Welcome Back To Myself

I can't believe it has been 4 years since I last posted on my blog. So the title of this one is Welcome Back to Myself!!! Every week I receive good news from clients (which I prefer to use the word clients vs. patients) and this week, one of my female clients, who has been in our Clinical Nutrition Therapy for 6 months (4/15) informed me that at her medical check-up, her physician told her she no longer had any pancreatic cysts or liver lesions!!! That is right just 6 months and see what the body can accomplish when we test for the nutrients that the cells are lacking, provide these nutrients in a therapeutic whole food clinical formulation and detoxify the cells of chemicals and other toxic substances -- then the body can heal itself of any health challenge, minor or major!!!!

SEVEN CAUSES OF ADD/ADHD

Unknown Medical Causes Are Well-Known Clinical Nutrition Causes!


"Does your little Johnny (or Mary) remind you of the Energizer Bunny? He keeps going and going and going!

Does he throw violent temper tantrums?
Have a short attention span?
Show an inability to sit still or concentrate?
Have a hostile attitude?”

Maybe Johnny Is Just Being A Kid -
Testing The Limits Of Authority or Having a Bad Day?

Or

Maybe he's suffering from what is today referred to as Attention Deficient Disorder or Attention Deficient Hyperactive Disorder (ADD/ADHD).

Or Just Maybe

...Unknown Medical Causes Are Well-Known Clinical Nutrition Causes!

It is a scientific fact that a medical diagnosis for ADD is based upon the patient’s symptoms alone as there is no scientific psychological testing for ADD in itself, though there is scientific proof for “physical” causes that produce the psychological symptoms of ADD. There are seven causes for the symptoms of ADD, which are often undetected through medical testing and examination, primarily because a medical interpretation of laboratory and other medical testing does not identify most of these causes, and those that can be identified, physicians do not associate with these causes of the symptoms of ADD.

Ritalin and other ADD drugs will never cure ADD.

They will, however, cause drug addiction and damage to brain cells and tissue. The result is brain damage, which is worse than the symptoms of ADD.

This article reports on each of the seven causes of ADD, which can be safely and effectively corrected through three different non-medical therapies! One or more therapy may be needed, depending upon your specific causes.

To learn what these three therapies are, you may read the complete article, at the following web address. Scroll down to the "Document Library" for a list of articles.

Then click on the "Mental Health" tab in the left-column Table of Contents to review the "Marketing of Madness" videos. You will be shocked and angry at this strategic marketing campaign of the psychiatric and pharmaceutical industries. Spread the word!! We are all at risk if the truth is not known.

Congratulations Cousin Prince William & his lovely bride, Catherine

What a lovely wedding and best wishes to both of you. Welcome Catherine to the family! I am so blessed that Cousin William and Catherine chose my father, Gene's birthday, April 29th, for their wedding date. Prince William and I both share a loss, he his mother and my cousin Princess Diana and I, my father. So having his wedding day on April 29th has an additional and very special meaning to me.

Yes, I am an American and Princess Diana and Princes William and Harry are my cousins in England!

Would you like to hear some history on my family?

Okay, Let's go back to 1600 in Surrey, England. With part of the Adams' Family accompanying him, Henry Adams sailed to America on board his son, Captain John Adams' ship. From this blood line, came my grandfather Samuel Adams, the Father of the American Revolution of 1776, and Uncle, President John Adams and Cousin, President John Quincy Adams, respectively.

Princess Diana, hence Princes William and Harry, are descendants of Henry Adams from those in the Adams family who chose to stay in England, and I and my son, Matthew "Matt," are descendants from Henry Adams, who came to America.

When Princess Diana died, bless her, and the media was flooded with probably every picture that had ever been taken of her, William and Harry up to that date, I purchased a few of the 'album' style magazines on her life. It was amazing the number of photos of Diana, that looked either like me when I was her age (I am 10 years her Senior), or looked like two of my four sisters, Cindy or Terri. We three are the older of the five, starting with me, Cindy, and then Terri. Additionally, some pictures of William looked like my son, Matt and Cindy's son, Jeff.

I am delighted that William has honored his mother's wise words of marrying the woman he loves, who was his best friend first, and passing to Catherine, as her engagement ring, the ring Diana left him.

I am very proud of William and Catherine. They have established a solid foundation for a life-long, fulfilling, loving and happy life together, and I am delighted to celebrate this special day in honor of you both, in honor of Diana, and the excellent mother she was to William and Harry, which is so evident by William courtship and marriage to Catherine "Kate" Middleton and in honor of my father, Everett Eugene Ferguson. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Migraines for 30 Yrs & Diarrhea for 15 Yrs Gone - Thanks To Dr. Smith

Hi,
Surfing the internet is like receiving a wrapped gift, you never know what wonderful surprises you find in it. I serendipitously came across this "Review" of my business services posted anonymously by one of my patients in an online business directory, who had posted information about my business, www.AdvancedClinicalNutrition.com. This is what this patient shared in her review comments and it certainly demonstrates the healing power of clinical nutrition and naturopathic therapy.

MIGRAINES 30 YEARS & DIARRHEA 15 YEARS GONE!!!

“I had severe migraines for 30 years and chronic diarrhea for 15 years. Dr. Smith did nutritional testing and put me on whole food supplements. Within 6 months I got rid of the diarrhea. Within 3 months I started noticing the migraines were getting less frequent. Within a year I no longer had migraines. It is now 4, nearly 5 years later and the only headaches I have are my husband and kids and I can't remember the last time I had diarrhea!!!!!

SIX NEW E-BOOKS BY DR. DONNA

To update you on what has been consuming my time since the new year started, I have written six (6) new e-books. Actually, I have completed five of them and listed them below for your review and am currently near completion of the sixth e-book. Hence, one of the reasons this has been my first blog for the year.

HEALTH CHEST - 100 REMEDIES FOR "ACUTE" SYMPTOMS THAT REALLY WORK!

The sixth e-book is called "Health Chest" with a sub-titled, "Updating Your Medicine Chest to a Health Chest." In medicine, they have a Physician's Desk Reference (PDR) on drugs for acute symptoms, so you can think of my "Health Chest" as a Nutritional and Naturopathic Desk Reference (NNDR) of 100 Remedies for acute symptoms that have been used safely and effectively by myself, personally, my family and I have been professionally recommending them to my patients/clients -- some as far back as when I first opened my business 30 years ago in November 1981.

WHAT ARE ACUTE SYMPTOMS?

Acute Symptoms are sudden, unexpected symptoms, such as when you get the flu, wake up with a toothache, burn yourself, etc. Health Chest also includes herbal first-aide for fast and effective help when you injure yourself or, for example, when bitten by insects, mosquitoes, a bee, wasp or spider.

HEALTH CHEST INCLUDES WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF A HEART ATTACK - GUN SHOT WOUND!

Health Chest also includes what to do if you ever found yourself having or with someone who is having a "heart attack" that could literally save a person's life while waiting for Emergency Medical Assistance. Living in Texas, where people like to hunt, my book includes information about which herbs to use as a poultice if wounded from a gun shot, or you have any skin sore, boil or have cut yourself. A poultice is mixing powder and liquid herbs together to make a paste, then applying this on the injured or infected skin, bandaging it, and adding new poultice daily until healed.

FACE TUMOR HEALED - HEALTH CHEST REMEDIES WORK FOR EVERYONE - EVEN ANIMALS!

For example, one of my clients contacted me about a week ago, her beloved dog of 11 years is dying of cancer, which she was unaware of until Yaga had a tumor appear on his face, which burst, bleed profusely and left a big hole (sore). The hole/sore on his face had been there for weeks and was not healing. She contacted me for what to do and I recommended my Basic Herbal Poultice. Within 24 hours, new skin was growing and closing the hole and the sore was healing. Within three days it was 50% healed, and in less than a week, it was completely healed. Yes, the information in my Health Chest e-book works for adults, children, infants, and animals, too.

So far my book is 150 pages and it should be completed by the end of April or first week of May, 2011.

Once done it will be posted on the "E-Books by Dr. Smith" web page in my website. These Remedies Really Work! In their effectiveness they are worth their weight in Gold because they are priceless and timeless. As they say, you can take this educational information "to the Bank." It is that reliable! No Side Effects! And the over-all health of your body is even better after using them than it was before.

Dangers and Alternatives to Root Canals, Implants and Filling Cavities

This is an introductory article on holistic dentistry and the dangers and healthier alternatives for three standard dental procedures performed by traditional dentists – Root Canals, Implants and Mercury/Amalgam Fillings. I was prompted to write this from a request by Graphic Artist, Cindy Whittaker. Cindy posted the following question on the “Frustrations in Improving Your Health – Survey “ I created that Facebook Profile and Group to survey “What are the biggest challenges and frustrations the public is having improving their health, safely and effectively, without drugs?

"Hi Dr. Smith! I have a dental question for you. You helped me avoid having a root canal (thank you thank you!), so now I wanted to know if you can also help, if I think I have a cavity. I see a little black dot on the tooth so I think it's just starting. I think I remember you saying once that when you need to go to the dentist, you have a protocol that will help minimize the effects of their treatment on the body. So I'm not sure if this is something you can eliminate or just help with, if I do have to go to the dentist. Thanks Dr. Smith!"

Because this is an introduction and not written to provide all the details you will need, in the closing, I will be sharing how you may obtain further information that will provide more detailed holistic dental education, step by step practical instructions and applications, and contact information for the holistic dentists I recommend to my clients.

You may ask, what does the term holistic mean? Holistic or wholistic refers to the whole person, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In references to healthcare, though a holistic health care practice may provide services to benefits all four aspects of the human being, it generally means that whatever the specialized field of practice, whether dentistry, medicine, etc., treatments first “do no harm” and consider its affect on the whole body, not just the treatment of the one area or part of the body the health care service specializes in.

For example, medicine today is so specialized (segregated) that the treatment of an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Doctor, for example, generally, gives no consideration to the adverse affects of its treatment on other parts of the body, e.g., how the ENT treatment may adversely affect the patient’s liver, stomach or the diagnosis or treatment of the Gastroenterologist.


ROOT CANAL COMPLICATIONS AND DANGERS

To answer Cindy’s question, first, let me share about Root Canals. It is challenging for a dentist to "see" all the infection to remove it even if the dentist uses two magnifying glasses, which no dentist should do this procedure using just one. However, even using two, the dentist still may not be able to "see" all of the infection to remove it.

It is in these cases that the greatest dangers in having a root canal lies. Why? Because once the Dentist fills the canal, the infection is walled (or locked in) and NO drug, herb or vitamin supplement can get to infection. Yet the infection can get to the entire body - the other teeth, bones, the organs, etc. Can anything be done, you may ask? Yes, undo what was done, i.e., remove the substance that filled the canal, take specific herbs and homeopathics to digest the germs causing the infection and to remove the damaged/decayed cells, the digested germs, and their waste from the body.

As the body becomes more ill from this infection permeating from the canal, most M.D. do not know THIS is the source of the infection that is spreading throughout the body will prescribe antibiotics.

The Root Canal procedure also includes removing the nerves in the tooth, receiving the Root Canal. Removing nerves has an adverse affect on other parts of the body. In other words, each tooth has nerves to another area of the body. Whatever adversely affects that tooth also affects the corresponding area of the body it is linked to. Once the nerves in that tooth has been removed, there is nothing than can help heal the damage that will occur in that corresponding area of the body.

ANTIBIOTICS CAUSE DYSBIOSIS, LEADING TO A MYRIAD OF HEALTH CHALLENGES

Taking antibiotics does not work as explained above and taking them destroys intestinal flora, causing Dysbiosis, in addition to, damaging/destroying the intestine’s ability to grow its own flora.

Dysbiosis is when the intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) has been destroyed, which must be present to act as guards lining the intestinal wall. The function of this flora is to:

1. monitor parasite (germs/worms) overgrowth and
2. prevent infection and parasites from moving through the intestinal wall and infecting the rest of the body.

In this state of Dysbiosis, the person’s defense against parasite overgrowth is gone. When flora is sufficient in the intestines and its defenses strong, this is called, Eubiosis.

CANDIDA – CAUSE

With the lost of this intestinal flora defense, yeast overgrowth ensues and produces the symptoms, called Candida. Anyone who has experienced Candida knows that yeast overgrowth can affect every part of the body and produce symptoms from head to toe, such as lack of concentration, headaches, mental fog, pain the joints, muscles, organs or glands, to toe fungus.

If you have taken just one antibiotic drug or any other drug that destroys intestinal flora, you have Dysbiosis and in time will develop Candida. Because Candida affects every part of the body, a person may be treated by their physician for the symptoms in an area of the body affected by the Candida and overlook the actual cause of the symptoms. Therefore, it would be wise to contact me for a Dysbiosis Supplement Program to assist your body in growing its own intestinal flora again and we suspect you, also, have symptoms of Candida, this can be verified through biochemical testing of a stool sample or vaginal swab. Candida, according to one of my mentors, i.e., yeast overgrowth, is diagnosed as cancer in its chronic stages of development.

From my own clinical observations, I agree. What is one of the most frequent comments you hear about cancer? It can start in one area of the body and spread throughout the body rapidly. Yeast is in the mold and fungus species. If you find mold on one small area of, say, a piece of cheese in the refrigerator and do not remove it, what do you observe a few days later? The mold has grown and the area is enlarged. If you still did not remove it and came back a few more days later, the mold may have consumed the entire block of cheese. Now what if you did not remove the cheese, but left it there, in time, the mold would so thoroughly consume the cheese that it would flatten and then disintegrate. Doesn’t this sound like what happens to the human body with cancer?

The holistically-minded patient, who suspects Candida is the cause of their symptoms, will then seek a natural or holistic health care practitioner, such as a Naturopathic Doctor or Clinical Nutritionist. If their practitioner recognizes this state of Dysbiosis, it is standard protocol to recommend Probiotics. Probiotics are ingesting in capsule form, generally, the intestinal flora/bacteria to replace what has been destroyed.

Recommending Probiotics is a good recommendation, but an incomplete one. Why? Because, when the practitioner has reviewed the Laboratory Reports from testing initial and updated yeast cultures and finds the latest test results indicate yeast is now within normal range (healthy intestines must have some yeast), the patient will be advised to stop the Probiotics. Some patients may assume when the symptoms are gone, they are healed and may stop taking Probiotics without consulting their practitioner before doing so.

In either case, once the person stops taking Probiotics, in due time, the yeast overgrowth will reoccur and the patient becomes confused as to why they have Candida again. Why? Because the cause of yeast overgrowth was not corrected.

As a general rule, “Never stop a supplement prescribed based on testing results until the an updated test indicates you no longer require the supplement.” Being symptoms free is not an indication of health or healing attained. To understand this statement, click here to read the ”Why Test?” webpage of my website at http://www.advancedclinicalnutrition.com/whytest.html.

Recommending Probiotics, without correcting the cause of yeast or other germ overgrowth, is much like giving someone sitting in a sinking boat, a bucket to scoop out the water. If their reflexes are fast enough to keep dumping out the water, the boat may stay afloat until it reaches the shore. However, stop using the bucket and the boat sinks.

DYBIOSIS – CORRECTING THE CAUSE

To correct the cause of Dysbiosis is to restore the intestines ability to grow its own flora and avoid taking Antibiotics and other drugs that will destroy intestinal flora again. I am currently one of the few doctors in the U.S. who actually knows which three herbs are required by the intestines to heal its lining and restore its ability to grow its own flora/bacteria again. So, I rarely recommend Probiotics.

Additionally, as Cindy knows from personal experience, I dispense specific “therapeutic” homeopathics that detoxify bacteria, virus, and other germs/worms/toxins from the body, that are safe, effective and do not adversely affect the intestinal flora, and have been doing so with great success for over 20 years. Because of this, I have not personally taken an antibiotic since 1975 and my son is 24 years old and is a truly drug-free American. We also have specific homeopathics and therapeutic supplements to detoxify the germs that cause tooth abscesses.

Therefore, the need for antibiotics today is limited to use in hospitals or emergency rooms, when saving the life of someone involved in a life-threatening accident, injured in a war, or having surgery. Why, limited to using only in these cases? Because using antibiotics is still standard medical treatment in hospitals and emergency rooms. However, outside of these facilities, the patient has a choice of treatments for infections – antibiotics or herbs/homeopathics, etc. Whether antibiotics have been administered as standard treatment in the hospital or emergency room or the patient has chosen to take antibiotics, they should begin a therapeutic Dysbiosis Herbal Supplement Program to restore the body’s ability to produce its own intestinal flora again as soon as the antibiotics have been discontinued. I also recommend, the next time, this patient thinks an antibiotic is needed, to contact me for a therapeutic homeopathic and experience this truth that antibiotics are no longer needed except in hospitals or emergency rooms.

CANDIDA – HEALING

To correct Candida is to restore the body’s ability to grow its own intestinal flora and take therapeutic herbs or vitamin/herb formulations that digest the excess yeast. My patients are delighted with my therapeutic Candida program, not only because it is safe and effective, but because it does not require the standard highly restrictive Candida Diet.

TO CONCLUDE THIS INTRODUCTION ON ROOT CANALS

In closing this introduction on Root Canals, you now understand that not only is having a root canal dangerous to the entire body due removing the nerves in the affected tooth and walling in the infection that can spread throughout the body, the standard medical treatment (only since the early 1900’s) for infections is prescribing antibiotics, which can lead to far worse health challenges, due to Dysbiosis, yeast (Candida) and other germ overgrowth, than the patient’s original health challenge, i.e., one infected tooth. Additionally, the source of the infection affecting the rest of the body will remain undetected because suspecting root canals as a possible source is not standard practice for Medical Doctors and even Traditional Dentists.


ROOT CANAL ALTERNATIVE

So what is the alternative to a root canal? There are a number of specially trained, holistic dentists who understand these dangers and have a healthier procedure for dealing with a tooth diagnosed for the root canal procedure by traditional dentists not trained or aware of alternative procedures.

Mercury/Amalgam Fillings and Implants, also, recommended in traditional dentistry, each have their own dangers and should be avoided.

IMPLANT DANGERS AND ALTERNATIVES

The Titanium (or other metal) prosthesis or rods in implants or any metal in any other part of the body short-circuits the electrical frequencies of the nervous system and can interfere or stop messages from the brain to other parts of the body, from the body to the brain, or from one part of the body to another. In time this interference causes dysfunction in all the areas of the body not receiving clear communications. If this is difficult to believe, get a piece of titanium or any metal and a wire that has electricity running through it and run your own experiment. Only be sure not to touch the metal and electrocute yourself. LOL. Additionally Google Titanium and see how toxicity this metal is.

One of my observations with substances (chemicals and metals) used in dental and medical treatment that are deemed acceptable is judged so because of their short-term answer to an immediate need without giving consideration to the adverse affect on the human mind and body from this slow poisoning of or ongoing interference with the function of the cells and tissue that results from daily exposure. Additionally, there are many medical and dental procedures that contribute to degenerative diseases, including the substances used for examination procedures, such as having patients ingest dyes that can help the physician diagnoses the disease.

If you already have implants or metals in other areas of the body, read my website article, ”Scars, Tattoos, Piercings, Vaccination Puncture Sites And Other Interference (To Healing) Field” at http://www.advancedclinicalnutrition.com/articlesbydrsmith/scarstattoos.html.

Just a little over a year ago, a colleague of one of my holistic dentists developed a procedure for implants using a non-metal prosthesis that is safe and effective for implants. Feel free to contact me for their contact information.

MERCURY FILLINGS DANGERS AND ALTERNATIVES

There is much information available today online, and a number of books written on the dangers of mercury poisoning of cells and tissue, due to broken or chipped teeth that leak mercury from the cavity or degraded mercury, itself, is then swallowed and absorbed in the mouth or tongue tissue and spreads to the rest of the body.

Because of this available information, I am going to just mention one fact that when presented is either misleading or misinforming. In your search online, you may find reports stating that mercury is a safe to use because mercury is a stable substance. Though this is true that mercury in itself is a stable substance, what is omitted from these reports is information about two factors that make mercury unstable – heat and friction. So as long as mercury is not in contact with heat or friction it is stable. However, what do you think happens each time the upper teeth come in contact with the lower teeth – friction -- and each time a person eats foods or drinks beverages that are hot, the mercury fillings are exposed to heat.

Thus, in time, the mercury becomes unstable and leaks out or as the tooth surrounding it continues to degenerate it will break or chip and release the mercury.

There are healthier substances available today for filling cavities than silver, mercury, also called amalgam, fillings. I have an article that provides instructions on what to present and request of a traditional dentist to assist your dentist in performing standard, traditional dentistry, only using healthier substances for fillings cavities. Below, I have, also, provided information on how to contact a holistic dentist.

A SMALL CAVITY (BLACK DOT) MAY NOT REQUIRE DENTISTRY

To answer Cindy’s question about her small black dot (cavity). A small black dot may not require a dentist, but simply a clinical nutrition dental supplement program to nourish, strengthen, and detoxify that tooth, if the cavity is not too far gone (decayed) for repair in the places not seen. A dental examination may be required only to assess the health of the tooth. If the small dot of a cavity is worse in unseen places, the information in the article referred to below will present a list of healthier substances, than mercury, to fill the cavity.

HOLISTIC & TRADITIONAL DENTISTRY

Any traditional dentist today can do what holistic dentists are doing because both traditional and holistic dental techniques and procedures are still founded in standard dentistry taught in dental schools.

So How Does A Holistic Dentist Differ From A Traditional Dentist?

A Holistic Dentist:


1. has completed post-graduate study and training in dental techniques and procedures that were not discovered prior to their graduation from dental school that will “Do No Harm” to other areas of the body, including the teeth.
a. To update college curriculum takes decades to accomplish. Therefore, innovative dental education, techniques and procedures must be obtained by attending dental courses not offered by dental school.

2. substitutes safe and non-toxic dental substances and solutions in place of the toxic substances and solutions they were taught to use in dental school. Substances like mercury for filling cavities, which was selected as traditional dental practice because it was stability, which made for long-term durability. The long-term adverse affects on the body were not considered.

3. Is an independent thinker, who acknowledges the truth in the above statement in 1.a. and does not dismiss sound and progressive dental education, research or procedural training simply because it was not taught in dental school.

4. Advanced Holistic Dentists recognizes the dangers of drug therapy (for example, antibiotics, as explained above) and that the TRUE CAUSE for the need of their dental services, in the first place, is malnutrition (clinical and subclinical deficiencies) and toxicity (exposure to germs, worms, and toxic metals and chemicals) in the teeth, gums and jaws. Therefore, the advanced holistic dentist also refers their patients to a Clinical Nutritionist and/or Naturopathic Doctor for

a. vitamin and mineral testing of their biochemistry to identify these deficiencies so the specific therapeutic, whole food supplements may be taken for nutrient repletion to restore sufficient nutrient levels and for internal body detoxification to improve the health of the teeth.

b. Therapeutic herbs, homeopathics and other whole food vitamins/minerals dispensed for acute dental health challenges, such as infections, abscesses, etc. These supplements work as quickly as antibiotics without the adverse affects on intestinal flora and the rest of the body.

c. And change of diet. Most people know, for example, ingesting refined/processed white sugar is one of the leading poisons, labeled as food, in our American cultural diet that destroys enamel, gums, degenerates jaw bones and rots teeth.

HOLISTIC DENTISTRY IS FOUNDED IN STANDARD DENTAL PRACTICE

As you google for more information on holistic dentistry, you may find websites that want you to believe that holistic dentistry is quackery or not founded in standard dentistry practice. Any traditional dentist can learn the holistic dentistry and all holistic dentists began as traditional dentists.

It is a historical fact that innovative research, education, and training can take decades to be accepted by the traditionalists in any professional field of science (medical, dental or nutritional) or any industry. Therefore, expecting the ADA to support holistic dentistry is also not likely any time soon and the ADA is often the source for the negative reports published about holistic dentistry. This also applies to the American Medical Association (AMA) support of holistic health care practitioners, like Naturopathic Doctors, and the American Dietetic Association (ADA) support of other fields of nutritional science, like Clinical Nutrition (i.e., the Clinical Nutritionist).

Just because you are the first kid on the block does not mean you should be the only kid or you are the only one with value when others arrive. However, this attitude seems to dominate the health and disease care industry. Truth be known, non-medical therapies today have existed before the standard 20th century medical practice of using only drugs and surgery as treatments for the human body However, this is not known by the general public because they were born in the 20th century and all public health education about the treatment of illness and disease has been centered on drugs and surgery.

NOT ALL HOLISTIC DENTISTS OFFER THE SAME SERVICES

Because holistic dentistry is a new field of dentistry, and because it will be decades for the curriculum in dental schools to include holistic techniques and procedures as standard practice, there has not been sufficient time to establish a standard of training or holistic practice among the holistic dentists today. It is currently at the discretion or awareness of the holistic dentist to seek holistic training and, thus, training may vary.

Additionally, because of American Dental Association’s (ADA) dogmatic view point about mercury being stable and, therefore, safe to use as a substance for filling, there may never been training in healthier non-toxic substances in dental schools.
Because holistic dentistry is founded in standard, traditional dental practices, all holistic dentists were once traditional dentists. Holistic Dentists may, also, obtain holistic dental certifications which allow them to integrate holistic protocols with standard, traditional dental practice. It is also important to know that traditional dentists in your community may be willing to learn and may even be knowledgeable in some holistic procedures. However, they are not allowed, due to ADA dictates, to offer these procedures unless the patient requests them.

Therefore, it is the responsibility of the individual to educate him or herself, specifically, about what questions to ask of your holistic dentist to assess whether the holistic dentist offers the holistic procedure you need and how to request holistic procedures so the traditional dentist can provide the service you need, if knowledgeable or trained.

FINDING A HOLISTIC DENTIST

Here are two websites for locating holistic dentists:

http://www.holisticdental.org/membersearch

http://www.holisticdentalnetwork.com

There are others. I do not know these dentists professionally. I do, however, have my own list of holistic dentists I refer my clients to whom I know are trained in all aspects of holistic dentistry and whom I trust to take excellent care of my clients. Please feel free to call or email me for their contact information.

HOW TO OBTAIN ARTICLE FOR MORE SPECIFIC DENTAL INFORMATION:

I have a article I provide for my clients that gives them a list of healthier substances for filling cavities, a list of questions to ask their dentist to determine if their dentist can perform holistic procedures, and how to request holistic procedures from traditional dentists so they may provide the services you need if they are trained to do so, and much, much more.

I will be glad to provide this article Free of Charge, just pay for the shipping, for anyone who subscribes to my newsletter and agrees to read at least three issues to give it a fair evaluation of its value before considering to unsubscribe.
My bi-monthly HealthQuest News e-newsletter provides information current and hot health topics, such as:

• information like this that is not generally known by the public and is a must-know to protect oneself and loved ones from information portrayed as facts, but are actually misleading, lies or propaganda published by special interest groups motivated by money or greed, or worse to make Americans sick so they are easily managed and desperate,

• coach the public on how the body functions and what causes it to become dysfunctional and diseased,

• provide education on how to truly heal the body without drugs and other treatments that interfere with its function, such as electro-magnetic fields (EMF),

• give the pubic the health education that has been purposely omitted since the beginning of the 20th century on how to test for the deficiencies, biochemical imbalances and organ and gland dysfunctions that precede disease and

• how to use safe, effective, non-invasive therapies, such as how to use herbs, homeopathics and whole food supplements to assist the body in healing and repairing cells, tissues organs and glands to promote new cell growth, i.e., cellular regeneration, balance body chemistry, restore organ and gland function, and prevent disease. I would much rather prevent disease than just detect it early.

• lastly, include resources for my subscribers and clients to obtain more information or other services they need to improve their health that I do not provide.

CONCLUSION

To summarize this Holistic Dentistry Introduction, I have provided some primary dangers of the root canal not generally known. The public is more aware of mercury filling and its adverse affect on the human body, though they are not generally aware of the name of specific substances, which the article referred to above will provide, that are safe to use so they can make sure they request these substances whenever they have a cavity in need of filling.

It is a fact that all drugs are toxic to the human body and to use a drug for any other purpose than when in a hospital or emergency room is to cause more health challenges for oneself, which I shared one of the worse drug side effect and this is Dybsiosis, which leads to Candida. In the treatment of Candida, I also shared why Probiotics, though a help, is not getting to the cause and will not heal the body of Candida. I also shared why it is important to correct Dysbiosis and Candida as soon as possible to avoid the development of other diseases, including cancer.

Correcting Dysbiosis is an in expensive clinical nutrition program, which I dispense, upon request, to anyone who has ever taken an antibiotic and will provide a FREE CONSULTATION to assess if they are also experiencing the symptoms of Candida and what is required to correct this.

Please give me a call at (940) 761-4045, if you suspect you have either of these and if you have taken antibiotics, and by the way, taking them just once, or any other drug that destroys intestinal flora, you can be assured that you have both.

It is possible to avoid dental procedures when you improve the nutritional quality of your teeth and detoxify germs and worms from the entire body, and there are healthier treatments for infections and abscess that work as quickly as antibiotics with no side effects.

Because the teeth directly affects every part of the human body, it is important for each person to take responsibility to learn all they can about how to properly care for their teeth and how to holistically treat their teeth, gums, and jaws in the event their dental health is currently or in future need of a dental procedure.

Lastly I have offered to provide an article that will supply you with the information you need to get started on taking responsibility for your dental health just for the price of mailing it to you and a commitment to subscribe and read just three issues over a six month period of my FREE NEWSLETTER. Again to subscribe, go to http://www.AdvancedClinicalNutrition.com.

Thank you for your interest in this article, your dedication to improving your health and helping me fulfill my mission in life, which is best stated by Winston Churchill in 1943, “Healthy Citizens are the Greatest Asset Any Country Can Have.”

Infertility 1 of 2 - What Is Required To Birth A Healthy Baby.

INFERTILITY - WHAT IS REQUIRED TO BIRTH A HEALTHY BABY -- One couple now has three children, though five physicians originally told them they would never conceive. Another couple, the wife experienced three miscarriages before being referred to Advanced Clinical Nutrition and now they have two children.

Due to the length of this article on Infertility, the information is provided in two blog postings.

PURPOSE AND INTRODUCTION:

A Clinical Nutrition Analysis or interpretation of biochemical testing of blood, saliva, hair, urine, etc., is different from a medical interpretation. This is why identifying the causes of infertility is often not possible through medical diagnosis, unless there is a disease in the reproductive glands and organs.

After all, Pregnancy and Infertility are not diseases, and the practice of medicine is for emergency medical assistance and the diagnosis of diseases and life-threatening conditions. Additionally, medical treatment utilizes drugs for the management of the symptoms of disease and surgery, when drugs can no longer manage the symptoms, or the progression of disease in the organ or gland is left-threatening. Then, surgical removal of a part may extend the life of the whole body. However, some parts of the body cannot be removed surgically or the patient will die.

Thus, medical treatment is not designed for pregnancy (as you know many drugs warn against taking them while pregnant) or infertility, though there are some extreme medical treatments that can manipulate biochemistry and force pregnancy on a body that has been rejecting pregnancy. The innate healing system within is the wisest doctor we have and if the body is rejecting conception or pregnancy at any stage, it behooves us to find out why and work with, not against the body. Otherwise, the consequences may have damaging and lasting effects. Since one of the primary purposes for a woman's body is to house and nourish the baby to full-term, then it should be logical that the inability to do this must have something to do with nutrition and that which blocks nutrition (i.e., toxicity).

This blog has been written to encourage and introduce couples challenged with infertility that it is possible to identify the causes of infertility, and other male and female symptoms that have no medical cause, and there is safe and effective therapy available through a clinical nutrition and naturopathic practitioner, like Dr. Smith, who can assist them in the process of identifying and correcting the causes of their infertility to the joy of the birth and post-delivery care of their healthy baby and mother.

Public awareness is sorely lacking today in what a couple must do to prepare their bodies to birth a healthy child. We have professional Nutritionists and Sports Coaches for training athletes to compete in sports events, and yet, how much more important is it for couples to receive the same professional attention, education, training and support to assure that their children have the health of mind and body to compete in life events and secure the future of our country's citizens.

My mission is based on the words of Winston Churchill, in 1943, "Healthy Citizens Are The Greatest Asset Any Country Can Have."

The statistics on increasing numbers of couples experiencing infertility today is evidence of this lack of public education.

Identifying and correcting the Causes of Infertility is the responsibility of both the male and female desiring to have a healthy baby, not solely the female's responsibility. Therefore, a clinical nutrition analysis of both male and female biochemistry is required.


TWO SUCCESS STORIES FROM DR. SMITH'S ACTUAL CASES HISTORIES:

1. Five physicians told a couple that they could never have a baby and there was nothing more they could do for them. After being referred to Advanced Clinical Nutrition by another satisfied client, this couple had their biochemistry tested and corrected the causes of their infertility through clinical nutrition and naturopathic therapy, and now have three healthy children.

2. The wife of another couple had three miscarriages by the time she was referred to me. Each time, she miscarried in the third month. After being on their clinical nutrition program for a number of month, anxious to get pregnant, the couple asked me if they could now get pregnant. I advised them to wait for another six months and then they would be ready to do so. At their next appointment, the couple announced they were pregnant.

This time, the wife carried the baby to five months and then miscarried. I advised the couple to view this event realistically and positively, that though they had gotten pregnant against my clinical nutrition advice, it served the purpose of providing them with evidentiary proof that their clinical nutrition program is working, as this pregnancy aborted at five, instead of three, months and the miscarriage happened only because they just got pregnant too soon.

So, I adjusted her program to detoxify and replenish nutrients from the miscarriage, and they both continued their programs for another six months, with my adjusting the program, according to updated testing. Six months later, I announced to them to – Go for it! And they did. They got pregnant shortly after and now they have two children, exactly what they wanted – a boy and then a girl.


TOXICITY AND MALNUTRITION DEFINED

Toxicity is the accumulation of chemicals, metals and other toxic substances in the cells and tissue of body organs and glands from the ingestion or exposure to pollutants in air, food and water. Toxic cells and tissue initiate the degeneration process of the damaged and dying, which results in dead cells and tissue.

Toxicity also applies to parasite (germ and worm) infestation. Parasites are electro-magnetically attracted to the malnourished and toxic cells and tissue for which the specific germ or worm is designed to break down. In other words, parasites are designed to metabolize the malnourished, damaged or dying cell and tissue and chemically change them into substances, called "waste," for the body to eliminate. This is a law of physics and biochemistry, i.e., the evolutionary process of parasites returning human matter (dead cells/tissue) to the earth. However, the body is not always able to eliminate its waste due to a dysfunctional liver, kidneys and intestines, and the waste becomes deposited in other cells and tissue, causing them to become toxic.

Most people think of malnutrition as a condition of third-world countries; however, since the industrialization of the food industry in the early 1900's, producing refined, processed and chemically-additive/preservative, packaged foods, people are experiencing the symptoms of malnutrition, today, more than the symptoms of disease caused by injury or hereditary factors. These processed foods (or rather non-foods) are produced by removing enzymes from the whole foods, then the food industry fortifying them with "synthetic" vitamins and minerals, often not even extracted from foods, but synthetically produced in a laboratory from non-food sources, all for the purpose of extending shelf-life of packaged foods. This and other factors, like depleted soils that grow foods, are adversely affecting human nutrition, today.

In fact, all illnesses and diseases, except those caused injury or hereditary (which is few in comparison) are the results of long-term nutrient deficiencies (in vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, fats/oils and water) that in time, adversely affects biochemical balance. This begins the process of degeneration, i.e., the body's inability to grow new, healthy cells and tissue. Long-term cellular and tissue deficiency and biochemical imbalance causes dysfunctions, then in time, diseases develops in the organs, glands and body systems containing more malnourished, decaying and dead cells/tissue than healthy ones.

In respect to parasites, there are two other important considerations.

1. Though parasites have a biological purpose, they are not entirely discriminating, as they can also digest (eat) healthy cells and tissue. They, also, stay in the human body when there is sufficient malnourished cells and tissue in which to feed on. In time, malnourished people become so inundated with parasites feeding on the cells and tissues of their organs, glands and body systems that the increased number of parasites, plus the malnourished cells and tissue that are decaying, accelerates the progress of dysfunction and disease.

This is what Louis Pasteur missed in his "germ theory" research that unfortunately became the basis for medical treatment in the 20th Century, and the development of pharmaceutical drugs to kill parasites. On his death bed, Louis Pasteur confessed that he was wrong, that germs do not cause diseases.

Think of it this way, which came first the mosquito or the swamp, the swamp, of course. Parasites only invade the body when its internal environment contains malnourished, damaged, decaying (dying)and dead cells and tissue.

However, this confession was ignored by the American Medical Association and medical schools and, now, we have a whole generation of people and medical professionals, who have overlooked the true cause of illnesses and diseases, and that is "malnourished" cells, tissue, organs, glands and body systems.

Therefore, malnutrition and toxicity are the primary causes all illnesses and diseases, including infertility.

2. Our social burial service of making caskets that may take the earth decades, if not centuries, to break down first, if possible, to get to the human matter. Human matter nourishes and replenishes the earth, just like plant matter from a dead tree. Therefore, this social burial services is promoting malnourishment of the earth. Some day, we may well experience the adverse affects of this burial service, if it is not stopped in time. This is another topic that needs more public awareness and action.


MALE CONSIDERATIONS

The Medical approach is to consider nothing more about the male role in pregnancy or infertility, than if there is a sufficient vs. low sperm count, other than possible testicle and prostate diseases. However, what is in the sperm should also be considered.

Malnourished sperm cells and toxicity in sperm can adversely affect its quality and quantity and this toxicity can be transferred to the egg at the moment of ovulation, which adversely affect its development, even destroy the egg. So assisting the male in detoxifying sperm and increasing the sperm's nutrient and hormone value is a key consideration for the male, which in turn improves production of sufficient sperm count.


FEMALE CONSIDERATIONS

Regarding the woman, the human body is very wise. A woman’s body is designed for pregnancy. So what needs to be considered is what is stopping a woman from getting pregnant and/or bringing pregnancy to full-term, as there is a always a reason.

For example: "Why is the egg being rejected by the body, rather than staying embedded and progressing to the next phase of developing and maturing the fetus? Is the problem with the egg or the uterine lining? Getting to the cause of this is wiser and safer for both mother and fetus, rather than trying to force the body to do something it is rejecting, which is often the procedure of fertility clinics.

Forcing the body to do anything by manipulating its biochemistry and metabolic processes can have some short-term results, but there are long-term adverse affects on the baby, such as being born with disability or deformity, and for the mother, such as:

1. affecting future ability to have children or
2. make her already severe hormone imbalance worse, which in time can:
a. affect the woman’s emotional states and sanity, and
b. inhibit regeneration of the other healthy hormone-related cells and tissue (e.g., the bones and joints)
c. accelerate her aging process.


TYPICAL SCENARIO FOR MOST WOMEN TODAY

In fact, here is the typical scenario for most women today. Birth control pills suppress the elevation of progesterone in the second cycle of the female reproduction system. Without elevated progesterone the egg cannot develop into a fetus/baby, which is what makes birth control pills successful.

However, elevated progesterone is required by the body to stop estrogen from making more eggs. Because birth control inhibits this process, by the time a young woman has been on birth control pills for several years, they have such a high count of rotten eggs in their uterus that it causes infection and they develop Endometriosis and/or have break-through bleeding or spotting, or weeks and months of excessive menstrual bleeding (i.e., beyond five days).

The medical answer is a partial or complete hysterectomy, when their synthetic, chemical drugs fail to balance hormones, and this process ends the hopes of many couples to birth their own children. According to Dr. Janet Lang, 90% of hysterectomies are elective, which means they are not life-threatening. This means this is the only option their physicians offer to women. Hormone drugs fail because only nutrients can improve the function of hormone-producing glands.

For women, who are not in such a severe state that their physician suggest a hysterectomy, may be severe enough, however, to experience infertility or have multiple miscarriages.

Women who can have their first baby, because of toxicity, poor diet and lack of public education in how to prepare their bodies for pregnancy and delivery, go into their second and other pregnancies, so nutrient-depleted from the first and each consecutive pregnancy, that their health suffers from varying degrees of malnutrition and toxicity for the rest of their lives, and each pregnancy produces a more malnourished and toxic child.

This is why if you observe the health of children in families today, you will find that the healthiest child is generally the first born and the last born is generally the weakest one… more allergies, more colds/flu, etc. Today, we have more children experiencing adult diseases than any other time in history. Each child being less healthy compared to the one born before it.

And the mothers – bless them, by the time they are in their 30’s, if they started having babies in early twenties. or younger, or by their 40’s if they had children in their late twenties or 30’s – are now

1. on anti-depressant drugs because their hormone imbalances are so severe that it causes extremes in mood swings, irritability, even violence, which can lead to divorce years later.

2. so exhausted and fatigued from severe mineral depletion that if the world would leave them alone, they would stay in bed all day as they cannot get enough sleep in just eight hours. That is, if their responsibilities of women today even gives them eight hours to sleep. Without sufficient minerals, cells cannot produce sufficient energy for internal biological processes AND activity of the person. Without sufficient sleep (8 hours every night) the body cannot repair and heal itself, which is purpose of sleep.

3. Lack of sleep, malnutrition, and toxicity accelerates in the aging process of men and women. However, due to multiple pregnancies, women have always been more malnourished than men. Acceleration of the aging process is observed in women getting facial wrinkles sooner, graying of hair before they are in their 50's, joint or muscle aches and stiffness, heart murmurs or palpitations, etc., including more female symptoms of severe hormone imbalances that leads to their physicians recommending hysterectomies as their only solution. Symptoms are related to which areas of the body most depleted and toxic from each pregnancy. Why do people generally start getting gray hair around or after the age of 50? It generally takes that long for long-term minerals deficiencies to affect the new, healthy hair growth, which causes pre-mature graying, thinning and hair loss.

Not sure the above is true, just ask the women you know in these age groups and see how many would say that #1-#3 applies to them and women they know.

Infertility 2 of 2 - What Is Required To Birth A Healthy Baby.

Due to the length of this article on Infertility, the information is provided in two blog postings.

TWO FREQUENT CAUSES OF INFERTILITY and OTHER MALE OR FEMALE SYMPTOMS

1. Malnutrition - In Blog Post #1, some of the causes and adverse affects of malnutrition was explained, in addition to, laying the foundation of understanding that malnutrition is the root cause of all illnesses and diseases, except those resulting from accidental or violent injury (such as from an personal assault, chemical poisoning or war-time injury) and inherent weaknesses.
However, though malnutrition may not be the cause of an inherent weaknesses or disease in an organ or gland of someone living today, it is a logical assumption that malnutrition of those who came before, a malnourished inherent bloodline, is a root cause of why the person living today has their inherent weaknesses and diseases.
Malnutrition at a cellular and tissue level adversely affects biochemical balance, such as causing an imbalance in hormone production, due to its long-term adverse affect on the healthy function of the organ or gland producing male and female hormones. This applies to the organ or gland production of adrenal, thyroid or any hormone or other substance, such as insulin from the pancreas, anti-bodies to fight infection, etc.

2. Toxicity - Toxicity has been defined above, as well as Male sperm toxicity, so let's look at female toxicity:

a. Toxic Uterine Lining - When the lining of the uterus is toxic, the body rejects the egg or inhibits the egg from maturing the fetus. The toxicity in the lining can also destroys the egg or fetus, depending on which phase of development it was in at time of destruction.
At Advanced Clinical Nutrition, our services assists clients in detoxifying cells and tissue, and provides nutrients required to grow (regenerate)new healthy cells and tissue in male sperm and female uterus lining, entire male and female reproductive systems and overall health improvement.
Fertility clinics can plant the egg, but the body may reject it if the uterus lining is severely toxic. Even if the toxicity of the uterine lining is not severe enough to reject the egg and the eggs get implanted, this toxicity is passed onto the egg and can abort (miscarriage) the fetus at a later stage in the pregnancy. Again, if the severity of toxicity and malnutrition is not severe enough to miscarry, it may still be severe enough to cause the birth of a deformed or disabled child.
Also, the embedded eggs that were rejected (aborted or destroyed) by the toxic uterine lining, stay in the lining and rot. The rotted eggs cause infections that can further contribute to miscarriage and birth defects, as well as lead to future health challenges for the mother, and lead to complications in future pregnancies.

HORMONE IMBALANCE

Malnutrition and Toxicity in the cells and tissues of the organs and glands responsible for producing hormones can causes sub-clinical (insufficient), clinical (deficient) and chronic (severe) Hormone Imbalance. Any stage, from sub-clinical to chronic), hormone imbalance can cause infertility and/or any other male and female symptom of illness and disease. The more severe the hormone balance the more severe the symptoms.

For example, in infertility, a woman who cannot conceive has a more severe hormone imbalance than a woman who miscarries, and a woman who miscarries has a more severe hormone imbalance that a woman who births a baby with birth defects.

Everything we do in the proper care of the human mind and body is a progression towards or the maintenance of health; consequently the lack of proper care (malnourishment and toxicity)is a progression towards disease. The daily choices each person makes determines which direction they are progressing.

In the progress of disease, there are varying stages of imbalance and dysfunctions along with way, produce the same symptoms in varying degrees, as the symptoms of disease. After all, remember that the root cause of all diseases is malnutrition and toxicity. Biochemical imbalances, such as hormone imbalances, and organ/gland dysfunctions are just less severe progressive stages towards disease.

This why clinical and sub-clinical Hormone imbalances cannot be identified in a medical interpretation of biochemical testing (blood, saliva, hair, urine, etc.). However, they can be identified a clinical nutrition interpretation.

Hormone imbalance will inhibit any one or more of the phases in the process of getting pregnant, developing the egg, carrying the fetus to full term and/or birthing a healthy baby – any of these phases can be halted if the hormones required to complete the phase is deficient or excessive. For example:

a. Hormone production (LH, FSH) begins in the brain, in the hypothalamus, pituitary and thymus glands. An imbalance of these hormones, in time, affect the production of all other hormones.

b. Estrogen production. In the first cycle of the female reproductive system, estrogen deficiency can inhibit to development of the egg? Thus, estrogen sufficiency must be established through clinical nutrition therapy to conceive. Estrogen excess can cause the development of too many eggs and the eggs that are not developed into a fetus, stay in the uterus and rot. This, then, can lead to Endometriosis, which is toxic uterine cells in the uterus lining that grow outside the uterine cavity. Endometriosis is a frequent cause of infertility.

c. Ovulation – Challenges in conception can also be caused by the timing in the elevation of estrogen and the decline of progesterone. If this does not happen appropriately in the 12-14 day of the menstruation cycle, conception can be inhibited.

d. Progesterone production. In the second cycle of the female reproduction system, progesterone deficiency (or drug suppression) can inhibit the the egg from developing the fetus and affects its maturity to full term. Once a woman discontinues birth control pills, it can take six months or longer for the body to recover from progesterone suppression to resume the incline of progesterone in this second cycle, if possible. A clinical nutrition therapeutic supplement program will assist the body in recovery from progesterone drug suppression and producing sufficient progesterone.

e. Mineral deficiencies. One of the primary purposes of minerals is to transport hormones and other substances, such as insulin from the pancreas, ingested proteins, etc., to the cells. Therefore, even if the male or female reproductive glands are producing sufficient hormones, mineral deficiencies in the specific minerals that transport male and female hormones to the cells will cause hormone imbalances and thus, contribute to infertility and/or other male and female hormone-related symptoms.

Note: Hormone imbalance, therefore, can be caused by dysfunctional production of hormones in any one or more of the following: pituitary, hypothalmus, thymus, male and female glands, as well as mineral deficiencies, and thereby, lead to infertility and/or any other hormone-related symptom for females, such as mood swings, irregular menstruation cycles, menstrual cramping and pain, spasms, breast and uterine cancer, etc., and for males, such as impotence, erectile dysfunction, incontinence, low sperm count, testicle and prostate cancer, etc.

f. Other Hormone production. There are other hormones, besides male and female hormones, involved in the healthy function of the male and female production system. For example, adrenal hormones. Ongoing mental, emotional and physical stress, in time, results in a depletion of any one or more of the adrenal hormones. Their purpose is to help the body adapt to stress and/or take action in times of extreme stress (fight or flight), such as to defend oneself or to run from danger. Therefore, whether the adrenal hormone imbalance is caused by dysfunctional adrenal gland production or the insufficient or deficient minerals to transport adrenal hormones to the cells, the result is the same...female and male hormone balance.


TESTING FOR THE CAUSES OF INFERTILITY

As previously discussed above, a clinical nutrition analysis or interpretation is different from a medical interpretation. A clinical nutrition analysis identifies clinical and sub-clinical nutrient deficiencies, biochemical imbalances and organ, gland and body system dysfunction -- all of which, precedes the disease stage of this degenerative process.

Therefore, testing for infertility and/or the cause of any symptom of male/female hormone imbalance, malnutrition or toxicity requires a Clinical Nutrition Analysis of a Tissue Mineral Hair test, blood testing, saliva adrenal stress index test and an expanded saliva hormone test for males and for females.

1. The Tissue Mineral Hair Analysis identifies whether the minerals required to transport male, female and adrenal hormones are deficient. It also identifies heavy metal toxicity from ingesting metals from polluted air, food or water.

2. Female and Male Saliva Hormone Testing will identify if the brain is producing sufficient LH and FSH hormones, Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone or which ones are deficiency and adversely affecting the couples ability to conceive, develop the egg, mature the fetus, carry the baby to full-term and updating tests post-delivery assists me in designing therapeutic supplement and dietary programs to help the mother recover from delivery to maintain health and be ready for the next pregnancy.

3. Adrenal Saliva Hormone Testing will identify if the adrenals are producing the hormones required for male and female hormone balance.

4. Blood Testing is required to identify if

a. liver and kidney function - if they are toxic and dysfunctional, they keep sending more toxic substances to the cells, which promotes toxic cells and tissue in the uterus lining, uterus cavity and produces toxic sperm, etc.

b. electrolytes are balanced – electrolytes are needs to help the communications between the cells which affects timing.

c. germs in the body – In addition to what was presented above in the Toxicity section of this blog, germs can cause further malnutrition as they eat foods being ingested to nourish cells and tissue and cause infection in the cells, tissue, organs and glands, which affect their function and inhibit the healthy development of the egg, fetus and full-term development of a healthy baby. Homeopathics and herbs are dispensed to clients to digest germs, whether the germ is viral, bacteria, worms, or yeast overgrowth. Herbs are used to re-establish intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) that is destroyed by anti-biotics and other drugs. Additionally, yeast overgrowth that can destroy the egg, when severe, or be transferred to the baby. Many women today experience Candida as vaginal yeast infections and yeast overgrowth in men is evident in infections of the testicles or prostate glands and/or athletes feet. In the newborn, yeast is often evident by a white film on the tongue, called "thrush."

d. the quality of the blood is also very important – the blood needs to be nutrient-rich as blood is what feeds the fetus and promotes the healthy development of the baby. The blood is also what determines the nutrient value of the sperm. So, the chemistry of the blood needs to be balanced or greatly improved before getting pregnant.

Any one or more of the above factors can cause a couple to have a difficult time getting and staying pregnant, birthing a healthy baby, and recovering from pregnancy.


CORRECTING THE CAUSES OF INFERTILITY AND OTHER MALE OR FEMALE SYMPTOMS

At Advanced Clinical Nutrition, we provide all of the above testing for both male and female biochemistry and from a clinical nutrition analysis of the test results, the following clinical nutrition and naturopathic therapeutic programs are designed to correct the abnormal nutritional test findings.

1. A Therapeutic, Whole Food Supplement Program is designed to raise clinical and sub-clinical nutritional deficiencies or detoxify excessive vitamins and minerals, balance biochemistry and improve the function of the organs, glands and body systems for both males and females to produce hormone production. Therapeutic supplementation is available only through nutritional healthcare practitioners and are clinically-formulated to correct the abnormal nutritional findings on the above biochemical tests.

Each therapeutic, whole food supplement program is designed to improve the individual's biochemistry and prepare it for conception and overall health improvement for future conceptions.

Therapeutic supplement programs are revised and updated, according to monitoring the results from updating biochemical tests, to assure continued success in the progress of growing new healthy cells and tissues, balancing biochemistry and improving organ/gland function to bring the pregnancy to full term, to prevent complications in labor and delivery and assist in post-delivery recovery.

2. A Dietary Analysis and Therapeutic Dietary Plan - A Dietary Analysis of the above biochemical tests provides the basis for designing a Therapeutic Dietary Plan. Foods are selected based upon their food chemistry as it affects the individual's biochemistry, in other words, foods that assist in the balancing biochemistry and hormones and avoidance of foods that cause toxicity. For example, if Glucose is elevated in the blood, carrots would not appear in the individual's dietary plan. Though carrots are a healthy food, they are high in natural sugars and can perpetuate elevated Glucose.

3, In addition to, the therapeutic supplement programs and dietary plans, as described above, the couple is coached in developing a principle-centered dietary and health-promoting lifestyle. Principle-centered means dietary and lifestyle practices that are based on the Laws of Biochemistry, Biology, Physics, etc. This is important to support optimal health attained through their therapeutic supplement and dietary programs, so the couple will also:

a. be prepared for future pregnancies,

b. extend their longevity to live longer with their families,

c. be a example of principle-centered healthy living for their children to model. Thereby, helping their children to grow up healthy, improve hereditary biological health challenges to prevent passing on more severe hereditary health challenges to their off-spring and developing their own to pass on, as well as prevent modeling parental lifestyles that create illnesses and diseases, instead of promote health.

4. Pregnancy-Specific Programs. Once pregnant, the mother's will be monitored through updating testing and adjusting, accordingly, the Therapeutic Supplement and Dietary Plans to support her biochemistry during each Trimester, Pre- and Post-Delivery Recovery and Lactation.

a. Trimester: Providing the above for each trimester through delivery provides the best possible assurance for continued success in maintaining each stage of growth and development from egg to fetus to full-term baby.

b. Delivery: A clinical nutrition program provides the healthiest possible delivery, based on the severity of the state of the couple's biochemistry (toxicity and hormone imbalances) and the degree of improvement they accomplish prior to pregnancy, as well as the mother's commitment to her therapeutic pre-natal, pregnancy, and delivery supplement and dietary programs.

c. Post-Delivery: Commitment to their therapeutic supplement and dietary recovery program to replenish nutrients, balance hormones and biochemistry as a result of delivery assists the mother in restoring own health and being prepared for her next pregnancy, when/if desired.

d. Lactation: A clinical nutrition therapeutic supplement program and dietary plan are also provided to assure ongoing milk production and flow. In other words, to prevent clogging of milk ducts or provide a gentle detoxify of substances that clog them, when applicable. Lack of milk production and the ability of the milk to get through the milk ducts are the two primary reasons, mother's give up on breast-feeding, other than their concern over the appearance of their breasts after breast-feeding. Even this latter concern has a solution for the mother's who are committed to nourishing their babies with the ideal food designed for human infants and take the specific therapeutic supplements and perform the appropriate breast exercises so that their appearance is not compromised.

1) Mother's milk is the only nutrient required for infant's first 12 months; not even pure water is required. Some Pediatricians will disagree with this, if they do not have a degree in clinical nutrition and/or naturopathy. However, mother's who commit to this advice will allow their newborns to develop a healthy digestive system to prepare it for solid foods after 12 months and allow time for the mother to pass on her anti-bodies to her newborn, thus assisting her child in developing a stronger immune system. Breast-feeding before and after 12 months also promotes mental and emotional stability.

2) Because there is no drug to increase mother's milk, and pediatricians and other physicians, educated in the 20th century were not taught dietetics or clinical nutrition in medical schools, mother's have come to believe that if their milk dries up, there is nothing that can be done to promote a healthy milk flow.

5. Regarding males – it is important for them to continue a clinical nutrition program until they attain optimal health and then learn how to maintain it, so that their body is ready for the next pregnancy. This may overlap the first pregnancy if sexual intercourse is continued while the woman is pregnant with their first. Otherwise, for example, toxic sperm can interfere with the process of the first pregnancy at any stage of that process. A male can have sufficient sperm count and still have toxic sperm. However, there is a point at which the male therapeutic supplement and dietary program is completed and as long as they have made significant dietary and lifestyle changes in developing a principle-centered healthy lifestyle to sustain their health, they do not need clinical nutrition therapy with the next or any future pregnancies. However, it is always a good idea, especially if the father has not maintained a healthy lifestyle, to have clinical nutrition testing prior to each conception and correct any deficiencies, imbalances or dysfunctions present to assure the healthy conception of each child.

DR. SMITH'S OWN SUCCESS STORY

On a personal note: I chose the care of a mid-wife and had both a mid-wife and a Birthing Assistant in the delivery of my son, Matt, born in 1985, I followed the guidelines I am presenting here to assure a healthy pregnancy, delivery, post-delivery recovery and lactation. I was in labor for three hours and tried every position possible when in labor to determine that the most painful position was lying down. My husband applied acupressure to lumbar and upper hip positions which decreased labor pain considerable to the level of discomfort vs. severe pain.

I breast-fed my son until he was five years old. Mother's milk was his only food for the first 12 months. Then over the next nine months at three-month intervals, I introduced him to raw fruits only from age 13-15 months, then raw vegetables were introduced at age 16-18 months, plus continuing raw fruits, though never at the same time. At age 19 months, I introduced him to cooked whole grains, like oat, buckwheat, barley, rice, etc. I attempted to avoid feeding him animal proteins until he was 13 years old, according to the study and practice of naturopathy. However, only managed to avoid this until he was seven, due to cultural influences on my child.

After 12 months of exclusively mother's milk, breast-feeding for the next four years was limited to upon rising and going to sleep, and for comfort whenever he was physically or emotionally injured. As a result, my son is one of the most mentally and emotionally-balanced persons I know.

During the first year of breast-feeding, I learned of league that advertised that their formation was for the purpose of helping mothers with lactating challenges. I enthusiastically joined, looking forward to the opportunity to contribute my support, knowledge and expertise freely to this non-profit service.

Breast-milk production and clogged milk ducts were the two biggest challenges these mothers had and questions were brought up by each new member at every meeting. However, I was surprised to learn that they had by-laws limiting their recommendations to medical approaches to lactation and the league was not open to change. These by-laws prevented their leaders from sharing information about herbs that promoted healthy milk production or referral to clinical nutrition or naturopathic practitioners, which I am both, who could assist them with "clinical" challenges, like clogged milk ducts, which I was willing to provide my services freely in support of the purpose of this non-profit group.

I left this group months later, as it was too painful to observe so many mothers not getting help in their lactating challenges and not being allowed to speak freely to help them. I have not followed their progress to see if they have changed with the times.

In rearing Matt, I treated him safely and effectively with herbs, homeopathics, and whole food vitamins and minerals for all childhood diseases. They were so effective that his symptoms of each were very mild. We use herbs and homeopathics for first-aide for cuts, burns, insect bites, etc., and for his one earache. I coach my clients in doing the same.

I home-schooled Matt to promote self-reliance, self-initiative and to protect his natural curiosity and love for learning, which is difficult to sustain in a classroom setting, as well as to avoid childhood vaccinations, which are only required by law in the state of Texas, if you plan to enter your child in the public-school system. My son, Matt, is currently a healthy 24-years-old man and still a drug-free American, in the purest sense.

I am sharing my own personal success story to give my readers confidence that the information I am writing in my blog is from both my clinical experience, since 1981, when I first started my business to professionally help others succeed in improving their health, no matter what their health challenges, and from my own personal experience, since 1975, when I first started learning about herbs, dietetics, nutrition and other naturopathic therapies.


CONCLUSION

In conclusion, malnutrition and toxicity are the primary causes of infertility, hormone imbalance and other symptoms of male and female health challenges. The severity of malnutrition, toxicity and hormone imbalance determines the degree of challenges of infertiity.

A clinical nutrition analysis of the couple's individual biochemistry (blood, saliva and hair) is required to identify the causes of infertility and a therapeutic supplement and dietary plan designed, based on the abnormal nutritional findings in test results, is required to correct the causes of infertility and/or any symptom of male and female health challenges. Additionally, clinical nutrition and naturopathic therapy addresses more than sperm count in respect to male challenges in infertility.

This is why routine medical diagnosis and treatment does not provide the answers to infertility and why they have resorted to extreme measures, which may have short-term benefits, but adverse long-term consequences, the inevitable outcome of manipulating human biochemistry.

The typical scenario of women today has led to castration of our female population and ending the hopes of many couples having a baby of their own, through elective hysterectomy in young women, which is the only solution offered by physicians to endometriosis, long-term bleeding and other female health challenges, which drugs are in effective.

Our clinical nutrition services also provide coaching in developing a principle-centered healthy lifestyle to:

1. sustain optimal health attained through clinical nutrition and naturopathic therapy,

2. maintain health for the rest of their lives and extend longevity,

3. prepares the couple for future pregnancies, if so desired,

4. help parents become a healthy model for their children.
