The impact of genes and heavy metals + Melissa Oil Benefits

The Impact of Genes and Heavy Metals

Hey Warriors!

It’s yet again another week, and it was definitely a hot one this week, whew.  Speaking of hot, I HIGHLY recommend if you haven’t watched the FULL documentary of Plandemic, do so!  It just released this last week and it is a good one.  You won’t find it on normal media sights, because they ban it everytime! The only way you can watch the full video is through the platform londonreal that releases all information without censoring. If you haven’t heard of it, it is the most revelatory film on what is driving the vaccine agenda, the various roles of the WHO, Bill Gates, Tedros Adhanom, Anthony Fauci and more.
Going deep into what is really happening with mainstream media, Silicon Valley tech giants, big pharma and our health protection agencies.
This film will fundamentally shift the discourse around Coronavirus, the lockdown and the vested interests involved.

I honestly find if hard to talk about health topics, when so much is going on around us, but there is a lot of good happening too.  So be encouraged.  A lot is getting blasted open, people are healing and getting restored.  Remember to keep joy in your life at all costs.  Take breaks from information like this and enjoy the ones around you. Get outside, smile and be around people.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Okay, on to this week’s topic :  Genetics and Heavy Metals. 

Last time we talked about Leaky Brain, which was a pretty big hit!  A lot of people had no idea about this concept or what causes it.  Cause #2 for leaky brain is TOXINS.. As as we know toxins are quite literally everywhere.  Food, Air, Water, Dental Materials, Cleaning/beauty products, EMF’s, and injections to name a few!

Part of that list includes heavy metals.  Although, slight amounts of some heavy metals, such as iron,, zinc  and copper, are essential for enzymatic activities in our body, other metals like lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury, are toxic for humans. Here is a list of where they are found and what they do.  This isn’t an all extensive list, but is a good start. 

Since we are exposed to these metals on a pretty regular basis, how are body responds to them depend on different internal and external environments. 
It also of course depends on the amount of the exposure and how the exposure was administered.  For instance, in a vaccination, the heavy metals are injected and bypass our internal detoxification organs(because we aren’t ingesting them) for breakdown, so this is a much higher and detrimental amount. 

We know now some of the serious side effects of heavy metal toxicity such as :  Loss of bones, kidney destruction, vascular disorders, developmental dysfunction and cancer are some of the well-known health problems triggered by heavy metals.  

Genetics and genetic variations are considered an internal contributing factor, and as the world of genetics is ever expanding, they are considered as novel and important contributors in heavy metal body retention and metabolism.  
I very often see heavy metals affecting a person’s mood (depression or anxiety), gut dysfunction, headaches, increasing infection load like candida and neurological dysfunction.  Another common finding is skin rashes and irritations. 

There are certain genetic variants such as MTHFR, PON1, DMT1, GSH which are proteins that are either directly or indirectly involved in how we process and break down heavy metals.  This shows that heavy metal metabolism plays a huge role in a person’s sensitivity and severity of health effects.
This is HUGE news!

This is part why I got so interested in looking into genetics and why certain people handle substances well and others not.  Or why one patient got well with something and the next didn’t.  Genetics are like our own blueprint, and can give us so much insight into how to know how each of our bodies uniquely work!  The more you know about it, the more you can help your body by enhancing it.  It might I add also save a TON of $ knowing what is optimal for you and what isn’t….

 So again… Just to recap, certain variations in genes make it hard for that person to detoxify against heavy metals.  That means that all those “heavy metal” detoxes and protocols out there, could possibly be doing someone major harm for certain individuals if they can’t metabolize it!  

The purpose of most heavy metal detox programs is to utilize something to attract the metal to it.  The most utilized one now is called zeolites, which are made from volcanic ash.  Before diving into genetics I used to use these remedies all the time. As the metals attach to it, your body is then supposed to eliminate it.  However, many had very severe symptoms like fatigue and headaches even though zeolites are typically very safe.  My instincts are that certain individuals because of these genes have a VERY hard time eliminating them.  

Keep in mind, actual increased exposure to these metals can also shut down certain genetic enzymes as well, so we must get them out, but we must get them out safely. 

Let’s talk for a minute about what each of these Genes Do. 

1. Metallothionein 2 A (MT2 A).This gene is a cysteine rich protein located in cytoplasm of cells.  These proteins are involved in body responses to both xenobiotic heavy metals, such as mercury, cadmium, arsenic. MTs are able to bind to heavy metals via their thiol groups and provide a protection against these materials in the body. 

2. Metallothionein 1 A (MT1 A). While the expression of MT2 A is induced by the presence of several metals, such as copper, zinc and cadmium, the expression of MT1 A was shown to be merely cadmium.  So this one is particularly important when those with high levels of this metal show up!

3. Divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1). DMT1 transports not only iron, but also other metals like cadmium and lead. Other investigations also demonstrated an association between iron levels and the expression rate of DMT1 in the intestine. Accordingly, lower body iron levels can lead to higher rate of DMT1 expression and increasing the uptake and recovery of iron. However, over expression of this transporter can cause duodenal absorption of other biochemically similar metals, such as cadmium and lead.

4 .Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).  A LOT of people have heard of this gene by now.  It does a LOT of things including: being a crucial enzyme in amino acid metabolism, is responsible for catalyzing the conversion of 5,10- methylene tetra hydro folate to 5- methylene tetra hydro folate, which is a co-substrate for re-methylation of homocysteine to methionine. Deficiency of MTHFR can cause homocysteinemia and some disruptions in metabolism of folate.
Genetic variations in MTHFR gene were shown to be associated with different conditions, such as depression, schizophrenia, inflammatory bowel diseases, and hyperhomocysteinemia.  TT homozygotes were suggested to be more sensitive to heavy metals and other environmental toxins.

5.Paraoxanase 1 (PON1). Paraoxonase 1 (PON1), (also known as A esterase), is a liver secreted glycoprotein, is responsible for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant defenses after its association with high-density lipoproteins (HDL) in bloodstream. So far, associations between PON1 genetic variations and different conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, depressive and bipolar disorders, gestational diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance, have been shown by different research. 

6.Glutathione (GSH) related genes. Have you heard of glutathione before?  We naturally make it. Ligandins or glutathione s-transferases (GSTs), are a group of enzymes able to conjugate the reduced form of glutathione (GSH) to xenobiotic substrates. This process finally leads to water solubility of these substrates and their easy detoxification.
Individuals with these genetic variants do really well with adding in glutathione to chelate heavy metals, since they don’t produce glutathione as well.  

Sorry for the chemistry lesson there, but it’s sometimes interesting to know what these genes are actually doing.

Having this information is extremely helpful in knowing that individuals limitations.  We can then give specific nutrients and recommendations to help safely and easily detoxify heavy metals if they are present.  Again, we don’t want to just go and do heavy metal clearings on everyone. It’s not safe, and can cause some real mitochondrial damage. If you have those silver amalgum fillings, we must get those out before doing a bunch of heavy metal clearing.  Going with a safe biological dentist is key for safety here. 

Heavy Metals and Sensitivity…
When you have heavy metal toxicity you can become very sensitive to many things.  One is EMF’s or electromagnetic frequencies.  This is because heavy metals act like an antennae for these frequencies pulling them into the skin and tissue through the sweat glands.  
If you’ve been with me for a little while you KNOW, that EMF’s are bad news.  A huge portion of coronavirus is the increased radiation of 5G causing toxic load. 

So, if you know that you have amalgam fillings for instance, or lots of heavy metal toxicity from vaccinations or other means, then it is WISE to keep your distance from Wifi, bluetooth and other forms of EMF’s.  

For more information about your genes, make sure you schedule a genetic nutrition session and we’ll go over the ones for you that are at play.

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Melissa OIL.  This is the QUEEN of all oils….Lemon balm – also called melissa essential oil, short for its Latin name Melissa officinalis – is distilled from the leaves, which are quite easy to grow and replenish. Lemon balm comes from the same family as peppermint, which is typically known for being prolific and even invasive.

In spite of easy-growing techniques, the leaves themselves yield very little essential oil. So it isn’t a question of how quickly the plant produces but how much it must produce in order to yield a true, pure essential oil.

CANCER PREVENTION POTENTIAL OF MELISSA
Within my protocols and recommendations, lemon balm stands out as absolutely valuable due to its cancer prevention potential. As researchers uncover more and more about the mysteries of cancer and the potential that God-given substances have to erase it, I grow more excited about our work with essential oils.

Lemon balm (melissa essential oil), for example, went through an extensive study in 2014, testing its ability to mitigate brain cancer cells. The results taught scientists much about the way the composition of lemon balm interacts with brain cancer cells. In the end, they found that a major part of lemon balm – citral – had numerous effects on the process and behavior of brain cancer and “may be of potential interest for the treatment” of this particular kind of cancer. (1)

4 MORE BENEFITS OF MELISSA ESSENTIAL OIL
Until we know just how to maximize lemon balm (melissa essential oil) as a cancer prevention and even treatment, lemon balm can benefit our lives in many ways, from daily comforts to long-term effects.

1.  ANTI-DIABETIC ACTIONS
Diabetes affects more and more people every day, from type 1 lack of insulin production to type 2 lack of insulin sensitivity. For type 2 diabetes, diet and lifestyle changes are a huge component of treatment.

Where diet and lifestyle are indicated, you are likely to find an essential oil to help as well. Such is the case with lemon balm, which has been tested as an anti-diabetic essential oil. Mouse studies suggest that even small amounts of lemon balm essential oil can help to curb type 2 diabetes. (2)

It’s important to know your diabetes diagnosis well before looking toward additional nutritive treatment like essential oils. Once you understand what your body needs, you can look to oils like lemon balm to assist treatment.

Application: Use lemon balm essential oil as part of your shift toward healthy mind and body lifestyle decisions to combat diabetes. See some of our other favorite essential oils for diabetes here.

2. HEALING COLD SORES
Not only are cold sores uncomfortable and unsightly, they are a virus that can be transmitted. In fact, cold sores fall under the umbrella of herpes – the herpes simplex virus. So if you are struggling against cold sores, it’s not just a soothing reprieve you need. You need an antiviral!

Many essential oils are antivirals and could be used against cold sores. Lemon balm, though, appears to be directly effective against the herpes simplex virus. (3) As part of a soothing lip balm, you can address both the need to sooth painful sores and attack the virus at its root.

Application: Include a few drops of lemon balm in a melted mixture of a bit of coconut oil and beeswax. Pour into a small tin and let set up. Remember not to share this lip balm – it’s a source of healing and you don’t want to share your cold sore, as well!

3. COGNITIVE CALM & RELAXATION
Lemon balm is traditionally used for its calming effects. Essential oils are perfectly suited for this purpose, with easy application (just breathe deep!) and relaxation promotion. Lemon balm may do much more than just relax you, though.

For example, one study published in 2012 demonstrated the ability that lemon balm has to directly affect the brain and neurotransmitters. The specific action studied actually has implications for improving cognitive function and even reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. (4)

Such direct effects on the brain show us how deeply essential oils work in our bodies. Simply inhaling an oil like lemon balm is not just relaxing us because we like the scent, but it’s actually helping to change things deep within ourselves!

Application: Use a drop or two of lemon balm in calming and cognitive-enhancing blends. Diffuse for room-wide calming benefits or inhale directly for more targeted and specific results.

4. BUG REPELLENT
You’ve probably noticed by this point that bug repellent effects are a repeated benefit of many essential oils. It’s not universal for all essential oils, but many have shared components that are effective against mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests. With Lyme disease on the rise, this is more important than ever. For lemon balm, the shared component is citronellol and citral, shared with the popular bug repelling oil citronella.

Sometimes, these natural components are much more effective than synthetic alternatives. As one study noted of essential oils, “these natural products have the potential to provide efficient, and safer repellents for humans and the environment.”

That is all for now.
Have a happy and healthy week.

Leaky Brain. It’s a thing…

Leaky Brain.. It’s a THING!

Hey Warriors.
Happy Monday!  I hope you enjoyed last blogs topic all about fasting.  It’s such a great simple tool to help your body heal and reset.

This week we are going over Leaky Brain!

So let’s dive in.

First off,
What is leaky Brain?

I’m sure by now, a lot of you know or have heard of Leaky Gut, in which there’s a protective barrier between the gut and the blood. It’s the same thing with the brain, it’s got a protective barrier protecting it from the surroundings and it’s really an even tighter pack then what the barrier from the gut to the blood is because we want to keep bad stuff out of the brain like toxins, infections and harmful immune cells and keep good stuff going into the brain like glucose, ketones and fat soluble nutrients. Leaky brain in essence is a breakdown or a breach of the blood brain barrier.

Our bodies and our brains are constantly being bombarded with these toxins, environmental or bio toxins or even thought toxins that it breaks down the barrier and now it’s easier for these substances to get in. They get in there and they stay in, and sometimes it’s hard to get rid of them.
Think about it this way.  Think of a shoe when you tie up the laces it should be nice and tight. The only things that can get in are maybe water.  The more that the laces loosen, the more pebbles and stones and sand can get in and now the pebble in your shoe doesn’t feel very good, and creates inflammation.
Normally the brain can repair itself but because of this breakdown of the blood brain barrier this leaky brain, now things are constantly getting in causing more brain inflammation and not allowing your brain to actually heal.

How common is leaky brain? And maybe someone with a chronic illness? 

90% of the chronic disorders, degeneration diseases including chronic illness is lifestyle related. Our lifestyle leads to the leaky brain, but we have to take a step back and address the whole body not just the brain but the gut ,the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system because that all leads up to the brain and gives nutrition to the brain. It’s a relatively new phenomenon or concept just like leaky gut was 10 or 15 years ago but it is very common.

If you have leaky gut does that mean you have leaky brain??

It might take a little bit longer to get the leaky brain than the leaky gut because it doesn’t actually start in the gut. If you allow the toxins whether it’s biotoxin infections, parasites, bacteria or mold into your system into the blood it makes its way up into the brain and starts attacking that barrier and getting through. The majority 85-90% again I’m turning out these numbers just because if chronic illness or degeneration including Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, MS key neurodegenerative diseases are preventable which I believe they are and are due to more lifestyle,  I would say 85-90% if you have leaky gut you’re going to have leaky brain.

What are some common Symptoms that someone would know that they have leaky brain?

Memory, brain fog or emotional side effects like anxiety, depression are warning signs if you are talking about just brain issues or brain symptoms. Systemic issues you could get allergies .it could be headaches and migraines, I know that’s what I suffered from with leaky brain. You could be constipated you could have bladder infections all signs of poor gut health leading to poor immune system health. Sometimes the brain fog or anxiety might not be the first symptom it might say you know that’s been there for awhile who knows months years decades, you better address that now or else it’s going to progress even into these things where it’s even more degeneration where your body is trying to protect itself from this inflammation  like dementia, Alzheimer’s, cancer..

Is there actual tears in the barrier, or just more permeability?

It’s both but I would say it’s more of the middle one where it’s at increased permeability with toxins and infections like parasites can break it down to where tears happen.

What causes it?

There are three things that cause this to happen.

1. Deficiencies in Oxygen.  This can be deficiencies in micronutrients because of toxin load, but in this point specifically I mean due to head trauma or posture issues.
Think about all the the stresses we put on our spine by sitting too much, by using our cell phones or smartphones or computers getting in a slumped posture, injuries that we’ve had, it leads to deficiencies in the nervous system flow with the brain getting that information down to the cells of the body.  The cells relaying that information back up so that in and of itself causes leaky brain. It causes a breach of the blood brain barrier not able to utilize the nutrients because the spine is in such horrible shape in that position they are not getting oxygen. If you slumped down in your chair as you’re reading this and try to take a deep breath in and then maybe you sit up straight or straighter and you take a deep breath, you’re going to notice how much easier it is to take that breath in getting more oxygen sitting up.  Research also shows the forward head position causes a change in the neck curve, which causes de-myelination of the neuronal sheath (another word is MS). Brain injuries definitely cause depletion of oxygen to your brain, which means not giving the brain the environment to heal.

2. Toxicities and deficiencies. 
Biotoxins, mold, viruses, parasites, bacteria. When people hear bacteria they might think well I don’t have the flu, I’m not sick or I don’t feel that way because you think of bacteria as a cold or virus as the flu and that’s not the case.  It could present itself like migraines, low energy, brain fog. That’s more the biotoxins and then we can go into the environmental side of it like the glyphosate, herbicides,  pesticides, heavy metals. The brain LOVES different types of heavy metals like Mercury, lead, tin, aluminum.  They get caught in the brain, and if you think about yourselves like a a bucket and we fill them up with these toxicities, there’s not any room for nutrients and micronutrients like anti-oxidants, enzymes, vitamins or minerals to help make these reactions go to help give you the energy that you need to help you recover from the chronic illness.
That leads to deficiencies.

85,000 chemicals are registered in the US and none of them really have been tested for safety or tested how they interact, I mean the numbers are quite staggering. Radioactive elements I see being a big toxin like EMF’s causing brain issues and leaky brain especially because it breaks down the blood brain barrier. Yes 5G and wifi are huge for leaky brain!  Get away from that technology people!

Even at a young age these toxins are being introduced into our kids’ bodies, through food, air and injections that it’s even more important nowadays to make your body stronger to deal with the toxins and to be able to manage and get rid of them. What happens when we can’t get rid of them leads to more deficiencies in our our nutrients.

Infections like parasites, mold and Lyme Disease are big ones I find in the brain quite commonly.  These eat away at the layer and cause brain permeation.


Did you know last week was a FULL MOON? This is a time that parasites come out! It’s great to do parasite cleanses during the full moon to eliminate them.  A lot of people will say they don’t feel good around the time of the full moon, and if they are filled with parasites, this is when they really activate. Parasites are nocturnal, and have life cycles that go along with the full moon, so they are up reproducing in your bloodstream at night.  This means more anxiety, depression or insomnia. You of course want to make sure you are on my genetic protocol to make sure your drainage pathways are open before eliminating parasites, but you will want to do a parasite cleanse if this is your case. I love using my craniobiotic technique to kill parasites, but this mix is good to have on hand for each full moon if you aren’t near me!!  Use the code here  to order the full moon kit:  cellcorebiosciences.com/products/full-moon-kit

USE CODE: DRL06CZE

REMEMBER, the brain is made of 75% water.  In order to properly flush those toxins out, you need to be hydrated and get hydration into the cell! that’s where our kangan water comes in!

3. Mindset.  There is so much research on mindset.  I don’t like categorizing one is more important than the other, but we can’t ever out eat or out nutritional a bad mindset because we’re always going to revert back to our baseline. We might have the best strategy, we might have the best nutrition and detox program but unless our mind is ready for it and I don’t mean: “alright believe to achieve” or say these affirmations, if we don’t believe in our subconscious are unconscious, and if we’re constantly saying things consciously those affirmations that our unconscious doesn’t believe it’s it’s never gonna breakthrough. It might have short-term success but it’s all about reprogramming that fixed mindset into a growth mindset.

Mindset is the foundation with which we build our nutrition, we build our fitness, we build our sleeping we build everything because what that is whatever we focus on. Whatever mindset goes to whatever our subconscious believes to be true.

This is a toxic mindset:  things are never going to get better, I’m never gonna get over this, I’m always gonna end up in this position, I’m never going to have the life that I want. It’s a lot of never and always.  If you want to think about  the non serving thoughts and we want to be happy with who we are but if these thoughts are leading us towards non serving behaviors and actions and habits than that is what is limiting us in getting better.
If you’re  struggling with chronic illness with Lyme disease for instance, if we automatically think, I’ve tried everything and then you quit, you just haven’t found the right thing yet and it’s a process that we go through it’s not just a simple thing of OK I’m going to think positive today and then tomorrow everything is going to be better. 5 minutes a day count your wins.
If you don’t have the energy and you don’t feel like walking, go outside and walk into your driveway and back.  That is a win! Keep counting that as a win until the next win.  That retrains your mindset.

How do I fix it?

When we talk about leaky brain, that means decreasing inflammation throughout the body, making sure our cells are working, and all our organs like the kidneys, liver, and bowels.

I always address the cranial system first to make sure oxygen can get into the brain more effectively.  If you can’t get oxygen to the BRAIN, then forget about nutrition.

My #2 is making sure hydration is dealt in.  If we can’t get your cells hydrated, it’s really hard to get nutrients in your cells.  I believe every patient should have Kangan water

#3 Mindset and Emotional Healing.  It’s hard to do much else if your subconscious is blocking healing.  We must deal with some of these roots before progressing.

#3 getting the detoxification and methylation pathways working.  We need to start rebuilding the body by healing and feeding organs and pathways and then cleaning out toxins gradually.  Don’t go and do heavy metal clearing or big infection protocols when you first need to rebuild.

#4 Clear Infections.  Once your methylation is working properly, your organs will be dumping out chemicals, toxins, metals and BUGS.  Sometimes you need a little further help getting these critters out, but most the time the other toxins will release on their own.

#5 Load up with phyto nutrient rich foods, fermented foods and pre and probiotic rich foods.

#6 Get Moving.  Moving increase BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor).  More High intensity interval training increases this the most, but any movement will do.  Just Keep moving!  This moves your lymphatic system which is needed to get rid of inflammation!

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Rose Oil.

Rose oil is one of the highest vibrancy oils that we have.  What do I mean?  Well when we talk about radioactive toxins like EMF’s we need high vibrancy to combat them.  Rose oil is great to add into your routine to help fight free radical damage from EMF’s.

It’s also a warm and loving oil.  This oil has turned to one of my favorites because of its such rich and vibrant smell.  It’s also wonderful for the skin with antiaging properties.

Make sure this is in your home!

That’s all for now.
Have a happy and healthy week.

Effective Cellular Hydration.. AlkaLIZED not AlkaLINE.

Hey Warriors.
Happy Monday! Another couple weeks has gone by, which means it’s time for our bimonthly Blog. So much has been happening in our world the past four months, which I truly believe it to be an awakening of deep corruption that has been going on for some time.  I think next month I’m going to chat about some emotional components of these surprise seasons because after all emotions are 1/3 of our health.

—————-
This week we are talking all about hydration.  Not only hydration but cellular hydration.  A big difference there. There are many facets to health and longevity and if you’ve been here for awhile you know that I talk about many of those in different ways.  Brain healing, food quality, electricity, emotions….. Well today we are digging into hydration.
So let’s dive in..

Did you now that 71% of the earth is water, and our bodies are made of 75% water, 75% is inside our cells. 
However, not all water is created equal.  We need water that actually goes into the cells of our body. Tap water is full of contaminants and other chemicals harmful to our body.  Bottle water sometimes may seem like the better option, but the production process is highly unregulated and contains harmful chemicals and hormone disruptors leached from the plastic containers.  It’s also acidic which affects your bodies pH and electrolyte balance. Not to mention plastic destroys our ecosystem.

Well water for those that have it, is a great option. Why? Because the earth breaks the water into smaller particle size units called the ORP(oxidative reductive potential). That ORP being small (or negative) is key.

If you take a handful of grapes, put in them in a colander and rinse them off with water, does the water go into the grapes?
No.  Why?
Because the skin of the grape bounces the water off.  So, guess what happens to most of the water that you drink, the same thing happens in your cells.  Your cells have a skin on the outside that repels most water, meaning  most of the water we drink is peed out.  That’s why a urinalysis is not always very effective at diagnosing, because most of the water you are peeing is the same water you drank 20 minutes ago, it’s not exchanging inside the cells. That exchanging process is HUGE for healing. So what’s inside your cells becomes old, stale, stagnant and mold ridden.  We start to rot and rust on the inside out even though we are drinking 6 gallons of water per day.  If the water you are drinking is not small enough in ORP, the old water is not coming out of your cells and the new water is not coming in. This can really hinder our cellular regeneration.  It also really hinders our ability with nutrients to get inside the cell for healing.

Nutrition is key right?  But it is getting in your cells?  We don’t want to pee out all that good nutrition we pay lots of $ for!
Additionally, when we talk about cellular regeneration from EMF’s, radiation and free radicals we have to be able to flush them out. Regular water can’t do that.

For all my exercise people out there (which should be all of you:))
Dehydration of just 3% causes: 18% decline in muscular power, 70% increase in “perceived” fatigue, and 12% decrease in reaction time.
I think it’s fair to say if the majority aren’t drinking well water or alkalized water they are dehydrated….

Also,
It’s not about the PH of the water,  you can make PH by adding baking soda to the water.  It doesn’t make the water more permeable.  The term you are looking for is alkalized not alkaline.  Water that is not only high pH, but that is a small enough particle size to actually go into your cells.
We know that more alkaline environments are better overall for health and healing.  Although our stomach and small intestine need acidic environments, the rest of our body does not. Acidic environments feed cancer cells. The accumulation of acidic waste products within our body is the process of aging. Therefore,
removing old, stored waste is reverse aging.

Most alkaline water out there is chemically processed to be alkaline.  It’s not a natural process. All the bottled electrolyte alkaline water on the shelves have been tested.  They aren’t really alkaline, and if they are, it’s a chemical process of doing so by adding bicarbonate.  Being here in California, we also hear about the magical carlsbad water.  People come from all over to get alkaline water for healing.  However, actually testing the water, it’s not that alkaline.  It’s better than other water and bottled water, but there is superior alkalinity.

And what about the brain?  The brain is 73% water.  How do we replenish the cells of the brain with hydration?  Nobody ever thinks of brain dehydration, but it happens.

So, whats the best?  I’ve mentioned well water, and although this is better than most, there is something more superior.
Kangan Water.  

Kangan is a patented water device that not only filtrates your water and gives you different levels of alkalinity so you can use for many different things, but the most important is that particle size!  It’s micro-clustered to get into your cells and hydrate as well as detoxify them. It is water quality association gold seal certified as well.

This amazing device is made in Japan with Japanese technology, and there’s a reason why those in Japan live so long!
It uses electricity to separate the molecules in your water, leaving more anti-oxidizing molecules available to stop oxidation, inflammation and anti-aging.
It connects to your faucet and creates 7 different types of water. First, the water travels through double carbon antibacterial filter, removes contaminants and chlorine.  Next the water passes over 7 electrically charged platinum dipped titanium plates producing kangan and acidic waters.  It’s alkaline and high antioxidant.
Additionally, when you drink reverse osmosis water, it depletes the water of minerals leaving you mineral deficient.  Kangan does not. So you leave in all the good stuff, take out all the bad stuff and create super hydrating antioxidant water.

—-
This is not an infomercial.  I personally have tried so many different waters and just this year paid off a 8,000 water machine that claimed to make antioxidant water.  It didn’t, and grew mold which most water machines do. Kangan is different.  I no longer get that full feeling after drinking water, because before water was just sloshing around, and although taking minerals was still always dehydrated.  Cellular hydration!

There’s so many other uses for this machine as well, as it creates 7 different types of water that you can use to make your own disinfectant, veggies/fruit cleaner (gets out more pesticides that veggies washes), beauty water that’s great for your skin, and increasing pH to detoxify your body.

After paying off the other machine, I was finally able to get mine this week after waiting for so long!  I am beyond excited.  I will be having some jugs in the office but as my office is small I won’t be able to have it in office at this time.  The best way, is to try the water and see how you feel.

For more information about Kangan, Underneath you will find an image with the next informational class. This is not myself, but a colleague who has tested over 80 different water machines and devices. Nothing compares to Kangan.  If you attend you can get two weeks free water to try it out for yourself (if you are local).  This is what I did and said I was never going back!  Mention you heard from Dr. Hamel when you sign up;)  I will be having more information on my website about it very soon!

 

Additionally, here is some research,  but there are SO many studies already been done.

A Genetic Variant Associated with Cancer and the Warburg Effect

A Genetic Variant Associated with Cancer and the Warburg Effect

Hey Warriors.
Happy Fathers Day, (Late) to all you dads reading this!! I hope you truly know how important it is to have fathers in the picture!! I hope you got spoiled and loved yesterday!
First of all I wanted to say thank you for all the replies from last month’s blog about racism and trauma
As we continue on, I hope the conversation continues.

This week we are switching years a little bit from brain talk and talking a little about nutrition.  As many of you know I switched a few years ago to doing solely genetic based nutrition. Why?  Because something was missing in my practice.  Hormone protocols, and detoxification protocols, and gut protocols got some people well but others plateaued, myself included. The world of genetics in itself is fairly new medicine, and we are literally learning more every single week it seems.  I like to look at genetics this way.  We are born with certain genes, but the way those genes actually work or express themselves can be changed. We know they can be changed even through our thoughts and environment.  So one way we look at helping is through nutrition.

The more genetic “variants” we call them there are in a certain pathway, the more that person might have trouble either creating or destroying something.  As the world is not only getting more toxic emotionally, but has been getting physically toxic for years and years, we have to find new ways to help our bodies overcome such constant bombardment, even from the air we breathe.  You’ve heard it before, we live in a toxic soup.  From our air, water, food sources, EMF’s, cleaners to body care.  

This is generally why we are seeing more and more health issues, an overload of toxins, the inability of our bodies to handle it, and inability to create new cells.
What happens when we can’t eliminate and regenerate leads to chronic conditions. 

In the western medical world we are taught to fear the C word.  Even though doctors and researchers have already found cures, and have been using treatments for years saving individuals lives.  I distinctly remember a teacher in my graduate studies who was one of the smartest medical doctors and microbiologist I had ever met.  He told me, Rachel we already know the cures to cancer.  He had served on some of the most prestigious cancer facilities in northern california.  But why was that not broadcasted?  He said he was not allowed to tell, and as we all know that industry makes billions every year.
I have never said nor will I ever that I treat cancer, because I don’t.  I help the body regain balance.  We all in fact have cancer cells.  Yes you have them now.  The way we deal with them and regenerate is what leads to it progressing.  What he eat, how we think, our surroundings, and what we inject in us.  The typical western route is either radiation or chemotherapy.  And although I support all my patients decisions, I don’t believe injections or taking toxic chemicals is the answer.  How can it be “good” to ingest chemicals? Again, I support all decisions, but remember this is a billion dollar industry.

Let’s talk a little bit about what is called the Warburg Effect. 

If you didn’t know, cancer cells LIVE and feed off glucose.  That is why a huge thing to cut down for most individuals is their sugar intake to starve it.  Cancer is defined by uncontrollable cell growth and division, so cancer cells need the building blocks and energy to make new cells much faster than healthy cells do. They rely heavily on the glucose and rapidly convert it to pyruvate via a process called glycolysis.  The Warburg effect is just that.  Cancer cells exhibit glucose fermentation even when enough oxygen is available to properly utilize.
In 2012, scientists wanted to know what the link was, so research commenced.  

When we look at genetic variants, we are looking specifically at something called enzymes. Enzymes either speed up a reaction or slow it down.  If the enzyme isn’t working properly, that means that the next step in our body making or utilizing something won’t happen. 

In particular, the scientists looked at a specific enzyme called citrate synthesis(CS). 
Here is a snip of my genetic chart (#3) to just show you where it is.  This enzyme comes in the ENERGY production (ATP) and utilization pathway.

In the study, they silenced or blocked this enzyme and the results are quite important.  The most important was that blocking this enzyme greatly increased (10 times!) migration and proliferation of cancer cells. They also found that inhibiting this enzyme accelerated tumor malignancy.  This is why: CS inhibition causes severe defects in mitochondrial respiration (thats how our energy cells breathe) and switches it to glucose uptake and up-regulates glycolytic metabolism.  You’ve heard me talk over and over again about the importance of oxygen, well here the cells needs oxygen as well and to utilize it. Since the mitochondria cells carry ATP our energy source, this means that ATP too was greatly decreased. Defects in mitochondria may promote tumor malignancy, forcing the cell to revert to the more primitive route of energy production through glycolysis.

Of course theres a lot more that is said in this study, and I will give the link if you choose to read it all, but this one enzyme is pretty huge increasing the risk for cancer. Since the body works as a unit it also blocks things further down the line that need to function as well.  One is cholesterol breakdown for hormone regulation and the electron transport chain which in the end creates that ATP (Energy).  I’m sure looking at that Kreb’s Cycle can bring back some high school chemistry days.  A lot goes into it, but that CITRATE up top is the key to get it started.  If we don’t have ATP we can’t regenerate new cells.  That means cancer cells can start to take over.  ATP can modulate the cell growth and bioenergetic metabolism of tumor cells, at least in part, through suppression of AMPK/p38 MAPK and ERK1 signaling and glycolytic enzyme expression and activation of p53 function ( sorry a lot of chemistry here, but just means more ATP less cancer cells).

So, if someone has a genetic variant in this enzymes ability to function, that can cause some pretty huge complications wouldn’t you think?  This is definitely a different way of looking at cancer.

What if we could optimize this enzymes function for those that have a compromised pathway?  With this enzyme working better, and energy production with oxygen utilization working more effectively it makes sense to think that will modulate proper cell growth and death.

This is the beauty of looking at specific chemical reactions in the body.  Testing for this gene can be a big find for anyone not only for treatment but also for prevention.  How many individuals have issues with cholesterol usually being too high, or gallbladder or weight/hormone issues?  That comes in here too.

Once knowing this, finding the night nutrient to help that enzyme properly work is the key.

When we get the body working better it heals.  Again we are looking at the body as a whole picture.  We need to look at toxin intake, diet and environment of course, but we can also help that person’s body function better, resulting in less availability of improper cell growth.

If you haven’t done my genetic nutrition yet, I suggest you do!  It’s been a big game changer for many.  It can take some time to figure out the perfect combo as we are learning more every month about genes, but already to success stories are flowing.

Look at how the body is functioning, not necessarily the “diagnosis”.  There you will find the answers.

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Frankincense.

Frankincense might not just reduce inflammation. It may also attack cancer cells directly.

This, say some researchers. could benefit people with leukemia and other types of cancer.

One of the challenges of cancer treatment is that, unlike bacteria or viruses, cancer cells are not foreign invaders. Instead, cancer occurs when the body’s cells grow out of control, attacking healthy tissue.

This process makes it difficult to fight cancer without also killing healthy cells. In fact, most cancer treatments do kill healthy cells.

Chemotherapy for example, kills many healthy cells as it fights cancer. This is why people often lose their hair, experience nausea, and become more vulnerable to infection during chemotherapy.

Some evidence suggests that frankincense might target cancer cells without harming healthy cells.

A laboratory study of bladder cancer, published in 2009, looked at how frankincense affected cultures of normal and cancerous bladder cells. The oil targeted cancerous cells, but it did not destroy healthy cells.

In 2015, further lab research found similar effects in breast cancer. The investigators found that frankincense could kill breast cancer cells and disrupt the growth of future cancer cells.

In 2016, scientist describing the properties of frankincense noted that it contains substances that have anti-tumor properties. These could prevent cancer cells from growing and lead to controlled cell death, or apoptosis.

These are early results, but they offer hope that substances that occur in frankincense might one day fight some forms of cancer without the potentially life-threatening effects of chemotherapy.

That is all for now.
have a happy and healthy week!

Persistent Impact of Trauma: Biological Implications

Hey Warriors.
I know it’s been a few weeks, so thanks for being patient!  It has definitely been a heavy past couple of weeks, and being a practitioner it’s hard to talk about health topics when more pressing issues have been at hand.

We know that this has been a long overdue injustice just coming to the surface.  
So many things I learned in school about healthcare always targeted those of color with increased risk for so many health conditions.  We do know there is white privilege, poverty leading to improper food availability and quality of food in African American neighborhoods consisting of mainly fast food and no access to healthier options.  This makes a huge impact as you can imagine in being able to live a healthy lifestyle.  But what about the other factors?  What about trauma?  What does that do biologically to one’s body over time… What does that do to a race overtime? 

If we look back in history of other injustices that have happened with the Native Americans and holocaust era, an impact still remains on those families that experienced the trauma. The past for many Native Americans is weaved into their modern lives. Racial and historical  experiences challenge us as clinicians: how can we understand the persistent impact of trauma—not just on the individuals affected but on the children of survivors and even on additional generations?

Researchers wanted to know more about this and began studying the aftermath of the holocaust. Many after the holocaust were diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. In the years that followed, accounts circulated of children of survivors who were also severely affected, but were believed to be from behavioral causes with the parents neglect.  Decades later, more research was conducted using modern tools and found many biological signs associated with trauma.   Interestingly, their children showed the same biological and epigenetic markers. On one hand, this demonstrated that the syndrome seen in the children was not merely behavioral—it was biologically mediated in the same way as their parents’.

It also raised a more profound question: did the children acquire these changes by virtue of their own traumatic experiences (being raised by a PTSD parent)? Or was it possible that there might be some other process at play?

” A team led by Brian Dias and Kerry Ressler developed an animal model that allowed them to tightly control all relevant parameters. First, they fear-conditioned mice to a specific olfactory stimulus (acetophenone). As expected, the mice showed an enhanced fear response to the stimulus smell. They further showed that the observed behavioral change was mediated by epigenetic upregulation of the acetophenone receptor. This was all consistent with previously published literature.

What they found next was truly stunning. The team extracted sperm from the fear-conditioned mice, performed in vitro fertilization, and then raised the offspring separately from the biological fathers. Extraordinarily, these offspring—and another generation beyond them—demonstrated increased fear responses to acetophenone. Moreover, their sensitivity stemmed from the same increased expression of the olfactory receptor, owing to epigenetic changes. These findings offered potential mechanistic proof that a learned behavior could be passed from one generation to the next via an epigenetic mechanism. In addition, they demonstrated the plausibility of Yehuda’s suggestion that biological symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder could be passed directly from one generation to the next.”

Wow.. Right?  I’ve also read studies prior that stated that emotional traumas can track back several generations, without us even knowing.

I raise this topic today not to dishearten our colored communities, as I have so much love and righteous anger for what has been happening.  This is to say that a healthy lifestyle seems impossible for some communities because of decades of trauma. This means that pain from trauma does not cease with death but may rather be woven into the (epi-)genetic architecture of generations that follow. Think about the genetic changes, the brain changes that occur.  It always shocks me when generational traumas come up in a session with a client as to what they can be holding onto.

  What if our healthcare system started to address this? 
I know, it would take a lot more things first. Like access to the care to for one.

HOPE.

There is also reason for hope: follow-up data from the mouse studies discussed above has shown that exposure therapy before mating appears to reverse the next generation’s inheritance of the behavioral and neurobiological marks of the previous trauma.  Perhaps there are ways in humans to heal (or at least prevent further transmission of) such wounds. I know this to be true.  Generational holds can be broken.  know this is not a typical health talk today, but it’s a REAL talk. 

As clinicians we must acknowledge and appreciate the biological implications of trauma, even without being a psychologist or psychiatrist. Trauma can assimilate in the body as pain.  And who comes to us for pain? EVERYONE. Furthermore, we need to increase our understanding of those who suffer from their ancestors’ traumatic experiences or current ones. Too many in the healthcare industry try to treat emotional ailments with physical medicine.  Yes means for food and availability of healthier options is of vital importance, but also during this time I think more than ever need to realize just the trauma aspect this has had on so many generations for too long. Generational fear, living in a free country that enslaves people.

The amazing thing about epi-genetics is you can change them.  We do that through mindset and nutrition and environment all the time.  Our hope is through this movement that things actually do change, they have to!  I think we are seeing some good come out, but I do believe we all need to not be silent anymore. And clinicians definitely need to do better. 

To all those who have been peacefully marching I support you.  To all my colored patients, I hope you know I love you and will continue to help spread the word.
Lastly,
I highly recommend you read the book white fragility for more information about this topic.  Please know that I am not discrediting those not of color that have gone through hardship or trauma either.

Share this to other healthcare providers.  They may need to start taking a different approach.

Also, thank you to all who gave gifts and wished me happy birthday last week.  I appreciate you all!

That is all for now.

Wishing you a happy and healthy week.
