Best way to reverse chronic illness and get more energy

  • Do you find it difficult to lose weight or keep it off?
  • Are you overweight or out of shape?
  • How’s your energy level?

Do you get out of bed each morning energized and feel strong, vibrant, and alert whole day? Or you drag yourself out of bed and suffer from fatigue, irritability, or poor concentration?

How is your overall level of health? Are you free of pains and distressing illnesses?

Or you suffer from a chronic disorder that just doesn’t go away, such as allergies arthritis.

Do you have indigestion, low blood sugar, cardiovascular problems, headaches, depression, or frequent infections?

If you have any of these symptoms, chances are you are undernourished. For many of my clients, undernourishment is very common, even if they think they eat “correctly”. Obesity, for example, is a sign of undernourishment. My overweight clients are literally starving for nutrients to satisfy their hunger and normalize their metabolism. Even if they are eating only the highest quality healthy foods, they very deficient in the vital nutrients their body needs to work properly.

Fortunately, our body always lets us know when we are not feeding it correctly. The symptoms we experience are the signals that our body sends us, telling us that it needs to be supported with energy that matched our metabolism.

If you want to enhance or maintain your health, there is no substitute for eating according to your metabolic type. Regardless of your current physical health, knowing your metabolic type is the first step in start enjoying a life full of vibrant health and fitness, and free of the degenerative illnesses that disturb many people in developed countries.

What’s Your Metabolic Type?

The three metabolic types are Protein Type, Carbo Type, and Mixed Type. Once you identify your metabolic type and the diet that is right for you, you can modify your diet, enjoy abundant energy, and extend your life!

You and your family member might both be Protein Types, which means vegetarian-based diets and carbohydrates will not be the best food for you. But even though you both need to eat protein and restrict carbohydrates, he/she might require heavier proteins and be more reactive to carbohydrates, such as sugars and starches.

Even though you were born with a specific set of dietary requirements dictated by your genetics, your needs can shift for a number of reasons, such as stress, illness, exercise or nutrient deficiencies. Your diet is highly individualized and it is constantly changing. That’s why I energy test foods and fine-turn their diet while we work together.

When we complete their blood tests and determine their metabolic type, we can fine-tune their diet. They know exactly what kinds of foods are compatible with their body chemistry. We determine what foods energize them, make them feel great, and support their health over the longer term. They learn the secrets of combining macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) in the specific proportions that are just right for them. Learning exactly what foods to choose and exactly how to combine them is of fundamental importance for eating according to your metabolic type. The list below gives you a brief synopsis or preview of the three general metabolic types and the diets that correspond to each category.

PROTEIN METABOLIC TYPE

If you are a Protein Type, it means your cells metabolize carbohydrates too quickly and your body relies on glycolysis for energy (fast oxidizer). The parasympathetic branch of your autonomic nervous system is stronger and more dominant than the sympathetic branch. Protein Types require a high protein intake in order to strengthen their sympathetic system and balance their slow metabolism. They need high protein to slow down their rapid cellular oxidation rate.

  • High protein
  • Heavy, fatty,
  • High-purine proteins
  • High fats and oils
  • Low carbohydrates
  • Metabolic Imbalance: fast oxidizer or parasympathetic dominant

CARBO METABOLIC TYPE

If you are a Carbo Type, you need a higher percentage of carbohydrates in your diet in order to strengthen the parasympathetic branch of your nervous system. You need to consume more carbohydrates in your diet in order to speed up your naturally slow cellular oxidation rate and acidify your too-alkaline metabolism.

  • Low protein
  • Light, lean, low-purine proteins
  • Low fats and oils
  • High carbohydrates
  • Metabolic Imbalance: slow oxidizer or sympathetic dominant

MIXED METABOLIC TYPE

If you’re a Mixed Type, you combine the other two types. You need to eat a mixture of foods that will support both sides of your autonomic nervous system – both your sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. Since your cellular oxidation rate is neither fast nor slow, you need to eat a mixture of foods so that you will not create a one-sided effect that speeds up or slows down your cellular oxidation rate.

  • Mixture of high-fat, high-purine proteins and low-fat
  • Low-purine proteins
  • Requires equal ratios of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates
  • Metabolic Imbalance: neither fast nor slow oxidizer neither parasympathetic nor sympathetic dominant

These 3 metabolic types provide a starting point that will enable you to customize your diet and eat in alignment with your body’s nutritional needs.

DO YOU HAVE AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE?

  • Do you suffer from fatigue, joint pain, weight gain, frequent headaches, hair loss, insomnia, or food sensitivities?

Maria had been ignoring these symptoms for years because they seemed minor and not life threatening. She was living life as if she were healthy, ate whatever she wanted, and acted as if she was just like everyone else. As the years passed, she began to feel less energetic and gained weight. She looked older than her real age, suffered from constant joint pain, anxiety, and insomnia. When Maria came to see me, she said that she didn’t recognize herself and wanted to understand what was happening to her.

I ordered blood work and performed adrenal and thyroid energy tests. The results showed that Maria had a chronic autoimmune illness called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.  In addition, she had an overactive adrenal function, which caused her body to produce too much stress hormones – adrenalin and cortisol.

People with the autoimmune disease typically feel very discouraged. For them, undergoing conventional treatments rarely leads to a higher quality of life.

What is Autoimmune Disease?

Autoimmune disease can involve any organ or system in the body: joints, skin, digestive system, hormones, nerves, connective tissues, and muscles. Rheumatoid arthritis affects your joints. With Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the thyroid is attacked. MS (multiple sclerosis) destroys myelin, the protective layer around your nerves.

While it may seem that these conditions are vastly different, the common theme in all of them is that your immune system gets confused and starts attacking your body. The immune system is designed to protect you from foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria. It creates antibodies that are used to identify and destroy pathogens; enabling you to recover from an illness. With autoimmunity, these antibodies target healthy tissue. This leads to inflammation and cell destruction: like an army aiming its own weapons against itself!

Autoimmune illness often affects multiple organs or systems; which makes it extremely difficult to receive proper treatment. Some autoimmune diseases cause chronic symptoms, while others have little or no disease activity or flare ups. Many autoimmune conditions commonly present with nonspecific symptoms like pain and fatigue. Because these symptoms are not easily identified with a specific condition, diagnosis is troublesome. Symptoms can also vary widely from person to person, making an accurate diagnosis problematic.

The AARDA (American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association) estimates that more than 50 million Americans (roughly 1 in 6) suffer from autoimmune diseases; 75 percent of whom are women. Medical science has identified more than 100 autoimmune diseases, with another 40 suspected to have an autoimmune component. Autoimmune disease is one of the most significant healthcare issues facing our world today.

Types of Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases are classified into two groups: organ-specific diseases and non-organ-specific diseases. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (which affects the thyroid gland) and type 1 diabetes (which affects the pancreas) would be examples of organ-specific diseases. Some non-organ-specific diseases would be rheumatoid arthritis (which affects the joints) and lupus (which affects connective tissue). Organs of the endocrine system (thyroid, pancreas, adrenal glands, etc.) are the most commonly affected. The most commonly affected non-organ tissues are connective tissues: such as blood, muscles, and joints. Many autoimmune diseases commonly coexist with others: for example, celiac disease and Hashimoto’s.

Unfortunately, obtaining a proper diagnosis is often very challenging for those of us suffering from autoimmune diseases. According to the AARDA, those with an autoimmune disease spend an average of 4 years seeking diagnosis; with visits to more than 4 physicians in the process. Some go undiagnosed for years, while others get misdiagnosed with other conditions.

The undiagnosed and misdiagnosed rate for celiac disease can be as high as 83 percent; showing how difficult it truly can be to obtain answers. Autoimmune disease symptoms can be nonspecific, mild, and gradually build over time; making it difficult to determine if you need to see your physician. When you do, you are often told everything is fine and further testing that could uncover early warning signs is not ordered.

One of the biggest issues with the conventional treatment of autoimmune disease is that it’s often misdiagnosed. This leads to people being bounced around between primary care physicians and multiple specialists before getting proper testing and treatment. Many of us who suffer from autoimmune symptoms wonder why we should even bother seeking a diagnosis, especially if our symptoms can be improved just by making dietary and lifestyle changes. However, there are benefits to having a clear diagnosis.

THIS QUIZ will help you become clear about your risk of autoimmune illness. Also given are suggestions about the first steps you can make to start improving the quality of your life.

AUTOIMMUNE DESEASE QUIZ

One of the biggest issues with the conventional approach to autoimmune disease is that it’s often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. This leads to patients being bounced around between primary care physicians and specialists before obtaining proper testing and treatment. Many of us who suffer from autoimmune symptoms wonder why we should even bother seeking a diagnosis, especially if our symptoms can be improved just by making dietary and lifestyle changes. However, there are benefits to having a clear diagnosis.

In order to prevent complications from the damage caused by autoimmune disease, early diagnosis is important. A correct diagnosis helps you to connect with the specialists and other medical providers you need, weigh treatment options, and think about how you want to navigate dietary and lifestyle modifications. Unfortunately, obtaining a proper diagnosis is often the most difficult part of the process for those of us suffering from autoimmune disease.

Awareness of the autoimmune diseases related to your current diagnosis can be helpful if signs of new diseases become obvious, as it can make these new diagnoses easier for health-care providers by pointing them toward likely disorders and allowing for earlier identification of multiple autoimmune syndromes.

The following quiz will help you become clear about your risk of autoimmune illness. Also given are suggestions about the first steps you can make to start improving the quality of your life.

YOUR AUTOIMMUNE SCORE

1-30:

Very Low Risk. If some of the symptoms you are experiencing are aggravating, make it a priority to speak with your doctor or holistic practitioner to find out if they could be caused by other conditions. Make lifestyle and diet modifications that help to reduce your risk.

31-60:

Low Risk. This is the silent autoimmunity stage. You may have antibodies present, but you are not experiencing disruptive symptoms. If you are suffering from autoimmune disease, ask your doctor to order these lab tests. Remove gluten and dairy from your diet.

61-100:

Moderate Risk. There is a high chance that some of your symptoms may be caused by an autoimmune reaction. At this stage, lifestyle and diet intervention can significantly improve the quality of your life. Order these lab tests and switch to the Autoimmune Paleo Diet. Order the food sensitivity testing (contact us to order) to find out which foods trigger the autoimmune response.

Over 101:

High Risk. You have an autoimmune disease, or your current symptoms make diagnosis very likely. Form a healthcare providers team (if you don’t already have one) and consider changes immediately to improve the quality of your life. Order these lab tests, begin the Autoimmune Paleo Diet, remove emotional and physical stress, and seek support from your friends and family. Connect with others who have the same condition and share your experience with them. If you live in a big city, consider moving into a cleaner area closer to the ocean or a park. Replace high impact exercise with yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, or walking.

 

 

How to Make Homemade Yogurt

I love making my own homemade yogurt – it contains beneficial bacteria that helps to digest food and promotes healthy functioning of the immune system.

Yogurt that has been sitting on the shelves at the grocery store does not have the fresh, active bacteria that homemade yogurt does. Commercially manufactured yogurt is made from pasteurised milk, it is difficult to digest because it contains sugar, preservatives, and fillers.  It can often cause allergic reaction in many people. Once the commercial yogurt has been refrigerated, the quantity of friendly bacteria decreases and the health benefits decrease. Also, from the weight management perspective, it may contribute to weight gain due to the cold and heavy quality.

If you buy yogurt at the store, choose products that contain live active cultures. If the yogurt has been pasteurized or heated, the beneficial bacteria are dead and will not provide any health benefits.

Homemade yogurt is especially beneficial for individuals on a vegetarian diet. One cup yogurt contains about 13 grams of protein, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, B complex, and folic acid. People taking antibiotics, which can destroy digestive flora, are often recommended to eat yogurt to replace healthy bacteria.

Fresh yogurt is digested in about 1 hour, as compared to the 3 hours it can take to digest milk. People who have issues with digesting milk say that fresh yogurt is much easier to digest and it actually helps their immune system.

Learning how to make yogurt at home is easier than you think. Use the milk from only from the grass-fed animals, goat or sheep milk is best. Raw milk would be my first choice if you can find a local farm in your area.

Follow these steps to make a delicious homemade yogurt:

Equipment: 5- to 8-cup container with lid, thermometer, plastic or glass spoon.

  1. Heat milk in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently with plastic or glass spoon, until it is steaming, barely bubbling and registers 180°F on an instant-read thermometer. Important tip: Do not leave the milk unattended – it can boil over very quickly.
  2. Pour the milk into a clean, heat-safe 5- to 8-cup container. Let it stand, stirring frequently, until cooled to 110°F.
  3. Open 2 capsules of probiotics and add them into the milk (in a small bowl first), then stir the mixture back into the warm milk.
  4. Cover the container and wrap in a clean kitchen towel to help keep it warm. Place in a very warm place. You may use stove with a light turned on.
  5. Let it stand undisturbed until thickened and tangy, at least 8 and up to 12 hours.
  6. Refrigerate yogurt until cold, for about 2 hours. The yogurt will thicken a bit more in the refrigerator.
  7. You may sweeten yogurt with stevia, fruits, or cacao.

Homemade Yogurt can be stored in regenerator for up to 1 week.

Tip: Make sure that temperature is between 100 and 110 F, otherwise it may kill the bacteria and disturbs a fermentation process.

There are a few ways to create a very warm (about 110°F) environment for making yogurt:

  • Method 1: Turn your oven on to 200° for about 5 minutes, then turn it off. Add the towel-wrapped container of yogurt and if you have an oven light, turn it on for added warmth.
  • Method 2: Place a hot water bottle (or other small container) filled with very hot water alongside the towel-wrapped container in a small cooler.
  • Method 3: Wrap a heating pad set to High around the towel-wrapped container.
  • Method 4: Use yogurt maker (Cost: $25 online).

I hope you will try this recipe at home and enjoy its benefits. Post your comments below if you want to share your tips or recommendations.

Why are we getting sicker?

 

Kinesiology muscle energy testing is a standard protocol that I perform for every client. The purpose of this protocol is to determine sensitivity to specific foods, supplements, and drugs. In addition, I often energy test for any reactivity of the immune system to various substances in the environment.

After energy testing, I use GDV devices to measure energy reserve in each organ and system of the body. GDV scan helps to confirms the results of energy testing and allows to paint a complete picture of client’s physical and emotional state.

Not surprisingly, 95% of my clients have problems with thyroid or adrenals. About 80% of them have drug reactivity – when a body rejects a prescription drug, and over 95% are reacting to bread (gluten) and/or dairy.

Triple Warmer is the energy system that governs our fight and flight response. It is responsible for keeping our body safe and protecting it from external invaders, such as viruses and bacteria. Quite often Triple Warmer overreacts to harmless food and substances because they are not recognized by the body as “friendly substances”. This constant state of reactivity creates grounds for developing an autoimmune illness.

I have to say that this situation was not as bad 15 years ago, when I just started my practice. In today’s toxic world thyroid and adrenal disorders have reached epidemic proportions. In order to reverse autoimmune conditions we must understand why our body is attaching itself.

What is Autoimmunity?

When the body attacks itself and causes organ and tissue damage, scientists call this disorder autoimmunity. People can go a lifetime with the earliest symptoms of autoimmunity, which can include weight gain, brain fog, joint pain, gut problems, depression, mood disorders, and fatigue.

Because these symptoms are unnoticed by the conventional medical community, people never receive a diagnosis of a disease. Instead, they are told by doctors, family members and friends that “you are fine, it’s just stress…” or “it’s all in your head”, even though their inner voice may be telling them that something’s wrong.

The doctors who evaluate these people do not have bad intentions, but because “nothing” shows up as a red flag on a blood test, they might have received generic advice, like “lose weight,” “get more rest,” “eat better,” or “reduce your stress.” Or worse, they might walk out of the doctor’s office with a prescription for anti-anxiety medications to help them “calm down”. Eventually they arrive to integrative practitioners like me,  who have to figure out the real causes and get to the bottom of their dysfunction.

It’s no wonder they show up at my office hopeless as they conditions worsen and confused about what could possibly be wrong with their health. After all, their doctors said they are healthy. Can they be wrong?

In this post I’d like to share with you that illness doesn’t occur suddenly.You don’t wake up with Alzheimer’s disease one day  – it’s a decades-long process with many steps of progression over the years. You don’t wake up with diabetes either – it develops slowly over time.

Scientists now know that for autoimmune diseases, including diabetes and Alzheimer’s, the process starts as early as your twenties or thirties, with multiple steps of declining health along the way. In the case of Alzheimer’s, it might begin with brain fog, then forgetfulness, confusion, memory loss, and, eventually, dementia. For diabetes, the scale might begin with food cravings, then blood sugar imbalances (hypoglycemia), next metabolic syndrome with weight gain, then followed by numbness and tingling that come and go, and finally a diagnosis of diabetes with a high risk of heart disease.

The problem with this situation is that a diagnosis of illness happens only after there is significant damage is done to the body. In this case the solution is a lifetime of medications and a constant battle to reverse disease.

While science has been making clear advances in the treatment of many illnesses, wouldn’t you like to know, sooner rather than later, if autoimmunity is causing your symptoms?

What’s in it for you?

If you have occasional headaches, stomach cramps, constipation, bloating, or acne, and if you’re fatigued even though you’re drinking coffee all day, I’m here to tell you that it’s not normal. These irritating symptoms are a message from your body saying “something’s not right” and you need to pay attention before it’s too late. Many of my clients often say: “I wish I knew about this 10 years ago…”.

The good news is that your body is forgiving and you can make changes in your lifestyle that will begin to transform your life and your health.

There are two major reasons why you are feeling forgetful, sick, overweight, or tired – toxicity and constant inflammation. But addressing these symptoms alone will not work. You need to find out what’s causing this inflammation in your body.

What I am seeing while working with my clients is that most dairy products (especially conventional pasteurised milk and yogurt), sugar, and bread (gluten content in wheat, barley and rye) are the most common triggers that fuel the inflammation and lead to autoimmunity. Published research confirms this as well. There are others, but the functional medicine considers those to be “the big three”.

Toxic chemicals and heavy metals found in our environment, such the lead and mercury, are also contributors to the autoimmune illnesses. Reducing inflammation is the primary reason why scientists, researchers, and doctors share so many successful case studies in medical journals, and why you may have heard amazing testimonials about reversing psoriasis, lupus, ADHD, acne, depression, tumors, and rheumatoid arthritis.

In my office I tell my clients to remove all pro-inflammatory foods that cause their body to overreact and create inflammation. Once these foods and toxic medications that contribute to the immune system’s response are removed, their symptoms disappear, their energy returns to normal, their memory improves, and they sleep better. This improvement can be noticed within 2 weeks of removing the pro-inflammatory foods. This dietary alteration is supported with energy work I offer in my office, such as LED Light Therapy, Eden Energy Medicine, and more.

How to Determine Your Food Sensitivity

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, we have finally crossed the line where for the first time in the history of the human race, our children will have a shorter projected life span than their parents. This means “our children are going to get sick earlier, get diagnosed with disease earlier, and die earlier than their parents from completely preventable diseases like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. More kids are diagnosed with diabetes, ADHD, autism, and pediatric juvenile idiopathic arthritis than ever before.”

This is shocking, unfair, and simply unacceptable.

One of the reason we are getting sicker is constant inflammation in our body and toxicity in our environment. GMO, pesticides, processed food, and gluten play a major role in orchestrating inflammation and contributing to autoimmune illnesses.

If you have any food or gluten sensitivity, most likely you have a leaky gut syndrome and your body is attacking its own tissues. It will take years to diagnose, so don’t wait until you have a full-blown autoimmune. Most people do not experience any visible syndromes or might have mild discomfort, such as gas, headache, insomnia, indigestion, brain fog, or sneezing after eating, which they consider “normal”. It’s NOT NORMAL. 

If you have food intolerance symptoms, my recommendation is to remove gluten and dairy from your diet. If this doesn’t help, the next step would be to begin working with a certified Kinesiology or Healing Touch practitioner who is trained in Applied Kinesiology. Many chiropractors are trained in Kinesiology muscle testing, so if you can call the office to inquire.

Actually, it’s not that difficult to learn muscle testing, but it requires training and practicing on people. I teach these techniques in my workshops and use this chart as a guide. I use muscle testing with all my clients to find out which foods create reactivity (and inflammation).

Your Blood Tells All About You

Here is another way to determine early signs of autoimmune disease. You can order a blood test to test for food and gluten reactivity. Although there are many tests to check reactivity to wheat, they are all insufficient to meet the complexity of the wheat grain.

Wheat Sensitivity Testing

Wheat sensitivity is an autoimmune disorder when people respond to wheat ingestion by creating antibodies against components of wheat. Wheat sensitivity can be very difficult to identify. Wheat Zoomer blood test is designed to examine the most complex associations with wheat sensitivity known today. It measures a level of antibodies and identifies any of the following conditions which may be associated with your symptoms:

  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Wheat allergies
  • Vitamin D deficiencies
  • Gluten ataxia (neurological)
  • Dermatitis / eczema (skin)
  • Click here to view the Wheat Zoomer sample report.

A wheat genome comprises of 17 billion base pairs. This is much higher than even the human genome which comprises of 3 billion base pairs. The proteome (a complete set of proteins) coded by the wheat genome is enormous and there is currently no platform that can completely cover the ‘entire wheat proteome’.

Wheat Zoomer is the most comprehensive test covering the Wheat proteome which uses a sophisticated three step testing algorithm. All the key proteins of wheat are arrayed on the Vibrant Wheat Zoomer chip. These proteins include but are not limited to the following:

  • Alpha Gliadins
  • Alpha-Beta Gliadins
  • Gamma Gliadins
  • Omega Gliadins
  • LMW Glutenins
  • HMW Glutenins
  • Wheat Germ Agglutinins
  • Amylase/Protease Inhibitors
  • Farinins
  • Globulins
  • Peroxiredoxin
  • Serpins
  • My favorite test is called a Wheat Sensitivity Zoomer. I like is because it’s extremely detailed and accurate.

Wheat Zoomer uses 3 Step Algorithm

This 3 step process makes Wheat Zoomer extremely reliable and accurate:

STEP ONE:

  • Testing for IgA and IgG antibodies against Deamidated gliadin peptide and tissue transglutaminase.
  • This step enables diagnosis of gluten sensitive enteropathies including celiac disease.
  • If an individual is positive for this test then he/she is considered to have celiac disease or other gluten related enteropathy.
  • Subsequent testing might be done for Endomysial Antibody and/or genetic testing for celiac HLA association.

STEP TWO:

  • Testing for IgG antibodies to native gliadin is performed.
  • These antibodies are most sensitive markers in gluten sensitivity including extra-intestinal manifestations.
  • If an individual is positive for this test then he/she is considered likely to have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

STEP THREE:

  • Testing for IgE antibodies for wheat allergy is performed.
  • If the result is positive then the individual is diagnosed to be allergic to wheat

Wheat Zoomer tests for reactivity to more wheat peptides than any other diagnostic tool available to date. This test is used by the functional medicine practitioners to determine celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.

Dangers of 2016 Flu Vaccine

Are you thinking about getting a flu vaccine this winter season?

Read this article before making your decision. This information might save your life (literally).

Novartis, a pharmaceutical company specializing in producing flu vaccines, has just released a new vaccine, called FLUAD. This vaccine is intended for the 2016-2017 flu season and specifically formulated for people age 65 and over.

Novartis created an innocent and heart touching commercial for their vaccine:  Watch FLUAD 2016 Commercial.

Studies demonstrate that creatively advertised FLUAD vaccine contains a substance responsible for triggering Gulf War Syndrome.

What is Gulf War Syndrome?

Gulf War Syndrome affects military veterans of the Persian Gulf war, who experience illnesses such as fibromyalgia, functional gastrointestinal disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, abnormal function of various organs, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia, functional abdominal pain syndrome, abnormal weight loss, fatigue, cardiovascular disease, muscle and joint pain, headache, menstrual disorders, neurological and psychological problems, skin conditions, respiratory disorders, and sleep disturbances. (Source).

Dangerous Substance in 2016 Flu Vaccine

 FLUAD vaccine contains ingredient called Squalene – a substance that triggers the body’s immune response to an antigen.

Squalene is an adjuvant, which was a portion of cocktail of the anthrax vaccine given to servicemen during the Gulf War. Adjuvants are elements added to vaccines to create a stronger immune response to the vaccine. The anthrax vaccines used an ‘oil-in-water emulsion’ of squalene known as MF59.

As was reported by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), by November 28, 2014 three people died within 48 hours of being vaccinated with MF59 and that number rose to 11 on by November 29, 2014.

In 2012, after testing and identifying possible side effects MF59, Germany, Spain Switzerland, Austria, and France suspended distributions of four flu vaccines produced by Novartis. Italy eventually lifted their ban, and sadly, 13 people died after being vaccinated.

Countless health advisers reported that the US government ignored evidence showing that MF59 in anthrax vaccine activated Gulf war syndrome. Initially the Department of Defense denied squalene’s presence in the vaccines, but after FDA investigation it was reported that anti-squalene antibodies were detected in patients of Gulf War Syndrome.

Ways Squalene Harms Human Body

Adjuvants boost the immune response and trigger the immune system to overreact to the organism being vaccinated against. Experts report that squalene vaccination causes the immune system attack this substance throughout the entire body.

Studies confirm that squalene can generate long-term, concentrated and unremitting immune responses. In a study published in the American Journal of Pathology in 2000, a single injection of squalene caused rheumatoid arthritis in rats. This study concluded, that “endogenous lipid can trigger arthritis in rats could have wide pathogenetic implications in humans.” This explains why so many Gulf war syndrome patients suffer from autoimmune diseases.

Because adjuvants like squalene are used in very small amounts, it allows producing them a larger amount of individual doses, which generate greater profits for their producers.

2016 Flu Vaccine Contains a Mix Of Toxic Ingredients

FLUAD vaccine combines two types of Influenza A and one of Influenza B. It also contains the antibiotic neomycin, toxin formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, and heavy metal barium.

The CDC lists “some adverse events” caused by the FLUAD vaccine, describing them as “redness at the injection site, muscle aches, malaise, mild to moderate pain, and headache”.

However based on research, FLUAD can cause much more serious conditions, such as allergic reactions including anaphylactic shock (a life-threatening disorder), blood and lymphatic system disorders, cellulitis-type reactions, convulsions, and nervous system ailments such as Guillain-Barre syndrome.

It’s apparent that elderly people who have already weakened immune system, will be a direct target of the FLUAD injections sponsored by its producer, Novartis. For them and the CDC, it’s business as usual. But for the aging people (who are our parents and family members), who have no time or energy to investigate this topic, negative side effects of this drug can impact the entire family.

There are many safer remedies that exist in nature can strengthen the immune system without creating harmful side effects and irreversible health conditions.

Here are some remedies that you may want to consider this winter season: Turmeric, Vitamin D, Astragalus, Echinacea, Zink, Vitamin C, Oregano oil, Olive leaf extract, Ginger root, Elderberry extract, and Eucalyptus oil, and Probiotics.

All of them have a long record of working synergistically with human immune system by supporting its protective and fighting properties.

Autoimmune Epidemic

  • Are you searching for the underlying health issues that are causing your symptoms?
  • Not sure of your next steps to deal with your illness?

According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA), over 50 million people in US are struggling with many autoimmunity issues: M.S, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, skin disorders (Psoriasis, Eczema), Hair Loss (Alopecia) fibromyalgia, hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and many others. Unfortunately this condition is not easily diagnosed and may be developing in your body without your awareness.

Autoimmune conditions will not get better if you are are not willing to change your diet, avoid stress, change your lifestyle, and remove infections and toxins. The autoimmune illness can be well managed and you can regain your health and in some cases, even reverse this illness. It starts with awareness, education, and dedication.

If you are ready for a positive change, we are here to guide you on the road of recovery. We use only natural methods, such as dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, detoxification,  supplementation, stress reduction, and yoga. If required, we will also refer you to a lab to perform necessary blood, stool and saliva testing as well as advise you on selecting a functional medicine doctor who can assist you with healing your illness.
