Hair loss: stop using “effective preparations”!

Which hair loss medications can be used depends on the type of hair loss and its causes. We present the concept against hair loss.

There are many remedies for hair loss. Few of them can be called “natural”. Also, very few of these drugs treat the real causes of hair loss. Natural remedies are different. They solve the problem at the root – in the true sense of the word.

But let’s start with the different types of hair loss. Because each type of hair loss has its specific causes, so each type of hair loss should be treated and taken seriously.

These are the types of hair loss

Hair loss is roughly divided into four different types of hair loss, with the fifth “type” being a special case:

  • Hereditary hair loss (also known as androgenic or hereditary hair loss)
  • Circular hair loss (Alopecia areata)
  • Diffuse hair loss
  • Hair loss with scars
  • Special case: hair loss during chemotherapy

Hereditary or androgenic hair loss

Hereditary or androgenic hair loss can affect women and men alike, and the vast majority of men are affected. This form of hair loss is called hereditary, because hereditary hypersensitivity of certain hair follicles to the hormone DHT.

DHT stands for 5-alpha dihydrotestosterone. It belongs to androgens, which belong to sex hormones. Androgens are responsible for male characteristics such as strong muscle development, beard growth, body hair and a deep voice.

DHT is made from testosterone by a specific enzyme (5-alpha reductase), and DHT is more active than two male hormones.

Androgenic hair loss in women

If women of reproductive age are affected by androgenic hair loss, the hair thins. Women also have elevated levels of testosterone or dihydrotestosterone, with PCOS, polycystic ovary syndrome, very often involved. It is the most common hormonal disorder in women of reproductive age.

Androgenic hair loss in men

In men, androgenic hair loss is not so easily influenced by natural measures. However, there are herbal remedies that can be used to gently affect the hormonal balance.

It is also now assumed that diet and lifestyle affect gene expression, so that a person is not always at the mercy of his genes for better or worse.

Therefore, a holistic approach is also very beneficial for androgenic hair loss, which – even if it could not reverse hair loss – can often lead to slowing down and moreover not only have a positive effect on hair and scalp health, but in any case general health. significantly improves mental performance and physical fitness.

Circular hair loss

Circular hair loss (alopecia ariata) occurs in rounded, completely bald areas on the head. In extreme cases, however, all the hair and hair can fall out, even the rest of the body.

Circular hair loss is currently considered an autoimmune disease, which means that the body’s own defense cells (so-called cytotoxic T cells) attack the hair follicle cells in places, believing that these are foreign structures that need to be fought. . Studies have found infiltration of cytotoxic T cells in the affected areas of the scalp.

Other autoimmune diseases are often present in circular hair loss. If so, the prognosis seems less good. After a few years, nail changes can occur in over 60 percent of patients (longitudinal grooves, fragility, rough surface, etc.).

Up to 50 percent of sufferers fully recover from circular hair loss during the year. At up to 25 percent, however, it increases to the point of complete loss of all hair on the head or even the entire body.

Diffuse hair loss

With diffuse hair loss, the hair becomes lighter. So there are no single bald spots. In most cases, women are affected.

Diffuse hair loss is usually of the late type, which means that the harmful effect interrupts the hair growth phase (see the next section “Three phases of the hair life cycle”) and the hair goes into a resting phase. It lasts up to 4 or even up to 6 months. Only then does the hair fall out, so in the case of diffuse hair loss, you should always think about what happened a few weeks or months ago, which could be a harmful factor, so that you can then take appropriate measures.

Possible harmful factors include:

childbirth,

Infections,

high temperature,

Hemorrhage (excessive blood loss),

Diseases of internal organs (e.g. Liver, thyroid (usually insufficiently active thyroid) and other endocrine organs,

Severe diseases (cancer, tuberculosis, etc.),

strict diets or periods of starvation or generally chronic deficiencies of nutrients or vital substances (e.g. iron deficiency due to abundant

menstruation, zinc deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, etc.)

accident or operative trauma,

severe emotional stress and some medications (e.g., beta blockers, statins, thyroid medications, or blood thinners).

The following possible causes can be added:

Improper hair care or coloring with chemical hair dyes as well as one

Pollution (eg heavy metals)

Allergies

Menopause

Chronic acidosis

Hair loss with scars

Hair loss with scars appears on bald spots that eventually become scars. This hair loss is often associated with irreversible damage to the hair follicles. Hair no longer grows in the relevant areas. Because strong inflammatory processes are present during this form of hair loss, conventional medicine treats corticoids (cortisone) to prevent inflammation and stop hair loss.

However, inflammation of hair loss with scars does not occur without other factors. Hair loss is associated with certain diseases, such as lupus erythematosus ,, psoriasis ,, Fungal Infections or certain tumors. Since these diseases are the real cause of hair loss, the focus of therapy should not be on hair loss, but on the disease that triggers it.

Special case: hair loss during chemotherapy

Chemotherapy damages all hair that is in the growth phase (see the next section for the three phases of the hair life cycle). The damage is so great that these hairs do not go into the resting phase, but break at the root immediately or within a few weeks. There is talk of hair loss (effluvium) of the early type.

For now, only those hairs remain that were already dormant during chemotherapy (ie, a maximum of 20 percent of the total hair), but which also fall out 87ztrde4w no later than 2 to 4 months.

Because hair follicle cells belong to those cells that divide very quickly, the follicles recover quickly, so that the first new hairs can be seen again only 4 weeks after the end of chemotherapy. Sometimes it takes a little longer (6 to 8 weeks).

Hair loss cannot be prevented here, but you can speed up and support the regeneration of the body with measures for detoxification and strengthening after chemotherapy (after consulting a doctor).

Three phases of the hair life cycle

Hair is subject to a certain developmental cycle. Three phases can be distinguished here. If you know this, you will better understand why hair does not always fall out immediately after the harmful effect, but maybe only after a few weeks.

Anagen = growth phase: 2 to 10 (usually 3 to 6) years, hair grows. The longer the anagen, the longer the hair becomes. Anyone who has hair that does not grow for a particularly long time has a shorter phase of anagen. In healthy people, 80 percent of hair is in anagen. If it is a harmful effect, then the hair turns into catagen, and then into telogen, so that weeks or months can pass after the harmful effect until hair loss is shown.

Catagen = transition phase: 2 weeks, during which time the hair follicles stop their metabolic activity, the hair is no longer delivered and also no longer grows.

Telogen = resting phase: 2 to 4 months, at the end of the telogen phase hair falls out. In this condition, it should be less than 20 percent of the hair.

Can Pfeiffer’s glandular fever cause or trigger hair loss?

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is currently thought to be responsible for Pfeiffer’s glandular fever, especially autoimmune diseases, which is why researchers at the University of Texas / Houston investigated a possible link to circular hair loss back in 2008.

Of the 1586 patients with circular hair loss who felt that external factors caused their hair loss, 12 people had EBV infection in the six months before hair loss, which is less than 1 percent, but still shows that EBV infection can be risk factor.

Causes that may be responsible for hair loss

Earlier in the introduction of different types of hair loss, we have already listed some of the causes. However, from a naturopathic point of view, we will also ask the question:

Why does androgenic hair loss lead to hair follicle hypersensitivity to DHT and why do women develop a hormonal disorder (PCOS)? People will ask themselves, how is it that an autoimmune disease develops and the body turns against itself? Why does the thyroid gland no longer work properly, so that an inactive thyroid gland is diagnosed?

In all these cases, there is an imbalance in the body. Certain influences prevent healthy reactions of the organism, lead to irritation, malfunctions, in the intestines, IBS, which could accelerate the development of autoimmune diseases. These negative impacts include:

  • poor nutrition (which nourishes the body and at the same time does not provide enough vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients)
  • overloaded liver
  • intestinal flora disorder or poor intestinal health
  • lack of stress management
  • too many stimulants (alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, caffeine)
  • too little sleep, too little fresh air, and too little exercise
  • unnatural hair and body care

All of these factors cause disorders in the system (in the immune system, in the hormonal system, etc.) and can eventually lead to hair loss. So, what to do in case of hair loss from a holistic point of view?

These drugs are used for hair loss

In naturopathy, individual drugs against this or that are rarely used. On the other hand, a holistic attitude is approached and the above problematic habits are corrected.

Even holistic concepts for autoimmune diseases (including circular hair loss or causative diseases due to hair loss scars) now consist of the same measures listed below that have been recommended in naturopathy for decades for diseases of all kinds (see “Treating Autoimmune Diseases Successfully” by Dr. Susan Blum):

Healthy diet

Strengthen the liver

Intestinal health rehabilitation

Proper stress management

Optimization of individual supply of vital substances (acidification, mineralization and elimination of vitamin deficiency)

Detox the body if needed

Quality sleep, fresh air and lots of exercise

Natural body and hair care products

Targeted dietary supplements adapted to the individual situation

If there is diffuse hair loss, most of the possible causes of diffuse hair loss can also be automatically eliminated by this concept.

Naturopathic anti-hair loss medications do not only treat the scalp, hormonal system or immune system. Instead, they provide the body with everything it needs to find a healthy and harmonious balance, and hair loss can often be stopped and new hair growth can begin.

In addition, of course, means can be used that have a specific effect on harmonizing and strengthening the health of the scalp and thus prevent hair loss directly on the spot and ensure new hair growth, e.g. B. natural hair lotions, hair tonics, hair conditioners, etc.

However, these drugs should be seen only as additional measures, because the real correction of hair loss always comes from within, ie. when the organism regains strength and can solve the problem independently thanks to its re-self-regulation.

Only in the case of genetic hair loss, individual drugs are needed that specifically affect the hormonal system and thus reduce the harmful effects of high levels of DHT on hair follicles:

    Three drugs for androgenic / genetic hair loss

    According to initial studies, the following three natural substances can lower DHT levels, ie. Prevent the conversion of testosterone to DHT. These three drugs include:

    • Sulforaphane – a secondary herbal substance that is especially found in broccoli and broccoli sprouts and is known for its strong antioxidant effects in the fight against cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
    • Pumpkin seed oil
    • Palmetto saw extract

    Sulforaphane for genetic hair loss

    We wrote a lot about sulforaphane – it works as a substance against cancer and arthritis, on how it gives hope to people with autism, it helps with respiratory diseases.

    Sulforaphane is one of the so-called isothiocyanates, which are sometimes called mustard oil glycosides. Sulforaphane is found in especially large quantities in broccoli, but – in smaller quantities – in all other cabbage vegetables such as cauliflower and kohlrabi, horseradish, rocket, cress, radish and many other vegetables from the cruciferous family.

    Sulforaphane has been studied in a Japanese study because of its effects on genetic hair loss. Researchers in March 2016. wrote that sulforaphane apparently managed to reduce DHT levels.

    According to the researchers, sulforaphane increases the expression of the enzyme that breaks down DHT. It is the enzyme 3-alpha-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3a-HSD).

    Researchers have not yet given specific dosage recommendations to combat hair loss for use in humans. However, the University Hospital in Heidelberg recommends 0.36 mg of sulforaphane per kilogram of body weight for cancer therapy, which can be a guide for dosing and use.

    If you take sulforaphane as a dietary supplement, then a daily meal – depending on the product – provides 50 to 100 mg of sulforaphane.

    One broccoli (500 g) contains about 50 mg of sulforaphane – always depending on the season, variety and freshness. Broccoli sprouts provide up to 100 times more sulforaphane, so a tablespoon of sprouts can contain as much sulforaphane as a head of broccoli.

    So, if you eat a lot of broccoli or vegetables mentioned above, as well as broccoli sprouts, in addition to dietary supplements, you could achieve an effective dose very quickly.

    Pumpkin seed oil for genetic hair loss

    Another natural remedy for genetic hair loss may be pumpkin oil. The oil inhibited the enzyme 5-alpha reductase in a randomized placebo-controlled study from 2014. years. This enzyme enables the conversion of testosterone to DHT. If inhibited, DHT levels do not rise as much.

    In a Korean study, 76 men with genetic hair loss received 400 mg of pumpkin oil or placebo daily for six months. At the end of the study, it was determined that the pumpkin seed oil group had fuller hair than the placebo group. Hair increased by 40 percent. No side effects were found.

    In case of genetic hair loss, you can take a spoonful of pumpkin oil every day or simply prepare a daily salad with pumpkin oil dressing.

    Palmetto saw for genetic hair loss

    Preparations made from the fruits of the saw palmetto (palmetto saw extract) are known for their positive effect on benign prostate enlargement (benign prostatic hyperplasia / BPH). Already in 1996. In the review, it was found that palmette extract (160 mg twice daily for 1 to 3 months) can achieve equally good results in BPH as finasteride 5 mg.

    Although the specific cause of BPH is still unknown, DHT is believed to be involved. On the one hand, there may be high levels of DHT, on the other hand, it is suspected that the cause is the dominance of estrogen (the level of estrogen increases in relation to the level of testosterone).

    Palmetto saw extract now seems to be able to reduce DHT levels. This increases testosterone levels – an effect that is especially evident when palmetto saw extract is combined with astaxanthin, as we have described here: treating testosterone deficiency

    A drop in DHT levels would also be helpful in the case of genetically induced hair loss. The less DHT in the blood, the less DHT around the hair roots and the less hair will fall out.

    Therefore, in 2012. the researchers examined the effects of saw palmetto extract on genetically induced hair loss (compared to the effects of finasteride) in the study. They reported their new findings in the International Journal of Immunopathology and Pharmacology:

    The study involved 100 male patients diagnosed with genetic hair loss. One group took 320 mg of palmette extract daily for six months, while the other took 1 mg of finasteride daily.

    Although finasteride as a whole was more successful, many men (38 percent) who took sawdust palmetto extract also showed higher hair growth. Palmetto saw extract was especially effective in the crown area, ie. Less in the area of the front head.

    How to combine three drugs against genetic hair loss

    If you prefer to try natural remedies for genetic hair loss, you can very well combine the three described measures:

    Palmetto saw extract and sulforaphane are taken as dietary supplements. We recommend this palmetto saw extract in high doses against hair loss  i  100 mg sulforaphane daily.

    In addition, broccoli, broccoli sprouts and pumpkin seed oil (and pumpkin seeds as well) are often included in the menu. We recommend that you grow broccoli sprouts yourself.

    How can probiotics help against hair loss?

    Poor intestinal health and diseased intestinal flora (dysbiosis) are now considered the main causes of many chronic diseases. Therefore, probiotics are often recommended to regulate the intestinal flora. These are preparations with beneficial intestinal bacteria that renew the intestinal mucosa, have anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects, expel harmful bacteria, have a positive effect on the immune system and can even alleviate stress reactions.

    It is these properties that are needed for hair loss. Since hair loss is often associated with inflammatory processes in hair follicles, it can also be associated with stress  and in the case of circular hair loss, it may actually be the result of dysbiosis. Therefore, it is suspected that taking probiotics can help with hair loss, as several studies with mice have already shown. Animals receiving probiotics always had good hair growth and shiny hair, which was not the case in the control groups.

    In the study at Massachusetts Institute of Technology probiotics were found to lead to an enormous increase in active hair follicles in mice. Thus, there was much more hair in the active growth anagen phase than in animals that were not given probiotics. Overall, it could even be observed that the probiotic mice as a whole were in a condition that is usually typical of much younger mice. Probiotic bacteria also had a rejuvenating effect on animals.

    In traditional Chinese medicine, hair loss and unhealthy-looking hair are also signs of indigestion. Because in the case of digestive disorders, nutrients are no longer absorbed and used so well, so even with hair problems, rehabilitation of the intestinal flora is an important measure so that the hair can be fully nourished again.

    In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study from 2013. It was also found in over 120 participants that using only probiotics (with L. reuteri) for 9 weeks could increase vitamin D levels by 25 percent – and there Healthy levels vitamin D. is also important for hair growth, probiotics they can also help here by a detour towards a faster goal and results.

    Vitamin deficiency in hair loss

    Deficiencies of vital substances can damage the hair structure and lead to diffuse hair loss, but they can also weaken the body, so other forms of hair loss are favored. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are by no means common only in poor countries, which we would like to believe.

    In particular, hair follicles are among the most metabolically active areas in the body and are therefore particularly dependent on a sufficient amount of nutrients. A good supply of vital substances is therefore part of the concept of treating every type of hair loss.

    It would be ideal to first clarify which vitamins and / or minerals are actually lacking so that they can be targetedly added to the diet. If you simply take the preparations at random, you risk that the doses contained in them will not be enough to eliminate the possible deficiency. Most skin and hair supplements are insufficient.

    The exceptions are hair vitamins that are needed for optimal hair growth and good hair health, e.g. iron, zinc, selenium, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, biotin, millet extract, L-cysteine, etc.

    With vitamin A, care must be taken not to take an overdose, e.g. with offal, cod liver oil or other supplements, because too much vitamin A can cause hair loss!

    Zinc for hair loss

    Zinc deficiency can often be seen in patients with hair loss, which is why you should always check the status of zinc stores in case of hair loss. 2013 study confirmed frequent zinc deficiency in hair loss, while copper levels were normal.

    In 2013 It was determined that out of 312 patients with hair loss (circular hair loss, hereditary hair loss, diffuse hair loss), ALL had lower levels of zinc than the control group, which did not have hair loss.

    If hair loss is caused by zinc deficiency, it can be easily remedied by taking zinc supplements, as a small study from 2012 found. years. Even circular hair loss often improves significantly if there is a zinc deficiency, and then 50 mg of zinc is taken over a 12-week period, according to a 2009 study.

    It is not clear whether hair loss can be improved by giving zinc even if there was no previous zinc deficiency. The study showed that after zinc intake, hair loss can be reduced, even if a proven zinc deficiency cannot be determined.

    If you need zinc preparations with a higher dose and easily tolerated with zinc deficiency, we recommend chelated zinc , which provides 30 mg of zinc per capsule.

    Hair loss: iron, vitamin C and L-lysine

    Iron deficiency is a common cause of diffuse hair loss, especially in women, so iron levels (ferritin for iron storage) should be checked in any case, which you can do yourself with a home test for iron values.

    If you are looking for a well-tolerated iron supplement, purely herbal and without a prescription, here is a choice: 

    Iron from curry leaves (15 mg of iron per day) with vitamin C from acerola extract or

    chelated iron

    However, sometimes iron supplements simply do not work and it is difficult to raise the level of iron. The amino acid L-lysine can be used here as a support, because it helps in the absorption of iron and zinc.

    If you take L-lysine together with iron, the level of ferritin can increase more easily in this way, as shown by a study with patients with hair loss who did not react on their own to iron supplements.

    In order to improve the absorption of iron from plant foods, it is also important to optimize the supply of vitamin C, because vitamin C can greatly stimulate the absorption of iron, so vitamin C alone can often improve iron deficiency without the need for additional iron.

    Reach for fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C or choose a natural vitamin C supplement  organic acerola powder which provides over 130 mg of vitamin C per gram.

    L-cysteine

    Another important amino acid in hair loss is L-cysteine. The amino acid that contains sulfur is needed to build keratin, the main component of our hair. L-cysteine provides resistance and strength of keratin and therefore can repair damaged hair structure, and can also be helpful in case of diffuse hair loss. The recommended minimum dose is 1400 mg of L-cysteine per day. 

    L-cysteine is contained in relatively small amounts in food, the steak gives only 240 mg of L-cysteine per 100 g. Rice protein also contains only about 200 mg per serving, hemp protein approximately 100 mg, so pure L-cysteine products would have to be used if you want to improve the disrupted keratin production with this amino acid.

    Is there a vitamin D deficiency in case of hair loss?

    In the case of existing hair loss (either circular, diffuse or similar), it should also be clarified whether there is a lack of vitamin D, because it can also encourage hair loss.

    2013. Researchers from the University of Cairo showed that women with diffuse hair loss have much lower levels of vitamin D (about 11 to 12 ng / ml) than women without hair loss. It was also noticed that the level of vitamin D was lower the more pronounced the hair loss and the longer this condition lasted.

    Do omega-3 fatty acids help with hair loss?

    The supply of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) should be able to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase (an enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT), which would be significant given genetic hair loss.

    Gamma-linolenic acid is especially found in borage seed oil or black currant seed oil, which can be taken as a dietary supplement. Gamma-linolenic acid can also be produced by the body itself from linoleic acid (omega 6, eg in sunflower oil, safflower oil, etc.).

    Balance with omega-3 fatty acids is also important, because they are taken too little compared to omega-6 fatty acids.

    Vegan algae oil capsules  or fish oil capsules are recommended as a dietary supplement with omega-3 fatty acids.
    Due to the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids that improve blood flow, such a dietary supplement also has an extremely positive effect on many other chronic ailments.

    Biotin for hair loss and loss

    Biotin is often taken for hair loss, and also for brittle nails. However, according to critics, biotin deficiency is rare because the intestinal flora can produce enough biotin. But it can only do so if it is in good condition, which is often no longer the case today, because there are too many harmful influences that affect the intestinal flora (antibiotics, other drugs, poor nutrition, chemicals from the environment, etc.).

    2017 Review He examined the literature on the effects of biotin on hair and nail growth. In all 18 cases in which patients received a dietary supplement with biotin, previously poor hair growth or previously poor nail quality improved. However, many subjects suffered from a deficiency of the enzyme that leads to biotin deficiency.

    Biotin participates in the good health of hair and scalp, but since many other vital substances are decisive, if there are other deficiencies, a dietary supplement with biotin alone will not help much, so you should always think about all the necessary vital substances.

    When buying a biotin supplement, pay attention to the dosage. Often only very small amounts of biotin are found.

    Silicon (silicon dioxide) is very important

    Unfortunately, silicon is a trace element to which too little attention is paid. In the body, it is mainly found in the bones, but also in the hair, nails, tendons and ligaments. In smaller quantities in soft tissue.

    If there is a tendency for hair loss, a lack of silicon stores can lead to more intense hair loss. Silicon is especially found in oats or brown millet, and also in nettles, but only in small amounts in other foods, so today’s common diet provides little silicon.

    Several studies have already indicated that silicon has a positive effect on hair health. For example, German scientists from the University Clinic in Hamburg-Eppendorf in 2007. published the results of research that daily intake of silicon significantly increased hair volume.

    The study participants were healthy women who complained of particularly thin hair. Since silicon is said to have a strong effect on hair structure, subjects should take 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of silicone gel daily for 6 months.

    After this time, it was found that not only did the hair volume increase, but that the health of the hair also benefited from the intake of silicon, which was reflected in the new shine and vitality of the hair.

    Three years later, researchers from the Karlsruhe city hospital reported similar results. Here, too, it has been proven that silicon (when taken 350 mg three times a day for 6 months) with previously reduced hair quality (brittle and dry hair) leads to clearly healthier, more beautiful and also thicker hair.

    The 2016 study presented two further studies that also found a significant improvement in hair and nail quality after taking silicon (10 mg daily for 9 months), which was not the case in the respective placebo groups. .

    Silicon can therefore be included in therapy in case of existing hair loss. The trace element can be used not only internally, but also externally.

    Internally, it is ideal without acids, and thus the basic colloidal silicone gel from GeoSilica.

    On the outside, hair growth concentrates containing silicon are applied to the scalp, which mineralize the skin, activate it and at the same time – if there is irritation – soothe it.

    Classical medicine and hair loss

    Conventional medicine also tries to discover the cause of hair loss, but in some cases several experts must be consulted: a dermatologist, an endocrinologist and sometimes a gynecologist.

    Finasteride is commonly used, especially in the case of genetically induced hair loss. It inhibits 5-alpha reductase, which would otherwise convert testosterone to DHT, thus reducing DHT levels.

    Side effects include decreased libido, erectile dysfunction to impotence and depression, which do not even disappear in any case after stopping the drug. Infertility, dry eyes and visual disturbances can also occur as side effects of taking finasteride.

    In addition, finasteride must be taken permanently, if you stop using the product, the hair will fall out again within a few weeks.

    Finasteride is not approved for women. Therefore, in case of androgenic hair loss, they are advised to use certain hormonal preparations or to use minoxidil, a solution that is applied to the scalp and which should show results after 6 months at the latest. Men can also massage them into the scalp twice a day in case of hair loss, but not if the scalp is reddened or otherwise irritated.

    However, it is these symptoms that are possible side effects of Minoxidil. It can dry out the skin, causing itching, redness and irritation, and also leads to rashes.

    Although a 2 percent solution of minoxidil is usually recommended for women, men take a five percent solution. Women should not take the latter, as they can lead to unwanted hair growth on other parts of the body (chest, legs, chin).

    The best natural remedies for prostate cancer

    Lifestyle, adequate diet and herbs prevent the development of prostate cancer. Include foods rich in antioxidants and nutrients in your diet to prevent them from forming cancer .

    The diet should be rich in vegetables, fruits, legumes, omega 3 plant sources such as flaxseed and oil, and whole grains.

    Vitamins that have antitumor activity

    Vitamin C

    Vitamin C has a regulatory effect on the immune system and is mostly found in fruits and vegetables.

    Vitamin E is an antioxidant and the main vitamin responsible for the regulation of sex hormones. It is found in oils of wheat germ, sunflower, sesame, walnut, flaxseed, peanut …

    Vitamin D has an immunomodulatory effect, mostly found in sunflower seeds and blue fish. The body produces it when we sunbathe.

    Selenium has an antioxidant effect, it is mostly found in dried fruits, Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, psyllium and vegetables in general.

    Maitake – strengthens immunity in the fight against cancer

    Maitake (Grifola frondosa), its component called “D-fraction” enhances the activity of interferon-alpha, a protein that is naturally produced by the immune system. This makes it effective for immunotherapy in prostate cancer.

    The doses you can take vary greatly depending on whether you are taking a powder, a dry extract or a dry mycelium extract.

    If vitamin C is taken 15 minutes before consuming mushrooms, its absorption and action are doubled.

    Use the anti-inflammatory power of licorice

    The root of this plant (Glycyrrhiza glabra) has an anti-inflammatory effect, similar to cortisone and stimulates immunity.

    Due to the glycyrrhetinic acid and glycyrrhizin it contains, it has the mineral corticoid (hormones whose main mission is to increase minerals in the extracellular fluid) and estrogenic activity in large doses. Corticoid also lowers testosterone levels.

    The recommended daily dose is between 200-800 mg of glycyrrhizin, although in some cases it may be higher.

    It is contraindicated for use in arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, autoimmune diseases, cirrhosis, potassium deficiency and heart disease, except under medical supervision.

    Consumption of licorice can reduce iron absorption and interact with digoxin (cardiotonic) and warfarin (anticoagulant). If consumed for a long time, it can cause edema (fluid retention), heart disorders, potassium deficiency and high blood pressure, which stop when you stop or reduce your intake.

    Black cohosh, a plant that has a positive effect on the prostate

    Black cohosh (Cimifuga racemosa or Actaea racemosa) is traditionally used to suppress the negative symptoms of menopause. Until a few years ago, it was considered to stimulate estrogen production, which is why it is contraindicated in breast cancer.

    It is known to contain substances – triterpenic glucosides, saponins and flavonoids that beneficially regulate estrogens and androgens.

    The above-mentioned components also have an antiproliferative effect on tumor cells and induce cell apoptosis or programmed cell death, both in breast cancer cells and from the activation of proteins – called caspases – that are involved in apoptosis.

    The usual doses range between 20-500 mg of dry extract per day.

    Negative effects when consuming black cohosh: headache, gastrointestinal discomfort or mild dizziness due to vasodilatory action. People with liver disease should avoid it.

    Drug interactions are unknown. In case of surgery, consumption must be suspended for a week before due to the vasodilatory effect.

    Think about your health

    Stress, worries and quality of life affect health. In order to cure any serious health disorder, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

    Take care of intestinal hygiene

    For good health, it is necessary to have a regular chair, it is recommended every day. The stool should be in normal quantity, consistency and color.

    Nettle protects against prostate cancer

    Nettle Urtica dioica acts on preferred prostate tissue, both benign hyperplasia (increased organ or tissue size) as in cancer.

    Mainly the root is used, but also the leaves and the whole plant. Its positive effect on prostate cancer is associated with the inhibitory effect of the enzymes adenosine deaminase and 5-alpha reductase in prostate tissue.

    It is recommended to start with doses lower than optimal (500 mg / day of dry extract divided into 2 doses), in order to ensure that it is well tolerated and that there are no allergic reactions.

    It must be of high quality, because nettle tends to grow in areas rich in organic waste, so it accumulates nitrates in its tissues, which can be harmful (they can interfere with oxygen transport).

    Consumption of nettle leaves is contraindicated in cases of renal or heart failure without medical supervision due to its diuretic effect. The root can cause stomach discomfort, and the leaves can cause skin allergies.

    Exercise is necessary

    Maintaining regular physical activity helps you to be more relaxed, oxygenate tissues, have a better mood, sleep and muscle tone, and keep your body healthy. (by removing toxins through sweat and stimulating liver function).

    Moderate physical activity is recommended for cancer patients who are being treated with chemotherapy.

    Tofu: Isoflavones are very effective in patients with prostate cancer

    Genistein and daidzeins are two substances in soy (Glycine poppy) that act in hormonal metabolism.

    It has been suggested that they may have an inhibitory effect on tumor growth, an antiangiogenic, antioxidant and a promoter of cell differentiation, in addition to an effect on key enzymes of tumor development.

    They work against hormone-dependent and independent cells, although genistein seems to act stronger in them.

    The daily dose is about 20-80 mg, and higher doses can be used for prostate cancer, depending on the case. There are about 48 mg of isoflavones in 100 g of fried tofu.

    In the form of supplements and in large doses, they can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain. They should be avoided when taking MAOI drugs (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) and anticoagulants.

    Reishi controls hormones

    Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) has a positive effect on prostate tissue. The positive effect is due to the strong inhibitory effect on testosterone by reducing the levels of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase.

    It also has anti-inflammatory, cortisone-like, anti-angiogenic (inhibits or reduces the formation of blood vessels), immunoregulatory and antiproliferative properties.

    reishi mushroom

    Avoid toxic agents

    Tobacco, alcohol and other toxins that burden the body must be completely excluded from our lives, both in the prevention and treatment of any disease, especially in cancer patients.

    Quality sleep

    Quality sleep is necessary for maintaining the immune system in good condition and regeneration of the whole organism.

    If your sleep is disturbed, you can use medicinal plants such as valerian or linden. Another technique is a warm bath before bed.

    LIFESTYLE, NUTRITION AND HERBAL PLANTS IN INTEGRATED PROTECTION OF PROSTATE CANCER

    Prostate cancer is the most common malignant tumor in men in industrialized countries. Studies done during autopsies show that most people over the age of 85 have prostate cancer, even if it is microscopic in size.

    In many cases, the cancer is not detected because the immune system is able to keep the tumor cells under control. Studies also show that the risk of cancer increases with age, although in old age there is a tendency for less aggressive behavior.

    Diet and lifestyle are essential in the prevention of prostate cancer. There are also medicinal plants that can especially help in the recovery of the organism.

    HORMONE INFLUENCE

    Androgens (male hormones) are known to be crucial for the development of prostate tumors and possible later metastases in other parts of the body. The role of estrogen (female hormones) has not been fully studied.

    Conventional treatment is usually aimed at local removal of the tumor if it is not widespread, and which is supplemented, if necessary, with radiotherapy, hormone therapy with estrogen or chemotherapy.

    COMPLEMENTARY NATURAL TREATMENT

    In very old men or those with very poor health, surgery and chemotherapy are usually avoided, and only hormone therapy and radiation therapy can achieve good tumor control.

    Many herbs and natural remedies have immunostimulatory, immunoregulatory, anti-tumor and anti-inflammatory effects – useful in the prevention, control and treatment of cancer.

    How to quickly increase testosterone levels

    Many men suffer from low testosterone levels and its psychophysical consequences. Male phytoandrogens can help men increase testosterone levels. How to increase testosterone levels?

    Low testosterone levels – symptoms of testosterone deficiency.

    Our society still does not accept the diagnosis of male menopause. Men affected by so-called menopause will experience a drop in testosterone levels and related symptoms, including the following: Irritability, dissatisfaction and anxiety.

    Lack of energy and fatigue, sleep disorders.

    Decreased libido

    Less frequent morning erections

    Increasing muscle strength

    Lower sports performance and lower performance in everyday work

    Hot waves, sweating

    Testicles that are getting smaller

    Minor hair growth on the chin and chest

    Increased belly fat

    Symptoms of metabolic syndrome (diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure)

    Decreased bone density

    Joint pain (which has nothing to do with osteoarthritis or arthritis, but is hormonal)

    Symptoms of testosterone deficiency already show what tasks testosterone – the so-called male hormone – usually has in healthy men:

    It gives you strength and assertiveness, ensures a healthy libido and potency, increases bone density and body hair growth. Women also have testosterone, but much less than men.

    Menopause in men: does it exist or does it not exist?

    Why is male menopause not taken seriously? Simply because most medical scientists still believe that male menopause does not exist. There is too much focus on comparison with menopausal women. A woman loses fertility during menopause, a man does not have to. Thus, male menopause does not exist in this way.

    Menopause is not defined in terms of fertility. Menopause is just a time hormonal changes and decreases in hormonal performance.

    In male menopause, the symptoms are not yet recognized. Certain psychological problems are mainly attributed to the midlife crisis. Physical symptoms are seen as completely normal signs of old age that appear sooner or later and which – as is often the case from the perspective of conventional medicine – need to be reconciled. Rarely does a doctor think about testosterone deficiency.

    The problem is occasionally raised in the media. For example, “Every fifth person has too little testosterone in the blood” not only in old age, younger people also have a lack of testosterone.

    Decreased testosterone levels: causes:

    Younger, refers to men between 30 and 40 years of age. Harald Jorn Schneider , an endocrinologist at the University Hospital in Munich, explains that low testosterone levels may already exist at this age if certain factors match.

    This includes:

    Overweight with a lot of belly fat (apple type), because it is a female hormone estrogen especially creates in the fatty tissue of the stomach. The following is true: the richer the stomach, the lower the level of testosterone. I: Anyone who is overweight and wants to increase testosterone levels must lose weight.

    Stress, because the stress hormone cortisol reduces testosterone levels.

    Lack of exercise because exercise raises testosterone levels.

    One of the most important causes of falling testosterone levels is also the hormonal effect of so-called endocrine disorders. These are chemicals from the environment that have a similar effect on the body as hormones and therefore can irritate the balance of hormones. Hormone disorders caused by endocrine disorders

    Endocrine disorders are caused, for example:

    Alive

    Plasticizers such as bisphenol A, found in plastics made of polycarbonate, epoxy resins, polyester, PVC, etc., as well as in bills.

    Organophosphates (agricultural pesticides and allotments)

    Phthalates in pharmaceutical products (eg in those that are resistant to stomach acid, ie release their active ingredients only in the intestines), plastics and personal care products

    Flame retardants known as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), e.g. B. in upholstered furniture

    Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) derived from the exhaust gases of burned wood and oil or coal

    Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), once used as coolants and lubricants for transformers or other electronic equipment (PCBs are banned, but can survive in the environment for decades).

    The consequences of this constant hormonal load on the outside show in the form of health problems.

    Therapy for men with hormonal imbalance – side effects:

    Therapy with synthetic hormones is used only in cases of major health problems. For example, it can damage the liver and kidneys, lead to cardiovascular problems, increase cholesterol levels, enlarge sebum glands, irritate the thyroid gland, increase the risk of depression or prostate problems, including prostate cancer.

    Measure testosterone levels.

    Can age-related testosterone deficiency be called menopause or not?

    To rule out testosterone deficiency, do a blood test with your family doctor or urologist or andrologist.

    Testosterone home test

    testosterone home test

    There are home tests that can be ordered online. The saliva sample is sent to the laboratory, which reports the result within a few days. You can choose which hormones you want to test.

    Often it is not only the amount of each hormone that is important, but also the relationship of different hormones to each other (testosterone, estradiol and DHEA (DHEA is the precursor of both female and male sex hormones)). There are also tests that examine all sex hormones that are relevant to men.

    A blood test usually automatically checks for several hormones at once.

    The advantage of the saliva test: only free and efficient hormones are present in the saliva.

    Increase testosterone levels – naturopathic measures

    If you do find low testosterone levels, it is not necessary to use synthetic hormones. You can help yourself:

    with phytoandrogens

    with special natural dietary supplements and certain substances

    with certain foods and – if there is no other way –

    with bioidentical hormonal preparations.

    1. Increase testosterone levels with phytoandrogens

    Phytoandrogens are plants that contain plant androgens (“male hormones”) that stimulate the production of androgens in the body or inhibit androgen breakdown. Phytoandrogens increase the level of free testosterone, and also ensure a healthy balance of testosterone and estrogen.

    Herbalist Stephen Harrod Buchner recommends it in his book The Natural Testosterone Plan , the following program to increase testosterone levels (eg over three months or in consultation with a doctor / alternative doctor):

    Pine pollen tincture (mostly available in stores called pine pollen tincture): almost half a teaspoon three times a day

    Nettle root: 1200 mg daily

    Tribulus terrestris: 500 mg three times daily

    Panak ginseng: ¼ teaspoons daily

    Tienchi ginseng: 1/3 teaspoon three times a day

    Eleutherococcus tincture: 1 teaspoon twice a day

    These herbs have the following effects on the body:

    Pine pollen is especially rich in plant hormones similar to testosterone. Pine seeds (pine nuts) also contain little plant-based testosterone, but not as much as pollen. White and black pine pollen is suitable if someone wants to collect pollen himself in early spring.

    Pollen is not easily digestible and the bioavailability of active ingredients is therefore not so high. Tinctures are made to increase bioavailability.

    Pine pollen does not only affect the hormonal balance. They also increase the level of antioxidants in the body, stimulate liver regeneration and lower cholesterol levels.

    The plant hormones found in pine pollen include not only plant testosterone and DHEA, but also brassinosteroids. They ensure that the plant grows advanced. Their structure is very similar to the structure of human steroids. Glutathione transferases are also found in boron pollen. Glutathione transferases are involved in the production of testosterone and progesterone, thus promoting testosterone synthesis.

    The testosterone content in pine is so high that female fish living near paper mills that process pine wood can turn into male fish.

    Nettle root is known for its positive effects on the prostate. Therefore, it is often used for benign prostate enlargement. The actual mechanism of action has not yet been fully investigated: Nettle root prevents the binding of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) to SHBG (transport protein). As a result, the proportion of free and effective testosterone becomes higher. Testosterone levels rise.

    DHT is actually active testosterone. Testosterone is just a precursor to a hormone that can be converted to DHT or estrogen.

    Nettle root can block just this last mentioned transformation. It inhibits so-called aromatase, an enzyme that would normally lead to the conversion of testosterone to estrogen, and thus also maintains testosterone levels at a higher level.

    Sometimes you need to lower your DHT levels to improve your BPH. And since nettle root can help with BPH, it was believed that it actually reduced testosterone levels.

    BPH is more likely to be related to the regulation of the testosterone / estrogen ratio. In men, testosterone levels decrease with age. Estrogen levels usually remain constant. Sooner or later, an imbalance occurs here, which is why a natural increase in testosterone levels is useful for restoring hormonal balance. And this is where nettle root can help.

    Tribulus terrestris is also known as a terrestrial star and originates from tropical and subtropical areas. The fruits of the plant are used.

    In Ayurveda, in TCM, and also in Western naturopathy, Tribulus is known as a remedy for kidney health, because it prevents or reduces kidney stones and can protect and take care of the mucous membrane of the urinary tract. Ayurveda is also a plant that promotes masculinity, as well as male vitality and fertility. Tribulus is thought to increase sperm volume and sperm motility.

    A clinical study showed that taking 500 mg of Tribulus (dry extract) three times a day for 60 days significantly increased sperm production in patients with idiopathic OAT syndrome (they had too little sperm for no apparent reason). In 80% of men, libido and the quality of erection, orgasm and ejaculation improved at the same time.

    In impotent men, Panak ginseng works. Known as an energy tonic that gives vitality and mental clarity and improves fertility. Many typical areas of ginseng application are also present in the case of testosterone deficiency, such as concentration and sleep disorders, fatigue, lack of energy, decreased libido, weakness, etc.

    In a clinical study, ginseng was able to increase testosterone levels and sperm count in patients, as well as improve sperm mobility. In two Russian studies, half of the respondents recovered from impotence, while the other half had a visible improvement.

    When buying Panak ginseng, make sure it is Asian ginseng, not American. A tincture is also recommended – ideally combined with Tienchi ginseng tincture. Both tinctures should be at least 1: 5 tincture, which means that for the tincture should be prepared 1 part herbs with 5 parts liquid.

    Tienchi Ginseng is another type of ginseng, but its effects are similar to Panax Ginseng. Gensen Tienchi also improves sperm motility. It stimulates the release of nitric oxide, a substance that stimulates blood flow and is necessary for a satisfactory erection.

    The circulatory-enhancing effect is important for the entire cardiovascular system, which is why clinical studies with people suffering from coronary heart disease have shown a significant improvement in the typical symptoms of angina pectoris.

    It is true that ginseng contains the ginsenoside Rg1, which is known as a powerful phytoestrogen. Only this isolated substance acts as estrogen, not a food supplement or tincture made from whole ginseng root.

    Eleutherococcus is also called Siberian ginseng. Root or just root bark is used. Eleutherococcus contains at least two androgenic substances (Eleutheroside-B1 and Eleutheroside-E), so it is not surprising that studies have shown that the plant managed to prevent prostate atrophy (shrinkage) and that testosterone levels in castrated animals remain at a completely normal level despite the lack of testicles.

    Eleutherococcus is also considered a liver protection plant and an adaptogen. Adaptogens are herbs that can make you more resistant to stress. They allow you to concentrate better and become much more mentally efficient.

    In addition to eleutherococcus, Rhodiola rosea is also an extremely effective adaptogen. Rhodiola rosea – a stress killer and herbal antidepressant.

    When buying Eleutherococcus tincture, according to Buchner, you should take into account that it is a tincture that is made according to a Russian recipe, ie. At least 1: 1 tincture or, even better, tincture 2: 1.

    Buchner protocol and science

    The above-mentioned effects are transferred from the experiences of traditional naturopathy and therefore do not necessarily meet scientific standards. Some effects have been tested in studies in countries of origin (China, India, etc.), but the studies have never been translated into English.

    Current studies are also often conducted with young people and men who play sports with healthy testosterone levels. Because herbs do not raise hormone levels to unlimited levels at any time and in any person. Instead, they help the body achieve individually healthy and appropriate values when the level is too low.

    You should always discuss the use of the Buchner protocol with your phytotherapist or alternative physician.

    2. Increase testosterone levels with certain nutritional supplements

    In order to meet all the requirements for a successful increase in testosterone levels, it is also important to be well supplied with all vital substances, especially those that are essential for testosterone formation.

    These include zinc, magnesium, vitamin D and B vitamins. These supplements do not necessarily increase testosterone levels, but generally have a very positive effect on men’s health (eg prostate, erection, sperm quality, libido.)

    Zinc: Testosterone production depends on an enzyme that contains zinc. Without zinc, this enzyme cannot work and testosterone levels fall. If zinc deficiency is eliminated, testosterone levels rise again.

    Maca: Although the powder made from the South American root cannot raise the level of testosterone, it still has positive effects on the male organism. Maca increases sperm production and can counteract pathological prostate enlargement. Maca also increases mental performance and is good for bones.

    L-arginine: This amino acid has a positive effect on sperm quality and is an important source of nitric oxide. L-arginine could not increase testosterone levels even with a daily intake of 3 g. L-arginine plus pine bark extract for erectile dysfunction and L-arginine for muscle building and potency

    Olive leaf extract: The substance oleuropein is found in olive leaves, and also in smaller quantities in olive oil. It can raise the level of LH, and thus the level of testosterone, at the same time reducing the level of stress hormones. No specific dose is known here, so we recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use. Effects of olive leaf extract: Incredible healing power of olive leaf extract. Magnesium: Magnesium apparently increases testosterone levels, according to a 2011 study. Years.

    Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is said to increase testosterone levels when taken to 3,000 IU per day because the vitamin is involved in its regulation by aromatase inhibition.

    B vitamins: Most B vitamins are involved in testosterone production at some point, so – like any health problem – they play an important role here.

    Therefore, check the supply of the mentioned vital substances and nutrients. If there is a deficiency, take appropriate food supplements, e.g.

    25-30 mg zinc gluconate

    300 – 400 mg of magnesium

    complex of high doses of vitamin B.

    The combination of astaxanthin palmetto saw extract could also increase testosterone levels in the study.

    3. Increase testosterone levels with certain foods

    Even diet can affect testosterone levels. First of all, about the abundance of vital substances and antioxidants, because then it provides all the building blocks necessary for the production of testosterone, supplies the relevant organs with all the necessary nutrients and at the same time protects the body from oxidative stress.

    A diet that can increase testosterone levels provides substances similar to testosterone, and also has a positive effect on the kidneys and adrenal glands.

    In addition to the testes, the adrenal glands are also responsible for producing testosterone. The kidneys depend on testosterone, so it is said that a person’s kidneys can be healthy as long as his hormonal status is balanced.

    It is known that men with kidney disease usually have high levels of estrogen and, at the same time, low levels of testosterone. Kidney disease can also lead to impotence.

    Foods that have a positive effect on testosterone levels and can increase them are the following:

    Celery contains significant amounts of substances similar to testosterone, and it is also known to keep the kidneys and adrenal glands healthy. Celery lowers blood pressure, which is especially good for the kidneys. Eat 3 to 4 stalks of celery a day or drink juice (mixed with other freshly squeezed juices such as cucumber, spinach and apple and kale)

    Corn, and especially corn juice, is considered a tonic for raising testosterone levels. Corn increases LH secretion, and LH is known to raise testosterone levels. Just juice or mix 60-120 g of fresh young corn and mix it with freshly squeezed celery juice.

    Cucumbers are known for their properties adapted to the kidneys. They provide a lot of organic water and are great for mixing in the above juice to dilute.

    Kale is one of the healthiest foods of all and should be included in therapy to naturally increase testosterone levels. The kale and other cabbage families contain substances that prevent the production of too much estrogen. Cabbage plants also provide a lot of beta-carotene, vitamin C, chlorophyll, magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, folic acid and many carcinogenic substances.

    Spinach is rich in vital substances, as is kale, and due to its nitrate content, it improves the supply of oxygen to cells, which has a positive effect on increasing muscle mass.

    Oats should be an important part of every diet and it is best to eat them every day. Oats are said to reduce the level of SHBG and thus increase the amount of free testosterone.

    Oats have a relaxing effect on the nerves, which is also very useful for hormonal balance. Because the less stress the nerves are, the less stress hormones are released that would otherwise lower testosterone levels.

    Garlic is a traditional means of increasing testosterone levels. Especially in animal studies, garlic has shown a strong effect on testosterone levels. In the mentioned studies, that was 0.8 percent of the daily calorie intake. So, for example, if you consumed 2,500 kcal, you would need 20 kcal in the form of garlic – that’s about 15 g of garlic or 5 cloves from 3 years each.

    Pine nuts have long been considered an aphrodisiac and a means of increasing libido and potency. Greek doctor Galen (129-216) recommended consuming a mixture of pine nuts, almonds and honey for three nights in a row for the vitality of the male organism.

    4. Increase testosterone levels with bioidentical hormonal preparations

    Before taking testosterone preparations directly, it is much more preferable to take testosterone precursors or to apply them in the form of a cream / gel. Then the body can produce the required amount of testosterone on its own without the risk of prolonged overdose. This is of course also possible with bioidentical hormones.

    Testosterone precursors are DHEA (25-50 mg daily) and progesterone or pregnenolone (15-100 mg daily) – depending on test results and age.

    Progesterone is especially considered a hormone that is often too small in men. If it disappears, the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases increases at the same time.

    Consumption of bioidentical hormonal preparations should always be discussed with a knowledgeable therapist.

    You can only use testosterone gel if a really huge testosterone deficiency is detected in a saliva or blood test.

    Increase testosterone levels: Avoid testosterone enemies

    You should avoid alcohol and products or drinks that contain hops, such as beer.

    Hops belong to a very strong phytoestrogen, which was known in ancient times, since the girls who regularly worked in the hop fields became sexually mature very early. If men consume this plant estrogen, testosterone levels drop. The ability of the testes to produce testosterone is also reduced in the presence of hops.

    You should avoid larger amounts of licorice tea, because licorice can increase cortisol levels and in turn decrease testosterone levels.

    Four causes of hormonal imbalance

    Hormonal imbalance is the cause of many health problems. Sleep problems and anxiety can be symptoms of hormonal imbalance, but also unexplained weight gain, chronic fatigue, skin problems or even cancer.

    Hormonal disorders: small deviations with large consequences

    Even the smallest disturbances in the finely tuned hormonal system can be the cause of a wide range of symptoms and diseases. A hormonal disorder can cause a headache, allergies , depression.

    The enemies of our hormonal balance can easily cause these problems and many others.

    Disorders menstrual cycle , hair loss, loss of libido or sudden skin blemishes are also among the consequences of unbalanced hormonal balance.

    In many cases, hormonal disorders are also a trigger for far more serious diseases.

    Finally, who knows that diseases like Alzheimer’s, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and many types of cancer can also be linked to hormonal imbalance.

    Four enemy hormones

    To avoid hormonal imbalance it is necessary to know:

    The enemy of hormones no. 1: Vitamin D deficiency.

    Vitamin D

    Vitamin D is a well-known so-called sun vitamin, but it is actually a neuroregulatory hormone. It regulates important processes in the nervous system. Vitamin D deficiency means that other hormones in the body can no longer send their signals unhindered. When vitamin D levels are low, people are prone to mood swings, depression and irritability. Such mood swings are pronounced especially in the winter months and in all areas where there are few sunny days.

    Enemy Hormone # 2: Stimulants and Stress

    In the case of stress or after using stimulants (caffeine, nicotine, etc.), the adrenal glands, responsible for the formation of stress hormones, release a large amount of stress hormones.

    Short-term use of stimulants is not a problem for the body. When stress becomes chronic, when there is a lack of sleep and when abundant amounts of coffee and cigarettes are ingested every day, the adrenal glands become overloaded and cells in the body are damaged.

    As a result of the process of cell damage, less and less hormones are produced in the body. The mildest symptom is fatigue, followed by emotional imbalance. For the adrenal gland to function normally you need to eat healthy to avoid stress and stimulants such as coffee and cigarettes.

    In order for the adrenal gland to function normally, it is necessary to take sufficient amounts of B complex vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, probiotics and enzymes, either through food or supplementation. Normal functioning also affects the overall balance of hormones in the body.

    The enemy of hormones no. 3: environmental pollutants, radiation exposure and drugs

    Pollutants from the environment, but also ubiquitous exposure to radiation (mobile phone, radiological examinations), as well as drugs (including contraceptive pills) can have a negative effect on hormonal balance. The thyroid gland may be particularly unbalanced by such stress.

    Poor thyroid function weakens the overall metabolism and irritates the functions of all other endocrine glands.

    Drugs that adversely affect the body and endocrine glands should be discontinued or reduced to the smallest possible extent.

    Many chronic diseases can be alleviated or even cured by holistic or naturopathic measures, so they should be applied first before resorting to medication.

    Remove all contaminants (various toxins, heavy metals, etc.)

    The enemy of hormones no. 4: substances with hormonal action

    Our environment, and especially everyday objects, as well as food and their packaging, are full of hormonally active substances that can affect the hormonal balance.

    These substances can delay or accelerate the breakdown of hormones, inhibit or activate hormone production or change the effect of the body’s own hormones.

    Endocrine disorders occur due to various substances, for example:

    Pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)

    Pesticides

    Heavy metals like lead, cadmium and mercury

    Plasticizers

    Drugs

    Some UV filters in sunscreen cosmetics

    Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical found in plastics. It mimics the sex hormone estrogen in our body, which is associated with cancer, obesity and heart disease, among other things. To avoid BPA, it is necessary to avoid the following products: Plastic marked with “PC” (polycarbonate) or recycling code “Number 7” (triangle composed of three arrows with a number in the middle)

    Triclosan, an antibacterial substance found in some toothpastes, mouthwashes, deodorants, etc.

    Canned food

    Drinks from plastic bottles (it is better to use glass bottles)

    How do endocrine disorders enter the body?

    Endocrine disorders can find their way into the body through the digestive tract, lungs or skin.

    These pollutants are much more harmful for children than for adults. Therefore, the law stipulates that in the production of children’s toys, pacifiers and baby bottles, strict void is taken into account when choosing the materials from which they are made.

    But babies and children also come into contact with all other sources of poison, especially because they like to explore everything and put it in their mouths.

    These can be vinyl wallpapers that contain PVC, carpets, synthetic leather furniture, gloves, kitchen and bathroom items, cables and much more.

    Vapors of PVC-containing floor coverings enter the air, collect in house dust and are absorbed through the respiratory tract – both old and young.

    We absorb endocrine disruptors through the skin, namely in the form of cosmetic products such as shampoos or body lotions. They often contain hormonally active preservatives such as B. methyl paraben.

    Hormonal effects of endocrine disorders

    Especially in children, the hormonal effects of these substances can be very harmful. And because of that, children’s health can be seriously damaged physically and mentally.

    In boys and men, hormonal imbalance is associated with genital malformations, testicular cancer and reduced sperm count and quality.

    An altered hormonal situation could be the cause of early adolescence in girls and the reason for the increased risk of breast cancer in women.

    It is generally assumed that hormone-regulated organs such as the breast and prostate develop more often tumors if there is an endocrine disorder.

    Hormonally active substances are possible causes of allergies, diabetes, obesity, brain development disorders, behavioral disorders and cardiovascular diseases.

    The effect of cocktails occurs when you come in contact with several toxins at the same time, which is common nowadays. The combined effect of toxins can be much more toxic than the effects of individual substances.

    The effect of the cocktail can already occur if you first use shower gel, apply skin cream with sunscreen, and then style your hair with hair gel. people often use plastic containers, consume fruits and vegetables from conventional cultivation, get a BPA bill or an ATM bill.

    Substances that affect the hormone are quickly collected and dangerous amounts enter the body.

    To protect our health, daily exposure to hormonal pollutants should be drastically reduced.

    How can hormonal disorders be avoided?

    It is not so difficult to avoid or at least reduce the intake of hormonally active substances in order to prevent hormonal disorders.

    Organic food is healthier and contains less harmful toxins. Through a varied healthy diet, you take in optimal amounts of vitamins, minerals and other useful substances that strengthen the body and bring hormones into balance.

    Buy only fruits and vegetables that are naturally fragrant and do not have a sticky surface. Wash food thoroughly before preparing it.

    Eat finished products as infrequently as possible and change product brands more often (depending on the manufacturer, the same products may contain different amounts of endocrine substances in the packaging that disrupt hormones and therefore lead to different levels of hormonal disorders).

    Regularly clean floors and carpets with organic detergents, often wiping them with dust and ventilating them to reduce chemicals in house dust.

    New textiles, such as bedding, clothes and towels, as well as toys, should be washed before first use.

    Buy high-quality toys that in most cases guarantee the least possible release of harmful substances.

    Parents can protect their children by making sure that children put in their mouths only things that are made and intended for them for their age.

    Believe your nose! Products with a strong smell often contain waste substances that are dangerous to health and can cause hormonal disorders.

    Children’s products and plastic polycarbonate food packaging should be avoided. Glass jars and food bottles are a good alternative.

    In case of doubt, consumers have the right to directly ask the manufacturer if hazardous chemicals have been used in the product. The European Chemicals Regulation REACH provides a relevant legal and informational basis for this.

    Can oilseeds regulate the endocrine system?

    So-called hormone diets appear in the media and serve to regulate hormones. Hormone balance is positively affected by a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle.

    What is folic acid for?

    Folic acid – which is also well known as vitamin B9, or folate, or methylfolate – is a water-soluble vitamin. As the body cannot store this vitamin for a long time, a daily supplement is necessary. It is used for the production of blood cells, wound healing, helping to build muscle.

    Due to its functions, folic acid is necessary for its formation DNA and RNA and to ensure that cells replicate normally. At the beginning of pregnancy, it is of fundamental importance for the development of the embryo, because it is a time of great cell replication.

    The vitamin also helps in the production of basic chemicals for the brain and nervous system. Like all vitamins, folic acid is essential for the proper functioning of the metabolism. Its deficiency or excess can cause health problems.

    Folic acid and its benefits during pregnancy

    Adequate levels of folic acid during conception and during the first three months of pregnancy greatly reduce the risk of serious birth defects in babies. The use of folic acid is very important for you and the development of your baby during pregnancy.

    Even in a healthy, natural pregnancy or through assisted fertilization, the intake of folic acid is warmly recommended, because it reduces the risk of malformations of the baby’s central nervous system. Supplementation prevents the appearance of problems in the fetal neural tube, which is formed in the first months of pregnancy, and includes a primitive structure that creates the brain and spinal cord.

    Folic acid is one of the most important nutrients for a baby

    Folic acid is responsible for reducing the risk of defects in the brain and spine, which is called nerve tube deficiency. The neural tube becomes the baby’s brain and spinal cord in the first month of pregnancy, and this period is the most dangerous for creating disability.

    Therefore, it is recommended that you increase your folic acid intake before conception. In addition, folic acid is also responsible for helping placenta formation and DNA development, as well as reducing the risk of preeclampsia during pregnancy.

    In general, a dose of 600 mcg per day is recommended for pregnant women, and the dose can be suspended after the first 3 months of pregnancy, because folic acid acts for up to a year. All recommendations, however, must be confirmed by your prenatalist.

    The WHO – World Health Organization – also recommends a preventive supplement for pregnant women who have started prenatal care, regardless of gestational age.

    Where we find folic acid

    One of the most common sources of folic acid are all plants with green leaves, with special emphasis on spinach, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce and primrose. Grains, beans, mushrooms, chicken liver, eggs, brewer’s yeast and wheat germ also have good amounts of folic acid.

    Fruits such as avocados, mangoes, oranges, tomatoes, melons and bananas should also be on the menu for those who want to balance the level of folic acid in the body.

    Foods rich in folate are quite varied and their menu will not become monotonous. It is always good to remember that part of the folic acid present can be lost during cooking and food preparation.

    Another source of pvpg vitamins are supplements, drugs and fortified products. Supplements are most suitable if there is a lack of folic acid in the body.

    Risks of overuse

    Folate is a water-soluble vitamin and this facilitates its regulation in the body: all excess will be naturally eliminated through urine. Therefore, overdose does not happen with food, but it can happen if you use folic acid as a dietary supplement.

    Intake of an overdose of folic acid can result in digestive problems, abdominal pain, nausea and skin reactions. Vitamin B12 deficiency and consequent anemia can also occur. Amounts above 5000 micrograms per day are considered dangerous.

    Therefore, it is worth paying attention to excessive use and taking into account the doses.

    Women of childbearing potential need 400 mcg of folic acid daily.

    Severe birth defects of the baby’s brain or spine appear very early in pregnancy (3 to 4 weeks after conception), before most women realize that they are pregnant.

    If you are taking folic acid, consuming a dose higher than 400 mcg per day is not necessarily better to prevent nerve tube damage, unless your doctor recommends taking a larger amount for other conditions.

    When planning to become pregnant, women who have already had a pregnancy with neural tube defects should consult their doctor. The CDC recommends that these women consume 4,000 mcg of folic acid daily for one month before becoming pregnant and during the first three months of pregnancy.

    Other benefits for the body

    In the human body, vitamin B9 performs some specific functions and mainly acts to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, folic acid prevents heart disease and stroke.

    Numerous factors, including B vitamins, including folate, are needed to strengthen the immune system. Vitamin B9 folic acid also reduces possible hearing loss in the elderly; treats poor kidney function;

    This vitamin also regulates the production and use of homocysteine, a substance similar to an amino acid that can damage blood vessel tissue at high levels, making them more susceptible to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques (narrowed due to fat accumulation).

    In addition, folic acid can help prevent certain cancers, including lung, cervix , colon and rectum. Applying sufficient doses of this vitamin can also prevent thousands of deaths from heart disease.

    Continuing with the list of benefits, folic acid plays an important role in the health of the skin, nails and hair. This vitamin helps in growth and fights acne and dermatitis, leaving the skin a healthy glow and controlled oil.

    In addition to being necessary for the development of the nervous system of the fetus, folate is necessary for the proper functioning of the brain and plays an important role in cognitive abilities and mental and emotional health. It acts as a cofactor in the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that guarantees good mood.

    Medical monitoring during pregnancy is of the utmost importance to avoid complications. Any medicine, substance or vitamin should be prescribed and prescribed by a doctor.

    Folic acid

    How can you get enough folic acid

    In addition to eating foods with folate as part of a varied diet, women can also get folic acid in the following ways:

    Take a vitamin that contains folic acid.

    Most vitamins sold in the United States contain the recommended daily amount of folic acid (400 mcg) that women need.

    Vitamins can be purchased at most local drugstores, supermarkets. Check the package label to make sure it contains 100% of the daily nutritional requirement for folic acid, which is 400 mcg.

    Eat fortified foods.

    Folic acid can be found in breakfast cereals and corn porridge.

    Be sure to read the Nutrition Facts label and look for products that say “100%” next to the word “folate.”

    Combined use of vitamins and foods rich in folate.

    How to speed up your metabolism – 7 ways to speed up your metabolism

    How to speed up metabolism? “Whatever I do, I can’t lose weight,”  and also “I’m damned, I have a slow metabolism.”

    I often hear statements like this among my patients, and the good news is that you are not cursed and that you can speed up your metabolism.

    It is important to remember that you are unique: Everyone is born with a unique and different biochemical system. You own trillions of small energy factories called mitochondria that produce fuel that drives your entire body. If you can remember some biochemistry classes, then you know that mitochondria convert oxygen from the breathing process and the food you eat into the energy your body uses.

    Look at mitochondria as small motors in your body. When scientists mention metabolism, they often think of mitochondria. Efficient mitochondria mean that your body successfully burns calories and has a fast metabolism. Mitochondria that are not effective do not burn calories and slow down your metabolism.

    What is metabolism

    how to speed up metabolism

    Metabolism is a term that describes the chemical reactions involved in the life and energy production of the cells of every living thing- Metabolism can be divided into two categories:

    • Catabolism – the breakdown of molecules to obtain energy
    • Anabolism: the synthesis of all the compounds needed by cells

    Metabolism is directly focused on nutrition and available nutrients. Energy formation is one of the vital components of metabolism.

    Nutrition metabolism and energy

    Nutrition is the key to metabolism. Metabolic pathways are associated with nutrients that are broken down for energy. This energy is needed by the body to create new proteins and nucleic acids, DNA and RNA.

    Nutrients vary, and each has its own function. Optimal intake of each is required for the normal functioning of the body. If they are not ingested sufficiently, the health condition worsens.

    Nutrients are needed to supply energy, and chemicals are needed that the body cannot synthesize independently. Food provides large amounts of substances essential for the construction, storage, and repair of the organism and tissues and the normal functionality of the body.

    Reasons for slow metabolism:

    Some traits are genetically innate. Research shows that if you have a parent with type 2 diabetes, your mitochondria are probably 50% less effective at burning calories than the mitochondria of a person without such predispositions.

    Predispositions mean that you will gain weight much easier and possibly develop in your body diabetes, further affecting your mitochondria.

    Other chronic diseases such as heart problems and depression may develop additional mitochondrial problems.

    Diet as a reason for slowed metabolism

    The biggest blow comes from your diet. Various aromas and calories give your cells and mitochondria information on what to do. When you ingest large amounts of sugar, inflammatory foods such as refined oils, or consume large amounts of food, you overload your energy factories and damage production.

    You should emphasize that you can also get a predisposition for your body to retain fat with your uniqueness. After all, your body is the number one priority, and it keeps you alive, and this fact may not fit your idea of what it will look like in a bathing suit when summer comes. In fact, your body is extremely well adapted to retain fat.

    YO-YO child,  a calorie-reactive diet or other extreme measures force your metabolism to slow down the storage of fats used on “dark days” that never come.

    To optimize mitochondria, you need to eat the right kind of food and eat enough of that food.

    Other reasons for slow metabolism

    Lifestyle can also affect your mitochondria. Environmental toxins such as pesticides, mercury, and radiation, as well as hidden infections and stress, can have a bad effect on your energy system.

    Your intestinal flora can be a problem if there are more unhealthy organisms than healthy ones. Bad microorganisms release toxins called lipopolysaccharides. When these toxins are absorbed, they lead to inflammation in the body and damage to mitochondria. Anything that causes inflammation and oxidative stress threaten your mitochondria.

    Fortunately, you have the ability to increase the number of functions of your mitochondria. You can’t turn back time, but you can follow these seven steps to optimize your mitochondria’s work and speed up your metabolism.

    How to speed up metabolism? 7 ways

    How to speed up metabolism?

    1. Eat lots of healthy fats. Healthy fats like those from avocados, walnuts, and various seeds, along with fats from wild fish, are the fuel that your mitochondria love. Favorite “gasoline” for mitochondria are medium glycerites or MTC oils found in coconut oil.
    1. Nutritionists miss various topics, but everyone agrees that we have to eat a lot of fresh vegetables and other plant foods. Foods rich in antioxidants are essential for healthy mitochondria and reducing oxidative stress.
    1. Avoid sugar and flour. This type of food causes high levels of stress for your mitochondria. In fact, fast-absorbing carbohydrates are the most harmful to the entire system. Detox diets include low levels of sugar and foods that trigger losing weight and improving general health.
    1. Don’t be obsessed with numbers. Quality above quantity becomes the key in optimizing the work of your mitochondria. Calorie intake is important. If you are of average size, take your weight in kilograms and multiply by 10. If you are very muscular and lean, multiply your weight by 13. If you are very obese, multiply your weight by 8. If you consume calories below this dose, it means that your body is going into a mode of starvation and burning extra fat.
    1. Move higher and faster. Research shows that high-intensity training (you do your best for 30 to 60 seconds, slows down, and repeats it several times) along with strength training are great incentives for the formation of new, improved mitochondria. By building strength, you build muscles and create a larger number of mitochondria, while interval training improves mitochondrial function. That is, you accelerate the burning of calories.
    1. Take it coenzyme Q10, alpha-lipoic acid, N-acetyl-cysteine, B complex, and omega 3 acids. These are compounds that speed up metabolism and burn calories and also reduce inflammatory processes in the body.
    1. Sleep well. Studies show that insufficient sleep increases inflammation, increases the risk of heart disease, and disrupts the immune system, brain, and cell performance. You can also improve your sleep with these 6 methods mentioned above to improve your mitochondria’s work.

    You have incredible power to influence your metabolism and your health. Accelerating your mitochondria will speed up your metabolism, and your body will eventually become fit and healthy. Even if you have a genetic predisposition, you can control some predetermined parameters with a healthy diet and lifestyle changes.

    Dr. Hulda Clark’s antiparasitic program for beginners

    Dr. Hulda Clark’s antiparasitic program for beginners and people who are necessary cleansing the organism.

    Parasites can do great damage to the human body, weaken our immune system and cause many diseases. For that reason, it is necessary to eliminate parasites from our bodies promptly. Elimination of all parasites from the body is impossible to achieve with clinical drugs because they can cover only a few species. These drugs tend to have side effects.

    Although many plants have anti-parasitic properties, Dr. Clark discovered that three plants in combination could destroy over 100 species of parasites without any side effects and side effects in the body.

    Antiparasitic program and its application

    Many doctors are not trained to notice infections caused by dangerous organisms. These infections can be allergies, digestive problems, sleep problems, joint pain, mood swings. The infections pass without a diagnosis, worsening the organism’s condition.

    You can get one of these symptoms from your pets, from an infected person, from contaminated food and water, insect bites, and even by inhaling eggs through the air. These facts make us moving targets.

    Dr. Hulda Clark has recognized a treatment called an antiparasitic program as a life-saving way to cleanse these parasites and relieve the disease’s symptoms. In this way, many of her patients returned their health to normal.

    These are the plants that Dr. Clark identified as a key factor in cleansing the body of parasites:

    Black nut juglans nigra and antiparasitic program

    Toxocara canis antiparasitic program

    This plant has been used for centuries by Native Americans as anti-parasitic, anti-bacteriological, anti-viral, and anti-fungal—a natural remedy with the active compounds juglone, tannin, and iodine. Black walnut tincture kills adult parasites and is a basic ingredient in the antiparasitic program.

    Sweet Pelin aremisa annua

    sweet wormwood natural treatment

    Sweet wormwood kills parasites in the larval stage, increases stomach acidity and bile production. Sweet wormwood is a very important plant for a successful antiparasitic program.

    Clove eugenia caryophyllata

    This plant has anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties. It also relieves pain. The capsules and concentrated form of this plant destroy the eggs of parasites from the body.

    These herbs must be used together but as separate ingredients. Only if used together can we get rid of parasites. If we kill only adults, tiny eggs will soon develop into new adults. If we kill only eggs, millions of adults will strive to reproduce again and create new individuals. All these preparations must be used together as one treatment.

    Dying parasites release toxins such as ammonia. Ornithine and arginine are two natural amino acids that detoxify ammonia in our body. It is important to take these two amino acids together with an anti-parasitic program. These two amino acids also help the body get rid of excess nitrogen, protect the liver from damage caused by certain drugs and chemicals, and stimulate liver regeneration. These two compounds strengthen the immune system.

    Required for antiparasitic program:

    Parasites in our body

    About 40% of the world’s population is infected with the Toxoplasma gondii. People become infected by eating poorly cooked meat that contains cysts with parasite eggs, or when they come in contact with infected animals, they enter the body.

    This parasite is dangerous for pregnant women and can cause a disorder in a baby or a miscarriage in a woman and can also kill people with a weak immune system.

    It has been scientifically proven that this parasite is also present in many seemingly healthy people, and its presence in the body over time creates complications. 

    Scientists Sydney University of Technology has proven that this parasite directly affects mood and the brain.

    The antiparasitic program successfully removes this parasite from the body.

    Black walnut tincture:

    After the first week in the table Antiparasitic program, Dr. Hulda Clark for Beginners Pours 2 teaspoons into a coffee cup that is half full of water. Drink it on an empty stomach half an hour before a meal. Sip this dose slowly, do not swallow everything immediately. If you have an unpleasant taste, add a little juice of your favorite fruit. You sip this mixture for 15 minutes. This instruction on how to consume also applies to the first week.

    By sipping this liquid, you kill parasites in your intestines. You can use lukewarm or cold water, not hot water, because it destroys some compounds in this solution. You may feel mild nausea when consuming this solution.

    Take 2 teaspoons once a week for a year. This treatment will kill any parasites you get from your environment. After some time, the disease symptoms caused by parasites will decrease.

    Your environment friends, relatives should take 30 drops, in the same way, every other week so that they do not infect you again. In people who have cancer, this is fundamental because parasites are exclusively looking for a diseased organ to multiply rapidly.

    Wondering why you have to wait so long to take a new dose? This is due to stomach sensitivity, toxicity, or side effects.

    Consumption may be more frequent if you do not have any side effects from the above.

    Healthy people can use the antiparasitic program.

    This is just an example of taking the best adherence to the table’s instructions.

    Sweet wormwood capsules

    It is best to follow the intake regimen given in the table and also as above you can take everything at once if your health condition allows.

    Carnation

    Carnation from the store does not work in various conditions because it has lost its antiparasitic value. The best is the one from the capsules that has full potential. Take it according to the table.

    Ornithine

    Take 2 ornithines the first night, 4 the second night, 6 the third night before bed. Then take 4 or 6 capsules until you start sleeping normally. Stop taking this amino acid after seeing if you can fall asleep normally.

    Arginine

    By taking ornithine at bedtime, you can gather so much energy that you don’t need to take arginine in the morning. But if you stop drinking coffee, it is recommended to take one capsule again when you get up and one before lunch. There are no side effects if you take any medications and use this therapy.

    Your body produces waste every second. Your body releases toxins in several different ways:

    Through the lungs and breathing

    Through skin and sweating

    By the kidneys and the release of urine

    Through the intestines and great urination

    Your liver is the largest and one of the most important organs in your body. Your liver’s condition determines how long you will live and how you will look and feel.

    You have two filters to detoxify your body. The first is your liver.

    The blood contains nutrients and waste from your body. Your liver cleanses the body of toxins and filters them, and also takes nutrients from it. Your blood comes out of your liver cleaner in your second filter, your kidneys. 

    Your kidneys leave nutrients in the bloodstream and excrete impurities through the urine.

    In addition to the protocol for cleaning from parasites, it is also recommended to clean the liver and gallbladder with bitter salt. 

    Is a special diet needed during the antiparasitic program?

    It is unnecessary to take care of the diet during the antiparasitic program. There is also no special diet that accompanies the antiparasitic program. By consuming healthy foods, organically grown as refined foods, sugars, and other synthetic composition foods favor the development of parasites in your body. Dr. Cark also recommends reducing or stopping coffee intake during cleansing.

    Can we drink alcohol during cleaning?

    While it is not crucial to stop drinking alcohol during an antiparasitic program, you should do so. Alcohol is converted into sugars, and in that way, we feed both parasites and microbes.

    It should be noted that people who use an antiparasitic program and have cancer, used it or not, should use a special diet prescribed by their doctor or nutritionist, and also stop drinking coffee, smoking, and alcohol.

    For them, it is crucial!

    Can I continue to take medication during the antiparasitic program?

    Please consult your doctor as there may be certain interactions between the cleaning products you use and the elks you drink. This is very important to do before starting the treatment!

    Are there any symptoms when using the Dr. Clark

    Several people have reported cold-like symptoms. this is part of Hexermeier’s reaction. When organisms die in your body, parasites and microbes, and toxins increase. Then the symptoms of fever occur, colds or allergies. This is a perfectly normal reaction that should go away over time as you stop the program.

    An antiparasitic program can lead to sleep problems. This problem is associated with an increase in the level of ammonia in the body due to waste created by parasites’ death. The use of ornithine can reduce ammonia levels, and you can use Melatonin or DLPA to help you fall asleep easier.

    Chemotherapy – Foods that boost the immune system

    Toxic toxins released during radiation therapy and chemotherapy can have a terrible effect on our immune system. People who undergo these forms of therapy mustn’t have a deficiency of some minerals and vitamins. It is also important that they have enough food elements that will boost the development and functioning of their immune system.

    Foods such as vegetables and fruits rich in apigenin will have a very positive effect on the immune system. Talk about the food you need to eat with your oncologist.

    People living with Cancer cannot recover from this disease if they are resistant to chemotherapy.

    Chemotherapy food studies

    chemotherapy food

    Studies from 2008 organized by biochemists University of California Riverside have proven the natural dietary agent found in fruits and vegetables. Apigenin increases the exposure of cancer cells to chemotherapy and radiation.

    Researchers Xuan Liu and Xin Cai have proven that apigenin in fruits and vegetables naturally conquers cancer cells’ resistance to chemotherapy by breaking down certain proteins found in the cell nucleus. These proteins are necessary for the development of cancer cells. Apigenin is found in cherries, grapes, and apples. Other good apigenin sources are walnuts, primrose, celery, basil, artichokes, and juices made from plants such as various teas and wine.

    Besides consuming five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day. The guidelines for the diet of people with cancer include the use of grains rich in carbohydrates. A good choice of cereals is brown rice, millet, wild rice, oats, barley, buckwheat.

    Whole grain bread and pasta are a valuable source of minerals, vitamins, and fiber that support the immune system’s health. It also matters cleansing the body of toxins from the colon, treatment, and prevention of various intestinal infections.

    Water, proteins , nutrition

    food proteins immune system

    People exposed to chemotherapy should increase their intake of proteins that strengthen the immune system. Fish, turkey, chicken, mango meat, and shellfish are good protein sources for people with cancer. You must limit red meat and all meat products in the diet. Other protein sources are dairy products such as low-fat cheese, low-fat yogurt, and goat’s milk.

    It is vital to take a large amount of fluid for people who have undergone chemotherapy. We can also include various teas, juices, soups, and more liquid. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of liquid during the day. It is forbidden to take liquids rich in caffeine. You should always have a bottle with you, and you should consume liquid throughout the day.

    You should avoid Chlorine-rich water, and the use of clean bottled water is recommended for people with cancer. If a person taking chemotherapy feels nauseous while taking water, you can alleviate consumption by using a straw or cooling the liquid by adding ice cubes.

    Nove ž animals habits and cancer

    In addition to new habits that are very important in cancer treatment during chemotherapy, people with cancer can use some supplements that will also affect the development of their immune system and reduce some of the symptoms that accompany this form of treatment. In people treated with chemotherapy, low levels of leukocytes have been noticed below the allowed limit in laboratory findings.

    To regulate the level of leukocytes from the beginning of taking chemotherapy, it is recommended to use cordyceps, an autochthonous form of the Tibetan fungus that affects the bone marrow’s development and increases the production of white blood cells. Other preparations that can be used for this purpose are ginseng, oak gloss, and shiitake mushrooms, as well as the fungus Chaga, which actively influences the immune system’s development.

    How much chemotherapy and radiation releases large amounts of free radicals that damage cancerous cells and hurt healthy cells in the body is necessary to increase antioxidants’ intake.

    Of the very active antioxidants, we can mention vitamin c, which has an active role in ridding the body of excess free radicals and whose daily dose can go up to several tens of grams, coenzyme Q10, whose doses daily should be up to 400mg to effectively neutralize harmful oxygen atoms and of course astragalus which not only neutralizes free radicals but also has a wide range of effects that improve the immune system and reduce the effects that accompany chemotherapy.

    Epsom salt cleansing the liver and gallbladder

    Epsom salt is actually magnesium sulfate, a pure mineral with many health benefits. I think you will be surprised by this natural preparation used therapeutically by hundreds. Epsom salt has won many people’s hearts around the world with its healing properties.

    Is every epsom salt with the same?

    they are bitter

    Each Epsom salt contains the natural minerals magnesium and sulfate. There are different ways to produce and package Epsom salt, but chemically each is the same. Epsom salt can also vary in quality. We distinguish between bitter salt for human use and that used for plants.

    Where can I buy epsom salt?

    A large number of pharmacies and health food stores offer Epsom salt. Try to find it also online. Just pay attention to the quality and what it is actually used for. You need Epsom salt for human use that has greater purity.

    Is epsom salt for oral use?

    The World Health Organization marks Epsom salt as a laxative. Check with the manufacturer or on the packaging if it is for oral use. Also, check with your doctor if you are taking any therapy to use Epsom salt if there are any problems.

    Epsom salt with use for muscles

    You can use Epsom salt for tired muscles, pain in the arms and legs, and gout

    Add two cups of Epsom salt to your tub

    Lie in the tub for a minimum of 12 minutes

    Epsom salt will dissolve faster if you immerse it under running water

    Gallstones

    gallstones

    By decontaminating the liver and removing stones, we directly improve the process of cleansing the body and the organism’s overall health. This way, you can suppress all your own allergies, and only a few treatments are required for this. Unbelievable, but with this program, back pain, pain in the arms, and the shoulders caused by some autoimmune reactions disappear.

    In the West, it is believed that hepatic stones located in the left-right duct of the liver are usually thought to end up in the bile and are associated with sweeteners:

    No malignant narrowing

    Cyst

    Carcinogenic tumors of the bile

    In general, in the east, hepatic stones are associated with bacterial infection of the bile ducts and their narrowing. This process peaks in the thirties and forties and is equally prevalent in both men and women. People who have a high intake of carbohydrates and very little fat and protein in their diet are especially susceptible. It has been proven that in this way, the activity of the gallbladder is reduced and that the accelerated accumulation of stones also occurs.

    In terms of appearance and composition, stones that form in the bile ducts are the same as stones in the bile. However, the place where these two types are formed differs.

    Bile and liver function

    Most of us know that our liver’s role is the production of bile, which is directly connected to the gallbladder via the intrahepatic bile ducts.

    The gall bladder is connected to the bile ducts and functions as a storehouse for bile, Epsom salt greenish-brown, alkaline fluid.

    The use of fats and oils affects the bile in the sense that it is poured out after 20 minutes, and the bile reserves end up along the common bile ducts and finally in the intestines. Several people experience discomfort during this daily metabolism due to gallstones’ presence.

    Formation and composition of gallstones

    Stones are formed as a crystalline mass and are formed from bile mixtures, cholesterol, and calcium salts. Gallstones can produce fearful pain with bile duct obstruction.

    20% of people in the world’s population develop gallstones over time, while 15% of them develop some side effects such as pain or bile duct blockage.

    There is a colony in each gallstone microbes. When the stones increase or when their number increases by back pressure on the liver, it affects less bile production. Thanks to the gallstone, cholesterol does not leave the body as much as it should, and as a result, the level rises blood cholesterol. Since gallstones are porous, microbes easily settle in them, and it becomes a center for the reproduction and spread of new microbes. You cannot completely eradicate gastric and intestinal infections without removing gallstones.

    The dominance of gallstones begins with microscopic pieces of cholesterol. Over time, the stones slowly increase and develop up to 2 mm. Most of this material is excreted from the bile in the sand.

    Most of the yellow sand successfully leaves the gallbladder until about 10% of the sand is retained. This 10% of sand of a special shape prevents it from leaving the gallbladder that over time can become larger stones and cause more significant health problems.

    Retaining gallstones

    Gallstones can be retained due to lack of physical activity, inadequate diet, psychological pressures, infections, or other health problems.

    Jaundice occurs in patients in whom the gallstone is stuck in the bile duct. Then comes the symptoms of yellow skin.

    When cleansing the liver or gallbladder, the following two plans should be taken (to get rid of excess stones):

    Antiparasitic program

    Kidney cleansing plan

    People with a large volume of gallstones over 1 cm generally do not try to clean because they know that they will not get rid of these stones. However, many people who have problems with larger stones, although they cannot get rid of them, have successfully reduced the symptoms of the presence of large stones. By cleansing the liver.

    Who can do cleansing with epsom salt

    Liver and gallbladder cleansing is actually safe for people with an optimal health picture and people without major health complications. By using fatty foods, you may have a certain dose of risk. Do not clean with Epsom salt if you have constipation.

    Preparation for cleansing the liver and bile with epsom salt

    To successfully clean the liver, I note that a week before liver cleansing, it is necessary to do parasite cleansing and kidney cleansing.

    Suplementation>

    Epsom salt 4 tablespoons

    Three cups of water (one cup 250ml)

    Half a cup of olive oil

    Two  small grapefruit, best fresh

    Ornithine 4 to 8 capsules

    A large plastic straw to drink the potion

    Jar with lid

    Tincture of black walnuts of any strength (ten to twenty drops to kill parasites coming from the liver)

    Choose a day for cleansing the liver, and I recommend that it be Saturday because you will have to rest until the end of the day and tomorrow. Avoid taking any medications. Break the plan for cleaning from parasites and cleaning the kidneys one day before Saturday. Consume a light breakfast and lunch without any fats.

    Beginning of the bile and liver cleansing program with epsom salt

    Avoid eating and drinking after 2 pm, and prepare your Epsom salt, magnesium sulfate. Mix 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt in 3 cups of water. Make 4 runs from this mixture; each run will be ¾ one cup. Keep these 4 followings in the refrigerator to keep it cool.

    At 6 pm, drink one dose of Epsom salt.

    Additionally, drink another small amount of water after this.

    At 8 pm, drink another dose of a cup of Epsom salt.

    Get ready for bed at 9 p.m.

    At 21:45, pour ½ cups of olive oil into a bowl. Squeeze the grapefruit, leave the pulp and remove the firm part and the grapefruit flesh. It would help if you got about ½ a cup of grapefruit juice.

    Mix grapefruit juice, olive oil, add black walnut tincture and pour it into a jar. Mix everything in a jar until the ingredients are completely combined.

    Go to the toilet once or twice and drink this mixture you made exactly at 10 pm.

    Take 4 capsules of Ornithine with the first sips. This mixture should be drunk for 5 minutes on a straw that you have prepared; older or weaker people should drink for about 15 minutes longer.

    After that, immediately lie on your back and watch to be completely calm for the next 20 minutes. Then your bile ducts are completely dilated, and your gallstones leave the gallbladder, which you can easily feel. If you do not lie still on your back with your head raised on a pillow, the complete program may fail because your gallstones will not be able to come out. You will not feel any pain. Try to fall asleep, and during the night, you should sleep as much as possible on your left side of your beds.

    The second day of cleaning with epsom salt

    Next morning:

    Drink the third dose of Epsom salt in the morning at 6 o’clock. If you feel nausea, wait for it to pass early in the morning, and only drink Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate.

    Lie in bed on your back again.

    Two hours later, drink your 4th dose of Epsom salt.

    Two hours after consuming the last dose of Epsom salt, you can start eating foods like fruit juice, to begin with, and then some lighter foods.

    You will go to the toilet very often during the day. You can see a lot of green stones in your feces. It is a gallstone that you will get rid of with this treatment’s help. You should repeat this treatment in 14 days to be completely sure that your liver has been cleansed.

    After the treatment, you should take many fluids due to possible dehydration.

    Medicinal herbs in the treatment of gallbladder diseases

    herbs that help you

    The most common cause of gallbladder problems is gallstones. In many cases, the stone is so small that you can throw it out of the body without you even noticing, but it can also be larger than 3 cm. Of people who have gallstones, only one in five has symptoms of the disease.

    Taking birth control pills and hormones during menopause increases the risk of gallstones, as well as medications to lower blood cholesterol levels. Obese people and those who suffer from constipation are more likely to get gallstones.

    Epsom salt’s use contributes to the gallbladder’s health: watercress, chicory, artichoke, rosemary, saffron.

    Vitamins, antioxidants are medicines

    Vitamins are organic substances necessary for the optimal functioning of our body. With a few exceptions, our body cannot produce them independently (e.g., D, K). To stay alive, we need to get vitamins from food or dietary supplements. 
    Dutch physician Christiaan Eijkman discovered the existence of vitamins and this discovery in 1929. received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

    Vitamins and their role in the body

    vitamin cThe name vitamin was coined by the Polish biochemist Kasimir Funk in 1912. year, deriving it from the Latin word for life, vita, and suffix amine (at that time, it was considered that all vitamins belong to the chemical group of amines, which today we know is not true).

    In our body, vitamins play a major role and are indispensable components of biochemical mechanisms. They are components of the enzyme systems that regulate our metabolism by keeping us active and capable. Our body uses them to build, develop and rebuild tissues. They are necessary for our growth, vitality, and general well-being.

    Vitamin division

    Thirteen well-identified vitamins are divided into two basic groups according to their fat or water solubility. Fat-soluble vitamins (D, E, K, A) are stored in the body’s fat stores, so there is no need for their daily intake, while water-soluble vitamins (C, eight vitamins B) cannot build up stocks, so their daily consumption is recommended.

    Vitamins in the diet

    A well-balanced diet contains all the necessary vitamins. A person who eats adequately can thus correct any vitamin deficiencies. However, people on special diets, increased physical activity, under stress, people recovering from illness or surgery, people suffering from certain types of gastrointestinal disorders, pregnant and breastfeeding women should take higher doses of vitamins (usually in the form of vitamin supplements) to meet the needs of increased metabolism.

    Antioxidants

    Today, there is often a belief in the general population that vitamins, especially those that act as famous antioxidants, can be “cures” for several diseases. Thus, we talk about vitamins as medicines for a wide range of pathological conditions, from the common cold to cancer. One of the reasons is certainly the susceptibility to marketing campaigns of pharmaceutical giants that promote universal vitamin intake. Nowadays, there is a consensus that vitamins are necessary for the body’s optimal functioning. The only question is in what doses.

    In the scientific community, there is no single common position on whether to take vitamins in quantities that are greater than the body’s daily needs. As we will show in this article, research is at least contradictory so that despite the great knowledge about vitamins, there are still a lot of unknowns and doubts related to them. 

    The antioxidant debate

    vitamins antioxidants

    Vitamin C, E, and beta carotene (a substance converted to vitamin A in the body) are thought to act as antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances that counteract the action of oxygen radicals, unstable compounds that are normally formed in the body’s cells as a result of cellular metabolism.

    They can damage a cell in many ways, damage DNA, and potentially increase cancer risk. Simultaneously, oxygen radicals chemically convert blood fats into bad LDL cholesterol, which settles on the walls of blood vessels. The hypothesis of these vitamins’ action against cancer and cardiovascular diseases is based on these facts. What is the evidence for that? Numerous studies have shown that people who consume many fruits and vegetables (the most important source of vitamins) have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease than those whose diets are poor in fruits and vegetables.

    It has also been proven that people with an inadequate diet (lack of fruits and vegetables) have a higher risk of developing cancer forms. However, the basic criticism of these studies is that they do not prove that vitamins have this effect in isolation, so hypothetically, some other substance in fruits and vegetables has this effect.

    You should note that oxygen radicals also have their “good” role in the body. Namely, some of them participate in the immune system’s normal functioning by using them to “kill” white blood cells. Therefore, overdoing it with antioxidants can do that function. 

    Vitamin C

    Linus Pauling

    Linus Pauling

    Along with several other megavitamin therapy proponents (Dr. Roger Williams, Dr. Irwin Stone …), the double Nobel laureate certainly plays the most important role. Linus Pauling (February 28, 1901 – September 19, 1994). It is hard to imagine the situation he found himself in 1970. in his book “Vitamin C and the common cold,” he announced that megadoses of vitamin C have a preventive and therapeutic effect against heart disease, cancer, and infections. At that time, vitamins were not given much importance, and many thought that only some weirdos wasted time researching their effects.

    Today, twelve years after Pauling’s death, his revolutionary ideas are still controversial in some segments. Pauling was one in a series of megavitamin therapy proponents, therapy with very high doses of vitamins, even up to 600 times higher than the recommended daily intake. Today, megavitamin therapy is just one aspect of the still controversial orthomolecular medicine (a term also introduced by Pauling), which seeks to treat the disease with high doses of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural fibers, antioxidants).

    Linus Carl Pauling, an American, was considered the greatest chemist of the 20th century. Century. He was a pioneer in applying quantum mechanics in chemistry (the laws of quantum mechanics can explain many relationships in chemistry and molecular biology). He is considered one of the founders of molecular biology. He was a versatile person, and in addition to chemistry and biology, he was also involved in metallurgy, immunology, anesthesiology, psychology, nuclear weapons, radioactivity. He received the first Nobel Prize in 1954. Mr. for chemistry for a paper in which he described chemical bonds’ nature, while he received the second Nobel Prize in 1962. for peace because of the campaign he launched against nuclear tests above the ground, he became the first person in history to be honored twice. Later in life, he became a staunch advocate of regular consumption megadose of vitamin C

    The effect of vitamin C on the body

    Today, the effect of vitamin C is very well known promotes iron absorption from food, creates and protects collagen (a protein that connects cells in the body), maintains the immune system, reduces the accumulation of fat on the walls of blood vessels, helps the growth of bones, teeth, gums, ligaments, helps create hormones that control our reactions on stress. Vitamin C also works against cancer. It prevents the conversion of nitrates from canned foods to carcinogenic nitrosamines in gastric juice. An in vitro study by the US National Institutes of Health, conducted in 2005. indicates the possible toxicity of higher doses of vitamin C to the cells of some forms of cancer in humans, which to some extent supports Pauling’s claims.

    Studies with vitamin C.

    On the other hand, several studies modified Pauling’s hypothesis about the effects of vitamin C. Thus, in the early 1970s, Anderson and co-workers conducted a clinical study on 818 volunteers in which one group was given megadoses (4,000 mg/day) of vitamin C for the duration of a cold. the dose is 75 mg daily) and the other a placebo. The results showed that vitamin C did not prevent the onset of the common cold, but people who took it had less pronounced symptoms and faster recovery by up to 30% of the control group.

    Similar results are given by recent studies conducted by Coulehan et al. Opponents of megavitamin therapy cite the harmful effects of high-dose vitamin C, primarily chronic diarrhea, and the increased incidence of kidney stones because part of vitamin C is converted to oxalic acid and oxalates, which can be deposited in the kidney as calcium oxalate and form oxalates. Stones. On the other hand, proponents of megadoses of vitamin C counter the fact that vitamin C is a diuretic, i.e., it increases the flow of urine through the kidney and prevents the formation of stones.

    You can conclude that the evidence for taking high-dose vitamin C is at least contradictory. Some experts claim that it is useful for the human body, while others express their doubts. Today, however, moderation’s attitude prevails in the medical community, i.e., to megadose vitamin C (> 1000 mg/day) is not necessary. Still, it is enough to take up to 500 mg per day.

    Vitamin E

    vitamin e

    Dr. Shute in 1930. was the first to use high doses of vitamin E to treat cardiovascular patients.

    As for vitamin E (tocopherol), research has shown that it certainly has a beneficial effect in heart patients and potentially in cataracts, Parkinson’s disease, and prostate cancer. Thus, a survey was conducted in 1995. Mr. states that people who took high daily doses of vitamin E (400 IU per day) had a significantly more favorable ratio of blood fats, which are an important factor in cardiovascular disease.

    Another study found that 100 IU of vitamin E a day reduced heart disease risk by half. Scientists from Cambridge in 1996. Mr. indicated a 75% reduction in the incidence of non-fatal heart attacks in individuals taking 400 to 800 IU daily.

    On the other hand, researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore found interesting data analyzing the results of 19 studies (involving over 136,000 patients) related to vitamin E. They found that people who took more than 400 IU of vitamin E a day had a 10% higher risk of dying than those who did not take it. Today it is recommended to take 10 in a day. 

    Beta carotene

    avitaminosis vitamin a

    Although considered an antioxidant, two recent studies show that people who took 20 mg or 30 mg of beta carotene a day for a longer period of time had a higher frequency of lung cancer those deaths than those who did not. (1st study: 28% more cancers, 17% more deaths, second: 18% more cancers, 8% more deaths). However, not all studies have yielded negative results. That’s how it was in 1993. Mr. a study was performed that resulted in a 21% reduction in gastric cancer mortality in people taking the combination beta carotene, vitamin E, and selenium.

    Food or vitamin preparations

    Although we do not call them medicines, vitamins in high doses act like medicines to cause side effects and harmful effects. For example, vitamin A in doses higher than 25,000 IU is known to cause severe liver damage, bone disease, and when taken by pregnant women, is teratogenic (causes fetal malformations).

    Higher daily doses of vitamins are recommended for people with intensified physical activity (athletes, business people), people under stress, diet, and people recovering from illness or surgery. However, for taking megadoses of vitamins to improve health, there is still not enough evidence of the effectiveness of such a large intake of vitamins on human health.

    Summary

    This does not mean that vitamins should be discarded. On the contrary, given the pace of today’s life, poor quality, monotonous and irregular diet, vitamin deficiency has become a serious problem. Due to all the above, we recommend consuming as many fresh, unprocessed foods as a vitamin source and supplementing vitamin intake with adequate vitamin preparations, noting that although synthetic vitamins give satisfactory results, the benefits of natural vitamins far outweigh them at various levels. The recommendation goes in the direction of fresh fruits and vegetables. Because in addition to micronutrients (vitamins, minerals) discovered so far, it potentially contains other substances that have a beneficial effect or potentiate the action of already known vitamins.
