Freeze Dried Aloe Vera Gel Arrives!

Aloe Vera Gel Caps 90sHey gang! I’m happy to say that we now have a solid supplier of Freeze-dried aloe vera gel capsules. For many years I’ve been promoting the use of Aloe Gel from Lily of the Desert, however, many of you expressed concern that they use carageenan in the formula. I took those comments seriously and it took me almost a year to find the perfect supplier of Aloe Gel in the freeze-dried form.

The succulent leaf of the aloe vera plant is one of nature’s most wonderful gifts. Recognized throughout history for a multitude of uses, the plant’s fullest capacities are only just now being widely developed for today’s health-conscious consumer. Our aloe vera product is formulated specifically to maximize the benefits of the whole leaf and enhance products for internal and topical uses.

Our aloe vera products have the anthraquinones removed (the latex chemicals in the aloe plant that cause diarrhea). Every negative side effect of aloe vera mentioned in the medical literature is related to these anthraquinones. Because we filter them out, our aloe vera products can be taken long term without negative side effects.

Our Aloe Vera supplements use vegetarian/vegan capsules made from 100% natural, plant-derived materials. The capsules are Kosher certified, gluten free, preservative free, starch free, non-GMO, with no chemical modification.

Dandelion Root May Kill Cancer

Dandelion_RootResearch conducted at the University of Windsor, Canada, indicates that results can give new hope to cancer patients. Dandelion tea was found to act upon cancer cells in a way that stimulates apoptosis (cancer cell death) within 48 hours. No healthy cells in the body are affected. The poor old dandelion flower is often neglected and considered to be weed. Dandelion root, however, has many healing properties! When used for its health benefits, the dandelion root must be from a clean and pure source.

Some of you might remember your grandmothers using prepared dandelion potions for a range of health issues. They knew that dandelion contains many curative substances, but what they did not know for sure was the fact that dandelion root may help cancer patients.

Scientists, however, now know that the dandelion root of this plant appears to be “better” than chemotherapy because it “kills” all the cancerous cells.

In addition dandelion root has diuretic properties, it stimulates the secretion of the bile, cleanses the liver, helps with allergies and reduces cholesterol. Dandelion contains very important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin C, iron, calcium, potassium, folic acid and magnesium.

Dandelion contains up to 53% of the required daily intake of vitamin K and about 110% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. These facts about dandelion have been well understood for many years, however, recent studies shed a new light on the dandelion plant.

John di Carlo, 72-year-old who is personally convinced of the healing properties of dandelion, underwent intensive and “aggressive” chemotherapy treatments within 3 years of his life before the doctors sent him home  to spend “the last days of life” with his loved ones. Doctors have little or no interest in finding functional solutions in the fight against cancer, so it is no wonder that John began to drink dandelion tea as a last hope.

After only four months, according to Natural News, John went into remission (partial or complete regression of the disease)!

Stay tuned for more information on Dandelion Root research.

New Study Links Atrial Fibrillation to H. Pylori

Though I have been researching this topic for 13 years, it has only been the last three years that I’ve fully understood the direct link between H. Pylori and Atrial Fibrillation. As Allopathic doctors are forced to look more closely at the risk factors associated with atrial fibrillation, they are less able to ignore the obvious. This isn’t going to make doctor any new friends in the pharmaceutical industry, but it’s good news for you and me.

The following material is largely quoted from Ronald Grisanti D.C., D.A.B.C.O., D.A.C.B.N., M.S.:

We now learn that a new study finds that a common bacteria known as to cause ulcers may now also be responsible for irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation (AF).

Dr. Annibale Montenero, lead researcher and chairman of Multimedica General Hospital’s Cardiology Department and Arrhythmia Center, has discovered a strong link between the bacteria helicobacter pylori and an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation.

What is Atrial Fibrillation


Atrial fibrillation is a heart disorder affecting about 2.2 million Americans, according to the American Heart Association.

Atrial fibrillation/flutter is a disorder of the heart’s rhythm. In atrial fibrillation, the heart’s two upper chambers (the atria) quiver or flutter instead of beating effectively. Unfortunately, the blood isn’t pumped out completely. This has the potential to cause the blood to pool and clot.

Is Atrial Fibrillation Dangerous?

If a blood clot in the atria leaves the heart and becomes lodged in an artery in the brain, a stroke results. About 15 percent of strokes occur in people with atrial fibrillation.

Symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation:

• Sensation of feeling heart beat (palpitations)
• Pulse may feel rapid, racing, pounding, fluttering, or it can feel too slow
• Pulse may feel regular or irregular
• Dizziness, light-headedness
• Fainting
• Confusion
• Fatigue
• Shortness of breath
• Breathing difficulty, lying down
• Sensation of tightness in the chest

Is Atrial fibrillation Dangerous?



If a blood clot in the atria leaves the heart and becomes lodged in an artery in the brain, a stroke results. About 15 percent of strokes occur in people with atrial fibrillation. 

How the Study was Conducted

 59 patients suffering from persistent atrial fibrillation were administered a series of tests including a test to measure the levels of C-reactive protein in the blood and a test for H. pylori. 

The results of these tests were then compared with results from the control group, which included 45 healthy people. 

In addition to having C-reactive protein levels roughly 5 times higher than the control group, researchers found AF patients were also shown to be 20 times more likely to show levels of H. pylori.


In the overall analysis, 97.2 percent of atrial fibrillation patients were positive for H. pylori compared with just 5.3 percent of controls.

Investigators note that the link between H. pylori and atrial fibrillation is “highly significant.

Based on the findings, physicians are advised to check their AF patients for H. pylori and eliminate it whenever it is found.

Aloe Vera Rocking The World of Wellness

Aloe Vera

By now many of you are aware of Aloe vera’s long history of traditional medicine usage for wound healing.  Recently a reader brought my attention to another brand of aloe vera and wanted to know if it was acceptable to use – since she was unable to get the normal brand we recommend in her country.

Aloe Vera – New Brand Arriving Soon!

I reached out and made contact with the manufacturer of this brand.  You are all in for a real treat.  Not only is the new product top quality, but also this manufacturer knows more about the plant and its efficacy than anyone  you are ever likely to run in to.

I am negotiating with them to see if they’ll allow me to carry it and feature it on the site. The moment it is available, I will let everyone know through a blog update, and for those who are on the mailing list, I’ll send out a message to all.

Those of you who have been with me for the 12 years that I have been blogging on the topic of heart palpitations know that we discovered the power of aloe vera back in about 2007.  Since that time, I have heard nothing but amazing stories about the power of aloe vera.  As you may also know, finding a solid supply of great Aloe vera is not easy. Many of you that wrote to me from England, Australia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and other countries know that it is difficult to get hold of a great aloe vera product.  That is soon going to change as I make it available to everyone on a global basis.

Stay tuned as we learn more about Aloe vera and its wonderful health benefits!

Meanwhile, check out some of the latest science on Aloe Vera:

Aloe Vera Improving Digestion Lowering Inflammation

Studies show Aloe Vera a growing “Champ” in fighting inflammation

Aloe VeraI recently made contact with a lady while I was conducting further research on the power of Aloe Vera. Many people who write to me express concern for the brand of aloe vera that I have been using.  They did not like the fact that it contained carrageenan.  My reasoning for “tolerating” carrageenan was that when you feel as though you are dying – right now – and my brand of aloe vera stops that, then I chose to overlook that risk.  Life is all about risks.

That said, I am never satisfied with not moving forward.  I believe that all things happen for a reason. And recently a young lady wrote to me asking if this certain brand of aloe vera, in the freeze dried powder form, would do the trick.  I reached out to the company and made contact with the owner, Pat.

Pat was very forthcoming and exceedingly knowledgeable about not only the  brand I have been using, but also about aloe gel generally.  Her product is freeze dried very rapidly after harvest.  I don’t think you can get much fresher than that.  Also, Pat told me about the concentration of nutrients being very close to the pericarp (outer skin).  My brand uses mostly the inner fillet.  So the concentration of nutrients will be lower in my brand.

I asked Pat if she would consider allowing me to carry her product right on the site and she seems to agree that it would be ok.  Nothing is confirmed yet, but I thought I would let you all know.

Pat also pointed me to her “physicians portal” that links to hundreds of clinical studies on Aloe vera. I am slowly making my way through them.

We have always known there is a link between digestion and palpitations, but these studies really drive the point home.  Here is one such study below.  It can be a bit technical to read, but there is no question that we have a very powerful natural supplement on our hands.

Abstract: There can be little doubt that the properties ascribed to Aloe vera should be therapeutically helpful in the management of peptic ulcer; but whether or not these properties occasion correction of the ulcer-producing process, it is unmistakable that Aloe vera, through whatever mechanism, is clinically beneficial in the treatment of this very important disease.

No More Heart Palpitations

I get email from all over the world. I am so grateful for the email I get and the people are so nice. Each of them have their busy lives and families. I love to help them out by sharing my research experiences with heart palpitations. Every once in a while I get a “super letter” thanking me. This local fellow has been a friend for many years and it was only after I insisted that he get some tests, that he followed my lead. He wants you to hear what he has to say:

H. Pylori Linked to Atrial Fibrillation
Italian researchers say the idea for the study came after they discovered that many of the patients treated at their cardiology clinic for atrial fibrillation also had stomach problems.

VIRTUALLY EVERY ONE OF MY ATTACKS WAS ALSO ACCOMPANIED BY STOMACH ISSUES.  One time got it driving over the Coke to Penticton.  Went to the hospital there WITH THE WORST ACID ATTACK EVER.  Gulping down boxes of Tums.  To no avail.  I TOLD THE DR. ON DUTY.  No response.  They didn’t make the connection!  Why is it you and I have make the connection and the ‘specialists’ haven’t?  WHY???

By the way, when they say that A-Frib victims are “20 times more likely to test + for H-P”, that means they’re 2000% more likely to have H-P!!! 2,000% !   And that’s not significant????  And take note that the Italians noticed that a-frib patients they treated also manifested ???  STOMACH PROBLEMS!!   Every time I had an attack I also had accompanying stomach problems!!!  Since I got rid of the h-p it’s been GREAT.  The odd flutter, but nothing serious.

I can recall that sort of thing going back decades.  But no a-frib.  I’m only using the medications at night.  Virtually never during the day, which they prescribed, so I’ve built up a surplus.  I strongly suspect that the one dose I’m taking wouldn’t be necessary either.  This is a MAJOR finding – one that I was NOT told about by ANY of the doctors!!!

Okay.  Here’s the compliment.  Nick, it is YOU I have to thank for the well being I now have!!  Had YOU not insisted I get checked for H-P a year or so ago, I’d STILL be rotating thru emergency!!  Clip this and copy it to your site!!!  This is probably the single biggest gift you could have ever given me and I am sincerely appreciative.  Do pass this on to others on your site so they can benefit too.  As a result of this whole A-Frib thing doctors scare the hell out of me.  I must admit to having lost a huge amount of faith in them.  Your not a doctor but it was YOU who came up with the one thing that has, so far, put an end to this beast!  In this field, you’re definitely a Jack Bauer!!

New Study Points To H. Pylori

I’ve been studying this subject for over 12 years.  I stumbled onto the link between H. Pylori and Afib about 14 months ago.  Getting rid of H. Pylori assisted several local residents in my area to free themselves of palpitations and H. Pylori.  Today, one of my European followers sent this information from an Italian study.

Milan, Italy – A pilot study has found an association between Helicobacter pylori infection and atrial fibrillation.

“This is the first study to show a highly significant correlation between AF and H pylori,” Montenero told heart wire .

“A lot of patients reported to me that their AF started very soon after gastric problems began,” Montenero notes.

The patients with AF were around 20 times more likely to test positive for H pylori as the healthy volunteers, and their levels of CRP were around five times as high.

That translates to a 2000% increase!!   

Tired of Suffering from Stomach Pain?

I was too. I was tired of endlessly taking OTC drugs for my stomach problems such as:

  • Antacids
  • H2-blockers
  • Proton-pump inhibitors

These drugs only masked my symptoms, not treated the cause.

I was also tired of waking up with stomach pain and going to bed with stomach pain. I forgot what it was like to enjoy food and the pleasure of eating with friends and family.

Even prescription drugs did not work. And the last thing I wanted was to try the horrid, conventional triple or quad therapies with loads of antibiotics to make me feel even more miserable.

Do these symptoms sound familiar?

  • Burning or gnawing abdominal pain
  • Excessive burping
  • Feeling bloated
  • Loss of appetite
  • Black stools
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Heartburn
  • Fatigue

If so, you may be suffering from an Helicobacter pylor infection. More than half the world’s population is infected with the H. pylori bacterium, so it is not a rare condition.

Looking for Alternative Natural Treatments?

I don’t start taking natural remedies on blind faith. I have a scientific background in environmental biology so I understand the importance of scientifically-based, statistically-significant proof from peer-reviewed research vs opinion or unproven, anecdotal experiences.

Sure, you can find lots of info on the web about using this or that natural remedy to kill H. pylori, but how do you know if it’s correct? You should never take an alternative remedy based solely on manufacturer claims and/or because “Suzy” in the upset-stomach forum said it worked for her.

I spent a lot of time on the web over the years doing research, weeding through lots of unreliable, anecdotal information to reading actual scientific journal articles. And not just the abstract summaries or introductions of articles, I read through many sections of material and methods, results and discussions to make sure I understood the research process and conclusions of proof for H. pylori eradication and/or ulcer healing.

I have summarized my findings in this book, letting you know what works and what does not. Hopefully, this will save you some time so you can stop suffering and start healing as soon as possible. Many of these natural remedies are also good for digestion in general, and will help prevent and alleviate most kinds of stomach upset.

Montenero et al propose that auto-antibodies to H pylori might cause damage to the sodium potassium pump of cardiac cells, as the latter are similar to the proton pumps of gastric cells, which the bacterium are known to damage.

Montenero told heart wire that, with the help of gastroenterologists, his team eradicated the H pylori in their AF patients and in the majority of cases, AF ceased to be a problem.

WHEN H-PYLORI WAS ELIMINATED, AF CEASED TO BE A PROBLEM!! 

Montenero thinks paroxysmal (Paroxysmal attacks or paroxysms are a sudden recurrence or intensification of symptoms, such as a spasm or seizure.)  These short, frequent and stereotyped symptoms can be observed in various clinical conditions. AF may indicate the beginning of H pylori infection while persistent AF could be a sign of ongoing infection.

Those with AF more than 20 times as likely to test positive for H pylori 1200-patient study now planned.

Afib and H. Pylori

A numer of you have written in the past month regarding digestive issue and palpitations.  I realize that this article from PUBMED might be a bit technical, but it is proof positive of the connection between afib and H. Pylori.  That is not to suggest that H. Pylori is the only cause of afib, but that it is a significant risk factor for many people.  It would be wise for any of you that suffer from afib to see your doctors and to insist on an H. Pylori test.

Here is the PubMed Article:

We soon realised AF and H pylori infection were associated. We therefore established the study reported here, which we believe to be the first that shows a highly significant correlation between AF and H pylori. The association between AF and H pylori was very strong in patients with persistent AF.

In addition, we report high concentrations of CRP, which confirm the presence of systemic inflammation in patients with AF, which leads us to hypothesise that H pylori infection may be the substrate of this systemic inflammation manifesting in AF. Chung and colleagues 3 were the first to document an inflammatory state in patients with AF.

H pylori is a very strong bacterium, with features that allow it to cross gastric mucus and to attach to epithelial cells, thereby evading the immune response. H pylori infection is responsible for determining an important systemic and mucosal humoral response, but these antibodies do not eradicate the infection and may contribute to tissue damage. 5 Different H pylori strains can determine the specific systemic antibody response in infected patients.

Some patients with H pylori have autoantibodies to the H+/K+-ATPase of gastric parietal cells that can determine corpus atrophy. 6 Considering that there is a similarity between H+/K+-ATPase, the proton pump of gastric cells, and Na+/K+-ATPase, the pump of cardiac cells, which are inhibited by cardiac glycoside such as digoxin, an interesting hypothesis is that these autoantibodies to H+/K+-ATPase may also be antibodies to Na+/K+-ATPase, thus determining atrial damage.

In fact, cardiac Na+/K+-ATPase and H+/K+-ATPase have a similar 35 kDa glycoprotein necessary for their catalytic activity. The role of these pumps is to maintain ionic homeostasis by hydrolysing ATP and therefore loss of this balance may trigger AF by determining abnormal automaticity or triggered activity that causes delay after depolarisation inducing very rapid premature atrial contractions. Several issues remain unresolved.

We have shown the highly significant link between AF and H pylori in our relatively small sample and confirmed that CRP is a good marker for the inflammatory process. More data will be necessary from controlled studies to further identify how H pylori can influence the pathogenesis of AF.

Gut Bacteria and Anxiety

gut-bacteria-990x534If you’ve been reading blog for long, you realize the connection between gut bacteria and the range of digestive issues, including heart palpitations, that we’ve been addressing.

Recently, researchers discovered that prebiotics (the “food” meant to nourish healthy bacteria present in the gut) may actually have an anti-anxiety or anti-depressant effect on humans. The more we learn about palpitations from the thousands of you that write in, the more we understand that the best source of prebiotic is always raw fruit and vegetables and or fresh raw organic juice.

A new study at Oxford University provides important insight into the brain-gut connection and represents one of the first trials done to examine this relationship in human patients.

Interestingly, test subjects who took a prebiotic every day for 3 week experienced less anxiety in response to negative stimuli than the placebo group, paying less attention to negatively-charged words and more attention to positive information. additionally, the prebiotic group has lower cortisol levels (a stress hormone linked to anxiety and depression).

While traditional therapies like anti-anxiety and depressant medications continue to be marketed heavily to a blissfully ignorant population, researchers believe that prebiotics and probiotics could ultimately be used as another tool to help manage mental illness.
