If you missed the Dr Oz Show on aging here is the list or ten things to get out of your life/house:
There may be products in our closets and cupboards right now that can shave years off our lives. They can penetrate our lungs, cause asthma and allergies, poison our liver, damage our hearts, and irritate our eyes and skin. Before Dr. Oz stages an intervention, grab a trashcan and recycle bin and go from room to room to eliminate these 10 age stealers. In many cases there are healthier alternatives you can use instead.
1. High Fructose Corn Syrup
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a type of sugar that has been processed and combined with corn syrup to produce a cheap, easily dissolvable sweetener. But this sugar is quickly absorbed by the liver where it is converted into fat. Since your brain doesn't recognize HFCS as regular food, it never shuts off the appetite center -- so you keep eating. Blood sugar levels rise, massive amounts of insulin is recruited to metabolize it and then you crash and feel hungry again. It is found in soft drinks, fruit juices, salad dressings and baked goods. Read the food labels of products in your pantry and refrigerator and throw out all products that contain HFCS.
2. Chlorine Bleach
Household bleach contains the chemical sodium hypochlorite and is used to whiten clothes and kill germs like mold, bacteria and virtues. It’s not good for the environment and not good for you; it is that it evaporates quickly to irritate your nose, eyes, throat, skin and lungs. Good non-toxic alternatives are baking soda, white vinegar or alcohol- and peroxide-based products.
Mosquitoes can be annoying and carry diseases. But keeping them at bay doesn't mean you need to drench you and your property in carcinogenic pesticides. Instead use a natural repellant that contains essential oils such as lemon eucalyptus and lavender. Burning citronella candles outdoors, staying indoors at high biting times, and removing still water where mosquitoes lay eggs is a healthier strategy.
4. Drinking Hard Alcohol
Not all alcoholic beverages are alike. Beer, wine, and spirits, sometimes referred to as hard alcohol, can be damaging when drunk in excess; they can damage the liver (cirrhosis), cause esophageal cancer, internal bleeding, heart failure, pancreatitis and gastritis. And some breast cancers can be fueled by alcohol. Although one glass of red wine a day can offer health benefits, spirits have a higher alcohol content and contain more synthetic chemicals and sugars.
5. Moth Balls
For generations it has been customary to sprinkle a few mothballs made of naphthalene in a box of sweaters to prevent moths from feasting on the fibers. Today, a better choice would be natural alternatives such as cedar chips and lavender sachets. Remember to clean clothes first then zip them up at the end of the season.
6. Air Fresheners and Fragrance Candles
Everyone likes their home to smell clean and fresh but synthetic fragrances that waif through the air can negatively affect the quality of indoor air, damage lung tissue and airways and irritate the eyes. Keep it real. If your house is clean it shouldn't smell.
7. Trans Fats
Trans fat is a type of unsaturated fat that is made saturated during a manufacturing process that adds a molecule of hydrogen. These hydrogentated oils raise bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol and cause a host of cardiovascular diseases. They are slowly being removed from commercial recipes but products in your home may still contain them. Look in your cupboard and dump anything with hydrogenated oil on the label.
Toluene, a solvent found in nail polish, paints and when petroleum-based paraffin candles are burned can cause nervous system damage. Naturally scented beeswax, soy or vegetable candles and natural alternatives to nail products are a better choice.
9. Detergents with NPE
Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPE) are chemicals that help liquid substances such as oil and water mix. They are found in laundry detergents, shampoos, and cleaners. These chemicals can mimic the hormone estrogen to cause early menstruation, low sperm counts and poor reproductive health. Use natural cleansers and consider alternative cleaning tools such as the microfiber mops or steam cleaner that can reduce or eliminate the use of harsh chemicals.
10. Cigarette, pipe, and cigar products
All tobacco products produce harmful chemicals even after you have eliminated the smoker from the house. When you have stopped smoking give your house a clean makeover, washing all fabric curtains and upholstery and think about putting on a fresh coat of paint. Ban smoking in and near your home forever after.
As I watched the new Dr. Oz TV program yesterday about the Swine Flu I decided I should tell people what I'm doing to prevent my family and myself from coming down with the Swine Flu.
The Top Seven Supplements for Resisting the Swine Flu
1. Solaray “Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids,” 500 mg C and 500 mg Bioflavonoids, two capsules in the morning and two in the evening.
2. Twinlab “Citrus Bioflavonoid Caps,” 1400 mg (in two capsules), two capsules in the morning and two in the evening.
Vitamin C and Bioflavonoids prevent scurvy (gum disease and tooth loss), protect the elasticity of the skin, and strengthen the immune system.
3. Allera Health Products “Immunextra” capsules, one in the morning and one in the evening. (This tiny capsule has helped me avoid taking antibiotics for bacterial infections, which I am prone to get, and has helped my daughter, Sandra, control a vicious viral infection she has had since childhood — constant, multiple canker sores in her mouth — that changed into Internal Shingles with swelling and pain in her breasts and throughout her body in 1997 when she had a hysterectomy.)
Immunextra fights viral and bacterial infections. It contains two of the most important natural compounds on earth, lignin and polysaccharides. Proligna®, the active ingredient in Immunextra™ should not be confused with pycnogenol, or any other pinecone extract that’s available. The scientific name for Proligna® is Polyphenylpropenoid-Polysaccharide Complex, or PPC. More than 30 peer-reviewed scientific studies have been published describing the properties of PPC. Immundxtra is the only product that contains Proligna®, which has been shown to scavenge free radicals and to act as a potent antioxidant (Satoh and Sakagami, 1996).
4. Natural Energetics “Flora-G Plus” capsules, one billion CFU L. sporogenes, two capsules in the morning, noon, and evening.
L. sporogenes is a probiotic, which supports the growth of friendly bacteria and helps maintain a healthy balance of microflora in the intestines. It is not destroyed by stomach acid and needs to be replenished daily. When you take Flora-G Plus there is no need to eat yogurt.
5. Natural Energetics “Candida-G” capsules, two capsules in the morning and two in the evening.
Candida-G repairs tissue damage at the cellular level, marks all bad bacteria and fungus — such as Candida — as bad guys to your immune system and your body immediately destroys them. Used topically there is no equal in clearing up skin fungus. You may open a capsule and mix it with luke warm water and use it as a douche to kill a vaginal yeast infection.
6. Serrapeptase, 5 mg tablets, two tablets in the morning, two at noon, and two in the evening. (These tiny tablets immediately stopped mucous from plaguing me. For the five years I’ve been taking them I have no mucous in the morning as I had since I was a child.)
Serrapeptase digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque, scar tissue, and inflammation in all forms. Serrapeptase is naturally processed commercially through fermentation and was discovered in the silkworm intestine.
7. Dick Quinn's African Birdseye and East Indian “Cayenne” capsules, "Power Caps,” (100,000 Heat Units of Cayenne) and/or “Power Plus” capsules, (130,000 Heat Units of Cayenne), one in the morning. [I’ve been taking one of Dick’s cayenne capsules every morning for ten years. My blood pressure had started to go up in 1999 (139/85), but within four months of beginning to take one cayenne capsule a day it was down to 123/70, and has stayed there (it’s 120/70 today, 9/16/09)].
I always take my cayenne capsule first thing in the morning, before I have eaten anything, I drink two cups of water first and another cup of water with the cayenne capsule, then I take three flax seed oil capsules and one Evening Primrose oil capsule, which prevents the burning sensation in my stomach from the Cayenne. Also, I wait about an hour after taking my Cayenne capsule and my oil capsules before I eat my breakfast. If I eat too soon the Cayenne stays in my stomach for two to three hours and I can feel the heat. If I wait an hour it is gone from my stomach and I feel no heat.
More about Flax seed oil capsules and Evening Primrose oil capsules tomorrow.
My friend, teacher, and hero, Dr. Hulda Clark, passed away September 3, 2009.
A friend called and left the message on my voice mail yesterday (thank God for friends — I must not be on the email list of www.newcenturypress.com ).
When I told my daughter, Sandy, with tears in my eyes, the news about Dr. Clark, she asked if I was alright and if Dr. Clark’s death was going to upset me like the death of my 21 year old daughter, Cappie’s, did in 1980!
I can understand her concern because we talk often about the fact that if Dr. Clark hadn’t
written her book, The Cure For All Cancers, she, Sandy, wouldn’t be alive today.
But, yes, I am upset. The world has lost one of the most intelligent, hard-working, brave, excellent communicators-through-the-written-word of our lifetime.
I wonder who will pick up where she left off — maybe no one during the remainder of my life.
Thank God for Dr. Clark and her writing abilities and, because her book may not have grabbed my attention without it, for putting the word “Cure” into the title of her book.
The choice of the word “Cure” may well have caused her to leave this world sooner than was necessary, and I’m sure she is in heaven resting after all the stress of living in America during her almost 82 years here.
She taught us, among many things, that the health of our teeth is of crucial importance to the health of the rest of our body. Many others have written about this truth — and I read their books many years before her’s — but no book made it as personal to me as Dr. Clark’s The Cure For All Cancers.
Thank you, Dr. Clark, for what you gave the world while you were here, we can only hope we give one tiny particle of the amount of gifts you gave.

When you take a cayenne capsule to protect your heart it is wise to take it with your flax seed oil capsules and/or fish oil capsules. This allows the cayenne to do its magic for your heart without irritating (or, in my case, ‘burning’ or, an even better description, ’setting on fire’) the [...]
“Only three 5 mg tablets of Serrapeptase daily for 12 to 18 months are sufficient to remove fibrous blockages from constricted coronary arteries.” —Dr. Hans Nieper Hans A. Nieper, M.D., an internist from Hannover, Germany, studied the effects of Serrapeptase on plaque accumulations in the arteries. A book about Dr. Nieper’s work, The [...]

This document should help you to better understand when to consume the amylase supplement.
An amylase is an enzyme that breaks starch down into sugar. Amylase is present in human saliva, where it begins the chemical process of digestion. Foods that contain much starch but little sugar, such as rice and potato, taste slightly sweet as they are chewed because amylase turns some of their starch into sugar in the mouth. The pancreas also makes amylase (alpha amylase) to hydrolyse dietary starch into di- and trisaccharides which are converted by other enzymes to glucose to supply the body with energy. Plants and some bacteria also produce amylase. As diastase, amylase was the first enzyme to be discovered and isolated (by Anselme Payen in 1833).
Enzymes are biomolecules that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. Nearly all known enzymes are proteins. However, certain RNA molecules can be effective biocatalysts too. These RNA molecules have come to be known as ribozymes. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process are called substrates, and the enzyme converts them into different molecules, called the products. Almost all processes in a biological cell need enzymes to occur at significant rates. Since enzymes are selective for their substrates and speed up only a few reactions from among many possibilities, the set of enzymes made in a cell determines which metabolic pathways occur in that cell.
Starch or amylum is a polysaccharide carbohydrate consisting of a large number of glucose units joined together by glycosidic bonds. Starch is produced by all green plants as an energy store and is a major food source for humans.
Pure starch is a white, tasteless and odorless powder that is insoluble in cold water or alcohol. It consists of two types of molecules: the linear and helical amylose and the branched amylopectin. Depending on the plant, starch generally contains 20 to 25% amylose and 75 to 80% amylopectin. Glycogen, the glucose store of animals, is a more branched version of amylopectin.
Starch can be used as a thickening, stiffening or gluing agent when dissolved in warm water, giving wheatpaste.
Sugar (see below for etymology) is a class of edible crystalline substances, mainly sucrose, lactose, and fructose. Human taste buds interpret its flavor as sweet. Sugar as a basic food carbohydrate primarily comes from sugar cane and from sugar beet, but also appears in fruit, honey, sorghum, sugar maple (in maple syrup), and in many other sources. It forms the main ingredient in candy. Excessive consumption of sugar has been associated with increased incidences of type 2 diabetes, obesity and tooth decay.
Saliva (also referred to as spit , spittle or slobber) is the watery and usually frothy substance produced in the mouths of humans and most other animals. Saliva is produced in and secreted from the salivary glands. Human saliva is composed mostly of water, but also includes electrolytes, mucus, antibacterial compounds, and various enzymes.  As part of the initial process of food digestion, the enzymes in the saliva break down some of the starch and fat in the food at the molecular level. Saliva also breaks down food caught in the teeth, protecting them from bacteria that cause decay. Furthermore, saliva lubricates and protects the teeth, the tongue, and the tender tissues inside the mouth. Saliva also plays an important role in tasting food by trapping thiols produced from odourless food compounds by anaerobic bacteria living in the mouth. 
In mammals, food enters the mouth, being chewed by teeth, and broken down by the saliva from the salivary glands. Then it travels down the esophagus into the stomach. Acids break down most of the food. The "leftovers" go through the small intestine, through the large intestine, and are excreted during defecation.
The pancreas is a gland organ in the digestive and endocrine system of vertebrates. It is both an endocrine gland producing several important hormones, including insulin, glucagon, and somatostatin, as well as an exocrine gland, secreting pancreatic juice containing digestive enzymes that pass to the small intestine. These enzymes help in the further breakdown of the carbohydrates, protein, and fat in the chyme.
Glucose (Glc), a monosaccharide (or simple sugar) also known as grape sugar, blood sugar, or corn sugar, is a very important carbohydrate in biology. The living cell uses it as a source of energy and metabolic intermediate. Glucose is one of the main products of photosynthesis and starts cellular respiration in both prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea) and eukaryotes (animals, plants, fungi, and protists).
The FDA has given its blessing to continue with amalgams - requiring "labeling" instead of a real ban!
Specifically, the FDA recommended that the product labeling include:
I interviewed Leo Cashman from DAMS (Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions), International on the connection between our health and mercury amalgams (fungus promoter, cancer cause and more). Listen to my discussion on Leo's experience with Dr Simoncini's only live US class on the subject of fungus and mercury amalgams:
