Wall Street Journal Article: Healthy Living and Cordyceps

This is a great article that I found in the Wall Street Journal.  I’ve highlighted some parts of the article and posted them below in bold italics.  I really believe in combining eastern and western medicine.  Most people call it “alternative” which I don’t understand why. Years ago most people never knew the benefits of green tea, acai or even raw chocolate.  I view herbs and cordyceps the same way I do when  I drink green tea.  They are nutritional supplements to complement my health regiment.  For example, the reason I take a multi-vitamin is that it acts as a safety net in case you missed out on a vital nutrient in your busy schedule.  I know sometimes I forget to eat enough green veggies on a busy Monday.   If you’re interested in adding cordyceps to your diet and more about preventive medicine you can reach me at hannahtran1@gmail.com.  I am a distributor of pharmaceutical grade Nu Skin brand cordyceps.  NuSkin is a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange, and a global direct selling company that develops and distributes personal care products and nutritional supplements that are sold worldwide under the Nu Skin and Pharmanex brands and a small number of other products and services.

The most expensive item right now are cordyceps, a caterpillar fungus imported from Tibet that is good for the liver and kidneys and overall health. The price: $1,000 an ounce.

Mrs. Su works at Gouverneur Healthcare Services on the Lower East Side. She’s a medical doctor, an internist.  “I believe in the combination of the two,” she said of Eastern and Western medicine. “I believe acupuncture and herbal medicine and Western medicine” complement each other.

The Smart Money Went Here to Avoid the Markets Onslaught

The markets fell big today, and they fell pretty hard.  Let’s just say, today was a ride!  The markets were brought down by the oil and silver markets.   Oil which was $114.80 a barrel broke below $100. Silver dropped from $49.80 to 35.00 in five days.  That’s a huge percentage.  Anyone that was involved with silver over the past four weeks got hurt.  While they were getting hurt, the smart money was allocating their funds to consumer goods in the personal products area.   The best performing companies were, Nuskin (NUS), Estee Lauder (EL),  United Gaurdian (UG), Energizer Holdings (ENR), Alberto-Culver Company (ACV).    Everyone needs personal care products and are resilient during harsh economic times.  The numbers don’t lie.  Institutions and investors put their money in companies that generate profits.  Companies generate profits when their products sell.  Products sell when consumers like and use their products.  People like Apple’s iPod even though it was technologically inferior to Microsoft’s Zune.  We can see that in Apple’s price vs. Microsofts.   Price doesn’t lie, b/c  people put their money in companies with future growth and increased dividens.  It’s free market capitalism.   Nuskin and Estee Lauder are the strongest.  Nuskin has exposure to China’s economic growth.  While the markets were falling, Nuskin’s price actually moved higher.   I don’t believe in catching a  falling knife.  I buy strength and not weakness.

Protecting Yourself from Radiation Poisoning

“Adding tumeric, reishi and cordyceps mushrooms can protect bone marrow. Antioxidants such as berries can help the body defend itself. A HEPA filter can keep free radicals at a minimum.”  

http://www.t2conline.com/news-room/headliners/1443-curing-yourself-safely-from-radiation

 

“The good news is the earthquakes are lessening. As of today 539.  The bad news, volcano activity is on the rise.  Mount Karangetang, located on Siau island off the coast of Sulawesi island, began spewing jets of hot clouds and lava, prompting authorities to order the evacuations of three villages.  As the threat of radiation looms, what are the natural approaches to protecting oneself?

Potassium iodide protects against high doses of certain types of radiation. Anyone who has had a thyroid problem knows of this. The best kind is Iodine Nascent. Three drops, three times a day can cure a thyroid problem as well. Add Magnesium Oil and Selenium and you can naturally cure an under or over active thyroid problem. I know because I was diagnosed with Hoshimoto’s and could not take the synthetic pills. They made me ill. Within three weeks of a regime of the above three, the diagnosis was reversed.

If ingested immediately after a nuclear accident, potassium iodine, can help reduce the dose of radiation to the thyroid and thus the risk of cancer. Iodine Nascent is Iodine in its purest form and you can get it from E-bay and other internet sites. This really is the best way to buy it, so look for the word “nascent” attached.

Wind can carry radiation as can airplanes and people. Since we are about to import many Japanese, as well as Americans living and working in Japan, to the U.S., we need to think about protection. If you travel overseas everything is checked, but with this crisis looming how do we save lives and keep radiation at a safe distance? Holistic protection is our best bet.

Adding tumeric, reishi and cordyceps mushrooms can protect bone marrow. Antioxidants such as berries can help the body defend itself. A HEPA filter can keep free radicals at a minimum.

Gingko biloba protects against DNA damage.

If you have other helpful remedies, please post.”

Journal of Biological Chemistry: Cordycepin Continues to be an interesting Lead Compound for Cancer Therapy

Cordyceps miltaris and has been proposed as the active component of traditional medication that is reputed to alleviate a large variety of ailments (1,,3). It has been reported to have numerous biological activities, including the inhibition of cell proliferation (4,,6), induction of apoptosis (7,,10), inhibition of platelet aggregation (11), inhibition of cell migration and invasiveness (412), and inhibition of inflammation (13). In mice, cordycepin can reduce tumor formation in a model of metastasis (12) and has therefore been proposed as a cancer drug.
