Why a Pierre@ Ecohealth Effervescent Fizzy Product?



Little was known on the impact of pharmaceutical aspects on the age-appropriateness of a pediatric medicine. There are also many products on the market. Some with countless mineral and vitamin combinations.

For decades, there has been a general lack of (authorized) formulations that children are able to and willing to take.

Effervescent products provide in the new era of medicine a much more efficient way of taking supplements or medication.

New Research

Dietary supplements containing micronutrients and vitamins C and D are a safe, low-cost, and effective way of helping the immune system fight off COVID-19 other acute respiratory tract diseases according to a new report.

Adrian Gombart of Oregon State University says: “A nutritional focus on the immune system could help minimise the impact of many kinds of infections. The present situation with COVID-19 and the number of people dying from other respiratory infections make it clear that we are not doing enough. We strongly encourage public health officials to include nutritional strategies in their arsenal.”

The research was carried out by Gombart of Oregon State University‘s (OSU) Linus Pauling Institute and collaborators at the University of Southampton (United Kingdom), the University of Otago (New Zealand) and University Medical Centre (The Netherlands), and findings have been published in the journal Nutrients.

Pierre@Ecohealth Effervescent

After careful consideration and with info in various new research reports, Pierre@ Ecohealth decided to invest into an effervescent containing the nutrients stated in the newly released research reports on Covit-19.

Pierre @ Ecohealth asked accomplished Pharma formulators in assisting with an own unique functional immune booster effervescent product, based on the abovementioned reports. A product that is been absorbed immediately into the body, with vitamins and minerals in a recognizable format for usage by the immune system, and immediately stimulate and activate the B-cell and T-cell production of the immune system.

The Pierre @ Ecohealth Effervescent Fizzy Immune Booster.

1.1 Vitamin D

  • To promote healthy bones and teeth
  • To support the immune, – brain-, and nervous health systems
  • To regulate insulin levels and to support the management of diabetes  
  • To support lung function
  • To support cardiovascular health

To influence the expression of genes involved in cancer development

  1. Vitamin D and Healthy Bones
  • Vitamin D plays a significant role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood. These factors are vital for maintaining healthy bones.
  • People need vitamin D to allow the intestines to stimulate and absorb calcium and reclaim calcium that the kidneys would otherwise excrete.
  • Vitamin D deficiency in children can cause rickets, which leads to a severely bowlegged appearance due to the softening of the bones.
  • Similarly, in adults, vitamin D deficiency manifests as osteomalacia, or softening of the bones. Osteomalacia results in poor bone density and muscular weakness.
  • A vitamin D deficiency can also present as osteoporosis, for which over 53 million people in the United States either seek treatment or face an increased risk.
  1. 2. Vitamin D reduce the risk of flu
  • 2018 review of existing research suggested that some studies had found that vitamin D had a protective effect against the influenza virus.
  • However, the authors also looked at other studies where vitamin D did not have this effect on flu and flu risk.
  • Further research is, therefore, necessary to confirm the protective effect of vitamin D on the flu.

1. 3. Vitamin D and Healthy infants

  • Vitamin D deficiency has links to high blood pressure in children. One 2018 study found a possible connection between low vitamin D levels and stiffness in the arterial walls of children.
  • The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) suggest that evidence points to a connection between low vitamin D exposure and an increased risk of allergic sensitization.
  • An example of this is children who live closer to the equator and have lower rates of admission to hospital for allergies plus fewer prescriptions of epinephrine autoinjectors. They are also less likely to have a peanut allergy.
  • The AAAAI also highlight an Australian study of egg intake. Eggs are a common early source of vitamin D. The children who started eating eggs after 6 months were more likely to develop food allergies than children who started between 4–6 months of age.
  • Furthermore, vitamin D may enhance the anti-inflammatory effects of glucocorticoids. This benefit makes it potentially useful as a supportive therapy for people with steroid resistant asthma.

2. Vitamin C

  • One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost their immunity, as vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system.
  • First, vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infection.
  • Second, vitamin C helps these white blood cells function more effectively while protecting them from damage by potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals.
  • Third, vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It’s actively transported to the skin, where it can act as an antioxidant and help strengthen the skin’s barriers.
  • Studies have also shown that taking vitamin C may shorten wound healing time See Source 1 and Source 2.
  • Low vitamin C levels have been linked to poor health outcomes.

For example, people who have pneumonia tend to have lower vitamin C levels, and vitamin C supplements have been shown to shorten the recovery time. See Source 1 , Source 2.


Vitamin C may boost immunity by helping white blood cells function more effectively, strengthening your skin’s defense system, and helping wounds heal faster.

3. Selenium

  • Your immune system keeps your body healthy by identifying and fighting off potential threats. These include bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
  • Selenium plays an important role in the health of your immune system. This antioxidant helps lower oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation and enhances immunity.
  • Studies have demonstrated that increased blood levels of selenium are associated with enhanced immune response.
  • On the other hand, deficiency has been shown to harm immune cell function and may lead to a slower immune response
  • Studies have also associated deficiency with an increased risk of death and disease progression in people with HIV, while supplements have been shown to lead to fewer hospitalizations and an improvement in symptoms for these patients
  • Additionally, selenium supplements may help strengthen the immune system in people with influenza, tuberculosis, and hepatitis C

SUMMARY Selenium is crucial for the health and proper functioning of your immune system. Higher levels of selenium may help boost the immune systems of people with HIV, influenza, tuberculosis, and hepatitis C.

4. Beta Carotene (Vitamin A)

Antioxidants such as beta carotene play crucial roles in the body’s fight against free radicals. There is a lot of evidence to support the intake of antioxidants in order to help reach optimal wellness. Consuming beta carotene has been linked to the following:

4.1 Vitamin A improves Cognitive function

One study involved more than 4,000 men over an 18-year period. It linked the long-term consumption of beta carotene to a slowing of cognitive decline. However, no significant difference was found over a short-term period. There may have been other contributing factors in the group that consumed beta carotene long-term.

4.2 Vitamin A promotes good skin health

Taking beta carotene may reduce sun sensitivity for certain people who have the blood disorder erythropoietic protoporphyria. It may also have this effect for people with other photosensitive diseases.

Vitamin A or Beta carotene may also reduce the effect of phototoxic drugs. Other research has shown that it may prevent skin damage and contribute to maintenance of skin health and appearance. This is due to its antioxidant properties.

4.3 Contributing to lung health

High doses of beta carotene (15-milligram supplements) may increase the likelihood of lung cancer for smokers. However, a recent study involving more than 2,700 people suggested that eating fruits and vegetables rich in carotenoids such as beta carotene had a protective effect against lung cancer.

4.4 Vitamin A is reducing macular degeneration

  • Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that affects vision.
  • According to researchers, taking high doses of beta carotene in combination with vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, and copper may reduce the risk of advanced AMD by 25 percent.
  • However, higher intakes of beta carotene have been linked to higher incidence of lung cancer for smokers. Because of this, the formula was later modified, and beta carotene was removed. For those who are not smokers, there were no issues with taking beta carotene, but food sources are always the safest source of beta carotene.
  • Here are eight nutrients that will further optimize your eye health.

4.5 Vitamin A: Preventing cancer

  • According to the National Cancer Institute , antioxidants such as beta carotene can reduce or prevent free radical damage.
  • This type of damage has been linked to cancer. However, many observational studies have shown mixed results. In general, eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables full of phytochemicals and antioxidants is recommended over supplementing beta carotene.
  • This is particularly true for those who already have cancer.

5. Zinc

6. Piperine extract

Boosts absorption of nutrients: 

Bio-piperine is die black pepper active Pierre@Ecohealth use to increase the absorption of essential nutrients like calcium and selenium, as well some beneficial plant compounds, such as those found in green tea and turmeric (1Trusted Source44Trusted Source)

7. Bioflavonoids

  • Bioflavonoids are antioxidants. These compounds protect the cells from free radical damage. Free radicals are toxins in the body that can damage healthy cells. When this happens, it is called oxidative stress.
  • Other antioxidants, like flavonoids, may not be found in high concentrations in the bloodstream alone. But they may affect the transport or activity of more powerful antioxidants, like vitamin C, throughout the body.

7.1 Antioxidant power

Researchers share that bioflavonoids may help with a number of health issues. They have the potential to be used therapeutically or protectively. Flavonoids may also influence the ability of vitamin C to be absorbed and utilized by the body. The antioxidant power of flavonoids is well documented in different studies. Flavonoids work in a variety of ways.

Bioflavonoids can:

  • Interfere with the enzymes that create free radicals, which suppresses reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation
  • Scavenge free radicals
  • They deactivate bad free radical molecules before they cause damage
  • Protect and increase antioxidant defenses in the body
  • When antioxidants stop free radicals in their tracks, cancer, aging, and other diseases may be either slowed or prevented.

7.2 Bioflavonoids and Allergy-fighting potential

Allergic diseases may respond well to taking in more bioflavonoids.

This includes:

  • atopic dermatitis
  • allergic rhinitis
  • allergic asthma
  • Development of allergic diseases is often associated with excess oxidative stress on the body.
  • Bioflavonoids scavenge free radicals and stabilize the reactive oxygen species. This can lead to fewer allergic reactions.
  • Bioflavonoids also reduce inflammatory responses that contribute to diseases like asthma.
  • May reduce inflammation

Free radicals may do more than simply damage your cells.

8. Pelargonium extract

  • Pelargonium sidoides, commonly known as African geranium, is a medicinal herb. It is also sold under the brand names Kaloban and Umckaloabo as a plant-derived pharmaceutical.
  • Pelargonium sidoides is highly effective for treating acute bronchitis. It increases the body’s natural healing rate. Studies have found that 40-60% of patients suffering from acute bronchitis fully resolve their symptoms within a week of Pelargonium sidoides supplementation. Some people reported experiencing benefits after just two to three days. People that are not cured after a week still experience benefits from Pelargonium sidoides supplementation, since it can treat the symptoms associated with bronchitis, including headache, fever, fatigue, cough, chest pain while coughing, sputum in the lungs, rhonchi, and nasal dripping.
  • Preliminary evidence suggests Pelargonium sidoides can reduce the duration of the common cold, while treating symptoms.
  • It may also provide benefits for people suffering from lung disorders, by alleviating flare-ups in symptoms.
  • Pelargonium sidoides has anti-infective properties. It prevents bacteria from adhering to cells, helps fight viruses and stimulates the immune system to hunt down invaders.
  • Pelargonium sidoides may be able to fight Helicobacter pylori infection, which is the stomach bacteria that causes stomach ulcers. Pelargonium sidoides may also reduce the replication of the herpes simplex virus.

9. Echinacea extract

  • Echinacea is best known for its beneficial effects on the immune system.
  • Numerous studies have found that this plant may help your immune system combat infections and viruses, which could help you recover faster from illness Source 1, Source 2, Source 3
  • That’s one reason why echinacea is often used to prevent or treat the common cold.
  • In fact, a review of 14 studies found that taking echinacea may lower the risk of developing colds by more than 50% and shorten the duration of colds by one and a half days

Pierre @ Ecohealth Kambucha



In my navorsing vind ek al hoe meer studies wat daarop dui dat nie net algemene gesondheid nie, maar dat daar ‘n korrelasie is tussen probiotiese bakteriese gesondheid in die spysverteringskanaal en depressie, AHDH by kinders  en ander toestande van geestesgesondheid.

Al hoe meer studies wys op die verband van gewigsverlies, veral maagvette wat deur kambucha beïnvloed word en getakel te word en afgebreek word.

Buiten die verskriklike hoë Vitamien B12 wat kambucha bevat, is daar studies, soos jul in die stukkie hieronder deur my geskrywe te vind. Klik gerus op die skakels.

Kyk gerus na die rol van kambucha by kolesterol. En hoe dit kandida beveg. Watter impak, al is dit klein en gering, by prostaat, kolon, en borskanker.

Ek was veral geïnteresseerd in die bydrae wat dit speel by Tipe 2 diabetes. Hoe dit die vertering van stysel verstadig sodat dit nie ‘n bloedsuiker “spike” veroorsaak nie.

Ek het besluit om my eie brousel te maak, wat naas die normale kambucha ook ʼn paar ander komponente bevat.  Potent goede of goodness. Onder andere fulvicsuur.

Ek is nog nie klaar nie. Wat ek wel weet is dat die brousel van my jou ‘n minuut of wat later springlewendig en vrolik het. Marathon gereed. Slaap skoon weg. Binne enkele minute. Wil nog die ding verder bedink.

Binnekort kom ons Kefir wat ons van wei gaan maak.

Al my masjiene het gister gekom. Die het ek ook goed bestudeer. Daaroor vertel ek julle later.

Hier is ‘n kort opsomming van wat in hierdie kambucha van ons is.

En nee, net by fabriek beskikbaar. Ek produseer nog te min.

Kombucha is a fermented tea rich in beneficial probiotics. It contains as a natural product, antioxidants, that can fight many diseases naturally as well as killing harmful bacteria. The fermentation process produces acetic acid (also found in vinegar) and several other acidic compounds.

It contains several species of lactic-acid bacteria with probiotic function that supports gut health including digestion, inflammation and even weight loss. Literature has it that obesity is linked to inflammation in the brain.

Green tea in this product contains many bioactive compounds. Fermented green tea contains polyphenols which function as powerful antioxidant. It is known for reducing belly fat, improve cholesterol levels and helps with blood sugar control. Green tea also reduces the risk of prostate, breast and colon cancers.

Kombucha through its antioxidant activity reduces liver toxicity caused by toxic chemicals.

Kombucha contains acetic acid, which is also abundant in vinegar. Like polyphenols, acetic acid s to kill many bacteria species including candida yeasts without suppressing beneficial bacteria.

Kambucha greatly improves two markers of heart disease, bad LDL and good HDL cholesterol.

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance. Kambucha slows the digestion of carbs, which in return reduce blood sugar levels and improve liver and kidney functions.

Kambucha has great anticancer properties.

Zink en die Corona Virusse


Zink, en die Corona Virus


Die skrywe is gelaai met skakels in die Literatuur. Klink gerus daarop om die verwysende Literatuur ook te bestudeer. 

Die skrywe is gedoen om ‘n hele belangrike klomp inligting maklik te verduidelik. Vir die gewone mens wat in vrees is. 

Die skrywe is bedoel om te bewys dat daar wel ‘n uitweg is en natuurlike maniere om die Corona-virus hand en tand en met als wat ons het te beveg. Duur medikasie (wat nie daar is nie, en entstowwe, wat ook nie bestaan nie, kan niemand van ons nou help nie.

Voeding en natuurlike produkte kan. Hierdie is ‘n beskeie poging om mense hoop te gee, wapens om mee te veg, ondersteuning, kennis om die mens se natuurlike vermoëns in sy persoonlike immuunstelsel te versterk en die siektes van vernietiging van buite, in hulle spore te stop.

Ek hoop hierdie beteken vir julle iets en ek hoop werklik dit help en red mense se lewens.

Pierre @ Ecohealth se hele gesondheidsdefinisie fokus op goeie kos, min stres en die Immuunstelsel. Ons is trots daarop om naas ander produkte van voeding in kankerwerende neutraseutikels, ook produkte het wat hierdie Corona bedreiging in sy voetspore te kan stop.

Al waarop ons, die mens nou kan staatmaak is natuurlike voeding.

Daar is nie ander hulpmiddels nie. En ‘n versterkte Immuunsisteem.


Drie van ons uitsonderlike produkte wat kan help, is die volgende;

  1. Kolostrum
  2. Fulvic Suur
  3. Hippie Shake

Kolostrum (Artikel 1, Artikel 2, Artikel 3, Artikel 4)

Klik op hierdie en ander skakels om meer bewyse te kry oor die algehele waarde van kolostrum.

Die Corona virus moet nie net met een faktor in voeding beveg word, naamlik zinc nie, maar met voeding algeheel.


Kolostrum, (kyk skakel) bevat ongeveer 4 keer meer zinc as gewone melk.

Kolostrum (kyk skakel) oor ‘n tyd geneem, het in die studies bewys dat dit tot 3 keer meer effektief is as ‘n entstof teen griep en ander virusse. En zink in kolostrum is 100% opneembaar in die liggaam. Kolostrum kan dus aangeneem word, kan met al sy kwaliteite as ‘n ionofoor

  1. Fulvic Suur: (Artikel 1), Artikel 2, Artikel 3)

Die waarde en vermoë wat fulvic suur het om zink weens sy molekulêre struktuur, wat zink as mineraal vir die liggaam se selle natuurlik beskikbaar stel en oor alle grense van beperking, zinc as mineraal in selle deponeer.

Fulvic suur doen veel meer om virusse en bakterie se voortbestaan in dierlike selle te inhibeer, soos die studies en skrywes bewys.


  1. Ons Hippie Shake, wat ongeveer 10 mg zink bevat, met ‘n volledige maaltyd se nodige minerale en vitamiene. Saamgestel deur dieetkundiges wat kollageen en kolostrum ook bevat met ionofore. 


Die rol van Ionofore

Word later in die skrywe verduidelik. Maar, dit is ons kritieke faktor om zinc in ons liggaam se selle te kry.

In kort is ionofore die voertuig wat minerale soos zink van buite die sel inneem, omdat dit op molekulêre vlak met die mineraal (zink) kan verbind en sodoende binne in die sel vervoer, waar zink sy funksies tot selgesondheid kan uitvoer.

Ionofore bind aan ione, onder andere Zink, van buite die selwant en neem dit in die sel in. Hierdie ‘n ‘n belangrike begrip, wat nou-nou meer duidelik gaan word oor hoekom.


Zink as mineraal

Zink is ‘n essensiële komponent in ‘n groot groep ensieme (300 +) wat betrokke is by die afbreek en metabolisering van stysels, proteïene, lipiede en sure, asook ander mikronutriënte.  Zink stabiliseer die molekulêre struktuur van selkomponente en membrane.

Zink dra ook by tot die instandhouding van selle se natuurlike biologiese funksies, oorsprong en voorkoms.


Zink speel ‘n belangrike rol in die immuunsisteem, waar dit ‘n verskeie funksies en aspekte van

  • sellulêre en
  • humorale immuniteite.
  1. Zink-tekorte
  2. Kliniese tekorte van Zink in die liggaam dra by tot verswakte en stadige fisiese liggaamlike ontwikkeling van mens en dier.

Tekorte aan zink dra verder by tot;

  • Verswakte seksuele ontwikkeling en seksuele uithouvermoë, asook lae vrugbaarheid
  • Onderontwikkelde beenvorming en ontwikkeling
  • Wonde wat nie heel nie
  • Diarree
  • Swak eetlus en onder ontwikkelende of verswakte smaak ervaring
  • Verhoogde vatbaarheid vir vel en ander infeksies, aknee en psioriasis
  • Afwykende gedrag



Humorale Immuniteit

Zink se suksesvolle opname in selle, bevorder die immuunstelsel se selreaksies en daarby die vermoë om vreemde organismes te erken, en prosesse in werking stel om die vreemde voorwerpe te elimineer.

In “vermoë” word bedoel, die stimulering en aktivering van B-limfosiete in die immuunstelsel, wat teenliggaampies teen daardie spesifieke antigeen (die vreemde organismes) produseer.

Hierdie B-Limfosiete word vervaardig met unieke en spesifieke reseptore doelgerig vir die spesifieke antigeen waarmee dit in aanraking kom. Bekende reaksies is teen die gevaarlike Streptococcus en Staphylococcus bakterie.

Zink speel egter belangrike verdedigingsrolle by kanker en nou soos die skrywe ten doel het, die Corona Virus

Limfosiete word vir die doel van hierdie skrywe in 2-groepe kortliks beskrywe.

  • B-Limfosiete
  • T-selle

images (1)

B-limfosiete produseer dus selle wat;

  • Pasmaak teenliggaampies produseer vir spesifieke antigene. (Skadelike bakterie, virusse, fungi)
  • Ontwikkel ook ‘n geheue wat die liggaam in staat stel om onmiddellik weer teenliggaampies te produseer, met die verskyning van , sou die antigeen weer sy verskyning later maak.
  • B-limfosiete word gestimuleer deur “Interleukin-2” (IL-2), ‘n sitokien-molekule van die immuunstelsel, wat beskou word as ‘n skakelaar van die sel, (cell signaling) wat witbloedliggaampies stimuleer en reguleer om die immuunstelsel fiks en paraat te hou vir enige vreemde organismes.
  • Interleukin-2” (IL-2) of sitokien-molekules word afgeskei deur CD4+ T selle, wat as helper selle beskou word omdat hul die liggaam se immuunrespons aktiveer. Helper selle neutraliseer nie infeksies nie, maar stimuleer die liggaam se reaksie tot vreemde organismes.



Zink speel in al die gevalle soos bo genoem ‘n aktiewe rol.

Dit kan met veiligheid aanvaar word dat zink op een of ander manier in alle vorme van lewe betrokke is, wat beteken dat Zink ‘n kritiese rol speel in die prosesse van hoe selle hulself geneties uitdruk, repliseer en teen eksterne faktore beskerm.

Teenliggaampies deur B-limfosiete geproduseer.

Dit word gevind in bloed, milt en limfnodes waar dit antigene (virus en bakterie) op verskeie maniere vernietig. Hul elimineer ook die skadelike toksienes afgeskei wat deur bakterie afgeskei word.


Die metodes wat B-limfosiete gebruik is;

  • Opsonization”, ‘n proses waar patogene gemerk word om verteer te word deur fagosiete.
  • Fagositose of “phagocytosis” is die vertering en vreet vreemde materiaal deur fagosiete
  • Agglutination” of die saambind van groepe selle en
  • Voorkom dat die antigeen (bakterie en virusse) aan die gasheer se selle kan heg.


Is die tweede belangrike selgroep in die breë kategorieë  van Limfosiete .


Daar is verskeie sub-tipe T-selle van belang.

  • Sitotoksiese T-selle (CD8+ T-selle) wat tumors en kankers bestry, asook selle wat virusse bevat
  • Helper T-selle, (CD4+T-selle) wat die immuunrespons aktiveer
  • NTK-selle (Natural Killer Cells)
  • Regulatoriese T-selle, ook verwys na (Suppressor T-cells) wat ‘n subafdeling CD4+ T-selle is wat fokus om die immuunstelsel verdraagsaam te maak teen infektiewe agente, soos by vroue wat verwagtend raak, kanker, orgaanoorplantings, ens.


Die opname van zink

Video: Corona virus en die verhoogde opname van Zink (Medcram Publikasies)

Bogenoemde video beskrywe belangrike bevindinge asook navorsing vanuit Suid Korea,  een van die lande met die hoogste Corona-viruss besmetting, maar met die laagste stertesyfer.

Dit het opsommend als te doen met die mineraal  Zink Zn2+

Die toetse en evaluering het bevind dat die versameling zink- ionofore die reproduksie van die Corona virus aktief beperk en sy aanwas binne die sel verhoed.

Hier is verwysende Literatuur tot die bewering

  1. Studie 1.
  2. Studie 2
  3. Studie 3

Verhoogde Zink Zn2+ Konsentrasies

Zink as mineraal is ‘n ioon. Dit bind en penetreer ‘n sel nie geredelik nie.

Die video verduidelik in kort dat Zink (Zn2+ molekule) ‘n ionofoor benodig om die  in die sel opgeneem te word.

Zink vermeerdering is nodig om die aanwas van virusse, (dus die RNA duplisering van die virus) in die sel, te inhibeer en selfs te voorkom.

unnamed (1)

Dit is aanvanklik moeilik om te verstaan, omdat mense wat nie blootgestel was aan Molekulêre Biologie nie, die begrippe onbekend gaan vind.

Mense wat wel die video deursien, sal wel begryp watter rol die positiewe zink (Zn2+) molekules speel by opname van die mineraal in die sel. Ook watter belangrike rol ionofore as voertuig speel om Zinc biologies in die sel in te neem om die Corona en ander virusse te inhibeer.


Begrip hiervoor sal verduidelik en bewys dat genoegsame zink-inname die Corona -virus se skade kan beperk en inhibeer.

Wat staan ons almal nou te doen, met die krisis op hande.

Daar is verskeie goed wat ons nou moet doen. Ons gaan almal iewers aan die virus blootgestel word. Ons het geen immuuniteit daarteen nie en ons het ook nie meikasie daarvoor nie. Dit is die nuwe norm en ons gaan vir altyd aan die virus blootgestel wees, sonder immuuniteit.

  1. Ons moet ons immuunstelsels voed en opbou en instand hou.
  2. Met goeie kos, kolostrum en Fulvic suur
  3. Ons moet sorg dat ons meer Zinc as mineraal natuurlik opneem om die Corona virus natuurlik te beveg en voorkom dat dit in die selle kan vermeerder.


Om dit te doen is dit dalk belangrik om te verseker dat ons

  1. Vry is van parasiete soos wurms
  2. Nie hardlywig is nie
  3. Probiotika. Oorweeg produkte soos kefir, kambucha (met ‘n enorme Vitamien B inhoud) en ander goeie probiotika, soos deur ons reeks voorgestel
  4. Genoegsaam slaap van tussen 7-8 ure.
  5. Ons pH balanse in takt is. Ons slymvliese klam en versorg is (Oë, neus, mond, en vaginaal veral by vroue), want dit is ons eerste linie van verdediging. Maagsuur se pH van 7.2. Oorweeg organiese appelasyn, 15 ml in die oggend en aand.
  6. Lewer en niere. Genoegsame skoon water inneem sodat ons niere en lewer die toksiese stowwe kan ontgif en uitspoel. Oorweeg deurlopend deur die dag, gerasperde suurlemoen met die skil en al gemeng met drinkwater. Oorweeg 30 ml water vir elke 10 kg gewig.
  7. Stres onderdruk, waar ‘n produk soos ons Tulsi (Holy basil) baie kan bydrae met die onderdrukking van kortisolproduksie van die byniere.
  8. Lees hier oor kroniese stres en kanker (Artikel 1, Artikel 2, Artikel 3)
  9. Inflammasie onderdruk, nog voordat dit wil ontstaan, diep en effektief te stop met Curcumin Plus (Artikel 1, Artikel 2, Artikel 3). Veral omdat die Corona virus boonste lugweginfeksies veroorsaak
  10. Maak seker van magnesiumopname, nie net inname nie
  11. Oorweeg om 1 x ‘n week jou hele liggaam te detoks met geaktiveerde houtskool.
  12. Goeie voeding inneem, veral voedselsoorte wat ons weet veral zinc in het. Produkte soos pampoenpitte is baie hoog in zink.
  13. Skakel 1 : Beste voedselsoorte in Zink
  14. Skakel 2 : Zink tekorte in die liggaam
  15. Skakel 3 : Te veel zink
  16. Skakel 4 : Als oor zink
  17. Oorweeg goeie gebruike van ons Virus Gobbler. Hier is die redes daartoe
  18. Selmetabolisme. Oorweeg ons “Spice Mieks” mengsel, omdat ons ‘n reeks kruie daarin het wat die sel metabolisme verhoog. Dit is ‘n kritiese komponent en reaksie van die immuunsisteem wat ‘n ligte sweet reaksie veroorsaak, maar sel-aktiwiteite en metabolisme verhoog en dus zink intrek en metaboliseer om as verdedigingsmeganisme te funksioneer.

Gordelroos of “Shingles”


Dit is die herpesvirus (varicella zoster) wat gordelroos veroorsaak. Dit is ‘n hoogs aansteeklike virus wat ook waterpokkies veroorsaak.


Persone wat gordelroos het, kan ’n ander persoon onbewustelik met die virus aansteek,  wat in waterpokkies sal resulteer.

Die virus kan  met direkte blootstelling ander mense besmet, wat dit weer aan kinders en verwagtende vroue onbewustelik kan oordra.

Om gordelroos te kan kry, moet ’n mens iewers voorheen met die virus besmet geraak het en waterpokkies ontwikkel het.


Nadat ’n mens waterpokkies opgedoen het, bly die virus subklinies in die liggaam. Die immuunstelsel raak nie heeltemal van die varicella-zoster-virus ontslae nie. Die immuunstelsel bou net teenliggaampies op wat die virus natuurlik onderdruk.

‘n Gesonde fikste immuunstelsel sorg dat daar geen tekens van die virus sigbaar is nie. Die virus is egter nie dood of weg nie.


Die virus versteek homself iewers in die liggaam se senuweesentrum. Dit word ook onderdruk deur die immuunstelsel. Daar wag die sluimerende virus vir die ideale omstandighede om te ontstaan, wat deur stresvolle omstandighede veroorsaak word.

Ideale omstandighede vir virusse, bakterie en fungi, is al die redes tot ‘n verswakte immuunstelsel.

Uitdagende stresvolle omstandighede sal die immuunstelsel se verdedigingsmeganismes verswak. Dit gee die virus kans om die immuunstelsel se verdedigingsmeganismes te oorkom, die oorhand oor die immuunstelsel se verdediging te neem en, die liggaam met mening aan te val.

Persone wie se immuunstelsel onderdruk is weens stres, voedingstekorte of siektes is die meeste vatbaar om gordelroos op te doen.

Kolostrum is Moeder Natuur se belangrikste wapen in die totale voeding en ontwikkeling asook herstel van die immuunstelsel.

Vir kinders, ook vir volwassenes in ‘n stresvolle werksomgewing en veral vir verswakte bejaardes


Mense oor die ouderdom van 50

Is die meeste vatbaar vir die virus. Gordelroos, soos genoem, slaan toe ná ’n tydperk van kwaai siekte, buitengewone stres, langdurige moegheid of traumas van soorte. Dit kan ook volg na chemoterapie, bestraling of ander prosedures wat die immuunstelsel ondermyn en of aktief verswak.

Gordelroos sal pyn en baie ongemak veroorsaak.

Dit is egter nie lewensgevaarlik nie. Die siektetoestand duur sowat 7-10 dae. Die nagevolge daarvan op die vel kan egter maande duur, waar spierpyne en ongemak aanhoudend mag voorkom.

Magnesiumtekorte word ook geassosieer met spierpyne en krampe. Bestuur veral magnesiumvlakke in die tyd aktief.


Die beste bestuur vir gordelroos

  • Is die voorkoming van stres, (die gebruik van ons Tulsi)
  • Die voed van die liggaam met kolostrum, probiotika en kollageen.
  • Gesonde dieet en genoeg oefening
  • Aanvullings soos “bone broth” of kragtige murgsop is baie waardevol.
  • Aktiewe opname van genoegsame magnesium (50:50 engelsesout en aqueousroom gemeng) sal baie verligting bring.

Kolostrum en ander produkte

Die liggaam moet die verskuilde virus onderdruk met die aktiewe suksesvolle ontwikkeling van teenliggaampies teen die virus.

Hierdie aktiwiteit van die immuunstelsel moet voortdurend gevoed en onderhou word met kolostrum, kollageen en probiotika. Die sigbare wonde op die vel kan weke duur om te genees. Weereens, afhangende van hoe die wonde bestuur word, kan dit ook permanente skade op die vel laat.

Kanker en Curcumin Plus ³ met Piperine



Pierre @ Ecohealth het ‘n samestelling van Curcumin en Piperine (Biopiperine) met ander natuurlike produkte om die werkinge en die aktiewe daarin te verhoog, as ‘n eie poging om naaste mense in eie familie te help veg teen kanker.

‘n Stryd wat met als in ons menslike vermoë geveg en uitgeveg gaan word. Met als wat beskikbaar is in die Literatuur wat kan help met en teen die stryd met kanker.

Hierdie skrywe word hier gedeel met die geloof dat dit ook vir ander veel kan beteken. Al lees hul dit net. Hoop kan bring en miskien tog die kans gee om kanker bloedneus te slaan.

Die skrywe het ook ten doel om lesers te inspireer om te oorweeg om die produk, wat poog om kanker en ander verwante siektes voorkomend te beheer, te oorweeg. Laastens, dit is nie medikasie nie. Dit vervang nie jou dokter of enige spesialiste in die mediese beroepe nie.

Dit is net ‘n doodgewone man se poging en bydrae om antwoorde in die Literatuur te vind. En hierdie skrywe is sy bevindinge.


Die rol van curcumin en piperine in die stryd teen kanker word kortliks in die algemeen bespreek.

Afdeling I: Kanker en Curcumin Plus³

Kanker word wêreldwyd as een van die grootste oorsake van sterftes beskou. En dit is steeds stygend in vele vorme. Studies bewys dat mense wat meer groente en vrugte eet, meer bioaktiewe minerale en spoorelemente inneem, (flavonoïede) wat vrye radikale in die liggaam teenwerk.


Organiese groente en vrugte het vele bio-voorkomende eienskappe, wat anti-oksidante is wat die liggaam teen oksidasie en ander vernietigende biochemiese prosesse teenwerk en ‘n belangrike bydrae lewer teen die vorming van kanker en ander soorte van siektes.

Oksidering of “Oxidative stress” van selle, kan in kort beskrywe word as ‘n wanbalans tussen vrye radikale en anti-oksidante in die liggaam.

Vrye radikale is molekules wat ‘n aggressiewe suurstofmolekule bevat en so definieer word omdat hul ook ‘n oneweredige balans van elektrone molekulêr besit. Die oneweredigheid van elektrone veroorsaak dat die molekules doelbewus met ander molekules se magnetiese velde wil verbind, wat ‘n ketting van verskeie skadelike chemiese reaksies kan veroorsaak.


Antioksidante op hul beurt weer skenk molekules sonder om onstabiel te raak.

Dit bring mee dat wanneer dit met die magnetiese lading van vrye radikale verbind, dit die vrye radikaal stabiliseer. Wanneer daar meer vrye radikale teenwoordig is as wat in balans gehou kan word deur antioksidante, ontstaan die toestand oksidatiewe stres.


Vrye radikale het ten doel om die DNA van ‘n sel te verander. Of dit geneties te muteer. Die seldeling (mutasie) wat so plaasvind, veroorsaak seldeling in ‘n ongewensde vorm wat skadelike veranderings aan die DNA, weefsel en proteïene in selle veroorsaak.

Die wanbalans tussen antioksidante en vrye radikale kan lei tot siektes soos;

Tumors en Bioflavonoïede

‘n Tumor is ‘n versameling versteurde selle, wat waarskynlik weens oksidatiewe stres en vrye radikale ‘n ongewensde massa vorm weens ongewensde seldeling.

Normaalweg het selle ‘n beperkte  leeftyd en is dit ‘n normale biologiese funksie om na daardie leeftyd af te sterf. Selle word daarna natuurlik deur die immuunstelsel met nuwes vervang.


Wanneer afsterwing van die selle nie natuurlik plaasvind weens ‘n verandering van die DNA of genetiese mutasie, moontlik veroorsaak deur oksidatiewe stres en of vrye radikale, kan ‘n tumor vorm.

images (1).png

Die inname van antioksidante en of flavonoïede in die dieet voorkom die genetiese mutasie van die DNA. Flavonoïede neutraliseer vrye radikale aktief wat karsinome kan vorm. Flavonoïede se doel by inname is om die liggaam/selle te “ontgif” en te detoksifiseer.

Curcumin en piperine se kankerwerende potensiaal

Literatuur bewys dat curcumin, die bio-aktief in borrie, dosis-afhanklike natuurlike kanker-voorkomende eienskappe bevat.


  1. Curcumin het die vermoë om die onwillekeurige groei van selle (proliferasie) te inhibeer en in sommige gevalle heeltemal te stop.
  2. Curcumin het ook volgens die Literatuur verskeie anti-kankervormende of anti-karsinogeniese eienskappe
  3. Curcumin stimuleer ook die geprogrammeerde afsterwe van kankerselle, ook genoem “apoptose.”
  4. Die ander manier waarop selle afsterwe word nekrose genoem. Dit is wanneer selle ontydig afsterwe weens eksterne faktore soos vergiftiging en beserings wat in septiese wonde, wat “nekrose” genoem word, ontaard. Curcumin het ook hier ‘n belangrike rol te speel.

  1. Curcumin inhibeer en verhoed ook die vorming van selsiklusse van kanker, waar sitoplasma en die DNA van die kankersel hulself verdeel om nuwe dogterselle te vorm.
  2. Curcumin speel ‘n belangrike rol in biologiese roetes (biological pathways) waar dit aktief betrokke is by ‘n proses wat “oncogene expression” genoem word.
  3. Curcumin voorkom aktief dat normale selle verander en in kankeragtige selle
  4. Curcumin verhoed ook dat “mutagenesis” plaasvind, waar vrye radikale poog om die DNA van ‘n sel se natuurlike karakter te verander.


  1. Curcumin verhoed metastasis, die proses waar kanker skielik in die liggaam begin versprei en op ander plekke van die liggaam voorkom, weg van die oorsprong.
  2. Curcumin se aktiewe voorkom ook die ontstaan van kankergewasse (tumorigenesis)


  1. Curcumin onderdruk die volgende belangrike transkripsie-faktore;
    1. NF-B
    2. Bcl-2
    3. COX-2
    4. c-myc
    5. Cyclin D1
    6. NOS, ens.
    7. Interleukins MMP-9 en TNF-a waar dit die reseptore van die glukoproteïen ontwrig waar selhegting sou plaasvind
  2. Curcumin voorkom metastasis, waar die kanker na ander dele van die liggaam versprei.

  1. Curcumin verhoed die vorming van nuwe bloedvate by kankerselle. (angiogenesis)


  1. Curcumin het “anti-tumor potensiaal” wat selsiklusse of Cyclin-dependant kinases, CDK’s ontwrig.
  2. CDK’s reguleer selsiklusse wat transkripsie faktore insluit en voorkom dat gene in die DNA dupliseer.

Afdeling II

Bio-beskikbaarheid van Curcumin in die liggaam

Navorsing beskrywe in vele artikels die potensiële waarde van curcumin in kanker, artritis, diabetes en ander siektes. Curcumin se biologiese beskikbaarheid, m.a.w. die opneembaarheid van die produk in die liggaam, is baie laag.

Metaboliese faktore wat opname beïnvloed

Daar is vele metaboliese prosesse in die menslike liggaam.  Die bio-opneembaarheid van curcumin word deur verskillende metaboliese prosesse in die liggaam verhoed

  • P-glukoproteïene


  • Metaboliese ensieme
  • Dermvermoë en absorpsie
  • Temperatuur styging/verhoging weens voedsel of “Thermogenesis


Metabolisasie van curcumin

Die metabolisasie van curcumin kan gedefinieer word as die tempo waar curcumin se terapeutiese waardes en aktiewe elemente voldoende vrygestel word deur die spysverteringstelsel om spesifieke molekulêre teikens, soos kankerselle of tumors in die liggaam, te teiken.

Medikasie, natuurlike voeding en nutriënte in minerale en vitamienes ondergaan almal verskeie metaboliese prosesse in die ingewande met verskeie absorpsie-profiele.

Modulasie vermoëns van die P-glukoproteïen

P-glukoproteïen is deel van die superfamilie, die ATP-verbindingsgroep van transporteerders, wat deel is van die “multi-drug” weerstandigheidsgeen, MDRI (ABCB1) wat in mense voorkom.

P-glukoproteïen word in dermwande se epiteelweefsel ook gevind, waar dit as “beskermingsproteïen” funksioneer. P-gp sou dus die opname van curcumin kon verhoed en hierdie werking moet dus omgekeer word sodat curcumin se biologiese en terapeutiese waardes opgeneem kan word.

Die funksies van die P-gp

  • P-gp verhoed die opname van toksiese molekules van die eksterne omgewing en wat ook al geëet of ingeneem word in die dieet.
  • P-gp dra ook by die uitskeiding van toksiese stowwe deur die lewer, niere en gal.
  • P-gp het dus in sy aard en funksie die vermoë om die absorpsie van medikasie en voeding te blokkeer en te verhoed.

Die P-gp funksie in die spysverteringskanaal voorkom dus dat medikasie en nutriënte wat die behandeling van kanker en artritis, kan aanspreek, aktief blokkeer word.

Die P-gp funksies moet dus gemoduleer word sodat die aktief van medikasie en nutriënte genoegsaam vrygestel kan word om molekulêre teikens van byvoorbeeld kanker te kan bereik.

Piperine, bewys die Literatuur inhibeer P-glukoproteïen se blokkeringsvermoë en sellulêre uitdrukking en funksie,  sodat curcumin se terapeutiese waardes in die spysverteringstelsel opgeneem kan word.

  1. Modulering van metaboliese ensieme

Die modulering van metaboliese ensieme en nutriënte is nodig om die metabolisasie van medikasie en nutriënte te laat plaasvind. Metabolisasie kan binne of buite die liggaam plaasvind.

Metabolisasie is die proses waar medikasie en voeding nutriënte biotransformeer, en sekere elemente van medikasie en voeding chemies biotransformeer om meer bio-opneembaar te wees vir die liggaam.

Piperine as moduleringsagent is hoogs suksesvol hierin, omdat die vermoë van die dunderm ontsluit om belangrike ensiemverwante aktiwiteite te moduleer. ‘n Proses van “glucoronidation” vind dan plaas.

Dit is ‘n metaboliese proses waar medikasie en ander nutriënte aan ‘n suur verbind, “glucoronic acid” om medikasie en nutriënte om te skakel in ‘n meer wateroplosbare substansie, wat makliker opgeneem word in die selle en ook makliker deur die lewer en niere uitgeskei word.

‘n Voorbeeld: Curcumin is sitotoksies.

Soos genoem is dit het curcumin die potensiaal en chemiese eienskappe om te verhoed dat tumorselle ontwikkel en te groei in die liggaam

Piperine as bio-agent word gebruik om die metaboliese ensieme in die liggaam te moduleer om die farmakologiese kwaliteite van curcumin in die liggaam te metaboliseer. Dit sal die plasmavlakke van die terapeutiese van curcumin in die liggaam verhoog. Die verhoogde plasmavlakke sal dan aktief tumorselle se ontwikkeling verhoed en beperk, hul oorlewing in te kort en tumorselle se selfunksies te inhibeer.

“Piperine is thought to be inhibiting glucuronidation, a process by which the human body eliminates various xenobiotics from the body, by inhibiting enzymes like UDP-glucose dehydrogenase and UDP-glucoronosyl transferase, and in turn lowering levels of endogenous glucuronic acid.”   

  1. Verhoogde intestinale absorpsie

Vir medikasie en nutriënte om deur die wande van die ingewande in die sistemiese sirkulasie van die liggaam absorbeer te word, (permeability) moet dit in die regte molekulêre struktuur metaboliseer word, voordat dit deur die epiteelselle van die dermwande asook die interne mukus kan beweeg.

Daar is vele anatomiese en interne biologiese grense, of “barriers” van beskerming wat nutriënte en medikasie  verhoed om opgeneem te word.

Verskeie absorpsie-roetes  of “pathways” in die liggaam speel ‘n belangrike rol om medikasie en nutriënte wat nie normaalweg vrylik opgeneem word nie, wel in die liggaam opgeneem te kry. Piperine is een van die erkende bio-versterkers in die Literatuur. Piperine moduleer verskeie produkte se farmakologiese werkinge omdat piperine selmembrane in die spysverteringstelsel natuurlik kan moduleer.

  1. Thermogenesis” of “Temperatuurproduksie” van selle

Een van die belangrikste vraagstukke vandag is die waarde van die voeding en die bio-opneembaarheid daarvan en die hoeveelheid nutriënte wat deur ‘n dieet ingeneem word. Vele vrae ontstaan oor die voedingswaarde van masse geproduseerde voedsel, en of dit werklik as voeding in die liggaam opgeneem word.

Daarteenoor neem vele mense goeie en heilsame voeding in. Die vraag word soms gevra of die individu se liggaam werklik die nut van goeie voedsel inkry en is die metaboliese faktore in die liggaam instaat om wel die nut van heilsame voedsel op te neem?

Vele speserye bring ‘n tinteling soos rooipeper en piperine bring ‘n sensasie op die tong en later in die lyf mee. Kerrie en ander disse wek ‘n warm gevoel op soms selfs sweet. Die verskynsel is ‘n manifestasie van ‘n biologiese aktiwiteite van phyto-chemiese eienskappe wat in verskillende voedsel en kruie opgesluit is, wat ‘n temperatuurstyging in die liggaam meebring.

Dit is ‘n teken dat digestie of die verteringsproses van die liggaam, aan die gang is. Die brandervaring en gevoel van warmte nie sou nie ervaar word as die digestie en verteringsproses nie plaasgevind het nie.

Piperine verhoog die funksies van hormone wat deur die skildklier afgeskei word. Piperine het ook ‘n invloed op ander neurotransmitters wat ook deel is van termogenese proses in die liggaam.


Hierdie skrywe en sy Literatuurverwysings lewer moontlike bewyse dat daar wel in natuurlike produkte potensiaal bestaan om kanker en ander siektes te bestry.

Daar is ook ander rolspelers by betrokke, soos stres en inflammasie asook oormatige produksie van kortisol wat belangrike rolspelers is. Dit kan later beskrywe word. Daarom is die skrywe onvolledig.

Klem word in die skrywe gelê op die potensiaal van curcumin, as bio-aktief en die potensiaal wat piperine as sinergis het om wel curcumin se farmakologiese werkinge te ontsluit om kanker te bestry.

Kanker en Curcumin: Deel 2.


Daar is n paar produkte in die Literatuur wat kankerwerende eienskappe bevat. Dit is waarskynlik beter om dit te beskrywe, dat dit kankergenesende eienskappe bevat wat voorkomend gebruik moet word.

Die produk wat hier beskrywe word, is Curcumin. Die aktief in borrie. Met hul bio-opneembare uitdagings en voordele.


Die effektiwiteit, die veilige farmakologiese waarde van curcuminoïede noop mens om die potensiaal te kyk van curcumin as hulpmiddel teen kanker, as anti-oksidant en die ander waardes wat dit as natuurlike plant en middel mag hê teen verskeie siektes.

Die gebruik van borrie, (curcumin is die aktiewe bestanddeel in borrie) word al eeue lank gebruik in die Ayurveda gebruike. In die moderne era is daar vele belangrike studies in die Literatuur wat fokus op die aktief in borrie, naamlik “Curcumin” gedoen.

Borrie word onttrek uit die wortel van die plant “Curcuma longa.” Borrie en of die aktief, curcumin word  nie geredelik deur die liggaam opgeneem nie.

Die waarde van curcumin moet met ‘n “sleutel” in die Biologie vir die liggaam ontsluit word. Hierdie “sleutels” is sekere tipes van vette en olies en enkele alkohole. Waarskynlik is die belangrike “sleutel” is die aktief wat binne swartpeper gevind word, naamlik “Piperine.”

Die aktiewe komponent Curcumin.

Literatuur bevind dat curcumin bepaalde werkinge en of uitkomste het in verskeie belangrike biologiese gebeure in die liggaam. Curcumin se chemiese funksie fokus op “molekulêre teikens,” wat veral vir menslike en dierlike gesondheid belangrik is om te kan inhibeer of dit te moduleer, veral wanneer gevreesde siektes ‘n rol speel.

images (1)

Curcumin inhibeer/onderdruk/verander/moduleer die “transkripsie faktore” wat die selgroei van die volgende siektetoestande bevorder.

  • Kanker
  • Artritis
  • Diabetes
  • Hart en hartvatsiektes
  • Crohn se siekte
  • Osteoporose
  • Alzheimers
  • Velkondisies soos psoriase, ens.

Wat is ‘n “Transkripsie Faktor?”

  • Vele molekules of familie van molekules tree op as transkripsie faktore.
  • Transkripsie Faktore word in elke sel van die liggaam gevind.
  • Transkripsie faktore is ook verskillend in verskillende selle.
  • Transkripsie faktore het in die verskillende fases in die ontwikkeling van selle ‘n veranderlike aard en karakter.
  • Transkripsies faktore reguleer ook die boodskappe wat deur die geen in ‘n sel produseer word.

Transkripsie faktore is proteïene wat bind aan spesifieke gene van ‘n sel se DNA. Dit bind veral aan die “promotors” van die sel se funksie, wat dan skadelike funksies kan promoveer. ‘n Promotor is “aktiveerders” in die sel wat funksies van die sel bevorder.


Verskillende transkripsie faktore is verantwoordelik vir die patrone of die biologiese uitdrukking van spesifieke gene in selle. Transkripsie faktore is verantwoordelik vir die aktivering van die veranderlike gedrag van gene wat in selle mag plaasvind.

Enkeles is;

  • Cycloxygenases of COX COX2, 5-LOX, iNOS
  • Hemeoxygenase-1.”
  • Selproteïne soos Cyclin D1 and p21
  • Cytokines soos TNF, IL-1, IL-6
  • Chemokines
  • Reseptore soos EGFR, HER2 en,
  • Sel oppervlak molekules of “cell adhesion molecules.”

Transkripsie Faktor 1: NF-κB (Nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells)


Die NF-κB faktor word in alle tipes selle van mens en dier gevind en, is betrokke by selreaksies wat gestimuleer word deur

  • Stres
  • Sitokinese
  • Vrye radikale
  • Swaarmetale,
  • Ultravioletstraling en irradiasie.
  • Die NF-κB faktor speel ‘n sleutel rol by die regulering van die immuunrespons by infeksies en soorte van inflammasie.

Die verkeerde regulering van die NF-κB faktor in die liggaam word gekoppel aan kanker, inflammatoriese asook outo-immuunsiektes, septiese skok, virale infeksies asook verswakte immuun-ontwikkeling.  Die NF-κB faktor word ook verbind aan verswakte senuweefunksies,  algemene spierverswakking en ook geheueverlies.

Die NF-κB faktor word ook impliseer by skadelike cholesterol wat vorm waar die vorming van gesonde LDL cholesterol beskadig word deur chemiese blootstelling waar vrye radikale induseer word. Die NF-κB faktor word ook geïmpliseer by die skadelike uitwerking van skadelike bakterie en virale antigene.

Transkripsie Faktor 2: (AP-1) of “Aktivering Proteïen 1.”

Aktivering proteïen 1 is ook ‘n transkripsie faktor wat “ geen-uitdrukking” reguleer (hoe gene in die sel reageer) in reaksie van bepaalde stimuli of oorsake, wat ook stres, sitokinese, vrye radikale, swaarmetale, bakteriese en virale antigene insluit.



AP-1 reguleer ook selprosesse soos

  • differensiasie (wanneer ‘n sel van een tipe sel na ‘n ander verander)
  • proliferasie ( waar ‘n moedersel verdeel en twee dogterselle produseer
  • apoptose (geprogrammeerde selsterftes plaasvind).

Transkripsie Faktor 3: Egr-1 of “Vroeë Groei Reaksie.”


  • EGR-1 word as ‘n Early growth response” proteïen beskrywe. Ook bekend as Zif268 (zinc finger protein 225) of NGFI-A (nerve growth factor-induced protein A).


Transkripsie Faktor 4: Katene (Catenin)


  • Katene is ‘n groep proteïene wat normaalweg die skakeling tussen selle bevorder en bepaalde funksies uitvoer soos om spesifieke selverbindings mee te bring.
  • Dieselfde faktore wat ‘n rol speel in normale funksionering van selle en hul normale biologiese funksies, soos die afsterwe van selle, die handhawing of balans (homeostase),  herstel en ook groei van selle, dieselfde faktore kan in ‘n negatiewe sin dieselfde rol en funksie vervul by abnormale selgedrag, soos by die vorming van tumors.

Transkripsie Faktor 5: “Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor” of PPAR

PPAR het verskeie metaboliese funksies in selle en behoort aan ‘n groep van proteïene wat ook estrogeen, Vitamien D, en die hormone van die skildklier insluit. Die familie van PPAR’s  word verteenwoordig deur drie lede, naamlik PPAR-α, PPAR-δ, and PPAR-γ.


Dit het ‘n komplekse en ook wye verskeidenheid van rolle en in funksies in die liggaam. PPAR-γ transkripsie faktor inhibeer normaalweg die ontstaan en ontwikkeling van skadelike selle en word soos volg aangehaal en beskrywe;

“PPAR-γ activation inhibits the proliferation of malignant cells, including those derived from liposarcoma, breast adenocarcinoma[33] prostate carcinoma, colorectal carcinoma, etc. “

Die PPAR-γ transkripsie faktor kan egter ‘n tweesnydende swaard wees. Dit kan ook vir verskeie redes die vorming van kwaadaardige selle se ontwikkeling bevorder.

Curcumin blok die vorming en formasies van reaktiewe oksidasie in selle.  Curcumin inhibeer ook die ensieme en verskeie prosesse wat inflammasie in die liggaam of selle aktiveer.

Curcumin se oorsprong

Die effektiwiteit, die veilige farmakologiese waarde van curcuminoïede in algemene voorkomende  gesondheidspraktyke,  vereis dat daar weer na die potensiaal van curcumin gekyk word in verskeie siektetoestande soos in die Literatuur opgeteken.

Borrie word gemaak van die wortel (risome) van die Curcuma Longa plant. Van die totale worteloes word sowat 2-5% curcumin geoes. Borrie se bekende geel kleur word vir vele ander gebruike in voedsel en klerebedryf gebruik, maar word in die medisyne as “curcuminoïede” beskrywe.

Dit is reeds in 1842 geïsoleer deur ‘n navorser met die naam van Vogel.

Opneembaarheid van borrie.

Borrie en curcumin se nadeel is dat die “vet” of “oliewaardes” van die molekule prakties onoplosbaar is in water. Die molekulêre of chemiese struktuur van curcumin is C21H20O6. Curcumin in die Chemie staan ook bekend as “Diferuloylmethane.”


In die “ChEBI Databasis,” (Chemical Entities of Biological Interest) Databasis word borrie of curcumin in vele produkte gebruik. (Die volgende skrywe word in Engels gelaat vir maklike verwysing, indien ‘n leser verdere ondersoek sou wou instel.)

Curcumin has a role as a metabolite, an anti-inflammatory agent, an antineoplastic agent, a hepatoprotective agent, a flavouring agent, a biological pigment, a nutraceutical, an antifungal agent, a dye, a lipoxygenase inhibitor, a ligand, a radical scavenger, a contraceptive drug, an EC (histone deacetylase) inhibitor, an immunomodulator, an iron chelator, a neuroprotective agent, a food colouring, an EC (aldehyde reductase) inhibitor, an EC (shikimate dehydrogenase) inhibitor, an EC (IMP dehydrogenase) inhibitor, an EC [NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (quinone) inhibitor, an EC (thioredoxin reductase) inhibitor and as an EC (non-specific protein-tyrosine kinase) inhibitor, a polyphenol, a beta-diketone, an enone, a diarylheptanoid and an aromatic ether.

Curcumin en Kanker


  • Curcumin is ‘n kragtige antioksidant. Dit is ook die vriendelikste deel van die bio-aktiewe gedeelte van borrie.
  • Dit het ook verskeie eienskappe om kolesterol te verlaag.
  • Dit bevat vele “phyto” nutriënte soos curcuminoïede wat kanker op verskeie stadia inhibeer. Dit sluit in die ontstaan van potensiële oorsake van kanker, die ontwikkeling en die bevordering daarvan.
  • Curcumin word beskou as ‘n kragtige “anticarcinogenic compound, wat tumor-ontwikkeling verhoed en onderdruk/inhibeer, (carcinogenesis) en ook “angiogenesis” optree, wat die vorming van nuwe bloedvate wat tumors kan bedien, onderdruk of verhoed.
  • Curcumin het die potensiaal om “mitogen-induced proliferation” van limfosiete te onderdruk.
  • Curcumin onderdruk ook die stimulasie van neutrofiele (witbloedselle) en ook die
  • Die “mutagenesis” van gladde spierselle.

Die navorsing oor hoe dit gebruik kan word, word voorgestel in Afdeling 3.

Kroniese Stres en Kanker: Deel 1.


Kroniese Stres en Kortisol: Die oorsake en gevolge


Waarskynlik is stres van soorte, die enkele grootste oorsaak by kanker. Stres het in vele opsigte duisende seekat-tentakels wat in verskeie vorme voorkom. Stres is geen “Engel van die Lig” wat sonder handskoene getakel moet word nie.

Stres in sy vele vorme kan net individueel bestuur word. Dit kan net suksesvol bestuur word as die impak van stres se werklike skade besef word.  Stres mag nooit ligtelik met een of ander pil alleen  onderdruk word nie.


Pyne en skete

Stressors van soorte, waarvan enkele hier kortliks verduidelik word, manifesteer in vele vorme, waaronder pyne en skete. Die toestand beïnvloed vele kere mense se produktiwiteit, gehalte van lewe, gedagtegang, persoonlikheid en is ook waarskynlik ‘n baie groot rolspeler van stygende mediese kostes en uitgawes.1,2

Pyn van soorte is ook die primêre oorsaak wat veroorsaak dat mense mediese of medisinale intervensie soek om daarvan ontslae te raak. 3,4

Daar is ‘n magdom metodes om kliniese ondersoeke te doen om die oorsake van die verskillende groepe van pyne te vind om te behandel, wat psigologiese toestande insluit. Daar is natuurlik ook nie-pynverwante oorsake van stres wat in die proses van stresbehandeling, korrek geïdentifiseer moet word om behandeling daarvan suksesvol te maak. 5,6


Stres wat deur pyn veroorsaak word, word vele kere oordryf as lewensgevaarlik. Dit word ook vele kere hanteer asof dit dan in totaal vermy moet word omdat dit lewensgevaarlik is. 2,7,8

Literatuur beweer dat die psigosomatiese toestand by sommige mense die werklike pyntoestand vele kere totaal oordryf. Ook dat die psigiese persepsie en toestand daarvan die herstel proses belemmer en onnodig verleng.

Dit kan veroorsaak dat die persoon sieker word as wat hy/sy werklik is. 2,710

Studies wat die risiko faktore van die onderskeie tipes pyn bestudeer, onderskei tussen 2 tipes of groepe van pyn.

  1. “Muscolosketal Pain” is pyn wat ongemak in die strukture van die liggaam veroorsaak. Strukture soos spiere, bene, ligamente, kraakbeen, rugwerwelkolom en senuwees.
  2. Psigosomatiese Stres is pyne wat veroorsaak word deur vergroting van ‘n situasie, vrees, die siening dat die kleinste gebeurtenis ‘n katastrofe is.

Houding, waardes, vaardigheid

Negatiewe hantering of “coping” 1,2,79  van die lewe en sy gebeurtenisse is ook ‘n belangrike komponent wat fisiese pyn en skete veroorsaak.

Terapeute gebruik verskillende oefening en “Face your Giants” tegnieke om hierdie toestande aan te spreek. 11

Psigosomatiese oorsake en respons tot pyn moet egter in breër verband deur kundiges in hul verskeie velde aangespreek word. Stres beïnvloed die mens se neuro-endokriene stelsel en veroorsaak ‘n wanbalans van hormone.


Opsommend: Doel van die Skrywe

Begrip en kennis tussen werklike van fisiese pyn en psigologiese pyn, asook die vind van ‘n balans tussen fisiese pyn, psigologiese pyne en die oorsake en invloede van stres, mag dalk ‘n persoon se gehalte van lewe verbeter en hom/haar instaat stel om hul fisiese en geestelike gesondheid beter en veiliger asook gesonder te bestuur.

Die bestuur van stres, die persoonlike hantering daarvan het ‘n natuurlike liggaamlike respons. Hierdie respons speel in die vorming en ontstaan van vele siektes ‘n belangrike rol. Nie net in kanker nie.

Individue speel uiteindelik self ‘n belangrike rol in die ontstaan van hul siektes. Genetiese oorsake is altyd betrokke, asook eksterne faktore wat siektetoestande kan veroorsaak. Dit word nie hier bespreek nie.

Stres Respons: Hipotalamiese-Pituïtêre-Bynierskors (HPA-Axis) en Kortisol

Neurologies funksioneer die mens tussen die “Simpatiese senutoestand (Veg of vlug)” en die Parasimpatiese” senutoestand, (Rus en eet/verteer).

  1. Die Simpatiese Senutoestand
  • Is die veg of vlugtoestand van die liggaam. Die simpatiese toestand of proses bevorder die afbreek van voeding na kleiner partikels. Dit is dus partikels soos lipiede en proteïene, na vetsure, nukleotiede en aminosure.
  • Katabolisme is die “afbreek” aspek van metabolisme.
  • Die simpatiese senutoestand bevorder die kataboliese afbreek van vet en weefsel om glukose te produseer vir energie, bewustheid, motivering, en doelgerigte gedrag. 12
  1. Die Parasimpatiese Senutoestand

Bevorder heling en herstel van weefsel, immuunstelsel op te bou asook anaboliese groei (sintetisering van protoplasma om groei en herstel te stimuleer) om energievlakke te herstel en uithouvermoë uit te bou.12

Wat belangrik is:

Dat ‘n balans gevind word tussen die twee toestande,  die simpatiese en ‘n parasimpatiese toestand, wat van kritiese belang is in die langtermyn fisiese,  en psigologiese gesondheid.


Kortisol is ‘n kritiese kataboliese hormoon wat deur die byniere produseer word13 Dit word periodiek in die liggaam in die oggend geproduseer en verlangsaam gedurende die dag. 14,15

Gedurende die dag handhaaf kortisol bloedglukose en onderdruk ander orgaansisteme om energie te verskaf aan die aktiewe breinfunksies asook al die ander spiere en senuwees.

Kortisol is ‘n baie sterk anti-inflammatoriese hormoon.

  1. In balans keer dit senu en weefselskade wat met inflammasie geassosieer word.16
  2. Kortisol is ‘n belangrike faktor by mens en dier se respons by stres.
  3. By ‘n toestand van skrik en of skok, sal kortisolvlakke skielik verhoog om mens of dier die nodige spieruithouvermoë en ook energie te gee om te veg of te vlug wanneer dit nodig is om te oorleef.13,17
  4. Alhoewel kortisolproduksie baie nodig is in die korttermyn, asook wanneer nodig in gevaar, is langdurige kortisolproduksie baie skadelik langdurig, vir beide geestelike, fisiese en emosionele balans en gesondheid. 1618

Die Akute Stres Respons

‘n Stressor of stresveroorsakende stimulus is enige aksie/toestand/stimulus/rede/oorsaak wat ‘n fisiologiese reaksie in die liggaam veroorsaak wat as stres of angs gedefinieer kan word.

Dit kan vele toestande wees;

  • Fisiese bedreiging tot veiligheid
  • Eise wat die onmoontlike verwag
  • Onsekerheid oor veranderlikes in die omgewing
  • Oorlog en dood
  • Siektetoestande
  • Politieke oorsake
  • Finansieel
  • Werksomstandighede
  • Liefdesteleurstelling
  • Armoede en tekorte aan fisiese vermoëns om te sorg, soos in droogte

Enige toestand of omstandighede wat die moontlike verwagte uitkoms van ‘n verwagting nie waar word nie, kan as ‘n stressor beskou word. ‘n Effek van die stressor wat skadelike nagevolge en effekte op die mens en dier kan hê. 7,19,20


Ongeag of ‘n stressor en of stres stimuli pynverwant of nie pynverwant is nie, soos werkslading, werksverliese, verlies aan respek of agting, lewensmaat, finansies, kanker en of kroniese siektes, die blote wete of denke dat verlies vir ‘n persoon onbeheerbaar is, en nie omkeerbaar nie, kan ‘n negatiewe fisiologiese respons meebring. 1,2,7,20

Literatuur beskrywe dat stressors soos bankrotskap, werkloosheid, verlies aan sosiale status, vrees om iets belangriks te verloor, soos ‘n kind of dier of lewensmaat, die amigdala, ‘n gedeelte van die limbiese gedeelte van die brein. 21 stimuleer en beïnvloed.

  • Die amigdala reageer op vrees en gevare deur die onmiddellike simpatiese respons te stimuleer.
  • Kort daarna sal ‘n neuro-endokriene reaksie gestimuleer word, ‘n natuurlike ingebore respons om die (homeostase) balans in die liggaam te herstel om oorlewing te verseker. 13,15,22,23


Wanpersepsies, wanaangepaste hantering van stressors, onnadenkende wyses asook geloofsoortuiging hoe om sulke stressors te hanteer, kan ‘n oorreaksie veroorsaak en dus ‘n onnodig verhoogde fisiologiese stresrespons wat die reaksietyd tot herstel onnodig kan verleng, asook die pynervaring en belewenis onnodig kan verleng. 20,24,25

Die hantering van pyn as stressor.

‘n Negatiewe siening en ervaring van pyn kan die pynervaring onnodig fisiologies verleng. By die ontstaan van akute vorms van stres, stuur die amigdala boodskappe na die brein om simpatiese senureaksies te aktiveer. Pynervaring stimuleer ook hormone van die byniere (catecholamine), wat onderskeidelik dopamien, “norepinephrine” (oor genoem noradrenalien of noradrenalien) en “epinephrine” wat ook bekend is as adrenalien. 15,26


Hierdie neuro-oordraagbare hormone se funksies veroorsaak by verhoogde produksie versnelde hartklop, verhoogde bloeddruk, gejaagde of vinnige asemhaling, verhoogde sweetproduksie, vernouing van hartvate en die vergroting van die oog se pupille. 12


Funksie van verhoogde simpatiese senu-reaksies.

Die simpatiese reaksie op die korttermyn is ten doel om anti-inflammatories te wees. Dit het ten doel om antigene, patogene, vreemde voorwerpe en organismes uit aksie te stel en hul werkinge te inhibeer 13,26,27

Akute stres respons, pynverwant of nie, aktiveer ‘n normale fisiologiese stresrespons. (Korttermyn simpatiese afskeiding van adrenalien, ook genoem “epinepherine” en “norepinepherine,” wat gepaardgaan met die afskeiding van die anti-inflammatoriese hormoon, “kortisol.”

Hantering van die stresrespons, veroorsaak dat die vlakke van adrenalien,  kortisol en  norepinepherine normaliseer.

Wanneer stres vir welke redes verleng, of vir welke redes nie hanteer word nie, selfs kunsmatig en instandgehou word, veroorsaak dit ‘n verlengde afskeiding van kortisol. Die toestand veroorsaak ‘n “fear based memory” van stresvolle stimulasies wat inskop by enige toekomstige stresvolle situasies.

‘n Verlengde of langdurige instandhouding van stres resulteer in ‘n disfunksie van die impak van kortisol op die liggaam. Iets wat niemand wil troetel of handhaaf nie.


Kortisol is ‘n kragtige anti-inflammatoriese hormoon. Die disfunksies van kortisol is legio.26,63

Kortisol in disfunksie resulteer in ongemoduleerde inflammasie. Dit aktiveer ‘n siklus van inflammasie, depressie en fisiese pyn wat op hul beurt ‘n onbeheerbare siklus van ongemoduleerde inflammatoriese stressors en response veroorsaak. Dit weens die disfunksies van kortisol.

Studies wys op ‘n magdom assosiasies met inflammatoriese sitokinese, stresverwante kroniese pyn en “salivary hypocortisolism”. Lees hier en hier en hier. Daar is ook vele bewyse in die Literatuur dat stres bydra tot vele vorme van pyn, omdat pyn ‘n direkte verwantskap het met die inflammatoriese respons15,36



Pyn en Inflammasie

Inflammasie produseer vrye radikale, oksidatiewe en nitrosatiewe stres en skade aan gesonde selle43,44.  Die versameling van vrye radikale en gepaardgaande oksidatiewe stres dra by tot aktiewe weefsel degenerering en veroudering.  Osteoporose, miopatie, idiopatie en neuropatie is algemeen erkende manifestasies van inflammasie. Pyn op sy beurt is die fisiese effek van hierdie kondisies. 1316

Om die effek verder te kompliseer, veroorsaak inflammasie dat vergrote gapings in die wande wat dien as “barriers” of beskerming tussen bloed en die brein, asook die wande (lining) wat derminhoudelike in die dermkanaal weerhou om weer in die bloedstroom opgeneem te word.

Dit kompliseer klomp faktore in gesondheid. Omdat die immuunsisteem die skadelike toksienes nie herken as skadelike inhoud vir die liggaam nie. 26 Dit veroorsaak dat ander skadelike bakterie en virusse oor deurgelaat word.

Outo-immuunsisteem afwykings.

  • Inflammasie wat so ontwikkel bevorder hipersensitiwiteit hiervoor wat aanleiding gee tot die vorming van outo-immuunsiektes.
  • Outo-immuunsiektes kan ontstaan weens ongekontroleerde inflammasie wat aan vrye radikale bind, wat hul beurt weer aan gesonde selle bind, wat op hul beurt abnormale selle kan vorm wat kankeragtig word. 64
  • Outo-immuunsiektes is waar die immuunstelsel verward raak. Begin om gesonde selle in die liggaam aan te val as hul as “vyande” van die persoon se gesondheid te beskou. 15,16

Lae kortisolvlakke  

Hierdie toestand word verbind met verswakte algemene gesondheid. Wat op weer met vele ander siektes geassosieer word. 43,64,65.  Lae kortisolvlakke en respons word direk verbind met HIV Vigs of “acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, asook kanker geassosieer. 64

Gedrag, gedragsverandering en kortisol.

‘n Gekondisioneerde aangepaste gedragsrespons (Doelbewuste gedragsverandering by ‘n wanaangepaste psigologiese en of psigosomatiese persepsie dat als in die lewe swaar en moeilik is, ook “lewensbedreigend”), kan bydrae tot normalisering van kortisolafskeiding wat aanleiding sou gee tot pyn en inflammasie in die liggaam.

Die afskeiding van kortisol wat langdurig is, is kronies word en ook skadelik.

Die uitvoering van gedrag het te doen oor hoe kinders grootgemaak word. Waaraan hul blootgestel word. Kinders wat nie aktief grootgemaak word om die uitdagings van die lewe self te hanteer nie, kan waarskynlik kandidate wees versteurde gedragspatrone.

Gedragspatrone wat gevestig word en binne hul biologie ontstaan en in vele siektes kan manifesteer weens kortisolvlakke, wat onwillekeurig die hoofrol word in die hantering van situasies wat deel is van die normale lewe.

Blootstelling, wysheid, insig en die wete dat keuses oor hoe verliese hanteer word, (Victor Frankl) is lewensvaardighede wat al vroeg in almal se lewens beoefen moet word. Opvoeding en gedrag asook die uitlewing van gedrag, is direk verbind met biologiese response in die liggaam.

Vele versteurde gedragspatrone kan hieruit ontstaan. Sommige gedrag kan lei tot haat en woede en vergelding, wyl ander patrone kan lei tot selfbejammering, onderdanigheid, vrese vir die lewe, onsekerheid en ‘n verlamming om te waag en te bang wees om vry te lewe meebring.

Die verlies van ‘n geliefde, ‘n lewensmaat, ‘n troeteldier, werk kan dieselfde liggaamsrespons meebring. Ongeag die oorsaak van die verlies, die rigting van gedrag en die gedragsrespons, kroniese stres en die onvermoë om teleurstellings te hanteer, kan manifesteer in ‘n gevoel van moedeloosheid en een van geen hoop en dit word ‘n belangrike gesondheidsaspek en faktor in die gesondheid van ‘n mens. 19

Die bestuur van verliese en teleurstellings is ‘n kritieke aspek in elke mens se lewe. Dit is een van die belangrikste lewenslesse en lewensvaardighede wat alle mense vroeg in hul lewe moet leer om suksesvol te hanteer.

Word die lewensvaardighede nie aangeleer nie, kan versteurde gedrag ontwikkel in aggressie of dit kan manifesteer in die soek van aandag en selfbejammering wat kan ontwikkel in depressie, omdat belangrike lewensvaardighede om teleurstellings en verliese te oorkom afwesig is. 68

Dit lei na versteurde gedrag, verskeie soorte van disfunksionele kortisolafskeiding, na inflammasie, pyn en siektetoestande wat kan lei na vele outo-immuunsiektes en ook kanker. Literatuur in die algemeen verwys na neuro-endokriene afwykings wat ontstaan weens die disfunksionele afskeiding en uitwerkinge van kortisol. 18,3639



Kortisol en stressors van soorte is dus een van die grootste en belangrikste aspekte in kanker en outo-immuunsiektes. Dit kan kortweg so opgesom word;

  • Die bestuur van stressors en kortisol
  • Die bestuur van die gevolge van stressors en kortisol, wat die skadelike gevolge van langdurige afskeiding van kortisol insluit
  • Die rol en gevolge van kortisol in pyn en inflammasie, wat kan lei tot outo-immuunsiektes en kanker.
  • Natuurlike produkte wat in die Literatuur beskrywe is, se doelwitte, gebruike en uitkomstes.
  • Dit word in Afdeling 3 beskrywe.

What is Carbohydrate-Derived Fulvic Acid

Carbohydrate-Derived Fulvic Acid (CHD-FA™) is an internationally-patented, safe, non-toxic, water-soluble and heat-stable active ingredient for use in food, health supplements and medicines. It is a new, pure and uniform version of an ancient ingredient from nature – environmental fulvic acid.


 Ask yourself why people take mud baths? It is because of the healing properties of the humic and fulvic acids in the mud. It is often called ‘Nature’s Miracle Molecule’. It is found in soil and nothing on this planet can grow without it. It is the energy of life. Its medicinal properties are well-known and have been documented over thousands of years.

Environmental fulvic acid is formed over a very long period of time in extremely small amounts by millions of beneficial microbes that work on decaying plant matter. Fulvic acid then works to activate the nutrients within soil so that they can be utilised by the cells of plants.

FulvicTextLike its action in soil, fulvic acid serves as an essential vehicle that carries vitamins and nutrients to the right place in our bodies. Rather than a single molecule, it is a range of organic acids, each one having its own action and purpose and the whole working together.

The patented CHD-FA™ is a unique supramolecular fulvic acid – it has a fixed structure with a range of backbone structures (consistent from batch to batch) working in your body as intended by nature.

images (13)

Because of CHD-FA™ being a range of organic plant acids it has a wide range of efficacy. It is a proven anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant agent whilst assisting with nutritional uptake. The unique invention of CHD-FA™ is to simulate what takes place over many years in nature – in essence fast-tracking the natural process.

images (14)

You may ask yourself why only now? Why has fulvic acid not previously been used extensively for healing and better health? The reason for this is evident in the table below:

What benefits can you expect when taking CHD-FA™?

Because of all the properties mentioned above, you can expect the following when you regularly drink CHD-FA™:

  • A stronger immune system which gives you better protection against diseases and infections.
  • Better balanced blood sugar.
  • Renewed energy.
  • Reduced inflammation and free radical damage.
  • Shortened recovery time from muscular and joint pains.
  • Better oxygenation.
  • Cleansing of your body.
  • Lessening of health risks associated with heavy metals.
  • Assists with improved concentration.
  • Assists with increased metabolism.
  • Helps reduce recovery time after exercise.
  • When used topically it kills bacteria, preventing or clearing up infections.

CHD-FA™ and Sport

 The various properties of CHD-FA™ have been described under the Benefits section. It is these benefits which make it so useful to people participating in any type of sport because if fulvic acid is taken regularly over a period of 2–3 months, problems associated with lactic acid and carbon dioxide may be reduced.


images (1)

CHD-FA™ as a free radical scavenger, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory has the ability to protect muscle cells and thus may reduce the detrimental effects of lactic acid build-up and inflammation. Testimonials have shown that when CHD-FA™ sport supplements are taken, muscle soreness after exercise is decreased and an ability to train for longer is noticed.

Testimonials have shown that when CHD-FA™ supplements are taken for a sufficient time, muscle soreness after exercise is decreased and the ability to train for longer is noticed.

It is vital, especially for athletes, to consume a regular amount of anti-oxidants. Well-known anti-oxidants include vitamins A, C and E, but the complex structure of CHD-FA™ makes it far more powerful an antioxidant than any other nutrient known. This, combined with its anti-inflammatory and chelating properties, make it an ideal supplement to be used when doing sport.

It is widely known that fulvic acid possesses truly remarkable biological properties. It is these properties which make the use of CHD-FA™ as a supplement for athletes a must because it:

  • Is an anti-inflammatory assisting with inflammatory conditions, speeding up recovery in athletes by repairing damaged tissue.
  • Has chelating properties which increase making minerals more bioavailable, assisting in recovery and reducing stress on kidneys.
  • Reduces stress on energy metabolism during sport and recovery.
  • Reduces the impact of free radicals during and after sport.
  • Provides optimal protection against the increased production of oxidants.
  • Provides a very powerful electrolyte.
  • Restores electrolyte balance essential for optimal muscle function and energy metabolism.

 CHD-FA™ has its own safety and toxicity work completed to allopathic standards. The safety work on CHD-FA™ can be split into two categories, namely:

  • In vitro and in vivo safety work completed on CHD-FA™
  • Safety in production

In vitro and in vivo safety work concluded

The safety of CHD-FA™ has been proven at certified GLP laboratories locally and internationally over a period of many years and at a cost of millions. This work includes the following (please note that this list is not exhaustive – if additional information is required, please contact us):

  • Bacterial Mutation Assay (Ames test): CHD-FA™ was considered to be non-mutagenic.
  • Micronucleus: The test indicated no genotoxicity for both filtered and unfiltered CHD-FA™ in an in vitro micronucleus assay.
  • BCO2 Evolution Test – Assessment of Ready Biodegradability: This test proved that CHD-FA™ is readily biodegradable under the terms and conditions of OECD Guideline No 301B.
  • Pesticides and pyrogens: Tests indicated that CHD-FA™ contains no pesticides whilst that may be the case with environmental fulvic acids.
  • Peer-reviewed Safety and Proof-of-Concept of CHD-FA™: This published article proves that CHD-FA™ is safe for systemic use at 40 ml twice a day.
  • Peer-reviewed safety in immune-compromised patients: A clinical trial published proves that CHD-FA™ is safe for use even if immunity is compromised.
  • Skin irritation testing performed in Germany.

Safety in Production

CHD-FA™ is produced in a South African Health Products Regulatory Authority cGMP (License Nr 0000001280) and Manufacturing Pharmacy (License Nr Y54509) as well as FSSC 22000 approved facility.

For any product to be considered safe for use in human consumption, batch-to-batch consistency in production is of paramount importance. In contrast to CHD-FA™, environmental fulvic acid varies from batch to batch as it is impossible to ensure consistency.

CHD-FA™ however is a unique fulvic acid being a supramolecule – it has a fixed structure with a range of backbone structures that has been proven to be consistent from batch to batch using the following methods:

  • FTIR
  • LC-MS
  • NMR
  • GC-MS

To ensure safety and consistency, each batch of CHD-FA™ manufactured has to pass standards as have been set up and validated. The release parameters and test specifications are as below:

  • Appearance: Visual inspection

Research/Efficacy on CHD-FA™

The medicinal uses of humic substances and fulvic acid have been known for many years. Medicinal products containing humic and fulvic acids with therapeutic indications for inflammation, bacterial infections, allergies, arthritis, rheumatism and various other conditions are freely available. CHD-FA™ is free of heavy metals and environmental pollutants and safe for pharmaceutical interventions. CHD-FA™ has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antioxidant properties.

It has a supramolecular structure that is characterised by twenty-four principal backbone structures embedded in CHD-FA™. The backbone structures are associated with each other and with the parent structure through intermolecular bonding to form a supramolecular structure. It is all these backbone structures (consistent from batch to batch) that give CHD-FA™ its wide range of efficacy. Three examples of these 24 backbone structures, each with their own medicinal properties, are:

  • Malic acid: Anti-inflammatory; antibacterial; antifungal; antiviral; antioxidant.
  • Tartaric acid: Anti-inflammatory; antibacterial.
  • Acetyl salicylic acid/aspirin: Anti-inflammatory; antibacterial; antifungal.

Specific research completed on CHD-FA™

Over R50 million has been spent on research work specifically on CHD-FA™. The purpose of this was to not solely rely on anecdotal data and general information but to ensure whatever efficacy is claimed in regards to CHD-FA™, there is data to support it. The studies mentioned below under each condition are just some of the studies completed on CHD-FA™ -there are many more. Please contact us if more information on the studies mentioned below or any additional studies that have been done if required.

  • Anti-inflammatory

 Many conditions in the human body are caused by inflammation. CHD-FA™ with its known anti-inflammatory properties will assist with these conditions. The following studies have been successfully completed:

  • CHD-FA™ inhibits Carrageen-induced inflammation and enhances wound healing. This peer-reviewed, published study conducted at the University of Pretoria indicated that CHD-FA™ has its anti-inflammatory effect by neutralising free radicals. The rate of reduction in the inflammation as a result of ingesting CHD-FA™ is equivalent to that of Indomethacin, a registered anti-inflammatory often used.
  • Phase 1 clinical study of the acute and sub-acute safety and proof of concept efficacy in humans. This peer-reviewed, published study also proved that CHD-FA™ acts as an anti-inflammatory.
  • Inflammatory efficacy of CHD-FA™ in an in vitro whole blood assay (human). The conclusion of this study done at Washington Biotechnology was that CHD-FA™ is a potent anti-inflammatory agent comparable to Dexamethasone.
  • In a randomized, parallel-group, double-blind, controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of CHD-FA™ in the topical treatment of eczema, which has been peer-reviewed and published, it was found that CHD-FA™ in a cream formulation successfully improved eczema.


Bacterial and microbial infections, both systemic as well as topical, are a major health issue worldwide. Furthermore, antibiotic overuse, as well as not completing prescribed courses of antibiotics, has created a generation of resistant bacteria that, once they have invaded our bodies makes treatment very difficult. Studies at various institutions around the globe found that CHD-FA™ was successful in not only killing a wide variety of organisms, but also has the following effects:

  • Works synergistically with other medicines.
  • Is effective against a wide variety of resistant bacteria.

Antibacterial studies on CHD-FA™, including peer-reviewed and published articles:

  • CHD-FA™ is a highly-promising topical agent to enhance healing of wounds infected with drug-resistant pathogens. This peer-reviewed and published work was done at the Public Health Research Institute, Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School. The study proved that CHD-FA™ is effective against the ‘super-bug’, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a powerful microbe that has become of major concern worldwide.
  • Biological properties of CHD-FA™ as a potential novel therapy for the management of oral biofilm infections. This study conducted at the world-famous Glasgow Dental School, School of Medicines, was peer-reviewed and published, and concluded that CHD-FA™ exhibits broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against orally-relevant biofilm organisms.
  • Synergistic effect of CHD-FA™. The results of this study conducted at the University of Pretoria showed that CHD-FA™ has antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans. The antimicrobial spectrum of CHD-FA™ compares favourably with that of currently-prescribed antibiotics and acts synergistically with oxacillin (methicillin) and gentamicin. A Gram stain of albicans grown in the presence of CHD-FA™ showed rounded, enlarged, non-dividing bodies indicating that this product acts on the cell wall of microorganisms.
  • Assessment of the in vitro efficacy of CHD-FA ± Oxacillin following several passages in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (EMRSA16). This study at Euprotec in the UK indicated that there is no resistance build-up by CHD-FA™.
  • Determination of the in vitro efficacy of CHD-FA™ against multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Mycobacteria. The study concluded:
    • CHD-FA™ was effective against NDM-1, KPC and ESBL positive Klebsiella pneumonia and multi-resistant coli strains with a 100% MIC value of 0.06-0.12%.
    • CHD-FA™ was highly effective against multi-resistant Gram negative bacilli including NDM-1 positive strains. CHD-FA was also highly effective against Mycobacterium smegmatis. All organisms were inhibited using ≤0.12% of CHD-FA™.
  • Antiviral

Viruses are microscopic organisms that replicate within the cells of animals, plants and humans and subsequently cause disease. Such diseases can range from the common cold and influenza to Epstein Barr’s disease, herpes and hepatitis, to name but a few.

An in vitro study performed at the University of Pretoria showed CHD-FA™ to be fast and effective in managing feline herpes.

In vitro work was also done at Virologic in the USA against HIV strains, showing efficacy.

  • Antifungal

 Not all fungi are beneficial. Some are toxic and often cause diseases that can be both uncomfortable and dangerous. Examples include: aspergillus (can cause cancer); zygomycetes (can cause serious external skin infections and internal infections along the gastrointestinal tract); and Candida, of which there are many species with the most common one causing vaginal infections. As with many strains of bacteria, many Candida species are resistant to drugs.

A wide range of studies were performed on CHD-FA™ as an anti-fungal agent:

  • Studies carried out at Fungiscope in Germany showed that resistant Candida strains tested were inhibited by CHD-FA™.
  • Assessment of the in vivo efficacy of CHD-FA™ in a murine model of disseminated Candidiasis. This study done at Euprotec in the UK proved that CHD-FA™ is effective in vivo against Candida albicans on its own or in combination with other medicines such as Fluconazole.
  • Assessment of the in vitro efficacy of CHD-FA™ against malassezia and dermatophyte This study done at Euprotec in the UK proved that CHD-FA™:
    • inhibits the growth of Malassezia dermatis, Malassezia furfur and Malassezia globosa when used as a 0.125% solution at its native pH of 2.1 in vitro.
    • inhibits the growth of all dermatophyte strains tested, except Microsporum canis, when used as a 0.2-0.4% solution.
  • Immune Support

Because of its anti-oxidant as well as chelating and other properties such as enhanced nutritional uptake as discussed, CHD-FA™ is effective in supporting a stronger immune system.

  • Anti-Diabetic

Diabetes is a disease affecting millions of people. Because of the various healing properties of CHD-FA™, an in vivo study was conducted at the Medical Research Institute and the outcome was:

The solutions tested significantly enhanced glucose uptake both in the C2C12 muscle and Chang liver cells. The increase in the glucose uptake was comparable to that of metformin, an established anti-diabetic agent.

  • Antioxidant

The antioxidant properties are well-documented in general literature such as the article in the Journal of Food, Agriculture & Environment Vol. 9 (3&4): 123 – 127 (2011). Additional testing has also been done on CHD-FA™ confirming its excellent anti-oxidant properties.

The summary of work done at University of Pretoria concluded: “it has been shown that CHD-FA™ possesses some antioxidant properties in vitro.  This property suggests that this product may be an effective immunomodulator for the treatment of diseases associated with an overproduction of reactive oxidants by human phagocytes.”

  •  Nutritional Uptake

CHD-FA™ assist in nutritional uptake as has been proven by a study at the University of Pretoria. From the study it is clear that CHD-FA™ will assist in the nutritional uptake of various minerals.

  •  Preservative

Because of the antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal properties of CHD-FA™, it essentially acts as its own preservative in the various products. The preservative efficacy report by SWIFT SILLIKER confirms the preservative properties of CHD-FA™.

Oxynated Olive Oil cannot be considered a pharmaceutical drug.

  • It is developed to be a skincare product for various external treatments and topical uses on suitable sensitive skins.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil consists of ozone and pure organically produced olive oil.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil Does not contain parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanols, colorants or fragrances.
  • And it is lastly, proudly not tested on animals.


A short History of Ozone Oil

Nikola Tesla (in 1900) began marketing an ozonated olive oil to medical doctors in the 1900’s.  Tesla is known as one of the most influential scientists the world has ever seen. When Albert Einstein was asked a tricky question about who the cleverest man on earth is, his answer was politely.

“I don’t know. You have to ask Nicola Tesla”

Nikola Tesla created his ozonated oil by bubbling ozone through pure olive oil in the presence of a magnetic field for eight weeks.

By 1904, ozonated olive oil, also known as “Glycozone”, began appearing in medical literature, such as “The Medical Uses of Hydrozone and Glycozone”, 9th Edition, by New York Chemist Charles Marchland.


What is Oxynated Olive Oil Balm? 

Oxynated Olive Oil Balm is produced when ozone gas is bubbled through pure cold press virgin olive oil. The bubbling of the ozone through pure virgin olive oil, is a 24/7 continuous process.

The production of one batch of Oxynated Olive Oil last between 4- 6 weeks. During this time the olive oil will turn and change to a soft “off-white” paste.

What is ozone?

  • Ozone is an unstable, but highly beneficial molecule.
  • It’s the tri-atomic form of oxygen
  • Normal oxygen consists of two atoms (O2).
  • Ozone consist of three (3) oxygen atoms (O3).

How does Oxynated Olive Balm function.

  • Ozone is a gas with the chemical formula O3.
  • It is the allotropic form of oxygen (O2), meaning that it is “oxygen in its most active state”.
  • Ozone gas is naturally found in the environment. It well known for the “Gap in the Ozone layer”.
  • The ozone layer protects the planet from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.

images (14)

  • Ozone’s main feature is its incredible ability to purify, its functional ability to eliminate organic compounds, including all known bacteria, fungi and viruses successfully.
  • When ozone is applied directly onto bacteria, fungi and viruses, ozone has an immediate eliminating effect on the organism.
  • The only residue that Oxynated Olive Oil leaves behind, is pure oxygen.
  • This makes Oxynated Olive Oil an extremely effective natural germicide agent.

How does Ozone react with Olive Oil?

images (18)

  • With pure virgin olive oil, the ozone reacts with the fatty acids in the olive oil under controlled reaction conditions.
  • This process creates among other compounds, multiple peroxide species such as lipoperoxides, ozonides, aldehydes and ketones.

Multiple studies refer to the synergy that is created between the ozone and olive oil. These studies explain the vast benefits of the molecular structure of ozonated olive oil, with specific reference to the beneficial values it offers.

Not all ozonated oils are equal

Do not ever be misled. Not all ozonated oils are equal.

The quality and functional properties of ozonated olive oil depends on the raw material used (cold press pure virgin olive oil), as well as the quality of the “cold press” manufacturing process.

Ozone is an unstable gas.

  • It does not want to stay in a “tri-atomic” state.
  • It is therefore important to be held in check by other able molecular bindings.
  • Ozone will break down from O3 to O2 to O1 within 20 minutes at atmospheric pressure.

The Importance of the O1 breakdown

  • O1 is called a “singlet oxygen atom”.
  • It is HIGHLY REACTIVE with just about any substance.
  • It will react with almost any organism or substance that should not be in the human body (i.e. viruses, bacteria, fungi, etc.).
  • It is widely in acknowledged in Literature as a “Universal cleansing agent”.

Why Olive Oil? 


  • Literature claims that olive oil contains large amounts of “antioxidants.”
  • Apart from its beneficial fatty acids, olive oil also contains modest amounts of vitamins E and K.
  • These antioxidants are biologically active and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases (6, 7).


  • Olive oil is known to fight inflammation.
  • Olive oil also protects blood cholesterol from oxidation
  • Added to this, is it is well known to lower the risk of heart diseases. (8, 9) in its pure virgin form.

Multiple studies have shown that the combination of oil and ozone has a synergistic effect, highly beneficial for skin health.

  • The O1 factor will protect the skin against external aggressors and the damaging effects of airborne and other harmful environmental free radicals.
  • It will also destroy foreign microorganisms not does not belong in the body.
  • Olive Oil is deeply moisturizing and nourishing, while olive oil purifies, regenerate and helps in the healing processes of the skin.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil improves cellular metabolism. It strengthens the natural anti-inflammatory abilities of the immune system.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil will improve blood circulation, causing ulcers and or severe skin conditions such as dry skin conditions. Especially with elder people and or people constraint to wheelchairs. (See the various uses that follows).
  • The O1- Ozone factor will stop the production of germs present in some skin conditions, such as acne, seborrhea, skin lesions, redness, etc.
  • Ozonated Olive Oil might also be a good alternative to consider as natural treatment, rather than the use of corticosteroid creams.

Does ozone kills good bacteria too?

  • It doesn’t really matter how much and how fast you kill viruses and or fungi or bacteria.
  • If you do not protect your healthy cells from re- infection,  you will never eliminate the cause of illness effectively.
  • It is therefore most important to protect your healthy cells and prevent viruses and bacteria to use these cells from replicating.

This is one of the wonderful side effects ozone provides.

  • Ozone facilitates the Krebs’s cycle by improving the oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate and promoting the synthesis of ATP.
  • There is also an increase in antioxidant enzymes that act as free radical scavengers (such as glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase). (Ciborowski, Lipska, Godzien, et al., 2012)
  • With the increased protection of healthy cells that are surrounded by protective enzymes, re- infection is reduced to the minimum.



  • Oxynated Olive Oil Balm is therefore a valuable medium or vehicle to enrich with powerful “reactive oxygen,” to address the effects of harmful microorganisms.
  • The “O1” singlet Ozonated Olive Oil will actively destroy fungi, parasites, bacteria and spores found on the skin.

Oxynated Olive Oil might also be very beneficial in the following conditions:

Oxynated Olive Oil Skin in conclusion

  • Is a germicide power against bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant balm
  • Is actively stimulates the internal or endogenous antioxidant system in the skin
  • Proves to have immune-stimulant properties, as well as an exceptional functional ability to repair and heal tissues
  • It proves to have numerous moisturizing and nourishing abilities
  • It is extremely efficient in destroying external free radical aggressors
  • It will improve and increase functional cell metabolism.
  • Through ozone’s anti-inflammatory properties, it will reduce pain as well as swelling.

Oxynated Olive Oil: Diaper rash, skincare, bed sores, ulcers, etc.

Example 1. There are various causes of diaper rush

  • Baby skin is a delicate fragile organ. The diaper area is expose to faeces, urine, humidity and poor ventilation.
  • The lower abdomen is susceptible to the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms, that cause inflammation, (bacteria, viruses, spores, fungi) reddening rash, pain and sores.
  • Many children are affected by seborrheic dermatitis, atopic eczema or psoriasis.
  • Not only children, impaired people in wheelchairs as well as the elderly in bed with sensitive skin types, will show signs of rash and irritation.
  • Exposure to these harmful pathogenic organisms can complicate skin conditions.
  • We can therefore except that a baby’s body (also the the impaired and the elderly) is exposed to pathogenic organisms that might be harmful to their skin.

images (21)

Diaper rash is known as an “Irritation of the skin under the diaper”.

Diaper rash appears as a red patch with well-delimited borders. Diaper rash can be extremely painful when touched, also depending on its severity.

The redness or red patches also tends to get further irritated because of diapers, creams, fabrics, washing powders, poor quality soaps and fabric softeners.

Varying factors play cause inflamed skin conditions

  • Humidity, and the lack of air flow and intense rubbing.
  • Ammonia produced in urine.
  • Irritants found in faeces, especially when acidic, as is the case of diarrhoea.
  • Products used to wash linen diapers.
  • Cleaning and the excessive use of cosmetic products. 

Example 2: Oxynated Olive Oil and diabetic foot

Oxynated Olive Oil moisturizes, nourishes, purifies and heals the skin

  • Feet is perhaps the most mistreated part of our body. It must withstand many and various external aggressors during a person’s entire lifetime.
  • Feet bear weight, endure wrong footwear, get hot and sweaty, get tired, dirty, compressed, dry out, catch fungal infections, etc.


There are approximately more than 366 million people with diabetes worldwide today. Among the many complications of this illness, skin related problems are very dominant.

“Diabetic foot” is serious condition that needs special treatment and preventative care.

Oxynated Olive Oil in diabetic skin

Oxynated Olive is an ideal product for caring and protecting the skin.

The skin is also the largest organ in the body. People who suffers from diabetes and blood sugar levels, undergo extreme spikes because they suffer a lack of insulin secretion, not generated by the pancreas.

Sugar level abnormalities, cause the loss of sensation especially in peoples lower body and extremities, in particular their feet. This condition cause damage to blood vessels, resulting in numerous ulcers.

Diabetes is very instrumental in infections and amputations.

Dry feet and cracking heels (Nondiabetic)
Many people suffer common foot problems such as dryness, flaking, cracked heels, swelling, ulcers, sores, scars, fungi, etc.

  • Oxynated Olive Oil will protect and even spoil feet, providing them with the protection, moisture and nutrition that they need.
  • In addition, Oxynated Olive Oil is anti-inflammatory and will combat swelling directly.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil is also highly recommended for women who wear high heels on a continuous basis.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil has germicide abilities that will eliminate the causes of dryness, flaking, cracked heels, swelling, ulcers, sores, scars, fungi without any side effects.
  • In addition, Oxynated Olive Oil has significant healing properties in relieving, soothing and repairing the skin, following the appearance of blisters or ulcers.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil will assist in diabetic skin repair and cellular metabolism, by activating the micro-circulation of blood capillary networks.

Example 3: Bedsores and skin ulcers

Oxynated Olive Oil will treat areas on the body that is prone to turn into bedsores and ulcers.

Oxynated Olive Oil is a very useful product for those who are bedridden, or in a wheelchair. It will be extremely helpful to people who has poor blood circulation or diabetes.

Oxynated Olive Oil activates the micro-circulation of blood, the capillary networks of the body and cellular metabolism.

The main cause of bedsores is the lack of blood circulation and immobility.

Impaired people spend much to long time in the same passive position.

That interrupts;

  • their normal blood flow
  • resulting in cell death
  • resulting in poor oxygen flow to cells
  • poor discharge of Carbon dioxide or CO₂ from the cells
  • Oxynated Olive Oil will destroy concentration of various free radicals in wounds, and or places which leads to redness, toxins, toxic concentrations, irritations in wounds and bedsores.

Elderly people are at the highest risk of developing bedsores.

But that includes bedridden patients and disabled people with reduced mobility. Wheelchairs will always increase various disorders,

Bedsores can also be caused by other factors;

  • poor nutrition
  • low levels of magnesium
  • stress
  • humidity
  • urine and fecal drops
  • any acquired skin sensitivity.

Oxynated Olive Oil moisturizes, nourishes, purifies and heals the skin through the synergistic effect of organic extra virgin olive oil, and the active O1 ozone molecule, as described.

Example 4: Oxynated Olive Oil and feminine hygiene

Oxynated Olive Oil will sooth irritations associated with hair removal, irritations in and at intimate areas and will also improve circulation in the lower abdominal area, legs and foot care

images (31)

Women do have parts of extreme sensitive skin, that is constantly exposed to external aggressors, various types of bacteria and harmful microorganisms, the origins of infections, irritations, dehydration as well as skin dryness.

Women (men to) are also exposed to harmful external aggressors

  • Air-borne bacteria and microorganisms that cause infections, irritation, dehydration, dryness, and acne.
  • The weather plays a significant role in skin conditions
  • Cheap, fake or inappropriate harmful products contaminate the skin itself.
  • Abrupt temperature changes cause facial skin to feel tight, dry, neglected, flaky, etc.

All these external factors cause a rupture in the natural lipid barrier on the skin’s surface. It allows natural moisturizing substances in our skin to evaporate that results into dryness.

  • Oxynated Olive Oil will immediately combat skin dryness, giving the skin the moisture and nutrition that it needs.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil applied at night will help to prevent the appearance of annoying pimples, blackheads and blotches in young children.

Example 5: Hair removal
Hair removal is associated with rashes, reddening and irritation. Waxing, shaving and conventional diode laser hair removal are serious aggressors.

  • Oxynated Olive Oil is recommended for use directly on the damaged skin as a moisturizer, purifier and anti-inflammatory agent before and after hair removal. This will help to reduce stinging, purify the skin and prevent the appearance of future irritation.
  • Oxynated Olive Oil is highly recommended for use on the most sensitive areas of the body. Areas that rash and inflame the most during hair removal, such as the armpits, soft skin and or shaved intimate areas.

Oxynated Olive Oil and Intimate care
Many women are faced with multiple factors that can cause conditions of personal private harm.

Candida aureus and Candida albicans are associated with irritation, various infections and or the spread of spores of associated fungi.

images (30)

It must be noted;

A lack of proper understanding and knowledge of the importance of intimate health care, can result in the appearance of various harmful pathogenic micro-organisms causing  infections.

  • it is harmful microorganisms character to appear with irritating effects in the most intimate female areas.
  • Many times, with infections, the vaginal area became associated with unpleasant smells.
  • It is in general, an unhealthy situation that effects women’s state of mind, interpersonal relations and sexual activities and personal well-being.
  • There are numerous products for feminine care on the market. Their content tends many times to be very harsh and acidic.
  • Many products also alter the very important safety barrier and balance of vaginal pH.
  • Good bacteria in the vaginal area ensures vaginal health and will help to protect and destroy harmful bacteria that enters the vaginal area.
  • Certain medications can cause a reduction in pH-defenses
  • That situation is to the detriment of women’s sexual health, intimacy as well as sexual well-being.

It is well known;

  • That certain fabrics, such as lace in intimate areas, can cause irritation and or burning.
  • Detergents and fabric softeners with a high chemical content can also trigger allergies and irritation.
  • Pubic lice can be a problem to.
  • External allergens such as dust, poor personal health care, careless sexual activities as well as other allergens can cause irritations and allergies.

Oxynated Olive Oil is highly recommended for these conditions.

Oxynated Olive Oil will help to prevent the appearance of pathogenic agents to house themselves in the vaginal area.

It will successfully do so through its germicidal properties. It will also moisturize and protect the infected skin, destroy the bacteria en repair the damaged skin.

Example 6: Circulation and varicose veins (Oxynated Olive Oil and Fulvic Acid)
Varicose veins are dilated and unpleasant-looking surface veins that appear under the skin. They tend to be swollen vessels caused by poor blood circulation.

That is due to a lack of adequate oxygen.

Women are especially predisposed to varicose veins. In many circumstances is is caused by unhealthy habits;

  • Smoking is a serious culprit.
  • A lack of exercise
  • Not eating a healthy diet.
  • Sometimes they can be aggravated during certain stages of pregnancy due to the need to rest.

images (23)

It is impossible to prevent their appearance. But, with knowledge it can be avoided by having an active plan to improve movement and blood circulation.

Oxynated Olive Oil, with Fulvic Acid can fight varicose veins as the effects of ozone and Fulvic release oxygen, which helps to oxygenate the blood and improve blood flow.

In addition, it might reduce the visibility of these veins, with Oxynated Olive Oil and Fulvic Acid,  through their abilities to send oxygen to the smallest capillaries in the skin, which very few other products manage to reach.

Example 7: Oxynated Olive Oil, haemorrhoids, anal irritation and itch

  • Haemorrhoids are produced when the veins in the area below the rectum, or in the anus, become excessively dilated, turning the situation into a sort of varicose vein.
  • These dilation’s can be painful, itchy, bloody and burning.
  • Relief from haemorrhoids can be obtained by correcting the factors that aggravate them as much as possible.
  • A dedicated diet, high in fibre and liquids, is recommended to avoid constipation.
  • Haemorrhoids requires a person to avoid alcohol, spicy foods and coffee and a regular low-intensity exercise, such as walking or swimming.

download (17)

Oxynated Olive Oil will address the unpleasant symptoms caused by haemorrhoids and any other type of anal irritation, inflammation or itch. Oxynated Olive Oil have a synergistic effect that fights inflammation and irritation, improves metabolism and purifies and lubricates the area, thus providing haemorrhoid relief.

Oxynated Olive Oil also protects and repairing sensitive skin, which makes it very effective for perianal dermatitis or any other types of anal irritation, burning, itch or more continue.

Oxynated Olive Oil not only address the issues associated by haemorrhoids, but also conditions caused by constipation, diarrhoea, acidic feces, anal sex, allergies to soap and or poor quality toilet paper.

Pyn en Inflammasie II


Verstaan Pyn en Bestuur jou Chroniese Inflammasie natuurlik.

Wat is Inflammasie?

Inflammasie is ‘n kondisie waar jou liggaam teen iets veg en baklei. Om die virus, bakterie, fungi of wat dit ook al is, ter wille van jou algehele gesondheid te onderdruk. Inflammasie kan ook ontstaan weens kneusplekke en beserings. Inflammasie kan ook ontstaan weens voedsel en bymiddels wat ons inneem, soos suiker.


Inflammasie sneller jou Immuunsisteem om teen die ongewenste vreemde organisme op te tree en dit te vernietig op vele interessante biologiese wyses.

Hierdie reaksie

  • Sluit die vrystelling van teenliggaampies en proteïene in OM DIE WERK TE DOEN
  • Dit sluit ook die verhoogde bloed toevloei in
  • Dit is ‘n proses wat ure en selfs dae kan neem.


Kroniese Inflammasie vind plaas wanneer die immuunrespons nie end kry nie en aanhou hinder. Wat oor tyd onnodige skade kan veroorsaak op organe en ander weefsel.

Simptome van Kroniese Inflammasie

Onderstaande skete en pyne kan vir maande en weke aangaan

  • Totale lusteloosheid en moegheid
  • Koors
  • Mondsere
  • Rash
  • Abdominale pyne
  • Borspyne


Wat veroorsaak Kroniese Inflammasie

Kroniese Inflammasie het verskeie agente of oorsake

Dit kan wees;

  • Akute inflammasie wat onderdruk word of onbehandeld gelaat word
  • Infeksie of ou beserings
  • Outo-immuun oorsake wat gesonde weefsel of organe aanval
  • Langtermyn blootstelling aan chemiese stowwe, giftige gasse soos asbes, fabrieksrook, petrochemiese produkte en vuil lug en water.


Neem kennis dat almal nie Kroniese Inflammasie weens bogenoemde ontwikkel nie.

  • Kroniese inflammasie het nie altyd ‘n duidelike bewysbare oorsaak nie.
  • Kan genetiese faktore ook wees
  • Die Literatuur verwys na enkele oorsake wat kroniese inflammasie bevorder.


Watter Impak het Kroniese Inflammasie en Stres op die Liggaam

Met kroniese inflammasie (stres) kan die liggaam se immuunrespons (wat inflammasie is wat ontstaan) gesonde selle, weefsel en organe beskadig.

Dit kan as dit nie behandel word nie, oor tyd, weefsel laat afsterwe, DNA beskadig en ook interne weefselskade of “scars” veroorsaak weens die geïnflammeerde toestand van die weefsel.


Kroniese Inflammasie word verbind aan vele siektetoestande

Dit is;

Hoe word Kroniese Inflammasie Bestuur?

  • Inflammasie word verkeerd gesien en gelees. Dit is ‘n natuurlike proses en deel van die immuunstelsel se heling en gesond word proses.
  • Wanneer inflammasie kronies word, is dit belangrik om dit onder beheer te kry. Inflammasie kan langtermyn skade veroorsaak.
