Emotional Breakdown

Emotional Breakdown

One teacher became extremely distraught and very worried about her health. Her experiences included being teary eyed, emotional, very tired. She could not cope with her class and just did not know if she could do her work any more. She was ready to quit her job. A friend told her all about the Nature’s Sunshine products , how remarkable they were and how they had sustained her health for many years. This person decided to give it a try. She changed her eating patterns by eliminating all sugars, grains and dairy. She began to make power shakes for breakfast with Mineral Chi Tonic 2 oz, Collatrim Plus , 1 scoop, Flax Lignans 1 scoop, berries and water. She drank Chlorophyll and water and took CLT-X, Flax Seed Oil and Cal/Mag. Within 4 weeks she noticed a huge difference – no more breaking down even in stressful situations , no more tiredness, no more emotional upheavals and she lost 8 unwanted pounds ! I must say that she looked radiant the last time I saw her ! Dec. 17/2010 Donna

Fever abd Cold

Fever and Cold

One young mother felt very sick with a fever and a cold. Upon hearing the problems that grains have in your body she immediately took herself off all grains, sugar, legumes and dairy. She started a program of Mineral Chi Tonic 2 ounces a day along with Cat’s Claw about 4 three times a day and Chlorophyll and water. Within a short period of time all the symptoms disappeared and she feels wonderful. Her stomach no longer feels heavy and her cravings for potatoes is gone. She is recommending the Nature’s Sunshine products to other people and is considering the Nature’s Sunshine business.

Fainting Feeling

Fainting Feeling

One man was in a state of disarray about his health because he would get those “ feeling just awful “ sensations quite frequently and just had no idea what could be causing this. He decided that perhaps a Zyto scan may help him. From the scan a program was designed for his health needs. He eliminated all food allergens : sugar, grains, legumes, dairy. He added Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic, Chlorophyll, Noni, Cat’s Claw, Super Omega 3, Olive Leaf extract and Everflex to his program according to the directions of the Zyto scan. Within a month he reported that there were no more of those “feeling awful” moments. He is very happy with his new lifestyle .

Cancer of the Breast

Cancer of the Breast

One woman from Ontario was diagnosed with breast cancer Christmas of 2008. She was told by her oncologist that if she did not have surgery immediately she would die ! However this woman deeply considered the effects that surgery would have on her body. Her next step was very brave and courageous. She decided right there and then that she would take a strong stand for the health of her body. She turned around , opened the door of the doctor’s office and headed straight for the parking lot where she sat in her car and drove home never to turn back. The next step she took was to make a decision that there must be another way. It is interesting to note that now it is 2010 , she still has a tumour in her breast and she is still alive ! She is now on the Paw Paw program and she attends the Donna Roth teleconference calls on the Paw Paw program on Mondays at 5:45 pm Pacific time. “ I can’t tell you how helpful your calls are. You speak with conviction and give us the confidence. I am so grateful for all of your tips.:”

Tonsilitis and Adenoids

Tonsilitis and Adenoids

One 15 year old young woman became so sick with infected tonsillitis and adenoids she was not able to attend school. Her only option was home schooling. She had been on antibiotics off and on for three years but to no avail. Finally she decided that her only choice was to have the tonsils surgically removed. But the surgery made no difference to her state of health. Even the surgeon was not happy with the results of the surgery. He suggested that she drink more water. The tiredness, listlessness, lack of energy continued and she was now labelled as “lazy”. She was very concerned and did not know what could be wrong. Finally a friend talked to her and convinced her that there was a different way and perhaps she could take a visit to Donna Roth’s office. Reluctantly she decided that this could not hurt. She agreed to a Zyto scan and to following a lifestyle change. She stopped eating cereal, milk, pasta and sugar. She began taking Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic, Maca and Cat’s Claw. Within 2 weeks a whole new transformation took place. The energy returned, she got a job and she feels like a new person. “ I never knew what it felt like to fell better. It is amazing !

Understanding Neurotransmitters

Understanding Neurotransmitters

When the dendrites (receiving ends) of a nerve cell are stimulated, the nerve fires an electrical impulse down its axon (the sending end). At the end of the axon are synapses, gaps which separate that nerve cell from other nerve cells. When the electrical impulse reaches the end of the axon, it releases neurotransmitters into the synapse, which stimulates or inhibits the next nerve cell.

Neurotransmitters work on a system similar to a “key and lock." Keys work because they have a specific shape that inserts in a specific lock and allows that lock to turn on or off. Like a key, each chemical messenger has a three-dimensional shape. Like a lock, a receptor site also has a specific shape into which the messenger chemical fits. When the two are joined, cellular processes are activated or inhibited, like turning a keyed switch on or off.

Drugs and compounds from plants can affect neurotransmitters in a number of ways. First, they can mimic the effect of the neurotransmitter because they possess a similar molecular shape, which allows them to fit into the receptor. It's sort of like having a counterfeit key.

Secondly, chemical drugs or phytonutrients from plants can also sensitize the receptor sites (sort of like lubricating the lock to make the key fit easier). Finally, they can also influence enzymes that create neurotransmitters or break them down or influence their release or re-uptake (absorption back into the cell that released them).

The beautiful thing about plants is that they contain numerous compounds, which can influence these systems in very subtle and complex ways. This prevents them from having the serious side-effects of drugs. With that understanding, let’s look at the neurotransmitter involved in memory, acetylcholine, and the herbs we can use to influence it.

Boosting the Memory Molecule

Acetylcholine was the first neurotransmitter to be discovered. It’s the neurotransmitter that is deficient in Alzheimer’s disease and acetylcholine deficiency is known to cause memory loss and depression. Acetylcholine is also released by muscle neurons (nerve cells) to cause muscle contraction.

Choline, a substance that is grouped with the B-vitamins, is the base used to produce acetylcholine. Choline-rich foods, such as egg yolks, green leafy vegetables and legumes (peanuts, soybeans and other beans) will automatically increase the amount of acetylcholine in the brain.

Phosphatidyl-choline, found in lecithin is known to enhance acetylcholine production, as is DMAE. Both of these substances cross the blood brain barrier more easily than choline, so they are better at enhancing acetylcholine production than straight choline. Vitamins B1 and B5,( Pantothenic Acid) are also needed to synthesize acetylcholine.

Nerve synapses that house and release acetylcholine are termed cholinergic and the receptor sites for them are cholinergic receptors. Cholinergics are substances that promote the release, prevent the degradation of, or otherwise enhance the action of acetylcholine. Herbs with cholinergic activity include lemon balm, sage, rosemary, ginkgo, gotu kola and Chinese club moss.

Lemon balm has a reputation for creating alertness and lifting sadness and melancholy. It contains a compound that makes cholinergic recepters more sensitive.

Sage has long been considered an herb to improve memory (hence, the term “sage” in reference to someone who is wise). Sage inhibits the enzyme cholinesterase, which breaks down acetylcholine.

Rosemary is another herb that has a reputation for enhancing memory. It contains about a half-dozen compounds that are reported to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine. Furthermore, rosemary contains antioxidants that protect the brain. (Sage and Rosemary are found in HSN-W)

Some of the memory-boosting compounds in these three herbs are aromatic. Smelling lemon balm, sage and rosemary will immediately make you feel more mentally alert, so a blend of these oils, plus a little peppermint could help you stay alert and focused when you need to study or concentrate.

Ginkgo/Gotu Kola

My favorite formula for enhancing memory and cognition is Ginkgo/Gotu Kola with Bacopa. I have used it with a number of elderly people with beneficial results, including one of my uncles. It made a huge difference in his memory, one that my cousins found very noticeable. I have taken it myself, with positive effects, when I felt I needed to improve my concentration.

Ginkgo appears to enhance both the release of acetylcholine and the sensitivity of acetylcholine receptors. It definitely can enhance cognitive function in the elderly and helps prevent memory decline associated with aging. You can read more about this formula on our website.

Gotu kola is another herb with a long history of use in enhancing memory. It’s unclear whether it affects acetylcholine. It does act as an antioxidant and studies show it does enhance cognitive function, but it’s difficult to determine exactly how it does this.

Ginkgo/Gotu Kola is not likely to help younger people with good mental function to be "smarter," but it's great for slowing age-related memory decline. It also has positive effects on circulation and has some anti-aging effects.

Nutrition and Mental Health

Nutrition and Mental Health

Dr. Price found that indigenous people living on traditional diets weren't just physically healthy, they also tended to have a low crime rate and smile a lot. In contrast, he observed that people living off of modern processed foods were not only physically weaker and more prone to disease, they also had more problems with crime, depression, anxiety and other “mental” health problems.

Dr. Price's research isn't the only research showing that nutrition affects mental health. One can see a similar pattern in the research of Dr. Francis Pottenger, who conducted experiments feeding different diets to various groups of cats.

In Dr. Pottenger's experiments, cat’s fed a healthy diet were not only fairly disease free with healthy bones and teeth, they were also emotionally well-adjusted, playful and easy to approach. In contrast, cats fed nutritionally deficient diets developed problems with teeth and bones, were prone to parasites and diseases and exhibited major behavioral changes.

Cats fed only cooked milk or meat scraps often became aggressive and unapproachable, or extremely docile. Cats fed sweetened condensed milk, which contains sugar, developed anxiety and other neurological problems.

Another example of the affect nutrition has on mental health as well as physical health is found in Ann Wigmore’s book, Why Suffer? She tells of a man who raised mice for pet stores. A restaurant owner convinced him to feed his mice left overs from the restaurant to save money. Within weeks the mice were not only getting sick, they were killing each other! When he switched back to natural foods, the mice became healthy again. He pointed out that this was food that people are eating every day!

Look around at the high rates of crime, depression, anxiety, obsession and other problems in modern society that obviously involve a lack of mental and emotional well-being. It's pretty obvious that our "junk food" diets are leading to "junk food" brains.

Brain Cleanse

Brain Cleanse Steven Horne excerpts

Some years ago there was a commercial where some eggs were dropped into a hot frying pan. Showing the eggs the narrator said, "This is your brain." As the eggs were dropped into the frying pan, he said, "This is your brain on drugs." It was an effective message.

However, drugs aren't the only thing that can "fry" your brain. You see any toxin or irritant that sets up an inflammatory response in your brain is going to "fry" it. That's basically what happens in diseases like Alzhiemer's and Parkinson's. The oxidative damage from the inflammation "burns up" your brain cells.

Having a "clean mind" isn't just about having good thoughts. You also have to clean up the chemical toxins that can "get into your head."

Heavy Metal Detox is a good formula for helping to get heavy metals out of the body. Take one to two capsules per day along with about six to eight capsules of algin (a water soluble fiber that absorbs heavy metals). Oral Chelation with MC is also helpful for getting rid of heavy metals and has slowed the progress of many cases of Alzheimer’s and dementia. In some cases it may even produce some cognitive improvement.

The brain is particularly sensitive to damage from inflammation and free radicals, so one way to keep your mind from being burning out and becoming “fried” by toxins is to eat plenty of antioxidant-rich fresh fruits and vegetables, organically-grown where possible. Most experts recommend 5-9 servings of these health-protecting foods every day.

When we can’t get adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables, Zambroza is a convenient, easy and tasty way to get more antioxidants into the diet. Thai-Go is a blend of fruit juices and other botanical ingredients that are rich in naturally occurring antioxidants including polyphenols, flavonoids, xanthones and vitamin C. This powerful formula also reduces inflammation, relieves pain and enhances energy production.

Another way to combat inflammation and reduce free radical damage is to take Super Trio. This convenient nutritional packet contains Super Supplemental, a quality multivitamin and mineral supplement, Super ORAC, a powerful antioxidant formula and Super Omega-3. Besides being part of brain structure, Omega-3 essential fatty acids help control chronic inflammation. (We’ll talk more about the importance of fats to the brain next week.

In that interview, Dr Tenpenny says,

"It seems as though the pharmaceutical industry looks at children as nothing more than a repository of their products, whatever those products are... whether they are a vaccine, an artificial coloring from the food industry, something in a pill such as a medication, and we see these kids, they're not healthy, they're pale, they just don't look healthy. And then the pharmaceutical industry paints these happy pictures that we have to keep vaccinating these kids to keep them healthy. And the pediatricians say because these kids are sick, we need to vaccinate them more!"

Dr Tenpenny also calls out the huge conflicts of interest across the vaccine industry and pushers of vaccination policies, saying:

"The money isn't really to be made in the vaccine industry. The money is made by Big Pharma with all of the drugs that are given to treat and address all the illnesses that are subsequent to the side effects of the vaccines."

"If we could cut vaccination by 90 percent and get everybody's vitamin D levels up between 60 and 80 [ng / dl], we wouldn't have this health care problem that we have to tax everybody to death to try to take care of people. People would be healthy."

About the underlying assumption that vaccines are a valid approach to health, Dr Tenpenny questions that, too, saying:

"True health cannot come from a needle. Injecting people with something to try to keep them well is a 200 year mistake."

Speaking on the executives of the vaccine companies who have knowingly released contaminated vaccines that harmed and killed innocent children, Dr Tenpenny says, "Some of them will go to jail. Because I'm sure that some of them know absolutely what's going on."
She goes on to compare the behavior of the vaccine companies to ENRON.
