Learn To Meditate Quickly and Effectively Over the years I have been a strong supporter of the health benefits of meditation. It is a therapy that I regularly recommend to my patients and personally practice myself. The medical research on the health benefits of meditation span almost 70 years in Western medicine and go back thousands of years into antiquity all the way back to the earliest Egyptian and Babylonian writings. As good as meditation is however most Americans have a very hard time actually meditating. There are many meditation CDs and other programs out there teaching various meditation techniques. Among them are guided imagery, self-realization, inner journey and even astral projection techniques. Even with all the technology that we have today Americans find it very difficult to just let their mind go quiet and to meditate. Therefore meditation always seems like it's more complicated than it actually is. Over the years I have used a number of different meditation techniques with the idea of making them simple enough that anyone would be able to meditate and feel the benefits within 10-15 minutes. To make a long story short I have been asked many times to offer a meditation class and I finally have the time to be able to do that. The Introduction to Meditation class will be held on October 11 - Wednesday - at 6:30. - 7:30 PM. You do not need to be a patient of mine in order to participate in the class. The class will consist of: Brief lecture on what meditation is and how it actually works Breathing exercises to learn how to breathe correctly to reduce stress and stimulate a good meditative state Meditation techniques themselves will be taught and practiced. Just given the size limitations of my office the class will be limited to about 20 individuals and there will be a cost of $10 for the class as well as handout materials.

From Miracles or I Have No More Boils “…We cannot depend on the current medical system to cure chronic disease. It simply is not designed to do that (explained in later chapters). Each patient must become the creator of their own health. Many of my patients have traveled long and far in the traditional and non-traditional medical systems before ending up at my door…hoping for a miracle….I often tell them that I can help but that they are the creator of their own miracles….God has never needed to perform individual miracles because He built them into the system, into all of us….This means that we all have the ability to self-heal, to transform ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually…are discovering and capitalizing on our own inner strength to heal and grow…the knowledge from billions of humbler healing miracles are accumulating and causing a profound metamorphosis in our understanding and treatment of chronic illness and, ultimately, our society…That, my brothers and sisters, is true freedom and has been a discovery over 10,000 years in the making…You are the creator of your miracles and it is you who, on all counts, is responsible for your own health…we experiencing the new “Age of Miracles” where everything is a miracle, we are creating it!"

VITAMIN K2 AND STATINS I recently read an excellent medical research paper suggesting that statin medication use, instead of reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, may indirectly increase it. The reason is because of the interactions of statins with various metabolic pathways involving vitamin K-2. This is important because low levels of vitamin K-2 are associated with an increased risk of not only severe coronary artery disease (CAD) but also type II diabetes and mortality. Vitamin K is not a single vitamin but is composed of a number of different forms. They are considered to be fat-soluble vitamins and are required by the body for a number of different biochemical reactions including blood clotting, calcium balance, energy production and the creation of powerful antioxidants. Vitamin K-1 is found primarily in leafy green vegetables and its main function is in the production of blood clotting proteins. In contrast, there are many different forms of vitamin K-2. Vitamin K-2 can be made from vitamin K-1 by many different organs in the body. It is also made in several different forms by the bacteria in the bowel. Vitamin K-3 is no longer used to treat vitamin K deficiency because of associated toxicities. The article was published in the medical journal Pharmacology in 2016. A large group of researchers from several universities in Japan explained that many of the mechanisms associated with the prevention of CAD are vitamin K-2 dependent. That means that low a level of vitamin K-2 may increase the risk of severe coronary artery disease. They also discussed the fact that statin medications inhibit the production of vitamin K-2. It is well-known that statin medications reduce the production of a very specific compound called coenzyme Q 10. However they also reduce the production of other coenzyme Q 10 look-a-like compounds that are essential for vitamin K-2 to reduce the risk of severe coronary artery disease (CAD). In addition, statin medications directly inhibit the conversion of vitamin K-1 to vitamin K-2. The end result is a significant increase in the risk of both the development and severity of CAD. It is also well-known that there is an association between type II diabetes and CAD. According to the FDA, there is increased risk of type II diabetes in patients taking statin medications. Statin medications also inhibit specific compounds needed for the utilization of insulin by the body. What was of interest is that the very same coenzyme Q like compounds that are necessary for vitamin K2 are also necessary for the utilization of insulin. This is not to say that statin medication should be discontinued. Indeed there is substantial data supporting their use for reducing the risk of repeat heart attack or stroke. This data does indicate however that nutritional supplementation with specifically vitamin K-2 may significantly improve both short-term and long-term health of patients with CAD and/or type II diabetes who are currently taking statin medications. • Patrick B.

The problem with health care is not that there is not enough is that there are too many people with chronic illnesses. Once that is addressed, there will be no problem with healthcare.

GRAPESEED EXTRACT AND CANCER Albert Einstein once said “Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.” In regards to the prevention and treatment of cancer we are discovering that the foods we eat may have significant impact. A case in point is grapeseed extract. Over the past ten years, a number of medical studies have demonstrated that grapeseed extract, at least in animal models, can have significant impact on a number of different cancers. Although there are no compelling human clinical studies, grapeseed extract in the animal models of cancer are quite positive. Grapeseed extract as the name implies comes from grapeseed. This particular product is very rich in a number of vitamins as well as other biologically active compounds such as flavonoids, procyanidins and resveratrol. Although most of the research into grapeseed extract has been done in animal models, grapeseed extract seems to have a positive effect throughout the entire body. For example, in animals it has been shown to increase bone density. There is some data indicating that it also is effective at preventing tooth decay and reducing blood pressure. It does exhibit some antibacterial and antiviral activity in a test tube. Most importantly grapeseed extract seems to retired cancer cell growth both in the test tube and in animal models. A number of studies over the years have demonstrated that it inhibits the growth of cancer cell lines of lung, breast, prostate and colon cancers. Some of the most interesting anticancer research has explored the aromatase inhibiting activity of grapeseed extract and its effect on breast cancer cell growth. One older study published in 2006 demonstrated that grapeseed extract has significant aromatase inhibiting activity and suppresses the growth of breast cancer cells in the mouse model for breast cancer. Aromatase is an enzyme that, basically, converts testosterone into estrogen. Many types of breast cancer are stimulated by estrogen and have a very active aromatase enzyme system. In traditional medicine some chemotherapy agents inhibit the activity of the aromatase enzyme and through that inhibition slow or prevent the growth of estrogen sensitive breast cancer cells. This 2006 study, published in Cancer Research, demonstrated that grapeseed extract has significant aromatase inhibiting activity and greatly reduced the growth of breast cancer cells in mice that are genetically designed to develop breast cancer. Since this is study was published, dozens of other studies have demonstrated that many plants inhibit aromatase activity and may be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of a number of different cancers including breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer. Even though grapeseed extract may inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells, I do not endorse it as sole treatment for breast cancer. In addition there is always concern as to how grapeseed extract E the medications even though the current data indicates that it is quite safe. A medical physician, board-certified in integrative medicine would be able to provide the best recommendations for the use of grapeseed extract during chemotherapy.
