Editor’s Note:

This Monthp

F

or the poet John Keats, Autumn may always be the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” but naturally enough for Janey Lee Grace, after the BAFTAS and the Oscars, the Emmys and the Oliviers, it is the time to recognise excellence and innovation in eco products and treatments, books and organisations. All are honoured in this issue. And speaking of Honours: October 27 is Natural Ayurveda Day and this year it is marked by a ‘maiden speech’ on the subject, in the House of Lords no less, by UKHR’s one and only Johann Ilgenfritz! The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence - or NICE, for short – is committed to evidence-based quality standards in health care. In practice, this includes ensuring the best value treatments for the NHS. Funds are limited while patient demands are potentially limitless, so ‘alternative’ options tend to excluded. As a result, ‘rationing’ is inevitable and as a result of that, self-funding appeals for ‘alternatives’ become relevant. In this issue, we introduce the ‘My friend Myrian’ Appeal. In later editions, Myrian will share sequentially various aspects of her recovery from Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) caused by contracting viral meningitis a year or so ago. Her target is £5K to cover Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Yoga Nidra. Myrian is already a quarter of the way towards it. If everyone who expressed sympathy for her condition were to donate the cost of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine to the ‘My friend Myrian APPEAL’ she would reach her target in next to no time! Please check it out for yourself on www.gofundme.com Thank you

Do you have a

Common cold?

cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways. It’s very common and  usually  clears up on its own within a week or two.

A

More severe symptoms, including a high temperature (fever), headache and aching muscles can also occur, although these tend to be associated more with flu.

The main symptoms of a cold include: • a sore throat • a blocked or runny nose • sneezing • a cough

The symptoms of a cold usually develop within a few days of becoming infected. The main symptoms include: • a sore throat • a blocked or runny nose

Symptoms of a cold


• sneezing • a cough • a hoarse voice • generally feeling unwell Less common symptoms of a cold include: • a high temperature (fever) – this is usually about 3739C (98.6-102.2F) • a headache • earache – severe earache may be a sign of a middle ear infection • muscle pain • loss of taste and smell • mild irritation of your eyes • a feeling of pressure in your ears and face The symptoms are usually at their worst during the first two to three days, before they gradually start to improve. In adults and older children, they usually last about 7 to 10 days, but can last longer. A cough in particular can last for two or three weeks. Colds tend to last longer in younger children who are under five, typically lasting around 10 to 14 days. Read more about colds in children.

What to do

There’s no cure for a cold, but you can look after yourself at home by: • resting, drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthily • taking over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, to reduce any fever or discomfort • using  decongestant sprays or tablets to relieve a blocked nose • trying remedies such as  gargling salt water and sucking on menthol sweets Many painkillers and decongestants are available from pharmacies without a prescription. They’re generally safe for older children and adults to take, but might not be suitable for babies, young children, pregnant women, people with certain underlying health conditions, and those taking certain other medications. Speak to a pharmacist if you’re unsure.

When to see your GP

If you or your child has a cold, there’s usually no need to see your GP as it should clear within a week or two. You only really need to contact your GP if: • your symptoms persist for more than three weeks • your symptoms get suddenly worse • you have breathing difficulties • you develop complications of a cold, such as chest pain or coughing up bloodstained mucus It might also be a good idea to see your GP if you’re

concerned about your baby or an elderly person, or if you have a long-term illness such as a lung condition.

How do colds spread?  In general, a person becomes contagious from a few days before their symptoms begin until all of their symptoms have gone. This means most people will be infectious for around two weeks. You can catch the virus from an infectious person by: • touching an object or surface contaminated by infected droplets and  then touching your mouth, nose or eyes • touching the skin of someone who has the infected droplets on their skin and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes • inhaling tiny droplets of fluid that contain the cold virus  –  these are launched into the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes Colds spread most easily among groups of people in constant close contact, such as families and children in school or day care facilities. They’re also more frequent during the winter, although it’s not clear exactly why. A number of different viruses can cause a cold, so it’s possible to have several colds one after the other, as each one may be caused by a different virus.

How can I stop a cold spreading? You can take some simple steps to help prevent the spread of a cold. For example: • wash your hands  regularly, particularly  before touching your nose or mouth and before handling food • always sneeze and cough into tissues – this will help prevent the virus-containing droplets from your nose and mouth entering the air, where they can infect others; you should  throw away used tissues immediately and wash your hands  • clean surfaces regularly to keep them free of germs  • use your own cup, plates, cutlery and kitchen utensils • don’t share towels or toys with someone who has a cold It’s been suggested that vitamin C,  zinc  and garlic supplements may help reduce your risk of getting a cold, but there’s currently not enough strong evidence to support this. p

UK Health Radio is delighted to introduce Medichecks as a new station sponsor. In this article UK Health Radio founder Johann Ilgenfritz gets the low-down on the business and her personal motivation from director Helen Marsden. Johann: Tell me about Medichecks – what service are you providing? Helen: Medichecks is an online provider of blood tests and health checks which are available to everyone, wherever they are in the UK. Most of our tests can be done at home with a fingerHelen Marsden prick sample collection kit. You can order online, take your sample at home and simply post it to our laboratory. Results are available online in your own personal dashboard within a matter of days. We sell over 1200 different tests, from simple markers like vitamin D to comprehensive health checks to more specialist tests and profiles. There really is a test for everyone on our website. Johann: How did you get involved with Medichecks? Are you from a medical background? Helen: I’m a bit like you Johann. I don’t have a medical background, but instead have a deep interest in health, in my case, it wasn’t triggered by a life event, but more a lifelong interest in preventative health. From a young age I would be reading about the role of diet and lifestyle in disease prevention and healthy aging. This was my motivation for getting involved with Medichecks: I would read books about inflammation, homocysteine, vitamin D, you name it, I read it! And I wanted to have the blood tests they talked about to make sure that my own markers were in the optimal range for excellent health. In the UK this was virtually impossible; I couldn’t just walk into a lab and order a blood test, I would have to go my GP (who had neither the time nor the budget for the tests I wanted) or pay for an expensive private consultation first. I left the City with the intention of starting a business providing blood tests direct-tothe-consumer. I figured that if I wanted them, there

was probably a universe of health conscious people who wanted them too. When doing my research into the market, I came across Medichecks, persuaded my family business to buy the company, and have been busy growing the business and the market for consumer health tests ever since. Johann: How would you describe your mission? Helen: Our mission is to make easy, affordable and reliable blood tests available to everyone. Every day we help people get the answers they need to take control of their own health. Whether they want to investigate symptoms, check that a condition running in the family doesn’t affect them, or simply want a general health check for peace of mind; often the answer can be found in a blood test provided by Medichecks. Johann: So why would someone choose to get their blood tested at Medichecks instead of going to their GP? Helen: Three reasons: convenience, convenience and convenience! Why take the morning off work when almost all our tests can be conducted in the comfort of your own home? Seriously though, while convenience is a major factor there are other reasons too. In a stretched NHS, tight budgets mean that some of the tests our customers want aren’t even available on the NHS. For example, many of our customers are thyroid sufferers; they can only get 2 very basic tests from the NHS, but we offer full panels of thyroid hormones and thyroid antibodies as well as nutritional tests which impact thyroid performance. When people can’t get the answers they need from their GP, they become experts on their own conditions, and we can help them with the tests they need to monitor and manage their health. Johann: So do you see your service as a replacement to the NHS? Helen: No, not at all. We aren’t providing a clinical service and we don’t attempt to diagnose or treat. Our aim is to help keep people out of their doctor’s surgery by giving


them information about their health early enough to take preventative action. I see us as a service which complements the NHS; helping to identify conditions like diabetes and high cholesterol in time to turn these conditions around through lifestyle changes before a lifetime on medication is needed. Johann: Can the results be taken to the doctor? Will they recognise them? Helen: Yes, although we would never share results with anyone, we encourage people to take any abnormal results to their doctor. The Medichecks doctors will review and interpret all abnormal results and let you know what action to take. Sometimes this will be lifestyle adjustments, sometimes a repeat test for clarification but often we suggest you see your GP for further investigation. Because our laboratories are fully accredited most GP’s will accept the results. Some may want to repeat the test for confirmation but that’s good clinical practice anyway; sometimes results can be abnormal for completely innocent reasons and a repeat test can be entirely normal. Johann: You’ve talked about some of your tests like vitamin D and thyroid but what are your most popular tests?

Helen: We have a great range of comprehensive health checks which are always popular, as well as hormone checks, nutritional tests, and tests for specific concerns like liver function, heart disease or kidney health. And every so often something like the Zika virus comes along which worries people – our test is especially popular with young couples who have travelled to an affected area and want to get the all-clear before starting a family. Johann: So out of 1200 tests, which is the test you are most likely to take? Helen: Oh that’s easy! Like you Johann I’m a vegan which means that I don’t get vitamin B12 from my diet as it is only available in animal products. I take vitamin B12 supplements and I test my active B12 twice a year to make sure I’m getting enough. Lack of vitamin B12 can lead to all sorts of health issues from fatigue to neurological damage and vegans are one group that is at risk of being deficient. I make sure it doesn’t happen to me me through our simple affordable blood test I can do at home.

Unlocking the Secrets of the

Mediterranean by Katharine Tate

I

n our quest for the ‘ideal’ diet and optimal health the Mediterranean diet has long been recognised as an influential model for a number of reasons but one key component that appears across the Mediterranean and has been widely researched is Olive Oil. Two leading experts in this field, Judy Ridgway  and  Miguel Toribio-Mateas  are great advocates of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet and their knowledge and expertise is hugely insightful. Judy  Ridgway is an acclaimed food writer and international expert on olive oil. She started her career as a wine writer and tasting olive oil became an area of natural progression. As the first nonItalian judge for the prestigious Leone d’Oro Awards Judy clearly is an expert and has recently published  ‘The Olive Oil Diet’ book with Dr. Simon Poole, which takes an authoritative look at the science behind the headlines. Olive oil has traditionally been considered a health food and over the years scientific research has started to evidence its benefits. Information about

fats and olive oil has changed since general guidance in the 60’s and 70’s that unsaturated fats were more beneficial for our health than saturated fats. Fats can be divided into saturated fats, such as dairy produce, butter and lard and unsaturated fats. These unsaturated fats can be split into monounsaturated fats, such as avocado and olive oil and polyunsaturated fats, which come from seeds such as sunflower oil and corn oil. A great deal of research has centred around unsaturated fats and the benefits of monosaturated fats. In 2012 The European Union  attributed a health claim to extra virgin olive oil suggesting 2-3 tablespoons a day can be beneficial for cardiovascular health. Other olive oil research has centred on diabetes, Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is thought to be beneficial for diabetes as olive oil helps to reduce the glycaemic index (release of sugar) of food, therefore reducing spikes in blood sugar levels. The synergy between olive oil and different foods is also interesting as it can serve to protect foods, such as meat/fish when heating and when cooked with certain foods like peppers it is thought to increase the health benefits of both the oil and vegetables.


Judy explains that the benefits of the oil are not altered if served hot or cold unless the oil is heated to smoke point. The temperature of smoke point alters from oil to oil but generally in a domestic kitchen it’s unlikely cooking will reach that point. Its worth noting that if you cook with polyunsaturated oils such as corn, sunflower, safflower oils they do have high smoke points but cannot be used as many times as olive oil so they don’t last as long and they do not have the health benefits of olive oil. Other polyunsaturated nut oils like walnut and hemp have low smoke points. As you can imagine just like wine not all olive oils are equal and the different types alongside their health benefits can be hugely variable. The key difference is between ordinary olive oil and extra virgin olive oil. Ordinary olive oil has been refined and flavoured and therefore undergone a level of processing which affects its range of nutrients and also taste. Olive oil is still beneficial as it does contains fats but research is highlighting the natural completeness of extra virgin olive oil and its range of nutrients, which has been associated with its increased health benefits. With this in mind Judy Ridgway suggests consumers should pay a little more for their extra virgin olive oil, which will generally last 18 months before opened, should be kept at room temperature and used up within a couple of months. Miguel is a health professional specialising in nutrition for healthy ageing and cognitive enhancement whose research interest lies in neuroscience, the gut-brain communication, and psychoneuroimmunology. He is fluent in 4 languages and loves food and being born and raised in Spain, Miguel has a real affinity with the Mediterranean way of life. He moved to the UK over 20 years ago and when he returns home his parents still eat the diet he was raised on. Being in their 80’s they are fantastic role models for both the Mediterranean diet and way of life.

He explains that olive oil is a main component of the diet and a powerful antioxidant that specifically acts as an antidote to cholesterol. When individuals have high LDL (often expressed as ‘bad’) cholesterol and possibly low HDL (often expressed as ‘healthy’) cholesterol LDL can oxidise in the body. Olive oil has been shown to be one of those foods that specifically reduces oxidation. By protecting our cardiovascular systems the benefits are far reaching including supporting brain oxygen levels and therefore cognition. Miguel also points out that advice about low fat diets hasn’t had the effect that was intended since that advice was given. The Mediterranean diet is typically not a low fat diet though it also isn’t necessarily high in fat. Research around the Mediterranean diet started in the 1960’s through the Seven Countries Study  investigating diet and lifestyle along with other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, across contrasting countries and cultures and over an extended period of time. This has been followed by the PREDIMED    study, which has been used as a basis for a great deal of research and is an area, which attracts on-going interest. Though the benefits are widely proven with a recent  study  highlighting the benefits of a Mediterranean diet for those living in the UK as a factor for reducing cardiovascular risk and prevention, aside from the diet the whole lifestyle should not be forgotten as all these factors have an impact. For Miguel the Mediterranean lifestyle includes movement, family support, family mealtimes, the climate and weather, importance of socialising and the different way emotions are expressed.

Miracle cure? Panacea? The long awaited answer to ageing?

NADH Part 2

ICMAN PROCEEDINGS

International Conference on Mechanisms and Actions of Nutraceuticals, Krems, Danube, October 6-9, 2002 The International Academy of Tumor Marker Oncology Inc. Publishers

Stabilized NADH improves the physical and mental performance in highly conditioned athletes G.D. Birkmayer and K. Nadlinger Dept. Research & Development, Birkmayer Laboratories (Vienna, Austria) In 1995 a study was conducted among competitive-level cyclists and long distance runners taking ENADA/NADH. A significant range of performance improvements was recorded such as increased oxygen capacity, decreased reaction time and greater mental acuity. Based on these results a double blind, placebo-controlled cross-over study was organized at the Department of Sports Medicine of the University Clinic in Freiburg, Germany with the new sublingual NADH formulation (ENADAlert) with highly conditioned athletes who were given 30 mg tablets ENADAlert for one month. Their performance was measured by spiroergometry at baseline and after the one month treatment period. Fourteen -1 -1 athletes (18 to 49 years, VO 2 max, 55 ml x kg x min ) were tested. Placebo or ENADAlert (30mg/day) was given for four weeks. After a six weeks wash-out period, subjects of the placebo group received ENADAlert and the ENADAlert group received placebo. The performance tests were done at the beginning and after the intervention phase always with two examinations before and after the cross-over. The maximum aerobic capacity was determined. Side effects, changes in the safety parameters (liver, kidney and other blood values) have not been observed. No drop-outs did occur. The following changes are attributed to a positive treatment effect: (1) reduction of oxygen consumption, (2) increase in respiratory coefficient RQ at defined work-out, (3) reduction of CO2 exhalation and (4) reduction of lactate levels. If you correlate the individual values for VCO2 and VO 2 per breath stroke in a scattergram, one can calculate a certified treatment effect of seven percent more muscular energy after ENADAlert™ . The reduction of the oxygen consumption and the shift in the CO2/O2 scattergram under the influence of NADH indicate an improved cellular oxygen utilization. The additional gain in energy supply is most likely due to an increased ATP-supply. ENADAlert™ , the stabilized sublingually absorbed NADH formulation can increase muscular energy supply in highly conditioned athletes by an average of 7%. The decrease in lactate level after intake of NADH implies that athletes can perform longer under aerobic physiological conditions.

Introduction NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride) is one of the most important

coenzymes present in every living cell. NADH catalyzes more than thousand metabolic reactions the most important of 1 which is the trigger for ATP production . 51


Ask yourself this question –

If you were offered a substance that is claimed by patients to have cured their cancer, halted dementia, been the prayed for answer to sufferers of ME/Chronic Fatigue, stopped the symptoms of shaking and limited mobility in Parkinson’s disease - add menopause to the list of conditions - then improved the performance of world class athletes, sleep deprived airline crews, emergency room doctors, city traders and busy overloaded parents as if they had had a good night’s rest and..... last but not least, proclaimed to have smoothed wrinkles, age spots and banished spider veins – how would you respond?

Y

ou wouldn’t be alone if you answered – Rubbish! What’s the catch? Impossible! Well, all of the above statements have been made by people who have experienced these results from using NADH. In our July issue we told you about Professor George Birkmayer, the eminent Austrian Scientist who is credited with discovering the therapeutic benefits of NADH – a substance now thought by some scientific communities to be at the root of ageing and age related decline. Professor Birkmayer not only made this discovery he then went on to make it available to people across the world by finding a way to stabilise this natural substance so that it could be supplemented – something always through to be impossible due to its volatility. Today the Prof. George Birkmayer range of supplements are available via his websites (see below) and he is currently working on having his patented NADH product licensed as a medicine so that it might be available to everyone who needs it. If we told you that Professor Birkmayer’s NADH is currently at stage 3 of being licensed as an Alzheimer medicine, you may take this all more seriously!

Reseprch It is pretty mind blowing that one substance can positively affect all of these conditions – especially as they seem to be at epidemic levels in the western world. We asked Professor Birkmayer some questions we needed to know the answer to. We have reproduced these below, but firstly we wanted to know how it is possible that NADH can do all it is claimed to. Here is what he said: Without NADH we could not survive – we would be dead. NADH is needed to create energy within our body. This enrgy is ATP and powers all living things – (for example in the brain: thinking, memory recall, concentration, focus, decision making. In the body - movement of muscles, running, jumping, coordination, balance, heart beats, inhaling air, etc.; in human physiological functions as mentioned above, NADH is needed for creating ATP cellular energy, antioxidants and free radical scavenger, immune system, cellular DNA repair, tissue repair, production of brain chemicals, and bio-availability of nitric oxide. So, imagine what happens when due to old age, lifestyle or illness when NADH diminishes. The brain is unable to function as it used to. The muscles become weak; antioxidants and free radical scavengers decline and illness takes over. But, imagine once again the possibilities if you supplement NADH giving the body and every cell additional supplies! All of the conditions caused by lack of NADH and ATP cellular energy are reversed and the body, the brain and every cell and muscle begin to work again and the body can heal itself! This begins immediately the system has more NADH. You will not turn around these conditions overnight – but you will begin the process immeditaley with the addition of stabilised NADH - note “stabilised“ Professor Birkmayer is the the scientist credited with the discovery of the part NADH plays in the body. This was only one part of this incredible discovery – NADH was thought to be so volatile it could only ever be used via intravenous infusion – that was until Professor Birkmayer’s patented stabilisation process which made NADH available to everyone


as it could now be used in supplements. NADH is still volatile and diminishes rapidly however, Professor Birkmayer has found a way to guarantee that his range reach the user containing a full 20mg of NADH for the whole of their shelf life.

Are there any side effects? How much NADH is too much? And Are toxic levels ever reached?

NADH has gone through extensive clinical testing to find the answers to these questions.

Read on for more answers on this incredible substance – the clinical trials, the results and how much you need

The findings:

Can NADH be taken with other medications?

Yes! NADH is already found within every living cell in the human body. Clinical testing and 15 years of consumers taking a daily NADH has proven NADH can be safely taken with all other drugs, medications, special diets, vitamins, treatments, etc. Always seek the advice of a qualified physician or healthcare professional when taking any nutritional substance. When discussing NADH with your Doctor, tell them to remember NADH already exists in every cell of your body, creating ATP, the energy used to power all living things (i.e., thought, memory, muscle movement, heart beats, etc.).

How much NADH does the body need?

Your body will use only as much NADH as it needs, and it excretes the rest. Clinical testing has proven that as a person gets older NADH levels within the body become depleted.  This happens even in the healthiest of people.   For example: Olympic  athletes  that take NADH improve their performance scores.  Their scores would not improve if the NADH did not affect the athlete in a positive way.  Unlike many supplements, NADH does not build up to toxic cellular levels.

NADH has achieved outstanding safety and tolerance test results. The clinical testing has found If your body is not working efficiently then it may not digest the foods you eat adequately meaning it does not make NADH in a way a healthy body would. However, and this is very important, supplementing NADH enables your body to more efficiently digest your food and so helps it make more NADH on top of that which you are supplementing. • The body uses only the NADH it needs. Unlike many other supplements, NADH does not build up to toxic cellular levels. • In clinical testing, NADH DID NOT reach toxic-levels even when both male and female test lab animals were given 1,000 mg/kg in a single dose. The animals were observed for 14 days. After 14 days of observation -- All of the lab animals were still normal. NO NADH TOXIC effects were noticed. If this toxic-testing were transferred into human terms, it would translate into a single injection of 70,000 mg (seventy thousand mg) of NADH into a 150 lb person. The person can tolerate that large NADH dosage without complication. This dosage is equivalent to 3,500 20mg lozenges in one day. In another longevity toxicity test, the lab animals were fed one 5mg NADH tablet daily, for 26 weeks. In human terms, this would translate into 1,000 mg of NADH daily for 26 weeks (6 months). The clinical study results concluded: There were NO NEGATIVE clinical signs that could be related to excessive NADH.


It has been said, NADH energizes the human body, is it like caffeine?   How safe is taking a NADH supplement? 

NADH is not a drug, nor a stimulant. NADH has been clinically tested and found that it does not interfere with other medications, drugs, treatment programs, diets, vitamins, etc.  The more NADH a cell has, the  more ATP the cell will produce.   ATP is life’s energy used to power all living things (i.e., thought, memory, muscle movement, heart beats, etc.). That is the energy NADH delivers. NADH clinical research is ongoing. Current research and approved clinical testing are being conducted under the watchful eyes of many leading research hospitals while they are exploring NADH’s full potential. 

What do other people say? What do consumers say?

There are many thousands of people around the world taking a NADH supplement daily and the numbers are growing. There is a large amount of consumer experience with NADH and clinical trials have been conducted showing highly positive benefits for Alzheimer Disease, ADHD, Cancer, Type II diabetes, ME Chronic Fatigue, Heart Disease, Parkinson’s and of course skin ageing and age related decline in cognition.

Conclusion: •

A dosage of 1000 mg of NADH daily ( equal to 50 X 20mg lozenges) was administered for 26 weeks (6 months); it showed no adverse symptoms related to taking very large dosages of NADH. People obtain NADH from their diet but the bodies ability to make NADH declines with age and lifestyle - a daily nutritional supplement has been shown to improve all of the conditions mentioned above. NADH is a substance found in every human body – but as we age or become ill due to lifestyle, it becomes depleted as the body is less able to efficiently process our food and make enough for us to remain energised and healthy. Many important outside groups have reviewed

the NADH supplement data. Research hospitals have reviewed the NADH data for safety before they will use it in their testing. The United States governing body for Food and medicines that control the use of all supplements and medicines have reviewed NADH data and stamped it as FDA Approved Safe for clinical trials. • The International Olympics Committee has reviewed the NADH supplement data and approved it as: a non-drug, safe for use by Olympic Athletes.   We are working hard to make Prof. George Birkmayer NADH available to everyone by having it passed as a medicine in the UK and therefore able to be obtained on prescription via the NHS. Professor Birkmayer has put everything he has into this – energy, knowledge, thousands of hours of research and hard work educating people around the world via conference and public talks. Like his father before him he has invested all of his time into helping people with the conditions mentioned above and there are many success stories. This is his life’s work and his main aim is to make it available to all. We thank UK Health Radio and this magazine for helping us further this aim. You can view Professor Birkmayer talking about NADH how and why it works for all of the conditions above on the videos available on the UK website www.prof-birkmayernadh.co.uk We also have an extended list of questions on his revolutionary skin serum – used not only for cosmetic purposes, but also as a topical serum for hard to heal skin conditions which are being used in clinics throughout Europe. For a copy of this list complete with Professor Birkmayers answers, send an email to clinic@prof-birkmayernadh.co.uk with the subject “Skin serum Q & A.”

#michaelkeefemusic Talented Teen

Have you heared the latest UK Health Radio jingles? They are the work of Michael Keefe, a very talented young musician and composer


M

ichael is only just fifteen, yet he has known for many years that electronic music production is going to be the career for him. He has been making music from an early age; piano lessons started when he was about seven and saxophone lessons soon after. He has a natural sense of musicality and progressed through the grades, often gaining a distinction. In his spare time, Michael would listen to all kinds of music and recreate melodies on the piano. He then began to make up his own tunes, experimenting with unusual chords, something that would later be evident in his electronic music. As he got older, artists such as Deadmau5 and Porter Robinson were quite an influence on Michael and so he tried creating his own electronic tracks. Completely self-taught, he composed a number of pieces on an iPad, and then progressed to using a programme called ‘Logic’ on a MacBook. Michael saw Porter Robinson live in 2015, which he says was a ‘life-changing experience’ and it confirmed his passion for electronic music production. He can’t wait for the next four years to pass in order to go to a specific music college (he’s interested in the Academy of Contemporary Music in London) where he can immerse himself in the world of electronic production.

Whpt’s Hot in Music Music is a huge part of Michael’s life: he plays in a number of bands at school and in the Hitchin/ Stevenage area, particularly enjoying the North Herts Jazz Big Band. When he’s not at school or at band rehearsals, he retreats to his bedroom (which now looks like a recording studio!) to work on his latest project. Michael builds an electronic piece by adding layers of original chord progressions, rhythms and melodies to create unique sounds and styles of music. He doesn’t limit himself to any particular genre; from Ambient to Dubstep, he dabbles in a range of styles, often combining several in the same track. There is something about his compositions that is both haunting and uplifting. Each track features Michael’s own keyboard skills and he now has the equipment to record his saxophone playing, too. His latest piece, “Osiris”, mixes mysterious middle-eastern sounds with thumping beats and buzzing synths. The second half includes a saxophone section which leads into a climactic drop. This track, and the rest of his discography, can be accessed using the links below. www.soundcloud.com/michaelkeefemusic/ osiris www.soundcloud.com/michaelkeefemusic Interesting chord progressions complement catchy melodies; Michael’s music is both exciting and thoughtful. by Juliet Keefe

Truth, Smiles & Videotape by LadyXsize

LadyXsize interviews Johann Ilgenfritz

LadyXsize with Raphaela

N

ow last month I got the pleasure of making a video for UK Health Radio at the Janey Loves Platinum Awards, sponsors of the event. Fitness has always been my passion, but I am also a lover of natural products and have throughout my life sought products that are as pure as humanly possible. There are two reasons for this. The first, is that I am super sensitive and the second being, whilst I didn’t know it at the time, the list of symptoms I had been experiencing over time, were collectively considered to be Lupus, an autoimmune condition/response. Heavily scented or products with lots of chemicals have always triggered some form of uncomfortable skin, sinus or gut reaction and this now seems to be behind it.

Janey Lee Grace gives her interview

The subject of Lupus is even more pertinent as October is Lupus Awareness month. Personally, I hate the idea of being compartmentalised. I hate labels, it makes people almost blindly accept the prognosis that the label gives them. “You have Lupus, that’s what it is, here is the medication!!” So whilst I am not in denial that something makes my immune system overreact, I believe that finding the trigger is far more important than suppressing the symptoms. Suppression brings a whole host of other complications that can end up being far worse than the condition itself. Where lupus is concerned, the medical profession are all for suppression.


As well as things like viruses, autoimmune responses are often triggered by products that we use, pollutants in the air and foods that we eat. Environmental factors are particularly difficult to pinpoint. My immune system reacts if I use certain chemicals on my skin and eat certain foods and knowing which ones they are is crucial. With food, it’s a lot easier to determine. But working out what is causing a reaction when it’s something in a product, can be a lot trickier. In fact, I only bathe in dead sea bath salts and have done this for twenty years, simply because of skin reactions to certain products. As I couldn’t fully pinpoint the culprit, going natural by using dead sea salts was the best option.

Heplth Events That’s why I believe events that praise companies and individuals for creating natural products are to be championed. Now, that’s not to say that a natural product can’t cause an adverse reaction, but by reducing the quantity of ingredients and stripping a product down to essentials and natural ingredients, you are less likely to have a reaction and if you do, more likely to work out what is causing it. I love this revolution of seeking natural alternatives and keeping the body at peak condition, it suits me down me to the ground.

Smashed Chickpea & Sweetcorn Salad


The Rpw Chef Experience

UK Health Radio is delighted to air Russell James’s weekly show Whole Life Living - his favourite recipes are showcased here Serves 2

Ingredients

¾ cup cashews ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar ½ cup water

1 ½ cup sprouted chickpeas (garbanzo beans) 1 small stalk celery, finely diced 1” cucumber, finely diced 3 tablespoons red onion, finely diced 2 tablespoons minced parsley 1 cup organic sweetcorn Pinch of cayenne ¼ cup sea veg salad (or more if you’d like) Himalayan salt & cracked pepper to taste

• •

Blend the cashews, salt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and water in a high speed blender. In a bowl, crush the sprouted chickpeas with a fork or potato masher, leaving some texture to them. Some people digest chickpeas better when they have been steamed for 5 minutes first. If this is you, still sprout them, then steam them. If you’re in a pinch, or can’t imagine doing this, you can use pre-packaged ones. If you’re going this route, get organic and if you can get them in a pouch or box, rather than a can, you’ll avoid the toxicity that can come from canned goods. Add the remaining ingredients, along with the blended cashews, to the bowl with the chickpeas and mix with a fork. Serve on a lightly dressed greens. I just like to use a little olive oil and lemon juice to dress the greens. www.therawchef.com

Discussion on

How to be as comfortable as possible when

Pregnant

by Mike Dilke

recently spoke to GP, Wendy Malefuri-Youri who has a special interest in women’s health and wellbeing along with osteopath, Carly Eaves who specialises in the care of pregnant women. Although the numbers of women having children are declining still more do than don’t. I have two children and I know from selfish experience that my life was much better if my wife was comfortable when she was pregnant. So this round table discussion giving advice on everything from driving to sleeping while pregnant, should be useful to a lot of people. We didn’t get onto the topic of sex while pregnant but the experts involved can be contacted if you need more info on the topics covered and those that weren’t - including sex! The advice that many might find useful is tips on how to get a good nights sleep. One of the suggestions given is to sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees but also to think about your posture during the day as this can affect your sleeping position and hence your comfort at night. Thinking about your posture during the day can mean everything from wearing comfortable shoes to remembering the basics of keeping a good working position at your desk – or wherever you work. These points are all covered in the recording but one detail that I found particularly surprising is that wearing 4 inch heels put a curve on your back equivalent to being 8 month pregnant.

A human being can look forward to having sex an average of 2,580 times with five different partners. A human body contains about 200,000 temperature detectors. A human body has 500,000 touch detectors. A human ear contains about 24,000 fibers in it. A human head remains conscious for about 15 to 20 seconds after it is been decapitated. A human lung contains about 700 million alveoli. A muscle called the diaphragm controls the human breathing process. A neglected child brain can be substantially smaller than that of a healthy child. A New born baby loses about half of its nerve cells before it is born. A new born baby has more than 26 billion cells. A new born baby’s brain grows almost 3 times as fast during the first year of life. A pair of feet have 500,000 sweat glands and can produce more than a pint of sweat a day. A person can expect to breathe in about 45 pounds of dust over his/her lifetime. A person can live without food for about a month, but only a week without water. A person’s growth like being tall or short is not determined only by the genes. Growth hormone also is responsible for it.

A person will die from lack of sleep sooner than they will from starvation, which usually takes a few weeks. A simple, moderately severe sunburn damages the blood vessels extensively. A single hair has the ability to support up to 100 grams of weight and the whole head of hair has the ability to support up to 12 tons of weight. A single human sperm contains the 37.5mb of male DNA required to create a human child. That means an average ejaculation sees the transfer of 1,500 terabytes of information. A sneeze generates a wind of 166 km/hr (100 mi/ hr), and a cough moves out at 100 kmh (60 mi/hr).

Identity:

Seeing Yourself in a Spiritual Mirror by Debra Chew

I

t seems like many people these days are talking about “identity,” which can mean different things to different people. Oscar Wilde said, “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”   But, just who is yourself? Is it that physical reflection in your mirror or even what you think about yourself?  Or could it be that your identity is spiritual? Interestingly, I read a 2015 New York Times Magazine article, entitled The Year We Obsessed Over Identity.   The article cited the decade of technology when anyone can create any persona, or identity, and be protected in cyberspace.  Reality TV shows abound where experts can’t wait to make over homes, bodies, and lives.  And Wesley Morris

wrote this long piece pointing out the emotional strains some people experience from searching for their true identity in all these many ways.   From time to time, we have probably all asked the question, “Who am I?”   For a long time, this was certainly the case with my two daughters, who are adopted.   They both knew who their biological mothers were, but had never known their biological fathers.  Additionally, one daughter was Hispanic (and thirty years ago there weren’t as many diverse families as there are today) so she always felt “different” as a black-eyed, dark-skinned daughter of blonde “parents.”


Through the years, that “unknown” aspect of who my daughters were sometimes led to anxiety, fear, coping issues, and even physical problems like Wesley Morris described in his article, because they didn’t have all the answers about who they identified with or as. Thankfully, their religious upbringing taught them to always look to God for answers, so each time they faced a kind of “identity crisis,” instead of searching for their “human” identity, they searched the Scriptures. In Sunday School, my girls were taught from the Bible that man is made in God’s image and likeness (Genesis), that God is Love and that we are all called the children of God (I John). They also learned of the humble birth of Jesus, who could have identified himself as simply the son of a carpenter.  Instead, Jesus lived his life demonstrating his identity as God’s Son by reflecting God’s love and the spiritual qualities that came from his heavenly Father’s divine nature. And, in the Christian Science textbook (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy) my daughters were inspired to learn of identity as spiritual in passages such as: “Identity is the reflection of Spirit,” and “Man and woman as coexistent and eternal with God forever reflect, in glorified quality, the infinite FatherMother God.” Once, upon learning that her birth father had passed away a few years before, my younger daughter (who was only 14 at the time) was saddened and quite emotional about never having met him.  She had hoped to have questions answered about why he was never involved in her life.  For example, did he love her? As I tried to console her, I did tell her of some physical characteristics she shared with him.  Then, I asked her to describe the spiritual characteristics she reflected from her heavenly Father.  I was happy to hear her say “goodness, love, and comfort.”  She then went on to say, “God is really my father and mother.  And, everyone is God’s child.”

In the midst of feeling abandoned and perhaps unloved, what a wonderful revelation to think of being loved by the one “Parent” -- FatherMother God -- and reflecting that love. My older daughter has also had “ah-ha” moments about her identity. She, too, was able to leave sad feelings behind by acknowledging that she had a spiritual identity as a child of God.   Especially helpful to her was the idea that her spiritual identity also made her a unique individual.  This removed her worries about looking physically different from the   rest of our family. When looking in the mirror, instead of trying to find a likeness to a parent or other family member, my daughters finally realized that they reflected all the good and love that God is.  That was enough to eliminate their need to attach themselves to a material history. And, while it seemed they had been separated from their identity at birth, they eventually knew their true spiritual identity belonged to them and they could never be separated from qualities such as love, forgiveness, and gratitude, to name a few. My daughters gradually came to see that their identities were never defined by their human birth, ethnicity, or even gender.   Like them, if you are struggling with identity and discovering who you really are, look no further than your spiritual mirror and see who God sees – a perfect likeness of Him (or Her), with your own unique combination of spiritual qualities.   Debra Chew writes about the connection between thought, spirituality and wellness from a Christian Science perspective.  She has been published in USA Today, chattanoogan.com, Knoxville News Sentinel, Memphis Commercial Appeal, UK Health Triangle Magazine, and the Jackson Sun & JS Health Magazine.

My friend Myrian… by Reg Starkey

M

yrian and I have been friends for over 10 years and I can tell you that while she looks a lot like she always did, in many other ways, she has changed beyond recognition. Just over 12 months ago, Myrian came down with viral meningitis and encephalitis. Now she is dealing with the aftermath of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). 18 months ago she was working as a senior communications and marketing manager in a leading UK charity. In her spare time she was working tirelessly to help those with mental health problems by offering counselling and meditation classes. She was physically fit, full of beans and usually smiling. When the meningitis struck, it was originally optimistically diagnosed as ‘probably flu’. The consequences are devastating – they affect everything from eyesight to vocabulary, from energy to concentration. The primary objective is survival, followed by patient recovery based on building new neural pathways.

The 6 key significant relationships in our

Lifetime

by Paula Quinsee


O

ur whole life revolves around relationships. In fact we were born to be in relationships and to have a connection with others – we are social animals by nature, we need to be social to survive and society determines our human personality. We start off our life in a relationship i.e. our parents are in a relationship and we are conceived in a relationship. We then have a relationship with mom whilst in the womb and through the umbilical cord. Not only do we get important nutrients and other such elements for our development, but we also start to feel emotion in the womb – especially pain. We are then born into a relationship, firstly with our parents and then with our siblings if we are not the firstborn (ie our immediate family) as well as extended family (ie grandparents, cousins etc). As we grow and evolve through life, our friendships throughout school and university play a significant relationship role in our life. When we move into the working world, we have relationships with our colleagues and peers as well as our customers and suppliers, both internally across departments and externally. Lastly, our spiritual relationship is what feeds our soul and keeps us grounded – for some this may be religion, for others it may be activities such as meditation, sport, hobbies, getting away to the bush or the sea or just some quiet “me” time. Relationships drift and wane as individuals pursue their own interests and goals in life. Either the connection remains or it reaches the point at which it is no longer strong enough to sustain the relationship and it is time to move on. This can happen in a number of ways. Friendships end and people move, leave relationships and/or get divorced. Customers stop using your products/services or suppliers stop delivering or their contracts are not renewed. The 6 key relationships throughout our lifetime therefore are: • Self • Partner • Family • Friends

• Peers/Colleagues • Spiritual The relationship with “Self” is the most important of all. This forms the foundation of our relationships with others. How we think about ourselves, how we talk to ourselves (i.e. self talk) and how we treat ourselves will be an exact reflection of how we allow others to treat us. If we don’t think highly of ourselves (i.e. selfworth, self-value, self-confidence, self-love), we will allow others to treat us this way too. We will not be able to implement personal boundaries, stand up for ourselves or believe in ourselves and our abilities. Our relationship with “Self” is influenced by our upbringing and the environment we are exposed to in our childhood. This is where we form the foundation of our emotional intelligence and relational abilities. It’s where we learn to communicate, express emotion, listen, manage conflict, be vulnerable and more. This will ultimately influence your relationships with others and determine your emotional coping mechanisms. In any situation there is one common denominator and that is You. Situations don’t just happen to us. We cocreate them by what we are bringing into the space. If you are experiencing conflict and drama in your relationships, perhaps it’s time to look at what you are bringing into the relational space and how this is serving you….. Paula Quinsee is a Relationship Wellness Expert in Johannesburg. She teaches individuals and organisations the importance of quality relationships using emotional intelligence, Imago Therapy and NLP principles. Paula is also the author of Embracing Conflict - a self-help guide filled with practical tools and insights. Get your copy from Amazon or Smashwords.

Ayurveda

by Amarjeet S. Bhamra

A

yurveda, (Ayu – age, life, longevity, r – relating to, Veda – knowledge, wisdom, science) is known as the mother of all the medicinal systems. It is prevention oriented, free from harmful side-effects and capable of treating disease at its source. Ayurveda is the most ancient complete system of holistic healthcare in the world, as inscribed in Atharva Veda, one of the four volumes of the Vedas, the most ancient books of wisdom from 5000 years ago. In the West, the term diagnosis generally refers to identification of the disease after it has manifested. However, in Ayurveda the concept of diagnosis implies a moment-to-moment monitoring of the interactions between order (health) and disorder (disease) in the mind and body. For instance, the concept of normality, what is common in a majority of people constitutes

the norm. Ayurveda holds that normality must be evaluated individually, because every human constitution is based on the five elements or doshas: Vata (Space and Air), Pitta (Fire and Water), and Kapha (Water and Earth) manifests its own particular and spontaneous temperament and functioning. It promotes that a patient is a ‘living book’ and for understanding the physical, mental and spiritual well-being, it must be read daily and teaches very precise methods for understanding the disease process before any overt signs of the disease have manifested. The essence of Ayurveda is balance between all the constitutions, qualities and energies within and without. In creating Ayurveda as a healing system, these elements were described in a more simplified form as three vital energies or doshas. Each dosha is a combination of two elements. The


three doshas are responsible for all the physiological and psychological processes in our body and mind. They are dynamic forces that determine growth and decay. Each of our physical characteristics, mental capacities and emotional tendencies can be described in terms of the three doshas. In Allopathic medicine, treatment usually does not begin until several complicated medical tests have been conducted. This creates physical, mental and economic stress on the patient. In contrast, a professional Ayurvedic doctor can diagnose the ailment by examining the patient’s pulse and other bodily conditions and symptoms. This helps to avoid unnecessary stress, delay and expenditure. During the 18th Century, the British Raj wiped Ayurveda off the face of India by claiming it to be unfashionable, out of date and the world’s oldest system of medicine and the forerunner of all the great healing systems had almost disappeared. Several decades down the line, the tables are turning. Disillusionment with Allopathic medicine especially in the West has resulted in a resurgence of enthusiasm and demand for safer, more natural forms of therapy. All practices have their place in health care and should ideally work together, since no one system can claim to be able to deal with every disease. No one should deny the benefits of modern advancements in medicine, but in the race for better and more expensive treatments a vital aspect of healing - the human element - has often been forced in to the background. One of the unique features of Ayurveda is that its treatment methods aim at eliminate the root cause of disease in wrong living habits, and do not merely suppress the symptoms. Elimination of the root cause ensures a permanent cure to the particular ailment as well as overall health and wellbeing.

Natural healing traditions are among the most important heritages that a culture can possess. Practicing Ayurveda ensures the preservation of precious ancient knowledge gathered by the ancient Indian Rishis (Sages) over many millennia contribute towards a time-tested, proven and effective system of health care from the onslaught of quick but incomplete systems of medicine that cause us to lose control over our own well-being. Ayurveda is one of India’s greatest gifts to the world and preserving this treasure has many benefits. An increasing number of people today are looking for gentle and natural treatments. Ayurveda together with its allied healthcare sciences (Jyotish, Sangeet, Vastu, Homeopathy, Unani, Yoga and others) are natural prevention methods, miraculously handed down from the ancient popular wisdom to those who wish a healthier life. They therefore retain much of the language of alchemy, which was kind of global medicine and spiritual tradition in ancient and medieval times. The medicine of India has much in common with both the Oriental and Western Allopathic and often represents a point of integration between them. We may find that much of the medicine to heal the planet and usher in a new age of world unity is already contained in the oldest of all healing systems. Ayurveda is the science that can impart not merely physical, but also psychological and spiritual well-being to all living beings. Defining Ayurveda, in Charka Samhita, one of the great classics of Ayurvedic thought, Charka said, “The science that teaches us what is good or bad, what causes joy or sorrow, as well as the duration and characteristics of life, is Ayurveda.” The traditional medicine of India is beneficial not only to certain individuals or to the residents of a particular country, but has a universal significance. Just as nature is real and has its own natural intelligence, so are Ayurvedic principles and philosophies, which reflect their own wisdom. Ayurvedic practices are valid wherever there is life.


They are eternal and everlasting as they are rooted in enduring cosmic principles. The aim of these principles is to guide us to complete well-being and lasting joy. During diagnosis, the Ayurvedic doctor does not isolate his attention only to the affected parts of the body or to the particular symptoms of the illness. In addition, the patient’s overall constitution is examined, as well as the emotional state, psychological orientation, and other conditions affecting their physical and mental makeup. This explains why patients suffering from what appears outwardly to be the same disease are prescribed different remedies in Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, no disease is only physiological or psychological in nature. Physical ailments affect the psyche and mental disturbances affect physical health. Therefore, the body and

mind cannot be divided and considered separately for treatment. This is the rationale behind Ayurveda treating every disease as a psycho-somatic disorder. According to Charka, all diseases have one underlying cause - mistakes committed with wrong or depraved knowledge (Pragyaparadh). All disease are rooted in an ignorance of how life functions and can only be corrected by bringing us back in harmony with nature. Ayurvedic treatments may include dietary changes, herbal medicine, massage, meditation, Panchakarma a detoxification procedure for the body, mind to balance the doshas, and yoga. The use of Ayurvedic remedies is rooted both in the insights of the ancient Sages and in millennia of experience and application by Ayurvedic doctors and patients. Nature is the primary source of all Ayurvedic medicines. p

PATIENT SAFETY AND YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD PHARMACY

W

hat do prescription medications and outpatient pharmacies have to do with patient safety? More than you think.

“When Americans bring prescriptions to their neighborhood pharmacies, odds are the person in the white lab coat who greets them and enters the prescription in the computer is not a pharmacist. Neither, most likely, is the person who puts the pills in the medicine vial.” ~From USA Today In the case of Chris Jerry’s daughter Emily, an untrained pharmacy technician in a hospital pharmacy mixed her chemotherapy with the wrong saline. Pharmacy technicians work in outpatient pharmacies, too, and insufficient training can cause problems with prescriptions being filled properly.

If you live in the U.S., the state regulations regarding pharmacy technician training (or lack of those standards) are critical. To find out what the risk factor is in your state, go to the Emily Jerry Foundation website www.emilyjerryfoundation. org, and look at the 2016 Pharmacy Technician Legislation Scorecard for your state. If it is rated A or B, you can feel safer than if your state is rated D or F. “When Chanda Givens found out she was pregnant, she did what most expectant mothers would do: She went out to fill her prescription for prenatal vitamins. When she miscarried within a few weeks of taking the drug, Givens said it never occurred to her the prescription might be the cause. She later learned that instead of being given a prescription for Materna, a prenatal vitamin, she received one for Matulane, a chemotherapy drug used to treat Hodgkin’s disease…” ~CNN, Don’t Be a Victim of Pharmacy Errors, October 30, 2007


Pharmacies are busy places, especially during cold and flu season. Each staff member may fill up to 25 prescriptions in a single hour. As a consumer, we all want our prescriptions faster to meet our crazy schedule. Policies are often implemented to guarantee pharmacy fill times to increase profits and be competitive. A recent study found that 83% of pharmacists working at pharmacies with advertised time guarantees reported that this policy was a contributing factor to dispensing errors; almost half of them (49%) felt these were significant errors.

Consider that antibiotics do not fight infections caused by viruses like colds, flu, sore throats, bronchitis, and many sinus and ear infections, and have serious consequences if they are overused. The more medications you are on, the greater the risk factor and expense—and the greater the risk of antibiotic resistance, which is when bacteria are able to resist the effects of an antibiotic and continue to cause harm.

A Pill Can Fix Everything

What happens if a pharmacist does not meet their fill rate? In some retail pharmacy chains, they are fired. It doesn’t matter to management that they had to call a physician to verify a medication or report possible drug interaction concerns—or even if they had to go to the bathroom!

Many Doctors are Eager to Please and Quick to Prescribe I’ll be honest…when I get the occasional sinus infection, I want antibiotics and steroids. If I am going to pay my doctor a $40 deductible for a visit, I want to come out with something to show for it—unless it is my yearly wellness physical. This is an attitude that I need to change. Overuse of antibiotics can lead to serious problems, especially for patients like me who are allergic to whole strains of antibiotics. It’s unlikely that I’ll be around in 2050, but this recent quote predicts terrifying consequences for the future if things don’t change: “A new report on the dangers of antibiotic-resistant superbugs warns that if major steps aren’t taken to combat the threat, by 2050 such infections could kill 10 million people a year worldwide -- an average of one death every three seconds.” ~Mary Brophy Marcus, CBS News

“Can’t sleep? Take a pill to knock you out. Problems focusing? Take a pill to boost your attention. Feel edgy? Take a pill to calm you down. While there is no question that modern medicines help us manage pain and save lives by staving off potentially fatal illnesses like heart disease, there can be a darker side to prescription drugs that can sometimes lead to addiction, and even death.” ~Linda Carroll, TODAY Health and Wellness People seem to believe that…no matter what illness they have…there is pill that can fix it. Why shouldn’t we eat what we want…there are plenty of statins to take if we get high cholesterol. Medications may do a lot of good and are needed in many situations, but when a patient is on too many at once, there are serious questions about whether the therapeutic benefits outweigh the collateral damage. I read a story about a woman who was having trouble sleeping, so she got a prescription for sleeping pills. It worked…she was sleeping like a baby, until she started having troubles with bronchitis and lung infections. Her pulmonologist prescribed an antibiotic. Her heart started skipping beats, so she was referred to a cardiologist, who prescribed a medication for arrhythmias. She developed seizures. Suddenly this woman


living after cancer treatment can attest to that. The truth is that nearly all medications (both overthe-counter and prescription) have some kind of undesirable and sometimes dangerous aftereffects (from muscle aches to neuropathy to death). Be sure to read the information sheet or Google on the internet for each medication. At the first sign of any of the side-effects, call your doctor—perhaps you can stop the medication in time before permanent problems result. Even a case of the hives can be serious, especially if you have the reaction after you have finished the entire prescription. was taking six different medications from three specialists. She was spending more than $900 a month. After a decade on all these pills, she enrolled in drug rehab. Eventually, she found out her initial insomnia was a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Is it any wonder that the number of prescriptions filled in the U.S. increased by 39% between 1999 and 2009, and the amount of money spent was $234 billion in 2008? The average American fills at least 12 prescriptions each year. If the health concern is not serious, consider trying natural remedies before taking a prescription or over-the-counter medicine. For example, ginger is great for stomach ailments. When my stomach is bothering me, I put ginger and lavender essential oils on my abdomen. Most of the time, that does the trick. There is much to be said for acupuncture, deep tissue therapeutic massage (for muscle and back pain), and just good old-fashioned rest for the weary.

The Cure is Worse than the Disease Even if a medication is not outright dangerous, it is critical to know the potential short- and long-term side effects (have you seen the TV commercials?). In the world of cancer, millions of cancer survivors

While most drugs are tested and approved independently, it can be difficult for researchers to predict the side effects of drug combinations. Over time, these interactions can be recorded—but if you are taking a newly FDA approved medication, let your doctor know if you start to recognize troubling symptoms. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

It Won’t Hurt to Skip a Dose? We may think that adjusting the dosage (higher or lower) will not cause an issue, but those types of assumptions can be dangerous—especially when they lead to an overdose. But do not skip doses either. Do not stop taking antibiotics early unless your healthcare professional tells you it is okay to do so; the medical problem may come back and lead to another use of antibiotics. Do not save any of the antibiotics for the next time you get sick thinking that you will save some money. There are situations where taking a dose of oral medication incorrectly can have a big impact, as more and more strong drugs are given for lifethreatening illnesses such as cancer. You should have clear instructions on how much and when to take oral chemotherapy at home. Sometimes chemo is given in rounds or cycles. This cuts


down on the harm to healthy cells and allows the chemo to kill more cancer cells. Be sure to take oral chemotherapy just the way your oncologist prescribes it. Discontinuing certain medications such as anti-depressants, steroids, and blood thinners without a plan defined by your physician can potentially lead to serious medical problems including seizures and stroke.

Take Time to Check Before You Check Out

That could amount to 3.7 million such errors a year, based on 2006 national prescription volume.” Use one primary pharmacy, and try not to get a prescription filled at the beginning of the month (when Social Security checks are delivered). Research shows that in the first few days of each month fatalities due to medication errors rise by as much as 25 percent above normal. If the prescription is a new medication for you, ask for a consultation with the pharmacist when you pick it up. Open the bottle right at the pharmacy, and show the pills to the pharmacist— especially if it is on the list of confused drugs. Resources: For information on your prescription medications, go to: www.drugs.com

If you are 65 or older, you should also consult the Beers Criteria for Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults: www.americangeriatrics.org Picking up a prescription without checking to be sure it’s the right medication and amount before leaving the pharmacy is like playing Russian roulette with your safety. That goes for caregivers who pick up prescriptions for the patient, too. Chris and I heard this horrible story about a wife who picked up a medication for her husband. She gave him a dose of the wrong medication, and he suffered brain damage. The local police arrested her, not realizing that the pharmacy had made the error. “An Auburn University pharmacy study in 2003 projected the odds of getting a prescription with a serious, health-threatening error at about 1 in 1,000.

TheYes to Life Show by Robin Daly Founder & Chairman, Yes to Life

T

his month I have a gloriously mixed bag of contributions from my recent guests on the Yes to Life Show for you. We start with an article by mushroom expert - or mycologist Catalina Fernández de Ana Portela, on the part mushroom products can play in Integrative Medicine, particularly for cancer. This is followed by Monika Sleszynska on the ways in which hypnotherapy can play a supportive role through cancer and cancer treatment; and to round off, Rachel Hoyle, an expert on nucleotides - an as yet relatively unappreciated aspect of nutrition writes an introduction to the topic - Nucleotides - what’s on your plate?

A new perspective in oncology : Medicinal Mushrooms Catalina Fernández de Ana Portela

Our specialised products for cancer patients

What is mycotherapy?

Mycotherapy is a term used to refer to the therapeutic use of mushrooms and their extracts. This term was coined by our scientific team in 2006, and is now used the world over to refer to treatments and therapies based on medicinal mushrooms.

Medicinal mushrooms and their benefits in integrative oncology Mushrooms and their extracts have been found to: • Modulate the immune system • Induce apoptosis (programmed cell death), inhibit

These are the result of many years of scientific research carried out in collaboration with nationally and internationally recognised institutions and organisations. They contain the highest levels of active ingredients of any mushroom-based product ever produced. Each formulation combines different species of mushrooms that have complementary and synergistic effects, in order to bring about the greatest health benefits.

Evidence-based mycotherapy The range of products that we have developed for cancer patients is based on scientific evidence, data and clinical results that have allowed us to develop and refine products with effective concentrations to meet specific needs.


Hypnosis for cancer care and healthy lifestyle

We combine ancient knowledge and organic farming with the application of biotechnology, using the best and latest technology to extract, concentrate and analyse the active principles and compounds in the mushrooms. It’s essential that we know the strength of the substances we are concentrating, as well as their purity. This is our work and our mission. We have put all our resources, knowledge and passion into creating this new line of products. We hope it is of great value to you; that it helps to improve your quality of life and get the best results possible. We know that we can help you. This is our mission, but above all, it is our dream. Listen to Catalina’s message Listen to my interview with Catalina here. References: 1. Ferlay J, et al. F.

Monika Sleszynska, Hypnotherapist

Cancer pushes us to look at our lifestyle. We go through life knowing about the ‘shoulds’ and ‘shouldn’ts’ yet it is easy to ignore it. Much is possible with the application of hypnosis in overall care, prevention and in creating a healthier life style. It is important to ask ourselves the question: where do we go for answers? Those who have managed to create a healthy lifestyle have the answers. If we look at what cause cancer, we cannot ignore the fact that the most of it comes down to our lifestyle and the environment we live in; amongst other factors, obesity and smoking are hugely related to many health issues. Hypnosis is a highly effective tool for addressing those and bringing fast results and consistent change.

Valerie Austin, internationally renowned British hypnotherapist, who established an Advanced Austin method, calls hypnotherapy the “royal” therapy. Valerie is a dedicated advocate of hypnotherapy as a complementary treatment for cancer and for supporting healthy lifestyle. (www.cancerandhypnotherapy.com) Compared to the past, when hypnosis was only available to a minority, it has become far more popular and is now easily and widely available. Hypnosis is a versatile and remarkable tool for dealing with a wide range of issues like stress, anxiety, anger and frustration. It enables us to resolve the emotional triggers rooted in the past and to build solid emotional balance. Those are the key factors in supporting a healthier lifestyle.

A solid foundation for a healthier lifestyle with hypnosis Hypnosis works at the level of the subconscious, which is a miraculous in itself. The subconscious is the part of the mind which takes care of the body functions such as heartbeat, blood pressure and digestion. We can see from this what an incredible intelligence it is.


Hypnosis for dealing with stress, anxiety and pain around cancer treatments

and pain are interrelated - one adds to the other. With hypnosis, we can manage and reduce both.

In the article presented by the team of Department of Oncological Science from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York “Hypnosis for cancer care - 200 years young” (Guy Montgomery, Julie Schnur, Kate Kravits, November 2012), we find how “Hypnosis has been used to provide psychological and physical comfort to individuals diagnosed with cancer for nearly 200 years”. It is truly an insightful review of the history of hypnosis and recent case studies of the use of hypnosis with cancer patients www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

The power of habits: change effortlessly with hypnosis

Just the news that we have cancer can be very stressful. It can be a shock. Hypnosis helps to open up the possibility of brighter outcome. We are then able to calm down and see things in a more optimistic light.

Hypnosis is a wonderful self care tool

When the system is in stress, all the functions of our body are highly affected. When we bring our body and mind into emotional equilibrium, the natural healing forces can focus on the cancer, rather than having to deal with the stress as well. With the help of hypnosis and post hypnotic suggestions, the anxiety around surgery or a treatment can be lowered. Stress

Even subtle habits can be very powerful, especially when driven by emotional impulses reaching deep into childhood, e.g. emotional eating. When we resolve these, we cease to be driven by unconscious hidden motives. We free ourselves from unhealthy behaviours. We all know about healthy lifestyle, yet many find it challenging to make the changes.

Dealing with a cancer adds a sudden and onerous extra task to our life. If we dedicate ourselves to it and truly focus, anything is possible - which many have proven. Hypnosis offers that extra inner focus in an accelerated way. In times of being busy or feeling weak, this tool provides a quick way to balance and manage what is happening. It takes us to the deep inner space of understanding what has led us to this point in our lives.

Creating the conditions for healing With hypnosis we stop and look inside. This is very important - to slow down and look inside. This is when the healing can happen. The healing space needs to be created. We need to allow ourselves to look inside and get to the root of the illness and what caused it so it does not reappear. It is not just about prevention any more. We can create an environment and life in which there is no need or space for illness. We can create a caring environment in which we are getting healthier and fitter. We are learning to care, rather than continuing to neglect ourselves and allowing the space for disease.

A healthy body is a beautiful body Eventually it is about more self-care and looking after our body in a way in which we become our healthiest expression and also the most beautiful. A healthy body is a beautiful body. Cancer can be a wakeup call for many. How will we respond to such a call…?

Say YES to health in one hour A one hour hypnosis session is a decision to make a change. And after that hour every session is another step to your new healthier reality. The choice is yours. Listen to my interview with Monika here.


Nucleotides - what’s on your plate?

Rachel Hoyle, expert on nucleotides and nutrition

In its most familiar form, in DNA’s double helix structure, pairs of nucleotides are loosely bonded together to form the ‘steps’ of the DNA ‘spiral staircase’. New cells form, as old cells die. The DNA in an ageing cell ‘unzips’ itself lengthwise, and these two strands go on to form two new cells. Specific nucleotides sourced from the body’s nucleotide pools pair up with the newly exposed nucleotides to create two identical DNA strands.

The huge and relentless demand for nucleotides

The body has a huge demand for the five different nucleotides that are required to build DNA and RNA molecules. In just one strand of human DNA there are 3.2 billion nucleotides. The biggest demand for nucleotides is by the fast replicating cells of the immune system and gut lining (cells here last less than 6 days). Without a balanced pool of all five nucleotides, stockpiled and ready for use, cellular replication would be delayed or put on hold until the required nucleotide is either produced by the body (de novo), salvaged from dying cells, or made available through dietary means i.e. food.

Dietary deficiencies in the modern western diet

How much do you know about nucleotides? Did you know that they are routinely supplemented into infant formula? They have also been used in young animal diets as an alternative to antibiotic growth promoters for over two decades. More recently adult humans have been able to benefit from food supplements based on nucleotide formulas. Much of the development and science in this branch of nutrition has been pioneered by Swiss biochemist-immunologist, Dr Peter Koeppel. He has been particularly instrumental in developing a nutritionally balanced nucleotide formula, based on purified nucleotides extracted by sustainable yeast sources.

Historically humans have eaten cuts of meat that have high levels of nucleotides in the tissues, such as the liver and brain, in other words, the offal. Now the consumption of foods with the highest nucleotide concentration is in decline. Offal foods, such as tripe and liver, are no longer popular and are the best example of this decline. This table shows an analysis the DEFRA survey showing levels of nucleotides in foods and their popularity rank between 1974 and 2014. The changes in quantity of meats and fish purchased in 1974 compared with 2014

What are nucleotides?

Nucleotides are the key structural nutrients (components) that form the basis of our genetic material, namely DNA and RNA, found in every cell in the body. This is why nucleotides are often referred to as the ‘building blocks of life’.

Thanks to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) who surveyed 150,000 households from 1974 to 2014, we can establish that liv-

THE FUTURE 0F CANCER

Robin Daly

Integrative Medicine is the broadest possible approach to treatment, one that leaves no stone unturned. It is more comfortable with doing too much than with taking the risk of missing a vital piece of the puzzle. In this important new handbook, Patricia Peat has assembled a world-class team of experts to offer practical information on nutrition, lifestyle, conventional medicine and a range of cutting-edge treatments, as well as helpful guidance for navigating through cancer and beyond. For the first time, The Cancer Revolution brings together, in the most accessible form, the whole spectrum of resources that are at hand to support you or someone you love through every stage of cancer and to help you to chart a healthy future.

The Cancer Revolution has been written to introduce the public to a revolutionary way of looking at cancer: Integrative Medicine. An alarmingly high and relentlessly growing number of people are being affected, either directly or indirectly, by this deadly disease. They do not have the luxury of waiting for science to come up with ‘the cure’; they need answers right now. The Cancer Revolution has answers.

The evolution of human eating habits, especially over the last century and in western countries, indicated by DEFRA’s study, has affected the quantities in the nucleotide pool. Under ideal conditions the de novo and salvaging pathways are considered to meet the demands for nucleotides sufficiently (Carver & Walker, 1995). When the body is undergoing high levels of rapid growth or requires an increase in DNA and RNA synthesis, for example, supplies of nucleotides could be depleted. Under these circumstances, nucleotides could be referred to as conditionally essential, as opposed to non-essential (Van Buren & Rudolph, 1997).

Further independent research alongside the clinical research conducted with Nucleotide Nutrition’s food supplements has helped to expose that for some adults there is a real need for supplementary nucleotides to support their health.

e g

er and other offal have experienced a 92% and 87% decrease in quantity purchased. The rise of the ready meal and takeaways could have had an additional effect on the dietary intake of nucleotides. In 1974, the quantities of both respectively were, 27g and 16g per person, both less than the 36g of liver. But in 2014 these had risen to 163g and 50g, a 503% and 213% increase respectively.

Only the Visible can Vanish By Anna Maconochie

T

his new book is a first collection of original stories written by a young London-based writer, Anna Maconochie, and published now by Cultured Llama http://www.culturedllama.co.uk/books Some of the stories have already appeared individually in titles like the Erotic Review, the Dublin Review and Bitter Oleander. Hopefully ‘Only the Visible can Vanish’ will bring Anna Maconochie’s diverse and dazzling talent to a far wider audience. Her writing sets a high original standard rather than settling into one particular predictable personal style. Like Jean Cocteau when challenged by Diaghilev to ‘astonish’ him- “Etonnez moi!” – Anna Maconochie’s prose is constantly astonishing. Some of it is very dark, some of it is bizarre – but none of it is dull. If it is true that everyone has a book in them - and that most should keep it there! - Anna Maconochie has many books in her and should now be encouraged to write them for us. Writers like her do not come along very often.

“Diabetes and Disaster Preparedness” by Maureen Sullivan, RN, CDE* *(CDE-Certified Diabetic Educator) www.MaureenSullivanRN.com

A

s I write this month’s column, the local news is reporting tropical storm and hurricane threats in the United States, flooding in the Caribbean, and showcasing efforts of the American Red Cross in wildfires, earthquakes and house fires. When disaster strikes, lives are instantly disrupted. Simple things that we take for granted, like food, water, and electricity, are often compromised. People with chronic diseases, such as diabetes, have additional stressors to deal with. Preplanning is the key to surviving when a disaster strikes. This article will highlight information from the experts on how to proactively prepare for the unexpected. When a disaster strikes, a person with diabetes (PWD) faces additional stressors. Aside from the disruption of basic human needs, such as food and shelter, a PWD must also address concerns over medication supplies, proper storage of medications, adequate food and fluid supplies, and glucose testing equipment. The key to surviving a disaster is to avoid the health-related threats that occur when faced with inadequate supplies, foods, and other items required to maintain good health practices. Preplanning for (the possibility of ) a disaster is the best way to lower the risk of compromising your health. Make a list of items you would need in the event of an emergency. Build your own emergency

kit with supplies you would need, such as food, water, prescription medications and testing supplies, as well as basic first aid supplies and clothing to keep warm and dry. In addition, include personal hygiene products, additional batteries, and a flashlight. The general rule of thumb is to include enough supplies to last 3days. As many of these items have expiration dates, be sure and check/restock supplies as needed. The American Red Cross recommends storing one gallon of water per day per person. Food supplies should provide an average of 1200 calories per day per person. Foods not requiring refrigeration are best. They include canned foods, granola bars, freeze dried meals, and meal replacement bars. Don’t forget to include a can opener and eating utensils in your preparedness kit. The change in food quality and quantity may affect your blood glucose level; thus, it is important to include glucose tablets and gels in your kit, to teat possible hypoglycemic events. Finally, make sure your kit includes emergency contact information, a copy of your medications, and your doctor’s contact information.

Re:Cognition Health hosts final phase international trials for new generation Alzheimer’s drugs

by Dr Emer Macsweeney

A

ward-winning experts in brain and cognitive health at Re:Cognition Health are currently hosting final phase drugs trials at its London, Plymouth and Guildford clinics as part of an exciting international trial involving around 250 clinics in over 50 countries. The new medication is designed to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and thereby delay or ideally avoid onset of the common symptoms of dementia including memory loss and confusion. Existing drugs cannot slow down progression of the disease and symptoms, but just mask the symptoms for a while. Alzheimer’s disease is caused by the buildup of two key proteins in the brain – amyloid and tau. All our brains produce amyloid and tau protein but in a healthy brain this is cleared and managed so the brain cells and synapses are not affected. In someone with Alzheimer’s disease, the production of a fragment - called the abeta amyloid fragment - breaks off from the normal amyloid protein and outweighs its clearance. These fragments coalesce to form an amyloid plaque which the brain can’t clear. This stops the brain cells used for cognitive tasks from working normally and, consequently, these brain cells start to atrophy and die.  Brain cells can’t regenerate so the damage is irreversible. The new drugs are designed to delay the progression of cognitive symptoms in one of two ways, either by reducing the production of amyloid protein in the brain or by increasing the clearance of the amyloid protein plaque build-up. Scientists believe that early access to this new medication could result in people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, particularly in their later years, never developing dementia. “It’s important for people to understand that dementia is  not  a diagnosis, it’s merely a generic term that describes problems with memory and

thinking ability”, explains Dr Emer MacSweeney, CEO & Medical Director of Re:Cognition Health. “Alzheimer’s disease is the diagnosis and having received this people are likely to develop one or more dementia symptoms including memory loss, confusion, difficulty in concentration and cognitive impairment that affects their day-to-day living.” “We are greatly encouraged and cautiously optimistic by the results, so far, of testing these drugs and it’s exciting to think that these new medications could mean that an early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease may not necessarily mean people will go on to suffer dementia if we can slow or ideally halt progression of symptoms,” says Dr MacSweeney. www.recognitionhealth.com

The Layers

Ppetry Corner

BY STANLEY KUNITZ I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray. When I look behind, as I am compelled to look before I can gather strength to proceed on my journey, I see the milestones dwindling toward the horizon and the slow fires trailing from the abandoned camp­sites, over which scavenger angels wheel on heavy wings. Oh, I have made myself a tribe out of my true affections, and my tribe is scattered! How shall the heart be reconciled to its feast of losses? In a rising wind the manic dust of my friends, those who fell along the way, bitterly stings my face. Yet I turn, I turn, exulting somewhat, with my will intact to go wherever I need to go, and every stone on the road precious to me. In my darkest night, when the moon was covered and I roamed through wreckage, a nimbus­clouded voice directed me: “Live in the layers, not on the litter.”

Though I lack the art to decipher it, no doubt the next chapter in my book of transformations is already written. I am not done with my changes.

The Layers by Stanley Kunitz was chosen by Carol Martin-Sperry, retired psychotherapist, active French literary translator, bibliophile and art lover, charity worker and traveller. “I first heard ‘The Layers’ by Stanley Kunitz on ‘Poetry Please’, late at night, lying in bed, in the dark and I burst into tears. It describes my life experience.” Carol Martin-Sperry  is a retired psychotherapist, active French literary translator, bibliophile and art lover, charity worker and traveller.     www.shrinkrap.co.uk p

What’s HOT in

October

by Reg Starkey

BRIDGET JONES’S BABY

Perhaps this primarily is a woman’s film but if men avoid it, they are missing something quite special. It really is tremendous fun! The female leads are all fabulous and the supporting male characters are absolutely excellent. We find Bridget now predictably 43 and unpredictably pregnant, after a couple of unexpected sexual encounters – the first with a handsome stranger, the second with the ohso-familiar Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). Emma Thompson, who was also one of the writers, plays a very witty, worldly doctor. Highly recommended.

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC This is a charming modern fairy story starring Viggo Mortensen as the father

of six children, who is bringing them up on his own, in the wilds of Washington – State not DC. Their mother, it emerges, is in hospital with a severe bi-polar condition. When she ends her own life, her parents in New Mexico choose to give her a conventional Christian funeral, against her wishes as a convert to Buddhism. Her hippie husband, who is blamed by them for her death, is told he is not welcome at her funeral. This provides the central tension in the plot, which is only resolved when the family decides to attend and if possible, to fulfil their mother’s last wishes. This is a highly engaging movie that challenges conventional wisdom and in the process, provides us as the audience with plenty to think about.

Set on a hot Sunday morning in St Louis, Missouri, Bodey is preparing the food for the picnic at Creve Coeur later that day. Meanwhile her flatmate Dorothea is awaiting a phone-call from the man she has given her virtue to. The lonely German spinster, Miss Gluck, from upstairs, is grieving the recent loss of her mother. The trio becomes a foursome with the arrival of a teacher friend of Dorothea who is counting on her to co-fund a smarter flat further from school. Bodey’s wishful thinking involves pairing her flatmate Dorothea with her twin brother Buddy. All four women are isolated and unfulfilled. Tennessee Williams tenderly reveals their unrealistic aspirations and vulnerable illusions. One minute it is farce, the next it is tragedy. No’s Knife by Samuel Beckett. This play is based on various prose pieces written by Samuel Beckett, in the 1950s, which have now been adapted for theatre and performed by Lisa Dwan. The result is a theatrical tour de force by a single actress on stage for some 70 consecutive minutes, without a break. We are introduced to her on a cliff face - through a big full-colour close-up of a human eye, followed by a black and white dream sequence of a woman’s body in a disturbed sleep. The language is beautiful but obscure. Lisa Dwan’s performance is simply amazing. p
