The Many Benefits of Vitamin C*

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is found in many fruits and vegetables. High doses of vitamin C can help improve immune function, cardiovascular wellness and overall health. Vitamin C also plays a role in promoting the synthesis of collagen, which is vital for healthy skin and blood vessels.* Unlike plants and most animals, humans are unable to manufacture vitamin C within the body and therefore must obtain it from dietary sources. This fact is the reason that many researchers, including the renowned Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling, suggest that many of us humans would enjoy better health if we supplemented our diets with amounts of vitamin C proportional to the amounts produced by animals that have the ability to manufacture their own vitamin C. That means high doses of vitamin C that far exceed the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). The current RDA is set at 90 mg/day for men and 75 mg/day for women which many experts believe is woefully inadequate. In addition, it's important to note that levels of vitamin C within the body also decline with aging, which can make supplementation increasingly important.*

Could An Egg A Day Help To Reduce The Risk Of Heart Disease?

Posted by berlinstreethealthcare on October 3, 2019 at 5:55 PM Comments comments (0)

In a study, a team of researchers from China and the United Kingdom determined that eating an egg a day could actually reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, BMJ reports. Researchers analyzed over 400,000 individuals in China, aged between 30 and 79 years old, and located in various geographical areas. The findings were published in the journal, Heart, and led by Professor Liming Li and Dr. Canqing Yu of the School of Public Health, Peking University Health Science Center.

According to BMJ, the results indicated that those who consumed eggs daily (which the publication notes was estimated to around 5.32 eggs/week), compared to those individuals who rarely consumed eggs, had a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Not only that, but they were also 26 percent less likely to suffer from a hemorrhagic stroke.


There is something to remember about a Chinese diet and a WESTERNERS TRADITIONAL BREAKFAST and that is; eating an egg with vegetables and rice and fish soup is better than a Western style breakfast of refined white toast, processed meat and sugar laden ketchup. With the right combination of nutrition eggs can be a beneficial addition to reduce the risk of heart disease.

How to keep you and your air healthy!

Posted by berlinstreethealthcare on August 22, 2019 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

An intervention study conducted in California found that (unsurprisingly), using an air purifier resulted in significant improvements in nasal symptoms in children with hay fever. The Samsung air purifier used in that study contained a HEPA filter that captured particles 0.3 microns and larger. Another HEPA air filter used in a 2018 study in China found that it improved symptoms in patients with hay fever. Studies have also shown that interior foliage changes air particle accumulation – rooms containing vegetation have lower levels of air particles.

Different plants may attract and remove specific toxins better than others, though, making it a good idea to use multiple species. Here’s a rundown of the top plants for different types of airborne toxins (peer-reviewed Journal references for this list are here, here, here, here and here).

A great way of starting an evaluation of your air is by using 2 petri dishes one for out side and one for inside then cover in foil and set in a cool dark place and see what grows. Dr. Pam

Plants that Have Been Shown to Remove Specific Toxins

Trichloroethylene: Epipremnum aureum (devil’s ivy or ‘money plant’)*

Benzene: Epipremnum aureum (devil’s ivy or ‘money plant’)*, Spathiphyllum spp. (peace lily)

Toluene: Hedera helix (common ivy), Philodendron spp., Sanseviera spp. (devil’s tongue or snake plant)

Xylene: Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ plant)

Formaldehyde: Osmunda japonica (Japanese royal fern), other ferns, Spathiphyllum spp. (peace lily), Chlorophytum comosum (spider plant)

General VOC removal: Purple waffle, Purple heart, English Ivy, Asparagus fern, Variegated wax and Crassula portulacea (jade plant)

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: removal attributed to bacterial species present on leaves of many ornamental plants (nonspecific)

Mercury vapor: Tillandsia usneoides (Spanish moss)

Ozone: snake plant, spider plant, golden pothos

General toxin removal: Spider plant, peace lily, english ivy and golden pothos

*Grown on an activated carbon filter system. Activated carbon is available for potted plants.

While it’s nice to have some data that link specific species to the removal of specific toxins (especially if you know you have specific exposures or an elevated body burden of a specific toxin), the research isn’t that extensive, and so we would still recommend a variety of species. Keep the air in your living and working spaces moving, too, since air movement increases the effectiveness of plants at removing toxins.

Fascinating Fact! While you may think that plants collect and detoxify air pollutants through their leaves, it’s actually their roots and the plant’s associated microorganism population that take up and process toxins.

Things to know about keeping healthy houseplants – avoid introducing plants to your home that have been sprayed with pesticides or come in plastic pots. Water your plants appropriately but don’t allow them to become moldy. Dust leaves to maintain their effectiveness and reduce the room’s dust burden.

Reducing indoor air pollutant sources helps to minimize their levels in your home or office to begin with. Use building and decorating products that have no or fewer toxin emissions. Don’t use or store chemicals, solvents, glues or pesticides. Keep your home smoke free. Use exhaust fans in kitchens, baths and laundry areas. And minimize the use of candles and wood fires.

What Your Endocrine System Needs To Protect Your Health

Posted by berlinstreethealthcare on August 9, 2019 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Scientists are calling these chemicals “endocrine disruptors.”

First, though, I want you to know these dangerous substances are in more places than just plastic water bottles.

They’re also found in countless household items like:

Clothes, carpets, cosmetics, furniture, store receipts, and many of the foods you eat — just to name a few.

But wait, how exactly do these “endocrine disruptors” sabotage your health and wreck your waistline?

Well, the way I explain it to my patients is simple...

Your body controls pretty much every process inside you using chemical signals called hormones.

These hormones regulate your metabolism, appetite, energy levels, mood, sleep cycles, and more...

And your body manages these hormones with a special “hormone computer.” (It’s called your endocrine system.)

Now, here’s where things go haywire...

 

Endocrine disruptors have the ability “hack into” your system by DISGUISING themselves as hormones.

When this happens, you stop receiving messages from your REAL hormones...

And start getting messages from these hormone imposters instead!

Once the imposters gain access, WATCH OUT! They quickly start...

Making you hungrier

Slowing your metabolism

Zapping your energy

Attacking your joints

Clouding your thinking

Now the question is, if endocrine disruptors are so bad... why are they being allowed into all of your household products?

Well, this was the exact subject of an INFURIATING report I just read. (It’s also why I’m going to reveal a solution I’ve devised in a moment.)


The report was released on July 1st by The National Coalition Against the Misuse of Pesticides — a D.C.-based consumer safety organization.

 

It detailed how, despite growing evidence about the dangers of endocrine disruptors to the American public… 

The government has knowingly turned a BLIND EYE to these dangers since at least 2009.

And during my research, I discovered a total of 4 proven compounds that can help neutralize these sneaky hormone imposters. 

One in particular goes by the name KSM-66.


KSM-66 is almost impossible to get your hands on these days. It’s the most potent form of an ancient Indian plant extract called ashwagandha.

This plant has been around for centuries. It has an amazing ability to protect the endocrine system. So it can soothe irritated joints, reduce stress, boost mood, and support overall health.

Studies have also linked KSM-66 to improved levels of focus and concentration… along with a slimmer body.1, 2

A Tasty Treat That Helps Your Health

Posted by berlinstreethealthcare on August 2, 2019 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (1)

But first — here’s the quick and easy recipe for my Pear and Sage Olive Oil Snack Cake:

Ingredients (serves 8-12):


FOR THE CAKE:

⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil, divided

2 green pears, peeled and diced

2 Tbsp sage, minced

1 ½ cups blanched almond flour

Zest of 1 orange

1 ½ cups xylitol

2 tsp baking powder

Juice of 3 lemons

4 eggs, beaten (or approved vegan egg substitute equivalent)

½ cup water Instructions:

 


FOR THE SYRUP:

½ cup water

Juice of 2 lemons

4 tablespoons xylitol


1 Grease an 8 inch cake tin with olive oil (ideally a springform pan).

Heat half the olive oil over medium heat, and add pears and sage. Saute until pears are tender and sage is fragrant, then remove from heat and let cool.

In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, pulse the almond flour and orange zest until well combined.

Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir through the xylitol, baking powder, and lemon zest. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, and eggs, and mix until combined.

When cool, add the pear, olive oil, sage mixture to the batter, and fold in until well-combined.

Pour batter into prepared cake pan, then put into a cold oven. Turn oven to 350 degrees, and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Leave in the tin for 5-10 minutes to cool.

While cake is cooling, make the syrup. Gently heat all of the ingredients until the xylitol has dissolved.

Bring to a gentle boil for 5 minutes, allowing the rosemary to infuse.

Pierce holes in the cake and pour the syrup over while still warm.

So… what makes this snack cake so good for you?


Well, aside from being loaded with vitamin C, vitamin K, and fiber (which helps feed your good gut bugs)...


Pears, sage, and orange zest have REALLY high levels of antioxidants… which help destroy the free radicals that cause aging and illness.

 

But what really gives this recipe the “Gundry Stamp of Approval”? It all comes down to its star ingredient: Olive oil!


Olive oil helps to improve brain function, promote weight loss, strengthen the immune system and so much more.

Now here's where epigenetics comes in … certain foods, such as broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and onions contain substances that act as histone inhibitors, which essentially block the histone, allowing your tumor suppressor genes to activate and fight cancer. By regularly consuming these foods, you are naturally supporting your body's ability to fight tumors.



How Celery Juice Helps Heal SIBO

Posted by berlinstreethealthcare on June 4, 2019 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

According to Medical Medium -Anthony Williams

Bacteria can thrive not only in the intestinal tract but also in the stomach for years or even decades when hydrochloric acid levels are low enough; they can even create ulcers in the stomach and scar tissue at the bottom of the esophagus.

Celery Juice annihilates the strep bacteria that causes SIBO. Celery juice contains undiscovered sodium cluster salts that expose and destroy strep, so that over time, SIBO symptoms can improve and heal. Celery juice also helps detoxify and strengthen the liver, which is essential for someone with SIBO, because SIBO goes all the way back to an unsupported liver. It also helps strengthen and increase hydrochloric acid and bile production. Undigested, rotting fats and proteins that have gone rancid in the small intestine make a delicious food for strep and other pathogens, but stronger bile and hydrochloric acid can begin to break these down, so strep has less to thrive on.


Unlike other diets I’ve tried, I didn’t feel great at first & then progressively worse as time goes on. Eating low-fat, whole food, plant-based, & drinking celery juice every morning, I initially felt worse and then started to feel better and better over time. Every few months I wake up & realize another symptom that used to plague me daily is gone, or hasn’t appeared in weeks, often without me even realizing it slipped away. I never could say that for any other diet/lifestyle I tried.

I also heard testimony from Tom who did a month of celery juice and is feeling really good. Now he didn’t get tested for SIBO but his testimony was so exciting that I had to start eating stalks and stalks of celery daily. I will report back on how it is going.
