Amazing Results & Effects of Cannabis (CBD) Oil

December 9th, 2014

Charlotte Figi was 3 months old when she had her first seizure. By the time she was five years old, she was having 300 grand mal seizures every week – her seizures were so violent, her parents signed a ‘do not resuscitate’ order in her medical records.

Her parents never gave up, even though she was in a wheelchair, had feeding and oxygen tubes, and was seizing every thirty minutes, 24 hours a day.

Charlotte’s mom heard about a strain of medical marijuana that was very low in THC content, the psychoactive agent in marijuana, and very high in Cannabidiol (CBD), a compound in cannabis that has incredible medicinal value, but doesn’t get people stoned.

After years in which only high-THC cannabis was available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown by, and for medical users.

Charlotte’s mom and dad discovered the Stanley brothers, one of Colorado’s largest marijuana growers. Charlotte’s parents put an olive oil solution containing high CBD extract under her tongue and today, 6 year old Charlotte is thriving. Her seizures have decreased to only two or three times per month, mostly in her sleep. Not only is she walking, she can ride her bike, feed herself and is talking more each day. Miraculous.

Why non-psychoactive Cannabis oil?

Without the psycho-activity associated with marijuana, CBD-rich cannabis makes it an appealing treatment option for patients seeking relief from inflammatory, pain, anxiety, and anti-psychotic effects without any of the side effects of the THC content. It is safe for anyone to use because the oil is derived from hemp, rather than from marijuana, and legal in all 50 states and 40 countries!

Who can benefit?

Clinical scientific studies highlight CBD’s potential as a mediator against conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD had also demonstrated neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its potential in the race to find the cure for cancer are currently being “investigated at several academic research centers in the U.S. and elsewhere.”

The Secret Alzheimer’s Warning Sign

September 23rd, 2014

You are probably familiar with traditional Alzheimer’s warning signs.  www.alz.org lists these early signs and symptoms:  memory loss that disrupts daily life, difficulty problem solving, planning and completing familiar tasks, confusion with places and times, losing things frequently, and experiencing changes in mood and personality.

But there are important, yet hardly known, potential precursors to Alzheimer’s.

I’ve shared with you repeatedly over the years the dangers of using anti-depressants and sleep medications.  If they aren’t bad enough, there are drugs out there that attempt to combine them both and what they end up with is a chemical “Russian Roulette” cocktail.

In an article titled These Common Drugs are Giving You Alzheimer’s and published this month in The Institute for Natural Healing, a research publication, the authors talk about this new family of drugs – Benzodiazepines, or benzos – are dangerous in many ways.

Doctors are prescribing benzos in an attempt to treat anxiety, depression and insomnia in one extremely powerful little pill called Xanax, Valium, and Ativan  – and not surprisingly, these little monsters are responsible for 35% of the 1.4 million prescription drug-related ER visits in one year alone.

According to the article, researchers discovered that taking these drugs for only 3 months can increase risk of developing Alzheimer’s by over 50%!

This is just astounding.  And believe me when I say the drug companies aren’t going to be advertising the results of this study!

The researchers concluded that these medications should be declared a public health crisis – the longer the seniors in the study took these drugs, the greater the increased risk. The author’s of the article declared this to be a “direct threat to your health – even your life!

These drugs are beyond dangerous, they are destructive to our brain and thinking capacity. Never take them.  And if you are taking them now?  Please contact our Healthy Living Support team and set up a consultation to find out how to immediately get off of these drugs safely.

And now the good news!

We’ve told you for years about natural ways to help prevent this horrific disease from ever affecting your life.  Our anti-alzheimers formulas are

Mind PowerOmega 3-6-9 and Ultra D3.  Combined, these three formulas can give you the edge against dementia and the traditional Alzheimer’s symptoms.

In this “Information Age,” the effects of stress overload the brain, wreaking havoc on our thinking ability. Mind Power is like an “Einstein-pill” that fuels the genius inside of you, allowing you to think faster, remember faster and deliver protection against the ravages of dementia and early-onset Alzheimer’s.

Research out of the University of Exeter Medical School recently discovered vitamin D3 deficiency raised the risk of dementia by 53% and severe deficiency – blood levels lower than 25 nmol/L – increased risk by 125%.  And the news kept getting worse. Low vitamin D3 levels increased risk of Alzheimer’s Disease by 69% and the ones who were severely deficient, increased their chances by 122%!  This study proves there is a direct link between low vitamin D3 levels and dementia/Alzheimer’s.

You need to take Ultra D3 every. single. day! Whether you are 25 or 85, it’s not too soon or too late to be giving your brain what it needs to stay healthy!

Omega 3-6-9 is a balanced blend of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) plus Omega-9, a non-essential, but beneficial fatty acid. Omega-3 and Omega-6 are necessary for the maintenance of your heart, nervous system and skin. Omega-9 promotes a healthy vascular system.
EFAs are vitally important for brain health, as the brain consists primarily of EFAs.

For children labeled with ADD/ADHD and elderly experiencing Alzheimer’s symptoms, try Omega 3/6/9 to supply the brain with the vital nutrients it needs.

We can’t guarantee you won’t ever get Alzheimer’s Disease, but we want you to have the best chance possible to never contract this dreaded illness.

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, anxiety or even been suicidal. Our mission 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!

Also 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

Managing depression is not a one-size-fits-all solution. If you are struggling with depression and anxiety due to emotional or physical triggers, we can help! Call our customer support team to schedule a consultation with one of our health coaches. 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.)
