It has been a very busy time at the clinic, with lots of hard work behind the scenes to provide you with the best care possible.  For the last few months, Laurie and Niko have been working hard to get our systems in place to make your time at the clinic as pleasant and efficient as possible.  Over last couple of months we've been very glad to have Steve here assisting everyone, allowing us to provide the docs, and most importantly you, with smooth and rapid service. 

I have spent much of the last few months studying and researching one of our newest products in the clinic, which is our Product of the Month.  Certainly this product will be a candidate for the 2011 New Product of the Year.  If you try Brain Sustain, please always be sure to let me know what you think of it and send me any questions that you may have about it.  Read on!

Schedule Changes May 26th - May 31st

Out of the Office Friday, May 27 and Monday, May 30

In the Office Tuesday, May 31 from 8:00 - 12:30

RE: Your Health, You Should Know

In March, the FDA finally determined that there will be a new warning on all Ulcer or Gastric Reflux drugs that are Proton Inhibitors.  This includes Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid and numerous others by different companies.  Low magnesium levels can lead to complications such as muscle spasms, irregular heartbeat and seizures.

A few key points regarding this long overdue warning.
  1. These drugs work by blocking the normal production of stomach acid that is essential for absorption of many nutrients, including Magnesium and Calcium, as well as Proteins. 
  2. They have also realized that these drugs are causing bone loss in individuals taking them for an extended period of time.  This of course is due to the above loss of calcium and magnesium, both essential for bone health.
  3. The fact that this problem did not show up in the initial safety testing of these drugs is actually shocking, as they are finding with Magnesium some people have problems within 3 months of starting them. Thus once again highlighting the shortcomings of drug safety research.
  4. These drugs were really designed for short term use, however, many M.D.'s continue to prescribe them for years on end.
  5. Sales of Anti-Ulcer medications in 2010 were approx. $13 Billion in the U.S. alone!

Lastly, most of the time with dietary changes and certain supplements, we can get this condition under control, naturally, safely and with your health improving instead of being compromised.

Brain Sustain - Product of the Month (Year) 

Brain Sustain is an exciting new product designed by noted Brain Nutrition Expert, Neurologist, David Perlmutter, M.D.

Brain Sustain is a rich combination of vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants designed to support brain health, enhance brain function, promote healthy memory and offer strong protection against the damaging effects of free radicals. These free radicals are highly associated with brain damage that can lead to the degenerative diseases of the brain.

Who is it for?

Brain Sustain is for anyone over 45 who wants to minimize their risk of future cognitive decline and brain related degenerative diseases, i.e., Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's Disease, etc.

Brain Sustain is also very important for anyone with a history of brain damage from physical injury, stroke or excess alcohol or drug use.  Often times these individuals will notice fast and significant cognitive improvement.

Anyone who has a history of Cardio Vascular Disease or risk factors will also benefit from Brain Sustain.  This includes those with high blood pressure and smokers, as well as anyone with a family history of heart disease, or a positive calcium score on the heart scan.  This is the best meal replacement supplement for Heart Health that I have seen so far.  Many of the vitamins and anti-oxidants that are essential for the brain are also essential for the heart and the cardio-vascular system.

Additionally, anyone who wishes to maximize their brain function can use Brain Sustain!

The qualities of the nutrients in Brain Sustain are very high, and are all present at therapeutic levels.  Many products use nutrients at such low levels that they offer little to no therapeutic value, and are often included mainly for marketing purposes.  That is not the case with Brain Sustain. 

Such a Deal!  The cost of Brain Sustain, if taken as a meal replacement for either breakfast or lunch, is significantly offset by not having to buy food for that meal. For many people, it will actually cost less than the food they would normally eat (thus the free part), for others slightly more. Also, for almost all of my patients, I can reduce the dosages of some of their other supplements since they are covered in Brain Sustain already.

The individual nutrients alone would amount to over $294 for a month's supply of equal quality products if bought separately.  We are selling Brain Sustain for $77.50 per container, which is a half-month supply.  This is below the suggested retail of $79.95.  So, for $155.00 per month, one gets $294 worth of very high quality nutrients, and you are offsetting the cost of this by not having to buy and prepare 30 meals that month.  And most importantly, you are getting the single most comprehensive brain and heart meal replacement supplement I have seen so far. 

Brain Sustain comes in three flavors; Vanilla, Chocolate and Chai.  It is a very quick meal; just mix 2 scoops with about 8 ounces of water (more or less depending on the thickness you prefer), shake it up, and drink it down!  Most people like the taste, with vanilla and chocolate running about equal in popularity. 

For optimal brain support it is critical that you take your Omega 369 or our EPA/DHA capsules also. 

What can you reduce from your current program that I have you on?  Anyone on our very popular liquid Max Stress B can reduce their dose by 50%.  If you are currently on one of our CoQ10's, L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, or Oncoplex, please see me to determine your dose changes. 

The Oncoplex in this product is added for it's tremendous anti-oxidant capacity, and is also considered one of the single best products for protecting against cancer risks, especially cancers associated with hormonal imbalances (I.E., breast, prostate, uterine, and ovarian).  Oncoplex is a patented product.  It is the concentrated form of the ingredient in broccoli that has caused broccoli to be recognized as helpful in cancer prevention. The amount of Oncoplex alone in Brain Sustain would cost $34 per month if bought separately.

The other really good news is that so far approximately 80% of our patients who have tried this product notice immediate brain function benefits!  Some are more dramatic than others.  Don't worry if you take Brain Sustain and don't notice anything, it is working to reduce your risk of those degenerative diseases of the brain and heart without you noticing.  Additionally, Brain Sustain is the perfect product for that spouse who doesn't want to take a lot of pills or be on a complete nutritional program.

Next month I will have an article on how you can use Brain Sustain for your kids at reduced dosages, depending on their size.

Special Offer: from now until the end of June you can buy Brain Sustain at a special discounted price of $72.50!  That is more than 10% off of the suggested retail price!

As usual we have had a lot of patients go through our Spring Cleaning Program and it is not too late to join the crowd.  As usual, patients find it very valuable for getting back on track with better dietary habits, for most a quick way to lose a few extra pounds, for all very Time Saving, and usually all at little to no cost, as the product cost is offset by not buying food for two meals per day.  All that and you will also have reduced your bio-chemical toxin load, which we all have to stay on top of.
