Osteoporosis

Calcium deficiency is very common among people over the age of 50. Calcium is one of the most difficult minerals for the body to absorb, leading to osteoporosis and bone fractures.

Most Asked Health Questions

Why is losing weight so much harder than gaining it?

Well, we gain weight through self-abuse and we fail to lose weight through genuine ignorance. Weight management is a science just like many other things. It is necessary for you to understand how your body utilizes foods, how it stores energy, and how to balance stored energy with usable energy. For the best results and greatest long-term success find a cutting edge institution that can design a weight management program for you without the old paradigms that have failed for decades.

What should someone look for when buying a multivitamin mineral formula?

To make it simple, your body requires at least 100 nutrients on a daily basis for optimal wellness. These include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, amino acids, and key plant extracts. It can be difficult to find a single formula that provides all of these nutrient groups. This concept we call full-spectrum nutrition. We are pioneers in this concept as far back as 1991 and have made full-spectrum formulas for a variety of companies over the years that meet these specifications. By doing so, we not only ensure that all the nutrients the body needs are present but we can do so in a convenient and economical manner. By putting all these nutrients into one supplement it avoids the cost and inconvenience of having to take multiple formulas in order to achieve full-spectrum nutrition.

Which nutrients are the best for someone with type II diabetes?

Of course when we think of diabetes we almost instantly think of chromium due to its effect on blood sugar and insulin. While chromium is very effective, there are other nutrients that belong or should belong to this family as well. These include the trace mineral vanadium, cinnamon extract, and aspartic acid, to name a few. By utilizing these known nutrients in the right combinations and ratios we can enhance the benefit, far exceeding the use of single nutrients alone.

What role do nutrients play in regulating cholesterol?

Everything! Cholesterol, or the majority of it, is manufactured by your body in the liver. Because of this, addressing liver function and liver wellness is essential. Dietary changes most often have a minimal effect on total cholesterol levels. This is because the less cholesterol forming foods you consume the more your liver tends to manufacture. The goal is to retrain the liver so it manufactures adequate cholesterol for bodily functions but not to excess.

Why do dietitians insist that we can get all our nutrients from our diet?

I have no idea why they continue to say that. Repeated analysis by such organizations as the national institutes of health have shown that the standard American diet provides less than 50% of the majority of essential nutrients that we need for optimal wellness. We have destroyed the nutrient food chain, which began with the depletion of our farmland soils, eliminating most of the micro trace elements necessary for plant health. This in turn created deficiencies in the animals that consumed these products. The chain then went all the way up to humans. When you add long-term storage, over processing, overheating, and chemical additives, the results have been devastating.

Is there something that can be done four persistent digestive problems?

Digestive disorders, which can include feelings of fullness, belching, burping, heartburn, and even acid reflux, are most often the result of a in balance in the pH of the digestive system. This can often be easily addressed through the use of a multifaceted digestive support formula, which provides enzymes or enzyme precursor agents as well as natural acids to rebalance the pH of the digestive system, allowing natural, healthy digestion to take place once again.

Can arthritis because by a lack of nutrients?

Common osteoarthritis is almost 100% nutrient deficiency related. Arthritis in a joint begins by the breakdown of cartilage tissue, which is not being sufficiently rebuilt. The body needs several nutrients in order to ensure that cartilage tissue, worn down through years of activity, can continue to be replaced at the rate in which it is required. We know that there are several nutrients that can be helpful in this process. They include glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, as well as several key minerals such as calcium and magnesium. By combining these and other key nutrients the progression of arthritic situations can often be halted, slowed, or even reversed.

How do I choose the best multivitamin supplement?

We feel that for a baseline full-spectrum multi supplement it should be, in some form in a liquid delivery system. This would include liquid supplements as well as liquid gel capsules, which can provide the absorption of the liquid and the convenience of a capsule. Next, it is important to ensure that the supplement provides all of the necessary nutrients to the body. There are at least 100, and perhaps more, nutrients that have been identified as being essential to the living system of the body. Not all supplement products have been created equally, so it’s wise to read labels and to consult professionals.

When is the best time to take dietary supplements?

For the most part, with a few exceptions, all dietary supplements should be taken with meals. Since absorption is the first key to nutrient benefit, taking your supplements with food at mealtime helps to ensure that the body’s digestive system is in the best possible position for uptake and absorption. Also by using supplements that are in micro thin capsules or in liquid suspension we can further address the absorption issue. Unless you’re supplement specifically indicates that it should be taken on an empty stomach, you should always take your supplements with meals.

What are the best sources for mineral supplements?

Major minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and others are best supplemented if they have been processed through chelation. Chelating minerals, usually with an acid, helps to increase their absorption and uptake to the tissues of the body. Trace minerals and micro trace minerals are best absorbed from plant sources. There are several plant derived mineral supplements, mostly in liquid form, that meet this requirement. By using plant source to trace minerals you can help ensure not only absorption but greatly reducing the risk of toxicity since the body knows how to handle organic compounds as opposed to heavy metals.

What are High potency liquid vitamins?

When we talk about my concept of full-spectrum nutrition we must also discuss how we’re going to accomplish that. I originally claimed that phrase nearly 30 years ago after I finished my research on the relationship between one nutrient and another. I found that full-spectrum nutrition had to include at least 100 nutrients because of their relationship to each other and their functions. For example, vitamins must have key trace minerals present at the same time in order to achieve their own biological function. In turn, minerals are interrelated and cannot do their job unless others are present. This is true with a great many nutrients and as such fragmented nutrition is far less effective and beneficial. When deciding on how to deliver these many nutrients to the living system of the body we experimented with several delivery systems, including powders, tablets, and capsules. We ultimately settled on liquid for the perfect delivery system. Because of the chemistry involved, high potency liquid vitamins were the answer. The freedom we had to expand both the number of nutrients and their potency was much higher in a liquid suspension. We were finally able to achieve full-spectrum nutrition by using high potency liquid vitamins. Because of the flexibility this formula turned out to be the best supplement for men and the best supplement for women because we can include all the specifics for each. Our full-spectrum nutrition concept has evolved over the years in totality, taste, and consistency. Today’s formulation represents the latest evolution in high potency liquid vitamins. Because we can deliver all the baseline nutrients in one formula the cost and convenience are also there. A single product is far more economical, as well as being convenient to use. I am pleased that Phoenix nutritionals has decided to put this concept into their product line. I invite you to take a look and see what true full-spectrum nutrition is all about.

What is the most powerful full-spectrum multivitamin supplement available?

When looking for a baseline full-spectrum formula it’s essential that you read labels. High vitality liquid full-spectrum vitamin provides over 136 nutrients to the living system of the body in an easy to take highly absorbable delivery system.

What nutrients are good for the cold and flu season?

Nutritional science has identified several key nutrients that have shown an immune boosting effect. These include but are not limited to beta glucagon, mushroom extracts, and many herbal derivatives. If you get more than one cold or the flu every few years your immune system may be crying for help. Consider using our immune support formula

What are the nutrients most needed for vegetarians and vegans?

It is difficult for vegetarians and vegans to get adequate amounts of whole protein. This is because most vegetable proteins are what we call incomplete in their amino acids. Further, nutrients like the B complex especially vitamin B12, vitamin D, and to a lesser extent vitamin A are often found to be deficient in these individuals. Taking a full-spectrum dietary supplement will help to ensure that their nutrient intake is fully balanced.

What are the key nutrients for accelerating healing in the body?

The acceleration of healing especially from injuries caused by sprains and other physical and or athletic activities can be accomplished through the use of organic anionic colloidal plant derived trace minerals. These minerals have been shown, due to their bioelectrical activity, to accelerate the healing of bones and connective tissues. Studies done with professional athletes have shown that these minerals can reduce healing time by as much as 40%.

Nutritional science has identified several key nutrients that have shown an immune boosting effect. These include but are not limited to beta glucagon, mushroom extracts, and many herbal derivatives. If you get more than one cold or the flu every few years your immune system may be crying for help.

What is a better alternative to high energy drinks?

For quite some time now the so-called energy drinks have been all the rage. In fact, they have become so popular and so successful that they sponsor many activities and events around the country. Unfortunately, many of the events they sponsor are primarily geared toward younger people. It seems that every so often a new energy drink hits the market even more super and more powerful than the ones before. The monster drinks, red bulls, full throttle, and of course the five hour energy drink in those cute little bottles in every convenience store, are peddled with great aggressiveness. These drinks are not as innocuous as they may seem on the surface. The high amounts of caffeine combined with sugar can, for some, be a dangerous combination. Some of the side effects of excessive caffeine include dehydration, nervousness, and sleep disturbances. Inability to focus and concentrate can also be a problem. So why are these drinks so popular? Everyone wants more energy and the reason for that is that we are living a life and a lifestyle that depletes our energy at many levels and instead of addressing the causes of energy depletion we look for quick fixes to boost our stamina. The primary cause behind a lack of energy is a loss of key nutrients due to the standard American diet and its inability to provide even baseline nutrition. By supplementing the diet with a full-spectrum supplement we not only can get natural increases in energy, but we can address the causes of loss of energy at the same time. There are many full-spectrum or pseudo full-spectrum formulas on the market. The one that we have had the best success with is in a liquid form and developed by us about 15 years ago. It is currently being offered through a company in California called Phoenix nutritionals. I invite you to take a look at this amazing formulation and compare it to anything else you may be taking at the present time. You will find that almost nothing on the market comes even close to completeness, totality, and potency. Also, because it’s in a liquid form it enters the bloodstream very quickly and the body is able to direct those nutrients in the proper places where they need to be.

What is the difference between Starvation and weight loss?

Since we are individuals who most often seek immediate gratification and immediate results for anything we undertake, this can have devastating results when it comes to dieting. For most of us and for most things that we enjoy or crave our thought process is wired to think if a little’s good more is better. When it comes to weight loss, we seem to apply this principle but in the reverse meaning if a little is good less would be better. Nothing could be further from the truth. For individuals who choose to follow the low-calorie concept for weight loss starvation is a real potential problem. When we consume too few calories for too long a period of time the body sees this situation as a form of starvation. This comes from our genetic ancestors who did not have wide varieties of over-processed junk food available 24 hours a day. Instead, they had long periods, depending on where they lived, with little or no food. Over time, the body chemistry began to adapt to this situation and automatically slowed metabolism to almost hibernation during the long fasting winter months. This ability allowed many to survive the long winters of famine who might otherwise have perished. Even though we share this genetic ability today it is rarely if ever necessary. When we go on a low-calorie diet if the calories dip too low for too long the body will see that as an impending famine and will began to slow your metabolism. This is not a situation that someone wishing to lose weight can use. Often times when we plateau it is due to starvation hormone activity. Instead of increasing calories temporarily we often reduce calories further and further, inducing weight loss but ultimately creating greater states of starvation internally. Each time this occurs your body chemistry slows its metabolism for longer periods of time. When you finally began to eat again in a more normal manner the body will see this as the end of the famine and will began to pack on excess energy in the form of body fat in preparation for the next famine that might occur. This concept explains why calorie dieters often regain their lost weight and more every time they go through this process because the body is trying to create a greater storehouse of energy that will last through a longer famine. There is a right way and a wrong way to use calories for weight loss. The first thing that you should do is to determine what body type you are because the majority of overweight people and virtually all obese people are not calorie sensitive at all but rather carbohydrate intolerant. This means that they have elevated insulin levels in their system almost constantly, which is preventing them from accessing stored body fat for fuel. Before you consider a weight loss program you should arm yourself with knowledge about how your body handles foods. Doing so will increase your chances of being ultimately successful in the safest and shortest period of time possible. You can take our no-cost weight management evaluation on our research.

What is Chromium?

In this season of weight loss more people than at any other time began to take up the gauntlet to lose weight once again. Year after year millions of people attempt to do this and yet a very small percentage actually succeed. There are many reasons for this, but noncompliance is probably one of them at the top of the list. We grow weary of what seems to be like endless dieting, having to avoid the foods that we most enjoy. One of the greatest pitfalls for the dieter are the often-constant cravings, especially for starch and sugary foods. These can be so intense that it can cripple the dieter and force them to go for the sugary foods and starchy carbohydrates over and over again. As a biochemist I can assure you that there are several nutrients which can help control and even in eradicate these intense cravings. At the heart of this nutrient group is a trace mineral called chromium. This trace mineral has been called the glucose sparing nutrient, which means that he can help modulate blood sugar, avoiding spikes and falls. By combining chromium with other nutrients such as vanadium, and aspartic acid, we can intensify this beneficial effect by also addressing insulin levels in the bloodstream. When starchy and sugary foods are consumed your body produces insulin in response. For many people this response is controlled and produces relatively little side effect. For many others however, the end result of constant insulin stimulation is overweight and obesity because the primary function of insulin is to remove blood sugar and convert it to a fat called triglycerides, which are ultimately stored in your fat cells. Since there is no regulatory process for this, the condition can continue indefinitely, producing massively overweight and obese individuals. Controlling cravings is just one factor of supporting those who need to lose weight, but if we can also help the body to control excessive insulin production, we can increase insulin receptor site function, lowering insulin naturally. The end result of controlled insulin production is an increase in the mobilization of energy from fat cells. This can be one of the shortest and most permanent pathways to weight loss. We have used a specialized formula containing these nutrients and several others not only to assist those wishing to shed weight but also for the many type II diabetics whose primary cause of their disorder is rampant excessive insulin production. By controlling this insulin production, we can drop the diabetics blood sugar within the normal range without the need for other interferences.

Digestive Problems Symptoms

Problems with Digestion or Digestive Problems Symptoms can be many and is the single most reported annoyance in the vast majority of people. Since May was digestion awareness month, it is a good time to discuss ways to prevent and even reverse many common digestive problems. Issues like indigestion and acid reflux are almost invariably caused by a lack of stomach acid not an excess. By neutralizing what little stomach acid is present through antacids, we can bring about relief but ultimately set ourselves up for a wider variety of issues such as mineral depletion, bone loss, and premature aging. A far better way to address these digestive problems is with a multipurpose broad-spectrum digestive enzyme supplement. Digestive aids are quite popular and can oftentimes work as well or better than antacid preparations without the long-term side effects. Symptoms of early indigestion often include bloating, belching, burping, and feelings of fullness. These are indications that food is remaining in the stomach too long and is fermenting. By increasing natural stomach acids, the digestive process in the stomach is accelerated and the majority of these annoying symptoms may be prevented. The best digestive enzymes would also include precursor agents to assist the body in the manufacture of enzymes to digest proteins, fats, as well is carbohydrates. Even when digestive disturbances have advanced to the point where someone is suffering from acid reflux a good maximum digestive enzyme formula can often eliminate that problem in a very short period of time. Our broad-spectrum digestive support formula provides all of these factors in one convenient supplement, making it the best maximum digestive enzyme supplement currently available.

National Arthritis Awareness Month 2019

It’s National Arthritis Awareness Month 2019 time to make people aware of their options for both preventing and managing arthritic conditions. It is important to address arthritic conditions as early on as possible since much of the damage done to joint and connective tissue from this disorder is often irreversible.

Listen to my Arthritis Podcast Below:

There are a variety of joint support nutrients such as glucosamine and chondroitin, which can help to rebuild cartilage tissue in compromised areas. A good joint supplement should also provide nutrients for connective tissue as this is often an issue as well. Much of the pain from arthritis comes from inflammation, therefore it is important to also address this with proven natural anti-inflammatory nutrients. The best supplements for joints therefore would be as broad spectrum as possible, providing raw materials to assist the body in rebuilding cartilage tissue, while also addressing the inflammatory response. Here at our Institute we have done a great deal of research into both arthritic issues as well as inflammation and we have an ideal system to address both of these factors naturally, which has provided hundreds and hundreds of people with joint pain relief as well as an increased ability to rebuild cartilage tissue. Check back next week for more information about arthritis and silent inflammation.

What Chiropractors Treat

We have many chiropractors who use and swear by our Natural Anti-Inflammatory Support Formula, it is what chiropractors use for most patients. This formula is so powerful that it can aid the body in controlling inflammation at various levels.

Since chiropractors work with individuals who almost universally have an inflammatory problem, it’s no wonder that they are excited about this formula. This formula contains natural supportive nutrients from a wide variety of sources making it an ideal targeted formula for those wishing to provide inflammation support.

As chiropractors began to discover the multitude of benefits from this formula they recommend it for an increasing number of their patients. We have many clients who have used this formula successfully for years, and our recently reformulated product is proving to be even more effective.

Those with stiff achy joints, arthritis, and other inflammatory issues are receiving enhanced benefits. Silent inflammation, that’s inflammation that cannot be felt, can often be more damaging because it goes on without the individual being aware of it. Our Natural Anti-Inflammatory Support is beneficial for those individuals as well.

Dr. Oz and Magnesium

Recently on the Dr Oz show there was an extensive discussion of the mineral magnesium. As most nutritionists know, magnesium is a key major mineral for health and well-being within the human body. It is responsible for a host of activities at many levels. Some of the many things discussed on the program were magnesium’s role in such disorders as diabetes as well as its role in better and deeper sleep. Magnesium plays a key role not only at the biochemical level but also on a larger scale due to its relationship with other major minerals such as calcium, potassium, and others.

Supplements to support better management of diabetes should also include the mineral magnesium as well as the mineral calcium. It has long been known that a glass of warm milk before bed can help bring a more restful sleep. This is because of the higher amounts of calcium and magnesium found in dairy milk. Today we know we can get the same benefit without the lactose and the calories by taking a supplement that provides calcium and magnesium. The best magnesium supplements would also include calcium. When we consider the use of these major minerals in increasing bone density and preventing bone loss the proper ratio of calcium to magnesium to potassium is essential. Therefore, the best calcium supplements would also include the other two key minerals as well as trace elements, which have proven to increase bone density and prevent bone loss. These would include manganese, copper zinc, boron, and especially strontium. By including all of these elements in one balanced chelated bio-available formula we can attain many potential benefits including better bone density, better sleep, diabetes support, and a greater balance of the key electrolytes necessary for the body’s bio-electrical system.

Acid Reflux Remedies

It has long been recognized that Health and wellness begins with good digestion but millions suffer from digestive disturbances. To make the matter worse, the over use and abuse of antacids has compounded the problem, leading to protein deficiency and mineral depletion. If you suffer from digestive disorders such as gas, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, or acid reflux these are almost universally signs of a lack of natural stomach acid not an excess!

When the acid in the stomach declines enzymes, necessary for the digestion of other foods become affected. By using a natural digestive support formula, we can restore the stomach’s natural healthy acid and increase the production of enzymes for all food breakdown. Our digestive formula is a broad spectrum formula, addressing all the digestive issues.

Once your digestion has been addressed you then need to take a Full Spectrum supplement that will provide the 100+ nutrients your body needs. Our Liquid High Vitality meets and exceeds those needs with over 130 nutrients per 1 ounce serving. This formula is both convenient and economical to use.

How to Choose a Calcium Supplement

You may have heard about the concerns over taking calcium supplements and their buildup in the body. This only occurs when the wrong form of calcium is ingested. In order for calcium to be absorbed and not stored it must firstly be acidic with a pH of 5.0 or lower. Next the best calcium supplement will also have the known trace minerals for absorption and transport throughout the body. These should include boron, manganese, copper, zinc, and strontium. There should also be some magnesium as this is not only an essential mineral but compliments calcium in the body.

The best calcium supplement and the best magnesium supplement would include both in a 2 to 1 ratio, calcium/magnesium. If all of these factors are present clinical studies have shown that this is the best calcium for osteoporosis because of the transport of calcium specifically back to the bone. The calcium supplement we developed has been shown to not only halt bone loss but to actually increase bone density. Of course we would also want to chelate the calcium and magnesium to lower the pH, thereby further enhancing absorption. Check back next month for more info on magnesium supplements and how to choose the right one for you.

Colloidal Minerals Supplement

Ionic colloidal minerals derived from plant sources, are the oldest dietary supplements sold, dating back to the 1920’s. These micro trace minerals have many potential benefits to the body, one of which is their ability to accelerate healing of injuries. Early experiments at the University of New York demonstrated that by passing a specific electrical current through injured tissues, their repair was accelerated. Ionic, plant-sourced minerals bear this same electrical charge and because of their small particle size, can reach even the smallest cell structures and help support accelerated healing.

We first were able to demonstrate this ability with the legendary pro cyclist John Howard. An injury put him out of training for up to twelve weeks according to his doctors. We started him on very high doses of the ionic minerals and he was back training again in six weeks instead of twelve!! Since that time we have helped many dozens of athletes and weekend warriors to both prevent injuries and accelerate the healing of existing problems through the addition of these ionic plant based minerals.

The human body is an electrical organism that must generate an electrical charge constantly to power the brain, heart, and central nervous system. This charge comes from the interaction of electrolyte minerals. Many of these key trace minerals have been deficient in our diet for decades due to poor farming techniques. By replacing these elements in supplement form we can assist the body in re-establishing a stronger bio-electrical charge. When the soft tissues of the body are properly saturated with these minerals they are much more resistant to injuries. Because these plant based minerals are ionically charged, they also have the ability to accelerate faster healing via their effect on cell structures. Check back next month for info on colloidal trace minerals supplement.

Is Serovital-HGH safe to take?

Many of you have been asking about a product called Serovital-HGH. This is another in a long line of so called “HGH” formulas. HGH or Human Growth hormone, is a highly regulated pharmaceutical and these products contain NO Human Growth Hormone whatsoever. What the product does contain are a select group of amino acids that can promote production of HGH in some individuals. These companies market these product to imply that they actually contain HGH, which they don’t. The main use for these products is weight loss.

They can certainly help with this in some people but are not universally effective for everyone. The problem with these formulas and many other weight loss aides is what to do when you stop taking them? Most often the dieter gets a rebound effect and regains their lost weight and often even more. The product does not provide for the metabolic rebound effect that most people will experience.

The best plan for weight management would be one that takes into account each person’s metabolic chemistry and designs a plan around that. The so-called HGH diet that is often recommended is so dangerously low in calories that it will induce starvation hormone production very rapidly. Further, any weight loss program of value will have a solid maintenance program to help ensure that lost weight is not regained over and over again.

If you are truly ready to lose weight, click the link below to take my Weight Management Survey and I will call you with your results. Call me at 1-888-454-8464 for any questions. Check back next week when we will have a latest information on the best hair growth vitamins.

Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D Deficiency, too much of a good thing is rarely a good thing! A new study concerning the high doses of vitamin D being prescribed in the last decade or so verifies that these excessive doses are actually contributing to weaker bones, leading to increased fractures. I have often said that if a person lives long enough you get vindicated. Back in the 1970’ and 80’s I was recommending 600 to 800 IU of vitamin D for most women. At the time this was considered very excessive and I was criticized for “poisoning” people. At that time 400 IU was considered the upper safe limit.

In the last decade or so medical doctors have been prescribing upwards of 10,000 to even as much as 50,000 IUs of vitamin D weekly. Worse yet the vitamin D they use is the synthetic variety! Now we are beginning to see the negative effects of this extreme. Moderation is always the key when it comes to bodily wellness. I am still recommending the same amount of vitamin D today as I was 30+ years ago because that amount is based in sound science. Taking 400 IU of vitamin D will meet the needs of most people. In cases where therapeutic doses might be helpful I would go to 800 or perhaps even 1000 IU. Once again medicine is following their extreme philosophies and over-doing a good thing. If you have a medical condition by all means see a medical doctor but if you have a nutrition issue see a nutritionist, preferably one who embraces orthomolecular science. If you should have any questions you can always reach my office by phone at 1-888-454-8464. Please check back next week for information about the multivitamins for women.

High Vitality Capsules

As many of you who have followed my work over the years know, I always review all of our formulas at least once every year or two to ensure that you, the client, are receiving the very latest in nutritional science. In keeping with that concept, I have recently taken a look at our full-spectrum capsules and have discovered that while the formula is excellent it didn’t really quite represent a lot of the new thinking that’s out there as far as a multivitamin mineral supplement. One of the things that was missing from the old formula was the energy factors that I built into the high vitality liquid and I’ve often thought when the time comes to reformulate this product I would want to include those. The new high vitality capsules now contain those energy factors. All of the basics and all of the goodies are still there such as antioxidants, trace minerals, phytonutrients, etc. I have also added Saw Palmetto, which many might think is only for men. Not True! This nutrient has many benefits for women as well, including preventing bladder disorders, prevents hair loss, treats acne, and improves both menopause and PCOS symptoms. I think upon reviewing our new formulation you will find that it is even more complete in many ways than the one before. If you should have any questions about this new formula or any of the formulas we have developed you can always reach my office either by phone at 1-888-454-8464. Please check back next week for information about the best multivitamins for women.

What are the Symptoms of Osteoporosis & Bone Loss?

Since the month of May is also osteoporosis awareness, it is a great opportunity to discuss this condition and offer hope that there are natural ways of preventing bone loss. At the heart of osteoporosis of course is a lack of calcium. Medicine has several osteoporosis treatments through the use of pharmaceuticals, but most of these have potentially annoying and possibly serious side effects. It’s much better to nourish our bones so that they do not become honeycombed and brittle in the first place. While many professionals don’t fully agree on the cause of osteoporosis we can all agree that a lack of calcium or more importantly a lack of absorption of calcium is at the heart of the problem. When considering the best calcium supplements, absorption must be considered as well.

Calcium is an extremely difficult mineral to absorb; because of this the best calcium supplements will provide chelated calcium as well as chelated magnesium. To further enhance the absorption of these nutrients the supplement should also contain vitamin D. The best calcium for osteoporosis would also include trace minerals such as zinc, manganese, copper, and even strontium hydrochloride. The trace mineral strontium has been shown to increase the transport of calcium ions back to bone tissue up to 10 fold. Our current formula researched and developed here, is the only formula to have been clinically proven to not only stop bone loss but to actually increase bone density over time. We use a product called Bio Complete Calcium Plus. Please check out my video about the Best Calcium for Osteoporosis and check back next month for information about the toenail fungus.

Best Supplements for Joints

When it comes to joint support there are several things to consider. Glucosamine and chondroitin are pretty much given but there are many other co-factors that should make up the best joint supplement. In order to achieve total joint support we need to add key trace minerals, bicarbonates, and other factors. Doing so helps us to better address arthritis pain relief. In looking at the many supplements for arthritis, we can see many of them providing very high amounts of glucosamine and chondroitin because these are very difficult to absorb, but by adding the supportive factors to these we can increase the absorption rate and not overload the system with excessive amounts of glucosamine.

Like all supplements, vitamins for arthritis should be approached scientifically. Here at our Institute we do just that. When making a supplement we must consider potency of course but also ratio and totality of supportive nutrients. Our formula, offered through Phoenix Nutritionals, called Joint Flow, does exactly that. If you are looking for the best arthritis supplement to address both cartilage and connective tissue we feel that Joint Flow Capsules, The Best Supplements for Joints fit that requirement.

Should you have technical questions about the role of nutrients in joint health please call my office at 1-888-454-8464.

Let’s work together to make this year the year you conquer your weight issues and if you are diabetic, control your blood sugar at the same time! Check back next month for information about the Best Supplements for Joints.

Feel Younger & Looking Better

As we age many things don’t work quite as well as they did in the past. Joints stiffen and our bodies produce higher and higher amounts of inflammation, causing more stiffness and discomfort. Does aging need to be this way? No not at all.

Flexibility comes about from many factors: joints that are cushioned and well lubricated, inflammation that is kept safely under control, and ligaments that retain their elasticity. The reason why we tend to lose these things over time is due to ongoing nutrient deficiencies.

The body uses specific protein structures to rebuild cartilage tissue to keep joints moving freely. As we age we have a harder time to build those specific proteins. By ingesting raw materials that can provide those proteins we are able to support the body in maintaining healthy joints. Inflammation can of course be controlled with drugs but not without a price to pay over time. Fortunately there are natural nutrients and compounds that serve as safe anti-inflammatory agents with no side effects.

When you combine these factors together with a well-balanced Full Spectrum supplement for internal biochemistry, you can go far in preventing the stiffness and inflexibility often associated with aging.

Who wants to look and feel crippled at any age? By giving the body what it needs today you may just be able to avoid that situation in the future. We use a combination of formulas developed right here at The Institute: Full Spectrum High Vitality Liquid, Joint Flow for joint repair, and InflamEze to help naturally and safely control inflammation internally. This combination has helps thousands of people from the stiffness and loss of range of motion that can come with age.

Look your best by feeling your best!

Podcast from Dr Whiting

Obesity is a national epidemic. Diets come and go and most often fail. Why? There are several reasons for this but the biggest is the fact that we are different individuals and will not respond the same. Our new program will identify how each person’s body handles food. An outline of this upcoming Weight Management Revolution is covered in this podcast.

Watch for updates as this program develops right here on this channel. Check back next week for information on Thyroid Awareness Month and make sure to check out my video Dr Whiting on The Dr Oz Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Show.

Calcium, Magnesium, and Sleep

Have you ever noticed that you can almost always tell if someone has not slept well? They look the part! Oh we can cover that up with an extra dose of makeup or a spray tan but the eyes and the skin tone don’t lie. Lack of sleep can make you look really bad. There are many reasons for sleep issues from biochemical imbalances, to excess stress, but one of the most common causes of poor sleep is a mineral deficiency.

The minerals calcium and magnesium are opposites that work together in a host of functions internally. One of the roles of these minerals is to prepare the brain chemistry for sleeping. When you fall asleep it’s because specific brain chemicals rise within the brain and induce the somnambulist state. If this doesn’t happen you either don’t sleep well or not at all.

The old idea of a glass of warm milk before bed helps with sleep because milk contains calcium and magnesium. Unfortunately it also contains a fair amount of calories and lots of sugar. Sugar before bed can be a problem for lots of people with unstable blood sugar levels. It may induce sleep at first but you may awaken a couple of hours later as your blood sugar starts to fall.

A better answer is a calcium supplement that is designed to be bio-available to the body. This will prevent the calcium from just circulating around in the blood and forming crystals that can deposit in various sites throughout the body. In order to ensure the calcium is absorbed we also must include manganese copper, zinc, and perhaps even some strontium. Consider the formula that we use for all our clients – Bio-Complete Calcium Plus.

I developed this formula as there are 7 separate clinical studies showing that this combination of co-factor nutrients can bring about the greatest absorption. Check back next month for information on Fatty Liver Disease and make sure to check out my video Exposing Nutrition Myths.

Arthritis & Inflammation

Arthritis has become so common in folks over the age of 50 that it is almost assumed that we all have “a little arthritis” when visiting our doctor. The process of arthritis is a long and complicated one, it begins by a lack of essential nutrients to replace the cartilage that is normally worn down through joint movement. This results in synovial fluid being pumped into the joint to try and stabilize the bone connection. Synovial fluid is very pro inflammatory, causing the joint to inflame and swell. This further causes cartilage damage and greater joint instability.

In order to fully address the arthritis situation we need to not only provide the body with the raw materials it needs to rebuild cartilage tissue but also to control the inflammation process to prevent further accelerated damage to the joints. Our Joint and connective tissue formula called Joint Flow, provides all the raw materials needed to maintain healthy joints and flexibility. When combined with our natural anti-inflammatory support formula called InflamEze, we can reduce inflammation safely without the obvious side effects of drug therapy.

For an overall total approach to joint and connective tissue support the use of these two formulas together will have the most profound results. Keep in mind that once the cartilage is completely gone from the joint area it is very difficult to replace it; This is why time is often of the essence when addressing arthritis and other joint compromising issues; the sooner you can get inflammation under control and provide the raw materials needed for repair, the sooner you will have less permanent damages.

Calcium Supplements Actually Increases Risk of Heart Disease

It seems that every few years the drug companies have to attack a natural essential nutrient claiming it to be “dangerous”. Well they are at it again, this time with calcium. A recent study, constantly over reported by the media, now confirms that calcium supplements can cause health problems. Calcium from food they say, does not have this danger. Why? The calcium they used in the study was ground up rocks, commonly called calcium carbonate. This material is extremely difficult to absorb, especially for people over the age of 50. This causes the calcium to crystallize and build up in the blood, possibly leading to calcification in various parts of the body.

Why does calcium from food not do this? The answer is simple, in foods we also find the key trace minerals necessary for calcium absorption such as manganese, copper, zinc, boron, etc. Also the calcium is naturally acidic in foods, making it much easier for the body to absorb. So what if we created a supplement that copied nature and provided all these essential factors into the formula? Well it would be just as safe as calcium from foods! That’s what we have done with our Bio-Complete Calcium Plus formula.

It provides natural acidity and all the needed trace minerals just as found in nature, ensuring the same safe and complete absorption of the calcium just as it if were from foods. The problem with these studies is that they never explain that all calcium supplements are not the same. They make blanket statements like calcium supplements are dangerous”, confusing the public. The media then gets on the bandwagon and repeats the story over and over again. Who do you think stands to benefit from this dangerous opinionated pseudo-science?

Well let’s see….. If people cannot get enough calcium from diet for a variety of reasons, over time they will begin to lose bone mass and at a certain age will then be diagnosed with bone loss or osteoporosis. Drug companies can then sell millions more prescriptions for drugs like Fosamax and Boniva!!! Of course these drugs have serious side effects but that’s OK because it’s about profits for the drug makers. Funny that these “news reports” never mention the seven double blind placebo controlled studies that have shown that the right form of calcium, together with the essential trace minerals, is not only safe but can actually reverse bone loss in those with osteoporosis!!

If you want a calcium supplement that has been formulated to duplicate the calcium in nature try our formula. It is currently being offered through Phoenix Nutritionals 1-800-440-2390. Avoid bone loss and reduce your risk for osteoporosis and all the complications that can go with it. Perhaps you will never need those dangerous drugs with all their side effects!!

Natural Menopause Management

Anyone who suffers from the symptoms of menopause knows the annoying and uncomfortable effects. Mood swings, depression, hot flashes, and night sweats make up some of the more common symptoms of hormone imbalance. The medical systems answer to this was “well it’s a deficiency so we need to give more estrogen”. Bad idea! As previously discussed this created a near epidemic of cancer of the ovaries and later of the breasts. Since there are natural nutrients and hormone precursor agents that can support the body’s own ability to both make hormones and keep them in balance, this is an alternative.

One of the most powerful natural ingredients that we have available to us is called pregnenolone. This is what is called a hormone precursor, meaning that the body can use this substance to manufacture many different hormones thereby keeping the balance and ratio in line with optimal health. The downside is that pregnenolone is very costly and many supplement companies avoid using it for that reason. Oftentimes, they will use wild yam extract instead. While this ingredient does have some benefit, it does not offer the ability for balance to the body chemistry. Further wild yam is fairly weak on its own and really needs to be combined with other factors for maximum benefit and result.

As with all body chemistry, balance and ratios are often more important than mere potency alone. When formulating support products for specific needs such as menopause support, we first take all the clinical studies offering support for specific nutrients and other natural factors into consideration. Then we combine those factors together in the right potency and ratios for maximum results. Supplying the nutrients alone is often not enough but when you address balance and ratio in addition to raw potency the body’s chemistry responds with favorable results. Next month articles on Immune Health Awareness Month will be coming soon.

Menopause Awareness Month

September is Menopause Awareness Month and this is particularly important to me as I have been fighting to save women from the possible horrors of Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) due to the many side effects including several types of cancers. For decades women were given high amounts of estrogen hormone to control their menopausal symptoms. This was devastating since most women in the menopause are already estrogen dominant and need no more. The end result was an epidemic of ovarian cancer. Eventually the drug companies began offering multifaceted HRT and this helped one problem but created another. While this lowered the incidence of ovarian cancer dramatically it caused an epidemic of breast cancer, the effects of which are still being felt by women today.

All of this is a sad story simply because it could have been avoided. The majority of women in the menopause are in need of progesterone and not estrogen. By simply switching the HRT to focus on progesterone instead of estrogen millions of cases of cancer in women of this age group could have been prevented. Why did this not happen? There are likely several factors involved in that answer but I am sure one of those deciding factors was the fact that progesterone is not patent-able and as such no one wanted to use it.

Lastly, there are all natural nutrients and extracts that can often eliminate the need for HRT altogether by supporting the body’s own ability to produce and regulate hormone balances. In an upcoming article we will be addressing those natural factors and how you can incorporate them in your life with safe and effective results. If you are taking HRT be sure you know exactly what is in the formula you are being given. Question the safety of these powerful drugs and consider the possibility of using natural alternatives. Next month articles on Immune Health Awareness Month will be coming so check back soon.

Calcium Supplements linked to higher dementia risk

A recent study being discussed in the news concerns calcium and its link to dementia. This study is interesting since it is unknowingly very misleading.

We know that calcium is an essential nutrient and even more so as we age to prevent bone loss and help regulate the electrolyte balance in the body. How then can such an important nutrient be also linked to dementia?

The answer is simple it depends on the type of calcium used! Most calcium supplements are from calcium carbonate or essentially ground up rocks. In this form the calcium is almost totally non-absorbed, especially in those over age 50. This form of calcium is often deposited in various places in the body causing kidney stones, heel spurs and now apparently can cross the blood brain barrier and affect specific sites in the brain.

People taking this form of calcium often still show signs of calcium deficiency because it is so poorly absorbed. This does NOT occur when a highly absorbed form of calcium is supplemented. I have been saying for many decades that “not all minerals are created equal”. The form and the ratio of mineral supplements can make them either safe and effective or unsafe and ineffective.

There is no doubt that we all need calcium on a daily basis but the right form of calcium is crucial for many reasons. Supplemental calcium MUST be chelated or acidified for absorption. Further, key trace minerals must also be present in order for calcium to be absorbed at the cellular level where it needs to be. Trace minerals such as boron, zinc, manganese, copper, and strontium are all necessary to achieve maximum calcium uptake by the cells. When these criteria are met, calcium is just as safe as it is necessary by the body.

Several years ago I formulated a calcium formula that meets all these requirements and over the years thousands of people have used it successfully, preventing bone loss, so fuel the body safely with these essential nutrients. You can read more about this unique formula and purchase it, it is called Bio Complete Calcium Plus.

This combination of nutrients is backed by no less than seven clinical studies showing the safety and effectiveness of the formula.

Should you have any questions about the safety and necessity of calcium please feel free to call my office at 1-888-454-8464. We will have articles next month on Cholesterol Awareness Month so check back soon and make sure to watch my video Exposing Nutrition Myths Part 2 of 2.

Bone Loss and Calcium – The Right Calcium Can Make the Difference

There are probably hundreds of calcium supplements on the market. The vast majority of them are almost totally worthless when it comes to preventing and reversing bone loss in older individuals. In order to accomplish this the calcium and other major minerals such as magnesium, need to be chelated or acidified for better absorption. Next the formula MUST also supply all the trace minerals necessary for absorption and transport of calcium ions to the bones. These include manganese, copper, zinc, boron, and strontium.

Without these elements in the right ratios, calcium uptake is compromised. When we say that “not all calcium is equal” we are not kidding! The form and combination can make the difference between highly effective and almost worthless. Read labels and trust your sources.

Vitamin Clinical References

Please watch my video Vitamin Clinical References, in my video I talk more about how when it comes to nutrient effectiveness and safety, there is nothing else that has more clinical studies behind it. The average drug goes through a few tests and clinical trials before it is rushed to market, often never being tested again. Foods are adulterated with chemicals and additives and no one ever bothers to examine the effects of these additions until a lot of people get sick.

Nutrients on the other hand, have been tested and studied hundreds of times over the past five decades alone. We know there is no doubt of their safety and efficacy. Another article coming next month about trace minerals and make sure to check out my video Exposing Nutrition Myths it is a must see for anyone, and check out the Clinical References for the products I have formulated.

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.
