Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

            After listening to endless news reports about the flu and how you, your children and the elderly need to get vaccinated to be protected this season, I have given up wondering why they lie to us. I know that the safety and effectiveness of the flu vaccine has not been established in those under 18 or over 65, that there have been NO studies that adequately demonstrate the flu vaccine will decrease your risk of getting the flu. Plus flu vaccines are not tested for mutagenicity, carcinogenic potentiality or fertility impairment.  How do I know this?  I’ve read the vaccine insert that plainly states this.  I have accepted that our reporters are no longer truth-seeking journalists of yesteryear. The majority are talking heads towing their corporate line. “Presstitutes” if you will.

            Well, now that I got that off my chest…(cleansing breath)… let’s talk about real ways to stay healthy this flu season. Let’s start with good things you can do.  It can’t be said enough that a good diet is paramount!  You will not stay healthy very long if you live on fast food. So choose your food wisely and eat a balanced diet of home cooked meals rich in vegetables and quality protein.  Prepackaged “convenience” foods are prepared from low quality foods loaded with questionable ingredients and toxic chemicals that can gunk up our lymphatic system.

            Herbs are the planet’s medicinal gift to us.  Our bodies are in-tuned with herbs since they have been our food and medicine since time immemorial. I think it’s wise to use a blend of herbs that balance and nourish the immune system and cleanse the lymphatic system.   I make one such blend called Endocrine Strengthener.   I formulated this tincture originally for autoimmune diseases but it has proven to be especially effective for preventing colds and flu.   One example: my Mom once was hospitalized during a terrible flu outbreak. Luckily her doctor prescribed Endocrine Strengthener for her so she received it regularly with her meds. While everyone (including the hospital staff) was dropping like flies from the flu, Mom remained flu-free.

            Ginger and turmeric are two wonderful herbs.  Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory with anti-tumor properties that prevents and dissolves gallstones.  It has a mild flavor so you can add it to many dishes as long as you don’t mind the rich yellow color.  It works very well for yellow rice, chicken coating or chicken soup. Ginger is a delightful herb with warming properties that stimulates the lymphatic system and settles the stomach. I always keep fresh ginger on hand.  At the first sign of a sniffle I slice the ginger root and place it in a Thermos with boiling water. If you drink ½ cup every waking hour for 24 hours, nine times out of ten you will ward off the encroaching illness.  You can use the sliced ginger 3 times by refilling it with boiling water.

            Eat more fermented foods to add healthy bacteria to your digestive tract.  Digestion is very important to health; when you don’t digest properly you can’t eliminate all toxins. Try adding fermented foods to your diet.  Kefir contains ten times more healthy bacteria than yogurt, making it an excellent choice to repopulate your gut.  Kombucha tea is served cold and it has a mild apple cider vinegar taste.  Some other fermented foods to try are kimchi, fresh sauerkraut, tempeh, miso soup, naturally fermented apple cider vinegar and rejuvelac.

            Salt. There is much talk about salt these days and much of it is negative. The truth is that salt is very important to young athletes or anyone who sweats a lot. Most salt that we consume today is refined salt in which all of the trace minerals have been removed during processing.  Unrefined salt (in many varieties from many parts of the world) is loaded with trace minerals that are essential to heart health and counterbalance the ill effects of refined salt.  My favorite is Himalayan pink salt with 84 trace minerals. Use unrefined salt and use it guilt free.

            Water is the most elemental of all things you can do for your health yet city water can be polluted with chlorine and fluoride.  Fluoride can be a combination of up to 350 toxic chemicals and NO, fluoride does not prevent cavities but it does increase the risk of bone cancer.  Why don’t we hear this more often?  I refer you to the first paragraph….  If you have city water, be sure to get a system that filters out fluoride and use the filtered water for everything you ingest including boiling pasta.  I avoid bottled water, as it leaches chemicals from the plastic bottle.  If you use fluoridated toothpaste make sure you rinse well with water or a non-fluoridated mouthwash.  And please don’t let toddlers or young children use fluoridated toothpaste.  Did you know that if an adult swallows a pea-sized morsel of toothpaste they should call poison control?  It is a heavy metal and just imagine how easy it would be for a young child to swallow that amount.  So once you have a good source of water, be sure to drink enough since your body doesn’t function well in a dehydrated state.

            Avoid all GMO (genetically modified organism) and GE (genetically engineered) foods.  These are not hybrids; they insert genes from other species.  To learn more, read my newsletter on this subject.  Many countries have banned GMOs yet in America we don’t even list them on the label.  But here is the short version: if you eat corn, soy, cottonseed oil, canola oil, tomatoes (from the store), sugar beets or non-organic milk there’s a 90% chance they are GMOs. So please educate yourself in this area.  Also limit your intake of white flour and refined sugar.

            Give your body what it needs and it will serve you well. Start to train yourself to think differently about your health. We are trained to take aspirin (or whatever) for pain. But if you think about it we don’t get arthritis because we have an aspirin deficiency!  Every illness is either a deficiency or toxicity.  So be your own detective and as my father always said, “Question Everything”
Over 700,000 Americans die each year at the hands of government-sanctioned medicine, while the
FDA and other government agencies pretend to protect the public by harassing those who offer safe alternatives.

Endocrine Strengthener
For autoimmune disorders – alopecia totalis

Endocrine Strengthener fortifies the immune system by nourishing the endocrine glands. It has been very helpful for those with alopecia totalis and highly recommended for anyone fighting a Candida overgrowth. This formula can also be to ward off colds and flu when taken at the first signs. Endocrine Strengthener is highly recommended for anyone suffering from any form of autoimmune disorder such as Alopecia Totalis; Lupus; arthritis; chronic fatigue; Epstein Barr and Crohn’s. Alopecia Areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis are autoimmune disorders in which the immune system attacks health hair follicles causing baldness that ranges from patchy bald spots to total loss of body hair.
Note: At the first sign of cold or flu take 5-10 eyedroppers full 2-3 times daily for 2-4 days. Judge the proper amount based on your size and condition of your immune system.

* Are you looking for a natural treatment for fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Syndrome or Epstein Barr?
* Do you catch colds easily? (more than two a year)
* Do you have an autoimmune disorder? (Lupus; Crohn’s Disease;      
Alopecia Totalis etc.)
* Do you have hormonal or thyroid problems?
* Are you suffering from a chronic infection?
* Do you have frequent yeast infections or candida overgrowth?
* Do you get frequent cold sores or have genital herpes?
*  Are your lymph glands sore and swollen at times?
If you answer “yes” to any of the preceding questions, then your immune system could probably benefit from some support.
Alternative uses for Endocrine Strengthener
* Artery health and support for arteriolosclerosis
* Blood cleanser
* Leg cramps
* Nervousness
* Female complaints such as endometriosis and menopause (hot flashes, night sweats)
* Support and nourishment for the reproductive system (male and female)

Endocrine Strengthener supports the immune system. Use it for a fibromyalgia herbal treatment or autoimmune disorders. It contains Pau d arco that balances the immune. It is useful for herpes, warts, alopecia totalis and cancer. Black haw helps to maintain healthy hormone levels and is an antispasmodic. While chaste berries are also an antispasmodic, they also help depression and headaches. Echinacea is well known for its immune support but it is also an excellent blood purifier and infection fighter. Ginger improves circulation, prevents nausea and is very useful for childhood diseases such as whooping cough and chicken pox. Licorice cleanses the blood, clears the lungs, prevents colds and increases energy. Kelp is a good source of iodine which helps protect against radiation. It promote adrenal health and protects the thyroid, pituitary gland and arteries.
Endocrine Strengthener is an outstanding natural treatment for fibromyalgia, alopecia totalis, Epstein Barr and is most helpful in preventing colds.


What to Expect When Taking
Endocrine Strengthener for Alopecia

            Endocrine Strengthener is an herbal tincture that balances the immune system. If you read my story on my website, you probably know that it cured my Alopecia Totalis (loss of hair, eyebrows and eyelashes). Since then I have enormous success with my clients. I recommend giving it at least three to six months of consistent doses to give your immune system a chance to normalize.
            Endocrine Strengthener comes in a four oz bottle and the dose is 1 dropper (ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BULB) per 50 lbs, of body weight 2 times daily (usually morning and evening). If for some reason you miss a dose, simply double the next dose. One bottle lasts about a month for 150 lb person at the normal dose. Please read all the literature that comes with your order.
            For the first week it is suggested to double the normal dose to help jump-start your immune system.
I would say that the success rate of those who have stayed in touch with me and have been consistent in their doses is about 80-90 percent.
Some people show results in the first month but I suggest taking Endocrine Strengthener for at least three to six months to give it a chance to rebuild your immune system. Children seem to recover quicker than adults do and women generally recover quicker than men. Also you should consider the degree of alopecia you have and adjust the time accordingly.
If you have Alopecia Areata [patchy balding] give it at least 3 months. If you have Alopecia Totalis [no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes] give it at least 5 months. If you have Alopecia Universalis [no hair anywhere on the body] give it at least 6 months. Of not everyone will fall into these categories as we are all individuals.
You should start to see hair growing after this time. You will probably notice that you have more energy, fewer colds and generally just feel better due to your improved immune system. But please keep in touch with me and let me know how you are feeling; though some cases can be stubborn; there are things we can do to tweak your recovery.
This really works; try to be patient; one gentleman took 9 months before hair started showing but he had the most severe form, alopecia universalis.
            When the hair first comes in it is light and wispy but as it grows it turns back to its natural thickness and color.
You should continue to take Endocrine Strengthener if you see re-growth. Remember that it is not just growing hair but it is restoring your compromised immune system. This takes time.
            For anyone who has had alopecia for any length of time and has tried many treatments that ultimately failed, it is hard to believe that anything will work. I know because after 11 years I had given up hope that I would EVER have hair again.
            So I ask you to trust the treatment because it works.
