LOMALUX DANDRUFF PILL—It’s NOT a Shampoo!

Now Available in Most Walgreens Stores

Working late one night in my 53rd story office, I felt a presence come through the window. It was an inspiration sent from God in early 1985. I grabbed a note pad and quickly wrote down several common skin/hair problems that most people struggle with. That night God was giving me faith to believe for scientific medical breakthroughs to help countless suffers. Near the top of that list was “dandruff.”

Dandruff is a common scaly scalp condition, which is often itchy. It can sometimes spread into the ear canals and onto the face, especially the eyebrows. It exists on a spectrum with scalp dermatitis (seborrhea) and psoriasis. The major problem in treating dandruff WAS that only OTC shampoos were available. NOW due to this inspired breakthrough, there is an ORAL OTC PILL available in most Walgreens stores. This unique approach to treating scalp problems, like dandruff and the above conditions, was developed through a God-inspired discovery. Two minerals, namely bromide and nickel, were discovered and used in LOMA LUX Dandruff Pill to slow down scalp overgrowth (scaling) and to reduce inflammation (redness and/or itching). Clinical testing of these oral minerals has proven their utility in a variety of scalp disorders. I have personally used them to treat thousands of patients over more than 25 years, many of them with scalp ailments like dandruff.

Effectiveness and safety are remarkable. Efficacy during the initial treatment often requires 2-4 months of once daily dosing. Clearing is frequent—the dandruff goes away! If it comes back after a few months to years—usually due to stress or cold winter weather—a repeat treatment typically induces an even longer remission, requiring only a 1-2 month second time treatment course.

Safety is also very good. Only people with nickel allergy (intolerance to costume jewelry) should use caution. These should consider a course of nickel desensitization prior to starting a full treatment dose of LOMA LUX Dandruff Pill. A protocol is available from the manufacturer, Plymouth Healthcare, Inc. Pregnant women should not use it.

I love LOMA LUX Dandruff Pill, not because my wife and I invented it, but because of how it helps family, friends and patients in such a unique way. You see medicated shampoos don’t always work. Also people get tired of using them all the time (usually smelly messy products). Then some people CAN’T use shampoos but once every week or two due to hair texture (common in African Americans).

Whether you suffer, or know someone who does, I invite you to take advantage of this unique healing OTC scalp remedy. If your Walgreens doesn’t have it, you should order it online at www.lomalux.com.

NOW FOR THE FUN PART! I am working again at what I love—dermatology. My clinic is Ft. Gibson Medical Clinic in Ft Gibson, OK. Call 918-478-2101 for appointment times and directions. I look forward to seeing you!

The Most Remarkable Medical Discovery

If you read my blog from early January, you could tell how enthusiastic I am about the newly discovered health benefits readily available from simply optimizing Vitamin D3. Truly I believe it’s NOT JUST ANOTHER HEALTH FAD! I believe this is the most remarkable medical discovery in my 40 years in the medical field.

In this blog I will explore unanswered questions about D. Later this month I will respond on the subject of possible side effects: Is there a dark side to Vitamin D? (Short answer—rarely. See disclaimer below.) But first, if you haven’t already read my first blog on Vitamin D, do so now so we can build on that foundation.

WHAT KIND OF CANCERS ARE PREVENTED BY OPTIMIZING VITAMIN D?

All kinds. Lowering cancer risk is a better way to say it, but this is the #1 reason that we should know about D. This vitamin actually works like a hormone when blood levels are optimum—fine tuning all the body’s functions, much like, for example, thyroid hormone does. So when your body is “tuned” with D, everything works better — less chronic fatigue, less chronic pain, less depression, etc. Most importantly the immune system is clearly better able to prevent infections and cancers. Not just skin cancer, ALL TYPES OF CANCER. This is vital for all of us, but even more for those with a personal and/or family history of cancer. These HIGH RISK individuals desparately need to optimize their D3.

WHAT KIND OF VITAMIND IS BEST AND HOW MUCH?

D3 is significantly more active and much more stable than D2. D2 is cheaper and often used in multivitamins, but it is clearly inferior. I recommend D3 and will discuss it exclusively from here on. How much D3 is enough? Adults over 90-100 lbs should start at 2,000 units daily. Those over 200 lbs start with 4,000 units. Elderly and dark skinned people may need more—especially if indoors most of the time. After taking this daily for three months, see your health provider and get a blood D level. (Be CONSISTENT. If you miss a day, double the dose the next day and make it up.)

WHAT BLOOD LEVEL IS OPTIMUM?

Common sense tells us to shoot for the peak biological level. This is the highest level you can get from the sun. This turns out to be 70 blood units. Therefore the usual recommendation is to get close to this—50-100 blood units is the goal. (My blood D level was 42 on 2,000 units of D3 daily. So I doubled it to 4,000 daily, and my blood level after 3 months was 80—perfect. Everyone is a little different. Work with your primary medical provider until your level is OPTIMUM.

ARE THERE OTHER NUTRIENTS THAT WORK WITH D3?

YES! If you are interested is optimizing bone growth and metabolism to prevent osteoporosis, magnesium and Vitamin K2 are critical to have in place. These enhance the deposition of calcium into the bone and not into the blood vessels where it could cause vascular disease. In fact high doses of calcium that are commonly recommended for osteoporosis can be dangerous without these balancing nutrients. D3K2 supplements are readily available now, especially in health food stores.

Disclaimer:

If you are pediatric age, have kidney problems, are pregnant or nursing, or have glandular problems (endocrine), consult with your doctor prior to optimizing your Vitamin D3 intake. Be aware that most, but not all, practicing doctors follow practices similar to the above. If your doctor does not recommend Vitamin D3, get a second or even a third opinion.

New Year’s Most Important Health Resolution

TAKE VITAMIN D3 DAILY!

At the beginning of this New Year it became obvious THE MOST IMPORTANT HEALTH ISSUE that I could discuss for 2016 is optimizing vitamin D3. Yes, D3 if FAR MORE IMPORTANT than getting a few extra pounds off, or lowering your cholesterol or even exercising more! Making this change will be FAR

BETTER, FAR EASIER AND FAR LESS EXPENSIVE than other resolutions!

What is Vitamin D3 and Why is it So Important?

Vitamin D3 is the most active form of D. This vitamin has been known for a long time to aid in the absorption and utilization of calcium, vital to bone mineralization, providing strength and integrity to the skeleton — the structural framework of the body.

What is New and Revolutionary about D3?

Literally this is the best discovery in the field of medicine during my 40 years in the medical field. About 60 years ago scientists began to study why some people got more cancer than others. They became focused on something that was obvious– that the sun’s rays actually caused skin cancers of various types—including often lethal melanomas. So our culture did a 180 degree turn and became photophobic in regard to the sun’s rays. (Tanning had been the “healthy” thing to do before that. Vitamin D was known as the Sunshine Vitamin!) What transpired during the next two generations was an emphasis on sun avoidance or sun protection.

This resulted in nearly our entire population becoming deficient (or at least borderline low) in D3. This is a fact today, unless one is actively taking D3 regularly or spending significant amounts of time outside with most of the clothes off. This on top of the fact that “normal” blood levels of D3 are clearly sub-optimal for the most important benefits—cancer prevention, depression prevention, chronic pain prevention, etc, etc.

Where does this leave us now? More, much more internal cancers than ever before. So scientists started studying why—What is causing this large increase of all types of cancers? Could a LACK of Vitamin D3 be associated with this CANCER EPIDEMIC? YES!! That is what 100’s of scientific studies over the past 20 years are pointing to. From population studies showing Northerners get more internal cancers than Southerners, to occupational studies that show office workers get more internal cancers than outdoor workers. NOW IT’S BECOMING OBVIOUS THAT THE SUN’S RAYS ACTUALLY HAVE MORE BENEFITS THAN LIABILITIES!

What is the Bottom Line/Action Point Regarding Vitamin D3? We should take OPTIMUM D3 DAILY. You can’t get that much from a multivitamin or from milk. Most of us can’t or shouldn’t get that much from the sun—due to burning or skin cancer risk. So, if we get D3 from a daily supplement, this is the safest and simplest way to go.

How Much Should We Take Daily?

I like to start adults (over 90 lbs) on 2,000 units of D3 daily. For people over age 60 and those over 200 lbs, I recommend 4,000 units D3 daily. Oh course everyone taking D3 should get a blood test to check their level after taking it for a few months. This can usually be done at your annual checkup. The optimum/cancer preventative blood level is 50-100 ng/mL. The daily dose should be adjusted until this target blood level is achieved.

Has The Sun Been Fully Vindicated?

It often seems that generations cast a particular object or even a person as either a villain or a hero. The sun’s rays have certainly played both of these roles over the years. I recommend that you get some healthy rays, but “Don’t get burned!” Use Common Sense. Plan outdoor activities for morning and late afternoon or evening. Use broad brimmed hats and other garments to cover up when you have to be out during the peak sun times. Finally, apply high SPF sunscreens to exposed skin areas (30 or higher) and reapply every 2 hours.

My Five Year Experience with Optimum Doses of Vitamin D3

I am convinced clinically that my patients who take sufficient Vitamin D3 consistently over the years are getting fewer and fewer cancers and precancers over time. Many of these patients were escalating their number of new cancers each year, and now are decreasing their numbers dramatically. However, I believe ALL CAN BENEFIT, not just high risk patients. Vitamin D3 is sold in every store in America. If you have $5 in your pocket, stop at any store and GET STARTED!

Who Benefits the Most?

Those who are High Risk for any type of cancer(s). Families that get cancers often, transplant patients, immunosuppressed patients on certain drugs that lower immunity, HIV patients, and anyone who has had a cancer or precancer previously.

Other Products That Can Help

EPIONCE makes two great sunscreens that can help prevent sun burning and prevent photo aging from chronic damaging effects of the sun’s rays. Daily Shield 50 is great for people who need a light moisturizer combined with a powerful sun protection factor. (Remember to reapply if outside very long—especially after lunch.) Daily Shield 30 is for those who need to moisturize more, and not as much heavy sun protection. (For instance, during the cold weather season.)

In Summary

Science has proven over time that the sun’s rays can be both a blessing and a curse. Therefore, moderating your exposure is the best policy. Some sunlight is clearly good! Too much is toxic in the short term and can cause cancer and advanced/premature aging in the long term. HOWEVER, TOO LITTLE VITAMIN D3 CAN INCREASE YOUR CANCER RISK FOR ALL ORGANS—breast, colon, lung, prostate, skin, etc, etc.
