Restore Free Speech for Dietary Supplements

From FrankNeudecker.com Blog Site

Many savvy consumers these days ignore the slick and expensive advertising campaigns that routinely misrepresent or stretch the truth about products or services touted on TV, radio, and the Internet. More often, it’s an anecdote or testimonial from a family member or friend about a particular product, service, or experience that influences a consumer’s choice.

There is certainly nothing wrong ethically and morally with relating stories about one’s experiences with foods and dietary supplements. Currently the government prohibits sellers and supplement producers from publicizing individual consumer testimonials about health improvements resulting from the use of certain foods or dietary supplements.

Example: In April 2011, federal agents raided Maxam Nutraceutics, a company that produces and sells nutritional supplements, even though Maxam complied with the FDA’s demands to a T. The FDA first issued a warning letter months earlier about certain posted testimonials, giving the company 15 days to delete the info. That was done, and every effort made under a hired attorney’s advice to satisfy the government agency.

Still the FDA conducted a full-scale raid with almost 80 armed agents at the company’s headquarters, and the owner’s daughter’s home, confiscating everything in sight, from computers to paperwork, products to personal items including the owner’s private invention.

To counter such blatant tyrannical actions, the Testimonial Free Speech Act (H.R. 2908) was recently introduced by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). ... read the entire article.

Health Risks of Too Much Salt

People may be putting down the saltshaker, but they're still feasting on sodium-laden processed food. The result? An increased risk of hypertension, osteoporosis, and more. Here's what consumers—and manufacturers—need to know about the risks associated with the high-sodium foods.

A diet heavy in sodium can cause puffy eyes, headaches, and a craving for calorie-laden drinks in the short run. Over time, it not only sends blood pressure soaring, but may also boost chances of developing stomach problems, osteoporosis and kidney stones. Yet despite decades of government warnings and reams of fresh research about the myriad health hazards of excess sodium, we now eat up to 50 percent more than we did 30 years ago.

Patch Adams Isn't Just a Movie

When we attended the Natural Products Expo in Baltimore, the first event I wanted to see was a speaker named, Patch Adams. I knew he would be inspiring and amazing, besides terrifically funny!

Patch Adams
You probably remember the name Patch Adams from the movie with Robin Williams, but this was the real Patch Adams, the doctor who uses humor and any modality other than drugs that he can to make people well. He created a free hospital over 41 years ago and it's still operating.

He had quite a story to tell. He doesn't own a computer but does reply to EVERY U.S. postal letter he receives. That means he writes 200-600 letters a month by hand. He averages 300 speaking engagements a year. That's astounding enough, but the volume of books he reads in a month's time was also amazing. He's never needed more than 2-5 hours sleep a night since he loves waking up to a wonderful life every day.

His current project is in West Virginia where the Gesundheit Institute (his free hospital) owns 310 acres of land and is building another free clinic open 24/7, and will have a staff of 10 serving the people of West Virginia, in one of the poorest counties in the U.S. The Clinic will provide a model for students and medical professionals to practice medicine with care and compassion amidst a playful, professional team.

A special emphasis will be on prevention, both individual (health behaviors) and institutional (public health). In addition to examination rooms and physician offices, the clinic will have a greenhouse, group kitchen, radiology suite, and arboretum. Read Patch's introduction to the project.

Patch is both a medical doctor and a clown, but he is also a social activist who has devoted 30 years to changing America's healthcare system, a system that he describes as expensive and elitist. He believes that laughter, joy and creativity are an integral part of the healing process and therefore, true health care must incorporate those aspects of life. Doctors and patients in his model relate to each other on the basis of mutual trust and patients receive plenty of time from their doctors. Allopathic doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine will work side by side in Patch's model.

If you think that all sounds like a utopian impossibility, it isn't. Patch and his colleagues practiced medicine at the Gesundheit Institute together in West Virginia that way for 12 years in what Patch refers to as their "pilot project." In that time they saw 15,000 patients without any fees. From that experience onward Patch Adams has devoted his life to the study of what makes people happy. Get more information on Patch Adams and his many humanitarian endeavors, at PatchAdams.org.

Proven Effective Help For Immune Problems

Colloidal silver benefits include reducing exposure to disease-causing agents and can be used as an internal remedy for immune system support.

Silver Shield, a colloidal silver product, has been proven to effectively combat health issues caused by anthrax, yeast, food poisoning, fungal infections of the skin, bacterial infections of the skin, respiratory infections, pink eye and more.

Proven by in vitro testing, the colloidal silver in Silver Shield helps rid the body of invasive microorganisms. This is done when the colloidal silver ingredients disable the enzymes that are metabolizing oxygen for harmful bacteria and viruses.

Many turn to antibiotics to combat invasive microorganisms attacking the immune system. Antibiotics often solve the problem, but can prove harmful in other areas. Most antibiotics attack all bacteria, both good and bad, minimizing the good bacteria found in the colon required for healthy digestion and adequate immune support.

The colloidal silver in Silver Shield benefits the immune system in similar ways antibiotics do. However, because Silver Shield is processed in the kidneys it is likely that it does not affect the population of beneficial bacteria in the colon—keeping the immune and digestive system strong and healthy.

Silver Shield has been tested for safety and effectiveness. It is non-toxic and does not contain any heavy metal contamination that many other colloidal silver supplements do. Nature’s Sunshine observes a strict quality control process to verify the atomic absorption of Silver Shield. As a result, the product delivers fine, particle-sized silver colloids with 99% bioavailability. Many other popular colloidal silver products were tested and deliver only 15-65% colloids with bioavailability.

Boost your immune system with colloidal silver. The quality of Nature’s Sunshine’s Silver Shield product surpasses the market standard for colloidal silver supplements. Give your body the strength it needs to combat the harmful bacteria and viruses we face every day.

Read the research, watch the videos, and make sure you're prepared for this winter.  Add Silver Shield to your home medicine chest and take it along when you travel.

Protein Source - To Fish or Not to Fish

From NaturalNews.com

Pescetarian, Piscatarian, Pescatorian, Pesco-vegetarian, Fishetarian -- No, these are not the names for members of obscure religious sects. These are some of the different terms used for people who do not eat the meat of mammals and birds but do eat fish and shellfish.

Many of the health benefits associated with a vegetarian diet are also obtainable with a pescetarian diet, as it is the absence of meat from commercially-produced livestock (with its high-fat content and chemical additives such as hormones and antibiotics), along with the consumption of nutrient-rich legumes and vegetables, that confers these benefits.

Plant-based diets provide protection against numerous diseases, including the three biggest killers in the U.S.: heart disease, cancer, and strokes. According to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarians have "lower rates of death from ischemic heart disease; ...lower blood cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and prostate and colon cancer" and are less likely than meat-eaters to be obese. A fair argument can be made that these benefits can also be realized by eating a pescetarian diet. Read the entire article.

New Super Food: SaviSeeds

Sacha inchi seeds (also known as the Inca Peanut) are native to the Amazon rainforest and have been cultivated and consumed for centuries in Peru. SaviSeeds are the fruit of sacha inchi plants, herbaceous vines that produce star-shaped green pods which yield edible seeds. Sustainable harvesting makes them even better.

SaviSeeds are rich in nutrients - making them a healthy but indulgent snack. Here's why they are called a superfood:

Omega 3
Sacha inchi seeds are the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon - without having to deal with unpleasant fishy flavors and aftertastes!

Protein
SaviSeeds are an exceptional source of plant-based protein with 8 grams of protein per ounce – more than most nuts and seeds. SaviSeed is a complete protein source which is rich in both essential and non-essential amino acids. This highly digestible protein is very useful in tissue regeneration and muscle development, and it’s easily digestible… no irritation, gas, or acidity.

Tryptophan
This ancient food source is also a particularly abundant source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote a positive mood – containing about 29 mg of tryptophan per gram of protein, which is more than 8 times higher than roasted turkey.

Antioxidants
Sacha inchi seeds have a high concentration of powerful natural antioxidants like Vitamin E, which helps to ward off cardiovascular disease and cancer by protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Gluten-free
All those with gluten intolerances and allergies can also enjoy this nutritious and yummy snack! SaviSeeds are tested and approved to meet international guidelines for gluten free status.

Fiber
A mere one ounce serving of SaviSeed will easily provide you with 5 grams of dietary fiber, which is 20% of recommended daily intake.

Certified Organic
SaviSeeds are organically certified by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), meaning that no chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides or herbicides are used during production. Precautions are taken even during transportation and storage to avoid cross contamination between organic sacha inchi and any crops that may not be organic.

Poop Tells A Lot About Your Health

From your stool you may be able to get clues about your diet, your gastrointestinal health, and even whether your stress, anger, or anxiety levels are too high.

From the moment food enters your mouth, your body embarks on a campaign to turn it into a soupy mush called chyme. Chewing, saliva, peristalsis (the involuntary contractions of gastrointestinal muscles), bacteria, hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes, bile, and other secretions all work to give each meal the consistency of split pea soup. While your digestive cells are absorbing sugars, starches, fats, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, waste products continue traveling down the line. Read the entire article.

Response to New Research on Supplement Usage

A new study published yesterday in the Archives of Internal Medicine titled "Dietary Supplements and Mortality Rate in Older Women" claims that dietary supplements overall are not helpful for increasing longevity in older women. The findings have natural health experts rallying to respond to what they say is a biased and scientifically skewed study on dietary supplements.

How does the industry, which regularly comes across studies such as, "Vitamin D reduces mortality rate by 20 percent," respond to research that paints an entirely different picture of supplements' benefits?

The same way it always does: consumer education—and pointing out precise biases and flaws in the "Dietary Supplements and Mortality Rate in Older Women" study.

"What the researchers and editors seemed to miss is that older women (or men) have a greater risk of death simply because of their age, their greater likelihood of having serious diseases, and their use of multiple drugs, a common cause of illness (from side effects)," said Jack Challem, The Nutrition Reporter.

Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, a holistic physician and coauthor of Real Cause, Real Cure (Rodale, 2011), said the researchers ignored a key point of the study: the fact that women who took supplements before the study were healthier than those who did not.

"One could come to the same conclusion about exercise not being helpful using this same statistical approach," he said. Take for example a study with two control groups: those who exercise and those who do not, but both of which are put on a new exercise program. At the beginning of the study, those who already are exercisers are healthier than those who are not. By cancelling this fact out, and negating the prior health of the exercisers, you can find that exercise is not beneficial, he said. Read the entire article.

U.S. Doctors & Drug Money From Big Pharma

Pharmaceutical firms in the United States are shelling out massive funds for doctors travel and entertainment expenses in hopes of boosting sales of new drugs.

More than 160,000 doctors have received related payments in 2011 already.

The big push includes free samples, hospital detailing, journal ads, gifting, and the sponsoring of continuing medical education, but patients fear this all leads to doctors prescribing popular, money making drugs instead of following standard of care practices .

Pfizer, Eli Lilly, and AstraZeneca top the list of companies also spending far more on "marketing" than on research, with a total estimated $57,000 billion in overall marketing expenditures in just one year in the United States.

Pharmaceutical giants are claiming they are just trying to be open about how they conduct business, but the statements come at a time of intense scrutiny, and after several prosecutions regarding unlawful marketing practices.

In fact, some of these databases were actually set up as part of settlements of federal criminal investigations into the illegal marketing of drugs to doctors. Many companies have not released any data whatsoever, but Lilly and Pfizer combine to have paid out over 90 million dollars. Read the entire article.

But getting enough soluble fiber into the diet can be a problem. Most foods only contain small amounts. Even oat bran is a mere 7 percent soluble fiber.

Urine and Saliva pH Tests at Home

pH is a measure of balance between positively and negatively charged ions in body fluids such as urine, blood, and saliva. A pH number below 7 indicates the body fluid to be on the acidic side. A pH number above 7 indicates an alkaline environment. 7.0 is considered neutral. Your body's pH is considered to be an important indicator of overall health. A body that is not pH balanced is almost impossible to keep healthy, no matter what your lifestyle.

You can test your salivary and urinary pH levels at home with convenient test strips. Read the entire article.

The Best and Worst States for Long-term Care

Geography determines the type of long-term care available to Americans, a new report suggests. The "scorecard" report finds that states vary widely in the services they provide to the elderly, to disabled adults, and to the family caregivers who support them.

"Our intention is that this scorecard will begin a dialogue among key stakeholders so that lagging states can learn from top performers and all states can target improvements where they are most needed," the authors write.

The scorecard is a collaboration between the AARP's Public Policy Institute, the Commonwealth Fund, and the Scan Foundation. Read the entire article.

Children That Can't Swallow Pills

If you've got a child that just can't get a pill down, you'll find it difficult to use natural remedies such as herbs and supplements since they require more capsules or tablets than a synthetic drug. Here's some information on tips to get herbs and supplements in your child.

Antibiotics Killing Off Beneficial Bacteria for Good?

It’s an accepted concept by now that taking antibiotics in order to quell an infection disrupts the personal microbiome, the population of microorganisms that we all carry around in our guts, and which vastly outnumbers the cells that make up our bodies.

But implicit in that concept is the expectation that, after a while — after a course of antibiotics ends — the gut flora repopulate and their natural balance returns.

What if that expectation were wrong?

In a provocative editorial published this week in Nature, Martin Blaser of New York University’s Langone Medical Center argues that antibiotics’ impact on gut bacteria is permanent — and so serious in its long-term consequences that medicine should consider whether to restrict antibiotic prescribing to pregnant women and young children.

Lactose Intolerance - How Much Is Too Much?

Lactose intolerance occurs when the body doesn’t make enough of the enzyme lactase, which digests lactose, the sugar found in milk and other dairy products. Infants produce high levels of lactase in order to digest milk. After weaning, though, lactase levels decrease, meaning that eventually, as people age, many can no longer digest as much lactose.
Although lactose intolerance is viewed as a disorder, about 75% of all people around the globe have some degree of lactase deficiency. Lactose intolerance is much more common among Asians, Hispanics and blacks than in people of Northwest European descent.

Lactose intolerance is actually a misleading term, says Yuri A. Saito-Loftus, MD, MPH, an assistant professor in the Mayo Clinic’s division of gastroenterology and hepatology. “The majority of the world population is lactose intolerant. It’s actually the people who are lactose tolerant that are the minority group.”

LHow much dairy you can eat depends on how much lactase enzyme your body produces, Saito-Loftus says. “That does vary a little bit from individual to individual. We don’t know exactly 100% what controls that. Presumably, it’s genetically determined.” Read the entire article.
