Glyconutrients – My Personal Story

How could this be happening? Our dog (Storm) just received her one year checkup in June and was given a clean bill of health. In shock by the news, we refused to put Storm down and defied the recommendation of our vet oncologist.

What followed could only be described as a long exhaustive internet and phone search for cancer alternatives for dogs. After 100 hours of research in two weeks, we stumbled across a homeopathic vet in our area. What we learned was shocking.

Dogs like humans - even puppies who are barely adult dogs are exposed to triggers every single day that can kick off a serious of unfortunate health events. These triggers can come from the air we breath, the water we drink, the food we eat, and the vaccinations we take to stay healthy - yes even vaccinations can be a trigger to cancer.

Listening with abated breath, we continued to learn from our homeopathic vet that traditional doctors treat most auto immune diseases (like cancer) at the symptom level; but they never address the underlying question which is why did we get sick in the first place?

When your body is out of balance, your body fails to do what it was designed to do - which is heal itself. When your cells stop talking to each other efficiently they become corrupt. These corrupt cells can lead to illnesses and in the case of our Storm - Lymphosarcoma.

It was recommended that we put Storm on a glyconutrient supplementation program coupled with a raw diet high in protein and low in carbs. We started her on a leading brand of glyco supplements. These supplements contained the eight simple sugars that provide your body the building blocks it needs to enhance cell to cell communication.

Within two weeks of this program, the tumor that Storm had was 90% gone. This was a tumor that was twice the size of her heart on the ultrasound just two weeks before. At the end of the first month, Storm was diagnosed as being in remission.

Don't get me wrong. Cancer is a smart, nasty disease that mutates and has one purpose - survival. Is there a cure for cancer? - probably not. Is there a better way to treat cancer? - absolutely. Are glyconutrients part of that better treatment? - my opinion is YES.

Holly and I have seen first hand what these glyconutrients can do. We both take them; and our dogs both take them. Did we know about glyconutrients before Storm was diagnosed with cancer? - NO. Do most doctors know about them? - NO. This is because the discovery of glyconutrients is fairly new and has only recently been added to the curriculum at medical schools.

If you are or a loved one are suffering from an auto immune disorder I strong urge you to check out this website.

Myrrh Extract:: What Are The Health Benefits?

Myrrh extract - What are the health benefits? A supplement that contains Guggul is most important. It is extracted from the Commiphora mukul or Indian myrrh tree.

Myrrh is most commonly used as incense that is made from the dried sap of a number of different trees. Some of types are beneficial to the health, others are not. Only the ones that contain Guggul have medicinal activity.

The myrrh extract benefits have been valued since Ancient times. It was a staple of Ayurvedic medicine, which is still widely practiced throughout India, today. Only in recent years has the active component (Guggul) been identified. Many of our ancient remedies have been evaluated by modern scientists. The thought that folk remedies were less beneficial to our health than modern-day drugs is slowly changing.

Health Benefitt::Anti-Inflammatory

Many of the chronic and life threatening health problems that people develop as they get older are due to chronic inflammation, free radical damage and oxidative stress. Prescription drugs that treat inflammation have little or no infect on chronic inflammation and they cannot prevent free radical damage or oxidative stress. But, natural anti-inflammatories, most of which are antioxidants, are highly beneficial for reducing our risk of diseases caused by chronic inflammation and free radical damage.

Health Benefit::Prevents Oxidation of Fats (Cholesterol)

Cancer and heart disease are out two biggest killers. Chronic inflammation plays a role in both of them. So does oxidation. One of the myrrh extract benefits is to prevent the oxidation of fats. Fat oxidation is what causes the plaque buildup that is seen in the arteries of people with atherosclerosis and other types of heart disease.

Health Benefit::Stronger Heart

Preliminary tests indicate that Guggul can help prevent death of the heart muscle. Other plant extracts, such as resveratrol derived from red grape skins, have been shown to prolong the life of the cells of the heart. It may be possible for people to live longer and have stronger hearts, if they simply take the right combination of supplements.

Health Benefit::Weight Loss

Other myrrh extract benefits include stimulation of the thyroid gland, which would be highly beneficial for people suffering from hypothyroidism. It could also be beneficial for other metabolic disorders and may help people lose weight. It has been shown to inhibit the production of cholesterol in the liver, similar to some of the popular weight loss aids.

Health Benefit::Acne

Because of its anti-inflammatory activity, Guggul can provide relief for arthritis sufferers and other painful conditions. This was one of its ancient uses. It was also used in a variety of skin diseases. Modern researchers have suggested that it could be beneficial for people that suffer from acne, because it seems to inhibit sebum production and bacterial growth in the pores.

Sebum is the oil produced by the glands within the skin. Bacteria, normally present on the skin, multiply in acne and cause these minor infections that we commonly refer to as pimples. Prescription drugs are largely ineffective against acne and are accompanied by numerous side effects. Treating acne is only one of the myrrh extract benefits, but it is of interest to many people.
