Can Ioxan Prevent Alzheimer’s?

A new study1 was just released and is supporting the hypothesis that Alzheimer’s is not just a disease, it’s also an infection of the gums.2,3,4,5,6,7

Ioxan, Herbal Gum Massage - Possibly Help Prevent for alzheimer's?

This evidence is connecting the pathogen, P. gingivalis to Alzheimer’s.  This is the pathogen that causes gum disease or periodontitis.  An inflammation of the gums.  The researchers identified enzymes called “gingipains” secreted by this bacteria in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.  These enzymes are toxic to a protein needed for normal brain and neuronal function.  In addition to that, the study found that mice with this P. gingivalis infection resulted in a brain colonization and increased production of the component of amyloid plaques.

Ioxan Salt N' Soda, Herbal Gum Massage - Possibly Help Prevent for alzheimer's?

We don’t know if Ioxan™ can prevent Alzheimer’s. But, we believe if Ioxan is capable of helping so many people with their gum conditions there is a good chance they may also be getting the benefit of a healthier mind and a longer, more joyous life.   I will continue to use Ioxan and our Ioxan Salt and Soda.

Testimonials on Ioxan:

“Since using the Ioxan, Herbal Gum Massage and Mouthrinse, my gums no longer bleed. Thank you so much!” – M.H., Covina, CA

“…The Ioxan is nothing short of miraculous.” – K.C., Sequim, WA

“Ioxan is the most effective gum therapy I have found.” – A.B., MD., Wheeling, WV

“I had not gone to the dentist for nearly four years and when I finally went I was told, after the cleaning, to come back in three months because my gums didn’t look healthy and that I may need a deep cleaning. For two months prior to my return I used IOXAN and was glad when told that my gums now look healthy.” – W.B. Sarasota, FL

“IOXAN … worked! I used the stuff twice a day, working it into the gum with an electric rotary toothbrush… Last week, I went for another checkup without telling the hygienist what I had done, but merely asked what the “pockets” looked like. ‘What pockets? There are none!’ No more talk of surgery and my mouth feels just fine!” – F.Z., St. Augustine, FL

“Excellent products! My husband was told he needed gum surgery. I bought IOXAN. A few months later, the dentist was amazed and said he didn’t need surgery! I gave our dentist all the info about it for other patients. He was impressed! THANKS!” – J.C., Wichita Falls, TX

Hemp’s Health Benefits for Your Mind and Body!

Hemp has been grown and used for thousands of years as a food, medicine, and fiber for textiles, paper and manufacturing. It is a nutritious plant rich in Omega fatty acids, healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and proteins. Research on it is currently ongoing for its potential anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain relieving properties.
 
While Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant species, Cannabis sativa, they are distinctly different plants. The most important difference to note is that marijuana contains tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”). THC is the compound responsible for the psychoactive properties of the plant. Hemp, on the other hand, is extremely low in THC. By legal definition, it cannot have more than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in it.

Hemp seed oil’s unique nutritional content offer numerous health benefits. Its Hemp Oil, Organic, 8 fl. oz.unique composition of Omega fatty acids moisturize and nourish skin, promote healthy looking hair, relieve dry, flaking scalp, support heart health, and provide excellent nutrition for the eyes and brain… and more.

Sulflax: A Remedy For Stimulating Eliminations

Sulflax, Healthy Elimination Powder FormulaThe formula name, Sulflax, was created by combining the name of one of its key ingredients and its function. It contains the prefix “sulf” (sulfur) and “lax” (laxative), its remedial purpose.

Enhancing better eliminations is a major component for achieving better health – part of Dr. Harold J. Reilly’s C.A.R.E. formula: Circulation, Assimilation, Relaxation, Elimination. While some laxatives are considered too harsh for some systems, he did offer other means of assisting and stimulating eliminations. This particular formula is one such remedy, and it is recommended to individuals from the ages of 21 months to 74 years.

Amount and Frequency

Taking Sulflax® can extend from once per day for 2 to 3 days, up to as long as 2 weeks; the suggested use is in the middle range of this spread–from 3 to 7 days. Some are advised to take Sulflax in a series, such as 3 to 5 days, rest 5 days, then repeat. With just a few exceptions, it is to be taken daily in the morning before breakfast; for some every other day is suitable, and for a few twice a day–morning and evening–is recommended. It can be taken either dry or mixed in a glass of water, while a few mention warm or hot water. Some customers state that they added it to syrup or honey.

The length of time recommended for taking Sulflax often depended upon one’s reaction to it, so that once eliminations have begun, it can be discontinued. Ten days and 2 weeks is the longest recommended time for taking Sulflax consistently. As mentioned earlier, it can be taken in a series, with rest periods in between repetitions.

Expected Effects from Using Sulflax

As to the purpose of the remedy, it is a purifier and cleanser for the body–for the circulatory and digestive systems as well as a stimulant for the elimination system. In its role as a mild laxative, it not only will increase the eliminations and set up the better assimilating forces for the body, but it will also cleanse and purify the alimentary canal (the passageway extending from the mouth to the anus through which food is processed and digested).

Additional Information

Poor eliminations may be the indirect or direct cause of various physical ailments for which Dr. Reilly’s patients asked for help. It is always advisable to seek advice from a health professional when beginning a new regimen of treatment.

It’s important to keep in mind that very rarely is only one item suggested for a particular health problem. Other remedies, such as osteopathic adjustments, the three-day apple diet, massages, steams, or colonics, are also recommended either during or after the taking of Sulflax. Each remedy has its own function to aid and assist the body in coming to a better balanced condition.

Introducing New Ragweed Capsules, the Food of the Gods?

I grew up dealing with allergies to ragweed and have studied the Ragweed plant for many years, including the optimum growing conditions and optimum area to grow a consistent crop.  I am fascinated by this lowly plant and the benefits we can obtain from its proper application.  In my research I have determined there are a few ways to acquire the benefits this plant’s constituents have to offer.  One is through a tincture.  Another is through a tea (a different milder species) and the other is via a capsule.  It is the Ragweed capsule that we are excited to introduce to you today.

Ragweed Capsules, 420 mgThere is no other product like this in the world.

There is no other product like this in the world.  We are able now to capsule fresh handpicked young Ragweed Ambrosia Leaves.  Each vegetable capsule contains 420 mg of these young fresh leaves from the Ragweed plant.  Locally grown and locally harvested.  The tender leaves of the Ragweed plant are handpicked and then they are carefully dried in our special facility.  Most importantly, we harvest our Ragweed at a particular time of the year to be sure the plant has not grown out of our quality specifications.  After we inspect the plants and judge their quality, we harvest and dry the tender leaves.  Because these procedures are meticulous, and because of the current size of our crop, we have a limited supply available.  Don’t miss out.

In Greek mythology ambrosia is considered the food of the Gods, and whether they are referring to Ragweed or not, we are discovering more benefits from this plant every year.  For example, Edgar Cayce (who often referred to ragweed as ambrosia) mentions using it for hay fever, reactions during allergy season, as a liver flush and much more.  He states it is excellent for the liver and good for everyone: “This is for anyone! This is the BEST of the vegetable compounds for activities of the liver.” He goes on to state that it “Maintains equilibrium in the pancreas, spleen, liver and hepatic circulation and digestive system as a whole.” He also calls it a non-habit forming mild laxative that will aid in both assimilations and eliminations.

We are proud to introduce to you this remarkable new product.

Liquid Herbal Extracts Benefits

Black Cohosh Liquid Herbal Extracts

Herbal extracts have been traditionally used to maintain, restore and improve health. But which is the best way to experience the medicinal benefits of an herb – capsules, teas or liquid extracts? Capsules may be convenient and teas may be easy to make but a liquid herbal extract offers benefits that these do not.

Tablets and capsules lose the potency of many of their active ingredients both in production and storage. Herbal tablets are prepared with fillers, binders and other materials necessary to compress the ground herbs into a tablet form. Herbal capsules tend to be better than tablets because they dissolve more easily in the stomach and do not contain the extra binding materials, however, if the body is not digesting and assimilating well, the potential therapeutic benefits of an herbal extract are diminished. Herbs in a capsule and tablet form also loose potency faster as they are exposed to oxygen.

Liquid Herbal Extracts tend to be more potent and offer a greater concentration of the plant’s medicinal properties. Their absorption occurs more quickly allowing the herbal properties to enter the bloodstream with minimal digestive effort.

Benefits of Taking a Liquid Herbal Extract:

  1. They are absorbed more easily.
  2. They are easy to take.
  3. They have a longer shelf-life.
  4. They offer a greater concentration of the plant constituents.
  5. They can be mixed in water, juice, or tea.
  6. They allow the aroma and taste of an herb to be experienced.
  7. May provide quicker benefits.

Alcohol Extraction:

Some herbs will not release their innate healing properties without a strong solvent such as Alcohol to extract its medicinal benefits. Alcohol has proven to work better than water for the extraction process of the plant’s active herbal constituents (parts of the plant that have an action on the body). It also protects the extract from bacterial growth, enhances the potency of the herb, preserves without refrigeration, extends shelf-life and brings out the aroma and flavor of the herbs.

Suggested Use:

Licorice Root Liquid Herbal ExtractsMost liquid herbal extracts can have a shelf life of up to 2 to 4 years. Store the liquid extract in a cool, dark place and shake well before each use. Always mix the dose in water, juice or tea to avoid irritating the mouth. Sip slowly and savor the flavor and aroma – an integral part of the plant’s therapeutic benefits. And don’t forget to check with your doctor – some herbs are contra-indicated when taking prescription drugs.
