Common Causes of Auto-Immune Disease

Most people talk about Fibromyalgia, which is characterized by chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, brain fog or cognitive impairment, mood imbalance, especially depression and painful tender trigger points. It is just one of many auto-immune diseases.

Conventional medicine has been unable to uncover the cause of fibromyalgia and only offers management of symptoms through pain medications and antidepressants. Unless their perspective changes, they will never be able to find a cure, because the problems arise at the cellular level – the focus of prevention, not at the organ level – the focus of treatment.

Functional medicine focuses on the root cause of chronic diseases, treating the cause at the cellular level to restore normal function. Once normal function is restored, the body’s self-correcting homeostatic tendencies bring it to pain-free healthy balance.

Here are the top ten root causes of auto-immune disease:

1. Gluten intolerance

When we eliminate gluten from the diet, over 50 “incurable” diseases are resolved. The reason people are having such a difficult time believing that the cause of their pain is their food is that most gluten intolerance symptoms are not digestive, they are neurological: pain, brain fog, memory lapses, sleep disturbances, tiredness, mood disorders, and behavioral issues.

2. Fungal overgrowth

The most famous fungus, or yeast, is Candida albicans. Candida lives in your gut, and when overproduced, it breaks through the intestinal wall, penetrates into the bloodstream, releases toxic metabolites into your body and causes unpleasant symptoms that include brain fog, fatigue, digestive disturbances and pain. Candida overgrowth goes hand-in-hand with nutritional imbalance that needs to be resolved before health can be restored.

3. Thyroid malfunction

Most people with auto-immune disorders have either low thyroid function (hypo-thyroid) or Hashimoto’s (both over and under performing thyroid). Unless your doctor checked all required blood markers (not just TSH) and used the optimal levels rather than the standard reference range when checking your thyroid function, you may have thyroid issues that need to be resplved. If you are experiencing fatigue, brain fog, sleep disturbances and mood disorders, also check you thyroid performance – take your oral morning temperature for a month and see – is it at 98.6 F?

4. Nutrient deficiencies

Magnesium, iodine, selenium, vitamin D and B12 deficiency are the most common nutrient deficiencies of people diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Some people can completely reverse their fibromyalgia symptoms with magnesium supplementation. To fully understand which nutrients you should increase or not get your Metabolic Typing profile.

5. Micro-Biome imbalance (SIBO, Leaky gut)

Effective microbial terrain is required to extract nutrients from food, and to prevent under-digested protein fragments from entering the blood stream, where the immune system must attack it and create auto-immune problems. Intestinal terrain balance can be upset through the use of antibiotics, prescription drugs, chlorinated and fluoridated water, or a high glycemic index diet that is too rich sugars and starches. Bacteria are involved with nutrient extraction, including iron, vitamin B12 and others.

6. Toxic Mold exposure

Mycotoxins are toxic substances produced by molds that grow in wet and poorly ventilated spaces. Conventional environmental mold testing only tests for levels of mold spores and does not test for mycotoxins. Getting a urine mycotoxin test will show clearly if you have been exposed to toxic molds. Herbal tinctures can be used to resplve the problem.

7. Heavy Metal toxicity

Especially mercury toxicity contributes greatly to auto-immune disorders. Mercury is most commonly acquired from dental fillings, but also from breathing the exhallations of coal burning power plants. Heavy metals can be effectively removed with either zeolite, or with EDTA, and supported with chlorella and cilantro. Metal toxicity can be checked with hair analysis, or with DMPS challenge urine test.

8. Adrenal fatigue

Adrenal fatigue is a general term used for the results of chronic stress exposure. Chronic pain and other issues of industrialized lifestyle stress the adrenal glands, causing them to mallfunction. Adrenals can be effectively supported with adaptogenic herbs, but it is important to resolve the primary cause of the stress and eliminate it.

9. Genetic mutations (MTHFR)

Some of us have inherited from either one or both of our parents a mutation of the MTHFR gene that impairs the methylation and detoxification ability. You may have to get specialized methylated supplements (methyl-B6, methyl-B12, folinic acid) and avoid their unmethylated versions (cyanocobalamin, folic acid). You will have a challenge with detoxing metals and other industrial toxins, and you will have low stamina. You can greatly improve your function with MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) supplementation.

10. Glutathione deficiency

Glutathione is the central part of our anti-oxidant recycling system. Glutathione recycles vitamins and allows them to be used again to protect from oxidative stres (aging), and it itself needs to be recycled in your liver — with the help of GSTM1 and GSTP1, the enzymes needed to recycle and produce glutathione. Supplementing with glutathione precursors (NAC, alpha lipoic acid, milk thistle) can help resolve fatigue, brain fog, and slow down aging.

It should be clear that these causes are interrelated and they all contribute to the rise in auto-immune diseases, including fibromyalgia. The symptom oriented approach of the mainstream medicine cannot produce lasting results. You should not have to suffer needlessly or mask your symptoms with pain medications and antidepressants. The method employed by the functional medicine approach will help you understand your specific causes, and the steps required to bring you back to health.

Risk factors for developing fibromyalgia symptoms include:

Genes. Recent research has confirmed a genetic risk – the methylation pathways and the ability to get rid of industrial toxins is indeed inherited.

Gender. Women are 10 times more likely than men to develop fibromyalgia – we speculate that it has to do with the hormonal issues. Men are more likely to develop a problem on the autistic spectrum.

Age. With increasing age we become more toxic and experience break downs of the defenses. Reports suggest that 3 to 6 percent of the general population worldwide are affected by auto-immune disease. http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/a/ai/prevalence.htm

Trauma. Intense emotional or physical trauma is one of the triggers that adds to the risk of developing fibromyalgia, especially if you already have other predisposing factors.

Sleep. We are not sure which is the chicken and which is the egg, the sleep problems or the inflammation. They are self-reinforcing, each making the other worse.

Physical stress. Repetitive motion stress will aggravate certain areas. Carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, back pain, neck pain are all listed as job-related, but they in fact are the effects of auto-immune disease.

Emotional stress. Yet another self-amplifying feedback loop of pain-mood-attitude that makes the auto-immune disease worse. Meditation, yoga, EFT, and other methods of clearing emotional stress will help you resolve your situation sooner.

Join us in the exploration of the issues that contribute greatly to the rise of auto-immune disease.

Healthy Heart Function, Clear Blood Vessels Strong Immune System and Renewed Sexual Function, Too

Sometimes it’s hard to believe that we’re actually aging – that supposedly inevitable energy decline that comes with more candles on the birthday cake.  The good news is, we don’t have to be that way. There are ways to supplement our lives in ways that can rejuvenate our energy and improve our heart, blood vessels and sexual function (yes, we’re talking about fixing erectile dysfunction too).

Algoran-FS from Marine Technology

algoranThe ingredients in this energizing and rejuvenating supplement work together to reduce the effects of aging and promote longer, healthier life.  It supports your memory and mental abilities, and your heart and circulation. One great effect of blood vessel health is on erectile dysfunction – say goodbye to that!

The brown seaweed Ecklonia bicyclis is shown to be effective for increasing your body’s nitric oxide release… read more about that lower down.  It’s also an antioxidant – more powerful than land-based antioxidants.  It inhibits tumors and strengthens your immunity.

  • Increase Energy and Stamina, Lower Body Fat
  • Improve Athletic Performance, Endurance
  • Reduce Fatigue and Sleep Better
  • Reduce Pain from Inflammation
  • Relieve Chronic Degenerative Conditions
  • Improve Sex, because like Viagra, Ecklonia bicyclis is a known Nitric Oxide releaser.

Ecklonia is especially good at reducing inflammation and relieving most chronic degenerative conditions.  Users report higher energy, pain and general improvement of health conditions – more good days every week.

One of the most important benefits of taking Ecklonia is increased nitric oxide.

What Nitric Oxide Does For You

Nitric oxide is a critical oxygen-based molecule in your body.  It keeps your arterial walls relaxed and dilated, it regulates blood pressure, blood vessel function, sexual and immune function.

People with atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, strokes and diabetes typically have insufficient levels of nitric oxide.

A clinical study of people with damaged artery walls showed that after taking Ecklonia for six weeks, their arteries began healing with over 50% more blood flow.

And there’s more… these healthier arteries began generating nitric oxide again, keeping them open and relaxed!

So it was confirmed that Ecklonia can rejuvenate damaged blood vessels to produce nitric oxide – increasing dilation of by over 50%.

Are you taking L-Arginine for Nitric Oxide benefits?

There are new findings… Many people are taking l-arginine – it was shown that taking the amino acid L-arginine would increase nitric oxide production.  New research shows that taking L-arginine to boost nitric oxide doesn’t work as expected.

Researchers studied nine healthy men and women, giving them various doses of l-arginine, then tested how much l-arginine converted to nitric oxide.

After the participants ingested and absorbed l-arginine, 60% of it was immediately converted to urea in the liver.  The remaining l-arginine made went to the blood stream, but only about 2% went to nitric oxide production – a very tiny amount.

To increase your nitric oxide, instead of l-arginine consider Algoran-FS.  It goes beyond boosting nitric oxide with ingredients to energize and rejuvenate.

Boost Your Nitric Oxide Further… with B-12 Spray

methylcobalamin Vitamin B12 enhances the ability of your cells to process nitric oxide. It also keeps your brain and nerves healthy and working properly. Most people are not getting effective and adequate amounts of Vitamin B-12. When people purchase regular “off the shelf” Vitamin B-12 sublingual tablets, absorption rates are not equally effective.  This spray is a cut above other Vitamin B-12 supplements because it’s in the methylcobalamin form – the most absorbable form of B-12 – readily available for your cells to absorb.

For normal functioning of your brain and nervous system, it helps in the formation of blood and also helps you handle stress and sleep better.

Oh the times, they are a changing… remember that Bob Dylan tune? Just two years ago we thought the War on Drugs would never end, and now there are several states with fully legalized marijuana, and many more with legal medical marijuana programs.

A few decades ago, marijuana was smoked by peace-loving hippies and frowned upon by serious professionals. Today, the professionals are recommending medical marijuana and that’s the change we’re talking about today.  Look up “marijuana in America” and you’ll see just how much our times really are changing!

See Dr Sanjay Gupta’s reports on CNN – he has done an excellent job of showing why we need to change the rules.

“Medical Marijuana” is still all about smoking the weed, and the professionals who recommend it don’t even know that there is another option. While marijuana is not legal in most states, the new CBD-only products ARE legal, and will not trigger a THC test. They will not make you impaired, and they will have profound beneficial effects.

The big news is about just ONE component of the hemp plant that’s called Cannabidiol (CBD) – it does NOT get you high, and it IS legal. Just as decaf coffee will not make you jittery, CBD – without the THC – will not get you high.

The two main important functions of CBD are in pain relief and mood balance.

Pain Relieving and Mood Enhancing

For decades, only high-THC recreational cannabis was available. The CBD-rich industrial hemp strains have a wide range of medicinal applications. The reduced psychoactivity of CBD-rich hemp makes it an appealing treatment option for controlling:

  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Spasms and Seizures

WITHOUT the disconcerting effect of lethargy or euphoria. Scientific and clinical studies indicate that CBD could be effective in easing symptoms on a wide range of difficult-to-control conditions, including:

  • Arthritis (including rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Alcoholism
  • Epilepsy and neurological disorders.

CBD has demonstrated neuroprotective effects, and its anticancer potential is currently being explored at several research centers in the US and other countries.

We have many CBD options for you…

Please choose one that fills your needs, and note:

  • Most neurological issues respond to a fairly small dose of 1 to 2 mg.
  • Muscle problems need a bit more, usually 5 to 10 mg.
  • Researchers recommend that for active cancer care, one should take between 50 and 200 mg of CBD per day.  Cancer also responds better when some THC is also available – but we cannot supply that.

Sometimes when you think that there must be a conspiracy between some parties controlling an aspect of your life, it may turn out that you were right!

One excellent example of this is the story of hemp. But before I talk about that, let me tell you about coconut oil.

In the 90’s, coconut oil was used to top that yummy popcorn we all ate as we watched our movies. Then someone decided that it caused health problems and theaters were banned from using it. Coconut oil became taboo. True enough, not all coconut oil is cold pressed and trouble-free, but coconut oil’s benefits are now shouted from the rooftops, or at least in many health food store aisles.

So what really happened in the 90s? The people who make vegetable oils won the public relations battle. Coconut oil disappeared from the movie theaters and from grocery store shelves for a decade, replaced by canola, corn and safflower oils, to name a few.

Hemp suffered a similar fate back in the 1940s. Why should you care about it? Because hemp extract, and especially one of its components – cannabidiol (CBD) – are excellent anti-inflammatory agents.

Watch a 60 minute webinar about the Secrets of Hemp Oil and how it helps heal cancer and inflammation.

Most everything that causes aches or chronic pain your body
can greatly benefit from adding cannabidiol (CBD) to your life.

Let me quote some government research:

Besides dealing with many types of cancer, CBD is very good at calming over-excited nerves and “study demonstrated that endogenous cannabinoid system signalling is likely to provide intrinsic protection against colonic inflammation and cannabinoids may also contribute to pain modulation through an anti-inflammatory mechanism.”

In 1937 the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration crafted the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, the first US national law making cannabis possession illegal except for industrial or medical purposes.

It was brought forward in the interest of the Hearst family – they wanted to make paper from trees, not hemp – and of the Dupont family – they wanted to use nylon, not hemp for rope and cordage.

Fast forward 60 years, and we have the near perfect replica of the Prohibition years, except we call it the “War on Drugs”. We are jailing millions of people, killing thousands of them in turf wars, and wasting billions of dollars investigating, suppressing, incarcerating and eradicating. How can the final outcome be anything different than what happened with Prohibition?

But I digress. This letter is about health, inflammation, and cancer. Raw Hemp has fantastic healing properties.

CBD is one of its components, and it’s responsible for much of the healing effects.

The good thing about it is this: it is legal!

THC, the other major ingredient in the varieties of hemp that would get you high, is not.

Let me address the most frequently asked questions about Hemp Oil:
1. Will I get high?
Sorry but no – not with the CBD hemp oil. And not even with home made fresh hemp juice.

2. Will I become addicted?
Hemp oil does not cause your body to crave more. It is non-addictive, harmless, and effective for practically any medical condition.

3. Is this the same as hemp seed oil?
No! This oil is made from the hemp stem and stalk extract. It is the essential oil of the hemp plant. Health food stores sell oil made from hemp seed that is often mislabeled as hemp oil.Although seed oil is very beneficial, it does not contain enough CBD to have any effect on cancer and other serious illnesses.

4. How much do I need?
The typical dose for general neurological issues, such as tremors, twitches, nervousness, etc. is about 1 to 3 mg at a time, several times per day. Each person is different, and needs to find their right dose. Over time the required amount goes down, not up, as the immune system makes repairs and reduces the underlying cause of of the problems.

I want to mention that a movement that has been unfolding for several years in the background or underground, started by a very brave man, Rick Simpson. He has been using the name Hemp Oil for a product that is the extract of the marijuana bud, rich in both CBD and THC. It would be better if it were called “marijuana oil” to distinguish it from the “hemp oil” that is rich in CBD only.

Rick’s story is in this 7-part video series. It’s compelling, and well worth your time.

Watch a recording of our “Hemp Oil Secrets and Your Health” webinar with Christie Lunsford to share how Hemp oil can radically change your health.

In this webinar, we really are… “Restoring Vitality to You and to the Planet”.

The Healing Capacity of Youth Restored with Brown Seaweed

The search for a better, faster, stronger, more effective plants that can help reverse the effects of aging has not stopped. The researchers have been looking in all the harsh or highly competitive environments and have been find impressively potent plants. Sometimes it is in the high mountains, or in the far north, another time it is in the equatorial jungles. This time they found one in the ocean, just at the edge of light and total darkness, a new antioxidant proven to be substantially more potent than any antioxidant vitamin, berry or even the celebrated green tea extract.

ecklonia cavaEcklonia Cava Extract – In just a few months you can undo years of damage to your heart, brain, joints and nerves.

If you’re one of the millions suffering chronic pain, joint stiffness, headaches, lackluster sexual performance, weakening muscles, poor sleep, excessive fatigue and brain fog, then please read this:

In a double-blind study, patients suffering from these symptoms took Ecklonia Cava Extract for 8 weeks and showed dramatic improvements. Patients reported:

  • 31% less pain
  • 71% more energy
  • Better nighttime sleep
  • 2 more “good days” every week!

And there’s so much more to this one simple, natural nutrient!
Revive damaged arteries and improve blood flow – in just 6 weeks!
The list of health benefits is extensive…

  • Supports Cardiovascular Health and Improves Cholesterol
  • Thins Your Blood + Reduces Fibrinogen = Healthy Circulation
  • Soothes Joint Pain and Inflammation
  • Energy for Exercise and Weight Loss
  • Sharpens Memory and Mental Focus
  • Better Sleep and Reduced Fatigue
  • Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar
  • Kills the Enzyme that Destroys Eyes and Nerves
  • Safe and effective.

Supports Cardiovascular Health and Improves Cholesterol

Healthy cells lining your arteries and veins generate nitric oxide to keep the walls relaxed and dilated, to regulate blood pressure and other blood vessel functions, activate sexual arousal and power up immune function.

People with atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, strokes and diabetes typically have insufficient levels of nitric oxide.

A clinical study of people with damaged artery walls showed that after taking Ecklonia Cava Extract for six weeks, their arteries began healing – with over 50% more blood flow! These healthier arteries began generating nitric oxide again, so they remained open and relaxed.

All this wonderful artery health solves erectile difficulties, and easy arousal, too.

Researchers gave Ecklonia Cava Extract to men with erectile difficulties and found their orgasmic function was boosted and they had increase intercourse satisfaction – and overall satisfaction by more than 60%!

About your LDL (bad) Cholesterol

Damage to your heart and artery walls can be from oxidizing LDL (bad) cholesterol.  As it starts to oxidize, LDL cholesterol can damage the lining of your arteries.  Ecklonia Cava Extract inhibits the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, greatly enhancing the health of your heart and circulatory system.

In one study, researchers gave Ecklonia Cava Extract to 39 adults (average age 55) for six weeks, and here are the results…

  • Average cholesterol level dropped
  • Hard-to-raise HDL (good) cholesterol significantly rose from 46.5 to 50.7
  • Triglycerides fell from 215 to 195
  • Atherogenic index (measurement of atherosclerosis) dropped a significant 12.5%.

All these wonderful, life-changing benefits came with no lifestyle changes!

Thins Your Blood + Reduces Fibrinogen = Healthy Circulation

If you’re wondering how your blood can be too thick, here’s how it works…

Fibrinogen is a protein in your blood that gets broken down into fibrin to form clots, to stop wounds from bleeding.  Many people have too much fibrin, making their blood too thick (cause of stroke), putting a strain on the heart because it has to work harder to move the sludge. This can make circulation sluggish and force the heart to pump even harder, eventually leading to heart failure.

Scientists found that Ecklonia Cava Extract naturally thins your blood (without thinning it too much) and it also lowers fibrinogen levels.

Soothes Joint Pain and Inflammation

Lower fibrinogen levels – from taking Ecklonia Cava Extract – means less inflammation in your body, and less pain.  Just this one effect alone may be profoundly favorable for your lifestyle.

Ecklonia Cava Extract also has the ability to reduce inflammatory COX enzymes (they cause inflammation, joint discomfort and pain).  These enzymes can get out of control from poor diet, stress, injury, infection and toxins.

When given to a group of patients with knee and joint problems, Ecklonia Cava Extract significantly reduced their pain.  And unlike conventional COX-inhibiting treatments, Ecklonia Cava Extract reduces pain without nasty side effects!

Energy for Exercise and Weight Loss

If you’re overweight, you know how difficult it is to shed those few extra pounds.

Here’s how Ecklonia Cava Extract works on excess fat…

  • In experiments on lab mice, Ecklonia Cava Extract reduced body fat and increased physical activity so much that obese mice lost more than 10% of their weight in just 120 days.
  • In a human study, 141 young adults drank a beverage containing Ecklonia Cava and after two weeks, their average weight dropped more than 2 pounds.
  • With a healthy diet and some exercise, Ecklonia Cava Extract stimulates your body to burn more fat – especially the worst kind – abdominal fat.
  • The enzyme DGAT synthesizes triglycerides – the nasty blood fat that winds up in your fat cells.  Researchers found that Ecklonia Cava Extract inhibits DGAT by more than 50%.

Sharpens Memory and Mental Focus

You may feel it already. With age, most of us tend to forget things and may have trouble concentrating to stay focused on a task.

Ecklonia Cava Extract crosses the blood-brain barrier and significantly improves blood flow to your brain, helping to keep it sharp and focused, warding off cognitive decline.

The blood-brain barrier is your brain’s way of blocking foreign substances, allowing only essential nutrients to get in. Because Ecklonia Cava Extract is 40% fat-soluble, it has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier with antioxidant protection for your brain cells – and all your other cells too.

After just 7 days of taking Ecklonia Cava Extract, in the brain regions responsible for learning and memory, the memory-dependent neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) was increased by a whopping 140%!

And there’s more…

One group of researchers found that Ecklonia Cava Extract increases the velocity of blood flow in arteries that feed your brain, from an average of 36.68 cm/sec. to 40.09 cm/sec. The placebo group showed no improvement at all.

National Institutes of Health scientists studied Ecklonia Cava Extract in animals and found that animals fed Ecklonia Cava Extract learned maze challenges faster. This shows short-term memory improvement that can ward off cognitive decline.

In another study, researchers found that Ecklonia Cava Extract improved alertness in bus drivers and high school students – likely due to more oxygen and blood to the brain.

Ecklonia Cava Extract Works up to 24 Times Longer than other Antioxidants

Water-soluble, plant-based antioxidants like berries are excreted in your urine after just 30 minutes. Because Ecklonia Cava Extract is fat-soluble, it’s active longer in your body – up to a full 12 hours – or 24 times longer.

Better Sleep and Reduced Fatigue

Getting adequate rest on a regular basis is essential for a strong immune system and your overall health.  You feel energized enough to finish your daily tasks and get some exercise too.

Researchers gave Ecklonia Cava Extract to 36 participants in an 8-week study.

The results…

  • Reduced time to fall asleep by 47 minutes
  • Increased total sleep by 1.6 hours
  • Improved soundness of sleep by 80%
  • Boosted energy level by 71%

Patients given the placebo showed no improvement.

Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar

We know that too much body fat interferes with proper insulin metabolism.

Recent studies show that Ecklonia Cava Extract reverses fat deposits in the liver and pancreas cells. When researchers fed Ecklonia Cava Extract to genetically engineered fat mice, it reduced their blood glucose by 10% and literally removed fat.

Proof of Ecklonia Cava Extract’s Effects on Blood Sugar…

A man we’ll call Ron M. had a long-term problem with high blood sugar. He made changes, followed strict dietary suggestions and took supplements, but continued having morning blood sugar in the range of 140 mg (considerably lower than 300 before diet changes and supplements).

Within two weeks of starting Ecklonia Cava Extract, his blood sugar plummeted to an average of 100 mg.  And after eating cake, his blood sugar rapidly normalized!  Before taking Ecklonia Cava Extract, that sugar intake would have sent his glucose over 300.

Kills the Enzyme that Destroys Eyes and Nerves

Aldose reductase is an enzyme that is present in your eyes, nerves, and many other body parts.  If your blood sugar gets too high, Aldose reductase converts some excess glucose into sorbitol that can build up and damage your eyes and nerve cells.

The good news again – Ecklonia Cava Extract is a potent inhibitor of aldose reductase.

So if you have high blood sugar or are predisposed to it… this is one supplement you need to have in your daily regimen!

Safe and Effective as Food

Korean biochemist Dr. Haengwoo Lee (now living in Washington State) discovered this new antioxidant. It’s from red and brown sea algae and grows 100 feet below the ocean’s surface near Korea and Japan. Ecklonia Cava Extract is food, not a synthetic pharmaceutical. Asians have been eating the seaweed for centuries.

Teams of PhDs and doctors have spent $35 million dollars on clinical studies over the last 15 years in U.S., Japan, and Korea. If you’re taking medications or other supplements, there are no adverse effects from adding Ecklonia Cava Extract – only benefits.

Some Science Behind Ecklonia Cava

Ecklonia Cava Extract has a unique molecular structure from other antioxidants, made of 8 interconnected rings that neutralize free-radicals.  The more rings an antioxidant has, the better it works.

Compare Ecklonia Cava‘s 8 interconnected rings… resveratrol from grapes has 2 rings, most land-based antioxidants have 3 rings, and green tea has 4.  The 8 interconnected rings in Ecklonia Cava’s molecular structure makes it an astonishingly powerful antioxidant.

Scientists measure antioxidant power with Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC).  The more free radicals an antioxidant absorbs, the higher the ORAC score. To reduce free radical damage, it’s recommended that we consume 5000 ORAC units/day. One serving of most fruits or vegetables gives you roughly 500 ORAC units – a mere one-tenth of your daily minimum.  Ecklonia Cava Extract has an ORAC score of more than 8,300.

Ecklonia Cava Extract gives you more than one entire day of antioxidant protection in one single nutrient!

Ecklonia Cava Extract – One of the biggest nutritional discoveries in years.

Are Prescription Medications Really the 4th Leading Cause of Death?

“Is the Health Care System itself the cause of your health problems?” It very well could be. Especially if your visit to the doctor fits the status quo – You have probably experienced the 5 minute chat with the doctor followed by either a prescription medication to treat your symptoms or a complete dismissal of your symptoms all the while being told that you have too much stress and should take an anti-depressant.

Today’s health care environment is not designed to improve your health.  If it were, the doctor would spend lots of time with you.  If the current system of prescribing drugs for chronic disease was effective, we would have less heart disease, less cancer, less arthritis, less diabetes, less obesity, less bone loss…  The fact of the matter is, the current system has not led to less disease.  It has become the 4th leading cause of death!

Consider the following quote from The Journal of the American Medical Association

“Hospitalized patients had serious adverse drug reactions (ADR’s) and 106,000 had fatal ADR’s, making these reactions between the fourth and sixth leading cause of death.”
