Are vitamins helpful?
According to a report on Adelaide Channel 9, vitamins do nothing, are a waste of money, and some herbal supplements cause liver damage. As usual, Channel 9 neglected to get the real story, did not read the thousands of studies proving the benefits of vitamins, or allow the alternative health industry to respond. Just one example: Vitamin D3 at a healthy dose of 5000 IU (5 times the normal dose) can reduce risk of cancer between 50% and 90% and high-dose vitamin C can also help significantly. If a drug company developed a drug to perform as well, they would charge a fortune and want a Nobel Prize for inventing it!
LeanMachine has not had a cold or flu or even a headache since adopting a Paleo-style diet and a host of vitamin and mineral supplements in the year 2010 at age 63. Now at age 73, LeanMachine is healthier, stronger with more energy than at any time in his life, allergies gone and never gets sick!
Back to Channel 9 and liver damage - they neglected to mention that most people on the liver transplant waiting list are there because of Paracetamol overdose, and many cancer patients suffer because of Paracetamol, causing destruction of natural L-Glutathione (the "Master Antioxidant"), our main in-built defense mechanism against cancer and most other diseases. Obviously another fake story by Big Pharma to retain their profits and keep people sick, and shame on Channel 9 to be a part of this!
Almost every one of our 60 to 100 trillion body cells has Vitamin D3 receptors, and D3 is essential for mineral absorption, bone building, immunity and disease prevention.

Sepsis by LeanMachine

Younger readers probably have never heard of Patty Duke, but older readers will have fond memories of her as a teenager on TV's "Patty Duke Show".
Patty contracted sepsis after having a ruptured intestine, and died soon afterward.
Early treatment is essential for Sepsis, because as soon as it progresses, it develops faster, with toxins getting into the blood, causing death.
Sepsis is not a well-known condition, but it is caused by a rampant infection and kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. In Patty's case, it was started by an abdominal infection, but can be brought on by pneumonia, a kidney infection, or many other infections.

Surviving Sepsis

We MUST recognise this specific combination of early symptoms, which can be broken down by an acronym spelling "sepsis":
  • S – Shivering, fever, or feeling very cold
  • E – Extreme pain or general discomfort
  • P – Pale or discolored skin
  • S – Sleepy, difficult to rouse, confused
  • I – "I feel like I might die"
  • S – Shortness of breath
If anyone has this combination, get to hospital immediately, because if you have sepsis, you have a greater chance of death than if you were having a heart attack or a stroke.

Treatment for Sepsis

After diagnosis, the doctor will first treat the underlying infection, normally by feeding antibiotics intravenously. LeanMachine normally does not recommend antibiotics as they destroy healthy gut bacteria, but this is one of a small number of life-saving conditions. The sooner the patient receives antibiotics, the higher the chance of survival.

Risk Factors

People with higher risk include:
  • Those with compromised immune systems
  • Babies and young children
  • The elderly
  • Those with cancer, diabetes or other serious or chronic illnesses
  • Those with severe wounds or burns
However, anyone can get sepsis, so we must always be aware of the symptoms. Always use the word "sepsis" at the hospital to ensure they act fast and do not put you on a waiting list. Your life may depend on it!

Avoiding Sepsis

Build the immune system!
If we have a strong immune system, we will overcome the infection before it starts progressing out of control.
Look for my upcoming article "How to build a strong Immune System" coming soon.
In the meantime, avoid processed food, eat only fresh, natural food, healthy fats like avocados or coconut oil, and take Vitamin D3 and Selenium as the two most important supplements.
Back this up with yogurt and/or other fermented food to help build healthy gut bacteria, and/or take a probiotic such as Acidophilus.
