“Anything you take in your body will make you either Healthier or Sicker”
juicing removes the indigestible fiber,
when you eat a raw carrot, you are only able to assimilate about 1% of the available beta carotene.
carrot is juiced, removing the fiber, nearly 100% of the beta carotene can be assimilated.
Juicing helps you absorb all the nutrients from the vegetables.
•most of us have impaired digestion•This limits your body's ability to absorb all the nutrients•Juicing "pre-digest"
Juicing allows you to consume an optimal amount of vegetables in an efficient manner. •one pound of raw vegetables per 50 pounds of body weight per day. You can add a wider variety of vegetables in your diet.
•Many people eat the same vegetable salads every day.• juicing, you can get a wide variety of vegetables that you may not normally enjoy eating whole
Flavonoids are in fruits and vegetables, as well as in certain types of tea. These compounds are thought to be antioxidants -- compounds capable of 'mopping up' free radicals, the harmful byproducts of normal metabolism.
antioxidants help prevent cancer, hear t disease, and other i l lnesses. The study focused on daily intake of three major sources of flavonoids -- apples, broccoli , and tea.
Of the three sources, only high broccoli consumption was associated with
significant reductions in heart attack
American Journal of Epidemiology May 15, 1999;149:943-949
A study of more than 125,000 healthcare workers found that just one additional daily serving of fruit or vegetables lowered the risk of heart disease by 4%. Vegetables such as spinach , kale , broccoli and fruits such as oranges , grapefruits
particular green leafy vegetables and vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables, against risk for coronary heart disease.
Increased fruit and vegetable consumption was also found to protect people with type 2 diabetes against hear t attack, a potential complication of the disease.
Fruits and vegetables contain myriad compounds that have been linked with improved health. Fiber , potassium , folate , antioxidants
Annals of Internal Medicine June 19, 2001;134:1106-1114
These 2 classes of heart drugs handicap the heart by blocking nerves that control heart muscle.
the blood output of the heart is artificially reduced, causing less oxygen to reach the body’s cells and tissues. The result will be normal blood pressure cuff .
The body is now being forced to go through life with less oxygen than it needs, and organs slowly start wearing out. Premature aging.

Advantages = use the whole vegetable / fruitGreat for fast mealsKeeps insoluble and soluble fibers together
Disadvantages = High speed can break down enzymes, doesn’t separate the soluble from insoluble fibers
The Ultimate JuicerMasticating Juicer with a hydraulic press
Centrifuge Juicer – Bigger so no cutting vegetables / fruits, not as good on leafy vegetables
Masticating Juicer – Have to cut the fruits / Veggies, can generate high heat so be careful, Great for leafy and root veggies
Advantages: low speed, 20% more juice
Disadvantages: Cleaning, have to cut the veggies/fruits

phytochemical = protect cells from damage.
fruit and vegetable juices are good sources of the traditional nutrients. Citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, etc.) provide healthy portions of vitamin C
Carrot juice contains large quantities of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene.
green juices are a good source of vitamin E.
Fruit juices are a good source of essential minerals like iron, copper, potassium, sodium, iodine, and magnesium,
Coconut: Coconut has medium chain triglycerides, Lauric acid -- antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal functions. Capric acid - antimicrobial components. Natural coconut fat in your diet helps normalize your body lipids, protects
against alcohol damage to your liver improves your immune system's anti-inflammatory response.
Cranberries: five times the antioxidant content of broccoli, which means they may protect against cancer, stroke and heart disease.

Lipitor, Mevacor and Pravachol have been found to suppress certain immune system cells known as helper T-cells , according to new research from Switzerland.
Helper T cells Killer T cells Suppressor T cells T4 cells
Helper T cells , the type suppressed by the statin drugs, act by recognizing foreign pathogens and then activating the production of the proper T cells and B cells in response.

Researchers have found a new use for garlic -- killing the antibiotic-resistance disease known as
MRSA. More than 250 people have been successfully
treated. Garlic’s healing properties come from a quickly-
degrading compound called allicin, which is created only when the clove is damaged and two compounds within the plant come together. New
research has focused on a form of stabilized allicin.

Ear infections (also called acute otitis media, or AOM) have generally been considered bacterial diseases, which means that they are usually treated with antibiotics.
But new research indicates that viruses are found in a great many ear infection cases, which could complicate treatment.
Antibiotics have no effect on the viruses found in AOM infections, which means that the standard treatment is at best only partially effective for most cases. However, many cases of AOM heal themselves without antibiotic treatment.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians have therefore recommended avoiding antibiotic treatment in mild AOM cases.
Clinical Infectious Diseases December 1, 2006; 43(11): 1417-1422
Patients suffering from bronchitis who were given a widely prescribed antibiotic did no better than patients who took a low dose of vitamin C, which is known to be ineffective in treating bronchitis.
Antibiotics don't work for acute bronchitis. Now we have strong evidence saying that it shouldn't be used for this purpose.

The skin is the first and main line of defense. Skin cells are rich in keratin, which impedes microorganisms from entering the body. Lightly acidic and oily secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands slow the excessive growth of bacteria.
Gastric acid is a powerful defense for the intestines from pathogens. Few species are able to survive the low pH and destructive enzymes that exist in the stomach.
Saliva and tears contain antibacterial enzymes, such as Lysozyme, which destroy the cellular walls of bacteria.
Intestinal Bacteria (normal flora) compete with one another for food and space, diminishing the probability of pathogenic bacteria multiplying in sufficient numbers to cause illness.
Mucus is another defense, coating the mucous membranes. It catches and immobilizes invading bodies, its composition is deadly to many microorganisms.
Phagocytes = Cells that Eat other cel ls and pathogens
Macrophage = Big cells that eat
Neutrophil ( Bacterial infections): the most abundant type of phagocyte and is always the first to arrive at the scene of infection. The Neutrophil’s do a “respiratory burst” that produces hydrogen peroxide that is a strong oxidizing agent which accomplish destruction of foreign substances and pathogens.
Macrophages: a gigantic cell, that has the capacity to consume many more bacteria than a neutrophil. And can kill viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and tumor cells. With this powerful mechanism, the only reason sickness sti l l occurs is because it could not function ful ly.
Basophil : these cells release histamine and also defending against parasites.
Eosinophil : An important part of defense against parasites.
NK cells defend against Viruses and. NK cells are activated by interferon produced by the adrenals
T cel ls and B cel ls The function of T cells and B cells is to recognize specific antigens, Once they
have identified an invader, the cells generate specific responses that are tailored to maximally eliminate specific pathogens.
B cells respond to pathogens by producing large quantities of antibodies which then neutralize foreign objects like bacteria and viruses. Following activation, B cells and T cells leave a lasting legacy in the form of memory cells. Throughout your lifetime these memory cells will “remember” each specific pathogen encountered, and are able to mount a strong response if the pathogen is detected again.
Immune system at workPhagocytes are cells, such as neutrophils and macrophages , that engulfing destroy pathogens
Phagocytosis is also an important part of the cleaning process after cellular destruction following infection or any other process that leads to cellular death. After the battle, both phagocytes and bacteria can be trapped in a pasty liquid rich in stuctural proteins, known as pus.
Antibody A type of protein made by certain white blood cells in response to a antigen.
Each antibody can bind to only a specific antigen. This helps destroy the antigen. Some antibodies destroy antigens directly. Others make it easier for white blood cells to destroy the antigen
Inflammatory Response (how the body Heals)
Inflammation is stimulated by factors released by injured cells. These factors (histamine, bradicine) sensitize pain receptors and cause dilation of the blood vessels at the scene, and also attract phagocytes, especially neutrophils. Phagocytosis causes the neutrophils to release other factors that call lymphocytes and other phagocytes.
People who take aspirin and Tylenol (acetaminophen) suppress their body's ability to produce antibodies to destroy the cold virus.
Journal of Infectious Disease Dec 1990
A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel voted to ban popular over-the-counter cold products intended for children under the age of 6.
The panel found there was no proof that the medicines eased cold symptoms in children, while there are reports that they have caused serious harm.New York Times October 20, 2007
Researchers looked at data from the Scandinavian Lymphoma Etiology study, which compared over 3,000 patients with NHL with a similar number of healthy patients. There was a "striking" association between antibiotic use and NHL for all subtypes of the disease, especially for those who had been given antibiotics more than 10 times as children.
A Cause, Or an Ef fect? This could mean that the increasing use of antibiotics in the 20th century might also
explain the rise in NHL cases. Also True for NSAIDs There was also an increased risk of NHL for heavy users of non-steroidal anti-
inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This includes ibuprofen drugs such as Motrin and Advil.

“If a lie is told loud enough and long enough people will begin to believe it”
Before the 1990s, U.K. researchers estimated four to five cases of autism per 10,000 people in their country.
2006, the number with autism had escalated one in every 86 children.
2007, researchers at the Cambridge University's Autism Research Center in London released a report estimating that one in every 58 children in the U.K. (not just boys) suffers from "some form of autism disorder
"Atypical patterns of exposure to common childhood infections -- measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox -- have been associated with autism and autistic regression.... A close temporal relationship in the exposure to two of these infections during periods of susceptibility may compound both the risk and severity of autism.... Although historically, these rare patterns of exposure may have accounted for only a small proportion of autism, the widespread use of a combination of the candidate agents in a single vaccine [MMR] may have changed this." 1998 Lancet published a landmark study by Dr. Andrew Wakefield
"One important pattern of infection that may increase the risk of delayed disease is where different viruses interact, either with each other or both interact with the host immune system simultaneously. Virologic data support the possibility of a compound effect of multiple concurrent viral exposures influencing...the risk of autism."earlier study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology
MRSA, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus
MRSA in 2007 caused 18,600 deaths. To put that number into perspective, HIV/AIDS killed 17,000 people that year.
The numbers are even more staggering when you include ALL hospital infections, not just MRSA, as approximately 1.7 million Americans contracted infections during hospital stays in 2007, and a subsequent 100,000 people perished from these diseases, according to the U.S. Center of Disease Control (CDC).
An Irish wildflower could hold the key to wiping out the deadly superbug MRSA. A bright yellow flower known as
inula helenium kills the bacteria, which is resistant to some of the most powerful antibiotics available.
Inula helenium grows wild in west Cork and blossoms in late summer. Another herb, pulsatilla vulgaris, was also effective
against the disease.
When extracts from both plants were tested against a group of 300 staphylococci, including MRSA, inula helenium was
100 percent effective against the superbug. Sources:•The Irish Examiner November 16, 2007
In the UK it would make sense for maggot therapy to be available to patients in the community -- especially since both hospital-based and district nurses find the technique easy to learn. …
Department of Health "The use of maggots can dramatically reduce treatment times compared with conventional therapies, and it is very likely that their use at an early stage would reduce hospital admissions or the need for surgical intervention in the treatment of certain types of necrotic wounds.“ Lancet September 30, 2000; 356: 1174 - 1178
* The majority of flu shots contain 25 micrograms of mercury, an amount considered unsafe for anyone weighing less than 550 pounds!
* October issue of the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine found that vaccinating young children against the flu appeared to have no impact on flu-related doctor visits or hospitalizations during two recent flu seasons. The researchers concluded that "signif icant inf luenza vaccine ef fectiveness could not be demonstrated for any season, age, or sett ing .”
* large-scale, systematic review of 51 studies, published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in 2006, that found no evidence the flu vaccine is any more effective for children than a placebo. The studies involved 260,000 children, age 6 to 23 months.
* There are many studies supporting the hygiene hypothesis, which proposes that acquiring viral infections early in life is not a bad thing. It actually helps build your child’s immune system, drastically reducing the risk for heart disease, allergies, and asthma, as he grows older.

In a report published in Pediatrics, pediatricians concluded that parents often “pressure” them into
prescribing children antibiotics unnecessarily. The Boston Medical Center reported that shockingly
1/3 of doctors admitted giving in to a parents request for an antibiotic---even when the drug wasn’t warranted.
Before the age of seven months, 70% of all children has received their first round of antibiotics.
Aspirin is the second leading cause of death in children every year.
Sept. 1999 issue of Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association, found that taking more than 15 aspirins a week, doubles the risk of developing hemorrhagic stroke, caused by bleeding in the brain.
The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists found that Aspirin and Ibuprofen use are strongly associated with acid reflux disease.
