The Story of ADP

The Story of ADP-Emulsified Oil of Oregano (Sustained Release)

Science is making rapid progress in unlocking Nature’s basic secrets, especially in the area of plants and food-stuffs, which supply more than just nutrients. One promising field is the variety of spices that have been used for centuries to add zest to a wide range of foods. Interestingly, long before the advent of refrigeration it was recognized that herbs and culinary spices could slow food spoilage–natural antimicrobial principles were obviously at work.

Food scientists have become more interested in essential oils and aromatic plants. Recent studies have focused on the effects of spices and associated oils on food-borne organisms in the context of food safety and spoilage. Attempts have been made to identify the active components of essential oils from spices, among them the oil of oregano. Analysis revealed two phenolic compounds, thymol and carvacrol, as primary constituents of oregano extracts, and their antioxidant properties were reported.

Biotics Research Corporation is widely recognized for its emulsified fat-soluble nutrients and other lipids, microemulsified with the practical objective of increased absorption and bioavailability. This technology has now been applied to the oil of oregano. By emulsifying oregano extracts, the effective surface area of the oil is dramatically increased. An additional step was to apply a sustained release mechanism to A.D.P.®, assuring a slow release throughout the digestive tract. The combined effect of emulsification and sustained release is to optimize intestinal exposure to the essential oil.

We use ADP for parasitic, fungal and bacterial infections. It must be followed up with Bio Doph 7 a pre and probiotic.

Brittany Maynard’s Journey and Other Thoughts

Brittany did end her life on November 1st as she felt her health was rapidly declining and she could lose her autonomy about choosing how her physical life would end. It is heart wrenching to think what her and her family have been through during her illness. There were and I’m sure will be some amazing life lessons learned through it all, though.

One reason I talked about Brittany was because I was curious about the cause of her illness. I will explore some more thoughts on that soon. One thing that I heard about recently that shocked me was about a parasite that racoons can transmit. I’ve had many many encounters with coons as they live in the trees in our yard. Our puppy has changed their habits some but they are still here. Mummy Funny Ear (She has one ear that is not quite as erect as the other and has brought her babies to show me, hence the name.) lives up the big cedar right in the middle of our yard and is a sweet shy little lady. I have had encounters in the past with ‘chicken eaters’…yes they stole our chickens but again our fault, they were just trying to survive. So I actually like the little critters and enjoy their antics but knowing what I know now, I don’t encourage them. Like I said, I’ll talk more about this parasite this week but just be aware that this can be deadly although it is rare. So if there are coon feces (they use specially designated latrines) in your area, make sure you don’t touch them or let your children or pets get into them. These parasites can cause terrible devastation to the brain. They don’t seem to impact the coons but other animals and humans can fall victim. It is RARE but certainly something to be aware of. I’m not saying that this is what happened to Brittany at all but it is an example of a parasite causing brain deterioration.

I did have some people comment on my blog with thoughts like what about EMFs etc. All a possibility as a cause, but can’t be sure. More later…

Brittany Maynard-Thoughts?

A blog caught my attention about 29 year old Brittany and her ordeal with brain cancer. She has chosen to end her life on November 1st through assisted suicide. She is adamant that it isn’t suicide as the cancer will take her anyway in a cruel way. This is the last bit of control she has over the disease…how it will end and she has chosen a peaceful way to go as opposed to a horrific debilitating journey to the end of her physical life. She moved from California to Oregon because the laws are in her favour in Oregon. In California she would have had no choice but to die in a nasty way. When a person is suicidal they are usually clinically depressed and they see no other way out. She on the other hand, wants to live but knows that the cancer is incurable and also knows how the final weeks will be. She knows her prognosis and the signs that she is approaching the point when the quality of her life will decline rapidly. She has chosen not to go through that herself or to put her family through the ordeal. Right or wrong depends on your belief system. For her, she obviously hasn’t taken this decision lightly and hopefully this is the right choice for her. I prefer not to pass judgement as one can only know how a person in this position feels if you have been there yourself. My heart goes out to her and her family as they go through this incredibly trying process.

I always like to know ‘Why’? I probably drove my parents crazy. So as I thought about Brittany’s plight, I got to wondering that very question. Not from a standpoint of why her per se but from the point of what would cause this physically. I wondered if parasites could be part of it. I did some research and found a little bit of info but not much supporting that idea for the type of brain cancer she has (gliablastoma) but I did find some info about the possible connection to a virus (I believe related to herpes) and even to malaria. So I thought about the fact that she had traveled widely and wondered if she could have come into contact with something during her travels. This post today isn’t about pinning down the exact cause as I think there are multiple reasons for some cancers to develop. We do know that infections like staph and strep can be involved in many types of cancer. After all, staph is commonly behind cysts, carbuncles, boils and tumours. Often there will be multiple infections and there may be fungus or parasites involved too. Viruses can get in on the fun as the person progresses in the disease. So don’t take lightly that cyst that can turn into something more.

I don’t have cancer and hopefully never will. However, I could have gone down that road. When I was 7, I was in hospital ( a great place to get infections) for tests and when I came out I remember this awful huge boil on my leg. That was the start of my fun with staph infection. What followed was a roller coaster ride of staph infestations. Well really it was the same infection that would go and hide and then come out to play periodically. I had sties (eyes) from time to time. When I was 9 or 10 I developed a mass of horrid weeping sores on my butt. I spent the summer laying on my stomach. In my early teens I had impetigo (staph) which is quite contagious. In a town of 2000, I was the only one with it so I assume it was my reoccurring staph again. Also, in my teens I had pimples that I was told were acne but it didn’t look like other people’s acne. Again staph. As I got into university years I would get horrific colds and huge swollen lymph glands in my neck…staph. Around that time I would get this strange thought that would go through my head…Hodgkin’s, Hodgkin’s, Hodgkin’s. I didn’t really even know what that was at the time but it’s lymphoma. I didn’t know I had a staph infection during all this. At the time I didn’t even relate it all. It was much later that I figured it all out.

So eventually I met my husband. In the next few years he embarked on learning the system of CRA (Contact Reflex Analysis). I was tested regularly and lo and behold, one day staph showed up. Hmmmmm… So I went on a program to eradicate in. It took about 3 months with a product to boost my thymus (immune) and another one to clean up the wastes. If you don’t clean up the die off from the bacteria, if can recirculate and reinfect you. After that I never had any of those staph like symptoms again. Thankfully, knowing what I know now! I’m telling you this today so you can see how something that seems so minor like a boil, can mushroom into possibly cancer. Would it have? I don’t know but my intuition says yes.

So I’m just sharing this so you can be aware and hopefully be more observant of some of your own tendencies or your children’s and prevent a problem in the future.

Breast Cancer Prevention and Then Some

Susan here today…

First of all here’s what The American Cancer Society says…

Cancer is caused by changes in a cell’s DNA-its genetic “blueprint.” Some of these changes may be inherited from our parents, while others may be caused by outside exposures, which are often referred to as environmental factors. Environmental factors can include a wide-range of exposures, such as the following:

Poor nutrition, tobacco use, physical activity, ultraviolet light, radon gas, infectious agents like bacteria, fungus and parasites, chemotherapy, radiation, immune system-suppressing drugs …interesting that they don’t come right out and say that cancer treatment can cause cancer:(, chemicals, solvents, sprays, cleansers, vapors, air quality, herbicides, pesticides, paint vapors, gasoline, other chemicals, xenohormones or estrogens in water, herbicides, pesticides, and toxic air.

Substances and exposures that can lead to cancer are called carcinogens. Some carcinogens do not affect your DNA directly, but lead to cancer in other ways.

Carcinogens do not cause cancer in every case, all the time. Substances labeled as carcinogens may have different levels of cancer-causing potential. Some may cause cancer only after prolonged, high levels of exposure. And for any particular person, the risk of developing cancer depends on many factors, including how they are exposed to a carcinogen, the length and intensity of the exposure, and the person’s genetic makeup.

In October there is a lot of attention on breast cancer. Cancer plays a role in the lives of most people, either directly or indirectly. So why is breast cancer, in particular so prolific. In the US alone, breast cancer takes the lives of 45,000 women a year. Many in the prime of life! 95% of all breast cancer cases are caused by excess estrogen. So we will be looking at managing estrogen here and to manage your estrogen levels you need to understand the principles of apoptosis (limited cell life) and liver health. The liver is responsible for clearing excessive estrogen from your body so adapting habits that keep it healthy is a must.

Iodine (which most of you know is extremely important to thyroid health) is antagonized by three halides (bromine, fluorine, chlorine). All of these deplete your iodine sources. Iodine is not only needed for thyroid health, but it assists in proper colon function and reduces liver stress thus allowing it to function better and eliminate excess estrogen more efficiently.

bromides3Where do we find halides? Municipal drinking water, bakery products (after 1960, bromine was substituted for iodine due to misinformation about iodine), Gatorade and other sports drinks, some water purifiers so be careful what you buy, medications, pesticides (methylbromide used on foods such as strawberries), pools, hot tubs, car interiors (Love that new car smell!!), flouride toothpaste. Basically flouride, flourine, bromide, bromine, chloride and chlorine all are a problem. See the link for more info on iodine inhibitors.

http://www.co-creative-health-solutions.com/Common-Conditions.html

Here’s an excerpt from a previous blog that further explains how it’s not only estrogen that’s the problem but estrogen mimics.

Years ago, it was found that estrogen added to cancer cells caused the cancers to grow like wild fire. (Hmmm…is that why in their infinite wisdom, the medical world was promoting estrogen replacement? Big pharma, MORE $$$$$ MORE CANCER MORE $$$$) Later researchers accidentally found that cancers cultured in plastic petri dishes had dramatically accelerated growth even without adding estrogen. It turned out that the phthalates leeching out of the plastic containers were such potent cast estrogen mimics that they turned on the growth of cancer cells.

It’s obvious then that synthetic estrogens, whether they are from prescriptions or from estrogen mimics, can alter our chances for breast and other types of cancer. The bad news is that our society is swimming in a sea of estrogen.

Estrogen mimics or xenoestrogens are used in plastic bottles that hold pop and bottled water. They’re also used in plastic wraps that wrap supermarket meats and vegetables, etc. (Best to avoid microwave ovens all together but for sure DO NOT put plastic wrap over food and reheat it in a mikey.) So don’t be drinking water from plastic bottles either. Have you ever seen a big flat of bottled water sitting outside a store like say Walmart in the hot sun? What do you think is happening to the water? Yep…toxins from the heated plastic are going into the water. Also, think about cosmetics…full of chemicals. Find a company that produces natural cosmetics. Take a further look into the sources of these chemicals and how they get into our food and water supply so you can be more savvy. Check out the link below to Dr. Mercola’s chat with Dr. Christine Horner, author of ‘Waking the Warrior Goddess’. She has some good info and options for screening instead of mammograms. You can read the full blog and get the link to this interview here.

http://drdiffrant.com/2013/10/23/what-you-probably-dont-know-about-breast-cancer-prevention/

So what have we learned here? First of all avoid halides as much as possible. Not only will it help prevent cancer but it will help to keep your thyroid gland functioning normally. I call the thyroid your ‘happy’ gland. A great way to become depressed and end up on anti-depressants is to let your thyroid go without the support it needs. What I do is take some Iodine every day, not only for my thyroid but for prevention of cancer. Biotics make it in 2 forms one in a tablet form and one liquid.

http://www.co-creative-health-solutions.com/Common-Conditions.html   more info here on iodine inhibitors.

So I know that you are thinking, ‘How can I avoid halides when they are in my drinking water and I can’t drink bottled water’. Get a decent filter for your house and take your own water with you in a non-plastic container. We have a Kangen machine but they are $4000 approx. You can buy them on a payment plan so that might work for you. If you can’t afford one of these types of machines, Santevia filters are reasonable. It’s better than drinking from the tap and consider that reverse osmosis and distilled water are pretty much devoid of minerals and that’s no good either. We hydrate from minerals. So if you drink water that is devoid of minerals, you will deplete your minerals. You don’t want to do that considering our food is already pathetically low in minerals these days. Modern farming practices have seen to that. A hundred years or so ago 1 apple had almost 1/2 the daily recommended iron. Now…you have to eat 26 apples to get the same amount. Shocking!! Read this if you want to get depressed:( http://drdiffrant.com/2012/04/13/shocking-statistics-about-our-food-supply/

So basically eat a healthy organic diet as much as possible. We tend toward the vegetable based paleo diet and I’m not talking about vegetarianism here. Use the 80/20 rule so you don’t get too stressed out over things. We still have to have some fun! Avoid halides, get an iodine supplement, and support your liver. Another good thing to do is use a mineral supplement. And don’t get some cheap brand. Get a nutraceutical brand like Biotics Research – Multi Mins, Standard Process – All Organic Trace Mins or Nutri West – Trace Min +. These need to be purchased through health care practitioners and there’s a reason for that. These are high quality supplements designed to treat conditions so the products need to be really high quality and properly formulated. We mostly use Biotics. If you get cheap mins, you can’t absorb a lot of them and they can deposit where you don’t want them and cause issues. I recommend using nutraceuticals for any supplement you take.

Another really great thing to use for many reasons is Vitamin D as it is commonly deficient for reasons such as avoiding sunshine, sun screen, where you live and your age. Adequate vitamin D improves apoptosis. So when there is lots of sun, you may be able to get away without a supplement but people with darker skin may tend to have lower D levels so may consider supplementing always. We generally use Biotics Bio D Mulsion but there are other nutraceutical companies with Vitamin D products.

For liver support…Phosphatidylcholine (Biotics). This may also enhance gut function, adrenal efficiency, neurological capabilities and short term memory.

TRIVIA:

In Japan the average daily intake of iodine is 13.8 mg. The US RDA is 150 mcg. Japan has lower incidence of breast cancer, hypothyroid and feminizing cancers. Iodine deficiency is the main predisposing factor for breast cancer and fibrocystic disease. Women share their iodine with thyroid, breasts and ovaries. Before 1960, risk for breast cancer was 1:20. After 1960, iodine in bread was replaced with bromide. Breast cancer is now 1:8 and rising at 1% per year.

So contact us to order any of the products mentioned.

 

Back to School Protocols for Kids

Yes, the strike is still on and back to school might not happen in BC immediately but it is inevitable and so is the spread of colds, flu and other fall and winter time maladies. Consider ordering Influaforce from BioActive Nutritionals to act as a homeopathic way to prevent the flu. It’s used instead of flu shots for those of you that recognize the dangers of vaccines. Also, remember that Vitamin D is an integral part of keeping healthy all year long but particularly in the months when the sun takes a vacation. So Bio D Mulsion Forte is a highly absorbable way to get Vit D.

BioDMulsion

Astute parents likely sound like broken records, telling there kids to wash their hands…trying to instill in them that it prevents sickness. Once back to school, the hand washing likely goes out the window so to avoid and deal with those issues like ear infections, colds, flu, coughs and fevers if they occur, keep these protocols in mind to get everyone back to normal as quickly as possible. Keeping some IAG powder (easy to give to kids) on hand is a great way to start helping right away. Bio Immunozyme Forte can be used like a multi vit during fall and winter to keep immune systems humming!

 

These protocols are all Biotics Research products.

Bronchitis (Infants/Young Children)

¼ tsp IAG™ powder

½ tsp C/Cal/Mag™ powder

1-2 capsules Neutrophil Plus®

2 drops Bio-D-Mulsion®

1 capsule NAC

*Double the amount for older children.

Ear Infection (Infant and Children)

2-3 tsp IAG™ powder in acute phase

1 tsp IAG™ powder in chronic phase

1-2 capsules Bio-Immunozyme Forte™

1-3 capsules Neutrophil Plus®

3-9 tablets Bromelain Plus CLA™ between meals

6 tablets Cytozyme-THY™

2 tablets Cytozyme-Parotid-TS™

1-2 capsules Immuno-gG®

1 tablet Mn-Zyme™

1 tablet Bio-C Plus 1000™

1-2 tablet Zn-Zyme Forte™

*Reduce protocol by half for infants less than 6 months of age.

Pneumonia (Children)

3 tablets ADHS®

6-9 tablets A.D.P®

3-6 tablets Pneuma-Zyme™

3-6 capsules Neutrophil Plus®

3-6 capsules Bio Immunozyme Forte™

1-2 drops Bio-D-Mulsion Forte®

Sore Throat (Children)

1 tsp IAG™ powder

1 tsp C/Cal/Mag™ powder

1-2 Neutrophil Plus®

*Same protocol at double the dose works well for fevers in children.

Vomiting (Children)

1-6 tablets Lactozyme®

1-8 tablets Bio-6-Plus™

1-3 capsules Saccharomyces boulardii

1-8 tablets Beta-TCP™

10-20 drops Super Phosphozyme™ Liquid as needed to control vomit response.

Our fingers are crossed that you don’t need any of these protocols. However, if you do at least you’ll have them accessible. If you are unsure, bring your kids in for a check and scan. We recognize that some of these protocols are lengthy. Best to ask us what is most important in each individual case. This is just a guideline.

Here’s to beating the snot, ear aches, sore throat, coughs, and fevers this back-to-school season!

Bio Immuno

A unique, broad-spectrum multiple designed to specifically support normal, healthy immune function. Provides a wide array of vitamin, mineral, botanical, amino acid and organ/glandular specific support.

Iag

Modulates and optimizes immune function to increase natural killer (NK) cells for chronic bacterial and viral infections.

What You Probably Don’t Know About Breast Cancer Prevention

KOLBribbon

Upend the pink ribbon!

It’s breast cancer awareness month which I think is another ploy by big pharma to scare the living daylights out of everyone and sell more mammograms and drugs. Have to rant a bit you know:) Drowning in a sea of pink ribbons…being forced to have my hot beverage at my local co-op in a pink freaking cup!! I DO NOT want to contribute to the cancer foundation this month or ever. They don’t want a cure so supporting them is a crime. http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/?p=2191 (Someone that has had breast cancer and feels the same way…yeah!) Check it out…it will make you think again. Sometimes we get on these band wagons and we don’t even know what’s behind it all. Another peeve…’Cops for Cancer’. Why are they ‘for’ it? Shouldn’t they be against it? Arggghhh!! It might just seem like semantics but think again. Here’s another link…http://womenwcancer.blogspot.ca/2011/09/upending-pink.html

So here’s our take on breast cancer and this is becoming much more known in the holistic health world. So down the road there will be more of this in the headlines. Here’s an excerpt from a Biotics newsletter for doctors and this is our stance as well. My particular comments are in italics.

‘One of the most important health concerns for women today is breast cancer. Statistics show approximately 1 in 7 women will get breast cancer. Those are scary odds. As clinicians, we can make a profound difference. In many cases, we can truly predict and prevent breast cancer; and we can monitor our progress.

Mammograms and early chemo cocktails are not our idea of prevention. Now everyone knows you don’t just wake up one day and find out you have breast cancer. Cancer growth is a process. It takes years before aberrant cells can accumulate to a point where we can feel or even detect a lump. Most women have no idea that they are exposed to something every day that can dramatically speed cancer growth, excess estrogen and estrogen mimics.

Years ago, it was found that estrogen added to cancer cells caused the cancers to grow like wild fire. (Hmmm…is that why in their infinite wisdom, the medical world was promoting estrogen replacement? Big pharma, MORE $$$$$ MORE CANCER MORE $$$$) Later researchers accidentally found that cancers cultured in plastic petri dishes had dramatically accelerated growth even without adding estrogen. It turned out that the phthalates leeching out of the plastic containers were such potent cast estrogen mimics that they turned on the growth of cancer cells.

It’s obvious then that synthetic estrogens, whether they are from prescriptions or from estrogen mimics, can alter our chances for breast and other types of cancer. The bad news is that our society is swimming in a sea of estrogen.

So don’t be drinking water from plastic bottles either. Have you ever seen a big flat of bottled water sitting outside a store like say Walmart in the hot sun?

Check out the link below to Dr. Mercola’s chat with Dr. Christine Horner, author of ‘Waking the Warrior Goddess’. She has some good info and options for screening instead of mammograms.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/10/20/breast-cancer-prevention.aspx?e_cid=20131020Z1_SNL_Art_1&utm_source=snl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20131020Z1

Many of the pesticides and herbicides on our fruits and vegetables have estrogen like activity. The meats we eat are also increasing our estrogen levels. Animals are fed estrogen to increase their water weight before slaughter. One dramatic study demonstrating the effects of xenoestrogens in our drinking water found that male small mouth bass taken from a drinking water source actually had eggs in their testes. EGGS IN THEIR TESTES! These fish were harvested from a river that provides drinking water for millions of people.’

This isn’t the first story I’ve heard about xenoestrogens causing sexual deviances in animals so what’s it doing to humans. Sigh….

What are some other causes?…it isn’t just one thing but there can be bacteria, fungus, parasites and viruses behind cancer so that’s always a consideration. Future treatment methods for cancer will likely be identifying and eliminating one or more of the 4 criminals from a patient. Google Atavistic Therapy and Dr. Frank Arguello MD. He’s ahead of his time in this work.

What you can do….

Test for good/bad estrogen ratios– 2/16 Hydroxyestrone urine test is what to ask for.

Diet wise…here’s a few tips…eat at least 1 cup of cruciferous veggies per day. Arugula, bok choy, broccoflower, broccoli, broccoli rabe, broccoli romanesco, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese broccoli, Chinese cabbage, collards, cress, daikon, Ethiopian mustard, flowering cabbage greens, horseradish, kale, kohlrabi, mizuna, mustard greens, mustard seeds (brown, white & black), napa cabbage, radish, rutabaga, Siberian kale, tatsoi, turnip root, wasabi, watercress. In fact, this will increase your body’s ability to detoxify harmful liver agents like Tylenol by 20 %. Cruciferous veggies contain multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties: diindolylmethane, sulforaphane, and selenium.

NitroGreens from Biotics contain sprouted cruciferous veg so if you can’t get enough in your diet then here’s a great way to supplement. The sprouted forms are even more potent than the raw or cooked forms. 1 scoop per day is an excellent prevention strategy. It also contains beet and carrot juices which have liver protecting abilities as well. NitroGreens have the alkalizing effect of the grasses.

Ground flax seeds are another good addition to your daily diet. They improve the 2/16 estrogen ratio. 2 tablespoons of ground up flax seeds on salad, in your NitroGreens shake or with the above mentioned cruciferous vegetables has been shown to improve the 2/16 hydroxyestrone ratio as well. That’s over and above what the veggies will accomplish.

Reduce pesticides, plastics and commercial meats (as mentioned, they feed animals estrogen to bulk their water weight up for slaughter-in other words heavier…more $$)

Optimal EFAs (Biotics) are a blend of ultra pure EPA, DHA, organic Flax seed oil, cancer fighting GLA, and a balance of the omega 9 oils. 2 to 3 capsules, 2 times per day will provide excellent protection.

Iodine is sorely lacking in our diet as are most minerals (poor soil management…mega farming don’t care if they replace the essential trace minerals). Read this to get a big shock about our food supply. Liquid Iodine Forte and Multi Mins from Biotics are a way to add iodine and minerals to your diet that you can’t get from food anymore. I wish this wasn’t the case but anyone that says I don’t need to supplement because I eat well should click on the link and read. It will open your eyes, believe me. Iodine protects breast, uterine, prostate and ovarian tissue and is extremely important to optimal endocrine function especially thyroid. Minerals give us our spark so if you wonder why so many people are on anti depressants this is one BIG reason why…way less minerals in our food supply than 30 to 40 years ago. One shocking example…100 years ago the old adage ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ had some truth. Almost 1/2 our daily need for iron came from one apple. Drum roll….today you would have to eat 26 apples to get the same amount!!! Agghhh!!! Is that not just criminal? We are starving to death yet fatter than we’ve ever been. Extreme measures are going to have to be taken if we are going to survive. It’s not plagues, war and pestilence that will wipe us out but food with no nutrients. We will get weaker and sicker and the rest is yours to speculate. Liquid Iodine Forte-30 drops per day or use a tableted form called Iodizyme- HP. Iodine levels can be assessed through a 24 hour urine collection for more precise protocols. Multi Mins 3 to 6 per day. More if you think you may be dehydrated…most of us are:( It’s minerals that hydrate us not drinking water devoid of minerals. Most tap and bottled water fall into this category.

Supplement with Vitamin D–Bio D Mulsion Forte (Biotics) (emulsified is important but know that not all are created equal-it must not separate. Poor quality emulsions will separate.)

Vitamin D has been shown to cut breast cancer incidence by 77 percent in four years! Of course, other lifestyle factors are also important in preventing cancer, such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, and managing stress. However, vitamin D’s critical importance seems to grow with every emerging study. Carole Baggerly, founder director of GrassrootsHealth—an organization dedicated to increasing awareness about vitamin D and the crucial role it plays in health—believes that as much as 90 percent of ordinary breast cancer is related to vitamin D deficiency, which is 100 percent preventable! Vitamin D levels can be tested. I use 2 drops per day most of the year because we live in a place where the sun isn’t very strong for the bulk of the time.

So here’s some info you might not have known and can now implement in your prevention program. We shouldn’t be scared but well informed and we need to stand up to the ‘politically correct’ dictocrats that are trying to keep us sick and rake in the cash. So speak up!

In health,

My Zyto Scan Story

zytoPeople are always curious as to how the Zyto computerized scan can work. So here’s a recent scenario that happened to me (Susan). I think you will find it interesting and it will help you understand how the path to health unfolds. See the video below also.

A couple of months ago I developed a rash on my chest. Unusual for me. So that morning I decided to run a scan and see what would turn up. It was my spleen that was screaming for help and that was a first for me. So later that day I asked my husband (Dr. Van Dueck aka Dr. DiffRANT) to test me with CRA (Contact Reflex Analysis). I didn’t mention the spleen at that time as he would look at the scan afterwards. Guess what showed up? Yep…spleen. So he explained that the spleen is a cleaner upper and it was overloaded and couldn’t get rid of the wastes and was putting them into my skin. So I rummaged around in our inventory and found a bottle of spleen. Yippee! A few days later the rash was gone, never to return.

So some time went by and I had a few issues with lack of minerals and calcium which I corrected. Then about a week ago, I started feeling a bit sluggish and just not quite myself. So yesterday I did a scan and I had 46 markers out. Only 2 products showed up as necessary and the first product on the list would bring back in 42 markers. It was Bio C 1000 from Biotics. So I asked my husband what he thought because spleen was again asking for help as well. He said don’t take spleen right now. He thought I may have an infection. So he tested with CRA and sure enough I have strep…probably in my lungs because I’ve been coughing a bit. So the spleen is trying to clean up the wastes from the infection. Since it is most likely subclinical, it isn’t a full blow horrible sore strep throat or anything like that. But it is sucking my energy and likely causing some minor upper back pain. I’m definitely not out of alignment so I suspect that it is my lungs causing the discomfort. So I embarked on taking 2 Bio C 1000 every 2 hours yesterday and the idea is to do that until you get loose bowels. So today that happened and now I can back off to the recommended dosage on the Zyto report. I’ll continue for a couple of weeks and get rechecked. Check out my scan. You will see that liver, thymus and spleen are troubled. These 3 organs are the immune system.

So the moral of this story is that you can be walking around with bacteria, fungus, parasites and viruses and not even know it. I’m very aware of when I’m not quite right. A lot of people don’t think much of it but you should because it can be dangerous. What do you think is a big part of the cause of …the big C (Yes, Cancer)? Well, staph is what generally causes cysts and tumours. Fungus is another big possible cause. Cancer doesn’t just happen. There has to be a cause. And it isn’t just cancer, other diseases get started due to these buggies taking over. So I’m suggesting you pay attention to the little things so they don’t become big things that are hard or next to impossible to reverse.

I’ll take you back in my life a bit to give you an idea why I may be susceptible to bacteria and why I really keep an eye on that. When I was 7, I went into the hospital for a few days for tests. They couldn’t find anything wrong with me but I know now that I was likely already having thyroid issues (they are in our family). I have since learned how to keep that problem in check but at the time it was causing me to not want to do much physical activity and that was getting me into trouble in gym class.

After I got out of hospital, I had a big ugly boil on my leg. I still remember that thing…huge and full of pus. I know gross! BUT what is a boil caused from? Staph infection. Yes, the best place to get staph is the hospital so thanks to my little stay I came out with a problem that would haunt me for years. What happened next?

Well, a couple of years later I spent the entire summer on my stomach. I guess I was around 9 at the time. I had horrid weeping sores all over my butt. The doctor, Dr. Joint (yes that was his real name and his partner in his office was Dr. Aiken-seriously) had no idea what to do about it. He gave my Mum some special soap and that was about it. It went away eventually (in time for school).

During the next year or so we moved from Ontario to BC and the staph moved with me. We were in a town of 2000 people and I was the only one to get impetigo (staph). I also had styes (staph). I had horrible colds with great big swollen lymph nodes on my neck (staph). It happened so frequently that one of them has never been the size it should be since. It isn’t infected anymore but stretched out of shape. I also had a weird pimply condition on my face. It wasn’t like regular acne and that went on into my 20s.

Eventually I went to UBC and I still suffered from the horrible colds and some skin issues. Finally I met my husband when I was 29 and a couple of years into our relationship, he went to a CRA (Contact Reflex Analysis) seminar in the US. He came back enthralled and started using CRA in the office. I got tested regularly and after clearing up a few things, lo and behold, staph infection showed up. So then I understood my plight all that time. I began the program from Standard Process which consisted of Thymex (to boost the immune system) and Antronex (to clean up the wastes as the staph died off). It was a 3 month program and near the end of that time I remember standing looking in a cupboard for something and I felt an odd tingling and suddenly it popped into my head that I was finally free of it. It was strange because it had been with me most of my life. I had always had this peculiar obsession with Hodgkins Disease so I think my intuition was telling me that if I didn’t get rid of this thing that I was headed in that direction. So since then, all those symptoms and issues I had are gone.

So please pay attention and save yourself the grief I went through. I’m so thankful for the techniques my husband has learned over the years. I’m sure they and he saved my life.

Travelling this Season-Protect Yourself

Yes, it’s the time of year when many people from around the world take to the skies and find somewhere warm to spend a couple of weeks. It’s a great thing to do as it gives us a boost from the sun and some wonderful memories. Hopefully…

BUT what if you get sick? I mean, how much fun is that? All that money spent on a nice trip and you spend it hanging over a toilet or worse…in hospital…OR you feel fine but come home to find out months or even years later that you have Hepatitis, parasites or something equally nasty. In our business we have seen it all and believe me, it ain’t pretty but it is definitely preventable.

A year or so ago I put together a presentation and transcript that you can access here.  It tells the tale of the president of Biotics Research going to South America to visit maca plantations. There were other groups from around the world going too. They were eating food made by locals out in the boonies which is not the best idea since we aren’t used to the buggies etc that may be present. The Biotics group protected themselves but the others did not. Check out the short video to see what happened. Get the transcript.

The good news for Canadians is that we can get the product ADP from Biotics here in Canada and if you were to take one thing with you, this would be it. We can also get homeopathics to use without the side effects of a vaccine from BioActives. Liver Tonic 111 has the hepatitis nosodes in it and is part of our program for getting rid of Hep and preventing it. See below for an explanation of homeopathics and nosodes.

Another good thing to take with you is a well rounded HCl/Enzyme to take a bit before your meals. The one we recommend, Hydrozyme is from Biotics and it too is available in Canada. One more step wuld be acidophilus and Bio Doph 7 is our recommendation from Biotics. It is a pre and probiotic.

So there you have it. A very basic travel kit that you can get to insure you have a safe and healthy trip. These products are available only through health care practitioners. For pricing and to order, email us at cchs@shaw.ca.

What Is A Nosode? In homeopathy, there is a special type of remedy called a nosode. A nosode (from nosos, the Greek word meaning disease) is a homeopathic preparation made from matter from a sick animal or person. Substances such as respiratory discharges or diseased tissues are used. It sounds repulsive, but the preparation, using alcohol, as well as the repeated dilution and succussion, essentially renders the substances harmless, while producing a powerful remedy. The use of nosodes in a prophylactic manner, for preventing disease, has been employed in veterinary and human homeopathy for many years. It is supported by various holistic veterinarians and authors. We have used them for years. They are safe and they work.

The Dangers of Vaccinations, and the Advantages of Nosodes for Disease Prevention”

Vaccinations represent a major assault on the body’s immune system. Attentuated organisms or chemicalled killed viruses or bacteria are injected directly into the blood stream, an unnatural route of infection. This profound insult, avoiding the body’s first line of defenses, and flooding the system with millions of organisms or viral particles, stresses the immune system in a way not of natures design. This insult causes irregularities and abnormalities in the immune system which then manifests as chronic diseases in humans and animals.”

Hepatitis: There is Hope.

Hepatitis is a disease (virus) that is on the rise and many don’t even know they have it. Hepatitis C gradually scars the liver and can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. It is the leading cause of liver transplants. How do you contract it? Several reasons but the main ones are…the sharing of needles used for illegal drug use & blood transfusions. Basically, it can be spread by the swapping of bodily fluids. Symptoms of Hepatitis C include feeling very tired, joint and belly pain, itchy skin, sore muscles, yellowish eyes and skin, and dark urine. Since many people with the disease don’t show symptoms, it is common for people to have Hepatitis C for 15 years or longer, before it’s diagnosed as chronic hepatitis C. Stats say that 1 in 33 baby boomers have Hep C.

Then there’s Hep A & B…click here for info on how it is spread, who is at risk and more. One thing that we see on TV ads advertising for Hep vaccines is that care should be taken in tropical countries where hygiene may not be to the highest standards. If you have seen these commercials, you’ve probably noticed that they indicate ice in drinks could be contaminated. Ice machines if not cleaned properly, can harbour all kinds of buggies but how do you know without doing your own inspection of a dining establishment.

The first thing we would advise if travelling, is to take ADP (emulsified oregano-kills offensive organisms) from Biotics with you and take at all meals. Other helpers…Hydrozyme (enzymes with HCl to break down food fully) and Bio Doph 7 (pre and probiotics-keep good flora up in the gut to help deal with any nasties). See presentation on travel precautions.

Now what to do if you have Hepatitis. One of the main things the medical profession offers is Interferon. This is a year long treatment in most cases and is tough on the body. It can work but we know several people who have been through it and it has not worked for all. The ones that have been successful, had a rough time of it and missed a great deal of work. At the end of it…there’s no guarantee there isn’t permanent liver damage.

So what are the alternatives? The obvious answer is to support the liver but the virus needs to be dealt with too. If you are coming into our office, we would check for poor diet (alcohol, dairy, tap water, fruit juices, caffeine and artificial sweeteners), chronic endocrine hypofunction, immune dysfunction, unresolved prior infection, IV drug abuse, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and stress. Then we would determine the best course of action which would likely involve Dr. Clarke’s program from BioActives.

Here is some information from one of our clients…after 1/2 (2 months) of the program from Dr. Clarke was completed, the client experienced a significant improvement in numbers from a routine blood test. In their words…

‘When I came to know about my diagnoses of Hep B and got tested in Jan 11, 2008, my HBV DNA (viral load) was 36,776,708 copies/ml. After that it keeps on fluctuating.

Before I started Dr. Clark’s Program, my numbers were 770005 copies/ml and after they came down to 4229 copies/ml. There is another perimeter is in use now for testing and according to which it is 1240 international units/ml for 4229 copies/ml.

In terms of my Alt and AST levels (liver enzymes), they have always been normal (within the range of 0-36U/L) and are normal even now.

I am going for blood work again in few weeks and will keep you posted.’

If you would like to know more about Dr. Clarke’s program, contact us.

It involves the use of Liver Tonic 111 which includes the nosodes from all the Hep strains. Virotox (viral detox), Carduus Marianus and Dandiplex (2 botanicals for liver support and detoxification). Both Liver Tonic 111 and Virotox are homeopathics. We recommend a 4 month trial period. If effective, a maintenance program can be embarked on until clear.

You can purchase the 4 month program here for a 10% saving or purchase the products individually from our storefront.  2 month program saves you approx $25. Hepatitis Instructions

What are Cysts…Really?

The tests came back…there are cysts on your ovaries. You have Polycystic Ovary Disease. Now what?

Well, like any diagnosis, the words convey the symptoms but in medical terminology. Let’s break it down. Poly means ‘many’. Cystic means ‘cyst’ and ovary is the location of the disease. Dis-ease is a condition where the body is not repairing an injury. Injuries are not just knives, bullets, fractures or bruises but often from what I will call the criminal elements.

Our body is sustained by scavengers as I call them, such as good bacteria in our gut breaking down food wastes for transport out of our body. Yeasts are there too, as well as parasites, we just don’t like to hear about that. But without them we would rot from the inside out. That’s how the word cancer came about. The early physicians found ‘crab-like’ lesions in cadavers and so named them cancer from the zodiac sign for crab.

Ovary with cyst on the right.

Under most circumstances a cyst is a bacterial scavenger gone ‘criminal’. It is often a pyogen or pus producing bacteria and usually staph infection family. Other pyogens are strep, pneumonia, meningitis and STDs-all produce pus. The healing team in our blood identify the criminal and if not put in a nearby jail, a lymph node, they surround, capture and encapsulate the offender. This is called a cyst. If the infection continues, more captures take place. This takes up space and more and more poly criminals are walled off to be dealt with later. But later doesn’t come and the disease grows.

Most often help comes from radical surgery but if the lymph and blood can be assisted, natural healing can occur. The Biotics products we would use to help with this are Cytozyme Thy (thymus which is part of the immune system) and Bio FCTS. We can also, cross reference this to Standard Process Labs for you if you wish. Generally Thymex or Thymus PMG would be used and other products would depend on the location of the cysts.

We’ve had many couples come to us over the years to get help with conceiving children. The mother of the 73rd baby suffered with PCOD, but with biological nutrition, she recovered and is now on to a 2nd child.

PS…We are working on number 88.
