WONDERFUL BENEFITS, including :

Relieves Anxiety & Stress                                                                                                             One of the most popular and well-known uses of Hemp Oil is to get relief from stress and anxiety. The natural compounds found in this oil, including the famed THC, which is what gives Hemp the distinction of a drug in many countries, are very good for releasing pleasure hormones and relaxing the mind, reducing stress and inducing a sense of calmness and relaxation.

Promotes Good Sleep
For people who suffer from insomnia, constant anxiety during the night, or simply struggle to get a sound, restful night of undisturbed sleep, Hemp Essential Oil works like a charm. By relaxing the body and mind, and inducing a lower energy level, it will be easier to get your heart rate down and clear your head before a long night of peaceful slumber.

Appetite Booster
It is well known that people who consume Hemp in other forms notice increased appetite, famously called “the munchies”. However, Hemp Essential Oil can help regulate your appetite and induce hunger, while also stimulating your digestive system to operate at a regular level. This can help people who want to gain weight quickly, particularly after an extended illness or injury recovery.

Pain Reliever
Hemp Essential Oil works as a great pain reliever and is regularly suggested for people with inflammation, chronic pain, and even emergency pain relief. There is a very good reason why people who suffer from cancer often turn to hemp related options, including Hemp Essential Oil, when the pain of chemotherapy or the disease itself becomes unbearable.

Helps Prevent Cancer
Although there is still some controversy over this, and a great deal of research still ongoing, early reports have shown that the active ingredients in Hemp Essential Oil can have preventative effects on cancer, and can also cause reduction in tumor size, thereby making it easier to effectively beat cancer for those patients already suffering from this tragic disease.

Improves Heart Health
The volatility in Hemp Essential Oil can also help to improve heart health by balancing out the negative oils in your system. It can stimulate antioxidant processes as well, scraping off excess cholesterol and maximizing the health of your cardiovascular system.

Skin Care
The powerful components of Hemp essential oil are used to protect the skin, and can be consumed both internally and applied externally to achieve this important side effect. It can stimulate the shedding of dead skin and faster re-growth of healthy, glowing skin. It is also known to prevent wrinkles and signs of aging, while also protecting against eczema and psoriasis.

Reduces Glaucoma
In terms of eye health, Hemp and Hemp Essential Oil have been linked to a reduction in glaucoma and a prevention of macular degeneration. Eye health is one of the major reasons why people turn to Hemp essential oil as they age.

Eliminates Headaches
Topically applying some Hemp Essential Oil at the temples or the spot of intensity for a migraine or a headache can be an effective way to get relief. Many people turn to prescriptions for Hemp and Hemp essential oil due to its potent defense against crippling headaches and pain.

Word of Caution

Although this list clearly shows that Hemp Essential Oil can be an effective remedy for many common health conditions, it is still a potent chemical substance extracted from a plant with psychotropic substances. Therefore, you should always be very careful while using such an essential oil, including the amount you use and the conditions under which you use it. Speak to a professional about mixing essential oils and present medications before adding any new elements to your health regimen. Also, use of Hemp is restricted/banned in many countries, so consult a local health specialist before use.

There is no healing system more powerful than that which employs Nature’s primordial substances; materials so pure and close to nature that they yield benefits without the typical side effects of most drugs. The secret to safe and effective medicine is found in using medicinal substances that do not have side effects in reasonable doses. This is the very meaning of safe, something that will not harm or hurt you.

I received a letter from a professional colleague named George Eby in 2007 that stated that his daughter was destroyed by the terrible side effects of a special type of antibiotic called fluoroquinolones. He said,

“My daughter was stricken with this horrible affliction. Cipro sensitivity causes long term (multiple years to life) chronic pain, weakness and tendon weakness leading to tendon breakage and many other horrible effects, some physical and some mental. This is something that everyone needs to know about. We have been destroyed by cipro. I don’t think there is much anyone can do, except to give her magnesium, which is somewhat of an antidote. I am very worried but I haven’t lost hope, but I am being realistic. Some of the tendon damage is necrotic and permanent. However, we have studies with rattlesnake venom that produce necrosis on animals and simply applying magnesium (chloride) and zinc (gluconate) topically, the necrosis vanishes.” Ten days later I received this email from George.

Topical magnesium chloride for 10 days = well daughter!

There is a power and a force in magnesium chloride that cannot be equalled anywhere else in the world of medicine. There is no substitute for magnesium in human physiology; nothing comes even close to it in terms of its effect on overall cell physiology. It goes against a strong gale wind of medical science to ignore magnesium chloride used transdermally in the treatment of any chronic or acute disorder.

 

 

The Power of Magnesium

In the emergency room medicines have to be safe while delivering an instant life saving burst of healing power. Magnesium obviously is the heavy weight champion in this regard though there is a terrible ignorance about this fact. It’s like medical hypnosis; doctors cannot see what is in front of their very eyes. They have a medical super weapon that unfortunately no one can make much money off, so it’s not supported in the literature or in medical schools. Talking about the blinding light of conflict of interest, in the area of medicine it kills millions. In the area of magnesium medicine there is a mountain range of scientists who have for decade’s penetrated magnesium’s secrets. There are four hundred references in my eBook “ Transdermal Magnesium Therapy”, the majority linking to original medical research.

Magnesium is life saving and that is power. It is as simple as that! Magnesium has the power to reduce human suffering in a wide variety of clinical situations. Results of a 10-year study published in the August 28, 2008 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine found that magnesium sulfate administered to women delivering before 32 weeks of gestation reduced the risk of cerebral palsy by 50 percent.[ii] The Beneficial Effects of Antenatal Magnesium Sulfate (BEAM) trial was conducted in 18 centers in the U.S., including Northwestern Memorial, and is the first prenatal intervention ever found to reduce the instance of cerebral palsy related to premature birth. Magnesium sulfate is traditionally used in obstetrics to stop premature labor and prevent seizures in women with hypertension.

Obviously if a medicine is safe and strong enough for emergency situations it is going to help us with chronic diseases. The field of cardiology has to deal with heart disease as both an acute and chronic disorder and that is just one more reason they should fall heads of heels in love with magnesium chloride. Magnesium is truly astounding in terms of safety, low cost and proven effectiveness.

Put in the clearest terms possible, our suggestion from the first day for cancer patients is to almost drown oneself in transdermally applied magnesium chloride. George Eby used on his slight daughter approximately one ounce applied to the skin a day.

Magnesium is life saving, it is as simple as that.

How to treat Magnesium Deficiency?

First I would suggest that you get a copy of “ Transdermal Magnesium Therapy”, so you can learn more about this revolutionary method of bringing your magnesium levels up. I recommend the use of magnesium chloride over any other form. I also recommend to use magnesium oil and apply it transdermally to skin in massage or baths as opposed to taking oral tablet which take too long and have to go through the digestive tract first where many problems can affect absorption.

If it irritates your skin at first, dilute it half and half with spring water till you get more used to it. You can also use it in baths, but the bath flakes are more economical for this…..and you can alternate the baths with the body applications. If you can get someone to give you a massage with magnesium oil this is a wonderful way to obtain even more benefits.

Although a person take months to correct a deficiency in magnesium, the benefits of supplementation can be noticed in the first few days of its use. Next after transdermal magnesium chloride I prefer the use of a liquid form taken orally, but these might cause diarrhea that limits the purpose of taking the magnesium to raise up levels.It is possible to raise levels even more by using magnesium oil on the skin and by taking it in orally indrinking water. Simply spray a few sprays into a glass of water (5-10 sprays/glass of water) and drink it.If this causes diarrhea cut back on the amount put into the water…..just do this once a day along with the spraying on the skin, bath or footbath use.

Magnesium oil does not require specific dosages as any excess used will be excreted by healthy kidneys (unless someone goes way off base in taking/using too much).

Combining Oral with Transdermal

One of the most luxurious medical treatments on earth is to receive magnesium massages on a consistent basis. Having at least an ounce of what is called magnesium oil rubbed all over one’s body by either a trained or even untrained massage therapist is simply heavenly. One can also do this oneself meaning cover one’s body all over with the magnesium oil like one would sunscreen and go out in the sun and have some fun.

Another method of administration is pouring magnesium chloride into ones bath at high concentrations and soak in a hot tub, perhaps with a cup of sodium bicarbonate in it. On page 201 of my Transdermal Magnesium Therapy book I recommend 2-8 oz (56, 6 -226, 4 g) of Magnesium Oil for a full body bath (ca 100liter). These initial recommendations for baths were very low. My excuse is the inexperience of the early days of transdermal magnesium therapy and also that here in Brazil we don’t have a bathtub so my experience has been with body spraying and magnesium massage. I am now recommending much higher dosages for baths ranging anywhere from 2 to 4 pounds to even six pounds for professional use in clinics and spas.

A third avenue of administration is to simply drink magnesium chloride in ones water or juice. The best way is to combine one of the transdermal routes with oral[iii] for concentrated doses that achieve maximum therapeutic effect.

Each spray of Magnesium Oil contains approximately 18 milligramsof elemental magnesium.[iv] An ounce would contain just over 3,300 mg.Five sprays in a glass of water would thus be almost 100 milligrams.[v]

Three to five to even ten sprays of magnesium chloride in a glass of pure water or juice is an excellent way to take magnesium internally. It assists digestion, counteracts excess acidity in the stomach, and delivers magnesium swiftly into the bloodstream for distribution to all the cells of the body. Minerals like magnesium in ionic liquid form are vastly superior to pill forms. Much more magnesium will get absorbed and absorption will not depend on hydrochloric acid levels.

A sane rule of thumb for magnesium supplementation (not for therapeutic effect) is approximately 6-8 mg/kg (3-4 mg per pound) of body weight per day. That translates into a total dietary magnesium intake of 600 to 900 mg per day for a 200-lb man which is already way above the RDA, about double. With children some researchers indicate that 10 mg/kg/day are appropriate because of their low body weight and increased requirements for growth. Athletes also need more depending on their stress and training levels and we can always adjust upwards when under great emotional stress or when seriously ill.

Our cells are best served when they are brimming with magnesium reserves.

In general, for a large adult, spraying one ounce of Magnesium Oil a day all over the body is recommended for six months to recover cellular levels with that adjusted downward for children depending on their age and size. This coupled with oral intake, especially for adults, is necessary to get the maximum kick out of magnesium. When magnesium levels are at extremely low levels intravenous application is an option and is often necessary in emergency situations. See Magnesium – The Ultimate Heart Medicine for more information on this. Very strong therapeutic magnesium baths yield another level of effect which competes quite handedly with intravenous applications but they are not a substitute for them in emergency situations.

Strong therapeutic foot soaks are another option and are especially important for diabetics who suffer from diabetic neuropathy. Soak the whole body or just the feet in bath water for 20-30 minutes, at a temperature of about 108 degrees The most effective protocol for this therapy is to begin with a daily body or foot bath every day for the first 7 days, (starting at lighter concentrations and building up) then continue with a maintenance program of 2-3 times a week for 6-8 weeks or longer. Sensitive care must be taken especially with children as to dose levels, water temperature and magnesium concentrations. Muscle spasms might occur on rare occasions if one forgets to get out of the tub so it is necessary to supervise children and the length of time they remain soaking in magnesium chloride. All strong reactions like redness in local areas to diarrhea or even muscle spasms are indications to reduce concentration.

[i] German research have shown Dead Sea salts have ultimately been the reason for reduced amounts of LangerhansA cells in the epidermis, and conversely salts of sodium chloride were void of any effect at all. (al G. S., 1990 December). Magnesium chloride is also discussed when the topic of dermatitis comes into play as an excellent treatment protocol. The anti-inflammatory result of utilizing hypertonic Dead Sea solution on atopic dermatitis by means of magnesium ions is well known. (al., 2002) Further studies also revealed that the magnesium solution greatly reduced inflammation in allergic contact dermatitis. The study involved five patients with an identified nickel allergy, where magnesium chloride (not sodium chloride) stifled nickel-sulfate induced contact dermatitis. (Greiner J, 1990 November)

[ii] Diffusion is the mechanism by which components of a mixture are transported around the mixture by means of random molecular (Brownian) motion (cf. permeation: the ability of a diffusant to pass through a body – dependent on both the diffusion coefficient, D, and the solubility coefficient, S, ie, permeability coefficient, P = D.S). Flynn et al. cite Berthalot as postulating, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, that the flow of mass by diffusion (ie, the flux), across a plane, was proportional to the concentration gradient of the diffusant across that plane. http://www.initium.demon.co.uk/fick.htm

[iii] Dr. Raul Vergin offered the following guidelines for oral intake of a 2.5% Magnesium Chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2-6H2O) solution (i.e.: 25 grams or approximately one ounce of pure food grade powder in a liter of water). The quantity of elemental magnesium contained in a 125 cc dose of the 2.5% solution is around 500 mg.

Dosages are as follows:

Adults and children over 5 years old 125 cc

4 year old children 100 cc

3 year old children 80 cc

1-2 year old children 60 cc

Over 6 months old children 30 cc

Under 6 months old children 15 cc

125 milliliter = 4.2267528 ounce [US, liquid]

cc and ml are equivalent

Dr. Vergin indicates that “In acute diseases the dose is administered every 6 hours (every 3 hours the first two doses if the case is serious); then space every 8 hours and then 12 hours as improvement goes on. After recovery it’s better going on with a dose every 12 hours for some days. As a preventive measure, and as a magnesium supplement, one or two doses a day can be taken indefinitely. Magnesium Chloride, even if it’s an inorganic salt, is very well absorbed and it’s a very good supplemental magnesium source.”

[iv] Magnesium chloride is an ionic compound because it has a metal, magnesium, and a nonmetal, chlorine. Magnesium will lose two electrons and form a +2 charge. Chlorine will gain one electron to form a chloride ion with a -1 charge. The formula for the compound is MgCl2. To get the formula weight, find the atomic weights and add them together taking the subscripts into account. Magnesium is 24.3; chlorine is 35.5; so two would be 71.0. The total gives 95.3 as the formula weight.

[v] Magnesium Oil from the sea weighs 12 pounds per gallon. Distilled water weighs only 8 pounds. Thus we can calculate in a straight away manner how much elemental magnesium is in each gallon.

[vi] “I was saturated at about 3 grams of elemental Mg per day, but went to 20 grams for over a year. I now take 5 grams, and stools are semi-formed, and the surrounding water is clear, 3-4 per day.” “Mg is very safe, since the gut absorption is regulated by serum Mg levels, and then the Mg stays in the gut and results in varying degrees of diarrhea. Then the dose is too high. Want soft semi-formed stools. Mine, while on high dosages of magnesium were liquid every 2-4 hours for 2 years, the electrolytes every month were normal, but for low potassium, part of my urinary Mg wasting, both,” wrote Mansmann.

Dr. Mansmann concludes, “I have had diabetic neuropathy for over 10 years. The most significant symptom is my neuropathic pain of burning feet, called erythromelalgia. With the aid of Mg I can completely suppress the symptom, but if my blood glucose level is acutely elevated, because of a dietary indiscretion, the pain flares in spite of an apparent adequate dose of Mg. It goes away with extra Mg gluconate (Magonate) in an hour or so in either case. Without the Mg it will last for six plus hours, even though the blood glucose level is normal in about two hours.” “It is my belief that every one with diabetes should be taking Mg supplementation to the point of one’s Maximum Tolerated Dose, which is until one has soft-semi, formed stools. In addition, anyone with neuropathy, without a known cause, must be adequately evaluated for diabetes and especially those with poorly, slowly, healing foot sores of any kind. Since the use of Mg is safe I see no reason that this should not be “the standard of care”.

Benefits of Black Seed

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial.  While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.

Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years  ago

[i]  In Arabic cultures, black cumin is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is “a remedy for all diseases except death.”

egyptian tomb - benefits of black seed

 

Many of black cumin’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 656 published,  peer-reviewed studies referencing it.

We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:

  • Analgesic (Pain-Killing)
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-Ulcer
  • Anti-Cholinergic
  • Anti-Fungal
  • Ant-Hypertensive
  • Antioxidant
  • Antispasmodic
  • Antiviral
  • Bronchodilator
  • Gluconeogenesis Inhibitor (Anti-Diabetic)
  • Hepatoprotective (Liver Protecting)
  • Hypotensive
  • Insulin Sensitizing
  • Interferon Inducer
  • Leukotriene Antagonist
  • Renoprotective (Kidney Protecting)
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor

 

These 30 pharmacological actions are only a subset of a far wider number of beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed. While it is remarkable that this seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines.

Natural RX: Greenmedinfo

 

Our project has identified over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits, and we are only in our first 5 years of casual indexing. There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).

Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Research page, which includes an explorative video on turmeric. Professional database members are further empowered to manipulate the results according to their search criteria, i.e. pull up and print to PDF the 61 studies on turmeric and breast cancer.  This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.

Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:

  • Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]
  • Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds possess clinically useful anti-H. pylori activity, comparable to triple eradication therapy.[iii]
  • Epilepsy: Black seeds were traditionally known to have anticonvulsive properties. A 2007 study with epileptic children, whose condition was refractory to conventional drug treatment, found that a water extract significantly reduced seizure activity.[iv]
  • High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.[v]
  • Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa (black cumin), is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent anti-asthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.[vii]
  • Acute tonsillopharyngitis: characterized by tonsil or pharyngeal inflammation (i.e. sore throat), mostly viral in origin, black seed capsules (in combination with Phyllanthus niruri) have been found to significantly alleviate throat pain, and reduce the need for pain-killers, in human subjects.[viii]
  • Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.[ix]
  • Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]
  • MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]
  • Opiate Addiction/Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.[xiii]

Sometimes the biblical reference to ‘faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains’ comes to mind in connection with natural substances like black seeds. After all, do seeds not contain within them the very hope for continuance of the entire species that bore it?  This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power.

If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.

black seeds

Moving the mountain of inertia and falsity associated with the conventional concept of disease, is a task well-suited for seeds and not chemicals. The greatest difference, of course, between a seed and a patented synthetic chemical (i.e. pharmaceutical drug), is that Nature (God) made the former, and men with profit-motives and a deranged understanding of the nature of the body made the latter.

The time, no doubt, has come for food, seeds, herbs, plants, sunlight, air, clean water, and yes, love, to assume once again their central place in medicine, which is to say, the art and science of facilitating self-healing within the human body. Failing this, the conventional medical system will crumble under the growing weight of its own corruption, ineptitude, and iatrogenic suffering (and subsequent financial liability) it causes. To the degree that it reforms itself, utilizing non-patented and non-patentable natural compounds with actual healing properties, a brighter future awaits on the horizon. To the degree that it fails, folks will learn to take back control over their health themselves, which is why black seed, and other food-medicines, hold the key to self-empowerment.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a type of staph bacteria that’s become

resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat ordinary staph infections.

Most MRSA infections occur in people who’ve been in hospitals or other health care settings, such as nursing homes and dialysis centers.

When it occurs in these settings, it’s known as health care-associated MRSA (HA-MRSA). HA-MRSA infections typically

are associated with invasive procedures or devices, such as surgeries, intravenous tubing or artificial joints.

 Another type of MRSA infection has occurred in the wider community — among healthy people.

This form, community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often begins as a painful skin boil.

It’s spread by skin-to-skin contact. At-risk populations include groups such as high school wrestlers, child care workers and people who live in crowded conditions.

Knowing that hospital-acquired MRSA infections kill between 15,000 and 19,000 patients a year, wouldn’t you feel safer going into a hospital that uses wall and ceiling panels coated with MRSA-killing antimicrobial silver nanoparticles?

I know I would. After all, it’s well-known that the deadly MRSA pathogen colonizes hospital walls, ceilings and other surfaces, and can easily infect patients with open wounds.

In fact, I’ve argued for years now that hospitals need to start employing antimicrobial silver far more liberally than they have been. Perhaps now, with this new innovation from Germany, they’ll finally begin to do so. Here’s the story…

Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…

According to the June 2015 issue of Silver News, a German company called Lamilux has invented wall panels coated with silver nanoparticles.

The fiber-reinforced plastic wall panels can easily be installed on the walls of hospital operating rooms, similar to the way tiles are laid on a floor.

The goal is to help prevent MRSA growth and other forms of bacterial contamination, which are common in operating rooms and which infect up to 94,000 hospital patients every year. News sources claim approximately 20% of the MRSA infections that go blood-borne result in the deaths of the patients, meaning these new panels have the potential to help stop approximately 18,000 hospital-caused deaths every year.

Clinical Trials in Germany

According to the Silver News, the new panels (i.e., wall tiles) are now undergoing clinical trials in Germany to see how effective they are. They wrote:

“Lamilux Composites GmbH of Rehau, Germany, is offering a fiber-reinforced plastic material with a nanosilver coating that company officials say mitigates germs within a few hours.

Initially developed as a wall coating for hospital operating rooms, the company’s AntiBac product was developed with Rent-a-Scientist, a Regensburg-based company that specializes in nanosilver research.

With the rise of multi-resistant germs in hospitals, sometimes lethal to patients, Lamilux officials note that one in particular — methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA — appears regularly in operating rooms and can cause wound infections and respiratory inflammation that can lead to death. MRSA is resistant to many drugs.

In addition to clinical use, AntiBac can be used in the food industry in refrigerated warehouses, cold stores and refrigerated vehicles as well as in processing areas and slaughter houses, according to company officials.

The new composite is being tested at the Asklepios Clinic in Bad Abbach, Germany, where some parts of operating room walls have been covered with the anti-bacterial panels.”

The Lamilux company website claims the silver-coated panels represent, “…a new technologically-advanced composite material: a fibre-reinforced plastic, on the surface of which a nanosilver coating gives it an antibacterial effect and kills germs within just a few hours.”

Lamilux goes on to explain the reason for the development of the new silver-coated panels:

“Multi-resistant germs pose a major threat in hospitals and could be fatal for patients.

Clinics therefore permanently face the challenge of preventing the occurrence of dangerous hospital germs with targeted preventive and emergency hygiene measures.

…The new antibacterial LAMILUX material can in the future be used as wall and ceiling panels…it has been scientifically proven that dangerous germs die within a few hours.

In addition to clinical use, there are also numerous areas of application for the high-tech material, mainly in the food industry, where high hygiene standards need to be maintained and sterility is paramount.

…The material is being trialed in practice at the Asklepios Clinic in Bad Abbach, Germany. In some parts of the operating room, the walls have been covered with the anti-infective panels.”

Of course, this is not the first time antimicrobial silver has been employed to help staunch the epidemic of hospital-acquired MRSA infections.

According to the Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA website, “…hospitals in Britain have been testing pajamas and bed linen made of a special fabric that is impregnated with silver, as a means of stopping the spread of MRSA dead in its tracks…Over the course of the next year, the specially created fabrics are being used at the Lister Hospital in the city of Stevenage, in Hertfordshire, England.”

Says Dr. Peter Wilson, a consulting microbiologist for the above hospital, “A successful trial would transform the way we tackle certain infections, particularly MRSA…Silver is known to be a very efficient agent against infection and also very safe. These trials will mean we can prove its effectiveness.”

The Colloidal Silver Cures MRSA website also points out that according to the British newspaper, The Sun, “…a $250,000 machine has been developed to spray a special aerosol silver mist throughout British hospitals, in order to stop the spread of the deadly MRSA super pathogens.”

 

 

The Sun newspaper went on to state:

“Experts have long known silver is deadly to the superbug and is highly toxic to some other bacteria as well.

It is already used in plasters and hospital dressings. But now medics from Leicester University have created a generator that divides pieces of silver into billions of tiny particles.

It then suspends them in liquid glycerol to be put into aerosols. The particles are small enough to pass inside bacteria but do not kill human cells.

 

 

The $250,000 machine’s inventor, Professor Chris Binns, said medical trials will start within the year. He also believes the silver ‘bullets’ produced by his machine could be used to fight HIV.”

Of course, experienced colloidal silver users have known for years that safe, simple colloidal silver – which can be purchased in just about any well-stocked health food store, or even made at home with a colloidal silver generator — not only kills the MRSA pathogen, but can be used to help heal just about any bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

When your doctor says there’s no hope …..

Exceptional Teaching Tool for Health Practitioners and Laypeople Looking to Learn About Integrative Medicine

 
July 24, 2016 | 12,389 views
By Dr. Mercola
 
“We have thousands of tools,” Cowden says. “We could be here for days talking about all of them. The allopathic system unfortunately only has about three or four tools in their toolbox. When you get to the end of those few tools, the allopathic doctor says, ‘There is no more hope for your condition. Go home and suffer and die.’ 

 

Most of us will, at some point, go through personal health challenges, and it would be wise to have a personal physician you can trust who is grounded in natural medicine. Dr. Lee Cowden, who is my personal physician, has developed an excellent teaching program for licensed health professionals and laypeople alike.

Cowden is a board-certified interventional cardiologist who, after experiencing the limitations of the conventional model firsthand as a patient, came to realize there’s another approach.

“I was accepted to medical school in Houston … With all the grass, weeds, molds, fungus, pollens and everything in the air, I developed allergic rhinitis, then I developed allergic sinusitis, then infective sinusitis, [followed by] bronchitis and finally pneumonia.

I went to the chairman of different medical school departments to get help and I followed their instructions explicitly, and I got progressively worse. Thank goodness, my wife’s grandmother came to visit us in Houston. She saw me suffering and took pity on me.

She was a school teacher and a self-taught nutritionist. She took me to the health food store and got me some vitamins, minerals and herbs, and I got well.

I thought, ‘I need to learn what this woman knows and I need to take with a grain of salt everything I learned in the conventional allopathic training system after this.'”

The Importance of Addressing Your Emotions

Quite often, emotional wounding is part of the disease spectrum. Cowden suggests it may be a contributing factor in nearly all disease, to some degree. In some patients, it may be 90 percent causative. In others, it may only contribute 10 or 20 percent. However, avoiding addressing any potential emotional issues will oftentimes stifle the healing process and/or prevent complete healing.

Michelle LaMasa-Schrader, Ph.D., who teaches one of ACIM’s fellowship training courses on emotional healing, will also be speaking at this year’s conference. She teaches Recall Healing, which involves asking the patient the right questions, the right way, so the patient has an “aha moment.” When they have the “aha moment,” the condition the question addresses often resolves spontaneously without any other therapy.

Dr. [Ryke] Geerd Hamer in Germany was the one who started this back in 1978,” Cowden says. “Many others have added on to the methodology system. It’s quite an extraordinary process. I learned the process originally from Gilbert Renaud [Ph.D.,] in Vancouver B.C., Canada. He now travels in Europe and Russia, and teaches at the University of Moscow. Recall Healing is now a required course for the psychology students at the university.”

Other tools include EVOX therapy, which involves speaking into a microphone that records the frequencies embedded in your voice. Each frequency in your voice corresponds to a specific emotion attached to the person or event you’re speaking about. In 15 seconds, all the specific emotions surrounding the issue talked about are displayed on a computer screen. The device then takes these voice frequencies and makes them into a homeopathic energy that it delivers back into you.

“It shakes those memories loose, so the patient becomes free from them,” Cowden explains. I realize this may sound like hocus pocus, science fiction or both, but I’ve experienced a few EVOX therapy sessions and can attest to its effectiveness. The Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is another tool that can be quite useful, and there are many others. New techniques are also cropping up at a fairly rapid clip.

“They say allopathic medical knowledge is doubling every three to four years; integrative medicine knowledge is doubling every two years. Unless you’re continually learning, you’re going to fall behind and something that’s valuable will not be used,” Cowden says.

From Crisis Intervention to Preventive Medicine

That was 1975. It took another decade before he decided to “come out of the closet,” as he puts it, and begin to incorporate the alternative methods he’d learned into his own medical practice.

By that time, he’d finished his cardiology and critical care medicine fellowships, and had practiced interventional cardiology and invasive medicine for a year.

“At the end of that year, I concluded three things: if I continued on that grueling path, I would kill myself and probably end up in divorce and wouldn’t know my children,” he says.

“The other thing I realized was that patients got well and got out of the hospital when they weren’t expected to because of the nutritional things I used while they were in the hospital.

But they were all coming back to the hospital two to three months later with the same condition, because they didn’t change their lifestyle.

They didn’t change their diet. They hadn’t done anything else. I realized at that point I was intervening way too far down the stream. I needed to get out of that crisis intervention mode.

I [started] thinking of getting into a more preventative medicine mode and start reversing diseases by identifying the causes and helping the patients to reverse those causes.”

Cowden now travels and teaches doctors about various preventive and integrative care strategies, including diet, detoxification, electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and much more.

I believe the model Cowden has developed, integrating many different modalities into a very comprehensive and integrative approach, is one of the best available for physicians who seek to learn and integrate this into their practice.

The Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine

Cowden’s intention and goal is to create a large number of physicians and healthcare clinicians who understand integrative or alternative medicine principles and are able to apply them.

He’s developed a course to train clinicians that seems to be, from everything I’ve reviewed, the most cost-effective strategy available.

“The academy I work with, the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine (ACIM), is a Panamanian-based academy (because they still have freedom of speech) that has been at this since late 2008.

We’ve been filming valuable information, editing it and uploading it to the academy website. So there’s a lot of information on the academy website, ACIMConnect.com.”

ACIM connects practitioners to other practitioners through a mentoring process. It also connects practitioners with patients that want to seek their help, and connects patients with patients who need support and encouragement during their healing process.

The cost for this program is about one-quarter of the typical cost for similar programs, and by providing online training, you also save a lot of money by eliminating the need for travel and hotel stays.

Periodically, you may be required to go to a fixed location for hands-on instruction, but 80 to 90 percent of what you need to learn is done online at your own convenience.

Moreover, you do not have to be a licensed medical professional to participate. Even laypeople and patients can enroll in the program. If you complete the entire program, you will be certified as a comprehensive wellness coach who can work closely with a licensed practitioner. The two available paths in the academy are:

  1. The informal path: as a member (free membership is also available), you can look through the catalog and select the education courses that interest you. All courses are available as online videos.
  2. The formal path: practitioners who want to go to the next step can enter into the ACIM’s integrative medicine fellowship program, which includes 300 hours’ worth of integrative medicine educational training, much of which can be done online. There are also different levels within the fellowship program, from low to high.

Mark Your Calendar for ACIM’s Annual Conference

ACIM holds an annual conference in Florida. This year, I will be speaking at this event, which will be held in Orlando from September 22 through September 24.

There’s also a post-conference on September 25, which will include the major laboratories that test blood or use other non-scanning techniques to find out whether a person has cancer and to what extent.

For example, by measuring Nagalase and ENOX2, Cowden says you can receive a “fairly certain” diagnosis of whether you have cancer, all in a matter of 48 hours.

It promises to be one of the best events of the year and I am very excited to be sharing my latest insights on the metabolic treatment of cancer. Many of the leading experts in the field will also be there, including Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D. author of the book “Cancer as a Metabolic Disease.”

If you have an interest in cancer, this is the go-to event of the year to get the latest insights on how to conquer cancer through diet and other means. You can get the details at this link.

“This topic of diet and cancer is absolutely crucial. Without [addressing your diet], most patients have very little hope of recovery, whether they go the allopathic route or the integrative medicine route,” Cowden says.

“We have Dr. Tsuneo Kobayashi coming from Japan. Twenty years ago, he started doing research for finding a blood chemistry panel that could determine whether a person was starting to develop cancer. If he found they were starting to develop cancer, he would intervene with natural means and turn that around, so that the cancer markers became normal again.

During that time, there should have been 300 full-blown cases of cancer in his group of patients, but there’s not been one. He’s going to tell us how he did all that. That’s going to be a fascinating presentation.

Dr. [Ioannis] Papasotiriou is coming to us from Greece. He’s developed a lab that’s just mind-boggling … He can actually make a remedy that can be used to treat a patient from the patient’s own blood. We have Dr. William LaValley … who has researched the literature, finding all the articles in the peer-reviewed literature showing how nutraceuticals effectively reverse cancer … “

Novel Tool to Improve Your Sleep Quality

While conventional medicine has only a limited number of tools at its disposal, there’s really no shortage of them in the integrative model. I’ve had some experience with a few that are really incredible. One tool I’m currently using is a fitness ring that assesses sleep quality, which is an important part of the health equation.

The ring essentially works like a mini sleep lab. It will tell you how long you were in light sleep, deep sleep and REM sleep, your heart rate variability, what time you wake up and your total sleep time.

“We have thousands of tools,” Cowden says. “We could be here for days talking about all of them. The allopathic system unfortunately only has about three or four tools in their toolbox. When you get to the end of those few tools, the allopathic doctor says, ‘There is no more hope for your condition. Go home and suffer and die.’ 

That’s when you need to start looking in the integrative medicine realm. Years ago, somebody asked me, ‘What business are you in?’ I said, ‘I’m in the failure business. I treat the failures of the allopathic medical community.’ The human body has been created to regenerate as long as the allopathic doctors don’t get too much in the way. The pharmaceuticals block the healing process. The surgery removes body parts that you might have needed …

Anyway, the EEG Biofeedback is an extremely valuable tool in the integrative medicine toolbox … We measure the brain waves coming off the different parts of the brain, [which] tells us with great predictive accuracy what that person’s sleep is like, what their mood is like, what their memory is like, what their ability to do a mathematical calculation is like, whether they have anxiety … It’s amazing what we can learn.”

Herbal Medicine

Cowden uses products from a Florida-based herbal company called NutraMedix. Many of its products are potent mitochondrial regulators. Cowden estimates most all people have disease-causing microbes in their bodies. As long as your immune system is strong, they’re kept in check. But if your immune function falters, they can easily take over, and many pathogenic microorganisms produce biotoxins that are more toxic than man-made ones.

“Those add on to the pile that’s already in your body from the pesticides, the herbicides, the heavy metals and the radioactive elements we’re all getting exposed to every day just by living and breathing,” Cowden says. “You can become very ill [from] the combination of the bugs and the toxins. When we use these herbals, we’re shifting that balance. They’re very diverse in their effect.”

What’s unique about the NutraMedix products is that most of them are quantum physically imprinted. They’re high-quality herbal extracts from naturally raised plants in the jungle. They also act like homeopathics, because they can deal with a lot of things that the herbs themselves cannot address.

I’ve tried about a dozen different preparations from NutraMedix and have experienced profound benefits from them. Ideally, they’d be prescribed by someone who has the training and knowledge to select the most appropriate remedy, but they’re quite safe either way, so there’s no major downside to taking them.

“No. They’ve studied these at the University of Guayaquil in Ecuador in animals and given hundreds of times the human recommended dose, scaled down to animal bodyweight, for weeks on end without seeing any change in the behavior of the animals or any change in the histology of the organs … We know that these are extremely safe. In some cases, safer than water,” Cowden says.

Herbal Remedies for Lyme Disease

People with Lyme disease, for example, may benefit from these kinds of herbal formulas. Cowden has created a specific treatment program for Lyme patients who have failed to improve on antibiotic therapy. In initial tests, the improvement rate was around 80 percent.

Bionatus, located in Ecuador, has an educational website, NutraMedix.ec, where you can learn more about this all-natural treatment program. The 11 herbs used in this program include Cumanda, Banderol and Samento.

Takuna is also an excellent product to help with seasonal health challenges. I recommend keeping Takuna in your home emergency medical kit.

“It’s a comprehensive program. You don’t really have to know what kind of creature you have in your body. It will address the vast majority of the creatures that are there,” Cowden says.

Integrative Medicine Can Help Just About Any Condition

According to doctors who have used the Cowden Support Program in their chronically-ill patients, this program has often produced “amazing results.” Other procedures developed by innovative integrative practitioners can also have amazing results in certain chronically-ill patients.

“We know you can reverse chronic diarrhea caused by Clostridium dificil and even ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease oftentimes with one procedure called human fecal transplant. We’re talking about permanent resolution. This treatment came out of Australia but it’s actually been studied at the Mayo Clinic and proven to be effective. Why are we still giving all the drugs for these conditions when we can effectively treat them and often cure them with one integrative treatment?” he says.

The Importance of Addressing Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities underlie many chronic health problems, and there are electronic tools that can comprehensively screen for hundreds, if not thousands, of different foods, giving you a list of foods you’re sensitive to within a matter of 15 minutes. Cowden recommends using electrodermal screening or galvanic skin response testing. By eliminating sensitizing foods, you may experience a significant improvement in your condition.

“When you’re dealing with an immune-related problem like cancer, for example, if you’re consuming a lot of food allergens every day, a lot of the immune energy is going to deal with that food allergy reaction rather than the immunity that’s taking care of the cancer. You’re cheating yourself out of combating the cancer when you have those unnecessary food allergy reactions,” Cowden says.

“In this type of medicine, we also teach practitioners how to do the Coca Pulse test, so that they can teach their patients how to do that at home. It’s a very simple process. Just take your pulse before the meal. Relax for a few minutes. Eat your meal without distress. No arguments at the table. No watching the news.

About 10 minutes after the meal, take your pulse again. If your pulse rate goes up, you know you’ve had an allergy reaction to that meal. We don’t have to know what type of allergy reaction; we just know there’s a problem in that meal. If they make an entire meal out of each one of those component foods over the next three days, they could figure out which ones [are problematic].”

Most heart rate variability tools come from Russia, where they’ve studied and perfected this technique over the last 45 years. Cowden likes a heart rate variability system called Heart Quest, which tells you not only what your autonomic nervous system is doing, but also what’s going on with your hormonal, psycho-emotional and cardiovascular systems.

From this, you can assess your brain’s toxic load and potential mineral or hormone deficiencies, for example. You can also assess the balance of your meridian system, used in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and the Ayurvedic system.

Remarkable Success Stories

Some of the more remarkable success stories using integrative medicine involve prospective transplant patients. Many have actually been on the roster list for an organ transplant, and implementing Cowden’s protocols made them well enough to not need that transplant. To me, that’s quite profound.

“I had a young fellow come to me from Israel years ago with kidney failure. He was on the verge of dialysis. He already had one kidney transplant and he was rejecting that kidney. In just a month’s time — with dietary changes, nutritional supplementation, some emotional work [and] some electromagnetic therapies — he went to perfectly normal kidney function …

The liver is one of the most regenerative organs in the body. For somebody to get a liver transplant is absolutely crazy, because all you have to do is get rid of the toxins in the liver … You can get the toxins out and stop putting more toxins in. Give the body just a few nutrients to help rebuild the liver back up, and it regenerates in every case,” Cowden says.

That may sound like a bold statement, but this is coming from a clinician who’s treated patients for 30 years and has seen these kinds of cases day in and day out.

More Information

The take-home message here is that, no matter what health issue you’re trying to address, there is likely a wide array of tools and treatment strategies that can help. My goal is to catalyze the transformation of the healing system in the world. I can provide information on this website, but ultimately we need clinicians trained in these alternative and integrative methods, so that patients can get expert guidance.

The ACIM program is, in my view, the best training tool out there for health practitioners and laypeople alike. Especially if you’re a practicing clinician, I couldn’t encourage you more strongly to participate. You can get more information and enroll on ACIMConnect.com.

“I think each listener, no matter what their background, can go to the academy website and learn things that will be valuable for their own health, the health of their family members and close friends. If they choose to, they can even apply that to others. They can do that, if they’re not a practitioner, as a wellness coach.

We want to try to hook up wellness coaches with well-trained integrative practitioners, so they can work together. Integrative practitioners need the help of the wellness coach to handle the patients … Creating that team is the best scenario for the practitioner, the wellness coach and the patient,” Cowden says.

The program also teaches you how to legally practice as a wellness coach, so you don’t run the risk of going to jail for practicing medicine without a license. That’s a big part of the equation. It’s important to have the appropriate legal structure in place. Cowden is also working on a tertiary care system, where severely ill patients can have access to guidance and care for days or weeks at a time.

“Some people might have far advanced cancer. They might have to spend a few weeks in a tertiary care location to get the integrative care they need. Then once they are improved significantly, they go back into the setting around their home where there’s a wellness coach or an integrative practitioner that can do the follow through and keep them moving in the right direction.

You need to have that balance of ‘the best of the best’ on call all the time, if you need him, but also the person that’s going to be close to you, the primary care practitioner [and] the wellness coach that’s going to do the follow-through.”

Attend the ACIM Conquering Cancer Conference

If you have an interest in or passion for learning more about cancer, be sure to attend the ACIM Conquering Cancer Conference in Orlando, September 22 through September 24. Cowden and I will both be there, along with a long list of other excellent speakers, including my mentor in nutrition, Dr. Ron Rosedale. You’ll learn how to implement a ketogenic diet, for example, and much more.

Perhaps more importantly, get your clinician to participate in the ACIM Connect training program, so they can get certified and become aware of all these great tools. A practitioner can begin the fellowship program with just 30 hours of training, which is one level.

Strange Bacteria on the move and a solution thereto

STRANGE BACTERIA CAUSE DISEASE

 

Strange Bacteria Causes Disease

 

May 4, 2016

Medical science has told us, for at least the last 75 years, that if we have a certain set of symptoms, we are afflicted with a distinct brand of dis – ease. What they haven’t bothered to tell us is that a certain snake like bacteria can cause over 300 different sets of symptoms depending on the location of the weak spots in each person’s body. These are intelligent little critters that can tour our bodies and settle in those weak spots.

This particular bacteria is very contagious and can be transmuted by a sneeze, a kiss or a mosquito bite. What that leads to is a whole family can be infested with these tiny snakes and each one has a different set of symptoms, and are thus each diagnosed with a different major disease. You can see where this would lead.

snake like bacteria intelligent little critters

Each one is prescribed a different set of medications which somewhat suppress the symptoms, but do nothing to eradicate the cause. It’s called Dis – ease management. It’s sort of like farming with a crop that grows every year without replanting. It simply has to be managed and you have a perpetual cash cow. It’s like anything else in life. Once you understand that this bacteria could be causing your disease, you can take intelligent steps to eradicate them. A way to eradicate these tiny snakes has been found several times. Will the medical mainstream tell us about it? Of course not because that would put a stop to a multi-billion dollar medical scam that very few of your personal doctors are even aware of.

Dis-ease management does nothing but make tons of money for the managers, big Pharma. You still have the same problem which gradually gets worse, plus you end up with debilitating side effects from the prescriptions you’re taking. Of course you personally can put a stop to it. You will first have to divorce your doctor along with the medical religion you’ve been programmed with. Now I don’t mean drop everything you’re currently doing cold turkey. Perhaps on a daily basis you could also slowly start using this inexpensive chemical that’s been proven by thousands of people to kill those little snaky bacteria and see if you don’t slowly start to feel better over time. Of course your doctor wouldn’t approve because he’s been taught to only push expensive mainstream chemicals.

The bacteria killing chemical

I’m talking about has been approved by the FDA to clean all your meats and vegetables so we don’t all get sick from our everyday food. Naturally there are hundreds of different kinds of pathogens on those commercially raised food products and this inexpensive chemical has been proven to kill them all. This chemical does not even have to be washed off and was even used after hurricane Katrina to clean all the mold fungus and bacteria from those flood soaked buildings and homes. Of course it’s not been mentioned by the mainstream that it can be used in very small consistent doses to clean our bodies internally.

This simple chemical discovered in the 1800s in Russia has been used to purify water supplies by towns all over the world where the officials were aware of the side effects of the most common’s water purifiers, and chose to use this product because it has no known side effects. For use in purifying your body only a few drops [ 1 to 3 usually] are put in a glass of water. There is a very simple way to do this that you can learn in moments, to get the benefits we’re describing.

You’ve probably had your body condition for quite some time so don’t expect it to clear up instantly. You should plan on using the purifier for several months and if you get quicker relief than that, simply thank God, and pray for a long happy life.

Chlorine Dioxide

The chemical you’re going to use is called chlorine dioxide. This form of chlorine causes no side effects, because its side effect causing components are all used up by the time it gets to the dioxide form. It must be made just before use as it usually has a one hour shelf-life. You simply put a drop each of two different long shelf- life chemicals together in a dry glass wait 20 seconds, and just that quick you have your pathogen killer. Fill your glass with water and you’re ready to start taking charge of your own health.

The longer you’ve had your illness the fewer drops you use at a time because it’s very efficient at killing off pathogens. If you start with several drops you may kill off way more bugs than your elimination system can easily get rid of, so you may get the runs, nausea etc. You can even start with a half drop or less and add more next time if you feel okay. Believe it or not you can be a better judge of what your body needs than anyone else outside your body can ever know, regardless of how many years training they have. I know we’ve been taught to let other so-called experts do our thinking for us but ultimately it is up to us whether we retrieve a healthy body, or let it die and have to leave it.

 

 

The two chemicals are number one, a sodium chlorite solution [this is not sodium chloride- table salt] and number two a 50% citric acid solution [the same acid found in lemons]. When a drop of each is put together they’re both canceled out and a new chemical “chlorine dioxide” is formed in about 20 seconds. After it is formed at least one half glass of water is added and it is ready to kill pathogens. So simple, so cheap, you don’t even need insurance. It costs about $25 for a six months to one year supply. You see, that’s the number one problem the mainstream has with it, there’s no money in it, so the mainstream is never going to adopt it. In fact the mainstream hires people to badmouth it and talk about its danger even though the food and water quality people have proved this is non-toxic and have used it for about 100 years.

Personally, I got rid of fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis with chlorine dioxide, so I like it a lot. I can’t recommend anyone use this water purifying product like I did, because I’m not a doctor. Therefore I am not qualified to make any recommendations and of course I’m certainly not approved by the FDA.
