Latest Studies Show Glutathione Fights Degenerative Diseases

Please take the time to read this short article it could save your life.

Today almost 1 out of every 3 Americans is suffering from some degenerative disease. The two significant culpurts, cancer, and heart disease now kills more than a million people each year here in the states.

Scientific studies and are showing that these diseases in part are related to a deficiency in glutathione.  Glutathiones job is to neutralize toxins, and protect our bodies from illness, increase our longevity by guarding our cells from oxidative stress. As we get older, our glutathione levels significantly decrease, while degenerative diseases increase.

Glutathione is produced in the liver and found in every cell of the body. It is composed of the amino acids (glycine, glutamine, and cysteine). Glutathione works by binding to harmful free radicals while it supports the function of the T-cells – which are needed to ensure a healthy and balanced an immune system which assists in DNA repair.

Foods That Increase Glutathione Production

  • Veggies loaded with Sulfur. Broccoli, cauliflower, kale, onions, garlic, and shallots
  • Fruits packed with vitamin C. Areola cherries, citrus, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and watermelon.
  • Eat selenium-rich foods like brazil nuts. For those of you who are meat-eaters eat it sparingly and make sure it’s naturally environmentally farm-raised organic, beef, buffalo, chicken, and fish.
  • I also like to supplement with herbs when necessary using selenium, milk thistle, and Tumeric.
  • Though not a food getting a good night’s sleep is very important for the assimilation of these foods to help the liver make the Glutathione.

Wishing you good health and every blessing. Bobby

Stop The Flu In Its Tracks & 6 Health Benefits Of Elderberry Extracts

We have developed protocols that address a whole range of ailments and diseases. One of our favorites healing foods that we incorporate into many of our protocols is Elderberry Syrup which also is always our go-to berry during the flu and cold seasons. (which seems to be 12 months of the year here in the states.)

Hippocrates, the ancient Greek “father of medicine,” described the Elderberry plant as his “medicine chest” for the wide variety of sicknesses and diseases it helped to cure.

We have found over the years that Elderberry Syrup will stop the flu before it starts, as well as drastically reduce the time it takes to recover from the effects of the flu.

We have always known that Elderberry syrup was loaded with anthocyanin compounds. These are the phytonutrients responsible for giving the fruit a vivid purple color. We have also always believed these compounds should help strengthen a person’s immune response to colds and viral infections; But, we just did not completely understand how it worked. Thanks to a recent study, we now have an excellent understanding of the mechanisms behind elderberries fantastic ability to fight off colds and viruses.

A Recent Study of Elderberry Proving Its Value In Knocking Out The Flu

A recent study conducted by Professors Fariba Deghani, Dr. Golnoosh Torabian, and Dr. Peter Valtchev showed that the chemical makeup of elderberries can stop the flu virus’s entry and replication in human cells. The group performed a comprehensive study of the mechanism by which phytochemicals from elderberries combat influenza infections.

“What our study has shown is that the common elderberry has a potent direct antiviral effect against the flu virus,” said Dr.Golnoosh Torabian.

“It inhibits the early stages of infection by blocking key viral proteins responsible for both the viral attachment and entry into the host cells.”

The study did not use wild elderberries. They utilized commercially farmed elderberries, whose juice was applied to cells before, during, and after they had been infected with the influenza virus. The phytochemicals from the elderberry juice were shown to be effective at stopping the virus infecting the cells and was even more effective at inhibiting viral propagation at later stages of the flu cycle.

“This observation was quite surprising and rather significant because blocking the viral cycle at several stages has a higher chance of inhibiting the viral infection,” explained Dr. Peter Valtchev.

“In addition to that, we identified that the elderberry solution also stimulated the cells to release certain cytokines, which are chemical messengers that the immune system uses for communication between different cell types to coordinate a more efficient response against the invading pathogen,” said Centre Director, Professor Fariba Deghani.

6 Other Proven Benefits of Elderberry Syrup

  • Allergy & Asthma Relief
    Elderberry extracts are immunostimulating and anti-inflammatory. This makes elderberry an excellent remedy for allergy symptoms. Inflamed sinuses, runny nose, sneezing, itchy watery eyes, swelling, and coughing are all significantly reduced or eliminated by the powerful berry. (I recently suffered from a collapsed trachea and lung. The Elderberry Syrup enabled me to keep my congestion down and stopped mucus build up om my trachea and lungs. None of the prescribed medications worked as well.
  • Colds/Flu
    For many years, we have taught our students to use Elderberry syrup to treat colds and flu. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted during an outbreak of influenza B in Panama in 1995. The study found that within 48 hours, there were significant improvements. fever was reduced in 93.3% of those taking elderberry syrup. 90% of those taking the elderberry was well again within 48 – 72 hours compared to 6 days in the placebo group
  • Immune System
    Filled with powerful antioxidants Elderberries keep the immune system healthy and balanced. Recent research has shown the anthocyanins in the elderberry increase the production of cytokines proteins that act as messengers within the immune system – thereby enhancing the body’s immune response.
  • Antiviral
    Elderberries contain antiviral agents that do a fantastic job of knocking out viruses. The bioflavonoids in the Elderberries inhibit the action of certain enzymes within viruses, rendering them incapable of being able to pierce the cell wall and replicate. Research has shown that Elderflowers are also useful in killing common pathogens.
  • Cystitis/Urinary Tract/Bladder Infections
    Mainly affecting women, UTI’s, cystitis, and bladder infections cause excruciating pain. The constant urge to urinate, accompanied by a burning sensation, can leave the sufferer feeling miserable and depressed. Elderberry syrup or teas can bring significant relief from the pain and burning associated with UTIs. Elderberry causes the kidneys to flush out toxins and bacteria that caused the UTI.
  • Digestive Health
    The high fiber content of whole elderberries can help to eliminate constipation, reduce excess gas, to improve the health of the entire gastrointestinal system.

Hoping this article will contribute to your knowledge of how to take care better care of yourself during times of illness. Wishing everyone health, wealth and happiness. Dr. Bobby

Foods That Help To Control Blood Sugar

Eating the right foods can help manage blood sugar fluxuations.

Leafy Green Vegetables Are Nutritional Powerhouses

Raw or cooked leafy green vegetables are storehouses of vital minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and enzymes. They add color, flavor, and texture to any meal. Make your Greens go beyond the norm. Make smoothies with greens as the base. Make your salads your meal. Try the following:
Kale -It’s rich in antioxidants minerals and vitamins. Vitamins A, C, and K are found in abundance. Don’t forget to pound the kale to soften it if you are eating it raw. See kale chips for a fun way of eating kale.
Microgreens – These small and delicious green are usually immature sunflower greens, but can be grown from almost any of the greens when picked immature. Dr. Ann Wigmore made the famous. Microgreens are packed with nutrients, especially vitamins C, E, and K, and the best thing is you can grow these indoors years around.
Collard Greens – Are one green that is best tasting and easily digested when you cook them and add a little apple cider vinegar on them to enhance their flavor. Their leaves are thick and somewhat bitter, so if you use them raw in salads or smoothies, use them sparingly. They’re one of the plant worlds best sources of vitamin K.
Spinach – Just one cup of raw spinach provides 181% of the DV for vitamin K, 56% of the DV for vitamin A and 13% of the DV for manganese. Goes great in smoothies and salads and taste wonderful cooked alone or incorporated into 100’s of other cooked foods.
Beet Greens – Great when chopped into salads, put in smoothies or juiced. – They are full of minerals like potassium, calcium, riboflavin. Like most greens vitamins A and K are prevalent. One cup of cooked beet greens contains 220% of the DV for vitamin A, 37% of the DV for potassium and 17% of the DV for fiber. When eaten raw in a salad or smoothie, you get the benefit of the life food enzymes.
Romaine – It’s a good source of vitamins A 82% DV and K 60% DV. Romaine works excellent as a basis for salads as well as an addition to smoothies. It’s also one of the best sources of dietary nitrates, that turn into nitric oxide.
Arugula – Like all green leafy vegetables Arugula is rich in vitamins A and K. B9, and has one of the highest levels naturally occurring nitrates, which may help reduce blood pressure, improve blood sugar and blood flow.
Turnip Greens – Filled with nutrients they are more nutritious than the turnip itself. The greens are exploding with calcium, manganese, folate and vitamins A, C, and K. Great in small amounts in smoothies and salads. They are most delicious when cooked.
Tomorrow I will teach you about the fruits and berries you can eat once you have your blood sugar normalize.
Wishing you the best day ever! Bobby

You Can Learn How To Reverse The Effects Of Your Diabetes Now!

diabetes-needles-no-moreWe Believe

We believe every diabetic should have the opportunity to have a say in their treatment, and to try a natural holistic approach to addressing their disease before they are given over to a lifetime of dangerous medications.

What We Offer

We find that all of the students who come to us for the purpose of learning diabetes self-care management and taking personal charge of reversing the effects of their type II diabetes have been able to do so; In fact, all of them have learned how to address their diabetes challenge and have lowered or eliminated their need for diabetic medications.

From their first day with us, they begin experiencing the reversal of the effects of the disease and in as little as two to three day’s many of them experience the joy of seeing their blood sugar beginning to normalize.

It doesn’t’ matter what the cause of our student’s diabetes is, whether it’s due to lack of insulin, its ineffectiveness when the body fails to use the insulin properly, or their body is not producing enough insulin.  So no matter what type of diabetes challenge our students face, they will be able to participate in the reversal process and experience a reduction or elimination of medications, by just following the dietetic changes we teach them.

 “Maintaining a diet with more consumption of raw vegetables, five fruits a day, and plenty of water is highly recommended in beating diabetes naturally. Adding fiber to food consumption is good not only because it helps move the food out of the intestinal tract but also because their chromium content helps control the blood sugar level.” Roger Guzman, M.D.

We offer a safe and supportive environment, a place of learning where each student is taught, coached and encouraged, to take charge of their diabetes health challenge.  All of our regular, as well as our diabetic students, benefit from our detoxification/rebuild program which works hand in hand with their eating the most nourishing foods on the planet which are inclusive of Dr. Ann Wigmore’s living foods lifestyle, health, and wellness technologies.

Give Yourself Thirty Days

Students who have participated in the diabetes reversal program have been able to drastically lower or eliminate their diabetic medications within 30 days. Everyone deserves to take control of their health and enjoy the freedom from medications and the side effects associated with having to take any kind of diabetic medication.

With more than 5 million people taking insulin every day, the measure of success for a diabetic should be how little medication they need to control their blood sugar levels.  As the above quote indicates, many doctors because of excessive patient loads and not enough hours in the day, find it impossible not to prescribe potentially harmful medications, not having the time to help their patients implement health strategies and technologies that would lower or in most cases eliminate the need for diabetic medications. Many of our students have come to us and found they missed the warning signs associated with diabetes. There are six signs of uncontrolled blood sugar:

  1. Frequent Urination
  2. Blurry Vision
  3. Extreme Thirst
  4. Increased Hunger
  5. Un-warranted Fatigue
  6. Slow Wound Healing

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should immediately seek medical care. Once you have met with your doctor and have stabilized your blood sugar, this is the time to begin considering alternative health strategies, designed to strengthen your immune system and enable you to control your blood sugar with little or no medication.

Remember, if left unchecked, diabetes can lead to many other health complications, including amputation, cardiovascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease, blindness, nervous system disease, and death.

We hope this health update and management protocol will make a positive difference in your life or the life of someone you know. Please pass this information on to anyone who may benefit from knowing more about diabetes or who may want to attend the institute and work on reversing their diabetes.

Do not forget we are here to help and support you in learning how to take control of your health, no matter whether you are newly diagnosed or just needing to taking preventative measures.  If you would like to get more information about us or like to sign up to attend one of our retreats or participate in one of our programs, just fill out the contact form or call us.

Blessings, Bobby and Sue Ellen
