Patient Alert

Recently the New York Attorney General has accused four of the Nation’s largest dietary supplement providers of selling fraudulent and possibly dangerous herbal supplements. The FDA targeted the national retailers Target, Walmart, GNC, and Walgreens for selling products that contained little if any of the herbs their labels claimed. In fact most of the products contained only fillers; some of which were allergen hazards such as gluten and powdered legumes and lacked any sort of warning label. Current events have highlighted the need for patients to purchase supplements though health care professionals who have access to safe, reliable sources of health products. You can read more here .

  9. Cold Intolerance:  Proven 95-99% effective, Solocarbon heaters increase core body temperature to alleviate lower body temperatures.

  12. Weight Loss:  A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories!

Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning.

A Silver (well, molybdenum) Bullet

Are you sensitive to automobile exhaust, smoke, perfume, or for that matter any commercialized or synthetic odor?

Do you hold your breath to get past the display of candles and avoid the cleaning products aisle altogether?

Do you experience headaches when you drink red wine with sulfates or get
close to a chlorinated pool?

Are one of those people who are overly sensitive to carbohydrates?

Neurotoxicity due to the inability to break down acetaldehydes may be a factor.

A neurotoxin is a substance that is toxic to the brain.   Acetaldehyde is a neurotoxin that comes from both our environment and from normal metabolism within our body.  It can become a problem if it accumulates abnormally. Excessive exposure can cause poor memory, lethargy, depression, irritability, and headache.

Acetaldehyde is very common. You can be exposed simply by breathing air.  Virtually anything with the scent is a source of acetaldehyde – room air deodorizers, candles, cleaners, perfumes and everything else that is scented.   Acetaldehyde is also an important part of food flavorings and is often added to milk products, baked goods, fruit juices, candy, desserts and soft drinks.

Our body produces acetaldehyde while processing an alcoholic beverage.  Intestinal Candida albicans is also a source of endogenous acetaldehyde. Candida albicans live by fermenting sugar to produce energy and the waste byproduct of this energy production is acetaldehyde.

In order to break down acetaldehyde, we need molybdenum, iron, niacinamide and riboflavin.  Most people have enough iron.  A molybdenum deficiency is often the reason many individuals suffer symptoms from even low level acetaldehyde exposure.

There is a fairly easy test to see if you would benefit from supplementing molybdenum.  If the inability to break down acetaldeydes is a factor for you, molybdenum may be your silver bullet.
