Ebola Diary

After attending a seminar tonight on the value of L-Lyseine and Vitamin C, I came home to do some additional research on the Vitamin C angle. The Harvard doctor who put on the seminar had interviewed Linus Pauling twice in the past.  This doctor was a huge believer in the power of Vitamin C.  He was also over 90 years old!  

Much of my study has been around inflammation and control of free radicals.  So it wasn't a big jump when we began discussing the potential for Vitamin C and Ebola. Our doctor pointed out that in clinical trials, no virus has ever survived 12 days of high dose intravenous sodium ascorbate. He publicly wondered why no one appears to have tested it on ebola yet.  

That said, when I got back to my computer, I began searching.  Here is some of what I found:​


Ebola and Sodium Ascorbate: From Vitamin C Foundation

Note that the 2005 epidemic in Angola which was first referred to as an Ebola like virus has now been called the Marburg Virus. It does not make a difference from the point of view of treatment with massive doses of intravenous sodium ascorbate.

Both diseases kill by way of free radicals which can be neutralized by massive doses of sodium ascorbate intravenously. Note on another hemorrhagic fever ( acute induced scurvy): Nurse Pineo, the first white that survived the Lassa fever (another hemorrhagic fever) outbreak in Lassa, was, on her own, taking vitamins (Fuller, JG. Fever. Reader's Digest Press. 1974.)

Of course that was ignored and they used her convalescent serum for subsequent cases of Lassa fever in medical personnel. Why not give subsequent cases vitamins also? Maybe especially massive doses of vitamin C - to prevent the acute induced scurvy. It does not take a genius to figure out that with the increased bowel tolerance to oral ascorbic acid somewhat proportional to the toxicity of the disease that the most serious infectious diseases would rapidly exhaust all the bodies vitamin C, acute induced scurvy, and cause bleeding all over the body and finally free radical deaths.

Doses of Intravenous Sodium Ascorbate Indicated My experience with giving massive doses of ascorbic acid orally to over 30,000 patients and with giving intravenous sodium ascorbate to over 2,000 patients would indicate that with Ebola and other viral hemorrhagic fever diseases that intravenous sodium ascorbate should be used in doses beginning with at least 180 grams per 24 hours. If the fever is not controlled or the symptoms are not reduced, the dosage and the rate of administration should be increased until they are controlled.

The doses of 180 grams per 24 hours would be administered in 3 bottles of lactated Ringer's, D5W. or 1/2NS with 60 grams of sodium ascorbate added per 8 hours. Do not be afraid of increasing the rate of administration. When I give one to two of these bottles in the office I have them run in 2 to 3 hours each. However, when administered in a hospital, the administration should be constant, around the clock at the rate and amount to eliminate the symptoms.

When I mention a rate that is administered in 24 hours, I mean just that, the rate. If the fever does not abate in the first 3 or 4 hours, the rate should be increased to whatever necessary to break the fever. However, when the fever and other symptoms abate then the rate of administration can be reduced. How to prepare these sodium ascorbate solutions for intravenous use is described in detail.  (Click Here)

When the Ebola or any other hemorrhagic disease has remitted to the point where intravenous sodium ascorbate is no longer necessary, bowel tolerance doses should be given orally until there is completer recovery.

When bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid are used orally be sure to keep the patient well hydrated. Do not under any circumstances let the patient become dehydrated when large doses of ascorbic acid are being administered orally. Because there is a breakdown of the blood vessels, it might be helpful to give a couple of grams of bioflavonoids and a multiple vitamin every day.

Oh! but I forgot, these are not patentable so not profitable to the drug industry.

If the good doctor tonight was correct, then Big Pharma will go after this article like there was no tomorrow.  If he is correct, then Big Pharma is planning to use the Ebola pandemic to line it's pockets - the like of which we've never seen before.  

The right thing to do, of course, would be to test the efficacy of sodium ascorbate intravenously and let the chips fall where they may.  Let's see what they do.

Inflammation – The Root of All Disease

My wife called me into her office yesterday.  She has a TV running as she works on designing her dog training material.  She is a local dog trainer.  She says to me, "Hey! They're saying what you have been saying for many years!  Inflammation is the big culprit!"  

The TV program showed a Doctor who had written a book about inflammation.  This doctor was delivering the essence of her book to an in-studio audience of about 300.  

This situation actually makes me feel much better about the medical industry.  It appears, at least, that on the periphery some doctors are starting to speak out about inflammation.  Everywhere you go you read about inflammation.  Doctor Oz, Doctor Mercola, and many others are finally opening the topic up for discussion.  

I do NOT believe that doctors know very little about inflammation - as doctor Mercola suggests.  ​I think it is more sinister than that.  I believe that doctors know very well what is at the root of most diseases.  I just believe that they choose to support the pharmaceutical companies - rather than to cure their patients.  If you doubt this, just try discussing a "cure" online.  The FDA will be down on you so fast it would make your head spin.  I don't believe that the concept of "cure" is anything that the FDA could tolerate.  

Thankfully, the world is changing.  It would benefit you to do some research on inflammation.  Once you understand the powerful effects of inflammation, you will quickly understand why the regimen that I use for preventing heart palpitations works so well.​

Is There A Cure For Ebola?

You would have to be hiding under a rock not to know about the world-wide Ebola scare going on right now.  Sadly, mankind is proving once again that it lacks sufficient IQ points to protect itself.  Because of the fear of racial profiling, exceedingly relevant data was NOT passed on the to the doctor who treated the poor man in Dallas that has become infected with Ebola.  Because the likely "fired-by-now" nurse did not want include that the man was travelling from Africa, the doctor was prevented from knowing this all-important information that could have saved hundreds, or even thousands, of lives.  Folks, we have a recipe for disaster.  Why is this?

We have bureaucrats in charge of organizing a response.  We have an FDA that operates more as a policing arm for Big Pharma, and an undocumented and unqualified president who is more likely to go golfing after hearing the pandemic is now on his shores. Do you remember the Iraq war and the giant corporation that profited from arms sales and continued warfare?  I am sorry to be so cynical, but is not different today.  It's just a new group at the trough.  Once the Ebola outbreaks is significant enough to create intense pain for Americans, Big Pharma will just to the rescue with the vaccine they've been sitting on the 12 years!  You know they are only going to manufacture it when there is enough profit in it for them to pay attention.  

Having said that, perhaps this will be the pandemic that wakes mankind up.  In my business (the software industry) we have what's called "open source".  It means - everything I know about the source code is open to everyone.  Ten thousand programmers can pool their collective intellect to address development processes.  It means you can buy an operating system for $10 that is really worth $150,000 a copy!  ​At the same time, medicine is "closed source".  This means that every greedy little bureaucrat at the head of each company closely guards company codes and secrets.  Its a race of individuals toward a finish line.  Along the way, they'll steal from each other, kill each other, spy on each other, bribe governments, buy governments, finance wars, start race riots, and even bankrupt countries to get what they want. They win. You lose. 

Am I being too harsh on the FDA?  Tim will tell.  Will big pharma allow anyone on the planet to even discuss potential cures for Ebola that don't come directly from their siblings in Big Pharma?  I'm guessing they will go as far as hiring people to go after anyone who gets close to a promising cure.  

I have personally used botanicals like Wild Oil of Oregano to rid myself of lung infections going back 20 years.  I researched the US Patent office and found that at least a half dozen pharmaceutical companies were trying to patent the active ingredient "carvacrol" to develop an aerosol dispersal mechanism for the product.  In their submissions to the patent office, these companies claimed that carvacrol was more powerful than their top five antibiotics!

I have also recently experimented with Gentian root extract.  According to the Duke Phyto-nutritional Database there are many majorly powerful antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibiotic effects to be derived from this plant.  ​

When I read the reports today that there has been a lot of activity around Garcinia Kola nut (Kola Bitters) and it potential ability to stop ebola, I secretly wondered if this would be the start of the end of Big Pharma's reign.  When the world is facing a pandemic the size of this one, there are no forces that can stop a sovereign man from protecting his family - especially when societal protection agencies abrogate their responsibilities.  Its no longer the mid-seventh century.  The big no longer eat the small.  It is the fast that eat the slow.

I would like to hear from anyone who might have experience with Gentian Root (Bitters) and ebola. I doubt that anyone has tried this yet, as it is not indicated in any medical text.  I am certainly no doctor, and I would not want to interfere with legitimate treatment, but the matter does leave me curious.  ​Gentian Root has many of the same properties as Garcinia Kola Nut.  I just wonder if it has been tested.

Stop Heart Palpitations – Summer Recap

Stop Heart Palpitations

We’re pretty much at the end of the summer now here in North America. For those of you who have managed to stay with your diet plans, kudos to you. It is very difficult to pull this off. For those of us who have cheated a bit from time to time, we know all to well what this means for palpitations.

If you just arrived at this site looking for relief from your palpitations, then you’ve come to the right spot for sure. I am certainly not a doctor, but I probably have more experience dealing with and re-mediating the effects of palpitations. I’ve been at it now for 12 years. I have my palpitations under control, but if I abandon my regimen, they will come back with a vengeance. I chose the organic method to prevent heart palpitations because after trying the toxic pharmaceutical chemicals that doctors prescribed to me, I felt worse in many ways.

You need to change how you look at palpitations. Palpitations are merely a manifestation of a condition that you created - which would allow their existence. This is the MAJOR difference between my approach and that of a doctor. Doctors prefer to hand out toxic chemicals in order to force the heart to NOT Respond to the environment that you created. The result is - no palpitations (until you build up an immunity to the toxins. After which, the palps will start up again, and you’ll need stronger toxic chemicals. And so the cycle goes).

My preference is to stop creating the environment where palps can exist. If that environment does not exist in your body, then you just won’t have palpitations. This is a painfully obvious situation, but it does take multiple billions of dollars out of the pockets of the sickness industry.

This blog is all about giving you the tools to know who to “not create” that environment.

Carnitine and Fat Loss

Carnitine Fights Visceral Belly Fat

Visceral belly fat is one of the toughest fats to lose once you’ve got it, and it causes numerous health problems. Once you begin to gain visceral fat around the belly, it will lead to fat gain within the organs such as the liver, the heart, or even in muscle. Fat gain in the liver leads to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, while epicardial fat is a type of visceral fat that is deposited around the heart and is considered a metabolically active organ, altering heart function.

Raising your carnitine levels will fight this visceral fat gain because it increases fat burning, which has the effect of taking triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins out of the system so that they don’t build up causing high cholesterol and atherosclerosis. A new research study in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology illustrates this.

Researchers gave a carnitine supplement to mice who were fed a high-fat diet in order to make them gain weight. In comparison to a group of mice fed a placebo, the carnitine group gained substantially less visceral and subcutaneous fat (fat that is right below the surface of the skin that you can pinch with your fingers). The placebo group exhibited the beginning stages of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis, neither of which were evident in the carnitine group.

Treatment with L-carnitine significantly reduced mortality 5 days after randomization but did not significantly affect the risk of heart failure or death at 6 months. The authors of a 2013 meta-analysis combined the results from this trial with those from 12 smaller trials. They concluded that treatment with L-carnitine in patients experiencing an acute myocardial infarction reduces all-cause mortality by 27%, ventricular arrhythmias by 65%, and angina by 40% over a median follow-up period of 2 months, but does not reduce the risk of heart failure or recurrence of myocardial infarction.

Bacopa Update

A few days ago I wrote about a herb that I had been trying for stomach inflammation issues. I want to be able to put an end to all palpitations, regardless of their origin. I can honestly say that tripping into this herb has been a godsend. It is changing my life in ways I never expected.

As a computer geeks who spends far too much time sitting at the computer, I carry too much weight, and that weight surely must affect my overall health.

So what I have noticed since I started taking Bacopa is that I just feel great, and I feel like doing more stuff! Example, last night I got home from work at 6 pm. Normally I’d go for a quick nap then have dinner and work on my websites for the rest of the evening. But last night I got home and grabbed my golf clubs, then went out and walked 18 holes of golf! That is a ton of exercise that I otherwise would not have gotten!

In addition, I notice that I am just not as hungry as I normally am. So, I’m eating less and getting about 80% more exercise. That has to be good for me. I’m down two belt notches in the past week. I’ve googled “bacopa and appetite” for have not yet found any indication for Bacopa to be a diet pill. Perhaps I should write to Dr. Oz about this? Regardless, I feel so good that I am going to continue with this trial for another month or two and see where it takes me.

Oh yes… and PALPITATIONS? They are the furthest thing from my mind while taking this supplement.

Why Do I Get Heart Palpitations?

Why Me?

This has to be the number one question I get.  The next question is "how do I stop palpitations fast?". Sadly, we live in a world that expects a "pill" for everything.  Doctors have trained most people to expect a pill as the solution to pretty much any issue.  Unfortunately, life doesn't really work that way.

By the time you start Googling your heart palpitation issue, you are well into the process that has led you to get palpitations in the first place.  And that process began many years before you actually got palpitations.  

The problem that is at the source of most our health issues is "inflammation".  Everything you do creates inflammation.  Golfing, walking, drinking soda, drinking wine, coffee, exercise of any kind, eating processed foods, and many other things lead to the growth of inflammation inside your bodies.

Inflammation will change the way your body develops.  It will determine who gets cancer and who does not.  It will cause your bones to hurt and your arteries to clog up.  It will destroy your digestive tract and it will significantly increase your aging process. It will even change your brain chemistry. These are facts that none of us like it, but all of us will experience one illness or another in our lifetime that is related to excessive inflammation.

You are here because you are looking for solutions.  If you want to change your situation for the better, then you need to spend some time on this site reading the material.​  If you can't be bothered to read, then you should realize up front that you are the personality type that won't be able to avoid the inflammation related diseases no matter what you do. You have a terminal case of "HLDS" (Healthy Lifestyle Deficit Syndrome) Live with it.  If you smoke, then you have to stop.  Forget "trying to quit!"  Just quit. Put down that pack and walk away.

Assuming you don't smoke, and that you care enough about your body to invest 30 minutes to find out how to save it, then you need to know that the first step in knowing exactly why you have palpitations is to analyze your lifestyle situation.  What do you eat or drink over a three week period?  Is your neighborhood polluted and poisoning you? What kind of drinking water do you have? 

Step 1:  Find the links on this page to request the "regimen".  I'll send you my personal regimen that I used to free myself from years of palpitations.  ​It won't directly apply to your own situation, but you will get a good look at what I did to solve my issues.  You might see some similarities there.

The key is to do something NOW - while you still can.  Decide TODAY that you aren't going to tolerate these palpitations any more!

Bacopa Monnieri and Heart Palpitations

BacopaI am always looking for new holistic methods to fight inflammation and aging. This we, I discovered one of the hottest new beauty trends from Bollywood? The discovery includes centuries-old herbal ingredients borrowed from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian method of holistic healing. The Ayurvedic herb of my focus right now is one that’s finding its way into skin and hair care products all over the world. It is called “bacopa monnieri.”

This delicate creeping flower is probably better known for its brain benefits, but bacopa’s potent antioxidant properties have also caught the attention of cosmetic manufacturers for its potential as a skin-saving free radical fighter. Some are even adding bacopa to hair and body treatments, making it a pampering bioactive that can boost beauty from head to toe. While this is interesting, it is not why I’m looking at it.

More about Bacopa

Bacopa is also known as water hyssop or brahmi, grows wild throughout India, where it has been used since at least the sixth century AD as a tonic for the nervous system and heart. This is the part that caught my attention. Packed with phytosterols and flavonoids, bacopa’s real claim to fame is bacopasides – the saponins thought to repair damaged neurons in the brain.

What Bacopa Does

Lab research has shown that bacopa protects against DNA damage in human fibroblasts – cells that form connective tissue. More recently, lab studies suggest that bacopa also encourages apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells. If future studies support these findings, cosmetic manufacturers may look to bacopa as protection against skin damage, premature wrinkles, and age spots. We will, of course, monitor this closely.

But skin isn’t the only place you will find bacopa’s beauty benefits. Women throughout India have long used bacopa for luxuriously long, shiny hair. Known as brahmi oil, bacopa is infused into either sesame or coconut oil. This light moisturizing oil is applied to the roots of hair and gently massaged into the scalp to stimulate and revitalize it. Brahmi oil is also wonderful in a warm bath or used during massage, especially if you have dry, damaged skin.

Additional Benefits from Bacopa

No one is quite sure how bacopa influences neurological chemistry – and research is still in the early stages — but studies show a clear link between bacopa and the brain.

One recent double-blind trial of 68 healthy participants found that those taking 150 mg of bacopa twice daily for 90 days experienced a significant improvement in their working memory compared to those taking a placebo. In the past week, I have personally spoken with several university students who claim to have used bacopa to give them the mental edge they needed for exams. While this is only anecdotal evidence, I will be looking for some clinical trials to back this up.

Other studies discovered that bacopa reduced anxiety while helping the mind learn quickly and retain information. And because of bacopa’s protective effect on neurons, some researchers believe it may help prevent and treat dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Once again, this is something that bears watching as more research is conducted.

For heart palpitations, however, a less well-known benefit is bacopa’s effect upon gastrointestinal issues – especially for people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). A clinical trial of 169 patients with IBS compared the effects of an Ayurvedic preparation containing bacopa to standard drug therapy.

At the end of the trial, those participants with IBS characterized by constipation did better on the drugs. But the subjects suffering from IBS with diarrhea got more relief from the ayurvedic therapy – probably because of bacopa’s ability to ease spasms in the gastrointestinal tract.

My own research already shows me that a spasming GI tract is a big issue for us here on the palpitations site. Quite often, these spasm are so aggressive that they are mistaken for heart palpitations. When this happens, we often go into a full blown anxiety attack. Of course, this only worsens the problem.

Where Can I Find Bacopa?

If you want the benefits of bacopa, think both inside and out. Studies show that taking 200 to 400 mg of a bacopa supplement to boost cognition and memory while potentially protecting your brain from age-related dementia. I buy most of my stuff rom Amazon.com. They are simply the best retailer on the planet. my stuff arrives in two days and is always top quality. Amazon will not deal with disreputable companies.

I am currently taking 250 mg per day – an hour before a meal – to measure the effects upon my GI tract.

In the coming weeks, I will report back on any benefits that I experience from this trial.

Spirulina

One of the “staple” supplements that I use is spirulina.  I’ve had a lot of feedback on this stuff and it just keeps on producing outstanding results.  One friend wrote to me to tell me about his wife’s “diabetic gastroparesis”.  She had palpitations, among other things, and after starting with spirulina, she completely turned her life around.  No longer in pain, she could once again enjoy the good things in life.

Spirulina grown in environmentally controlled cement ponds specially constructed for this purpose. Spirulina may be considered a dietary super food useful in nutrient boosting diets such as the programs competitive athletes use to enhance performance.

A wonderful aspect about spirulina is that it is about 70% protein when beef is only about 22% protein. Spirulina contains the following: vitamin A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cobalamin), vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, folate, vitamin K, biotin, pantothenic acid, beta carotene (source of vitamin A), and inositol.
