{January 10, 2010}   New Tests for Heart Disease

In reading Parade today, they talked about various tests to predict your chances of getting heart disease.

One is high levels of C Reactive Protein (CRP). I remember my husband and I having this test. This test is recommended for those at immediate risk for heart disease. 

They are know saying that your homocystein level is linked to heart disease, stroke, and peripheral disease.  How can we reduce the risk?  Eat certain B vitamins, consume greens, more vegetables (2/3’s of your plate) and make sure you have enough folic acid in our diet. Check the contents.

 Another test is the LDL or bad cholesterol test that our doctor always uses in cholesterol screening.  Some folks need to go on cholesterol lowering drugs. 

Then there is fibrinogen, a protein that is involved in clotting.  We don’t want clots anywhere in our body. Cigarettes, alcohol and hormone therapy can increase fibrinogen levels.


{January 10, 2010}   Depro Shots

A study following women on Depo Provera shots found that 45% experienced bone mineral density losses of 5 per cent or more in their hip and spine.  This is something to really be concerned about because of back problems.  Women should not smoke.  Bone density tests may be important and taking calcium every day.

{January 10, 2010}   Ph Miracle by Dr. Robert Young

I think it is a video on the Los Angeles Times website  in which I saw the interview of Dr. Young and his wife speak on their book called the Ph Miracle.  I have bought other books on Super Foods  and similiar topics throughout the years and even tested myself for Ph weekly. Ph Miracle is sold on Amazon, online.  People have been cured of diseases from balancing their Ph levels.

I know you can buy the Home Ph test Kit from  Lucky Vitamins and replacement test strips.

Cancer patients seems to have high Ph. I know in my case it is the pills or other imbalances that need to be fixed.  His interview is a reminder that we shouldn’t eat a lot of sugar, starch, additives and meats. We need to go back to God’s garden, the earth’s greens. 

Obesity is about acid and akalinity too. Disease is a state of imbalance in the body.

This website has a lot of detoxifiying kits on it as well.
