The Shocking Truth about Aspartame

You are not going to believe this…  Hold on tight – this news may come as quite a shock:  Drinking diet soda pop and chewing sugar free gum puts the weight ON!  But there is more, and it’s not good news!  Hair loss, impotence, eczema, MS, blindness – just a few of the symptoms aspartame causes.  Here is an excerpt from a speech by Nancy Markle on aspartame that explains:

“When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME coverts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. (Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants). The methanol toxicity mimics multiple sclerosis; thus people were being diagnosed with having multiple sclerosis in error. The multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, where methanol toxicity is.

* In the case of systemic lupus, we are finding it has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially among Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. Also, with methanol toxicity, victims usually drink three to four 12 oz. cans of them per day, some even more. In the cases of systemic lupus, which is triggered by ASPARTAME, the victim usually does not know that the ASPARTAME is the culprit. The victim continues its use, aggravating the lupus to such a degree that sometimes it becomes life-threatening. When we get people off the ASPARTAME, those with systemic lupus usually become asymptomatic. Unfortunately, we cannot reverse this disease.

* On the other hand, in the case of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, (when in reality, the disease is methanol toxicity), most of the symptoms disappear. We have seen cases where their vision has returned and even their hearing has returned. This also applies to cases of tinnitus.

* During a lecture, I said, “If you are using ASPARTAME (NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss – you probably have ASPARTAME DISEASE!

Top 5 things that can keep you from feeling happy

Here is a reminder of a few things you can avoid because they keep your body from producing the serotonin you need to feel happy:

  • Alcohol consumption
  • smoking cigarettes
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Anti-depressants & other prescription drugs
  • Release of insulin from      too much sugar

Of course, there are things you can do to increase your body’s ability to feel happiness:

  • Exercise 30 minutes a day 5 or more days a week.
  • Spend time in the sunshine.
  • Opt for veggies or slower burning carbs instead of sugar laden snacks.
  • Boost your immune system.  Most of your serotonin is built in your “gut”.  Check with me for the supplements you need to do that.
  • Get proper amounts of sleep.
  • Decrease stress – which may include decreasing stress producing foods, like caffeine, sugar, high fructose corn syrup

The top 10 things you can do to avoid the flu

One credible hypothesis that explains the seasonal nature of flu is that influenza is a vitamin D deficiency disease.  Vitamin D levels in your blood fall to their lowest point during the flu seasons.  Unable to be protected by the body’s own antibiotics (antimicrobial peptides) that are released by vitamin D, a person with low vitamin D blood level is more vulnerable to contracting colds, influenza, and other respiratory infections.  The more optimal the vitamin D level, the lower your risk of contracting colds, flu, and other respiratory tract infections.

#1 – Supplement with vitamin D-3

It makes sense -  since we’re not in the sun very much.  But it must be Vitamin D-3, not a synthetic D-2.  I would suggest a blood test to determine your current D-3 levels.  Meanwhile, talk to me about how much you can supplement with, and which product to use.

#2 – Exercise

Every time we are strenuously active we give ourselves a “fever.”  It is this temporary but significant elevation in core body temperature that destroys significant numbers of bacteria and viruses.  Immunity:  Use it or lose it!

#3 – Hot baths

Sitting immersed in a hot tub for 20 – 30 minutes can help raise your core temperature, effectively making viruses and bacteria uncomfortable and weak so your body can win the battle.

#4 – Eat the right foods

You know what I mean… avoid the sugar and snacks.  Viruses love them.

#5 – Strengthen your liver

The liver is the organ that removes toxins from your body.  You need to strengthen it so it can do its job properly thereby strengthening your immune system.  Check with me for proper supplementation.
#6 – Get adjusted

Studies show that getting a chiropractic adjustment stimulates the immune system.

#7 – Get adequate rest

Rest is always important to your immune system.

#8 – Drink adequate water

Cells can’t eliminate toxins if they are not properly hydrated.

#9 – Wash your hands frequently, and don’t share hand towels.

#10 -  Take probiotics everyday

Research shows that probiotics (like acidophilus, bifidus, mulitdophilus) stimulate and enhance the immune system of the body.

Four critical elements our bodies need!

Let’s talk about the liver.  I keep noticing that many of my patients are having symptoms of a struggling liver, so I thought I would help you understand how the liver works.

Outside toxins and chemicals from drugs and sugars must go through the liver to be converted into something the body can safely use.  The liver uses glutathione to convert all those bad things.

The four critical elements our bodies need in order for you and me to survive;

  1. Air
  2. Water
  3. Food
  4. Glutathione

When we “run out” of this important element, our liver starts to wrap all those bad chemicals in fat and store them …  where ever it can!  That’s bad!

Glutathione has hundreds of functions in the body. But for most people, if we are able to remember the 5 main benefits, we will be familiar with about 90% of what glutathione does:

I will give you AN IDEA here:

  1. It is your Body’s own Master Antioxidant
  2. It is an Immune System Booster and Balancer
  3. It enhances Detoxification of toxins, pollutants, chemicals, etc.
  4. It regenerates mitochondria at the cellular level, giving you Energy
  5. It has an Anti-Aging Effect on your cells.

Research is being done at an ever increasing rate today. As a result, it is now understood that a healthy eyeball has high levels of glutathione, and an eyeball with cataracts is lacking in it.

Let me help you increase your glutathione levels.  Come in for an adjustment and let me teach you what things you need to do for your liver!!

Startling Facts about NSAID’s

With chronic, long term NSAID use the incidence of liver and kidney conditions increases, gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers are well known adverse reactions, and research reveals that NSAIDs may actually decrease the body’s ability to produce the natural smooth cartilage inside our joints! So the very problem the drugs are made to treat, in this case joint pain and inflammation, might actually be part of the cause of the condition!

With this in mind, what are some other things we can try instead of reaching for the bottle of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories?

Eat a “non-inflammatory” diet. There are foods that contribute to inflammation, and others that suppress inflammation. When you are cooking or baking at home, try substituting all oils with olive oil. The other oils are omega 6 oils, which contribute to inflammation, whereas olive oil is an omega 9, which does not contribute to inflammation. Also, supplement your diet with fish oil (omega 3), which reduces inflammation. Krill oil is even better than regular fish oil.
Eliminate sugars, especially high fructose corn syrup from your diet. Research has shown that these products increase inflammation in the body, contributing to joint pain.
Research reveals that supplementing your diet with glucosamine sulfate can actually help repair cartilage tissues in the joints thereby reducing pain. Other supplements, like Protectin, (scutellaria baicelenesis extract and acacia catechu extract) have been found to reduce joint pain and inflammation. (I have these in my office… just in case you were wondering where you would find a good source.)
Warm up before you exercise! Stretch patiently every day! These activities allow your muscles and tendons to become more flexible, therefore causing less stress on your joints during activity.
Drink water! Don’t wait for thirst to remind you – drink all day!

Vitamin D3 & RSV

Pregnant women who take vitamin D can prevent a respiratory illness in newborns called RSV according to a new study published in the American Academy of Pediatrics, May, 2011.
The study suggests that out of the five-million RSV cases every year in the United States, a million fewer kids would get the respiratory virus if more pregnant moms took vitamin D supplements.
“Right now in this study they quote it as 400 international units — so the same as for a newborn child. Although, there have been studies that have shown up to 4,000 international units,” Blackburn said.
The study found that infants who were born with Vitamin D3 levels higher than 75 were 6 times less likely to get RSV in the first year of life.
“Vitamin D deficiency in healthy neonates is associated with increased risk of RSV LRTI in the first year of life,” the study authors write. “Intensified routine vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy may be a useful strategy to prevent RSV LRTI during infancy.”

I have vitamin D3 here in my office that is a good quality. I can help you figure out how much to take.

Aesthetic Natural Medicine, the new rage with Utah Valley chiropractic patients

Utah Valley chiropractic patients now have the option to use natural medicine injections to enhance their natural beauty.   Dr. Stone offers Bio-Mesotherapy injections in his office that can make a difference in the way you look and feel.

There was a time when your skin radiated youthful vitality, health, and beauty.  This was before aging, loss of collagen, wrinkles, sun damage, stress, and toxins took their toll.   Bio-Mesotherapy injestions can help you restore that beauty.  What about unwanted fat and cellulite deposits?  Bio-Mesotherapy injections may help you regain the smooth, firm belly, thighs, arms, chin, breast, and neck of your youthful body.

The technique of Bio-Mesotherapy uses minimally invasive injections of biotherapeutic medicines under the skin surface.

Bio-Mesotherapy has a variety of applications.  The most popular uses include:

  • Facial biorevitalization
  • Reduction in appearance of lines, wrinkles, cellulite and body fat
  • Support in toning arms, thighs, chin, breasts, and belly

This method in aesthetics begins working at the cellular level to give you a vibrant, toned, and rejuvenated face and body.  It rejuvenates your natural collagen-producing mechanisms, taking years off your face and skin; they may also stimulate your own natural fat-burning mechanisms, helping your body convert fat into energy.

Newest pain management for Utah County

The latest pain management for Utah County chiropractic patients is here at Dr. Stone’s office.  Pain is a sign that something is wrong within the body.  Instead of simply masking the physical pain, Dr. Stone uses methods to treat pain at the source.  Pain management medicines are very effective because they address all of the body’s systems and all sources of your pain.  By injecting very small amounts of medicine just under the skin, the body’s regulatory systems respond by releasing it’s own anti-inflammatory and pain relieving substances to give you immediate relief.  At the same time, your body’s natural healing processes are stimulated to address the cause of your pain and provide long term relief.

The process by which the medicines are delivered offer immediate relief of acute pain, and the medicine itself treats chronic pain at the source.

  • post-traumatic swelling
  • Neck, back, and general joint pain

Homeopathic Injectables

Homeopathic injections are available at Stone Chiropractic in Pleasant Grove, UT.  Here is an introduction to homeopathic injectables to help you decide if this avenue of healing  is one you should try.

By Dr. Wilfried Stock

Homeopathic injectables must be manufactured in accordance with the rules of the official
European pharmacopoeia if they claim to be homeopathic. They are used therapeutically in
various “special” forms of treatment such as anthroposophic medicine, antihomotoxic medicine,
combination homeopathy and classic homeopathy.
More than 120 million ampoules of homeopathic or anthroposophic medicinal products are now
manufactured and distributed in the EU every year. Over 90% of these products are produced by
German homeopathic and anthroposophic manufacturers.
The parenteral dosage form was first described in the specialist homeopathic literature in the 19th
century [1]. Since then, homeopathic therapists have studied and made practical use of what was
at that time, a method of administration completely new to homeopathy [2].
Bergmann [l.c., 2] expressly states that it is advantageous for the homeopathic remedy if it does
not have to pass through the gastrointestinal tract where it is severely altered by the gastric and
intestinal juices. In this author’s view, potentized homeopathic remedies work best when applied
unchanged to the mucosa or – even better – injected under the skin or into the bloodstream.
However, the same author mentions that not all cases of disease can be treated using parenteral
administration, and that it is up to the doctor to make the appropriate choice. He also recommends
using the “injection method” only when the symptoms of the disease leave no doubt as to the
choice of the right “similar” and treatment via the internal (oral) route has failed to have any effect.
The new method of administration does not in any way alter the homeopathic character of the
remedy in question, the author continues. It also does not alter the validity of the Law of Similars,
as is impressively demonstrated by specimen cases.
In the same study the author also describes “injections” of high potencies (D 30 and D 300).
The mother tincture was prepared by succussion with water instead of alcohol [l.c. 2, p. 67].
The number of injections given depended on the course of the healing process.

As already indicated above, subcutaneous and intravenous administrations were the first
parenteral forms of administrations used in homeopathy. They have been joined in the past
50 years by others such as intramuscular, intracutaneous, intraarticular and
periarticular forms of administration.  These were among other things a result of the

introduction of new treatment techniques such as homeosiniatry [3], neural therapy and

biopuncture by J. Kersschot [4]. All these invasive techniques exploit the advantage gained by administering the homeopathicremedy locally, directly to acupuncture points or trigger points.
These treatment techniques are used mainly to treat injuries, various types of headache,
muscular pain and tendon pain, and acute and chronic inflammatory processes [4].
The main reason for injecting homeopathic solutions into trigger points or into particular
acupuncture points is that injecting the homeopathic remedy at that point markedly
intensifies the healing effect. In the case of administration at an acupuncture point,
the penetration of the injection cannula produces a stimulus similar to that of an
acupuncture needle.
