What's Best for Your Breast?

Although mammography is considered the "gold standard" of breast cancer screening in America, women need to know that there are other viable options!  A healthy choice is one that is made based on balanced, unbiased information. 

Unfortunately,  literature in doctor's offices which is supposed to educate patients about certain medications and procedures often purposely omits certain vital information which if the patient knew about, might influence their decision negatively about the procedure (such as side-effects, complications, risks, relevant statistics etc).  By leaving this important information out, the patient is directed to respond the way the clinic wants them to. 

Today, politics and medicine are so inter-woven that it is often difficult to discern the potential conflicts of interest when it comes to optimal health choices. 

In the video below, Dr Mercola does a nice job explaining that thermography is an alternative means of breast cancer detection which, unlike mammography, is not uncomfortable, non-invasive, and does not expose the woman to radiation.  It is paradoxical that radiation can be a contributing factor to breast cancer yet is used to screen for it!  It is as if the breast cancer business is feeding itself more potential patients.  Think about it: if a woman has a genetic predisposition for breast cancer (the BRCA gene) and she is exposed to radiation every year during her mammography exam, how much of a greater risk does she have of developing cancer after 5-10 years of this "preventative" screening?

A study done in Denmark reported that: Screening led to 30% overdiagnosis and overtreatment, or an absolute risk increase of 0.5%. This means that for every 2000 women invited for screening throughout 10 years, one will have her life prolonged and 10 healthy women, who would not have been diagnosed if there had not been screening, will be treated unnecessarily. Furthermore, more than 200 women will experience important psychological distress for many months because of false positive findings. It is thus not clear whether screening does more good than harm. To help ensure that the women are fully informed of both benefits and harms before they decide whether or not to attend screening, there are evidence-based leaflets for lay people available in several languages on  source:

The researchers concluded that: Avoiding getting screening mammograms reduces the risk of becoming a breast cancer patient by one-third.  from and furthermore that:
Scientific articles tend to emphasize the major benefits of mammography screening over its major harms. This imbalance is related to the authors' affiliation. from

Additional options are currently being researched.  Please watch this video link below to see how Dr. Deborah Rhodes developed a new tool for tumor detection that is 3 times as effective as traditional mammograms for women with dense breast tissue

Get educated, investigate the pros and cons of all medical procedures before following conventional medical standards.  Go for second opinions but most of all, take charge of your health!

Stem Cell Solution

Our bodies have an innate capability to ward off disease and maintain health and wellbeing.  When a properly functioning immune system is in tact and the body is not only free of toxins but is also fed nutritiously and given a balance of exercise and rest, the natural state of health is generally manifested.

Unfortunately however, most people do not eat healthy food, drink clean water, get enough sleep, exercise or recreation in their lives.  As a result an energy deficit is created and the longer it is sustained the more damage can be done.

Every family has its genetic predispostions whether it is cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, or Alzheimer's disease.  Inheriting the potential for certain illnesses combined with poor lifestyle choices puts one at a higher predisposition or risk for turning a health concern into a health condition.

One of the ways that our bodies heal is by mobilizing endogenous stem cells from our bone marrow into the blood stream.  These pleuripotent cells can become any cell in the body so they have tremendous potential to repair and restore function and vitality in virtually all organs, tissues, and cells.

In fact when we have an injury in the body, cytokines or chemical messengers send out a signal which tells the immune system exactly where in the body healing is needed. 

Research has shown that taking 2 capsules per day of a blue-green algae known as Aphanizomenon flos aquae (AFA) increases the circulating stem cell count in the blood stream by 30%.  Imagine a 30% boost of the body's natural healing capability.

Today stem cell injections with similar capabilities are selling for thousands of dollars because of the promise that these cells provide.  Stem cell therapy has been demonstrated to treat over 70 different conditions.

The supplement called Stem Enhance not only boosts stem cell circulation, but is also packed with vital nutrients for overall health and wellbeing!

In an ideal world, no one would need to take supplements because we would get all the necessary nutrients from our diet.  Unfortunately, even people who eat all organic may be receiving sub-optimal levels of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other vital nutrients.  This is due to the pollution of the air and the soil, depletion of nutrients from soil due to long term farming, and poor digestion/assimilation factors (which can be caused by the way the food was prepared or the way that it is eaten, stress, genetics, or sedentary lifestyle). 

To compensate for the Standard American Diet’s (SAD) low level of nutritional value and other factors that compromise optimal nutrition, it is often necessary to supplement with various nutrients. 

Depending on the person and the condition being treated, there are specific nutritional recommendations that may be necessary to balance the body, undo the damage done (detoxification), and prevent further damage from reoccurring (anti-aging). 

For this reason, there is one supplement that MiBaSo® recommends for anyone wishing to achieve optimal health and well-being and that is Stem Enhance

Stem Enhance is a high potency patented extract of the blue-green algae known as Aphanizomenon flos aquae (AFA).  The key components in this aqua botanical are concentrated to support the innate renewal process.  The numerous reported benefits of AFA are based on scientific research, the clinical results of health care practitioners and the testimonials of real people.

By eliminating hidden nutritional deficiencies, detoxifying the body,

What's holding you back from greatness?

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Your optimal mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing could be impeded by hazardous heavy metals in your body.  If you aspire to be your best, read on, your peak performance may be one test away...

When a person comes to see a Naturopathic doctor such as myself, the first thing we need to do prior to prescribing any herbal or homeopathic supplements or any other natural therapies, is to REMOVE the obstacles to cure

Toxins in the body occupy the immune system so that it cannot properly do it's job which is to ward off both acute and chronic illness.  These toxins can at times be silent (not manifesting as symptoms) and they may also be deadly-- contributing to a life-threatening disease.  Sometimes they are not detected until after a diagnosis is made because heavy metal screening is not generally done by conventional doctors.

Some of the conditions that toxins may play an important role in include:
  • autism
  • headaches
  • muscle pain
  • joint pain
  • fatigue
  • moodiness
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • insomnia
  • allergies
  • memory/concentration problems
  • visual problems
  • water retention
  • loss of libido
  • digestive disorders
  • cancer
  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • auto-immune disorders
  • and more!
Sources of heavy metals include:

  • environmental (air pollution, carpet, air conditioning, cleaning chemicals, construction materials, paint, poisons, etc).
  • unfiltered water supply
  • pesticides on fruit & vegetables
  • vaccines
  • contaminated herbal products from India & China
  • skin contact of certain oils
  • industrial
  • hobbies & toys
  • and more

By removing the obstacles to optimal health,
you are allowing the body to facilitate its innate healing process.

Because I like to practice what I teach, I have just done my second heavy metal urine test (the first one was about 6 years ago).  The test involves taking a provocation agent which binds to the heavy metals and draws them out of the cells and into the blood stream before being filtered by the kidneys and excreted via the urine.  During the time when the toxins are in the blood stream, symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, or skin issues may temporarily become worse. 

The oral supplement is taken with a large glass of water before sleep and the urine is collected over the next 8 hours.  For most people this simply means the first morning urine.

The urine test kit is done at home and the fee includes the Fed Ex pick-up from your home or office.
Once the data is collected, a chelation program may be started according to each person's needs.

Here are the results from my recent test:

My test shows elevated Mercury and Lead*.  The mercury may be left over in my system from when I had amalgam fillings.  Although I have had them removed, some mercury is still in my gums (as seen on x-ray).  I highly recommend all my patients to remove all mercury fillings which can cause all kinds of health issues from migraines to cancer.  For more info on this topic please look up Hulda Clark's website and books.

* Sources of lead contamination may include contaminated food or water supply (lead pipes).

Since my toxicity levels are relatively low, my detox will involve taking 2 capsules a day for 3 days.
It is that simple!

Please inform the doctor if you have a sulfur allergy or sensitivity prior to testing.

Optimal health is only 1 step away.  Detox Today!  It could save your life!

Beauty Secrets Exposed!

             Have you ever wondered why Asian women have such beautiful skin?  The secret is acupuncture.  The practice of acupuncture to enhance beauty dates back to China’s Song Dynasty (960-1279 A.D.).  At that time, acupuncture for beautification was utilized by the Empress and the Emperor’s concubines.  Known in China as Mei Rong, acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is sometimes referred to as “Cosmetic Acupuncture” in the West.        

Acupuncture is the science, art, and practice of painlessly inserting needles into the body for therapeutic purposes.  The Chinese have been utilizing this holistic medical approach for thousands of years.  In the West, the application of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation is now being used all over the United States and Europe.  It is a safe, natural, and effective alternative to face-lifts and botox.  There are no adverse-effects, only side-benefits (such as clearing sinuses, relieving headaches, decreasing stress, improving mood, and enhancing sleep), unlike some of the more invasive and risky approaches that involve drugs or surgery.

Some of the benefits of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation include that it:

·         Improves muscle tone of the face and neck
·         Increases collagen and elastin production
·         Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
·         Eliminates fine lines of aging
·         Reduces sagging tendency around the eyes and jowls
·         Helps eliminate puffiness by improving metabolism and eliminating excess fluids
·         Improves hormonal balance and benefits hormonal acne and rosacea
·         Increases circulation and improves facial color
·         Moisturizes the skin by increasing local circulation of blood and lymph
·         Reduces stress evident in the face
·         Promotes overall health and well being
·         Brings out an individual’s innate beauty and radiance

The complete Acu-lift package includes topical skin care products for optimal anti-aging effects, dietary, and supplement recommendations to promote skin care, and lifestyle suggestions to decrease stress and enhance wellbeing.

For optimal results, a series of ten treatments with galvanic micro-current stimulation of the needles is recommended.  Maintenance sessions are scheduled according to the individual's needs after the initial series.

Testimonial from patient Valerie N I went for a face lift and got a lot more than that!!!!
Hi, my name is Valerie and I live in South Beach. I got a 3 visits for the face lift treatment and I got several compliments from my friends that my face "looked so much better". But also, I had recently stoped smoking and my mood was very irritated and was having insomnias. Dr. Gamliel also touched some points and that made me a lot more calm in a daily basis as well as it helped me to sleep better. I'm very happy with all the results, therefore I give 5 stars!!!!! 
Thank you Dr. G.     

Results may be seen and felt as early as the first treatment is completed, but the effects are cumulative.

Another recent advancement of this ancient beautification secret is homeopathic collagen which may be injected into the acu-points for facial rejuvenation.  This is a natural, safe alternative to botox, which works by stimulating the body to produce more collagen to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  Likewise, cosmetic body treatments, an alternative to mesotherapy, utilize homeopathic remedies for cellulite and localized adiposity (fat) reduction.  Lipotropic Vitamin B12 (containing the amino acids inositol, methionine, and choline) injections are also helping women to lose weight naturally by stimulating the metabolism and assisting in burning fat.
