Alternative Medicines Or Supplementation


I’ve always been skeptical about certain alternative medicines or supplementation especially those from Multi-Level marketing firms. I’ve tried quite a few in my day, like Spirulina but to me there’s nothing special or spectacular about it.

But when you have become parents and your children have fallen sick to virus attacks then you pray and hope there are some forms of alternatives you can look into, in an otherwise hopeless wait-and-see situation.

Well I have found two products which in my opinion is worth looking into, though I will not be stating any brands or company names. In fact I have new found faith in both of them….

First is Bovine Colostrum…..

Colostrum enhances assimilation of nutrients through the intestines and thus increase the efficiency of carbohydrate and amino acid uptake. Growth factors in Colostrums help “seal” the lining of the small intestine and provide protection from invading organisms and from ulceration, so more of the nutrients from the food you eat can be utilized as fuel for exercise, whether of the cardiovascular or muscle building variety. This partially accounts for the increased levels of energy that users of Colostrums report.

Colostrums contains both broad spectrum and specific factors that help our body fight off all sorts of viral, bacterial, fungal and allergenic invaders. MIP Colostrum supplements the body with the actual critical immune factors that the body needs to fight infection (Immunoglobulin, Leukocytes, Cytokines, Lactoferrin, Interferon, and PRP).

Colostrum contains five types of specific antibodies. The letter Ig, which means Immunoglobulin, identifies them. These anti-bacterial and anti-viral factors in colostrums are known by such names as IgG, IgM, IgD, and IgE. Most circulate in the blood and lymph systems ready to attack invading bacteria, viruses, allergens and fungi. IgG is the most prevalent of anti-bodies found in colostrums. Their purpose is to help destroy invading pathogens. IgG carries the mother’s passive immunity factors onto the receiver.

It can even neutralize poisonous toxins and helps its expulsion out of the Immunoglobulin (A, D, E, G and M): Each performs its own function but as a whole they neutralize toxins and fight viruses and bacteria. PRP (Polyproline-Rich Peptides) is a master regulator of the thymus gland (in charge of producing T-cells that fight viruses and antigens). PRP balances an under active immune system and an over active immune system where the body is actually attacking itself (MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Sclera Derma and allergies).

Colostrum contains powerful anti aging and healing growth factors (epithelial growth factor, EgF, insulin-like growth factor -1, transforming growth factor A & B, TgF A & B and growth hormone, GH).

These vital growth factors boost cell and tissue growth by stimulating DNA and RNA formation. Studies show that these growth factors are also capable of increasing T-cells, accelerating healing, balancing blood sugar levels, increasing muscle and bone growth, increasing fat utilization and increasing stamina andstrength.

The Growth Factors in colostrums include: Insulin-like growth factor I and II (IgF-1 and IgF-II): Every cell in our body has an IgF-1 receptor. IgF1 allows each cell to enter an active stage. This means that the cell can then heal itself or replicate. IgF-1 is also believed to cross the blood brain barrier to provide increased mental acuity and increase Serotonin uptake.

The growth factors in Colostrums are the most widely researched and reported hormonal factors in the world today. Naturally produced by a young and healthy body but decreasing with age, growth hormone replacement shows outstanding promise in reversing or slowing the aging process.

Some of the many active components within Colostrum include such vitamins as: A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, Folic Acid and Biotin. Mineral contents include Calcium, Potassium, Phosphorous, Sodium and Magnesium, to name a few. All amino acids are also present.

Good Grade Colostrum includes :-

Leukocytes
White blood cells that stimulate the production of interferon which has been shown to slow viral reproduction and inhibit the viruses’ penetration of the cellular wall.

Lysozyme
A hydrolysing agent with immune system boosting capabilities that can destroy bacteria and viruses on contact.

Cytokines
These are composed of Interleukins that regulate the immune response. They also control cell to cell communication and boost the activity of T-cells. One cytokine, interleukin-10 is highly anti-inflammatory, especially in arthritic joints. Cytokines are also highly antiviral and anti-tumorous.

Glycoprotein and Trypsin Inhibitors
They keep the immune and growth factors in MIP colostrums from destruction in the stomach and Gastro Intestinal tract. They also prevent the Helicobacter Pylori Bacteria (shown to be the cause of stomach ulcers) from attaching to the stomach wall.

Lymphokines
Hormone-like peptides that regulate immune response. Oligo polysaccharides and glyco-conjugates are saccharides (sugars) that attract and bind to pathogens such as streptococcus E coli, salmonella, cryptosporidia, giardia, entamoeba, shigella, clostridium difficile toxins A & B and cholera and prevent them from attaching to or entering the body’s intestinal mucus membranes.

Lactoferrin
An iron binding protein with antiviral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. It has been shown to effect cancer, HIV, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, Candida albicans and other infections. Lactoferrin plays an important role in our body’s defence against disease.

Polyproline-Rich Peptides (PRP)
A hormone that regulates the thymus gland, which regulates the production of Tcells. PRP can stimulate a weak immune system and can balance an overactive immune system. An overactive immune system has been shown to be linked to multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma and allergies.

What are Antibodies
Antibodies are very specialized molecules that are produced by the body’s immune system. They are produced in response to the host being exposed to an immunogenic or foreign substance (antigen) such as an infectious microbe. There action is to ward off and or neutralise potentially disease-causing agents. A very important feature of antibodies is that are directed specifically to their antigen that induced their formation.

What are growth factors

Growth factors are very small bio-active molecules which promote growth and maturation of various cell types and tissues. They are found in very high concentrations in colostrum. They not only stimulate normal growth and development but also help regenerate and accelerate the repair of aged or injured muscle, skin, bone, cartilage and nerve tissues. Growth factors also stimulate the body to burn fat for fuel instead of muscle tissue in times of fasting or dieting. They also help build lean muscle and have been shown to have a positive effect on athletic performance.

What are Immune Factors

In addition to immunoglobulins there are other substances in colostrum that have an immune function. Collectively they have been termed “Immune Factors”. Their function is to complement the various functions associated with the immune response

What are Immunoglobulins

The immunoglobulins are a group of specialised bio-active proteins or molecules found in serum and other tissue fluids, including the milk of all mammals. There are five classes of immunoglobulin that are recognised in mammals Immunoglobulin G (IgG), Immunoglobulin A (IgA), Immunoglobulin M (IgM), Immunoglobulin E (IgE), and Immunoglobulin D (IgD).

The function of these molecules is to bind to invading organisms and to activate specific actions that help prevent to prevent infection and to rid the body of disease causing agents. They function in cell killing, inflammation and prevention of bacterial and viral attachment. The most prevalent class of immunoglobulin in all species is IgG. Immunoglobulins have an integral role in the immune defence system in that they form antibodies.

The Second Product is Aerobic Oxygen….

Aerobic Oxygen. Is this the answer to a Natural Antibiotic?
Most if not all diseases we suffer are caused mainly by germs and viruses. Aerobic Oxygen will assist you to kill diseases that are motivated by viruses and germs.

Aerobic Oxygen consists of stabilized oxygen molecules and serves two purposes:

* It kills all anaerobic (infectious) bacteria while leaving untouched bacteria that is harmless / good for you.
* It aerates water (adds oxygen to it, keeping harmful bacteria from growing in it).In addition, the stabilized oxygen molecules add oxygen to your blood and body, rejuvenating tired muscles.

Aerobic Oxygen is not a Chlorine Dioxide product, nor does it contain Hydrogen Peroxide. There is a distinct difference between all three. A simple w\pH test will show that there is no H202 in Aerobic Oxygen. H202 is very acidic and Aerobic Oxygen is very alkaline. This is one of the tremendous benefits of Aerobic Oxygen. Aerobic Oxygen does not have a formula, it is a compound created by a process and reaction to the ingredients used to produce the non-toxic, stable oxygen compound that it is. All the ingredients used are food grade.

The ability to harness the powerful benefits of oxygen is what sets Aerobic Oxygen apart from any other product on the market today. The process used to stabilise the oxygen molecules in Aerobic Oxygen has never been patented thus maintaining the secret of this process. Many have tried, however no one has succeeded to duplicate the process that stabilises the oxygen molecules in the same manner as found in the Aerobic Oxygen.

Aerobic Oxygen has a history of over 30 years with no contradictions and no toxic side effects. No other product has this type of history. No other product has producted more benefits for more people.

Reasons why we are not getting enough oxygen.

Modern day stress depletes our oxygen reserves.

If the body is stressed it will cause an oxygen deficiency, and there are four major types of stress which deplete oxygen:

1. TOXIC STRESS: Stress resulting from toxic environmental chemicals requires the use of extra oxygen; since oxygen is used in all detoxification processes.

2. EMOTIONAL STRESS: Stress everyone is familiar with; it brings about the production of adrenaline and adrenal-related hormones which utilize oxygen.

3. PHYSICAL TRAUMA: Reduces circulation and the subsequent oxygen supply to a great many cells and tissues throughout the entire body.

4. INFECTIONS: They use up “free-radical” forms of oxygen to combat bacteria, fungi and viruses. Frequent use of drugs to counteract infections also depletes cellular oxygen since oxygen is required to metabolize them out of the system.

The four modern-day stressors – toxic stress, emotinal stress, phusical trauma and infections – draw upon and excessively deplete the body’s oxygen supply.

If the stress or stressor are not reduced, the individual becomes susceptible to a number of infirmities. Oxygen is indeed an important key to good health, and research has shown that there is a significant difference in the amount of oxygen in a strong healthy person and a chronically ill individual.

“AEROBIC OXYGEN” heals nothing itself. It helps raise the oxygen level in the bloodstream to the point where the body can do what GOD has designed it to do – keep itself healthy and heal itself.

DR. ROBERT MacGREGOR , associate dean, Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto

“In Aerobic Oxygen we have a process to stabilize many oxygen molecules to a sodium chloride [table salt] molecule, and it will remain stable in that liquid form. How that is done is proprietary. People have reported the benefits. Aerobic Oxygen is not a drug. In order to state that our product cures or is helpful, we would have to have it classified as a drug, and we don’t want that. Too much oxygen would be a concern only if you were taking it in through the lungs. Aerobic Oxygen is in a stable form and does not produce free radical activity. In fact, it acts as a very efficient antioxidant. It will also attach itself to and destroy toxins that should not be in the body. Oxygen will destroy any type of anaerobic infectious bacteria.”
