A MESSAGE FROM…
Dr. Gloria Gilbѐre – Chief Health Detective, Editor-in-Chief
Why This Publication?
Launching a new magazine is a monumental task – one which, in this case, is long over-due. I would not have taken on this challenge if it wasn’t for the support and dedication of my “team” who is as passionate about sharing the causes, effects and natural solutions to what I call the Invisible Illnesses that include, but are not limited to, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Allergic Responses, Digestive Disorders and all the Related Illnesses...Click to continue reading...
I write this investigative report not only as a recovered victim of fibromyalgia, but also as a practitioner because of the clinical experiences after guiding thousands worldwide I consult with who experience a variety of pain and inflammatory conditions, fibromyalgia the most profound. Therefore, finding adjunct natural non-toxic therapy is a must.
As four-term President of a non-profit fibromyalgia organization, and numbers of those afflicted rising to epidemic proportions – now estimated to be one in fifty people – my job of finding causes, effects and non-drug solutions is one I take very seriously both in my virtual global practice and my commitment of identifying and reporting natural solutions.
The syndrome of Fibromyalgia includes widespread pain in muscles, soft and connective tissues, and for those not afflicted or newly diagnosed, there is a lot of confusion. Fibro pain is generally relentless severe aching and/or throbbing, stabbing and shooting that feels like deep bruises. One thing that cannot be disputed, the pain is REAL and erodes quality of life for those affected. In addition, newer research shows that those affected with fibro experience associated changes in their brain chemistry that causes overstimulation of nerves or hypersensitivity to pain stimuli. Research has now led to acceptance of fibro as a legitimate condition with precise identifiable symptoms, which in prior years was considered “questionable” and possibly related to strictly emotional and/or hormonal imbalances and stresses.
Fibro pain is very different than that of arthritis – it is widespread like arthritis but occurs in the muscles, tendons and ligaments as opposed to joint pain as in arthritis. Another distinction in the two disorders is that arthritis damages tissues and bone whereas fibromyalgia does not.
In fibro, most lab tests usually come back with results reporting “you’re within ‘normal’ range”. All the exams and tests available will never completely pinpoint the exact syndrome of fibromyalgia because its causes are varied yet have many common denominators such as:
Safe Pain Alternatives to Toxic Drugs
Most people have not heard the terms Kinase or Kinase Modulators.
Kinases play a critical role in pain syndromes because they are the signals that influence transmission of the pain cascade and the signal pathways from the affected areas to the brain. The use of kinase modulating ingredients help to interrupt pain signals and I’ve found it to be extremely effective for most pain syndromes particularly those from fibromyalgia, arthritis, Lupus, etc. Interrupting pain signals not only provides soft tissue relief but also join relief. In other words, if pain signals are not getting through to the portion of the brain that sends up “red flags” that then accelerate existing pain, pain is lessened. Keep in mind this is NOT a drug so allow at least 4 weeks of taking it daily before rendering a verdict on its effectiveness – pain relief can be sooner but not as dramatic as after four to six weeks. Its effectiveness is maximized when taken with food and spread out to at least twice a day.
In addition, you MUST eliminate all foods and ingredients known to accelerate inflammation like the nightshades, msg, nitrates and sulfites. For more detailed information read my book, Pain / Inflammation Matters – the updated version is available NOW FREE to all Health Detective subscribers in the electronic form, click here to download.
Nature to the Rescue, AGAIN
This blend, Kinase Modulator, includes iso-alpha acids derived from hop plants (Humulus lupulus L.), Oleanolic Acid from olive leaf extract (Olea europaea), Rosemary leaf extract (Rosmarinus officinalis) – all these plant derivatives are known to influence kinase signaling – disrupting pain. The blend comes in soft gels and only available from the Health Matters Store at www.healthmatterstore.com – the exclusive distributor of all products used and recommended by Dr. Gloria.
Interrupting the Communication = Ending/Reducing the Pain…Naturally.
For over twenty years I've focused my consulting practice in helping clients and patients who are very reactive to foods and environmental triggers. I've used two nutraceuticals to help manage those frightening allergic responses with great success because many people, including myself, are allergic to ephinephrine, and now these natural formulas have been enhanced specifically for those affected and made specifically for the Institute for Wholistic Rejuvenation.
FIRST, Buffered C Reaction Response is a unique vitamin C powder that contains 4,350 mg. in one teaspoon. This complex formula supplies a generous dose of buffered vitamin C to not only support immune functions but to also provide that much needed antioxidant protection from simply living in a toxic world.
When I was in the midst of my nightmare with leaky gut syndrome and the resulting allergic responses to most everything (after prescription medications necessitated after a serious accident), this blend was my go-to nutraceutical along with the homeopathic blend I describe below.
High potency, highly absorbable vitamin C helps recover from an allergic response by delivering anti-inflammatory agents and oxygen to cells for a speedier recovery. At the first sign of an allergic response (red blotches, eyes swelling, throat restriction, allergy headache, etc.) I place 1 tsp. in warm water, stir, swish in the mouth about 1-2 minutes so that it begins its work sublingually, and then swallow.
According to an allergy specialist in the U.K., John Mansfield, MD, allergic responses are a result of:
Buffered vitamin C in high doses can have a dramatic effect in improving allergy symptoms, particularly responses to food, hay fever and asthma. This is due to it's ability to counteract the inflammation responses that are part of these responses. "Vitamin C is one of nature's miracles," according to Robert Cathcart MD, who pioneered the technique of taking Vitamin C to bowel tolerance (until bowels are loose) - he reverently recommends its use for allergies.
If you were to take this high potency drink daily it could compromise the enamal on the teeth. However, for the times when the urgency of an allergic response arises, it won't hurt the enamel when only used occasionally. When having to use this blend more often, or for those like me that like adding into my green smoothie daily for its overall health benefits, I always drink through a straw to avoid compromising my tooth enamel.
Vitamin C's natural antihistamine properties make it a classic allergy treatment. A daily dose of 4,000 mgs, or more, helps reduce the severity of sinus stuffiness and runny nose. When increasing vitamin C take 1,000 — 2,000 mgs every hour until you reach bowel tolerance, i.e. loose stools, and then cut back on the amount a little.
Increase the amount every day and gradually over time your body will become accustomed to the increased dose without creating diarrhea/loose stools. It can take several days to a couple of months to increase doses up to 4,000 mgs per day. However people who need vitamin C the most will find they can tolerate higher doses better than others can. Remember that the high dose of 4,350 mg is what we've found effective for relief from an allergic response - you may need to take a different dose for daily maintenance until you find the level your body tolerates.
SECOND, Allergic Response Rescue, a proprietory homeopathic blend that has a time-released action to tame the allergic response - I call it "Nature's Benedryl". At the very first sign of an allergic response to anything (food, environmental exposure, insect bite, etc.) I use and recommend what we call an "infusion dose" - place 6 drops under tongue and hold for about 2-3 minutes before swallowing - repeat three times. The allergic reaction is usually significantly tamed or resolved after 3 doses. If the allergic response is not significantly reduced, be sure to seek medical attention.
NOTE: This homeopathic is formulated to assist with any allergic response that is HOT, RED, SWOLLEN or ITCHY.
Both of these complexes are specifically formulated for the Institute and available exclusively from The Health Matters Store - the one source for nutraceuticals I use and recommend. To order click on each product within the above article.
For over twenty five years I’ve focused most of my research and client consulting on identifying causes, effects and non-drug solutions to the invisible illness syndromes known as Fibromyalgia and the related disorders. I’m proud to announce that I am serving my third term as President of the Fibromyalgia Coalition Int’ (FCI), a non-profit organization , just turned fourteen, dedicated to supporting those affected by this disorder that has many underlying causes.

If you missed my live interview on FOX NEWS now's your opportunity to tune in to the archived video.
Simply go to www.gloriagilbere.com and click on the box marked "Dr. Gloria FOX NEWS interview with Carol Alt - A Healthy You"...the video is only about 7 minutes but jam-packed with information about foods that accelerate an inflammatory condition - ANY inflammation.
If you're interested in more specifics about the health-depleting effects of nightshade foods, call the Institute for Wholistic Rejuvenation and tell them you saw me on FOX NEWS and receive my best-selling book, Pain / Inflammation Matters FREE simply for the cost of $5.95 to cover shipping. This offer is good through February -- a great gift that keeps giving...good health, that is!
After working with hundreds of clients with inflammatory disorders specifically fibromyalgia, Scleroderma, arthritis, IBS, Crohn’s, etc., to name a few, I’m amazed they are not better informed as to the health-depleting consequences of eating wheat/gluten products. I’ve written extensively about the inflammation-inducing affects of consuming foods in the nightshade genre, but gluten can cause just as many aches and pains from the inflammation they induce.
Just because you eliminated or reduced your gluten intake for a couple of weeks doesn’t mean you’ll feel the improvement in your inflammation. It takes about 90 days for the body to rid itself of the inflammation from consuming any food that “ignites” the inflammatory responses. Then, when you feel the improvement you cannot go back to old eating habits and re-introduce it – permanent relief means permanent life-style changes and dietary modifications is at the forefront...click to continue reading...
