CBD Oil and Panic Attacks

Several months ago, my wife started using CBD oil for her arthritis. I began to do the research on it at the time and have continued to compile data on the effectiveness of CBD oil.

For those that don’t know what CBD oil is, allow me to explain. There are two plants that produce CBD oil. One is the marijuana plant, and the other is the hemp plant. They are nearly identical plants with the exception being that hemp does not contain sufficient amounts of THC (the psychoactive component) to affect a person’s mind in “getting high” sort of way.

There is a mountain of evidence going back to the mid 1960s on the efficacy of CBD or Cannabidiol. Over the next few weeks, I’ll post some of the data that show the effectiveness of this oil. In the mean time, take watch of this video and let me know what you think!

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 letter from a reader thanking me. One such writer recently said:

A recent Italian study links H. Pylori 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 it hit me while driving over the mountains to visit a friend. I ended up in hospital WITH THE WORST BOUT OF PALPITATIONS EVER! Gulping down Tums and GASX which helped a lot, but didn't totally stop it. I told the doctor on duty why I was taking GASX, but he just thought I was nuts.

Doctors never seems to make the connection between heart palpitations and digestion. Why is it you and I have make the connection and the 'specialists' haven't? By the way, when the study also says that AFib victims are 20 times more likely to test positive for H. Pylori. That means they are 2000% more likely to have H. Pilori. You would think that this fact is significant!

It seems to me that the medical profession is deliberately suppressing the real causes of heart palpitations or Afib. The Italian study also notes that afib patients also manifested STOMACH PROBLEMS!

After reading your blog, I started to pay attention and sure enough, every time I had an afib attack I also had accompanying stomach problems! I finally forced my doctor to give me the h. pylori test. He really resisted this.  But since I got rid of the h. pylori it’s been GREAT. I get the odd flutter, but nothing serious, like before! I feel like I have my life back.

And when I reflect back on my life, I can recall having afib attacks going back decades. The doctors prescribed atenolol, but I don't like the way they make me feel, so I have a little supply as "emergency backup" if I ever need it.

The stomach-afib connection is a MAJOR finding, and 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. Pylori a year or so ago, I'd STILL be rotating thru emergency rooms. This is probably the single biggest gift you could have ever given me and I am sincerely appreciative. Please pass this on to others on your site so they can benefit too. As a result of this whole AFib 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!

CBD Oil and it’s Benefits

Marijuana LeafMost of us today can’t remember a time when Cannabis was not a prohibited substance but few of us really understand why.  It is surprising to learn that business leaders of the 1930’s such as William Randolph Hearst and Dupont employed propaganda campaigns vilifying Cannabis that, on the surface, appeared to protect public morals, but were, in fact, nothing more than an effort to protect their own fiber, timber and petroleum interests.

It is hard to imagine that millions of patients around the world were been denied their medicine and turned into criminals so that moguls like Hearst and Dupont could increase their profits.

For the last 80 years we have been sold and propagandized the big lie – that marijuana holds no medicinal value despite the fact that history is filled with examples of cannabis being used successfully for the preceding 5000 years.  Research on the benefits of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in isolation is well established. THC demonstrates analgesic, anti-emetic and anti-inflammatory properties, whereas CBD possesses anti-psychotic, anti-seizure and anti-anxiety properties.

But in 2016, the veil is now lifted on the truth about cannabis. And there is important new research on the body’s endocannabinoid system that is bringing to light the many medicinal benefits of Cannabis.


So far, there are over 20,000 published studies or reviews in the scientific literature referencing the cannabis plant and its cannabinoids, nearly half of which were published within the last five years. While much of the renewed interest in cannabinoid therapeutics is a result of the discovery of the endocannabinoid regulatory system in 1988, some of this increased attention is also due to the growing body of testimonials from medical cannabis patients and their physicians.


  • Inhibits Tumor growth
  • Effective treatment for Seizures
  • Effective treatment for Migraines
  • Effective treatment for Glaucoma
  • PMS symptoms
  • Treatment for ADD and ADHD
  • Helps with symptoms from IBS and Crohn’s Disease
  • Helps to prevent Alzheimers
  • Aids with the management of MS
  • Reduces stress and promotes relaxation

The Endocannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.

Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life, from the sub-cellular, to the organism, and perhaps to the community and beyond. Here’s one example: autophagy, a process in which a cell sequesters part of its contents to be self-digested and recycled, is mediated by the cannabinoid system. While this process keeps normal cells alive, allowing them to maintain a balance between the synthesis, degradation, and subsequent recycling of cellular products, it has a deadly effect on malignant tumor cells, causing them to consume themselves in a programmed cellular suicide. The death of cancer cells, of course, promotes homeostasis and survival at the level of the entire organism.

Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are also found at the intersection of the body’s various systems, allowing communication and coordination between different cell types. At the site of an injury, for example, cannabinoids can be found decreasing the release of activators and sensitizers from the injured tissue, stabilizing the nerve cell to prevent excessive firing, and calming nearby immune cells to prevent release of pro-inflammatory substances. Three different mechanisms of action on three different cell types for a single purpose: minimize the pain and damage caused by the injury.

The endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see a mechanism that explains how states of consciousness can promote health or disease.

In addition to regulating our internal and cellular homeostasis, cannabinoids influence a person’s relationship with the external environment. Socially, the administration of cannabinoids clearly alters human behavior, often promoting sharing, humor, and creativity. By mediating neurogenesis, neuronal plasticity, and learning, cannabinoids may directly influence a person’s open-mindedness and ability to move beyond limiting patterns of thought and behavior from past situations. Reformatting these old patterns is an essential part of health in our quickly changing environment.

For those who desire simply the benefits of cannabidiol, without the effects of THC, we have the the hemp plant where levels of THC is verified by the FDA in most cases as “not detectable”.  This “zero THC” strain of cannabinoid is the focus of my attention on this blog.  Over the coming months, I will highlight relevant research and demonstrate the effects of CBD oil on anxiety, relaxation and heart palpitations.

Lavender Oil and Cancer

Lavender Essential Oil Uses and its Benefits for Cancer Patients

As an anti-tumoral. One of the active phytochemicals (plant chemicals) within lavender is perillyl alcohol. In 2015, researchers found that perillyl alcohol administered via nasal inhalation was an effective treatment for glioblastoma patients. These patients had become unresponsive to standard cancer therapies and faced a “dismal prognosis.” The study indicated that long-term inhalation of perillyl alcohol was very well tolerated over several years of daily use. (Several years means the patients lived much longer than expected!)

Another phytochemical within lavender is linalool. Recent (2016) research on linalool indicated it has “significant” cytotoxic (cancer cell killing) and apoptotic (programmed cell death) activity against epithelial ovarian cancer cells. In addition, researchers found that combining linalool with paclitaxel significantly decreased tumor weight, compared with the use of paclitaxel alone.

2015 research on linalool against human melanoma cells revealed that linalool had an inhibitory effect on the growth of these cells.

A 2014 study demonstrated that Lavandula angustifolia essential oil exhibited significant cytotoxic effects against malignant cervical cancer cells. It had the same effect on both estrogen- and progesterone-receptor positive breast cancer cells.

In another study from 2013, researchers found that Lavandula angustifolia decreased the viability of Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells. Lavender inhibited cell proliferation (rapid growth) and induced apoptosis (programmed cell death, lacking in cancer cells).

Lumen Naturals Turmeric Curcumin Is The Best Way To Kick Inflammation To The Curb

Turmeric Curcumin

For just over 14 years I’ve been on the trail finding the best methods to reduce inflammation and thereby allow the body to maintain optimal health. A couple of months ago, I discovered this product.  What caught my eye is the fact that they are the only company I know of that understands the relationship between ingredient and solubility.  Their advice to take the turmeric with oil is perfect.  When you consume turmeric with oil, you skyrocket the amount of product that is absorbed by the body!

Turmeric Curcumin is known for its ability to reduce inflammation, thus its power to combat illness. Illnesses such as joint pain, cholesterol issues, blood sugar level variations, and others, are all caused or exacerbated by inflammation. Turmeric curcumin root is a broad spectrum compound with many health benefits, and is a natural antioxidant, which defends the cells of the body from injury by free radicals. Researchers have found that turmeric extract can affect more than 100 different pathways, once it gets into the cell with no negative side effects. Turmeric curcumin has been shown to influence more than 700 genes, and it can inhibit both the activity and the synthesis of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) and 5-lipooxygenase (5-LOX), as well as other enzymes that have been implicated in inflammation.

Founder of Lumen Naturals, Adam Donahue, can’t praise the power of Turmeric Curcumin enough. He claims that inflammation is the top destroyer of good health, saying, “almost every single disease and illness stems from inflammation and free radicals in the body. Turmeric Curcumin is legendary for its powers to reduce inflammation and combat free radicals. Every single person should be taking it daily as part of their supplement regime for health and wellness promotion, and equally as important, to prevent the onset of diseases.”

The only problem with this amazing supplement is that is not highly water soluble, so taking it alone with water does not provide the levels of absorption required for serious treatment. However, the solution is simple: take the turmeric capsules with 1 tablespoon of high quality, organic, extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil is an omega 3 fatty acid that helps your cellular health by improving the membrane wall of your cells, which has multiple health benefits, but more specifically increases the ability of the cells to absorb the curcuminoids (the active ingredient in turmeric) as they enter your blood stream, increasing bioavailability.

Donahue explains his choice for launching Lumen Naturals high quality Turmeric Curcumin supplement, claiming, “a lot of people take health supplements that are just known as basics such as a multi-vitamin or vitamin C or D3, but Turmeric Curcumin is one of the most important supplements you can take, and we want to offer it at an incredible price so more and more people can experience the benefits of this incredible natural herb.”

New Study Links Atrial Fibrillation to H. Pylori

I was diagnosed with H.Pylori a year and a half ago and I am now certain that I have had it for years. In July of 2014 I was also diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation - which is a rapid firing of the heart's atrium. 

When I was researching H.Pylori along with my brother, we discovered numerous articles on the connection between H. Pylori and afib, or heart palpitations.

"Researchers note that the link between H. Pylori and atrial fibrillation is highly significant." www.yourmedicaldetective.com

I wonder how many people have H. Pylori AND have heart disturbances like afib? The article we found says this:

A common stomach bug may also be linked to the development of irregular heart rhythm, also known as atrial fibrillation, suggests a small study in Heart.

The bug in question, Helicobacter pylori, causes ulcers, and has also been implicated in the development of stomach cancer and ischaemic heart disease.

The researchers base their findings on 59 patients with persistent atrial fibrillation. The patients included those who had no structural heart disease.

All the patients were given a battery of tests, including a heart tracing, and levels of C reactive protein, an indicator of systemic inflammation. They were also directly tested for the presence of H pylori.

The results were compared with those from a group of 45 healthy volunteers in whom the same tests were carried out.

Both groups were similar in terms of age and levels of blood fats, although significantly more of the patients with atrial fibrillation were being treated for high blood pressure.

The patients with atrial fibrillation were around 20 times as likely to test positive for H pylori as the healthy volunteers, and their levels of C reactive protein were around five times as high.

Both rates of H pylori and C reactive protein levels were also significantly higher among those patients with persistent atrial fibrillation than those with spasmodic episodes of irregular heart rhythm.

H pylori is a very resilient bacterium and has properties that enable it to escape detection by the immune system, say the authors. And chronic gastritis, caused by persistent H pylori infection, may predispose to atrial fibrillation, they suggest.

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.


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.

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.?
