Inflammation the Secret Killer
Transcript of Inflammation the Secret Killer
What can we do to
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Quest for the source of illness
Decrease inflammation and oxidative stress
(Organic Whole Foods)
deficiencies (Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Essential Fatty Acids)
(i.e. Probiotics, DEs)
(sleep hygiene, melatonin, hormones)

Probably the main antioxidant
Mainly known for tx of

Also recycles CoQ10, Vit C and E,

Increases Cardiac Output and Blood Flow
Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other
On Animal models:
Prevent cancers (skin and GI)
Prevents Obesity and Diabetes
Reverses plaque in the brain
and Functional Medicine
"This concept is so intriguing because it suggests a new and possibly much simpler way of warding off disease. Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer's and colon cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent all three."
TIME Magazine 2004

The problem is that we are exposed to
too much oxidative stress or too many toxins
and have poor antioxidant function

Anti-bacterial, and anti-allergen
Per Dr Mark Hyman "It's the most important molecule you need to
stay healthy and prevent disease
..., It's the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer's disease."

Potent anti-inflammatory (decreases CRP, NF-kappa B)
Columbia University School of Public Health estimates that
%95 of cancer is caused by diet and excessive toxins
80,000 toxic industrial chemicals found in our environment today
A CDC report resulted on 2,500 screenings of Americans for 148 industrial chemicals, and found
significant levels of the 148 on every single person tested
When does this exposure starts?
Study in 2004 in U.S. Hospitals:
Tested umbilical cord blood from 10
Tests revealed a total of 287 chemicals in the group.
Including pesticides, consumer product ingredients, and wastes from burning coal, gasoline, and garbage
we know that
180 cause cancer
in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests
900 drugs have been linked to liver damage
Even Over the Counter (OTCs)
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the #1 cause of acute

We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local
redness, heat, swelling and pain
. It is the cornerstone of the body's healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection.
But when it persists or has no purpose it damages the body and causes illness
Labs: Inflammatory markers, CRP- C-reactive-protein, TNF-A, IL-6, acute phase reactants, Sed Rate

So how do I raise Glutathione?
IV Glutathione (Magic Johnson ~$3,600/month)
Topical or sublingual decreases our own production
Most people had to combine several different supplements (
85%, ALA 30-50%, Milk Thistle 35%, Selenium)
Ice cold water- Raises it 35%
containing foods might help (garlic, onions and the cruciferous vegetables)
Combines Ribose and Cysteine
RiboCeine or Rib-Cys has been the subject of
peer-reviewed scientific studies that were funded by the NIH and other scientific institutions.
RiboCeine was developed after years of research by the renowned research scientist and medicinal chemist, Herbert T. Nagasawa, Ph.D.
Results in Liver
intracellular levels 300% above NAC
Is there a molecule/s
that would help with most of the root causes of illness?
What was I doing for prevention?
Anti- inflammatory diet,
AOAP (As Organic As Possible)
For Anti-aging, Cancer and chronic illness prevention:
Absorbable Multivitamins, Vit D,
Omega 3 (Fish oil, Krill, Flax)
Magnesium Malate, SAS, Cellgevity, ATP, Berberine,
Resveratrol, Turmeric, Quercetin, Alpha-lipoic Acid, Detox Shakes...

7 out of 10 deaths among Americans each year are from
Heart disease, cancer and stroke account for more than 50% of all deaths each year.

1 out of every 2 adults
– had at least one chronic illness.

Besides that we have:

we make it ourselves, but
Levels fall and regardless it lowers 10-15% per decade after 21yrs old
Not everything is ORAC:
Some Anti-Oxidants last
Some work only on Fat or Aqueous
Sulforaphane: One of the longest lasting antioxidants known (3 days)
There is also the Inflammation Factor
Among multiple other nutrients
The key is to get as much Variety as possible
The deeper we get the more complicated:
Isothiocyanates, Flavonoids, Plant alkaloids, Isoflavones, Tannins, Polyphenols, Anthocyanins, Carotenoids... Still discovering

Vit A, Bs, C and Vit E
