Violence and Brain Starvation

VIOLENT BEHAVIOR MAY WELL BE THE RESULT OF BRAIN STARVATION

Tony's picture 2 from PeggyThis is not “news.” I’ve been saying it for decades, as have countless nutritional researchers and clinicians the world over. Dr. Royal Lee, called the “Einstein of Nutrition” and the “Father of Holistic Nutrition,” proved it out a century ago. Oh, medical science is so slow in arriving at the truth; so full between its ears of its own mind-made intelligence and arrogance that it hasn’t been able to hear the truth. Read the article and learn the facts about the truth of the matter — that is if you don’t already know them. (My apologies to my already awake, aware and informed readers.)

Dr. Weston Price, like Dr. Royal Lee, was a dental physician who considered teeth but a reflection of total body health, being a part of the body itself. Dr. Lee’s approach was to feed the body nutrient rich foods and in that you heal the teeth. In his own words:

One of the greatest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition. It’s the substitution of artificial therapy over natural, of poisons over food, in which we are feeding people poisons trying to correct the reactions of starvation. (click to hear his voice).

A contemporary colleague of Dr. Lee, Dr. Price spent his years researching, documenting an publishing scientific information on the impact of nutrition on health and disease. So, your brain is in good hands here. Enjoy this article from the Weston A. Price Foundation.

WASHINGTON, DC,, Aug. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Deficiencies of vitamins A, D, K, B1, B3, B6, B12 and folate, and of minerals iodine, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, chromium and manganese can all contribute to mental instability and violent behavior, according to a report published in the Spring 2013 issue of Wise Traditions, the journal of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

The article, Violent Behavior: A Solution in Plain Sight by Sylvia Onusic, PhD, CNS, LDN, seeks reasons for the increase in violent behavior in America, especially among teenagers.

“We can blame violence on the media and on the breakdown of the home,” says Onusic, “but the fact is that a large number of Americans, living mostly on devitalized processed food, are suffering from malnutrition.  In many cases, this means their brains are starving.”

In fact, doctors are seeing a return of nutritional deficiency diseases such as scurvy and pellagra, which were declared eradicated long ago by public health officials.  Many of these conditions cause brain injuries as well.

Symptoms of pellagra, for example, include anxiety, hyperactivity, depression, fatigue, headache, insomnia and hallucinations. Pellagra is a disease caused by deficiency of vitamin B3.  Zinc deficiency is linked with angry, aggressive, and hostile behaviors that result in violence.  The best dietary sources of zinc are red meat and shellfish.

Leaky gut and gluten sensitivities may exacerbate nutrient deficiencies.  Gluten intolerance is strongly linked with schizophrenia.

Things have gotten even worse since Lee’s and Price’s day with all the chemicals we now have and are adding to our foods, such as MSG and Aspartame, to enhance flavor and attack obesity. Little wonder our guts are eroding and leaking undigested proteins into our blood streams, the underlying cause of food sensitivities and allergies. Read on.

“Making things worse are excitotoxins so prevalent in the food supply, such as MSG and Aspartame,” says Onusic.  “People who live on processed food and who drink diet sodas are exposed to these mind-altering chemicals at very high levels.” In an effort to curb child obesity, the dairy industry recently petitioned FDA to include aspartame and other artificial sweeteners in dairy beverages featured in school lunches, without appropriate labeling. Recent research has established the fact that aspartame actually leads to weight gain because of its effect on insulin.

Other ingredients in the food supply linked to violent behavior include sugar, artificial colors and flavorings, caffeine, alcohol and soy foods. The toxic environmental burden includes mercury, arsenic, lead, fire retardants, pesticides, heavy metals and Teflon.  Adding psychiatric drugs to this mix puts everyone at risk.

Whole foods is the only answer, and you won’t get what your body and brain need from synthetic, isolated vitamins in a “one-a-day” Centrum tablet, or gummy bears. Only from food-based nutritional therapy using whole-food supplements.

“The only solution to the mounting levels of violence is a return to real, nutrient-dense food,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “We must create a culture in which eating processed food is seen as uncool, and in which home cooking is embraced as a life-enhancing skill.”

The Weston A. Price Foundation has pointed out the poor nutritional quality of school lunches and the flaws in the USDA dietary guidelines, which schools receiving federal funding are required to follow.  At a press conference in January, 2010, the Foundation proposed guidelines that include eggs, organ meats and healthy animal fats.  “Our brains need cholesterol to function properly,” said Fallon Morell, “and our children need cholesterol-rich food for optimal mental and emotional development.” Studies have shown that depressed individuals, offenders who show the most violent behavior, and the most violent suicides have low cholesterol levels.

That’s not surprising, as the brain is one big mass of cholesterol, the stuff cardiologists of today are trying to reduce in Americans with their Statin drugs. I say “Americans” because it’s only in America, where drug companies make Statin drugs, that cholesterol has become a “marker” in diagnosing coronary heart distease — and it became a marker just about the same time Statin drugs appeared on the market. Not only does medicine create drugs for diseases; it also invents diseases for its drugs! Wake up Americans!

If you want the premier hallmark wholefood supplement Dr. Royal Lee formulated and made available to the world called “CATALYN,” drop me an email and I’ll mail you a large bottle (360T for $45), postage included. That’s a 60-day supply if you’re deficient and a 120 days supply if you only need maintenance and insurance against malnutrition.

Acid Indigestion and GERD

Don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough with TV commercials selling drugs.  If it’s not Nexium, it’s Prilosec or Prevacid for indigestion and GERD.  Then there are the erectile dysfunction drugs with warnings to men with hypertension and prolonged erections. And don’t you just love the monotone side-effect warnings drug ads add onto the commercial with pleasant music playing so you’re led to think this is a good thing and not harmful.  Don’t they know most of us just mute our TV’s during commercials? Apparently these commercials work because the drug companies keep doling out millions to television stations and show billions of dollars in sales and profits.  And they even tell lies to program people to think within the box of the medical model.

 One Prevacid commercial shows a graphic of the inside wall of the stomach pumping digestive juices into it and states that this purple pill stops the stomach pumps from doing their job.  The lie is that they state that these secretions are what cause “acid indigestion,” and this is simply not true.  It’s the acids of fermenting foods that cause indigestion and “heart burn” that leads to GERD, or “acid reflux,” and not the digestive acids which the lining of the stomach is designed to handle.  It can’t handle fermenting acids which burn the tissues of the  stomach and the “cardiac valve” leading from the esophagus into the stomach.  This fermentation burns the upper region of the stomach near the heart.  That’s why we call it “heart burn.”  It’s not the heart that’s burning but the cardiac valve (named for its close proximity to the lower tip of the heart).  The valve gets soft, looses its tone, so that it can’t close tight.  The result is GERD.   

Fermentation occurs when foods stop digesting due to diluted stomach acids (Betaine Hydrochloride).  Dilution of stomach digestive acids — in anyone under 45 years of age — is caused by improper food combining — mixing sweets and starches with meats primarily — or by a lack of pepsin and ptyaln amylase, enzymes from the salivary glands that, when mixed with foods in the mouth while chewing it thoroughly, activate acid and alkaline digestive juices respectively so that the proteins get broken down and digested and the starches get converted to sugar, a process that actually starts in the mouth.  Chew on your french fries long enough and they’ll turn sweet in your mouth.  Without the salivary enzyme ptylan amylase starches will ferment in the stomach.  This will occur if you eat too fast — like on the run — or wash you food down with a soda, or even water, without chewing it properly.  

Eating while under stress is a frequent cause of indigestion these days, simply because stress shuts down the digestive system.  The body doesn’t want food while it’s under attack.  It wants to run away from the treat, real or imagined, or at least fight back and defend itself against attack — again, real or imagined.  So it switches from nourishing and growth mode to defense and survival. 

You see, indigestion can be prevented simply by eating properly and enjoying your meal with a relaxed composure.  And if you’re over 45, your stomach just doesn’t produce as much Hydrochloric acid as it did when you were younger with abusive eating habits wearing out  your stomach’s acid pumps.  So you need to take ZYPAN, a digestive enzyme with activated  Betaine Hydrochloride made by Standard Process Labs out of Palmyra, Wisconsin.  Drop me an email and I’ll mail a few bottles to you. A large bottle of 330  tablets is only $40 and their 90 tablet bottle is $12.50 (add $13 for drop-shipping).

Watch this short video:

If you want a correct remedy for indigestion and acid reflux,  add some Betaine Hydrochloride to the fermenting contents of your stomach to start up the digestive process.  That’s right, add acid to your stomach, only the right kind.  Two ZYPAN tablets will do the trick nicely.  

One caution: if your stomach has an ulcer from whatever cause, you don’t want to put Hydrochloride in your stomach.  You’ll have to take “GASTREX” (2 just before eating) for a couple of weeks to heal up the ulceration first, then you can take ZYPAN.  Add a couple of CHLOROPYLL COMPLEX PERLES” on an empty stomach and heal it up even faster.  Chlorophyll is Mother Nature’s healing balm.  It will stop pain immediately upon contact.  Best remedy for burns, too.  You can get it in a tube from Standard Process through a licensed health practitioner . . .  such as myself. (-: 

This is the truth of the matter.  Let’s have an end to drug commercials that tell lies.  Let’s have an end to them period.  Of course, that may mean an end to some of my favorite programs, like national news programs. We love the Turner Classics, especially since they’re commercial-free.  (-:

I always love hearing from my readers.  What are your thoughts on this subject?  Any suggestions on possible topics for future posts?  With readers of my blogs in 47 countries now, surely someone would like to share their thoughts.  See you in two weeks with another Health Light Newsletter post. ‘Til then,

To your health and healing,

Dr. Anthony Palombo
