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.

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.

Are YOU Prepared for the BioHazardous Effects from 5G EMF Radiation?

A Revolutionary Way to Improve YOUR Well-Being, Energy, Performance & Quality of Life

Commissioner: The International Tribunal of Natural Justice

Scientists have discovered that when all classical sources of matter and energy are removed, creating what is referred to as a vacuum, there is still energy present, even at absolute zero point energy. This discovery has redefined empty space with the definition of a quantum vacuum – a substantive quantized medium filled with harmonic zero-point energy oscillations. This sea of continuous energetic oscillations has now been identified by some physicists as the elemental source of all mass, form and structure.

Subtle Energy Field or SE

 

The quantum vacuum must have coherent modes of oscillations in order to give rise to mass, form, and structure. Indeed, the geometry of these oscillation modes are now being discovered by scientists to have very fundamental functions at the base of reality and that this constant flux of quantum energy is intrinsically and integrally entangled. This universal network of the vacuum harmonic oscillations of the zero-point field can be considered as information exchange in innumerable quantum computational units, or Planck spherical oscillators, where each Planck sphere is one bit of information. It is this unified space memory network that in-forms and connects all things to produce coherence, order, and systems intelligence.

Resonance-based technologies are a way to tap into the vital source of quintessential energy that has been identified as the source of the material world, called quantum vacuum energy. Replicating the magnetohydrodynamics naturally occurring in a variety of astrophysical objects, which couples plasma modes to the harmonic structure of the quantum vacuum — the Harmonic Flux Resonator (HFR) replicates and transfers quantum energy.

ARK® crystals have been designed and precision engineered, based on 30 years of research, to couple with the same dynamics as the HFR, enabling this remarkable technology to link with the nonlocal entanglement network and energetic dynamics of the quantum vacuum. Once activated by the HFR, ARK® crystals can be used to increase coherence and vitality in almost any system placed in their active proximity.

ARK® crystals are precision engineered to specifically interact with the zero-point dynamics of the vacuum to link with and harness the energy and information of this primary quantum field. Empirical investigations have demonstrated the high efficacy of this resonance-based technology: ARK® crystals have been shown to have significant effects on water structuring, (the human body is 70 percent water) increasing system coherence, and optimizing biology for healthy generation, regeneration, health, energy and vitality of your body.

The water molecule has a tetrahedral geometry, just like that of quartz (SiO4), and the fundamental geometry of spacetime — enabling a significant structural resonance between these quintessential domains. It is perhaps no coincidence that 90% of the Earth’s crust is silica (such as quartz), and 71% of the surface is water. The dynamic energetic interaction of these two substances comprising most of the surface is one reason Earth is such a hospitable place for life to thrive.

ARK® crystal technology represents a distillation and refinement of this natural beneficial interrelationship of quartz and water. Extensive testing of ARK® crystals shows that there is a significant interaction that gives water a supercharged effect, resulting in up to 200% greater growth rate of plants, immune boosting resistance to disease, and improvements in numerous markers of health and wellness. ARK® crystal technology harnesses vacuum energy to bestow increased health and life-supporting qualities of water.

ARK® crystals are a revolutionary technology that greatly boosts the body’s natural ability to attune with the vitalistic and expansive zero-point field of the quantum vacuum. The quantum vacuum represents the revelatory understanding in modern physics that space is not empty; on the contrary, it is the one thing that connects all things.

The zero-point field of space is a nexus of quantum entanglement, and when the body is able to attune with it, like a crystalline oscillator, it comes into harmonic resonance with this inexhaustible source of energy, coherence, and connectedness. This is demonstrated by the ARK® crystals in the numerous tests that have shown their effects in optimizing biological functions, allowing the cellular system to communicate more coherently, facilitating rejuvenation and optimization of function.

A remarkable achievement has been realized in the field of crystal technology with the first-ever development of the Advanced Resonance Kinetics (ARK®) crystal.

Scientists and engineers have been concerned with signal and noise since the early days of radio and telephone communications. Noise in electronic systems has come under intense scrutiny in recent times, especially since the amount of electronic information we process and transfer is enormous. Signal and noise are also important in biological systems. In communications within the body itself, in maintaining health and avoiding disease, signals are vital. If inappropriate signals are processed in the body, this can result in a sickness or disease. Further, we are attempting to understand life and death from a fundamental perspective, have formulated that ‘signals’ and their processing are compatible with life while noise and its proliferation constitutes death itself. Any organized system requires transmission and interpretation of specific signals. When signals breakdown, and when noise overtakes the signals, then chaos results and disorder prevails. If it is transitory, health could be restored. If it is permanent, then death might results. In fact, one might posit that life is a constant struggle to maintain a certain amount of signal in spite of ongoing noise. Thus, we see in physics and in biophysics – in the world around us and the one within us – that reduction and possible elimination of noise is an important task. We define a parameter called Signal-to-Noise ratio or simply S/N which should be larger than 1.

In other words, signal should always be larger than the noise. In most physical systems, we operate in a way to maintain this condition. If S/N is less than 1 (signal smaller than noise), we are running into trouble. Under these conditions, a physical system will become useless, and a psychophysical system will become sick. Thus, reducing noise and preserving the integrity of a signal are necessary in many areas of human endeavor.

Let me review briefly the origin of noise and methods available for noise reduction in electronic systems.

NOISE REDUCTION SCHEMES

Noise is a fundamental property of all physical systems that operate at finite temperatures. Even the best electronic chips, manufactured under the most stringent conditions exhibit noise. This is due to the fact that in the atomic and molecular make up, ever so small imperfections make the electronic flow random, and hence the material becomes noisy. Now there is simple way, at least in theory, to reduce and ultimately eliminate noise. This is by reducing the temperature at which a device operates. As the temperature is reduced, the random motion of electrons in the device reduces; the noise contribution due to this effect also reduces. It is known that noise can be eliminated entirely when a device operates at absolute zero temperature. This temperature corresponds to -273 degrees Celsius (about -460 F).

NASA has employed this principle to reduce noise and receive meaningful messages from probes that have gone past the solar system. Thus, a simple method to improve S/N in electronic and perhaps physiological systems is to reduce temperature at which they operate. However, this is not practical, nor is it always possible. All life as we know it comes to a stand still at very low temperatures. No activity could take place in physical systems as well, the entire environment would become still and silent. In this silence, even signals do not exist. Therefore, radical temperature reduction is not a practical method for reducing noise. Other electronic methods are available in technology to extract signals which have levels much smaller than noise. However, all these require the power of a supercomputer, complex algorithms and advanced signal processing techniques. If a simple, practical method could be implemented for noise reduction, it will benefit immensely both our technology and medical sciences. A special method of noise reduction using very minute subtle energy fields (SE) is presented in what follows.

First, let us briefly understand what subtle energy fields (SE) so you can understand how ARK® manipulates these energies in reducing noise.

WHAT ARE SUBTLE ENERGY FIELDS?

The term Subtle Energy (SE) is of recent origin. SE could mean a physical energy, such as electromagnetic or acoustic, that is of such low intensity. In this definition of SE, we are dealing with a physical field which is of very low magnitude. Several scientists in the United States (Tiller, Bearden, Rein, Putoff, Green, Srinivasan) have studied SE and its effects. Though each has developed his own nuanced theory of SE, in general they all tend to concur that SE phenomena is related to a type of unified energy, and is not just a physical field of very low magnitude. Contemporary quantum physics has mathematically described and predicted the presence of a unified energy which underlies conventional transverse electromagnetic (EM) vectors. The concept of a subtle energy underlying EMF fields was first introduced by Bohm and Aharonov in describing quantum potentials as an implicate order “embedded in” our normal 3-D space. It has recently been proposed that an additional implicate order is embedded within the quantum potentials. This higher-dimensional space is composed of an energy which has been called time reversed waves, non-Hertzian waves, longitudinal waves, scalar waves, or zero-point energy. The classical EMF fields have been under investigation since the laws of Maxwell were established more than 150 years ago in England. We know all about the physical fields; we can generate, manipulate and use them for purposes such as long distance communication, computer applications and measurement techniques that are proliferating all around us. However, our knowledge regarding SE fields is expanding slowly.

PHYSICS OF SUBTLE ENERGY FIELDS – ZPE

Subtle Energy fields might be a fundamental manifestation of energy that underlies classical energy systems. We need to invoke current theories in physics to postulate possible scenario for SE production. It is known that what we thought of as vacuum or empty space is not really so. Quantum theory predicts this vacuum is really a container of enormous amounts of energy. Particles seem to appear and disappear out of this vacuum. Such processes are presently called Zero Point Fluctuations (ZPF), providing an infinite energetic background for the physical world. The manifestation of elementary particles from this vacuum and their disappearance proceeds continuously and is postulated as the basis for the formation of the universe as we know it. At the level of ZPF, Zero Point Energy (ZPE) is converted into matter and matter falls back into this ocean of ZPE. If we can ‘mine’ even a small part of this vast energy, we can theoretically supply the energy requirement of the world for a fraction of the cost of conventional energy sources. We are NOW currently doing experiments to extract this “free” energy source.

Now, one might ask, how is this ZPE connected with SE? It is likely that as particles are formed from vacuum (which as I said, is a concept emerging from quantum physics) there are associated radiations. As particles emerge and disappear, these radiations also appear and disappear. It is similar to when ripples are formed as stones are thrown into still water. As each stone disappears in water, it produces waves at the surface of water. Though there is no mathematical proof for production of SE through this method, it is likely such a mechanism exists in the vacuum state. Quantum mechanics postulates elementary particles do have specific energy states which have certain finger print radiation patterns. Hence the above model for subtle energy radiations is well within the possibilities of theories in modern physics. While the production and radiation of SE fields could possibly be within the realm of physics, the design and use of SE field devices most likely require novel engineering constructs. It is likely these SE fields can be focused and down-converted through special energy-information transduction techniques which couple the multidimensional SE fields to three dimensional force fields. It is likely, then, if SE fields are focused, they can be brought out from the Zero Point Energy itself. As SE fields emerge out of ZPE, they may be beyond physicality (and hence not possible to measure); however, after transduction, they seem to manifest as quasi-physical energies. Or they directly influence the behavior of classical field phenomena. After such a change in energy format, SE fields become ‘useful’ and take part in energy interactions with physical fields such as electromagnetic and acoustic.

SUBTLE ENERGY DYNAMICS

ARK® crystals fall within the category of SE field generation and its interaction with the physical world, especially with electro-magnetic and bio-electromagnetic phenomena. It has been proposed that magnetic vector potentials are the means by which energy exchanges occur between subtle energy fields and the physical world of electromagnetics. It is likely the energy generated through magnetic vector potentials from the fundamental ZPF is ‘pure’, and can influence fields and matter around it through resonance effects. Resonance occurs when two objects have frequencies of oscillations that are close to each other. When two such systems are in proximity, then they will resonate at the frequency dictated by the stronger of the two oscillations. For example, when a string in a guitar is plucked, any string which is at a nearby resonance will start oscillating at the driven frequency. Similarly, the strong oscillations at the fundamental ZPE level will couple with other material oscillations and organize them to its proper frequency. Further, the ZPE generated field is considered coherent. In other words, a pure noise free field is radiated from the ARK® crystals SE transducer. This would serve to bring electromagnetic phenomena to a new coherent order with less fundamental noise within the vicinity of the ARK® crystals. Thus, resonance and coherence are two important aspects of SE fields. The physical field that emanates from the SE device is highly coherent and induces resonance in material objects as well as electromagnetic force fields around it. The property of coherence is important in many systems, including the psychophysical. For example, information is transmitted across junctions in the human nervous system because of coherence. Even at the gross level, activities such as speech, movement of your limbs and other functions are possible because of a coherent behavior of many subsystems. We can see the effects of loss of coherence in diseases such as Parkinson’s and spasticity.

HOW CAN ARK® Crystals SUBTLE ENERGY WORK?

(1) ARK® crystals Subtle energy may directly influence the ordering of fundamental magnetic properties, which would regulate the fundamental magnetic behavior of all electromagnetic fields in the range of the subtle energy of the ARK® crystals.

(2) ARK® crystals subtle energy may be related to magnetic vectors, such that the vectors serve as the media whereby the properties of subtle energy are able to impact electromagnetic phenomena.

(3) ARK® crystals subtle energy may be the rarefied form of magnetic vectors, or one and the same phenomena.

(4) Other properties of ARK® crystals subtle energy may exist that impact sub-atomic particle phenomena through quantum field interactions, and thus they would indirectly influence forces such as magnetic phenomena. If the magnetic vector is used as a medium or vehicle to store and transport and disseminate this energy, it would carry the new magnetic value to the electromagnetic phenomena in the environment, most likely through the mechanism of resonance. The same result would occur if the magnetic vectors were physical attributes of non-physical subtle energies, as if they were the flip side of the same coin. Because electromagnetic radiation is composed of both an electric component and a magnetic component, the electric component will be always be directly affected by magnetic shifts. This is based on the principles of magnetics, where magnetic fields influence charged particles in motion such as photons, the carriers of electromagnetic force. Thus, if a SE technology such as ARK® crystals can influence electromagnetic phenomena, it would be theoretically expected to influence a wide variety of phenomena spanning physical, chemical, biological, and psychophysical systems. At the basic level of physics and chemistry, the following would be expected to occur in a ARK® Crystal Subtle Energy field. Electron flows become more efficient Electromagnetic interactions become more efficient Molecular bondings become more efficient!

WHAT IS ADVANCED RESONANCE KINETICS OR ARK®

If you make the assumption that phenomena, especially electromagnetic, is composed of raw, relatively chaotic subtle energies, and that it would be useful to convert these energies from raw to more refined and ordered states, then you need to do two things. One: you need to invent a technology that converts this raw energy into a more clarified, condensed and intensified form. How we did this is our proprietary trade secret. It is our honest opinion that we have succeeded, and we have been told by informed sources that we are the first engineering group to do so. Two: you need to apply this technology to a variety of phenomena to see where and how well it works. Especially electromagnetic phenomena. What we have found, using our current versions of this technology, is that each system, or each experimental target, appears to have its own resonant ratios of subtle energies. Therefore, we use the principles of resonant systems as our main model for converting raw, relatively chaotic subtle energy into refined subtle energy – and into proportions that match, and thereby influence, the target system. Resonance occurs when two objects have frequencies of oscillations that are close to each other. When two such systems are in proximity, then they resonate at the frequency dictated by the stronger of the two oscillations. For example, when a string in a guitar is plucked, any string on another guitar which is tuned to a nearby resonance starts oscillating at the driven frequency. Though actual subtle energy frequencies are beyond direct observation and current instrumentation measurement, we invented a clarification method that nonetheless effectively converts and refines subtle energies. The effects of the clarification process can be measured in the target system. We are conducting research and development in the field of material science, and discovering ways to use novel molecular oscillators to generate higher degrees of clarification and conversion. In the years ahead, this will allow us to gain a higher quality of refined subtle energy effects. This will allow us to have more precision and power with respect to target system matching and performance gains. Using these basic principles, we match a specific sympathetic resonator to the desired energy or performance state of the target system. We take our core ARK® crystals SR Technology and adjust it for the specific requirements of each system. In this way, we make our resonant technology “KINETIC” with the specific subtle energy requirements or constitution of that system.

With advanced resonance kinetics, ARK®, you finally have a technology that can protect your body fluids from adsorbing and absorbing highly acidic EMF bio-hazardous waste that can alter the chemistry/pH of your extracellular and intracellular fluids.

ARK® works like a tuning fork to synchronize with your own healthy anatomical vibrational frequency to reinforce your resonance frequency through additive biofeedback, protecting the body fluids and cells from outside disturbing or bio-hazardous electro-magnetic fields, coming from 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G that are transmitted through computers, cell phones, Wifi, electrical hair dryers, TV’s, power lines, electric cars, airplanes, etc.

This technology not only protects your body cells from EMF but more important it protects the delicate alkaline pH balance of your body fluids – the key to healthy well-being, performance and extraordinary quality of life.

Hydrogen: What Are the differences between H+, H2, H- and OH-?

Distinguishing between these different forms of Hydrogen can be confusing to those of you do not understand chemistry.

Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 8.02.13 PM

Here is brief clarification.

H+ = Atomic HydrogenAtomic Hydrogen:

Atomic hydrogen is number 1 on the Periodic Table of Elements. It consists of single proton and is an oxidant or acid.

However an atom of hydrogen rarely exists on its own because its unpaired proton eagerly seeks to join up with an electron stealing life-force energy from the body.

The H+ hydrogen ion is the basis of the pH scale that runs from 0 to 14. This scale is measuring the proton or acid concentration of any liquid.

The molecular form of hydrogen is more common.

H2 = Molecular Hydrogen

Screen Shot 2019-08-02 at 11.53.55 AM

H2 is a gas which forms when two hydrogen atoms H+ bond together and become a hydrogen molecule. H2 is also called molecular hydrogen. It consists of two protons and two electrons. Consequently it is the most common form of Hydrogen because it is stable with a neutral charge and therefore is NOT an electron donor or a proton acceptor and thus provides no life-force energy to the human or animal cell. Since it is a neutral molecule it is NOT an antioxidant and cannot bind or pickup protons as a scavenger of acidity.

H– = Hydride or Reduced Hydrogen

Hydride or reduced hydrogen is a hydrogen atom which has an extra electron. This means that it is a negatively charged ion, or anion. That is why Hydride ion (H-) has the minus sign distinguishing it from a regular Hydrogen atom (H+).

The extra electron means that H- is not an oxidant or free radical but is an antioxidant or chelator of protons or acids. H- or reduced hydrogen is the spark of life and a strong chelator of metabolic, respiratory, dietary and/or environmental acids and thus protects the alkaline design of the body. In other words, this form of hydrogen gives life energy and protects the human body from sickness and disease.

H– + H2O –> H2O + OH–

Hydride (:– ) also binds to Oxygen (O+) to form chemical compounds which are reducing agents or what is referred as an anti-acid or anti-oxidant which means against acid.

OH– = Hydroxide ion

Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 7.46.56 PM

Hydroxide (OH–) is also known as the hydroxyl ion. When water dissociates or comes apart into its component parts it forms OH– (hydroxide ions) and H3O+ (hydronium ions).

2H2O ⇆ OH– and H3O+

This reaction is reversible. The hydroxide ion also reacts with the hydronium ion (H3O+) to become two water molecules.

Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 7.43.22 PM

The Hydroxide ion (OH– ) is a base (alkaline). The Hydroxide ion is not a free radical but a strong anti-acid or anti-oxidant or proton acceptor.

H3O+ = Hydronium ion

A water molecule (H20) plus a hydrogen ion (H+) becomes a hydronium ion (H3O+). The H+ ion is a lone proton with a powerful charge. It does not exist on its own in an aqueous solution because it is immediately attracted to the unshared or paired electron in the oxygen atom of H2O. The result is Hydronium (H3O+). This process is reversible. Two water molecules can disassociate to form hydronium plus hydroxide.

2H2O ⇆ OH– and H3O+

Screen Shot 2019-08-03 at 7.49.24 PM

Experiments indicate that the proton (H+) is very promiscuous or damaging to DNA. It changes from one H2O partner to another many times per second creating a new H3O+ ion as it moves.

pH = The Potential of Hydrogen

pH stands for potential of Hydrogen and is actually a measurement of the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) in a solution. Water breaks down (dissociates) into protons (H+) and hydroxides (OH–). This reaction is reversible.

H2O ⇆ H+ and OH–
2H2O ⇆ OH– and H3O+

pH indicates whether water is proton saturated or acidic or an electron donor or energy donor or alkaline. More H+ = more protons or acids. Less H+ = more electrons or more alkalinity.

Because H+ immediately associates with H2O to form H3O+ (Hydronium), pH can also be said to be a measurement of the concentration of H3O+ in a solution.

The pH scale

The pH scale is logarithmic. Increasing by 1 on the pH scale results in a 10 times decrease in the proton ion concentration and increasing by 3 on the pH scale results in a 1,000 times decrease in the proton ion concentration.

At 57 years old, Paula Abdul is far from slowing down!

How Does She Do IT?

 The singer and dancer is currently prepping for her first Las Vegas residency — which begins Aug. 13 at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino — and she’s putting in the hard work, starting each day before the sun and going until late at night.

“It’s very physically intense,” Abdul tells PEOPLE. “I get up at 6 and I work with my trainer for an hour and a half. Then I go to rehearsals at about a quarter to 9. We do a warm-up and then we dance. We go from about 9:45 until 7 p.m., and we take one day off.”

The “Opposites Attract” singer has to treat her body well to keep going day after day.

“I do a lot of stretching,” she says. “When I’m with my trainer I’m doing Pilates, I’m doing a lot of back and core work. Even though I’m dancing all day I often do straight cardio just so that I’m conditioning my body. And after each performance I usually get in an ice-cold tub. It’s not fun! It shocks your body, but it helps with inflammation.”

Abdul also watches what she eats, partially because of the hours spent dancing, and partially due to her history with reflex sympathetic dystrophy(RSD), a type of chronic pain after an injury or surgery.

“When you have RSD, the best thing to do is lower your acidity to slow inflammation, so I follow a low alkaline diet,” she says. “I don’t like following diets but I try to keep the acidity down because that’s what causes flares up in my body. But I’m really blessed; I’m in remission and I’ve been in remission for years now.”

 

Dr. Robert O Young discovered many years that you cannot have inflammation without acid. He has stated, “acid is inflammation and inflammation is acid.”

 

Where do acids come from?

According to Dr. Young acids come from, “what you eat, what you drink, what you breathe, what you think and what you believe.”

DOES THE STOMACH DIGEST FOOD?

ROBERT O. YOUNG, MS, D.SC., PH.D. NATUROPATHIC PRACTITIONER

WHAT IS THE REAL PURPOSE OF THE STOMACH & INTESTINES?

Read, learn and understand the science of the stomach and the intestines true PURPOSE AND FUNCTIONALITY!

The following scientific discourse by Dr. Young are twenty-five important points to understand concerning the the real purpose of the stomach, the physiology of digestion, the creation of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach lining, the ingestion of protein, dairy, cheese and sugar in any form and how acid/alkaline biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy relate to health, sickness, and disease.

Unfortunately, contemporary medical doctors and scientists as well as alternative health practitioners and lay people DO NOT understand how acid/base are created in the body and the onset of latent tissue acidosis in the colloidal connective tissue of the “Schade” or the interstitial fluid compartments of the Interstitium.

Welcome to the 21st century and Dr. Young’s “New Biology.”

How is acid/base created in the body?

1) The parietal or cover cells of the stomach split the sodium chloride of the blood. The sodium is used to bind with water and carbon dioxide to form the alkaline salt, sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3. The biochemistry is: H20 + CO2 + NaCl = NaHCO3 + HCL. This is why I call the stomach an alkalizing organ NOT an organ of digestion. The stomach DOES NOT digest the food or liquids you ingest it alkalizes the food and liquid you ingest.

2) For each molecule of sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) made, a molecule of hydrochloric acid (HCL) is made and secreted into the so-called digestive system – specifically, the stomach (the gastric pits in the stomach) – to be eliminated. Therefore HCL is an acidic waste product of sodium bicarbonate created by the stomach to alkalize the food and liquids ingested and NOT to digest the food ingested.

3) The chloride ion from the sodium chloride (salt) binds to an acid or proton forming HCL as a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. HCL has a pH of 1 and is highly toxic to the body and the cause of indigestion, acid reflux, ulcers and cancer.

4) When large amounts of acids, including HCL, enter the stomach from a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, such as meat and cheese, acid is withdrawn from the acid-base household. The organism would die if the resulting alkalosis – or NaHCO3 (base flood) or base surplus – created by the stomach was not taken up by the alkalophile glands that need these quick bases in order to build up their strong sodium bicarbonate secretions. These glands and organs are the stomach, pancreas, Brunner’s glands (between the pylorus and the junctions of the bile and pancreatic ducts), Lieberkuhn’s glands in the liver and its bile with its strong acid binding capabilities which it has to release on the highly acidic meat and cheese to buffer its strong acids of nitric, sulphuric, phosphoric, uric and lactic acids.

5) When a rich animal protein and dairy product meal is ingested, the stomach begins to manufacture and secrete sodium bicarbonate (NHCO3) to alkalize the acids from the food ingested. This causes a loss in the alkaline reserves and an increase in acid and/or HCL found in the gastric pits of the stomach. These acids and/or HCL are taken up by the blood which lowers blood plasma pH. The blood eliminates this increase in gastrointestinal acid by throwing it off into the Pishinger’s spaces or what is called the interstitial fluid compartments of the Interstitium – the largest organ of the human body.

6) The space enclosed by these finer and finer fibers is called the Pishinger’s space, or the extracellular space that contains the fluids that bath and feed each and every cell while carrying away the acidic waste from those same cells. There is no mention of this organ in American physiology text books. There is mention of the extracellular space but not of any organ that stores acids from metabolism and diet, like the kidney. I call this organ the “pre-kidney” because it stores metabolic and gastrointestinal acids until they can be buffered and eliminated via the skin, urinary tract, or bowels.

67290186_2351053955161511_4862762333308452864_o

7) After a rich animal protein or dairy product meal, the urine pH becomes alkaline. The ingestion of meat and cheese causes a reaction in acidic fashion in the organism by the production of sulfuric, phosphoric, nitric, uric, lactic, acetyl-aldehyde and ethanol acids, respectively, but also through the formation and excretion of base in the urine. Therefore eating meat and cheese causes a double loss of bases leading to tissue acidosis and eventual disease, especially inflammation and degenerative diseases.

8) During heavy exercise, if the the resulting lactic acid was not adsorbed by the collagen fibers, the specific acid catchers of the body, the organism would die. The total collection of these fibers is the largest organ of the body called SCHADE, the colloidal connective tissue organ or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium. NO liquid exchange occurs between the blood and the parenchyma cells, or in reverse, unless it passes through this connective tissue organ or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium. This organ connects and holds everything in our bodies in place. This organ is composed of ligaments, tendons, sinew, and the finer fibers that become the scaffolding that holds every single cell in our bodies in place. When acids are stored in this organ, which includes the muscles, inflammation and pain develop. The production of lactic acid is increased with the ingestion of milk, cheese, yogurt, butter and especially ice cream.

That is why I have stated, “acid is pain and pain is acid.” You cannot have one without the other. This is the beginning of latent tissue acidosis leading to irritation, inflammation and degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs.

9) The more acidity created from eating meat, cheese, milk or ice cream the more gastrointestinal acids are adsorbed into the the collagen fibers to be neutralized and the less sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 that is taken up by the alkalophile glands. The larger the potential difference between the adsorbed acids and the amount of NaHCO3 generated with each meal, the more or less alkaline are the alkalophile glands like the pancreas, gallbladder, pylorus glands, blood, etc. The acid binding power of the connective tissue, the blood, and the alkalophile glands depends on its alkali reserve, which can be determined through blood, urine, and saliva pH, including live and dried blood analysis as taught by Dr. Robert O. Young. The saliva pH is an indication of alkali reserves in the alkalophile glands and the urine pH is an indication of the pH of the fluids that surround the cells or the Pishinger’s space or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium.

10) The iso-structure of the blood maintains the pH of the blood by pushing off gastrointestinal or metabolic acids into the connective tissue or the Pishinger’s space or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium. The blood gives to the urine the same amount of acid that it receives from the tissues and liver so it can retain its iso-form. A base deficiency is always related to the deterioration of the deposit ability of the connective tissues or the Pishinger’s space or the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium. As long as the iso-structure of the blood is maintained, the urine – which originates from the blood – remains a faithful reflected image of the acid-base regulation, not of the blood, but of the tissues. The urine therefore is an excretion product of the tissues, not the blood. So when you are testing the pH of the urine, you are testing the pH of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium that surround every organ, gland and tissue.

11) A latent “acidosis” is the condition that exists when there are not enough bases in the alkalophile glands because they have been used up in the process of neutralizing the acids adsorbed to the collagen fibers. This leads to compensated “acidosis.” This means the blood pH has not changed but other body systems have changed. This can then lead to decompensated “acidosis” where the alkaline reserves of the blood are used up and the pH of the blood is altered. Decompensated “acidosis” can be determined by testing the blood pH, urine pH and the saliva pH. The decrease in the alkaline reserves in the body occurs because of hyper-proteinization, (eating Meat and Cheese!)or too much protein, and hyper-carbonization, or too much sugar. This is why 80 to 90 year old folks are all shrunk up and look like prunes. They have very little or no alkaline reserves in their alkalophile glands. When all the alkaline minerals are gone, so are you and your battery runs down. The charge of your cellular battery can be measured by testing the ORP or the oxidative reduction potential of the blood, interstitial fluids, urine or saliva using an ORP meter or better a non-invasive test of the interstitial fluids of the Interstitium using electrodes on specific areas of the body (See picture below). As you become more acidic this energy potential or ORP decreases.

12) If there is not enough base left over after meat and cheese or sugary meal, or enough base to neutralize and clear the acids stored in the connective tissues, a relative base deficiency develops which leads to latent tissue acidosis. When this happens the liver and pancreas are deficient of adequate alkaline juices to ensure proper alkalization of the food in your stomach and small intestine.

13) Digestion or alkalization cannot proceed without enough of these alkaline juices for the liver and pancreas, etc., and so the stomach has to produce more acid in order to make enough base, ad nauseam, and one can develop indigestion, nausea, acid reflux, GERD, ulcers, esophageal cancer and stomach cancer. All of these symptoms are not the result of too much acid or HCL in the stomach. On the contrary, it is the result of too little base in the form of sodium bicarbonate!

14) Therefore the stomach is NOT an organ of digestion as currently taught in ALL biology and medical texts, BUT an organ of contribution or deposit. It’s function is to deposit alkaline juices to the stomach to alkalize the food and to the blood to carry to the alklophile glands!!!!

15) There is a daily rhythm to this acid base ebb and flow of the fluids of the body. The stored acids are mobilized from the connective tissues and Pishinger’s spaces while we sleep. These acids reach their maximum (base tide) concentration in this fluid, and thereby the urine (around 2 a.m. is the most acidic). The acid content of the urine directly reflects the acid content of the fluid in the Pishinger’s spaces, the extracellular fluid compartments of the body. On the other hand, the Pishinger’s spaces become most alkaline around 2 p.m. (the base flood) as then the most sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) is being generated by the cover cells of the stomach to alkalize the food and drink we have ingested.

16) If your urine is not alkaline by 2 p.m. you are definitely in an ACIDIC condition and lacking in alkaline reserves. The pH of the urine should run between 6.8 and 8.4 but ideally 7.2 or greater.

17) After a high protein meal or meat or cheese, the free acids formed such as sulfuric, phosphoric, uric, and nitric acids stick to the collagen fibers to remove them from the blood and protect the delicate pH of the blood at 7.365. The H+ or proton ions from these acids are neutralized by the next base flood, the sodium bicarbonate produced after the meal. The H+ or proton ion combines with the carbonate or HCO3, converts to carbonic acid, H2CO3, which converts to CO2 and H2O. The sulfuric and other acids from proteins are neutralized as follows where the HR represents any acid with the R as its acid radical (SO4, PO4, or NO3) HR + NaHCO3 <=> H2O + NaR (Ca, Mg, K)+ CO2.

18) Medical doctors and savants are not taught in medical school and therefore do not understand or recognize latent tissue acidosis. They understand and recognize compensated acidosis and decompensated acidosis. In compensated acidosis, breathing increases in order to blow off more carbonic acid which decreases PCO2 because of the lowered carbonate or HCO3. When the breathing rate can no longer get any faster and when the kidneys can no longer increase its’ function to keep up with the acid load, then the blood pH starts to change from a pH of 7.365 to 7.3 then to 7.2. At a blood pH of 6.95 the heart relaxes and the client goes into a coma or dies.

19) Metabolism of a normal adult diet results in the generation of 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton per day, which must be excreted if the urine acid-base balance is to be maintained. A meq is a milliequivalent which is an expression of concentration of substance per liter of solution, calculated by dividing the concentration in milligrams per 100 milliliters by the molecular weight. This process involves two basis steps; 1) the reabsorption of the filtered sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3 and, 2) excretion of the 50 to 100 meq of H+ or proton produced each day by the formation of titratable acidity and NH4+ or ammonium. Both steps involve H+ or proton secretion from the cells of the kidney into the urine.

20) Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) must be reabsorbed into the blood stream, since the loss of NaHCO3 will increase the net acid load and lower the plasma NaHCO3 concentration. The loss of NaHCO3 in the urine is equivalent to the addition of H+ to the body since both are derived from the dissociation of H2CO3 or carbonic acid.

21) The biochemistry is: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+. The normal subject must reabsorb 4300 meq of NaHCO3 each day! The secreted H+ or proton ions are generated within the kidney cells from the dissociation of H2O or water. This process also results in the equimolar production OH- or hydroxyl ions. The OH- ions bind to the active zinc-containing site of the intracellular carbonic anhydrase; they then combine with CO2 to form HCO3- ions which are released back into the kidney cells and returned to the systemic circulation. Second, the dietary acid load is excreted by the secretion of H+ or proton ions from the kidney cells into the urine. These H+ or proton ions can do one of two things: the H+ or proton ions can be combined with the urinary buffers, particularly HPO4, in a process called titratable acidity (The biochemistry is: H+ + HPO4 = H2PO4), or the phosphate buffering system or the H+ or proton ions can combine with ammonia (NH3) to form ammonium as follows: NH3 + H+ = NH4.

22) This ammonia is trapped and concentrated in the kidney as ammonium which is then excreted in the urine.

23) In response to acid load, 36% of the H+ or proton goes intracellular in exchange for the release of Na+ (sodium) into the blood stream. 15% of the acid goes intracellular in exchange for K+ (potassium) – common in diabetics. 6% of the H+ or proton or acid goes directly into the cell to be buffered by intracellular processes. 43% is buffered extracellularly (blood and interstitial fluids) as NaHCO3- or sodium bicarbonate combining with H+ or proton to form H2CO3 or carbonic acid which breaks down to CO2 or carbon dioxide to be released by the lungs. 10% of CO2 or carbon dioxide is excreted through the lungs and 90% is used by the body to reabsorb alkaline minerals and make sodium bicarbonate for buffering gastrointestinal and metabolic acids.

The biochemistry is:

CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 = HCO3 + H+.

24) Of all the ways the body can buffer metabolic and dietary acids, the excretion of protein (the eating of meat and cheese) generated acid residues is the only process that does not add sodium bicarbonate back into blood circulation. This creates a loss of bases which is the forerunner of all sickness and disease. In the long run, the only way to replace these lost bases is by eating more alkaline electron-rich green foods and long-chain polyunsaturated fats. Eating meat and cheese is definitely hazardous to your health. That is why I say, “a cucumber a day keeps the doctor away while eating meat, cheese and even an apple creates more excess acid in the colloidal connective tissues, leading to latent tissue acidosis.

25) With over 35 years of research and testing over 500,000 samples of urine, saliva, blood and interstitial fluids for pH and chemistry, I have come to the conclusion that the human body is an acid producing organism by function – yet, it is an alkaline organism by design. Eating animal protein, especially meat and cheese and sugar from any source are deadly acidic choices – unless you interested in becoming sick, tired and fat over time.

Bottom line – the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is a program that focuses on the foundational principal that the body is alkaline by design and yet acidic by function. This make this program the ultimate program for preventing and reversing aging and the onset of sickness and dis-ease. I would say that the pH Miracle Lifestyle and Diet is the diet for a longer healthier life.

Please remember this very important truth, hydrochloric acid in the stomach is not the cause of digestion but the result of digestion. Start alkalizing today and begin improving the quality and quantity of your life today.

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.

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!
