Dr Smith Appointment Availability

My father (Dr. Hugh) has asked that I write this month's newsletter since he has been in the process of setting up his office in Mexico.

 

For those of you who haven't visited with me in the office, I would like to introduce myself. Many of you already know me as Dr Hugh's daughter, Justice Naccarato.

My dad has involved me with his work since I was 13 and we worked very closely together on a "couple" of projects during my middle school years.

I have probably seen life from a microscopic view longer than most kids see the world  "normally".

 

Several services have been added to my own repertoire; not the least of which is my shopping "tour." My husband Brian can tell you that I do know how to shop, much to his exasperation.

 

If I could only figure how to get shoe shopping into a nutritional shopping tour, I would be in heaven. Ah well...

 

For $20, I will guide up to ten clients on a shopping tour through the grocery store. The last tour, which included 9 ladies, was a hoot. Just imagine 10 women commandeering the aisles of a grocery store! I showed them how to read and decipher labels and buy healthy foods in a "regular" supermarket without having to visit a health food store, which can be expensive.

Depression or anxiety may be caused by lack of this in your diet

I am getting so disgusted with drug companies who continue to claim that depression and anxiety are incurable and are only "controllable" with (natch) drugs. The truth is there are common nutritional deficiencies that will cause these "aberrations."

One issue we see in increasing numbers in our office is amino acid deficiencies. People often look at us as though we are mind readers when we ask questions such as "Are you experiencing fatigue, malaise, heart fibrillations, anxieties, etc?" when, in fact, we are only observing the terrain.

 

 

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and are organic compounds that combine to form proteins. Amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life.

 

When proteins are digested or broken down, amino acids are left. The human body needs a number of amino acids to:

  • Break down food
  • Grow
  • Repair body tissue
  • Perform many other body functions

 

 

 

Amino acids are classified into three groups:

 

 

Essential Amino Acids

Essential amino acids cannot be made by the body. As a result, they must come from food.

The nine essential amino acids are: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine.

 

Nonessential amino acids

"Nonessential" means that our bodies produce an amino acid, even if we don't get it from the food we eat.

They include: alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, and glutamic acid.

 

Conditional amino acids

Conditional amino acids are usually not essential, except in times of illness and stress.

They include: arginine, cysteine, glutamine, tyrosine, glycine, ornithine, proline, and serine.

 

 

Examples of symptoms of Amino acid deficiencies

 

Depression and Mood Issues

Depression and mood swings are one of the most common symptoms of generalized amino acid deficiency. Complex brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine are some of the first compounds to suffer as a result of amino acid deficiency. This can very easily alter your state of mind, your attitude, mood, and your emotions in a negative way. We see this in an increasing number in our facility especially so with individuals who have digestive issues. Hello!?

 

Weak Immune System

The immune system is also one of the first systems to suffer as a result of an amino acid deficiency. Not only this; but an improper ratio of amino acids in the body can also cause a weakened immune system. This is the reason why protein is said to boost the immune system, because protein is comprised primarily of amino acids, which help to bring the immune system back to normal function. Elevate was developed within a very specific ratio to bring this back into line usually within 24-48 hours.

 

Inefficient Digestive System

Without the proper amino acids, the body has a difficult time producing enough digestive enzymes and other compounds that help the body to properly digest and absorb food. This doesn't occur with just digestive enzymes either. There are two types of enzymes used by the body, digestive and metabolic. And there are multiple thousands of different enzymes. So a deficiency in one or more amino acids can cause a deficiency in the body's enzyme supply.

 

Chronic Fatigue

In the absence of amino acids, the metabolism generally slows down quite a bit in an effort to conserve resources. This manifests itself in chronic fatigue and lack of energy. This makes sense logically because when running at peak efficiency, the metabolism uses a lot more chemicals than it does when running at minimum efficiency. So in order to conserve essential compounds, the body limits the number of reactions that occur and as a result, fatigue sets in.

 

 

Would it not be easier to address the actual issue rather than a symptom? Of course it would. But then Big Pharma couldn't sell you drugs if you actually addressed the issue. (Wouldn't that be a shame)? We are so sick and tired of watching people march through our office with amino acid deficiencies wondering why they must take increasing doses of anti depressants that it is actually verging on an epidemic. "But, my doctor says…" is such a disturbing comment, that we really are getting to the point of exasperation.

 

A simple observation will provide the information one needs to get off, stay off and FIX the problem. The primary reason Elevate, a natural amino acid supplement, was developed by my dad was to address these issues naturally without drugs. Usually, 30 days is sufficient and within 24-48 hours most people report a major positive response.

 

 

Symptoms of the use of antidepressants

 

In light of some of the recent "incidents" in the news (shootings, ricin, bombings and stabbings) we thought it apropos to mention that in the majority of incidents of shootings we can verify that the shooter was on some sort of anti depressant or had recently "cold turkied" on his medication. The interesting thing about this is that even the drug companies print black box warnings on these drugs because, among other things, they produce "suicidal thoughts" in those who are using these medications like ProzacTm, CelexaTm and PaxilTm to name a few.

To quote the label from Paxil:

 

"Antidepressants increased the risk compared to placebo of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term studies of major depressive disorder (MDD) and other psychiatric disorders. Anyone considering the use of PAXIL or any other antidepressant in a child, adolescent, or young adult must balance this risk with the clinical need. Short-term studies did not show an increase in the risk of suicidality with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults beyond age 24; there was a reduction in risk with antidepressants compared to placebo in adults aged 65 and older. Depression and certain other psychiatric disorders are themselves associated with increases in the risk of suicide. Patients of all ages who are started on antidepressant therapy should be monitored appropriately and observed closely for clinical worsening, suicidality, or unusual changes in behavior. Families and caregivers should be advised of the need for close observation and communication with the prescriber. PAXIL is not approved for use in pediatric patients. (See WARNINGS: Clinical Worsening and Suicide Risk, PRECAUTIONS: Information for Patients, and PRECAUTIONS: Pediatric Use.)"

 

Diseases from your pet

I know my dad has written extensively on the subject, but the following link may well be apropos for those suffering a multitude of symptoms.

 

While we do not agree with the "cures" listed in the article, we believe a 3 month initial cleanse with ParaClear with an anual month long follow-up will support the body's response to parasites.

 

See article here http://shine.yahoo.com/pets/11-diseases-pet-144600548.html

 

Also, it is helpful to feed your pet a daily regime of 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley or cilantro to help maintain their health which you can iether put in their water or food.

 

 

The best preventive is no pet in the house at all.

 

Just saying.

Disclaimer

Nothing in this newsletter should be construed as medical advice and, as always, you should consult with a physician concerning your health. If you are buying into the "let's treat every symptom now" routine, you are probably going to be disappointed. I have seen people leave a "natural care" practitioner's office with hundreds of dollars of supplements only to have nothing happen except a somewhat lighter bank account. As always, buyer beware and remember that natural healing is a process that can take some time. There are many factors that lead up to a chronic condition and, without seeing a client, it is often difficult to make hard and fast rules and solutions. So please understand that we will try to give you the answer with the available information you supply. Please address your queries to hugh@biocytonics.com or visit our continually updated website at biocytonics.com
