New Study Unearths Paradox: Opioids Cause Chronic Pain – Prepare for Change ~ 10 May 2018

We all know that surgery is often painful, but a new study will have you thinking twice before you fill that pain-pill prescription. As this new science reveals, even a few days of opiates can set you up for a longer, more painful recovery

A just-released study has called into question the feasibility of using opioids to manage post-surgical pain. Rats given repeated doses of morphine experienced inflammationand pain for three weeks longer than non-medicated test subjects.

On April 16, 2018, researchers from the University of Colorado at Boulder released an animal study[1] examining the effect of opioids on pain, post-surgery. In the study, an exploratory abdominal surgery was conducted on male rats called a laparotomy. Laparotomies are routine surgical procedures in the United States, often conducted when pelvic disorders are suspected, and one for which opioids are the standard post-surgical pain management prescription.

Rats were treated with moderate doses of morphine immediately post-surgery for seven days, while a control group was given saline solution. A further experiment was conducted to determine the effects of two-days of gradual tapering from morphine after eight days of dosing, versus the effects of abrupt withdrawal. A third experiment fed subjects morphine for seven days prior to laparotomy. Rats were then measured for sensitivity to touch, as well as expression of inflammatory markers in the spinal cord.

In a surprise to researchers, results showed that opioid pain treatments prolonged pain for three weeks as compared to non-medicated subjects given the saline solution. Opioids further had the effect of “priming” specialized, immune system cells in the spinal cord to become more sensitive to pain. The longer the rats received morphine, the longer they were reactive to pain. Tapering from the medication had no effect on pain sensitivity as compared to quitting cold-turkey. Researchers concluded that “morphine can have a deleterious effect on postoperative pain,” and suggested that longitudinal studies be performed to determine if this same effect can …

Oncologists Accidental Discovery – The Juice That Kills Cancer – Prepare for Change ~ 19th Mar 2018

Recently, a group of Canadian scientists discovered that there’s an effective herb that can kill cancer naturally and without side-effects in just 2 days!

 Terrific news come from the University of Windsor, where scientists have been examining the effects of dandelion against cancer since 2009. The project started when one oncologist discovered a relation between dandelion root tea and lower risk of cancer.Pamela Ovadje is a post-doctoral candidate at the University who found the benefits of the root. “One oncologist who worked with us, told us the unbelievable improvement in a patient’s daily drinking tea from dandelion root.

We immediately began to investigate this tea to see how other patients respond to it, however we were pretty skeptical. I thought that dandelion grows all over, and if at all there is something great in it, people would have long ago found,” she remembers.

Magnesium Threonate Benefits For Brain Too Good To Be True? ~ Superfoodly.com

The claim that it might help with male pattern baldness seemed like a total scam… until we dug into the South Korean study.

chart showing DHT levels with L threonate

Human dermal papilla cells were treated with DHT in the presence or absence of L-threonate

Using cultured human dermal papilla cells, they reported that this unique form seemed to inhibit DHT.

Why that’s so interesting is because DHT plays an important role. Lowering DHT happens to be the active mechanism of Propecia.

The theory of hair loss benefits is not proven, but it at least seems plausible after reviewing the research.

But wait, there’s more.

What is magnesium L threonate used for?

According to the message boards and blogs, hair growth appears to be the least discussed topic. You hear of people claiming to use threonate for sleep, anxiety, and as a nootropic (brain enhancer). Some cite animal research involving mental health.

Even the respected Dana Foundation, which is a New York philanthropic organization that’s been focused on brain health since 1950, has talked about it on their website (1).

While making no claims themselves, they do cite a prominent scientist who claims being magnesium deficient has been linked to “depression-like behaviors” in mice.

The same article also mention research out of Beijing, which suggested healthy magnesium levels correlated with increased glutamatergic synaptic density – in the prefontal cortex and hippocampus. Professor Guosong Liu claims that “would accord with antidepressant and antianxiety effects.”

Mr. Liu is also 1 of the 2 inventors listed in the following U.S. patent application for Magtein, which is the brand name it goes by.

US patent application for Magtein

That particular patent is from 2008, but this form of magnesium was invented or discovered years prior. It looks like it took some time to figure out what health benefits if might be used for.

The first piece of research in the PubMed database about it is from 2003, in Chinese (2).

In 1997, a Chinese patent was filed about L-threonic acid. It’s not specific to magnesium though, as they also talk about combining it with other minerals like potassium, sodium, ammonium, zinc, and iron (3).

As you can see above in the 2008 patent, the inventors propose that it might be useful for Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), ADHD, high blood pressure, migraines and even diabetes. To be clear though, these are just theories.

Those, as well as all the other proposed benefits discussed so far, are only theories which have been put forth. None have been proven.

Before rather than jump to conclusions again, we decided to do an exhaustive analysis of the science. The Cliff’s Notes are below for your convenience.

What is it?

magnesium threonate moleculeMagnesium threonate is a chelate, which means it’s a metal attached to an anion (negatively charged group).

Still puzzled? No worries.

Basically it is magnesium attached to L threanoic acid, which is a sugar acid that comes from vitamin C.

What does it do?

Magnesium is one of the essential macrominerals. Unlike trace minerals which are only needed in tiny amounts, your body requires a relatively large amount of this and others, like calcium and potassium.

The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) for magnesium increases slightly with age. Adult males under 30 require 400 mg and for women, 310 mg. From 31 and onward, the amounts go up to 420 and 320, respectively.

Many people get adequate amounts from diet alone, but those with GI diseases like gluten-sensitivity, Crohn’s disease, and IBS can suffer from deficiency over time (4).

According to the NIH, when a person does not get enough, the side effects can include:

  • abnormal heart rhythms
  • coronary spasms
  • cramps
  • fatigue
  • hypocalcemia (low calcium levels)
  • hypokalemia (low potassium levels)
  • loss of appetite
  • muscle contractions
  • nausea
  • numbness
  • personality changes
  • seizures
  • tingling
  • vomiting
  • weakness


That’s about our needs of the mineral in general, not any specific form of it.

You can buy it as a supplement in many different forms. Why you would choose it attached to L threanoic acid – which is a very expensive version – only makes sense when you compare and contrast it to the others.

What is the difference between magnesium L threonate vs. magnesium citrate?

The latter is citric acid that’s bound to the metal, to create a salt. In high concentrations, it’s used as a laxative prior to surgery to empty the bowels… not exactly something you want to supplement with.

Natural Calm anti-anxiety drink

Natural Calm drink is marketed as being anti-anxiety, but does the citrate version it uses easily travel to the brain? There’s not proof of that.

Unlike magnesium citrate, the threonate form easily crosses the blood brain barrier. This is something which was demonstrated in the MIT study (more on that in a minute). Magnesium oxide, orotate, taurate, malate, glyconite, carbonate, and chloride forms can’t make the same claim. Or at least if they do easily cross through, there aren’t studies to suggest it.

How long does it stay in your system versus the others?

The half-life of magnesium L threonate is not something you can easily measure, like a pharmaceutical compound which is broken down by the liver.

Because while it’s true the magnesium ion can be separated from the L-threonic acid, you can’t break it down any further than that. So measuring the half-life of how long that magnesium stays in your body would be difficult, since there are plenty of those ions already in your body.

The research

Very little research exists on this newly discovered form. In the NIH’s database of nearly 30 million pieces of medical research, fewer than 20 even mention it.

Vitamin C Deficient Stem Cells More Likely To Turn Into Leukemia – by Lori Alton @NaturalHealth365 – RiseEarth

 

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 23,564 people lost their lives to leukemia in 2014 alone. The most common form of cancer among children and teens, leukemia also strikes adults – especially as they age. Unfortunately, to make matters worse, none of these patients probably heard about how vitamin C could help in the healing process.

For example, new research shows that insufficient levels of vitamin C can make you more susceptible to leukemia. The good news: boosting your dietary intake of the nutrient can help prevent it. Plus, this type of strategy offers no (negative) side effects and the cost is minimal.

How vitamin C “puts the brakes on” leukemia

In a study conducted at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Nature, researchers found that vitamin C helped to slow the development of leukemia by re-activating an enzyme that stops leukemia cell from growing and spreading.

The new research helps to reveal the nuts and bolts of the way vitamin C – or ascorbic acid – assists the function of stem cells – which need large amounts of this nutrient to function properly.

The researchers reported that when stem cells are depleted of vitamin C, their epigenome – the cellular system that controls which genes are turned off or on – is damaged, thereby impairing stem cell function and raising the risk of leukemia.

In addition, deficiencies in vitamin C can limit levels of TET2, a beneficial enzyme that helps stem cells do what they were designed to do: mature, make white blood cells, and then die off. TET2 mutations can cause this lifesaving enzyme to become inactive, leading to uncontrollable cell division – in which the cells neither mature properly nor die at the proper time.

This inactivation of TET2 is an early step in the development of leukemia.

But, optimal levels of vitamin C can re-activate the gene and the enzyme it produces – thereby slowing the spread of leukemia. Having optimal levels of vitamin C, the researchers noted, allows patients to “maximize” remaining TET2 tumor-suppressor activity.

The researchers noted that getting enough vitamin C is especially vital for older individuals with clonal hematopoiesis, a form of “pre-leukemia.” Patients with this condition often have a TET2 mutation as well.

TET2 mutations currently account for 42,500 cancers yearly within the United States. Fifty percent of patients with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, 30 percent with “pre-leukemia” and 10 percent with acute myeloid leukemia have TET2 disorders.

More good news about vitamin C and its cancer-fighting properties

In a related study published in Cell, researchers genetically engineered mice to have variable TET2 function – and found that reducing TET2 activity by 50 percent could induce cancer. The good news was that six months of daily high-dose vitamin C genetically restored TET2 – turning the gene “on” again – which not only stopped leukemia cells from reproducing, but also killed them outright.

The same study demonstrated that vitamin C substantially improved the effectiveness of pharmaceutical cancer drugs known as PARP inhibitors.

Lead study author Dr. Benjamin Neel, Ph.D., praised vitamin C as a “promising treatment” for cancer, and expressed his hope that high-dose vitamin C might become a “safe treatment for blood diseases caused by TET2 deficient leukemia cells, most likely in combination with other targeted therapies.”

The dosages used in the study would translate to 300,000 milligrams if adapted for humans – an amount that is impossible to obtain orally. However, many integrative cancer clinics (worldwide) offer intravenous high-dose therapies.

How much more evidence is needed?

Researchers have reported that vitamin C works as a pro-oxidant in cancer cells, depleting stores of the antioxidant glutathione and causing oxidative stress and death in cancer cells. It also impairs glycolysis, the process that produces energy in cell mitochondria.

Yet, mainstream medicine continues to ignore vitamin C therapy – in the face of emerging studies that show its merits. For example, other research has shown that high-dose vitamin C substantially decreases inflammation in cancer patients, reducing pro-inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein.

Yet another recent study showed that vitamin C outperformed an FDA-approved clinical drug, along with various experimental medications.

And, clinical studies show that high-dose vitamin C can improve quality of life in cancer patients – while suppressing symptoms of fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain and appetite loss. Extensive animal studies have shown that high-dose vitamin C treatment blocks tumor growth in pancreatic, liver, prostate and ovarian cancers.

Yet – unlike toxic chemotherapy drugs – vitamin C leaves healthy cells unharmed, leading the National Cancer Institute to publicly acknowledge that intravenous high-dose vitamin C has caused “very few side effects in clinical trials.”

One wonders: what more will it take for the medical community to recognize high-dose vitamin C as a safe, natural and inexpensive therapy for cancer?

Sufficient levels of vitamin C are of paramount importance in preventing cancer

Low levels of vitamin C are associated with numerous health conditions (aside from cancers.) These ailments include high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, stroke, atherosclerosis – to name just a few health issues.

Many Integrative healthcare providers maintain that the recommended daily amounts – currently advised by the Institutes of Medicine – are woefully inadequate. Some holistic practitioners recommend supplementing with vitamin C to the tune of 10,000 to 12,000 mg a day. (Of course, you should never undertake this without first consulting with a knowledgeable healthcare provider).

You can boost your dietary vitamin C intake by consuming healthy amounts of whole, organic foods such as bell peppers, kiwi, grapefruit, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, cabbage and broccoli. For maximum benefit, eat these foods raw, or only slightly cooked.

For supplementation, many experts suggest the use of liposomal vitamin C – especially for people looking to avoid bowel intolerance issues. The vitamin is contained in sub-microscopic bubbles, or liposomes, which make it possible for the nutrient to travel through the GI tract undamaged, then to the liver via the lymphatic system – after which it is metabolized and released into the bloodstream.

This exciting new study clearly highlights the importance of optimal vitamin C status. With ever-increasing amounts of environmental toxins and harmful microwave radiation surrounding us, getting enough vitamin C is an important investment in your health, and one that can pay enormous dividends.

The dangers of nightshades: Why eating the wrong fruits and vegetables could make pain worse : The Hearty Soul

Not just nightshades – nuts and oatmeals too. I’ve eliminated these from my daily diet and I am feeling much better now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This post was originally published on My Health Maven. Elisha is deeply passionate about educating people and empowering them to lead healthier lives. I encourage you to check out her blog.

Nightshades are a specific group of plants belonging to the Solanaceae family which includes over 2,000 species. They are also some of the most popular foods consumed today; they include tomatoes, potatoes, all types of peppers, and eggplant. Not truly a nightshade member but containing the same inflammation-inducing alkaloids are blueberries, huckleberries, goji berries and ashwagandha (Indian Ginseng).

The theory suggests that nightshades induce inflammation through a specific chemical known as solanine. Researchers now believe this chemical may actually irritate the gastrointestinal tract. When it’s absorbed into the bloodstream, it can cause the destruction of the oxygen-carrying red blood cells.

Solanine is known as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor – it acts to prevent the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh), leading to an excessive build-up of ACh in nerve receptor sites. This action allows for constant over-stimulation of Ach receptors, especially within the nervous system as it’s responsible for stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system. (source)

Solanines are not water soluble, are not destroyed by cooking, and are not broken down inside the body but must be excreted as alpha-solanine. Alpha-solanine is classified as a neurotoxin. Interestingly most “foods” that contain alpha-solanine also contain at least 5 other neurotoxins including atropine and nicotine.

Nightshades Could Be Causing Your Arthritis Flare-Ups

One of the major problems attributed to nightshades is arthritis. In fact, some researchers believe that arthritis is often misdiagnosed in people who may in fact only be experiencing the effects of nightshade consumption while having a nightshade sensitivity.

Alkaloids appear to affect the metabolism of calcium. Though not yet understood how, nightshade foods may remove calcium from bones and deposit it in soft tissue, setting the stage for arthritis. For this reason, researchers have recommended that all individuals with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other joint problems like gout eliminate nightshade foods from their diet. (source)

Norman F. Childers, Ph.D., is the founder of the Arthritis Nightshades Research Foundation. He has the following to say on this subject: “Diet appears to be a factor in the etiology of arthritis based on surveys of over 1400 volunteers during a 20-year period.

Plants in the drug family, Solanaceae (nightshades) are an important causative factor in arthritis in sensitive people.” The primary cause of the reactions in some people is the presence of an alkaloid called tropane which many are very sensitive to.

Eliminating nightshades from my diet has had a profound effect on my health. In 2006 I completely eliminated all nightshades from my diet. The first big change I noticed was that I no longer needed an inhaler. I had been diagnosed with reactive airways disease ten years’ earlier and used inhalers on almost a daily basis.

My need for inhalers decreased dramatically, until two weeks later, when I noticed I hadn’t used an inhaler at all. Six years later, I have never had the need for an inhaler. Within three months of eliminating nightshades, I noticed that the knee pain and leg weakness I had on a daily basis was also completely gone.

For those that suffer from arthritis or an arthritis-related disease such as lupus, rheumatism, and other musculoskeletal pain disorders members of the Solanaceae family of flowering plants, more commonly known as nightshades, may be adversely affecting their health.

The Nightshade List

  • Tomatoes (all varieties, including tomatillos)
  • Potatoes (all varieties, NOT sweet potatoes or yams)
  • Eggplant (aubergine)
  • Okra
  • Artichokes
  • Peppers (all varieties such as bell pepper, wax pepper, green & red peppers, chili peppers, cayenne, paprika, etc)
  • Goji berries
  • Tomarillos (a plum-like fruit from Peru)
  • Sorrel
  • Garden Huckleberry & Blueberries (contain the alkaloids that induce inflammation)
  • Gooseberries
  • Pepino Melon
  • The Homeopathic “Belladonna”
  • Tobacco
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper

Soy sauce made in the U.S. is generally made with genetically modified (GMO) soy beans, which are cut with the nightshade plant Petunia. A healthier option is to purchase Braggs Amino Acids at your health food store. It is naturally fermented soy sauce and the only other ingredient is spring water….it tastes exactly the same as other soy sauces only this one is pure.

Note: The condiments black/white pepper and peppercorns are NOT nightshades

Other Ingredients / Products to Avoid

  • Homeopathic remedies containing Belladonna (known as deadly nightshade)
  • Prescription and over-the-counter medications containing potato starch as a filler (especially prevalent in sleeping and muscle relaxing medications)
  • Edible flowers: Petunia, chalice vine, day jasmine, angel and devil’s trumpets
  • Atropine and Scopolamine, used in sleeping pills
  • Topical medications for pain and inflammation containing capsicum (in cayenne pepper)
  • Many baking powders contain potato starch
  • Don’t lick envelopes, many adhesives contain potato starch
  • Vodka (potatoes used in production)

Read labels carefully because you could be doing everything else right, and still be sabotaged by one small amount of an ingredient. You should never buy a food that uses the generic term of seasoning or spices because you won’t know what is really in your food. (source)

Three Month Challenge

If you want to know if nightshades negatively affect you, take the three-month challenge. Avoid all nightshades for three months. (It’s called a challenge for a reason). Be careful to note the previous nightshade list, and become a label reader as some homeopathic, prescriptions; over the counter medications as well as numerous processed foods contain nightshades.

Prescriptions and over the counter medicines may require a discussion with your pharmacist or a phone call to the manufacturer of your over the counter medicines. After three months begin to reintroduce one nightshade at a time. Take note of any aches, pains, stiffness, and loss of energy, headaches, respiratory problems or any other symptoms. You may find as I did, that the quality of your daily health will dramatically improve after eliminating nightshades from your diet.

The Cost of Pain

A report released on June 29, 2011, from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies shows that 116 million adult Americans (one-third of the population) live with some level of daily pain. This is more than the number of people with cancer, diabetes and heart disease combined. The cost to the U.S. is upwards of $635 billion dollars a year. These costs come from direct medical one-third, disability, lost wages and loss of productivity.

How Much Water Should We Drink Every Day? | NutritionFacts.org

quote {{ Based on all the best evidence to date, authorities from Europe, the U.S. Institute of Medicine, and the World Health Organization recommend between 2.0 and 2.7 liters (8 to 11 cups) of water a day for women, and 2.5 to 3.7 liters (10 to 15 cups) a day for men. This includes water from all sources, not just beverages. We get about a liter from food and the water our body makes. So this translates into a recommendation for women to drink 4 to 7 cups of water a day and men 6 to 11 cups, assuming only moderate physical activity at moderate ambient temperatures.

We can also get water from all the other drinks we consume, including caffeinated drinks, with the exception of stronger alcoholic drinks like wines and spirits. Beer can leave you with more water than you started with, but wine actively dehydrates you. However, in the cancer and heart disease studies I mentioned above, the benefits were only found with increased water consumption, not other beverages. }} unquote
