LTR #004.5

The intuitiveness of retired helicopter pilots

by Alan Graham with Alfred Lehmberg

(Updated: April 12, 2007)

This letter #004.5 is to point out 3 recent developments that demonstrate the intuitiveness of retired helicopter pilots as opposed to practicing medical doctors.

First: ‘Vioxx’ was pulled from the shelves because it can cause death by heart failure. This revelation was on all the news outlets for weeks. For those of you at the presentation I gave in the first week of September to an enthusiastic crowd of Living Tree patrons, et al, I emphasized the danger of taking Cox 2 inhibitors like Vioxx and Celebrex . This was not just because they exacerbated joint pain in the long run (while only treating the symptom of pain in the short run), but , because of their indiscriminate interference with the delicate balance within the prostaglandin 2 pathway. These drugs consequently block the good with the alleged “bad”, resulting in a number of possible negative responses like oh, …I don’t know — HEART FAILURE!

This is what’s wrong with “Centrum”

The Ballad of Cheap Vitamins and Motor Oil

by Alan Graham with Alfred Lehmberg

(Updated: April 12, 2007)

Every time I ask someone if they eat a healthy diet and take a good multivitamin/mineral, they invariably say, “yes”. They go on to explain how they first follow the new food pyramid (consuming lots of bread, pasta, cereal, fruit juice & milk)… …and then they tell me they take a “Centrum” multi to, you know, insure they are covered from “A” to “Zinc”. They smile benignly at the witticism…

I’ll cut right to the chase. The preceding is a recipe for rampant unhealthful disaster.

This is how *they* demonize the low-carb lifestyle

by Alan Graham with Alfred Lehmberg

(Updated: April 10, 2007)

The most powerful corporations and institutions in the world are strongly aligned against the low-carb (Atkins’ Diet) movement. *They* will stop at nothing, in fact, to keep you well confused and so innocently consuming their ubiquitous poisons… poisons such as sugar, Poly-unsat. Food Oil (like Soy, Corn, etc.), partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (pHVO), bread, cereal, processed snack foods, and pharmaceutical drugs.

This is the “Antacid Myth”

by Alan Graham with Alfred Lehmberg

(Updated: April 10, 2007)

It is a cold hard fact that the older we get the ~less~ stomach acid (HCL with pepsin) we produce. We know mother nature not only works this way concerning gastric acid and digestive enzymes, but, so too, with pretty much ~all~ biologically necessary substances. For example, older people produce less glucosomine and SAMe, so arthritis develops. Additionally, advanced in years, people produce less COQ-10, so heart problems become an avoidable result.

This is the “Cholesterol Myth”

by Alan Graham with Alfred Lehmberg

(Updated: April 10, 2007)

Once upon a time in the late 60’s Dr. K. McCully, a brilliant Harvard scientist, did extensive research regarding the effects of folic acid, B-6, B-12 & Betaine (TMG) on homocysteine levels. He showed conclusively reader that these simple inexpensive B vitamins, plus the methyl-donor Tri-methyl-glycine (TMG), dramatically facilitated the breakdown of this corrosive amino acid.
