Spring! Are We There Yet??
The Puerto Vallarta conference was a beautiful, enlightening experience. I met 50 doctors and attended some great lectures. Paradise Village (aptly named) is an enchanting resort right on the beach. After basking in the sun and eating outdoors in summer clothes, returning to cold, wet, dark Oregon was a letdown! But Spring is just around the corner and I am impatiently awaiting the warm summer days.
In this issue we present a detective story. How does Lita determine what enzymes you need? Read on to find out!
To Your Health!
What A Difference A Day Makes...
How Lita uses the Loomis 24-hour urine
test to determine enzyme and nutritional deficiencies.
This handy dandy test is not a diagnostic test, but rather a prognostic one - it predicts the disease you will get if you don't clean up your diet and nutrition act. This urine test shows enzyme and nutrient deficiencies long before they show up in the blood. Why? The blood will keep what it needs and dump what it doesn't. By examining the urine we can see what the blood is doing. For example, if the urine shows low calcium this means the blood cannot spare the threshold (normal) amount of calcium. The same is true for all nutrients found in the urine. Cells will sacrifice themselves to the blood so it can maintain its homeostasis - a very narrow range of values.
- First, the Loomis urinalysis tells what you cannot digest, absorb or assimilate. If it's protein, you are protease deficient. If it's fat, you are lipase deficient. If it's carbohydrates, you are amylase deficient. If it's sugar (cane, milk or grain sugar), you are (respectively) sucrase, lactase or maltase deficient.
- Second, this test reveals nutrient deficiencies, such as chlorides, calcium, vitamin C and salt. Yes folks, many of you are salt deficient because you have been told not to eat salt. Read about how important salt is in the section on high blood pressure.
- Third, this test determines acid - alkaline (pH) balance. This is very important for mineral absorption. For example, overly alkaline people can't absorb calcium, develop calcium-deficiency problems (e.g. arthritis, osteoporosis) and may be very anxious.
- Fourth, this test shows if you have an allergy pattern. Most people have this pattern even if they are unaware of the cause.
- Fifth, this test reveals how toxic your colon is. Did you know there is a poison that comes from undigested food that is excreted in the urine? It's called indican and there are over 100 conditions that are associated with high urinary indican levels.
How can the urine test predict disease? Each enzyme deficiency can lead to several health conditions. Let me briefly illustrate (this is only a partial list):
Protease deficiency: anxiety, immune system problems, frequent infections and edema (anywhere);
Lipase deficiency: gallbladder problems, cardiovascular problems,hypertension,obesity,diabetes, stomach problems;
Amylase deficiency: skin problems such as hives, rashes, herpes, allergies to bee stings/bug bites/poison oak/ivy;
Sucrase/lactase/maltase deficiency: physical:asthma, environmental illness,seizures,diarrhea;emotional/mental: mood swings,angry/irritable behavior, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD), panic attacks,insomnia and depression.
Now you will understand why I wrote the following joke in 1987.
A very sick man came to visit Dr. Loomis. He said "Dr. Loomis, I am told that you take rejects from all the other doctors, so here I am. I have been to all of them and I am still sick. Can you help me?"
Dr. Loomis said "I don't know but I will try." With that, Loomis handed the patient a large jug and said "Bring me a refrigerated 24-hour urine in this jug. I will analyze it and put you on an enzyme program."
The man was taken aback. He took the jug and muttered to himself all the way home! "This guy must be nuts to tell me what I need from my urine!"
That day, Joe Patient went home and collected urine from his wife, his daughter and his dog. The next day he presented his collection to Loomis, who, after analyzing it, came back to Joe and said:
"I have very bad news for you. Your dog is pregnant, your daughter is no longer a virgin and your wife is sleeping with the next door neighbor."
High Blood Pressure
What causes high blood pressure?
The most common nutritional cause of high blood pressure is hypothyroidism (low thyroid function), which produces excess adrenaline. Excess adrenaline is a leading cause of heart disease. Of course, thyroid glandular therapy is indicated.
Stress is also a cause, because severe stress also produces high adrenaline. There are many remedies for severe stress (e.g. CLM for nervousness, Adr for stress, depression, panic attacks and insomnia, TRMA for anxiety). The anti-aging steroid, pregnenolone, is also excellent for relieving depression, panic attacks and anxiety.
Inadequate intake of sea salt is another major cause of hypertension. Sea salt is a natural diuretic and, by raising blood sugar to normal, lowers adrenalin and thus prevents heart disease. Hypothyroid people are candidates for hypertension not only from excess adrenaline, but also because they cannot hold sodium (which is why they get edema). Don't confuse sea salt with table salt. Sea salt contains 48 minerals; table salt contains only sodium chloride. BIG difference!
There is a structural problem that causes hypertension - a vertebral subluxation within the first 3 upper cervical vertebrae (C1, C2 and C3). The enzyme formula for this problem is Sym. Sym can help relieve hypertension caused by this structural problem as well as help hold the chiropractic adjustment.
The enzyme connection to hypertension is lipase (fat intolerance). The enzyme formulation containing the most lipase is VSCLR. HCL contains the next highest amount, however, all of the multiple digestive enzymes contain lipase.
There are also herbs for high blood pressure. My favorite one is coleus forskohlii, which is indicated in cardiovascular and blood pressure problems.
So, support your thyroid, eat organic salt (to taste), manage your stress and take a multiple digestive enzyme. For a more detailed paper on hypertension, call the office.
Many of my patients have been told that thyroid glandulars are useless as they contain no free forms of the thyroid hormones. While this is true, it is only half the story. The glandular contains the protein precursors of the thyroid hormones (thyroglobulins) digestion of which releases the free units of the thyroid hormones (T4&T3).
Beware, however! Very few glandulars are authentic. The bogus ones are nothing but iodinated casein (milk protein) and some contain amphetamines (speed) as well. There is no easy way to find out which glandulars are real and which are not... except by seeing the healing effects. When you take a natural thyroid glandular, you will see improvements in your health: goiters shrink, basal temperature rises, pulse normalizes, immune system starts working, female problems disappear, etc..
The Sound Of Infection
Did you know that an infection shows up in your voice? In the computer voice print, the infection looks like an upside-down bowl, or, as my husband John says, a "hump".
Recently my daughter, Veronica, had a serious flu with an array of indications (high fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, sore throat, cough and sinus congestion). She got sick on a Tuesday and couldn't eat or take her enzymes. On Thursday I did a voice print and, wow, I saw her infection... a big hump in her vocal range (one octave below middle C). From the note at the peak of the hump I calculated 3 possible sounds. She liked 2 of them and I told her to use them as often as she wished.
Before the sound therapy her oxygenation was poor and her pulse was rapid and erratic. The sounds immediately started raising her oxygenation and lowering her pulse. She listened to her sounds 4 times that day for several minutes each time. After the first session she was hungry and this was the end of her fever, vomiting and sore throat. After her 4th session her oxygenation and pulse had returned to normal.
On Friday, I rechecked her voice. The infection (hump) was gone!! On Saturday she went out for dinner and was ready to catch up on her homework.
On my recent 5-day trip to the Bay Area (just 7 days after returning from Puerto Vallarta), I had a major schedule: 2 TV shows, a book-signing / lecture, a radio show and 23 patients.
I got sick the night I arrived, but didn't realize it until 2 days later when I awoke with a sinus infection, scratchy throat and deep bronchial congestion. In addition to my usual enzymes, I started hourly doses of the following regime: SvG (sore throat), Nsl (stuffy nose), Kdy (swollen glands), TRMA (infection), Rsp (coughing), and Citricidal (my favorite natural antibiotic)... and lots of herbal teas.
Although I made it through the hectic trip, when I got off the plane in Eugene, I could hardly breathe. I got home and John immediately took a voice print. We saw 2 humps in the vocal range and a third in the middle C range. "No problem!", I said. "Zap them all".
In the beginning, my pulse raged between 75 and 130 bpm. My oxygenation was poor (85-91%). The first day I listened to the middle C range. I felt better, but not well enough. My pulse was still erratic and my oxygenation still low. The second day I listened to the sounds derived from the vocal range humps. The humps (in my voice print) disappeared in 1 day! Again, I felt better, but needed more.
On the third day, we looked at my voice print and saw... the mother hump. This hump was so large we had not been able to see it earlier. We were amazed and excited. We programmed 4 more sounds into my tone box and I listened. After 15 minutes, my oxygenation had increased to 95% - a very good sign. From then on, my healing progressed rapidly. I breathed more deeply, coughed less and was able to continue my 12 hour/day work schedule.
Because of enzyme therapy and sound therapy, I got well in 7 days without missing a single day of work.
Can sound therapy eliminate infections that cannot be reached by antibiotics? This opens up an exciting new field for me. What about infections that result from root canals? And what about difficult to treat infections, such as Lyme disease and hidden viruses? What about the bacteria that cause "gum disease", that doctors say is incurable?
