The Critical Role of the Gut Microbiome in Immunity

Health Frontiers Radio - The Critical Role of the Gut Microbiome in Immunity

As the world embraces getting back to work, many are justifiably concerned about the health and safety of their loved ones and the confusion over how to best protect their families.  Join our team as we discuss the critical role of the gut microbiome in immunity and its direct link to mental and physical health.

A healthy gut microbiome or terrain will be around 80% beneficial bacteria and 20% other bacteria (physiologically unpleasant flora like candida, e.coli, etc.)

When this ratio gets flipped, this is when the terrain is prone to welcoming the things we don’t want.

NOW WHAT ARE THESE THINGS WE DON’T WANT?

Things that upset the ideal balance of microbes and leave our terrain vulnerable include:

  • Antibiotics
  • Refined sugars
  • Vaccines
  • OTC and prescription pain and fever medications
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Alcohol
  • GMO’s
  • Antibacterial hand soaps and hand sanitizers
  • Antibacterial cleaning products
  • Chlorine (swimming pools, tap water, bleach, etc.)
  • Aspartame (artificial sweetener found in diet products

One of the most important things we can understand in order to have the best health possible is that the germ isn’t the problem!

*It is the gut biome or terrain that decides whether we get sick, get infected or not.

*It’s the terrain that decides if a wound will become infected

*It’s the terrain that makes one susceptible to disease

Our body has 10 times more microbes living within it than cells

So you can see that if we have more pathogenic (bad) than beneficial bacteria, it matters more than the health of our cells.

In fact, without any healthy microbes, we would die.

This is why antibiotic resistance is killing an increasing number of people around the world.

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF SOFT DRINKS, EVEN 0 AND 1 CALORIE TYPES IN THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BUT BIOME? 

HOW DO YOU CREATE A HEALTHIER GUT BIOME

Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Looking after the health of the gut and maintaining the right balance of these microorganisms is vital for physical and mental health, immunity, and more.  These bacteria, yeasts, and viruses — of which there are around 100 trillion — are also called the “gut microbiome” or “gut flora.”

Many microbes are beneficial for human health, and some are even essential. Others can be harmful, especially when they multiply.  In this article, we list 10 scientifically supported ways to improve the gut microbiome and enhance overall health.

1. Take probiotics and eat fermented foods

To boost the beneficial bacteria, or probiotics, in the gut, some people choose to take probiotic supplements.

These are available in health food stores, drug stores, and online.

Some research has suggested that taking probiotics can support a healthy gut microbiome and that it may prevent gut inflammation and other intestinal problems.

Fermented foods are a natural source of probiotics.

Consuming the following foods regularly may improve gut health:

  • fermented vegetables
  • kefir
  • kimchi
  • kombucha
  • miso
  • sauerkraut
  • tempeh

2. Eat prebiotic fiber

Probiotics feed on nondigestible carbohydrates called prebiotics. This process encourages beneficial bacteria to multiply in the gut.

Research from 2017 suggested that prebiotics may help probiotics become more tolerant to certain environmental conditions, including pH and temperature changes.

People who want to enhance their gut health may wish to include more of the following prebiotic-rich foods in their diet:

  • asparagus
  • bananas
  • chicory
  • garlic
  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • onions
  • whole grains

3. Eat less sugar and sweeteners

Eating a lot of sugar or artificial sweeteners may cause gut dysbiosis, which is an imbalance of gut microbes.

The authors of a 2015 study in animals suggested that the standard Western diet, which is high in sugar and fat, negatively affects the gut microbiome. In turn, this can influence the brain and behavior.

Another animal study reported that the artificial sweetener aspartame increases the number of some bacterial strains that are linked with metabolic disease.

Metabolic disease refers to a group of conditions that increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Research has also indicated that human use of artificial sweeteners can negatively impact blood glucose levels due to their effects on gut flora. This means that artificial sweeteners may increase blood sugar despite not actually being sugar.

4. Reduce stress

Sleep deprivation can negatively affect gut health.

Managing stress is important for many aspects of health, including gut health.

Animal studies have suggested that psychological stressors can disrupt the microorganisms in the intestines, even if the stress is only short-lived.

In humans, a variety of stressors can negatively affect gut health, including:

  • psychological stress
  • environmental stress, such as extreme heat, cold, or noise
  • sleep deprivation
  • disruption of the circadian rhythm

Some stress management techniques include meditation, deep breathing exercises, and progressive muscle relaxation.

Exercising regularly, sleeping well, and eating a healthy diet can also reduce stress levels.

5. Avoid taking antibiotics unnecessarily

Although it is often necessary to take antibiotics to combat bacterial infections, overuse is a significant public health concern that can lead to antibiotic resistance.

Antibiotics are also damaging to the gut microbiota and immunity, with some research reporting that even 6 months after their use, the gut still lacks several species of beneficial bacteria.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), doctors in the United States prescribe around 30% of antibiotics unnecessarily.

As a result, the CDC recommends that people discuss antibiotics and alternative options with their doctor before use.

6. Exercise regularly

Regular exercise contributes to good heart health and weight loss or weight maintenance. Research has also suggested that it may also improve gut health, which may, in turn, help control obesity.

Working out may increase species diversity. A 2014 study found that athletes had a larger variety of gut flora than nonathletes.

However, the athletes also ate a different diet to the control group, which could account for the differences in their microbiomes.

The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week, along with muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days each week.

7. Get enough sleep

Getting enough good-quality sleep can improve mood, cognition, and gut health.

A 2014 animal study indicated that irregular sleep habits and disturbed sleep can have negative outcomes for the gut flora, which may increase the risk of inflammatory conditions.

Establish healthy sleep habits by going to bed and getting up at the same time each day. Adults should get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.

8. Use different cleaning products

Just as antibiotics can disrupt the gut microbiota, so too can disinfectant cleaning products, according to the results of one study. The 2018 research analyzed the gut flora of over 700 infants ages 3–4 months.

The researchers found that those who lived in homes where people used disinfectant cleaning products at least weekly were twice as likely to have higher levels of Lachnospiraceae gut microbes, a type associated with type 2 diabetes and obesity.

At age 3, these infants had a higher body mass index (BMI) than children without exposure to such high levels of disinfectants.

9. Avoid smoking

Smoking affects gut health as well as the health of the heart and lungs. It also greatly increases the risk of cancer.

A 2018 review of research published over a 16-year period found that smoking alters the intestinal flora by increasing potentially harmful microorganisms and decreasing the levels of beneficial ones.

These effects may increase the risk of intestinal and systemic conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Summary

Maintaining a healthy gut contributes to better overall health and immune function.

By making appropriate lifestyle and dietary changes, people can alter the diversity and number of microbes in their gut for the better.

Positive changes a person can make include taking probiotics, following a fiber-rich vegetarian diet, and avoiding the unnecessary use of antibiotics and disinfectants.

Other simple lifestyle changes a person can make include getting enough sleep and exercising regularly.

However, a person should talk to their doctor before making any drastic changes to their diet. This is because for some people, such as those with irritable bowel syndrome or other medical conditions, probiotics and fiber-rich or vegetarian diets may not be helpful.

Primary Author: David Williams, MD 

Revised April 23 with updates to section regarding COVID-19 deaths and the addendum.

The Truth (and Lies) about Coronavirus

This is being written on April 19, 2020. Although there is a central author, it is being written on behalf of multiple physicians in West Alabama and will be distributed through multiple medical offices. Between us we have well over a hundred years of practice and have treated hundreds of thousands of patients suffering infectious diseases. Including mission trips we have treated patients on five continents. We planned this date for several reasons. First, most of our patients now realize there is something “funny” about the coverage and handling of this disease. Secondly, if it wasn’t being handled differently by April 19, we knew it would take action from us and our patients to change that handling. Finally, we were told in March by our state officials that experts predicted New York, Florida, Texas, and Alabama were projected to have the median most fatalities from the COVID-19 outbreak with the peak in Alabama expected to be April 19. On this date, Alabama was supposed to be on pace for 5,516 deaths and be short over 21,000 hospital beds. The information just listed, and every piece of information discussed below can be verified with a quick internet search. Many of the sources will be directly referenced. So here goes:

TRUTH: COVID-19 is an actual medical disease that will lead to tragic deaths.  Although this seems obvious, it should be clear that no one involved wishes to express anything but sympathy to those affected and their families. Respiratory failure is a terrible way to die. That is true if that death is due to asthma, COPD, pneumonia, influenza, smoke inhalation, cystic fibrosis, ALS, or COVID-19.

LIE: We don’t know much about coronavirus. This is one of the media’s favorite lies. It is much scarier if it is unknown. We know that coronavirus is a zoonotic disease. In other words, it’s natural hosts are birds and animals as opposed to humans. We vaccinate domestic animals for them. We know that four forms cause colds every year. We know it mutates and evolves just like the flu. We know it sometimes becomes deadly as it has in SARS and MERS. We have done medical studies on coronavirus as a coexisting illness in patients in the past.

LIE: COVID-19 is more infectious than influenza. This is one of two lies most often quoted by the millions who call national radio programs or post on social media. It is amazing how many people with absolutely no medical training somehow feel qualified to comment on this disease. Now, we want to be more fair than the national media so we are obligated to report there will never be a study where 1,000 people eat after people with the flu and 1,000 others eat after people with COVID-19 to see which one is more infectious. But the evidence is overwhelming. COVID-19 was first identified in late December/early January. A little over three and a half months in, we have slightly over 2 million confirmed cases globally. By comparison, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (Google Influenza Update- NCBI), influenza is responsible for up to a billion infections annually. Flu season is basically from the start of October until April. At the flu’s three and a half month mark, that works out to 583 million cases globally. Even accounting for the fact COVID-19 is underreported that is a HUGE difference.

However, there is even further evidence influenza is more infectious. Drawing from our own (meaning everyone reading this) experiences, when influenza gets started in a daycare or elementary school, they often have to be closed for a short time because otherwise, everyone gets it. All the kids, workers, teachers, and parents. The most students in one class we could remember was 23 of 25 out at the same time with the flu. Certainly, daycare classes in both Tuscaloosa and Jefferson counties have been closed this year. Contrast that to what you know about coronavirus. The NBA tested hundreds of players, staff, and media to come up with 14 cases. The vast majority did not contract the virus at all. The most extreme case in terms of possible COVID-19 exposure we could find was the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt. If you have never toured a military ship, space is at a premium. Very tight and crowded conditions. Secondary to this, hundreds of crew would become infected. So 4,800 men and women were exposed to multiple individuals with the virus several times a day, day after day. Despite that constant exposure, 4,140 (or over 86%) of those sailors would never even contract the disease.

To address the possible rebuttals, it is absolutely true we don’t know the true number of COVID-19 cases. It doesn’t make the average person under 60 sick so we will never account for all of those. However, it doesn’t even infect the average person with a healthy immune system who comes in contact with it, so the number can only be so high. It is true that testing has not been available everywhere the entire three and a half months but we are making up for that by testing generously now. Locally, DCH had tested 3,105 by April 17, 2,958 of which were negative.

LIE: COVID-19 is more dangerous than influenza. The second lie of the medically uninformed. Even among those who do contract COVID-19, most under 60, including virtually everyone under 21, will never know they had it. On the USS Theodore Roosevelt, 60% were asymptomatic. Of the 2 million people who have tested positive for COVID-19 globally, most have had mild to no symptoms. By the three and half month mark of flu season, the flu had resulted in over 2 million severe cases requiring hospitalization. Influenza results in 290,000 to 670,000 deaths annually. COVID-19 deaths will be discussed below.

LIE: The fact one doesn’t know he or she has COVID-19 makes it more dangerous. All viruses shed and are primarily spread while the infected host is asymptomatic. Repeat, all viruses do this. We use the term virulence to describe how dangerous a virus is. The more virulent, the more likely to cause infection or more severe symptoms. One’s chance of becoming infected with anything is multifactorial. In other words, lots of things come into play. The infectiousness and quantity of the pathogen comes into play. Your level of rest, nutrition, stress, age, and general health come into play as well. In the case of influenza, if you contract it you are going to get sick. There will never be a time where the NBA tests hundreds of players and staff to find 14 cases of influenza – two with mild symptoms and twelve with no symptoms. If you get influenza, even if you are Michael Jordan (who had perhaps the most famous flu game of all time), you are going to know. That is because the flu is so virulent that in 24 to 48 hours it overwhelms even the immune system of a healthy adult and you develop symptoms.  But in those 24 hours, it is multiplying, everyone around you is at risk. Depending on the exact exposure, the risk goes from high probability to certainty of contracting. For instance, if a high school student kisses their boyfriend or girlfriend during that day, they are getting the flu, period. But COVID-19 is so much less virulent it usually never overcomes the immune system of a healthy adult. Yes, they will shed this virus for up to 2 weeks, but most people around them still won’t get it. Since we are in West Alabama, let’s use a football example. Think of the healthy adult immune system as Alabama’s 2019 football team. Influenza is LSU’s 2019 football team. It only took one exposure to LSU to record a loss. COVID-19 is closer to Arkansas’ 2019 football team, maybe Ole Miss. Alabama could have played them 14 times and were less likely to lose than the one game with LSU. It is possible to record a loss, with some fumbles and a blocked punt, etc. but way less likely.

TRUTH: COVID-19 is more dangerous to the elderly and immunocompromised.

TRUTH: That doesn’t really mean anything in and of itself because everything is more dangerous to those unfortunate individuals. It does mean we should try to protect those individuals from infections in general.

TRUTH: It is now almost impossible for anyone in the general public or general medical community to know the actual number of deaths from COVID-19. That is because sometime in March US hospitals started testing all ER patients and every patient who died, regardless of the cause of death, for COVID-19. Those patients are being included by the media in COVID-19 death tolls. Yes, a victim of a car accident brought to a US ER who passes away will be tested for COVID-19. Two of the most egregious examples of misrepresentation involve infants. One of the fascinating things about coronaviruses from a medical standpoint is children are almost universally immune to deleterious effects. A study from back in 2004-2005 was conducted in which swabs were done in both controls and children hospitalized for respiratory illness. The incidence of coronavirus was the same for controls and hospitalized children and the conclusion was HCoV (coronavirus) infection was not associated with hospitalization or with increased severity of illness in those hospitalized due to other infections. Search NIH if you want to review these findings. Obviously, COVID-19 is not included in that study since it was first identified recently. However, COVID-19 has not been associated with pediatric illness anywhere. Not China, South Korea, Italy, or Spain. So on March 29 when BuzzFeed.News and an Illinois paper, The Guardian, led with the headline “The First Infant Has Died In The US After Testing Positive For The Coronavirus,” it caught our attention. The article goes on to say the infant’s death was announced by Governor JB Pritzker and, depending on which article you read, either Pritzker, or Dr. Ngozi Ezike, director of the Illinois Department of Public Health, said: “If you haven’t been paying attention (to COVID-19), maybe this is your wake-up call.” On April 2, CBS News reported Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont had announced “It is with heartbreaking sadness today that we can confirm the first pediatric fatality in Connecticut linked to COVID-19.” He went on to say it was likely one of the youngest deaths from the disease “anywhere.” The problem is neither death has actually been attributed to COVID-19. On April 3, the Hartford Courant correctly clarified that all patients who die in Connecticut hospitals were being tested for the virus, regardless of the manner of death, and that Connecticut’s Chief Medical Examiner had not ruled COVID-19 to be the infant’s cause of death. Just yesterday, April 18, NBC 5 Chicago reported Chicago Department of Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said it is preliminarily believed the infant in Illinois did not die from coronavirus.

New York is also a source of great misinformation. On March 22, Sky News ran footage of a hospital in Italy. On March 25, CBS This Morning ran the same footage. However, they claimed it was filmed in New York. Citizen reporters by the dozens have recorded empty testing tents and idle ambulance crews when the national media has reported hours-long waits at the same testing sites and overstretched ambulance crews. You can find those videos on Youtube, although they don’t always make it easy. But there are enough people interested in getting the truth out there they are consistently reposted. At the time of publishing, this link was successful https://youtu.be/MOBKyCY2esw. On April 14, the New York Times reported New York City officials at the Health Department had increased its death toll by 3,700 who NEVER TESTED POSITIVE for the virus. They were “presumed” to have died from it.

REVISED April 23, 2020. This is actually much worse than we thought. According to worldometers.info from January 1 to April 1, 2020, the worldwide deaths from COVID-19 were 46,438 as opposed to 121,993 for influenza. To recap, during the same three months, with the same social distancing, the same shelter in place, and even handicapped with a vaccine against it, the flu still killed more than two and a half times as many people as COVID-19. In terms of deciding to shut down the economy, there were 11 causes of death on the list.  Influenza and COVID-19 were ranked a distant 10th and 11th. On March 23, 2020, a Vox.com article by Dylan Scott outlined COVID-19 risks by age group. CDC figures cited a death rate of 2.7 percent for those 65 to 74, 4.3 percent for those 75 to 84, and 10.4 percent for those 85 and over.

How does a virus that killed 46,438 globally in three months (and which about 96% of those 75 to 84, and 90% of those 85 and older survive) suddenly kill 143,984 in the next three weeks, according the same worldometers.info? 

On April 2nd, 2020, the National Vitals Statistics System, which is part of the CDC, provided new guidance regarding the issuing of death certificates. COVID-19 was to be listed if it was assumed to cause or contribute to a death. For example, if someone dies from pneumonia, respiratory distress, or COPD, and has exhibited coronavirus symptoms, their certificate will list COVID-19 as a presumed contributing factor. Since shortness of breath, fever, and/or cough will be exhibited in all respiratory illnesses, every such death could potentially be recorded as a COVID-19 fatality. This certainly appears to be happening across the board.  We have never seen any disease handled in this way. Any medical professional who can provide an example of a similar protocol is encouraged to share such a case. It completely defies any scientific method to work based on assumption. Even doctors opposed to reopening the economy should be upset because we will never have accurate numbers concerning this disease. To complicate matters further, if your city attributes enough deaths to COVID-19, it can request billions of dollars of federal aid.

TRUTH: The current policies instituted by our local, state, and national governments are causing greater health problems than the virus ever will. According to the Wall Street Journal, 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment in just four weeks. When you consider spouses and children, it seems reasonable that up to 70 million Americans would be affected by that number. Staying at home is not without consequence. Those individuals are at significantly higher risk of depression, suicide, domestic abuse, and other mental health issues. The stress is making them more likely to become ill from all manner of disease. Many have lost their insurance. Some will become divorced. Hundreds of thousands of medical procedures have been canceled or delayed.

There is another threat to our health. Rural hospitals have closed in large numbers is recent years. The situation with COVID-19 has placed many more community hospitals of all sizes at risk. Most are relatively empty and are bleeding cash.

TRUTH: The media as a whole has grossly misrepresented this disease. We felt if we used the word “deliberately” we may have to present this as an opinion, but it sure appears deliberate. A couple of national examples include the CBS This Morning story referenced above and yesterday’s CNN story. The headline read “Jacksonville beach packed as Florida coronavirus cases hit record” and they ran a photo taken in the past of a Los Angeles County beach to show the crowd. Locally, on April 14, local news outlets used the headline, “Mayor Walt Maddox to Pitch Plan to Re-open Tuscaloosa on April 28th.” While not technically untrue, that sounds like the plan is to re-open the city on April 28th. In reality, it should have read, “On April 28, Mayor Walt Maddox to Pitch Plan to Re-open Tuscaloosa,” because no plan is even to be presented until April 28. A Tuscaloosa News headline today read “Prison system reports COVID-19 death.” You had to read the article to find the 66-year-old victim was already terminally ill and had been hospitalized since April 4th in critical care for his preexisting conditions. He only tested positive on the last day of his life.

OPINION: The way in which the media has pushed fear nonstop amounts to psychological warfare against this country. If it hasn’t occurred to you that we have heard one story and essentially one story alone for literally two months, well, that should have aroused suspicion.

TRUTH: The media will continue to fight reopening of this country by stating “experts” predict a spike in deaths if we do so. We would assume those are the same experts who initially predicted 2.2 million US deaths, revised to 200,000, then 100,000, then 60,000, then ordered testing all US deaths just in case they had coronavirus because we weren’t on pace for even 30,000 prior to that change in policy.

TRUTH: Not every country has shut down their economy, and none of those countries have suffered higher rates of death because they have kept their economy going. One of the searches done prior to putting this together related to countries who kept their businesses open. One of the lowest mortality rates in the entire world is Japan, who fits that description. Looking for the country with the highest mortality rate and an open economy, we came across an article with a very liberal bent that described two Scandinavian countries. It described how uncaring Sweden was as it conducted business as usual while Denmark cared for its’ people and shut down. The expected mortality rate for Sweden was 69 per million whereas Denmark was 39 per million. If you take 69 and multiply it by 340 (for 340 million people in the United States) it comes out to 23,640, or about 15,000 fewer people than we are expected to lose to the flu this year.

OPINION: Medical organizations have failed this country. Literally every doctor in America should know everything listed above. So why haven’t organizations like the AMA and AAFP, as well as state organizations, presented this information to their governors and the President?

TRUTH: China is involved, but not how you think. We can not tell you how many times people have expressed consternation about not knowing what China is hiding. Generally, they feel it is horrific death numbers or the genesis story of the virus. China withheld information about the virulence of COVID-19. They knew they had cases of asymptomatic individuals, possibly hundreds of thousands of such patients. By not including this data it changed the mortality rate greatly. Initial terror regarding COVID-19 was a 4% mortality rate in China. Most would now concede the mortality rate is less than 0.2% given the high number of asymptomatic patients. Meanwhile, the Chinese are buying property in affected areas, particularly Italy, and likely not unhappy with what is happening in America given their trade battles with President Trump.

TRUTH: The NBA canceled their season voluntarily, with no external domestic pressures, and China is a huge market for them. Their financial interests in China were threatened after a single tweet from Houston GM Daryl Morey in October supporting Hong Kong protestors. After literally a single runny nose, the NBA canceled their season and proceeded to test hundreds of healthy individuals looking for COVID-19. We find it fascinating no one in the media, and certainly, no one at ESPN has asked questions about that behavior.

TRUTH: People are lazy, or they have an agenda. Not only did the media not ask pertinent questions about the NBA, but they also have not reached out to knowledgeable health professionals even when they were provided the names and contacts of such individuals. If the narrative did not fit COVID-19 terror, it was ignored. We know this has happened both locally and nationally. Local, state and national politicians have done the same thing. All of the information here is readily available. So if any elected official has said anything along the lines of “as a leader, I feel a responsibility to keep people safe,” to support restrictions on you or local businesses, ask that official what research he or she was basing his or her decision on. The general public is lazy. They read headlines. Grossly misleading headlines. So when you pass this on, you will have to insist people actually read the whole thing.

TRUTH: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is making a fortune, and he wants you to stay home. In addition to owning Amazon, he owns the Washington Post. Just read any headline or article it has ever written regarding a plan to reopen the economy. Do with that information what you will, but we hope it means you stop ordering from Amazon and support local businesses instead.

TRUTH: COVID-19 has been treated like a world-ender; it’s not even remotely close.  As mentioned earlier, it has infected just over 2 million people in the world. Not killed 2 million people. Actually, not even made 2 million sick. Just infected. So it is 76 million short of infecting 1% of the world’s population. It is 998 million short of infecting as many as influenza has this year, the vast majority of which are sicker than the average coronavirus patient. The world has never shut down for any disease before. And it chose this one to do so?

TRUTH: Quarantine is a period or place of isolation in which people who have been exposed or infected with a contagious disease are placed. The government has used it to impose shelter in place on healthy individuals and close businesses. There are words for that, but quarantine is not one of those words.

TRUTH: This is not a medical crisis, but a political crisis. There is a saying in politics, “never waste a crisis,” and this is apparently true even if the crisis is fabricated. We briefly debated leaving out politics, but the reality is most have already figured this out and there is no explaining the phenomenon that is COVID-19 hysteria without talking politics. In short, Democrats attempted to impeach Trump late in 2019 and failed. Shortly after a State of the Union address in which he touted considerable economic success, COVID-19 was made front and center by the media. Most probably feel both parties have failed us but there is no debating which party is most responsible for pushing the fear. Every time President Trump argues for reopening, the press and the Democrats gnash their teeth and talk higher death tolls. The governors of Illinois and Connecticut who incorrectly reported infant deaths are Democrat. Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, who has gone so far as to restrict her state’s residents from mowing their lawns and planting flowers, is a Democrat. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, who threatened to permanently take licenses from open businesses and organize a special police task force to arrest anyone in groups of more than ten, is a Democrat.

Mayor Walt Maddox is a Democrat. He told us in March that if he did nothing Tuscaloosa County would experience 3,686 deaths due to COVID-19. Think about that for just a second. It was first identified in Wuhan, China, a city of over 11 million people. China has a population of 1.4 billion and at the time of his presentation, COVID-19 had killed a little over 3,200 in the entire country. Tuscaloosa County has a population of just under 184,000 and is considerably less densely populated than Wuhan, China. That number is not only meant to do nothing except incite fear but indicates a serious lack of insight and judgement.

TRUTH: The Alabama coronavirus numbers presented in the opening paragraph appear to be way off. We are nowhere near 5,000 deaths. In fact, we currently have only 4,700 total cases and 113 deaths. Tuscaloosa County has yet to experience a single death. DCH reports five or fewer inpatients in the ICU (they will only report units of five to protect privacy) being treated for COVID-19 with five or fewer on ventilators. Again, every such patient is significant, but we are thankful the numbers are so small. While we recognize some may feel those numbers are smaller due to social distancing and/or shelter in place orders, COVID-19 numbers have not been affected by those behaviors when compared to countries where they were not employed.

TRUTH: If you love your children, enjoy sports, or know anyone who owns or is employed by a small business you should be angry. Very angry. We can absolutely take steps to protect the elderly and vulnerable, but everything should reopen immediately. Millions of high school seniors have been deprived graduations and proms. Millions of high school athletes have lost their spring season. Thousands of NCAA athletes have lost the same. Some will permanently lose their programs altogether due to financial issues associated with the coronavirus response. Your kids are at home when they should be with their teachers and classmates. Your neighbors have been prevented from working and businesses built over decades or generations have been lost or threatened. Absolutely NONE of it was or is necessary.

TRUTH: Nothing will change unless it is demanded. Seriously, take this, repost it, and act on it. It will have to happen nationwide. Call mayors, governors, representatives, senators. Call back the next day. Email them. Email these facts. Verify for yourself which facts you are comfortable utilizing. DO NOT BE LAZY. Call radio stations, TV stations, national news outlets. Send it to medical organizations like the AMA and AAFP. It needs to happen by the thousands. They clearly aren’t paying attention. Or they assume you aren’t.  

ADDENDUM: I would like to address a few of the concerns and criticisms this document has received. I am changing from we to I because I am speaking only for myself. Primary criticism has been either 1) how do we know this is true/qualification issues or 2) it is a political piece. 

The first criticism simply validates one of the main points of the document. This information can be verified and was valid at the time of publication. Most of the time, you were told exactly where you could find it. The complete lack of effort the public has shown to educate themselves about this virus has contributed to the terror it has created. It really shouldn’t matter who wrote it if the information is valid. I am not an epidemiologist, but, for the record, it was reviewed by one and he agreed.

The second criticism I can at least understand. The objective of the paper was not to be political but to recognize the role it plays in behaviors related to the virus. Frankly, I have never been able to successfully explain why we are hearing so much about a virus that doesn’t make most people sick without involving the politics (and I have tried, and that information is also available). However, I may not have done as well as I could have in conveying that. I am not happy with either party’s handling of the issue. I have had political discussions with patients of every race and persuasion and said the same. Both parties have failed us. I haven’t voted for somebody in way too long. I have voted against somebody else. I have told everyone that has to change if we are going to make it. My primary political concerns are reduced health care premiums, lower deductibles, less expensive drugs, lower taxes, taking care of the environment, and smaller government. We should take care of ourselves and each other. It is my opinion, though, that the media and the Democratic party are most responsible for pushing the fear and trying to keep us from reopening the economy. The point of the paper is to suppress fear, dispense information, and reopen the economy. Yesterday (April 21), Texas’ Governor and Lt. Governor called for reopening their state and the country. The article in The Hill goes on to say Texas has nearly 29 million people with 19,458 having tested positive for coronavirus and 495 fatalities. The response of Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa was that they “would put Texans at-risk to enrich themselves and their stock portfolios.” “They would see our family members die to bail out Wall Street,” Hinojosa said. “The lives of our families, our friends, and our communities have no dollar amount. Texas Republicans can no longer claim to be the pro-life party anymore.” You can draw your own conclusions. I based mine on statements such as those.

  

REVISED April 23, 2020. For those who question whether I am truly anti-fear, as opposed to having another agenda, President Trump disagreed “strongly” with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s decisions to reopen certain businesses in his state. I strongly agree with Governor Kemp.

Covid19 Update - April 10th with Dr. Shallenberger

Health Frontiers Radio

COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus Pandemic Update

The CDC’s February 25 warning regarding the emerging threat of a COVID-19 outbreak in the US was chilling indeed: “It is not a matter of if, but when it will spread in US communities, and Americans should prepare for “significant disruption” to their lives as a result”. Little did we know at the time just how disruptive it would be.

Six weeks later it appears that the virus has peaked, but it has taken a devastating toll in terms of lives lost and economic impacts to our worldwide economy.

Join the Health Frontiers Broadcast team as we interview Frank Shallenberger MD, a pioneer of integrative and anti-aging medicine and a respected authority on mitochondrial function and oxygen utilization in the body… something we know is significantly impaired in seriously ill Covid patients. Dr. Shallenberger will share with us the latest information from the front lines of combatting Covid in his patients and share some common sense wisdom on how to thrive during these uncertain times.

We will once again review what is known about the virus, symptoms, treatments and prevention strategies that will serve you well in strengthening your resistance to viral or microbial threats. 

Prevention

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water.

In addition to these avoidance/prevention strategies, the key to surviving and thriving in the face of emerging viral and microbial threats is to do all you can to maximize your health, vitality and natural resistance with a strong and balanced immune system:

  1. Eat a balanced diet of wholesome foods - meats, grains, fruits, nuts and especially vegetables. Avoid refined carbs and processed foods, carbonated sodas, unfermented soy products and GMO grains.
  2. Stay hydrated by drinking pure filtered water.
  3. Get adequate rest and regular moderate exercise.
  4. Take supplements to strengthen organs and detoxification systems, improve digestion, lower inflammation and oxidative stress, and maximize cellular energy potential… which is exactly what the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol is designed to do.
  5. Take supplements that strengthen immunity and help support natural resistance during cold and flu season such as Immunotabs Organic Immune Support, Vitamin C with mixed bioflavonoids, Vitamin D3, and of course Zinc.

Get to know Dr. Shallenberger better by visiting his website or reading the latest and greatest in health news and how to get healthy and stay that way and reverse the aging process.

COVID-19 Pandemic Update and live Q&A

Welcome to the health frontiers radio show and podcast where our goal each week is to empower our listeners to become the champions of their health and their future through education and proper supplementation.  

Health Frontiers Radio

COVID-19 Pandemic Update and Live Q&A

On March 11, COVID-19 was officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, and it is proving to be much more disruptive and deadly than originally thought. Join the Health Frontiers Broadcast team for a live Q&A session as we review what is known about the virus, symptoms, treatments and prevention strategies that will serve you well in strengthening your resistance to viral or microbial threats.

Reported illnesses have ranged from very mild (including some with no reported symptoms) to severe, including illness resulting in death. While information so far suggests that most COVID-19 illness is mild, a recent report out of China suggested that serious illness occurs in 16% of cases. Older people and people of all ages with severe chronic medical conditions — like heart disease, lung disease, and diabetes, for example — seem to be at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness. A CDC Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report that looked at the severity of disease among COVID-19 cases in the United States by age group found that 80% of deaths were among adults 65 years and older with the highest percentage of severe outcomes occurring in people 85 years and older.

The CDC’s recent (2/25) warning regarding the emerging threat of a COVID-19 outbreak in the US was chilling indeed: “It is not a matter of if, but when it will spread in US communities, and Americans should prepare for “significant disruption” to their lives as a result”. The world is anxiously watching the progression of this new virus which is already having far-reaching implications on our economy, travel, schools, and politics.

What is a coronavirus?

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses (including the common cold) so named because of the crown-like features on their surface.

The new COVID-19 virus was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019 and has since spread globally. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these first reported cases had links to a live animal market, suggesting the outbreak started from animal-to-person spread.

Coronaviruses are responsible for two other recent outbreaks: the 2003 SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) outbreak and the 2012 MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) outbreak.

Latest Data on Outbreak

As of March 20th, the number of confirmed cases worldwide was 254,996 and total deaths numbered 10,415 with 87,351 recovered. The virus outbreak seems to be most intense now in Western Europe, and the US has taken unprecedented steps to try to slow down transmission including the temporary closing of schools, restaurants, bars, malls, fitness centers and suspended public meetings of large groups, athletic events, etc.

Johns Hopkins University has created a real-time data tracking web page to track confirmed global COVID-19 cases which may be viewed by clicking this link:

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

What are the symptoms? How does it spread?

Patients with COVID-19 experience mild to severe respiratory illnesses. Symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing and can appear two to 14 days after exposure, according to the CDC.

Around 80 percent of confirmed Chinese cases were mild, the New York Times reported, and the overall fatality rate is around 2.3% in China. Comparatively, the seasonal flu has a mortality rate of about 0.1 percent.

The coronavirus mainly spreads from human to human. Like the common cold, the virus is transmitted when a person coughs or sneezes. It's also possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface with the virus on it before touching their mouth, face or eyes.

For confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases, reported illnesses have ranged from mild symptoms to severe illness and death. Symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath

CDC believes at this time that symptoms of COVID-19 may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. This is based on what has been seen previously as the incubation period of MERS-CoV viruses.

Q: Am I at risk for COVID-19 from a package or product shipping from China?

A: There is still a lot that is unknown about the newly emerged COVID-19 and how it spreads. Two other coronaviruses have emerged previously to cause severe illness in people (MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV). While we don’t know for sure that this virus will behave the same way as SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV, we can use the information gained from both of these earlier coronaviruses to guide us. In general, because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely a very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures. Coronaviruses are generally thought to be spread most often by respiratory droplets. Currently, there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with imported goods and there have not been any cases of COVID-19 in the United States associated with imported goods.

The latest information will be provided on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) website as it becomes available. 

Prevention

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wearing a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings(at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water.

 

In addition to these avoidance/prevention strategies, the key to surviving and thriving in the face of emerging viral and microbial threats is to do all you can to maximize your health, vitality and natural resistance with a strong and balanced immune system:

Could the old generic malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil, Sanofi-Aventis, among others), which is also used for the treatment of rheumatic disease, be an essential treatment for COVID-19?

This hypothesis, put forward by some, including Professor Didier Raoult of the IHU Méditerranée Infection in Marseille, was dismissed by other eminent infectious disease specialists and dismissed as fake news recently by the Ministry of Health.

Yet it resurfaced yesterday with the presentation on YouTube by Prof Raoult of positive results in a non-randomized, unblinded trial of 24 patients.

This follows encouraging in vitro results obtained by a Chinese team led by Xueting Yao, from Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing, China, which were published online by the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases on March 9th. However, the data were deemed insufficient by the infection community to recommend the compound as a treatment.

Moreover, chloroquine is not listed among the four treatments studied as part of the recently launched European clinical trial piloted by Inserm, which includes 3200 severe hospitalized patients, including 800 French patients.

Chloroquine was ruled out due to the risk of interactions with other medications for common comorbidities in infected patients, and because of possible adverse effects in patients undergoing resuscitation.

The Marseille Study

The European Union Clinical Trials Register shows that the Marseille study was accepted on 5th March by the National Medicines Safety Agency (ANSM). It could include up to 25 COVID-19 positive patients, comprising five aged 12–17 years, 10 aged 18–64 years, and 10 more aged 65 years or over.

While the data have not yet been published, and should, therefore, be interpreted with caution, this non-randomized, unblinded study showed a strong reduction in viral load with hydroxychloroquine.

After 6 days, the percentage of patients testing positive for COVID-19 who received hydroxychloroquine fell to 25% versus 90% for those who did not receive the treatment (a group of untreated COVID-19 patients from Nice and Avignon).

In addition, comparing untreated patients, those receiving hydroxychloroquine and those given hydroxychloroquine plus the antibiotic azithromycin, the results showed there was "a spectacular reduction in the number of positive cases" with the combination therapy, said Prof Raoult.

At 6 days, among patients given combination therapy, the percentage of cases still carrying SRAS-CoV-2 was no more than 5%.

Back to the Future - Personalized Medicine

Health Frontiers Radio
Back to the Future - Personalized Medicine 
 
Gone are the days when the family physician knew everything about you and your entire family history, your diet and lifestyle choices, and even the skeletons in your family closet!  All too often, patients today are treated as a set of impersonal data points and symptoms that are to be targeted and masked with drugs - with no regard to the underlying causes of the symptoms. Medicine has become so specialized that sadly, most physicians simply don’t have the time, training or desire to investigate their patients’ diet and the multitude of exposures that influence our health so profoundly. 

Today we peer behind the curtain of Personalized Medicine with two cutting edge practitioners who take a holistic approach to patient assessment and treatment - our very own Dr. Chris Meletis (world-renowned Naturopathic Physician) and the extraordinary Al Fusco (Certified Clinical Nutritionist/Therapist and Wellness Coordinator who has served patients alongside grateful medical doctors for decades).  Join us for a fascinating discussion with these modern-day “Disease Detectives” who believe that alternative 'natural' medicine, for most health problems, should be the logical first choice in health care. You will be stunned by the clinical insights they share as we examine the methods they employ to assess health challenges and foster life transformation in their patients.

The Dangers of Soy

The fact that unfermented soy is widely regarded as a health food in the US is a perfect example of how a brilliant marketing strategy can fool millions. However, the thousands of studies published on soy reveal that the risks of consuming unfermented soy products far outweigh any possible benefits. Join our broadcast team to learn about one of the deadliest deceptions in history - the insidious takeover of our food (and especially the health food) industry by the soy industry.

Here is just a sampling of the health effects that have been linked to soy consumption:

  • Breast cancer
  • Brain damage
  • Infant abnormalities
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Kidney stones
  • Immune system impairment
  • Severe, potentially fatal food allergies
  • Impaired fertility
  • Danger during pregnancy and nursing

 

Top Reasons to Avoid Unfermented Soy 

  1. Over 90% of soy grown in the US is genetically modified
  2. GM soy is linked to an exponential increase in allergies
  3. GM soy has been positively linked with causing infertility
  4. Unfermented soy contains natural toxins known as “anti-nutrients” (phytates, saponins, oxalates, protease inhibitors, estrogens, and goitrogens) which interfere with our hormones and our ability to absorb minerals and digest protein.
  5. Soy contains hemagglutinin, a clot promoting substance that impairs absorption and distribution of oxygen to the tissues.
  6. Because of the way unfermented soy is processed, it contains toxic levels of aluminum and manganese.
  7. Infants fed soy formula have up to 20,000 times the estrogen in circulation as breastfed babies.

List of Unfermented Soy Foods to AVOID:

  • Tofu
  • TVP (texturized vegetable protein) or soy protein isolate
  • Soybean oil
  • Soymilk
  • Soy cheese, soy ice cream, soy yogurt
  • Soy "meat" (meatless products made of TVP)
  • Soy protein
  • Edamame
  • Soy infant formula

Fermented Soy is a Completely Different Story!

Fermented soy has been used for centuries in Asian cultures, and the health benefits associated with fermented soy are numerous… thanks in large part to its high vitamin K2 content.  Vitamin K2 is a vital nutrient in preventing cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cognitive decline, and protecting against various cancers including lung, prostate, leukemia and liver cancer.

The long history of safe and beneficial consumption of soy is based upon a long fermentation process which greatly reduces the anti-nutrient levels and allows the beneficial properties of soy to be realized.

So, by all means, enjoy the health-promoting and taste-enhancing properties of fermented soy which are available in the following:

  • Natto (fermented soybeans with a sticky texture and strong, cheese-like flavor
  • Miso (a fermented soybean paste with a salty, buttery texture commonly used in miso soup)
  • Tempeh (a fermented soybean cake with a firm texture and nutty, mushroom flavor)
  • Soy Sauce (made by fermenting soybeans, salt, and enzymes)

CAUTION - Many varieties of soy sauce are made artificially using a chemical process

Keto here, keto there, keto everywhere!

Keto here, keto there, keto keto everywhere!  It seems that everyone is talking about ketosis and the many benefits of a ketogenic diet. It is being hyped for everything from cancer prevention and treatment to morbid obesity and Type 2 diabetes. But is it really safe and effective? Not for everyone - and typically not as a long term health strategy.

However, as we will see, ketosis has its place as a valuable health-promoting strategy for the right persons and under appropriate supervision.

Join us as Dr. Chris Meletis, John Lehner, John Burgstiner and Glenn Edenfield once again welcome Al Fusco to our broadcast team to discuss the benefits and risks associated with ketogenic diets. Learn the facts regarding ketosis and how it can be a powerful strategy for weight loss and health transformation when properly monitored and with proper supplementation.

The team also examines and discusses the Kestasis Protocol from Logos Nutritionals which combines the benefits of a ketogenic diet and lifestyle with the concept of homeostasis (a state of balance or equilibrium within the body which Logos has pioneered with the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol over the last 25 years).

The Role of Nutraceuticals in Health Care

Welcome to the health frontiers radio show and podcast where each week our goal is to empower our listeners to become the champions of their health and their future through education and proper supplementation.

Al Fusco is a wellness coordinator, working with patients promoting proper nutrition and lifestyle. He has found with the use of nutraceuticals that most individuals, particularly those taking multiple prescription drugs for chronic conditions, fare better in the long-run when those drugs can be reduced or eliminated. He is not against prescription medication, as there are times when it is appropriate to use a medication, however, the majority of chronic body problems such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, low thyroid, high blood pressure, and cholesterol can be managed successfully without the use of potentially harmful drugs or un-warranted surgery - if given a chance. He routinely works with a patient’s medical doctor, in an integrative manner, sharing test results and formulating a plan designed to adjust, if possible, their medication.

He is an analytical thinker and compassionate nutritionist that has helped thousands of patients find the answers and regain back their healthy lives. True wellness is possible. He has seen almost every named medical condition. Here is just a partial list: autoimmune disease - Lupus, RA, MS; Cancer; HIV/AIDS; ADD/ADHD; liver and gall bladder conditions; arthritis; weight issues; hypothyroid, Hashimoto's disease; hyperthyroid, Grave's disease; stress, depression, anxiety; male/female hormones; gastritis/Gerd; Lyme disease; and many other health challenges.

He has practiced alternative functional therapies for over 43 years and has a passion for helping people - treating every patient as he would treat himself. He has in-depth knowledge of and is a recognized expert in diagnosis, clinical nutrition, vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal therapies, and weight management and exercise. He believes that alternative 'natural' medicine, for most health problems, should be the logical first choice in health care. The reason being is that if dietary and lifestyle modification, along with targeted nutritional supplementation and exercise can’t handle the problem then there is always the medical option to fall-back on. This sequencing makes more sense because you can’t undo a surgery once performed or completely reverse the damage done by long-term pharmaceutical drug use.

 Al Fusco is a “disease detective” who will help you discover the real and underlying "why" behind your specific health challenge.  The goal with each patient is to discover the precise dietary, physiologic and/or structural imbalance - that is the root cause of their health problem. Most medical issues are a direct result of long-term aberrations in both diet and lifestyle. With proper identification and correction, the body will do exactly what it was designed to do - achieve vibrant and lasting health.

Health Frontiers Radio - The importance of the gut biome and the link between Re-flux, PPI's and Cancer.

A Surgeon’s Perspective: Health Begins in the Gut!

Today we are thrilled and blessed to speak with Christopher C. Smith, MD, FACS, a board-certified general surgeon that has practiced in Albany GA since 1983. A native of Tifton, Georgia, Dr. Smith earned a B.S. degree from the University of Georgia, and then earned a Medicine doctorate degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta.

Dr. Smith is one of the pioneers of laparoscopic surgery and Albany Surgical/Southern Surgery Center serves as a worldwide center of excellence for robotic surgery, bariatric weight loss surgery and alternatives, and cutting-edge reflux treatments such as Nissen and Linx procedures along with many other types of general surgery. 

Dr. Smith long ago distinguished himself as a brilliant surgeon, but his lifelong fascination with the role of nutrition and exercise in health certainly sets him apart from his peers. His patients love the fact that he sees surgery as the last option to address their health challenges, and only after dietary and lifestyle interventions have failed to produce the desired outcome.

He believes as we do that good health begins and ends in the gut with a healthy gut biome, and his adoring patients are living proof of this truth. Dr. Smith is indeed a rare gem in the world of modern medicine.  We look forward to hearing his incredible insights to Reflux, PPI's and the Link to Cancer.

Inflammation - Blessing and Curse

Although in ancient times it was recognized as being part of the healing process, up until the end of the 19th century, inflammation was viewed as being an undesirable response that was harmful to the host. Since then, we have come to appreciate the crucial role inflammation plays in protecting the body from injury as well as its destructive role in chronic illness.  We know today that inflammation is far more complex than it might first appear, and that it is intimately tied to the immune system's response to injury or infection.  Read the full article HERE.   Join Dr. Chris Meletis and team as they reveal the pro's and con's of Inflammation and the natural remedies to win the battle against chronic inflammation.

Fasting - The Physician Within

Dr. Meletis and the Health Frontiers team continue last week's discussion on detoxification strategies to address the proper use of coffee enemas, colonics etc. and tackle the fascinating world of fasting. Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy; nature's ancient universal remedy for many problems.  After many years of personal and clinical experience with the healing and detoxifying benefits of fasting, many believe that it is the missing link in Western medicine.  Others speak of the weight loss or spiritual transforming potential associated with fasting. Animals instinctively fast when they are ill.  Today we will take a look at nutritional fasting types and methods, benefits and hazards. Dr. Chris Meletis also shares about Manzano and the risks of GMO food.

Dr. Meletis and team discuss Strong Bones - The Ultimate Anti-Aging Strategy

One of the defining benchmarks of the aging process is the progressive movement of calcium and other minerals out of the bone (demineralization) and into the soft tissues of the body (calcification). Before we can understand the link between weak bones and aging, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, calcification, hormonal imbalances and a host of other ailments, we need to first understand the critical roles our bones play in our health.  

Contrary to popular belief, most Americans with bone loss do not have diets that are grossly deficient in calcium. What they do have is impaired calcium absorption due in large part to magnesium deficiency.  The National Osteoporosis Foundation's calls osteoporosis a "major public health threat for an estimated 44 million Americans or 55 percent of the people 50 years of age or older." It is a "silent disease" that progresses without any outward sign until a sufferer has a fracture. The problem is growing exponentially as the baby boomer generation enters its golden years. The good news is that osteoporosis is absolutely preventable and to some extent reversible through proper diet, activity, and proper supplementation.

Doctor Chris Meletis and team reveal the secrets of heart health

Chris Meletis explains that, the oxidation of LDL in the blood and on the artery wall plays a key role in the formation of atherosclerosis. LDL particles carry cholesterol from the liver to the peripheral cells, including the cells that line the arteries, and this is called the forward cholesterol transport system. Low antioxidant status of the blood and LDL particles, and other sources of oxidative stress, cause oxidative modifications to LDL by free radicals. Immune system cells, the macrophages, recognize the modified LDL cholesterol particles and engulf them. Eventually, further modifications convert this fused particle into a foam cell. Foam cell buildup in the arteries and the microcirculatory system cause bulges and streaks in the artery wall that we call atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries.

John Lehner and John Burgstiner reveal that proper supplementation with a key group of antioxidants can help stop LDL oxidation from occurring and are therefore a critical component of any heart health regimen along with regular, interval training.  It's key to exercise at a pace your body can keep up with, whatever state that may be from young and competitive to older with joint and muscle concerns.  

John Burgstiner and Glenn Edenfield explain the benefits of Logos Nutritionals Heart Health Pack, which includes:  Essential Omegas, Magnifical, Magnifizyme and Ubinol CoQ10.  Buy one Heart Health pack and receive a free bottle of Nitro Complex which helps oxygenate the blood and increase HGH.  Enter coupon code hearthelp at checkout.

The Thymus Gland - Master Gland of Immunity

Wake Up Your Thymus! The thymus gland lies just beneath the breast bone. Often referred to as the "Master Gland of Immunity", it is large in infants and children and atrophies as we grow older.  Lower thymic hormone levels in the blood are associated with depressed immunity and are typical of the elderly, individuals with chronic infections, auto-immune disorders, cancer, and AIDS patients. Whatever the cause, depressed immunity can lead to an increase in the frequency and severity of colds, fatigue, allergies, or the onset of opportunistic infections. As your thymus shrinks and weakens with age, the most effective and direct way to stimulate it is by consuming thymus tissue. 

Start boosting your immune system today with our special offer of buying one bottle of Complete Thymic formula and getting one half off. Just enter thymushelp at check out.
