Elderberry Extract and H1N1 Infection

A recent research study has given new scientific evidence to the long-held empirical belief that elderberries possess antiviral activities.

The research involved a specific, reproducible elderberry extract developed by HerbalScience Group LLC, and succeeded in identifying key chemical components of the extract that inhibited in vitro infection and were shown to bind directly to Human Influenza A (H1N1) virus particles. The binding blocked the ability of the viruses to enter host cells, and thereby effectively preventing H1N1 infection in vitro. Read the entire article.

Purchase Elderberry Extract in an encapsulated formula, Elderberry Defense, or in a children's chewable, Elderberry Plus.

No H1N1 Vaccine for Doctors' Families

Last week Dr. Mercola shared two videos on his site. One from CNN. Another from FOX Chicago. Both interviewing Dr. Mehmet Oz of the The Dr. Oz Show. In both videos Dr. Oz recommends people get the H1N1 vaccine. Then he “winks,”admitting neither his wife nor his four children will be getting the controversial injection.

Dr. Oz acknowledges the risks of paralysis and death (as seen in the 1976 swine flu campaign) but still recommends children and pregnant women get the vaccine.

He also relates how he believes his children already contracted the virus last spring and recovered at home. Yet he stresses that your kids should be immunized.

Most people are aware of the growing evidence demonstrating that vaccines not only make people more susceptible to contracting the swine flu virus – they also increase your risk of suffering severe side effects. Read the entire article.

Another doctor in this news video, Dr. Kent Holtorf, an expert of infectious diseases, says he will not give the vaccine to his children, relating risks for autism and warnings for those with CFS and FM, along with risks for pregnant women.

Antibiotic or Silver?

An antibiotic kills a half-dozen different disease organisms. But because the antibiotic attacks the bacteria directly, and because bacteria adapt very well, they mutate to over-come the antibiotic. So every time an antibiotic is used, it becomes less effective for the next time it is needed.

But silver kills over 650 disease causing organisms, and it can do so every time. No resistant strains develop with the use of silver. Researchers speculate that this is because silver does not attack the microbe directly like an antibiotic does. It decomposes the enzyme microorganisms rely on to breathe-they can't mutate to counterattack silver's approach.

Another problem with antibiotics is that they kill beneficial enzymes while attacking the bad ones; pharmaceutical antibiotics can't distinguish between good and bad enzymes. This is why the immune system is especially weak after a round of antibiotics, and why yeast infections are much more likely after taking antibiotics.

Silver, however, doesn't destroy beneficial enzymes because they are very different from the enzymes of single-celled life which silver targets. Silver is nontoxic. Also, colloidal silver doesn't interact or interfere with other medicine being, taken.

Finally, antibiotics only affect bacteria. Silver disables bacteria, viruses, fungi, and all other disease causing organisms.

Medicine Catching Up With Bible

From Creation Moments

Proverbs 3:7-8 - Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.

For thousands of years the Bible has taught that there is a link between spiritual health and physical health. When rationalism came along, many sought to deny the spiritual aspect of humans. For them, the spiritual and the material have nothing to do with each other.

Even medicine was, and still is, taught and practiced by many without any consideration of humans' spirituality. In one survey, only 20 percent of doctors reported that spirituality and healing ever came up during their medical education.

According to several surveys, that rationalistic view is now beginning to change. These surveys include a 1996 poll of family physicians, a 1997 poll of HMO professionals and a 1987 survey of Americans. Now, 87 percent of the American public believe that prayer and other religious practices help in the treatment of people who are ill.

Most surprising, 99 percent of all physicians polled believe these things help. Forty-one percent of the American public polled said that their ill health had been improved or even cured because of personal prayer. It is not out of place, according to 74 percent of Americans, for doctors to begin a discussion of a patient's spiritual needs as part of the patient's treatment.

It's not surprising to learn that the Bible was right thousands of years before modern medicine learned that spiritual health and physical health are related. But it is nice to see this area of science finally catching up with the Bible.

Prayer: I praise You, dear Father, because You have shared Your wisdom with us in the Bible. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

What Is Colloidal Silver?

People have long known that silver can be used as a purifying and preserving agent. In ancient Greece and Rome, people used silver containers to keep liquids fresh. Early American pioneers put silver dollars in bottles of milk to prevent spoilage. Laboratory workers placed silver dimes in petri dishes to sterilize them.

Today, more than half of the world's airlines use silver water filters because they protect against waterborne diseases like dysentery. NASA uses a silver water-purification system in its space shuttles. Silver is sometimes used in place of chlorine to purify swimming pool water.

And since the turn of the century, people have been using silver in colloidal form as an antibiotic treatment. In fact, until 1938, colloidal silver was considered a mainstream antibiotic treatment. But production was costly with early technology, and so the use of colloidal silver died out.

Colloidal silver is a complicated name for a simple chemistry project. A colloidal system refers to superfine particles suspended in water. We all recognize silver as a precious metal. So with colloidal silver, tiny particles of silver are electro-colloidally suspended in deionized water. The silver particles and the water are dispersed within and bound to each other by an electric current. This means that each of the silver particles is given a positive charge so they repel each other and the water around them, leaving them suspended in the water. The silver particles are not dissolved, nor should they sink. They remain suspended in the solution, held there by the electric charge.

Regarding The Dangers of Soy

Being a vegetarian for almost 30 years, I often get emails with articles about the dangers of using soy products. I'm not convinced of the validity of the sources for information on soy being so bad for us.

First of all, not all vegetarians consume massive amounts of soy.  Personally I rarely have it.  We get about 3 packages of tofu a year when I get in the mood for a stir-fry.  I used to use Tofu Moo soy milk for years in place of milk, but I never drank it and rarely eat cold cereal, so the pint jar we made lasted for over a week.  I switched to other "milk" sources many years back such as Almond Milk and currently Coconut Milk.

My husband like burgers, so we've had some from soy and some from other sources such as eggplant.  I think it's a matter of how much soy is consumed and I do know that many foods are now laced with it which is another reason to read labels on EVERYTHING you buy, not just for soy, but sugar, white flour, MSG, etc.

There's a lot of information out there and yet soybeans were cultivated 4,000 years ago in China and tofu has been eaten for thousands of years.  Again the quantity is an issue.  Other nations don't consume the immense portions of food Americans do.

There are nutritious properties in this bean, but I believe the real dangers are in the isolates they're making out of soy for all the meat substitutes that also have other questionable ingredients in them. The supplement industry also took off on the bandwagon related to hormones.

Some articles warn of the dangers of oxalates in soy. If you're going to eliminate oxalates from the diet, here's a very long list of foods to eliminate along with the soybeans.

Oligosaccharides are mentioned as a concern but they are in many beans, not just soy. Beans have always been touted as an excellent source of protein and fiber and most cultures of the world use beans as a main dietary component. Oligosaccharides are also in human breast milk ... but the dairy industry would be in favor of avoiding breast feeding while recommending infant formulas instead.

Soy does have hormonal properties, which is one of the concerns mentioned, since they contain goitrogens, meaning they can cause a goiter. Here we certainly need to mention balanced diet. Any food can be dangerous if it's consumed in large quantities, even water!

If you're going to drop goitrogenic foods, you're going to have to dump the cruciferous veggies also - they have the exact same property.  Remove these from your diet:  broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, rutabagas, turnips, brussel sprouts, and greens like mustard and turnip.

I'd love to know who's funding the research ... but regardless, as a protein source I'll take soy any day rather than the meats that can be sold with cancerous tumors intact and the dairy foods that have antibiotics and hormones enough to turn children into an obesity statistic before they're even out of school, and render antibiotic drugs useless for a life-threatening problem.

Update Dec. 2010
The BBC reports on a study done in Indonesia but says it's not conclusive that soy is the issue related to dementia since formaldehyde is used as a preservative in that country.

Another report from the Cornucopia Institute has some recent research.

My personal thoughts on the subject .....

Vegetable Protein Lowers Blood Pressure

A new study shows that an amino acid known as glutamic acid, which is found in greater amounts in vegetable protein, is associated with lower blood pressure.

This builds on other research linking higher intake of vegetable protein to lower blood pressure.

Researchers say the finding may also help explain in more detail why the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet works at lowering high blood pressure. The DASH diet is low in sodium and high in vegetables, whole grains, and beans, which are also rich sources of vegetable protein.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and glutamic acid was the most common amino acid found in the study. It accounted for 23% of the protein in people who were mainly vegetable protein eaters, and 18% in who were mainly animal protein eaters. Read the entire article.

Healing Power of Good Relationships

You know what it feels like when love is first blossoming; you find that it is almost impossible to not smile, you feel as if you are walking on air and you wake up early each day feeling fantastic. To be in love feels good. Having close relationships and intimate ties to other human beings is not only good for our mental and emotional health; it is also good for our physical health as well.

This is a fact which nobody can deny; there is too much evidence which proves the point. There have been many different types of studies conducted, in communities all over the world which indicate the healing powers of love and friendship.

One study which is often cited relates to the town of Roseto in Pennsylvania, which was up until relatively recently inhabited by immigrants from a small town in Southern Italy. This community of Italian-Americans in Roseto remained very close in terms of family ties and traditions, maintaining their cultural values and religious beliefs through several generations. The inhabitants of this small town experienced significantly less heart disease than in either of the two similar sized neighboring tons. They also lived significantly longer.

Studies on Olive Leaf Extract

From Creation Moments

We are extracting some powerful medicines from plants from all over the world. The olive is one plant that may hint at some of the extraordinary abilities that God may have built into some of the extinct plants [due to the Great Flood].

We've all heard about the healthy effects of olive oil. But it turns out that the olive leaf, too, provides some very healthy extracts.

One extract, oleuropein, found in all parts of the olive plant, has been shown to delay the formation of poisons formed by mold growing in nut meal. It can also stop the growth of one type of staphylococcus.

Other studies suggest that this extract may relax the smooth muscles of artery walls, temporarily lowering blood pressure.

In addition, it may help the heart function better and inhibit the formation of clogging plaques in the blood stream.

Other extracts from the olive leaf have been shown not only to be antioxidants, but also to slow the production of poisons or even destroy certain bacteria.

5 Ways Vitamin D Could Save Your Life

Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin, and it has a lot of sunny benefits, but most Americans aren't getting them because they aren't getting enough of it.

Between 50 percent and 75 percent of Americans get suboptimal levels of vitamin D, according to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Now a committee at the Institute of Medicine is meeting to determine whether the recommended daily intake of vitamin D should be increased. ABC medical contributor Dr. Marie Savard came on "Good Morning America" today to offer five ways vitamin D can aid your health and tell you how to get more of it.

Why People Are Vitamin D Deficient


Nature gave us only one good source of vitamin D, and that is the sun. We are meant to absorb vitamin D from the sun through our skin.

When we lived closer to the equator and worked outdoors, we were OK. But that is not the case today. And food is not a good source of vitamin D, not even fortified food.

Five Ways Vitamin D Can Save Your Life

Promotes Weight Loss
You need vitamin D to effectively lose weight. Your insulin works better, and vitamin D helps you lose belly fat. Diabetes is also related to low vitamin D levels.

Reduces Risk of Death
Your overall mortality is reduced.

Fewer Bone Fractures
Without vitamin D, calcium can't be absorbed. But if you get enough vitamin D, it can help you avoid osteoporosis, bone fractures and falling, which is a cause of morbidity among the elderly.

Reduces Risk of Heart Disease
Vitamin D improves blood flow by relaxing the blood vessels and lowering blood pressure.

Helps Fight Cancer
Vitamin D improves the functioning of your immune system, and that helps fight cancer.

Hope For Autoimmune & Organ Rejection

From Creation Moments

Unborn Babies Protect Themselves

When someone receives a donated organ they must take powerful drugs to prevent rejection. That's because the body's immune system identifies the implanted organ as "not me." It then assumes that the invader is dangerous and must be destroyed.

That brings us to a puzzling mystery that scientists have been trying to solve: Why doesn't a mother's body recognize her unborn baby as being foreign to her body? After all, carrying genetic information from the mother and father, the unborn baby is genetically unique.

Some scientists theorize that the placenta is a physical barrier between the baby and the mother's immune system. Others believe that the unborn baby somehow hides from the mother's immune system. A third theory is that the mother's immune system is somehow forced to tolerate the unborn child.

New research from scientists at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia, supports this third alternative. Researchers have shown that the placenta produces an enzyme (IDO) that works to suppress immune cells.

In effect, the unborn child puts together just the right enzyme to keep mom's immune system from attacking it. Scientists say that this discovery may lead to new drugs to treat autoimmune diseases and organ rejection.

This system or a similar system had to be fully operational in the first creature for successful pregnancies and births. It could not gradually evolve. This fact and the wisdom of this system provides more evidence of an all wise, all-powerful Creator of every form of life and all that exists.

FluMist Vaccine Has Live Swine Flu

The first doses of the H1N1 swine flu vaccine are NOW arriving at clinics around the United States, and many people are lining up to get their vaccine. Is the media accurately informing the public what they are taking?

Most Americans do not realize that the early batches of the H1N1 swine flu nasal vaccine contain live swine flu. If you are trying to avoid the swine flu do you really think that it is a good idea to have live swine flu injected up your nose?

Many health experts are expressing a great concern about the safety of FluMist, and many hospitals are rejecting this nasal spray vaccine all together. Several Denver area hospitals are rejecting the FluMist swine flu vaccine because "they don’t want to endanger patients".

The media reports that the live swine flu within the vaccines has been "weakened", but according according to Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, between 10 million and 100 million swine flu viral particles will be forcefully injected into the nostrils when FluMist is administered to a patient.

Dieting and Lifetime Weight Management

Used With Permission From A Better Way Newsletter by Dr. Duane Weed

A study published in the October 17, 1999 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reports that Americans are fatter than ever and are getting fatter at an alarming rate. The study, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from 1991 to 1998, shows that one in five American adults is now considered obese. This is a drastic increase from just 10 years ago when one in eight Americans were obese.

This development has prompted the Centers for Disease Control to classify obesity in the U.S. as an epidemic. Being overweight increases risks for a number of serious health problems including heart disease and stroke, diabetes, cancer, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis and gallbladder disease. Heart disease, diabetes and cancer are the three biggest killers of American men and women, so the problem is not just a cosmetic one!

According to the JAMA study, 300,000 deaths in the United States each year can be attributed to being overweight. Compare this to the 430,000 deaths each year caused by smoking and you will see that, with the exception of quitting smoking, there is probably no single preventative measure that can guarantee your health more than maintaining your ideal weight.

ARE YOU OBESE?
Obesity is determined by a formula called the body mass index (BMI), defined as your weight in kilograms divided by your height in meters squared (BMI = kg/m2). A BMI of 19 to 24.9 is considered a "normal" weight. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight and 30 or above is considered obese.

FIRST RULE: DON'T DIET!
If you are overweight, you may have already discovered that starvation diets are not the answer. Weight may be lost initially but they rarely help in the long run. Starvation slows the body's metabolism as it learns to expend energy more efficiently to conserve calories for the next "famine." After a starvation diet we have a tendency to gain even more weight than we took off, and we may find it even harder to lose weight the next time we try.

Foods and Flowers Soothe Stress

Sniffing your way around the local farmer’s market may offer some of nature’s best aromatherapy to reduce stress.

A new study shows that linalool, a floral scented compound found in many foods and flowers such as oranges, grapes, mangos, lemons, basil, and lavender, may suppress stress-related chemical and gene changes in rats.

Inhaling the linalool caused a reduction in the level of stress-induced immune cells, as well as downgrading the activity of more than 100 genes that go into overdrive during stressful situations.

Researchers say inhaling the scents of certain plants has been practiced since ancient times to reduce stress, fight inflammation and depression, and induce sleep, and these results represent some of the first scientific evidence to back up these stress-reducing claims. Read the entire article

Buy 4 Get 1 FREE - $31.80

A natural compound, xylitol looks and tastes like sugar. It is found naturally in many common fruits and vegetables, and it is even produced by our bodies during metabolism.

And it may actually help improve the health of your teeth!

XYLITOL PEPPERMINT MINTS

$1 OFF - $8.95

Xylitol has also been shown to improve dental health. Decades of scientific research and over 1,500 papers have confirmed it. Lactic acid, the most damaging acid for your teeth, is formed by the fermentation of sugar by bacteria. Bacteria cannot ferment xylitol, which results in less tooth-destroying acid and promotes an inhospitable environment for unwanted microorganisms.

XYLITOL SPEARMINT GUM

Buy 4 Get 1 FREE - $31.80
$1 OFF - $6.95

Unlike most sugar molecules, which have a six-carbon “hexose” unit, xylitol is a five-carbon “pentitol” sugar. Thanks to its distinctive structure, bacteria cannot utilize xylitol for energy. Its chemical configuration also inhibits the body’s ability to fully metabolize it, making it the perfect sweetener for those concerned with blood sugar balance.
