New Traffic Light System for Borrelia [Lyme] Activity 

In addition to the traditional ELISA and Immunoblot tests, which examine various kinds of antibodies in patients’ serums, the BCA-clinic in Augsburg, Germany, started using a Lyme test called EliSpot years ago. In contrast to ELISA and Immunoblot, EliSpot detects Borrelia infections and various co-infections on a cellular level. Now the BCA-clinic, which specializes in the Lyme disease and its co-infections, starts offering a new and improved Lyme test for the first time, which is an enhanced version of EliSpot. Autoimmun Diagnostika (AID) GmbH in Strassberg, Germany has developed this so-called “LymeSpot Revised” test for Borrelia and its co-infections. It is able to differentiate between an active (specific effector cells) and a latent (specific memory cells) infection.

InfectoLab

While “EliSpot” is used for Lyme testing, it focuses on the production of γ-interferon, whereas “LymeSpot Revised” also detects cytokine IL-2. Using LymeSpot's 'traffic light' principle, an active infection (mainly the effector cells) is indicated by a high number of green coloured cells. When this is the case, the infection needs to be treated. If the ratio between y-interferon and interleukin-2 is inverted, the disease is more likely to be at a latent stage, which is then indicated by a red coloration of the cells (mainly memory cells). In this case, an anti-infective treatment would not be applicable. If the memory cells and effector cells are both present, indicated by red and green in balance, then both the infection and the inflammation are still present. In this case, the therapy will be based on the clinical profile of the patient.

Results RNA - How do I safely and easily remove Heavy Metals? 

Heavy Metals have long been recognised to cause serious long-term harm to human health. Effects include damage to the immune system, central nervous system and heart. Inorganic mercury can also damage the kidneys. We are exposed to mercury is mainly through pollution in the air (coal burning is responsible for a great deal of this), eating fish and the release of inorganic mercury from amalgam fillings. The developing brains of foetuses and young children are especially vulnerable. Children exposed to methyl mercury while they are in the womb can have impacts to their:

  • Cognitive thinking;
  • Memory;
  • Attention;
  • Language;
  • Fine motor skills;
  • Visual spatial skills.

Results RNA

Removing heavy metals has always been a challenge often requiring expensive treatments such as intravenous DMPS or EDTA. These also remove valuable nutrients from the body and have to be replaced or other problems can arise. Others use nutritionals including chlorella and coriander; these can redeposit the metals in other places in the body, such as the brain or other essential organs. There is also very little data on actually how effective these are in helping the body to remove the metals. Fortunately, there is solution to this called - ACZ Nano - a natural zeolite in liquid form, independently proven results.

ACZ Nano Extra Strength has been developed especially for heavy metal detoxification. ACZ Nano is one of the best and safest chelators available. This natural zeolite(a type of volcanic ash) has a cage-like structure that irreversibly binds heavy metals and removes them via the urinary system. Other chelators can actually mobilize the metals and then redeposit them to other parts of the body, ACZ will not do this. It also has the highest affinity for the heaviest elements, so will preferentially bind Mercury before, for example, Aluminium and because it has been pre-treated with Ca, K and Mg, it will replace the toxic metal with one that the body actually requires. Independently proven to be able to increase urinary output of Mercury by over a 1000 times. It is also been shown to remove volatile organic compounds like PCP’s and DDT as well as fluorine and chlorine.

For the safest, most effective, proven detoxification - choose Results RNA.

Imagier - Specialist Esoteric Publisher

A small family-run publishing company based in the UK dedicated to making available contemporary and past work about the streams of esoteric thought and spirituality that have served over as sources of inspiration in the formation and evolution of much of Western culture and civilisation.

Imagier - Specialist Esoteric Publisher

Imagier was created in 2008 for the purpose of making available past and new work expressing the depth and richness of indigenous esoteric Christian spirituality. Working with authors who have dedicated their lives to the subjects they write about, Imagier publishes books designed to inform the reader about the subject matter rather than baffle them with specialized rhetoric. Thus far, Imagier have published sixteen titles with more in the pipeline.

One fascinating title printed by Imagier is Ecclesiastica Celtica by Sabine Baring-Gould [1834-1924] presents the reader with an alternative and captivating history of the primitive Church in pre-Saxon Britain to the accepted belief that Christianity began in these islands either with Patrick in the mid-fifth century, or by Augustine at the end of the sixth. Baring-Gould describes a nascent Church very different in character to the Church we see today. He introduces the reader to a religious spirit dedicated to the contemplative life, evolving within a well-ordered Romano-British society, a society devastated from the beginning of the fifth century onward by the political turmoil and internecine conflicts of a collapsing Roman Empire, exacerbated by the frequent predatory incursions of the Scots and Pictish raiders from the West (Ireland) and the North (Scotland), and, Saxon invaders from mainland Europe. He relates how the ancient British Church and its people adapted and survived against extraordinary and overwhelming odds. It is a marvellous and heroic epic spanning many generations - an extraordinary read.

Another title, Gnosticism & Gnosis by RA Gilbert is a clear and concise overview of the phenomenon of ‘Gnosticism’, a label which includes a broad spectrum of strange, quasi-Christian belief systems that arose within and around the early Christian Church, challenging both its orthodoxy and its existence. In this introduction, the author traces its origins in Egypt and the Middle East; setting out the variety of its forms and beliefs from surviving gnostic texts; and surveying the complex history of the early gnostic schools during the Roman era and beyond, down to the pervasive presence of gnostic ideas at the present day.

The Pilgrimage is an adventure that leads the reader into a realm not unlike the Arthurian world of Chretien de Troyes. In his previous book, The Rose Priory Dialogues the author leads the reader in a study of the interior world of the soul through the teachings of an ancient living tradition, so in this novel the author guides the reader into the imagery and symbolism of myth and allegory.

Recognize Yourself Beauty Despite Cancer

Beautiful colour photographs accompany the majority of the book's 144 pages, and feature inspirational real-life women currently affected by cancer. In total 12 real-life models were used = all in various stages of recovery and treatment, ranging in age from 21-year-old Antonia Young, to 68-year-old Evelyn Gaff.

Author Jennifer Young said: “'Women don’t stop being women when they are diagnosed with cancer. I often find myself saying this as a way of explaining why I founded www.beautydespitecancer.co.uk  which has ultimately lead on to writing this book. I wanted to help readers put aside the concerns that they might have about their changing appearance. If they are worried about how best to dress their new body shape, for example; ditto if they to know how to choose the skincare for their changed skin. Learn how to get the most from their make-up, what to look for in a wig and how to look after it. And it’s not all about how looks - we have some great advice from health professionals for readers about how to recognize themselves and deal with all that are going through.”

About Jennifer Young

With a BSc(Hons) in biology and two postgraduate qualifications in health-related fields, Jennifer Young is an experienced microbiologist, a nutritional therapist, an associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine, and a qualified aromatherapist, beauty therapist and product formulator. She has taught internationally and been active in medical research, and been accepted by the Courts as an expert witness for occupational health cases. Jennifer was invited into the world of cancer support when some of the ladies at her local NHS hospital asked her to work with them and create specialist skincare and cosmetics for those going through treatment. When Jennifer first entered the chemo ward, she, like many others, had no idea that many cancer patients suffered from skin- and nail-related side effects of treatment. When she discovered the extra burdens suffered by cancer patients, she was determined to help.

Natural Seaweed Pick Me Up Pasta

Pasta has become public enemy number one over the last few years as diets like the Paleo Diet and GI Diet suggest cutting it out. An unusual new form of spaghetti could change people’s views however and put a smile on your face in more ways than one.

Natural Seaweed Pick Me Up Pasta

Atlantic Kitchen’s ‘Sea Spaghetti’ has a subtle mild taste that perfectly complements traditional pasta or noodle dishes, and like its Italian counterpart is simply cooked in simmering water. Unlike everyday pasta however, Sea Spaghetti has some surprising benefits…

Made from all natural seaweed harvested from the Atlantic, it is easy to see why products like this have become popular with everyone from Victoria Beckham to Heston Blumenthal. Not only is the seaweed jam packed full of important vitamins and minerals, but it’s an incredible source of protein, which helps you stay feeling fuller for longer and less likely to snack. It’s also a natural source of a chemical called sodium alginate, which, according to a study carried out at Newcastle University1, can reduce fat intake by up to 75%. On top of this, Atlantic Kitchen’s seaweed pasta has just 178 calories per 100g of pasta, less than half that of normal pasta. It’s not just the fact that the pasta can help you lose weight that will have you smiling however, it’s also an incredibly rich source of iodine.

Iodine is an extremely important nutrient for our mental wellbeing and intellect, but many people in the UK are deficient in it; with up to two thirds of British women and girls thought to have lower than ideal levels. According to the World Health Organisation, iodine deficiency is the biggest global cause of mental impairment and they recommend a daily of 150 micrograms of iodine. Atlantic Kitchen’s Spaghetti provides one of the easiest ways to get an iodine hit, with one serving contains a whopping 1825 mcg.

Ultimately though spaghetti is a food and there’s no point stocking up on seaweed spaghetti if you don’t enjoy its taste. Thankfully Atlantic Kitchen Spaghetti’s subtle flavour with a small splash of olive oil is hard to beat.

Further Information

Atlantic Kitchen’s range of seaweed products also includes a dried Dulse Seaweed, whose smoky flavour and rich purple colour make it a great addition to salads, and Wakame Seaweed, the ‘spinach of the sea’. All three products are available through the exciting new one-stop shop for natural and organic products www.natreco.com

In addition, each mudra entry is enhanced with an accompanying chant, meditation, pranayama, asana, visualization, or personal report about the mudra's benefits.

The book then ends with a series of highly useful mudra routines for a range of health issues, both physical and emotional - from anxiety and chronic fatigue to arthritis and headaches. There’s genuinely something for everyone in this beautiful new book on the health-enhancing art of mudras.

Apricots from God

It's been about 18 years and still the Apricot Seed theory holds true! The vitamin B-17 theory has held true over the last 18 years of our company selling the apricot seeds. There still to this day, has not been even one person that has called this office claiming that they still developed cancer despite eating the apricot seeds or daily B17 consumption over the years.

Apricots from God

We have kept the same phone numbers, same company name and the same website, running or hiding nowhere. This information is not on CNN news, it's not on the front page of the paper nor in main stream media. And it's definitely not part of conventional medicine. The reasons are simple yet complex, obvious yet perfectly hidden however, the answer to cancer known....Read more at our website to further understand as it just has to become common knowledge, spread from person to person in order to end this pervading killer fungus.

Relaxing Grass - Natur Boutique’s Organic Lemon Grass Tea

Whilst the smell of freshly cut grass often stirs up memories of relaxing summer holidays and Bob Marley liked to chill-out with ‘grass’, researchers have recently discovered that lemongrass could hold the key to relieving anxiety and soothing away stress…

Relaxing Grass - Natur Boutique’s Organic Lemon Grass Tea

In a recent study[1] scientists looked at the effect in 40 individuals of inhaling the aroma of lemongrass, as compared to control aromas of either tea tree oil or distilled water. Immediately after the inhaling the aromas the participants had to do a video monitored test, designed to create anxiety. The scientists measured psychological parameters, such as feelings of tension, and physiological ones, such as heart rate, before, during and after the test.

They found that those people who had inhaled the lemongrass aroma had reduced anxiety and tension levels before the test, compared to the control groups, and whilst their levels of anxiety increased during the test they fell quicker than control groups after the test had finished.

So as winter closes in and, for many, stress levels begin to rise why not indulge in a calming cuppa of lemongrass tea?

Natur Boutique’s Organic Lemon Grass Tea

Natur Boutique, experts in herbal tea blends, ensure only the highest quality organic lemongrass, grown without pesticides or fertilizers, is picked for their tea. With only one natural ingredient, and no fillers or additives, you can be assured that by drinking their tea both your body and the environment are getting the maximum benefits every time you sip their delicious drink. So sit back, relax and enjoy this zesty tea with its subtle citrus flavours of lemongrass.

    Coffee Consumption and Irregular Heartbeat No Link

    There is no association between coffee consumption and an increased risk of atrial fibrillation, according to research published in the open access journal BMC Medicine. The research, the largest study of its kind, includes a meta-analysis of four other studies, involving nearly 250,000 individuals over the course of 12 years. Moderate coffee consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease and stroke. Its association with atrial fibrillation (AF), a heart condition causing an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate, has been unclear. This lack of association was confirmed in a follow-up meta-analysis that included the present two cohorts and four other prospective studies, giving a total of 10,406 cases of AF diagnosed amongst 248,910 individuals.

    DNA Sequencing Improves Treatment of Urinary Infections

    Urinary tract infections (UTIs) could be treated more quickly and efficiently using a DNA sequencing device the size of a USB stick according to research from the University of East Anglia. Researchers used a new device called the MinION to perform nanopore sequencing to characterize bacteria from urine samples four times more quickly than using traditional methods of culturing bacteria. The new method can also detect antibiotic resistance - allowing patients to be treated more effectively and improving stewardship of diminishing antibiotic reserves.

    Less Sugar, More Rainforest

    It has been hard to avoid the negative press around soft drinks recently, as the like of Coca-Cola and Red Bull have been heavily criticised about the amount of sugar they contain. Coconut water has become the darling of the drinks’ aisle with its claimed benefits. Leading brands add fructose to their drinks to make them sweeter, meaning 100ml contains 5g of sugar, just over a teaspoon. Newcomer Buko Organic Coconut Water, do things a bit differently. They use young organic coconuts, grown without fertilizers or pesticides, which gives their drink a purer more natural taste, which means there is no need to add sugar.

    Specific Fatty Acids May Worsen Crohn’s Disease

    Research has suggested that omega-3 fatty acids, abundant in fish oils, can relieve inflammation in Crohn’s disease, but a new study, using software developed by Duke University Scientists, hints that we should be paying closer attention to what the other omegas, namely omega-6 and omega-7 are doing to improve or worsen the disease. Published in September 2015 in Genome Biology, the study relied on new software for Researchers that identifies connections between seemingly unrelated human diseases and traits through the tiny, risk-conferring genetic variations they have in common. In the new study, Researchers identified genetic overlaps between palmitoleic acid, a type of omega-7 fatty acid and Crohn’s with a software tool they call CPAG.
