What exactly is the ‪‎Epigenetic‬ Bio-Resonance Hair Follicle Test? This unique hair test is a ROADMAP of what has been happening in your body for the last few months. You will learn YOUR deficiencies in vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants. You will also learn if you have any hidden toxins in the form of bacteria, virus, mold, or fungus, or even heavy metals or chemicals. All from a few strands of hair!

Can Dementia and Alzheimer’s Be Reversed?

A very informative video was posted of an interview Dr. Mark Hyman did at the Cleveland Clinic.  This was such an incredible interview, I wanted to take notes and supply you with the “Cliff Notes” version of this interview, plus a few of my own thoughts sprinkled in.
‪Dementia‬ and ‪Alzheimers‬, could these conditions be REVERSED? How interesting is this concept? THIS is why I have studied ‪FunctionalMedicine‬ for 6 years and have left my “traditional” thinking that there is a medicine for everything. WHAT IF the medicine is the CAUSE of the condition? Dementia and Alzheimers could have several root causes. What should we consider?
1. Are you on a STATIN drug for cholesterol? These meds suppress cholesterol and block the ability of your body to making this critical hormone that is the precursor to ALL of your sex hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. Your BRAIN is 60% FAT, therefore, requires good quality fats to work more effectively. Many studies have shown STATIN drugs are directly linked to dementia.
2. Do you have Leaky Gut and Digestive Issues? A malfunctioning gut will deny your brain of critical nutrients, including Vitamin D, and other fat soluble vitamins like Vitamins A, E, and K, as well as water soluble vitamins like Vitamin B12 and all the B Complex Vitamins. All of these nutrients are needed for brain functioning.
3. Do you, or have you, taken a PPI drug like Nexium, Prilosec, Aciphex, etc? These meds stop the production of stomach acid causing a myriad of health issues from bad bacterial overgrowth to the inability to digest dietary proteins and extreme constipation causing you to reabsorb toxins from your food.
4. Have you been exposed to MOLD or mycotoxins? Mold poisoning (which I know firsthand since I had this and reversed it in myself) can cause many symptoms in your body, one major side effect is BRAIN FOG which can look like Dementia!
5. Do you have MERCURY AMALGAMS in your mouth? It has been found in several studies that mercury can leach into your system from amalgams that have been in your mouth for 20-30 years! NEVER let a dentist put these in your mouth… as they are still putting this very toxic heavy metal in fillings today because they are cheap!!!
6. Do you eat a lot of sugar? Dietary factors such as pre diabetes and diabetes can cause dementia, and the medications for diabetes are directly linked to dementia. Adopting a ketogenic diet and eliminating all sources of refined sugar are key to helping with control of erratic blood sugar levels and insulin and leptin resistance.
These are just a few of the top level discussions that are heard during this video. THIS is the approach I take when interviewing my clients in consultations. Epigenetic Hair Testing can help identify heavy metal toxicity, and even point to nutrient deficiencies and potential leaky gut issues. A thorough medication history and medication review by an Integrative Pharmacist is recommended to pinpoint YOUR root cause.

The Face of Pure EVIL… He Hiked Life-Saving Drug Price 5000%

Posted by Dr. Lori Arnold

 

THIS is the face of PURE EVIL. Martin Shkreli is a former pharmaceutical executive who enraged the public when he raised the price of Daraprim, a life-saving drug, by 5,000%!!!  Watch as he pleads the fifth amendment numerous times in response to questions from members of the House Oversight Committee in February before being ejected and escorted out of the hearing. Shkreli, formerly a hedge fund manager, was being investigated for fraud.

 

Martin Shkreli hiked up the price of his company’s drug so high that the people who needed it the most, as a life-saving measure, could not afford this drug. Look at his face and see the lack of remorse and not an ounce of compassion as he was asked “WHY?” he did it. There is absolutely no doubt in my heart WHY I chose to leave the comforts of a pharma-supported paycheck to stand on my own two feet to find ways for my clients to teach their bodies “to heal from within”. There is a better way folks. I am a ‪pharmacist‬, and have little faith in the direction we are headed with ‪the greed and propaganda of some Big Pharma and the dismal future they are creating for our country‬.
