Whatcha Gonna Do
When It Comes For You?
Dr. Russell Blaylock
If you don't have diabetes, you're lucky...
But how can you be sure you don't have it — or won't get it?
According to Newsmax medical editor Dr. Russell Blaylock, 5.2 million Americans suffer from full-blown diabetes — and don't know it... yet.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
You could be one of the additional 41 million Americans living with the early stages of this dreadful disease smoldering secretly inside them.
In this timely issue of The Blaylock Wellness Report — "The Diabetes Solution" — you'll see why it's not smart to take diabetes lightly.
Here are some shocking figures:
FACT: Diabetics are 2-4 times more likely to die of a heart attack or suffer a stroke.
FACT: Diabetes is the primary cause of blindness.
FACT: Diabetes also increases your risk of amputation, kidney failure, impotence, nerve damage, Alzheimer's disease and cancer.
And that's not all...
In the early 1990's, only 3% of new diabetes cases in children were Type-2. Now, 45% of new cases in children are Type-2 diabetes — a life sentence for nearly all of them.

BURDOCK ROOT (Arctium lappa)
The burdock is a member of the thistle family and is a common pasture weed throughout North America that prefers damp soils. It grows to more than 3 feet tall and is also called Personata, Happy Major, Lappa, Fox's Clote, Thorny Burr, Beggar's Buttons, Cockle Buttons and Philanthropium.
The roots, young stems and seeds of the Burdock plant are edible. Young stalks are boiled to be eaten like asparagus, raw stems and young leaves are eaten in salads. Parts of the Burdock plant are eaten in China, Hawaii and among the Native American cultures of this continent.
It is the root of the Burdock plant that is harvested for folk medicinal use. The roots are about an inch wide but up to three feet long. The roots should be harvested in the fall of the first year or the spring of the second. Later during the second year the plant produces burrs such as shown in the picture above.
Burdock root contains vitamins B complex and E. Trace minerals are potassium, phosphorous, chromium, cobalt, iron, magnesium, silicon, zinc and sodium. It provides inulin, a helpful sugar for diabetics and hypoglycemics because it does not elicit rapid insulin production.
Buy Burdock root only from a reliable supplier. In one documented case, belladonna was substituted for burdock, causing atropine poisoning (burdock does not contain atropine). Fresh burdock root has a distinct aroma.
Both European and Chinese herbalists have long considered burdock root's "lightly warming, moistening effect" an excellent tonic for the lungs and liver. It reportedly stimulates toxic waste through the skin and urine, improving digestion. The Chinese use Burdock Root as an aphrodisiac, tonic and rejuvenator. Some say it is good against arthritis and rheumatism.
The anecdotal beneficial effects of this herb includes increasing circulation to the skin, helping to detoxify the epidermal tissues. It has been used in treating psoriasis and acne, among other skin conditions. Burdock root has been reported to destroy bacteria and fungus cultures.
Anti-tumor properties have also been reported. Burdock is one of the finest blood purifiers in the herbal system. It is classified as an alterative, diuretic and diaphoretic. It helps the kidneys to filter out impurities from the blood very quickly. It clears congestion in respiratory, lymphatic, urinary and circulatory systems.
SHEEP SORREL (Rumex acetosella)
Common names are field sorrel, red top sorrel, sour grass and dog eared sorrel. It is a hardy perennial, and is much smaller than either French or Garden Sorrel. Is often tinged a deep red hue especially towards the end of the summer. It grows to about a foot high. It has narrow sharp pointed leaves and spikes of green flowers turning to red. Flowers in late spring.
Sheep sorrel grows wild in most parts of the world except the tropics. Abundant in Canada and Britain, it is considered a common weed in the U.S. and thrives with little moisture in acidic soils. Do not buy or harvest more than a year's supply of Sheep Sorrel, as it loses it potency when stored longer. Fresh dry Sheep Sorrel will be green in color and have an aroma of sweet grass. To grow your own Sheep sorrel, there are seed sources on the internet and the seeds are inexpensive (200 seeds cost $3.00 or less).
Sheep Sorrel is high in vitamins A, B complex, C, D, K and E and the minerals include significant levels of calcium, iron, silicon, magnesium, sulphur, zinc, manganese, iodine and copper. Sheep Sorrel also contains beta carotene and chlorophyll; citric, malic, oxalic, tannic and tartaric acids and it is rich in potassium oxalate. Because of the oxalic acid it contains, Sheep Sorrel is sometimes not recommended for people who have a history of kidney stones. For more information, see discussion and opinions about this.
Young Sheep Sorrel leaves were popular as a cooking dressing and as an addition to salads in France several hundred years ago. Indians also use Sheep Sorrel leaves as a tasty seasoning for meat dishes and also baked it into their breads. In early days it was of use against scurvy.
Sorrel plants have been a folk remedy for cancer for centuries both in Europe and Asia, more recently in North America. Alleged to break down tumors and alleviate some chronic conditions and degenerative diseases, it is an astringent and diuretic. It has been anecdotally reported to be a fever reducer, aid digestion, relieve stomach hemorrhage and jaundice. There are no scientific studies that prove Sheep Sorrel does anything of benefit for any health condition.
SLIPPERY ELM (Ulmus fulva)
This elm tree is part of the Ulmaceae family; other members include nettles.
It is a stately tree that reaches 60 feet. Its trunk bark is brown, but its
branch bark is whitish. Its leaves are broad, rough, hairy on both sides,
toothed, and the leaf buds are covered with a dense yellow wool. The flowers
are stalkless. This tree is also known as red elm, moose elm, or Indian elm.
It is a favorite shade and ornamental tree. It is found throughout Canada
and the U.S.
The pinkish white inner bark of the tree contains the tree's healing properties. Slippery elm bark can be purchased in cut or powdered form from an herb supply house. Don't harvesting it yourself because Slippery Elm is close to becoming an endangered tree species.
Slippery elm bark contains, as its primary ingredient, a mucilage, as well as quantities of gallic acid, phenols, starches, sugars, vitamins A, B complex, C, K and P. It contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium, and sodium, as well as lesser amounts of chromium and selenium, and trace amounts of iron, phosphorous, silicon and zinc. The powder should be light beige.
According to herbalists, the powdered bark can be used as a nutritious drink for those with inflammatory bowel disease, or for bronchitis. It is healing and soothing to mucous membranes. Slippery elm's calcium content makes it a good calmative medicine for those with emotional or nervous problems. As a tonic it is known for its ability to soothe and strengthen the organs, tissues and mucous membranes, especially the lungs and stomach.
According to some herbalists, an antibiotic and anti-microbial effect has also been reported along with an ability to remove toxins from the body; therefore, it promotes faster healing of cuts, burns, ulcers and wounds. It is alleged to revitalize the entire body.
Allergic reactions are possible. Otherwise, the medical literature contains no reports of slippery elm causing harm. Again, use only reliable sources, it would be best to purchase this herb because the novice could kill a tree by stripping off bark carelessly. Note: sometimes the powdered commercial product is adulterated with flour or other starchy substances which create a gravy-like decoction, so beware.
TURKEY RHUBARB (Rheum palmatum)
Rhubarb is commonly used for pies, jams and as stewed rhubarb. Its red, bittersweet stems are found in supermarket produce shelves each spring and many people have it in their backyards. The Turkey Rhubarb is a member of the rhubarb family with roots which have a particularly strong and desirable potency.
The leaves of the Turkey Rhubarb are somewhat rough. The root is thick, of an oval shape, sending off long, tapering branches. Externally it is brown, internally a deep yellow color. It has a long thick root, brownish on the outside and full of reddish veins inside, similar to Garden Rhubarb. It flowers early to midsummer. It is also known as East Indian Rhubarb or China Rhubarb and has been used in China for more than 2,000 years.
Turkey Rhubarb must be purchased because its natural habitat is in China and Tibet. Rene Caisse preferred this variety to the common rhubarb because its medicinal properties were stronger and the taste less bitter.
The Turkey Rhubarb root contains vitamin A, many of the B complex, C, and P; calcium, chlorine, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, silicon, sodium, sulfur, and zinc.
The rhubarb root exerts a gentle laxative action by stimulating the secretion of bile into the intestines. It also stimulates the gall duct to expel toxic waste matter, thus purging the body of waste bile and food. As a result, it is alleged that the liver is cleansed and chronic liver problems are relieved. In small doses, the powdered root is an astringent and checks diarrhea, but in larger doses it irritates the colon causing the bowels to evacuate (diarrhea).
If diarrhea or abdominal discomfort develops, contact a qualified health practitioner. It may be necessary to either lower the dosage until the body adjusts to it, or stop taking it.

Possible Side Effects and Cautions About Taking Essiac Tea
Compiled by Anne Harris, former owner of essiac-info.org
Essiac products containing four or more herbs are generally regarded as being benign concerning side effects, except for standard caution that anyone pregnant or nursing should not use it (which applies to any dietary herbal supplement). People react differently to pharmaceuticals and dietary supplements, while some users experience adverse side effects, other users have no problems. The "Possible Side Effects and Cautions About Taking Essiac Tea" are possible, not probable.
Cynthia Olsen says in Essiac, A Native Herbal Cancer Remedy, 2nd Edition page 61,
Though side effects are rare when taking Essiac, there are three general
nausea and/or indigestion, generally caused by eating or drinking too soon before or after drinking the tea,
severe intestinal or digestive discomfort, caused principally because as toxins dissolve, the body tries to eliminate them quickly,
an increase in the size of an existing tumor, caused by the metastasized cells gathering at the original site, before the tumor softens and reduces in size.
Sheila Snow says in her book Essence of Essiac on page 48,
Here are three possible causes of adverse reactions:
A full stomach of undigested food or consuming beverage just before taking the remedy, especially tea or coffee.
Waste materials build up in the body, it attempts to eliminate them all at once. This could create extreme discomfort in the digestive tract, occasionally to the point of vomiting.
A tumor may increase in size (as metastasized cells are gathered to original site) and could cause a blockage in some vulnerable area of the body before it softens and reduces in size.
"When any discomfort occurred, Rene always cautioned her patients to stop taking the decoction for several days until they felt better. Then they were told to begin again with just half an ounce every other day and gradually to increase the dose to one ounce each day. This usually corrected the problem."
Observations by essiac-info.org are that diarrhea, a mysterious lower-back kidney ache, flu-like symptoms or upset stomach may be caused by too high a dose and not drinking enough water.
Anyone taking essiac should increase their water intake, based on the alleged "detoxification" properties of essiac, which is the release of toxins from tissues and blood, excreting them via the intestinal and urinary tracts. According to this theory, the toxins must be diluted as they are released from the body tissues or they become concentrated -- and you end up not feeling well. Hence, the advice to drink three of four quarts of plain water daily if you are taking essiac tea. Soda pop, juice, tea, coffee (which is diuretic) and other beverages do not count in that amount.
You may be allergic to one (or more) of the essiac herbs if you become itchy, developing some itchy rash areas on your body, even itchy runny eyes, and / or you come down with an unaccountable case of hay-fever symptoms with sneezing, runny nose and eyes. Sheep sorrel is thought to be the allergen, according to Mali Klein (who happens to be slightly allergic to it). Try cutting dosage way down or stop taking essiac for a while or stop altogether. Some people who take too much essiac for too long a time may become finally very allergic to it. Case in point, the compiler of this page (grin) -- finally very allergic!
My opinion: if you have NO allergy-symptoms so far from taking essiac, stick to a reasonable dosage. "Reasonable dosage" ranges from a minimum of one ounce per day to a maximum of no more than six ounces tea per day. Use minimum dose if you are just using essiac tea as a tonic -- use more tea up to the maximum dose only for "serious medical conditions".
When I owned essiac-info.org, I tried as many products and recipes as I could, one at a time for a few weeks each, following recommended maximum dosage (stupidly). In 1999, an essiac recipe called "Medicine Wheel" initiated my allergic reactions.
According to Chris Corpening R.N. (A Nurse's Herbal Tea),
"Diarrhea has been the main side effect I have seen, although it is not a common side effect. Gastrointestinal discomfort has also been reported to me on various occasions. According to herbal literature, turkey rhubarb is a laxative and if the body can not handle it, diarrhea will result. My colitis was resolved with this tea and I know of people with other serious gastrointestinal disorders expressing relief after taking this tea. My advice to those experiencing diarrhea or discomfort is to cut the dosage down to 1oz a day (or stop entirely) until the problems resolve, then gradually get yourself back to taking original amount."
Kidney Disease, Kidney Stones
If you have kidney disease or are prone to kidney stones, some sources advise not taking essiac because of the oxalic acid in sheep sorrel and turkey rhubarb. However, this discussion about the oxalic acid is informative and may be helpful to read.
Rene Caisse discussed diabetes here and there in her "I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse" booklet. The following phenomena has been reported by several credible, experienced essiac producers:
"Diabetics who are insulin dependant may need to adjust their
dosage, also those on anti-diabetes medications. All diabetics should monitor
their blood sugar closely while on this tea. Some of the constituents in
this tea can affect the way glucose and insulin are taken up in the cells
and utilized. Many people find they need less medication while taking this
tea. This is not always the case, but is worthy of mention."
About it being "not always the case", monitoring is critical because blood sugar might drop too low, or your blood sugar might shoot up too high, according to this June 2005 email comment:
You need a stronger warning for diabetics. I have been a well regulated insulin dependent diabetic for over fifty years. I followed all directions for making and drinking at proper time. I got very nauseated and my blood sugar shot up to 284 four hours later.
On inquiry, the respondent reported the dosage direction of the dry-mix product he purchased was 2 ounces twice a day (4 oz. per day). Apparently his blood sugar shot up after the first 2 oz dose.
This is worth repeating.... "When any discomfort occurred,
Rene always cautioned her patients to stop taking the decoction for several
days until they felt better. Then they were told to begin again with just
half an ounce every other day and gradually to increase the dose to one
ounce each day. This usually corrected the problem."
So diabetics are advised to start with a tiny dose of 1/2 oz. tea (1 Tablespoon) every other day before gradually increasing dose to 1/2 oz. per day (1/2 Tablespoon twice a day) to 1 oz. per day (1 Tablespoon twice a day). Monitoring should reveal whether blood sugar level goes up or down.
Anyone starting this tea should begin with very small doses, regardless of product directions
RED CLOVER. The description of Red Clover kills cancer cells in the lymph nods and also cleans out all infections in the lymph nods.
Out of 59 people with all types of cancer only one has died in the
last 5 years drinking Essiac Tes. The one person that died was my cousin
Richard, whom I loved very much, and he was cancer free for a year and a half
thinking that he was cured 100 % and quit drinking the tea. A - Nam - Tay
- Say never speaks with a forked tongue.

ALL NEW ADVANCED COLLOIDAL SILVER
Colloidal Silver has been clinically proven to be powerful natural
antibiotic, estimated to kill over 650 different disease-causing pathogens(bacteria,
viruses, fungus and yeast). Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine,
noted that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties. Colloidal
silver was used widely until around 1938 when the FDA came into being and
the movement toward synthetic antibiotics began to emerge. Although used
by NASA on shuttle missions it's use has all but disappeared except for
hospital intensive burn units. A group of scientists in Pharm World Sci
v.19 pp. 197-201 Aug., 1997, refer to colloidal silver as "an antiseptic agent added because of its
known antifungal potency." It has also been reported that having silver
in the bloodstream increases the healing process of fractured bones. Small
amounts of silver have also been used over time to preserve foods. The following
is a list of some of the (pre-1938) documented uses of silver, specifically
in the colloidal form, for the treatment of various conditions and pathogens:
acne, arthritis, athlete's foot, bladder inflammation, burns, B.Tuberculosis, blepharitis, cancer, colitis, cystitis, diphtheria, dermatitis, diabetes, dysentery, ear infections, Eustachian tubes, eczema, fibrositis, furunculosis, gonorrheal herpes, gonorrhea, impetigo, influenza, intestinal conditions, keratitis, leprosy, leukemia, lupus, lymphagitis, malaria, Menier's symptoms, meningitis, neurasthenia, ophthalmology, canine parvo virus, pneumonia, pleurisy, prostate, Pruritis Ani, quinsiie, rheumatism, ring worm, rhinitis, scarletina, seborrhea, septic ulcers, sepsis, septicemia, skin cancer, shingles, soft sores, spruce, staph infections, strep infections, Subdies inflammation, tuberculosis, tonsillitis, toxemia, typhoid, trench foot, ulcers, warts, whooping cough and yeast infections.
Today we are threatened by more "severe" viruses such as the Ebola and Hanta and other "flesh-eating" bacteria. However, understanding that these are merely viruses and bacteria, silver renders these organisms as ineffective in the disease game as any others. Under a microscope, bacteria which have mutated to the point where they laugh at penicillin are quickly dispatched with a few ions of silver.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS COLLOIDAL SILVER?
Angstrom, named after Jonas Anders, (1814-1874) Swedish physicist; pioneer in spectroscopy.
A unit of measure equal to 1 hundred-millionth of a centimeter. In everyday terms, a sheet of paper is approximately 1,000,000 angstroms thick. Visible light covers the range from 4,000 to 8,000 angstroms.
Colloidal Silver is defined as a very small particle of silver, 10 to 5,000 Angstroms in diameter, suspended in a different medium, such as a solid in a liquid. It is most commonly produced today by passing an electrical current over a couple of silver electrodes immersed in water. This process forms an electrical current in the liquid medium that generates particles that become suspended in that liquid. Each colloid particle contains approximately 10-5000 silver atoms. The particles are so small that one billion would fit into a cube four one hundredths of an inch in size. Colloidal silver is also an electrical colloid meaning the silver particles, have a positive electrical charge. Because of the small particle size and electrical charge, the particles repel each other and thus theoretically stay suspended in the water indefinitely and do not settle out.
HOW IT WORKS... theoretically
Colloidal silver works in several ways. Its very effective anti-microbial properties have resulted in use by doctors for the treatment of AIDS, Cancer, Epstein Barr, Gonorrhea, Lyme's Disease, Candida, fungus, warts and parasites.
In order to understand how colloidal silver works, one must first understand the disease-state of the body. The body encounters pathogens and other foreign entities many times a day. When the body is healthy, it maintains a proper pH and oxygen-rich environment.
The pH (parts Hydrogen) inside the cells of the body are usually near an alkaline pH 7.2-7.4. Outside the cell, the fluid surrounding the cells will usually realize an acidic pH near 4.0. However, when an individual does not maintain a healthy environment in the body, the pH begins to rise in the outer fluid and fall inside the cell. This reduces the electrical potential of the cell. The oxygen levels in the body respond by decreasing. Pathogens that grow in the body will usually attack these weakened cells and "set up shop". Organisms that cause illness and attack these weak cells cannot survive in healthy cells that have outer fluid pH below ~4.0 and inner cellular fluid above pH ~6.9. Silver maintains a positive charge which when introduced to areas of infection, disrupt the organisms causing the illness.
Interestingly, colloidal silver kills the pathogens by inhibiting the enzyme(s) that these pathogens utilize to survive in their anaerobic environment. This enzyme(s) is the pathogen's "chemical lung". Without the necessary enzyme(s) for metabolism, growth, regeneration and survival, the pathogens "suffocate" and die. It is believed that viruses are destroyed because the electric valence charge of silver particles cause their protective protein coat, also referred to as the "head", to collapse and are rendered unable to replicate. The cells infected by virus will also be susceptible to enzymatic inhibition. They are then removed from the body by the immune, lymphatic, and intestinal elimination systems. This process is so effective that no pathogen has been recorded to mutate against colloidal silver or live in its presence for more than 6 minutes. While antibiotics are losing their effectiveness, as several strains of germs are becoming resistant to conventional antibiotics, they are not able to develop any resistant strains or immunity to SILVER.
TOXICITY - IS COLLOIDAL SILVER SAFE?
Why is there no toxicity? Because the silver is in a colloidal form, any excess that is not needed by the body is easily eliminated thereby preventing the accumulation in body tissues for long periods of time. There is no known interaction between PURE colloidal silver and any drugs, herbs or medicines. Colloidal silver is reported to be nontoxic to the body. No known cases exist demonstrating the ability to overdose using colloidal silver.

On Herbs and Plants:
Two GREAT reference books for your library:
"A Modern Herbal" - Mrs. M. Grieve
"Medinial Plants of the Mountain West" - Michael Moore
Quick web references on herbs may be found at: www.egregore.com/herbs, or do a search and as long as their is electricity you have a wealth of knowledge there
if that all seems too overwhelming, or time consuming - here's a hint:
find out from a local greenhouse a few you can plant and
"get to know" personally, a few at a time is helpful, then add to your "aquaintences."
I didn't have to look far for "locally grown" herbs.
I started with dandelion www.egregore.com/herbs/dandelion.html as this was very prolific in my area several years ago, and after a summer of harvesting leaves, flowers, and roots with happy results, many meals (salads and greens, and tea for greatly improved liver function) moved on to other herbs and plants in the area.
Mullein, willow, and milk thistle are often very prolific in the midwest and have lots of good uses (headache, digestive, lung problems and cold remedies). So there is a "start" as you become acquainted with our dear little plant friends who have stayed with us growing patiently until we would notice them, rediscover their wealth, and again honor them with relationship.
If you are truly serious about getting the MOST out of your new plant "acquaintences" and wish to honor "relationships" - I add here something that may seem strange to your understanding, but offer it also as helpful advice,
. . . it is a wonderful thing to speak to the these plants before you pick them. Ask their permission to take away some of their relatives for your use, thank them for their giving of themselves and their relatives, and pray for their future generations to live so that we may live also from their use. Leave a little offering first, then harvest with respect. Always leave enough behind so that the plant may contine (or in the case of harvesting roots, leave several plants intact in the area you harvested so that more may grow and thrive there at a future time.)
With the proper attitude and respect and desire to learn, you will discover plants willing to befriend you, and like a cat who "meows" when she wants outside, you will soon be able to "read" the language of these plants and they will share with you their best uses for your needs and benefits of health and help.
