Vitamin B3 helps to destroy super bugs

September 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Nutrition News

(NaturalHealth365) A new study indicates that nicotinamide, commonly known as vitamin B3, may be able to combat antibiotic-resistance staph infections. The research found that high doses of this vitamin increased (by 1,000 times) the ability of immune cells to kill staph bacteria.

Vitamins have the ability to alter genes expression

The study showed how high doses of vitamin B3 acts as an epigenetic modulator in that it can switch genes on and off and increases the activity of the gene to be able to ward off super bugs.

The teams behind this discovery are from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, the University of California Los Angeles and other research centers. They published this in the online Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Proper nutrition fuels a strong immune system

Through this study the investigators discovered that clinical doses of vitamin B3 improved the effectiveness of neutrophils, a particular type of white blood cells that has the ability to consume bad bacteria. Other research showed that nicotinamide had the power to turn on antimicrobial genes that would allow immune cells to eliminate bacteria.

Naturally, to lower the risk of infections, a diet rich in vitamins and minerals is essential. The fact is a nutritionally rich diet lowers the risk of becoming infected, and if a person does get a bacterial infection – proper nutrition helps the body mount an effective defense.

Good science reveals the secret to optimal health (again)

Adrian Gombart, an associated professor at Oregon State University Linus Pauling Institute described vitamin B3 as, “a way to tap into the power of the innate immune system and stimulate it to provide a more powerful and natural immune response”.

Though the study looked at very high doses – it still points to the fact that our immune system depend on what we give it nutritionally. Antibiotics deplete vitamin B3 – making it easier for any infection to develop resistance to drugs.

How did we create “super bugs”?

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a strain of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to the antibiotics commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.

A decade ago, Gombart discovered that a mutation of a gene in humans makes some people more vulnerable to bacterial infection. Working on this problem led to the finding that vitamin B3 can switch on some of the disabled anti-microbial genes giving the immune cells a greater capacity to deal with infectious bacteria.

Get back to nature for a full recovery

When confronted with MRSA we need medical care, on the other hand we must arm ourselves before we encounter it with a strong immune system. Even while under medical care – we have to use nature to ultimately defeat the climate that helped create the condition – which will ultimately improve the effectiveness of therapy and restore our health.

You may want to consider adding a vitamin B complex to your supplement routine by purchasing a trusted brand – online or at your local health food store. In addition, vitamin B3 can be found in whole wheat bran, brown rice, fish including anchovies and halibut, sun dried tomatoes, turnips, carrot tops, beets, sunflower seeds, almonds and mushrooms.

Colostrum contains super health benefits

(NaturalHealth365) Colostrum is the first food of life – naturally designed to maintain health and prevent disease. This is a baby’s first food and as such is incredibly effective at keeping a baby healthy while providing the foundation for growth. Sadly, most people (including health professionals) have never been taught its health benefits.

Colostrum is the secretion from the mammary glands before a mothers milk starts to flow. It is provided in the first 24 to 48 hours, and provides essential nutrients for the immune system. Bovine colostrum is biologically transferable to all mammals – including man. It even has identical factors to those of human colostrum and is actually many times richer in immune factors.

How to bring your body back to life

One of the primary functions of colostrum is gut health. The health of our gastrointestinal tract which consists of the mouth, esophagus, stomach and the intestines is essential to preventing disease. The gut has also been called our “second brain” and digestive issues are usually the source of most physical dis-eases.

We don’t need to look further than the gut when looking to alleviate most illnesses. Gut health is thought of in terms of diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, heartburn, and other GI problems. Unfortunately, we tend to ignore intestinal health when looking at conditions that seem unrelated such as: food allergies, autoimmune disorders, Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis.

A healthy digestive system is your first line of (disease) defense

When the bacteria in the gut are out of balance, dysbiosis is one of the consequences. In other words, the proportion of beneficial bacteria is out numbered by harmful bacteria – which leads the way to a “leaky gut”. Don’t ignore digestive disorders – look for a qualified, naturopathic physician to help you heal the gut.

Leaky gut is when the permeability of the gut lining increases so that toxins and pathogens (normally held in check) pass though the gut lining – moving freely throughout the body. The intestines now become the gateway to freedom for every type of bacteria, fungus and toxin – causing fatigue, brain fog plus many other chronic health problems.

Boost immunity with nature’s first food

Leaky gut can be devastating and the effects can last a lifetime. Colostrum has a cornucopia of essential immune boosting substances known to help heal leaky gut. There is a reason it’s the first feeding for a human being. Thankfully, breast feeding is making a popular comeback and will certainly help future generation – providing mothers keep their body healthy and strong.

In the book Colostrum, Life’s First Food, Dr. Daniel G. Clark’s message is loud and clear – bovine colostrum “rebuilds the immune system, destroys viruses, bacteria, and fungi, and accelerates healing of all body tissue, while helping with weight loss and builds lean muscle, while slowing down and reversing aging.”

According to Clark and the well-known naturopathic physician Dr. Bernard Jensen, colostrum plays a therapeutic role in AIDS, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, allergies, herpes, bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, gingivitis, colds and flu.

Is your diet filled with “superfood” nutrition?

Bovine colostrum is not for everyone – especially vegans. Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to choose what’s best for them. And, naturally, there are many other ways to rebuild the health of the colon such as, eating fermented foods; supplementing with prebiotics or probiotics and minimizing the use of antibiotics.

Keep in mind, the best quality colostrum comes from healthy cows that roam on chemical-free pastures without hormones or antibiotics. The processing has to be done without the use of high temperatures and pasteurization. And, powdered colostrum is more concentrated than its liquid form with a longer shelf life.

Did you know that conventional doctors once used colostrum for its antibiotic effects before the introduction of penicillin? Are you using colostrum? Post your health recovery story below.

Don’t become a victim of cancer industry mythology

Conventionally speaking, people have been brainwashed to believe that cancer is a mysterious disease randomly created amongst our cells. Another deceptive idea is that cancer can only be treated with surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. And, of course, the fear of cancer can be crippling since we have been led to believe that our only hope is a highly-skilled physician (or surgeon) to provide that “magic bullet” – which leaves us feeling powerless and uncertain about our future.

Can’t we do anything to help ourselves? Naturally, the answer is yes! Today, many medical doctors understand that cancerous cells develop due to several genetic and biochemical abnormalities. Cancer can not be effectively treated locally – when it’s a systemic health crisis.

Decrease your risk for cancer

It’s always good to learn from the experts. Cancer specialist, Thomas Lodi, M.D. says, “cancer is not “the enemy,” but rather the consequence of continued violations of natural laws. Health is the consequence of healthy living!” Dr. Lodi initially may help cancer patients with Insulin Potentiation Therapy; gene therapy; immunotherapy (plus much more) but the main thing his patients learn is how to stop developing cancer.

Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. helps his patients kill cancer cells with a 3-step approach of diet, supplementation and detoxification. Without the use of drugs or radiation, Dr. Gonzalez offers individualized protocols utilizing organic, whole foods; pancreatic enzymes and coffee enemas to rid the body of toxic waste.

Colostrum reverses aging

March 13, 2012 by  
Filed under Natural Healing, Nutrition News

(NaturalHealth365) Colostrum is life’s first food for infants; it’s produced by the mother’s mammary glands during the first 24-48 hours after giving birth. This is a non-milk fluid, which contains powerful immune enhancers and growth factors for the healthy growth of the baby.

Colostrum may be the ultimate ant-aging supplement according to the newest research, which reveals how colostrum prevents wrinkles, increases fat metabolism, improves memory, elevates mood, and builds lean muscle mass.

Bovine Colostrum Advantages

Bovine colostrum from pasture-fed cows contain immunoglobulins specific to many human pathogens. Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was used as a way to fight infections. Albert Sabin made the first oral vaccine against polio, from the immunoglobulin taken from bovine colostrum.

Right after puberty and in cases of illness these immune factors decline and only colostrum has been shown to work on replacing the supply. Bovine colostrum from dairy cows has been shown to not only be safe for humans, but is transferable to humans.

The research discoveries point to fact that this may be the fountain of youth, with the lure of radiant skin, firm muscles, a lean body, and the appeal of looking ageless, this supplement may be the face of the future.

Staying Young

Bovine colostrum is rich in powerful growth factors such as; insulin like growth factor, transforming growth factor (TGF) and epithelial growth factor (EGF). These are considered the natural growth factors which when plentiful slow down the aging on a cellular lever, and when deficient accelerate the aging process.

Colostrum has been shown to have a cumulative effect, the longer it is used the more regeneration and rebuilding that occurs. In many studies the reason for abdominal weight, lower immunity, loss of muscle, and wrinkles are the declining levels of growth hormones.

Planning for longevity means more than anything staying healthy, and avoiding the common conditions associated with aging such as lower immunity to viruses and disease, compromised organ function and decreased vitality.

Americans tend to think of longevity as something, which can be aided by pharmaceuticals, implants, cosmetic surgery, joint replacement and cardiac procedures. Longevity isn’t something you can outsource.

Stem Cells strongest link to longevity

Scientists have found that the growth factors in colostrum help activate stem cells, which are the key to the regeneration process. Colostrum has been shown to rebuild heart muscle, lung tissue, and cartilage and regenerate the thymus gland. Restoring the thymus gland to its youthful appearance is one of the keys to immunity.

Colostrum processes the natural longevity partners. These include immunoglobulin, which are antibodies that can neutralize toxins and microbes in the lymph and circulatory systems.

Lactoferrin is another powerful antiviral and antibacterial substance in bovine and human colostrum, which boosts T-cell activity and is responsible for cell to cell communications.

A study published in “Clinical and Applied Thrombosis/Hemostasis” found that oral colostrum is a preventive agent against the flu. The study concluded that colostrum supplementation was three times more effective for flu prevention than vaccination.

Healing miracles sometimes are just simply the results of the right products at the right times.

Invincible Health on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour

(NaturalHealth365) Do you think we (humans) will thrive or become extinct – in the near future? The NaturalNews Talk Hour presents Invincible Health with our special guest Daniel Vitalis. Discover the health challenges facing us and learn how to protect ourselves from radiation fallout, GMO’s plus much more!

“Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. You are a great host.” – Cheryl M.

A Threat to Our Health

According to the American Cancer Society, “Ionizing radiation is a proven human carcinogen (cancer causing agent).” Most medical tests using gamma or x-rays and our exposure to the nuclear disaster of Fukushima are examples of ionizing radiation. These high-frequencies have enough energy to remove an electron from (ionize) an atom or molecule – and damage the DNA in our cells.

Fortunately, there are many things we can do to protect ourselves from cancer-causing radiation. According to Dr. Mark Sircus, “magnesium oil remains the number one item in my cancer protocol and thus number one for radiation exposure.” If you want to avoid radiation poisoning – don’t become mineral deficient. Our next program will talk about how to (naturally) protect ourselves from the dangers of radiation fallout.

GMO Insanity

“Any scientist who tells you they know that GMOs are safe and not to worry about it, is either ignorant of the history of science or is deliberately lying. Nobody knows what the long-term effect will be.” – Geneticist, David Suzuki, giving the 2008 Commonwealth Lecture in London

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is a very real risk of out-crossing, which refers to the transfer of engineered genes (transgenes) from genetically modified crops to conventional, cultivated plants or to related crop species in the wild. This may happen by means of wind, insect pollination, or other transfer.

This week, the NaturalNews Talk Hour speaks to Daniel Vitalis about where we find GMO’s (besides food) and how to protect ourselves.
