Channeling The Powers Of Nature: An Interview With A Naturopath

Published

on

Robert Bailie first became interested in Naturopathy while managing the occupational health and safety and rehabilitation department of a large corporation in Australia. He noticed that injured employees enjoyed a quicker recuperation period, and therefore an earlier return to normal duties when they underwent Naturopathic treatment. While carrying out a course in Naturopathic studies in Sydney in 1996, he discovered, and quickly also became fascinated with the science of Homoeopathy. Here Robert uncovers the history and secrets of these ancient forms of alternative healing:

What exactly is Naturopathy and Homeopathy?

Naturopathy is a complete system of western natural medicine; it includes the use of Botanic Medicine, Nutrition, Homeopathy and manipulative techniques. It is a holistic system in that it addresses the person as a whole –physical, mental and emotional. It is often termed ‘preventative medicine’ because of its ability to assess a propensity to disease, thereby preventing its manifestation. Naturopathy addresses a person’s health through extensive investigation into lifestyle, nutrition and medical history, and provides healing therapies and detoxification techniques accordingly. Diagnostic methods include iridology or naturopathic diagnostics of nails, skin or tongue, as well as conventional diagnostic methods such as lab tests or ultrasounds.

Homeopathy is a system of vibrational medicine, its medicines are diluted far beyond molecular existence but retain the imagesenergetic aspects of the original substance. It therefore has an energetic effect on the organism which in turn has physical, emotional and mental balancing effects. It is a system based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ or that a potentized substance which causes a set of symptoms in a healthy individual, can cure similar symptoms in a sick person. It is a process of symptom matching remedy to disease state –mental, emotional or physical. Limited doses of the remedy are given in order to stimulate the inherent healing powers of the organism and this is followed by a period of improvement often leading to cure. The ideal of Homeopathy is to achieve rapid cure in the most harmless and effective way.

 

What is the history of these specific forms of medicine and how do their modern day practices differ from the original?

HippocratesNaturopathy, like herbalism, has been developing since the beginning of time for man on earth. Ancient manuscripts on natural therapy are found in every major archeological excavation site. Hippocrates (460BC) is considered the father of Naturopathy. He described and taught the very principles still applied by modern Naturopaths such as “let food be your medicine,” and he relied on the healing powers of nature. Aesculapius was the first to utilize toxic substances for treating disease and therefore is considered the father of modern pharmaceutical medicine. Naturopathy has evolved from those days, and today has set standards for education and training and is very much grounded in modern science.

Samuel HahnemannHomeopathy was discovered by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). He became disillusioned with the toxic medical practices of his day and resigned to the translation of medical/pharmacological texts when he discovered the law of ‘like cure like.’ He firstly experimented on himself with Cinchona bark which was used to treat malaria and found that it caused malaria type symptoms to him. He then experimented on his peers with diluted remedies to avoid toxic effects and gradually discovered that potentization of diluted substances caused them to gain in therapeutic effect while eliminating toxic effects. Hahnemann published the Organon of Medicine which outlines the principles and practice of Homeopathy. This same treatise remains the most important treatment manual for Homeopaths to this day.

Naturopathy has been described as a pseudoscience. What are your opinions on this label? And where is the proof that Naturopathic and Homeopathic medicines work?

Naturopaths are trained in Anatomy/Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Symptomatology, Diagnosis and Pathology. Are these not sciences? Herbs have been studied for many years and so have vitamins and minerals and science has acknowledged and confirmed the physiological effects of these Naturopathic medicines. In our modern age of information it is very simple to find clinical studies on herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies. The European Commission has gone so far as to regulate the supply of herbs, vitamins and Homeopathic remedies. Science is about the constant discovery and study of our environment, it is progressive, and if certain healing techniques are not currently understood, they most definitely will be in the future. The greatest proof of efficacy for Naturopathy and Homeopathy is the increased popularity they enjoy worldwide.

 

How do people benefit by using Naturopathic and Homeopathic remedies over more widely accepted western medicines?

All real natural healing techniques work in the same direction; they address the causes of illness, and employ methods to support the organism so as to stimulate its own healing capabilities. Symptoms are just the manifestation of disease; they are the way an imbalanced organism expresses itself in an attempt to heal itself. Symptoms are never suppressed in alternative medicine. Natural medicine has no side effects or toxicity. Pharmaceutical medicine on the other hand is mostly based on suppression of symptoms, thereby creating chronic illness and dependency. Just look at the accompanying leaflet in your prescription medication, which lists some of the usual side effects.

 

Are the remedies always specialized to directly deal with specific conditions, or are there any general well-being remedies that you would recommend for general daily use?

In Naturopathy treatment protocols are individualized for every patient. Treatment is based on the requirements of the organism as a whole, although specific herbs or supplements are also used to ‘target’ a particular ailment. In Homeopathy there are very specific remedies for acute illness or acute exacerbations of a chronic disease which afford quick relief or treatment. These are always based on the similarity of symptoms and remedy. This is called ’acute prescribing.’ However, I believe, the greatest expression of Homeopathy lies in ‘constitutional prescribing’ based on personality types. These latter remedies have a general as well as local effect but serve to tone up the entire organism, boost immunity, balance emotions and bring a state of wellness.

I would recommend a daily dose of 1000mg vitamin C for all adults; children have less – 250mg to 500mg. The virtues of vitamin C are way too many to list here – antioxidant, immune boosting and connective tissue integrity to name a few. I would also recommend a glass of warm water with the juice of 1/2 a lemon (or 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar) first thing in the morning. This has a great cleansing effect throughout the body. A carrot juice a day is better than any multivitamin or mineral, especially if juiced with celery, beetroot and a bit of fresh ginger!

Can Naturopathy and Homeopathy help with conditions that are considered long term such as cancers or Thyroid imbalances or mental illness?

Both Naturopathy and Homeopathy are especially useful in the management of chronic disease. This is the area where these systems excel. I usually employ Homeopathy for all sorts of mental illness and it is always easier if patients are not medicated, however, most are. Thyroid imbalances usually come along fine in time, and symptoms are regulated very quickly with Homeopathic remedies. The treatment of patients with cancer requires a comprehensive treatment protocol including herbs, mega doses of vitamins-antioxidants, Homeopathy, nutrition and other more specialized minerals and treatments. No matter what stages a disease has progressed, it is always possible to afford relief, lessen the suffering and increase quality of life. I think the only condition that can not be treated is narrow mindedness.

Do these forms of medication work on a long-term basis treating a problem so it will not return, or are they more quick short-term fixes?

Benefits from treatment occur quite early, however certain conditions do require many months of treatment to fully balance out, if they ever will. So I will certainly provide a quick fix to alleviate the suffering while working towards complete cure in time.

How much do external influences such as lifestyle, diet or fitness influence the effectiveness of Naturopathic or Homeopathic remedies? vitamins

Lifestyle, diet and fitness are crucial to a positive outcome and these are dealt with in great detail especially in Naturopathy.

Can people make their own Naturopathic or Homeopathic remedies or medicines?

People can make their own home natural remedies and Naturopathy seeks to encourage and train the patient to do so. Homoeopathic remedies are not usually made at home and should only be prescribed by a qualified practitioner.

Do you believe that Naturopathy and Homeopathy can be as effective as or even more effective than Western Medicines?

herbs-spicesAs a practitioner, I have always sought to provide my patients with the best advice as to their choice of treatment and that includes pharmaceuticals and surgery. Certain conditions require pharmaceutical drugs; there is no question about that. For example insulin dependent diabetics need their insulin even though we may achieve a reduction in its requirement and delay the onset of the disease using natural methods. People that have had their Thyroid Glands destroyed or removed will always need Thyroxine. I have never rejected a treatment that is effective and reasonably safe and in the best interests of my patient even if it comes from the medical world. Having said that, and with complete respect to medical practitioners, their knowledge and training, I think that pharmaceutical medicine has largely been a failure in the treatment of chronic disease. I think that while surgery has advanced greatly, pharmaceutical medicine has not kept up with scientific developments. After 15 years of practice in Naturopathy and Homeopathy, I know that natural medicine is highly effective, safe, ethical and affordable in the treatment of chronic disease.

Cancer-Linked Monsanto Chemical Discovered In Five Major Orange Juice Brands

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The non profit group Moms Across America discovered glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, in popular orange juice brands across America.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is glyphosate ending up in our food? What kind of safety testing is our food going through? Why is Roundup legal in North America yet Illegal in so many other countries? Why are these findings not presented on mainstream media?

It’s confusing why non-profits spend so much time and resources on raising money and awareness for cancer research, but completely leave out the links between cancer and harmful pesticides, heavy metals, processed meats, electromagnetic radiation, various cleaning and cosmetic products,  as well as several other cancer-causing sources. All we do is try to raise money, and yet in doing so, we pay no attention to the causes.

If you have ever walked, ran, ridden, played a sport, or grown a moustache in support of large corporate-sponsored efforts to cure cancer, you are to be sincerely commended for your time, your effort, and your concern for your fellow human beings. Just know that such efforts have likely not—and will never—contribute to finding a cure for cancer.

Western cancer research is organized as a business whose fundamental motivation is profit, and has become the subject of numerous excellent books and documentaries, among them being Forest Gamble’s Thrive and Ty Bollinger’s The Truth About Cancer. Western medicine will likely never cure cancer because it’s so profitable, and it’s sad that they often ignore the causes of it. Doctors are only allowed to recommend the patented treatment.

One cause of cancer, among several other diseases, is glyphosate, the main active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. In November 2012, the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology published a paper titled Long Term Toxicity of Roundup Herbicide and a Roundup-Tolerant genetically modified maize by Gilles-Eric Séralini and his team of researchers at France’s Caen University (source). It was a very significant study that made a lot of noise worldwide, as it was the first of its kind under controlled conditions that examined the possible effects of a GMO maize diet treated with Monsanto’s Roundup Herbicide. The rats studied developed cancer, but the study was retracted and then republished in several journals across the world, but the original retraction caused hundreds of scientists to sign a letter in support of the study. It’s one of many examples that highlights how corporations control science and brush the important research that threatens their interests straight under the rug. You can read more about that particular study here.

In fact, I also recently published an article on Robert F. Kennedy explaining how our federal regulatory agencies have been completely compromised by these big corporations. You can watch that video and read about some more examples here.

There is a wealth of science showing how harmful glyphosate is to human health as well as the environment. This is why it’s completely banned in dozens of countries, as they’ve cited numerous health and environmental concerns. It’s quite clear that it’s not safe, and this isn’t really debatable.

advertisement - learn more

In fact, EU regulators recently decided to relicense glyphosate, and their decision was based on an assessment that was plagiarized from industry reports. It’s quite backwards that, for years, health regulators have been relying on the scientific reports from the companies that manufacture these products instead of seeking out independent scientific studies. A group of MEPs decided to commission an investigation into claims that Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (bFr) copy-and-pasted tracts from Monsanto studies. You can read more about that here.

The only science showing that glyphosate is safe is the science that’s dished out by the manufacturers and shareholders themselves, which is in stark opposition to all independent science as well as the science coming from foreign countries.

Corporations can’t be trusted these days, unfortunately, and neither can our federal regulatory agencies. This is why ordinary people are turning towards organizations that don’t stand to benefit or gain from these products and are completely non-profit, citizenry-driven organizations like Moms Across America.

Moms Across America is a National Coalition of Unstoppable Moms. Their motto is “Empowered Moms, Healthy Kids.” Their mission is  to “raise awareness about toxic exposure, empower leadership, and create healthy communities. We support local activities, initiate campaigns and share solutions nationwide to improve our health and freedoms.”

Glyphosate & Orange Juice

They are the group who took initiative and discovered that glyphosate is found inside of all 5 major orange juice brands across the United States. These juices are heavily marketed as ‘100 percent pure orange juice,’ but that’s not true as they’re loaded with unhealthy amounts of added sugars.

What is glyphosate doing in orange juice? Glyphosate is the active chemical ingredient in Roundup, manufactured by Monsanto, and 750 other brands of glyphosate-based herbicides. Roundup is the most widely used herbicide in the world, often sprayed as a weedkiller between citrus trees and found in irrigation water and rain.

Moms Across America founder Zen Honeycutt stated, “The discovery of glyphosate residue in orange juice is unacceptable, especially since a branch of the World Health Organization designated glyphosate a probable carcinogen, two years ago, back in the spring of 2015. The EPA has had ample time to revoke the license of this chemical and restrict its use in our food and beverage crops. As confirmed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, our children (who frequently drink orange juice for breakfast) are especially vulnerable to pesticides and measures should be taken immediately to protect them.”

Two samples of each of the following brands were tested for both the herbicide glyphosate and its residue AMPA. Positive results ranged from 4.33 parts per billion (“ppb”) to an alarming 26.05 ppb. Chemical farming proponents will claim that these levels are too low to cause harm, and are definitely lower than the EPA’s allowable glyphosate residue level of 30 ppm on citrus, but these claims are irrelevant in comparison to new data. Studies have shown that only 0.1 ppm (100ppb) of glyphosate destroys beneficial gut bacteria, weakening the immune system, which can lead to a wide variety of health and neurological issues. Considering the standard American diet is high in wheat, sugar, oatmeal, soy, and corn, with levels of up to 6000 ppb or 1.67ppm detected,  a child can easily exceed the 100 ppb if a glass of orange juice is added at  26 ppb. Additionally, 1 part per trillion (ppt) has been shown to stimulate the growth of breast cancer cells. 1 ppt is equivalent to 1 drop in the water of 22 olympic swimming pools combined. Considering that studies show glyphosate bioaccumulates in bone marrow, any amount ingested is unacceptable.

Below is a chart of the brands that were tested as well as the results.

The full report can be seen here. The testing methodology was “Glyphosate and AMPA Detection by UPLC-MS/MS.”

The Health Research Institute Laboratories routinely undergoes independent, third party proficiency testing of its methods. The lab is also certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments act of 1988 (CLIA-88) to perform high complexity clinical testing.

The Takeaway

“It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions.” – R. Mesnage (et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014 (2014), article ID 179691)

The only takeaway here is for one to be aware of and share this information, and to vote with your dollar. Don’t get your lawn sprayed with Roundup. Instead, seek out alternatives and don’t buy conventional food. Try and switch to organic and non-GMO products.

At the end of the day, human beings are the source of these corporations’ profits. We must educate ourselves and seek out information independently.

How To Activate Autophagy: Your Body’s Self-Cleansing System

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Autophagy, the body's self-cleaning system, allows the cell to get rid of old cell machinery, breaking them down into smaller parts to be reused by the cell. Activating autophagy through fasting has neuroprotective and immuno-regenerative benefits.

  • Reflect On:

    Intermittent fasting (IF) is an easy and sustainable way to activate autophagy as well as reap many other health benefits. The easiest way to IF is to pick an eating window that is eight hours or less every day that works best with your schedule.

 

The fountain of youth has long been sought by man, science being the critical avenue in which we’ve explored this prospect, and one Nobel Prize-winning scientist recently uncovered a vital piece in the search.

On October 3rd, 2016, the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Yoshinori Ohsumi for his discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy, a term that translates to “self-eat.” In short, autophagy is the body’s self-cleaning system, a mechanism in which cells get rid of all the broken down, old cell machinery (organelles, proteins and cell membranes). It is a regulated, orderly process to degrade and recycle cellular components.

The process of autophagy is like replacing parts in a car—sometimes we need a new engine or battery for the car to function better. The same thing happens within each of our cells. During autophagy, old cellular debris is sent to specialized compartments within the cell called “lysosomes.” Lysosomes contain enzymes that degrade the old debris, breaking it down into smaller components to be reused again by the cell.

Fasting & Autophagy

Scientists have found that fasting for 12 to 24+ hours triggers autophagy, which is thought to be one of the reasons that fasting is associated with longevity. There is a large body of research that connects fasting to improved blood sugar control, reduced inflammation, weight loss, and improved brain function, and Oshumi’s findings provide greater insight into this research.

“Sporadic short-term fasting, driven by religious and spiritual beliefs, is common to many cultures and has been practiced for millennia, but scientific analyses of the consequences of caloric restriction are more recent…short-term food restriction induces a dramatic upregulation of autophagy in cortical and Purkinje neurons. As noted above, disruption of autophagy can cause neurodegenerative disease, and the converse also may hold true: upregulation of autophagy may have a neuroprotective effect.

Food restriction is a simple, reliable, inexpensive and harmless alternative to drug ingestion and, therefore, we propose that short-term food restriction may represent an attractive alternative to the prophylaxis and treatment of diseases in which candidate drugs are currently being sought.”

So autophagy and fasting is in essence a form of self-cleansing, getting rid of the junk to make room for new healthy cellular components. And it is the accumulation of the junk that may be responsible for many of the effects of aging. The consequences of accumulating old proteins all over the place can be seen in two main conditions – Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and cancer. Alzheimer’s Disease involves the accumulation of abnormal protein – either amyloid beta or Tau protein, which gum up the brain system. So, if inducing autophagy cleanses the body of denatured proteins, it would make sense that the process has the ability to prevent the development of AD.

Other Benefits of Fasting—Stem Cell Regeneration

While inducing autophagy is one of the key benefits to fasting, there are also many incredible longevity-related reasons to fast.

A study in the journal Cell Stem Cell shows that cycles of prolonged fasting not only protect against immune system damage but also induce immune system regeneration, shifting stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self-renewal.

Fasting triggers regeneration of immune stem cels.

In a study on mice and a Phase 1 human clinical trial involving patients receiving chemotherapy, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles “flipped a regenerative switch,” changing the signalling pathways for liver stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems. Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose, fat and ketones, but it also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells.

During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induced changes that triggered stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells. In particular, prolonged fasting reduced the enzyme PKA, an effect previously found to extend longevity in simple organisms, which has been linked in other research to the regulation of stem cell self-renewal and pluripotency (the potential for one cell to develop into many different cell types). Prolonged fasting also lowered levels of IGF-1, a growth-factor hormone linked to aging, tumor progression, and cancer risk.

How To Fast Intermittently & Activate Autophagy

While there are many ways to fast, one of the more sustainable methods of fasting is intermittent fasting (IF). IF is done cyclically and for shorter periods of time, so it is much easier to adopt IF into your weekly schedule as it won’t take much out of you compared to longer periods of fasting. In fact, practicing IF will have you more focused and energized throughout your day compared to when your body is in a constant state of digestion.

The easiest way to IF is to pick an eating window each day and stick to that window. This can be an eight hour window or less, but typically you want to keep your eating window under eight hours in order to reap the most benefits. An example of an eight hour eating window could be 11am-7pm, or if you normally eat later in the day then you could try something like 3pm-10pm.

During your fast you can still drink beverages as long as they contain no calories such as lemon water, tea, or coffee (without cream or sugar). There are incredible regenerative benefits to dry fasting as well (abstaining from consuming any food or water); however, dry fasting will push the body into deeper levels of detoxification and should be approached more slowly.

Breaking your fast is just as important as the fast itself. The first meal after a fast should be easy to digest. Juices, coconut water, and smoothies are great options as well as watery and astringent fruits such as grapes, cherries, and oranges. After that, salads are the next best option. After breaking the fast with raw fruits and vegetables, you can then move on to eating cooked foods as your digestive system will be activated by then.

Autophagy and fasting are the key to regenerating the body on a cellular level and, when used strategically and systematically, these tools hold enormous potential in transforming your health.

My 400 Days Without Candy & What I Learned About Sugar Addiction

Published

on

At the end of 2017 I decided to temporarily say goodbye to my dietary Achilles heel.

While I’m certainly not suggesting that I am some beacon of ideal healthy eating, I have always been someone who, for the most part, makes what I’ve found to be healthy choices. Except for my one glaring weakness… candy.

In particular, the really sour and heavily sugar coated kind, but you’d be hard pressed to find me turning down even those better classified as sweet, with all of their sugar fused within the confines of the chew. Cherry Blasters, Sour Patch Kids, Fuzzy Peaches, Sour Punch Straws, you name it, I ate it, and usually with a big smile on my face.

But no matter how much my tastebuds loved this stuff, I’ve always known that it’s not good for me (I can’t imagine that there is anyone out there who actually thinks it is), so I decided to listen to my body, just as I had already done with a number of my other dietary changes. I opted to no longer ignore the stomach and headaches that would often come shortly after my sugary indulgences and give it up.

What started as a one month challenge quickly evolved into a three month challenge, followed by a one year challenge, and then a 400 day challenge simply because I liked the sound of the number. Here’s some of what I learned from this journey:

advertisement - learn more

The First Days Are Undeniably The Hardest

The old adage that it takes approximately 21 days to break a bad habit or make a new one in this case certainly held true. It was right around the 3 week point that I started to find myself far less tempted and far less frequently on the search for something to satisfy my sweet tooth. And believe it or not, the longer I went on, the less appealing the idea of eating candy became. It almost felt as if the memory in my tastebuds that had controlled so many of my past decisions had gradually faded away.

Mindset Is Everything

While I will fully admit that my quest to 400 was helped by it naturally feeding into another one of my “addictions” (a great joy in setting records and tracking analytics), I found that so much of the temptation to consume these sugary, salty and greasy foods really was incredibly temporary. Challenge yourself to at least not let it win once and you’ll likely see just how quickly its strength can fade.

It Paid Dividends

While I didn’t completely cut sugar out of my diet, as many people have so admirably done and documented about, I can say that cutting back even as much as I did felt really good for me. Some may be quick to chalk it up to the placebo effect, and understandably so, but I can honestly say that the above mentioned stomach and head aches occurred far less often over the 400 day span.

Real-Time Analysis: After The First Bite

Having now officially consumed my first piece of candy since 2017, believe it or not, it tastes different. Is it still tasty and did it satisfy me at some level? Absolutely. But it also tastes way more sugary and foreign to my body than it once did. It’s as if my body really wanted to make it clear by saying, “are you sure you want to bring this stuff back into the picture?”

Side Note: For those that are curious, since it’s the most common question I’ve been asked since embarking on this journey, the candy I chose to eat as my first piece was a Vegan Wild Cherry Belt by Squish Candies. (And no I’m not getting paid to brand-drop, and no I don’t make any commission should you choose to buy any at that link… unfortunately LOL).

Where I Go From Here

While I don’t see myself going completely cold turkey on candy again, I also cannot see myself consuming it nearly as much as I once did. And I do so happily, not out of punishment. While I’m also certainly not qualified to be giving out dietary advice, I am comfortable challenging all of you to give up something you know to not be good for you. See how your body feels both without it and after you re-introduce it.
