Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Severe Depression

These three conditions may respond to PREformed, Polyunsaturated Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation better than they respond to drugs

Reviewed June 2016
A challenge many health care professionals face (regardless of the type of practice):  patients who are plagued by a variety of neuropsychiatric problems.  Here we discuss three neuropsychiatric problems in particular: Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and Severe Depression.  These three have a common genetic link.  Life is very difficult for people with these condition, and for their family.  All neuropsychiatric disorders seem to benefit from fish oil supplementation and other Nutritional Supplements.

So, what is different about these 3 conditions?

Data suggest that Schizophrenia, Bipolar and Severe Depression conditions have an accelerated rate of loss of long chain EFAs (AA, DHA, EPA and DGLA) from the Sn2 position of membrane phospholipids.  The use of Ultra Omega-Linic in these situations is effective for two reasons.

1.    The high EPA in Ultra Omega-Linic quenches the over-activity of of the enzyme responsible for this loss; and
2.    Ultra Omega-Linic contains (and replaces) the particular EFAs that were lost due to the over-activity of the enzyme.

With time, compliance and patience the cell functions normalize - a huge benefit to the patient, the family and YOU!.

It is important that any pregnant mother receive Ultra Omega-Linic so that she can provide the necessary EFAs to the baby .  The baby takes what it needs for its own neurological development - especially while the brain and retina are developing.  This can deplete the mother's own body stores of EFAs. 

These particular neuropsychiatric conditions that we are discussing have a genetic link.  Therefore the problems run in the family.  If the mother is supplemented with EPA, DHA, and GLA during pregnancy and lactation (Dr Jones has recommended this since the mid 1990's), the problems may not manifest themselves in quite as negative a way - if they ever do!  Following this thought, the child should be supplemented all through infancy - and for life.

Pineapple

I had an eMail that was titled "A Simple Pineapple"I ask you-  is the pineapple really simple?
reviewed June 2016

The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family.  It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit.  The pineapple is the only available edible bromeliad.

Pineapple is a multiple fruit.  
One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of individual floweret's that grow together to form the entire fruit.  Each scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.  The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.  Color is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.  Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit.  After you cut off the top, you can plant it.  It should grow much like a sweet potato will.



 

Pineapple is a remarkable fruit.
This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many benefits to our health.
We find it enjoyable because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavor, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today.  If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis.


The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Let's look at how pineapple affects other conditions:
Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue.   A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.


It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.
Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value.  Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid.  It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.


Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory.  Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It also produces mild pain relief.

In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.  


Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it is high in Vitamin C.  Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the Bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.  If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet.  It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations.

Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies.  In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.


Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.


An old folk remedy for morning sickness is fresh pineapple juice. It really works!
Fresh juice and some nuts first thing in the morning often make a difference.
It's also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh juice discourages plaque growth.

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

This is the Scariest Piece of information we have come across.

Updated May 2016
 You probably know that drinking too much alcohol can damage your liver.   What you might not know is that too much sugar can lead to very similar severe liver problems.  Besides changing your diet to avoid high doses of sugar, Studies have shown that some nutritional supplements may be able to help support your liver.

The world-wide increase in the consumption of high fructose corn syrup parallels the increase in overweight people and obesity world wide!  Studies have shown that consumption of sucrose (which is glucose and fructose) and fructose (sugar) promotes fatty liver disease, whereas fatty acids from the diet do not.

Ps.  When you read the label on a can or a box - anything ending in ‘ose’ is sugar.

Insulin resistance or Type II Diabetes is always present with NAFLD and leads to triglyceride accumulation in the liver.  This process is associated with free radical generation, cell injury and fibrosis.

Medical approaches are relatively ineffective


An easy way to help yourself is to embrace the Low Carbohydrate lifestyle modification recommended by John Jones, MD, MPH.  At the very least, avoid high fructose corn syrup.   A daily intake of around 40 grams of carbohydrate is a good target.  This is much more important for blood sugar control and weight loss than counting calories or doing exercise.

If you know you have problems with Gluten and/or Milk you have probably already eliminated them from your diet.  This helps the GUT heal.

One effect of high consumption of fructose is bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine, which increases intestinal permeability. This also contributes to the development of NAFLD.   Another emerging hypothesis is that pathogenic GUT bacteria and fungi (they LOVE sugar) can produce alcohol, which further increases gut permeability and liver injury.

Read / download Dr Jones' NAFLD Nutritional Protocol

So, what can you do?  First (and most important) eliminate sugar and all processed high Carbohydrate foods. The Nutritional Supplements that help are:
  1. Essential Fatty AcidsUltra Omega-Linic contains high levels of EPA plus DHA, GLA and SDA
  2. A good Multi like Ultra Vites to support all the necessary biochemical functions
  3. A good Probiotic - Ultra 4x6 Probiotic contains 4 different organisms with a 6 billion CFU potency
  4. Antioxidants.  There are several that were studied, but those that are most protective of the liver and tha protect the cellular membranes from oxidative stress help the most
    1. Vitamin E 400 mixed tocopherols
    2. Vitamin C - Ultra C-1000
    3. Coenzyme Q10 - Ultra CoQ10 100
    4. Protect from Free Radicals with Radical Resilience - Milk Thistle, Bacopa, Melissa & Turmeric
  5. Ultra DM Complex - Specifically formulated for blood sugar problems - contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, Cinnamon and GTF Chromium
In summary: High fructose corn syrup gives you a triple knockout.
  1.  You get a high glycemic load which causes insulin resistance and diabetes.
  2. The storage of fat in the liver causes severe liver damage
  3. You could be setting yourself up for obesity, diabetes and liver cancer
