Exercise may not be key to controlling weight  according to new research in Peer J.  Young adults from the United States and four other countries were studied by researchers who found that neight physical activity nor sedentary lifestyle were associated with weight gain. Researchers said that although exercis has many health benefits people who are physically active tend to be healthier but although this activity burns calories it also increases appetite, and people may compensate by eating more, or by being less active the rest of the day.

In the study participants in the 5 countries wore tracking devices called accelerometers on their waists for a week to measure their energy expenditure and step count. Researchers also measure their weight, height, and body fat. After the initial exam participants returned one and two years later. Initially only 44 percent of American men and 20 percent of American women met the U.S. Surgeon General physical activity guidelines that recommended at least two and a half hours of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise such as brisk walking weekly.

Results showed total weight gain was greater among those who met the physical activity guidelines. In America, men who met the guidelines gained a half pound per year, whereas American men who did not meet the guidelines lost 0.6 pounds. Researchers also found no relationship between sedentary lifestyle initially and subsequent weight gain or weight loss. The only significant factors for weight gain were weight at the initial visit, age and gender.

Synthetic Marijuana Dangerous Says Researchers.

A new study published in Trends in Pharmacological Sciences concluded that synthetic marijuana differs from chemically from marijuana and have dangerous side effects that include seizures, psychosis, dependence, and death, and are not safe substitutes even though they are marketed as safe, legal alternatives that cannot be detected by standard drug testing. Researchers discovered earlier that the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana, ?9-THC, activates two receptors, CB1 found in high amounts in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2, found mainly in the immune system. Researchers studying these receptors identified other naturally occurring chemicals and developed synthetic cannabinoids (SCB) compounds that also bind to them; collectively, these compounds are known as cannabinoids that activate the CB! and CB2 receptors. However, SCB’s and other cannabinoids are otherwise chemically different from marijuana. These SCB’s are now marketed and sold as synthetic marijuana under names such as K2 and Spice and have lead to increase emergency room visits with bizarre symptoms that did not correspond to symptoms seen with marijuana use.

Symptoms seen include both acute and long range effects including seizures and convulsions, kidney injury, cardio-toxicity, strokes, anxiety, psychosis in susceptible people, dependence, and withdrawal symptoms. Twenty deaths were also linked to using SCB. The researchers cautioned against dismissing the therapeutic value of cannabinoids and say results seem are from synthetic marijuana and they are not safe.

A recent review of research published in the American Journal of Physiology–Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, suggested that changes in the microorganisms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract may be the cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This condition is common in up to 20 percent of the middle aged people in North America who suffer from abdominal pain, gas, diarrhea, or constipation or both. In the past it was thought to be caused by emotional stress, environmental factors, and genetics. Based upon their review of research they found: 1)diet can change the makeup of bacteria in the GI tract that may contribute to symptoms of IBS;  2) antibiotic use, which disturbs microbiota in the gut is associated with IBS; 3) changes in the gut microbiota  influences the ability of the GI tract to contract to move waste through the system; and 4) changes in the gut microbes can impair communication networks between the immune, nervous and endocrine systems, predisposing people to IBS.  They also found that emotional stress may change the shape and function of microrganisms in the GI tract. Authors were optimistic that their findings would help facilitate treatments for IBS.

a-kerten

Alex Kerten says his life has been framed by the shadows of two cataclysmic events: the Holocaust and the subsequent creation in 1948 of the State of Israel. His parents arrived in what was then called Palestine at the tail end of World War II, having survived the Holocaust taking place in Europe. They met in a refugee camp, one of many that had been set up for the streams of immigrants pouring in after the war, and it was there that he was born in 1945.

The camps were filled with fractured souls who had suffered the horrors of Nazi atrocities and been left plagued by trauma from the past. For many of the children of these survivors like him, that trauma was passed on and became part of their own psychological makeup. As a teenager, he discovered music as an outlet to lighten the heaviness that he felt as a child and the recurring dreams and nightmares he kept having about the Holocaust. I He threw himself  into his new passion and, by the age of 16, he was playing the guitar in a house band that appeared on the radio, performed with leading Israeli artists, and accompanied visiting artists to Israel like Harry Belafonte, Jacques Brel, Rita Pavone, and Marlene Dietrich.

At 18, like every Israeli teenager, Alex was inducted into the Israel Defense Forces where he was first exposed to — and attracted by — martial arts (MA). After completing his mandatory service, he decided to pursue the study of martial arts in Japan and, later, when he returned to Israel, he continued the regimen under Grand Master Gad Skornic. After years of study, in which he also gained valuable real-life experiences, he graduated with seven black belts — four in Kenpo Jitsu, one in Ninjitsu, and two in Hashita.

Over the following decades, while pursuing various business pursuits, he continued to focus on the connection between mind and body and began to study structuring and healing movements at the Dr. Aryeh Kalev center, where he worked and taught arts of healing movements for about 5 years. At the same time he studied psychophysical integration (or mind/body integration) at the Trager Institute, an approach developed by Dr. Milton Trager. Using that knowledge, and structuring movements in martial arts (Tai Jitsu) and effects of music on body-language, body forms, feelings, movement and rhythm he began to work with Parkinson’s patients and established the Gyro-Kinetics method (Gyro=balanced / Kinetics= body movements) which is a preventive rehabilitation program in P.D. The method combines movement, touch, and music to restore the physiological balanced state on physical, mental and emotional levels and aims to improve quality of life by preventing and reducing the multiple clinical disabilities. It has been successfully used in conditions such as: movement disorders, musculoskeletal, vascular, respiratory and digestive disorders.

He then worked for a couple of years  at the Reuth Hospital in Tel Aviv, where with Dr. Marietta Anka he built a pilot study which lasted for three months and consisted of weekly sessions of Gyro-Kinetics (G.K) on 11 P.D patients. Results : All patients finished very satisfied and G.K had a significant immediate post session but also a long standing improving effect on motor parameters.

At the year 2004 he and Dr. Anka participated at the 8th. International Congress of P.D and Movement disorders , which took place in Rome Italy. Conclusion was: G.K seems to be effective on general motor and mood dysfunction in P.D. It can also improve the respiratory and gastrointestinal disturbances and the patients awareness of his disease. Later Alex taught at the Maccabi Health Institute, part of Maccabi health care services in Israel.

He mentioned an incidenthe had about 30 years ago during a Martial arts training. He was choked by one of the instructors. He wouldn’t let go of his grip and Alex’s hand paralyzed, He attempted to get him to stop by looking at him in the eyes. Instead, he interpreted the stare as a challenge and continued the choke hold.

All of the old Holocaust nightmares of torture and humiliation suffered by my family at the hands of Nazis rushed back to Alex — and he fainted.That traumatic incident haunted him and developed into a chronic dreams and nightmares that affected his life for many years. He looked for help by going to various specialists in the medical field, but nobody provided a remedy. So he decided that he was going to have to help himself. He began to investigate the physiology of behavior — brain waves and the way the autonomic nervous system (ANS) in our body affects a person’s anatomy, where we live our traumas over and over again by entering into an anxiety-filled state of being. Alex began to realize that he was constantly repeating those horror stories his father had passed down to him  about the Holocaust, and they were having a debilitating effect on his very being.

Building on his accumulated knowledge of martial arts and behavior patterns of the body and mind, he began to communicate with his body, instead of listening to the stories from the past being constantly generated by his mind;and managed to rid himself of his chronic nightmares and anxiety through mind/body interaction!

With time, Alex began to specialize in behavior patterns, body forms, arts of movement body language, the power of music upon our neural networks and the effects they have upon our body systems. It was then that he decided that he could share what he had learned with others who suffered from chronic disorders.

Clients came to him with behavior problems and unclear chronic diseases for which MDs had no answers. Alex built a methodic program in physical  behavior patterns in which the clients learned about body language, mind language and body mind interraction while acquiring techniques to deal with their chronic problems. Alex became skilled in various forms of physical therapy for pain, movement, posture, respiratory, and attention disorders. His specialty is working with Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients, who, in actuality, suffer from a combination of the above neuropathological disorders.

Based on his knowledge in these fields, he developed the Gyro-Kinetic method, which is founded on the concept of movement, music, and rhythm — creating motion in the body, which stimulates simultaneous physiological, biological, and psychological reactions. Instead of listening to their minds, I Alex teaches clients how to listen to their bodies and communicate between the two. Our minds are constantly dredging up stories and scripts from our past that dictate how we should behave, and we’ve stopped listening to our bodies. This simple but incredibly powerful concept is the key to my method and it has consistently proved its potential upon the symptoms we call “Parkinson’s” and other neurological conditions. He believes that what he teaches  in the fields of the physiology of behavior, martial arts, and the art of movement has a valuable lesson for everyone — especially for people diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s.

Dr Patrick Vicker Discusses the Gerson Therapy

December 4th, 2016

drpvickers

Dr. Patrick Vickers is the Director and Founder of the Northern Baja Gerson Clinic (Gerson Therapy). His mission is to provide patients with the highest quality and standard of care available in the world today for the treatment of advanced (and non-advanced) degenerative disease. His dedication and commitment to the development of advanced protocols has led to the realization of exponentially greater results in healing disease. Dr. Vickers, along with his highly trained staff, provides patients with the education, support, and resources to achieve optimal health.

Dr. Patrick was born and raised outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the age of 11 years old, after witnessing a miraculous recovery from a chiropractic adjustment, Dr. Patrick’s passion for natural medicine was born.

Dr. Patrick obtained his undergraduate degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Life University before going on to receive his doctorate in Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1997.

While a student at New York Chiropractic College(NYCC), Dr. Patrick befriended Charlotte Gerson, the last living daughter of Dr. Max Gerson, M.D. who Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Albert Schweitzer called, ” One of the most eminent geniuses in medical history. “

Dr. Gerson, murdered in 1959, remains the most censured doctor in the history of medicine as he was reversing virtually every degenerative disease known to man, including TERMINAL cancer.

Upon graduating from NYCC in 1997, Dr. Patrick went on to study the Gerson Therapy directly under Charlotte Gerson at her home in San Diego, California. While living with Charlotte, Dr. Patrick spent several months going through Dr. Gerson’s handwritten files of all his active patients from 1910-1959; files that Charlotte has kept in her home to this day. Included in those files were hundreds of handwritten letters from Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Albert Schweitzer, to Dr. Max Gerson. Schweitzer and Gerson were best friends after Gerson cured Schweitzer’s wife, Helena, of terminal tuberculosis when she had just 3 months to live.

Gerson also cured Schweitzer, himself, of severely advanced diabetes, in SIX weeks, eight years before Schweitzer won the Nobel Prize.

After several months of studying Dr. Gerson’s files, and several more months interning at the Gerson Clinic, Dr. Patrick opened chiropractic and Gerson clinics in Peru, Guatemala and Mexico before returning to the United States, in 2008, to open up this non-profit organization dedicated to educating the public on the Gerson Therapy.

Since that time, Dr. Patrick has been traveling around the world lecturing at international embassies, Latin American medical schools and other miscellaneous venues. More information at: http://www.gersontreatment.com/
