Take charge of your health

I just bought and read "Over the Counter Natural Cures," Take charge of your health in 30 days with 10 lifesaving supplements for under $10.) By Shane Ellison. This is an easy to read and apply book that describes most of our problems and how they can be solved by supplements that are so cheap they are almost free. I have done a kind of summary which follows. But you should buy this book from Amazon, or wherever, and apply it if you value your health and life. Life is no good if you hurt, feel sick or just can't get up and get it done.


Sleep and rest: Spring Valley Valerian Root Extract—Walmart $4.17

Cholesterol: Lewis Labs. Folic Acid—or Nutritional Brewers Yeast, $7-$20 Whole Foods

Beat Illness: Soloray Garlic---or garlic raw.

Obesity, Diabetes: Spring Valley cinnamon Walmart – Reduces appetite

Prostate: Puritan’s Pride Saw Palmetto (I got 3 for 1) Great source.

Detox-Life Extension: Rite Aid—Milk Thistle. (A must)

Blood Pressure-cardiovascular: GNC Hawthorne

Vision: Jarrow Formulas Carotenall—Vitamin Shoppe.

Cancer (to avoid and cure) Jarrow Formula turmeric-circumin 95

Avoid cancer by: (1) Avoid inflammation causing foods. Eat omega 3 and Omega 6 foods in balance. (2) Avoid sugar and alcohol (3) Get sunshine (4) Fresh Vegetables every day. (5) Exercise

Rules: read the ingredients in every food.

Avoid food from boxes and cans.

Eat more good fat, not less.

If it tastes sweet, spit it out.

Totally avoid aspartame .

Splenda (sucralose) originated as an insecticide, 600 X sweeter than sugar. Contains a nasty form of chlorine. Maltitol raises insulin and blood sugar.

High Fructose Corn syrup (HFCS) Made in lab. Spikes blood sugar and insulin, causing to overeat and causes wrinkles and aging process.

Safe sweeteners are agave and Stevia. (Watch out only get Sweet Leaf---the others contain maltitol!!)

MSG—monosodium glutamate. It seems to be in every food you buy. Sold as a flavor enhancer. Created in alab to convert healthy rats into diabetic rats to learn more about diabetes. Once consumed, MSG sets into motion a ravenous chemical cascade that begins with spiked blood sugar and insulin and ends with feel-good molecules known as endorphins. The brain then demands more and more overeating.

MSG--This white, crystalline amino acid is made in the lab and added to canned or packaged foods to “enhance flavor.” It only enhances overeating. Check for the aliases in the ingredients---hydrolyzed vegetable protein, hydrolyzed protein, hydrolyzed plant protein, plant protein extract, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate, yeast extract, textured protein, autolyzed yeast and hydrolyzed oat flour. MSG under in disguise under other names.
