Dr. Oz the truth about diets – the hidden truth

Dr. Oz the truth about diets part 2 – On February 15th, Dr. Oz the truth about diets was aired.

What viewers do not know is that Dr. Oz has been criticized in the past and was brought before a Senate hearing in 2014 for promoting miracle diets that seriously lacked scientific validity.  Dr. Oz is a Cardiothoracic surgeon which is far removed from the study of diets and nutrition.  Would you go to a Nutritionist for diet advice or a surgeon?
According to wikipedia:    A study published in the British Medical Journal on the effectiveness of Oz’s medical advice found that 46 percent of his recommendations had no scientific backing and rationale, or in some cases contradicted scientific evidence. The study showed that 39 percent had no supporting scientific evidence, while the remaining 15 percentage points went directly against scientific evidence.
In April 2015, a group of ten physicians from across the United States, including Henry Miller, a fellow in scientific philosophy and public policy at Stanford University’s Hoover Institute, sent a letter to Columbia University calling Oz’s faculty position unacceptable. They accused Oz of “an egregious lack of integrity by promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain”.
February 15th Dr. Oz Show

On this segment, Dr. Oz invited two people to the show to share their experience.  One had a very good experience and great weight loss story.  The other person said that Isagenix failed her.  The question to ask is:  did she fail the program or did the program fail her?  Did she have a medical problem that could have interfered with her ability to lose weight?  Can you judge a healthy weight loss program by the review of 2 people?  If you had seen the following following video of clients who have lost 100 up to 300 lbs what would your reaction be then?  Knowing that these clients are not being paid to promote the products?  Would you believe the people who have lost up to 400 lbs?  Or would you believe Medical Doctors in the next video?

 

What medical doctors with Nutritional experience are recommending because they have tried it

Please note that Dr. Oz did not personally try the products for the recommended time of  30 days to see what the results would be – he also omitted the peer reviewed studies  that are public on the Internet for Isagenix, In order to evaluate a company like Isagenix, you would need much more than 10 minutes on a tv show which is being hosted by a biased presenter.  Dr. Oz

The hidden truth about Isagenix on the Dr. Oz show

Two people have appeared on this show who have used Isagenix but were told they could NOT talk about it on his show.  He is paid by sponsors of the show which would be a conflict of interest.  The photo below is of one of the guests on his show.

Adaptogens Isagenix | the benefits and history

Dr Brekhman

Adaptogens Isagenix a powerful asset in your health journey

Dr Brekhman adaptogens Isagenix

Adaptogens Isagenix the benefits and History started in Russia

Dr. Brekhman’s  research culminated in the first review to be published in the West describing 15 years of research into these wondrous plants. Subsequently, he went on to write numerous scientific studies and books on Adaptogens. Dr. Brekhman’s decades-long work cemented his moniker as the “Father of Adaptogens.”

Unfortunately, because the Soviet Union was a closed society, most of Dr. Brekhman’s breakthrough research on the potential for Adaptogens to improve human health remained unknown. But with the collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991, the dam holding back all of his research (and that of Russian Olympic coach Dr. Ben Tabachnik who used Adaptogens to optimize Russian athletic performance) was gone.

Who was one of the early enthusiastic receivers of this information?  Jim Coover, Isagenix President and CEO, and John Anderson, Isagenix Founder and Master Formulator. They worked with Dr. Brekhman to spearhead the development of Adaptogen-rich botanicals, specifically targeting performance and stress support.

Because of their vision, Isagenix developed Ionix Supreme and Cleanse For Life that each contain rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea), ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), and, of course, Dr. Brekhman’s most studied Adaptogen, eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus). Whereas Cleanse for Life was formulated to support detoxification, Ionix Supreme was designed to have a more pronounced stress-modulating effect on the body and included other well-studied adaptogenic herbs such as wolfberry (Lycium barbarum), bacopa (Bacopa monnieri), and schizandra berry (Schisandra chinensis).

More recently, Isagenix developed e+, containing the novel and unique combination of naturally sourced caffeine along with an Adaptogen blend rich in eleuthero. Another non-caffeinated alternative to e+ containing the same Adaptogen blend is t+ Chai.

More specifically, and in one of his many research papers, Brekhman and his colleagues defined adaptogens as natural plant substances that:

Increase the body’s ability to cope with internal and external stresses.
Exhibit stimulating effects after both single-time use and prolonged use, leading to increased working capacity and mental performance under stressful and fatigue-inducing conditions.
Normalize the functions of the body.
Are entirely safe and have no negative side effects.
While all adaptogens are restorative to the body’s stress response and capacity to perform, certain combinations were studied by Brekhman for the exclusive purpose of boosting performance and fighting fatigue. With that purpose in mind, Isagenix has formulated the new e+ Natural Energy Shot with Brekhman’s own adaptogen formula coupled with naturally sourced caffeine—talk about the perfect pairing for energy and performance!

Adaptogens Isagenix – E+ benefits

 

The first energy-boosting adaptogen in Brekhman’s formula, and now in e+ is Eleuthero (full name: Eleutherococcus senticosus). Eleuthero, also known as Siberian ginseng, is a thin, thorny shrub native to forests in southeastern Russia, northern China, Japan, and Korea.

The research behind Eleuthero has shown it to improve endurance exercise, oxygen uptake, and overall performance in athletes. One study published in 2010 echoed just that–college-aged male tennis players who supplemented with eleuthero for eight weeks had significantly enhanced endurance time and elevated cardiovascular functions (3).

Another adaptogen in e+, Rhodiola (full name: Rhodiola rosea)—native to the arctic and mountainous regions throughout Europe, Asia, and America—also has scientific research behind it alluding to athletic improvement. A 2012 study conducted on cyclists found an improved heart rate response to exercise and a decreased perception of effort in subjects who took rhodiola one hour before exercise (4).

The adaptogens in e+ not only can help power a workout, but can also help you resist stress to stay mentally sharp after a hard day’s (or night’s) work. Rhodiola, for instance, has been found to reduce general and mental fatigue in doctors working night shifts (4).

One of the most recent reviews of adaptogens, published in October 2012, gives cause to always have e+ on hand when a pick-me-up is needed. According to the review, adaptogens “induce increased attention and endurance in situations of decreased performance caused by fatigue and/or sensation of weakness” (5).

The bottom line is that adaptogens are plant substances that help the body to better handle external and internal stressors, they enhance the body’s ability to perform physically, and they increase energy and mental alertness. Israel Brekhman spent his lifetime and career studying adaptogens and how we can use them to prime and protect the body. With e+, Isagenix is taking some of Brekhman’s best work and giving people the tool to take themselves and their health to the next level.

In the chaotic world of Health and Wellness, there are many opinions on Obesity, Nutrition, and one thing is constant. The stats are growing and solutions must be found.

I attended a conference and listened to Krista Varady, Ph.D. (Nutrition) who is an assistant professor at the UIC College of Applied Health Sciences.  She was selected to lead a clinical evaluation of Isagenix .  She is a prolific researcher with more than 30 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Varady has devoted much of her research to investigating novel strategies to facilitate weight-management and decreasing cardiovascular disease risk in obese subjects . She is also one of the pioneers in researching alternate-day and intermittent fasting.

The study compared a dietary plan using certain components of an Isagenix weight-loss system to a “heart-healthy” dietary plan based on nationally recognized guidelines  This dietary plan was modified to include intermittent fasting along with supplementation of a flavored drink as a placebo.

The 10-week study evaluated the effects of both dietary plans in combination with intermittent fasting, or “Cleanse Days,” on body weight, body composition, cardiovascular risk factors, oxidative stress markers and inflammation in 54 obese women with a body mass index above 35.

Obesity studies ~ Obesity 2012

Obesity is a complex, multifactorial condition requiring a cross-disciplinary approach to its study. For example, growing evidence suggests that more attention should be placed on visceral obesity because of its unique implications on health.

Results of Study

The study found that the subjects in the Isagenix group had superior results across several clinical parameters in comparison to the “heart healthy” group, with respect to adherence, including body composition, body weight, body fat, cardiovascular risk factors, and oxidative stress markers. One of the most impressive results was that of up to double the visceral fat lost along with improved cardiovascular risk markers in the Isagenix group in comparison to the “heart healthy” group.

Isagenix peer reviewed studies

There are now 3 peer reviewed studies for Isagenix.

Isagenix attracts the top people in their field.  Their Scientific Board now includes Dr. Michael Colgan  and

Dr. Dennis Harper

Dr. Harper has been in general medical practice for 20 years and was instrumental in getting the DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act) implemented in 1994. Dr. Harper is a voting member of the American Osteopathic Association, President of Physicians for Progressive Medicine, Chairman for the licensing board for the state of Utah and a Fellow for the Federation of State Medical Boards. Dr. Harper is the author of “Cleansing for Life: Nature’s Best Kept Health Secret.”
Dr. Harper turned to investigate and implement into his practice natural alternative methodologies to addressing health and wellness for his patients 18 years ago. He is a pioneer among traditionally trained doctors marrying the best of both worlds, traditional medical practices and natural “alternative” approaches.
