• Nobody Told Me And They Didn’t Tell You Either

    Posted September 12, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    YOUR PROSTATE IS GOING TO FAIL YOU AND THAT IS WITHOUT FAIL

    As a health journalist and consumer advocate I try to challenge consumers to take care of their own health, not fall for the trappings of modern medicine, and as much of a godsend as they are, not to fall for the many exaggerations and false promises made by makers of dietary supplements either.

    So, today’s health question is: what does a guy do when his prostate gland starts acting up?

    Most men only like to talk about four things….. sports, cars, girls, money… But as they age another unwelcome topic enters the discussion – – – prostate problems.  The problem started much earlier in life, but nobody told me, or you, so we could head it off.

  • PERPLEXING HEALTH PROBLEMS MAY BE RESOLVED WITH ACID PILLS

    Posted August 20, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    UNDERLYING CAUSE OF ILLNESS

    Your doctors can’t figure out what is ailing you.  You are plagued by a number of disparate symptoms that don’t appear to be related.  Chronic stomach problems (chronic bloating, burping, flatulence, diarrhea, undigested food in stool), fatigue, brain fog, brittle nails, recurrent intestinal infections, allergies, asthma, the appearance of tiny blood vessels on the cheeks and nose, unexplained acne, and nausea when taking vitamin pills may have a common origin.

    You may even chronically suffer with skin conditions like psoriasis, vitiligo and eczema.  You may lose weight for no reason.  You may experience regurgitation of stomach acid into your esophagus that results in painful heartburn.  In a misdirection, your doctor may then prescribe an antacid.  You may have had your gall bladder surgically removed and you still find no relief from your symptoms.  You don’t know whether to eat or skip eating because of all the symptoms you experience.

  • Lead Toxicity 4th Leading Killer

    Posted April 28, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    Continual Exposure To Ubiquitous Toxic Lead In The Environment Suggests The Public Begin Habitual Lead Removal Measures With Dietary Supplements
    (Garlic, Vitamins C & B1, Rice Bran IP6)

    • With the realization that the toxic metal lead is ubiquitous in our modern world;
    • And blood levels of toxic lead in the environment over the past 50 years are still 10-t0-100 times higher than people living in the pre-industrial era (700-1000 years ago);
    • And that no blood level of lead is safe;
    • And only 9% of Americans have undetectable blood/lead levels;
    • While the Centers For Disease Control arbitrarily recommends blood levels of lead stay below 5 micrograms per blood sample, a massive 388% relative increased risk for death was recorded for adults with a blood/lead level below 3.8 micrograms compared to 2.0 micrograms!
    • And lead toxicity produces over 400,000 newly recognized deaths annually due to heart and blood vessel disease alone (now the 3rd leading cause of death);
    • And widespread chelation therapy is impractical and requires repeated treatment;
    • The masses, in particular young children who are most vulnerable to lead toxicity, must begin to habitually incorporate a daily dietary and supplement regimen to continually chelate (remove and dispose) of toxic lead from the human body.
    • Widely available and economical natural remedies such as garlic (allicin, the best tested natural chelator), vitamins C and B1 (thiamin), and IP6 rice bran have been shown to non-toxically remove lead from the human body (even bone) as effectively and safer than doctor-prescribed drugs (penicillamine).
    • The Centers for Disease Control says more acute cases of lead poisoning (greater than 45 micrograms/blood sample) need chelation (key-lay-shun) therapy, but even this advice does not consider the gravity of newly published data on the health risks posed by very low levels of lead.
    • Because lead interferes with iron and zinc balance and absorption, foods rich in iron (red meat) and zinc supplements (there are no zinc-rich foods outside of oysters) should be consumed particularly by children as well as adults to ward off anemia.

  • In A Free Market Economy, The Best Remedy For What Ails Modern Medicine Is Competition, If It Would Ever Be Allowed

    Posted March 26, 2019: by admin

    In a free market economy, is there freedom for alternative practitioners to recommend vitamins for young autistic children?

    In the United Kingdom it is apparent alternative practitioners such as homeopathic physicians don’t compete on equal ground with allopathic doctors.  Entrenched allopathic (conventional) medicine has the advantage in that it claims to have the high scientific ground, controls payment systems and is singularly favored by the news media.  In fact, homeopaths are characterized as an example of health quackery in the UK.

    I too have questioned the validity of homeopathic medicines which are implausible dilutions of therapeutic molecules, sometimes toxic metals, that only provide femtograms per milliliter (femtogram = 0.000,000,000,000,001 grams) of their principal active ingredient.  However, in an earlier published report I noted that surprisingly these diluted homeopathic remedies were actually shown to evoke a biological response (alter genes).

  • THERE’S A DRUGLESS CURE FOR DIABETES & OBESITY: SO WHY AREN’T DOCTORS PRESCRIBING IT?

    Posted February 20, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    Main points and summary

    • Individuals with metabolic problems (elevated blood sugar, insulin resistance, obesity) are caught in the middle of a major shift in the scientific understanding of what induces these problems.  Modern medicine treats diabesity either by a medical model (drugs) or bariatric surgery (gastric band or bypass) when it is now recognized that alterations in the composition of bacteria in the lower intestine (gut) initiate these problems.  Patients may have to venture on their own to put corrective measures into practice.
    • Inclusion of more indigestible carbohydrates in the American diet is the most practical remedy but the public is likely to get confused over advice to limit processed carbohydrates (bread, rice, pasta, cereal) vs. increased consumption of bran, pectin and other indigestible carbohydrates.  It is unlikely the American public will go back to eating unprocessed foods.  Convenience and prepared foods reign.
    • A particular bacterium, Akkermansia muciniphila (AKK), is responsible for the production of butyrate, the major source of cell energy in the gut.  The provision of butyrate completely eradicates measures of metabolic illness in laboratory animals but may only produce a transient effect in humans.  The use of other indigestible fibers (bran, pectin, polyphenols) is likely to be the most efficacious.  Indigestible starch is another preferential option.
    • Weight reduction can be achieved by these measures via promotion of satiation that results in eating less food and by burning more calories.

  • BOUGHT OFF: Why You Don’t Hear About Low-Cost Natural Remedies In The News

    Posted February 11, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    The obvious often escapes public recognition. By categorical definition, news media attract public interest with information or entertainment that draws readers, listeners and viewers, in order to sell products and services offered by sponsors. Somehow the public mistakenly believes news reporters are unbiased investigators operating in the public’s interest. In fact, they are front men for commercial entities.

    Consumers can’t imagine the whole American shopping experience inside grocery stores, viewing food ads on TV and going to doctors’ offices are orchestrated to promote over-consumption of processed foods that foments metabolic disease that in turn requires more drugs to be prescribed.

  • The Breast Cancer Remedies That Women Never Hear About

    Posted January 30, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    There are dietary supplements that go unused by women who have been newly diagnosed with breast cancer that have been demonstrated to shrink their tumors but are ignored by doctors.  But before these natural remedies are revealed, the stage for their use has to be set.

    Short of complete surgical breast removal, there is no treatment that will allay the fears of a woman newly diagnosed with a form of cancer that paradoxically will never pose a threat to their lives.

    They call it non-cancer or Stage-zero (non-life threatening) breast cancer.  It has risen to comprise about 1 in 4 breast cancer diagnoses made today comprising 60,000 new cases annually.  In medical terminology, it is called ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), early cancerous changes in the milk ducts of women’s breasts.

  • Behind The Curtains, A Cancer Cure

    Posted January 12, 2019: by Bill Sardi

    A researcher believes he has a novel cure for cancer.  In fact, a lengthy patent explains the rationale for the cure.  But in doing so, it reveals much more.

    First this researcher notes that the lifetime cancer risk is 40% in humans and just 4% in virtually all other large-bodied long-lived species.  Why?

    In the presentation of his patent-applied-for cure it is noted that the 2-year survival observed in cancer patients over the past 27 years is a disappointing 7%.  The reason given is telling.
