Stop Winter Aches with
Vitamin D
Vitamin D is actually not a vitamin. Rather Vitamin D is a potent
hormone in the body. Vitamin D is well known for its role in helping the intes-
tines absorb calcium, however what isnt appreciated are its more important func-
tions. It influences over 3,000 genes in the body, far more than any other nutri-
ent. Vitamin D is essential for maintaining normal blood pressure, strengthening
our immune system and regulating normal growth and development of our cells.
Vitamin D also offers protection against muscle pain and weakness, autoimmune
diseases, heart disease as well as some forms of cancer. Researchers have also
pointed out that regardless of the type of cancer, the one thing sufferers
have in common is a deficiency of vitamin D

Hidden Truth Behind
High Blood Pressure
M
any people see high blood pressure as a real disease caused by problems affecting the heart and arter-
ies. However the hidden truth is that high blood pressure is only a sign of a disease affecting any of the
organs in the body. Your blood pressure is a measure of the force of circulating blood on the arteries.
Since blood flows through all the organs in the body, many of them have a strong influence on blood
pressure.
The digestive organs add nutrients to blood while the excretory organs remove waste from blood, and
both have an influence on blood pressure. The hormonal organs regulate blood pressure using chemicals,
while the organs of the nervous system do the same job with the help of subtle electrical signals. When
our organs and systems become diseased or unbalanced, the resulting effect can be high blood pressure or
hypertension.
Blood pressure medications can only lower blood pressure readings and have no effect whatsoever on the cause of
high blood pressure which when left untreated, may progress into more serious health problems.

WHAT ARE THE COMMONEST CAUSES OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?

The commonest cause of high blood pressure, one that


is detected in 70% of the diagnostic scans carried out
at MedB clinic, is atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the
hardening and narrowing of arteries that can occur in any
artery in the body. Normal healthy arteries are flexible, and
this allows them to expand and contract in order to regu-
late blood pressure. This process fails with atherosclerosis,
causing high blood pressure.

Atherosclerosis is caused by inflammation, and many


scientific studies have identified harmful toxins and nutri-
ent deficiencies as the underlying cause of inflammation.
Unfortunately high blood cholesterol is still regarded as the cause of atherosclerosis. What we clearly understand is
that inflammation first occurs in the arteries, before cholesterol migrates to the site of injury in an attempt to repair
the damage.

Since the kidneys play a vital role in regulating blood pressure, their arteries are particularly sensitive to the effects
of atherosclerosis. The kidneys are responsible for filtering out waste materials that can cause high blood pressure.
The kidneys also produce a chemical Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) that regulates blood pressure by con-
stricting the arteries. When in excessive amounts, ACE can cause high blood pressure. Some prescription drugs used
to treat high blood pressure stops the body from making this chemical.

A simple and effective treatment for atherosclerosis is Omega-3 fatty acids. Clinical studies have shown
that the deficiency of Omega-3 in our diet today is a leading cause of inflammation which triggers atherosclerosis.
Taking between 3.5 5 grams of omega-3 supplements daily for about 6 months can halt or reverse the progress of
atherosclerosis. Good food sources of omega-3 include wild deep sea salmon and flax seeds.

The build-up of toxins or contaminants in the body is a common cause of high blood pressure. Toxins can accumu-
late in any organ in the body, and are recognised as the underlying cause of many chronic diseases including cancer.
Unfortunately toxic chemicals are the bane of modern day living and are found in virtually everything around us
from cosmetics, solvents, food additives, and clothing. High blood pressure can occur as a result of the build-up of
toxins in the heart and blood vessels. Eliminating toxins from the body may be the only treatment required to cure
high blood pressure.

What are Antioxidants?

A
ntioxidants are nutrients that protect the body against toxic chemicals known as free radicals
that attack body fats, proteins, cell membranes and genetic materials.
Free radical damage has been linked to a number of health problems including: coronary heart
disease and stroke, cataracts, macular degeneration, premature ageing of the skin, arthritis,
Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, impaired immunity, and cancer.

Toxic Free radicals are continuously produced in the body as a result of normal and abnormal chemical
processes occurring in the body. Major sources of free radicals include cigarette smoke, excessive alcohol,
environmental pollutants, X-rays, UV light and medications.

Antioxidants neutralizes free radicals before they cause damage to cells. Several essential vitamins and
minerals act as natural antioxidants in the body and include - vitamins A, C, E and selenium.

Many antioxidants occur naturally in fruits, vegetables and nuts such as: carotenoids, isoflavones, tannins,
lignans and flavonoids. These powerful antioxidants have a beneficial effect on cholesterol balance, blood
pressure, blood sugar control and overall circulatory health. Polyphenols, a type of antioxidant found in
red wine, blueberries and green tea, increases the levels of Nitric Oxide, a chemical released in blood ves-
sels to reduce blood pressure.

People that eat the highest amount of fruit and veg-


etables are known to have the lowest blood pressure
and lowest risk of developing diabetes, coronary
heart disease and stroke.

The antioxidant potential of foods are assessed by


measuring their ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance
Capacity) score. Researchers have estimated that
the average person on a western diet receives or
obtains about 5,700 ORAC units every day.

However you need at least 7000 ORAC units for


health, and for optimal health, around 20,000
ORAC units every day.

Good cooking oils and fat are described as ' saturated'. This means they have a tightly built
structure that makes them resistant to high heat. Bad cooking oils and fats are described
as unsaturated, meaning that they have a loose and weak structure that makes them very
unstable and toxic when heated.

Shocking Dangers
of
CT scans

D
o you never feel satisfied with a hospital vis-
it until you are sent for a CT scan? If so, you
should know that CT-scans and even X-rays
have been strongly linked to many types of
cancer. The danger of X-rays are well known but not so
much the danger from CT scans, even though they are dead-
lier. CT scans consists of multiple X-ray machines that take
many pictures of the body from different angles in order to
capture a 3D image. For this reason, a single CT scan can
expose the body to the same amount of radiation as around
500 X-rays.

The radiation from X-rays cause severe injury to the body by damaging DNA- the blue print
of life. DNA damage is the most serious of injuries because it affects the ability of the body
to produce the correct sequence of information needed to maintain health.
What is also unrecognised is that the effects of radiation is cumulative. This means that
with every CT scan or X-ray that you have, your total exposure adds up. Even more wor-
risome is the whole body CT scan commonly advertised as a health check, which experts
estimate to be the equivalent of 900 X-rays.
Several studies have linked the indiscriminate use of CT scans to the sky rocketing cases
of cancer seen in society today. It is important to realise that the information revealed by
CT scans are very limited. CT scans are only useful for showing masses in the body such as
tumours or lumps. They are limited for revealing the overall state of health of an individual
and for diagnosing diseases.
So what options do you have? One of the most advanced and safest diagnostic scans today
is performed with a technology called Sensitiv Imago. Sensitiv Imago performs extensive
and detailed analysis of the body by reading frequencies emanating from the cells, tissues
and organs of the body. This information is converted to digital codes and displayed on a
computer screen.
Unlike other diagnostic scans that can only reveal the problems you have at the moment,
Sensitiv imago uses complex mathematical calculations to estimate your state of health in
the future, making it possible for you to prevent disease long before it happens.

Benefits of
Drinking
Water

The most important step you can take to improve your health is to form the habit of drinking
enough water through the day. You should aim to drink at least 1.5 litres of water everyday. In the
summer months however we lose a lot of fluids and need to drink up to 3 litres daily.
When you consider that 70% of the human body is made of water, it puts into perspective the im-
portance of water. Water makes it possible for nutrients to be distributed and waste removed from
the billions of cells in the body.
Water is necessary for filtering out toxic substances that we become exposed to from our foods,
drinks, medications, cosmetics etc. and failing to drink enough water will cause a build-up of these
contaminants in the body. A number of health problems such as arthritis, kidney diseases and
high blood pressure can be traced to not drinking enough water. Many people have lost their thirst
for water and are unaware that they are chronically dehydrated.
Water is necessary for keeping the joints supple and preventing joint diseases. The synovial mem-
brane produces a fluid to lubricate and cushion our joints. This fluid is mostly composed of water,
and is affected by dehydration. Organs that contain a lot of fluid such as the brain, eyes and joints,
are particularly sensitive to the effects of dehydration. Unsurprisingly, common symptoms of de-
hydration include: dry eyes, headaches and joint pains.
Drinking enough water everyday will keep you healthy, and may even help reverse some health
problems. Juices and beverages are no substitute for water. You should also drink more water if
you take prescription drugs.

Memory Recall By Staring at Nothing

Ask a senior citizen to remember the name of a friend from the good old days and
chances are that they would either stare at the floor or straight into space as if the
name would magically appear from somewhere. Well it may surprise you to know that
it works. You see the human face takes up a significant percentage of our concentra-
tion and by simply staring at nothing you devote more brain power to recalling faces.

Relieve Joint and Muscle
Aches and Pain with MSM
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is the most vital nutrient required by
the body to build and maintain strong and healthy joints and bones. MSM

component of our bones, joints, skin and hair. More so than calcium, your
body needs MSM to build; bones, joints, skin and hair. For this reason,
MSM has been called the beauty mineral

Kitchen remedy
for acid reflux
Stomach acid suppressants such as omeprazole are
very commonly used in hospitals to treat acid re-
flux. However a safer and much cheaper treatment
can be achieved with apple cider vinegar. Apple
cider vinegar has been used for centuries to treat
acid reflux.

As improbably as it may seem, acid reflux can be caused by either too much acid in the stomach, or too
little acid in the stomach. In fact most cases are due to too little acid. The change in acidity of the stomach
causes a dysfunction of the valves that prevent acid from escaping from the stomach into the oesophagus.

Apple cider vinegar adds to the acidity of the stomach when there is too little acid, and buffers the stom-
ach acid levels when there is too much acid. The recommendation is to take 2 table spoons of apple cider
vinegar diluted in a small quantity of water every morning, or immediately after experiencing heart burn.
Note that foods that contain wheat trigger acid reflux.

Over the counter (OTC) medications can cause
Alzheimers disease and Dementia

A
new study has shown very clearly that over-
the-counter medicines such as those used
for treating asthma, allergies and insomnia,
increase the risk of Alzheimers disease and
other forms of dementia.

The study also found that the risk may not be revers-
ible, even after several years off these medications.
Some of the OTC drugs studied include those used to
treat: allergies, motion sickness, irritable bowel syn-
drome, colds, depression, cough and muscle pain.

The study showed that the risks are increased when


higher doses are taken, or when these drugs are pre-
scribed for a long time. Also, when these drugs are
taken in combination, the danger increases exponen-
tially.

Tips for Buying Prescription Drugs

One of the benefits of living in Spain is that you can buy many kinds of prescription drugs over the coun-
ter. The downside is that it encourages self-mediation which can be dangerous. Here are some points to
consider before buying prescription drugs.

Saving Money: Drugs normally have 2 names the generic name and the brand name. The generic name
is the approved name, while the brand name is the fanciful name of the drug, often chosen to be memo-
rable for advertising. The generic name is usually written in small letters while the brand name is written
out more clearly. Generic name drugs are usually much cheaper than brand name drugs even though they
are the same. For example paracetamol is a generic name, while Panadol or Calpol are brand names with
exactly the same ingredient as paracetamol.

Pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs: Many people take pain killers on a regular basis, however
painkillers and anti-inflammatories are associated with serious side-effects. Taking these drugs for a long
time can cause liver and kidney damage. On the short term however, pain killers and anti-inflammatories
cause inflammation of the stomach (gastritis) and to avoid such problems, doctors commonly prescribe an
acid suppressant such as omeprazole. Pain killers only provide short term relief. The proper way to manage
pain is to identify and treat the root cause of the pain.

Antibiotics: Antibiotics are useful for getting rid of harmful microbes from the body, however antibiotics
are blind and are unable to differentiate harmful microbes from beneficial ones. Beneficial microbes are
necessary to digest food properly as well as boost the immune system. Unsurprisingly, antibiotics are as-
sociated with diseases of the gut and the immune system. If you must take antibiotics, make sure you also
take probiotics.

Remove Toxins from Your Body with
Pectasol

I
magine spending your life in a house that is never cleaned. The human body without
proper detoxification (or clean-up), is exactly the same as that house. Every day we
are exposed to dozens of toxic compounds that cause chronic diseases. From pre-
scription drugs to household cleaning products, cosmetics, plastics and even drink-
ing water, we are surrounded by potential sources of deadly toxins that contaminates the
body.

Researchers have calculated that the average person has inside them over 100 deadly
toxins such as mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminium, mycotoxins (from moulds), DDT, in-
secticides, BPA (from plastics) and many others. These toxins accumulate in all our organ,
and over time cause chronic health problems such as memory loss, high blood pressure,
arthritis, diabetes, dementia, sexual dysfunction and premature ageing.

Pectasol is the only orally taken natural detox that has been rigorously tested and shown
to remove many different kinds of toxic chemicals from the body.

Research has also shown that Pectasol binds to a cancer causing chemical in the body
called Galectin-3

Pectasol helps people suffering from Tiredness, Heart and artery disease, memory loss
and dementia, rheumatoid arthritis as well as asthma.

Dose: 2 level teaspoon in a


glass of water in the morning,
and then drink 1.5L of water
all through the day. For 22
days
