Subject: Three simple steps to reduce your risk of heart attack

February 25, 2009

In the December 27 e-Alert, we wrote to you about a new way to assess your risk of heart disease. It’s the ratio between apolipoprotein B (apo B) and apolipoprotein A-1 (apo A-1), and studies have shown it can be even more meaningful than the HDL/LDL ratio. In fact, in the study I wrote about last month, men with the highest levels of apo B and the lowest levels of apo A-1 were nearly FOUR TIMES as likely to have a fatal heart attack than those with opposite values. (You can view this e-Alert on our website, www.hsibaltimore.com, on the “Current e-Alerts” page.)

Health Sciences Institute e-Alert – August 12, 2003

February 5, 2009

If you’re, say, a few years on either side of 50 years old, then your pituitary gland is doing a far less efficient job of releasing somatotropin (or human growth hormone – hGH) into the bloodstream than it did when you were 20. And as you grow older, your pituitary’s hGH output will diminish a little more each year.

Nattokinase

January 28, 2009

• A Potent and Safe Thrombolytic: By Martin Milner, N.D.

Clotting is a key, often overlooked factor in chronic illness, and with
nattokinase, we know how to reverse it. This is where the real treasure of
this enzyme lies. Disorders such as heart disease, hypertension, fibromyalgia,
chronic infection, inflammatory bowel disease, deep vein thrombosis, may
respond to nattokinase.

MediTropin

In the 1970’s world famous pharmacologist James Jamieson, a specialist in pharmaceutical delivery systems, decided to take on the challenge of producing the world’s first effective growth hormone in an oral dosage form, a project many believed to be impossible. His work led him to the discovery of over 300 molecules he calls chaperone molecules that are used to protect this sensitive compound from hydrochloric acid, facilitate absorption and aid in transport to the receptor sites.

ph Goals, Instructions and Graphing

January 27, 2009

To gain insight into your ability to maintain acid/alkaline balance day by day, I would like you to use a simple and very inexpensive test. The acid/alkaline state of your body can be evaluated by measuring the pH of your urine and saliva. This is achieved by dipping a short strip of pH paper that measures in 0.2 of a pH unit onto your urine and saliva and measuring the color change on the test strip. Accurate and properly calibrated pH strips are available for $10 at the Center for Natural Medicine Mail Order Dispensary online at www.cnm-inc.com or toll free at 1-888-305-4288.
