Are hand sanitizers dangerous to us and our pets?

With the Covid protocols seeing hand sanitizers flying off the shelf of stores, we have to wonder what effect the germ killers they contain has on our health and our pets.  They are basically alcohol based and this can, in people, cause alcohol poisoning with symptoms in people of confusion, vomiting, drowsiness and even respiratory arrest an death. Hand sanitizer usage has also actually increased antimicrobial resistance increasing the change of contracting the disease. In June 2020 researchers reported over 9000 hand sanitizer exposure poisoning cases in children.

Some brands contain a toxic version of alcohol called methanol. Methanol, also called wood alcohol, can be toxic when absorbed through the skin or ingested, the FDA warns. Symptoms include headache, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, loss of coordination, and a decreased level of consciousness and even death. The methanol has a direct toxic effect on the optic nerve, and ingestion can lead to blindness.

Another ingredient in many hand sanitizers is Triclosan, also found in soap. This ingredient is an endocrine disruptor and interferes with the thyroid hormone. Overuse of this ingredient leads to antibiotic resistance increasing susceptibility to infections. Recently Triclosan has been banned from most hand sanitizers, but not all and since EPA-approved products do not need to have their ingredients listed on product labels you may not know what toxin lies in hiding.

Handling pets after using hand sanitizers exposes them through their skin, and especially in cats where they will groom themselves to get rid of the substance. The FDA has stated there is no evidence that antibacterial products are more effective than regular soap and water. You could also substitute for therapeutic-grade essential oils but note that some essential oils are high in salicylates or phenol and these can be toxic to cats.

To protect your pets, when you get home, please keep your mask away from your pets until you wash it.  If you’ve been in an area of high potential exposure, change you clothes before letting your furry family member sit on your lap. Wash both your hands and your pets feet (if they have been in an area of exposure) with plain soap and water, reduce dust in your house (wet mop), and avoid toxic purchases (read labels). Our pets, especially cats, are susceptible to the virus especially because they groom themselves and can ingest the virus. If someone in your household is quarantined, make sure they stay away from the pets as well. Cats can shed the virus in their feces for a short time after infections so clean the litter box often and wear a mask while doing this. Double bag the soiled  litter, especially if it creates dust. Like people, pets need to keep their immune system on high alert so you may want to fortify with supplements.

If a family member has Covid, watch if your cat coughs or sneezes a lot and has trouble breathing. Then isolate them for 14 days and call the vet right away. They recover well with a little help from the vet. According to the CDC , there is no evidence that animals play a significant role in spreading SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to people. Based on the limited information available to date, the risk of animals spreading COVID-19 to people is considered to be low.

Sugar and the Brain

Excerpted from Natural Brain Health by Michael Edson, MS, L.Ac.

With consumption of soft drinks and candy, Americans consume an enormous amount of sugar, the equivalent of more than seven tablespoons daily. This amount of sugar is about 355 calories. We are in the midst of a crisis of obesity in the U.S. and the consumption of sweet foods is part of the problem.

The brain uses more energy than any other organ in the human body and glucose is its source of fuel.  In the adult brain, neurons have the highest energy demand,[i] requiring continuous delivery of glucose from blood. The main process by which this is accomplished is called glycolysis. Glucose provides precursors for neurotransmitter synthesis and ATP to fuel their actions. Glucose is also required for the brain’s energy demands unrelated to signaling.[ii]

However, too much glucose is toxic to brain cells. This is a problem worsened by the fact that regular intake of sugar has drug-like effects in the reward center of the brain, creating a desire for more sugar. High blood glucose levels can negatively affect the brain in a number of ways:

  1. It reduces functional connectivity of the default mode network, that system of the brain which links the individual with the outside world.[iii] Such altered functionality is associated with cognitive impairments.
  2. It can cause the brain to atrophy or shrink[iv] as does deteriorating brain glucose metabolism[v]
  3. It can lead to cerebral small vessel disease which restricts blood flow in the brain which can result in cognitive difficulties and, if severe enough, can cause vascular dementia.[vi]

High Blood Sugar

The body needs insulin to carry glucose into the brain. Excess sugar (and refined carbohydrate intake) over time can result in insulin insensitivity (requiring the body to make more insulin) contributing the type-2 diabetes. The effects of glucose and other forms of sugar on the brain may be the most profound in diabetes.

Research strongly supports the fact that people without diabetes but with above normal blood sugar levels have an increased risk of developing dementia.[vii] There is a relationship between the breakdown of glycolysis and Alzheimer’s disease,[viii] the severity of which is linked to the severity of Alzheimer’s pathology. Lower rates of glycolysis and higher brain glucose levels correlate to more severe plaques and tangles in the brains of people with the disease. Enzymes, amino acids serine, glycine, and alanine are essential parts of glycolysis, and are lower in Alzheimer’s cases compared to normal brain tissue samples.[ix] In addition, lower enzyme activity is associated with more severe Alzheimer’s pathology in the brain and the development of symptoms.

Hypoglycemia is a common complication of diabetes caused by low glucose levels in the blood. This can lead to loss of energy for brain function and is linked to poor attention and cognitive function.

Inflammation

Sweeteners of all kinds contribute to inflammation. Sugar is one of the most acidic foods, and excess sugar in one’s diet is considered a leading contributor to disease, such as type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure (hypertension), cancer, and dementia.[x]

Why Reduce Sugar

There are many reasons to reduce sugar intake.

  • Metabolic stability. When you eat or drink something sweet, it gives a quick surge of energy. However, the consequence of glucose entering the bloodstream so quickly is that the body’s ability to maintain stability is compromised.
  • Stable blood sugar levels. With some attention to our diet, we can help balance blood sugar. This is especially true in type-2 diabetes (adult onset), which sometimes can be managed by diet alone. It is rarely true of type 1 diabetes (juvenile onset).
  • Stronger immune system. Individuals with higher sugar consumption had shorter telomeres in their white blood cells as compared to those with lower sugar consumption (telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces).[xi]

Reduced glycation. Glycation is the binding of sugar and protein molecules in one’s body, and is part of the natural aging process. When the sugar molecule binds inappropriately to a protein, it forms a new compound called “advanced glycation end-products (AGE’s).” AGE’s cause ongoing inflammation and react with body tissues to produce free radicals and reactive oxygen species that damage healthy cells if not neutralized.

Recommended

Limit your sweets and avoid sugary drinks and sodas. In general, an alkaline diet will be a low sugar diet and will be anti-inflammatory. Avoid high glycemic index foods. Stevia is a great alternative to sugar and has been shown to be very safe.[i] It is an herb that is not sugar (has zero calories) and works by stimulating the sugar receptors in the tongue. Stevia is two-hundred times sweeter than sugar taken in the same dosages, so a small amount (even 3-5 drops in plain yogurt for example) goes a long way. Too much stevia gives food a bitter taste.

Reduce AGE’s. In addition to the above, avoid grilled and charred foods, fried foods, and slow cook your food or lightly steam your vegetables. Avoid vegetable oils for cooking in high heat. Olive oil is fine in low heat, saturated fats such as butter and coconuts oil have high heat tolerance which means that these oils when used in cooking maintain stability whereas oils such as vegetable oils have poor heat tolerance and can be quickly turned into an unhealthy oil high in free radicals when used in cooking. Complex carbohydrates and high fiber foods reduce the production of AGE’s in the body. Foods that help clear one’s body of AGE’s include kale, collard greens, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, citrus fruits, peaches, most berries, tomatoes, carrots, as well as green tea, grapeseed extract, carnosine, and vitamin B6.

Avoid artificial sweeteners. Sugar and artificially sweetened beverage intake have been linked to cardiometabolic risk factors, which increase the risk of cerebrovascular disease and dementia. Artificially-sweetened soft drinks are associated with an increased risk of ischemic stroke, all-cause dementia, and AD dementia.[ii] [iii] Some of the adverse effects on the central nervous system caused by the intake of aspartame are headaches, mood changes, insomnia and seizures.[iv] Other effects include confusion, personality disorders, dizziness and visual difficulty.[v] In mice studies, chronic aspartame consumption resulted in a longer time for the mice to locate the reward within the T-maze, which showed impaired long-term memory retention.[vi] [vii] [viii]

Ironically, although people consume artificial sweeteners in an attempt to reduce caloric intake and control or lose weight, studies actually show that consumption results in increased weight and has been attributed to obesity.[ix] [x] One reason may be that consumption of foods and fluids containing high-potency sweeteners interfered with the ability to detect sweet taste, thereby affecting energy regulation (and possibly increasing the desire for more sweets, or stimulating the desire for sugar).[xi]

Homeopathy and the virus

Homeopathy has been successful in treating other epidemics. In 1931 cholera struck Europe where conventional treatment showed a 40-80% mortality rate while homeopathic treatments only saw 9%. For example, in Vienna 1350 of 4500 patients died while being treated allopathically with only 18 deaths from 309 patients who were treated homeopathically. [1]

From 1862-1864 cases of diphtheria in Broome County New York showed 84 deaths per 100 cases (84%) treated allopathically and only 20 deaths per 125 cases (16.4%) treated homeopathically.[2] The influenza epidemic in 1918 saw 20 percent of the people worldwide affected with 50 million deaths. The average mortality under standard treatment ranged from 2.5% – 10% while only 1% died under homeopathic care. Dr.Herbert A. Roberts from Connecticut reported that data from 30 homeopathic physicians on 6602 cases only showed a death rate of 1%.[3]

With the success revealed in these statistics we can only wonder why mainstream medicine is reluctant to give any credence to this healing modality. Epidemics will continue to surface as they have throughout recorded history. It is worth a look at the efficacy, low cost and safety that homeopaths can offer in this current time of pandemic.

Kill virus’ in your home for protection

We just got an email about this cool light bulb that kills viruses and thought we’d pass it along in case you want to check it out. We’ve used it for two years to contain our kitty litter box smell and give our plants full spectrum light and it works well so we are getting a few more to protect against the nasty virus that is around.

The Pure-Light Super-Oxygen light bulbs, and surface coating technology… have shown the ability to kill ALL harmful viruses and bacteria that it has been tested against within hours on surfaces and in the air within 10 ft of the bulb and a coated surface when exposed to a light source, with the PLT bulbs actually being the light source. Hundreds of studies on the technology behind the Pure-Light bulbs demonstrate this over and over again. 

Check it out CLICK HERE or keep reading below

The reason for PLT technology being so effective against all harmful viruses and bacteria is because of the Super-Oxygen oxidation and cell lysing effect on viruses and bacteria of the lower order. In other words, the Super-Oxygen molecules are attracted to specifically lower class viruses and bacteria and destroys their cellular walls.

While Pure-Light technology has not been tested against the actually Coronavirus, it being a relatively new virus, The Coronavirus is a type of SARS virus and specifically, the technology behind Pure-Light was successfully tested against the SARS virus. To quote the reference:
Photocatalytic oxidation can also inactivate infectious microorganisms which can be airborne bioterrorism weapons, such as Bacillus anthracis (Anthrax) [46–48]. A photocatalytic system was investigated by Knight in 2003 to reduce the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) on flights [49], following the outbreak of the disease. Similarly, in 2007 the avian influenza virus A/H5N2 was shown to be inactivated from the gaseous phase using a photocatalytic prototype system

Block the CoronaVirus with dirt?

The untold anti-viral that can be used against the Coronavirus

Excerpted from the book Viral Immunity, Dr. Howard Peiper author                      Click Here for the ebook

Sealed away from wind and rain for millions of years are great deposits of animal and plant materials that have decomposed and then been compressed together by the millions of tons of earth over them. This process locks in their nutrients providing seventy-two natural ingredients. Humate is a safe material existing in all soils (dirt)!

What exactly is this miraculous substance? Humic acid. Scientists have most appropriately referred to it as the antiviral answer. One of the many reasons for excitement involves the effects humic acid exhibits when dissolved in water (or combined with body fluids). Humic acid is the smallest, most complex, most highly refined naturally occurring water-soluble substance on Earth. Tiny amounts remarkably transform the molecular structure of water, making it intensely more active and penetrable. Humic acid then assists water in its job of dissolving and transporting. It helps carry nutrients into the cell and waste products away from the cell, while also assisting in neutralizing toxins and invaders.

Humic acid has the dramatic ability to penetrate even deadly ultramicroscopic viruses. As we have previously discussed, viruses are super small and live only deep inside the cells of plants, animals and humans. Viruses even live inside other microscopic disease-causing organisms, where they “hitch a ride.” Viruses encapsulate themselves in an impenetrable protein barrier where defense mechanisms cannot reach them. Humic acid puts a coating around the viruses and preventing the virus from adhering to a healthy cell. The viruses then become vulnerable to attack by the immune system. Yet this is only the beginning. Humic acid also has the amazing ability to alert the immune system to the virus or disease invader and to regulate and strengthen the immune system!

Scientists have determined that to successfully treat many serious diseases, including those caused by viruses, the immune system needs to be controlled selectively. Humic acid is able to do this naturally by suppressing certain immune responses while increasing others.\\ Humic acid’s ability to selectively inhibit/complement the body’s immune response is one of the reasons it has been successful in treating and even curing diseases traditionally thought to be incurable. Historically, as documented in the Chinese Materia Medica pharmacological compendium dating back to the 15th century, a then famous medical doctor, Li Shi Zhen, used humic acid as the active ingredient in the treatment of infectious ulcerous growth and female hemorrhage disease. These treatises showed humic acid to be an efficient anti-inflammatory and blood-coagulating agent.

More recently, many reports on the beneficial use of humic acid for human health and medicine have been published. Many medical schools and hospitals in China have engaged in extensive studies on the toxicology and pathological aspects of humic acid and their clinical applications. Hundreds of research papers have now been published nationally in China, while many have appeared in international journals and have been presented at conferences outside of China. Chinese doctors now use humic related medicines to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, control bleeding, to regulate the immune and hormone systems, to heal digestive tract disorders, and as an anticancer and antitumor therapy. Research shows that humic acid naturally acts as a massive broad-spectrum antibiotic and antiviral medication equal to or even superior to those known and produced by the pharmaceutical industry today. Clinical studies show that negative side effects are non-existent when using humic acid at the recommended dosage. No problems or negative side effects have ever been reported by any in the scientific literature. Extensive laboratory and clinical testing has proven absolute safety for human internal and external use.

What enhances humic acid’s effectiveness? Humates contain both humic and fulvic acids. Fulvic acid is a chelator and “carries” the minerals. Humic acid is the dilator, increasing the cell wall permeability. The increased permeability facilitated by the humic acid allows easier transfer of the minerals from the blood to the bones and cells. Humic acid also encapsulates the viruses in our body, thus making the viruses vulnerable to attack by the immune system. It further prevents the viruses from reproducing. The agents for this are called viral fusion inhibitors (through a special proprietary process, the humic acid is specially treated and sterilized). This process makes this particular humic acid the most effective antiviral product on the market.

We recommend the supplement Daily Metrix which contains the humic/fulvic combination in addition to immune supporting complement of nutrients. www.LongLifeNews.com                                info: 413-229-9042

Coronary problems, eye disease and homocysteine levels.

Homocysteine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is a breakdown product of the essential amino acid methionine. If your levels are high you may be at risk for coronary problems, cancer, deep vein thrombosis, stroke, kidney disease, hypothyroidism and reduced physical performance in older women. High levels also have been linked to aging eye disease such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy.

Normally homocysteine is converted into a harmless amino, cysteine or back into methionine but gluten sensitivity may increase the buildup and thwart its normal conversion. The usual problem is low B vitamins and low folate (B9)* which helps homocysteine normalize as well low levels of B6 and B12. Since stomach acid is required to produce B12 and adequate folic acid absorption, the aging body may suffer because they have reduced stomach acid. Also if you use acid-blocking heartburn drugs to reduce stomach acid that will affect your ability to process the B vitamins.

Routine blood tests can confirm B vitamin deficiencies but you should also ask to have your homocysteine levels checked. If low and if you have stomach acid problems you may want to supplement.

*folic acid is the synthetic version of  folate… not as good.

Love bees and trees – fight 5G

Normally we  don’t write posts about things we are advocating for or against, but this is important for you to be aware of. Utilities are putting up 5G radiofrequency units on poles throughout the world and even President Trump wants to see it rolled out all over the USA. While you may think this will help your connectivity, it has been shown not to be that beneficial over 4G and there are numerous safer alternatives to supply service in remote areas. We don’t need an ugly group of hundred-pound units on the top of every so many poles on our street. Plus the radio-frequencies have proven to have a negative effect on not only our health but the health of nearby trees, birds and bees.

Currently, 5G technology is effective only over short distances and doesn’t penetrate through solids—requiring numerous antennae with unobstructed paths between transmitters and receivers. Wireless antennas emit microwaves – non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation – and essentially function as cell towers. Each installation can have over a thousand antennas that are transmitting simultaneously. They increase electromagnetic radiation near homes. Property values drop after a cell tower is built near homes and this ugly units will do nothing for curb appeal. Health effects to people and animals include:

  • Increased Wireless Exposure– Since this new standard will require extensive towers, Users will be subjected to more cell tower radiation as it will be nearly impossible to escape wireless radiation as more wireless-enabled devices will appear on the market.
  • Increased Number of Electromagnetic-Sensitivity (ES) Cases – ES is the condition in which people develop intolerances to radiation from wireless technology devices such as cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, smart meters and antennas. Symptoms range from tingling and headaches to sleep disturbances, nausea and memory problems. With the increased radiation associated with 5G, we can expect to see a drastic uptick in the number ES cases. For more information on EHS go to www.safehelpsyou.org
  • Negative Environmental Impacts– Wildlife is expected to be affected by the introduction of widespread 5G. It is theorized that the navigation of birds and insects (especially bees) will be disrupted and more research is required to explore the exact repercussions of Wi-Fi radiation on our environmental surrounding. According to a study by Wageningen University in the Netherlands, radio frequency signals could very well be responsible for the diseased trees, which exhibited bark tears, bleeding and leaves prematurely dying. Trees with closest proximity to Wi-Fi networks suffered from telltale indicators of radiation sickness, including a “lead-like shine” on their leaves, which is caused by the deterioration of outer-cell layers — leading to premature death of the foliage.
  • *bulleted text taken from the Canadian website http://c4st.org

We believe the responsible course of action is to defer 5G deployment until the full biological and environmental effects are understood. To protect our health, more research must be undertaken. Additionally, there should always be an option to opt-out from 5G technology from devices like appliances and cars—ensuring the safety of those with electromagnetic-sensitivities, the elderly and the young. – the AntiAgingLady

.During the recent years over 240 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns” , via EMF Scientists Appeal, regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices – already before the additional 5G roll-out. The over 240 scientists refer to the fact that ”numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.As of March 31 2019, 229 scientists and medical doctors have signed the appeal. The 5G Appeal is still open for endorsement for scientists (PhD, professor) or medical doctors (MD. Please contact professor em. Rainer Nyberg or ass. professor Lennart Hardell.  (Contact.)

Xylitol can harm dogs.

Since 2004, the ASPCAs Animal Poison Control Center has been warning that xylitol, a sweetener found in many sugar-free candies, gum and products including nut butters,  toothpaste and throat lozenges, can cause potentially life-threatening problems in our dogs. 

In most mammals, xylitol has no significant effect on insulin levels, but in dogs, xylitol stimulates a rapid, dose-dependent insulin release that can result in profound hypoglycemia. Symptoms could include a sudden drop in blood sugar resulting in depression, loss of coordination, seizures and live failure. These symptoms can occur quite rapidly often within 30 minutes and a quick trip to the vet would be advisable Activated charcoal does not appreciably bind xylitol and is not recommended. If hypoglycemia develops, it should be managed with dextrose IV boluses and/or constant-rate infusions.  In one study, 62.5% of dogs with signs of liver injury died or were euthanized despite aggressive veterinary intervention. So the moral of the story – keep xylitol products out of reach of your pooch!

We are electrical.

The human body is a highly sophisticated electrochemical machine. The nervous system is composed of nerve cells, or neurons which in the brain alone number 85-200 billion! A typical neuron consists of a cell body with a nucleus and two or more long fibers (dendrites that put out impulses toward the cell body and axons that return the signal). The neurons use chemical signals call neurotransmitters to transmit their signals. So what happens if this field is interrupted?

Many things can inhibit the chemicals needed to support these neurotransmitters including foreign electromagnetic signals not harmonious with the body and drugs such as antidepressants. Eating foods laced with pesticides and additives can create free-radicals in the body that not only compromise health but short-circuit our neurotransmitter production.

Foods that support neurotransmitter production are green leafy vegetables (especially spinach), brown rice,  sunflower seeds, sesame seeds are full of ingredients required for the production of serotonin, that gives us our positive mood. Walnuts, flaxseed, hemp and chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids that are excellent for raising serotonin levels and balancing neurotransmitters naturally.

Besides chemicals in our food that produce free-radicals, coffee, alcohol and sugary drinks have a negative impact on dopamine levels which is an important neurotransmitter for feelings of pleasure and happiness and essential in maintaining energy levels.  Ripe bananas and sesame seeds are excellent sources of dopamine. Wheat germ are rich in nutrients that raise acetylcholine levels in the brain, which is another important neurotransmitter that affects mood, memory, anxiety and more.

In regards to increasing and balancing neurotransmitters in the brain naturally, your dietary focus should be on consuming mostly alkaline foods. In this brief article we have touched on only a few of the neurotransmitters that control not only our mood but our bodily functions. There are numerous articles on restoring neurotransmitter efficiency online.
