Hormone Trial Ceases Due To Risks
A large government research study, known as the Women's Health Initiative, was abruptly halted on Tuesday July 9th, five years into its 8 1/2-year run. The research, involving more than 16,000 women, began as a means of settling the debate over whether or not Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) benefits menopausal women. Menopause is brought about as a women ages and her ovaries begin to produce less of the key female hormone estrogen, whose absence may bring about any number of uncomfortable emotional and physical changes.
Women in the treatment group received a commonly prescribed pharmaceutical HRT medication consisting of a combination of estrogen and progestin, while women in the non-treatment group received sugar pills as their placebos. It was believed that the introduction of synthetically derived hormone drugs
into a women's body might alleviate menopausal symptoms and create positive side effects. As the study progressed, data began to emerge suggesting that the hormone drugs may cause more harm than good. After five years, results showed that the hormone therapy being used in the trial increased
- a woman's risk of invasive breast cancer by 26 percent
- strokes by 41 percent and
- blood clots by 100 per cent
Also, researchers found that the risk of coronary heart disease did not decrease, as was originally thought.

Are You Unknowingly Poisoning Yourself?
90% of people who take health supplements are poisoning themselves. How?
If you've heard anything about Magnesium Stearate, or Stearic Acid as it is sometimes called, you know that vitamin and supplement bottles everywhere are loaded down with potentially dangerous and life endangering additives that don't need to be there. The reality is that you probably have not heard of Stearic Acid though and that is a shame, because you are missing key bits of information that can help to save your life.
Believe it or not, many supplements, including those made by more reputable brands, contain a flow agent additive that, over time, can actually block the absorption of nutrients into your body. This ingredient is known as magnesium stearate, and regular consumption of it is linked to the development of a harmful “biofilm” in the intestines that may cause digestive problems.
Despite having the word magnesium in its name, magnesium stearate is not a source of nutritive magnesium. The only reason why supplement manufacturers add the chalk-like substance to their products is to make them easier to process through manufacturing equipment. But the long-term health consequences of ingesting magnesium stearate are not worth the risk.
What is Magnesium Stearate?
Magnesium Stearate is absolutely useless to your body; a metal derivative that your body has absolutely no conceivable use for. Supplement companies have been intentionally misleading their customers for some time now, making it sound like the inclusion of this additive is helpful to your general welfare. The truth is much more frightening and a substantial bit more dangerous.
Magnesium Stearate or Stearic Acid is basically a toxin; a combination of hydrogenated oils that gets into your body and starts killing cells almost immediately. The worst part is that there is Stearic Acid in over 90% of the pills currently on the market. Sometimes it is because of the age of the equipment being used to produce pills; other times it is because supplement companies are trying to milk every last bit of profit out of their machines.
So, how does Magnesium Stearate make its way into your supplements so often? It is a manufacturing tool, used to lubricate the machinery and produce more pills, faster. To be more accurate, Stearic Acid is the byproduct of the hydrogenated oils that are used to lubricate the machinery, having accumulated the metals that saturate these highly dangerous oils. Because they are used to lubricate every aspect of pill production, these hydrogenated oils have saturated every ounce of your supplements, making up as much as 5% of a 1000 mg capsule. Not only does this waste valuable supplement space just so a company can make more pills and more money, it reduces the effectiveness of the pills you are taking.
In addition to weakening your pills, Magnesium Stearate may be loaded with pesticides that are used on the Cottonseed Oil that has been hydrogenated. In addition, with the chemical structure of the fatty acids in Stearic Acid having been altered through close contact with various metal catalysts at extremely high temperatures, the risk of toxicity increases dramatically, introducing countless toxic compounds into your body as a result.

To examine the association between rates of cognitive change and dietary consumption of fruits and vegetables among older persons. Methods:
The authors conducted a prospective cohort study of 3,718 participants, aged 65 years and older of the Chicago Health and Aging Project. Participants completed a food frequency questionnaire and were administered at least two of three cognitive assessments at baseline, 3-year, and 6-year follow-ups. Cognitive function was measured using the average z-score of four tests: the East Boston Tests of immediate memory and delayed recall, the Mini-Mental State Examination, and the Symbol Digit Modalities Test. Results:
The mean cognitive score at baseline for the analyzed cohort was 0.18 (range: –3.5 to 1.6), and the overall mean change in score per year was a decline of 0.04 standardized units. In mixed effects models adjusted for age, sex, race, and education, compared with the rate of cognitive decline among persons in the lowest quintile of vegetable intake (median of 0.9 servings/day), the rate for persons in the fourth quintile (median, 2.8 servings/day) was slower by 0.019 standardized units per year (p
= 0.01), a 40% decrease, and by 0.018 standardized units per year (p
= 0.02) for the fifth quintile (median, 4.1 servings/day), or a 38% decrease in rates. The association remained significant (p
for linear trend = 0.02) with further control of cardiovascular-related conditions and risk factors. Fruit consumption was not associated with cognitive change. Conclusion:
High vegetable but not fruit consumption may be associated with slower rate of cognitive decline with older age.
I get asked often about the effectiveness of our ability to demonstrate reversal or reduce of high blood pressure with Proargi9. It is going on three years that we have been offering our clients Proargi9 Plus. We have accumulated over 2000 customers of which many have either stopped or purchased from other companies. However many have become loyal members and have continued the process of reversing their cardiovascular disease. I hear from many of you who have had great success and others who have had marginal success. Many of you have called me and said "I saved your life". That is always comforting when someone feels that the service and product has done what the science says it should do. I have always been disturbed when someone does not have success. I have boiled it down to a few issues;
- The client expects immediate results on "high blood pressure". This is a multifaceted health issue. There are many reasons why Proargi9 plus doesn't work immediately. The state of you cardiovascular system cannot be fixed quickly. It takes years to compromise a system and you cannot expect to have it cleaned out quickly. Many people do have quick results, but for the most part it is the system relaxing and expanding due to the L-arginine. We have learned many things in three years from the experts who have been working on the science of Proargi9 Plus and L-arginine.
2. Inflammation, this is the root cause of cardiovascular and heart disease. There are things you can do to reduce inflammation. Your life style affects your inflammation in your body.
- Foremost in knowledge we have learned that 2 scoops(12 hours apart for each scoop) is just as effective as 4 scoops for most people. Those who are L-arginine resistant 3 to 6 is better or you have serious cardiovascular or heart disease. Only an ADMA test will establish where you are.
- Secondly the time necessary to really reverse out the plaque from you veins takes much longer than we originally thought. The reversal process according to Dr. Rainer Boeger PHD, (L-arginine researcher over 20 years) in Hamburg Germany, works about 15 to 20% per year for older people over 60. In other words it will take 3 to 4 years to complete the process even though your blood pressure has normalized.
- Reduce the stress in your life (major cause of inflammation), we sell a stress reducer called Laminine, 11 clinincal studies
- Change your diet to less red meat and simple carbohydrates. Eat more vegetables and fruit. The better the dietary intake the faster the results.
- Exercise daily for a minimum of 30 min of cardio.
- Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep
3. The client stops following the protocol and taking the product. This is the biggest problem. I have boiled this down to a few reasons;
- Reduce you BMI to less than 30
- Didn't get results fast enough. Impatient.
- Too expensive (We do have a plan where you can buy the product as cheap as the knock-offs, just call us 800-609-8157)
- Started taking the knock-off product and that didn't work, so they quit. ProArgi-9 plus cannot be duplicated effectively, therefore the knock-off will always be subpar. The quality of the L-arginine, the cleanliness and effectiveness of all the ingredients are part of the success of ProArgi-9 plus.
- Didn't have their condition evaluated with testing. There are numerous tests that can be performed to evaluate what might be needed to have more success. Call me and we can discuss these options.
- Too much diarrhea (for most people they just took too much at a time. By spreading out the amount throughout the day, usually diarrhea stops. Also over time the body gets more use to the L-arginine. The mixed berry has Xylitol and that adds to the problem. The new "Grape Flavor" doesn't have Xylitol and that helps.
- You need to add the Vitamin D3 spray to your regiment (5000IU's per day in spray form is 98% effective and super charges Proargi9 and seriusly reduces inflammation, pills are 5% effective), also Vitamin B12, B9 or folic acid in spray form.
- You need to add Magenesium in the amount of 600Mgs per day, this also helps reduce inflammation which is the root cause of cardiovascular disease. We sell this product in its most effective form mixed with calcium.
Testimony Mr. Bob W:
- For hard core cases there are other products we sell as a complete system that can really help reduce inflammation; Resveratrol, Cardio inflamma, Aloe Detox (with cacium bentonite clay for detoxing your body and Aloevera for healing you entire system), and other products.
Three years ago I was 67 ½, and had blood pressure of 250/150. Today, without medication, after taking ProArgi-9 plus my blood pressure is 130/80. My cholesterol was 220 with HDL and LDL out of ratio and today my cholesterol is 160 with my LDL 50 and my HDL 80. It doesn't get any better than that. My triglycerides were over 100 and now they are 60. I had an ADMA test 2 ½ years ago and my propensity for cardiovascular disease was high and now it is in the normal range. One year ago I had a cardiovascular test done, and the "age" of my system came in at 41 years, while 3 years ago it was over 100. I have had many tests done on my cardiovascular system and I watched over time my cardiovascular age reduce. In fact, my heart was not pumping normally. The test showed I had a 95 year old heart, now my "heart age" is equivalent to a 30 year old. I feel much better now, and I know I will live longer without heart disease, which is the No. 1 health killer in the USA.
We have over 2000 customers and I can tell you hundreds have told us that we have saved their lives. I have no end of stories about their much better health, and a much better quality of life. I have had many truckers take the product who were on probation for high blood pressure, and within 90 days were given a clean bill of health. Some drivers took longer to correct their problem.
The ravages of diabetes can be reversed as well.
The High Desert Heart Institute an affiliate of Caesar Sinai hospital did a 90 day study using ProArgi-9 Plus. The 30 people in the study were beyond medical management waiting to die. They were patients from the congestive heart unit, and the results were phenomenal. They tested 200 markers for cardiovascular disease weekly. After just 90 days there was substantial improvement in all markers. The patients felt like they got their lives back. The test was a $750,000 dollar study paid for by the High Desert Heart Institute and today their protocol upon arrival is to use ProArgi-9 Plus, even if they seem ready to die. If you were to enter their facility there is a large banner showing ProArgi-9 Plus. I have heard the testimonies of these people and they are the most grateful people you could ever meet. They are not waiting to die any longer.
Dr Siva Arunasalam, the Director and world class cardiologist, has had many doctors, patients and health orientated people visit the clinic because of the study. He took on the study because of his knowledge of L-arginine and its healing effect on the cardiovascular system. There are many doctors who have embraced this therapy and many more every month. I have had many doctors join our organization. They have joined this wellness movement of natural healing through Synergy/ProArgi-9 Plus in lieu of medicine and surgery. They believe this is where the future is. The Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to three scientists in 1998 for their discovery that L-arginine with other nutriceuticals can reverse cardiovascular disease.

Everything in our appearance, from our posture to the structure of our navel, speaks to the condition of our health, our past and character. The person who understands how to read the language of physical appearance penetrates, at will, the deepest human mystery. This is a master key to "know thyself", to social discernment, and true health. Without this Sacred Life Connection society is doomed to purely analytical technology which must end in failure as is evidenced by the level of sickness and disease in society today. People being whole must be discerned through the lens of our Oneness with the Creators divine design for the body. Oneness as a mindset and lifestyle is another Sacred Life Connection. The view through the lens of Oneness recognizes the subtle clues the facial appearance shows.
The healing art of physiognomy is the ability to analyze facial features to determine the state of health and character of a person. The offense against the body manifest in the face as lines and sagging tissues. Wrinkles begin to appear with illness, stress and emotional problems. Improving the quality of the internal environment of the body improves the beauty of the face and form. Lines and wrinkles have very little to do with age and can be removed by removing their cause. Being happy, getting rest and relaxation, eating for nutritional quality in the right combinations, clean environment and service to others are the true beauticians.
Chinese Face Reading was first recorded in the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine around 2600 B.C., according to the Web site Chi Energy. There is also mention of Homer and Hippocrates writing about face reading during their lifetimes in ancient Greece. By the 13th century, face reading was a well-known practice in Europe.
I do know from personal experience it has merit in diagnosing internal health issues. We have all heard the expression, “You are what you eat.” Teenagers are told greasy French fries and soda pop will give them acne, and as we get older we’re encouraged to eat more Omega Fatty Acids to prevent wrinkles and heart disease.
What we eat affects our internal health, emotion and mental state which shows up on our faces. If you have redness and puffiness around your nose, you may eat too much dairy and be on the verge of a bronchial infection. Bags and purple dark circles under the eyes may indicate a problem with the kidneys. Bumps on the forehead may indicate a bladder infection. Discoloration on the cheeks may be caused by stomach or digestive issues.
I first learned about physiognomy, Chinese face mapping about forty years ago. Researching for a remedy for my skincare concern (eczema), I found physiognomy gave me detailed information about my health. I was amazed by the accuracy. It seemed to easy, but became clear to me that physiognomy makes a correlation between certain areas of the face and internal organs.
My skincare company uses a skin-mapping chart to devise skin care plans and medicinal essential oil custom-blends tailored for my clients’ individual needs. Our skin-mapping chart is influenced by the traditional face reading chart. We sell supplements to treat everything from acne to premature aging, proving that internal health supports our largest organ, the skin.
Physiognomy, face-reading as one easy and affordable way to track your internal health.
So grab a mirror and see if your health issues correspond with your face.

Get ready. Here we go again. The New Year diet resolution and workout craze is upon us. I've been looking at the fads diets popping up and listening to people talk about the dozens, I should say the hundreds of ways to try to lose weight.

If you really think about it this is a horrifying fact. Do you realize everything you put on your body goes into the cells of your body? Our pores are like a two way street, they push out and take in. We also breathe through our skin oxygen to our cells some call it our third lung.
As we talk about cleansing and purification our skin becomes as important in the conversation as our colon, blood and every other organ of our body. Our bodies purge toxins through the skin the most exposed part of us, the part that shows our overall state of health and aging at a glance.
Being as careful of what we put on our skin is as important as what we put in our mouth adds another dimension to our self-healing.
Reading labels, yes more labels to read. But what are we wanting to avoid? What is clogging our pores? Do we even know what ingredients are harmful, or cancer causing agents? Here are a couple of commonly used hazards to avoid.
- Most personal care products, even the so called "natural" products contain harmful petrochemicals which are known cancer causing agents. Remember this stuff is going into the cells of your body when you put it on the skin surface.
- The synthetic fragrances, artificial colors and preservitives used by the cosmetic industry can have as many as 200 chemical ingredients and there is no way to know what those chemicals are, since the label will simply say “Fragrance”.
Being careful with all of your skin care choices because it matters to your current and long term health.
