VEGGIES & YOUR GUT

VEGGIES & YOUR GUTAnother reason to “eat your vegetables,” – new research reveals that immune cells essential to intestinal health could be controlled by leafy greens in your diet.

Researchers from the Walters + Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Australia found that a type of immune cell called innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), promotes good intestinal health by keeping “bad” bacteria out of the intestine, helping control or prevent conditions like bowel cancer, food allergies and inflammatory disease.

 Researchers identified a gene, called T-bet, that produces these cells.  And they found that it responds to signals in the food we eat.Fitness Time

 The proteins in leafy green vegetables like Brussels sprouts and cabbage interact with a cell surface receptor that switches on T-bet, and might play a role in producing these critical immune cells, according to Gabrielle Belz, a scientist on the study team.  “ILCs are essential for immune surveillance of the digestive system and this is the first time that we have identified a gene responsible for the production of ILCs,” said Belz.

 ILCs are essential for maintaining the delicate balance between tolerance, immunity and inflammation.  “We are very interested in looking at how the products of these vegetables are able to talk to T-bet to make ILCs, which will give us more insight into how the food we eat influences our immune system and gut bacteria,” said Belz.

MEN & INFERTILITY

MEN & INFERTILITYOligoasthenoteratozoospermia is a condition that includes oligozoospermia (low number of sperm), asthenozoospermia (poor sperm movement), and teratozoospermia (abnormal sperm shape), and is the leading cause of infertility in men. 

In another study investigating fertility, this time performed on infertile men suffering with this condition, supplementation with CoQ10 showed a dramatic improvement in sperm morphology and sperm count as well as antioxidative parameters in men suffering with this condition.

May I suggest that you don’t just use the usual CoQ10 – but use Ubiquinol CoQ10 for the incredible strength and advantages it can offer.

IT’S YOUR BRAIN

Zinc deficiency has been shown to increase ischemic brain vulnerability, possibly due to the inappropriate glutamate release by brain cells through the NMDA receptor, according to a recent study.  The NMDA receptor is integral for controlling synaptic plasticity and memory formation.IT’S YOUR BRAIN

 The brain issues we’re hearing about today were never dealt with years ago.  It’s time we all looked at the foods that we’re ingesting and realize that most of the conditions/diseases we’re dealing with today are the chemicals in the foods we eat daily.  So, you don’t want to cook!  OK!  But what are you buying to put in your mouth – processed junk?  You’re health is up to YOU!  

 I really love you all and I want to shake you up so that you finally realized that the symptoms that most are dealing with today – aren’t normal – at least, check out my HealthTest©  – you may be astonished, excited and even wondering – why didn’t I do this before I spent all those hundreds of dollars of this and that because “they said.”

GENTS/OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

GentsDeficiency of the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid or DHA has been shown to adversely affect the normal formation of sperm, thus negatively impacting spermatogenesis and subsequent male fertility.

Men concerned about fertility may want to consider supplementing with this important dietary fat found in fish oil.

What’s confusing to the general public is they see the ‘name’ – but the products can be as different as white and black.  Make sure you’re purchasing a reliable product.  One of the advantages of taking my HealthTest© is you escape the ‘figuring-it-out’ – you have personalized help!

The FDA is Sharing Patients’ Private Medical Records Illegally!

Alert!_59538469The FDA is Sharing Patients’ Private Medical Records  to Harass Integrative Doctors

 Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA) has learned that the FDA is working with state medical boards behind the scenes – sometimes in violation of the law.

 According to our sources, professional medical boards are launching investigative actions against integrative physicians not because of patient complaints, but because of materials forwarded to them by the FDA before they are made public.  These boards are treating the FDA documents as if they were formal complaints.

In other words, the US Food and Drug Administration, which is barred from interfering with the practice of medicine, is in fact deliberately but secretly ignoring the rules – something practitioners and consumers alike need to be warned about.

We suspect, but cannot yet prove, that this is widespread and is being orchestrated by a shadowy private group called the Association of State Medical Boards.

Today we will offer just a few examples:fda-ignores-patient-rights

One doctor in Louisiana was accused by the FDA of not following his IND (investigational new drug study) protocol involving stem cells.  The state’s medical board – prompted by the FDA – then went after his license.  In the end, the doctor kept his license by signing a consent agreement.  Demanding the signing of an onerous consent decree is a favored government tactic.  Because the government has unlimited legal funds, it can threaten to bankrupt the doctor if the decree is not signed, and then include provisions in the decree that are not only humiliating but difficult to follow, so that further charges can be threatened or filed.

The system sometimes works in reverse as well.  The California medical board notified the FDA about a possible contamination problem with intravenous garlic that a doctor was using to treat lyme disease.  The FDA started its own investigation and obtained the patients’ private information, it them handed the patient records over to the medical board, exposing the patients’ private information.  This is illegal in California, but sadly, not in most other states, where a state board may obtain patients’ medical records without their consent.

Judge-with-GavelIn response, a case was filed in Sacramento on behalf of the patients whose medical records were improperly given to the board by the FDA.  For strategic reasons, it was a narrow action: the suit went after the medical board and its agents, not the FDA.  California’s constitution includes the right to privacy, which the courts have interpreted to mean that absent explicit consent from the patient, the medical board has to prove good cause for a request for private records.

There are other areas in which the FDA is aggressively interfering in the practice of medicine. The agency assets that one’s own stem cells, when used in a medical procedure, are drugs – and therefore to be regulated as drugs.  For example, a Colorado company offered a treatment in which stem cells were isolated from the patients’ bone marrow, processed, and the resulting cells injected back into the same patient to treat joint pain.  The FDA said the company was “manufacturing, holding for sale, and distribution of (sic) an unapproved biological drug product, “ and issued an injunction  to stop the treatment.  The company sued, but the court sided with the FDA, stating that the biological characteristics of stem cells are changed enough in the procedure that they warrant regulation by the FDA.  The company plans to appeal the ruling.cartoon_bigPharma2

In another attempt to regulate the human body, FDA tried to claim human excrement as a drug.  No, we’re not kidding.  There’s a medic al procedure to treat gut infections by implanting the intestine with healthy bacteria from healthy family member-donors’ fecal matter.  FDA said the stools were unregulated drugs, and would require investigational new drug applications and would have to be taken through the extraordinary expensive approval process before doctors could continue to perform the procedure.  In June, as a direct result of embarrassing publicity, the FDA said they won’t enforce the new requirement, after all.

Information such as this and others that I share on my online weekly radio shows is starting to have people who were never involved in the natural health field, to take notice of how we the people are being manipulated and used as experiments which the food and drug companies with their friendship and financial rewards to the powers that be, are getting wealthier by the minute – of course, at our expense.  Dr. Rhonda

BUT IF YOU MUST EAT PORK…

i-really-love-to-eat-porkCook pork cuts to 145  degree F  (they can still be pink inside) and ground pork to 160 degrees F.  To avoid skin infections, take care not to handle raw pork with bare hands if you have any cuts or sores, and always be sure to wash your hands and all equipment that has come in contact with it.

Friends, please understand, your health  is serious business and you must stop thinking – I like it!  Do you like sickness, disease and even worse?  Stop playing with words, it’s your body I’m trying to teach you how to start taking better care of yourselves. bacon
