Children

ADHD
Nine-year-old Montana Lance took his own life in a school bathroom.
Since that day, many have searched for the answer to one question: Why?

It’s a question that may never be answered, but the youngster’s family can’t help but wonder if a drug he was taking for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) had something to do with it.

The prescription drug is called Vyvanse, also known as lisdexamfetamine. It is an amphetamine used to treat ADHD, and Montana Lance was taking it.

So were at least two other children who have also taken their own lives.

adhd_montana_lance-300x169When Montana was found dead at Stewart’s Creek Elementary School, parents in The Colony couldn’t believe a nine-year-old boy would hang himself in a school bathroom.

The autopsy report said amphetamines were found in his blood.

Montana’s parents declined to go on camera, but confirmed to News 8 that Montana had been taking a new medication for ADHD, Vyvanse.

Vyvanse went on the market in 2007. Since then, there have been more than 130 reports to the FDA concerning Vyvanse and suicide, ranging from people as old as 54 to children as young as 6.adhd_vyvance_tablets-300x169

The FDA says 37 Vyvanse patients who considered suicide were younger than 10. There were at least two seven-year-olds who completed the act.

In all of 2007, only four people under age 10 committed suicide in the United States.

“For the most part, it is a very safe medication,” said Dr. Syed Quadri of Texas Health Springwood Hospital, who prescribes Vyvanse for some of his pediatric patients. He said there is a known risk for all stimulants and ADHD drugs — especially if there are symptoms of bipolar disorder or depression.

“When you don’t treat that and you’re just treating ADHD, yes, you are going to have somebody who is depressed and irritable, and can commit suicide,” Dr. Quadri said.

Shire, the manufacturer of Vyvanse, would not comment specifically on the Montana Lance case, but sent News 8 this statement:

“It is important to note that simply because there is a specific medication present in a person’s system at the time of their passing, it does not mean the medication had any correlation with the cause of their passing.”

On the medication guide for Vyvanse, the FDA warns of new psychotic symptoms linked to amphetamines, and tells patients to tell their doctor about any family history of bipolar disorder or suicide.

Montana’s mother told News 8 she suspected her son was bipolar, but the condition had never been diagnosed.

Melissa Petty leads the North Texas ADD support group. She’s also the parent of an ADHD child. She says parents need to trust their instincts and ask questions before their child is prescribed any ADHD drug. Her advice: Make sure you see a child psychiatrist, not just a pediatrician.

“These medications are serious. They’re expensive. You need to have somebody who has experience treating ADHD in children, and has lots of experience,” Petty said.

The Lance family still believes Montana was bullied into suicide. But they continue to look for other reasons a nine-year-old would end his own life.

The FDA says its data on drug reactions are based on reports from doctors. The agency says it cannot determine that a drug is unsafe  based solely on those reports.

Flouride Wars

Fluoride is found in most our water and in most toothpastes. Doctors have warned that it may be affecting the intelligence levels of children. Recent research suggests that osteosarcoma, the rare bone cancer that killed Terry Fox, may develop from an excess of fluoride. Fluoride strengthens the outer layer of our teeth preventing decay. Lobbyists of adding fluoride to drinking water call it forced medication. High doses were used to kill rats in the First World War.

Among the recent studies, the most worrisome is the possible association with childhood osteosarcoma. The disease, the cause of which is unknown, is fatal in about one-third of cases and almost always leads to amputations.

An excess of fluoride leaves white marks and pits on our teeth.

Health Canada’s recent report acknowledges that excess fluoride intake, which constitutes 10 mg/day after 10 or more years of exposure, can lead to skeletal fluorosis, which is caused by too much accumulation of fluoride in the bones and leads to brittle and deformed bones. Health Canada’s April/08 report recommends that infants are particularly vulnerable if they ingest powdered infant formula reconstituted with fluoridated water. “The risk of excessive intake of fluoride is higher for infants consuming larger quantities of infant formulas,” reads the report. The panel subsequently calls on the manufacturers of infant formula to lower and standardize the fluoride concentration in infant formula.

Richard Wiles is the executive director of the Washington-based Environmental Working Group, a public-interest group that has been lobbying the U.S. National Institutes of Health to provide a second opinion on fluoridation. The EWG worries that we are being overexposed to fluoidation. They observe that fluoridation is based on research done in the 1940s. Mr. Wiles contends that it wouldn’t be able to pass a modern risk assessment used for drugs or pesticides.

Health Canada is not as concerned, stating, “The fluoridation of drinking water supplies is a well-accepted measure to protect public health that is strongly supported by scientific evidence.” Nonetheless, the department said it is currently studying the recent scientific findings and may adjust the amount it recommends for water.

Check the labels of bottled water, many do contain significant amounts of fluoride.

In Canada, the highest levels of fluoridation are in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. B.C, Newfoundland and Quebec fluoridate negligibly.

As an alternative:

If you are looking to lower your exposure to fluoride while this war rages on, Orarex Toothpaste is Homeopathic and contains no fluoride or sugar. Your teeth feel slick all day when it is used. Orarex is highly effective on bleeding gums, and helps allevieate gum disease. It is effective to clean teeth of plaque. It is safe for the youngest children.

Generation RX

“A documentary on the dangers of mind-altering drugs has arrived this year.    Not many films have the potential to radically reshape the understanding of an entire nation and create positive change for the health of future generations, but this is one that clearly qualifies. Generation Rx delivers a devastating blow to the psychiatric drug pushers, FDA puppets and Big Pharma marketing fraudsters who have sold an entire nation on an absurd idea that turns out to be a grand medical hoax: that millions of children have “chemical imbalances” in their brains requiring treatment with patented, profitable pharmaceutical drugs like Prozac and Ritalin.

The film features interviews with many notable doctors, authors and health experts, including Dr. Julian Whitaker, Dr. Fred Baughman, Robert Whitaker (author of Mad In America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and The Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill) and many others. Through the emotionally-charged personal testimonies of parents whose children have committed suicide on Prozac, along with secret memos from the drug companies’ own top executives, Generation Rx weaves a terrifying tale of criminal conspiracy, the mass abandonment of medical ethics, and the routine betrayal of an entire generation by an industry that seems fixated on the idea of profits at any cost.

The evidence presented in Generation Rx is damning. By the time you finish chapter three of the film (which contains the most jaw-dropping revelations of FDA corruption and scientific fraud), you’ll cry out for the criminal prosecutions of key FDA decision makers, Big Pharma executives and the authors of the DSM-IV, the “bible” of modern psychiatry. Fifty-six percent of the panel members who created the DSM-IV are on the take from drug companies, pocketing cash, bribes, royalty payments or other fees from the very same companies that profit from the mass marketing of “brain chemistry diseases.”

Evidence of criminal conspiracy

Generation Rx reveals startling evidence detailing the criminal negligence of the FDA. The highly corrupt Food and Drug Administrationdidn’t “accidentally” approve psychotropic drugs that just happened to kill children, you see: The administration knew that SSRI drugs (antidepressants) were killing children for well over ten years! The FDA then went out of its way to bury the evidence, colluding with prominent drug companies to hide key documents while hastening the approval of dangerous drugs and keeping the public ignorant of the true risks from consuming them.

Kevin Miller’s Generation Rx covers all this (and more) in heart-wrenching detail. You’ll see the remarkably lucid explanations and warnings by the scientifically-minded Robert Whitaker (who used to be a skeptic that Big Pharma money could possibly influence science), pleas for medical sanity by Dr. Julian Whitaker, and even home movie footage of young girls who later killed themselves while on Prozac. You’ll walk away from this film shaking your head in disgust, asking “How did it come to this?” ”

Miracles Do Happen

Baby healed of CANCER through Prayers and GOD’S Herbs!

Our son, Dallas Cole Guffey, was born Monday, October 17, 1994 at 5:16 p.m.  He had the appearance of a healthy 7 lb. 3 oz. bouncing baby boy.  But less than one hour after his birth everything changed.  He was brought to me in recovery where I was to feed him for the first time.  During the feeding Dallas began gasping for air and his forehead turned blue.  I called immediately for the nurse and she rushed Dallas to the nursery.  In about an hour the pediatrician was standing at my bedside telling us that Dallas had quit breathing but was revived by inserting a tube into his throat.  The doctor also said that he was so concerned about Dallas that he had already called the Med Flight Unit in Huntsville for immediate transportation.

At 10:30 p.m. Dallas was in the helicopter.  Waylon, my husband, went to Huntsville with Dallas and called me every hour to update me on his condition since the doctor would not release me at that time.  Dallas remained in Huntsville for the next 3 days.  The doctors in Huntsville felt that it was necessary for him to be transferred on Thursday to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham for further tests.

On Friday afternoon we were told that Dallas was not able to breathe because a large mass was located behind his right lung.  This mass was preventing air flow to his lungs and putting pressure on his heart causing an irregular heartbeat.  The lungs were so restricted that each breath was a tremendous task for Dallas.  His stomach and his back bone would almost meet because it took so much for him to get the air he needed.

We were told that surgery was necessary to remove the mass early Monday morning.  We would not know what the mass was until it was removed and examined.  Thank God the surgery went great and Dallas recovered extremely well.

From birth up until this point it had been necessary for Dallas to have the tube in his throat to be able to breath.  The morning after surgery the doctor told us they were about to remove the tube from his throat.  I had reservations about doing this soon after surgery so I fell to my knees in prayer while Waylon went to talk to the doctor about waiting one more day to allow his strength to increase.  The doctor agreed to wait.  On Wednesday morning a team of about 6 doctors equipped with emergency equipment gathered around Dallas to remove the tube.  Very shortly thereafter, the nurse came to get us with a huge smile on her face.  She said that the doctors were extremely surprised at how well Dallas began to breathe on his own without missing a single breath.

That afternoon we were told that the tissue had been examined and diagnosed as a Neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor involving the nervous system, and they determined that the cancer was in Stage 4, which is very serious.  It would be impossible for me to even try to express the extent of our devastated emotions at this point, but I can honestly tell you that this was the worst moment we had ever experienced in our lives.

The doctor told us that they were going to do more tests to be sure that there were no more tumors.  They were quite sure that there was less than a 5% chance that any more tumors would be found.  Since the doctors would not allow us to give Dallas herbs directly, my only choice would be to get them to him by way of nursing him.  As soon as we were able to get our thoughts together, I called home and asked that someone make me some Native Legend Tea and bring it to me along with some Red Clover Plus, CoQ10, Chlorophyll, Nature’s Tea, Lifiber, EFA’s, Stress Aid and much more.  We also began to give him PhytoPath when it was made available in January.  After receiving the products, I began taking mega doses of these products.  I took about 60 to 80 capsules 3 times a day plus I was drinking mega doses of Red Clover Plus and Native Legend Tea daily because I wanted my milk to be strong with nutrients for Dallas’ benefit.

On Thursday we were told that the x-rays revealed two more tumors!  One was located on the bones around both eyes and the other one was against his spine.  At this point we almost lost what little strength and sanity we had.  Waylon and I believe strongly in God and that God answers prayers.  God had already answered one of our prayers when He gave us a child and we knew that He would also take care of this wonderful gift.  I know that God was holding our hands and guiding us through every turn of this journey.

The doctor felt that chemotherapy was necessary because the pressure of the tumor against his spine could possibly cause his limbs on his right side to become paralyzed.  Waylon and I have always been horrified of chemo because we have seen friends suffer and even die as a result of it.  We prayed about this and decided that we would do one treatment.  The recommended dosage was to be the mildest dosage he could be given.  We knew that we could cleanse his body of the drugs afterwards but if he became paralyzed we could not do anything about that.

During a meeting with the doctor she informed us of all of the side effects of the two drugs Cytoxan and Adriamycin.  These side effects ranged from mild to severe stomach aches, liver and kidney damage and even leukemia.  Out of curiosity, Waylon asked the doctor what she would do if the chemo caused leukemia.  She said she would treat the leukemia with a different kind of chemo.  (This made little sense to us.)  These dangerous side effects made us feel comfortable with our decision to give Dallas only one chemo treatment.  The doctor laughed at us and said, “One treatment is a nice thing to wish for, but don’t count on it.”  We told her that we were not wishing for it, we were praying for it, and it would happen.  The doctor’s intentions were to give him 5 treatments.  We were very careful in asking her prior to signing any consent forms if we could in fact, stop the treatments after the first one without a court battle over our child’s care.  She told us that his care was in our control and we could stop after one treatment.

His chemo treatment would last for eight days.  For seven days Dallas received Cytoxan by mouth and on the eighth day he received Adriamycin through an external central catheter.  During these eight days Dallas never had a fretful day or a fever.  In addition to that, several nurses commented to us that they had never seen a baby as sick as Dallas have such a great attitude.  Even though he had monitoring wires attached to him and at least two to three I.V.s in his scalp, he was always smiling.  We contributed this to God and the nutrients Dallas received from the herbs we were giving him.  He was released from the hospital on Sunday which was the day after his treatment was completed.  This had been the longest 3 weeks of our entire lives!

November 21st (one month old) was our first follow-up visit after leaving the hospital.  The doctor told us that the tumor on his spine had decreased 50%!  We were beside oursleves with excitement!  His doctor was not happy at all when we told her that we still did not want any more chemo.  It was at this point that we told her about the herbs we were giving him and that we preferred to continue that route.  She was furious, but she saw that we were firm with our decision.

Our second follow-up visit was on December 16th (two months old).  We originally scheduled his appointment for January in order to give the herbs as much time as possible to strengthen his body.  One day upon returning home we were astonished to find an incredibly insensitive as well as unprofessional message from Dallas’ doctor on our answering machine.  In an extremely hateful tone she demanded to see Dallas at once, bluntly stating Dallas’ impending death if a chemo treatment was not administered immediately.  She said the tumor would grow to the point of not allowing him to breathe and he would die.  Such a message made us very angry.  In order to prove to her that our child was not being neglected but in fact, was doing great we agreed to see her immediately as she requested.  One fact that made her statement on our machine so incredibly ridiculous was that the tumor that had caused him not to be able to breathe had been removed when he was 1 week old from which time his breathing had not been an issue.  At our visit it was discovered to her amazement according to the x-rays that the tumor on the spine had decreased by another10% and the tumors on the bones around both eyes was completely gone!  It was during this visit, after giving us such wonderful news, that his doctor threatened to force us to give him more chemo by taking us to court.  We quickly and plainly told her that under no conditions would she force our child to have any more chemo.

She also was very negative with her words.  She was saying things like “death” in the same sentence with our son’s name.  I more or less got directly in her face and told her very strongly that if she could not say anything positive about our son in either his or our presence that I preferred she say nothing at all.

Our third follow-up visit was on February 6th, 1995 (four months old).  The x-rays revealed at this appointment that the tumor had decreased by an additional 5%.  We were very pleased with his improvement but again all his doctor could talk about was more chemo.  As a matter of fact, her attitude was so negative and rude, that we decided on that day to terminate her as his doctor and never subject our son or ourselves to that kind of treatment again.

As parents who love our son dearly, we prayed for a doctor that would respect us as parents, and would be more interested in our son’s health than filling their pockets full of money.  We also prayed for a doctor who believed in God as our Healer.

A friend of ours put us in contact with a doctor whom he believed could help us.  This doctor called to ask what we expected from him.  I told him that first of all, we believe God heals the body.  Secondly, we believe in and take nutritional supplements.  Thirdly, Dallas would not have any more chemo as long as the tumor continues to shrink without it.  Also, that we would not tolerate someone threatening to take us to court.  In the end, he was very nice and said he would gladly work with us, however, we should expect him to recommend chemo just as the previous doctor had.  I told him that he could recommend it as long as he understood that we could refuse it.

Our first appointment with him was on April 21st (six months old).  On this glorious day the x-rays revealed that the tumor was no longer a tumor.  It has now become what he referred to as “scar tissue”.  Also, according to the urine and blood test there was no cancer in Dallas’ body.  He went on to say that according to the medical records transferred from Birmingham, that on February 6th, it was also the opinion of Dallas’ previous doctor that the tumor was, even then, only “scar tissue”.  (However, she undoubtly did not find it necessary to share this important information with us.)  Waylon asked the doctor why this information had been kept from us by the doctor in Birmingham.  He simply gave us a very confusing look and said that he did not know.  As you recall, the doctor in Birmingham had nothing to say on that day of February 6th except how we were not being fair to our son by not allowing her to give him more chemo because she insisted the tumor would grow. (I have a copy of Dallas’ medical reports and x-rays in my possession to prove her dishonesty and deception.)  The doctor told us that Dallas looked clear, but before giving us his final diagnosis he wanted to study the x-rays in more detail with a team of doctors on his staff.  He said he would call us on May 1 to give us the final decision.

May 1, 1995 was almost as joyous for us as the day Dallas was born because just as the doctor promised he called and confirmed his initial decision.

Considering the fact that the doctor in Birmingham was sure that Dallas would die of cancer if any other treatment besides chemo was given, he is today vibrant, healthy and cancer free with the use of alternative methods rather than chemo.  Dallas has recently turned eight months old weighing a healthy 20 lbs.  He is extremely strong and advanced for his age.  He is always in a pleasant mood with a constant smile on his face.  When people meet Dallas they are shocked to learn what he has been through because he is the ideal picture of health.

We could not have made it without everyone’s prayers, and because God is faithful to those who look to Him.  We thank God for healing Dallas and we also thank God for giving us the herbs and nutrients to cleanse and strengthen our bodies.

UPDATE ON DALLAS

Dallas is now 3 yrs. old.  He has just completed his first year of pre-school at Living Word Christian Academy.  He was the youngest student in the 2-4 year old class.  At 3 years old he is still healthy, happy and very intelligent.  I must take a moment to brag about my son.  He can write his name, recite The Lord’s Prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Bible, the Christian Flag, and the U.S. Flag.  He can also recite John 3:16 and many other Bible verses.  At Awards Night he received the award for Most Polite.  Are we proud parents or what?!

Dallas-Guffe-150x150

Dallas Guffe at 15

Dallas’ health is doing great!  We returned to Vanderbilt in Nashville on February 18, 1998 (3 yrs. 4 mo. old) for his annual checkup.  When we arrived we asked the receptionist about our normal routine of getting Dallas’ urine sample and doing the x-rays as we had been required to do in the past.  She said she did not know about the x-ray because there was a big question mark on the front of Dallas’ chart so she did not know what was going on.  At first this scared us, then we thought – No, that just means that Dallas has done so well that they don’t know what they need.  Within a few minutes we were called back to see the doctor.  He reviewed Dallas’ history with us.  He also reviewed with us the fact that Dallas only had the one chemo treatment and no radiation.  He then asked us if Dallas had received all of his immunization shots.  We were quick to tell him that we do not believe in immunizations.  (If you have children please do some research into these shots for your child’s sake.  Give yourself the opportunity to make an informed and educated decision).  After the questions the doctor examined Dallas.  Turning to Waylon and myself, the doctor said, “Well, Dallas is obviously healthy and has done so well for so long that I don’t see any reason why Dallas needs to come back to see us anymore.”  We were so excited!  We have been waiting to hear this report for over 3 years.  I said, “Doctor, you have made our day by officially closing this chaper of our lives.”  I looked at Dallas and said, “Dallas could you please recite something for the nice doctor?”  He said, “Yes, The Lord’s Prayer.”  So he did.  When he finished the doctor gave him a hug and said, “Son, you just made my day.”

We are blessed and thank the Lord every day for our blessings.  We are also thankful that He gave us such a wonderful testimony of His love for us all and of how He provided the herbs and nutrients that we need to be healthy.  Even though our Lord provided the tools for good health I feel that it is our responsibility to learn about them and to use them.  We did not rely on the doctor or anyone else for our son’s health.  Instead, we relied on the Lord and took on the responsibility of Dallas’ health ourselves by educating ourselves and making our own decisions instead of allowing anyone to order us to do anything we did not feel good about.

When we first learned of Dallas’ problems I asked the Lord “Why us?” The Lord told me “Be patient my child, I am giving you a testimony.”  From that moment on, I knew that Dallas would eventually be perfectly healthy because this was going to be a great testimony about God’s desire for us to be happy, healthy and prosperous.  For this reason, I feel it is my duty to share Dallas’ story with everyone.  Yes, we have been blessed with a wonderful miracle, but this same miracle of health is possible for others too.

May God Bless You,

Kim and Waylon Guffey, Jr.

As parents who love our son dearly, we prayed for a doctor that would respect us as parents, and would be more interested in our son’s health than filling their pockets full of money.  We also prayed for a doctor who believed in God as our Healer.

A friend of ours put us in contact with a doctor whom he believed could help us.  This doctor called to ask what we expected from him.  I told him that first of all, we believe God heals the body.  Secondly, we believe in and take nutritional supplements.  Thirdly, Dallas would not have any more chemo as long as the tumor continues to shrink without it.  Also, that we would not tolerate someone threatening to take us to court.  In the end, he was very nice and said he would gladly work with us, however, we should expect him to recommend chemo just as the previous doctor had.  I told him that he could recommend it as long as he understood that we could refuse it.

Our first appointment with him was on April 21st (six months old).  On this glorious day the x-rays revealed that the tumor was no longer a tumor.  It has now become what he referred to as “scar tissue”.  Also, according to the urine and blood test there was no cancer in Dallas’ body.  He went on to say that according to the medical records transferred from Birmingham, that on February 6th, it was also the opinion of Dallas’ previous doctor that the tumor was, even then, only “scar tissue”.  (However, she undoubtly did not find it necessary to share this important information with us.)  Waylon asked the doctor why this information had been kept from us by the doctor in Birmingham.  He simply gave us a very confusing look and said that he did not know.  As you recall, the doctor in Birmingham had nothing to say on that day of February 6th except how we were not being fair to our son by not allowing her to give him more chemo because she insisted the tumor would grow. (I have a copy of Dallas’ medical reports and x-rays in my possession to prove her dishonesty and deception.)  The doctor told us that Dallas looked clear, but before giving us his final diagnosis he wanted to study the x-rays in more detail with a team of doctors on his staff.  He said he would call us on May 1 to give us the final decision.

May 1, 1995 was almost as joyous for us as the day Dallas was born because just as the doctor promised he called and confirmed his initial decision.

Considering the fact that the doctor in Birmingham was sure that Dallas would die of cancer if any other treatment besides chemo was given, he is today vibrant, healthy and cancer free with the use of alternative methods rather than chemo.  Dallas has recently turned eight months old weighing a healthy 20 lbs.  He is extremely strong and advanced for his age.  He is always in a pleasant mood with a constant smile on his face.  When people meet Dallas they are shocked to learn what he has been through because he is the ideal picture of health.

We could not have made it without everyone’s prayers, and because God is faithful to those who look to Him.  We thank God for healing Dallas and we also thank God for giving us the herbs and nutrients to cleanse and strengthen our bodies.

UPDATE ON DALLAS

Dallas is now 3 yrs. old.  He has just completed his first year of pre-school at Living Word Christian Academy.  He was the youngest student in the 2-4 year old class.  At 3 years old he is still healthy, happy and very intelligent.  I must take a moment to brag about my son.  He can write his name, recite The Lord’s Prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Bible, the Christian Flag, and the U.S. Flag.  He can also recite John 3:16 and many other Bible verses.  At Awards Night he received the award for Most Polite.  Are we proud parents or what?!

Dallas’ health is doing great!  We returned to Vanderbilt in Nashville on February 18, 1998 (3 yrs. 4 mo. old) for his annual checkup.  When we arrived we asked the receptionist about our normal routine of getting Dallas’ urine sample and doing the x-rays as we had been required to do in the past.  She said she did not know about the x-ray because there was a big question mark on the front of Dallas’ chart so she did not know what was going on.  At first this scared us, then we thought – No, that just means that Dallas has done so well that they don’t know what they need.  Within a few minutes we were called back to see the doctor.  He reviewed Dallas’ history with us.  He also reviewed with us the fact that Dallas only had the one chemo treatment and no radiation.  He then asked us if Dallas had received all of his immunization shots.  We were quick to tell him that we do not believe in immunizations.  (If you have children please do some research into these shots for your child’s sake.  Give yourself the opportunity to make an informed and educated decision).  After the questions the doctor examined Dallas.  Turning to Waylon and myself, the doctor said, “Well, Dallas is obviously healthy and has done so well for so long that I don’t see any reason why Dallas needs to come back to see us anymore.”  We were so excited!  We have been waiting to hear this report for over 3 years.  I said, “Doctor, you have made our day by officially closing this chaper of our lives.”  I looked at Dallas and said, “Dallas could you please recite something for the nice doctor?”  He said, “Yes, The Lord’s Prayer.”  So he did.  When he finished the doctor gave him a hug and said, “Son, you just made my day.”

Dallas Graduates PHS

Dallas Graduates PHS

We are blessed and thank the Lord every day for our blessings.  We are also thankful that He gave us such a wonderful testimony of His love for us all and of how He provided the herbs and nutrients that we need to be healthy.  Even though our Lord provided the tools for good health I feel that it is our responsibility to learn about them and to use them.  We did not rely on the doctor or anyone else for our son’s health.  Instead, we relied on the Lord and took on the responsibility of Dallas’ health ourselves by educating ourselves and making our own decisions instead of allowing anyone to order us to do anything we did not feel good about.

When we first learned of Dallas’ problems I asked the Lord “Why us?” The Lord told me “Be patient my child, I am giving you a testimony.”  From that moment on, I knew that Dallas would eventually be perfectly healthy because this was going to be a great testimony about God’s desire for us to be happy, healthy and prosperous.  For this reason, I feel it is my duty to share Dallas’ story with everyone.  Yes, we have been blessed with a wonderful miracle, but this same miracle of health is possible for others too.

May God Bless You,

One in Five PreSchool Children are Obese

It’s NOT just Baby Fat, it’s a Nation-wide Epidemic!

A new study from the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine reports that almost one in five American four-year-olds is obese, and the rate is alarmingly higher among blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians.

obese-childrenThe report’s lead author said that rate is worrisome among children so young, even in a population at higher risk for obesity because of other health problems and economic disadvantages.

“The magnitude of these differences was larger than we expected, and it is surprising to see differences by racial groups present so early in childhood,” said Sarah Anderson, an Ohio State University public health researcher. She conducted the research with Temple University’s Dr. Robert Whitaker.

The study is an analysis of nationally representative height and weight data on 8,550 preschoolers born in 2001. Children were measured in their homes and were part of a study conducted by the government’s National Center on Education Statistics.

The findings revealed that almost 13 percent of Asian children were obese, along with 16 percent of whites, almost 21 percent of blacks, 22 percent of Hispanics, and 31 percent of American Indians.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults fare no better. Approximately 45 percent of blacks, 36.8 percent of Mexican Americans and 30 percent of whites are obese.

obesity_1Obesity leads to unhealthy complications such as high blood pressure and abnormal blood lipids which can lead to heart disease and stroke and diabetes in children.

Diseases commonly seen in 40- or 50-year-olds are presenting in six- and seven-year-olds. Obese children are developing type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease and musculoskeletal problems, which occur because their bodies can’t carry that much weight.

The Pharmaceutical / Supplement Debate

Is it not time that we stop relying so heavily on Pharmaceuticals?   We are creating our own Hell on Earth  with our demands on the Medical systemand by continuing with our own bad habits.There are absolute alternatives that most of us do not understand or embrace.

Pharmaceutical companies will bend over backwards to create a drug for a condition. Even though there are natural alternatives clinically proven, in the SAME research facilities to be more effective, billions of dollars are spent to find a drug alternative that is known to cause significant side-effects.  Financial gain is sustaining the momentum on this practice, however we are the ones creating the demand for it by not taking proper care!  Our Medical facilities cannot keep up with the demands we place on them either!

Medical professionals are not taught an overwhelming amount of nutrition. They understand how treat a condition with pharmaceuticals, and they are, for the most part,  bound to follow that training.

The popularity of dietary supplements has created a great deal of research on the interactions of drugs and supplements.

Due to a large rapidly aging population relying on pharmaceutical products, it is found by some of the research, there is a monumental risk that these individuals will suffer nutritional inadequacies, or worse, nutritional deficiencies induced by the use of pharmaceuticals.  The impact of waste from these products flushing through our bodies and down the drain, are another contributing factor to global environmental catastrophes and global epidemic health problems.

Another example was the delayed publishing the news of the radioactive spill of Tritium at the Automic Energy Canada,Chalk River nuclear facility in December.  It is well known that this facility is in desperate need of upgrade for public safety, however this plant generates 70% of the global supply of isotopes used for Cancer radiation and medical diagnostics.  Some are downplaying it as “just a minor amount”, not to worry.

But , consider that a great deal of cancers would not occur if we had proper nutrition.  We also need to reduce our exposures to harmful elements.  We all know this, but were are running our routines, no time to change gears.  It’s somebody else’s problem, somebody else’s fault.  Are we really helpless to  effect change?

Calcium de Glucarte is a formulation which has given several Cancer patients years of life and a quality of life.  Calcium D-Glucarate’s effect is to favor the body’s natural defense mechanism for eliminating carcinogens thus preventing many forms of cancer, including lung, breast, prostate, and colon. It was proven in several studies done at the MD Anderson Cancer Clinic in Houston , Texas. There are no toxic effects from taking D-Glucararate.  I have heard of many people gaining several years of quality life using this. How many people have ever heard of this ?    Do you wonder why ?

Would there not be less of a demand for the nuclear facility in Chalk River and  those isotopes if we were to personally place more focus on managing our health and environment a bit better?

Statins are globally used to assist the Cardiovascular epidemic reduce cholesterol.  This is 40 billion industry in North America. The Statins are known reduce CoQ10 in your body- this is extremely important for heart health. As CoQ10 decreases people develop congestive heart failure.

Our bodies are not chemical processing plants.  I doubt that evolution is going to have us caught up to that any time soon either! Why are we, marching so steadfastly to that Pharmaceutical pit here in North America?  Heart disease is 80% preventable, and yet it is the leading cause of death globally.  .

Diuretics used to decrease the volumes of salt and or water in our bodies to reduce blood pressure.  They do this very effectively.  The trade-off is depletion of the essential minerals magnesium and potassium, and  the Vitamin-B , thiamin responsible for neuro-function and carbohydrate metabolism.

Metabolismis important!!  We have an epidemic of Obesity epidemic to the point where we are thinking it might just be a good idea to get those fat kids on Statins… ?We have solid science on natural alternatives that absolutely work.Why is that not part of the medical regiment?

Pharmaceuticals provide important benefits to patients with medical problems but consumers should beware of the potential depletion of nutrients associated with their use.

We have absolute solid science on many natural alternatives that address serious conditions.  Pharmaceuticals provide important benefits to patients with medical problems.  To learn more on Calcium D-Glucarate go to the link above WELLNESS, WOMEN’s Health – Women’s Formula Plus,      MEN’s HEALTH- Men’s Formula Plus. For further information on Bios Life, the only clinically proven natural alternative for Statin Drugs see HEALTH SOLUTIONS, Read about Bios Life, read about the Heart.

I believe that the responsibility is ours to pay attention to our lifestyle alternatives.  We are running out of time!

Youth Obesity

We have all heard that there is an obesity crisis, and that children are becoming obese at an early age.    

Here is a slide show published in the International Journal of Obesity that shows the scary numbers.

There are plans to have children placed on drugs like Lipitor to address this situation!!  Are you prepared to let that become a reality??

Unicity Balance is a safe , natural way melt fat.

and then…Look a the side effects for Lipitor!!

Important Information About LIPITOR

Read the Patient Information that comes with LIPITOR before you start taking it and each time you get a refill. There may be new information.

What Are the Possible Side Effects of LIPITOR?

LIPITOR can cause serious side effects. These side effects have happened only to a small number of people. Your doctor can monitor you for them. These side effects usually go away if your dose is lowered or LIPITOR is stopped.

These serious side effects include:

  • Muscle problems. LIPITOR can cause serious muscle problems that can lead to kidney problems, including kidney failure. You have a higher chance for muscle problems if you are taking certain other medicines with LIPITOR.
  • Liver problems. LIPITOR can cause liver problems. Your doctor may do blood tests to check your liver before you start taking LIPITOR, and while you take it.

Call your doctor right away if:

  • You have muscle problems like weakness, tenderness, or pain that happen without a good reason, especially if you also have a fever or feel more tired than usual
  • You have allergic reactions including swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and/or throat that may cause difficulty in breathing or swallowing, which may require treatment right away
  • You experience nausea and vomiting
  • You pass brown or dark-colored urine
  • You feel more tired than usual
  • Your skin and whites of your eyes get yellow
  • You have stomach pain
  • You have an allergic skin reaction

In clinical studies, patients reported the following common side effects while taking LIPITOR:

  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Alterations in some laboratory tests

The following additional side effects have been reported with LIPITOR:

  • Tiredness
  • Tendon problems

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have side effects that bother you or that will not go away. These are not all the side effects of LIPITOR. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for a complete list.

Before You Start LIPITOR

Tell your doctor if you:

  • Have muscle aches or weakness
  • Drink more than 2 glasses of alcohol daily
