Vibrational medicine is a promising area of “technology” (it’s difficult to call it that) that covers a variety of pioneering healing modalities now known to be far more powerful than drugs and surgery in improving the lives of patients. These modalities include:

  • Phototherapy: harnessing the healing power of natural sunlight to prevent cancer, reverse clinical depression, alter moods, increase bone density and much more.
  • Color therapy: using selected wavelengths of natural sunlight to create a physiological, psychological or energetic response in a patient.
  • Homeopathy: using the “memory of water” to imprint a patient with the healing properties of selected substances.
  • Sound therapy: the therapeutic use of sound waves to create a healing response in the patient. Music therapy is one branch of sound therapy.
  • Spiritual healing: harnessing the power of prayer and focused intention to alter the health outcome for a patient. Also called “non-local medicine.” It is well supported by double-blind placebo studies.
  • Mind/body medicine: harnessing the power of the patient’s own mind to affect healing. This is typically accomplished through meditation exercises, laughter as medicine, or creative visualization exercises. The proven power of the placebo effect demonstrates the enormous healing potential of this modality (in tens of thousands of medical studies, the placebo effect has been proven more effective than any prescription drug known to mankind).
  • Acupuncture: the use of tiny needles to alter the flow of chi (energy) through the body for a specific health reason.
  • Magnetic therapy: the use of permanent magnets or electromagnets to catalyze a healing response in the patient. Some magnetic therapies attempt to augment the Earth’s magnetic field; others deliver high-energy magnetic bursts in an attempt to destroy cancer tumors.
  • Crystals, gems and rocks: the harnessing of vibrations from crystals and other rocks for healing purposes. All crystals vibrate. In fact, if you are reading this report, you’re using crystal vibration right now! (The CPU clock in your computer operates on a timing signal generated by a crystal.)
  • Electromedicine: applying small electrical currents to selected points on the body to accelerate healing, repair broken bones, create changes in muscle training and body tension, destroy invading bacteria, and other uses. The body already relies on electromedicine for internal healing. All bones, for example, are piezo-electric devices that create an electric charge when stressed, attracting minerals like calcium to the site of the charge. In addition, a continuous electric current, when applied to the skin over a blood vessel, kills bacteria present in the blood. Electromedicine has great potential for healing.

There are many other areas as well, but these represent some of the most popular vibrational medicine technologies being used today.

Unlike the other technologies mentioned in this report, much of the technology already exists for vibrational medicine. Every therapy mentioned above is being used right now in the United States and around the world. The challenge is to see their use become widespread and accepted by practitioners of western medicine. Unfortunately, most practitioners of modern (western) medicine are steeped in an outdated mindset of drugs and surgery and tend to shun any therapy that isn’t sanctioned by the pharmaceutical industry.

Let’s take a closer look at the kind of paradigm shifts that will be required in modern medicine in order for vibrational medicine to earn increased credibility.

A brief history of
western medicine

Looking at the history of western medicine, the modalities and belief systems are readily divided into three chronological phases:

  1. Physical medicine.
  2. Chemical medicine.
  3. Energetic medicine.

Physical medicine describes the sort of medicine practiced by the western world in the 19th early 20th centuries. If a foot became infected, the doctor cut it off. Surgery was regarded as a “heroic” procedure (to a very large degree, it still is), and disease was understood to be caused by the physical malfunctioning of physical organs.

Chemical medicine emerged in response to the discovery of penicillin and the realization that certain chemicals — prescription drugs or antibiotics — could target and destroy infectious disease. This belief continues to this day, where diseases are now commonly described as “chemical imbalances” that must be treated with a lifetime of prescription drugs. Today, western medicine is firmly seated in the belief system of chemical medicine. Pharmaceutical companies, which dominate today’s medical landscape, rely exclusively on this paradigm to market their products and convince patients they need potent chemicals in order to be happy, healthy or sane. This is why nearly all diseases and symptoms are presently described as chemical imbalances that can be corrected with expensive drugs. This belief is a distortion, however.

Energetic medicine (vibrational medicine) is just starting to be explored by the medical mainstream. In energetic medicine, the powerful effects of subtle energy systems are explored and leveraged for healing. Energetic medicine recognizes the whole of the patient rather than the parts (as in physical medicine). Energetic medicine also believes that the human body is not a chemical dumping ground, and that both disease and health have core underlying causes that go far deeper than mere symptoms.

The future of medicine
is vibrational

Tomorrow’s medicine will no doubt increasingly rely on vibrational medicine. Not only is it a more advanced perspective on the true causes of disease and health, but it can be offered to patients with virtually no side effects and at very low cost. As one simple example, if a doctor can help a patient laugh heartily for five minutes, the patient will be significantly helped in all three areas: physical, chemical and vibrational.

From a physical point of view, the very act of laughing moves lymph fluid, promotes the oxygenation of body cells and organs, and improves circulation. From a chemical point of view, laughter results in the creation of literally tens of thousands of dollars worth of healthful brain chemicals (if you had to buy them, that is) that improve mood, enhance alertness, etc. From an energetic point of view, laughter helps relax the patient’s body and mind, opens them to enjoying interaction with others, and literally restructures their internal energies. That’s just one reason why Dr. Patch Adams, popularized in the movie with Robin Williams, relied so heavily on laughter as a powerful healing tool. In a very real way, laughter is perhaps one of the most powerful healing tools available to mankind, and yet today’s hospitals and doctors’ offices are hardly places that inspire unbridled joy.

The power of placebo

Interestingly, vibrational medicine has already been proven by literally tens of thousands of clinical studies to be the single most powerful healing tool known to western medicine, and yet it remains largely ignored by the very same people conducting the studies. Let me explain: in most clinical trials, there is something called the placebo effect which describes the level of healing that takes place in patients who were given no drugs and no surgery but who thought they received the drugs or surgery. For example, they would be given inert pills or subjected to a “sham surgery” that actually resulted in no real surgical operation. This is standard practice in clinical trials.

But even though the patients don’t receive the drugs or surgery as part of the study, they routinely show permanent improvements in their health. One study of Parkinson’s patients proved that this genuine health improvement remained strong even twelve months after the placebo surgery, and the measure of improvement was objective: even the medical staff agreed that patients showed measurable improvements.

Obviously, if patients are getting better thanks to the placebo effect, it can’t be the drugs or surgery that’s causing the improvement. The healing effect is caused by the mind of the patient. Their belief in the drug or surgery is what’s causing them to get better, not the actual drug or surgery (since they didn’t receive either).

Now here’s the amazing part: if you take a closer look at these tens of thousands of studies, you’ll find that the placebo effect has been proven effective in treating approximately 30% of all disorders and diseases. That’s right: this single mind/body tool has been scientifically proven to reverse or improve 30% of all diseases and symptoms: heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cancer… you name it. The proof is right there in the studies.

This is astonishing: mind/body medicine offers us a powerful healing tool that works with no negative side effects and zero cost… and it’s effective against practically any disease or condition. So what does western medicine do with this knowledge? They discard it. The placebo effect is routinely tossed or ignored. It’s considered a “false” result by medical researchers, even when the numbers prove it to be not just real, but perhaps the most powerful healing tool of all.

Truth is whatever
agrees with your
beliefs

Why does this happen? Doctors, researchers, surgeons and others in the medical community function like everyone else: when presented with evidence that contradicts their firmly held belief systems, they discard the new evidence because it doesn’t fit their internal model of the way the world works. Accordingly, the mountain of evidence supporting the placebo effect gets routinely discarded not because it isn’t compelling and scientific, but because modern medicine doesn’t understand how it could work. It doesn’t fit the model.

And it’s not just the placebo effect that gets ignored. Homeopathy is also routinely ignored or even attacked by western medicine for the simple reason that western medical technology doesn’t understand how it works, either. In a homeopathic remedy, an extract from a particular element such as a flower, a plant, or even a poison like arsenic, is mixed with water and then diluted to such extremes that there’s not a single molecule of the original element remaining in the final mixture. Yet the final mixture holds the “memory” or the “vibration” of the original element that was used, and it exhibits scientifically measurable and verifiable effects on biological systems (both humans and animals) when consumed.

The evidence showing that homeopathic remedies work is not merely compelling, it is scientifically robust. An honest researcher reviewing the clinical evidence on homeopathy can only reach one of two conclusions: either homeopathy works, or controlled, double-blind placebo clinical trials don’t work. In other words, if you measure the effect of homeopathic remedies using the same science and scrutiny as clinical drug trials, you get a significant result that proves homeopathic remedies work. And yet western medicine continues to throw out this scientific reality, not because it hasn’t been scientifically proven, but because it doesn’t fit the model.

Homeopathy is one of the most promising areas of vibrational medicine. Homeopathic remedies can help people fight infectious disease, reverse cancer and diabetes, improve their brain function, detoxify their systems, recover from wounds more quickly, increase fertility, and accomplish a long list of other health benefits.

Phototherapy

Phototherapy represents a rapidly emerging branch of vibrational medicine, and it’s being slowly accepted by the scientific community. In experiments with infrared light, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has shown that flesh wounds like scrapes, cuts and burns, heal 40% faster when exposed to a few minutes of infrared LED light each day. The mere presence of the light causes the body to accelerate its healing.

Light is a powerful healing tool, and no light is more available than our own sun. The sun is a source of tremendous healing potential. With natural sunlight, people can reverse prostate cancer and breast cancer, reverse clinical depression, enhance their bone density and prevent osteoporosis, vastly improve circulation, accelerate wound healing, and experience a long list of other significant health benefits. And yet, remarkably, nearly the entire population of the western world has been taught to believe that sunlight is dangerous.

People are warned to “stay out of the sun!” They slather on sunscreen, they wear heavy clothing, and they avoid the sun at all costs. Meanwhile, rates of prostate cancer are skyrocketing and vitamin D deficiency is now one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in America, Canada and Europe. With daily exposure to natural sunlight, the body creates its own vitamin D and puts it to work preventing prostate cancer, breast cancer and a long list of other disorders.

People need natural sunlight. It seems so obvious that it’s almost ridiculous having to point it out. And yet fear of the sun is so deeply ingrained in western societies that merely mentioning the phrase, “sunlight is good for you…” earns you gaping stares from practically everyone. Clearly, the human species didn’t evolve under fluorescent lighting: it evolved under the natural sun, and as human beings, we depend on frequent exposure to the sun for optimum health. Without sunlight, in fact, we cannot function in a healthy way. The growing problem of Seasonal Affective Disorder, where people experience deep depression due to lack of sunlight, is just one of the many clues pointing to the reality that people need natural sunlight in order to be healthy.

Lack of sunlight is even part of the reason we’re seeing an epidemic of obesity: sunlight exposure diminishes cravings for carbohydrates and sweets by balancing levels of serotonin in the brain.

Surgical
Sound Waves

Another promising area of vibrational medicine involves the use of sound waves for manipulating both physical tissues and energetic fields in the body. For this discussion, I’ll stick with the physical tissues.

By using standing waves of low frequency sound combined with subtle variations in the frequency and wavelength, we can directly control fluids (like blood and lymph) and even manipulate tissues in the human body without needing invasive surgery. How?

Cymatics =
the study of sound on
physical matter
Sound Waves

Sound restructures physical matter. This is evidenced by observing the effect of sound waves on grains of sand spread across the top of a large drum. If you hum into the drum, the sand will form physical patterns that coalesce across the drum head according to slight variations in pitch and amplitude. The science is called cymatics, and much of the original work in this area was conducted by the late Hans Jenny. (See http://www.cymaticsource.com for information.)

In cymatics, we see that sound creates waves of force that can move physical objects either towards or away from the source of that sound. In my own experiments using tone generator software, home speakers, sheet metal, and dirt from my back yard (how’s that for high-tech?), I was able to propagate grains of dirt and sand along a radiating path from the source of the sound by simply altering the frequency of the sound. (You have to watch the amplitude, however, because if the sound waves are too strong, the grains of sand will leap right off the sheet metal.)

For example, if you start with a sound frequency of 300 hertz (300 cycles per second), and then slowly reduce the frequency (pitch down the sound), it will elongate the wavelength of the sound and the grains of sand will slowly move away from you. If you start at a low frequency and increase the pitch, the grains of sand will move towards you as if on a conveyer belt.

“”Such technology blends the often mysterious world of vibrational medicine with today’s so-called “hard core science” to bring significant new healing modalities to the world of medicine. If sound can be widely accepted as a healing technology by organized medicine, further exploration into phototherapy, homeopathy and acupuncture is likely to follow. And that’s how modern medicine graduates from a stage two (chemical medicine) paradigm and moves into stage three (vibrational medicine).”” Naturalnews.com

Wrap Up

“”In all, vibrational medicine represents the next phase in the evolution of healing technology. It delivers powerful healing with no negative side effects and at very low cost. When fully embraced by the medical community, vibrational medicine will make chemicals and prescription drugs virtually obsolete. When it comes to vibrational medicine, the science is already here: reliable studies prove its efficacy. But what’s needed is the acceptance of this technology by the medical community, and that acceptance will take time to achieve.”” I quote Mike Adams and naturalnews.com

7 Ways Phosphatidylcholine Can Benefit Your Health!

7 Ways Phosphatidylcholine Can Benefit Your Health!

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a type of Phosphoglyceride Phospholipid. Here is the Biological Function and Health Benefits of Phosphatidylcholine:

Aging & Life Extension

The body’s endogenous Phosphatidylcholine levels decline in conjunction with the Aging Process and Phosphatidylcholine (especially when administered via intravenous infusion) may reverse the deterioration of Cell Membranes that ocurs in conjunction with the progression of the Aging Process. Phosphatidylcholine may possess Life Extension potential:

As the body’s Cell Membranes age, they contain less Phosphatidylcholine, and more Cholesterol and sphingomyelin causing them to become less fluid and more rigid.

Phosphatidylcholine 
& Your
Cardiovascular System:

PC (especially when administered via intravenous infusion) may improve the condition of Angina patients and helps to prevent and treat Atherosclerosis. Phosphatidylcholine helps to maintain the elasticity of Blood Vessels.

PC is essential for the formation of Cell Membranes and is essential for the structural and functional integrity of Cell Membranes. Supplemental Phosphatidylcholine enhances the function of Cell Membranes throughout the body and comprises approximately 65% of most Cell Membranes.  Phosphatidylcholine may help to prevent Colitis. Phosphatidylcholine is essential for the initial emulsification of dietary Fats (as a constituent of Bile) prior to their further digestion.

Phosphatidylcholine may prevent and dissolve Gallstones and Kidney Stones by emulsifying their constituent Lipids. Phosphatidylcholine inhibits the ability of Alcohol (ethanol) and Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) to cause Gastric Ulcers.  Phosphatidylcholine may reduce Intestinal Permeability (it has been demonstrated to reduce bacterial translocation).  PC also inhibits the ability of Alcohol to damage the Pancreas ; PC inhibits the ability of Alcohol (ethanol) to cause Pancreatitis.

Phosphatidylcholine (especially delayed release form of Phosphatidylcholine – 6,000 mg per day) may alleviate Ulcerative Colitis.

PC may help prevent age-related hearing loss.

Phosphatidylcholine 
& Your
Metabolism

Phosphatidylcholine is essential for the correct metabolism of Cholesterol
Phosphatidylcholine helps to keep Cholesterol soluble ; may inhibit the absorption of dietary Cholesterol ; keeps Cholesterol isolated from the lining of Arteries ; prevents the oxidation of LDL Cholesterol ; is an essential component of High Density Lipoproteins (HDL) – it comprises 22% of HDL ; is an essential component of  Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) ;

Phosphatidylcholine may help to prevent and treat Cirrhosis (including alcholic Cirrhosis).  Phosphatidylcholine may help to prevent and treat Fatty Liver.  Phosphatidylcholine is essential for the detoxification functions of the Liver.

The Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid form of Phosphatidylcholine (1,800 mg per day) may be beneficial for the treatment of most forms of Hepatitis.

Phosphatidylcholine 
& Your
Nervous System

Phosphatidylcholine may prevent Age Associated Memory Impairment ; Phosphatidylcholine may prevent the further deterioration of Mental Function in Alzheimer’s Disease patients ; improves Concentration and Memory in Dementia patients and may increase Acetylcholine levels in Dementia patients ; may improve mental performance in Down’s Syndrome patients; may improve Learning ability ; may improve Memory (especially in persons with existing Memory impairment and in those with diminished Acetylcholine levels).

Phosphatidylcholine nourishes Myelin Sheaths surrounding Neurons.
Neurons require large amounts of Phosphatidylcholine for their repair and maintenance. Phosphatidylcholine is also required for the growth of new Neurons.

Phosphatidylcholine 
& Your
Respiratory System

Phosphatidylcholine may alleviate some of the damage inflicted on Lung tissues by cigarette smoking

Phosphatidylcholine & Fertility

Phosphatidylcholine may alleviate Male Infertility – Phosphatidylcholine is a component of the Seminal Plasma component of Semen

Phosphatidylcholine & Skin

Phosphatidylcholine controls the transfer of endogenous chemicals into Skin Cells and may improve the visual appearance of dull Skin.

Maximum Dosage

Usually we use 500mg 2-4tablets / day in therapy.
The maxium safe dosage for Phosphatidylcholine is 30,000 mg (30 grams) per day !

Bioavailability

Orally-administered Phosphatidylcholine is very well absorbed. Up to 90% is absorbed when it is consumed with meals. Oral doses of Phosphatidylcholine result in serum Choline elevations with significant elevation persisting for as long as 12 hours.

Most orally-ingested supplemental Phosphatidylcholine is utilized by the Liver (usually for Liver repair). Very little Phosphatidylcholine reaches the blood stream, other tissues and other organs of the body. This can limit the effectiveness of oral Phosphatidylcholine. Intravenous administration of Phosphatidylcholine circumvents this Liver domination of Phosphatidylcholine

A Closer Look at the Working of Antioxidants in Cancer Patients

A Closer Look at the Working of Antioxidants in Cancer Patients

Antioxidants are always debated as to their merits in the treatment of cancer patients. Especially when people are on chemotherapy this question is often asked, so let’s have a closer look at the working of antioxidants and also their merits and exceptions for use.

Antioxidants Anticancer Mechanisms:

  1. Antioxidants inhibit protein kinase c, restraining tumour cell division and proliferation
  2. Antioxidants inhibit oncogene expression, genes that give rise to tumours
  3. Antioxidants promote differentiation by altering growth factors. Undifferentiated cells depart (in appearance) from the highly recognizable (differentiated) cells of the tissue of origin
  4. Antioxidants block destruction imposed by free radicals, protecting vital tissue from damage

Exceptions & Contraindications for the use of Antioxidants

Three agents, classified as antioxidants, have been shown to decrease the effectiveness of radiation or chemotherapy in vivo (1) :

  1. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) reduced the therapeutic effect of anthracycline –type chemotherapy agents (doxorubicin and bleomycin), which kill cells by generating oxygen radicals. Alkylating agents (such as cisplatin) and hormonal therapies were not affected
  2. Beta-carotene decreased the effectiveness of antimetabolites (5-fluoruracil and methotrexate). Conversely, beta carotene increased the efficacy of radiotherapy, as well as alkylating agents, anthracycline, and platinum chemotherapy agents
  3. Tangeretin (a flavanoid found in citrus fruit) reduced the chemotherapeutic effect of platinum compounds such as cisplatin and carboplatin. Tangeretin interfered with tamoxifen, a nonsteroidal antiestrogen used to treat estrogen-dependent cancers.

High Dose Antioxidants
During Chemotherapy
& Radiation

Studies have demonstrated that antioxidant vitamins can enhance the efficacy of certain chemotherapeutic agents on tumor cells in culture (2). Antioxidant vitamins could be an important adjuvant to standard treatment of human cancers (3)

An in vivo study : antioxidant vitamins could enhance the cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of paclitaxel and carboplatin on non-small cell lung cancer. (4)  The human non-small cell lung cancer cell line H-520 was treated with a mixture of the antioxidant vitamins c,e, and beta carotene and paclitaxel and carboplatin, both individually and in combination of various doses in different sequences.

The apoptosis achieved was as follows :

  • antioxidant vitamins : 15%
  • paclitaxel and carboplatin 40%
  • paclitaxel treatment 24 hours prior to carboplatin treatment caused 54% apoptosis
  • cells pretreated with an antioxidant vitamin mixture immediately before treatment with paclitaxel and carboplatin 70% apoptosis
  •  pretreated with the antioxidant mixture 24hrs prior to treatment with paclitaxel, then followed 24hrs later by treatment with carboplatin 89% apoptosis

Some leaders in the field endorse pulse therapy as the appropriate means of administering nutritional support concurrent with toxic treatments.    Re-entering the supplementation 2-3 days after the large chemotherapeutic bolus allows time for a massive cancer kill followed by a period of rebuilding (5).     If using conventional treatment, this dosing allows the body the full effects of conventional treatments, plus the benefit of an antioxidant program a few days later.

Another study on advanced colorectal cancer (6) using 12 patients using 750mg vit e 2 weeks prior to chemotherapy and radiation showed that short term supplementation increased cd4:cd8, enhanced T-cell to produce T helper 1 cytokines, interleukin 2 and interferon gamma.Dietary vit e may be used to improve the immune functions in patients with advanced cancer.

Another systematic review (7) evaluated the efficacy of CoQ10 for improved tolerability of cancer treatments. The results suggested that coq10 provides some protection against cardiotoxicity or liver toxicity during cancer treatement.

A landmark paper by block (8) on the use of antioxidants and cancer chemotherapy published in 2007 is summarized as follows :

  • 19 trials, randomized, concurrent with chemotherapy
  • survival or response was reported
  • glutathione, melatonin, vit A, Vit C, Vit e, NAC, egalilic, Mix were used
  • none reported decrease in efficacy of chemotherapy
  • many reported :
    • increased survival time
    • tumor response
    • fewer toxicities

The Chemotherapeutic
Effects of High Dose
Intravenous Vit C :

  1. Remember at high doses, iv vit c is a pro-oxidant not an antioxidant
  2. Immune system enhancement
  3. H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) production, most tumor cells are catalase deficient and cannot metabolize this (9)
  4. Apoptosis (increase in p53, p21, cellular Ca, and a decrease in mitochondrial membrane potential and activation of caspase 3. (10)
  5. Hypoxia Inducible Factor (11)
  6. Anti-angiogenic effect (12)
  7. Generation of 3-mercapto propionaldehyde (13)
  8. Other possible mechanisms : reduction of igf1 (14), inhibition of cox2 (15), intracellular red-ox-signal transduction-gene expression, collagen-extracellular matrix encapsulation (16)

Vitamin D – Are You Getting Enough?

Are You Getting Enough Vitamin D ?

The majority of people are deficient in vitamin D. The reasons for this include the use of sunscreens, spending more time indoors, and less efficient absorption of vitamin D as we age. Darker skin and living at higher latitudes also increases the risk. People at extreme risk include house or office bound people, those with renal disease, persistent musculoskeletal pain; osteoporotic people, inflammatory bowel dis- ease or celiac disease and people who are on anticonvulsants. The best measure of vitamin D levels is 25 hydroxy vitamin D. Deficiency is less than 20 ng/ml, normal levels are above 32 ng/ml, but optimal levels are in the range of 60 ng/ml. The old dose recommendation of 400 IU/day of vitamin D is not sufficient to prevent fractures in the elderly. Doses of above 1000 IU (especially if older than 50) are required to prevent deficiency. Doses of up to 2000 IU have been proven safe. (1)

Vitamin D is important for calcium absorption, immunity, avoidance of autoimmune reactions, mainte- nance of weight and blood pressure, prevention of arterial calcifications and also for the prevention of cancer.

Michael Holick of Boston University says “sensible sun exposure (usu- ally 5-10 minutes of exposure of the arms and legs or the hands, arms, and face, 2 or 3 times per week) and increased dietary and supplemental vitamin D intakes are reasonable approaches to guaran- tee vitamin D sufficiency.” (2)

Robert Heaney of Creighton University claims that it would require 2600 international units of

Oral vitamin D3 to ensure that 97.5% of older women achieve optimal

vitamin D levels.Sunscreen lotions block the vitamin

D producing UV-B rays and allows the deeper penetrating UV-A rays to reach the skin. Mortality rates due to malignant melanoma increased after the initiation of campaigns to promote the use of sunscreen lotion blockers in the 1970s. It is important for the skin to be exposed to UV-B sun rays, which help in the production of vitamin D naturally. Sunscreen lotions applied to the face though will protect from premature wrinkling. Safer ways to protect the skin from sun damage and skin cancer includetopical or oral anti- oxidant supplements. For example topical vitamin C and E combined with green tea extract, ferulic acid or other antioxidants may be an op- tion to prevent skin aging and skin cancer. (4)

Here are some of the
health benefits of
Vitamin D

Higher vitamin D levels have been associated with a lower risk of dying from all causes over a 7 year period, as well as specifically from cardio- vascular disease. (5)

“This prospective cohort study demonstrates for the first time, to our knowledge, that low 25- hydroxyvitamin D and 1.25-dihydroxy vitamin D levels are associated with increased risk in all-cause mortality compared with patients with higher vitamin D levels”

Vitamin D has been linked to the prevention of breast cancer. (6)

The conclusion of this pooled analysis of vitamin D and the prevention of breast cancer was that the intake of 2000 IU/d of vitamin D3, and, when possible, very moderate exposure to sunlight, could raise serum 25(OH)D to 52 ng/ml, a level associated with reduction by 50% in the incidence of breast cancer, according to observational studies.

For women already diagnosed with breast cancer, vitamin D may slow the progression of the disease. In 2006, researchers at the Imperial College of London.(7) Vitamin D levels were significantly higher in the women with early-stage disease than in women whose breast cancer had progressed to a more advanced stage.

In August 2007 researchers at the University of California reported that an estimated 250 000 cancers of the colon and 350 000 breast cancer cases could be prevented worldwide each year with vitamin D supplementation. They recommended doses of 2000 IU/d for a meaningful reduction in breast cancer.(8)

Studies show more
links between
vitamin D &

Multiple Sclerosis. (9)

Children later diagnosed with multiple sclerosis had far lower levels of vitamin D than other youngsters, Canadian researchers reported in studies showing more links be- tween low vitamin D and disease. Other studies show that adults who live in northern latitudes, who get less sun exposure, may have a higher risk of multiple sclerosis. They also support a growing body of studies that link low vitamin D with disease, including breast and colon cancer, heart disease, diabetes and tuberculosis.

Evidence suggests that vitamin D helps lower blood pressure, reduces inflammation and boosts the immune system. Vitamin D acts as an immune modulator. In multiple sclerosis, there are many lines of evidence that immune cells are not regulated properly, and one of the things that influences that balance is vitamin D. Interestingly, Canadians have one of the highest rates of multiple sclerosis in the world. In Canada for 6 months of the year the sun is not intense enough to manufacture vita- min D in the skin.

Low levels of vitamin D are also linked to cardiovascular challenges. (10)

There is an increased incidence of peripheral arterial disease in individuals who have low vitamin D, a new study has found. After examining the data, the study authors found that there was a greater prevalence of peripheral arterial disease in subjects with the lowest levels of vita- min D compared to subjects with the highest levels. For each 10 ng/ml decrease in vitamin D level, the risk for peripheral arterial disease increased by 29 percent.

Vitamin D Could Anti-Age You! (11)

New evidence suggests that high levels of vitamin D has a strong correlation with increased leukocyte telomere length. This is important for one’s health and longevity. Leukocytes (white blood cells) are the backbone of the body’s immune system. Like all cells, leukocytes contain our chromosomes, which consist of dna and associated proteins. Telomeres are tiny terminal segments at each end of the dna molecule. They serve a vital role by protecting dna from damage during cell division.

Telomeres also prevent the ends of dna molecules from joining to each other to form loops, or from joining end-to end with the dna in other chromosomes-disastrous scenarios both. By extending the length of the dna strands with their genetically blank material, they give the enzymes enough space to work with in replicating the genetically useful material all the way to its end, thus preserving every last gene. Were it not for this protective action, some of that material would be lost in each replication, resulting in deterioration of cell function, and of one’s health.

Telomere length decreases in cells as we age, ultimately resulting in aging of the cell, and eventually no further cell division. A ribonucleo protein telomerase, whose function is to extend the length of telomeres is only found in appreciable amounts in sex cells, stem cells and UNFORTUNATELY cancer cells. Extending telomere length has huge potential as an anti-aging tool in preserving the cellular and dna health.

Recent research has demonstrated that those who receive high amounts of vitamin D during childhood have a lower risk of developing type 1 diabetes later on in life, the greater the amount of vitamin D, the great- er the benefit. (12)

Type 1 diabetes comes about due to the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas being destroyed by our own immune system, starting early in childhood.

Vitamin D and brain function

Because of the vitamin D receptors in the brain, it has been discovered that vitamin D plays a very important role in maintaining and achieving a healthy mind. What is known also is that low vitamin D levels have been implicated to increase depression in the elderly. This information is useful because depression can potentially be treated in the future with vitamin D rather than with dangerous psychotropic medications. (12)

Vitamin D – a new pain killer?

Women who get the right amount of vitamin D are less likely to suffer from chronic widespread pain, according to a new study in the annals of rheumatic diseases. Vitamin D is actually a hormone that is intimately involved with bone and immune system health. In addition to promoting normal bone development, there is evidence (as outlined above), that getting enough vita- min D helps protect against multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and certain cancers. Studies have shown that many people suffering from chronic pain have low vitamin D levels and that supplementing with vitamin D can relieve certain types of pain. (13)

Good food sources of vitamin D include:

Egg yolks, fortified foods, and oily fish such as salmon and her- ring. For most people supplementing though with 1000-2000 IU is the way to go. Suggested is to check your levels. Personally I am finding in my practice that more than 70% of my clients are deficient in vitamin D and require supplementation. It is my belief that this critical vitamin can no longer be overlooked or underestimated!

ANTI-AGING

Although we naturally produce NAD+ it, like most things, it reduces with age. This amazing molecule is mostly regarded for its effect on aging and is considered the closest we’ve gotten to a fountain of youth. Intravenous use of NAD+ activates enzymes in the bloodstream called sirtuins which promotes the good aspects of your genes which facilitates one to stay healthier for longer, reducing the side effects of aging.

NAD+ Treatment Protocol: 2 Hour Infusion of 250mg NAD+

Intravenous NAD+ Therapy

Improve Concentration & Memory with Phosphatidylserine

Improve Concentration & Memory with Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine, or PS for short, belongs to a special category for fat-soluble substances called phospholipids. It is a natural compound that is found in the membranes of all the body’s cells, where it is essential for normal functioning. PS is especially highly concentrated in brain cells, where it helps regulate neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers that carry nerve impulses to and from the brain.

Role as a supplement :

PS may be helpful in supporting mental function. Studies indicate that taking supplemental PS may improve concentration and memory in people suffering from age-related memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease

Evidence of efficacy :

Most of the research with PS has been done in Europe, where researchers report that taking 300mg a day can significantly improve memory and cognitive function (the ability to think, reason, and concentrate) among people who have suffered a decline in their normal mental abilities.    The best results have been found when people were given PS in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Although mental-function tests show significant improvements in Alzheimer’s patients, researchers caution that it’s generally not enough to make a real difference in the ability to function on a day-to-day basis.

In one study of
51 subjects over 71 years of
age, those given PS for 12
weeks showed improvements in…

Less research has been done on the benefit of PS among people suffering from normal age-related memory loss, but it is thought to be helpful. PS has not, however, been shown to improve a young, healthy person’s ability to think or remember facts. In contrast, older people seem to benefit from the supplements. In one study of 51 subjects over 71 years of age, those given PS for 12 weeks showed improvements in their abilities to maintain concentration and to recall names of familiar people, the location of misplaced objects, and details from the previous day and past week, and also improvements in their ability to concentrate. Follow-up studies showed that the benefits may last for several months after PS supplementation stops.

Sources :

Originally PS was extracted fromcattle brains, but the scare over mad cow disease had researchers  scrambling for a new source.     PS now comes from soy, which is a natural rich source.      At least one study found PS from soy to be just as effective as that extracted from cow’s brains.
PS is found in only trace amounts in a typical diet, with lecithin providing very small amounts.     However the body manufactures what it needs from phospholipid building blocks.

Forms and usual dosage :

PS is available in capsule form and as a chewing gum.    The recommended dosage is 300mg a day, divided into three doses, for 3-4 weeks.     Once improvement is noted, a maintenance dose of 100mg/day is recommended.    Capsules typically provide 100mg each, whereas 2 pieces of gum provide about 85mg/d

Added benefit of PS :

It lowers cortisol and helps with adrenal hormone balance!

Potential problems :

No side effects associated with PS have been reported, although one expert has suggested that taking PS at night may affect sleep.

Look for PS derived from soy in capsule form.    It takes at least 6 or more pieces of gum a day to deliver the amount of PS found in 3 capsuls of 100mg
