“I Can Make Diseases Disappear”…

…says the honest medical doctor featured in this enlightening TEDx Talk. Like every other medical doctor, Dr. Rangan Chatterjee was trained in medical school to prescribe medications. But after his own infant daughter nearly died from an extreme deficiency in calcium and vitamin D, he realized his education was not complete and decided to get fully educated. Medications only suppress symptoms, while letting the cause of chronic disease go untreated thus causing more problems. If that’s enough to motivate you to start watching this excellent video, go ahead. If not, please read my summary below and then decide.

Chronic disease disappears when we find and eliminate the underlying cause.

Summary: Medications can be lifesavers for acute illnesses, like pneumonia, bronchitis, infections, etc. However chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, IBS, acid reflux, GERD, and heart disease, all can be caused by a variety of different underlying issues. Like Naturopathic doctors, Dr. Chatterjee, has learned how to identify and treat the cause of chronic illness.

He understands that even so-called psychological disorders aka mental illness – anxiety disorder, depression, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), ADHD, cognitive decline, dementia, Alzheimers, and more – all can be reversed at the cause level. But the causes can be different for different individuals, and this takes time and diligence to achieve. Most medical doctors can only allow 7.5 minutes per patient visit!

Chemical imbalances start with processed junk food, shallow breathing and chronic “fight or flight”.

Here’s one example of a cause that is not discussed in the video. Psychological problems, such as depression and anxiety, are usually considered by doctors to be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. When you’re trained to prescribe drugs (chemicals) it is easy to forget that there must be a root cause for the imbalanced brain chemistry!

One recently discovered cause begins with the balance of bacteria in the gut (aka “the microbiome”), which Dr. Chatterjee does touch on in the video. I won’t bore you with all the details, but a chain of reactions to that bacteria imbalance leads to a “loosening” of the blood brain barrier. The brain is no longer protected from all the stuff in the blood that doesn’t belong in the brain! The beginning of that chain reaction? Decisions you make about what you do and don’t put in your mouth.

Okay, but why do some people LOVE eating foods like organic kale, broccoli, fermented foods and gluten free foods, while others find it disgusting or impossible?  Sliding down the “rabbit hole” a bit further, we find the culprit: emotional and spiritual imbalances.  Yet even these “causes” stem from deep-seated beliefs held secretly in the subconscious mind. Don’t believe me? Click here to discover a common belief (aka “conditioned response”) that literally deprives the brain of oxygen when it’s needed most. And if you agree that “crying is a sign of weakness,” you really need to click here!

Cure chronic mental illness and physical disease

Nutrition is key for body and brain health.

Like me, Dr. Chatterjee looks for nutritional imbalances, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, microbiome imbalances of gut bacteria, as well as emotional stress and chronic inflammation. I also work with Transformational Breath, EFT Tapping, and Reverse Therapy.

Then we work together to bring your body, mind, emotions and spirit into balance and… voila! Disease disappears.

Take a listen to the video if you haven’t already. It’s 18 minutes well spent.

Alzheimers Reversed Naturally

UCLA Study: Alzheimers responds to natural treatment

UCLA Study: natural treatment for Alzheimers

Western medical doctors still have no effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, even though it was recognized over 100 years ago. But UCLA researchers are now reversing memory loss for the first time. They’ve developed a program that incorporates many of the natural approaches to health that I’ve been teaching – and coaching clients to adopt – since 2002.

In a newscast on ABC News 7 and an article featured on the station’s website, Denise Dador says: “It’s not a drug; it’s not a procedure; it is a novel, comprehensive and personal approach to treating memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s.” Articles have since surfaced on many reputable news sites including Huffington Post.

I find it interesting that the healthy lifestyle you are about to discover (if you remember to watch the video below ;>) is considered “novel” by this news reporter.  Watch the video to see exactly what can be done to reverse what Alzheimer’s does to the brain.

It’s a complex disease. In the report from UCLA’s Dr. Dale E. Bredesen, he explains that Alzheimer’s is affected by sleep, diet, even exercise. “These — and other things — all contribute to this critical balance in plasticity,” says Bredesen.

Ten patients with memory-loss participated in the small UCLA trial , “MEND” , which stands for Metabolic Enhancement for NeuroDegeneration. Some of the patients had patterns of Alzheimer’s that were confirmed by brain-scans. For a more in-depth (but not too technical) look at the study, click here.

In the UCLA protocol, significant lifestyle changes had to be made by patients. They were told to avoid simple carbs (like white bread, white rice, sugary foods, etc). They were also told to eat only gluten-free foods and avoid processed foods. They also increased their consumption of fish, took yoga classes and meditated regularly. Additional instructions included taking melatonin at bed time and to get adequate sleep. And they added significant doses of vitamin B-12, D-3 and fish oil to their daily regimen.

Six months later, nine of the ten patients had a noticeable improvement in memory. Only one patient, in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, did not improve. UCLA researchers say the findings suggest, at least early on, that changing a person’s metabolic processes can bring back memory and cognitive function.

Prior to the study, six of the subjects had been forced to discontinue working due to the ailment. However, after benefiting from the new lifestyle adopted during the study, they were able to return to their jobs. Study authors say some patients were followed up to 2.5 years and the improvements remained.

Plans are underway to do larger studies on this therapeutic program. For those who cannot wait and are willing and able to make significant changes in their lives, I am available as a coach via online conferencing as well as in person in East Hartford, CT.
