Thymus therapy

Thymus Therapy

The German Society for Thymus Therapy has reported last week that many of the effects of aging are the result of de­creased immune function. Thymus extracts have been shown to be a powerful clinical tool and extremely versatile in treat­ing a wide variety of illnesses associated with aging and clini­cal conditions ranging from mild to life threatening. The fa­vorable clinical response combined with the lack of side ef­fects or toxicity makes the use of thymus extracts an impor­tant treatment option that has yet to be recognized on this continent.

Vitamin D vs Allergies

Vitamin D and correlation to allergies
Researchers from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University looked at the serum vitamin D levels in blood collected in 2005-2006 from a nationally representative sample of more than 3,100 children and adolescents and 3,400 adults.

Low vitamin D levels correlated with sensitivity to 11 of the 17 allergens tested.

A study shows that low vitamin D levels are associated with increased likelihood that children will develop allergies. 25/02/2011

Chilling of chicken meat

Chilling of chicken meat
Companies chill their chicken prior to shipping and print on their labels the chilling method. There are two methods in chilling:
1- water chilling,
2- air chilling,
the second method is far better to the value of your dollar. The first method (water chilling) causes the chicken drum to shrivel to approximately 2/3 of the precooking size due to water loss from meat, while the second method ( air chilling) does affect the size of precooking meat.

Thanks to Judy Abernethy for her educating moment.

Chicken Protein or is it ..?

What did they inject chicken protein with..?
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) in the UK  had investigated companies involved in marketing chicken meat for mislabeling their packages. During an interview with Mark woolfe, head of food authenticity, he indicated that an investigation has been launched a while ago for the Food Standards Agency. The agency is aware that water injection in chicken meat is a standard process.
In order to keep their chicken fresh looking, chicken companies such as Euro Foods Group, uses water to inject in chicken meat. These companies realized that water leaks from the meat after injection which defeats the purpose of the water injection. In order to come over the water leak problem, the companies started to mix protein with water in order to retain the water inside the meat. The problem revolves around the type of protein used to inject the meat. Companies producing the protein for injection are not properly labeling their products. The FSA has discovered that the protein used for injection is not a chicken protein, as they claim. Scientific testing indicated that the injected protein originated from pork and beef. In addition to mislabeling the process contradict religious believes to Muslim and Jews. Other research indicated that some companies have used whey protein to inject chicken. This procedure is very harmful to people who have allergies to whey protein.
Part of the interview is enclosed in the following link.

Cholesterol deposits on eyelids..?

Cholesterol deposits on eyelids and heart disease

In its cardiology section, t
he Toronto Medical Post reported on its December 14th 2010, page 55 that a recent research indicated that patients who have cholesterol deposits on

eyelids are at significant risk of heart attacks, ischemic heart disease and possible death. It reported that a research indicated that these xanthelasmata are deposits that, like athero
mas, are composed of macrophages that have taken up cholesterol and became foam cells. A Danish researcher indicated that, the above study lasted 33 years which revealed that when these yellowish lesions are observed then the risk of heart attack is increased 51%, the risk of developing ischemic heart disease is increased 40% and the risk of death is increased 17% when compared with individuals who do not exhibit xanthelasmatas. Dr. Mette Christoffersen PhD of University of Copenhagen Hospital said the prevalence of xanthelasmatas is 4.4%.

For the past 10 years, I have been treating this condition with Lecithin granules, EFA and elimination of processed fat and elimination of fried food.

Cholesterol vs Gallbladder

Cholesterol and gallbladder.
Patients with increased cholesterol in the blood, normally have an issue with their clogged gallbladders'. The opposite is also correct, you would expect that patients with clogged gallbladder have increased cholesterol in the blood.
Patients who have lost their gallbladder to surgery, would face two problems:
1- gradual increase in weight (central obesity),
2- increased serum cholesterol,
Serum cholesterol will not correct unless the gallbladder is unclogged and fried food is removed from diet.
