Can we Lose Weight or get rid of Diabetes without Changing Anything?

The resounding answer to this question is a big NO!

We all see things on TV and other media along with the internet and the message is the same, if you buy our product we can help you get rid of diabetes without changing your eating habits.

Folks this “ain’t” ever going to work. If you have cancer, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, Autism, learning problems, Crohn’s disease, or anything else (most people can recover from these problems if they change their lives) there is an excellent chance your body can heal itself if you change everything in your life. The first thing is changing your food from sugar, grains, potatoes, vegetable oil, MSG, HFCS, toxins in water, and air pollution (in door).

After all this is said the point of this newsletter is that I have found a new product with some research technology from 2008 that appears to let people lose about 28 pounds in 10 weeks by drinking a healthy water infusion fruit extraction in a non-toxic bottle. The product is not expensive and it tastes great.

I am including the article about the African Mango/Irvingia extract that is put into the Reign water from Beyond Organic. The information is excellent and information from Jordan Rubin that owns Beyond Organic is also outstanding.

As usual I do not recommend anything that I have not done so I have ordered our fruit infusion and of course I do not eat any processed foods or sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup. You can check out the products on my website www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com

 

Information on Reign Fruit Infusion to lose weight

 

This is clinical trial information that you can look up or read below on the African Mango.  The weight loss benefits are in the studies.

The Reign Fruit Infusion drink from Beyond Organic www.drbobod.mybeyondorganic.com has the same amount of African Mango/Irvingia in it as was used in this study (150 mg).

 

If you or family and friends are trying to lose weight I would suggest that you try this product. Take 2 bottles a day on an empty stomach and see how it works for you and others. The results look pretty impressive.

 

Please let me know if any of you need any questions answered.

 

African Mango: What if you found out that there was a super food that when tested on humans was found to help the average person lose an average of 28 pounds in 10-weeks?

In a controlled study published in the Journal of Nutrition 2008,

people taking this new compound lost 28 pounds over a 10-week

period compared to less than 3 pounds in the placebo group.

 

Different than other weight loss studies that mandate at least

some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not

alter their diet in any way. What is this super compound you might ask?

It’s called Irvingia and it’s found in African Mango. This new compound has shown better weight loss results than any hormone, drug, or food in medical history! Irvingia works in 4 Fantastic ways:

 

First, it works with adiponectin to increase insulin sensitivity

 

Second, it balances the hormone Leptin which signals your

brain to burn fat

 

Third, decreases amount of blood glucose that turns into fat

 

Fourth, it blocks the enzyme amylase from digesting starches

that would have become sugar.

In the 2 most popular clinical studies done on Irvingia (African mango) 150mg was taken twice daily and participants lost 12.8 pounds in 4 weeks and 28 pounds in 10 weeks.

 

The highest quality product that contains African Mango and that is easily obtained and easily consumed is Reign Fruit

Infusion drink made by Beyond Organic.

 

Clinical Studies:

African Mango
After 10 weeks on 150 milligrams of African mango twice a day, patients weighed 23.32 lbs pounds less than patients given placebo. The African mango group lost 5.1 inches in waist circumference and lost 4.4% more body fat than placebo group. Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol values were also decreased.

IGOB131, a novel seed extract of the West African plant Irvingia gabonensis, significantly reduces body weight and improves metabolic parameters in overweight humans in a randomized double-blind placebo controlled investigation. Lipids in Health and Disease. 2009;(8):7.

After one month of 1.05 grams of African mango three times a day, patients lost 8.8 pounds, 1.8 inches of hip size and 2.4 inches of waist circumference. Patients on placebo did not significantly lose weight or decrease size.

More Weight Loss than Any

Other Discovery in History!

In a breakthrough that may reverse today’s epidemic of obesity, a natural compound has been discovered that circumvents the molecular factors involved in obesity.

 

In a recent controlled study, people taking this new compound lost an average of 28 pounds in a 10-week period.  Unlike other weight-loss studies that mandate at least some moderation in food intake, these study participants did not alter their diet in any way!

 

There have been many drugs, hormones and supplements introduced over the years to help with weight loss, probably the most notable being Leptin.  When scientists discovered that Leptin signaled the brain to burn fat, they couldn’t have been more excited.  When given to mice, Leptin caused weight loss of 40% after only 33 days.  The problem was that Leptin did not work in Humans due to our “Leptin Resistance” keeping the Leptin from entering our cells and doing its job.

 

Another problem with weight-loss supplements is the “survival instincts” of the fat cells themselves.  Much like cancer cells, fat cells deploy several survival mechanisms when their existence is threatened.  No supplement, hormone, or drug has ever been able to circumvent the natural ability of fat cells to propagate and retain excess fat – until now!

 

Introducing Irvingia – an extract from African Mango found in Reign Fruit Infusion.

 

Irvingia has been shown to work via multiple pathways to promote effective fat loss.

 

  1. Reducing the absorption of sugar      (inhibiting a-amylase activity)
  2. Reducing glucose levels and      insulin induced lipogenesis (A.K.A reduced insulin sensitivity)
  3. Inhibiting the conversion of      glycerol to triglycerides (reducing fat cell triglycerides and the      glucose-3-phophate dehydrogenase enzyme)
  4. Reducing Leptin resistance      (reducing CRP binding to Leptin)
  5. Lowering serum Leptin levels (Leptin      unable to be used by the cells)
  6. Increasing anti-inflammatory,      anti-atherogenic, and anti-diabetic effects (increasing adiponectin      levels)

 

With all of these benefits working together, weight-loss was only one of the benefits of Irvingia shown in these studies.

 

Weight Loss Glucose Levels LDL Levels

28 pounds

Down 22%

Down 27%

Adiponectin   Levels Serum Leptin   Levels CRP Levels

Up 160%

Down 49%

Down 52%

 

These studies found that the dosage of Irvingia required to produce these results is 150 mg taken twice daily.

 

Beyond Organic’s Reign Fruit Infusion has 150 mg of this compound in each bottle. Two bottles per day are all you need to reap these rewards.

I am tired of the Media Blaming the Public for Obesity and Doctors “We don’t Know” When it comes to Disease

We live in an age when almost no one takes blame when they do something wrong and or they blame someone else for what they did wrong.

We have a gated/guarded community close to where we live, and they had someone vandalizing unoccupied homes. This happened about six times, so the security people set a house up and waited for the vandals. It ended up that three boys were doing the damage and the security people took the boys to the local sheriff’s office where their parents were called to come and bail them out. Two of the parents were surprised and shocked that their kids would something like this and were ready to punish their boys on the spot as they took them home.

The third mother got all indignant and yelling that her little dear would never do something like vandalism and she was going to sue the security police and the sheriff’s department. The little vandal was caught in the commission of a crime and the mother denied it could happen.

Does this sound familiar?

If you are obese or at least over weight, just watch the media on a daily basis as they do stories or interviews with skinny anorexic people that probably complain about being fat when they have gained 5 pounds. The implications are always that we don’t exercise, and we eat too much. Tommy Thompson said that “We just eat too dare much”. Unfortunately the media will never report that the “deck” is stacked against everyone that eats food from a grocery store.

The most blatant conspiracy involving overweight people is soft drinks headed up by Coke Cola. A 20 oz soft drink has 55 milligrams of salt, NaCl, plus high fructose corn syrup. The HFCS is in the drink to cover up the taste of the salt and the salt is in the drink to make you thirsty so you will drink more.

What is the problem with HFCS that is in almost every processed food we buy in regular grocery stores?

If I gave you a bunch of candy bars made with sugar and ask you to eat them until you wanted to quit, you might eat a couple but because your sugar level went up, your insulin system with leptin would kick in and send a signal to your brain that you had enough and you would quit eating the candy bars.

If on another day I gave you a bunch of candy bars made with high fructose corn syrup and told you to eat until you didn’t want any more you would eat and eat and we don’t know when you would stop because the leptin and insulin system would never send a signal to your brain to stop.

My point of this is that if you or I are at fault over something then we ought to stand up and do the right thing but when it is not our fault or when only part of something is not our fault then we need to fight back.

Agriculture and food manufactures are stacking the deck against us and they are creating disease at our expense just so they can make massive amounts of money. I am not opposed to making money but not when integrity is lost. A lot of people believe that their government is protecting them from unsavory corporations but most of the time they are protecting the multinational multibillion dollar corporations and slamming the small companies who do not have enough to compete with government lawyers.

To add insult to injury our medical system that is run by drug corporations keep lying to us. If you ask a doctor what causes cancer you will get a blank look and he or she will say “We don’t know” but the truth is there is a cause for everything but it is not in doctors or drug corporations best economic interest to cure you or prevent.

We see ads on TV for drugs for fibromyalgia and the narrator says “Thought to be caused by over active nerves”. What a line! “I am taking a “Statin drug” for my cholesterol because diet and exercise did not work. This is bull “stuff”. The reason diet and exercise did not work is that they were told not to eat fat (there are healthy fats and unhealthy fats) so they ate carbohydrates instead. Folks, carbohydrates are the direct cause of cholesterol and triglycerides. Doctors, through drug corporations don’t want you to know the truth because you might get well and not need so many expensive drugs.

Obesity and diabetes is another example of a failed system making billions of dollars over your misfortune. If the food was not spiked with excessive salt and high fructose corn syrup (or excessive consumption of fruit with high fructose) we would not be having these problems. Child hood cancer and obesity are running hand in hand and medicine is doing nothing but writing prescriptions for drugs.

Cancer is made to be a big mysterious disease that no one knows how to cure but the truth be known cancer is just a few cells gone wrong (we all have cancers cells in our bodies from day to day or from time to time). The problem is that the cancer cells get into a body that has little quality immune system, flooded with sugar, MSG, and other chemicals and the cancer cells go nuts growing with wild abandon when they should be killed by our bodies. As they grow and are finally discovered by medicine, the big chemicals (chemo), knives (scalpels), and radiation are brought in to kill the cancer cells and most of the good surrounding cells. After a few months when you are about to expire or run out of money you are told there is nothing modern medicine can do for you so prepare to meet your maker.

What is the solution? In my opinion we need integrity in government and corporations.

We need a healthy food system, a healthy agriculture system, an honest media system that tells the truth no matter what their advertisers say. I don’t think this is likely to happen so what should we do to help ourselves and change the system.

Don’t eat anything that is advertised on TV; eat local food even if we have to go “underground” to hide our actions from the government and greedy corporations. Complain and put pressure on corporations like Walmart, Kroger, Monsanto (probably the most evil corporation in the world) that we want to be treated in a healthful way.

The most important thing to do is get cheap out of your mindset when it comes to food. The politicians want cheap food so you will spend the “extra” money left over from food on things like new cars, big screen TV’s, houses that we can’t afford so that our brains are so warped with distractions that we will not realize they are “shafting” us. The is like the old Jerry Reid song “She got all the gold and he got the shaft”

I don’t mean that we should not have nice things but we need to put quality food at the top of the important things in life and stop thinking cheap. When we go to restaurants and grocery stores we are always surrounded with cheap. Save ten cents here and a nickel there but while we are doing it we buy soft drinks, processed “foods” and chemically dead fruits and vegetable from all over the world instead of locally grown healthy food.

It is time to change your little corner of the world. If everyone takes one little step to improvement we can change the world and our health.

Why would anyone think it is cool to be sick and on a bunch of medicine that makes you worse, not better?

Remember that all disease is preventable with a healthy life style no matter what your doctor or the TV says.

Why are Doctors killing us?

 

I had a pharmacist in the office yesterday and we discussed what is wrong with health care and what is wrong with the Obama “Sick Care” plan. Some will agree with these ideas and some will not care, but most will agree that the whole system is sick and most likely will not be improved until the whole system breaks the government economically. After the collapse, and possibly violence, we may get a new system that will actually help the people.

We are a country of extremes. When something gets bad, the people get up in arms and the powers-that-be make adjustments. The public does not think the government would allow any corporation to harm them, so if something unhealthy happens, the public expects the government to solve the problem.

I hope I am getting your attention because there is something wrong – your health – and at this time your government doesn’t care and your doctors don’t have time to care.

The single biggest cause of poor health and disease today is sugar and high fructose corn syrup. They are causing heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, cancer, cholesterol, triglycerides and degenerative diseases.

When a patient goes into his or her doctor and the doctor says you are pre-diabetic or diabetic and if you follow the instructions that he or she or a dietician give you, you can lead a normal life (they do not say at this time that sugar, HFCS and diabetes alone will shorten your life by 9 to 20 years). You must come back regularly and follow a diabetic diet and take these medications. They don’t mention that, after years of the pills and continued eating of sugars and HFCS, the diabetes will probably get worse and you will need to give yourself a shot of insulin one to two times per day for the rest of your life. They also do not mention that if heart disease is not present at this time it will be shortly after the diabetes starts.

Your doctor will not be callous at this time and thank you for the money you are going to put into his or her pocket, but he or she knows that you are going to be responsible for paying over $300,000 before you die. This money will pay for office expenses, but a lot of this will go to the new BMW’s every couple of years, the doctor’s kids’ new cars and, of course, the doctor’s $750,000.00 house will be in the best of neighborhoods.

 Doctors are not stupid or they would never have made it through medical school, internship or residency. I also venture to say that most doctors really do care, but the problem is time and money.

When you show up with pre-diabetes, doctors know that, at this juncture, it is possible to change your life and prevent becoming a diabetic.  Unfortunately, they also know most people don’t give a hoot and will not change their life style. With this in mind, the doctors are not going to waste their time telling you to stop eating sugar and HFCS (I know this is over simplified but it is still true).

The most important issue is that even if the doctor cares and tries to advise the patient to do the right thing, the doctor is not getting paid to give you good advice. They can’t pay the bills advising people to do the right thing (this applies to heart disease, cancer and every other disease) and so the easy way out is to give you the diet, the prescription and tell you to return in a few weeks to check your blood sugar level and adjust your medications. In the case of heart disease and cancer, they get you into surgery and post-op treatment.

Hopefully, you are asking how we can fix this problem, but the problem is that no one wants to fix it because everyone is making massive amounts of money and as long as the cash cow – our government – is willing to pay, the system will never change.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the day of reckoning is coming soon.

The amount of people with diabetes, the new diabetics from the baby boomers and now the children with diabetes is going to break the government “bank”. There is no way the government can continue to tax the people for diseases that are preventable, empire building in other nations with our military and giving foreign aid to countries that is spent on the lavish lifestyles of their leaders. There is a point coming soon that the people will rebel and refuse to pay more taxes.

Health care has got to change to real prevention and not lip service to prevention. Medicine/drug corporations try to make the public believe that keeping you from dying quickly while prescribing massive amounts of expensive drugs is prevention. Unfortunately, the government (politicians who are bought off by Big Pharma) has bought this misguided health care system hook, line and sinker. (I just could not stop myself from using the fishing term.)

What can we do to change the coming disaster? Make no mistake – the system will fall apart before it gets better.

You have to decide if you want to help yourself before the collapse or wait for the government to try and fix the problem; however, you may be dead before there is substantial change.

  • Demand that agriculture change from chemicals to sustaining practices. We know that there is too much money being made by corporations to change, so you have to take responsibility for yourself and your family.
  • Doctors must be paid for preventing disease and penalized monetarily for “sick-care medicine”.
  • We have to stop “food” manufacturers from deceiving the people with toxic ingredients like HFCS, sugar, MSG, Equal and hydrolyzed vegetable proteins. If you want to avoid early death, you will have to take care of yourself and your family as food changes will not happen until after the collapse of “sick care.”

Your future and longevity at this time depends on you and how willing you are to help yourself and your family. I would like to think that there will be no disaster or collapse, but we are on a collision course and I don’t believe anything will stop it. Diabetes will trigger the change.

I don’t believe doctors are killing us on purpose or that they are altogether uncaring, but the system is rigged against them and us, the people. Ralph Nader and Sydney Wolfe, MD group estimate that doctors, nurses, hospitals and drug corporations kill 400,000 people a year and disable another 400,000 people each year.

Should we tolerate this or just write off the fact that millions of people are dying before their time. Are you going to be one of these early deaths that also run out of money before the end and have to live in poverty?
