Optimizers

Sometimes a patient needs more than those nutrients such as vitamin A, Carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, Alfa lipoic Acid, and vitamin B. If a patient is suffering from lasting fatigue or a chronic degenerative disease, he is under even more oxidative stress than normal, so I add what I call optimizers to his supplement program. These are antioxidants that are proven to be extremely potent. Nutritional companies are continually looking for more and more potent antioxidants but presently the best is ‘grape seed’ extract which is loaded with proanthacyanidins. These are very potent antioxidants that fall in a group of antioxidants called bioflavanoids, found in the colourful parts of fruits.

Grape seed extract offers antioxidants that are 50 times more potent than vitamin E and 20 times more potent than vitamin C when used with all of the other antioxidants and supporting nutrients. Used alone, it is only 6 to seven times more potent than vitamin E and 3 to 4 rimes more potent than vitamins C.Don’t forget one of the most important characteristics of grape seed extract, the facts that it crosses through the blood brain barrier easily. In other words it gets in to the fluid around the brain, spinal cord, and nerves most readily.

For fatigued patients I usually recommend adding at least 100-200 mg of grape seed extract, depending on the severity of their problem. It usually will only take four to six weeks. Now patients are able to notice a significant improvement and feel normal again.Patients who are already suffering from a chronic degenerative disease such as heart, cancer or Parkinson are already in serious trouble these patients need significantly more potent antioxidants. The first optimizer doctors usually choose is grape seed extract, but for those struggling with chronic disease. I also use as optimizers in these various chronic degenerative diseases.

Optimal Levels of Nutrition

If you are a Medical Practitioner, you know vitamin E, Selenium, Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin C are simply nutrients that we should be getting from our food. But we continue to study them as if they were drugs.

Drugs must go through rigorous clinical trials to assure that they are safe and effective, because they are synthetic substances that disrupt natural enzyme systems in order to create a therapeutic result. Vitamin E, Vitamin C, selenium are actually natural substances that support natural enzyme, antioxidant and immune systems. We now have the means of producing nutritional supplements, we are able to provide these nutrients at optimal levels. Optimal levels are those levels that have been shown to provide a health benefit in the medical literature.

Cellular nutrition is simply providing all nutrients to the cell at optimal levels this allows the cell to decide what it really does and does not need. I don’t have to worry about determining in which nutrients the cell is deficient.

What are Variable Stars?

All stars do not shine with equal brightness. Some shine brightly, some a little fainter, and some brightness could vary through time. Variable stars can be divided into five groups. The most famous variable star is Algol, named ‘The Demon’ by the Arabs. Many variable stars pulsate and expand in a regular rhythm. On the contrary, there are stars that are not so regular. These include the red gaint star Betelgeuse in Orion, or mira in the constellation of Cetus. The most interesting variable stars are those called novae, a Latin word, meaning new. They are not newly born, and after years of being faint, suddenly become bright, exploding, and scattering debris all around.

What are Cepheids?

A Cepheid is a young star of several solar masses. A Cepheid variable is a large group of giant and super giant stars, bright yellow in colour, named after the constellation Cepheus. They do not shine with the same brightness. This is because the stars keep contracting and expanding periodically. They are five to twenty times larger than the sun. The astronomer Hubble, identified galaxies outside the milky way while observing Cepheid variable stars.

What are Quarks and Leptons?

We know that all matter is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of particles known as electrons, protons, and neutrons.

But did you know that these particles are made up of tiny, tiny sub particles called Quarks and Leptons? There are three quarks each in the proton and the neutron of every atom. Quarks are invisible, even with a powerful microscope, but they exist all the same. Leptons are also light weight particles, and together with quarks, they from the basic building blocks of matter. Although the early Universe contained many massive particles, Leptons and quarks are the particles that survived the chaos and turmoil following the Big Bang, and they are still around today.

What are Magellanic Clouds?

The Magellanic Clouds are one of our nearest neighbors in the Universe. They are three irregular shaped galaxies that lie some 150,000 to 200,000 light years from Earth. They are visible from the southern Hemisphere, and appear to naked eye as two separate patches of light – The large and Small Magellanic Clouds.

Observations of the Small Magellanic Clouds in the early 1980’s revealed that it consists of two galaxies lying along the same line of sight. They are named after the Portuguese Navigator Magellan, and in the Southern Hemisphere, sailors use them to find the direction in which they are sailing.

What are Quasars?

At the very edge of the visible Universe, Scientists can see extremely bright and powerful objects called Quasars. They are most distant objects visible in the Universe. Quasars are about the size of our solar system, but produce more light and energy than 1000 galaxies!

Quasars are important because they show us what the universe was like billions of years ago. The light from Quasars takes billions of years to reach us. When we look at a Quasar we see what they looked like in the distant past. Because other galaxies even our own, may have been Quasars once, we can see what the Universe was like long ago.

Who discover X-Rays

Wilhelm Konrad Rontgen a German physicist, who first discovered x-rays also called Rontgen rays in 1895. He was the first to receive the Novel Prize in physics in 1901.

Rontgen was appointed professor of physics, at Wurzburg in 1888. In 1895, as he was investigating the properties of cathode rays, he produced the first x-rays photographs, showing the bones in his wife’s hands.

Who created the Periodic Table

Russian chemist Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleyev is famous for drawing up the Periodic table which shows their similarities and differences.He was born in Tobolsk, Siberia on February 8, 1834. In 1869 in the course of writing a textbook, he arranged the known elements according to their properties in ascending order of their Atomic weight. He found that Chemically similar elements fall into the same columns. He presented his final form of the table in 1871 with the 63 known elements exhibiting a striking pattern or periodicity.

Remember me – 101

The transuranic element mendelevium (Atomic number 101) is named in his honour. Presented by :- Dr. Prashant(Medical Practitioner)

Pioneer of Antiseptic Medicine

Josheph Lister is regarded as the father of Antiseptic Medicine. He was born in Lipton, England on April 5, 1827.

In 1861, Lister became a surgeon at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary, and noticed that almost 50% of the operated patients died from infection (sepsis). Learning from Pasteur ‘s theory that microorganisms causes infection, Lister soaked his surgical instrument in phenol (carbolic acid), and Antiseptic. He observed that this process controlled infections, and reduced the number of deaths.

He published a series of articles on Antiseptic system in 1867 which revolutionized modern surgery.
