Heart Rate Variability, HRV, is the variation in the time interval between one heartbeat and the next.  People will say their heart rate is 75 or 64 or 82 beats per minute.  But in fact there is, or at least should be some variation in the rhythm of the beating heart, so that when you inhale, your heart rate actually speeds up and when you exhale it slows down.  You are likely not able to sense or feel the difference but it does take place.

While one would think that a steady, unvarying heart rhythm would be something we would want to have, it is just not the case.  The heart continually oscillates between acceleration and deceleration in a tug-of-war within the autonomic nervous system, controlled by two “pacemakers” in the heart that creates the heart’s rhythms. So there should be no fixed heart rate.  In fact, it has been repeatedly shown that the more rigid and unchanging the heart rate, the more stress of some type is in our system and one is at greater risk for health problems of any type.

 

What Causes the Variableness of our Heart Rate?

Our thoughts, emotions, and experiences of the external world are tightly connected to the functioning of our nervous system, heart rhythm and breathing.  When in a stressful moment our heart speeds up.  When our body is under the stress of an infection it will again be at a faster rate but not necessarily have a better variability and more often than not it will have less variability.   Think of what your heart was doing on your first date, prom night, at your wedding or when going into a meeting with the IRS.  It was naturally responding to a stress.  A healthy heart responds to the demands of the organism; it doesn’t follow preordained intervals and the more flexible we are, the more capable we are of dealing with life’s inevitable stressors and the better our HRV.  This flexibility, or lack of it, is tightly correlated to our autonomic nervous system which is in turn reflected in our heart rhythm and then visualized with the test.

The Autonomic Nervous System

 

The autonomic nervous system is the “automatic” nervous system: that part of the nervous system that is not under conscious control. It controls the organs and systems of the body that are rhythmic, regular and automatic such as breathing, digestion, infection fighting and heart rate. There are two branches of the autonomic nervous system: sympathetic and parasympathetic. These two branches work to keep the organs they control in perfect balance.

 

 

 

 

 

The Sympathetic Nervous System is that part of the ANS that produces our “fight or flight” response.  In a word it is responsible for our survival.  In so doing it shuts down digestion and funnels blood and energy to our large muscles to prepare us for attack or escape – i.e. survival and self-preservation.    Chronic over-stimulation of our sympathetic nervous system will eventually lead to multiple health problems and low variability of the heart rate.

The Parasympathetic Nervous System is often referred to as the “rest and digest” part of the ANS.  This part of the ANS decreases the heart rate, improves digestive function and generally allows for repair of our tissues and organs.  When the sympathetic system dominates, repair is difficult and our organs and systems go into disrepair at a much faster rate.

Thus we can see that a greater variability (or good HRV) correlates with better health, a healthy autonomic nervous system, an inherent self-regulatory capacity, along with adaptability and resilience.   And in particular we have a healthy balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems.  A decreased HRV is an early, accurate indicator that the autonomic nervous system is out of balance. The lower the HRV (the lower the variability), the greater the imbalance in autonomic control and the greater the likelihood of poor health, both now and in the future.  Therein lays the beauty of HRV:  It offers a glimpse into the autonomic system, an aspect of our physiology normally shrouded in mystery.

And yes, it is possible to have too much variability or an excessively high HRV.  That is really instability and we would call that arrhythmia, which is chaotic and very detrimental to normal physiological functioning and energy utilization.

Scientifically Based

HRV was first used clinically in 1965 when researchers concluded that fetal distress was accompanied by changes in beat to beat variation in the fetal heart, well before they could see detectable changes in the heart rate.  The scientific data base is rather voluminous at this point with nearly 12,000 scientific articles published in the English language alone.  Even the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has funded many studies on HRV in evaluating it as a biomarker for evaluating health and one’s disease potential.

Even the American Heart Association in a study they published in 2000 found that decreased heart rate variability was associated with a higher risk of death in patients with heart disease and in the elderly and an increased risk of coronary heart disease in the general population.  But other studies have shown that the risk is not limited to just the heart.  There is increased risk for a number of other disease states just as our ANS affects every system and organ of the body. But the opposite is also true among the elderly; a high HRV is strongly associated with “healthy longevity”.

What Causes a Decreased HRV?

Not-so-optimal heart rate variability may due to multiple factors.  It can be from general factors like age, gender or weight, but it can also be from stress at home or work environments or disease states.  Even for some, environmental factors, like mold exposure, the weather, Wi-Fi, or electromagnetic storms can play an unsuspecting role.  And one does not have to be stuck with a lousy HRV; it can be changed.

 

Besides changing or adapting better to those environmental and stress factors, improvement can also come from treating those disease conditions along with using biofeedback, meditation, learning proper breathing and just learning to relax.

 

More than just HRV

It is important to fully understand that while HRV is a wonderfully valuable tool in and of itself, the VedaPulse is more than just HRV.  The developer, Dr. Oleg V. Sorokin along with his team, took the HRV one step further and married the device to the ancient science of Pulse Analysis.  Pulse analysis has been a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the Ayurvedic system of medicine, from India, for hundreds of years.

 

Pulse Analysis is performed by a well-trained TCM doctor or doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine.   His or her fingers are placed on the wrist(s) of the patient where they feel for the subtle signals from the patient’s pulse.  From pulse analysis, an experienced doctor can determine not only whether the patient is well or ill, but also determine the patient’s relative health situation from the perfectly-good-health to critically-ill-health spectrum, as well as the part(s) of the body and the bodily organ(s) that may be experiencing abnormalities. This is the reason that the first thing that doctors of these traditions do in examining a patient is to perform a pulse analysis.  It is likely that the first analysis developed by humans was Pulse Analysis.

 

In the Eastern approach to health assessment, unlike Western Medicine, there is no diagnosis made.  The individual’s constitutional type is assessed and then the underlying syndrome, connected to the distress in specific systems or organs is determined.  The VedaPulse assessment is able to define the constitutional type and from that it further determines the organs that are weak and need of support as well as organs that are mildly to highly stressed.  From that determination, specific recommendations for herbs and essential oils are made, along with specific foods to use and foods to avoid.

 

To make this possible, Dr. Sorokin and his team found a way to described complex concepts of pulse analysis in mathematical language.  In so doing, the VedaPulse can estimate the energy level of the 12 systems below. Red color will indicate tension (excess stress in the organ), those organs in yellow will indicate debilitation of energy (syndrome of weakness); orange colored organs reveal light tension.   Light green in the organs suggest slight debilitation and green color indicates a normal functioning organ.  The 12 organs/systems evaluated by the VedaPulse include:

 

With few exceptions the VedaPulse is performed on every new patient that I see and provides some extremely valuable insights on where the stresses are in the system and where we find weakness as well.

 

The 12 organs Evaluated by

The VedaPulse:

  1. Lungs
  2. Colon
  3. Stomach
  4. Spleen
  5. Heart
  6. Small intestine
  7. Urinary bladder
  8. Kidney
  9. Pericardium
  10. Triple heater
  11. Gall bladder
  12. Liver

 

In this example #3, the stomach is highly stressed while #4, the spleen and #10, the Triple Heater (endocrine organs) are very weak

 

We also will see a measure of the level of health, the level of our stress and our ability to adapt to the stressors in our life.  But we also like to know how fast we are aging in dealing with our life stresses.  The VedaPulse provides this information to us as well.

METATRON ASSESSMENT and THERAPY
A Brief Introduction

A Rapid Assessment of the Body’s Organ/Gland,
 Tissue and Interference Fields for a Rapid
Return to Optimal Health Status

UNLEASHING THE POWER

What if there was a way your body could quickly repair a damaged organ or rejuvenate itself at an accelerated rate?  What if you could regain peak mental and physical performance in spite of having been chronically ill and fatigued for years?  Today many physicians and practitioners of the healing arts believe the secret of regeneration and healing lies not with costly medical drugs or expensive medical treatments but by tapping into and feeding the healing energy found in every person.

More than ever, it is now possible to release the body’s inherently powerful, biological healing energy that is capable of rapid renewal and regeneration in our bodies.   The Metatron is a powerful tool that we use to define and eliminate stressors that have deactivated the body’s own potent, internal healing systems for rejuvenation, endurance, vitality and longevity.  Modern medical therapies frequently underestimate the body’s magnificent internal intelligence and often end up blocking its capabilities for self-healing and repair.

Often the reason for this is that medical practice and medical research today is essentially focused on biochemistry and pharmaceutical drugs that affect our biochemistry, while the “physics” of the disease is mostly ignored.  It is not that we should ignore biochemistry; just recognize its limitations and its actual subservience to the physics of the cell.

Science, but especially medicine, has
essentially restricted itself to facts that can be counted, measured or weighed via standard, acceptable ways.  This is useful and needs to be done but cellular physics teaches us that healing takes place on an energetic and informational plane that enables the material or biochemical change.

CELLULAR PHYSICS
In the 1920s the Russian born engineer, George Lakhovsky, postulated that the “twisted filaments” in the cells, which we now know as DNA, are in fact miniature, oscillating circuits.  He observed that all living beings are uniquely characterized by the frequencies of radiation they emit.  Further, he found that our cells could either receive or transmit specific frequencies.  Recently, the work of noted German biophysicist, Dr. Fritz Albert Popp, found that each of our cells has a very unique crystal-like membrane structure that will resonate to different light energies or frequencies. This semi-crystalline outer membrane structure of our cells means that every one of our trillion plus cells has an ideal resonant frequency (like the crystal glass that rings it own special note when stuck) producing a biofield that is unique to the different organ systems of each person’s body and enables the Metatron to precisely identify the hierarchy of what is taking place in your body.  So it should be understood then, that a healthy cell radiates coherent light, while an unhealthy cell radiates chaotic light frequencies and is a carrier of the identity of the problems affecting that cell.
The Metatron and its software is a sophisticated biofeedback instrument that quickly unveils the core issues in organ and gland deficiency, unresponsiveness of the immune system and toxic contaminates that distort and disturb our biofield.  When this biofield becomes disturbed, the ability of our cells to communicate is compromised and disease is inevitable.

Think about this for a moment.  From the point of view of physics all disease is caused by pathological frequencies in our body coupled with inadequate nutritional biophotons (light energy) necessary to give order to the chaotic patterns found in disease.  Keep in mind that every inoculation, perfume, hand lotion, food – in fact every breath we take, will change our frequency spectrum, for better or worse.  If worse, they are toxins that emit light-scrambling frequencies, producing disorder within the DNA signaling system as well as generating oxidative stress, thus consuming precious antioxidants.

According to Dr. Popp, individuals with serious illness lack biophotons and are chaotic emission producers.  Thus the foods and supplements we eat will either enhance and intensify or deplete and confuse our biophotonic healing energies.  So not only do we do well to pay close attention to what we eat but everything we apply to our skin – it does become a part of us.  Just consider that the average individual is a carrier of 500 different chemicals, insecticides and heavy metals.  The result is that sickness is the manifestation of a pattern of disharmonic resonance from multiple sources that disrupt the body’s delicate but very complicated and intertwined communication network. (See Table 1)

Some time ago Biologist, Enza Ciccob stated:  “Everyday we measure the frequencies, the oscillations that enliven living organisms.  Every atom, every molecule, every substance has its own oscillation that corresponds to that of a sound or color.  These sounds, colors and vibrations together determine the harmony of health or the disharmony of an illness.”  The disharmonious frequencies of the toxic metals, cadmium, mercury, lead, beryllium and antimony are suggested to be involved in at least 50% of the deaths and much of the disabling diseases in the US. (Schroeder, The Poisons Around Us, Keats)

 

USING THE METATRON
We use the Metatron for two reasons.  The first is to determine what support the body and its specific organs and tissues wants and needs for its own healing, repair and rejuvenating purposes.  And secondly, we want to determine what is interfering with that process.  In other words we want to know if any toxins, chronic infections or interference fields exist and what specifically the body requires to help release them as a blocking agent or interference field.

The Metatron makes use of the very sophisticated biofeedback communication system of our body and provides an accurate tool for assessing the individualized pattern of functional disorders, thereby helping the practitioner identify and eliminate the hidden inducers and promoters of illness.

If a tissue or organ is healthy, the level of noise or incoherence in the system is close to zero.  On the computer screen this shows up in a very close relationship between the input signal and the output signal.  However if that organ is not healthy, a serious gap will be observed between these same signals.  This is called signal dissociation and the greater the dissociation, the greater the level of noise or incoherence in the tissue and the greater the likely dysfunction of that organ.

But when the correct living nutrition, enhanced with bio photons, is applied to the bio field of the body or when the appropriate frequencies of Meta-therapy from the Metatron are supplied, the body uses this support to move the functional status of the organs to an optimal and healthy state.
The effect here is similar to one note on a piano played in harmonic resonance with another note – good music results.  Likewise, the kidney (or any organ/tissue) has a specific frequency.  When herbal or nutrient frequencies match it correctly or when a frequency from the Metatron matches it, resonance takes place.  If resonance does not take place then there will be a compromise in its supportive capacity.  Thus a good or successful remedy or therapy is one in which the modality goes into resonance with your own oscillations – either enhancing the healthy ones or diminishing the pathological ones.

In reality, the reason an herb like milk thistle is helpful for the liver is not because its nutrient supplies match those of the liver, but because its own frequencies or resonance, match those of the liver.  And we use it for the liver because it matches those of the liver better than the kidney or stomach or really any other organ.  But consider that if that same milk thistle is contaminated with pesticides or other chemicals – its resonance is now off and only partially matches the liver.

Please realize then, that two foods that look similar or two herbal/nutritional supplements that have similar ingredients may have an entirely different resonance pattern and not have the same effect at all on an individual.    Remember physics trumps chemistry because it drives the biochemistry of the body and here in a practical way is a good example.  Studies by Dr. Fritz Popp and Bernard Ruth, found that photon counts (those life-giving emissions from the sun) from tomatoes, showed decreasing photon emission the longer they were stored.  In addition, photons given off by eggs from captive hens were lower than from eggs obtained from free-range chickens.  And vegetables contaminated with heavy metals also showed a decreased photon emission compared to those not contaminated.
You can see why then that Dr. Paul Yanick writes:  “Biochemistry alone does not hold all the answers to piecing together the puzzle of chronic and multifaceted illness.  The cells that compose our organ structures are nourished not only by oxygen, glucose and other nutrients but also by streams of energy containing specific resonant frequencies that cause enzymes to function and give life to the organism.”  The troubling fact is that the more adulterated our food and supplements, the greater the effect on the resonant frequency of the cells and the less able to adequately nourish the body and make it “sing”.

TOXIC CONTAMINANTS  
Toxins are commonly thought to act by slowly but relentlessly sedating an organ or tissue, apparently by producing chaotic frequencies.  This “background noise” impairs normal cell coherence.  And when cell coherence is impaired, light energy or biophotons from the DNA, necessary for cellular communication and healing is significantly compromised.  This results in an ever-escalating demand for more nutrition, but unfortunately, an ever-diminishing, beneficial return for the nutrients provided.

Try to understand how it might affect us this way.  Imagine your body when healthy as an orchestra performing a beautiful symphony.  We could think of the liver as, say, the violins; or the intestine we might call the percussion.  The lungs could be the wind instruments; perhaps the brain is the conductor and the heart and kidneys some other instrument.  So you have the picture.  When all our instruments are playing correctly and cooperatively, beautiful music (or good health) takes place. But if the bass section or the strings are missing notes or playing wrong notes, we don’t hear quality music.  In the same way, when the large intestine or the stomach or any organ is upset or dysfunctional, we hear dissonance in this body orchestra.  This dissonance is somewhere between lessened health to disease. Either way the “conductor” is not as happy as he’d like to be.

Now try to imagine the New York
Philharmonic performing a masterful performance, but while doing so, some child is playing “chopsticks” on the stage piano.  This would be our equivalent of an interference field or toxin.  And for most of us the body orchestra keeps playing but we don’t enjoy the music (our health).

What coordinates our body orchestra and indeed all our body processes, are biophotons.  But when the connective tissues and vital organs lack adequate water or get loaded with toxins, especially in the face of nutrient deprivation, adequate availability and proper flow of photon emission is impaired.  This results in incorrect information transmission and effects the immune, endocrine, circulatory and in reality every system of the body, promoting dysfunction and disease.

So in reality we are human photocells and our ultimate nutrient is sunlight.  This is where the stored light energy in food becomes absolutely critical.  Naturally grown, organic fresh vegetables and fruits ripened on the tree and vine by the sun are super-saturated in light energy.  Through the miracle of photosynthesis, the sun’s light frequencies or photons are bio-transformed and stored in green plants, trees, grasses and medicinal herbs.  When consumed they release nutrients and multiple light (bio-photon) frequencies into our bodies.  The stored sun energy, or photons, in these types of foods, finds their way into your body cells and ultimately into the DNA. And like miniature tuning forks they give order and coordination to all body processes.

It becomes rather obvious then, that the quality of food is a critical factor in determining our health… the more photon–rich a food, the better its quality.  Most Americans today consume food almost devoid of this healing, light energy.  This is perhaps why Nobel Prize Laureate, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi once said, “We live by a small trickle of light energy from the sun.”

Not surprisingly then, the greater your store
of light energy from these foods and nutrients, the better overall biofield exists and consequently the more energy is available for healing and health maintenance.  This manifests itself as a feeling of vitality and well-being.  But as noted earlier, even when consuming very high quality food, the more we apply cooking, microwaving or irradiation to the food, the less photons they are able to provide to our bodies.

Scientific discovery has determined that the vast majority of nutritional supplements available today do not contain photon energy.  Most are synthetically derived nutrients and in nearly every case contain stress-inducing toxins found as excipients and fillers in the capsules or tablets.  Synthetic supplements may have the chemistry correct but not the physics.  They may seem to do the job in the “short run” and even induce energy improvement.  But over time Dr. Popp has determined that they will actually deplete our own quantum (light) energy and result in DNA deterioration and body ageing. This makes sense, since they are not adding to the store of light energy, but must make use of the ones we have to accomplish their job.

When you use these highly resonant foods and nutriceutical agents they are able to empower the awesome healing power of your body – allowing it to become the self-healing, self-regenerating system it was originally designed to be.

YOUR METATRON EVALUATION
When you are given a Metatron evaluation, we are really assessing the functional aspects of energy and information in your biofield – which can change more rapidly than the material, such as damaged tissue.  The result is that the body’s specific needs in the healing process will change and re-evaluation will be necessary to keep up with the changing demands of the body.  And do keep in mind that because of the unique factors involved in the causation of ill health, different individuals with the same or similar symptoms may have dissimilar initiators of their problems and require very different biological, nutritional and resonate support.

Traditional medicine and much of alternative medicine and nutrition uses clinical trials and epidemiological data to determine drug or nutrient recommendations.  This has its place for general recommendations, but when it comes to specific individuals we are all too well aware that 100,000 individuals die each year from appropriately prescribed drugs.  And many have found their nutritional supplements that helped their friend, of little help to them…how much better to be very specific about what each individual body wants and needs with the help of the Metatron.

Because each person is unique and has his or her own particular imbalances, it becomes impossible to have a single clinical protocol that effectively addresses the unique needs of all patients.  And many of the general recommendations given are far too simplistic, very often failing to address the toxic load and the troubling interference fields of the individual.  Instead, the Metatron uses a unique, multi-leveled assessment technique that unmasks the core issues in organ/gland deficiency and immune system unresponsiveness.  It provides proven, therapeutic answers that facilitates the body’s complete healing at the root cause of the illness, including the energy patterns of xenobiotics, xenoestrogens, mycotoxins, toxic chemicals and heavy metals.

The Metatron captures the bioelectric activity of the brain neurocytes and then amplifies and decodes those signals to retrieve the information they provide.  This information is displayed on the computer screen over a virtual model of the organ or tissue being evaluated.

This display is highly valuable in that it presents the organ’s health in a color-coded format, varying from light yellow (healthier) through orange to red and purple and almost black, where organ stress is maximal and the health of the organ is highly suspect

The software of the Metatron is programmed with a considerable amount of information on highly stressful disturbances affecting your body, disturbance that some would call pathologic.  When these disturbances are matched against the oscillations from the organs and cells of the individual being tested, a wealth of information is available that can suggest what those unhealthy disturbances might cause if not corrected.

When tissues and cells produce chaotic frequencies, you can be sure that the biochemistry of the organs involved will be impaired.  So, at the most fundamental level, healing must restore coherence to the body’s resonant frequencies.  If this does not take place, health improvement is minimal at best or does not occur at all.

All individuals harbor toxins of all types, some in very excessive amounts, including, viruses, fungi, toxic metals, chemicals and parasites.  When a corrective program is put in place, the body is focused to begin the process of unburdening itself from these stressors that prevent optimal health.   Your body always wants to heal and in principle your body can heal anything.  But guided support from the Metatron, along with a proper food and supplement selection, adequate rest and appropriate exercise, can be a major step toward a healthier you.

But here it is very important to understand that the Metatron itself does not heal anything.  However, it does nurture your body toward its own innate self-healing capacity.  So when the Meta-therapy is used, specific frequencies are added to help the body speed up the process, but it is still your own body that produces any healing effect. As your body becomes focused on the problem stressors, it will effect their excretion out of the body.  But usually our health issues are in energetic layers that require additional promptings of the Meta-therapy on a subsequent visit.

All the information about the state of your body is delivered to the brain. We are using special trigger sensors which are shaped as headphones in order to connect to it (which are tuned to the same frequency).  Furthermore, we use special software in order to obtain the data, to decode it and to display on the screen in the form of three-dimensional
models of organs, tissues and cells. We use a special marker system to highlight their actual conditions -normal or abnormal (in total we have 6 evaluation criteria).

This method of assessment is reliable, reproducible, clinically effective and scientifically valid, as it is based on the scientific principles of known facts of human physiology, quantum cellular physics and human bio resonance.  Enjoy your visit and prepare to be amazed…

Do you want to know for sure?  Of course you do so read on for a quick and simple solution to knowing if you do and which ones are excessive and which ones are deficient.

You take supplements and you hope you are getting enough of the essential minerals.  But how do you know for sure?  Or perhaps you’re one who feels that you are consuming a healthy diet and you really don’t need to add any supplements to your diet.  But how do you know for sure?

Most individuals would like to know if they are fully benefiting from their food and supplements they consume.  And you should want to know.  Here is one good reason:  “Alongside dermatology and psychological disorders, nutritional disorders are among the most common problems encountered by clinicians.  It has been estimated that over 70% of patients are at high risk of having or developing a nutritional deficiency…contributing to their illness” (Kotsirilos V. et al, A Guide to Evidenced Based Integrative and Complimentary Medicine.  Sydney: Churchill Livingstone; 2011 p.14).

Many patients ask me what supplements they should be taking and while it is easy to make some educated guesses, it would be much better to know exactly what minerals were deficient and need additional supplementing and which do not.

Now determining the answer to this nutritional concern has been not only difficult but expensive.  You see, using serum levels in the blood is really not accurate.  Testing red blood cells or white blood cells improves things a bit but with that comes extra cost.  What is lacking is knowing one’s actual tissue level of our minerals – and at a reasonable price.

Now besides concerns for our essential minerals there is another concern, perhaps even bigger – toxic/heavy metals like mercury, arsenic, aluminum and lead.  Exposure to these metals is more common place than most realize and far more dangerous than is appreciated.  But are you getting rid of them, eliminating them out of your body?  That is the question and a very important question because these toxic metals can be terribly disturbing and damaging to our organs and tissues leading to dysfunctional biochemistry, disordered metabolic functions and chronic disease.

In fact most functional health practitioners believe that in nearly all chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, autoimmune illness and neurological diseases, not only are mineral deficiencies to be found but these toxic metals will be present as one of the underlying reasons for that disease.  Knowing if this is true for you is of utmost importance if you desire to stay well or to enable you to overcome whatever health concerns you may have.

So what is the answer to this nutritional conundrum?  We need to know our mineral status, if we have sufficient levels or not.  And we need to know if toxic metals are clogging our metabolic machinery and destroying our health.  But then we also need answers that are not ridiculously expensive and give us information that is truly accurate, based on what is in our cells (tissues), not outside our cells!

I believe the answer is the OligoScan.  A European developed Instrument, recently available to practitioners in the U.S.

 

In my desire to always find the best way to access and improve patient’s health, I am delighted to be one of the few practitioners in the U.S. to offer the OligoScan, an in-office, non-invasive (no skin puncture) instrument that determines the intra-cellular levels of 20 essential minerals/trace elements, 14 toxic/heavy metals and one’s level of oxidative stress.  The 3-page report also includes the zinc/copper ratio and the sodium/potassium ratio, crucial to neurological and cardiovascular health and energy production.
Developed in France, after decades of research, the OligoScan is a sophisticated test that is simple to administer.  After getting specific essential information, such as height, weight, age, and blood type, readings are taken using a spectrophotometer device at four different locations on the person’s non-dominant hand.  Your data is uploaded to the OligoScan servers where it is analyzed against a vast database.  You will see the results immediately!  How awesome is that!  With this information about your current state of health, better treatment decisions can be made for you.

What is spectrophotometry?
Spectrophotometry is a quantitative analytical method of measuring the absorption or the optical density of a mineral or chemical. It is based on the principle of absorption, transmission or reflection of light by the chemical or metal compounds over a specific wavelength range.
Spectrophotometry is used in many areas: chemistry, pharmaceuticals, environment, food, biology, medical/clinical, industrial and others. In the medical field, spectrophotometry is used to examine blood or tissue.
And for those of you who just have to have a little more technical information:  Spectrophotometry determines the optical density of a substance.  Every substance emits and absorbs frequencies and more light is absorbed with increasing density.  This allows for a quantitative analysis for each of the different minerals and toxic metals.  And interestingly enough, light reflects differently depending on blood type (O, A, B, AB), so that is why I need to know your blood type when performing this test. (No worries if you don’t know your blood type.  I use a simple, inexpensive test kit to determine that.)
In simple terms the elements present and the amount of their presence effects the light entering the cells and that determines the intensity of the electromagnetic signals picked up by the OligoScan instrument.

 

How is the OligoScan different than tests such as blood, urine and hair analysis?
Most of these other tests measure either circulating levels of minerals or metals, such as with blood testing, or what the body is excreting, as is the case with urine and hair analysis.  The OligoScan is unique in that it measures the levels of minerals and metals inside your cells.

The primary difference:  The OligoScan measures intracellularly.

Blood tests show metals which have circulated recently. Metals are dumped within a few days from the bloodstream into the tissues. Blood can therefore only be used in acute situations for toxic metals. The level of minerals and trace elements is kept fairly constant in blood. Many people with muscle cramps often have a normal magnesium level in serum; the OligoScan in this case will commonly show a magnesium deficiency.

Urinalysis shows to what extent the body can excrete metals. In a normal spontaneous urine sample, almost nothing is excreted. Only after the body is provoked will increased metal concentrations be found in the urine. This is done with a challenge test for toxic metals. This is a valuable test that shows in what amount metals are present in the extracellular environment. Again, the OligoScan measures intracellularly. The challenge test and OligoScan complement each other completely in this aspect.

Hair analysis shows which metals were present during the last 2-3 months. But if a body cannot detoxify well, low amounts of metals will be found in hair. This is called false-negative results.  Hair analysis is even more questionable depending upon what treatments the hair has undergone and what agents have been applied to the hair.

Consider an example.   A urine test for heavy metals showed high levels of lead and slightly elevated mercury.  A chelating agent, which binds to heavy metals, was used to obtain this result. Keep in mind that different chelating agents are more selective for one or another of the specific metals. In this case, the test results showed a higher lead in the urine because of the specific chelating agent used. The OligoScan in the test above showed both these metals high in the tissues with mercury levels more elevated than the lead levels but the cadmium level even higher. The OligoScan provided a more accurate picture of what was occurring in the tissues, indicating that both mercury and cadmium were more of a problem than the lead.
Another example is seen in someone with high calcium in their hair analysis. On the OligoScan, the same patient may show a deficiency of intracellular calcium as they are not utilizing their calcium.

What to expect with your test
The actual measurement with the OligoScan is very simple.  After I enter your data, including height, weight and blood type, the instrument is gently pressed on four points on the palm of the non-dominate hand.  And really, that’s all there is to the test itself.  The sophisticated software takes over from there and determines the effect to which the light beam is affected by the presence or absence of the minerals and metals.  The result is a 3-page report that you receive immediately, allowing you to implement any necessary changes right away.

The report provides you with an unpresented level of detail of your cellular health – these include important details of why you may be experiencing a reduced level of health, why you can’t seem to improve or what nutritional and toxic factors may be predisposing you in the future unless changes are made.

Why do you need this testing?

Heavy metals are highly degenerative to the body.

  • Other healthcare practitioners currently using the OligoScan report 80% to 90% of their patients show excess heavy metals with aluminum being the highest.
  • Accumulation of these metals in the body reduces the effectiveness of medical treatments up to 60%. It is, therefore, less likely that anti-oxidants and mineral supplements will be effective if heavy metals are present.
  • We are exposed to these metals on a daily basis, so knowing how effective your body is at detoxifying them will allow you to improve that function if needed.

How often should I get an OligoScan?
OligoScans are very advantageous as not only can one tell what is going on in the body right at that time, but follow-up scans can show how one’s case is progressing.  A follow-up scan may be performed anywhere from 6 -12 weeks after the initial scan to make sure that the treatment protocol is working.

Can children be tested on the OligoScan?
Children who are two years and older can be tested using the OligoScan.  It is an ideal way to obtain useful information, and your child will enjoy the fact that they will not be getting any needles!

If you’re feeling tired or run down, it could be due to mineral deficiencies or even heavy metal toxicity. But what do you do when you can’t face a battery of endless blood tests and visits to doctor’s waiting rooms?  One answer is OligoScan.  It gives me an unprecedented level of insight into your cellular health.
Having accurate and precise information on aspects such as anti-oxidants, heavy metal accumulation and mineral deficiencies is a real insight into what issues could be influencing your wellbeing. Everyday symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia or build-up of stress can often be better understood in the light of this data.
With a true understanding of your health on a cellular level, I am much better able to recommend a treatment program with dietary changes and supplements, in order to improve your wellbeing.
The OligoScan measures mineral deficiencies due to diet and food choices, the accumulation of heavy metals in the body and levels of anti-oxidants in the body – all at cellular levels.  This means the test gives the most direct and immediate information possible on your health. It is significantly faster and more accurate than assessing urine or blood samples. The human body keeps the blood levels balanced for much longer than our tissues; therefore the deficiency is first seen in the cells rather than in the blood itself. That’s why OligoScan can highlight issues that a normal blood test cannot.
And remember, the OligoScan requires no injections or blood taking; it is pain-free providing instant results which are more precise than a standard blood test.

Okay, What about Cost?

The introductory price for the OligoScan assessment is $95.00 with an initial or previous visit.  The scan without an initial or previous visit is $115.00.  It is a very popular test as individuals really want answers about their nutritional status and what metal toxins they are harboring.  The company that developed the OligoScan sells me the equipment but for each test send for analysis, I am charged an analysis fee – but that is well worth it as you will see when you take this test and have an OligoScan assessment.  Don’t be in the dark get the assessment and be certain.  Make the changes and be healthy.

I often find that many new patients have never been to a Naturopathic Doctor previously. 

Some have always used natural remedies that they learned from mom or dad or they just knew intuitively that it was the best place to start.  Others, having used a more traditional route with conventional doctors, came to see me because their chronic issue(s) was/were not being resolved. 

I always start with a thorough history.   

So I always ask “what is your primary health concern?”   Sometimes it is only one concern but often it can be three or four.   What is important to you is very important to me so I want to know as much about your problem(s) as you can provide.  I want to know how long you have had symptoms, how long ago you were given a diagnosis (if you were given one) and I want to know what makes the problem better or what makes it worse.  It is important for me to know if there was some event in your life that preceded the onset of symptoms.  Was there an illness, like a flu that preceded the onset of symptoms, or did it begin with a travel event, auto accident, or a major stress of some type.  These are clues that may be useful in determining the underlying cause(s). 

The underlying cause or causes is far more important than having a diagnosis and most patients do recognize this.

Sometimes the event that started the problem was only a trigger for a deeper underlying cause – like a serious cold or flu that awakens a dormant, but more serious chronic infection.  Or an automobile accident that weakens the immune system and awakens a smoldering and chronic infection to a more significant level of activity. 

 We can take a pain reliever for a headache and while it may relieve the pain, aspirin or Tylenol deficiency is not the cause of the headache.  I want to know what that cause is.  Sometimes the underlying cause was not the precipitating cause and I need all this information to try to distinguish the two.

The problem most patients have with chronic disease today is that in conventional medicine, the underlying reasons for the disease is never really assessed.  Chronic viruses, the Lyme spirochete, mold toxins, food sensitivities, gluten, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, damaged or leaky gut, parasites, adrenal and mitochondrial dysfunction and much more are, for the most part, ignored, or worse, scoffed at and ridiculed.  But today, all chronic diseases have one or more of these underlying factors and they must be uncovered if we are to get long-term relief of chronic illness.  The body always wants to heal but it is generally necessary to remove some blocking agents to allow the body to accomplish its goal.

I also want to know what you are eating and drinking during a typical day. 

This will provide further clues so that I can give you the best possible advice to improve your health.

I will also ask about dental interventions.  I want to know if you have had any root canals, dental restorations and the materials used.  I will want to find out if your gums bleed or if you have periodontal disease.  What happens in your mouth has a great deal to do with the health of your body.   All of our teeth (or spaces where a tooth was) are on a specific acupuncture meridian and connected directly with specific organs of the body.   Any inflammation, dental material, or infection can have a potentially toxic influence in a tissue far away from that tooth.

You will be asked about supplements you take and any prescription drugs you are using. 

It is not unusual for some of the symptoms patients are complaining of to be the same as the side-effects of the drugs they are using. 

And, as you could guess, I do want to know what stresses you may have in your life and how much of a stress these are, how long you have been dealing with them and if you are having trouble coping with them, when you expect any resolution, if at all. 

I have all patients complete a detailed information questionnaire that will ask about many areas for which you may or may not have symptoms.   I will send this to you in advance so that you can complete it at your own pace prior to our appointment.

If you have had any lab work completed in the last year or two, I encourage you send it to me before this this first evaluation and I will review it with you. 

I often find key blood parameters that are missing or ones that were abnormal and the patient was never told that it was a potential problem.  Knowing this previous data is very helpful to me in evaluating any changes in a particular parameter over time that is in need of attention.

Much of our health is determined by our start in life.  Yes, our genetics will play a role and while we can’t change our genes, we can control how they are expressed and that is the epi-genetics.  Epi-genetic factors are those nutritional, environmental and even emotional factors that will determine if a gene is expressed on not.  So, having a gene variant for breast cancer does not mean that it has to be expressed.   There are generally several factors that are working to inhibit the expression of a gene and likewise others working to express a gene.  So eating a lousy diet, not getting any healthy sunlight, being a “couch potato” with lots of stress will encourage the expression of that gene.  But likewise a healthy diet with adequate nutrients needed for breast tissue with exercise and a happy outlook can go a long way to prevent the expression of that gene.

So with that in mind, our start in life is very important, so I ask if you were born vaginally or by C-section and if you were breast fed and, in addition, if you were given lots of antibiotics.  These are critical factors in determining the health of our intestinal tract.  You see, changes in our intestinal microbiome can have effects that not only last our lifetime but can be passed on to successive generations.  And a damaged gut is the foundation for the majority of our chronic degenerative diseases. 

Finally, I will ask about flu vaccinations, if you have had them, breast augmentation for females, later history of antibiotic use and if you have had an exposure to mold at home or at a place of work.

After I have all this information, I may make recommended changes to your diet and to suggest changes to your nutritional supplements.  I may further suggest life-style changes to improve health outcomes and I will likely recommend specific tests that you should consider to give us a more complete picture of those underlying causes that are preventing you from having the level of health that you desire.   Before I do this I will often ask “Now what would you like for me to do for you?”   This gives me the assurance that I am focusing on exactly what you want to have done for you.  Most of the time patients will leave with a written and detailed plan to guide them in facilitating their health objectives.

Generally, the initial visit will take 1 1/2-2 hours. 

So please plan accordingly.  As a general rule, children can be a partial distraction and I encourage patients, if at all possible, to have this time free from their need for parental or grand-parental attention. 

If you have any questions or concerns you need to discuss with me ahead of a potential visit, I am very happy to do so.  Just call me at 501-538-4944

Thank you for your interest in coming to see me, Dr. Roger Trubey

  • 1. Remove Toxic Foods
    • GMO Foods – cotton, zucchini squash, yellow squash, canola, corn, soy, papaya, beet sugar, alfalfa – these foods should always be consumed as organic
      • Most grains and most legumes are almost always sprayed with glyphosate (Roundup® weed killer) prior to harvesting – these food should always be consumed as organic
      • Glyphosate has been found to cause:
        • liver and kidney damage
        • Depletion of minerals in the soil
        • Kill beneficial gut bacteria
        • Block production of the aromatic amino acids – mood, sleep, pain issues here
        • Block production of vitamin D
        • Impairs detoxification
        • Poisons our mitochondria – energy, fatigue and brain fog issues here
        • Acts as an endocrine disrupter
        • Is a class 2A carcinogen
    • Bad fats – hydrogenated, processed or damaged grain and seed oils (corn, soy, canola, safflower, sunflower oils etc.)  Damage to these oils occurs with exposure to heat, light or air
    • Conventionally raised meats – loaded with antibiotics, chemicals and GMO grains
    • Pork – stores toxins and parasites.  Shrimp is a close second
    • Artificial sweeteners and soft drinks (form most Americans, more calories come from soft drinks than any other source)
    • Remember:   Cancer is an attempt to soak up all the sugar from the doughnuts, bread and carbohydrates we eat.  We must return to eating like our ancestors because what we eat brings consequences

 

    • 2. Improve Gut Function – heal a leaky gut
      • Bone broth (chicken or beef) or bone broth protein – loaded with glycine to support detoxification
      • Use bitter foods which dry up “dampness” (with cancer body is very “damp” – oriental medicine) use sour kraut, kimchi, kombucha, beet kvass, organic kiefer, pickles etc.  These foods are rich in cancer fighting probiotics.  There are more probiotics in these foods and more diverse in type, than in most probiotic supplements
      • The power of sour is that they eliminate the craving for sweets
      • Wheat, sugar and dairy are the foods that contribute the most to dampness

 

    • 3. Eat Real Food and Eat lots of Organic Colorful vegetables and some fruits (mostly berries)
      • Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries  cherries and blackberries – organic please
      • Parsley, tomato, bok choy, kale, olive oil, kale artichoke – all have anti-angiogenesis factors
      • The phytochemicals in these colorful foods are the substances plants use to protect themselves and benefit from them
      • Omit all processed foods – just a terrible drain on all body systems
    • 4. Eat Gluten Free
      • if you are known to have celiac disease, an autoimmune condition or chronic illness.  Much less damaging is the consumption of grains when sprouted or fermented as in sourdough where the gluten is broken   down by the fermentation process

 

    • 5. Enjoy lots of herbs and spices  – add them to every meal
      • Cilantro, Parsley, turmeric/curcumin, cinnamon (balancing insulin levels), nutmeg, rosemary, oregano, thyme, clove, etc.
      • Most of these are strongly immune supportive, have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and some like turmeric/curcumin have strong cancer preventive and treatment properties

 

    • 6. Eat and enjoy sprouted foods
      • Sprouted organic alfalfa, sunflower, lentil and other seeds and legumes
      • These unleash the power of nature because germination is activation and activation activates your health

 

    • 7. Use Medicinal Mushrooms to support the immune system
      • Reishi, Cordyceps, Shiitake, Maitake, Coriolus versicolor are all mushrooms having anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and liver protective activities.  They have also been found to alleviate chemotherapy side effects such as nausea and kidney damage and protect cellular DNA by raising antioxidant capacity.
      • They all give excellent support to the immune system and aid in cleansing, detoxifying and modulating the immune system.

 

    • 8. Load up on healthy fats
      • Avocado, olives and olive oil, coconut butter, butter, tallow, organic raw nuts and seeds, turkey bacon, grass-fed fatty meats, wild-caught fatty fish and fish oils, pastured chicken eggs, raw cheese, organic peanuts, very dark chocolate
      • Eating this way starves the cancer cells, improves neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS and is excellent help in all autoimmune conditions
      • Black Cumin seeds (crushed whole seeds) and others from Seeds of Eden may be especially beneficial to the cancer patient.

 

    • 9. Be cautious of the common allergens
      • Dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and shellfish

 

    • 10. Some supporting supplements to use
      • Vitamin D – get it from the sun when available otherwise most need at least 5000 I U/day
      • Probiotics and green tea – protect and heal the gut – always
      • Spirulina, chlorella and other greens taken daily are vital to our good health
      • Beta Glucan has been found to increase the number of macrophages – those white cells that fight infections and ravage cancer cells

 

    • 11. Get to know and use Essential Oils
      • Frankincense and Myrrh  – traditional used to fight cancer and other degenerative diseases – try drops on the skin with a carrier oil or apply 2 drops to the roof of the mouth
      • Lemon – d-limonene – bitter so will decrease dampness, release bile and drains the lymph tissues
      • Thyme/Oregano – these both contain thymol which acts a parasite cleanse.  Must be used with caution when taken internally
      • Ginger has often been used to treat stomach problems, nausea, heart strokes, indigestion, inflammation, respiratory problems, and menstrual disorders
      • Lavender – naturally decreases cortisol.  Use topically or add to bath water with Epsom salts. It helps to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain,  enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems

 

    • 12. Promote cleansing and detoxification
      • Milk thistle and Bupleurum very helpful in facilitating liver detoxification
      • Use vegetable juicing, herbal teas and bone broth
      • DesBio Comprehensive Detox  and Cyto detox are particularly effective strategies to facilitate the removal of toxins and heavy metals

 

    • 13. Consider Natural treatments
      • Lymph massage, essential oils, barefoot walking in the sun, rebounder for lymph drainage (10 min. twice daily), adequate sleep/rest, deep breathing/ yoga, meditation and prayer

Most everyone is familiar with Marijuana, as it has been in the news for decades, but most recently for the number of states that are allowing its use for medicinal purposes or even recreational use.  But really, there is nothing new about Cannabis.  It’s been around humankind, well almost forever.  But while we are familiar with the Cannabis plant as marijuana, we should also know that its lesser known sister, hemp, is also a cannabis plant.

Hemp and marijuana are just different varieties of Cannabis sativa. There are just some differences in their genetics, the way they are cultivated, the types of cannabidiols found in each and their legal status.  Currently there are 25 states where it is legal for patients to use “marijuana” for medical purposes. Pending federal legislation may open up opportunities for federally-funded medical research, including human clinical trials. This will further prove cannabis’ track-record when it comes to healing a number of disease conditions − including cancer.

Cannabidiol is the second most prevalent of cannabis’s active ingredients and may produce most of its effects at moderate and mid-range doses.  Cannabidiol becomes THC as the plant matures and the THC over time breaks down into cannabinol (CBN).

In Siberia, charred seeds have been found inside burial mounds dating back to 3000 BC.  The Chinese were using cannabis as medicine thousands of years ago.  And our first president, George Washington, grew hemp at his home on Mount Vernon.  Indeed for most of this country’s history, cannabis was legal, commonly available in tinctures and extracts.  In fact, in the 1930s the American pharmaceutical firms, Parke-Davis and Eli Lilly, were selling extracts of cannabis.

But when the news publisher, William Randolph Hurst began to publish some sensational stories about marijuana during that same decade, the dye was cast against its continued use.  But Hurst was not concerned about people’s health in the least.  You see hemp had extensive use then, and still does today, in the textile, paper and other fiber product industries. But Hurst had extensive financial interests in the lumber and paper industries and was clearly interested in eliminating any competition.  And so in 1942 Cannabis was removed from the U.S. pharmacopeia.

But during the intervening years extensive research on cannabis was being conducted in Israel.  And so in 1990 further scientific research had confirmed the presence of cannabinoid receptors in our cells – in all major organs, nerves and intestine.  And by 1992 it was further confirmed that the body has its own endocannabinoid system whereby we produce our own cannabinoids.  And since then it has been discovered that this system regulates a variety of biological processes, including pain, sleep, mood, appetite and inflammation.  In fact it is now understood to be the master controller for all body systems, regulating and fine-tuning each one to maintain homeostasis and health.

So let’s be clear.  We were created by God with a built-in system to have an overall regulating effect on multiple body systems.  This system is the Endocannabinoid System.  But we make cannabinoids ourselves to support this system and when we don’t make enough to properly regulate everything, we suffer from various ill effects including, pain, anxiety, depression and a variety of other ills described above.  By adding CBD oils to this system, we support our body in the same way we use nutrients and other herbs to support our health.

Now understand that Cannabis associated with marijuana contains the two primary cannabinoids, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol – about 40% of the plant’s extract).  THC has the psychoactive properties associated with “getting high” but also very helpful in modulating the pain of cancer and other diseases.  But hemp, legally produced today in the US, contains primarily CBD and has virtually zero psychoactive properties.  It particularly functions to modulate our neurochemistry, our immune system and multiple organs and systems.  In other words CBD is far more extensive and profound in its effects than THC.   In fact CBD has been found to:

  • Act as an anti-bacterial                               decrease seizure activity
  • Inhibit cancer cell growth                            decrease risk of artery blockage
  • Act to protect brain neurons                       decrease nausea and vomiting
  • Decrease blood sugar                                 suppress muscle spasms
  • Promote bone growth                                 decrease inflammation
  • Relieve pain and anxiety                              increase insulin sensitivity
  • Improves mitochondrial function

Its effects in the body, as you can see, are deep and wide.  Even the suckling reflex of a baby to receive milk from its mother stimulates part of the endocannabinoid system.  And if you would suspect that chocolate, in some way might have some special effect on this system, you would be correct.  But there is no drug that can treat this amazing body system.

Most people use CBD to reduce pain and anxiety, improve their mood, depression and sleep.  With sleep it seems to decrease excessive REM sleep (dream stage) and increase stage 4 (deep) sleep.  Thus, there is an improvement in the depth and duration of sleep.  The gut is calmed, nutrient absorption is improved and many report improvement with brain fog.  Some of these effects are perhaps due to its ability to assist in the correction, mobilization and elimination of toxins that affect our organs and systems.  While it does not detoxify itself, it greatly assists the body’s detoxification activity – even accomplishing this on a system level as well as at the cellular level.

The detoxification effect is greatly enhanced by its effect on the gut where it is thought that it improves the tight junctions (helping to eliminate a leaky gut) and by modulating the gut contractions, it improves constipation and slows down diarrhea.

The activity of CBD on the immune system is equally remarkable.  It has a modulating effect on the immune cells and actually has been found to decrease inflammatory cytokines and increase the anti-inflammatory substances.  In this respect it tempers autoimmune activity and promotes apoptosis (cell suicide) in the cancer cell.  But with cancer, their appears to be a synergistic effect when using CBD with THC as a few states are allowing.

Microbiologist Dr. Christine Sanchez of Compultense University in Madrid, Spain has been studying cannabinoids and cancer since the early 2000s. She was the first to discover the antitumor effects of cannabinoids.  In a video interview for the web-based cable channel Cannabis Planet, Dr. Sanchez and other researchers have confirmed that the most potent effects against tumor growth occur when THC and CBD are combined.  Cannabidiol, or CBD, has the ability to interfere with cellular communication in tumors as well as in its ability to instigate apoptosis, or cell suicide and affect genes involved in metastasis.  THC has also been shown to reduce tumor growth in similar ways.

Studies have also been conducted on the combined effect of CBD and THC on lung, prostate, colon, pancreatic, liver, bladder, cervical, blood-based, brain, and other forms of cancer. These studies lend increasing evidence to the fact that cannabinoids are not only antioxidant phytonutrients but powerful “herbal chemo” agents.

Says Dr. Sanchez: “One of the advantages of cannabinoid-based medicines would be that they target specifically tumor cells. They don’t have any toxic effect on normal non-tumoral cells. This is an advantage with respect to standard chemotherapy that targets basically everything.”

But it even has an improving effect on some things you might not even expect, like gastric reflux.   Here it decreases the number of reflux events apparently by increasing the tone of the lower esophageal sphincter muscle.

Indeed, studies have shown it has beneficial activity in many diseases including, epilepsy, Irritable Bowel Disease and most all the neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS.  By its effect to dampen neurotoxicity, it has a powerful effect on brain function.   In fact the research on the effects of CBD on the brain and body and disease is very extensive.  According to Philip Blair, MD, who has used and extensively studied Cannabis and CBD, there are over 7,000 studies and 30,000 published articles on these compounds.   Some of these have revealed its adaptogenic effect on the cortisol release keeping it from going either too high or too low.

And yes, the pharmaceutical industry would love to create a synthetic version of CBD and you would be foolish to think that they are not seriously attempting to do so.  But while they will never be able to improve what the good Lord has provided us in nature, they would love to remove the natural and replace it with a much more expensive and far lower quality synthetic version.

In normal usage, experienced practitioners suggest 12 to 15 mg two to three times daily.  Some individuals find a lower level works very well but a number of others find a need to increase dosage.  If a normal dosage does not seem to have any effect you probably need to work with an experienced practitioner.  They may have you double your dosage in a couple of days as CBD appears to be helpful in at least 75% of those who use the correct dosage.

My preference is to use CBD in a liposomal form.  In this form the CBD oil is wrapped in a liposome made up of phosphatidylcholine, the very component that make up the walls of our cells.  Thus, in this way, the liposome easily enters our cells and delivers its CBD payload inside.  The liposomal form may be 3 to 5 times better absorbed then the standard forms of CBD oil.

But consider that when choosing a liposomal form, the size of the liposomes, are very important.  Most liposomes are way too large in the range of 300 to 5,000 nanometers (NM).   Liposomes in the range of 20 to 300 NM will be absorbed to a far greater extent.  The reason is because the longer the particle the faster they are cleared before being used in the body. And when the liposome is much smaller size, the liquid will also be clear.   Generally liposomal supplements greater than 200 NM are milky while those less than 100NM are clear.  Most of the liposomes from Quicksilver Scientific, the one I have for patients, are from 50 to 100 NM.

The effects of CBD on the body can begin in 10 minutes to 1 hour and will last 2 to 4 hours but sometimes up to 6 hours.  In addition, you should know that it is not a bad idea to pulse your use of CBD.  You do this by using it for 5 to 6 days followed by a day or two of nonuse.  This helps to maintain the efficacy of the oil without the need to increase the amount needed for resolutions of symptoms

CBD oil is legal in all 50 states and its cultivation and growth is regulated by the FDA.  But know your source!  Unfortunately, charlatans selling bogus products definitely exist. You should not have to pay exorbitant amounts of money for any cannabis product that you buy from regulated pharmacies, practitioners or online. Also, make quality a priority for you. Be sure that your product comes from an organic source and that you know that the plant has not been grown or processed using pesticides.

Mainstream medicine looks at clinical depression as a single entity rather than a collection of different disorders that must be treated differently.   They are essentially all treated with SSRI medications, drugs that are targeted toward the primary neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine and norepinephrine.  The result of this approach, as we will see below, is that some will benefit, some will not and some will get worse.  A much better outcome would result if depressed and anxious patients would be given specific laboratory tests to determine their particular depressive biotype.

The biotypes by Dr. Walsh were developed with a database of 2,800 patients and over 300,000 chemical analyses of their blood and urine.  This huge database found that the depressed population had blood and urine chemistries that were significantly different from the general population which lead to the development of the 5 biotypes.

5 Types of Depression, how they are determined and how to improve

1. Undermethylated Depression (38 -40% of depressed individuals)

    a. Symptoms and traits of undermethylated depression
—Adverse reaction to folic acid High inner tension but calm demeanor
—Obsessive-compulsive tendencies History of perfectionism
—Self-motivated Seasonal inhalant allergies
—Good response to antihistamines High libido
—Low tolerance to pain High fluidity (tears, saliva etc.)
—Very strong-willed Competitiveness in sports
—High suicidal tendency addictiveness
—Sparse chest/leg/arm hair busy mind w/ negative self-talk
—Denial of depression frequent headaches
—Family history of high accomplishment noncompliance with therapies
—Rumination thoughts about past events oppositional defiance as child

b. Undermethylated depressed patients are low in serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine
c. These individuals are often deficient in calcium, vitamin D and magnesium
d. Many also have a pyrrole disorder as well (this is biotype #4 below)
e. These individuals will not do well with folate, choline, copper, DMAE and pantothenic acid (B5)but will do well on supplements that improve methylation and supplements that enhance the neurotransmitters Tryptophan and dopamine
f. Individuals in this category come with two traits that tend to negate successful outcomes – denial of depression and non-compliance with any medical treatment
g. With tests for confirmation:

Whole blood Histamine level (will likely be elevated – above 70ng/ml)
A depressed SAMe/SAH ratio

2. Folate Deficiency Depression (about 20% of depressed individuals) these are overmethylated

a. Symptoms and Traits of Low Folate Depression

—Improvement after folate therapy High anxiety and panic tendency
—Adverse reactions to SSRIs hirsutism (males only)
—Food and chemical sensitivities low libido
—Dry eyes and mouth sleep disorder
—High artistic abilities and interest underachievement in school
—Nervous legs, pacing high pain threshold
—Noncompetitive in sports/games adverse reaction to SAMe, methionine
—Hyperactivity copper intolerance
—Upper body/head/neck pain Learning disabilities
—Estrogen intolerance
—Hallucinations – paranoid

The presence of 40% of the above symptoms is consistent with a folate biotype depression

  • b. These individuals report intolerance to SSRIs, antidepressants and antihistamines
  • c. Academic underachievement and incidence of ADHD is about 3 times higher than those in the undermethylated biotype
  • d. Individuals of this biotype should not use supplements of tryptophan, 5HTP, phenylalanine, tyrosine, copper and inositol – it will likely make them worse.  They generally have high levels of serotonin and dopamine.
  • e. Very likely that most of the school/movie theater shooters are in this group
  • f. If B12 is used it should be Hydroxyl or adenosyl B12 but not Methyl B12 (methylcobalamine)
  • g. With testing for confirmation:
  • Whole blood histamine (will generally be low – below 40ng/ml)
    Serum folate (will also be low)
    Methylation profile (an elevated SAMe/SAH ratio)

3. Copper Overload (hypercupremic) Depression (about 17% of depressed individuals)

      • a. Symptoms and Traits of Copper Overload Depression
—Severe anxiety, even panic Sleep disorder
—Hormone imbalances Hyperactivity in childhood
—Skin sensitivity to metals/rough fabrics ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
—Intolerance to estrogen/shellfish/chocolate inability to tan
—Severe worsening of depression after hormone therapy
—Intolerant of birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy

 

      • b. 96% of individuals with this biotype are women with the first episode of depression occurring during a hormonal event – puberty, childbirth, menopause, etc.
      • c. Individuals with this biotype have elevated norepinephrine but a depressed dopamine. Norepinephrine elevations have been associated with anxiety, panic and sleep problems
      • d. Elevated serum copper is commonly found in women with a history of postpartum depression.  They seem to have a genetic or acquired inability to eliminate excess copper after a pregnancy
      • e. Plasma zinc levels are generally low in individuals with this biotype
      • f. Tests for confirmation generally show an elevated serum copper level, depressed plasma zin
      • 4. Pyroluric Depression (about 15% of depressed individuals)
      • a. Symptoms and Traits of Pyroluric Depression
—Severe mood swings Inability to cope with stress
—Rages Absence of dream recall
—Inability to tan – sunlight sensitivity Morning nausea
—Sensitivity to bright lights & loud noises Slender wrists, ankles & neck
—Great midsection fat and upper thighs Delayed puberty
—Disturbed menstrual periods/amenorrhea Social anxiety –stiff personality
—Bipolar individuals Lots of fears
—Obsessions with disasters Internal tension – tense feeling
—Poor short-term memory Pale complexion
—Antisocial personality disorder (sociopath) but no criminal tendencies
      • b. Most pyrolurics experience about 50% of the above symptoms and traits
      • c. Pyroluria is a genetically determined chemical imbalance involving an abnormality in hemoglobin synthesis resulting in a severe deficiency of zinc and vitamin B6
      • d. Onset of depression in this group is often triggered by a severe emotional or physical trauma.  Stress of all types increases the levels of pyrroles in the individual
      • e. This biotype tends to respond more quickly to nutrient therapy than other biotypes
      • f. Individuals of this biotypes cannot tolerate nutrients (or food) until lunchtime
      • g. These individuals are low in serotonin, Dopamine and GABA

5. Toxic Overload Depression (about 5% of depressed individuals)

      • a. Symptoms and Traits of Toxic Overload Depression
—Abdominal pain and cramping Increased irritability, even anger
—Headaches and muscle weakness Low energy
—Failure to respond to counseling or pharmaceutical drugs
—Depression that arises suddenly during a period of relative calm and wellness
      • b. This biotype is generally looked for when the other biotypes have been ruled out and there is no casein/gluten sensitivity or thyroid imbalance.
      • c. A provocation test for heavy metals will almost always reveal elevated levels on nearly everyone.  But in this group the toxic metals are also causing depression
      • d. The most common metal toxins are mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic
      • e. Other toxins can also cause depression including mold/fungal toxins, chemical toxins, toxic effects of viruses and bacteria and food toxins or food intolerances

Tests to Evaluate the 5 Biotypes

        • 1. Methylation Profile (plasma)
          • 2. Serum folate
        • 3. Metabolic panel (Kryptopyrrole, serum copper, zinc plasma & Whole blood Histamine
        • 4. EDTA/DMSA provocation of heavy metals (if all the above are negative)

————————————————————————————–

        • 5.Check ability for three step heel-to-toe walk

 

Please take note: you cannot determine methylation status, copper excess or zinc deficiency or some of the other biochemical abnormalities without proper testing.   Self diagnosis and supplementation without proper testing is never recommended .  Too many people will get their biotype completely wrong, and will likely make things far worse for themselves.

Nutritional and Lifestyle Support for those with Cancer

The following guidelines are not meant to replace your primary care practitioner or cancer specialist in the treatment of your disease.   It is in no way intended to treat your condition.  It is however supportive care in conjunction with your current treatment regime and with the support of your physician.  The list below is very long but comprehensive – follow as many as you can

General Guidelines and Dietary Recommendations

  1. No fried foods, sugar, junk foods.
  2. Regarding fats:  Less Omega 6 fats (soy, corn, safflower oils etc.) but increase Omega 3 fats: use 1TBS Cod Liver oil/day (fermented Cod liver oil is my preference) or 3-4 caps of Krill oil.  These will also be found to a lesser extent in grass-fed meats and butter from grass-fed cows
  3. No non-stick cookware and avoid microwave cooking, frying or charbroiling your food.  Boiling or steaming is much preferred.
  4. Low Carbohydrate/low glycemic foods – less grains and keep insulin levels low.  Cancer cells need plenty of insulin to bring glucose (sugar) to itself.  Sugar is cancer fuel.
  5. Avoid “whites” – white flour, white rice, white sugar (and even brown or raw sugar)
  6. Use only butter or coconut oil when cooking – Olive oil on salads is perfectly fine.
  7. Lots of raw foods – get a juicer and juice vegetables – especially brightly or deeply colored vegetables.   Alternatively use green, red, purple and orange food powders from health-food stores.  Otherwise lightly steamed vegetables may be much easier to digest
  8. Eat fermented foods like Bubbies sauerkraut, Kimchi or other fermented vegetables
  9. Add some detoxifying foods – garlic, green tea, whey, celery, turmeric, cilantro
  10. Use only meats from animals that are fully grass-fed and not given hormones or antibiotics and free from pesticides or herbicide contamination
  11. Eat fresh organic vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, etc) which have been identified as having strong anti-cancer properties.
  12. Eat organic eggs only.  Enjoy them hard-boiled, be careful when fried; do use the wrong oils
  13. Get antioxidants and other powerful healing nutrients from colorful foods, red and blue berries, cherries, beans, artichokes and deep green colored foods.
  14. If you use dairy foods try to obtain and use raw milk and dairy products such as yoghurt, cheese, butter (all very healthy foods) from grass-fed cows or goats.  Always avoid typical store-bought products from animals confined, grain-fed, and produced with antibiotics and rGBH growth hormone from Monsanto
  15. Avoid soy products (unless fermented) due to their anti-thyroid effects, difficulty in digestion and genetic modification (GMO)
  16. Consider the need to completely avoid gluten to which many individuals are genetically intolerant or allergic.  It can be very inflammatory
  17. Decrease your inflammatory foods – see Anti-inflammatory diet program on separate handout
  18. Be sure you have regular bowel movements – at least one or two daily
  19. Take time to exercise but do not get overtired and get regular and adequate sleep – 7 to 8 hours in a completely dark room.  No TV in the bedroom or alarm clock light

Therapeutics Aids and Support

  • Vitamin D – Sunlight and /or Vitamin D, up to 4-5,000 IUs per day – Check your Vitamin D level.  It should be 65 – 100 ng/ml.  Check 2-3 times a year to ensure you are in that range.  The higher your Vit. D level the lower your risk
  • With increased use of Vit. D you need to take Vitamin K2 (1000mc)daily or even better MK7 (a very active form of K2) 160mcg/day
  • Boost Selenium levels – as a supplement or with Brazil nuts
  • Increase cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts etc)  or take DIM as a supplement
  • Vitamin B6 – studies suggest it decreases risk of colon cancer 50% – You might consider a good B complex (natural sourced food-based is best)
  • Use N-Acetyl Cysteine and Milk thistle if on chemotherapy.  It is helpful liver support with or without chemotherapy
  • Medicinal mushrooms – Maitake, Shiitake, Ganoderma Lucidum, Coriolus versicolor , Reishi, etc – are very supportive of the immune function along with  a product called ImmPower.
  • CoEnzyme Q10 – use 200 mg twice daily or ubquinol form of CoQ10, 100 mg twice daily
  • Check pH of urine regularly – your body is supported best with an alkaline environment.  Cancer thrives in an acid environment.   The first morning urine should be 6.4 – 7.0.  If below 6.4 use Coral minerals powder ¾ tsp twice daily in a small amount of juice or tea.
  • Tocotrienols are anti-angiogenic in nature – use 2-3 caps at bedtime
  • Turmeric is a marvelous spice with many anti-cancerous properties.  Use the newer type of turmeric with enhanced absorption – i.e. CuraPro  Turmeric is one of the best anti-inflammatory, health promoting foods on the planet
  • Liposomal Vitamin C – high dose vitamin C in an intravenous form has been used successfully by a number of alternative cancer doctors.  You can mimic the I.V. approach by using the liposomal form of vitamin C. (4 to 12 grams in divided doses/day). Nearly 100% of it will get into the cell.  Much of the other forms of vitamin C in high quantities are excreted in in very loose stools.  Adding Liposomal Glutathione is an excellent addition along with liposomal vitamin C
  • Proteolytic enzymes are also used by a number of doctors treating cancer alternatively.  They are always used on an empty stomach and can be taken at a dose of 5-6 tablets, 5-6 times daily.  But some practitioners use substantially higher amounts.  It appears the enzymes work by digesting cancer cells and decreasing inflammation
  • Artimisinin 200 mg. Once /day increasing to 300 mg. Twice daily
  • Cytokine support – Cytokines are involved in every disease either by promoting the disease or by inhibiting it.  Some cytokines are very pro-inflammatory and others are very anti-inflammatory.  Cytokine therapy used in the support of the cancer fight are designed to enable your body to decrease inflammation, suppress the growth and anchoring of the tumor, inhibit the development of blood vessels that feed the tumor, suppress tumor activity and enhance apoptosis or the self-destruction of the cancer cell.  The primary cytokines to consider are:
    1. Rerio – 20 drops twice daily for 1-2 months, then 3X weekly for 2-4 months

These are from the GUNA Company but you will need
to find a practitioner that uses them in his/her practice

  1. Anti-IL1 – 20 drops twice daily for 1 month, then 3X weekly for 1-2 months
  2. Interferon Alpha (IFN α)
  3. Interleukin 4        (IL-4)
  4. Interleukin 12     (IL-12)
  5. Optional – Use Basic – 1 packet for 5-10 days in a row then 3X weekly for 1 month.  Break for 10 days and repeat.  This is designed to alkalize the body (cancer is an acid lover).
  • If you don’t use fermented vegetables, be sure to use a good quality probiotic to your program

Other Options that may be Helpful – check Internet sources

  • Graviola – 2-4 grams/day

Detoxification
You may need supportive detoxification of liver, kidney, lymph, large intestine – especially if using chemotherapeutic drugs.   A great detoxification support protocol:  CysReplete, 2 capsules 3 times daily, NeuroReplete, 2caps twice daily.  This will provide lots of Cysteine needed for the sulfur amino acids –SAMe and glutathione.  A deficiency of the sulfur amino acids and methylation is the primary reason for many chronic diseases.

Test Suggestions for Further Evaluation

  • Chiren evaluation and treatment – To my thinking this may be the most important thing to assist in the body’s healing process.   By relieving the body of all the burdens it already has, much more energy is available to assist the body in its fight against the cancer.   This should be done if possible prior to standard interventions and for sure after these interventions.
  • Iodine – check for inadequate levels especially with breast cancer – most people are deficient and you may need to supplement
  • Toxic/Heavy metal analysis – mercury and other toxic metals are found in substantially higher amounts in individuals with cancer than in individuals without cancer.
  • Determine your Vitamin D level
  • Thermography evaluation

To Avoid

  • Anything with parabens
  • “Plastic” materials with BPA – including cash register receipts, contact lens, dental floss
  • Fragrances are mostly xenoestrogens and mimic estrogens in the body along with many chemicals
  • Pesticides – buy organic
  • X-Rays, but especially mammograms and Cat Scans involve exposure to very high levels of radiation.  Have these procedures only when absolutely necessary
  • Don’t carry cell phones in your bra

Prescription Medicines

  • Statins doubled the risk of breast cancer in one study
  • Calcium channel blockers are associated with increased risk
  • Antibiotic usage has a linear correlation with increased risk
  • Oral contraceptives and post-menopausal synthetic hormones are not at all recommended

Spiritual and Emotional Factors

  • An unforgiving spirit has a terrible effect on the body and brain but forgiveness is a powerful healer.  Do not withhold forgiveness for anyone including yourself
  • Reduce your stress, meditate, pray,  read scripture and trust God with any outcome
  • Believe in yourself, believe in healing and believe in restoration
  • Live in peace, surround yourself with joy, laughter and a positive attitude, regardless

Anyone who has suffered with chronic depression knows all too well how terribly painful an experience it is.  A few find answers, most don’t.  Those who don’t, understand the maxim, “the death of hope leads to the hope for death.”

But is there any reason to be very hopeful?  Chronic depression is unquestionably linked to inadequate levels of neurotransmitters (serotonin, dopamine etc), due to damaged neuron bundles in the brain that regulate and prevent depression.  But unfortunately there are over 1100 known neurotoxins, whose damage to these neurons is cumulative over a lifetime.  Perhaps this is why standard drug therapy for depression (reuptake inhibitors like Prozac™, Zoloft™, etc) is not found in seniors to be any more effective than a placebo.  But hardly any more impressive is that several studies of adults have revealed a startling fact.  Reuptake inhibitors as a class of drugs provided relief of depression not much better than a placebo.  The Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that the benefit of antidepressant medication compared to a placebo, in mild to moderate depression, may be on average, minimal to nonexistent.  Newsweek magazine concluded that scientists are beginning to see these drugs as expensive Tic Tacs.

So if we are to be hopeful at all it will not come from drugs which never increase the number of neurotransmitters, but from amino acids (building blocks of proteins/neurotransmitters) and their cofactor nutrients.  Having used this type of brain nutrition for over 30 years, I can assure you there is reason to have hope – and not just for depression but for all the other symptoms of neurotransmitter dysfunction as well, including ADD/ADHD, insomnia, Parkinson’s, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, IBS and many others.

Not long ago I was seeing a patient with symptoms of inadequate neurotransmitters – anxiety, chronic pain, depression and insomnia.  She was a middle-aged female with a tragic family history.  She had aunts with a history of depression and nervous breakdown and one was in a mental institution.  Her father was an alcoholic and her mother was schizophrenic.  Like the rest of her family her sisters had gone the traditional route and were on antidepressants.

I started this patient on a specific amino acid protocol with the necessary cofactors and essential fatty acids, all designed to provide the brain with the nutrients necessary to enhance and balance the neurotransmitters.

Three weeks into our program she was amazed to find that every bit of muscle pain that she had lived with for years was completely gone, and for the first time she can remember, she slept through the night.  She was surprised at how calm she became.  Gone were the nervousness, anxiety, angry outbursts, 40 extra pounds and a lifetime of depression.

Seven months into her care she casually mentioned to me that she had not cried in the last 7 months.  Curious, I asked what she meant by that.  Incredibly, prior to beginning amino acid therapy, this one-time transcriber for psychiatrists, who decided to take a different path to healing, had lived for years with a daily bout with tears.  Even as a child she remembers crying excessively.

The protocol for amino acid precursors I use was developed by Marty Hinz, MD, of NeuroResearch.  You can access their website at www.neuroassist.com.  You can also read more on my website.  www.hotspringsnutritionandnaturalhealingcenter.com.

There is hope for depression; it does not have to be a lifetime of agony.  Find a practitioner using amino acid precursors and don’t forget to consider hypothyroid and food allergy as a part of the healing process.  Get adequate “B” and “D” Vitamins, Omega 3 fatty acids, exercise regularly, and get checked for mercury and other heavy metals.  It may not take you all the way to ecstasy but you can enjoy life a whole lot more.

My undergraduate education in the acquisition of my Bachelor of Arts degree was earned at Pacific Union College in northern California.  I did take one year of those four, studying abroad at Newbold College near London, England.  Following graduation I was drafted into the United States Army where I served for two years at the United States Infectious Disease Center at Fort Detrick, Maryland.  Most of the time there I spent in the clinical laboratory processing all types of laboratory specimens – human and animal. In 1973 I began my graduate degree work at Loma Linda University; and in 1976 I graduated with a Masters degree in Nutrition and a Doctorate degree in Preventive Care.  Upon graduation I was appointed Director of the Department of Preventive Care, at Hinsdale Family Medicine Center, Hinsdale, ILL.   This position included a faculty appointment, teaching family practice residents preventive care, naturopathic principles, health education, clinical nutrition and also seeing their patients.  In addition I was also a Senior Health Educator of the Health Education Department for Hinsdale Hospital.  In this capacity I would conduct as well as assist other educators in education classes, teaching classes for the community college and nurses in their training curriculum. I was in Hinsdale, Illinois for two years before coming to beautiful Hot Springs, Arkansas in 1978.  For two years I worked with two physicians and other health professionals prior to opening my Naturopathic Health Center to practice Naturopathy, Clinical Nutrition, and Preventive Care. In 1997 it was my privilege to pursue additional education at a new university in Washington, DC, Capital University of Integrative Medicine.  I applied myself to those studies and in 1999 I graduated (as valedictorian of my class) with a Doctor of Integrative Medicine (Naturopathy) degree.  After graduation I was asked to chair the Natural Medicine Department and did so for the next 7 years until the close of the university. I have been married to the same wonderful and beautiful girl for 45 years and we are still in love and still happy.  We had two great children who are both happily married and have now filled our lives with four of the best grandchildren in the world.  Could anything be better? With the academic and personal information outlined above, I list for your perspective, my awards, additional training, memberships and other pertinent information for you to review.
