Combining Remedies

Posted by Harry on 01/02/2008

Hello Ted, Thanks for your fantastic input and advice on
earthclinic.com. I have the following questions:

1. Can one take the AVC Baking Soda Remedy + Coconut Oil with Lecithin + Black Strap Molasses + Oil Pulling?

2. If you can do these 4 remedies, how should one go about it for the best result.

3. Is there an order in which you should take the remedies and at what times?

4. My aim is weight loss and increase in energy and fitness levels. Are these the correct remedies I have selected?

Thank you.

Dear Harry: The remedy can often be combined together of ACV, Baking soda, coconut oil, lecithin, oil pulling but this doesn't occur at the same time. The coconut oil is used in cooking, or added to the food. The lecithin is taken along with foods. The ACV plus Baking soda is taken twice a day. The oil pulling occurs between brushing. The black strap molasses should be dilute in a liter drinking water, so this won't effect the blood sugar spikes. Hence for best results, it is placed into the daily routine as mentioned.

The order is already mentioned, but ACV and baking soda, schedule might be moved, in case it causes drowsiness in some cases during the morning hours. Generally it won't but if it does, it can be taken in the early evening and late evening, which is still twice a day. It should also be noted that the 2 tablespoons of ACV and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water are minimum dose that can be started. However, if pH meter is available it may require 2 tablespoon of ACV plus 1/2 teaspoon, usually for men might require larger doses since larger build and weight is linked to larger dose.

The other addition to the remedy is some vitamin B complex (B50) and sodium ascorbate vitamin C 1000 is at least be taken, at least once or twice a week since people quite often is deficient in water soluble vitamins.

If the intention of weight loss is the objective, sometimes this won't achieve it, and for a good reason: certain dietary changes and eating habits are important too.

In some cases doing the above remedy may result in short term weight gain from increased in appetite. This has to occur because the body's chemistry is messed up and the body tries to deal with other problems, but weight may reduce later on.

Most weight loss program are quite dangerous if caloric restriction is only considered, which often results in vitamin B deficiency (in particular B1 Thiamine) and vitamin C, leading to heart attack. Many celebrities die this way too. Karen Carpenter (Stillman Diets resulted in anorexia bulimia from B3 deficiency), Paul Lynde Comedian (Weight Watchers, Thiamine B1 deficiency), Mammas and Papas, Maria Cass Elliot (don't know which diet program, but sodium/potassium imbalance and vitamin B deficiency), Laurel & Hardy - of Oliver Hardy (sodium/potassium imbalance, possible B deficiency).

As you can see in many cases the death is caused by water soluble vitamin deficiency and electrolyte imbalance.

My remedy for various sickness usually deals with electrolyte imbalance and pH, which is the most common sickness in Western diets, followed by water soluble vitamin supplements.

The newer weight loss program also have its share of death and sickness, Atkins (death from high cholesterol heart attacks), Hallelujah Diet (death from electrolyte imbalance, low sodium), Paleolithic Diet (no death yet, but kidney stones, some similarity to Atkins Diet), South Beach Diet (problems of related Alzheimer from use of polyunsaturated fats at high temperature cooking, metabolic acidosis, electrolyte and balanced amino acid issues) but I much rather refrain from going further to avoid conflicts, but I just wanted to say only that health prevention first and weight loss second.

If weight loss is given prime objective, provided, that health problems are handled where a deficiency of vitamin and electrolytes are already taken care of, then certain dietary habits should be considered before supplements are considered. Most of the post 1990 obesity are actually related to fructose (corn syrup), monosodium glutamate (without sufficient taurine to offset hypothalmic damage.

While the post 1980s obesity were more related to dietary chemical sugar substitute, such as aspartame, causing sugar control to be out of whack, by damaging the ability of the body to control blood sugar. And even more demeaning is the post 1960s which came from monosodium glutamate, fructose, Bisphenol-A estrogen found now in nearly all canned food and packaged foods leading to obesity.Hence the avoidance of those would help. Henceforth it is best to eat a very early dinner.

Assuming all those were considered, I believe the cause of obesity, after considering the above cause, is due to hormonal and amino acid imbalances. Just avoid the bad fats and sugars or high glycemic food. Protein, amino acids and certain hormone supplements seemed to work the best. For me it was DHEA 25 mg x 1 or 2 times, 100 mg alpha lipoic acid x 2 times a day, 2000 mg of taurine, 1 tablespoon of l-carnitine before exercise, 1-2 tablespoon of L-glutamine. The weight gain will be from the muscle mass, while fat portions will be reduce. So using weight as an objective is a poor measure if we don't consider muscle mass in relation to body fat.

Basically it is the body builders who actually solved most of the problem of obesity, quietly away from all the hype. Most of these supplements can be found in a body builders store and then some. I can't quite possibly covered everything, but lecithin is an important component that's not covered by these people, in relation to weight loss.
