Four Triggers of IBS And a Solution!

What's on your mind? Perhaps a better question might be, what's up with your stomach? Because if you're one of the estimated 45 million Americans who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), you know something all too well: IBS feels awful.

Do you suffer from IBS?

IBS is more than just an inconvenience. For many, it's a detriment to their way of life. The average IBS patient is a woman, between 30 and 60. She's almost 35% less productive than her non-IBS stricken co-workers. And she pays upwards of $4,500 in out-of-pocket medical expenses each year. Ouch.

The cause of all this grief? There are several, actually. And fortunately, there is a solution.

Common IBS Triggers 

IBS is a highly unique disorder. What sets off irritable bowel syndrome in one patient may leave another unscathed. Having said that, some causes of IBS are more common than others. And if there's anything that can make your insides feel like they're being whipped up by an egg-beater, it would be these folks:
  • Lack of Hydrochloric Acid - Your digestive system is a delicate creature that requires an optimum balance of hydrochloric (stomach) acid and digestive enzymes. Without sufficient stomach acid, many IBS patients experience poor nutrient absorption, develop bacterial and protozoal infections and allergic reactions to partially digested food.
  • Inflammation of the Gastrointestinal System - Another common IBS trigger, inflammation of the GI tract begins an ugly cycle of food allergies, fatigue, toxic substances leaking into the bloodstream and, notably, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Gotta love those.
  • Stress - Studies suggest that up to 60% of IBS patients have a psychological disorder - often anxiety. And more proof that problems of the gut are linked to the brain: 95 per cent of the body's serotonin receptors are located in, you guessed it, the gut.
  • Bad Bacteria - Your gut is home to naturally occurring bacteria. Some, like probiotics, are beneficial. Yet, when dangerous bacteria take over, bad things happen, including IBS. Down the road, dangerous bacteria can cause weight gain, chronic pain and perhaps even cancer.

Relief Starts Here

Digestive Science IBS Relief System is a natural, three-step therapy for your body and quality of life. For relief from pain and to treat these common triggers of IBS, start here.

Unlike traditional IBS medicines, including antacids and proton pump inhibitors, IBS Relief System is a gentle, comprehensive process that goes beyond symptom reduction. And unlike such IBS medicines, it's safe for long-term use.

For example, note the ColoBalance IBS Support supplement. This is a natural formulation of minerals, herbals, fibers and enzymes that provide immediate, gentle relief. Better digestion, less abdominal pain. Yes, relief is a beautiful thing.

Consider the Maximum Digestion Probiotic - ten strains of the "friendly" bacteria that eliminate harmful bacteria like salmonella and bring harmony to a raging system. If you've got IBS, you're looking for balance. With the Maximum Digestion Probiotic, you've got just that.

Think about the Daily Digestion Support fiber and nutrient supplement with the superfood "chia" If the name rings a bell, that's because chia's received extensive coverage in medical circles and on TV for its unbeatable nutritional breakdown. Chia's the kind of food that calms the most troubled of tummies. And it provides ongoing health to your digestive system, and peace to your life.

There's a pattern here. Digestive Science IBS Relief System brings natural relief to thousands of patients with this problematic condition. No drugs, no harsh laxatives. Just natural, lasting relief. And a smile to your face!

The Ancient Tibetan Garlic Cure

A few months ago a colleague of mine told me that her grandmother makes her own garlic potion to stay healthy. She marinates garlic in alcohol for up to six weeks and when the potion is ready, she drinks few drops a day for few weeks. She repeats this cure every year and never gets sick.

Organic garlic

I wondered if anyone else knew about the garlic cure and started an online search. To my surprise the search produced "Tibetan garlic cure." The post showed up on several blogs and some bloggers claimed that this ancient garlic recipe was discovered in Tibet in 1970s by an UNESCO commission. 

Unfortunately I do not have any better information and cannot verify this claim, but I know that the therapeutic properties of garlic were known in many cultures for centuries, and that many cultures use alcohol to prepare herbal liquors, tinctures and medicinal wines. The Chinese used therapeutic liquors for centuries; so did Hildegard von Bingen in Medieval Europe. Herbs, flowers, fruits, roots, and even small animals (such as snakes) or animal parts were preserved in alcohol. Alcohol potentiated the healing properties of used ingredients and allowed better preservation from spoilage. To this day Chinese pharmacies in Hong Kong and everywhere where Traditional Chinese Medicine is practiced, sell therapeutic wines. You can see a coiled snake or a ginseng root that has been preserved to extract the its highest healing potential. 

Garlic (Allium sativum) is a plant native to Central Asia. For thousands of years garlic has been used not only in cooking, but also as medicine. The Sumerians, Egyptians, Chinese, Tibetans, Indians, Ancient Greeks and Romans, all valued garlic's therapeutic qualities. They discovered garlic's potential to kill germs and used it as medicine to cure various infections, including typhus, dysentery, influenza, and cholera.

Modern research confirms what the ancients knew for ages. Garlic not only kills germs, it is also an effective herb that can be used modulate and strengthen the immune system. Scientists also found that garlic can also prevent cardiovascular disease and reduce blood pressure.

 Miron glass jar

Garlic seems to be a very healthy herb all by itself. Is it possible that preserving it in alcohol enhances its healing potential even more?

To make the garlic solution you will need about 12 ounces (350 g) garlic, 3 ounces of 96% pure, food grade alcohol, and a tight closing jar.

I decided to use a violet Miron glass jar. Miron glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part. At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products. Scientists in Germany found that Miron glass enhances the therapeutic strength of products stored in it. 

Making of the Ancient Tibetan Garlic Cure:
  • Wash and dry the jar. Set aside.
  • Peal the garlic cloves. You may want to wear rubber gloves.
  • Roughly chop the garlic cloves and transfer them into your clean jar.
  • Slowly pour the alcohol into the jar making sure that the garlic is well covered. Add more alcohol if you find it necessary. 
  • Tightly close the lid and place the jar in a cool, dark place. Allow the garlic to marinade for 10 days.
  • After 10 days carefully open the jar and strain the garlic tincture through a sieve pouring it into a clean measuring jar. 
  • Pour the clear liquid into a clean dark glass bottle and close it with a pipette stopper.  (I used Miron glass bottles)

This is how the Tibetan garlic should be made according to various websites. I changed the method a bit remembering that my colleague's grandmother kept her garlic in alcohol for at least three weeks. I allowed the tincture to mature even more when I transferred it into two small Miron glass bottles. I stored the bottles for another three weeks before I began the cure.

Miron glass bottles with garlic tincture

There is a suggested way to administer the garlic cure beginning with one drop and breakfast on the first day and increasing the amount with each meal up to 25 drops on day eleven. Continue taking 25 drops per meal until the tincture is finished. Remember to shake the bottle before each use.

I am not sure that such "schedule" is necessary, although some homeopathic or alchemistic principles might be involved here. I decided to take two drops with each meal, three times a day and I take it in a spoon of yogurt to neutralize the strong garlic odor. 

November is a perfect time to start caring for the immune system. If the cure works I should be infection free till the end of winter.

October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Like every year women around the world become a bit more aware of this deadly disease when October comes. Some might have developed the disease over the last twelve months; others may know someone who has.


The statistics are terrifying despite the growing awareness and health information available to us:
  • About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
  • In 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 57,650 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
  • About 2,140 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in men in 2011. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
  • From 1999 to 2005, breast cancer incidence rates in the U.S. decreased by about 2% per year. The decrease was seen only in women aged 50 and older. One theory is that this decrease was partially due to the reduced use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) by women after the results of a large study called the Women’s Health Initiative were published in 2002. These results suggested a connection between HRT and increased breast cancer risk.
  • About 39,520 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2011 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1990 - especially in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
  • For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
  • Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. Just under 30% of cancers in women are breast cancers.
  • White women are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than African-American women. However, in women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more llkely to die of breast cancer. Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women have a lower risk of developing and dying from breast cancer.
  • In 2011, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the US.
  • A woman’s risk of breast cancer approximately doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. About 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.
  • In men, about 1 in 10 breast cancers are believed to be due to BRCA2 mutations, and even fewer cases to BRCA1 mutations.
  • About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.  

For most people the diagnosis comes as a shock. To many it is a death sentence. And yet, breast cancer, like many other cancers, is a symptom of a life strategies gone wrong. It can be prevented! Prevention means a drastic change of lifestyle - a step that relatively few people want to take. At least not before they are diagnosed with a deadly disease. 

The importance of early detection of breast cancer cannot be stressed enough. It takes only a few minutes a day to perform self-exam

Healthy nutrition is vital in prevention of any disease. Just consider that a better health is only a meal away. It really is this simple!

Wishing everyone a magnificent time in October, in radiant health - Dominique Allmon

Hypothyroidism and Weight Gain

Do you know that frequent, consistent weight loss -in spite of doing all you can to keep the weight stable- could be as a result of hypothyroidism? Surprised; you should be. Most people do not even know what it is to have the thyroid functioning less than it should. 

 Slow thyroid?

Hypothyroidism is responsible for a varied array of symptoms: weight loss, infertility, brittle hard nails, and dry flaky skin. These symptoms alone do not certify the presence of hypothyroidism as they are also associated with other illnesses.However, some knowledge of what hypothyroidism is and how it can affect an individual’s health is in order. 

Hypothyroidism is a combination of two words: Hypo meaning under, reduced or below normal and thyroid which is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland that secretes thyroid hormones located just below the mythical “Adam’s apple” or better still in the front of the neck.  

From this explanation, it is easy to deduce that hypothyroidism means the under-functioning of the thyroid gland in the body. The hormone normally secreted by the thyroid gland is known as Thyroxine. It is also referred to as T4. This means it has four iodine molecules. The hormone is very versatile in its functions. Therefore, it is carried from the thyroid gland to various parts of the body; this includes every tissue in the body. It has the ability to ensure that the body cells tissues and organs function just right. Activities like energy generation are aided by these hormones. Also, the functions of the heart, brain, body muscles et.al are aided by thyroxine. With these, it is clear that thyroxine plays a very vital role in the overall well being of an individual including the tendency to gain weight. 

When there isn’t enough secretion of the desired hormone –thyroxine being he desired one here- the body processes are interfered with. As a result, processes like the breaking down of calories and carbs to ensure energy increase and minimize weight gain aren’t properly carried out. This is the reason people feel frequently tired when they have hypothyroidism. 

Now, with the increased incidence of tiredness, comes weight gain. This is because the individual feels too tired to even exercise This also coupled with the inability of the organs in the body to properly break down food components result in increased weight gain. So, as soon as you notice you are getting frequently tired and are gaining weight, see the doctor as soon as possible. Have an enjoyable life.

Re-Start Your Digestion With Natural Colon Cleanse

You can restart a computer. You can change the oil in your car. And you've heard the benefits of the famous colon cleanse. Are they legitimate? Yes. But not for the reasons you've heard. 


What's the interest in colon cleansing? Well, it's a chance to restart your digestion, boost your health and even improve clarity and your frame of mind. As the old wives tales say it, the feces that aren't expelled naturally build up in your colon. Then toxins from these feces enter the bloodstream and "poison" the body. You get digestion problems. You feel lethargic. You're irritable. Life sucks. That's the theory of auto-intoxification and it is not recognized by science. Yet the symptoms persist, including fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, weight gain and sluggish digestion. Look familiar? They're the symptoms once associated with auto-intoxification. They're actually caused by inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract. And they can be dangerous. 

Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse is a safe and natural way to detoxify the body and revitalize your digestive system. Yes, you can restart your body, just like you've heard. But you've got to do it within a safe system that walks you through the process and nurtures the delicate lining of the GI tract. How does it work?

First, let's clarify that the symptoms associated with auto-intoxification – bad digestion, lethargy, gas and constipation to name a few – are actually caused by inflammation of the GI tract. When that happens, cells separate within the gut and "leak" toxins into the bloodstream that would normally be blocked. Same idea as auto-intoxification, but with a different mechanism.

This process forces your liver and immune system to work overtime, so to speak, fighting these toxins. Meanwhile, you develop food sensitivities. Your liver becomes stressed and you don't absorb nutrients. You develop symptoms of bad digestion and you feel lethargic. In short, your health takes a nosedive. And the cycle repeats.

And the colon cleansers you've heard about? They're laxatives, and harsh ones at that, which blast your colon and alter the delicate balance of micro-flora within the gut. You want to revitalize your colon, not kill it. But that's what many systems do. 

We've designed Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse to do what most systems don't – that is, revitalize your colon, detoxify your body and treat bad digestion. In other words, restart your system, for your health and well-being.

In step one, we walk you through the ten day "cleanse". Remember that your colon is extremely sensitive and doesn't react well to ongoing use of laxatives. The Intensive Colon Cleanse daily supplement is specifically formulated to calm the delicate lining of the GI tract with probiotics and high-quality fibers that relieve the discomfort of bad digestion.

Step two consists of the Maximum Digestion Probiotic daily supplement. This is a strain of ten probiotic microbes – the "friendly" bacteria that restore balance in the gut and soothe symptoms of bad digestion. Good-bye gas, diarrhea and constipation.

When you've completed the ten day cleanse, we start your digestion maintenance program with the Daily Digestion Support once-a-day fiber and nutrient supplement. Formulated with a series of antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, including the super-food "chia", this further aids in reduced inflammation and promotes healthy ongoing digestive function.

Less pain and discomfort. Fewer symptoms of bad digestion. Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse is safe and effective. And that restart? You just did it, and you feel like a new person.

Health Benefits of Watermelon

Like no other fruit, watermelon is considered by many to be a perfect Summer fruit. Thanks to its high water and mineral content, water melon is a tasty thirst quencher. This quality was greatly appreciated as far back in history as Ancient Egypt and Ancient China.


Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) belongs to the family Cucurbitaceae. It is a vine-like flowering plant that most probably originated in Southern Africa. The plant produces large fruits whose flesh is pink or dark red when ripe. The fruits are covered with thick, green rind. There are more than 1200 varieties cultivated all over the world.

Watermelon is rich in nutrients:
  • vitamins, especially the vision supporting vitamin A, the immune system modulating vitamin B6 and the immune system boosting vitamin C 
  • minerals, especially magnesium and potassium
  • amino acid citruline 
  • carotenoids lycopene and beta carotene
  • flavonoids lutein, zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin
  • tripterpenoids
As mentioned before, because of its very high water content, watermelon is a wonderful thirst quencher. In Traditional Chinese Medicine the red flesh of the fruit is considered to be cooling and used to purify blood and dispel symptoms of internal and external heat. A very popular watermelon lozenges are prescribed to cure sore throat. To address different symptoms, Chinese doctors use all parts of the fruit, including the rind and the seeds.

Watermelon is a perfect anti-aging superfood. It has few calories, but is very rich in phenolic compounds that include flavonoids, carotenoids, and tripterpenoids. These compounds help fight inflammation and provide protection against free radicals.

The carotenoid lycopene that gives watermelon its red color, is a very effective free-radicals scavenger. In fact, watermelon contains higher levels of lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable - 15 to 20 mg per two-cup serving. The content depends on the ripeness of the fruit.

Lycopene has the ability to inhibit many inflammatory processes in the body including:
  • the production of pro-inflammatory messaging molecules
  • the expression of such enzymes as the cyclo-oxygenase and the lipoxygenase that can lead to increased inflammatory response
  • the activity of molecular signaling agents like nuclear factor kappa B (NFkB)
Another anti-inflammatory compound, the tripterpenoid cucurbitacin E, blocks the activity of cyclo-oxygenase enzymes and neutralizes reactive nitrogen-containing molecules or the RNS.

Watermelon is an amazing source of the amino acid citrulline. The flesh of a watermelon contains about 250 mg of citrulline per cup. Among others, citrulline is converted by the kidneys and the endothelial cells (cells that line our blood vessels), into amino acid arginine. An enzyme called nitric oxide synthase or NOS, takes the amino acid arginine and uses it to help produce nitric oxide (NO). NO is a muscle relaxant that tells the smooth muscles around our blood vessels to relax. When this happens, the space inside our blood vessels can expand, allowing blood to flow more freely. The relaxation of muscle tension and increase in blood flow constitutes the mechanism by which NO can improve the erectile function in men. Although consumption of watermelon significantly increases levels of arginine in the body, the amount of citruline is not enough to cure erectile dysfunction with one portion of watermelon alone.

Citruline also has the ability to flushe the kidneys and the liver of stored aluminum. Aluminum can be damaging to the cells. It not only enters our bodies from the environment, but is also a byproduct of protein breakdown within the body.

Latest research also demonstrated that citruline may affect the way fat is deposited in the human body. When citruline converts into arginine, arginine-related molecules called polyarginine peptides are also formed in the body. These compounds are able to block activity of an enzyme called tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase, or TNAP. When TNAP activity is shut down, fat cells (adipocytes) create less fat. The less fat is produced, the less fat is deposited in the body.

Watermelon seeds are also beneficial to health. They contain B Vitamins; incredibly bio-available iron and zinc; magnesium; omega 6 fatty acids; and the cardiovascular system supporting amino acid arginine. They also contain lysine, tryptophan, and glutamic acid.

The nutrient content makes watermelon one of the healthiest foods available to us. Although a ripe watermelon contains sugar, the fruit has a law glycemic index which means that it will not cause rapid spikes in blood glucose levels. Some animal studies suggest that watermelon juice may even have a positive effect on blood sugar metabolism.

Watermelon is considered a natural diuretic. It helps increase the urine flow, but unlike caffeine it does not put any strain on the kidneys. Moreover, watermelon helps the liver process ammonia.

Watermelon is a good source of amino acids cystein, glutamate and glycine that are necessary for the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is the body own antioxidant, detox agent and immune system modulator. Glutathione helps the body effectively excrete mercury, aluminum and pesticides, and improves the efficacy of vitamins C and E in the body.

When fully ripe, watermelon is an alkaline-forming fruit. This fact alone makes watermelon incredibly beneficial to health as diseases such as cancer can only thrive in an acidic environment.

Good Health and Longevity - For Educational Purposes Only?

Since the pharmaceutical industry rules the world of the the healthy and the sick, no one is allowed to make certain statements about health and healing even if there were a valid research to back them up. People who are not "careful" enough are accused of quackery or even arrested and prosecuted.


Interestingly enough, spectacular claims can be made by doctors and sales people when a molecule or a substance is patented and sold as a drug, even if that drug comes with a long list of side effects. The drug may eventually harm or kill a patient and law suits may follow, but for as long as nothing "drastic" happens the claims of "cure" can be made shamelessly.  

This is quite amusing, but also incredibly frustrating. If you made a claim that elderberry, ginger and honey cured flu like symptoms and started advertising and selling your "potion" to afflicted people, you would probably end up in court. But no one gets punished for selling drugs with similar curing power even if such drugs may cause drowsiness, liver damage, kidney failure and what not. At least not right away. Justice is done to patients only after some one's health has been damaged irreversibly by the drug. The liability lawyers find a real gold mine in cases like that and the pharmaceutical industry can afford to pay reparations. 

Do not get me wrong. I am not against pharmaceutical industry as such and I am not against allopathic medicine, but I despise a culture of arrogance and cynicism.

I am a healthy individual, but I do not necessarily attribute my health to my genes. There is much more to it. The genes carry an information that may work for you or against you. If there is a history of disease in your family you may be the next in the line to develop it as well. But genetic information is not necessarily a sentence or a curse. Unless you are living with congenital, manifested genetic disorder, your lifestyle is contributing to your overall health and you may never get sick or morbidly obese even if everyone in your family is. If you live a healthy lifestyle, genetic traits remain what they are - potentialities, not death sentences. 

Good health is a precious gift and it is a gift you can give to yourself. I advocate active prevention of disease rather than a cure of existing one. Simple changes in lifestyle and nutrition may have very dramatic changes on your overall health. You can lose weight, reverse chronic disease, slow the aging process and prolong your lifespan. But this does not come as a pill. You will have to change established bad habits and invest some money in your nutrition. And most importantly, you will have to consider yourself worthy of such a change. But once you do, you will be amazed. Your body has the potential to heal itself. You just have to give it a chance. 

Changes to be made include:
  • exercise
  • stress control
  • detoxification
  • diet and nutrition
  • supplementation with high quality nutritional supplements
  • self-perception and attitude 
  • health education - ignorance may kill you! 

The changes may be quite overwhelming and should be made gradually. You may have to consult a certified fitness coach who will help you devise a fitness plan that suits your current needs, but once you gain the knowledge and develop your own intuition you will be able to take care of yourself without any help. Empower yourself. You will not regret it.

Lose Weight with Weight Loss Patches

Do you have trouble losing weight? Do you find it difficult to stick to your diet plan? Why not try a Weight Loss Patch? It is easy and safe.

The latest US statistics claim that 80% of people over 25 are overweight. Considering this fact, weight loss is a big business catering to ever growing market. Everywhere you turn there are ads for new weight loss products and solutions claiming to take away the drudgery of dieting and make weight loss easier and achievable for everyone. So why so many people get stuck in the vicious cycle of weight loss and weight gain? Do all these weight loss products deliver what they promise to?

Although many of these diet supplements will work and help people lose weight, they can have a range of unpleasant and sometimes very serious side effects. They can also be very expensive and may contain potentially harmful ingredients that the manufacturers ‘forget’ to tell you about. But you want to lose weight without having to worry about what the product is doing to your body. And pills are not always sufficiently absorbed by the bloodstream, so you may only be absorbing less than 20% of the nutrients and active agents. You may virtually be throwing your money away. This is where the invention of weight loss patches comes in.


Weight loss patches are small and discreet adhesive patches that you apply to any small area of hair and abrasion free skin. You typically wear one patch for a 24 hour period before replacing with a fresh one.

The patches work by delivering active ingredients through the skin, getting straight to the bloodstream, bypassing the long journey through the digestive system where a lot of the ingredients get lost when they come in contact with the stomach acid.

Weight loss patches typically contain herbal ingredients, these vary but many contain natural appetite suppressants and some work as fat burners which mean even if you have a very high fat and high calorie diet, these patches can help your body break down the fat.

Active ingredients:
  • Fucus Vesiculosus: A natural sea plant extract that has been used for hundreds of years by traditional healers worldwide to aid varying ailments. More recently it has been used by both herbalists and conventional practitioners to help in weight control.
    Fucus contains iodine which your thyroid gland uses to make thyroid hormone, leading to increased metabolism as reported in the American Thyroid Assn., 1996. This increased metabolism has the potential to initiate weight loss without a change in your eating habits, therefore not having to give up your favorite foods.
  • 5 HTP: During dieting, tryptophan and serotonin levels drop dramatically. These low serotonin levels have been associated with carbohydrate cravings and resultant binge eating. 5-HTP can help prevent this dieting associated decline in serotonin, thus enhancing weight loss. Three clinical trials have demonstrated decreased food intake and subsequent weight loss with 5-HTP supplementation.
  • Guarana: Harvested Guarana yields about 10% caffeine. Caffeine pushes the nervous system into action, encouraging it into fat burning by a process called lipolysis. This means it releases fat cells into the bloodstream to use for fuel. It also gives you a decent energy boost that helps performance.
  • Garcinia Cambogia: is a small fruit that resembles a miniature pumpkin. It is indigenous to India and parts of Asia, and an extract called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), suppresses appetite and enhances fat burning. 
  • Zinc Pyruvate: This new compound is used to enhance fat burning, boost endurance, increase lean muscle mass, decrease blood glucose and lower blood cholesterol.
  • DHEA: Dr. Terrence T. Yen was studying the effect of DHEA on genetically obese mice. Although the DHEA-treated mice ate normally, they remained thin and they lived longer than control mice. This leanness effect was also conspicuously noted by Dr. Schwartz. In another experiment, Dr. M. P. Cleary found that even middle-aged obese rats lost weight when fed DHEA-supplemented food. Diabetes, a typical complication of obesity, was also dramatically decreased.
  • Yerba Mate: In 1964 one group of investigators from the Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific Society concluded that Yerba Mate contains nearly all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life. It easily eliminates the sensation of hunger and can impart as much invigoration as a full meal, according to the well-known Chilean herbalists J. Zin and R. Weiss.
  • Flaxseed Oil: Despite all the concern about fat in our diet, the body does require fat to function. The problem is that most people are getting the wrong kinds of fats in their diet and are lacking the so-called good fats in their diets. The human body cannot function properly without two polyunsaturated fats - linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid.
    These fatty acids, which are found in Flaxseed Oil, are essential to normal cell structure and body function.
  • Lecithin: Contains Choline & Inositol which are essential for the breakdown of fats and cholesterol. It helps prevent arterial congestion and distributes bodyweight, increases immunity to virus infections, cleans the liver and purifies the kidneys. 
  • L-Carnitine: Starts the burning of fat for energy by making it possible for the long chain fatty acids it transports to enter the cell. If the fatty acids cannot reach the mitochondria where they are transformed to cellular energy, it stands to reason they are going to be deposited in places where the body will suffer from their presence, as happens in fatty liver disease, fatty build-up in the heart, and obesity, where fatty build-up occurs in the muscles. 
  • Zinc Citrate: Zinc is required for many functions in the body, most important of which for weight loss is fat and carbohydrate metabolism.
Weight loss patches have one great advantage over pills. You do not have to remember to take your pill on a particular schedule. It is very easy to forget a pill. Sometimes it is not very convenient to take the pill 30 minutes or so before a meal of 15 minutes after. You do not always want or can sneak out somewhere to take your pill discretely. With a patch you have your full privacy. You simply stick it on and forget about it. It is simple, quick and absolutely fuss free. Plus, if you apply the patch in an inconspicuous area, no one has to know it is there.

As mentioned above, the efficacy of pills can be unpredictable. But with the patch the active ingredients are directly absorbed into the bloodstream for as long as you are wearing the patch. It must be said that weight loss patches are considerably cheaper than pills and there is no need to worry about suffering side effects.

Weight loss patches are totally natural and pure. You can also stop using the patch whenever you choose without worrying you will suffer from withdrawal effects like you may do with a weight loss pill.

The Slim Weight Patch is an exceptional weight loss product. It is the highest quality weight loss patch available that is trusted and clinically proven to work, affordable and packed full of powerful nutrients giving your body all the ammunition it needs to fight the flab.

The Slim Weight Patch is a perfect solution for those who want to lose weight but are unable to follow a diet or are unwilling to swallow diet pills. It is easy and discreet and most of all, very efficient.

The Colon Cleanse

What's the deal with colon cleansing anyway? Why are so many Americans interested in this rather unorthodox therapy for the body and why should I do it? Well, colon cleansing is a detox for your body and a fresh start for your system. You can fix a car. You can restart a computer. Wouldn't it be great if you could do the same for your body?


Welcome to the colon cleanse, folks - a chance to purge your digestive system of the toxins that build up in the colon and leak into the blood stream. New start, new you.

Yet, you've just got one body to go through this life. Your health counts for something. And with the proliferation of faulty and sometimes dangerous colon cleanse products and systems, you'd do well to know more about colon cleansing and what to look for. The best colon cleanse system for your money and well-being? Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse. We'll get to that.

Your Colon 

The colon is the last stop in your digestive system for nutrients before they're expelled. Most nutrients have been absorbed at the point, though bacterial fermentation of unabsorbed material occurs here.

The issue is that your digestive system is a collection of tissues and microflora that are easily irritated - particularly with the nutrient deficiencies and unhealthy diets of today's modern, fast-paced lifestyle.

The combination of other factors, including stress, lack of exercise and obesity can cause build-up of harmful toxins in the colon that "leak" into the blood stream.

And there's another issue. The lining of your gastrointestinal system is prone to inflammation. This triggers a series of problems, from poor nutrient absorption to gas and constipation, fatigue, illness and weight gain. Yet perhaps most disturbing: new studies link build up of harmful bacteria in the colon to increased risk of colorectal cancer. Yikes.

Few Words About Colon Cleansing 

The benefits of colon cleansing are vast and numerous. They include:
  • mental clarity
  • better skin condition
  • improved immune system
  • less gas and constipation
  • weight management
For those looking to change their diet, cut out fat and excess carbs, shed fat or otherwise make healthy changes to their lifestyle, colon cleansing is an effective way to detoxify the body and start over.

Of course, it's not always that simple. The colon cleanse process is comprehensive and can stress the body, particularly if you're used to large meals or carry more pounds than you should.

Make no mistake - you want to eat healthy, and live an active life. But if you're interested in colon cleansing and the benefits it offers, be aware that many colon cleanse systems are little more than harsh laxatives that blast feces out of the colon, and in the process, trigger worse inflammation of the GI tract and upset the balance of microflora within the gut.

Your Play: Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse 

If you've read this far, you're obviously interested in colon cleansing and the many benefits it will provide for your health. Yet, you know that many, if not most colon cleanse systems are dangerous. Your next move? Digestive Science Intensive Colon Cleanse.

Consider that Intensive Colon Cleanse is a slow, natural therapy for your body. There are no drugs involved. Instead, gentle, natural laxatives, including pysllium husk, magnesium, brown rice fiber.

We're not in a race to beat up your body, as most colon cleansers are. Rather, a gentle, ten day cleanse, to allow your body time to detoxify and prepare for the next steps.

About that other issue we've talked about - inflammation of the GI tract. Intensive Colon Cleanse is strategically formulated to soothe such inflammation, with proven natural ingredients that calm the tissue and optimize your colon for health and vitality. Healthy colon, healthy system. Less gas and constipation. Excess fat melts away. You're lookin' good and you feel amazing.

The Weather and Your Joints

Some people check the news for the weather forecast. But for many people with arthritis and related joint pain, they already know when a storm is on the way.

Joint pain occurs from a variety of factors, one of the most common being arthritis, a broad term to describe the many forms of chronic joint inflammation that can wear away the cartilage. Arthritis deteriorates this rubbery substance and its ability to absorb movement, until, in some people, it's completely worn down to the point that bones rub against each other.


And there is an interesting link between arthritis and the weather: many patients and the doctors who care for them report that joint pain and arthritis symptoms flare up before a storm or a major change in the atmosphere. 

What's the Link? 

The idea that weather influences pain goes back at least 1,600 years, to Hippocrates in the fourth century BC, and probably even earlier. The scientific term is 'human bio-meteorology', and there is a definitive link between the two in obvious scenarios; you'll get burnt if you leave your skin unprotected in the sun for example. There are few studies between arthritis and weather changes, however. So what is the connection?

In theory, it's caused by barometric pressure. This is the pressure exerted by air, and it often drops before a storm. If this drop in barometric pressure caused the tissues around the joints to swell, it is conceivable that changes in the weather, like an impending storm, could trigger a flare-up of arthritic symptoms.

There is some evidence to support this thesis. In the 1960s, researcher John Hollander isolated patients with rheumatoid arthritis in a sealed chamber and gradually increased the barometric conditions. The result? Minor swelling with a rise in humidity and decrease in pressure.

Bear in mind the huge variety of possible atmospheric conditions and combinations with joint pain symptoms. Many doctors are believers too, and experience a surge in patients complaining of joint pain on rainy days. There's clearly a link between the weather and joint pain. Perhaps a better question is how do you manage that pain? 

A Natural Way to Manage Joint Pain 

The answer to this may already be within you. Specifically, several compounds that occur naturally in cartilage, including glucosamine and chondroitin. They're both lost in the ageing process, and there are no rich food sources for either one.

A study conducted in 2006 revealed that patients who supplemented with glucosamine experienced a "significant improvement" for pain symptoms related to osteoarthritis. And four clinical studies suggest that chondroitin can lubricate the joints and block the enzymes that break down cartilage.

Further reason to use a natural joint relief supplement: traditional joint relief medications, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and cox-2 inhibitors are not recommended for long-term use because they're linked to adverse side effects, including gastrointestinal bleeding and increased risk of stroke and heart attack. 

Studies show comparable joint pain relief from willow bark extract found in the  Joint Relief Solution and even reduced loss of cartilage, from avocado and soybean unsaponifiables, as was demonstrated in a 2002 study of patients with osteoarthritis of the hip. 

Conclusion 

You don't control the weather. But many arthritis patients live with chronic pain that flares up from changes in the atmosphere. They literally "feel it in their bones", and with roughly one in three Americans living with ongoing joint pain, they want relief.

The best way to reduce joint pain, quite frankly, may simply be to pursue natural treatment for arthritis with a joint relief supplement with chondroitin and glucosamine. Multiple studies demonstrate these two compounds not only reduce joint pain, they may also protect cartilage and offer greater mobility. That's more that most arthritis medications offer, and probably safer as well.

So if you suffer from painful joints, why don't you give it a try and order the Joint Relief Solution: A blend of natural ingredients, including glucosamine and chondroitin, it's also formulated with willow bark extract. You might be surprised to learn that willow bark has the same active ingredient as aspirin, and shows dramatic reduction in pain symptoms, with less reliance on NSAIDs as well.

Health Benefits of Raw Milk

Real Milk Cures Many Diseases

By J. R. Crewe, MD  

The following is an edited version of an article by Dr. J. R. Crewe, of the Mayo Foundation, forerunner of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, published in Certified Milk Magazine, January 1929. We are grateful to Dr. Ron Schmid ND of Middlebury, CT for unearthing this fascinating piece. The "Milk Cure” was the subject of at least two books by other authors, written subsequently to Dr. Crewe’s work. The milk used was, in all cases, the only kind of milk available in those days - raw milk from pasture-fed cows, rich in butterfat. The treatment is a combination of detoxifying fast and nutrient-dense feeding. Note that Crewe quotes William Osler, author of a standard medical textbook of the day. Thus, this protocol was an orthodox, accepted therapy in the early 1900s. Today the Mayo Clinic provides surgery and drug treatments, but nothing as efficacious and elegant as the Milk Cure.


For fifteen years the writer has employed the certified milk treatment in various diseases and during the past ten he had a small sanitarium devoted principally to this treatment. The results obtained in various types of disease have been so uniformly excellent that one’s conception of disease and its alleviation is necessarily changed. The method itself is so simple that it does not greatly interest most doctors and the main stimulus for its use is from the patients themselves. 

To cure disease we should seek to improve elimination, to make better blood and more blood, to build up the body resistance. The method used tends to accomplish these things. Blood conditions rapidly improve and the general condition and resistance is built up and recovery follows.

In several instances, Osler (Principles and Practices of Medicine, by William Osler, MD eighth edition) speaks of milk as being nothing more than white blood. Milk resembles blood closely and is a useful agent for improving and making new and better blood. Blood is the chief agent of metabolism. Milk is recognized in medical literature almost exclusively as a useful food and is admitted to be a complete food.

The therapy is simple. The patients are put at rest in bed and are given at half hour intervals small quantities of milk, totalling from five to ten quarts of milk a day. Most patients are started on three or four quarts of milk a day and this is usually increased by a pint a day. Diaphoresis (copious perspiration) is stimulated by hot baths and hot packs and heat in other forms. A daily enema is given.

The treatment is used in many chronic conditions but chiefly in tuberculosis, diseases of the nervous system, cardiovascular and renal conditions, hypertension, and in patients who are underweight, run-down, etc. Striking results are seen in diseases of the heart and kidneys and high blood pressure. In cases in which there is marked edema, the results obtained are surprisingly marked. This is especially striking because so-called dropsy has never been treated with large quantities of fluid. With all medication withdrawn, one case lost twenty-six pounds in six days, huge edema disappearing from the abdomen and legs, with great relief to the patient. No cathartics or diuretics were given. This property of milk in edema has been noted in both cardiac and renal cases.

Patients with cardiac disease respond splendidly without medication. In patients who have been taking digitalis and other stimulants, the drugs are withdrawn. High blood pressure patients respond splendidly and the results in most instances are quite lasting. The treatment has been used successfully in obesity without other alimentation. One patient reduced from 325 pounds to 284 in two weeks, on four quarts of milk a day, while her blood pressure was reduced from 220 to 170. Some extremely satisfying results have been obtained in a few cases of diabetics.

When sick people are limited to a diet containing an excess of vitamins and all the elements necessary to growth and maintenance, which are available in milk, they recover rapidly without the use of drugs and without bringing to bear all the complicated weapons of modern medicine.

Under the head of Treatment in Chronic Gastritis, Osler has said, "A rigid milk diet should be tried” (Principles and Practices of Medicine, by William Osler, M.D., eighth edition). And quoting from George Cheyne, he wrote, "Milk and sweet sound blood differ in nothing but color: milk is blood.” Under the heading of treatment in many diseases, it was true that he had little to say about drugs but did say a good deal about diet and particularly as in most every instance he recommended large quantities of milk.

Under chronic Bright’s disease (p 704) he says, "Milk or buttermilk should constitute for a time, the chief article of food.” Under treatment of cancer of stomach (p 505), he says many patients do best on milk alone. Under treatment of rheumatic fever (p 378), he says, "Milk is the most suitable diet.” With Olser as a background, one need not hesitate to go a bit farther. In fact, practically all medical men are agreed as to the value of milk as a food, and as an important part of the diet in the treatment of many diseases. But as the chief remedy in the treatment of disease, it is seldom used.

For more than 16 years I have conducted a small sanitarium where milk is used almost exclusively in the treatment of various diseases. The results have been so regularly satisfactory that I have naturally become enthusiastic and interested in this method of treating disease. We used good Guernsey milk, equal to 700 calories to the quart.

Interestingly, diseases that have no similarity respond equally to this treatment. For instance, psoriasis clears up beautifully. The improvement in tuberculosis or nephritis is equally interesting but there is no similarity in these diseases. I once heard a very distinguished medical man discussing a case of psoriasis. He said, "This was the worst case of psoriasis I have ever seen. This boy was literally covered from head to foot with scales. We put this boy on a milk diet and in less than a month he had a skin like a baby’s.” To me, this means that there was evidently some nutritive substance or vitamin or glandular secretion lacking that was furnished by the milk.

It is well known that there is no time in the life of practically any mammal, but especially of the human, when the body is so beautiful and perfect as during the period when milk is the only food. It will be admitted that there is no period in life when the body is so perfect as in infancy, the infant being fed on milk from a healthy mother.

The Arabs are said (Encyclopaedia Britannica) to be the finest race, physically, in the world. Their diet consists mostly of milk and milk products with fruits and vegetables, and some meat. You are all familiar with the writings of Colonel McCarrison, a medical officer in the British Army. He tells us that for nine years he was stationed in India in a district in the Himalayan Mountains. He said that the natives were very fine physically, that they retained a youthful appearance to advanced age and lived long and that they were very fertile. During the nine years of his residence there he saw practically no disease, no cases of malignancy or of abdominal disease. The diet of these people was simple and consisted principally of vegetables and fruits and milk and milk products.

Steffanson wrote most interestingly of the Eskimo, who, when uncontaminated by civilized conditions were hardy and robust. Their diet of course was almost entirely of meat and fish. He tells us, however, that the habits of meat-eating people are similar to those of carnivorous animals. The wolf first attacks the heart and gets the blood and later eats the glandular organs and viscera, leaving the muscle meats till the last. The Eskimo does the same thing.

During one expedition Mr. Steffanson and party started on a nine months’ trip over the Arctic ice with only one day’s provisions. All previous Arctic explorers had said that civilized men could not live in the Arctic regions without bringing in their supplies. Mr. Steffanson and his party, during the nine months, were almost never without an abundance of food, and much of it was eaten frozen and raw. I wish to show from Steffanson’s experience, first, that it is possible for people to be robust and maintain good health on various types of food of limited variety. That the condition common to all types of diet is, that much of the food is eaten raw. I wish to say here that our very excellent results obtained in the treatment of disease were had with uncooked food and raw milk.

The experience of seeing many cases of illness improve rapidly on a diet of raw milk has suggested more and more the feeling that much of modern disease is due to an increasing departure from simple methods of preparing plain foods. The treatment of various diseases over a period of 18 years with a practically exclusive milk diet has convinced me personally that the most important single factor in the cause of disease and in the resistance to disease is food. I have seen so many instances of the rapid and marked response to this form of treatment that nothing could make me believe this is not so.

We have often seen most satisfactory results in the treatment of anemia, including pernicious anemia, on a milk diet. I have repeatedly seen a marked reduction in the size of simple and toxic thyroid, with improvement in the symptoms of the toxic one. In prostatic diseases and associated conditions, this treatment will achieve rapid and marked improvement in the infection and in the reduction of the gland and lessening of obstruction. A professor of surgery in one of our state universities once said to me, "Since I have used your method in preparing prostate cases, I have had most excellent results and no mortality.” I replied that if he had continued the treatment a little longer, he would not need to operate. All infections of the urinary tract are greatly improved by this treatment.

An old friend of mine, a woodworker, aged 74, had a marked heart lesion and complete prostatic obstruction, so that it was necessary to use a permanent catheter. He had been taking digitalis but this was discontinued, and he received no medication of any kind. The prostate was very large and the residual urine very foul. His recovery has been rapid, and he has been able to work since that time and is now in very good health at 77 years of age. Another local man was treated six years ago for a severe chronic winter cough and prostatic disease, which necessitated his getting up many times at night. He volunteered the information a few days ago that he had no more trouble with any illness since that time.

Indeed we had a number of patients who took the treatment for "beauty treatment.” The tissues become firmer and the general appearance is markedly improved.

One patient with very advanced cardiac and nephritic disease lost over thirty pounds of edema in six weeks. One would expect the large quantities of fluid would increase the edema but the above experience has been repeated many times in lesser degrees.

Hypertension responds with equal gratification. The blood pressure improves rapidly. I have never seen such rapid and lasting results by any other method. One of the patients lived almost exclusively on milk for more than three years.

About ten years ago a very sick man came to the Sanitarium suffering from a severe cystitis and nephritis. He was a diabetic. As milk contains about five percent milk sugar, it was feared that he could not manage this amount of sugar. But he did manage it, and improved in every way and in eight weeks was sugar free. My experience with milk diet in diabetes has been limited, but very interesting. These few patients, only seven or eight, have been much pleased with the results. Insulin was used for a time in some of the cases. They all became sugar free, or nearly so, after from four to ten weeks. From the fact that these patients were able to use a much more liberal diet than diabetics usually can take (after the treatment), it would seem to indicate that at least a partial regeneration of the pancreas is not impossible.

Recently I received a letter from a soldier who was confined in a government hospital in Arizona [for tuberculosis]. He said a former patient of mine had induced him to try this method. He said that he had done so well that a number of the men were also attempting it and he had written for more definite instructions. He also said that the patients had to buy their own milk and received no encouragement from the hospital authorities.

There is a large class of patients who are ill but in whom no definite organic lesion can be found. These patients are often underweight. They may consume a fairly large amount of food but they do not gain in weight or strength. These patients do respond admirably to our system of large quantities of milk. The chief fault of the treatment is that it is too simple. Patients attempt to do it at home, but there are many pitfalls, and it does not appeal to the modern medical man.

To Your Health!

Many people promise themselves to lose weight when the New Year comes, especially after they managed to gain some during the Holiday Season. 

The beginning of a New Year seems to be a perfect time to make some important changes in one's life and weight loss is an issue that is becoming acute for more and more people.


As we age, our metabolism slows dawn considerably and it becomes more difficult to lose weight now than it was when we were younger. In order to lose weight we must understand these physiological changes and adjust our nutrition accordingly. We may have to supplement with digestive enzymes to help our system digest the foods we eat. We may have to add herbs and spices that will enhance our digestion and increase metabolism. And we definitely need to exercise more and eat less than we used to if we want to keep the weight off and stay fit.  

There are many reasons why people are overweight:
  • unhealthy diet that consists of white flour, too much fat, sugar, artificial coloring and preservatives
  • overeating 
  • emotional overeating
  • extreme stress
  • lack of physical activity
  • genetic predisposition to obesity
  • pre-diabetic state or the diabetic disease itself
  • under-active thyroid gland
  • intestinal parasites and candida
  • food intolerance
Going on a strict diet may be necessary in some cases. Diet pills and drinks are perfect to jump start an effective loss of excess weight, but I do not advocate any long term food deprivation or meal replacements. Initially, you may be able to loose some weight with diet pills and drinks, but more often than not, you will gain it back as soon as you revert to your regular diet.

In order to achieve any durable improvement you need to change your lifestyle and the way you perceive yourself. Any drastic change is ineffective because sooner or later you will sabotage it. The changes you implement must be gradual and should not add stress to your life. 

Remember that you eat to nourish yourself and choose your food accordingly. Your food must deliver energy, proteins, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, enzymes, and other vital nutrients that will help your body function properly and stay healthy. Add fruit and vegetable to your diet and eat them raw as often as you can. Eat smaller portions and choose fish and poultry over red meat, olive oil over butter, stevia over sugar... 

Additionally you will need to supplement with high quality vitamin and mineral supplement, L-Glutamine and Omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Healthy, balanced nutrition and sufficient physical activity are essential if you want to reduce your weight and improve the overall health. But if you feel that, despite all these  lifestyle changes, you are not loosing any weight, you may suffer from an under-active thyroid or from intestinal parasites, including candida. You may also have undetected intolerance to some foods. Very often hidden allergies are responsible for the unexplained weight gain. Weight loss is almost impossible unless the allergens are removed from the daily diet. 

It is important to find out the reason for weight gain and a difficulty in losing it. Unless you do, you will struggle from one diet to another without much success but rather a serious damage to your health. 

You may have to consult your health care provider before you set out on an exercise or a diet plan.

Two very important aspects of a successful weight loss program are your determination and motivation to lose weight. If you failed before, you may want to find a health coach and a support group. You could join an exercise group or a healthy-cooking class to get all the support you need. Sharing your success and experience with like-minded people will help you stay on track well beyond January 8th.

Whatever you decide, make the 2013 the healthiest year in your life!

In radiant health - Dominique Allmon
