The Worlds Top 5 Lifestyles & Diets for Health, Fitness, Vitality and Beauty in 2018

The Worlds Top 5 Lifestyles & Diets for Health, Fitness, Vitality and Beauty in 2018

Which Lifestyle and Diet Did YOU Follow in 2018!

Number 1

Dr. Young’s pH Miracle Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet

 

Victoria Beckham keeps her slender physique in shape by following the pH Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet, recommended by Robert O. Young PhD. This plan means you ingest ONLY alkaline foods and liquids to keep your acidic levels in your blood, interstitial fluids, intracellular fluids at an alkaline pH between 7.35 and 7.45. All of these fluids can be tested with the Full-Body 3-D Bio-Electro Scan and the non-invasive blood testing of the chemistry, including pH of the blood, stomach, intestines and interstitial fluids.

To learn more about these non-invasive medical tests click here: (http://www.universalmedicalimaging.com/index.html

The following chart lists some of the acidic foods on the pH Miracle Alkaline Diet to eliminate completely or eat sparingly:

The following chart lists some of the foods you can eat freely on the pH Miracle alkaline diet:

The supermodel Elle Macpherson stated that following a plant-based pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet and taking supplements have helped her look younger than her 54 years. (wwwijuicenow.com and http://www.phoreveryoung,com)

 

“When I turned 50 I realized things I did in my 20s weren’t working anymore,” Macpherson said. “I follow a plant-based alkaline diet, focusing on healthy, whole food. I take green powder and protein powder every day, and I drink three liters of water a day.” (www.ijuicenow.com, http://www.phoreveryoung.com)

So where does a 6’7″ man who weighs over 270 pounds get his protein from? Tony Robbins eats broccoli! Over 50 percent of the calories from steamed organic broccoli comes from protein. It is important to note that the body does not build muscle from protein – it builds it from red blood cells. Muscle, bone, and all organs and glands are made from red blood cells NOT protein! Tony is a strong advocate and walking testimony of Dr. Young’s alkaline lifestyle and diet which he teaches from the stage at ALL his events.

 

Prince Harry and Meghan follow the pH Miracle Alkaline Lifestyle and Diet. In fact it was Meghan who introduced Harry to the alkaline lifestyle.

 

So what keeps Tom Brady so healthy, fit and strong at the age of 41 and still playing NFL Football? The answer is the pH Miracle alkaline lifestyle and diet!

Number 2

The Vegan Diet

 

Beyonce is a big fan of Marcos Borges 22 days of Vegan program which is a vegan meal service. Although not a full vegan, the singer ordered in the service to get in shape for Coachella. “The benefits of a plant-based diet need to be known,” Beyoncé said. “We should spend more time loving ourselves, which means taking better care of ourselves with good nutrition and making healthier food choices.”

The following are just a few of the foods I recommend that you can eat freely when following an Vegan Diet as outlined in The pH Miracle revised and updated book and The pH Miracle for Weight Loss – http://www.phoreveryoung.com

Number 3

The Ancient Grains Diet

 

To keep her energy levels at an all-time high, Angelina Jolie snacks on ancient grains such as quinoa, chia seeds, millet, buckwheat and spelt. “She’s into eating products made from ancient grains and raves about their health benefits,” a source told Marie Claire. “She claims they provide her with nutrients she can’t find anywhere else, plus shinier skin.”

The wonderful benefits of ancients grains like quinoa, millet, buckwheat and spelt, they are low in carbohydrate (sugar) and higher in protein. Keep in mind though I only recommend these grains sparingly and no more than 10 grams of protein daily.

Remember, all body cells, including bone and muscle are made from blood NOT protein. And blood is made from chlorophyll (green foods), unsaturated oil, alkaline water and mineral salts or sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium.

Number 4

The Paleo Diet

 

Jessica Biel credits her super svelte physique down to the Paleo diet. Heavily endorsed by Pete Evans, the diet works on the ethos you go back to eating like a caveman and eradicate dairy, grains and legumes from your diet. “Eating Paleo just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat and water-weight right off your body,” says Jessica. “I do a lot of cooking at home using fresh fish or lean meat like chicken and vegetables,” she adds.

The Paleo diet will provide short term benefits but long term damage from ALL the acidic foods from dairy, legumes and grains such as wheat. You are better off with both short and long term benefits by sticking with a diet that does not cause eventual gland, organ and tissue damage. That diet would be low carbohydrate, low protein and liberal amounts of healthy unsaturated oil, like hemp seed, flax seed, broccoli seed, carrot seed, cabbage seed, just to name a few.

Number 5

The Atkins Diet

 

Kim Kardashian lost 25 kilos in 11 months on the Atkins diet, which is a high acidic protein, low carb diet. “ Anyone who has had kids knows your body changes, and it’s hard to get your body back in shape,” she said. “It takes so much determination, and mental and physical power and energy.”

Unfortunately this diet also has short term benefits with long term damage, especially to the intestinal villi if you are ingesting animal protein which does not digest (unless you juice the animal flesh). Maybe that is why Kim looks bloated in the lower abdominal area. It is important to stay away from this diet unless your protein sources are from green plants such as avocado, broccoli and buckwheat.

Check out the above list of foods to avoid and especially avoid animal sources for safe and healthy weight loss.

My Self-Care to a Self-Cure From Lupus

get-attachment-1.aspx“Hi, my name is Ida Kolader from Amsterdam. It always amazes me that people are so skeptic, almost afraid it seems, about a natural approach. And yet, have complete faith in traditional medical doctors, synthetic drugs, the pharmaceutical industry and their search for a miracle cure or better yet THE miracle cure.

Why Supplement Vitamin K1? Especially Children Who Are NOT Ingesting Liberal Amounts of Green Vegetables!

High levels of a protein called MGP are associated with cardiovascular disease!

The work, published in the American Journal of Hypertension, indicates that these high blood levels of inactive matrix Gla protein, or MGP, may help identify those at the highest risk for cardiovascular disease and who might benefit most from vitamin K supplementation, says Mary Ellen Fain, student at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University and the study’s first author.

Active MGP appears to be the only natural inhibitor of vascular calcification and vitamin K the only known activator of MGP.

When MGP is active, calcium also circulating in the blood, binds to it — instead of the lining of blood vessel walls — so it gets eliminated by the body.

“We know that the lifespan of patients on hemodialysis is reduced, that cardiovascular disease accounts for about half their deaths and that vascular calcification is a key contributor,” says Dr. Norman Pollock, bone biologist at MCG’s Georgia Prevention Institute.

Inactive MGP is what’s circulating in the blood, and the investigators measured those levels in 37 African-Americans on hemodialysis as well as 37 age and race matched healthy individuals. In people on hemodialysis, they also measured arterial stiffness as well as endothelial function, based on the ability of their blood vessels to perform basic functions like expand and contract in response to the body’s demands.

They found mean levels of inactive MGP were 5.6 times higher than in healthy controls and those high levels correlated with increased arterial stiffness and impaired endothelial function.

Researchers noted that like vitamin K levels, vascular calcification is difficult to measure directly, so they measured these two related indicators of cardiovascular health.

The MCG study appears to be the first to look at the relationship between circulating levels of inactive MGP and these markers in this very high-risk group. The deleterious impact on cardiovascular health they found held even after adjusting for other established risks like diabetes and high body mass index and blood pressure.

Just why the balance of active versus inactive MGP is off in these patients is unknown, but these individuals may simply need more vitamin K to maintain sufficient levels of active MGP, Pollock says.

He notes that their colleagues at R&D Group VitaK, at Maastricht University in The Netherlands, have shown that kidney dialysis does not affect vitamin K levels. Higher calcium levels in the blood also are not a guarantee of vascular calcification, Fain adds.

Heart disease and kidney disease are among the leading causes of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. African-Americans are among those at highest risk for both, and kidney failure significantly increases the risk of heart disease. The reason is very simple – the ingestion of highly acidic foods, such as beef, chicken, turkey, duck, pork, fish and dairy products and eating very little green fruit and vegetables!

Vascular calcification occurs most extensively in individuals with chronic kidney disease, particularly in those on hemodialysis, which is considered lifesaving in patients whose kidneys have failed.

Vitamin K is active only about six hours after it’s consumed, and is found in green leafy vegetables like spinach, cabbage, kale, grasses, as well as olive oil.

There’s increasing evidence that Vitamin K, better known for its role in bone health, has a role in cardiovascular health as well. Calcium is typically important for strong bone, and that’s where we store most of it. It even normally helps blood vessels with their usual contraction and relaxation in response to your body’s demands. But with vascular calcification caused from an acidic lifestyle and diet, there is a double whammy as calcium gets pulled out of bones to reduce blood and interstitial acidity, so the bones they get weaker, and deposited in blood vessel walls which become stiff. All caused by acidic lifestyle and dietary choices, according to Dr. Robert O Young, a research scientist at the pH Miracle Center.

Although not yet used clinically, the circulating, inactive MGP measured in the newly published studies is widely considered an indicator of cardiovascular risk. Additionally, measuring inactive MGP levels is the only way currently available to gauge vitamin K levels, which cannot be measured directly.

In October 2017, Pollock and Fain published a study in, The Journal of Nutrition that showed otherwise healthy teens who consumed the least amount of vitamin K had 3.3 times higher risk of an enlargement of the pumping chamber of their hearts and that the chamber pumped out less blood.

To prevent or reverse Vitamin K deficiency and the risk of cardiovascular disease and bone loss it would make sense to begin to supplement Vitamin K1.

Looking for a potential solution that can improve your physical, mental and emotional health?

The medicinal industry of today’s age is an interesting one, as there happens to exist a prescription per health concern. Given that the average consumer has more than one health problem to worry about, said drugs seem less beneficial. This is why there is so much talk surrounding Hemp CBD oil and its many holistic health benefits.

In general, CBD has been reasoned as a full-body relief achiever because of its antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-bacterial properties, just to name a few of its many benefits. The purpose of this review is to introduce YOU to the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil.

As the market continues to welcome new brands, it is crucial to assess their quality. Thus, some factors that will be explored in relation to the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil include its intent, production process and uses.

What is the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil?

Screen Shot 2019-05-22 at 9.03.46 AM

iJuice Hemp CBD Oil has been created with the intent of enhancing wellness of varying age groups. The approach is taken in coming up with our formula that revolves around the use of hemp extract, which has been fully grown in the US.

Rather than an oil, the essential is to be appropriate as a tincture. This is an important point because oils are harder to swallow or infuse in meals, compared to tinctures, which are typically known for their bearable taste factor and light consistency.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 85 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant. CBD is becoming increasingly popular amongst the masses for having a wide scope of medicinal benefits – due to clinical reports and research papers of test data showing little to no side effects and a lack of psychoactivity (typically associated with marijuana products and high THC).

Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only a major phytocannabinoid, it is the most concentrated form from the three main cannabis plants. The three main forms to use cannabis are Hashish, Resin, & Oil.

Phytocannabinoids

With iJuice Hemp Oil we use PCR (Phytocannabinoid) rich Hemp Seed Oil. For the first time in 1964, CBD isolation was reported and it was the beginning of cannabinoid synthesis.

Originally, this synthesis started on CBG, but since CBG is present in most of the Cannabis types in small amounts, the majority of the research was concentrated on THC and CBD.
Besides the Cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in nature, pharmaceutical companies have synthesized cannabinoid compounds in order to market leading drugs in the pharmaceutical market. Some of these chemically modified drugs do not have psychoactive effects, but retain some of the health benefits from the cannabinoid properties. However, some of these synthetic drugs can have a life-threatening adverse effect, or cause other issues in the human body. Phyto-cannabinoids, on the other hand, have been used for many years, and no life-threatening side-effects have ever been reported.

How does CBD work in the human body?

CBD or cannabidiol is the main active compound in hemp, and unlike THC, it is not psychoactive, so it doesn’t make people high. As you know, inside the human body there’s the endocannabinoid system, with receptors spread throughout the brain and body.

The History of Hemp

Hemp has a very vast history that cannot go unnoticed. We are very excited to be at the forefront of what we believe is the most valuable commodity to mankind.

Hemp History Facts:

First American Flag was made from Hemp
George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew Hemp
Ben Franklin made Hemp paper
The Declaration of Independence was drafted on Hemp
Hemp was used as rope for ships, and it was a required crop in the American colonies
Hemp has been grown for the last 6,000 years
Hemp was used as money in the 1800’s
You used to be jailed for NOT growing Hemp
You can make over 25,000 products with Hemp

Cannabis Industry:

The Cannabis industry is projected to be at 50 billion by 2026. There are over 23,000 studies that show the benefits of medical cannabis for a variety of diseases and health conditions. It’s backed by an enormous body of scientific research, enthusiastic public opinion, and more progressive cannabis laws, which is giving cannabis the reputation it deserves as a groundbreaking health solution.

How Does iJuice CBD Oil Work in the Human Body?

At iJuice, Inc. our CBD products utilize the full spectrum Cannabis plant mixed with Hemp Seed oil and iJuice Essential Oils (www.ijuicenow.com}. Not all hemp is created equal. Our CBD Oil is made from NON-GMO, PESTICIDE FREE, CO2 extracted Hemp Oil.

In our experience, a full spectrum plant gives the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) the full cannabinoid profile of CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, in order to substantiate the health claims. We have over 120 cannabinoids in our CBD formulas which perfectly inhibits the CB2 receptors in the body. Other competitors claim to have a 99% purity which is usually in the form of “Isolate” or an “Extract”. Although the purity level is higher, the body is only receiving CBD, not the full cannabinoid profile. CBD Isolate is cheaper to manufacture, and when the CBD is isolated, those products lose their effectiveness.

So what is “the Whole Plant”?

The whole plant contains CBD, and other natural plant constituents (terpenes, flavonoids, secondary cannabinoids, etc.) that are found in all parts of hemp. When we say “whole plant” we are referring to the variety of constituents (more than 500 trace compounds) in the hemp oil itself.

As with so many aspects of this amazing plant, the answer is simple: There is no single active ingredient, no magic molecule in hemp. The many cannabinoids and compounds found in hemp work together, synergistically, to create outcomes they could not achieve on their own. Scientists call this ‘the entourage effect,” and it’s been proven over and over.

Likewise, the diverse compounds and chemicals in hemp combine and interact to create a sum that is greater than its parts. For instance, the aromatic terpenoids that give hemp its distinctive smell have been proven to block some receptors in the brain, while making it more likely for cannabinoids to bind to other receptors. Play this dynamic out across and among hemp’s hundreds of compounds, and you begin to understand why whole-plant CBD oil is more effective than the single-molecule.

Serving Suggestions

Remember….not all CBD oils are created equal.

ISOLATE VS. FULL SPECTRUM

We are below the Federal Legal Limit and have less than 0.3% THC by dry weight which you can find the test data upon request. Even though in most cases our CBD products are NOT detectable on a urine or saliva test, we recommend that you check with your Employer or whom it may concern before taking our hemp based products.

What can be Founded Regarding its Quality?

Besides the fact that US-growth hemp has been utilized, the team at iJuice have taken the necessary steps to rid their solution of THC, a psychoactive property and an oxidant or acid. Ever since CBD and other cannabinoids have been discussed, consumers have been unconvinced because of their association with THC. To rid one of such doubts, the oil has been filtered to remove any existing THC traces.

Intriguingly, the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil is labelled full spectrum, which implies that the whole plant was used. However, due to the elimination of THC, this solution is actually a broad spectrum (i.e. mix of cannabinoids excluding THC). As for the actual extraction process, consumers are notified that the oil has been cold-pressed and unrefined and has undergone CO2 extraction – a process trusted as the industry standard.

Finally, with any CBD-related oil, a key facet that needs exploring is its delivery. If the delivery fails, then consumers will not be able to reap the supposed benefits of CBD. To avoid such problems, iJuice claims to have embedded a sublingual delivery system. This allows consumers to take the oil underneath the tongue, allowing its contents to reap right into one’s blood without traveling through the alimentary canal.

What can Consumers Expect From its Uses?

Based on the claims made, consumers can expect the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil – a 30ml bottle containing 250mg. of full spectrum – to help with anxiety and stress, chronic and acute pains, clarity and concentration levels and insomnia.

Final Thoughts

Overall, it is clear that the iJuice Hemp CBD Oil has been created with regulations and industry standards in mind. In addition, consumer wellness and comfort has also been addressed, as the oil contains no traces of THC.

Finally, the measures taken to ensure that the contents are efficiently delivered to the body shows the commitment we have for consumers’ health.

Why Should YOU Supplement Fat-Soluble Plant-Based Vitamin K1 and D3 Daily?

Screen Shot 2019-05-18 at 10.13.47 AM.png

Vitamin K is a name given to a group of fat-soluble vitamins. They are considered essential cofactors in humans for the production of several proteins that are involved in coagulation homeostasis and calcium homeostasis. The original term vitamin “K” comes from the K in the Germanic word Koagulation meaning the ability to clot blood or prevent hemorrhage. Much has been learned about vitamin K and its role in osteoporosis, vascular calcification, osteoarthritis, cancer, and cognition over the past few years. The most commonly known vitamin K types are listed in below along with their corresponding functions and sources.

Deficiency of vitamin K has been linked with vascular calcification and osteoporosis [1]. Matrix GLa protein (MGP) is a vitamin K-dependent protein that inhibits vascular and soft tissue calcification when activated.

Vitamin K is also a cofactor for carboxylation of glutamate to gamma carboxyglutamic acid (GLa). GLa containing bone proteins are synthesized by osteoblasts and have been identified as osteocalcin, matrix GLa protein, and pit protein S. Carboxylated osteocalcin (OC) increases after vitamin K administration and there is a connection between uncarboxylated OC and the risk of clinical fractures [2]. Vitamin K2 (MK-4) supplementation is quite safe and does not induce hypercoagulation even at doses of 15 mg three times a day [3].

The daily recommended requirement for vitamin K is 90 μgm/day for women and 120 μgm/day for men [8]. Sources of vitamins K1 and K2 are listed below. Deficiency based on bleeding problems is rare, except in newborns. Prior to the use of prophylactic vitamin K injections in neonates, deficiency of vitamin K would result in a hemorrhagic condition with associated cutaneous, intrathoracic, gastrointestinal, and intracranial bleeding.

Vitamin K and Osteoporosis

Vitamin K appears to improve bone quality, which leads to a reduction in fractures; however, bone density may not always be affected in some studies. The lifetime risk of having at least one fracture is reduced by 25% with the daily use of 800 IU vitamin D, 45 μgm vitamin K2, and 1200 mg calcium [10]. Vitamin K (MK-7) from fermented soybeans stimulates osteoblasts and inhibits osteoclasts resulting in an anabolic effect on bone calcification [11]. A systematic review (level of evidence I [LOE = A]) has shown vitamin K to prevent fractures in vertebra by 60%, hip fractures by 77%, and non-vertebral fractures by 81% in Japanese patients [12]. This rivals conventional bisphosphonate therapy.  A study (LOE-B) with 241 osteoporotic patients treated with vitamin K2 (45 μgm/day) along with calcium showed that they maintained their bone density, whereas those on calcium and placebo lost 2.5% of their lumbar bone density. Furthermore, the treatment group had 65% fewer fractures [13]. In clinical studies, vitamin K maintains lumbar bone mineral density (BMD), reduces age-related osteoporotic fractures, reduces glucocorticoid-induced osteoporotic vertebral fractures, and maintains lumbar BMD in liver-dysfunction-induced osteoporosis and in paralytics it increases the metacarpal BMD in upper extremities of patients with cerebrovascular disease [14]. A three-year randomized control trial (RCT) (LOE = A) study showed that supplementing vitamin K at 180 μgm/day reduced the usual age-related decline in BMD in the lumbar spine and femoral neck but not the total hip. Vitamin K (MK-7) also prevented the loss in vertebral height in the lower thoracic spine [15].

Supplementation of low dose vitamin K1 (500 μgm/day) for 3 years (LOE-B) did not improve bone density in the treatment group [16]. Another study where vitamin K1 was used for two years resulted in no significant change in bone density compared to placebo. However, there were significantly fewer fractures in the treatment group (50% reduction) [17]. Also noted was a significant reduction of incident cancers in the treatment group (LOE = A).

The United States and Canada do not have recommendations for the use of vitamin K1 for osteoporosis as well as no recommendations for vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is recommended as standard of care in Japan where most of these studies have taken place.

Vitamin D3, calcium, and vitamin K1 supplementation reduces undercarboxylated osteocalcin and improves lumbar bone mineral density [18]. Thus, the addition of vitamin K is essential for good bone health.

 

Vitamin K and Cardiovascular Disease

Vitamin K inhibits vascular calcification by matrix GLa proteins. These proteins are activated via vitamin-dependent carboxylation. Activated matrix GLa protein identified in atherosclerotic plaque may prevent calcium precipitation [19] and soft tissue calcification [20]. In a prospective population-based study (LOE-A) of 4807 subjects free from myocardial infarction at baseline followed up for 7 years, the odds ratio of the highest stertile intake of menaquinone (vitamin K2) compared to the lowest resulted in a significant risk reduction in coronary heart disease, 0.43 (CI 0.34–0.77); all-cause mortality, 0.74 (CI 0.59–0.92); and severe aortic calcification, 0.48 (CI 0.32–0.71). The intake of phylloquinone (vitamin K1) was not found to impact any of the targeted outcomes [19]. A cohort study (LOE = B) of 16057 women free from cardiovascular disease at baseline with a mean follow-up of 8.1 years revealed that for every 10 μgm increase in vitamin K2 intake there was a 9% reduction in coronary events. Again, vitamin K1 intake was not significantly related to cardiovascular outcomes [21]. One study found that low serum vitamin K1 in antihypertensive medication users was significantly associated with coronary artery calcium progression [22].

Vitamin K and Arthritis

Emerging data is revealing that vitamin K may be important in preventing disabling osteoarthritis. Abnormal mineralization of cartilage and bone has been seen with insufficient vitamin K intake [23]. A longitudinal study comparing patients who have subclinical vitamin K deficiency to those that have adequate intake has shown an increased risk of developing knee osteoarthritis (risk ratio [RR]: 1.56; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.08–2.25) and cartilage lesions (RR: 2.39; 95% CI, 1.05–5.40) [24]. An 3-year RCT (LOE = A) assessing vitamin K1 supplementation versus placebo showed no overall effect of vitamin K on radiographic hand arthritis; however, those who had insufficient vitamin K at baseline that later attained sufficient concentration at follow-up did have a trend to less joint space narrowing (47% less joint space narrowing) [25].

There is evidence that Vitamin K supplementation reduces inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis by reducing CRP levels [26]. Vitamin K2 may induce apoptosis in rheumatoid arthritis synovial cells. In a cross-sectional study (LOE = B), the group given 100 μgm of MK-7 had a significant reduction in disease activity score along with improved biochemical markers (ESR, CRP, and matrix metalloproteinase) after 3 months [27].

Vitamin K and Renal Calculi

Urinary GLa protein inhibits precipitation of various calcium salts. Vitamin K is required for the carboxylation and activation of this protein [28]. It has been suggested that reduced carboxylase activity such as that seen in urolithic patients may play an important role in calcium oxalate urolithiasis [29].

Vitamin K and Diabetes

Even though it is known that there are high levels of vitamin K in the pancreas, deficiency in vitamin K results in excessive insulin release and reduces clearance of glucose from the blood in rats [30]. Recently, a placebo controlled trial (LOE = A) showed that using 30 mg of vitamin K supplementation increased insulin sensitivity in healthy young men via osteocalcin metabolism [31]. Vitamin K1 500 μgm/day for 36 months improved insulin resistance (significantly lower HOMA-IR) in men but not in women [32]. Increased vitamin K1 intake in a cohort study (LOE = B) was shown to decrease risk of developing diabetes by 51%. A recent review suggests that vitamin K supplementation may be used as a novel adjuvant therapy to improve glycemic control and quality of life [33].

Vitamin K and Cancer

Much research is taking place presently looking at the vitamin K family and its potential anticancer effect [34]. Vitamin K may safely suppress growth and invasion of human hepatocellular carcinoma via protein kinase A activation and result in moderate suppression of tumor recurrence [35]. It has also been shown to result in growth suppression in a dose dependent manner in lung cancer cells in vitro [36]. Similar results were found in pancreatic cancer cells [37]. A cohort study (LOE = B) of over 11,000 patients showed that higher vitamin K intake was associated with a significant reduction in advanced prostate cancer in particular [38]. There was no association with higher vitamin K intake and reduction of prostate cancer.

Vitamin K and Cognition

The essential role of vitamin K in the synthesis of sphingolipids in the brain has been known for more than 40 years [39]. More recently, vitamin K dependent proteins such as Protein Gas6 have been shown to play a key role in the peripheral and central nervous system [40]. Vitamin K may have a role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease because of its regulatory role in sulfotransferase activity and growth factor/tyrosine kinase receptor activity in the brain [41]. There is evidence that vitamin K1 intake in the elderly with Alzheimer’s disease is significantly lower than in controls in the community [42]. Intake of vitamin K may improve cognitive function in healthy older adults. One such study showed that vitamin K1 was associated with better verbal episodic memory performances especially on recall tasks [43]. The use of vitamin K antagonists has been associated with more frequent cognitive impairment [44].

Warfarin and Vitamin K Interactions

Warfarin anticoagulation results in osteoporosis and the need for vitamin K2 [45]. A study using vitamin K1 (150 μgm phytomenadione) daily in patients with unstable anticoagulation control showed that increasing and stabilizing the body’s stores of the vitamin allowed for better control of anticoagulation by maintaining steady activation of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors [46]. Recently, a study (LOE = A) has confirmed this again [47]. In the group receiving vitamin K supplementation, the median number of warfarin dosage changes was significantly lower than in the placebo group. The dose of warfarin required for the treatment group receiving 150 μgm of vitamin K1 was 16% greater than the control group.

Considerations of vitamin K supplementation with anticoagulation should include dose and type of vitamin K used. Extended intake of vitamin K1 of 700 μgm reduced INR values from 2 to 1.5. Vitamin K2 supplementation is more potent at reducing INR and 200 μgm of K2 will reduce INR values from 2 to 1.5. Thus, supplementation of >50 μgm of vitamin K2 requires INR monitoring [48].

The evidence that coumadin may increase fractures, arterial calcification, and mortality is still in conflict. One study looking at hemodialysis patients showed an increase risk of fractures in males but not in females. Also, there was a significant increase in aortic and iliac calcification.

Alarmingly, the hazards ratio for all-cause mortality was 2.42 in the warfarin treated group [49]. A recent case control study (LOE = B) looking at warfarin use in men has shown an increase in advanced prostate cancer by 220% after more than 4 years of use [50]. In another study, long-term warfarin use and risk for fractures compared to a matched cohort did not reveal an increased risk of fractures [51].

Conclusion

Some of the recent review articles suggest that there is insufficient information in the literature to recommend the use of vitamin K1 supplements to prevent bone loss, fractures, and osteoarthritis in humans [52]. Researches looking at these effects when supplementing vitamin K1 on bone density and vascular calcification are generally negative or show no difference.

Studies using vitamin K demonstrated improvement in bone quality rather than bone density, while significantly reducing fractures and preventing vascular calcification. For this reason, the literature is sometimes confusing and care must be taken to clearly look at the differences in actions of vitamins K1 and K2. There is a need for more research to be done on vitamin K2 in regard to its effect on arthritis, cognition, diabetes, renal calculi, and cancer.

 

Vitamin K in the form of MK-7 is rapidly becoming popular as a supplement and is available OTC usually with a dose of 100–120 μgm. It is important as physicians to be aware that MK-7 can interfere with anticoagulation therapy when used above 50 μgm/day [48]. On the other hand, the supplementation of some vitamin K at a steady level during anticoagulation therapy may result in a more stable INR that requires fewer adjustments. Using a small dose of vitamin K may benefit the patient by reducing the risk of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and vascular and tissue calcification. Well-controlled RCT studies are urgently needed in this area, especially given the well tolerated safety profile of vitamins K1.

Newer agents for anticoagulation such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban, and apixaban are not vitamin K-dependent. This would allow for the safer use of higher doses of vitamin K to prevent atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, and cognitive impairment, which may have the potential to reduce morbidity and mortality in this patient population [53].

The use of vitamin D3 and vitamin K1 together as an approach to osteoporosis treatment may significantly reduce morbidity and mortality. This approach may rival bisphosphonate treatment without the side effects associated with the use of this medication, along with reducing vascular calcification and its complications.

Parents Lose Custody of their Son for Switching to an ‘Alkaline Treatment’ After 2 Rounds of ‘Brutal’ Acidic Chemo

Screen Shot 2019-05-15 at 11.56.28 AM

The parents of a 3 year old boy in Tampa, Florida, who’s been bravely battling leukemia, are not happy after a local county court dismissed their request to treat their son’s cancer with a more natural alkalizing approach involving CBD oil and alkalizing dietary changes. Last week, a Hillsborough County judge made it clear to the parents of 3-year-old Noah McAdams that the primary form of treatment for their son’s cancer should be chemotherapy — and they’ve been ordered to get him started on it within the next 28 days.

Little Noah actually received two rounds of chemo treatments at John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, after which testing showed no signs of cancer, his parents say.

His parents, Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland-Ball, were also giving Noah homeopathic treatments that included CBD oil, alkaline water, food and herbal extracts.

The improvement in him, they say, was noticeable.

And so, armed with the belief that Noah was on the mend and that an alkaline alternative treatment might work better for him, the parents say they set out in search of a second opinion. They hoped to find an alternative protocol instead of continuing more rounds of the “harsh” chemotherapy his doctors recommended.

 

However, what resulted is being called a “medical kidnapping” by some.

According to WFLA, authorities were alerted when the parents failed to bring their son in to continue his treatments — treatments his doctors say are medically necessary.

McAdams and Bland-Ball were later stopped in Kentucky after taking their son across state lines to see another doctor, and lost custody of Noah shortly after.

“We’re not trying to refuse any kind of treatment,” Bland-Ball told reporters last week. “They think we’re refusing treatment all around, putting him in danger, trying to kill him. But not at all. We’re trying to save him.”

 

The couple then headed to court to fight for the right to seek alternative treatment for Noah, as well as regain custody.

 

But last week, they left feeling disappointed when a judge not only ruled against them but also postponed their custody hearing.

They’ve since been ordered to return Noah to chemotherapy treatment within the next 28 days. However, they were also told they can continue homeopathic remedies as well — so long as chemo is the main part of Noah’s treatment.

“This is not about whether we’re choosing alternative therapies — natural therapies,” Bland-Ball told ABC 13. “This is about … our rights as parents to seek other options.”

As for her reaction to the court’s ruling, Bland-Ball, who works as a holistic therapy assistant, told WFLA“I feel like it’s definitely increased my fight, my strength, and ultimately, my forgiveness because having to look at these people who have no regards for my son is difficult.”

The parents say they have their reasons for wanting to seek an alternative route of treatment.

While on chemo, Bland-Ball said Noah had “vicious mood swings” that made him violent and emotional. “He also started to lose his hair right away after the first treatment,” Bland-Ball told ABC 13.

McAdams argued that after Noah ended chemo and continued receiving homeopathic remedies, he was “completely back to normal,” which only added to their belief that a more natural treatment path was working.

“We want him to be treated with something that has less side effects,” Bland-Ball said. “Chemotherapy is so brutal on a body.”

In truth, it is. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), cancer cells grow fast, and chemo drugs, which are administered intravenously, attempt to kill the bad cells quickly. But as the drugs circulate throughout the body, they often kill off healthy cells too — cells that help the heart, kidneys, lungs, and nervous system function (to name a few).

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, “cancer is not a disease of the cells, tissues or organs but an acidic diseased state of the interstitial fluids that surround the cells that make up the tissues, glands, organs and red and white blood cells.  Cancer is a symptom of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet due to an inverted way of living, eating, breathing, thinking and believing.”

“Doctors try to give chemo at levels high enough to treat cancer, while keeping side effects at a minimum,” an article on the ACS site reassures. “They also try to avoid using multiple drugs that have similar side effects.”

Watching a 3-year-old endure the intense treatment has to be heartbreaking, especially when you consider that chemotherapy during childhood has been linked to other health problems in patients later on in life. Still, chemo has been credited for saving millions of lives since it was first introduced in the 1940s.

 

On Wednesday, after a judge declared the chemo treatment was mandatory, the toddler’s parents were crestfallen.

 

“It is a mixed bag, in that we obviously have to watch this child go through chemotherapy,” their attorney, Michael Minardi, told ABC 4, “but at least we know with the use of cannabis and other treatments that the child will be able to deal with chemotherapy, rather than not being able to have those alternative treatments available.”

Most notably, cannabis has been found to help treat pain and nausea, common side effects during chemo treatments.

The American Cancer Society, however, warns that “relying on marijuana alone as treatment while avoiding or delaying conventional medical care for cancer may have serious health consequences.”

 

In addition, a doctor who spoke with ABC 13 strongly suggested that Noah’s parents simply don’t have all the facts to make their own medical calls.

 

“We have no way of saying that he is cured of leukemia this early in therapy,” said Dr. Bijal Shah, head of the Moffitt Cancer Center’s Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Program. “We cannot assume cure because we see remission.”

When you consider the timeline of events, it is rather unlikely that Noah’s cancer is completely gone. According to the Washington Post, he was diagnosed in early April and underwent just two weeks of chemo treatments.

“We busted out of that hospital — with no cancer cells left to spare,” an April 16 Facebook post by Bland-Ball read. “Doctors are amazed at his speedy healing and strength!”

The post also gave further detail into the natural remedies she’s been using with Noah, which include: rosemary, vitamin B complex, including B17, a completely alkaline diet, a liver/kidney/gallbladder/blood herbal extract, daily colloidal silver, high dosages of vitamin C, collagen, grapefruit peel and breast milk.

Now, the parents have shifted their focus to another pressing matter: getting their son back.

Right now, Noah’s being cared for by relatives, but his parents are fighting to regain custody. Until they do, they’re working with the Department of Children and Families to be allowed unsupervised visits.

 

Here’s hoping little Noah is reunited soon with his parents, who ultimately want the best for him!

LIQUID LIGHTENING ALKALINE MINERAL SALT CLAY CAN HEAL YOUR SKIN AND BODY

Screen Shot 2019-05-12 at 9.27.42 PM

‘In the beginning God gave to every people a cup of clay; and, from this cup they drank their life’.We have, long, heard of people eating clay known as either ‘geophagy’ (pronounced…gee-off-uh-gee), or, ‘pica’. Taber’s Cyclopedia Medical Dictionary defines geophagy as ‘a condition in which the patient eats inedible substances such as chalk, or earth’. And, it defines pica as ‘a perversion of appetite with cravings for substances not fit for food such as clay, ashes or plaster’.This craving I perceive is not perverted at all; but, makes sense when you know what mineral salt clay contains and what it does for the body. It has been credited with improving the health of many people suffering from a wide range of illnesses.These include: constipation, diarrhea, anemia, chronic infections and ‘out-fections’, skin ailments (such as eczema and acne), heavy-metal poisoning, exposure to pesticides (and other, acidic, toxins), arthritis, acid reflux, infertility, liver disease and obesity. It is the ‘secret ingredient’ in the treatment of hair-loss and diabetes, (both Type I and Type II)!

Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay provides an impressive assortment of minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, sodium and silica — all alkalizing to the blood and tissues and foundational in the production of other elements through nuclear transformations or biological transformations. [Sodium (11) + Hydrogen (1) <=> Magnesium (12)]. The minerals in this very special mineral salt clay exist in natural proportion to one another. This encourages their absorption through the pores of the skin when added to bath water. The body can tolerate a deficiency of vitamins for a longer period of time than a deficiency of minerals. A slight change in the blood concentration of important minerals can rapidly endanger life! In a mineral salt clay the elements of oxygen, silica, and potassium are spheres arranged in a regular three-dimensional pattern. The spheres are the building-blocks of the mineral salt clay minerals; and, the arrangement of the spheres determines the type of mineral. The character of the clay mineral group determines the type of the mineral salt clay and its eventual use. In other words, the clay mineral structure gives an understanding of its specific properties. Among the mineral salt clays suitable for human use, is Montmorillonite, the most common and the most sought-after. Montmorillonite clay was named after the town of Montmorillon, France where it was first identified. This mineral salt clay belongs to a group of clays known as smectite, a word that describes its layered structure.

The smectites are one of seven clay mineral groups. Each group contains a certain number of species and variations on the layered structure. The mineral salt clay that I recommend for bathing is structured in a single silica tetrahedron and is the main building-block of Montmorillonite clay and the best clay for healing when added to bath water.  Montmorillonite mineral salt clay is an old Home-Remedy that people have used since the beginning of time for various reasons. And it is my personal belief that mineral salt Montmorillonite was possibly the Manna that was given to the children of Israel by God as they wandered through the wilderness for 40 years.Its origins are as simple and basic as the old practice of putting mud on a bee sting or a boil.

What Makes Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay So Special?

The Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral SaltClay minerals occur in very small or colloidal particles. They are extremely fine-grained and thin-layered…more so than any of the other salt clay minerals. The layers contain ions that are very loosely, bound to one another…and, easily exchangeable. Not only will acidic toxins stick to its outside surface; but, numerous toxic elements and organic matter will enter the space between the layers.

In addition to its already unique structure, Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has a particularly large surface area when properly hydrated with distilled water…which further boosts its adsorptive and absorptive properties.

These two words look alike but their difference is critical in understanding the functions of Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay minerals. Adsorption characterizes the process by which substances stick to the outside surface of the adsorbent medium. The mineral salt clay possesses unsatisfied ionic bonds around the edges of its mineral particles. It naturally seeks to satisfy those bonds. For this to happen it must meet with a substance carrying an opposite electrical or ionic charge. When this occurs, the ions held around the outside structural units of the adsorbent medium and the substance are exchanged. The particles of Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay carry a negative, electrical charge; whereas, impurities or metabolic and/or dietary toxins carry a positive electrical charge. For this very reason Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has been used to adsorb the colloidal impurities (sugar, lactic acid, uric acid, alcohol and other exotoxins and mycotoxins) in found in fermented foods, acidic foods, like beef, chicken, fish, pork, soda pop, coffee, black tea, cheese, milk, yogurt, corn, peanuts, tobacco. digestive enzymes, hormones, chocolate, vinegar, beer, wine, liquor, and cider. For example, the impurities in wine carry positive charges; and, can be chelated or coagulated (bound together) and removed by stirring a small amount of negatively-charged Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay material into the wine or beer. The clay particles attract the mycotoxins or alcohol in the wine or beer and they settle to the bottom of the bottle or glass together.

The process works the same in the human body. When Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay is absorbed through the proes of the skin while bathing, the positively-charged exotoxins and mycotoxins are attracted by the negatively-charged edges of the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt minerals. An exchange reaction occurs; whereby, the mineral salts in the clay swaps its ions for those of the other substance. Now electrically satisfied it holds the acidic toxin in suspension until the body can eliminate both of them through the pores of the skin. The term ‘active’ or ‘alive’ indicates the ionic exchange capacities of a given salt clay mineral. The degree to which the salt clay mineral ions become active determine its classification as ‘alive’.

Living bodies are able to grow and change their form and function by taking within themselves ‘lifeless’ material of certain kinds; and, biologically transforming it into a part of themselves. No dead body can adsorb just as no dead battery can provide energy. It is, physically impossible. That is why Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay is such a powerful substance!

IT IS ALIVE!!!!!

Chemically and structurally Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay is shaped like a credit card with negative charges on the flat surface and positive charges at the edges. Therefore, the negative charge is many times more powerful than the positive charge. One scoop of Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has a surface area of 800 square meters. To give that some serious perspective that’s about ten football fields! The greater the surface area of the clay the greater the power to pick up positively-charged particles or acidic toxins many times its own weight.

If we go back to our base physical components we can safely say that we are built from multitudes of particles (from dust you are and to dust you will return) held together by electrical bonds. Electrical forces are what hold atoms and molecules together. Chemical bonds and reactions depend on the electrical forces. Therefore, all chemical reactions are in essence reorganization of electrical forces which continue to be vital at body levels, i.e., tissues, glands and organs. When this is all taken into account a living organism is shown to be an extremely intricate electrical system.

During sickness or disease the vital life-force is weak and incapable of supporting the body and its functions. In health and fitness however the opposite occurs: the life-force or ‘zeta potential’ is strong and able to counteract sickness and disease (or, should I say spoiling and rotting). What keeps the white blood cells moving and doing their work of clearing out toxins is the energy that feeds it, the substance of life – the ‘zeta potential’. The body will not run well; or, will at least run with all sorts of mechanical problems when there is no life-force energy or ‘zeta potential’ to support it.

When Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay is consumed through the pores of the skin while bathing its vital life-force or ‘zeta potential’ is released into the physical body; and, mingles with the vital life-force of the body creating a stronger, more powerful energy in the host. Its, colloidal particles are agents of stimulation and transformation capable of withholding and releasing energy at impulse. The natural magnetic action transmits a remarkable power to the organism and helps to rebuild vital ‘potential’ through the liberation of latent energy. When it is in contact with the body its very nature compels it to release its vital force: the, vital force from which so many plants and animals feed.

Therefore, in order to create health and true fitness the body MUST BE STIMULATED and, stimulated by another working energy force or ‘zeta potential’ like Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay!

When the white cells, the garbage collectors of our body fluids do not function at their best the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay supports the body’s inner resources to awaken the stagnant energy by binding acidic metabolic, dietary, respiratory and environmental waste know as exotoxins and mycotoxins. It also supplies the body with the available magnetism which includes a magnetic field of energy and an electrical field of energy, to run!

WELL! In this way the body’s natural immune system has an improved chance of restoring the alkaline design of the body or the alkaline pH by removing morbid acidic matter and acidic metabolic and dietary waste thereby maintaining health, energy and fitness.

How is Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay Used Externally in the Normal Old Home-Remedies?

The Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has a powder consistency and is ready to be used when mixed in your bath water.

Old-Timers would make a gel/paste made when adding a small amount of water to the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay powder and then directly applying this gel/paste to the skin for a drawing-effect as in the case of a bee sting, mosquito bite, boil, spider bite, stinging nettle, etc. If the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay gel or paste is not covered it will dry out; and, as it dries you will feel it draw and pull. If you want a tightening-effect as in the case of a facial for acne, pimples, or minor cuts leave it on until it is almost, but not totally dry. Then remove with a warm wet washcloth and, splash with warm water to remove all traces of the mineral salt clay. If you want an even more ‘cooling and soothing effect’ such as for burns or scrapes and bruises; cover the gel with a plastic covering or wet cloth so that it won’t dry out. If you are not sure which technique would suit your needs best, then you can often alternated between covered and uncovered applications of the clay. Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has been applied once or twice daily or even left in place overnight, as desired.

Other external uses for the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay have been as a fine talcum powder or a diapering powder.

Instructions for using Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay:

There are many different ways of using the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay externally; but, most all start out with putting 2 to 3 scoops in a bath of water and then soaking for 20 to 30 minutes to pull metabolic and dietary acids from the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium [the largest organ of the body] through the pores of the skin, [One square inch of skin contains 37,500 orifices for removing metabolic and dietary acids that cause irritation, inflammation, induration, ulceration and degeneration].

You can also ,take the gel about the consistency of mayonnaise or mustard by mixing 2 parts water with 1 part Liquid Lightening Alkaline Salt Clay. Apply generously in a ½ inch to ¾ inch layer directly onto the skin. An alternative that allows for more mobility is to apply the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt on a piece of ‘cheese cloth’; and, fold the cloth as if making a ‘burrito’. Secure to the skin with an ‘Ace’ bandage.

After applying there are several options:

Uncovered: Some people apply the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay leaving it uncovered allowing it to dry. As it dries it will ‘draw’ or ‘pull’. Remove before the clay is totally dry.

Covered with Cloth: Covering the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay with a cloth will secure it to the desired spot and cause the clay to dry more slowly.

Doing this enables you to leave the clay in place overnight or to be able to be mobile during the day without the clay transferring to clothing and household furniture. Wetting the cloth with water will slow the drying rate and increase the ‘cooling sensation’. Again remove the clay pack before it is totally dry; and, replace it with a fresh application of Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay gel, if desired.

Covered with Plastic: Covering the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay with plastic wrap or a plastic bag keeps the clay from drying at all which is the desired effect if you are applying it to a burn. Even though the clay will not dry when covered with plastic some people prefer to replace it twice daily.

Other people have found that even leaving the pack in tact on a burn for two or three days will produce beautiful new ‘pink skin’.

Using the Dry Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay:

People say using it as a baby powder causes diaper rash to disappear before the next diaper change. Some people have reported a ‘drawing-healing action’ when the clay is applied to an open infected wound.

If you have never used the  before and plan on using it for the first time on your skin expect a REAL TREAT!

Here are some testimonies from people after using the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay for four weeks:

* No more skin rashes

* No more acne

* No more dandruff

* NEW AND, INCREASED HAIR GROWTH!!!

* Less ‘wandering-pain’ all over my body

* Clearer skin

* Enhanced growth and tissue repair of gums and skin

* Softer skin

* No more brown skin spots

* Skin is less dry and feels more hydrated

* After soaking my feet in a water bath of clay no more toe fungus

* My skin feels tighter and younger

* The redness on my face is almost gone after all these years!

Recent Research

A smectite montmorillonite clay has been shown to transform several kinds of bacteria is at the forefront of new research into age-old, nearly forgotten, but surprisingly potent cures. Among the malevolent bacteria that this clay has been shown to transform the so-called “flesh-eating” bacteria or mircroform (M. ulcerans) on the rise in Africa.  The bacteria or microform is called MRSA, which unfortunately has been blamed for the recent deaths of two children in Virginia and Mississippi. (According to my research bacteria does not cause disease – it is the evidence of biologically transforming matter,
caused by a declining acidic pH of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium.  My reserach has shown that acids from diet, metabolism, respiration and the external environment is the cause all sickness and disease.)

“There are very compelling reports of clay treating infections, but that’s anecdotal evidence, not science,” said Lynda Williams, an associate research professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, Tempe. Williams is
coordinating three teams of U.S. researchers (at ASU, USGS, and SUNY-Buffalo) studying healing smectite clays under a two-year, $440,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health-National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Her ASU
colleague Shelley Haydel is lending her expertise in clinical medicine to perform the microbiological research.

For thousands of years, people have used clay to heal wounds, soothe indigestion, and eradicate intestinal worms. Though the practice has declined in modern times, the recent rise of acidic drugs that cannot destroy germs has scientists looking more closely at these ancient remedies to learn exactly what they can do and how they do it.

According to my own research a  smectite montmorillonite clay, like the Liquid Lightening Alkaline Mineral Salt Clay has the ability to neutralize acids from diet and metabolism and protect the body from cells transforming into bacteria, yeast
and/or mold. The beautiful thing about this salt clay is that it can adsorb and then absorb toxins or acids 100 times it own mass.

In laboratory tests at ASU’s Biodesign Institute, co-PI Haydel, an assistant professor in the School of Life Sciences, showed that this clay transforms bacteria associated with many human illnesses, including:  Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), penicillin-resistant S. aureus (PRSA), and pathogenic Escherichia coli (E. coli).

This special smectite montmorillonite salt clay also transforms Mycobacterium ulcerans, a microform related to leprosy and tuberculosis that is present when metabolic and dietary acids start breaking down the flesh in a condition current medical savants
refer to as flesh-eating disease Buruli ulcer.

This effect was first described in 2002, by Line Brunet de Courssou, a French humanitarian working in the Ivory Coast, Africa, who cured Buruli ulcers with daily applications of the acid buffering French clay she knew from childhood.

The DO’s and DONT’S of an ALKALINE DIET!

The DO’s of an ALKALINE DIET

Due to their valuable ingredients, certain foodstuffs have an alkalizing and health-enhancing effect. Learn the foodstuff which should be on top of your menu.

Vegetables are the most important source of nutrients nature has to offer. It provides alkaline-forming minerals, energizing proteins and a multitude of cell-protecting vitamins and secondary plant substances – with a really low calorie and sugar content. In addition, there are dietary fibers and enzymes which we need to ensure regular digestion. Greens such as leafy vegetables and salad should account for the major part of our diet as they reveal a wide range of nutrients and are good chlorophyll suppliers.

Grasses vereineunite all benefits of green vegetables in themselves –even exceeding them. Edible types include types such as wheat grass, barley grass, oat grass, couch grass and field horsetail. Some of them are available in health food stores but they can also be taken in as food supplements.

Sprouts and germlings from the seeds of corn, legumes and other plants are loaded with minerals, vitamins, proteins and enzymes. In addition, they are more wholesome than raw or cooked peas, lentils and so on. Homegrown sprouts and germlings can usually be harvested within a few days and guarantee absolute freshness all over the year.

Soy in the form of soybeans and soybean sprouts as well as tofu is an excellent source of proteins and contains a number of unique secondary plant substances protecting not only the cells.

Nuts, seeds and oils made of them provide valuable fatty acids. If you soak almonds, sesame or linseeds, you can even increase their nutritional value as the water activates the enzymes contained therein.

Fish is valuable food as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids as well as in other vital nutrients and is advised as a transitional food for those who are starting out on their alkaline journey. Like all animal products, it generates acids in the body though – this is why we should only enjoy it occasionally and in moderation. It is important that the fish is freshly caught. Advisable species are salmon, sea bass, red snapper. But you should avoid shellfish. Some of the shellfish species are really omnivorous and do not even spare feces of other fish.

Herbs and spices refine every dish and lend some extra health to it. Fresh green herbs provide us with an additional portion of chlorophyll. Garlic, onions and ginger in turn combat harmful micro organisms, and chilli, cayenne and cumin stimulate digestion.

The DON’Ts of an ALKALINE DIET

A lot of widespread food takes an active part in making the body overly acidic and colonizing it with pathogenic micro organisms. In an alkaline diet we should avoid such food or eat it very sparingly.

Meat, milk and eggs as well as any products made of them contain protein which the body metabolizes acidly. Moreover: Animal food is rich of saturated fats burdening the cardiovascular system and putting high demands on digestion. In addition, milk sugar or lactose, like any other type of sugar, encourages the growth of yeast.

Sugar is primarily responsible for the spread of yeast as it is its preferred food. This is true both for white retail sugar and for brown sugar, fructose or the sugar contained in honey or syrup. If you abstain from eating sweet things can sustainably prevent fungal infections. Artificial sweeteners are no alternative either as the body also forms acids out of them.

White flour made of wheat grain is one of the strongest acidizers and – like sugar – allows the development of yeast. It serves as a basic ingredient of a lot of bakery and pasta products – from bread via cake through noodles. It is true that types such as millet, buckwheat or spelt generate clearly fewer acids – cereals should not account for more than a maximum of 20 per cent of the daily diet though.

Convenience products such as foil dishes, deep-frozen menus or canned soups are inconsistent with a healthy diet as even the few good ingredients lose their nutritional value in processing them. Mostly, they even contain sugar, hydrogenated fats or artificial additives which have and acid-forming effect. By the way, this also applies to condiments such as ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise as well as to pickled or marinated foodstuff.

Yeast refers to a certain group of quickly reproducing fungi which colonize our body and can make us ill. This is why we should avoid yeast-containing products. Since yeast – in the form of brewer’s baker’s or nutritional yeast – is hidden in a multitude of foodstuff and beverages – from beer through bread to spice blends and broth – it is advisable to read ingredients lists carefully and look for alternatives, if required.

Fruit is not unhealthy but rich in sugar and therefore has an acidizing effect on the body. This is the reason why only small quantities of fruits with high sugar content such as pear, apple or banana should be consumed. Limes and grapefruit, instead, contain less fructose and have an alkalizing effect after consumption. For a chart showing the fructose content of fruits, please go to the website of the German Association for Nutrition .

Luxury foodstuffs such as coffee, tea and spirits increase the development of acids. Coffee increases the production of gastric acid and fosters digestive problems. Beer, wine and a lot of spirits are produced with the help of yeast fungi which may damage the body in the same way as alcohol does.

Pure Energy

THE INCREDIBLE POWER OF MOLECULAR REDUCED MAGNESIUM BRINGING CUTTING EDGE NUTRITIONAL SCIENCE TO YOU NOW!’

SCIENTIFIC BREAKTHROUGH!

THE MOST POWERFUL SELECTIVE ANTI-OXIDANT, ALKALIZER, ENERGIZER AND CELL HYDRATOR IN THE WORLD!

WITH AN INSTANT IMPACT ON ALKALINITY, BLOOD QUALITY AND ENERGY!

Our mission is to make optimal health as easy and as cost effective as possible. We are constantly researching to find the most effective and natural ways to achieve and maintain optimal health, fitness and vitality for our-self, our families, our friends and our clients. So we am extremely excited to share with you our latest and greatest breakthrough research in nutritional science!

Nearly every health condition and chronic dis-ease have three factors often associated with them:

Excess metabolic and dietary acidity in the interstitial body fluids
That excess interstitial acidity triggers tissue inflammation
This tissue inflammation activates cell signaling to release anti-oxidants or acid buffers to protect the tissues, glands and organs.
Medical Science has been looking at a way of tackling these three issues for quite some time now.

We have recently discovered that molecular activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) that is potentiated with lithium ions tackles all of these problems! It acts as a super anti-oxidant or a super anti-acid, a super anti-inflammatory, a super neutralizer of excess metabolic, dietary, respiratory and environmental acids, acting alone as its own cell signaling molecule!

In our body’s, activated and reduced magnesium that carries an extra electron (MgOH-) acts as a very powerful and selective anti-oxidant helping to prevent cellular damage from acid caused inflammation, protecting DNA and combating out of control metabolic and dietary acids that are the primary cause of cellular degeneration.

According to my recent research published in the medical journal, “The International Journal of Complimentary and Alternation Medicine”, entitled, “Alkalizing Nutritional Therapy in the Prevention and Reversal of Any Cancerous Condition!”, I suggest: “As deficiencies are corrected in the intracellular and interstitial fluids with key alkalizing nutritional treatments, patients see the difference in the improved interstitial pH and chemistry counts through follow-up tests using quantitative non-invasive 3-D FBBES. They also feel the difference physiologically and functionally with increased energy and vitality.

This is how I know proper alkalizing nutritional support in any cancerous condition is important in the prevention and treatment of cancer, the metastasis of cancer, and the shrinking of a cancerous cyst or mass without chemotherapy and-or radiation. The best part about these alkalizing nutritional treatments is they are helpful in most, if not in all cancerous conditions.”

There are now well over 1000 studies from peer reviewed medical journals discussing the countless health benefits from elemental magnesium.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) has been shown to reduce inflammation and joint discomfort, increase stamina and energy.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) has shown promise to be cardio protective, neuro-protective, offer intestinal protection, skin rejuvenation and many more conditions caused by metabolic and dietary acids that are not properly eliminated via the four channels of elimination – skin, lungs, bowels and kidneys.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) also acts as a powerful cell signalling molecule to maintain our cellular communications system. The interference in this through excess metabolic and dietary acidity is the cause of many health and fitness problems in the body.

THE BENEFITS OF ACTIVATED AND REDUCED MAGNESIUM

The health benefits of activated and reduced magnesium are new to the world.

This was because, until NOW, the delivery was only attainable through:

Electron-enriched ionized water (inefficiently delivered from water current electrical

ionization).

Electrons release through hydroxyl Gas from a metallic cylinder under high pressure.

The problem with these delivery systems is that electrons disappear very quickly and therefore are not very accessible to our cells to buffer or neutralize metabolic and/or dietary acids.

Basic chemistry has demonstrated that in the stomach, the generation of electrons carried by sodium bicarbonate is more complete and faster than any other means.

BENEFITS INCLUDE:

FAST RED BLOOD CELL TRANSFORMATION: Immediate improved difference which is viewable using phase contrast microscopy in just five minutes.

ALKALIZING EFFECTs: Pure Energy(TM) is a potent alkalizer serving to effectively neutralize all types of metabolic and dietary acids in our body including lactic acid.

NEGATIVE-CHARGED ORP EFFECT: Pure Energy(TM) has a high Negative-Charged Oxidative Reduction Potential. My electron tests show an ORP of up to -1000mV! In this case the negative-charge is good, not bad and represents a concentration of free electron energy! As we age, we oxidize or ferment, like an old car that rusts. Things that oxidize have a positive ORP or positive-charge. Therefore if we want to slow down the aging (rusting or fermenting) process, then it’s a good to ingest foods, liquids or supplements that carry a negative-charged ORP. This was only available before with an expensive water ionizers – but is now available in supplement form to all through my latest invention called Pure Energy(TM).

BIO-AVAILABLE: Pure Energy(TM) is activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium and is 100% bio-available, so it will act on ALL of the body’s fluids, tissues, glands and organs.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Pure Energy(TM) acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory in the body because it neutralizes the metabolic, respiratory, dietary and environmental acids that cause inflammation.

ENHANCED CELLULAR HYDRATION: Pure Energy(TM) has been shown to increase cellular hydration by enhancing the ability to move alkalizing extracellular water into the cell.

ENERGY PRODUCTION: Pure Energy(TM) when added to distilled or purified water will activate and reduce and potentiated with lithium as it releases electron-energy which becomes available to the mitochondria in our cells. Activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium also increases electron stores in the liver and may improve functioning of all organs in the body by increasing stores of available electron energy.

ANTI-AGING: Aging is created by the body being broken down by metabolic and dietary acids. By having a continual supply of electrons released from activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium, the body can use the increased electrons to neutralize the acids that cause aging and slow down the aging process.

SPORTS RECOVERY & LEGAL PERFORMANCE ENHANCER: By increasing alkalizing cellular hydration, reducing the acids that cause inflammation and most importantly reducing the lactic acid by up to 18% that causes inflammation that leads to pain, Pure Energy(TM) is a powerful sports performance and recovery enhancer.

POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT: Due to its extremely small size (0.24 Trillionth of a Meter), it can spread throughout the body in seconds and penetrate all tissue, cells, and cell components providing rapid protection from metabolic and dietary acids.

SELECTIVE ANTIOXIDANT: Activated and reduced magnesium has special SELECTIVE properties that allow the abundant release of electrons to deal with the “bad” acid but leave the “good” alkalizing buffers, such as sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide to do their tissue protective jobs.

HOLISTIC ANTIOXIDANT: Due to its molecular size, Pure Energy(TM) can provide protection to the inside and outside of body cells; external surface of the cell membrane (lipid-bi-layer), the extra-cellular matrix, plasma, interstitial fluids and all external surfaces of cells, organs, and all tissue.

PURE ENERGY(TM) ENABLES THE PRODUCTION OF YOUR BODY’S OWN ANTIOXIDANTS: Acts as a natural Nrf2 transcription factor activator that allows the body to make its own antioxidant compounds (e.g., superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase).

CELL SIGNALING: Cell signaling is a way the body can send a message to different parts of the body to supply it with required red blood cells. The released hydroxyl ions or OH- that releases an extra electron has recently been found to act as a cell signalling molecule. The release of this electron from reduced and activated magnesium acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

NATURAL & SAFE: Pure Energy(TM) contains natural mineral ingredients and tested to be 100% safe, even at high doses. There are no known negative direct or side-effects.

HOW TO PREPARE THE PURE ENERGY(TM) MAGNESIUM FOR ACTIVATION AND REDUCTION:

1) Take a 12 ounce surgical stainless steel bottle and fill the bottle to the top with distilled or purified water. Make sure there is no air at the top of the bottle where electrons might escape.

2) Drop one Pure Energy(TM) magnesium tablet in the water and immediately seal the bottle with the screw on top in order to trap all the electrons inside.

3) Let the distilled or purified water sit for 2 hours while the magnesium activates and reduces.

4) When you are ready to drink the Pure Energy(TM) activated and reduced magnesium water you can take off the lid or you can flip up the straw to drink. Drink the whole 12 ounces once opened.

Please note that the Pure Energy(R) activated reduced magnesium water is stable and drinkable for up to 1 year as long as the cap or the lid has not been opened.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Drink one 12 ounce Pure Energy(TM) activated reduced magnesium water in the morning and one 12 ounce Pure Energy(TM) activated reduced magnesium water in the afternoon.

An Acidic Diet and Lifestyle Is More Deadly Than Smoking and the Cause of Heart Attacks, Diabetes and Cancer!
0-23
 
A new landmark study published in the Lancet found that, poor or acidic diet is responsible for more than 1 in 5 deaths globally, making it more deadly than tobacco.
56490433_2279593142307593_6088655710231461888_o
 
Consuming both low amounts of healthy alkaline foods and high amounts of unhealthy acidic foods are key to these findings.
 
These unhealthy highly acidic foods include, beef, chicken, pork, duck, turkey, fish, dairy, eggs, vinegar, sugar, alcohol, vinegar, carbonated drinks, energy drinks, coffee, black tea, just to name a few.
56757529_2279600538973520_7246026650633109504_n
 
The healthy alkaline foods include, low sugar fruit like tomato, avocado, grapefruit, cucumber, peppers of all colors, lemon and lime and vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, arugula, celery, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, just to name a few.

What you put on your plate can play a serious role in how likely you are to die before your time: According, to the study, a poor or acidic diet is actually the leading cause of death worldwide, contributing to more of them than conventional risk factors like tobacco use.
Screen Shot 2019-01-22 at 1.52.33 PM
 
In the study, researchers analyzed food consumption habits of adults ages 25 and older from 1990 to 2017 in 195 countries and compared how their diet affected their chances of premature death.
Screen Shot 2019-04-07 at 7.43.21 AM
 
They found that in 2017, 11 million deaths—or 22 percent—worldwide were caused by a poor acidic diet. More specifically? Of these deaths, 9.5 million were due to cardiovascular disease, over 900,000 to diet-related cancers, over 330,000 to diabetes, and over 136,000 to kidney diseases.
 
On the other hand, more commonly known risk factors like high blood pressure and tobacco use was linked to 10.4 million and 8 million deaths, respectively. Researchers also found that a poor acidic diet is linked to more years lived with disability, too.
 
According to Dr. Robert O Young at the pH Miracle Research Center, USA, “an acidic diet is an equal opportunity killer and the number 1 cause of ALL sickness and disease!”

The following are the references to this very important 27 year Lancet published study validating the work of Dr. Robert O Young, who suggested in 1984 that there is only one sickness, one disease and one treatment.
 
This one sickness and one disease was described by Dr. Young as the over-acidification of the blood and interstitial fluids of the Interstitium due to an inverted way of living, eating, drinking, breathing, thinking and believing. He then suggested that there was only one treatment in order to restore the alkaline design of the body fluids by using an alkaline lifestyle and diet as described in his research, published papers and books, such as, A Nutritional Approach to the Prevention and Treatment of Any Cancerous Condition, The pH Miracle, The pH Miracle revised and update, The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, The pH Miracle For Diabetes, The pH Miracle for the Heart and The pH Miracle for Cancer.

URCC Global champ Mark Striegl on The pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet

Reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion Mark “Mugen” Striegl
Reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion Mark “Mugen” Striegl

Reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion Mark “Mugen” Striegl, 30, of the Philippines is one of the mixed martial artist with the best physique, which he developed without the help of steroid. A nutrition expert himself, he recently shared some advice on what to avoid when trying to lose weight.

“People get stuck on fads,” Striegl said in an exclusive interview at the Cove Manila at the Okada Manila in Parañaque City, Metro Manila, Philippines on April 1, 2019. At the same venue on April 27, 2019, he will defend his URCC Global Featherweight World Championship title in the co-main event of “URCC Global: Raw Fury.”

“They try like some new diet fads, like some new thing and they get stuck on it and they think that it’s the cure, the miracle drug, the miracle diet,” Striegl continued.

“The miracle steroid,” I jokingly added. The reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion laughed. He was previously accused of taking steroids by his most recent opponent, former URCC Global Featherweight World Champion Do Gyeom “The Undead” Lee, 27, of South Korea.

“There is no quick fix for weight loss,” Striegl told me. “It’s just good old-fashioned hard work and consistency with the clean diets. Consistency is the key, you know, and when people wanna have a cheat meal because they’ve earned it and they lost like 5 lbs, you know, lost a few pounds, the cheat meal sometimes ends up as a cheat day, and then a cheat weekend, you know.”

Weight cutting is something MMA fighters have to live with and sometimes, athletes even do it the unconventional way. For those who want to excel in sports, it is necessary to be very good with diets, Striegl noted.

“There’s no substitute for hard work and I take very good care of my body,” the reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion shared. “Clean diets. I’m on the ph alkaline diet right now.”

Striegl’s challenger at “URCC Global: Raw Fury” is MMA veteran Shunichi “Rolling Star” Shimizu, 34, of Japan. Watch my full interview with the reigning URCC Global Featherweight World Champion here:
