Let’s Break the Cycle in 2009! The Healthy for Life Weight Loss Program at COEM can help you do just that!

July 24, 2018

Almost as soon as the ball drops at Times Square many people start making resolutions to improve their health.

If your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight, you aren’t alone.

According to ABC News, 45 percent of Americans vow to lose weight as the New Year approaches. However, each year, many people try to go it alone without any support. This is the # 1 way that we set ourselves up for failure. We all need support. Not just from our family and friends, but from people going through the same journey, dealing with the same addictions and bad eating habits.

Let’s break this cycle in 2009! The Healthy for Life Weight Loss Program at COEM can help!

We are very pleased to offer a system that maximizes your success because it addresses all the major reasons for obesity:

  1. Decreased carbohydrate tolerance and poor blood sugar control (acquired or genetic)
  2. Hormonal imbalance
  3. Food allergy and food addiction, which are controlled by individualized food allergy drops.
  4. Nutrient deficiencies that decrease metabolism and increase cravings
  5. Lack of medical and professional support for adequate length of time
  6. Lack of knowledge about food choices (starving is NOT a desirable option)
  7. Lack of knowledge about safe exercise for overweight individuals
  8. Inability to maintain desired level of functioning when dieting

Our program is designed to not only successfully produce weight loss in our patients but to improve their health, energy, and fitness levels. This is accomplished by means of:

  • In-depth medical/laboratory assessment prior to entering the program
  • Counseling on appropriate diet, exercise, allergy, and other individualized factors
  • Weekly injections of lipotropic (fat-burning) nutrients that decrease hunger
  • (yes-these really work!)
  • Specific nutritional supplements, including licorice oil that reduces abdominal fat.
  • NO amphetamines, diet pills, herbal stimulants, or unhealthy gimmicks of any kind

As a medical practice, it is in our best interest, too, if you succeed. As your weight normalizes and the very real and severe medical risks caused by obesity are diminished, our ability to help you in other ways with your health is facilitated. Your success in this program makes our overall job as your chosen health care provider much easier. We consider ourselves partners with our patients in this program, and that is why we wish to give you the best tools and knowledge we have to make this program work for you.

You know the reasons why you, yourself, wish to lose weight and look and feel better. But did you know that the US government, medical and even insurance industries recognize the enormous risks and costs of obesity and are willing to do something about it? In April 2002, the Internal Revenue Service recognized obesity as a disease, instead of a precursor to other diseases. You may now claim weight loss programs which are under a physician’s guidance (such as this one) as a medical expense when you file your taxes. The cost of diet foods is not included, but if your insurance company does not yet provide reimbursement for a weight loss program (many do now), then the cost can be itemized as a tax-deductible medical expense.

We look forward to helping you achieve your weight loss and health goals.

Call and schedule your consultation today, 843-572-1600! What do you have to loose, except the weight?

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS & THE GIFT OF HEALTH

2010 is almost here and it’s time to make our annual resolutions. If you are like me, my intentions are good but I just can’t always stick to the plan. So this coming year, let’s keep it simple. As you know, I love being your physician and care deeply for each of you. That is why I keep encouraging you to do just a few things to protect your health – the most valuable thing in your life!

So, let me try again to persuade you to take the leap of faith and begin to take good care of yourselves. We have discovered a few supplements that are consistently helpful. Imagine being able to reduce your risk of cancer by 80% as well as heart disease, depression, diabetes and most autoimmune diseases. And while you are doing that, also protecting yourself from influenza – all of this, from one dose of Vitamin D3 a day. However, your dose must raise your blood 25 hydroxy Vitamin D3 level to a minimum of 50 ng. A dose of between 4000 to 5000 I. U. should achieve this. Additionally, it is best taken with an oil or any type of fatty food for better absorption, since it is a fat soluble nutrient.

Remember, twice a year you should have your blood level checked – once in the winter and once in the summer. You do this maintenance on your car at least twice a year so why not for yourself. Strangely, my other ‘harped’ recommendation is also a fat soluble vitamin. Yes, Vitamin K2, as Meniquinone 7. It pulls calcium plaque out of your arteries and puts it back on you bones. It has also been found to reduce the aggressiveness of cancer cells from the prostate. If it works on prostate cancer, it will do the same thing in breast and most other malignancies. Vitamin K2 protects us from three major diseases – atherosclerosis, osteoporosis and cancer. It only takes one 90 mcg capsule a day taken along with your Vitamin D. What could be so profound and yet so simple?

To add the frosting to the cake, lets add one more nutrient derived from the skin of a grape. You guessed it – Resveratrol. Would you believe this nutrient can do all of the following:

1. Reduce platelets from clumping, thus reducing risk of clots, heart attacks and strokes.
2. Reduces your LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
3. Reduces inflammation – the mechanism of injury for most diseases.
4.Is a powerful anti-oxidant.
5.Induces apoptosis, reversing cancer cell proliferation.
6.Reduces Insulin resistance, the first stage of diabetes.
7.Reduces eating, reducing obesity.
8.Increases ATP production in muscle giving us more energy.
9.Increases aerobic capacity and consumption of oxygen – so we can exercise longer and better.
10.Reduces fatty liver from high fat diets.
11.Last and by no means least, increases the longevity genes to help us live longer.

Resveratrol, at one 300 mg capsule a day, comes as close as possible to being the panacea that treats everything.

So here you have it, three nutrients providing you with the best cost effective insurance policy you could have.

Here’s wishing you and your families a blessed holiday season,

Allan D. Lieberman, M.D.
Medical Director

Over the course of the past several weeks I have learned of the untimely death of a few of my patients and family members. What was so tragic was these people were given no information about alternative treatments that might have provided some hope. Two cases will make my point.

S.L. had been my patient for several years. I saw a notice about her death, which shocked me. I never knew she was even sick other than some allergy symptoms. She died very rapidly of cancer of the pancreas. When I spoke to the family I was told she did not want anybody to know; not even me, her doctor. The prognosis for this disease is dismal with most patients dying within three months. But did she know that there was an alternative treatment to surgery, radiation and chemotherapy and with none of the usual side effects?

Dr. Burton Berkson of Las Cruces, New Mexico published two papers on the use of Alpha Lipoic Acid and low dose Naltrexone that miraculously saved the lives of four patients with terminal Pancreatic cancer. Could my patient have been saved from this tragic disease? I do not know but it would have been nice to have at least tried.

The second case was the same as the first but this time it concerned a brain tumor. Again the death of the patient was announced without anybody but the immediate family knowing about the patient’s struggle over several years using the conventional existing therapy. Did they not know that Stanislaw Burzynski of Houston Texas had an 81% successful response using his antineoplastons therapy?

The Center is happy to share what could be life saving information. You need only ask. Knowledge is power.

This alert would be incomplete if I did not repeat what I keep telling you. Cancer can be prevented but you have to know how. Our website www.earlycancerdetection.com offers valuable information especially about Breast cancer and Thermography. But more importantly, as I keep saying, you must keep your Vitamin D3 levels between 50-70 ng, which requires on average 5,000 I.U. a day of Vitamin D3. This relates to most forms of cancer, not just breast and prostate. By doing this, it is estimated that you can reduce your risk of cancer by 80%.

If the Japanese have the lowest incidence of cancer you need to do what they do. Eat kelp or supplement with iodine at levels equal to theirs- 13.5mg a day. The world’s authority on trace minerals taught, “If you tell me what the level of Selenium is in your soil, I can tell you your incidence of cancer.” Selenium, 200-400 mcg a day is another important piece of the cancer puzzle. And, finally, having an adequate level of progesterone, 200-600 times your estrogen, is crucial in the prevention of many cancers, but especially breast, prostate and colon.

We can help you measure your levels of Vitamin D, Iodine, Progesterone and Selenium to help determine how to supplement if your levels are low. More importantly, become informed about what may offer a better way of treating many life-threatening diseases. You do have choices.

To your health,

Breast Health and Thermography as an Adjunct Screening Tool

After many years of working alone in providing medical care to our female patients, The Center for Women’s Health at COEM has finally achieved its goal. We are now part of a network offering comprehensive medical care for preventing, diagnosing and treating breast cancer.

From the very first breast thermogram that we performed back in March, 2003 until today we have worked with professionals who are experts at reading thermograms and interpreting their results. This should give you confidence that your breast studies have been and continue to be read by the most experienced in this field. Always remember that Mammography is considered the primary diagnostic tool for identifying breast cancer. Thermography is useful as an adjunct procedure.

If a breast thermography is interpreted as a TH3, TH4 or TH5 we now have the services for comprehensive imaging utilizing ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Dr.’s Goltra and Clinton and their staff have been outstanding in working with the special needs of our patients. Dr. James Majeski has joined our team to provide the services as a breast specialist along with surgical intervention if needed. A review of his credentials will assure you that you are in the hands of a truly outstanding doctor. We are hearing wonderful reports from our patients who have consulted with him. They are appreciative of his skills and compassion.

As the greatest death rate from breast cancer occurs between the ages of 40-45 years and these cancers on average began 15 years before, early detection becomes critical beginning as early as age 25. Breast Thermography can be used as an adjunct procedure to Mammography WITHOUT radiation or compression. Thermography, can be highly sensitive and specific.

Using nutritional and immunologic treatment protocols we have been able to reverse even a TH4 (65% plus risk of confirming malignancy) to a normal TH1 and TH2 rating. Prevention is a better way to manage a disease that affects one in eight women. See the images for yourself.

Patient A: had her first thermogram performed on January 2004 (shown on the left). After beginning a preventive treatment protocol, she was rescanned on December 2005, showing marked improvement.

Patient B: also showed great improvement with a nutritional and immunological treatment protocol, as demonstrated in her before and after thermograms between November 2006 and October 2007.

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
July 23, 2018

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.
