Yet More Good News For Vitamin D!
By Nurse Mark
Over the past few Health Beats, we have been
singing the praises of increased amounts of Vitamin D - and offering
mainstream medical research in support of what we already know in the
natural medicine world. (Vitamin

Here is yet more proof of the value of this
vitamin, especially important in today's world of airline-traveling TB
carriers and drug-resistant strains of TB coming in to our country.
One dose of vitamin D boosts TB immunity - Yahoo!
There was a time, not so very long ago in
America, when TB was all-but-eradicated. Now with floods of immigrants
pouring over our borders from third world countries we are seeing a
resurgence of this disease.
Traditional (ancient) treatment for TB
involved "Fresh Air and Sunshine" - the fresh air to help purify the
lungs and prevent further spread of the disease, and the sunshine -
well, they don't call Vitamin D "The Sunshine Vitamin" for nothing! Even
modest exposure to sunshine boosts Vitamin D levels. For those living
where sunshine is not a year-round thing, or for those who avoid the
Vitamin D supplements are looking more valuable with every new
piece of mainstream research!
Dr. Myatt's Super Shake recipes: From a recent
email to a Wellness Club friend...
By Dr. Myatt
As I sit here drinking my morning mocha-java Super Shake, I decided that our
other HealthBeat subscribers would probably want to have the recipe, too.
First, let me preface by telling you that a Super Shake is a great-tasting,
complete and healthy meal in a glass. That's right, a "real deal" nutritious
"meal" disguised as a milkshake! And it tastes so good, even kidlets will drink
The basic recipe uses high-quality whey protein and flax oil, so you're getting
your essential protein and fatty acids. "Extras" include Maxi Fiber or ground
flax seed (to boost daily fiber consumption), L-glutamine (an amino acid that
curbs carbohydrate cravings and also helps boost the immune system and heal the
GI tract), Red Alert of Greens First (get your entire daily fruit and vegetable
"dose" in one delicious "pop"!) and flavorings.
Here are some "variations on a theme" of Super Shakes.
Basic Super Shake -- "The Full Monty"
vanilla whey protein
1 cup crushed ice
1-2 cups water (to desired thickness)
Directions: Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until creamy. Drink.
Alternative directions: Put in shaker cup and shake to blend. Drink. Enjoy.
(This won't be as creamy or "milkshake-like," but it still tastes great.
Super Shake "Lite"
1 scoop whey protein
1 tsp. flax oil
1 cup ice
1 cup water
Very Berry Super Shake
1 scoop vanilla whey
1 scoop Red Alert
1 tsp. Maxi Fiber
2 TBS. blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or other unsweetened berries
1 TBS. flax oil
Blend and drink.
Mocha Java Super Shake (my personal morning favorite; it trumps
Starbucks any day!)
1 scoop chocolate whey
1 cup plain coffee
1 cup plain water (or use 2 cups of coffee if you feel like walking on the
"wired side"! )
1 tsp. flax oil
Blend. Top with 2 TBS. real whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
German Chocolate Cake Shake
1 scoop chocolate whey
1 cup water
1 TBS. coconut cream
1 tsp. flax oil
Blend. Drink. Enjoy.
Experiment with various flavoring and combinations.
Try to keep the recipe "low carb," since as you read last week, carbohydrates
are WAY over-rated for their health benefits.
Send me your recipes and we'll publish the "keepers" in HealthBeat.
SO... Instead of grabbing a "fast-food" junk meal or skipping meals, why not
have a quick and tasty Super Shake and feel your energy level soar?
Alzheimer's, Heartburn Or Neither:
What's Your Pleasure?
By Nurse Mark
Pay attention, all you "heartburn" sufferers
- your "little purple pill", your acid blocker that you love so much,
has been linked to mental decline and dementia.
Yes, you read correctly,
these popular drugs known as H2 blockers including such favorites as Axid,
Pepcid, Tagamet, and Zantac have been shown in a recently published
study to increase the risk of developing mental impairment, including
dementia as severe as Alzheimer's disease, by two-and-a-half times.
Folks, I don't know about you, but I'm getting a little cynical and very
fed up with this onslaught of toxic offerings from Big Pharma - drugs
that kill, drugs that maim, drugs that make people stupid, drugs that
make people fat, drugs that make people senile - an all for conditions
that can easily be corrected without drugs!
Take "heartburn" and GERD or
"reflux" for example: This is almost entirely a "made-up" disease,
designed to sell expensive drugs and surgery. "Heartburn", "reflux" and
GERD can all be quickly and easily corrected with some dietary
corrections and a few simple and inexpensive supplements.

We Get Letters I - What Natural
Treatments Are Available For MS?
Susan wrote recently with this
all-too-common story of her treatment by "Conventional Medicine" and her
less-than-common decision to seek more natural solutions in regaining
Hi Dr. Myatt:
I've been a subscriber for a little over a year and am so appreciative
of the wealth of information you share!
I had progressive MS about 6 to 8 years ago, for which I had two rounds
of IV steroids then chemotherapy (cytoxin and a second drug) for six
months. It was on a "falling off a cliff" trajectory. I did Copaxone
also for six months. This threw my body immediately into menopause at
age 43. ... a long story shortened: These seemed to retard the progress,
but doctors said I would never get better, never recover lost function,
etc.; I often couldn't stand or walk unaided, was sometimes using a
wheelchair, was number from feet up to shoulders, etc.
I decided to get well, and did many natural things to rebuild my body
and nervous system, relying in part on readings from a friend who is
considered "the Edgar Cayce of Canada." As I began to recover in this
way, my doctors attributed it to the chemotherapy and recommended that I
continue the chemotherapy for two more years. At that point, I didn't
think I would survive -- I remember thinking about planning my funeral
one night -- so I decided to do things differently, and I stopped all
I recovered virtually all of the function, with only some residual
numbness and slight stiffness in my lower legs. I take no medication and
have no plans to do so, or to have future MRIs, unless something seems
to indicate the need.
I went this morning for a doctor's visit and came out with a fistful of
prescriptions -- she wants me to have a mammogram, to re-establish a
relationship with a neurologist for treatment of MS, to have a
colonoscopy because of my age, to have a bone density scan, and to do
routine blood work.
I will think this over, but I'm not willing to subject myself to any
more medical tests, including MRIs, or to take any pharmaceutical drugs
that I don't believe I need. Even if results of tests indicated a need
for Western medical measures, that likely would not be my first approach
-- particularly the pharmaceuticals.
I understand that you can't make professional recommendations! ... but
I'd truly like your thoughts on what your own approach might be. These
batteries of tests seem to be the only way to establish relationships
with medical doctors, but I am more concerned about my health than what
medical authorities might think at the moment. I do and will continue to
do much research and I consider good diet, exercise, energy work my
I would appreciate any thoughts you may have! And, again, I am happy to
set up a consultation if you wish.
Many thanks, and my deep appreciation for your work!
Dr. Myatt answers:
As you already seem to understand, a complicated case (and everyone's
personal story is different) really does require a consultation. Five
people with symptoms of MS or any other disease can have those problems
for five unique combinations of reasons!
An extensive list of "general" considerations for neurological disease,
(any or some combination of them could apply to you) can be found on our
Wellness Club website at this link:
Also, since you are interested in Edgar Cayce, the readings say to
always check the alignment of the coccyx, indicating that a previous
injury to the tailbone can sometimes trigger MS.
You've done a lot of good things for yourself already---- almost surely
quite a bit better than if you had gone the strictly conventional route.
Good for you! (We're not good at treating neurological diseases in
conventional medicine because we ignore all the correctable causes ----
like food allergy, heavy metal toxicity and neurotransmitter
Why have a bunch of high-tech tests when we don't have any treatments to
offer you? (Conventionally speaking again).
From an holistic standpoint, there is much we can do for MS. Of course,
once you no longer have symptoms, the conventional docs will say that
"MS is characterized by periods of remissions and exacerbations. This is
simply a remission, an expected finding in the course of the disease."
Blah, blah, blah.
Regardless of what anyone wants to call it, a "durable remission" (and
sometimes complete cure!) is certainly possible.
I look forward to working with you. MS is one disease where holistic
medicine has a LOT to offer!
We Get Letters II - Readers Ask Medical Questions...
Q.) Hello. I need to find some supplements that would give someone
My dearest friend is suffering from cancer. He's undergone radiation and now in
the midst of chemo. He's abominably weak.
We've found an alternative route but it also makes you weak before strong.
We need to make him strong enough to take the treatment.
Can you advise or put me in touch with someone who knows about
supplements/herbs/something natural that makes the body strong (and hopefully
quickly - he's so very weak).
Thank you so much for any help you can provide. - Barbara
A.) Barbara, This is an immensely
complicated question that you are asking!
It is impossible to even recommend an optimal dose
multivitamin since there may be some components of some multivitamins that could
be detrimental for someone with advanced cancer!
What we recommend to your friend will depend on so
many things - his kind of cancer, the stage of his cancer, the treatments that
he has had, the treatments he is receiving, the drugs he is taking and has
taken, his current physical condition, and so much more.
The very best thing you can do for your friend is to
have him schedule a consultation with Dr. Myatt so that she can have all this
information to work with and she and her research team can develop a
comprehensive health-restorative program for him.
Dr. Myatt is available by telephone for
alternative medicine consultations .
For more information,
see Dr. Myatt's telephone consult brochure .
There is no one magical, miraculous supplement or
herb that will "make someone strong" - and anyone who will try to tell you that
there is one thing is likely a charlatan, interested more in your money than in
your friend's health.
We work with many late-stage cancer patients - and
it is immensely satisfying and rewarding to see these people regain their
health, strength, and lives after the terrible things that Conventional Medicine
does to cancer patients.
Having said all that, one of the best things you
could do for your friend (besides a consultation with Dr. Myatt) would be to
give him SuperShakes two or three times daily to improve his nutrition and
provide him with the proteins and essential fatty acids he needs for strength
and healing. - Nurse Mark
Q.) I've heard that almonds are a good source of
anti-carcinogens. Is this true? Ann B.
A.) Almonds can be an excellent source of many important nutrients, some of
which are important for those persons dealing with cancer.
These nutrients can
be altered or damaged with high heat "pasteurization" and it is for this reason
that we are very concerned with the ABC / FDA decision to require steam or toxin
treatment of almonds.
So-called "bitter almonds" contain a cyanide-like compound
that you may have heard of - Laetril (Laetrile) - AKA Vitamin B17, which has
shown very strong anti-cancer properties but has been banned by the FDA based on
one report of a suspected overdose from a bottle of the substance consumed by a
toddler - a report that is contested...
Commercially grown almonds contain
little or none of this substance as they are "bred" for sweetness and
palatability. Apricot pits do contain significant amounts of this compound.
wishing more information regarding the use of these compounds would be very well
advised to have a consultation with Dr. Myatt - she is very knowledgeable and
expert in the use of these and other anti-cancer treatments and protocols. --
Q.) Hello Dr. Myatt,
Could you send me some info on putting good bacteria into the colon/intestines?
(eg: Probiotics). I know they can be taken for example after
a good colon cleanse, but can and is it wise to take them on a regular basis?
Can you put too much good bacteria into the colon/intestines? - Pat
A.) There's no such thing as "too many good bugs" in the colon!
Be sure to use a
potent probiotic formula that is ENTERIC COATED, which means
it will not break down in the stomach and be destroyed by stomach acid.
check out my
"Supermadophilus" formula. It is one of the most potent probiotic
formulas available, and it is enteric coated so the good bacteria really make it
all the way to your large intestine! - Dr. Myatt
Q.) Thank you so much for this article as I am a diabetic and I attended a
series of classes at a local hospital and they prescribed 45-60 Carbs per meal
which basically I have been doing, only to find that my blood glucose readings
are getting worse----I attended you class at Virginia Beach in 1999 and was very
impressed-----thank you so much for writing on carbs---does diet have anything
to do with incontinence? --Beverly
A.) Woo! Gotta' love the current conventional medical recommendations for
diabetes --- guaranteed to ensure that you will be a diabetic for the rest of
your life! (And a good consumer of diabetes drugs, test kits, regular check-ups
and maybe even surgery to amputate a limb.... but I digress...).
OFF that bogus high-carb diet and on to a low carb diet. 45-60 grams is more
carbs than you should be getting in a DAY, much less one meal!
incontinence, before we go looking for more complicated answers, make sure you
are following the simple but effective advice offered for urinary incontinence
on our Wellness Club website:
Please let me know how this works for you! -- Dr. Myatt
Laughter is Good Medicine:
It is no secret that we believe
that "Mother Nature knows best!" Big Pharma must believe so too - for they
are constantly on the lookout for natural substances and remedies (which cannot
be patented, because they are already occurring in nature) that they can take
into their laboratories to analyze and synthesize. These once natural substances,
now artificial, synthesized, and bearing little real resemblance to anything in
nature are called "drugs" and are patentable, profitable, and because they
are so un-natural, they are often quite toxic. But who cares, as long as the
money keeps rolling in to Big Pharma - Right?
Here is the commentary that goes
along with this cartoon:
Big Pharma is engaged in massive
global biopiracy by stealing molecules from nature and patenting them as drugs.
Today's cartoon depicts the cruel double standard and warped intellectual
property laws that allow Western nations to steal from countries like China (or
Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia) without paying them a dime in royalties.
