L-Arginine won the Nobel prize in Medicine in 1998, and was found that it directly causes the body to produce nitric oxide... which causes arteries to relax and widen, melt away plaque, and heal the inner lining of the arteries themselves.

For heart disease look at the Vitamin C foundation website. I have successfully unblocked an artery within 3 weeks of using their protocol.

Vitamins K2 + D3
Posted by P. Raghavan. (Virudhunagar, TN, India.) on 08/22/2019


Vitamin K2 prevents calcium from depositing in the wrong areas such as arteries, lungs, knees, etc.

There are a number of articles available in the net on Vitamin K2 for cardiovascular disease. The following two articles are very important: 1) “Vitamin K2: What is it? Does it remove plaque? “ by Dr. Brewer. 2) “Vitamin K2” by Dr. Mercola. According to articles available in the net, Vitamin K2 is synthesized by probiotic bacteria “Lactococcus Lactis” in our digestive system from the food we eat. If this probiotic strain is reduced in our digestive system because of stress / powerful antibiotic treatment / chemical exposure, etc., Vitamin K2 deficiency will occur. Since Vitamin K2 controls calcium metabolism, Vitamin K2 deficiency will cause calcium to be deposited in the wrong areas such as coronary arteries. This in turn will cause cardiovascular disease. One can take multi-strain probiotic tablet/ capsule containing probiotic strain “ Lactococcus Lactis “ to solve Vitamin K2 deficiency problem semi-permanently . I searched in the net for this tablet for about 45 minutes.

One can do additional searches in the net for other brands. But there are a limited number of brands with this probiotic strain. Then you can choose your brand based on user reviews or other criteria. This probiotic tablet may be taken half an hour before breakfast for about 30 days. If you have cardiovascular disease, it will be a good idea if you talk to your doctor regarding multi-strain probiotic capsules / tablets containing probiotic strain L. Lactis. It is a simple and effective treatment . One can take this probiotics along with regular medicines.

Best wishes. P. Raghavan.

As for the enzymes, a minimum dose could be taken daily for the entire lifespan, but for disease states one would need to take "therapeutic doses" until recovery.

Yes, do the herbal circulatory cleanses as suggested. For a strong heart, take Magnesium Carnitine, and CoQ10.

Papajirao, in India, and everywhere, people use arjuna bark for heart problems, high blood pressure, overweight and so on. Please do an internet search. I just learned about this herb yesterday, and I am researching for my own heart problems. It looks amazing, and the arjuna supplements are made in India from the bark of a tree that grows there. When I searched Google with "arjuna powder or extracts?" I saw that indiamart sells it.

Hi Pradeep,

Honey is mixed only to make it palatable otherwise it may be rather difficult for one to take. What I would suggest you is that make it without the honey and then if it tastes offensive then you can add minimum honey as per your requirement and then take it. That much honey is not going to act adversely.

Good Luck, Baldev

In 2002 I researched arteriosclerosis and found one five year study which used Apple Cider Vinegar in some juice as an arterial plaque remover for heart patients.The success rate was over 90% and not one subject had a stroke or heart attack during the entire study. I believe the daily dose was 1 tablespoon in the morning before breakfast. I wonder, can Apple Cider Vinegart also clear amyloid plaque from the brain?

One of the problems with Paulings recommendation is that some people can't take a lot of vitamin C. EDTA will leach minerals from your body. These methods were very useful until the advent of fibrolytic enzymes.

EDTA and Pauling protocol has been obsoleted with fibrolytic enzymes like nattokinase. It just needs to be taken on empty stomach. besides being more convenient and less expensive, it does not leach minerals from your body.

I have just started learning about IV therapy, but it seems to be a real miracle way to get 100% absorption of nutrients.. I feel a person that can't afford IV therapy needs to be bold and learn to self administer IVs. A person must carefully study how to administer an IV. Be bold and self administer. Don't be afraid. You and your wife can learn to admister IV therapy. It is not that dangerous. I have not researched, but veins are missed by those professionals administering all the time and everyone always lives. It is not as dangerous as medical field would make you think.

I was given an IV the other day by a senior paramedic and I watched as a small air bubble went into my vein. Then when he pulled the IV blood went everywhere. I mean it sprayed and he failed at both ends of it. He allowed an air bubble in during connection of IV and then he allowed blood spray when pulling it out. Double F, F (failure, failure). I lived and no harm no foul. Just learn to not allow huge amounts of air into the blood stream and you will be safe. Keep everything clean. Learn all the dangers. And make sure you get quality product and do your home work on mixing the IV safely. And get the IV fluid from a trusted alternative source, or learn to make your own.

I heard a Doctor recently say, a couple can learn to self adminster IV therapy and remove a huge cost burden.

Also, consider Glultathione IV for MS and Parkinsons. Two sources I'm hearing are having excellent results.

Dietary Changes
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 10/14/2013

To Debbie from Australia,

Just one correction on your comments on the excellent article you cite by Dr. Dwight Lundell. Lundell in the article does NOT attack real whole wheat bread, like our forefathers ate. In fact, he asserts we must get back to those whole grains like our grandparents used. He is opposed to "highly refined carbohydrates" and uses sugar and white flour as the prime examples.

It is whole wheat where most people get what little NATURAL Vitamin E they do get, which is essential to keep the arteries from becoming tacky and therefore not prone to pick up fats which adhere to the walls of the arteries and become oxydized thus ... Inflamamed which is, Dr Lundell says, the real cause of heart disease.... Not a low fat diet. He decries a low fat diet, in fact.

I hold to the 50 year old theory that inflamation itself is caused by oxydizing oils and toxic refined carbs sticking to tacky artery surfaces. This concept was first introduced by Canadian doctors, brothers, the Shutes who argued that stealing the germ out of the wheat and other grains to give them shelf life, took the very life out of the grain, the part of the grain that made the human system work properly.

If you don't eat whole grains, you need to get your Vitamin E (natural and not synthetic) from pill form.

The current attack on "wheat" is throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Yes, eliminate refined flours, but do consume the whole grains. If you feel you must get rid of all grains then supplement with the Vitamin E tablet. At least 200 IUs daily of d-alpha tocopherol. I take 800 IUs and have for 30 years.

Best of health,

China has done thousands of studies on fibrolytic enzymes and found that they prevent heart attacks and strokes. Cholesterols in arteries is what keeps people from dying from the inflammation. As an aside, people with ME/CFIDS/CFS have chronic blood coagulation caused by a primary microbe infection.

I'd suggest keeping it up for a year, but if you want to stop the breathlesness start taking cayenne. It works straight away by dilating small blood vessels and increasing the oxygen. It will increase the effect of the other treatment as well.

Yes i'd say that would be adequate, if you make it into a paste with butter or oil on bread or something similar, it makes it more palatable, some people like the heat, so its up to you. It increases the effect of other treatments as well by opening up the small capillaries.

Vitamin k2 peripheral artery diseaseIn 2016, there was a scientific study published in Atherosclerosis that found a link between a high intake of Vitamin K2 and a reduced risk of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). Researchers surveyed over 36,000 participants about how frequently they ate certain foods high in Vitamin K1 and K2.

I agree that cleaning plaque with nattokinase (i'd use lumbrokinase now) should take priority because it can be done within a month or so and pull them away from the edge of a heart attack. They can do the D3, K2 and Cod Liver afterward if they want. They will need patience for that process.

I have read reported that the mineral Copper is very important for the integrity of arterial structure or tissue; so cooking with Copperware may be advised. Take 25 mg Zinc occasionally to balance the Cu.

Copperware has copper but it is "inorganic" so the body won't be able to use it and you will end up being copper toxic. You need to eat organic copper (in plants). Getting minerals from plants also gives you the correct ratios of other minerals as well.

I'd be a bit carefull as ginger and garlic are potent blood thinners, and you are already on aspirin. You loose blood from the gut everytime you take an aspirin. Statins are contraindicated with grapefruit. Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar should clean out the arteries, might be best to stick with them. Or knock off the asprin and do the garlic and ginger?

If your blood is getting to thin (coagulation time increases) there is a high risk of internal bleeding (including stroke). I would not mix medication and natural remedies. You have to avoid contusions or any physical accidents.

Yes... Take it slow and build up the Apple Cider Vinegar and lemon juice over a couple of weeks, you don't want to strip to much calcium off the artery walls to fast, remember it has been deposited to protect the artery wall, probably because of something in the diet.... Free running table salt seems to be a main culprit, change to sea salt.... and probably too much calcium from various sources. The Apple Cider Vinegar and lemon juice dissolve the calcium in just the way it cleans a furred up kettle, so make sure you keep your fluids up, to flush the offending residue out. If you suffer from breathlesness and cyanosis (blueing of the extremities) have a serious look at cayenne but remember this is also a blood thinner.

EDTA Chelation

EDTA chelation pills work. I have a family history of heart disease so now in my early 40`s I started showing signs of about to have a heart attack. I got a pressing feeling on my chest that radiated down my left arm, sometimes it would hurt to the extent I couldn`t walk and my brain got all fuzzy. My family wanted to take me to ER but I didn`t want to go because my dad has seen many of his friends with heart problems get bypass surgery and still die of the heart condition or come out of surgery worse. He told me that the drugs & surgeries are expensive quick fixes that don`t last. So I started doing research and ordered EDTA. While I waited for its delivery I took emergency care.

1) I took cayenne pills and

2) I drank hot peppers, garlic, lemon, and honey in hot water while

3) I did deep breathing techniques and

4) a cardiologist previously showed me if I thought I was about to have a heart attack to lean forward, hold my breath, and give myself a huge bear hug as long as I could.

These 4 things gave me some relief but they did not take away all the pressure and pain. They just eased the symptoms. Next, I took and continue to take hawthorn. This increased my relief but still I was not healed. I was still feeling some pressure and pain but not as much.

Finally my EDTA order arrived and that did the trick. All the pain and pressure left and has not returned. However, after it left I also decided to make major changes in my diet to prevent the condition from returned. So now I don`t eat meat or oils other than coconut or a little olive oil. I eat NO processed or GMO foods. I do eat some eggs. I avoid canned foods and I avoid putting foods in plastic. I also changed my cookware to ceramic and iron--natural cookware. No more teflon coated stuff or aluminum. I have at least one salad a day and I cook my own food so I know what is being used. And I feel GREAT!!

Jo, I had the same problem you have measuring the Vitamin C after reading a Linus Pauling book. Using a kitchen scale didn't work for me because even the very sensitive ones aren't accurate enough. I was already giving up hope as the only small scales you find on Amazon are only sold in the USA. Then we went to Switzerland which is here next door and after asking around and finding nothing we found one in a shop in Basel which wasn't even that expensive. I use it in the kitchen now as well to weigh things like yeast for my bread or salt. You might find something like it in London. It weighs a fraction of a gram and I found it in a normal household applyances shop. Good luck...

This is from the heart disease page:

12/23/2010: Vic from Los Angeles, California replies: "I have tried this recipe earlier last year after my blood pressure was on the borderline. My sister in law passed the recipe to me and made it myself. A good friend of mine brought me along with her for free heart check somewhere in Los angeles. To check if there are plaques in your arteries. I have been taking that mixture for 3 months before I did the heart check and I wasn't sure if it was effective. I am a meat lover person and ate some veggies and fruits and did a little exercise, and I was with another person who had been a vegetarian for more than ten years.. We both have the procedure done and Lo and behold.. Our score was ZERO, meaning that no plaques whatsoever in our arteries and we both are of the same age range.. Mid forties.. So I guess it really works! "

Good luck

EDTA Chelation

HI U BOYS AND GIRLS,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Don't have many words of wisdom for you since my latest heart episode. It appears that the Japanese herb to thin my blood is working as my vitals are bettern ever. My Cardiologist was disappointed that my vessels are all open. He still wants me to go on a Statin Drug , which I will not. He still says EDTA Chelation does not work ,but I know better.

Got a wild hair and had the CEDSA procedure the other day. The technician said I was consumed with parasites and most were in my heart. She prescribed a Detox based on the electrical frequency of these buggers. I know that is so from reading Hulda Clark's book. I will do this along with using Clark's electrical Zapper.

Am dropping my Anti-Aging Doctor as she is begining to be consumed by her ego. When you catch Doctors in a lie, then you need to move on. Wish I had some words of wisdom but I still got lots to learn. Thought I would be smart at age 65 , but did not make it. Set new goal at 75 and appears that will not happen either.

If I get out of this health hole , I'll share it with you'uns, which is East Tennessean for you.

You bring up a good and valid question regarding cooked herbal remedies versus raw herbal remedies:

I have tended to think that raw was generally preferred because of the enzymes. But a comment I recently read by herbalist Susun Weed helped me to consider another way. She points out that when we make herbal teas/ infusions, etc, we are letting time and heat draw out the medicinal properties. If we take the herbs just raw, our bodies have to do that work.

Herbs are quite complex. I think there are times for using them raw and times for using them cooked. Some herbs work well taken in capsules, but others need time and water (like Red Raspberry leaf) to draw out the properties needed. Some herbs work very well when tinctured in alcohol. Others work well when tinctured in vinegar. (The alcohol is usually preferred, though.)

I do not know for sure the best way to prepare or take the concoction mentioned in this thread. I just thought I would add these thoughts because raw is not necessarily always the best way for herbal remedies to be taken.

After two heart attacks, 3 months apart, my husband and I diligently researched for natural helps to keep arteries clear. He has done a great deal but we feel, after much research and use, that daily either juicing with carrots and one quarter greens of some type or using a top quality green powder drink is vital. There is no doubt in our minds that green food which has not been heated to kill enzymes cleans arteries. Of course he has done and does much more. But if we could only do one thing, it would assuredly be to drink green! It has been 8 years now since those two heart attacks and he is currently on no medications and feels great.

I was introduced to ACV about 10 years ago, by a customer who had been taking it for about 10 years. He had suffered from heart disease, there was so much blockage in his arteries that the doctors could not do a bypass. He had not left his house for 2 years, because he could not walk the steps to get back in. He was told about ACV and thought he had nothing to loose. Within 6 months he began to feel better, and within 2.5 years was compeltely back to normal. today he is in his seventies and fit as a fiddle. His cardiologist could not believe the change. He has told me that he has at least 500 letters on file from people who have had his experience after taking ACV and who were as chronic as he was. I've done it now for 10 years as a preventative. I put about 2 tbsp into a glass of orange juice every nite just as this fellow did. I had tests done 2 years ago, to check for any blockage and there was none.

I recently got an antibiotic resistance test from my new periodontist which consisted of sticking paper tabs under my gums and sending it off to a lab ($125/500 depending on who does it for you). It came back registering a deadly toxin called fusobacterium nucleatum which is found in many post mortem alzheimers patients and cancer patients and those who have died of heart attack.

Get your gums checked immediately.

The problem was compounded by a recent discovery that this and other bacteria are always fed by a viral component. I was treated with anti virals for ten days followed by gum surgery followed by metronidazole since after 10 years of failed antibiotic protocols someone finally decided to test me for anti biotic resistance even though my gum health was in decline for a long long time. My health was better for a while. Went for follow up surgery and flew home on the metronidazole which landed me in the ER because it is contra indicated with high altitudes, messes up liver enzymes. Don't fly while taking Flagyl/Metronidazole.

My naturopath has me looking into the Marshall Plan. Will keep you guys updated.

Metabolism is a term that is used to describe all chemical reactions in maintaining the living state of the cells and the organism. Metabolism can be divided into two broad categories as follows:

1) The breakdown of molecules to obtain energy.
2) The synthesis of all compounds needed by the cells (e.g., vitamins, enzymes, etc.)

According to an article from Mayo Clinic titled “Metabolic syndrome – Symptoms and Causes – Mayo Clinic”, metabolic syndrome is cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart diseases, stroke and type2 diabetes. These conditions include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride level”. There are at least three diseases associated with metabolic disorders. They are as follows: cardiovascular disease, stroke due to calcium blockage and type2 diabetes. In USA alone, 48.5 % of people suffer from cardiovascular disease and 9.4 % of people suffer from type 2 diabetes. Stroke kills someone in the US about once every four minutes. A metabolic disorder can happen when abnormal chemical reactions in the body alter the normal metabolic process. The gut microbiota which is a population of microorganisms in the human digestive system has an important part in metabolism. One can prevent, control or reverse metabolic syndrome if proper corrective actions are taken.

There is a video available in the net titled “Vitamin K2 – What is it? – Does it remove plaque “by Dr. Brewer. This video explains how calcium metabolism problem is the cause of cardiovascular disease since vitamin k2 control calcium metabolism; calcium in our food should reach its final destination bone and teeth. Vitamin K2 deficiency causes calcium to be deposited in the wrong areas such as arteries, lungs, knees, etc. Chemical name for vitamin K2 is menaquinones. There is an article available in the net titled “Production of Menaquinones by Lactic Acid Bacteria”. According to this article, Vitamin K2 is synthesized by probiotic strain ‘ Lactococcus Lactis' from the food we consume . Probiotic strain L. Reuteri synthesizes Vitamins B12 and B9 and increases Vitamin D3 level. Vitamin D3 plays an important role in metabolism. To cure cardiovascular disease, one can consume multi-strain probiotic capsule / tablet containing probiotic strains L. Lactis and L. Reuteri.

One can do search in the net for brands that satisfy the requirement. One can select the brand based on your criteria. This special probiotic tablet / capsule can be taken half an hour before breakfast ( or as directed by the manufacturer) for 60 to 90 days to see good progress. I have cardiovascular disease for about 40 years. But no one told me that it is a metabolic disease. I was prescribed a lot of chemicals to treat this problem. But I made only a small progress. After watching the video by Dr. Brewer mentioned earlier, I realised that I have metabolic disorder. I started taking special probiotic tablet (one per day) containing L. Lactis and L. Reuteri. One can also take 1 to 2 cups of broccoli sprouts per day. Broccoli sprouts can convert damaged cells in the body ( e.g., damaged cells in the arteries and heart muscles) to normal cells. Now, my calcium blockage is reducing; I am making good progress and feel great.

There are two main causes of stroke: a blocked artery (ischemic stroke) or leaking or bursting of a blood vessel (hemorrhagic stroke). But 87 % of stroke are due to a blocked artery. If the blocked artery is due to calcium deposit, probiotic treatment for cardiovascular disease can be used to clear the blockage.

The human body is home of trillions of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other tiny organisms. They are called microbes. An average healthy adult has about 15 % bad microbes and 85 % good (probiotic) microbes in the digestive system. This can be determined by stool testing. When the gut flora contains too many harmful (bad) microbes and not enough good microbes, an imbalance can occur. This is known as probiotic imbalance or dysbiosis.
There is a video available in the net titled “Type 2 Diabetes may be caused by gut bacteria” from diabetes research centre at The Netherland. According to researchers at that centre, all Type 2 Diabetes have probiotic imbalance in their digestive system. Probiotic imbalance problem can be corrected by Increase the count of probiotic microbes directly by consuming probiotics.

Once the probiotic imbalance problem is corrected, fasting blood sugar level will come to normal level since fasting blood sugar is mostly due to bad microbes in the digestive system. It will take about 2 to 3 months to see improvements.

If a person has more than one medical problem (e.g., cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes), the above treatment will solve both the problems.

Best wishes.

I have just learned about the garlic, lemon, ginger cure.

I have been taking nattokinase and serrapeptase for close to a year now to help clean the arteries. I have noticed a difference in my circulation. My feet don't swell like they use to. I don't get chest cramps very often. And I can catch my breath without feeling concerned. I would never get out of breath, just a feeling of not being able to expand my diaphragm at will sometimes.

However, I still have anxiety issues and ringing ears. I also feel tightness in my head as if I have a tight ponytail with no headache. I am terrified of the medical system and try to use natural remedies to self heal. I am 53 and grew up on hamburgers and Doritos. I feel like I need a more aggressive treatment. I don't know if I should stop taking the enzymes if I start the garlic cure. I also don't know if I should do this cure or instead do the Tibetan garlic cure. Any thoughts on this?

B: As for the enzymes, it is important to take them without any acidosis issues in the gut or body and on an empty stomach preferably 30-60 min prior to meal. A 6 month course should clear out any scar tissue in the arteries.

As for the herbs, Hawthorn berries and Cayenne should be added to your list as they are very important for heart, lungs, and arteries.

You may also consider a vascular cleanse with the herbs White Oak bark, Horse Chestnut, Butcher's Broom.

Better But With Side Effects

I have had elevated blood pressure and minor angina this winter. Began taking l-arginine and it greatly helped. However, I also got a sore throat after a couple of weeks. I, then laid off the arginine and the sore throat went away. I started taking arginine with citrulline and again got a sore throat that bloomed into a full cold. I very much like the benefits of the arginine but the side effects are so far a disaster. I have taken l-lysine for a long time. Thanks to anyone who might be able to help.

I follow a practice called Reams Biological Theory of Ionization. In that practice it states that you should only take ACV if you have an alkaline PH. ACV will move your PH from alkaline towards acid. In RBTI one of the measurements is to measure the salt levels in the urine. This shows whether the body is retaining salt or eliminating it properly. Often high reading levels of salt in the urine can be an indicator of heart problems. Also there is a measurement of undigested and digested proteins in the urine. High levels of this measurement indicates stress on the heart. This practice shows you how to tailor your diet and supplements to achieve a healing range.

To January Jefferson,

On use of ACV for amyloid plaque condition; you ask if ACV might rid the brain of the amyloid...I'd think so but would take a long time since the ACV has to get past the Blood-Brain barrier. Just give it time. Very good chance for success.

Posted by Mike62 (Denver) on 02/08/2014

January: Amyloid plaque is a protein Apple Cider Vinegar does not remove. Removing insoluble plaque from the brain does not improve cognition because the soluble plaque is the most dangerous. I am going to give you a very potent remedy. Put 3g freeze dried wild Alaskan blueberry powder, this has 6x the potency as organic, $86 1 lb., this neutralizes the soluble plaque, 3g yucca powder, this has resveratrol and analogues, 5g fresh whole root turmeric, this removes the insoluble plaque, grind up in the blender first, and 3g fresh harvest high potency maca, this stimulates the hypothalamus, into 1 cup water kefir, home brewed for 1 day, and brew for 1 more day, fermenting increases nutrient activity, then drink with 5g coconut oil. Eating cooked conventionally grown food caused the condition so change to 85% raw organic produce and 15% raw grass fed animal products to function optimally. The super foods for the brain are raw cocoa powder, marine phyto plankton, Hawaiian spirulina, non denatured whey isolate, and desiccated liver. Take 1ml skate liver oil 3x/day.

I like the idea. The studies I have done in Paul Talalay's work from John Hopkins on broccoli Sprouts and turmeric, however would be more attuned to the clearing of Beta amyloid plaque from the brain.. As I remember it is the ingredient called Sulphorphane or Isothiocyante (sic) that detoxifies carcinogenic material in the body by activating Phase II enzymes in the liver which sets off a cascade of antioxidant pathways and activates genes for three days (3) after ingestion.

Hi Jagatheesan,

Honey is mixed to make it palatable, otherwise it will be quite strong and you may not like it. So, if you are diabetic use less of honey as per your taste. You have to take one cup of each, lemon juice, ginger juice, garlic juice, and apple cider vinegar and boil it on low heat till it remains to three cups and then let it cool. Once it is cool then you can mix one cup or even less if you feel like of honey in to it. Keep this mixture in the fridge and take a tea spoon of it two to three times a day. It will help you, this works like a heart tonic.

Good Luck

Hi Karmau!

My father had exact same case like yours.

He had artery blockages and was suggested a surgery. For few weeks he had the concoction you had, and he was alright.

After he was alright, he started getting pain in his chest again. I noticed he gets pain within 1-2 hours after eating in weddings. Food in many weddings in India has high contents of fat (oils) and spices. Otherwise, he is alright.

Hope you are feeling better.

Heart artery pluggage is zero at age 77. I know that I.V. Chelation works. Who told you that oral chelation works?

Not trying to rain on your parade, but where do you get your facts? Most folks on this site have been down few dusty trails and will tolerate questionable questions, but some like me, do not accept questionable facts. You can do folks harm if you are shooting from the hip.

Dave, good luck in finding the wheat our forefathers used to eat. It has been modified and hybridized to the point of being unrecognizable today.

If you believe that wheat is the only option for vitamin E then you really need to study more.. Is Vitamin E the only reason you can think of to keep eating wheat? Herbs, nuts, vegetables are all good sources. 2 slices of Wholegrain wheat raises the blood sugar level higher than a can of soda or a candy bar which in turn is the cause of huge weight increases in EVERYONE today. Look around you at the shopping centres and tell me that people are getting healthier by eating whole grains. How many peole eat nothing but wholegrains and keep putting on weight.

You only have to see the people on this type of eating plan to see the health benefits.

Here is a man who lost over 100 lbs in one year and probably saved himself from a heart attack in the process. His diabetes is nearly under control and he is now running marathons.

Anyone doubting that wheat/grain/gluten free is healthier just look at this amazing man.

His story is repeated hundreds and hundreds of times even in people who are over 60 and 70. They have even got rid of lifelong pain and arthritis.

Dave, I never said the wheat was GMO. I said modified and hybridised.

"So why has this seemingly benign plant that sustained generations of humans suddenly turned on us? For one thing, it is not the same grain our forebears ground into their daily bread. Wheat has changed dramatically in the past fifty years under the influence of agricultural scientists. Wheat strains have been hybridized, crossbred, and introgressed to make the wheat plant resistant to environmental conditions, such as drought, or pathogens, such as fungi. But most of all, genetic changes have been induced to increase yield per acre. Such enormous strides in yield have required drastic changes in genetic code. Such fundamental genetic changes have come at a price."

Thank you Mike. What you are saying is absolutely inspiring as well. You figured it out yourself. I would hesitate to add the 54 year old in India probably had non modified corn. I now eat grass fed meats from a local farmers market and grow some herbs which I am adding to. I am thinking of getting my own chicken and just feeding it herbs and grass (the way they should be fed). The guy at my farmers market who sells eggs, feeds them grains thinking that was healthy. What chicken eats corn? He is reading the book now and looking for herbs to grow to feed his chickens.

I saw a documentary a fews yrs back about the futile effort for poultry especially, but livestock farmers in general, in some eastern European country, to continue using probiotics as feed supplement instead of pharmaceutical grade, gov recommended antibiotics. Big pharma's aggressive marketing rolls independent choices or practical benefits.

Hydrogen Peroxide or Colloidal silver can also be used in ag in place of chemical antibiotics at much less cost in production.

Hi Debbie. I'm agreeing with you. I recently I read a recorded account of a meeting between the Persian and Ethiopian kings in the fifth century B.C., that I think you will quite enjoy, and this is my condensed version:

The Ethiopian king was informed how wine was made and drank some for the first time and found it delicious. He then inquired of the Persian what they ate and how old they lived. The Persians cultivated wheat and the king said they ate bread (and obviously drank wine) and lived to 80. The Ethiopian king then said he was not surprised that anyone who ate “dung” should die so soon and if it were not for the wine, they would probably die even sooner. The Persian then asked the Ethiopian the same question and was told they ate boiled meat, drank milk and lived to 120.

Fast forward 2500 years and it seems to me that the more things change, the more they stay the same. We still eat the same “dung”, just modified varieties so that farmers can produce higher yields to appease the consumer demand for low prices, and we still only average living to 80.

The Ethiopians were doing everything right back then, a high fat, high protein diet and the milk wouldn't even have been pasteurised. Ethiopians now average 60 – and these days, lots of sourdough flatbread is pretty much a staple. Say no more.

Except for an average of 3 slices of wholemeal bread per day, I have been on a low carb, high protein, high fat diet for nearly 6 months and at 5'7, 57kgs and 57yo, feeling pretty darn good. I offset the carbs in the bread with high protein. Bacon and eggs for breakfast is just not right without toast.

Also, there is about 3 times more vitamin E in one egg than there is in one slice of bread. I often contemplate having a few chooks roam around my backyard, too. The soil in the backyard is dizzy with worms, they'd love it. So yes, chooks eat meat too, so tell your egg market guy to include meat scraps in their diets.

What chicken eats corn? All of them. Corn fields are the best place for hunting turkey, grouse, partridge, quail---all birds eat grain of all sorts. All corn may be gmo, but don't kid yourself that your chickens will be healthy if all you feed them is herbs and grass. They eat bugs, too, so they aren't vegetarian. How about doing some research before you get chickens and harm them by feeding them the wrong thing.

Dietary Changes
Posted by Debbie T. (Australia ) on 10/17/2013


Chickens do eat seeds (and bugs) of course there is nothing wrong with seeds fed to chicken. I realise they eat worms or other things. Most chickens do not run around in corn fields, not where I am from anyway. I did not mean taking away healthy seeds which they will find in a field anyway in addition to what you feed them.

Most corn today is GMO. Please research GMO and you will know that it stops mineral absorption into the body. You may care to eat it at your peril.

Here is a article of someone who successfully is raising grain free fed chickens. It can be done and it is soo much healthier for the chicken and the people eating the eggs from them.

See the article below of what happened to pigs stomachs when fed GMO food (not specifically corn). It turned their stomachs to "mush". Mice fed GMO food also ended up with huge tumors all over their body.

I think I would also add cayenne pepper into this (1 450mg capsule) or a couple of teaspoons.
