IMMUNOTHERAPY WITH A.U.I.T autogenous urine immunotherapy

A.U.I.T. has a long-term history of benefit. Used for over 15 years by several physicians in the U.S.and taught in immunology courses at Johns Hopkins, it is primarily being done in clinics outside the U.S. now by William Hitt, M.D., Ph.D., retired Professor of Immunology from Johns Hopkins and LSU for over 13 years. He is not in private practice & “semi-retired” in Tijuana, primarily working with the WHO in Addictions research & Immunogenetics. The mechanism of action in this particular type of therapy is similar to Hannemann’s Homeopathic law of cure…Like Cures Like. He is one of our clinical consulting colleagues and a friend…

AUIT has been found clinically effective in the treatment of the following conditions:




There is a multiplicity of complicated mechanisms involved. Indeed, urine contains many immunologically active substances, some antigen-specific, some antigen-independent. Both enhancer and suppressor substances are present. The term “immunomodulators” serves well to describe the mechanism of action with AUIT.

TYPE I Hypersensitivity

Many B-lymphocytes exhibit surface antibodies–IgG and IgM. These antibodies differ from circulating antibodies in 2 aspects: 1. They are smaller and in the case of IgM are monomers rather than pentamers. IgG is a suppressor, and IgM is an enhancer. IgG is controlled by two T-Cell suppressor factors (TSF & TSP2). When a B-Cell is stimulated–directed or indirectly–by the proper antigen, surface immunoglobulins multiply and polarize as switching occurs (surface Ig is replaced by specific Ig, which the B-Cell produces and, eventually is secreted by plasma cells), the B-Cell then sheds these surface Ig’s. They then circulate; some are metabolized, but a significant amount appear in the urine via glomerular filtration, where they are cross-linked and denatured (urea, proteases). When reinjected into the adipose tissue (fatty), they ABORT AN ALLERGENIC REACTION IN PROGRESS (i.e. asthma attack) and, as memory cells are produced by REPEATED INJECTIONS, (8-12 or more), a prolonged STATE OF NON-REACTIVITY (Tolerance) is produced. The mechanism of action is dual…One is the immediate stimulation of T-suppressor cells to produce TS1 and TS2. The second long-range action is the production of anti-idiotypes as well as suppressor factors to other antibody-dependent reactions, such as auto-immune disease or drug or transfusion or rejection responses.  

TYPE II AND TYPE III (delated sensitivity)

So-called intolerances to foods, chemicals, etc. are mostly antigen-dependent BUT NOT ANTIBODY DEPENDENT(although antibodies are often produced, they become mostly “innocent bystanders”.) We’re dealing here with the cellular immune system. Phagocytic cells and lymphokines play a very important role. Neutrophils, in particular, are affected by these reactions. NEUTROPHILS NOT ONLYPHAGOCYTISE LARGE SUBSTANCES (PROTEINS), BUT ALSO ABSORB FOREIGN CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES (insecticides, pesticides, mycotoxins, etc.). Neutrophils are under autonomous and/or outside control. T-Cell, macrophages, and cytokines sensitize neutrophils to the point where they become hypersensitive to a given substance(s) and over-react and eventually suffer damage or destruction. AUIT suppresses these reactions by regulating #1, autonomous reactions of the neutrophils and #2, suppressing the production of cytokines.  


INTERFERON: The mode of action against viral infections is due to the antiviral effect of the interferons, Interferon Gamma (IFNg) is the most active one in this respect. Cells have IFN receptors on their surfaces. When IFNg attaches to them, it is internalized. Interferon-gamma then acts as an anti-replicator. Interferons also inhibit mitosis (division) of infected cells. INF receptors once internalized, DO NOT REPRODUCE. Usually, about 40% of receptors are left on the cell surface. INTERLUKINS: Another immunomodulator closely related to these activities is Interleukin-1 (IL-1). IL1 has to be renewed by the proper stimulant in order to cause its effects. Therefore, the clinical observation that AUIT controls but does not kill (cure) infected cells, is supported by immunological facts.  


Much has been said in the past by critics of AUIT–who, by the way, have no personal experience with this type of therapy–regarding the danger of producing glomerula basement membrane disease (Goodpasture’s disease). In some experimental models using animals, such a disease has been produced using the injection of urine, often in previously sensitized animals. However, in close to a million injections of urine in humans in both Texas and So. Calif. clinics, not a single case of Goodpasture’s disease, marked proteinuria or hematuria (all patients undergo a urinalysis prior to the injection of the urine) has been observed. Furthermore, in 5 cases of long-term (more than 1 year) of AUIT, no glomerular basement membrane antigen was found in the blood. The objection to the presence of the CBM antigen in the urine of many normal individuals can easily be overcome by the removal of this antigen by filtration. The antigen has an MW of 80,000 daltons, which is the limit of glomerular filtration.

Removing all substances heavier than MW 60,000 daltons would leave all the immunomodulators and remove the CBM antigen. The other criticism of AUIT is that the urine does not possess immunologically active substances. This statement is so patently false, that only someone alarmingly ignorant of even the basic facts of immunology can render it. It is suggested that in order to elevate AUIT to an “up-do-date” incontrovertible therapeutic modality, the following studies must be undertaken: 1. A double-blind, randomized, placebo, controlled study in cases of atopic disease 2. Measurement of IL, production of IL2, Receptor numbers, Interferon production before and after AUIT 3. Publication in journals and dissemination of the findings to the Medical and Lay communities…especially as it refers to AIDS.

Treatment of anemia – diet, Chinese medicine

Anemia is a decrease in the number of red blood cells that carry oxygen, or a decrease in the amount of a key protein that carries oxygen (hemoglobin) below a certain value. Normal levels of hemoglobin and red blood cells are different in different groups of patients, they are related to age and gender. In men, hemoglobin is higher, in women it is usually lower. The same goes for the number of red blood cells.

Anemia is a hematological syndrome that manifests as a decrease in the number of red blood cells and hemoglobin in the blood. With this pathology, the patient has general weakness, pale mucous membranes and skin, increased fatigue, tachycardia, dizziness.

Causes of anemia

The main cause of anemia is a lack of iron, vitamin B12 or folic acid . Anemia can also be caused by blood loss due to gastrointestinal bleeding, which can be associated with taking certain medications, such as acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) or ibuprofen, as well as cancer.

In the absence of hemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood cells that carries oxygen, the most common cause is insufficient intake of iron in the diet, although blood loss during menstruation or stomach ulcers are also important.

What are red blood cells

Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are the most numerous cellular component of blood. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which binds oxygen in the lungs and transports it to the tissues. The main purpose of red blood cells is to provide a normal supply of oxygen to tissues and organs.

What is the frequency, classification of anemia

– Anemia due to acute blood loss;

– Anemia due to impaired erythrocyte production: aplastic, iron deficiency, megaloblastic, sideroblastic, chronic diseases;

– Anemia due to increased destruction of red blood cells: hemolytic.

Depending on the severity of the decrease in hemoglobin levels, there are three degrees of severity of anemia: mild – hemoglobin level above 90 g / l; medium – hemoglobin in the range of 90-70 g / l; severe – hemoglobin level below 70 g / l.

Different types of anemia are found in 10-20% of the population, mostly in women. The most common anemia associated with iron deficiency (about 90% of all anemias), less common anemia in chronic diseases, even less common anemia associated with vitamin B12 or folic acid deficiency (megaloblastic), hemolytic and aplastic.

Anemia can be of complex origin. Sometimes the cause is a combination of iron deficiency and anemia due to B12 deficiency.

Medical tests for anemia

A comprehensive study that takes into account the quantitative and qualitative composition of cells, as well as the biochemical parameters of the blood, which allows you to identify the signs of anemia due to iron deficiency.

Test method

Colorimetric photometric method, flow cytometry, SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) method, conductometric method, immunoturbidimetry.

Measure units

Μmol / l (micromoles per liter), * 10 ^ 9 / l (10 in Article 9 / l), * 10 ^ 12 / l (10 in Article 12 / l), g / l (grams per liter)),% (percentage), fl (femtoliter), pg (picogram).

What biomaterial can be used for research?

Venous blood.

How to prepare for the test?

  • Exclude alcohol from your diet 24 hours before the test.
  • Do not eat 12 hours before the test.
  • Do not take medication 24 hours before the test (as agreed with your doctor).
  • Remove physical and emotional stress 30 minutes before the test.
  • Do not smoke 30 minutes before the test.

Symptoms of anemia, how to determine the presence of anemia

Symptoms and signs of anemia include fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath, disturbances, frequent colds and infections, pallor and dark circles. Mental retardation and inappropriate behavior can occur in children.

If you notice paleness, fatigue and weakness, have seizures, shortness of breath, palpitations, you should see a doctor. Stomatitis (inflammation of the mucous membrane of the mouth), inflammation of the tongue, yellowing of the skin, tingling in the hands and feet can occur with anemia caused by a lack of folic acid in the diet.

Treatment of anemia

Blood transfusion in anemia

People with anemia sickle cells they will be operated on more often than the general population due to complications associated with sickle cells such as gallstones, infections and joint problems. However, surgery can lead to sickle cell complications.

Pre-surgery transfusions can help avoid complications by lowering anemia levels, reducing sickle cell counts and increasing blood oxygen levels. This reduces the risk of clogging blood vessels and prevents further damage.

There are different types of blood transfusions. The main task of the aggressive (intensive) transfusion regime is to reduce the number of red blood cells in the shape of a sickle in the blood to a certain level (usually the sickle cells are removed and the donor cells are introduced (exchange transfusion)). It also reduces anemia. The main goal of the conservative blood transfusion regimen is to reduce the levels of anemia, as well as to reduce the percentage of sickle red blood cells in the blood (dilution effect) until the sickle red blood cells are removed. An aggressive (intensive) blood transfusion regimen reduces the percentage of sickle red blood cells in the blood to a much lower level than a conservative transfusion regimen.

Nutrition in anemia

• Increase consumption of foods rich in easily digestible iron. It is found in beef, pork, lamb, poultry, fish, peas, vegetables with dark green leaves, dried fruits. Iron in animal products is easier to digest than from vegetables.

• To speed up the absorption of iron, include vitamin C in your diet in the form of citrus fruits or juices (orange, grapefruit or lemon). Do not drink tea immediately before, during or immediately after a meal, as it interferes with iron absorption.

• Iron in large doses can cause stomach upset and constipation and can be fatal for children. In addition, it can be neutralized with other minerals, leading to nutritional imbalance. If you have to take it in packs, take it in combination with vitamins and minerals such as selenium, vitamin B2, B12, folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin E.

Chinese remedy for anemia

. It aims to restore the body’s ability to absorb iron by stimulating the activity of the spleen with the help of special tablets (Return Spleen tablets), also known as – pi pi van.

Salt metabolism in tissues in anemia

. Potassium phosphate (Cals Phos), 4 times a day, helps in the formation of red blood cells.

. Iron phosphate (Ferr Phos) facilitates the absorption of iron in food.

Specialized help with anemia

. Acupuncture cures anemia

Traditional medicine

. Your doctor will look for the underlying cause of the anemia and treat it. If there is no obvious cause, iron injections or tablets are prescribed.

Medicines, herbs that help with anemia

Constantly reduced hemoglobin concentration and the number of red blood cells is one of the most common pathological conditions diagnosed in the entire population of the Earth. Of the several types of this disease, iron deficiency anemia is the most common. According to research, every fourth inhabitant of the planet suffers from a lack of iron in the body. To fill the deficit and restore the normal balance of blood components, you can use the recommendations and prescriptions of alternative medicine.

Anemia can develop due to lack of diet or insufficient absorption of foods that contain iron, amino acids and vitamins. These components are needed for the synthesis of red blood cells. The diet of a patient with anemia should include:

Products that contain iron: strawberries, grapes, pumpkin, onions, garlic, potatoes, dill, lettuce, melons, zucchini.

Sources of vitamins from groups B and C: cranberries, viburnum, cherries, apricots, corn, hawthorn, pomegranate, blackberries, bokvica, orange, lemon, white cabbage, eggplant.

Home remedies, herbs and combinations

Foods rich in amino acids: meat, liver, milk and dairy products.

In case of anemia, it is useful to start the day with a portion of grated carrots mixed with sour cream or vegetable oil. This combination will enable complete absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

Anemia, Megaloblastic – diet, traditional medicine

B12-folate deficiency anemia is a disease that occurs as a consequence of impaired erythrocyte maturation due to impaired synthesis of RNA and DNA in the cell, followed by the presence in the bone marrow of a large number of altered precursors of red blood cells – megaloblasts.

Causes of megaloblastic anemia

Megaloblastic anemia is caused by a lack of vitamin B12 or folic acid. These are two different and chemically independent nutrients, but the lack of each of them leads to the same result – it interferes with the production of red blood cells in the bone marrow. Sometimes the body cannot absorb them, as is the case with the terminal plexus and whole disease.

The development of megaloblastic anemia is a consequence of a deficiency in the body of vitamin B12 and folic acid, whose deficiency occurs for the following reasons:

  • insufficient food intake during fasting or after dieting;
  • violation of its adsorption in the intestine caused by various inflammatory lesions of the mucosa;
  • the absence of a part of the small intestine associated with its resection;
  • increased bodily needs for vitamin B9 associated with breastfeeding, pregnancy and certain diseases;
  • increased loss, for example during hemodialysis;
  • systemic diseases of the liver and pancreas;
  • chronic alcoholism;
  • long-term use of certain drugs.

Symptoms of megaloblastic anemia

This type of anemia is often accompanied by the development of hypoxia, as a result of which such patients complain of general weakness, headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, swelling and discomfort in various parts of the body. Symptoms include fatigue, headache, paleness, loss of appetite and inflammation in the mouth and tongue. With megaloblastic anemia, there can be a decrease in appetite, nausea, vomiting, frequent diarrhea, reduced physical strength, and the development of unpleasant sensations on the tongue. Sometimes this disease is a lesion of the central nervous system, which is manifested by tingling in the extremities.

What is the role of vitamin B12 and folic acid in the body

Vitamin B12 is required for:

Providing energy – Among other B vitamins, it does not provide energy directly, but helps maintain normal metabolism of amino acids, fats and carbohydrates. Vitamin B12 is involved in a number of intracellular processes, ensuring cell health and producing sufficient energy.

Normal functioning of the nervous system. – Vitamin B12 with folic acid is necessary for the synthesis of myelin. Myelin is a substance that surrounds nerve fibers, which protects them and provides fast signal transmission between nerve cells. If myelin is damaged, impulse transmission is disrupted. Therefore, vitamin B12 is necessary for the normal functioning of the nervous system.

Prevention of anemia.

Good blood circulation is often associated with high iron levels, but in fact folic acid and vitamin B12 play the same role. That is why they are called hematopoietic vitamins. B12 helps to break down red blood cells, which are needed to maintain a constant circulation of oxygen in our body. The constant circulation of oxygen ensures the functioning of all critical processes in the body. Therefore, B12 and folic acid deficiency are often the cause of anemia.

Homocysteine release.

Vitamin B12 also helps the body get rid of excessive amounts of homocysteine or toxins. They are formed as a result of metabolism and are toxic to cells. Therefore, it is imperative to get homocysteine out of the body. In this process, vitamin B12 helps protect the walls of blood vessels, prevents cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.


B12 participates in the methylation process, in which the “methyl group” is sacrificed to other molecules and thus maintains the chemical balance of the body and its various functions. This seemingly simple process takes place a billion times a second. It is important for mood, brain function, energy production and cleansing of the body.

How to diagnose megaloblastic anemia

When diagnosing megaloblastic anemia, a physical examination and appointment of a general and biochemical blood test is recommended. A bone marrow puncture is also needed to confirm the diagnosis.

What is the differential diagnosis

The differential diagnosis of MBA is made primarily with other types of anemia.

The combination of increased hemolysis with signs of pancytopenia is also characteristic of autoimmune pancytopenia, Markiiafava-Micheli disease.

The combination in the clinical picture of severe anemic syndrome, abdominal pain and dyspeptic disorders, icteric skin and sclera requires a targeted diagnostic examination in order to exclude oncopathology of the abdominal organs.

In all cases of vitamin B12 deficiency, broadband access invasion can be ruled out. Fragments of strobiles, eggs of parasites can sometimes be found in the stool.

The differential diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency is also made with folic acid deficiency, which is much rarer and is observed during fasting and lack of nutrition in children suffering from alcoholism, during pregnancy and when using anticonvulsants. For the purpose of differential diagnosis of these conditions, folic acid is determined in blood serum and red blood cells.

Treatment of megaloblastic anemia

Nutrition in megaloblastic anemia

• Increase the use of vitamin B12, contained in animal products (lean meat, poultry, fish, sea crabs, milk, liver, kidneys, cheese and eggs). Vegetarians face a higher risk of vitamin B12 deficiency and should take yeast extract or vitamin tablets (2-3 mg daily) as a preventative measure.

Traditional medicine for megaloblastic anemia

• To make up for the lack of these nutrients, vitamin B12 is injected and folic acid tablets are taken.

How to prevent and treat osteoporosis with a healthy lifestyle

Osteoporosis (porous bones) has taken on gigantic proportions among the population of industrialized countries. As the mineral composition of our bones is approximately 90% calcium salt, it is a widely held idea today that calcium deficiency causes osteoporosis, along with estrogen deficiency. However, although both factors play an important role in this process, there are many other factors.

In natural medicine, we place special emphasis on reading through bad life habits that contribute to an increased risk of osteoporosis, which we must avoid, both for the prevention and treatment of this disease. This information is of great interest if we consider that modern conventional treatment among many other harmful side effects includes the consumption of synthetic estrogens that can cause cancer.

In this first part, I generally deal with the story of bad life habits and other factors that cause osteoporosis. In the following parts of this text, I will deal with the description of useful foods and supplements for these patients, as well as the presentation of some therapies indicated in these cases.

What is osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis means “porous bones”.

It is a multifactorial disease, characterized by long-term loss of bone density, which increases the risk of fractures. It is a disease that generates pain, disability (due to fractures) and death associated with prolonged disability resulting fractures. Although it can affect all bones, damage the spine, hips and ribs.

Osteoporosis involves the complete deterioration of bones, that is, it includes a mineral structure and a part called the bone matrix (which consists of proteins and carbohydrates).

This fact allows us to confirm from the outset that the one-sided emphasis on calcium intake, which has marked medical campaigns against osteoporosis in recent decades, is misleading. In fact, a lack of calcium in the diet generates a disease called osteomalacia, but not osteoporosis.

It is only missing in osteomalacia calcium in bone, on the contrary, osteoporosis lacks various minerals, and the bone matrix also decays.

Unfortunately, modern medical campaigns have focused the public’s attention on calcium and hormones, forgetting the complexity of the problem. In fact, we can confirm that the set of mechanisms that regulate bone health and integrity is still not fully understood. However, various factors have been identified that promote this disease, but the general public has only received the insufficient and misleading idea that milk must be consumed in order to prevent osteoporosis.


bone osteoporosis

Bone is an active tissue, which is constantly being built (which is responsible for cells called osteoclasts) and reabsorbed or self-degrading (which is responsible for cells called osteoblasts).

During childhood and adolescence, we create bone faster than we destroy it, but between approximately 30 and 40, it reverses and we begin to lose more bone than we produce. Thus, building good bone mass in youth is essential to avoiding osteoporosis in old age.

The balance of bone metabolism is a complex process that includes hormonal, digestive, liver and kidney processes and a wide range of nutrients.

Furthermore, it must be emphasized that bone is not only composed of minerals (2/3) but also of the interstitial matrix (1/3), which consists of proteins and carbohydrates. The regulation and intervention of all these factors are only partially understood.

Types of osteoporosis

1) Menopause: associated with hormonal changes, women from 50 to 75 years.

2) Senile: persons older than 70 years (affects twice as many women as men).

3) Secondary: caused by drugs or health problems.

4) Juvenile idiopathic: in children, adolescents and young people, without obvious cause.

Diagnosis of osteoporosis

The most common method is to measure bone density with X-rays.

Two parameters are used in this exam:

T-index (T.score): compares the bone mineral density of a patient with that of a healthy white woman from 25 to 30 years of the same sex as the patient.

Z-score (Z-score): compares the patient’s bone density with the bone density of a person of the same sex, age and ethnic group as the patient.

Values established by the WHO

Greater than -1 T. Normal

Between -1 and -2.5 T. Osteopenia

Less than -2.5 Osteoporosis

Less than -2.5 and suffered one or more fractures of fragility Established osteoporosis.

Incidence of osteoporosis

Osteoporosis has become a pandemic within industrialized countries, and medium- and long-term projections indicate a steady increase in the disease.

For example, in the United States, about 44 million people have osteopenia (a decrease in bone density that can lead to osteoporosis), and 20 million have osteoporosis.

Worldwide, more than 200 million people suffer from osteoporosis and its incidence is increasing.

In the United States, 15 million fractures occur annually due to osteoporosis, and $ 27 billion is spent on their medical care.

In that country, more women die from osteoporosis than from breast and uterine cancer (combined).

Worldwide, osteoporosis affects 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 and 1 in 8 men of the same age range.

Osteoporosis-related fractures occur every 30 seconds in the United States, and hip-related fractures occur every 30 seconds in the European Union.

2007. 200 million women worldwide are diagnosed with osteoporosis. These figures affect the following depending on age:

– 1 in 10 women aged 60 years.

– 2 out of 10 women in their 70s.

– 4 out of 10 women in their 80s.

– and 6 out of 10 women in the 1990s.

In 2006. years, worldwide, there was a general osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds, and a vertebral fracture every 22 seconds. Until 2050. It is estimated that hip fractures in men will increase by 310%, and in women by 240%.


In 2009 At the age of 17, 17% of women and 9% of men over the age of 50 were diagnosed with osteoporosis.

Hip fracture is on the rise:

– 1.2 million in the 90s.

– 2.6 million estimated for 2025. year.

– And 110,055 cases by 2050. year, an increase of 431%.

Annual data in the United States

Osteoporotic fractures 1500000

Heart attack 500,000

Emboli 225000

Breast cancer 184000

Cancer of the uterus, ovaries and cervix 76000

Before we move on, a brief comment on this global panorama of osteoporosis is necessary. As the reader sees, the numbers are staggering. The question of the causes of such a disease immediately arises. Modern medicine presents it to us as something simultaneous with the human aging process: hormonal and metabolic changes, and offers us, basically, hormones and calcium for its treatment, plus another series of drugs.

Nevertheless, the evidence speaks against this perspective:

Why does osteoporosis increase and turn into an epidemic? Why does this particularly affect the population of industrialized nations?

If the solution is calcium intake, how to explain that countries with the highest calcium intake, such as the United States, have very high incidence rates of osteoporosis, as opposed to countries and / or populations that have lower calcium intake? ?

It is clear that we need to look at the matter more closely. Fortunately, as we will see, we can do a lot to effectively prevent and treat this disease.

Who is at risk for osteoporosis?

There are several invariable risk factors that affect its frequency:

Age : As we age, we lose bone mass. This begins in the third decade of life: we usually lose between 0.5 and 1% of bone mass per year. Bone loss occurs slowly but continuously, and various factors can lead to osteoporosis. As we age, the absorption of minerals and nutrients critical to the bones in the intestines decreases, and our metabolism functions less and less efficiently.

Gender: Osteoporosis primarily affects postmenopausal women. For example, in the United States, 80% of cases are women. In the early years of menopause, a woman can experience a rapid increase in bone loss (going from 1% annual loss to 7%), but up to 75. years, the risk of osteoporosis is almost the same for both sexes.

Race: White women and Asians have the highest risk of osteoporosis, and black women the lowest.

In the United States, Asian women over the age of 65 have twice the fracture rate of African-American women.

Causes of osteoporosis.

Family background

Having close relatives with osteoporosis significantly increases the risk of the disease, it is estimated that this increase can be from 60% to 80% if they have a first-degree relative who has suffered from osteoporosis.

The effect of weight

Being overly lean, ie having a very low level of body fat, inhibits the synthesis of progesterone and estrogen and contributes to an increased risk of osteoporosis.

Causes associated with modern life

So far, a scenario has been established according to which osteoporosis could be considered a pandemic inherent in the prolongation of the average life expectancy in modern society, so it seems to us to be something related to the aging process.

But while it is obvious that osteoporosis is a disease typical of the third stage of life and in which female hormonal changes play an important role, it is necessary to point out that in the modern lifestyle there are various factors that may explain the prevalence of this disease today.

As we will see, there are several factors – in addition to hormonal and age that contribute to osteoporosis, such as tobacco, coffee, alcohol, sugar, excess protein and sodium, etc. But the most important factor of all is physical activity. Exercise is the main factor that determines bone density.

Some studies have noticed that one hour of moderate exercise, three times a week, is enough to prevent bone loss and even help increase it in postmenopausal women.

In contrast, going to the opposite extreme, immobilization doubles the excretion of calcium in urine and feces, generating a serious problem of imbalance in the metabolism of the said mineral.

Even the use of plaster or immobilizers to treat fractures generates bone demineralization.

It is important to note that the type of exercise performed to strengthen the bones should carry body weight (so, for example, swimming has no pronounced effect) and to avoid exercises with a big blow.

Lifting weights can be very helpful, but of course adhering to a moderate routine, which avoids the risk of fractures or injuries due to carrying excessive weights.


Smoking has several negative effects on bone health.

It inactivates the effect of estrogen on osteoclasts, (bone cells responsible for bone resorption. Estrogen normally slows down the process of bone resorption (destruction). In addition, smoking reduces the level of estrogen in the blood.

On the other hand, smoking reduces the excretion of carbon dioxide from the lungs and generates its retention, thus increasing the level of carbonic acid in the blood. The body counteracts this acidity by extracting minerals from the bones, which are then excreted through the urinary tract. Smokers are usually less physically active.

Because of all this, women who smoke generally suffer from osteoporosis earlier than those who do not smoke.

Tobacco is a major source of cadmium pollution, a heavy metal that can affect bones.

In fact, quitting smoking is an essential part of the natural treatment of osteopenia and osteoporosis and is essential for anyone who wants to have a healthy bone mass.


Consumption of more than three drinks a day has a negative effect on bones:

Chronic consumption of alcoholic beverages can cause hyperparathyroidism, which in turn accelerates the excretion of calcium from the bones into the blood.

Alcohol inhibits the production of enzymes in the kidneys and liver that act in the metabolism of vitamin D (see below).

Alcohol reduces the action of hormones, especially affecting testosterone, which inhibits the activity of bone production (osteoclasts).

Excessive alcohol increases the production of cortisol, which in turn causes a decrease in bone production and increases bone destruction.

Alcoholism is accompanied by poor nutrition, creates toxic effects on osteoblasts that produce bones, and at the same time accelerates the action of osteoclasts, which are responsible for destroying bones.

Alcohol thus creates a profound imbalance of bone metabolism. By stopping alcohol consumption, osteoblast activity recovers.

Caffeine and stress.

Caffeine has a diuretic effect and increases the excretion of calcium in the urine, caffeine acts for 3 hours, not all day.

This effect of caffeine can be mild if:

  • do not consume more than 400 mg per day
  • if the diet provides enough calcium (600 mg or more per day)
  • A cup of coffee provides approximately 150 mg of caffeine, and a 300 ml Coca-Cola provides 45 mg.

On the other hand, let’s say caffeine stimulates the adrenal glands and contributes to stress. We have already talked about how increasing the production of the hormone cortisol, whose production increases with stress, affects bone metabolism.

Refined sugar

There is a direct correlation between the amount of daily consumption of refined sugar and the level of urinary calcium excretion.

Carbonated drinks

When the level of phosphate rises in the blood and the level of calcium decreases in correlation, the body extracts calcium from the bones to balance the balance of phosphate and calcium, and then the kidneys excrete excess calcium from the blood in the urine.

Non-alcoholic beverages that contain large amounts of phosphate (such as cola) contribute to the imbalance of calcium levels. Large amounts of phosphate are added to these soft drinks to dissolve the excess sugars they contain and improve the taste.

The contribution of soft drink hyperconsumption in Mexico to the osteoporosis pandemic will certainly be pronounced in the coming decades. This is due to the fact that more and more children and young people consume large amounts of soft drinks, which can affect the formation of their bone mass during the first 25 years of life, which is one of the decisive factors, if not the most important, risk of osteoporosis.


High consumption of animal proteins

An association between high animal protein consumption and the incidence of osteoporosis has been observed.

Since the late 1960s, some researchers have pointed out that the body dissolves bones to release minerals into the bloodstream to counteract excessive acidity.

Animal proteins (eggs, dairy products, meat) generate the balance of acids in our body when they are metabolized, on the contrary, fruits and vegetables make us alkaline and fight acidity.

In a large study, a group of researchers compared data from 34 studies conducted in 16 different countries to determine if there was a correlation between hip fracture incidence and animal protein consumption levels, the researchers found a strong correlation between animal protein consumption and hip fracture incidence. , which had no explanation regarding the level of calcium or calorie intake in the diet.

This was confirmed by studies in the Eskimos, one of the nations with the highest protein intake (and the lowest fruit and vegetable intake).

Eskimos consume more than 200 gr. daily protein, Americans about 75 gr. daily, for comparison. this is the probable cause that Eskimos have higher bone loss even at earlier ages than the United States (which has the highest risk of osteoporosis in that country).

However, let us mention that there are at least two other studies that did not find a difference in bone mass or bone metabolism, when comparing women before and after menopause who had a vegetarian diet.

In any case, more studies are needed for confirmation.

However, the two factors that characterize a vegetarian diet, less meat, more fruits and vegetables, naturally have their impact on the prevention of osteoporosis.

It is now necessary at this point to present the works of Evolutionary Medicine, which led to the justification of the Paleolithic diet, which existed for about 2.5 million years. The Paleolithic diet, although it had ecological and cultural variations, presented some contrasting parameters with the diet typical of civilization and even more with the diet typical of the industrial age: dairy products were not consumed, cereals were not consumed. The diet consisted of food of animal origin and a large amount of wild plants. Then we can confirm that it is not only the consumption of significant amounts of animal protein that creates the acid / base imbalance that slowly but systematically demineralizes us, but the high consumption of animal protein accompanied by low consumption of vegetables. Which gives us a basis for the next section.

Consumption of fruits and vegetables

The modern diet is typically associated with a progressive reduction in fruit and vegetable consumption.

There are some studies that have shown the importance of maintaining a high consumption of fruits and vegetables for bone health.

In a study conducted among the surviving participants of the famous heart health study, known as the Framinghan heart study, the correlation between diet type, supplement consumption and bone mass density, measured in the hip, was the benchmark of this group of elderly people.

Consumption of fruits and vegetables was associated with both men and women with higher bone density.

In addition, the decline in bone mass in the following years was smaller in those who consumed this food the most.

A direct correlation was also observed between magnesium and potassium intake and bone density.

Another study examined the past eating habits of premenopausal women and noted that there was a correlation between the history of high consumption of fruits and vegetables and higher bone density of the spine and trochanter.

A possible explanation for these effects lies in the contribution of magnesium and potassium obtained from food. Both minerals have an alkalizing effect, thus reducing bone loss and excretion of calcium through urine. In fact, fruits and vegetables are known to produce an alkaline (antacid) balance in the body, while meat, cheese and fish contribute to the acidity of the body.

Modern diet with high consumption of proteins and animal fats, high consumption of refined and unwanted carbohydrates (also acidifiers) and low consumption of fruits and vegetables, generates progressive acidification of the body, forcing the body to extract minerals from bones to balance PH, with consequent increased excretion minerals through the urinary tract.

We must emphasize that fruits and vegetables also provide a whole range of minerals and trace elements that are necessary for our bones.

Natural Remedies For Prostate Problems

Natural remedies cannot cure prostate problems, but they can help improve the health of this organ. Are you interested in more about that? Discover some options.

Prostate problems are more common after 50. years of age; however, young men can get them too. In many cases, the doctor can find abnormalities in this organ during a routine examination or rectal test.

Fortunately, there are a number of home remedies that can serve as a prevention or aid against prostate disease, especially when they are associated with a healthy lifestyle.

However, it should be noted that natural remedies for the prostate are not the first line of treatment for diseases and do not have miraculous properties. Simply consuming them regularly can contribute to the health of this organ.

Prostate and its disorders

The prostate is a gland that helps produce sperm. Therefore, it is part of the male reproductive system. This gland surrounds the tube that is responsible for removing urine, which goes from the bladder to the outside.

Although it is the size of a walnut, it increases with age. This can lead to significant health problems. In parallel with the publication in the National Institute on Aging, some of the most common problems of this gland are:

Prostatitis: inflammation of the prostate. The cause is usually bacteria.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia : it is an excessive enlargement of the prostate, often in men over 50 years of age. It causes urination disorders or the need to urinate, especially at night.

Prostate cancer: causes pain and difficulty urinating.

Natural Remedies For Prostate Problems

All signs of prostate disease should be examined by a doctor or urologist. Although many times they do not pose any risk, it is better to get the appropriate diagnostic tests. Furthermore, in case of illness, these experts are the only ones who have the authority to suggest treatment.

Frankly, we are discovering those home remedies that can help promote prostate health. Generally, they can be included as part of the regular child , as long as there are no contraindications.

Pumpkin seed

One of the popular remedies for glandular problems is pumpkin seeds. This is primarily due to its content in zinc, a mineral useful for the prostate. In fact, a small study published in the journal Urologia Internationalis found that pumpkin could be useful in benign prostatic hyperplasia.

On the other hand, according to research published in Current Opinion, this seed concentrates a substance called beta-sitosterol, which can improve urine flow and reduce the amount of urine that remains in the bladder after urination. Consume them as a snack or add them to soups, juices and smoothies .

Watermelon seed tea

In popular culture, watermelon seed tea is said to help remove waste from the body and improve bladder and kidney problems. In that regard, a small study published in the European Journal of Medicinal Plants, done on rats, found that this ingredient improves the level of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and the symptoms of an enlarged prostate.

Although the evidence is limited, it is believed that they could cause a similar effect in men. So, if you want to try it, grind fresh watermelon seeds (one tablespoon) and add them to a cup of hot water. When it is cold, consume it up to 2 times a day.


In popular natural history literature nettle is one of the herbs used to treat prostate problems. It is especially believed to help in case of enlargement of this organ. Although more studies are needed, the research conducted in 2015. has been shown to have beneficial effects against benign prostatic hyperplasia.

It can be taken as a supplement, infusion or prepared in other recipes. You have to be careful when handling nettles because you can get burned. In addition, it should be borne in mind that it is contraindicated in case of diabetes, low blood pressure or kidney problems.

Tomato to take care of the prostate

There is no food that can prevent or treat chronic diseases like cancer on its own. However, there are studies that suggest that some of the components of these plants may help.

For example, a study published in the journal of the National Cancer Institute explains that lycopene, the main antioxidant in tomatoes, is associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer. In this case, you can take advantage of its properties by consuming tomato juice or adding it to salads and soups.

Other natural remedies for prostate

Pao d´´arco; boil ½ water, add 1 tablespoon of peeled peel, leave for 10 minutes, strain, pour a drop of lemon and drink 3 glasses a day for a week.

Velcro or marine eringium; boil ½ water, add 20g of eringium root, take 3 times a day.

Devil’s Claw; Boil ½ water with 40 g of tubers, 30 g of white willow, 10 g of horsetail, 5 g of mint, you can add honey, lemon, stevia and drink 3 glasses a day.

Infusions; (cayenne pepper, soy, rye grass pollen, African plum, java tea, peigeum, garlic, ginger, horsetail, dandelion, walnut and cat’s claw).

Main preventive measures or treatments for prostatitis: (drink 4 liters of water, dietary hygiene, sexual hygiene, hot baths, frequent urination, bactericidal antibiotics, analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, thermotherapy, herbal medicines and visit a urologist).

Prostate drugs

Consumption of these natural remedies can help prevent and reduce the progression of some prostate problems. However, they are only a supplement and are by no means a substitute for treatment. Whenever a disease is suspected, a specialist should be consulted.

Aurobin – removes the feeling of burning and discomfort, relieves pain. The drug can be used not only in inflammation, but also in the presence hemorrhoids .

Fleming’s ointment – contains calendula, which removes inflammation and strengthens the walls of blood vessels.

Treatment of allergic rhinitis

Causes and symptoms of allergies

This is the immune system’s response to substances such as grass and tree pollen, mold spores, house dust or animal dandruff (hanging fur or peeled pet skin). Symptoms include a stuffy or runny nose, watery eyes, headache, dizziness, scratching in the throat and sneezing.

The cause of allergic rhinitis and hay fever is common allergy on pollen, fungi, hair, fur, dust. These substances are harmless to most people, but in people who suffer from allergies to inhalation, they cause a hypertrophied immune response. This causes a cascade of biochemical reactions, which leads to a mass release into the blood of histamine and other chemical compounds that cause inflammation and the formation of mucus in the nasal passages and sinuses.

Similarities and differences between allergic and non-allergic rhinitis

From a medical point of view, rhinitis is defined as inflammation of the nasal mucosa, which is characterized by rhinorrhea (front and back), sneezing, nasal congestion and / or itchy nose. These symptoms occur for at least two consecutive days and last for more than 1 hour most days.

There are two main forms of rhinitis: allergic and non-allergic.

Symptoms that develop in the nasal cavity as a result of an immune-mediated hypersensitivity reaction are allergic rhinitis (AR). AR is the most common form of non-infectious rhinitis, which develops as a result of an IgE-mediated immune response to allergens. AR is often accompanied by ocular symptoms.

For all other forms of rhinitis in which the involvement of allergic mechanisms has not been proven, it is suggested to turn to non-allergic rhinitis (NAR).

There is a detailed study of potential triggers and criteria for the differential diagnosis of AR and NAR. Many non-allergic effects are known to cause nasal symptoms that mimic allergic rhinitis. These include medications (aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), occupational factors, food, physical and chemical agents, stress, and viral infections.

Pathognomonic markers that distinguish allergic rhinitis from non-allergic rhinitis are actively sought. Different types of inflammatory reactions, especially eosinophilic inflammation, are the main ones in allergic reactions. However, the presence of an increased number of eosinophils, IL-5 or even polyclonal IgE in tissues and circulating blood, without significant antibody activity, does not necessarily mean an allergic reaction.

The same cytokines (interleukins) they produce immune system cells and / or effector cells and involved in beneficial and harmful effects are not necessarily markers of allergic reactions. It is known that various substances can act as polyclonal IgE stimulants. One example is Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxins, sometimes called “superantigens”, which are apparently able to stimulate eosinophilic inflammation and IgE-mediated response in typical non-allergic nasal polyps. Another example is cigarette smoke. The microscopic and immunological appearance of the nasal mucosa in biopsy samples may be the same for classic allergic and non-allergic rhinitis.

Symptoms of hay fever (allergic rhinitis)

The first symptoms are irritation, secretions in the nose, throat, palate, inflammation and redness of the eyes. This is followed by runny nose, sneezing, shortness of breath, eye irritation. In some cases, conjunctivitis may develop.

Consequences of hay fever

Pollen fever can lead to worsening of chronic diseases of the upper respiratory tract, including infectious sinusitis, otitis, tracheitis, bronchitis and bronchial asthma. It also causes hypertrophy of the tonsils and adenoids, improper obstruction in children with oral breathing, loss of taste and smell, insomnia and increased asthma syndrome.

Allergies – hay fever and rhinitis

Prevention of hay fever (allergic rhinitis)

Window nets and sunglasses greatly reduce pollen access.

The air conditioner keeps the home clean in the heat.

Ionizers help remove pollen, dust and other allergens in the air.

Mattress covers reduce dust irritation.

Diet for hay fever (allergic rhinitis)

Vitamin C in combination with bioflavonoids acts as a natural antihistamine to stop colds or nasal congestion. Increase your vitamin C intake by consuming more citrus.

Homeopathic treatment of hay fever

A preliminary electronic publication based on a study examining the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of pollinosis appeared in the International Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (TJACM). Kushal Banerjee, a fourth-generation homeopath from a family clinic in New Delhi, India, Robert Matti from the Institute of Homeopathy in London, Seira Costello from the London Department of Health Research at Imperial College, and Jeremy Hovik.

The researchers analyzed and systematized the results of 11 previous studies examining the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis with glaucoma (grapefruit, an evergreen shrub that grows in Mexico and Central America) and other homeopathic remedies. 8 of these 11 studies were considered inappropriate due to the “high risk of systemic errors”. Three studies on the use of half-chemistry were assessed by experts as of different quality. Only one study proved reliable enough – about the use of homeopathic nasal spray.

Treatment of half-mimicry showed a small positive result in 2–4 weeks: the symptoms of rhinitis in patients using it decreased by 1.48 compared with 1.27 in the placebo group; symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis – by 1.55 compared to 1.37 in the control group. Homeopathic nasal spray does not differ in its action from the usual medicine.

“Since allergic rhinitis is one of the most common manifestations of allergies (according to some estimates, up to 500 million people suffer in the world), all methods of treating this condition are worth paying attention to,” said Kushal Banerjee.

In recent years, medical science has denied the possibility of treating allergic rhinitis with homeopathy. The World Health Organization is 2010. declared the effectiveness of such treatment unproven. However, many people still trust homeopathy more for fear of the serious side effects that traditional treatment can cause.

Acne and its treatment – diet, herbs, homeopathy

The reasons that contribute to the development of acne can be hormonal imbalance , weakened immunity, stress, hyperkeratosis, various diseases of the digestive system, dysbacteriosis. The reason may be excessive work of human sebaceous glands, inflammatory processes, properties of the skin microflora. External factors can also cause acne, such as heat and humid climate, solar radiation, excessive cleanliness or mania for cleanliness, some specific medications.

Juvenile pimples and spots on the face, neck and back.

They appear as a result of hormonal changes during the maturation period, which lead to increased functioning of the sebaceous glands and clogged pores. They are also common in adults, especially women before menstruation and if they take contraceptives.

Symptoms of acne

The symptoms of acne are a rash on the skin in the form of black, white pimples, cystic formations with purulent contents. The rash is accompanied by pain, itching, redness and swelling of the affected area.

What is important to know about acne on the face, why they occur

The most common cause of acne on the face is hormonal restructuring of the body. Of course, the teenage period is the clearest example of this condition. In human life, this is the period with the most hormonal activities. Inside the body, a hormonal storm is raging, and outside we see the consequences of that – a harsh voice, a change in body proportions and, alas, acne. Few manage to avoid this scourge. Even if the growth is within normal limits, and the skin is quite thin and smooth, it is impossible to pass puberty without a single pimple – they will certainly appear, although sometimes in small quantities. Similar work of hormonal glands occurs in women during pregnancy and in certain phases of the menstrual cycle (and this can be accompanied in some cases by acne) or in certain endocrine problems in older people. Even newborns can have acne-related conditions. NStre, even bad air, can become pathogenic with acne.

Development from ordinary skin blemishes to acne

Acne and blackheads do not only appear on the face. Chest, neck and shoulders are quite common places for inflammation of the sebaceous glands. Acne on the back even has its name – throw up. Acne mainly affects teenagers and adults.

Acne on the body is caused by the same factors as acne on the face, ie hypertrophied sebaceous glands and bacteria.

When sebum or dead cells accumulate inside the follicle, it becomes clogged. Then it turns black and when the bacteria enters, an inflamed pimple is created.

There are more sebaceous glands on the face, back, shoulders and forearms, so the follicles become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells.

Heat, friction and sweat can cause some types of acne

Rubbing or pressing on the skin in combination with heat or sweat can irritate and inflame the follicles, causing mechanical acne. The reason is tight clothing, tight collars, backpacks, belt straps and sportswear or equipment.

Sweat can also cause acne. To reduce irritation, take a shower immediately after exercise or work. Do not use aggressive hygiene products: gels, shower soap with scents, mineral oil, synthetic components. Carefully clean the skin and use makeup with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide.

Acne and its treatment – diet, herbal homeopathy

Diet for acne

Avoid fats, sugars, refined and prepared foods. Eat more raw fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and cereals, cooked dried peas, skim milk products, chicken and fish.

Eat foods rich in zinc such as poultry, fish, whole grain breads and cereals.

Homeopathy for acne

For itching: potassium bichromate (Kali bichromicum).

For redness and inflammation: sulfur.

In case of hypersensitivity: sulfur (Hepar sulfphuris).

Take 1 tablet 3 times a day a week and repeat if necessary

Traditional medicine against acne

Benzene peroxide gels and creams are recommended for unclogging pores. Doctors prescribe antibiotics to reduce the infection of the pores. Vitamin A-based creams and medications limit the secretion of sebaceous glands, but can have side effects, such as inflammation of the eyes and lips and redness of the skin. Special oral contraceptives are also available to fight female acne. Sometimes doctors recommend sun exposure or radiation with a quartz lamp.

Drug addiction – what is it?

Drug addiction is a painful addiction or dependence on opiates that are used in various ways (swallowing, inhalation, intravenous injection) to achieve dizziness or to relieve pain.

Drug addiction (from the Greek. Drugs – tingling and mania – madness, enthusiasm) – in medicine, a disease characterized by a pathological desire for drugs, which leads to severe dysfunction of the body; in psychology – the need to use any drugs or chemicals to avoid discomfort resulting from discontinuation, ie. chemical dependence; in sociology – a type of deviant behavior.

Addiction includes two forms of addiction:

Mental dependence is a condition of the body characterized by a pathological need to use any drug or narcotic drug to avoid mental disorders or discomfort that occur when the addictive substance is stopped, but without somatic symptoms (Erickson et al. 1990). )

Physical dependence is a condition that characterizes the development of abstinence after cessation of the use of an addictive substance or after the introduction of its antagonists (Erickson et al. 1990).

Treatment of drug addiction with natural remedies

Traditional methods of drug treatment do not eliminate the help provided by narcologists. No infusion or decoction of herbs is able to provide the level of pain relief that opium addicts need during abstinence. However, there are recipes with folk remedies to calm the nervous system.

Recipes for the treatment of addiction to folk remedies (herbs)

If we talk about herbal treatment, then plants that have a positive effect and are relatively safe for addicts can be:

Valerian , which contributes to the normalization of sleep, fights increased excitability and anxiety.

Blueberry fruits , as well as the leaves have a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect, as well as diuretic properties, which can be used for detoxification to accelerate the elimination of drugs through urine.

Abscess and its treatment – diet, aromatherapy, herbs

An abscess, what does it represent

An abscess is a purulent inflammation of the tissue with the formation of a purulent cavity. It can occur in muscles, bones, subcutaneous tissue, in organs and between them. Abscesses can develop on their own or as a complication of other diseases (trauma, pneumonia, angina).

If a large amount of pus accumulates, the abscess may rupture, leading to pus coming out. This causes an inflammatory process, which can cause blood vessel sepsis and other, no less dangerous consequences.

Therefore, it is necessary to know how to treat an abscess at an early stage.

Accumulation of pus in the tissue bag occurs as a result of decomposed bacteria that the body destroys.

Abscess: causes and factors of development

Like any other purulent disease, an abscess develops due to a violation of the integrity of the skin and the penetration of pathogenic purulent bacteria into the body. In the reproduction of bacteria on the skin, pus appears and bumps form that fill with pus. It should be noted that some bacteria are capable of causing abscesses as part of the normal microflora of our organism. However, under certain conditions, these bacteria begin to multiply uncontrollably, creating purulent masses. A large number of these microorganisms inhabit the mucous membrane of the mouth, nasal cavity, genitals, mucous membranes of the eye, small and large intestines.

It should be noted that it is quite difficult to detect the pathogen of an abscess, and the effectiveness of treatment depends on the exact identification of the microorganism. There are a large number of pathogenic bacteria that can cause soft tissue abscesses.
