This stuff is delicious! and it comes in resealable bags which make awesome stocking stuffer. I love the phi plus and tropiphi. I cannot get it any cheaper than you can, so I do not stock it at the clinic, but I buy it for myself and my children and highly recommend it for your family. If you buy something and don’t like it, bring it by the clinic and I’ll buy it from you.  Here is the link again.  Happy Holidays!

Over 70% of Americans are using alternative health care

http://www.naturalnews.com/019352_alternative_medicine_dangerous_drugs.html

 

Organized medicine will soon become another sad chapter in the history of medical experimentation. Those who continue to follow organized medicine, take lots of drugs, undergo multiple surgical procedures and chemotherapy will themselves be part of that history, too, as conventional medicine is currently killing more than 750,000 Americans each year. That is supported by statistics found in the report Death by Medicine, available at Dr. Gary Null’s website at www.GaryNull.com.

The more sun you get the less likely you are to get Breast Cancer

Natural News

The above link is and excellent presentation of the facts behind the power of daily exposure to our sun.

Some details include:

Johns Hopkins University Medical School conducted a ten-year epidemiological study that showed exposure to full-spectrum light (including the ultraviolet frequencies) is positively related to the prevention of breast, colon and rectal cancers.

Vitamin D3 isn’t exactly a vitamin, but rather a type of steroid hormone that can drastically improve your immune system function.

Dr. Richard Hobday, author of The Healing Sun, says our fear of the sun does more harm than good. Most recommended daily sunscreens block ultraviolet B rays, the same rays that trigger the production of vitamin D. The number of people who die from breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, heart disease,multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis — all maladies that sunlight could benefit — is far greater than the number of deaths from skin cancer.

I recommend everyone study this article and print a copy for their medical doctor!

Osteoporosis Drugs May Be Linked to Cancer Risk

Original article

Side Effects of Osteoporosis Drugs can Be Far Worse than Brittle Bones…

Osteoporosis drugs have become increasingly well-known for their dangerous side effects, many of which could easily be worse than your original concern.

Acid reflux and related esophageal inflammation were a couple of the side effects that quickly became apparent when these drugs hit the market. This is why you’re instructed to take them with food and avoid lying down shortly after taking them.

But as I predicted over a decade ago, that’s just the beginning of the health nightmare these drugs can bring about.

Since their release, bisphosphonate drugs have also become associated with:

  • Hypocalcemia (blood calcium levels are too low)
  • Serious eye inflammation and possible blindness
  • Severe musculoskeletal pain
  • Stomach ulcers – particularly when taken together with anti-inflammatory drugs.

    In one study, 8 percent of participants taking Fosamax and 12 percent of those receiving the anti-inflammatory Naprosyn developed stomach ulcers. But when the two drugs were taken in combination, the rate of stomach ulcers rose to a whopping 38 percent.

    This is important, as many elderly, particularly women, are likely to suffer from both arthritis and osteoporosis, increasing the likelihood of bisphosphonates and anti-inflammatory drugs being taken at the same time.

  • Liver damage –Although the mechanism is still unknown, researchers believe drugs like Fosamax may inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol in your liver, which may alter liver function.

    Regardless of the mechanism, if you’re taking Fosamax or related bisphosphonate drugs you need to beware of the possibility of liver dysfunction, and your doctor should monitor you properly for it.

  • Kidney failure (renal failure)
  • Atrial fibrillation — Women who have used Fosamax are nearly twice as likely to develop atrial fibrillation (quivering of your heart’s upper chambers), which is the most common kind of chronically irregular heartbeat

    One study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that Fosamax was associated with an 86 percent higher risk of atrial fibrillation compared to those who had never used the drug.

    Atrial fibrillation can cause palpitations, fainting, fatigue, or congestive heart failure. It can also lead to embolic strokes.

  • Thigh bone (femur) fractures – Although you’ve only started hearing about this recently, the FDA asked Merck (the maker of Fosamax) to “add information about the report of femur fractures” to the medication’s package insert back in 2008, according to an ABC News report.

    Sixteen months later they finally added it to the list of fine print side effects, but neither Merck nor the FDA properly informed doctors and patients of this newfound risk.

    According to a recent report by a US panel of experts reviewing the evidence of increased risk of unusual femur fractures, 94 percent of patients who had experienced a femur break had been on bisphosphonate drugs. Most of them had taken the drugs longer than five years.

    More than half of those who broke their thigh bones had reported groin or thigh pain for a period of weeks or months before fractures occurred.

    In addition, “more than a quarter of patients who experienced atypical femur fractures in one leg experienced a fracture in the other leg as well,” Canadian CTV reports.

  • Osteonecrosis of your jaw bone (jaw bone death) — This is a serious condition that can also cause disfiguration as the bone in your jaw dies and begins to decay.

    Symptoms include jaw pain, infection, and loosening of your teeth. However, some people experience no symptoms until they suddenly notice exposed bone. If you’ve had teeth extracted, or wear full dentures, you may also be at greater risk.

    Interestingly, an animal study published in the June issue of Journal of Bone and Mineral Research concluded that osteonecrosis of the jaw may involve the interaction between bisphosphonate drugs and vitamin D deficiency! As you will see below, optimizing your vitamin D levels is imperative for healthy bones, and this finding further strengthens that recommendation.

AMA changes stance on Medical Marijuanna

Yesterday, the American Medical Association — the U.S.’s largest and most influential medical association — passed a new policy stance calling for a government review of marijuana’s legal status.

Marijuana is currently classified by the federal government as a Schedule I drug, grouping marijuana with drugs like heroin, LSD, and PCP, which are deemed to have no accepted medical uses and considered unsafe for use even under medical supervision.

The AMA’s new policy “urges that marijuana’s status as a federal Schedule I controlled substance be reviewed with the goal of facilitating the conduct of clinical research and development of cannabinoid-based medicines, and alternate delivery methods.” It goes on to explain that this position should not be construed as an endorsement of state medical marijuana programs.

This is a major shift from the AMA’s previous position, which recommended that marijuana be kept in Schedule I. What’s more, the AMA also rejected an attempt to urge doctors not to participate in state medical marijuana programs by recommending marijuana to their patients.

This shift, coming from America’s most cautious and conservative major medical organization, is historic. The AMA’s previous position was often cited by our opponents as evidence that medical marijuana’s utility was not widely accepted. This change will make the opposition’s argument significantly more difficult to make.

Since 2006, MPP has been instrumental in persuading medical organizations like the American College of Physicians to issue positions calling on the government to relax restrictions against medical marijuana — with the ultimate goal of persuading the AMA to do the same. Yesterday’s news is a big step toward that goal.

If you want to help us continue this work, we could really use your help. If you haven’t yet donated to MPP’s work this year, or if you can make an additional contribution, please visit our donation page today to help out.

Thanks for anything you can do to help us keep racking up the victories!

Sincerely,
