Omega 6 Benefits, with comments by Dr. Gordon

Dr. Gordon’s comments:

This is important research documenting the benefits of Omega-6 by looking at Arterial stiffness. This form of documentation of benefits is what we used 35 years ago when I wrote the Chelation protocol still widely used around the world today.

I have always insisted that Beyond Chelation Improved could not have eliminated fatal heart attacks, as well as it has, unless there were important synergies in the over 100 active ingredients found in the nine pill packets taken ideally twice a day.

Please understand you are as old as your arteries and preventing or even just slowing arterial stiffness is real anti-aging medicine! I hope you understand that I also work to keep bones strong, i.e. calcified and arteries soft, i.e. not calcified. That has been my Anti-aging focus for over 35 years so please read up on pathological calcification and K-2 and the rest of what I have written about extensively now for years.

Measuring arterial stiffness is a useful part of anti-aging medicine and keeps patients interested in staying on a comprehensive program to stay younger. There are great affordable devices today that accomplish this. Check out International Anti-aging Systems or IAS for their great affordable instrument that boils this down to VASCULAR AGE. You can make patients arteries many years younger over time predictably with the programs I have written about both oral and or IV but this is a lifetime program!!

Australian researchers pooled results of 10 randomized and controlled adult human clinicals investigating the effects of omega-3 supplementation on arterial stiffness. Trials ranged from 6 to 105 weeks in duration, with supplementation of 640 to 3000 mg of combined omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the form of daily capsules. A total of 550 participants were included in the meta-analysis, ranging from healthy men to subjects with various cardiovascular conditions, including overweight, diabetes, and hypertension.



Folate & Nutritional Status – with Comments by Dr. Gordon

Dr. Gordon’s Comments:

5’MTHF issues are much more complex than is generally recognized, so normal test results can mean nothing. Whatever you knew until today is not enough to protect your patients and loved ones.

The attached NEJM article from July 9 adds considerable likelihood that when someone tells you that the patient’s nutritional status is just fine, they very likely may be dead wrong. The patient suffers seizures and mental disorders that fail to respond to anything because you had not read the attached, which found that the level of folic acid was fine everywhere except in the cerebral spinal fluid. Now they can explain what is going on and it amenable to proper folate treatment, as found in Beyond B-12 sublingual tablets available only from Longevity Plus.

In infantile-onset cerebral folate deficiency, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF) levels in the cerebrospinal fluid are low, but folate levels in the serum and erythrocytes are normal. We examined serum specimens from 28 children with cerebral folate deficiency, 5 of their mothers, 28 age-matched control subjects, and 41 patients with an unrelated neurologic disorder. Serum from 25 of the 28 patients and 0 of 28 control subjects contained high-affinity blocking autoantibodies against membrane-bound folate receptors that are present on the choroid plexus.

DHEA – Important Information from Dr. Gordon & Dr. Mercola

Linda’s comment:  I’m now taking DHEA and it makes a   difference in how I feel…. I will be 68 yrs old in September and feel DHEA is now a must in my daily supplement routine…

Dr. Gordon’s Comments: I find DHEA is useful and I have taken it for years, 50 mg a day. We always need to learn more about it to avoid side effects and achieve the optimal dose. One study showed cancer patients survive far longer if they receive DHEA and oral melatonin. 

This link provides useful information on DHEA, which is an extremely useful hormone that most of us will want to be taking at some point in life depending on your blood tests results. I do not feel that I need to bother to take this in a topical form, as this article recommends, but for many other hormones like testosterone and progesterone topical administration can be very useful.

Supplementing With THIS Hormone Can Lead to Tumors and Insomnia 
Posted By Dr. Mercola | March 19 2011 

Before I begin this article I want to state very clearly that hormones are not my primary specialty. I have used them clinically but I found the science quite controversial, so this is a summary as I best understand it.

If you are a clinician with considerable experience in this area I invite you to present your views to update the information on DHEA.

Vitamin C & Brain Health

Linda’s comments:  I take 4 to 5 teaspoons daily of the BIOEN’R-G’Y C  daily…..I love the stuff….

Dr. Gordon’s comments: Please save your patients eyes and brain. Let them understand this important research on vision and brain function and vitamin C! The new research indicates that vitamin C may not only benefit the eye, but have wider implications for the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS).

I have not had less than 8 grams of BIOEN’R-G’Y C a day for years and when under stress like deadlines and travel, 12-16 gm is what I take. My eye glass prescription had to be weakened as at age 76 my vision is improving! 

I take everything listed on my website and use PEMF daily including direct to my head! I also have been on continuous oral chelation with the total 9 pill package that requires twice a day for well over 15 years now. So I would prefer to not leave anything out, as everything is working very well!! If I had the time I would get IV Myer’s and short chelation IV too, as nothing can get out all the toxins like lead and oral nutrients usually cannot be well enough absorbed to keep magnesium etc in optimal shape. 

But I muddle through somehow with only my oral program but research with PEMF suggests that it provides a bioporation effect.

Vitamin C shows eyes & brain health potential: Study
By Stephen Daniells, 18-Jul-2011

One of the nutrition industry’s biggest sellers – vitamin C – may help nerve cells in the eye to function properly, says a new study that suggests the vitamin may also be important for brain function, too. 

The “surprising discovery” by researchers Oregon Health & Science University indicates that vitamin C may be needed for correct functioning of retinal cells, which in turn may have implications for the central nervous system. 

Household products & women’s health problems

Linda’s comment: LISTEN-UP PEOPLE….I have been preaching this…..I have been on the lifelong daily detox for 2 years now….look at the FREE webinars on this sight on FIGHT….what you learn will save your life!!!

Dr. Gordon’s Comments: It bears repeating that we are all toxic but now this bright naturopathic doctor includes sources that most patients have never considered as contributing to their impaired health and even to breast cancer. Once patients see there is no escape they may be more compliant with the lifetime continual detoxification program I recommend including the use at least once a day of my “Power Drink” containing my Beyond Fiber, my Organic Green, BioEn’R-G’y C, and MACA.

A Naturopathic physician in Phoenix says household products may be linked to a number of women’s health conditions. 

Dr. Marianne Marchese says household products may be linked to a number of women’s health conditions, and she put those findings in her new book 8 Weeks to Women’s Wellness. 

According to her book , the average person can store hundreds of chemicals in the body. 

One of her patients Sarara Corva tells us she believes common household items may have contributed to her breast cancer. 

Infants & Plastic with comments by Linda, Dr. Gordon

Linda’s comment:  This is the very reason why most holistic/alternative doctors give their IV’s in glass bottles….plastic IV bags…..Can’t do anything about IV’s running through plastic lines…. I have to out-gas my oxygen tubes and nebulizer tubing before I can use them….I believe there is research going on, on how to makes some chemical FREE IV lines….<crossing fingers>
Dr. Gordon’s Comments: The parents’ concern about chemicals in IV bags and tubes are attempted to be answered in this very small study of 18 children. It tries to answer something about the potential for long-term adverse effects from phthalates delivered coincidentally with IV infusions through plastic lines that are now known to deliver toxins with the treatment.

Surrounded By Plastic, NICU Infants Tested For Risk
by Jon Hamilton
May 19, 2009 

Critically ill newborns may help researchers figure out whether children are at risk from plastic additives called phthalates. 

Scientists say the nation’s sickest newborns are exposed to unusually high levels of phthalates — chemicals in plastics that can mimic hormones — because they often spend days or weeks connected to feeding tubes, breathing tubes and intravenous lines made of plastic. And the exposure comes at a critical time in human development.

One doctor conducted a follow-up study by testing patients years after they were exposed to phthalates as infants in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Toxicity and pregnancy, with Dr. Gordon’s comments

Our toxicity concerns during pregnancy will start to be of interest to many and there is no affordable answer that beats things like Total Body Detox, Beyond Fiber, BioEnrG-Y C, Organic Green powder and Beyond Chelation-Improved.

At Risk From the Womb
Published: October 2, 2010

Some people think we’re shaped primarily by genes. Others believe that the environment we grow up in is most important. But now evidence is mounting that a third factor is also critical: our uterine environment before we’re even born. 

Researchers are finding indications that obesity, diabetes and mental illness among adults are all related in part to what happened in the womb decades earlier. 

One of the first careful studies in this field found that birth weight (a proxy for nutrition in the womb) helped predict whether an adult would suffer from heart disease half a century later. Scrawny babies were much more likely to suffer heart problems in middle age. 

That study, published in 1989, provoked skepticism at first. But now an array of research confirms that the fetal period is a crucial stage of development that affects physiology decades later. 

Perhaps the most striking finding is that a stressful uterine environment may be a mechanism that allows poverty to replicate itself generation after generation. Pregnant women in low-income areas tend to be more exposed to anxiety, depression, chemicals and toxins from car exhaust to pesticides, and they’re more likely to drink or smoke and less likely to take vitamin supplements, eat healthy food and get meticulous pre-natal care. 

The result is children who start life at a disadvantage — for kids facing stresses before birth appear to have lower educational attainment, lower incomes and worse health throughout their lives. If that’s true, then even early childhood education may be a bit late as a way to break the cycles of poverty. 

Dr. Gordon’s Comments – germline variants & sialic acid in autoimmunity

A relatively common defect involving Sialic acid –sets the stage for patients to develop autoimmune related illnesses! I continue to discuss my FIGHT program, as the best way to approach any autoimmune related

Possibly, in the future, with evidence this strong, genetic testing for this variant could lead to patients being advised to go on my FIGHT program before they have the symptoms of one of the over 100 different autoimmune related conditions. The best statistics today indicate that over 40% of us have difficulty with either dairy or gluten. So, before we start seeing auto-antibodies to our tissues, those with this variant might want to eliminate those foods and do the rest of the FIGHT program too.

Functionally defective germline variants of sialic acid acetylesterase in autoimmunity.

Sialic acid acetylesterase (SIAE) is an enzyme that negatively regulates B lymphocyte antigen receptor signalling and is required for the maintenance of immunological tolerance in mice. Heterozygous loss-of-function germline rare variants and a homozygous defective polymorphic variant of SIAE were identified in 24/923 subjects of European origin with relatively common autoimmune disorders and in 2/648 controls of European origin. All heterozygous loss-of-function SIAE mutations tested were capable of functioning in a dominant negative manner. A homozygous secretion-defective polymorphic variant of SIAE was catalytically active, lacked the ability to function in a dominant negative manner, and was seen in eight autoimmune subjects but in no control subjects. The odds ratio for inheriting defective SIAE alleles was 8.6 in all autoimmune subjects, 8.3 in subjects with rheumatoid arthritis, and 7.9 in subjects with type I diabetes. Functionally defective SIAE rare and polymorphic variants represent a strong genetic link to susceptibility in relatively common human autoimmune disorders.

Most people battling chronic Lyme disease think of the illness as an infection caused by a bacterium known commonly as Borrelia Burgdorferi, generally transmitted via the bite of an infected tick.  What many don’t recognize, however, is that recovery from chronic Lyme disease requires a recognition that the disease is truly a much more complex illness.  Recovery often challenges one to consider more than just infection as the single causative agent involved in the disease process.  It is through looking beyond the infectious component of Lyme disease and understanding the equally important aspects of damaging heavy metals and other toxic insults that a more full and lasting recovery may be realized.

Garry F. Gordon MD, DO, MD (H) co-founded the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) and serves as the President of Gordon Research Institute.  Dr. Gordon graciously spent a couple of hours with me sharing his views on chronic Lyme disease and those factors that are important in recovering from chronic illness. 

Dr. Gordon acknowledges Lyme disease as a serious infection which can lead to a wide-variety of health challenges.  He does not, however, hyperfocus on the specific tick-borne pathogens which cause the disease.  He instead believes that a multitude of infections are prevalent in anyone with chronic ill health.  In addition to these numerous infections, our state of health is closely tied to our total body burden of endogenous and exogenous toxins.  When looking at why illness is present, it is important to look at a number of factors including genetics, chronic infections, and total body burden of heavy metals and other toxins.

Peering into one’s genetic makeup can be quite helpful when establishing the proper course of action and considering what factors may have contributed to one’s state of health.  The more precisely a practitioner can understand the genetic contributors, the more accurately a treatment protocol can be outlined to fit a person’s unique needs.  As an example, a specific gene mutation can suggest an inability of the body to remove toxic heavy metals.  Thus, even tests performed to determine whether or not one is heavy metal toxic can be incorrect if the metals are not being released due to this specific genetic profile.  Where many doctors may miss a heavy metal toxicity issue in these patients, a practitioner incorporating a genetic review into their diagnostic workup is much better equipped to evaluate the potential impact of toxic metals on the overall state of health.
