A Recipe for Health – building a strong immune system.
In this book Professor Ian Brighthope and his co authors Ruth Maier and Peter Fitzgerald draw together the connections between poor diet and increased susceptibility to infectious diseases.
They discuss the most important nutrients for a good immune system – protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins A, C and B complexes, zinc, iron, manganese, magnesium, copper and the trace elements selenuim and germanium.
They also explain the damaging effects of highly processed food that are full of artificial chemicals that only confuse the body, while lacking in any nutrition.
After explaining the science behind good diet, this book contains a number of recipes for cheap, nutritious foods. These range from juices to breakfast foods, soups to salads, Main dishes and desserts.
Highly recommended for people who want to understand both why it’s important to eat well, and what sort of meals you can create for yourself and your family.
The Vitamin Cure for Diabetes.
This book addresses the epidemic of obesity and diabetes in Western nations, and what you can do about it.
Lack of regular physical exercise, processed foods that are high in refined sugars yet have virtually no nutrition, metabolic disturbances like poor sleep patterns and damage to the immune system from pesticides and pharmacy products may be contributing to the rising rates of diabetes across the globe.
During normal digestion most food is broken down into glucose and released into the bloodstream. This rise in blood sugar simulates the pancreas to release insulin. This opens up channels in the cell membranes, allowing glucose to enter the cells to produce energy.
In people with diabetes, the pancreas either produces little or no insulin, or the bodies cells do not respond well to the insulin that is produced.
The result? The bodies cells are starved of energy, while glucose levels continue to rise in the blood stream to abnormal levels, causing widespread damage.
This book discussed the different types of diabetes, their possible causes, common diagnostic tests and nutritional solutions, including vitamin and mineral supplements.
This book was originally published in 1987 under the title You Can Knock Out AIDS with Vitamin C and Immune Nutrients!
Professor Ian Brighthope states that the answer to treating AIDS is to build up the bodies own depleted immune system using high doses of vitamin C, micronutrients, good diet, meditation and exercise.
AIDS first appeared in the early 1980’s and appears to be caused by a retrovirus.
High doses of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is known to inactivate viruses, to be beneficial in the treatment of severe viral infections, strengthen the bodies own immune system and to help fight off cancers.
Professor Brighthope discusses clinical trials showing the success of high dose vitamin C in treating other serious viruses.
He also shows the close connection with poor nutrition and infectious disease all through history.
Sadly the modern medical profession have brushed aside good nutrition, in favour of expensive tests and pharmaceutical drugs.
The message of this book is that there is a way to beat AIDS and it’s many distressing complications, without resorting to toxic treatments like chemotherapy.
Fighting Fatigue and the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Fighting Chronic Fatigue was first published in 1990. The book opens with the following quote –
‘The overuse of synthetic chemicals in agriculture, industry and medicine over the past few decades is the greatest uncontrolled experiment on humanity and life’.
Professor Brighthope distinguishes between normal fatigue after vigorous exercise or a hard days work, and the seriously debilitating symptom know as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) characterised by the following –
- Generalised fatigue that does not improve with rest
- Impaired concentration, difficulty with short term memory, difficulty finding words or ‘brain fog’
- Irritability, mood swings and depression
- Aching muscles and headaches
- Sleep disturbances
- Lymph node swellings.
Professor Brighthope believes that the chronic symptoms of CFS show disturbance of the two most sensitive systems in the body, the immune system and the nervous system.
These systems react very badly when exposed to artificial food additives, heavy metals, pesticides and electro magnetic radiation.
After discussing the tendency to misdiagnose CFS as a mental illness or even worse as laziness, he suggests changes to lifestyle, habits and diet.
He gives examples of nervous diseases in the past that were eventually linked to exposure to heavy metals like mercury and lead.
He also talks about chronic viral infections like Epstein-Barr, how this can be reactivated by a weakened immune system that cannot fight off minor infections, the overgrowth of fungal infections after antibiotics and the damage to cellular metabolism caused by excess exposure to free radicles.
He lists an astonishing amount of household goods that contain artificial chemicals not found in nature, from detergents to pain, vinyl furniture, hair sprays, tooth paste, gas heaters and nearly all plastics.
He also discusses malnutrition due to the poor quality of food sold in modern supermarkets and take away shops.
Removing our exposure to artificial chemicals, metals and EMR while boosting the bodies own immune system with nutritious food, is Professor Brighthope believes, a successful way to treat CFS.
You can Sleep Soundly every Night without drugs.
‘It is estimated that approximately 30% of the population will be complain of insomnia of some sort while 20% will seek help for it.’
Sleep is essential for the rejuvenation of every cell in the body, and especially important for the nervous system.
Dream sleep or Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep is essential for mental and physical health.
A number of factors affect our poor sleeping patterns.
Lack of physical exercises.
Exposure to electronic light sources – from computers.
Interference in the normal circadian rhythm due to shift work or late nights
Hyperactivity and overstimulation due to refined sugars, caffeine and food additives
Lack of essential nutrients such as the B vitamin Niacinamide, the amino acid Tryptophan, magnesium, calcium and vitamin C.
Herbs such as Vervain, Lemon balm, Camomile flowers, Lime flowers, Valerian, Scullcap, Hops and Passion flower can be very helpful.
‘Meditation is probably the single most powerful therapy in the management of any disease.’
Some medical conditions can interfere with sleep. These include chronic pain, cramps, infections, sleep apnoea, high blood pressure, heart disease and neurological conditions like Parkinson’s Disease.
Finally the book lists a glossary of terms, herbs, vitamins and minerals that can help with sleep disorders.
