LEDs-an Eye Destroyer

Recently, I had a floater in my eye and was seeing flashes of light. My ophthalmologist said it was just old age.  I asked when it would heal, and he said that it would not. Then I discovered this by Dr. Alexander Wunsch, renown photo-biologist and ophthalmologist. “I call these LEDs – I like to call them Trojan horses because they appear so practical to us. They appear to have so many advantages. They save energy; they are solid state, very robust, for example. So, we invited them into our homes. But we are not aware that they have hidden properties, which are harmful to our (health), harmful to our mental health, harmful to our retinal health, and harmful to our hormonal health or endocrine health.”trojan

I just don’t understand how government reviews major changes to our environment without first reading the science.  It seems the only time environmental dangers are reviewed is when it is an economic benefit to government.  Alarms have gone off about how LEDs can damage health for several decades.  We understand both the benefits and dangers of various wavelengths of light.  LEDs are great for reduction of electricity as they use about 90% less than incandescent bulbs.  In the long term, the blue light that comes from LEDs can damage the retina and other functions of the eye blindness.  With chronic exposure to blue light from LEDS, researchers are predicting an epidemic of eye disease, especially from the large population of baby boomers.  Put me in the category. 

I highly recommended that you watch the thirty-minute interview of Dr. Wunsch by Dr. Mercola.  I had to watch this interview three times before I took in all the information.  There is also a transcript for download on the page if that is easier.  The damage from blue light in combination with age will cause a significant increase in eye disease.  We are exposed to blue light from LEDs on our computers, cell phones, TVs, and now have brought it into our homes through government mandate to reduce our carbon footprint.  I doubt that the government can stop environmental change, but you can count on our eyes being damaged.

I was alarmed after the doctor told me that my left eye would not heal.  The diagnosis is posterior vitreous detachment.  “That floater you see is where the shadow of the damage is projecting onto your retina,” he said.  I questioned the doctor at length about healing and he was adamant that it would not and that it may get worse. He said I should come back in four weeks and that appointment is now ten days away. 

I spend a lot of time on my computer, watching TV, and using my cell phone. I was more than happy to change out my incandescent bulbs for LEDs.  The local power company was very helpful as they sent six free light bulbs to help the effort.  This was two years prior.  When I found the article about LEDS, it began to come home what had happened. The three lights in my home where I read are all on my left side.  I had not only had the exposure to blue light from the multiple electronic sources, now it is from my reading light and general home lighting as well.

The good news is we are not doomed. There is hope for healing and it is very simple.  I now wonder if doctors ever read any new research after they get out of medical school.  I found the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) guidelines for a vitreous detachment and my ophthalmologist had followed them exactly.  This is including how he examined my eye as well as the time for another visit.  What a guy!  I thought that he was very efficient and seemed to really know his stuff. He failed to tell me I was going blind from all the LED exposure and that there is a simple solution—stop using LEDs. That ain’t going to happen.

It turns out, as Dr. Wunsch described the various light effects, that near infrared is very healing.  This occurs by two processes. First there is the stimulation of energy through the deeply penetrating near infrared light of 700 to 1,400 nm. It penetrates as much as 5 cm (2 inches) or more into our body.  This radiant energy accounts for a large portion of our ATP production or our cellular energy molecule. This additional energy promotes healing and gives vigor to biological processes. Second, there is an exclusion zone formed at the boundaries of cell membranes as well as on internal boundaries to bodies inside of the cells from infrared energy absorption. The exclusion zone is significant in charge boundaries and how it helps discrimination of what goes through the cell membrane.  Here is a ten-minute video by Dr. Gerald Pollack of this new understanding–Water, Cells, and Life.

I was amazed at how many stories and advice there are about healing eyes with infrared light. This goes all the way back to the Romans and Greeks.  Here is a recent history from Michael Hamblin of Harvard University on the mechanisms of low level light therapy.  Dr. William Horatio Bates, M.D. (1860-1931) suggested to close the eyes and turn the face directly into the sun for five minutes several times per day.  This was very controversial then and now. It seems safe enough with the eyes closed.  What did I have to lose. The doctor has told me my disease is from old age and it will not heal.

Astonishment filled me as in the first few days the floater had reduced in size by fifty percent.  My visual acuity had significantly improved.  Now, two weeks later, the black floater has reduced by seventy five percent and has turned into a translucent jell-like blob.  I had to change my reading glasses from 2.0 to 1.5 magnification as my eyes have improved. I not only did the sun exposure thing, I also found an infrared heat lamp and used it for about thirty minutes each day for my whole body.  It is unbelievable about how much better I feel. The next visit to my ophthalmologist should be interesting–not that I would challenge a doctor. . .

The other things I did were change all my LED lights that I use for reading back to incandescent. At the advice of Dr. Mercola, I purchased a pair of blue-blocker reading glasses ($15 Amazon) in my reading power and they work great. I use them for watching TV as well as when I am using my computer.  When will they ever learn. . . What about the children?

The Necessity of Sunshine

Has the medical profession been wrong in frightening us from the sun for fifty years? The formation of vitamin D3 is critical to health.  The fear of the sun may have reduced some skin cancers, but created the opportunity for many autoimmune diseases, for reduced immunity, and for chronic disease. The sun is necessary for health because of photo-reactive biological processes.

sun-fearThere have been many discussions about whether vitamin D is as effective as a supplement as it is from the sun.  I have now concluded that vitamin D supplementation is not as effective as forming vitamin D in the skin from the sun.  There are several reasons for this conclusion: the formation of vitamin D3 sulfate, the formation of cholesterol sulfate, and the formation of structured water exclusion zone (EZ) at the cell membranes.  We are just at the beginning of understanding the science involved in these processes.  During the healing of my cartilage, the most significant healing occurred when I was spending at least twenty minutes in the midday summer sun. The following explanations are complex and may be confusing.  If you really want to understand, then you will need to take time to read the links and find other resources. 

Sulfur chemistry in human physiology has basically been ignored as there is an abundance of sulfur in the body.  We typically measure the three critical negative ions in blood chemistry: Chloride, Phosphorus, and Carbonate.  However, we do not measure the amount of sulfate in the blood.  There are several sulfate/sulfur molecules that should be measured as markers for health.  The major one is cholesterol sulfate with a ratio of total cholesterol to cholesterol sulfate being very critical.  It is odd that we don’t measure sulfur as it is the third most abundant mineral based on body weight.  The sulfur- related cycles, in their many functions in human physiology, need to be better explored as they are critical to human health.

GAGs or Glycosaminoglycans are healing compounds that are made in Golgi bodies inside of cells. Hyaluronan is the only GAG that is not sulfated.  Hyaluronan is used by the body as the lubricant for joints and other soft tissue functions. Hyaluronic acid injections into joints is now commonly used for relief of joint pain (I highly suggest this type of injection instead of steroids as steroids will cause cartilage erosion). Not mentioned in GAGs Wiki article linked above are cerebrosides and cerebroside sulfate which are necessary for the formation of the myelin sheath around neurons and for reduced skin permeability. The lack of sulfur compounds has been implicated in the current problem with Autism (link here to paper-pdf) and perhaps other brain diseases.

Sulfate molecules are water and lipid soluble.  This allows for detoxification of the body as sulfated esters attach to waste molecules and are eliminated by the kidneys.  Reduced sulfur is one of the problems with using acetaminophen, as sulfate is required to remove this toxin used as an analgesic.   Acetaminophen is one of the leading causes of liver failure because it is used in so many different pain meds and cold remedies. Sulfur deficiency has only caused a larger problem with this drug.

We know that vitamin D sulfate and cholesterol sulfate are needed in all human cells.  The only researcher I know that is currently discussing this issue is Stephanie Seneff.  She is a researcher at MIT and a sulfur expert.  You can find many of her articles here.  You can also find many interviews with Dr. Mercola at Mercola.com.  Dr. Seneff suggest that we make both vitamin D3 sulfate and cholesterol sulfate at the same time in the skin when it is exposed to the sun.  Of course, exposure to the sun without adequate sulfate can leave you without the formation of UV derived sulfate compounds.  She also suggests that when supplementing with large amounts of vitamin D, you may be stopping your production of cholesterol.  Dr. Seneff is emphatic about getting vitamin D from the sun. Dr. Mercola has commented that he does not supplement but uses the sun and UV/vitamin D lamps. He promotes the Sperti brand as it is the only FDA approved UV/vitamin D lamps.

There are a couple of ways to get an adequate amount of sulfur.  First, you could move to a region in the world where the soil is high in sulfur like Japan, Greece, or Iceland.   These countries have low heart disease rates.  The reason the soil is high is sulfur and magnesium is because of volcanism.  Given that you like where you live, you can supplement with MSM or methyl sulfonyl methane.  There are many foods that contain MSM.  With food, the best bet is to get the required sulfur from high sulfur plants like cabbage, broccoli, and other cruciferous vegetables and from alliums like onions, garlic, and leeks.  Three servings a day of combination of these vegetables may be adequate.  Consider the onion as it concentrates sulfur from its environment.  The burning in the eyes when peeling onions is caused by aromatic sulfur compounds that form sulfuric acid in the eyes—ouch.  Another way to get sulfur is to soak in an Epsom salts bath three times a week for about twenty minutes.  You not only get the required sulfur in the skin, but also magnesium.  If you think about all the many healing remedies throughout the ages, many of them are about soaking in mineral water or applying mineral mud that is high in sulfur and magnesium.

Now that you are replete in sulfur, you need to go into the sun.  As we have said earlier, vitamin D3 sulfate and cholesterol sulfate are made at the same time in the skin with adequate UV exposure and adequate cholesterol.  I think that Dr. Seneff may be over empathizing the need for cholesterol.  If you are on a statin drug, then you are taking your own life into your hands.  Reduced cholesterol is not a healthy thing if it gets too low.  About half of men over 65 are on a statin drug—modern “sick-care” at its best.  The other important thing to know is that vitamin D is responsible for the sodium-sulfur cotransport through the body’s dermal layers.

The other recent discovery is a fourth phase of water.  We were taught in school that water has three phases: liquid, solid, and vapor.  Dr. Gerald Pollack at the University of Washington has spent years in defining a fourth phase of water as structured water or H3O2. We should have been aware of this structured phase because of the crystalline structure of snowflakes.   This means there are five phases to water: liquid, structured liquid, solid, structured solid, and vapor. The understanding of this phenomenon is best received from Dr. Pollack’s TEDx speech on You Tube.  The exclusion zone or EZ that is formed at the cell membrane acts as part of the gate at the membrane to allow the correct molecules into cells.  This is done by the viscosity difference and the charge difference in the EZ.

I know this is all very complicated to understand.  Your take away is that vitamin D is best made in the sun because you make vitamin D3 sulfate and vitamin D3.  Supplementation of vitamin D3 works for most functions, but all diseases don’t respond. Vitamin D3 supplements are made from either fish oil or sheep lanolin. I suspect that some vitamin D3 products are higher in vitamin D3 sulfate, that is the vitamin D that is made from sheep lanolin.  It would seem logical that there would be some cholesterol sulfate in the lanolin.  Cholesterol is very important to health as well as cholesterol sulfate made when the skin is exposed to sun.  There seems to be another pathway for making cholesterol sulfate on the surface of red blood cells, but I don’t understand this yet.  In any case, it is necessary to have adequate sulfur.  The medical profession has ignored this vital mineral.

Stay off statin drugs, get adequate sulfur, and go into the sun with safe exposure.  Keep a normal serum vitamin D level of 50 to 70 ng/ml within the medical normal for serum vitamin D or 25(OH)D of 30 to 100 ng/ml.  –Pandemic Survivor

Historic Breakthrough in Health – Nano Policosanol

“In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.” – Galileo Galilei

Nature will typically provide at least two pathways or redundancy for anything that is critical to the survival of life. Consider that we have two arms, two kidneys, two eyes, two lungs, etc. If you want to get more technical consider there are two substances to allow homocysteine to go to methionine [trimethylglycine (TMG or Betaine) or the combination of folate with vitamin B12] for the methylation cycle for the expression of genes. The discovery is a substance that works along some of the pathways of vitamin D and enhances the action of nutrients and more.

The remarkable thing about the action of this form of policosanol, as described in the patent, is that it does not drive up serum calcium. This has always been the issue with simply giving the hormone form of vitamin D to patients. Imagine anything that can work on physiological systems of the body without side effects. This natural substance has been consumed forever. Could this be the gift for an extremely healthy life? Like vitamin D in animals, it is also produced by the sun on plants and in many of our foods. The issue has been the ability of the body to absorb it so that it can get to where it needs to be active.   The new discovery is the effectiveness of a small droplet sized emulsion of policosanol. Policosanol is found as a waxy aliphatic alcohol on the leaves of sugar cane and in the husk of many grains and in other plants as well.   This may be reason that diets like the unprocessed paleo diet are so effective.

In conversations with Dr. P.R. Raghavan, he describes the finding as nature’s way of providing a pathway to health for animals who cannot obtain their vitamin D from the sun. He states that his discovery came from observing rats. The first thing that rats do is to eat grass when experiencing long periods without any exposure to sun. Grass makes the waxy alcohol on its leaves. “Rice-field Rats primarily reside in cultivated areas such as rice paddies and grasslands. It [where they reside] is largely dependent on human rice fields and plantations. Rice field rats shelter in burrows in soil, under rocks, and in logs”. It now makes me wonder when I see a dog eat grass if they are trying to achieve health from policosanol. Animals will do whatever is necessary for survival. Dr. Raghavan has been vigorous in making this understanding.

Consider the elephant with its hard dermal layer. How does it get its vitamin D? Or is its health from eating the policosanol in all the plants that it consumes.   “Asian elephants eat a wide variety of plants including grasses, shrubs, bamboo etc. While more than 100 different species may be eaten, only about 10 to 25 foods are likely to make up more than 8% of the diet. The percentage of grasses versus browse eaten varies seasonally; the nutrient value of grass is greatest early in the wet season, while that of leafy browse is higher in the dry season. Elephants do show choice in feeding: foods eaten do not necessarily match foods available. Crops such as bananas, sugar cane and paddy (rice) are favoured.” The sugar cane and paddy rice are very high in policosanol. The serum concentration of 25(OH)D for elephants is low compared to what is considered healthy for animals at an average of 16 ng/ml.

From Dr. Raghavan’s Into to Metadichol: “In the late 1880’s Dutch physician, Christiaan Eijkman was sent to the East Indies(now Indonesia to investigate why beriberi was so widespread in the region. Eijkman observed that hens in his Jakarta laboratory suffered symptons of nerve disease (polyneuritis) that were strikingly similar to those for beriberi – including muscle weakness, nerve degeneration, and paralysis. He then began a series of experiments to try to find a culprit organism, which he assumed was the cause.

He showed that the hens contracted the beriberi like polyneuritis soon after their feed was changed to polished rice – that is, rice whose outer husk had been removed. He also proved that by adding rice bran (the parts removed in polishing) to the hens’ food, the disease could be cured. The outer Husk contains Metadichol (policosanol).” We should clarify here that beriberi is commonly thought to be caused by vitamin B1 (Thiamine) deficiency, but Dr. Raghavan believes that the lack of policosanol was also a cause.

Emulsions are liquid colloids of droplets that are typically less than one micron in size. If you think about homogenized milk, it has fat droplets that range from 300nm to 500nm (0.3 microns to 0.5 microns). There are many small sized droplet emulsions that we normally use. Think about sugar in water, soap in water, or a supplement like vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin K, etc. in water. The droplet size of the patented emulsion of policosanol, Metadichol®, is about 50nm in size.   This allows for easy absorption through the gut wall or through dermal layers if used topically.

Think about the many pathways that are described by Anthony W. Norman for health in his paper:
The History of the Discovery of Vitamin D and Its Daughter Steroid Hormone
Norman A.W. Ann Nutr Metab 2012;61:199–206 (DOI:10.1159/000343104)
It is truly astonishing the possibilities for health through vitamin D pathways of the vitamin D receptor. Consider this diagram derived from this paper for immune response:

Story02

Let’s take mast cells as an example in an autoimmune response. The mast cells become over active causing significant inflammation. The Metadichol®, name given in the patent, binds to the mast cell VDR and calms it down. As a result, the inflammation that is being caused disappears. Dr. Raghavan says, “Based on our invitro and invivo data Metadichol ® behaves as an agonist for one receptor and an antagonist or neutral antagonist or inverse agonist for another receptor.” The many cells that are involved in an immune reaction and other physiologies with the VDR makes the possibilities for health unlimited.

Dr. Raghavan likes to describe the VDR super family of nuclear receptors and the action of Metadichol® as follows: “A simplified way of looking at it is that the Vitamin D receptor (VDR) present in chromosome 12 in each and every cell is the conductor of an orchestra and he/she, is not relaying to the orchestra the proper cues. This will impact the performance of other members of the orchestra. Metadichol by acting on VDR restores the conductor to peak performance and ensures that both the conductor and the orchestra will perform at their peak potential (read; disease free).”

We have been scared from the sun for the last fifty years. It is time to take advantage of the nature’s gift from the sun, vitamin D in animals and policosanol in plants. This is truly a wonderful and historic discovery in nutritional health. I believe that it is a discovery worthy of the Nobel Prize! – Pandemic Survivor

The Sun, Infectious Disease, or What Happens in the Dark

Gen: 1:2 NIV, “Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep…”

We have been scared out of the sun for the last fifty years. It has been constantly screamed at us about the danger of sun exposure. We have slathered huge amounts of sunscreen on our bodies when we do go into the sun. Also, with the invention of TV and computers, we have spent significantly more time inside than out during the recent decades. This has presented the question, “Have we created an opportunity for a major pandemic because of the reduction of vitamin D from low sun exposure?”

I thought a unique way of determining the answer to this question is to look at past pandemics. I also decided to look at just bubonic plague outbreaks as this is well documented over the last fifteen hundred years. There have been three major outbreaks.

First Outbreak

The first outbreak of bubonic plague began in Europe, Constantinople, in approximately 542. There was a significant event just prior that cause the solar incidence to be significantly reduced. This event occurred in approximately 536. The reduced sun and resulting cold and crop failures went on for many years. Michael the Syrian, who wrote “the sun became dark and its darkness lasted for one and a half years… Each day it shone for about four hours and still this light was only a feeble shadow…the fruits did not ripen and the wine tasted like sour grapes.”

Robert A. Dull of the University of Texas believes that this reduce solar incidence occurred because of a volcanic eruption in El Salvador. The volcano is named Llopango and its caldera forms Lake Llopango that is 11 x 17 km near the city of San Salvador. There is enough scientific evidence that Dull is certain the ash cloud from this eruption was the cause.

It is interesting to note that the disease was carried by rats, a nocturnal animal. It is easy to understand that nocturnal animals would have a much lower opportunity to receive vitamin D from any source. It is estimated that the plague killed approximately 50 million people in the Roman Empire alone.

Second Outbreak – The Black Death

This outbreak was believed to have begun in Mongolia in the earlier 1330’s. It then spread to Europe as merchant ships arrived from the Crimea in approximately 1347. It is reported that approximately a third of the population was killed in Europe. In looking for volcanic activity, I found that Mount Tarawera (New Zealand) erupted around AD 1315. The ash thrown from this event may have dropped temperatures around the globe and precipitated the Great Famine of 1315–1317 in Europe. This was also the start of the Little Ice Age. Again, we find significant reduction in solar incidence. Also, I would imagine people started to wear more clothing because of the cold. It is interesting to note that the world’s population increased in areas other than Europe.

Third Outbreak

The third outbreak started again in Eastern Asia in approximately 1855. It was mostly localized. It then spread to the rest of China and India in the 1890’s where approximately 12 million people died. I found volcanic activity from another major eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886 and Krakatoa in 1883(Sunda Arc). Again the eruptions occurred just a few years before a major outbreak.

Are we a population of sun deficient, vitamin D deficient people waiting for another major pandemic to occur? This is a very unnerving scenario. We can only hope that the current outbreak of Ebola is localized to West Africa. Ebola is a disease that is believed to have originated with bats, a nocturnal animal. Have we discovered enough science to arrest the disease? With this concern, the incidence of sun cancer should be the least of your worries. Responsibly spend time in the sun. Don’t let your skin burn, but stay long enough to build your vitamin D3 stores. If you live in northern latitudes or stay inside, then supplement. It is not as good as the sun, but better than no vitamin D3. – Pandemic Survivor

The Miracle of the Sun

You are a child again and it is the night before that long awaited event. It’s the evening before the little league play off game. You dream of that power shot you plan to hit over the right field fence. Perhaps it is the evening before your birthday or Christmas eve. You know that the doll you have been longing for is wrapped and waiting. In bed, you toss and turn in excitement and anticipation. You know what is about to happen is going to be so joyful and loving to you and everyone you know. I did not think this type of excitement can happen to an old man. It has happened to me in the last several weeks.

It is interesting to think of the things that are required for life. A life with abundant good health that is happy and joyful. What are those things that you need ? Without air, you would die in a few minutes. Without water, you would die in a few days. Without food maybe you could make it for a couple of weeks. How long would you make it without the sun? Without the sun you would have no food and possibly not enough heat to survive. And could you survive without love? Think of the trial in the 1930’s when they tried to feed babies without touching them. The trial was ended because the babies started to die. Yes air, water, food, sun, and love are needed for an abundant life.

For at least the last fifty years, our medical professionals have been scaring us from the sun. We have even told people, after Dr. Cook’s proclaimation that vitamin D would cause birth defects in the 1960’s, to limit any source of vitamin D. (Note: Dr. Cook was friends of the Kennedys and had great political and public attention.) Chronic disease has flourished in America as we have limited our exposure to sun. Now research on vitamin D has shown at least fifty health issues that have been proven by clinical trials to be caused by deficiency in this sun driven vitamin. Is that why all the people that I know over ninety enjoy spending time in the sun and make it a habit?

My excitement is over a second molecule that appears to work along the vitamin D pathways in the body. The two patents that I have been shown, each make ten unique medical claims that are beyond what we would expect of vitamin D. And yet this natural substance is completely safe as it has been consumed for years. The unique novelty of the formulation is in a form that allows the policosanol to enter the cell where our biological life happens. Yes that’s right, just policosanol, an extract primarily of the sun splashed portions of sugar cane and other sun washed plants.

I picked one of the disease claims and decided compare how the unique formulation worked in a similar way as vitamin D. The claim in the patent is that the formulation of policosonal is an inverse agonist for the vitamin D receptor.   Hunh? I had heard of agonist and antagonist, but not an inverse agonist. It is apparent to me, that this unique condition has not been defined in a way that a novice could understand. Here is an explanation at Wiki and at Pharmacology Corner

The Metadichol®, a name given the formulation in the patent, puts the vitamin D receptor in a state of action. It most likely is optimizing the performance of vitamin D to allow life. This is where the good stuff begins that causes you to really get excited. The sun created vitamin D has to go through several chemical/biological conversions to get to an active state that causes receptor action. This does not seem to be the case with Metadichol®. Once the policosanol is inside the cell, the receptors take action. Let’s take one of the claims to see if we can show the action of the sun over the years.

MRSA has become a true blight on mankind. The claim is that the Metadichol® healed MRSA. There are thousands of deaths in the US each year from this disease. Its sister, sepsis, claims hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. We know that vitamin D works well as an effective fighter of viruses, but to also treat bacterial infections is amazement. Of course this works in part through the production of a pathogen killer, cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide. The issue has always been, since Niels Finson was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903 for healing lupus vulgaris with UV light, the side effect of toxicity. The effective treatment of using UV irradiation of serious infections has been phased out. Comments at the Vitamin D Council on sepsis and a history of treating infections with UV irradiation from The Guyer Institute. This history of treating infections is a very important read. Through the use of antibiotics, we have regressed over the last 110 years since the Niels Finson discovery of what nature has given us with the sun.

So what could happen at high levels of vitamin D from UV light without the toxicity – the action of vitamin D without having to worry about your serum calcium getting too high? What if you could keep your vitamin D really active without having to worry about toxicity? We suspect that it would be very effective in treating disease. It appears a unique symphony of action occurs when Metadichol® is introduced.  Here, the sun has provided us with two routes of health, vitamin D and a plant derivative, policosanol. A safe nutraceutical that has been consumed since ancient times. Who is this man that came up with a formulation to allow policosanol to be so effective? – Dr. P.R. Raghavan.

As with all great leaps in science, it seems that one person has the vision and makes the jump in paradigm. It is never our huge institutions who make this leap. Institutions develop tunnel vision through the weighing down of institutional armor. Armor allows only a narrow view of life through a very small opening. In conversation with Dr. Raghavan, he believes that nature always gives us robustness and duplication in critical needs of life. For example, he states that we have two eyes, two kidneys, and two lungs. There are many examples in biology that have a second pathway, which depends on what our environment has given us. Dr. Raghavan states that his goal is to give the world a cost effective way to health for everyone.

Dr. Raghavan has licensed marketing companies in India, Asia, and soon the Middle East. This represents about sixty percent of the world’s population. He is presently looking for marketing companies for the rest of the world. His plan is to provide no one with an exclusive. Here is a link to the company licensed in Thailand, Polilex and a link to a store front page that is loaded with information.  

It is that evening before the big event. Life with a method of healing disease that is extraordinary. No longer do you have to cry at the loss of someone close because a serious disease has disrupted life. Only love, joy, and peace fill you. I am so excited – Pandemic Survivor.
