Immune Boosting and Winter Wellness
First, a personal note and items of business: This is the color scheme I have played with this summer, and will finish in the spring, when the paint won't bubble with the Autumn moisture here in the 'Pocket in the Woods'. This photo reminds me of my Blueberry box still waiting to be constructed, the Birdhouses that I'm going to seal so they'll last longer, and other Autumn tasks that wonder where I have been.
Last night I went to dinner for my 55th birthday, had halibut at Stanford's, and saw Julie/Julia which I loved. Don't be surprised if I share more of the recipes I try, and maybe sneak in a few poems or other projects amid the health and nutrition pieces.
I recently listened to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua, who is a Molecular and Cellular Microbiologist, a tumor researcher, and has a business helping people overcome cancer. She told of a woman who came to her with breast cancer, that had metasticized into her brain, lung and pelvis who was given 3 months to live. Dr. Bevacqua started this woman on nutrients from Shaklee, and 6 months later, her cancer had not grown, and she was still on the planet. It was not until she began using Citriboost which has the pre and probiotic in it (must refrigerate after opening) and the Optiflora pearl which is the probiotic (no refrigeration needed, as it's triple encapsulated) that the cancer began to disappear.
It seems the immune system prioritizes the digestive area, and needs the flora to become rebalanced so it can focus on other areas of the body. Every tumor receded and left except for one small spot in the pelvis. This story does not end well. The woman had 'friends' that convinced her she did not need Shaklee products, saying they were too expensive, etc., and she quit taking them. This woman also resumed eating her simple carb diet with sugars. The cancer returned, and she died.
What Dr. Bevacqua found was the Citriboost swished and gargled, and swallowed in the oral cavity, helped the head, mouth, throat, esophagus, down to the stomach, building the integrity of the mucusal tissue, while the Optiflora repopulated and balanced the flora in the colon, as it gets past the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. Dr. B said this Citriboost/Optiflora combo was wonderful for Candida symptoms of vertigo, thrush, itching or ringing ears, sinusitis and sore throats, and even was helpful for hiatal hernias, while the Optiflora built the immune system from the stomach down into the colon.
Current research is showing Candida is allowed to survive, or is protected or covered by heavy metals, making it difficult to get rid of it. Candida can evolve into the fungal form and travel almost anywhere in the body. It causes a host of problems, including depression and spacy thinking, and can interfere with the immune system, promoting cancer.
I listened to an RN who has a business of testing blood and urine for heavy metals concur with this. She said one source of poisoning was: many mattresses need to be covered or encapsulated to prevent gases and flame retardent chemicals that produce heavy metal poisoning from being absorbed into the skin and lungs, etc. Pre and post-testing have absolutely proven these problems and the solutions. Chelating or removal of heavy metals is an important step of treating Candida overgrowth, and this woman used Shaklee's Vitamin C-at least 4 a day, 2 in the AM, and 2 at night, Alfalfa which is full of microminerals and is called the Broom of the Colon, Herb Lax to remove toxins from the intestinal tract and body, and DTX to cleanse the liver.
Anyone interested in the Health talk from Sandra Bevacqua or the Registered Nurse with the blood testing/heavy metal poisoning removal business and information are welcome to contact me, and I will send you the links and passwords so you can listen or order the tapes.
You can also request my FREE Health Questionnaire that shows by symptom what a person is deficient in. A blood panel at your physician (hopefully you have a Naturopath you can trust) can also show these nutrient deficiencies. Without adequate vitamins, minerals, protein and essential fatty acids, your body cannot function well, and can break down with disease and illnesses. The immune system is made from about 90% protein.
I recommend Shaklee's Energizing soy protein, in plain, vanilla or cocoa, as it is a clean plant protein, is in consistent amounts, has been cold-water washed, with the harmful thyroid substance removed, not processed in aluminum vats to create toxins, or spray dried and heated to severe temperatures nor alcohol-washed, and never gets above room temperature. Shaklee also adds 50% calcium to their soy protein, as it is otherwise an acidic substance after processing. Soy milk is not high in Isoflavones.
Dr. B eats up to 100 grams of protein a day, half of which is soy. She corrected her LDL/HDL ratios from the 1-42? ratios to the norm of 1-2.4 to 1-4 in 2 weeks. Her Cardiologist told her she would have a fatal heart attack within the year, before turning 40 years old, with her 1-42 Cholesterol ratios, and her family history of heart attacks at that age. She had normal blood work in about 2 weeks with Shaklee's soy protein. That is what made her pay attention to Shaklee as a scientifically-sound 50+ year company with integrity, testing all their products for contaminants, and she fully recommends their products. No other products had helped her. Her cardiologist attributed God as bringing her LDL/HDL ratios into line, but her General Practice Doctor now refers her own patients to Dr. Sandra Bevacqua for health help with nutrition. Dr. B educates doctors and health professionals on nutrition all over the world.
