    The Misdiagnosis of Osteoporosis

    Machi Mannu - Wednesday, July 13, 2016

    Osteoporosis is a commonly diagnosed medical problem. However, an increasing number of healthcare professionals are now asking questions regarding the validity of the diagnosis and the recommended treatment.

    Osteoporosis refers to the loss of bone density and nearly always diagnosed in women. The diagnosis is usually made after a bone density scan or DEXA scan. However, many healthcare professionals question the reliability and safety of the bone density scan. For a start, the scan utilises X-rays which have been confirmed to cause severe damage to cells as well as cancer. 

    The DEXA scan is also an antiquated diagnostic technology and has remained unchanged since the 1980s when it was first produced. 

    But the worst flaw of DEXA scans is that they produce very inconsistent results. A study by Dr Susan Ott of The Washington State University had about 300 women take 2 DEXA scans, one taken soon after they came into a room, and the second after walking around the room for a few minutes. She found that the repeat experiments done on the same day revealed as much as 7% difference in scan results.

    Other studies show that DEXA scan reports are favourable towards women with larger bones. DEXA scan results will also vary depending on the type of equipment used, the location of the equipment, as well as the operator and the reader of the scan. Several healthcare groups are of the opinion that the DEXA scan should no longer be in use.

    Another concern surrounding osteoporosis is the drugs used for treatment which shockingly cause serious damage to bones. Understanding how such drugs damage our bones requires a brief understanding of how bones stay healthy. Our bones undergo a continual cycle of renewal, with old tissue removed, and new tissue produced to take the place of the old. And through this process, the bones stay healthy and strong.

    Prescription drugs used for treating osteoporosis halts the removal of old bone tissue, leaving new bone tissue to pile on top of the old. The bones appear thicker on a DEXA scan, but in reality, they are weak and brittle and easily prone to fractures.  The commonest of such harmful drugs prescribed for osteoporosis are a class of drugs known as bisphosphonates, which includes alendronic acid and zoledronic acid.

    The commonest side effects of such medications include bone fractures, jaw necrosis, irregular heart beat and oesophageal cancer.

    The best way to strengthen bones and joints is by taking a natural mineral called MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane) also known as fundamental sulphur. The body uses MSM to produce collagen, and collagen is vital for maintaining the structure and strength of the bones, joints, skin, hair, nails and the supporting fibres of the internal organs.

  • You probably believe that cholesterol is the greatest health threat facing your heart today. But truth be told, cholesterol is probably the most useful nutrient required by your body. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol. There is only one cholesterol and it is good cholesterol.

    What is wrongfully called ‘Bad cholesterol’ is a transporter of cholesterol that moves cholesterol from the liver to other parts of the body. And the so-called ‘good cholesterol’ is a transporter that moves cholesterol from other parts of the body to the liver.

    Cholesterol plays such a useful role in the body that the body makes 70% of the total cholesterol in the body. Only 30% of all the cholesterol in the body comes from our diet. Cholesterol is critical for our survival. Over half of the dry weight of the brain is cholesterol. A membrane composed of cholesterol protects every cell in the body. The nerves are protected by a padding of cholesterol called the myelin sheath.

     

    Biologists point out that the main difference between animals and plants is the presence of cholesterol in animals. Plants do not have cholesterol. Cholesterol is critical for the functioning of the brain and nervous system, and low cholesterol is associated with neurological problems including depression, insomnia, irritability and memory loss.

    The underlying cause of heart disease and stroke is inflammation of the arteries and not high cholesterol. And the main cause of inflammation of arteries is toxins, especially the type known as free radicals. Inflammation attracts clotting cells or platelets to the arteries, and over time, these accumulate, eventually blocking arteries.

    The body produces more cholesterol to fight inflammation. Today more and more health experts recognise that the best way to treat heart disease and stroke is not to lower cholesterol with harmful cholesterol-lowering drugs, but to reduce inflammation in the body.

    Cholesterol is not a danger to health, and worse still, the medications used to lower cholesterol such as statins are one of the most poisonous drugs prescribed today. If you are worried about raised cholesterol, there are natural alternatives that do not have side effects and are more effective than statins such as policosanol.

  • MitoQ is a product that doesn’t simply cover up the signs of diseases and ageing; it goes to the cause and works at a cellular level, making it the most effective product currently on the market.

    Ten years ago, Dr Smith and Dr Murphy, Cambridge graduate researchers realised that to unlock the energy potential of the body, and achieve all-round healing of the body, they had to find a way to super-charge the ´energy power centres´located in every cell in the body called the Mitochondria.

    The scientists eventually found a way to deliver the most vital ingredient needed for energy generation in the body called CoQ10, directly into the ´energy power stations´of cells – the mitochondria. Nothing like this had been done before and their amazing feat of medical engineering led to the creation of the most exciting supplement of our time known as MitoQ.

    MITOQ IS 847 TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY OTHER COQ10 SUPPLEMENT

    To understand the incredible power of MitoQ, you need to understand the role of the mitochondria in sustaining life. Scientists used to believe that the mitochondria were vital for generating energy. However, recent scientific studies now show that the mitochondria may be the most important structure in the cell.

    The mitochondria are now known to generate signals that control all the activity of cells, including the production of DNA – the blueprint of life. The ability of cells to correctly hear these messages from the mitochondria determines how well our bodies grow, repair themselves and fight off infections s and diseases.

    Damaged Mitochondria send incorrect messages, disrupts energy generation, and produces toxic waste that creates chronic diseases. Even worse, defective mitochondria will create other defective mitochondria and eventually energy generation in the body completely collapses.

    Damaged mitochondria cause many chronic diseases including heart, liver and kidney diseases; Alzheimer's; Multiple Sclerosis; Diabetes as well as ageing

    Scientists are only just realising the vulnerability of mitochondria to subtle changes in the environment. Pollution, medications, toxic chemicals and low levels of antioxidants such as CoQ10 are known to cause severe damage to the mitochondria.

    MitoQ has been carefully formulated to release CoQ10 – the most powerful antioxidant in the body, directly into the mitochondria of cells, where it is needed the most.

    Take two capsules a day and stop the signs of ageing

    It is no secret that the body starts to decline from the age of twenty. One of the first signs of ageing is the look and feel of our skin. When the skin starts to show the signs of ageing, it also means that our organs are also starting to age. In time, we will start to feel old and our bodies won’t be youthful as they once were.

    And here is where MitoQ comes to the rescue. By taking two capsules of MitoQ a day, anyone can slow down, stop or even reverse the signs of ageing.

    The science behind MitoQ is simple – the ingredients stop cells from being affected by age. It may seem like futuristic medicine but with over a decade of research, it does work.

    Look great, feel great

    Looking young and healthy may be the main reason many people choose MitoQ but it is certainly not the only benefit.

    By giving your body a boost at a cellular level, the MitoQ affects every part of your body, inside and out. MitoQ rejuvenates all your organs, and boosts your energy levels and you will find that your brain is sharper and quicker. Many people taking MitoQ report feeling as good as they did 5,10 or even 15 years ago.

    Increased energy levels will naturally lead to a more active lifestyle which in turn will also help to keep you looking and feeling younger. Combining MitoQ capsules with a healthy diet and recommended amount of exercise has proven to be the most effective way of fighting the symptoms of ageing.

    MitoQ is also available as a serum.

  • If you are over 55, the chances are that you are taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. Statins are the most prescribed drugs in the world even though they have remained hugely controversial since approval for public use in the mid-1980s.

    Statins are claimed to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of developing heart disease.  But critics point out that the rate of heart disease has continued to increase year in year out, although millions more people take statins every year.

    The most damaging effects of statin drugs (even manufacturers of statins agree), is that they stop the body from making a vital chemical called Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10. Quite simply, CoQ10 equates to energy.

    In the body, CoQ10 is found in abundant quantities in our most active organs – the muscles, brain, heart, kidneys, liver and eyes. When CoQ10 levels are low, very little energy is generated, and very little work gets done by the body. CoQ10 is also the most powerful antioxidant in your body. Antioxidants mop up toxic compounds known as free radicals. These toxic free radicals are the trigger for many chronic diseases including heart failure, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer´s, glaucoma, as well as ageing.

    Hundreds of scientific studies confirm that statins do far more harm than good by depriving the body of CoQ10. In many parts of the world, doctors will only prescribe statins together with an ample amount of CoQ10 supplement.

    But the problem with CoQ10 supplements is that they are not designed to travel deep into the cells where they are needed the most.

    MitoQ is a brand new form of CoQ10 designed to transport CoQ10 directly into the ´energy generating stations´of cells – the mitochondria. For this reason, MitoQ is over 800 times more powerful than any other CoQ10 supplement in the market today.

    But here is what makes MitoQ unique. By driving huge quantities of CoQ10 directly into the ´power stations´ of cells, MitoQ promotes healing in every part of the body, especially in hard-working organs like the brain, heart, muscles, liver, kidney and eyes.

    Ten years of studies have shown that MitoQ is effective for treating and preventing many chronic diseases, including Heart Failure, Stroke, High blood pressure, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and Kidney Diseases.

    If you must take statins, consider taking MitoQ to protect your body from damage.

  • We know from our clinical experience that Serrapeptase dissolves plaque that clogs arteries to cause heart attacks and strokes. Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries is the condition that leads to a build-up of plaque on the walls of the arteries which eventually causes heart attacks and strokes. The follow-up scan carried out in our clinic 3 months after the initial scan, show that treatment with serrapeptase dissolves plaque and cleans out the arteries. 

    Serrapeptase is a natural enzyme produced by the cocoon of the silkworm, helping it dissolve out of the cocoon to emerge as a butterfly. Many years ago, a scientist and medical doctor Dr Nieper discovered that the enzyme serrapeptase will only dissolve dead tissue and allows the living tissue to thrive. Most interestingly, this enzyme works the same way in humans. Several studies show that serrapeptase dissolves unwanted tissue from the body.

  • Dr Hugh Fudenberg, a foremost immunologist and publisher of over 800 medical publications discovered during his research that the chances of developing Alzheimer´s disease were 10 times higher for people who have received over 10 consecutive flu vaccines than for people who received fewer than 2 flu vaccines. 

    Vaccines contain many toxic compounds that cause intense inflammation of the whole body including the immune system.  Most vaccines typically contain formaldehyde, aluminium hydroxide, and animal proteins from infected animals, Gelatin, and thimerosal - a preservative with very high levels of mercury. Research carried out at the University of Calgary showed that exposing the brain to mercury caused the formation of the same markers ´Plaques and Tangles´ found in the brains of people with Alzheimer´s disease.

    Our experience at MedB clinic is that towards the end of the year when people start receiving flu vaccines, we see a higher incidence of immune system problems and microbial infections from people who have just received the flu vaccine. And yet we have also seen a few people who have received the flu vaccine for over 10 years without serious problems.

    The best way to protect yourself against the flu is to start strengthening your immune system in the weeks coming up to winter. And you can do this with immune system enhancers, especially Reishi, and Colostrum. Vitamin D is also very important for protecting the immune system and preventing flu and colds. Low sunlight in the winter months is linked to low levels of vitamin D causing resulting in a weak immune system and increased flu infections.

  • During the winter months, joint aches and pains are a common complaint at our clinic. The general assumption is that joint problems are worse in winter due to the cold and damp weather. And while there is some truth in the assumption, it does not tell the whole story.

     

     

    Clinical Studies show that people who suffer from joint aches and pain in the winter months have much lower levels of vitamin D than the healthier population. Although Vitamin D is regarded as a vitamin, in reality, vitamin D is a hormone and a very important one. Vitamin D is well-known for its role in bone and joint development and maintenance. However, what is not well-known is the important role vitamin D plays in regulating the immune system.

     

    Our immune system not only protects us against infections from virus, bacteria and fungi but also protects us from allergies and autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body starts producing antibodies that attack its tissues, and in our case, the joints and bones. Winter aches and pains occur primarily due to a dysfunctional immune system, which promotes chronic inflammation of the bones, joints and surrounding tissues.

     

    The best source of Vitamin D is sunlight, and studies have shown that the quality of Vitamin D from sunlight is even superior to the best supplements. However, even in Sunnier Regions of Europe such as in Southern Spain, the body may not produce enough vitamin D from the sun as there is little skin exposure to sunlight because of our winter clothing.  Nevertheless, taking Vitamin D supplements may be the only solution for many people, living in colder and less sunny climes such as the UK and Ireland. Many of our patients at MedB clinic who suffer from joint pains mainly in the winter have reported pain relief since starting vitamin D supplements.

     

    The recommended dose of the supplement should be between 4000 and 8,000 IU daily, and liquid vitamin D is preferable to tablets or capsules. You should take a lot less or cut it out completely during the summer season.

    Full Body Diagnostic Scan at MedB

    Machi Mannu - Friday, January 22, 2016

    You can have a full body diagnostic scan at MedB Clinic. Unlike other scans and health checks such as X-rays, CT-scans and blood tests, the diagnostic scan at MedB is non-invasive and examines nearly all aspects of health. In addition to a full examination of the organs and systems, the scan also includes a blood test, microbiological analysis for viruses, bacteria and fungi, check for toxic contaminants, food allergies and chemical sensitivities.

     

    The report you get after the scan will include all the findings from the scan, as well as a list of the presumptive diagnosis and possible complications. The scan can detect many diseases as well as some cancers. However, it is not a cancer screening scan. Because of the insidious and unpredictable nature of cancer, it is extremely difficult to screen for cancer cells in the body. The only confirmatory test for any cancer is a biopsy.

    At MedB Clinic, we can treat most diseases detected using tested and scientifically proven natural remedies. And when we detect a disease we are unable to treat, we refer the patient for specialist care. We understand and recognize that the body is capable of recovering from any disease when supported in the right way.

     

    The human body performs many thousands of complex chemical reactions every day without our awareness or conscious help. Just as the body can digest the most complex foods into simple nutrients - a feat that cannot be produced by any man-made machine, so also can it heal itself. Studies have shown that most diseases are as a result of inflammation caused by either nutritional deficiencies, toxic overload or infections.

    When we identify the cause of a disease, it becomes possible to heal the body by treating the cause, and not treating symptoms to manage the disease.

    The Right Type of Food

    Machi Mannu - Friday, January 22, 2016

    Improving your diet is probably the most important step you can take to keep healthy. The right type of food will heal many diseases. Food provides the raw material the body needs to produce the many different chemicals essential for our well being.  If you suffer from any chronic illness, becoming aware of what goes into your mouth, will do more to improve your health than any medication.

     

    Our foods contain nutrients divided into different groups – carbohydrates, proteins, fats, oils, vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates digest into simple sugars that are necessary for producing energy while proteins break down into amino acids, the building blocks of life. Fats and Oils provide energy reserves that sustain the body in times of need. Vitamins and Minerals play the most diverse role, including acting as catalysts to speed up reactions in the body, maintaining the structure of organs and regenerating broken down organs.

     

    Your body needs all nutrient groups in a balanced and adequate proportion to stay healthy and active. When the body receives more proteins than carbohydrates, for example, it creates an imbalance that can lead to disease. Protein requires a lot of energy to process, and consuming protein rich diet will drain the body of energy and accelerate ageing. Consuming a lot of Carbs, on the other hand, will result in weight gain.

    Yes, some people will have a body more suited to one class of nutrients than another, preferring more protein to carbohydrates, or more fats to carbs, we still need to include all food groups in our diet. The key is to learn as much as you can about food and nutrition and to listen to your body to find out what it needs.

Improving your diet is probably the most important step you can take to keep healthy. The right type of food will heal many diseases. Food provides the raw material the body needs to produce the many different chemicals essential for our well being.  If you suffer from any chronic illness, becoming aware of what goes into your mouth, will do more to improve your health than any medication.

 

Our foods contain nutrients divided into different groups – carbohydrates, proteins, fats, oils, vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates digest into simple sugars that are necessary for producing energy while proteins break down into amino acids, the building blocks of life. Fats and Oils provide energy reserves that sustain the body in times of need. Vitamins and Minerals play the most diverse role, including acting as catalysts to speed up reactions in the body, maintaining the structure of organs and regenerating broken down organs.

 

Your body needs all nutrient groups in a balanced and adequate proportion to stay healthy and active. When the body receives more proteins than carbohydrates, for example, it creates an imbalance that can lead to disease. Protein requires a lot of energy to process, and consuming protein rich diet will drain the body of energy and accelerate ageing. Consuming a lot of Carbs, on the other hand, will result in weight gain.

    Are You Addicted To Painkillers?

    Machi Mannu - Sunday, November 15, 2015

    We all instinctively avoid pain; however, it is essential to our survival because it communicates danger and like an early warning system, allows us time to act. Pain is the most common reason we see the doctor and is considered a symptom in medical disorders although it is treated conveniently as a disease, usually by overworked doctors, hard pressed for time and resorting to over prescribing pain killers to keep the line going.  

    Treating symptoms has created a ‘quick fix’ attitude to health, with many people believing that an end to pain also means a cure for the disease. And in healthcare, this isn’t always the case.  Our natural reaction as human beings is to seek an instant remedy when we suffer pain. Unfortunately for us, the profit-oriented pharmaceutical industry also understands this aspect of human psychology quite well.   And of course for them it’s more profitable to find an instant remedy for pain than a cure for the disease.

    Pain killers give an impression of healing but with the cause still present, the pain usually returns after a short while, requiring more painkillers, and the cycle continues.  What is worse is that the number of deaths from painkillers has risen sharply over the years mainly due to over-prescriptions. Most prescribed medications will cause severe damage to the body if taken even over a short period, but painkillers have an even deadlier edge to them. 

    Nerves transmit pain, and by nature, they become sensitized to drug stimulation over time, making them require larger doses of painkillers to produce the same amount of pain relief. Over time, this creates an addiction to painkillers, and the stronger the painkiller, the stronger the addiction.

    Even though there are thousands of brands of painkillers available in pharmacies, there are just three classes of painkillers– Paracetamol, NSAIDS (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and opioids or narcotics. Of these classes, the most addictive are narcotics. People who take paracetamol repeatedly for on-going pain run a risk of developing a ‘staggered overdose,' a condition associated with a high risk of liver disease that may require a liver transplant.

    NSAIDs are the next line of painkillers usually prescribed when paracetamol isn’t strong enough to provide pain relief. There are three main types of NSAIDS – Ibuprofen, naproxen and COX inhibitors, and all three are sold under many different brand names. NSAIDs can cause gastric and duodenal ulcers, bleeding and perforation.

    Opioids are the strongest class of painkillers and include several brands containing tramadol, hydrocodone, morphine or combinations or their combinations. These drugs belong to the same class as heroin and cocaine, and the psychological symptoms of those taking these illegal drugs or even suffering from alcoholism, are no different from those taking opioid painkillers. Other side effects include depression, weight gain and bone and joint problems. If you are in pain, don’t just reach for painkillers; make an appointment with your doctor to find out the cause of the problem.

    The Misdiagnosis of Osteoporosis

    Machi Mannu - Wednesday, July 13, 2016

    Osteoporosis is a commonly diagnosed medical problem. However, an increasing number of healthcare professionals are now asking questions regarding the validity of the diagnosis and the recommended treatment.

    Osteoporosis refers to the loss of bone density and nearly always diagnosed in women. The diagnosis is usually made after a bone density scan or DEXA scan. However, many healthcare professionals question the reliability and safety of the bone density scan. For a start, the scan utilises X-rays which have been confirmed to cause severe damage to cells as well as cancer. 

    The DEXA scan is also an antiquated diagnostic technology and has remained unchanged since the 1980s when it was first produced. 

    But the worst flaw of DEXA scans is that they produce very inconsistent results. A study by Dr Susan Ott of The Washington State University had about 300 women take 2 DEXA scans, one taken soon after they came into a room, and the second after walking around the room for a few minutes. She found that the repeat experiments done on the same day revealed as much as 7% difference in scan results.

    Other studies show that DEXA scan reports are favourable towards women with larger bones. DEXA scan results will also vary depending on the type of equipment used, the location of the equipment, as well as the operator and the reader of the scan. Several healthcare groups are of the opinion that the DEXA scan should no longer be in use.

    Another concern surrounding osteoporosis is the drugs used for treatment which shockingly cause serious damage to bones. Understanding how such drugs damage our bones requires a brief understanding of how bones stay healthy. Our bones undergo a continual cycle of renewal, with old tissue removed, and new tissue produced to take the place of the old. And through this process, the bones stay healthy and strong.

    Prescription drugs used for treating osteoporosis halts the removal of old bone tissue, leaving new bone tissue to pile on top of the old. The bones appear thicker on a DEXA scan, but in reality, they are weak and brittle and easily prone to fractures.  The commonest of such harmful drugs prescribed for osteoporosis are a class of drugs known as bisphosphonates, which includes alendronic acid and zoledronic acid.

    The commonest side effects of such medications include bone fractures, jaw necrosis, irregular heart beat and oesophageal cancer.

    The best way to strengthen bones and joints is by taking a natural mineral called MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane) also known as fundamental sulphur. The body uses MSM to produce collagen, and collagen is vital for maintaining the structure and strength of the bones, joints, skin, hair, nails and the supporting fibres of the internal organs.

  • You probably believe that cholesterol is the greatest health threat facing your heart today. But truth be told, cholesterol is probably the most useful nutrient required by your body. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as good or bad cholesterol. There is only one cholesterol and it is good cholesterol.

    What is wrongfully called ‘Bad cholesterol’ is a transporter of cholesterol that moves cholesterol from the liver to other parts of the body. And the so-called ‘good cholesterol’ is a transporter that moves cholesterol from other parts of the body to the liver.

    Cholesterol plays such a useful role in the body that the body makes 70% of the total cholesterol in the body. Only 30% of all the cholesterol in the body comes from our diet. Cholesterol is critical for our survival. Over half of the dry weight of the brain is cholesterol. A membrane composed of cholesterol protects every cell in the body. The nerves are protected by a padding of cholesterol called the myelin sheath.

     

    Biologists point out that the main difference between animals and plants is the presence of cholesterol in animals. Plants do not have cholesterol. Cholesterol is critical for the functioning of the brain and nervous system, and low cholesterol is associated with neurological problems including depression, insomnia, irritability and memory loss.

    The underlying cause of heart disease and stroke is inflammation of the arteries and not high cholesterol. And the main cause of inflammation of arteries is toxins, especially the type known as free radicals. Inflammation attracts clotting cells or platelets to the arteries, and over time, these accumulate, eventually blocking arteries.

    The body produces more cholesterol to fight inflammation. Today more and more health experts recognise that the best way to treat heart disease and stroke is not to lower cholesterol with harmful cholesterol-lowering drugs, but to reduce inflammation in the body.

    Cholesterol is not a danger to health, and worse still, the medications used to lower cholesterol such as statins are one of the most poisonous drugs prescribed today. If you are worried about raised cholesterol, there are natural alternatives that do not have side effects and are more effective than statins such as policosanol.

  • MitoQ is a product that doesn’t simply cover up the signs of diseases and ageing; it goes to the cause and works at a cellular level, making it the most effective product currently on the market.

    Ten years ago, Dr Smith and Dr Murphy, Cambridge graduate researchers realised that to unlock the energy potential of the body, and achieve all-round healing of the body, they had to find a way to super-charge the ´energy power centres´located in every cell in the body called the Mitochondria.

    The scientists eventually found a way to deliver the most vital ingredient needed for energy generation in the body called CoQ10, directly into the ´energy power stations´of cells – the mitochondria. Nothing like this had been done before and their amazing feat of medical engineering led to the creation of the most exciting supplement of our time known as MitoQ.

    MITOQ IS 847 TIMES MORE POWERFUL THAN ANY OTHER COQ10 SUPPLEMENT

    To understand the incredible power of MitoQ, you need to understand the role of the mitochondria in sustaining life. Scientists used to believe that the mitochondria were vital for generating energy. However, recent scientific studies now show that the mitochondria may be the most important structure in the cell.

    The mitochondria are now known to generate signals that control all the activity of cells, including the production of DNA – the blueprint of life. The ability of cells to correctly hear these messages from the mitochondria determines how well our bodies grow, repair themselves and fight off infections s and diseases.

    Damaged Mitochondria send incorrect messages, disrupts energy generation, and produces toxic waste that creates chronic diseases. Even worse, defective mitochondria will create other defective mitochondria and eventually energy generation in the body completely collapses.

    Damaged mitochondria cause many chronic diseases including heart, liver and kidney diseases; Alzheimer's; Multiple Sclerosis; Diabetes as well as ageing

    Scientists are only just realising the vulnerability of mitochondria to subtle changes in the environment. Pollution, medications, toxic chemicals and low levels of antioxidants such as CoQ10 are known to cause severe damage to the mitochondria.

    MitoQ has been carefully formulated to release CoQ10 – the most powerful antioxidant in the body, directly into the mitochondria of cells, where it is needed the most.

    Take two capsules a day and stop the signs of ageing

    It is no secret that the body starts to decline from the age of twenty. One of the first signs of ageing is the look and feel of our skin. When the skin starts to show the signs of ageing, it also means that our organs are also starting to age. In time, we will start to feel old and our bodies won’t be youthful as they once were.

    And here is where MitoQ comes to the rescue. By taking two capsules of MitoQ a day, anyone can slow down, stop or even reverse the signs of ageing.

    The science behind MitoQ is simple – the ingredients stop cells from being affected by age. It may seem like futuristic medicine but with over a decade of research, it does work.

    Look great, feel great

    Looking young and healthy may be the main reason many people choose MitoQ but it is certainly not the only benefit.

    By giving your body a boost at a cellular level, the MitoQ affects every part of your body, inside and out. MitoQ rejuvenates all your organs, and boosts your energy levels and you will find that your brain is sharper and quicker. Many people taking MitoQ report feeling as good as they did 5,10 or even 15 years ago.

    Increased energy levels will naturally lead to a more active lifestyle which in turn will also help to keep you looking and feeling younger. Combining MitoQ capsules with a healthy diet and recommended amount of exercise has proven to be the most effective way of fighting the symptoms of ageing.

    MitoQ is also available as a serum.

  • If you are over 55, the chances are that you are taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. Statins are the most prescribed drugs in the world even though they have remained hugely controversial since approval for public use in the mid-1980s.

    Statins are claimed to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of developing heart disease.  But critics point out that the rate of heart disease has continued to increase year in year out, although millions more people take statins every year.

    The most damaging effects of statin drugs (even manufacturers of statins agree), is that they stop the body from making a vital chemical called Coenzyme Q10 or CoQ10. Quite simply, CoQ10 equates to energy.

    In the body, CoQ10 is found in abundant quantities in our most active organs – the muscles, brain, heart, kidneys, liver and eyes. When CoQ10 levels are low, very little energy is generated, and very little work gets done by the body. CoQ10 is also the most powerful antioxidant in your body. Antioxidants mop up toxic compounds known as free radicals. These toxic free radicals are the trigger for many chronic diseases including heart failure, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer´s, glaucoma, as well as ageing.

    Hundreds of scientific studies confirm that statins do far more harm than good by depriving the body of CoQ10. In many parts of the world, doctors will only prescribe statins together with an ample amount of CoQ10 supplement.

    But the problem with CoQ10 supplements is that they are not designed to travel deep into the cells where they are needed the most.

    MitoQ is a brand new form of CoQ10 designed to transport CoQ10 directly into the ´energy generating stations´of cells – the mitochondria. For this reason, MitoQ is over 800 times more powerful than any other CoQ10 supplement in the market today.

    But here is what makes MitoQ unique. By driving huge quantities of CoQ10 directly into the ´power stations´ of cells, MitoQ promotes healing in every part of the body, especially in hard-working organs like the brain, heart, muscles, liver, kidney and eyes.

    Ten years of studies have shown that MitoQ is effective for treating and preventing many chronic diseases, including Heart Failure, Stroke, High blood pressure, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and Kidney Diseases.

    If you must take statins, consider taking MitoQ to protect your body from damage.

  • We know from our clinical experience that Serrapeptase dissolves plaque that clogs arteries to cause heart attacks and strokes. Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries is the condition that leads to a build-up of plaque on the walls of the arteries which eventually causes heart attacks and strokes. The follow-up scan carried out in our clinic 3 months after the initial scan, show that treatment with serrapeptase dissolves plaque and cleans out the arteries. 

    Serrapeptase is a natural enzyme produced by the cocoon of the silkworm, helping it dissolve out of the cocoon to emerge as a butterfly. Many years ago, a scientist and medical doctor Dr Nieper discovered that the enzyme serrapeptase will only dissolve dead tissue and allows the living tissue to thrive. Most interestingly, this enzyme works the same way in humans. Several studies show that serrapeptase dissolves unwanted tissue from the body.

  • Dr Hugh Fudenberg, a foremost immunologist and publisher of over 800 medical publications discovered during his research that the chances of developing Alzheimer´s disease were 10 times higher for people who have received over 10 consecutive flu vaccines than for people who received fewer than 2 flu vaccines. 

    Vaccines contain many toxic compounds that cause intense inflammation of the whole body including the immune system.  Most vaccines typically contain formaldehyde, aluminium hydroxide, and animal proteins from infected animals, Gelatin, and thimerosal - a preservative with very high levels of mercury. Research carried out at the University of Calgary showed that exposing the brain to mercury caused the formation of the same markers ´Plaques and Tangles´ found in the brains of people with Alzheimer´s disease.

    Our experience at MedB clinic is that towards the end of the year when people start receiving flu vaccines, we see a higher incidence of immune system problems and microbial infections from people who have just received the flu vaccine. And yet we have also seen a few people who have received the flu vaccine for over 10 years without serious problems.

    The best way to protect yourself against the flu is to start strengthening your immune system in the weeks coming up to winter. And you can do this with immune system enhancers, especially Reishi, and Colostrum. Vitamin D is also very important for protecting the immune system and preventing flu and colds. Low sunlight in the winter months is linked to low levels of vitamin D causing resulting in a weak immune system and increased flu infections.

  • During the winter months, joint aches and pains are a common complaint at our clinic. The general assumption is that joint problems are worse in winter due to the cold and damp weather. And while there is some truth in the assumption, it does not tell the whole story.

     

     

    Clinical Studies show that people who suffer from joint aches and pain in the winter months have much lower levels of vitamin D than the healthier population. Although Vitamin D is regarded as a vitamin, in reality, vitamin D is a hormone and a very important one. Vitamin D is well-known for its role in bone and joint development and maintenance. However, what is not well-known is the important role vitamin D plays in regulating the immune system.

     

    Our immune system not only protects us against infections from virus, bacteria and fungi but also protects us from allergies and autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body starts producing antibodies that attack its tissues, and in our case, the joints and bones. Winter aches and pains occur primarily due to a dysfunctional immune system, which promotes chronic inflammation of the bones, joints and surrounding tissues.

     

    The best source of Vitamin D is sunlight, and studies have shown that the quality of Vitamin D from sunlight is even superior to the best supplements. However, even in Sunnier Regions of Europe such as in Southern Spain, the body may not produce enough vitamin D from the sun as there is little skin exposure to sunlight because of our winter clothing.  Nevertheless, taking Vitamin D supplements may be the only solution for many people, living in colder and less sunny climes such as the UK and Ireland. Many of our patients at MedB clinic who suffer from joint pains mainly in the winter have reported pain relief since starting vitamin D supplements.

     

    The recommended dose of the supplement should be between 4000 and 8,000 IU daily, and liquid vitamin D is preferable to tablets or capsules. You should take a lot less or cut it out completely during the summer season.

During the winter months, joint aches and pains are a common complaint at our clinic. The general assumption is that joint problems are worse in winter due to the cold and damp weather. And while there is some truth in the assumption, it does not tell the whole story.

 

 

Clinical Studies show that people who suffer from joint aches and pain in the winter months have much lower levels of vitamin D than the healthier population. Although Vitamin D is regarded as a vitamin, in reality, vitamin D is a hormone and a very important one. Vitamin D is well-known for its role in bone and joint development and maintenance.

    Full Body Diagnostic Scan at MedB

    Machi Mannu - Friday, January 22, 2016

    You can have a full body diagnostic scan at MedB Clinic. Unlike other scans and health checks such as X-rays, CT-scans and blood tests, the diagnostic scan at MedB is non-invasive and examines nearly all aspects of health. In addition to a full examination of the organs and systems, the scan also includes a blood test, microbiological analysis for viruses, bacteria and fungi, check for toxic contaminants, food allergies and chemical sensitivities.

     

    The report you get after the scan will include all the findings from the scan, as well as a list of the presumptive diagnosis and possible complications. The scan can detect many diseases as well as some cancers. However, it is not a cancer screening scan. Because of the insidious and unpredictable nature of cancer, it is extremely difficult to screen for cancer cells in the body. The only confirmatory test for any cancer is a biopsy.

    At MedB Clinic, we can treat most diseases detected using tested and scientifically proven natural remedies. And when we detect a disease we are unable to treat, we refer the patient for specialist care. We understand and recognize that the body is capable of recovering from any disease when supported in the right way.

     

    The human body performs many thousands of complex chemical reactions every day without our awareness or conscious help. Just as the body can digest the most complex foods into simple nutrients - a feat that cannot be produced by any man-made machine, so also can it heal itself. Studies have shown that most diseases are as a result of inflammation caused by either nutritional deficiencies, toxic overload or infections.

    When we identify the cause of a disease, it becomes possible to heal the body by treating the cause, and not treating symptoms to manage the disease.

    The Right Type of Food

    Machi Mannu - Friday, January 22, 2016

    Improving your diet is probably the most important step you can take to keep healthy. The right type of food will heal many diseases. Food provides the raw material the body needs to produce the many different chemicals essential for our well being.  If you suffer from any chronic illness, becoming aware of what goes into your mouth, will do more to improve your health than any medication.

     

    Our foods contain nutrients divided into different groups – carbohydrates, proteins, fats, oils, vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates digest into simple sugars that are necessary for producing energy while proteins break down into amino acids, the building blocks of life. Fats and Oils provide energy reserves that sustain the body in times of need. Vitamins and Minerals play the most diverse role, including acting as catalysts to speed up reactions in the body, maintaining the structure of organs and regenerating broken down organs.

     

    Your body needs all nutrient groups in a balanced and adequate proportion to stay healthy and active. When the body receives more proteins than carbohydrates, for example, it creates an imbalance that can lead to disease. Protein requires a lot of energy to process, and consuming protein rich diet will drain the body of energy and accelerate ageing. Consuming a lot of Carbs, on the other hand, will result in weight gain.

    Yes, some people will have a body more suited to one class of nutrients than another, preferring more protein to carbohydrates, or more fats to carbs, we still need to include all food groups in our diet. The key is to learn as much as you can about food and nutrition and to listen to your body to find out what it needs.

    Are You Addicted To Painkillers?

    Machi Mannu - Sunday, November 15, 2015

    We all instinctively avoid pain; however, it is essential to our survival because it communicates danger and like an early warning system, allows us time to act. Pain is the most common reason we see the doctor and is considered a symptom in medical disorders although it is treated conveniently as a disease, usually by overworked doctors, hard pressed for time and resorting to over prescribing pain killers to keep the line going.  

    Treating symptoms has created a ‘quick fix’ attitude to health, with many people believing that an end to pain also means a cure for the disease. And in healthcare, this isn’t always the case.  Our natural reaction as human beings is to seek an instant remedy when we suffer pain. Unfortunately for us, the profit-oriented pharmaceutical industry also understands this aspect of human psychology quite well.   And of course for them it’s more profitable to find an instant remedy for pain than a cure for the disease.

    Pain killers give an impression of healing but with the cause still present, the pain usually returns after a short while, requiring more painkillers, and the cycle continues.  What is worse is that the number of deaths from painkillers has risen sharply over the years mainly due to over-prescriptions. Most prescribed medications will cause severe damage to the body if taken even over a short period, but painkillers have an even deadlier edge to them. 

    Nerves transmit pain, and by nature, they become sensitized to drug stimulation over time, making them require larger doses of painkillers to produce the same amount of pain relief. Over time, this creates an addiction to painkillers, and the stronger the painkiller, the stronger the addiction.

    Even though there are thousands of brands of painkillers available in pharmacies, there are just three classes of painkillers– Paracetamol, NSAIDS (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) and opioids or narcotics. Of these classes, the most addictive are narcotics. People who take paracetamol repeatedly for on-going pain run a risk of developing a ‘staggered overdose,' a condition associated with a high risk of liver disease that may require a liver transplant.

    NSAIDs are the next line of painkillers usually prescribed when paracetamol isn’t strong enough to provide pain relief. There are three main types of NSAIDS – Ibuprofen, naproxen and COX inhibitors, and all three are sold under many different brand names. NSAIDs can cause gastric and duodenal ulcers, bleeding and perforation.

    Opioids are the strongest class of painkillers and include several brands containing tramadol, hydrocodone, morphine or combinations or their combinations. These drugs belong to the same class as heroin and cocaine, and the psychological symptoms of those taking these illegal drugs or even suffering from alcoholism, are no different from those taking opioid painkillers. Other side effects include depression, weight gain and bone and joint problems. If you are in pain, don’t just reach for painkillers; make an appointment with your doctor to find out the cause of the problem.
