New Book – Worth Reading

HealthTip of the Week…

New Book - Worth Reading
In "Say NO to Counterfeit Health Care - YES to the Alternative" Warren Davidson says that it's obvious that health care costs in the US are out of control and outrageously high. As a person is struck with illness and goes to medical doctors, Davidson says that unnatural drugs are prescribed as normal procedure and as more illness occurs, additional drugs are given.

America's #6 Most Popular Drug
The #6 most popular prescribed drug in 2009 according to Forbes Magazine (May, 2010):
Metformin (diabetes)-Over 52 million prescriptions.  The most common brand names for this drug are Fortamet, Glucophage, Glumetza, Riomet.
We present this information for you if you find that you MUST take medication.  Now you can be aware of the do's and don'ts:
Take extra vitamin B12 and folic acid, as they may help you side-step potential side effects This drug may deplete vitamin B12 and folic acid, which can lead to anemia and high homocysteine levels.  Taking 1,000 mcg of vitamin B12 and 400 mcg of folic acid (folate) daily may prevent these effects.
This drug also has known negative interactions with food (yes, all food) and alcohol.  Not knowing the interactions can lead to very serious side effects.
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic metformin reaction:  hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.  This  drug may cause a fatal build-up of lactic acid in the body.  This condition can start slowly and get worse over time. Get emergency medical help if you have even mild symptoms such as:
muscle pain or weakness
numb or cold feeling in your arms and legs
trouble breathing
feeling dizzy, light-headed, tired, or very weak
stomach pain, nausea with vomiting or slow or uneven heart rate.

The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…The Bottom Line…
Eating organic foods and taking supplements and herbs greatly lowers the costs of health care without the dangerous side.  Davidson (Spotlight) wants people to discover that the average US diet is contributing to the health crisis in the US.  He sites those who did not receive help from traditional medicine but did get positive results by changing their lifestyle. "If Americans knew they create their own chronic diseases by their food choices, many would change their diet."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
