Get your type 2 diabetes under control withBerberine … without a single drug! Lower your blood sugar, A1c, and cholesterol with this clinical breakthrough phytonutrient

Best known for its natural antibiotic activity, berberine deals a serious blow to common infectious organisms— organisms like “staph,” “strep,” Chlamydia, diphtheria, salmonella, cholera, diplococcus pneumoniae, pseudomonas, gonorrhea, candida, cancer, trichomonas, and many others. Berberine is a component (for the technically inclined, a “plant alkaloid”) of the commonly used herbs goldenseal and Oregon grape, and of several other less well-known botanicals. A 0.2 percent solution of berberine has been found effective against trachoma—in “third world” countries, a major infectious cause of visual impairment and blindness, as well as many other types of conjunctivitis.

It’s less well known that berberine has been found more effective than aspirin in relieving fever in experimental animals, and is able to stimulate some parts of the immune system. It’s also a stimulant for bile secretion.

And it’s not at all well known that research published in well-known, respected, “peer-reviewed” medical journals in 2008 found that berberine is just as effective— and of course much safer—than metformin, the formerly patent medicine most commonly now prescribed to help re-regulate blood sugar in type 2 diabetes!

The berberine solution had the same effect on the cells as insulin.

Just like insulin, it activated the same biochemical pathway (protein kinase phosphorylation activation of GLUT-4) that signals cells to take up more sugar. And just like insulin, the greater the amount of berberine they exposed the cells to, the more sugar they took up. All this happened in the absence of any insulin! Now I understand why Berberine is so effectve in treating type 2 diabetes.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that my body was acidic and I was suffering from insulin resistance, atherosclerosis and cancer. I was always under the impression that type 2 diabetes was all about high blood sugar. I was really shocked to find out that type 2 diabetes is not just about high blood sugar. Diabetes is actually a part of a group of metabolic disorders often refereed to as the metabolic syndrome. These metabolic abnormalities include, acidosis, insulin resistance, atherosclerosis, Cancer, as well as high blood sugar. The treatment for these abnormalities must be wholistic. You just can't treat the high blood sugar and ignore all the others. That is just not going to work. But, that is exactly what main stream doctors do. They put you on medications to lower your high blood sugar and ignore all the other problems. That's why people with diabetes have such a high rate of cancer, heart attack and strokes, blindness, limb amputations and the list goes an and on. I had enough of that crap. That's why I decided to do my own research and find me some doctors that practice holistic medicine. These are my choices.

Nature combines enzymes, vitamins and compounds to work together to aid in their absorption - but synthetic, man-made supplements are not able to simulate nature's perfect chemistry, and much of what is taken is unusable and subsequently eliminated by your body.

We are trying to survive on artificial foods, processed chemicals, refined foods and disease-causing toxins - Even the 'healthy' vegetables we eat are often grown in nutrient-depleted or chemically fertilized soils, and then we go and destroy their beneficial enzymes and vitamins when we cook them!

Magnesium, calcium, vitamin D plays a key role in preventing insulin dysregulation and type 2 diabetes, according to several recent studies—yet 80 percent of Americans are likely magnesium deficient.

One of the most significant benefits of coral minerals is the alkalizing effect they have on the human body. Coral has the ability to balance pH levels because its natural pH is 10 to 11 (basic). An acidic pH level is anything below 7, and much research indicates that a long list of health conditions can result from increased acidity in the body. Conditions like arthritis, heart disease, and even diabetes have been clinically linked to imbalanced pH levels. Because today’s typical diet often contains acid-forming foods, coral minerals are the perfect way to offset those high pH levels.

Hypochlorhydria - lack of stomach acid - can cause lots of problems that you may not even realize.

Hypochlorhydria arises when the stomach is unable to produce hydrochloric acid. It is a greatly overlooked cause of problems that can have you pushing up daisies before you are ready.

As we age, our ability to produce stomach acid declines, but some people are simply not very good at producing stomach acid, sometimes because of pathology in the stomach (such as an allergic gastritis secondary to food intolerance), but sometimes for reasons unknown.

The Root Of The Problem?

In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food. When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0. This is strong enough of an acid that if it were to be dropped on a piece of wood, it would burn a hole through the wood. The inner lining of the stomach is protected from its own acid by a thick layer of mucous and epithelial cells that produce a bicarbonate solution (an alkaloid) to neutralize the acid.

Stomach acid has several important roles including:

Breakdown of proteins into a form that they can be digested (called proteolysis). Activation of the enzyme pepsin, which is responsible for protein digestion. Inhibiting the growth of microorganisms that enter the body through food to prevent infection. Signaling when the food (referred to as chyme) is ready to leave the stomach and move into the small intestine for continued digestion.

When the digestive system is functioning normally, food travels down the esophagus to the stomach. The stomach works to ensure adequate mechanical digestion (by churning of the stomach) and production of stomach acid until the chyme is brought to the proper pH level. At that point, the valve at the lower end of the stomach, the pyloric sphincter, is triggered to open and release the chyme into the small intestine. The pH level of the chyme entering the small intestine triggers the release of pancreatic enzymes (to continue with the digestive process) and sodium bicarbonate (to neutralize the chyme to prevent burning.

What happens when stomach acid is too low

When stomach acid production is low, dysfunction throughout the digestive system can occur, leading to numerous symptoms and disease processes. The body’s preference is to keep the chyme in the stomach until it reaches the proper pH level. Therefore, when stomach acid production is low, the chyme sits in the stomach for a longer period of time without the nutrients being broken down properly. At the same time, the low stomach acid promotes an environment that is more friendly to the growth of microorganisms, which are fed by the carbohydrates that become fermented from sitting in the stomach for too long. Eventually, excessive pressure from the bacterial overgrowth and maldigested food results.

The stomach has two valves, the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) (at the top of the stomach) and the pyloric sphincter (at the bottom of the stomach). While the pyloric sphincter is a one way valve, the LES is designed to open both ways. When excessive pressure builds up in the stomach, but the pH is still not at an optimal range to allow opening of the pyloric sphincter, the body identifies only one option to release the pressure: Open up the LES. Opening of the LES allows release of the pressure into the esophagus and that is what commonly leads to the symptoms of heartburn and acid reflux. Even if your stomach isn’t producing enough acid, any amount of acid going into the esophagus will result in uncomfortable symptoms because the esophagus is not designed to handle stomach acid. Frequent opening of the LES toward the esophagus will contribute to a weakened valve that compounds the problem.

Low stomach acid also contributes to digestive problems downstream from the stomach in the small intestine. If the stomach is not able to produce enough acid to bring the pH level of the chyme to an optimal range, after a while, the stomach will be forced to move it through the pyloric sphincter into the small intestine. Because it is not at the proper pH, the chyme does not trigger the release of sodium bicarbonate, which can result in duodenal ulcers. It is this reduction of bicarbonates in the blood that affects blood flow and makes it difficult to manage the continuous out pour of acid, making it difficult to eliminate acid waste from the body and thereby developing many acid-induced degenerative diseases such as blood clots, acid reflux, heart disease, osteoporosis, gout, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, cancer, strokes, etc. Alzheimer’s disease is nothing but a slow acidification of the brain. All these diseases are caused by systemic acidosis, which means insufficient bicarbonates in the blood. The higher pH of the chyme also does not trigger the release of pancreatic enzymes. The small intestine is not able to break down the chyme properly and the large, undigested particles of food can begin to have a negative impact on the lining of the small intestine. The lining becomes more permeable and allows the undigested food particles to enter the bloodstream where your body's immune system recognizes them as foreign invaders. This triggers a systemic immune response that can lead to food sensitivities, inflammation, and autoimmune disease. This phenomenon is known as leaky gut syndrome.

Some undigested food particles may continue into the large intestine. This malabsorbed food can lead to a disruption of the normal gut flora The large intestine may become inflamed and subject to a variety of conditions, such as constipation, diarrhea, or irritable bowel syndrome. The disruption of the normal gut flora also impacts your overall immune system and can lead to autoimmune conditions. Prevalence and symptoms of low stomach acid

Low stomach acid is a common problem in developed nations. According to Jonathon Wright, MD (author of “Why Stomach Acid is Good for You“), approximately 90% of Americans produce too little stomach acid. He arrived at this conclusion after measuring the stomach pH of thousands of patients in his clinic. (While conventional medical doctors sometimes measure esophageal pH levels in particularly difficult cases of acid reflux, they never measure stomach pH levels. As mentioned above, any amount of acid in the esophagus is abnormal and will cause symptoms.)

Because low stomach acid has such a profound impact on overall health, symptoms may affect a variety of body systems and result in conditions that include:

Heartburn, GERD, Indigestion and bloating Burping, or gas after meals, Excessive fullness or discomfort after meals, Constipation and/or diarrhea, Chronic intestinal infections, Undigested food in stools Food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities, Acne, Chronic fatigue, Mineral and nutrient deficiencies, (including iron and/or vitamin B12 deficiency), Dry skin or hair Weak, or cracked nails, Asthma, Depression, Osteoporosis Any autoimmune disease diagnosis

Hopefully, by now, it should be clear that covering up symptoms of heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux by lowering stomach acid production even more through the use of acid-suppressing drugs, is not an effective, safe, or smart way to address the root cause of low stomach acid. How the stomach produces hydrochloric acid is not well known to medical doctors, except pathologists.

Natural Solutions: If you are 40 years of age, you won't be able to reverse some of the chronic problems that have been caused by some of these metabolic conditions. The best you can do is learn how to manage them. I believe changing your diet is a good place to start. If you have already been diagnosed with cancer, then you really must take a look at Dr. Budwig cancer diet.

How To Predict Type 2 Diabetes 20 Years In Advance

You don't have to wait until you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes to find out if you have it or not. All you have to do is monitor your insulin levels on a regular basis. As long as your insulin levels are normal, then you should not have to worry about type 2 diabetes. High insulin levels will always precede type 2 diabetes. Most doctors are not going to check your insulin levels, so you are going to have to be proactive about it and demand that your doctor check your insulin levels. When your fasting insulin level is over 5 µIU/mL, this indicates a metabolic problem such as pre-diabetes that will eventually lead to type 2 diabetes.

If you and your physician are interested in the insulin test, here it is Fasting Glucose and Insulin Blood Test

Diabetes And Cancer

Consuming a Western diet high in sugars and carbohydrates produces up to a 41% increase in the risk of developing the most common kind of breast cancer. Stomach, prostate, liver, and reproductive cancers are also at an increased risk. Natural supplements may help reduce blood insulin levels, especially fish oil, green tea extracts, and resveratrol. Metformin, of course, is also strongly associated with lowering insulin levels, thereby reducing these cancer risks.

Dr. Johanna Budwig Cancer Diet

♦ Dr. Johanna Budwig, scientist and renowned expert and authority on polyunsaturated fats found that high-dose flaxseed combined with cottage cheese could cure major health problems, including cancer (90% cure rate).

- The method behind the madness - the cottage cheese blended properly with the fresh, organic flax seed oil (rich in omega-3) made the omega-3 much more bioavailable to the body’s cells and by-passed the liver, whose function is often impaired in those who are sick; combined with a specific diet and time spent in the sun this is an extremely powerful therapy, which the wise should not ignore.

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

Sodium Bicarbonate (NaHCO3) commonly called baking soda is a natural substance used in the human body within the bloodstream to regulate pH as a counterbalance to acid build up, which is critical to life. It affects the pH of cells and tissues, balances cell voltage, and increases CO2 which helps with oxygenation. Sodium Bicarbonate is a powerful medical tool that everyone would benefit by knowing more about.

Sodium Bicarbonate can be used as a first line of defense for a vast range of sickness including, cancer, flu, diabetes, kidney disease and even the common cold. Sodium Bicarbonate can be used in many forms whether transdermally in a bath, orally or nebulised for lung conditions. It is so powerful in it's ability to detox that it can even be used against radiation exposure.

Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) immediately reacts when it mixes with stomach acid. NaHCO(3) + HCl —> NaCl + H(2)0 + CO(2). That is: Sodium bicarbonate + stomach acid yields salt + water + carbon dioxide.

When we talk about bicarbonate we are talking about CO2, because that is what sodium bicarbonate turns to when it reaches the stomach causing an increase in stomach acid production as well as an increase in bicarbonates in the blood. The bicarbonate ion is HCO3-. Bicarbonate is an important buffer found in blood. Carbon dioxide is present in the blood in a number of forms such as bicarbonate, dissolved carbon dioxide and carbonic acid, of which 90% is bicarbonate or HCO3.

If there is one thing you could do every day that would dramatically fight disease and increase your energy, consuming lemon juice combined with baking soda would be on the top of the list. Lemon in addition to being an effective internal cleanser and especially when combined with baking soda has also shown to contain anti-carcinogenic properties as it contains limonoides, which are phytochemicals found in a number of citrus fruits. Apparently the limonoides help strip off the protective layer coating the cancer cells. Lemon also has been shown to have strong anti-microbial effects, which has been tested in research exploring the idea that cancer is very much like a fungus within the body. When treating cancer as a fungus, various methods can be used and some have found that lemon and bicarbonate can help fight the fungus causing various types of cancer.” Your stomach reacts to baking soda and lemon juice by secreting more hydrochloric acid and when the body makes more hydochloric acids, it also makes more more sodium bicarbonate that goes into the blood stream neutralizing the acid build up in tissues and fluids.

Steps to Reverse Low Stomach Acid By Dr. Axe

Drink Raw Cabbage Juice. It stimulate the stomach to make hydrochloric acid.

Cabbage Has Cancer-Preventing Properties. Cabbage contains powerful antioxidants like vitamins A and C and phytonutrients such as thiocyanates, lutein, zeaxanthin, isothiocyanates and sulforaphane, which stimulate detoxifying enzymes and may protect against breast, colon and prostate cancers.

Fermented cabbage juice is loaded with several different beneficial components:

It contains numerous sulfur-based compounds which are ideal for killing all types of harmful viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens in the stomach and intestinal tract. The juice is loaded with billions and billions of lactic acid-producing bacteria that reesta-blish the friendly bacterial flora in the lower bowel.

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.

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

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.

6. Chew Your Food Thoroughly and Eat Smaller Meals

My last step here is a lifestyle tip. Those four natural remedies will help, but there are a few other things you want to do to help heal your low stomach acid.

One of those things is to make sure you chew your food. So often we’re in a race through life, and we don’t take time to chew our food. Chew 30 times and then swallow — that’s my challenge to you.

By the way, if you’ve ever watched little kids, they chew about 30 times; it’s natural. So make sure your food is totally chewed before you swallow. That can help your low stomach acid.

Also, eat smaller meals. If you’re eating very, very large meals, you’re not going to allow your body to heal. That’s an issue.

In addition, try fasting or intermittent fasting. The many health benefits of fasting along with intermittent fasting benefits add to your overall gut health and can reverse low stomach acid — whether it’s a bone broth fast, a vegetable juice fast or intermittent fasting.

Part of your body healing is letting it recover. If you’re continually eating food from morning to sundown every day, your body doesn’t have time to recover and heal. Some fasting is another great way to help balance out stomach acid.

So remember, you need stomach acid. It’s good for you. And you want balanced levels. If you follow these home remedies to heal low stomach acid, I know you’re going to see results fast.

Pomegranate Reverses Atherosclerosis and Slows the Progression of Prostate Cancer

This is the one thing that all people with Type 2 diabetes should be taking every single day...religiously. Fantastic results and a great preventative approach!

Pomegranate is fast becoming one of today’s most talked-about nutrients. With emerging evidence indicating that it works via several mechanisms to remove plaque from human arteries, retard cancer growth, and promote more youthful-looking skin, pomegranate may soon be regarded as an essential nutrient. Its concentrated blend of powerful phytonutrients appears to confer profound protection against atherosclerosis, cancer, and other degenerative conditions. Health-conscious adults seeking to optimize their defense against these and other lethal diseases of aging should consider making pomegranate a part of their daily anti-aging regimen.

Research also shows that pomegranate can stop the progression of deadly prostate cancer. And scientists are now exploring pomegranate’s potential in averting ailments ranging from diabetes to Alzheimer’s disease, as well as its role in supporting skin, joint, dental, and liver health.

Boron Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk

Compelling evidence is accumulating that the trace mineral boron plays an important role in protecting men against deadly prostate cancer.

As men grow older, their risk for prostate cancer skyrockets and metastasis outside the prostate is “uniformly lethal.”

Fortunately, eye-opening studies demonstrate that boron has been found to selectively kill prostate cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed. In addition, boron has been found to lower PSA1—which was previously believed to be only a marker for prostate cancer. More recent research shows that elevated PSA is a causative factor in prostate cancer progression.

Adequate boron levels are associated with a 64% reduced risk of prostate cancer, but obtaining protective levels of boron from food alone is difficult. This means that supplementation with low-cost boron could be a lifesaver for aging males at risk for prostate cancer, in addition to other health benefits provided by this vital mineral.

In 1979, Dr. Whitaker founded the Whitaker Wellness Institute medical clinic and wellness center. Today, the Whitaker Wellness Institute is one of the oldest and largest providers of alternative health therapies in the United States.

If you have diabetes, what I’m about to tell you could prevent you from having a premature heart attack, save your eyesight, kidneys, legs, and nerves—even save your life. Diabetes has a devastating effect on virtually every system in the body, which sets the stage for a variety of diabetic complications. But, as I will explain, this devastation is largely preventable.

Nutrient Losses Cause Diabetic Complications

Diabetes is a nutritional wasting disease. The elevated blood sugar levels that characterize diabetes cause excessive urination. In fact, diabetes mellitus is taken from two Greek words meaning “to pass through” and “honey,” referring to excessive glucose-laden urination.

High blood sugar levels, which are caused by either lack of insulin or insulin resistance (type 1 or type 2 diabetes, respectively), overwhelm the kidneys’ capacity to reabsorb glucose as well as all water-soluble nutrients. Elevated blood sugar levels essentially act like an osmotic diuretic, washing out virtually everything.

Every time blood sugar rises and urination increases, patients with diabetes lose water, magnesium, zinc, B12, B6, folic acid, and many other nutrients. Although water is replaced by drinking, nothing is done to replenish the water-soluble nutrients that are also swept out. Replacing Lost Vitamins and Minerals Is Critical

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

Cardiovascular Disease

Congestive heart failure is one of the most devastating forms of cardiovascular disease.

More than 5.8 million people in the US are affected by congestive heart failure. If you’re diagnosed with congestive heart failure today, you have a 50/50 chance of being dead within five years.

Those aren’t good odds. But researchers have determined that with the help of CoQ10, you can beat these odds.

Mainstream medicine treats congestive heart failure with a barrage of medications including beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, digoxin, nitrates, aldosterone antagonists, anticoagulants, and glucose-lowering drugs. These drug combinations have added considerable years of life to patients with congestive heart failure.

Overlooked by most cardiologists, however, are published clinical studies showing that CoQ10 can dramatically improve treatment outcomes when properly used in conjunction with conventional treatments.

A recent international, multicenter study of patients with moderate-to-severe heart failure demonstrated, by the most conservative analysis, a 50% reduction in major cardiovascular events (strokes, heart attacks, etc.) and a 44% reduction in cardiovascular deaths, in response to CoQ10 supplementation.

This dramatic outcome validates earlier studies demonstrating the utility of CoQ10 in managing heart disease. It also points to the potential role CoQ10 plays in the prevention, rather than treatment, of heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases.

CoQ10 Helps Prevent Heart Failure

CoQ10 has been shown to prevent underlying pathological disorders that produce heart failure. This includes reducing atherosclerosis risk factors, improving endothelial function, and protecting against heart damage. Here is a summary of the encouraging data supporting the role of CoQ10 in heart disease prevention: CoQ10 Protects Against Arterial Occlusion

Heart attack survivors who took 120 mg a day of CoQ10 for one year reduced the rate of total cardiac events and nonfatal heart attacks by 45 and 46%, respectively, compared to controls, while beneficial HDL cholesterol rose significantly.8 When compared to patients on statins, those taking 60 mg a day of CoQ10 favorably modified numerous atherosclerosis risk factors, including lipid profiles, platelet clumping, and oxidative stress.18 In adults at intermediate risk for atherosclerosis who took a combination of CoQ10 (120 mg a day) and aged garlic extract (1,200 mg a day) for one year, atherosclerosis progression was 4-fold lower compared with control subjects, while markers of atherosclerosis-promoting inflammation were significantly reduced.19 CoQ10 helps prevent low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol from oxidizing and triggering arterial plaque formation.20

Two nutrients slash death from cardiovascular disease by 50 percent

Cardiovascular disease, which can be caused by the formation of arterial plaque, smoking, high blood pressure, sedentary lifestyle, poor diet and obesity, is a formidable foe.

It kills 17 million people around the world every year – making it the leading cause of death worldwide – and is also the number one cause of death in the United States, where it claims more lives yearly than all types of cancer. New cardiovascular disease research gives rise to hope and healing

A combination of two safe, natural supplements has been found to slash the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by a stunning 50 percent.

In a five-year study published in International Journal of Cardiology, Swedish researchers discovered that combining CoQ10 with selenium can dramatically reduce deaths from heart disease. The double-blind placebo-controlled study was conducted on 443 healthy adults between the ages of 70 and 88.

One group received 200 mgs a day of CoQ10 and 200 mcg a day of selenium, while the other received a placebo. The results were astonishing – while 12.6 percent of the placebo group died of heart disease over the next 5.2 years, the supplement group experienced only a 5.9 percent mortality rate: half that of the placebo group.

Natural combo puts brakes on frequent nighttime urination

But here’s the good news — Dr. Wright has successfully used an all-natural treatment to help countless guys put an end to the “2 a.m. Tango” for good. Now it’s your turn to benefit.

You see, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a common form of prostate enlargement that hits us guys as we age, is the most common cause of frequent nighttime bathroom trips. It causes bladder pressure and incomplete bladder emptying that leads to one frustrating trip to the toilet after another.

But Dr. Wright has discovered that BPH may actually be a symptom of zinc or essential fatty acid insufficiency for some men.

He recommends Zinc & Copper Complex three times daily to start, tapering down slowly as symptoms recede, along with 2 milligrams of copper. Dr. Wright also recommends taking one tablespoon of organically grown, carefully processed “high-lignan” Organic Flax Oil along with Vitamin E 400 IU .

If zinc and essential fatty acids don’t bring you complete relief, add some saw palmetto to the mix. This potent herb has been shown time and again to be a powerful weapon in the fight against BPH. Look for a PalmettoGuard Saw Palmetto with Beta-Sitosterol that’s 85 to 95 percent fatty acids and sterols, and try 160 milligrams twice daily.

I know how frustrating a poor night’s sleep can be. Give these safe, natural solutions a try, and treat yourself to the recuperative sleep — and the strong immune system — that you deserve.

Gout

Potassium bicarbonate dissolved in juice or sprinkled on food is a safe and effective way to ameliorate gout. Other substances that have evidence of ameliorating gout such as tart cherry juice should be safe to use with potassium bicarbonate. They had better be because there is potassium in almost all food. However, until more research is performed, it would be wise not to use them on the same day or at least in the same meal. I am convinced that potassium bicarbonate should be used to cure gout and chemicals never should be and that this procedure would eliminate gout from our society.

Arthritis

What should the arthritic person be eating? Perhaps we may reduce this discussion to the following protocol:

Primarily raw food diet including cultured dairy products such as cheese and yogurt In order of importance: 5 grams of niacinamide, 5 grams of vitamin C, bromelain, flax oil, capsaicin (topical), and 100 mg vitamin B6. For osteoarthritis, 1,500 mg glucosamine sulfate may be all that is needed. Other possibilities for rheumatoid arthritis: curcumin and ginger.

Avert Insulin Resistance, Prevent Diabetes

The bottom line: If you want to minimize your insulin resistance and prevent type 2 diabetes, you simply must get a handle on your weight. The diet program I find most effective with patients at Whitaker Wellness is my mini-fast with exercise program, also known as an intermittent fast. Give this eating plan a try, and get back on the road to health.

Reverse Diabetes with the Mini-Fast Program

I advise all my Friends with type 2 diabetes to lose weight and reverse their diabetes using Dr. Whitaker mini-fast with exercise program, or intermittent fasting diet..

Here’s how intermittent fasting diet works:

You get up in the morning and drink a glass of water or a cup of coffee or tea. You can use a little creamer or low-calorie sweetener like xylitol or stevia, and you can take your supplements if they don’t upset your stomach. But do not eat breakfast or drink anything other than coffee, tea or water.

Do 20–45 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise—walking, jogging, cycling or whatever you enjoy doing.

After you exercise, get on with your day, but continue fasting until lunch. Drink water, coffee or tea. Don’t worry about being too hungry to make it through the morning. This fasting/exercise combo dampens the appetite, and the caffeine in coffee and tea helps blunt hunger as well.

At lunchtime, break your fast and eat normally for the rest of the day. Get plenty of lean protein and low-fat, low-glycemic carbohydrates. Be sure you make healthy, sensible food choices. You don’t have to count calories, but you don’t want to pig out at lunch or dinner, either.

How the Intermittent Fasting Diet Melts Excess Weight

The intermittent fasting diet takes advantage of, and expands upon, the 10–12 hours you normally fast while sleeping.

By morning, your body is beginning to deplete the glycogen in your liver (from the carbohydrates eaten at your evening meal) and is starting to rely more on fat for energy. As your glycogen stores are progressively exhausted, your liver starts converting fat into ketones, which the brain and other tissues use as fuel. This fat-burning state is called ketosis.

Aerobic exercise while in the intermittent fasting state is a crucial part of the program because it rapidly puts you into ketosis. Overnight fasting is a start, but exercise really kicks things into high gear. The fuel used during the morning walk you’re taking in place of eating breakfast comes from burning fat, which is exactly what you want when you’re trying to lose weight.

Even better, if you continue fasting after exercising, you will stay in the ketotic state, further reducing fat stores.

Heal Diabetic Ulcers With Sugar

If diabetes were simply a matter of controlling blood sugar, that would be one thing. But this heal diabetic ulcers with sugar condition is often accompanied by other troublesome complications, one of them being wounds that heal slowly or not at all.

The good news is that there’s a far better solution for persistent sores than today’s antibiotic treatments, and it’s one I’ve been using at the Whitaker Wellness Institute for more than 20 years. It’s a simple sugar dressing.

Here’s how to use sugar to treat an open wound:

Unravel a 4” x 4” piece of gauze into a long strip and coat it with Vaseline. Place it around the outside edges of the wound, like a donut. Cover the wound with ¼-inch of sugar. (The Vaseline “donut” will keep it in place.) Place a 4” x 4” sponge on top of the wound. Bandage it firmly but not too snugly with a cling dressing. Change the dressing every one or two days. Remove, irrigate with water, saline, or hydrogen peroxide, pat dry, and repeat steps 1–3.

Diabetic Retinopathy

I believe the best way to protect your eyes from diabetic retinopathy symptoms and other diabetes-related eye problems is to make sure you’re getting nutrients that support the health of your blood vessels.

Here’s why. When blood glucose levels remain elevated for an extended time, sugar molecules can attach to protein molecules in a process called glycation. This process creates irreversible cross-links between adjacent protein molecules and forms new structures called advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs).

Among other things, AGEs can cause the collagen in our blood vessels to become stiff and inflexible. The tiny vessels in our eyes are particularly susceptible to this type of damage. However, there are two nutrients that can help maintain your healthy vision. L-Carnosine 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.

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

Everyone should take a potent, antioxidant-rich daily multi, but this is especially true for people with diabetes. Diabetes causes a lot of nutrients to be lost through the urine, and a good multi will help replace those losses and promote healthy vision.

Blood Clots

Diabetes increases the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries, which can cause dangerous blood clots. Nearly 80 percent of people who have diabetes will eventually die of clot-related causes.

4 steps to clearing away dangerous clots by Dr. Jonathan Wright

JVW: Presently, my recommendations for breaking up clots are:

Nattokinase — two 138-milligram capsules every four hours to start. Then, as your condition improves, you can taper off to one capsule every four hours, eventually taking only one capsule three times daily.

Fish oil — 1 tablespoon three times a day to start, tapering off to 1 tablespoon, twice daily after some progress is made. Eventually, you will be able to take a general maintenance dose of 1 1/2 tablespoonful daily.

Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) — 400 IU, three times a day to start, tapering down to 600 IU daily.

Vitamin C — 2 grams, three times daily to start, then taper down to 1 gram, three times daily. Vitamin C isn’t a “clotbuster” itself, but it should always be included when your body is under stress.

Treatment for Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes. It is generally assumed that you can prevent it by maintaining good control of your blood glucose levels; however, it still occurs frequently.

Although there is no effective conventional treatment for diabetic neuropathy, there are nutrients that can help slow down, stop, and even reverse its progression (as well as one other alternative solution). Try these in addition to a potent, antioxidant-rich daily multivitamin.

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.

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.

Cardiovascular Health And Heart Disease

Of all the beneficial nutritional supplements you can take, Omega-3 Fish Oil is at the top of the list. It represents the biggest bang for your buck. Regular use can reduce your risk from sudden death heart attack by 50–80%. Sudden death heart attack is the single largest cause of death in the U.S., coming in at 325,000 adult deaths each year. All you need do is take 2–3 g of Omega-3s (as DHA and EPA) per day. Make sure the supplements you take are double distilled with added antioxidant protection (vitamin E, fat-soluble C, and diosmin).

Omega-3s also reduces death from arrhythmias, including ventricular fibrillation (the most commonly identified arrhythmia in cardiac arrest) and tachycardia (when heart rate exceeds normalcy). Omega-3s also diminish thrombosis (formation of blood clots), and thus helps prevent myocardial infarction (heart attacks)

Omega-3s can also inhibit the development of atherosclerosis, Surprisingly, the average intake among Americans through the food supply is minuscule. And by the way, the body cannot make DHA or EPA, so supplementing is crucial.

Also, way up on the list of preventative supplements is CoEnzymeQ10. This oil-soluble, vitamin-like substance is present in most cells, primarily in the mitochondria. It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. CoQ10 improves chronic heart failure symptoms and reducing major cardiovascular events. One study showed a 44% reduction of mortality. You should also know that statins inhibit the production of CoQ10.

Then there is natural thyroid hormone. Analyses of studies show that even subclinical hypothyroidism poses substantial risk for coronary artery disease. Taking a thyroid supplement can reduce this vulnerability.

Still focusing on Heart Disease, a good bet is to add pomegranate juice to your diet. As little as 8 oz per day of sugar-reduced pomegranate juice can improve myocardial perfusion in those with coronary heart disease. Pomegranate juice can also inhibit an enzyme that causes vasoconstriction. It also reduces systolic blood pressure, while it raises the activity of HDL, the good cholesterol, and protects it.

Not to be missed also is vitamin B3, aka Niacin, This B vitamin can reduce total cholesterol, reduce LDL (the bad cholesterol by 25%, triglycerides by 50%, and at the same time increase HDL, the good cholesterol.

Dr. Ward Dean, the renowned bio-gerontologist has remarked that Niacin has been shown to reduce non-fatal heart attacks by 26% in just 6 years. At the same time, it reduced strokes by 24%, and reduced mortality, adding two more years of life.

Pomegranate Reverses Atherosclerosis and Slows the Progression of Prostate Cancer

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.

RAW CoQ10* Arginine *Ribose* Omega 3-6-9 *L-Carnitine

Many people with diabetes experience discomfort in their legs and feet, with symptoms such as cramping, numbness, tingling, and pain. The culprits may be poor circulation, nerve damage, or both, and the underlying causes are referred to as peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and peripheral neuropathy.

Restricted blood flow and plaque ruptures can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and even death.

Now, the typical mainstream approach to atherosclerosis is to try to prevent it from getting worse. And there’s certainly some merit to that.

But there are actually some safe, natural treatments that can improve artery health and may help roll back some of the damage from atherosclerosis.

The compound resveratrol, for example, has been found to block the production of a chemical compound (trimethylamine-N-oxide) that contributes to the hardening of your arteries. Researchers have also discovered that loading up on magnesium may stop plaque buildup in your arteries.

You can get magnesium as a supplement or in lots of foods like fresh spinach, broccoli, black beans, halibut, and peanuts.

Finally, there has been very interesting research on the role of grape seed extract in improving atherosclerosis. Both human and animal studies have found it can prevent atherosclerosis and even reduce plaque.

A study out of China last year found that grape seed extract led to about an 11 percent decrease in plaque scores after six months.

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.

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.

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.

Modified Citrus Pectin

EcoNugenics PectaSol-C Modified Citrus Pectin 270 Vegetable Capsules

The annual gathering of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) is considered the world’s most prestigious cancer forum. More than 25,000 oncology experts attend this meeting, and the media eagerly reports on meaningful advances in cancer prevention and treatment.

At the 2013 ASCO meeting, findings from a study were released that underscored how effective certain natural compounds can be as a prostate cancer therapy.

In this placebo-controlled, double-blind trial of treatment-refractory prostate cancer patients, a four-nutrient supplement resulted in a 63.8% median reduction in the increase of PSA levels (Thomas 2013). The PSA marker is used by oncologists to determine progression or regression of prostate cancer, and to evaluate whether treatments are working or failing.

In the study presented at ASCO, patients with a PSA relapse after radiotherapy or surgery for localized prostate cancer took two daily capsules containing pomegranate seed, broccoli, green tea, and turmeric. Over a six-month period, median PSA levels increased only 14.7% in the supplement group—compared to 78.5% in the placebo group (Thomas 2013)! PSA levels remained stable, or below, baseline values for a compelling 46% of the supplement patients—but for only 14% of the placebo patients. Pomi-T�, 60 vegetarian capsules

Fighting Cancer Metastasis and Heavy Metal Toxicities With Modified Citrus Pectin

Certain malignancies (like brain tumors) kill by infiltrating into healthy tissues, but the vast majority of cancer deaths occur when tumor cells enter the blood and lymphatic systems and travel to the liver, lungs, bones, and other distant parts of the body.

Unfortunately, there have been few effective approaches to preventing cancer metastasis. The encouraging news is that a specialized fruit polysaccharide called modified citrus pectin has demonstrated unique properties in blocking cancer cell aggregation, adhesion, and metastasis.

Clinical research shows that modified citrus pectin helps limit disease progression in men with advanced prostate cancer. In addition to its cancer-inhibiting effects, modified citrus pectin shows promise in chelating toxic heavy metals that can be so damaging to overall health.

Modified citrus pectin is thought to be useful in the prevention and treatment of metastatic cancer, especially in solid tumors like melanoma and cancers of the prostate, colon, and breast. Scientists believe that MCP works by inhibiting two key processes involved in cancer progression: angiogenesis and metastasis. Preventing Cancer Metastasis

Angiogenesis is the process in which cancer cells establish their own blood supply to fuel their growth. Metastasis occurs when cancer cells break away from the original tumor, enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system, and form a new tumor in a different organ or other parts of the body.8 Secondary or metastatic cancers often pose more life-threatening circumstances than the original tumor.

Functional Foods as Powerful Combatants Against Prostate Cancer

Graviola Gold 16 Oz* Graviola Tincture Certified Organic 4 Fl Oz*PAW PAW* Pomi-T�, 60 vegetarian capsules

Prostate cancer becomes a killer when it invades or metastasizes; prior to those events it can be detected and successfully treated. But too many men with prostate cancer undergo needless and invasive surgery, chemo-, or radiation therapy. A new pill containing concentrated forms of four functional foods has now been shown to significantly slow the rise of PSA, the major marker of prostate cancer progression. The components, pomegranate, green tea, turmeric, and broccoli, have all independently been shown to have protective effects on prostate tissue; a new study demonstrates that they can work together in concert to slow the disease in men who already have prostate cancer. Each food component works by different, but powerful, epigenetic mechanisms to modify the way prostate cells regulate their growth and development. Using all four in one simple pill optimizes both prevention and treatment of prostate cancer, without significant side effects.

Vitamin B1 Deficiency Key To Vascular Problems For Diabetic Patients, Study Suggests

The researchers found that the decreased availability of thiamine in vascular cells in diabetes was linked to a marker of microvascular and macrovascular complications. It likely reflects problems in endothelial cells (endothelial cells line the body’s entire circulatory system) and increased risk of atherosclerosis (chronic inflammatuion in the artery walls).

Clinical trial of vitamin B1 helps reverse early kidney disease in diabetics. ... Diabetes greatly increases the risk of kidney disease, which is detected in its early stage by testing for albumin in the urine.
