Breast Cancer Awareness & Influenza

July 23, 2018


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


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.

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.


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.

Cardiovascular Disease Treatment

Cardiovascular diseases can considerably affect the quality of your life. At COEM, we offer a wide range of treatment options to help you improve your heart health. Our team has experience and expertise in providing effective treatments for heart and vascular problems.

We use the latest technology to ensure better outcomes for our patients and provide compassionate care to create a stress-free experience. We will help you create a personalized treatment plan to address your individual health needs.


What Is Cardiovascular Disease?

Cardiovascular disease or CVD is a broad term used for an ailment of heart or blood vessels. It is usually connected with a build-up of a substance, called plaque, in the walls of the arteries. This increases the chances of blood clotting in the arteries, thus making blood flow more difficult. This condition is known as atherosclerosis and is the primary cause of all CVDs.

Common Heart and Cardiovascular Disease Conditions

Heart Disease

Heart and blood vessel problems are mainly related to atherosclerosis. When blood gets clotted in the arteries due to atherosclerosis, it can block the blood flow through them and lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Heart Attack

A heart attack happens when blood clots formed inside the arteries block the blood flow to an area of the heart altogether. Most people generally outlive their first heart attack and resume their normal lives for many more years. However, once you have gone through a heart attack, you need to comply with the lifestyle changes recommended by your doctor and take the prescribed medications.


The most common type of stroke is called ischemic stroke. It occurs when a blood vessel that supplies blood to the brain gets blocked by a blood clot. If this happens, the brain cells become deprived of blood and will start to die. This results in loss of body functions controlled by that part of the brain, such as talking or walking.

Another type of stroke, called hemorrhagic stroke, occurs when a blood vessel ruptures within the brain. The main reason for this type of stroke is uncontrolled hypertension.

Heart Failure

Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure, happens when the heart fails to meet the body’s need for blood and oxygen even though it keeps on working. This condition can worsen if left untreated.


An arrhythmia occurs whenever there is an abnormal change in the heart rhythm. That irregular heartbeat reduces the efficiency of your heart. There are two types of arrhythmias: bradycardia and tachycardia. Bradycardia occurs when the heart beats less than 60 times per minute, while tachycardia occurs when it beats more than 100 times per minute.

Heart Valve Problems

Heart problems can also occur when heart valves, which control the direction of blood flow through the heart, experience malfunctions. A faulty heart valve can allow blood into different chambers of the heart to get mixed up and compromise healthy blood circulation in the body.

Signs and Symptoms of Common Heart Attack

Heart attack symptoms and severity can vary from person to person. Some heart attacks strike suddenly, while others last longer. Common heart attack symptoms are:

  • Recurrent tightness, pressure, pain, or a squeezing sensation (angina) in your chest or arms. This pain can spread to your back, neck, and jaw.
  • Lightheadedness or sudden dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Heartburn, nausea, indigestion, or abdominal pain
  • Cold sweat

Complications Associated with Heart Attack

There are two types of complications that can follow a heart attack. The first type of complication occurs immediately after the attack and the second occurs later on.

Immediate Complications

  • Arrhythmias – The heartbeat becomes irregular. It beats either too fast or too slow.
  • Cardiogenic Shock – Sudden lowering of blood pressure causing difficulty for the heart to pump enough blood for the body.
  • Pulmonary Edema – Fluid accumulation in and around the lungs.
  • Hypoxemia – Blood oxygen levels become too low.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) – Deep veins of the pelvis and legs develop blood clots interrupting the blood flow in the vein.
  • Myocardial Rupture – Damages caused to the heart walls due to the heart attack may increase the possibility of a heart wall rupture.
  • Ventricular Aneurysm – A bulge is formed in the ventricle (heart chamber).

Complications That Can Occur Later

  • Aneurysm – The damaged heart wall tissue can get scarred, leading to abnormal heart rhythms, blood clots, and low blood pressure.
  • Angina – Chest pain caused by a deficiency of oxygen in the heart.
  • Congestive Heart Failure – The heartbeat weakens and leaves the person feeling exhausted.
  • Edema – Swelling of ankles and legs.
  • Erectile Dysfunction – A heart disease can cause erectile dysfunction in men.
  • Loss of Libido – Men can experience a loss of sexual drive.
  • Pericarditis – Pericardium (lining of the heart) can get inflamed and cause severe chest pain.

Understand Your Risks to Prevent a Heart Attack

Risk factors can be classified into three types.

Major Risk Factors -These include hereditary, increasing age, and gender.

Modifiable Risk Factors – These include smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, physical inactivity, and obesity.

Contributing Risk Factors – These are factors that may contribute to developing cardiovascular disease. These include stress, alcohol consumption, and improper diet.

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.

¬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.

(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.

First established in 1978 by Ms. Belinda Barnes, Foresight is a charitable organization based in Surrey, England. Its primary role is to promote the importance of good health and nutritional status in both parents before they conceive a baby, and to provide sensible, achievable information and advice on how to do this.

Foresight has put together a thoroughly researched pre-conception program that identifies and addresses various areas of concern in the health in any pair of prospective parents. The objective is to optimize the health of both prospective parents well before conception occurs so that a pregnancy can be started with a normal, strong sperm and ova and the embryo can implant and develop under optimum conditions in a healthy uterus, with no danger of damage from nutritional deficiency, toxins, or disease.

Over the years, Foresight has found that under these conditions it is possible to have uncomplicated pregnancies resulting in strong, healthy and perfectly formed babies, even in many couples who may have previously experienced the distress of miscarriage, stillbirth, birth defects, unexplained infertility, post-natal depression, health problems in the child, and other problems relating to conception, pregnancy and birth.

It is a sad fact that the modern, busy lives that many people lead today, with our polluted air and our over-stored, over-processed and over-packaged foods, are not conducive to healthy living. Unfortunately, our fertility and our ability to reproduce is one of the first things to be affected (albeit mildly in many cases), although symptoms of ‘sub-fertility’ often do not become apparent until problems with conception or pregnancy result. Many couples experiencing reproductive problems of one form or another would otherwise consider themselves to be perfectly healthy.
