Our entire lives are controlled by hormones yet, more often than not, if you go to an endocrinologist (a doctor specializing in hormones) they simply check the symptom and throw a pill at you. OK, I am probably playing the same broken record here, but do you really want this as a national health care plan? More of them same and get fined if you don't want it?
So let's talk a bit about hormones and what the imbalance(s) can affect.
Your body is an incredible creation. It gives warnings and alarm "bells" all the time. Some of those alarms are such things as low libido, increased weight gain (especially around the tummy and butt), hot flashes (I prefer to call them "power surges"), breast tenderness, mood swings, decreased stamina, decreased muscle size, rapid aging, osteoporosis, hearling loss and about 40 other symptoms not usually associated with a "simple" hormone imbalance.
I recommend that every man and woman over 35 get a saliva test every year. My lab of choice is ZRT labs in Beaverton, Oregon. (If you live in California or New York, you will have to have a practitioner, RN, PA, chiropractor, acupuncturist, etc.) order the kit for you.
Please check your Estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and DHEA. These tests will usually run about $150.00 and it's the best $150.00 you'll ever spend on your health. SInce your doctor probably won;t do it, you'll have to.
Your practitioner will interpret the rather simple results for you and most likely recommend a natural course to take. (We'll talk more about so-called Bio-identical hormone treatments in another entry.)
Why saliva and not a blood test?
I have several very good friends who are medical doctors and we go round and round about this one. Remember! I'm a blood guy, but I think that saliva is much more accurate and here's why.
Sex hormones such as progesterone, estrogen and testosterone are fat-soluble steroids similar to cholesterol that attach to lipids in the blood and get stored in fat tissue.
Only 2 to 5 percent of serum progesterone, estrogen and testosterone is "free" or non-protein-bound. This is the hormone available to target tissues and to saliva. Thus, these hormones measured by serum levels is mostly a measure of hormones that are not going to be used by the body and is therefore an erroneous calculation for our purposes.
Hormones transported by red blood cell membranes are readily available to all target tissues and to saliva. This progesterone is completely bioavailable and readily measured by saliva testing. Only a small fraction of it is carried by the watery serum. Obviously, serum testing is not a good way to measure transdermal progesterone absorption.
What I am saying about hormone transdermals also applies to other creams, as well.
I suggest you read What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause available through Amazon. This will explain in great detail what I trying to say here in a short blog.
You will be amazed at how many so called diseases (like Hashimoto's) is not a disease at all but a hormone imbalance.
Now, I know I only covered the basics, but unless you do the research, your doctor probably will not diagnose or treat the proper symptom. How many young women and teenage girls are thrown birth control pills when indeed that simply increases the risk of breast and lung cancer.
I am not saying your doctor is ignorant or stupid. I am only saying that they are overwhelmed by the system and really haven't the time to practice medicine anymore. If you want more of this medicine, then by all means let Congress run ahead with a system that isn't working.
But, please, please read and do your due diligence. It's your body.

Depression caused by loss of a loved one is normal and may require simple time to "heal all wounds." Friends don't hurt either.
Depression of unknown source is most often caused by a physiological problem such as a drop in B12 and folic acid. More often than not, this is preceded by anti biotic use which will drop your B12 and folic acid. Address the issue and not the symptom by treating your colon right. Yep. It's not in your head but your gut.
Most often, Leaky Gut Syndrome is the cause and should be addressed accordingly.
Finally, you can opt for pharmaceuticals. But, before you do, please read the warnings. Here is the FDA black box warning for Cymbalta.
WARNING: SUICIDALITY AND ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGSAntidepressants increased the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders. Anyone considering the use of Cymbalta or any other antidepressant in a child, adolescent, or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need. Short-term studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidality with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults beyond age 24; there was a reduction in risk with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults aged 65 and older. Depression and certain other psychiatric disorders are themselves associated with increases in the risk of suicide. Patients of all ages who are started on antidepressant therapy should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, or unusual changes in behavior. Families and caregivers should be advised of the need for close observation and communication with the prescriber. Cymbalta is not approved for use in pediatric patients.
Yikes! Anti depressants? Suicide? Let me see is suicide a depressive episode or just an "adverse event?" Oh well, your insurance will cover it.

The first one is the AMAS test. This is an Innovative Aid in Early Cancer Diagnosis and Follow up.
Oncolab provides the FDA approved AMAS blood test, helping health care professionals to diagnose cancer, and to follow up during treatment. In studies of more than 8,000 patients, the AMAS® Test was found to be 95% accurate and unique for its diverse use as a diagnostic tool regarding all non-terminal cancers. In some cases, the AMAS® test detected cancer 1 to 19 months before clinical detection.
A free testing kit can be ordered through the website or by calling 1-800-922-8378. Learn more about AMAS here.
Another example of a non invasive approved alternative to mammograms is thermography.
Thermography is a painless, non invasive, state of the art clinical test without any exposure to radiation and is used as part of an early detection program which gives women of all ages the opportunity to increase their chances of detecting breast disease at an early stage. It is particularly useful for women under 50 where mammography is less effective.
Additionally, thermography can help detect Inflammatory Breast Disease which a mammogram will not detect. Thermography can detect anomalies 6 years in advance of a mammogram! The information regarding your test is determined by doctors from Duke University and the results are usually available within days!
More information and local worldwide thermographers can be located here.
It's time we all had safe alternatives.
The medical explanation of a cure is no re occurance in 5 years. After billions of dollars have been spent researching this disease, we are no closer to a cure because this disease, like all diseases, is a money making cash cow. Millions of people every year give money for research which will never accomplish anything. One doctor Tullio Simoncini has had incredible results.
Dr Tullio Simoncini has postulated (with huge amounts of research) that cancer is caused by candidiasis albicans. His theory is that "cancer doesn't depend on mysterious causes (genetic, immunological or auto-immunological, as the official oncology proposes), but it results from a simple fungal infection whose destroying power in the deep tissues is actually underestimated."
I have always subscribed to the theory referred to as Ocham's Razor. Simply stated "The simple answer is always the solution." This could not be more evident in Dr. Simoncini's theory that C. Albicans is the culprit.
Unfortunately, candida albicans (a normal part of the flora in the colon) in the blood stream is a very common condition caused by 4 common situations; chemicals, diet, radiation and stress. These factors can cause the colon to become compromised and, in effect, disarms the immune system.
We see this "leaky gut syndrome" in 90% of our clients. It is almost always the condition we address most often.
To quote Dr. Simoncini again "In the fungal perspective, in fact, the effectiveness of surgery is noticeably reduced because of the extreme diffusibility and invasiveness characteristic of a mycelial conglomerate. Surgery to solve the problem is therefore tied to the case; that is, to conditions in which one has the luck to be able to remove the entire colony completely (which is often possible in the presence of a sufficient encystment, but only where benign tumours are concerned).
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy produce almost exclusively negative effects, both for their specific ineffectiveness and for their high toxicity and harmfulness to the tissues, which in the last analysis favours mycotic aggressiveness.
By contrast, an antifungal, anti-tumour-specific therapy would take into account the importance of the connective tissue together with the reproductive complexity of fungi. Only by attacking the fungi across the spectrum of all its forms, at points where it is most vulnerable from the nutritional point of view, would it be possible to hope to eradicate them from the human organism."
I strongly suggest that you take a look at his website for his treatment options. Look here for that information. His treatment is very simple and is a simple approach similar to suggestions that we make regarding cancer...sodium bicarbonate. It's that simple.
The implications of his research would mean the following:
1) eighty years of genetic study and application has been for nothing, especially considering that the genetic theory of cancer has never been demonstrated;
2) the loss of millions, if not billions, of lives with all the suffering has been for nothing;
3) the billions of dollars spent on chemotherapy medicine, radiotherapy, etc. has been for nothing;
4) the recognition and prizes given to eminent researchers and professors has been for nothing;
5) the oncologist could be replaced by the family doctor; and
6) the pharmaceutical industry will incur tremendous financial losses (sodium bicarbonate is inexpensive and impossible to patent).
The simple answer is usually the solution (that solution being bicarbonate of soda!)
Time to wake up America. Cancer can be cured. It's being done in many countries but as long as we continue to feed the trough of research we will never find a cure.

(She still has no sign of MS after 30 years.)
What causes MS is known, regardless of what you have been told. Lida Mattman, in her seminal book "Cell Wall Deficient Forms...Stealth Pathogens" discovered the cause and subsequent cure for her daughter's MS. After her research book was published, she mentioned to a group of assembled doctors that "Our not telling people what causes MS is criminal." The next day they attempted to have her removed from her Emeritus chair at Wayne State University.
Her book is available here from Amazon. I promise you at $175.00 and it's deep scientific language it is not Saturday night reading. But, the truth isn't cheap.
So much for truth in research. Every time someone comes calling for the March on MS I turn them away. Every time someone in a grocery store checkout asks for money, I turn them down. It infuriates me to no end that the truth is not the goal...money is.
One would think that after throwing billions after billions at cancer and Multiple Sclerosis we might be closer to a cure. Unfortunately for the millions who suffer from these diseases a cure is not in the offing...at least from Big Pharma. Money and not cure is the motivator.
So, Lida Mattman was the grand ole Dame of Mycoplasma research. She set many of us on the trail of truth. Her discovery that mycoplasma brucellosis is the cause of MS was ground breaking yet it still remains in the murky shadows of news. One would think that doctors would praise the answers and search out the cure, but nothing yet.
So let me explain these little "critters" in a very short way. I don't have the space here but read Dr. Mattman's book for details.
In nature, all cells have a cell wall...like you and me. We call our cell wall skin. Sticking out of our skin are tiny hairs or, in the microbiological world, receptors. These receptors are the handy dandy "guides" or "buoys" that give our immune system their direction. Well, millions of years ago mycoplasma and other Cell Wall Deficient Forms (CWD's for short) took off their skin taking their receptors off, as well.
In doing this, they became effectively invisible to the macrophages (white cells) in your body. But the real havoc comes not from the pathogen itself but from your immune response doing exactly what nature intended it to do. But, having no distinct "buoy" to guide it, the t-cells begin spraying hydrogen peroxidase all over the place, especially the myelin sheath, attempting to destroy the invader. This is the so-called auto immune response. It isn't what we are told...the body is not attacking itself. It is attacking a stealthy invader.
As the myelin sheath is compromised (like an electrical wire insulation being destroyed) the typical MS symptoms begin to show. Hormones go haywire, shakes and numbness increase, etc.
In many cases, extreme debilitation and often death ensue.
Sadly, there is no reason for this.
First, let me say that this is simply my experience with my wife and not intended as medical advice. For information, please seek the help of a medical doctor.
It is important to understand CWD's. There are hundreds and many will simulate each other. Borellia Burgdorferi (Lyme disease) or spirochetes will evoke the same response as m. brucellosis. Some parasites will also cause the same symptoms. For example, Toxoplasma gondii will and does cause many of the same symptoms.
There is only one definitive test for m. brucellosis and that is a PCR or polymerase chain reaction. Since CWD's are neither viral or bacterial they will not culture like strep' or H1N1.
Second, regardless of what we are told, CWD's, by and large, will not respond well to anti biotics. So one must find a way to attack them that is outside the realm of most Western pharmaceuticals...and these are the ones we used.
We used colloidal silver. The brand we use is Sovereign Silver which can be purchased here). It is perfectly safe and can be used for long periods of time without any side effects at all. We used 1 tablespoon 6x daily followed by 2 probiotics at night. Pathogens cannot exist in the presence of silver. This was what doctors used for years in newborn's eyes and NASA uses it today for Astronaut's shirts to prevent bacterial odor. The FDA has tried to have it removed from the Health Food stores (wonderment.)
The dosage was for an extended period of more than 6 months. We also supplemented with lecithin to re-build the myelin sheath. We also supplemented with pregnenolone to help rebuild the myelin sheath.
Your body is equipped with an amazing ability to repair itself and repair of the myelin sheath is carried out by Schwann cells. But, these little guys require progesterone as fuel. What happens is the body begins to deplete it's hormonal reserves and one of the first things MS people notice is a drop in libido. It needs the fuel to repair.
We used 100mg of pregnenolone in the evening.
There are many other ways to do this, but this is the simplified version.
Ok. We had to determine if she actually had MS. Lyme and parasites will mimic MS. So make sure you actually have m. brucellosis and NO you do not need a spinal tap or MRI! A simple PCR is sufficient.
The trickiest part is convincing your doctor that you now know something he doesn't or wasn't taught. For that my freinds, I wish you luck. But, feel free to contact me if you need more details.

Most people know that Lyme is caused by a tick bite. That is partly true. Lyme is a result of an infection by a spirochete or Borellia Burgdorferi or Bb for short. But, most people infected with Lyme do not recall being bitten by a tick according to the Centers for Disease Control. Unfortunately, that's as far as they go. The truth is the main vector (carrier) for Lyme is milk. (This is why, for example, that the Wisconsin area is often referred to as The MS Belt.)
When I tell my clients this, they usually respond with "I only drink organic milk." It doesn't matter whether it's organic or not. The risk is still there. It also doesn't matter anymore where you live because Lyme has spread from its original site in Old Lyme, Connecticutt to as far away as the West Coast.
We can thank our friends at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Air Force for inventing this. You can read more in the Book Lab 257.
Most of us believe that Bb is a major player in many major undiagnosed disorders and those neurological problems like MS, one of the most misdiagnosed conditions today.
Some people with Lyme disease will have flu-like symptoms with or without a rash. These symptoms may include:
- Lack of energy, which is the most common symptom.
- Headache and stiff neck.
- Fever and chills.
- Muscle and joint pain.
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Partial facial nerve paralysis which usually occurs within the first few months after the tick bite or infection.
- Neurologic changes, including problems with memory, mood, or sleep, and sometimes problems speaking.
While most Medical doctors will treat Lyme with antibiotics, antibiotics are only effective in early stages of the disease. Chronic sufferers will experience little relief if it is diagnosed in the later stages of the disease. (Remember that you probably will not have the customary rash associated with a tick bite. It might be as simple as your "moostache" from milk.)
In our area, we are fortunate to have several practitioners who specialize in Lyme. One in particular, is our dear friend Dr. Nicola McFadzean. You can access her site here. She is not only a highly trained and experience practitioner, but Dr. Nicola is also a passionate advocate for sufferers of Lyme and other disorders.
Lyme or Bb is also treatable with any number of alternative methods and I would suggest you contact Dr. Nicola for more information.
If you believe your symptoms are consistent with Lyme, please contact either myself or Dr. Nicola.
The U.S. is in deep financial trouble (duh) and all of this talk about a recovery is poppycock (I always wanted to say that). What really gripes me is this constant reference to the "Fed" and the FDIC as government agencies. They are not government agencies! They are private corporations without any oversight from the U.S. Government at all, yet they act as though they are.
And they do it with our money! Your congress is pilfering every last drop of money and that green paper in your pocket is nothing but fiat...worthless paper scrip.
Our financial security and our children's future is being rapidly and systematically defrauded by these fraudulent "government" agencies. These corporations are nothing more than arms of the banking trusts that have, as their agenda, total control of world economies.
A perfect example is the latest news that the FDIC may "borrow" money from the Treasury due to the projected failure of more banks through 2013! In May, the Treasury extended the FDIC loan guarantees from 30 billion to 100 billion. (Read the full article here.)
If the Federal Reserve and the FDIC are allowed to further plunder your children's future then where will we turn when the 775 billion dollar health care plan emerges from Congress? Make no mistake. These profiteers fully intend to pass this legislation with or without your consent. This is nothing more than a final takeover of every right you have left.
When President Johnson pushed Medicare through in his War on Poverty (a dismal failure) he cautioned congress not to mention the true figures for the cost or the bill would die in Congress. So they lied to the people by omission and look what we have now.
Deceased Senator Everett Dirkson once observed "A million here. A million there. Pretty soon you're talking about a lot of money."
Ever notice how these "representatives" refer to tax cuts? "How are we going to pay for it?" Is this not the dumbest question you ever heard? One doesn't "pay" for a cut! How long are we going to allow this fraud to continue?
If you think healthcare is bad now wait until the government runs it! Medicare is broke. Social Security is broke. The banking system is broke. The Treasury is broke.
When is this insanity going to stop? I want to know...How ARE we going to pay for it?
It will stop when we decide that enough is enough! Throw every one of the bums out and let's start over.

Remember that guy who ran on "change?" So let's see. We have half of the Clinton Administration in office(s). We're about to get their idea of healthcare reform crammed down our throats because you will be fined if you don't get it (that's really a change for the better). The Medicare system is broke and broken so let's just add another 775 billion to the national debt.
The Washington answer is any change is better than nothing. Where do these people come from? Folks, anytime Big Pharma supports Washington, you better put your hands on your derriere and protect your sphyncter muscle.
The answer is stop fee for service healthcare. How many people have come to me and said "The doctors ran every conceivable test and everything was normal?" That's because fee for service encourages over testing.
Ever notice, if you google a disease, every single one is "incurable?" What do these people study in med' school?
Cuba exports more doctors to third world countries than any other nation! Hmmmm.
Another answer to healthcare is stop selling poison to everyone. The Hippocratic oath used to read "I will give no poison." It also used to say "I will perform no abortions."
They can't say that anymore. St. Thomas Aquinas was walking with one of his students through the splendor of Renaissance Rome and commented to Aquinas "We can no longer say 'Gold and silver have I none.'"
St. Thomas then responded "Yes, and we can no longer say 'Rise up and walk.'"
We have become Rome and if we don't do something fast...I mean FAST, we are in deep do do. Doctors need to become diagnosticians again and not pill pushers. The government needs to enact changes in how our foods are processed and sold. The FDA needs to become what it was intended to be and not a front for the drug companies.
Anyone remember thalidamide? Remember the children born without limbs? President Kennedy was enraged and made substantial changes to the FDA (which were promptly undermined).
Until we get rid of every single one of these profiteers who call themselves our representatives, we will continue to get exactly what we deserve...the best government money can buy.
I mean vote everyone of them out of office and do it FAST. We need to make changes. NOT their idea of change, but ours. If we don't do it, we will never "rise up and walk." We will forever be on our knees wondering what happened to the Republic that was these United States.

Disregard the fact that American food is laden with every chemical, hormone and anti biotic ever invented. Why not do what most countries (like Holland, for example) do. Do not allow additives in food. What a novel idea. Food that is actually... food.
But, in Washington's warped minds (assuming lawyers actually have minds and hearts) taxing a problem is far and away the best answer to everything. Does anyone remember why we fought a little thing called the Revoluntionary War? It was all over King George trying to levy a tea tax of 1/4 of 1 percent!
We are overfed and under nourished. When Diana and I went to her former homeland of the Netherlands, I could not believe the taste of their food. It was awesome. You can actually eat a salad without dressing because it tasted so good! In two weeks of eating about everything in sight (including beer which I normally do not drink) I lost 12 pounds. Is this simple or what?
Incidentally, the best calzone I have ever eaten was just outside of Antwerp. Go figure.
Another proposal by our politicos in Washington adds their incredible 2 cents: (Read the article here.)
- Recognize proven clinical interventions. Studies demonstrate, for example, that shedding just 5 percent to 10 percent of body weight can lower the risk of and other chronic conditions.
- Enhance the use of preventive services. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends obesity screening for all adults, yet studies show height and weight data often is not recorded during an office visit.
- Foster community programs and polices that encourage and support healthy lifestyles. A community might design public spaces that accommodate walkers and bikers, for example, or sponsor a farmer's market to make fresh produce available to local residents.
- Coordinate research efforts to improve the quality of care, show which interventions work in various settings and translate science into practice.
Anyway, let's talk about getting our food supply fixed. Ah, but I forgot, Monsanto and the rest of the purveyors of poison would lose money and we can't have that.
Oh, give me a break!
This is a 26 billion dollar industry and the drug companies will do anything they can to hang on to this one. Fortunately, people are catching on. In a recent 4,500-patient study it failed to prove that patients who had just suffered heart attacks were helped by treatment with high doses of Merck's Zocor. You can read one article here.
So let's quickly talk about what truly is at issue here. As you age, your body begins to produce more cholesterol to protect your cardiovascular system. But, as you age you also begin to produce more oxidation (the "rusting" of your red blood cells) and this can begin to produce homocysteine. This amino acid can be a risk factor for cornary artery disease by contributing to atherosclerotic placgue in the arteries.
This can be prevented in several ways, one of which is increase your levels of anti-oxidants such as pinebark or grape seed extract. Try to purchase one of these with at least 85% concentrations of oligomer proanthocyanidins (OPC's for short).
If LDL's and HDL's are out of balance (LDL's higher than HDL's) you have a niacin deficiency. Try 500 mgs of niacinamide (as inositol hexanicotinate) 2x daily and watch your numbers change dramatically.
Also, hormone imbalances will cause elevated triglycerides and these should also be checked at least once a year. My favorite lab is ZRT labs in Beaverton, Oregon. You can receive more information here. These are accurate and inexpensive. These are also the most important tests you will ever run on yourself if you want to stay healthier and happier longer. (In New York and California you are too dumb to spit and you will need a practitioner of some sort to order these for you...even a chiropractor can do it).
Now I can't tell you to get off statin drugs because your doctor has prescribed it, but I can and will tell you to stop believeing the stories and fairy tales the drug companies have been telling you and check out what I am telling you.
Come to think of it, the drug companies really should be writing fairy tales because they have been so good at it.

It was sad to hear of Patrick Swayze's passing yesterday. Sad for many reasons not the least of which is he was a genuinely nice person. (Who can forget the "penny scene" in Ghost?) But, it was sad because it exposes how little has really been done to cure cancer after the billions of dollars that have been sunk into so-called research.
I predict (I love this part) that they never will cure cancer! Duh.
One of the difficulties I have with drug companies is the aggressive manner in which they market their products. They themselves will admit that all their products will do is limit or control symptoms. They will not cure anything.
That should come as no surprise. They are after all selling a product and the more one uses it the more profits they make.
Recent marketing has centered on vaccines. These are seen as massive profit centers for Big Pharma because it is "pitched" as a humanitarian effort by the drug companies. Of particular interest are the people who e-mail me regarding the HPV vaccine. These are usually parents who are concerned about their children.
I have listed below the most criticisms leveled by scientists and yes, my next favorite group, lawyers.
The criticisms made have included:
- Safety: In a study published August 19, 2009, researchers reviewed reports of over 12,000 adverse side effects with Gardasil from June 2006 through December 2008. Of these adverse events, about 6% resulted in hospitalization, permanent disability or death.
The most common symptoms reported were headache, nausea, fainting and dizziness. In addition to 32 deaths reported, there were 8 reports of anaphylactic reaction, 9 reports of deep vein thrombosis, 31 reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome (a rare, life-threatening nervous system disorder), 6 cases of pancreatitis, and 14 cases of pulmonary embolism.
The researchers did not find that Gardasil caused the patient deaths. However, they also noted that any conclusions on the safety of Gardasil were limited due the possible underreporting of adverse events.
- Effectiveness: Some physicians have questioned whether the vaccine prevents cervical cancer since the FDA approved the drug to protect against certain strains of HPV that can cause cervical cancer, but not all cancer-causing strains of HPV.
- Marketing: Researchers have criticized Merck for maximizing the threat of cervical cancer to adolescents and minimizing that HPV is transmitted through sexual activity. A physician involved in clinical trials of Gardasil stated last year that Merck's marketing has been "so aggressive" that the company has "created a sense of panic that says you have to have this vaccine now."

MRSA, for those who are not aware may prove to be the real pandemic for which there is no vaccine...at least that anyone will tell you about. Methicillin resistant staph aureus is barely treatable by conventional methods with an IV drip of vancomyecin and that may not work. Additionally, it is highly communicable. The truth is, MRSA has morphed because of our continuing overuse of antibiotics. We've known we were playing with fire for a long time, but we continue to do so.
Well, there is a way to combat it. While we were in LA, this past weekend, Diana came down with an e-coli infection. We had to check out early and she was in serious pain. When we reached home, we put her on hourly Sovereign Silver and within two hours, she was fine.
The same can be said for MRSA. So our suggestion is that if you suspect a bacterial infection, take 1 tbsp of silver on the hour and 1 probiotic 30 minutes later and continue this routine until you are certain the infection is over.
In the meantime, be very cautious where you swim and where you eat. Cook foods thoroughly and drink bottled water when in restaurants.

The obligatory FDA disclaimer: None of this is to be considered medical advice. Seek the advice of a medical doctor for professional help.
My choice for prevention is colostrum. Often called natures' first food, colostrum is available in several forms, most commonly capsules and powders. I prefer capsules for convenience and take 2 caps in the morning and evening. Colostrum is full of immune builders (Immunoglobulin) and growth factors. While only a drug, according to the FDA, will prevent or cure a disease (no one has managed to tell me what has been cured due to drug use) colostrum stands out as one of the first lines of defense and is very inexpensive. I do prefer brands from New Zealand because their livestock have no hormones or anti-biotics.
My second choice but far not a second rated supplement, is Sambucol in the Original Formula. Formulated by an Israeli virologist in Jerusalem, it is part of the Israeli military protocol. During flu season 1 tablespoon daily is recommended. For "intensive use" 1 tablespoon 4x daily is recommended.
Sambucol is available over the counter in health food stores, most grocery stores and pharmacies in the cold and flu aisle. It is inexpensive. Diana likes the stuff. For me, it's too sweet and I have to "cut it" with ice water. But, it works for me.
Another thought are Bio-Wave Generators from Germany. These are TENS units that run about $350.00 dollars and are famous for their effectiveness. You can read more about them on our website under "Supplements" and the link to their headquarters in Germany.
All of these are linked from our website.

I can just hear the lawyers in Congress. "OK. we'll make 'em buy it." Well, what do we expect from these guys? Tort reform? Nah. We need an overhaul so badly, we'll fine you even though you may not have a job. Better yet, we'll put you in jail for not paying the fine. Then we'll confiscate your children because you're a bad parent for not buying the health insurance you couldn't afford anyway.
Makes sense to me.
What planet do these guys live on? See the complete article here:
The World Health Organization has openly admitted, according to their website, that they have been working to "explore a broad range of issues surrounding the regulatory approval of pandemic vaccines" since 2007 - two years before the emergence of the novel swine flu. One method used in Europe's advance studies was to create a "mock-up" vaccine that uses an active ingredient for a flu virus that has not recently circulated in humans. This method makes it very easy to release the virus to the public in an effort to "greatly expedite regulatory approval."
Now they are asking you to get your shots (maybe two or three) to protect you against their own invention. Now, let me see. Yeah that works. Worse, several states have actually declared, in essence, marshal law on the American People who refuse to get the shot. I thought the Iron Curtain fell in 1981!
Here's what we should ask for from our "representatives" in Congress...the same retirement they get. NOT Social Security. They get their salaries until they die. You get maybe $1000 a month.
They get all inclusive health insurance for $300 a month. You get "reform" and loss of rights. I just heard from a mom who, after checking into the dangerous side effects of Remacaid, took her 4 year old off the chemo drug. He gained weight. He grew taller. He is doing well.
The doctors called in child protective services because the mom was "endangering the child."
Doesn't the word "reform" remind you of the typical rhetoric used by dictators? That's what Lenin, Stalin and Hitler called it. Welcome to the New World Order.
I agree we need some serious changes, but I do not want what this Congress is offering. If they cared about their constituents they would make real changes. But, folks, these are almost all lawyers. They can't make things simple. Their jobs require complication because that's how they think.
If they can't scare you into getting the shot then they will legislate it and make it illegal if you don't!

While often criticized for her obsessiveness, she was a courageous advocate of the truth and natural medicines.
She will be missed.
I was recently reminded by a good friend how fragile our freedom is. It is vital that you stay up to date in this often confusing world. That said, please visit and support the folks at http://blogs.healthfreedomalliance.org/
You and I are facing trying times to paraphrase our 18th Century Founding Fathers and the government(s) is using every tactic imaginable to take away your freedom including use of the swine flu to pass legislation that, in effect, declares marshal law.
Thank you Judy for your support and input.

I hope you are all enjoying the long Labor Day weekend. For many of you though, it isn't a holiday to celebrate as unemployment reaches 10% (it's actually higher than the Government admits.) What's really worse is we find our "representatives" in Washington debating about health care reform which a.) is not reform at all and b.) won't matter to those who have no job. Either way, it won't be free.
If the Medicare system will be broke (which it already is) by 2013, what makes anyone think that by adding more to the debt ridden system it will actually make any difference? We are in the beginnings of a debt meltdown that will make the Great Depression look like a cakewalk.
So let me add a little fact or two that will set the stage for I believe can be true healthcare reform.
#1. Which nation exports more doctors to more countries in the world?
#2 Which nation cures more chronic illness than any in this hemisphere?
The question should be why? Well, first I am not advocating we move to Cuba nor that we use Cuba as a medical model. God knows they have their problems! But, their medical system abandoned fee for service with the Castro Revolution. A Cuban Doctor is paid exactly the same as a street cleaner so the incentive to over treat, over test, over medicate, is not there. Hmmm.
Fee for service is the blight of our health care system. A doctor has no incentive (like Cuba) to get a patient back to health quickly. In fact, his incentive is to run more tests which will likely all come back normal anyway. There are no diagnosticians today. They are testers and drug dealers.
Heck, you pay a Doctor if he just pokes his head in your room. Something wrong here, folks.
Remember when the family practitioner was the poorest guy in town? That was because he practiced healing not dealing. I am not saying a doctor shouldn't be paid, but he should be paid to heal not deal.
Additionally, we have created an elitist system that was never intended by the founding fathers. The elitists are our supposed representatives in Congress. They face no chance of unemployment since we have proved we won't throw the bums out. They have health care plans that cost them $300.00 a month with no pre-existing clauses.
Congressman Darrell Issa (California 49th District) has introduced a simple 6 page bill in Congress (in contrast to the 1,000 page bill being introduced) seeking to give all Americans the same health care system he gets...and why not?
The elitists in Congress are not supposed to have more than the people they represent. But, they do. Keep in mind that Congress is made up of lawyers. What does that tell you?
If we paid Congress, like we pay doctors, by the word (which is how we pay lawyers), we would be in deeper poo poo than we are already. (Don't even get me started on Tort reform).
Furthermore, for a nation of pill poppers like the U.S., who consume 50% of the world's pharmaceuticals, we should be incredibly healthy yet the World Health Organization lists us as dead last in overall health. (Of course, that's from the guys who have given us our very own "pandemic"...again).
America's health care system spends more, for worse results, than that of any other advanced country.
The system is not sustainable nor can we afford to continue down the path to $9,000,000,000,000 deficits. I purposely show you the zeros because this is nuts! Right now, every man, woman and child in the U.S. owes $34,000. Pay up you sluggards!
You work for Uncle Sam!
We need true health care...not sick care. We need a responsible government. (Actually, we need a government we actually elected)!
Start healing and stop the dealing.
