testing is overutilized and the simplest evaluation tools often yield the best overall results A good history and exam evaluation is a must It will by far out perform the newest investigational lab test or procedures in terms of overall efficacy and efficiency if implemented consistently and correctly There is a tendency to start first with the most expensive lab test or tool to evaluate the health status of individuals who seek our help This leaves the simple to perform exam evaluation procedures underappreciated and underutilized Many providers fail to use easy to perform non invasive tests Because of this in my opinion many serious health problems are inadequately addressed and or undergo costly procedures that would have been otherwise unnecessary It is for this reason that I write this informative article for the conservative provider It is my hope that the case studies review of basic and underappreciated exam evaluation procedures and natural health information is an encouragement and motivation to be bold and step out of comfort zones and preconceived professional expectations I assert that my highest purpose is bringing health and healing to a sick and diseased world This paper has far grander goals than to repeat or present information to support the title of this article mentioned above The true purpose here is to impart a more fully realized understanding

commonly ask men in the audience if they would rather prevent or treat it prostate cancer I have yet to hear one member of the audience answer the latter Everyone obviously would rather first prevent any malady or condition from ever occurring This brings me to the Law of 75 and the fact that every provider should be intimately and intensely interested in aggressively preventing disease and dysfunction The Law of 75 says basically this 75 of all life threatening chronic degenerative conditions can be prevented This isn t a hard fast number and in some cases the estimates are far ranging depending on the organization reporting this and the specific diseases or conditions in question But let me mention just a few statistics The American Stroke Association advises that 80 of all strokes are preventable 1 The CDC advises that about 80 of deaths from coronary artery disease are preventable 2 More than 80 of all type II diabetes cases are preventable 3 The National Cancer Institute

ANMA that around 75 of all cancers are related to environmental dietary factors 4 Many other studies point to the reality that around 80 of cancers are preventable Around 90 of all COPD is preventable 5 I could go on and perhaps I should It honestly seems at times that conservative providers sell themselves short thinking themselves to be technicians or second thoughts on the health care spectrum However the reality is that around 75 of cancer diabetes stroke cardiovascular disease and even pulmonary problems such as COPD are preventable Conservative providers must take their place at the table of health care and truly do just that provide Real Health Care Of course we know that not all conditions are preventable We live in a fallen world and we all have an expiration date However the statistics reported by prominent organizations are overwhelming Prevention practices and their positive effects on serious disorders and conditions are real Conservative care providers and any providers for that matter must absolutely first be concerned about true prevention for those that whom serve Through aggressive prevention strategies diet exercise and lifestyle management there is no doubt that conservative care providers save lives We save lives A comprehensive history When I teach continuing education classes it is my recommendation and encouragement to student doctors that they use the easiest and least invasive means of obtaining the correct assessment Yes more extensive testing is often needed but without the foundation of a good thorough health history one may never arrive at the right conclusion Multiple studies reveal that a correct diagnosis protocol and remedy is preceded by a good health history Up to 90 of the time taking a good and thorough health history will yield the correct assessment 6 7 8 For this matter spending time reviewing the chief complaint onset aggravating and mitigating factors are all important but are really just the beginning The reality is questions regarding lifestyle diet work environment level of stress exercise alcohol usage and smoking patterns hormone cycling family history digestive patterns foods consumed sleep patterns to include snoring daytime sleepiness etc medications and supplements used and many more are imperative to a well conducted consultation and health history Reviewing in detail the history elements noted above Page 8 and so much more is especially crucial to the conservative provider who is interested in addressing the whole health of any given patient In addition to question regarding the chief complaint the whole health questions truly get to the why of the condition to begin with If we truly want to have the most impact on chronic degenerative conditions we must be concerned with this line of comprehensive questioning Time in a doctor s office is a precious commodity However to truly be effective change agents we must take the time to assess all the above factors affecting health understanding the time commitment involved From a good comprehensive history other evaluation procedures and tests may be recommended providing a clear clinical picture and direction for the care of those we serve A comprehensive history taking is not only critically important but is the simplest of any of the services we provide and quite frankly is of paramount importance Without any additional testing or further evaluation it is a fact that doctors can address those preventative factors spoken about previously to at least some real extent Just addressing diet lifestyle and exercise can have a profound impact on virtually everyone s health Yes additional procedures are often necessary but individual state law and proficiency training of the provider most certainly have an enormous impact on the amount of additional evaluation procedures they can employ For this reason I remind all conservative care providers that the most important thing is that we do all we can to helpfully intervene in a patient s life We have so much to offer those who seek our help with or without additional testing modalities A comprehensive history is perhaps the most important step in our being able to step into an individual s life bridge the gap and make recommendations and administer remedies that will impact and save lives The importance of the comprehensive history must not be underestimated Start with the easiest procedures It may seem simplistic to use the acronym KISS keep it simple stupid but in reality most of the time the simplest procedures are the ones that will get used the most often by the largest number of doctors There are exceptions but most of the time these are also ones that are often the most documented and validated Unfortunately it is sometimes the simplest of evaluation ANMA Page 9 procedures that get forgotten relegated to antiques under appreciated and under utilized I will next briefly describe several exam evaluation procedures from arguably the easiest to the most complex As mentioned above all providers are impacted by their respective scopes of practice Some doctors may or may not be able to perform certain procedures It is my opinion that many of the procedures listed below are well accepted and easy to perform In the case of lab procedures some conservative providers may or may not be able to perform these themselves but understanding the importance of evaluating such information either from a referral or other source is crucial clean There are many hormonal changes that can explain these visual observations Specifically blood sugar deregulation is commonly present with this presentation 9 Visual inspection Many factors contribute to experiencing toe nail fungus However it is good to note research also links this common unsightly presentation to cardiovascular disease and a weakened immune system 10 What we see with our eyes upon visual inspection is arguably the best first way to assess a patient s condition aside from obtaining a good history Often times providers routinely dismiss a thorough exam which of course involves a visual inspection Below are certain presentations that in my opinion are often overlooked or at least under appreciated assessments of a patient s overall condition or status Obviously the following list of presentations is not exhaustive The select few represented here should be reminders to all of us that we must be willing to take the time and look at the outward expressions of health through their visual presentation It is just so important for all providers to be reminded of important visual cues of health status so an accurate clinical picture is obtained and ultimately a proper health plan can be created It should also be said that a presentation noted on visual inspection may or may not absolutely reflect some health status change These visual cues are just indicators of possible and in some cases probable health status changes Presentations noted on visual inspection should be correlated to health history It is the combined influence of a proper patient intake with a thorough and comprehensive health history and visual inspection that more detailed examination procedures may be deemed necessary to find the cause of a patient s underlying dysfunction Acanthosis Nigricans The darkened skin surrounding transitional areas of the body is almost jokingly thought by some patients to be a dirty or soiled area of the skin that is difficult to get Tenia Pedis Alopecia Hair loss Many can quickly identify the significance of hair loss in certain areas of the body A loss of the lateral 1 3rd of the eyebrow has been noted to accompany many cases of hypothyroidism And a loss of hair in the lower extremities is often related to reduced vascularization and circulation related to peripheral vascular disease Pursed Lipped Breathing By the time this presentation and other signs of dyspnea present respiratory dysfunction has usually been present for some time Eighty percent of all cases of dyspnea or difficulty breathing can be found with those with a history of a pulmonary disorder So chances are if you have patients with dyspnea they may have some serious levels of respiratory dysfunction that most certainly could be affecting their ability to heal regulate their blood sugar and or generally prevent them from living with optimal health

Specifically blood sugar deregulation is commonly present with this presentation 9 Visual inspection Many factors contribute to experiencing toe nail fungus However it is good to note research also links this common unsightly presentation to cardiovascular disease and a weakened immune system 10 What we see with our eyes upon visual inspection is arguably the best first way to assess a patient s condition aside from obtaining a good history Often times providers routinely dismiss a thorough exam which of course involves a visual inspection Below are certain presentations that in my opinion are often overlooked or at least under appreciated assessments of a patient s overall condition or status Obviously the following list of presentations is not exhaustive The select few represented here should be reminders to all of us that we must be willing to take the time and look at the outward expressions of health through their visual presentation It is just so important for all providers to be reminded of important visual cues of health status so an accurate clinical picture is obtained and ultimately a proper health plan can be created It should also be said that a presentation noted on visual inspection may or may not absolutely reflect some health status change These visual cues are just indicators of possible and in some cases probable health status changes Presentations noted on visual inspection should be correlated to health history It is the combined influence of a proper patient intake with a thorough and comprehensive health history and visual inspection that more detailed examination procedures may be deemed necessary to find the cause of a patient s underlying dysfunction Acanthosis Nigricans The darkened skin surrounding transitional areas of the body is almost jokingly thought by some patients to be a dirty or soiled area of the skin that is difficult to get Tenia Pedis Alopecia Hair loss Many can quickly identify the significance of hair loss in certain areas of the body A loss of the lateral 1 3rd of the eyebrow has been noted to accompany many cases of hypothyroidism And a loss of hair in the lower extremities is often related to reduced vascularization and circulation related to peripheral vascular disease Pursed Lipped Breathing By the time this presentation and other signs of dyspnea present respiratory dysfunction has usually been present for some time Eighty percent of all cases of dyspnea or difficulty breathing can be found with those with a history of a pulmonary disorder So chances are if you have patients with dyspnea they may have some serious levels of respiratory dysfunction that most certainly could be affecting their ability to heal regulate their blood sugar and or generally prevent them from living with optimal health

ANMA invasiveness a simple dipstick UA is perhaps one of the first laboratory procedures and most commonly performed by portal of entry providers world wide So much information can be gleaned from a urinalysis Signs of blood sugar dysregulation infection kidney dysfunction and a multitude of organic disorders can be in part screened by use of this procedure all without even breaking the skin While the presence of proteinuria hematuria and or glycosuria do not in and of themselves prove that severe organic dysfunction is present they do signify probable dysfunction and necessitate further inquiry Let me pause for a moment and highlight the previously mentioned Law of 75 From a conservative provider standpoint we know that diet and exercise is paramount to optimal health One of the largest dietary shortfalls and risks to our modern Standard American Diet SAD diet is the presence of high amounts of refined sugar and lifestyles that promote blood sugar dysregulation In 1970 the average consumption of sugar was 123 pounds of sugar per person per year Today the average American consumes almost 152 pounds of sugar in one year 11 It is for this reason that I encourage doctors with whom I teach that we must all become experts in detection and correction of blood sugar disorders Yes there are many other areas of system organ dysfunction that may contribute toward a myriad of disorders However we can greatly improve a patient s health status by giving special attention to their blood sugar status From diabetes to Alzheimer s Disease screening for and improving a patient s blood sugar status can be truly revelating Most natural health providers make dietary recommendations so why not assess for this condition initially during and after treatment Why not objectively measure the results of our treatments For these reasons a dipstick UA can be a powerful tool in the assessment of virtually any patient who walks through our doors Finger Stick Glucose and A1C Since blood sugar status is so important to providers across the spectrum some simple follow up blood sugar tests make logical sense Many conservative providers some who do not have access to a full service laboratory are intimidated by the prospect of phlebotomy and lab work in general Some scopes of practice in various states are also not as accommodating to lab related follow up testing For this reason finger stick testing is a viable Page 12 option Full blood panels Obviously after a urinalysis blood chemistries via venous phlebotomy offer a huge advantage to providers First they can offer insightful information that helps providers to rule out serious conditions and send them elsewhere for crisis care Quite frankly not every patient who presents in our offices should be in our offices Serious conditions that need crisis intervention may be elusive without proper examination and testing procedures Blood chemistries can help rule in or out cardiac liver kidney electroyte infection endocrine dysfunction and other disorders Ordering full blood panels also offers great insight into the nutrition blood sugar and inflammatory status of an individual Blood analysis also helps to validate an individuals doctor s treatment approach After changing diet addressing environment exposures and addressing core deficiencies what metrics are being employed to evaluate successful treatment Blood testing provides well respected hard copy proof of successful treatment For these and other reasons full blood panels should always be a consideration As stated previously some conservative providers do not have prescriptive scope to order fundamental lab testing Many states presently approximately 27 allow elective labs to be ordered by prospective patients and general labs can also obtained via local health fair initiatives sponsored by the patient s place of employment or the local health department And as stated previously there are FDA approved finger stick options for certain chemistries providing easy non invasive testing options for those providers needing such testing options Whether a provider is ordering and interpreting labs themselves or if they are referring the patient for those services elsewhere undoubtedly the acceptability by the greater health community and the bulk of significant information that can be derived from a complete blood panel certainly makes full blood panels an option that all conservative providers must consider Case Study 1 30 year old female presenting with general achy pain in multiple joints She reported with hypertension chronic fatigue inability to lose weight and diabetes being managed with Metformin The patient was exercising ANMA on a sporadic basis and admittedly was intermittently eating a diet high in refined carbohydrates First lab results revealed significant blood sugar and triacylgylceride elevations elevated inflammatory markers and thyroid involvement The milky visual appearance of the blood serum was noted prior to her individualized health plan image 5 Approximately 4 months later normalization of most previous lab findings image 6 was achieved even though the patient was no longer taking any medications at this time The obvious changes in serum color from milky white to mostly transparent amber were largely due to change in triglyceride levels Her individualized health plan consisted of diet and lifestyle modification and addressing nutrient and hormone deficiency status Subsequent to the individualized treatment plan provided energy improved and she reported no systemic achy pains and she had lost substantial weight Spirometer It can not be overstated that our ability to inhale exhale and diffuse oxygen is paramount to every aspect of our health Our ability to breath and exchange oxygen and Co2 can affect diabetes heart disease weight loss musculoskeletal pain and a multitude of other conditions Just one area of pulmonary dysfunction COPD is expected to be the 3rd highest cause of mortality in the nation within the next couple of years 12 Previously in this article a pulsed oximeter was recommended as a screening device one that conveniently assesses pulse and oxygen levels A more accurate assessment tool designed to assess the volume of air that can be exhaled from the lungs is the spirometer This particular test is under utilized in most practices It is hardly more invasive than the use of the finger lead in the case of the oximeter It simply involves breathing forcefully through a tube An accurate measurement of ability of the lungs to move air is an easy and effective way to assess the general health status of the lungs and pulmonary function in general Many conditions including smoking obesity and poor conditioning can have a marked affect on lung volumes Many of these deficits in pulmonary function can be improved through diet and lifestyle changes We know that smoking obesity and poor lung conditioning are commonly found in our society We also know that lung function can be greatly overestimated without lung function testing For these Page 13 reasons conservative non invasive lung function testing via spirometry should be considered Case Study 2 A 48 year old male patient presented with fatigue generally felt like he was in a brain fog and intermittently out of breath The patient was a smoker and had a generally poor diet On physical exam it was found that the patient s O2 levels were reduced slightly to 91 While walking into the consulation exam room it was noted that the patient exhaled while pursing his lips Seated at rest a labored respiratory sound was noted directly after walking from the consultation chair to the exam table An expiratory wheeze was noted on ausculation but otherwise was a fairly unremarkable physical evaluation Laboratory examination revealed elevations of cholesterol and inflammatory markers such as c reactive protein In addition RBC hemoglobin and hematocrit were also noted to be elevated When found on laboratory testing some physicians will correlate elevated RBC findings to dehydration This is an obvious possibility However hypoxic conditions as may occur in smoking COPD and sleep apnea can cause increased proliferation of RBC factors that help to carry oxygen more efficiently in compromised states Therefore an increase in these values should always be correlated with a patient s overall clinical picture

as a spirometer test Carbon monoxide elevations were noted as our office finds in any patient who smokes more than 1 2 a pack a day and an obvious reduction in lung function was found as well The patient was placed on dietary changes and lifestyle modifications to include smoking cessation He commented that he knew he needed to quit smoking and other providers had made similar recommendations in the past However after seeing the testing performed in our office and having it explained in detail he now felt motivated to quit smoking Conclusion History and examination procedures can be very extensive time consuming and potentially expensive to the patient All relevant testing procedures are too numerous to list be listed here and this article is not intended to be exhaustive by any means My purpose here was to create a framework from least complicated to most complicated procedures that most conservative providers have within their scope of practice The case studies presented above highlight many of the examination procedures and diagnostic tests discussed It should be noted the primary intervention in each one of these case studies was related to diet and lifestyle prescriptions The majority of the prescriptive changes present in each case study could have been suggested without any laboratory testing Smoking cessation basic diet and exercise recommendations are the staple of most conservative providers treatment regimen So for those providers who are unable to perform additional diagnostic laboratory testing for whatever reason we know going back to the Law of 75 that the preventative services we provide save lives However additional laboratory and diagnostic testing does increase the accuracy of our findings and tailors our treatment plans to account for hidden areas of dysfunction that could not have been identified in any other way Additional laboratory and diagnostic testing also provides an often necessary element of protection to our patients and helps us validate the results of our treatment Our sick society needs aggressive prevention services now more than ever Conservative provider treatment approaches are being validated daily Our life saving and health optimizing treatment protocols are safe noninvasive and support the body by encouraging it to heal repair and self regulate As conservative providers we must continue focusing

Page 17 ANMA Why are our Jaws getting smaller as compared to our Ancestors By Minaxi Mirkal BDS DDS BCND We have all know someone in the present times who needed extraction of their wisdom teeth right Pretty common The reason given is Well third molars are non functional teeth and are most commonly associated with cysts or other benign growths Or something like your tooth seems impacted and is causing infection in your jaws Well we need to dig deeper and ask WHY The reason most wisdom need to come out is not because they are non functional teeth but because there is no room for them in our Jaws Our ancestors had perfectly fully erupted third molars and at least 10mm of space behind them while In my clinical practice I struggle to see fully erupted third molar in proper alignment anymore I see kids with crowded teeth in primary dentition baby teethwhere there should be spaces Teens with their second molars out of alignments The conventional thinking so far holds parent s genetic information in regards to tooth size and arch length discrepancy as the causative factor in this manner But that is far from the truth because we are not just genetic information from our parents but from that of their parents and our great grand parents and possibly more Also the elephant in the room is Epigenetics and what role that plays in which genes are getting expressed Epigenetic plays a crucial role in craniofacial development Our Genes are constantly eavesdropping on the information they receive form their surroundings Its it is like a Domino effect one thing leads to another Form precedes function This refers to architecture issue where things have not grown to the full genetic potential This leads to a vivous cycle where a low tongue posture encourages mouth breathing and mouth breathing further creates gut issues sympathetic activation adrenal fatigue symptoms What are some of the repercussions of smaller Jaws For one smaller jaws are associated with not enough room for tongue in our jaws leading to a low tongue posture which is a compensation for smaller jaws The tongue compensates to lie low in the mouth so it can slide back into the airway for the lack of space versus rest on the palate which is its parking spot Complete tongue to palate seal with lips closed opens up the airway turns on our parasympathetic receptors aids nasal breathing and also encourages upper jaw to grow to our full genetic potential The tongue is the nature s orthodontic expander for the upper jaw if the tongue rested in the palate correctly no one needed braces Low tongue posture leads to Obstructive sleep apnea Sleep disordered Breathing Sinusitis Seasonal Allergies Mouth Breathing Tonsil and Adenoid swelling Recurrent ear infections Muscle function influences

is difficult is to have them stay there We all know someone who did not wear their orthodontic retainer and hence their teeth shifted back to their original position Why did that happen Because the root cause of the problem is improper muscle function Teeth are crowded because of improper muscle function mainly low tongue posture Muscles exert enormous amount of force through their repeated

Page 17 ANMA Why are our Jaws getting smaller as compared to our Ancestors By Minaxi Mirkal BDS DDS BCND We have all know someone in the present times who needed extraction of their wisdom teeth right Pretty common The reason given is Well third molars are non functional teeth and are most commonly associated with cysts or other benign growths Or something like your tooth seems impacted and is causing infection in your jaws Well we need to dig deeper and ask WHY The reason most wisdom need to come out is not because they are non functional teeth but because there is no room for them in our Jaws Our ancestors had perfectly fully erupted third molars and at least 10mm of space behind them while In my clinical practice I struggle to see fully erupted third molar in proper alignment anymore I see kids with crowded teeth in primary dentition baby teethwhere there should be spaces Teens with their second molars out of alignments The conventional thinking so far holds parent s genetic information in regards to tooth size and arch length discrepancy as the causative factor in this manner But that is far from the truth because we are not just genetic information from our parents but from that of their parents and our great grand parents and possibly more Also the elephant in the room is Epigenetics and what role that plays in which genes are getting expressed Epigenetic plays a crucial role in craniofacial development Our Genes are constantly eavesdropping on the information they receive form their surroundings Its it is like a Domino effect one thing leads to another Form precedes function This refers to architecture issue where things have not grown to the full genetic potential This leads to a vivous cycle where a low tongue posture encourages mouth breathing and mouth breathing further creates gut issues sympathetic activation adrenal fatigue symptoms What are some of the repercussions of smaller Jaws For one smaller jaws are associated with not enough room for tongue in our jaws leading to a low tongue posture which is a compensation for smaller jaws The tongue compensates to lie low in the mouth so it can slide back into the airway for the lack of space versus rest on the palate which is its parking spot Complete tongue to palate seal with lips closed opens up the airway turns on our parasympathetic receptors aids nasal breathing and also encourages upper jaw to grow to our full genetic potential The tongue is the nature s orthodontic expander for the upper jaw if the tongue rested in the palate correctly no one needed braces Low tongue posture leads to Obstructive sleep apnea Sleep disordered Breathing Sinusitis Seasonal Allergies Mouth Breathing Tonsil and Adenoid swelling Recurrent ear infections Muscle function influences

ANMA Agmatine A Nutraceutical for Neuropathies By Gad M Gilad Ph D Research Gilad Gilad LLC Henderson NV Neuropathies are disfunctions of the nervous system resulting from nerve damage typically manifested in sensory e g pain and numbness autonomic and motor malfunctions Various traumatic insults result in nerve damage including nerve compressioninduced neuropathies e g lumbar sciatica and cervical radiculopathies and Carpal tunnel syndrome traumatic injuries associated neuropathies metabolic diseases e g diabetic neuropathy drug toxicity e g chemotherapy induced neuropathies infections e g post herpetic neuralgia trigeminal neuralgia fibromyalgia and other peripheral and even central e g multiple sclerosis and stroke associated neuropathic pain neuropathies It is estimated that more than 20 million people in the United States alone suffer from neuropathy of various causes NIH NINDS 2018 1 Nerve damage sets in motion a cellular stress response within the affected nerve cells comprised of a series of destructive processes which are countered by constructive molecular reactions Inability to mount an effective constructive reaction and to downregulate destructive processes results in neuronal malfunctions failure of regeneration and may eventually lead to cell death While numerous neuroprotective therapies aimed at preventing this molecular imbalance were proposed they have failed in clinical development 2 Effective treatment for neuropathy remains elusive despite decades of research Existing drug treatments are of limited efficacy and have serious adverse effects Current treatments do not address the various underlying molecular processes which are triggered by nerve damage and do not afford neuroprotection 2 In theory a single agent capable of modulating potentially synergistically multiple molecular targets acting like a molecular shotgun would prove an effective treatment for neuropathy Naturally occurring neuroprotective molecules offer tangible opportunity for developing effective therapeutics with minimal side effects e g Rountree 2015 3 Based on our discovery that agmatine is endowed with robust neuroprotective effect we have proposed that agmatine might constitute such a candidate Agmatine NH2 CH2 4NH2C NH NH discovered by Albrecht Kossel in 1910 is a ubiquitous naturally occurring molecule biosynthesized by decarboxylation of the amino acid arginine Ample studies using animal models implicate agmatine in a spectrum of diseases with unmet therapeutic needs including diabetes mellitus neurotrauma e g stroke brain and spinal cord injury glaucoma neuropathies and neuropathic pain opioid analgesia and addiction neurodegenerative diseases e g Parkinson s disease and mood e g anxiety depression and cognitive disorders The few reported clinical studies provide evidence for agmatine effectiveness in treating neuropathies 4 Multiple molecular targets are implicated in agmatine mechanisms of action including A modulation of several neurotransmitter receptors and receptor ionophores B blockade of key ionic channels C inhibition of membrane transporters D modulation of nitric oxide NO formation E modulation of polyamine metabolism F inhibition Page 21 of protein ADP ribosylation and thus interfering with cell signaling G inhibition of matrix metalloproteases MMPs enzymes implicated in nerve cell death and neuropathic pain and H inhibition of advanced glycation end AGE product formation a process involved in the pathology of diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases 4 We have therefore postulated that to exerts its beneficial neuroprotective effects agmatine interacts potentially synergistically with multiple mechanisms like a molecular shotgun hitting multiple targets critical for nerve functions Sciatica affects approximately 1 to 2 of the population In many patients the symptoms can be treated with physical therapy rest and the use of medications including nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs For many others pain can be a lingering and debilitating problem It is theorized that this pain is caused by pressure on nerve roots which may result in nerve cell degeneration The clinical trial indicates that as compared to conventional therapeutics agmatine presents a superior solution for a safe and effective treatment for sciatica Agmatine supply and metabolism While agmatine is synthesized in the body it is also acquired from the diet where it is found in low amounts in a wide variety of plant fish and animal derived foodstuff Galgano et al 2012 5 Many gastrointestinal GI bacteria produce agmatine and the significant concentrations of agmatine in the mammalian GI tract implicate microbial production as the main source of systemic agmatine 5 Agmatine sulfate the commonly used salt of agmatine is absorbed in the GI tract and rapidly within minutes distributed throughout the body it is eliminated unmetabolized by the kidneys with an apparent blood half life of about 2 hours 4 In the body agmatine is principally metabolized into urea and putrescine the diamine precursor of polyamines which are essential for viability of nerve cells Gilad and Gilad 2003 6 Additionally agmatine can also be oxidized in peripheral tissues resulting in agmatinealdehyde which may be toxic and is secreted by the kidneys 4 Small Fiber neuropathy SFN characterized by neuropathic pain as well as autonomic dysfunctions is a common pathology underlying various types of peripheral neuropathy including diabetic chemotherapy induced and cryptogenic idiopathic neuropathies Current medications are often not effective and can cause serious side effects A recent open label case series study was set to evaluate the effectiveness of agmatine sulfate in patients diagnosed with painful SFN and autonomic dysfunctions ClinicalTrials gov Identifier NCT01524666 Patients treated with 2 67 g day agmatine AgmaSet capsules containing G Agmatine brand Human clinical trials have shown that long term years treatment with high doses of dietary agmatine sulfate 1 335 to 3 560 mg day is safe lacking adverse effects 7 8 In a controlled randomized trial ClinicalTrials gov Identifier NCT00405041 designed to assess the effectiveness of agmatine in herniated lumbar disc associated radiculopathy commonly termed sciatica patients treated with agmatine 2 67 g per day for 14 days as an add on to conventional treatments have experienced significantly greater pain relief and improved quality of life as compared to placebo treated patients 7 of agmatine sulfate for 2 months as an add on to conventional treatments have experienced a highly significant reduction in neuropathic pain This study indicates that dietary agmatine sulfate has a significant effect in reducing neuropathic pain intensity associated with painful SFN resistant to treatment with conventional neuropathic pain medications 9 In summary the evidence strongly supports the utility of agmatine as a safe and effective nutraceutical treatment superior to existing therapeutics for people suffering from neuropathies

2020 the World Health Organization declared COVID 19 to be a global pandemic due largely to the virulent nature of the virus Since the latter part of the 19th century we have seen the origin and rise of various chronic and degenerative diseases CDDs such as heart disease cancer diabetes age related macular degeneration AMD and scores of others The Global Burden of Disease study seems to indicate that up to 11 million people a year die due to consuming toxic and or processed food Some believe that up to 11 million were killed during the holocaust This means that we experience the equivalent of a holocaust every year from CDDs Is this not a pandemic If so why no media attention If it is why is there so much government and media attention on say COVID 19 and not on the CDD pandemic Further the World Health Organization says that CDDs are the main causes of death and disability worldwide The rate of disease from these conditions is accelerating globally advancing across every region and pervading all socioeconomic classes As Richard Lear has pointed out there are over 36 diseases that have doubled since 1990 and of those 20 that have tripled and 16 that have quadrupled These have no infectious germs involved and there are no recognized cures Around 1960 less than 5 of adults in the U S were considered obese Today a staggering 42 are considered obese Overweight alone with its range of deleterious health effects should be declared a pandemic IMHO More than 65 of all U S Adults use prescription medication Most of the people over 40 who come to see me are on some kind of pharmaceutical drug And most know that while those drugs are providing some relief they are often making things worse in the long run To our chagrin even in the alternative natural and holistic ANH practitioner community many people have a cupboard full of vitamins and other pills most of which they are not even sure are working In 1965 only 4 of the U S population had a CDD Today according to the CDC 60 of Americans have at least one CDD four out of ten have more than one While western medical systems scramble with the same crazy making methods surgery chemo radiation vaccines etc many ANH practitioners search for the magic anti oxidant pill a cosmic charm to wear on a wrist the next super vitamin etc Often neither system TWM or ANH do not actually get to the heart of CDDs Herein I pose a number of questions that are aimed to provoke us to actually come up with root cause protocols to address the meteoric rise of CDDs to arm ourselves against the present COVID 19 threat and to major

Page 24 ANMA yes this is partly a conspiracy to have you dig study research and learn as well as making some stops and starts in your plan to live longer stronger I am sticking closely to the same theme largely because the rise and subsequent tsunami of CDDs is the 10 000 pound elephant standing in the living room that very very few are actually addressing effectively Do not be alarmed as I

dysregulation non native electro magnetic fields NNEMFs glyphosate metal toxicity etc Most of these health bandits are various manifestations of how many humans have become disconnected from the nature context that God created so that humans and animals might thrive While this paper will contain a few cites and references consider it to be more like a fireside heart to heart chat than a peer reviewed scientific proof While our heart has a hard time accepting what the mind rejects I m asking you to give your heart permission to hear the gravity of this theme and to begin to ask the right questions with regard to the true pandemic that is needing our earnest and unified attention Of course none of us wants to be infected with COVID 19 but it would be crazy to focus on this virus to the neglect of the steady march of CDDs that we are all going to be victims of if we are not vigilant We must come up with actual root cause protocols that also address lifestyle environment and dietary factors that will turn the tide of the CDDs that threaten the viability of the human race The current traditional western medical system TWM focuses on managing disease not curing it or even considering what the root cause s might be Is the root cause of me succumbing to an illness due to an airborne virus or the fact that my immune system is constantly being worn down by a myriad of health bandits Methinks it is more the latter Since it is not possible to have an epidemic of a genetic disease something else is going on here For the vast majority of cases contrary to current TWM thought cancer diabetes heart disease AMD and most other CDDs are not genetic they are epigenetic They are conceived and promoted by various lifestyle environment and diet issues It is time that ANH practitioners teach people how to take back their health and get to the bottom of what is causing the tsunami of CDDs that plague us today i e get to root cause Thereby if my immune system is robust then inhaling some new viruses will not take me down Most of the CDDs that result from the health bandits below have oxidative stress and inflammation at their roots with one molecule peroxynitrite implicated in virtually all of them Have you read Richard Lear s works The time energy and money that is presently being poured into addressing COVID 19 is astonishing While it is a tragedy that tens of thousands die from various viruses each year and many thousands have died globally thus far by mid March 2020 pause for a moment and think of 11 million dying this year from totally preventable CDDs Say it to yourself slowly E l e ve n m i l l i o n Simple math would tell us that over 30 100 EACH DAY are dying from CDDs Totally preventable CDDs The TWM system of healthcare has too much hubris and internal resistance to radically alter an economic machine that rewards everyone but the patient by managing not curing these diseases We ANH practitioners need to act and act now We must settle for nothing less than root cause s and aim to empower our clients to actually take their health back for themselves At a minimum we must eschew any practices that reflect the current TWM tradition of pillfor the ill drug for the bug we must press on to root cause s And we must resolve ourselves to actually teach and train patients to measure monitor and maximize their own health as reflected in robust adaptive capacity which consists of metabolic balance and vital reserves They especially need to learn to start asking the right questions To wit Better to ask What things have set the stage and even triggered my CDD in my lifestyle environment and diet Rather than asking What supplements can I take to quell pain fatigue poor libido etc Have we considered the role that all parts

can add a single hour to his life And why are you worried about clothing Observe how the lilies of the field grow they do not toil nor do they spin yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his

Do not worry then saying What will we eat or What will we drink or What will we wear for clothing For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you So do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will care for itself Each day has enough trouble of its

ANMA How would a food server look at you if you asked for gluten free pizza in 1997 Dr Chris Knobbe author of a must get book on how to use diet to prevent and treat macular degeneration provides irrefutable evidence that four things in our food supply conspired together to bring an onslaught of CDDs AMD being one of them His book is a musthave treasure buy it yesterday Refined grains sugar trans fats hydrogenated fats and vegetable oils polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFAS are the smoking guns in his argument I repeat this book is a must get How pervasive are these in our diet By reading labels on nearly any box food salad dressing bottle or any other processed food how possible is it to avoid any of the above four What else happened in the early 1990s that could have triggered a more precipitous rise in CDDs How many cell phone subscriptions per person in the U S were there in 1990 How many in each subsequent year How about today Page 30 As an ANH practitioner I am fiercely dedicated to helping people get to the root of their health problems But as noble as that sounds it is not as easy as it might appear It is far too simple to treat a pain in an elbow or daily headaches without considering underlying systemic causes of such which is what most of my TWM colleagues are often forced to do And the glorious crescendo of that medical visit The prescription That can be done in eight minutes going to the root takes way more time Time Magazine way back in 2004 gave the world its first look at implicating an underlying common denominator of nearly all chronic disease inflammation The question is however how do we specifically address what the average person needs to stop and start doing in order to actually get to the root of inflammation Inflammation is just a fancy term for and could result from the following aggravate pressure starve overload insult or bruise Therefore how do the following collectively contribute to oxidative stress inflammation in my body HOHUM Heated and or Oxidized and or Hydrogenated and or UnMetabolizable PUFAS 3G 4G 5G glyphosate artificial sole shoes iron enriched food lack of iodine overload of blue spectrum light lack of sunlight out of balance microbiome mercury in my teeth GMO food and dirty electricity The Nine Bandits at the Root of the Yearly Holocaust Pandemic When one of my recently adopted heroes submitted his summary of over 8 000 published studies that implicate a single smoking gun molecule in the rise of over 36 CDDs since 1990 to news agencies some members of congress the president Obama at that time etc he got a big fat ZERO response Why Really Take a serious pause break and ask Why Below is a brief description of the top nine health bandits that we face in early 2020 Taken together they represent the collective and potential roots of our global pandemic that eclipses probably the worst that COVID 19 will ever be Refer to my paper in the July 2019 issue of JANMA for much more detail on the following Remember I am posing lots of questions to provoke you to read my previous paper and many other resources The time is now for us to be rigorous not only in our quest for health truth but for LED health action Some of these set the stage for CDDs while others might be thought of as a triggers or catalysts ANMA Some important questions to ask about the following nine 1 Toxins Toxicity How many chemicals the vast majority will always be considered toxic to human physiology were invented produced last year How much glyphosate is in my urine Ever been tested for such Men Have you realized that war has been declared upon your testicles Have you watched Dr Tracy Gapin s YouTube presentation and NOT have your jaw drop Could Dr Gapin be correct in his clinical observation that plastics and other toxic compounds are at the root of the avalanche of endocrine disruption for both men and women Are you familiar with various studies that showed male frogs were turned into female frogs that actually lay eggs and reproduce just by low exposure to the weed killer Atrazine Are you aware that municipal water systems do not filter this herbicide out How many micrograms of antibiotics birth control pills statins etc are in your drinking water How could you find out Men Did you know you are on birth control One hundred million women worldwide are on estradiol the main component of birth control pills do you know how effectively it is filtered out of your water Guess Women Are you aware of the effects of these chemicals on your health What about the GMO soybeans with high phytoestrogen How does this affect testosterone levels in both men and women When was the last time you visited www ewg org Have you printed out their dirty dozen and clean 15 and taped it to your frig door If not why not Have you thought about what role the toxins in carpet car upholstery paint and personal hygiene products have in your health Have you considered the cost savings of buying toxinladen food over years taking into consideration health productivity money etc versus buying organic nonGMO food 2 NNEMFs Non Native Electromagnetic Fields Frequencies Which EMFs are made by God Which ones are manmade What are the EMFs that the sun universe and earth produce that are necessary for life on earth What are the negative health effects of not having proper exposure to God made Native EMFs Clearly all things electrical electromagnetic are of enormous convenience But at what cost At what level does the benefit produced outweigh the growing cost to our health Are you familiar with Dr Martin Pall s work Page 31 cited throughout this paper Could we be at a crossroads in human health with the 5G rollout Are you familiar with the many studies which point to a potential tipping point with this issue When does the correlation between many of the CDDs and NNEMFs cross over into causation How do you intuitively feel about the connection of the unbridled use of NNEMFs negatively affecting human health How aware are you of the research showing that the EMFs used for things like smart meters cell phones and even an electric clock radio are harmful What role does your overall physiology vital reserves and metabolic balance play in how NNEMFs affect your health Did you know the cord for your nightstand light even if the light is not turned on still radiates dangerous electric fields Would that hold true for an extension cord with nothing plugged into it What happens to your body when you walk into the electromagneticallyradiated field of refrigerators lights and clock radios Do you feel it How about being in a room with the long fluorescent tube lights or CFLs Ever experience headache or eye strain from such Just because you don t manifest a strong headache or other pain does this mean that EMFs are NOT affecting your health in some way Quiz How many studies did Dr Pall compile outlining the eight areas of NNEMFs physiological damage disruption including DNA fertility neurology apoptosis oxidative stress endocrine hormones intracellular calcium and cancer What is EMF vomit Do you measure the dirty electricity DE level in your home How can you block this vile EMF When did you last visit www greenwavefilters com Are you aware of some of the demonstrated negative health effects of DE see Magda Havas cited herein Have you tried to use a blue light blocker app on your phone or PC and then tried not using it Does the blue light hurt your eyes and head like it does me What does this tell us What are some of the negative health effects of blue light when it is out of proportion with the other sister spectrums red etc Are you aware of how much LESS radiation you experience just by a little more distance say from your cell phone Could you put a timer on your home WIFI during night hours to help make your sleep time more protected from NNEMFs How about turning off the circuit breaker to your bedroom Is there a smart meter

ANMA How would a food server look at you if you asked for gluten free pizza in 1997 Dr Chris Knobbe author of a must get book on how to use diet to prevent and treat macular degeneration provides irrefutable evidence that four things in our food supply conspired together to bring an onslaught of CDDs AMD being one of them His book is a musthave treasure buy it yesterday Refined grains sugar trans fats hydrogenated fats and vegetable oils polyunsaturated fatty acids PUFAS are the smoking guns in his argument I repeat this book is a must get How pervasive are these in our diet By reading labels on nearly any box food salad dressing bottle or any other processed food how possible is it to avoid any of the above four What else happened in the early 1990s that could have triggered a more precipitous rise in CDDs How many cell phone subscriptions per person in the U S were there in 1990 How many in each subsequent year How about today Page 30 As an ANH practitioner I am fiercely dedicated to helping people get to the root of their health problems But as noble as that sounds it is not as easy as it might appear It is far too simple to treat a pain in an elbow or daily

Page 34 ANMA aforementioned paper Context connectedness describes how created beings thrive in their living environment How long does a fish out of water live How long would a polar bear live in a desert Similarly how does a human thrive who spends most of its sleeping hours isolated from earth in a sheetrock box immersed in an ocean of NNEMFs is disconnected from its context fueled by devitalized processed food and fostering a lifestyle of fight freeze flight and fright If Humans were created by God barefoot naked and in a garden surrounded by a nutrient laden and microbiallyrich sun filled earth grounded outdoor environment and then removed from that context and placed into a sunless ubiquitously toxic sterile and artificial indoor one could humanity thrive Are many of us simply like that fish out of water When was the last time you were barefoot outside on dirt or grass or sand for any length of time be honest What are the reasons you feel so awesome when barefoot in the sun on a sandy saltwater beach How long would it take for your gut microbiome to repopulate by sitting under a bush and reading a book as you breathe in countless microbes Have you done Shinrin Yoku How many minerals do you think your ancestors received by bathing in streams ponds lakes and the ocean Did you get your 15 minutes of sun each side on your bare body today Does not your gut instinct tell you that you cannot have great health without intentionally moving your body walking swimming cycling etc Surely you have mastered getting adequate hydration with filtered water right 5 Magnesium Iron Copper and Mineral Dysregulation How many hours have you spent studying the www rcp123 org site Last year I wrote the following in the July 2019 JANMA Stunning research has concluded that one of the biggest culprits at the root of nearly all CDDs has to do with misplaced or overloaded iron and copper deficiency along with a few other key nutrients especially magnesium Added iron to our food supply is literally poisoning us Nearly nine months later after much clinical time with clients I am even more convinced that we have missed the boat with respect to mainstream mineral savvy I deep dove into the Root Cause Protocol at the www rcp123 org site All I can say is that ANH practitioners TWM ones as well should go there and compare their clinical outcomes with that of practitioners that prescribe the Root Cause Protocol Here are some salient questions to help us help patients and even ourselves you will find answers at the www rcp123 org site What happens to our magnesium reserves when we experience stress How does our body deal with even a little excess iron What happens to our body s level of inflammation without adequate copper to support ceruloplasmin you really must find the answer to this question What is the best source of bio available copper ANMA these so called natural foods are our arch enemies Perhaps this wasn t the case in the distant past but clearly we live in a very different world than just a hundred years ago In fact when I was growing up in the 60 s and 70 s I ate Wonder bread with Oscar Meyer bologna and Miracle Whip sandwiches gross and repulsive by my healthy standards today In my day there was no gluten sensitivity or ADHD there might have been one autistic child in my entire school district Peanuts and strawberries were eaten by all kids except a rare few An overweight kid in my grade was the exception I want to emphasize that if you have any CDD unless you have a lot of money for expensive tests then stop these now and don t start them up until you start making progress away from your CDD s Here is my list of the Suspect Foods see the previous article for a fuller explanation of each What does your gut tell you about the reference range on blood lab reports for serum ferritin levels being 20380 Corn If you prescribed iron to a client whose ferritin was 20 without considering other factors could this be unwittingly inducing more inflammation Gluten laden foods Have you read either of the books Dumping Iron by P D Mangan or Iron The Most Toxic Metal by Jym Moon Do you have mercury fillings in your teeth Have you researched the possible effects of such About how many chemical reactions is magnesium involved with in your body Isn t it about time to go research www rcp123 org If you are a man over 18 or a post menopause woman do you have a good reason why you should not donate blood every 56 days When did you last have blood labs run 6 Suspect Foods that Clearly Contribute to the Rise of CDDs In the last paper I wrote on this topic I said Many of these foods have been considered healthy in the past And some might be just fine for you They will be exposed for what they really do to contribute to obesity autoimmunity CVD diabetes etc Many of Peanuts Nightshade vegetables Eggs Dairy Refined Sugars and artificial sweeteners Soy Lectins 7 Sleep If you are over 40 how is your sleep Be honest Are you one of about a third of Americans who suffer from sleep disorders How many sleep disorders are there When does our body heal When we are running around If you do not deeply sleep can you fully heal If it is true that deep restorative sleep is the ONLY way we heal what are we doing when we take medications to treat a pain but do not fix our sleep How many times do you get up to use the restroom in the middle of the night Was that the case when you were twelve years old You get to bed before 9 30 right Since you read my last paper you have been taping your mouth shut before bed right um not kidding You move heaven and earth to avoid blue Page 35 light or food for 4 hours prior to bed time right Do you sleep better when you turn your bedroom circuit breaker off Any reason you can think of to NOT try this for a week Of course your cellphone and WIFI units are off when you sleep right Now that you have been sleeping with a grounding sheet you will never go back to sleeping ungrounded right 8 Leaky and Dysbiotic Gut In my last paper I wrote A number of factors over the last 40 years have contributed to our microbiome gut buddies being out of control When we are not in synchrony with the other 90 of the genetic material that comprises US microbes in our gut and all over our body we suffer an increase in CDD Nearly all allergies sensitivities and intolerances start here How are your gut buddies bacteria fungi viruses parasites How many remain after all the antibiotics you have taken How could you coax them back Have you read Eat Dirt by Josh Axe How about The Dirt Cure by Maya Shetreat klein Is your gut leaky Is there a such thing as a bad microbe How do they get out of balance and some species take over your intestines Do you have leaky sinuses Leaky brain You have envisioned swallowing a tiny hand grenade when you swallow Ibuprofen right What is it called when our own immune system begins to attack our gut What has been your experience with Sovereign Lab s colostrum to heal your gut What about L Glutamine Surely you have been restoring cell tocell communication with ION Gut Health www ionbiome com How is your fermented vegies program going along with eating more resistant starch foods 9 Un relenting Stressors In my last paper I wrote All the health bandits listed above are stressors Psyco mental stress is at an all time high Many of the modern stressors are a big reason why immune neurological and endocrine systems weaken and fail Stress threatens homeostasis and is provoked by physiological emotional or external stressors this process then fires up our sympathetic nervous system SNS and the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal HPA axis and the cascade of events those entail Multiple doors then open for diseases According to recent research chronic inflammation is one result of relentless stressors

can think of to NOT try this for a week Of course your cellphone and WIFI units are off when you sleep right Now that you have been sleeping with a grounding sheet you will never go back to sleeping ungrounded right 8 Leaky and Dysbiotic Gut In my last paper I wrote A number of factors over the last 40 years have contributed to our microbiome gut buddies being out of control When we are not in synchrony with the other 90 of the genetic material that comprises US microbes in our gut and all over our body we suffer an increase in CDD Nearly all allergies sensitivities and intolerances start here How are your gut buddies bacteria fungi viruses parasites How many remain after all the antibiotics you have taken How could you coax them back Have you read Eat Dirt by Josh Axe How about The Dirt Cure by Maya Shetreat klein Is your gut leaky Is there a such thing as a bad microbe How do they get out of balance and some species take over your intestines Do you have leaky sinuses Leaky brain You have envisioned swallowing a tiny hand grenade when you swallow Ibuprofen right What is it called when our own immune system begins to attack our gut What has been your experience with Sovereign Lab s colostrum to heal your gut What about L Glutamine Surely you have been restoring cell tocell communication with ION Gut Health www ionbiome com How is your fermented vegies program going along with eating more resistant starch foods 9 Un relenting Stressors In my last paper I wrote All the health bandits listed above are stressors Psyco mental stress is at an all time high Many of the modern stressors are a big reason why immune neurological and endocrine systems weaken and fail Stress threatens homeostasis and is provoked by physiological emotional or external stressors this process then fires up our sympathetic nervous system SNS and the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal HPA axis and the cascade of events those entail Multiple doors then open for diseases According to recent research chronic inflammation is one result of relentless stressors

Page 36 ANMA Which one s of the above 8 bandits are your kryptonite Why are you here on earth Where are you at with respect to the flight freeze fight fright cycle Since one of life s greatest stressors is a lack of purpose and lack of love how are you combatting this stressor Are you convinced God has you here on purpose and for a purpose You are aware of His love for you right When you know that God has your back because you have given Him your heart gee back for a heart seems like a fair trade is this not a complete game changer With the One who has Created the heavens and the earth on His resume who would not want to partner with Him When you know you are loved and forgiven then you can love and forgive all who betrayed you and stole from you right Is this not stress relief How can Prozac compete Conclusion For nearly thirty years since around 1990 the health of the U S population has been challenged like never before Up to 1990 starting in the late 1800s amidst a growing backdrop of key nutrient deficient toxin laden and processed foods increasingly toxic environment a swarm of nefarious NNEMFs a steady disconnect from nature in general and the continual legislated mandate of iron et al added to the food supply the average middle aged person has had a hard time just maintaining reasonable health Getting a good night sleep became a challenge due to a rapid increase in new stressors noxious light fluorescent CFL LEDs and a paucity of critical nutrients such as magnesium Of course the steady rise in prevalence of the two wicked cousins fructose sugars in general and oxidized vegetable oils HOHUM PUFAS only poured gasoline on the chronic disease fires After around1990 the gates of biological hell were opened by allowing glyphosate to be sprayed directly on crops personal carry cellular phones increased and antibiotics of every imaginable kind became ubiquitous The human microbiome and physiology had reached a breaking point One common pathway of all the above is electron banditry AKA oxidative stress There is really only one true underlying cause of disease Cells that malfunction Cells malfunction due to deficiency toxicity and miscommunication disconnectedness The above Nine Bandits all contribute directly or indirectly to cellular malfunction Malfunctioning cells then manifest in any of the 12 500 disease symptoms that people experience due to our own unique biological individuality This results in over 170 million Americans being affected with at least one of the CDDs that are germless and have no cure via the TWM system But have you done this math lately increasing toxins especially HOHUM PUFAS glyphosate atrazine NNEMFs essential nutrients vitamins G S N W X Mg Fe Cu dysregulation 9 Suspect Foods restorative sleep thriving microbiome relentless stressors 36 CDDs that have doubled since 1990 What is the yearly cost of neglecting the truth and reality of the above conclusion The human body was designed by God with unfathomable precision and love It is therefore designed to operate without ceasing in order to maintain homeostatic and thriving vitality In order experience this level of thrive we must stop certain things and start others as a result of environmental stressors that have been introduced in the last 150 years or so What is your plan to live longer stronger Does it include pure water with minerals as your only beverage and herbal teas and coffee only if you don t need it If you cannot function without morning coffee what is that telling you Say this number over and over 2 77 trillion dollars Have you either eliminated all the Suspect Foods or proven which ones are not compatible with where your physiology is at 11 Million dead each year from PREVENTABLE causes Do you have a serious plan to get mega doses of vitamin G N S W and X Does this equate to a pandemic As I pen this on March 12 2020 with the WHO declaring COVID 19 a pandemic and President Trump declaring no more incoming travel from Europe everyone is freaking out because of this virus It is awful that tens of thousands will die due to COVID 19 and maybe a lot more And we grieve for the more than 290 000 people worldwide who die each year from various flu viruses But again I turn your attention to 11 million deaths per year from PREVENTABLE causes To what degree are we majoring on minors and minoring on majors One last time Say it slowly to yourself eleven million deaths per year The question that we must keep asking is What thing s changed in the course of the last 100 years to set the stage for the steady rise in CDDs and what things changed just a few recent decades that would trigger an exponential increase in the pandemic plague of CDDs that no one is talking about Have you identified which of the 9 Bandits are stagesetters and which are potential triggers in your health journey Page 37 ANMA What are you going to do in order to eliminate greatly reduce home toxin exposure Have you listed at least six practical things you will do in order to create an NNEMF proof environment Is there right now in your frig and pantry ONLY nonGMO and organic food C mon you can do it Have you implemented your Supplements from only Whole Food program yet Do you daily Clarify calibrate and rehearse your purpose for showing up on planet earth Have you committed to memory Proverbs 3 5 6 in the

war on iron copper mineral dysregulation coming How many times have you donated blood since I nearly begged you to in July of 2019 How much time have you spent devouring the wisdom and practices of www rcp123 org You have downloaded and printed out and poured over the Root Cause Protocol right How is your intermittent fasting coming along One or two meals a day max right You are getting at least some quality protein every meal right How much have you gotten into nature and how much nature has gotten into you lately Walks Hikes Hangouts in forests and parks under trees Swimming in lakes and ponds Of course barefoot and as much skin showing to the sun without offending the planet gets extra Docbob points Since July of 2019 you have made several batches of wild fermented foods like sauerkraut right And are you now persuaded that you have been created in God s image and progressing greatly in refining your love relationship with God your creator architect and friend and learning more and more how to better love all people Do you want to live to 100 and be thriving to the end These things are exactly what I am committed to for myself As a clinician these are exactly what I
