Find a gentle natural method that will not have severe side effects.
Decide on the length of time you wish to cleanse. One, Two or three months are appropriate. For chonic illness we recommend three months of the Whole Body Slow Cleanse, which includes this great formula.

Please read the following information before doing any type of cleansing. Included are options and information to help you make the correct choice.

Do You Need To Do A Cleanse?

1) Have less than 1 bowel movement per meal eaten?

2) Are you more than 10 pounds over weight?

3) Are you tired and sluggish?

4) Do you have food allergies?

5) Do you crave breads or sugary sweets?

6) Do you rarely exercise?

7) Does your skin breakout?

8) Do you have bad breath?

9) Do you have to mask body odor with a scent?

10) Never done an inner body cleanse before?

11) Do you eat dairy products?

12) Do you need caffeine to get up?

If you answered yes to 3 or more of the above or yes to #1, #2 or #10 you should use the Whole Body Deep Cleanse Kit or the Method 2 below before you administer the Whole Body Deep Cleanse Kit.

I have created two superior methods for detoxification. You may purchase all the products from our Ordering Page on this website.

Method I

One Thirteen-Day Cleanse.

You may use the Whole Body Deep Cleanse Kit for the most thorough gentle detoxification possible. This is for someone who has cleansed his or her body previously or completed Method 2 below.

Method 2

A Three-Month Cleanse

The First Month

Some people feel that their body is extremely toxic; therefore, you may want a longer and slower cleanse. In this case, you may start your cleanse 5 days a week as follows.

Take the Kidney Pro, Liver Pro and Colon Pro for one month as follows:

2 to 3 Colon Pro twice daily before or during meals.
3 Liver Pro, three times per day 5 days a week..
3 Kidney Pro, three times a day 5 days a week
The Second Month

After one month you can add the Whole Body Pro for one month.

Two Whole Body Pro twice daily
1, 2 or 3 Colon Pro taken with the Whole Body Pro according to how sluggish your bowel is.
You may continue to use the Kidney and Liver Pro during this time in equal quantity of each tablet.
The Third Month,

Same regime as the second month.

After the third month, you can add the Deep Cleanse Kit as described under PRODUCTS. Follow the directions on the Whole Body Deep Cleanse kit for usage.

The Kidney Pro, Liver Pro and Colon Pro

These formulas are designed to eliminate impurities over a 3-month period.

The Products Function

Colon Pro: Moves the bowel. By itself it will never constipate. Due to the increased movement it aids the body in healing the bowel.

Whole Body Pro: Bulks the stool as it alleviates waste that is lodged through out the system (cellular cleanse).

Liver Pro: Resets or activates the liver (turns it on) thus affecting bile secretions that acts in the bowel as a stimulant and stool softener.

Kidney Pro: Resets or activates the kidneys (turns them on), adrenal glands and pancreas. The kidneys regulate fluid usage and movement though out the system.

What is Constipation?

Constipation is less than1 elimination per meal eaten. Experiment with the tablets and see how many you need to achieve this goal. Do not overdue it, be patient, the process takes 3 months.

Bowel frequency is affected by the following factors and can make you constipated.

Use of diuretics
Use of salt and sodium
Use of prescription drugs
Local climate
Exercise routine
Water intake
Dairy intake
The factors mentioned above could all play havoc with the body and its eliminative process.

The key is to not be rote about the use of this or any product and to adapt to new situations. For example, If someone is taking 5 colon pro and 1 Whole Body Pro and doing the dietary regime correctly, yet is still constipated, stop the Whole Body Pro for a day or two. Use the Colon Pro alone. After a few days (3 or 4) of this routine, reintroduce the Whole Body Pro once every other day. Keep this up for three or four days, eventually returning the Whole Body Pro usage back to daily intake above or in the Whole Body Deep Cleanse kit.

Intensive, Deep Inner Cleansing

Intensive deep cleansing is an individual thing and a process that should be done every year. Through experimentation, you will establish how many of each tablet formula you will need. Relax; there is no way to speed up the process.

Follow Up Maintenance of Your Cleanse

After you FINISH your intensive 3 months of cleansing, wait 2 weeks & then do the intensive 11-day, Whole Body Deep Cleanse. After you have completed the Whole Body Deep Cleanse kit wait one month and do the second 11-day cleanse that is included in the kit. You will maintain the benefits of your intensive 3 month cleanse and Whole Body Deep Cleanse, for up to two years.

Moreover, you can also use any of my homeopathic remedies during either cleanse. I suggest reading Transform Your Emotional DNA so that you can learn about the emotions related to these organs.

Whether you use method 1 or 2, please eat healthy meals, organic food, and use the vegetable juice recipe, which you can find in my latest book Revitalize Your Hormones. The Biehler’s Broth recipe in my Transdorm Your DNA book has saved lives and unnecessary gallbladder surgery.

I suggest during when cleansing that a person drink half his or her body weight of pure water in ounces? For example, a 150 pound person would need 75 ounces of water a day.

Skyn Care Kit

Your Skin Care and Cosmetics Affect Your Hormones and Health!

What You Need to Know!

An explosive article from the Environmental Working Group exposes the dangers of cosmetics and skin care! Reading the labels may not be enough as the plastic containers leach chemicals into the product itself.  The chart below shows how the ingredients in cosmetics affect hormone levels and your health.

 

Test results from 20 teen girls find 16 chemicals from 4 chemical families commonly used in cosmetics and body care products (results for individual chemicals below).  To see the results of this study click on the Environmental Working Group link and review all of the results below.http://www.ewg.org/node/26954/print

 

Research Report

Over the past 20 plus years, I researched nearly every skin care product on the market in the US and in my travels to Europe, India, Canada, and South Africa.  The European skin care was overall less toxic and contained more natural ingredients.  However, it did not show the visible progress that women want to see.  So, I formulated many different types of skin care products with natural ingredients, trying sample after sample and finally discovered the perfect combination of ingredients to bring about the changes that we all want to see.

 

Our fine NuFemâ Skyn Care System is safe, in glass containers, and do not contain toxic substances that cause cancer and other health issues.  Simply, I have created the best skin care products on the market today. Furthermore, NuFem Skyn will help rejuvenate (nourish) your skin while enhancing collagen synthesis, increasing hydration and defeating wrinkles, brown spots and large pores. This kit containing 4 formulas will help create visible progress with the tone, color, firmness and overall health of your skin.    Click on each product name below to see the label.

  • Rejuvenating Cleanser & Toner
  • Beyond Moisture “Anti-Aging Rejuvenation Elixir”
  • Rejuvenating Deep Peel
  • Serum “Homeopathic Anti-Aging Healing & Rejuvenation”

Always avoid the following chemicals commonly found in commercial skin care products and their plastic containers.

Phthalates

What are phthalates?

The widely used group of chemicals called phthalates (pronounced THA-lates) can interfere with hormones in the body, posing potential risks to the reproductive and thyroid systems (Duty 2003, 2004, 2005; Swan 2005; Main 2006; Hauser 2007; Huang 2007; Meeker 2007). Preliminary studies also link phthalates to diabetes risk and asthma (Bornehag 2004; Stahlhut 2007; Jaakkola 2008; Kolarik 2008). Phthalates are detected in nearly every American, from babies to adults (CDC 2005). According to a large national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), levels of phthalates in some U.S. women of childbearing age exceed the government’s safe levels (Kohn 2000). Phthalates are widespread contaminants in the environment and in wildlife as well (Kolpin 2002; Rudel 2003).

How are we exposed to them?

Though not always listed on labels, phthalates are common ingredients in cosmetics and body care products. Dibutyl phthalate may be found in nail polish. Phthalates are also used to moisturize and to help chemicals absorb into the skin. The most common use of phthalates is as an ingredient in “fragrance” mixtures added to body care products. Companies are not required to reveal the ingredients making up fragrance mixtures on the labels of products. EWG product testing found phthalates in nearly three-quarters of 72 name-brand products, though none of them listed phthalates as ingredients (EWG/HCWH/WVE 2002).

Phthalates also soften plastic used in a wide range of ordinary products, from food wraps and toys to building materials and medical equipment. Currently, the chemical industry produces billions of pounds of these chemicals each year. People are exposed to phthalates daily through contact with everyday products and via food, indoor air, and even house dust (CDC 2005).

What are the potential health effects?

Studies of ordinary people suggest exposures to phthalates increase the risk of reproductive system birth defects and hormonal changes in baby boys (Swan 2005; Main 2006). In adult men they are linked to reduced sperm motility and concentration, increased damage to sperm DNA, and hormonal changes (Duty 2003, 2004, 2005; Hauser 2007). Phthalate exposures are linked to obesity and insulin resistance in men (Stahlhut 2007), conditions that can lead to Type 2 diabetes. They are also linked to thyroid irregularities in both men and women (Huang 2007; Meeker 2007), and to asthma and skin allergies in children (Bornehag 2004; Jaakkola 2008; Kolarik 2008). Animal studies indicate exposure to phthalates can trigger miscarriage or cause infertility in females, and can cause birth defects in male and female offspring of animals exposed during pregnancy (e.g., Marsman 1995; Wine 1997; Ema 1998; Mylchreest 1998, 1999, 2000; Gray 1999, 2000; CERHR 2000).

Have these chemicals been regulated?

Phthalates are considered hazardous waste and are regulated as pollutants in air and water. One phthalate, DEHP, is regulated in drinking water. DEHP was allegedly removed voluntarily from children’s toys over a decade ago. However, 2 recent studies detected DEHP in toys on the market today (Purvis 2005; Kay 2006). Bans on specific phthalates in children’s products were passed recently, first in California, and then nationwide. Phthalates are unregulated in food, cosmetics, and medical products in the U.S. In contrast, the European Union restricts use of some phthalates.

How can we prevent future exposures?

Because phthalates are found in many everyday products, some exposure may be unavoidable. One way to reduce exposure is to switch to phthalate-free cosmetics and body care products. Choose products that do not list “fragrance” as an ingredient, and nail polish that does not contain dibutyl phthalate. You can also choose fragrance-free detergents and cleaning products, eat less food packaged in plastic, and not microwave food in plastic containers.

Triclosan

What is triclosan?

Triclosan is an artificial antimicrobial chemical used to kill bacteria on the skin and other surfaces. Triclosan is used in a variety of cosmetics and everyday products. Recent studies suggest this chemical may disrupt thyroid function (Veldhoen 2006), and can form toxic byproducts in tap water and in the environment (Adolfsson-Erici 2002; Lindstrom 2002; Lores 2005; Fiss 2007). A scientific advisory panel to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined that “antibacterial” soaps, like those containing triclosan, were no better than regular soap and water at killing germs or reducing the spread of infection (FDA 2005). The American Medical Association recommends that triclosan and other “antibacterial” products not be used in the home, as they may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics (Tan 2002). Despite this advice, widespread use has led to detection of triclosan in the breast milk, blood, and urine of ordinary people (Adolfsson-Erici 2002; TNO 2005; Allmyr 2006a, 2006b; Dayan 2007; Calafat 2008). CDC’s national survey indicates that triclosan contaminates the bodies of 75% of the American population (Calafat 2008).

How are we exposed to triclosan?

Triclosan is the most common active ingredient in “antibacterial” liquid hand soaps, and is also found in toothpastes, deodorants, face and body washes, and acne treatments, among others. Besides cosmetics, triclosan is found in an increasing number of everyday items, such as dishwashing detergent, kitchen tools, toys, trash bags, bedding, bathmats, socks, and footwear (EWG 2008). Triclosan also contaminates household dust (Canosa 2007).

What are the potential health effects?

Triclosan accumulates in fat and can build up in the bodies of people and animals over time (Samsøe-Petersen 2003). An animal study indicates tadpoles exposed to tiny amounts of triclosan experience disruption of the thyroid system (Veldhoen 2006). Triclosan increased the effect of thyroid hormones when it was present in water at levels below 1 part per billion. Such low levels are commonly measured in people, and in rivers and streams, due to widespread use of triclosan (Kolpin 2002; Calafat 2008). The thyroid hormone system is similar in frogs and humans, suggesting that triclosan may disrupt the human thyroid system. Thyroid hormones are critical for normal growth and development of humans as well; the developing brain of a child is particularly vulnerable to damage caused by disruption of the thyroid system.

Triclosan may also disrupt other critical hormone systems. A recent lab study found the chemical to exert both estrogenic and androgenic effects on human breast cancer cells (Gee 2008). Studies of fish suggest that triclosan may have weak androgenic (Foran 2000) or anti-estrogenic effects (Matsumura 2005), while a metabolite of triclosan may have estrogenic effects (Ishibashi 2004). Other animal studies link triclosan to inhalation and liver toxicity and cancer (EWG 2008).

Triclosan can react with chlorine in tap water to form chloroform, a suspected cancer-causing chemical (Fiss 2007). It can also degrade into a type of dioxin (Lores 2005), part of a group of highly toxic chemicals, and a compound called methyl triclosan that is toxic to aquatic life (Adolfsson-Erici 2002; Lindstrom 2002; Farré 2008). Triclosan may also promote antibiotic resistance in bacteria, because while repeated use kills most bacteria, this can allow resistant strains to flourish (Levy 2001; Tan 2002; Aiello 2005).

Has the chemical been regulated?

Triclosan is regulated by FDA when used in cosmetics and for medical applications, by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when used as an antibacterial pesticide (in products that make “antibacterial” claims), and by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) when used in ordinary consumer products that do not make specific “antibacterial” claims. Current regulations do not take into account concerns regarding hormone disruption or formation of toxic byproducts, nor do they fully account for the potential for multiple exposures through the broad variety of triclosan-treated everyday products.

How can we prevent future exposures?

Because triclosan is found in many everyday products, some exposure may be unavoidable. One way to reduce exposure is to switch to triclosan-free cosmetics and body care products. Avoid body care products, especially liquid hand soaps, labeled “antibacterial,” and always check the list of ingredients. Triclosan will be listed as an active ingredient on the product label. If you use a skin disinfectant, use an alcohol hand rub or rinse. Avoid “antibacterial” dishwashing detergents, cleaning products, and other items – there is no evidence that these products protect your health. Triclosan is approved for use in over 140 different types of products, and most of these are not required to have ingredient labels (EWG 2008). Vague claims such as “protection against mold,” “odor-fighting” or “keeps food fresher, longer,” may also indicate the presence of triclosan.

Musks

What are musks?

Nitro- and polycyclic musks are artificial chemicals used for decades in “fragrance” mixtures added to everyday products. Animal studies indicate musks may disrupt the hormone (endocrine) system (Seinen 1999; Schreurs 2004), and may disturb a natural defense the body uses to protect itself from toxic chemicals (Luckenbach 2005). Laboratory studies also link some musks to cancer (Maekawa 1990; Apostolidis 2002). Widespread use of musks has led to detections in fish and in rivers and lakes (Balk 1999; Fromme 1999, 2001; Gatermann 2002; Peck 2004, 2006; Duedahl-Olesen 2005; Kannan 2005). Musks can accumulate in fat and build up in the human body, and have been detected in people’s breast milk, fat, and blood (Rimkus 1996; Liebl 2000; TNO 2004, 2005; Hutter 2005; Lignell 2008).

How are we exposed to them?

Musks are often used in cosmetics and body care products, like perfume and soap that contain “fragrance.” Musks are also used in air fresheners, detergents, fabric softeners, cleaning products, cigarettes, and as food additives. Musks can be absorbed through the skin, inhaled, and ingested; skin absorption and inhalation are important routes of exposure through cosmetics. Daily use of body care products containing “fragrance” can result in repeated, direct exposures.

What are the potential health effects?

Some musks irritate the skin, or trigger allergic reactions (Cronin 1984; Parker 1986; Hayakawa 1987, 1991; Menz 1988; Thune 1988; DeLeo 1992; Kanchan 2002). In laboratory studies, certain musks have been linked to cancer (Maekawa 1990; Apostolidis 2002), and others no longer in common use harm the nervous system (Spencer 1984; Ford 1990; Rimkus 1996, 1997). Laboratory studies indicate that some musks can disrupt the hormone system (Seinen 1999; Chou 1999; Bitsch 2002; Gomez 2005; Schreurs 2004, 2005a, 2005b). A study of nitromusks in people suggests that higher levels of some musks may be linked to reproductive problems in women (Eisenhardt 2001).

A recent animal study found that low levels of nitro- and polycyclic musks interfere with the ability of structures in cell walls to keep toxic substances from entering the cell (Luckenbach 2005). By disturbing a cell’s natural ability to fend off toxic chemicals, musks could allow poisons to build up within cells and cause damage. Human cells have the same cell wall structures as those examined in this study, indicating a cause for concern.

Have these chemicals been regulated?

Growing concerns about the health effects of nitromusks led the European Union to ban the use of some of these chemicals in cosmetics and body care products. Many companies have begun to use polycyclic musks in place of nitromusks because they are believed to be less toxic (Daughton 1999; OSPAR 2004). But some studies suggest that polycyclic musks pose some of the same health risks suspected of nitromusks. A nitromusk (musk ambrette) and a polycyclic musk have been removed from the market voluntarily due to health concerns. In the United States, all musk chemicals are unregulated, and safe levels of exposure have not yet been set.

How can we prevent future exposures?

Because musks are found in many everyday products, some exposure may be unavoidable. One way to reduce exposure is to switch to fragrance-free cosmetics and body care products – choose products that do not list “fragrance” as an ingredient. Musks are added to many other products, including laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and household cleaners – choose fragrance-free versions of these products as well. Unfortunately, as there is no requirement for companies to list ingredients on these products, it can be difficult to tell which contain fragrance. Finally, avoid air fresheners, which provide a blast of artificial fragrance to cover up other odors.

Parabens

What are parabens?

In use since the 1920s, parabens are a group of artificial preservatives commonly found in many different cosmetics and body care products. Parabens are used to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold in a cosmetic product, increasing its shelf life. Laboratory studies suggest parabens can disrupt reproductive hormones (Routledge 1998; Oishi 2001, 2002a, 2002b; Byford 2002; Darbre 2002, 2003; Inui 2003; Gomez 2005; Mikula 2006; Pugazhendhi 2007). In 2006, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) tested urine samples from a group of 100 adults and found parabens in nearly all samples (Ye 2006). Cosmetics typically contain mixtures of parabens. Of the 6 we measured, 5 are fairly common in cosmetics: methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, isopropyl-, and butylparaben (measured in combination with isobutylparaben); benzylparaben is less common.

How are we exposed to them?

Parabens are present in a wide variety of cosmetics and body care products, including moisturizers, face and skin cleansers, shampoos, conditioners, sunscreens, deodorants and antiperspirants, shaving gels, toothpastes, makeup, and many others. They are also used as preservatives in food and beverages, and in some medications. Daily use of body care products can result in repeated, direct exposure to parabens. Parabens have also been detected in household dust (Canosa 2007).

What are the potential health effects?

Some parabens can irritate the skin or cause allergic reactions (Schamberg 1967; Nagel 1977; Soni 2001, 2002; CIR 2006). Laboratory studies indicate that parabens are estrogenic, meaning they can mimic the hormone estrogen, disrupting normal function of the hormone system (Routledge 1998; Oishi 2001, 2002a, 2002b; Byford 2002; Darbre 2002, 2003; Inui 2003; Gomez 2005; Mikula 2006; Pugazhendhi 2007). In a recent study, traces of 5 different parabens were found in the breast cancer tumors of 19 of 20 women examined (Darbre 2004); other lab studies also link parabens to cancer (Byford 2002; Darbre 2002, 2003; Pugazhendhi 2007), and to reproductive health problems as well (Oishi 2001, 2002).

When personal care products containing parabens are combined with chlorinated tap water, a number of chlorinated paraben byproducts can form (Canosa 2006). These chlorinated paraben chemicals have not been assessed for safety. Some are persistent, and have been detected in samples of untreated wastewater (Canosa 2006). Parabens are also linked to ecological harm; low levels of butylparaben can kill coral, according to laboratory tests (Danovaro 2008).

Have these chemicals been regulated?

The European Union banned use of sodium methylparaben in fragrance because it can strip skin of pigment (SCCPNFP 1999, 2000). While FDA limits the levels of parabens allowed in foods and beverages, it does not regulate these chemicals in cosmetics and body care products.

Hormone

Disruption caused by cosmetic chemicals

Role of hormone in the human body

Typical concentrations of hormone in serum

Reproductive Hormones
Estradiol (estrogen) Phthalates: Cell studies show phthalates can replace estradiol on estrogen receptor sites (CERHR 2000). A study of female rats indicates one phthalate can reduce levels of estradiol in the body (CERHR 2000).Triclosan: Cell studies show triclosan can replace estradiol on estrogen receptor sites, and can increase the growth of estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cells (Gee 2008). A frog study indicates triclosan may have anti-estrogenic effects (Matsumura 2005), while a fish study indicates a metabolite of triclosan may have estrogenic effects (Ishibashi 2004).Musks: Cell studies show some musks produce weak estrogenic (Seinen 1999; Bitsch 2002; Gomez 2005) and anti-estrogenic effects (Schreurs 2005a, 2005b). Fish studies show certain musks produce anti-estrogenic effects (Schreurs 2004). Cell studies show metabolites of musks produce estrogenic effects (Chou 1999).

Parabens: Cell studies show certain parabens produce estrogenic effects (Routledge 1998; Gomez 2005). In particular, parabens can stimulate the growth of estrogen-sensitive breast cancer cells (Byford 2002; Darbre 2002, 2003; Pugazhendhi 2007), and have been detected in 19 of 20 human breast cancer tumors examined (Darbre 2004). Studies of lab animals also demonstrate estrogenic effects (Routledge 1998; Darbre 2002, 2003; Inui 2003; Mikula 2006).

In women, this potent form of estrogen maintains the reproductive system, guides development of feminine characteristics, and promotes health of many other non-reproductive body functions; in men, estrogens support maturation of germ cells. women of childbearing age: 20 to 400 ppt; post-menopausal women 5 to 25 ppt; men 10 to 60 ppt
Follicle-stimulating hormone Phthalates: Men highly exposed to certain phthalates are more likely to have altered body levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (Duty 2005). Stimulates development and maturation of a follicle in a woman’s ovaries; in men, involved in sperm formation, as well as enhanced production of androgen-binding protein by the Sertoli cells of the testes. women of childbearing age: 5 to 30 international units per liter (IU/L); post-menopausal women 50 to 100 IU/L; men 5 to 20 IU/L
Luteinizing hormone Phthalates: Baby boys consuming breast milk high in some phthalates tend to have altered body levels of both luteinizing hormone and ratios of luteinizing hormone to testosterone (Main 2006). Triggers ovulation in women; in men, stimulates production of testosterone from the Leydig cells in the testes. women: 1.2 to 4.6 ppm; men: 1.6 to 5.5 ppm
Testosterone Phthalates: Baby boys consuming breast milk high in certain phthalates tend to have altered body levels of both testosterone and ratios of luteinizing hormone to testosterone (Main 2006). Animal studies show phthalates can reduce testosterone levels in the body (Lottrup 2006).Triclosan: Cell studies show triclosan can replace testosterone on androgen receptor sites, and can inhibit the growth of androgen-sensitive breast cancer cells treated with testosterone (Gee 2008). Fish studies show changes in fin length and non-significant trends in sex ratio suggesting that triclosan may be weakly androgenic (Foran 2000).Musks: Male lab animals treated with certain parabens show reduced levels of testosterone and increased incidence of reproductive system problems (Oishi 2001, 2002a, 2002b). In men, responsible for development of masculine characteristics; guides anabolic processes relating to muscle mass, bone density, growth, and strength; can be converted to estradiol. women: 0.1 to 0.8 ppb; men: 2.5 to 8 ppb
Androstenedione Musks: A study of women with gynecological and endocrine dysfunction indicates women with high levels of musk ketones are more likely to have altered levels of androstenedione in their bodies (Eisenhardt 2001). In women and men, converted metabolically to testosterone and other androgens, and to estrone. women of childbearing age: 0.6 to 3 ppb; post-menopausal women 0.3 to 8 ppb; men 0.9 to 1.7 ppb
Androstanediol-glucuronide Musks: A study of women with gynecological and endocrine dysfunction indicates women with high levels of some musks are more likely to have altered levels of androstanediol-glucuronide in their bodies (Eisenhardt 2001). In women and men, a primary regulator of secretion of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. women: 0.56 to 3.4 ppb; men 2.7 to 7.6 ppb
Inhibin B Phthalates: Men highly exposed to certain phthalates may show altered body levels of inhibin B (Duty 2005). Inhibits production of follicle-stimulating hormone. women of childbearing age: 45 to 286 ppt; post-menopausal women: less than 7 ppt; men 60 to 300 ppt
Sex-hormone binding globulin Phthalates: Baby boys consuming breast milk high in certain phthalates typically have altered body levels of sex-hormone binding globulin (Main 2006). A glycoprotein that binds to sex hormones, specifically testosterone and estradiol, controlling their activity in the body. women: 1.6 to 7.0 ppt; men 0.57 to 4.2 ppt

 

How can we prevent future exposures?

Because parabens are found in many everyday products, some exposure may be unavoidable. One way to reduce exposure is to switch to paraben-free cosmetics and body care products.

Cosmetics chemicals can alter the hormone system

Thyroid Hormones

 

A survey of some of the latest science on cosmetics chemicals shows these widely used ingredients can disrupt the normal function of the hormone system.

 

 

T3 Phthalates: Men highly exposed to certain phthalates typically show altered levels of T3 in their bodies (Meeker 2007).
Triclosan: Exposure to low levels of triclosan increases the potency of T3, according to a study on tadpoles (Veldhoen 2006). The thyroid hormone system is similar in frogs and humans, suggesting that triclosan may disrupt the human thyroid system. Potent form of thyroid hormone that regulates metabolism and sensitivity to specific adrenal hormones, and affects protein synthesis.  

1.1 to 2.3 ppb

T4 Phthalates: Pregnant women highly exposed to certain phthalates typically have altered levels of T4 in their bodies (Huang 2007). Men highly exposed to certain phthalates tend to have altered levels of T4 in their bodies (Meeker 2007). Less active form of thyroid hormone that regulates metabolism and sensitivity to specific adrenal hormones, and affects protein synthesis.  

40 to 110 ppb

“24 Hour Comprehensive Circadian Endocrine Profile”

Interpretation includes correlation to the Chinese Medicine Body Clock and Diet!

Why Saliva?
Saliva collection is simple, non-invasive, and can be performed in the privacy of ones home. The sample is sent by mail to the laboratory. The results will be sent to the individual or the referring practitioner within fifteen working days following the receipt of the sample(s). The hormones are stable at room temperature for up to five days and require no further handling for shipment.

Saliva is considered to be a better indicator of biologically active hormone levels than blood – more accurately reflecting the body’s functional hormonal status. Over 20 years of research has proven the effectiveness of using saliva (instead of serum or urine) as a diagnostic medium to measure the “free” (unbound) bioavailable fraction of circulation hormones. Saliva testing provides a simple non-invasive means of determining if hormone levels are within the expected normal range for one’s gender and age. It is also an accurate method of evaluating how hormone replacement therapy, topical hormone creams, sublingual drops, diet, herbal therapy and exercise influence these levels.

The following 11 saliva tests are performed in this Comprehensive 24 hour Circadian Endocrine Profile.

 

Cortisol “Adrenal Stress” Testing
“The root to balancing hormones starts with adrenal support.”

EndoPure and Neuro-Emotional Remedies support the adrenals like nothing else.  By using Neuro-Emotional Remedies along with EndoPure, adrenal cortisol levels along with meridians are balanced safely and naturally.

The Adrenal Stress panel provides a reliable stress marker, revealing adrenal imbalances. Changes in circulating levels of cortisol and DHEA indicate shifts in adrenal function that can affect an individual’s energy, disease resistance, and emotional state.

The adrenal hormones, cortisol and DHEA-SO4, are directly involved in the body’s growth, immune response, and cardiovascular function. Cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, depression, and osteoporosis are some of the conditions that result from adrenal hormone imbalance. They affect carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism, act as anti-inflammatory agents, modulate thyroid function, and help in stress related conditions.

For the first time in history, this innovative saliva test employs cutting edge twenty-first century technology with the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine.

Comprehensive Panel Includes the following Hormones:
5 Cortisol Tests • DHEA • Progesterone • Estradiol • Testosterone
Food Intolerance Tests • Gliaden (Gluten Intolerance)

Testing includes 5 cortisol saliva tests

1) Body Clock Relationship to testing times according to the Five Element Theory of Chinese Medicine. Body Clock

2) The actual specimen time corresponds to an organ, meridian & adrenal function.

3) A Neuro-Emotional Remedy will be recommended for each organ and meridian related to an abnormal test time result.

1) 8 a.m. relates to Stomach Meridian
2) 12 noon relates to Heart Meridian
3) 4 p.m. relates to Bladder Meridian
4) 8 p.m. relates to Circulation Meridian
5) 2 a.m. relates to Liver Meridian

Radiation Homeopathic Formula

•   EMF & EMR

•   Nuclear Radiation

•   X-rays: mammograms, dental, chiropractic, any xrays.

Let’s identify what the various types of Radiation are and the sources!

EMF & EMR

  EMF means Electro Magnetic Field. EMR means Electro Magnetic Radiation. EMF is broad term which includes electric fields generated by charged particles, magnetic fields generated by charged particles in motion, and radiated fields such as TV, radio, and microwaves.  Electric fields are measured in units of Volts per meter or V/m.  Magnetic fields are measured in milli-Gauss or mG.  The field is always strongest near the source and diminishes as you move away from the source.  These energies have the ability to influence particles at great distances.  For example, the radiation from a radio tower influences the atoms within a distant radio antenna, allowing it to pick up the signal.

•     Electro-Magnetic Radiation (EMR):  Radiation is made up of oscillating electric and magnetic fields and propagated with the speed of light.  Includes gamma radiation, X-rays,ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation, and radar andradio waves.

•     Electro-Pollution is insidious and affects all of us in so many ways……and yet, we often do not make the connection between our compromised functioning and exposure to the world of EMF/EMR and Wireless technology.  Computers, portable cordless phones, cell phone, electronics, cell towers, WiFI, are all suspect when it comes to our health, neurotransmitter balance, and a compromised immune system.

The Effects

•     On biological tissue:  This remains the most controversial aspect of the EMF issue with virtually all scientists agreeing that more research is necessary to determine safe or dangerous levels.  Iron, necessary for healthy blood and stored in the brain, is also highly effected by EMF.

•     The permeability of the cell membrane of our nerves, blood vessels, skin, and other organs are affected.

•     The intricate DNA of the chromosomes has been shown to be effected by EMF’s as well.  In fact, throughout our bodies, every biochemical process involves precisely choreographed movement of EMF-sensitive atoms, molecules, and ions.

 

The Danger

•      After more than 25 years of intensive study, the health and safety conscious Swedish government has established a safety limit for exposure to ELF magnetic field at 2.5 mG, and VLF magnetic fields at only 0.25 mG.

•      Although the U.S. government has been slower to act in establishing its own standards, the Swedish standard is generally accepted throughout the world.   What this possibly means is that if someone consistently experiences exposure which exceeds the standard, that person could be at risk for developing health problems which can range from headaches, fatigue, and dizziness to skin rashes, miscarriages and neuro-endocrine disruptors, leukemia, and cancer.  In fact, numerous court cases where plaintiffs claim to have been injured by EMF’s are now in progress.

•      Even though the controversy of conflicting scientific studies persists, it seems strange that cigarettes and alcohol are packaged with warnings we already know about, and the sodium, fat, and cholesterol content of foods must appear on the labels, but NO ONE TELLS YOU THAT THE AVERAGE HAIR DRYER, VACUUM CLEANER, OR CAN OPENER YOU USE EMITS AN AMAZING 300 mG OR MORE!!!

 

Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation

•     Radiation is defined as the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum ranging from 10 kilohertz (10,000 cycles per second) to 300 gigahertz (300 billion cycles per second).  AM and FM radio, broadcast television, cellular phones and WiFi are all examples of technologies that utilize RF radiation.

•     Cellular networks in the United States typically operate in the 800 megahertz (800 million cycles per second) or 1,900 megahertz range, whereas WiFi most commonly operates at 2.45 gigahertz. Health and environmental concerns are raised both by the power level or intensity of RF radiation emissions, as well as by the characteristics of the signal itself (e.g., its frequency, modulations, and pulses).

•     Review this website:  http://www.microwavenews.com/

 

Cell Towers

•     Cell Towers that are SENDING information are the harmful ones.

•     Cell Towers that are RECEIVING information are harmless.

•     If you have a cell tower near your residence or your office, find out if it is sending or receiving microwaves.

•     Go to www.antennasearch.com.  You will find  location of cell towers near you and who owns it. Call the company that owns the tower and ask if it is sending or receiving.  Cell towers that send microwaves should be around 3 miles away from your home.

Protocol for Radiation Detoxification

•    Dr. Dale’s Homeopathic Radiation Formula can be effectively used by itself for adults or children.  For adultswho have had much radiation exposure you can also follow this entire protocol for radiation detoxification.

Adult dosage:  5 drops twice daily; 5 days on, two days off. You may only need this formula once per week after using it for two weeks.

Children over 5 years old or those who suffer symptoms that are elusive and have had exposure to the various types of radiation in this document:  Three drops once daily, three to four days per week and then once per month or according to your holistic health providers recommendations. Also include the Lymph Detox three drops two days per week.

•    Lymph Detoxification:  5 drops two times daily, 5 days on and two days off.

•    Whole Body Deep Cleanse Kit or the Slow Detoxification that utilizes these products

•    Healthful Organic Diet and Lots of Clean Water

•    Cell Phone usage:  Keep it to a minimum.  Don’t let children use cell phones or put them up to their head. Use the RF airtube headset or a speakerphone; a BioPRo Cell Chip and Universal Chip on Computers and even portable phones. I wear the BioPro pendent when traveling or when using my computer.

Human Intestinal Parasites

An article in The Nutrition and Dietary Consultant (May 1996) says it is estimated that 200 million people are infected by intestinal parasites. It also estimates that one in four people worldwide is infected by roundworms.

High infection rate in the USA is surprising to many, but most of these creatures have always been living within our bodies. When the immune system weakens, they can grow to numbers that cause physical harm.

People poison their bodies with chemicals, drugs, processed and over-cooked foods, and this starts the process that allows the parasites to take over our inner environment.  When they take over, they are in control, whether you know it or not. When we make the wrong choices and do not take preventive measures, parasites win.

Human intestinal parasites are commonly found in air, food, and water and can cause constipation, stomach bloating, disease, anemia, asthma, diarrhea, digestive disorders, fatigue, low immune system, nervousness, and skin rash.  Most people with infection will not face this reality or even want to think about this subject and will continue in their suffering.

There are hundreds of different types of parasites worms living in human bodies. Some are microscopic in size while others can be seen quite easily. These common organisms can be found everywhere in our environment, in the air we breath, in the water we drink, or in the food we eat.

A parasite is an organism that lives on or in other organisms, from which it obtains nutrients to live and causes harm in the process.  Its name comes from the Greek word para that means beside, and sitos, which means food.

Most parasites require some host to complete their life cycle.  Animals can also serve as the host.  The parasite will vary in size from one-thousandth of one micron to whale tapeworms, which are one hundred feet long.

Parasites and worms can invade your bodies through food and water intake, through transmitting agents (like mosquitoes), through sexual conduct, or through the nose and skin.  People with intestinal parasite infections are usually under-nourished and weak, infected with virus, fungus, or bacteria, and have various types of chemical and metal poisoning.  Human intestinal parasites can be present in any disease, in any person, at any age.

Parasites are responsible for many health problems because they secrete toxins and steal the vital nutrients from our bodies. They can irritate or exaggerate other health problems a person may be experiencing.  Everyone is at risk and under their mercy during parasitic infections.

We create the perfect living environment for parasites when the bowel becomes ineffective in the elimination of our waste products. The build-up of fecal material on the walls of the colon is attributed to constipation and also the amounts of junk food, chemicals, bad fats, and sweets we consume.  We poison ourselves from our own toxic waste and the waste from these creatures (auto intoxication) when this ideal habitat is created. Testing for parasites is only available for about five percent of the known varieties with twenty percent accuracy.

People suffering with cancer are afflicted with worms that often lump together and look like tumors.  Female worms can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type.  Most doctors are not trained to recognize the symptoms of parasitic infections. The only way to avoid the problems associated with parasite infections is by educating yourself.

Parasite Varieties

The CDC estimates that the number of parasites present in the United States alone is in the thousands. These parasites are biochemically complex creatures in their life histories, development, reproductive cycles, nutritional requirements, and disease manifestation. They are categorized according to their structure, shape, function, and reproductive ability. These include microscopic organisms (protozoa); roundworms, pinworms, and hookworms (nematoda); tapeworms (cestoda); and flukes (trematoda).

There are 3,200 varieties of parasites in the four major categories:Protozoa, Nematoda, Cestoda, and Trematoda

PROTOZOA:  the single cell parasites; amoebae, protozoa infections, neospora, Toxoplasmosis, cryptosporidium, giardia, Sarcocystis and Trichomonas vaginalis

Making up approximately 70 percent of all parasites, protozoa are invisible to the naked eye. They are one-celled microscopic organisms, but don’t let their size fool you. Certain protozoan, through their intensely rapid reproductive ability, can take over the intestinal tract of their host; and from there go on to other organs and tissues. Some feed on red blood cells. Some protozoa produce cysts – closed sacs in which they may be safely transported through food and water from one person to another. In the cyst state, protozoa are safe from destruction by human digestive juices. These one-celled ‘vampires’ can actually destroy the tissues of their hosts. According to experts, an estimated 7 million people across the U.S. have some form of protozoa living inside of them.

Common protozoa include: Endolimax nana, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, Cryptosporidum parvum, Blastocystis hominis, Trichomonas vaginalis, Toxoplasma gondii, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium muris, Pneumocystis carinii, Plasmodium malariae, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium falciparum, Leishmania donovani, Leishmania tropica, and Leishmania braziliensis

Amoebae are an irregular shaped microorganism that infects the end of the smaller intestine and colon.  Amoebiasis is the most common infection and is caused by the species Entamoeba histolytica.  Amoebae also release an enzyme that causes ulcers or abscesses where they enter the bloodstream. They can eventually reach other organs like the brain or liver. These microorganisms can grow to 25 micrometers in diameter.

Cryptosporidium is associated with water-borne outbreaks. The victim might experience diarrhea and abdominal pain lasting for about ten days.

Giardia is the most prevalent intestinal parasite in humans and found in drinking water.  Giardia resides in the smaller intestine and at times in the gall bladder.  Millions of these giardia organisms will coat the intestinal walls and prevent the absorption of nutrients and later cause illness.  Symptoms are mild to moderate abdominal cramps, intestinal gas, light colored stools, bad absorption, weakness, chills, stomach bloating, and diarrhea. (14 um x 10 um)

Trichomonas vaginalis are pathogens that reside in the vagina in females and the urethra, epididymis, and the swelling in the prostate gland in males. In women there is some yellowish discharge accompanied by itching and burning.

Malaria, the most prevalent and debilitating disease among the protozoa type, is caused by Plasmodium.  About two million people die annually from Malaria.

NEMATODE: common roundworms (Ascaris lumbricoides), hookworms, whipworms, pinworms, heart worms, Strongyloides, Stercoralis, Ancylostoma, caninum, toxocara worm, and trichinosis.  Size can vary from 0.2 to 35 centimeters.

While the protozoa are only single-celled, nematode creatures are multi cellular. The adult worms multiply by producing eggs called ova or larvae. The eggs usually become infectious in soil or in an intermediate host before humans are infected. It is interesting to note that unless the worm infection is heavy, many individuals do not show signs of disease. While it may be unpleasant to consider, it is true that the human host can coexist quite comfortably with a few worms, unless they reproduce in great numbers and create organ obstruction. Experts claim that ‘some type of worm is already in the intestines of over 75 percent of the world’s population.’ This is a frightening statement.

Common nematode include: Roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), Hookworm (Necator Americanus, Ancylostoma duodenal), Pinworm (Enterobius vermicularis), Roundworm (Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati), Heart worm (Dirofilaria immitis), Strongyloides (Stronglyoides stercoralis), Trichinella (Trichinella spiralis), Filaria (Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Onchocerca volvulus, Loa loa, Mansonella streptocerca, Mansonella perstans, Mansonella ozzardi), and Anisakine larvae

Roundworms look similar to an earthworm and can produce 200,000 eggs daily.  Approximately 1,008 million people are infected, making it the most common worldwide parasitic infection. The most frequent symptom from roundworms is upper abdominal discomfort. Other symptoms are asthma, eye pain, insomnia, and rashes due to the secretions or waste products from the worms.  Large numbers can cause blockages in the intestinal tract, hemorrhage when penetrating the intestinal wall, appendicitis, peritonitis, abscesses in the liver, hemorrhagic pancreatitis, loss of appetite, and insufficient absorption of digested foods. Adults grow to 15 inches long.

Hookworm larvae penetrate the skin. When hookworms reach adulthood, they can sap the victim’s strength, vitality, and overall well-being. Young worms use their teeth to burrow through the intestinal wall and feed on your blood. Symptoms from hookworm infection are iron deficiency, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, craving to eat soil, protein deficiency, dry skin and hair, skin irritations, edema, distended abdomen, stunted growth, delayed puberty, mental dullness, cardiac failure and death. (1/2 inch long)

Pinworms can infect one in five children. Symptoms are itching and irritation of the anus or vagina, digestive disorders, insomnia, irritability or nervousness. Female pinworms crawl out of the anus and lay about 15,000 eggs per day. Once airborne, the eggs can survive about two days anywhere in your living environment.  Worldwide, about 500 million people are infected with pinworms. This worm is white and can grow to about 1/2 inch in length.

Whipworm infections are estimated at several hundred million worldwide. Symptoms of whipworms are bloody stools, pain in the lower abdomen, weight loss, rectal pro-lapse, nausea, and anemia.  Hemorrhage can occur when worms penetrate the intestinal wall and bacterial infections usually follow.  Whipworms grow to 1-2 inches length.

CESTODA (Tapeworms):  bladder worms, pork tapeworms, broad fish, dog tapeworms, dwarf and rat tapeworms.

Among the oldest known parasites, tapeworms are considered humanity’s largest intestinal inhabitant. They each have a scolex (head) that attaches to the intestinal wall. As long as the head remains attached to the intestinal mucosa, a new worm can grow from it. Tapeworms do not contain digestive tracts but get their nourishment by absorbing partially digested substances from the host. They are whitish in color, flat, and ribbon-like, with a covering that is a transparent skin-like layer.

Common cestoda include: Beef tapeworm (Taenia saginata), Pork tapeworm (Taenia solium), Fish tapeworm (Diphyllobothrium latum), and Dog tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum).  Broad fish tapeworms may grow to 35 feet long and can live ten years inside the person’s intestines.  Some tapeworms can lay as many as one million eggs per day.  Their bodies are in separate segments with hooks and suction cups on their skull.

TREMATODE (Flukes):  Flatworms; bladder, blood, liver, lung, kidney, and intestinal flukes.

Trematodes are leaf-shaped flatworms also known as flukes. They are parasitic during nearly all of their life-cycle forms. The cycle begins when larvae are released into freshwater by infected snails. The free-swimming larvae can then directly penetrate the skin of the human host or are ingested after encysting in or on various edible vegetation, fish, or crustaceans.

Common trematodes include: Intestinal fluke (Fasciolopsis buski), Blood fluke (Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma mansoni), Schistosoma haematobium), Liver fluke (Clonorchis sinensis), Oriental lung fluke (Paragonimus westermani), and Sheep liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica)

Human infections of flukes (Schistosomes) are in excess of 250 million worldwide.  They can cause severe diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, and liver and destroy blood cells.  Size varies from 1 to 2.5 centimeters in length (1/2 to 3 inches long).

Spirochetes are very tiny organisms that are spiral-shaped and can multiply in the blood and lymphatic system.  Types include Spirochetes (largest), Saprospira, Cristispira, Treponema (smallest), and many more. The host or carrier is usually lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and flying insects, which then transmit the infection to humans. Spirochetes are responsible for relapsing fever, infectious jaundice, Lymes disease, sores, ulcers, Vincent angina, and Wyles disease.

Some parasite worms have the ability to fool bodies into thinking they are a normal part of the tissue or organ and the immune system will not fight off these intruders.  When these alien invaders are established in our bodies, they do several things:

–       Worm infections can cause physical trauma by perforating (burrowing) the intestines, the circulatory system, the lungs, the liver, or the whole body.

–       They can erode, damage, or block certain organs by lumping together in balls or tumors. They can be mistaken for cancer tumors, and travel into the brain, heart and lungs.

–       They rob us of our vital vitamin and mineral nutrients, and our amino acids needed for digestion. Some people can become anemic (anemia) and will feel drowsy after meals.

–       They give off certain metabolic waste products (toxic waste) that poison our bodies. This particular condition is called Verminous Intoxification.  Most infected people have trouble disposing of the toxins that are re-absorbed through the intestines.  The human body has to work twice as hard to remove these toxic waste products.

–       Depress the immune system, which leads to further degeneration, fatigue, and illness.

–       They can destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.

Some conditions that promote parasitic infections are excess mucus, an imbalance in the intestinal flora, chronic constipation, and toxic internal environment.

The nose is supposed to act as the natural airway for respiration and the main inlet for oxygen.  It also acts as an air conditioner, by filtering, moistening, and warming the air that is breathed. The hairs and mucus membranes help prevent dust from entering the rest of the respiratory tract. The nose is responsible for smell and gives the human voice its own characteristic tone.

Problems associated with the nose are sinus (sinusitis, an inflammation), nasal polyps, and tumors. These can cause restrictions in the nasal passage and hinder the amount of oxygen needed.

Bones surrounding the nose contain honeycomb (air filled cavities between the outer and inner layers of the skull) known as the facial sinuses. These are comprised of two frontal, one sphenoid, two ethmoidal, and two maxillary sinuses.  Each sinus drains mucus into the nasal passages through tiny ducts or channels.

Sinus inflammation or infections can be caused by an abscess in an upper tooth or from bacteria and viruses.  Parasites or candida can also take up residence in all those little nooks and crannies and are the hardest to eliminate.  After time, the sinuses can become encrusted in toxic matter like in the colon.  Mycoplasmas infecting the sinus will cause drainage with bad nasal odors. Swabbing the inside of the nose with one drop of Oil of Oregano on an ear swab may help over time.

Polyp or tumors, which bulge out into the nasal passage may also be filled with parasites. It is important to clear the nasal passages so you can breathe in the Breath of Life, more oxygen. Self-examination of the nasal passages is possible with a small flash light held in the front of the nose and looking in the mirror. The airway should clear almost to the throat. If you can only see in about an inch, problems may exist.

Humans with worm infections may feel bloated, tired, toxic or hungry or have allergies, asthma, gas, digestive disorders, or unclear thinking. Damage and symptoms will vary on the type of parasite infection.

Parasite Signs (Adults and Children):

–       Allergies, Many allergies are caused by worm infections. Tissue becomes inflamed and reactions to foods are the result when eosinophils (white blood cells) are increased due to them. Extreme skin rashes with blisters and food allergies or sensitivities may result.

–       Anemia, Worms leach nutrients from bodies causing anemia. When they are present in large numbers, they can create enough blood loss to cause anemia or iron deficiency in some people.

–       Constipation, some worms can obstruct certain organs like the colon causing constipation, liver and the bile duct.

–       Diarrhea, Most of the time diarrhea is nature’s way of removing toxins.

–       Fatigue, Symptoms include tiredness, flue-like symptoms, apathy, depression, and lack of concentration.

–       Gas and stomach bloating, some parasites live in the upper intestine, which can cause both gas and stomach bloating.

–       Immune Dysfunction, Parasites depress the immune system by decreasing immunoglobulin.

–       Nervousness, the waste products from parasites irritate the nervous system, resulting in anxiety and restlessness.

Other Signs of Parasites in Children

–       Blisters appear on the inside of the lower lip, wiping of the nose, restlessness and grinding of the teeth at night, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactive, bed wetting, headaches, sensitivities to light, twitching eyelid, gum, rectum, or nose bleeding are all signs children may have parasites.

If parasites are the problem, it is very important to take nutritional supplements as some worms suck your vitamins and minerals directly out of the blood. Others absorb your nutrients through their outer skin layer. These nutrients need replacing daily.

High carbohydrate diets, low in protein and high in alkaline, have been found to make parasitic infections worse. Sugar should also be avoided completely because parasites thrive on it and it is possible you could have candida. This candida or yeast infection will create an environment in the colon that equals the environment needed for parasites to thrive. Foods that lower pH from high alkaline conditions in the colon are apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice.

Having a healthy immune system is the best defense against parasites and disease!

How to Reduce the Risk of Parasitic Infections

–       Wash all fruits and vegetables. Scrape off the wax substance on the outer surface of any fruit or vegetable with knife before washing. Anything with nicks or recess can harbor just about anything and should be cut out. Avoid eating grapes with open splits. Washing in ozonated water or food grade hydrogen peroxide (1 teaspoon per gallon of water) will kill parasites. Rinse well after to remove bleach residue.

–       Whether you eat cooked or raw meat, I would spray meat or fish with a mixture of water and food grade hydrogen peroxide (one quart water to one tsp of hydrogen peroxide) before cooking. Keep all work surfaces clean.

–       Drink pure water. Well water can contain various types of parasites and needs to be filtered. Parasites are associated with many water-borne outbreaks and are highly resistant to conventional methods of disinfecting.

–       Practice good personal hygiene. Wash your hands before eating and after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, or handling pets. Keep your fingernails short and clean.

–       Keep your living environment clean. The dust in your house can contain human skin, soil particles, or fecal material from dust mites and cockroaches.  An easy test to determine if this is the problem is by looking across the room when the sunlight is shining through the window and checking for particles floating in the air. Then let the kids run around and recheck. The elimination of carpets reduces this problem considerably.

–       Do not walk barefoot on warm, moist soil or while working in the garden.  Parasites are abundant in soil and can absorb (penetrate) through skin cells.  Fertilizers are added to garden soil and are the pets favorite place to go. Use gloves and shoes for protection.

–       Be careful swimming in rivers, lakes, ponds, or public swimming pools.  Avoid swallowing or drinking the water while swimming anywhere.  Avoid swimming if cuts or open sores are present.

–       If pets are infested with parasites, de-worm them and keep them outside. You are at a higher risk of contracting worms when pets are allowed indoors.

–       Overuse of antibiotics. Reducing the numbers of friendly bacteria in the colon allows for the proliferation of parasites.

–       Global travel. Ten years ago, you might have been at a higher risk for parasite infections when traveling to another country. Today, you may be at an even higher risk of infection by staying home.

–       Use more cloves with every meal. Adding some cloves to foods will help kill the eggs from parasites in the intestinal tract. Cloves added to coffee or herbal teas add better taste.

The sizes of microbes can be approximated by using the following rule of thumb.

VIRUSES are the smallest of all infectious agents, averaging about 100 nanometers (100 billionths of a meter) in length. They have so few genes and proteins of their own that in order to reproduce they need to commandeer the machinery of the cells they invade.

BACTERIA vary widely in size and shape, but tend to be at least 10 times larger than viruses, or at least 1 micrometer (1 millionth of a meter) long. They are single-cell organisms that reproduce independently.

SINGLE-CELL PARASITES tend to be at least 10 times larger than bacteria, or about .01 millimeter long.

MULTI CELLULAR PARASITES are so large they can usually be seen with the naked eye. Tapeworms, for instance, can reach a length of 6 meters (20 feet).

Recap!

Food and water are the most common sources of parasite transmission. Since most of us eat three times a day and drink water frequently throughout the day, our exposure to these sources is constant. Tap water has been found to be contaminated with parasitic organisms. Both plant and animal foods carry parasites, and cleaning and cooking methods often do not destroy them before ingestion. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) cites food as the catalyst behind 80 percent of the pathogenic outbreaks in the U.S. Most are linked to restaurants and delis where less than sanitary conditions exist — from food preparation and storage to the utensils and servers’ hands.

Animals, just like humans, can become infected with parasites. Internally, contaminated water and food spread parasitic problems to our pets. Externally, animals become infected by parasites on their bodies, especially on their fur, because of exposure to infected animal wastes.  By forgetting to wash your hands, even one time after handling or cleaning up after your animal, you can transmit the parasite to you. Pets are a wonderful part of our lives. They provide comfort, companionship, protection, amusement, and unconditional love for their owners. Yet, pets, like humans, are often victims of serious infections that can unintentionally be passed on to their owners. In fact, there is a whole set of diseases classified as ‘zoonoses’ (animal-transmitted diseases) in parasitology textbooks.  Animals are major carriers of parasites, and most physicians, let alone the general public, are unaware of this fact. Experts have projected that of the 110 million pet dogs and cats in this country, over one half may be infected with at least one or more different kinds of parasites. Considering these numbers, the potential for transmission of parasitic infection from animals to humans is extremely high.

Ocean Meds consists of seaweeds specially chosen for its high concentration of Fucoidan.  Fucoidan is rapidly increasing in popularity as a support of many important cellular and body functions.   Hundreds of studies have been completed of the components of seaweeds.  Studies have shown support of theimmune system, cellular metabolic activity, anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, and antithrombotic activities.

Seaweed has been used for thousands of years as a food for its broad spectrum nutritional value with minerals.  Some of these vital nutrients are magnesium, calcium, iron, copper, zinc, boron, and iodine.   These are important elements in cellular function, metabolism and cell health.  There are also various vitamins in our seaweed complex which include B1, B2, Niacin, B12, E, and a considerable amount of vitamin C. 

The most active ingredient in Fucoidan is fucose, which is a sulfated polysaccharide that is very important for its function in communication from one cell to another cell via sue of glycoproteins and glycolipids.  More and more information is discovered about the benefits of fucose, and the proper form and bioavailability of iodine and minerals that may not be plentiful in our diet or completely absent. Dr. Dale’s Ocean Meds also has a spectrum of complimentary natural anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients such as  MSM, Hylaronic Acid, and essential fatty acids that support cardio, immune, and joint health. 

Fucoidan contains natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients.  They may inhibit inflammation in the body. Excessive inflammation can result in pain and damage to the body, including the tissues, muscles, cells and joints. The human body makes several chemical mediators of inflammation. Levels of these inflammatory and painful chemicals in the body may be higher in people with arthritis who are experiencing symptoms than in pain free individuals with arthritis. There is evidence that controlling the production of inflammatory mediators and chemical pathways in the body may help improve conditions such as arthritis, asthma, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease including ulcerative colitis, all of which involve elements of inflammation.

There is a delicate balance of nutrients necessary for proper functioning of all the body’s systems.  The Beta Glucan contained in the Ocean Meds contributes to this balance and supports the immune system by feeding white blood cells. Regular use of Beta Glucan can decrease food cravings. The Iodine and iodide contained in the brown seaweed assists the thyroid gland to help promote healthy metabolism, energy levels, and weight.

The seabuckthorn berry provides many nutrients multivitamins, protein, minerals, essential and rare lipids and a broad spectrum of anti-oxidants. The berries of seabuckthorn are one of the best known natural sources of vitamins A, C, E, and carotenes, and are rich in several B vitamins, as well as  EFA’s and Flavonoids.  The Chinese were the first to use sea buckthorn therapeutically over a thousand years ago.  The Tibetan Medical book, SibuYidian that is 158 chapters long, has 30 chapters on seabuckthorn’s medicinal properties. Among these are inducing expectoration, opening inhibited lung chi, dispersing dampness, tonifying the Yin and strengthening the yang.  Many entries refer to its capacity to strengthen the spleen and stomach, to promote circulation, and remove blood stasis.
