Metadichol and Glucose Transport

Once again Dr. P. R. Raghavan has demonstrated how Metadichol works to improve health. In a recent paper, published in the Journal of Stem Cell Research & Therapy, Metadichol is shown to affect the glucose transporter 4 (Glut4 – found primarily on muscle cells) and associated receptor substrates. This explains the control of glucose in patients treated with Metadichol in many case studies.  “Umbilical Cord Treatment with Metadichol, IRS and Glut4 Expressions and Implications for Diabetes” Link to Paper as PDF: IRS-GLUT4-PAPER

It is important to understand that this is a new paradigm for treatment of disease. Typically, in medical treatment research, it has been “one drug–one target.” In the above paper, it is shown how a new understanding of treatment is obtain with “one drug–multiple targets.”  When gene expression as well as nuclear receptors are brought into proper communication, amazing things happen.

Glucose transporters have been shown to increase the transfer of sugars through cell membranes in several ways. Of course, insulation regulation has always been the obvious control of sugar uptake by cells. It is also well known that exercise significantly increases the action of Glut4 which is the transporter for muscle cells. In addition, thyroid hormones play an important role in glucose transporters (which means that iodine and selenium are important). Now for the first time, the regulation of glucose transporters is shown to be affected by a food substance.

Metadichol is a nano-emulsion of waxy aliphatic alcohols, policosanols. The difference of Metadichol and other policosanol supplements is the small particle formulation. Policosanols can be found in many plants. Modern processing of foods has significantly changed the way our bodies take up policosanols. The most concentrated areas of policosanol are on the surface of leaves and husk of seeds and grains.

This is exciting news for diabetics who may be able to control their blood sugar with a substance that does not have side effects, Metadichol.

Diabetes Solution – Metadichol

Sym DiabeticA novel approach to solving the issues of diabetes shows Metadichol to be a winner.  Dr. PR Raghavan had originally published a paper for a case study for type 1 diabetes, Case Report of Type 1 Diabetes. Journal of the Science of Healing Outcomes: 2010; Vol 2(8/9):24. After five years and ending treatment the patient is still producing insulin.

  He is now to publish in the Science of Healing Outcomes in July a case report for type 2 diabetes.  Metadichol and Type 2 Diabetes Case Report (Metadichol Type2 Diabetes). From the introduction: “Globally, it is estimated that 366 million people had diabetes in 2011 (5). The number of people with type 2 diabetes is rapidly increasing in every country and in some low to middle income countries, up to 80% of people have diabetes.”  This disease ravishes the body and ultimately causes death from organ failure.  It is a disease of poor eating habits: “Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disease that can be prevented through lifestyle modification, diet control, and control of overweight and obesity. Education of the populace is still the key to control this emerging epidemic.”

Figure 8The results from the case study are amazing as the person was on no other meds, having chosen to use only Metadichol.  The figure 8 graph from the study shows a clear reduction in glucose as tested during various times throughout the day. The patient’s HbA1C was reduced from 9.8 at baseline to 6.2 at day 84.

Is Metadichol going to work for diabetics?  This is yet to be determined. This study of one person may have had significant changes in glucose because the person changed their eating and exercise habits.  Eating habits are not reported and do have a significant impact on type 2 diabetes.  However, the case study that was first reported for type 1 warrants a significant clinical trial to determine the efficacy for Metadichol for treating diabetes. Since policosanol (the primary component of Metadichol) is a food substance, this trial could be safely carried out on large populations with people that are willing to log their eating habits during the trial.

As reported in other articles on Metadichol, Dr. Raghavan believes that the effectiveness is from how nano-policosanol acts on the vitamin D receptor (VDR).  It appears to act as both an agonist and an inverse agonist which is very unusual.  In addition, Metadichol acts on many genes and other nuclear receptors as reported by Dr. Raghavan.  Will the medical community embrace a food substance for treating disease—all, yet to be determined?  – Pandemic Survivor

Nano Policosanol Study Shows Increased Vitamin D

Recently a clinical trial was started with 32 patients with many medical issues. P. R. Raghavan, Ph.D. has provided me with some of the initial results of the trail after thirty days.  There are sixty markers for health being used in the study.  The patients are being given 5 mg of per day of Metadichol (nano policosanol) and the markers being tested periodically.

The very interesting thing is that the vitamin D levels (25(OH)D) of the patients have improved by 38.2%.  The baseline for the trial was an average of 12.75 ng/ml.  After thirty days, the average of the group increased to 17.77 ng/ml.  The following graph shows the results of 31 patients with one of the patients left out as there was no change in vitamin D. This gives the result of an increase for 31 patients at 39.4%.  There was no supplementation of vitamin D or increased exposure to sunshine to account for this increase.


In Dr. Raghavan’s findings for Metadichol, he has shown through nuclear receptor studies that Metadichol can act as an agonist, antagonist, and as an inverse agonist for the vitamin D receptor.  In conversations with Dr. Raghavan, he believes that Metadichol acts in place of vitamin D or as a helper to make the action of vitamin D more effective.  He states that the vitamin D receptor is like the conductor of an orchestra to allow other nuclear receptors to properly react for health. I asked him how the nano policosanol knows how to control the receptors.  He states that he believes it is through the communication of the genes in food with the human genome. 

The details of the complexity of nano policosanol interaction with the human genome is yet to be completely determined.  However, many thousands have taken Metadichol as a supplement in Asia for over a year with only positive results of health being reported.  Policosanol is the waxy aliphatic alcohol that is found on the sun exposed portion of many plants.  The Cubans have found in studies that policosanol is very effective in reducing total cholesterol and triglycerides and increasing HDL, the more desirable form of cholesterol for health.  In addition, Dr. Raghavan has shown that Metadichol affects many of the markers for health which include blood sugar and insulin response.  We will know more when the trial is completed.  The Chinese have allowed the product to be marketed as boosting the immune system. It is particularly effective for wound healing and Dr. Raghavan also plans to show how Metadichol affects metabolic age. 

Metadichol in Southeast Asia

A video of people using Metadichol as brand name Polilex has been posted to you tube by Polilex. This is a very remarkable video. Typically what you see in videos is young people talking about how wonderful things are. In this video, it is mostly old people that are suffering from an array of chronic diseases.

It is amazing to think that something as simple as an emulsion of the waxy substance found on most plants leaves can have such effects. As we move forward in our understanding of nutrients from food, I believe there will be amazing results. How modern foods are processed is of extreme importance to our health.

The video is high quality but the English subtitles are sometimes hard to read.

New Nutraceutical, Metadichol® – Breathtaking Results!

“One good nutraceutical can wipe out the drugs.” Dr. Stephen De Felice

As a regular reader, you have seen several post of the new form of policosanol as a small droplet emulsion, brand name, Metadichol®. (Historic Breakthrough in Health – A Natural Alternative to Vitamin D) This natural substance appears to present a new model for how healing should occur in the body. As a natural substance formed on sun splashed portions of plants, it appears to act in the body very similar to vitamin D. This is a claim in the one of the many patents covering Metadichol®. As you know, you cannot patent a natural substance; however, the novelty is the small droplet that easily absorbs into the body and blood stream where it can become active in cells.

Some of the claims in the patent for healing are as follows: malaria, acne, eczema, ganglion, lipoma, MRSA, wound healing, fungal infections, psoriasis, hair growth, wrinkles, kidney disease, regulates glucose, insulin resistance, Diabetes type 2, Cholesterol, improved lipid profiles, hypertension, kidney disease, heart disease, reduced protein oxidation or oxidative stress, TNF a – significant immune system function, and increases serum vitamin C.

This product has only been on the market since the last part of 2014 in Southeast Asia. The reports coming from that area are amazing in the variety and healing of many diseases. The amazing thing has been no side effects. Of course, since it can be found of most foods, there should be no side effects. This appears to fall into the first rule of medicine, do no harm. When I was first approach by the discoverer, I thought – yeah, yeah another nut found a way to make money. Now after two months, I am truly amazed at the results from my own experience.

My own experience was first the amazement that the pain from my wife’s shingles went away in just a couple of days. It is interesting to note that her primary care physician had identified the rash as shingles along the C3-C4 dermatome. My wife has experienced shingles before that went on for over six months. After four weeks, there was still some redness and my wife went to see a dermatologist who is a friend of the family (I may have instigated this visit because of my prior communication with the dermatologist about Metadichol®). The dermatologist said that it was not shingles, primarily because it had gone away so fast and the apparent appearance of the remaining rash. She described it as a rash of unknown origin. I suspect this type of healing is unfamiliar to the dermatologist.

As for myself, I had a hemorrhoid that shrank overnight after an application of Metadichol®. Also, I treated a wound that I had received from cutting wood. It healed very quickly without a scab formation which I found extremely interesting. After about four weeks of using Metadichol®, there were red formations on my arm and leg. They appeared to be like large pimples or a formation of a colony of bacteria that looked similar to the appearance of MRSA that I had five years ago. After a few days of treatment with the Metadichol®, the redness disappeared. I now wonder if these areas were not colonies of pathogens trying to escape from the action of the Metadichol®. Also, the lipomas are shrinking on our 13 year old dog. We simply spray a couple of sprays on her food every day. We tried to treat a lick granuloma on the dog’s leg. This appeared to work well for a couple of weeks, but the dog started to lick again and the inflammation still exists. We have not tried to increase the dose for the dog. Also intermittent treatment may be an issue as well.

The mechanisms for how the substance works is not truly understood. Dr. Raghavan, the discoverer believes that there is some form of communication that appears to give intelligence to the action of Metadichol®. He has tried the formulation with synthetic components of policosanol and it does not work. He believes that it may be plant and microbial DNA that gets extracted along with the policosanol. It would be interesting if the Metadichol® is also renewing the health of our microbiome and homeostasis is reached in the body through this symbiotic relationship. The consideration of how it may possibly work because of DNA that comes over is daunting when considering the amounts of GMO foods that we are now consuming.

There are to be publications about Metadichol® that will appear over the next several months. This will include information on how our genome reacts and treatment of some very serious diseases. It will be interesting the response of the medical and research communities. – Pandemic Survivor

Higher Vitamin D Intake Drastically Reduces Disease

A new study of serum levels of vitamin D shows that 4000 to 8000 IU per day are required to keep your serum level in a range that will reduce the incidence of disease. This includes cancer, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.  Dr. Cedric Garland says that the incidence of many diseases could be reduced by half.

Here is the news article in Business Week: “Higher Vitamin D Level Could Cut Cancer Risk”

As I have described in many post, the amount of vitamin D required is different for each individual.  The only way to know that you are getting enough is to have your serum 25(OH)D level tested.  Serum levels should be maintained above 40 ng/ml, and for best results the level should be maintained between 60 to 80 ng/ml year round.  You should only supplement with Vitamin D3.

For a better understanding of the science, here is the journal article that was published in Anticancer Research, International Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment, made available in its entirety by Grass Roots Health.

Vitamin D Supplement Doses and Serum 25-Hydroxyvitamin D in the Range Associated with Cancer Prevention

CEDRIC F. GARLAND, CHRISTINE B. FRENCH, , LEO L. BAGGERLY, and ROBERT P. HEANEY (here is the url in case you cannot go there from the above link

“This paper provides a long awaited insight into a dose-response relationship between orally administered vitamin D3 and the resulting levels of serum 25(OH)D in over 3600 citizens. The results will allow new definition of high vitamin D dose safety and reduce concerns about toxicity. This is a landmark contribution in the vitamin D nutrition field!”

Millions Needlessly Die of Vitamin D3 Deficiency

Well, in my satire on the presidential declaration of a national emergency it seems that I got my numbers wrong about the amount of death from vitamin D deficiency.   I had used 400,000 deaths that is an extrapolation used in William Grants paper on what would happen if everyone in the US were to take 2000 IU of D3 per day.  “Reducing the Burden of Disease Through Adequate Intake of Vitamin D3.” Since Dr. Grant wrote this paper that used data from 2001 new research has come to light.

I received an email today from the John Cannell, Vitamin D Council, that said that William Faloon, Co-Founded of Life Extension Foundation, had written a new article with a retraction of his data from the letter of 2007. His new numbers that appeared in the January, 2009 issue of Life Extension Magazine shows that there could be well over a million deaths in the US every year from vitamin D deficiency.

So what are we to believe?  I always like to check my data from an independent source.  If we consider that vitamin D has the possibility of reducing all chronic disease by 40 percent what would that mean for America?  If you will recall my post on Health Care Reform Heal the People we found that the death rate in Mexico is 4.8 per 1000 per year and in the US the death rate is 8.4 per 1000 per year,  or 43% less deaths per year in Mexico.  CIA Fact Sheets: So you ask what the disparity of data is.  Do they have a better health care system?  The answer of course is that they are a sun-splashed country in the lower latitudes which means they most likely have higher vitamin D levels than the US.  And not only that,  but much of the population lives above 5000 ft which is above much of the atmospheric moisture and pollutions and this allows a higher incidence of UVB radiation to make vitamin D.  Also their winters are not as cold so more of the human body is exposed because they simply wear fewer clothes.

The death rate in the US of 8.4 minus the death rate of 4.8 is 3.6 per 1000 population per year.  If we take that most of this is from the difference in vitamin D levels then the US could reduce death by 3.6 times 307,000 thousand (307 million US population) per year.  This works out to 1,150,000 people per year.  If we say that there are more deaths because we have more cars and higher incidence of toxins because we are (were) a more industrialized nation, we would still have well over a million less deaths from vitamin D3 deficiency every year.  This would decimate the medical and medical insurance industries to say nothing of big pharma and over-the-counter goods sold at retail as remedies for whatever.  If the deaths are reduced by this much imagine how much less suffering and pain there would be from disease.

This is one heck of a survivor story as Mexico has significantly less death and suffering than the US because of vitamin D3.  I know the above may not be very scientific but it makes a lot of just plain common sense.  Imagine the millions of needless deaths in other countries because of this dread deficiency in a world with a population 6.7 billion people with a large portion living at the higher latitudes.
