E.coli Without Antibiotics

The threat of E.coli contamination is enough to bring even the strongest industries to a complete halt. Infection can result in respiratory illness, urinary tract infections and pneumonia, as well as other illnesses, and all without anyone suspecting anything. Yet, one supplement has been found to have an inhibitory effect on E.coli without the harmful effects of antibiotics: Acidophilus.1

Falling under the category of a probiotic, acidophilus, or Lactobacillus acidophilus, is beneficial bacteria that lives in the gastrointestinal tract, which is implied by its name, meaning acid loving. While most connotations with bacteria are negative at best, acidophilus is far from it, as it in fact protects the body against foreign invaders by producing natural antibiotics. It has also been shown to produce enzymes to aid the body's digestion of proteins and fats.

The body requires a large percentage of beneficial bacteria, as it is estimated that a healthy gut needs at least 85 percent good versus 15 percent bad to maintain good health. And with the number of roles beneficial bacteria play, it's not hard to see why every percent is needed. In addition to digestion, beneficial bacteria aid in the absorption of nutrients, stimulate immune system function, help regulate both bowel activity and liver function, and help produce vitamins K and B.

FDA To Restrict Growing Food

S 510 extends control over all food in the US, violating the fundamental human right to food.

“If accepted [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one’s choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God.”~Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower

Seeing Your Illness With Humor

What would stop you cold in your tracks? Financial ruin, losing your home, the death of your mother, a diagnosis of cancer, a close friend dying, or your spouse being unfaithful. Anyone of these is bad news. But how about all of these at the same time…while recovering from an illness that just paralyzed you from the waist down? I bet that’s not in your Day Planner.

Sally Franz is a remarkable woman, not only has she faced all of the above, but she has written a fantastic new book about it. And the book is FUNNY!

In 2005 she ended up paralyzed from the waist down from a rare auto-immune disease (Transverse Myelitis). It took several years in Physical Rehab to learn to walk without crutches. So she writes a HUMOR book about it, "Scrambled Leggs...A Snarky Tale of Hospital Hooey."

If you've ever had one or many of those "amazing and non-believable" hospital experiences of non-patient care, you'll find it sobering and hilarious. I've only begun reading the promo copy Sally sent me, but I am already enthralled and amazed at the humor one can have while enduring most of life's hardest trials and tribulations.  Laughter is good medicine ... and this book is definitely good natural medicine!

As a motivational speaker to Fortune 500 Companies (such as Intel, SONY, Yahoo! and Texaco-Chevron), a international speaker (3 times guest on the Today Show) and a former stand-up comic in clubs such as Stand-up NY and Caroline’s, Sally knows how to deliver a punch(line).

Sally’s book also has plenty of substance. So whether she is talking about MRIs or misdiagnosis, she has her eye on the goal of overcoming and sharing her secrets. On June 8th she is running a BIG BONANZA BOOK LAUNCH.

If you buy her book on that day Sally will give you for FREE the workbook “Scrambled Life ... 3 Secrets to Getting Your Life Back”, 20 humor posters, 3 e-books, tips, reports and much more as a thank you.  She has free gifts for checking the website out today also.

If you can't wait, you can order it now on Amazon.com.

If you're a "seeing is believing" kind of person, here's a few You Tube videos that she has:

Also, 10% of the profits are going to Operation First Response (Helping Wounded Warriors) and another 10% for the Transverse Myelitis Association, It is a win-win-win. See you at ScrambledLeggs.net.

Pouring on the Pounds with Sodas

If you were on a New York subway last fall, you might have noticed a provocative ad that showed soda being poured from a plastic bottle into a tumbler.

By the time the soda hit the tumbler, it had transformed into fat -- globby, disgusting, yellow-orange human fat, which pooled in the bottom of the glass and burped over the brim.

The headline: 'Are You Pouring on the Pounds?'

The ad struck a chord. New Yorkers couldn't stop talking about it, and it was everywhere in the media. It was, in fact, the first punch landed in what may be a 10-round fight against sugary soda.

We are witnessing the birth of a sticky idea. So three questions: Why did the ad campaign stick? Is it fair? And what would you do next if you were a soda executive?

It's no surprise why the ad stuck: It packed an emotional punch. It abandoned the typical statistico-caloric factoids about soda. Instead, it made you want to vomit.

That's what sticky ideas do -- they make people feel. Change comes from feeling, not facts. Furthermore, the ad is masterfully simple: Sugary soda equals fat. Read the entire article.

Two Types of MS - Treatment Success

New study findings may soon revolutionize multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment and diagnosis.

The study strongly suggests that there are two major types of MS and that a simple blood test can tell one from the other. By itself, that would be a major finding. But that's not all.

One type of MS responds to beta interferon, generally considered the best treatment. The other type does not -- and beta interferon treatment may even make it worse, find Stanford University researcher Lawrence Steinman, MD, and colleagues.

'I'm very excited about some of the implications of this,' Steinman tells WebMD. 'The most important implication is that a simple blood test could tell us who does and does not respond to beta interferon. It could be that about 25% of patients are in the 'do not benefit' group.'

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis


by Steven Horne, RH (AHG)
At one time many people in midwestern states developed goiters from a lack of iodine in their diets.  With the introduction of iodized table salt these problems largely disappeared.  
It's kind of odd that they had to add iodine to salt because natural salts, like the pink Redmond Salt (which is available from NSP) contain iodine.  It is only refined salt that lacks this nutrient. It's sort of like "enriched" white flour—you bleach out all the natural nutrients and then replace them with chemical nutrients.

When most thyroid problems were caused by a lack of iodine, herbs like kelp usually solved the problem.  However, there may be a different cause of many modern thyroid problems.  Especially when you consider that the main cause of low thyroid is now an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

In Hashimoto's, the body produces high levels of antibodies to the enzyme thyroid peroxidase. Thyroid peroxidase is used to synthesize the thyroid hormone, so the immune system is destroying the enzyme that utilizes the iodine.  Interestingly enough, Hashimoto's is more prevalent in the countries which rely heavily on chemical iodine like iodized salt.

Beyond Iodine
I recently acquired two new books written by my good friend and fellow AHG herbalist Matthew Wood, The Earthwise Herbal: A Complete Guide to New World Medicinal Plants and The Earthwise Herbal: A Complete Guide to Old World Medicinal Plants.  In writing about kelp, a standard remedy for hypothyroid problems for many years, Matthew says, "it is likely to disappoint."  He recommends black walnut as a superior remedy.

Black walnut is one of the few inland plants that contains significant amounts of iodine.  In fact, it is the iodine in the hulls that makes the hulls stain things so easily.  I can attest the staining power of black walnut hulls because I remember helping my mom to hull, crack and pick the "meats" out of black walnuts.

But, I digress. Like Matthew, I've found black walnut, and especially the ATC Concentrate Black Walnut, to work where other thyroid remedies have failed. This may be due to the fact that black walnut is one of the remedies that seems to modulate the immune system.

I believe that autoimmune conditions are primarily the result of poor nutrition coupled with toxicity in the tissues. As mentioned last week, other halogens, like chlorine, fluorine and bromine, interferes with iodine metabolism.  So does mercury (and probably other heavy metals), soy and many drugs.

Black walnut is a traditional "blood purifier," meaning it is used to help the body clear toxic conditions.  It is a very effective single remedy in fibromyalgia, which seems to involve low levels and iodine and high levels of toxicity in the tissues.  

Matthew suggests that the thyroid plays a role in purifying the blood. The thyroid secretes into the carotid arteries, which carry blood to the brain.  Matthew says that this helps to purify the blood going to the brain, which helps the hypothalamus regulate metabolism better. He also says that this disinfecting of the blood going into the head helps treat sinus problems, too.

Emotional Issues and Hashimoto's
I wouldn't rule out emotional issues in Hashimoto's either,   especially when you consider that 90% of people with low thyroid are women. One out of five women (a whopping 20%) will develop Hashimoto's by age 75. That just can't be normal.

Years ago, when I was teaching Manager School for Nature's Sunshine, I observed an interesting phenomenon. The school was four days long, and sometimes, when I'd start to get a little tired, I noticed that I was mixing up some of my words.  If I took some thyroid herbs (like Thyroid Activator), I noticed that within minutes I was able to communicate clearly again.

The thyroid is located at the base of the throat, next to the voice box. Oriental cultures suggested that there is an energy center here that has been called the throat chakra, which deals with our ability to communicate.  It is also the link between our chest (home of our heart and emotions) and our head (home of our logic and thinking).  

If feeding and strengthening the thyroid can improve one's ability to communicate (as I experienced firsthand), it's possible that the reverse may be true.  Feeling you are unable to communicate, and more particularly that your feelings are not been listened to and acknowledged, may adversely affect your thyroid. I think many women, in particular, feel that their feelings are not being heard, cherished or appreciated.

Let's also remember that Hashimoto's is an autoimmune condition where the immune system is attacking the thyroid.  To me, this means that Hashimoto's may be a subconscious "attack" on one's own voice.  These issues should be explored when treating this problem and flower essences may definitely be helpful.  I particularly find Larch flower essence and Trumpet Vine flower essence helpful for people who have a hard time expressing their thoughts and feelings.

Looking Beyond the Obvious
The standard NSP remedies for low thyroid, like Thyroid Activator and TS II with Hops are based primarily on the "old school" iodine deficiency issue.  Thyroid Support is a thyroid glandular, which can help rebuild the gland, but even that does not work in many cases.  So, it seems to me that maybe we need to expand our idea of what remedies can work.  

Some of the herbs that have a good long term effects on the thyroid and may be helpful for Hashimoto's thyroiditis are Ho Shou Wu, Saw Palmetto and Ashwaganda (found in Adaptamax and 5-HTP Power)  These herbs have a slow cummulative effect on thyroid function when taken for at least 3-6 months. 

Another remedy you might try is IF-C.  This is an anti-inflammatory remedy that can help cool down an irritated thyroid.  Adaptagens like eleuthero may also have a beneficial effect in this instance.

So, don't feel your options are limited to the "standard" thyroid formulas and remedies.  There are many herbs and formulas that can be used to remove underlying causes of low thyroid function and restore balance.  Consult with a qualified herbalist if you have questions.  

You can also learn more about the thyroid (and iodine) from two of Tree of Light's DVD programs, The Iodine Solution and When Your Thyroid Needs "Kelp."

Engineering Embryos Free of Disease

It takes two to make a baby, or maybe three or four if you're worried about passing on select genetic diseases.

Have scientists discovered a fertility technique to prevent deadly disorders?

Doctors in the United Kingdom announced Tuesday that they had successfully genetically engineered embryos from parents who would have passed on mitochondrial DNA mutations by conceiving the old-fashioned way. The researchers reported the feat in the journal Nature.

'Because of the lack of a viable treatment for these patients, and their families, preventing the transmission of mtDNA [mitochondrial DNA] disease is a priority,' Douglas Turnbull, of the New Castle Institute for Brain Aging and Vitality and colleagues wrote in the article.

Omega 3 Benefits Are Many

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are a form of polyunsaturated fats. These are one of four basic types of fat that the body derives from food. (Cholesterol, saturated fat and monounsaturated fat are the others). Consumption of high amounts of food rich in saturated fats has been associated with degenerative diseases such as heart disease and even cancer.

However, consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3s is actually good for you. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are reported to be beneficial in controlling many metabolic disorders such as cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, psychological disorders, inflammatory conditions (including arthritis), skin disorders and non-insulin-dependent (or type II) diabetes.

Omega-3s are considered “essential” fatty acids because they are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. They must be obtained through the diet or supplementation. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are two important omega-3 fatty acids. Both EPA and DHA are found primarily in cold-water fish. Read entire article.
