"Do Not Eat" List
Terry Wahls, professor of medicine, 'healed' her MS symptoms and got out of her wheel chair. Level 1
LEVEL 1: Dr. Terry Wahls learned how to properly fuel her body. Using the lessons she learned at the subcellular level, she used diet to limit her MS symptoms
and get out of her wheelchair. Uploaded on Nov 30, 2011.
Her diet research recommended bright colored
vegetables and berries, grass fed organ meats,
sea weed for the iodine and selenium and no
gluten, no dairy, no grain.
Her diet reversed her multiple sclerosis in 9
months so she could ride her bike.
EAT TO FEED YOUR MITOCHONDRIA!!
PLEASE WATCH HER PRESENTATION!
In 2001, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, Dr. Wahls went to Cleveland Clinic for the best ever care. She took the chemotherapy and drugs and got no better until she did her own research and changed her diet. Nine months later she was riding a bicycle. Dr. Terry Wahls, MD, medical doctor is another proud MEDICAL WARRIOR!
Powering the Cell: Mitochondria
Uploaded on Oct 4, 2010, 3 minutes (for educational purposes) Level 4
Together Harvard University and XVIVO developed this 3D animation journey for Harvard's undergraduate Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the microscopic world of the mighty mitochondria (blue 'submarine like' forms with a double layer of membranes). The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) -- mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. ATP is produced by the mitochondria.
This piece is the second in a series of award winning animations XVIVO is creating for Harvard's educational website BioVisions at Harvard. The first program, Inner Life of the Cell, received international acclaim and can be seen both on our website and the BioVisions site.
MITOCHONDRIA- GMOs- GLYPHOSATE(Round-Up)
In the featured video, Jeffrey Smith interviews Dr. Alex Vasquez, M.D., Ph.D., author of about 100 papers and 15 scientific books, and Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a Senior Research Scientist at MIT and author of about 200 papers, about the impact of glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup — on your mitochondria.
As noted by Jeffrey, this is a very important topic, as mitochondrial dysfunction is an underlying foundational element of most diseases. See buttons below.
REVIEW: Level 4 This is more than a simple ebook: DrV's "Mitochondrial Nutrition for Optimal Health and Performance" provides information within an overall context, links to videos (including more than 8 hours of Dr Vasquez's seminar presentations and instructional tutorials), links to full-text articles,
and a complete mitochondrial protocol, including doses commonly used by doctors when treating adult patients.
This "Streamlined Digital Companion"
provides easy access to the
(including mitochondrial dysfunction
and endoplasmic reticulum stress)
as contextualized within the full
clinical protocol published in
Inflammation Mastery (discounted
black/white printing) and Functional
Inflammology (full-color printing);
the associated presentation slides
are included in the book Mitochondrial
Nutrition, 2nd Ed. $9.00 Kindle edition.

MITOCHONDRIAL SUPPORT: LEVEL 1 + 2
Both Mg++ and thyroid are needed to keep your mitochondria working. Below from two doctors who carried on their mentors focused work: Dr. Dean on the shoulders of Mildred Seelig,MD, PhD 's magnesium studies; and Dr. Mark Starr who learned from Broda Barnes, MD about curing his own back pain acquired from a motorcycle accident before he went to medical school using iodine and USP thyroid.
MAGNESIUM Saves your Mitochondria! LEVEL 1
Magnesium moves your muscles, saves your heart and helps stop seizures in pregnant patients.
"This important book brings to light an often overlooked but central factor in some of the most prevalent and serious disorders that affect Americans today: magnesium deficiency. Written by a medical doctor and researcher who is considered to be the world's leading expert on the actions and uses of this vital mineral, The Magnesium Factor explains how magnesium deficiencies develop, why they are so widespread, and how they translate into metabolic disruptions that
ultimately threaten the health of virtually
every bodily system." It is required for
350 enzyme reactions. Everyone with
healthy kidneys needs Mg++ because
our soils are depleted from over farming.
Dr. Seelig's research is very informative
-mind boggling for me.
Here is Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, a student of Seelig's, in an excellent Dr. Mercola's presentation, who
will tell you everything practical you need to
know to help yourself since most medical
doctors were never taught that magnesium
is a 'hidden' required intra-cellular element
found inside all our muscles. We need to
take it regularly as a supplement. Dr. Dean
has a long list of magnesium deficiency
symptoms. You can scan it to find your
own symptoms. She clearly explains drug/Mg++
interactions and drug induced Mg++ deficiency. Good reads!
[As an obstetrician, I used to tell pregnant ladies to take calcium for leg cramps when we should have had them use oil of magnesium spray over their muscles. At least we were smart enough to use magnesium sulfate to stop the seizures in pre-eclampsia]
HYPOTHYROIDISM - TYPE 2 -'Sub clinical hypothyroidism' Level 3
Dr. Starr had chronic back pain from his accident. He took a pain fellowship and found his cure. It turns out that he, his mother and brother all had genetic hypothyroid disfunction which responds to dessicated thyroid and not T4 or T3. He found that up to 40% of the US population may carry this defect which is responsible for multiple inflammatory symptoms and pain.
Now he is starting up a pain clinic in Arizona just like his mentor, Dr. Barnes. Barnes' clinic followed his patients for 30 years and found positive unexpected improvements in their health by treating their 'hypothyroidism-type 2' with dessicated thyroid but not with T4 and T3. There is a controversity between the NDs (naturopathetic doctors) and the MDs (traditionally trained allopathetic doctors) about which thyroid medication is more functional.
Dr. Starr is another Medical Warrior for finally finding a cure for his post traumatic chronic back pain from his genetic 'subclinical hypothyroidism'.
GENETIC 'SNIPS' are diseases that run in your family.
Sickle cell anemia, Tay-Sachs, eye color, your body's ability to process certain foods and drugs are controlled by your genes. There are 23 pairs of genes, one of each pair is from your biological mother and the other is from your biological father. All of your cells have mitochondria (ATP -energy makers) that you got from your mom. Your genes 'live' inside the nucleus of the cell. Dr. Lipton calls the nucleus with its DNA, your 'gonads' because the only function of the nucleus is cell reproduction. A cell can live without it's nucleus!
23 and me.com, for $200 and a tube of saliva, will sent you a complete report on your health issues, ancestory, and a complete profile of both pairs of your 23 or more genes. Your information is 'secure'. You can take it to a Naturopathic doctor who knows how to interpret your findings and make personalized health care recommendations. There is also a online service available to explain your results, which I recommend. After I did my dna testing, I ordered (and paid for) my children to do theirs. It was medically informative for us but it did not locate the site on the gene with their artistic 'gift'.
The ($99) www.http://dna.ancestry.com/ is limited to learning your family tree information. Ancestry is NOT a health resource listing.
LEVEL 1: WHEAT: Bill, the cardiologist and David, the neurologist both agree: our American wheat is making our heart, brains and immune system very sick. After eating our hybridized wheat, Advanced Glycation End products (AGE) are produced, useless debris, which accumulate as 'glump' destroying normal tissues functions.
These are practicing physicians who can think outside the bread box and cereal bowls. Hear their wisdom.
Level 4: 'Over 200 million Americans consume food products made of wheat every day. As a result, over 100 million experience some form of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes to high blood sugar to unattractive stomach bulges preventative cardiologist William Davis calls "wheat bellies."
According to Davis, that excess fat has nothing to do with gluttony, sloth, or too much butter: it's due to the whole grain wraps we eat for lunch.
After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain health after giving up American produced wheat, Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity
epidemic-and that elimination of wheat
is key to dramatic weight loss and
In national bestseller, Dr. Davis
exposes the harmful effects of
what is actually a product of genetic
tinkering and agribusiness being sold to the American public as "wheat"―and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to navigate a new wheat-free lifestyle.'
Vitamin D Lowers Overall Mortality Risk
""It's no surprise then that the Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports an association between vitamin D and overall mortality risk. In one 54-month long study involving more than 422,800 healthy adults, those who were most deficient in vitamin D had an 88 percent increased risk of death from any cause.
[Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to a variety of illnesses, including heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, cognitive decline, Alzheimer's disease, infectious diseases, and several deadly cancers. This includes cancers of the breast, colon, prostate, ovaries, esophagus, lymphatic system, and even melanoma".]
"Primary prevention of cancer, rather than expanding early detection or improving treatment, will be essential to reversing the current upward trend of cancer incidence worldwide,' the researchers wrote.
'This analysis suggests that improving vitamin D status is a key prevention tool.'" MERCOLA REPORTS
