We Live In A Toxic World

A study published in ScienceDaily by Cornell University, cited that pollution is the cause of nearly 3 million deaths worldwide each year.

Toxicity is much greater today than ever before. There are many new and stronger chemicals, air and water pollution, radiation and nuclear power. We ingest new chemicals, use more drugs of all kinds, eat more sugar and refined foods, and daily abuse ourselves with various stimulants and sedatives.

The incidence of many toxicity diseases has increased as well. Cancer and cardiovascular disease are two of the main ones. Arthritis, allergies, obesity, and many skin problems are others. In addition, a wide range of symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, pains, coughs, gastrointestinal problems, and problems from immune weakness, can all be related to toxicity.

You have to try this product. In a few days, you will rid your body of these harmful toxins and feel better than you have in months.

Essential Glutathione: The Mother of All Antioxidants

IT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT MOLECULE you need to stay healthy and prevent disease — yet you’ve probably never heard of it. It’s the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease. There are more than 89,000 medical articles about it — but your doctor doesn’t know how to address the epidemic deficiency of this critical life-giving molecule …

What is it? I’m talking about the mother of all antioxidants, the master detoxifier and maestro of the immune system: GLUTATHIONE (pronounced “gloota-thigh-own”).

The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.

This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And your liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of detoxification.

In working with chronically ill patients with Alternative Medicine for more than 10 years, I have discovered that glutathione deficiency is found in nearly all very ill patients. These include people with chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, cancer, chronic infections,  diabetes, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease, autoimmune disorders and more.

At first I thought that this was just a coincidental finding, but over the years I have come to realize that our ability to produce and maintain a high level of glutathione is critical to recovery from nearly all chronic illness — and to preventing disease and maintaining optimal health and performance. The authors of those 76,000 medical articles on glutathione I mentioned earlier have found the same thing!

So today I want to explain what glutathione is, why it’s so important and give you  tips that will help you optimize your glutathione levels, improve your detoxification system and help protect  yourself from chronic illness.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a very simple molecule that is produced naturally all the time in your body. It is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids — cysteine, glycine and glutamine.

The secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule. It acts like fly paper and all the bad things in the body stick onto it, including free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals.

Normally glutathione is recycled in the body — except when the toxic load becomes too great. And that explains why we are in such trouble …

The Importance of Glutathione in Protecting Against Chronic Illness

Glutathione is critical for one simple reason: It recycles antioxidants. You see, dealing with free radicals is like handing off a hot potato. They get passed around from vitamin C to vitamin E to lipoic acid and then finally to glutathione which cools off the free radicals and recycles other antioxidants. After this happens, the body can “reduce” or regenerate another protective glutathione molecule and we are back in business.

However, problems occur when we are overwhelmed with too much oxidative stress or too many toxins. Then the glutathione becomes depleted and we can no longer protect ourselves against free radicals, infections, or cancer and we can’t get rid of toxins. This leads to further sickness and soon we are in the downward spiral of chronic illness.

But that’s not all. Glutathione is also critical in helping your immune system do its job of fighting infections and preventing cancer. That’s why studies show that it can help in the treatment of AIDS.

Glutathione is also the most critical and integral part of your detoxification system. All the toxins stick onto glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool — and out of your body.

And lastly, it also helps us reach peak mental and physical function. Research has shown that raised glutathione levels decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance and shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development.

If you are sick or old or are just not in peak shape, you likely have glutathione deficiency.
In fact, the top British medical journal, the Lancet, found the highest glutathione levels in healthy young people, lower levels in healthy elderly, lower still in sick elderly and the lowest of all in the hospitalized elderly.

Keeping yourself healthy, boosting your performance, preventing disease and aging well depends on keeping your glutathione levels high. I’ll say it again … Glutathione is so important because it is responsible for keeping so many of the keys to Ultimate Health and Wellness.

It is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation. It is the master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant, protecting our cells and making our energy metabolism run well.

And the good news is that you can do many things to increase this natural and critical molecule in your body. You can eat glutathione-boosting foods. You can exercise. And you can take glutathione-boosting supplements. Let’s review more specifics about each.

Tips to Optimize your Glutathione Levels

Eat Foods that Support Glutathione Production

1. Consume sulfur-rich foods. The main ones in the diet are garlic, onions and the cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, asparagus, collards, cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, etc.).

2. Try Immunocal. This is great source of cysteine and the amino acid building blocks for glutathione synthesis. As you know, I am not a big fan of dairy. But this is an exception — with a few warnings. The whey protein MUST be bioactive and made from non-denatured proteins (“denaturing” refers to the breakdown of the normal protein structure). Choose non-pasteurized and non-industrially produced milk that contains no pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics. Immunocal is a prescription bioactive non-denatured whey protein that is even listed in the Physician’s Desk Reference. For more information on Immunocal or to order click here!

Exercise for Your Way to More Glutathione

3. Exercise boosts your glutathione levels and thereby helps boost your immune system, improve detoxification and enhance your body’s own antioxidant defenses. Start with the P.A.C.E. – Progressively Accelerating  Cardiopulmonary Exertion  with Increased Intensity and varying (short )duration.  Training for 12 minutes 3-5 times a week. To access your own P.A.C.E. program So use these  tips and see how they work to help you optimize your glutathione levels. When you do, you will take one more step to lifelong vibrant health.

You Never Have To Do Cardio Again

Many of us constantly worry about losing weight and staying healthy! We tend to want to hit the gym, lift weights, do cardio and take up running. But did you ever stop to think how this affects your lungs???

I bet your doctor never told you this… as you age, cells in your lungs start to die off faster than you replace them  causing your lungs to shrink. And here’s the kicker: The smaller your lungs, the greater your chance of dying  of ALL causes.

But I have proof that it’s completely preventable… even reversible. YOU can make shrinking lungs and shortened spans of good health a thing of the past.

With just minutes a day, you can use Dr. Sears technique to give you the lungpower of a 20-year-old. And with all that EXTRA oxygen and cardiovascular power, you’ll REAWAKEN the energy and vitality you had years ago – even if you’re past retirement.

I’ll talk about Dr Sears technique and how it can revitalize your life in a matter of weeks. And here’s another hint: The health-transforming benefits of this system go far beyond your heart and lungs…
But first, I want you to see some of the remarkable science that lays the foundation for Dr Sears program…

Powerful research from around the world reveals the deadly threat of lost lungpower.

Dr Sears began to make connection between lungpower and strength back in the early seventies. When he discovered the pioneering work of Dr. Dean Ward, who uncovered clinical evidence connecting the loss of lungpower to aging. He even found that lung capacity is the key indicator of how long you’ll live.

This should have shocked the medical establishment… but no one listened. Even now, mainstream medicine continues to ignore the vital importance of lungpower.

Look at this graph… By the time you’re 50, you’ve lost 40% of your breathing capacity. And that’s downright dangerous…

Age Related Loss of Lung Function
Adapted from “Biological Aging Measurement.” Dr. Dean Ward. 1988

Twenty years of clinical research points to the same thing: Loss of lungpower spells bad news for your strength, your heart, your health, and your brain.

  • In 1988, the European Society of Cardiology reported that even a moderate decline of lung volume increases your risk of heart disease by 200 percent. This is true even for those who have no family history of heart disease.2
  • In Denmark, the Copenhagen City Heart Study found that a loss of lung volume raises the risk of first-time stroke by over 30 percent and boosts the risk of fatal stroke by 200 percent.3

When your lung volume drops, your body can’t get enough oxygen. A chronic lack of oxygen sets off a dangerous chain reaction: Your mind becomes foggy… your energy dries up…

Even the simple act of getting off the couch can leave you breathless… and your body becomes a helpless target for any number of deadly diseases.

But it doesn’t have to be this way!

Let me explain…

Aerobic training – the kind most doctors and even the federal government tout as the path to good health – can actually wreck your body. Do enough, and aerobics will make you sick, tired and old before your time.

Do you know how many times my patients have come to me thinking that aerobics and long-duration “cardio” are the best and only way to improve their heart and lungs. NOTHING could be further from the truth.

If you exercise with aerobics, you are always working out within your current aerobic limits. You’re building endurance, but you’re not improving your aerobic capacity.

With “cardio” and aerobics, you never push hard enough to stop to catch your breath. This kind of aerobic exercise trains your body for endurance and efficiency.

That sounds great… but this actually causes your heart and lungs to shrink unnaturally. You get smaller muscles, smaller heart and smaller lungs. What’s worse, it wipes out your heart’s and lungs’ reserve capacity.

And your reserve capacity is what your heart and lungs use to deal with stress.

Injuries or physical trauma, a shocking emotional blow, a particularly intense session in the bedroom with your partner – these all demand reserve energy.

Reserve capacity means your heart has the ability to pump more blood, faster in times of stress. Reserve capacity for your lungs allows them to deal with high exertion like lifting, carrying, running or climbing stairs.

Without reserve capacity, you are much more likely to drop dead from a heart attack or pneumonia when faced with stress. No “reserve capacity” in your checking or savings account means bankruptcy. No “reserve capacity” in your heart and lungs means a fatal heart attack or succumbing to what should have been nothing more than bronchitis or “walking” pneumonia.

The technique that Dr Sears developed builds reserve capacity for your lungs, your heart and your blood vessels… and gives you many other health benefits as well.

Now you can get your hands on the same easy-to-learn technique that:

  • Rebuilds Your Lungs Even If You’re an Ex-Smoker.
  • Reverses Heart Diseaseand Prevents Heart Attacks
  • Adds Years Even Decades – of Healthy Living to Your Life
  • Pumps Up Your Immune System Making You Virtually Disease Proof
  • Builds Pounds of New MuscleWithout Lifting Weights.

This technique is called P.A.C.E., and it proves once-and-for-all that traditional “cardio” is a waste of your time and just doesn’t work.

P.A.C.E. shatters all the myths and misconceptions about health, aging and fitness.

So throw away your jogging shoes, cancel your aerobics class and say goodbye to hours of never-ending workouts. Then round up all your ‘diet’ books and toss them in the garbage…

P.A.C.E. proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that a strong, disease-resistant body and vibrant health do NOT have to be difficult, time-consuming or boring.

With P.A.C.E. you won’t have to do those grueling, monotonous “cardio” routines and you’ll uncover a lean, disease-free body – in as little as 12 minutes a day.  The concept is simple: Short periods of exertion followed by short periods of rest. The P.A.C.E. program takes it two important steps further…

P.A.C.E. stands for: Progressively Accelerating Cardiopulmonary Exertion.

By increasing the intensity and varying the duration of each interval according to the program, your heart and lungs get the right challenge they need to transform and stay fit and strong – well beyond the age of 100.

Where long-duration exercise causes your heart and lungs to shrink, P.A.C.E. does just the opposite. P.A.C.E. builds up reserve capacity in your heart (the only way to avoid a heart attack) and triggers the expansion of your lungs (your ticket to a long, disease-free life).

A groundbreaking study proves … intensity lowers your risk of heart disease – and your risk of death.

A few years ago, researchers published the Health Professionals Study. After studying over 7,000 people they found that the key to preventing heart disease is intensity – NOT long-duration exercise.

Those who followed the basics of  P.A.C.E. program – short bursts of intensity, followed by short periods of rest – dramatically lowered their risk of heart disease. But that’s not all…In another study, intensity turned out to be the key to longevity and reduced risk of death.This study reinforces what Dr Sears discovered 20 years ago: long-distance runners have a higher risk of sudden cardiac death than other athletes.

Exercise Intensity and Risk of Death

Dr Sears came to call this pattern the “Jim Fixx Phenomenon,” after the popular fitness guru of the 70s. Fixx claimed that the secret to heart health and long life was endurance running – up until he died of a heart attack – while running.

Reinforcing that the “new science” from the 1960s that promoted jogging was a big mistake. Long-duration aerobic training doesn’t work. It isn’t natural and your body knows it.

P.A.C.E. puts an end to the hardship of exercise. It super-sizes your lungs and bulletproofs your heart. Just what you need to prevent heart attacks and live a disease-free life.But the benefits of P.A.C.E. don’t stop there… P.A.C.E. is the most effective fat-melting technique there is.

P.A.C.E. puts your body into “fat-melting” mode. Imagine flicking a switch inside your body that told it to stop making fat – AND melt off all the excess fat you currently had.

How does P.A.C.E. do this? It’s all about when you melt fat…

Long-duration exercise melts fat during your workout. But this sends a message to your body that you need a reserve of fat available at all times – so the next time you exercise you’ll have something to throw on the fire. This self-defeating cycle ensures that your body stores more fat every time you finish exercising.

That’s why you may have such a hard time dropping fat at the gym. Every time you melt fat during exercise, you body reacts by storing more.

P.A.C.E. sessions can be as short as 10 to 12 minutes. This short duration helps re-train your metabolism so that you store energy in your muscles, and stop storing it as body fat.

In fact, when you begin to do P.A.C.E., your body will start to get rid of its stored body fat while you rest and recover from your workout. This is called “afterburn.” In fact, your body continues to melt fat for up to 24 hours after you finish.

After a while, your body stops storing fat all together – it simply doesn’t need to hang onto it anymore. This afterburn is the key to getting rid of excess body fat – not long hours of boring exercise.

Now you can benefit from Dr Sears own research. Real people – just like you – melting fat without exhausting “cardio” or “aerobics”… living disease free for life…

  • Watch your fat melt away doing sessions that last only 12 minutes…
  • Wake up each morning knowing you had ZERO chance of having a heart attack – even if it runs in your family…
  • Have the strength and mobility to travel the world…
  • Have the strength and mobility to travel the world well after retirement…

With  P.A.C.E. you no longer need to worry about being overweight, becoming dependent on others, needing  prescription drugs or fear getting sick.

The P.A.C.E. program puts you in a league of your own.

You can join this group yourself just by ordering:   P.A.C.E.: The 12-Minute Fitness Revolution.

It’s a lot easier – and faster – than you think. In the time it takes you to check your e-mail or drink a cup of coffee, you can do an entire P.A.C.E. session.

P.A.C.E. is helping thousands of people from around the world, and will show you exactly what to do and why it works for so many people in so many places. And just like them, you  get all the benefits of P.A.C.E. so you can transform your body and your health too. So don’t delay. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. Seize the opportunity and get started today.

Reversing Diabetes

With the rise and increase number of my patients being diagnosed with Diabetes, I have recently spent more time in drugs stores than I would like. Purely because I wanted to see what they had to offer the Diabetic patient! Well, Rite Aid, CVS and Walgreens all had large diabetes sections offering support for a “diabetes lifestyle”—glucose monitors, lancets, blood pressure cuffs, medications, supplements and pharmacy magazines heavily supported by pharmaceutical advertising. Patients are encouraged to get their eye check ups, monitor their blood pressure, track their blood sugars, have foot exams and see their doctor’s regularly for better management of their blood sugars—all apparently sensible advice for diabetics.

But what if type 2 diabetes could be completely reversed? What if it wasn’t, as we believe, an inexorable, progressive disease that has to be better “managed” by our health care system with better drugs, surgery and coordination of care? What if intensive lifestyle and dietary changes could completely reverse diabetes?

A ground breaking new study in Diabetologia proved that, indeed, type 2 diabetes can be reversed through diet changes, and, the study showed, this can happen quickly: in 1 to 8 weeks. That turns our perspective on diabetes upside down. Diabetes is not a one-way street.

If we have a known cure, a proven way to reverse this disease, shouldn’t we be focused on implementing programs to scale this cure?

We used to believe that once cells in your pancreas that make insulin (beta cells) exhausting themselves, there was no reviving them and your only hope was more medication or insulin. We now know that is not so.

Continuing misconceptions about what causes diabetes and our unwillingness to embrace methods known to reverse it have lead to a catastrophic increase in the illness. Today one in four Americans over 60 years old has type 2 diabetes. By 2020, one in two Americans will have pre-diabetes or diabetes. Tragically, physicians will miss the diagnosis for ninety percent with pre-diabetes or diabetes. (Below I tell you exactly what tests to ask your doctor to perform and how to interpret them).

From 1983 to 2008, world-wide diabetes incidence has increased 7 fold from 35 to 240 million. Remarkably, in just the last 3 years from 2008 to 2011, we have added another 110 million to the diabetes roll call. And increasingly small children as young as eight are being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult onset diabetes). They are having strokes at 15 years old and needing cardiac bypasses at 25 year old. The economic burden of caring for these people with pre-diabetes and diabetes will be $3.5 trillion over 10 years.

If we have a known cure, a proven way to reverse this disease, shouldn’t we be focused on implementing programs to scale this cure? Unfortunately despite this extraordinary new research, the findings will likely be pushed aside in favor of the latest greatest pill or surgical technique because behavior and lifestyle change is “hard.” In fact, with the right conditions and support, lifestyle diet and lifestyle change is very achievable.

What did research show?

Reversing Diabetes: Can it Be Done in a Week?

The article, entitled Type 2 Diabetes “can be reversed” was exquisitely done. The bottom line: A dramatic diet change (protein shake, low glycemic load, plant-based low-calorie diet but no exercise) in diabetics reversed most features of diabetes within one week and all features by eight weeks. That’s right, diabetes was reversed in one week. That’s more powerful than any drug known to modern science.

We know from gastric bypass patients that with rapid changes in diet right after surgery, within just a few days, without significant weight loss, diabetes goes away—fatty livers heal, cholesterol levels plummet. Some theorized it was because of changes in the stomach hormones related to the gastric surgery. Others, including the researchers of this new study surmised that maybe it was just the drastic change in diet. So they went about studying just the diet change without surgery.

They studied 11 people with diabetes and compared them to a control group. Through very sophisticated techniques including MRI imaging, they measured their blood sugar and insulin responses, cholesterol levels and fat in the pancreas and liver (some of the hallmarks of diabetes) before and after diet changes at 1, 4 and 8 weeks.

What they found was revolutionary. The beta cells—the pancreas’ insulin producing cells—woke up, and the fat deposits in the pancreas and liver went away. Blood sugars normalized in just one week, triglycerides dropped in half in one week and reduced 10-fold in eight weeks. The body’s cells became more insulin sensitive and essentially, in just 8 weeks, all evidence of diabetes was gone and the diabetic patients looked just like the normal controls on all the testing.

While this may be surprising to most, it is something I see regularly with my patients. With focused, strategic, scientifically based nutritional intervention, combined with exercise, stress management and sugar and insulin balancing nutritional supplements, many of my patients completely reverse their diabetes. And the side effects—more energy, better sleep, improved sexual function and weight loss—are all good.

What most don’t realize is that pre-diabetes and diabetes exist on a continuum and both dramatically increase the risk of heart attacks, stroke, cancer, infertility, sexual dysfunction, depression and dementia. You don’t have to get diabetes to be at risk for all those problems. That is why it is so important to get your doctor to diagnose pre-diabetes early and implement an intensive lifestyle program to help you reverse it.

You may be at risk if you have extra belly fat, have a family history of diabetes, gestational diabetes, are in at risk ethnic group (Asian, Hispanic, African American, Native American, Middle Eastern), have high triglycerides (> 150 mg/dl) or a low HDL (< 50 mg/dl) or have high blood pressure.

If any of these apply to you or you have other cause for concern, here is what to do.

How to Reverse Your Diabetes

First, get your doctor to test the following:

  1. A 75-gram glucose tolerance test measuring BOTH glucose and insulin fasting and 1 and 2 hours later. Your fasting blood sugar should be less than 100 mg/dl and your 1 and 2 hour sugar levels should be less than 130 mg/dl. Your fasting insulin should be less than 10, and your 1 and 2 hour levels should be less than 35.
  2. Triglycerides should be less than 150 mg/dl and HDL (good cholesterol) should be over 50 mg/dl, and the triglyceride to HDL ratio should be less than 4. These ranges are meaningful only if you are on no medication.
  3. Newer cholesterol tests measure the size of your cholesterol particles and is very effective in diagnosing problems with pre-diabetes early. In fact, this is the only cholesterol test we should be performing.

And here’s the program I use for my patients:

  1. Eat a low glycemic load, high fiber, plant-based diet of vegetables, beans, nuts, limited whole grains, fruit and lean animal protein
  2. Vigorous exercise (fast walking, running, biking, etc.) 30 minutes 4-5 times a week and strength training 20 minutes 3 times a week
  3. Take a Immunocal daily, a good multivitamin, fish oil, vitamin D and blood sugar and insulin balancing homeopathics and nutrients (including chromium and alpha lipoic acid)

Remember, pre-diabetes and diabetes is not a one way street and the solution is not at the bottom of a pill bottle or the end of an insulin syringe, it is at the end of your fork and in the shoes on your feet!

Now I’d like to hear from you …

Do you think diabetes can be reversed? If so, how?

What methods have you tried to gain control of your diabetes or weight gain? How have those methods worked for you?

Why do you think accessible, scalable, lifestyle solutions like these that actually reverse chronic illness are not more frequently prescribed in conventional doctor’s offices? How can we change this?
