What does Vitamin B-12 Deficiency Look Like?

On Dr. Joseph Mercola's site today, he discussed B-12 Deficiency. You can go to the address below for the whole article. I pasted an excerpt below, also, and will comment on H Pylori, which by the time a person is 80, 40% are infected by this parasitic bacterium we contract mainly from cats, but also from dogs. H Pylori is only one of the reasons people become Vitamin B-12 deficient.

I promote a balanced approach to B vitamins, and using a natural complex vs. high doses of B's that can imbalance the rest. The H Pylori lives in the esophagus and stomach, and can be tested for with swallowing a held string, and culturing it. Medical docs usually give a couple of antibiotics for H-Pylori. Some are resistent to them. There is an acid in olive oil that can help to kill or decrease their numbers, so use liberally in salads and cooking, but I would turn to MMS which creates no resistance, and goes after blood-borne pathogens. (I will add a link later).

I like Shaklee's B Complex, which is made from a plant source, not animal, and is balanced, natural, and tested for contaminants. Their Vita Lea is my choice also of a multivitamin, and is coated in folic acid, so it unravels in the stomach where it's needed for absorption, not bound up in some synthetic bedpan bullet. It also has biotin in it which keeps Candida from growing to the fungal form. Candida is a normal resident in our intestines, but if it becomes imbalanced by antibiotics, birth control pills, hormones, medications, and an acidic environment, it can become a health hazard leading to urinary tract infections, yeast infections, prostate problems, allergies and cancer.

After treating H Pylori, I would recommend the following protocol:
Any antibiotic means killing good bacteria. To repopulate the 'gut' with bididus, lactobacillus, etc., use a good probiotic. I recommend Optiflora, a triple encased 'pearl' that actually gets past the hydrochloric acid of the stomach, to repopulate the colon with good bacteria.

If you don't go the medical route with antibiotics, in my researched opinion, I would do the 18 day Hulda Clark parasite cleanse, then MMS, then the gentle Colon Cleanse (request by email: pamcohenmsw@gmail.com), and then make sure you are on your own health program: good diet, exercise with 20-30 min. of sun, and natural food supplements. There are good, better and best in this department, dependent on your budget. We do not get all the nutrients we need from our diets, and when we are deficient, our bodies need more to catch up.
A Wellness Survey is sent by request, to show deficiencies in nutrients by symptomology. (pamcohenmsw@gmail.com)

Here's the address for Mercola's B-12 article:

“Vitamin B12 fuels many of your body’s most important functions, literally from your head to your feet. Among them:
proper food digestion and absorption
healthy nervous system function
formation of red blood cells
proper circulation
healthy immune system function
mood regulation
mental clarity, concentration, memory function
Your body was simply not built to function without a sufficient supply of vitamin B12 throughout its lifetime. I can’t overemphasize the importance of insuring you are getting adequate B12.
What are the Odds YOU are B12 Deficient?
The above article primarily addresses B12 deficiency in the elderly, but you shouldn’t assume you are not at risk just because you’re under a certain age or eat foods containing vitamin B12.
It’s true if you’re over 50 or a vegan/vegetarian, your chances of being vitamin B12 deficient are higher than average. But no matter your age or diet, if your body isn’t absorbing the B12 you’re giving it, you, too, could be lacking in this vitally important nutrient.
Surprising Causes of Vitamin B12 Deficiency
Since vitamin B12 is present in natural form only in animal sources of food, strict vegetarians and vegans are very high on the list of those who can expect to be B12 deficient.
Other sources of vitamin B12 deficiency include:
Inadequate production of stomach acid -- The older you are, the less able your stomach is to produce the hydrochloric acid necessary to release B12 from the food you eat.
Long-term use of antacid/antiulcer drugs -- Since hydrochloric acid is a requirement for the absorption of vitamin B12, it follows that if you’re taking an antacid, your stomach won’t be able to digest B12 out of your food. This class of drugs includes H2-receptor antagonists like Zantac and Tagamet, and proton pump inhibitors like Nexium and Prilosec.
Use of the drug metformin for Type 2 diabetes -- Use of metformin (brand names include Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Fortamet, Riomet, and Glumetza) may inhibit your B12 absorption, especially at higher doses.
Infection with H. pylori bacteria -- If you suffer from a chronic Helicobacter pylori infection, you might be B12 deficient.
Coffee consumption -- Four or more cups of coffee a day can reduce your B vitamin stores by as much as 15 percent.
Gastric bypass surgery
Exposure to nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
And the LEADING cause of vitamin B12 deficiency: food-cobalamin malabsorption syndrome -- This condition results when your stomach lining loses its ability to produce intrinsic factor, a protein that binds to vitamin B12 and allows your body to absorb it into your bloodstream at the end of your small intestine.”

Ripples on the Lake. September 11th and more...

A few days ago I heard from some fellow lake walkers, that the Vernonia Lake Park Host, Bill Yeo saw a cougar down by the sewer ponds, on the trail going to Anderson park. Another walker friend had seen one between Rose and First Streets when he moved in several years ago. We are a pocket in the woods, here in Vernonia. Coyotes roam at night, rabbits hide in the briars, eagles and ospreys hunt on the lake. Deer frequent my back yard at times, and tonight on the way home from a trip to 'the valley' (Banks, Forest Grove, Cornelius, Hillsboro and Beaverton) I spotted two deer at the Museum on Bridge Street. They were pretty things. One was in the front yard, and another in the back. Where there are deer, there are usually predators.

This news made me a little leery about walking by myself. I have a new walking partner, and I'd much rather wait for company when going around the lake.

In other news, the gas prices are up around $3 a gallon, and the food prices are squeezing families all over this nation. There is a sense of dread and anxiety, especially as credit card debt grows, jobs are lost, pensions are cut or lost, and foreclosures grow. The haves and have nots are farther apart it seems. There are more predators than cougars in these parts. The petro dollar, greed of a few, and those hungry for world domination are ruining our country. Many Americans have been apathetic for a long time. Freedoms have to be treasured and valued, not taken for granted.

I watched a senior citizen on YouTube speak of the proposed healthcare plan. He said instead of knee and hip replacements, cancer and heart treatments, the elderly will instead be given 'death counseling'. He said "Shame on you", and reminded those that we have trusted to serve in government that he started working for 25 cents an hour, and was proud of what he did, and he started putting money into Social Security, which system has been looted, along with Medicare. He reminded the young and those in power that they are there, because of the elderly. They stand on the backs and shoulders of what he and others have worked for.

Here is the result of other research I have done lately. It is worth discussing:
There is free energy out there, that has been kept from mankind. We are about 100 years behind where we should be, according to Dr. Steven Greer, who is speaking all over the world, sharing his Disclosure Project, that we have had contact from other planets and our government has known for years. He trains thousands of people to communicate telepathically to Extra-terrestrials, and then tapes the 'visits'. Listen to him on YouTube. Put his name in the search box. There is an era of peace and evolution coming, that cannot be stopped. Not by secretive shadow governments, the Bilderbergs that have unlawfully and illegally met with our world leaders, including the Clintons and Obama, all buddies, all thinking they are protected, elite and apart from mankind. The plots and plans of martial law, fake induced bio-wars and pandemics with looming forced vaccines, Blackhawk or Blackwater? and Northcom secret armies which we have financed unknowingly by the billions are all on record. WHO and UN plots to reduce the population to 500 million, mind control, television brainwashing, chemtrails dumping barium and other chemicals to thin a population that believe in a Race against Breast Cancer, and wearing pink ribbons, lab-created swine/avian flu strains, along with the HIV virus they already put into Hepatitis vaccines which were given to men in New York and Africa. September 11th was an inside job, and the proof of chemicals used to set the charges to bring the buildings down is documented, including building WTC#7 not hit by any plane, and announced by the BBC news about 20 min. before it actually happened. Criminals are bumblers, too. It's all there on the alternative news and internet and YouTube accounts. The problem has been many do not want to be bothered, or want to know. "Someone" will do something about it.

With a planned economic collapse, and an orchestrated need for martial law, a New World Order will be pushed on the peoples of the earth. Our government has been hijacked by the Federal Reserve and it's banker/Bilderberg cohorts, getting rid of any in their way, like John F. Kennedy. Once martial law is in force, no one will be allowed to leave the country except perhaps the privileged. On YouTube you can see actual footage that there are FEMA internment camps all over America, stacks of plastic multi-corpse coffins, cement rooms with gas lines to them, and the National Guard is being given job offers for internment camp work. You can see the actual job notices filmed on YouTube. Even weather can be orchestrated and used as a disaster weapon. I watched a Congressman read a bill for martial law under a list of circumstances, and most of it was "classified", with blurbs like "flesh-eating virus", etc.

What has happened to Americans, who like the frog in the pot of water, have reached a deadly degree of apathy and laziness? We have allowed our families and selves to be drugged by the Pharmaceutical pimps, who have created a symbiotic parasitical bond with our 'trusted' medical personnel. Trust is earned, not given. Rational trust has no place in what has transpired. Our food has been so processed and adulterated, irradiated, imported with DDT that was banned here, but sold for profit in other countries growing our fruits and vegetables, and even small-brained chickens refuse to eat the GMO grains offered them, but we have fed our children Aspartame in soft drinks and 99% of gum, and a huge list of foods, high fructose corn syrup, and other 'convenient' chemical cocktails to cause obesity, diabetes, and cancer.

I was at the dentist a while back, and the hygienist told me that there was flouride in the white fillings. She said she was for flouridating the water, so the level could be controlled. Some areas have too much flouride she said, and the children get flouridosis or flourosis that shows on their teeth. Who asked me if I wanted an industrial waste, a poison permanently placed in my mouth, to bleed into my body on a continual basis, for my immune system to fight? How is that 'controlled' exposure? The mercury in amalgams is bad enough. What is causing all the osteoporosis in this country? It seems to me, we run our own story of The Emperor's New Clothes. Even chicken farmers take the chlorine out of the water for their 'investment', so the poor birds live long enough without arteriosclerosis and other disease, to produce enough eggs for a profit.

Why are so many systems of our country dysfunctional? Where are our true leaders? I voted for Ron Paul, not some poor embarrassing thug like George Bush, or a young 'unknown' groomed Obama, whom I heard recently encouraging Americans to accept the 'findings' of 9-11. What is sad, is having a ballot without a third choice: NONE OF THE ABOVE. TRY AGAIN.

On this September 11th, I'm posting this to say we are in dire straits. Break the televisions, or use them only for selected DVD's and videos. Cancel the service. You are getting controlled news anyway, and do you really want your children to act like the characters creating our supposed social 'norms', or think taking the plethora of drugs pushed, is an American way of life? Do you know how many are on Coumadin? The right flu shot, and they can hemorrhage inside. Some side effects of this now well-used rat poison are blood clots, gangrene and cognitive decline. See:


Coumadin Side Effects Poll Results
Have you experienced side effects?
Yes, Severe 95%
Yes, Mild 5%
Yes, Minor 0%
No 1%

HRT causes blood clots. Garlic thins the blood, and fish oil makes the RBC's slippery so they don't stick together, and relaxes the blood vessel walls. No side effects. No body ever had a deficiency in Medications, but vitamins, minerals, protein, essential fatty acids and complex carbohydrates are another story... Medications deplete your nutrients and set you up for disease. We have become a 7-11 generation. We want instant gratification. Medical doctors have been enablers, and have profited with their 'scrips'.
Americans are the most constipated nation, with our diets of dairy and meat, which are full of saturated fats, hormones and antibiotics and no fiber.
Looking to normalize your cholesterol? Use Shaklee's Fiber Plan to pull out cholesterol, Herb Lax to get rid of toxins, and Soy Protein which will help normalize your LDL/HDL ratios and maintain blood sugar levels.
My uninvited, and unapologized-for suggestions:
Don't get toxic vaccines or allow your kids to get them. Get informed, and stop being lazy, riding on the backs of others, and contributing to the downfall of our entire nation. Exercise every day and get some dignity and oxygen back into your brains and bodies. Check out eating with whole foods, like recipes on www.101cookbooks.com. Stop buying processed foods and fast foods, and spend time with family and neighbors. Get a little garden growing, even if it's in pots, or sprouting grains. Start reading in books and on the internet. Get a hobby. Learn a new language or take up dancing.

Don't be used to harm others by being ignorant. WE ARE MEANT TO BE A PROTECTOR TO OUR FELLOW HUMANS. NO CALLING IS HIGHER THAN THIS. LOOK AT A BABY'S FACE AND SEE YOUR OWN HEART. WE ARE BEINGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT. Think in ways of including others, and helping others, and making your life count. Make this world better because you have been here. Make it a more hopeful world. What we do impacts not only those around us, but our entire nation, planet and solar system. Absorbed consumerism is not happiness. Chemical and sexual addictions don't allow for joy. We need you to be AVAILABLE. People need you. Wake up America!

Postscript: We have lost a great humanitarian. Dr. Hulda Clark, a well-known scientist and researcher who unselfishly gave her life and intellectual property to others, has died. She showed many that parasites in human hosts wear down the immune system and can cause cancer. She also did work on AZO dyes, which were outlawed in the 50's, but still remain in various products including white caps for teeth, and hair dyes, and was searching for and creating natural hair dyes for women without the aluminum and other harmful metals and chemicals. She said aluminum was absorbed within seconds into the brain. Many are suffering and dying from Alzheimer's. She also tested over 3000 of her patients for about 70 parasites. She said she never met anyone with cancer who did not have parasites. She also said everyone with Diabetes, had the pancreatic fluke, or Eurytrema. Her simple remedy using 3 herbal ingredients: cloves, wormwood and green Black walnut hull in a tincture or freeze-dried, treated 100 different types of parasites, and was affordable for most of mankind. You can find it on www.onelifeusa.com for about $16.99 plus shipping. It's an 18 day cleanse. MMS is a good mop-up cleanse also, that is from another selfless individual, Jim Humble, who found that sodium chlorite when activated with citric acid, killed most blood-born pathogens. He has been instrumental in curing thousands of cases of malaria with two treatments. Malaria is caused by a parasite injected into the human body by a mosquito.
After killing parasites and pathogens, one must detox gently, and then build the immune system with food....supplements. With our diets, lifestyles of stress and lack of exercise, most people have some serious educating and cellular rebuilding to do.

Business Note: There are only a few AirSource3000 air filters left. When winter flus, mold, virus and bacteria hit, I am glad the UV plate on my AirSource3000 has the capacity to draw them out of the air and kill them. Contact me for close-out information. Not available after Oct. 1st, or when supplies are gone.

Air Filter Comparisons. Clean Air Pt II

Here is a comparison chart for Air Filters. Though it's from 2001, it's still usable, although the Member price is $611, and modules are $60. Contact me for a special closeout offer from my business leader. leangreencafe@yahoo.com

Perhaps the best way to figure out if purchasing an air or water filter is right for you, is to read reviews. I've read and heard great reviews for Shaklee's AirSource3000, and have borrowed one a few times, until I just purchased my own. The friend who owns one has had hers for approx. 9 years. The proof is in results, and how people feel, especially those with allergies and asthma, and how the air smells.

I put the AirSource 3000 in a friend's car overnight as he had smoked in it, and his dog had been in it. It smelled like a new car the next day. A room I rented out, smelled like a locker room. AirSource cleaned it right up. The fruit room downstairs can smell moldy, and the UV plate on AirSource kills the mold. I like the 3000 sq. ft. capacity of the AirSource, and that I can use it to spot clean small areas.

Cleaning carpet, inside car surfaces, etc. with Basic H and Basic G (cleaner/deodorizer/disinfectant) applied separately, would be advisable, if necessary. For instance, a pet box that needs changing, or dirty carpet or brown film from nicotine, or dusting and vaccuming all need to be addressed to maintain fresh air, as they generate smells, but the odor, mold and dust-killing capacity of the AirSource is remarkable.

(Basic G is mixed 3/8 tsp to a pint bottle of water. It costs 27cents a gallon, $17.30 qt. bottle of concentrate, Member pricing.)
Tough on Germs
Bacteria, fungi, and viruses can wreak havoc on your family's health and safety. Used as directed, Basic-G tackles over 40 of these pesky microbes, including several animal viruses. That makes it an excellent choice for use in the kitchen, bathroom, or pet area. In addition to being economical - one quart makes up to 64 gallons - it's also EPA registered.
(Clorox has approx. 6% sodium hypochlorite, and purportedly, contains lye, which for grooming pets can make them very ill. Basic G is a better alternative.)

There is a small amount of ozone generated from this model, but it is EPA approved. I want to research more about ozone, as I've read about it being used to oxygenate blood to fight cancer, and I've seen a cleanse using olive oil call for ozonating it first. They used fish tank equipment to do it.

There are only a small amount left in inventory. After October 1st, Shaklee will no longer offer AirSource 3000, but will still service the unit for 3 years. I'll buy several extra UV plate modules for the annual replacement, and the protective carrying case, as I will probably loan it out to help others. After another flood last year in Vernonia, where I live, the black mold from sweating winter windows in temporary trailers, along with dust and spores floating everywhere as people cleaned out soggy fiberglass insulation, lumber and furniture, etc. made many people very sick. Antibiotics don't do much for fungus in the lungs. Everyone here could have used an AirSource3000 for their homes, and especially with the stuff that got tracked into the relief centers.

Basics: Clean Air and Water in your Home

I read the following article this morning from Dr. Mercola: Link below...


In this Mercola Newsletter article, Dr. Mercola warns against wasting money in areas that are unnecessary, that hurt the wallet.
His list includes: Extended Warranties, Gym Fees, Fast Food Runs, Cell Phone Apps and Ringtones, Late fees, Landline Extras, Rental Car Insurance, Computer Software, Unlimited Texting, and…..
“10. Bottled Water
Invest in a filter pitcher or install an inexpensive faucet filter. You’ll still come out ahead.”

Since the charcoal-carbon filtered pitchers and faucet filters make acidic water, I want to share with you my Point-of-Use Water Filter. The casing is made with Surgical Stainless Steel, and it uses a large filter of coconut shell medium. The resulting 22 cents a gallon for the first 1000 gallons, and 9 cents for the next 1000 gallons, (Replacement filter costs $90.80 Member Price) gives me alkaline water, with almost 100% reduction in chlorine, volatile organic chemicals, crystosporidium cysts and gardia, etc.

When I tested the Brita Filter, Culligan water, and Reverse Osmosis, they were more acidic than plain tap water. Reverse Osmosis is good if the water is flouridated, but it is acidic water.

Every morning, I run my cold water in the kitchen for a couple of minutes, and then I pull the diverter button on the faucet to filter my water. After another 1-2 minutes, I fill up a freshly washed gallon jar with wonderfully clean water. I feel spoiled. During the day, I can tell how much water I’m drinking, and I know that I’m not absorbing some (estrogen) hormone-mimicking Bisphenol A from plastic. Since the regulations of bottled water are the same as tap water, I politely say, NO THANKS. I am also not contributing to global warming with the shipment of water from some other place, or filling landfills or oceans with plastic bottles.

Since I’m a single gal, and 1000 gallons will mean about 3 years of use for me, from my $220 investment, I have shared a gallon of clean water most mornings in the summer with my visiting birds, in my bird bath. They LOVE it! I clean the bath out with a few drops of my Shaklee Dish drops, rinse it, and give them wonderfully clean water. I spoil my birds -especially the frantic parents running nurseries from various bird houses on my place. I watch them drink the water, and younger red-winged blackbirds, etc. splish-splash happily in the birdbath.

There is an on-counter unit which I have, and an under-counter Bestwater Water Filter available. I chose the on-counter, as it doesn’t involve connection by a plumber. (Undercounter unit is $283.20 Member Price –$19.95 1-time Membership) I feel like I’m in the 70’s, but my body appreciates less toxins. Chlorine as you may know, contributes to metabolic acidosis, clogging our blood vessels and tipping us towards cancer and disease. Even chicken farmers filter out chlorine for their flock, to get their money’s worth, instead of having their egg producers croak before their time.

It's not only the chlorine that is toxic to us, but its byproducts that cause cancer. Bestwater takes them out, so we don't have to add them to our immune systems to handle.

“The compact design of the countertop model takes up little space on your counter, but belies its impressive capacity to produce up to 1,000 gallons of filtered, great-tasting water. It's certified by NSF International to significantly reduce dissolved lead and over 40 volatile organic compounds that may be in your water. And like the RO System II, it reduces cryptosporidium cysts, which have been recognized as one of the most common causes of waterborne diseases within humans in the U.S. (According to the CDC*).
This advanced carbon filtration system installs easily, providing instant, clean, delicious water for just pennies a day. The MTS2000 system is ideal for the majority of homes with municipal water supplies. It carries a Five-Year Warranty.
*Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”

For a limited time: 30 days or until the stock is gone, Shaklee’s AirSource Air Filter is being offered by my Business Leader for a great price. I’ll post the comparisons with other air filters. Though the ten year technology is considered old technology, it works and is most cost effective for whole house or spot treating cars, rental property after moveouts, etc.
Once they are out of stock, they are gone, though the annual UV plate module will be available afterwards. ASK FOR DETAILS. leangreencafe@yahoo.com
For Asthma Sufferers: Clean Air, Non-toxic cleaners which don’t trigger asthma attacks and natural food supplements are the solutions to rid yourself of this problem. Drugs all have side effects. If you build the immune system and take away the toxic triggers, you will find natural solutions.
