Health Basics: Promoting Self-Healing Power

The tissues in our bodies are constantly regenerated. If we can keep the regeneration process vigorous we can slow down aging, prevent illnesses, and recover from illnesses and injuries fast. The key is to remove toxins and to fortify hormones and nutrients to create an environment that allows each cell in our body to regenerate itself in a healthier and younger image.

In my search for better health, I encountered Enrich International (now Unicity) and learned about scientifically formulated nutritional supplements that take advantage of the latest nutritional and medical research around the world. I seldom get sick, my lower back and hip pain is virtually gone, and lost 20 lb. Here are some of the things I learned:

The basic ingredients of health: (Click the linked text for more information.)

  • Maintain adequate sulfur level
  • Keep your hormones balanced at youthful level
  • Prevent oxidation damages to the cells and DNA
  • Balanced vitamins and minerals
  • Feed your brain
  • Remove toxins from your liver, blood, lymph and bowel
  • Don't let parasitic infections weaken your body and immune system
  • Take care of your digestive system
  • Control your weight
  • Drink plenty of clean water
  • Start slow with your herbs and supplements and cycle them

  • Maintain adequate sulfur level: Sulfur is the forth largest mineral ingredient in all living things. As we get older, our ability to digest and breakdown food enough to utilize sulfur in our food becomes weaker, and today's vegetables do not have enough of the readily absorbable form of it due to the long storage period and processing. Sulfur plays a major role in the biochemical processes of the cell regeneration, and in the formation of enzymes and hormones that control body activities as well as breaking down toxic substances. MSM, short for methylsulfonylmethane, is a dietary source of sulfur. Vitamin C and sulfur together facilitate cell renewal and regeneration and to keep all the membranes and skin supple and permeable to allow nutrients to reach where they are needed and the toxins and waste materials to be removed. Other nutrients cannot do their job without sulfur. It plays a major role in reducing inflammation and strengthen and soften all tissues that require high sulfur level such as skin, membranes, nails, joints, hair, etc. It may just be the missing link to your optimum health. Since I added MSM to my daily supplements, my lower back and hip pain is virtually gone.

  • Keep your hormones balanced at youthful level: To maintain healthy cell regeneration and youthful physical profile and functions, maintaining all hormones at youthful level is essential. Amongst, progesterone and Human Growth Hormone (HGH) has most profound effects. Progesterone plays many important roles in women's body, it is a precursor to many important hormones, and it inhibits toxic effects of estrogen and dihydrotestosterone(DHT) (See my Hormonal Balance pages). HGH controls the rate at which our cells are regenerated and it also stimulates liver to produce IGF -1 which promotes protein synthesis in every cell in our body. HGH production declines dramatically after age 20 and by 35 we feel the effects of HGH deficiency as aging. Certain nutrients stimulate HGH production, and EnJuvenate is specifically formulated for that purpose.

    Restoring HGH level has profound effects on entire body. It can reverse the conditions associated with aging such as fat gain/muscle loss and joint problem among other things. It is also useful in healing injuries, reversing degenerative conditions, increasing muscle mass, restoring reproductive functions, invigorating mental functions, and strengthening the immune system. A book by Ronald Klatz with Carol Kahn Grow Young With HGH : The Amazing Medically Proven Plan to Reverse Aging documents HGH research. It is a must read book for anybody who wishes to live a long and healthy life.

    • In addition to natural progesterone, several hormones and hormone precursors are available as supplements in US. DHEA + natural progesterone combination is commonly used to increase testosterone (for men) and estrogen (for women) in more natural and balanced way, instead of using prescription testosterone and estrogens. Also plant hormones with week estrogenic properties can be used to promote women's hormone balance (see Women's Formula Plus, and MenoBasics Companion Pack).
    • As we age, our body loses it's ability to get rid of toxic byproducts of broken down hormones. Strengthening the liver function and providing the substances essential in the detoxifying processes such as D-glucarate and sulfur (see above) become very important in protecting our reproductive organs from tumors, fibroid, cysts, and abnormal growth. See Cleanse Pack, Women's Formula Plus, Men's Formula Plus for detail.
    • Since a large portion of HGH is secreted during the deepest sleep, it is also important to have a good night sleep. If you are not sleeping well, you can use Melatonin to promote sleep naturally and CalmPlex to reduce stress and aid falling asleep and staying asleep.
    • When it comes to enhancing sexual wellness, Viagra is not the only thing that works. By nutritionally supporting your sexual functions, you can enjoy natural spontaneity. See LoveRx for Women, LoveRx for Men.

  • Prevent oxidation damage to the cells and DNA: Our body is under constant free radical attacks, which destroy and weaken cells in all parts of our body and its cumulative effects are: less brain cells, shrunken and fragile organs and tissues, weaker muscles, weaker immune functions, and mutated cells, which lead to all sorts of degenerative diseases. Today's busy lifestyle and environmental pollutants increase the free radical attacks more than ever. Everyone can benefit from taking antioxidants everyday. Unicity's PhytoPath , the super antioxidant formula is one of the most powerful wide spectrum antioxidant supplements on the market. Antioxidants also facilitate any kind of healing our body has to go through. For a serious condition, you can saturate your body with higher doses. They also help maintain collagen structure to keep the skin and joints supple, strengthen the blood vessels, reduce inflammation and edema, and protect your eye sight. I am noticing I have less pain and less stiffness in my lower back, less swelling in my fingers, and the spider veins on my legs are fading.

  • Balanced vitamins and minerals: Today's food is deplete of nutrients and we have to eat a huge quantity if we were to get enough vitamins and minerals from regular food sources. A food craving often is an indication of a deficiency. Unicity offers multi-vitamin/mineral/herb supplements in a variety of forms:

  • Feed your brain: Modern life pushes our brain function to its limits. Most of us are addicted to caffeine to keep up with the demand. Let's not forget to supplement the critical nutrients used in the process such as Niacin(B3), Choline, and L-Tyrosine to generate neurotransmitters along with caffeine (see Herbal Voltage). You will be surprised to find what difference it can make. As we age, we fear losing that precious brain power. Protect it from oxidation damages with antioxidants and keep it well oiled (see Clear Thoughts, CognoBlend, EFA, Essential Fish Oil Concentrate). And our eyes also have special nutritional needs (see VISUtein). If keeping brain calm is your problem, give CalmPlex a good try before trying any harsh medicine.

  • Remove toxins from your liver, blood, lymph and bowel: The first step in any program designed to bring back your health must start with stimulating proper bowel activity, and cleansing and detoxifying the Intestines, Liver, Kidney, Bladder, Lungs, Blood, and even the Skin. Many Unicity products such as Cleanse Pack, Paraway Pack, and Dr. Berman's Mineral Mask are formulated for that purpose.

  • Don't let parasitic infections weaken your body and immune system: Humans can play "host" to over 100 kinds of parasites, and parasites can infect virtually every part of the human body. It often is the unsuspected underlying cause of ill health. Classic symptoms of parasite infections include: allergies, anemia, bloating, chronic fatigue, constipation, depressed immune function, diarrhea, eczema, enlarged lymph glands, excessive hunger, fever, flu symptoms, gas, grinding the teeth at night, hives, irritable bowel syndrome, irritability, ADD/ADHD, jaundice, joint and muscle aches or pains, nervousness, rashes, reddened eyes, sleep disturbances, weight gain, and weight loss. Weakened immune functions set you up for cancers and other serious illnesses. To keep your body parasite free, Unicity recommends everyone to do annual parasite cleanse using a comprehensive parasite cleanse product called Paraway Pack.

  • Take care of your digestive system
    • Supplement digestive enzymes and friendly intestinal bacteria: Unless the food and herbs are digested well, you cannot get nutrients from them. Aloe gel juice can sooth tired and irritated digestive system. You can take care of various digestion problems by supplementing digestive enzymes. Your body produces less enzymes and stomach acid as it ages. The lack of certain enzymes may be the underlining cause of heartburn, indigestion, and allergies for certain foods such as milk. Such food allergies are often the unsuspected cause of ADD/ADHD symptoms in children. Your stomach acid is the first line of defense against parasites and germs and it is a very bad idea to neutralize it.
      The friendly intestinal bacteria helps our bodies fight off illness, digest food, and remove waste. They also create essential vitamins and nutrients and controls yeast infections. But chlorine in our drinking water and certain commonly used medications can destroy this friendly bacteria. This upsets the balance in the intestinal system and allows the unfriendly bacteria to proliferate to a point where they may cause serious problems. After a round of antibiotics, be sure to replenish the friendly intestinal bacteria such as Probionic.

    • Supplement dietary fiber: You need both soluble and insoluble fiber to keep the stool soft and moving. When your colon is blocked, some nutrients cannot get absorbed while toxins accumulate and get absorbed back into your system. Use laxative if necessary, but don't overdo it or you will lose vital minerals with diarrhea. I eat brown rice and carrots and take LiFiber everyday and Nature's Tea (laxative) once in a while. Bios Life 2 Natural provides soluble fiber with vitamins and minerals to control cholesterol and blood sugar level.

  • Control your Weight
    Overweight is associated with many health risks. It is best to maintain normal body weight.

  • Drink plenty of clean water: You need to take 0.5oz. of water per 1 lb. of body weight (60oz./120lb=8cups.) or at least 5 cups to rinse your entire body internally, especially when body fat is being mobilized and burnt. To drink this much water while you are not sweating, you have to be drinking almost continuously throughout the day. Drink water instead of snacking and take a few deep breaths to feel refreshed.

  • Start slow with your herbs and supplements and cycle them: With the exception of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, you should introduce herbs and supplement products one at a time and start with a dosage lower than the standard dosage. Give your body time to adjust and slowly increase the amount up to where your condition requires (up to 3 times of standard in some cases). Depending on your condition and the type of herbs you use, you may experience symptoms intensify or some unpleasant symptoms such as skin rash while your body go through "healing crisis". If that happens, reduce the dosage or stop taking it for a while. Also, after about 3 month of continuous usage, your body may become less responsive and one month break may be needed to restore it. This is called cycling. During that break you can use other herbs and supplements to address the problem from different angle.
