You Really SHOULD Be Using Calcium Bentonite Clay!

 

I’ve done several posts about using  triple-swelling calcium bentonite clay and, if you have never used it as a self-help health aid, you’re really missing out. It has so many uses and benefits I think every household should have some on hand. I’ve put together some of the testimonials I’ve received from being on Perry Arledge’s mailing list (she used to offer free seminars on working with clay and is a real expert in the field) to help convince you to give it a try. It really IS amazing what working with this special clay can help with health-wise!

You can use it internally, externally, on your kids, your pet, your garden and more…..

 

13 Year Illness Gone After A Month On Clay

I am turning 25 in just a few days and have been taking the clay internally three times a day for a month now. I have been sick on and off for 13 years and the traditional doctors could never find a cure for me. I had just accepted that I had a sickly body and a weak immune system. I had bald spots and began fainting at the age of 12, then at 20 I became nauseous all of the time. When I graduated from college, I was so sick that I needed to take some time off before obtaining my masters degree. I began researching different ways to detoxify my body. I started getting colonics, bought an infrared sauna, and eating raw food. But it was only when I started drinking a Calcium Bentonite clay that I started feeling like a normal human being for the first time in 13 years!!! After 3 weeks, I had an energy surge. I started wanting to do things I hadn’t wanted to do in a long, long time…simple things like take a hike with my family. This clay has given me back my passion to live my life to the fullest. Before the clay, I was sick, exhausted, and depressed. Now, I feel alive! People are even saying how good my skin looks! Like I have a glow!! I will, without a doubt, be a lifelong customer. Anytime I have any questions, I just call Perry A. and she answers my calls directly and with such kindness and grace. This clay truly saved my life.

Cat Tumors Disappear with Clay

This summer I participated in one of your teleseminars and submitted a question about whether the clay could heal the large (cancerous-looking) bleeding tumor on my cat’s tail.   When the vet shaved it, it looked like a rotten potato attached to his tail –much bigger than his actual tail, so it could not be removed – so the only thing they could offer was amputation.  Well I did not want to do that unless it meant life or death and there were absolutely no other options, so I started using the clay in the meantime just to stop the messy bleeding.

Well, long story short, my cat cooperated well with me applying the clay and it really helped stop the bleeding.  However, in time an oozing hole developed where the bleeding used to be.  I kept that hole packed with clay, and within an incredibly short time the entire huge tumor had just melted away.  The hole is gone now, there is just a tiny bump left that I can feel at this point.  I continue to apply the clay and will do so until there is no hint anything left but his beautiful tail.  Although my cat was never sick from this, he was acting rather old and depressed, but now he has the energy of a kitten again.

I gave a co-worker a small jar of clay for the same purpose as her cat also had a VERY large tumor on its neck. When I checked back last week, she said her cat’s tumor had completely dissolved and was in fact also completely gone!

For both these cats, the vets had no treatments other than risky or disfiguring surgery with no guarantees.  I am so glad that I had already purchased the clay for some other reason I can’t even remember. I plan to start using it more diligently to improve my health and also the more difficult to treat problem my other cat has with sinus infection and gum irritation.  Thanks so much for helping spread the miracle.  We are ALL so very grateful!!!

Gardening With Clay

I had horrific tomato plants full of psyllid nymphs and cucumbers not doing too well.
I have powdered my plants on March 1st and I can’t see any psyllid anymore and cucumbers are looking okay.

On March 2nd I have powdered carrots, leeks, beetroot with clay, as they had rust.
As per today March 22nd,  they all are looking good. My Chicory Witloof has got outside leaves rotting so powdered with clay and 3 days ago still had to get rid of wilting leaves, whether the rotting had started before I sprayed and needs longer to stop the process, I don’t know???

All still needs more observation for longer, but sounds good. I took a plastic jar, opened the lid and drilled holes from inside out and I just shake it. It uses a lot of clay and as I have a very cheap source for gardening…whether to put less clay would work might as well? All experimental.

Clay expert Perry A~’s note:  When preparing garden soil mix or potting soil mix, add a generous handful for pots and much more for beds and mix in well.  Plants will grow faster, healthier, with hardy blooms.  It will kick booty on sandy loam non-clay soils.  Not for acid loving plants

Testimonial About Liver Flukes 

I have been having some pain in my upper stomach all the way down to the pelvis area (clearly my gastro system).  What is interesting is that, like you said, the liquid clay will remove parasites.  Well… after several days of 2 oz 2x day and lots of distilled water with lemon, I have had at least 4 bowel movements containing clearly visible organisms that appear to be Liver Fluke parasites.  After that my pain went away.

Constipated Cat

I did as you suggested, and simply increased the amount of hydrated clay
I mixed 11 year old cats canned food. Tremendous difference! Big nicely formed
‘tootsie  rolls’ two days in a row, and no more vomit. The clay was all it
took. Her energy is way up. A wild ‘bush bunny’ racing around the house!

Stomach Ulcers and Gall Bladder

I just read the book on clay by Perry A~, even read it to my husband, who has frequent episodes of gastric distress from an ulcer. We decided to give clay a try, the next time he had a problem, I gave 2 oz. to him. His problem resolved within moments, to our great relief. Then, a few nights ago, I ate more greasy food than I should have.  I had my gall bladder removed several years, and the doctor told me to go easy on fried foods.  It’s not usually a problem, since I eat very little fried foods.  When I overdo the greasy foods (which has only happened a few times!) I can hardly move for the horrible abdominal pain.  Well, after the success with my husband, as soon as I began to feel discomfort in my lower abdominal region, I decided to try a swig of the clay solution, too, and very shortly, no more discomfort! – Jo Ann A.

Teacher Notices Change after Autistic Child’s First Detox Bath

As a parent of a child affected by autism – I will try anything (safe) to help my son. I figured I’d give clay a try. Oh my goodness – the changes have been incredible! A few days after my son’s first detox bath his teacher asked me if I gave him a “speech pill”! I’m sure you could imagine my excitement.

I personally know the cost of trying to heal a child and when you find something that works, it’s just an incredible feeling. Again I’m just so thankful I was turned onto this product. Thank you for providing help to our children!!!! Have a beautiful day! – Anna W.

Periodontal Disease

I had periodontal disease with several #8 pockets a year ago. In Oct. of 2011, I started brushing with the dry Living Clay twice a day and at night packing those areas with the clay. At my last dental check-up I now have #4 pockets and healthy gums. He also said my teeth were very nice and white!! So happy with this clay. – Cindy P.

Disc Bulge Problem in Back

I have a disc bulge in my lower back and sacroiliitis…One day I had spent five hours in the yard raking and mulching. When I came in I could barely move: sitting, standing and moving from either position were extremely painful. This is typical of my condition. I had Living Clay prepared, but hadn’t used any yet. I took two ounces and ten minutes later, the pain was GONE. I felt fine the rest of the evening. I was stiff when I woke up in the morning and took two more ounces. I had no pain the rest of the day. Typically pain like I had that evening would have lasted at least a week and may have even caused me to miss that following day of work. I am amazed at the power of this product. -Dawn S.

Constant Diarrhea

In October 2016, I started to have pretty well constant diarrhea. Saw my GP (Australian name for a non specialist MD.) and she put me on various medications with zero results.
She went on holidays and I saw another GP. She took me off all medications, to see what would happen. Went on unabated and needed a colonoscopy. Then I remembered the clay.

I started to take liquid clay, 3-4 oz, 3 times a day and used hydrated clay on relevant areas, in early February 2017. The diarrhea stopped completely in one and a half days, never to return, and it is now April! Never had the colonoscopy.

I did however have a severe detox reaction, with beetroot red swollen glands under my armpits, so I put clay packs there as well and they too are now history.

PERSONAL NOTE: The part about the swollen glands reminds me of my own experience working with clay. I did the 21 day 3 times a day protocol and started feeling painful little lumps forming under the skin in my armpits, but didn’t really equate it to the clay until I upped the dose as given in the directions when dealing with more serious/long-standing conditions and that seemed to be too much for my body to handle fairly comfortably. The lumps rose to the surface and began oozing pus, with more lumps forming as others would be getting better. 

Not a fun or comfortable experience, to say the least, especially since it was the middle of summer when armpits are more prone to get sweaty. I stopped using the clay for awhile and it actually took several months before things started easing up. But I’ve had a number of health issues and a low level infection and congested lymph for years, so I’m sure that’s part of why I had such an extreme reaction. Even with other types of cleansing and detoxing I’d done, it was like the clay was the only thing that reached things at a deeper level that had been accumulating for a long time. The one good thing is the experience showed me how truly powerful using the clay can be.

FYI, the armpits (and groin) are major areas where lymph collects, so I think that’s why I had the reaction there. But I couldn’t understand why my left armpit was affected so much more than my right one, until I happened to read somewhere that, for some reason, the body naturally has a much greater percentage of lymph nodes and activity there than on the right-side. I’d never realized that before!

Also, if you plan on using the clay for detoxing baths, I highly recommend ordering from Even Better Now for 100% pure sodium bentonite clay, which has the highest cation exchange capacity of any bathing clay tested on the market. It is hypoallergenic and contains no excipients or fillers, and is free of bacteria, viruses, molds or yeasts, and easily disperses in water, with virtually no clumping. Unlike other bathing clays, EBN® Cleansing Clay can be safely rinsed down the drain, with no drain guards or special cleaning or clay dissolving agents required. 

p. s. The above testimonials I listed are just a few I’ve received by being on Perry A’s mailing list. She no longer offers the free webinars on using clay and sold her company, but you can check out her archive of information and sign up to get on her mailing list at the bottom of the site she still hosts. She also offers a books and if you end up using her archive or getting on her list, I highly recommend donating a little something to help her defray the cost of the great wealth of information she is offering to people for free.

And speaking of healthy and delicious, here’s a recipe from blissfulbasil.com I plan to try in the next couple of days. It has gotten great reviews from people who’ve made it, so I can’t wait to see how mine turns out….

 

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Steamed sweet potatoes are mixed with oat flour, a bit of almond meal, a chia egg, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and a zesty array of spices. Then, the mixture is plopped on a pizza pan, spread into a circle, and nudged into a toasty oven. The crust puffs as it bakes, thanks to the apple cider vinegar, and the seasonings create the most wonderful aroma.
 Prep Time: 20 minutes
 Cook Time: 1 hour
 Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
 Servings 1 large pizza crust or 2 medium crusts (approximately 4 people)

Ingredients:

  • 5 1/2 cups (28 ounces) peeled and small-cubed sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
  • Pinch of chili flakes

Instructions:

  • Be sure to measure out 5 1/2 cups of sweet potato cubes (i.e., don’t estimate based on the number of potatoes). Steam the sweet potato cubes in a steamer or over the stove for 30 minutes or until fork-tender.
  • Add the chia seeds and water to a small bowl, whisk with a fork, and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes to create a chia egg.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Add the steamed sweet potatoes to a large mixing bowl and mash them.
  • Add in the chia egg, oat flour, almond meal, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, basil, oregano, garlic powder, sea salt, and chili flakes. Stir together until combined and all of the oat flour has been incorporated. The mixture should resemble a loose bread dough—sticky and damp yet slightly stretchy.
  • Line a round perforated pizza pan (i.e., vented) with parchment paper.
  • Scoop the sweet potato dough onto the lined pizza pan, and use a spatula to spread it into a large 1/4-inch-thick to 1/3-inch-thick oval or circle. This process takes 5 minutes. If needed, lightly grease the spatula with olive oil to prevent the crust from sticking.
  • Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is well set and the edges are golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  • Add desired toppings (e.g., pizza sauce, vegan parmesan, artichokes, cherry tomatoes, basil) and return the pan to the oven and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes or broil for 5 minutes, until the toppings reach desired doneness.
  • Slice and serve immediately.
  • Refrigerate leftovers* for up to 4 days.

Notes:

There tends to be some variability in baking time across kitchens, so you may need to bake up to 40 minutes to ensure the center of the crust is set. Alternatively, divide the dough into two pieces, spread each mound of dough out into a 1/4-inch-thick to 1/3-inch-thick layer on two separate pizza pans (forming two crusts), and bake each for 22 to 25 minutes, or until the edges are light golden-brown and the center of the crust is set. Then, add toppings and bake another 5 to 10 minutes.
To reheat leftovers: Preheat the oven to 400 F. Spread the leftover pizza slices onto a parchment-lined baking pan, and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until warmed through and the bottom of the slices becomes slightly crisp.

Vibes Up AgeLESS Extreme Cream Special + Oral Health + Plus Free Scalar Sessions!

 

A quick post to let you know about some great deals and free stuff!

Anyone who’s followed this blog for awhile knows what a fan I am of the Vibes Up products. Love that they are from a company it’s a pleasure to support and provide multiple benefits (help balance our bodies, off-set EMFs, add nurturing Earth energy to our environment, and more!)

Well, I found out recently they are having a wonderful special on one of my absolute favorite products…..the AgeLESS Extreme Cream. Have been using this for a number of years and when my friend from CA sent me a Vibes Up gift card last Christmas, this was the first thing I used it for, since I’d almost used up my current supply.

Read the message below from VU owner and Visionary Product Award winner Kaitlyn Keyt to discover just some of what makes this cream so unique. She playfully calls it “the lazy girls (or boys) cream,” because it does so much with so little effort on your part, which basically involves just spreading it on your skin. 🙂 And I love that it now offers even better sunscreen protection than before, AND from ALL-NATURAL sources.

VU squishy energy mats are also on special right now; these are my #1 fave, because of their versatility. I have bought a number of mats over the years in a variety of sizes and shapes and use them on a daily basis, so NOW is definitely the time to visit Vibes Up! p. s. I also highly recommend the Therapy Bears, VibeLITES, and shungite bracelets.
H
IGH-END SKIN CARE SYSTEMS can often include 5 STEPS. This cream has ALL FIVE IN ONE! SERUM, TONER, MOISTURIZER, EXFOLIANT (real crystals) and SUNSCREEN ALTERNATIVE.

Provides vibrational therapy for skin care, energy work or specific areas that need TLC!

SUNSCREEN:

EWG and others have released cautions that many kinds of sunscreens contain ingredients that are toxic, create imbalances in the body, and can cause cancer. The AgeLESS Crystal Cream NOW also contains carrot and raspberry seed extracts, which are known for their sun protection abilities that can go comparatively up to 32 SPF. Amazing how great natural products can work!

IMPORTANT:

Each person is different, so test the cream on yourself for short exposure and see how much it helps, and remember to never over-expose your skin to sun. I used it on a cruise by putting it on my arms and first tried a little exposure. When I saw how great it worked on my lily white skin, I did it again for a half day of exposure and it worked GREAT for me. Now I use it as my main source of sun protection along with bringing a thin long sleeved cover up for when the sun gets intense.

LOTION VERSION OF SUNSCREEN ALTERNATIVE:

We did a special batch of body lotion and added bigger crystals, some AgeLESS formula and natural sunscreen alternative. Details below of how we are giving 6 oz pouches of this away in the cream special.

AGING AND VIBRATIONS:

Aging has everything to do with vibrations; the lower something vibrates, the faster it deteriorates. Feel the buzz, this crystal cream raises the vibrations of you and your skin. It was nicknamed the BUZZ CREAM, because people were walking around telling others their hands were buzzing from sampling it at our expo booth. Apply to face, neck and hands, or anyplace that needs some extra good energy.

Crystal Cream is a yummy blend of actual tiny crystals, minerals, essential oils, flower essences, herbs and VibesUP’s famous liquid crystal amplifying formula that can be used for skin care, or you can even apply it to your hands/palms to bring more of Nature’s miracle vibrations into any energy work you do. You can also apply to a specific area that could use some extra TLC, such as a sore throat, knee, stiff shoulders etc.

I use to have large pores that would get clogged, etc. I recently had a facial and the lady commented on how nice and taut and clean my pores were. Yeah!!

Kaitlyn’s HAND EXPERIMENT!

Kaitlyn uses AgeLESS Crystal Cream on her face, neck, chest and ONLY left hand and no cream on the right hand. Look for differences not only in wrinkles, but age spots, veins and even color VIBRANCY. 

TRY A CRYSTAL CREAM EXPERIMENT: 
A picture is worth a 1000 words! Do  a ‘hands-on’ experiment ( yes, pun intended). Sometimes, as we achieve improvements, we forget how things were before. So I applied the Crystal Cream every morning and every evening to my face neck and chest and to the top of my left hand only. Within a couple of weeks I could see a noticeable difference.

Now, it has been several years. It always makes me happy to look at the tops of my hands and say the left hand is my skin on my face now and the right hand is how it would be if I had not used the cream.  I am 55 years old; the skin on my face is virtually wrinkle free. AND it’s not just about wrinkles… the skin color is better, more vibrant, and there are no age spots on the area of the hand I use the cream on.

Again, I apply the cream to my face, neck, chest and back of only one hand. This way I can compare the progress. Keep your eye on changes in the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, veins and even the vibrant coloring. You can look at your hands and say, THAT is how my skin WAS, and THIS is how it IS NOW with Vibrational Therapy! It’s fun to show others and watch them start to have a new perspective on how powerful the effect of vibrational energy is!

*Essential Oils and plants in this cream: Lavender, Lemon, Frankincense, Helichrysum, Geranium, Sandalwood, Ginger, Clove, Orange, Patchouli, Myrrh, Sweet Almond Oil, Raspberry Seed Extract, Carrot Seed Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Apricot Juice, Apple Fruit Extract, Evening Primrose Oil,  Organic Cranberry Fruit Extract, Organic Red Raspberry Fruit Extract, Organic Blueberry Fruit Extract, Organic White Willow Bark Extract, Organic Neem Seed Oil, Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract

Alkalizing Smoothie + Acupressure For Hay Fever And Sinuses

 

Yesterday I came across this recipe from Ross Bridgeford for what he calls his “most alkalizing smoothie.” And since I just happened to have all the ingredients, I decided to give it a try. It’s a great way to get lots of veggies and nutrients into your system in an easy to digest form….

 

This smoothie is my absolute go-to most powerfully alkaline ‘meal in a glass’. It is my #1 recommendation if you need to get the acidity out, remove inflammation, lose weight, get rid of fatigue or heal your digestion…

The combination of the powerfully alkaline greens, the healthy fats from the avocado, leaves, coconut and almonds and the incredibly-anti-inflammatory power from the turmeric and ginger…wow.

It tastes great, it takes 3 minutes to make (and 30 seconds clean up) and it will keep you going, wonderfully energized and mentally strong, clear and vital all through the day…

Core Green Alkaline Smoothie

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/2 cup filtered water or more to taste
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 2 handfuls of lettuce
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 cm turmeric
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Optional: Squeeze of fresh lemon, small handful of almonds (for extra omega 3)

Instructions:

Start by blending the avocado, cucumber, and water to form a liquid base, which makes it easier to blend everything else.

Next, add the almonds (if using), spinach, lettuce, bell pepper, tomato, ginger, and turmeric in that order. If you don’t have a high-powered blender, you might need to grate the ginger and turmeric first.

Squeeze in a little lemon for zing, and serve.

You can sign up for Ross’ newsletter and get his acid/alkaline chart, additional recipes and more at LiveEnergized.com

PERSONAL NOTE:  Of course the taste of this is going to vary somewhat depending on the type of lettuce, kind of bell pepper, and actual quantity/size of each ingredient used. I didn’t really measure anything and probably used more water than the recipe calls for, LOTS of lemon juice and I included the optional almonds, plus needed to add some crystal salt to bring it to life. It was still a little too bland for me, so I also added some black pepper, not only for taste, but to help absorb the turmeric, and some hot sauce to give it more kick. HA! Ended up drinking the whole 2 servings over a couple of hours. A great way to start off the morning and feel like you’re already ahead of the game as far as healthy nutrition!

It reminded me a little of my Green Energy Soup recipe, which is still my fave, because I’m such a mint lover and another great way to get lots of good stuff into you body. 🙂

p. s. I used a VitaMix and had no problem with liquefying everything quickly. Not sure how this would be using a regular blender. And my version didn’t turn out the bright green color of Ross’ picture, which reminds me of the green energy soup,…..definitely more “drab” looking. 🙂

 


And here’s the intro to the 9-part Human Longevity Project series that starts today……

In the coming days, you’ll be learning more about our project and our mission.

From the very start, our goal has been to challenge the status quo and change the paradigm of health care in our modern world.

As you know, we’re currently experiencing a health crisis, particularly in the Western World.

Autoimmune disease and other chronic diseases continue to rise.

So many people are feeling buried by things like depression, anxiety and fatigue.

Maybe you’ve experienced symptoms like these?

Perhaps you’re experiencing them now. These symptoms have become so common that many people have accepted them as normal. We can do better. YOU deserve better.

We embarked on a two-year journey to research why certain populations are living well into their 90s and 100s and doing so with great health, boundless energy, and profound joy. You are the reason we’ve created this documentary.

Could Good Ole Vitamin C Be The Answer to Measles, Chickenpox & Other Viral Conditions?

 

Time and time again I am amazed at how large doses of Vitamin C seem to be the answer to almost anything, With all the attention measles has been getting in the news lately, it’s good to know there could be a simple all-natural way for dealing with it…..

 

How can Western medicine ignore this natural solution for measles, chickenpox & other viral conditions??

(NaturalHealth365) With over 700 cases reported throughout the nation – and with hundreds of students and staff members currently under quarantine at two California universities – the United States is facing its worst outbreak of measles in close to 20 years.  Other contagious (viral) diseases – including mumps and chickenpox – appear to be making comebacks as well.

With the resurgence of these diseases, the need for non-toxic, inexpensive and effective therapies has never been more important.

Forward-thinking physicians and researchers have long maintained that high-dose, vitamin C therapies can help fill this bill, combating disease naturally without causing dangerous side effects. Sadly, the groundbreaking work of these pioneers has been met with skepticism by Western medicine.

Measles infects 90 percent of all unvaccinated people who are exposed

Measles, which can spread through virus-laden droplets in the air, is a highly contagious disease, with symptoms of rash, fever and sore throat typically appearing 10 to 14 days after exposure.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current measles outbreak was triggered by travelers who acquired the infection overseas, in locations as far-flung as Israel, Ukraine and the Philippines.

And, the CDC reports that 503 of the 704 diagnosed cases involve people who were not immunized against measles. (Note: According to an article in the New York Times, 76 of the individuals contracted the disease in spite of having been immunized).

Fortunately, there have been no deaths due to the current measles outbreak.  But, the real question here ought to be: how dangerous is the measles (for most people) and should we really be so terrified about our children getting this viral condition?

It should be noted that: complications of measles can include pneumonia and encephalitis (swelling and inflammation of the brain).  But, this is really quite rare and it’s important to know that there are highly effective (non-toxic) ways to deal with bacterial and viral infections. (keep reading to discover the truth.)

In fact, Jonathan Landsman, creator of NaturalHealth365 dedicated an entire online event to this topic of immunity.  Click here to discover the best ways to strengthen your immune system and protect yourself from autoimmune disorders, cancer, heart disease, dementia and even common pathogens like the flu, measles and pneumonia.

Vitamin C pioneer reports successfully treating chickenpox, mumps, measles – and more

Much of the groundwork for using vitamin C against disease has been established by the work of Dr. Frederick R. Klenner, a physician and researcher who used mega-doses of intravenous vitamin C – in the form of ascorbic acid – to treat a variety of viral diseases in the 1940s and 1950s.

In 1948, Dr. Klenner began treating polio with dosages of 1,000 to 2,000 mg of ascorbic acid – given every two to four hours for the first 24 hours, then every 4 to 6 hours for the next 48 hours.

And, the results were stunning.

All patients, Dr. Klenner reported, were “clinically well” after 72 hours.

In his book, “Injectable Vitamin C: Effective Treatment for Viral and Other Diseases,” Dr. Klenner detailed his use of intravenous vitamin C to successfully treat a wide range of illnesses – including diphtheria, shingles, polio, encephalitis, viral pneumonia and influenza.

Significantly – in regards to the resurgence of viral diseases in the United States – the list of diseases treated by Dr. Klenner with vitamin C includes chicken pox, measles and mumps.

Vitamin C fights bacterial and viral infections through multiple methods of action

Vitamin C has long been acknowledged as a potent antibiotic and antioxidant that can scavenge harmful free radicals and reduce disease-causing oxidative stress.

Research has shown that vitamin C stops the replication of viruses (their ability to multiply and spread) by interfering with viral DNA.

In addition, it stimulates the production and function of disease-fighting leukocytes, or white blood cells – enhancing their ability to engulf and destroy pathogenic bacteria.

Finally, vitamin C enhances the production of interferon, which helps prevent cells from being infected.

In a study conducted at the Riordan Clinic, scientists found that intravenous vitamin C therapy reduced viral antibody levels in patients with Epstein-Barr syndrome.  Calling vitamin C a “super-antibiotic,” the researchers noted the nutrient had a “positive effect” on disease duration.

The researchers also reported that vitamin C kills viruses and bacteria in a dose-dependent fashion – meaning the stronger the concentration of vitamin C, the higher percentage of viruses it kills.

Reinforcing the earlier observations of Dr. Klenner, the scientists concluded that vitamin C’s antiviral effect was greatest when it was introduced early in the infection.

Vitamin C yields stunning results against sepsis, slashing death rate

Sepsis, a body-wide infection, features a grim mortality rate of up to 50 percent – and kills roughly a quarter of a million people per year in the United States alone.

But, a Virginia doctor is making medical history with his use of vitamin C against the disease.

In 2016, Dr. Paul Marik tried using high-dose vitamin C, along with hydrocortisone and vitamin B-1, on a woman dying of septic shock. After her condition improved “strikingly” – leading to a full recovery – Dr. Marik went on to administer the therapy to 47 more septic patients.

Only 4 of Dr. Marik’s patients died – as opposed to 19 of 47 patients who were given standard medical treatment.

A retrospective study showed that 40 percent of conventionally-treated sepsis patients at the hospital died – while less than 10 percent of Dr. Marik’s patients succumbed to the disease.

In a later study, in fact, only one of Dr. Marik’s vitamin C-treated patients died, out of a group of 150 sepsis patients – a truly astonishing result.

Sadly, the therapeutic value of vitamin C has been dismissed by Western medicine – and by big pharma

One wonders why the news of the life-saving properties of high-dose intravenous vitamin C has met with such indifference – and resistance – from conventional medical authorities.

The answer, say natural health advocates, may be that natural therapies are incompatible with the growth and success of the powerful pharmaceutical industry.

Rather than eliminating diseases by treating their root causes, many medications merely mask symptoms. In addition, modern drugs are now being made from synthetic molecules – increasing the body’s toxic burden and creating a need for constant detoxification.

Clearly, pharmaceutical drugs can actually contribute to disease.

For example, it is not uncommon for a new drug to feature a life-threatening “side effect,” such as increased risk of cancer.  This all benefits big pharma, which rakes in huge profits from patenting new drugs. (After all, the industry needs a steady  supply of diseases to target).

Non-toxic, inexpensive and effective, high-dose vitamin C therapy should no longer be overlooked by the medical community. Hopefully, this amazing nutrient will receive its just due as an important natural weapon against viral diseases.

New Research About Heart Disease & Vitamin C

 

I know that Vitamin C is key to our health in so many ways, but this is the first time I’ve read about how important it can be to heart health. Plus, it’s alarming and mind-boggling to read how the statistics for heart disease have grown so much in a short period of time! Since they are finding that apparently 50% of the US population is now affected to some degree, I figured this was a good article to pass along…..

Almost 50 percent of Americans have some form of heart disease

Fact: 121 million adults – almost half of all Americans – currently have some type of heart disease, a figure that represents a significant increase over the last three years.

Most conventionally-trained healthcare ‘experts’ believe that the increased rate of heart disease mirrors a national epidemic of obesity, type 2 diabetes and sedentary lifestyle.  But German researcher and physician Dr. Matthias Rath maintains that this viewpoint misses the “big picture” – and that cardiovascular disease is actually an early form of the severe vitamin C deficiency known as scurvy.

To learn how Dr. Rath’s system of Cellular Medicine can help address the heart disease currently affecting every other adult in the nation, keep reading.

Alert: The majority of heart disease fatalities result from atherosclerotic plaque deposits

The report’s alarming statistics may stem in part from new standards for high blood pressure. The authors noted that millions more Americans are now considered to have heart disease, due to lowering the threshold for hypertension from 140/90 mm/hG to 130/80 mm/hG.

By the way, this new, stricter limit is one which many natural health experts have endorsed all along.

Regardless, there is no doubt that coronary heart disease is on currently on the rise.

Also known as atherosclerotic heart disease, coronary heart disease occurs when atherosclerotic plaques obstruct the arteries that supply the heart with oxygen and nutrients.

Western medicine attempts to treat heart disease with a variety of pharmaceutical medications, including beta-blockers, calcium antagonists, nitrates and cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

But these medications can feature a wide range of dangerous side effects – not to mention their crippling price tag of over $100 billion per year.

Surgical procedures, such as angioplasty and bypass surgery, may also be utilized to treat heart disease.

Despite these interventions, atherosclerotic deposits and strokes are responsible for a full 80 percent of deaths from cardiovascular disease – a staggering statistic, and one that highlights the lethal consequences of atherosclerosis.

Heart attacks and strokes are a consequence of a vitamin deficiency, medical doctor warns

To illustrate how micronutrient levels affect the cardiovascular system, Dr. Rath draws a contrast between animal and human heart health.

Most animals (with the exception of primates and guinea pigs) produce their own stores of vitamin C – and this, Dr. Rath maintains, is the reason that coronary artery disease and heart attacks are virtually unknown in the animal kingdom.

Humans, due to an evolutionary mutation, are not so fortunate – and must rely on diet for sufficient amounts of antioxidant vitamin C.

Shortages of vitamin C and other micronutrients can cause a lack of flexibility in arterial walls, leading to lesions, fissures and cracks. In an attempt to repair the problem, the body speeds lipoproteins (cholesterol and fat particles, along with calcium) to arterial walls, resulting in deposits of artery-clogging plaque.

In other words, this defensive effort by the body “backfires” – with life-threatening consequences.

When the deposits clog the coronary arteries leading to the heart, a heart attack can result. When deposits clog the arteries leading to the brain, stroke can occur.

How can Cellular Medicine help?

The Cellular Health Recommendations developed at the Dr. Rath Health Foundation – which include a regimen of vitamins, minerals and amino acids – provide vital bioenergy (cell fuel) and address the chronic deficiency of micronutrients that causes heart disease.

Specific types and amounts of micronutrients are advised, each with their own “superpower” against heart disease.

Vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene help to prevent oxidative damage to heart cells. Vitamin C also promotes production of artery-stabilizing collagen and functions as a natural blood thinner.

The amino acids lysine and proline function as a sort of natural “Teflon” for the arterial walls, helping to prevent plaque deposits from taking hold, while the mineral magnesium relaxes blood vessel walls and normalizes high blood pressure.

And CoQ10, a vitamin-like enzyme, has proven abilities to optimize the pumping action of the heart while promoting steady, regular heartbeat.  Peer-reviewed research has shown that a combination of CoQ10 and the antioxidant mineral selenium slashed the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by a whopping 40 percent.

Other beneficial micronutrients in the recommendations include vitamin B-complex, folate, vitamin D3, calcium, potassium, zinc, manganese, chromium, carnitine, cysteine, arginine and pycnogenol.

The Dr Rath Health Foundation states that – in addition to atherosclerosis – the Cellular Recommendations can benefit angina pectoris, irregular heartbeat, heart failure, diabetes and high blood pressure).

Clinical study shows impressive results

In a clinical study of patients with early coronary artery deposits published in the Journal of Applied Nutrition, researchers used Ultrafast Computed Tomography – considered the most precise form of measurement for atherosclerosis – to assess the size and growth of calcifications (or deposits).

They found that the participants’ calcification were increasing at an average rate of 44 percent per year – meaning they were almost doubling in size annually.

But following Dr. Rath’s Cellular Health Recommendations caused dramatic improvements within a year.

The growth of deposits slowed over the first six months of treatment – and virtually stopped during the second six months.

Of course, these patients were in the early stages of heart disease.

In further studies, the Foundation hopes to find out how long it takes for the vascular healing process to begin when heart disease is more advanced.

It (almost) goes without saying that big pharma, which has a vested interest in heart disease and the multi-billion dollar global drug market that accompanies it, won’t be rushing to promote the Cellular Recommendations any time soon.

Of course, you should consult your integrative doctor before beginning any supplementation. And, never adjust or eliminate prescribed heart medications unless advised to do so by your doctor.

Dr. Rath: Cellular Medicine makes it possible to save “millions of lives” – and ultimately eradicate heart disease

In addition to vitamin and mineral supplementation, the Cellular Recommendations involve lifestyle changes – such as getting sufficient aerobic exercise and maintaining healthy weight.

Note: losing as little as 5 pounds can lower your blood pressure reading by a substantial 8 points.

Eating an organic diet – rich in unprocessed fruits and vegetables and free of GMOs, synthetic pesticides and processed foods – can help you avoid the artery-clogging pitfalls of the standard American diet, appropriately abbreviated as ‘SAD.’

Finally, natural stress reduction techniques such as biofeedback, acupuncture and meditation can help protect against heart disease.  The stress hormone adrenaline has been shown to lower levels of vitamin C, which we now know is absolutely essential for heart health.

According to the AHA, the death toll from cardiovascular disease rose by 4,000 in the year 2016 alone. It’s a statistic that Dr. Rath insists can be reversed with Cellular Medicine.

“Deaths from heart attacks and strokes can be reduced to a fraction of their previous amounts,” asserts Dr. Rath.

“This (Cellular Medicine) is a major breakthrough in medicine.”
