Sleep Apnea and Diabetes

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.

Is High Cholesterol Bad?

It seems that everyone is either afraid of having elevated cholesterol or having already been diagnosed with this problem. Statin drugs, along with their host of potentially serious side effects, are handed out like candy by physicians who have been led to believe that cholesterol is a major factor in heart disease.

The fact of the matter is cholesterol has never ever caused one case of heart disease in medical history. This is not to say that excessively high cholesterol is healthy or even normal, but it does not cause heart disease. If your cholesterol is elevated, above 220 total cholesterol, it is a sign that you have a liver problem. At least 80% of all the total cholesterol in your body at any given time was manufactured internally in your liver. The remaining 20% or so, may come from diet. This is why low-cholesterol, low-fat diets are relatively ineffective for lowering cholesterol levels. The less cholesterol you consume in your diet the more your liver manufactures.

In order to address this problem, we need to address liver function through detoxification and key nutrients. Once the liver has been properly addressed it will once again in most cases, normalize its production of cholesterol according to need and not to excess. The nutrients that have proven effective for this task have been combined in a convenient easy to take formula. In addition to being effective, an added benefit is the fact that they have no side effects whatsoever, unlike statin drugs which can be thwarted with many side effects, some of them serious. The cholesterol formula that we researched and developed here in our Institute is called The Best Cholesterol Support Supplement.

Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet craze. Ketogenic diets have been in use since the early 1970s and even before. The dietetic Association does its best to discourage and dissuade people from using these programs for no other reason other than they just don’t understand. Because these programs are so effective for so many people they keep returning in popularity over and over again. Currently the so-called Keto program is gaining popularity once again. Let’s take a look at why these diet programs remain popular and remain effective for millions of people who use them.

Ketosis is a term we use when a human body is utilizing fat for fuel instead of glucose or body sugar. Because the standard American diet has become so heavily laden with sugar and sugar forming foods, we have created an epidemic of what is called insulin resistance and subsequent obesity. Even just 20 or 25 years ago we would generally not see insulin resistance in individuals until they reached 40 years of age or so. Today we see moderate to severe insulin resistance in people as young as their teen years. Each generation inherits this potentially deadly situation at a younger and younger age, fueled by constant consumption of sugar and sugar forming foods. Genetically speaking our ancestors did not have access to nor did they consume concentrated sugars in these incredibly high amounts. Their lifestyle and their eating habits were much different from ours. Our ancestors were physical people, most of them did physical labor or work, which helps to burn any excess glucose formed from dietary foods. In those days people consumed about 20 pounds of sugar per year per person. Today however, the average person consumes his or her own body weight in sugar or more annually. For some people this appears, at least on the surface, not to present overt problems such as elevated blood sugar, insulin resistance or obesity. But for many, many millions of people it has done exactly that. Insulin resistance, obesity, and type II diabetes are at epidemic proportions like at no other time in human history. This is why the ketogenic type diet has become so effective for the majority of these individuals.

As we said before, ketosis is the process the body goes through when it burns fat for fuel instead of glucose. Stored body fat, which leads to overweight and obese conditions, is the result of the body’s hormone called insulin, which converts glucose or rather excess glucose into triglycerides and stores them in your fat cells. This process has virtually no limit, which is why some people can gain an excess 100, 200 or more pounds without stopping. Once an individual becomes insulin resistant there are only two ways to effectively address this serious issue. The first is through dietary restrictions. These individuals must greatly curtail their consumption of sugar and sugar forming foods in order to lower their insulin levels and halt the conversion of this excess glucose to body fat. The second potential benefit in managing insulin resistance can come from key nutrients. Chromium, vanadium, aspartic acid, and several herbal extracts such as cinnamon, can help regulate and modulate blood sugar and subsequently insulin levels. The ketogenic diet, now referred to as the Keto diet, is generally safe and effective for most everyone. We are often taught by dietitians and well-meaning physicians that a state of ketosis is potentially dangerous. However, unless you have a unique metabolic disorder, nothing could be further from the truth. There are generations of indigenous peoples who go from cradle to grave in a constant state of ketosis. These individuals are lean, healthy, strong, and overall physically fit. Fortunately, many medical doctors are beginning to see the value, benefit, and safety of these types of programs. If we are ever to get a handle on the obesity epidemic it will only be through ketogenic approaches. The standard American diet and our own inactivity have contributed to this deadly disease process and only by reducing or greatly controlling the consumption of carbohydrate foods will there be hope and help for the tens of millions of people suffering from this disorder. Medical science is all too aware of the dozens and dozens of complications that can result as a direct link to obesity, not the least of which is type II diabetes, which has become epidemic in the last 20 years.

There are many forms of the Keto diet such as the Atkins approach, the Keto approach, and our own unique program, which we developed right here in our research Institute of Nutritional Science. If you have tried low-calorie diet programs without success, it is likely that you are insulin resistant, especially if you are 50 pounds or more overweight. You can take the guesswork out of determining the biochemical causes for your obesity by taking our Weight Management Evaluation. This evaluation can pinpoint how your body metabolizes various food groups and is designed to help us develop a weight management program that will have the greatest chance of success for you.

Diabetes Awareness Month

We are reminded that type II diabetes is the most epidemic chronic disease in the world, with new cases every day. This is sad because this disorder is often totally caused by lifestyle abuse. Here at our Research Center we are experts on managing diabetes with a combination of diet and supplements. The standard diabetes diets are the worst diets for diabetics and rarely are effective. When you consider this is a problem of excess insulin or insulin resistance, you can see how the proper supplements can make a big difference. Our program for diabetes not only include this disorder but hypoglycemia as well. Additionally, most overweight and obese individuals are also insulin resistant and benefit greatly from our program. Our specialized supplement for all these conditions is called Blood Sugar Support.

If you are diabetic or significantly overweight our program can make a world of difference as it has for thousands of people over the years. If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact my office at 1-888-454-8464 we have over 30 years’ experience in diabetes and obesity.

Pro-Inflammatory Foods to Avoid

There are only a few pro-inflammatory foods but the problem is that our diets are made up primarily of those foods, which is why inflammation is rampant in our bodies, causing multiple health problems at many levels.

Sugar, white flour products and some fats are the most pro-inflammatory. Sadly many people live off these foods, creating constant irritating inflammation internally. The Omega 6 fatty acid is very pro-inflammatory while the 3 and 9 groups are anti-inflammatory. Most of our processed fats and oils are very high in omega 6 fatty acids, making them very pro-inflammatory.

We should all try to reduce our consumption of these foods as much as possible but let’s face it we will not totally succeed. For this reason we developed a formula that contains natural anti-inflammatory nutrients to help offset the inflammation caused by our dietary choices. This formula can help ease the discomfort from many inflammatory issues. It’s called Natural Anti-Inflammatory Support and you can get the same formula we use from Phoenix Nutritionals.

Sleep Apnea and Diabetes

The news of late has been filled with a variety of articles warnings and other information about sleep apnea and diabetes. Apparently somebody feels that this is a new epidemic. It is not. Sleep apnea has been going on for many years because one of the main causes of this problem is excess body weight to the point of obesity. In order to better address the sleep apnea problem we will need to address excess weight. One of the best ways to begin this process is by identifying how your body best uses food. Once armed with this information we can assist you in designing a weight management program that will likely fit your body chemistry and produce results more effectively and faster. You can take our weight management evaluation here on this website.

Once completed it will automatically be sent to our offices where we will review your answers and contact you by phone to discuss the best program for you. One of the other areas that we often consider when talking about excess weight is detoxification a good liver cleanse and body detox can greatly assist in jump starting the metabolism once again. Keep in mind that stored body fat also stores toxins so the overweight individual is often a bit more toxic than someone of a more normal weight. A total body cleanse would not only include a colon cleanse but would also address the liver and provide a cleanse to the bowel. Liver detox and a bowel cleanse are just as important as a good colon cleanse and should not be overlooked. Recently we developed a formula that serves the purpose of addressing all the organs of elimination so we can achieve a total body detox a liver detox as well is a colon cleanse all in one. In addition we added to this formula natural and safe factors to increase metabolic resting rate. These metabolic enhancing factors are completely safe for everyone as they do not involve stimulating the central nervous system such as caffeine and ephedrine’s do.
