Trace Minerals and Healing

Plant sourced trace mineral compounds have shown some amazing abilities to re-balance the internal chemistry of our bodies. Many chronic conditions such as arthritis, chronic inflammation, and a host of other issues have been improved or even eliminated through mineral saturation of the soft tissues and bones of the body with plant sourced bio-electrical trace minerals.

The human body is an electrical organism. Your heart and brain for example function because of the 1.5 volts of electricity your body generates on a constant basis. The body uses minerals, both major and trace, to produce that current that drives the body via the central nervous system. The ability for negatively charged organic trace mineral compounds to support this electrical current can easily be demonstrated as when added to water, an insulating substance, the current flow is immediately restored.

One area of healing that has received a lot of attention is that of accelerating the mending of broken bones and injuries to soft tissues. Work done at New York Hospital in the 1960’s and 70’s established that by applying a direct current to a broken bone, it would heal 40% faster. This was the beginning of our understanding of how electrical potential plays a role in constantly rebuilding and recovering the body from all types of injuries.

Bio-electrical trace minerals from plant sources that bear a negative charge do much the same thing as the application of the direct current mentioned above but do so on a consistent basis as long as they are made available to the living system of the body. We have used these minerals in mega doses with many athletes to accelerate their healing and recovery from injuries with great success. The body will absorb minerals until its storehouse is filled. Once this happens the body simply expels excess minerals with no harmful effects whatsoever, providing that they carry a negative charge. Positively charged minerals on the other hand can build up in the body to excess.

Our plant based bio-electrical trace mineral supplement is sourced from the original Utah mine in use for this purpose since the 1930’s. These minerals are offered through Phoenix Nutritionals under the name Liquid Essentials. We use these as part of a total support program for a wide variety of issues. Check back next week for more information on the best plant based trace minerals and how they can help you.

Should you have questions about the need and use of these minerals in your health please feel free to call our offices at 1-888-454-8464.

Not All Calcium is created equal

Since calcium is the hardest mineral for the body to absorb it is essential to know the source of the calcium in your supplement. I remember a few years ago the “coral calcium” craze. Coral calcium, if it’s not chelated, is nothing more than ground up rocks and very difficult for the body to absorb, especially after age 50. This is because we have started to lose our ability to produce enough natural stomach acids to properly change the pH of the calcium. Since calcium only absorbs in an acid environment, therein lies the problem. Any calcium supplement you choose must be chelated or acidified to help ensure better absorption. Even at that increasing the natural stomach acid production may be helpful to further enhance absorption rates.

Keep in mind too, that calcium should never be taken alone but always with magnesium and several key trace minerals to enhance absorption further. If bone loss or osteoporosis is a concern than it is imperative that your calcium supplement also contain the trace mineral strontium since it has the ability to enhance transport of calcium to bone tissue, increasing bone density over time.

Osteoporosis can be reversed and further bone loss halted but the proper steps must be taken in order to do so. First supply the body with adequate calcium along with the supportive trace minerals necessary to get that calcium back to the bones Secondly be sure to check your digestion and if upper digestive disturbances are present, fix them right away as this will prevent full absorption of any calcium you may take.

At least seven placebo controlled studies have shown that the right form of calcium together with all the co-factors, can not only stop bone loss but actually increase bone density even in senior citizens. This is good news since most of the drugs for this problem can have serious side effects if taken to long. Some of them produce seemingly great results but do so by only masking bone loss so it doesn’t show up on the density tests!! Be sure to watch my video Calcium and Absorption and check back next month for more information about the list of digestive enzymes and how they work for you.

Osteoporosis and Calcium Absorption

Calcium, a major essential mineral, is also one of the hardest to absorb in the body. In order to achieve beneficial absorption calcium must be in an acidic environment. This is normally accomplished via the gastric acids produced during digestion in the stomach. The problem is that as we grow older we begin to lose the ability to produce adequate gastric acids and this results in a host of digestive disorders such as gas, boating, heartburn, acid reflux, etc. When these symptoms are present it is almost exclusively due to the inability of the stomach to produce sufficient gastric acid to properly begin the digestive process. Under these conditions it is also very difficult for the body to absorb proteins and major minerals like calcium. This is one of the biggest reasons why osteoporosis becomes a bigger threat as we age. Without gastric acids we cannot absorb calcium even if we ingest it.

That said now consider that millions of people use antacids, either over the counter or by prescription to destroy what little acid their stomach might still be able to produce. Yes these substances can bring relief from indigestion but they do so by destroying the acid in the stomach and hence causing the food to be dumped into the small intestine. The end result of the use of these antacids is a loss of protein and a loss of minerals in bones due to calcium deficiency.

A far better solution to this problem would be to INCREASE the acid level of the stomach and to stimulate it to produce more acid as it did when we were younger. Virtually all the classic symptoms of indigestion are caused by a lack of adequate stomach acid needed to break down the food. Without enough stomach acid the body cannot manufacture enzymes needed to further continue the process of digestion and the result is multiple digestive issues from beginning to the end!!

We use a natural digestive formula that contains acids specifically designed to increase the stomach acid much in the same way as priming a well. To this we add natural enzyme precursor agents that the body uses to build enzymes for the digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. I have used this formula with people who were suffering from extreme acid reflux and have eliminated it within 4 to 7 days by increasing the stomach acids not destroying them. This formula is called DigestEze and is available from Phoenix Nutritionals. Watch my video Indigestion, Acid Reflux, and Hearthburn to better understand how your digestive system works. Also check back soon for more information about stomach acid ph and how you can to better manage digestive disturbances.

Preventing Bone Loss at Any Age

Osteoporosis or the loss of bone density is so common that it seems almost inevitable, but it doesn’t have to be! Another myth about bone loss is that it only happens to old people. While we are more susceptible to this as we age, it can start happening as early as middle age. Bone loss occurs for one simple reason – a lack of calcium returning to the bones. Every day we lose bone mass even when young but as long as the body is able to replace the calcium necessary to rebuild that bone everything stays even. As we age we tend to lose the ability to transport calcium back to the bones. This may be caused by a variety of factors such as poor digestion, lack of calcium in the diet or in some cases hormonal imbalances.

Calcium is one of the hardest minerals for the body to absorb and it can only be absorbed when it is properly acidified. This is why many supplement manufacturers pre-acidify their calcium and other minerals through a process called chelation. Even with this supportive measure present many of us are so lacking in natural stomach acids that the calcium we absorb is minimal. We often say that if digestive disturbances are present your calcium absorption is probably compromised.

The next factor is to help ensure that the calcium we do absorb is transported back to bone tissue. For this we rely on several key trace minerals such a boron, manganese, copper, zinc, and strontium. In fact strontium is so effective in carrying calcium back, to bone tissues that it has been shown clinically, to increase calcium to bone transport by up to 10-fold.

When looking for a calcium supplement be sure that the minerals are chelated and that all the supportive trace minerals are also present in the formula. In order to get the most benefit from your calcium these trace minerals must be present at the same time as the calcium so taking a formula with all these in one is the logical approach.

Our calcium formula that we are using is the only formula that has been proven to not only stop bone loss but to actually increase bone density by as much as 2% every year. This makes the combination ideal for virtually anyone age 50 or older. Order Bio-Complete Calcium Plus today and check back soon for more information about the best calcium supplement coming next week.

Controlling Inflammation within the Body

There are many forms of inflammation: acute inflammation would be what happens when you drop a brick on your foot, chronic inflammation is ongoing such as with arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and lastly there is silent inflammation, which exists below the body’s pain awareness level so it can be going on and you would be unaware of it. Regardless which form of inflammation you have, if it goes on long enough it will damage living tissues and even contribute to their destruction as in arthritis for an example.

This is why controlling inflammation is so important. While the inflammatory process is protective in acute situations, it can become very destructive should it be present for prolonged periods. Pain and inflammation are so common it has made over the counter pain meds one of the most popular non-prescription drugs available. Just because they are over the counter doesn’t mean that they are without side effects however. Excess use can result in internal bleeding and other blood consistency changes.

These potentially dangerous side effects can oftentimes be avoided by using natural nutrients that also have anti-inflammatory properties but without the blood thinning effects. Once again we find several such nutrients through clinical research and when they are used together the effects are much greater than if we used just one or two alone.

Silent inflammation can slowly damage internal tissues, which is what we see happening in people with diabetes and heart disease for example. Insulin the hormone that regulates blood sugar is highly pro-inflammatory when present to excess as it is in type II diabetes. Much of the damage to arteries and even the heart itself is now thought to be the result of silent inflammation over years of time. This is why we advise all of our clients that come to us to take a natural inflammation support formula if they have almost any chronic ongoing disorder present.

The formula we use is now available from www.phoenixnutritionals.com. It’s called InflamEze. Check back next week for more information about Digestive Awareness Month, please call Dr Whiting at 1-888-454-8464 anytime.

Arthritis – The Preventable Chronic Disorder

Millions of people suffer from one form of arthritis or another. By far the most common is osteoarthritis, which accounts for almost 70% of all arthritis cases worldwide. This form of arthritis is the result of a destruction of the cartilage tissues that cushions bone within joints. As the joint ages and becomes less flexible, increased trauma takes place resulting in irritation and inflammation. The inflammatory process is very pro destructive as synovial fluid enters the joint, increasing the destruction of cartilage tissue. As this condition continues great pain and loss of motion is the result.

The best way to address this situation is to do so sooner rather than later. As long as there is some cartilage left in a joint it can be rebuilt with the right nutrients. Once again the concept of totality plays a key role in this process. Using such nutrients as chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine is fine but much better results may be obtained when several joint support nutrients are used at the same time. The combination makes the individual nutrients much more effective.

Exercise is also very important for those suffering from arthritis as it helps prevent the freezing up of joints and the loss of range of motion. Exercise however should be such that it works the joints but not over extends them as this can make the joint pain worse and may even further damage the integrity of the joint itself.

The key to managing and even reversing arthritis is three fold. Firstly to help control inflammation through key nutrients. Prolonged inflammation of tissues results in their accelerated destruction. Next is to provide the body with the raw materials needed to rebuild the joint, cartilage, and connective tissues. Lastly is to ensure that the organs of elimination are regularly detoxified. Excess toxins in the body are a major contributor to the arthritic process.

The formulas we developed for this program are called InflamEze for inflammation support, Joint Flow for joint support and Slim Cleanse for assisting the body in the elimination of excess toxins. These formulas may be obtained from Phoenix Nutritionals. Check back soon for more information about Osteoporosis Awareness Month coming next week.

May is Arthritis, Osteoporosis, & Digestion Awareness Month!

This month the focus nationwide is on three chronic and epidemic disorders namely arthritis, osteoporosis, and digestive disorders. Arthritis is so common in people over 50 that if they go to a doctor and are asked about arthritis and say that they don’t have this problem the doctor notes that “patient denies arthritis”!! Nonetheless for millions of people the pain and immobility of arthritis issues compromise their quality of life on a daily basis. Arthritis is the loss of cartilage tissue due to a variety of chemical breakdowns. The good news is that cartilage can be rebuilt with the right nutrients. Also natural anti-inflammatory nutrients can help control inflammation, stiffness, and pain.

It has often been said that health begins in the digestive tract and this is true because if your digestion is compromised it’s not only uncomfortable but also results in a lack of absorption of nutrients, leading to a variety of other health challenges. Most all digestive problems such as gas, boating, heartburn, Acid reflux, and bowel disturbances are the result of an imbalance in the stomach pH. When the stomach is to alkaline, proteins and minerals are not absorbed. This lack of acid also prevents the formation of enzymes necessary to digest fats and carbohydrates. Fortunately fixing this problem is relatively easy. By adding factors to improve stomach acid production and raw materials the body uses to build digestive enzymes we can eliminate these issues safely.

Joint Flow – This formula provides the raw materials to support the rebuilding of joint connective tissue and cartilage. This is the first step in managing arthritic conditions through natural support

Inflameze – This formula provides support for better managing inflammation within the body, helping to reduce pain and swelling.

Bio-Complete Calcium Plus – This combination of calcium and supportive trace minerals has been shown to have the highest absorption rate of any form of calcium, thus helping to replace lost bone mass.

DigestEze – This formula provides support for a healthy digestive system by increasing natural stomach acids and providing the raw materials the body needs to manufacture digestive enzymes in adequate amounts to ensure full digestion and absorption of nutrients from food.

Is stress affecting your health?

It has often been said that stress is the cardinal cause of most all disease and disorder within the body. Certainly excess stress can make almost any existing issues much worse. People with digestive disorders complain of much worse symptoms when under stress. Those with complications of the menopause report increased hot flashes and night sweats while excess stress is a factor. We also know that prolonged stress can adversely affect the cardiovascular system and even those with diabetes report a much more difficult time to regulate their blood sugar while excess stress is a factor.

From the holistic point of view, we look at an individual’s stress levels first when building a supplement support system for them. Because stress can affect so many bodily functions, if it is present to excess we must always address that issue up front because if not everything else we do to set the persons internal body chemistry right will not be nearly as effective. The stress formula called Stress Eze we developed here at our Institute provides the key nutrients necessary for supporting the body even under extreme stress. I have given this formula to people who were experiencing severe stress and trauma and within just a few days their anxiety was lowered and the negative effects of the stress were virtually gone. This is because the stress response cycle, if it goes on too long, not only wears on the central nervous system but also produces adrenal fatigue. Once these factors set in, the individual begins to experience insomnia, anxiety, and eventually depression as a result of the depletion of the nutrients needed to support these systems. One example is with the B –Vitamin Pantothenic Acid. This nutrient, along with B-12, are used by the body to buffer the negative effects of stress on the nervous system and the adrenal glands. Under stress your body can use as much as 60 mg of Pantothenic acid every hour, yet the Daily Value for this nutrient is only 60 mg per day!!

If you are experiencing excess stress in your life from any source, you should strongly consider adding a high potency stress support formula to your supplement program. Phoenix Nutritionals offers our formula under the name Stress Eze. According to their figures, this is one of the most popular formulas they sell and they report that people will panic if it happens to go on back order for any length of time. This is simply, because it works!! Check back soon for more information about Stress and how it can affect your health coming next week.

You can learn more about the effects of stress and the role nutrients play in supporting the body by watching my video Dr Whiting on Stress Management.

Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness month and while this disorder remains a mystery, there have been some interesting concepts put forward regarding the causes of this disorder. The work of the late Bernard Rimland here in San Diego focused on holistic approaches to this problem. He was able to establish that most kids with Autism have a serious vitamin B-6 deficiency and through using mega doses of this nutrient, was able to bring them back to near normal function at the very least greatly improved. In the past few months we have had many parents use our Oxy Aloe Formula and many have claimed amazing improvements with their children while others have reported little or no change. We do not fully understand why this is as of yet but when you have a child with this condition, as parents you are willing to try most anything that is safe in the hopes of seeing improvements. Parents who have seen benefits from the Oxy formula have reported greater alertness and better thought processing. We even had one parent tell us that their son’s speech improved dramatically while using the formula.

Certainly if I was in the position of having a child with this disorder I too, would try anything to see improvement. The Oxy Aloe Formula cannot hurt them in any way as long as the dose is adjusted for their age and it may be worth a try for you.

Those interested in Dr. Rimland’s work can reach his Autism Research Institute here in San Diego California by simply typing his name into your search engine. Check back soon for information about Autism Awareness Month coming next week.

Liquid Delivery System for Baseline Nutrients

After the age of 50 or so our ability to both digest and absorb nutrients declines steadily. This is due to many factors including consuming a diet of dead lifeless over-processed foods for past decades. This results in a lack of enzyme production in the stomach and an imbalance in the pH of gastric fluids. Under these circumstances taking a supplement in tablet form becomes less and less effective due to our inability to break them down. You may have heard of the old story about the septic tanks and how full they are with supplement tablets that passed through someone’s digestive system whole and came out much like they went in.

After many months of trial and error, we developed a system of liquid delivery to address all the issues of failing digestion. Firstly at a certain age we begin to lose the ability to produce enough natural stomach acid. This results is heartburn, bloating, and acid reflux. Instead of destroying what little acid might remain we should be increasing the acid in the stomach to better digest protein foods.

The next problem then becomes the ratio of one nutrient to another. In nature these ratios are present naturally but since our foods do not contain many of these nutrient any longer that ratio is often disrupted. A supplement that is designed to replace these nutrients must also consider ratios. You can take our Vitamin and Mineral Quiz FREE and Dr Whiting will call you after he receives it.

When we developed our liquid delivery system we first made certain that the potency of each nutrient was sufficient to meet the needs of the body in our lifestyles. Next we addressed the issue of ratios to ensure that the body had access to all the nutrients as nature intended. We then suspended these nutrients in a liquid delivery system, which we adjusted to a pH of 4.5 – the natural acidity of the healthy stomach. Through these steps we have been able to produce a supplement that can be enjoyed and will benefit anyone at any age.

Stress Awareness Month

Stress is the cardinal cause of most disease. The presence of excess stress will make almost any pre-existing condition worse due to its effect on bodily functions. Stress is a given in most of our lives but when the level of stress rises it can produce devastating side effects. Stress effects your cardiovascular system, the immune system, and the digestive system to name but a few. Since we all live with stress we often take it for granted and just try to ignore it. Many turn to drugs or alcohol to relax and attempt to relieve excess stress but the fact is that this level of stress consumes key nutrients at an alarming rate. These nutrients are essentially the B-complex vitamins. For example during periods of high stress your body can use up to 60 mg of pantothenic acid per hour yet the Daily Value of this vitamin is only 60 mg per day!! A deficiency of pantothenic acid and B-12 can lead to central nervous system problems as well as adrenal exhaustion.

So in this month of April let’s take out time to address our stress levels and if elevated provide the body with the nutrients it needs in the right amounts to protect the nervous system and the adrenal glands. Our Stress Eze formula is a convenient and ideal way to address this.

Stress Eze – Key nutrients for a high stress lifestyle – This formula contains the stress related nutrients in mega dose amounts and is designed to support the body during excess stress. If your stress level is ongoing for whatever reason, you may wish to take this formula on an ongoing basis. Watch my video Dr Whiting on Stress Management and check back soon for more information about Stress Awareness Month.

Trace Minerals the Missing Longevity Link

At the moment of conception, each of us begins a journey called life. We start this adventure as a single fertilized cell in the mother’s womb.

Within this cell, lies all of the knowledge for your body, cell by cell, and organ by organ.

There are countless tissue structures, which must be formed, as well as skeletal structures and chemical processes. The knowledge, for each of these complex activities, lies within that single fertilized cell. Hidden deep, within the heart of the cell called the nucleus, is the DNA, the carrier of all knowledge.

Shortly after conception takes place, that single cell will prepare to divide and the one will become two, and the two will become four, and so on. This cell division will continue on until a perfect biochemical wonder develops over a nine-month period of time, ready to enter the world as a human being, complete in every way.

This vastly complex process, from its beginning, is, almost totally, dependent upon the presence of nutrients that have, previously, been little recognized.

Enzyme production is responsible for proper digestion and absorption of the foods we eat, along with thousands of other biochemical functions. Enzyme production is, also, dependent upon the trace mineral group because enzymes are formed, only, in the presence of trace minerals.

Trace elements are, also, an integral part of the structures of most hormones such as thyroid hormones, insulin, adrenalin, and the sex hormones. Some of the most devastating disease conditions arise from the malfunction of the endocrine system and hormone activity. Proper supplementation, with trace minerals, often helps to regulate hormonal activities, one with the other.

Since most all biochemical activities begin at the cellular level that is where we should focus our attention. The micro trace elements work there to provide the right environment for repair and maintenance of the body. Using the micro trace elements in supplement form can support this process and over time may help to keep you active, flexible and younger later years in life. Remember that all chronic disorders such as arthritis and related joint issues can begin decades before you feel the pain. Keeping your body nourished with the micro minerals may go a long way towards warding off problems later in life. Check back next week for more information on the best plant based trace minerals and how they can help you.

Diabetes Alert Day!

Diabetes is the most epidemic chronic disease in the world and today has been set aside to make people aware of the seriousness of this disorder and how to prevent its progression. Diabetes has been com-pared to a non-infectious leprosy as it destroys the body one part at a time. Some of the eventual side effects from diabetes include:

Blindness
Heart Disease
High Blood Pressure
Elevated Blood Lipids
Neuropathy (the destruction of nerve tissue)
Limb Amputations
Kidney Failure
And on and on.

It is essential that diabetes be prevented if possible and managed if it already exists in order to avoid these deadly complications.

A Diabetes Support Formula, called GlucoCrave Xtreme, is available from Phoenix Nutritionals on their website or you can call to order it at 1-800-440-2390.

Why Can’t I Get My Nutrition From Food?

Everyone is always telling us to “eat better” yet even if we try and do so it may not fully meet our body’s nutritional needs. The nutrients in our foods have been steadily declining for several decades. This is due initially to poor farming techniques and not re-mineralizing the farmlands with the 70+ micro nutrients needed for plant health as well as our own.

Today we have super high calorie foods available everywhere but foods that supply less than half the nutrients needed for wellness. This deficiency causes the body to crave more and more food – not for the calories but for the missing nutrients, nutrients that will still be missing no matter how much of these foods we consume. This may be in part, a contributing factor to the obesity epidemic since the appetite center will respond to a lack of essential nutrients in the same way that it does from a lack of calories. Both situations are seen by the body as “starvation”. This is why it is essential for those dieting to take a good Full Spectrum supplement every day. Watch my video Full Spectrum Nutrition and Multi-Vitamins.

This is what is happening to our food every day:
Poor soil and a lack of micro trace elements
Mineral deficient plants cannot manufacture vitamins
Premature harvesting of food prevents vitamin formation
Cold storage of food slowly depletes nutrients
Over cooking of food leeches out what little nutrients might have remained. With our LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals you will be better prepared to combat these issues.

You can see by this process that by the time our food reaches our dinner table very little nutrients may remain. The best way to solve this problem is by supplementing the diet with a Full Spectrum supplement that provides the 100+ nutrients your body needs on a daily basis for optimal wellness. Check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

More Heartache for Heartburn Pills!

People who take antacids also known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are more likely to develop chronic kidney disease than those who don’t use these drugs. Since tens of millions of people are using PPI’s it is a potentially serious problem. These drugs stop cells in the stomach lining from producing acid. Unfortunately the body requires this acid for the digestion of proteins and the formation of enzymes.

Earlier studies have established that PPI’s cause kidney damage, heart problems, infections, and bone fractures due to the lack of mineral absorption, which can only take place in an acid environment.

A better approach for most people would be to actually increase stomach acid production so that protein foods can be faster and more completely digested. It is undigested food that sits in a low acid stomach that causes regurgitation and reflux. Increasing stomach acid is as easy as using a multi-faceted digestive aid with natural betaine hydrochloride, which when present, stimulates the stomach to produce more gastric acid to accelerate digestion.

I have used our digestive support formula for over 30+ years and have helped thousands of people eliminate their digestive reflux issues as it restores the natural acid production of the stomach while providing the necessary building blocks so that the body can make all the essential enzymes for complete digestion.

This same formula is offered through Phoenix Nutritionals. They call it DigestEze and you may obtain it by calling them at 1-800-440-2390. Check back soon for more information about digestive disorders and how you can be free from them.

More Damning News for Sugary Sodas

Recent studies now show that sugary soft drinks increase internal fat around major organs. This form of weight gain is among the most dangerous. People who consume these soft drinks have as much as 27 percent more visceral fat than those who never or rarely drink them.

The study looked at more than 1000 volunteers and after 6 years data was compiled and the results were not good. Those who drank these soft drinks gained over 850 cubic centimeters more visceral fat than the control group!!

When you combine this with all the other problems connected with a high sugar intake maybe these drinks just aren’t worth it.

If you are serious about reducing the amount of refined sugar and other carbohydrate foods and you are finding that cravings can get in the way, you may wish to try our Blood Sugar Support formula. This formula is designed to help the body manage cravings for starch and sugary foods. We use it with almost all our weight loss clients and it is VERY helpful in reducing the cravings for these foods. Come back soon for more easy weight loss ideas.

Do I Need A Dietary Supplement While I Am Dieting?

According to the U. S. Government, at least half of us are deficient in 50% of the minimum daily requirement of essential nutrients. This is due to consuming a diet of over-processed junk foods as well as other factors such as over-cooking, canning, freezing, drying, and the fact that our farmlands have been depleted in essential micro trace minerals from decades of non-replacement. In fact, according to investigations by the United States Congress, at least 80 percent of most chronic degenerative diseases could be prevented by simply getting regular exercise and taking a good, broad based, dietary supplement.

When we go on a diet to lose weight, both the amount and variety of foods we consume will be reduced or altered. It doesn’t really matter if you are on a low calorie, low fat, low carbohydrate, or a combination program, it should be apparent that you will be getting less food and less variety, which will mean less nutrients! For this reason we feel that it is absolutely essential to take a good Full Spectrum dietary supplement every day like LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals.

Other factors that can cause a loss of essential nutrients include increased fluid loss when dieting, nutrient loss through increased exercise, and nutrient loss through increased metabolism.

The end result of this is increased nutrient deficiency, which can, over time, lead to chronic disease or make existing health challenges worse. A direct side effect of nutrient deficiencies on your diet program will be an increase in appetite and food cravings and an eventual slowing of your resting metabolism. Watch my video Full Spectrum Nutrition and Multi-Vitamins for more information on this.

Here’s how it works. As your body becomes more and more nutrient deficient, this stimulates the appetite center of the brain to consume more food in an attempt to make up these nutrient deficits. Cravings for specific foods can also greatly increase as the body tries to meet micronutrient needs. If the body remains in a state of nutrient deficiency for too long, the internal biochemistry begins to change, perceiving the situation as malnutrition. Once this occurs, the body will start to slow the resting metabolic state, similar to what occurs during food deprivation. Between the two, it can make ongoing weight loss very difficult, if not impossible.

Remember that every day your body needs at least 100 nutrients. These include 3 fatty acids, 16 vitamins, 70+major and trace minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. If any of these are significantly deficient, it can affect the way the body uses all the others. The best way to prevent these problems, especially when dieting, is to take a Full Spectrum Supplement every day like LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals. The best source of nutrient intake is in a liquid form, which helps to ensure maximum absorption to the cells of the body. Do yourself a favor and increase the success of your weight management program by taking a Full Spectrum Supplement every day and check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

Exercise and Heart Health

This seems like a given right? Yet millions of people do not get even a minimal amount of exercise on a regular basis. Your heart is a muscle and as such requires training to remain fit and healthy. Cardiovascular exercise is especially important for healthy hearts. In the 1970”s I was fanatically into bodybuilding and power lifting. My training consisted of two hours in the gym 6 days a week lifting heavy weight. After a year of this my blood pressure went through the roof because I didn’t balance the resistance exercise with endurance or cardio training. Once I took to jogging 4 miles 3 days a week my blood pressure problems vanished. The human body requires balance and when we pursue extremes such as total inactivity or one form of exercise over another, we can upset the delicate balance internally and go beyond what our bodies can adjust and compensate for.

The ideal exercise routine for a healthy heart would be resistance or weight training 3 days a week and cardio or endurance activities such as jogging, running, swimming, cycling, etc 3 days a week as well. By following this schedule you will provide your body with the level of activities that it was intended to receive and it will thank you for it many times over!!

Exercise need not be burdensome. The key is finding an activity that you enjoy and do it with the idea that it is good for your body. To exercise because you have to, is a negative mindset and not good for your wellness. By choosing activities that you enjoy your positive mental energy will enhance the benefits of the exercise many times over.

Cholesterol and Heart Disease

The connection between heart disease and cholesterol is one of the biggest myths in medicine. The fact is that there has never been one clinical study to link cholesterol levels as a cause of heart disease – yet everyone “believes” it. The real cause of atherosclerosis or the narrowing of the arteries due to plaque buildup is a molecule called the free radical. These chemical bombs are created when cross linkage of specific substances occur. In the case of heart disease and arterial blockage the main source of free radicals comes from rancid vegetable oils!! These are the oils we have been told for decades are good for us. In fact the greatest rise in heart disease due to blockages has occurred ever since the food industry has pushed cheap refined unsaturated fats on all of us.

Cholesterol is the single most important substance in the body and is involved in the structure and function of hundreds of processes. So important is cholesterol to your wellness that nature has designed that the bulk of necessary cholesterol is actually made in the liver so there will always be a sufficient supply to meet needs.

When serum cholesterol rises too high it is a sign of a liver problem. In order to safely lower cholesterol liver function must be addressed since it is the liver that is producing cholesterol in the first place. Statin drugs damage the liver and prevent it from producing as much cholesterol. The problem is that the liver carries out thousands of other functions and many of those can be affected by statin drugs as well. The side effects of stain drugs over time can be very serious. Every effort should be made to avoid them. The, good news is that there are several natural nutrients that can support the liver and help it to regulate your cholesterol production naturally. You can learn more about these key nutrients in my video Cholesterol Management. Check back next month for more information about Cardio Vascular Support Supplements and Nutrition Awareness Month.

March is Nutrition Awareness Month

March is Nutrition Awareness Month and in spite of living in a country of abundance many people are seriously deficient in vitamins and minerals simply because the diet does not supply them in optimal quantities anymore. This is due to a variety of factors beginning with a depletion of trace minerals in our farmlands then premature harvesting, cold storage, and food preparations including drying, over cooking, and the addition of food additives.

It is estimated that at least 50% of us do not ingest even 50% of many of the essential nutrients needed for optimal wellness. This over time, can lead to chronic degenerative diseases because the body does not have the raw materials to build and repair itself. Our immune system then begins to suffer and we find ourselves getting sick much more often than we should. The sad thing is that this problem is so easily fixed. By taking a Full Spectrum multi supplement every day you can ensure that your body will have the nutrients necessary to take care of you.

It is important to choose a supplement that is bio-available, highly absorbed, and provides enough potency to do the job. We have developed two such supplements that have an absorption rate of over 85%. One is in liquid form and the other in a micro thin veggie capsule.

LiquiDaily High Vitality & Liquid Essential Minerals – This liquid delivery supplement provides over 130 nutrients to the body including vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, fatty acids, and phytonutrients. It’s easy to take – just one ounce once a day with the first meal of the day and you are set to go!

Full Spectrum Caps – This is our capsule version and it too, provides the Full Range of known nutrients to the body. These formulas provide true “Health Insurance” to the body, supporting thousands of biochemical activities internally. Check back soon for more information on Nutrition Awareness Month.

The REAL Cause of Heart Disease

There is so much misinformation about heart disease everywhere, from the internet to your own doctor. After decades of research and treatment options more people die of heart disease today than any other single cause. Why? Well the answer is a simple one; that being medicine is looking to manage heart disease rather than prevent it.

There is copious research to illustrate the real causes of heart disease, namely atherosclerosis, yet medicine clings to its old paradigms of cholesterol and saturated fats. We have driven dangerously down the cholesterol levels of millions of people with the horrible drugs called statins. We have forcibly changed the diets of millions from natural saturated fats to rancid vegetable oils and yet heart disease remains the number one killer.

It is these pseudo science concepts that we refuse to give up that keep millions on the pathway to heart disease and premature death. To find out the facts about heart disease and what you can do to prevent it download my special report Heart Disease, The Real Cause, The Real Answer, and check back next week for more information on Cardio Vascular Support Supplements.

Are Fats good for your Heart Health?

There is a great deal of misinformation about the role of fats in the diet and which fats are actually best. In essence, what we have been told about fats for the past 50 years has been essentially wrong. We are told that vegetable oils the light polyunsaturated oils are the best.

These are the number one source for the free radicals that cause arterial blockages! We are told that saturated fats such as animal fats are terrible and are at the root of heart disease. The fact is that saturated fats such as animal fats, butter, lard, coconut oil, and palm oil are ideal for human consumption. They do not form free radicals nor do they oxidize and become rancid easily. We have been using a formula called Heart Wisdom from Phoenix Nutritionals and have found it to be very successful in the support of cardiovascular health, you can also see the clinical references for Heart Wisdom here.

To make matters worse what rancid vegetable oils do to damage your cardiovascular system margarine does twice as bad! Margarine is actually one step away from plastic. There isn’t an animal alive that will eat the stuff. It’s funny how the food industry has been able to convince us that artificial is better than what nature created. Hydrogenated oils are among the worst substances, next to sugar, in our diet. The worst is that the food industry has found ways to solidify liquid vegetable oils into solid margarine by a slightly different method than classic hydrogenation, therefore they can legally say that their product contains “no hydrogenated fats”. The processes they are now using however are not any better for your heart health or your arterial wellness. Please download my special report Heart Disease, The Real Cause, The Real Answer also take my FREE Heart Health Quiz.

Take a minute to watch my video Heart Disease & Oral Chelation and watch my video about Understanding Fats I think you will find them eye opening to say the least. Check back soon for more information on Cardio Vascular Support Supplements and how they can help you.

Antacids Linked to Dementia!

I have been warning about the many dangers of antacids for decades. These dangers include kidney disease, increased bone fractures, low magnesium levels, gastrointestinal infections, and pneumonia. Now we can add another danger to these worthless drugs: Dementia.

Large clinical study analysis shows that those taking these drugs have a whopping 44% greater chance of developing dementia later in life. This is likely because certain compounds of these drugs cross the blood brain barrier and alter brain enzymes. Further these drugs can cause a serious deficiency of vitamin B12, the nerve vitamin.

The sad part of all this is that in 90% or more of the cases, these drugs are not necessary at all; your upper digestive system is designed to be very acidic. The stomach must be acidic to do its job of protein digestion, fat emulsification, and enzyme formation. Only when the stomach can no longer produce adequate stomach acids does heartburn and acid reflux develop.

The way to solve these problems is to INCREASE stomach acid not decrease it.

In addition to protein digestion minerals such as calcium and magnesium can only be absorbed in an acid environment. When stomach acid is destroyed by these drugs most of these minerals pass through the system without being absorbed.

We have all seen the ads for these drugs, known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). They include Prevacid, Nexium, and Prilosec. What you don’t likely know is that all these drugs, which appear to be in competition with each other, are made by the same drug company!!!

In essence AstraZeneca is in competition with itself and they don’t care which one you buy.

A safe and beneficial alternative to these highly dangerous drugs would be a full spectrum digestive support formula that helps increase natural stomach acid while providing the raw materials necessary for the body to manufacture digestive enzymes. We use a combination formula that provides all this support in one. It’s being sold as Digest-Eze and you can call them at 1-800-440-2390. We recommend this along with our Full Spectrum Multi formula called High Vitality, also available from Phoenix Nutritionals. Check back soon for more information about Heart Disease Month and how you can keep your Heart healthy. Should you have any questions you can reach our office at 1-888-454-8464

For more information on how to avoid these dangers and properly support your digestive system watch my video Indigestion, Heartburn, and Acid Reflux.

Managing High Blood Pressure

Hypertension or high blood pressure is a serious problem. Over time it can damage not only your cardiovascular system and your heart but also organs like your kidneys. There are many potential causes for hypertension from diet, lack of exercise, to genetics. Certainly obesity and inactivity can contribute to high blood pressure but sometimes even the most fit individual can have raging hypertension. In these cases it is clearly genetic.

No matter the cause it is important to manage this problem effectively and quickly. This is one instance where medication may be far more valuable than the potential side effects. In the case of genetics medication is almost always required since fitness and diet will play a very insignificant role in these people. For everyone else the big three – diet, exercise, and supplements may help to naturally control blood pressure.

Diet – Reduce or eliminate all polyunsaturated vegetable oils as these are the cause of free radical damage to the arteries, setting up an environment for plaque buildup. Once this occurs, the narrow arteries build up pressure to drive blood flow through the reduced pathway. Consume more whole grains and natural foods such as fruits and veggies. Get adequate protein daily – about 80 grams or more, and this will help.

Exercise – Obesity is a factor behind dozens of health problems and high blood pressure is one of them. The single greatest physical cause of blood pressure problems is obesity. If you are more than 20 pounds overweight you need to address that issue head on. To find out the best diet program for your body take our Weight Management Test.

Supplements – An imbalance of specific minerals called electrolytes can induce hypertension over time. Two of the most important electrolyte minerals involved in this process are sodium and potassium in order for these minerals to help regulate blood pressure you need a 3 to 1 ratio of potassium to sodium. The standard American Diet (SAD) provides just the opposite! By increasing potassium from fruits and veggies and reducing added sodium we can address this issue. Magnesium is another mineral that plays a role in blood pressure. Magnesium must be balanced with calcium for optimal functioning. We need about 2 to 1 calcium over magnesium. The problem is that most of us are calcium and magnesium deficient. The best way to deal with these potential mineral imbalances is to take a supplement that provides all of them in the right ratios to each other. Check out our Bio-complete Calcium Formula, which addresses these ratios.

Weight Loss Time Need Not Be Difficult!

Millions of people are trying to lose weight during this time of the year. Most of them will struggle with this process like every time and eventually give up. Nutritional science has discovered two major reasons why people have such a difficult time losing those extra pounds. Firstly, excess toxins. If your digestive system is toxic this can inhibit healthy metabolism of foods, resulting in fluid retention and a slowing of weight loss. Secondly, many people who need to lose weight don’t or can’t exercise enough. This results in a sluggish metabolism. We have identified several natural nutrients that can increase resting metabolism. We have combined these two concepts into one formula that addresses these issues, making weight loss much easier.

You can get this formula from Phoenix Nutritionals. It’s called Slim Cleanse. Call them at 1-800-440-2390.

Should you have any technical questions about this formula call me: 1-888-454-8464.

February is Heart Disease Month

February is Heart Disease month, and in spite of all the medical advancements in cardiovascular research heart disease remains the number one killer in most industrialized nations. This is primarily because medicine is looking to “manage” heart disease rather than address the causes. The biggest factor is blocked arteries. For decades cholesterol has been blamed for the blockages but in truth while excess cholesterol in the wrong form may contribute to the problem in the advanced stages cholesterol does NOT actually cause Heart Disease!! This process is a long chain of events that lead up to the blocking of arterial blood flow. In order to address the cause of this problem many key nutrients are needed. Check out my video Heart Disease & Oral Chelation

Heart Wisdom – is the cardiovascular support formula we developed here at our Research Institute. It addresses this support in a variety of ways. The formula contains nutrients, which have been shown to help keep the arteries flexible while providing other key nutrients that help the body to naturally remove plaque buildup along the artery walls. This formula may be used as a multi supplement on an ongoing basis for those who may be at greater risk or it can be used for 6 months on and off for prevention and check back soon for more information about Heart Disease Month.

Reasons to Lose That Weight!

Still need reasons to Lose That Weight? Well, there are numerous complications and chronic conditions that can develop when one is overweight or obese – many of these can shorten your life and reduce the quality of life.

Sleep Apnea- Clues that you have this problem include chronic daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, memory impairment, falling asleep while working or driving, depression, and cardiovascular disease. Almost all those who suffer from sleep apnea are significantly overweight.

Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome – This occurs almost exclusively in obese individuals and causes a lack of oxygen to the internal system of the body. Those significantly overweight cannot breathe deeply enough to meet the oxygen needs of their bodies and as a result they often have high levels of carbon dioxide in the blood. People with this issue often use our liquid oxygen supplement to help meet oxygen needs I discuss this product at length in my video eliminating yeast infections and candida.

Diabetes – This is a no brainer but obesity is the number 1 risk factor for type II diabetes. If you suspect you have a weight problem please take our Weight Management Survey it can help us identify your problem areas. This occurs through a process called insulin resistance where glucose is stored because of excess insulin rather than being used for energy. You can support better insulin management with nutrients such as chromium, vanadium, aspartic acid, and others. These can be found in the right ratios in our support formula. It’s called GlucoCrave Xtreme and is being offered exclusively by Phoenix Nutritionals you can also print my new Diabetic food list. Used along with Slim Cleanse, this can be a winning combination to reach your weight-loss goals easier and a little quicker.

Obesity and Cancer – According to the National Cancer Institute obesity greatly increases your risk for cancers of the breast, colon, esophagus, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, and thyroid. This is likely due to a variety of factors but most obvious is the negative effect excess body fat has on the metabolism and the immune system. Further fat cells have high amounts of estrogen, which may also explain increased risks.

Other complications of obesity include: cardiovascular problems, chronic back pain, fatty liver disease, gallbladder disease, acid reflux disease, osteoarthritis, periodontitis, pulmonary hypertension, skin problems including inflammation and infections, and increased physical stress.

This should be enough reason to get your weight under control. By using the right diet program for your metabolism as well as key nutrient supplements to support your issues such as insulin resistance and excess physical and emotional stress, you can get your weight under control and keep it there for good, be sure to check back soon for more reasons to lose weight.
