At 50 I am on my first routine prescription, levothyroxin. I did not have any symptoms, but some lab work turned up TSH around 5 with two tests around 5 months apart.

Now 45 days of taking the prescription I do notice that I dont feel as fatigued at the end of a 2 hour strenuous but paced work out.

I was proud to tell doctor this was my first regular prescription and I believe she was happy to get me hooked onto big pharma.

My Aunt Helen lived to a very old age and she believed in massaging teeth. As a little kid I remember her
rubbing her gums and teeth with her fingers. There were no two minute tooth brushes back then.

But she had all her teeth. All her long life. So, massaging the gums is good. At least this was proved to be true by AH....

That is why I question the water pik...

I balked at the notion of an irrigator for ages. I've only had mine for a few years. My perspective is that I had multiple gum surgeries in middle age and for years got my teeth cleaned every 2 months to try to keep it under control. Now I go every six months and they rave about my hygiene, remark that there is absolutely no bleeding on probing. There are only three variables I can think of between then and now. One is my diet and the others are my sonic toothbrush and irrigator. There was a conspicuous change after I got the new tools. Previously I was still getting my teeth cleaned every 3 months. Then I went to four, then five, now six. I don't know if that result came from the toothbrush or the irrigator or the combination but I was impressed when I first started using the irrigator by all the crap it flushed out even after I had already brushed my teeth. I became a true believer when I was able to start spreading out my cleanings.

Gum massaging would be a good idea, seems to me, but not a substitute.

Levothyroxin is not exactly "big pharma" -- it's generic. I think mine costs about $2 at Rite Aid, although Blue Cross picks up most of it.

Glad to see you got diagnosed and are taking care of it. Low thyroid is bad for so many things.

ANATABLOC nutraceutical supplement at GNC Heart Attacks, Cancer and Strokes



Folks it all about inflammation-Heart Attacks, Cancer and Strokes


Read this WSJ article of September 3 , 2012 here http://on.wsj.com/Sh9dCX

Note they talk about Inflammation and the C-reactive Protein------There is third party testing that ANATABLOC is going on now regarding Anatabloc reducing CRP.This is huge in preventing strokes or heart disease. Anatabloc knocks CRP way down.....

Fred Couples -- His C Reactive Protein levels (an inflammation marker measured by blood tests) dropped from 6.5 to 0.8, according to his interview on ESPN's The Morning Drive through use of Anatabloc



Anatabloc attacks inflammation--watch this


VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmC3Ths-Mt8

Anatabloc® leverages the body’s natural process for regulating its own inflammation using anatabine, a naturally-occuring compound found in some plants, combined with Vitamin A and D3 to help the body to avoid excessive creation of inflammation. Pre-clinical studies have shown that this combination inhibits pro-inflammatory pathways, thereby helping maintain lower levels of inflammation.

Anatabine is a naturally-occurring alkaloid, found in eggplant, peppers, green tomatoes, tobacco, potatoes, and a variety of other plants and vegetables in the Solanaceae family. Anatabloc® stimulates a natural body process to promote a healthy inflammatory response.


I have been on for a couple months and am feeling its many benefits. I also have been collecting testimonies from others who have been on for a year. See below. Folks I am over sixty and am on zero meds from Big
Pharma. Zero. On Anatabloc do not need the Big Pharma drugs. Read testimony below. I went for blood work on Thursday--Blood Pressure reading 104/69. Like Scot below I feel much younger.....feel like million $$$$.

Subject: question

This is excellent. Thanks for sharing. Did you do this without exercise??? Just Anatabloc? Thanks

Quote from Scot regarding Anatabloc:


"But there are three things I have had improve dramatically and have numbers to measure them. Last year I weighted 215 lbs, now I'm at 185 lbs. My blood pressure was around 150/95, now it's 125/65 or lower. My lowest reading was 107/59, just last week. And my eyesight has improved by one full diopter, from -1.75 to -.75, I barely need correction anymore. I never expected any of those things to happen, but I'm really glad they did."

Subject: RE: question

I have been exercising moderately the whole time. The problem is before ANATABLOC it didn't seem to matter. I always wondered why I would gain weight by 3 to 5 pounds every year, even though I was known by my friends to eat right and exercise. One of my favorite meals is baked chicken and steamed vegetables,

I never eat fast food. I'm a moderate, I don't over commit either way. I would go into the gym and do the cycle for 20 minutes before I would play tennis. I walked 2 miles on the beach every day with my dog. Not over the top, but I wasn't going crazy with anything. Well, that kind of pisses you off after you gain 40 lbs when you think you are doing the right things to stay healthy. I wasn't over the top with the program, but I thought I should of held an optimal weight instead of getting worse every year with my lifestyle. Well, here is what I think is going on.


There are two kinds of fat that form in our bodies that can be a problem. Subcutaneous and visceral fat. Visceral is the more dangerous fat that forms around our internal organs and causes heart disease, cancer, diabetes, ect. It is formed by the over expression of, you guessed it, NF-kB. And, visceral fat causes more and more over expression of NF-kB all by itself. It's a feed back loop that makes itself a bigger and bigger problem. So moderation still causes problems because of auto- immune disease. ANATABLOC stops that loop, and it reduces the visceral fat in your body by blocking that loop. I don't have that shelf of hard fat in my abdomen anymore, it has gone away.


I didn't change anything except that I don't crave things like sugar, or late night eating anymore. So I don't over indulge because I don't have to. I still like sugar, but now I don't need it, and I'm sure it's the ANATABLOC doing that. I think I was pre-diabetic because my body was clogged up with inflammation, but now all of those problems have gone away. I feel 20 years, or more, younger. And even after a year on Anatabloc I still feel better every day. The reason I put my work address on an earlier message is because I like to talk to people face to face about what has happened to me on ANATABLOC. I like it when people come by my shop and talk about it. I absolutely think that it is the most important thing a person can do to protect one's health. I am absolutely amazed by the way it has helped me

Diabetes: “Cured by Wheat Belly”
by Dr. Davis

Take a look at Mary’s story posted on the Wheat Belly Blog:

I used to be diabetic. Now I am not. Cured by Wheat Belly.

Fasting blood sugar less then 87 mg/dl consistently. Postprandial [after-meal] readings at one hour at 100 mg/dl or less. HbA1c 5.5.

No dietician can tell me any lies about wheat or proper carb intake. I struggled for 10+ years following ADA [American Diabetes Association] diet guidelines. I gained 15+ pounds. I walked 15 miles a week at training heart rate.

I stopped all that nonsense because it only produced higher and higher blood sugar numbers, even on metformin and with exercise. Something was obviously wrong and I knew it wasn’t my laziness or overindulgence. It was the horrendous advice that was killing me!

Now I avoid carbs with the same dilgence that I avoid dieticians and doctors/nurses who give ADA advice. It doesn’t work and it never will. More people are diagnosed with diabetes and/or obesity every year. And with so many dieticians with such rock-solid advice? Hmm . . . Maybe it’s the dieticians who are propelling people to diabetes and obesity. That was certainly the case for me.

Thanks, Mary. Isn’t that wonderful? And, by saying goodbye to wheat, she has done more than “just” lose the diabetes, of course.

Let’s be clear on this: Grains and sugars CAUSE type 2 diabetes. Wheat is the worst of all grains and therefore wheat causes diabetes. (Wheat also causes type 1 diabetes, by the way, an entirely different, though VERY disturbing, conversation.) Let us count the ways:

1) The amylopectin A “complex” carbohydrate of wheat, given its unusual susceptibility to digestion by the salivary and stomach enzyme, amylase, raises blood sugar to sky-high levels. You know my line: Two slices of whole wheat bread raise blood sugar higher than 6 teaspoons of table sugar. (And, no, it does NOT mean eat white bread!)

2) High blood glucose damages the delicate pancreatic beta cells that produce insulin, a process called “glucotoxicity.”

3) Following consumption of highly-digestible carbohydrates, such as the amylopectin A of wheat, the process of liver de novo lipogenesis causes a flood of triglyceride-rich liver lipoproteins like VLDL particles to enter the bloodstream. This damages the pancreatic beta cells, a process called “lipotoxicity.”

4) Repetitive high blood sugars, such as that developing after a diet rich in “healthy whole grains,” via an uncertain cascade of events, leads to insulin resistance, that places greater demand on the pancreas to produce more insulin.

5) Insulin resistance triggers the accumulation of visceral fat: muffin top, love handles, or wheat belly.

6) Visceral fat is inflammatory fat that worsens insulin resistance.

The above are well documented. Less well documented but potentially just as important: The combined action of the gliadin protein of wheat and the lectin protein, wheat germ agglutinin, are directly toxic to the pancreas, as well as to the gastric/duodenal signaling apparatus for pancreatic endocrine/exocrine function.

In short: wheat consumption = diabetes. Accordingly, no wheat often means no diabetes. Key: Lose the wheat before it’s too late. Pancreatic beta cells for the most part do not regenerate once destroyed. If you have only 70% residual beta cell function remaining, for instance (VERY common), do it now or else the diabetes is irreversible.

It makes Novo Nordisk, Novartis, and Sanofi Aventis very happy when you have incurable type 2 diabetes. Note that the great majority of people on diabetes drugs–responsible for double-digit revenue growth in these diabetes drug manufacturers, recession be damned!–are taking them for a reversible, curable disease. People have heart attacks, develop breast cancer, have strokes, and undergo amputations of limbs and go blind . . . from this reversible disease.

The American Diabetes Association continues to advise diabetics to eat more “healthy whole grains” and to follow a diet that is dominated (60%+ of calories) by grains. They are nicely assisted in their cause by Novo Nordisk, Novartis, and Sanofi Aventis, not to mention Cadbury Schweppes, the world’s largest candy and soft drink manufacturer.

With all due respect to Dr. Davis, muffin top and love handles are subcutaneous fat, not visceral. I know he's a Dr. and all that but I know belly fat all too well.

Visceral fat is under the muscles, squishing your internal organs.

You know those guys, when you say, you're getting fat, and they say, no, I'm not, punch me right here, see how hard I am? And they are really fat but underneath the abdominal muscles so they tell themselves they are all muscle? That's visceral fat. Visceral fat doesn't jiggle.

Being tubby around the middle with subcutaneous fat is as bad as he says, but visceral fat is worse. It's just not muffin top. That's the stuff that drapes over the waistband of too tight jeans. It jiggles. Love handles jiggle.

Both kinds of belly fat are killers. Visceral fat is worse.
