PART 2

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the prevention of disease.”-Thomas Edison. Conventional doctors have no underlying philosophy guiding their work. Specialization leads to interests only in a particular field of study rather than the entire human system. So when your cardiologist examines your heart, his attitude toward the rest of your body is similar to that of any specialist. He works only on the heart; he doesn’t check the rest of you to see if everything is working within the parameters of any philosophy of health. He just fixes what needs to be fixed and sends you on your way. His model is based on often unrelated, pharmaceutical motivated scientific studies that have no cohesive framework or purpose, a haphazard collection of scientific data that leaves both patient and doctor without an organizing principle around which to think problems through. Because doctors are trained to diagnose illness, they’re not looking at what could promote health. They’re only looking for a particular disease. In 2001, spending on prescription drugs shot up 18.8 percent, to $131.9 billion, according to a study by the National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation. The main trade association for drug companies, responded, “this report should be hailed as good news: because it means that “more patients are getting more and better medicines.” But we couldn’t disagree more. Good news? That more and more people are spending more and more of their money on drugs they don’t need? In 2001, 2.8 billion prescriptions were filled in the United States, or an average of 9.9 per person. We think that drug industry prescriptions have gotten far out of hand. Doctors have been bribed and brainwashed by pharmaceutical companies to prescribe new, expensive medications for every ailment – even when a simple change in lifestyle or diet can accomplish the same or better result. Salesmen never come to a doctor’s office to explain how patients could reduce their heartburn by cutting back on coffee, alcohol, fat, or chocolate, or by taking magnesium.

Problems of vitamin B12 deficiency, a known cause of cognitive dysfunction, dementia, and fatigue.

Millions of arthritis sufferers have found relief from their pain with nonprescription, natural supplements called glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate. Glucosamine, a natural substance present in the body, is also found in high quantities in the shells of crustaceans such as crabs, lobster, and shrimp. Glucosamine not only relieves symptoms, but reduces the joint damage that occurs in arthritis; it puts out the fire as well as turning off the smoke alarm.

Chrondroitin is a member of a family of compounds called proteoglycans, which combine protein and sugar molecules. Like glucasmine, chondroitin is found in the normal joint fluid, and it may act as a lubricant of sorts. As a supplement, it is obtained from either cow cartilage or from crustaceans’ shells. The glucoasmine-chondroitin combination, one of our favorite pro-drugs, works by improving the body’s formation of cartilage, and also by reducing inflammation of the joints themselves. Another pro-drug is N-acetyl cysteine, or NAC, a naturally occurring amino acid compound found in the body that augments and improves the body’s normal mechanisms that thwart illness and disease.

Malnutrition, or what we call sludge. Impaired metabolism, or burnout. Inflammation, or heat. impaired detoxification, or waste. Oxidative stress, or rust.

Asthma is related to digestive health, which is related to liver function, which is related to brain chemistry.

The origin of depression may be physical, such as deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, or B12, rather than mental. As another example, the bacteria in your gut affect your brain chemistry; these bacteria release substances that can cause depression because they interfere with the brain’s neurotransmitters (the chemicals in our brain that are involved with mood and thinking.)

Mercury poisoning: Toxic levels are now epidemic as a result of eating contaminated fish (especially eating large predatory marine fish such as tuna, swordfish, and halibut, and coastal shellfish) as well as the prevalence of silver (amalgam) dental fillings containing mercury. Mercury, one of the more toxic substances common to everyday life, has been associated wit such conditions as dementia, heart attacks, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, and congestive heart failure.

The leading cause of death is not cancer but heart disease – you’re more likely to die of a heart attack or stroke, than cancer.

Vitamins and antioxidants are required for the processing of food.

The best ‘brain insurance’ you can buy right now is:

  • -Cut tuna fish and swordfish from your diet.-Fish is supposedly ‘Brain Food,” but tuna and swordfish are extremely high in mercury, a toxic heavy metal that deposits in the brain and accumulates over long periods of time, causing neurological damage that can to further disease.
  • -Reduce intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates.                                                 -Sugar and refined carbohydrates can aggravate insulin resistance, a common cause of brain fog and long-term brain injury.
  • -Drink one glass of red wine daily. -Protects the mind from oxidative stress
  • -Take 1 mg of folic acid daily. -Controls level of homocysteine, which is closely linked to Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Broccoli and other members of the brassica family, such as cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage, kale, and bokchoy, are important in that they assist your body in the processing and elimination of harmful hormonal or toxic substances.

Omega-3 fat from flax-seed and fish, and mono-saturated fats (found in olive oil, avocados, and nuts), reduce the risk of cancer.

 Eating Ourselves Sick: Our diet is a major – if not the most important – external factor behind the inflammation epidemic. It is certainly no secret that the way we eat is out of sync with our body’s needs. Most of the evolutionary forces that shaped our genetic development were exerted over ten thousand years ago when we were hunter-gatherers. Nothing in that programming could have prepared us for the Big Mac. Our bodies, and more specifically our genetics, simply aren’t designed to eat the ‘foods of affluence’ available to a twentieth-century urban dweller.

According to the June 2004 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), 64 percent of American adults are overweight or obese. 16% of children are overweight, and 31% of those remaining are estimated to be at risk for overweight or obesity. There are a number of straightforward connections between those excess pounds and inflammatory disease. One of these commonalities is called ‘foods of affluence,’ and the overwhelming quantities of some of those foods in the typical Western diet. For instance, early humans obtained more than half of their calories from carbohydrates, but most of these carbohydrates came from vegetable and fruit, with a smattering of beans and whole grains thrown in. In affluent societies, carbohydrates take the form of refined, added sugars and highly processed grain flours, highly caloric foods that provide us with none of the nutrients necessary for optimal health. The ready availability of eggs, meat, and poultry is another function of our affluence.

Obesity has a direct impact on heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, some cancers, gout, osteoarthritis, and poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Obesity is an inflammatory condition, and being overweight makes inflammatory disease more severe. We cannot address one without addressing the other, and we cannot address either without changing what we eat.

 To strike back effectively against the forces behind inflammation, we should look at the global changes that have taken place, both in our dietary habits and in our food supply. Those changes have caused a vast divide between the foods our bodies are designed to eat and what we’re actually eating. This chasm is of the major keys to solving the mystery behind the inflammatory epidemic. In 1800, the great majority (97%) of the world’s populations lived in rural areas. By the year 2000, almost 76 percent of the inhabitants of developed countries lived in an urban environment. One of the results of this population shift has been unprecedented growth in and a significant change in and a significant change in the nutrient content of the world’s livestock industry. In less-industrialized countries, people eat a lot of unprocessed grains and non-meat proteins (like beans and soy) because they are both less expensive than meat, and because it’s hard to store perishables when refrigeration is a luxury. Think, for instance, of a typical Asian meal, which consists of a wealth of rice and vegetables with a little meat added for variety and flavor. Compare that to a typical American plate, where meat, potatoes, and bread crowed out the vegetables – and dessert is an inevitability, not a treat. Cities have an infrastructure to support the distribution of perishables like milk, eggs, meat, fish, and poultry before they spoil. all this has made meat comparatively plentiful – and inexpensive. It’s now more expensive to prepare meals exclusively from fresh fruits, vegetables, and legumes! It’s a lot easier – and a lot cheaper – to stop off at a fast-food place to pick up burgers or fried chicken with a side of fries or coleslaw for dinner than to shop for something to prepare. The drive-through is the problem!

Humans used to eat more fish. In general, dietary consumption of fish has declined. This may have something to do with a shift in pricing; in most cases, it’s cheaper to feed your family chicken, turkey, or pork than fresh fish. Fish is an important source of essential fatty acids, fatty acids that we cannot produce on our own. these fatty acids have tremendous impact on our health, with the result that the medical community is aggressively campaigning to get people to eat more fatty fish. The American Heart Association currently recommends that people without documented heart disease eat fish at least twice a weak, and that people with documented heart disease eat fish every day.

Why don’t you see high-performance athletes chowing down on deep-fried junk at fast-food joints? In fact, a professional athlete concentrates even more intensely on his food choices than the rest of us, because he understands that in order to coax the best performance out of his body, he has to encourage it with the best fuel.

major shifts in the world’s food supply that may be responsible.

‘when researches and doctors are dealing with ‘the big picture,’ as we will be doing in this chapter, they sometimes have to remind themselves that these numbers aren’t just numbers. They represent real people – people in danger, and people in pain. The statistics we’ll be discussing represent our mothers, uncles, brothers, wives, and, perhaps terrifyingly, our children. We are unquestionable facing an epidemic in inflammatory disease. By my estimate, approximately half of all Americans suffer from an inflammatory disorder, and even more of us are at risk. By contrast, noninfectious inflammatory diseases have gotten worse in each of the last three decades. In the face of the tremendous success we have had in beating back conditions that no one thought we could ever conquer, inflammatory disease is besting us. In fact, there’s a shocking and counter-intuitive surprise in the epidemiological evidence: the MORE developed the country, the WORSE the inflammatory epidemic. Ironically, something about our high standard of living is driving this epidemic of inflammatory diseases. Our affluence isn’t alleviating our symptoms, it’s making them worse! A massive study with over a half a million children aged six to seven and thirteen to fourteen years, from 155 medical centers, in fifty-six countries (done by the International Study of Asthma and Allergy in Childhood (ISAAC)) showed that the highest prevalence of asthma symptoms was found mainly in affluent, English-speaking countries, like the United Kingdom and Australia. Symptoms were lowest in Eastern Europe, Russia, China, India, and Ethiopia. Identical trends were observed for hay fever and eczema. So the sophisticated standard of living that so enhances the quality of our lives appears to correlate with the inflammation epidemic.

So what do I mean by affluence? In this instance, affluence isn’t a personal characteristic, but a national one. It’s countries we’re talking about, not individuals. Compared to other countries, America is very rich and very developed. For instance, meat in this country is readily available practically everywhere, and it is relatively inexpensive. In fact, fresh fruits and vegetables are more expensive in some areas than a fast-food burger or fried chicken dinner. By contrast, a rural rice farmer in China is more likely to depend on his own garden and the garden of his neighbors for dinner, with meat as an only occasional addition. The more developed and industrialized the country, the more inflammatory disease there appears to be, which makes inflammation ‘a disease of affluence.’ According to a study done by the Harlem Children’s Zone Asthma Initiative in 2003, one out of every four children has asthma in central Harlem, one of New York City’s poorest neighborhoods.

 

A silent plague is sweeping America, and the vast majority of us are at risk. It has taken the form of a statistically significant and incalculably devastating series of epidemics – an ‘epidemic of epidemics.’ This plague is largely preventable, and yet we are doing little to stop its spread. On the contrary, we’re actually encouraging a tidal wave of disease. At best these illnesses comprise our quality of life; at worst, they can be painful, debilitating, and fatal. Consider the follow:

  • -Seventy million Americans suffer from arthritis – or one in every three adults. That’s twice as many arthritis sufferers as there were two decades ago.
    -More than 20 million Americans have asthma today. It is the sixth most common chronic human disease.

-More than 50 million Americans suffer every year from allergies, a number that has doubled in the past twenty years. There has been a 100 percent increase in the prevalence of hay fever in developed countries in each of the last three decades. Allergic dermatitis affects us at triple the rate in 1960. Ten percent of our young children are affected by allergic dermattis.

-There were 18.2 million people in the United States with diabetes in 2022, a 49% increase from ten years ago. This debilitating disease contributes to about two hundred thousand deaths in the United States each year.

-Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of Americans. Almost 64 million Americans have it in some form, and it killed almost a million people in 2001.

Eczema, a chronic skin disorder that involves scaly and itchy rashes, is the most common skin condition in children under eleven; an estimated 15 million people in the United States suffer from the symptoms of this disease.

-One million Americans have inflammatory bowel disease.

Anyone would agree that these numbers are overwhelming. But they’re even more devastating when you realize that this isn’t just a random laundry list of conditions. In fact, these diseases all share a single underlying cause. What’s the common denominator lining these seemingly disparate diseases, and other serious ones including Lupus (a long-term autoimmune disorder that may affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs), Crohn’s disease, and psoriasis? The answer comes from a surprising quarter: the body’s own self-defense system. These are all inflammatory diseases, diseases that can occur when the body’s own defense system turns against itself. It is true that some of these diseases overlap, like allergies and asthma, which makes it difficult to make an accurate estimate of the full scope of the inflammatory diseases problem. But even with that overlap, it isn’t overstating the problem when one says that inflammatory diseases affect as many as half of the people in America.

The proximate cause of this tremendous, natiowide epidemic that the terrible gravity of the situation hits home: the answer may in fact be right on our dinner plates. The major component driving these diseases is our diet, and the ‘toxic-waste spill,’ to continue the metaphor, is our very food supply. There is no safe house, no place to hide, unless we fundamentally change the way we eat. The staggering number of Americans suffering from these painful and debilitating diseases are, horribily, acting as the canaries in the coal mine. Their agony is sending a message, loud and clear, to those of us who have so far managed to dodge the bullet. This isn’t about the division between people who have inflammatory disease and people who don’t. It’s not about ‘who has it’ and ‘who doesn’t;’ instead it’s about ‘who doesn’t’ and ‘who will?’ Every single one of us has pulled a chair up to this contaminated trough – which means that every single one of us is at risk.

“Why haven’t You Heard About This?’ You know more about inflammation than you think. Like oxygen, inflammation is essential to our continued survival. when the inflammation system goes off course, we quickly turn to medication; I’d bet that there isn’t a soul among us who doesn’t have a bottle of aspirin in the medicine cabinet.  This wonder drug quiets pain, soothes fever, and reduces welling, like several of the other very effective anti-inflammatory drugs on the market.

More disease have inflammation at their root than we think. Inflammation, it turns out, is the culprit behind many of the life-threatening conditions we thought were closed cases. For instance, heart diseases, the leading killer of Americans, actually has inflammation at its root. And new research shows that underlying inflammation may be linked to other major killers, like Alzheimer’s and certain types of cancer. Inflammation is also a major driving force behind type 2 diabetes and dementia. In fact, inflammation may play a major role in  the category of ailments and diseases we have previously called ‘aging.’ Consequently, treating and preventing inflammation can mean a tremendous boon for all of us, often resulting in an enormous increase in function and great relief from pain.

Inflammation isn’t the only burgeoning epidemic. Approximately 64% of Americans are overweight or obese. not only does being overweight exacerbate an existing inflammatory diseases, but fat cells play a major role in the creation of the messengers that cause inflammatory disease. More and more people are affected every year. Today’s inflammatory disease statics are alarming. Tomorrow’s numbers will be worse. The number of people suffering from these diseases – and dying from them – continues to grow. Our medical systems, medicines, and technologies have never been better or more accessible to many people, and yet these diseases flourish as if we lived in the Dark Ages.

Developed a safe, effective, scientifically based, natural approach to preventing and treating inflammatory disease through diet. We’ve devised a program – a simple, easy-to-follow diet solution that will help stop, reverse, and even prevent the debilitating effects of an immune system that has been set permanently on overdrive. The foods you’ll find in this program are ordinary and delicious American table foods. The goal is to choose the healthiest and leas-inflammatory foods. Keep in mind that you can’t affect inflammation by fatty acids alone: you must also pay close attention to the amount, and types, of carbohydrates you consume. consequently, reducing the amount of carbohydrates you eat is another cornerstone.

‘What about those other low-carb diets, like the Atkins and South Beach?’ – The other low carb-diets do not take inflammation into account, and actually they recommend very pro-inflammatory foods. Although those diets have tackled some of America’s biggest misconceptions about food, the big concern is how different foods affect blood sugar.

With Win the War Within, you will learn how inflammation, a natural and vital process, works against you; how you can take the first steps to prevent your body’s natural defense system from turning against itself; how you can incorporate a more healthful, anti-inflammatory way of eating into your life; and how, in so doing, you can take part in beating back this epidemic of very destructive diseases.

 

 

The major reason why America and other first-world nations are falling prey to the epidemic rise in these diseases despite our unprecedented medical advances, is the connection between inflammatory disease and diet – specifically, the fatty acids in our diet.

Every one of us is at risk of developing inflammatory disease unless we bring these fatty acids back into balance.

MODIFILAN
http://www.toxic-black-mold-syndrome.com/images/MODIFILAN2.jpg

MODIFILAN, is a pure, natural nutritional supplement made from the brown seaweed Laminaria Japonica. An extract of this seaweed contains the life essential properties of organic iodine, alginates, fucoidan and laminarin. Worldwide scientific studies and clinical research of these elements have shown the following

* Iodine is important for thyroid disorders, wherever underactive or overactive.

*Alginate is a natural absorbent of radioactive elements, heavy metals and free radicals and toxins. It has the unique ability of binding heavy metals and radioactive elements to its own molecules. As the alginate cannot be broken down by the bile or saliva and cannot be absorbed by the body, it is secreted from the body together with the heavy metals and radioactive substances.

*Fucoidan causes certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destruct. Promoting apoptosis (self-destruction of cancer cells), Fucoidan helps to naturally eliminate harmful cells from organism. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory.

*Laminarin is a polysaccharide helpful in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. It exhibits 30% of the anticoagulant activity of heparin.

These elements, treasured in brown seaweeds, are enhanced by our patented cold-temperature extraction technology, which does not break their molecular structure. And MODIFILAN is not just another dry seaweed product – it is a highly concentrated product. FORTY pounds of raw seaweed are needed to make ONE pound of MODIFILAN.

What does MODIFILAN do?

– Boosts the immune system.- Can help protect against thyroid cancer and other cancers.- Helps to decrease high blood sugar and cholesterol levels.- Detoxifies the body from heavy metals, radioactive elements, free radicals and toxins.- Helps those who are overweight by improving the function of the gastro-intestinal tract. – Improves the structure of hair and nails and help them to grow. – Help to detoxify smokers from strontium and cadmium.

The brown seaweed is harvested from the clean, pristine waters of the Northern Pacific Ocean.MODIFILAN is bottled in the United States.
