DISCLAIMER: Per the FDA, Thermography should not be used as the sole device to diagnose or screen for breast cancer or other conditions. Thermography should not be used in place of mammography and is only for use in addition to other diagnostic or screening devices. Use of thermography carries the risks of a delayed or missed diagnosis.

This week’s controversial government study on Mammography created quite a bombshell leaving women confused about what they should do.

You, as my patients, should be very clear as to Mammographic screening of your breasts. I have urged all of you to use Thermography as an adjunct screening tool for breast cancer and confirm with ultrasound and MRI. Mammography for screening is considered by the FDA as the first line of defense but be aware of radiation and compression and the high incidence of false positives. As reported, for every 100 mammograms performed, almost half are false positive and result in further invasive procedures and greatly increased anxiety.

Please remember that on average the life span of a woman from first cancer cell until death is 15 years. The greatest death rates for breast cancer are between ages 40-45 years. It may be advisable to begin screening at 25-30 years of age. In this instance, if you started screening at 40 years, you could miss these early tumors. This would especially affect black women whose cancers occur earlier and are more aggressive.

Thermography has zero dangers or side effects as well as being markedly sensitive and specific. There are minimal false positives. Mammography is considered the first line of defense in diagnosing breast cancer. Thermography offers you a safe and most cost effective technique for breast cancer screening as an adjunct diagnostic tool to Mammography. The most common abnormality found in the breast is a DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU, which is interpreted as STAGE 0 cancer. The great majority of these lesions will never progress to a life threatening invasive cancer and are best left alone. We have been able to literally reverse these lesions back to a normal breast using nutritional intervention, which proves you can reverse this disease process.

The present accepted standard of care results in more biopsies, which lead to lumpectomy or breast conserving surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiation. Men are similarly affected by the standard of care for prostate cancer, which results in surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for the majority of lesions that will never threaten life.

You can reduce your risk of breast cancer and most likely all cancers by 80% with your supplementation of Vitamin D3. To achieve this, however, you must keep your Vitamin D3 level at 50 ng/ml. This equates to about 3000 to 5000 I.U. of Vitamin D3 a day.

To conclude this alert:

1)Give yourself a gift of life – schedule your Thermogram.

2)Take your Vitamin D3, 3000 to 5000 I.U. daily. Measure your blood level twice a year – once in the winter and again in the summer.

I can’t think of a better life insurance policy than this.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS & INFLUENZA UPDATE

The month of October has been designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month but I hope, every day of the year, you are aware of a disease that ultimately affects one in seven women in their lifetime. In keeping with the National Breast Cancer Awareness the Center is offering a $115 discount gift (click here for coupon) those who need to repeat their annual breast exam and for anyone who has never had a Thermogram.

In 1982, the FDA approved Thermography for adjunct screening for breast cancer. With this technology we can detect changes in a breast 6-10 years before mammography and can do this without without exposure to radiation or painful compression. Thermography imaging of the breast is greater than 90% sensitive and specific, i.e., if an abnormality is present, it will rarely miss it.

It is estimated that 84% of women in North America have “Benign Breast Changes”. These changes are now known to increase risks of cancer. The exciting facts are we can reverse these changes through nutritional intervention. Evidenced based experience demonstrates your ability to decrease risks of breast cancer by at least 80% when you keep your blood Vitamin D3 level above 50 ng/ml. The addition of progesterone, iodine, Selenium and I3C/DIM reduces your risks even more.

The message today is: you don’t have to fear the scourge of breast cancer anymore if you will be aware and proactive. The Center’s Program for Women’s Health is ready to assist you. You can also visit our website at www.earlycancerdetection.com.

INFLUENZA ALERT UPDATE

There has been sufficient feedback from patients who have used the Flu Protocol, Vitamin D and sublingual INTA, to confirm its ability to quickly turn off the disease but more importantly to prevent the occurrence when exposed. Review the protocol by CLICKING HERE.

The first experimental trials on volunteers using the newly developed H1N1 influenza virus vaccine have begun in England, Australia and America. England will begin vaccinating the general population before the trials and America will mass vaccinate within 4 days of completing the trials.

What you must know is that there are three different vaccines being prepared. One with Squalene adjuvant, one with another adjuvant and one with no adjuvant. We may not know which vaccine we will be getting. Squalene when injected into skin can cause a rheumatoid arthritis like autoimmune disease. The onset could be delayed for months so no one will suspect disease was caused by vaccine.

I can only try to inform you but you ultimately will have to make the decision unless Government decrees involuntary vaccination.

The most up to date research suggests your susceptibility to contact Influenza is not based upon acquired immunity resulting from previous vaccinations or having had disease earlier, but rather the integrity of your innate immunity. As your nutrition and genetics determine the immune status you can prepare and stack the deck in your favor without taking the vaccine.

You must be tired of me telling you to take the Vitamin D3 but the facts are 2,000-4,000 I.U.’s can protect you against Influenza more effectively than the vaccine. In addition having the Int/Alpha for flu drops will turn off the virus, should you get sick and do it safer and more economically than using Tamiflu.

As soon as schools open the spreading phenomenon will begin. Don’t wait. Be prepared. Order now.

Posted in P&T, Swine Flu

The headline in today’s newspaper read: “SWINE FLU COULD HIT 40% IN U.S.”

The wording of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) was ominous – “In a disturbing new projection, health officials say up to 40 percent of Americans could get swine flu this year and several hundred thousand could die WITHOUT A SUCCESSFUL VACCINE CAMPAIGN AND OTHER MEASURES.”

As we reported earlier, there is something strange about this virus. Influenza almost never occurs in the spring and summer. There is a strong suspicion that this is a man made strain. Nobody should underestimate what could happen when the sun exposure changes in the fall and winter.

In the epidemic of the Spanish Flu millions died. Most of the deaths occurred in the young and healthy population. With the ordinary flu epidemics, it is the old and chronically ill who die. The CDC is recommending multiple shots of both strains because if epidemics hit, it will take down both populations resulting in catastrophic morbidity and mortality.

If vaccine administration is made mandatory there will be a significant number of people who will develop post-vaccinal complications of a neurological disease and possible death. The government is rushing testing and production of the new vaccines hoping to have them ready by October or November.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

1.You can take the vaccine. However, vaccination can be ineffective because of mutation of virus changing the value of the vaccine and you can also develop a post-vaccinal complication.

2.I am strongly recommending everyone to take Vitamin D3, 4000 I.U. daily and keeping in your possession a bottle of 50,000 I.U. capsules that you will take immediately if you are getting sick. The dose is 1,000 I.U. per pound of body weight:

w 50 lb child – 1 capsule = 50,000 I.U.

w 100 lb child or adult – 2 capsules = 100,000 I.U.

w 150 lb child or adult – 3 capsules = 150,000 I.U.

w 200 lb child or adult – 4 capsules = 200,000 I.U.

Take the prescribed dose daily for 5 to 7 days, preferably with something fatty like cream or fish oils in order to increase absorption.

These large doses will block your own cytokines from killing you and will also have an antibiotic and antiviral effect.

3.You should also keep a bottle of INT Alpha for Flu in your possession. There is over 30 years of clinical experience demonstrating the ability of this formula to turn off the Flu. Hundreds of thousands of doses have been used without ever a single side effect.

It can be used prophylactically, one drop sublingually twice daily. However, at first sign of active disease, take one drop every 10 minutes for 4 doses then one drop every 1 to 2 hours until disease is controlled.

There are 200 doses per bottle, enough to treat 2 or more people. It is very stable in both heat and cold temperatures for 1-2 years.

There is going to be a great deal of hysteria when the media begins to report outbreaks. You do not need to panic if you prepare now.

It is official. The World Health Organization has now raised the H1N1 Influenza (Swine Flu) alert to its highest level, classified as a pandemic. The disease has now spread to 74 countries and has proven to be markedly contagious though thankfully not overly deadly.

We all thought this threat would go away but it will now spread to South America, which is currently in their winter season. There is a seasonality to influenza which supports the theory that the sun’s rays no longer converts Vitamin D maximally in our skin during the fall and winter. This so called Swine Flu virus, however, is not following the usual course, which has some authorities, believing the strain was actually created in a laboratory. Either way we cannot drop our guard, as it will surely reappear in the northern hemisphere this fall.

Many of you have heeded my pleas to obtain both the INT/ALPHA for flu and the Vitamin D3 supplements. You are all set. But for the rest of you who have not prepared, you are making a potentially grave mistake. Now is the time to prepare.

Vitamin D3 is doing two things:

Follow the instructions for their use as follows:

1) Take one drop 2 times per day prophylactically. But if exposed, do a rush-one drop every ten minutes for 4 doses and then 1 drop every 1-2 hours until signs and symptoms are controlled. The vial of INT/ALPHA for flu is sufficient for at least 2 people, possibly even 3 or 4 people. It is stable for easily one to two years if kept in the refrigerator.
2) If you maintain your blood level of Vitamin D3 above 45 ng, by taking a daily dose of 2000 I.U.’s to 4000 I.U.’s you will be less susceptible if exposed.
3) If you develop flu like symptoms, immediately take 1000 I.U.’s of Vitamin D3 per pound of body weight, as indicated below. These treatment doses should be taken for a minimum of 3 days.

50 lbs. 50,000 I.U.’s 1 capsule
100 lbs. 100,000 I.U.’s 2 capsule
150 lbs. 150,000 I.U.’s 3 capsule
200 lbs. 200,000 I.U.’s 4 capsule

We have Vitamin D3 50,000 I.U.’s per capsule containing 100 capsules per bottle, enough again to treat your whole family.

For daily maintenance of good health you need to take the regular dose of 2000 to 4000 I.U.’s. (available in both liquid and capsule form). Liquid Vitamin D3 comes in a dropper bottle containing 750 doses. Children can easily use these drops. Each drop equals 2000 I.U.’s. So you would use one drop per two pounds of body weight.

Some of the quickest deaths occur in the young and healthy because the virus sets off an immunologic cascade resulting in pneumonia and rapid death. Vitamin D3 in large doses produces antiviral peptides and also down regulates the acute immune cascade. The INT/ALPHA for flu formula turns off the viral replication. The combination with Vitamin D3 offers you a way of leveling the playing field to keep you alive and healthy.

Now is the perfect time to prepare.

Stopping Heart Attack and Stroke

(It’s More than Cholesterol)

Submitted by Timothy J. Callaghan, M.D. for COEM’s Website

It’s a tragedy! We all know someone who has faithfully gotten an annual physical (including blood tests and EKG) from their doctor, and the doctor has happily reported that the results show no evidence of cardiovascular or other disease. Your friend feels secure, believing that his preventive measures of regular exercise and prudent diet seem to be working well.

Yet, that same person experiences a heart attack or stroke within weeks of seeing his doctor! How could someone be assured that he’s doing well and still get a heart attack or stroke? What went wrong?

This is a question that doctors have long agonized over—but are recently getting more satisfying answers. Beginning in 1948, researchers began a comprehensive study of 5,000 Americans to try to identify and understand cardiovascular disease risk factors. What they found from this now famous Framingham Heart Study was that there is inconsistency between the results of our routine laboratory testing and the incidence of heart disease.

The Framingham study revealed that 80 percent of patients who had a cardiovascular event (heart attack or stroke) showed results from routine blood lipid profile tests for cholesterol, triglycerides, etc., similar to the normal population who did not have cardiovascular disease. This implied that the traditional lipid panel was not capable of being an accurate “key” to determining true risk. In a research study reported in The American Journal of Cardiology, it was demonstrated that the usual “cholesterol” panel was only 40 percent predictive for revealing coronary heart disease. Why?

We now have the answers to the lack of predictability based on annual cholesterol tests. It appears that heart disease has many risk factors other than cholesterol that have not been tested for previously. It also appears that we have not understood that a major culprit in cardiovascular disease is the “soft plaque” in the arteries and not the traditional calcified plaque that was thought to gradually build up and “clog” the artery.

A newer laboratory test called the VAP Cholesterol Test analyzes fantastic new markers to help predict cardiovascular disease. Researchers have “cracked open” the lipid molecules in the bloodstream and found at least 10 new items critical to evaluate heart disease. These include Lp(a) (lipoprotein a), VLDL and VLDL-3 (very low density lipoproteins), Non-HDL (non-high-density lipoprotein), IDL (intermediate density lipoprotein), real LDL (real low density lipoprotein) and real-LDL-C size pattern, remnant lipoproteins, and HDL2 and HDL3 (high density lipoproteins 2 and 3). VAP Cholesterol Test markers, when abnormal, have been found to be “positive” indicators even when traditional markers like total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides are “normal.”

Another accurate marker that can now be evaluated is the homocysteine level. When homocysteine is elevated, the risk of heart attack and stroke has been shown to be three times higher than with normal homocysteine levels.

C Reactive Protein–High Sensitivity is another blood marker that is elevated with any inflammation in the body, but also correlates with an increased risk of heart attack. Another is fibrinogen, a protein normally found in the blood that is key in helping us not bleed to death when we’re injured, but when excessive, increases the risk of clots forming in the bloodstream itself and causing heart attacks or strokes. Low testosterone levels in men, and low levels of the trace mineral selenium may increase the risk of coronary disease by 24 percent.

The ADMA (asymmetrical dimethyl arginic) test measures levels of a chemical that inhibits normal nitric oxide dilation of the blood vessels. When levels are high, researchers have found a 27-fold increase in the risk of heart attack. A high level can also reveal an increased risk of hypertension, erectile dysfunction, and insulin resistance.

Researchers have discovered that bacteria like Chlamydia, H. pylori and dental bacteria are associated with heart disease. Chlamydia has actually been found in the artery plaque and is suspected of increasing plaque formation. Cytomegalovirus and Coxsackie virus are thought to trigger plaque build-up through a complicated mechanism of “molecular mimicry.” Elevated antibody levels to these bacteria or viruses can indicate excessive levels of these harmful organisms and may be an indicator of risk.

Then there are nutrients that we need to help prevent plaque formation in the blood vessels. These include antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids. Evaluating whether or not we have optimal levels of these nutrients can help us know how close we are to obtaining a truly heart-protective diet.

We can take a totally non-invasive look into the arteries and see if plaque is developing years before an EKG or stress test (nuclear or regular) can indicate a problem. This technology entails 64 heart scans taken through various cross-sections of the coronary arteries and analyzed with calcium scoring. It can visualize blockages better than ever before and provides a calcium (plaque) score between 1 and 400. As terrific as this scan is, it is best not done because of the extremely high level of radiation to which you will be exposed. It provides the highest level of radiation of any of the CT scans.

Carotid ultrasound of the carotid arteries can measure the thickness of blood vessel walls, and the thicker and more inflexible the vessel walls, the greater the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Not everyone needs all of these advanced cardiovascular tests, but it is wonderful to know that they are available to help us identify our individual risk factors and understand how to reduce them. These tests are especially important when a person has a family history of heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, dementia, and other increasingly preventable problems. Knowing where our genetic weaknesses may lie can be a great help in avoiding the family cardiovascular disease pattern.

If there are positive test results from any of these new tests, multiple strategies can be used to lower risks. At The Center for Occupational & Environmental Medicine, we use a comprehensive approach including diet changes, nutrient supplementation, intravenous chelation, and medication where necessary. Please see Healthy for Life Weight Loss for information about our very successful weight loss program.

2007 was a great year for us at the Center for Occupational & Environmental Medicine. Many new preventative medicine projects were introduced and made a significant contribution to your health. Most exciting was the addition of the Heidelberg System, which can measure accurately your stomach’s ability to produce hydrochloric acid. You may appreciate my enthusiasm when I tell you how many people were taking Acid Blocking medication only to find their many signs and symptoms were actually coming from not enough acid. It is an old cliche that Disease begins in the gastro intestinal tract; when your gastro intestinal tract doesn’t work nothing works. Substituting hydrochloric acid capsules for the “Purple Pill” (acid blocker) resulted in dramatic changes in health for those patients. If you are one of those acid blocking pill takers you owe it to yourself to find out once and for all whether you should be on them.

These signs and symptoms of low stomach acid will amaze you.

¬Bloating
¬Malabsorption
¬Gas¬Dementia
¬Malnutrition¬Constipation
 ¬Hair loss
 ¬Heart burn/reflux
 ¬Pneumonias, etc.

And all the expected side effects of malnutrition but especially mineral depletion (calcium/osteoporosis; iron/anemia; chromium/diabetes/obesity etc.)

Testing is a simple procedure, done in the early morning while fasting. It involves swallowing a pill sized radio transmitter capsule and after 30-45 minutes you will learn about your stomach’s essential function. For more information call the office 843-572-1600.

COULD STOMACH ACID IMBALANCE BE CAUSING YOUR HEALTH PROBLEMS?

(There’s a Test to Find Out)

 

It takes more than eating organically grown whole foods to stay young and healthy.
You must also have good digestion and assimilation. Foods we eat have to be broken down before they can be absorbed, and the pH balance of the stomach plays an important role in how we break down and process the nutrients. If the acidity of the stomach is imbalanced, then normal digestion and assimilation cannot occur.

 

The normal stomach contains hydrochloric acid, pepsin, mucin and the intrinsic factor. The hydrochloric acid and pepsin initiate digestion and the mucin coats the wall of the stomach.

 

Stomach acid helps pepsin break down proteins such as meats, cheeses, fish, and other foods into amino acids. Your body uses the amino acids to build and repair all of your internal protein structures including muscles, hair and fingernails. If the stomach does not produce enough hydrochloric acid, then it also does not produce enough pepsin and intrinsic factor (the substance necessary for vitamin B12 absorption). Many essential nutrients including B12, iron, calcium, zinc, folic acid, and vitamin C are all

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

poorly absorbed when stomach acid is low. Overall, nutrients from food are under-digested and eventually mal-absorbed by individuals with poor stomach function. The consequences of this mal-absorption are monumental.

Low stomach acid leads to alterations of your intestinal microflora. Friendly intestinal microorganisms are dependent on the natural intestinal pH balance that results when all the digestive organs are working well. Lack of stomach acidity allows unfriendly and dangerous microorganisms, such as Candida albicans and the disease-causing bacteria Clostridium difficile, to enter and overpopulate the gastrointestinal tract.

Low stomach acid may also cause problems outside the GI tract:
1) A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association demonstrated that people on acid blockers have a significantly higher risk of hip fractures caused by poor absorption of calcium.
2) Likewise, low stomach acid causes a four-fold increase in the risk of pneumonias
3) Low stomach acid increases the risk of age-related macular degeneration due to decreased absorption of protective vitamins and minerals

Many people have little or no hydrochloric acid in their stomach. Very often, the main cause of poor digestion and assimilation is a low level of stomach acid (hypochlorhydria). According to a research study conducted in the early 1900’s, fifty percent of people over the age of sixty had significantly low stomach acid.

Many who have symptoms of hyperacidity, such as reflux, may actually have low stomach acid. Doctors don’t usually recognize the seriousness of this problem and make the problem worse by prescribing medications that suppress stomach acid production. This practice makes acid blocking drugs among the most prescribed medicines in the United States. Rarely is stomach acid measured before acid blocking drugs are prescribed, and once prescribed, patients often remain on them for many years. These drugs can make patients feel better temporarily, but turning off the stomach’s acid production results in poor digestion and assimilation of nutrients that are vital for the body’s ultimate health.

Since many of the symptoms of too much acid and little to no stomach acid are the same, how do you know which one you have?
You can only know if you test the acid contents of your stomach. This testing can be done by means of the Heidelberg Capsule Test, a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool for measuring pH levels and detecting imbalances in the digestive tract.
The Heidelberg test is like a window into the digestive system. It tells us about food absorption and digestion by obtaining an accurate measurement of the pH balance of the stomach. The Heidelberg pH Capsule is a high-frequency radio transmitter and pH sensor encapsulated within a special polyacrylate (plastic) covering. The capsule is about the size of a multi-vitamin and is designed to be swallowed. It measures and transmits the pH levels in the digestive system and the re-acidification time of the stomach’s parietal cells. The Heidelberg Capsule system is one of the most valuable tools a doctor can have for safely and accurately determining disorders of digestion. Mal-absorption, stomach gas, belching, bloating, flatulence and irritable bowels can be addressed more thoroughly when the pH of the stomach is monitored. This test will accurately diagnose a patient who may have hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid), hyperchlorhydria (high stomach acid), achlorhydria (no stomach acid), pyloric insufficiency, or heavy mucus.

The Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine is one of the very few clinics in the United States able to perform this highly accurate Heidelberg test to assess the root cause of digestive symptoms.

At the Center, we are committed to bringing you the most advanced and scientifically proven medicine. If you are suffering from fatigue, depression, mal-nutrition, acid reflux, gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, chest pain, or neurological disorders, you may be a candidate for this test. Based on your test results, the doctors will recommend individualized supplementation to help rebalance your stomach pH.

Call The Center to set up an appointment to determine if you are properly digesting and assimilating the foods you eat, so you can prevent all the adverse effects of stomach acid imbalance.

Over the years, I have learned several very powerful secrets to beautiful skin. The first is keeping the skin well hydrated. Yes, the ‘6 to 8 glasses of water a day’ are certainly important. This is especially true as we age because older people tend to stay in a state of dehydration. Using nutrients with hydrating properties can be a great help. Vitamin B5, Pantothenic Acid, is just a great one.

I designed a transdermal cream containing the equivalent of 4000 mg. of Panthenol, which you rub all over your face at night before you go to sleep. You can also put it on again in the morning. Make up can be applied on top of the cream as it soaks into the skin without leaving any film. This hydrating cream is great for both men and women. You may not want to use any make up when you see how great your skin looks.

The movie star, Suzanne Somers, has certainly gotten the message across in her many books that our hormones are vital to aging. Yet we fear that our hormones will increase our risk of breast, uterine and prostate cancers. This fear cannot be evidenced base when you know that these cancers are extremely rare in very young men and women when the normal hormone ranges are at their highest levels.

Remember you want to have the same hormone levels when you are old as when you were young. You may have “normal” levels of a 65-90 year old but ideally you want to be ’20’ again. The only way you can have that is to supplement with estrogens, progesterone, DHA and testosterone. You don’t know what your sex hormone levels are unless you measure them and that is easily done using a comprehensive saliva hormone panel, which you can do at home. Your fountain of youth is but 3 weeks away when you review your levels and decide to supplement them if they are low.

You must never take Estrogen or Testosterone without balancing with Progesterone. To quote Dr. Wilson, “I have never seen a woman get breast cancer if she has high levels of progesterone. NOT ONE.”

The other two secrets to beautiful skin is a well functioning G.I. tract with an adequate bacterial flora, as well as a functioning detoxification system. Probiotics are a critical aid to everyone desiring good health. I recommend Ther-Biotic Complete, which contains 25+ billion CFUs of multi-species probiotics.

What I also learned was toxic pollutants contaminating our bodies play havoc with our skin. This is especially true of heavy metal poisoning and specifically mercury poisoning. When I have chelated patients with severe acne many clear dramatically.
Just as we can measure our hormones, we can measure our body burden of toxic heavy metals. You simply swallow a chelating agent and collect your urine for 6 hours. The laboratory does the rest. You may even notice an immediate lessening of blemishes just with the challenge chelation dose. Continuous chelation will be required over many months to remove mercury from your body if you have a body burden. You may also note a change in your mood, a feeling of overt happiness after just one challenge dose, potentially revealing the cause of two major problems in your life – your skin and your mood.
