Good Food Goes Bad

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I did an interview today with Dawn Klingensmith who writes for Body & More which runs in newspapers across the U.S. and Canada. During the interview about eating locally grown foods, Dawn said. “So, you’re telling me that good food goes bad!”

I thought it was such a brilliant statement that I said I was going to blog on it immediately. Also, I don’t want to blog about doom and gloom and wanted to give a positive message to readers.

Many of the health problems we suffer are caused by a synthetic diet that would kill a lab rat. Food dyes, preservatives, binders, fillers and flavoring are often chemicals that the body can’t digest.

The food industry is guilty of false advertising because it allows the labeling of “Diet” products. People who are overweight think that eating Diet products is a healthy choice. Not so. The main artificial sweetener is aspartame with is constructed with two neurotransmitter amino acids and wood alcohol. There are 92 side effects from using aspartame, including weigh gain!

What’s the solution? My message today is for you to join a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture. I started one in New York and it was a great experience. You can join a local farm, pay an annual fee and receive fresh produce throughout the growing season. Some farms are organic and most don’t use chemicals. The farms may also be able to supply free range eggs and chicken and organic beef. One farm I know of provided honey to its members.

So, get involved with what you eat. Eat from scratch and make sure that the food you eat goes bad not the other way around.

Healthy Desserts and Detox

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, March 22, 2011

A Future Health Now! member just emailed and I thought her’s was such an important topic that I immediately set out to blog about it.

She said I mentioned a couple of tasty desserts in her most recent module but didn’t give the recipes. They are probably buried in some previous module but I thought I’d dust them off and give them to everyone. They’re from the IBS for Dummies Cookbook that I wrote with my sister Christine Wheeler. And they include a recipe that my foster-daughter, Shannon contributed.

After you indulge in the following yummy treats, you can sign up to receive Shannon’s Free World Detox Day Guidebook and an interview we did together (page 6).

Actually, I’m just kidding about needing to detox after these desserts because they are actually quite healthy. Pure cacao (chocolate) is very high in magnesium. Coconut milk is an antifungal containing immune-boosting levels of medium chain fatty acids. Avocado is a fantastic health food with high levels of glutathione (antioxidant), Vitamin E and healthy fats. Limes and lemons are packed with Vitamin C.

Carolyn’s Chocolate Banana Cream Pudding

The name says it all! This recipe is probably already out there, but I haven’t found the original chef. It popped into my head when all I had on hand for company was frozen bananas, 100-percent raw chocolate powder (cacao), and coconut milk. And voilà: A dreamy dessert with healthy ingredients was born . . . and quickly eaten.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: None

Yield: 2 servings

4 small frozen bananas, cut into rounds
4 ounces full-fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons cacao powder
Strawberries or blueberries, for garnish

1. Pulse the bananas, coconut milk, and cacao powder in a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth and creamy.
2. Serve with sliced strawberries and/or blueberries.

Tip: Cacao powder is all the rage on the Raw culinary scene, so it’s easy to obtain at health food stores or online at stores like www.vitacost.com.

Per serving: Calories 152; Fat 6.7 g (Saturated 5.7 g); Cholesterol 0 mg; Sodium 5 mg; Carbohydrate 25.4 g (Fiber 3.5 g); Protein 2.2 g; Sugar 12.4 g.

Key Lime Mousse
This recipe, also from Shannon Leone’s Raw kitchen is fast and so delicious that it hits the spot every time! Avocados are non-sweet fruits, a source of healing vitamin E, and a source of healthy fat that keeps joints lubricated, provides insulation around nerve sheathes, and is great for the hair and skin.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: None

Yield: 2 servings

2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
2 limes, squeezed
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
2 tablespoons raw, organic honey
Sprig of mint for garnish
2 strawberries, thinly sliced, for garnish

1. Blend the avocados, lime, vanilla, and honey in a food processor until smooth and creamy.
2. Serve in a dessert cup with a sprig of mint and very thinly sliced strawberries.

Tip: To save yourself time, you can purchase organic lemon juice in bottles to keep on hand for when you don’t have lemons to squeeze.

Vary It! You can substitute 1 lemon for the 2 limes if that’s all you have on hand. And add more lime or lemon juice for a stronger citrus taste. You also can use agave nectar instead of honey.

Per serving: Calories 407; Fat 29.3 g (Saturated 4.5 g); Cholesterol 0 mg; Sodium 18 mg; Carbohydrate 39.5 g (Fiber 23.6 g); Protein 4.3 g; Sugar 19.6 g.

Radiation Therapies

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I’m being deluged with emails asking if I would recommend potassium iodide to protect us from radiation that is slowly encircling the world from the damaged nuclear reactors in Japan. However, high dose potassium iodide is only used within 20 miles of a nuclear meltdown to protect the thyroid. Taking it otherwise can give you too high doses of iodine. Most people should use kelp and low dose iodine supplements for generalized support of your thyroid. But what about the rest of the body?

At risk of sounding simplistic, this is why I’ve been recommending clay! I’ve been looking into ways of treating radiation poisoning because of the incredible amounts of depleted uranium in the Middle East. So, naturally, we’re bringing clay to Dubai. Therefore, clay becomes a natural treatment for the possible radiation that may fall on us.

You may also adopt the philosophy that the sky may fall but it won’t fall on me. However, to even out your odds you can start using clay. I’m sitting with my feet and lower legs in a bucket of ½ cup of clay (blended in water) and magnesium flakes. I use and recommend the clay and magnesium flakes at LL’s Magnetic Clay. Amazingly enough, baking soda also detoxifies radiation. Add 1 cup along with your clay and magnesium!

On the LL’s site you can find a specific Radiation Detox formula chock full of herbs including an herbal source of iodine and activated charcoal. The hot water in your bath opens up your pores to release toxins that bind to the clay but it also allows absorption of healing herbs. There are several good articles on detoxification and radiation on the LL’s site that I found very useful.

Another product that I recommend for heavy metal detox is called HMD-Heavy Metal Detox, a product that removes uranium as well as many other heavy metals.

Activated charcoal taken orally can also help neutralize radiation as well as other poisons.

Thyme tea, rosemary tea, miso soup and seaweeds are good antiradiation measures that you can also take. Remember, the survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the “seaweed eaters.”

And don’t forget about magnesium. It detoxifies everything. You can take it orally and also as magnesium oil in your baths. Look under Resources to see the type of magnesium I advise.

How do you choose what treatments and products to use? It really is up to you. Just read through the list and see which ones resonate with you and start playing with them.

Blinded by Science

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Wednesday, March 9, 2011

I have a half dozen new blogs started but something caught my attention that I wanted to pass on to you immediately. Go to Blinded by Science to receive a free download of a new book by the same name – only available until April 1st.

To get each succeeding chapter you have to make comments about what you read in a forum. You’ll not only get to interact with others but if the author, Matthew Silverstone likes what you say, he’ll include your comments in the final version of the book. It’s a new phenomenon – interactive book writing!

I intend to make comments because I know that we are blinded by science and I want to talk with other people who feel the same way.

Matthew says he wants “to move science in the right direction if only by a small amount.” Now, I don’t know what that direction is, but I’m willing to play.

Here is this week’s media list.

1. Hear the archive of my interview on the Robert Scott Bell show.
We spoke about some articles I’m doing for Mike Adams, on Natural News. Just go to the website http://www.naturalnews.com/ and click on my picture to see my articles. Robert and I talk about Helping Someone in the Hospital and the emotional causes of cancer.

2. I did a great interview about Digestion with Shira Litwack. It’s listed on her archive at WebTalkRadio.

3. On Friday March 11, 2011 I’m on a blogtalkradio show with Hollis Chapman on Magnesium although the show overview lists the title as Childhood Obesity and Diabetes.

Bioidentical Hormones Are Safe

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, March 6, 2011

A former patient in Toronto and now a member of Future Health Now! wrote to ask me about bioidentical hormones. I’ll call her Sherry.

Sherry reminded me that I had prescribed bioidentical hormones to her many years ago. She felt fine on them all these years but in the last year Sherry’s been hearing scary things about hormones. She told her doctor her concerns and because of her family history with three female relatives dying of breast cancer her doctor felt that if she was worried she should get off the bioidentical hormones. She hasn’t used them for about six months and lately hasn’t been feeling well and has trouble sleeping and her skin has gotten very dry. Sherry asked me if I thought bioidentical hormones were safe for her to use.

I told Sherry that it’s synthetic hormones that are poisonous but bioidentical hormones (the same as our natural ones) are safe. I’m on bioidentical hormone cream myself. Serendipitously, just minutes before Sherry’s email I received a note from my friend, Dr. Roby Mitchell who is a bioidentical hormone expert. Roby was commenting on a recent study called “Progesterone: the ultimate endometrial tumor suppressor.”

The researchers of this progesterone study in Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism had the following to say about their work:

“Estrogen drives epithelial proliferation, and progesterone inhibits growth and causes cell differentiation. The importance of progesterone as a key inhibitor of carcinogenesis is reflected by the observation that women who ovulate and produce progesterone almost never get endometrial cancer. In this review we describe seminal research findings that define progesterone as the major endometrial tumor suppressor.”

Roby says, “I was surprised when I first started prescribing bioidentical hormones at how ignorant the ObGyn community was concerning hormones. The addition of a methyl group to natural progesterone changes the molecule in such a way as to make it a poison to humans-methylprogesterone (Provera). This drug has been responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of women. Natural progesterone, on the other hand, is so safe that levels escalate during pregnancy. Natural progesterone and bioidentical progesterone prevents breast and uterine cancer.”

As for bioidentical estrogen, it mimics natural estrogen and doctors who prescribe bioidentical estrogen mostly use the safest estrogen (Estriol) and minimize the least safe estrogen (Estradiol). The estrogen combination most commonly prescribed is Biest which is 80% Estriol and 20% Estradiol. However, the allopathic medical community instead of opting for safety in the form of Estriol chooses to prescribe the unsafe Estradiol in an unsafe synthetic form fueling the breast cancer epidemic we see today.

Where can you get bioidentical hormones? Unfortunately, that’s the difficult part because so few doctors have been trained in the use of bioidentical hormones. I’d advise you to go to the website of the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists and use their Pharmacy locator.

Call the pharmacy closest to you and ask for their list of bioidentical hormone prescribing doctors.

You’ll also have to read up on bioidentical hormones so you can work with your doctor to receive the right prescription. My book, called Hormone Balance is not specifically about bioidentical hormones. It takes you through diet, detox and supplements to naturally balance your hormones. If after that program you still require hormones, read Dr. Michael Platt’s book called The Miracle of Bio-Identical Hormones.

Sprained Ankle Remedies

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Friday, March 4, 2011

Sometimes I think I injure myself just to make use of all my remedies. A few days ago I twisted my right ankle over the edge of the beach boardwalk. I also landed on my left knee where I sustained a bad gravel burn.

What did I do to be able to stand in one day and walk within two days?

I immediately opened my vial of my homeopathic arnica that I carry with me at all times. I took a few pellets for shock, swelling, pain and bruising and more doses every 15 minutes.

Then I had to walk home. You can’t hail a cab on the walkway or even on the streets in Maui but I made it.

At home I mixed a half-teaspoon of clay in water and put that on my gravel burn to pull out the dirt.

Then I poured several ounces of magnesium oil in a bucket of warm water and soaked both feet.

After the soak I applied arnica cream and ice packs to my ankle and continued to take arnica by mouth every two hours.

At night I put on a wool sock saturated with castor oil and wrapped my foot in a plastic bag. I slept on the living room couch because I couldn’t hop up the stairs on one foot. I supported my legs with several pillows so my feet were elevated.

The next day I was able to stand and took a much needed shower. Then it was more ice, more arnica cream and another castor oil sock at night.

I knew I was out of the woods when my gravel burn hurt more than my ankle sprain!

Today I’m using magnesium cream on my ankle under a clean sock and except for bruising pain on my ankle bone, my foot feels pretty good.

To hasten full recovery I’ll be sure to massage my leg muscles and get a professional massage to balance out my leg and thigh muscles from hopping on my left leg.

So, that’s it, all done without any pain killers and a gratefulness that I have so many remedies that really work!

Because someone is bound to ask, I get my magnesium oil, magnesium cream and clay from LL’s Magnetic Clay.

Articles on NaturalNews.com

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Tuesday, February 22, 2011

When I first met Mike Adams, The Health Ranger, in March 2010, he invited me to send articles to NaturalNews.com. I was interested but I still had a few thousand hours of my Future Health Now! online wellness program to finish. Well, that project is pretty much completed, so, instead of twiddling my fingers I decided to write some new articles. Since my wellness program focuses on preventing illness as I move forward on NaturalNews, I think take another direction and write more about natural treatments for specific health conditions.

Magnesium, Estrogen and Vitamin D

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Sunday, February 20, 2011

A reader recently asked me to explain the relationship between magnesium and estrogen and other nutrients. I’ll tackle estrogen and vitamin D in this blog.

Estrogen
I talk about the relationship of estrogen to magnesium in my Magnesium Miracle book. One of the original papers I referenced is by Dr. Mildred Seelig in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition and it’s available online at the Magnesium Water website.

According to Dr. Seelig’s considerable research, normal levels of estrogen enhance the uptake and utilization of magnesium by soft tissues and bone. She says this may explain why young women are not subject to heart disease and osteoporosis but then fall victim to the conditions when estrogen secretion declines at menopause.

However, in cases where estrogen is high and magnesium intake is low, the excess estrogen can quickly burn up magnesium making it even more deficient. In the face of low magnesium in blood calcium gains the upper hand and can lead to blood clots, atherosclerosis, kidneys stones, gall stones, heel spurs and calcium deposits in breast cysts and fibromyalgia.

Since there are so many signs and symptoms of excess estrogen, go to Dr. Roby Mitchell’s website and fill out his symptom profile on estrogen dominance. The treatment of estrogen dominance has to be individualized but if you have it you should at least be taking extra magnesium.

Vitamin D
According to the Vitamin D Council, vitamin D has co-factors that the body needs in order to utilize it properly. They are: magnesium, zinc, vitamin K2, boron and a tiny amount of vitamin A. The Council goes on to report that magnesium is the most important of these co-factors. Clinically it is common for rising vitamin D levels to uncover an underlying magnesium deficiency. So if you are taking vitamin D and start to feel worse rather than better, you might be experiencing magnesium deficiency symptoms and need to increase your intake of magnesium.
