Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease by Yolanda Hadid

YOLANDA HADID’s NEW BOOK

Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible
Disability of Lyme Disease

To ALL Our Fans at “One Cell One Light®” Radio Show:

I want to guide you to read the book by Ms. Yolanda Hadid, entitled Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease, which just hit the book shelves on September 12, 2017. (www.amazon.com & www.barnesandnoble.com)

The book brings out the various healthcare providers she saw throughout her journey to recovery in her battle against Lyme Disease. She even discusses on certain pages going to see her toxicologist, Dr. Hildegarde Staninger®, RIET-1, where she learned about essential oils, rose and orange water.

Over the years I have recommended to Lyme and other patients/clients the essential oil soft gels such as Slim & Sassy; Triease; Digest Zen and On Guard, manufactured by doTerra® (www.doterra.con/drhildy).  And  don’t  forget  my recipes for Orange and Rose water we use in our Dr. Hildy®’s Whole Body Detoxification and Environmental Health Educational Programs (.pdf).   They are quite refreshing.

Currently, I have reviewed the ingredients of a coffee that is designed to stimulate internal thermogenesis, which interact with your mitochondria and stimulates heat production, so it will allow the mitochondria to function properly as it burns fat (to reduce weight) and increase circulation. It is called Revital U Brew. It is known to reset your cells to remember who they were originally as created. This is so important to so many environmental stress factor exposures that may lead to increasing the potential risk of initiating an illness or disease over time. www.revitalu.com/drhildy

Revital U Brew was introduced to my listeners on the One Cell One Light Radio Show during our Labor Day Weekend Show, September 4, 2017. “Flowers are for Beauty, Fruit and Nuts are for Health,”  (https://onecellonelightradio.wordpress.com/2017/09/04/dr-hildy-presents-flowers/ ) because a coffee bean is a hard nut to crack and that is why we grind it.

Coming soon, before the year 2017 is over, we will have a show about my new book Cricket the K-Town Kitty: A Tale of Who I Am . Our special guest on the show will  be the leading authoritarian on Ancient Cat Ancestry, as reported in the National Geographic magazine, Dr. Leslie Lyons, Professor, University of Missouri.

Purchase these new books so you will know the answers to the special prize questions, when you try to win a very SPECIAL Dr. HILDY PRIZE that includes the new Baci Mi®  Gel “Ciao Ciao Meow” in honor Cricket the K-Town Kitty.  (An announcement for ordering will be published here when the book is released – soon! –  by the publisher – Cricket the K-Town Kitty: A Tale of Who I Am )

NANO BUILDING BLOCKS:  Polymers, Wires and Composites 
“A Collection of Updates in the Big World of Nanotechnology”

In the BIG World of Nanotechnology many individual compounds are used that are known to be hazardous materials and/or toxic substances are now being applied to the innovative and creative architectural design of bio-scaffolding, nano coatings, thin films and 3-D Bio-Printing and regular 3-D printing processes to name a few aspects of their use.

In the May 2015 issue of the Smithsonian, the magazine clearly sates the “Future is Here” as it specifically addresses topics of communicating brain to brain; farm to table organic suburbs; made to order bones and organs and fighting famine and drought with satellites.   In each of these processes a form of a nano advanced materials is used as a composite composed of a base polymer (of a known plastic raw materials).  It may be used to make a human ear and/or develop a brain cloud network of MEMS or nano-siliconCMOS neural dust sensors, so you may transfer your thoughts to another cloud brained archived brain or into your own after selecting the memory or function you desire.

In any event the use of polymers, wires and their composite materials are the nano building blocks to make a nano tool, which becomes the micro device.   The single building blocks as a nanotechnology term or nano advanced material that is composed of toxic individual compounds that are even maded from polymeric plastics such as Styrofoam®, phthalates, vinyl chloride, butadiene rubber and many more that are known human carcinogens are now being used in the following aspects of beauty, cosmetics, medicine and pharmaceutical industries as nano delivery systems are illustrated in their particular use and/or smart function aspect.

A primary concern to human and wildlife is the use of these same materials for a SCADA system(s) as integrated through visWi-Fi, Satellite, Wi-Fi, Radio Frequency and many other forms of energy field transmissions, which have been designed for remote human monitoring, internal biological monitoring and environmental monitoring areas are  all real. Billions of dollars are spent each year in military and medical research to refined their capabilities in these areas as documented in the National Nanotechnology Initiative Supplement to the President’s 2015 Budget, National Science and Technology Council, Subcommittee on Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology, March 2014, Washington, DC.  This is only the beginning of waking up to the Big Nano World and how it will impact your life for either the good or the bad.  So Rip van Winkle it is time to wake up and smell the roses before a nanobot gets you with the venom of a polymer resin.

ACETAMINOPHEN & PARACETAMOL and THEIR REACTION TO GLUTATHIONE

Recently, I co-authored a paper that is being published by the National Registry of Environmental ProfessionalsTM, Glenview, IL for their Professional Journal.   The paper is entitled:  “Glutathione and Its Role in the Biotransformation of Toxicants.”  The paper is a must read paper for anyone who has been exposed to industrial solvents, venoms, hazardous materials, medications and other toxic chemical substances.    The paper did not address a primary study that was conducted by J.R. Mitchell (1973) which specifically addressed the protective role of glutathione upon induced hepatic necrosis from exposure to the compound acetaminophen (paracetamol, the international nonproprietary name) an active ingredient in the medication Tylenol®.1, 2, 3a,b

The paper discusses the role of Xenobiotics and their metabolites.   A xenobiotic is a chemical which is found in an organism but which is not normally produced or expected to be present in it. It can also cover substances which are present in much higher concentrations than are usual. Specifically, drugs such as antibiotics are xenobiotics in humans because the human body does not produce them itself, nor are they part of a normal diet.

Natural compounds can also become xenobiotics if they are taken up by another organism, such as the uptake of natural human hormones by fish found downstream of sewage treatment plant outfalls, or the chemical defenses produced by some organisms as protection against predators.

However, the term xenobiotics is very often used in the context of pollutants such as dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls and their effect on the biota, because xenobiotics are understood as substances foreign to an entire biological system, i.e. artificial substances, which did not exist in nature before their synthesis by humans. The term xenobiotic is derived from the Greek words ξένος (xenos) = foreigner, stranger and βίος (bios, vios) = life, plus the Greek suffix for adjectives -τικός, -ή, -ό (tic).4 a, b

Free reactive electrophilic intermediates of xenobiotics can produce damage to important cellular consitituents.  Reduced gluathione and the glutathione S-transferase protect cells from this damage by capturing reactive electrophiles before they react at nuceleophilic sites critical to cell viability.5

The metabolism of acetaminophen, an analgesic that at high doses can produced hepatic necrosis, serves as an example of this protective system.  A large body of work has shown that one of the principal ways in which acetaminophen produces its hepatotoxicity is via the reactive intermediate, N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone imines shown in Figure 1.  This intermediate is apparently a soft electrophile that reacts readily with the strong, soft nucleophile glutathione.  As long as the amount of glutathione present at the site of activation of acetaminophen is sufficient to bind the reactive intermediate, no toxicity ensues.  However, as was demonstrated in a classic study by Mitchell et al.6, when glutathone is depleted by pretreatment with diethylmaleate, the benzoquinone imine covalently binds to tissue proteins resulting in tissue necrosis.  Mitchell et. al.6 were among the first to propose that glutathione plays a fundamental role in protecting tissue against electrophilic attack by xenobiotics.7

Since these early studies demonstrating the protective role of glutathione, many compounds have been shown to form conjugates with glutathione.  The protective interaction of glutathione and its primary sulfur dependent enzyme, glutathione-S-transferase play a major role in hormonal regulation of substrate supply to the small intestine.  Insulin, glycogen, and catecholamines are the most important hormones that regulate the supply of glucose, fatty acids, and ketone bodies in most tissue.  Early studies by W.C. Hulsmann concluded that the direct effect of these hormones on small intestinal epithelium may be modest or negligible, while interaction of streptozotocin-diabetic rat, showed the vascularly profused small intestine diminished glucose utilization.  This, however, is probably due to the glucose sparing action of fatty acids and ketone bodies upon intestinal energy metabolism, because of the observation that in diabetes the rate of lactate formation is not decreased.8 a,b, 9

It is very important to note that glutathione plays a major role in detoxification, walling up the toxicants and adding a chain of beneficial mechanisms need to protect one from the chronic effects of hormones, such as thyroid hormones and glucocorticoids that are further stimulated or inhibited upon exposure to thiols/mercaptans.10

Did you know that the watermelon is really a berry?  And what a sweet and delicious fruit it is to all of us who have eaten it during these long hot “microwavable” summers that stretch around the world.  Whether it is a little sugar baby or just a long green one it is always refreshing on hot summer day.   The fruit, rind and even the seeds have been known for their therapeutic medicinal use in ancient times in Persia, Egypt, Spain, Rome and Greece.

Watermelon has been reported as a very helpful in correcting abnormal kidney conditions, such as polycystic kidney, exposure to mycotoxins (Balkan Disease) and aids in the reduction of adenovirus within the kidney tissue.  Apparently there is an ingredient in the seeds, Cucurbocitrin, which has the effect of dilating the capillaries, the tiny blood vessels of the body.  Consequently, the pressure upon the large blood vessels within the kidney are then reduced.

 

Watermelon wedges are popular as desserts and they are also used in fruit salads, smoothies, popsicles, or mixed in a salad with pieces of cantaloupes, pears, apples and other fruits and berries.  It is quite a treat on a very HOT day, especially when served Ice cold.

Series 4:  Botanicals of Antiquity        BAY LEAVES

© August 3, 2012

Bay leaves have been used in culinary dishes from all over the word to give the tasty dish a “little zing” since ancient times. The bay tree belongs to the family of Laurraceane of the genus Laurus nobilis.   It is thought to originate from Asia Minor, but spread all over the Mediterranean and Asia during earlier times. 

Bay Leaf Tree

The bay plant is a conical evergreen tree growing to 30 feet in height.  Yellow or greenish white, star shaped flowers appear during early spring, which subsequently produce dark green-purplish single seeded berry.  The leaves are eliptic and shiny dark green about 3 to 4 inches long, rather thick and leathery.  

The leaves give off a sweet aroma when broken and added to a dish or your flour container to keep it fresh.  When slightly wilted and dried, they are strongly aromatic.  The dried fruit is also used as a flavoring agent in cuisines.

If you want to use it as a lymphatic and central nervous system detoxifying water, cell

regenerator as it nurtures your body back to health I personally recommend the following Dr. Hildy™ recipe.   Add 8 bay leaves to 4 quarts of water (spaghetti pot size to hold the water).    Bring to a boil, and then set to a side, off the burner.  Let steep 15 minutes or longer.   Pour into a pitcher as it cools down and keep in the refrigerator.  Serve as a refreshing drink. After drinking two glasses (approximately 10- to 12 ounces each) you may experience its detoxifying effects as it cleans out the nervous system of the lymph glands and CNS.  You will feel it strip the toxic build up away.  In cases where an individual may have been exposed to aromatic solvents, organophosphates/carbamates and silanes/siloxanes the bay leaf water will clean out the spinal cord and 350 glands within the individuals head.  You may experience a sweating from the crown of your head to the tip of your spine.  Quite refreshing and invigorating as the more you clean this target organ system.

The health benefits of bay leaf are the following: 

  • ·        Bay leaf was highly praised by the Greeks and the Romans, who thought that the herb was symbolic of wisdom, peace and protection.
  • ·        The spice contains many notable plant derived compounds, minerals and vitamins that are essential for optimum health, detox and cellular regeneration.
  • ·        This spice has many volatile active components such as alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, myrcene, limonene, linalool, methyl chavicol, neral, alpha terpineol, Read the rest of this entry

This vitamin is essential for the blood-forming organs of the bone marrow if they are to function properly.  Also, the nervous system depends upon this vitamin for nutrition.  One of the ingredients of this vitamin is cobalt, and it appears from the study of scientific materials that Vitamin B12 is now being referred to as cobalamin, because of the importance of cobalt in the diet.  Likewise, zinc is associated with this vitamin, the studies indicating that the vitamin cannot be synthesized without the help of zinc.  Vitamin B12 is also needed to help form hemoglobin scale.  Thus this vitamin is important for the prevention of anemia.  It also combines with folic acid to help produce the vital red blood cells.  Actually, it has been stated that less than one millionth of a gram of cobalamin is needed daily to meet the human body requirements.

The lack of cobalamin may cause pernicious anemia, due to the inability of the bone marrow to form blood when this vitamin is absent.  A symptom of lack of cobalamin is a shuffling gait.  Another indication is a loss of sense of position of the feet.  In severe cases, where there has been a degeneration of the spinal cord, there may be nerve and brain damage and even complete paralysis.

Another result of this deficiency is general malnutrition, marked by an insufficient production of sex hormones with the resultant lack of development or shriveling of Read the rest of this entry

Vitamin B-1

Vitamin B1 is also known as thiamin or thiamine.  However there are several vitamins in the B complex, and they are all interdependent and should all be taken at the same time.  A failure to have all of the B complex vitamins may lower the body’s resistance to disease.  Thiamine is especially valuable as an aid in the metabolism of carbohydrates.  Unless carbohydrates can be converted into energy, the individual will lack energy, drive and sparkle.  This vitamin is considered essential for reproductive powers and for proper nerve function. 

Wheat Germ B-1

An insufficient supply of thiamine can result in a variety of symptoms related to the functioning of the nervous system, such as irritability, insomnia, loss of appetite and constipation.  At times the arms and legs may feel numb due to the unhealthy nerves.  The lack of sufficient thiamine may cause beri-beri, the disease marked by extreme weakness, loss of appetite and weight, digestive disturbances, painful neuritis, and even paralysis.  The heart action is likely to become abnormal and mental depression is a common symptom.  The individual becomes short of breath with by very little exertion.  An insufficient supply of this vitamin also prevents the formation of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, which is needed for digestion of food.  Thiamin is a part of the enzyme system that breaks down pyruvic and lactic acids, releasing energy.  Read the rest of this entry

discovered in 1932 and given its name and identity in 1937.  It’s chemical formula is C17H20N4O6.  It is also known as riboflavin.
It is an important factor in growth and development of the body and promotes a healthy condition of the skin.  It is especially valuable in combination with Vitamin A for prevention and correction of cataracts and for health of the skin, hair and eyes.  This vitamin is also important to the body in assimilating iron and proteins.  Being water-soluble, it is not easily stored in the body.  It is affected by light but not by air or heat. An important chemical function of this vitamin is to break down starches and sugars into

energy, a function similar to that of Vitamin B1.  This enables the body to better resist infectious disease and is necessary for good health and vitality.  An ample supply of this vitamin will help produce healthier offspring and delay the bodily changes that often accompany increasing years of life.  It is said that the Centenarians of Bulgaria have a diet rich in Vitamin B2.A lack of Vitamin B2 may cause inflammation of the membrane of the eye and eyelids (conjunctivitis), lips that become sore and red and later cracked and peeled, especially at the mouth corners.  Often, the first sign of deficiency is dimness of vision at a distance or in poor light.  The cornea (the white, glasslike area of the eyeball) may become bloodshot and inflamed if the deficiency is allowed to continue.  The theory is that this vitamin carries oxygen, and when no oxygen arrives the body forms new blood vessels to bring oxygen to the parts lacking it.  An absence of riboflavin produced cataracts in experimentations.
