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.

Medical Masterminds Confess

facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

One More Girl Movie imageOne More Girl is a documentary film about the Gardasil vaccine, which is claimed to prevent Human Papilloma virus. A former vice president of Pfizer (one of the biggest drug manufacturers in the world), Dr. Peter Rost, MD, told the truth, in the film, about the unholy union between the mainstream medical community and the pharmaceutical industry. Given his resume’, it’s safe to say he is an insider-expert on pharmaceutical marketing tactics.

Author of The Whistleblower, Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman, Dr. Rost is a brave whistle blower who has come clean about corrupt marketing practices used by his former employer. He also asserts that most, if not all, of the pharmaceutical companies function in much the same way.

The quotes below came from a former and a current editor-in-chief of the two most trusted and influential medical journals in the world. I include them in this blogpost, since they back up what Dr. Rost says in the video.

Dr. Marcia Angell, physician and former editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal has stated publicly that: “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Still planning to “ask your doctor”? Still willing and trust what s/he recommends about that debilitating chronic fatigue, painful fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome or even that diagnosis of cancer? Consider yourself warned!

Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of The Lancet – one of the most well-respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world – has warned those who will listen: “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

Please, friend, watch the video below as if your life depended on it. Because it does!

We must learn to think for ourselves and get help from people who see the whole picture! There are healthy ways to prevent problems like HPV.  And there are natural holistic solutions to most of the so-called “incurable” health problems that plague our society.

Chances are slim that you’ll be informed of them at your Medical Doctor’s office, however… unless there happens to be a holistic health oriented magazine sitting on the table. But that would be considered “contra-band” at many mainstream medical offices.

Effective Trauma Resolution is a Physical Affair…

facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

Lois Grasso

scary dog faceWhen you experience something overwhelmingly scary and threatening, your body generates a truckload of energy so that you can have the resources to survive. You have three possible ways to react: fight, flight (run away), or freeze. If you fight or run and get away from the threat, you have expressed the fear energy, often by turning it into anger. Doing so empowers you, by giving you the energy to fight or run for your life.

Studies show that those who successfully and actively escape a threat usually don’t develop the same degree of symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) if at all.

If, on the other hand, you realize that fighting or running will make things worse, or you try and it does make things worse, chances are you’ll then go into freeze mode and therefore experience yourself as powerless. This leads to PTSD and lots of related problems, such as anxiety disorders, depression, panic attacks, paranoia, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, chronic illness or chronic fatigue.

For example, my client Rachel’s father (see previous post) was her abuser. She was often tied down and, as a child, had no where to run afterwards — no way to sustain herself outside the family.  Her mother dismissed her complaints and made it clear she was not available to help. Rachel had no choice but to freeze and dissociate from the torture. So the energy of overwhelming fear became frozen and trapped in her body, mind and involuntary nervous system.

Like a wild animal trying to escape a small cage, this trapped energy can be very damaging to the body and mind. It can cause severe mental stress in the form of panic attacks, anxiety, depression, hyper-vigilance and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and even more severe mental illness, due to the inability to trust anyone.

Unresolved trauma can also cause physical stress and illness. In fact, I would wager that a dominant portion of all mental and physical disease in this world has its roots in unresolved trauma. I believe this is why Transformational Breathing™ and EFT are so effective. They resolve trauma at the core energetic level, underlying all physical and mental/emotional processes.

EFT and Transformational Breathing™ are body-oriented therapies that can cross the bridge between the conscious and subconscious minds, as well as allowing us to voluntarily access the involuntary nervous system.

We are moving massive amounts of energy through the meridians by tapping on acupressure points to stimulate the flow. At the same time, the deep, connected breathing pattern of Transformational Breathing™ generates a powerful circuit of energy that cleanses the body, mind and soul.

After a few minutes of Transformational Breathing™, Rachel gets into a kind of altered state, in which she shakes, trembles, punches, kicks and sometimes yells or cries uncontrollably. Many mental health practitioners would get nervous and try to calm her down, but these are natural responses to trauma. They are needed to move the stuck energy, so it can be pushed out (aka “expressed”).

As a Transformational Breath™ facilitator for 14 years, I am trained and experienced in supporting this process. It’s messy, but it works for most people and, contrary to popular fears, it does come to an end when the innermost being finds self-acceptance. Acceptance comes from me, at first, and eventually the client begins to give it to themselves.

These involuntary body movements and vocalizations are welcomed, accepted, even encouraged with my full-hearted support, appreciation, and TLC.  I like the way Dr. Levine describes this in his book, Waking The Tiger… “To move through trauma we need quietness, safety, and protection similar to that offered the bird in the gentle warmth of a child’s hands.”

Rachel often alternates between a quiet state and kicking and punch as much as her body wants to. No matter what, her feelings and expressions are honored and encouraged. Even growling, yelling and cussing are okay, as Rachel’s internal freedom to express anger slowly returns to re-empower her.

 

This natural trauma relief process is the key to pushing out (aka expressing) the chaotic, emotional dynamite of trauma, so trauma survivors can truly calm down inside. But only after being restored to their natural, self-empowered state of peace and balance.

“With this support and connection,” Dr. Levine says, “we can begin to trust and honor the natural process that will bring us to completion and wholeness, and eventually peace of mind.”

Know someone who has been traumatized in some way? Do them a favor and pass this along to them. This works for all kinds of trauma, not just sexual abuse. Of course, no one method works for everyone. But if this can work for sexual abuse, it can work for just about anything.

Why is ObamaCare such a bummer?

facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutube

It still blows my mind to think about what the current mainstream news media consider “news”. For example, I keep hearing them yack about being outraged by ObamaCare, but nobody ever seems to explain why they are so outraged!

I’m not in favor of ObamaCare, but let’s talk turkey about why, shall we?
First of all, there is the fact that forcing U.S. Citizens into a contract with any other entity is explicitly forbidden in the United States Constitution. And for good reason!  However, this “minor detail” was overlooked decades ago when auto insurance became mandatory.

For the record, I can forgive the oversight on this one, because the only requirement is “liability insurance,” which protects you and me from reckless neighbors.

When it comes to health insurance, however, the issue is not so cut and dried, because it’s my body and health I am being forced to protect.  This decision should be left to me, not the government. On the other hand, since you and I are paying for MediCare (for the poor, disabled, and in some cases “moochers”), and since there are laws requiring hospitals to care for anyone who shows up at an emergency room, regardless of ability to pay for services, there is a similarity to the auto insurance argument.

These factors shift the financial burden onto those of us who are paying the bills (via insurance premiums, co-pays and taxes). So, the way I see it, charging a $600 per year penalty to anyone who doesn’t qualify for MediCare or a hefty subsidy toward health insurance is a necessary evil.

However!!!  I resent being forced to buying-in to a system that I have no desire to use!  It’s all designed to stifle symptoms, which is counter-productive to actual health.  The current mainstream medical system is not much more than a legalized drug-pushing mafia.  They’re “pushing” dangerous and expensive drugs, surgery and decades-old technology, while investing billions in generating laws and propaganda designed to keep us Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, desperate for the next purple pill promoted on T.V.

I have many friends and clients who are holistic doctors and med students. In medical school they’re given so little (about two hours of) education on how to actually care for our bodies and minds, that it’s a joke!  It wasn’t ten years ago that I found myself arguing with my daughter’s pediatrician who refused to prescribe Probiotics after ten days on antibiotics. The doctor was clueless, and what’s worse, contended that I was clueless!

There was plenty of evidence then, and stack and stacks more now, of the importance of pro-biotics to keep the good bacteria in supply, while antibiotics killed off both good and bad bacteria in my daughter’s gut. But I didn’t have the letters “M.D.” after my name, so what I said mattered not.

But honestly, that’s not fair… even medical doctors, who go against the standard AMA accepted protocol today, are commonly hunted down for a lashing by the FDA and the mainstream drug cartel. Take Stanislav Burzinski, M.D., the dedicated cancer cure developer who was harrassed for 20 years for curing cancer – costing him millions in legal fees. Or my friend Robban Sica, a holistic M.D., who paid hundreds of thousands to defend her right to administer life-saving chelation therapy in Orange, CT. The list goes on and on.

In reality, this country does not have a “healthcare” system… It has a disease-maintenance system.  A huge segment of our economy is based on the so-called “treatment” of disease. And because it is so profitable, and so ineffective, there are actually laws against curing diseases such as cancer and other so-called incurables. It’s just business to them, friends.

Are you aware that over 225,000 people die each year due to the “proper application” of drugs and surgery? This is a statistic published in the Centers for Disease Control’s National Vital Statistics Report (July 24, 2000, Vol. 48, No. 11, p. 26). That makes mainstream medicine the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, just behind heart disease and cancer! (Here is a user-friendly website where you can easily get the breakdown of the CDC’s statistics.)

So, this is the system that we are being forced into joining. And THAT, dear friends, is the problem with ObamaCare!

More to come…
