Good Oils For Dry Skin


“Dry skin is a classic sign of your body’s need for essential fatty acids, the “good” oils like oils from fish or seeds and nuts.”

 If you can rub your arm and a small amount of friction causes skin to slough off, what should you do? Dry skin can range from mild to severe, slightly uncomfortable to very painful. Sure you can use moisturizers and lotions, but many contain toxic chemicals which are absorbed through your skin. Lotions can provide temporary relief, but they definitely don’t fix the problem.

Dry skin is a classic sign of your body’s need for essential fatty acids, the “good” oils like oils from fish or seeds and nuts. We become deficient because our diet may not include enough good oils. Don’t feel too bad, many people lack essential fatty acids until they learn how to add them to foods and how to  supplement regularly.Good Oils For Dry Skin

Knowing how much and how often to supplement is important too. Here’s an example. My brother-in-law Jerold supplements regularly with Biomega-3 Liquid, a pleasant lemon flavored fish oil that’s easy to take. He  was taking a tablespoon daily for overall health and prevention. But the winter temperatures caused him to experience dry and cracked fingers. He said his fingers were so rough that when he tied his necktie, the silk would fray due to his cracked fingers. So in addition to his daily dose of 1 tablespoon, he added an extra” tablespoon of Biomega-3 Liquid daily on a salad. In 2 weeks the cracks were gone. Once he reached sufficiency he cut back to 1 tablespoon daily.

Here’s a similar story. A friend I’ve known for 18 years recently told me how he was addicted to lip balm. He used it every winter as long as he could remember. His lips got so chapped he never went anywhere without chapstick. He began to show an interest in wellness and about two years ago he started taking essential fatty acids regularly a blend of oils rich in Omega-3, 6 and 9’s. One wintry day he observed someone applying lip balm, he suddenly thought to himself I haven’t used lip balm for two winters! Even though he was taking essential fatty acids for vascular health, to his surprise, essential fatty acids prevented dry chapped lips.

I have heard plenty of stories how essential fatty acids in the right dose have helped dry skin, but I hope you get the point. Your skin can tell you a lot, if you pay attention. Your body has approximately 100 trillion cells. Each cell is surrounded by a thin barrier like membrane. Essential fatty acids help to keep that membrane soft and permeable, meaning healthy nutrients can get into the cells and toxins can  leave. A deficiency of good oils can cause the cell membrane to become “sluggish.” Not only will nutrients have trouble getting in, many of the everyday toxins we are exposed to can become trapped in the cell.

If your cells are unhealthy, you will be too. We can clean and revive our cells by feeding them what they need. Beyond cell membranes, essential fatty acids are needed for hormones, immune function, pain and inflammation reduction, blood sugar stabilization as well as healthy heart and blood vessel function.

Good Oils For Dry SkinEssential fatty acids and particularly fish oil is the number one class of anti-aging supplements. You can order essential fatty acids directly from your clinic right here on this page. To get started try Biomega-3 Liquid, popular because of its pleasant lemon flavor. Start with one tablespoon daily; if you don’t see results in 2 weeks, add another tablespoon.

It’s good to rotate oils, so you may also try Mixed EFAs, a blend of oils from seeds and nuts. Start with one tablespoon daily. It’s odorless and tasteless, so you can also apply it topically as a moisturizer that is safe for your skin to absorb.

Life Changing Allergy Relief


There are natural alternatives that target the cause of allergies making it possible to actually avoid completely or diminish allergic reactions.

“Do you have seasonal allergies?” Perhaps you are one of six people officially “diagnosed” with allergies. Sometimes mild, sometimes severe, people with allergies suffer the symptoms of runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing or asthma. Spring, summer and even the fall can bring on the avalanche of symptoms not to mention the waiting lines at the pharmacy. They know the drill, they tough it out every season… allergy pill after pill, treating only thImagee symptoms… finding short term relief but not without side effects.

Well if you want a way out, there are natural alternatives that target the cause of allergies. By addressing the body’s immune system and other natural functions, it’s possible to not only find relief from symptoms but to actually avoid completely or greatly diminish allergic reactions.

Allergies can be triggered by pollen from trees, weeds, and grasses. Winds carry pollen and spores through the air. Ragweed pollen travels great distances. It has been found in the air over the ocean as far as four hundred miles from shore!

But why are YOU reacting to substances that don’t seem to bother others? While there are many factors involved, the most important culprit can either be an overloaded, over stimulated or weakened immune system. It can be overloaded with toxins, chemicals, metals or what is commonly called an “excess body burden.” A weakened immune system can be the result of a deficiency of nutrients. Also increases or decreases in hormone production play a big role as well as adrenal function. Nutrients like zinc, vitamins C, D, B complex, essential fatty acids, probiotics and a host of botanicals can help feed the body to activate and rebuild glands and organ systems.

Typically, when I see someone with allergic symptoms, I always like to start with A.D.P. which is emulsified oil of oregano. The ADP’s antimicrobial properties help clean up the digestive system and reduces the immune response to seasonal allergens such as pollen, dust, animal hair, etc. I have seen many people with all kinds of allergic symptoms respond to ADP  in ways I would have never thought possible. It’s the best detox I’ve ever used. You can ask Dr. Godo’s office about the use of ADP for your allergies. Also talk to Dr. Godo about other healthy nutrients to feed the body naturally and reduce the release of inflammatory substances, such as histamines.

A phytonutrient called quercetin is found in apples, tea, onions, red grapes, citrus fruit, tomatoes, broccoli and other green leafy vegetables, and many berries. Quercetin has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity by inhibiting both the production and release of histamine and other allergic inflammatory mediators. Bio-FCTS by Biotics Research Corporation combines quercetin with buckwheat culture, vitamin C and other antioxidants like green tea extract and citrus bioflavonoids.

ImageI know a woman who was forced into an environment with cats, to which she was severely allergic. The day before and the day when she visited the home, she took 5 Bio-FCTS, 3 times a day. Even though the exposure was unavoidable and constant for over 24 hours, she was completely symptom free.

Also, essential fatty acids affect the health of cell membranes and have natural anti-inflammatory properties which are a major benefit with allergies. Where do many of the airborne allergens enter the  body? In the mucus membranes that line nasal and bronchial cavities. So we can support healthy mucus membranes function with good essential oils.

These are healthy and life changing ways to find relief from seasonal allergies or any chronic allergy. Instead of the same old drill, make NEW choices. Take a Wellness approach now and you may never dread allergy season again.

The “Silent” Cause Of Chronic Pain


Over the counter pain medication still dominates as the #1 selling class of drugs.  If you add into that figure the number of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, we are talking about a lot of people experiencing pain and inflammation. Maybe that’s you or someone close to you. Dealing with chronic pain is like a puzzle; and the pieces have to be systematically examined until the major one is discovered.

One piece is the need for essential fatty acids. Another piece is the epidemic deficiency of vitamin D.  (As a side note:  I just found out that the standard blood test for vitamin D is the number one test ordered by physicians in the United States.)

Another piece to this puzzle most clinicians are less likely to be sensitive to is silent  infections.  According  to the journal “Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases,” a 1991 article disclosed that 70% of patients with chronic inflammatory arthritis’s are carriers of “silent infection.”  Bacteria, yeast/fungi, amebas, protozoa, and other “parasites” are an unknown cause of neuromusculoskeletal inflammation. Incidentally, when we talk about parasites we’re not just talking about worms.

Also dysbiosis is the condition of having microbial imbalances on or within the body. Dysbiosis is most prominent in the digestive tract or on the skin but can also occur on any exposed surface or mucous membrane such as the vagina, lungs, nose, mouth, genitourinary tract, sinuses, ears, nails, or eyes.

So as we piece together the puzzle, ultimately we are seeing GI dysregulation. And whether it is from allergens like gluten or dairy or the immunological battle between white blood cells and the infectious agents, the GI tract becomes compromised. Toxins in the form of antibodies, endotoxins, or even metabolic byproducts are released into the blood- stream and new levels of inflammation are mounted to combat the invaders.

One of my favorite authors, Dr. Alex Vasquez has written a great paper on this subject. He makes a significant point.  I want you to hear this loud and clear: microorganisms can cause disease, specifically pain and inflammation, even when they are not causing obvious infection.”  Dr. Vasquez lists 14 different mechanisms articulating why these organisms, we’ll call them “the bugs”, can cause serious biochemical/ immunological patterns that end in inflammation and or serious pain.

The organisms may not be pathogenic in origin but their presence causes distinct changes in physiology.  The body adapts or compensates to its surrounding and as it does, often times, healthy tissue is damaged.  This is one of the mechanisms for leaky gut and inflammation.

Also, Dr. Vasquez describes something called NF-kappaB.  It’s like an amplifier that can turn pain and inflammation up or down. “NF-kappaB activation is a major factor in the production of proinflammatory messengers and in the induction of proinflammatory enzymes.

The link between dysbiosis and systemic inflammation becomes clear: gastro- intestinal bacterial overgrowth leads to excess production and absorption of toxins. This initiates immune dysfunction and a systemic proinflammatory response. This means reducing bacterial overgrowth or reducing the “bugs” can help cure otherwise  “incurable disease.”  The beauty is that we don’t have to use harmful agents with side effects.

So what do we do with all this information? Clinicians who understand dysbiosis and the mechanisms involved look for ways to integrate this information when treating patients with gas, bloating, alternating constipation/diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome,  fibromyalgia,  chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, severe allergies, arthritis, and autoimmunity.  In fact the more unusual the case, the more we need to focus on the gut.

Medical labs have tests that can evaluate digestion, identify, and even culture the bugs to see what may be present.  This is where your Dr. Godo can help. He can order the tests or he may get you started with a detox program to reduce the overgrowth of “organisms.”

Many people are surprised at how well their body responds. Thousands of people see a major reduction in pain and inflammation without the side effects of drugs. You don’t have to live with pain. Make an appointment with Dr. Godo and see how you respond.  The point is that you can do something about pain and inflammation.
