Common Sense Health Tip


This is a big weekend for Americans.  Have fun but don’t forget that holidays have stressors that can lead to health problems.  4th of July fireworks creates a unique health hazard beyond the risk of explosions and fire.  There is also danger in firework’s pollution.

fireworks

Fireworks are beautiful but dangerous.

A study at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration suggests that Fourth of July fireworks create particulates linked to health effects like coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, asthma attacks and even heart attack and stroke. It could cause early death in people with heart or lung disease.

So here are tips about what to watch for with strokes and if you see signs, what to do.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally.  He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

RECOGNIZING A STROKE

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple STRS   questions:

S.  Ask the individual to SMILE.

T.  Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) such as Chicken Soup.

R.  Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

S.  Ask him of her to STICK OUT THEIR TONGUE.

If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

Have a happy 4th of July holiday, but be careful with fireworks and perhaps stay away from the fumes.

Are We 189 Days From Viral Disaster?

Beware of the real deadly virus that could reach civilization at any time.

corona virus

Odds are you’ll be infected by the newest coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.  In fact you may have already had it and just did not know.   Most of us are infected by some form of coronavirus by the time we are adults.

One math based calculation at the Selenian website shows that the illness this virus creates will peak in about 200 days. That was 11 days ago so the odds are we have 189 days.  Here’s the chart at that site.

coronavirus

This compares fairly well with the peak of deaths for Spanish Flu in the US shown in this chart from Wikipedia.

coronavirus

The good news that corona viruses rarely kills. The disease (known as COVID-19) caused by the new coronavirus is estimated to have a fatality rate of less than 2 percent—exponentially lower than most outbreaks that make global news.   Compared to the H5N1 virus, or “avian flu” that has a death rate of 60%, the new coronavirus is chicken feed (excuse the pun).

However there is enormous danger in the panic, the loss of commerce and strain on the global health system.   If this new cornavirus virus is low threat then it should be a wake up call that protects us from some other far more deadly viruses or bacteria that can and will come along any time.

Many viruses, much more deadly than coronavirus, are lying just feet, even inches from the surface, kept alive by permafrost in Alaska, Canada and Siberia.

Permafrost has locked in deadly viruses, but according to University of Alaska Fairbanks, a study by 41 international scientists published in the journal “Nature”, warned of a phenomenon called Abrupt Permafrost Thaw, that threatens the climate, but even worse, has the potential to release lethal outbreaks.

corona virus

Nature is a weekly international journal publishing the finest peer-reviewed research in all fields of science

As the permafrost melts, these fatal agents could be spreading our way soon.

These savage infections are lying in Alaska’s permafrost that is melting much faster than science anticipated. Hillside slopes have liquefied. Roads have collapsed. The ground under the Nome airport thawed and a sinkhole 14 feet deep opened along a main roadway in the city.

Monitors of vasts tracts of Alaska’s interior that were permafrost covered by spruce forest are now lakes.

The fear is that Abrupt Permafrost Thaw can happen super-quickly, even in a matter of months, as ground sags and structures tilt.

According to University of Alaska research, permafrost is forecast to shrink substantially in the decades ahead.  One prediction is that the ground on Alaska’s North Slope will thaw as much as three quarters of a foot a year, reaching 65 feet down.

Imagine what will happen when an outbreak is truly virulent.

Government predictions are that 40 to 70 percent of people around the world will be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19. But many will have a mild form of the disease, or no symptoms at all.

The current coronavirus, technically know as SARS-CoV-2, that everyone is making such a fuss about is just one of a number of coronaviruses that commonly infect humans, causing colds.

In rare cases the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, known as COVID-19, can cause respiratory failure, but it seems to have a fatality rate of less than 2 percent—exponentially lower than most outbreaks that make global news.

This coronavirus outbreak however shows us that we live in a global world and an outbreak of any disease, anywhere, can spread to us all.

Governments can’t stop it and will even lie to us about the risk.  Supplies run short. Health workers fall ill.  There is no vaccine and commerce shuts down.  Stores run out of masks, medicines and cleansers.

There is almost no protection from even more ruthless viruses that have been deep frozen n the permafrost and are waiting.

Take for example the 2016 permafrost scare. A 12-year-old boy suddenly died and it was discovered that the cause was an anthrax infection.  At least twenty more infected people had to be hospitalized. This was caused by anthrax in a remote corner of Siberian tundra.

The infection came from a reindeer herd, that infected with anthrax, had died and was buried under a layer of permafrost.  A heatwave in the summer of 2016, melted enough of the permafrost for this hideous disease to spread in the local water, soil and food supply.

Permafrost is the perfect place for bacteria to remain alive for very long periods of time, even hundreds of thousands of years, so the melting ice can open a Pandora’s box of mortal diseases.

People and animals have been buried in permafrost for centuries and because permafrost is solid, it’s hard to dig deep graves. People and animals were buried close to the surface and many died from destructive diseases that were frozen, alive, lurking beneath the icy soil.

Deadly infectious agents are being unleashed.  For instance, scientists discovered fragments of the 1918 Spanish flu virus in corpses buried in mass graves in Alaska’s tundra. Smallpox and the bubonic plague are also likely buried in Siberia to name a few.

The thawing process is accelerating!

The problem magnified in June 2019 as weather change unleashed a heat wave of astonishing intensity in Alaska. Temperatures soared into the 80s and even 90s (Fahrenheit) in some parts of Alaska. The heat was unusual for how long it has lingered. Anchorage faced six consecutive days where temperatures exceeded 80 degrees, the longest stretch on record.

This heat helped ignite clusters of lightning-triggered wildfires that burned for months. They consumed over a million acres, more than half of all acreage burned in the United States in 2019.

A scientific study found that Canada was also affected. Parts of the Canadian Arctic are experiencing a rate of permafrost thaw six times the long-term average.

Our best safeguard from viral infections is not the government, not the medical system, not the commercial interest that might lead us astray for profit.  The strongest buffer against disease is our immune system and good natural health.

Here’s how to easily, quickly and inexpensively improve your natural health in three simple steps.

My names is Gary Scott and for over 50 years I have lived and worked, globally in Asia, Europe and South America as well as Smalltown USA.

My career started over five decades ago as an author and investment publisher.  I began writing about precious metals and multi currency portfolios many years before the establishment jumped on the bandwagon.  I was (and perhaps remain) one of the leading anti establishment economic publishers.

It might seem unusual that that I’m now sharing secrets about natural health, but the fact is that the early adapter investments we tracked not only interested open minded investors, but also attracted alternative healers as well.

As I took groups of investors around the world to look at investments in Hong Kong, Singapore, SE Asia, London, Isle of Man, Switzerland, Austria, Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Eastern Europe and Ecuador, we also found healers using indigenous modalities, acupuncture, infrared therapy, music, marma, panchakarma, essential oils, herbs and a host of nutritional, exercise and purification treatments.

That knowledge helped me and so many of my subscribers improve our health habits to such a degree that I wrote three reports describing the health secrets I have learned globally and used over the 50 years.

At age 73, I feel in the prime of my life, filled with energy.

I still work at what I enjoy every day and have temporarily taken a prescription, just once.  My last blood tests showed everything normal and my natural health MD said, after a cardio calcium scan, “It is unlikely you’ll ever have heart disease”.

I want to share these health secrets with you and have created a “no risk offer” that shares three reports on natural health ideas about nutrition, exercise and purification.  These reports show ways strengthen your immune system, increase your stamina, build energy and turn back your biological clock as much as 12 years.

For example for seven years Merri and I worked and lived part time with an Andean yatchak.  During that time we studied with many shamans to understand the longevity found in some areas that seemed otherwise poor.

For example, Dr. Alexander Leaf, a famous medical researcher from Harvard Medical School studied longevity in numerous mountainous areas on behalf of National Geographic Magazine.  This research looked at the people of Abkhasia in the Caucasus mountains south of Russia, those who lived in Vilcabamba in the Andes of South America and the Hunza, a mountainous valley in Pakistan.

These valleys had far less medical care and far fewer hospitals than most of us enjoy in the modern world, but the research showed that a much larger percentage of those populations lived 100 years and beyond, vital, active and in good health.

We found health secrets at our farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains as well and have gained enormously by integrating the ancient health wisdom of each into our lives.

cemetary

Family cemetery at Gary & Merri Scott’s Blue Ridge Farm.

These headstones show that the residents here lived to age 86, 91, 95, 100 years and one passed at 115 years of age.  The headstone says she was born in 1794 and left this world in 1909.  Imagine what she saw living during three centuries!

The secrets from their headstones are clear.  First, some places are healthier than others.   Second, lifestyle affects longevity more than quadruple bypasses, pacemakers, chemo, radiation, modern medicine and drugs.  These people were dirt poor mountain farmers and did not have health insurance, hospitals or regular checkups.  Some may have never seen a doctor.  Third, a simple, natural life can be filled with good health, energy, relaxation and strength.

Clean air, pure water and fresh food are important medicines!  These hardy mountain people worked hard and kept life simple.  Longevity was their reward.  Modern medicine does many wonderful things to manage illness.  But the imbalanced Western way of life does not do much that encourages wellness.

I share longevity secrets gained from five decades of global travel in my reports on how to have natural health.

Merri and I have searched out health secrets during our global journeys, because medical expenses are the biggest threat to our wealth.   These secrets are gleaned and distilled from months and years spent with Vaidyas and Pundits of India, Sufi masters, Chinese herbalists, Tibetan Monks and Andean Yatchaks, who specialize in one aspect of longevity and rejuvenation or another.  The secrets also come from a continuing research about people who are active but aged over 100.

We have put the secrets we have learned in three reports on how to have natural health.

You do not have to be a monk or even very disciplined to benefit from these secrets as they have been refined to work for modern people with modern lifestyles.

The reports do not aim to cure any specific ill but look at how to build stamina, vitality, energy and endurance so the body is better able to care for itself.   We share ideas we have learned and used to renew, rebuild and rejuvenate.

Here are a few of the longevity secrets in the reports.

corona virus

Build immunity with nutrition

Secret #1: Restrict your diet.  This first secret hardly seems hidden at all.  This is a simple, universally ignored reality.  Cut your caloric intake.  This is one of the few, the only scientifically proven factors that increases longevity.

Most of us cannot simply stop eating.  Hunger is too powerful a force!  We all need to learn how to change eating habits so we have plenty of beautiful food to eat, but less calories.  When we make the change we can eat more but still lose weight and reduce inches.

Don’t think this means you’ll be eating celery, lettuce, cardboard tasting crisp bread and such either.  Part of wellness is enjoying your food!  Learn to eat more effectively and discover good tasting, balanced, low calorie food.  Find out how to prepare this food so it’s more nourishing and filling and finally how to prepare it with herbs and spices that modulate blood sugar levels so hunger fades away.  There are many small, simple yet effective secrets that can make us crave good foods instead of bad.

An example is reducing calories with spice coordination.  When ginger, cinnamon and cloves are taken in correct amounts, at the right time, these spices crank your metabolism as they calm your appetite.  This is just one of numerous, simple health tricks.

The correct mix of protein, carbohydrates and fats for energy and weight loss is another example.   There are many easy-to-buy-at-the-supermarket foods that help.  For example, you can enjoy a breakfast of protein balanced pancakes with organic panella-canela syrup.  Every ingredient is inexpensive, easily obtainable yet this delicious sweet meal fills as it turns up the calorie burning process.

Eating secrets include seven easy ways to identify your body type so you can customize a diet and know when and what to eat in the right way.

Let me make one other point clear about food.  There are a lot of diets today that claim to be the one and only best way to lose weight.  Maybe they work or not.  Even those that do work may be inconvenient or expensive and do not work for everyone!  The nutritional plans in the reports are derived from diets created by mystic healers in many distant lands. The entire program has been modified for today’s lifestyles and tastes.  Practically all the food you learn about can be easily obtained.  Preparation, mixing, timing and method of eating are as important as the quality and type of food!

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

Another nutritional trick unveiled has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  During our wellness sessions we review how to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

Secret #2: have more than a routine.  Create ritual!  Those who live extra-ordinarily long lives seem to share this common trait.  Whatever they do, they do in moderation, in a very similar way and with great gusto.  For example, if they drink an ounce of whisky every day, at six o clock, they do not do this some days at five o clock some days and other days at eight.  They do not have a half ounce one day and two another.  They tend to have one ounce at six p.m. every day.  This instills discipline, keeps life simple (very important) and allows the body to get used to doing whatever it is it has to do.  Take Chris Mortensen one of the oldest documented men in the 1990s who at 113 said of his weekly cigar, “If you take my weekly cigar away from me, I am going to die”.  The anticipation and ritual of whatever pleasure he receives from this is far more life-giving than the stress.  The world’s oldest documented woman in the 1990s, Jeanne Clement, at age 122 drank cognac and ate a pound of chocolate a week (but never two pounds).

Secret #3: remain independent, challenged, active and needed.  One of the most important features found in isolated Ecuadorian valleys where people live long lives is that old age was revered.  Often people at age 100, even 110 are still active and working!  Max Zimmer of Los Angeles came to the US from Austria in 1911 with only a two dollar bill.  At age 103 he still had the same two-dollar bill and had built and still ran a multimillion-dollar business.

One medical doctor, who specializes in anti-aging, points out that most centenarians seldom spend much time with doctors.  When they finally get sick, they die quickly and with little expense.  They depend on themselves to remain healthy, not others.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

Good health is the most important asset.  Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

There are many ways to improve health naturally.

Gain Huge Health Benefits from the Amazing Hogberry

More than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear…Body Fat.

Studies showed that those who were most active have a 25% lower chance of developing cancer because reduced body fat is a possible pathway to lowering cancer risk.  Time Magazine has some good information on the relationship between exercise and reducing cancer.

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

Fortunately, there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.  I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat and cancer?  Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body.  The blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, and other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system.  Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them.  The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-soluble toxins into water-soluble).  This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways.  When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead.   These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation.  Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become nuerotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

The way to avoid this storage of deadly toxicity is to keep stress down, while digestion and detoxification pathways remain good.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat not primarily for weight loss, (though you will lose weight) but for purification, you can turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy.  Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins.  As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

Intermittent fasting is one way to get the body to burn fat.  There is a way of eating that helps reduce weight, improve energy and purify the body as it returns to a state of natural health.

This is a simple easy way to improve and restore feeling good, but works best when combined with better nutrition, moderate exercise and a purification program that helps make sure that the body is not overwhelmed with too much purification at once.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features one special tea so an intermittent fasting routine becomes doable and enjoyable.

The Key is in the Hogberry

Intermittent fasting is guaranteed to work, if you have even reasonable nutrition, moderate physical activity and stick with it.  The problem is in the sticking.  When the brain is hooked on metabolizing sugar it can be very demanding.   When we try going an extended period without a sugar, the brain will have a hissy fit and demand that we eat or drink something sweet or starchy or alcoholic.

Sticking through a fast just does not work when the brain pulls out its bag of tricks, from sweet whispers (just one chocolate won’t hurt- but it will!)  all the way to chills sweats and dizziness.   Intermittent fasting, without help, can require enormous discipline that most of us cannot maintain long enough.

I know, I tried intermittent fasting several times and failed.  Then I accidentally stumbled across the Secret of the Hogberry that not only stops hunger but more importantly speeds up the process of switching from sugar metabolism to fat metabolism AND assists in the purifying process.  Once I tried using this support for the pancreas (among other things),  intermittent fasting became satisfying and enjoyable.  I am passing 45 days in this routine, and the steady energy just gets better and better.  I am not minding the reduced weight and better fitting clothing either!

“The FAST Way to Better Health” explains how intermittent fasting is not real fasting.  One does not stop eating with an intermittent fast, not even for a day.  You learn why this is such a healthy way to lose weight and detoxify fat cells to reduce risks of cancer, heart disease diabetes and senility.

More important you learn how to feel better almost from the very first day.  Reduce stress, gain smooth steady energy without 10:30 am and 3:00 pm  droops. Find out how to avoid being hungry right after you eat and how to make the cravings for sweets and junk food all but disappear.
