THE MAMMOGRAM CONTROVERSY

This article was sent as a Health Alert to established patients who are familiar with our Center and our services. If you are a prospective or new patient, information included here may not be pertinent to your health at this time. We invite you to learn more about our comprehensive treatment approach.

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.

We have received several emails and calls regarding your use of the Flu Kit. What we are hearing is that some of you are responding initially, only to exacerbate in hours up to 1-2 days later.

The influenza virus replicates every 90 minutes; which means you have to use your drops at least every one and a half hours. However, this may still not be enough for this rapidly spreading virus.

I therefore, urge all of you to please carry your INTA Flu drops with you. You must use them at the first sign you are getting sick. People describe one minute they are well and in a few more minutes are feeling very sick with sore throat, chest pressure headache and whole body achiness.

If you wait several hours until you get home to start your drops, you may be too late to turn off the disease. The drops are very stable and do not need to be kept in the refrigerator.

Let’s review the best protocol to use:

1. Swallow the Vitamin D3 50,000 I.U. capsules according to your weight, 1000 I.U. per pound of body weight.
a) 150 lbs. = 3 capsules or 150,000 I.U.
b) 200 lbs. = 4 capsules or 200,000 I.U.
Take the larger dose rather than under dosing. For example, if you weigh 125 lbs use three capsules; 80 lbs take two capsules. Use one drop per two pounds (2000 I.U.) of liquid D3 for children under 50 pounds.

2. Begin immediately to take one drop of the INT Alpha for Flu every 10 minutes for 4 doses. If you are not overtly better after the initial 4 drops, repeat the rush of another 4 doses; one drop every 10 minute.

3. Next, start the booster regimen of one drop every 90 minutes until bedtime and if awake, continue throughout the night.

4. If you are still sick when awakening on day two, do another rush of 4 doses (step 2), followed every 90 minutes with booster dose (step 3).

5. You cannot overdose on drops. So continue with rushes or boosters for as long as it takes to terminate the disease.

If the H1N1 vaccine becomes available in your community, you must decide whether to take it. Many authorities are discouraging vaccine use. This may be one situation where you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I personally feel that it may be better to take Vitamin D3 4000 to 6000 I.U. daily until the flu epidemic stops and to use your Flu kit if you should get sick. (Please note the increase from previous alerts.) The more important question is whether to vaccinate your children. Whatever you decide, be sure to also give your children Vitamin D3.

Should you need more kits, you may place your order here.

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.

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.

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.

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.

For years, environmental physicians have been taught by dentists that “Disease begins in the mouth or in the dentist’s office.” We have heard over and over again that silver mercury amalgams, root canals and cavitations were making us all sick. Although indoctrinated with this information I am not sure we truly believed it. But something recently happened that is changing my opinion.

Last week, one of my patients brought me the book, “Am I Dead? or do I just feel like it.” by Fred Hughes, which she asked me to read. She has Parkinson’s disease and literally left no stone unturned to find help in reversing her disease. The book describes the work of a Robert H. Dowling whose thesis is that cancer always occurs on the side of the body where oral pathology occurs. He states without exception that breast cancer occurs on the same side as the oral lesion. This observation was based on using thermography of the breasts and face. If this observation is not enough to awe you, he goes on to report that most neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, ALS, Alzheimer’s and MS are associated with the RIGHT SIDED oral disease. The only way he believes to treat cancer and these neurodegenerative diseases is remove the presence of the oral pathology. There is also the corollary- to prevent these diseases, do not inflict any of these oral diseases by using root canals, silver-mercury amalgams and causing cavitations at sites of dental extractions especially wisdom teeth.

What is of special importance to us is that the center has, to my knowledge, the only thermography equipment in the state of SC. We are doing breast, thyroid and peripheral artery thermography but up until now, have not looked for oral disease even though it is so easy to do. This has now changed and we are adding thermography of the mouth to every breast exam we do and will certainly look for oral disease on every patient presenting with neurodegenerative disease.

The question we are all asking: “is this data real?” I have personally heard Hal Huggins, author of several books on dangers of mercury amalgams and root canals tell a woman with breast cancer that if she wanted to live, she needed to pull out every root canal in her mouth. I know she survived. Dowling insists that unless you correct the oral pathology you will never be free of a reoccurrence.

It is important for my readers to understand how the oral pathology influences or causes cancer. Genetics loads the gun but the environment pulls the trigger. There are chemical triggers like the P53 gene that induces a cell to die a natural death rather than undergo a malignant transformation. The toxicity that comes from root canals and other oral pathology suppresses the good P53 gene thus promoting cancer. Other good genes are also down regulated or suppressed while up regulating bad genes resulting in cancerous cellular changes.

As it is so easy to do thermography of the mouth, I am asking all of our patients who have undergone breast thermography to add testing of their mouth to see if oral pathology from root canals, amalgams and cavitations exist. If present, we will strongly recommend consultation with a biological dentist. This recommendation also applies to any patient with a neurodegenerative disease. Using our present treatment protocols, we have been able to reverse abnormal breast pathology. If we correct any oral pathology, would we be able to reverse breast and neurodegenerative diseases even more effectively? This is a challenge we can’t afford to not try.

The center will offer thermography of the mouth for $75. For more information, you may call the office to set up your appointment at 843-572-1600.

It took me many years in the practice of medicine to realize that we get many of our chronic diseases from chronic malnutrition. Whether it’s heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis or obesity our increased susceptibility comes from deficiencies of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.

If malnutrition is the cause of all these diseases then nutrition could also be the treatment. A few simple examples will support this concept.

Our Center has been doing breast thermography for 5 years. We have been able, over and over again to reverse the pathologic breast changes seen on a thermogram using intense nutritional intervention. Japanese women have the lowest incidence of breast cancer in the world because their diets are high in iodine. The corollary is also true. American women have the highest levels of breast cancer because they have the lowest. (0.5 mg. vs. 13.8 mg.) Does this mean if we would only increase the iodine in our daily diet we could prevent and even treat breast cancer? YES. Fibrocystic disease of the breast is unequivocally caused by iodine deficiency and can be reversed over 6 to 9 months by supplementing iodine. Also in general, countries with the highest levels of Selenium in their soil have the lowest evidence of all cancers.

The second example is that of this country’s number one killer- Heart Disease. Could it be that a deficiency of Vitamin K2 may be the cause and not cholesterol and fats in our diet? I was overwhelmed by the research from the Netherlands that demonstrated how Vitamin K2 pulled the plaque out of our arteries and did it in a matter of several weeks. Again, the Japanese and pacific islanders have the lowest incidence of heart disease because they eat NATTO, fermented soy, the greatest source of Vitamin K2.

A study done on a large population in Rotterdam revealed that 45 mcg. of Vitamin K2 prevented heart disease. This is why I urged all of my patients to take a single 90 mcg. capsule of MK7 (Vitamin K2). Does this mean that if we would only add a source of Vitamin K2 we could reduce our risk of deadly heart disease? Again, the answer is yes. The second part of the Vitamin K2 story is that when the plaque is pulled out of the arteries it goes back into the bones and reverses osteoporosis. A disease affecting a majority of women but also many men.

And finally if you haven’t heard it from me many times before, Vitamin D3, the sunshine vitamin, may be the panacea that both prevents and treats our worst degenerative diseases. These include almost every disease that you can mention from heart disease, cancer, MS, diabetes, and the whole spectrum of autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Scleroderma and Rheumatoid Arthritis. So what do I want you to take away from this medical alert? None of us should be foolish enough not to supplement our diets with these 4 basic nutrients:

1)Iodine
2)Selenium
3)Vitamin K2 as menaquinone 7
4)Vitamin D3
There are around 44 essential nutrients that your body requires but for our generation these 4 are dynamite!

These are tough times economically but I cannot think of a more cost effective way to maintain our health than through these few nutrients.

If you are a prospective or new patient, information included here may not be pertinent to your health at this time. We invite you to learn more about our comprehensive treatment approach.

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.

If you are a prospective or new patient, information included here may not be pertinent to your health at this time. We invite you to learn more about our comprehensive treatment approach.

I am encouraged by your response to our alerts regarding H1N1 Influenza. If you are following the news, there are more and more cases occurring especially in the Northeast. The cold and rainy weather may explain this phenomenon as Influenza is usually gone by spring.

Your INT Alpha or flu extract should go into the refrigerator and will remain effective for at least 2-3 years.

Vitamin D may be your most effective nutrient for prevention. Please read this next sentence carefully as new knowledge suggests a change in our previous instructions.

Vitamin D3 is doing two things:

1)Stimulating the body to produce antimicrobial peptides, which will literally kill the virus. 2)Down regulating the production of cytokines that produce an inflammatory response in your lungs. It is the overproduction of these cytokines, which kills the patient. Young people have the strongest immune systems and therefore produce the greatest response, which kills them.

Therefore, the most effective dose of Vitamin D3 prophylactically (to prevent) is 5,000 I.U.’s daily for everyone. (If you have Vitamin D3 2,000 I.U.’s take 3 capsules) But, if you are getting sick or are sick you must increase the dose of Vitamin D3 to 1000 I.U.’s per pound of body weight daily for 5 days. Please note the changes from previous alerts and use these recommendations as the final desired plan. The Vitamin D3 Drops contains 2,000 I.U.’s per drop and are available for children.

For those of you that do not have the INT Alpha and Vitamin D, PLEASE reconsider. For more information on Vitamin D visit http://www.vitamindcouncil.org
