Effective Allergen Control Strategies

Considering the fact that most people spend at least half their day confined inside their homes, it is very important to have an allergen-free environment. Allergens are unhealthy for everyone and can be particularly harsh on those suffering from respiratory ailments like asthma or emphysema. Microscopic airborne contaminants not only make it harder to breathe, they also can cause coughs, sore throats, nasal problems and watery eyes. Chances are very good that if you always feel weak and tired, allergens in your home are at least partly responsible. Homeowners can employ a number of different allergen control strategies that can help keep the air that you breathe as clean as possible. There is no such thing as 100% pure air in any house, but the following steps can certainly make a big improvement in the overall quality of the air you breathe every day. Air Filters The use of quality filters to...

Health Dangers of EMF Exposure: Help us Fight for Action

Mobile Phone Mast
The other day I was contacted by new EiR member Emfsafety100 about the potential dangers the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from our modern technology, such as power lines, wireless internet and cell/mobile phones, pose to human health and also to wildlife. Emfsafety100 reported coming across the global non-profit organisation Avaaz, who have a simple democratic mission: “to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want”. If you aren’t familiar with this organization, their campaigns typically address environmental issues, corruption and human rights. If enough people ask Avaaz to lobby the World Health Organisation to review the EMF exposure safety guidelines, they would take action. Such a campaign would immediately enlist the support of many of their 9 million-plus members and would raise public awareness of the industry influence in the EMF safety debate. I will be suggesting a campaign to have EMF safety concerns...

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the Family: Same Diagnosis, Different Symptoms

My sister Lindsay and myself
As a family of four, three of us have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Myself, my mother and my younger sister. My mother and I were diagnosed in 1991 when I was aged 12 and she was 39. My sister became ill when she was 15/16 years old in 1998. Obviously this is has been a tragedy of indescribable proportions for us as a family. My sister and I have (so far) had our youths and young adulthood stolen and our mum was not only struck down in the prime of her life but has had to watch both of her children suffer horribly, directly as a result of CFS and also due to society's attitude towards it. That we are certainly not the only family to be in this horrible situation is certainly no comfort. I would not wish this illness on anyone....

Causes Of Sleep Problems You May Not Have Considered If You Have Environmental Illnesses

Woman with sleep problems
Sleep problems are common among the general population but particularly so among those suffering from 'environmental', or 'invisible', illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia (FMS) and multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). Everyone will be familiar with common causes of insomnia and poor sleep quality such as consumption of stimulants like caffeine (coffee, tea, soda/fizzy drinks) and psychological factors such as work or relationship stresses. For those suffering from environmental illnesses there may be other less obvious contributors to sleep problems, however.   Hypoglycaemia Hypoglycaemia, or low blood sugar, is frequantly experienced by those suffering from environmental illnesses and is exacerbated by a diet that contains significant amounts of foods containing sugar or refined carbohydrates e.g. candy/sweets, chocolate, white bread, white pasta, white rice, baked goods, fast food. When levels of blood sugar (glucose) drop too low or too rapidly it is the brain that is affected first since it...

Salt water as effective as antibacterial wipes

Bacteria
I stumbled across an interesting snippet in a science magazine the other day about a study conducted by researchers at the University of Alberta, Canada. The scientists had observed that hospital staff habitually give surfaces only a single quick wipe with antibacterial products in order to disinfect them. They wondered if the number of wipes was important for bugs to be successfully removed from surfaces. The main results themselves are interesting because it was found that one wipe is not enough and that in fact, three wipes is optimal to properly disinfect surfaces and equipment. What is also interesting however, particularly to those of us affected by environmental illnesses, is the finding that if wiping a surface three times a simple saline solution (salt water) is as effective at removing nasty bugs as the antibacterial wipes, sanitizers and other products impregnated with chemical disinfectants such as triclosan. These products have...

Epidemiology of autism - its been a busy few days

One of the 'hot' topics of autism research is the question of 'how many people present with an autism spectrum condition'? I don't have the answer by the way, but there are a few recent papers which seem to be pointing at a few interesting figures. Indeed the last week or so has been an interesting time for those with an interest in the epidemiology of autism. First there was the findings from a UK study looking at the prevalence of autism spectrum conditions in an adult population (16 years +). The paper abstract can be viewed here but the paper summary: (1) an initial autism traits screening questionnaire was completed by nearly 7,500 participants; (2) 618 participants were invited for a more detailed follow-up interview; (3) the weighted prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in adults was estimated to be 9.8 per 1,000 (approaching 1% of the population); (4) none of those diagnosed with an ASD...

Lactose intolerance and autism

Autism seems constantly to be in the news. This week is no exception following the publication of a paper suggestive that the prevalence of adults with autism is hovering around the 1% mark - similar to that suggested for children. Whilst such work gathers quite a lot of media headline coverage, other pieces of research seem to quietly pass by with hardly a thought or mention. One such study is this titled: 'Intestinal disaccharidase activity in patients with autism: effect of age, gender and intestinal inflammation' published in Autism. http://aut.sagepub.com/content/early/2011/03/07/1362361310369142.abstract The paper by Tim Buie and colleagues from Harvard Medical School is an interesting one. Buie has some interest in autism given his Chairing role in the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) position paper on gastrointestinal factors associated with autism last year. The recent paper from his team makes for some pretty interesting reading, not least with the suggestion that 58%...

Faecal Transplants and Human Probiotic Infusions (HPI): Mainstream Media Attention

Most people suffering from environmental illnesses experience gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms of some kind, or show other signs that something is not quite right in the gut. Perhaps tests such as a comprehensive digestive stool analysis (CDSA), or equivalent, reveal an imbalance in the normal balance of bacteria, yeast, and other microbes that is essential for overall health. Research has revealed pathological changes in the composition of the gut flora (gut dysbiosis) in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia, and autism...and this is a relatively new area of study so this may only be the tip of the iceberg. The most common (and most widely accepted) finding has been the presence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) in IBS, ME/CFS and fibromyalgia. Healthy individuals have very little bacterial growth in their small intestines (most gut microbes reside in the colon) - SIBO is the presence of large numbers...

New Study on Tourette's and the Brain: Greater, Not Lesser, Motor Control

care2.com posted by: Kristina Chew Tourette's Syndrome is a neurological disordered characterized by 'repetitive, stereotyped, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics,' according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). While these movements might suggest that those with the disorder have less cognitive control over their movements, a new study published in Cell Biology suggests the opposite: http://www.care2.com/causes/health-policy/blog/new-study-on-tourettes-and-the-brain/...

Policy on Lyme Disease and Tick-Borne Infections: A Community Agenda

Policy on Lyme Disease and Tick-Borne Infections: A Community Agenda
The following is the Preface and Introduction to an extensive 26 page article on Lyme disease and tick-borne infections (TBIs) by Kate Bloor (followed by a link to the full article in PDF format). Kate argues that a coordinated effort is required, from  government policy at the top down to local community efforts at the bottom, to prevent the spread of TBIs and the incidence of Lyme disease, which as many will know is extremely difficult to treat once it becomes chronic. It is focused on the UK but the information is relevent to those of you in the US, Canada, and elsewhere.  If you or any of your loved ones suffers from Lyme disease, TBIs, or multi-system illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome (often misdiagnosed Lyme disease), I urge you to read the full article and take action to implement its recommendations.   POLICY ON LYME DISEASE (AND TICK-BORNE INFECTIONS) IN ENGLAND AND THE...

ME findings an insult to victims

Belfast Telegraph Wednesday, 16 March 2011 We as an ME patients' organisation must protest at the waste of £5m of public money by a group of psychologists and psychiatrists.   They have spent this amount in six years finding that increasing exercise is good for sick and exhausted ME patients and that they can be talked out of illness by cognitive behaviour therapy. To sufferers, this survey is a preposterous and expensive insult. ME leaves 25% of its victims bed bound for life. Neurologists and virologists must pursue the findings of the Whittemore-Peterson Institute, which found ME patients to be carrying the retrovirus XMRV. This charity has raised over £9,000 for research and it is a scandal that patients have to fund research into their own illness.

A Natural History Study of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Rehabil Psychol. 2011 Feb;56(1):32-42. A natural history study of chronic fatigue syndrome. Jason LA, Porter N, Hunnell J, Brown A, Rademaker A, Richman JA. DePaul University. Abstract   Objective: There is a need for natural history chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) studies from random, community-based, multi-ethnic populations. Design: The present study examined the course of CFS from Wave 1 to Wave 2, which spanned over a ten year period of time, and, assessed whether socio-environmental and symptomatology factors were associated with CFS status over the ten year period. Results: There was relative stability over time on critical measures of disability, fatigue, support, optimism and coping over time. One cardinal symptoms of CFS, post-exertional malaise, best differentiated the CFS group from the others. By Wave 2, of the original group of 32 individuals diagnosed with CFS, 4 had died, and 24 were found and agreed to be re-evaluated, and of this group, 16 continued to have...

Video of Dr. Jose Montoya speaking at Stanford University on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Uploaded by StanfordHospital on Mar 11, 2011 Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a disorder that causes extreme fatigue that is unchanged with rest and which interferes with one's ability to attend to daily activities. It is often accompanied with an array of symptoms that can include muscle pain, memory problems, headaches, pain in multiple joints, sleep problems, sore throat and tender lymph nodes. Since other illnesses can cause similar symptoms, CFS is hard to diagnose. Dr. Montoya discusses CFS and current research regarding diagnosis and treatment and the possible CFS-infection connection: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Riybtt6SChU The Stanford CFS website: http://chronicfatigue.stanford.edu/

Ferritin, Iron and Hypothyroidism

by Janie Patient Advocate and Author of "Stop The Thyroid Madness"   Ferritin, Iron and Hypothyroidism A large body of thyroid patients have been surprised to discover that being hypothyroid also results in having low Ferritin, or storage iron. Ferritin is an iron-storage protein which keeps the iron in a dissolvable and usable state, making the iron non-toxic to cells around it.  So when Ferritin is measured via a blood test, it is basically measuring the iron you have tucked away for safe use. Why is measuring storage iron important? To find out more please click onto the below weblink: http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/ferritin/

Hashimoto's Disease Can Affect Quality of Life Even When Thyroid Is Normal

by Mary Shomon Patient advocate and Author March 7, 2011 New research published in the journal Thyroid has shown that Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease and the most common cause of hypothyroidism -- an underactive thyroid -- in the U.S., has an effect on quality of life. Specifically, the study found that even when the thyroid levels are "normal," Hashimoto's thyroiditis can increase symptoms and reduce the quality of life: http://thyroid.about.com/b/2011/03/07/hashimotos-thyroid.htm?nl=1

PACE trial aftermath: ME Association writes to the Science Media Centre

MAY BE REPOSTED MEA letter to Science Media Centre regarding press coverage of the PACE trial results PACE trial aftermath: ME Association writes to the Science Media Centre by tonybritton on March 10, 2011 The following email has been sent today to Fiona Fox (Director) and Helen Jamison (Senior Press Officer) at the Science Media Centre. Dear Ms Fox and Ms Jamison The ME Association has a number of concerns about the way in which the Science Media Centre is dealing with the subject of ME/CFS and presenting it to the media. There is a wide spectrum of medical opinion as to what causes this condition and how it should be managed. However, this is not being reflected in the views of the ‘medical experts’ you choose to go to when an ME/CFS research paper appears. The most recent example is the SMC press release - http://www.sciencemediacentre.org/pages/press_releases/11-02-17_cfsme_trial.htm – covering publication...

Thyroid Disease 8 Risks And 8 Causes

By Elaine Savard The thyroid, a butterfly shaped gland wrapped around the windpipe, is located in the neck behind and below the Adams apple. It is labelled as the "master" gland because of its many functions in the body such as producing key hormones, regulating body temperature, and managing metabolism. This gland has the only cells in the body that can absorb iodine which it combines with the amino acid tyrosine to produce the hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Thyroid disease is one of the most common, misdiagnosed disease, and symptoms are often overlooked. Women's risks of developing a thyroid condition is seven times greater than men. A women also has a one in five chance of developing problems with this gland in her lifetime. What are some of the causes of thyroid disease: Radiation treatment that was used to treat acne, on the tonsils, adenoids, lymph nodes and...

Thyroid Nutrition

By Nikolas Hedberg The Thyroid Diet If you have a thyroid problem, the way you should eat is very similar to that of an individual who does not have a thyroid issue. Organic foods contain fewer amounts of chemicals and pesticides and can have a negative effect on the thyroid gland. The main goals of a thyroid diet are those which remove any stress from the thyroid gland itself and any systems that may be affecting the thyroid gland. The first major priority in eating to have a healthy thyroid is to make sure you do not have blood sugar swings. This requires consistent eating throughout the day of high-quality protein at every meal without eating too many carbohydrates. Remember that blood sugar swings not only affect the thyroid gland itself but also indirectly affect adrenal gland function which, as previously discussed, is highly connected to thyroid physiology. The ideal...

Fatigue

by Dr Sarah Myhill MB BS Fatigue is the commonest symptom experienced by people and the worst treated symptom by conventional medicine. This is why this section is so large! Chronic fatigue syndrome is a particularly severe form of fatigue, but everyone, including trained athletes. can improve their energy levels, performance and efficiency by applying the principles in this section. As we age we all develop fatigue - again applying all these principles helps us to slow the normal ageing process. As always the starting point is The general approach to maintaining and restoring good health. The bolt on extras for fatigue include diet and fermenting gut (fuel in the tank), sleep (regular service time), mitochondrial function (the engine of your car), hypothyroidism (the accelerater pedal) adrenal function (the gear box), detoxing (catalytic converter and exhaust pipe), methylation cycle (tool box) Edge Effect (driver of the car) etc. People ofeten...

Hormonal Problems

by Dr Sarah Myhill MB BS The commonest hormonal problems I see in everyday clinical practice are thyroid disorders and adrenal problems. Using a car analogy, if the body represents a car, the thyroid gland is the accelerator pedal and the adrenal gland the gearbox. We are seeing an epidemic of hypothyroidism, which I guess is a combination of iodine deficiency and toxic stress (from fluorides, bromides, pesticide, heavy metal accumulations and possibly radiation). Borderline hypothyroidism is treated very badly in UK for a very simple reason. The population reference range as established by laboratories is not the same thing as one's personal normal range. Once this idea is accepted then the rationale for using thyroid hormones as I do falls into place and the scientific evidence underpinning this is given in the Position statement for prescribing thyroid hormones (to be finalised and published by the British Society for Ecological...

Peripheral Metabolism of Thyroid Hormones

Alternative Medicine Review, August, 2000 by Greg Kelly Abstract Peripheral metabolism of thyroid hormones is a critical component of the impact these hormones have on intracellular function. Thyroid hormones can be metabolized in peripheral tissue by deiodination, conjugation, deamination, and decarboxylation enzyme reactions. Therefore, alterations in these metabolic pathways might significantly impact the quantity of specific thyroid hormone metabolites influencing function at the cellular level. Available evidence also suggests that, under some circumstances, the activity of hepatic antioxidant enzyme systems and lipid peroxidation might influence the peripheral metabolism of thyroid hormones. Several syndromes, such as "euthyroid sick syndrome" and "low T3 syndrome," have been classified within the medical literature. The common feature of these disorders is a low level of circulating T3, with generally normal to slightly elevated blood T4 levels and either normal or slightly suppressed TSH levels. This pattern of altered thyroid hormone levels is generally agreed to...

Cortisol — Its Role in Stress, Inflammation, and Indications for Diet Therapy

Today’s Dietitian Vol. 11 No. 11 P. 38 November 2009 Issue By Dina Aronson, MS, RD   Cortisol, a glucocorticoid (steroid hormone), is produced from cholesterol in the two adrenal glands located on top of each kidney. It is normally released in response to events and circumstances such as waking up in the morning, exercising, and acute stress. Cortisol’s far-reaching, systemic effects play many roles in the body’s effort to carry out its processes and maintain homeostasis. Of interest to the dietetics community, cortisol also plays an important role in human nutrition. It regulates energy by selecting the right type and amount of substrate (carbohydrate, fat, or protein) the body needs to meet the physiological demands placed on it. When chronically elevated, cortisol can have deleterious effects on weight, immune function, and chronic disease risk. Cortisol (along with its partner epinephrine) is best known for its involvement in the “fight-or-flight”...

The Thyroid-Adrenal-Pancreas Axis

Thyroid-Adrenal-Pancreas (TAP) Axis
by Nikolas Hedberg, D.C., D.A.B.C.I. on February 24, 2011 In addition to gastrointestinal and blood sugar disorders, adrenal gland dysfunction is the most commonly seen imbalance in today’s society.  Adrenal gland imbalances are also one of the major factors that cause thyroid hormone imbalance.  Stress from work, relationships, electronics, poor diet choices such as consumption of refined carbohydrates and trans fats, infections, and environmental toxins all contribute to adrenal disorders. The Adrenal Glands The adrenal glands are about the size of a walnut and lie on top of the kidneys.  The outer adrenal cortex comprises eighty percent of the gland and produces many hormones including cortisol and DHEA from cholesterol.  Ninety percent of the cholesterol in the body is made by the liver and only ten percent comes from the diet.  Cholesterol converts into the hormone pregnenolone in the adrenal cortex which then converts to cortisol, the stress hormone, or...

Adrenal Exhaustion

A few interesting studies...

This and last week have been bumper weeks for interesting studies related to autism and ADHD. First, the Lancet published the results of a controlled trial on the use of a few-foods rotation diet on the symptoms of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The link to the abstract for the study by Pelsser and colleagues is shown below: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(10)62227-1/abstract A break down of the study and the main findings can be viewed here: http://evolutionarypsychiatry.blogspot.com/ In short, a very well conducted and controlled study that showed that diet can affect some cases of ADHD. As to how and why it works is more of a mystery. Second, a review study has been published looking at the connection between gastrointestinal disorders and autism spectrum conditons. The link to the abstract for the article by Chen and colleagues is shown below: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21297509 The results: the studies so far have a number of methodological issues...

Dairy in, dairy out

http://thehealthvoyage.com Well, after the excitement of finding a local raw dairy supplier and enjoying the process of learning and creating ghee, dairy in all forms (from cow’s milk at least) will be put on hold once again. I really crave the stuff, and seemingly no amount of purity, or the type, whether it’s milk, butter or yogurt can I eat regularly without some side effects. Like my trouble with eggs and a few other foods, for the most part my reaction manifests as cravings and wacky brain fog. Regardless of how healthy it may and ‘should’ be, when your sat there trying desperately not to spoon a whole jar of ghee into your mouth, you know the food has crossed that line between simply tasting good and feeding an addiction. Attempting tiny doses unfortunately doesn’t really help either. It has been a little tough to rationalise, but perhaps a useful...

Healing Autism: A Parent’s Complete Guide to New Natural Treatments

Healing Autism: A Parent’s Complete Guide to New Natural Treatments
The following information is for educational purposes only and is not meant to diagnose, treat, or prescribe any kind of disease or illness. It is a good idea to seek the professional advice of a qualified health care practitioner (remember Naturopaths are doctors too) before making any major changes in your self health care. The National Institutes of Health released funding of $60 million dollars for research last year.  Although autism is now considered an epidemic by many, modern medicine claims it lacks hard scientific evidence as to how autism initially onsets. In the 1970’s, autism occurred in 1out of every 10,000 children. Today, that number is 1 in 150 in the United States, even less in the U.K. where Cambridge University just came out with a study where 1 in 60 children were diagnosed with autism. For boys, it was 1 in 38. Our children are getting sicker more...

What Is Chronic Fatigue And How Do I Beat It?

What Is Chronic Fatigue And How Do I Beat It?
  The truth is, no really knows, or at least there’s no general consensus on it. There are many theories out there however. Some of them include that it’s caused by some kind of virus.  Other theories say that it due to “burnout,” is caused by unrelenting stress, or is caused by one initial stressful event like divorce or a car accident that fundamentally alters the way the body functions afterward. It’s tough, unfortunately for those of us suffering from this illness, since fatigue itself is a marker of most disease states, and therefore it’s hard to pinpoint what this is exactly. Chronic fatigue is feeling that you have no energy, absolutely zero energy – like you are at zero point energy — and even below that if it’s possible. It feels like the main switch in your body that gives you energy has been turn off – or shorted...

Our man Andy looking strong so far. Had a cool day today, mainly due to popping to the Norfolk/Suffolk border and having a browse round a local farmers market. I decided to pick up some raw dairy while I was there and also had a quick chat with a lady who recovered from Crohn’s disease in the past. I wouldn’t say I learned anything new, as she pretty much touted the ‘heal the gut and the rest will come’ type philosophy, as well as mentioning the importance of probiotics etc. Throw liver issues in the mixer and unfortunately good advice gets a little tricky. However she was really nice, and gave me a good run down on the...

Seeking out the big guns

Seeking out the big guns
http://thehealthvoyage.com/ Man-o-man my days have become about survival at the moment. A quick glance in the mirror in the morning prior to hopping in the shower reveals some nice racoon style dark circles under my eyes. After reading his excellent book ‘The Fourfold Path to Healing’ I have decided to approach Dr Cowan. With his wide range of knowledge I’m hoping his expertise might be able to help me understand what’s going on with my rather annoying body. I opted for the ‘community support’ option as I have a habit of being a little jumpy when it comes to treatments, so I’m hoping this will put me on the straight and narrow with ongoing support and discussion. Unloading my symptom set and sharing my dietary woes will be fun for him! Although perhaps to keep the consultation fee a little cheaper I could perhaps try a quick summary along the...

Help! Parents of children with autism wanted for study on feeding issues and diet.

Greetings to all and a Happy New Year. ESPA Research has been contacted by a Dietitian based in the UK with an interest in autism and diet. She is looking for parents / primary caregivers of children diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition to take part in an on-line survey looking at various facets of feeding and diet. Children should be aged between 3-16 years and resident in the UK. A link to the survey is provided here hosted by the National Autistic Society (NAS) Research Projects section. As many parents and professionals will know, feeding and dietary issues are often an area of significant concern for many children on the autism spectrum. There is a growing recognition that more research and resources are required to catalogue such issues in terms of prevalence and specific types of problems present in autism; and where possible, ensure that appropriate nutritional intake is maintained (particularly for those following...

A year in review

http://thehealthvoyage.com/ Well, what a year, and one which I can probably say has ended slightly on the positive side. I wouldn’t say that I’ve picked up a huge amount of forward momentum, but more stopped the rot and stabilised. Also coming across GAPs towards the latter part of the year has filled me with a deep confidence that recovery is possible, despite how complicated it seems at the moment. Despite knowing allot about my health and what I thought I needed to do to try and get better, this year did see some moments that further plunged me into illness and toxicity. If I remember correctly there were at least 3 occasions where I binged on food. These weren’t your average binges either, they were huge, jolting my body from a generally low carb diet to massive amounts of sweets, breads, junk food, drinks etc for days at a time....

New article added on the possible reasons why a GFCF diet might work for autism

A quick update: ESPA Research announces the publication of a new article in the peer-reviewed journal Autism Insights titled: How could a gluten- and casein-free diet ameliorate symptoms associated with autism spectrum conditions? The article is open-access and free to download for non-commercial purposes via the ESPA Research or publishers website (Libertas Academica). www.espa-research.org.uk Building on the various pieces of research attempting to determine how such dietary intervention may work in some cases of autism spectrum conditions, the authors detail the various evidence for a direct or co-morbid link between autism and (i) gluten sensitive enteropathy or coeliac disease, (ii) allergy and atopic disease, and (iii) hyperpermeability of the gastrointestinal membrane (leaky gut) and passage of biologically active material to the central nervous system. Many thanks All at ESPA Research

Today I feel wonderful!

Long time no input, but things are going great! I have recently (in the last three months) made a fantastic discovery and I feel wonderful! In my opinion diet is one of the answers to our modern day illnesses. I discovered that people with Hypothyroid can also have gluten or lactose intolerance. I have been following the Paleo(caveman) diet, the weight as just fallen off!  I also have a lot more energy and I am back into my pre illness clothes. It makes so much sense. The Paleo diet consists of eating meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, plants, nuts and seeds, but nothing that is processed, foods without modern food techniques, chemicals and preservatives. 'Simples!' It is based on the foods available to our hunter gatherer ancestors, foods found in nature.   It really does work and it's so easy to follow, you have nothing to loose, but the weight in pounds and...

Do You Know How Toxic Your Life Is?
Intentionality in changing our buying and cleaning habits is vital for protecting our well-being. In order to be stronger and live longer, we must choose to create a healing habitat that effectively eliminates toxins in our bodies and reduces the source of toxins in our environment so that restoration of optimum health can occur.   These check-points will alert you to some of the ways to improve your health through behavioral changes:   1. Check in your sink and under it   Dishwashing liquid residue is left on dishes and eaten, use a non-toxic alternative such as Seventh Generation Free & Clear Laundry Liquid Clean your sponge; studies have shown that the degree of contamination of sponges of a hundred million to one billion microorganisms of any kind per sponge.

What is wrong with me?

This my first attempt at blogging, really.  I'm very confused with my symtoms and what I experience.  I just read an article on MCS and found it very encouraging.  I found that other people have the same symtoms as I do.  I really was at a loss, I thought I had an alergy but when I described my symtoms to a Alergy Physician at the Mayo Clinic, this was 2 or 3 years ago, he just said this is the world and you have to live in it, end of conversation.  I asked if he could refer me to someone that was familiar with my symtoms but he just dismissed me.  I really felt pretty bad.  I've given up talking to doctor's about what I'm experiencing.  I go through periods of sensitivty to certain smells and I don't always know what is happening.  I'm more aware of things like perfume...

Marriage after MCS

So where do I start here...I have 2 kids..12 and 2..I met Jon my husband in 2006 and we hit it off.  We had a lot in common..we listened to the same music, love to drink alcohol!! Camping, concerts..everything it seems. We fell in love at the start.  We were married in 2007 and had a child together in 2008. Right after my 2nd child I started to notice smoke and fragrance bothering me and slowly it came to me being homebound now. Our marriage was great great great to now I can't stand being in the same room as him! I am worried he will bring smells home from work or who he has been around.  MCS has taken its toll on us both which I acknowledge is my fault to begin with because if I didn't have this then we might be fine again.   I don't know...

Why is Lyme Disease Largely Being Ignored?

Today I was asked the following question via a comment on my Facebook page "In your humble opinion, WHY is media & gov't ignoring the plight of over 2.3+ billion people in their suffering? Is it because of their involvement in bioweaponizing this bacteria on {C}Plum Island or is it deeper than this? This is question many of us are plagued with... God Bless Always. Thank you." Mary B. Dear Mary, I have pondered this same question for the past 12 years that I have been helping people with this illness. While Lyme disease might have been a weaponized bug from Plum Island, it comes down to who is going to treat these chronically ill people in a hospital setting. In a hospital the human conditions are departmentalized into Neurology, Cardiology, Nephrology, Rheumatology, Infectious Disease, and every other '...ology. Most chronic Lyme sufferers have virtually every system being effected to...

Flu Season is coming… - NOT!

Flu Season is coming… - NOT!
  Do We Really Believe Flu-viruses and Bacteria are Stronger in the Winter Time? Every year the pharmaceutical/medical mass media marketing begins in the Fall-season and proceeds through late Spring in fear-mongering everyone into believing they must get flu shots. When considering the fact that historically influenza viruses have killed many people throughout the last hundred years it would seem justified to think we should be thankful for vaccines. The truth is that no virus or bacteria can replicate out of control and cause disease in an optimally healthy person of any age! (See my recommendations at the end of this article on how to reach optimum health) In a dominantly poorly functioning society of people who are loaded with environmental toxins and pesticide/herbicide/fungicide/preservative-laden foods, not to mention the deleterious effects of the average American taking an average of 12 pharmaceutical suppressive/symptom-masking medicines that are weakening the overall integrity and...

Childhood Stress and Lyme Disease

By Dr. David Jernigan of Hansa Center for Optimum Health   Childhood Lyme infections can be somewhat easier to address, due to the pristine nature of most children’s bodies, and if it is caught early. At the same time, Lyme in children can be devastating; depending upon their health heritage and the degree of balanced life and stress in the child’s life prior to becoming sick. These issues will dictate how well a child processes through the illness. In a child’s life, stress comes from all directions. In children, as in adults, prolonged stress predisposes one to illness by changing the cellular chemistry. It must be remembered that every thought, especially those thoughts backed by strong emotions, is every cell’s command to change its chemical production in order to bring that thought/emotion into reality. Strong negative emotions promote alterations in the immune system’s ability to keep bacteria and other microbes...

Can Lyme Disease Be Cured?

The question of whether or not Lyme disease can be cured is a recurring question that is asked every doctor who is faced with a person suffering from the disease. The term “Cure” is almost taboo in the healing arts profession. No doctor that I know of is willing to say they can cure any illness…especially not Lyme disease. Before we just say an absolute “No” that Lyme disease is incurable lets see what the best medical dictionaries define the word “Cure” as meaning. After all, these medical dictionaries are the basis of what even the most agnostic doctors hold up as “truth.” The following are taken from Dorland’s Medical Dictionary and Stedman’s Medical Dictionary. Cure noun. 1. Restoration of health; recovery from disease. 2. A method or course of medical treatment used to restore health. 3. An agent, such as a drug, that restores health; a remedy. 4. Something...

Fuel Oil Disaster in our 150yr old Home

Hello Everyone, I'm Sandi.  I'm online looking for advice, information, and support for what is currently going on in my life.  I'm also willing to return the above if I can to anyone in need. Almost 3 weeks ago now, a fuel oil company pumped 250+ gallons of fuel oil into my 150+ yr old family homestead basement.  We neither ordered it or were even their customers.  It was to go across the street to our uncle's house.  Needless to say we are still dealing with the cleanup and all of its after effects. My main concerns are for the air quality, water as we have well water and my children's health.  They both has asthma and one has constant breathing issues from asthma to allergies.  My husband stayed in the house the 2nd and 3rd night and was very sick the next day.  He was in denial as to how...

In Sickness and in Health: …Married to Your Doctor!

By Dr. David Jernigan of the Hansa Center for Optimum Health   Plum blossoms covered the trees on the hillside overlooking the house and garden. A warm breeze sent thousands of petals swirling up into the blue sky like a synchronized flight of white butterflies. As the breeze abandoned them aloft the flight broke apart into graceful catchers of sunlight as they drifted down eventually settling in a delicately scented caress on her body as Su Lin lay on her pallet in the garden as part of her prescribed treatment. The physician leaned over her administering his potent tea of carefully selected herbs. He would not be paid on this visit. The year is 821 B.C. and during the Zhou Dynasty of China the physician only gets paid if you stay healthy. It had been ten years since Su Lin experienced any symptom at all. She was just ten when...

Lyme Disease: Why Don’t I Feel Better?

The question that dominates most Lyme Disease Forums is why don’t I feel better, even after doing everything I can think of to get well. The dominant protocols are conventional medicine’s Long-term antibiotics, and natural medicine protocols; such as the Zhang Protocol, The Cowden Protocol, The Klinghardt Protocol, and The Jernigan Perfect-7 Protocol. The reality is that no canned protocol, natural or conventional, can do everything and cover every potential health issue. Most if not all of the natural protocols are designed to address the most common issues that lead to illness in Lyme disease. None of the protocols can address every issue, since not every issue needing to be corrected can be fixed with a pill or nutritional supplement. For example, if you dislocate your finger there isn’t a pill in the world that can correct that finger. You must find a doctor with the knowledge necessary to correctly...

Realities of Antibiotics for Lyme Disease

 Article by Dr. David Jernigan It may seem that I am 'anti-antibiotic treatment'; however, the reality is that there is a time and a place in which antibiotics can be beneficial for some people. Antibiotics are definitely not a solution I recommend if at all possible to avoid, due to the many, very real, direct, and unavoidable adverse effects on the integrity of the body, not to mention the potential for side effects and allergic reactions. I am amazed at how many people already know they are allergic to at least one class of antibiotic. The problem I have seen repeatedly is that a worsening of symptoms is expected by many doctors as an indication to them that the medicine is working -- the proverbial 'Herx' reaction. But how does one know when it is a true adverse reaction to the drug? Many, if not most, people we have tested...

Initial Blog - Allergies

I am hoping to get some feedback that will help me.  I do have 5 dogs that are house dogs.  They are all rescue dogs and I live in a very hot climate.  I can't put my dogs outside when the temp. is in the 90's or 100's.   I have been reading about the allergy problems that can come from dogs being in the house.  I have also found some very good information for dealing with it, such as --  no carpet no cloth curtains use a dehumidifier use a hepa air filtration system With this in mind, I think I will go ahead and pull up the old carpet in the bedrooms.  I have already eliminated the carpet in most of the house replacing it with wood or tile. You would never believe what is under that carpet when you pull it up.  Might as well be living in a...

American Biological Medicine™ - A New Healthcare Solution

By Dr. David Jernigan of Hansa Center for Optimum Health   American Biological Medicine is based upon a relatively new philosophy within what is generically termed Alternative Medicine. This new philosophy is called Biological Medicine. Biological Medicine recognizes that all aspects of the body, mind, and spirit must be addressed and brought into optimal integrity before lasting health can be achieved. Unlike other body/mind/spirit philosophies of the healing arts, American Biological Medicine is unique in that it is able to utilize the highly scientific, adjunctive diagnostic and treatment technique, Bio-Resonance Scanning™ (BRS), as well as conventional tests and the ancient healing arts of observation and intuition, to rapidly and accurately determine where interferences exist within the body, mind, or spirit. BRS helps to greatly diminish the educated “guesswork” of doctoring. BRS can be used to flow dynamically, in real-time, from interference-diagnostics to treatment selection and its correct application. The reason...

Medicine-Induced Illness

One of my “All-time” favorite newspaper cartoons pictured a doctor handing a patient a bottle of pills. The caption read, “Take one of these…and if you wake up in the morning, take another!” All humor aside, I want to pass on a medical truth that very few doctors even realize. Every medicine’s primary side-effect is also its primary action! The primary side-effect of an antidepressant is depression and suicidal tendencies. Your insomnia medicine’s primary side-effect is sleeplessness. The same is true for many natural medicines, which is a shocker to many people! The truth is that even if a medicine is perfect for “curing” what is wrong with you, as it is fixing things in the body eventually you reach the point where the correction is complete and you should discontinue the medicine. If you continue the remedy beyond the point of completion you literally go through the correction and...

The Spirit of the Virus

Black death, Plague, Pandemic, Ring around the rosy, 150 million dead, millions more maimed and dying… In the dark ages the Spirit of the Virus was all that existed - a death wind that blew no good. There was no such thing as science; no microscope to give the virus the crystalline form we know today. However, the Spirit of the Virus lives on today and is breathed to life in its gullible victims. It is known by many names, Swine Flu, Avian Flu, H1N1, SARS, Ebola… The masses slurp in every whisper of news about the impending virus and with crazed minds suspecting every tickle in their throat, every cough of their neighbor. Like the shadows of a setting sun the Spirit of the Virus moves across the landscape enveloping all in its path who beckoned it with their fear. The Spirit of the Virus is fueled by fear....

An Open Letter from Dr. Doris Rapp Regarding Environmental Exposures in Schools

Dr. Doris Rapp, MD

Permission further granted for recipients to foward.]     August 18, 2010   Dear Friends, I wonder if you would be willing to help me. Together we might be able to help tens of thousands of children. Alone I seem to do able to do very little. We Need To Get The Following Information To Our Schools:   Dear ------,   Dust, mold, pollen, foods and chemicals certainly can cause much more than cause asthma and hay fever. As you all know allergies can take on many forms and often affects how children feel, act, behave, walk, talk, write, draw, and especially learn. Many different areas of the brain can be affected. There is no doubt that it is possible to raise academic performance and attendance, while lowering infection, allergies, hyperactivity, behavior...

9 Steps to Eating on Purpose

9 Steps to Eating on Purpose
How many times do you just wolf-down your meal in a mad rush to finish before getting back to work? How many times are you eating out of obligation to just eat? How many times do you see undigested food in your stool? Gross, I know! Do you have food allergies? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questons it is likely you need to retrain yourself in how to eat on purpose. Maintain regular and consistent mealtimes. It is better to eat five smaller meals than three large meals. Before eating relax momentarily for 10 seconds, then begin eating. (Blessing your food in prayer – science has shown that this cleans the food, makes it more bio-available, more digestible, and consequently tastes better) Smell each item on your plate before you take your first bite, like sniffing your wine before drinking, which will awaken the taste centers in...

Heavy Metal Toxins

We must change our body’s internal environment, so that it’s not the perfect home for microbes. Heavy metals are hugely responsible for weakening our immune system and setting us up for chronic and repeated infections. A significant portion of my book, Beating Lyme Disease: Living the Good Life in Spite of Lyme, discusses the methods and means to extensive detoxification protocols. What are Heavy Metals? The term ‘heavy metals’ refers to the over-accumulation of many different types of metals in the fat cells, central nervous system (brain, brainstem, spinal cord), bones, glands or hair. Heavy metals may include mercury, iron, lead cadmium, palladium, platinum, arsenic and nickel, to name a few. Common Sources of Heavy Metals 1.  Dental amalgam fillings 2. Cosmetics and antiperspirants with an aluminum base, and mineral powders containing bismuth. 3.  Vaccinations containing mercury or aluminum that are injected into your bloodstream. 4.  Use of conventional household...

It's Not In Your Genes; It's In Your Jeans

Did you ever wonder why you act the way you do, or why you suffer with certain types of illnesses? How you act and the physical symptoms you suffer from may have more to do with your ancestors than with your lifestyle. The theory of epigenetic miasms may explain some of what makes you uniquely prone to the types of problems you experience . This is not “new age” and is not genetic aberrations, but it is more of an epigenetic phenomenon. An Epigenetic miasm, by definition, is a predisposition, or tendency, of certain psychological and physical problems that are set in motion by illnesses in your family history going back seven generations, or acquired within your own lifetime. Epigenetic miasms are due to changes in the expression in genes that are not due to underlying changes in the actual DNA sequences. Epigenetic miasms are not to be confused with...

PESTICIDE POISONING IN PUBLIC HOUSING: SYDNEY

Greetings.  My name is Murray Thompson.  My son and I are victims of callous pesticide poisoning.  We have both been acutely and long-term exposed to termite pesticide solvent vapours in our public housing residence in North-West Sydney.  Although I had explicitly warned the Department of Housing (DOH) about my asthmatic chemical sensitivity on multiple occasions, two pesticide treatments were forced upon me resulting in a kaleidoscope of unusual symptoms.  Essentially, I have MCS, depression and a host of physical ailments.  My now 18 year old son is 115kg of pure rage and paranoia, although very controlled (substitute: repressed) and this to his considerable credit. My legal case against the New South Wales Department of Housing will go to trial soon in November 2010 at the New South Wales Supreme Court in Sydney (the file number of my case is 2003/00091442 and the hearing is listed for 15/11/10 in the Supreme...

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Low Body Temperature

In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there are many theories as to the cause. Some say it is the effects of heavy metal and chemical toxicity. Some say it is chronic infections, while others say it is the side-effects from vaccines and the use of suppressive medicines such as acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen, still others say it is dysregulated hormones or the effects of emotional trauma. It this author’s opinion everyone is correct in the same way as the proverbial three blind men describing an elephant from the head, tail, and the side are correct in each one’s description but only from his unique vantage point. However, in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there is one common overriding finding…low body temperature! This article deals primarily with the very predictable problems seen in low body temperature and the profound importance of restoring and maintaining normal core body temperature.

Why Detoxifying The Body of Lyme Toxins May Not Be Enough!

Research indicates that the majority of symptoms in Lyme disease are caused by the release of toxins by the spirochetes. If that were not bad enough, for most people in the United States, the daily accumulation of toxins just from living, eating, and breathing is staggering! Environmental toxins from our air, water, personal care products, medications, and food supply are jamming up the machinery of the cells, interfering with the regulation of the body. Toxins are a global problem. There is virtually no one on the planet who does not need to detoxify the body on a continual basis. Every person on the planet should be working to eliminate the sources of toxins in our house and life. Detoxification of the body must be a part of any effective Lyme protocol or one risks permanent damage to nerve and joint tissue from the toxic irritation. Today more than 77,000 chemicals...

Climate, Weather and Environmental Illness

More from when I was working I find it hard to find and employer who understands what I have and the people I work with. They think if its in a another room it will stay in there don't think so smells travel you can not say stay to it like a dog lol. But that is what I have had to deal with working. Doctors can be as bad finding one which understands that I can not use many items is hard. Also after waiting ten years I am now been sent to the hositpal...
