Fine Tune Your Health Program

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, May 7, 2012

I’ve been chomping at the bit to begin a series of blogs about my upcoming talks at the Health Freedom Expo in Chicago June 15-17, 2012. But the times and titles for my two talks are not yet finalized on the HFE website.

In the meantime, let me fine-tune the points I’ve been making about my personal health program that make them easier to implement. Remember, I’m not telling you what to do, just telling you what I do. If you want much more detailed lifestyle instruction, simply join my Completement Now! Online Wellness Program.

1. Morning Bath
When I take my morning clay bath, I blend one third cup of clay in 32 ounces of water for about 5 seconds to disperse the clay particles in the water and prevent clumping. I do that twice, so I use 2/3rd cup of clay in my bath. Yes, walking up the stairs to the bathtub twice is part of the program. I use LL’s Magnetic Clay and also add 2 cups of Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes.

2. Protein Powder
So that my morning protein powder doesn’t clump, I pour 8 ounces of water in my shaker cup, add 2-3 TBSP of Whey Too Good Protein Powder and 1-2 TBSP of a Tropical Traditions Antioxidant Green Powder and immediately shake. If I wait until after adding my angstrom minerals, Natural Calm magnesium, NutraRev and Energy 28, (available at VitaCost.com) sometimes clumping has set in. The 2 for 1 special to purchase this excellent product is still available.

3. Neti Pot
I warm my neti pot with hot water so that I don’t have to go through the trouble of heating the water. I use alkaline filtered water from my Athena Ionic Water Purifier. The recipe is one half tsp salt. Presently I’m using Ancient Secrets Nasal Cleansing salt. It’s non-iodized. And I add one quarter tsp baking soda and 1 drop of tea tree oil OR a pinch of tumeric. I intend to do a daily neti pot cleanse for a long time to help with chronic head pain that I spoke about in a recent blog called Silent Sinusitis.

4. My basic snack. It’s Popcorn. Even for popcorn I avoid the microwave and just pop it in a 4 quart pot on my stove top. I use a few TBSP of Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions to which I add ½ tsp of Cayenne Pepper from Frontier Herbs. I heat the coconut oil on high for about one minute then switch to medium and shake the pot will it’s popping. I almost never get a burnt offering. After popping I add organic butter and sea salt to lightly season.

5. My diet is that of an “O” Blood Type: My protein sources are mainly Whey Too Good protein powder, eggs, lamb, salmon and occasional beef along with some bean, legumes, mozzarella cheese and lots of macadamia nuts. I eat a slice of sprouted bread with my eggs 2-3 times a week. I do eat one other grain- oatmeal 2-3 times a week. I also eat lots of vegetables but only two pieces of fruit a day. Why is that? My next blog will talk about the dangers of too much fructose and sucrose.

Enough about me, what about you? Why not incorporate some healthy practices into your world and tell me how you feel!

Media: May 6, 2012 I did a one-hour interview with the famous Cary Nosler on Wide World of Health.
Yes, it’s about magnesium but as I prepare for Health Freedom Expo June 15-17, I’m gearing up my magnesium knowledge and am amazed at all the new research available. Also, for one of my lectures, I will be sharing the podium with Morley Robbins who is a born-again magnesium fanatic, so I have to be on my toes!

What’s a Good Protein Powder?

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Saturday, April 28, 2012

I’m often asked about my daily routine. If you read my blogs you know I take 5-6 detox/chelating baths of clay and magnesium per week and recommend this practice to everyone to detox anything from too much calcium to radiation. I use the neti pot daily for the low grade sinus build up that causes headaches and dizziness. And do the occasional coffee enema but try not to use it as and antidote for cheating on my diet!! But what about breakfast, you ask?

Most people, including me, don’t have the time or inclination to make a traditional meal in the morning. So, rather than just grab toast and coffee or some sugared cereal and orange juice, I recommend a good protein powder.

The precursor to the protein powder I use today was designed in Canada and made in Sweden. Now, the same people have designed Whey Too Good (WTG) protein powder in Canada and have it made in the U.S.

Besides the time factor, people may avoid breakfast, either to lose weight or because they just aren’t hungry. The irony is that if you skip a meal, your body’s metabolism slows down to conserve energy and the next meal you eat may be stored as fat against the threat of starvation! And if you can’t “stomach” breakfast, it may mean you are too toxic from your overnight fast. (Rewind back to the top and follow the clay and magnesium bath url.)

Skipping meals also sets you up for blood sugar irregularities. I like Whey Too Good because it has a low glycemic index and controls blood sugar levels. And it’s not just a breakfast food and it’s not just a protein powder. It’s a balanced meal of protein, carbs and fat that I personally use as my only food source when I’m doing a one-day or three-day diet for weight loss or detox.

Whey Too Good
1. Is a natural source of amino acids & vitamins
2. Is made from whey, pea & rice
3. Contains 640 iu of Omega 3 per serving
4. Is low in sodium, carbohydrates and sugar
5. Reduces the risk for heart disease, cancer and diabetes

Due to my long-standing history with the team that makes Whey Too Good, I’ve accepted their offer to be their Medical Advisor. And as a thank you gift to me and my readers Premier Natural Health is offering a Two-For-One Introductory Special on their Whey Too Good product. Enjoy!

Supplements for Kids

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I’ve received several questions lately about kids and supplements. One was about a 10-year-old boy who has facial tics and his mother wondered if magnesium would help and what type to use. Another was an interview for a health magazine where I was asked if kids are sicker than they used to be.

Even 30 years ago I noticed that the grandkids were sicker than their grandparents. More colds and flus, more ADD and more and more autism. Parents are working several jobs, kids eat junk food and deal with more stress than ever and if they take supplements they are overly-sugared, synthetic vitamins and poorly absorbed minerals.

I’ve written about kids and supplements many times. You can check out these blogs: Calm Kids for the Holidays and Should Kids Take Magnesium. I even have a booklet that gives parents advice on how to keep their kids healthy and a homeopathic book for kids. You can find Kids Health: A Doctor’s Guide For Parents and Homeopathic Remedies for Children’s Common Ailments on my website under Books.

Yes, magnesium can definitely help tics. Anything to do with muscle and nerve spasms implies a lack of magnesium. But for the nervous system I would add essential fatty acids, zinc and other important nutrients. That’s why I recommend Kids Calm Multi, which has magnesium, EFA’s, zinc, etc. Looking for sites that sell the product I came across these wonderful testimonials on the product that might help you discern if this supplement would be good for your child.

Praise for Kids Calm Multi
1. My 8-yr old is doing so much better with homework no more spending 3 hours on it. His brain processes the work, he no longer feels intimidated by his work and he does it with great effort. I have seen a great1 improvement. My sister tried this with my niece and she has seen great improvements as well. So this is definitely a keeper. I recommend this product. It makes me a very happy parent and I will continue to use and tell others

2. Both my boys (7 & 12) are on this daily (for over a year now) and I plan to keep them on it until they move out! My youngest son developed a nervous tick due to choking on a hotdog – nothing helped him stop twitching (even counseling & trips to neurologist). My oldest son was struggling with middle school. I bought this product specifically for the DHA & Magnesium because I read these vitamins are essential for a healthy nervous system, anxiety and mood. Within 2 weeks of being on CALM, my youngest son stopped twitching his head & my oldest son began to improve in both his mood and academics. The taste was a little difficult to manage at first. But I learned to mix with water and orange juice and my kids love it. I LOVE this product and am soooo thankful for the results my boys have experienced.

3. I was skeptical but hopeful that this product would work. I mainly bought it because I was seeking the calming properties within the vitamin to help balance out my 6-year old who has hyperactive tendencies. I noticed, nearly immediately, that he was less hyper, slept better, and was overall calmer. I really, really noticed it when, this past weekend, my husband forgot to give the kids this vitamin for 2-3 days. I noticed a huge difference! Especially the oldest (the 6 year old). They were more hyper and slept more poorly. I was skeptical, but now I’m sold! I just ordered my next bottle and we’re not even halfway done with the first! Try it; you won’t regret it! My kids particularly like this vitamin in orange juice. They don’t mind the flavor at all. My nearly 4-year old and 6-year old sons use it every day and will continue to!

4. I bought this for my 8-yr old daughter. She just never feels well and suffers from anxiety. The doctors want to put her on Paxil and I won’t. I wanted to try something natural to make her feel good and feel happier. This has changed my family life. It’s really been that great for us. She loves the taste as long as I mix it with a little juice. When we skip a day or two, she notices and asks for it again. We will be sticking with this. With all those great vitamins, it’s a win-win.

I recommend VitaCost for low cost Kids Calm Multi. We know kids are very fussy with new tastes, so don’t give the supplement liquid at full strength but dilute it with water or juice.

Magnesium & Cancer

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I’ve never blogged about this important topic but recently a reader asked if there was an association between cancer and magnesium. Here are four major points I made about magnesium and cancer in The Magnesium Miracle.

1. Dr. Mildred Seelig wrote Magnesium In Oncogenesis And In Anti-Cancer Treatment: Interaction With Minerals And Vitamins. She noted an important relationship between magnesium deficiency and cancer, which should have alerted the cancer establishment to do further research. But unfortunately it didn’t.

2. J. I. Rodale wrote a chapter on cancer and magnesium in his 1963 publication Magnesium: The Nutrient That Could Change Your Life. He quoted Dr. Delbet, a French doctor who felt that magnesium acts as a “brake” for cancer. Delbet also observed that as the body grows older it grows more deficient in magnesium, and with this loss in magnesium there is a decrease in vitality, resistance, and cell regeneration.

3. Drugs such as painkillers, diuretics, antibiotics, and cortisone, many of which are inappropriately used, further deplete magnesium and other minerals, allowing symptoms to get completely out of control. Surgery, malnutrition, third-degree burns, serious injuries, pancreatic inflammation, liver disease, malabsorption disorders, diabetes, hormonal imbalance, and cancer are all seriously stressful medical conditions requiring increased amounts of magnesium.

4. Research has shown that even the pain of cancer can respond to magnesium. Cancer sometimes metastasizes into nerve bundles located in the neck or lower back and may not respond to even the strongest analgesics such as morphine. There is a special receptor site called NMDA that is responsible for creating this type of nerve pain; magnesium helps block this receptor. In cases of severe pain, intravenous magnesium has shown very powerful analgesic effects.

Each day more research comes to light about the importance of magnesium and I don’t want anyone to miss out on the best way to take care of your health. So, please spread the word about magnesium. Tell your family and friends, blog, tweet and Facebook about it because it’s not a message that’s saleable on mainstream media! I’m a little bit miffed right now because I found out that the company that makes an accurate ionic magnesium testing electrode doesn’t promote its product…perhaps because it will upset the current status quo. I’ll have more on that in the future so I can enlist you to put pressure on this company to make this information and this testing available to the public.

I also found out that one of my printed Death by Modern Medicine books is selling on Amazon for $108.00. Please, don’t get hoodwinked, just go to my website and get my eBook updated version for only $11.00!

And, I wanted to thank a client of mine. A well known artist and writer in New Orleans for gifting her friends with a subscription to my online wellness program. What better way to honor your friends than by giving them the gift of health.

Silent Sinusitis

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, April 9, 2012

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses due to a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection.

Here’s what happened to me recently.

After flying back from two conferences in LA in March my head felt whoozy and achy and I developed a demarcated line of pain just to the left of the top of my head going from front to back.

After several weeks of this my massage therapist wondered if it was related to my sinuses. I thought I’d just portaled into another world (ala Fringe) and was waiting for my Cortexiphan to kick in. (The drug that was given to Oliva by Walter when she was a kid.)

Willing to explore the sinus theory rather than living on the Fringe, I began doing a Neti Pot treatment once or twice a day. I’m happy to report that even the NIH recommends using a Neti Pot as one of their treatment options for sinusitis!

A Neti Pot is a cup with a long spout you can use to irrigate your sinuses through your nostrils. It’s an Ayurvedic Medicine technique from India and allows you to flush out excess mucus and debris from the nose and sinuses keeping them free of infection and allergens.

The symptoms of chronic sinusitis include: facial pain, headache, bad breath, cough, a constant need to blow your nose, a watery discharge, and nasal congestion. Published research shows the benefits of saline nasal irrigation for sinusitis.

This is great news when the alternative is horribly strong antibiotics which often need to be taken for months and also change the condition from a bacterial to a fungal sinusitis. This fact was found by researchers at the Mayo Clinic in a 1999 paper titled The Diagnosis and Incidence of Allergic Fungal Sinusitis. They concluded that: The data presented indicate that the diagnostic criteria for Allergic Fungal Sinusitis are present in the majority of patients with Chronic Rhinosinusitis.

What do you put in your Neti Pot?

Distilled or filtered water, salt, baking soda and a drop of a natural antibiotic/antifungal.

Here’s the recipe.

1. Use a clean 1-quart jar.

2. Fill with distilled or filtered water.

3. Add one teaspoon of non-iodized salt. Try Himalayan Institute Neti Pot Salt for $1.69 at VitaCost.

4. Add one teaspoon of baking soda (pure bicarbonate) but make sure it’s aluminum free. Bob’s Red Mill Baking Soda is the best.

5. Shake before pouring 6 ounces in your Neti Pot that you can also buy from VitaCost.com.

6. I add one drop of Tea Tree Oil to my Neti Pot or add 1 drop of Oregano Oil to the whole quart of water…because it’s so strong.

If you just want to use a saline solution add ¼ tsp of finely powdered salt or ½ tsp of courser salt to 6-8 oz of water.

I’ll leave it up to you to google a YouTube video to describe exactly how to use a Neti Pot. It’s also up to you how often you do the treatment and to follow your symptoms to make sure they are resolving.

For me, I was fascinated that the whole left side of my head would light up with a mild “head freeze” when I first began dong treatments. On the right side, I felt nothing. After a few days I also felt nothing on the left side and the head pain stopped. But I will continue to do a daily Neti Pot for a while until I’m sure things are back to normal.

And yes, I’ll cut back on the sweet raw deserts and fruit that can give me as much sugar as a chocolate Easter Bunny! Fungus and bacteria both live off simple sugars and if you have any sign of inflammation or infection that’s the first thing to avoid!

The Magnesium Wars

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, April 6, 2012

Here’s what the NIH history pages have to say about The Pellagra Wars when niacin (a B vitamin) deficiency scourged the South with “the four D’s” diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.

“Pellagra no longer stalks the nation as it once did. But during the early part of the 20th-century, pellagra, a disease that results from a diet deficient in niacin killed, many poor Southerners. Dr. Joseph Goldberger, a physician in the U.S. government’s Hygienic Laboratory, the predecessor of the National Institutes of Health, discovered the cause of pellagra and stepped on a number of medical toes when his research experiments showed that diet and not germs (the currently held medical theory) caused the disease.”

Now replace the word niacin with magnesium because we certainly are in the middle of The Magnesium Wars, and you have the following press release that you probably won’t see until 2025.

“Magnesium deficiency no longer stalks the nation as it once did. But during the early part of the 21st-century, magnesium deficiency, resulting from a diet deficient in magnesium, killed many people all over the world. Many nutritional doctors discovered the cause and stepped on a number of medical toes when their writings and research showed that a simple mineral deficiency contributed to the following conditions:

1. Anxiety and Panic attacks
2. Asthma
3. Blood clots
4. Bowel disease induced by constipation
5. Cystitis and bladder spasms
6. Depression
7. Diabetes
8. Fatigue
9. Heart disease
10. Hypertension
11. Hypoglycemia
12. Insomnia
13. Kidney stones
14. Migraine
15. Musculoskeletal conditions – Fibrositis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, eye twitches, cramps and chronic neck and back pain
16. Nerve problems – migraines, muscle contractions, gastrointestinal spasms, and calf, foot and toe cramps, vertigo and confusion
17. Premenstrual Syndrome, dysmenorrhea, infertility, premature contractions, preeclampsia, and eclampsia in pregnancy.
18. Osteoporosis
19. Raynaud’s Syndrome
20. Sudden infant death syndrome
21. Tooth decay
22. Toxicity”

An Anti-Vaccination Rant

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, April 4, 2012

I started to write a book about mercury several years ago and I’m finally getting around to finishing it with the help of activist, writer, all-round genius and mercury-poisoning survivor, Elissa Meininger.

While digging up research on mercury and its effects the following study surfaced. “Babies Sleep Better If They Are Drugged And Vaccinated In The Afternoon.”

Yes, that’s right! Researchers were investigating whether drugging 8-week old babies before vaccinating would help them sleep better. According to them, “Sleep is important after getting shots, because sleep is a sign of a vaccine response, and it’s important to maximize that response.” So why not force them to sleep and enhance the vaccine effect!

Unfortunately, they don’t seem to consider that drugging an infant can also cover up a severe vaccination reaction.

I also read that in this study the infants were given a combination of 7 shots at one time, which is probably why they had to knock the kids out so that they didn’t cry. As Elissa commented. “Why don’t they just whack them in the head with a hammer so when they get brain damage they can blame it on the hammer.”

Another “kick in the head” is that the drug they use, acetaminophen (Tylenol) can have serious side effects for children. Also, some children can be susceptible to autism because of a particular kinase enzyme deficiency which makes it impossible for them to detoxify acetaminphen as well as antibiotics and mercury!

This study comes out at the same time that we are told the incidence of autism continues to escalate and 1 out of 54 boys are affected.

The overuse of vaccinations also continues as medicine throws in the towel on antibiotics. Their only hope, they say, is to vaccinate everyone against everything because once you get infected with a germ there will be no antibiotic that works.

What medicine continues to ignore unapologetically is safe and effective herbal and homeopathic medicine.

Of course the natural medicine naysayers will immediately argue that herbs and homeopathy can’t cure spinal meningitis or a burst appendix. They very well could but the point is that we have wasted our antibiotics treating viral colds and flus to the point that most bacteria are now immune to antibiotics.

I definitely had the right idea back in 1979 when I treated mild to moderate infections and diseases with herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture, supplements and diet. Very rarely would I need to resort to a prescription medication. I even thought that in another 10 or 20 years most doctors would see the wisdom of this approach.

Boy, was I wrong!

Drug-based medicine has taken over and it’s now totally up to you, the health care consumer, to educate yourself and take responsibility for your own health.

Here’s my solution. You can reference my Future Health Now Encyclopedia to learn what remedies can replace medications. You can also join Completement Now! for a weekly module that will help you achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Nude Food Clothed In Minerals

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, March 25, 2012

I recently planted 16 Hibiscus bushes and was surprised that none of them were blooming. I see plenty of buds, but they just wither and die. When I got in touch with a Hibiscus nursery, I was immediately told that my soil lacked potassium, which is required in high amounts by Hibiscus.

This reminded me of the Truehope product, EMPower Plus – highly successful for treating manic depression, which is based on a vitamin and mineral formula for pigs that get irritable and moody!

Then, early this morning I was out for my walk and saw the fertilizer truck spraying the golf course. In the past I’d checked the three large containers that the operator mixed together and knew they contained minerals. One was iron, another magnesium and the third, a mixture of potassium, nitrogen and phosphorous.

Now tell me, when you went to your doctor and listed all your magnesium deficiency signs and symptoms (like anxiety, depression, muscle spasms, migraines, exhaustion, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high glucose) were you told to take magnesium? Not likely. You were probably offered an anti-anxiety drug, an antidepressant, an antihypertensive, a cholesterol drug or a diabetic drug instead.

My point? Plant growers, pig farmers and golf course maintenance men know more about minerals than your doctor!

It’s a tough lesson to learn but doctors don’t know much about minerals. In medical school we were taught how to diagnose disease and treat diseases with drugs. We were not taught to identify vitamin and mineral deficiencies. For that knowledge you are on your own to educate yourself!

How are you getting your minerals? One great way is to eat more Raw Foods to get as many unprocessed live nutrients as possible. The Raw Food industry is growing by leaps and bounds. And they have great proponents like my foster daughter Shakaya Breeze. Shakaya has a new ebook out called Nude Food that has the potential to activate your love affair with real food. Beyond her books and detox program, you can enjoy the fabulous picture and artwork that Shakaya creates. You can find her paintings and cards on Fine Art America.

Raw Food is best eaten organic and can be further enhanced by proper fertilization with complete mineral formulas. You can see this process in action by going to Remineralize The Earth, an organization that has 700 farms using remineralizing protocols. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, with Remineralizing formulas, you too could become a great farmer or gardener! In fact, that’s what we all should be doing. Spring is coming to the mainland, it’s time to plant your Victory Garden!

Diagnostic Medical Thermography

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, March 23, 2012

I remember speaking at the American Medical Women’s Association and getting into an argument with a woman radiologist. I was asking, and quite politely I thought, why she didn’t consider Thermography a safer tool to screen for breast cancer than radiating the body with mammogram X-rays. You would have thought I killed her first-born…and maybe that was her fear. Taking away her livelihood and her favorite tool. We have known for over a decade that Mammograms do NOT save lives. Now in the past couple of years researchers have finally come to recognize that mammograms can cause cancer with their cumulative ionizing radiation. So, what’s a girl to do? Why are we still getting our breasts smashed and irradiated with cancer causing X-rays? Good question. My advice? Find a good Thermography practitioner and get periodic testing. Even if you have to fly to LA to do it! I’m serious. While in LA last month I visited with my friend, Dr. Galina Migalko, a medical doctor who is skilled in Medical Thermography and Diagnostic Ultrasonography. Dr. Galina operates from her center Universal Medical Imaging Group in Los Angeles, CA. Thermography is a painless, non invasive, adjunctive state of the art clinical test without any exposure to radiation and is used as part of an early detection program which gives women of all ages the opportunity to increase their chances of detecting breast disease at an early stage. One of the reasons Mammography doesn’t save lives is that it is too late when it detects tumors. But Thermography may detect breast cancer years earlier than Mammography. Dr. Galina does much more than breast Thermography. Looking through her computerized full body Thermography scans I was amazed at what could be discerned about a patient’s health. Instead of chopping up the body into individual parts and doing testing, Dr.Galina prefers to get a full picture of the body and put all the pieces together to create an overall diagnosis. If she finds something on Thermography, she can immediately use Ultrasound to learn more if needed. This is far superior to having to wait and worry for weeks to do follow up testing on something that may have shifted in the meantime. Diagnostic Medical Thermography and Ultrasound are complimentary tests. When using these two diagnostic tests together the diagnostic sensitivity goes up to over 95%. And how much more sane than the latest “fad” of doing full body CT Scans with radiation doses equivalent to hundreds of chest X-rays. Thermography is unique in that it shows physiology or “what’s happening” in the tissues as opposed to CT’s, MRI’s and other static pictures of simple anatomy. It is the only imaging test that can show pain, inflammation, lymphatic congestion, and more. This testing is not just for women! Thermography can detect early signs of arthritis, neck and back pain, dental infections, headaches and sinus infections, immune dysfunction, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), digestive disorders, bursitis, ligament or muscle tears, nerve problems, as well as screen for strokes and detect cancer in the very early stages. Dr. Galina Migalko is also a trained and experienced Naturopath who can offer a treatment program based on your results so that preclinical conditions detected long before they become pathologic can be eliminated. So, I suggest that when you bring your kids to Disneyland, stop by and consult with Dr. Galina and stay “the picture of health.” For more information please go to the Universal Medical Imaging Group website.

RnA Drops: It’s the RNA Not the DNA!

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, March 19, 2012

I’ve been accused of being 20 years ahead of my time but I don’t want to make you wait that long to find out the latest. For the past two years I’ve been working intently on an amazing project that began over 40 years ago. At that time I learned about a water purifier grown from grains and trapped inside a cement matrix. That’s Right! Science Fiction! Twenty-two years later I was given the formula by Joe Dun Sloan, the maker of the D-Cell. And now I’m ready to share one outcome of that project: RnA Drops. RnA Drops is a food substance that may be connected to what the Bible calls Shewbread but is also referred to as “The Bread of Life”, in association with “Living Water”. The people working on the RnA project first noticed their health and environment improving dramatically by just being close to the process. Then we had a test group try the RnA Drops. Everyone tasted something different, from Doritos to dirt; from tobacco to vinegar. It was bizarre. As we began offering the drops to more people, someone grew an inch, another person got rid of their genital herpes, diabetic blood sugars dropped, and several people had rapid recovery after near-fatal accidents. After a heart attack a man with 20% heart function says his heart is back to normal after a year of taking RnA Drops. Then there’s the skin application: ReNew. People claim their moles are falling off, wounds are healing rapidly, and signs of aging diminish. I won’t even talk about the “bliss effect” of these drops but you can hear and read that in the testimonials at RnADrops22. Another reason why I kept this project under wraps was because our inspiration for the project came from a Non-Physical source called iON. But, I figure, hey, everyone claims the world is coming off its hinges and everything is falling apart, so why not add some miracles to increase the chaos. iON maintains that RnA Drops give new information to our RNA affecting our DNA via an improved tuning function of Chromosome14, allowing the replication of perfect cells. Imagine a photocopier that’s duplicating a faded master copy and the toner is also running low. RnA Drops “replenish the toner” so that a new master copy can make refreshed, perfect cells. Yup, that’s quite a mouthful and hard to prove unless you do before and after DNA testing. But we may not have to wait too long for that. After all, paternity testing to find the baby-daddy is only $11.00 on Amazon.com! If RnA Drops sound like something you can see in your world, simply go to RnADrops22 and engage. You’ll find the testimonials out of this world. For more on iON go to How iONic and listen to hundreds of hours of archived radio shows (on the Here and Now Page) created by me and my husband of 42 years, Bob. Yes, that’s another secret I’ve been keeping from you. Two years of radio shows with iON and Bob.
