How to Defeat Fatigue Forever

By Dr. Floyd Taub  (First in a two part series)

For many of us, it sometimes seems as if we are moving at a whirlwind pace and fatigue is just an unfortunate by-product of our on-the-go lifestyles. Occasional feelings of exhaustion and lack of energy can be caused by physical and emotional stress. However, fatigue becomes a problem when you struggle every day to gather the energy and motivation needed to do the things that most of us take for granted: getting out of bed, excelling at work and spending time with our families.SUMMARY

Multivitamin May Reduce Risk of Cardiovascular Disease.

Source: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

According to recent research, women who take a multivitamin may be at reduced risk for heart attack. The study, which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, included 31,671 women with no history of cardiovascular disease and 2,262 women with a history of cardiovascular disease. The results of the trial revealed that in women with no history of cardiovascular disease the use of a multivitamin alone was associated with a 27 percent reduced risk of heart attack as compared with those who did not take any multivitamin. It was also found that those who took a multivitamin along with other supplements had a 30 percent lower risk. Long-term use of multivitamins (over five years) was more strongly linked with lowering the risk of heart attack.

How to Defeat Fatigue Forever  

By Dr. Floyd Taub  
(First in a two part series)

Introduction
For many of us, it sometimes seems as if we are moving at a whirlwind pace and fatigue is just an unfortunate by-product of our on-the-go lifestyles. Occasional feelings of exhaustion and lack of energy can be caused by physical and emotional stress. However, fatigue becomes a problem when you struggle every day to gather the energy and motivation needed to do the things that most of us take for granted: getting out of bed, excelling at work and spending time with our families.

Continual fatigue can have a severe negative impact on quality of life, and it seems to be on the rise. Michael Sharpe, of the University of Edinburgh Scotland, and co-author David Wilks, of the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh, report in the British Medical Journal that up to 20 percent of all patients who seek medical care complain of "persistent and troublesome" fatigue. This makes it one of the most commonly reported symptoms. The authors also uncover another disturbing fact: without treatment the prognosis for fatigue patients is astonishingly poor. More than half will still be fatigued six months after their initial doctor's visit.

There are a number of underlying factors that may cause your malaise. Illnesses such as ibromyalgia, hepatitis C or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), or treatments used in controlling cancer may sap your energy and motivation. Sometimes, however, doctors cannot pinpoint any single cause of fatigue. This general fatigue can be caused by any number of factors including stress, sleep disorders, depression and physical exertion. Additionally, women are more likely than men to suffer from fatigue.

There are a number of steps that your doctor can take when dealing with fatigue. One of the most commonly recommended non-drug treatments is engaging in some physical activity every day. An appropriate amount of physical activity is required by everyone for physical and emotional well-being and people who suffer from fatigue are no exception. A key consideration for fatigued patients is to know how much to do and when to stop the activity. Regardless of the level of activity, the most important guideline is to avoid increasing your level of fatigue. In general, healthcare providers advise patients with fatigue to pace themselves carefully and encourage them to avoid unusual physical or emotional stress. 

Other non-drug therapies your doctor may recommend include massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, self-hypnosis, and therapeutic touch. These options may contribute to feeling better, but they are most effective when combined with physical activity, including aquatic therapy, light exercise (adapted to personal capabilities), and stretching. Some patients may tolerate activities such as yoga and tai chi that require more energy.

Some drug therapies your doctor may try include: 

 1. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs):These drugs can be used to relieve pain in somepatients. Many are available as over-the-countermedications. They are generally safe when used asdirected, but can cause a variety of adverse effects,including kidney damage, gastrointestinal bleeding,abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.There is alsoa slight chance that you may become dependent on them.

2. Low-dose tricyclic antidepressants:Antidepressants may be prescribed to improvesleep and to relieve mild, generalized pain. Someadverse reactions include dry mouth, drowsiness,weight gain, and elevated heart rate


As you can see, drug therapy sometimes comes with potentially harmful side effects. They may not have been shown to cause statistically significant benefits. Fortunately, there is something you can do to help add the spring back into your step safely. One of the most interesting to come along is Biocentric Health’s Alexin ,a new homeopathic agent. Alexin  is also among the first of a new class of therapies known as NanoDrugs(TM), which you’ll be reading about a little later. One of Alexin  components, Taurox SB, has been clinically shown to help banish fatigue and improve your focus and energy all day long. It was developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico Medical School. The other ingredients in Alexin also have a history of beneficial effects in the homeopathic literature.

In Part 2 of this series, you’ll learn more about this amazing product and how it can help you to enjoy your life again. Remember, fatigue may be caused by a serious medical condition, so be sure to consult your healthcare provider with any concerns.

How to Defeat Fatigue Forever  

By:  Dr. Floyd Taub (Second in a 2 part series)

In Part 1 of our article "How to Defeat Fatigue Forever"  I addressed the basic causes of fatigue and some of the conventional treatments doctors rely upon. 

Part 2 of this article addresses the research behind a new class of drug,"Homeopathic Nano Drugs" that is finding favor and benefit for patients dealing with fatigue. 

What Is A NanoDrug(TM)

As you discovered in the following section, Alexin's primary ingredient, TauroxSB, is one of the first of a new therapy class known as NanoDrugs. This cutting edge technology allows scientists to use very small, but extremely potent,amounts of active ingredients. Such small doses mean that harmful side effects and toxicity are almost nonexistent. High potency means that you have to take the drug less often, making it easier to comply with your doctor's prescription and keeping your costs down. 

What Exactly Is Alexin? 

Alexin contains the homeopathic agent known as Taurox SB, a chemical combination of taurine, alanine and an agent to allow oral absorption. The Alexin formula also contains other homeopathic ingredients for fatigue and strengthening the immune system. A series of clinical studies found that Taurox SB helped to improve energy and focus in people complaining of fatigue. Over 90% had a reduction in fatigue. The average reduction was over 50 percent. Because Alexin is administered in extremely low doses, it is one of the safest treatments on the market. It is the only one (except for those that correct anemia) showing statistically significant benefits. 

Alexin works by regulating the amount of cytokines in your body. Cytokines are proteins that your cells secrete in order to help regulate your immune system.Sometimes our cytokine levels get off kilter, however, and many healthcare professionals believe that this imbalance can lead to fatigue, lack of focus,myalgia (muscle pain), and even depression. Alexin's primary ingredient, TauroxSB, has been shown to control cytokine levels in human cells. 

Historic Breakthrough 

Double-blind placebo-controlled studies indicated Alexin with Taurox SB had the potential to help individuals who suffer from the following symptoms. These were then tested in clinical trials. 

1.Fatigue 

2.Allergies 

3.Headaches 

4.Muscle aches and pains 

5.Colds 

6.Viruses 

7.Premenstrual syndrome(PMS) 

8.Neurological problems 

9.Appetite abnormalities 

10. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

A Natural Energy Boost 

All of the ingredients found in Alexin are based on natural products. Taken together these ingredients provide a potent cocktail for relief from fatigue and lack of focus due to any number of ailments. The other Alexin ingredients are homeopathically prepared minerals, which produce benefits from only tiny amounts. Getting adequate amounts of taurine is essential for your health and well-being. 

Taurine is an amino acid that is produced within the body. However, sometimes our bodies do not produce enough of it to keep us healthy. Taurine is concentrated in your brain, eyes and heart. 

The key ingredients are combined to produce Alexin, in a process known as NanoDrug Manufacturing Technology. With this technology, scientists can develop a blend of extremely small amounts of ingredients into a potent and safe treatment. Because it is delivered to your body in very low doses there are few, if any, side effects. This technology is consistent with standard homeopathic methods. Like other homeopathic drugs, Alexin is designed to work with the body gently, not by force, reminding the immune system what is supposed to do rather than imposing an artificial environment on your system.NanoDrug technology makes drugs like Alexin especially potent, probably much more than the typical homeopathic drug. NanoDrug technology also benefits you in another way: You need to take Alexin less often, making it an affordable alternative to pricey prescription drug therapies. 

But Does It Work? 

The data presented here comes from presentations at scientific meetings. As youwill see in a later section of this special report, medical studies have proven time and again that Alexin is an effective and safe treatment for both disease-related and general fatigue. 

The studies included the use of Taurox SB for the prevention of allergy attacks, decreased fatigue, immune system strengthening and improved mental stamina. The allergy study consisted of 18 patients who suffered from allergy symptoms. After taking Taurox, 11 of the patients reported a dramatic reduction in symptoms.The fatigue results were even more convincing. All but one of the study participants reported reduced fatigue symptoms and improved sleep after taking Taurox SB. These patients' fatigue was caused by a number of factors including chronic fatigue syndrome, hepatitis C and cancer. 

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 
(Also known as Chronic Fatigue Immune Disregulatory Syndrome). 

Doctors believe that as many as half a million Americans may be living with the mystery known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). CFS is not like the normal energy ebbs and flows we experience in everyday life. The early sign of this illness is a strong and noticeable fatigue that comes on suddenly and often comes and goes or just never stops. You feel too tired to do normal activities or are easily exhausted with no apparent reason. The profound weakness of CFS does not go away with a few good nights of sleep. Instead, it slyly steals your energy and vigor over months and sometimes years. 

For many people, CFS begins after a bout with a cold, bronchitis, hepatitis, or an intestinal bug. For some, it follows a bout of infectious mononucleosis,which temporarily saps the energy of many teenagers and young adults. Often,people say that their illnesses started during a period of high stress. In others, CFS develops more gradually, with no clear illness or other event leading up to it. 

In addition to fatigue, CFS symptoms include:

1.Headache 

2.Tender lymph nodes 

3.Weakness 

4.Muscle and joint aches 

5.Inability to concentrate 


How Can Alexin Help CFS Sufferers? 

 

A study performed by Dr. S. E. Mayerson and I presented at the First International Conference on Whole Person Hearing in Bethesda, Maryland found that CFS patients may benefit by supplementing their doctor-prescribed treatment plan with the main ingredient in Alexin. Study participants who took about two drops once a day for a month showed a decrease of CFS-related fatigue of almost 50% percent. The doctors also found no incidences of adverse side effects in any of the patients who had supplemented with Alexin. The figure below includes all types of patients; half had CFS. 

Other Causes of Fatigue: Fibromyalgia 

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain,fatigue, and multiple tender points. "Tender points" refers to tenderness that occurs in precise, localized areas, particularly in the neck,spine, shoulders, and hips. People with this syndrome may also experience sleep disturbances, morning stiffness, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and other symptoms. 

According to the American College of Rheumatology, fibromyalgia affects three to six million Americans. It primarily occurs in women of childbearing age, but children, the elderly, and men can also be affected. 

What Causes Fibromyalgia? 

Although the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, researchers have several theories about causes or triggers of the disorder. Some scientists believe tha tthe syndrome may be initiated by an injury or trauma. This injury may affect the central nervous system.  Fibromyalgia may be associated with changes in muscle metabolism, such as decreased blood flow, causing fatigue and decreased strength. Others believe the syndrome 
may be triggered by an infectious agent such as a virus in susceptible people,but no such agent has been identified. 

Alexin Alleviates Fatigue from Fibromyalgia 

Because two of the main symptoms of Fibromyalgia are fatigue and sleeping disorders, Alexin may be an ideal supplement to your doctor-prescribed treatment. Take the case of Diane, a clinical nutritionist, she had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and experienced symptoms such as severe fatigue and depression. She remembered days when she would have to sleep away more than half the day just to function normally. Diane decided to give the Alexin formula a try. She was astounded when, after only five days on the treatment, she began to regain her former strength and energy. 

Most importantly the reduction in fatigue not only continued while on therapy,it appeared to increase each week! 

Other Causes: 

Cancer-Related Fatigue 

Fatigue is the most common symptom reported by cancer patients. In fact, an NIH report revealed that at least 70 percent of cancer patients suffer from life-altering fatigue that is not alleviated by resting. The exact cause of this fatigue is not always known. It can be due to your disease, chemotherapy,radiation, surgery, low blood counts, lack of sleep, pain, stress, poor appetite, along with many other factors. 

Alexin is designed to complement standard medical therapy. It should never be substituted for it. Alexin treats only your fatigue. Your doctor must identify and treat any underlying cause. 

General Fatigue 

After reading through this report, you may feel that Alexin is only appropriate for people suffering from serious illnesses. However, this is not the case. Alexin can be taken by people suffering from any kind of fatigue, whether it is stress-related, due to sleeping disruptions. 

Fatigue can be a normal and important response to physical exertion, emotional stress, boredom, or lack of sleep. However, it can also be a nonspecific sign of a more serious psychological or physical disorder. Fatigue that is not relieved by enough sleep, good nutrition, or a low-stress environment should be evaluated by your doctor. Because fatigue is a common complaint,sometimes a potentially serious cause may be overlooked.

What You Can Do To Relieve Fatigue: 

There are also several lifestyle changes you can make that will help regulate your lack of energy and focus. Here are some tips for reducing fatigue: 


1.Get adequate, regular, and consistent amounts of sleep each night. 

2.Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet and drink plenty of water throughout the day. 

3.Exercise regularly. 

4.Learn better ways to relax. Try yoga or meditation. 

5.Maintain a reasonable work and personal schedule. 

6.Change your stressful circumstances, if possible. For example, switch jobs, take a vacation, and deal directly with problems in a relationship. 

7.Take a multivitamin. Talk to your doctor about what you need and what is best for you. 

8.Avoid alcohol, nicotine, and drug use.

Journal of Nutrition, has researchers reporting that Lycopene and Vitamin E helps suppress the growth of the PC-346C Prostate Tumor. The study, entitled "Combined Lycopene and Vitamin E Treatment Suppresses the Growth of PC-346C Human Prostate Cancer Cells "was a collaboration with leading researchers in the field of urology at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, The Netherlands under the lead of Dr. Wytskevan Weerden.

The results of the study indicate that the combination of lycopene and vitamin E suppresses tumor growth by 73 percent and increases survival time by 40 percent. Lycopene alone tends to inhibit tumor growth and to prolong survival time as well, but less effectively (53 percent and 19 percent, respectively). A phase-II clinical trial with prostate cancer patients is ongoing to evaluate the health benefits of lycopene and vitamin E in humans.

Prostate cancer is a major type of malignancy in men. While established risk factors forthe disease exist including older age, family history of the disease, and race,there is ongoing search for dietary factors and micronutrients, which help lower the risk of contracting the disease. Epidemiologic studies have repeatedly associated a high intake of lycopene, the major tomato-carotenoid,and vitamin E with reduced prostate cancer risk and these two micronutrientsare now among the most promising dietary components with regard to prostatecancer prevention.

Researchers investigated how different doses of lycopene and vitamin E affect prostate tumor growth and whether a combination of  lycopene and vitamin E exerts additional effects. Furthermore, the possibility to use PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels in blood, which is an established clinical parameter for the disease, as a marker for tumor growth during lycopene and vitamin E intake was evaluated.

The study shows that combined treatment with lycopene and vitamin E can suppress by 73% the growth of prostate tumors and improve survival times by 40 percent.

Editors Note:
Dr.Floyd Taub, Chairman of the Biocentric Advisory Panel,  recommends that Men over 50 have an annual PSA test and digital exam, earlier if family history, indicates presence of enlarged prostate or cancer.

KeyHealth Statistics:
  • If you're 40 to 59 years old, there's an almost 60% chance you have an enlarged prostate right now. Older men face worse odds. A staggering 97% of all men will have prostate problems in their lives.These are documented medical facts, not opinions.
  • 220,000 new cases are reported every year.
  • Every 17 minutes someone passes away because of it.

Low Testosterone in Conjunction with Vitamin D Deficiency May Predict Mortality in Older Men with Heart Disease

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE - Vitamin D, Testosterone
"Combination of low free testosterone and low vitamin D predicts mortality in older men referred for coronary angiography," Lerchbaum E, Pilz S, et al, Clin Endocrinol
Free testosterone (FT) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D (vitD) were evaluated for impact of parallel deficiency in a large cohort of older men (n= 2069) referred for coronary angiography. Researchers found an increased risk for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular mortality in men with both low FT and vita and that combined deficiency of FT and VitD may be significantly associated with fatal events.



Multivitamins Effective in Improving Memory

ALZHEIMERS DISEASE, DEMENTIA Multivitamins
"The Effects of Multivitamins on Cognitive Performance: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis," Grima NA, Pase MP, et al, J Alzheimers Dis, 2012 Feb 13.


A systematic review of randomized controlled trials discovered that multivitamins can be used efficaciously to improve cognitive abilities. Meta-analysis was conducted on randomized, placebo-controlled trials (n=10/ n = 3,200) which reported on the chronic effects (>=1 month) of oral multivitamin supplementation on any valid cognitive outcomes. Survey indicated that multivitamins were effective in improving immediate free recall memory.


Multivitamin May Reduce Risk of Cardiovascular Disease.
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Cardiovascular disease or heart disease is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels (arteries and veins). There are several risk factors for cardiovascular disease that are essentially immutable. These are older age, male gender, and a family history of CVD. Additionally, three major risk factors identified include cigarette smoking, dyslipidemia (high cholesterol), and hypertension. Other identified factors associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease include physical inactivity, sleep problems, diabetes mellitus, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, excessive intake of alcohol, thrombotic and fibrinolytic factors, elevated homocysteine levels, certain infections and inflammation, exogenously administered estrogens and androgens, certain psychosocial factors, increased fasting glucose. and frequency of migraines. The synergism of the presence of multiple risk factors must also be considered.

A multivitamin is a preparation intended to supplement a human diet with vitamins, dietary minerals and other nutritional elements. A multivitamin/mineral supplement is defined in the United States as a supplement containing 3 or more vitamins and minerals but does not include herbs, hormones, or drugs, with each nutrient at a dose determined by the Food and Drug Administration and the maximum daily intake that will not cause a risk for adverse health effects. People with dietary imbalances may include those on restrictive diets and those who cannot or will not eat a nutritious diet. Pregnant women and elderly adults have different nutritional needs than other adults, and their physicians may indicate it would be beneficial for them to take a multivitamin.

According to recent research, women who take a multivitamin may be at reduced risk for heart attack. The study, which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, included 31,671 women with no history of cardiovascular disease and 2,262 women with a history of cardiovascular disease. The women were between the ages of 49 and 83 years. The participants completed a questionnaire regarding their use of dietary supplements, diet and lifestyle factors. After an average of follow-up of over ten years, a total of 932 cases of heart attack were noted in the cardiovascular disease-free group and 269 heart attack cases in the group with a history of cardiovascular disease. The results of the trial revealed that in women with no history of cardiovascular disease the use of a multivitamin alone was associated with a 27 percent reduced risk of heart attack as compared with those who did not take any multivitamin. It was also found that those who took a multivitamin along with other supplements had a 30 percent lower risk. Long-term use of multivitamins (over five years) was more strongly linked with lowering the risk of heart attack.
