Iodine Deficiency ~ Silent Epidemic!

The Silent Epidemic of Iodine Deficiency

http://www.lifeextension.com/magazine/2011/10/the-silent-epidemic-of-iodine-deficiency/page-01

~

Nearly 74% of normal, “healthy” adults may no longer consume enough iodine.

 You will discover iodine’s vital role in thyroid function and its link to obesity, cognitive impairment, heart disease, psychiatric disorders, and various forms of cancer.

~ Iodine can help ward off breast cancer and fibrocystic breast disease.

The US recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for iodine is 150-290 micrograms (mcg) for adults, while the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine has set the tolerable upper limit at 1,100 mcg.

PCOS LADY ~ ASK YOUR DOCTORS 

“Why are you chastizing me on my issues, when you know it is most likely caused by an iodine deficiency you learned about in med school?   ?!?!?!

~

These guidelines may be inadequate to address certain health conditions.

They were first established as sufficient only to prevent goiter. Daily doses for optimal health of 3,000-6,000 mcg have been used without side effects in studies of people with other iodine deficiency-related health conditions such as polycystic breast disease.

By way of comparison, the average daily Japanese consumption of iodine ranges from 5,280 to 13,800 mcg of iodine, with no harmful effects and a host of benefits. The Japanese experience is shedding new light on the importance of iodine, not only for thyroid health, but on other body functions as well. In particular, compelling evidence is emerging about the role of iodine in maintaining breast health, a major concern for millions of American women.

O

Symptoms of Iodine Deficiency

~ hormonal imbalances (iodine is important in the production of all hormones in the body)

~ concentration/focus problems ~ brain fog ~ dry/flaky skin ~ dry mouth/eyes ~ immune system disfunction ~ short term memory ~ acid reflux ~ chronic constipation ~ chronic parasite/candida/viral problems ~ fibrocystic breasts ~ ovarian cysts (PCOS- polycystic ovarian syndrome) ~ excess phlegm ~ hypertension ~ fatigue ~ chronic headaches/migraines ~ vaginal infections ~ hypothyroidism

O

The Importance of Iodine

It has been written that the “fundamental building blocks to health are WATER, SALT, SODA and IODINE”. Of these, iodine seems to be the least understood and the most neglected.

O

Signs of Hypothyroidism
(which may indicate iodine deficiency)

~ brittle nails ~ cold hands/feet ~ cold intolerance ~ constipation ~ depression ~ difficulty swallowing ~ dry skin ~ elevated cholesterol ~ essential hypertension ~ eyelid swelling ~ fatigue ~ hair loss ~ hoarseness hypotension ~ inability to concentrate ~ infertility ~ irritability ~ menstrual irregularities ~ muscle cramps ~ muscle weakness ~ nervousness ~ poor memory ~ puffy eye ~ slower heartbeat ~ throat pain ~ weight gain

O

Why is iodine so important?

  • ~ Iodine helps resist disease and kill germs, bad bacteria, viruses and candida as blood passes through the thyroid.
  • ~ Iodine helps the body to detoxify from candida, parasites, bad bacteria and viruses.
  • ~ Iodine is linked to increased energy and endurance.
  • ~ Iodine calms the body and releases nervous tension helping you get a good nights sleep.
  • ~ Iodine supplementation reduces brain fog and increases focus and concentration.
  • ~ Iodine supplementation helps with all kinds of female issues (hormonal imbalance, fibrocystic breasts, ovarian cysts, breast pain during menstruation, menstrual cramps and more).
  • ~ Iodine help you produce enough stomach acid.
  • ~ Iodine is essential for the heart; not enough iodine can contribute to heart arrythmias.
  • ~ Iodine deficiency may be related to Parkinson’s disease.
  • ~ Iodine is important in the growth of a baby and deficiency may be related to infertility.
  • ~ Iodine may help to rebalance hormones and stop unexplained weight gain.
  • ~ Iodine increases the ability of the body to sweat
  • ~ Iodine deficiency may also be related to hoarseness, dry skin/mouth/eyes, cold intolerance, constipation, and more…

O

Recommended usage to eliminate iodine deficiency:

  • ~ Place 1-2 drops of iodine on the skin each day.
  • ~ Keep an eye on how long the iodine patch takes to disappear each day – the amount of ~ time it takes to disappear should increase each day.
  • ~ 1-2 drops may not be enough if you do not notice a significant improvement in the ~ time it takes the iodine to fade then you may need to take more.
  • ~ Just work up slowly to a maximum of 3-5 drops each day if necessary.
  • ~ Do not increase by more than 1 drop per day.

O

Conditions Treated With Iodine:

~ ADD ~ ADHD ~ Asthma ~ Atheroscerosis ~ Fibrocystic Breast Disease ~ Cancer ~ COPD ~ Diabetes ~ Excess Mucus Production ~ Hemorroids ~ Headaches ~ Hypertension Infections ~ Keloids ~ Liver Diseases ~ PCOS (Ovarian Cysts) ~ Parotid Duct Stones ~ ACNE (Sebaceous Cysts) ~ Thyroid Disorders (hypo, autoimmune and cancers)

CANDIDA (YEAST) SYMPTOMS
~
By Dr John E. Humiston, MD
Here is a list of symptoms and conditions that commonly occur in people with Candida overgrowth. Most all of these same symptoms typically improve or disappear with effective treatment for Candida.
~
Some of the symptoms listed may sound “normal,” because the Candida problem is so common in the modern world. Some are led to say, when they review this list, “Doesn’t that describe everybody?” It must be emphasized that none of these symptoms are part of normal health. When too many people around us are ill, strange symptoms may become common, but that does not make them normal. Many of the things listed — such as asthma, diabetes, epidemic obesity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ADD/ADHD, autism, panic attacks and others — were virtually non-existent (or at least much less common) before the 1970s. They became much too common as a consequence of various factors, including: widespread overuse of antibiotics starting in the 1950s; increased availability of chlorinated swimming pools; much increased use of pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in the food supply; the advent of the birth control pill; and the addition since the 1990s of barley malt into nearly every baked food (cereals, crackers, cookies) and of high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in beverages.

~
A person with Candida overgrowth may have only 2-3 of these symptoms, or may identify with many.
O
MENTAL ~ EMOTIONAL ~ NERVOUS SYSTEM:
~ Headaches and migraine headaches
~ Depression
~ Sleep problems — difficulty falling asleep, or waking up in the middle of the night with a mind that won’t calm down (typically between 1 and 3 am)
~ Irritability and confusion
~ Poor memory
~ Anxiety attacks, panic attacks
~ Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
~ Heart beating too fast or irregularly
~ Sexual problems — impotence or lack of desire, or excessive sexuality
~ Attention deficit, hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Dizziness
~ Numbness
~ Feeling of floating or not quite being in your body
~ Indecisiveness, difficulty organizing and cleaning messy areas
O
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM:
~ Cravings for sugar, chocolate, milk, cheese, vinegar, pickles, alcohol, bread, nuts or fruit
~ “Metabolic syndrome” which includes the following: large abdomen (“beer belly”), adult-onset diabetes, high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure
~ “Beer belly,” also called truncal obesity — excess weight centered around the abdomen
~ Acid reflux/GERD (heartburn)
~ Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
~ Bloating, flatulence or abdominal pain
~ Rectal itching
~ Constipation and/or diarrhea
~ Excessively thin or anorexic/bulimic
O
SKIN ~ EYES ~ HAIR:
~ Skin and nail fungal infections (current or past), including: athlete’s foot, vaginal yeast infections, fungal toenails, ringworm, jock itch, tinea versicolor or itchy eyelids
~ Skin problems like eczema, rashes, psoriasis
~ Prematurely graying hair
~ Pupils always dilated
~ Unusually green eyes, or eye color has turned greenish
O
IMMUNE DISORDERS:
~ Asthma and allergies
~ Recurring infections — colds, ears, bladder, sinus
~ Autoimmune disease (lupus, hypothyroidism, arthritis, others)
~ Penicillin allergy
O
WHOLE BODY:
~ Fatigue
~ Muscle or joint pain, fibromyalgia
~ Cold feet, cold hands, sometimes cold nose
~ Sweating, especially at night
~ Uncomfortable at any temperature
O
WOMEN’s HEALTH ISSUES:
~ Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
~ Endometriosis (chronic pelvic pain)
~ Infertility (female), some miscarriages, toxemia of pregnancy (preeclampsia)
O
SYMPTOMS SEEN PARTICULARLY IN CHILDREN ~ up to about 8 years old:
~ Early allergy to foods like milk
~ Infections as a baby
~ Child had or has frequent ear infections, tonsillitis, strep throat or bladder infections, especially if these infections were treated with antibiotics
~ Cravings for milk, cheese, yogurt, macaroni and cheese, or peanut butter
~ Asthma
~ “Drama king” or “drama queen” — complains quite vocally and often
~ Poor sleep patterns — difficulty going to sleep, sleeps too lightly or has frequent nightmares, and wakes up too early (or sometimes too late)
~ Too thin or overweight
~ Attention deficit with or without hyperactivity (ADD/ADHD)
~ Aggressive, poor social interactions, can’t stop moving, frequent fights or arguments, frequent crying
~ Autism
~ Pale complexion, dark circles under the eyes
O
Two points should be understood with regard to the above list of signs and symptoms of Candida overgrowth. First, while all of the symptoms listed are definitely seen in Candida patients and evidence indicates Candida causes or strongly contributes to the development of these problems, there are other contributing factors that can also bring about some of these problems (such as mercury or other metal toxicity, consistent excess electromagnetic field exposure, underlying viral infections, petrochemical exposure, etc.). Second, treatment for Candida alone will usually bring about significant improvement in these symptoms, but will not be adequate in all cases to restore health. Often additional treatments aimed at improving liver, adrenal or thyroid function, or correcting immune and allergic problems, are necessary to regain health.

~
BY: The clinical facts and observations concerning Candida overgrowth presented here come from the research and clinical experience of John E. Humiston, M.D., a family practice physician who has worked with over a thousand Candida patients.

Skeletal Fluorosis or ?

Posted in AGING, Fibromyalgia, FLUORIDE ~ SLOW CRIPPLER, POISONS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:19 pm by PCOSLady

SKELETAL FLUOROSIS

PCOS Lady:
A good friend alerted me to this a couple nights ago… I have concluded that all the toxins mix inside us along with “bad” parasites to create medical ailments, medical conditions, etc… to make the medical industry wealthy, us poor as we slowly are being killed!
~ The video narrated by Darlene is a highly informative with facts from the beginning of fluoride through the years…
*
Listen to the video, Darlene had symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis, and so much more…

http://thearrowsoftruth.com/tag/skeletal-fluorosis/

Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, phosphate fertilizer industries, has an amazing capacity to combine and increase the potency of other toxic materials, and it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone and dental matter. It damages the liver and kidneys, weakens the immune system, possibly leading to cancer, creates symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia, and performs as a Trojan Horse to carry aluminum across the blood brain barrier. Also, the pineal gland can become calcified from fluorides, inhibiting it’s function as a melatonin producer, which is needed for sound, deep sleep….
~ * ~
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skeletal_fluorosis

Skeletal fluorosis is a bone disease caused by excessive consumption of fluoride. In advanced cases, skeletal fluorosis causes pain and damage to bones and joints.

http://www.medicalook.com/diseases_images/bone-disease2.jpg

Skeletal Fluorosis Phases

Osteosclerotic Phase ~ Ash Concentration (mgF/kg) ~ Symptoms and Signs
Normal Bone: 500 to 1,000 Normal
~
Preclinical Phase: 3,500 to 5,500 Asymptomatic; slight radiographically-detectable increases in bone mass
~
Clinical Phase I: 6,000 to 7,000 Sporadic pain; stiffness of joints; osteosclerosis of pelvis and vertebral spine
~
Clinical Phase II: 7,500 to 9,000 Chronic joint pain; arthritic symptoms; slight calcification of ligaments’ increased osteosclerosis and cancellous bones; with/without osteoporosis of long bones
Phase III: Crippling Fluorosis 8,400 Limitation of joint movement; calcification of ligaments of neck vertebral column; crippling deformities of the spine and major joints; muscle wasting; neurological defects/compression of spinal cord

Symptoms and Side Effects

Symptoms are mainly promoted in the bone structure. Due to a high fluorine concentration in the body, the bone is hardened and thus less elastic, resulting in an increased frequency of fractures. Other symptoms include thickening of the bone structure and accumulation of bone tissue, which both contribute to impaired joint mobility. Most patients suffering from skeletal fluorosis show side effects from the high fluorine dose such as ruptures of the stomach lining and nausea. Fluorine can also damage the thyroid gland leading to hyperparatthyroidism, the uncontrolled secretion of parathyroid hormones. These hormones regulate calcium concentration in the body. An elevated parathyroid hormone concentration results in a depletion of calcium in bone structures and thus a higher calcium concentration in the blood. As a result, bone flexibility decreases making the bone more amenable to fractures.
~
FACTS:
~ Skeletal fluorosis is endemic in areas with high concentrations of fluoride in the drinking water, but it is rare in other parts of the world.
~ Brewed tea has one of the highest fluoride contents among beverages in the United States.

Skeletal Fluorosis—A Real Danger of Excessive Fluoride Consumption

The harmful effects of chronic fluoride exposure on bone are well established. Since the 1930s it has been known that fluoride intake causes excessive bone growth, which can result in joint pain, bone pain, and stiffness. These symptoms are difficult to distinguish from arthritis. Other symptoms indicative of early clinical stage skeletal fluorosis include:

~ Burning, prickling, and tingling in your limbs
~ Muscle weakness
~ Chronic fatigue
~ Gastrointestinal disorders
~ Reduced appetite and weight loss

The second clinical stage of skeletal fluorosis is characterized by:

~ Stiff joints and/or constant pain in your bones; brittle bones; and osteosclerosis
~ Anemia
~ Calcification of tendons, or ligaments of ribs and pelvis
~ Osteoporosis in the long bones
~ Bony spurs may also appear on your limb bones, especially around your knee, elbow, and on the surface of tibia and ulna

In advanced skeletal fluorosis (called crippling skeletal fluorosis), your extremities become weak and moving your joints difficult, and your vertebrae partially fuse together, effectively crippling you. You have a heightened risk of developing problems from even mild exposure to fluoride, such as bone fractures, if you:

~ Are elderly
~ Are deficient in calcium, magnesium, and/or vitamin C
~ Have cardiovascular problems
~ Have kidney problems

Evidence Of Fraud In The Matter Of Water Fluoridation by Darlene Sherrell

Is your town fluoridated? Are they considering adding fluoride to the water supply? If so, you should know that the CDC recommends fluoridation based on the Institute of Medicine’s fraudulent interpretation of their own references.

Increases in fluoride intake from a variety of sources have made water fluoridation the source of an overdose. Children who live in non-fluoridated areas are ingesting just as much fluoride as they did in 1 ppm fluoridated areas sixty years ago. Adults in fluoridated areas are ingesting enough fluoride to cause the arthritic symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning. [National Research Council – Health Effects of Ingested Fluoride, 1993 & Drinking Water and Health, 1977]

Adding fluoride to the water supply will not improve dental health – but it will produce more cases of disfiguring mottled enamel.

The information below (on site post) is proof of either fraud or incompetence on the part of the CDC with regard to their recommendation for water fluoridation.

Symptoms of chronic fluoride poisoning

The United States Public Health Service (USDHHS) describes the early stages in the progression of fluoride poisoning as “sporadic pain and stiffness of joints; chronic joint pain, arthritic symptoms, slight calcification of ligaments, increased osteosclerosis of cancellous bones with or without osteoporosis of long bones.” The advanced crippling stage is described as “limitation of joint movement, calcification of ligaments in the neck and vertebral column, crippling deformities of the spine and major joints, muscle wasting, and neurological defects with compression of the spinal cord.” [Review of Fluoride Benefits and Risks, (1991) page 46]

Safety Studies?

Catch 22 . . .
There are no diagnostic methods capable of determining whether or not a person’s arthritic symptoms were caused by excess fluoride. Researchers and health care providers cannot confirm or report suspected cases of chronic fluoride poisoning until the condition reaches the advanced crippling stage. The claim for safety is based on the absence of reports which would require non-existent diagnostic methods.

MERCURY POISONING SYMPTOMS
~ ~ ~
http://www.life123.com/health/first-aid/food-poisoning/mercury-poisoning-symptoms.shtml
~
By: Aysha Schurman
Mercury poisoning symptoms are rather hard to ignore. The poison will affect the entire body, not just a single area. The exact symptoms can change from person to person, but left untreated, severe mercury poisoning can be deadly.
~
What Is Mercury?
Mercury is a naturally occurring metal that exists all around us. It can be highly dangerous in large quantities and poisonous to most living organisms. Mercury can be found in the air, water and soil. It is silver colored, but odorless and tasteless. There are three forms of mercury that can cause poisoning: elemental, inorganic and organic.
~
Mercury Poisoning Symptoms
In large quantities, mercury is deadly. It not only causes many severe symptoms, it can compromise the immune system. So in addition to symptoms from the poisoning, you can contract other diseases and other symptoms due to the mercury poisoning. This sometimes makes mercury poisoning hard to identify and treat.
What mercury poisoning symptoms you present can depend entirely on what type of mercury you were exposed to. Symptoms can range from loss of teeth, hives or fever to rashes, skin lesions or a metallic taste.
~
Psychological disturbances: ~ mood swings ~ anxiety ~ anger ~ depression ~ memory loss ~ irritability
Neurological disturbances: ~ dizziness ~ twitching ~ headaches ~ tremors
Gastrointestinal disturbances: ~ diarrhea ~ stomach cramps ~ other gastrointestinal problems
Respiratory disturbances: ~ emphysema ~ shallow breathing ~ a constant cough
Cardiovascular disturbances: ~ chest pains ~ weak pulse ~ an irregular heartbeat
Basic sense disturbances: ~ impaired vision ~ speech ~ hearing ~ coordination
Oral disturbances: ~ loss of teeth ~ gum discoloration ~ gum bleeding ~ a metallic taste
~
Mercury Poisoning Treatment
The exact treatment needed for mercury poisoning depends on the type of mercury you are exposed to. At the very least you will need to visit your doctor if you suspect you have mercury poisoning. It’s likely you will be admitted to the hospital for several different treatments and medications if the mercury poisoning is anything other than very minor.

QUOTES:
“Mercury poisoning is impaired oxidation. It’s like having an invisible cord around your neck that’s strangling you, but you can’t feel that the cord is there. (The strangulations) is biochemical, but the principal is the same: mercury reduces the amount of oxygen that you get.”
Dr. Alfred Zamm, M.D., F.A.C.P. “…
~
“Slow healing” is in part a result of zinc deficiency. Mercury interferes with zinc metabolism.”
“Chronic fatigue” is a result of insufficient oxygen to the cells. Mercury interferes with the ability of hemoglobin to transport oxygen” and “…..ringing in the ears” is related to manganese deficiency. Mercury interferes with manganese metabolism.”
It’s All In Your Head, by Hal A. Huggins, DDS
~
“Mercury is associated with 258 different symptoms and copper with over 100. Almost all my patients who had their mercury-based fillings removed show moderate to dramatic improvement in their health in usually less than one month.”
Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac of Santa Monica California (from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg.
~
“Research has demonstrated that the body’s tissues – especially in the brain, kidneys, jaw, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, and liver -absorb and store mercury.”
Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Environmental Illness, by Burton Goldberg
~
“After he underwent a root canal at the age of 15, Earl suffered severe fatigue and anxiety. At 28, he had a nervous breakdown. At the age of 32, suffering from fatigue, anger, anxiety, back problems, low blood sugar, nervousness, ringing in his ears, concentration loss, and prematurely graying hair, he consulted acupuncturist. Dr. David J. Nickel, O.M.D., L.Ac. of Santa Monica, California performed a mercury vapor analysis on Earl’s teeth and found that the level of toxic fumes from Earl’s six mercury amalgam fillings was 42 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency’s maximum allowable limit.
He was put on supplements and there was significant improvement in his metabolic rate and blood sugar levels, he had all six mercury amalgams and his root canal tooth removed. Earl said, “I don’t remember when I have ever felt so good.”

Mercury poisoning: Are you affected?
~
FACTS:
Mercury amalgams (silver fillings)
* Most mercury amalgams are composed of approximately 50% mercury, 35% silver and 15% tin, copper and/or zinc. * Mercury is the major ingredient amounting to about one-half gram per amalgam. In the words of Professor Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, that is a “colossal” amount of mercury in scientific terms—as much, in fact, as is in a thermometer. A teenager with six fillings has six mercury thermometers worth of mercury in his or her mouth.
~
It should be noted that the more copper present in the amalgam, the more mercury vapor is released proportionally.
• Mercury atoms are continually released into the mouth with 80% absorbed by the lungs.
• Each and every amalgam daily releases on the order of 10 micrograms of mercury into the body (i.e. 3,000,000,000,000,000 mercury atoms per day).
• More than 2/3 of the excretable mercury in humans is derived from amalgams.
• People exposed to mercury on a sustained basis are at risk of lowered fertility.
• Mercury crosses the maternal placenta into the tissue of a developing fetus.
• Mercury immediately and continually challenges kidney function.
• Mercury can enhance the prevalence of multiple antibiotic resistant intestinal bacteria.
• Dentists, who collectively use 300 metric tons of mercury in amalgams each year and who often have two to five times the typical concentration of mercury in their urine, experience subtle neural and behavioral anomalies. 2,3

Vaccines
A very controversial source of mercury is vaccines, second only to mercury amalgams in terms of primary sources of mercury toxicity. Thimerosal (49.6% ethyl mercury) has been used as a preservative and adjuvant in most vaccines since 1931. After the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) went into effect in October 1,1988, citizens who were injured by a vaccine or vaccines could not sue the manufacturer directly but had to first file a claim with VICP.

Are Parasites Making You Fat? or just Slowly Killing You…?
~
Symptoms of Parasites:
The word parasite comes from Greek meaning “one who eats off the table of another.” Parasites eat and live off the food we consume, even our health supplements. They leave us the scraps. They often make us feel that we are not getting the nutrition from our food or that Something is wrong or missing…
~
~ INABILITY TO GAIN OR LOSE WEIGHT
~ CHRONIC CANDIDA
~ YEAST INFECTIONS
~ CHRONIC SINUS OR EAR INFECTIONS
~ URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
~ ITCHY EARS OR NOSE

~ DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS
~ GAS AND BLOATING
~ DIARRHEA

FACT:
Here is a staggering statistic: the World Heath Organization reported that about 25% of the world’s population is infected with roundworm. These parasites can grow to 13 inches inside the intestine and can lay as many as 300,000 eggs in a single day. Once the larvae hatches it only takes about 2 months before they are reproducing like mad. You’ll have many of the same symptoms as the hookworms including ‘flu like’ symptoms and abdominal pain. If you get a swarm of 13 inchers, your intestines will probably become blocked at which point you’ll wish for nothing short of death. Also if you start vomiting be on the lookout! They have been known to be present in the toilet after vomiting or a nice hardy #2.

FLOATERS ~ Eye Floaters:
~ Eye floaters are those tiny spots, specks, flecks and “cobwebs” that drift aimlessly around in your field of vision. While annoying, ordinary eye floaters and spots are very common and usually aren’t cause for alarm.
~ When Are Eye Floaters and Flashes a Medical Emergency? If you see a shower of floaters and spots, sometimes accompanied by light flashes, you should seek medical attention immediately. Clumps occur when the vitreous gel begins to liquefy or shrink, usually with aging, and detaches from the retina.
~ For some people, floaters are clumpy; for others, they’re stringy. They may be light or dark. What you see is actually the shadows cast by clumps of vitreous gel when light shines past them onto the retina.
~ The sudden appearance of these symptoms could mean that the vitreous is pulling away from your retina or that the retina itself is becoming dislodged from the inner back of the eye that contains blood, nutrients and oxygen vital to healthy function. When the retina is torn, vitreous can invade the opening and push out the retina — leading to a detachment.

Melanoma Surgeries – 90% Unnecessary

Posted in CANCER, VITAMINS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 7:01 pm by PCOSLady

PCOS Lady:
2nd opinions are important! Common sense here is too!
~ I know a man who made a paste of peroxide and baking soda, applied it 3x’s a day to his cancer moles… Took 2 weeks and they were gone!
~ Met a man who had a 4″ skin scar, nasty looking from having a mole removed by a skin doctor!
~ I prefer the peroxide paste!
~ Vitamin D plays a hefty part in us warding off medical problems and in healing!
….. Have your Vitamin D level checked at times through your life!

90 Percent of Melanoma Surgeries are Unnecessary, Study Finds
~
Story at-a-glance
~
A new report claims that 90 percent of melanoma surgeries are actually unnecessary removals of benign lesions, raising questions about the accuracy of the “melanoma epidemic.” The report highlights the necessity to get a second, and perhaps even a third opinion from a specialized clinic before going under the scalpel.
~
The American Academy of Dermatology recently made the bizarre claim that “UV rays are not very efficient in creating vitamin D in the skin. However, no corroborating evidence has been produced to back up this provocative statement UVB exposure has a number of other health effects unrelated to vitamin D production, including enhancement of mood and energy, melatonin regulation, suppression of MS symptoms, and the treatment of skin diseases.
~
Exposure to UVB light may also be protective against melanoma (the most lethal form of skin cancer), whereas UVA radiation is associated with skin damage
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
A new report in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology1 claims that 90 percent of melanoma patients may not only have had their skin lesions removed unnecessarily, but may also have actually increased their morbidity risk by doing so.
~
The study looked at 300,215 melanoma excision cases that occurred over 10 years at participating clinics and dermatopathology units in 13 countries.
~
As reported by The Tanning Blog:2
~
“The purpose of the survey was to investigate the relationship between necessary excision of malignant melanoma and unnecessary removals of benign lesions. In non-specialized clinics the number of unnecessary removals was as much as 30 times higher than the necessary excisions. In specialized clinics, the ratio sank to less than 10 times.
~
This means that in some dermatologists’ clinics, 90 out of 100 ‘melanoma-victims’ were misled to have a piece of their skin sliced away. When extrapolating the average figures in the survey to one million American victims, as many as 900,000 may have suffered needlessly.”
~
The lead author of the report attributed the unnecessary excisions to an increased awareness of patients who see anti-sun promotions such as “melanoma awareness” campaigns and run into the clinics demanding treatment.
~
Unfortunately, what this means is that while the melanoma epidemic appears to be real, based on surgical statistics, it actually paints a misleading picture since about 90 percent of “melanoma cases” are not real melanoma. The report highlights the necessity to get a second, and perhaps even a third opinion from a specialized clinic before going under the scalpel.

UV Rays Not Effective in Creating Vitamin D, Dermatologists Say
~
The issue of tanning can be confusing to say the least, as there’s no shortage of scare tactics employed. Information presented at American Academy of Dermatology’s Summer Academy Meeting.3
~
Bruce A. Brod, MD, FAAD, clinical associate professor of dermatology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia gave an overview of which is posted on the American Academy of Dermatology site, makes the following bizarre claim:
“The tanning industry… touts UVA as a good source of vitamin D. However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued a consent order prohibiting the Indoor Tanning Association from making false claims about the health benefits of indoor tanning, and dermatologists point out that UV rays are not very efficient in creating vitamin D in the skin.4
~
In addition, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends that the public obtain vitamin D safely from a healthy diet that includes food naturally rich in vitamin D, foods and beverages fortified with vitamin D, and/or dietary supplements, rather than by sun exposure or indoor tanning, which can cause skin cancer. ” [Emphasis mine}
~
Say what?!
~
Who in their right mind would claim UV rays are ineffective at producing vitamin D in your skin? It is in fact the ONLY way to make your skin produce vitamin D! Oral supplementation does not make your skin produce it, and therefore may not provide identical health benefits as if it was produced by your own body in response to UV rays either from sunlight or a sun lamp. (On a side note, I’m not sure if the statement that UVA rays is touted as a good source of vitamin D by the tanning industry is a typo or not… It’s actually the UVB rays in tanning lamps — although they produce both, just like natural sunlight — that are responsible for vitamin D production in your skin.)
~
This is such a shocking proclamation it deserves closer scrutiny, lest people start getting even more confused about the role of sun exposure for their health. Unfortunately, based on the references listed, the matter gets even more convoluted, because when you follow the reference for this claim, it leads to a Federal Trade Commission notice, dated January 26, 2010,5 detailing the charges against the Indoor Tanning Association for “making false health and safety claims about indoor tanning.”
~
Reading through this FTC notice, there’s no further trail leading to any information about the direct claim that UV rays are inefficient at creating vitamin D in your skin… However, an FTC Consumer Alert brochure,6 the link to which can be found on the FTC notice, does state:
~
“Myths and Reality — Here are some claims commonly made about indoor tanning – and the facts: ‘Indoor tanning is a safe way to increase vitamin D levels.’ Vitamin D has many roles in human health. For example, it is essential for promoting good bone health. While UVB radiation helps your body produce vitamin D, you don’t need a tan to get that benefit. In fact, 10 to 15 minutes of unprotected natural sun exposure on your face and hands 2 to 3 times a week during the summer gives you a healthy dose of vitamin D. You also can get vitamin D from food: good sources include low-fat milk, salmon, tuna, and fortified orange juice.”
~
Is this the source for that preposterous claim? In reading through the page-and-a-half brochure, it’s the only statement that is relevant to the claim. In either case, the information published on the American Academy of Dermatology’s site is grossly misleading, as it either:
~ does not provide a proper source for the remarkable statement that UV rays are “not very efficient in creating vitamin D in your skin,” or is in direct contradiction to the cited source, which clearly admits that UVB radiation helps your body produce vitamin D (you just don’t need a tan to get the benefit)
~
Exposing Hands and Face to Sun Twice a Week is Nowhere Near Enough
~
It’s also important to note that exposing just your face and hands for 10-15 minutes, twice or three times a week (as recommended in the FTC Consumer Alert on tanning), is NOT going to provide you with sufficient vitamin D to achieve the benefits that thousands of studies have now shown to be the case. Not even close!
~
First of all, it’s important to realize that when it comes to vitamin D, it’s your serum level that matters — not your dosage, whether you’re measuring dosage as time spent in the sun, or the oral dose of a vitamin D supplement. So the most important message is that you need to get whatever dosage is required to obtain a therapeutic level of vitamin D in your blood.
~
vitamin d levels
The optimal vitamin D level has recently been raised to 50-70 ng/ml, and when treating cancer or heart disease, as high as 70-100 ng/ml.
~
Carole Baggerly, the director and founder of an organization called GrassrootsHealth, which is primarily focused on creating awareness about the profound importance of vitamin D for optimal health, actually conducted tests to determine just how much sun exposure she needed in order to reach therapeutic levels of vitamin D.
~
“Even in San Diego where I live, when they measured my [vitamin D] level it was 18 ng/ml. When we did a scientific test of what it’s going to take to get enough sun in San Diego… at my age – age is a factor in how much you absorb – we came to a test conclusion that it was going take 15 to 20 minutes a day in the prime time of UV, between 10 am and 2 pm, each and every day… with 40 percent of my body exposed,” she says.

Sun Exposure: Benefits Beyond D Production
~
While discussions about the health benefits from sun exposure typically center around vitamin D, which your skin produces in response to UVB rays, UVB exposure actually has a number of other health effects unrelated to vitamin D production — whether it’s from the sun or a safe tanning bed.
~
Carole Baggerly agrees that sun exposure is ideal not just for raising your vitamin D levels, but also because it may provide other health benefits that we simply don’t fully understand yet. It’s quite possible however, that lack of regular sun exposure is at the heart of many of our current health issues. New evidence presented in the April-June issue of Dermato Endocrinology7 confirms that exposure to the sun in appropriate and measured time frames has a number of health benefits unrelated to vitamin D production:
~
“Solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation has been used since ancient times to treat various diseases. This has a scientific background in the fact that a large number of molecules (chrromophores) in different layers of the skin interacts with and absorbs UV,” the report states.
~
Health benefits from sun exposure, besides vitamin D production, include:
~
~ Enhancing mood and energy through the release of endorphins
~ Protecting against and suppressing symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS)
~ Treating skin diseases, such as acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and scleroderma. UV radiation also enhances skin barrier functions
~ Inducing nitric oxide (NO), which helps protect your skin against UV damage and offers cardiovascular protection, promotes wound healing through its antimicrobial effect, and has some anti-cancer activity
~ Melatonin regulation through the “third eye” of the pineal gland photoreceptors
~ Relieving fibromyalgia pain
~ Standard treatment for tuberculosis 100 years ago, long before the advent of antibiotics
~ Treating neonatal jaundice
~ Can be used to sterilize your armpits and eliminate the cause of most body odor.
~ Treating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
~ Synchronizing important biorhythms through sunlight entering your eye and striking your retina
~ Regulating body temperature
~ Protecting against melanoma and decreasing mortality from it
~ May be effective in treating T Cell lymphoma
~
Why I Advise Using the Sun or Safe Tanning Bed
~
Another article written by Richard J. Wurtman,8 while over 40 years old, still contains loads of interesting information about the health benefits of sunlight. If you have any interest, I strongly recommend you download this classic, superbly written 11-page PDF from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This article reveals the benefits of sun exposure and not merely swallowing a vitamin D tablet or capsule.
SITE: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/03/26/maximizing-vitamin-d-exposure.aspx
~
I am beyond convinced that you are missing out big time if you strictly rely on vitamin D supplements, (or worse, fortified foods) rather than sunshine. If you are on the fence about this or don’t believe me, please read Dr. Wurtman’s classic article.
~
Just as an example, he points out the role of sunlight on synchronizing the hormonal rhythms of your body. Melatonin, for example, which is synthesized by your pineal gland, is profoundly affected by light and dark, and proper exposure to bright sun during the day is important for maintaining your internal rhythm. Melatonin, as you may recall, is also a potent antioxidant with cancer-fighting properties.
~
Sensible Sun Exposure May Be Protective Against Melanoma
~
While you’re not likely to receive this information from dermatologists and cancer groups, there’s evidence showing that exposure to UVB light is actually protective against melanoma. For example, indoor workers actually have a higher risk of melanoma than outdoor workers, as documented in The Lancet,9 suggesting that chronic sun exposure can indeed have a protective effect.
~
Another study in Medical Hypotheses10 suggested that indoor workers may have increased rates of melanoma because they’re exposed to sunlight through windows, and only UVA light, unlike UVB, can pass through window glass. (While UVB light gives you that tanned look and causes your skin to produce vitamin D, UVA rays are the ones associated with skin damage and skin cancer.)
~
Since indoor workers, who get three to nine times less solar UV exposure than outdoor workers, are missing out on exposure to the beneficial UVB rays, they will have lower levels of vitamin D and therefore miss out on the “built-in” cancer protection offered by regular exposure to the sun, or a sun lamp.
~
The study even noted that indoor UV actually breaks down vitamin D3 formed after outdoor UVB exposure, which would therefore make vitamin D3 deficiency and melanoma risk even worse. A number of associations between regular sun exposure and decreased melanoma risk can be found in the medical literature. For example, an Italian study published in the European Journal of Cancer in 2008,11 confirms and supports earlier studies showing improved survival rates in melanoma patients who were exposed to sunlight more frequently in the time before their melanoma was diagnosed.
~
Sensible Sun Exposure: How to Maximize Benefits While Minimizing Risks
~
While sun exposure is your best source for vitamin D, it’s important to understand that not all sun exposure will allow for vitamin D production, and perhaps this is another possible explanation for the utterly bizarre statement that UV rays are inefficient at producing vitamin D in your skin… However, makinghis kind of generalization amounts to nothing short of scientific ignorance.
~
Here’s how it works:
Sunlight is composed of about 1500 wavelengths, but the only wavelength that makes your body produce vitamin D are UVB-rays, when they hit exposed skin. Now, the UVB-rays from the sun must pass through the atmosphere in significant concentration and intensity to cause your skin to make vitamin D.
~
This obviously does not occur in the winter for most of us, but the sun’s rays are also impeded during a fair amount of the year for people living in temperate climates. In fact for about half the US more than half the year the UVB concentration is not sufficient to generate vitamin D, no matter how much skin is exposed at the height of the sun level.
~
Due to the physics and wavelength of UVB rays, they will only penetrate the atmosphere when the sun is above an angle of about 50° from the horizon. When the sun is lower than 50°, the ozone layer reflects the UVB-rays but let through the longer UVA-rays.
~
So how do you know if you have entered into the summer season and into the time of year, for your location, where enough UVB can actually penetrate the atmosphere to allow for vitamin D production in your skin?
~
The first step is to determine the latitude and longitude of your location. You can easily do this on Google Earth, or if you are in the U.S. you can use the TravelMath Latitude Longitude Calculator to find your latitude and longitude. Once you have obtained that you can go to the U.S. Navy site to calculate a table to determine the times and days of the year that the sun is above 50 degrees from the horizon.
SITE: http://www.travelmath.com/cities/
SITE: http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/AltAz.php
~
Translated to the date and time of some places on the globe, it means for example: In my hometown of Chicago, the UVB rays are not potentially present until March 25, and by September 16th it is not possible to produce any vitamin D from the sun in Chicago. Please understand it is still only theoretically possible to get UVB rays between those dates. If it happens to be cloudy or raining, the clouds will also block the UVB rays, preventing vitamin D production that particular day. For a more detailed understanding of this, please view the following video, and/or read through the corresponding article.
SITE: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/03/26/maximizing-vitamin-d-exposure.aspx
~
Even Easier if You Have Apple System
~
Alternatively, if you have an iPhone or iPad you can download a free app called D Minder, which will make all the calculations for you. It was made by an Apple developer who was motivated to simplify the process after he watched the video above.
~
From a health perspective, it doesn’t make much sense to expose your skin to the sun when it is lower than 50 degrees above the horizon because you will not receive any valuable UVB rays, but you will expose yourself to the more dangerous and potentially deadly UVA rays. UVA’s have a longer wavelength than UVB and can more easily penetrate the ozone layer and other obstacles (like clouds and pollution) on their way from the sun to the earth. UVA is what radically increases your risk of skin cancer and photoaging of your skin. So while it can give you a tan, unless the companion UVB rays are available you’re likely doing more harm than good and should probably stay out of the sun to protect your skin.
~
During the times of the year when UVB rays are not present where you live you have two options: either use a safe tanning bed or oral vitamin D3.

Parasites and Pollution = Sick

Posted in PARASITES, WAKE UP FYI tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 8:51 pm by PCOSLady

DR HULDA R. CLARK
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
~
This idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her. (Read about this later in this post)
~
PCOS Lady:
This woman spent 30 years of her life to tell you the truths(s) on why you get sick and are sick! I feel everyone needs to know the factual truth(s)… I hope you gain a new knowledge on the medical industry and why certain things are not done, exposed, the red tape, the road blocks we encounter, etc…
~ I will keep adding to this post as i research her findings…
~ QUESTION your doctor(s)…
~ SYMPTOMS COUNT!!!!!
~
FACT:
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease control nearly 100 MILLION Americans are infected with internal parasites like pinworms, whipworms, and tapeworms just to name a few… many of which are passed from their pets to their owners.
~
Are Parasites Making YOU Sick?
~
* Do you suffer with a list of mysterious aches, pains and illnesses?
* Does your doctor brush off your concerns… or doesn’t seem to have answers?
* Are you taking prescription drugs for a condition… but see little benefit?
* Are you frustrated that your doctor treats the PAIN… instead of playing detective to eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of your ongoing discomfort?
* Has your doctor ever ONCE discussed parasites or toxins with you?
~
Because here’s the thing:
Just because modern medicine has decided to IGNORE the problem of parasites and environmental toxins doesn’t mean they’re not invading our bodies and making us sick.
~
Your body has been trying to rid itself of parasites and pollutants your entire life!
You’ve even seen the signs:
Your body makes stones… mucous secretions… toxic dumpsites. It uses swelling… inflammation… cysts… tumours… mystery pain… headaches… diarrhea… constipation… poor digestion… weight gain… water retention… eczema… psoriasis… warts… acne… insomnia… extreme fatigue… PMS… bad breath… unusual body odour… cramps… stomach pains… joint pain… and the list goes on!
~
At first, when you’re younger, these symptoms are a nuisance. You might just feel a bit ‘off.’ Maybe your doctor has even told you these things are ‘normal’ and ‘of little concern.’
~
But as time progresses, and your body has more and more trouble fighting off the invaders, you begin to feel really sick.
~
Your list of seemingly unconnected symptoms begin to snowball. And your health issues start to get serious. Really serious.
~
What has your body been trying to tell you?

Look At Some Of Dr. Clark’s Other Parasite Discoveries:
~
* Those sick with colds are ALWAYS polluted with mycotoxins (the extremely toxic substances made by food molds)!
* Everyone with cancer has the human intestinal fluke in their liver – but no one else does!
* Everyone with diabetes has the pancreatic fluke of cattle in their pancreas – but few others do.
* Everyone with environmental illness tested positive for Fasciola (sheep liver fluke) in their liver!

* Everyone with asthma tested positive for Ascaris in their lungs!
… And the list goes on and on.

Dr. Hulda Clark Uncovered A Startling Truth:
There Are Only 2 Real Health Problems:
That’s right, according to Dr. Clark, no matter how long and confusing your list of symptoms may be…
… From joint pain to chronic inflammation to irritable bowel syndrome or eczema…
~
Your issues of pain and illness can typically be traced back to 2 problems:
* Parasites and/or Pollution. *
~
And during her 30 years of clinical research and patient study, she concluded:
~
• If you can get rid of the parasites from your body…
• And if you can prevent them from re-invading by eliminating pollution and toxins from your environment…

~
… Then you can rid your body of disease and pain and restore health!
~
Sound crazy? Not convinced parasites could be at the root of your chronic pain issues?
I must tell you, I wasn’t a believer to start, either. Beyond discussions of hand washing to prevent colds and the spread of e-coli, when do we EVER talk about parasites?
(Outside of deworming our pets???)
~
But, in fact, Dr. Clark found that every person suffering with a ‘mysterious illness’ or ‘incurable pain’ was ALWAYS infected with some parasite or pollutant!
~
Including those suffering with joint pain, arthritis and inflammation!
~
In fact, she found that all her patients suffering with joint pain (in any form) were typically infected with as many as 4 specific types of worms!
~
And she found that exposure to three specific toxins as well as certain solvents in your home environment made you vulnerable to these parasites by lowering your body’s immunity and allowing the tiny larvae to infest and live within your muscles and joints…
… While opening the door for invasion by other parasites, bacteria and viruses, too!

Stop Being Held Hostage By Your Doctor
~
Dr. Clark said it best…
~
“Since the beginning of time, the sick have been held hostage by doctors and healers who surround themselves with mystery as they use herbs, chemicals and all manners of mysterious remedies to ‘cure’ and help the sick recover…
… And this mystery is used to justify the extraordinary costs of your diagnosis and healing.”

~
Dr. Clark was actually advised to patent her medical inventions.
She never did. Instead, she believed that her knowledge should be readily, freely available to whomever needed it.
She was on a mission to bring the world out of the dark ages of medicine and illness. And to learn the true causes of infection and disease.
She was keen to usher in a new age of disease-free living.
And so, to continue her legacy, I believe…

Dr. Clark Was Falsely And Unjustly Accused,
In My Opinion, Of Being A ‘Quack’
Dr. Clark was harassed.
Arrested.
(Jailed at the age of 71, and held without bail for more than 2 weeks!)
And then finally driven out of the country into Mexico, where she fled and continued to practice against all odds.
~
Why? Well, you can probably guess…
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
So this idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her.
It wasn’t a fair fight.
~
And even now that Dr. Clark is gone (she died in September 2009), there is STILL an insidious public relations machine that continues to pump out slanderous information, painting her as a quack and fraud of monstrous proportions.

Magnesium ~ Epsom Salts

MAGNESIUM ~ EPSOM SALTS

http://www.ehow.com/how_4887228_epsom-salt-number-of-ways.html
~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.
~
Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?
~
Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/12/17/magnesium-benefits.aspx?e_cid=20121217_DNL_art_1
~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…

Top 100+ Misdiagnosed Diseases

MISDIAGNOSED
~
PCOS Lady:
~
I have a real issue with doctors and medical personnel today…
Most lack common sense, the right training, the dedication for caring, the thirst to know, the desire in caring people get well!
~
Doctors take an oath to 1st do no harm then to prevent disease where they can… The oath has been changed three times over the years, seems to their benefit… But 1st do no harm is still listed!
~
Doctors: (most doctors)
~ not being properly tested on the human body functioning as a whole…
~ not completing their internships…
~ not treating the cause just caring to treat symptoms… (new symptom = another drug, etc…)
~ not looking outside the listed treatments for new and alternative ways…
~
Drug companies know there will be more over medication, misdiagnosed, not diagnosed and malpractice going on due to doctors not completing their internships cause of demand today!
~ Malpractice attorneys are real busy and winning today!
~ Those firms are seeking physicians and physician assistants to be expert witnesses, etc… (Current and retired)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT!
~
All your symptoms count… your medical history counts! Having a doctor that knows and actually cares are crucial in getting a proper diagnosis… “YOU” have the right to a second opinion! Your insurance should cover this for you…
~
Many doctors today are not considering all your symptoms!
~ Write your symptoms down…
~ Keep track of when they start, how long, what happens, what triggered them, etc…
~ RESEARCH your symptoms online… Sites, blogs, forums, research documents, etc…
~ Educate yourself on your medical issue(s) and condition(s)…

How many of you have been tested for parasites???

Poster: By Ree… | Oct 16, 2008

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia over a year ago, but I just found out I have a rare parasite infection. I had a special comprehensive stool test ordered by my naturopathic practitioner. This was NOT a routine stool test ordered by a doctor which often misses many kinds of parasite infections. Parasite infections can mimic fibro and cause chronic fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, irritable bowel, skin rashes and itching, joint aches, muscle aches, food sensitives, etc.
~
If you are diagosed with Fibromyalgia and find yourself getting sicker and sicker like I was, you absolutely need to have a comprehensive test for parasite infections. Parasites are much more common than people realize and many doctors don’t routinely test for them. Individuals with Fibromyalgia are even more susceptible to parasite infections than the normal, healthy person. My doctors, including my rheumatologist, didn’t think to test me for parasites even though I had EVERY symptom of a parasite infection and I am wasting away and one step away from the hospital. If you want more information on the test I had done, send me a private message.

Thank you for posting this. I remember when Dr. OZ was on the Oprah Winfrey show talking about parasites and how the majority of Americans have had them at one time or another. For those of us who are chronically ill… we are more susceptible to parasite infections. I don’t know why western medicine practitioners don’t talk about parasite infections and why you have to go to a Naturopathic physician to address these problems. (or so it seems).

I suffer from multiple problems that I recently concluded were related to parasite(s), either singular or plural. IF you google on parasites and parasite cleanse you may be shocked to find out that when you had worms as a kid and drank some orange liquid or whatever, it wasn’t the only time you had parasites, or maybe ever will come in contact with them. Anti-biotics are often given to people rid the body of all bacteria, but funny thing is people still get sick sometimes more sick, some people have even died from anti-biotics, simply because getting rid of all bacteria is a bad idea. Pro-biotics replenish good bacteria which becomes depleted from overgrowth of candida (yeast) or other parasites that leech into your stomach from city water, meat not well cooked, even from having animals around, and hospitals etc. But sometimes even probiotics are not good enough, and the body starts to need some hardcore anti-bacterial action that wont destroy the good bacteria thats stil fighting to stay alive and keep your immunity up. For some time i’ve had serious stomach indigestion coupled with esophagul spasms, heart palpitations from constant acid reflux, muscle twitching on my left side related to this stomach problem, brain fog, mood swings, even paranoia which at one point i thought i was hearing voices. This may seem funny and even strange but if you do some research you’ll find there are various parasites that can cause all these problems and more including may neuroligical disorders that can end up affecting the whole body. Though the evidence is inconclusive there are some people now claiming that ALL disorders can be related to bad bacterial (parasitic) overgrowth of some kind or another. Just for one example check out http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/060803_tgondii_culture.html that talks about a finding of a parasite carried by cats that can lead to anxiety, depression, and even schizophrenia. But there are many more examples. Anyway, I didn’t know what to believe then I decided to start taking a parasite cleanse (you can usually by a kit at health food stores or health food sections of grocery stores) and even though the first little while was intense as my body was healing, i soon found that most of my problems were diminishing and i was feeling better than ever. Unfortunately, I didn’t do the cleanse the direct way (To avoid all yeast, and sugars) and when I had stopped taking this cleanse ALL my problems returned. So I discovered first hand that all my health problems which came upon me quite suddenly were indeed related to some sort of parasitic attack. And for those people who don’t think that they will get parasites cause they’re really healthy, you should know that even before I somehow became infected I was eating very healthfully, avoiding all refined foods and junk foods, and eating tons of vegetables and what not. But at some time of weakness and not to mention at one point living with about 5 cats in the city, my immune system became weak and BAM i got hit with all these health problems. What I regret now is that even though I was eating healthy I really wasn’t getting enough probiotics in my diet to keep my good bacteria levels up. Fermented foods, though common in some parts of the world where certain disorders seem quite rare, are very much important for one to be able to withstand parasitic infections. Anyways, its something to look into for someone suffering with a disorder or disease or whatever and feeling like the pills or whatever they’re prescribed, though it may be masking the problems, are really not solving them and the real root of the problem is most likely bacterial infection! Good luck to anyone trying to bring their health back… I know i’m still workin on gettin mine back to what it used to be, and i’m still learning. Rome wasn’t built in a day. =)
