McDonalds = McDiabetes

Startling Statistics:

Rates of Stroke, Diabetes, Heart Disease and Childhood Obesity were found to be 70% higher in neighborhoods the closest to a fast food outlet.

Our children are being subjected to a highly sophisticated, mass-marketing campaign to eat more and more junk-food.

The implications are terrifying:

  • declining educational performance & learning disabilities
  • mental disorders like attention deficit syndrome now at epidemic proportions
  • massive instances of obesity, leukemia, cancer, diabetes and heart disease

All are evidence of a massive decline in our children’s health and well being.  And violence on a scale unheard of in my childhood is now totally commonplace in our schools.

But how do you as a parent cope?

CRACKED: The Vitamin D-Vinci Code

This is world breaking news, literally hot off the news wires. When you study all this, it reads like a Dan Brown “DaVinci Code” novel. Except this story is true, not fiction.

For ages now, scientists have been baffled by the invisible power of Vitamin D-3 on the immune system. Particularly on diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Parkinson’s and worst of all, Cancer.

How did the presence of Vitamin D-3 have such profound power in defeating these diseases without drug intervention?

Read every word of this HEALTH ALERT. Here is the answer and it is just incredible evidence once again of the power of Vitamin D-3 on any disease.

Vitamin D is vital in activating human defences and low levels suffered by around half the world’s population, may mean their immune systems’ killer T cells are poor at fighting infection, scientists said on Sunday March 7th, 2010.

Make a note of this momentous date in natural medicine history.

Scientists find why Vitamin D, the “Sunshine Vitamin“, is Crucial

The findings by Danish researchers could help the fight against infectious diseases and global epidemics, they said, and could be particularly useful in the search for new vaccines.

The researchers found that immune systems’ killer cells, known as “T cells”, rely on Vitamin D to become active and remain dormant and unaware of the possibility of threat from an infection or pathogen if vitamin D is lacking in the blood.

My Spine was Crumbling Apart

Stephen Jones

A lot of skeptics say that natural medicine is all make-believe and fancy “placebo effect” science.

Watch this video by Stephen Jones, a young man’s fight to overcome chronic back pain, and tell everyone you know to watch it, and together we will refute the critics once and for all.

After the doctors told him he had degenerative disc disease and arthritis in his lower back and that there was nothing that could be done and it would only get worse with time, Stephen decided to give our Bone Density formula and special ‘Meals that Heal’ recipes a try.

After all, what did he have to lose but the pain?

In just three months, he felt like a new man – and better than he had in 10 years!

Dr. Garland’s comments:
“It is estimated that over 60% of America suffers bone degeneration. Osteoporosis in particular is nearly epidemic.   Drugs are useless in fighting this and the side effects from hastily approved and rushed to market drugs like Vioxx and Celebrex are downright dangerous!

If you suffer from pain in your bones, whether it be in your back, knees or hands, have arthritis or are concerned about osteoporosis, contact me for a personal consultation and soon we will be sharing your story of recovery with the world.

This is the miracle of Contagious Health!

Metabolic Cardiology: Rocket Fuel for Your Heart

February was American Heart Month but we think this subject is so vital that we are carrying it over to March.

Heart Disease remains America’s #1 Killer, and no matter how many fancy drugs Big Pharma throws at the problem, it keeps getting worse.

This special interview, with Dr. Stephen Sinata, a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and former Chief of Cardiology at Manchester Memorial Hospital, just might change what many have always thought about heart health.

More importantly, it could save your life!”

Good Heart Sense: An Interview with Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra

Lindsay Wilson: You are a board certified cardiologist, but your approach to cardiovascular health is not entirely conventional. You practice something you call “metabolic cardiology.” Can you explain what that is?

About Dr. Sinatra
Stephen Sinatra, M.D. is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and former Chief of Cardiology at Manchester Memorial Hospital where he has been Director of Medical education for the last ten years.
Dr. Sinatra is also an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. His New England Heart & Longevity Center in Manchester, Conn., integrates conventional medical treatments for heart disease with complementary nutritional, anti-aging and psychological therapies that help heal the heart.
Dr. Sinatra is also the author of several books including Optimum Health, Heart Sense for Women and The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology.

Dr. Stephen Sinatra: Metabolic cardiology describes the biochemical interventions used to improve energy metabolism in the heart. The heart uses a large amount of energy, in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), to function. The body is continuously making ATP, but when people have any form of heart disease — whether it’s a diabetic heart, an alcoholic heart, someone who has had a bypass or a heart attack or even an otherwise healthy person with hypertension, any sick heart — their hearts’ cells are losing ATP and overtime, the body can’t make it fast enough to refill the tank. What metabolic cardiology is all about is preserving the heart’s cells with the substrates it needs to make ATP. If you give it what it needs CoQ10, L-carnitine, D-ribose and magnesium — the heart has an incredible innate intelligence to repair itself. When you give it the right nutraceutical support, the heart’s energy machinery, the mitochondria, can produce more ATP. The heart needs ATP for systole and diastole (contraction and relaxation) but the heart also needs ATP to repair and rejuvenate itself. When you give a cell ATP, the cell is able to repair itself.

When you increase ATP to any cell, you’re increasing the pulsatile activity of the cell, allowing the cell to function better, allowing more nutrients in, more toxins out. When you do that, you really invigorate, regenerate and revitalize the cell — that’s what metabolic cardiology is all about.
