About Chris Daino

Concerned with the amount of degenerative diseases and other illnesses that occur due to nutritional deficiencies caused by faulty diet, www. mcvitamins.com was created in 1999. McVitamins continually researches information and nutritional supplements to help solve these problems

B1 Deficiency, it mimics so many diseases

I have known B1 (thiamine) to be such an important vitamin.  It is so involved with your health.

But then I found an educational video by Dr. Eric Berg, D.C. about what a deficiency of B1 will do.   It is very informative.

I think with so many people depleting B1 by using caffeine, sugar, medical drugs, processed foods etc. etc.  that this is important to know.   I can affect the conditions such as  lack of tears, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, and even memory problems.   But, etc. etc. etc.

Here is the video:

Dental Work & Surgery Nerve Problems?

It is common for people to experience different nerve damage symptoms after dental work. This is especially true of dental surgery and implants.

During the procedure, the nerve can be damaged. Yes, it most probably will get better in a few months if it isn’t extensive damage.

But are you willing to put up with numbness, and pain, tingling, etc. for 6 months? Why not give your body a head start in restoring your nerve health.

Are you being sold “snake oil”?

I was watching a documentary about medical myths.   One really got my attention.

What is snake oil?  Snake oil is actually Chinese medicine.  It is created from a snake and used to help many things including sore muscles.  it appears that this was brought to American by the Chinese workers on the Trans Continental Road.  It was a huge back breaking job.  They used snake oil to help with their sore muscles.

It became popular.   But in the 1916 there was a salesman who was selling this.  Clark Stanley’s Snake Oil Liniment, the only Western produced snake oil known to have been examined.   It was tested and found not to include any snake oil. It a shoddy substitute.   He got arrested.

So the press had a field day and “snake oil” was now used to describe anything that  was deceptive telling people it would cure their ills when it wouldn’t.  I’ve even heard the term applied to the various alternative medicines available for health.

Why do I ask if you are being sold snake oil?  Well the body needs forty nutrients to be able to create and sustain health.  if you don’t have one of these, you can create deficiencies which result in 100s of chemical reactions not happening  So, we take vitamins and minerals to make sure we get what we need when we know our diet isn’t sufficient.   Fake food is in itself “snake oil”  as they promise to give you nutrition but fill the box with chemicals and additives not needed by the body.

But, what about your supplements?  Are you taking fake nutrition?  Are you taking Whole Food VItamins, food based that actually use food to give you what you need. Or are you taking “snake oil”?   Are you getting laboratory created similar sort of vitamins made of petrochemicals.

Health Benefits of Food

Have you noticed that most health articles are concerned with stopping a disease that the person has – or attempting to prevent a disease – which is actually stopping disease before it happens. And it all sounds scary.

What about we take our attention away from just fighting disease and start working towards health to create a healthy body.

Do you want to stop gum disease and decay, or just have healthy teeth?

Do you want to stop an infection after one starts, or just have a healthy immune system that prevents infections from happening?

The list of things that a healthy body creates goes on and on. 

The body runs on protein, carbohydrates and fats and 40 other nutrients that cannot be made in the body. These are 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, 10 amino acids & the essential fatty acids. The nutrients you need that cannot be made in the body all come from food.

What do you use to build a healthy body? Food. Sometimes if you can’t get enough of the nutrients you need from food, you might have to supplement. But you would do that with whole food supplements, not the artificial type that is made in a laboratory.

There are diets for overall health as well as diets for specific health issues. See below.  But addressing an issue and then continuing to create health eliminates the need for special diets in the future. 

You should eat for your health, not your taste buds.

Improve your diet & eat wisely – this is the best and least expensive form of “health insurance”. Building health is a lot more fun than trying to stop disease.

Another new study… Low Carb Diets Will Shorten Your Life?

I guess the keto diet is becoming too popular and people are getting healthier.   Now their is a study done – contradicting earlier studies – that you need to eat more carbs for health??

New Scientific Study… what does it mean?  

Every other day it seems, there is a new study that is published which states that something is good for you or bad for you. It could be a study about food, or supplements, or how easy it is for you to get some dreaded disease. And there are many times that the study contradicts an earlier one.  And the next study contradicts that one. Do we believe them?

You need to know that studies are paid for by tax dollars and by companies that have a vested interest in the study. They are looking to prove that you should take a certain drug, or prescription vitamin, or that you should be wary of a specific way of living.

Vested interest means that they may be out to prove their hypothesis so they can sell you a drug or prevent you from using the competitor’s product.

Then there is the overwhelming problem, that one study doesn’t prove a thing. There are so many variables, that you can’t possible expect that a 100-300 person study (people who have been picked for the study) to show something conclusively.

So next time you decide you should not take something due to the “latest” study. Read up what it really is. Find out the science behind the nutritionally sound concept of nutrition or what your body needs to function.

Or investigate the actual studies and what other studies have been done – you can find them on PubMed.com

And here is a educational video by Dr. Berg giving you information about this latest study on Carbs 

Be Careful Out There by Doug Kaufman (KnowtheCause.com)

I don’t usually go to doctors. About 13 years ago, I revised my life insurance plan and a medical person came to my office and asked many questions, then drew my blood and got a urine sample. A few weeks later I learned that my request was denied because my cholesterol was far too high at 226. I argued my case and the large insurance carrier chose a local physician for me to see who performed a cardiac stress test

I passed the test with flying colors. I’m still alive, even with excess cholesterol swimming through my bloodstream. Imagine that! My only exposure to physical examinations prior to that was in 1972, as an exit physical exam from the U.S. Navy. I do not ever get screened for cancer, because I believe that detection tests are often.inaccurate and because of that, I believe that cancer is being overdiagnosed.

So often, I believe that going to a doctor for a minor health problem is like going to a mechanic when the red “oil” light appears on your dashboard. Doctors and mechanics are paid to find problems and they are both very good at that. Perhaps a changed diet and 3 quarts of engine oil will fix most minor problems.

Processed Food and Your Health

I have a quiz on my site to check on certain things that might stop someone from restoring health to their nerves.   One question is do they eat processed foods.

Actually, so many people say they don’t eat processed foods, that I begin to wonder if they know what that means.   However, what I want to communicate is that it is so important to read labels when buying food.  No, eggs, vegetables and meat are probably okay – well unless they come packages and then I would still check the labels.

Here is an article on checking labels…

How About Not Putting Toxins in Your Body

How?  One way is not to eat anything with toxins.  Interesting idea isn’t it.

So one of the dubious foods that are toxic, or worse, we don’t know that interfering with food will do.  I’m talking about GMOs.   Genetically Modified Organisms, doesn’t sound very healthy to me.

Here is some links that will take you to:

And so you know why – what is GMO

A Non-Toxic Cleaning Product

Yes.  I never know how much cleaning made me feel tired and … well, I just didn’t want to do it.  It was the chemicals that I used.   Even when I bought brands in the health food store that were more natural then the many very toxic chemicals normally found on the shelves.

Here is an article on a Cleaning Product derived from a mix of essential oils.   I have used it myself and I enjoy using it.   It not only cleans well, but it smells great.

Cleaning with Essential Oils, Cleaning without Toxins

Toxins = Bad Health

There are so many ways that toxins can get into your body and disrupt the normal body functions.   Yes, you can breath it, you can ingest them, you can even get it through your skin.’

Wonder what is in your beauty products?  What is in that shaving cream?  What is in the make up or skin softener?  What about the cleaning products?

What about the food you eat?   Not only can it have lots of toxins from the way it was grown, but now most vegetables are genetically modified …. GMOs.

Start somewhere and start eliminating the toxins from constantly being used by the body instead of what it should be using for health.

Here’s an article on GMO in case you wonder about buying non-GMO products but think they are too expensive.  Think about how expensive bad health is.
