Dr. P’s Primary Goals:

  • Reduce Inflammation/Remove Oxidative Stress
  • Restore the Intestinal Microbiome (the gut is the 2nd brain)  “I fee it in my gut”
  • Support the Liver (over 1450ml of blood pass through the liver every minute)
  • Support the Heart Muscle (still the # 1 cause of death male & female)
  • Increase ATP–Energy Production of Cells
  • Restore Methylation (Methylation turns good genes on and bad genes off)

The 5 R’s of Cellular Healing:

  1. Remove the Source   (Treat the causes not the symptoms)
  2. Regenerate Cell Membranes  (Mitochondria)
  3. Restore Cellular Energy
  4. Reduce Inflammation
  5. Re-establish Methylation

Dietary Suggestions:  Discussed on an individualize basis— no two people are alike

Eliminate the causes of Inflammation:

  • Sugar and Grains—sugar is secretly embedded in most every food we eat
  • Vegetable/Omega 6 Oils such as Canola, Sunflower, Safflower, Palm, Cottonseed and Soybean.  Soybean oil is 50% linoleic acid which is a strong pro-inflammatory.  These oils exist in cookies, crackers, chips, muffins, cake mixes.  They are driving Omega 6 levels through the roof and the inflammation caused by them is why Heart Disease is the # 1 cause of death in the US

Lemon Hot Water Tea

My grandmother treated numerous “patients” with lemons.  We grew up watching people come over to her house and she would make “necklaces” using lemons and garlic.

Most everyone in my family began their day with lemon tea first thing in the morning followed by breakfast.

The purpose being to “wash out” excessive bile and liver toxins accumulated throughout the night. It cleans the bile duct and heals to eliminate stomach ulcers.

I have turned my patients onto this and many to this day still do the lemon water tea

The instructions are simple:

  1. Cut a slice of lemon
  2. Put it into a teacup
  3. Pour hot water over it
  4. Drink

This post is about Lemon Tea, however, Lemon juice is a powerful antimicrobial agent, which accounts for the use of lemon essential oil in many household cleaning products, particularly those used to clean kitchen counters and cutting boards. Lemon juice has demonstrated antibacterial effects against E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and strains of Salmonella, as well as antifungal effects against Candida albicans. Another helpful thing lemons do in the kitchen is keep apples, bananas, pears, and avocados from turning brown when they’re cut prior to adding to a recipe. (Other citrus juice will do this as well, such as orange and lime.)
