Sugar poisons your blood!

At this time of the year we probably don't want to hear this but Christmas is the time when
we consume excess sugar, in drinks, baking, and sweets in general.

The drinking of acidic sugary beverages like soda pops may increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease, suggests new research. Although the exact mechanisms aren't known, the symptoms of obesity and diabetes are both associated with higher incidences of Alzheimer's.

Ling Li and her colleagues tested whether high sugar consumption in an otherwise normal diet would affect Alzheimer's progression.They used a genetic mouse model that develops Alzheimer's-like symptoms in adulthood, and over a 25 week period supplemented the regular, balanced diet of half the animals with 10% sugar water. Afterwards, they compared the metabolism, memory skills (by means of various mazes) and brain composition of the regular and sugar-fed mice.The acidic sugar-fed mice gained about 17% more weight than controls to buffer the excess acidity, had higher cholesterol levels, and developed insulin resistance. These mice also had worse learning and memory retention and their brains contained over twice as many amyloid acidic plaque deposits, an anatomical hallmark of Alzheimer's.Although the researchers were not certain if the increased mental impairment resulted specifically from the higher sugar intake or higher calories in general, these results to highlight the potential risk of ingesting any form of the acid called sugar. They note that the human equivalent of the mouse diet would be roughly 5 cans of soda pop per day, although since mice have a higher metabolism, it may actually take less sugar intake in humans.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, at the pH MiracleLiving Center, "Alzheimer's is a direct result of dietary and metabolic acids fermenting or spoiling brain cells. Any sugar, including sucrose, fructose,maltose, dextrose, etc., have the potential to spoil or breakdown healthy cells, including brain cells leading to dementia.""The cure for dementia, including Alzheimer's is to maintain the alkaline design of the body and especially the brain. Sugar is an acidic poison that rots the brain. The breakdown products of sugar are acetylaldehyde and ethanol alcohol, two very strong nuero-toxins. If you want to have healthy blood, a healthy brain and a healthy body then you must stay away from eating or drinking any form of sugar," states Dr. Young.

Yes, it's your choice as to how much you indulge this Christmas, however, we want it to be happy for years to come!!

What is Live Cell Blood Analysis?

I get asked this question quite frequently. So today I will try to give you an overview
of my work with the blood.
Nutritional Live Cell Blood Analysis (NLBCA) involves he examination of a fresh drop of living blood under a high-power video-microscope that has a closed circuit video system. This projects the microscopic image onto a computer screen for simultaneous viewing by both the technician and the client. It is technically referred to as Dark field-Microscope Wet-Mount Examination of a Peripheral Blood Smear.

This is an excellent means of viewing by microscope the red blood cells, various types of white blood cells, platelets, and blood plasma, just as they function in the body. This analysis is a screeening test, using darkfield, 3 dimensional DIC, phase contrast and brightfield microscopy for the purpose of observing various conditions of your blood.

A drop of blood is taken from your finger and placed on a microscope slide for viewing. This drop of blood is magnified 1,000 times and then as a trained examiner, I can make observations as to the presence of: (yeast, fungus, parasites, and bacteria) active somewhere in your body, also damaged cells, cholesterol crystals, and uric acid crystals can then be identified.
The size and shape of red blood cedlls indicate nutritional deficiences, digestive problems, absorption problems, and the damaging effects of free radicals. Organ malfunction is also evident in this analysis.

This analysis is also excellent for determining whether the supplements you are taking
are benefiting your body.

The holidays are fast approaching, you may already be feeling the effects of all the planning and partying. If you want to stay balanced, relaxed and calm, it's necessary every so often to step back and decompress.
Treat yourself to a massage, meditate,
watch a movie, one that relaxes you and inspires you. Remember “things” will get
done – if they don’t it doesn’t matter!

Do you find that the demands on your time are overwhelming, don't be afraid to politely say "no" when someone asks you to do something. Learn your limits. You can't do it all and you shouldn't feel guilty about it. Be a little selfish once in a while by scheduling "me time" - it will help keep you in touch with yourself during the season ahead.

Watch your diet. Cut back as much as you can on “sweets”-- they stress the body. Over indulgence, whether it’s food or drink (the alcoholic kind) will make you tired. Drink lots of water --good water as alkaline as possible.
Get a little exercise –a nice walk will do. Embracing the Holiday Spirit is being who
you are with joy and grace.
