The Basics of Epitalon

What Is Epitalon?
Epitalon is a synthetic peptide made of four amino acids (alanine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, and glycine), that is based on a natural peptide called epithalamin extracted from the pineal gland. It was synthesized by Vladimir Khavinson, a Russian professor and gerontologist, whose research focused on the development of peptide preparations used to restore function in various organs in order to prevent and reverse the aging process. He is currently the Director of the Saint Petersburg Institute of Bioregulation and Gerontology

Khavinson first extracted Epithalamin from the pineal gland of calves. However, due to the inherent limitations in production, he formulated a synthetic version of the peptide called Epitalon.

How Is Epitalon Used?
Epitalon is usually administered via intravenous or intramuscular injection or transdermally (through the skin), as peptides are broken down in the digestive tract and therefore unable to enter the bloodstream, where they can exert their effects, intact.

Although some results are promising, most of the research has been conducted in animals and cells, meaning that both the potential health benefits and safety profile of Epitalon remain largely unresearched. Never take Epitalon without consulting your doctor or use it as a replacement for approved medical therapies.

What the Research Shows for Epitalon

1) Retinitis Pigmentosa
Retinitis pigmentosa is a genetic, degenerative eye disease that results in the degeneration of the rods in the retina. Rods are one of two types of receptors in the eye (the other one being cones) that convert light into chemical signals that can be processed by the brain.In a clinical trial, Epitalon improved degenerative damage to the retina caused by this condition in 90% of the patients . In rats, Epitalon improves the function of retinal cells by preserving their structure and preventing degeneration .

A single study using humans and rats cannot be considered sufficient evidence to support this potential use of Epitalon. Further clinical research is needed to confirm these preliminary findings.

2) Correcting Circadian Rhythms
As we age, our circadian rhythms become disrupted and less pronounced, coinciding with decreased melatonin secretion and altered sleep cycles .

In a small trial on 14 elderly people, epithalamin improved melatonin production and altered its cycle and peak concentrations to resemble those of young people .

In aging monkeys, Epitalon stimulated evening melatonin secretion and reestablished the circadian rhythm, which is associated with cortisol release .

Again, only a small clinical trial and an animal study have tested this potential health benefit. Larger, more robust clinical trials are required.

Animal and Cell Research (Lack of Evidence):
No clinical evidence supports the use of Epitalon for any of the conditions listed in this section. Below is a summary of the existing animal and cell-based research, which should guide further investigational efforts. However, the studies listed should not be interpreted as supportive of any health benefit.

3) Increasing Lifespan
When the peptide was administered to fruit flies during the larval stage, it increased the average lifespan by 11-16 percent .

In a study on rats exposed to equal amounts of light and darkness, varying amounts of light and darkness, or permanent light illumination, Epitalon increased maximal lifespan in all three groups by 68 days, 95 days, and 24 days, respectively, in comparison to controls.

In mice with high blood pressure, injections of Epitalon did not affect the average lifespan of the mice but did increase the maximal lifespan by 12.3% .

Cell-based studies found that Epitalon increases telomerase activity. This enzyme adds more nucleotides to the protective sequences at the end of chromosomes (telomeres), thus allowing cells to divide and grow longer .

4) Increasing Enzyme Activity
A decrease in pancreatic enzymes has been shown to occur in elderly individuals . In both young and old rats, Epitalon increased the activity of enzymes that digest protein and sugar, with the effect being more pronounced in the older rats . Another study found that the peptide increased enzyme activity in the small intestine of aged rats [12].

5) Cancer
Below, we will discuss some preliminary research on the anticancer activity of Epitalon. It’s still in the animal stage and further clinical studies have yet to determine if this peptide is useful in cancer therapies. Do not under any circumstances attempt to replace conventional cancer therapies with Epitalon.

When Epitalon was given to rats with colon cancer, the peptide increased lymph flow (containing white blood cells) and apoptosis (programmed cell death), while it slowed cancer growth [13].

In mice with mammary tumors, Epitalon significantly decreased the number of mice with multiple tumors and decreased the maximum size of tumors in comparison to control mice [14]. The researchers also found that the peptide reduced the expression of certain genes that, when over-activated, play a key role in the development of breast cancer in both mice and humans.

Another study in mice found that treatment with Epitalon reduced the number of mice with malignant tumors (cancerous tumors) and prevented cancer from metastasizing (moving to another location in the body) in all of the treated mice. In contrast, metastases were observed in 3 out of the 9 mice that did not receive treatment with Epitalon .

Antioxidant Status
Oxidative stress, which occurs when the body has a deficit in antioxidants to counteract the effects of free radicals (damaging molecules that are missing electrons), plays a causative role in many diseases, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and even neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases [16].

One of the most potent antioxidants produced by the human body (endogenous antioxidants) is melatonin [17].

Epitalon’s antioxidant effects are thought to be in part due to its ability to stimulate melatonin production as well as mechanisms other than through the action of melatonin [18].

In male rats, epithalamin increased total antioxidant capacity by 36% and superoxide dismutase (SOD, a powerful endogenous antioxidant) by 19% [19].

When epithalamin was incubated with blood taken from breast cancer patients, they showed increased activity of antioxidant enzymes and levels of antioxidative vitamins [20].

Conclusion
While some preclinical studies on Epitalon look promising, there is still a lot of research that needs to be conducted in healthy and diseased individuals. Epitalon has not been approved by the FDA but is available in supplements Talk to your doctor before taking Epitalon or any other supplements, especially if they have been insufficiently researched.

New Peptide Science Targets Breast Cancer Cells

Being able to target Breast Cancer cells, with peptides specifically designed to identify and destroy breast cancer cells is beginning to gain a foothold as a highly efficient approach to selectively deliver targeted destruction to cancer cells with minimal cellular toxicity.

Even the highly aggressive form of breast cancer HER2+ is being down regulated by the utilization of peptide enhanced therapies.. The new polymalic acid-based mini nanodrugsare peptides are synthesized and specifically characterized to inhibit growth of HER2+ breast cancer. These mini nanodrugs are highly effective and may soon be able to be substituted for Trastuzumab.  The addition of the peptides have caused the HER2+ cells to be recognized, targeted and destroyed by the polymer-attached trastuzumab-mimetic 12-mer peptide at a faster and safer rate than ever, preventing cancer cell proliferation and and causing a significant reduction in tumor size by more than 15 times vs. untreated control group.

Dr. Ann Wigmores Orginal VegeKraut “Veggie Kraut” Recipe

Eating this amazing food everyday will completley recharge your immune system.

While I was the director of the Creative Health Institute, this wonderful food was served at every meal.  Some of the benefits associated with eating  regular and VegeKrauts  are:

Sauerkraut is an immune system booster
Packed with enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals, sauerkraut has a wonderful effect on the immune system and has been used as an immune booster for centuries.  Sauerkraut contains, lactic acid bacteria and photochemical which are created and enhanced during the fermentation process. These naturally occurring, beneficial by-products of sauerkraut help boost the immune system which leads to a decrease in a number of health problems. The common cold, skin problems, weight gain, and tainted blood are all fixed by a healthy functioning immune system.

Sauerkraut is a cancer fighter
Sauerkraut’  is a superfood, with the ability to inhibit and even destroy cancer cells.  Studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry concluded that sauerkraut is a cancer inhibitor. The study discovered that the fermentation of cabbage produced a substance called isothiocyanate, which prevents cancer growth, particularly in the breast, colon, lung, and liver.  The University of New Mexico published a study linking sauerkraut consumption by adolescent females to a reduced risk for breast cancer earlier studies indicate sauerkraut may reduce the risk for other forms of cancer including lung, colon, prostate, and liver

“We are finding that fermented cabbage to be healthier than raw or cooked cabbage, especially for fighting cancer”, says Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland, located in Jokioinen, Finland. A recent study by the American Center for Cancer Research has found that sauerkraut has a profound effect on preventing and healing breast cancer. Based on reports that breast cancer rates amongst polish women in the United States were much higher than those in Poland researchers set out to find out why. Their answer; the women who still lived in Poland ate significantly larger amounts of sauerkraut especially important while they were in adolescence. The research found that the women who immigrated Americanized’ their diets and stopped eating as much of the superfood that is sauerkraut thus increasing their rates of breast cancer.

Digestive Aid
Eating sauerkraut is a great way to protect the balance of bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. Sauerkraut is one of the few foods that contain the bacterium Lactobacilli Plantarum. L. Plantarum is a very dominant strain of healthful bacteria which helps your digestive system in the following ways: boost the immune system by increasing antibodies that fight infectious disease help inhibit pathogenic organisms including E.coli, salmonella and unhealthy overgrowth of candida (yeast) create antioxidants (glutathione and superoxide dismutase) that scavenge free radicals which are a cancer precursor transforms hard-to-digest lactose from milk to the more easily digested lactic acid. It neutralizes the anti-nutrients found in many foods including the phytic acid found in all grains and the trypsin-inhibitors in soy generates new nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, digestive aids, and the trace mineral GTF chromium. These various properties are the best scientific reasons given for what has been known by loyal users for millennia, sauerkraut cures an upset stomach and is the best natural physic there is. Many sources say raw fermented foods are beneficial to the digestive system by increasing the healthy flora in the intestinal tract or creating the type of environment for them to flourish. Sauerkraut and its juice are traditional folk remedies for constipation. Fermentation actually increases nutrient values in the cabbage, especially vitamin C.

Fermented foods facilitate the breakdown and assimilation of proteins. They have a soothing effect on the nervous system. The benefits of sauerkraut and sauerkraut juice have been recognized for generations. In some families of southern Germany, the children are fed raw sauerkraut twice weekly to support their intestines.

Avian Flu Fighter
With the spread of Avian Flu spreading across the globe,  Korean scientist, Kang Sa-Ouk of Seoul National University, took 13 chickens infected with the avian flu virus and fed them Kim Chi extract.  11 of the birds recovered. It appears that the vital bacteria are created during the fermenting process and this gives the Kim Chi (Kraut)  its health-boosting qualities.

Dr. Ann Wigmores VegeKraut

  •  1 green cabbage
  • 1 purple cabbage
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 sweet red onion

Super Healthy Smoothie Rescipe

SMOOTHIES

Super Health Restorer Smoothie Recipe

Make This Smoothie Work For You As It Cleanses, Detoxes, Rejuvenates And Rebuilds Your Body.

  • 2 cups of probiotic-enzymatic liquid
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 10 strawberries
  • 1 mango
  • 2 apples
  • 1 banana
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ounce of wheatgrass

Power of Spinach – Spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach and the other dark leafy greens mentioned above strengthens bones.

The A and C vitamins in spinach plus the fiber, folic acid, magnesium and other nutrients help control cancer, especially colon, lung, and breast cancers. Folate also lowers the blood levels of something called homocysteine, a protein that damages arteries. So spinach also helps protect against heart disease. The flavonoids in spinach help protect against age-related memory loss. Spinach’s secret weapon, lutein, makes it one of the best foods in the world to prevent cataracts, as well as age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of preventable blindness in the elderly. Foods rich in lutein are also thought to help prevent cancer.

Power of Strawberries – Strawberries have higher levels of vitamin c, fiber, folate and potassium than most other fruits like bananas, apples and even oranges.

Apart from the obvious health benefits, a recent study by Dr. Gene Spiller, Nutrition, and Health Research Center has shown that eating one serving (about 8-10 strawberries) a day can significantly decrease blood pressure, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Other studies showed additional benefits: Strawberries are found to reduce the risk of cancer, enhance memory function and rheumatoid arthritis.

Power of Mangos – Mangos are super fruits! Succulent sweet tropical delights high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper and Vitamin A.  According to a new research study, mango has been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. Several trial studies suggest that polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds in mango are known to offer protection against breast and colon cancers, as well.

Power of Apples – French researchers found that a flavanoid called phloridzin that is found only in apples may protect post-menopausal women from osteoporosis and may also increase bone density. Boron, another ingredient in apples, also strengthens bones. Another study shows that children with asthma who drank apple juice on a daily basis suffered from less wheezing than children who did not drink apple juice on a regular basis.onth. Another study at Cornell University found that the quercetin in apples may protect brain cells from the kind of free radical damage that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease.  When we eat apples we can lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. Studies have shown that people who eat two apples per day may lower their cholesterol by as much as 16 percent.

Power of Apples & Cancer Prevention

Lung Cancer
According to a study of 10,000 people, those who ate the most apples had a 50 percent lower risk of developing lung cancer. Researchers believe this is due to the high levels of the flavonoids quercetin and naringin in apples.

Breast Cancer
A Cornell University study found that rats who ate one apple per day reduced their risk of breast cancer by 17 percent. Rats fed three apples per day reduced their risk by 39 percent and those fed six apples per day reduced their risk by 44 percent.

Colon Cancer
One study found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 43 percent lower risk of colon cancer. Other research shows that the pectin in apples reduces the risk of colon cancer and helps maintain a healthy digestive tract.

Liver Cancer Prevention
Research has found that rats fed an extract from apple skins had a 57 percent lower risk of liver cancer.

Power of Lemons – Fresh lemons have strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers. Lemons are also used as a weight loss aid as lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser. Lemons contain many healthful substances–notably citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene–that promote immunity and fight infection. The most valuable ingredient of lemon, next to vitamin C, is citric acid, of which it contains 7.2 percent. Lemon contains more potassium than apples or grapes, which makes its juice beneficial to the heart.

Power of wheatgrass

  • Increases and sustains energy naturally
  • Detoxifies and cleanses your body
  • High alkalinity helps balance your body’s pH level
  • Strengthens your immune system
  • Insoluble fiber gently cleanses your digestive tract and promotes regularity
  • Complete food with enzymes and all essential amino acids
  • Natural source of antioxidants to help repair damaged cells
  • Excellent source of beta-carotene, folic acid, and vitamin C

Be sure to add this amazingly healthy smoothie to your weekly repertoire of different smoothie concoctions. Be sure to not have the raw spinach more than 3 days in a row. You can change out other greens on the alternate days.

Wishing you life health and happiness

Sugary Drinks Are Killers, Whether Your Over, Or Under Weight

In a new study just released, Cambridge University, researchers, have confirmed what most of us Naturopaths and alternative medical doctors have been saying for the last fifty years: Sugary drinks raises a person’s chances of developing type 2 diabetes and many other sicknesses and diseases.

Study after study has shown sugary drinks, especially those with high fructose corn syrup, promote disease and are true killers.

Glass or Plastic? What Is Your Water Bottle Made Of?

Glass or Plastic?

Due to the low cost of manufacturing and shipping, plastic containers are the primary choice of the bottled water industry, which in their thinking keeps the price down for the consumer. The problem with this is that scientists are finding that it not such a good deal for us because the hidden cost may be our health.

Studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic contained phthalates, suggesting that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic bottle or even the cap. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits for phthalates in bottled water — the bottled water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals!

 Plastic Recycling Codes

The following plastics are considered safest for water and food storage. Check all your plastic containers to make sure these symbols and the numbers 1,2,4 and 5 are on them. If these symbols and number are not present on plastic container or bottle, or you see another symbol and/or number do not drink or eat anything from this container.

Though the following numbers represent the safest plastics, this does not mean we have a complete understanding of all the possible health hazards plastics may present. So, the best practice would be to not drink from plastic bottles or store items in plastic, and never heat water or food items in them. Remember clean glass containers are always the best option.

 Polyethylene terephthalate ethylene (PETE), code 1.

 High-density polyethylene (HDPE), code 2.

 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), code 4.

 Polypropylene (PP), code 5.

 ALWAYS AVOID ANY PLASTIC WITH THESE CODES

 CODE (3) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leach phthalates which cause major problems with hormones and are toxic to them male reproductive system. It can be marked by code 3. If a water bottle, plastic wrap, shampoo container, cooking oil container, blood bag or meat wrapping has this mark or number or is not marked at all find a new brand!

CODE (6) –  Polystyrene is used in Styrofoam products. It leaches styrene (a neurotoxin) when it comes into contact with hot, acidic, or fatty foods. This cup is used being used by many fast food and coffee shops to serve hot drinks in.  What you may have thought was a caffeine buzz, was the neurotoxins being released into you coffee or tea.  This chemical is also found in the most medicine and vitamin bottles, WOW, plastic cutlery, foam packaging and the cartons you may be get your eggs in.  It’s marked with recycling code 6.

CODE (7) – Polycarbonate containers leach bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disruptor associated with a long list of health concerns, including obesity. Baby bottles, “sippy” cups, ketchup bottles, syrups, window cleaners, 5-gallon water cooler bottles, reusable water jugs, and reusable beverage bottles are typically made out of this plastic. Products may be marked with recycling code 7 and/or the letters “PC.” It’s important to note some containers that aren’t made from polycarbonate may also be marked with a code 7 because the category also includes any plastic that doesn’t fit into the 1 to 6 recycling code categories.  

May your life be blessed with health, peace and love.

Creative Health Institutes Take On Proper Seed Storage

 

As raw living foodest practicing, Dr. Ann Wigmore’s Living Food Lifestyle, we depended on sprouted seeds, to provide us with a host of powerful live enzymes, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. We have found the best way to insure we have the best seeds is to grow and store our own, for future use. This is not always possible and so we still get the majority of our seeds from vendors.

If you are going to purchase seeds make sure the seeds have been carefully dried under proper conditions, before you use them, or store them for later use. Proper storing of your seeds will give them the best chance of germinating and giving you the highest quality sprouts and micro-greens. The great thing is storing seeds is easy to accomplish.

At Creative Health Institute we do not have the facilities to freeze or refrigerate our seeds, but luckily we use them so quickly we do not have the need to freeze or refrigerate them.

Our basic storage rule is to keep our seeds in a cool, dry, dark place where the temperature is between 55 and 70 degrees and the humidity is less then 70%. The lower the humidity, the better.

Most of you will be able to freeze or refrigerate your seeds. Freezing them will at least quadruple the life of your seeds and refrigerating them doubles their life.

With more than 39 years of experience we have a pretty good understanding of different seeds shelf lives.  I have designed the following chart that should provide you with a conservative estimate of the life of seeds that have been properly dried. Since we do not have the room for refrigerators and freezer your storage time could be from 2 to 4 times longer. If you have more questions, feel free to call Bobby as 866.426.1213.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING SOMEONE SHOULD DO IF THEY HAVE CANCER?

SIMPLE – THEY SHOULD EAT A TOTALLY RAW ORGANIC LIVE FOOD DIET!
In my opinion, only raw organic living food has the enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals intact.  If you want to get the nourishment you need to survive cancer eating organic raw live foods and only organic raw live foods, while you have cancer will provide your body with the energy it needs to create clean healthy cells, destroy the cancer cells and replace them with new healthy cells.  I believe you can push cancer into remission, ultimately destroy it and live a cancer free life.

Eating only organic raw fruits, vegetables, fermented food, nuts, seed and sprouted grains will give you the best chance of not only surviving the cancer, but will also enable you to strengthen your immune system and put a stop to any other sicknesses or diseases that may have gained ground in your body.

When I say you need to eat a organic raw living food diet it mean just that. That  means you must completely stop doing what you have been doing and to not eat any cooked food – Zero-Zilch-Nada – NOTHING COOKED!

Destroying cancer cells is serious business and if you are going to survive and have a healthy long life, you must be able to stop eating cooked foods and do what other people will not do! Think about it… Chemotherapy, radiation, hospitals, drugs, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, body aches, baldness, absolute exhaustion, immune system torn own, being sick every day, financial ruin, etc. OR choose to simply eat organic living foods that provide your body with everything it needs to heal itself.

All of our guests at Creative Health Institute (CHI) eat only 100% organic, nutrient dense, raw living foods which are properly combined and easily assimilated. Dead food is never served and because we adhere to the living food principal taught by Dr. Ann Wigmore we always make sure that every meal is enriched with sprouted foods.

 If you or a loved one is suffering from any disease, or sickness consider going on a 100% raw organic living food diet, until the sickness or disease has be alleviated. I spend time with 100’s of sick people every month and with most I see what many people would consider miracles as these individuals take charge of their own health and bring about their own healings, by simply using raw organic living foods as the basis for their turnarounds.

Since 1973 Creative Health Institute has taught more then 19,000 people how to take charge of their health and to overcome sickness and disease through by living a raw food lifestyle.

Wishing everyone the greatest of health and happiness,

My Toughts About Cellular Malfunction

Here is something to think about… Could all diseases and sicknesses be based in cellular malfunction? I have listed 10 reasons that I feel lend some credence to this train of thought.

Dr Ann Wigmore taught us that all disease is based in deficiency and toxicity. If this is true then it makes sense the first thing to suffer the effects of deficiency and toxicity would be our cells. What do you think; Could the detox rebuild program that we do here at Creative Health Institute (CHI) that includes wheat grass, living foods, rejuvelac, fermented foods, pure alkaline water, fresh clean air, proper rest at the right time, exercise and a positive-loving mental attitude change how a cell replicates and presents itself in our bodies?  

1. There are 243 different types of cells that come in all shapes and sizes.
2. They are the bricks and mortar from which all living tissue and organs and systems are made.
3. Your body (tissue, organs and systems) is made up of more than 75 trillion of these cells.
4. You (spirit-brain) is given sole responsibility for every one of these 75 trillion plus cells health and welfare.
5. You have the greatest of responsibilities, as only you can guarantee the health and safety of every cell.
6. When you take charge of the situation, by providing proper guidance and direction every cell will answer to your commands.
7. Every second 10’s of millions of cells are reborn, creating amino acids, vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes and adenosinetriphosphate (ATP – cellular energy), all await your direction.
8. An almost endless army of cellular workers along with the bricks and mortar you will ever need to self generate a healthy body are under your command.
9. So, a strong healthy body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given the proper information and substance to do so.
10. So, a sick and diseased body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given improper information and harmful substance to do so.

Wishing you and your family the best year ever.

UCSD Research: Vegetables Have Chemicals That Fight Cancer, Strengthen Body

 SAN DIEGO — Researchers at UC San Diego’s Moores Cancer Center are investigating whether simple changes in diet can fight prostate cancer. Dave McLaren was among other participants in a pilot program to see if prostate cancer patients would change their lifestyle and diets by eating more amounts of vegetables. “In fact, they were amazingly receptive,” said Dr. Kellogg Parsons, a urologist who was involved in the study. Doctors in the initial study wanted participants to eat seven or more servings a day of vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes, kale, broccoli and radishes. “I feel better in my head, I guess — knowing I’m not abusing myself at the cellular level,” said McLaren. McLaren remembers being diagnosed with prostate cancer. “This cannot be happening to me,” said McLaren as he recalled what went through his mind at the time. Now, researchers have begun a new study to see if the vegetable diet can actually stop prostate cancer in its tracks. “What we’re hoping [and] what we’re thinking is that this intervention… this high vegetable diet is going to keep the cancer from progressing,” said Parsons. Researchers don’t know if the diet could actually cure the cancer, but if it keeps the cancer from growing, they said it’s a major step for patients in less aggressive and early-stage cases. “That means they don’t need treatment,” said Parsons. “That means they don’t need surgery. They don’t need radiation.” McLaren admitted he is a little skeptical. “I’d like to see the study to prove that,” he said. “It’d be great.” Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. In 2007, about 223,000 men in the United States were diagnosed with it and about 29,000 died from the disease that same year. Researchers believe the vegetables contain chemicals that potentially either fight the cancer or strengthen the body’s ability to fight the disease.

Dr. Ann Wigmores Orginal VegeKraut “Veggie Kraut” Recipe

Eating this amazing food everyday will completley recharge your immune system.

While I was the director of the Creative Health Institute, this wonderful food was served at every meal.  Some of the benefits associated with eating  regular and VegeKrauts  are:

Sauerkraut is an immune system booster
Packed with enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and minerals, sauerkraut has a wonderful effect on the immune system and has been used as an immune booster for centuries.  Sauerkraut contains, lactic acid bacteria and photochemical which are created and enhanced during the fermentation process. These naturally occurring, beneficial by-products of sauerkraut help boost the immune system which leads to a decrease in a number of health problems. The common cold, skin problems, weight gain, and tainted blood are all fixed by a healthy functioning immune system.

Sauerkraut is a cancer fighter
Sauerkraut’  is a superfood, with the ability to inhibit and even destroy cancer cells.  Studies published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry concluded that sauerkraut is a cancer inhibitor. The study discovered that the fermentation of cabbage produced a substance called isothiocyanate, which prevents cancer growth, particularly in the breast, colon, lung, and liver.  The University of New Mexico published a study linking sauerkraut consumption by adolescent females to a reduced risk for breast cancer earlier studies indicate sauerkraut may reduce the risk for other forms of cancer including lung, colon, prostate, and liver

“We are finding that fermented cabbage to be healthier than raw or cooked cabbage, especially for fighting cancer”, says Eeva-Liisa Ryhanen, Ph.D., research manager of MTT Agrifood Research Finland, located in Jokioinen, Finland. A recent study by the American Center for Cancer Research has found that sauerkraut has a profound effect on preventing and healing breast cancer. Based on reports that breast cancer rates amongst polish women in the United States were much higher than those in Poland researchers set out to find out why. Their answer; the women who still lived in Poland ate significantly larger amounts of sauerkraut especially important while they were in adolescence. The research found that the women who immigrated Americanized’ their diets and stopped eating as much of the superfood that is sauerkraut thus increasing their rates of breast cancer.

Digestive Aid
Eating sauerkraut is a great way to protect the balance of bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract. Sauerkraut is one of the few foods that contain the bacterium Lactobacilli Plantarum. L. Plantarum is a very dominant strain of healthful bacteria which helps your digestive system in the following ways: boost the immune system by increasing antibodies that fight infectious disease help inhibit pathogenic organisms including E.coli, salmonella and unhealthy overgrowth of candida (yeast) create antioxidants (glutathione and superoxide dismutase) that scavenge free radicals which are a cancer precursor transforms hard-to-digest lactose from milk to the more easily digested lactic acid. It neutralizes the anti-nutrients found in many foods including the phytic acid found in all grains and the trypsin-inhibitors in soy generates new nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids, digestive aids, and the trace mineral GTF chromium. These various properties are the best scientific reasons given for what has been known by loyal users for millennia, sauerkraut cures an upset stomach and is the best natural physic there is. Many sources say raw fermented foods are beneficial to the digestive system by increasing the healthy flora in the intestinal tract or creating the type of environment for them to flourish. Sauerkraut and its juice are traditional folk remedies for constipation. Fermentation actually increases nutrient values in the cabbage, especially vitamin C.

Fermented foods facilitate the breakdown and assimilation of proteins. They have a soothing effect on the nervous system. The benefits of sauerkraut and sauerkraut juice have been recognized for generations. In some families of southern Germany, the children are fed raw sauerkraut twice weekly to support their intestines.

Avian Flu Fighter
With the spread of Avian Flu spreading across the globe,  Korean scientist, Kang Sa-Ouk of Seoul National University, took 13 chickens infected with the avian flu virus and fed them Kim Chi extract.  11 of the birds recovered. It appears that the vital bacteria are created during the fermenting process and this gives the Kim Chi (Kraut)  its health-boosting qualities.

Dr. Ann Wigmores VegeKraut

  •  1 green cabbage
  • 1 purple cabbage
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 sweet red onion
  • 1 tablespoon  lemon juice or rejuvelac
  • Optional Seasonings to taste (garlic, cayenne, herbs, caraway seeds) – optional

Finely chop cabbage, saving outside leaves. Chop carrots and onion. Place vegetables into a large bowl or crock-pot. Mix in optional seasonings. Cover the top outside with cabbage leaves. Place large plate and weight on top (we use a large stone). Press down to remove air from Kraut. Leave at room temperature for 3 days or until it is sour enough for your taste. Place the Kraut in a glass jar with a lid and refrigerate. It will keep up to for several weeks. Eat a ½ cup serving a day with meals and enjoy the wonderful flavor and nutritional benefits of this wonderful food! Another zero fat, healthy bacteria, non-fruit recipe to give you amazing health!

Wishing you the best day ever,

New Test For Prostate Cancer Still Not As Effective As A Raw Vegan Diet…

New test for prostate cancer still not as effective as a raw vegan diet
February 03, 2011

A new experimental test is hoped to have a significant effect on the process of identifying which patients with prostate cancer need more aggressive treatment.

Doctors currently have an 84% accuracy rate in establishing whether a given subject’s cancer will become life threatening (deadly), although once a successful tumour diagnosis is made physicians still have no reliable way of knowing which cases will become potentially lethal, therefore they have to make difficult decisions over monitoring, radiotherapy or surgery.

Raw vegan chocolate cake or prostate cancer? Hmmm.
Surgery on the prostate can leave the patient incontinent or impotent, and radiation has the same effect but with the added potential for hair loss and other ‘radioactive’ related sicknesses.

The resulting problem is overtreatment, and according to Ronald DePinho of the Dana-Farber Cancer Center in Boston, around 48 men are treated for every life saved. That is a staggering waste of resources by anybody’s standards.

To counter these problems DePinho and his colleagues have devised a test which according to their data can help doctors give more accurate diagnoses. Published in Wednesday’s online edition of the journal, Nature, the scientists’ results showed that through their test the accuracy score went up to 91%.

The results came after tests on mice identified four genes which, when combined in activity can drive prostate cancer towards becoming deadly.

They then verified the tests validity by applying them to human tumour samples.

While the research is a breakthrough and will come as good news to individuals suffering with prostate cancer or tumours, there is an alternative to aggressive radiation treatment or surgery.

In his book, The China Study, T. Colin Campbell lifts the lid on the food and pharmaceutical industries which perpetuate their business through constant propaganda.

Campbell was heavily involved in scientific research into food studies, and his findings led to him realise that a plant based diet can not only reduce the risk of cancer developing in the body, but can actually reverse the progress of the disease.

The reason most people don’t know about his findings is because they accept the word of their doctor who is undoubtedly sponsored by the world domineering food industry and ‘big pharma’ corporations, and they would lose vast sums of money if their continual development of anti-this-or-that medications halted, all of which is funded by millions of tax payer’s dollars every year.

Raw veganism has been used to successfully cure diabetes and cancer, and it also eliminates obesity. On a meat diet the body consumes too much protein which can activate and stimulate cancer growth in the human body.

Campbell first discovered evidence of this when he worked in the Philippines trying to solve problems with starvation. He found that rich families were living on high meat content diets because they could afford to do so, and while the poor had to live on reduced protein intake, the majority of illness cases that led to cancer occurred in the rich families’ children.

After 40 years of research and exploration into the subject he established that by consuming raw, whole foods, the body could in fact turn off the cancer gene, but not only that, as on a raw diet the body was able to reverse degenerative illnesses like diabetes and asthma, completely curing both in many cases.

Given the choice between eating good, wholesome and tasty food which strengthens the body and eradicates diseases, or being subjected to months of sickening radiation treatment, just about everyone with sense would surely choose the former.

Please share your thoughts or experiences with prostate cancer, its treatment or the raw food diets by leaving a comment. If you would like to be trained in holistic raw living food  nutritional counseling, as taught by Creative Health Institute. Contact us at 866.426.1213

Update From American Institute for Cancer Research – 1/3 of Most Common Cancers Can Be Prevented!

2/04/11 Washington, D.C. – American Institute for Cancer Research – Scientists estimate about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented through healthy diets, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. This year, World Cancer Day (February 4) focuses on cancer prevention.

We asked American Institute for Cancer Research’s Director of Research Susan Higginbotham, PhD, RD, to explain what the science says about how you can start lowering your cancer risk.

It seems like we’re always reading about new study in which a certain food or food substance either reduces or increases our cancer risk. It can get confusing – so much so that many Americans throw up their hands.

That’s why AICR conducted the biggest-ever review of the scientific evidence, and then distilled thousands of studies worth of research on the subject of diet, weight, physical activity and cancer into 10 recommendations that people can incorporate into their daily lives.

Of course, when it comes to cancer, there are no guarantees. But these ten recommendations represent the best advice available anywhere on how we can reduce our risk.

What’s more, the research shows that every little bit counts – making even small changes in the right direction today can make a difference in the years, and decades, to come.

Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight

Image courtesy of American Institute for Cancer ResearchMaintaining a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do to reduce your risk of many of the most common cancers. We advise people to aim to be towards the lower end of the healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) range, which is a BMI from 18.5 to 25. Find out your BMI with AICR’s BMI Calculator.

There is now convincing evidence that excess body fat is a risk factor for six types of cancer: post-menopausal breast cancer, colon cancer, esophageal cancer, endometrial cancer, kidney cancer, and pancreatic cancer; the evidence linking excess body fat to gallbladder cancer was judged probable.

In fact, scientists now say that, after not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight is the most important thing you can do for cancer prevention.

Be physically active for at least 30 minutes every day.

Most of us know that regular physical activity can help keep our hearts healthy now, the good news is that it can also reduce our risk of many cancers.

This is why AICR recommends people aim to be physically active for at least half an hour a day and then, as fitness improves, increase this level to about an hour.

And physical activity provides a double bonus: Not only does it reduce cancer risk in its own right, but being regularly active is also a great way of maintaining a healthy weight.

Limit consumption of calorie-dense foods (foods high in fats and added sugars and/or low in fiber) and avoid sugary drinks.

When we consistently choose foods and drinks filled with empty calories, we can indirectly impact our cancer risk, because this eating pattern can lead to obesity, which is a major cancer risk factor.

That’s why it’s a good idea to choose food rich in nutrients and high in fiber, doing so helps avoid being overweight.

Eat more of a variety of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans.

At AICR we recommend a plant-based diet for lowering cancer risk that means making meals and snacks that feature only modest amounts of meat and instead revolve around vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans. A day in which you get at least five portions of these plant foods is a good day.

And diets that feature a variety of plant foods, like physical activity, have a double effect for cancer prevention. As well as the direct effect they have on cancer risk, people who eat plenty of them are also less likely to be overweight.

Limit consumption of red meats (such as beef, pork and lamb) and avoid processed meats.

To protect against cancer, AICR recommends limiting consumption of red meat (such as beef, pork and lamb) to 18 ounces (cooked weight) per week. You could have six meals a week featuring 3-ounce portions, or three meals a week with 6-ounce portions; it’s up to you.

Processed meats like ham, bacon, sausages and cold cuts are best saved for special occasions.

This is because there is convincing evidence that red and processed meat increase risk of colorectal cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer in the US.

If consumed at all, limit alcoholic drinks to 2 for men and 1 for women a day.

The evidence that all types of alcoholic drinks are a cause of a number of cancers is now stronger than ever before.

This means cutting down on the amount you drink could play an important role in reducing your cancer risk.

Limit consumption of salty foods and foods processed with salt (sodium).

Many of us know that having too much salt increases risk of high blood pressure.

But people might not be aware that consuming too much salt also probably increases risk of stomach cancer.

Don’t use supplements to protect against cancer.

AICR doesn’t recommend relying on dietary supplements for lowering cancer risk. If at all possible, it’s best to get the nutrients we need from our diets. This is because, in certain cases, very high doses of vitamin supplements have been associated with increased cancer risk.

There are, however, some groups of Americans – such as nursing and expectant mothers and seniors – who may benefit from dietary supplements for other reasons. Your doctor can provide you with guidance tailored to your needs.

It is best for mothers to breastfeed exclusively for up to 6 months and then add other liquids and foods.

Research is showing that our overall cancer risk affected by what we do throughout the whole of our lives. This is why AICR says it’s never too early to think about cancer prevention.

Breastfeeding your newborn is a good example of this, as it probably reduces the risk of the baby becoming overweight and obese.

But there is also a cancer prevention benefit for the mother, as breastfeeding your baby reduces your risk of breast cancer.

After treatment, cancer survivors should follow the recommendations for cancer prevention.

There is some evidence that, particularly with breast cancer, cancer survivors can reduce their risk of recurrence by eating healthily and maintaining a healthy weight.

This is an area where more research is needed and this is why cancer survivorship is one of the priority areas for AICR’s research program.

But while this research is being carried out, people who want to stop cancer recurring are best advised to follow the recommendations for preventing it in the first place.

Taken together, these Recommendations for Cancer Prevention form an empowering, evidence-based message that’s important to remember on World Cancer Day, and all year long:

Making small, everyday changes today can help you lower your risk of cancer throughout your lifetime.

Are You Feeling Depressed? Researcher Say You May Need More Omega -3 Fatty Acids

A diet low in omega-3 fatty acids may produce neurobiological effects that may result in a predisposition for mood disorders, according to animal research published in Nature Neuroscience.

Maintaining a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids is commonly recommended in clinical guidelines related to the management of:

•    Heart disease
•    Diabetes
•    cancer

Researchers fed mice a diet designed to mimic a lifelong imbalance in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. A dietary reduction in omega-3 fatty acids was associated with diminished functioning of the cannabinoid CB1 receptors in the mice’s brains.

The investigators found that the dietary-induced reduction in the functioning of cannabinoid CB1 receptors was associated with impaired emotional behavior in the mice. In addition, synaptic plasticity, which is dependent on cannabinoid CB1 receptor activity, was deficient in the malnourished mice in at least two brain regions: the prefrontax cortex and the nucleus accumbens.These brain regions are crucial for reward, motivation, and emotional regulation.

Today’s research provides a neurobiological correlate for epidemiological evidence that low dietary levels of omega-3 fatty acids are linked with an increased incidence of mood disorders, including depression.

Good Sources Of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Walnuts, flax-seeds, beans, live oil and winter squash are excellent foods that will provide you with concentrated sources of omega-3 fatty acids. One-quarter cup of flax seeds contains about 7 grams of omega-3 fatty acids while one-quarter cup of walnuts contains about 2.3 grams. At Creative Health Institute we make sure our guests and students have plenty of flax seed and walnuts to insure their getting enough omega-3 fat in their daily diets.

Study Confirms Broccoli and other Vegetables Prevent Cancer

Broccoli and other vegetables are extremely healthy and have the ability to fight cancer. They contain antioxidants among other health benefits. For the first time, researchers have discovered how vegetables are blocking the genes that cause cancer. The result of the study has been published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.

To get maximum benefit, it is imperative that broccoli is cooked the right way. Broccoli has to be steamed lightly, in order to have the cancer-preventive component, sulforaphane, present in it. Too many people are overcooking the broccoli, which is destroying the enzyme myrosinaise, and losing its efficiency. Combining the powder supplement with broccoli sprouts maximizes the benefits and makes it twice as efficient to fight cancer. While broccoli sprouts contain a lot of myrosinase, the powder supplement carries the precursor to sulforaphane.

Scientists examined the metabolites in plasma and urine in four men after they had eaten four meals of only broccoli sprouts, then powder supplements only and finally a combination of both. Three hours after consumption, the effect of the broccoli sprouts and the powder supplements was showing, with an increase of sulforaphane absorption, while a combination of both showed plasma and urine metabolites much earlier and at much higher levels than when either was consumed separately.

Other foods that increase health benefits in combination with broccoli are mustard, radishes, arugula and wasabi.

The study was conducted by a team of scientists led by Jenna Cramer from the University of Illinois. Based on the new information, scientists are optimistic about the development of new drugs to treat cancer.

CHI DETOX – Family Style

Jimmy Ehrhart, 15


Jessica Ehrhart, 12

Standing in front of a small group of Creative Health Institute guests with a Sharpie in hand and a smile on his face, Jimmy Ehrhart, 15, recorded numbers on a large pad of paper propped upon an easel.

“I feel great right now,” Jimmy told the other guests who were going through a 10-day detox with him. It was the beginning of Day 8 and relief had come for Jimmy and others who had experienced the typical uncomfortable symptoms people have when they withdraw from sugar, caffeine, high-protein and high-fat foods.  “I feel better than I have ever felt—honestly.”

The Camden, Michigan, teen was front-and-center for the morning and happy about the progress everybody was making  with the detox. Jimmy came to CHI with his younger sister, older brother, mother and grandfather. All of them wanted to make significant changes to their diets and health. They decided to go raw after reading books such as Victoria Boutenko’s Raw Family and watching videos including Thirty Days Raw.  Now that their detox at CHI is nearly complete, the family agrees visiting our nutritional education center in Hodunk, Michigan,  has been one of the the best things they’ve ever done together.

Jessica Ehrhart, 12, said she plans to spread the word about the great time she’s had with her family and new friends at  Creative Health Institute.

“I would like to see lots of families come here. I wish everyone in the world could do it because then everyone would just be healthy,” Jessica said. “Fast foods are gross!”

After seeing the videos and reading the books his mother exposed the family to in preparation of their detox, Jimmy still was a bit skeptical about how much a raw food diet could affect him. He was willing to give raw living foods a try because he had some health concerns and wanted to see what a difference the Ann Wigmore way of life could make. Jimmy said for several years he has suffered from asthma, allergies, trouble sleeping, snoring and being overweight.  It’s been tough for him to join the fun and games kids his age typically enjoy.

“I couldn’t play sports.  My friends, they all try to run around town and I have a hard time keeping up to them with the asthma, ” Jimmy said. “It is embarrassing to stay over a friend’s house because I snore so loud.”

Now Jimmy feels a new hope and expects he’ll be able to participate more fully in teenage activities he sees others enjoy.  His snoring stopped right away. He’s been sleeping well every night and his asthma hasn’t been bothering him at all.  He’s been exercising every day and says he feels hopeful that he’ll be able to keep up with his friends in basketball, football and baseball. He has always tried to participate in sports but due to his health issues he has spent most of his time on the bench.

Jimmy also had a problem with food allergies.  He said he especially seemed to be allergic to nuts, particularly cashews. At CHI he has found he can eat all different kinds of nuts without any allergic reaction. He said he believes it’s because he had been eating nuts that were not organic and all of the food at the center is organic.  He said he was really happy to learn that eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean a life-sentence of “boring salads.” He was especially impressed with a raw cashew-cheese-based blueberry cheesecake an intern made one night for a CHI guest who was celebrating her birthday during the detox.

Jessica said all along she was excited to come to the Creative Health Institute with her family. She said she knew she needed to make some changes in her life and she was ready to move forward.

“I would like to improve my asthma and coming here definitely helped it,” she said. “I was always on the couch. I couldn’t breathe so I always had to have an inhaler wherever I went. It is really horrible.”

Jessica hasn’t had to use her inhaler once during the 10-day detox.  On day eight she reported feeling better than she has felt in a very long time. She said she has “tons” of energy and now she can breath without wheezing — something she hasn’t been able to do since she was a small child.

One of Jessica’s favorite things about the 10-day detox at CHI has been the cooking lessons. Jessica helped make marinara sauce to serve at dinner one night and she said she was surprised by how simple and tasty it was. She also has enjoyed rebounding (jumping on a miniature trampoline) in the morning and sitting in the banya (our Russian-style sauna). She said she really wants to come back for the raw chef classes to learn how to make gourmet raw living foods.

Jimmy and Jessica’s mother, Kimberly Ehrhart, said she’s very happy her family came to CHI together to detox with raw living food. She’s eager for her next visit and suggesting to staff that she’d like to see a CHI reunion for guests in the summer.

“I would highly suggest the 10-day detox,” Kimberly said.  “It’s more than cleansing for your body and mind, and it’s more than just new relationships — it’s family.”

Sleep is a Necessity … Not a Luxury At Creativee Health Institute

Here at Creative Health all of our students are taught how to incorporate good sleep habits and how to identify which natural non habit forming sleep aids will assist them and others in their healing journeys.  We know,  for our bodies to overcome physical stresses we need to feed ourselves living foods combined with proper rest. These two elements are the basis for boosting the bodies immune system and putting the brakes on illnesses and disease that stress the body.

 The Center for Disease Control has adopted the slogan, “Sleep is a necessity … not a luxury” and has even implemented a viral e-card campaign on the Internet to spread the word.

Are you getting by with 5 to 6 hours of sleep or less per night? Have you convinced yourself you can function just fine on this small amount of of sleep?

The National Sleep Foundation has noted that the need for sleep changes as we age, but as a general guideline, adults need at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep during every 24 hour period. Sleep is when our body rebuilds muscle, calms nerves, balances hormones and does overall repair to the damages that  physical and mental stresses our body systems have endured during our waking hours. 

30% to 50%  of north Americans are getting insufficient sleep. Pour sleeping habits and insomnia weaken the immune system, brings on depression, aches and pains, weight gain,  lowered mental capabilities,  confusion, irritability, headaches and even death.

Best Life Ever!

Report: Harmful chemicals found in tap water of 31 U.S. cities

Millions of Americans in at least 31 U.S. cities could be drinking tap water contaminated with the harmful chemical hexavalent chromium, according to a report released Monday by the non-profit Environmental Working Group.

While the dangerous carcinogen, otherwise known as chromium-6, may sound foreign to most people, perhaps the name Erin Brockovich will ring a bell.

After chromium-6 was discovered in the water supply of Hinkley, California, Brockovich helped bring about a lawsuit that ultimately ended in 1996 with the utility company, Pacific Gas & Electric, paying more than $330 million in damages.  Norman, Oklahoma; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Riverside, California, top the non-profit organization’s list of cities with water supplies contaminated by chromium-6.

Although the Environmental Protection Agency does not require water utilities to test for chromium-6, and has not established a legal threshold for how much can be in our water, the agency has classified the toxin as “likely to be carcinogenic to humans.”

“I was expecting to find hexavalent chromium in some of the cities we checked, but I didn’t expect it to be so widespread,” said Rebecca Sutton, a senior scientist with the Environmental Working Group and the lead author of the study.

Sutton said there is a well-documented corollary between exposure to chromium-6 and a greater risk of stomach cancer in humans. Additionally, there is ample animal evidence showing a broad risk of gastrointestinal tumors in rats and mice exposed to the toxin, she said.

Worse, skipping tap water in favor of bottled water does not guarantee you’ll be protected.

“Bottled water is not necessarily any safer than tap water,” said Sutton. “We just don’t have any guarantee that hexavalent chromium isn’t in that water.”

So how can you protect yourself? Sutton says your best bet is buying an effective water filter.

“Getting the water filter is a great way to protect yourself and your family,” says Sutton. “It’s a step you can take yourself; you don’t have to wait for government action.”

Samples from the test provided a “one-time snapshot” of water systems that serve 26 million people, the Environmental Working Group said. But the organization said the results show that more federal regulation of the cancer-causing chemical is needed.

The National Toxicology Program has said that chromium-6 in drinking water shows “clear evidence of carcinogenic activity.”

California’s state environmental agency has proposed capping levels of the chemical in drinking water at 0.06 parts per billion. The Environmental Working Group said 25 of the cities it tested showed exceeded that level.

To conduct its test, the organization said it recruited volunteers in 35 cities to collect tap water samples “from unfiltered taps in homes or in public buildings such as hospitals, libraries and malls,” the report said.

Here are the cities

You Are Controlled By Circadian ‘Believe It or Not’

It is now known that the molecular circadian clock can function within a single cell. At the same time, different cells may communicate with each other resulting in a synchronised output of electrical signaling.

Studies of circadian rhythms have turned up the following sometimes hard-to-believe information: 

  1. If we were to live in total darkness, we would fall into a cycle of days that last up to 25 hours or longer.
  2. Heart attacks are twice as likely to occur between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. as between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m. and between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  3. Body temperature is lowest before waking up in the morning, and highest in the late afternoon. A temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit might indicate fever at 7 a.m., but by 5 p.m. would be normal.
  4. People react more strongly to substances they’re allergic to around 11 p.m., while antihistamine drugs have the greatest impact in the morning.
  5. Eating one meal a day of 2,000 calories results in a weight loss when eaten as breakfast, but produces a weight gain as supper.
  6. Suicides peak in the morning and early afternoon.
  7. The length of time a person sleeps is related more closely to body temperature rhythms and bedtime than to how long the person has been awake. In experiments, even after being awake more than 20 hours, people free of time cues slept twice as long when they went to bed when their temperature was at its highest (in early evening) than when it was at its lowest (in the early morning).
  8. The senses of hearing, taste and smell are more acute at certain times of day. Studies show sensory acuity is highest at 3 a.m., falls off rapidly to a low at 6 a.m., then rises to another peak between 5 and 7 p.m. (This cycle is related to the hormone cycle; when steroid hormones are released, sensory acuity falls.) 
  9. Aspirin stays in the body longer when taken at 7 a.m. than when taken at 7 p.m.Body clocks are why doctors often prescribe taking medicines at certain times of day. For example, both aspirin and antihistamines work best taken in the morning. But some types of chemotherapy for cancer may be more effective and less toxic if administered at night.
  10. Women go into labor most often between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. and least frequently about midday. Births between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. are associated with increased probability of complications in both the baby and the mother.
