade of consequences:

You could eat plenty of protein and still be protein malnourished. This raises cortisol levels (stress or death hormone), thereby raising your blood glucose (blood sugar levels). Elevated cortisol adversely affects your behavior and temperment. Eventually, your adrenals become depleted (adrenal fatigue), and DHEA, the youth hormone, is suppressed, leading to premature aging.

Low DHEA and high cortisol affect your brain and behavior, but that's not all. The vicious cycle of low stomach acid affects your inner ecosystem too. Low stomach acid can lead to more bad guys (pathogenic bacteria, candida and viruses) than good guys (healthy microflora), thus lowering your immunity. Symptoms of Low Stomach Acid

Here are some of the common symptoms and disorders caused by low stomach acid:1,3

Bloating, belching, and flatulence immediately after meals Heartburn (often thought to be caused by too much stomach acid) Indigestion, diarrhea, or constipation Undigested food in stools Acne Rectal itching Chronic Candida Hair loss in women Multiple food allergies Iron deficiency Weak, peeling, or cracked fingernails Chronic fatigue Adrenal fatigue Dry skin Various autoimmune diseases

5 Steps to Reverse Low Stomach Acid

Digestive Health

Garden of Life Primal Defense * Digestive Enzymes* Proteolytic Enzymes* Betaine HCl Pepsin & Gentian Bitters* Celtic Sea Salt * Mt. Capra Products CapraCleanse * Pure Baking Soda

1. Ingest black pepper whenever you eat protein.

Traditional medicine has long considered black pepper as an aid to digestion. Your stomach reacts to the spice by secreting more hydrochloric acid. As a result any food that came along with the black pepper is more thoroughly broken down.

2. Ingest Apple Cider Vinegar

The No. 2 thing you can do to start to balance this pH in your stomach is use apple cider vinegar right before your meals. I would take one tablespoon and just a very small amount of water. Apple cider vinegar is a great natural remedy because apple cider vinegar has a very low pH in balance with your stomach.

3. Take Digestive Enzymes

The No. 3 step you want to start taking to improve your stomach acid are digestive enzymes. I would get a good digestive enzyme blend and take one to two caps right before your meal. You could even take that with the apple cider vinegar.

Digestive enzymes will help you fully break down those nutrients you ingest. If your stomach acid is too high, that will actually not allow you to break down the food you’re eating, so you must get plenty of enzymes. That’s not something you should have to take the rest of your life, but it is something you should take for a time until your stomach acid balances out.

4. Add HCL with Pepsin to Your Diet

The No. 4 thing you may consider if you have low stomach acid is HCL with pepsin — hydrochloric acid with pepsin. Now, hydrochloric acid is naturally created in your stomach. That is really the main thing that creates that very acidic environment to break down food. But if you’re deficient in hydrochloric acid, and stomach acid itself, that’s not going to allow you to fully digest and break down things like protein, which, over time, can also cause a condition called leaky gut.

So you want to do everything you can to heal and repair your gut. HCL with pepsin is a great thing you can start taking on a regular basis to really help heal your GI tract, help fight things like acid reflux and improve low stomach acid. It’s also one of the best leaky gut supplements around.

Now, the trick with HCL is you typically want to take that while you’re under the care of a physician or start off with one capsule. By the way, you only take HCL with pepsin if you’re taking protein during a meal. If you’re not taking protein in a meal, you don’t want to use it. If you’re getting quite a bit of protein foods in a meal — like chicken or beef — you want to take HCL.

When you get warmness in your stomach, that means you’re taking enough. You need to back it down. Some people need one capsule; other people may need to take up to nine capsules of HCL with pepsin.

5. Eat Manuka Honey

The fourth thing you can do to improve low stomach acid is use Manuka honey. Manuka honey is a specific type of honey out of New Zealand, and this honey has antimicrobial properties. People can develop things like SIBO symptoms — that’s small intestinal bacterial overgrowth — and the wrong type of bacteria in the stomach when they have low stomach acid. Manuka honey can help naturally treat conditions like SIBO.

Just take a teaspoon a day or a teaspoon twice a day. It can actually help in healing stomach ulcer symptoms, and it’s also great for low stomach acid.

6. Chew Your Food Thoroughly and Eat Smaller Meals

We already know that sodium bicarbonate(Baking Soda) dramatically slows the progress of chronic kidney disease and it’s now been used to help with everything from sunburn, ulcer pain, kidney disease, diabetes, and cancer. tool in working with diabetic and metabolic syndromes. Obviously it does not take the place of an alkaline diet and water but bicarbonate is a front line medicine that doctors and patients can employ orally and transdermally in baths.

Taking Minerals

So now we have the possibility that calcium can actually protect your heart. And the key to that protection can be found in that earlier longevity study that added vitamin D to calcium. But adding D is just the start.

Dietary sources of calcium also deliver magnesium. That’s significant because magnesium helps your body absorb calcium. So now you’ve got calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D all working together to improve bone health. What else? You’ll also need a generous helping of vitamin K2, which is essential for bones and also helps your body utilize vitamin D.

Now you’re talkin’! You’ll have the sturdiest skeleton on the block with the Fantastic Four working for you around the clock. And this vitamin/mineral combo delivers dozens of other benefits from cancer prevention to protection for your heart, your brain, and more.

That’s got “longevity” written all over it.

If you opt for a supplement, be sure to take vitamin D3—not synthetic D2—and take vitamin K2 and magnesium in conjunction with it. Vitamin D is fat-soluble, so taking some form of healthy fat with it will also help optimize absorption. The biological role of vitamin K2 is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, and without sufficient amounts, calcium may build up in areas such as your arteries and soft tissues. This can cause calcification that can lead to hardening of your arteries—a side effect previously thought to be caused by vitamin D toxicity. We now know that inappropriate calcification is actually due more to lack of K2 than simply too much vitamin D.

So, the healing process, no matter what is wrong with you, begins with RE-MINERALIZATION. The only way you can replace these minerals is by consuming fruits and vegetables. You can take mineral supplements but these only work temporarily. These type of minerals are basically ground up rocks and cannot be incorporated into the body cells. Plants can digest rocks, people can't. We have to eat our fruits and vegetables.Garden of Life Raw and OrganicHelloFresh delivers great recipes and fresh ingredients to your home each week.

One of the major benefits of getting your nutrients from a varied whole food diet is that you're far less likely to end up with too much of one nutrient at the expense of others. Foods in general contain all the cofactors and needed co-nutrients in the proper amounts for optimal health, which takes out the guess work. When you're using supplements, you need to become a bit more savvy about how nutrients influence and synergistically affect each other.

For example, it's important to maintain the proper balance between magnesium, calcium, vitamin K2, and vitamin D. Lack of balance between these nutrients is why calcium supplements have become associated with increased risk of heart attacks and stroke, and why some people experience vitamin D toxicity.

Part of the explanation for these adverse side effects is that vitamin K2 keeps calcium in its appropriate place. If you're K2 deficient, added calcium can cause more problems than it solves, by accumulating in the wrong places. Similarly, if you opt for oral vitamin D, you need to also consume it in your food or take supplemental vitamin K2. Taking mega doses of vitamin D supplements without sufficient amounts of K2 can lead to vitamin D toxicity symptoms, which includes inappropriate calcification.

So, all in all, anytime you're taking any of the following: magnesium, calcium, vitamin D3 or vitamin K2, you need to take all the others into consideration as well, since these all work synergistically with each other. These are good products that will help replace the minerals in your body.

Barlean's Organic Forti-Flax Premium Ground Flaxseed 28 oz - Vegan

No one wants to talk about constipation. But it’s a chronic problem that undermines the health of millions of Americans. Are you one of them?

Given that 63 million Americans have sluggish bowels, and that constipation can undermine our energy, digestion and detoxification, that it can fuel inflammation and create the breeding grounds for chronic disease, it’s definitely time to throw open the bathroom door and shed some much-needed light on the condition.

Ground flax seeds – hands down, this author finds that the best way to ensure sufficient fiber and to keep things moving at a gentle pace is to take a daily supplement of 2-3 Tbsp. of ground flax seeds mixed with 1 Cup of fluid (e.g. milk or “yogurt milk”). Ground flax seeds also provide much needed omega-3, and its superlatively high lignan (phytoestrogen) content very effectively controls hormonal balance (especially during menopause).

Scientists stunned as seed shrinks breast tumors in weeks

Barlean's Organic Forti-Flax Premium Ground Flaxseed 28 oz - Vegan

If you’re engaged in a fight against breast cancer — or know someone who is — I hope you will take the opportunity to read and forward today’s e-Tips. Because researchers from Germany may have uncovered a powerful breakthrough that could help turn the tide on breast cancer forever.

In fact, the new study shows that a simple seed that’s so widely available you can begin using it TODAY may shrink tumors, stopping them from spreading…in effect making your breast cancer much less aggressive. Even more incredible, it could start working these near miracles in mere weeks!

Flaxseed, also known as linseed, is an ideal source of dietary fiber, omega 3 fat, and lignan. Actually, it is the richest source of lignan on earth. It has lignan levels that are 100-800 times higher than any other plant source. Lignan has been shown in many studies to reduce the size of cancerous tumors in rats and mice, and has been used with success in treating both breast and prostate cancer in humans.

That means flaxseeds are more potent than virtually any other plant source when preventing and fighting cancer.

.

The research supports the idea that flaxseed, particularly flaxseed with high quantities of lignan is beneficial for not only preventing cancer, but treating it when it occurs.

One important thing to note is to make sure that you get flaxseed with high properties of lignan. Sometimes when flaxseed oil is pressed, the lignan is removed, so be careful of this when adding flaxseed to your diet.

So what can you do to get more flaxseed in your diet?

There are two ways to ingest it—whole or ground.

The Mayo Clinic recommends ground over whole flaxseed because it is easier for your body to digest. Whole flaxseed can pass through the intestines undigested, which means that your body will not get all of the benefits from eating it.

Still, some flaxseed is clearly better than no flaxseed in your diet, so as long as you make sure the flaxseed you are taking has lignan in it.

Ground flaxseed is easy to put into foods…you can add it to smoothies, condiments, bake it into cookies and breads…even putit into your breakfast cereal.

You can sprinkle whole flaxseed on top of soups, salads, and yogurt for added crunchiness and a nutty taste.

Flaxseed oil can also be mixed with cottage cheese, and this is the foundation of the Budwig Diet, one of the most popular anti-cancer diets on the planet. The mixing of the oil and cottage cheese allows for the chemical reaction to take place between the sulfur protein in the cottage cheese and the oil, which makes the oil water soluble for easy absorbsion into your cells.

The Proven Cure and Prevention for Cancer the Medical Establishment Doesn't Want You to Know (Part II)

There are tons of ways to get creative about how you get flaxseed into your diet…and the best part is, you can get flaxseed in bulk (whole or ground) in many grocery and health food stores.

The research shows it is well worth the effort to get more of this super seed into your diet…don’t miss out on one of nature’s most powerful cancer beaters!

Flaxseed could be a game-changer, friend. It could have the power to permanently alter the way we treat breast cancer, and may help women find relief from the twin heartbreaks of radiation and surgery. The best part is that you can find flaxseed in just about any health food store and add it to your own diet for just pennies a day.

Could you really beat breast cancer with just one flaxseed muffin a day? Research says it may be worth a try. Have a chat with your doctor about whether it makes sense to start incorporating flaxseed into your cancer-treatment plan.

Iodine a promising breast cancer treatment

Rub away cancer?

Q: A friend of mine said she read a few years ago in your newsletter that iodine can be used to treat breast cancer. How is it administered?

Dr. Wright: Iodine kills breast cancer cells without killing off normal cells in the process. In other words, it’s ideal for both the treatment and prevention of breast cancer.

A suggestion for you and your doctor to consider: Put the treatment right onto the problem! Mix a solution of 50 percent iodine/50 percent DMSO and rub it directly onto your breast as near as possible to where the cancer is (or used to be). The DMSO will ensure penetration deep into the tissue. A 70-percent DMSO solution is widely available, and iodine is available by prescription as Lugol’s Iodine and in natural food stores and the Tahoma Clinic Dispensary as Triodide (from Scientific Botanicals). If you’re worried about the breast cancer spreading, you can also rub the mixture into the area under the arms that is rich in lymph glands (nodes) where breast cancer spreads first.

But please don’t do any of the above without consulting a physician skilled and knowledgeable in the use of high-dose iodine!

You should also be sure that your physician monitors your thyroid function and gives you other nutrient suggestions while you use iodine as an adjunct to your regular breast cancer treatment.
