    Do you dutifully bend and touch your toes for 60 seconds before you 

start a workout? 

For many, stretching and exercise go together like peanut butterand jelly – after
all, we’ve been told for decades that stretching is key forwarming up your muscles
and helping to prevent injuries.

    It turns out, though, like so many other unchallenged “truths,” that
stretching is not always all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, new research
suggests that certain types of stretching before you exercise may actually be

Reasons to Give Up Your Pre-Workout Static Stretch

    According to a recent study published in The Journal of Strength and
Conditioning Research, engaging in passive static stretching prior to
lifting weights could make you feel weaker and less stable during your

    The researchers concluded that such stretching should be avoided prior to
strength training, noting that the passive stretches may have impaired
strength because of joint instability.

    A second study, a meta-analysis of over 100 studies, likewise revealed
that pre-exercise static stretching generally hurts rather than helps your
athletic performance.

     Researchers noted:


        “ … the usage of SS [static stretching] as the sole activity during
warm-up routine should generally be avoided.”

     Static stretching, they revealed:


        Reduces muscle strength by nearly 5.5% (and more when a stretch is
held for 90 seconds or more)    

        Cuts muscle power by 2%

        Reduces explosive muscular performance by nearly 3%

American College of Sports Medicine Now Advises Against Static Stretching

    Static stretching is when you hold your muscle in a fixed position for a
prolonged period, such as 60 seconds or more. This technique has been
regarded as the gold standard for decades, but now research shows that it
actually decreases the blood flow within your tissue creating localized
ischemia (a restriction in blood supply) and lactic acid buildup. This can
potentially cause irritation or injury of local muscular, tendinous,
lymphatic, and neural tissues.

    In short, static stretching may damage your muscles and tendons, which
may be why studies show it worsens muscle performance, particularly when
the stretch is held for 60 seconds or more.

    The evidence is so clear that the American College of Sports Medicine now
advises against this form of stretching prior to your workouts. But this
isn’t to say that all forms of stretching should be avoided.

Dynamic ‘Active’ Stretching Improves Performance

    While static stretching is now going by the wayside, dynamic stretching,
an active type of stretching such as walking lunges, squats or arm circles,
is coming in to take its place. Dynamic stretching has been shown to
positively influence power, speed, agility, endurance, flexibility, and
strength performance when used as a warm-up.

    My favorite type of dynamic stretching is active isolated stretches
developed by Aaron Mattes. With Active Isolated Stretching or AIS, you
holdeach stretch for only two seconds, which works with your body's
naturalphysiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the
elasticity ofmuscle joints. This technique also allows your body to help
repair itself andprepare for daily activity.

    AIS is a protocol of specialized repetitive stretches, performed in a
specific order targeting myofascial (muscle and connective tissue) injury
andrestriction. AIS allows for the elongation of muscle and fascial tissue
without eliciting your body's protective mechanisms that would inhibit safe,
effective stretching and overall flexibility.

    I now do a daily stretching routine that stretches my neck, shoulders,
legs and toes for about 45 minutes every day. I typically multitask and do
the upper body stretches while I am listening to video or audio programs on
the Web. I do the neck stretches while I am working on my computer, and the
leg and toe stretches while I am in bed -- so it's very possible to work this
routine into even the busiest schedules.

What Exactly is Active Isolated Stretching?

    Active isolated stretching can be used for warming up for exercise,
training and most importantly to rehab from your injuries. This is key, as
nearly everyone I know gets injured while exercising at some point or
another. After injury or even after prolonged periods of inactivity your
muscles and joints lose flexibility, range of motion (ROM), strength and
general stamina.

    I had a serious hamstring tear when I first started doing Peak Fitness
exercises; I was sprinting outside and injured my left hamstring. More
precisely it was the adductor magnus right where it inserted on the sit bone
or the ischial tuberosity. I played around with it for a few years but after
consistent AIS stretching I have finally been able to resolve it.

Tips for Performing Active Isolated Stretching

    The process begins with the identification of the specific muscles and
tissues to be stretched. Sometimes this is obvious but typically it requires
the assistance of a trained therapist to help identify which muscles and
exercises are to be used in your treatment program. Next, you use very
gentlepressure and hold each stretch for only two seconds. You have to
be carefulnot to use too much pressure so as not to engage the Golgi tendon
andmyotatic stretch, which act as safety mechanisms that if engaged will
preventthe stretch from working. The keys to using AIS effectively include:

        Move the joint as far as you can in the direction of the stretch.

This is the active part of the exercise, which activates the antagonistic
muscles that inhibit the stretch. Many fail to do this and only passively
stretch the muscle -- and that simply will not work. It is the most common
mistake people make when doing AIS.

        Stretch the muscle gradually with a gentle stretch of less than one
pound of pressure toward the end point of ROM, and then hold it for two

        Do not push through the stretch; instead do multiple stretches and
with each stretch you get more ROM.

        Usually you do sets of 10 reps.

        To actually engage the stretch you can use a therapist or you can do
regular home stretching exercises.

    It is important to always return the area being stretched to the starting
position before continuing the next repetition, as this will allow the tissue
to receive blood that carries oxygen and nutrients through the movement of
your lymphatic fluid, and it will also allow waste products generated during
the stretch to be removed.

    It is also important to monitor the stretch reflex carefully, as your
tissue is stretched to the point of light irritation.

    Then after two seconds release the tension to prevent reverse contractions
of the tissues being stretched. You also want to make sure youare breathing
properly by exhaling during the stretch, as this will oxygenate
your tissue and fascia.

The Power Plate: Another Novel Form of Flexibility Training

    If you’re looking for something unique to replace your static stretches,
one of the programs I use several times a week is the Power Plate, which I
have discussed before. The Power Plate works by vibrating in three
dimensions, or three planes:

        Sagittal (front to back)

    The Power Plate moves very quickly (25 to 50 times per second) across
very small distances (one to two millimeters), so you aren't knocked off
balance, but just enough so that your muscles must accommodate. When
youstand on the vibrating Power Plate, or perform simple exercises on it,
eachmuscle in your body reacts in a continuous flow of micro-adjustments,
contracting reflexively. Just like when your leg automatically jerks after
your physician taps it with his reflex hammer, your muscles react
automatically to the Power Plate's vibrations – 25 to 50 times per second.

    Stimulating your muscles and nerves this way results in more work being
done by your body in a shorter period of time – with far greater recruitment
of your muscle fibers. When the Power Plate vibrates up and down, your
muscletone improves. Left to right and front to back movements improve
your balanceand coordination, so the net result is a dramatic improvement
in strength andpower, flexibility, balance, tone and leanness.

    It is really a very powerful way to rapidly improve flexibility for your
legs, although it may not work as well for your neck and shoulders. The key
to remember is that the old-fashioned advice to perform static stretches
prior to exercise is now outdated. You’ll be far better off using a dynamic
stretching program, such as AIS, the Power Plate or another form of active
stretching, instead.

Medicaid is Drowning Our Kids in Toxic Psychiatric Drugs!


         The Solution For Disease FREE Health...WHOLESALE.


World's #1 Publisher of Information About Alternative Cancer

Treatments...WHOLESALE...Everyone knows someone that Has or

The number of children on Medicaid taking antipsychotic drugs has
tripled in just ten years—and shockingly, many of them are under
the age of three.

Note that these are not just antidepressants, which are bad enough.
We are talking about strong antipsychotic drugs. These are so strong
that many adults stop taking them because of severe side effects.
How can a three-year-old protect himself or herself from the toxic
effects of these drugs on their undeveloped brains and bodies?

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

is launching an investigation into the over-prescription of
antipsychotics to children on Medicaid, and has already asked all
fifty states to provide more oversight of these prescriptions.
Medicaid more than doubled the amount it spent on antipsychotic
drugs between 1999 and 2008 (the last year for which data is available),
and now spends $3.8 billion on antipsychotics, more than any other
class of drugs.

In 2004, a child on Medicaid  


was four times more likely to be onantipsychotics than a child with private
insurance. And it’s notjust the older kids: of the 600,000 minors in the
Medicaid programwho were on antipsychotics in 2008, more than half were
under the age of 14.

So far, the HHS probe has found that 482 children under the age of
three were prescribed antipsychotics, and 107 children under the age
of two. Six were under a year old, and one was an infant just one
month old. This is almost unbelievable. Are we still living in the
dark ages that we would do this to a newborn?

Disturbing as this is, a spokeswoman for the Texas Health and Human
Services Commission defended the prescriptions, saying, “For infants,
the drugs aren’t being used for behavior. The infants most often have
seizures or complex health issues like heart and respiratory problems,
and these drugs can be prescribed to help with discomfort.”

Did she say “discomfort?” 

Keep in mind that common side effects for one common psychiatric
medication include a shuffling walk, drooling,rapid weight gain, and
the inability to speak. Stopping theantipsychotics often involves a wrenching
withdrawal period of nausea,vomiting, insomnia, tremors, dizziness, and
even hallucinations. It’sa terrifying list even for an adult, and even more so
for the very young children being given these drugs. Over-prescription of these
powerful drugs is a lose-lose situation for both taxpayers and thechildren
who take them.

The antipsychotics used today  


are known as second and third generationantipsychotics, and have names
 such as Abilify (which is the nation’stop-selling prescription drug), Risperdal,
 Seroquel, and Zyprexa. They replaced drugs such as Haldol and Thorazine,
 the first generation antipsychotics.

Antipsychotics were originally developed to treat psychoses such as
schizophrenia, but some now have FDA approval for the treatment of
children with bipolar disorder, as well as irritability associated with autism.

 However, antipsychotics were never actually tested on children, and
were never intended for long-term use, even in adults.

We reported two years ago about the excessive number of kids in foster
homes Because of the huge number of people on government assistance
who are on these drugs, 70% of the total spent for antipsychotics in
the US is paid by the US government—that is, taxpayers. This is nothing
less than crony capitalism in action: pharmaceutical companies donate
heavily to political campaigns, and legislators pass laws that
compensate them in spades for the amount donated. Those who pay the
real price are the poor and powerless.

Assessing any drug is difficult,  


since trials with negative results are often buried and the trial simply 
repeated. One study showed that roughly half of all drug trials for
antidepressants had positive results, and half did not. However, 97% of
the positive results were published in peer-reviewed journals, while only
8% of the negativestudies were! A doctor reviewing clinical journals could
easily cometo the conclusion that antidepressants are much more effective
than they are.

In 2012, a judge in Arkansas ordered Johnson & Johnson and a subsidiary,
Janssen Pharmaceuticals, to pay more than $1.2 billion in fines for
minimizing the dangers associated with the antipsychotic Risperdal.
Texas settled a case with Janssen for $158 million and a South Carolina
judge fined them $327 million. A Louisiana jury awarded $258 million in
damages. And they are now being sued by Kentucky for concealing the
harmful side effects of Risperdal, which include stroke, diabetes,and
weight gain.

If not antipsychotics, what do these kids need? An integrative physician
who deals with either physical or psychiatric disorders should, of
course, be your first and best resource. And it should go without
saying that all children need a secure, loving home, nutritious meals,
regular exercise, and protection from abuse and other dangers.
Importantly, that also means protection from abuse by the medical

In addition, children at risk for psychiatric problems are good
candidates for a program of omega-3 fatty acids: a study in the
Archives of General Psychiatry found that fish oil supplements beat
mental illness. The study involved eighty-one people deemed to be
at high risk for psychosis. The randomized, placebo-controlled study
provided fish oil supplements to half the study subjects for twelve
weeks; the other half received placebos. Eleven people in the placebo
group developed a psychotic disorder, but only two in the fish oil
group did.

But love, nutrition, exercise, security, and fish oil cannot be patented,
eliminating the profit incentive to supply them. By contrast,with Medicaid
 laying out $3.8 billion per year on antipsychotics for children, the
motivation to try to control a troubled child with a pill is evidently quite

As You Get Older, Growth Hormone Levels Can Affect Your Fat Deposits

    Many tend to gain weight as they approach middle age, and if you don't
stay physically active, you also start losing muscle mass around age 40.

Overall, you start burning fewer calories as your body shifts from building
muscle to storing more fat. This is in part caused by what’s known as
"somatopause" — the decline of your body's hormone production as you age,
which includes dwindling production of human growth hormone (HGH). HGH
actually starts declining rapidly after age 21, so by the time you hit your
40’s, your levels can be quite low, contributing to these stubborn fat

    The amount of HGH you secrete depends on how much lean body mass and
belly fat you have. The more belly fat you have, the less HGH your body
produces. Some resort to HGH injections to maintain youthful levels.
According to,5 HGH injections are now also
considered a “revolutionary” way to reduce cellulite. But there are
significant drawbacks to HGH injections, both biological and financial.

    As discussed above, there are at least three different ways you can
elevate your HGH levels naturally, either alone or in combination. Each of
these can very effectively boost HGH production, and when combined I have no
doubt it can rival or even surpass injections, but without any of the
associated health risks or cost:

        Intermittent fasting
        High intensity interval training (HIIT)
        Acceleration Training

Even a Mini Trampoline—or Rebounding—Can Help Improve Cellulite

    Acceleration training works by increasing the acceleration or the force
of gravity on your body. To a lesser degree, a mini trampoline will also
increase the G forces on your body and provide similar, yet less extreme,
benefits. A mini trampoline or rebounder subjects your body to gravitational
pulls ranging from zero at the top of each bounce to 2 to 3 times the force
of gravity at the bottom, depending on how high you jump. And, unlike jogging
on hard surfaces which stresses your ankles and knees, rebounding helps
protect against this stress so it’s easy on the joints.

    Some of the benefits rebounding offers include circulating oxygen and
nutrients to tissues and organs, and promoting increased muscle strength.
It’s an option you can use if the cost of a vibration platform such as the
Power Plate is prohibitive. Acceleration Training on a high-quality machine
will definitely offer more powerful benefits though, and some gyms do have
them, so it’s worth checking around.

Tying it All Together...

    Foods high in sugars and carbs, damaged fats (think trans fats) and
processed salt are all dietary contributors to cellulite, so addressing your
diet should be your first step. My optimized Nutrition Plan can help you do
that with the least amount of fuss as it takes you step by step through the
changes, from beginners to advanced.

    It’s important to realize that dietary carbohydrates, especially
fructose, are the primary source of a substance called glycerol-3-phosphate
(g-3-p), which actually causes fat to become fixed in fat tissue. High carb
intake also raises your insulin levels, which prevents fat from being
released, so sugars and grains are really at the root of stubborn fat

    In short, you’ll want to avoid processed foods, as they are loaded with
fructose and highly processed fats and salt. Keep in mind that for every gram
of excess sodium chloride your body has to neutralize, it uses up 23 grams of
cellular water. Hence, eating too much common processed salt will cause fluid
to accumulate in your tissues, which can also contribute to unsightly

    Instead, focus your diet on whole, ideally organic and locally grown
foods, healthful fats such as butter, eggs, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil
and nuts, and grass-fed or pastured animal protein. If you want to add salt,
make sure to use unprocessed natural salt, such as Himalayan salt, which
contains about 86 different essential minerals and will not cause the same
detrimental health effects as processed salt—especially if you’re eating a
diet high in vegetables, as this will ensure a healthy sodium to potassium

    Eating this way will help you transition from being a sugar burner to
burning fat as your primary fuel, which is key for lasting weight loss and
optimal health. However, do not attempt fasting if your diet still consists
mainly of processed foods as proper nutrition becomes even more important at
that stage. Next, revise your exercise regimen to include some high intensity
interval exercises, and consider Acceleration Training to further boost
results—especially if you want to tackle cellulite.

The Most Effective Strategies for Eliminating Cellulite



         The Solution For Disease FREE Health...WHOLESALE.


World's #1 Publisher of Information About Alternative Cancer

Treatments...WHOLESALE...Everyone knows someone that Has or

    Cellulite, those pockets of fat that tend to collect on buttocks, 

thighsand upper arms, are a cause of embarrassment for many. The dimpling,
“orangepeel” effect occurs when fat cells push against the surrounding
subcutaneous  connective tissue in your skin. If your lymph circulation
becomes sluggish, toxins accumulate in these fat cells.

    Liposuction, creams and wraps only temporarily reduce the appearance of
cellulite. Without continual treatment, cellulite just reappears...So what, if
anything, might actually work to reduce cellulite?

    The featured article in The Guardian1 suggests body brushing. Simply give
yourself a vigorous scrub-down with a dry body brush before you get into the
shower, and then apply a good moisturizer afterward. (I recommend plain
coconut oil opposed to chemical-laden creams). According to the writer, this
simple technique “really did, honest-to-God, make a remarkable difference in
just a few weeks.”

    There’s certainly nothing wrong with this strategy; body brushing can
help improve circulation and lymph flow, which are important elements for
cellulite elimination. The downside is having to manually scrub yourself in
areas that can be hard or uncomfortable to reach. Three strategies that I
believe might be far more effective, in order of importance, are as follows,
and in the following sections I’ll explain why:

        Intermittent fasting
        Whole body vibration training, a.k.a. Acceleration Training
        Rebound exercise

Intermittent Fasting Shifts Your Body from Burning Sugar to Burning Fat

    In a nutshell, the answer to eliminating cellulite is to shift your body
from burning sugar to efficiently burning fat for fuel, in order to get rid
of excess fat deposits. Intermittent fasting is one of the most powerful
interventions I know of to move your body into fat burning mode.

    One of the mechanisms that makes fasting so effective for fat loss is the
fact that it provokes the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH), which
is afat-burning hormone. Fasting also increases catecholamines, which
increasesresting energy expenditure while decreasing insulin levels, which
allowsstored fat to be burned for fuel.

    Together, these and other factors will turn you into an effective fat-

burning machine.

    The type of fast you choose appears to be less important, so pick
whichever one fits your lifestyle, schedule, and temperament the best. For
variations, see this previous article on intermittent fasting. I have been
experimenting with different types of scheduled eating in my own life for the
past three years, and my preference is to simply skip breakfast and restrict
my eating to a 6-7 hour window each day.

    For this version of intermittent fasting to be effective, you need torestrict
your eating to a window of maximum eight hours each day. This means
eating only between the hours of 11am until 7pm, as an example. Essentially,
this equates to simply skipping breakfast and making lunch your first meal of
the day instead.

    This is doable and convenient for most people, but you can restrict iteven
further — down to six, four, or even two hours, if you want, but you can
still reap many of these rewards by limiting your eating to a window of about
eight hours.

    In the 6-8 hours that you do eat, you want to have healthy protein,minimize
your carbs like pasta and bread and potatoes and exchange them for
healthful fats like butter, eggs, avocado, coconut oil, olive oil and nuts.

(The type of fats the media and “experts" tell you to avoid.)

    This will help shift your body from sugar-burning mode to fat-burning
mode. Remember it takes a few weeks to make the transition. You have to
do itgradually, but once you succeed and switch to fat burning mode, you
willeasily be able to fast for 18 hours and not feel hungry. Your cravings for
sugar will magically disappear and it will be much easier to achieve your
ideal weight.

How Acceleration Training Can Help Beat Cellulite

    Next, reconsider how you exercise. One form of exercise that provides
many of the same health benefits as intermittent fasting is high intensity
interval training (HIIT). Doing these kinds of Peak Fitness exercises while
fasted (i.e. exercise before you break your fast) will further boost the
effects. One of the ways HIIT can be particularly helpful for combating
cellulite is that it significantly boosts your levels of human growth hormone
(HGH) which, as mentioned earlier, is a fat-burning hormone.

    But another form of exercise that is particularly useful for combating
cellulite in particular is Acceleration Training, in which you perform
exercises on a vibrating platform such as the Power Plate.

    Acceleration Training improves your lymph circulation, helping break
downcellulite from the inside out. The vibrations cause thousands of muscle
contractions that pump your lymphatic fluid out of problem areas, reducing
fluid congestion in your tissues. This helps to flush out toxins and ease the
load on your immune system. This mechanism has been scientifically shown
toactually help rid your body of excess pounds and unsightly cellulite.

    In a 2004 German study,2 Acceleration Training alone reduced cellulite on
subjects' thighs and buttocks by nearly 26 percent. When cardio exercises
were added to Vibration Training, cellulite dropped even more; just over 32
percent. Other research confirms its benefits for sustained fat loss. For
example, one animal study3 showed that Acceleration training caused a drop
inthe creation of new fat cells, and a 2010 study4 on humans found that:

        Those using Acceleration Training in addition to a low calorie diet
lost twice as much visceral fat after six months compared to those who
followed a low calorie diet with cardio and weight training.

        The decrease in visceral fat remained at the same level in the
vibration group after 12 months, while the diet and fitness groups returned
to their normal baseline values after 12 months. The researchers suggested
that the maintenance of visceral fat loss in the Acceleration Training group
might be related to hormonal changes—specifically, increased production of
human growth hormone (HGH).

Asthma & Allergies...

Sublingual Immunotherapy for Asthma & Allergies

        “Desensitizing a person to allergies usually involves a series of injections of small amounts of allergens, but a large review of studies has found that putting allergens under the tongue in a water solution might work just as well,” the New York Times6 recently reported.

    A meta-analysis of 63 randomized controlled trials, involving more than 5,130 patients between the ages of four and 74, found strong evidence that sublingual immunotherapy improved asthma symptoms caused by grass, tree pollen, dust mites, ragweed and other substances. The treatment produced a greater than 40 percent improvement in symptoms compared to a placebo, and led to a significant reduction in the use of asthma medicines. Interestingly, Provocation Neutralization technique, described above, has also utilized sublingual allergy treatments for many decades.

    The review, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association,7 also found moderate evidence that the oral treatment reduced runny nose and eye inflammation. Local reactions were common, but no life-threatening side effects, such as anaphylaxis, were reported. According to Dr. Daniel Moore,8 the allergy drops used for sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) are administered daily, or several times per week, over a period of years.

        “The immune system of the gastrointestinal tract tends to 'tolerate' foreign substances, meaning that it does not respond in an over-active way to swallowed material,” he explains. “...When SLIT is administered into the gastrointestinal tract [via your mouth], the immune system tolerates the allergen, instead of the over-reactivity of the immune system, as with allergic disease. This results in less allergy symptoms when the body is exposed to the allergy source, such as airborne pollen or pet dander... SLIT appears to be effective in the treatment of allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis and, to a lesser degree, allergic asthma.”

Additional Safe and Effective Strategies to Treat Allergies and Asthma

    As already mentioned, addressing your diet and optimizing both your gut health and vitamin D levels should be at the top of your list if you’re suffering from allergies and/or asthma. Here are a few other basic strategies that can help treat the root of the problem as well.

        Increase your intake of animal-based omega-3 fats – I can't emphasize enough the importance of getting sufficient amounts of high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats in your diet. The fats DHA and EPA found in fish oil and krill oil are potent anti-inflammatories.

        According to Mother Earth News,9 a German study published in the journal Allergy found people who have diets rich in of omega-3 fatty acids suffer from fewer allergy symptoms. A second study10 in Sweden found that children who regularly ate fish prior to age one had much lower allergies by age four. My favorite sources of omega-3 fatty acids are grass fed meat and eggs, and krill oil. (Fish has become too contaminated to rely on as a staple.)
        Reduce your intake of omega-6 fats – In addition to adding omega-3 fats to your diet, you also want to reduce the amount of omega-6 fats you consume because the ratio between these two fats is very important. If you eat processed foods daily, the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fats will become distorted, which can cause the type of inflammation that leads to asthma.

        Fermented vegetables and/or probiotics: In a 2008 study, researchers discovered that people who took probiotics throughout allergy season had lower levels of an antibody that triggered allergy symptoms. They also had higher levels of a different antibody (IgG), thought to play a protective role against allergic reactions. Other researchers found evidence that giving probiotics to newborns and mothers-to-be may help prevent childhood allergies.
        Avoid pasteurized milk products, which are notorious for increasing phlegm and making asthma worse.
        Get regular exercise – Exercise (especially out in fresh air if you're an asthmatic) is actually crucial, as it helps to moderate insulin levels.

    Below are several other foods and herbs you might want to try:

        Hot peppers: Hot chili peppers, horseradish, and hot mustards work as natural decongestants. In fact, a nasal spray containing capsaicin (derived from hot peppers) significantly reduced nasal allergy symptoms in a 2009 study.

        Quercetin: Quercetin is an antioxidant that belongs to a class of water-soluble plant substances called flavonoids. Although research is sketchy, many believe quercetin-rich foods (such as apples, berries, red grapes, red onions, capers and black tea) prevent histamine release—so they are “natural antihistamines.” Quercetin is also available in supplement form—a typical dose for hay fever is between 200 and 400 mg per day.

        Butterbur (Petasites hybridus): Another natural antihistamine, this herb has been used since ancient times to treat a variety of conditions. As far back as the 17th century, butterbur was used to treat coughs, asthma, and skin wounds. Researchers have since identified the compounds in butterbur that help reduce symptoms in asthma by inhibiting leukotrienes and histamines, which are responsible for symptom aggravation in asthma.11 In a German study,12 40 percent of patients taking butterbur root extract were able to reduce their intake of traditional asthma medications. A British study found butterbur as effective as the drug Zyrtec.

        A word of caution is needed, however. Butterbur is a member of the ragweed family, so if you are allergic to ragweed, marigold, daisy, or chrysanthemum, you should not use butterbur. Also, the RAW herb should not be used because it contains substances called pyrrolizidine alkaloids that can be toxic to the liver and kidneys and may cause cancer. Commercial butterbur products have had a lot of these alkaloids removed.

        Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis): Goldenseal may be helpful for seasonal allergies. Laboratory studies suggest that berberine, the active ingredient in goldenseal, has antibacterial and immune-enhancing properties.

        Eucalyptus oil: This pure essential oil can be healing to mucus membranes. You can apply a drop on a cotton ball and sniff it several times a day, add a few drops to water (or to a nebulizer, if you own one) for a steam treatment, or use a few drops in your bath water.

There is Hope if You Suffer From Allergies

    If you’re one of the tens of millions of allergy sufferers in the US, know there is plenty you can do besides lining the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry. Eating a wholesome diet based on unprocessed, ideally organic and/or locally grown foods, including fermented foods, along with optimizing your vitamin D levels and correcting your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio, will form the foundation upon which your immune system can function in an optimal manner.

    For short-term relief of symptoms, you could give acupuncture a try, and irrigate your sinuses with a neti pot. There are also a number of foods and herbs you can try to alleviate symptoms, which are listed above. For more long-term relief, you may want to consider provocation neutralization treatment, or sublingual allergy drops, which work just as well as inhalers.

Alternative Allergy Treatments that Can Work

    A recent ABC News report took 10 common “myths and old wives' tales” to allergists to get feedback on what works and what doesn’t. Included in their list were the following. For the remaining, please see the original article. In the following sections, I’ll address a number of other drug-free alternatives:

        Eating locally-produced honey: 

According to ABC News, the feedback was mostly negative on this strategy. But they do acknowledge the positive results gleaned in a 2011 study, which found that patients diagnosed with birch pollen allergy found significant relief when they consumed birch pollen honey daily from November to March. During birch pollen season, compared to the control group, the patients using honey experienced a 60 percent reduction in symptoms; twice as many asymptomatic days; 70 percent fewer days with severe symptoms, and 50 percent decrease in usage of antihistamines.

        While I believe there's truth to the anecdotal claims that local honey can help reduce symptoms of asthma, it's important to be aware that honey itself can also trigger in some cases severe allergic reactions, including anaphylactic shock. So clearly you should not attempt to use honey if you've ever experienced an adverse reaction to honey in the past. Also be careful and use it sparingly in the beginning until you've confirmed that you can tolerate it. Another important point to remember is that honey is high in fructose, which, in excessive amounts, can exacerbate pre-existing insulin resistance and wreak havoc on your body.

        Flushing your nasal cavity with a neti pot: 

This strategy is widely recommended, even by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology. Irrigating your sinuses will help flush out pollen and other irritants, helping you breathe a little easier.


Perhaps surprisingly to a lot of people, acupuncture has been shown to offer effective relief from allergy symptoms. A study published earlier this year found that those who went for weekly acupuncture treatments had significantly fewer breathing problems compared to those who did not receive acupuncture. However, the effect only lasted as long as they maintained their treatments. Still, this could be a viable option for seasonal allergy sufferers willing to get needled once a week while pollen counts are at their worst.

        Eating “right: 

Here, the allergists claimed the findings were inconclusive, but I think there’s a lot of wiggle-room when you ask conventionally trained doctors and researchers to define what the “right” diet is. Most are simply clueless about using nutrition for optimal health. For example, genetically engineered (GE) foods, which are pervasive in the American diet, have been shown to cause food allergies. Ditto for various food additives. Recent research has also found that junk food increases a child’s risk of asthma and allergies, so certainly, avoiding such foods can, at the very least, reduce your risk.

   To me, addressing your diet if you have allergies is a no-brainer.

        An estimated 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut, so supporting your digestive health is essential to also supporting your immune system, which is your primary defense system against ALL disease. Processed food, GE ingredients and synthetic additives all decimate the beneficial bacteria in your gut, thereby having a negative effect on your immune system. Ideally, you’ll want to avoid processed foods, focusing on organic, locally-grown foods instead (both to optimize your nutrition and avoid pesticides), and include fermented foods in your diet to optimize your gut flora, or use a high-quality probiotics supplement.

        Additionally, as it pertains to your diet: 

about one-third of seasonal allergy sufferers have something called "oral allergy syndrome,"4 in which your immune system is triggered by proteins in some foods that are molecularly similar to pollen. Your immune system looks at the protein molecule and says, "Close enough!" and attacks it. If you are allergic to ragweed, for example, you may have cross-sensitivity to melons, bananas, tomatoes, zucchini, sunflower seeds, dandelions, chamomile, and Echinacea. If you have a grass allergy, you may also react to peaches, celery, tomatoes, melons and oranges. If this applies to you, you’ll want to avoid such foods.

The MOST Important Allergy 'Treatment' You Need to Pay Attention to:

    While I believe you certainly need to address your diet and could try any of the alternative strategies listed above, if you have asthma, optimizing your vitamin D levels is absolutely crucial. In fact, research suggests that vitamin D deficiency may be a primary underlying cause of asthma. This means that many are needlessly suffering with a potentially life threatening ailment, since vitamin D deficiency is easily remedied.

    Ideally, you'll want to get your vitamin D from safe sun exposure. Beware that using sunscreen when outdoors effectively shields your skin from making any vitamin D. Another alternative is using a safe tanning bed, or if neither of those options are available, an oral vitamin D3 supplement. If you opt for a vitamin D supplement you also need to boost your vitamin K2. For more information on this, please see this previous article.

    Whichever way you go, make sure to check your vitamin D levels to make sure you’re within the therapeutic levels of 50-70 ng/ml. If you get your levels to about 60 ng/ml there's a strong likelihood -- especially if you combine it with exercise and balancing out your omega-3 and omega-6 fats as described below -- that you will not experience asthma anymore.

Provocation Neutralization Allergy Treatment.

    Addressing allergies takes a multi-faceted approach that involves optimizing your diet, intestinal health, vitamin D levels, and avoiding potential triggers. Typically, allergy sufferers tend to arm themselves with a variety of antihistamine pills, nose sprays and eye drops in anticipation of allergy season. But these drug treatments come with their own set of side effects, and relief is short lived. And it's been my experience that conventional allergy testing, whether done through the blood or skin, works for only 20 to 30 percent of patients. It is also quite inconvenient, as you need to go to the doctor's office every week for months or perhaps years, and it can take several years to be effective.

    Provocation neutralization (PN) allergy testing and treatment offers many allergy sufferers permanent relief without adverse side effects. The success rate for this approach is about 80 to 90 percent, and you can receive the treatment at home. I offered this effective treatment for many years in my office.

    The provocation refers to "provoking a change" and neutralization refers to "neutralizing the reaction caused by provocation." During provocation-neutralization, a small amount of allergen is injected under your skin to produce a small bump called a "wheal" on the top layers of your skin, and then it is monitored for a reaction. If you have a positive reaction, such as fatigue, headache, or a growth in the size of the wheal, then the allergen is neutralized with diluted injections or with drops that go in your mouth of the same allergen. If you are interested in pursuing PN, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine5 (AAEM) has a list of physicians and offices that are trained in this highly effective and recommended technique.

How to Address Allergies and Asthma Symptoms



         The Solution For Disease FREE Health...WHOLESALE.


World's #1 Publisher of Information About Alternative Cancer Treatments...WHOLESALE...Everyone knows someone that Has or

            New - Reverse Your Diabetes Today


    Allergies affect an estimated 25 million Americans, 

and according to the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, we’re looking at one of the worst allergy seasons in a long time, thanks to a number of climactic factors.

    The Asthma and Allergy Foundation's annual list of the worst cities for those with spring allergies (based on tree pollen counts) include the following five:

        Jackson, Mississippi
        Knoxville, Tennessee
        Chattanooga, Tennessee
        McAllen, Texas
        Louisville, Kentucky

    Airborne pollen is the most common cause of seasonal allergies, also known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis. Early arrival after a mild winter has spawned high levels of pollen, and means allergy season will linger weeks longer. Both 2011 and 2012 reported record-breaking pollen numbers, and this season will likely break those records.

    Needless to say, sales of allergy medications of all kinds are booming. This includes antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays and allergy shots—many of which can cause significant side effects.

    According to the featured article in Forbes, 

the US market for allergy drugs is projected to hit or exceed $14.7 billion by 2015:

        “The companies named to benefit most include Schering-Plough, Novartis, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (Vicks), Meda Pharmaceuticals, Collegium Pharmaceutical, McNeil Consumer Healthcare, and others, including companies that make alternative remedies as well.”

    One of the better alternatives is sublingual allergy drops, which have been shown to work just as well as inhalers. Sublingual immunotherapy has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but is widely used in Europe, and some American doctors prescribe it off label.

    There are also a number of other alternatives, including provocation neutralization treatment. The success rate for this approach to treating allergies is about 80 to 90 percent, and you can receive the treatment at home.

How and Why Do Allergies Develop?

    Allergies are your body's reaction to allergens (particles your body considers foreign), a sign that your immune system is working overtime. The first time your body encounters an allergen, your plasma cells release IgE (immunoglobulin E), an antibody specific to that allergen. IgE attaches to the surface of your mast cells.

    Mast cells are found in great numbers in your surface tissues (i.e., those with close proximity to the external environment, such as in your skin and in the mucous membranes of your nose), where they help mediate inflammatory responses. Mast cells release a number of important chemical mediators, one of which is histamine.

    So, the second time your body encounters a particular allergen, within a few minutes, your mast cells become activated and release a powerful cocktail of histamine, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins, which trigger the entire cascade of symptoms you associate with allergies: sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, hacking cough, itchy eyes, etc.

    Histamine can cause your airways to constrict, like with asthma, or cause blood vessels to become more permeable, leading to fluid leakage or hives. Leukotrienes cause hypersecretion of mucus, which you commonly experience as a runny nose or increased phlegm.

    Pollen is an extremely common mast cell activator, but other agents can trigger these processes as well. Mold spores, dust, airborne contaminants, dust mites, pet dander, cockroaches, environmental chemicals, cleaning products, personal care products and foods can all cause allergic reactions. Every person is different in what he or she reacts to. And, just because you haven't reacted to something in the past doesn't mean you won't react to it in the future—you can become sensitized at any point in time.

Allergies May Also Be Due to Leaky Gut Syndrome.

    Leaky gut is a condition that occurs due to the development of gaps between the cells (enterocytes) that make up the membrane lining your intestinal wall.  These tiny gaps allow substances such as undigested food, bacteria and metabolic wastes that should be confined to your digestive tract to escape into your bloodstream -- hence the term leaky gut syndrome. Once the integrity of your intestinal lining is compromised, and there is a flow of toxic substances "leaking out" into your bloodstream, your body experiences significant increases in inflammation.

    Besides being associated with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's and ulcerative colitis, or celiac disease, leaky gut can also be a contributing factor to allergies.

    According to a growing number of experts, including Dr. Loren Cordain, a professor at Colorado State University and an expert on Paleolithic lifestyles, humans are NOT designed to eat grains, and doing so may actually be damaging to your gut. The problem isn't only that there are superior sources of nutrients; grains actually contain anti-nutrients that may damage your gut. Cracks in your intestinal wall can then allow undigested proteins to enter your blood stream. These large complex substances are antigenic and allergenic, meaning they stimulate your immune system to produce antibodies against them. This is what sets the stage for the occurrence of allergies and other autoimmune disorders.

    “Healing and sealing” your gut has been shown to help alleviate allergy symptoms.The key lies in altering your diet to eliminate the offending foods, such as grains and processed foods, and introduce healthier ones that will support a proper balance of bacteria in your gut. To restore gut health, and prevent leaky gut from occurring, eating traditionally fermented foods is essential.
