Dr. Bill discusses the benefits of biofeedback, cinnamon, and echinacea, as well as getting into how to become a traditional naturopath.

PS: I “mis-remembered” an herb that I was “searching for” that benefits diabetics… I said Gotu Kola when I was really trying to remember Gymnema Sylvestre. Gotu Kola is actually an herb that fortifies the immune system and strengthens the adrenal system. It has been used to purify the blood and promotes healthy skin. It is a benefit to restful sleep and can be used to benefit skin inflammations, as a treatment for high blood pressure. Gotu kola has been referred to as “food for the brain.” It is an oriental herb that has demonstrated mild tranquilizing, anti-anxiety and anti-stress effects, as well as improving mental functions such as concentration and memory. It has a calming effect on the body and is chiefly used to support the central nervous system. These beneficial qualities make Gotu kola an excellent herb for children with A.D.D. because it has a stimulating effect on the brain that increases one’s ability to focus while having a soothing and relaxing effect on an overactive nervous system. So, sorry for the confusion!

A drop in breast cancer cases may be due to women eschewing Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), experts say. In the drive to develop expensive pharmaceutical drugs that can generate huge revenues for drug companies, the big drug firms are looking more and more at natural remedies that work well. The questions is, when they “steal away” these natural substances by patenting the active element, will this cut into low cost, natural health practices? In a discovery that has stunned even those behind it, scientists at a Toronto hospital say they have proof the body’s nervous system helps trigger diabetes, opening the door to a potential near-cure of the disease that affects millions! There is new evidence supporting the idea that Vitamin D helps prevent multiple sclerosis! Adding plenty of olive oil to a diet could help protect against cell damage that can lead to cancer, experts say.

Folic acid supplements lower the risk of heart diseases and strokes. Cranberries are rich in antioxidants, which can protect cells from free radicals – unstable molecules that damage the cells of animals as they age. Research has also found that cranberry juice can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol levels and raise levels of HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood; cranberries can slow tumor growth or prevent them altogether! The Journal of the American Medical Association says that there is a total of 225,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes. “Iatrogenic” is defined as induced in a patient by a physician’s activity, manner, or therapy. Natural health nutrition and supplementation has been shown to be beneficial with regard to treating depression. Ginkgo Biloba works just as well as synthetic dementia drugs!

Thanks for listening to the Traditional Naturopath Podcast! Hoffman-La Roche Inc. issued a warning for its “bird flu” drug Tamiflu, stating patients using the drug must be closely monitored in case they develop psychiatric problems such as delirium and suicidal tendencies. Build up the immune system to fight disease! Milk Thistle, Silybum marianum (silymarin) is known to have antioxidant properties and research published this week in Phytotherapy Research shows that this extract can help people significantly lower the amount of sugar bound to hemoglobin in blood, as well as reducing fasting blood sugar levels. Resveratrol is an ingredient in red wine that researchers say doubles the physical endurance of mice in a new study, while protecting them against diabetes and obesity! Turmeric significantly inhibits joint destruction due to arthritis, and inhibits NF-kappaB, a protein that controls the gene expression of substances that produce an inflammatory response.

A short report on my Practical Herbology 102 class through CNHP this past weekend. Why the podcast was delayed. Equipment problems nixed the recording of interviews I had planned at the course. The problem of Bastyr University and its cohorts trying to “hijack” the “ND” designation and be the only approved school for Naturopathy by influencing local state legislatures to enact ND registration and licensure. It has become illegal in South Carolina to be a Traditional Naturopath without this organization “stamp” of approval. My own experience and background as a graduate of Trinity School of Natural Health and other organizations. Is one school’s Bachelors degree, for instance, any less “real” than another school’s? There are organizations that are working to help you maintain your heath freedoms… check them out! Lack of Vitamin D can be a “marker” for atherosclerosis. Vitamin D may help curb breast cancer progression, suggests a small study published ahead of print in the Journal of Clinical Pathology. Perrigo Co., the nation’s largest maker of store-brand drugs for retailers such as CVS, Safeway and Food Lion, is recalling 11 million bottles of the painkiller acetaminophen after finding small metal particles in 200 caplets. YOU need to check your medicine cabinet and see if you need to throw out your acetaminophen. If they are having a particularly hard time nailing down a diagnosis, sometimes doctors use Google, according to an Australian study. The Google Scholar project. The difference between Allopathic and Naturopathic approaches in terms of “labeling” a disease as opposed to reinforcing the healthy immune system.

I appreciate your e-mails and questions on the Podcast! I will be getting back to those of you that wrote! Information on the web site and what interests me in the health news. When is an old drug worth $4,200.00 PER DOSE? This drug is a terrible travesty of justice! And they are aiming it at people that are desperate! And the side effects are terrible! What is the motivation? A cure, no! Money! A discussion of “SAD” (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and “free mental screening clinics” that are in place to sell drugs! Vitamin D and it’s relation to osteoporosis. SAD is “sunlight deficiency!” Drug commercials on TV. “Black tea” may reduce stress… an “ol’ wive’s tale” that is true! Avoid pure, refined sugar since it is a metabolic poison! “Black tea” reduces cortisol. Scientists call experience… “anecdotal evidence.” Aloe Vera as an herbal remedy to heal burns. And, herbal remedies avoid chemical and drug side effects. Chemotherapy retards brain function for ten years or longer! Chemotherapy kills cells… even good cells. DO the “benefits” outweigh the risks?” I think not! Mental fog and confusion after chemo is not due to emotional issues, but is due to chemo effecting the frontal lobe of the brain. There are natural, effective alternatives to chemotherapy. There are benefits to allopathic medicine for “heroic” medical intervention, like after an accident. Naturopathic treatment strengthens your immune system and helps you remain healthy. That’s the difference between an allopathic and naturopathic approach. Write me and I will help you locate a naturopath in YOUR area! YOU are the one MOST responsible for YOUR personal health!

A new type of bandage made from chitosan from shellfish. Chitosan was originally used as a “fat absorber” to lose weight. Why that may not be the right approach for all! Pecans (which contain Vitamin E) may be beneficial in reducing blood oxidation. Why antioxidants are of benefit. Chemical “air fresheners” don’t “freshen the air” they reduce lung function. The difference between an allopathic and a naturopathic view of disease.

Show Notes:
A high sugar, low fiber diet in “Western Society” is making our children obese. Our “fast food” society is generating a “fat food” society! Calorie intake and expenditure normally are regulated by leptin. When the hormone, leptin, is functioning properly it increases physical activity, decreases appetite, and increases feelings of well-being. Conversely, when leptin is suppressed, feelings of well-being and activity decrease and appetite increases, a state called “leptin resistance.” Drinking fruit and vegetable juices can decrease your susceptibility to Alzheimer’s Disease. Polyphenols… chemicals available in many natural foods… might disrupt the processes, and even lend some protection to Alzheimer’s by neutralising the effect of damaging compounds called free radicals. Fruit and vegetable juices are particularly rich in polyphenols! Anger reduces both lung function and adversely effects the immune system. Emotional therapies can help many physiological conditions! Are drug companies “pushing drugs”… what is their actual motivation in producing drugs?

Intro – I’ve been on vacation which is why the Blog has languished a bit this week! An introduction to the web site and podcast’s purpose… why we are here! What is Naturopathy and how does it compare to Allopathic Medicine? Why a “long term” approach to lifestyle change can be a benefit compared to treating symptoms.

Wow! CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) may be as effective against Diabetes as drugs according to research. “Compared to the synthetic drugs used to treated this disease, CLA does not cause weight gain and may in fact decrease overall body fat,” says Vanden Heuvel, who has been granted a patent on the new method of treating diabetes with CLA. So… a natural approach is as effective as a synthetic drug… and has GOOD side effects!

How to use the Traditional Naturopath website. Tips from the website that will benefit you. How to subscribe to our podcast automatically! Prediabetes may raise the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. More reasons to avoid processed sugar and corn syrup in your diet. Sugar can “feed” cancer! Exposure to chlorine in Indoor Pools may lead to Asthma. Concentrated chlorine can lead to lung damage. Vitamin D increases your body’s production of naturally occurring antibiotics, called antimicrobial peptides, that are produced throughout the body the cell walls of viruses and bacteria, including tuberculosis. Medication errors injure 1.5 Million Americans per year! YOU need to take responsibility for what you are taking personally. The story of Abraham Cherrix and how the state is FORCING him to take chemotherapy treatments! This is an affront to the right of personal healthcare choices!

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship… To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic… The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom.”

Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration of Independence
