In 1984, naltrexone, an opioid or endorphin blocker  was approved by the FDA for use for treatment of addiction.  In 1985 Dr. Bernard Bahari discovered that small doses had a short term block and the body responded by an abundant release of endorphins, the body's own feel good hormones.  He applied this treatment to autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis.  At a very low point in her health, Linda Elsegood discovered this treatment and has reversed most of her severe symptoms.  She determined to bring this therapy to everyone who needs it.  She established the LDN Reach Trust and maintains an active website offering the research, practitioner and pharmacy finders, LDN radio, conferences, webinars and books....

Dr. Robert Lustig is a Professor Emeritus from the University of California, San Francisco in Pediatric Endocrinology (www.robertlustig.com).  He observed the terrible toll that the processed food industry has taken on the health of our children and ourselves.  These foods lure us to pleasure instead of happiness, he writes.  He is the author of "Fat Chance" and his latest book "Metabolical: The Lures and Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition and Modern Medicine". Here's a quote from his website:  Sugar is now the most ubiquitous foodstuff worldwide, and has been added to virtually every processed food, limiting consumer choice and the ability to avoid it. Approximately 80 percent of the 6,000,000 consumer packaged foods in the United States have added caloric sweeteners.... Read more

There is a disconnect in medicine, Dr. Kaufman, an otolaryngologist, tells Corinne and Carol and the audience. A constant sinus drainage problem which causes constant nighttime coughing is in reality a gastrointestinal problem. It is originating with gastric reflux.  She relates to us how she remedies this in her practice but also zeros in on practical tips for us to apply on our own.  She says since this occurs in gaps in medical specialties, physicians cannot identify and treat the root of the problem....

 Inside the cell potassium is concentrated while outside of our cells sodium predominates. This uneven concentration of potassium and sodium creates a differential in charge just like a battery works.  Low potassium contributes to many chronic diseases and creates body signs such as low energy, missed words, matting eyes and difficulty in focusing, lack of lustre and shine in the hair and a straw like appearance, feelings of a heavy body and much more.  Additional posts in Facebook at Take Charge of Your Health with Corinne and Carol will provide a recipe for potassium broth and a more complete list of deficiencies and disease states....

 Dr. Minkoff enlightens us to the problems that face us when we cannot break down dietary protein to its smallest parts - amino acids.  Our bodies absorb amino acids and use those to make all the unique protein molecules used in our bodies.  We have an estimated 50,000 unique protein molecules.  We need these for all the enzymes in our bodies, all our immune system components, all of our body and bone structure and much more.  Ironically, in order to break down protein in our digestion system, we require the enzymes made of protein. Listen to how we can break the catch 22 and learn how proteins and amino acids function.... Read more
