HFI Is Your First Line Of Defense

Nearly fifty years of research suggests that a compound of humic fulvic acid is a valuable support for people who seek relief from nutritional imbalances, immune system disorders and viral diseases.

Humic fulvic acid’s greatest contribution to human health will be as a preventive dietary supplement. Every scientific test of humic fulvic acid has conclusively proven that it is most effective and efficient when it’s introduced into the system before a threat appears.

With new strains and mutations of microbes constantly popping up around the globe, our immune systems are being challenged like never before. That is why we suggest the use of a purified, refined, and standardized humic fulvic acid supplement on a daily basis, as a part of your regular health maintenance routine. Daily use of humic fulvic acid will assist the body in manufacturing the glycoproteins that balance and regulate the various components of the immune system.

Along with microbial threats, we are witnessing a continuing influx of industrial and agricultural toxic pollutants into our air, our water, and unfortunately, even into our food supply. Humic fulvic acid will act as a gentle and mild daily detoxifier that will inhibit and reverse the build-up of [Read more...]

Humic Fulvic Minerals Instead Of A Flu Shot

It’s getting close to the year when flu vaccines are pushed on us to supposedly ensure we won’t get sick. Our HFA supplier sent us this article which we really like since we don’t believe in vaccines.

An old remedy from the soil resurfaces to help those who cannot access flu vaccines. Natural humic acid coats viruses and makes it more difficult for them to attach to healthy cells and multiply. It has shown to reduce viral counts in numerous patients with a variety of viral inflictions including hepatitis and HIV.

Viruses are extremely small organisms that can easily get inside cells. They are parasitic in that they enter healthy cells where they reside and feed off these cells. They raise their young within these cells to be spread to other cells inside and outside the body (through sneezing, excretion of body fluids, sexual transmission, etc.)

Viruses contain a receptor-binding protein that keeps them attached to the healthy cell. This protein encapsulates the virus and makes it resistant to attacks from the immune system. Humic acid is a nutrient from the soil that dilates a healthy cell and causes permeability so it can enter.

When humic acid finds a virus it coats it with a substance that not only [Read more...]

Reeling In The Years

I found an article in O magazine March 2011. It was so fascinating that I am going to summarize it for you.

In 1921 a Stanford University psychologist named Lewis Terman recruited 1,500 elementary school students for a study that would last eight decades. Terman followed these students into adulthood until he passed away in 1956. Other scientists then picked up where he left off, and in 1990 psychologists Howard Friedman and Leslie Martin began [Read more...]

Health Is Wealth

I met Lee Milteer a productivity coach at an internet conference and I receive a newsletter from her every other week. Usually her posts are about motivation and about how to achieve a high performance in business. This time, she talked about health and what she said resonated with me, because I too was going to write something about this connection of health and wealth.

The older I get the more I realize how important health is and we need to take charge of our own health. Her post is so good that I have decided to share it with you.

Lee Milteer’s post:

Last week we talked about health being true wealth. This week I want to continue by giving you some secrets to great health. The first secret you should know about perfect health is that YOU HAVE TO [Read more...]

Thyroid Balance

By Dr. Carrie Demers, director of the Himalayan Institute Total Health center.

Hypothyroidism is medical speak for a low functioning thyroid, the tiny butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck. This rather common condition affects around 10 percent of women over 40; and unfortunately, once you reach menopause, you’ve nearly doubled your chance of such a diagnose. Depending on the severity of the problem, your doctor will probably prescribe a daily thyroid hormone replacement pill. However before you resign to a lifetime of pill swallowing. I think a little research is in order to determine the cause of your sluggish thyroid. There are several holistic options exist that [Read more...]

Bitter Pills

Anti-depressants- the most frequently prescribed drugs for those from 20-59- can be a “helpful tool,” acknowledges Julia Ross M.A., the executive director of Mill Valley nutrition clinic, with 80% of their patients go there for depression treatment. The trouble is, they don’t cure anything, so when you go off them you risk becoming depressed again.”

Ross says that because nutrient therapy targets the underlying problem, it can keep people off medication for good.

Over the years, doctors have discovered that a single drug often isn’t enough to fully brighten moods (and even if it is, the pills can create other problems-obliterate sex drive, or the ability to sleep), so many now add a second medication to augment the first, plus something to improve sleep or lift libido. People with hard to treat illnesses can wind up with half a dozen prescriptions. According to Ramin Mojtabai; M.D. PhD, associate professor at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’ study had found that doctors prescribe two or more meds during a single office visit 60% of the time up 20% from a decade ago.

The risk of taking multiple meds is becoming clearer. Most seriously, combining meds can cause diabetes, high cholesterol, and colossal weight gain (40-60 pounds isn’t unusual). It can also churn up the mind or [Read more...]

Lipoic Acid Reverses Mitochondrial Decay

The mitochondrial theory of aging has long held a prominent place in scientists’ understanding of the processes that impact aging. First proposed by Denman Harman in 1972, this theory posits that accumulated DNA damage to mitochondria, the cells’ energy generators, leads to increased free radical stress and decreased cellular energy production. In the past 30 years, a wealth of evidence led prominent researchers such as Bruce Ames to consider it a major contributor to aging.

Experimental models support this theory and demonstrate the importance of youthful mitochondria function in maintaining cellular health. For example, cells microinjected with mitochondria from aged animals display greater cellular degeneration, compared with cells microinjected with mitochondria from youthful animals. The mitochondrial theory of aging has analyzed the components of young and old cells. Youthful organisms contain abundant numbers of smaller, bio-energetically efficient mitochondria, while older organisms contain larger, inefficient mitochondria that decrease energy supply in the cells.

Delaying mitochondrial aging through the use of nutrients such as [Read more...]

Serotonin and Bone Mass Connection

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter manufactured in the brain that has a major impact on mood, learning, appetite and sleep… right? Yes, insofar as it goes… but once again digestion expert Andrew L. Rubman, ND, wants us to know there is more to the story. It turns out that 5% or less of the body’s serotonin is made in the brain, while 95% is manufactured in [Read more...]

Keeping Your Eggs in Your Basket

The fountain of youth is in your ovary, keep your eggs in your basket.

I read O magazine of Oct. issue 2009 about the article of keeping all your eggs in one basket. The author pointed how a lot of time what conventional thinking may not necessarily is wise for women. For example in the case of radical mastectomy, the debilitating automatic treatment at the time vs a less invasive lumpectomy. Rose Kushner persuaded Jimmy Carter through national Institute of Health to fund clinical trial to find out that Lumpectomy work just well and lumpectomy won. The halsted radical mastectomy was “the greatest standardized surgical error of the [Read more...]

I love my liver

I was in Hong Kong, a friend of mine took me to see a well known Chinese doctor. He gave me a pulse reading, he said, “you are healthy except that I think your liver is being used too much and needs to get cleaned.” He gave me several packages of Chinese herbal pills that can help clean liver. He did not say that my liver is congested and just said that I need to [Read more...]

Why we eat more than we think

Most people assume that we make about 15 food-related decision a day. In reality, that number is more like 227, said Brian Wansink Phd, Cornell university food psychologist and author of “Mindless eating”. It’s is not just a matter of choosing the soup or the salad; it is , Do I add croutons? Do I finish the whole bowl? Do I go back for seconds.

Since we are not always conscious of of these decisions, we are swayed easily by [Read more...]

A thought to share from my friend….

” I just finished taking an evening class at Stanford. The last lecture was on the mind-body connection–the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his health is to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends.
