Dehydration—The Need for More Water

Most seniors (in fact most people) are dehydrated. Our thirst mechanism begins to fade with age. Even people who are seriously dehydrated will not drink water placed near them. I have to consciously drink water myself, and you will, too.

Unintentional dehydration is a plague on the world. Orthodox medicine’s focus is on the solute (solid) body, completely ignoring the solvent (water). Our brain and body consist of 85 percent water. Water is a nutrient and it possesses a dominant metabolic role in all physiological functions of the body.

Most of us are not sick. We are thirsty. The “water cure” is not something the medical establishment is interested in. It is too simple, costs nothing and is available to the whole population. Dehydration is a primary cause of disease but completely overlooked. Or is it just ignored?

Drinking more water—six to eight glasses a day—can do miracles for seniors, and people of all ages.

  • Water suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat.
  • Drinking enough water is the best therapy for fluid retention. To get rid of excess water, drink more water.
  • Overweight people need more water than thin people.
  • Water helps maintain muscle tone and helps to prevent sagging skin.
  • Water helps rid the body of waste. Many seniors are constipated.

And don’t forget to take 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt daily unless you suffer from malignant hypertension. In that case, see your doctor.

Food For Those Overweight!

From Royal Lee, M.D.,: “Eat potatoes instead of bread.” It is good advice for the overweight who are constantly engaged in the battle of the calories. Pound for pound, potatoes furnish about one-third less calories than bread—so we may eat three times as much on a caloric basis. (There are about 100 calories per medium-sized raw potato, which is much less than a serving of spaghetti, pie or cake.) In addition, its superior digestibility and food value as a source of protein, vitamins and minerals make it ideal for reducing the caloric intake without sacrifice of many essential food factors.

The dilemma, now a crisis of obesity, according to Lee, is processed foods. Processed foods are foods we buy prepared and foods that we cook. These are actually incomplete foods because most of what we eat are dead foods that cannot support life in a healthy state.

Virtually the only reliable source of complete food complexes today is found in raw foods. Raw apples, potatoes, vegetables, fruits, raw meats, eggs, unpasteurized raw milk, cream and butter—all are foods which, under present-day circumstances, are as complete as it is possible to obtain. If obesity were attacked with raw foods, not only would the problem be obliterated, but the condition of our nation would improve to the point where we, instead of being the sickest nation on earth, would be the healthiest.

Obesity is a disease of civilization, or better stated, uncivilization. It is the primitive races that are civilized. They eat whole raw foods and they do not have obesity, cancer, diabetes, hardening of the arteries or tooth decay. And they don’t have parasites like the medical establishment and the FDA bothering them. In the so-called civilized world, the system debauches our health and then the “medical establishment” profits from sickness.

Medical Privacy Lost in Stimulus

With the banging of the gavel in the U.S. Senate on the vote for the “Economic Stimulus” bill, your right to medical privacy vanished completely. For hidden in the minutia of the economic boondoggle was a provision to create electronic health records for every U.S. citizen. And under the law you can’t opt out.

This means that people and corporations—including insurance companies and the government—will be electronically linked together to share any information in your health records. This includes the most personal information about you like mental health treatment, surgeries and abortions, as well as whatever complaints you’ve discussed with your physician.

This moves beyond the privacy hit you took when the spuriously named Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule was passed in 1996.

Without the ability to opt out of the database “Americans’ electronic health records could be shared—without their consent—with over 600,000 covered entities through the forthcoming nationally linked electronic health records network,” said Sue A. Blevins, president of the Institute for Health Freedom.

An equally egregious provision in the bill would require your physician to clear with the government any treatments he would prescribe to determine if they are cost-effective based on your health condition and age. Similar laws are in place in the U.K., and seniors or those with serious health problems are often denied treatment for their ailments.

For instance, at one time a person with macular degeneration was required to wait until he is blind in one eye before treatment on the other eye could begin. After a loud hue and cry by the British masses, that particular regulation was changed. But there are other similar ones in existence.

This is what is wrought when Big Brother is in charge. Nothing is private and nothing—not even your own body—is yours.

Two Body Acids—One in Your Stomach and One In Your Cells

Excess of acidity, or acidosis, has two meanings, depending on where the acidosis is. The pharmaceuticals have made billions leading the public to believe that “acid stomach” means we have too much stomach acid. Instead, “acid indigestion” means lack of stomach acid—not too much stomach acid. So we are persuaded, through advertising, to buy acid neutralizers (very high priced calcium tablets under many names). They destroy stomach acid and create digestive problems. The Catch-22 is that these antacids give temporary relief—confusing cause and effect.

Further, there are now super antacid pills (high priced) that actually shut down the acid pump in the stomach for 24 hours. All acid is neutralized giving symptomatic relief, but destroying the digestive capacity of the stomach. If this antacid consumption continues, assimilation of food ceases and stomach cancer eventually occurs. We might think of this tragedy as pharmaceutical chemistry.

Our stomachs are created as acid machines, which is nature’s requirement to digest food and assimilate nutrition. Any violation of this acid balance can lead only to deterioration of general health. I might add that there is a multi-trillion-dollar pharmaceutical industry that gains its profits on the destruction of stomach acid. This is a crime of manipulating people to destroy their health for big pharma profits. They propagandize us to dump calcium in an all-acid functioning stomach. The human stomach was designed to function without alkalinity.

Now where is the second acidosis? This second acidosis has to do with lack of diffusible calcium in the body cells. Lack of diffusible calcium simply means that the body—as opposed to the stomach—is too acidic. We would live less than a minute if our bodies were as acid as our stomach is by nature.

Our body tissues, to be healthy, have to be slightly alkaline or plus or minus 7.2 on the pH scale of 0 to 14. Most people who enter the hospital are low in tissue calcium. Low tissue (cell) calcium means sickness and disease. Adequate calcium in the body is anti-pathogenic.

You remember that in “The Calcium Wave: A Miracle for Me!” (Jan. 9, 2009 Personal Liberty) I revealed how I had discovered a health miracle after taking 3 tablespoons of calcium lactate powder a day in a desperate attempt to cure a long-term sub-clinical infection. In addition to curing my infection, the collateral benefit of taking large amounts of calcium lactate was a total disappearance of all symptoms of “acid indigestion,” or “heartburn.”

I should have known that these symptoms meant that my body tissues were starving for calcium. In other words, I was in a state of acidosis. Since most of our refined food diets are acid, I suspect that most people are in a state of acidosis. Our pH has to balance in favor of alkalinity for there to be health. Are we a sick people?

Death is the end result of the progressive saturation of acid in the body.

Calcium is the body’s main acid buffer. This is precisely why there is a health crisis in America. Here is the formula: Low pH=High Acidosis=Lower Oxygen in the blood and in the cells=more calcium loss (to buffer the acidosis). All the water we drink should be slightly alkaline. Tap water and bottled water are usually acidic. An easy way to correct the acidity of water is to use alkaline supplement drops to make it alkaline. It is a natural way to neutralize acidity and help the body rid itself of acidic wastes.

High acidity levels in the body lead to disease and illness. Most packaged commercial foods and drink contribute to high acidity.

Prostate Cancer—Treatment Do’s and Don’ts

Men who have prostate cancer have autoimmune disease. This means that the body begins to view the prostate as foreign and so the body attacks its own prostate. The prostate specific antigen (PSA) test reveals this self attack or malfunction of nature.

The Random House Unabridged Dictionary (2nd Edition, 1993) defines autoimmune disease as “a disease resulting from a disordered immune reaction in which antibodies are produced against one’s own tissues, as systemic lupus, erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis.” And we add BPH, or benign prostate hypertrophy, possibly leading to prostate cancer.

These are inflammatory diseases and doctors usually treat with immunosuppressive drugs and steroids, and yes, surgery.

So what do we “rational beings” do? Our immune system attacks our prostate and so we attack the prostate also with surgery, radium, androgen-blockage, etc. Yes, medical orthodoxy blocks testosterone production. This is in every way against prostate and cardiovascular health.

It is not our prostate’s fault so why make all out war on it?

Royal Lee, M.D., developed a product that he named Prostate Protomorphogen or Prostate product PMG. This is a uniquely formulated nucleoprotein-mineral that promotes healthy cellular division, function and growth. This product does not attack the prostate but neutralizes the attacking antibodies.

This is not a nutritional product. Its designed function is to stop the immune antibodies from attacking the prostate thereby lowering the PSA.

However the prostate does need specific nutrition such as Cataplex F, Zinc Liver Chelate, Calcium Lactate and Organic Iodine.

Vitamin D protects against prostate cancer. In one study involving 1,029 men with prostate cancer, researchers analyzed the men’s blood looking for several factors including levels of vitamin D. They found that the men with the highest levels of vitamin D had significantly lower overall risk (45 percent) of prostate cancer, including aggressive prostate cancer.
