Auditory Neuropathy, What
This type of neuropathy is also referred to as Auditory
Dys-synchorony(AD) or Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD). It is sometimes referred to as neural or nerve deafness.
It is a problem with the auditory nerve. With this type of hearing loss, the inner ear receives sounds normally, but the information is not transmitted via the auditory nerve to the brain. The sound may be disorganized or the nerve may not process the sound.
The result is hearing loss to some degree from the mild to profound, it is not predictable. It can create difficulty understanding spoken words, especially in noise. Sounds tend to fade in and out. Hearing can fluctuate from day to day or even from hour to hours.
Causes or risk factors
Auditory neuropathy can be caused by trauma or disease. The most common causes are lack of oxygen (anoxia) at birth, certain drugs especially those used to treat obstetric complications, ototoxic drugs (drugs that have a toxic effect on the ear or its nerve supply).
Ototoxic drugs include antibiotics such as gentamicin, loop diuretics such as furosemide and platinum-based chemotherapy agents such as
cisplatin. A number of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) have also been shown to be
Auditory neuropathy can also result from infectious diseases, immune disorders, neurological disorders such as
Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome (which is believed to be genetic).
Medical management involves either the use of hearing aids or cochlear implants to improve hearing.
Ruling out nerve damage - the fact that that impulse are not reaching the brain may mean that the auditory nerve was in some way damaged. In this case, it may be addressed using nutrients to allow the body to build healthy nerves.

Critical Information on Sinusitis and Mold Related Disease
Brain Fog, Neurotoxicity, and the Link to Stachybotrys Chartarum
The medical community is just beginning to understand the health consequences of chronic mold exposures. Common health effects reported by individuals living in moldy homes include recurring flu like symptoms, coughing, chronic bronchitis, sore throat, diarrhea, fever, headache, chronic fatigue, rhinitis, neurological symptoms, and general malaise.
Symptoms typically resolve after the source of the mold exposure is removed, although some patients may continue to express cognitive and behavioral symptoms. This may be due to a buildup of mold and its toxins in the body. Approximately 70 percent of people with confirmed exposure to toxigenic molds exhibit significant neurotoxicity.
This phenomenon is likely related to a specific mold toxin. It is believed, that toxins released by an indoor mold called Stachybotrys Chartarum are extremely toxic to nerve cells. In addition to being neurotoxins, they suppress the immune system, leading to decreased levels of antibodies and lymphocytes.
Stachybotrys Chartarum (SC), is a greenish black mold that grows on material with high cellulose content, such as wood, straw, hay, cardboard, wicker, fiberboard, etc., particularly when these materials become water damaged. It requires a fair amount of dampness to flourish. SC is typically dark in color and wet and slimy to the touch. It can also appear grayish or sooty, with a powdery appearance. However, it important to remember that molds cannot be identified visually as many molds are similar in appearance. The only definitive way to identify species is by examination of the spores under a microscope.
One of the reasons mycotoxins are so toxic is they can cross directly into your brain. Olfactory neurons are in direct communication with your brain. Anything you have inhaled or smelled, even if it doesn’t have an odor, can go directly into your brain via these olfactory neurons. Mycotoxins have even been found to enter your brain via optic muscles and optic nerves. This creates the potential for mold-induced sinusitis to lead to serious brain complications if left untreated.
Mycotoxins may have a greater effect on the brain than currently believed. A recent study has observed that certain mycotoxins have a substantial effect on GABA receptors in the brain. GABA receptors are the major therapeutic target of tranquilizers and anesthetist. Mycotoxins may have a tranquilizing effect on part of the brain and a cramp-inducing effect on other parts. This supports the claims that mold can cause chronic fatigue.
It has been suggested that molds may play a role in the development of certain diseases such as, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and Alzheimer’s. The truth is, when your immune system is impaired, almost anything can happen in terms of negative health affects. When mycotoxins and other pathogens invade and colonize within the body a slew of serious chronic illnesses emerge. Every cell and organ is affected by degeneration and necrosis with continued exposure to mycotoxins. More studies are needed to find the link between mold and neurological disease.
If you suspect your problems are due to mold, take action immediately. When mold exposure is left untreated, it can lead to neurological disease and that can destroy your quality of life. Testing for the presence of mold and starting a antifungal wash regiment are the first steps to gain control over the problem.

Dental Health & Dental Care
Most of us have been told that the way to have healthy teeth and gums is to brush after every meal, floss our teeth and go to the dentist regularly and get a hygienist to scrape plaque off our teeth every six month.
The biggest question is does this help? Do you still get cavities and have to get filings? Do they still talk to you about periodontal disease? And if you get periodontal disease (which means actually "around the tooth" disease), do you get the feeling that the one day you didn't floss was the evil act that created this problem.
I don't think so.
One day I realized that there was something wrong with the modern dental care. Not once did I hear about nutrition to keep teeth & gums healthy (except maybe the milk industries promotion to "drink milk" for the calcium). Most of the time, if nutrition came up, it was about sugar in the diet. Now, yes, sugar can deplete the body of a lot of nutrients, but does it cause decay?
The dental viewpoint is that bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, it produces acids that destroy the tooth enamel. You then get tooth decay.
Here is the problem with that theory:
1) Bacteria does not consume sugar or flour as they lack nutrients. (hint: don't eat sugar and flour if you want good health)
2) Other foods create bacteria - milk, vegetables, fish, meat and fruit - have you ever been told not to drink milk or eat vegetables because it causes tooth decay?
So, what causes tooth decay?
Demineralization of the tooth - not enough minerals in the diet, not enough fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, & K). Now that makes more sense.
Here are two articles about this; the first article talks about the research that was done - in 1922.
Why haven't we heard about this before? 1922?

It is interesting to note that the hypothalamus (in your brain) is supposed to signal the parotid gland (both sides of your face near the jaw line) to not only re-mineralize the teeth, but to clean them.
Or go right to the horse's mouth and read what Dr. Weston Price has to say. He did the research -

Need an Energy Drink that Isn't Bad for You?
Many people use some form of stimulant to get them going in the morning or keep them going in the afternoon.
Now, there is a simple, safe and effective solution to being bright and alert (without any jitters) and having all the energy you need for the whole day.
Real Energy was developed to give your body real, immediate energy, and it won't raise blood sugar levels. It has ingredients that actually support the body's ability to produce energy at the cellular level.
Here is what one of our customers had to say about using it:
"This is a great and healthy way of improving your energy! I'm able to keep a level (without dropping) energy level throughout the day, and I noticed that my energy levels improved during my 30 minute treadmill run.
"I don't get any jittery sensations from this product at all, and I have experienced improved mental clarity.
"I would also say that with an estimated 32 servings per bottle it saves you in the long run, being that other energy drinks give you a crash after a while, and it causes a dependency on it, so a person drinks more throughout the day which equals more money spent."
From Jose V. in California
RHP Real Energy was developed to support improved mental clarity, alertness and energy with no letdown and no tiredness.
