Q: Christine/FL ~ My 73 year old father is taking Sinemet and Cogentin for Parkinson’s disease but he is not getting better and my mother can’t sleep because he wanders out of the house or gets into arguments, she says sometimes with people who aren’t there. It is scary. Luckily we installed high fences and gates that she locks, so he can’t get out of the yard. My mother says he took other medicine at first but has been on these for a couple of years. Now they want him to take Pimavanserin for the “psychosis,” but after talking to his pharmacist I think the wandering and arguing is from the Sinement and Cogentin. She said Pimavanserin should help with that, but it has side-effects, she said. Is there anything natural he can have instead of all these medications? Again, he is getting worse, not better, so why should he continue taking these drugs? The pharmacist said we have to understand Parkinson’s is a disease that doesn’t get better. There is no cure and the best we can expect is to slow down his death with all these drugs. I should tell you, he was an automobile painter at his body shop for 53 years, so he was surrounded with fiberglass, paint and other chemicals his entire adult life. Can he use the cleanse? He won’t eat vegetables and likes the carbs but he also likes beef, pork and poultry.

Thanks for your help.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Parkinson’s patients usually all have a chemical/metal exposure in their lives. The medications deplete natural l-dopa, so that is why they take these medications, but they do tend

All of the drugs prescribed for Parkinson’s patients have serious side-effects, including hallucinations (seeing things that are not there and also hearing things that do not exist), thoughts of suicide, increased neurological instability, gastrointestinal disturbances, and many other harmful effects, as noted below with each of the medications you mention.

Unfortunately, your father has been taking these drugs for awhile, it sounds like, and that his doctors have no other treatment to recommend for him and are expanding on what he has been taking.

A Functional Medicine Doctor may be more helpful. Dr. David Perlmutter spearheaded the use of IV L-glutathione, IV Vitamin C and other IV nutrients for a variety of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s Disease. It is likely that your father’s lifetime occupation caused, or at least contributed, to his neurological disorders. Despite covering the body when working on auto bodies and painting, the metals and chemicals will permeate the body over time and cause damage. It does not appear that Dr. Perlmutter sees patients anymore, so I recommend searching for a Functional Medicine Doctor in your area; L-glutathione IV treatments first used by Dr. David Perlmutter in Naples, FL. See the video from Dr. Perlmutter on YouTube HERE; it is fascinating!

We also encourage you to read the article in the Reference Center NEUROLOGICAL RECOMMENDATIONS about Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.; however, there are many supplements your father cannot use while taking the drugs he is taking and the drug recommended.

Your father is limited as to what supplements he can take with the medications he is taking; however, most people with Parkinson’s Disease, who take the drugs your father is taking, also can use the products in FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, which contains a total of 5 products: 1 bottle Whole Food Multi-Vitamin 60 tablets, 1 bottle Mineral Complex Ultra 250 tablets, 1 Bottle Beta Glucan (100mg), 60 capsules, 1 bottle Vitamin C 1000 Buffered, 90 Tablets, 1 bottle Probiotic Enteric-coat, 60 capsules.

SINEMET (Levodopa and Carbidopa combination)

COGENTIN (Benztropine mesylate)

PIMAVANSERIN (Nuplazide)

IMPORTANT RED BOX WARNING:

Studies have shown that older adults with dementia (a brain disorder that affects the ability to remember, think clearly, communicate, and perform daily activities and may cause changes in mood and personality) who take antipsychotics (medications for mental illness) have an increased risk of death during treatment. Pimavanserin is not approved for the treatment of people with dementia-related psychosis that are not related to the hallucinations and delusions from Parkinson’s disease psychosis.

Q: Miriam/FL I am 64, took Metformin, Lipitor and Norvasc so I decided to do that apple juice fast you talk about and it was great, so I started doing your diet for fungus too. That was over a year ago. I lost 40 lbs and fixed my blood sugar and liver enzyme numbers, so got off Metformin and Norvasc. BUT my doctor thinks I should continue Lipitor to be safe. What do you think? Here are my numbers taking the Lipitor: total cholesterol is 189mg, LDL cholesterol is 96mg, HDL cholesterol is 74mg, and Triglyceride is 144.  

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Such “preventative measures” damage your body! Why continue lowering your blood cholesterol to dangerous proportions; no benefit for anyone over 50-something, and especially among women. This decision is YOURS and nobody else’s.

Need to take CoQ10 and Vitamin K2, regardless of whether or not you take the Lipitor; we recommend FIGTreeVitamins.com 100% pure, soy-free COQ10 200MG per softgel (1 upon rising) daily.

FIGTreeVitamins.com BONE SUPPORT Tablets (3 upon rising and 3 at bedtime, EMPTY STOMACH) for bone density concerns. OR FIGTreeVitamins.com MULTIMINERAL COMPLEX Ultra Tablets (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime daily).

For osteopenia or osteoporosis, consider FIGTreeVitamins.com BONE- BUILDER Package.

Triglycerides are a little high but that is usually consumption of too many simple carbs.

Q: Cesar/CA age 32. I live in the L.A. Basin and there has been a lot of smog, especially since the fires. What can I take for general health and for my eyes? On the hazy days they burn. My mother said to write.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Genteel tears to wash out debris from eyes with GENTEAL TEARS; get the individual vials.

For general health support, consider the FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, and for your eyes, the FIGTreeVitamins.com VISION CARE Package ( which is a THREE MONTH supply). Also, drink water to flush all those airborne toxins from your body.

Systemically cleanse the body with FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package, featuring Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) Tablets.

You did not say if you are having any trouble breathing or if your lungs are negatively affected by the smog; if so, we suggest FIGTreeVitamins.com 100% pure, soy-free COQ10 200MG per softgel (1 upon rising daily; may repeat midday). Note from FIGTree LIVE: Most brands of CoQ10 are either powdered capsules, which are not absorbed well, or in softgels and liquids cut with soybean oil, which prevents the proper absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and amino acids, as well as CoQ10. FIGTreeVitamins CoQ10 was created for maximum absorption to perform at the cellular level, providing energy to your body’s cells.

Common questions is from those who have very dry eyes. What can they use? Genteal individual eye drops. GENTEAL TEARS

Q: Karla M./GA I love your show and glad I found it. I have a tiny bit of bladder leakage but no other problems. We think it is from taking a lot of antibiotics but probiotics hasn’t fixed it. Is there something, other than Vesicare or Myrbetrique?

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Bladder leakage often occurs in women as we become older, caused by child birth. First recommendation is kagle exercises. Would avoid those medications because of their side-effects, because they dehydrate and slow-down both the urinary and intestinal tract – use pads.

Planetary Formulas Uva Ursi/Diurite

Parsley Tea

Often, in women, urinary incontinence is from a lack of amino acids; try FIGTreeVitamins.com raw/undenatured, organic unflavored WHEY PROTEIN Powder for a month or so to see if that works!

Q: Emily/FL I took your advice and used a functional medicine doctor to fix the fungus in my body and feel great. The complaint I have is that they are too expensive. The things in the Antifungal Rotation package are the same as the doctor gave mostly but costs less than half what I spent. Can I do the Antifungal Rotation package taking half of the suggested amounts to prevent fungus in the future? To be clear, I don’t have fungus. I just want to do something to prevent it again.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ If you have changed your diet and lifestyle according to your Functional Medicine doctor, and continue to eat and drink properly.

No, you want antifungals to work when you need them. If you have no fungal overgrowth, there is nothing like that to fix.

*********

Q: John/Pensacola: Is it ok for body builders to use Dr. Helen Pensanti’s products? I don’t use anabolics and only use natural foods and products but as I am getting older (now 43), I could use some help with strength and stamina. How does the whey protein at figtree vitamins compare to what I get at my gym?

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Get your testosterone levels checked.

Dr. Helen’s TESTOSTERONE CREAM for men; apply 1/2 teaspoon to inner thighs, inner arms or scrotum – rotate application site daily. BE SURE TO USE WITH Dr. Helen’s Blue label Bio-Identical Phyto PROGESTERONE and TESTRON  oral for libido and to shrink the prostate.

To order from Dr. Helen’s office, must call & leave message at 800-301-1982 or email your order to hp@askdrhelen.com (include your telephone number) and be sure to mention you are a FIGTree LIVE member to get 20% off – they will call you back for credit card information and to confirm your order.

FIGTreeVitamins.com WHEY PROTEIN Powder is raw/undentured, unflavored and unsweetened, so it does not taste like the average protein powder you get at body building centers and gyms. Each canister contains 32 servings, yielding 19g protein, a full day’s serving of muscle and brain-building amino acids, and less than 1g naturally occurring carbohydrates in each serving! It is derived from organically raised, grassfed cows; non-GMO, no hormones.

Q: Marcy/FL I just turned 64, love the digestion package but now that I changed my diet (antifungal food choices list) and never eat after 5PM anymore, I never have reflux, indigestion or gas anymore. I don’t think I need the Reflux-Away and have some still, but I don’t want it to come back either. Which products do I really need at this point? Thank you! Love the show!!

A: Dr. Lorna ~ If you are following the Antifungal Food Choices List, you may have resolved the acid reflux, GERD, fungal overgrowth, etc., so just keep up the good work! Can now increase good carbs (vegetables, non-processed starches, such as rice or potatoes, increase good fats, etc.). If anything starts to come back, cut out what you know you should. Some people can discontinue the various diets we recommend, but it is not going to hurt to continue with diets that work for you.

Most patients with SIBO and other gastrointestinal troubles consume food within 4-5 hours of bedtime. During bedtime is when your intestinal motor complex works to clear your bowels in the morning.

You may not need anything anymore; however, at a point most people find the FIGTreeVitamins.com DIGESTIVE ENZYMES Ultra Veggie (1-2 with each meal or snack) for high-potency digestion of food. Aids in breaking down histamine (from carbs and processed meats), fats, proteins and starches

AND

FIGTreeVitamins.com PROBIOTIC ENTERIC Capsules important for proper digestion.

That said, if you were to consume raw non-starchy veggies with every meal, you probably would not need the DIGESTIVE ENZYMES either. Both Dr. Jon and I take 1 capsule of the FIGTreeVitamins.com PROBIOTIC ENTERIC, 2-3 times per week.

Tex/LA texted about the Mediterranean diet and his blood sugar, Metformin, Lipitor and a study Dr. Lorna talked about.

Dr. Lorna ~ Studies skew various numbers, based upon results about benefits of statins, measuring only reduction in heart attack, stroke or CVD, but they never talk about all-mortality diseases and disorders. Discussed the large study and results of all-cause mortality (all reasons you could die, rather than just heart attack, stroke or CVD).

WANT TO STOP EATING JUNK FOOD? NEW RESEARCH SAYS YOU SHOULD GET MORE SLEEP

Dec 21, 2018

GET MORE SLEEP

If you can’t figure out why you’re so desperately craving junk food late at night, this new research says that it might be because you’re not getting enough sleep. Based on studies from Cologne University in Germany, tiredness boosts both production of brain cells and hunger hormones that are linked to comfort eating and hunger respectively. Additionally, researchers say that participants who went an entire night with no sleep were willing to fork out more cash for snacks like chocolates and cookies compared to food items. On the other hand, they would not spend the same excessive amounts of money after getting a proper night’s rest. It explains why we are more likely to reach for the cookie tin than a piece of fruit late at night. Britain is among the most overweight and sleep-deprived nations in the world – and evidence shows that overweight and sleep-deprived are linked.

DISCUSSION:

We have become a society that eats constantly, including within an hour or two of bedtime. AND, it is usually ice cream, cake, pie or cookies – a sugar rush when you are trying to sleep keeps your brain cranking and sets up with lots of bathroom breaks too!

When your digestive tract has to overwork itself to breakdown and digest foods, the body and its organs simply do not get the rest it needs. It takes 3-4 hours to fully digest carbohydrates, such as vegetables and starchy foods, such as those made with potatoes, corn or flour. It takes 6-8 hours to fully digest proteins, such as meats, poultry and cheese.

We recommend consuming NO FOOD at all within 4 hours of bedtime (preferably FIVE), so your last meal/snack of the day should be relatively light, such as a salad with some bread or baked potato (you can pour some hot beef broth over the potato for extra flavor without adding heavy fats).

So, if you go to bed at 10PM, your last meal or snack of the day should END not later than 6PM. You can check out this article in our Reference Center: FOOD COMBINING: WHAT IS IT AND IS IT WORTH A TRY?

If you need some help, most people can also use FIGTreeVitamins.com SLEEPY TIME Package, which can help get a full 7-8 hours of restful sleep; if you do tend toward indigestion at night, with acid reflux during the night, you may need a series of enzymes and other nutrients to help you digest foods properly and end acid reflux, using FIGTreeVitamins’ DIGESTION PACKAGE, which is intended to aid with proper digestions of fats, proteins and carbohydrates, as well as to provide nutrients to help resolve indigestion, acid reflux (GERD), belching and other gastrointestinal disturbances, while strengthening the gastrointestinal tract.

BACK PAIN MAY SOON BE A THING OF THE PAST AFTER SCIENTISTS SUCCESSFULLY IMPLANT LAB-GROWN SPINAL DISCS

DISC IMPLANTS

This exciting new study says that you may soon be cured of that awful ache in your back. According to the study from Penn Medicine, scientists believe we will soon be able to grow new spinal discs from a patient’s own cells as a means of replacing the deteriorated ones that cause back and neck pain. For the first time ever, spinal discs that were grown from stem cells were successfully implanted and provided long-term function in the largest animal model ever evaluated for bioengineered disc replacement. The soft tissues in the spinal column, the intervertebral discs, are essential for the motions of daily life, such as turning your head to tying your shoes. At any given time, however, about half the adult population in the United States is suffering from back or neck pain, for which treatment and care place a significant economic burden on society—an estimated $195 billion a year. Tissue engineering holds great promise. It involves combining the patients’ or animals’ own stems cells with biomaterial scaffolds in the lab to generate a composite structure that is then implanted into the spine to act as a replacement disc. For the last 15 years, the Penn research team has been developing a tissue engineered replacement disc, moving from in-vitro basic science endeavors to small animal models to larger animal models with an eye towards human trials – “optimistically” in the near future.

MORE PHYSICIANS, NURSES TAKE SUPPLEMENTS THAN RECOMMEND THEM

December 24, 2018

Nurses and physicians who responded to a Medscape poll on thoughts surrounding vitamins and mineral supplements were more likely to take the supplements than recommend them. The poll questions were posted August 22 and 165 nurses and 950 physicians responded. When asked whether they recommend vitamins and/or mineral supplements to patients, 24% of physicians and 31% of nurses said they always or frequently do.

Answering how often they recommend other dietary supplements, 15% of physicians and 19% of nurses said they always or frequently do. But when asked how often they take dietary supplements (vitamins, minerals, or other supplements) the numbers were higher, and the disparity between physicians and nurses was marked: 71% of nurses said they regularly take them compared with 31% of physicians.  Among both groups, those who were regular users of supplements more often recommended them to their patients (56% for physicians, 39% for nurses) than did those who occasionally or never use them (11%).

A family medicine physician commented on that story, saying, “I have been taking 15 supplement pills about 5x week for 40 years. I take ZERO pharm drugs. Normal blood pressure, healthy cholesterol, lipid and liver panels and no ED.  Better to take my 15 pills than to take the 15 drugs most of my patients take.” Family medicine physicians were the most likely to take dietary supplements regularly or occasionally (74%) and internists were the least likely at 53%.

DISCUSSION: For going on two decades now, doctors, nurses and other healthcare practitioners have been successfully using the same products that are in the FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, because it contain FIVE BOTTLES of products specifically coordinated to enhance proper immune system function, reintroduce lost nutrients (let’s face it; doctors and nurses are continuously busy and rarely eat as well as they know they should) AND the Basic Wellness Pkg enhances more energy to get you through your day!

IS CHEMOTHERAPY ON THE WAY OUT?

Written on December 22, 2018 HealthLine.com

New, less toxic cancer treatments are emerging, but don’t expect chemo to disappear anytime soon. Immunotherapy is one type of new cancer treatment that could someday make chemotherapy a thing of the past. When Mary Olsen received a diagnosis of chronic leukemia, she wanted to try a new, targeted cancer therapy that was showing great promise in clinical trials. But when it came time to get treatment, Olsen, 68, a retired director for early child care education from Indiana, says chemotherapy was her only option. “I was scheduled for one treatment a month for six months,” she said.

“Unfortunately, I did not have a successful experience with chemo.” After two cycles, Olsen developed sepsis, a life-threatening illness caused by your body’s response to an infection. While recovering in the hospital, she says her oncologist came to her room and told her, “No more chemo.” That was just what she wanted to hear.

Olsen had now qualified for a new drug called Imbruvica. It targets cancer but, unlike chemo, doesn’t generally destroy healthy cells. “I was anxious, and I did have and still do have some side effects,” she said. “Fortunately, in the scope of things, they are minor and manageable. They don’t interfere with my daily life, and I am grateful for the benefits of Imbruvica.” Olsen isn’t alone. She’s one of a growing number of cancer patients who are turning away from chemotherapy and toward a new generation of cancer medicines.

Is chemotherapy on the way out?

Most oncologists, scientists, and cancer industry observers interviewed for this story agreed that while it won’t happen anytime soon, the writing is now on the wall. “Chemotherapy’s days are numbered,” But this won’t happen overnight. There are cancers for which chemotherapy is effective. Unlike standard chemo, Immunotherapy is treatment that potentially presents few if any adverse side effects. And this is what scientists, and patients, are moving toward on.

DISCUSSION: While undergoing chemo or radiation therapies, please enhance proper immune system function and preserve as many healthy cells as possible using FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, and FIGTreeVitamins.com raw/undenatured, organic unflavored WHEY PROTEIN Powder, then, once you complete the chemo or radiation therapy, use FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package to systemically cleanse your entire body, systemically, of chemicals and also aid with healing after the damages of both chemo and radiation therapies. Studies now prove that when people do not systemically cleanse chemicals from their organs and tissues after chemotherapy, they are more likely to have cancer again, typically somewhere else in the body (liver and colon are most common) within 5 years of the first cancer battle.

MOST PEOPLE LIE TO THEIR DOCTOR: HERE’S WHY  

December, 2018 HEALTHLINE NEWS LIE

Up to 80 percent of patients aren’t truthful with their healthcare provider. When a physician asks health-related questions, they usually expect the wholehearted truth. After all, honesty is supposed to be the best policy. However, if you’ve stretched the truth to your doctor, you may not be alone. A new study shows that between 60 and 80 percent of patients say that they haven’t told their doctors the truth or have withheld information from them. This study was published in the JAMA Network Open journal by researchers at University of Utah Health and Middlesex Community College, Connecticut, in conjunction with authors from the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and the University of Iowa. They found that the most common reason for withholding information is patients not wanting to feel judged or lectured.

This study shows that between 60 and 80 percent of patients aren’t forthcoming or even lie to their physicians. Misrepresentation most commonly occurred when they disagreed with their physician’s recommendations or misunderstood their instructions. Patients reasoned that they didn’t want to feel judged or be lectured. More than half felt embarrassed about their health choices.

DISCUSSION: People lie, or omit information, all the time, even when answering our lengthy questionnaire, but whether you are seeking all natural health advice or using modern-day allopathic medicine, no doctor or nurse can give you the best help possible without knowing everything about your health history, diet, exercise regimens and so on. Healthcare practitioners very often do not do what they recommend, as they are busy, stressed, do not eat properly and many are dependent upon prescription drugs, as well, but patients only harm themselves when they lie or leave out information, which is frustrating for the healthcare practitioner who is investing a lot of time and effort into making a person well. If you believe your health practitioner is judging you, get a different health practitioner! NOBODY on this planet has a right to judge you for what you eat, drink, do or do not do….we are all here to help one another and lift up one another.

EXPOSURE TO CANNABIS ALTERS THE GENETIC PROFILE OF SPERM

December 19, 2018

Source: Duke University Medical Center

Here’s a summary:

New research suggests men in their child-bearing years should consider how THC could impact their sperm and possibly the children they conceive during periods when they’ve been using the drug. Much like previous research that has shown tobacco smoke, pesticides, flame retardants and even obesity can alter sperm, the new research shows THC also affects epi-genetics, triggering structural and regulatory changes in the DNA of users’ sperm.

Whether genetic changes can be reversed or are passed on to children is still unknown

DOCTORS LOVE GOLF: FACT OR FICTION?

Published Tuesday 11 December 2018

By the BMJ

A long-lived stereotype about doctors is that they are avid golf players. In a new study, featured in the Christmas issue of The BMJ, specialists from the Harvard Medical School tackle this common belief head-on. Every year in the holiday season, the prestigious medical journal The BMJ publishes a special issue that takes the road less traveled by research, answering some of the questions that readers perhaps did not know they even had. Over the years, respected specialists from far and wide have looked at topics as diverse as what side effects sword-swallowing might bring about, what kind of chocolates people prefer, and whether skipping your “beauty sleep” can actually alter your appearance.

This year, a group of researchers from the Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, has decided to find out whether the stereotype that doctors love to spend their leisure time on the golf course is actually true. In their study, which appears in the 2018 special Christmas edition of The BMJ, the study team turned to two databases to figure out if physicians in the United States are as passionate about the best club to get a ball out of a bunker as the public believed.

Which doctors are likely to be golfers?

Well they analyzed data from Doximity, the database of medical doctors in the U.S., and Golf Handicap and Information Network, the database that amateur golfers use to record their playing scores.

They found that, of the 1,029,088 doctors who appeared on Doximity, 41,692 (4.1 percent) were also registered on the Golf Handicap and Information Network. This suggests that at least 4.1 percent of all U.S. physicians play golf in their spare time. But the team did not stop there. They wanted to know which medical specialties generated the most golfers and how likely physicians are to play golf, considering their age and biological sex. Cross-referential analysis revealed that older male doctors, aged between 61 and 70, were the most likely to be golfers, while female doctors ages 31–35 were the least likely to engage in the sport (considering it dumb that you hit a ball, they you have to go chase it yourself).

In fact, only 1.3 percent of all female doctors played golf, accounting for only 10.5 percent of all doctors who participated in the pastime. More specifically, orthopedic surgeons, urologists, and plastic surgeons seemed to have a weakness for golf, and they also tended to have lower handicaps, meaning that they were more skilled at the sport, and they scored better. The most skilled golfers among the specialists were thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons, who had approximately 15 percent lower handicaps, compared with endocrinologists, dermatologists, and oncologists.

Now, we have answered ALL of those burning questions for you!

CALLERS

CALLER: Diane/AL Submitted her test results for Dr. Walker to review and comment. Stage 3 Kidney Disease. Positive ANA 38. If she takes an immune booster, will it make the autoimmune disorder worse.

MEDICATIONS TAKEN: Thyroid

DISCUSSION:  Diagnostics done in October through a Functional Medicine Doctor; notes are from the doctor. He is making good recommendations and she should follow them, which she confirmed that she is following. Current testing is similar to prior testing. Stool testing GI effects: Aware you have renal problems and testing corroborates that still. Blood glucose better, but needs to control her carbohydrate intake, but her functional medicine doctor corroborated that. They have improved. Still showing inflammation. Has been on the Low FODMAPs diet but not sure anything has helped much. If she has not found relief on that particular diet, she may stop following it – it was recommended on to determine whether or not it could help with SIBO. Stool shows 3 toxic flora present, classically attributed to UTIs, kidney issues, sepsis, diarrhea, etc. Believes that, since they are present in her stool that are likely causing her problems. They must be addressed, probably through antibiotics through her doctor (will need to be taking probiotics too) and labs show she also has Candida overgrowth. Eat low protein but do not increase carbohydrates, other than through non-starchy vegetables (not much fruit!). Labs also show her immune system is fighting off infection but she must address those 3 pathogens. Consumes blueberries but no other fruits.

Show the pathogen results (3 microbial toxins) to her functional medicine doctor and follow his instructions. They can provide natural antibiotics. Be sure to take a probiotic if taking a prescription antibiotic. “Doctor” refers to functional medicine doctor. Also use natural antifungals, such as covered by our ANTIFUNGAL ROTATION Regimen using FIGTreeVitamins.com ANTIFUNGAL PACKAGE, and for inflammation, consider the FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package, featuring Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) Tablets.

CALLER: Art-Santa’s Elf/North Pole ~ Mrs. Clause just released from the hospital a week ago with pneumonia. Is smoking less now.

MEDICATIONS TAKEN:  Oxygen sat 70%, was put on IV steroids and antibiotic. Streptococcal Pneumonia bacterial. Was taking Arythromycin, Cefaclor and Albuterol, as well as oxygen.

DISCUSSION:  Energy levels up. Sent her home with arythromicin and Cefaclor and albuterol but stopped those last week. Probiotic to offset the antibiotic in the IV. Sats are up but she is on 2 ltr day oxygen. Saw doctor Thursday but not sure what results were. Swelling in her legs is down and circulation is better. No more drugs since last Wednesday, Dec. 19th and doing well. Should not be smoking in the same room. Her O2 sats are not going to improve while smoking. Get nicotine gum – no longer need a prescription. The inhalation of chemicals in the smoke is what is destroying her lungs, so she should try uninhaled measures. Dr. John talked about nicotine inhaler (Nicotrol), which used to be RX only, but now OTC. The products in the Allergy & Respiratory Pkg can help prevent colds from becoming bronchial congestion, progressing to pneumonia.

Q: Bill/AL I have been taking some statin or another for 20 years, which apparently explains my man boobs, as y’all put it. Now what? Will they go away if I stop taking these drugs? I don’t take anything else. I took Toprol for a week and it slowed my heart rate down so hard I couldn’t continue it. What else is there for cholesterol and what is the right total number it should be?

A: DR. JOHN discuss the history of statin drugs – topic of the day next Thursday!

Dr. Lorna ~ The man-boobs will not go away just stopping statins. Question – how old? What were the cholesterol numbers before he starting using statin drugs? Use of statins causes a higher incidence of all-cause mortality. Normals for cholesterol used to be 240, then 230, then below 200. Normals for LDL were also gradually lowered. They keep lowering the numbers, which is dangerous. Study of two groups of men, both at high risk for cardiovascular disease, both with high cholesterol. One group took statins and ate as normal. One group did not take statins but adopted the Mediterranean Diet. The group on the Mediterranean Diet fared better with health but neither group really changed their cholesterol levels, which shows that statins do not make much impact.

Vicki ~ If all you need to do is make your doctor happy by artificially lowering your cholesterol levels using the natural alternative to statin drugs, consider using, instead, Nature’s Plus Herbal Actives RED YEAST RICE Extended Release 600mg tablets

Understand that you will STILL NEED TO TAKE COQ10 (we recommend FIGTreeVitamins.com 100% pure, soy-free COQ10 200MG per softgel (1 upon rising; may repeat midday). Note from FIGTree LIVE: Most brands of CoQ10 are either powdered capsules, which are not absorbed well, or in softgels and liquids cut with soybean oil, which prevents the proper absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and amino acids, as well as CoQ10. FIGTreeVitamins CoQ10 was created for maximum absorption to perform at the cellular level, providing energy to your body’s cells.

You would begin using the RYR the day after you finish your last statin pill and INSTEAD OF TAKING a statin pill.

Also, please understand that when you stop taking either of these products, your cholesterol levels will increase again, so they have not actually corrected anything. If you have high cholesterol levels because you have atherosclerosis (plaque build-up that is partially blocking veins and arteries), neither the statin nor the RYR is going to correct that! You would need to use something like FIGTreeVitamins.com ULTRA PROTEO-ZIMES  Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) for systemically dissolving and cleansing the veins and arteries of all that build-up (5-10 upon rising and 5-10 at bedtime EMPTY STOMACH for 3-6 months, typically).

SHERRY ROGERS, MD ~ THE CHOLESTEROL HOAX

BE SURE TO USE COUPON CODE p104p IN THE COUPON CODE BOX TO SAVE 10%!

Dr. Rogers writes that cholesterol is not the biggest cause of heart disease nor is it predictive of heart disease…and that over half of those who die of a heart attack never had high cholesterol. But they did have other warnings that could have saved their lives, had they been checked. She likens cholesterol to a smoke detector or messenger alerting you to a problem.

She points out that statin drug use leads to:

Alzheimer’s

Impotence

Tooth loss

Depression

Sudden heart attack

Fibromyalgia

Chronic fatigue

Polyneuropathy

Tendon ruptures

Insulin resistance

Amnesia

Suicide

Heart failure and cancers

Most likely because statins cause nutritional deficiencies, such as:

Vitamin E

Folic acid

Selenium

CoQ10

ORGANIC ALMOND BUTTER RECALLED DUE TO LISTERIA CONTAMINATION

For Immediate Release – FDA.Gov

December 17, 2018

Inspired Organics, LLC has issued a voluntary recall of Organic Almond Butter due to potential contamination of Listeria. Listeria is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The product was distributed exclusively by Lipari Foods. in Warren, Michigan to food service and retail stores throughout Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin

Lipari Foods began shipping the product on October 31, 2018. Consumers who have purchased these recalled products should not consume them. Consumers should discard the products or return them to the point of purchase. Consumers with questions should call Customer Service at 800-729-3354, 8:15 am – 4:30 pm, EST, Monday through Friday.

DISCUSSION: About to discuss more about why this is happening below.

GET YOUR MENTAL HEALTH CARE AT WALMART OR ON SKYPE

Nancy A. Melville – Medscape

Mental health care in the United States is going mainstream with the opening of the first mental health clinic housed in a retail setting — a Texas Walmart.

The clinic in Texas is staffed with one licensed clinical social worker and is designed to provide treatment to patients with anxiety, depression, grief, relationship problems, and other stresses, the company notes.

Patients with more serious mental illness or who require prescription medication will be referred to other professionals within the Beacon Health system. Patients are able to make appointments in person or online, and services can even be provided through Skype.

The clinic will have a sliding fee schedule for patients without health insurance, and the company is reportedly working to receive approval for Medicaid reimbursement in Texas. Initial assessments cost $140 at the clinic, and individual sessions cost $110.

The company points out that more than 10.1 million Texans reside in areas considered to have shortages of mental health professionals. It is estimated that only 35% of the state’s mental health care needs are currently me.

DISCUSSION: I do not believe Skype is secure, so I would not use it to get mental health counseling; however, if they can come up with a secure line to video chat, this could be a great idea for a lot of people who might otherwise no drive so many miles to get help.

HOSPITALS RIDDLED WITH TOXIC STETHOSCOPES THAT ARE RARE CLEANED

Stethoscopes used in an intensive care unit (ICU) are loaded with bacteria, including those that may be associated with hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), new data show. Moreover, standard cleaning methods did not eliminate the problems.

“Practitioner stethoscopes are contaminated by a plethora of bacteria, including organisms that may be associated with nosocomial infections. Cleaning reduces contamination but does not bring the bacterial biomass down to the level of clean stethoscopes nor does it significantly change the overall community composition. Thus, stethoscopes are a potential vector of HAI transfer,” the researchers write.

DISCUSSION: Sadly, this also applies to those curtains they wrap around your bed area so they can speak privately – they are infested with the airborne bacteria, fungus and other microbes, and they are rarely washed. Somehow, we never think of that, but it is a good idea to avoid hospitals to the extent possible. This is one of the many reasons surgeries are now performed in the growing population of surgicenters around the nation, so that there is little likelihood of exposure to sick people.

At the very least, please enhance your proper immune system function with FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, wash your hands regularly, shower and wash your clothes thoroughly when you arrive home.

TENNESSEE U.S. REP.-ELECT MARK GREEN ALLEGES VACCINES MAY CAUSE AUTISM, QUESTIONS CDC DATA

USA Today – 12/12/2018

A soon-to-be congressman from Tennessee told constituents Tuesday he believed vaccines may be causing autism, questioning data from the Centers for Disease Control and other institutions disproving such a theory.

Not only did Republican Mark Green, a Congressman-elect from Clarksville who is also a medical doctor, express hesitation about the CDC’s stance on vaccines, he also said he believed the federal health agency has “fraudulently managed” the data.

“Let me say this about autism,” Green said. “I have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC’s desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines.

“As a physician, I can make that argument and I can look at it academically and make the argument against the CDC, if they really want to engage me on it,” Green said.

DISCUSSION: BRAVO! Let’s hope he continues to advocate for We The People and force government agencies to do their jobs working for US and not lobbyists!

TONS OF SOUTH FLORIDA SEWAGE FINDS ITS WAY INTO ST. JOHNS RIVER TO ‘DEVASTATING EFFECT’

Posted by Erin Elizabeth | Dec 20, 2018

SEWAGE IN FLORIDA WATER

In the last decade, almost 90,000 tons of sewage sludge (the byproduct of wastewater treatment facilities – most of us have heard about a product called Milorganite, is manufactured by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District.) anyway, has been brought up from South Florida and dumped into the St. Johns River watershed. (I’m not sure why more people are totally outraged but they aren’t.) And according to conservationists, we should have been doing more about it than we did; it’s having a devastating effect on the ecosystem.

But why on earth are they allowed to dump in the first place?

Well, in 2007 the Florida legislature gave the waters of South Florida special protections because the water in the lake had been seriously degraded due to the nutrient pollution. (And they thought dumping it into the St. Johns River watershed would be a good idea?)

This new practice, according to Lisa Rinaman, the St. Johns Riverkeeper, was “pitched as an opportunity to provide free fertilizer. ‘The idea is to provide free fertilizer to farmers, but what we’re seeing is it’s a cheap disposal opportunity for wastewater management and the volumes are just overwhelming the soil and, in effect, the waterways.’”

However, now, since “Phosphorus is one of the nutrients that fuels toxic algae” they’re seeing outbreaks in areas where they’ve never seen it before in the river. Not a great idea after all. The St. Johns River, which is more than 310 miles long and begins in Indian River County just west of Vero Beach, only drops in elevation by about 27 feet over the 310 mile journey, and most of that drop is in the first 100 miles,” right where the sludge is being dumped.

Lisa Rinaman says:

“What happens, when you dump it in the headwaters, it all flows this direction. And then there’s more pollution added on to it due to septic tanks in areas, agricultural runoff, urban fertilizers… So it’s just adding fuel at the very beginning of this snowball effect of nutrient pollution that begins now in the headwaters and makes its way to the St. Johns here in Jacksonville.

“In response to public outcry, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection formed a Biosolids Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to look into the issue. ‘The state of Florida is growing [in population] and right now we don’t have a sustainable management plan for our waste,’ Rinaman said. ‘This technical committee is looking at ‘what do we need to do differently? Are there new technologies out there? And how can we protect our waterways equally across the state?’”

DISCUSSION:

“EPA Allows Companies to Pollute Your Food Supplies and Water Aquifers With Over 80,000 Chemical Toxins…And You Are Funding It To.” It has a link to a brand new, 1 hour film, called BIOSLUDGED

I encourage everyone to see the free documentary; Floridians who are experiencing toxic overloads of metals, chemicals, microbes, prescription drug residues (of drugs they do not take, but consume through their water sources) are encouraged to be tested.

ADDENDUM: On Christmas Day, I received an email requesting suggestions for testing that could be performed to determine whether or not you have heavy metal or chemical toxicity in your body; here are some recommendations (AND MERRY CHRISTMAS! ~ Vicki):

CHEMICAL TOXINS ~ GPL-TOX

METAL TOXINS ~ HAIR GPL

(Heavy Metal Toxins also available in a urine test, more expensive)

Regardless of how healthy they eat, some Floridians are experiencing sickliness, have been diagnosed with various diseases, including cancer, lung, liver and kidney diseases, and various neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis and many others.

First, change your diet and cleanse. We recommend following our RAW CLEANSE Diet for 1-2 weeks, followed by our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST diet. 

Systemically cleanse your body of metals and chemicals using FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package, featuring Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) Tablets.

The Package contains contains what you need to bind to, and expel, toxins from every part of your body, including your organs, tissues and blood. You might also consider taking FIGTree Vitamins PROBIOTIC ENTERIC, 35 Billion CFU (1-2 at bedtime EMPTY STOMACH), is also a benefit when cleansing and rebuilding the body.

NOTE: Those taking certain blood pressure, blood thinning or lubricating, steroidal or pain-killing medications may not be able to use this package! Be sure to provide a complete list of medications taken and discuss here and with your healthcare professional.

SOY PRISON LAWSUIT

Weston A Price Foundation [westonaprice.org]

19Dec18

While the wheels of justice move slowly, we are slowing making progress in our efforts to reduce the consumption of soy, even to remove it from the market completely. We have just learned that the state of Illinois will no longer be serving soy foods to its prisoners—this is a huge victory coming after many years of patient work.

This coming year, our petition to remove the heart health claim from foods containing soy protein will finally get its day in court. The judge in the case did not dismiss motion, as was requested by the FDA, but has scheduled a hearing for March 5, 2019 at 10 AM. We will keep you posted and hope that many of you will join us in the courtroom to hear the proceedings.

 Meanwhile, we are winning this fight in the court of public opinion. Ten years ago, the Natural Products Expo was dominated by soy products—soy milk, soy bars, soy supplements. The most recent Expo did not have a single soy product on exhibit, but many products listed as “soy-free.” The big displays of soy milk and end-of aisle shelves of soy bars have disappeared from grocery stores and health food stores. Thanks to our Soy Alert! campaign, more and more consumers have learned about the toxicity of soy.

SUBJECT OF THE DAY

TOPIC OF THE DAY: CHOLESTEROL

Higher cholesterol in the elderly (55 – 60+) is healthier. If you keep lowering cholesterol levels, there is increased brain dysfunction, hormonal balance, muscles and certain forms of cancer. Recent study, that combined 30 studies, in England indicates that lower LDL cholesterol, the greater the increase in all cause mortality. This suggests that, if you take cholesterol drugs, you will die earlier. The CDC is recommending all 9-11 y/o be tested for cholesterol. This is absurd! Patents for statin drugs are running out and will likely be replaced by stronger statin-type drugs. You would think that, if statins were working, this would be unnecessary!

If parents and schools are feeding children trash, THAT is the cause of obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, inflammation, etc. There is already an all-time high incidence of children with diabetes and other inflammatory diseases but these medications are not the answer.

Parents should consider feeding their families properly. Check your current diet against our Food Choices ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST diet.

Q: Mike/GA ~ I have debilitating migraines that last up to 4 days that started a few months ago. The drugs are extremely expensive and the side-effects are as bad as the migraines. What alternative therapies can be used to treat migraine?

A: Migraines are caused by many different things, such as injuries, prescription drugs taken, hormonal imbalances or something as simple to correct as nutritional deficiencies. Histamine is always involved in migraines. Almost all are Magnesium deficient. Try yoga plus relaxation training. Many studies have demonstrated doing this is as effective or more effective for treatment of migraine as medications. This training takes more time and effort than using a medication, but once learned, it is free, can be used whenever the patient wishes, and has no negative side effects. Magnesium deficiency releases mast cells, which is caused by histamine.

Read Dr. Lorna’s article in the Reference Center:  Food Choices: High Histamine / Low  HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE LIST/Diet for those who are unable to live without antihistamines every day, triggering your mast cells to release histamine. There are a number of medications listed there that inhibit DAO, which breaks down histamine.

Inhaling lavender essential oil may ease migraine pain.

Try acupuncture and acupressure.

Look for feverfew and willow bark, which are natural anti-inflammatories.

Use ginger in cooking and make ginger tea from freshly grated ginger rhizome.

Try biofeedback.

FIGTreeVitamins MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE for natural stress, anxiety and muscle relaxation (Take 1 capsule upon rising and another at bedtime). Do not take magnesium citrate for migraines! It can make matters worse.

Q: Mildred/SC Can you talk about restless legs syndrome again, what causes it and how can to fix it without drugs? Can it be cured?  Did I hear you say it is associated with suicide?

A: You probably heard one of our News You Can Use discussions, the end of October, regarding depression and suicide. Restless Leg Syndrome is a disorder characterized by an unpleasant tickling or twitching sensation in the leg muscles when sitting or lying down, which is relieved only by moving the legs. The cause of restless legs syndrome is usually unknown. Experts think that RLS may be connected to how the brain uses dopamine and iron. Genetics also plays a role. About half of people with restless legs syndrome have a family member with it.

Data from previous studies show that RLS is associated with cardiovascular disease and depression, and is associated with suicide attempts. It is thought that the fact that it originates in the circulatory system, heart and other muscle suggests that RLS is, at least in part, caused by mineral deficiencies, such as iron and magnesium.  One study suggested that dopamine in the brain plays a role. There are studies going on currently testing whether stress hormones are involved. Studies also show that the condition occurs more often in women than men, at a ratio of about 2 to 1.

Start with Magnesium Taurate or FIGTreeVitamins MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE for natural stress, anxiety and muscle relaxation (Take 1 upon rising and 1 at bedtime, empty stomach), because they calm nerves.

Also need potassium; a mineral complex, such as FIGTreeVitamins.com MULTIMINERAL COMPLEX Ultra Tablets (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime daily) can be very helpful.

Iron bis glycinate (a gentle form of iron) is the easiest to absorb. Stay away from ferrous sulphate.

Q: Diva/L.A. ~ I’ve listened to your show for years and came into your store when you were here in California. That show where the man found his girlfriend’s Valtrex prescription reminded me about finding two round white pills in my daughter’s room today, they are in a blister pack and I have no idea what they are. One has G00 on it and the other is blank. I am not ignorant and assume they are birth control pills, but don’t they usually come in a round plastic one month dispenser? It’s been awhile, but that is what I recall.  She is home from UCLA on winter break. She is 19, so an adult, and I am NOT going to ask her what these are because I am not going to screw up our relationship again (I have a reputation as a “helicopter mom”), but I am very concerned about them.

A: They are Plan B one step. They can have severe side effects. According to NIH: Levonorgestrel is used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse (sex without any method of birth control or with a birth control method that failed or was not used properly [e.g., a condom that slipped or broke or birth control pills that were not taken as scheduled]). Levonorgestrel should not be used to prevent pregnancy on a regular basis. This medication is to be used as an emergency contraceptive or backup in case regular birth control fails or is used incorrectly. Levonorgestrel is in a class of medications called progestins. It works by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary or preventing fertilization of the egg by sperm (male reproductive cells). It also may work by changing the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent development of a pregnancy. Levonorgestrel may prevent pregnancy, but it will not prevent the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV, the virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome [AIDS]) and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Trying to avoid having this conversation with your daughter. Wait for an opening to present itself. Would be better off taking a BC pill; although, Dr. Helen has pointed out that HRT, even BC pills, can lead to cancers later, so take only short-term when sexually active.

LEE-VOH-NOH-JEST’-ROL

Levonorgestrel (Plan B® One-Step)

may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

heavier or lighter than usual menstrual bleeding

spotting or bleeding between menstrual periods

nausea

vomiting

diarrhea

tiredness

headache

dizziness

breast pain or tenderness

Some side effects can be serious. If you experience the following symptom, call your doctor immediately:

Severe lower abdominal pain (3 to 5 weeks after taking levonorgestrel)

Levonorgestrel may cause other side effects. Call your doctor if you have any unusual problems while taking this medication.

If you experience a serious side effect, you or your doctor may send a report to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online (http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch) or by phone (1-800-332-1088).

Q: Carl Posted in the LCF: It has been many months since I wrote to you all. I did the test through the parasite center and it showed parasites. Here where I live in Louisiana there aren’t any real doctors specializing in parasites, so I went to a specialist in Atlanta. He and his team performed surgery, first a biopsy of a mass in my brain that turned out to be parasites. Then they removed what they could and had me go through chemotherapy and radiation therapies. I have fought for my health and my life for months ever since I contact you here. This live chat is a blessing to me and my family as well as your show. If my wife and I hadn’t found you, I know I would be dead, or brain dead but the surgeons in Atlanta caught this just in time. They also told me that cancer cysts are parasites. I wanted to thank you for all your help. I have a few more months of chemo and radiation left to do here in Louisiana and then will return to Atlanta for an all clear. I want to know what I can take after the chemo is done. I know there is a cleanse and something for my immune system. I am already eating only what is on your antifungus diet list and using the wellness package and I know that is keeping me stronger. What is next? I am in faith, with God’s help and yours, I am going to be stronger and healthier than I have ever been. Thank you.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Original post, family consumed raw or undercooked beef and pork, which is how he had the parasites. Serious chemo.

Vicki recommended at least THREE MONTHS of systemically cleansing all of the chemicals from the chemotherapy from your body using the FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package, featuring Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) Tablets as well as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Spirulina, which bind to and expel chemicals. I would also include the FIGTreeVitamins.com VITAMIN C POWDER Calcium Ascorbic Acid (1 scoop 2-3 times daily or more until just before diarrhea), as the combination of PSOEs, Spirulina and Vitamin C Powder will help in the healing process. In addition, please consider taking the FIGTree Vitamins EXTRA STRENGTH BETA GLUCAN slow release tablets to enhance proper immune system function; this is a stronger glucan, as is the C Powder, than those in the FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE.

Dr. Lorna ~ Eat adequate protein (not more than 3 oz protein twice per day), but not too much, because the GI tract has been decimated by chemo; do not want to over-burden his system, consume lots of vegetables, preferably lightly steamed (raw can be too harsh on stomach after chemo) and consume only organic foods. Add liposomal glutathione.

Dr. Perlmutter IV glutathione helps neurologically, might consider finding an ND or FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE DOCTOR in your area; to find a practitioner – enter city and state or zip code and how far you are willing to travel. There will be lists of naturopaths too; however, we recommend finding a D.O. or MD.

Q: Nana/FL My daughter got my granddaughter vaccinated with Gardisil because the schools say they should and ever since then, Abby has been sickly with severe headaches and a foggy brained feel. She is having trouble concentrating in school so now the school wants her to see a psychiatrist and be put on drugs, like attention drugs. Abby is supposed to have 2 or 3 more vaccinations over the coming years and my daughter was told that, now that she had the first one, she has to have the rest. No one can figure out why. I keep saying it happened right after that vaccine but nobody listens to me. Is there something I can give Abby when she stays with me? I will have the entire family here at Christmas, and then Abby is staying through New Years. I figure I can do something then if you can recommend anything.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Time for high dose Vitamin C, ALA. The concept of vaccinations was good in the beginning, but there is little to no testing for safety, little to quality control and the ingredients of vaccines are found to have side-effects.

FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package Ultra Proteozimes, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Spirulina, which bind to and expel chemicals. I would also include the FIGTreeVitamins.com VITAMIN C POWDER Calcium Ascorbic Acid (1 scoop 2-3 times daily or more until just before diarrhea), as the combination of PSOEs, Spirulina and Vitamin C Powder will help in the healing process.

FIGTreeVitamins.com MULTIVITAMIN ONE DAILY Tablets Whole Food Vitamin/mineral supplement (1-2 daily with breakfast or lunch) to supplement meals. Check her current diet against our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST diet, go as organic as possible.

Already had a reaction to the initial vaccine, so taking more does not seem wise. States are starting to sue over required vaccines.

News You Can Use! Friday December 14, 2018 with DocJon & Vicki

News & Discussion!

UPDATE: Manufactured Crisis — HPV, Hype and Horror

We reported this last Friday, Dec 7th on HealthNews you can use.

Dr. Joseph Mercola on Saturday December 08, 2018 did a story on it with some additional data we want to share with you.

INFORMATION AT-A-GLANCE

While the cervical cancer rate in the U.S. is 12 per 100,000, by Merck’s own admission, Gardasil may cause 2,300 serious adverse events per 100,000.

Many of the more serious side effects of Gardasil vaccination are immune-based inflammatory neurodegenerative disorders, suggesting something is causing the immune system to overreact in a detrimental way, sometimes fatally.

One of the leading theories is that the aluminum in Gardasil is causing it to be excessively reactive. Data show Gardasil is several times more reactive than any other vaccine on the market. Gaudasil is the NUMBER ONE most dangerous drug on the market.

Trial data from Merck shows Gardasil may increase your risk of cervical cancer by 44.6 percent if you have been exposed to HPV prior to vaccinatiOn.

As of 2018, about 13,240 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed, and about 4,170 will die from it. If you get regular Pap smears, your chance of dying from cervical cancer is 0.00002 percent.

UPDATE: Senator Dies From Sepsis, a Common Complication of Infection, Including Influenza

And YES, last Friday Dec 7th we also reported this on HealthNews you can use.

Just a little update: Written by Dr. Joseph Mercola Tuesday December 11, 2018

INFORMATION AT-A-GLANCE

New York State Senator José Peralta — an outspoken proponent of annual flu vaccinations — died November 22, 2018, at the age of 47 from sudden septic shock AFTER receiving a flu vaccine. Sepsis is the official cause of death.

Sepsis is one of the leading causes of influenza-related deaths. When your immune system is weak, influenza can weaken it further, allowing a secondary infection to take hold. Sepsis is typically caused by this secondary infection

Before vaccines against the following diseases became available and were routinely used, the annual death toll in the U.S. from rubella was 17 to 24; mumps 39 to 50, chickenpox 105 to 138 and measles 440 to 552. For comparison, each year 100 people die from being struck by lightning, 200 die from choking on food, 350 die from slip and fall accidents in the bath or shower, 15,000 die from Clostridium difficile infections, 40,000 from car crashes and 250,000 from medical errors (the number is supposedly much Higher, over a million, but that is the official number). SO C-diff? Usually caused by antibiotic related problems, explosive diarrhea etc. While some vaccines have indisputably saved lives, one must also compare the estimated number of lives saved against the number of people harmed by that same vaccine.

Unfortunately, it’s virtually impossible to accurately ascertain vaccine-related harm due to severe underreporting and lack of investigation of serious health problems reported after vaccination.

DISCUSSION: FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, which contains a total of 5 products: 1 bottle Whole Food Multi-Vitamin 60 tablets, 1 bottle Mineral Complex Ultra 250 tablets, 1 Bottle Beta Glucan (100mg), 60 capsules, 1 bottle Vitamin C 1000 Buffered, 90 Tablets, 1 bottle Probiotic Enteric-coat, 60 capsules.

FDA Warns Manufacturer Involved in Valsartan Recall

13Dec18  FDA.gov

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has sent a warning letter to China-based Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals (ZHP), the company at the center of the tainted valsartan crisis.

ZHP makes the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in valsartan products that have been found to be tainted with human carcinogens.

The warning letter states that ZHP is the subject of an ongoing FDA investigation into this issue and outlines several manufacturing violations at ZHP’s Chuannan facility, including impurity control, change control, and cross contamination from one manufacturing process line to another.

SO, you are asking what is this drug, well a common brand is Diovan. It is a Antihypertensive drug; It can treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It can also lower the risk of death after a heart attack.

Most recently, on November 27, Teva Pharmaceuticals recalled all lots of amlodipine/valsartan combination tablets and amlodipine/valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide combination tablets in the United States after carcinogens were  detected in the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient manufactured by Mylan India, as reported by Medscape Medical News.

On November 20, Mylan Pharmaceuticals announced a recall of 15 lots of medicines containing valsartan because of the presence of the carcinogens.

DISCUSSION: Look up all of the drugs you take regularly to figure out if any of the medicines you are taking have been recalled.

Diabetes: Are you over-monitoring your blood sugar?

Published Wednesday 12 December 2018 by Medscape as reported by the CDC

Many people living with type 2 diabetes monitor their blood sugar levels on a daily basis, but does that really make a difference to health? A new study suggests that they may be over-monitoring.

Many people with type 2 diabetes are testing their blood sugar levels too often, new research finds.

According to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, about 30.3 million people in the United States live with diabetes, which equates to almost one in 10 individuals.

The most commonly diagnosed form of diabetes is type 2 diabetes, which, more often than not, does not require insulin injections.

Instead, people with type 2 diabetes can manage their condition by taking the appropriate medication. OR BETTER STILL CLEAN UP THEIR DIET!!

A drug that doctors often prescribe for this form of diabetes is metformin, which helps people keep their blood sugar levels under control.

As keeping blood sugar in check is so important in diabetes, endocrinologists advise people with this condition to perform regular, simple blood tests that they can do at home with the appropriate devices.

However, emerging evidence suggests that many people living with type 2 diabetes may be erring too much on the side of caution and taking these tests too often, without deriving any real benefits from doing so.

A new study by researchers from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor suggests that a significant percentage of people with type 2 diabetes test their blood sugar levels at least twice a day.

SO FAR SO GOOD RIGHT, MAKES SENCE, WELLL FOLLOW THE MONEY …

These findings, which appear in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, indicate that insurance plans may be paying excessive amounts of money for the supplies they require for unnecessary testing.

Too many prescriptions for test strips

Dr. Kevin Platt, who is in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, led a team who looked at the insurance data of 370,740 people with type 2 diabetes. The researchers specifically assessed how these individuals had been filling test-strip prescriptions for blood sugar tests following the updated guidelines that the Endocrine Society and Society of General Internal Medicine issued in 2013.

These guidelines recommended that people with type 2 diabetes reduced the frequency of at-home blood sugar level tests.

DISCUSSION: FIGTreeVitamins.com GLUCOSE-BUSTER Package combines 1 bottle each FIGTree Glucose Support, FIGTree Alpha Lipoic Acid and FIGTree Cod Liver Oil. Recommended Usage: Take all three products together, at the same time, on an EMPTY STOMACH, as follows: Glucose Support (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime) WITH FIGTree Cod Liver Oil (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime), PLUS FIGTree Alpha Lipoic Acid (1 upon rising and 1 at bedtime). This package is a ONE MONTH SUPPLY. Since most high blood sugar related diseases are likely caused by fungal overgrowth, there may be additional benefit adding the FIGTree Vitamins ANTIFUNGAL PACKAGE, as well.

ALL OF THE PRODUCTS IN THE GLUCOSE BUSTER PACKAGE MAY BE TAKEN TOGETHER AT THE APPOINTED TIMES OF DAY WITH WATER ~ BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR BLOOD SUGAR REGULARLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY WHILE TAKING THIS PACKAGE, IF TAKING PRESCRIPTION ORAL MEDICATIONS, SUCH AS GLUCOPHAGE (METFORMIN), GLIPIZIDE, GLYBURIDE OR OTHER BLOOD SUGAR ALTERING DRUGS.

We also recommend following our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST for optimal results.

Is it possible to reverse ‘chemo brain?’

Published Saturday 8 December 2018 by Reuters

Chemotherapy can affect a person’s brain for years after coming to an end. How does it actually change the brain, and is there anything that scientists can do to reverse these effects?

Many people who undergo chemotherapy will notice cognitive impairment and behavioral changes. This might include difficulty with movement.

Some people refer to this effect as “chemo brain.”

It can last for months or years, impacting people’s quality of life following cancer treatment.

Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in California recently conducted a study to find out exactly how and why chemotherapy agents affect the brain, and to see whether or not there is any way to block or reverse that effect.

“Cognitive dysfunction after cancer therapy,” explains senior study author Dr. Michelle Monje, “is a real and recognized syndrome.”

Presently all that can be done is to try and prevent it in the first place…

I personally disagree, and I speak only for me. If I ever had to have chemo I would cleanse heavily afterwards and several other things.

DISCUSSION: Where there is an inflammatory condition, also consider FIGTreeVitamins SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package WITH FIGTreeVitamins EXTRA STRENGTH BETA GLUCAN slow release tablets.

We also recommend following our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST for optimal results.

CALLER:   Sissy / Pensacola, FL ~ Fibromyalgia: Trying to work with doctor and he has no recommendations. Flare-ups involve joint inflammation.

MEDICATIONS TAKEN: 2 Antidepressants.

100% participants in clinical trial for SSRIs were found to be grossly deficient in magnesium. FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE.  

DISCUSSION: Long-term Antidepressant use destroys DAO production, which causes histamine intolerance, which leads to Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia. Try magnesium, such as FIGTreeVitamins MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE for natural stress, anxiety and muscle relaxation (Take 1 capsule per day upon rising; may take another at bedtime); Fibromyalgia is not “all in your head;” during an MRI, fibromyalgia shows inflammation throughout the brain. Dr. Lorna ~ Fibromyalgia linked to high histamine levels. Cold and wet could indicate mold is causing this recent inflammatory response. Read Dr. Lorna’s article in the Reference Center:  High Histamine / Low HISTAMINE INTOLERANCE LIST/Diet for those who are unable to live without anti-histamines every day, triggering your mast cells to release histamine. This will help you avoid foods that make your fibromyalgia worse.

Q: RachelB/FL What is Dr. Walker’s opinion of Entyvio for Crohn’s Disease? I am 38 and took a lot of antibiotics as a child, so I think that is part of why I have Crohn’s Disease. I’ve tried all of the drugs and infusions recommended but nothing worked. Entyvio is supposed to cure my Crohn’s Disease but it is inconvenient because I have to get it by IV at the doctor’s office and, with my new job, my hours aren’t as flexible. At least I only have to go every other month after a few months of going more often and they are available on Saturdays. I have taken a lot of drug therapies over the past five years, just started on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet in November after Thanksgiving, but so far nothing has freed me from the limitations of Crohn’s Disease, which has prevented me from enjoying life. I am interested in your thoughts. Thank you. Rachel.

A: Entyvio is NOT a cure for Crohn’s Disease, so whoever told you that is wrong and there are many harmful side-effects using this drug infusion (see below from the NIH website).

Dr. Lorna ~ Entyvio is a newer drug in the same class as Humira and Remicade. Supposed to target just your GI tract, unlike Humira and Remicade but it still effects your immune system. May get rare fungal or viral infections, as has happened with other immune-suppresants.

Probably correct that antibiotic use is linked to your Crohn’s Disease. Probiotics may or may not help but would give it a try. A year to 1.5 years for elimination of gluten and dairy to help; try Low FODMAPS & FOOD COMBINING Diet for histamine intolerance. Also consider the FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE,

VEDOLIZUMAB INJECTION

pronounced as (ve” doe liz’ ue mab)

Why is this medication prescribed?

Vedolizumab injection is used to relieve the symptoms of certain autoimmune disorders (conditions in which the immune system attacks healthy parts of the body and causes pain, swelling, and damage) of the gastrointestinal tract including:

Crohn’s disease (a condition in which the body attacks the lining of the digestive tract, causing pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fever) that has not improved when treated with other medications.

Ulcerative colitis (condition that causes swelling and sores in the lining of the large intestine) that has not improved when treated with other medications.

Vedolizumab injection is in a class of medications called integrin receptor antagonists. It works by blocking the action of certain cells in the body that cause inflammation.

Vedolizumab injection may cause serious allergic reactions during an infusion and for several hours afterward. A doctor or nurse will monitor you during this time to be sure you are not having a serious reaction to the medication. You may be given other medications to treat reactions to vedolizumab injection. Tell your doctor or nurse immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms during or after your infusion: rash; itching; swelling of the face, eyes, mouth, throat, tongue, or lips; difficulty breathing or swallowing; wheezing, flushing; dizziness; feeling hot; or a fast or racing heartbeat.

Vedolizumab injection may help control your symptoms, but it will not cure your condition. Your doctor will watch you carefully to see how well vedolizumab injection works for you. If your condition has not improved after 14 weeks, your doctor may stop treating you with vedolizumab injection. It is important to tell your doctor how you are feeling during your treatment.

What special precautions should I follow?

Before taking vedolizumab,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to vedolizumab, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in vedolizumab injection. Ask your pharmacist or check the Medication Guide for a list of the ingredients.

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what other prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or plan to take. Be sure to mention any of the following: adalimumab (Humira), certolizumab (Cimzia), golimumab (Simponi), infliximab (Remicade), or natalizumab (Tysabri). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.

  • tell your doctor if you have liver problems, if you have tuberculosis or have been in close contact with someone with tuberculosis, or if you currently have or think you have an infection, or if you have infections that come and go or ongoing infections that do not go away.

  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you become pregnant while taking vedolizumab, call your doctor.

  • ask your doctor whether you should receive any vaccinations before you begin your treatment with vedolizumab injection. If possible, all vaccinations should be brought up to date before beginning treatment. Do not have any vaccinations during your treatment without talking to your doctor.

What side effects can this medication cause? Vedolizumab may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

  • headache

  • nausea

  • joint or back pain

  • pain in your arms and legs

Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately or get emergency medical treatment:

  • fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, chills, aches and other signs of infection

  • red or painful skin or sores on your body

  • pain during urination

  • confusion or memory problems

  • loss of balance

  • changes in walking or speech

  • decreased strength or weakness on one side of your body

  • blurred vision or loss of vision

  • extreme tiredness

  • loss of appetite

  • pain in the upper right part of the stomach

  • unusual bruising or bleeding

  • dark urine

  • yellowing of the skin or eyes

Vedolizumab may cause other side effects. Call your doctor if you have any unusual problems while taking this medication.

Manufactured Crisis: HPV, Hype & Horror

ANH-USA HPV

Original article published ON JULY 11, 2018 With several follow-ups. HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines are touted as a safe and effective cure for cervical cancer, you have seen the commercials … where your teenage daughter or son says you, the parent, signed their death warrant because you did not love them enough to have them vaccinated against HPV. But the evidence tells a different story.

The Alliance for natural health and others made a series of films, the synopsis of the film states:

The pharmaceutical industry used faulty research, paid doctors and manipulated the media to push an unsafe vaccine onto the market.

They used political pressure to force this vaccine onto the public, despite any demonstrable public threat.

The result has been the devastation of many young girls’ (and also young boys) lives.

“Through interviews with leading experts, victims, and our own analysis of the vaccines themselves, the Alliance for Natural Health uncovered a conspiracy of greed that is being perpetrated on families around the world.”

Immediately after receiving her first dose of Gardasil, Taylor Wickline began displaying symptoms of vaccine injury that have plagued her for the last decade. We caught up with her and her mother at Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio in between the medical procedures that have become a full-time job for the pair. Their story is impactful and inspiring.

Less than two weeks after Emily’s daughter, Christina, received her third dose of Gardasil she passed away. The coroner could determine no cause of death. Emily’s mission since the loss of her daughter under such unusual circumstances has been to find out what happened to Chris and all of the other unexplained deaths that have been reported after the administration of HPV vaccines.

Follow the money trail on these issues…and lest you think for one minute that your congressman or senator is going to advocate for you, forget it! I remember the blowout about then Gov. Ricky Perry’s Executive Order commanding every 11-12 year old girl in Texas to get the Gardasil vaccine (which was quickly terminated)…turns out that Merck funds many governors and other legislators throughout the nation to get their products shoved down our throats.

NY State Senator Dies of Sepsis

Published by the National Vaccine Information Centerhttps://thevaccinereaction.org/

Thursday December 6 2018

An Eight-year-old little girl of LeFrank City, New York died on Feb. 5, 2018 of “flu-related” symptoms, according to local health authorities. Published reports did not indicate whether the child had received the influenza vaccine.

New York State Senator José Peralta (D-East Elmhurst) said her death was tragic and that it “reminds us of how dangerous the flu outbreak is” and he urged New Yorkers to “protect themselves, and their children, and get vaccinated.” He added, “We need to ensure we do everything possible to combat the spread of this deadly virus. The influenza vaccine can be the difference between life and death.”

Partly in response to the little girl’s death, Sen. Peralta partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst to sponsor free influenza vaccinations in LeFrank City on Nov. 17, 2018. Some 90 area residents were vaccinated. “The influenza vaccine can be the difference between life and death. I want to thank NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst and LeFrank City management for making Saturday’s flu clinic possible and providing potentially lifesaving vaccines to the community,” said Peralta.

On Nov. 20, 3 days after the flu shot, Peralta, 47, developed a fever. The following day, he became “disoriented and had trouble breathing.” He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, NY where he died that evening. “We really don’t know what happened,” said Peralta’s wife, Evelyn Peralta. “He just took a turn for the worst.”

An article in The New York Times quoted Sen. Peralta’s director of communications, Chris Sosa, as saying, “It was like pulling teeth to get him (Peralta) to talk about not feeling well. He just thought he was having symptoms related to getting the flu shot.”

Officially Peralta’s death was attributed to sepsis—an overstimulation of the immune system triggered by an infection.

Senator Peralta was trying to do something good for his constituents, something he believed was important, it is very sad he died.

Going to report on one other flu shot adverse event because I want to read a paragraph from the CDC.

Nevada Man Diagnosed With Guillain-Barré Syndrome After Getting Flu Shot

Shane Morgan of Las Vegas, Nevada was vaccinated against influenza on Nov. 2, 2018. Within 36 hours, he began exhibiting symptoms of influenza. “About 36 hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick,” said Mr. Morgan’s wife, Monique.

After a week of being ill at home, Mr. Morgan told his wife I need you to take me to the emergency room; he could not feel his legs and arms and by the time he got to the hospital he was unable to speak, walk, see or even BREATHE.

Mr. Morgan, who had previously been “perfectly healthy,” was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Centennial Hills Hospital in Las Vegas on Nov. 14, where he was placed on a ventilator and feeding tube. Doctors diagnosed him as having Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).

As of November 28, 2018, the CDC Talks Side-effects of Flu Shot

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states the most common side effects of the influenza vaccine are soreness, redness and/or swelling at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea and muscle aches and that, as with any vaccine, more serious adverse effects may occur and could include fainting, high fever or behavioral changes.

The CDC advises watching out for post-vaccination signs of a severe allergic reaction, which may include difficulty breathing, hoarseness or wheezing, swelling around the eyes or lips, hives, paleness, weakness, rapid heartbeat or dizziness.

The CDC admits that GBS is also a potential risk associated with the seasonal influenza vaccine. GBS is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the peripheral nervous system (the network of nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord), resulting in muscle weakness, sometimes paralysis and breathing difficulties, which in some cases may lead to death.

Almost Half of Americans to Skip Flu Shot This Year

Medscape news Friday, December 7, 2018

More than 40% of Americans have not been vaccinated against influenza this year and don’t plan to get vaccinated, despite repeated warnings about the potential dangers of the flu, as well as last year’s record-high number of deaths from flu, a new survey indicates.

Results showed that 43% of adults had received the flu shot and that 14% had not yet been vaccinated but intended to get vaccinated this season. Yet, 41% of adults surveyed said they had not been vaccinated and did not intend to get vaccinated. About 2% were undecided about getting the flu shot or did not respond to the question.

The article goes on to say:

Misconceptions Are Common! The top reasons people cited for not getting vaccinated against the flu were concern about side effects from the vaccine (36%), concern about getting the flu from the vaccine (31%), and because they never get the flu or they do not think the flu vaccine works (31%).

“Unfortunately, many people are still not getting flu shots due to broader misconceptions about the value of receiving a flu shot and concerns about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines,” Caitlin Oppenheimer, MPH, senior vice president of public health research at, National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago said in a news release.

DISCUSSION: Have you noticed that they never release a study indicating how many who die from the flu each year had the flu vaccine, or any vaccine? They also never release a list of the number of people who die from vaccines and what prescription drugs they take daily, which should also, potentially harmfully, affect a person’s ability to tolerate vaccines. Lack of transparency is one of the many reasons people no longer trust the government and ignore what they say.

All that said, alternative suggestions to prevent yourself from getting the flu…

If you are generally well and simply want to provide your body with nutrients that may be lacking, and also want to enhance proper immune system function, we recommend FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, which contains a total of 5 products: 1 bottle Whole Food Multi-Vitamin 60 tablets, 1 bottle Mineral Complex Ultra 250 tablets, 1 Bottle Beta Glucan (100mg), 60 capsules, 1 bottle Vitamin C 1000 Buffered, 90 Tablets, 1 bottle Probiotic Enteric-coat, 60 capsules.

Orange juice, leafy greens and berries may be tied to decreased memory loss in men

Date:  November 21, 2018

Source: American Academy of Neurology

Eating leafy greens, dark orange and red vegetables and berry fruits, and drinking orange juice may be associated with a lower risk of memory loss over time in men, according to a study published in the November 21, 2018, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

“One of the most important factors in this study is that we were able to research and track such a large group of men over a 20-year period of time, allowing for very telling results,” said study author Changzheng Yuan, ScD, of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. “Our studies provide further evidence dietary choices can be important to maintain your brain health.”

The study looked at 27,842 men with an average age of 51 who were all health professionals. Participants filled out questionnaires about how many servings of fruits, vegetables and other foods they had each day at the beginning of the study and then every four years for 20 years. A serving of fruit is considered one cup of fruit or ½ cup of fruit juice. A serving of vegetables is considered one cup of raw vegetables or two cups of leafy greens.

Participants also took subjective tests of their thinking and memory skills at least four years before the end of the study, when they were an average age of 73. The test is designed to detect changes that people can notice in how well they are remembering things before those changes would be detected by objective cognitive tests. Changes in memory reported by the participants would be considered precursors to mild cognitive impairment. The six questions include “Do you have more trouble than usual remembering a short list of items, such as a shopping list?” and “Do you have more trouble than usual following a group conversation or a plot in a TV program due to your memory?”

The men who drank orange juice every day were 47 percent less likely to develop poor thinking skills than the men who drank less than one serving per month.

DISCUSSION: I would consume oranges instead of orange juice because of the high sugar content in juice; it takes 4-6 Valencia oranges, for instance, to get 8 ounces of OJ; who eats that man oranges in a day?

FIGTreeVitamins.com BRAIN ~ PHOSPHATIDYL SERINE COMPLEX Softgels (2 capsules upon rising and 2 capsules midday, but not later than a minimum of 5 hours before bedtime, for 2-3 weeks, then may reduce to 2 upon rising daily thereafter); this provides brain nutrients for mental clarity, focus and memory. Couple with  FIGTreeVitamin.com 100% Pure, soy-free COD LIVER OIL Softgels (1 upon rising and 2 at bedtime) for heart and neurological concerns. Note from FIGTree LIVE: Most brands of fish oil are cut with soybean oil, which prevents the proper absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and amino acids; it is often marked as Vitamin E or tocopherols.

A COMPOUND FOUND IN APPLES CAN SLOW DOWN AGING

Medical News Today

4 October 2018

One key factor in the aging process is when a cell it is no longer able to divide.

When that eventually happens, the cell releases inflammatory signals that prompt the immune system to “clear out” that damaged cell.

Younger bodies can easily remove these cells, but as we grow older, our systems become less well equipped to do so.

This causes an accumulation of damaged cells, which gives rise to low-level inflammation and then tissue breakup.

“These results suggest,” points out Prof. Robbins, “that we can extend the period of health, termed healthspan, even towards the end of life.”

In the recent study, the researchers tested 10 flavonoids, which are naturally occurring compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, in aging mice. Mice have brain action and concentration, 98% same DNA, of humans. Trivia: 98% DNA of a banana is in your body. ;-D

DISCUSSION:

Make it the Granny Smith apple, which is very high in malic acid, less sugar and naturally cleanse out your liver and gallbladder – the apple a day that keeps the doctor away is likely the Granny Smith!

Q: Missy/AL Posted Under MOM GIVING UP

I am frustrated with mother, age 68 widow on 8 medications, had uterine CA with hysterectomy 15 years ago then breast CA with mastectomy 4 years ago and now diagnosed with colon CA. She refuses to do anything and is ready to die. How do we convince her to live?

A: We have been posting back and forth in the Live Chat Forum through the link above; Missy chose to post her answers to the Questionnaire in the Live Chat Forum on her Mom’s behalf and I had some responses, but she also would like everyone else’s input.

Dr. Lorna ~ Chemo causes deficiencies and cancer three times could be depressing, and chemo is carcinogenic. If she has not rebuilt her immune system since all of those cancer treatments, she needs to do so. Dr. L. recommended that her daughter take over her  nutrition care and add supplements. https://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/ can be inspirational for cancer patients who have lost hope.

Vicki Post: Antibiotics destroy beneficial flora necessary for proper digestion of nutrients from the foods we consume, as well as building our immune systems, which results in a weakened immune system and progressive illness or disease. Statin drugs, such as Atorvastatin (Lipitor), are shown to cause many deficiencies, as well, which is why it is essential to take CoQ10 with statin drugs. We recommend FIGTreeVitamins.com 100% pure, soy-free COQ10 200MG per softgel (1 upon rising; may repeat midday). Exemestane (Aromasin) suppresses estrogen production, when in fact, we have learned from Dr. Helen that using a natural progesterone cream could balance hormone levels so that estrogen is not “dominant.” An unaddressed hormone imbalance can result in heart problems, such as high blood pressure. Amlodipine (Norvasc, a calcium channel blocker) and Lisinopril (an ACE inhibitor) is now linked to various forms of cancers; however, studies are ongoing. Nadalol (Corgard – Beta Blocker), Enalapril (Vasotec – ACE inhibitor – is this in addition to Lisinopril?) and Miralax (a chemical bowel loosener) and Neurontin (Gabapentin for neurological problems, probably caused by chemo). Asking one of your mother’s doctors to help her wean off of some of these medications can be very helpful in making her feel stronger and better about life. 

It is likely that some of these medications are causing vitamin, amino acid, EFA and mineral deficiencies and minerals are essential for muscle health, including the heart muscle. At the very least, the FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, should be helpful, as would checking her diet against our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST diet. For severe constipation, likely caused by killing off cancer (fungal, parasitic, viral and/or bacterial microbes) and dumping them into her intestinal system, which can become sluggish after chemo too. 

Also, cancer cells LOVE sugar, so Ensure, PBJ sandwiches, etc. are not well-advised; however, I understand she needs nutritional help. I suggest instead of Ensure, she consume FIGTreeVitamins.com raw/undenatured, organic unflavored WHEY PROTEIN Powder. Making easy to consume, nutritive foods, such as vegetable soups (no starchy veggies), vegetable smoothies, etc. should be very helpful for her. Soft cooked eggs are also a great addition for more protein.

Q: Eric/AL (fake name and state) My wife’s doctor told me she is a hypochondriac (hypochondriasis) and recommended some drugs (Effexor XR for depression, Propranolol for anxiety and fear, and Xanax to keep her calm so she doesn’t freak out constantly). And, of course, she has to have brand because generics don’t work for her. She is always complaining about something, too weak, too tired, too upset, too something that prevents her from joining me in all of the activities I enjoy that we both used to enjoy together. There is never enough attention, enough love and cuddling, enough words or actions, that make her feel good, or even better. She goes ballistic on people for nothing and freaks out over everything, including people not taking her over-inflated complaints seriously. She has accused me of cheating on her regularly and when I told her I may as well do what I am accused of, it made everything worse. She checks my emails, cellphone, pockets, car and my body for signs of cheating. Even thought the doctors obviously think she is nuts, I still love her and hate to think there is something wrong that they are missing. She blew up on everyone Thanksgiving and had to be hospitalized. What can we do to get her well again? And thanks for letting me blow off steam. Eric (not my real name) and I sent this from my sister’s house.

A: Dr. Jon ~ has seen this previously. Begins with chills, fever, progresses to diarrhea, nausea, etc. then goes to hallucinations. Next time she is in the doctor’s office, ask for testing for tick bite/possible Lyme’s disease.

Dr. Lorna ~ Look at the gut for parasites or fungal overgrowth, as this all may be from infection and the inflammation makes it worse. Agree that she may need further lab work but we do not know what, if any, she has had. Not going to hurt to do more testing, SIBO, etc. Visit MYMEDLAB.com for parasite testing or can use Parasitology Center in AZ and use Dr. Helen. 

We had a full moon (beaver moon) at Thanksgiving, so consider parasites?? Go to a parasitologist or Functional Medicine Doctor. The antidepressants may be doing more harm than good.

EMAILS AND POSTS

Q: AaronW made a lengthy Post, so here is the jist: His mother-in-law, over-60 but not old enough for retirement and Medicare, had colon cancer, surgical removal of most of her colon, then chemotherapy. They all know this is because of her lifelong constipation (less than 1 BM daily). No food or seasonal allergies.

The bill for the doctor who oversaw her chemo only came to just over $91,000. Her obamacare insurance, which costs her nearly $10,000 year, covers 80% after a $10,000 deductible, and she ends up with an out of pocket expense for that doctor’s bill alone of about $18,000. That she had about $50,000 out of pocket this year and faces an additional $50,000 next year because of her $10,000 deductible and 20% co-pay, which begins all over again in January. He also complains of the “Medicare for All,” which he researched, found that, because of her age, her care would be drug management and that younger people would wait in line for actual medical care.

They, and she, are now willing to change her diet (he says she has never smoked or consumed alcohol, but has always had a love of sweets, but has changed to using Splenda). Until cancer, she never took drugs except the occasional aspirin.

What vitamins does she need now that her surgery and chemo are over? I know you like cleanses. Which one does she need?

AARON’S POST

https://figtreelive.com/forum/general-health-chat/chemo-and-other-medical-expenses/

A: Dr. Lorna ~ There is a gold or platinum, silver and bronze level of obamacare products but the insurance companies dictate premium costs and because they are required to cover everyone, including pre-existing, the care is the same across the board. It costs the middle class more and they gain less. Deductibles can go up into the $20k’s and pay as little as 65%, meaning you pay out 35%. Advice is to pay the doctor $50 month; if he sends you to collections, you pay $50 month to show effort, but you are not depleting your savings. Bill collectors cannot touch your savings.

We recommend checking her diet against our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST for optimal results, focusing on multi-colored non-starchy vegetables, including veggies smoothies. RAW is excellent.

STOP using Splenda! If she has to sweeten something, try JULIAN BAKERY MONK FRUIT (also available in 100% Organic).

To systemically cleanse from head to toe the chemicals used during chemo from her body, I recommend she use FIGTreeVitamins.com SYSTEMIC CLEANSING Package, featuring Enteric Proteolytic Systemic Oral Enzymes (PSOEs) Tablets for 3-6 months.

In addition, I would replenish lost nutrients by also using FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, which contains a total of 5 products: 1 bottle Whole Food Multi-Vitamin 60 tablets, 1 bottle Mineral Complex Ultra 250 tablets, 1 Bottle Beta Glucan (100mg), 60 capsules, 1 bottle Vitamin C 1000 Buffered, 90 Tablets, 1 bottle Probiotic Enteric-coat, 60 capsules.

Since many diseases are rooted in fungal overgrowth, there may be additional benefit adding the FIGTree Vitamins ANTIFUNGAL PACKAGE, as well; although, theoretically, the chemo should have killed all fungus and other toxic microbes in her body.

Once she completes the cleansing, and to insure that she has regular bowel movements and absorbs the most nutrients from her food, I recommend using FIGTreeVitamins’ DIGESTION PACKAGE.

NOTE: Those taking certain blood pressure, blood thinning or lubricating, steroidal or pain-killing medications may not be able to use this package! Be sure to provide a complete list of medications taken and discuss here and with your healthcare professional.

Q: Chelsea/FL My husband is in the Navy, we have been married for 8 months and he went to sea just two weeks ago. Two days ago, I found out I am 7 weeks pregnant and likely to have our baby while he is away. I got to Skype with him yesterday to tell him and he is so happy! I have a lot of friends, also Navy wives, but I miss my husband. This is a huge responsibility for me alone. My mom and dad will be here the last month of my pregnancy, for delivery in June and aftercare, so that’s a relief. What is the best thing for a healthy pregnancy? I don’t like the pharmacy vitamins and minerals and want natural.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Agree about synthetics. Thorne has a great prenatal vitamin that has extra folate. Designs for Health also have a great prenatal. If not consuming dairy, please consume plenty of foods with calcium and magnesium, in addition to the multi-vitamin. Will also require more calories during the second and third trimester, between 20-30 lbs increase of weight is normal.

Tell your friends too, because they will be excited to help you and your parents as much as they can and they will be a wonderful support for you without your husband being there. Embrace your extended family, as many of them will be friends for life, truly.

Vicki: Check your diet against our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST and consider using FIGTreeVitamins.com BASIC WELLNESS PACKAGE, which contains a total of 5 products: 1 bottle Whole Food Multi-Vitamin 60 tablets, 1 bottle Mineral Complex Ultra 250 tablets, 1 Bottle Beta Glucan (100mg), 60 capsules, 1 bottle Vitamin C 1000 Buffered, 90 Tablets, 1 bottle Probiotic Enteric-coat, 60 capsules.

Q: Phil/IN I am making my final move to Pensacola, from Indiana, after Christmas, then starting my new job on January 7 working for the Naval base. My aunt Patty lives in Milton and loves your show. She also uses a lot of the products you recommended for her and, when I asked her what she thought my Mom would like for Christmas, she suggested reaching out to you for some help. My parents are both diabetic and taking Metformin, Rosuvastatin and Dad also uses Zestoretic. Dad is going to stick to what he is doing now but Mom wants something natural. They eat two different sets of meals because Mom is eating mostly vegetables (no potatoes or breads), small servings of brown rice and main dish is all organic beef, chicken, eggs or wild salmon from Alaska, so I am proud of her. She also has lost 15 pounds so far. What can she use instead of Metformin and Crestor. Is there anything else you can recommend for her? I am hoping dad will follow what she does as she sees her getting healthier.

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Continue to do what she is doing and losing weight, because they will help her get off of Metformin. Not a fan of statins; If not taking a multiple, magnesium (diabetics need more). Once she reaches her ideal weight, she will probably not need anything.

FIGTreeVitamins.com GLUCOSE-BUSTER Package combines 1 bottle each FIGTree Glucose Support, FIGTree Alpha Lipoic Acid and FIGTree Cod Liver Oil. Recommended Usage: Take all three products together, at the same time, on an EMPTY STOMACH, as follows: Glucose Support (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime) WITH FIGTree Cod Liver Oil (2 upon rising and 2 at bedtime), PLUS FIGTree Alpha Lipoic Acid (1 upon rising and 1 at bedtime). This package is a ONE MONTH SUPPLY. Since most high blood sugar related diseases are likely caused by fungal overgrowth, there may be additional benefit adding the FIGTree Vitamins ANTIFUNGAL PACKAGE, as well.

ALL OF THE PRODUCTS IN THE GLUCOSE BUSTER PACKAGE MAY BE TAKEN TOGETHER AT THE APPOINTED TIMES OF DAY WITH WATER ~ BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR BLOOD SUGAR REGULARLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY WHILE TAKING THIS PACKAGE, IF TAKING PRESCRIPTION ORAL MEDICATIONS, SUCH AS GLUCOPHAGE (METFORMIN), GLIPIZIDE, GLYBURIDE OR OTHER BLOOD SUGAR ALTERING DRUGS.

We also recommend following our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST for optimal results.

Q: Rena/MS I have a dog with crystals in her urine and the vet says she could have bladder cancer but said we should have her on a high protein diet with no grains. The vet also said he can put her on alopurinol but I don’t like drugs. What do you recommend for dogs with urine crystals?

A: Dr. Lorna ~ Cats and dogs are carnivores; they cannot process grain (kibble) you are changing the pH of their urine and substances that normally stay out of the urine, become crystals. Get rid of the grains/carbs.

Tapioca, potatoes, etc. are starches that are just as harmful.

Q: Porky/MS The respiratory package you recommend for my allergies worked great. Will it work for colds too? I started using it when I thought I was coming down with a cold last Sunday and it fixed it in time for Thanksgiving. Now I’m out of everything except the spray. It looks like they changed the name to the allergy and respiratory package. Is that the same thing? Thanks

A: Dr. Lorna ~ 95% of the time, eat healthy, and enjoy Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas day, New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day, ok to eat some not so healthy foods without problems.

Yes, it is the same thing. Also, that spray, which is great for your throat, is also great for cleaning/disinfecting surfaces, like your kitchen and bathroom countertops. The FIGTreeVitamins.com ALLERGY & RESPIRATORY BALANCE Package contains ONE bottle Extra Strength Beta Glucan 250mg, 60 tablets, TWO bottles Oregamax, 90 capsules, ONE bottle high potency Wild-Crafted Mediterranean Oil of Oregano (70% active carvacrols!), 1 oz and ONE bottle OregaSpray. 

The combination in this package is clinically shown to aid with clearing the lungs and throat of congestion and inflammation, aiding with naturally killing the root cause of infection, as well as enhancing immune system function to become better faster, particularly for those with recurring respiratory conditions, such as colds, allergies, asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, and while they cannot cure progressive diseases caused by severe damages from smoking, pollution, asbestos and other toxic exposure, the products in this package have been found to help ease some of the discomfort of those with COPD, emphysema and other progressive respiratory diseases.

It is safe to take this package with antibiotics that your doctor may prescribe for you and it will help to quicken the healing process under normal circumstances.

NOTE: IF YOUR DOCTOR PRESCRIBES ANTIBIOTICS FOR YOU, PLEASE ALSO TAKE FIGTREE’S PROBIOTIC ENTERIC-COAT (1 capsule 2 hours after each antibiotic dose, plus 1-2 probiotics at bedtime, at least 2 hours after your last antibiotic dose).

THIS PACKAGE IS ALSO HIGHLY EFFECTIVE IF YOU BEGIN USING THE PRODUCTS AT THE FIRST SIGN OF A COLD, SORE THROAT OR CONGESTION, so we recommend keeping the ALLERGY & RESPIRATORY BALANCE Package on-hand in your medicine cabinet for immediate use when needed.
