I'm Barbara Nicholson, a little over a year ago, my husband dropped dead of cardiac myopathy. And it just nearly killed me. A good friend of mine, Dr. Henry Curtiss, from Denver, Colorado, called me. He said, "I just want you to listen to this tape." I didn't do it. But when I eventually did, I heard Dr. Joe Wallach say that cardiac myopathy is 100% preventable. This really hit me very hard, therefore I want to tell you the reason that I am here is that I don't want to see anyone else go through what I went through... that I've been through this last year. Dr. Wallach is going to explain to you tonight not only about cardiac myopathy, but many other things. I pray that you listen closely and carefully, because what you are going to hear may save your life or the life of your loved one. Dr. Wallach, in 1991, was nominated for the Nobel Prize. He's had many many fabulous things in his life. There's no way to tell you how pleased I am to have him here in Kansas City tonight. And I want to turn the time over now to Dr. Wallach.
Well, I would like to add my welcome to Barbara's. I'm certainly glad you are here. How many of you grew up on a farm, or still work on a farm, or have anything to do with livestock? I'll tell you what, you are my kind of people, because I grew up on a farm in W. St. Louis County, back in the '50's. We started out with beef cows, and if you raise livestock, the only way to make money is if you raise your own feed (for those of you who don't have that experience). And so we raised our own corn, and our own soy beans, and our own hay, and we had a truck come out from the mill. This truck would come out from the mill, they would grind up the corn, and the soy beans, and the hay, and then we would add sacks of vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, and we would make pellets out of it, and this is what we would feed to the calves.
Summer is here! A change of season calls for a change in routine, a revamped diet, and of course, a new exercise regimen that suits the weather. The onset of warm weather can make your body more vulnerable to different types of diseases and certain health guidelines must be followed to ensure a healthy summer. Here are a few tips to stay healthy this summer:
Eat healthy and light
Eat light, small, frequent meals. Heavy meals with large amounts of carbohydrates and fats give rise to a lot of heat in the body. Focus on fresh fruits and vegetables that have high water content – such as oranges, watermelon, tomatoes, etc.
Treat your eyes well
Protect your vision from the harsh sunlight at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet rays.
Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine
Alcohol, fizzy drinks and coffee all can leave you dehydrated quickly. If at all possible, try to reduce the amount of these favourite beverages, especially during hot weather. Plain or flavoured water is a good substitute.
Drink plenty of water
Heat and sweat in the summer months can leave your body dehydrated, causing unwanted health outcomes such as fever and chills. Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking at least 2 to 3 litres of water every day.
Restrict outdoor activities to the cooler parts of the day – early mornings before 11. am or late evenings after 5.00 pm.
Avoid outside food
Roadside food can be contaminated and may lead to foodborne illnesses. Also in the summer heat if food is not stored properly it may get spoilt and lead to a stomach infection.
Summer Travels Are you and your family travelling in summer? If you plan to travel within India than you must take a few precautions to keep you safe from the summer heat.
Here are a few tips:
Wear light colours and natural fabrics like cotton and linen. When you are outside, use proper covering for your mouth, nose and ears to shield yourself from the hot winds, which can cause dehydration. Use a hat or an umbrella for shade and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes.
Apply a good waterproof sunscreen to all exposed parts of your body and reapply it every three to four hours to ensure that your skin remains protected.
Adopt an appropriate skin care routine
Summer can wreak havoc on your skin if proper care is not taken. Excessive oil and sweat can cause troublesome irritation, rashes, prickly heat, and exacerbation of acne. Wash your face often or use tissues to wipe a sweaty face to avoid acne. Use natural face packs with aloe vera gel or sandalwood powder to soothe the skin.
A group of specialists from Healthy nutrition products Scientific research institute, following the traditional Chinese theory about nutrition and life cherishing, have developed an excellent high quality product “Gaoqian”. This product combines restoring and cleaning function. It is a natural health care and supplementary nutrition product. “Gaoqian” is also recommended to people suffering from hyperlipemia, hypertonia, hyperglycemia, overweight people.
Functions and Effects • Effects of lowering blood sugar • Effects of lowering blood-lipid • Effects of resisting hunger and losing weight • Effects of moisturizing the intestine, relaxing the bowels and eliminating the toxins
Our food ingredients are not balanced. Cellular hunger is more and more observable, which is usually followed by obesity; a person usually gets a lot of calories, but lacks nutritious elements. Weed, especially micro weed, is very important for our health, because it provides our organism with valuable and vital elements. Besides, it is a low-calorie product. It is the product that eliminates the most serious health problems of our times. As after entering the organism fiber cell tissue starts sucking moisture, expanding and swelling, it enlarges the volume of the intestine. This process helps to soften the excrement mass and ensures more favorable conditions for it to excrete more easily and quickly. At the same time these processes stimulate the intestine peristalsis, reduce stasis and the possibility to assimilate toxins in the intestine. Also Chitosan's ability to attach toxins and heavy metals is added, which provides a possibility to excrete toxins and heavy metals, and moisten the intestine. It strengthens the treatment effect in the cases of constipation and hemorrhoids. Recently, as the general living standard has improved, food is becoming more refined. There is a trend to use less nutritious fiber in our meals. High-calorie food, containing lots of protein, fat and carbohydrate, promotes obesity, diabetes, heart-diseases, hypertonia, and other diseases in large numbers. These facts have attracted scientists' attention and there appeared nutritious tablets "Gaoqian" in the nutrition practice. When providing a person's organism with sufficient nutrition, this product also helps to excrete lots of harmful substances, toxins and fat surplus. "Regeneration" and "Cleaning" - two functions in one product! Ingredients: 1) Konjak 2) High-density Chitosan 3) High-fiber tissue 4) Spirulina 5) Isolated protein
Ingredients: Rose blossom extract, oligosaccharides, stachiosis, etc. No sugar.

The most typical representative of the useful human micro flora is bifid bacteria, which carry out role of micro biological regulation: stimulate the absorption of food in the intestine, strengthen the immunity, have a preventive effect, slow down the growth of pathogenic micro flora and decay bacteria in the intestine, etc.
Many studies have shown that the using live good micro flora, there are no conditions for it to establish the colonies on the walls of the digestive tract, but allows them to survive there for a short time. Therefore, it has been a special food for bifid bacteria – bifid factor invented. This is the kind of food that human body does not separate or digest. Therefore after use it goes directly into the gastrointestinal tract. It specifically promotes the growth and activity of bifid bacteria and reduces the amount pathogenic micro flora in the gut.
Main components of Fruit Pasta “Meigui”
Stachiosis – belong to hardly digestive sugars. Taken with meal, it goes directly into the gastrointestinal tract and feeds bifid bacteria and other useful micro flora.
Oligoksilosis – activates beneficial intestinal micro flora, improves intestine habits, and makes it possible to maintain a soft stool consistency.
Oligosaccharides – activates the beneficial intestinal micro flora; protects function of the liver, reduces cholesterol levels in the blood; prevents colon cancer; boosts vitamins production in the body.
Main effect of the product Active use of fruit paste “Meigui” in case of dysbacteriosis (dysbiosis), there will be increase in the amount of intestinal micro flora, human digestive tract will be stabilized and strengthened, digestible juice secretion adjusted, digestion promoted, diarrhea relieved.
It also increases immunity, reduces body aging, have a cosmetic effect. Acting in accordance with the principal “outside affects the inside”, it can dissolve the pigment spots by stimulating melanin degradation and metabolism, allow people to have healthy supple and white skin. It is used for depletion and slag removal from the body, and for weight reduction as well. In addition, pasta eliminates the unpleasant odor of sweat and breath.

This time of year in the western hemisphere is magical. You can feel nature coming alive, waking up from its long winter slumber. But as spring blossoms around us—as beautiful as it is—many of us also have seasonal allergies to worry about this time of year. The FDA estimates that there are approximately 36 million people in the United States who suffer from seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are also sometimes called hay fever, or, by their technical (and very fancy) name, allergic rhinitis. It's important to know that allergic rhinitis technically takes two different forms: Seasonal: This type of allergy is triggered by mold spores or pollens from grass, trees, and weeds, which happen more during changes of season. Perennial: This type of allergy happens year round. It's generally caused by pet hair or dander, mold, dust mites, or cockroaches (gross, right?).
Seasonal allergy symptoms.
Seasonal allergies can present in the form of a bunch of different symptoms—and many of them overlap with the common cold. Some common signs and symptoms to look out for include:
Stuffy nose due to blockage or congestion
Itchy eyes, mouth, nose, or throat
My role as a functional medicine practitioner is to get to the root cause of health problems. And what I find commonly among my patients is that seasonal allergies are more than just a change in the weather or a little extra pollen. Ultimately, allergies happen as a result of the immune system overreacting to an external factor, whether it is a food you eat, a toxin you are exposed to, or in this case, a change in the environment and increase in pollen in the air. Some people experience seasonal allergies more dramatically than others. This is because when your immune system is compromised, it's going to produce antibodies to defend itself from even the smallest triggers or invaders to your system. In the case of seasonal allergies, this will result in more severe symptoms like watery eyes, runny nose, itchiness, and more.
The root cause of seasonal allergies.
In order to really work toward overcoming seasonal allergies, we need to dive deeper into how the immune system works. Close to 80 percent of your immune system is located in your gut microbiome, and therefore, when your microbiome is weakened, so is your immune system. Many things can alter your gut health, including a poor diet, stress, and increased toxin exposure. This results in increased gut permeability—also known as leaky gut—inflammation, and an imbalance between good and bad bacteria. Once again, it all comes back to gut health. In fact, in my clinic I have seen many patients' seasonal allergies start to alleviate as soon as they start healing their gut. The take-home here? Bad or worsening seasonal allergies might be why a patient comes to see me in the first place, but they rarely end up being the main issue once I start looking under the surface. So now that we understand the root cause of seasonal allergies, we can narrow down tools to support both our gut and our immune system. In functional medicine, prevention is our main goal. We want to be proactive rather than reactive. So while certain over-the-counter allergy medications, prescription medications, and allergy shots can be helpful in some cases, we also want to focus on ways to fight allergies at the source—and hopefully eliminate the need to medicate (or stay indoors!) at all. These are my top remedies for both preventing and combating seasonal allergies so you can enjoy this season rather than dread it. There's no reason to stay indoors!
Seasonal allergy treatments.
If you're looking to tackle your seasonal allergies from a holistic perspective, you'll be happy to know that there are a ton of natural remedies that can help you combat seasonal allergy symptoms and their root cause—inflammation. Here are some of the treatments I recommend to the patients at my clinic:
1. Adaptogens These natural plant medicines are my go-to for almost everything since there's pretty much guaranteed to be an adaptogen out there to help with whatever health issue you are struggling with. Red ginseng has been shown in many studies to be a powerful anti-allergenic. One study in particular showed that red ginseng was able to alleviate symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, itching, and allergy-induced nasal inflammation.
2. Support your biofilms. Biofilms are thin, slimy films of bacteria that stick to mucus membranes throughout our bodies, including our gut and sinuses. These are actually important pieces of our health puzzle but can contribute to uncomfortable seasonal allergy symptoms such as a runny nose or other sinus problems when their composition is made up of pathogenic bacteria rather than beneficial bacteria. Some natural biofilm-modifying tools are:
Colostrum supplements: Lactoferrin, the protein in colostrum, inhibits pathogens to promote healthy biofilms.
Digestive enzymes: These help to break down biofilms.
Probiotics and prebiotics: These promote healthy bacterial balance.
EDTA: A natural chelating agent used to bring out toxins from biofilms.
3. Support your gut. If allergies all have roots in gut health, boosting your microbiome health is essential. This can be done through adding natural gut supporters into your wellness routine. The average adult gut can take anywhere between 12 to 24 months to fully heal. So while you may experience some relief within a couple of weeks to a few months, this will help you alleviate symptoms for the long term.
Up your intake of probiotic-rich fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir, or coconut yogurt.
Include bone broth in your diet. This gut-healing superfood is rich in nutrients like collagen, which work to soothe an inflamed gut.
Add a probiotic supplement. While food is primary, sometimes you need an extra boost when you are working to restore a compromised gut.
4. Try an elimination diet. Food plays one of the biggest roles in your gut health. Everyone knows that an overload of sugar, gluten, or other processed junk foods can seriously affect your microbiome. But I've seen even the healthiest foods cause inflammation and problems in people. An elimination diet is a great way to discover what foods your body loves and what foods your body hates in order to come up with a real-food plan that works for you personally to promote sustainable healing. One of the biggest things you can do to support your gut is to actually avoid antibiotics, prescriptions, and other OTC medications as these can further compromise your gut. Since antibiotics, for example, work to kill off bacteria, they can't differentiate between good and bad bacteria and can end up eradicating both. Again, while sometimes these can be necessary, such as in the case of an unavoidable sudden exposure in life-threatening allergies, you have to ask yourself, Am I just looking for short-term relief or long-term healing?
