How to Beat Metabolic Syndrome Tens of millions of Americans are suffering with metabolic syndrome—the precursor to type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a name given to describe a group of risk factors that increase your chances of developing not only diabetes, but also heart disease and stroke. They include abdominal fat, hypertension, abnormal lipids (high triglycerides and low beneficial HDL cholesterol), and/or borderline high blood sugar. Fortunately, you can beat metabolic syndrome by addressing its underlying cause: insulin resistance.Given how common metabolic syndrome is, insulin resistance is surprisingly misunderstood. Here's an overview:After your digestive system has broken down the food you eat into its basic constituents, nutrients enter the bloodstream. The presence of glucose (sugar) prompts the pancreas to secrete insulin, which signals the cells to let nutrients inside.Unfortunately, inactivity, poor diet, and particularly excess weight reduce the cells’ sensitivity to these signals, so the pancreas is forced to churn out more and more insulin in order to get the message across. This results in chronically high levels of both insulin and blood sugar.It’s obvious that this would take a toll on the pancreas and be one of the top type 2 diabetes causes, but what about the other aspects of insulin resistance and symptoms of metabolic syndrome?Elevated insulin levels thicken the blood vessels and affect kidney function, which contribute to hypertension. They also promote fat storage and shut down fat burning, so more and more fat gets socked away, particularly in the abdominal area.Blood lipid levels also remain elevated, which triggers systemic inflammation and imbalances in hormones that affect appetite and energy utilization. This perpetuates the vicious cycle of insulin resistance and weight gain.Unfortunately, the fallout doesn’t end here. Insulin resistance is linked to increased risk of fatty liver disease, gout, polycystic ovary syndrome, memory loss, and some types of cancer. But there’s an upside. Insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome respond rapidly to lifestyle changes and nutritional therapies.Top 5 Metabolic Syndrome Treatments #1: Get a handle on your weight. The best way to do this is with the mini-fast with exercise (morning exercise, no food before noon, and sensible eating the rest of the day), which turns on fat burning like there’s no tomorrow.Metabolic Syndrome Treatment #2: Eat a high-fiber, low-glycemic, Mediterranean-type diet. Research has shown that this type of healthy diet is effective at addressing (and preventing) all of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.Metabolic Syndrome Treatment #3: Exercise most days of the week. If you follow the mini-fast protocol, you’ll already have this covered.Metabolic Syndrome Treatment #4: Take a potent daily multivitamin, plus other supplements that have been shown to be effective for metabolic syndrome. I recommend starting with 2–6 g of fish oil, 2,000–5,000 IU of vitamin D, 200–300 mg of CoQ10, 500–1,500 mg of niacin, and 300 mg of GreenSelect Phytosome green tea extract, taken daily, in divided doses. If you discover you need extra support, you may need to add other supplements that lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar, or that help to promote weight loss.Metabolic Syndrome Treatment #5: We routinely test our patients who have metabolic syndrome to determine if they have sleep apnea, and it’s truly shocking how often the two conditions go hand in hand—and how seldom sleep apnea is diagnosed or treated.
Natural Eradication of Cancer
"Cancer", Dr. Rath documents his scientific discovery that certain nutrients, including L-lysine, are powerful natural inhibitors of collagen-digesting enzymes. It is this discovery that has put Matthias Rath, Inc. on the path to defeating this devastating disease.The Spread of Cancer Can Be Controlled
A new study has recognized that higher intakes of vitamin C significantly reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease. Published in the Nutrients journal by researchers in Spain, the researchers found that study participants with the highest intakes of this essential micronutrient reduced their risk by an impressive 70 percent. By confirming the role of vitamin C in preventing deaths from cardiovascular disease, the study adds further support to Dr. Rath’s quarter-century of groundbreaking scientific research and discoveries in this area.Find out more here Boost Circulation Naturally
Let’s first discuss how to improve circulation with supplements. There are two primary targets to consider for improved circulation: enhancing the viscosity of the blood and boosting the health of the blood vessels. Enhance and Support Blood Viscosity.When it comes to improving and supporting normal blood viscosity, there are a few supplements I recommend. Seanol (a seaweed extract) and nattokinase (an enzyme present in natto, a Japanese fermented food) both play a role in this aspect of improved circulation. These unique compounds help normalize fibrinogen and other clotting factors in the blood, which results in better overall circulation. The suggested dose is 300 mg of Seanol and 100 mg (2,000 fibrinolytic units) of nattokinase per day.The essential fatty acids in fish oil and other omega-3 supplements improve circulation by reducing the tendency of the platelets to stick together and impair blood flow. Fish oil’s anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective effects also contribute to improved circulation. Aim for 2,000–5,000 mg per day of a high quality fish oil.The herb Ginkgo biloba also has a slight blood-thinning effect and is well known for its ability to boost circulation. The recommended dose is 120 mg daily. Improved circulation also depends on healthy, responsive arteries that enable blood to flow freely. Nitric oxide (NO) is a powerful vasodilator that signals the smooth muscles of the arteries to relax and dilate, making it a key regulator of blood flow. It also inhibits the aggregation of platelets and enhances the health of the endothelium and the entire cardiovascular system. Although the amino acid supplements L-arginine and L-citrulline are best known for increasing NO, recent research reveals that Pycnogenol (derived from pine bark), amla (an Ayurvedic herb), and quercetin (a bioflavonoid in onions and apples) also stimulate NO production and improve circulation. The suggested daily doses are 2 g of L-arginine three times a day on an empty stomach, 3–6 g of L-citrulline in divided doses, 50–100 mg of Pycnogenol, 500 mg of amla, and 200 mg of quercetin. All of these supplements that boost circulation naturally can be found online and in some health food stores. NOTE: If you are taking Coumadin or other blood thinning medications or have a bleeding disorder, talk to your doctor before using any supplements that improve circulation.

Pauling Therapy for the Reversal of Heart Disease
Vitamin C: to bowel tolerance – as much as you can take without diarrhea. For most people this will be in the range of five to ten grams (5,000-10,000 mg.) each day. Spread this amount into two equal doses 12 hours apart. (Vitamin C prevents further cracking of the blood vessel wall – the beginning of the disease.) L-Proline: 3 grams twice per day (acts to release lipoprotein(a) from plaque formation and prevent further deposition of same). L-Lysine: 3 grams twice each day (acts to release lipoprotein(a) from plaque formation and prevent further deposition of same). Co-enzyme Q10: 90-180 mg. twice per day (strengthens the heart muscle). L-Carnitine: 3 grams twice per day (also strengthens the heart muscle). Niacin: Decreases production of lipoprotein(a) in the liver. Inositol hexanicotinate is a form of niacin which gives less of a problem with flushing and therefore allows for larger therapeutic doses. Begin with 250 mg. at lunch, 500 mg. at dinner and 500 mg. at bedtime the first day; then increase gradually over a few days until you reach four grams per day, or the highest dose under four grams you can tolerate. Be sure to ask your doctor for liver enzyme level tests every two months or less to be sure your liver is able to handle the dose you are taking. Vitamin E: 800-2400 IU per day. (Inhibits proliferation of smooth muscle cells in the walls of arteries undergoing the atherosclerotic changes.)
