Have you noticed that some meals creates you bloating, gass, delay in you digestion?
Are you constantly constipated?
Even if you are not having obvious signs of digestive impairment you should begin considering the way you combine your foods!
Especially those who face digestive problems should take seriously the idea of how to combine their foods in each meal.
But lets start explaining the idea behind food combining…
The food combining system, as a whole, is simple and easy to understand. It logically evolved from the study of gastric physiology and the actions of enzymes and digestive juices. It is not what we eat, but what we digest and assimilate, that determines the nourishment our bodies receive. Food combining is based on the discovery that certain combinations of food may be digested with greater ease and efficiency than others.
Correct food combinations result in an immediate improvement in health by lightening the load of the digestive organs. Better nutrition is assured, and there is better digestion, less fermentation and putrefaction, more comfort, less distress and less gas. So-called food allergies often disappear as a result of proper food combining.
Foods and our body
Food is any substance which is eventually convertible into such end-products as tissues, body fluids, etc., and can be utilized by the organism in the performance of its functions. Foods help you when you are oxidized, contribute decisively to growth, maintenance and repair. They are capable of being stored within the body and produce no nutritionally significant toxic effects.
Nutrients in foods are chemical substances of known composition and structure, classified as carbohydrates (such as sugar, starch and glycogen); lipids (fats); proteins (amino acids linked together); salts (minerals); and vitamins, needed in small quantities (or, traces) by the body. In addition, foods contain indigestible materials—cellulose (fiber).
Water, oxygen and vitamins, together with proteins, carbohydrates, fats and minerals, form the constituents of the body—the blood, tissue, bones, organs, muscles and so forth. Foods must be taken into the digestive tract and prepared for use by the organism before their constituents may be used by the body.
BASIC PHILOSOPHY IN FOOD COMBINATION
Food combination theory is based on the functioning of enzymes. Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down foods into their smaller building blocks, in order to facilitate their absorption by the body.
Each digestive enzyme is specific in its action. It acts only upon one class of food substance. Each stage in the digestion of food requires the action of a different enzyme, and the various enzymes can perform their work efficiently only if the preceding work has been properly performed.
Body chemistry is, to a large extent, determined by the the food we eat. When certain foods are eaten regularly, the digestive enzymes and secretions are of a character to handle those foods. When the diet is altered, more and more of the digestive juices secreted will be of a character to digest the foods in the new diet, and less and less of the digestive juices will be of the character to digest the foods in the old diet.
The type of digestive juice fitted for the digestion of one type of food is of no value in digesting another type of food. Therefore, it is essential that food be taken in combinations that do not interfere with enzymatic action.
When two foods are eaten that have different or even opposite, digestive needs, the precise adjustment of digestive juices to meet requirements becomes impossible.
Digestive speed and efficiency vary with individuals and circumstances. However, certain general statements can be made:
- Simple carbs, or sugars, only require one step for digestion, which is why they digest faster. An enzyme in the lining of the small intestine transforms sucrose into glucose and fructose to then be absorbed in that one step. (eg Juices and Water: 20-30 minutes, Soups, Fruits, Vegetables or Smoothies: 30-45 minute)
- Complex carbs, or starches, require more steps to digest, and therefore digest more slowly than simple carbs. Complex carbs include starchy vegetables, legumes, whole-grain breads and cereals. The enzymes in saliva break complex carb molecules into maltose, which is a smaller and simpler molecule. Next, an enzyme in the small intestine’s lining splits maltose molecules into glucose molecules, which is then absorbed into the bloodstream. The blood transports glucose to the liver, where is is either used for energy or stored for later use. (eg Grains, Starches: 2-3 hours)
- Protein requires more digestion time in the stomach than carbs. Giant protein molecules are in foods like beans, eggs and meat. Because the molecules are so large, it takes a longer process to break them down before they can be used as fuel. An enzyme in the stomach begins to digest protein. Protein molecules then move into the small intestine, where several more enzymes break down the molecules into amino acids. The smaller amino acid molecules pass through the walls of the small intestine to get into the bloodstream. When you run out of the energy you got from glucose, which started as carbs, your body turns to protein or fats for energy. This process is known as gluconeogenesis. To make more glucose from protein, the body converts amino acids into glucose to use for fuel. (eg Beans, Poultry, Meat, or Fish: more than three hours)
- Fats take more time to digest than carbs or proteins. Fats pass through the stomach and into the small intestine as other nutrients do. The body breaks fat molecules into fatty acids and glycerowhich the villi in the small intestine can absorb. The fatty acids and glycerol travel to areas of the body for storage in cells or for use as energy. Your body can only use about five percent of absorbed fat for fuel by converting it to glucose. Your liver absorbs the rest of the glycerol and uses it to assist in breaking down glucose for energy.
- Some foods may take five or six hours or more to leave the stomach. Some examples are combination starch/protein foods like legumes (including beans), grains, cooked cabbage and flesh foods.
Most digestion occurs in the stomach and small intestine. Digestion, especially starch digestion, actually begins in the mouth, with mastication and insalivation of the food. This sends the proper signals for the release of the digestive juices suited to the character of the food eaten. Digestive juices are present in the saliva and in the gastric secretions of about five million microscopic glands in the walls of the stomach.
Food Sequencing Is also very important: Organize your meals
A well ordered meal allows your digestive system to handle digestion more smoothly, with less time and more absorption of nutrients. A well ordered meal is one in which you introduce different foods systematically.
You should start by introducing the easiest or quickest to digest foods first and work your way up to the more complex. By doing this you keep foods that digest more easily flowing through your digestive system and prevent a “food traffic jam”.
Denser and less liquid foods are harder to digest and take longer to pass completely through the digestive system.
Think of your digestive system as a highway; if the slower vehicles are allowed to go first, the result will be a traffic jam. If the slower vehicles follow the faster vehicles you’re highway will run smoothly and efficiently.
It is important to note that when choosing a beverage, milk products are hard to digest and should be taken alone. The easiest type of beverage to digest is water or one high in water content.
Finally after 10 years I was about to test myself to something new. I visited a nutritionist in April of 2006. You can contact him through his website here. I was in no good condition at all. He was specialized in otolaryngology for quite some years before he began to turn his interest into alternative medicines such as homeopathy, acupuncture, Nutrition etc. He has been outspeaking for many years that he could no longer help his patients with drugs or his lance. I will never forget his first question to me: "First of all do you believe that everything someone eats drinks or breaths is very important for his health?"
His method round nutrition is based on a way of finding out about food intolerance and food allergy which is called Vega Allergy Testing comined with kinesiology, energy testing. He also examines which organs inside your body are weak searching what is going on in a mollecular level. For example if you suffer from MS, insufficiency to your immune system will appear clearly according to his method or weaknesses to other parts or systems of your body acoording your symptoms or not. Besides you are subjected to live blood analysis. An examination which helps to exclude important conclusions (eg the candida fungus which flows in your blood, the tolerance of your blood cells etc). The first visit lasted 4 hours! I was informed about Multiple Sclerosis in a very different way. I learnt about the worst enemies of MS. I was given to search through some new information such as the Klenner’s Protocol for MS. My blood was full of candida and my cells seemed really weakened.
I told him what every doctor claimed until then: That the cause of my problem was unknown. He claimed that this wasn’ t right and that MS is a multifactorial syndrome cause by many parameters . In my situation wrong nutrition, Nutrition, wrong medicines, accumulation of Toxins, vaccination stress, Acidulus Enviroment etc. The antidotes to the pathologic findings were vitamins, several supplements, proper nutrition, drinking clean and Fresh Water, whatever composes a healthy life. In all cases a compound therapy is necessary for such a complicated syndrome. Before that I had tried homeopathy and eventhough I was relatively helped it was not enough. I was really amazed by the power of my doctor’ s arguments, even though I was reluctant at first and I was trying to challenge him in every word. I was examined thoroughly and the results showed a very tired organism. The first diet I had to follow was very strict. I left the consulting room full of thoughts. I had to stop the drug treatment I had followed for years. Otherwise, there would be no result. I was afraid and anxious to see what will follow. Finally, I decided to move on. A new way of life was ahead of me. Within a month diarrheas began and my doctor told me this was encouraging because this showed I reacted to the new treatment. Toxins finally begun to discard. The second month I felt my legs much more stable and I gained balance. My memory was much stronger and I felt full of energy. Tremulousness wasn’ t troubling me while I was walking and this made me feel confident. As time went by I felt even better. I drove my bike without being afraid and I didn’ t want to go to bed early anymore because I felt alive again. Sex activity became unexpectedly strong. Numbness in my legs was not so intense and faded day by day. Today I can much more easy bend my leg and walk much more normal. I have no sleep problems except the days I feel really anxious about something but this happens to anyone. I visit the toilet everyday(!) and this is unbelievable and crucial for me after all these years. The second time I visited my nutritionist (July 2006 – after three months) he was surprised as well. He did not expect all this improvement so fast. The same test I had the first time was much more promising. The improvement was obvious. I went the best vacation I have ever had with my girlfriend in the summer of 2006. I will never forget it. I felt so much stronger. This time I was ready to eat more foods. It happens very often. Your organism tolerates some substances again after a period of certain diet. I changed some vitamins and supplements according to new data. This time I would use intramuscular Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. After about 5 months period my main goal is not just to get better and better but, why not, to go symptom free! There are extremely few pathologic reactions nature cannot reverse. Besides, I believe to my self, to my doctor. I’ve never lost hope regardless of the seriousness of my situation. It took me ten years to finally discover that MS is not incurable (…See more in personal stories 1 and 2). I had never came across to such a statement. I believe this is the only way not just to deal with MS but to totally defeat it. And I promise you, I will but before that I will share with you every second of this experience because I need it and you need it. I hope you the best. I was now ready on September of 2006 to take a much more thorough test on a much wider range of foods. Here you can see details about my Anti-Candida, Anti-Fungus based Diet. I follow it until now. During this period I was given some procain injectons in my tonsils. According to my doctor the stress I felt on my Knees was because of a block of flow of energy in tonsils! I’m better now. After 6months I must admit that my present situation has nothing to do with my previous state (before 6 months). Ofcourse my improvement lately is slower I dare say but this is absolutely normal because it’s not the same when you first begin a new treatment and after a period of time. I’m feeling my body fighting hard to heel. For example there are short periods of time where Constipation Problems occur and affect my general situation. I will visit my nutritionist on the 23 of December. Until then…
The truth is that it has not been precisely justified how the combination of the constituents of the protocol works for MS. Scientific research, profit-oriented, CRAB – centered and guided, is not able and above all it doesn’t aim at providing reasonable responses. Nevertheless, one can make several hypotheses about each suggested constituent by analyzing its properties and draw secure conclusions based on scientific research.
Fish Oil has known anti inflammation effects in blood and tissues. Also the lack of Vitamin D , as it becomes obvious through a series of studies, plays a more and more important role to the incidence of MS due to the role it plays in the development of the person from very young ages. Vitamins C, E play a very important role against the generation of free radicals. Oxidation always affects MS’ers much more than healthier people. Relevant examples, positive for human health, are found for every constituent of the protocol and especially for the Central Nervous or the myoskeletal System which are crucial for neurological disorders or the myoskeletal (see B 100 Tablet, B12 – methylcobalamine, Calcium – Magnesium etc).
Additionally to the above, there is a very important field the protocol contributes to, being decisive for MS patients due to their vulnerability in the Central Nervous System: heavy metals excretion. MS patients have a sensitive CNS with all its consequences. The progress of the disease usually causes problems in bowel function (constipation, diarrhea) that is a main detoxification means. This flaw makes them more vulnerable to a series of dangers in comparison to healthier people, such as heavy metals, a subject under discussion in this article.
DANGERS IN THE MARKET
The procedure of heavy metals excretion is generally called chelation.
There is a variety of products or kits in the market and several suggestions on this procedure but we‘ve better not to trust them if we are not perfectly sure. It is suggested that in any case you should consult a knowledgeable physician about this subject; this is why we will not try to describe or suggest such products. The reason for our being so cautious is that this procedure may become dangerous, especially to constipated patients.
In order for the heavy metals to leave the body they first have to detach from the healthy tissues and organs they are stuck on, followingly they bind with substances helping their passing to the intestine and finally they are expelled. The excretion of heavy metals through the intestine is the main kind of detoxification from heavy metals. An important organ of detoxification is the skin through sweating. It becomes obvious that accumulation of toxins in the intestine after a successful chelation may cause more serious problems in case they are not fully excreted from the body.
Another reason is that the methods are numerous and there is not one single way for all patients. Many strong substances are used for this purpose and it is only under the supervision of a specialist that one should use them and NEVER TRY IT ALONE.
Finally, there is always the danger to overload the body if many different substances are taken besides the protocol without medical suggestion and supervision.
For the above cited reasons we will discuss only the substances suggested in the protocol and some other natural – vegetable very mild choices one can incorporate in everyday life and have very good results without danger.
FREE RADICALS AND HEAVY METALS
When free radicals come in touch with one of these tinny pieces of toxic metals, not only one new free radical is generated but a chain of millions of free radicals.
Free radicals exist in all persons, heavy metals as well. They move around several points and organs and somewhere on their way they meet again a new tinny piece of toxic metal generating new free radicals in a minute and so on.
Thus we should try to:
1. Find ways to reduce as much as possible the generation of new millions of free radicals generated in our body by the binding of metals and free radicals through chain reactions (Vitamin C, E and other antioxidants mentioned below help to that)
2. Prevent these free radicals from coming in touch with the heavy metals in our bodies in the first place.
CHELATION THROUGH THE PROTOCOL
One important contribution of the protocol is that it helps fight heavy metals, whose toxicity alone is known that it can cause symptoms similar to the ones of MS. On the other hand you know from this site that heavy metals is one of the main factors of MS.
Tips that help:
Try to consume proteins all the time, mainly animal (excpet pork which is very fatty) but vegetarian as well (eg sea algaue) according to the protocol. Protein amino-acids contain sulphur that highly facilitates the detoxification procedure. Avoid any proteinic supplement of unreliable origin.
Try to maintain 2 to 3 bowel movements per day. If there is a constipation problem read here. Remember that 90% of the mercury (a heavy metal known to be one of the most toxic ones) is expelled in our stools.
Don’t miss your daily injection of Thiamine (Β1)(1): Thiamine, being a main injectable vitamin in the protocol, has been found to play an important role in the confrontation of heavy metals (arsenic, lead, mercury etc). Especially mercury and lead compete with Thiamine absorbing the Sulphur contained in it. Sulphur is known to act as a magnet for heavy metals.
Riboflavine (vitamin Β2 contained in Β100): Also contains sulphur.
Vitamin Β6 (Pyridoxine – contained in Β100): Necessary to the metabolic procedure that transforms methionine into cysteine and followingly to glutathione (amino-acid transformed into strong anioxidative means).
Magnesium: Metals such as Magnesium are necessary to the optimal functioning of our immune system, as much as to hundreds of enzymic systems of prime importance for human health. In this way foods are more easily absorbed without irritating the digestive track that plays a crucial role to heavy metals excretion.
Take your axntioxidants every day: All antioxidants in the protocol (Vitamin C(2), E, Beta Carotene-Vitamin Α, Selenium(3)) including Thiamine, play an irreplaceable role to the fight against new free radicals being multiplied in the presence of heavy metals.
Drink alkaline water.
Exercise according to your condition, but do it systematically and under supervision. Sweating is a good way to excrete toxins and the skin is one of the main detoxification organs.
For additional help you should know that:
There are lots of other substances and ways to fight heavy metal accumulation or at least they claim to do so. As cited above, the protocol itself caters for that purpose. Nevertheless, if you think that you need more help, here are some more very mild ways:
You can take Chlorella. Chlorella is a species of algae that helps remove toxic metals from the connective tissue of our body. It contains high levels of chlorophyll which is one of the most pure and strong foods on earth. One cannot take excessive amount of Chlorella. Check your dose by trials, starting from a low dose and increasing gradually every 2-3 days.
Include garlic in your regiment if you are not allergic or intolerant to it, not in supplement form but in fresh natural form. In this way you enhance the Sulphur reserves of your body. 2-3 cloves per day for as long as your program lasts sound like a good idea. Crush the cloves so as to set their active ingredients free.
Start taking MSM (4). MSM is a kind of Sulphur acting on the membranes of the cells and thus helping your body to get rid of mercury.
Start using coriander (5). Coriander will contribute to the movement of mercury from the tissues, so as Chlorella will be able to bind with it and guide it out of the body through bowel movements. Coriander is found in most health food stores, super markets or shops selling spices. You can also add it to vegetable juices (being an excellent source of metals such as Calcium and Magnesium). Coriander alone is not enough to totally remove heavy metals from the body.
During your heavy metal detoxification, make sure that you take your daily vitamins and basic metals such as Calcium and Magnesium.
(1)Lead and mercury are strongly anti thiamine, binding to the sulphur entity in thiamine.
Heavy metal poisoning is typically characterized by symptoms common with thiamine deficiency since metals, such as arsenic or lead, block a crucial metabolic step converting thiamine to its coenzyme form. Omar Alvarado, Thomas J. Fellers and Michael W. Davidson

The facts of these two great articles are from Dr Mercola’s website. They provide evidence concerning the new so called “vaccine against the swine flue”.
The ingredients, the dangers and many opinions from scientists…
“The United States is set to receive as many as 600 million doses of swine flu vaccine, enough for 300 million Americans. Health care workers are one of four “top priority” groups that stand to receive the swine flu vaccine first (the other three are pregnant women, children with chronic health conditions, and adults with chronic health conditions), under the premise that they will be more likely to be exposed to the virus and need to stay healthy to provide care.
Well, the fact that less than half of nearly 400 hospital workers questioned planned to accept the swine flu shot is very telling, though not surprising considering the majority of health care workers also refuse the seasonal flu shot. The most common reason given for refusal, and rightfully so, was potential side effects, followed by questions about the vaccine’s efficacy.
Even among a focus group of 85 people, very few said they would get vaccinated in the event of a pandemic. Again, many noted the risks involved in using newly developed vaccines that are rushed to market as a primary concern. Many also believed, correctly I might add, that they could protect themselves through their own behavior, including:
Staying away from crowded places and sick people
Eating well to maintain their immune system
These sentiments are right on, as it is the health of your immune system, which is primarily controlled by your lifestyle habits, that will keep you healthy during a flu outbreak. A vaccine is not the answer, and in fact can cause many other health problems.
Fortunately, this site, and many others seeking to shed light on this deceptive manipulation about the swine flu, are making a huge impact and people are refusing to believe the government propaganda.
Vaccine safety advocates everywhere are beginning to make a serious dent. According to a recent Fox News poll, the majority of people in the U.S. now believe the swine flu vaccine may be deadlier than the actual virus.
Why the Swine Flu Vaccine is a Disaster Waiting to Happen
Count yourself lucky that you still have a choice about whether or not to receive a swine flu vaccine … as I would no sooner choose to get this shot than I would run through a field full of landmines.
For starters, the swine flu vaccine contains dangerous additives such as mercury and squalene, which has been linked to the development of autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Further, senior neurologists sent a confidential letter to the UK government warning that the swine flu vaccine has been linked to a deadly nerve disease known as Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). GBS attacks the lining of your nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.
German lung specialist Wolfgang Wodarg has also come out about even more potential health risks associated with the swine flu vaccine. According to Dr. Wodarg, the swine flu vaccine contains animal cancer cells, and there’s no data indicating whether or not this may cause an allergic reaction when injected.
It also raises questions about the risk of contracting cancer.
Likewise, Johannes Löwer, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute, believes the side effects of the vaccine can be far worse than the actual swine flu virus, which typically causes only mild symptoms, requiring just a few days in bed.
Swine Flu is Typically NOT Serious
Media reports sensationalizing the “death toll” that could come from the swine flu are just that: sensationalized.
As you may already know, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) consistently claim the seasonal flu kills about 36,000 Americans each year. After investigating that figure, it has been found to be a gross exaggeration based on flawed data compilation, but still, the swine flu has claimed FAR fewer lives than the seasonal flu in any given year, and no draconian measures have ever been taken to curtail the seasonal flu.
Dr. Wodarg told the German press that the widespread fear of the pandemic was an “orchestration,” stating:
“It is great business for the pharmaceutical industry. Swine flu is not very different from normal flu. On the contrary, if you look at the number of cases it is nothing compared to a normal flu outbreak.”
Before you accept a vaccination, or allow your child to receive one, it’s always wise to examine the benefits versus the risks. In the case of swine flu, most often the symptoms are mild and resolve on their own. But no one yet knows what side effects could come from taking the swine flu vaccine.
Fortunately, for now the vaccine is still voluntary but there has been talk that it may become mandatory. For a great review of why mandatory vaccinations are unconstitutional and illegal, I recommend the book “Horrors of Vaccination Exposed and Illustrated; Petition to the President to Abolish Compulsory Vaccination in the Army and Navy,” by Charles M. Higgins.
Written in 1920, the book is now in the public domain and can be read and downloaded for free by clicking this link. It discusses the dangers of vaccinations, the cover-ups of vaccine deaths, and explains your constitutional rights and the medical trends that are stripping those rights away, and is every bit as relevant today as it was when it was first written.
If you prefer a hardcopy version, you can also purchase the book, as it has recently been republished.
Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed
According to Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, your children should be the first target for mass swine flu vaccinations when school starts this fall. [i]
This is a ridiculous assumption for many reasons, not to mention extremely high risk.
In Australia, where the winter season has begun, Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon is reassuring parents the swine flu is no more dangerous than regular seasonal flu. “Most people, including children, will experience very mild symptoms and recover without any medical intervention,” she said.[ii]
Sydney-based immunization specialist Robert Booy predicts swine flu might be fatal to about twice as many children in the coming year as regular influenza. Booy estimates 10-12 children could die from the H1N1 virus, compared with the five or six regular flu deaths seen among children in an average year in Australia.[iii]
“Cure the Disease, Kill the Patient”
Less than 100 children in the U.S. die each year from seasonal flu viruses.[iv] If we use Australia’s math, a very rough estimate would be another 100 children could potentially die of swine flu in the United States in the coming year.
If children are the first target group in the U.S. per Sebelius, that means we’re about to inject around 75 million children with a fast tracked vaccine containing novel adjuvants, including dangerous squalene, to prevent perhaps 100 deaths.
I’m not overlooking the tragedy of the loss of even one child to an illness like the H1N1 flu virus. But there can be no argument that unnecessary mass injection of millions of children with a vaccine containing an adjuvant known to cause a host of debilitating autoimmune diseases is a reckless, dangerous plan.
Why are Vaccinations Dangerous?
The presumed intent of a vaccination is to help you build immunity to potentially harmful organisms that cause illness and disease. However, your body’s immune system is already designed to do this in response to organisms which invade your body naturally.
Most disease-causing organisms enter your body through the mucous membranes of your nose, mouth, pulmonary system or your digestive tract – not through an injection.
These mucous membranes have their own immune system, called the IgA immune system. It is a different system from the one activated when a vaccine is injected into your body.
Your IgA immune system is your body’s first line of defense. Its job is to fight off invading organisms at their entry points, reducing or even eliminating the need for activation of your body’s immune system.
When a virus is injected into your body in a vaccine, and especially when combined with an immune adjuvant like squalene, your IgA immune system is bypassed and your body’s immune system kicks into high gear in response to the vaccination.
Injecting organisms into your body to provoke immunity is contrary to nature, and vaccination carries enormous potential to do serious damage to your health.
And as if Vaccines Weren’t Dangerous Enough on Their Own …
… imagine them turbocharged.
The main ingredient in a vaccine is either killed viruses or live ones that have been attenuated (weakened and made less harmful).
Flu vaccines can also contain a number of chemical toxins, including ethylene glycol (antifreeze), formaldehyde, phenol (carbolic acid) and even antibiotics like Neomycin and streptomycin.
In addition to the viruses and other additives, many vaccines also contain immune adjuvants like aluminum and squalene.
The purpose of an immune adjuvant added to a vaccine is to enhance (turbo charge) your immune response to the vaccination. Adjuvants cause your immune system to overreact to the introduction of the organism you’re being vaccinated against.
Adjuvants are supposed to get the job done faster (but certainly not more safely), which reduces the amount of vaccine required per dose, and the number of doses given per individual.
Less vaccine required per person means more individual doses available for mass vaccination campaigns. Coincidentally, this is exactly the goal of government and the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make millions from their vaccines.
Will There Be Immune Adjuvants in Swine Flu Vaccines?
The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.
The adjuvant? Squalene.
According to Meryl Nass, M.D., an authority on the anthrax vaccine,
“A novel feature of the two H1N1 vaccines being developed by companies Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline is the addition of squalene-containing adjuvants to boost immunogenicity and dramatically reduce the amount of viral antigen needed. This translates to much faster production of desired vaccine quantities.”[v]
Novartis’s proprietary squalene adjuvant for their H1N1 vaccine is MF59. Glaxo’s is ASO3. MF59 has yet to be approved by the FDA for use in any U.S. vaccine, despite its history of use in other countries.
Per Dr. Nass, there are only three vaccines in existence using an approved squalene adjuvant. None of the three are approved for use in the U.S.
What Squalene Does to Rats
Oil-based vaccination adjuvants like squalene have been proved to generate concentrated, unremitting immune responses over long periods of time.[vi]
A 2000 study published in the American Journal of Pathology demonstrated a single injection of the adjuvant squalene into rats triggered “chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation,” also known as rheumatoid arthritis.[vii]
The researchers concluded the study raised questions about the role of adjuvants in chronic inflammatory diseases.
What Squalene Does to Humans
Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.
The difference between “good” and “bad” squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.
Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.[viii]
Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene.[ix] MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets.[x]
The Department of Defense made every attempt to deny that squalene was indeed an added contaminant in the anthrax vaccine administered to Persian Gulf war military personnel – deployed and non-deployed – as well as participants in the more recent Anthrax Vaccine Immunization Program (AVIP).
However, the FDA discovered the presence of squalene in certain lots of AVIP product. A test was developed to detect anti-squalene antibodies in GWS patients, and a clear link was established between the contaminated product and all the GWS sufferers who had been injected with the vaccine containing squalene.
A study conducted at Tulane Medical School and published in the February 2000 issue of Experimental Molecular Pathology included these stunning statistics:
“ … the substantial majority (95%) of overtly ill deployed GWS patients had antibodies to squalene. All (100%) GWS patients immunized for service in Desert Shield/Desert Storm who did not deploy, but had the same signs and symptoms as those who did deploy, had antibodies to squalene.
In contrast, none (0%) of the deployed Persian Gulf veterans not showing signs and symptoms of GWS have antibodies to squalene. Neither patients with idiopathic autoimmune disease nor healthy controls had detectable serum antibodies to squalene. The majority of symptomatic GWS patients had serum antibodies to squalene.”[xi]
According to Dr. Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., a retired principle research scientist for the government of Australia:
“… this adjuvant [squalene] contributed to the cascade of reactions called “Gulf War Syndrome,” documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War.
The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia, lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Raynaud’s phenomenon, Sjorgren’s syndrome, chronic diarrhoea, night sweats and low-grade fevers.”[xii]
Post Vaccination Follow-Up Might as Well Be Non-Existent
There is virtually no science to support the safety of vaccine injections on your long-term health or the health of your children. Follow-up studies last on average about two weeks, and look only for glaring injuries and illnesses.
Autoimmune disorders like those seen in Gulf War Syndrome frequently take years to diagnose due to the vagueness of early symptoms. Complaints like headaches, fatigue and chronic aches and pains are symptoms of many different illnesses and diseases.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for vaccine purveyors and proponents to look seriously at the long-term health consequences of their vaccination campaigns.

[xii]Adverse Effects of Adjuvants in Vaccines, by Viera Scheibner, Ph.D., 2000
Some of them such cobalt, copper, manganese are required in small amounts but generally accumulation of Heavy Metals as a whole can lead to a number of serious illnesses because of their extremely toxic effects. There are some heavy metals which have no known vital or beneficial effect on organisms such as mercury , lead, cadmium, aluminum, arsenic etc.
There are hundreds of sources of these metals and if someone realize them he will assume that he cannot touch or eat a wide range of materials or foods correspondingly.
It’s not exactly like that of course. There are indeed sources which are extremely dangerous. Some of them are amalgam fillings (the black fillings in our teeth which contain mercury), batteries (contain mercury), plastic (bags etc), several pesticides (contain mercury), smoke or tobacco (contains nickel, aluminum), fishes such swordfish or tuna from the atlantic or seafood from coastal waters, birth control pills (elevate cooper levels in the body), pencils (contain lead), processed food which may contain each one of the above, several kinds of toothpastes, cosmetics even the polluted air we breath. And thousands more…
As for the sideffects there are much more and can vary. Very few of them are: Headache, allergies, dyslexia, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, numbness, blindness, hypothyroid, cardiovascular disease, immune suppression, mental problems, chronic fatigue, memory loss, liver dysfunction, schizophrenia, coordination loss, psychosis, weight loss, thymus, insomnia, constipation, sexual activity problems, cancer, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, hepatitis, anorexia, tremors, high cholesterol, damage to nerve cells, nerve fiber degeneration, dizziness, autism, migraines, high blood pressure, muscle pain, weakness, hyperactivity, stoke, arthritis even sudden infant death syndrome.
Heavy metals have a very low dissolve rate. All the above are a reality. A reality which can be dealt with according to our knowledge. Of course it’s not always up to us.
It is extremely unlikely for someone to be completely free of heavy metals. The most common I would say is mercury (a leak from amalgam feelings) but there are and more unique situations of toxic effects to nickel (even to coins).
1. Remove the soonest possible the amalgam feelings from your teeth (if you have any).If your dentist still uses it then change your dentist. Be sure that during the removal an air-extractor is used (because of the leak). It would be good to prefere a dental clinic which offers a modern equipment of discarding these toxic substances.
In cases which there is only one feeling or all the feelings are of the same quality and company, there is still danger since something metallic enters our mouth (spoons, forks etc) because the same results occur.
A leak can also take place while a breach is created due to chewing or the wrong shift of a tooth towards the feeling (eg a wisdom-tooth).
2. Seek for the right examination and find out the levels of heavy metals in your organism from a specialist. Avoid someone who will claim that “you are overreacting”. Inform your dentist with this: Safe Removal of Amalgam Fillings
Also inform your doctor how to diagnose heavy metals easily.

3. Definitely avoid wrong nutrition (fishes from the Atlantic Ocean such as swordfish and tuna) bad habbits such as smoking.
5. Watch very carefully whatever you buy. Prefer cosmetics, shampoos, perfumes, toothpastes from pharmacies or stores with healthy products. Don’t use pesticides!

7. There is a plethora of herbs, homeopathic medicine and others (generally known as heavy metal chelators) which help in the detoxication of heavy metals such as selenium, B vitamins, Zinc etc.
Οι πηγές τους είναι εκατοντάδες και αν κανείς τις δει αναλυτικά μπορεί να θεωρήσει ότι δεν μπορεί να αγγίζει ή να τρώει σχεδόν τίποτα!
Δεν είναι βέβαια ακριβώς έτσι. Υπάρχουν πράγματι πηγές που είναι εξαιρετικά βλαβερές όπως τα μαύρα από αμάλγαμα σφραγίσματα στα δόντια μας (περιέχουν υδράργυρο), οι μπαταρίες (περιέχουν υδράργυρο εννοείται κατά τη διαρροή), διάφορα εντομοκτόνα (περιέχουν υδράργυρο), ο καπνός (περιέχει νικέλιο, αλουμίνιο), ειδικά είδη ψαριών του ατλαντικού όπως ο ξιφίας και ο τόνος (μπορεί να περιέχουν υδράργυρο), τα αντισυλληπτικά χάπια (ανεβάζουν τα επίπεδα χαλκού), τα μολύβια (περιέχουν μόλυβδο), το πλαστικό (σακούλες κλπ), το επεξεργασμένο φαγητό που μπορεί να περιέχει καθένα από τα παραπάνω, διαφόρων ειδών οδοντόπαστες ή καλλυντικά ακόμη και ο αέρας που αναπνέουμε λόγω της μόλυνσης. Ανάλογα βέβαια με το μέρος στο οποίο ζούμε.
Όσο για τις παρενέργειες είναι πολύ περισσότερες και μπορεί να ποικίλλουν. Πολύ λίγες από αυτές είναι: Πονοκέφαλος, αλλεργίες, δυσλεξία, κατάθλιψη, τύφλωση, υποθυρεοειδισμός, χρόνια κόπωση, απώλεια μνήμης, μουδιάσματα, δυσλειτουργία στο συκώτι, σχιζοφρένεια, επικύνδινη απώλεια βάρους, θυμός, καρκίνος, δυσκοιλιότητα, ηπατίτιδα, Πάρκινσον, ανοσοκαταστολή, απώλεια ισορροπίας, ψύχωση, αποσύνθεση μυϊκού ιστού, πρόωρο γήρας, ναυτία, μείωση της σεξουαλικής δραστηριότητας, δυσλειτουργία στην πέψη, ανορεξία, υψηλή χοληστερόλη, ζημιά σε νευρικα κύτταρα, ζάλη, μυοπάθεια, Σκλήρυνση Κατά Πλάκας, διαβήτης, αυτισμός, υπερκινητικότητα, ημικρανίες, πίεση, εγκεφαλικό, πόνος στα κόκαλα, αρθρίτιδα… έως και ξαφνικό θάνατο!
Τα βαρέα μέταλλα έχουν πολύ μικρό βαθμό διαλυτότητας.
Τα παραπάνω είναι μια πραγματικότητα. Έχοντας τη σωστή αντιμετώπιση όμως μπορούμε να την αντιμετωπίσουμε στο μέτρο πάντα που μας αναλογεί. Είναι από εξαιρετικά σπάνιο έως απίθανο κάποιος να μην έχει προσβληθεί περισσότερο ή λιγότερο από κάποιο τέτοιου είδους μέταλλο. Το πιο διαδεδομένο είναι ο υδράργυρος(διαρροή από τα σφραγίσματα στα δόντια) όμως υπάρχουν και πιο εξειδικευμένες περιπτώσεις τοξικών αντιδράσεων στο νικέλιο (ακόμα και στα νομίσματα).
1. Αφαιρέστε το συντομότερο τα μαύρα σφραγίσματα από τα δόντια. Αν ο γιατρός σας τα χρησιμοποιεί ακόμα αλάξτε οδοντίατρο. Να είστε σίγουροι κατά την αφαίρεση ότι χρησιμοποιείται απορροφητήρας και απομονωτήρας ενώ καλό είναι να υποστηρίξετε το ιατρείο που διαθέτει σύγχρονο εξοπλισμό αποβολής των τοξικών ουσιών. Προσοχή!!! Είναι ΛΑΘΟΣ ότι κατά τη διάρκεια που είναι στο στόμα μας τα σφραγίσματα δεν είναι επικύνδινα επειδή δεν υπάρχει διαρροή!!!
Όσοι ισχυρίζονται κάτι τέτοιο, ακόμα και γιατροί, ΔΕΝ ΓΝΩΡΙΖΟΥΝ!
Σε περίπτωση που υπάρχουν πολλά τέτοια σφραγίσματα (πάνω από ένα) τότε επειδή αυτά είναι συνήθως διαφορετικής περιεκτικότητας στο μέταλλο δημιουργούνται μέσα στο στόμα δυο σημεία με διαφορετικό δυναμικό. Διαφορετικό δυναμικό σημαίνει εξίσωσή του μέσω κίνησης φορτίων. Αυτό επιτυγχάνεται μέσω του σάλιου, που είναι αγώγιμο υλικό. Δημιουργείται λοιπόν ροή φορτίου άρα και μικρό ρεύμα. Έχουμε ουσιαστικά μια μπαταρία στο στόμα(!!!) και αποδεδειγμένα διαρροή λόγω της μετακίνησης των φορτίων.
Σε περίπτωση που υπάρχει ένα σφράγισμα υπάρχει κίνδυνος αφού κάτι μεταλλικό στο στόμα (όπως πιρούνι, κουτάλι κλπ) δημιουργεί τα ίδια αποτελέσματα.
Διαρροή μπορεί να υπάρξει και κατά τη δημιουργία ρήγματος λόγω της μάσησης ή της λάθος μετακίνησης κάποιου δοντιού προς τα συγκεκριμένα σημεία (πχ κάποιου φρονιμήτη).
2. Eπιδιώξτε την κατάλληλη εξέταση των επιπέδων των μετάλλων αυτών από ειδικό και όχι από κάποιον που δεν γνωρίζει πως θα ψάξει και σας συμβουλεύει “να μην είστε υπερβολικοί”.
3. Αποφύγετε τις λάθος τροφές (ψάρια ατλαντικού όπως ο ξιφίας, ο τόνος) τις κακές συνήθειες όπως το κάπνισμα.
4. Ανακυκλώστε προϊόντα που είναι ιδιαίτερα τοξικά και για το περιβάλλον (όπως οι μπαταρίες) – μην έρχεστε σε επαφή.
5. Δείτε προσεκτικά τι αγοράζετε. Προτιμάτε καλλυντικά, σαμπουάν, αρώματα, οδοντόπαστες από φαρμακεία και μαγαζιά με υγιεινά προϊόντα.
6. Υπαρχει πληθώρα βοτάνων, ομοιοπαθητικών και γενικότερα ουσιών που βοηθούν στην αποτοξίνωση από βαριά μέταλλα όπως το σελήνιο, η σειρά βιταμινών Β και πολλά άλλα.
