Experts Reveal What You Need to Know.
"From light bulbs, dental fillings and mascara to toxic toys, we all suffer from everyday exposure to dangerous toxic metals," said Isaac Eliaz, M.D., L.Ac., M.S. and the lead researcher of the study. "This report of five case studies confirms that Modified Citrus Pectin combined with alginates is both safe and effective and has been proven to significantly address toxic heavy metal burden in patients with a number of different health conditions. The new clinical results can truly impact what is believed to be an epidemic of toxic pollution of the body with heavy metals."
Isaac Eliaz, MD, is a respected author, lecturer, researcher, product formulator and clinical practitioner. He has been a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine since the early 1980s. Eliaz is a frequent guest lecturer on integrative medical approaches to health, immune enhancement, and cancer prevention and treatment. He has also taught several courses on Traditional Chinese Medicine for medical doctors and licensed acupuncturists. As an innovative formulator of dietary supplements, Eliaz developed and currently holds the patent for several of his unique herbal formulations.
There’s still no cure for cancer. But new research looks promising. Because of its unique molecular structure, Modified Citrus Pectin, or MCP (of the correct molecular weight and size), can easily enter the bloodstream and work throughout the body to fight cancer and address numerous other serious diseases and health concerns. For example, MCP is a powerful yet gentle natural chelator, proven to bind to and remove harmful heavy metals and environmental toxins from the body without affecting essential minerals, as many chelation therapies do. MCP is also a powerful immune modulator, proven to boost immune cells and strengthen immune function. First, let me explain a little bit about a molecule within the body called Galectin-3 (normally present in small amounts in healthy people). Groundbreaking new studies show that excess galectin-3 molecules have a direct involvement in the process of chronic inflammation and subsequent fibrosis (uncontrolled scar tissue build up). Research shows that elevated levels of galectin-3 molecules in the body promote the growth and spread of cancer. Here’s where MCP comes in: it is the only proven natural galectin-3 “blocker,” proven to bind to and block harmful galectin-3 molecules on the surface of cancer cells. This prevents them from growing, creating new blood supplies to nourish themselves (a process called angiogenesis) and metastasizing.
Of the various approaches to dealing with blood glucose levels, postprandial (after eating) management techniques are among the more interesting. This does not deny the value of such alternatives as diet and exercise; stimulation of insulin production; improvement of insulin sensitivity; and increasing levels of adiponectin, a protein produced by fat cells that may play an important role in the development of obesity and insulin-resistant diabetes. This article, however, will focus on postprandial options. “Postprandial glucose management is the key to controlling risks due to diabetes,” states R.V. Venkatesh, managing director of the Gencor Pacific Group (Anaheim, CA). He cites studies showing that postprandial hyperglycemia is closely correlated to elevated glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C) levels. HbA1C provides a measure of the degree by which hemoglobin is glycosylated. Glycosylation is the enzymatic process that attaches glycans to proteins, lipids or other organic molecules in red blood cells. This glycosylation, linked to postprandial hyperglycemia, “is irreversible, and it leads to vascular problems, increasing risks of cardiovascular disease,” says Venkatesh.
Doctors are handing out more pharmaceutical drug prescriptions than ever, a practice that has prompted new drug-issuing guidelines and a call for more conservative prescribing. The new guidelines, published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine, call for physicians to think beyond drugs, treat underlying causes, and focus on prevention instead of reaching for the prescription pad right away. In addition, the recommendations ask doctors to only prescribe one new drug at a time, to monitor the patient closely for harmful side effects and to be generally skeptical of new drugs. "Avoid seduction by elegant molecular pharmacology; beware of selective drug trial reporting," the guidelines warn. In other words, be an old-school doc. We're not saying all pharmaceutical drugs are bad. In fact, many are lifesavers. But doctors could also ease many patient ailments by suggesting natural remedies that have been used for centuries with fewer side effects.
Cancer is an insidious disease that often finds ways to defeat the most advanced treatments. As a result, the scientific and medical communities have become increasingly aware that a multi-pronged approach is the best way to beat cancer. On June 16-17, at the Second International Congress on Complementary Oncology in Munich, Germany, integrative medicine pioneer Isaac Eliaz, MD joined leading experts in the field of complementary oncology. During his visit, he shared research advancements demonstrating how integrative therapies can boost our abilities against cancer. "It was a privilege to speak to such a receptive audience at the Germany International Congress on Complementary Oncology. This conference provides a wonderful opportunity to share important information on integrative treatments and learn about new strategies to defeat cancer," says Dr. Eliaz. "Having the opportunity to give two separate presentations on each day of the congress allowed me to cover a wider array of important topics."
Whether you’re a victim of illness or boozy overindulgence, a suddenly watery mouth – atop of a queasy stomach – is never a sign of good things to come. When the drool pools, you know what’s up: your stomach contents. Literally. It’s not going to look pretty. And afterward, you’re not going to feel pretty. But salivating before vomiting runs counter to our basic understanding of slobber. Shouldn’t that oral reaction only accompany the scent, sight, promise or actual consumption of tasty morsels? Actually, it’s all part of the same digestive chain reaction – a chemical concoction involving your mouth and your gastric juices, the fluid generated within your gut to help your body dissolve chewed food. “The body is attempting to solve the problem of whatever is causing the nausea and (in a sense) digest it,” said Dr. Isaac Eliaz, who blends Western medicine with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine – an approach known as “integrative medicine.”
More than 26 million children and adults in the United States live with Type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and experts say as many as 79 million more have prediabetes -- a condition where elevated blood glucose levels raise your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. So how can you avaoid or reverse prediabetes? Start by asking your doctor for fasting plasma glucose (FPG), AIC and oral glucose tolerance (OGT) tests; then follow these expert recommendations for staying diabetes free.
The prostate is an odd, walnut-sized organ at the base of the pelvis below the bladder. When functioning properly, most men don't even know it's there. On the other hand, men with a prostate issue think of little else. Conditions like prostate cancer, benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatitis can cause pain and discomfort, and dramatically reduce quality of life.
