Syndrome X: The Sugar Disease

All the chronic diseases of aging thread their roots back to sugar consumption. Of all the species, the human race has a very high proclivity to sugar addiction and sugar dependence. Doctors will issue a bag full of prescription drugs and never once say “stay off of all sugar.”

What is sugar? Sugar is any substance that has a glycemic index. Any food or substance that has a glycemic index can disturb insulin balance in the body.

It follows then that the more sugar or carbohydrate consumption, the more insulin balance is disturbed. Any sugar or any food or any substance out of which the body can make sugar directly affects insulin balance.

There are many, many ways to disguise sugar or divert one’s attention from sugar. Most supermarket manufactured foods are loaded with sugar usually in small print. The big diverter, “low fat” or “no fat” is nearly always in bold or set out in a box or different color on the label.

The manufacturers know that the public has been thoroughly programmed against fat consumption. So if they print “no fat,” the customer is drawn to the product most often loaded with sugar.

Sugar is now not only used as a sweetener but as a filler to build volume in “food product.” High fructose corn syrup, a major ingredient, is an extremely sweet filler widely used and deadly to insulin balance.

And would you believe that the only product with no glycemic index is outlawed by the FDA as a sweetener-stevia! Stevia does not disturb insulin but due to FDA regulations, it cannot be marketed as a sweetener, only as a dietary supplement.

Now, let’s talk about just one chronic disease that traces back to sugar consumption. Syndrome X-60 to 75 million Americans have it and according to Dr. Gerald Reaven, M.D., discoverer of Syndrome X, it is the number one predictor of heart disease.

And that good diet prescribed by your cardiologist can be deadly. If you have Syndrome X, carefully dieting to lower your total cholesterol or LDL cholesterol won’t solve your problem. In fact, it may make a heart attack even more likely.

Syndrome X is a very quiet malady that interferes with the ability of insulin to move glucose (sugar) into certain cells for later use. Unknown millions of heart attacks have been caused by the failure of insulin to do its job.

Insulin resistance is at the heart of Syndrome X. This is why simply lowering HDL and LDL cholesterol won’t solve the problem as is universally prescribed by American physicians.

About 25 to 30 percent of Americans are resistant to their own insulin. This means that greater amounts of insulin are required to get the job done. Unfortunately, excess insulin is the first in a series of events to trigger damage to the lining of the coronary arteries that eventually precipitates a heart attack.

Therefore, more carbohydrates (sugar) equals more glucose, equals more insulin, equals the formula for disaster. For each 30 percent elevation in insulin levels, there is a 70 percent increase in risk of heart disease over a five-year period.

Syndrome X or insulin resistance is a cluster of abnormalities that is directly related to heart disease but seems to be unknown to the medical establishment.

According to Dr. Gerald Reaven, M.D., in his book Syndrome X, The Silent Killer, he outlines the complete list of heart disease risk factors for people with Syndrome X.  This list includes known risk factors for heart disease including the risk factors for Syndrome X-important!

Syndrome X Risk Factors:

  • Impaired glucose tolerance.
  • High insulin levels (hyperinsulinemia).
  • Elevated triglycerides (blood fats).
  • Low HDL “good” cholesterol.
  • Slow clearance of fat from the blood (exaggerated postprandial lipemia).
  • Smaller, denser LDL “bad” cholesterol particles.
  • Increased propensity of the blood to form clots.
  • Decreased ability to dissolve blood clots.
  • Elevated blood pressure.

Lifestyle factors that worsen Syndrome X:

  • Obesity
  • Lack of physical activity
  • The wrong diet
  • Cigarette smoking
  • High intake of sugar/carbohydrates

The additional independent risk factor is higher than normal LDL cholesterol.

Notice the differences. The Syndrome X heart disease risk factor list includes the rate at which fat clears from the blood, not just the amount of fat in the blood. It also considers the formation and clearance of blood clots, and the physical characteristics of LDL cholesterol (not just the amount). The very important lifestyle factor mentioned above is high consumption of sugar or carbohydrates.

Heart attacks are two to three times more likely to happen after a high carbohydrate meal and are specifically NOT likely after a high-fat meal. Why? Because the immediate effect of raising blood sugar from sugar or a high carbohydrate meal is a rise in insulin. This causes arterial spasm and constriction of the arteries triggering heart attacks.

Substitute stevia for sugar as much as you can. Too much sugar consumption leads to the body’s overproduction of insulin. This is the basis of the chronic disease of aging and Syndrome X.

Ignorance of sugar guarantees more and more degenerative disease, oppression, and more murder and suffering at the hands of government, the pharmaceutical and medical cartels. Ignorance of sugar is the absolute foundation of economic collapse nationally and financial poverty individually. Ignorance of sugar is at the root of social breakdown and a drugged society, broken homes and the forcing of drugs on school children.

The sugar disease is the biochemical basis of all degenerative disease, especially heart disease, cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Why are we not being told about sugar? Because it would mean far better and widespread health and happiness, and therefore far less trillions of dollars flowing to the medical monopoly.

Sugar is America’s number one addiction, beginning with little babies. May God liberate us from this curse that plagues the world but most especially Americans.

Thomas Jefferson

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Thomas Jefferson, Letter to the Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin (1802)
3rd president of US (1743 – 1826)

Bob on the Economic Bailout

Actually the government doesn’t bail anybody out. They simply create credit and make it available to those on the inside. Unknown completely to the American people, every "bailout" cost every dollar holder because it dilutes their dollars and the result is reduced purchasing power. They steal trillions of dollars this way and they will finally reduce the middle class in the US to poverty.

There is plenty of precedent and history. It happened in Germany in 1923 and ruined most of the German people. Only those who bought gold and foreign currencies preserved their savings.

— Bob

Gold Confiscation

I believe that the government could try to confiscate gold at any time. They can make up a reason and the people will believe what they are told. I think that the ETFS were set up to confiscate. This is the perfect scheme for a huge catch of gold for the government to take all at once. Its too tempting when things get really bad with paper money.

Remember, there is a vast difference in the thinking of the people who own gold and the people who don’t. The people who own gold don’t trust the system as others do. They are not likely to give up their gold so easy as they did NOT in 1933. So the goverment mostly got the gold held in the banks in safety deposit boxes.

For survival, everyone needs some silver coins dated thru 1964 which are still legal tender and will have great exchange value in the collapse of paper money. This is everyday money to buy food and small items of necessity.

Quick Health Tip: Drink More Water!

75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated. In 35 percent of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Most of the time when we are eating, we should be drinking water—even more so as we get older.

Even mild dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 3 percent. One glass of water shuts down hunger pains.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. Research indicates that 8 to 10 glasses of water a day can significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80 percent of sufferers.

8 to 10 glasses of water a day will reduce the risk of colon cancer, breast cancer and bladder cancer.

Trillions For Disease, Not A Penny For Health

Modern medicine has one purpose—to make money for the pharmaceuticals and their army of “trained practitioners.”

If anybody in America wants serious health attention, they have to take responsibility, pursue alternatives and pay for it out of their own pocket.

I will quickly give you a valid exception and that is if one needs trauma care. It is generally and quickly available and most of the time life-saving. But this is a very small part of medical practice in America.

In fact, there is now very high risk in going to the hospital. Besides the hundreds of thousands of drug-induced deaths (iatrogenic deaths), there are people who check into hospitals and unexpectedly die of viral pneumonia that antibiotics can’t help.  Tuberculosis has returned to America along with drug-resistant strains. Even what appears to be the old common cold is lasting for months.

Doesn’t all this make us worry that a killer flu such as that which wiped out 20 million people in 1919 could return?

Old, old infections are laughing at our modern multi-trillion dollar medical empire.

The first premise of modern medicine is to avoid simplicity and cheap health solutions. Boy, have they ever done this. They have succeeded in leading the sick public to feel helpless and hopeless in taking responsibility for their own health.  They have successfully destroyed what used to be just common sense. Old home remedies passed down for generations and old country doctors’ simple therapies have all been erased for life-threatening trips to the hospital and thousands of drugs.

We are the victims. It’s our bodies they “practice” on. We are literally a prescription drug culture.

What to do?

I will not debate for human immortality, but I do believe that we can live to age 100+ assuming we desert the medical establishment in favor of common sense and simplicity.

I will risk repetition, but for the sake of all I will give you an outline that you can yourself prove or disprove and I apologize for the simplicity and the low cost. Our greatest challenge is to believe and act now. Once we go to the hospital or clinic, we are at the mercy of the system.

The health of man, woman or child is all about acid/alkaline balance. If we are too acid, we are sick. It can’t be any more simple than this. If we get totally acid, we are dead.

Dr. George W. Crile, a great surgeon said, “There is no natural death. All deaths from so-called natural causes are merely the endpoint of a progressive acid saturation.”

What do we do? Balance acid/alkaline pH slightly in favor of alkalinity. Is this simple?  Yes, it is! Will doctors tell you this? No, because it’s too simple and most of them don’t know about it.

Any form of illness indicates a disturbed state of body chemistry—generally an acid state. In fact, over acidity is common to all degenerative diseases. As stated above, death is 100 percent acidity!

Viruses love acid! They feast on acid. Sickness is defeated and health is restored by rebuilding alkaline reserve, not with sugar-laced fruit juices or soft drinks but with fresh, raw vegetables, carrot juice and alkaline water.

Sugar and sugar products and artificial sweeteners (except Stevia) are highly acid and negative to health. In fact, most commercial foods are acid or acid forming. No wonder we are sick!

The more imbalanced we become, mentally, emotionally and physically, the more susceptible we are to viral infections.

Viruses, fungus or bacteria in the body can only survive in an acid environment. Any kind of infection at all will thrive in an acid body.

Dr. Max Gerson saved many “terminal” cancer patients primarily with fresh raw carrot juice. What did he know? He knew to quickly realkalize their bodies in order to restore their health. He knew that carrot juice would correct their terminal acid condition. Carrot juice is established as a rapid alkalizer and any amount can be consumed. Dr. Max Gerson used eight glasses a day of freshly prepared carrot juice for each cancer patient.

Carrot juice for children has the greatest value because it supplies vitamin A so necessary for growth and vitality. It is as excellent a source of calcium as milk. A lot of carrot vitamin A is wonderful for preventing infections.

Now to The Chemistry of Alkalinity:

When we alkalize our bodies, we at the same time oxygenate and detoxify. This is saying that oxygenation and detoxification is caused by and follows alkalization.

Now you can see that alkalization with alkaline water and alkaline foods causes oxygenation and detoxification of the body leading to the suppression of disease and the restoration of health. Bacteria, virus, cancer and fungus cannot live in an alkaline and oxygenated environment.

The process of aging and disease is the accumulation of waste within our body.  These wastes are acid. The constant consumption of alkaline water flushes out acidic waste. Mr. Sang Whang in his book called this “reverse aging.” Is this not simple?

So now we have added toxic waste removal to realkalization along with oxygenation and detoxification. This is a very powerful healing concept coupled with reverse aging.

Most young people are alkaline or should be. Aging always comes with increasing acidosis and acid coagulates blood. Then do we need blood thinner? No, we need to alkalize our body. More acid waste accumulation as we age means less oxygen.  Therefore realkalizing means an increase of oxygen. Heart disease is a problem of oxygen shortage. Heart patients need to alkalize with alkaline foods and alkaline water. More oxygen means a healthier heart.

No disease can be cured without the removal of acid waste from our bodies. No one can reverse aging without the removal of acid waste and maintaining a pH balance slightly alkaline. We do this with alkaline foods and alkaline water.

All drugs accumulate as acid waste in the body. Any serious treatment for anything involves the removal of acid waste.

The Growth of Cancer Cells:

A German biochemist, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered the cause of cancer in 1923 and he received the 1931 Nobel Prize for doing so. In his book, The Metabolism of Tumors, Dr. Warburg demonstrated that the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory chemistry of normal cells by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is a fermentation process which is initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen. Of course, realkalizing restores the oxygen and stops the fermentation process and the cancer. What could be simpler and cheaper?

When we drink alkaline water, we are drinking water with excess oxygen, not in the form of O2, but in the form of OH which is very stable because it is mated with positively ionized alkaline minerals. The alkaline mineral is used to detoxify poisonous acid compounds.

The cause of all cancer is a lack of oxygen caused by the accumulation of waste. So even if cancer surgery is a success, tumors will reoccur because the acid environment has not been changed. Since healthy cells are alkaline and malignant cells are acidic, drinking alkaline water will not harm healthy cells while it may destroy malignant cells.

Acidosis and High Blood Pressure:

Dr. Kancho Kuninaka, one of the pioneers of alkaline water treatment in Japan, states that virtually without exception, patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. He has many successful clinical cases where the acid-free high pH alkaline water lowered blood pressure over several months.

Since the alkaline or higher pH blood contains excess oxygen, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard. Another factor may be that the viscosity of the higher alkaline pH blood is low so that the heart does not need to pump as hard.

Soft Drinks are Slow Killers. You Think Iraq is Bad, Listen to This!

Sugar grabs oxygen with the highest priority. Most commercial foods are full of sugar. Soft drinks are not soft. They are hard killers. They’re highly acid with an average pH of 2.5. That much acid will dissolve anything. Younger people are becoming highly acidic and are being hit by so-called adult diseases. There are no warnings on the containers. Where is the FDA?

Higher alkalization means more oxygen and more oxygen signifies higher immunity.  Is this simple? This makes inoculations nonsense!

Alkaline water will dissolve acid waste much quicker because of the higher pH.

Diabetes: Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been clinically treating diabetes quite successfully using alkaline water with only one month’s use of alkaline water. The sugar count (on a 49-year-old insurance company employee) came down to virtually an undetectable level from 300 mg per day one month previously.

So aging, disease and acid waste accumulation are the same thing. When we are born we have the highest alkaline mineral concentration and also the highest body pH. From then on the normal process of life is progressive acidification. At death we are 100 percent acid.

Therefore, reverse aging is the process of discharging old accumulated waste.

Summary: If alkaline water is essential to restoration and maintenance of health, what about the seemingly contradictory meaning of stomach acid with a pH of +/- 3 (very acid)? Hydrochloric acid is the only normal acid in the human body and it is specific to the stomach alone as separate from the rest of the body.

Proper hydrochloric acid in the stomach is as necessary as alkalizing the rest of the body. Perfect health requires both and in proper balance.

Normal hydrochloric acid in the stomach is necessary for complete healthy digestion.  The deficiency of this acid leads to general toxemia all over the body and degenerative forms of disease usually appear. Here again, stomach acid goes down with age, not up as the anti-acid industry would have us to believe.

Lack of hydrochloric acid (HCl) underlies all nutritional deficiencies.

Therefore, correct stomach HCl contributes to correct alkalinity in the rest of the body and when the two are in harmony, we have perfect health.

Your Answers for Chelation Therapy

We get more questions on chelation therapy than most any other nutrient or protocol.

In short, chelation therapy was created by the Germans in the early 1930s to remove heavy metals. It is approved by the FDA to remove heavy metals. It is not approved to remove calcium plaque from the arteries. The FDA will never approve EDTA chelation therapy for cardiovascular disease simply because they will not jeopardize the heart surgery industry, a multibillion dollar medical monopoly.

The American Medical Association (AMA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) all publicly state that EDTA therapy is “the treatment of choice to remove toxic metals from the body. Toxic metal accumulation is directly related to heart disease.”

Chelation works on the whole body whereas bypass surgery only bypasses a few inches of heart arteries.

Just the benefit of lead removal is of tremendous benefit to the heart, the kidneys and the nervous system. Heavy metal toxicity is a big factor in causing immune system compromise.

If someone says to you that there are no studies on chelation therapy, your response should be that blinded studies were never required by the FDA to determine the effectiveness of bypass surgery, angioplasty or stints.

The focus of EDTA chelation therapy is on helping vascular conditions related to restricted blood flow due to atherosclerotic plaque.

But there are many other benefits traceable to treatment with EDTA chelation:

  • Reduction of liver-produced cholesterol.
  • Lowered insulin requirements in diabetics.
  • Reduced high blood pressure.
  • Normalization of cardiac arrhythmias.
  • Relief from leg muscle cramps.
  • Reduction in allergic symptoms.
  • Normalized weight.
  • Improved psychological and emotional status.
  • Enhanced sensory input:  better sight, hearing and taste.
  • Reversal of impotence.
  • Cold extremities warmed.

In Heart Disease: Heavy metal toxins disrupt neurological pathways.

Our polluted environment poisons the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat with heavy metals including lead, cadmium, iron, copper, mercury and aluminum. Add to this vascular assault the buildup of plaque in our arteries and EDTA chelation therapy is the only treatment of choice to restore vascular health.

Who says so? The AMA, FDA and CDC. Licensed doctors, from first year interns to professors of medicine at Harvard University, as well as many prestigious medical centers, all confirm that EDTA chelation therapy is the only viable choice for the removal of toxic metals from the body.

Removal of toxic metals and calcium plaque from the human vascular system directly and positively affects the restoration of cardiovascular health. It’s a life saver!

There is no doubt about the efficacy of chelation therapy (IV or oral) for cardiovascular health. There is new excitement about chelation for kidney disease.  Just some of the many books written on chelation are: The Chelation Way, by Morton Walker; Forty Something Forever, by Harold Brecher; Bypassing Bypass Surgery, by Elmer M. Cranton, M.D.; A Textbook on EDTA Chelation, by Elmer M. Cranton, M.D.; and Questions From the Heart, by Terry Chappell, M.D.

Finally, there is a mountain of evidence to support EDTA chelation. People who read the books and literature know that chelation is a miracle in restoring vascular health all over the body and brain. Chelation must be taken over a few years for maximum benefit. It should be taken as a preventive as well as for the removal of plaque after it has accumulated. 

Pharmaceuticals Are Not People Friendly—Only Patent & Profit Friendly

Patent “medicines” are one of the greatest deceptions of our time. They are products of advertising—very sophisticated and expensive advertising.

What do patent medicines do for their buyers? They are palliatives that suppress symptoms. They do nothing to “cure” or in any way enhance the immune system.  Nor do they make any claims as such, but the public misses this vital point.

The federal government, through the FDA, has now unleashed the pharmaceuticals upon the American people resulting in massive and unbelievable profits. The American people don’t have a dog’s chance in hell against this monstrous and deceptive fraud. What a scam! What a cash cow!

How much will their profits be when they get Medicare to pay for this worthless crap?  Americans spend more than $200 billion per year now, before Medicare takes over. This is more than the federal government pays for education, agriculture, transportation and the environment combined.

What happened to the “war on drugs?” Well, what happened is that the war on “illegal” drugs was, is and will be a spurious issue designed as a decoy for legal drugs—get the picture?

The medical establishment, through massive advertising (propaganda), has for 50 years prepared the public for what we see happening now.

The trigger that unleashed the flood of drugs upon the public happened in 1997 when the FDA relaxed the rules for drug advertising direct to the consumer.

The new FDA rules allowed the drug companies to make claims unimpeded as long as they offered a phone number or website or referenced a magazine ad where consumers could get the “fine print.” The FDA knows as well as you do that people don’t read the “fine print” and most don’t read at all except a few words at a time.  The public is helpless before this charade as if they are little children.

Welcome to the “purple pill”, a dangerous palliative for heartburn that netted $5 billion last year under an advertising blitz. This puts Priolosec® (Nexium®), the purple pill, second only to Lipitor®, another medical scam, in sales.

AstraZeneca, the maker of the purple pill, puts on real advertising productions that make Hollywood blush. The advertising leads the viewing audience to believe that the purple pill strips misery from the lives of millions. Even General Motors alone spent $55 million on the purple pill for its workers last year.

The scam continues as patents expire by changing the name of the drug.

What do they not tell? The purple pill (Prilosec®) was the first proton pump inhibitor.  This means that it shuts down stomach acid production and eventually maybe even your life with stomach cancer. The purple pill became the first drug ever to hit $5 billion in sales. As the patent runs out, Prilosec® cloned itself with the launch of Nexium®. We’re talking profits and patents big time. Research started on Prilosec®, the purple pill in the 1960s. These people know what they are after.

Most people ignore that heartburn is an important clue from their body that something is fundamentally wrong and so they rely on a drug to suppress the symptoms.

Millions of people suffer from Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD). It occurs when acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus. Some people experience it frequently and severely.

The human stomach is an acid-producing machine and this acid is needed in the stomach for health. When stomach acid is cut off as with the purple pill, it greatly diminishes our primary defense mechanism against food borne infections and even degenerative disease, as cancer. Stomach acid is essential to digestion and digestion is basic to health.

And logically, the very group of people who lack stomach acid­—age 55 and up—is the group most often suffering from GERD or acid reflux.

So this is to say that one can have acid reflux and at the same time have low stomach acid. It’s where the acid is that leads us to believe that we have too much acid when we actually don’t. Yes, pharmaceuticals know this only too well.

Now just why does acid reflux on the one hand and low stomach acid on the other cause such a problem with seniors?

The answer is that as we age, our biochemistry changes producing weaker signals for thirst and dehydration. Less hydration naturally expands the effect of stomach acid when it refluxes. We naturally yield to the hawkers of antacids and thereby compound our troubles.

Normal stomach acid is the chief factor in the elimination of waste and toxins. It cannot be overemphasized how important hydrochloric acid is in the gastric fluid.

When stomach hydrochloric acid is deficient or absent, grave results will gradually and inevitably appear in the human metabolism.

First of all, we will have an increasing and gradual starvation of minerals. Food is incompletely digested and failure of assimilation will occur. Then the septic process begins with all manner of general infections such as flu and pneumonia. Deficiency of normal stomach acid gives rise to a multitude of degenerative reactions and degenerative disease.

Because of the lack of hydrochloric stomach acid, a putrefactive (decaying) process occurs producing lactic acid. All the more hydrochloric acid is needed to neutralize other toxic acids as hydrochloric acid is the only normal acid in the human or animal body.

It is very serious to stop the acid pump with the purple pill. Instead we need to make doubly sure that we have adequate stomach acid.

Adequate stomach acid is more than essential. It is vital to immunity and longevity.

This leaves us with the problem of acid reflux, especially with seniors.

What to do: Since it is doubtful that few have too much stomach acid, it is certain that too many don’t have enough.

  • Take hydrochloric acid supplements, such as Betaine Hydrochloride, with meals—some use apple cider vinegar.
  • Drink adequate amounts of clean, preferably distilled water, up to a gallon a day; even more if you can—you have to build up.
  • Get on a low carbohydrate diet especially eliminating sugar. Use Stevia, which has no glycemic index, as an alterative to sugar.
  • Use an unsweetened yogurt or buttermilk for a probiotic, or buttermilk.
  • Avoid highly seasoned foods especially at night.
  • Stay off of all antacids—instead use calcium lactate powder in some water.
