Is Aspartame Dangerous? with Dr. Daniel Nuzum (video)

I just opened an email with the following subject line…

Does drinking this beverage increase your chance for getting cancer?

It’s from The Truth About Cancer by Ty Bollinger and I wanted to share it with you…

People around the world are consuming this beverage at an alarmingly high rate.

Studies have proven that drinking it in excess contributes to diabetes, high blood pressure, and even cancer.

Even worse, a toxic chemical found in this beverage has been cleverly disguised by many different names – but the results from ingesting it are the same.

In this eye-opening interview with our friend Doc Nuzum, he sheds light on this ingredient that can wreak havoc on your body.

Please be sure to share this captivating interview with your friends and family.

Enjoy 🙂

Is Your Body Too Acidic? (before and after pics)

Did you know that Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that cancer as well as all other diseases THRIVE in an acidic body but can’t survive in an alkaline body?  When your body is acidic it is also very low in oxygen and this is a perfect breeding ground for disease.  When your body is alkaline it’s high in oxygen and this is the environment  for good health.

When I learned this back in 2010, I got very excited.  I was on a desperate search for anything that would help my husband who had just been diagnosed with liver disease and given 5 to 10 years.  I knew we had to get ourselves more alkaline but how?  I immediately thought about food.  What should we be eating?

I found an alkaline / acidic food chart online and found out we should be eating 80% alkaline and no more than 20% acidic and guess what… the average American is doing exactly the opposite. Because of what we are eating, drinking, breathing and stress… most of us are way too acidic.

To shorten our story… I was reminded by a friend that our body is 75% water so drinking alkaline water is a total NO-BRAINER.  It’s total common sense that it’s going to be much easier to alkalize your body with water rather than just diet alone.

So… we purchased the ONLY water ionizer on the market made with medical grade material.  Water is the last place you want to cut corners because remember… your body is 75% WATER!!!

Anyway tonight we are doing a free LIVE webinar at 7:00 pm Eastern where I’ll be sharing what we’ve learned.  The best part is… if you decide to try a Kangen Water machine, you have 30 days to drink the water and if you are not 100% thrilled, you can return it for a full refund.  You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain.

Check out these before and after pictures!!! (the 3rd one down is my husband)

DO NOT Miss the Before and After Pics at the End

mo
Our 75 year old “boss”…

Mr. Oshiro is on a mission to share TRUE health with the world. There IS a better way… you don’t have to live your life being sick and tired all the time. Your body is 75% water!!!

We are honored to be on this mission with him… LOVE being part of a company with such high standards. Under promise and OVER deliver.

For 42 years Enagic’s been manufacturing medical grade water ionizers and they’re used in Japan’s top hospitals and clinics. A company does NOT stay in business for 42 years unless they are making an AMAZING product.

It’s so much fun and so rewarding to be part of such a big mission. Together our Enagic family is educating people all around the world about water and hydration.

One of the things we love the most is… we know that by educating people on this one HUGE piece of the health puzzle, people are going to have dramatic results. Your body is 75% water!!!

There is NOTHING else you could do that is going to have the same impact on your health as fixing your water. It’s called getting the most bang for your buck.

You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain. Make 2017 the year that you get as healthy as you possibly can… life will be SO much more enjoyable.

EVERY machine has a 30 day money back guarantee and in over 6 years and thousands of machines… we’ve NEVER had a machine returned. That should speak volumes.

And no worries if you don’t have the money, we have financing for as low as 0 down and $30 per month. How much are you spending every month on bottled, acidic, oxidizing (aging) water?

Please DO NOT tell me you can’t afford it. We bought our machine while going through foreclosure. We waited until Ron got a life threatening diagnosis and I would HIGHLY recommend you don’t do that. But my point is… if you want something bad enough, you WILL find a way. It’s called priorities.

I just cannot begin to tell you how thankful I am that we kept an open mind when Jan shared Kangen Water with us. It truly has changed our life. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mr. & Mrs. Oshiro.

By the way… did I mention that your body is 75% water? lol 😉

Manuka Honey: Anti-bacterial, Anti-fungal, Even Kills MRSA Bacteria

by Dr. Josh Axe
Top 10 Manuka Honey Benefits - Dr.Axe


Manuka honey
, produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, is one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world. There are many Manuka honey uses that range from healing sore throats and digestive illnesses, to curing Staph infections and gingivitis.

Historically honey has been used for medicinal purposes dating back thousands of years. Seeing that it is one of nature’s richest antimicrobial sources, it shouldn’t surprise us to hear that many archeologists claim that while excavating the tombs of Egyptian royals from thousands of years ago, they discovered unspoiled honey in pots! (1)

Whether it was with the Far Eastern Vedic tradition or ancient Greek mythology, or in Biblical times, where the promised land was known as the “land flowing with milk and honey.” cultures around the globe have praised honey for being an amazing healing treasure.

Yet because of industrialization, honey isn’t what it used to be. Like most things today, not all honeys are created equal. In addition to the more than 300 varieties of honey to choose from, you have the following options:

  • Raw or pasteurized
  • Filtered or unfiltered
  • Comb (with the edible beeswax inside) liquid, or whipped
  • Local or imported

As a rule of thumb, you get what you pay for.  Most products at conventional supermarkets are not much different from high fructose corn syrup. To get good honey today, you pretty much have to go to your local health food store, local farm co-op or go online to purchase the real deal.


Manuka Honey Nutrition Facts

What makes Manuka honey different is its amazing nutritional profile. Regular raw honey is already known for its tremendous nutritional and immune boosting abilities. Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of: (2)

  • Amino acids
  • B vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid)
  • Calciumraw honey, honeycomb
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Manganese
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Zinc

Yet with Manuka honey, the nutritional content is up to 4 times that of normal flower honeys. This is what is called the Unique Manuka Factor.


Unique Manuka Factor

Mountain Landscape, New ZealandIn 1981, researchers at the New Zealand University of Waikato discovered that Manuka honey has a considerably higher level of enzymes than regular honey. These enzymes create a natural hydrogen peroxide that works as an antibacterial. Some strains of this New Zealand honey are particularly rich in hydrogen peroxide, methylglyoxal and dihydroxyacetone.

This medicinal trilogy helps make up what is referred to as the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF), a global standard in identifying and measuring the antibacterial strength of Manuka. (3) Essentially, the UMF is a guarantee that the honey being sold is of a medicinal quality.

UMF is not found in the nectar of all Manuka flowers and, comparatively speaking, regular Manuka only contains the hydrogen peroxide antibacterial property that is common to most types of honey.

What separates UMF Manuka from other Manuka varieties is that it has both the natural hydrogen peroxide and its own natural UMF antibacterial property, which greatly enhances it effectiveness. The UMF properties of Manuka is extremely stable and, unlike the hydrogen peroxide common in most honey, is not easily destroyed by heat, light and enzymes in the body.


How to Verify Genuine UMF Manuka Honey

The minimum UMF rating recognized is UMF5, however, it is not considered beneficial unless it carries a UMF 10+ level of antibacterial activity in the honey. Anything ranging from UMF10-UMF15 is a useful level, and anything UMF16 and up is considered a superior quality.

Genuine UMF Manuka Honey will have these four things:

  • It will have a UMF trademark clearly labeled on the front of the container.UMF 20 sign label stamp
  • It will be from a New Zealand UMF licensed company and labelled in New Zealand.
  • It will have the UMF company’s name and license number on the label.
  • It will have a UMF rating number of 5-16+. If it is labeled without the UMF or without a number, then it is not the genuine article.

According to the UMF association the UMF rating actually tests the antibacterial performance of a honey and compares it to phenol, a disinfectant. The Active Manuka Honey Association(AMHA) that does the testing states:

“The presence of the special non-peroxide activity can be detected only by an array of scientific testing directly relating to the phenol standard. The rating has a one-to-one relationship to the phenol standard. “

This means that a UMF rating of 20+ is equivalent in strength to a 20% solution of phenol. The ideal UMF rating varies depending on your purpose, but laboratory studies have shown that manuka honey with a non-peroxide activity level of UMFÂŽ12 to UMFÂŽ15 is effective against a wide range of very resistant bacteria.

Here is an explanation of what manuka honey UMF you should use:

0-4 Non-therapeutic

4-9 Maintenance level with general honey health benefits

10-14 Supports natural healing and bacterial balance

15+ Superior levels of phenols that are highly therapeutic but shouldn’t exceed taking 1 tbsp at a time

Manuka Honey Activity Level chart

 

Another measurement used is the KFactor, created by Manuka honey maker Wedderspoon. According to the Wedderspoon website, “KFactor 12 guarantees 65 percent of the pollen grains in the honey are Manuka pollen grains, KFactor 16 guarantees 75 percent of the pollen grains in the honey are Manuka pollen grains and KFactor 22 guarantees 90 percent of the pollen grains in the honey are Manuka pollen grains.” (4)


Top 10 Manuka Honey Benefits

Manuka honey health benefits have been touted in the natural health world for a long time and even more in recent years because a growing body of research is starting to support thousands of years of folk medicine use. Some of the top Manuka honey uses are:

Acid reflux, SIBO symptoms, Heartburn 1. SIBO, Low Stomach Acid, Acid Reflux

Small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), low stomach acid and acid reflux go hand-in-hand. Because of Manuka honey’s known natural antibiotic qualities, it is a great medicine for any bacteria related disorder. In fact, in a recent study, one dangerous bacteria related to all three conditions, Clostridium difficult was found to be quite susceptible to Manuka honey’s bactericidal effects. (5) So taking Manuka honey is very beneficial at reducing reflux and balancing your digestive system to heal stomach and intestinal imbalances.

Acne Road caution Sign2. Acne and Eczema

The Internet is filled with patient testimonials that Manuka honey works marvelously for acne and eczema patients. At this time there are no clinical trials to support these claims, but this doesn’t bother me at all. Taking into account its proven antimicrobial and healing properties, it makes every bit of sense to assume that honey can help with these skin conditions. Most people claim that applying honey on affected areas for a few minutes, and then washing off with gentle soap and water usually does the trick. Repeat this every day or every other day for the best results!

MRSA bacteria or superbug 3. Staph Infections (MRSA)

You’ve probably heard of the super bug that has plagued hospitals the past several years, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (or MRSA). What has happened is that antibiotic overuse and drug ineffectiveness has caused certain strains of Staph to become virtually indefensible using typical hospital and nursing home medical protocols. Spreading so rapidly, most people affected by MRSA end up getting so infected that they require invasive procedures or devices such as surgeries, artificial joints or intervenes tubing to save their lives (6)

This past March, however, UK researchers from Cardiff Metropolitan University have offered us some natural hope. They discovered that Manuka honey down-regulates the most potent genes of the MRSA bacteria. Some scientists now suggest that regular topical use on cuts and infections (especially in the hospital and nursing home setting) may keep MRSA naturally at bay.

dressing wounds, burns 4. Burns, Wounds & Ulcers

According to a recent article in the Jundishapur Journal of Natural Pharmaceutical Products, “The use of honey leads to improved wound healing in acute cases, pain relief in burn patients and decreased inflammatory response in such patients.” (7) Moreover, because of its rich anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory characteristics, Manuka honey has been shown to prevent infection in people with venous ulcers. (8) It has also been used quite effectively as a wound dressing to promote rapid, improved healing.

Dental anatomy Diagram Illustration 5. Tooth Decay & Gingivitis

Several studies have come out recently describing how Manuka honey can help cure gingivitis and periodontal disease. Due to its superior antimicrobial properties, researchers from the School of Dentistry, University of Otago (Dunedin, New Zealand) discovered that chewing or sucking on a Manuka honey product not only caused a 35% decrease in plaque, it led to a 35% reduction in bleeding sites in people suffering from gingivitis! (9) Also calcium, zinc, and phosphorus are all important nutrients for healing teeth.

Chalkboard Digestive System Drawing 6. IBS and IBD

When evaluating the effect that Manuka honey has on experimentally induced inflammatory bowel disease in rats, researchers from Chandigarh Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research discovered several astounding findings: (10)

  • Manuka honey at different doses provided protection against TNBS-induced colonic damage.
  • There was significant protection with Manuka honey 5 g/kg as well as with 10 g/kg body weight compared with the control.
  • All the treated groups showed reduced colonic inflammation and all the biochemical parameters were significantly reduced compared with the control in the Manuka honey treated groups.
  • Manuka honey at different doses restored lipid peroxidation as well as improved antioxidant parameters. Morphological and histological scores were significantly reduced in the low dose Manuka honey treated group.
  • In the inflammatory model of colitis, oral administration of Manuka honey 5 g/kg and Manuka honey 10 g/kg body weight significantly reduced the colonic inflammation.

So Manuka honey not only healed intestinal inflammation and pain, but also repaired free radical damage, and protected against further damage!

Honey and Lemon Tea7. Sore Throats and Immunity

In 2007, data published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggested that, “A 5.8-kDa component of Manuka honey stimulates immune cells via TLR4.” (11) This is interesting because previous studies have indicated that honey stimulates cytokine production from human monocytes.

Coupling with this 2011 research showing how Manuka stops the growth of sore throat-causing Strep bacteria, it is no wonder that so many people benefit almost instantly from taking a spoonful of honey when they don’t feel well. (12) And recently it has even been approved by the National Cancer Institute to be used to heal inflammation in the throat from chemotherapy!

little girl blowing dandelions8. Allergies and Sinusitis

There are many anecdotal accounts of people receiving allergy relief after eating honey are all over the internet. There is even a study with honey and birch pollen that had remarkable results. The participants were given regular honey, honey with birch pollen added to it, and some used only their allergy medicines as a control group. The results were impressive:

“…patients reported a 60% lower total symptom score, twice as many asymptomatic days, and 70% fewer days with severe symptoms, and they used 50% less antihistamines compared to the control group.” 

They also found that there was very little difference between the birch pollen honey users and the regular honey users! So, taking Manuka honey on a regular basis can really help your seasonal allergies and lessen your need for medications! (13)

honey face mask, Honeycomb skin treatment 9. Beauty Treatment & Health Booster

Taken daily Manuka honey has an elixir effect that boosts energy and enhances your quality of life. Because of its nutrient dense profile, it boosts vitality, youthful energy, and has been known to improve skin tone and texture.

Use it in a homemade face wash to exfoliate and fight free radicals in the skin. Use it in your shampoo or a hair mask, to boost the shine of your hair. One of my favorite uses is in a detox drink, to get the most benefits inside and out!

Sleeping woman on sofa 10. Improves Sleep

Manuka Honey helps to promote restful deep sleep. It slowly releases the glycogen needed for essential bodily functions during sleep. Adding honey to milk at bedtime helps the body release melatonin into the brain which is necessary for deep sleep.

There are many health disorders associated with poor sleep such as, heart disease, type II diabetes, stroke, and arthritis. Since honey is proven to aid in quality sleep; it also helps lower the risk of these and many other heath problems.


Manuka Honey Side Effects

Sources like WebMD claim that people allergic to bees should use Manuka honey with caution due to possible allergic side effects. (14)

Take Manuka with caution if you’re allergic to bees and report any adverse reactions to your natural health care provider immediately.


How to Use Manuka Honey

Greek yogurt with figs and honeyTo experience the most benefit, you should take a dose of about 1-2 tablespoons of Manuka honey a day.  The easiest way is to just take it straight, but if it is a little too sweet for you, then you can add it to your favorite herbal tea, over yogurt, or on sprouted grain toast.

If you want to enhance the immune boosting effect or heal a sore throat, add 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Research shows that the antimicrobial properties of cinnamon and Manuka honey are so powerful, that they can really help you recover fast! (15)

Another great way to take advantage of the healing Manuka honey uses, is to make our  Super Secret Detox Drink, but substitute Manuka honey for stevia.

Pepsi Admits It’s Soda Contains Cancer-Causing Ingredients

Copied from Natural News – Thursday, September 15, 2016 by: Isabelle Z.

Pepsi

(NaturalNews) When the Center for Environmental Health released test results showing that Pepsi intentionally covered up the presence of high levels of 4-Mel in its popular soft drinks in 2013, the company denied both the presence of this chemical in its beverages and the fact that it was dangerous. 4-Mel, which is short for 4-Methylimidazole, is a compound that is formed in the manufacturing of caramel coloring, and is a known carcinogen.

Since then, the drinks maker has fought against complying with California state requirements to place a cancer warning label on the beverages that contain the ingredient, which include not only Pepsi, but also Diet Pepsi and Pepsi One.

Now, a settlement in a class action lawsuit against Pepsi has gained preliminary approval from a federal judge in California. As part of the proposed settlement, Pepsi has agreed to ensure its caramel coloring’s 4-Mel levels do not exceed 100 parts per billion in products that are being shipped for sale within the U.S. They will also be required to test the soda using specific protocols.

The soft drink giant also agreed to these measures in a different lawsuit that was settled in a California state court last year. The new settlement, however, expands the reach of these measures from California to the entire country.

Pepsi failed to warn consumers that its drinks contain known carcinogens

The lawsuit accused Pepsi of failing to warn people that its beverages contain 4-Mel, which California has officially recognized as a cancer-causing chemical.

A 2014 Consumer Reports test showed that the 4-Mel in Pepsi exceeded the permitted level of 29 micrograms per bottle or can, which would mean that they were in violation of common law and consumer protection statutes in the state of California.

In particular, this violates California’s Proposition 65, which has been in place since 1985, and requires manufacturers to provide consumers with clear warnings when their products will expose them to toxic or cancer-causing chemicals.

The state’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment set the cutoff at 29 micrograms because that level creates a risk of cancer of one in 100,000.

Citing a 2013 Mintel and Leatherhead Food Research report, Consumer Reports said that caramel coloring is the world’s most widely used food coloring. At the time, Pepsi tried to say that because Prop 65 refers to exposure per day rather than exposure per can, and that the average amount of diet soda that its drinkers consume daily is less than a can, there was no need to place a warning on it. Consumer Reports disagreed, however.

“No matter how much consumers drink they don’t expect their beverages to have a potential carcinogen in them. And we don’t think 4-MeI should be in foods at all. Our tests of Coke samples show that it is possible to get to much lower levels,” toxicologist Dr. Urvashi Rangan said.

Is drinking soda really worth risking cancer and obesity?

It simply does not make sense for people to expose themselves unnecessarily to an ingredient that merely serves to color their food, and consumers have the right to be aware of what they are putting in their bodies. The popularity of books like Food Forensics serves to illustrate the growing desire by Americans to know what ingredients their food products contain.

The cancer-causing caramel coloring in Pepsi is not the only reason consumers should steer clear of it. Soft drinks are also believed to be behind the nation’s obesity epidemic. A UCLA study found that adults who consumed one sugary drink such as a soda every day had a 27 percent higher likelihood of being classified as overweight than those who did not drink such beverages. Moreover, drinking just one soda each day adds up to a total of 39 pounds of sugar each year! That means that regular soda drinkers can cut their risk of obesity and cancer in one fell swoop simply by giving up the habit for good.

TWO YEARS AGO TODAY MY LIFE CHANGED FOREVER!

TWO YEARS AGO TODAY MY LIFE CHANGED FOREVER! by Bruce McNaughton

My Why – It’s all about God, being the best Husband and the best Father that I once wasn’t….

Few know my story but most don’t as I have had serious poor health throughout my life and now my mission is my fight for True Health! On April 17th, 2012 I was involved in a serious car accident that Changed My World……

Here is my story….
When I was born 1961, I was 2 pound 11 ounces (1.19Kg) and almost 12 weeks early and I was never breast feed as a new born. This was in 1961 and my parents were told if I make it through the weekend then I would live. My Mom and Dad divorced when I was 4 years of age.

In 1975 I made the decision after summer vacation with my Dad to not return to my Mother’s in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. My Dad and my Step Mother travelled frequently and my 2 sisters, 3 step brothers and my half brother and half sister found ourselves fending for ourselves breakfast, lunch and dinner! For myself, my diet was very unhealthy, a fair amount of alcohol, ok a lot of alcohol and recreational drugs…..

In Grammar school and Junior High I played soccer and goalie was my favorite position. With super large hands that can pick up a basketball I was stubborn to not let much by me in the goal.

Prior to my relocation to Connecticut I played in the South Carolina State Tennis Circuit, ran 10 miles a day on the beaches of Hilton Head Island and played Pop Warner Football for the Island Gators.

Our team went All South, we beat the North and lost in the Championship game. I played football in many towns and cities including Paris Island which is the boot camp for the US Marines. In 8th Grade I was drafted by the High School May River Acadamy “A” ranked Football Team. I started and played first string right guard and played 2nd string nose guard. Yes… 8th Grade, 1st String Varsity High School Football in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Unfortunately this school was a segregated school in the south. We played “AAA” Ranked High School Football Teams and got our button kicked most every week We were good though and had a tough team which eventually went on to win the division. We had the likes of players that could kick 55 yard field goals.

In the summer of 1976 I started high school in Fairfield Connecticut and once again played right wing, fullback and goalie for my freshman soccer team.

This where my lifestyle changed and ran wild. In high school I worked at a local hot dog joint that was ranked as one of the top ten hot dog joints in America. I would cook 600 hotdogs on a Saturday and ate 3 or 4 a day…..

In 1979 I had a motorcycle wreck with a lot of road rash and some left knee nerve damage. In 1982 I had a motorcycle wreck and broke my upper arm clean. I had a 1/4″ diameter 11-1/2″ long pin in my right shoulder, upper arm to my right elbow. Truly blessed to have my arm today with full movement.

In 1985 I was working for a machine builder and had a 3000 pound (1360 Kg) steel table fall on me. I also was electrocuted many times in my life. Thanks to God I am here today with my family.

In 1986 I had L5S1 lower back surgery due to my accident.

In 1991 I had L5S1 lower back surgery again due to my previous accident. I had to go thru extensive rehab to regain my balance. The program was 5 hours a day, five days a week for 6 months to learn to rewalk again.

In 1989 I was diagnosed with a very bad case of diverticulitis. I was told by the doctor that I was his youngest but sickest patient every in his career.

In 1993 at the age of 32 I had a perforated colon and had to have emergency surgery to have a colostomy bag. I had lost 52 pounds (23.58 Kg’s) in 16 days. I was virtually dead as my white blood cell count was at 220 million.

Six weeks later I was put back into critical condition to have the colostomy bag removed. I was herniated in several locations before I left the hospital. I was told everything was fine and normal.

In 1995 I had a deviated septum surgery due to horrible headaches for 20 plus years. My headaches were similar to probably many of yours.

I spent many days in the dark, sweating, eyes popping out of my head with these killer headaches. Ice, darkness, coffee, water, soda but nothing helped. My headaches were due to bacteria deep within my nasal passages and severe dehydration. I used the Neti-Pot for 6 months straight twice a day and stopped drinking soda.

In 1996 I had an 11 hour surgery for a very bad arrhythmia condition called Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome (WPW). I subsequently years later I went into A-fib and A-Flutter and had to have my heart stopped in the emergency room. This was the worst experience in my life.

I was then admitted and had my heart shocked back into rhythm. I was give Propofol and had my second heart surgery. My arrhythmia condition worsen after surgery and day by day got worse.

In 1999 I met my beautiful wife Melinda and through the Grace of God I was able to get off 18 to 20 Anvil tablets a day. I had been on long use of anti-inflammatory prescription drugs and then the Anvil over the counter thereafter.

In 2008 I had a hernia rupture which caused emergency surgery to repair the heriation. The hernia was the size of a cantaloupe. Thank God it didn’t kill me.

In 2012 I was involved in a serious car accident which changed my life in a blink of an eye. God surely has my attention. I was in our brand new Toyota Sienna Van Limited and was hit from behind on the rear right by a speeding Ford Expedition doing 50 plus miles per hour. 50% of the windows blew out and wrinkled up to the second row Seating.

Our 3 day old van and the Ford Expedition were totaled. Toyota’s Safety Connect System had every emergency notified within seconds and had all emergency services headed to my location within minutes. I was taken to the hospital by ambulance and shortly released.

My neck and lower back were in bad shape and soon there after sent to rehab. Rehab didn’t work well as it continued to aggravate my back. They applied exercise versus treating me with ice or heat.

This accident woke up the sleeping giant as if my previous back injuries weren’t bad enough. My back was obviously not straight and or in place. Shortly thereafter my lower gave out and I dislocated my lower torso. This happened twice within a half hour.

I thought I was crippled for life as my feet instantly went 75% numb and lost most feeling from the knees down. After ice and rest the result was the front half-full my feet were 75% numb 360 degrees around.

No Neuro Surgeon can tell me where my issue exists and I have been to some of the best in the business.

In 2016 I had 8 incisional hernias repaired and unfortunately failed the same day. Now today I have a 9″ X 7″ piece of mesh with 60 internal staples with a large section not intact. The doctor checked me in and out the same day. I was taken by ambulance the following day only to be checked out and released. I knew something wasn’t right shortly after surgery.

I have spent well over 70 days in the hospital in my adult life with numerous surgeries due to a poor diet, bad choices, industrial accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical caused conditions and a very acidic dehydrated body.

Today I still suffer with several failed incisional hernia surgeries and a poor back after two back surgeries fighting to avoid the big one.

Back in 2014 after my first Hernia repair failure I was having a horrible time. This all took place Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving on Thursday. I took it slow on Thanksgiving and on Friday I started go ogling my condition and came to the conclusion I had an incarcerated hernia.

This is a very serious condition and it can kill you within hours in many cases. I announced I needed to go to YALE Medical Center immediately. We packed up our young children and we rushed to the emergency.

After a many hours of tests, scans and manipulation I was told in fact I was correct and had an incarcerated hernia. I was told to make an appointment immediately with the surgeon. After seeing the surgeon on Monday I was told that I needed a major surgery to correct my deteriorating condition.

The doc told me that I would be out of work for 6 months and healing. If all went well though I maybe able to return to work earlier. The doctor told me that I would need to go see the Plastic Surgeon as the operation was beyond the expert General Surgeon.

A short time later I got into see the Plastic Surgeon and he reiterated the complexity of the procedure and said I would be out for an extended period of time and healing for a year.

Well that completely freaked both Melinda and I out as we were concerned for our family and how the bills were going to be paid. I own a company Grant Mfg. and Grant Riveters which is now in jeopardy and potential going to go out of business due to an extended absence.

My company not only providing for us but it is also very historic as I am Connecticut’s Oldest Machine Tool Builder and the World’s Oldest Riveting Machine Manufacturer.

After we got home from the Plastic Surgeon’s Office Melinda went straight to the computer and started Googling and saying there must be away to help reverse my condition?

This is truly where our journey begins. Four months earlier Melinda and I were in Miami celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary at the Aqualina Resort & Spa for 8 days. Melinda after just a few days in Miami became very ill with a stomach bug and spent most all of our Getaway in bed.

I became tired of the food on site and later in the week hobbled down to the concierge desk to have them drive me to a healthy organic restaurant. Fortunately the driver was out and I was told if I can make it across the street there is a casual organic farm to table restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

So I hobbled across the busy boulevard in the rain almost getting run over to find the restaurant. The restaurant was fabulous and just what I was looking for. Shortly after my Seating my server waiter brought me a glass milk bottle full of water.

He walked away while I picked up my menu and glancing up at the water. Once I saw the water in the glass milk bottle I raised my voice and motioned for my server to return. He asked how he could help? I said what’s up with the water?

I explained, I have traveled extensively and never has anyone ever brought me water in a 1/2 gallons milk bottle. So tell me….? He politely said flip over your menu, so I did and found this write up on Kangen Water. It state; “Kangen Water” in Japanese means “Retun To Origin”

We proudly serve Kangen Water. Water as nature intended! Detoxifies internal organs, high in antioxidants, neutralizes free radicals, promotes good digestion, returns your body to a healthy, alkaline state with increased energy
.
I was like wow that’s unusual. I drank the whole 1/2 gallons and asked for a refill. This was a great restaurant as a man climbed up3 to 4 stairs on a ladder to fill the juicer with fruit. This place had me blown away. Dinnerware fantastic as I had the Mahi Mahi Taco dinner. Wow the citrus lime chutney knocked them out of the park.

I returned in the morning with Melinda as she was feeling better on our last morning prior to departure. I introduced the water to her over breakfast.

We returned to Connecticut and Google Drive it more but that was it until 4 months later when we returned from the Plastic Surgeon’s Office. Melinda was Googling and Googling and after all her searches was directed by our Lord back to the water.

She said your buy this machine for Christmas! I said our you sure. She said you have tried endlessly to improve your health with no success. Yes, we need to try this.

Well I the engineer that knows everything was very skeptical to say the least. I went back to work and Googled it too and was directed to Rhonda Gessner as my distributor. I went home and over the next few days and weeks I kept asking Melinda what we were going to do for Christmas? I got the same answer but looking for a different answer.

I was told if you have a problem paying for the machine then finance it. I said I can go up to the corner store and buy a few thousand bottles of water for that price. I was having an issue with the two cases of Fiji Water Melinda was buying each week never the less the cases of Aquafina for me.

So that day I picked up the phone and spoke to Ron and Rhonda Gessner in Lancaster PA and was given the finance company information. I called the finance company up but after a few minutes I thanked them and said no thank you.

I’m pretty tight! I called back Ron and Rhonda several times and made sure they knew I was returning this machine before 30 days. They told me in a nervous voice that less then 1% of these machines are returned and that they have never had one returned. They stated that they had sold well over 500 and close to a 1000 machines. Hmmmm

They both were very polite and always praise God. I remember saying to myself and then Melinda that the Gessner’s were very religious. I thought it was an act in the beginning but finally stated to Melinda that they are the real deal.

I was still adamant that I would be returning the water machine.
A week later I purchased via credit card the Enagic SD501. It arrived on Christmas Eve and on Christmas we opened the package and I installed it 10 minutes later.

…….And here is my AMAZING JOURNEY

I have had such AMAZING RESULTS since Christmas of 2014. I stop and think about all that has changed since I started drinking Kangen Water and taking Kangen UKON Sigma – TURMERIC!

I went to CVS pharmacy to pick up a new prescription for my heart arrhythmia that only needs to be taken if I go into an arrhythmia A Flutter condition. I use to have problems daily.

Since i have been off all my medicine I have not had one heart arrhythmia issue since. When I gave my name to the young gal at the counter she went to the RX bin and came back with a handful of Prescriptions. I politely told her that I don’t need all those prescriptions any more.
