Should we ALL be taking Lithium?

September 19th, 2014

I read an article in the New York Times over the weekend entitled, Should We All Take a Bit of Lithium? – and for the title alone, I just knew I had to share it with you!

The basic premise of the article is this:  Researchers discovered that areas where the water supply contained natural levels of lithium, the depression and suicide rates were much lower than areas where the levels of lithium in the water were much lower or non-existent.  Lithium was found to significantly lower suicide rates, and had a significant effect in lowering rates of dementia!

Lithium is a powerful mineral and none of us should be without it – even for one day!

According to Charles Walters, author of the book Minerals for the Genetic Code, lithium:

  • is critical to the body and vital for emotional stability
  • is helps the spleen work and assist the immune system in all it’s function
  • has been shown to protect brain cells involved in learning and memory
  • is able to kill cancer cells
  • is associated with treatment for psychiatric disorders, even suicide
  • is only needed in trace amounts to provide maximum benefits
  • helps to stabilize the neurotransmitter Serotonin, the happiness and well-being brain chemical

Signs of lithium deficiency include behavioral problems, depression, alcohol cravings, manic depression, impotency, dementia and severe/prolonged melancholia.

Did you know that in the early days of 7up (originally called, Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda), the soft drink contained lithium?  It wasn’t for depression either – it was for helping manage headaches – and 7up soon became the drink of choice for hang over sufferers!

7-up actually advertised for a season for young mothers to add the soft drink to their babies milk to keep them ‘calm’ – or just tip the bottle right to your babies lips for maximum effect!

As you know, I believe minerals are the foundation of health and wholeness, and we have build our Body as Doctor philosophy entirely upon the amazing, life altering benefits of using minerals, especially ionic minerals.

When I read the New York Times article, I thought, “If everyone in the world had access to our Life Transfusion Liquid Minerals, we would be rid of most anxiety and depression – maybe even most chronic disease!”

So today, I’m sending you the gift of an amazing New York Times article, along with my recommendations if you or a loved one are battling anxiety or depression.

1. If you are suffering from depression or anxiety, you need to go off ALL dairy and meat from cows! Remember Mad Cow Disease? It’s still around.  Eat more fruits and vegetables and focus on healthy sources of protein.

2. Make sure you walk, run or bike for 30 – 60 minutes every morning. You brain needs oxygen! Have you heard of “runner’s high”? This means the exercise is turning on your Serotonin factory, the crucial chemical ESSENTIAL for the brain to be happy.

3. Start with diet and exercise, and add one or more of our anti-depression formulas that can take the edge off, while you deal with the underlying issues driving your emotional state. We have an entire brain and mood category of extraordinary formulas designed to give you the emotional, psychological and mental boost needed so that you can overcome whatever is coming against you.

Our ‘liquid lithium’ formula, Life Transfusion Liquid Mineral Complex, is definitely the place to start!  Lithium is a natural anti-depressant, and magnesium can calm anxiety better than any pharmaceutical drug!

IN CONCLUSION:
Whether you want to use preventative measures to avoid depression throughout life, or are struggling now with depression and anxiety due to emotional or physical triggers, we can help! Call our customer support team and find out which formulas are right for you. Or if you need to talk, please schedule a consultation with me or one of my team – We are all here to help you.

Robin Williams Suicide Brings Depression to the Forefront

August 19th, 2014


I was stunned and deeply saddened by the recent news of Robin William’s suicide
. Robin touched our lives in ways few are able. His immense talents spanned hilarious moments of stand-up comedy, and films such as Mrs. Doubtfire, to breathtaking dramatic performances in films like Dead Poet’s Society and Good Will Hunting, for which he received an academy award.

It came out over the course of the week that Williams had been diagnosed in the early stages of Parkinson’s Disease. The combination of his deep depression and his grim outlook for the future was enough to push him over the edge emotionally and psychologically.

As is true when these horrific suicides occur in the public eye, our focus often turns to the depth of depression and sadness one must have experienced in order to come to the conclusion that life is not worth living anymore.

Depression and suicide have been the major topics searched on Google this week, as well as reported heavily on every news station, but one thing the major news agencies don’t tell you is how to deal with the depression in our own lives!

Many of us either know someone who has experienced severe depression and/or anxiety or been suicidal, or else have experienced these symptoms ourselves, and our mission at AskDrGarland/BodyasDoctor is to both educate and empower you to let your body heal itself – including healing debilitating depression.

This is a brief “to do” list if you or someone you love are battling depression.

1. Of course, if you are experiencing thoughts of suicide right now, please call someone!  Reach out and call a friend, a loved one or a suicide hotline!

2. If you are suffering from depression or anxiety, you need to go off ALL dairy and meat from cows! Remember Mad Cow Disease? It’s still around.  Eat more fruits and vegetables and focus on healthy sources of protein.

3. Make sure you walk, run or bike for 30 – 60 minutes every morning. You brain needs oxygen! Have you heard of “runner’s high”? This means the exercise is turning on your serotonin factory, the crucial chemical ESSENTIAL for the brain to be happy.

4. Start with diet and exercise, and add one or more of our anti-depression formulas that can take the edge off, while you deal with the underlying issues driving your emotional state.  We have an entire brain and mood category of extraordinary formulas designed to give you the emotional, psychological and mental boost needed so that you can overcome whatever is coming against you.

Our ‘liquid lithium’ formula, Life Transfusion Liquid Mineral Complex, is an amazing, all-natural anti-depressant!  Lithium is a natural anti-depressant, and magnesium can calm anxiety better than any pharmaceutical drug!

Or check out our Nature’s Energy Secret formula!  This formula is packed with Rhodiola Rosea, another all-natural anti-depressant. Rhodiola has repeatedly been proven to significantly impact depression symptoms and is also a powerful adaptogenic to help you cope with stress and change.

5-HTP is what your brain needs to produce serotonin – the ‘feel good’ chemical in the brain.  When our serotonin levels are low, we feel depressed and when our serotonin levels are markedly low, we are severely depressed.  Boosting serotonin levels is KEY to happiness!

“I LOVE the 5-HTP! It’s made a huge difference in my life. It really helps in stabilizing my mood to handle day to day stress.” - Brenna Ballestero

“I love Good Night combined with 5-HTP to finally sleep! I am anxious and have always been a very light sleeper, I wake up several times a night and take hours to actually get to sleep. These products have changed that! When I wake in the morning I am not groggy like I was with medication.”
- Connie Loyd

“This is one of the best products I’ve ever taken. I have been taking Nature’s Energy Secret for a couple of months now and I no longer have fatigue in the afternoons like I used to, and I’ve noticed that I’m calmer and able to focus more. I don’t ever want to be without it.” - Andrea Marks

IN CONCLUSION: Whether you want to use preventative measures to avoid depression throughout life, or are struggling now with depression and anxiety due to emotional or physical triggers, we can help! Call our customer support team and find out which formulas are right for you. Or if you need to talk, please schedule a consultation with me or one of my team – We are all here to help you.

“You – you alone will have the stars as no one else has them…In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night…You – only you – will have stars that can laugh.” ― (the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry quote shared by Robin William’s daughter, Zelda on Instagram upon the news of his death.)

The End of Alzheimer’s and ADHD?

July 29th, 2014

Alzheimer’s and ADD/ADHD did not exist when I was growing up. They have both only appeared in the last few decades and were simply unknown until very recently.

Other modern epidemics are running rampant as well, like diabetes, hypertension, breast and prostate cancer.

We are having these new epidemics because we are doing things humans have never done before. These record rates are confined to industrialized nations, especially America.

No people in the history of the entire world have ever hogged down so many calories, fat, sugars, and nutrition-less food than we do.  No one.

EVER.

Alzheimer’s disease is basically based upon inflammation and oxidative stress – the same factors causing coronary heart disease. Once Alzheimer’s takes hold, it cannot be cured. The most significant causes are excess sugar intake (more than 160 pounds per person each year,) high blood glucose, high insulin, and insulin resistance.

Our mad devotion to eating double bacon cheeseburgers only adds fuel to the fire as we stuff over 40% saturated (animal) fat calories into ourselves each day.  GROSS!

The percentage of fat we consume should only be 10 to 20%, and come directly from vegetable oils.

Of course, we all need to stop our addiction to animal protein and stop eating pig and dairy. That’s definitely the first step. But, there’s more.

Our incredible Mind Power formula is the most super-powerful, all-natural anti-Alzheimers and anti-ADD/ADHD product available today.

Nothing compares.

REVEALED: The Truth About Cholesterol Drugs

July 22nd, 2014

Magnifying glass looking at CHOLESTEROL

Do you believe the medical community’s claim that it is high cholesterol that causes heart attacks, heart disease and/or strokes?

Do you also believe you need to take a drug to lower it?

This is a lie and you need to know the truth – Very low cholesterol is dangerous to your health – and taking pharmaceutical drugs, primarily statins, are more dangerous than the cholesterol!

People have been wrongly told for years and years that their high cholesterol levels were going to kill them if they didn’t do something – immediately!

During this same time, people who had been prescribed cholesterol lowering drug, experienced serious side effects – most of which were ignored by the medical community.

It is imperative to understand the pros and cons of cholesterol and statin drugs – You will be very surprised!

Cholesterol might not be the danger to your health that conventional medical doctors believe it is.

In fact, their medication IS THE GREATEST DANGER!

Read on to hear the surprising facts from my friend, Lena Sanchez, and change your view of cholesterol forever.

Brain Disease Increase Connected To Low Cholesterol!

© Lena Sanchez

Has your doctor insisted you need to lower your cholesterol levels? Tens of thousands are being told this and are taking cholesterol lowering medications – statins – out of fear they will have a heart attack, stroke or heart disease.  This is far from the truth!

In fact, according to one study – “very low LDL cholesterol levels may actually increase your risk of Parkinson’s disease.”  The study involved 236 people — 124 Parkinson’s patients and 112 controls. The researchers measured all the participants’ cholesterol levels and gathered information regarding their smoking habits and use of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

They found the subjects with the lowest LDL levels (less than 114 milligrams per deciliter) had a 3.5-fold higher occurrence of Parkinson’s than the participants with higher LDL levels (below 138 to 250 milligrams per deciliter).

Conventional medicine wonders why millions of Alzheimer’s cases exist – research shows there will be 14 million cases by 2050.  It seems that the pharmaceutical industry, along with doctors, who aim for an LDL below 200, are actually causing the Alzheimer’s increase!



Here is what Mayo Clinic Cardiologist, Dr. Thomas Behrenbeck stated:

“Rare cases of memory loss have been reported in people taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, such as Lipitor. But these reports were anecdotal and have not been substantiated by formal testing of cognitive function. In most of these cases, memory improved after the individuals stopped taking the statins.”

If these statin drugs can cause memory loss, could Alzheimer’s patients really be suffering with drug induced, very low cholesterol memory loss caused by use of statin drugs?
