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.

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.

Chemotherapy Kills

I had a conversation with someone today who said she refused her chemotherapy protocol suggested by her doctor who said that the chances that it would help her cancer was only 4%. It was smart of her to ask the question in the first place as to what the success rate on chemo would be for her type of cancer. Not enough cancer patients ask this question, when they really should. The reason they should ask is that most chemotherapy is unsuccessful for most types of cancer. There is only a handful of cancers that are really helped by the toxic chemo treatments.

Luckily there are natural solutions to chemotherapy and conventional cancer treatments. Having lost my mom to cancer when she was only 50 years old, I try to help educate others about the alternatives that exist in nature to help both prevent and treat cancer.

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.

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.

Try a saline nasal spray. Yes, a generic, non-drug containing saline nasal spray is an easy way to flush out the sinuses and eliminate pollens in the nasal passages.

Also, detoxification is the key to long-term success and relief from allergies, as well as high quality human probiotics.

Three Natural Tips for Allergies

Apr 27th, 2010 Posted in allergies, alternative medicine, childhood illnesses, Detoxification, Digestive blogs, headaches, natural weight loss, Naturopathic, Nutrition, Uncategorized, vitamins, weight loss, Whole food vitamins | Comments Off on Three Natural Tips for Allergies

Allergy season is upon us. Spring pollens have sprung about 3 weeks earlier this season and many of us are suffering already. What is the natural solution? Detoxification and Probiotics! Detoxification of the major internal organs is necessary to alleviate the toxic load on the body and to allow the immune system to not over-react to common allergens such as pollens and grasses. Probiotics are essential to moderate the immune system, 80% of which is in the digestive tract. Probiotics are good bacteria that should naturally inhabit our digestive system. Unfortunately, most of us lack enough of these good bacteria, especially if we are stressed or have taken anti-biotics or synthetic hormones. Three natural tips for allergy sufferers are:
1. Eat whole foods, exercise and drink plenty of good quality water from a glass container.
2. Detoxify at allergy season, especially spring and fall. See VitaDetox at www.vitatree.ca
3. Take Probiotics everyday, even when it’s not allergy season. This will ensure a healthy immune system and decrease allergy symptoms. VitaTree Probiotics, Canada’s only human strain probiotic without synthetic fillers!
