Leaky Gut Syndrome Bone Broth

Could healing your gut also heal your disease?

In our article “Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases Caused by a Leaky Gut?” we described how a leaky gut happens, what diseases it causes, and what to avoid to keep your gut healthy. “Refined flours and highly processed foods are really hard on the epithelial lining of the gut. High glycemic index foods, dairy products, and gluten are damaging. High chronic caffeine use, excessive alcohol consumption, and overuse of antibiotics are bad for the epithelial lining. All of these things weaken the bonds between the cells letting particles escape.

Magnesium Supplements

Avoid diseases, chronic pain, heart disease and nerve pain with magnesium supplements!

Why Do I Need Magnesium?

Your body relies heavily on your consumption of magnesium to perform its most basic functions. Your nervous system, muscles, kidneys, cardiovascular system, digestive system, liver, hormone-secreting glands, and brain all rely on magnesium to function.

What Diseases Can Be Prevented By Magnesium?

Scientists believe that hundreds of health issues and dozens of diseases could be avoided if people maintained healthy magnesium levels. This list includes HIV/AIDS, asthma, autism, epilepsy, migraines, heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, PMS, fibromyalgia, and sarcoidosis.

“The Many Uses of Calcium” Part 2

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

This is a continuation of “The Many Uses of Calcium” Part 1, where we discussed how our bodies use calcium for building bones, clotting blood, keeping teeth and gums healthy, maintaining cell membranes, and for stress management. Learning how we use calcium will help us to realize why it is important to maintain normal levels of calcium in our bodies.

Sleep: Calcium levels are directly linked to your sleep cycles. Our bodies use a lot of calcium during the deepest levels of sleep, particularly REM sleep. If there is not enough calcium present in your body, then REM sleep cannot happen and you’ll wake up. William Sears, M.D. says, “Calcium helps the brain use the amino acid tryptophan to manufacture the sleep-inducing substance melatonin. This explains why dairy products, which contain both tryptophan and calcium, are one of the top sleep-inducing foods.” Replenishing calcium levels can help many people to get a restful, full night’s sleep.

Heart: Calcium is a necessary part of the heart creating a beat. Calcium creates the beginning of a heart beat and then is sent through calcium channels to other cardiac cells, prompting them to beat. Calcium binds to muscle fibers to trigger the actual contraction of the heart. When calcium levels are too high, it slows down the heart. Current studies are being done to determine if high calcium levels put people at a high risk for heart attack. On the other hand, low calcium levels cause a rapid heartbeat and can damage the heart over time.

Cholesterol: New studies are focused around how calcium can help control cholesterol levels. It is thought that calcium binds to cholesterol in the small intestine, so that it is excreted instead of absorbed.

Muscles: Muscles twitch and cramp if there is an insufficient supply of calcium. Calcium can help to improve neurotransmitter function so that muscles receive the right signals, as well. The right amount of calcium leads to smooth functioning muscles with reduced healing time after exertion.

Energy: Calcium flows into and out of cells at a pace that is just right for cellular function. This signaling is very complex, but if calcium levels are sufficient, it is a smooth functioning system. When there is not enough calcium, the cells can’t produce energy. They’re solution is to consume themselves for energy. This is thought to be a contributing factor in nerve damage, nerve degeneration, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.

Skin: Calcium regulates skin cell turnover. It also controls the lipid and melanin content of the skin’s cells. Calcium protects the skin from irritants by stimulating antioxidants to prevent damage to skin cells. Calcium is also thought to prevent premature aging of the skin, thinning of the skin, and protect the skin from various cancers.

“The Many Uses of Calcium” Part 1

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Your body uses calcium for a wide array of functions. We use calcium for maintaining bones, nerves, muscles, and more. We lose a lot of our calcium through sweat and many people don’t get enough calcium to begin with. Use this list to remind yourself of how important calcium is so that you remember to get plenty in your diet or vitamins and supplements routine.

Bones: Children need lots of calcium to build bones and bone mass. As we age, our bodies use calcium for a variety of other reasons. If calcium runs out, our body will draw what it needs from our bones. Bones are not static, fixed structures in the body. They are constantly breaking down and repairing themselves. We need to maintain high enough calcium levels to repair bones when needed.

Blood Clotting: When you are cut or injured, blood needs to clot to prevent bleeding to death. Platelets in the blood stick together and stop the bleeding. Calcium pairs with vitamin K and the protein fibrinogen to form the platelet clot. Without enough calcium in the blood, clotting cannot happen and dangerous bleeding can occur.

Teeth and Gums: Calcium helps to keep bacteria in our mouths from multiplying. When enough calcium is present in the diet, there is less tooth decay. Sugar is known to damage teeth, partially because sugar causes a rapid loss of calcium. Our teeth and gums will usually show signs of decay before osteoporosis sets in. They are great indicators for determining when you are not getting enough calcium in your diet.

Cells: Cell membranes are stabilized and protected by calcium. Calcium is known for helping to protect organ cells, especially the cells of the liver. When calcium levels are sufficient, cell injury and cell death are avoided, helping the body to fight off infection and disease. Calcium also plays a role in regulating nerve signals sent to cells and is thought to protect cells from an overactive immune system and/or invaders.

Stress Management: When we are startled or stressed, cells pull calcium inside of their membranes. When the stressor is gone, the calcium moves back out and magnesium calms the cell. The ratio of calcium to magnesium is very important for regulating stress. Every time a stressful situation occurs, which is multiple times per day for most people, calcium and magnesium are used up. If there is too much calcium or too much magnesium, that imbalance itself causes a stressor in the body, compounding the problem. If you have problems with stress, talk to your doctor about testing your blood to make sure that you are not deficient in calcium or magnesium.

What Do B Vitamins Do?

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

B vitamins were once thought to be one vitamin, vitamin B, because they generally coexist in similar or the same foods. Research later showed that there are actually eight chemically unique B vitamins, each responsible for different types of cell metabolism. If a multivitamin contains all eight forms of vitamin B, it is referred to as “vitamin B complex”.

Because all B vitamins are water soluble, they are generally not stored for very long in the body. B vitamins must be replenished, daily in some cases, by eating vitamin B rich foods or supplementing. Unless you have a specific deficiency or disease that depletes specific B vitamins, your doctor will probably recommend a vitamin B complex supplement. Here we will discuss the role of each B vitamin so that you can better understand what each one does for your body.

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) is responsible for digesting carbohydrates. It also supports the nervous system, regulating signals used by the muscles and heart. Thiamine also helps to control the appetite, promotes proper growth and development, and helps you to maintain muscle tone.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is also responsible for digesting carbohydrates, but also aids in metabolizing them, along with fats and proteins. Riboflavin is responsible for producing antibodies and red blood cells. It is necessary for cell respiration and good eye health. It is also responsible for maintaining the skin, nails and hair.

Vitamin B3 (niacin) metabolizes sugar, protein and fat. It maintains the nervous system, the skin, tongue, and digestive system. It increases energy levels by properly using food calories. It improves blood circulation, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) aids in releasing energy found in carbohydrates, proteins and fats. It helps with growth and development, specifically the development of the central nervous system. It builds antibodies and increases the body’s resistance to stressors.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps with metabolizing fats and proteins. It is solely responsible for breaking down amino acids, which are the components of proteins. Pyridoxine helps to remove excess fluid from the body by balancing sodium and phosphorus. This helps reduce numbness in the extremities. It also aids in maintaining healthy skin, and reduces nausea. It is especially helpful with controlling muscle spasms and cramping.

Vitamin B7 (biotin) helps to maintain balanced blood sugar levels and aids in the production of fatty acids. It is produced by intestinal bacteria, so deficiency is rare, except in the case of certain metabolic disorders. It is thought that since antibiotics interfere with the survival of most intestinal bacteria that biotin deficiency could be a problem in people that are on long-term antibiotic therapies.

Vitamin B9 (folic acid) is necessary for the production and reproduction of all of the body’s cells. It is also necessary for the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow. Folic acid also aids in the metabolism of amino acids.

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) also helps to form red blood cells and also aids in their regeneration. B12 is necessary for preventing anemia. It is used in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism and is very important for maintaining a healthy nervous system. It is necessary for calcium absorption and aids in the growth of children.

In general, B vitamins are necessary nutrients that support metabolism, cell growth, cell division, the immune system, and the nervous system. They help your body to make energy from the food that you eat and prevent many diseases. Talk to your doctor about any vitamins and supplements that you plan to take so that your vitamin levels can be properly monitored.

What You Don’t Know About Vitamin D

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Vitamin D is one of the most powerful nutrients in the world and you’re probably not getting as much as you think. Your skin produces vitamin D when UVB sun rays hit it. We spend less and less time in the sun and suffer from higher rates of cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity than our ancestors did.

1. You may think that you get plenty of sun on your skin driving to work in the morning, or letting the sun bathe you as you work near a window, but the rays that cause vitamin D to be produced cannot penetrate glass.

2. You would have to drink 15 cups of vitamin D fortified milk every day to get as much vitamin D as you get from 30 minutes of direct sun per week.

3. Sunlight is necessary to produce cholesterol sulfate, which is what your body needs to use the vitamin D that you consume through food and supplements. Without it, your body will increase levels of LDL cholesterol to accommodate and use the vitamin D. Sunlight can greatly reduce your risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, arterial plaque, cancer, hypertension, obesity, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, dementia, seizures, asthma, migraines, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and both types of diabetes.

4. The further from the equator that you are, the more time in the sun you need. Most of the United States is considered far from the equator, increasing the time needed in the sun to produce adequate amounts of vitamin D.

5. The darker your skin, the longer sun exposure you need. A very light skinned person may only require 30 minutes per week of arms and face sun exposure when the UV index is at least at 3. A very dark skinned person may require 15 hours per week.

6. Exposing your skin to the sun for long enough to produce adequate levels of vitamin D and cholesterol sulfate will actually give you protection from skin cancer. Even sunscreen with an SPF of 2 can block your body’s vitamin D production by 95%.

7. It takes months of adequate sun exposure and/or supplementation to reverse damage done by low vitamin D levels. When levels are adequate, bones are nourished with calcium, the nervous system is restored to a healthier state, cholesterol levels can return to normal, and widespread inflammation is controlled.

8. A blood test can only confirm that vitamin D is circulating in your blood, not how well your body is using it. If you have kidney or liver problems, you may not be using the vitamin D supplements that you take. Cholesterol sulfate from the sun is necessary to heal these organs so that vitamin D supplements can be used.

9. You can quickly see if your body has adequate amounts of vitamin D and if it’s being used properly by pressing firmly on your sternum, the hard plate in the center of your chest. If it’s painful, you’re vitamin D levels or the utilization of the vitamin D in your blood is low. This test is 93% accurate because vitamin D utilization causes bone to harden. If the soft center of the bone is too close to the outside, due to long-term low vitamin D levels, then bones will be tender and painful when stressed.

10. Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, high blood pressure, psoriasis and depression accompanied by pain are usually only seen in the presence of vitamin D deficiency. This is especially true if the sternum test is painful in individuals with these disorders.

Vitamin News: Vitamin D Does Not Take the Place of UVB Exposure

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

There are five different forms of vitamin D, two of which are important to humans. There are major differences in the two, vitamin D2 and vitamin D3, which you may or may not be aware of. Taking the wrong one can be more detrimental than beneficial to your health. If your milk, calcium supplement, or standard vitamin D supplement simply says “vitamin D”, then you may want to take a look at the label.

A staggering number of Americans are considered clinically vitamin D deficient while an astounding number are considered to be in the insufficient range. This includes children who are exposed to sunlight and drink milk and/or orange juice with added vitamin D almost every day. Even a lot of adults that regularly take a daily vitamin D supplement are deficient.

How can this be? Without a blood test from your doctor, you may be putting your health at a major risk, all while thinking that you are being diligent about your vitamin D intake. Supplemental vitamin D comes in two different forms; ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).

The synthetic form of vitamin D2, comes from passing plant matter and fungus through a radiation treatment. This is the vitamin D typically added to orange juice, milk, and vitamin D supplements. Vitamin D2 can be obtained from plant sources.

Vitamin D3 can be obtained (in small amounts) from animal sources, such as egg yolks and non-pasteurized full-fat milk. While both vitamin D2 and D3 must be converted by the body into active forms, vitamin D3 is converted 500% faster than D2 according to a report by the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism. They also report that vitamin D3 is 87% more potent in raising and maintaining vitamin D concentrations and produces 2-3 fold greater storage of vitamin D.

Once your sources of vitamin D are converted into their active forms, sunlight is necessary to transform them into cholesterol sulfate. This means that, contrary to prior medical beliefs, supplementing with vitamin D does not completely replace the need for sun exposure. In fact, recent studies on the importance of cholesterol sulfate show that without sufficient UVB sun exposure, about 30 minutes per week, the body compensates by producing LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.

Doctors and researchers are now linking heart disease, high cholesterol, arterial plaque, cancer, autism, hypertension, obesity, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, dementia, seizures, asthma, migraines, depression, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and both types of diabetes to a lack of vitamin D3 in the diet and inadequate UVB exposure.

This may sound overwhelming, but when you consider that the proposed 30 minutes of UVB sunlight exposure per week requirement must happen when the UV index is above 3, then you may start to realize why diseases such as these, increase in prevalence as you move away from the equator. Most of the United States only experiences this level of sunlight intensity for about 1-2 months of the year.

These diseases and more are being linked to inadequate vitamin D levels because vitamin D is responsible for an astounding number or processes in the body. It is a neuroregulatory steroidal hormone that influences almost 3,000 different genes and has receptors in nearly every cell of your body. It produces over 200 antimicrobial peptides, including broad-spectrum antibiotics, regulates the immune system and controls chronic inflammation.

Many doctors now recommend “safe” tanning bed use for obtaining adequate vitamin D3 levels. UVA rays are harmful, but beds that only produce UVB rays can be very effective forms of treatment.

Why Do I Need Vitamin C?

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Vitamin C does a lot more than help you to get over or avoid the common cold and flu. It is a potent antioxidant that is critical in helping your body to carry out many of its normal processes. Since vitamin C can only be consumed through diet or vitamins and supplements, it is necessary to consider what you could be doing to your body by failing to get enough.

Vitamin C is responsible for the function and repair of your bones, lungs, circulatory system, joints, immune system, and more. The recommended daily allowance by the government is just enough to keep a perfectly healthy person from developing a deficiency disease, such as scurvy. If you are exposed to any type of pollutant, allergen, chemical, or food additive then your daily requirement to stay healthy increases. Even stress and exercise produce free radicals that lead to oxidative stress, greatly increasing the need for vitamin C.

Free radicals are responsible for creating infection. Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, protects cells, proteins and lipids from free radical damage. It also improves the function and life span of immune cells. This helps the body to defend itself from almost every infectious disease. It also has a dramatic effect on existing infections. An article in Life Extension Magazine reported that “studies of vitamin C supplementation in military personnel and other subjects living in close quarters have shown that pneumonia occurred a remarkable 80-100% less often in subjects taking vitamin C than in those who did not supplement with the vitamin”.

Vitamin C is also responsible for the production of collagen and elastin, which are the major components of connective tissues all over your body. All of your bones, joints, blood vessels and organs are constantly experiencing cell death and renewal. They are in constant need of collagen and elastin to repair themselves. Without enough, we experience unhealthy aging, cancers, high cholesterol, degraded neurotransmitters, improper hormone production, and a long list of inflammatory, degenerative, and infectious diseases.

Vitamin C is needed to properly produce cells, absorb calcium and iron, and prevent diseases such as cataracts, cancer, and heart disease. It also is necessary to regulate blood clotting, which prevents clotting and bleeding disorders.

Ascorbic acid is needed for dental health as well. Your gums are generally the first place that you will notice a difference if you’re not getting enough vitamin C. They are made up almost entirely of connective tissue that is stressed every time you bite down or clench your teeth. You may notice your gums most dramatically turning red, swelling, receding, or bleeding around the teeth that touch first when you gently close your jaw. This is because the gums experience the most stress in these areas. Gums that are inflamed or weak due to a lack of vitamin C are susceptible to gum disease. Gum disease starts as plaque, which recent studies have shown cannot form if proper levels of vitamin C are maintained. Even sailors in the 18th century knew that if their gums started bleeding that they were in danger of scurvy. This is still why many doctors use the health of your gums to determine if you’re on your way to cardiovascular disease, arthritis, lung dysfunction, high blood pressure, stroke, and many other health problems.

Ask your doctor about supplementing with vitamin C. If you have stomach or digestive issues, you can take a buffered form of vitamin C that is non-acidic, like sodium ascorbate vitamin C powder.

How to Maximize Your Vitamin C Benefits

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Learning how to correctly take your vitamin C can help you to increase the benefits that you get from it. Vitamin C will give you protection from scurvy at minimal levels, but won’t necessarily provide you with symptom relief or protection from major diseases unless it is taken at a high enough level. It’s hard to say what the correct “daily requirement” of vitamin C is because everyone has a different level of stress or disease in their body. Therefore, learning how to find the right dosage for your condition and your body can be greatly beneficial.

In general, bowel tolerance of ascorbic acid is proportionate to the toxicity of your disease. In other words, you won’t eliminate excess vitamin C until it’s out of things to correct in your body. Therefore, a daily dose when you’re healthy can range anywhere from 1 to 20 grams per day, depending on the condition and need of your body. One study showed that people with influenza (the flu) or mononucleosis (mono), could take up to 200 grams of vitamin C daily without stomach discomfort or diarrhea. In fact, for severe illnesses such as these, marked improvement was not shown until the dosage of ascorbic acid reached near the bowel tolerance level. The reason that you may not feel better when taking smaller doses of vitamin C is that it is quickly destroyed by injured tissues, disease, and stress. Think of it as trying to wash mud off of your arm with only a few drops of water. It may get smeared around, but the mud is still there. Only with larger and larger amounts of water would you be able to clean off the mud.

Vitamin C works by scavenging free radicals produced by stress, infection, inflammation, germs, bacteria, illness and disease. Not only do diseases and injuries cause damaging free radicals to form, they also lead to the formation of other diseases. Almost every disease is caused by and/or produces free radicals. Infection, heart disease, cancer, burns, trauma, aging, allergies, and autoimmune diseases are all included.

Taking vitamin C daily can vastly reduce your chances of developing a giant list of health conditions. Vitamin C is very sensitive to stress and is generally the first vitamin to be depleted by it. Without enough vitamin C in your system daily, stress can take its toll on your immune system very quickly. Vitamin C is known to bring balance to an overactive or weakened immune system. It does the same for your stress response, helping to control anxiety, overproduction of cortisol (stress hormone), and inflammation.

Many people don’t realize that vitamin C is required by our bodies daily to maintain cartilage, bones and teeth. It is also necessary for producing collagen, absorbing iron, and controlling cholesterol levels. Our bodies go from growing and developing to breaking down and aging. Our cells and connective tissues, even bone, are always regenerating. If enough vitamin C isn’t available for the production of collagen and elastin, our bodies will improvise by using hard, inflexible cholesterol plaques to repair tiny tears and injuries. This is how arteries harden, joints become more prone to damage, and wrinkles form.

Talk with your doctor about supplementing with the best vitamin C, sodium ascorbate vitamin C powder. This highly absorbable, non-acidic form of vitamin C is the most economical and easiest way to get your perfect daily dose of vitamin C.
