Health 101

Feeling sick, tired, cant sleep, cant focus enought to figure out what is wrong? I have been there.

 

Health 101: 4 Steps

This works for me. Everyone is different, you have to try and and see what works for you. The list below is a basic foundation to strengthen the immune system, which when stressed, leads to the conditions listed above and worse. These are listed in order of importance. Do them all at once, or in steps to gets started.

Check For Mold. If you see any black dust in the AC/heat, or spots in the walls, specially in rooms with water.

Dont Drink The Water. Dont drink or bathe in citywater. Chlorination, fluoridation and other chemicals affect your immune system. Filters are  inexpensive and easy fix.

Detox. You need to cleanup. Greens and probiotics are essential for gut health, specially if you are over 40 and/or had/have immune diseases:

Nutrition. Eat organic, local, fresh foods are best. Avoid sugar, sodas, fast food, and processed food. If it has more than a few ingredients, its probably not recommended. Same goes for anything that is wrapped in plastic or in a box… processed foods. There are better “boxed” products in your local health food stores.

I dont have any affiliations with any products I recommend. These products have worked for me for years. This is not medical advice. It is what works for me.


Protect your access to dietary supplements

Victory is within reach, and your letter to your Senators at this critical juncture is more important than ever. Send a letter to your Senators now, urging them to reject S. 3002, the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010.

9 Reasons S. 3002 Has to Go

Shop Local

Radiohead and MTV video.
Look at where the products you are considering buying are made, and how we could change peoples lives by supporting healthy local economies instead of child labor, big oil tankers, big rigs all over our highways, minumun wage employment.

When you and your family gather together this year, don’t get caught up in the fatal frenzy of consumerism. Pledge to celebrate Christmas differently. Re-evaluate what really matters and replace the plethora of impersonal gifts with something more meaningful: spending time with each other, cooking and crafting, and if you must buy something, support your local businesses.


it must be homegrown

A friend I was having lunch with got ths fortune shortly after she read the passage below to me:

If in your thoughts you see something beyond where you are, if you see a dream, a goal, or an aspiration that others would think impossible, you may have to hold it. Sometimes you may have to hide it, and most of the time you will have to water it as a farmer waters his crops to sustain the life in them. Just know that whenever your children, your friends, or anyone else  comes to the table of your wisdom, you can only feed them what you have grown in your own fields.  Your wisdom is so flavorful and its texture so rich that it cant be store bought; it must be homegrown.

Naked and Not Ashamed, T.D. James

Masaru Emoto, love, and water.

How water structure reflects our consciousness

by WellnessGoods.com

Water has a very important message for us. Water is telling us to take a much deeper look at our selves. When we do look at our selves through the mirror of water, the message becomes amazingly, crystal, clear. We know that human life is directly connected to the quality of our water, both within and all around us.

The photographs and information in this article reflect the work of Masaru Emoto, a creative and visionary Japanese researcher Mr. Emoto has published an important book, “The Message from Water” from the findings of his worldwide research If you have any doubt that your thoughts affect everything in, and around you, the information and photographs that are presented here, taken from the book of his published results, will change your mind and alter your beliefs, profoundly.

A New Beginning

The actions of individuals and families are the real building blocks of culture and economy and, rather than expect leadership from our elected officials, we need to each take responsibility for building a future we can be proud of.

Here are 6 ways we can start building a sustainable future for ourselves and the world.

1. Get growing
Building a sustainable future begins with developing a healthy relationship with our environment. The natural cycles of life and the connections between healthy soil, water and air and our personal well-being become obvious to the gardener. If you have a yard, set aside a space for growing vegetables and get the whole family involved. Even a small plot will serve to teach your children the basics of our intimate connection with the environment. If you live in an apartment, even a small container garden on the balcony can accomplish the same.

Besides the benefit of awareness, of course, a garden plot can also help defray food costs. However, this is not always the case. Gardening can be labor intensive and costly. If you hope to save on your food budget by gardening, here are some tips about the most ‘cost-effective’ vegetables to grow, and organic methods which can reduce the need for more expensive garden supplements.

In 1900, more than half the U.S. population lived on farms, 46 million out of the 76 million total population. By 1990, there were 3.87 million people living on farms, only 1.6 percent of the total population.

2. Champion thrift
Lost in the mirage of consumerism are the timeless values of thrift and modesty. Today, many consumer purchases are not based on real need, but rather to maintain an inflated standard of living that has been influenced by corporate agendas and clever advertising. This marketing has become so pervasive that many of us feel poorly about ourselves if we aren’t driving a late model car, wearing the latest in fashion or using the newest iPhone. We need to remind ourselves and our children that thrift is the cornerstone of sustainability. Many of us remember our parents or grandparents being proud of being thrifty, not wasting a thing, extending the usable life of an item in an imaginative way. A simple modest lifestyle is a welcome change to the pressure of constantly trying to keep up with ever-increasing consumer standards. Mend clothes, fix things in lieu of replacing them, compost food waste, conserve water in the home and yard, buy clothing with timeless styles, visit thrift shops….you get the idea. Make thrift a family value.

3. Break from the car
While auto companies are retooling to produce more energy-efficient cars, there will always be significant environmental costs associated with driving. We can help mitigate these costs by being more miserly with our use of cars. Setting a family policy of “no driving for trips under 1 mile” or similar restriction, will help everyone get the point. Public transportation, bikes, and walking need to be embraced as reasonable alternatives for short trips. The simplest method, consolidating trips, goes without saying. (In our family, we now drive to the mall once a month instead of once a week. We simply keep a list and wait till there’s enough to warrant a trip. This has been easy, and I enjoy the extra time at home on weekends. And the funny thing is that by waiting, we often decide we dont really need some of the items on the list. Consolidating trips deters impulse buying.) Our current “car culture” is not realistic in a sustainable future. Walk more, bike more, car pool whenever possible.

Consolidating trips deters impulse buying.

4. Avoid using pollutants and toxic materials in your home and yard.
Most people trust the safety of products found on store shelves, especially since we have considerable government oversight to ensure consumer safety. But in many instances this trust is unfounded. Many household cleaners, air fresheners, interior paints, carpets and even furniture items contain hazardous chemicals that can harm us. Young children are especially vulnerable, partly because of increased exposure. Everything goes in their mouths and they virtually live on the floor. And young kids are more sensitive because they are still developing the basic body system; the brain, internal organs, respiratory and immune systems are not fully developed until adolescence. Read the labels on products coming into your home, and look for nontoxic alternatives for home cleaning and painting. Outdoors, be aware of the hazards of lawn care chemicals found in “weed ‘n feed products. Consider the safer natural alternatives, or look to ways to reduce the size of your lawn. Better yet, convert your lawn to an edible landscape or backyard vegetable garden.

“How can we, as one of the most advanced countries in the world allow these to enter our household for small children, without the appropriate testing to see that it’s safe?”
Dr. Gideon Koren, Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

5. Teach your children
As every parent knows, time flies when it comes to children. The early years pass quickly while young parents try to balance the demands of career-building with child rearing. Young children today spend a disproportionate amount of time in nurseries and daycare programs, and watching TV at home. The younger the child the more impressionable.
It is essential that young parents make it a priority to spend more time with their children, especially the youngest ones, to teach them your values. Teach them the importance of a healthy environment and how it relates to their personal and future well-being. Schools are remiss in this regard – they do not teach environmental stewardship in core curriculum. It is up to the parents, and essential for any hopes of a sustainable future.

Two-thirds of infants and toddlers watch TV an average of 2 hours a day. Kids and teens 8 to 18 years spend nearly 4 hours a day in front of a TV screen and almost 2 additional hours on the computer (outside of schoolwork) and playing video games. Kaiser Family Foundation

6. Adopt a piece of nature
We each have our favorite places in nature where we can find renewal and inspiration. A lovely spot in a park, a bit of shoreline, a forest path or mountain trail. Because we share these places with others, we may not feel responsible for their maintenance or protection. When we see garbage or the gradual degradation of the natural beauty, however, the easy rationalization is “someone else will deal with it”. I’ve taken to bringing a plastic bag once a week when visiting one of my favorite spots, and it is most satisfying to pick up the garbage and clean the site. This simple act bonds me even more to the site, and heightens the pleasure of each visit.

Pick a natural spot that your family values and become ‘silent stewards’. This doesn’t mean starting a ‘save the trees’ campaign or engaging others to take action, but rather it’s about building a personal relationship with nature and sharing the importance of this with your family.

Right now is a special time in history, when optimism and enthusiasm for change have captured the nation and touched the world. Now is the time for us each to participate as agents of the change we seek by incorporating sustainable living values and practises into our everyday lives.

pH, toxins and disease

http://www.thewolfeclinic.com/

ALKALINE YOUR BODY

Let’s talk about your refrigerator. Go home, unplug your refrigerator, and find out what happens. Now remember that before you unplugged that fridge there was no mold, no bad bacteria, and no bugs. By pulling the plug you change the environment. Watch what happens. Your food will start to break down through fermentation and then putrefaction. Things start growing and crawling around. Where did they come from? You know that they didn’t sneak in. The door was closed. They were always there. It is just that they have gone through metamorphosis and they have changed due to an environmental shift – in other words “a drop in pH”.

These parasitic invaders are made up of the same material on which your immune system is built. If your body’s environment is not in proper balance it will mutate and possibly kill you. If it does not kill you immediately it will keep you in a state of sickness that will pull your immune system down gradually and continually until it does kill you. If you do not believe this, pull your refrigerator plug and see what happens. Prove it to yourself.

AGE SPOTS – YOUR BODY IS TALKING

Let us take another example – a banana. Take a banana away from its life source and you change its environment. The banana starts to get brown spots on it. What are these brown spots? They are actually mold. The internal environment is becoming acidic. The banana is going moldy. How many people do you know have brown spots on their face or the back of their hands, or on their entire body? We are talking about mold on the inside of the body causing external symptoms we call age spots.

When you talk about fungus, you are talking about athlete’s foot, vaginitis, thrush, eczema, psoriasis, ear infections, sinus infections, and even cancer. This is all about mold and you cannot have mold unless you have a drop in your pH. You have to be suffering from acidosis due to a lack of oxygen to your cells because your hydrogen pools are depleted and your water is not alkaline and clustered.

A TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE

Let’s take it a little further. I would like you to imagine something. Don’t clean your house for a year. What do you think happens if you don’t clean your house for a year and you live in that environment? You are going to create disease, in other words, a disease environment for bacterial warfare.

Take a look around. How many people do you know are suffering from allergies, asthma, arthritis, cancer, environmental illness, chronic fatigue, etc? If you have an acidic pH and putrefaction in your body, it is going to create various types of bugs: i.e. bacteria, parasites, fungus, mold, and all of these bugs are going to pull the immune system down.

GETTING THE GARBAGE OUT

Let’s take a look at the garbage can. We have one garbage can that is full of garbage and another one that is clean. We are going to put a lid on both garbage cans. Now open up the full garbage can and reach on in. You are going to find worms, mold, bad bacteria, and decay. What is all of this? It is not fermentation. It is putrefaction. The terrain in the garbage can has gone into a state of acidosis.

Should we kill the bugs or change the environment? If we kill the bugs without changing the environment they will be back the next day. Open the second garbage can that was clean. It is still clean – no bugs, no mold, no disease. If you can have an environment that is in proper pH, or in other words is alkaline, you will not have these invaders.

We cannot go out and successfully attack mold, bacteria, and viruses with vaccinations and antibiotics because this does not kill them permanently. It makes them stronger and they learn to adapt just like a cockroach. These molds and bad bacteria were friendly at one time. However, we created the environment that became unfriendly and our unfriendly environment sent out invitations to join the parasite party that is going on inside you. What you have to do is change your inner terrain.

Take another look at the garbage can that is clean. It has no parasites, no bad bacteria, no mold, and no virus. They are unable able to exist in it. Now look at the garbage can that has these bug-like invaders in it and your first instinct is to use chemical sprays to kill those bugs and walk away. But guess what? Tomorrow morning, as soon as you get up, those bugs are going to be back. You did not change the environment and that is the whole issue – no environment change means no permanent change.

LIFE AND DEATH ARE IN THE BLOOD

We have to look at it this way. Do the mosquitoes create the swamp, or does the swamp create the mosquitoes? We need to look at things logically, from the global level to the cellular level. Everything revolves around the theory of an alkaline system. If you can understand that theory, then you know that germs are nothing and the environment inside your body is everything.

Life and death are in the blood. How are your inner streams? The most important thing is to “Reclaim Your Inner Terrain”. We talk about ecology, the air, the water and the land. There are no specific diseases, only specific disease conditions, and there is only one disease. That one disease is acidosis. When we think acid, we think of something that is corrosive and something that eats anything in its way. Think about ammonia or any other corrosive chemical. It can take the wax right off your floor. When you start building up acid in your body it will literally eat your body away.

Modern habits contribute to acidosis in the body – consumption of acidic food and drink, exercising improperly, drinking water that does not hydrate or cleanse thoroughly, inhalation of polluted air, mold, stressful situations.

Proper periodic body cleansing is the key.

CANCER IS A 4-LETTER WORD

I say to you that cancer is a four-letter word and that word is acid. Cancer is a systemic disease that has localized and metastasized whether it is in the breast, prostate, uterus, ovaries, or any other part of the body.

A tumor is a storage shed for acid. How does breast cancer develop? Let us look at weight problems first. Take a look around the planet, especially in North America, and you will see weight problems in epidemic proportions. People are getting fatter. We work out. We count calories. We take protein shakes. We go on this and that diet system, etc. but we never ever lose the weight for long. It comes back and even more than before.

Now what is the forbidden secret? Do you know why it comes back? We never address the real problem and that problem is acidosis.

ACID IS THE KILLER

The human body is very smart. When you start becoming acidic, the human body says, “Acid is the killer and we cannot have it close to any vital organs. It will cause heart attacks, strokes, hardening of the arteries and almost any disease you want to talk about, from diabetes to psoriasis to allergies, to asthma, and cancer.

If we do have the acid too close, it will eat away at the organs. It will cause cells to mutate. It will reduce the oxygen. It will cause plaque in the arteries. It will deplete calcium and so on. What we have to do is get the acid as far away as possible from these vital organs.”

In order to protect the organs, the body creates fat cells to store the acid. Fat cells are cold because the acid in the cells eats up the oxygen and hydrogen. Without oxygen and hydrogen, cells lack energy and warmth. They are cold.

DON’T COUNT CALORIES

What your body actually does is make fat. Whether you like it or not, fat and cellulite are saving your life. These fat cells and cellulite are packing up the acids and taking it (as far away as possible) from your vital organs. The more acidic somebody gets the wider they get, because the acid has to be moved away from the organs. So the more acidic you get, the heavier you are going to get.

The longer you stay acidic, the longer you keep these fat cells and the colder they become. What do I mean by cold? They are lacking the life force because they are not alkaline and because they lack oxygen. They are acidic and anything that is acidic is lacking in oxygen. That is why fat is cold. As soon as you can start to remove the acid from your body you will see that the fat cells will leave and not come back.

Try to starve your body into health if you want to, but the only thing that you are going to cause is a drawing of the acid closer to those vital organs and then you are going to end up in trouble.

We know that acid gets stored in fat cells. That is scientifically proven. When all is said and done, any really good health practitioner, or person who knows about health, is going to turn to this philosophy because this is the philosophy of truth and this is what is going to lead us out of sickness as a nation. I would like to finish the overweight issue with an article that I read recently in a newspaper.

SCRATCH DIETING OFF LIST OF RESOLUTIONS

If your New Year’s resolution includes dieting, the top editors of the New England Journal of Medicine advise you to eat up.

“Until we have better data about the risks of being over-weight and the benefits and risks of trying to lose weight, we should remember that the cure for obesity may be worse than the condition,” Dr. Jerome Kasirer and Dr. Marcia Angell said in an editorial in the latest edition of ‘The Weekly’.

BREAST TISSUE – AN ACID MAGNET

Let’s get back to breast cancer. When we look at something like breast cancer, we see that acid is stored in the fat cells. The female breast is comprised mainly of fatty tissue. You may not realize this but that is where the acid goes. When the acid goes to the breasts it gets locked into the fat tissue. The one thing you will always see before a woman has breast cancer is calcium deposits in her breasts.

The other thing, which you may not realize, is that there has never been an association between calcium deposits in the body and high alkaline pH. It has always been calcium robbed from the body (not nutritional calcium) that has been found in the breast.

What does this tell you? We know that Dr. Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize for proving that a lack of oxygen causes cancer. Further studies with Dr. Reich proved that it was actually low pH, or acidosis, due to depleted hydrogen pools, which causes lack of oxygen.

THE CALCIUM CONFUSION

Many people worry about taking too much calcium supplementation with the belief that it may lead to calcium deposits. Let us set the record straight. All calcium deposits within the body have been found to be calcium that has been leached from the body and not from nutritional calcium, as we have been led to believe.

The true cause of calcium deposits is lack of hydrogen, alkaline minerals, and proper cleansing which causes the body to go into a crisis state pulling calcium from body tissues and bones due to acidosis. Body calcium makes a poor substitute for nutritional calcium, as it cannot be used effectively. So the calcium pulled from the body will deposit in the weaker joints, tissues, or organs of the body creating all kinds of complications.

CALCIUM DEPOSITS

The scientific data is in. All that we have to do is use logic. When calcium deposits are found in the breasts, this is your first warning sign that you must saturate your system with a high pH level to pull that acid out as soon as possible in order to prevent breast cancer. The calcium was pulled from the body and drawn to the breast to help put out the fire created by the acid. This can occur anywhere in the body.

Logically we should replace what the body is missing. What is missing is your hydrogen pools, alkaline minerals, and a high pH. When you are talking about cancer of the breast, prostate, ovaries, or liver, or cancer anywhere in the body, these are the areas suffering from severe acidosis.

FATIGUE

One of the first signs of disease is feeling continually tired. It does not matter what disease you are talking about. You have got to get your pH turned around.

YOUR BODY’S SAFETY MECHANISM

As your pH level drops, your body becomes acidic until you reach the condition we call acidosis. When that happens, we start losing our calcium and hydrogen pools and it starts being pulled out of the blood, the bones, and the tissues. This is a safety mechanism. Your body is trying to put off the inevitable unless you take action. Your body picks up the ball where you have dropped it.

What happens now is that your oxygen level drops due to a lack of hydrogen, leaving you tired and fatigued, allowing fungus, mold, parasites, bad bacteria, and viral infections to flourish throughout the body.

When people say, “I have candida”, you must know that you cannot have candida unless you have bad bacteria, fungus and parasites. They all come along together. One does not come without the other. What we have to do is get in there and change our inner terrain. How do we do that?

We must clean the body to get it under control. After it is under control, we can construct new healthy cells. In order to get your body under control, you can supplement to assist the construction of new cells.

Do you have what you need to reclaim your inner terrain?

LOTS OF FOOD BUT VERY LITTLE IN IT

Understand that we have come into an era of malnutrition, whether we like it or not. I tell my clients, “Look, if you don’t want to take supplements, you haven’t got a chance.”

Even when it comes to organic fruits and vegetables, the minerals must be in the soil to be absorbed by the growing produce. Due to increasing levels of nutritional soil depletion, our food is increasingly lacking in nutrients. If you think you are going to get minerals from your food, you had better get yourself a transport truck to visit the supermarket and fill it up every week.

However, this still will not solve this health crisis. We have lots of food with very little in it. Until the ecology of our planet changes (which will not happen for many years because those who really care are not in control) the only thing that we can actually control is our own inner ecology.

We have to get this information out to everyone. We are at war. Are you ready to win? It is bacterial warfare against the pH balance. Are you prepared?

DOES STRESS CAUSE DISEASE?
Let’s Talk Headaches and Stress

As far as headaches go, we live in a very stressful society. For instance, how many times do you tell your children or your wife or anyone to “hurry up, hurry up”? There are also so many things that we can not change – the wiring in our homes, the radios, the TVs, the microwaves, and all the other things of which we are not aware that creates electromagnetic pollution. We cannot change most of these things. There is air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, and the chemical pollution in our food. Our bodies are stressed to the max.

When we are stressed, we release hormones. What do hormones do? After you utilize those hormones for your fight or flight response, they ferment and create an acid pH in the body. You will always notice that in people who are prone to headaches, just prior to the headache they had a stressful situation causing them to go into a fight or flight response. Their adrenals are dumping out hormones that cause acidosis. It cuts down their oxygen supply to the brain and nervous system eating up their hydrogen. So here comes another headache due to a drop in pH.

As far as immune system disorders, so many things are out of control. Most people buy almost every food loaded with chemicals. Most people will not buy food unless it is loaded with chemicals. We really need good supplementation, and we really need to saturate our bodies with readily absorbable nutrients, but buyer beware!

All supplements are not created equal. Misrepresentation in the supplement industry can lead to you believe that what you are taking is working in your body. Improper processing can affect the actual amount of any nutrient or vitamin in a capsule. For example, in a 500 mg capsule, up to 90% of the nutrient may never reach your cells because it is not bioavailable (readily absorbable by the human body). The nutrient may not have the capability of entering your cells, but will simply travel through your digestive tract (undigested), through your colon, and into the toilet. You will be literally flushing your money down the toilet.

Whether a person comes in with cancer, psoriasis, asthma, or environmental illness, it is all about creating an alkaline environment. It is all about getting their body alkaline again.

Let me tell you about the study where a tumor was cut it in half. Half of the tumor was placed in an acid solution and it doubled its size within a few hours. Then the other half of the tumor was placed in an alkaline solution and it died within a few hours. This study speaks for itself. Do you want to maintain an acid or alkaline environment in your body?

NATURE’S WAY OF TELLING YOU

The quality of your bowel movements is nature’s way of telling you the level of health you are experiencing. Just as you need to monitor what goes in your mouth, stool investigation will give you valuable information regarding your highway to health, the digestive tract.

Your digestive tract is the assembly line for the food you eat. Your bowel movements can give you a clear picture daily as to whether the most important process of health is functioning properly.

Learning what to look for in your bowel movements can prevent future illness and suffering. We have been taught to feel embarrassed about talking or even thinking about our bowel movements. Do not let this get in the way of your vibrant health.

The large intestine is the sewer system of your body. Mismanagement will only cause the digestive tract to become a cesspool. How does the rest of the body become toxic? The answer is mismanagement of the large intestine. You reabsorb your own toxic waste.

There is a reason for the large intestine to be the first organ developed in the fetus. It is the most important and influential organ of the body. Without proper sanitation, life cannot exist.

The best signs that your sewer system is not functioning properly are: bad breath, smelly stool, and you require the use of deodorant.

What indicates a good bowel movement is, firstly, that the stool floats. Floating stools are both a blessing and a curse. They can float because they are so full of bubbles and gas that they are abnormal. On the other hand, they float because they have too much fat in them, or they can float because they are high in fiber, which is the kind we want.

We want stools that do not mark the toilet bowel. We want them to hang together and not be pebbles, non-putrefactive, have no undigested food particles, a large volume, a wiping clean, and a sense of complete evacuation. Wiping clean should only take a few pieces of toilet paper – not a roll. It is amazing how often people do NOT have this sense of complete evacuation. We want one or more bowel movements every day.

HOW TO TELL IF ONE HAS A GOOD STOOL:

*

Is it soft, firm
*

Color – is it light brown, medium
*

free from foul smell and odors
*

it floats
*

No strain
*

elimination takes place 15-20 minutes after a meal
*

5 inches long
*

1 to 1-1/2 inches in diameter
*

banana shaped

STOOL INVESTIGATION

*

Bright red blood means that the blood is from the anus. It could be from an internal hemorrhoid or from a fistula or other rectal problem.
*

Dark red blood has come from farther up in the digestive system – could mean ulcers, or colitis in the splenic flexure area.
*

Blackish-red blood indicates ulceration and bleeding around the hepatic flexure.
*

Blood totally black in color could be from the stomach.
*

High protein diets with mostly meat produce a dark colored stool. Spinach and other vegetables containing chlorophyll can stain stools green; dark colored food such as blackberries or cherries will stain the stool a darker color.
*

Yellow or orange stool indicates insufficient bile and is mixed with intestinal contents, or a sign of jaundice or liver disease. Carrot juice can also make stools turn orange color.
*

A reddish wine colored stool can be caused from eating beets.
*

Iron medication or anemia could cause slate grey or blackish stool.
*

Excess protein stool is black.
*

Very dark, olive blue stool may indicate a diet too rich in protein and fat – too much putrefaction within the bowel.
*

Dark, hard, offensive smelling stool may indicate very severe bleeding high in the intestinal region. It may come from an ulcer in the stomach, duodenum, colitis, or Crohn’s Disease.
*

Grey or chicken soup-like stool can indicate liver or gall bladder trouble.
*

A hard, black stool means constipation.
*

Flat and thin-like stool indicates an obstruction in the lower part of the bowel or spastic colitis (usually around the splenic flexure of sigmoid area).
*

A stool with many small bubbles (bead-like) shows fermentative conditions.
*

A slick, slimy stool could be caused from jaundice.

A normal stool has no odor. If it is offensive smelling, then a lot of putrefaction and rotting has occurred and there is a digestive problem, which could include constipation or improper food combining. Bacteria, both dead and alive, usually constitute a quarter to half of the dried feces. Stools should normally be soft, a medium brown color, and should float.

SUPPLEMENTS – LUXURY OR NECESSITY?

Acidosis is a silent time bomb. It is like an hourglass – only a few grains fall through at a time but before you know it, time has run out. Do you know how many people have come to me who had never felt sick but who woke up one day to their doctor finding a tumor or chronic disease in their body?

There are two different types of people. 1. People who are symptomatic; every time they do something off track, they feel it. 2. Then there is the person who feels very little. It is like your body tries to adapt to its environment – for example the alcoholic who never gets a hangover anymore. This body has adapted to its environment for better or for worse.

All I can say is that it is all about prevention. You have to look at where you came from, in other words – the earth. We must return to her for balance. Nutrition is the foundation of health. If nutrients are not found in our food any more how long will it take before the foundation of health crumbles?

If you are the type of person who does not experience symptoms (unlike those who do) from lack of proper nutrition, then there is a very good chance you could have a heart attack or a stroke – without warning. People give the old line, “I was feeling great, I never felt a thing and bingo, I was hit with the big one.” It is just a matter of time. Acid is the silent killer.

The only true life insurance plan is proper supplementation that will reach the cellular level and do the job that many nutritional products claim they can do but never succeed in doing.

We need a super antioxidant hydrogen product along with a product that will cluster and pH balance our water (like Hunza water) along with a spirulina product that is easy to assimilate and deliver the nutrients to the cellular level. Let us not forget about a great two-week bowel cleansing regime to reclaim our inner terrain. Studies have shown that the quality of drinking water has a direct effect on the quality and the quantity of life. One example of this is the Hunzas, who were shown to live longer because of the water they drank. Deliver the cellular nutrition your body needs. Logic tells us that if we want something to last, we need to invest in it. Your body is your temple, which is home to your spirit. What are you worth?

I operate a clinic in the foothills of Quebec and my telephone rings constantly. Why? Because if you have the right philosophy and you have the correct products then you are going to get results. That is what we, at The Wolfe Clinic, are doing and we are proving it. We are proving that with even the most chronic disorders you can use this philosophy. Once you start taking diseases and putting them into a hundred different slots is when all of the confusion begins. There is only one disease – acidosis.

If we do not get the message out there we are going to be in big trouble.

IT SEEMS NORMAL TO BE SICK

It is tricky out there and it is going to get trickier. We live in the most toxic time that this planet has ever seen. Right now, we have hit a critical mass whether anyone wants to believe that or not.

If someone had cancer twenty years ago, people would be leery about getting too close. When you heard about someone with cancer, it scared you. Now it seems that we always know someone who is battling this disease.

How many people do you know who are in good health? What is good health? Let us be honest, it is normal to be sick, so what is normal to us is actually abnormal. For example, when you go for a physical and they tell you that you are healthy for a 40-year old, they are comparing you to the average 40-year-old person. It means that your stomach is hanging over your belt; you are falling asleep at nine-o-clock at night; you can hardly get yourself out of bed; your sex-drive is gone; your teeth are falling out; your bowel movements smell terrible; you have to use deodorant because you are rotting inside and that is normal because everybody uses deodorant.

What we think of as normal is actually abnormal but because the majority of the population is sick, we are all well.

We do not even know what well is any more. Got a headache? Take an aspirin. Are you constipated? Take Ex-Lax. Do you have cancer? Have chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. So I guess logically speaking, lack of aspirin causes a headache, lack of Ex-Lax causes constipation and lack of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery causes cancer.

Therefore, the train of thought for the average person is, “If I take a little of these therapies everyday I will be healthy forever.”

OSTEOPOROSIS – WHAT IS EATING YOU?

Osteoporosis is a very confusing condition for people. Most people think they can eliminate it with milk and eating plenty of dairy products. In reality, in countries where the people do not consume milk or dairy products, the instances of osteoporosis are very rare.

Osteoporosis is an acidosis problem. What I mean by this is when the body becomes so acidic, it says “Well, we have an alternative here. If this person remains acidic for much longer, we could have a heart attack or stroke and this may mean that our life is going to be terminated.” Instead of doing that, the body steals calcium from the bones, the blood, and from the tissues. As bone mass becomes depleted, this is what we call osteoporosis.

Now, just as you would see a raging forest fire eating anything that gets in its way, this is how an acid pH rages through your body. Similar to the way we put out the forest fire by drenching it with water, the only way to effectively treat osteoporosis is to change the acid pH in the body to an alkaline pH.

With a great super antioxidant hydrogen product, along with a product that will ionize and pH balance our drinking water, and a spirulina product our body can assimilate, we become efficient in doing this. Not only do we have to restore the pH in the blood and in the tissues, but now we have to restore it in the bones. We saturate the body with a super antioxidant hydrogen product because we need to rectify the severe pH imbalance. We already know that time is running out and it is a situation that is out of hand due to nutritional mismanagement.

The body is being eaten away. It is in a state of emergency. What we need to do is saturate the body. When we saturate the body with proper nutrition, it brings the pH up to an alkaline level, and drops the acid levels down. I know from my own clinical experience that ionic supplements and clustered water increases the absorption of antioxidants.

Most people who have osteoporosis have poor absorption. If we can saturate the body with proper nutrition, then we can put the fire out and increase alkalinity. However, do not cheat your body and fight a losing battle. Get the best antioxidant the planet can offer! Don’t cut corners when it comes to your health.

ALKALINE WATER – ESSENTIAL FOR GOOD HEALTH

The right water is critical for good health. This means alkaline water. The body is 70% water. When a person starts on a detox program they must understand this critical point. Some people will not want to do it because of the way they have been programmed. Those who will listen should drink a minimum of one gallon of alkaline clustered water a day – a few ounces every half-hour.

Understand that you need lots of water, because you are cleaning up a house that has not been cleaned in twenty, thirty, or forty years. Should you do it with a cup of water, or should you do it with a pail of water? The proper drinking water is healing water. You will never burn the kidneys out. They need that water, lots of it, and they need it now.

The human body is a large bag of water. Eighty-five trillion cells are putting their lives in your hands, hoping and praying that the fluid they are fed and bathed in is changed daily and has the proper pH, that being alkaline and clustered for vital health to exist.

The four critical questions to ask about your water are:

1. Is it clean? 2. Is it clustered alkaline water? 3. Is it electrically charged? 4. Are the minerals ionic?

I was reading a remarkable study by Dr. Alexis Carrell, who attempted to demonstrate that, under suitable conditions, the living cell could live a very long time, perhaps indefinitely. The heart tissue was immersed in a nutrient solution from which it obtained its food. Likewise, waste material was secreted into this same solution. Everyday the solution was changed, taking away waste substances and providing fresh nutrients. It is amazing to report that this chicken heart tissue lived for 29 years in this fashion. It died one day when the assistant forgot to change the metabolized polluted fluid!

In other words, autointoxication claimed this great masterpiece of experimental scientific investigation.

“The cell is immortal”, said Carrell of this experience. It is merely the fluid in which it floats which degenerates. Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cell something upon which to feed and, so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.

Understand that the alkaline/acid theory is going to be the foundation that people are going to gravitate to within the next three to five years. However, you do not have to wait until everybody lines up and decides that it is the real thing. You are not going to have the majority of society or so-called health system coming out and telling us that – at least not until we see our brothers and sisters falling by the wayside.

Our health system is structured for the benefits of the few, not the many. I know that you have made the right decision because it is really going to pay off and you are going to do a lot of good work for people.

Products that affect the pH balance in ionic state, which are saturated with hydrogen, electrons, and alkaline minerals, will be your foundation. There are other products that you may use, but you have your foundation. Now some people are going to say “Yeah, but I am deficient in this nutrient or I am deficient in that nutrient”. Understand this. First we get the body alkaline and then we see what we are deficient in. The problem is, nothing functions properly when we are acidic and you are going to get all of the wrong messages until we alkaline the system.

The most important thing is to Reclaim Your Inner Terrain and once you do that, you will send the parasites, fungus, mold, yeast, and bad bacteria (therefore all disease) packing because they cannot exist in an alkaline environment.

If I can say one last thing, this story will not end with a super hero or a cure to save the day. It is about getting the proper nutrition on a daily basis. We need to get the message out there.


Bacteria

http://www.thewolfeclinic.com/

We have now entered critical mass when it comes to bacterial warfare. Our greatest weapon against this is an alkaline body. The pH balance of your inner terrain is your first and major line of defense for your immune system. The creation of an alkaline body is the single most important thing that you can do.

This must never be overlooked if health and vitality is your goal. Everyone has heard about the germ theory but I have to tell you that germs do not cause disease. Everybody believes that germs cause disease but this is only a half-truth that has been perpetuated into a whole truth.

These are the dying words of Louis Pasteur, who actually made vaccines what they are today. “The germ is nothing, the inner terrain is everything.” I will prove to you in the next few minutes that the theory of trying to destroy bad bacteria for better health is not only temporary but can dangerously threaten your health and life in the future.

What we are looking at is a whole generation of health practitioners who are trying to manipulate the immune system into health. Scientific research and logic shows us that creating a system that manages our inner terrain through pH balancing is the greatest weapon for the health of mankind.

The Inner Terrain we are talking about is our digestive tract, our lymph system, our blood and interstitial fluids. All of these things must be managed properly through pH balancing. How many people and practitioners do you know who believe that the immune system is the body’s first line of defense? Well it isn’t. It is just a glorified janitorial service. What we need to recognize is that your first and major line of defense is your pH balance. There is only one sickness, one disease, and one cause.

You have to ask yourself,  What is this? What is killing us?  It is acidosis. Acidosis is the main cause of all illness. When I say this, I mean ALL illness, because your inner terrain holds the secrets to whether you are going to lead a healthy vital life or whether you are going to live in sickness and disease.

It is scientifically proven that an acidic environment breeds fungus, mold, bacteria and viruses. Right now, you will find many health professionals and patients trying to attack the mold, the candida, the fungus, and the parasites. Understand that all of these things only come along for the parasite party. If you can get your pH in proper balance you can send these bugs packing and they will leave out of any orifice possible and never come back, because environment is everything.


Herbal Treatment for Malaria

With the number of trials and tribulations in life, it is often difficult to remember that people living in other countries are suffering from misfortunes as well. Amidst the current concerns in the United States such as the upcoming flu season and the shortage of doses, there is a much larger crisis at large in the continent of Africa: Malaria.

For thousands of years, traditional medicine has been used to treat malaria. Such medicines have been the source of two main groups of modern antimalarial drugs:

* Artemisinin
* Quinine derivatives

However, due to increasing levels of drug resistance and unaffordable prices, many poor areas in Africa cannot access these drugs. Thus, researchers conducted trials in order to discover if there was an alternative route to treating malaria that would be both health and cost effective. They discovered the treatment of herbal antimalarials as well as plant based methods of insect repellent and vector control. The researchers:

* Sought evidence to determine how often herbal treatments are used to treat malaria, as well as what factors affected frequency
* Determined which plants are most commonly used
* Addressed the issue of clinical safety and efficacy of preparing these plants

Researchers concluded that an effective treatment for malaria is Artemisia annua, known in the United States as sweet Annie or annual wormwood. They also discovered that oil based capsules of Artemisia annua cleared parasites and fever quicker than chloroquine (an alternative treatment).

British Medical Journal November 13, 2004;329:1156-1159 (Free Full Text Medical Journal)

Dr. Mercola’s Comment:

Malaria, which dates back to 450 A.D., may have killed half of all the people who ever lived. And while malaria is not a major problem in the US, it certainly is in Africa. In fact, some 3,000 African children die of malaria EACH DAY. This is equivalent to one death every 30 seconds.

In a previous newsletter, I noted that arginine might be an effective treatment for malaria. However, after reading the recent BMJ review, I see that herbs for malaria and oil based capsules of Artemisia annua are also helpful alternatives.

This is exciting information if you travel to foreign countries, as the LAST thing you would want to do is take conventional drugs like Lariam (a dangerous traditional drugs for malaria) that is fraught with dangerous side effects.

Lariam was first used for malaria prevention in 1985, and since then approximately 14.5 million people have been prescribed the drug for prevention versus 1.6 million for treatment. We have also known for over a decade that this drug can cause psychiatric problems. It’s a terrible tragedy that our government is willing to sacrifice its own innocent civilians by failing to ignore the well-established clinical history of this potentially dangerous drug.

Further, since I don’t recommend taking drugs to treat malaria, another natural alternative is to consume FRESH garlic. It is important to remember that if you are not going to juice the garlic, you must compress it with a spoon prior to swallowing it. If you swallow the clove intact you will not convert the allicin to its active ingredient.

Canola oil? Not.

The Wall Street Journal June 7, 1995 pB6 (W) pB6 (E) col 1(11 col in). By Darleen Bradley.

Canola oil is a health hazard to use as a cooking oil or salad oil. It is not the healthy oil we thought it was. It is not fit for human consumption, do not eat canola oil, it can hurt you.

RAPE IN A DIFFERENT GUISE

http://www.living-foods.com/

Recently I bought a cooking oil that’s new to our supermarkets, Canola Oil. I tried it because the label assured me it was lowest in “bad” fats. However, when I had used half the bottle, I concluded that the label told me surprisingly little else and I started to wonder: where does canola oil come from?

Olive oil comes from olives, peanut oil from peanuts, sunflower oil from sunflowers; but what is a canola? There was nothing on the label to enlighten
me, which I thought odd. So, I did some investigating on the Internet. There are plenty of official Canola sites lauding this new “wonder” oil with all its low-fat health benefits. It takes a little longer to find sites that tell the less palatable details.

Here are just a few facts everyone should know before buying anything containing canola. Canola is not the name of a natural plant but a made-up word, from the words “Canada” and “oil”. Canola is a genetically engineered plant developed in Canada from the Rapeseed Plant, which is part of the mustard family of plants.

According to AgriAlternatives, The Online Innovation, and Technology Magazine for Farmers, “By nature, these rapeseed oils, which have long been used to
produce oils for industrial purposes, are… toxic to humans and other animals”. (This, by the way, is one of the websites singing the praises of the new canola industry.)

Rapeseed oil is poisonous to living things and is an excellent insect repellent. I have been using it (in very diluted form, as per instructions) to kill the aphids on my roses for the last two years. It works very well; it suffocates
them. Ask for it at your nursery. Rape is an oil that is used as a lubricant, fuel, soap and synthetic rubber base and as a illuminate for color pages in
magazines.

It is an industrial oil. It is not a food. Rape oil, it seems, causes emphysema, respiratory distress, anemia, constipation, irritability, and
blindness in animals and humans. Rape oil was widely used in animal feeds in England and Europe between 1986 and 1991, when it was thrown out. Remember the “Mad Cow disease” scare, when millions of cattle in the UK were slaughtered in case of infecting humans? Cattle were being fed on a mixture containing material from dead sheep, and sheep suffer from a disease called “scrapie”.

It was thought this was how “Mad Cow” began and started to infiltrate the human chain. What is interesting is that when rape oil was removed from animal feed, ‘scrapie’ disappeared. We also haven’t seen any further reports of “Mad Cow” since rape oil was removed from the feed. Perhaps not scientifically proven, but interesting all the same. US and Canadian farmers grow genetically engineered rapeseed and manufacturers use its oil (canola) in thousands of processed foods, with the blessings of Canadian and US government watchdog agencies. The canola supporting websites say that canola is safe to use. They admit it was developed from the rapeseed, but insist that through genetic engineering it is no longer
rapeseed, but “canola” instead.

Except canola means “Canadian oil”; and the plant is still a rape plant, albeit genetically modified. The new name provides perfect cover for commercial interests wanting to make millions. Look at the ingredients list on labels. Apparently peanut oil is being replaced with rape oil. You’ll find it in an alarming number of processed foods. There’s more, but to conclude: rape oil was the source of the chemical warfare agent mustard gas, which was banned after blistering the lungs and skins of hundred of thousands of soldiers and civilians during W.W.I. Recent French reports indicate that it was again in use during the Gulf War.

Check products for ingredients. If the label says, “may contain the following” and lists canola oil, you know it contains canola oil because it is the cheapest oil and the Canadian government subsidizes it to industries involved in food
processing.

I don’t know what you’ll be cooking with tonight, but I’ll be using olive oil and old-fashioned butter, from a genetically unmodified cow.

Here is more information……….

Canola oil from the rape seed, referred to as the Canadian oil because Canada is mainly responsible for it being marketed in the USA. The Canadian government and industry paid our Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) $50 million dollars to have canola oil placed on the (GRAS) List “Generally Recognized As Safe” . Thus a new industry was created. Laws were enacted affecting international trade, commerce, and traditional diets. Studies with lab animals were disastrous. Rats developed fatty degeneration of heart, kidney, adrenals, and thyroid gland. When canola oil was withdrawn from their diets, the deposits dissolved but scar tissue remained on all vital organs. No studies on humans were made before money was spent to promote Canola oil in the USA.

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare fatal degenerative disease caused by a build up of long-chain fatty acids (c22 to c28) which destroys the myelin (protective sheath) of the nerves. Canola oil is a very long chain fatty acid oil (c22). Those who will defend canola oil say that the Chinese and Indians have used it for centuries with no effect, however it was in an unrefined form.* (* taken from FATS THAT HEAL AND FATS THAT KILL by Udo Erasmus.)

My cholesterol level was 150. After a year using Canola oil I tested 260. I switched back to pure olive oil and it has taken 5 years to get it down to 160. Thus began this project to find answers since most Doctors will say that Canola
oil is O.K.

My sister spilled Canola oil on a piece of fabric, after 5 pre-treatings and harsh washings, the oil spot still showed. She stopped using Canola oil, wondering what it did to our insides if it could not be removed from cloth easily.

Our Father bred birds, always checking labels to insure there was no rape seed in their food. He said, “The birds will eat it, but they do not live very long.”

A friend, who worked for only 9 mo. as a quality control taster at an apple-chip factory where Canola oil was used exclusively for frying, developed numerous health problems. These included loose teeth & gum disease; numb hands and feet; swollen arms and legs upon rising in the morning; extreme joint pain especially in hands, cloudy vision, constipation with stools like black marbles, hearing loss; skin tears from being bumped; lack of energy; hair loss and heart pains. It has been five years since she has worked there and still has some joint pain, gum disease, and numbness.

A fellow worker, about 30 years old, who ate very little product, had a routine check up and found that his blood vessels were like those of an 80 year old man. Two employees fed the waste product to baby calves and their hair fell out. After removing the fried apple chips from the diet their hair grew back in.

My daughter and her girls were telling jokes. Stephanie hit her mom’s arm with the back of a butter knife in a gesture, “Oh mom”, not hard enough to hurt. My daughters arm split open like it was rotten. She called me to ask what could have caused it. I said, “I’ll bet anything that you are using Canola oil”. Sure enough, there was a big gallon jug in the pantry.

Rape seed oil is a penetrating oil, to be used in light industry, not for human consumption. It contains a toxic substance. (from encyclopedia). Even after the processing to reduce the erucic acid content, it is still a penetrating oil. We have found that it turns rancid very fast. Also it leaves a residual rancid odor on clothing.

Rape seed oil used for stir-frying in China found to emit cancer causing chemicals. (Rapeseed oil smoke causes lung cancer) Amal Kumar Maj.

Canola oil is a health hazard to use as a cooking oil or salad oil. It is not the healthy oil we thought it was. It is not fit for human consumption, do not eat canola oil, it can hurt you. Polyunsaturated or not, this is a bad oil. The Wall Street Journal June 7, 1995 pB6 (W) pB6 (E) col 1(11 col in). Compiled by Darleen Bradley.
