The Greatest Nutritional Deficiency in America: Vitamin B-Complex

One of the most common nutritional deficiencies and most commonly misdiagnosed problems in America is B-COMPLEX DEFICIENCY SYNDROME (BCDS). Since most doctors feel either that vitamin deficiencies are a lot of bunk, or that “enriched” processed foods fill nutritional voids, a lot of bogus diagnoses are given to people suffering from a simple deficiency of B vitamins.
Some of the bogus diagnosis and symptoms include:

Hypoglycemia (*more on this later.)
Candida
PMS
Depression
Neuritis (inflammation of the nerves which cause pain)
Weakness and fatigue
Indigestion
IBS
Poor appetite
Sugar cravings
Muscular pain and soreness
Headaches
Insomnia
Dizziness
Nervousness, anxiety
Instability
Forgetfulness
Fearfulness
Rage
Hostility
Sound serious? When you consider all the possible different diagnoses and drug therapies for each symptom listed is downright horrifying.

*To an individual who has problems handling sugar, refined sugar is equivalent to a poison! A list of symptoms accompanying hypoglycemia is impressive. Apprehension, depression, inability to concentrate, cravings for sweets and chocolate, ADD, dizziness, crying spells, mental cloudiness, unrealistic fears, worry, sleepiness, insomnia, double vision, low reflex response, chronic fatigue, pain.

It is not easy to get real B vitamins in the American diet. The riches source of these vitamins is Brewer’s yeast (not exactly a staple of the average American’s diet). Other rich sources include liver, animal foods and whole grain cereal.

As for the cereal, do not get too excited. No amount of synthetic B-vitamins added, enriched or fortified to food will substitute for the real B-complex found in nature. The only cereals that contain the true B-complex vitamins are the all-natural whole grain cereals that most people do not eat.

When you strip a grain of all its nutrition, make it into white bread or commercial cereal, and add a few synthetic nutrients like thiamine hydrochloride, it is still a nutritionally counterfeit food, no matter what the medical-drug-food-dairy-chemical distributors (of misinformation and lies) tell you. If “enriched” foods, which are consumed by the tons, were truly enriched by the added synthetics, BCDS, and all the health problems associated with it, would not exist.

“Since we obtain vitamin B12 only from animal foods in our diet, deficiencies tend to develop among strict vegetarians, especially vegan children, who eat no animal products. However, the elderly, and those who are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from the intestinal tract are also at risk, as well as those who are pregnant or who suffer hemorrhage or intestinal disorders (Dr. Weil).”

When you suffer from B-vitamin deficiency over a long period of time, undue stress is placed upon the glands that provide you the ability to cope with stress–the Adrenal Glands. As long as the adrenal glands can put out sufficient adrenal hormone, you will survive BCDS. But when adrenal function can no longer compensate, the symptoms will slowly creep up and if ignored, can turn into a chronic health condition.

Weakening adrenal functioning in the face of starvation for B-vitamins causes about half of all the low back pain in America. Continued weakening of adrenal leads to heart problems, even heart attacks. And when adrenal function nears the critical stage, nervous exhaustion occurs, with the potential of a full-blown nervous breakdown.

You court disaster by treating conditions like hypoglycemia, candida, PMS and other conditions with drugs or bizarre diets. Instead, alter your diet to include foods rich in B-vitamins. If foods are not enough, get a food natural vitamin B complex supplement such as Biotics Research Bio-3B-G (3-6 tablets daily).

The most common complaints of people suffering from BCDS (especially women) are depression and the tendency to cry easily. The next most classical symptom of BCDS is a constant feeling that something dreadful is about to happen.

If you start a nutritional supplement program, be alerted that after a few days to a week on the program, unusual or increased fatigue or even exhaustion is not uncommon. This increased fatigue results from repair mechanisms within the body, and is proof that the program is working. The increased fatigue is typically short-lived.

Within 30 days, you will begin feeling much better. But it can take some people longer than others. If you have already advanced to the stage of having severe symptoms, it may take several months or even longer than a year to completely recover.

“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.” V Hugo

Truly, honey is a superfood, a nectarian delight and an effective healing agent all in one. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, lots of carbohydrates in the form of sugars and even some amino acids. So sweet is it that, taken together, its unique combination of fructose and glucose makes it sweeter than table sugar.

When you have a moment, hold up a clear jar of honey up in the sunlight and see the golden nectar for what it is. Its amber color reflects much of the sun’s energy which was utilized in its process of creation.

Ayurveda honey is considered one of the most effective natural delivery systems for the therapeutic administration of herbal preparations and other remedies.

As in all healing systems throughout the world, there is much subtlety and nuance associated with every healing agent “under the sun”. By that we mean that a single food or herb or spice has different healing qualities associated with it depending on it’s source, its specific type, ripeness, exact time of being picked or harvested, what kind of ground it is grown in, among several other determinants.

SOURCE: Magpie Paperworks

In the case of honey there are additional differences which are even more subtle, but no less important in distinguishing one healing application from another. By way of illustration, here is a list of the eight different types of honey identified within Ayurveda which can be found at the website linked below:

Types of Honey:

Eight types of honey are described in ayurveda depending on the type of bee which collects it. They are Pouttika, Bhramara, Kshoudra, Makshika, Chatra, Arghya, Oudalaka, Dala.

Pouttika – This honey is collected by very large bees from the nectar of poisonous flowers. It increases vata, causes gout and burning sensation in chest. It is also sedative and reduces fat.

Bhramara – This honey is collected by large bees and sticky in nature.

Kshoudra – (Honey collected by medium-sized honey bees) light and cold in nature. Dissolves Kapha.

Makshika – (Honey collected by small honey bees) very light and dry natured. Useful in VataKapha diseases and kapha diseases.

Chatra – Heavy and cold in nature useful in gout, Leucoderma (Shwitra).

Arghya – Good for eyes but causes arthritis.

Oudalaka – Useful in skin diseases, and helps in modulation of voice.

Dala – Dry and reduces vomiting.

Amongst all the above “Makshika” is considered as the best type with immense medicinal properties. {SOURCE: “Therapeutic uses of Honey in Ayurveda” by Dr. Krishna.R.S at Pioneer Thinking}

Without delving into the ayurvedic nomenclature we can quickly see just how important this expanded understanding may be for those using honey medicinally on a regular basis, as well as for those who eat a lot in their regular diet.

According to Ayurveda, honey possesses many useful medicinal properties which are not well unknown, except among the many practitioners of this ancient system of health and wellness. What follows is just a short list of some of honey’s more common usages which can be found at the same website:

Some Health Benefits of Honey: a. Honey is very good for eyes and eye sight.

b. It quenches thirst.

c. Dissolves kapha.

d. Reduces effects of poison.

e. Stops hiccups.

f. It is very useful in urinary tract disorders, worm infestations, bronchial asthma, cough, diarrhea and nausea, vomiting.

g. Cleanse the wounds.

h. It heals wounds.

i. Helps in quick healing of deep wounds.

j. Initiates growth of healthy granulation tissue.

k. Honey which is newly collected from bee hive increases body weight and is a mild laxative.

l. Honey which is stored and is old helps in metabolism of fat and scrapes Kapha. {SOURCE: “Therapeutic uses of Honey in Ayurveda” by Dr. Krishna.R.S at Pioneer Thinking}

One of the most significant aspects of this superfood is its identification as Yogavahi. This very special quality makes it such a great delivery system as previously stated. The highly valued therapeutic medicinal qualities of those herbs and spices, with which honey is combined, have much more efficacy in producing the desired result. The Ayurvedic texts also tell us that: “The substance which has a quality of penetrating the deepest tissue is called asYogavahi. When honey is used with other herbal preparations it enhances the medicinal qualities of those preparations and also helps them to reach the deeper tissues.”[1]

Now we come too a critical topic which very few in Western society are aware of. There are several precautions which have been issued by those who profoundly understand the nature of honey and how it must be taken. For instance The Health Coach has always been careful never to heat honey because it turns it toxic. In fact significant peroxides are produced when honey is cooked. Also, other toxic byproducts, which serve to increase the total body burden (toxic load) for those who consume cooked honey on a regular basis, are created. See the research study below:

Here are 5 important precautions which should always be observed in your own kitchen: a. Honey should not be mixed with hot foods. b. Honey should not be heated. c. Honey should not be consumed when you are working in hot environment where you are exposed to more heat. d. Honey should never be mixed with rain water, hot and spicy foods, and fermented beverages like whisky, rum, brandy etc, ghee and mustard. e. Honey includes nectar of various flowers of which some may be poisonous. Poison has hot or Ushna qualities. When honey is mixed with hot and spicy foods the poisonous properties get enhanced and cause imbalance of doshas. {SOURCE: “Therapeutic uses of Honey in Ayurveda” by Dr. Krishna.R.S at Pioneer Thinking}

The Health Coach, being a lifelong sweetaholic, always noticed a definite set of symptoms whenever he ate cooked, baked or heated honey, which is every honey brand you will find at the local supermarket as well as most of the brands found at health food stores. After consumption of even a little amount over a period of time, he quickly realized that something was very wrong and then he came upon the heated honey precaution with his study of Ayurveda. Everything changed immediately when he started eating truly raw honey.

Be aware, however, that some apiaries claim to be raw but are not. Only a call to the local beekeeper will verify that no heating is used anywhere in the process from hive to the store shelf.

Let’s again refer to our great website reference to see how honey can be used for making quick and easy home remedies:

A Few Home Remedies with Honey

a. Mix 2 teaspoons of honey with carrot juice and consume regularly. This helps to improve eyesight and is very helpful for those who sit in front of computers for long hours.

b. In cold, cough and congested chest, mix 2 teaspoons of honey with equal quantity of ginger juice which should be consumed frequently.

c. A mixture of black pepper powder, honey and ginger juice in equal quantities, when consumed thrice daily helps to relieve the symptoms of asthma.

d. Regular use of one teaspoon of garlic juice mixed with two teaspoons of honey will help to control blood pressure.

e. One glass of warm water taken with two teaspoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice in early morning reduces fat and purifies blood.

Consuming one spoon of honey daily help us to lead a healthy long life.

{SOURCE: “Therapeutic uses of Honey in Ayurveda” by Dr. Krishna.R.S at Pioneer Thinking}

Very Helpful To Those Who Suffer From Seasonal Allergies: Especially for those who suffer from seasonal pollen allergies, wildflower honey can serve as a GREAT long term remedy. By consuming even very small amounts of locally harvested honey, the human body becomes ‘inoculated’ against the very pollen allergens which trigger the allergic response. This form of ‘self-immunization’ is very similar to the homeopathic concept of “like heals like”. According to this Law of Similars, “by using drugs to induce symptoms, the artificial symptoms would stimulate the vital force, causing it to neutralise and expel the original disease and that this artificial disturbance would naturally subside when the dosing ceased.”[2}

In conclusion: The best honey which is fit for healthy consumption is honey that is raw, organic, locally harvested and never heated in the process of transfering from honeycomb to glass jar (not plastic). Using it medicinally for those who do not have sugar or weight problems is really the best, since there is nothing else quite like it as an efficacious delivery system. The honey bees works very hard to create such a nectarean substance; perhaps we can now acknowledge their contribution to global wellness.

May you enjoy great health!

When life gives you lemons…

make 100 home remedies to improve your health

 

 

 

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade and dozens of other foods and home remedies from this versatile fruit. Lemon’s health benefits are due to the high concentration of vitamins B and C, antioxidants, protein, flavonoids, phosphorus, potassium, carbohydrates and volatile oils. Whether you’re using this superfood to prevent kidney stones or making lemon-flavored cake icing, you’ll reap the benefits in flavor and good health.

Lemon juice was used in ancient Egypt to undo the effects of food poisoning; and in India, Ayurvedic practitioners prescribed lemon peel to treat liver ailments. The Sicilians used lemon peel to make pickling brine and multiple cultures used it to prevent scurvy. Both the peel and juice of lemons are still widely used today to cleanse and tonify the liver.

Lemon juice

Lemon juice possesses antibacterial, antiviral and immune-building properties. It fights disease and infection with high levels of bioflavonoids, pectin, limonene, citric acid, magnesium, calcium and vitamins. It stimulates digestion, promoting weight loss.

Is AIDS the End to All Disease?

THE STRECKER MEMORANDUM

“The Strecker Memorandum is a 96 minute Video Tape and one of the most controversial video tapes you will ever see. Robert B. Strecker M.D. PhD, presents with document evidence the Truth about AIDS being a Man-Made Disease. In his video he lectures how the AIDS Virus was Predicted, Requested, Created and introduced into human population through Medical Injection Programs. Dr. Strecker practices Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology in Los Angeles as a trained pathologist, with a PhD in Pharmacology.

Basically, the report states that the government created AIDS and infected us in order to kill off some of the population and for financial reasons. The HMOs have made a lot of money off AIDS as has the medical community.

I am typically not one to spread fear. However, I think it is beyond important to understand what the government is doing. The good news is that they do now have a cure for AIDS.

Further, in Cracking the Bible Codes, by Jeffrey Satinover (The bible codes have been described as a method by which specific letters from the text can be selected to reveal an otherwise obscured message), the words, “the end to all disease” appeared when they ran the word AIDS into the code.

Doctors are finding now that even when babies are born with the AIDS virus, they are not sick and that their immune systems are about 3000 times stronger than a normal human. It appears that human DNA has made “Darwin” type of advancements in order for humankind to survive the AIDS virus. In essence, to ensure survival of AIDS, the human immune system is becoming so strong that disease can no longer exist.

Do You Wash Your Face with Anti-freeze ?

Would you rub anti-freeze all over your face? Would you drink a glass of anti-freeze? How about putting a little engine degreaser on your hair? If you are using many of the over-the-counter face wash, cosmetics or shampoos, you probable are. Two of the three ingredients in anti-freeze are glycol based. Glycol and its derivatives are in most skin care and personal care products today.

Take a look for yourself. Grab a bottle of shampoo, lotion, soap or face cleanser. Look for the entire family of glycols: Polyethylene Glycol (PG), Butylene Glycol (BG), Polyethylene Glycol (PEG), and Ethylene Glycol (EG). These are all petroleum derivatives that act as solvents (think engine degreaser) and they easily penetrate the skin so quickly that the EPA wants factory workers to avoid skin contact, to prevent brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities.

You eat what you put on your skin

Your skin is the largest organ of the body. More than 60% of whatever you put on your skin gets directly absorbed into your body within minutes. It then enters your bloodstream and eventually becomes part of your body tissues. In this sense, you are slowly eating whatever you put on your skin. If it goes on your skin, it winds up in your body.

Many of the products we put on our skin, like lotions, deodorants, shaving creams, cosmetics, insect repellents, sunscreens, colognes, and perfumes are so poisonous that if you put them in your mouth you would immediately become very ill or possible even die!

Many companies use the same ingredients from 60 years ago. Manufacturers continue to use them because they are inexpensive to produce. Many of the manufacturers wield a great deal of pressure and influence on the FDA through lobbyist and politicians in order to keep their original formulations and keep profits high.

Here is a list of some other ingredients to avoid (there are plenty more):

Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Petrolatum, Parabens, Phenol Carbolic Acid, Acrylamide, Sodium Laurel, Laurel Sulfate, Toluene, Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Dioxane

What to do?

Buy products (shampoos, soap, shaving cream, deodorant, lotions, perfumes, mouthwash, lip balm, etc.) that are organic and include all natural ingredients. What kind of nutrients would you like to have inside your body? Then put those same ingredients on your skin. For example, a single leaf of Aloe Vera contains at least 75 nutrients, 200 active compounds, 12 unique minerals 20 of 22 necessary amino acids and 12 different vitamins.

Some other powerful plants include: Lavender, chamomile, rosemary, lemon, witch hazel, Saint John’s Wort , Anthyllis flower, bryophyllum, calendula flower, and Grape skins & seeds which are all used to clean and/or treat acne, rosacea, dermatitis, dryness, inflammation, skin rashes, anti-aging, healing wounds, sunburn, firmness, etc.
