    • ANSWER:
      A low purine diet Will help those suffering from gout avoid attacks.

      Here is a list of some of the foods that are high in purines. These foods have the highest concentration of purines and should therefore be avoided by people that are prone to or are already suffering from gout.
      Beef, Pork, Bacon, Lamb, Seafood, Foods that are made with yeast like beer or bread, Alcoholic beverages
      These foods, while high in purine levels that can aggravate the symptoms of gout can be had occasionally by those who usually follow a low purine diet.
      Asparagus, Cauliflower, Mushrooms, Peas, Spinach, Whole grain breads and cereals, White poultry meats, like chicken, duck or turkey, Kidney and lima beans.
      The following foods are safe to eat in a low purine diet; however these should not be the only food you eat.
      Green vegetables and tomatoes, Fruits and fruit juices, Breads that do not use yeast (may be found in the kosher section or a health food store), Nuts, Milk and milk products such as butter and cheese, Chocolate, Coffee and tea.

      food to AVOID when you have gout :

      all meat, esparragus, coliflower, spinach, fish especially oily fish like anchovies and shell fish, alcohol, oats, legumes, sugary food.

      You CAN eat:

      dairy products, eggs, potato, pasta, all vegatales but the above, rice, fruit (limit to 2 portions a day).

      An infusion of rosemary tea is very soothing. (1 litre a day)

      1. Lemon Juice

      Gout is a build up of too much acid in the body. Therefore the body's pH level must be neutralized by adding alkaline to the body. This is best achieved by drinking the juice of a fresh lemon. Lemons are 20% acid, 80% alkaline. I just take the juice of a whole lemon, mix it with warm water in a tumbler and down it through a straw. Doing this first thing in the morning on a empty stomach also helps cleanse the kidneys which is linked to other gout related problems.

      2. Cherries
      Prior to taking lemon juice every day, if I felt a gout attack coming on, I would go and buy a kilo of cherries and gradually munch on them for a few hours. Cherries are a natural anti-inflammatory.

      3. Diet and Exercise

      While the first two points are excellent treatments, a healthy balanced diet and exercising 3 times a week for 45 minutes is core to preventing gout from occurring in the first place.

      Fad diets are rubbish. Dieting is pretty simple. It's pretty obvious what's healthy and not:

      Things that grow out the ground and that are natural = good. Things in colourful packets with loads of e-numbers and weird looking animations promoting them = bad.
      Moderation is the key.

      High Purine Foods that should be avoided:

      Beer, anchovies, organ meat (brains, kidney, liver, sweetbreads), game meats, gravies, yeast, meat extracts, sardines, herring, mackerel, scallops.

      Medium Purine Foods that may be eaten in Moderation:

      Fresh and saltwater fish, shellfish, eel, meat, poultry, meat soups and broth, asparagus , mushrooms, cauliflower, spinach, legumes, oatmeal, bran, wheat germ, whole-grain breads and cereals, eggs.

      Low Purine Foods eat as much as you like (within reason):

      Breads and cereals (low-fiber, white flour, or refined grain types), nuts, peanut butter. Vegetables not high in purines, soups - cream style or vegetable without meat extract, coffee, tea, fruit juices, soft drinks, gelatin, sugar, low fat cheeses.
      Foods That are reputed to help relieve the symptoms of gout.

      Cherry juice or strawberries are said to be helpful. Some chemicals contained in dark berries may help reduce the inflammation and lower the uric acid.
      Oily fish like salmon, or fatty acids in flax seed or olive oil or nuts may reduce inflammation too.
      replacing meat with tofu (from soybeans) instead of meat could also be helpful.
      Some have found relief with OPC3 antioxidant supplement.
      A balanced diet for gout sufferers includes foods that are high in complex carbohydrates, low in protein and low in fat.

      Gout is a disease caused by an excessive amount of uric acid. Now, uric acid is produced by the catabolism of nucleotides that usually exist in cells. So, any food that has cells (animal cells) can make gout worse, like meat, eggs,.... etc

      Foods that can lead to uric acid and gout are: anchovies, sardines, herring, mushrooms, gravies, organ meats, and other purine rich foods. Alcohol, especially beer, and coffee should also be avoided.

  5. QUESTION:
    How to detox body before starting a diet?
    Ive decided on saturday i am going to detox my body before starting loosing weight. I want to do this so my body can be fresh and get rid of all the bad stuff i have been eating recently. Obviously you need to drink alot of water but what else helps you to cleanse yourself from the inside? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I, for one, believe wholeheartedly in detox. But, only in the proper way otherwise it may make matters worse. Many folks assume that the body is quite capable of ridding itself of the plethora of "junk" it comes in contact with and come out smelling like roses - that's just plain ludicrous. Yes, the Supreme Being did create a wondrous marvel, our body, as we are designed with organs and systems (colon, liver, kidneys, bladder, lymph and skin) that work around the clock to rid the body of "toxins" (cellular waste, digestive waste, foreign proteins, heavy metals, etc.) that occur due to what we eat, drink, breathe, put on our skin and even from the stresses of our daily lives. Problems will and do arise when our organs/systems are overloaded with work, impeding proper function and elimination. Essentially, If our bodies could handle all of this, there would be no sickness and disease, point blank!

      When we feel below par or have symptoms of dis-ease, we are experiencing the effects of the build-up of toxins. This is another name for "acidosis" of the body. And, this is what needs to be addressed and reversed through a proper detox. Most people get it wrong when they think to "purge" the body of toxins with the many detox diets, programs or pills out in the marketplace that may do more harm than good. What needs to be done and is the real meaning of detox - Alkalize! This is the golden key that opens the door to health and vitality.

      Here's what happens: Acidosis causes obstructions in either one or more of the 3 energy flows of the body - blood, nerve and lymph. Looking at the lymphatic system (which is the main system that is stressed), lymph fluid should be free flowing towards the kidneys that should filter out the acids. With the accumulation of too many acids (acidosis), the lymph fluid becomes cationic - an environment where things start to get sticky and coagulate, allowing very little to be eliminated. Any good detox regimen should aid in removing the obstructions by changing the body fluids to alkaline. This is a major start down the road to repair and rebuilding of the body.

      Most detox diets/programs can be unhealthy and don't work only because they are not alkalizing. In many cases, they are designed to purge the body of so-called toxins. When purging is involved, what is happening is your body is being forced to function the way it should be functioning on its own. So, the solution to this inability to rid of something foreign in the body (obstructions) is to strengthen the cells so that they may perform this task of elimination optimally. Now, there are instances that a very "constipated" organ/system needs a little nudge and this nudge should be gotten through a natural means and for a short length of time, such as with the use of herbs - an alkalizing means…. not with chemicals that are acid-forming, making matters worse.

      Drinking tons of water to "flush" is not an advisable approach to detox. This is because, if you're acidic, your body will retain water as it tries to "put out the fire" of acidosis and bloating is experienced in most cases (and especially since most of the water people drink is acidic!) This approach holds no water (pun intended) since when you release your bladder, it is usually clear after drinking lots of water. The fact is, if your kidneys are filtering the lymph optimally, you would have cloudy and flakey pee.

      In essence, your diet should be your detox! A detox diet should include 80% (total calories) raw fruits or freshly-made fruit juices, 10 - 15% greens and 5 - 10% essential fatty acids. Meat, dairy products and even grain products hinder the natural detoxifying processes and should be totally avoided. They are acid-forming or congesting in the body. If your body is very acidic (sick and diseased) adding tissue-specific herbs or herbal formulas are a great plus. Even animals in the wild know which herbs to consume when they feel below par! By following this way of healthy eating, your body's elimination systems will be able to function optimally! Detoxing any other way sets you up for failure since it's most likely not an alkalizing protocol.

There are four major components that make up a successful anti-aging skin care routine: -A moisturizer that penetrates deeply into the skin will help reduce sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles.

  9. QUESTION:
    What are some home remedies to detox the body?
    I have been experiencing adbominal bloating and problems with my skin lately. I have taken laxatives and herbal teas and nothing seems to help the bloatness. I want to cleanse my body from the inside out.......and just don't know how to do it!

    • ANSWER:
      Detoxification

      Home Remedies

      The body tends to heal itself if given the right support. Fruit, vegetables and herbs are a gentle way to promote healing.

      Herbs used in Detoxification

      Dandelion
      Dandelion is held in high regard as a detoxifier. Dandelion stimulates the elimination of toxins from every cell in the body. It is often used in comprehensive treatments for the liver. Dandelion also increases bile production and stimulates its flow to the gallbladder. The polysaccharide insulin found in dandelion is said to have white blood cell and immune-boosting properties.

      Licorice Root
      Licorice Root is regarded as an important herb for treating kidney ailments and is also recommended for the liver and respiratory tract. Licorice Root's antioxidant, antiviral, and antibody-stimulating properties make it a liver protectant and detoxifier.

      Cascara Sagrada
      Cascara Sagrada supports healthy bowel function by acting as a mild laxative. This herb can also be helpful in the treatment of gallstones and liver ailments. It also increases secretions of the stomach, liver and pancreas and is a potent cleansing herb.

      Black Walnut Hulls
      Black Walnut Hulls are known to help remove parasites from the intestinal tract and facilitate the removal of toxic buildup and fatty materials.

      Milk Thistle
      Milk thistle is best known as a liver tonic. The active ingredient is silymarin, which is reputed to repair liver damage due to alcohol, drugs (over-the-counter, prescription, and illicit), hepatitis, and exposure to toxins. In Germany, physicians are so impressed with the liver-protecting effects of milk thistle that they routinely prescribe this herb to patients with liver disorders. Milk thistle also strengthens and protects the liver in otherwise healthy people.

      Fruit and vegetable juices assist in detoxification.
      Fruit and vegetable juices are the cleansers, energizers, builders, and regenerators of the human system. A combination of either fresh, raw fruit or vegetable juices will supply all the enzymes, vitamins, minerals, protein and fats critical to increased vitality! By adding live juices to one's diet as a daily routine, many have experienced a rejuvenating effect and healing of various illnesses such as cancer, leukemia, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, skin infections, liver disorders, alcoholism and smoking. Supplying the body with easily-absorbed nutrients, while the body is cleansing itself in the fasting state, avoids the dangers of total abstinence associated with water fasting. Be confident that this method is both safe and beneficial.

      Grapes: There are between 40 and 50 different varieties of grapes that come in a rainbow of greens, whites, reds and purples. Grapes fill the mouth with an explosion of delicious flavors. Grapes are an excellent source of potassium, which encourage an alkaline blood balance and also stimulate the kidneys and regulate heartbeat. The restorative power of grapes is phenomenal, cleansing the liver and removing the uric acid from the body. In France, many people go on a grape fast during harvest time. Studies have shown a lower incidence of cancer in the areas of France where this grape fast is practiced yearly.

      Asparagus: Available in early spring. It can be expensive due to the difficulty in cultivating. Its claim to fame is the amino acid aspargagine that is destroyed by cooking. Aspargagine is a strong diuretic, stimulating the kidneys. Asparagus is a great blood cleanser and excellent for healthy bowel maintenance.

      Parsley: Ancient civilizations have used parsley in medications and in poultices on wounds, boils, cysts and to draw the pus out of an infected cut. Parsley is one of the highest sources of life-giving chlorophyll, which acts like iron to oxidize the blood. Chlorophyll will help neutralize the strong odor of garlic, and is used in chewing gum to sweeten breath. It is a cleanser of the kidneys, liver, and urinary tract. Parsley is effective for upset stomachs by stimulating digestive enzymes. Excellent for the colon by encouraging the peristaltic wave in the intestines.

      Spinach: Never cook spinach. Oxalic acid is destroyed when heat transforms it into oxalic acid crystals that are harmful to the kidneys. It also binds to iron, making it unabsorbable.

      Sweet Potatoes
      Besides being a yummy source of beta-carotene, sweet potatoes and yams have an unusual health side effect: they can remove heavy metals from the body. In fact, doctors in the Soviet Union have prescribed a diet that's heavy on the spuds for factory workers continually exposed to toxic chemicals.

      Sweet potatoes contain something called "phytochelatins". This helps them bind to harmful substances like copper, cadmium, mercury and lead which most of us are exposed to on a regular basis from air pollution. The phytochelatins help pass these toxins out of the body."

      Cranberry Juice
      A powerful healing tonic filled with quinine, which changes to hippuric acid in the liver. Hippuric acid is able to assist in the removal of purines, uric acid, urea and toxic build-up in the prostate gland, testicles, kidneys and bladder.

  10. QUESTION:
    This is for people who have experience with Colon Cleansing?
    Has anyone done the colon cleansing? If so where did you get the products? How long does it take. Can the results really look like the pictures you see on the websites?

    • ANSWER:
      My husband and myself and a friend all did the colonix and detox program from www.Dr.Natura.com. My husband used it due to having fatty liver syndrome from his bad diet. He feels great and has more energy since using this product. I used the products mainly for the detox. I have been fighting really bad hives for over a year and was tired of always taking supplements for my problem. I began to think that maybe they were caused from an overload of pollutants and toxins accumulated over my lifetime. I am pleased to say that since using this program I have not had one single outbreak of hives! My friend used the product due to bad bowel problems. She would only "poop" about once a week. She now goes daily and feels so much better. We all used the products for 1 month and now I continue with the fiber, multivitamin, and detoxigreen supplement daily. I feel so much more energetic, no more hives, no more headaches and not so stressed out. The only one that had the "icky" stuff come out in the bowel movements was my friend - she swears by the fiber and uses it daily to maintain regularity. I can tell you that this company stands behind it's products. They have a money back guarantee and the best customer service department I have ever experienced. The product itself is very gentle and you are not running to the bathroom all day to explode. If you try their product and like it you can go back to their website a submit a testimonial and they will send you free products! Now that is pretty good! I have gotten a free bottle of the fiber, their multivitamin and a bottle of detoxigreens! I now have 2 other friends trying Dr. Natura. If I could, I swear, I would go to work for this company, that's how great I feel their product is. Go and check out their website even if you don't buy their stuff - it has alot of information. I hope this helps you - Good Luck!

  11. QUESTION:
    3 days from gastric bypass, on the liquid diet for 3 days, how much weight should I lose in these 3 day?
    I've been almost crash dieting, well eating really really healthy! I was told if I gain any weight back in the next 3 days my surgery is cancelled. I am starting the liquid diet. Should I worry that I ate a little more than usual today or should I not worry because I'll lose weight on the liquid diet? I will lose weight, right?

    • ANSWER:
      You will lose. Don't worry about it.

      You are on the liquid diet right now to shrink your fatty liver. So be very compliant right now because if your liver is too fatty and large, and the surgeon cannot work around it, he/she won't be able to do the surgery. You are also doing some sort of bowel cleanse the night before, right? That will drop a pound or two.

      MOST IMPORTANT! do NOT weigh yourself right now. It is crazy enough. If you are following your doctor's guidelines then you have nothing to worry about.

  12. QUESTION:
    What do I do when I have elevated liver enzymes?
    Do I need to worry? Is there a way to prevent this? I don't drink. I do take prescription meds.

    • ANSWER:
      you might have a 'fatty liver.' i'd suggest reading 'liver cleansing diet.' that book will teach you about which foods hurt your liver's function. I'd take it seriously. I had fatty liver in college, and went on the liver cleansing diet. I lost 20 pounds and my enzymes returned to normal levels.

      Like you, I didn't drink or take perscription medications. I'd advise you to use ibuprofen instead of tylenol - it's easier on your liver - and drink plenty of water.

      it isn't an easy or fun diet, but it might just save your liver! keep in touch, and email me with questions and updates.

      good luck

All of these factors need to be screened for and addressed before lasting relief can be achieved.

      Sulfa drugs, lithium, synthetic estrogen, and antihistamines can exacerbate hypothyroidism symptoms. In addition, if you are on thyroid medication, increase calcium supplementation to reduce the risk of bone loss.

      Low thyroid function may also be due to Hashimoto`s disease, a condition in which the body becomes allergic to its own thyroid gland and forms antibodies that attack it, thus lowering thyroid hormone output.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet, emphasizing foods that are naturally high in iodine such as fish, kelp, vegetables, and root vegetables (such as potatoes). Also, increase your daily consumption of foods rich in vitamin B complex, such as whole grains and raw nuts and seeds, and foods rich in vitamin A, such as dark green and yellow vegetables. But avoid foods that slow down production of thyroid hormone, such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, mustard greens, broccoli, turnips, kale, spinach, peaches, and pears.

      Herbs: Mild cases of hypothyroidism can be helped by herbal bitters such as gentian or mugwort, while constipation due to low thyroid function can be improved by yellowdock, butternut, or cascara sagrada. St. John`s wort can also be helpful.

      Homeopathy: Calc carb. in a dose of 1M once a day is very useful for treating hypothyroidism and improving overall thyroid function.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.

      Lifestyle: Regular aerobic exercise can play an important role in helping to regulate thyroid hormone production.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Organic thyroid glandular extracts can help restore normal thyroid function, but should only be used under the supervision of your physician. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A, vitamin B complex, essential fatty acids, iodine, kelp, calcium, magnesium, and zinc.

      Alternative Professional Care: If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating hypothyroidism include: Acupuncture, Biofeedback Training, Cell Therapy, Detoxification Therapy, Environmental Medicine, Homeopathy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Naturopathic Medicine, Osteopathy, Qigong, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga.

  14. QUESTION:
    What herbal supplement can I buy to help dissolve artery plaque?
    I have read about Ginger root, fish oils and all these suppliments to keep your arteries healthy but i want to know what herb helps destroy or dissolve artery plague?? I do eat right but i want an herbal aid also.. Thank you for your time... I hope its something i can buy at walmart maybe a Spring Valley product??? Any suggestions??

    • ANSWER:
      The best suggestion I can give you is this...............
      Go to a local health food store, NOT GNC, and look for male supplements. Those mostly with a yohimbe, Red clover, licorice root, and maybe some balancing agent such as wild yam or black cohosh. Red Clover tea 3 times a day is great to help cleanse the blood and keep things moving. The other herbs are mostly to help balance hormones to regulate blood and blood platelets as well as male stamina, sexual health, and muscle integrity.
      Adding additional garlic (fresh as possible not pill form) about 4 to 6 cloves a day in every thing you eat does wonders in lowering cholesterol and the build up of plaque in arterial walls and even in your mouth on your teeth. Adding some apple cider vinegar to your daily diet of 1 to 2 tbsp a day with a meal will help reduce acid reflux as well as cleanse your blood, kidneys, bladder, and reduce a fatty liver. I would recommend a liver detox once every 4 months for the first year and twice a year after that. This will get rid of parasites, fatty deposits, and other bacterial deposits that will improve the function of your liver which will help reduce plaque in your arteries so it won't build up. Prior, you will want to abstain from any alcohol this includes wine and beer or any firmented drinks or fruit juices for atleast 30 days before and after. Start using a soy based cooking oil or Extra Virgin Olive oil when cooking. Add flax seed to every meal. You can sprinkle it on top of what ever you are eating at each meal, but do not cook it. It is tasteless but has the beneficial live omega 3-6-9 that will help your heart.
      I know you were looking for just one supplement but there is not a "one do all" that will help. These that I have suggested are best and cost effective ways to help and tasty too. I feel that when we had done this for my brothers over the last 5 yrs that this has been the biggest help. My eldest brother was diagnosed with possible heart problems and when a blood test was taken it showed high bad cholesterol as well as fatty deposits and plaque formation in his blood. The first 8 months we did this his cholesterol was lower, very few traces of plaque, and showing no signs of possible blood clots or arterial damage. By the second year he was taken off plavix and one blood stabilizer. Now he is not on any meds for plaque or high blood pressure and the doctor said he was in the best shape he had been in years, internally as well as outside. He had lost almost 25 lbs in the first 8 months and was regaining much of his muscle definition back. The color was back in his cheeks and he had more energy than he had had in the past 10 yrs. He is currently 55 yrs old. I did as much research I could about the alternatives and that is what he has used for many years and still to this day.
      I hope this will help you too.
      Live long and happy.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure you've heard about this amazing fruit called the acai berry with "mystical" weight loss qualities that help you lose weight fast, the natural way.

      However, combined with proper diet and exercise, the acai berry can be an excellent weight loss aid. Its natural combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, phytosterols, and amino acids work together to help your body function better, process food easier, and burn fat more efficiently. Let’s break down how the acai berry helps people reach their perfect weight…

      The acai berry contains Omega fatty acids – the same medically recommended fats found in fish oil, olive oil and flaxseed. These fatty acids can’t be produced by the body, and must be obtained from the food we eat. Instead of being stored as fat, they are used by the liver to “kick-start” the metabolism. If you’re a slow starter when it comes to losing weight, or if you’ve reached the frustrating “plateau” phase of weight loss, adding some form of acai to your diet might be just the ticket to get over the hump.

      The acai berry contains a generous amount of fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods.

      As mentioned above, the acai berry has a generous amount of fiber. High fiber foods like acai help you to feel fuller faster and cut down on nagging cravings, needless snacking, and late night trips to the refrigerator.

      Final Word on Acai Berry & Weight Loss

      Although it’s not the miracle weight loss solution that some claim, the acai berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain ingredients that aid in weight loss. Not only does it provide a valuable boost to the metabolism, it also suppresses appetite, helps build muscle, and gives a much-needed shot of energy and stamina for those fat blasting workouts.

      Lettuce aids better metabolism and flushing of toxins.

      Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C that aid the metabolism and release of water from the kidney to flush out waste.

      Other than the other excellent properties that Garlic possesses, it is a natural diuretic food that aids breakage of fat. Horseradish, raw onions and radish speed up your metabolism.

  18. QUESTION:
    How to control and reduce the psoriasis for a baby and adult?
    My husband is suffering from Psoriasis since he was born.... recently my new born baby is also suspected to have this desease, I come to know that this is a desease connected with gene... I really do not know how to help them....

    • ANSWER:
      Hi ANgee

      Here are some ideas on how to heal the issue.

      Cause
      Psoriasis is metabolic in nature and can be triggered by environmental or stressful conditions, poor diet, flu-like conditions, the administration of penicillin, and nutritional deficiencies. Patients with psoriasis are also a higher risk of rheumatoid diseases.

      Psoriasis can be caused by food allergies, essential fatty acid deficiencies, low digestive enzyme and hydrochloric acid levels, vitamin B complex deficiencies, emotional stress, illness, drugs (such as beta-blockers, lithium, and chloroquine), poison ivy or oak, skin damage, and several infections, bacterial or viral in origin.

      ------------------------------...

      Natural Cures

      Aromatherapy: The following essential oils are recommended: bergamot (to help heal skin plaques), lavender (to reduce excessive itching), melissa (for irritated skin), jasmine (for dry sensitive skin), geranium (for dry irritating skin), and sandalwood mysore (for dehydrated, inflamed, and sensitive skin).

      Cleansing: For long term health a colon and liver cleanse needs to be done.

      Diet: Screen for and eliminate all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Eat a varied diet of organic, whole foods, rotating foods as much as possible. Eliminate wheat and wheat products for 1-3 months. Consume seafood high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as wild salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, and each day, on a rotating basis, take one tablespoon of olive or flaxseed oil, and be sure to drink plenty of pure, filtered water. Organic beef, venison, poultry, garlic, onions, parsley, organic plain yogurt, and sauerkraut are also recommended.

      Flower Essences: Rescue Remedy Cream® applied topically can soothe symptoms.

      Herbs: Combine equal parts of burdock, sarsaparilla, and cleavers tinctures and take one teaspoon three times a day. Silymarin (milk thistle) is also helpful for psoriasis due to its positive effects on liver function.

      Homeopathy: Useful homeopathic remedies include Psorinum, Sulfur, Graphites, Cuprum met., and Arsen alb.

      Juice Therapy: The following juice combinations can be helpful: apple and carrot; beet, cucumber, and grape; and beet, carrot, burdock, yellowdock and garlic.

      Lifestyle: Mild cases of psoriasis may be helped by daily exposure to sunlight. Frequent exercise is also recommended.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can be helpful: evening primrose oil, omega-3 essential fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin B Complex, vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, vitamin C with bioflavonoids, folic acid, lecithin, zinc, and a multimineral supplement. Taking hydrochloric acid (HCL) with each meal can also be of use.

      In Europe fumaric acid treatment in the form of fumaric acid tablets, ointment, lotion, and scalp lotions is widely used to reverse symptoms of psoriasis

      Topical Treatment: Apply seawater to the affected skin several times daily. Linseed or avocado oil, aloe vera gel, and/or capsaicin cream applied topically can reduce the scaling, thickness, redness, and itching.

      Best of health to you

  19. QUESTION:
    What are the beneffits of Coconut oil?
    I read somewhere that it is very good for you & might also make you lose weight. Was wondering if anyone knew any benefits from use of coconut oil?

    • ANSWER:
      Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
      Coconut oil is different from other oils commonly used in America. Most American oils are made from seeds like soybeans, canola (rapeseeds), almonds, sesame seeds, safflower seeds, sunflower seeds, etc. These seed oils are predominately made of triglycerides containing long chain fatty acids. To be digested, these long chain fatty acids need to be emulsified by bile salts. Bile salts are produced by the liver, stored in the gall bladder and dumped into the small intestine as needed. They are the emulsifying agents that draw the fats into the aqueous food solutions of the intestinal tract where lipase, a digestive enzyme, can work on them. Next, the long chain fatty acids are broken down into carbon chains made of 14 carbon atoms. This is the standard “energy storage unit” for the body. We call it body fat. All excess carbohydrates in the diet are also converted into these 14 carbon chain triglycerides. They are bound to HDL and LDL carriers in the bloodstream and then transported into storage.

      Since coconut oil contains mostly 8,10,and 12 carbon chain triglycerides (medium chain triglycerides), instead of being digested and traveling in the blood stream as explained above, these medium chain fatty acids are absorbed into the portal vein and transported directly into the liver without requiring lipase or bile salts for digestion. In the liver, these medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) support the immune system and help to cleanse the body of pathogens, toxins, etc. These supportive actions continue as the MCTs travel through the lymphatic system to the rest of the body.

      Since the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil do not travel in the blood stream they have never been shown to contribute to heart disease, provided the oil has not been hydrogenated. People without gall bladders or who cannot digest food well, especially people who cannot digest fats (such as people with cystic fibrosis) can and will thrive on coconut oil. Doctors doing research have known for a long time that the elderly, invalids and the very young thrive on formulas that contain coconut oil. Products like baby formula and Ensure use to be made with coconut oil. Sadly, even these items have fallen victim to the propaganda we have received over the last 50 years.

      As the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil travel throughout the body they are actually anti microbial compounds. For example, Lauric acid, which makes up 48-57% of coconut oil, becomes 2 mono-lauren in the gut. 2-mono-lauren dissolves the lipid envelope that protects most pathogenic bacteria and viruses. It also attacks pathogenic yeast and parasites. Lauric acid contained in a human mother's breast milk is one of the major reasons nursing infants have a high resistance to getting sick. Lauric acid in the diet will have the same effect, regardless of age. Its anti microbial properties have been helping people for thousands of years.

      Coconut oil, because it is smaller than the standard storage unit, is burned for energy rather than stored. This tends to increase the bodies metabolism. People with under-active thyroid glands often discover their basal temperature becomes normal from coconut oil use, especially when combined with a health diet and life-style.. Elderly Americans and many others with low energy often notice they have energy again and a sense of well-being they did not realize they had lost. And, unlike other energy the cell receives, medium chain fatty acids do not require insulin. Most people in the U.S. have some degree of insulin resistance. Many people, as they age, even though they are eating, do not feel they are getting energy from their food. The reason for many people is insulin resistance. The good news is that if a person has coconut oil or coconut products in their diet, the fats will be used as energy and that energy is not dependent on the insulin system working. Therefore, diabetics can get good energy into their cells and people who take naps, or think they need naps in the middle of the afternoon, have energy again. Low Carb dieters, as well, can eat their low carbohydrate meals, but have the energy they would otherwise have received from carbohydrates.

      Lastly, on the skin, the medium chain fatty acids in the coconut oil are identical to the medium chain fatty acids found in sebum. Normal flora that lives on our skin and keeps it healthy will actually live on the glycerol unit of the triglycerides, creating free fatty acids identical to those found in sebum. This allows the skin to have a slightly acidic pH ideal for keeping pathogens away and keeping the skin healthy. For people with dandruff or red spots on their scalp, you just douse the scalp with coconut oil and leave it for about 20 minutes. Then shampoo. You will need to shampoo at least twice. This works better than tea tree oil shampoo from the health food store or anything else you have probably tried. If you have red spots on your skin try it there as well. If you need a little more oomph, add a drop or two of lemon or lavender essential oil to the coconut oil. Many people get out of the shower and reach for their little pot of coconut oil. They just dab it on and spread it all over, very lightly. A number of customers have discovered that if they do this they eventually do not have to use deodorant.
      The highest quality coconut oil, in our opinion is oil that is raw, with a very low moisture content, a low free fatty acid content, and therefore a long shelf-life. The oil is best when packaged in glass as coconut oil can dissolve and absorb plasticizers. Below are companies who carry a coconut oil that fits this criteria:

      Wilderness Family Naturals
      A brand called Fresh Shores that is very good on Dr. Mercola's website
      Jigsaw Health
      Radiant Life Catalog
      Power Hour

      Here are some detox drinks for you, also pee a lot.

      If you are looking to revive yourself from within while increasing your energy level and your overall well-being, a body detox may be in order. Detoxification is the process of eliminating toxic substances from your body. Before beginning any detox diet, it is always good to check with your doctor, especially if there are any health concerns.
      In their book 7-Day Detox Miracle, Sara Faye; Stephen Barrie, N.D.; and Peter Bennett, N.D., explain that detoxing with a whole body cleanse can enhance the body’s systems. According to the authors, detox drink recipes can assist in ridding your body of toxins and bringing it back into healthy balance.
      Lemonade cleanse

      Lemon consists of ascorbic acid, assisting in the cleansing process. Known also as the staple beverage of Stanley Burroughs' Master Cleanse, this detox drink is easy to make. Mix 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup and one-tenth teaspoon of cayenne pepper in 8 ounces of purified water. Proponents of the Master Cleanse recommend you drink 6-8 glasses of this lemonade drink and eat nothing each day of your cleanse. Despite its popularity, nutritionists warn against the lack of essential nutrients in this drink.
      Green detox drink

      This vegetable detox drink is made up primarily of green vegetables, providing an effective natural body cleanse of the digestive system.
      In her book The Raw Food Detox Diet: The Five-Step Plan for Vibrant Health and Maximum Weight Loss, certified clinical nutritionist Natalia Rose discusses the importance of vegetables at length. For this detox drink, you will need:
      3 carrots
      3 kale leaves
      2 celery stalks
      2 beets
      1 turnip
      ½ bunch of spinach
      ½ cabbage
      ½ bunch of parsley
      ½ onion
      2 garlic cloves
      Mix all ingredients with water and puree in a blender.
      Detox dandelion tea

      According to classical homeopathic practitioner Sonya McLeod, B.A., D.C.H., dandelions are a great source of vitamin A, potassium, iron and calcium. According to McLeod, dandelion detox tea is a diuretic that will eliminate bodily toxins through your liver and kidneys. She recommends brewing 6 tablespoons of 1-year-old dried dandelion root and 12 tablespoons of fresh dandelion leaves in 4 cups of purified, boiling water. Other recipes call for simply adding 2 teaspoons of crushed dandelion leaves to a cup of boiling water and allowing it to brew for about 10 minutes.
      Fresh cranberry juice

      According to Mayo Clinic, there is some evidence to suggest that drinking cranberry juice may help prevent urinary tract infections and ulcers in healthy individuals. Cranberry juice also contains vitamin C, manganese and antioxidants. Though not advocated by any authoritative body, cranberry juice has become a popular detox drink, and according to Mayo Clinic, two 16-oz. glasses of full-strength juice can be safely consumed on a daily basis by healthy adults. To make this detox drink, dilute one part cranberry juice in four parts water. Then, add 1 tablespoon each of apple pectin and psyllium fiber to stimulate gentle intestinal elimination.
      Fruit detox drink

      Because fruit is high in fiber and packed with essential vitamins and minerals, it is a wonderful natural detox for the body. This recipe incorporates fruit, along with flax oil and lecithin, to provide essential fatty acids while you detox. In your blender, add:
      8 oz. of orange juice
      4 oz. of pure water
      ½ cup banana strawberries or yogurt
      ½-inch slice of ginger
      1 small garlic clove
      1 tablespoon flax oil
      1 tablespoon lecithin granules
      1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice if desired
      1 tablespoon of protein powder

  21. QUESTION:
    Could i enjoy a soda every now and then without worrying about weight gain?
    I never really drink soda pop. Last time i drank one was maybe 3 months ago when i drank a can of mountain dew. If i keep the soda amount i consume to the lowest, will it hurt anything if i drink one every now and then? Maybe like one can every couple weeks or so? Ive got into weight lifting and trying not to gain alot of body fat and I'm sure pop can pack it on you. Can I have a can of my favorite soda every so often without gaining?

    • ANSWER:
      You will always gain weight drinking any soda, but you will lose it if you don't drink it often. The real killer is high fructose corn syrup. It is NOT sugar, does NOT metabolize like sugar, and does cause weight gain. The liver processes alcohol & high fructose corn syrup the same way, but alcohol is also metabolized by the brain, but HFCS does NOT. Both cause "Fatty liver" to develop and this clogs the liver, making it insufficient. Since 3 pints of blood are cleansed by the liver each minute, making the liver insufficient is very destructive to the body. NO ONE should drink sodas or use ANY product with HFCS in it. They put HFCS in baby formulas! ! ! No wonder 25% of infants below 4 years old are now OBESE in America. Things like ketchup contains it, bread you buy in stores contains it, and fruit drinks, etc. all contain that junk. It's cheaper than sugar and is sweeter, so manufacturers love the profit from using it. The biggest problem I see is that TAX PAYERS like you and me provide the government with money to pay farmers to grow corn so the manufacturers using that trash can make products cheaper.

      There is NO regard for your health. Those advertisements on T.V. about HFCS being just like sugar are ridiculous, misleading, false, and those people need to be called to task about that. This is just another repeat of cigarette manufacturers telling everyone that cigarettes were good for you and helped your digestion! ! !

      Also, those diet drinks are just as bad. The artificial sweeteners are death in a container waiting for you to put it into your body to do it's damage. 92 side effects of the genetically engineered aspartame that the FDA has ignored for years because they are promoting the agenda to allow GMO foods on the market.

      As an alternative, there is kombucha that is fermented Chinese tea that has fizz, tastes great and is actually good for you. There are other sodas you can buy at the health food store, but be careful to make sure no genetically engineered ingredients are in them.

      good luck to you

  22. QUESTION:
    With acne treatment sets, are you supposed to wash your face between each step?
    Like, with Clean & Clear;
    do you wash your face then use the cleanser, then wash your face again, then use the moisturizer, then wash your face again and use the spot treatment?

    Or just wash your face 'n use the stuff in a row?

    I find it hard to believe the rest will work if your just piling creams on your face.

    • ANSWER:
      lol no you DO NOT wash your face once you cleanse it. Use the cleanser, then wait five minutes, then apply the spot treatment then wait another five minutes then apply moisturizer. Be very gentle when you touch you face and apply this products. There are three causes of acne. Imbalance hormones, toxic colon(including diet issues), and a toxic congested liver(for thoose with cystic acne). To balance hormones you might want to add essential fatty acids also known as EFAs. To treat a toxic colon you will need to an internal cleansing. I have tried diffrent ones and the best one i found was "The Colon Cleansing Kit" from blessedherbs.com. To treat a toxic congested liver(for thoose with cystic), you will have to do a Parasite cleanse, and then you might want to do a liver cleansing. Also foods you will need to avoid :Wheat,monosodium glutamate(MSG),Aspartame, Dairy products( milk, skim milk,whey protein, ice cream, cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt, whipped cream,cheese,ice cream etc. oh and butter is ok). Avoid sugar(brown sugar, maple syrup,high fructose corn syrup, etc.). Avoid potatoes(not including sweet potatoes or yams). Avoid refined carbohydrated(white flour, cookies, cakes, pizza, crackers,chips,pancakes,grits,spaghetti,noodles,enriched flour,white rice, white bread, macaroni,candy, etc. Avoid shellfish(shrimp, oysters,crab,lobster,etc. Avoid soda,fruit juice(high in concentreated sugars),dried fruits(figs,raisins,dates),fried foods and deep fried foods, roasted nuts,preservatives,alcohol(one you drink), and last but not least hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. It has been said that food had nothing to do with acne. Remember that acne product companies dont want you to cure your acne but control it with drugs to make MONEY.

  23. QUESTION:
    Should an overweight person lose weight before doing ab workouts? Or should you do them during the process?
    I'm about 30lbs overweight, should I focus on losing weight before I start focusing on my abs?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure you've heard about this amazing fruit called the acai berry with "mystical" weight loss qualities that help you lose weight fast, the natural way.

      However, combined with proper diet and exercise, the acai berry can be an excellent weight loss aid. Its natural combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, phytosterols, and amino acids work together to help your body function better, process food easier, and burn fat more efficiently. Let’s break down how the acai berry helps people reach their perfect weight…

      The acai berry contains Omega fatty acids – the same medically recommended fats found in fish oil, olive oil and flaxseed. These fatty acids can’t be produced by the body, and must be obtained from the food we eat. Instead of being stored as fat, they are used by the liver to “kick-start” the metabolism. If you’re a slow starter when it comes to losing weight, or if you’ve reached the frustrating “plateau” phase of weight loss, adding some form of acai to your diet might be just the ticket to get over the hump.

      The acai berry contains a generous amount of fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods.

      As mentioned above, the acai berry has a generous amount of fiber. High fiber foods like acai help you to feel fuller faster and cut down on nagging cravings, needless snacking, and late night trips to the refrigerator.

      Final Word on Acai Berry & Weight Loss

      Although it’s not the miracle weight loss solution that some claim, the acai berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain ingredients that aid in weight loss. Not only does it provide a valuable boost to the metabolism, it also suppresses appetite, helps build muscle, and gives a much-needed shot of energy and stamina for those fat blasting workouts.

  24. QUESTION:
    Can taking a Vitamin A supplement daily help improve skin?
    I had severe acne and i've been on minocycline for two years, doxycyline for another and have been using topical treatments as well [face washes and tazorac]. I still have break outs, moderate, and i want to try everything i can before resorting to acutane. Will vitamin A improve my skin?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it can, not by itself but with a healthy diet(that already includes all the vitamins/minerals that you need) and there are other vitamins that can help too. You should take fish liver oil capsules for vitamin A(it should say retinol vitamin A under the ingredients). You should eat a lot of vegetables, essential fatty acids, protein, and drink lot of water.
      I've just recently changed my diet and stopped eating all junk food and artificial sugars.....and I'm seeing improvements in my skin and my acne is slowly disappearing and the acne scars are actually fading pretty quickly.
      A healthy diet is really important, because supplements just provide a little extra support on their own they don't do much.....these are the supplements I'm taking, maybe they can help you:
      Calcium and Magnesium(in equal amounts)
      Vitamin E (dry form)
      Shark liver oil (for the 10,000 IU Vitamin A)
      Carlson Cod Liver Oil
      Vitamin C
      Nutritional Yeast Flakes (for the vitamin B-complex)

      Also maybe you have a food sensitivity: you can try keeping a food log to see if something breaks you out. Also some people get acne from dairy foods, gluten, or sugar.....so pay attention to when you break out the most.
      If you have hormonal acne then the best way to manage that is with a healthy diet and exercise.

      Before trying natural treatments for acne I was on Solodyn for 4 months only....and the antibiotic really messed me up and made my acne so much more resistant to other treatment, that I would really discourage anyone from going on antibiotics or accutane. And I keep reading online how people stay on antibiotics for years and years destroying their immune systems....and if they get off it for a while they get the acne back. Antibiotics don't treat the root of whatever problem you have that is causing this acne and by taking all these drugs you might get some serious health problems. So, if your acne is a big problem for you and you sincerely want to cure it, you wouldn't mind completely altering your diet and becoming more healthy. However, if you do decide to go back on antibiotics or accutane you should definitely take a probiotic and drink kefir/eat yogurt daily to avoid getting candida. Since, you've been on minocycline for 2 years it might take you a little longer to get your skin completely clear....but don't give up.
      ~you might want to try NuCelle Mandelic Serum 15% 2 fl oz (I think you can only purchase it online....it is around with shipping). It helps fade my scars, take away the redness, and makes the pimples heal a little faster.(it does make you skin peel a bit).
      ~also you might as well try the oil cleansing method(it won't clear up severe acne problems, but it will help. Also don't do the serum and the oil method at the same time, try one thing for a month then switch to another option if one doesn't help)
      http://www.acne.org/messageboard/OIL-CLEANSING-METHOD-Hi-t141871.html

      I found a lot of great information on acne.org
      here is a pretty great post from that website, and I'm following this diet/routine right now: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Diet-isn-t-related-acne-t222897.html&st=200

      and here is another website full of natural treatments that have helped people: http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/acne.html

  25. QUESTION:
    What are some good foods and drinks to help boost one's immune system?
    And what exactly is in those foods and drinks that make them so good for the immune system?

    • ANSWER:
      I applaud you in your interest in strengthening your immune system with food. As you may know, it is a challenge today to find foods that are mineral rich without added chemicals that are toxic.
      The good news is it is possible to find healthy foods that are rich in vitamins, mineral, photonutrients, ect. for you body.

      A place to start is looking for raw and organically grown fruits, vegetables, and meats.

      Here is a sampling.
      Vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, kale, collard greens, and spinach are the great source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber,

      Fruits (like blueberries, bananas , acai,and mangoes.) are good sources of antioxidants and phytonutrients

      Proteins containing amino acids aids in the growth and repair of your immune system. Some protein sources can be chlorella , eggs, organic meat and poultry, fish especially those high in Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, trout and tuna.

      Medicinal Mushrooms such as Shiitake, Reishi, Maitake, and Coriolus Versicolor (turkey tail) are wonderful for building your immune system up.

      Drinks like Wheatgrass, Aloe vera juice, green tea, and white teas are excellent drink choices to boost your immune system. Holy tea is my favorite, since it also does a great job in cleansing my body and maintaining a healthy weight.

      Whole grains like brown rice, millet, buckwheat, oats, and barley are also a valuable source of the vitamins, minerals and fiber that are an essential part of keeping the immune system healthy. Fiber helps cleanse the colon of toxins and helps prevent intestinal infections.

      It is also important to avoid "bad" foods ("unprocessed" and "unrefined") that will weaken your immune system.

      Here is some suggestions:
      Sugar contains no nutrients. Excessive sugar intake can deplete your body of several vitamins and minerals. Sugar impairs the ability of white blood cells to sweep up and kill bacteria. It also robs the body of key nutrients such as zinc that is vital for the immune function. Sugars food to avoid include soda pop, candy, many cereals, and ice cream.

      Coffee
      Caffeine is a diuretic that contributes to the body's loss of important nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. The acid in coffee eats away the villi of the small intestine, reducing their effectiveness in supporting nutrient assimilation.

      Alcohol (when consumed in excess), is a poison to every system of your body. It depresses the nervous system, inhibits the bone marrow's ability to regenerate blood cells, is toxic to the liver, depletes B-vitamins, and is dehydrating.

      Raw foods such as clams, oysters, sushi, very rare meats, and undercooked eggs contain infectious bacteria and intestinal parasites.

      With the advent of pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilizer and green harvesting, our fruits and vegetables lack vital nutrients. Today, it is necessary that our diet will need supplements to the food for the immune system.

  27. QUESTION:
    What is the fastest way to lose weight?
    i weigh about 260 pounds and i want to lose as much weight as possible what can i do. help me out

    • ANSWER:
      Hi..

      There are several ways on how you can lose weight but it does time time and effort.

      For many people weight loss is the reason that they initially try a colon cleanser and Bowtrol Colon Cleanser will certainly help you do that, but there are many other benefits that often outweigh even the weight loss. Some of these benefits include:

      Increased Energy
      Less Gas
      Less Water Retention
      Better Digestion
      No More Constipation

      Most of us don't think much about how our bowels affect our health, however, using an all natural herbal colon cleanser like Bowtrol Colon Cleanser will produce these benefits and more. This is because the bowel is so important to our health that cleansing it will help detoxify the entire body.

      Because of the amount of processed foods we consume, and the pollution and amount of toxic components around us, more and more toxins are deposited in our bodies. Sometimes even drugs and medications that are supposed to heal us leave residues in our bodies, affecting our kidneys and livers. This toxic overload results in constipation, stress, low energy, lack of motivation, strong food cravings, and other physical problems. Even those who live healthy lives, eating a well-balanced diet and exercising can have toxin overload over time.

      Cleansing of the colon with a natural colon cleanser such as Bowtrol will in most cases control or completely eliminate irritable bowel syndrome. The natural herbs in Bowtrol Colon Cleanser assist the body in breaking up the fecal matter and eliminating it. This in turn stops the proliferation of the bad bacteria and helps the body begin rebuilding the good intestinal flora that we all need for proper digestion. The colon quickly returns to normal health which again effects the whole body, but this time for the better - regular bowel movements, increased energy, and almost always weight loss.

      Most people find that as use Bowtrol and their health improves, they no longer have the cravings for sugary or fatty foods and so their diet improves which again leads to better health.

    • ANSWER:
      if you really want to lose wight and fat then you should remember and do this:

      EVERYDAY RUN (WALK) + L-Carnitine + TAKE LESS CALORIES + LIPO-6 = 100% SUCCESS

      1) if you dint have then buy scales!!! that is the first thing to do!!

      2) run every 2 days for at least ~30 minutes or/and walk every day at least 5 km!

      3) L-Carnitine!!!

      L-Carnitine is a nutrient that helps the body turn fat into energy. It is produced by the body in the liver and kidneys and stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. Usually, the body can make all the carnitine it needs. Some people, however, may be deficient in carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough carnitine or transport it into tissues so it can be used. Some other conditions, such as angina or intermittent claudication, can also cause insufficient carnitine in the body, as can some medications.L-Carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. It is available in several different forms including propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine. Propionyl-L-carnitine, through its enhancement of metabolism has been proven to prevent ischemia-induced heart dysfunction, and acetyl-L-carnitine has been suggested to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. L-carnitine is found naturally in avocados, breast milk, dairy products, red meats (namely lamb and beef), and tempeh (fermented soybean product).

      L-carnitine should be taken one hour before you will exercise! (Also you can take L-carnitine with meals or 1 to 1-1/2 hours after meals!)

      L-Carnitine boosts energy by stimulating the body's burning of tryglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion. During exercise, the body will burn fat at a rate of 75-80% of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. L-carnitine
      allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable energy source.

      FAT + OXYGEN + L-CARNITINE = ENERGY

      5) you MUST change your diet!! start to use products with less fat, less carbohydrates! start count your calories! do not eat more than ~2000 per day and if you feel that you can reduce this number then do it!

      because if you will use L-Carnitine - you will get calories from your body fat too!! so better is to eat 2kg fruits then 1 cheeseburger...
      and drink more and more water!! REMEMBER - NO rice, NO pasta, NO pork, NO mayonnaise, NO sweets, NO candies, NO alcohol!!!!!
      MORE fruits, vegetables!!!

      6) also you should use some fat-burner! I had tried many of them but only one worked for me as fast as I wanted to! it was Lipo-6! I lost ~80 pounds in 3 months! No starvation!! only LESS CALORIES + Lipo-6 + L-Carnitine + EVERYDAY RUN (WALK) = SUCCESS!!!

      I do not know if any store carry Lipo-6 but I do know that you should purchase it directly from the manufacturer and read more about the product here http://www.healthbuy.com/product/overview/lipo6_weight_loss/?aid=749165

      It worked for me and my wife!

      and this method is working for my friends too!!

      just try it and I guarantee you 100% that you will lose wight!!!

      good luck!!!

  29. QUESTION:
    what happens if a diabetic doesn't stick to their diet and drinks alcohol?
    I am not a diabetic however my blood sugars were high a few years ago and I was prescribed Metformin but I havent been taking it I simply just refuse to take it and that's it could that mean I have diabetes already? what happens if a diabetic is unable to give themselves shots or misses a day of insulin?

    • ANSWER:
      Diabetes is not caused by low blood sugar, but low blood sugar is a result. Controlling the blood sugar is a temporary fix at best and if you are taking drugs, like metaformin, you are only controlling the blood sugar and will continue having diabetes until you solve the root cause.

      Taking insulin for diabetes type 2 that is an "insulin resistant" disease just exacerbates the problem and makes your insulin receptor sites on your cells even more resistance. It also just shows how little doctors know about diabetes. In fact, doctors, drug companies, pharmacies, all tell you diabetes is NOT curable. Nothing is further from the truth and just further shows their ignorance.

      If you drink alcohol, you are creating more hardened bile in your liver and creating more fatty liver condition. This impairs the ability of the liver to do it's job and reduces it's ability to cleanse the blood. Having diabetes is proof the person is sick and all the side effects that happen as a result of the diabetes is further destruction of the body.

      It is now possible to be off all medications, including insulin, and have a stable blood sugar in a normal range within 4 weeks. It requires changing what you eat and then going on a long term stable diet to prevent the diabetes from returning.

      good luck to you

  30. QUESTION:
    How can I make my liver as healthy as possible?
    I need to know everything I can do.

    • ANSWER:
      Number One - You've got to lose weight. Fatty liver is one of the biggest health problems we have in this country.
      Makes you liver work harder.
      Healthy diet.
      The fresher and less processed food is, the more nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants it contains.
      The more processed a food is, the poorer the quality and the more chemical additives.
      Start reading labels. If you can't pronounce it or don't know what it is, don't put it in your body.
      Drink lots of water, some iced green tea with a shot of lemon or orange juice in it. Cut back on the booze and coffee.
      Take a basic multivitamin plus iron being a woman.
      Get some exercise. Even a 30 minute brisk walk will do wonders.
      The body naturally detoxifies itself through liver, kidneys, respiration, and respiration.
      There is no magic liver cleanse, detox pills, or diets.
      Good luck.

  32. QUESTION:
    How often do I do a Gall Bladder Cleansing?
    When using Olive-Oil and Lemon-Juice for the removeal of the Gall Stones.

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, gall bladder removal can be avoided all together if people would pay attention to how they eat.

      Secondly, in answer to your question: http://www.relfe.com/gall_stone_cleanse.html Go by this.

      As far as how people eat, there was the Adkins Diet craze and more people had their gall bladder removed because of it than any other time in our history.

      Why?

      Because, they didn't read the book! It clearly stated to eat fruits and vegetables, yet people mainly ate way too much meat. Thus, gall bladder infections from an acidic environment that promotes infections in the gall bladder.

      If you eat a balanced diet and stay away from junk and saturated fats, your gall bladder will function properly.

      The liver is what benefits from lemon juice dash of sea salt and plain water. Olive oil is a fatty acid and promotes a bowell movement. Fiber also takes stress off of the liver. I've actuallly seen Hep C patients viral loads go down by doing these things.

      My friends father was the first bioanalyst in the State of California. The kids grew up with beakers and centrifuges. They became pharmaceutical reps and nurse practitioners. They were taught to cleanse the liver and gall bladder with what you are talking about.

      I think from the nay sayers its the mechanism by which this works that is forgotten knowledge. They know not what they say when they say its not necessary, and yes... It may not be necessary for some, but with our modern refined diets, it has become more of a need once in a while and if the method can be a preventative, then so be it.

      Depending on the circumstances, a food combining vegan who gets constant fiber in the diet doesn't necessarily need the same kind of cleansing as someone who eats fried fatty foods with a distended colon problem.

      Everyone is different, yet everyone deserves whole foods and good nutrition to strengthen the immune system, to have a properly functioning digestive system and endocrine system.

      The entire idea is to prevent oneself from falling off the cliff in the first place and if a harmless cleanse with a non toxic home remedy helps, so what!

      I suggest that if you have gall stones and you have proof in you rmedical charts that you have gall stones, do the cleanse and go back and get another medical assesment and then let us all know if your gall stones have reduced in number or are gone.

  37. QUESTION:
    How to get clearer skin? Been trying to eat healthy?
    I've been trying to eat healthy to get clear skin. I keep junk food(chocolate and ice cream particularly)at a minimum level. I've been drinking lots of water and exercising as well. If I keep on doing this, how long will it really take to get rid of my pimples and get clear skin? Just curious to know! Also what other food should I eat that are really good to get rid of pimples?ALSO eye bags! I have horrible eye bags(eye circles)and I don't know how to get rid of them!

    • ANSWER:
      Your diet (food & liquid), plus your lifestyle definitely plays a role in the health of your skin! I strongly recommend reading the book, The Clear Skin Diet by Alan C. Logan and Valori Treloar! This book has detailed information on what to eat & not to eat to help reduce or prevent your acne & it explains the hormones involved in acne & how to control them with food! In the meantime, here are a few tips to get you started:

      WATER: Drinking approx. 64 oz of pure water everyday improves skin quality, flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to skin! You can also include 100% Fruit Juice as part of your daily total.

      OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS (oily fish, sardines, salmon, fish oil supplement) reduces acne chemicals, helps acne inflammation. Be careful about the mercury & toxins found in fish! Buy high quality fish & supplements!

      VITAMIN C (oranges, lemons, limes) improves skin quality, produces collagen (essential skin protein), reduces wrinkles, helps wounds heal. Every morning start your day with one glass of lemon water. Drink lemon water on an empty stomach, one hour before you eat breakfast to make this remedy work effectively. Squeeze one lemon & some of the pulp into a glass of lukewarm water. You can add a little honey to cut down the tartness. Lemon water helps clear acne, cleanses the liver, flushes out toxins. The acid in lemons can damage tooth enamel, so brush your teeth immediately after drinking this!

      VITAMIN A (carrots, squash, spinach) keeps skin healthy, reduces sebum/oil production, helps skin cells to shed normal, reduces the size of large skin pores. Overdosing on Vitamin A is toxic & dangerous! Eating to much beta-carotene will turn your skin slightly orange! Spinach should not be eaten every day because it is high in oxalates!

      ZINC (oyster, beans, wholegrain cereals) helps regulate hormones, improves skin health, helps acne inflammation. Overdosing on zinc is dangerous!

      ANTHOCYANINS (purple grapes, blueberries, pomegranates, acai, dark cherries) promotes healthy skin, maintains blood flow to the skin, helps acne inflammation. Try Welch's 100% Purple Grape Juice or Pom 100% Pomegranate Juice.

      LYCOPENE (fresh tomato or tomato products) reduces acne hormones. Try Low Sodium Campbell's Tomato Juice or Low Sodium V8 Juice.

      GREEN TEA (freshly brewed) reduces acne hormones, helps acne inflammation. Don't drink already made bottled green tea because it has to much sugar in it & less antioxidants! Only drink freshly brewed tea! Drinking to much tea is counter-productive!

      MILK has been linked to acne! Drink Rice Dream Rice Drink instead of milk!

      Six Things Must Be Done Everyday To Reduce Or Prevent Acne! Doing One Or A Few Of These Things Will Not Keep Your Skin Clear As Possible! Do The Following:

      1) Wash, Tone, Moisturize Your Face Everyday! Apply these three products at least 2 times a day, morning & night (possibly 3rd time, midday, if super oily/sweating). Only use oil-free products that won't clog pores and cause acne! Natural and gentle products are sometimes more effective than acne medication, try this routine: Wash face with warm water & Purpose Gentle Cleansing Bar by Johnson & Johnson. Tone face with Witch Hazel, try Thayers or Dickinson's, its gentle, minimizes pores, heals acne. Moisturize face with Lily Of The Desert Aloe Vera Gelly, its 99% organic, contains vitamin A, C, E, heals acne and scars!

      2) Keep dirt & bacteria at bay to prevent more breakouts! Don't touch face with hands, Clean phone often or don't let phone touch face, Keep hair clean or don't let oily dirty hair touch face, Don't lean face on objects, Clean glasses often, Wash pillowcase, bedsheets, blanket, washcloth, towel often. Wash hands before applying face products. Use fresh makeup, not old makeup. Wash or replace makeup tools often.

      3) Eat Healthy Food, Limit Junk Food! Eat healthy food everyday such as fruit, vegetables, lean meat, fiber, beans, wholegrains, foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin A & C. Limit intake of frozen meals, dairy, milk, fat, oil, butter, greasy/fried foods, sugar, candy, salt, dessert, caffeine, coffee, pop, alcohol. Always avoid cigarettes, tobacco, illegal drugs!

      4) Take A Multi Vitamin Mineral Supplement Everyday! Its hard to get all the vitamins and minerals your skin needs on a daily basis, so take a supplement everyday! Caution! Overdosing on vitamins and minerals whether from food or supplements is toxic and dangerous!

      5) Drinking about 64 oz of Pure Water everyday improves skin quality, flushes out toxins, delivers nutrients to skin! You can also include 100% Fruit Juice as part of your daily total.

      6) Doing 20 to 30 minutes of Aerobic Exercise everyday (or every other day) increases circulation & delivery of nutrients to skin cells, encourages good blood supply, helps remove toxins, controls acne breakouts! Stay hydrated by drinking water before, during, after workout! Immediately take a shower to remove sweat and dirt!

  38. QUESTION:
    Have you been diagnosed with drug induced Lupus ?
    !0 years ago began having problem with elevated blood pressure. Was treated with the usually prescribed meds. Within the past ten years I have had a variety of unusual and often preplexing symptoms that the doctors couldn't find good answers for. Lots of guesses and lots of unsuccessful treatments and increased frustration and misery until recently. The diagnosis is drug induced Lupus and it is believed to be caused by my blood pressure meds. Bingo. The symptoms have developed over the same period I've been on the meds. My question is: Any known effective alternatives for Blood Pressure Control? Anyone else with Lupus have bizarre skin and hair folllicle issues? Any one know a reputable doctor in Kansas City Missouri to advise on alternative treatments? Any one know of a web site to purchase alternative B/P treatments that you or someone you know have had personal experience with? Are there suggestions for a great support website for Lupus?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi WIngsOfGrace

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

      Cause
      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

      Best of health to you

  39. QUESTION:
    If i excercise 5 days a week for 30 minutes will i lose weight?
    This includes eating healthy. About how much would i lose in a month? im 130 pounds.
    i wanna know if its really worth it?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure you've heard about this amazing fruit called the acai berry with "mystical" weight loss qualities that help you lose weight fast, the natural way.

      However, combined with proper diet and exercise, the acai berry can be an excellent weight loss aid. Its natural combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, phytosterols, and amino acids work together to help your body function better, process food easier, and burn fat more efficiently. Let’s break down how the acai berry helps people reach their perfect weight…

      The acai berry contains Omega fatty acids – the same medically recommended fats found in fish oil, olive oil and flaxseed. These fatty acids can’t be produced by the body, and must be obtained from the food we eat. Instead of being stored as fat, they are used by the liver to “kick-start” the metabolism. If you’re a slow starter when it comes to losing weight, or if you’ve reached the frustrating “plateau” phase of weight loss, adding some form of acai to your diet might be just the ticket to get over the hump.

      The acai berry contains a generous amount of fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods.

      As mentioned above, the acai berry has a generous amount of fiber. High fiber foods like acai help you to feel fuller faster and cut down on nagging cravings, needless snacking, and late night trips to the refrigerator.

      Final Word on Acai Berry & Weight Loss

      Although it’s not the miracle weight loss solution that some claim, the acai berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain ingredients that aid in weight loss. Not only does it provide a valuable boost to the metabolism, it also suppresses appetite, helps build muscle, and gives a much-needed shot of energy and stamina for those fat blasting workouts.

  40. QUESTION:
    Ladies have you tried any face cream where you saw real and tangible results?
    More clarity, more firmness and better color? What is your favorite? Please, I don't want to hear from any salespeople. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      It took more than just a cream for me; I improved my diet, and stopped using products that have harmful toxins in them (now I stick to Burt's Bee's), such as:

      * Mineral Oil, Paraffin & Petrolatum – Petroleum products coat the skin like plastic, clogging pores and creating a build-up of toxins, which in turn accumulate and can lead to dermatological issues, like slowing cellular development, which can cause you to show earlier signs of aging. Suspected cause of cancer & Disruptive of hormonal activity.

      * PARABENS – Such as methyl- propyl- butyl- & ethyl- parabens: Widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry (including moisturizers). An estimated 13,200 cosmetic and skin care products contain parabens. Studies implicate their connection with cancer. They have hormone-disrupting qualities – mimicking estrogen – and interfere with the body’s endocrine system.

      * Phenol carbolic acid – Found in many lotions and skin creams. Can cause circulatory collapse, paralysis, convulsions, coma and even death from respiratory failure.

      * Propylene glycol – Used as a moisturizer in cosmetics and as a carrier in fragrance oils. Shown to cause dermatitis, kidney or liver abnormalities, may inhibit skin cell growth, and is a skin irritant and sensitizer.

      * Acrylamide – Found in many hand and face creams. Linked to mammary tumors in lab research.

      * Sodium laurel or lauryl sulfate (SLS), also known as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) – Found in car washes, engine degreasers, garage floor cleaners… and in over 90% of personal care products! SLS breaks down the skin’s moisture barrier, easily penetrates the skin, and allows other chemicals to easily penetrate. Combined with other chemicals, SLS becomes a “nitrosamine”, a potent class of carcinogen. It can also cause hair loss. SLES is sometimes disguised with the labeling “comes from coconut” or “coconut-derived" - and is found in many popular body washes and toothpastes!

      * Toluene – Poison! Danger! Harmful or fatal if swallowed! Harmful if inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Made from petroleum or coal tar, and found in most synthetic fragrances. Chronic exposure linked to anemia, lowered blood cell count, liver or kidney damage, and may affect a developing fetus. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) contains toluene. Other names may include benzoic and benzyl.

      * WAXES – Such as Paraffin, Candelilla Wax, Carnuba Wax: Waxes are widely used in cleansing creams, eye creams, and moisturizers. Waxes clog pores, creating blackheads and whiteheads. They also smother the skin, which over time creates an enlarged pore problem.

      * Lanolin – A yellow, semi-solid, fatty secretion from sheep’s wool is widely used in skin and beauty care products. It can cause an allergic reaction in some people, as well as enlarged pores.

      * Acetone – Used in nail polish and nail polish removers, this colorless, volatile liquid is often used in astringents, fresheners, or clarifying lotions. It is extremely toxic and will dehydrate the skin, while speeding up the aging process.

      * ALCOHOLS – Such as Isopropyl Alcohol, SD Alcohol 40, Ethyl Alcohol: Alcohols dissolve the body’s natural moisturizers and strip the skin of its protection, leaving it vulnerable to infection. Alcohols destroy skin’s pH balance, and since they absorb water, they speed up wrinkling.

      * FD&C – When this abbreviation precedes the name of a color, it means that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has certified it as safe for use in drugs and cosmetics, but not food. D&C colors are usually synthetic, coal tar colors. They’re toxic and should be avoided when at all possible.

      * Dioxane – Found in compounds known as PEG, Polysorbates, Laureth, ethoxylated alcohols. Common in a wide range of personal care products. The compounds are usually contaminated with high concentrations of highly volatile 1,4-dioxane, easily absorbed through the skin. Dioxane’s carcinogenicity was first reported in 1965 and later confirmed in studies including one from the National Cancer Institute in 1978. Nasal passages and liver are the most vulnerable. Dioxane is easily removed during the manufacturing process by “vacuum stripping”. Warning: It is a synthetic derivative of coconut. Watch for hidden language on labels, such as “comes from coconut”.

      IF SO, you should throw them away IMMEDIATELY and Tell ALL your friends and family!!! (Extra-virgin olive and/or coconut oils are great alternative moisturizers, and they contain natural sunscreens, until you find something else without these toxins) Hope this helps!!! Good luck!!!!!

  41. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to relieve pain from a gall stone attack, or do I just suffer?
    I have been to the E.R. twice in one week, found out i have gallstones and have scheduled an appointment for my gallbladder to be removed BUT surgery is not until dec.4th. If I should have another attack how can I relive the pain? or anything that I should do at home to prevent further attacks?

    • ANSWER:
      I and many of my friends have done all natural gall bladder cleanses, they will flush out the colon and you can see them in the toilet bowl. Removing the gall bladder will not solve the problem, it is just an expensive K-K surgery. Gall stones are fatty like substances that FIRST build up in your liver, then they spill over into the gall bladder, they are almost always a result of a very fatty diet with little fiber and little water. They build up over time and can be various sizes. Google " recipe for flushing gallstones" you will see that many people have done this and it is successful, you will see recipes that work. It just takes a couple of days and about . It is a natural detox procedure that you can repeat several times until you no longer see the stones coming out. Most people that have the gall bladder removed will still have the same symptoms reappear within 1-3 years because the problem is with the DIET and they still have gall stones in the liver. I would encourage you to take responsibility for your own health, be proactive and do some research before you go through with this needless surgery.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Burton

      Not sure about the FBI, but here is how to heal your condition.

      Causes
      Crohn's disease can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor diet and nutrition, food allergies, imbalanced levels of hydrochloric acid, impaired immunity, infections, lack of exercise, "leaky gut" syndrome, pharmaceutical drugs, and stress.

      Quick Action Plan for Crohn's Disease

      1. Diet is of primary importance. Avoid all sugars, refined flour products, and carbohydrates, milk and dairy products, processed foods that contain preservatives and artificial sweeteners, alcohol, hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, as well as foods that are common allergens.

      2. Emphasize organic, fresh vegetables and non-citrus fruits, organic grains, as well as organic, free-range meats and poultry and wild-caught fish.

      3. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water throughout the day.

      4. Enema containing butyric acid two to five times a week. (Add one tablespoon of butyric acid to one quart of warm water.) Do a Colon Cleanse to clean out the toxins in the body. A liver cleanse will help new blood penetrate the sick areas and help the healing process.

      5. Supplements with vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc, taken with a multivitamin/multimineral formula. Essential fatty acids, especial omega-3 oils, are also recommended.

      6. Stress reduction through the use of various mind/body medicine techniques, such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, meditation and relaxation exercises.

      7. If you smoke, stop and if you are currently taking aspirin or other NSAIDs, consider replacing them with safer, more effective natural remedies.

      8. Soothing baths two to five nights and alternating hot and cold water packs placed over the stomach and upper abdomen.

      9. Juice remedies include aloe juice; wheatgrass juice; cabbage, papaya, and carrot juice; and carrot, beet, and cucumber juice.

      10. Juice of half a lemon with warm water, especially in the morning.

      11. Allow yourself to receive emotional support to help you embrace some of the common underlying issues identified with Crohn's, such as abandonment, anger, disappointment and rage, which often settle in the gut. Seek out a therapist or other skilled practitioner that can guide you through emotional healing work.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

    I need to lose weight, badly! What are some ways I can lose weight to look good for bikini season?
    please give me some websites thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sure you've heard about this amazing fruit called the acai berry with "mystical" weight loss qualities that help you lose weight fast, the natural way.

      However, combined with proper diet and exercise, the acai berry can be an excellent weight loss aid. Its natural combination of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, amino acids, phytosterols, and amino acids work together to help your body function better, process food easier, and burn fat more efficiently. Let’s break down how the acai berry helps people reach their perfect weight…

      The acai berry contains Omega fatty acids – the same medically recommended fats found in fish oil, olive oil and flaxseed. These fatty acids can’t be produced by the body, and must be obtained from the food we eat. Instead of being stored as fat, they are used by the liver to “kick-start” the metabolism. If you’re a slow starter when it comes to losing weight, or if you’ve reached the frustrating “plateau” phase of weight loss, adding some form of acai to your diet might be just the ticket to get over the hump.

      The acai berry contains a generous amount of fiber which promotes a healthy digestive system and helps cleanse your system of fatty foods.

      As mentioned above, the acai berry has a generous amount of fiber. High fiber foods like acai help you to feel fuller faster and cut down on nagging cravings, needless snacking, and late night trips to the refrigerator.

      Final Word on Acai Berry & Weight Loss

      Although it’s not the miracle weight loss solution that some claim, the acai berry has been medically and scientifically proven to contain ingredients that aid in weight loss. Not only does it provide a valuable boost to the metabolism, it also suppresses appetite, helps build muscle, and gives a much-needed shot of energy and stamina for those fat blasting workouts.

  48. QUESTION:
    any one ever had a medical miracle healing or remission of a major disease?
    Do you beilive in medical or miracles that healed the body?

    • ANSWER:
      The human body has many ordinary modes of achieving elimination: the liver, lungs, kidneys, colon, etc. When these are overloaded, the body will resort to "extra ordinary" methods of elimination: boils, mucous and other discharges, sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, and many others. Should elimination be impossible or uneconomical of body energy, the toxic overload will go into storage forms in the joints, vessels, muscles, organs; almost any tissue in the body. While fasting, the body is highly conservative of its energy and resources. During this deep and profound rest, toxin intake and production are reduced to a minimum while autolysins and elimination proceed unchecked. Anabolic processes such as tissue and bone healing also proceed at a maximal rate during the fast.
      In the body, the first stage of cleansing removes large quantities of waste matter and digestive residues. The first few days of a fast can be rough due to the quantity of waste passing into the blood stream. The tongue becomes coated and the breath foul as the body excretes waste through every opening. After the third day of the fast, there is little desire for food. The second stage is the cleansing of mucous, fat, diseased and dying cells, and the more easily removed toxins. As the fast continues, the cleansing process becomes more thorough. The last stage is the cleansing of toxins that have been accumulating in your cellular tissue from birth, and the microscopic tubes that carry vital elements to the brain. Cleansing of the last layer is only possible through a combination of juice fasting, water fasting, and a healthy diet high in raw foods. To overcome a severe disease like cancer, it is important to continue through a series of fasts, to the point where the full scouring action of catabolism removes the disease from the tissue.

      During extended fasts the body removes: dead, dying and diseased cells; unwanted fatty tissue, trans-fatty acids, hardened coating of mucus on the intestinal wall; toxic waste matter in the lymphatic system and bloodstream; toxins in the spleen, liver and kidney; mucus from the lungs and sinuses, imbedded toxins in the cellular fibers and deeper organ tissues; deposits in the microscopic tubes responsible for nourishing brain cells and excess cholesterol.
      During a fast, a metamorphosis occurs. The body undergoes a tearing down and rebuilding of damaged materials. For this reason, fasting is famous for its ability to rejuvenate and give the body a more youthful tone. Why does fasting have such a powerful effect in healing the body? Fasting dissolves diseased cells in a systematic manner, leaving healthy tissue. The result is a thorough cleansing of the tube, membrane and cellular structures. There is a remarkable redistribution of nutrients in the fasting body. It hangs on to precious minerals and vitamins while catabolizing on old tissue, toxins and inferior materials.

      Each cell of your body is a complete living entity with its own metabolism. It needs a constant supply of oxygen and sufficient nourishment. When due to nutritional deficiencies, sluggish metabolism, sedentary life, overeating and consequent poor digestion and assimilation of food, lack of fresh air and sufficient exercise and rest, our cells are deprived... they start to degenerate... the normal process of cell replacement and rebuilding slows down and your body starts to grow old, its resistance to disease will diminish and you become ‘sick’.
      Although fasting is not recommended in every situation, (cancer of the liver is one instance where fasting is contraindicated), in many situations fasting is the only known solution. Fasting has been beneficial for arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, lupus, chronic fatigue, colitis, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, spastic colon, irritable bowel, cases of paralysis, neuritis, neuralgia, neuroses, and mental illness as well as many others. Fasting will also break down tumors and for this reason, many have overcome cancer with fasting.

  49. QUESTION:
    what are some herbal remedies used to treat Lupus?
    A friend was just dianosed with Lupus. During a short on-line search, I found nothing regarding herbs being used for treatment.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi DLD

      Here are some ideas to heal the issue. Also learning about detoxifying the blood by doing colon and liver cleanses will change your health forever.

      Cause
      Food allergies (there is a 100 percent correlation between lupus and food allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, parasites, candidiasis, bowel problems, and digestive enzyme deficiencies can create symptoms that mimic or exacerbate SLE. Migraines, epilepsy, and psychoses must also be ruled out before a proper course of treatment can be decided upon.

      Both forms of lupus primarily strike young women (90% of cases) and young children.

      The drugs hydralazine, procainamide, and beta blockers can cause false-positive readings of SLE, and can also produce a lupus-like condition that disappears when the drugs are no longer taken. Birth control pills and environmental stresses can also exacerbate lupus symptoms.

      ------------------------------...

      Natural Cures

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet. Also avoid overeating and limit your intake of dairy, beef products, and polyunsaturated oils. Also screen for food allergies and avoid all foods to which you are allergic or sensitive. Increase your intake of vegetables, especially green, yellow, and orange, and consume non-farm-raised fish several times a week.

      Herbs: Supplementation with Swedish bitters with each meal can increase hydrochloric acid production. Also drink an infusion of nettle twice a day. Other useful herbs include echinacea, goldenseal, licorice, pau d`arco, and red clover

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment.

      Hyperthermia: Hyperthermia involves artificially creating fever in the body for the purpose of boosting immune function. Hyperthermia can be a highly effective method of eliminating toxins and heavy metals, as well as infectious bacteria and viruses that cannot survive in elevated body temperatures.

      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy or hyperthermia treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Drink the juice of carrot, celery, flaxseed oil, black currant oil, and garlic.

      Nutritional Supplementation: Hydrochloric acid (HCL) deficiency is common in people with lupus, therefore HCL supplements with each meal is advised. Other useful nutrients include vitamin A with beta carotene, vitamin C and bioflavonoids, vitamin B complex, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, essential fatty acids, proteolytic enzymes taken away from meals, digestive enzymes taken with meals, and the amino acids L-cysteine, L-methionine, and L-cystine.

      Topical Treatment: PABA cream applied topically can help ease symptoms.

  50. QUESTION:
    How to cure fatty liver without medicine? what food intake or any other activity or home remedies?

    • ANSWER:
      The most effective way to cleanse the liver is to consume green leafy vegetables on a daily basis along with a healthy, low fat, high fiber diet. Walking done at least 20 minutes a day, also helps the liver release toxins and remove excess fatty deposits in the body.

      There are some medicinal drinks that are included in the macrobiotic lifestyle which help to heal the liver and reduce internal fat deposits around the vital organs, of which the liver is one. For these drinks to be beneficial, you would need to follow a vegetarian diet, as meat and cheese as well as high fat consumption interferes with the body's natural ability to heal itself.

      The drink itself is included in Michio Kushi's book, The Macrobiotic Way. It consists of one tablespoon of finely grated carrot, one tablespoon of finely grated Daikon radish (a long white Japanese radish), 1/4 sheet of organic Nori, (the seaweed that they use in making sushi) and 12oz. of cold water. Grate the radish and carrot into a small pan large enough to hold the water. Tear up Nori into small pieces, add a few drops of Shoyu Soy Sauce for flavor. Bring to gentle rolling boil and turn off, letting the vegetables sit and steep in the water for 5-7 minutes. Pour into a cup and drink the liquid and eat the vegetables by chewing them well. Chewing your food thoroughly is an important process in helping to eliminate waste by making digestion easier. This should be done in the evening, before bed. It's rather like a vegetable soup in flavor.

      Milk Thistle is also a way to help the liver cleanse itself. You can purchase these capsules from any health food store. Follow the directions on the label. If you are allergic to the dandelion family, do not pursue this avenue of healing. When at all possible, try to buy organic vegetables, as there are no chemicals which make it more difficult for your body to cleanse itself. There's no reason to add more things for your body to deal with as it's trying to cleanse and heal.

      I hope this helps. Good luck on your way to health!
