The Tryptophan Controversy
 
(an article by Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND, that first appeared in Preventdisease.com on November 17, 2011  )
 
 Tryptophan is one of the 20 standard amino acids, as well as an essential amino acid in the human diet. It cannot be synthesized by the human body and therefore must be part of our diet. It has also been villainized by big pharma as it competes with prescription sedatives.
 
In 1989, there was a fatal outbreak of eosinophilia myalgia syndrome (EMS). EMS is a rare autoimmune disease that causes fever, numbness, and rashes; it also affects the muscles, arms and legs. In severe cases, EMS can cause death. This outbreak of EMS was traced back to contamination from a new tryptophan processing method that one Japanese manufacturer had implemented. (Life Choice was and is not associated with this manufacturer.) In years prior, tryptophan users never reported any EMS-related symptoms; only those who were unfortunate enough to receive the "bad batch" from 1989 reported health issues. Several of those who developed EMS from the contaminated tryptophan sued the Japanese manufacturer; in fact, some even attempted to further their cause by claiming that their illness and pain continued on after the symptoms were gone. This uproar resulted in a FDA mandate banning the sale of tryptophan in the US. The media, of course, published the "health risks" of tryptophan, as well, which only fueled the fires of panic.
 
How the Evidence Stacks Up
 
As Braverman points out in his book, The Healing Nutrients Within, many of those who complained of persisting EMS issues were not screened for muscle-aching disorders, and may have had pre-existing health conditions that affected how their bodies metabolized tryptophan in the first place. Research in recent years has revealed several disorders related to "defective tryptophan metabolism and elevated tryptophan blood levels." (Braverman, p. 54) Yet, no patients with these conditions were diagnosed with EMS, which means that tryptophan alone could not have caused it. In addition, the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition studied amino acid supplementation and concluded that it is safe.
 
Where Tryptophan Stands Today
 
In the US, as of 1996, tryptophan can be obtained via prescription.In Canada, Health Canada has granted an EN number (159012) to Life Choice's L-Tryptophan. Right now, our brand is the only licensed tryptophan in the country, which means that you can buy with confidence. Our products are safe and effective.
 
Medicinal Claims
 
Tryptophan is best-known as a natural relaxer. It helps improve sleep patterns, and aids the body in the metabolization of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
 
Some Food Sources of Tryptophan
 
Food sources of tryptophan include: almonds, anchovies (salted), avocados, cheese, chicken, chocolate, cottage cheese, duck, egg, granola, lunch meat, oatmeal, pork, sausage, turkey, wheat germ, whole milk, wild game, and yogurt.
 
In Summary
 
The bad reputation given to tryptophan in 1989 was undue. The fault was not in the supplement, but in the poor choice of processing. Once again, health professionals are slowly appreciating the benefits of tryptophan supplementation. Life Choice's brand of tryptophan has been licensed by Health Canada, and is therefore safe for both retailer and consumer. Tryptophan improves sleep patterns and can be found in foods like turkey. This is why all too often, a post-Thanksgiving-dinner nap sounds especially appealing! At Life Choice, we believe in the power of tryptophan, and hope our product will make you a believer, too!

Leslie McMichael (PhD) Appointed New Sales And Marketing Manager For Life Choice Ltd.

Leslie McMichael (PhD) Appointed New Sales And
Marketing Manager For Life Choice Ltd.
 

(Calgary, AB) Dr. Eldon Dahl, the owner and founder and CEO of Life Choice Ltd is pleased to announce that Leslie McMichael, a former stunt woman with a PhD in Media Psychology, is now the new Sales & Marketing Manager for the company.
Early in her career path, Leslie put her graduate education on hold with the University of Calgary during her MSc (1996) to pursue a career in stunt work for the film and television industry in Vancouver. It proved to be an immensely exciting and rewarding 12 years.

After starting a family, Leslie decided to return to graduate school to finish what she had started, choosing the field of Media Psychology. Media Psychology seemed to be a perfect fit as it combined her undergrad in psychology with her film industry career experience, resulting in a fruitful journey into this dynamic field. 
McMichael’s dissertation was entitled “The Effects of Concussions in Stunt Performers”. Leslie studied 101 stunt performers and found empirical evidence of decreased cognitive functioning as well as poor quality-of-life due to repeated concussions. Her suspicions about the well-being of some stunt performers were correct. Leslie was able to present her findings at a Vancouver stunt community meeting to help create awareness and educate the performers. 
 
Following graduation, Dr. McMichael published two children’s books about the over-use of media and advocated to entice film production companies to film their projects in Alberta. Dr. McMichael then took a position as a General Manager with GoodLife Fitness due to her passion for health and fitness.

However, Dr. McMichael was intrigued when the position for Life Choice became available. When asked why Life Choice? She replied, "Their philosophy, 'to heal the nation, one person at a time', was exactly what I was looking for; to be a part of a company that really makes a difference in people’s lives."   
Leslie lives in Cochrane, Alberta with her husband Steve and three beautiful children.

More Vaccination Concerns

Recently, concerns about vaccination safety have been highlighted once again. The CDC has been accused of manipulating data that would have revealed a higher incidence of autism in vaccinated African-American boys. When receiving their first MMR vaccine prior to 36 months of age, these children were 3.4 times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than those who were vaccinated later.

The data was allegedly manipulated by omitting the stats of children who were not born in Georgia (the area in which the study was conducted). This cut the pool of findings by 41%, significantly skewing the reported results. These misleading results were originally published in the journal Pediatrics, which also receives direct and indirect funding from vaccine manufacturers. The study is also regularly cited as evidence of the safety of vaccines.

David Lewis, PhD, is a former senior level microbiologist with the EPA's Office of Research & Development. After he published papers questioning the scientific processes used to uphold certain regulations, he was terminated. Lewis said:

"Working for the government is no different than working for corporations. You either toe the line or find yourself looking for another way to make a living. No one would be surprised if Merck published unreliable data supporting the safety of its products. Why would anyone be surprised that the CDC is publishing skewed data to conclude that the vaccines it recommends are safe? We need a better system, where scientists are free to be honest."

Established medical practices are not infallible and can be unreliable, especially if financial gain is the priority. Natural medicine offers a better system, and Life Choice presents the best of natural medicine. The body comes equipped with the tools to heal itself; the function of medicine should be to simply help it achieve that goal. Here are some product suggestions:


Thyroid Support: A gentle, homeopathic formula designed to strengthen the thyroid gland and help with symptoms of thyroid imbalance.

HgH+ Homeopathic: Homeopathic endocrine balance, as well as anti-aging benefits.

Colloidal Silver Homeopathic: A powerful immune system boost in a safe, homeopathic formula.

Neurotransmitter Support: Removes plaque from the brain and helps restore proper function.

Adrenal Gland: Strengthens adrenal function and helps symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Thymus Gland: Increases T-cell count and boosts immune system.

CLAW-OCHMB: This formulation was designed to remove heavy metal toxicity. Vaccines carry with them heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum and the chemical formaldehyde. Those who have been vaccinated have been exposed to heavy metals, and CLAW-OCHMB is the safest way to remove them from the body. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) the average child can tolerate 0.3 micrograms of mercury. Note that a 2 month old infant receiving all 4 scheduled vaccinations (DtaP, Polio, Hib, Hepatitis B) will have a mercury level of 62.5 micrograms, 125 times higher than the EPA 'safe' level.

Suicide In The Elderly: A Disturbing Trend That Is Under Reported


Suicide In the Elderly:
A Disturbing Trend That Is Under Reported!
 
 (Calgary, AB) An article published by the American Association For Marriage And Family Therapy (AAMFT) titled Suicide In The Elderly looks at the increasing trend of suicides among the elderly.
 
In the United States, older adults make up 12% of the population, but account for 18% of all suicide deaths. This is an alarming statistic, as the elderly are the fastest growing segment of the population, make the issue of later life suicide a major public health priority.
 
In 2002 for example, the annual suicide rate for persons over the age of 65 was 15 per 100,000, this number increases for those aged 75 to 84, with 17 suicides deaths per every 100,000. The number rises even higher for those over age 85.

As the article suggest, "an obstacle faced by mental health professionals and other caregivers in reaching this group is that older adults do not usually seek treatment for mental health problems. As such, family and friends can play an important role in prevention."
 
Depression as opposed to social isolation tends to be more of a contributing factor.
 
According to the article the following are some warning signs that suicidal thoughts may be on the horizon.
 
- Loss of interest in things or activities that are usually found enjoyable
- Cutting back social interaction, self care and grooming
- Breaking medical regimens (such as going off diets, prescriptions)
- Experiencing or expecting a significant personal loss (spouse or other)
- Feeling hopeless and/or worthless
- Putting affairs in order, giving things away or making changes in wills
- Stock piling medications or obtaining other lethal means
- The most significant indicator is an expression of suicidal intent

A comment by Life Choice CEO, owner and founder Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND


Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND
What we must remember is the loneliness that seniors experience, this is a major issue, the reason can be as simple as a lack of energy or motivation to interact, or lack of sleep can cause serious depression. What we must maintain is our brain activity and this can be achieved through supplementation, one of the most popular products for seniors is our Sweet Dreams Liquid DMFMelatonin it works amazingly. Mental function is heightened through the use of Neurotransmitter Support, this formulation is backed by clinical studies helping to restore short and long term memory losses.

And for stress reduction, the best formulation backed by Duke Medical University double blind studies is our one of a kind 5 year noble root Kava, it reduces stress and helps in social situations.
