Got pain?

GOT PAIN? Get It Gone Naturally!

October is not only Breast Cancer Prevention month but also Non-GMO Awareness month. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are laboratory creations in which genes from one source (animal, plant, or a chemical like pesticide) are spliced into another animal, plant, or even human gene. The greatest exponent of this new bio-engineering is a multi-national corporation called Monsanto.

We have all heard of the Bovine Growth Hormone (rBrH). The r stands for recombinant which means the hormone does not exist in nature. It was designed to boost a cow’s milk production which it does. It can also makes the cow very sick within a short time and the resultant infection shows up in the milk. When ingested it causes inflammation in the consumer—child or adult. It goes a long way in explaining why dairy products have become one of the top food allergens in the last twenty five years. It is not simply lactose intolerance. Wonder where all the gluten intolerance came from? In exactly the same time frame, grains what were benign, have now become the cause of a myriad bowel tract disorders like Crohns disease, irritable bowel disease, and colitis.

Just ask a medical doctor why these rare conditions have proliferated since the nineteen nineties. If you don’t like the answer, then Love Whole Foods Market invites you to join a community event being held at the Cinematique Theatre on Beach Street (near International Speedway Blvd.) in downtown Daytona Beach. On Monday, October 28 at 7 p.m. we will be showing: Genetic Roulette free! The movie features critical insights by our own local Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O. (mercola.com) as well as narration by Mrs. Liz Oz of Doctor Oz fame. Although the movie is guaranteed to elicit a gut reaction, its purpose is to educate and provide solutions.

One outstanding nutraceutical which is particularly good at reducing gut inflammation is curcumin derived from the spice Turmeric. Dr. Oz, M.D. and Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D. have been singing the praises of this spice found in Indian and Thai cuisine. The element of the plant that gives curry its golden color, is a rhizome or tuber from the root called curcumin. This bio-active ingredient has now been isolated and potentiated. “These include everything from heart attacks to a dozen types of cancer, the pain of all types of arthritis and even “incurable” diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.” That quote was made by Dr. Janet McBarron, M.D., N.D. from her latest publication: Curcumin-The 21st Century Cure. It helps depression and soothes the agony of a variety of digestive disorders including Crohn’s disease and I.B.S.. Curcumin is comparable with standard medical treatment and has no side effects.

Curcumin benefits have been well documented. It was not until EuroPharma (sold under the trade name Terry Naturally) developed a patented pharmaceutical grade curcumin called BCM-95 did we overcome the poor absorption rates which had previously hindered consistent results. BCM-95 is up to ten times more absorbable than standard curcumin extracts. Just as important, BCM-95 stays in the bloodstream 8 to 10 hours. This is far longer than any other curcumin currently available. These results were clearly elucidated by the research being done at Baylor University Medical Center, Houston, Texas. “Because BCM-95 amplifies and potentiates curcumin’s effectiveness, we selected it to be used in our clinical study on the effect of curcumin in relation to fighting cancer.” Reports Dr. Ajay Goel, Ph.D., Director of the Gastrointestinal Cancer Research Lab at Baylor. Their results using this form of curcumin clearly shows its effectiveness in improving patient quality of life (pain relief) for cancer victims while also helping to actively fight the cancer and act as a preventative.

So who is this Terry in Terry Naturally? None other than Terry Lemerond, original founder of Enzymatic Therapy. He formulated the first standardized St. John’s Wort (for depression), Black Cohosh (for hot flashes) and, of course, he single handedly put Echinacea on the medical map. His standardized Saventaro cat’s claw remains, in my experience, unequaled in Lyme disease pain management verses any drug. Terry Lemerond established production methods that allowed nutraceuticals to be manufactured to pharmaceutical standards. Clinical studies can now be done with standardized nutraceuticals as well as with pharmaceutical drugs. This is why Baylor University and other medical institutions like M.D. Anderson are now doing nutraceutical research.

I have known Terry personally for over two decades. Our store was the first to carry Enzymatic Therapy products in north Florida. We now carry his Terry Naturally line featuring an entire family of BCM-95 products.
