Health News (Week 38 – 2013)
By Robert Redfern
I have had many requests from readers asking how to protect families (especially students going away to college) from the ravages of infections that are on the increase.
So here goes…
They have no doubt been reading about the deadly bugs that are overcoming every attempt to create new antibiotics and warnings are being issued by all of the Disease Control authorities around the world.
I am not an automatic believer in what authorities say but when they say they have failed, it catches my attention.
The fact is, this was predicted nearly ten years ago by researchers and I guess every government simply hoped it would not come true or another antibiotic would come galloping over the hill at the last minute.
Antibiotics are now the most common cause of death for acute liver injury. I won’t go into detail on all the other damage they cause, as I am sure you are fully aware.
Instead of being the cavalry, antibiotics are fast becoming the enemy.
Many have asked what is the alternative to antibiotics?
Well…….I call it ‘The Friendly Cavalry’
The cavalry comes in many different forms and the first one I recommend is called ‘Sol’ or HydroSol Silver. I know many of you have read my previous articles and some have emailed me to question the safety after reading all sorts of stories on the Internet. I am aware there are concerns about silver, as in its metallic elemental form it is toxic. I have always said that for silver to be safe as a supplement it has to be processed to be as close to its organic state as possible.
The Good News…
I have always been happy with the safety and efficacy with studies on HydroSol silver and yesterday I received further new studies from the manufacturer. They had commissioned these to give consumers additional confidence. I was delighted to see that these studies were ‘peer reviewed’.
What does ‘Peer Reviewed’ mean?
This means that the studies were fully reviewed by other independent researchers, to ensure no bias.
I am delighted to confirm that Hydrosol Silver is completely safe for all the family. Completely as expected!
For more information on Silver, if you missed it, read my newsletter from Week 26 here.
More Friendly Cavalry Instead of Antibiotics…
1st Line Immune Kits – This is a patented system of restoring your body’s own first line of defenses using an all-natural lacto-peroxidase hypothiocyanite ion delivery system. Thiocyanites are found in tears, saliva as well as the surfaces of your airways and hypothiocyanite ions are active against most bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is a lack of these that leave those with weak immune systems and particularly lung disease sufferers at risk. Of course you need a really healthy diet but this is useful when extra protection is needed and my whole family take them every few months just to help. I am flying to the USA this weekend and will be taking three to be sure. Shop here for 1st Line Kit.
The Friendliest Cavalry of All…Probiotics…
Soil based ‘friendly bacteria’ are the essential bacteria we need in our digestive system to: Protect us from the germs that make it past the thiocyanites, regulate the candida that goes out of control, manufacture certain vitamins and to keep the lining of the digestive system healthy, just to mention but a few things!
I have always recommended that anyone on antibiotics must take a good probiotic. There are plenty of studies that show the benefits. A recent one, by the Cochrane Collaboration on 4,213 patients, showed how antibiotics disturb the ecosystem of organisms in your digestive system. Those on probiotics suffered LESS side effects such as stomach cramps, nausea & diarrhea (caused by the dangerous Clostridium difficile bug).
We need high doses in times of trouble and then a maintenance dose to keep us topped up. Prescript Assist is a probiotic with 29 strains of friendly bacteria (most probiotics have 1-4) and which has peer-reviewed clinical studies. Most other probiotics lack scientific study.
If you want a good probiotic choose Prescript Assist. For maintenance, one capsule a day is fine and a bottle will last around 2 months Shop here for Prescript. The good news is that unlike other probiotics, Prescript does not require refrigeration – great for students to keep in their room.
The last (but not least) recommendation is Daily Immune Protection. This is a formulation containing well-researched and documented ingredients, all combined in one super formula. It is more for long-term protection for those, who like me, come from a genetically weak, immune deficient, family line. To purchase all of these separately would cost 3-4 times what DIP costs. Now is the time to start thinking about improving immune health, with winter approaching.
The Whole Cavalry, ready to defend your family!
