Is Your Health Being Undermined by This Common but Deadly Sleep Disorder?

Several years ago, at the request of my dear wife, I got tested for sleep apnea, and it probably saved my life. She had patiently endured my snoring, but as a nurse, she was disturbed by the increasing frequency of episodes when I appeared to stop breathing – as well as my increasing weight gain and levels of fatigue and irritability. So off to the sleep center I went…

In case you aren’t familiar with this condition, apnea means “no breath,” and obstructive sleep apnea is the periodic stoppage of breathing while asleep. It is caused by a partial or complete blockage of the airway by the tissues in the back of the throat. Oxygen levels in the blood drop and carbon dioxide rises, waking you up just enough to start breathing, but not enough to be aware of the feeling of terror that comes with not being able to breathe. For those who have severe sleep apnea, the result is you wake up feeling exhausted, perhaps covered in sweat and often with a dry mouth and sore throat.

People who suffer with even mild sleep apnea get sleepy during the day, and it’s no wonder. This continuous arousal prevents them from getting adequate rapid eye movement (REM) sleep—the deepest, most rejuvenating and essential level of sleep.

During my evaluation for sleep apnea, I had 110 attacks of apnea (spells when I stopped breathing for 10 seconds or longer) in one hour. Not a good thing! My oxygen level was low, and I got virtually no restorative REM sleep.

Sleep Apnea Is Catastrophic to Your Overall Health

A ton of research reveals links between sleep deprivation and a broad range of health concerns. In addition to making you exhausted and cranky, poor sleep can trash your memory and mood, make you gain weight, raise your blood pressure and blood sugar, stress your immune system, increase your risk of diabetes, stroke, heart attack, and dementia.

Sleep apnea can set off a cascading nightmare of deteriorating health that spirals out of control before you know it. The combination of deprivation of REM sleep plus other ill effects of sleep apnea (such as significant drops in oxygen levels in the blood, fluctuations in hormone levels, and elevations in blood pressure, heart rate, and cardiac output) wreaks havoc on the body.

Lower blood oxygen levels in men who have severe sleep apnea slows testosterone production in the testes, resulting in weight gain, loss of energy and stamina, impaired focus and motivation and even lead to chronic anxiety or depression.

According to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, people with sleep apnea have three times the risk of developing high blood pressure as those without this sleep problem. Sleep apnea is also an independent risk factor for coronary artery disease and stroke. These conditions are associated with increased levels of oxidative stress, C-reactive protein, and clotting factors, and all of these are elevated in people with sleep apnea. Cardiac arrhythmias and congestive heart failure are also much more common among sleep apnea sufferers.

It is said that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from sleep apnea to some degree. There is also a significant relationship between sleep apnea, elevated blood sugar and insulin, and insulin resistance. Severe sleep apnea is associated with a five-fold increased risk of diabetes. Obesity, a related condition, is also associated with sleep apnea, although the exact relationship is harder to understand since obesity is often a primary cause of sleep apnea as well. Erectile problems, immune dysfunction, memory loss and concentration difficulties… the list of problems associated with sleep apnea goes on and on.

The Most Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment

When I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, I immediately began using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine, which is a device worn at night that delivers a steady stream of air to keep the airways open. I couldn’t believe how much it improved my quality of life. Some people complain that their CPAPs or APAPs (an automatic version of CPAP) are uncomfortable, and they do take some getting used to.

Since I started using this sleep apnea treatment, I’ve slept without my CPAP machine only rarely, and not by choice. I may occasionally forget to pack something, but I (almost) never forget my CPAP because I am so convinced of the tremendous benefits offered by a good night’s sleep.

Automatic and continuous positive airway pressure (APAP and CPAP) machines are hands down the best-studied and most effective treatment for sleep apnea. Attempting to lose weight without a CPAP is very difficult because each episode of apnea releases stress hormones that promote weight gain. Although I’ve been using this therapy myself for years and have never had any problems, I do understand that not everyone tolerates it so well. For me, I found that a small mask covering only my nose worked much better than a full face mask.

According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, compliance rates hover around 60 percent, and mask discomfort and nasal issues are common roadblocks. However, because sleep apnea has such serious adverse effects on your health, the benefits of treatment far outweigh the discomforts of the therapy. That’s why, if you are diagnosed with sleep apnea and prescribed APAP or CPAP, you need to work with your doctor to try different masks, a humidifier, and other potential solutions before giving up on it.

Secondary Treatments for Sleep Apnea

I wish there was a proven alternative to CPAP/APAP for those who simply cannot tolerate this sleep apnea treatment. Oral appliances, dental interventions, surgical procedures, and positional therapies are certainly worth a try, but can’t guarantee results. That being said, everyone with sleep apnea can and should use natural therapies to address underlying health problems such as thyroid insufficiency, insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome.

Almost everyone with sleep apnea will benefit from losing weight. In fact, adequate weight loss will completely eliminate the condition in many, and losing 20 to 30 pounds will result in significant improvements. Avoiding alcohol may also be helpful. This is especially true for individuals with mild cases, who may snore and have episodes of apnea only after having a drink. Taking sedatives or analgesics at bedtime can have similar effects, so getting off such drugs may help.

Research published in 2009 suggested that specific throat exercises can help by preventing airway collapse during sleep, resulting in better sleep, less snoring, a significant reduction in neck circumference, and an overall decrease in sleep apnea.

Here are a few of the exercises you can do on your own:

1) Repeat the vowels (A, E, I, O, U) over and over again exaggerating enunciation.
2) Do multiple long, drawn-out yawning movements, opening your mouth wide and tightening the muscles in the back of your throat.
3) Push your tongue up against the back of your front teeth, slowly run it back over the roof of your mouth as far as you can, then slide the tongue back to its original position against the front teeth. Per the study, about 30 minutes daily of these and similar exercises, which can be done throughout the day, are required for maximum benefits.

Bottom Line: Sleep Apnea is Deadly if Left Untreated!

If you snore, are overweight, and/or have metabolic syndrome, you need to get tested for sleep apnea. If you are or have been diagnosed with this condition, try the CPAP/APAP treatments, start an exercise and weight loss regimen, and take supplements that naturally address some of the underlying issues associated with it. Dramatic changes in sleep apnea symptoms are usually seen in patients losing a mere 10-15% of their body weight as fat.

Logos Nutritionals offers several supplements that can be tremendously helpful. First, for those who need to safely lose weight, MagnifiThin is a wonderful aid to boost metabolism and curb your appetite. For those battling with insulin resistance or Metabolic Syndrome, FitCose 1C is a remarkable breakthrough blood sugar support formula. Last but certainly not least, Sleep Advance has proven to be a superior solution for calming the mind and promoting deep, restful sleep.

THREE RESOLUTIONS WORTH KEEPING

 

Its two thirdbigstock-I-m-The-Best-324629s of the way through January now. Have you, like most Americans, already come up short on keeping your new year’s resolutions if you even bothered with them at all this year? We start out with the best of intentions, but so easily end up getting distracted by the hectic pace and inevitable chaos of life.

 

Despite the advantages of living in the “Information Age” with easy access to all manner of conveniences that are designed to maximize our productivity and quality of life, we are living in challenging times. Our bodies and minds are being bombarded with unprecedented levels of stress. From the relentless demands of immediate interpersonal access (smart phones) to the cumulative burdens of environmental and emotional toxicity associated with living in these days, we would be wise to heed the words of the Apostle Paul who exhorts us to “Be no longer conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds”. (Romans 12:2)

Even though we recognize that our body is a temple, it is far too easy to take it for granted and mortgage our future with poor choices today. With that in mind, lets look at a few concrete changes or resolutions that are well worth incorporating into our day to day living for 2015 and beyond:

1. HYDRATE – Dehydration is rampant in our culture, and the insidious toll it takes on your health is even more so considering how easily avoidable it is. The leading cause of kidney stones and constipation, dehydration bogs down your metabolism, making even your cells tired. Make cool filtered water (and a little fresh lemon to help alkalize the body) your drink of choice today, and toss the sodas (especially diet). Drink at least a half ounce of water per pound of body weight per day, and up to twice that amount if you exercise (which you should) or drink alcohol or caffeine (which perhaps you shouldn’t – certainly not in excess).

2. GET MOVING – Regular moderate exercise will do wonders for your metabolism, your energy level, your dress or pant size, and your outlook on life. Not to mention all those infamous markers of health such as blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels that your doctor uses to assess your body’s obvious lack of pharmaceuticals. Forty five minutes of brisk walking three times a week is enough to make dramatic improvements, but adding some anaerobic exercise and light weight bearing repetitions will greatly enhance and diversify your results (i.e.- bone mass gains,etc.).

3. EAT TO LIVE – We have never had so many choices of foods (and cheaply manufactured items masquerading as food) to eat as Americans do today. Only in the last generation has the demand for consumer convenience and extended shelf life made such a happy marriage, creating massive conglomerates that enjoy obscene profits at the expense of our ignorance and our health.

The “patterns of this world” are ever changing in response to the insatiable lusts of mankind, but make no mistake; the things of this world are fiercely set against the wisdom of God and His children. Paul could scarcely have imagined that 2,000 years after he wrote those inspired words, we would be sitting on the couch mindlessly watching television and snacking on fast foods and soda or a highly processed mixture of genetically modified grains, sugar and toxic fats with a few synthetic vitamins added back in to create an illusion of wholesomeness. God knew that the message He gave to the first century church to avoid the corruption of this world would be pure wisdom for all ages, but especially so in these last days.

In order to eat to live, we need to eat living food, and living food does not generally come processed in a box. Reject the foolishness of man’s wisdom and its culture of death, and take advantage of the wonderful diversity of nutrient dense, organic foods that God has made readily available.

Granted, this is easier said than done, as man’s greed has corrupted all of our food sources to some extent through factory farming, genetic engineering and the indiscriminate use of hormones, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, antibiotics, and a host of other synthetic chemicals that are ever escalating our toxic burden. It is no wonder that so many people suffer from chronic degenerative illnesses, the symptoms of which are the body’s way of revealing a compromised bioterrain within.

This is where Logos Nutritionals and the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol can make such a profound difference in one’s quality of life. The authentic natural medicines that we offer are designed to strengthen the body’s detoxification pathways, restore the integrity of organ systems and revitalize cellular energy and immunity. My father once pointed out to me that “Man turns to excellence just as surely as a flower to the sun”. This is true, whether in the beauty of the arts, the dependable efficacy of a nutritional supplement, or the thrill of athletic competition. We rejoice in the opportunity to serve, both through the quality of our products and the priceless impact of the message of God’s love that we share.

The three resolutions presented here are ones that must be embraced as a lifestyle if you hope to thrive during these difficult times. There are others that may be more obvious and pressing such as stopping smoking or any habit that may be holding you back from achieving your goals. Personally, having for the most part successfully internalized these big three over the years, my main resolution for this year is to write more consistently. To that end, I wholeheartedly solicit the prayers of my readers.

So here’s to 2015; may it be a year of breakthrough in your health, your attitude and your relationships!

After All These Years, Why is “Modern Medicine” Still Bleeding its Patients?

22073517_mThere was a time when the best medicine had to offer was a good bloodletting. From ancient times up to the nineteenth century, blood and other bodily fluids were regarded as “humors” that had to remain in proper balance to maintain health. In medieval Europe, bloodletting became the standard treatment for everything from epilepsy and gout to the plague. It is said that our first president, George Washington, owed his premature demise in part to excessive blood loss from bloodletting.

Today bloodletting remains a conventional therapy for a very small number of conditions such as hemochromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes a toxic accumulation of iron in the body. In this case, bloodletting is the best way to lower the serum iron load. Having been largely rejected as an archaic procedure, bloodletting is once again receiving attention thanks to a 2012 study published in the journal BMC Medicine which suggested that bloodletting might offer cardiovascular benefits to obese people with metabolic syndrome.

Such legitimate benefits notwithstanding, one can only wonder how many people have suffered or died needlessly over the centuries due to the ignorance and arrogance of entrenched medical dogma, especially when taken to extremes. While the advancement of medical knowledge and technology have reduced needless suffering and death for some, the historic marriage of the medical establishment to corporate interests forever changed the face and focus of medicine, exposing all of us to “bleeding” of a different kind.

Its All About Profit

Why is it that drugs so often go about their work in such a clumsy way? Even though most drugs are engineered to target a very precise outcome and mask specific symptoms, the universal laws of cause and effect almost always lead to unintended side effects. These side effects, which become known during the discovery phase of researching a new drug, can be devastating. However, they are sometimes nullified, engulfed in a mountain of “data” and overlooked as an “acceptable risk” when assessing the overall profit potential of a drug.

Obviously not all drugs are bad, and some are even miraculous, but some (such as statins, anti-resorption drugs, proton pump inhibitors and flu vaccines) will go down in history as infinitely more barbaric than bloodletting or any other crude form of medicine. This tragic retrospective judgement of such draconic drugs will be multiplied by the vast numbers of innocent people who suffered from taking them and the obscene profits that were generated through their suffering.

A Road To Hope

As a manufacturer of authentic natural medicines, I cannot imagine bringing to market a product that I knew would bring harm or suffering to a certain percentage of those who took it, much less sudden death. Supplements by definition cannot treat disease by targeting symptoms, and that turns out to be a blessing. Rather than masking symptoms, natural medicines focus on causes, providing nutrients that target metabolic deficits and support compromised organs or systems that contribute to illness.

If you or someone you love is dealing with chronic illness or you just want to maximize your quality of life, take a look at the life transforming supplements that make up the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol and other natural medicines divinely crafted and offered with love by Logos Nutritionals. Their only side effects are HEALTH AND HOPE RESTORED!

What to Eat?

EAE I am often asked which diet is best to promote good health and longevity.  Sounds like a simple enough question doesn’t it?  If so, why is it that you get so many different answers to that question depending on which “expert” you ask? The short answer is “It depends”.  Not much help, eh? Indeed.

That is to say there are a number of factors which determine what an optimum diet looks like for an individual, from metabolic type and other genetic influences to lifestyle and cultural factors, to food quality and availability. Also adding to the confusion is the multitude of voices out there vying for our attention to hawk their thinly veiled, hastily packaged self seeking agendas (i.e. – diet fad of the month).

Further complicating things is the fact that in some cases, what once was truth may no longer be valid due to the cumulative corrupting influence of mankind’s lust for power and money (i.e. – infiltration of the natural foods industry by Big Pharma/Ag/Chem Industries).  This is the most dangerous of all the factors mentioned, as what our society now accepts as normal (genetically modified, prepackaged frankenfoods, artificial sweeteners, chemical and bioweapons, etc.) has only recently been unleashed upon mankind in the last generation.

So where do we turn for truth in these last days?  Why to God’s word of course! For “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16-17)

The apostle Paul could scarcely imagine the predicament our generation would find themselves facing when he penned the following admonition from God’s mouth: “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2)

God’s word has a lot to say about the subject of diet. But how does one put all of its dietary wisdom into proper context with today’s world circumstances? Who among us has the knowledge to combine scriptural truths with a thorough understanding of human physiology and nutrition? In my opinion, Sylvia Zook PhD does, and she has lovingly and thoughtfully captured that knowledge in her wonderful book Eatin After Eden.

I enthusiastically recommend her book as required reading for anyone who wants to better understand the relationship between their diet, their health and how scripture applies to both. May God continue to protect and richly bless Dr. Zook in her ministry efforts.  She is truly a modern day “voice in the wilderness”.

Walk Your Way to Health!

bigstock-Walk-Park-6203045 "Walking is man’s best medicine." –Hippocrates

Earlier this year, I began a daily walking program in earnest after researching all of the many health benefits that walking offers. I literally walked my way right out of a chronic low back pain episode. However, it is what I have learned through the experience of walking that has been most astounding.

Hidden Benefits of Walking

Pretty much everyone is familiar with the cardiovascular health benefits of walking – lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, blood pressure and sugar levels, and enhancing circulation and lymphatic exchange. Likewise, most people are familiar with the protective health benefits of walking, such as enhanced metabolism and weight loss, increased bone density, reduced risk of breast and colon cancer, diabetes, strokes and heart attacks, and increased longevity.

Lesser known benefits of walking include:

• Enhanced Mental Acuity

• Relief from Stress, Depression and/or Anxiety

• Strengthening of Core/Relief of Low Back Pain

• Improved Balance and Coordination

• Better Sleep

• Increased Sexual Desire and Satisfaction

Scientists have recently found that regular brisk walking can even activate genes involved in promoting fat metabolism, and targeting the all important abdominal fat in particular.

So What Makes Walking So Uniquely Beneficial?

In a word, oxygen. Walking is an aerobic exercise that – when done correctly – simultaneously floods the body tissues with ideal amounts of oxygen and other nutrients while eliminating cellular toxins and wastes through lymphatic stimulation. This “cellular breathing” happens for an extended period of time without creating undue stress on mechanical body parts or cellular energy systems.

Think about it. When is the last time you sat around deep breathing for thirty minutes? If you did, how long would it take for you to feel lightheaded? Walking creates the perfect amount of exertion to use up excess oxygen without overwhelming cellular detoxification potential. Think of walking like stoking the fire in your fireplace. Just like a fire, you are oxidizing fuel – only at a reduced rate. When you bring in more oxygen, you increase the rate of metabolism and burn more fuel, and you do so more efficiently.

The Key to Maximizing Benefits is to Focus on Your Breathing

As a young long distance runner, I learned the importance of rhythmic breathing to maintain adequate oxygen levels and avoid the buildup of lactic acid in the muscles. Marathon runners train for countless miles to enhance their body’s cellular energy potential so they can keep up with the rigorous demands of a long race.

Fortunately, you don’t have to become a marathon runner to maximize all the incredible benefits of walking. Walk at a brisk enough pace to take four steps on the inhale and four steps on the exhale. This will force you to breathe deeply but naturally – in through the nose, out through the mouth. When you climb a steep hill (hopefully your walking course does contain at least two long hills), switch to three steps per breath to compensate for the increased work load. When you top the hill, continue with the faster breathing until you recover (usually a tenth of a mile or so for me) and then resume the four step pace.

This breathing strategy works very well for running too, with a two step breathing pace added for sprinting. Older walkers that walk with a slower gait may need to pace themselves with three steps per breath and switch to two steps on hills.

How Much is Enough?

According to a recent U.S. Surgeon General report on physical activity and health in America, more than half of the U.S. population does not participate regularly in any type of exercise. Most exercise experts recommend thirty minutes of activity per week day. Taking 10,000 steps over the course of a day is roughly equivalent to 30 minutes of moderately vigorous exercise.

A diabetes prevention program for people who are overweight showed that walking 150 minutes a week can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by nearly 60 percent. Women in the Nurse’s Health Study (72,488 female nurses) who walked three hours or more per week reduced their risk of a heart attack or other coronary event by 35% compared with women who did not walk.

Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis put a group of men and women, ages 60 to 70, on a nine to twelve month exercise program that consisted of walking or jogging. On average, the subjects exercised 45 minutes several times a week. By the end of the study, both the men and the women had lost weight, and primarily from the abdominal area. However, in most studies of overweight people who progressively increased their periods of walking over a year’s time, no weight loss occurred until their walking exceeded 30 minutes a day.

It appears that 30 minutes a day is the minimum that will provide you with all the benefits of walking except weight loss. Every minute added will bring about more weight loss until you eventually reach your ideal body weight. I have targeted a minimum of 45 minutes for my walks, although I will sometimes take off for ten minutes or so just to break up the tension caused by prolonged periods of working at the computer.

Walking Tips

The following tips will help you get the most out of your walking program:

• Get the right gear – Choose shoes with proper arch support, a firm heel and thick flexible soles to cushion your feet and absorb shock. If you walk after dark, wear bright colors or reflective tape for visibility. Don’t use dumbbells; they will only stress your joints. Walking poles look funny but they do add a significant upper body workout and help you climb hills.

• Walk alone or with a committed partner, no distractions, limit talking, focus on your breathing. Breathe in fresh air; breathe out stress, negative thoughts and emotions. Once you master the breathing patterns, focus on prayer and enjoying God’s presence. Just as He walked with Adam and Eve in the garden, He loves to walk with us.

• Choose your course carefully – Walk outdoors if possible for fresh air and Vitamin D. Avoid paths with cracked sidewalks, potholes, low-hanging limbs or uneven turf. Once you build up your strength and stamina, consider trail walking as it increases calories burned by up to 80%.

• Warm up – Walk slowly for first five minutes to warm up your muscles and prepare your body for exercise.

• In Summer, walk early or late to beat the heat. Remember to hydrate. In Winter, cover your ears and hands and wear layers.

• Pay Attention to Posture – Keep your head level as you walk and look straight ahead. Bend your elbows slightly and keep them close to your sides. Swing your arms back and forth as you walk. Let your heel strike the ground first, then roll from the heel to the ball of your foot. This will help you avoid shin splints.

• Stretch – After you cool down, gently stretch your muscles.

Remember, the faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits! Researchers have found a remarkably consistent association between faster walking speed and longer life. So begin your walking program today and claim your happier, leaner, and healthier future!

Can Dietary Supplements Reverse ADD, Enhance Memory, and Slow Cognitive Decline?

MagnifiMind My son has always loved basketball.  We made some wonderful memories together as I coached his little league teams until their talent and skills outgrew my expertise as a coach.  Each season I could count on having at least one young man on our team who had been labeled with and medicated for some form of mental impairment such as ADD, hyperactivity or both.

In a private meeting with the parents of the “problem child”, I would share with them about my personal struggles with undiagnosed ADD growing up.  I would emphasize how important educating themselves and their child is to developing strategies to have their child not only cope, but to thrive.

I would share with them how destructive refined sugar is to the body and how it feeds into the whole syndrome of ADD and ADHD. I would explain how important omega three fats are for proper brain function, especially DHA which is quite literally brain food.  Essential omegas like DHA are a principal component in the building and maintaining of synapses, the junctions between brain and nerve cells.

Predictably, some parents listened, others did not.  The ones who did listen and heeded good advice would invariably come up to me half way through the season and thank me, saying “Johnny’s teacher called to ask me what we have done with our son… He is like a different child”.

Encouraged by those experiences and my own progress in overcoming challenges of maintaining focus, I began to examine the research behind the promise of mental enhancement through nutritional support.  The more I learned about the potential of mind enhancement herbs and nutrients, the more excited I became.  Having evaluated the claims and science behind many different brain support nutrients, I set out with plans to include a brain health supplement in our company’s product line expansion this year.

Our goal with the formulation was to design a supplement that would – without the use of stimulants – improve mental performance in the young and slow cognitive decline in the elderly.  We researched substances that elevate energy levels in the brain by improving circulation (bringing in greater oxygen and nutrient supply) and sought out the best acetyl choline enhancers to improve memory, concentration and focus.  Acetyl choline enhancers inhibit acetyl cholinesterase, an enzyme that degrades neurotransmitters and decreases synaptic transmissions in the brain.

We looked at hundreds of compounds, herbs and nutrients and eliminated all but the most promising for optimal brain function.  We selected nutrients that are known to slow age-related decline in learning capacity and memory retention and prevent degenerative nerve cell changes in certain areas of the brain. The culmination of our efforts is MagnifiMind™, a cutting edge blend of ingredients that are clinically proven to enhance memory, improve concentration and increase mental alertness.

Early feedback from this supplement has been nothing short of spectacular, and we believe MagnifiMind™ from Logos Nutritionals is destined to become a blockbuster hit in the world of natural medicine.  Try it today and “Release Your Inner Mensa”… you will be glad that you did!

Fungal Infection – A Common Threat Underlying Morgellons and Other Chronic Illnesses

According to a recent case study on Morgellons Disease, one common disease factor found in Morgellons patients is fungal infection.  Fungal infection places a constant burden on the immune system and the body’s detoxification pathways… which may in part explain why Morgellons patients so often end up with various multiple infections and parasitic infestations. 

It is difficult to say whether yeast overgrowth is a causal factor or a symptom of rapidly emerging  illnesses like Morgellons, but either way, it seems a wise course of action to control yeast infection and fungal overgrowth in the body.  Fungal infection is being implicated more and more in a number of degenerative illnesses including thyroid disorders, obesity, IBS and cancer.

In order to respond to this emerging threat, Logos Nutritionals just announced the release of a new cutting edge antifungal formula called Candida Rid.  Candida Rid is a comprehensive blend of antifungal herbs and nutrients that is designed to lower the body’s level of yeast and other unwanted pathogens. 

Some natural practitioners estimate that 70-80% of Americans are struggling with candidiasis yeast infection or some form of fungal overgrowth.  Logos’ Candida Cleanse Protocol includes Candida Rid and Liver CS Plus (for detox support) along with probiotics and digestive enzymes to restore digestion. L- Glutamine is included to help curb sweet cravings and restore the lining of the gut.
