ALTRUM DIET

Studies in China confirm that taking a good multiple vitamin not only improves health but causes weight loss.

Altrum’s Ultra-Multi is arguably the most comprehensive multiple vitamin ever devised by man. LABEL.

People frequently tell me that taking the Altrum Ultra-Multi causes weight loss.

DNU01 for women. ( Contains Iron).

DWI01 for men.

Read the label on the bottle as it shows how comprehensive the product is. LABEL.

A single Altrum Ultra-Multi contains more nutrient load than a ‘1-a-day’ tablet.

Altrum also offers a high quality Drink Mix. Taken daily it can lead to even greater weight loss.

For those who feel hopeless about losing weight Dr. Jason Fung may be of some help: https://intensivedietarymanagement.com/. Fasting. http://prudently.com/blog/.

Besides high quality, Altrum offers wholesale pricing to their Preferred Customers and a splendid FREE eNewsletter.

Upliftment Formula by Altrum has been very helpful for me and made me feel less depressed and I sleep better.

Studies show that St John’s Wort is more effective as we age.

Upliftment Formula contains other quality ingredients that benefit mood.

( If you are taking an Anti-Depressant or any other medication you should consult your doctor prior to taking St. John’s Wort).

Pineapple

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.

Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness. Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit.

Pineapple is a remarkable fruit.

The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.

It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple’s value. Proteolytic means “breaks down protein”, which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory. Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It also produces mild pain relief.

In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the Bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat. If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet. It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations.

Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies. In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.

This is why Altrum Longevity Enzymes contain Pineapple enzymes and Papaya enzymes.

Colds

Unknown wildflower –photo by Steve Dawes 2015

Got a cold. Everybody seems to be getting it.

Sneezy, clogged runny nose. Watery eyes. Became really noticeable yesterday after dinner.

At the first sign of symptoms I took the Altrum Cold Season Zinc Lozenges as I always do.

Contains: Slippery Elm, Echinacea, Zinc, Selenium, Propolis, Vitamins A, C etc.

Directions on bottle say dissolve 3 lozenges in mouth and follow every 2 hrs with another. No more than 12 a day. Seems to start working almost immediately. Relief.

This time next morning improvement was big.

Magnesium

-Unidentified Wildflowers — photograph by Steve Dawes 2015

As you may know from past blogs magnesium and vitamin D
are big deficiency areas for most Americans (60-90%).

Magnesium is now missing from our tillable soil and because we are indoors a lot not enough sunlight/vitamin D. Time spent in your car does not count because ultraviolet cannot penetrate.

Magnesium is needed by the entire body. Lack of Magnesium in the brain can cause depression, anxiety and poor memory.

If you garden or are part of a gardening co-op you may want to consider using AGGRAND Organic Fertilizer as it contains Atlantic Sea Kelp. This builds the soil up and replaces missing components that are of course still in the oceans ( i.e. magnesium etc.).

A good way to restore magnesium in your body is to use a bath salt like Epsom Salts.

Magnesium is best absorbed through the skin.

CANCER

– Iron Weed Wildflower, photo by Steve Dawes 2014

Historically, no attempt is made to check for cancer unless there are symptoms.

Now a new breakthrough may change the Cancer Landscape.

Researchers at MGH’s Center for Systems Biology have developed a hand-held nanotechnology device that can assess in as little as 2 hours , with a drop of blood, cancer generated microvesicles. ( Microvesicles are slightly larger than proteins but smaller than cancer cells).

In the past these microvesicles have been ignored. The number and type of microvesicles can help determine cancer type and presence.

More work needs to be done, but there is a good chance that your doctors office may have this device in 3-5 years. Checking for cancer may just become part of the normal blood test.

There are over 250 kinds of cancer known at this time. Many of these can not be detected until it is too late.

Evaluating treatment has been delayed or slow. Changing chemotherapy choices and radiation targets more timely will lead to much higher success rates.
