Protocols for Health

Dear Friends

Can a diversity of fruits and vegetables in one’s diet reduce the risk of developing the number one killer in the world – CVD (Cardiovascular Disease).  Can diet really help?

The UK Women’s Cohort Study analyzed the dietary habits of 30,458 women between the ages of 35-69.  The women answered a 217 – item Food Frequency Questionnaire. The conclusion was that total fruit intake rather than intake of a specific type of fruit is more protective against CVD.

The woman who ate a greater variety of fruits, include berries such as blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries and blueberries, grapes, citrus fruit, pomegranates, strawberries and apples had less cardiovascular disease.  These fruits are rich in polyphenols like flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, procyanidins, sterols, carotenoids, and hydroycinnamic acids (Lai et al., 2015) – the very phytonutrients needed to reduce inflammation in the body and to turn on the longevity genes (Serino & Salazar, 2019).

See Green Facts for more on the longevity genes.

Therapeutic Food Support:

  • No. 7 Systemic Booster:  The New Longevity-  1 tsp daily includes a concentration of 8 fruits and berries, plus greens from cruciferous veggies: broccoli, kale, spinach, and beet. (Along with probiotics and key nutraceuticals).

Suggestions:  Add one tsp No. 7 to your smoothie, or to your shot glass of diluted juice.

Dear Doctor

Aging is characterized by a condition of rising levels of free radicals that generates increasing cellular senescence.

Only recently has aging itself been viewed as a treatable condition, with an etiology related to excessive ROS levels that lead to cellular senescence, a process by which cells enter a permanent state of cell cycle arrest. Although senescent cells lost their proliferative capacity, they still are able to secrete a range of proinflammatory molecules through the senescence associated secretory phenotype (SASP).

Patients with coronary artery disease show increased expression of the proinflammatory molecules MCP-1, IL-6, IL-1β and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), all of which are secreted by senescent cells through the SASP.

In Serino and Salazar’s 2019 review, Protective role of polyphenols against vascular inflammation, aging and cardiovascular disease, they discuss molecular mechanisms by which polyphenols improve anti-oxidant capacity, mitochondrial function and autophagy, while reducing oxidative stress, inflammation and cellular senescence in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and endothelial cells (ECs). They also  discuss the therapeutic potential of polyphenols in reducing the effects of the SASP and the  incidence of CVD.

The following Therapeutic Food protocol makes sense in light of Serino and Salazar’s research. (See also Food Science below)

Therapeutic Food Support:

Suggestions:  Add one tsp No. 7 to your smoothy, or to your shot glass of diluted juice add one tsp No. 7 and swig down the Glucosinolate capsule and 2 capsule of Phyto Power.   Try it for a couple of months and see how you feel.

Food Science:

Lai et al. (2015) reported that total fruit intake (g/day) derived from a 217-item Food Frequency Questionnaire was obtained from 30,458 women (aged 35–69 years) at baseline from 1995–1998., the richest sources of phenolic compounds, correlated with improved cardiovascular health with an estimated 6–7% reduction in deaths from CVDs for every 80 g portion. This study concluded that total fruit intake rather than intake of a specific type of fruit is protective against CVD. In terms of specific types of fruits, commonly researched varieties include berries, such as blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries and blueberries, grapes, citrus fruit, pomegranates, strawberries and apples. These fruits are rich in polyphenols like flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, procyanidins, sterols, carotenoids, and hydroycinnamic acids.

The Therapeutic Food Supplement protocol above provides a rich diversity of high active fruits and vegetables.

Be Regular is back

June 12, 2019

Dear Doctor

We are excited for our Be Regular is back in.  Thank you so much for your patience.  We all have missed it!!!

For those of you new to this product, the Be Regular is a gluten free, global blend of indigenous organic seeds, originating in ancient cultures from all around the world. The five organic seeds provide gentle yet effective fiber for everyday regularity.*

One scoop of Be Regular offers over 7 grams of fiber towards your 25 to 35 grams a day.*  It is organic, vegan, kosher, non GMO, and gluten free.

Therapeutic Food Support:

Be Regular is comprised of organic whole seeds: Amaranth, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Chia and Millet (which some think of as also a grain). The Aztec people developed amaranth; the Incas raised Quinoa, while buckwheat was native in Asia, parts of Europe and the USA. Chia is a revered seed that is native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Millets are a group of indigenous small-seeded grasses, especially known in Africa and Asia but are cultivated and enjoyed all over the world.

Adding a tablespoon or two of Be Regular to your morning shakes, cereals, baked goods, and even soups adds dietary fiber and nutrients for daily regular bowel movements (American Dietetic Association, 2008; Seal & Brownlee, 2015), and contributes positively to a host of health benefits such as cardiovascular health, reduction of fatty liver (van Gijssel et al., 2016; Georgoulis et al., 2014; Grooms et al., 2013, respectively), lasting energy, weight management and much more (de Vries et al., 2016; Albertson et al., 2016; Lambeau et al., 2017).*

Dear Doctor

William C. Roberts, editor in chief of the American Journal of Cardiology, states that the only critical risk factor for atherosclerotic plaque buildup is cholesterol, specifically elevated LDL cholesterol in your blood.  It is called “bad cholesterol” because it’s the vehicle by which cholesterol is deposited into our arteries.  According to Roberts, the optimal LDL cholesterol level is probably 50 to 70 mg/dL.  The population target should therefore be around a total cholesterol level under 150 mg/dL  (Benjamin & Roberts, 2013).

Roberts acknowledges that the Framingham study (1979) and other large studies cite multiple risk factors for developing atherosclerosis— (1) Genetic, (2) Degenerative, (3) Inflammatory, (4) Cigarette smoking, (5) Systemic Hypertension, (6) Diabetes mellitus, (7) Overweight,  (8) Inactivity, (9) Stress, and (10) Cholesterol problem— however,  the only risk factor that is necessary to form plaques is high Cholesterol.

He backs up his contention with the following four facts:

  1. Atherosclerosis is easily produced experimentally in herbivores (monkeys, rabbits) by giving them diets containing large quantities of cholesterol (egg yolks) or saturated fat (animal fat).
  2. Atherosclerotic plaques contain cholesterol.
  3. Societies with high average cholesterol levels have higher event rates (heart attacks, etc.) than societies with much lower average cholesterol levels.
  4. When serum cholesterol levels (especially the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL-C] level) are lowered (most readily, of course, by statin drugs), atherosclerotic events fall accordingly and the lower the level, the fewer the events.

Therapeutic Food Support:

The Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula qualifies for the American Heart Association and Food and Drug Administration “Healthy Heart” seal of approval (FDA, 2002). The suggested daily guideline of two tablespoons contains high concentration of oat beta glucan (10%) for cardiovascular support.
