MAITAKE MUSHROOM: The ‘Mighty Mushroom’ That Boosts Immunity, Kills Cancer & Reduces Diabetes.

MAITAKE MUSHROOM: The ‘Mighty Mushroom’ that Boosts Immunity, Kills Cancer & Reduces Diabetes.

If you’ve ever suffered from poor immunity, frequent colds, flu and other infections; you take ages to get over an illness or you’re worried about the prevalence of cancer, heart disease and diabetes in your family – then this is an important blog post for you to read and take action on!

Here’s why . . .

If you don’t do anything, it tends to get worse!

At a time in history when these diseases are affecting more and more people, it’s safe to say we all should be adding as many disease-fighting substances to our arsenal as possible.

Maitake is one of the most promising medicinal mushrooms

Coenzyme Q10: The Body’s Spark Plug

 

Many of us know very little about the goings on inside our cars – we turn the key and the engine starts, right? Are you aware that while there are many important aspects to having a smooth running engine, a primary condition to having your car start when you turn the key is having good clean spark plugs? Just as a car can’t run without an initial spark, without adequate ‘spark’ the human body just can’t get going either. When we are running short of important ingredients our body gets sluggish and is hard to get going.

Well if they are so important, I have a question to ask: When was the last time you looked after the spark plugs in your body? Where are these ‘spark plugs’ you may be asking.

 “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.”

According to a NZ research based company “Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) could be considered the spark plug of life due to its key role in energy production.” How about that! Dr. Karl Folkers (1906 – 1997) left a legacy of over 66 years of outstanding research in organic and biological chemistry. He believed that a 25% deficiency in the body’s CoQ10 levels is enough to cause illness, while a deficiency of 75% or more can lead to death.  Although coenzyme Q10 is normally produced by the human body, medical institutes such as the Mayo Clinic recommend increasing the dietary intake of CoQ10 (depending on the cause of the CoQ10 deficiency), along with supplementation of it and the other vitamins and minerals needed to produce or utilize CoQ10.

Bruce Ames, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of California, Berkeley, also presents a hypothesis that implies micronutrient deficiency may eventually deteriorate the quality of whole human cell health. A portion of Professor Ames’ abstract reads as follows:

Inadequate dietary intakes of vitamins and minerals are widespread, most likely due to excessive consumption of energy-rich, micronutrient-poor, refined food. Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay. Deficiencies in many micronutrients cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks, in cultured human cells or in vivo. Some of these deficiencies also cause mitochondrial decay with oxidant leakage and cellular aging and are associated with late onset diseases such as cancer.

Chris Woollams: Alternative Cancer Treatments Educator

Chris Woollams & Catherine’s Butterfly Effect

There is a theory that the effects of a butterfly in Hawaii flapping its wings can be felt in London.

According to Chris Woollams (pictured here with his wife, Amphorn), his daughter Catherine was just such a butterfly. And as with the ripple effect, the impact of her life continues around the world even today. At the age of 22, she had it all. Intelligence, good looks, a degree from Bristol, a great boyfriend and a job at Vogue. And then suddenly, a terminal brain tumour.

Chris Woollams’ daughter was the catalyst behind his quest and self-determined role as a leading cancer-educator.  Yes, he made a fortune in advertising and now has homes around the world in Thailand, the south of France and Kent. But he doesn’t spend a lot of time hanging out on beaches drinking rum and coke. He’s more likely to be writing or speaking on alternative ways to beat cancer.

You see, Chris’ life took an unexpected turn  in 2001 when his daughter Catherine (then 22) developed a brain tumour. And yet, despite all the hype and noise, the marketing and mystique, WHO says 70 percent of cancers are preventable! Read More

What’s Killing Our Children?

In June 2006, there were 4 million children aged under 15 years in Australia, representing one-fifth (19%) of the total population (ABS 2006a). In 2004-05, 41% of children aged under 15 years had a long-term health condition compared with 44% in 2001 (ABS 2006 & ABS 2002). That’s a 3% decrease in just three years – things are on the improve. Or are they?

In fact issues like SIDS reduced dramatically, but others were still on the increase. The Health & Welfare Institute and other organisations looked at the following emerging health concerns in Australian children:

  • Asthma – more on asthma here
  • Type 1 diabetes – more on type 2 diabetes here
  • Cancer – more on children’s cancer here
  • Congenital heart defects – more on heart health here
  • Digestive disturbances in children – more on that here
  • And many others including, mental health issues, disability, and so on. This list is really endless.

So lets look into what this means. As a parent myself, I have seen a struggling health system failing us in providing adequate health improvement for our children, and knowing what I knew that could make a difference, I determined to do what I could about it. But what are parents actually dealing with today? Read More
