Report from the Naval Expo

Report from the Naval Expo

th

In Regards To Your Health

The October 29-30th Navel Expo just finished and I can say without a doubt that this may have been the most engaging and well-received expo to date.  I got the opportunity to speak to different audiences three times over the course of 2 days.  First on Saturday for a shorter talk on Liver and Whole Body Detoxification, which was filmed and twice on Sunday.   The Sunday lectures were a longer version of the Detoxification talk and one on Adrenal Exhaustion and how it may be making you tired, stressed out and overweight.  Adrenal exhaustion may be the greatest undiagnosed epidemic in our world today, affecting millions of people.

My goal in all of these lectures is to empower people and to inspire them.  In my opinion when people are empowered they make decisions from a greater base of knowledge and when they are inspired they make choices that will help make their lives healthier and move towards infinite wellness.

The audiences for all of these lectures were curious, responsive, and asking lots of great questions.  Hundreds of people also stopped by our booth to sample the detoxification shakes (OptiCleanse GHI), blood sugar stabilization shakes (OptiMetabolix) and the newest member of our shake family, Bone Broth Protein Shakes.  The Bone Broth Protein shakes are a great idea because they provide 20 grams of protein derived from chicken bones combined with some natural flavors such as Banana Cream, Cinnamon-Apple, Greens, Turmeric, Pure, Chocolate, Vanilla and Coffee!  One of the best things about these shakes besides being delicious is that they contain large amounts of type II collagen, glucosamine and chondrotin sulfate, hyaluronic acid and gelatin making them effective for strengthening the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the body; helping restore, rehab and lubricate the joints, repair the lining of our digestive organs and act as a anti-aging formula for the whole body!
While they were at the booth people also got to do “mini’ Zyto” scans which help give immediate insight into what nutritional products will help bring them into balance.  These fifteen minute sessions were very popular once again proved by the people waiting in line.  This also shows how curious people are for more knowledge about what will help make them feel more alive and energized.
I am convinced more than ever that people are genuinely questing for help in regards to their health.  Not just on the physical level, but really on the emotional and spiritual levels as well.  We are hurting as a people and as a nation.  People are seeing that their health is not what it should be and the conventional medical system simply isn’t responding with anything but the latest drug interventions for the most part.
People want answers that help them find a way towards greater well being, not just as a response to a disease but more from wanting help when their bodies aren’t functioning well and experiencing “dis-ease”.  I use this term because as we all know illness just doesn’t descend on us one day out of the clear blue sky, rather it has been building in our bodies for days, months and years during which we may experience some symptoms of discomfort, pain or dis-ease in our bodies or not.

The time to intervene isn’t when a full blown diagnosis of diabetes, lupus or cancer is at hand, but rather precisely at the time when we sense our bodies aren’t working the way they should.  They aren’t functioning the way a healthy system does and we recognize it on some level.  This is what I saw in the eyes, the questions and the hearts of the people at this expo more than I have ever seen before.  As a practitioner with over 40 years experience this is tremendously exciting for me!  People are getting the message finally that health is not the absence of disease, instead they are recognizing that health is a state of balance between the well functioning physical, spiritual, emotional and mental aspects that make up the sum of every human being.
If you would like assistance on your journey to a more completely health state of being, I welcome your call or contact at 516 609 0890 or drdbrant.com.   Here is to a life of infinite wellness for us all!

Diet Soda Exposed

Diet Soda Exposed

 

47ae97e1-6518-4f55-9640-dfb5bbe7dcef
The proponents of diet soda, namely the soda companies themselves such as coca cola and pepsi would have us believe that drinking diet soda is an effective way to have our senses satisfied for that cold, refreshing taste with few or no calories. Unfortunately, the cold, hard facts are much less forgiving than the sales pitch of the soda companies.

Here is an overview of what research has shown about the real affects of drinking diet sodas. Most diet sodas are sweetened with aspartame. All ingredients that go into foods (including aspartame) are subjected to supposedly thorough investigation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which is charged with protecting the public interests.

In the case of aspartame, the FDA approved its use in July 1983 in carbonated beverages and other liquids. Remarkably, some of the FDA’s own task force learned that the original aspartame research was falsified to obscure the dangers of this chemical. The original research indicated that animals fed aspartame developed seizures and brain tumors.

By the year 1991, the National Institutes of Health had documented over 167 adverse affects from aspartame ingestion. In 1992, the US Air Force advised its pilots not to fly after eating anything containing aspartame. In 1994, the US Department of Health and Human Services had identified 88 toxic symptoms associated with aspartame.

Aspartame has been shown to be unstable in liquid form. This was some of the original research that was done on this chemical. Specifically, if a diet drink containing aspartame is stored at 85 degrees F. for a week or more, the aspartame breaks down into other chemicals including formaldehyde, formic acid and diketopiperazine, a chemical which has been show to directly cause brain cancer. Formaldehyde and formic acid are well documented toxic chemicals.

Not surprisingly aspartame has been linked to a variety of cancers including, brain, kidney, liver, lung and lymph.

Diet sodas have been shown to have other adverse affects more than the formation of various cancers. Research conducted at Harvard over 11 years on 3000 women found that drinking diet soda daily, doubled the risk of developing kidney disease.

In a 2008 study at the University of Minnesota of almost 10,000 adults, researchers found that even drinking just one diet soda daily (how many people drink more than one?) increased the risk of developing metabolic syndrome by 34 percent. Metabolic syndrome is that condition associated with increase in belly fat, elevated cholesterol and decreased testosterone that puts you at risk for heart disease and diabetes. Drinking two cans of diet soda every day is linked with a 500 percent increase in waist size. Additionally, there is a 43 percent increase in risk of heart attack or stroke from drinking more than one diet soda daily.

People who drink diet sodas have been shown to consume more food than those that don’t. Researchers who published a study in the American Journal of Public Health, state, “Available evidence suggests that artificial sweeteners, which are present in high doses in diet beverages, are associated with a greater activation of reward centers in the brain which alter the reward a person experiences from sweet tastes”

In simple terms this translates to drinking diet soda may result in food and sugar cravings because the aspartame disrupts appetite control centers in the brain. This can lead to a significant increase in simple carbohydrate consumption as well as food in general.

Research has also indicated that consuming aspartame changes our brain function. Specifically, it can change the balance of two critical brain hormones, serotonin and dopamine. Impaired dopamine production is connected to neurological conditions such as Parkinson ’s disease and low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, increased pain and aggressive behavior.

The lining of the cans used for diet sodas contain bisphenol-A (BPA), a know hormone disruptor. BPA has been linked to reproductive system damage in women and low sperm count and prostate cancer in men. It has also been linked to early onset of puberty, increased weight gain and breast cancer.

Additionally, because diet soda is so acidic it has been linked to dental enamel erosion. Furthermore when diet soda is used in mixed drinks it worsens the severity of hangover symptoms because it increases the rate at which alcohol enters the blood stream.

As you can see, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence condemning both aspartame and diet sodas as not being safe and not helping with people who want to lose weight. The truth is that diet sodas are nothing more than cell damaging, cancer causing, and hormone disrupting beverages that would be better off if they had never been invented.

If you would like more information about how you can recover from the damages of drinking diet sodas and other toxic chemicals found in our food system, please feel free to contact me. I have been working for over 35 years on detoxifying and rejuvenating people who want to feel alive and vibrant once again. I can be reached at drdbrant.com or at 516 609 0890.

GMO’s and Infertility: Is There a Connection?

GMO’s and Infertility: Is There a Connection?

 

images-3

According to a recent study rats who were fed a diet of GMO food ended up becoming infertile.  Researchers from different departments of the Suez Canal University of Egypt concluded that rats fed a GMO diet wound up not only infertile but also suffered from other adverse health effects as well.

As many of you who have been reading my newsletters know, I have long questioned the possible negative effects of eating GMO foods.  I have espoused the belief that we are unsuspecting participants in the largest food experiment ever conducted on the human population.  This experiment has largely gone unnoticed until people in the scientific, environmental and health fields began to question the efficacy of GMO crops.  

Research has been slow to come forward largely I think because the mega companies and agra businesses have a vested interest in not seeing research done that may cast a negative light on the effects of GMO crops.  This is beginning to change as can be seen by the results of this study and several other related ones.

The research scientists who conducted the Egyptian study concluded:

“GM corn or soybeans leads to significant organ disruptions in rats and mice, particularly in livers and kidneys. In addition they found other organs may be affected too, such as heart and spleen, or blood cells. The kidneys of males fared the worst, with 43.5% of all the changes, the liver of females followed with 30.8%”

In addition the researchers found that by day 91 of the study the rat population that was fed a GMO diet  were completely sterile.  

“The study found clear signs of organ pathology in the GM-fed group, especially in the liver, kidney, and small intestine. An examination of the testes revealed necrosis (death) and desquamation (shedding) of the spermatogonial cells that are the foundation of sperm cells and thus male fertility – and all this after only 91 days of feeding.”

This is not the first study to that has concluded that GM foods contribute to infertility.  Researchers in Russia found that hamsters fed a GMO diet became sterile as well.

“Using hamsters as the test subjects, scientists observed that consumption of GM soybeans, which have never been a part of these creatures’ normal diets, tended to slow sexual maturity and gradually eliminate the ability to reproduce.” 

These findings should cause all of us to consider what we are doing on a daily basis when buying and consuming foods and other items.  Think about it for a moment.  The next time you are in the supermarket and are going to buy the regular eggs, consider where those eggs came from.  The chickens were undoubtedly fed GM corn and or soybeans which means that the eggs they bear are also GM eggs.  Do you want to be serving something to your family that could cause their organs to be damaged and potentially cause them to be sterile?

Take this a step further.  When you consider buying a vitamin from the local health food store, GNC or CVS can you be sure that it doesn’t contain GMO’s?  I believe that most commercially manufactured vitamins have GMO bases (grown on corn, soy or some other GM medium) or are filled with binders and fillers which come from GM sources.  This is a compelling reason to buy only pharmaceutical grade, non GMO vitamin, herbs and nutraceuticals.

In the coming months and years, I believe that more information, studies and revelations about the destructiveness of GMO will come to light.  We are all having to make choices every day about our and our families health.  Make the choices that promotes their wellness, don’t eat or buy products made from GMOs.

If you would like help sorting through all of the information concerning GMO’s and altered food and vitamins, please contact me at 516 609 0890 or at drdbrant.com.  I would be delighted to help you and your family achieve infinite wellness!

images-10

 

Benefits Include Lowering Blood Pressure to Increased Memory and Decreased Pain.

There are many things in the natural world that can help us restore balance in our bodies when due to the stresses of modern life things have gone wrong.  The immune, reproductive, genitourinary, cardiovascular, digestive and elimination systems can all benefit from using natural substances like herbs and spices to regulate them, sometimes with effects that rival or surpass those of modern drugs and without any of the harmful “side effects”.

These herbs and spices if used on a regular basis can help regulate your blood pressure.  Try them you will surprised at how effective they are!

  • Cayenne Pepper –   the main ingredient in this spice that helps lower blood pressure is capsaicin which if used several times a week has shown long tern effects on high blood pressure.  You may have also heard of the benefits of capsaicin in pain relief.  This spice has multiple benefits because it helps reduce inflammation.  Enjoy  this herb regularly but be careful because it is has plenty of heat in it.
  • Garlic – a very tasty and flavorful herb, garlic also has significant blood pressure lowering capabilities.   It is also well established as a natural antibiotic so it serves in fighting infection as well.  Eating it raw has been historically shown to be the most effective way to experience its benefits, but cooking with it also works.
  • Ginger – another pungent herb, ginger is found in foods from many cultures.  This food if added fresh into your cooking or used in infusions has demonstrated substantial blood pressure lowering effects.  Ginger is also great for helping digestion and for combating a variety of other ailments including diabetes and morning sickness.
  • Ginkgo Biloba – a powerful herb which grows in China, it has been used for centuries to improve blood circulation.  Ginkgo has been shown to expand arterial walls which helps lower blood pressure as well as help improving memory and alertness.
  • Hawthorn (Hawthorn berries) – has a wonderful restoring effect on the entire cardiovascular system including lowering blood pressure.  It can be taken as a syrup, herbal capsule or as an infusion.
  • Olive Leaves – can be used either fresh or dried to strengthen and enhance the heart and blood vessels.  The active ingredient in the leaves is oleuropein, a elenolic acid that protects the heart.  Additionally, the leaves contain flavanoids which protect the heart and expand the blood vessel walls.  This can be taken as an herbal capsule or as an infusion or essential oil.
  • Tumeric – perhaps my favorite all round spice because of its incredible healing properties.   It is a powerful anti-inflammatory, lowers cholesterol, reduces the likelihood of blood clots and lowers blood pressure, particularly in people who suffer from auto-immune disease.
  • Valerian – a very gentle but powerful herb which has been shown to relax the muscles surrounding the blood vessels which improves blood circulation throughout the body.  It can be taken as an herbal supplement or a tea.
  • Yarrow – this European plant is well established for its muscle relaxing and spasm relieving capacity.  It will cause the body to sweat more and reduces blood pressure by relieving spasms throughout the body.

The natural world is full of amazing, health promoting herbs, spices and plants.  Please contact me if you would like help identifying the natural ways you can try to lower your blood pressure.  My phone is 516 609 0890 and my website is drdbrant.com

Game Changing Federal Study Links Cell Phone Radiation and Cancer

Game Changing Federal Study Links Cell Phone Radiation And Cancer

imgres-1

Earlier this month a study conducted by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) suggested that radio frequency (RF) radiation (the type emitted by your cell phone) can cause several types of cancer.

This study which was funded by the US government, conducted over two and a half years and costing over $25 million  is a big deal because it is the first US government study that confirms what many of us in the natural health community have been concerned about for years, that cell phones are a cause of cancer.

The basis of the study demonstrated that rats exposed to two types of RF radiation were significantly more likely than rats who were not exposed to develop a type of brain cancer called glioma.  Additionally, this same RF radiation exposed rat population also had a higher chance of developing a rare form of malignant tumor of the heart known as schwannoma.

Of particular importance in this study was that the exposure was consistent with what human beings are exposed to when using a cell phone.  Furthermore, as the radiation exposure levels increased so did the incidence of cancer in the rats.  The cell phone industry has long claimed that cell phones emit a harmless form of radiation in contrast to X-rays and gamma rays.  The findings of this study appear to clearly demonstrate that this industry position is not true.

The NTP findings also poke holes in the Food and Drug Administration’s website assertions that there is “no evidence linking cell phone use with the risk of brain tumors.”   It should also be noted that the RF radiation exposure was carried out using 2G phones which was the standard at the time the research study was conducted as opposed to the phones in current use now which are 3G or 4G.  The later generations phones put out a significantly higher level or RF radiation than their earlier predecessors.

In the US malignant brain cancers are diagnosed at the rate of 25,000 per year with 80% of them being gliomas.  Malignant brain tumors are the most common cause of death from cancers in adolescents and adults ages 15 to 39.

The authors of the NTP study concluded “given the extremely large number of people who use wireless communication devices,” “even a small increase in the incidence of disease resulting from exposure to RFR resulting from these devices could have broad implications for public health.”

In response to this new found potential link between cell phone radiation and cancer what can we do?  The answer comes in several parts.  Firstly, be conscious to not use your cell phone more than you absolutely have to.  Secondly, do not keep your cell phone by your ear when speaking, use headphones or ear bud type devices with the phone away from your body.  Thirdly, don’t keep your cell phone on your body when not in use. Fourthly, if you know you use your cell phone regularly consider taking either a homeopathic remedy for this type of radiation,  increase your anti-oxidant supplement intake and consider doing regular detoxification whole body protocols to ensure that you are eliminating some of this toxic material from your body.

If you would like more suggestions about how to protect yourself and your family from harmful cell phone and other types of radiation  please contact me at 516 609 0890 or at drdbrant.com

Introducing the Zyto Scan- A Unique Tool for Your Health.

The Zyto Scan is Here!

I am very excited to announce that we are introducing a new technology in our office that I feel can profoundly impact your health.

images

 

The Zyto scan is a completely non-invasive technology that provides immediate information about the biocommunication of the cells in your body.  Your cells are constantly adjusting to changing conditions to stay healthy and your body uses these communication pathways to direct available resources to keep in balance.  Most of the time you are not even aware of this ongoing process.

When your body encounters a health challenge, you may have a symptom(s).  Symptoms are the bodies outward expression of its best efforts to address this challenge.  You may experience symptoms such as fever, pain, fatigue or other signs of inflammation.  Too often you wait until you have one or more of these symptoms to take action to assist your body in reducing inflammation and regaining equilibrium.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could support your bodies day to day efforts to remain healthy?  Now you can!  The Zyto scan affords us the opportunity to ask questions of your body using galvanic skin response (GSR) of your hand by holding it on a hand cradle.  The information gathered provides a baseline that is unique to you.  Then we can ask questions about what areas in your body are experiencing the greatest areas of disharmony regarding food, body organs, meridians, teeth, vertebra and other body systems.  Very importantly, we can then ask the body what nutritional supplements will help to take systems that are out of balance and help restore them to balance!

Soda ingredient linked to cancer

Soda ingredient linked to cancer

soda can darkChemicals in the caramel coloring raise your cancer risk

At this point I would assume that most people who read my newsletter recognize that drinking soda is not good for us. Soda is a completely man-made product that is clearly associated with becoming obese, developing metabolic syndrome and/or diabetes, and substantially increasing our inflammation. Now there is compelling new evidence that links drinking a high level of soda with cancer.

A Consumer Reports study that was published earlier this year (February 18) in the scientific online journal PLOS ONE establishes a link between soda consumption and the risk of getting cancer. The study looked at one particular chemical of concern, 4 methylimidazole (4-Mel), which is found in some types of caramel color and is used to give colas and other sodas their distinctive brown coloring.

Death by Beauty

Cut, color, carcinogen?

Red_nail_polish_in_applicationHave you ever gone into a hair and/or nail salon to get your hair cut and found yourself gagging or getting nauseous from the smell of the chemicals? I know I have, and on more than one occasion I have left the hair salon with a headache.

So many people use different beautifying techniques or beauty products on a regular basis to make themselves look better. I have for a long time been an advocate of knowing everything that is in all of those hair dyes, beauty products, and skin treatments.

In investigating them, even I was surprised how many toxic chemicals are in most if not all of these products. Continue reading Death by Beauty

Endings and Beginnings

Over the years, I have read of many different systems of “manifesting” what we want to have happen or possess and since people tend to set resolutions around the New Year, I thought it might be useful to look at this process.

I do not know if all of these methods of producing what we want work, in fact I am pretty sure that some of them don’t because otherwise everyone who tried to manifest being a millionaire would be one I suppose.  But, I am happy to share with you what I do know and my thoughts about it.
