Alternative Health

Alternative Health.

You may hear the phrase Alternative Health and question just what does Alternative Health mean?  You may also discover after some research that it means different things to different people.  Alternative Health, simply defined, is an alternative or optional approach to becoming or remaining healthy.   It is an optional approach that veers away from the currently accepted practices of medicine and explores other options.  It generally means a choice of treatment other than a chemical choice.  Therefore, the general goal of alternative health is to use methods of reducing symptoms and restoring health with means that are not of a chemical origin.

You visit your doctor.  He is saddened to tell you that you are experiencing blood pressure that is higher than normal or safe.  This puts you at risk for a possible medical incident.   Therefore he makes the recommendation that you should go on a medication to help lower or regulate your blood pressure.  Obediently you go to the pharmacy and purchase the medication.  And if the pharmacist properly does their job they read the warning and side indications of the drug.   As he reads the list of possible side effects you make a mental note.  Because the side effects include the same events that you are hoping to avoid by taking it you become a bit confused.  Maybe you are even somewhat a little scared.  Is this medication really the answer?

What causes high blood pressure?  You do some research.  It is all quite vague.  You may find causes such as diet, hereditary, imbalances of hormones, or complications of other diseases.  But you really do not get a good feel for why you have it.  Therefore you also do not get a good idea of how to get rid of it.  You still wonder if the medication is the answer.

Inflammation causes high blood pressure and many other diseases that are associated with aging.  Therefore the real question is, what causes the inflammation?  In Alternative Medicine, we look at the cause or causes and work on fixing those.  After all, if we eliminate the cause will we not eliminate the problem?

Furthermore, almost every one of the diseases – we will call them aging diseases- have a root cause of dietary shortcomings.  Many diseases have the same root causes.  So if dietary shortcomings caused the problem, can dietary changes fix the problem?  There is good news!   Yes, they can!  We have seen dozens of patients change their diagnoses by changing their diet!  There are countless peer-review papers written on many of the efficacy of alternative solutions, as well.  Also, there are many doctors in the Functional Medicine arena that solely use food and diet to reverse many medical diagnoses.

I am not going into every disease here with every solution.  I will state however that if you have an illness, there are foods that we can use, a diet we can create, and a lifestyle we can coach you through that will change your diagnosis and set you on the path to good health.  The biggest mistake you will make is thinking, “not my diagnosis, not me.  My illness cannot be helped.  I need a chemical path to help me cope with my illness.”   Note I said “cope”.

Alternative medicine does not just “cope” with or mask your symptoms.  Alternative medicines help you eliminate your symptoms by eliminating the causes of your illness.

Therefore let us look at the example of high blood pressure as one disease that we can reverse or regulate by changing some lifestyle habits and diet.  One of the biggest and most effective changes you can make in relating blood pressure is by changing what you drink.  Eliminate every beverage except water.  Yes, that means no soft drinks, no power drinks, no tea – sweet, unsweet, or any other tea, all coffee-based beverages, wine, beer, and any other alcoholic drinks must be eliminated.  Once the blood pressure is regulated you may add back a cup of coffee, a glass of unsweet tea, or a glass of wine but never let them replace your water.

Because water is the only liquid that can cleanse the blood, by drinking enough good quality water- spring, purified, or filtered- you will cleanse the sludge out of your blood.  The sludge is the cause of inflammation.  Therefore it is the cause of high blood pressure.  How much water should you drink?  There is a whole article on this site on water consumption.  Here are the basics: 8 to 12 ounces on rising each day.  Throughout the day 3 to 4 ounces every 20 to 30 minutes.  If you do an activity that causes perspiration of course you need to add more.

However, if you find the water is not working, it may be because you are not getting the proper salt or type of salt.  Be certain you are not using sodium-filled foods.  What are sodium-filled foods?  Highly processed, particularly canned foods.  Use fresh or frozen foods, limit salty snacks, and chips and use a brand of salt called Real Salt, or some other salt with high mineral content.  PLEASE, stay away from salts from China.  The Real Salt company mines here in the US from an old sea bed.  Also, there are some good salts derived from the Andes.

By adding exercise to your daily regimen you can further help regulate your blood pressure.  Walking, yoga, stretching exercises, biking, swimming, water games, and rowing are all good choices.  The more outdoor,  in the sun activities the better as the natural vitamin D is very helpful.  Furthermore, physical activity reduces stress.  Stress causes high blood pressure.   Therefore, stress relief helps lower your numbers, too.  The benefits of exercise are twofold.

A great side effect of drinking water and exercise is often weight loss.  Most of us find that losing a few pounds benefits us in multiple ways.  You can further help reduce your blood pressure by increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables.  Eat a rainbow of colors in foods each day.  Be certain you are getting lots of greens, yellow, orange, red, purple, and blue foods.  A serving measures 1/2 cups.  It is best if you get 12 to 15 servings each day.  Furthermore, many of these colorful foods can be eaten in even larger quantities if you are hungry or need to graze occasionally.

A second disease we will look at is diabetes.  Often these two diseases go hand in hand.  They have similar causes.  Our Standard American Diet (SAD) focuses too much on grains and high carbohydrate content foods that turn into sugar and fat if we do not exercise enough to wear them off.    This diet results in too much weight, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and other complications as we age.  Therefore, it is imperative that we reverse the direction our health is going once we hear the diagnosis of diabetes or prediabetes.

So how do you turn that diagnosis around?  Much the same way as you turn high blood pressure around.  Building your meals around fresh vegetables, good quality protein, healthy oils, eliminating sugary foods will reverse the diagnosis of diabetes or prediabetes.  Exercise is as important as what you eat.  Get moving in some way and keep moving.

The third type of diagnoses we will cover are digestive related challenges.  This includes everything from IBS, to constipation, to Crohn’s disease, to Celiac, and any disease that has to do with the Gastro-Intestinal tract from the mouth to the anis.  They are all related!  Because we are given antibiotics for every sniffle, eat foods with too many preservatives, eat fried foods, pesticide-laden foods, and drink alcohol and other destructive beverages, our GI tract suffers.  Emotional stress adds to the destruction of our good gut flora as well.

How do we fix our guts?  Much the same way as we fix the other diseases.  Stay away from destructive food and drink.  that means eliminating fast fried foods, alcohol, anti-biotics, preserved foods, and soft drinks.  Eat foods that will replace your good gut flora and, since the leaky gut syndrome is probably present, work on totally repairing the gut.  Good probiotics, colostrum, some full-fat yogurts, fermented foods like sauerkraut kimchi, some unsweetened fermented teas, and healthy fats will all help rebuild your gut flora.  Will it happen overnight?  No.  But you did not get into the mess you may be in overnight either.  Our bodies are so good at self-repair and fighting off the bad that it takes years to get into a bad situation.  It takes time to reverse that situation.

In Alternative Health, we address all dimensions.  A good mental attitude, being spiritually grounded, and having a belief that you are in control of your health are all just as important as what you put into your mouth!  If you do not believe you are in control you will not be.  We are multi-dimensional beings and we must address all dimensions.  No matter what your diagnosis doing things that make you happy, help you feel relaxed, and brightens your spirit will help improve your health.

Is Colostrum Therapy Right for You?

Is Colostrum Therapy right for you? 

You are the only one that can answer that question.  However, almost everyone I have ever treated in my 35 plus years of practice has seen benefits from the use of some form of colostrum.  The benefits they have experienced vary.   But they have benefited in some way.

Consider these benefits of the Colostrum products we promote from Prosolve Labs.   Clinical research backs every one of these benefits stated.

PRO Colostrum – LD Powder and Capsules help to:

  • Boost, balance, and maintain optimal immune function.
  • Eliminate harmful pathogens and fight infections
  • Protect and heal the GI and stomach lining
  • Promote increased nutrient absorption in the gut
  • Increase muscle strength and stamina; speed recovery after exercise or injury; burn fat, and help maintain normal blood glucose levels.
  • Stimulate wound healing
  • Provide anti-aging benefits.
  • Maintain a normal inflammatory response.
  • Promote T-cell growth

Ask yourself this question:  Is my immune system as strong and healthy as it could be?  Maybe you are not certain.  For 98% of the population, the answer is “no” it is not.  However, sadly they/you may not know it is not healthy.  Our immune system’s integrity is being challenged each day in many ways.  Did you get enough restful sleep?  Were you under any type of physical, emotional, or spiritual stress in the last twenty-four hours?  Did you possibly inhale any toxins?  Were you exposed to anything harmful in any way that might challenge your body’s balance?

Three Black-and-white Cows

All of us go through several stressors every day of our lives.  Therefore our immune systems are constantly being weakened.  Because of these immune systems weakening events we need to provide some means to fortify ourselves.  We need to keep our immune systems as healthy as possible.  Some form of Colostrum Therapy is your best defense.

Some of the stressors we may be exposed to are pathogens and/or infectious environments.  Again, Colostrum Therapy is the answer to fortifying yourself to be able to overcome the infections.  It will help eliminate or disarm the pathogens, rendering them harmless to you.

Our biggest defense against viruses, influenza, and even cancer is a healthy supply of T-cells.  Colostrum Therapy helps grow strong T-cells.  It ensures there are T-cells present when we need them.  Not all of us produce T-cells on a regular basis.  This is particularly true in men.  Therefore we highly recommend all men use some form of Colostrum Therapy.  As of the research out there today, T cells are the best defense against any type of Sars Virus, including the current COVID-19.  A vaccination only protects you for a brief period of time.  That means even when one does become available its protection life will be short-lived.

Furthermore, it most like will protect you from this strain of virus only.  The T cells produced when you use Colostrum Therapy are always present and always protecting you.  If, or more likely when, a new virus appears you will be protected.  You will not have to wait for a vaccine!

Meanwhile, the T Cells are also protecting you from cancer.  They help prevent cancerous cellular growth.   They will also be protecting you from seasonal influenza outbreaks.   These factors alone make Colostrum Therapy well worthwhile.

One of the biggest areas of concern in our bodies is our gut.  Our guts must be healthy.  Why?  Because most of our immune system lies within our gut.  Our gut is responsible for transforming nutrients into usable body building material.  Therefore, without a healthy gut, we do not get the full benefit of the foods we eat.   Furthermore, without a healthy gut, we experience ailments ranging from IBS, arthritis, Lupus, and other autoimmune diseases to constipation and Crohn’s disease.  Also, we are more prone to getting every flu bug and cold that passes by.

Vegetable Lot

Colostrum Therapy protects our stomach lining and gut from the many enemies it comes in contact with daily.  Colostrum helps the gut to heal.  Often we suffer from a syndrome called “leaky gut”.  What is “leaky gut” and what effect does it have on our overall health if we suffer from it?

The walls of our intestinal tract are supposed to be fairly impermeable.   However, for most of us, this is not true.  Because we drink things like soda, coffee, tea, and take medications that injure our gut lining it develops leaks.  Also, daily stress, anxiety, and pollution challenge our gut integrity.  These leaks allow pathogens and foreign subjects to enter our bloodstreams.  They are responsible for the maladies I listed above and many others.  Furthermore, they cause aging and slow recovery from any illness we do experience.

However, with Colostrum Therapy the integrity of the stomach lining and the gut lining can be restored.  By restoring health to these two areas you can also experience the lessening of inflammatory responses.  Also, you can begin to experience fewer bouts of illness.  Furthermore, if you have an autoimmune disease or other disease linked to a leaky gut,  you will begin to experience less severe symptoms.  Let us look at each of these advantages of using Colostrum Therapy.

The results you experience from Colostrum Therapy vary depending on several variables.  The biggest variable is how long you have suffered symptoms if your goal is symptom reduction.  If you are building immunity, you begin to get results after 30 days.  Let us look at symptom reducing expectations.

Even though it takes time, you can reverse autoimmune disease symptoms.  The longer you have been ill the longer your recovery.  However, your willingness to stick to the protocol we establish for you can also speed up your results.  We approach your recovery from the physical, emotional, and spiritual angels.  Because we have learned that all three areas of our life affect every aspect of our wellness, we must address all areas.  Therefore, we must heal you totally for the best results. Colostrum Therapy leads you to recovery in several ways.

Because Colostrum is a balancer, your body will begin to realign itself.  Secondly, as the realignment occurs your hormones will begin to level out as your immune system strengthen.  Inflammation will reduce.  Much of our inflammation is hidden internally.  But as it reduces your overall feeling of well being will improve.  As all of this is happening your intestinal tract is healing.  The breaks and fissures in your gut wall are closing up.  This means that fewer and fewer impurities are entering your bloodstream.  Furthermore, as your bloodstream becomes purer or cleaner, it is able to carry more oxygen throughout the body.  Every organ and system of your body needs oxygen for upkeep and repair.  Increased oxygen supply means healthier organs.  And you may also experience sharper thinking and increased vitality.

Also, you might note that we state nutrient absorption as one of Colostrum Therapy’s benefits.  What does better nutrient absorption mean to your health?  It means reduced aging,  stronger bones and joints, a sharper brain, and better stamina.  If you work out you will experience faster recovery rates and better overall performance.

As you can see the benefits of Colostrum Therapy are endless.  Let us share a few changes our clients have experienced:

  • Loss of belly fat resulting in a flattened tummy.
  • More endurance and stamina on the job equaling better job performance.
  • Faster recovery after a workout with added stamina during a workout.
  • Better competitive sports performance.
  • Reduced stiffness in joints.
  • Fewer bouts of illness.
  • Better blood sugar and blood pressure control.
  • More consistent bowel movements.
  • Reduced allergy symptoms.
  • Reduced IBS symptoms.
  • Better sleep patterns.
  • Faster healing and recovery after surgery or injury.
  • Faster recovery after childbirth with enhanced milk production.
  • Reduced instances of colds, ear infections, and other childhood illnesses.

Because we often track our patience results by observation by using the BioPulsar and aura Technology we also see changes indicating an improvement in overall wellness.  Our objective is to see a well-balanced aura with all areas performing equally as well.  Furthermore, often we see this balancing occurring after just one week of treatment.

Seeing your improvement on the Aura scan is exciting.  Because you can see more vitality expressed with your organs resonating healthier colors, you know you are improving.  They affirm that you are on the right track.  And you know you are doing the right things to lead to the results you hope to achieve.     You may be on a long journey if you have been unhealthy for a longer period of time.  But seeing improvements encourages you to keep on your protocol.

What do we recommend?  A great way to start is with the PRO Cleanse and Detox Bundle. (Link to ProSovlabs below)  Because this one month bundle of products helps you Cleanse and Detox it will get you started on the right track.  Once you have cleansed and detoxed then you can determine what products you need on a monthly basis.

Once you have Cleansed and Detoxed then evaluate what your goals are.  If you are not certain what product is best for you set a phone appointment with Dr. Emmett or Nancy.  We will advise you on what is best for your current diagnosis.  Furthermore, we like to coach you to at least get you started so we know you are not just shooting in the dark, hoping to find the right remedy.   Also, we often find we need to suggest dietary modifications, minor lifestyle changes, and we generally have other helpful suggestions.   Other articles on this site may help you with your product choices.

Also, we do have protocols for children with allergies or who have challenged immune systems or other health concerns.

Colostrum as a Home Remedy

Colostrum as a Home Remedy

Dr. Emmett’s Corner on colostrum as a home remedy:

I use Colostrum as a home remedy for several varying ailments.  For years, it has been a staple in my medicine cabinet.  Colostrum as a home remedy is a great eyewash (in liquid form) if something gets in my eyes.  It is a great healer if I or one of my animals has a cut.  When I had a tooth extracted or root canal – I have had a few!  I would hold the colostrum in my mouth or pack it in the hole where the tooth had been removed.  It promotes fast healing.  Colostrum as a home remedy soothes a sore throat, heals mouth sores, and kills bacteria in the gums.  Because of its many nutrients, it moistens dry skin and restores youthful tones.

My wife, Nancy is a breast cancer survivor.  That means she has gone through several surgeries both to remove her breast and then for the rebuilding of the breast with her own tissue.  Her surgeons are all great.  Some of the best in the US.  But whenever there is a cut there is going to be a scar.  However, her scars are minimal and always she heals quickly.   We apply colostrum to the surgery areas.  Furthermore, by using colostrum orally we improve her stamina before and after the surgery.  The colostrum also provides healing building blocks for the body to form new tissue.

Colostrum and Your Immune System


Can Colostrum Improve Your Immune System?

What is colostrum?

Colostrum is vital in the early lives of all mammals.  It is particularly vital for their immune system.   What is colostrum?  It is the “first milk” that a mother mammal produces just prior and after the birth of her baby.  This protein-packed fluid contains immune-building antibodies and lymphocytes along with immunoglobulins.   The newborn uses these properties to form enough antibodies to protect itself from disease until its immune system is working.  At the same time, these antibodies are aiding in establishing the newborn’s immune system.

Heal Your Gut!

Some factors of Colostrum

Some of the factors of colostrum are:

  • Its proteins also include hormones, enzymes, complex sugars, and growth factors.  These growth factors speed up tissue healing.
  • The proline-rich polypeptides normalize or balance an overactive or under-active immune system.
  • Also, it contains a peroxidase enzyme, which destroys disease-carrying microbes.
  • Furthermore, the lactoferrin it contains is able to neutralize certain types of bacteria.

A Diet or A New Lifestyle?

Which is best for you?  A diet or a new lifestyle? There are several reasons for changing one’s “diet” or lifestyle.  Is there a difference between a diet or a new lifestyle?  What is best for you: a diet or a new lifestyle?  How do you determine which is best for you: a diet or a new lifestyle.  In most cases, a diet is not enough.  It is a temporary fix.  Kind of like putting a band-aid on a broken finger.  The band-aid might temporarily give some support to the finger but not enough support for the finger to be able to heal.  The diet might get a few of the results you are hoping for BUT rarely are the results lasting.  A new lifestyle, however, might be a whole different story.

So you may be asking what is the difference between a diet and a new lifestyle?  Why is a diet less effective than a new lifestyle?  Unless we change habits permanently our ultimate goal for going on a specific diet will never be achieved for an extended period of time.

We Can Learn From Studying Human Auras

What can we learn from studying human Auras?  Because our Aura shows us a picture of our multi-dimensional selves we can learn many things about our health today.  We can also predict what can happen with our health in both the near and distant future.  Your aura picture shows us where you are healthy today.  We can also learn by studying human auras where we are struggling.  Our struggles can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.  They are all indicated by the colors of our aura.  By studying human auras over time we can see patterns develop that indicate health trends.  Let me give you an example of what we learn from studying Human Auras and what we do with the information we learn.

Let us say we have taken a picture of your aura.  We see many beautiful bright colors BUT we also see some grey and some murky reds.  Above the head, we see yellow which tells me that you are an analytical person.  You may enjoy learning and studying.  The grey, however, is in your head area or the area of what we call the Brow Chakra area.  This may indicate a lack of energy. Depending on exactly where in the brain the grey is emanating from you may experience poor memory recall or that it is difficult to concentrate.

More On Essential Oils


Here are some updates on some successes we have had using Essential Oils.  They are great everyday use for family health and as well as other alternative health solutions:

Essential Oils for Weight Loss

A couple of great successes with weight loss:  One success includes using grapefruit essential oils as an appetizer suppressant.  Also,  we have noted that it is a great blood sugar regulator.  Here is one recipe:  add 20-25 drops of grapefruit oil to a 16 oz bottle of sparkling water.  The grapefruit oil helps curb cravings as well.    You can also use spring water if you prefer.  Also, you can apply the grapefruit oil mixed with a carrier to the abdomen.  (Use Jojoba as a carrier)

Also, the thyroid is a center for weight loss.  Therefore, the second recipe is for a thyroid regulating ointment.    Use 3 tablespoons of coconut or jojoba oil, 15 drops of peppermint, and 30 of frankincense.  Mix well and place in the refrigerator until it becomes firm.  Apply over the throat area and/or tummy before bed.

Essential Oils

A couple of years ago one of our young grandsons was being challenged with migraine headaches.  They were severe to the extent that he was missing a lot of school.  He was at risk of being held back in his grade because of inadequate attendance. My daughter researched every possible option of relieving the headaches that appear with an unknown cause. If he took some an over the counter headache remedy at the onset he could generally overcome a headache. However, if the onset occurred while he was at school that was impossible.

By the next school year, she had come up with a couple of solutions. Fluorescent lighting is one of the triggers, so he requests to sit near a window with natural light.  This reduces the effects of fluorescent lighting. She found a possible second solution she hoped would work. She combined some essential oils in a roller bottle for easy application. He can take his roll-on to school and does not need a nurse’s permission to use it. At a headache onset, he rolls the oils over his temples, across his forehead and the back of his neck. It has been a success! Continue reading Essential Oils
