Tylenol Recall-Natural Alternatives

With the recent recall on Tylenol and Motrin products for children and infants, it makes you wonder how safe these products really are, whether for children or adults. I have cautioned my patients for years against using these products because they often mask and slow down the body’s natural healing process. For instance a fever is a healthy response to fighting an infection in the body. If the fever is suppressed with a medicine like Tylenol or Motrin, the body takes longer to fight off the offending bacteria or virus. There are also toxicity issues for the liver and kidneys with using these common over the counter pain killers. There are better, safer natural alternative. Use fish oils as a natural anti-inflammatory for pain and inflammation. Probiotics (good bacteria) are the best preventative medicine for infections as they ward off bad bacteria by crowding them out of the system.

One Food to Eliminate to Decrease Cholesterol

What one food can you eliminate from your diet and see a dramatic reduction in your cholesterol? Sugar is the answer. Whether it is table sugar, glucose, fructose, and/or high fructose corn syrup, it is important to eliminate or drastically reduce this non-food from the diet to improve cholesterol levels. Most of my patients assume that it is the meats, saturated animal fats and cholesterol containing foods like eggs and shrimp that increase cholesterol. I find however that sugar consumption increases total cholesterol levels. Watch out for VitaTree’s Cholesterol Formula, soon to be launched in Canada.

Natural Cures for Migraines

Chronic headaches are a sign of toxicity and perhaps cranial restrictions that impede the proper flow of cerebral spinal fluid in the brain. Toxicity is common due to all the environmental toxins we are exposed to daily. If we do not detoxify our main internal organs regularly, these toxins build up and can cause headaches. Migraines are a more serious form of headaches and usually a sign of more toxicity. The organs that are toxic and related to migraines include the liver, kidneys and digestive tract. By doing a regular detox, at least 4 times per year, at the change of each season, this is one important step towards alleviating migraines and preventing them in the future. Craniosacral therapy and osteopathy are treatments that can help release restrictions in the cranium that can be a cause for migraines.

Mercury in Fish is Toxic!

We have all been told to eat less red meat and more fish because fish is much healthier for us. Unfortunately, fish is quite toxic and is often high in mercury, a heavy metal. Heavy metals such as mercury damage our cells and especially our digestive tract, liver, kidneys and brain. So how do we get the benefits of fish oils, the omega 3 fatty acids, without having to worry about the mercury and other toxins in fish? The answer is by taking a high quality, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplement that is third party tested to be free from contaminants such as mercury, dioxins and PCB’s. You must also make sure that your fish oil supplement is not diluted with less expensive oils such as soybean oil. This only dilutes the efficacy of the fish oil. Your fish oil must also be higher in DHA as compared to EPA. DHA is the essential nutrient for your brain and nervous system that helps with memory and cognitive function. For more information on Fish oils, see VitaFish Oil, (*the only pharmaceutical grade fish oil without fillers and higher in DHA ) and how to detoxify the body, mind and spirit, read The Healthy Millionaire.

Human Probiotics the Best

Probiotics are a buzzword these days in the news and on television programs. Probiotics are good bacteria that naturally inhabit the gut. They are essential to our being and over 400 different species of probiotics live within our digestive tracts. Probiotics can be found in yogurt and in probiotic supplements. What most people do not realize is that the probiotics found in most yogurts and supplements are not humanly derived microflora. Often these bacteria are from soil organisms and cow bacteria. It really only makes sense to colonize a human digestive tract with human microflora. Probiotics are helpful if you suffer from chronic sinus infections, yeast infections, candida and allergies.

Natural Treatments for Chronic Acne

Acne is a condition of toxicity and often hormonal imbalance. Toxicity, usually starting in the GI Tract and liver is not handled well by the body. So the body then pushes these toxins to the next route of excretion, being the skin. What we do not process internally, then has to spill to the outer route of excretion. Acne that only shows up periodically is often hormonally related. This has much to do with the liver, as the liver is the organ that processes our hormones. The solution then lies in detoxification protocols and making sure the GI tract is cultivated with enough good bacteria. Various detox remedies exist on the market, the best type is one that addresses all the internal organs, the blood and lymph. If you do not address the blood, it is difficult to clear the toxins that flow to the skin. See VitaDetox as a comprehensive detoxification supplement that is safe and effective yet gentle. Good bacteria are important to colonize the digestive tract. In the case of acne, often there is an imbalance, with too many bad bacteria in the gut, and not enough good. A high quality human microflora Probiotic is essential to clear up the acne and re-set the immune system.

Allergies Getting You Down- Natural Solutions

Watch VitaDetox Video

Seasonal allergies are now plaguing many of us as spring has sprung. Our immune systems may be overwhelmed from the toxic load in our body, and this is one of the reasons we develop allergies as we age. If we have not done regular detox over the years, the toxins build up in our internal organs. This then causes an inflammatory response and ignites the immune system . The immune system then becomes hypersensitive and reacts to things such as pollens, grasses and dust mites. One way to decrease the toxic load is to make sure that you do regular detoxification. See VitaDetox from VitaTree Nutritionals. To decrease the hypersensitivity of the immune system, it is important to use a good probiotic from human microflora everyday. Get rid of dust mites in your home by vacuuming regularly and changing your pillow. For more information on detoxification read The Healthy Millionaire.

Your Vitamins Could Be Killing You!

Apr 29th, 2010 Posted in Alternative cancer treatments, alternative medicine, cancer, children's diseases, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, headaches, migraine, natural cancer cures, natural cancer treatments, natural weight loss, Naturopathic, Nutrition, safe vitamins, Uncategorized, vitamins, weight loss, Whole food vitamins | Comments Off on Your Vitamins Could Be Killing You!

Did you know that the synthetic vitamins you take everyday may be killing you? Nutrients that are synthetically made in most multivitamins can be toxic over time. Vitamins such as Vitamin C and beta-carotene are not found alone in nature. Vitamin C, for instance is usually in the form of ascorbic acid in vitamin supplements and multivitamins. In fact there are eight (8) components of vitamin C and ascorbic acid is only one of the eight. Nature made fruits and vegetables with eight components of Vitamin C for a reason. They all work together, synergistically to ensure good absorption and utilization by our bodies’ cells.
The problem with synthetically made multivitamins is that not only do they lack the important co-factors that go along with each nutrient, but they are also not absorbed very well by the human body. At most, we can absorb up to 30% of what we ingest in synthetic nutrients. So what happens to the other 70% of nutrients not absorbed? In fact, our bodies need to detoxify and get rid of the extras in our stool, urine and sweat. Ever notice how your urine may be extra bright after taking some B vitamins or synthetic multivitamins? This is the extra waste and byproduct that your body has to eliminate.

Thankfully there is a better alternative to synthetic nutrients. They are called 100% whole food multivitamins and they are found in select nutritional supplements.

Whole Foods-High ORAC Fruits and Vegetables Essential

Did you eat your 7-12 servings of fruits and vegetables yet today? The answer is probably no. In today’s fast paced society, we no longer take the time to prepare enough fresh fruits and vegetables for our snacks and meals. Unfortunately it is our health that suffers these consequences. Our cells require nutrients from fresh, raw and unprocessed fruits and vegetables on a daily basis and most of us are not consuming nearly enough of these important foods. The higher the fruit or vegetable on the ORAC scale the better. The ORAC scale quantifies the ability of a food to quench free radicals (toxins). The higher on the ORAC scale, the better. For example, Goji berries are very high in ORAC value as compared to apples. Not too many people eat Goji berries daily. Well now you can consume Goji, and all of nature’s highest ORAC containing fruits and veggies in VitaFruits and VitaVeggies from VitaTree Nutritionals. 2 capsules of VitaFruits in the morning and 2 caps of VitaVeggies in the afternoon give you the equivalent of 7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily! A great way to get those missed servings, plus the high anti-oxidant content act to quench free radicals that bombard your cells every minute of every day. VitaFruits and VitaVeggies are a whole food multivitamin, containing all the important phytonutrient co-factors that make our cells function properly, and of course, fight diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Chronic Sinus Infections-Natural Cures

Chronic sinus infections are usually caused by a fungal problem, not necessarily a bacterial issue. The way this problem starts is you have a cold or flu originally, and you do not heal completely from it, you are usually given anti-biotics to kill off any bacteria that are in the body. A few months later, you are sick again, this time with a sinus infection. You are given anti-biotics again, it is seeming cleared in a couple weeks, and then a few months down the road, another sinus infection, you are given another anti-biotic and so on and so on and so on…… Sound familiar? Unfortunately I have seen this scenario enough times in my practice as a naturopathic doctor to see a pattern. The original infection may be bacterial, but the anti-biotic given usually knocks off any of the good bacteria in the body that would prevent the fungal issue from causing the resultant sinus infections. The subsequent anti-biotics only propagate the fungal infections and this is why these sinus infections will never go away! Thankfully there are natural solutions. Probiotics are step one! You need to re-colonize the system with high quality human microflora to improve the immune function as well. See vitatree.ca and click on Probiotics for more information. Step two is of course staying away from the generic anti-biotics. Step three, use saline nasal mist daily to cleanse the sinuses locally.
