The Sugar Fix – FROM THE PANCREAS’ POINT OF VIEW

If your pancreas could talk to you:Too much sugar can lead to Type 2 Diabetes

“Sorry, but I needed to get your attention, so I had to get to you where you’d inevitably notice – looking in the mirror. You look about as cheery as a Russian novel and your mood swings are positively dizzying. You feel a tad queasy and your middle seems to be bloating up overnight. Your energy fluctuates between racing around like a scalded cat and passing out on the sofa, and this is happening more frequently.

“You see, during your healthy jags, when you quit bombarding me with processed sugary junk food, my insulin facilitates the transfer of blood sugar into your body’s cells. In America’s 30+ million type 2 diabetes sufferers, this insulin-assisted transfer is disrupted causing glucose to build up in the blood.

“The large amounts of sugar, alcohol and other carbohydrates you’re eating are overworking me – I’m beat! You don’t have to be a monument to culinary denial, but eat some clean vegetables, dang it! Clean fish and proteins, too.

“Make an effort to steeply reduce the sugars and other carbos, or you could lose me – and you really don’t want that. Besides the insulin shots and pills, the yeast and skin rashes are no fun, not to mention a body that becomes increasing more difficult to propel.

“Start with the Sugar Free formula to help with the sugar cravings and to promote stable blood sugar. Then take a look at the Hypoglycemia, Diabetes and the Pancreas diet in ‘Feeling Very Much Better’. And so you will – feel much better, that is.”

Some Type 2 Diabetes Facts:

  • 10% of the population have diabetes, up 382% from 1988 to 2014.
  • The risk increases with age, with over 1 in 4 affected at age 65 and up.
  • Weight is a factor and 71% of American adults are now overweight or obese. Children who are obese: 2-5 yrs (9.4%), 6-11 yrs (17.4%), 12-19 yrs (20.6%).
  • Diabetes is now the #7 cause of death in the U.S.

That being said… some healthier food choices, regular and sufficient exercise, and supporting herbal supplements can go a long way toward reducing your risks and improving your quality of life.

Be well and stay hearty,

The Flu

Dear patients and friends,The Flu 2017-18

That’s it, we’ve got it. It likes its new premises – us – and has moved in. Once it’s settled, just rest and go with the flow. Take enough of your Herba Pneu, Bactotox and Enhance to keep you more comfortable, but otherwise, don’t bother to “fight it”. Let it run its course, albeit a shorter one, because it will have its way. The time for acute doses has passed, they work best before we’re exposed, say at the gym, school, in a plane, restaurants, etc. – places with lots of people are hot beds for these mean viruses.

Usually, we’re miserably achy and some of us have the queasy stomach that goes with it – you know the one that prompts us to bemoan, “Just let me die! Just let me die!” while clinging to the porcelain in the bathroom. But all of us are so weak and tired, our bed calls and nothing much else will do.

If we’re lucky to have a member of the household not affected, these are some things they can do to help:

For the pain: For a throat on fire, gargle with warm salt water or warm water and apple cider vinegar 3-4 times a day. Your pain med of choice will probably need to be pulled out and put into service as needed for the body aches. Hot water bottles, heating pads and chamomile tea with honey and lemon are comforting. As much as possible, keep the hot water bottle on your chest, as it also helps calm the cough.

For the cough: Sometimes the meds are enough, but usually not, so the Enhance formula should be employed along with the Bactotox and Herba Pneu formulas. They will usually work in about 2-3 days. If it’s chest-ripping and rib-hurtingly severe, your MD may be kind enough to prescribe some codeine which sometimes works in a few hours.

For the malaise: Rest, of course, is ideal. In fact, if you’re lucky enough to be able to do so, sleep and sleep as much as possible. Sweating is great to clean the lymph glands. If that’s not easy for you, our homeopathic LMPH-DRN (Lymph-Drain) will help.

For the bronchi: Get tough and chew some raw garlic while inhaling the fumes. Eat pico de gallo with baked corn chips or celery, as much as is comfortable. Anyone who complains about the odiferousness surrounding us at that time, should eat the same things and no one will notice.

Hot soups including lots of veggies, garlic and onions will help. Miso is the simplest, my favorite being the white paste. Of course, if you’re lucky enough to have friends who’ll prepare some soup for you, drop it on your front porch and run, all the better. Also, pineapple in any form is great for colds and flus and, of course, ’tis the season for citrus and its whole, natural vitamin C. Coincidence? Go for at least 2 pieces a day.

Make sure the bowels clear each day, otherwise your tenants will hang about even longer. An apple at bed usually works and/or prune juice. Use your bowel herbs as needed also.

Be well and stay hearty,

Jolly Holiday and Time-Out Dates

Dear patients and friends,

I hope you’ve already enjoyed the Gentian Root for your Thanksgiving digestion, a little gift we’re including with your holiday orders.

Of course, also, a last minute gift of a Therapy Pack or Herbal Formula works well for some of us, as in this little recent note I received: “I’ve bought a Therapy Pack in the past and loved the result. This one is for my husband.”

Quick FYI for HOT FLASH sufferers: try adding a cup of edamame, either to your dinner or late evening snack and see what happens…

Our Little Thanksgiving Gift to You

Dear patients and friends,
Eve on Bandon Beach
We’re heading into THAT season again, where we suddenly need to fix the house, drop 10 pounds, create new recipes, as well as avoid a nervous break-down. And on a couple of those topics, I was delighted to receive the following testimonials to inspire this back-from-our-little-holiday letter:

“I am super excited about not taking the depression medicine anymore! I feel better and more energized with your [herbal] formulas than I did with the [prescription] medicine.” She took the Joy Formula, Patic Fe and MNF. This can take a couple of months of adjusting the dosages and feeling the changes.

Also:  “Thank you!  I dropped 21 pounds in the last 2 months with the Detox, Patic Fe and TQH.”

Another little weight loss hint: Try making your green salad with a base of Napa cabbage, instead of the softer lettuces, and add some chopped celery. It’s a better scrubber, more filling and takes more time to eat. As you likely know, we feel full after 25 minutes of beginning a meal. So, we stretch it out like that, chewing these 2 veggies like a placid cow – et voilà, no longer hungry. A regular favorite dressing, with some feta added, makes it especially good.

If you’re traveling, especially flying, do please remember to take your immune support with you, start taking it a day or two before leaving and continue for a week after you return.

In addition to the trusty Bactotox, Enhance, AHCC or A-Defense, we have the all new Gripp-heel flu prevention formula, which is now called ReBoost Cold/Flu Relief. It helps both preventively and after the fact, and is available in two chewable flavors: ReBoost-Berry and ReBoost-Lemon. As all of these are not needed, you know your favorites I expect.

Our Thanksgiving gift to you is a bottle of Gentian Root with your next order over $75, it is an appropriate digestant just made for the season. Offer it at your table in a little bowl alongside the plethora of carbs (LOL).

A wonderful Thanksgiving from our hearts to yours,

Doc Eve
