Disease and POPs

Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are responsible for a wide range of metabolic diseases that clinicians in Establishment Medicine know nothing about. Even if they understood the problems POPs cause, they have no methods by which they could eliminate the threat.

I want to concentrate on some of the big diseases:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Cancer including Breast Cancer

The chemicals contributing to obesity are known as obesogens. Here’s something I just dug up at http://xfinity.net/blogs/lifestyle/2013/10/14/animals-are-having-an-obesity-crisis/too/

Americans aren’t the only ones getting fatter—our animals are also growing overweight, reports it isn’t just pets and lab animals piling on the pounds (though they are; the likelihood of chimps living with or near humans being obese increased tenfold between 1985 and 2005): one study found feral rats in Baltimore are also getting plumper. This is more than just an interesting piece of trivia, Pro Publica reports:

The following idea will shock people who believe we found the solution to the obesity epidemic. It raises the question of whether the usual culprits of “too much food” and “not enough exercise” are really the only things causing the obesity crisis.

And the evidence is overwhelming that it is more, much more.

Breast Cancer

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are a class of synthetic, lipophilic, bioaccumulative compounds, many of which were first introduced during the post WWII industrial boom. Most notable among these older POPs are dichlorodiphenyl trichloroethane (DDT) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which were banned in the 1970s in the U.S. due to concerns over widespread human exposures and potential adverse health effects in wildlife and humans.

Because of their persistent and bioaccumulative nature, however, exposure to these compounds continues decades later with detectable levels prevalent in human tissue today. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) are a newer class of POPs, introduced into the marketplace in the late 1970s as flame retardant additives to consumer and building products.   Owing to their similar molecular structure and toxicological properties to PCBs, in combination with the ubiquity of exposure, it appears PBDEs are poised to become the PCBs of the 21st century. In response to recent regulatory action that banned the use of two of the three primary commercial PBDE formulations in the U.S., replacement brominated flame retardants (BFRs) have recently emerged and are in widespread use. 

Interest in the role of POPs in breast cancer etiology stems largely from the well-documented endocrine disrupting properties of these compounds.

 

 

 

The coming of the health coach revolution

In New York, suddenly, holistic health coaches are everywhere. And their unique approach to jump-starting the health of their clients—and the general population—is changing the ways people approach getting, and staying, healthy.

Health coaches are generally educated at the (IIN) in New York, which was founded 20 years ago by Joshua Rosenthal. Often, personal health issues and revelations draw them to IIN. They used to be sick, tired, and unhappy and want to help others kickstart their own transformations. And they’re not buying traditional approaches to nutrition.

While health coaches are primarily trained to counsel clients one-on-one, the diverse curriculum leads to a variety of approaches and business models. Some mix spirituality into sessions with clients. One student wants to add coaching to her acupuncture practice.

The emphasis in coaching is to focus on nutrition. One institute teaches more that 100 different dietary approaches. Everything today is about diet and exercise.

The health coach fills this new role that makes up for the doctor who just gives you Valium without having a conversation with you, the nutritionist who calorie counts, and the therapist who wants to dig into childhood and never talk about next steps. That stuff is so antiquated. We’re moving into a place where we’re taking responsibility for our health and happiness.

Various homeopathic remedies

One reason for the rapid growth is people’s disdain for modern drug-based medicine. Medicine cures nothing. This was known well over 100 years ago and it was said that if all the drugs were thrown into the sea that it would be that much better for man and all the worse for the fish.

The Biomedacademy offers a unique opportunity for health coaches to expand their offerings. We teach people about energy medicine. We don’t promote all aspects of energy medicine and focus primarily on the use of energetic remedies such as homeopathic remedies manufactured by our sponsoring companies.

We teach health coaches in our one-of-a-kind online program and then bolster their learning and skill set through webinars conducted by Drs. Marrongelle and Ellis. Members of the Academy will have unlimited access to our combined 60 years of practice.

The program is unique and goes way beyond the limited focus on nutrition. We now know that Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are damaging our health and we offer solutions to this problem.

The Incidence of Obesity and Diabetes has Dramatically Increased Worldwide

From 1980 to 2008, the global prevalence of obesity has doubled in both men and women whereas the number of people with diabetes increased from 153 million in 1980 to 347 million in 2008. A recent report realized in the European Union (EU) highlights that overweight and obesity affect more than 50% of the adult population whereas diabetes is now affecting over 30 million people. In the United States (US), the prevalence of obesity among children and adolescents has almost tripled since 1980, and 12% of children aged 2 through 5 years were obese in 2009-2010. In addition to enhancing the risk of premature death, diabetes and obesity are major causes of multiple complications, including hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, blindness, limb amputation, and sleep apnea, that generate enormous economic costs for both health care and loss of productivity to society. Total annual economic cost of diabetes in the US reached $132 billion in 2002, representing around 11% of the US health care expenditure, and increased to $174 billion in 2007. In Europe, obesity-related healthcare was estimated to reach up to 10.4 billion Euros.

Although they are the focus of intense investigations, the origins of metabolic diseases have remained poorly understood.

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including dioxins, furans, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and organochlorine pesticides, are chemicals mainly created by industrial activities, either intentionally or as by-products. Because of their ability to resist environmental degradation, these substances are omnipresent in food products, and found all around the world, even in areas where they have never been used like Antarctica . Thus, virtually all humans are daily exposed to POPs. In the general population, exposure to POPs comes primarily from the consumption of animal fat like fatty fish, meat and milk products; the highest POP concentrations being commonly found in fatty fish.

Environmental toxins; POPs

The most important cause of type 2 diabetes and the metabolic syndrome is environmental. Something bad was introduced during industrialization and is increasing in the environment. We know that it is noninfectious; the usual suspects are “POPs.” POPs are defined as “chemical substances that persist in the environment, bio-accumulate through the food web, and pose a risk of causing adverse effects to human health and the environment” by the Stockholm Convention. It identified 12 POPs initially and subsequently added 9 more.

Scientific Evidence for the Homeopathic Treatment of Environmental Poisons

There is a significant body of research to show the benefits of homeopathic medicines in treating environmental exposures of toxic substances.

Back in 1994, a highly respected group of researchers reviewed 105 animal studies that evaluated the ability of homeopathic medicines to discharge heavy metals from the bodies of mice. This review found that the best results were in the studies that were deemed to be scientifically rigorous. When evaluating only these higher quality studies, the researchers found a significant reduced death rate from exposure to toxic minerals (arsenic, mercury, cadmium, bismuth) when homeopathic doses of these substances were given to the animals (as compared with those given a placebo).

Since 1994, more than a dozen new studies have confirmed these results. A group of university researchers in India have conducted a body of laboratory trials testing the effects of heavy metals on mice which were given homeopathic doses of these toxic substances after exposure.

At present, arsenic in groundwater has affected millions of people globally distributed over 20 countries. In parts of West Bengal (India) and Bangladesh alone, over 100 million people are at risk, and supply of arsenic-free water is grossly inadequate.

Attempts to remove groundwater arsenic by using orthodox medicines have mostly been unsuccessful. A potentized homeopathic remedy made from arsenic (Arsenicum album 30C) was administered in a double-blind, placebo-control study to a group of groundwater arsenic affected people, and the arsenic contents in urine and blood were periodically evaluated. The activities of various toxicity marker enzymes and compounds in the blood, namely aspartate amino transferase, alanine amino transferase, acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, lipid peroxidation and reduced glutathione, were also periodically monitored up to three months. The results are highly encouraging and suggest that the drug can alleviate arsenic poisoning in humans.

Based on this research, it is reasonable to ask if homeopathic doses of radioactive elements and other substances with apparently similar effects are useful.

Seeing the Direct Effects of Using Homeopathic Remedies to Fight Diabetes

Now that we know that POPs are a primary cause of diabetes it just makes sense to use a proven method to help the body eliminate these disease-causing toxins. This is exactly what we do in our clinical practices.
