Frequently Asked Question: Do I have gallbladder or gastric problems or both? How can I tell?

Fat intolerance or poor fat digestion (lipase deficiency) is the enzyme link to gallbladder problems. The worst fats that can trigger or exacerbate this are the omega-3 and -6 oils (PUFA for polyunsaturated fatty acids). Hypothyroid, estrogen dominant women have six times more gallbladder problems than men because estrogen triggers the release of PUFA from the cells, which can lead to gallbladder symptoms. Gallbladder symptoms may include: burping or nausea after meals, especially high fat or spicy; pain or discomfort under the right rib cage; a frequent sour taste in the mouth; sometimes regurgitation of food after meals, worse when laying down after eating; loss of appetite for meat and sometimes constipation with light colored stools. For this problem I recommend the HCL or the Bil digestive enzyme and usually the PAN digestive enzyme as well. Turmeric is also excellent for many problems including gallbladder, liver, colon, skin, vision, etc. The HCL or Bil multiple digestive enzymes cannot be tolerated by people if they have developed gastric problems.

In time, gallbladder problems can lead to stomach (gastric) problems. Symptoms may include nausea especially before eating and sometimes relieved by eating; heartburn or burning and pain in the stomach; esophageal acid reflux (GERD); ulcers and others. Gastric problems can also be caused or exacerbated by taking painkillers such as NSAIDs and other drugs and also by taking acidifying substances such as hydrochloric acid. People with gastric problems need the Stm digestive enzyme. Usage: 2 caps with each meal and 4 caps anytime needed to relieve gastric irritation.

If more help is needed to nourish the stomach, I recommend one or more of the following botanicals: Citricidal tabs or liquid, Colostrum powder or caps and Mastica Root. Aloe vera juice is also very soothing to the stomach. The worst carbs you can eat for gastric problems (and these are not healthy for anyone) are seeds, nuts, beans (except green beans), and grains (wheat, rye and barley especially). Safest grains are oats, corn and rice but not everyone can tolerate these. Heirloom grains (best sprouted and free of PUFA) can also be tolerated by some (spelt, quinoa, amaranth, kamut, etc.). The healthiest carbs are potatoes, carrots and fruits/fruit juices. Coconut oil is the easiest oil to digest and the healthiest of all oils. It helps to protect from PUFA, too.

Many people with gastric problems avoid gastric irritants so do not really know they have them. Then they start taking the HCL or the Bil digestive enzyme and this exacerbates the gastric problems due to the large amount of protease in these formulas. Some people have both gallbladder and gastric problems. It depends upon how long they have had lipase deficiencies and estrogen dominance.

The HPV Vaccination Hoax

In June 2006, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted to recommend the first vaccine developed to prevent cervical cancer and other diseases in females caused by certain types of genital human papillomavirus (HPV). The vaccine, Gardasil®, “supposedly” protects against four HPV types, which supposedly causes 70% of cervical cancers and 90% of genital warts. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently licensed this vaccine for use in girls/women, ages 9-26 years.

But is it safe? Does it work? Has it been adequately tested? Are there adverse side effects? The following articles and links may (or may not) surprise you, depending upon your knowledge about vaccines.

Go to http://www.naturalnews.com/Report_HPV_Vaccine_0.html to read “The Great HPV Vaccine Hoax Exposed” and to see the video on it. Here are some of the shocking facts revealed in this article:
  • Documents obtained from the FDA and other sources reveal that the FDA has been well aware for several years that Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has no direct link to cervical cancer.
  • HPV vaccines have been proven to be flatly worthless in clearing the HPV virus from women who have already been exposed to HPV (which includes most sexually active women), calling into question the scientific justification of mandatory "vaccinate everyone" policies.
  • There is evidence that the vaccine currently being administered for HPV -- Gardasil -- may increase the risk of precancerous cervical lesions by an alarming 44.6 percent in some women.
  • This vaccine may be far more dangerous to the health of women than doing nothing at all.

This report also reveals startling facts about the HPV vaccine that most people will find shocking:

  • How it may actually increase the risk of precancerous lesions by 44.6 percent.
  • The FDA has, for four years, known that HPV was not the cause of cervical cancer.
  • Why mandatory HPV vaccination policies may cause great harm to young girls.
  • Why HPV infections are self-limiting and pose no real danger in healthy women.
  • Little-known FDA documents that reveal astounding facts about Gardasil
On August 20, 2007 Judicial Watch filed a request for updated adverse event reports and received 1,824 on September 13 2007reports including 8 deaths and permanent disabilities. This brings the known total adverse effects to 3,461. Judicial Watch filed a complaint against the FDA on October 3, 2007 for failing to fully respond to the May 9, 2007 FOIA request. Judicial Watch has posted links to the adverse event reports below and continues to monitor VAERS reports submitted to the FDA in relation to Gardasil.

Alternative to the Gardasil vaccine: Stay healthy! Stay close to Mother Earth. Eat an organic whole foods prothyroid diet, optimize digestion with plant enzymes, and balance your hormones. This program has no adverse side effects!
