Micronutrient Testing and Supplementation Gets 62% of Patients with Hypertension Off Their Medications in 6 Months

Vibrant ProduceWhat if most patients with hypertension (high blood pressure) could get well and no longer need medications? Dr Houston at the Hypertension Institute in Nashville, TN, published work  in the June 2010 journal “Therapeutic Advances in Cardiovascular Disease”, on “The role of cellular micronutrient analysis, nutraceuticals, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals in the prevention and treatment of hypertension and cardiovascular disease”.  

In their work those who replaced micronutrient deficiencies, and high dose therapy of selected nutraceuticals in combination with optimal diet, exercise, and weight management,  achieved goal levels of blood pressure in 62% of the hypertensive population in 6 months. This allowed them to completely taper off their medications.

These health benefits extend to reduced stroke and heart attacks, as well as ending organ damage and improving quality of life.  These same nutrient benefits can help virtually all chronic diseases, as there is a common link between nutritional deficiencies and impaired methylation, which affects the body’s ability to get toxins out of the body, proper reading of our genetic code, and proper enzyme and neurotransmitter functions. 

I recommend to anyone suffering from any disorder to get Spectracell Micronutrient testing and then optimize cellular function by replacing those nutrients that are below optimal levels.  Watch the return of your health to youthful energy and vitality.

Key Do’s and Don’ts of the SCD (Specific Carbohydrate) or GAPS (Gut Psychology Syndrome) Diet

ProduceSCD (Specific Carbohydrate) or it’s modified GAPS (Gut Psychology Syndrome) Diet:

If you are going to go to all the trouble of making huge diet changes, why not go all the way and address all the potential issues?  This is what I believe the GAPS diet does. 

Dairy: If and only if there is no sensitivity or allergy to dairy, then on GAPS, you would only allow fermented yogurt, sour cream and kefir (homemade, natural, organic). Clarified butter (ghee) is usually OK, and as the gut heals, organic, unsalted butter is fine. Eventually, certain cheeses are OK.

Meats and Fish: OK.  Best boiled or slow cooked so easier to digest. Avoid meats that have been commercially altered (deli and lunch meats, ham, hotdogs, sausage)

Eggs:  Initially, and if there are food sensitivities, avoid or just eat the yolks. If there are no sensitivities or allergies, then eggs are OK.

Fruits: All are OK.  Fruit may be best in moderation when there is bacterial overgrowth/dysbiosis,  and best at times other than main meals. Only use home-fresh juices.

Vegetables: Avoid the starches, eat fresh or frozen, and organic. Not canned. French artichoke, asparagus, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, cucumber, celery, eggplant, garlic, green beans, onions, kale, lettuce, mushrooms, parsley, peas, peppers, pumpkin, green beans, squash, spinach, tomatoes, turnips, watercress, and zucchini are all great!. Only introduce raw when the gut has healed.

Nuts and Seeds: Most of these are OK. Almonds,  brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, peanuts, pumpkin seeds,  sesame seeds, walnuts, etc.  can all be made into nut butters. Only add salt.

Beans: Some beans may be OK, such as white/navy, lima, and lentils. The rest are too starchy and these may need to be added to the diet later.

Sweetener: Use HONEY! The cold-pressed honey is the best.  Avoid all other sugars and sweeteners.

Drinks: Water, water with lemon, fresh juices, almond milk, coconut milk. For adults, weak tea or coffee. If it is herbal tea, try to obtain it from single fresh herbs.

Oils: Cook with animal drippings/fat, butter, ghee or (at low heat) coconut oil.  If you are adding it to salads, use cold-pressed olive, flax, or avocado oils.

Any Brain Related Symptom? Think Something Is Wrong In Your GI Track (Gut-Brain Connection)

hippocratesThe Gut-Brain Connection has been known since Hippocrates (460-370 BC) stated that “all diseases begin in the gut”.  The problems that end up presenting as neurological or brain issues, include autism, ADD, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and all manners of psychiatric diseases and disorders, learning challenges, developmental delays, language disorders, dyslexia, dyspraxia, schizophrenia, and behavioral issues.  We now know that our immune system (hence infections) may be related to the GI track, and allergies, eczema, and asthma, just for starters!  

The problems can be the result of the wrong bacteria colonizing the gut and resulting in nutrient deficiencies (some of our key vitamins are made by certain probiotics/good bacteria in our intestines) or toxins produced by the wrong bacteria that shouldn’t be there in the first place. Problems can be due to damage to the stomach lining, reducing the acid that is needed to start the digestive process and the intrinsic factor needed for B-12.  In the small intestine, there can be damage to the villi and brush boarder (micro-villi) which results in poor absorption of nutrients, mal-absorption of toxins, partially digested proteins, and foods that then cause food sensitivities or allergies as they interact with the immune system. 

For our most severely affected children, with autism for example, most parents know all too well that something is wrong in the GI track, with diarrhea and  constipation being common, and foods problematic with children refusing most foods.  The gluten-free, casein-free (GFCF) diet has received much attention as it frequently, in up to 40% of the children, will cause a huge improvement for these conditions.  Sadly though, the improvement is limited and sometimes not lasting.  There’s an important reason for this. While removing gluten and casein will eliminate those proteins and the direct negative effects they have on the brain, it does nothing to repair the damaged lining of the intestinal track, and does nothing to change the bacterial colonies that are a major cause of the problem.

A pediatrician by the name of  Dr Sidney Haas, working from the 1920’s to 1950’s, came up with a nutritional program that significantly removes grains, starches, and complex sugars (disaccharide’s and polysaccharides) from the diet. This diet was at that time used primarily for those with celiac disease. This diet was later popularized by biochemist Elaine Gottschall, who wrote the book “Breaking the Vicious cycle”, and who for decades promoted this type of diet to heal Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD- Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis). Countless families with autistic children or other severe GI issues have benefited from this approach. 

I am particularly grateful to Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD., for her book “Gut and Psychology Syndrome”.  Here, the complex reasons most of these brain related disorders start in the gut are explained and she outlines a very straightforward way to get going on the path of healing.  This is a must read for anyone who has a child or family member with any of the conditions mentioned-thus for all of us!  Blogs to follow on some of those details, but make no mistake; we will have to clean up our diet and take the right supplements and probiotics to get back health the way it is supposed to be.  It’s also perhaps a most important read and topic for anyone who is planning to have children, as it is so much easier to prevent gut problems than it is to try to fix them.  

While you’re learning, start with eating only organic foods and cut back or completely stop consuming refined flour and sugars.  Just use honey for sweetness, and absolutely no artificial sweeteners.
