High Brix

Posted by Tom (La Mesa, CA) on 06/14/2006

I have been watching my ph level for several weeks and can control it from about 6.4 to 6.7. But my BRIX reading is very high, 4 to 6. I eat a fairly clean diet I believe. I take ACV almost every other day and I take fulvic acid every other day. What would cause this problem?

Dear Tom: Aaah yes! Brix or your urinary sugar level is indeed difficult to control! The older you get, the higher it becomes. It is not as easy as controlling your pH! Those who know the art, will keep it a secret. I have my brix normal now and then usually through sheer luck of eating so many things and trying so many things and suddenly realized some few of those did reduced my Brix to near normal! I will tell you an easy and difficult way to reduce your sugar quickly. First is the easy way, but not practical:

Do a sprint or somewhat strenuous short exercise. Body builders and athletes have trouble opposite from us common folks. They have low blood sugar because of this strenous burst of short term exercise. Exercise enough, but do not overdo that you get muscle pain. Lactic buildup is not good for you, biochemically speaking!

Now the more difficult way, but more practical, is the use of certain supplements. Take granulated lecithin one tablespoon a day, everyday. My mother managed to get her sugar under control after decades of fighting with diabetes just taking this and the other one.....

DHEA. This will help increase the body's insulin sensitivity and followed by reduced weight. For men, I would think 25 mg/day is a proper dose. For women, half of this is sufficient.

Those are the main ones that I know really worked well for me. The other ones that do help are chromium and vanadium supplements and magnesium and zinc. Vanillin or vanilla extract for some reason I can't explain besides its antioxidant capacity seems to help too, but not as consistently as DHEA or lecithin. Now while we speak of powerful supplements for insulin sensitivity, you should consider taking before going to sleep some L-glutamine or Creatine monohydrate, as they too restore the body's sugar level to normal also.

Of course these recommendation should reduce your body's sugar by 1/2 and your figure should be around 2-3.5 which is quite acceptable if the previous figure was 6.

Now some extra tips: for some reason that I will explain later, sometimes my body's sugar return to normal much quicker and stayed there almost permanently, if I do some chelation by removing heavy metals for four weeks in a row. Basically my chelation therapy is simple: 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid + 1/4 teaspoon of malic acid + 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda + 1/8 teaspoon of disodium EDTA, taken twice a day or once a day, but it is absolutely important you must take it before bedtime at least. If you are a stickler regimen for chelation then take it one more in the morning ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. Do not eat at least 1.5-2 hours after you take this. This is done to avoid diarrhea or loose stools. Now why does this work? Simple, scientist for ages can make a rat diabetic by simply injecting a chemical, streptozotocin. This chemical destroys the pancreas. Of course, free heavy metals and inflammation of pancreas can do the same thing. By removing the inflammation and heavy metals, it restores your body's pancreas to normal. Thus reversing your body's ability to produce insulin, thereby reducing your blood sugar. This is just an extra tip. Be serious about controlling your urinary sugar because the main cause of aging is due to cross linking of sugar AND proteins, which result in skin loosing its elasticity by what scientists call "Maillard Reaction".

Don't try to complain to me about this if you cannot reach the magic Brix of 1.5, I haven't find it yet, because supplements require money, which of course, I can't afford to try, not that I am unwilling to try!
