Weight and Health Related Issues such as diabetes & hormone

We teach our clients the key benefits of non-pharmaceutical and integrative approaches for illness and disease reversal. Remember that the lymphatic system has no pump so in order to move the lymph through the body one needs to move physically. We speak of how important exercise is, but the importance of the very basics of continuous walking for a minim of 30 minutes a day cannot be stressed enough.  The use of Quantum biofeedback can actually help relieve stress from the body and cannot be left out of the equation of good health in todayís fast track society, but neither can drinking the correct water; negatively charges alkaline water from our aging younger water ionizer.

Obesity contributes negatively to every know illness and disease. When we are suggesting alternative treatment for obesity certainly the three energy improvements we just spoke of are important. But we need to examine obesity much more closely since we are the fattest nation on Earth, and un-healthy for it.

Introduction      

Americans may be the heaviest nation on the planet, but the rest of the world is following our leadership and catching up quickly.   Equally dramaticóand much less knownóis the scientific revolution that is changing our understanding of obesity. New research explains why excess fat by itself causes high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, cancer, strokes and arthritis and allows us to re-think strategies for achieving and maintaining leanness. Obesity and its related diseases are not just about weight; theyíre about the hormones produced by fat.

Doctors and scientists have thought of fat as no more than a repository of unused calories, an expanding storehouse, if you will, that is filled up by eating more than you burn. We now know that fat is a living organ, as active and interactive as the heart or kidneys or liver, and that fat regulates itself by producing its own set of hormones. The hormones produced by fat cells are called ADIPOKINES. They can increase or decrease appetite and metabolic rate, making weight control easier or harder. The discovery of adipokines sparked a revolution in our understanding of obesity. This is the breakthrough science that was the foundation for Gallandís book The Fat Resistance Diet.

Leptin
 

The revolution started in 1994 at New Yorkís Rockefeller University, when Dr. Jeffrey Friedman and his research team discovered that the fat cells of genetically obese mice failed to produce a chemical called LEPTIN.

Leptin was the first adipokine; this was the first hormone shown to be made exclusively, by fat cells. Researchers soon discovered that administration of leptin curbed the appetite and stimulated the metabolism of laboratory animals. Injecting leptin into genetically obese mice restored them to normal body weight. Leptin appeared to function as part of what scientists refer to as a negative feedback loop. When an animal is overfed and begins to gain weight, the increase in body fat leads to an increase in production of leptin, which in turn suppresses appetite and stimulates fat burning, restoring the animal to a normal lean weight. This process of internal self-correction is called "homeostasis" and it stabilizes the bodyís internal state, the way a weight at the bottom, stabilizes the top of a buoy bobbing in the water. 
 
The discovery of leptin raised great hopes that a natural cure for obesity lay around the corner. Excitement gave way to disappointment. Overweight humans are not leptin deficient: the more body fat, the higher the levels of leptin in blood. For people who are chronically overweight, the problem seems to be that leptin is not doing its job of reducing appetite and stimulating fat burning. The effect of leptin is blocked. Scientists call this state LEPTIN RESISTANCE. Returning to our image of the buoy, itís as if more and more bottom weight is needed to help the buoy stay upright, even when the water remains calm.

It is easy to see how we created todayís weight crisis. Technology has decreased our level of physical exertion. The ready availability of high calorie, ready-to-eat fast foods and snacks has increased consumption. Our fat regulatory system, based on leptin, is inefficient at limiting body fat. Its primary function throughout human history has been to sense body fat for survival during famine. Many scientists believe that the main evolutionary role of leptin was not to regulate weight or appetite, but to regulate fertility. Leptin is absolutely necessary for the normal function of reproductive organs. As fat storage falls, leptin levels drop. At a given level of thinness, a womanís ovaries stop working, solely because of leptin deficiency. This effect is seen today in thin young women with very low body fat. Leptin lets the brain know when there is enough food available to support offspring and prevents reproduction when food is scarce.

Fat also appears to regulate the processes by which the body burns fuel for energy, especially in muscle. Ad-ipo-nec-tin is the newest fat-produced hormone in the scientific spotlight. It also plays a central role in the biology of fat. Of all the ad-ipo-kines spewed out by fat cells, ad-ipo-nec-tin seems to be the most heroic. Recent studies show that ad-ipo-nectin curbs appetite and sparks the burning of fat, as does leptin. But unlike leptin, chronically overweight people donít suffer from resistance to the hormone. They have an outright deficiency. A lack of adequate ad-ipo-nectin is emerging as a significant factor in peopleís inability to melt flab and stay slim. When fat storages are low, fat cells secrete ad-ipo-nectin, which is a recently discovered ad-ipo-kine. Ad-ipo-nectin helps muscle cells burn fuel for energy more effectively. It acts as a kind of super-charger for maintaining strong and active muscles when stored energy reserves are low. When food is not available and fat storages drop, ad-ipo-nectin rises, helping muscle cells take up more sugar from the blood and also enabling them to burn fat more thoroughly as fuel. As fat storages increase, ad-ipo-nectin levels drop and the burning of fat as fuel actually becomes less complete. It is a process that allows the body to store fat in times of plenty as a hedge against famine, that is assumes is sure to come from past experience, such as in the case of yo-yo dieting.

Advice about eating less and exercising more has been a resounding failure. Diets, whether theyíre low calorie, low fat or low carbohydrate, all produce initial weight loss but do a lousy job of maintaining leanness, because normally (when you diet) your overall loss included lean muscle and that is absolutely not helpful. Lean muscle metabolizes and fat does not; making it likely you will increase fat in the body over time. If thereís a way that science can help us undo the damage technology has caused, then probably understanding and combating leptin resistance may well be the key.

Of all the theories that attempt to explain leptin resistance and suggest a way to reverse it, the one concept that best knits together everything we know about obesity and has the best chance of stopping this epidemic is the proven link between obesity, leptin and INFLAMMATION. 

 

Inflammation

Inflammation is part of the bodyís protective response to injury or infection. The ancient Greeks described it as an internal fire. The Romans recognized it by four attributes: redness, heat, swelling and pain. Scientists see those attributes in medical conditions that end in "-itis": arthritis, tonsillitis, appendicitis and others.

During the Nineteenth Century, scientists discovered that inflammation was produced by white blood cells that migrate from the blood stream and enter areas of infection or injury. Recent research has linked heart attacks and strokes to microscopic inflammation of the blood vessels. Although inflammation produces many of the symptoms associated with being sick or injured, it is a necessary part of healing. This is the major reason why we suggest to each of our clients who are coming to us to improve their health and or weight, that they should begin all of our programs with our Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver product. Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver in todayís dangerous world is the most important substance you can put into your body; it not only stops infection is kills virus as well, Swine Flu-H1N1, no more signs after taking our Rejuvenis Ionic OSH silver.

During the Twentieth Century, scientists uncovered the chemical basis of inflammation. It became clear that infection and inflammation could exist without redness, heat, swelling or pain and without a migration of white blood cells. This makes taking our
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver much more important to take as part of our overall health improvement programs. Also see Lupus because these same treatments apply.

Today, in the Twenty-first Century, inflammation is seen as a chemical state that can exist in all or part of your body without necessarily, producing symptoms. Its presence, due to hidden infection, is most accurately determined by measuring the levels of inflammatory chemicals in the inflamed tissue, or sometimes in a blood sample. Many of the chemicals associated with inflammation actually cause damage to cells. They are referred to as "mediators" of inflammation. Other chemicals are just signals that indicate inflammation is present. They are "markers" of inflammation. 

The biochemical understanding of inflammation has allowed scientists to recognize that your body controls the degree of inflammation, by producing anti-inflammatory substances that tend to decrease the pro-inflammatory signals.

Inflammation is the normal response of your body to all kinds of stress. This is a stimulus that provokes a reaction and that reaction acts as a stimulus to a counter-reaction that slowly returns your body to the state that existed before the initial stimulus. The whole process is called homeostasis and the pattern involves negative feedback loops. Negative feedback is a type of feedback in which the system responds in an opposite direction to the perturbation. Perturbation is a process of feeding back to the input a part of a system's output, so as to reverse the direction of change of that output. Homeostasis requires that all components of the negative feedback loops be in working order. Chronic inflammation results from the failure of homeostasis. This if further clarification that our  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver is a mandatory part of any program, especially our weight loss and body contouring programs.

How does fat itself cause inflammation? Many ad-ipo-kines, even leptin itself, are mediators of inflammation. They promote and encourage the inflammatory response, wherever it might be occurring. The more fat in your body, the higher the levels of these mediators in your blood and the greater the level of inflammation in your body. Hereís an example:

Scientistís have known for a long time that being overweight is associated with the development of osteo-arthritis, especially in the knees. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is thought to result from wear and tear on the cartilage that lines joints. Osteo-arthritis produces an overgrowth of bone that narrows the space in the joint and increases the likelihood of damage when the joint is moved. Doctors have thought that the reason osteo-arthritis is associated with obesity, is that being heavy increases the wear and tear on the knees, which was a simple physical explanation, wrong but simple. Recent research has found a chemical connection. Joint fluid in the knees of overweight people contains high levels of leptin, which is produced by fat, not by the joints themselves. Leptin in the joints causes infection, which causes inflammation. You should be seeing the pattern here, that combating infection with our
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver is mandatory for not only fighting every type of disease, but to reduce the infection and inflammation brought on by obesity.

Leptin also triggers the production of an anti-inflammatory chemical called TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta). TGF-beta is part of a negative feedback loop to naturally help reduce inflammation. But one of the effects of TGF-beta is to stimulate the growth of bone; in this case producing the bony overgrowth characteristic of osteo-arthritis. So the relationship between obesity and osteo-arthritis is not just created by how much you weigh; It is a hormonal relationship in which the bodyís normal homeostatic mechanisms go awry and produce disease. Balancing hormones also become a key defense mechanism to fighting obesity.

Everyone experiences trauma to their knees during the course of their lives. Lean people, like athletes, who experience extensive, repetitive trauma, are at risk for osteo-arthritis because the stimulus to inflammation and counter-inflammation is so intense.

People who are overweight develop osteo-arthritis because excess body fat causes an excessive inflammatory response to minor injury, which then triggers an increase in the counter-inflammatory response. The result is that both inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators are increased in obesity. The end result is no longer homeostasis but disease, which develop because of the unbridled activity of chemical mediators that fail in their effort to heal infection and this is where our  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver is mandatory to complement any of our complete programs especially that of our weight loss and hormone balancing. 

It gets worse; The inflammatory nature of fat is not only due to fat cells themselves. In addition to fat cells (referred to as ad-ipo-cytes), fat also contains blood vessels and white blood cells. Fat specifically attracts a type of white blood cell called a macrophage. Macrophage literally means "large eater" and macrophages are large white blood cells that gobble up cellular debris. They are scavengers, sometimes called "garbage men of the immune system." The macrophages found in fat are major producers of inflammatory mediators, especially a substance called Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF). TNF is well known in medicine, because high levels of it produce much of the tissue damage and pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. Fatty tissue can be laden with TNF-producing macrophages. In some animal studies, over 40% to 50% of cells found in adipose tissue were macrophages. 

What are all these macrophages doing in a personís layers of fat?

Biologists donít yet have all the answers, but one theory is that the bloated fat cells of people who are overweight actually leak or break open, this creates infection and white blood cells run to the defense. Macrophages are then mobilized from the blood to move into the leaky fat tissue and clean up the mess.

Once embedded in adipose tissue, macrophages begin spewing out inflammatory chemicals, especially TNF and a related mediator called Interleukin-6 (IL-6). Chemical mediators like TNF and IL-6 produced by white blood cells are called cy-to-kines, because they increase the activity of white blood cells. (Cyto- is Greek for "cell" and kinesis means "movement or activity". When we introduce our  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver infection and inflammation begin to be controlled.

Ad-ipo-kines are cy-to-kine  like chemicals produced by fat cells. Attracted by the cy-to-kines in fatty tissue, without the assistance of our  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver, then more white blood cells move in to assist in mopping-up of the infection, releasing more cytokines and increasing the level of inflammation.

One of the more radical research findings in fat biology suggests that fat cells are actually cousins of macrophages. It appears that very young fat cells (called pre-ad-ipo-cytes) can be transformed into Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF)-spewing macrophages, rather than maturing into normal ad-ipo-cytes due to this huge amount of undetectable infection.

A group of French researchers discovered that pre-ad-ipo-cytes become macrophages when prompted to do so by cy-to-kines. Their finding is another example of the dynamic complexity of fat and hidden infection that produces inflamation. Fat cells are intimately connected to and sometimes interchangeable with, cells of the immune system. They both create and react to a wide range of hormones and mediators. Fat can be thought of as part of the immune system and part of the endocrine (hormone) system at the same time. Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), in fact, is both a cy-to-kine (a mediator produced by macrophages) and an ad-ipo-kine (is a hormone produced by fat cells). Whatever its source, TNF and its inflammatory relatives can wreak havoc with our fat-storage-and-management systems, if we donít attack the source, infection, with our Rejuvenis Ionic OSH Silver. TNF interferes with the operation of insulin, and is therefore a major contributor to insulin resistance. So, too, is another ad-ipo-kine called
re-sis-tin.

 What we see in obesity is the swelling of fat tissue accompanied by harsh cellular activity due to infection, most of it is pushing the body toward a state of excess inflammation. Among the pro-inflammatory substances made by fat cells themselves are leptin, Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), IL-6, and re-sis-tin. Add the contribution of fat-embedded macrophages and their own payload of TNF and IL-6, and biologists are beginning to view fat as a brewery of inflammatory chemicals, if we donít intercede with our Rejuvenis Ionic OSH Silver. 

The whole body is affected by this state of affairs, since inflammatory activity is not limited to fat tissue but spills over into the bloodstream. Thus, overweight people become subject to a body-wide state of chronic low immune system response and low-grade inflammation from the infection, induced by fat itself.

The effect of fat on inflammation is just half of the cycle. The effects of inflammation on fat, are equally intense. 

When inflammation is severe, as in a life-threatening infection, it can cause tremendous weight loss. With severe inflammation, the body cannibalizes itself and both fat and muscle cells are destroyed. This is not a good way to lose weight. The breakdown of muscle is always greater than the breakdown of fat and muscle metabolizes and fat does not. 
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver is an ultra fine, ultra pure solution containing nothing but pure water and silver ions making the particle size extremely small. NASA did tests and found that the large partial Silver (symbol Ag+) in concentrations of 50 ppb (parts per billion) of the impure large particle silver was highly effective after 4 hours or less at stopping infection by killing virus and bacteria and that larger concentrations of impure large partial Silver in concentrations of 250 ppb were highly effective in 2 hours or less. Our pure highly refined  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver with extremely small particle size at 23 PPM (parts per million) reduces the necessary exposure to minutes.

When inflammation is both mild and chronic, because of the fact that it is producing few symptoms and only subtle changes on blood tests, inflammation has a silent but very different effect on your metabolism. Chronic low-grade inflammation makes your brain and body resistant to the normal regulatory effects of leptin and other hormones, including insulin and cortisol.

Insulin and cortisol are not ad-ipo-kines. Insulin is made in the pancreas and cortisol is made in the adrenal glands. In excess, either can have a devastating effect on your attempts to lose weight or balance hormones.

High insulin levels prevent the breakdown of fat. Cortisol actually causes fat cells to grow. When there are high cortisol levels, we ask our clients to walk 60 minutes in the morning sunlight, just as the sun is coming up. Then we ask them to collect saliva samples over the course of one day and send it o our laboratory, to determine their circadian rhythm. This will identify their cortisol levels and then we suggest some of our supplement that will either raise or lower the cortisol, depending on the time of day, it registered too high or too low. Supplement to consider are our adaptogens, one being Seriphos, which is a supplement that will help decrease cortisol. Seriphos is a phosphorylated Serine as a calcium and magnesium derivative in a base of calcium and magnesium ethanolamine phosphate. Mineral nutrients provided are elemental electrolytes, calcium 45 mg, and - magnesium 45 mg. and-Phosphorus 190 mg.

One marker of inflammation, that has received considerable attention over the past two years, is "C-reactive protein" or CRP. Mild elevation of the level of CRP in blood is associated with obesity and with weight gain. Weight loss, on the other hand, produces a decrease in CRP. In people with a history of heart disease, mild elevation of CRP predicts an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. In adults who develop diabetes, elevated CRP occurs before the onset of diabetes. In people with normal blood pressure, elevated CRP predicts the future development of high blood pressure. In aging adults, high CRP is associated with muscle weakness and frailty. Studies of CRP have proven the close relationship between silent, chronic inflammation and the development of the most common chronic diseases of modern society. This one of the most logical pieces of evidence to persuade you to include
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver in any constructive improved health our weight program you may consider.

Inflammation and fat, share a complex relationship as mentioned. When inflammation is severe, as in a life-threatening infection, it can cause tremendous weight loss. With severe inflammation, both fat and muscle cells are destroyed with the bodyís on cannibalism; the breakdown of muscle is always greater than the breakdown of fat. When inflammation is both mild and chronic, however, producing few symptoms and only subtle changes on blood tests, inflammation has a very different effect on your metabolism. It disrupts hormones. Acting through the complex networks of chemicals involved in the bodyís attempt at homeostasis, inflammation makes your cells resistant to the normal regulatory effects of leptin and other hormones, including insulin and cortisol.

These hormones are not ad-ipo-kines, but they can have a devastating effect on your attempts to lose weight. We want you to understand the vicious cycle that keeps you from living lean: FAT ITSELF CAUSES INFLAMMATION. Without stopping infection inflammation will control your body; and stopping infection begins with  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver.

Many ad-ipo-kines, even leptin itself, are chemical mediators of inflammation. Remember what I stated above about mediators. They are chemicals associated with inflammation that actually cause damage to cells. The more fat in your body, the higher the levels of these mediators in your blood and the greater the level of inflammation in your body. Not only does this fat-derived inflammation prevent leptin from helping you lose weight, it causes other hormonal effects that interfere with permanent weight loss. Inflammation raises the level of insulin and cortisol, these are two hormones that actually cause your body to make more fat.

 

           Insulin and cortisol from the effects of obesity

Insulin is a hormone produced in your pancreas. Its best-known effect is to lower blood sugar by driving sugar and other nutrients into cells, especially muscle cells. Your muscles need insulin to help them produce energy and recover from the effects of exercise. Inflammation interferes with the effect of insulin on your muscles. Just as inflammation causes leptin resistance, it is a major cause of INSULIN RESISTANCE.

With insulin resistance, your muscles are not fully responsive to insulin, so they donít efficiently burn the sugar that circulates in your blood. As a result, your blood sugar starts to rise. Your pancreas responds by releasing more insulin. When the degree of insulin resistance outpaces the ability of your pancreas to produce more insulin, diabetes occurs. Whether or not you actually develop diabetes, high levels of circulating insulin can have serious negative effects on your body.

There are some actions of insulin that occur outside of muscle and are not impaired during insulin resistance. As insulin levels increase, these effects of insulin are felt. High insulin levels make your kidneys retain fluid, raising your blood pressure and creating that feeling of being bloated and swollen. High insulin levels prevent cells from breaking down fat, making it harder to lose weight through dieting. Insulin also turns on genes that produce a number of mediators of inflammation, so with high insulin, as with high leptin, the level of inflammation in your body increases. Adapting a well rounded program of good nutrition, eating regularly, improving your exercise habits, supplementing your diet so all the nutrients are available to the body and including our infection and inflammation fighter  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver, is the sensible improved health and weight loss program.

Your brain and your adrenal glands are attuned to the level of inflammation in your body. Without adapting the good health program just mentioned, as inflammation increases, your brain sends a signal to your adrenal glands to produce more of a hormone called cortisol. You may be familiar with cortisone, a synthetic pharmaceutical drug used to relieve symptoms of inflammation like itching, redness or pain. Cortisol is the equivalent of the drug, made in your own adrenal glands in response to stress. Cortisol naturally combats inflammation, but at a high price, but may not be as high a price as the synthetic pharmaceutical steroid drug cortisone, because some of its side effects are
it can weaken your immune system, making it easier for you to get an infection or worsening an infection you already have or have recently had, creating an even worse vicious cycle. The bodyís Natural Cortisol, as bad as it is, increases the amount of belly fat. It also causes fluid retention, muscle weakness, memory loss, high blood pressure, and further raises your blood sugar. The increase in blood sugar then stimulates a further increase in insulin. This is some reasoning why we suggest our adrenal stress saliva testing to determine your cortisol levels and then to begin balancing we would suggest our adaptogens such as Seriphos as well as walking in the morning sunshine, to help lower the cortisol and correct the circadian rhythm.

           
Insulin is a hormone produced in your pancreas. Its best known effect is to lower blood sugar by driving sugar and other nutrients into cells, especially muscle cells, as indicated above. Your muscles need insulin to help them produce energy and recover from the effects of exercise. Inflammation interferes with the effect of insulin on your muscles. Just as inflammation causes leptin resistance, it is a major cause of INSULIN RESISTANCE. It just makes sense to improve health in the logical manner of diet, exercise, supplementation and adding inflation fighting
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver.

With insulin resistance, your muscles are not fully responsive to insulin, so they donít efficiently burn the sugar that circulates in your blood. As a result, your blood sugar starts to rise. Your pancreas responds by releasing more insulin.

When the degree of insulin resistance outpaces the ability of your pancreas to produce more insulin, diabetes occurs.

Whether or not you actually develop diabetes, high levels of circulating insulin can have serious negative effects. There are some actions of insulin that occur outside of muscle and are not impaired during insulin resistance earlier mentioned, which were; as insulin levels increase, these effects of insulin are felt. High insulin levels make your kidneys retain fluid, raising your blood pressure and creating that feeling of being bloated and swollen.

High insulin levels prevent cells from breaking down fat, making it harder to lose weight through standard dieting. Insulin also turns on genes that produce a number of mediators of inflammation, so with high insulin, as with high leptin, the level of inflammation in your body increases. Your brain and your adrenal glands are attuned to the level of inflammation in your body. As inflammation increases, your brain sends a signal to your adrenal glands to produce more of a hormone called cortisol. This is a vicious cycle that you must make the proper choices to intervene or, suffer greatly the serious consequences of illness and disease.

HOW DOES INFLAMMATION CAUSE LEPTIN RESISTANCE?


Fat biology researchers have uncovered what many believe to be the key mechanisms of leptin resistance. Dr. Jeffrey Flier and his colleagues at Harvard Medical School have led these efforts. They have discovered that a group of molecules involved in reducing inflammation also interfere with leptin signaling on the cell surface and inside the cell. These molecules are known as SOCS, which stands for suppressors of cytokine signaling. Two specific SOCS molecules, SOCS-1 and SOCS-3, have been shown in many animal studies, first by Flierís group and later by other research teams, to jam the signals that leptin is supposed to deliver to brain cells and muscle cells.

What is the significance of the fact that SOCS molecules are key causes of leptin resistanceóthe fundamental factor in stubborn overweight? SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 are both part of the bodyís response to inflammation. What have we been saying about stopping inflammation by stopping the infection from occurring with Rejuvenis Ionic OSH Silver? It should be used in conjunction with the support of good nutrition, improved exercise, drinking the correct water and supplementation.

When suppressors of cytokine signaling are working properly, our levels of inflammation are kept in balance by overlapping feedback loops. When particular arms of the inflammation system go into gear, provoked, for example, by the presence of a bacterial invader or a sudden injury, which bring on infection, another set of chemicals is released to make certain that the chemistry of inflammation doesnít spiral out-of-control, causing excessive damage to cells and tissues. SOCS molecules represent the message-carriers in one of these negative feedback loops. Their message to inflammatory cells and cytokines is: "Cool down!" and if the infection is mild enough, SOCS proteins are an essential part of the bodyís system of checks and balances, with a healthy body will help fight off the infection without intervention. When they work, as they should in a healthy body, SOCS molecules succeed in checking excess inflammation. As inflammation subsides, levels of SOCS also subside.

Immuno-biologists believe that overweight people with chronic inflammation have chronically high levels of SOCS, released in a continual effort to damp down their body-wide inflammation. This has the chilling effect truth from those of us in the natural wellness industry; due to the fact that overweight people by default are un-healthy people, with poor functioning immune system.

 Indeed, elevated SOCS proteins have been found in the brain, liver, muscle, and to a lesser extent, the fat tissue of obese animals. High SOCS levels are a sign that the overweight animal is "over-inflamed" and trying to tone the inflammation down.

Studies done at Harvard have found SOCS molecules in the hypothalamus, which is a walnut-sized structure at the base of the brain that regulates mood, thirst, and hunger had interesting findings. The Harvard studies show that SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 jam leptinís signal at the internal portion of the leptin receptor. Bottom line: SOCS molecules interrupt leptinís message to suppress hunger, and they are primary causes of leptin resistance in the brain.  Therefore the vicious cycle of obesity is fed so to speak, with the constant hunger signals never being interrupted in the obese person.

Other studies suggest that SOCS-1 and SOCS-3 also interfere with leptinís effects in muscle and other organs outside the brain. In these sites, jamming of the leptin signal can lead to sluggish metabolism; which can be contributing to your lack of energy. Remember, an active SOCS system is strong evidence that the person is already suffering from chronic inflammation that the body is trying to get under control. Rejuvenis Ionic OSH Silver should be part of the recovery system to fight this inflammation.

Adding more fuel to the fire of inflammationís role in fat, introduced by another research team from Harvardís Joslin Diabetes Center showed that the exact same molecules, SOCS-1 and SOCS-3, play a distinctly similar role in hampering insulin sensitivity. Their research, published in 2004, demonstrated how these molecules trigger insulin resistance by interfering with the successful connection of insulin to its matching receptor on the surface of your cells. This is yet  more evidence that you should make the proper choices now to bring your body back into balance with our improved health and weight programs we have been mentioning.

Under the influence of chronic inflammation, hormones that should function to protect your health are thrown into disarray. As their levels increase, they begin to destroy your health, encouraging weight gain and more inflammation. For those that have a chronic weight problem, this is the vicious cycle they face, whenever they try to lose weight and keep it off. Donít ever let anyone tell you that weight problems are not the result of hormones. They are totally dependent upon hormones that misfire. Breaking the vicious cycle of obesity, inflammation and hormone disruption or imbalance is the greatest nutritional challenge in the world today and we have the answers for you. 

Drugs will not fix this problem. The problem with pharmaceutical drugs is: there arenít any that do the right thing. Drugs that are used to treat the kind of inflammation associated with pain, like aspirin and ibuprofen, donít act on the part of inflammation that produces hormone resistance, which is the infection. At high doses, they cause fluid retention, which only increases the bloating you feel. It is ridicules not to attack the problem and not just the symptom.

NOTICE: There is something that can counter the kind of inflammation associated with obesity or illness that attacks the problem and doesnít just mask the symptom like drugs: and that is
 Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver, proper nutrition, eating regularly, exercising regularly, drinking the correct water  and supplementing the body with the nutrients robed from our todayís food supply.

 A major problem of the modern, obesity-causing dietóoften overlookedóis that the natural, inflammation-fighting components of food have been removed.

Itís true that our food supply is loaded with concentrated manmade high calorie ingredients, like added sugar and added fats, which are easy to slurp down. Just as important, is what has been removed from our food: nutrients that fight inflammation. What are they? There are two major categories: GOOD FATS and PHYTONUTRIENTS.

Omega-3 fats

            Heart health:

Good fats are starting to receive the attention they deserve. They are known as OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS, because of their unique chemical structure. They are found in fish, green leafy vegetables, and some nuts, beans and seeds. We offer the most pristine Omega-3 cold water krill, Rejuvenis Omega-3.

Some of the popular weight loss diets of the past few years have talked about good fats, usually in conjunction with "good carbs". Most of them have you get your supply of omega-3ís from fish oil rather than from food. Thatís a shame because fresh fish oils exposed to the air convert to Omega-6ís; also because foods containing omega-3ís, contain other natural inflammation fighters as well.

Most of the fat we eat is composed of fatty acids, which are made from long strings of carbon atoms linked together. Itís the type of fatty acids in the fat that determine its nature.

SATURATED FAT: Saturated fat is solid at room temperature, butter for example or coconut oil or the fat you trim from a steak; these are called "saturated" because hydrogen atoms surround all of the carbon atoms in them. All chemical linkages are filled; no potential chemical bonds are left unfilled. They are completely saturated; the string of carbons gets straight and stiff.

UNSATURATED FAT: Fatty acids in which some of the carbon atoms have chemical bonds that are not filled by hydrogen are called Unsaturated Fat; they tend to curve and get softer. They get liquid at room temperature, like most vegetable oils. The more liquid oil gets, the more unsaturated it is said to be.

MONOUNSATURATED OIL: Monounsaturated oil is Olive oil, which is liquid at room temperature but when refrigerated it congeals and becomes goopy.

POLYUNSATURATED OIL: Polyunsaturated oils can be some corn oils that stay liquid in your refrigerator and in your freezer will thicken.

OMEGAí3: The most unsaturated of all the fats you consume, are fish oil. Even in the freezer a high grade omega-3 fish oil will remain a liquid.

 Whatís important about omega-3 fats is not just omega-3ís  fluidity; it is important to note that the name,omega-3ís , refers to a chemical structure related only to it. We are not able to produce omega-3ís in our body or to develop them with any body process, or to transform any other kinds of fat into omega-3ís. We have to get them from food or a pristine supplement, such as our Rejuvenis Omega-3 we provide our clients at the Anti-Aging Clinic.

Omega-3ís  actively fights inflammation naturally. The Anti-Aging Clinic Assoc., Inc., in Tamarac Florida, actively encourages our clients to use omega-3ís to supplement their diet for the many years that our research and development center has been open. We stress that the Rejuvenis omega-3ís  gel capsule must contain the pristine cold water omega-3ís  krill oil. The products we support must pass a rigorous acceptance process, and, must be able to be tested in the body for their effectiveness. We offer several types of testing to authenticate the effectiveness in each of our clients.

In the beginning scientistís thought that omega-3ís were similar to aspirin that reduce the levels prostaglandins, which are inflammatory mediators. But further research has shown that omega-3ís do much more. Their anti-inflammatory effects extend further than aspirinís anti-inflammatory effects and without the negatives produced by aspirin. Some aspirin side effects can be: increased bleeding, induces gastrointestinal bleeding, can raise the probability of getting Reyeās syndrome in children and teenagers, and can cause overdose poisoning.

Rejuvenis Omega-3ís  are a natural component of various complex regulatory systems in the cells of our bodies. Rejuvenis Omega-3ís fats have proven value for assistance in prevention of heart attacks, heart arrhythmias, high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, colitis, asthma, schizophrenia, depression, and dementia.

 In the beginning and up the industrial revolution, omega-3ís  for humans were obtained from consuming wild animals and farm raised cattle. These animals ate grass and leaves and they stored omega-3ís  fats in the meaty flesh, which was eaten by humans. Cattle in todayís commercial farms and ranches are fed corn or soy from manufactured feeds absent the omega-3ís  and therefore not in the animals meat.

Commercialized agriculture and fish farming has eliminated omega-3ís as well and now the major sources of omega-3ís  are from wild fish, beans, nuts, seeds and leafy greens vegetables; plus navy beans and kidney beans, making it absolutely essential that we supplement. Walnuts and Flax seed are other excellent sources of omega-3ís ; walnuts were the health food of the Romans.

Purslane, another source has many uses in Greek cooking and supplied the ancient Greeks with a source of omega-3ís . Our generation has witnessed a progressive depletion of omega-3ís  from our food supply and from other cultures around the world as well. Because omega-3ís  make food have a short shelf life, processed food manufacturers systematically removed them from foods for humans and feed for animals. The result is a deficiency of omega-3ís  in all industrialized countries. Problems of coronary heart disease, obesity and chronic inflammation have exponentially exploded onto the seen. Any correction of our mistakes because of this must be in the choices be make for our future health and one choice should be by adding Rejuvenis omega-3ís  cold water krill to your diet.

 Phytonutrients

     "Phyto" means plant and the term "phytonutrient" applies to nutritional substances found in organically grown plant food that is allowed to ripen on the vine or tree, improves the way your body functions.

The plants we eat, even though they are picked green, still contain thousands of phytonutrients, all be it, they are missing the vital ones only mother nature can provide by allowing her to complete her job.

The appetizing colors of fresh fruits and vegetables derive from the presence of anti-inflammatory phytonutreints known as carotenoids and flavonoids are vital nutrients.

Carotenoids are fat-soluble compounds that range in hue from light yellow to deep orange. The best-known carotenoid is beta-carotene, the orange pigment evident in carrots and cantaloupe. But other carotenoids, like lutein, lycopene and zeaxanthin, have recently received considerable attention for their benefits in preserving vision and fighting cancer.

We recommend a diet with Omega-3 protein and high in mixed carotenoids. fruits and vegetables that contain carotenoids; such as carrots, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, winter squash and papaya are good health food.

Flavonoids typically range from bright yellow to deep purple in hue. Important anti-inflammatory flavonoids are found in blueberries, cherries, pomegranate, citrus fruits, purple grapes, green tea, onions, dark chocolate and many herbs and spices.

In the U.S., perhaps more than in any other country, food has gotten blander and blander, being grown of mineral nutrient depleted soil. American tastes have grown accustomed to the taste of manmade sugar, fat and the unhealthy iodized salt.

A major defect of almost every weight loss diet is its reliance on manmade sugar substitutes, fake manmade fats and manmade artificial flavors to reduce caloric intake. If you use these manufactured ingredients in an effort to lose weight, you are reinforcing the brainwashing of your appetite, which believes it can only be satisfied by a sweetness or oiliness or saltiness that overpowers all other flavors of food, which may be subtle or pleasantly pungent or tart in taste. As much as you need to avoid empty calories and junk food, you need to embrace the herbs and spices that lend amazing taste to meals and snacks and to remember:

There is something that can counter the kind of inflammation associated with obesity or illness that attacks the problem and doesnít just mask the symptom like drugs: and that is  Rejuvenis OSH ionic Silver, proper nutrition, eating regularly, exercising regularly, drinking the correct water  and supplementing the body with the nutrients robed from our todayís food supply.
