Chinese Medicine Plus Western Medicine Equals Fewer Problems With Menopause
The Access to Health Experts interview series will host health expert Dr. Laurie Steelsmith who will present her findings that the integration of Chinese and Naturopathic techniques bring significant health benefits for women’s health and menopause.

Asheville, NC - Wednesday, February 01st 2006 - Naturopathic Doctor Laurie Steelsmith will appear February 16, 2006 as a special guest as a guest on Dr. Liz Lipski’s Access to Health Experts interview series to discuss her book, “Natural Choices for Women's Health: How the Secrets of Natural and Chinese Medicine can Create a Lifetime of Wellness”. Dr. Steelsmith will discuss her findings that women can create a lifetime of optimal health and wellbeing by blending the extraordinary benefits of natural medicine from both the Western tradition and ancient Chinese teachings. The presentation will have a special focus on women's health and menopause issues.



During the free one-hour teleseminar Dr. Steelsmith will cover the following topics:



• Five Element Theory and how it keeps women’s health in balance

• Balancing Yin and Yang

• Orchestrating women’s hormonal dance: natural solutions to menopausal symptoms, Perimenopause, and PMS

• Restoring women’s liver health and essential vitality

• Creating optimal breast health



As a strong advocate of prevention and the natural power of the human body to heal itself, Dr. Steelsmith uses therapies that are primarily natural and non-toxic to address women’s health and menopause. She prescribes medicines and lifestyle changes which stimulate the patient's healing process, rather than drugs which simply suppress the symptoms and may have multiple unhealthy side-effects. It is vital in her training and practice to diagnose and treat the underlying cause of disease. Here are some of Dr. Steelsmith’s recommendations:



• Eat three meals a day, with snacks such as fruits between meals if you’re hungry.

• Eat moderate amounts of lean protein, such as low-mercury fish, skinless poultry, or

eggs; if you are vegetarian, consume adequate quantities of plant-based protein.

• Use quality fats in your diet, such as olive oil for cooking and flax oil in salad dressings.

• Eat ten servings of low-glycemic fruits and vegetables each day.

• Keep your Qi strong by eating a balance of hot, cold, warming, and cooling foods.

Former Army Intelligence General Warns We May Lose Our Healthcare Freedom
General Stubblebine, the former Commanding General of the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) is touring the country warning that Codex Alimentarius, a new set of food and supplement guidelines currently being adopted throughout world, may significantly limit the healthcare freedoms Americans currently enjoy if Codex Alimentarius is adopted in the U.S..

Asheville, NC - Monday, January 23rd 2006 - Major General Burt Stubblebine (Retired.) and Dr. Rima Laibow appeared on January 14, 2006 as a special guest on Dr. Liz Lipski’s Access to Health Experts interview series to discuss their concerns that a new set of food and supplement guidelines known as Codex Alimentarius pose a significant threat to the freedom of choice that American’s currently enjoy in purchasing healthy foods and supplements.



Some of the points made during their interview are:

- Codex Alimentarius requires that all meats, poultry, fish, fruit and vegetables must be irradiated by Dec. 31, 2009.

- Codex Alimentarius requires that all dairy cattle are to be given Monsanto bovine growth hormone by Dec. 31, 2009.

- Codex Alimentarius reclassifies vitamin and mineral supplements as toxins and dramatically limits their dosage and availability.

- Many nations have already harmonized their laws with Codex Alimentarius making it their de facto law. This has already been approved by the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and others.

- Codex Alimentarius allows significant trade sanctions to be levied against noncompliant nations.

General Stubblebine remarked, “This is a developing situation that every health conscious American should be aware of. The implementation of Codex Alimentarius is quietly going forward without the participation of the American public. Americans need to be involved if they want to insure that the choices they have today are here tomorrow”. Dr. Laibow agrees, she added, “Many of the changes that Codex Alimentarius requires are not in our best interest”.

General Stubblebine and Dr. Rima Laibow urged Americans to research the topic for themselves and get involved with the process by contacting their political representatives.

Arthritis Suffering Effectively Treated With Digestive Enzyme Supplements
Consumers and health professionals can learn how protease and digestive enzyme supplements can strengthen the digestive and immune systems, and effectively treat arthritis from “Digestive Wellness” author Elizabeth Lipski, PhD, CCN

Asheville, NC - Wednesday, February 08th 2006 - Asheville, NC, February 6, 2006 – Consumers and health professionals can learn how protease and digestive enzyme supplements can effectively treat arthritis. According to Dr. Liz Lipski, nationally-known nutritionist and author of “Digestive Wellness”, the cure for arthritis still eludes us and very often just relief from the pain becomes difficult at best. It may involve many joints or just one, and it can vary in severity from very mild to severe pain.



An estimated 15% of Americans suffer from arthritis, which is usually characterized with adjectives for inflammation such as; pain, swelling, stiffness, and redness. However, arthritis is not a single disorder, but the name of joint disease from a number of possible causes.



Dr. Lipski asserts in Digestive Wellness that arthritis has many causes: genetics, infections, physical injury, allergies, stress, and faulty digestion. Clinical work at the Transformation Enzyme Corporation now reveals that most arthritis sufferers respond well to treatment with protease and digestive enzyme supplements because arthritis is related to inflammation and digestion. Several studies have shown protease enzymes to be as effective as the drugs Methotrexate and Indomethacin for arthritis pain relief, but without the negative side-effects. By increasing support of the digestive and immune systems, inflammation is reduced.



“I’m now using the combination of protease and digestive enzymes along with other natural anti-inflammatory supplements and a low-antigen diet with my arthritis clients and I’m seeing very positive results,” said Dr. Lipski. “Many clients report a significant improvement in five to seven days.”



Dr. Lipski gives the following tips to alleviate arthritis:

• Explore a low-antigen diet. For two weeks eat only: fruits, vegetables, rice, olive oil, safflower oil, and fish.

• Get regular exercise to your ability: stretch, yoga, walking, water aerobics, etc.

• Try glucosamine sulfate and chrondroitin sulfate, and vitamin C to repair your joint tissues.

• Take digestive enzymes with each meal

• Take 1-3 protease enzymes twice daily on an empty stomach (these enter the blood stream and help reduce inflammation)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Effectively Treated With Digestive Enzyme Supplements and Probiotics
Consumers and health professionals can learn how digestive enzyme supplements and probiotics can strengthen the digestive process and effectively treat Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS) from “Digestive Wellness” author Elizabeth Lipski, PhD, CCN

Asheville, NC - Friday, January 13th 2006 - Consumers and health professionals can learn how digestive enzyme supplements and probiotics can strengthen the digestive process and effectively treat Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS). According to Dr. Liz Lipski, nationally-known nutritionist and author of “Digestive Wellness”, there is no single cause for Irritable Bowl Syndrome, rather several underlying causes including infection, food allergies, stress, and nutritional deficiencies.



An estimated 10-20% of Americans suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which is the most common gastrointestinal complaint. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is characterized by diarrhea, chronic constipation, alternating diarrhea and constipation, gas, bloating, intestinal pain, and spasms.



Dr. Lipski asserts in Digestive Wellness that the typical recommendation is to increase dietary fiber, which is helpful, but falls far short of resolving Irritable Bowel Syndrome in most cases. Clinical work at the Transformation Enzyme Corporation now reveals that most Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferers respond well to treatment with digestive enzyme supplements and probiotics because Irritable Bowel Syndrome is stress related and by increasing support of the digestive function, stress on the digestive system is reduced.



“I’m now using the combination of digestive enzyme supplements and probiotics with my Irritable Bowel Syndrome clients and I’m seeing very positive results,” said Dr. Lipski. “Many clients report a significant improvement in the first week of treatment.”



Dr. Lipski gives the following tips to alleviate Irritable Bowel Syndrome:

• Increase dietary fiber

• Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water each day

• Take probiotic supplement twice daily

• Take digestive enzymes with each meal

• Take 1-3 protease enzymes twice daily on an empty stomach (these enter the blood stream and help remove bacteria and other unwanted material)
