The Biggest Moneymaker of all Time: Cancer, and Why the Profiteers Don’t Want a Cure

'Dr Max Gerson, who in 1938 made a startling discovery that his safe natural treatment for cancer patients held enormous promise. He was getting people well by using something that could not be patented – vegetables. At this time in history, a bill was appropriated for 100 million dollars to anyone who could show promise and results in treating cancer. Dr Gerson in 1946 presented 5 terminal cases and 5 additional patients’ records showing his effective treatment and cure of all of these cases. Well, guess what? The Pepper-Neely bill was defeated by four senators who were medical doctors.'

Sweden Becomes First Western Nation to Reject Low-fat Diet Dogma in Favor of Low-carb High-fat Nutrition

'Dr. Eenfeldt also translated an article from a local Swedish newspaper covering the committee’s findings:

Butter, olive oil, heavy cream, and bacon are not harmful foods. Quite the opposite. Fat is the best thing for those who want to lose weight. And there are no connections between a high fat intake and cardiovascular disease.

On Monday, SBU, the Swedish Council on Health Technology Assessment, dropped a bombshell. After a two-year long inquiry, reviewing 16,000 studies, the report “Dietary Treatment for Obesity” upends the conventional dietary guidelines for obese or diabetic people.

For a long time, the health care system has given the public advice to avoid fat, saturated fat in particular, and calories. A low-carb diet (LCHF – Low Carb High Fat, is actually a Swedish “invention”) has been dismissed as harmful, a humbug and as being a fad diet lacking any scientific basis.'


This Is What Happens In Your Stomach When You Consume Packaged Ramen Noodles With a Deadly Preservative

'Ramen noodles contain Tertiary-butyl hydroquinone (TBHQ), which is a byproduct of the petroleum industry and food additive frequently to preserve cheap processed foods. It is one of those chemicals that is neither digestible or beneficial in any way for your body. A gastrointestinal specialist conducted an experiment with a time lapse video inside the stomach, comparing both fresh and preserved ramen noodles. After two hours of digestion, the results were staggering.'


Do You Need A Healthicine?

Do You Need A Healthicine?

'Healthicines increase healthiness. Medicines decrease illness. It's easy to say, but it can be very difficult to understand clearly. Are "alternative medicines" healthicines or medicines? Are vitamins healthicines, or medicines? Are herbal medicines healthicines or medicines. Let's begin with some simple examples, where the lines are very clear.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. An apple is a healthicine, not a medicine. You can eat as many as you want. Your children can eat them. Apples don't make you healthy 'quickly', health is created slowly, "an apple a day". Apples don't fight specific illnesses, they improve general healthiness. If you are sick, an apple won't make you well and if you eat too many, you will get diarrhea. But if you are sick, an apple a day will still help you be healthy. You don't need a prescription to buy an apple.'

Scientists use honey bees' propolis to treat aluminum toxicity

'Honey bees are tireless workers, committed to sustaining life for all through pollination of various plants and crops. Honey bees are effective natural chemists as well. By collecting resins from leaf buds and vegetables, they are able to produce propolis.

Bees create propolis from their environment in order to disinfect their beehives, seal cracks, build panels and even embalm intruders. Propolis is an effective antimicrobial agent, useful for disinfecting. Humans can collect and utilize propolis for personal health reasons.

Scientists from Jiwaji University, Gwalior, India, have found promising evidence showing how propolis treats aluminum toxicity.'


10 Reasons Why You Need Vitamin B12


'Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient that keeps the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy. It is involved in the metabolism of every cell in the human body, and is necessary for DNA synthesis and regulation, as well as fatty acid synthesis and energy production. The benefits of vitamin B12 start in the womb, are vital during infancy, and protect you from disease throughout your life.

Not getting enough B12 causes tiredness, weakness, changes in elimination, loss of appetite, and weight loss—all symptoms of megaloblastic anemia, a condition characterized by very large red blood cells. It comes on slowly, especially when compared to that of other types of anemia, so can be hard to diagnose in its early stages.' 


How the Cycles of Light and Darkness Affect Your Health and Wellbeing

'While it may not be immediately obvious as to why, light is actually crucial to your health. I've always believed that you could have the ideal lifestyle with respect to the food you're eating, the water you're drinking, and exercise, but if you don't sleep well, you're just not going to be optimally healthy.

Poor sleep inevitably leads to health problems. Maintaining a natural rhythm of exposure to daylight, and darkness at night, is an essential component of sleeping well.

Researcher Dan Pardi, who is employed by the Behavioral Sciences Department at Stanford University, also works with the departments of neurology and endocrinology at Leiden University in the Netherlands.

"I look at how sleep deprivation, or not getting enough sleep or the amount of sleep that you need, can influence decision making and cognitive processes like reaction time, memory, impulsivity, and how that relates to food choice," he explains.'


Five Things Everyone Can Grow on Five Square Feet

VRM: Alternative Cancer Cures That Work & Your Government Still Can’t Ban them From Use!

ED NOTE: Bookmark and save this lengthy list-article for future reference. It could help save you or a family member or friend's life someday.

'A hundred years ago less than 1 in 1000 people died of cancer. According to the World Health Organization ‘Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and accounted for 7.6 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths) in 2008. Deaths from cancer worldwide are projected to continue to rise to over 11 million in 2030.’

“If I am able to help only one cancer sufferer to escape the excruciating and inescapable pain of death caused through treatment by ‘orthodox methods,’ I have done something worthwhile.”'

-Maurice Natenberg, author of ‘The Cancer Blackout‘


Forget the Flu Shot: Hand-washing and Elderberry Extract Are the Best Defenses Against the Deadly Swine Flu Outbreak

'H1N1, or “swine flu” is sweeping across the country, prompting the mainstream media to trumpet, “DOOM APPROACHES!!! GET YOUR FLU SHOT BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!”

Don’t fall for the escalating propaganda that is being propelled by a fear campaign.  The flu vaccine is NOT the best way to protect yourself against the H1N1 virus.

According to reports, 6 people have died in Texas from the H1N1 virus and complications.  But the virus is not confined to that state.

Texas isn’t the only state dealing with H1N1 cases. Here are some of the states battling the swine flu:'


Pineapple Enzyme Bromelain Destroys Cancer

'The enzyme bromelain, found in pineapple, is one of several natural foods you can use to prevent cancer, fight cancer if you have it, and minimize the effects of radiation therapy that often cause as much damage to healthy cells as they do to cancerous cells. 

Chemotherapy is the most common form of treatment for cancer in the United States. It has been used for the past four decades despite the fact that it ravages the body, weakening the immune system until it can no longer function properly. 

The cure is often worse than the disease, pushing scientists to search for natural cancer-fighting solutions.' 


Choose Chiropractic for Ear Infections

 ear infection

'Few things are worse than the crying in the night that signals ear infections. Misery, missed school and a trip to the doctor for antibiotics have been standard procedure for decades. But now with the threat of consequences from overuse of antibiotic drugs, many parents are looking for alternative healing methods. Chiropractic offers an effective natural alternative to the medical establishment’s standard of care.'

Pneumonia Cured in 3 Hours Using Natural Medicine


'The numbers are staggering. The eighth leading cause of death, in the United States, is pneumonia and influenza – killing over 50,000 people per year. Conventional medicine, in all its years of ‘wisdom’, advise people to get a flu shot for ‘prevention’. There’s only one problem – it doesn’t work!

Flu shots only weaken the immune system – especially when you consider that flu vaccines are loaded with unwanted (toxic) ingredients like, mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde. Adding insult to injury, the most deadly cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ are treated with antibiotics – which are completely ineffective against viruses. Fortunately, once again, the natural health world has a solution – which has been systematically ignored by western medicine for decades.'


Modern science validates light and color therapies in promoting full-spectrum health


'The ancient practices of phototherapy and chromotherapy are gaining momentum as valid science. Researchers are now able to study how light and color not only affect psychological behavior, but also physiological systems of the body. An article in The New York Times explores how color and light influence well-being in a variety of circumstance; from prison cells to neonatal units, coal mines to classrooms.'



12 Foods Most People Don't Know Are Dyed or Adulterated

'Food fraud was recently defined in a report funded by the National Center for Food Protection and Defense (University of Minnesota) as a collective term that encompasses the deliberate substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or food packaging, or false or misleading statements made about a product for economic gain. 

A more specific type of fraud, intentional or economically motivated adulteration of food ingredients has been defined by USP's Expert Panel on Food Ingredient Intentional Adulterants as the fraudulent addition of nonauthentic substances or removal or replacement of authentic substances without the purchaser's knowledge for economic gain of the seller.'


Lentil Stew with Winter Vegetables and Mustard Greens

'Lentil stew – wholesome, nourishing and filling – makes for an inexpensive and satisfying meal. I serve it in late autumn and winter, using up all the sturdy root vegetables we keep in cold storage. I bake a loaf of no-knead sourdough, open up a jar of homemade sauerkraut and ladle lentil stew into my family’s waiting bowls. I drizzle a bit of olive oil over my stew and toss in a splash of balsamic vinegar, which bring a bit of their brightness to the stew’s humble earthiness.

Lentil stew is peasant food – simple, satisfying and inexpensive. When times are tight and our grocery budget shrinks as a result, I rely on lentils to satisfy hungry bellies and to stretch inexpensive cuts of beef a bit further.'

Cancer & GERD

 GERD Representation

'Where does it all start? This important question can determine the success or failure of medical treatments so we better get it right. Actually there are several starting places to chronic illness but the one I want to talk about here starts in the stomach, which starts screaming at us with a host of GERD symptoms when things start going wrong in our lives.

One of the most important points for doctors and patients to realize is that GERD is a deficiency disease meaning it is not caused by excess acid it is caused by deficient acid. When the stomach does not produce enough acid the food sits in the stomach and repeats back up to the esophageal sphincter. It is, as they call it an excess acid condition only because it is an acid mix, just not high enough to create proper digestion, but high enough to burn tissues that it is exposed long enough to.

Hydrochloric acid, referred to as HCl, is produced in the stomach by the parietal cells that lie deep in the stomach walls. The truth is, we wouldn’t be able to digest at all without it.'


Ayahuasca and Cancer: One Man’s Experience

'A year ago I never dreamed that I would be writing about two subjects, both of which are generally considered taboo. One of these is cancer. We avoid talking about cancer – “the Big C” – because it speaks of our fears of mortality and pain. When an office mate is rumored to have cancer, she is viewed differently. We avoid the topic, or speak in whispers about it. We wish it would go away.

For entirely different reasons, ayahuasca is talked about in muzzled tones. The Drug Enforcement Administration – the grand arbiter of all chemicals in America – is responsible for this taboo and has classified DMT, one of its constituents, as a Schedule I drug, thereby rendering it illegal and nearly unavailable for fascinating medical, psychological, neuroscientific, and spiritual research. Like cancer, we tend to talk about it in whispers, too.'


Homemade Toothpaste Recipe: Remineralizing

'This homemade toothpaste recipe is 100% natural, perfectly edible, and full of the minerals your teeth need to re-build enamel and maintain healthy teeth and gums.

It’s a long-held belief among conventional dentistry that you can’t regrow tooth enamel or heal cavities. But studies done by holistic dental care providers prove otherwise.

When combined with a diet rich in the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K-2 and devoid of mineral-stealing anti-nutrients, a homemade toothpaste recipe like this one can transform your dental health.'

Travel Medicine: Stay Healthy While Traveling

Travel medicine expert John J. Stern, MD, chief of the Division of Infectious Disease and Chairman of the Infection Prevention Committee at Pennsylvania Hospital discusses the importance of being prepared when planning to travel abroad.
Penn Travel Medicine
John J. Stern, MD

What is travel medicine and why is it necessary?

For many, traveling can be an enriching experience that opens their minds to diverse ways of life. The memories made on these adventures, can last a lifetime. These adventurers, though, are likely to encounter numerous health risks that many are ill-prepared for.

Our job, as Penn Medicine Travel providers, is to stay current about disease outbreaks around the globe so that you are prepared and able to enjoy your trip. We offer guidance, advice, immunizations, and any necessary prescriptions based on your trip plans.

Unfortunately, traveling to developing countries (or anywhere outside of the United States) can subject the traveler to a small, but real, risk of acquiring one of numerous tropical infectious diseases. Because insects are the most common carriers of the diseases, oftentimes, travelers do not know they have been infected for quite some time. With just a small amount of preparation, the risks of contracting one of these diseases can be significantly lowered.

How can Penn Travel Medicine help?

Penn Travel Medicine
Penn Medicine Travel providers offer services for all types of travelers. If you are planning a short trip or a prolonged period living abroad, we can help. After you depart for your trip, our physicians make themselves available in the event you become ill and require advice.

We provide a full range of immunizations, such as Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Polio, and are licensed by the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) as a qualified center to provide yellow fever immunizations. In the event a traveler returns with an illness, our group of board certified infectious disease specialists are ready and able to provide care and, if needed, admission to Pennsylvania Hospital.

Our group has been providing travel medicine services for over 30 years and has cared for a countless number of travelers.

Don’t take a chance on your health. If you’re planning to travel internationally, let Penn Medicine Travel Medicine help you be fully prepared. We are also more than happy to speak with patients interested in our service prior to their visit.

Happy Traveling!

Vitamin C, Shingles, and Vaccination

Vitamin C, Shingles, and Vaccination 
by Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD

'The pharmaceutical industry, and many doctors, appear to be making great efforts by to get as many people as possible vaccinated against shingles. Even if such an intervention was highly effective in preventing shingles, which certainly has not been shown to be the case, the information below should make it clear that such vaccinations are unnecessary. 
The side effects that would be suffered by a significant number of individuals need never occur in the first place. The real problem is that what is discussed below generates relatively little income for anybody in the healthcare industry. Regardless, you need to decide for yourself.'

Man in his 80s with “severe dementia” returning to old self after starting coconut oil

'My Dad was diagnosed with Severe Dementia about 7-8 years ago. I still remember the day when he forgot my name. Ever since then I've been praying for him to return to whom he was, but as time passed he got worse and worse. I saw a very articulate man go from creative, comical and caring to distraught, lost and childlike.
A friend of mine told me about this coconut oil and its results and I practically got tears in my eyes. So I bought some coconut oil and gave it to my mother as she cooks all his meals.

Two weeks later I returned and my father was far more social, and he even began to tell jokes. He still wasn’t himself, but a glimpse of his former self was there. One day I believe he will return to the person whom he was. The change in him over the 7 weeks has been far better than I would of hoped for. This diet of coconut oil in everything he eats has done wonders for him.'

Pregnant Nurse Fired for Refusing Flu Shot

By Dr. Mercola

'The brainwashing about influenza vaccines runs deep, and perhaps more in the US than in many other countries. So much so that, over the past couple of years, we've heard more and more reports of health care workers being required to get vaccinated against their will or be fired from their jobs.

In 2012, Missouri health care workers were threatened with corrective action for refusing the flu vaccine and were told they'd be ineligible for pay raises.

Last year, eight nurses in Indiana were fired for not complying with the hospital's new mandatory flu vaccination rule, announced in September 2012. One of them had worked at the hospital for 22 years, with a stellar work record.

Most recently, a 29-year old pregnant nurse at a hospital was fired from her position with Horizons Healthcare Services in Pennsylvania after refusing the flu shot.' 


Earth Balance Betrays Consumers With False Non-GMO and Organic Claims

'Earth Balance is a company that claims to "take the health of our planet just as seriously as we take the wellness of our customers." They also assert this position with a Non-GMO commitment believing in "environmental protection and agricultural methods that work in harmony with nature." When we investigated Earth Balance, we found these statements to be purely superficial marketing tactics designed to deceive consumers into purchasing foods manufactured with ingredients which completely contradict their corporate philosophy statements.'

Vitamin C: Nature's Most Powerful Vitamin For Healing

'Over 75 years of medical research and clinical practice reveals, overwhelmingly, that vitamin C has the power to ignite the 'self-healing response'. I know what you're thinking - if vitamin C is so good for us - why haven't you been told about this curative nutrient? Well, the answer will soon become painfully obvious.

Medical students receive little nutritional training - only 2 hours in 4 years! Vitamin C therapy for a host of chronic diseases has been systematically ignored by conventional medicine for decades. 

Believe it or not, in the 1940's, Dr. Klenner used vitamin C to cure 60 out of 60 cases of polio and that was back in the days when the polio vaccine didn't even exist. Dr. Klenner even presented his findings - at a large medical conference about his success with high dose vitamin C therapy and it was largely ignored.'

Garlic - A Natural Treatment For HPV

'Warts are considered non-cancerous skin growths - different strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV) cause warts to form on different areas of the body. Warts that form on the fingers are typically called "common" warts, while those that appear on the soles of the feet are called plantar warts. To treat common warts, plantar warts, and corns without acid, cryotherapy, or excision, all you need are fresh garlic cloves, a knife, and athletic tape.'


Federal Law Would Make GMO Labeling Voluntary, Preempt State Laws

‘Claiming they are merely seeking a “national solution,” mega food corporations are pushing a federal GMO labeling law.

The problem is, the law would be voluntary and it would preempt every state in this country from passing legislation that isn’t according to a draft obtained by Politico.

But the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents such food and beverage leaders as ConAgra, PepsiCo and Kraft, isn’t exactly joining the anti-GMO movement. It’s advocating for an industry-friendly, law with a voluntary federal standard — a move that food activists see as a power grab by an industry that has tried to kill GMO labeling initiatives every step of the way.'


Decoding Labels: French’s Worcestershire Sauce

'Worcestershire sauce is a staple in our home. What would my homemade Caesar Salad Dressing be without it?

We also use Worcestershire sauce to season hamburger patties, make a homemade barbecue sauce, marinate steaks, and so much more!

And because an authentic Worcestershire sauce is made with a long, slow fermentation process, it’s not the sort of condiment that most of us would make at home. Instead, we buy it at the store.

So when a reader asked me to decode the label of her FRENCH’s Classic Worcestershire Sauce, I thought it made excellent sense to do so.'

Magnesium—The Missing Link to Better Health

'Magnesium is perhaps one of the most overlooked minerals. This is especially important because, an estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in it. The health consequences of deficiency can be quite significant, and can be aggravated by many, if not most, drug treatments.

In the featured video, Carolyn Dean, a medical and naturopathic doctor, discusses the importance of this mineral.

Dr. Dean was the lead author on the seminal paper “Death by Medicine” back in 2003, showing that modern medicine is in fact one of the leading causes of death in the United States. She also authored the book Death by Modern Medicine.

Last year, she was awarded the Arrhythmia Alliance Outstanding Medical Contribution to Cardiac Rhythm Management Services Award 2012. It was given by the Heart Rhythm Society of the UK, which is a major allopathic organization.'

7 Health Benefits of Meditation

'It's a piece of advice yogis have given for thousands of years: take a deep breath and relax. Watch the tension melt from your muscles and all your niggling worries vanish. Somehow we all know that relaxation is good for us.

Now the hard science has caught up: a comprehensive scientific study showing that deep relaxation changes our bodies on a genetic level has just been published. What researchers at Harvard Medical School discovered is that, in long-term practitioners of relaxation methods such as yoga and meditation, far more ''disease-fighting genes'' were active, compared to those who practiced no form of relaxation.'


Activate Your Daily Water—5 Ways to Enhance the Water You Drink

Green Tea

Green tea is often a healthier alternative for hydration to pure water.

Recently, I began to question how good water is for health. It makes sense to drink pure water…or does it? How much do we really need every day? Do water filters make a significant difference on your health? Is bottled water a need, or a corporate scheme to monetize a popular health trend?

My four decades of fieldwork with traditional indigenous people contradicts our modern notion of 4-6 glasses of pure water a day.'


The Oil that May Help Relieve Arthritis, Sciatica and Back Pain

'You are probably aware that castor oil is regarded by some as a constipation remedy

But you may not be aware of its reported use as an antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal, or that it has been used topically to treat a variety of skin conditions, reduce pain, and stimulate your immune system.

Read on, because I'm about to explore the myth and mystery of this unusual oil, and of course, investigate what modern science has to say about it.

However, regardless of what some of the research has suggested, you should be very cautious when experimenting with castor oil since the science is sparse at best, and there are several known reports of unpleasant side effects experienced by some users.'

Doctors Change Names of Diseases When Vaccines Do Not Work

'When vaccines do not work, the creative way to cover it up is to change the name of the disease.'

'Doctors around the world are being faced with children catching the diseases they have been vaccinated against. Rather than diagnosing these children correctly, professionals have discovered that the doctors are giving the diseases new names. This suggests a cover up is going on and the vaccinations we are all being told are safe and effective are in fact completely useless.

Vaccinations are now being given to children to keep them safe from every disease known to man. There appears to be a vaccination for everything from polio to a broken finger nail. However, many professionals now believe that the vaccinations are actually causing the diseases they are supposed to prevent.'


Red Clover Blocks Damage from Excitotoxins

'Why is there such an increase in Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases? One answer is excitotoxins, chemicals added to food that kill brain cells . One of the most deadly of this group is neurotoxic monosodium glutamate (MSG), found in many processed foods and used heavily in almost all restaurants. 

So what can you do when friends or family want to eat out and this knowledge can spoil the fun? A recent study has found that pre-treating yourself with a supplement of red clover (Trifolium pratense) before eating food laced with this neurotoxin can block damage from MSG. This is good news indeed.'


Ginger Treats Osteoarthritis with Topical Application

Ginger Treats Osteoarthritis with Topical Application

'Research from Australia's Edith Cowan University has confirmed an ancient treatment - that osteoarthritis pain and mobility is reduced with the application of ginger root topically.

The researchers recruited 20 adults between the ages of 35 and 90 years old – average age of 64 years old. All of the volunteers had been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. 85% of the patients had osteoarthritis of the knees and/or hips.

The researchers randomly divided the patients into two groups, and treated half of them with a ginger (Zingiber officinalis) compress, and half with a ginger transdermal patch – a patent-pending product from New Zealand.

The patients applied the patch or compress daily. They were monitored weekly with a Health Assessment Questionnaire throughout the 24 week study.'

Gardasil: My Daughter’s Worst Nightmare

'Cancer is a frightening word. Any parent in the world would do whatever was in their power to protect their child from this terrible disease. I had no idea adding Gardasil to our list of protective measures would turn our lives into a nightmare.

Allie is my beautiful 12 year old daughter. She is the youngest of my three children. Having been born 12 years after her brother and sister, she was a little spoiled. Allie made every day a party. For several years we could not eat a meal without someone spitting milk while laughing at something she said.  She is a very clever, witty and funny girl constantly putting on shows for us!  She has always been very healthy except for occasional bronchitis and a few bouts of strep throat.  Recently, all that changed…

Allie received her first Gardasil shot February 2, 2012 along with 3 other vaccinations including the one for Meningitis.  February was a month of severe nosebleeds, headaches, stomach issues and generally not feeling well. I never reported to the doctor as we do not call for every little thing. At the time, thought nothing of it.'


How Sitting For Prolonged Periods Is Stalling Your Metabolic Machinery And What To Do About It

'There are serious consequences that result when the muscular engine sits on 'idle' and in long periods in sedentary positions. Prolonged sitting can lead to loss of shoulder motion, chronic pain, walking deficits, neck-related headaches, the inability to exercise, and can literally impede the ability to metabolize fat and sugar, potentially raising the risk for cardiovascular disease.'


Food can be medicine or poison --the choice is YOURS

'The other day, an acquaintance asked me for some advice for his wife, who has long suffered with symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. He explained that her symptoms had gotten so bad that she was barely able to leave the home, and that their social life had become non-existent. 

Typically, I find that I can't really be of service when a person asks for help for someone else. If the person who is experiencing symptoms won't ask for help directly, well, over the years, I have found that in most such cases, there isn't enough desire to make the changes needed to experience a turnaround.

Still, after asking several questions and learning more about this fellow's wife, I asked him to have her get back to me with a detailed list of what she eats and drinks in a typical week. I explained that in reviewing her diet, I would be happy to share any suggestions that came to mind.' 


How to Cook Healthy in a Tiny Kitchen

Photo Credit: Renegade Health

'A couple of weeks ago we did a survey that some of you answered. Here’s a question that we received, which I’d like to answer today:

Can someone please show those of us on a budget and living in tiny quarters, with kitchens the size of closets, how to afford and prepare all this wonderful health food? Just once, I’d like to see a fancy prep demonstration held in a kitchen my size…

That’s a great question!

I must admit that I’m a happy renter. I’ve never purchased any real estate in my life, not because I think there’s anything wrong with it, but because I like the freedom of not owning anything and being able to move whenever I want.

For that reason, and the fact that I’ve lived in many different cities, I have had the chance to experiment with different kitchens. Some were large and modern, and some were extremely small, kind of like the one you’re describing.'

Do Vaccinations Cause Autism?

[Note: This article is part one of a series. Click Here for Part two,  Click Here for Part three. for Part four.]

If you asked "Do vaccinations cause autism?"

' anyone in the medical establishment, government or drug industry, the answer would be a firm NO, with supportive peer review medical publications. However, if you asked this question to mothers of autistic children, or the (DAN) physicians treating them, the answer would be a an equally emphatic YES, of course, pointing to their own supportive medical studies. (1)(2)(3)(3A)(4)(5) (93-99)'


On These Prescriptions? They Actually Increase Risk of Death!

Natural Remedies for Gas and Bloating

'Intestinal gas and bloating are annoying and sometimes embarrassing conditions which plague much of the western world. Poor dietary habits and improper digestion prevalent in western society are major contributors to gas and bloating. Some estimates report that people with poor diets may expel gas 14 or more times daily. Fortunately, some sensible dietary changes and natural remedies can prevent future bouts of gas and bloating as well as relieve current episodes.

One good way to avoid gas and bloating is to avoid foods that are known to cause gas and indigestion, such as fried foods, spicy foods, processed foods and refined sugar. Other foods which may lead to gas and bloating include most beans, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, apples, corn, oats, potatoes, most dairy products, pears, prunes, and peaches.'


Almond Spinach Basil Pesto

'If there is one food that I could eat everyday – it’s pesto. Pesto is incredibly versatile; not only is it amazing on fresh sprouted flour pasta, but also as a spread on grilled cheese, topped on salmon filets, as sauce on top of homemade sourdough pizza, mixed into butter for a delicious punch of flavor, added into soup – literally, the possibilities are endless!

This recipe for Almond Spinach Basil Pesto is one of my favorites – it is budget friendly since you use more spinach than fresh basil and almonds instead of expensive pine nuts. However, you do not compromise on flavor. This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily, we make big batches of this pesto and freeze it in smaller portions to use throughout the months. Trust me, you will LOVE this!'

The Diet Myth that is Destroying the Health of the World

Photo Credit:

'Diet myths abound in the health industry, but one of the biggest myths of all is the idea that a calorie is a calorie, no matter where you get it from, or what the chemical or nutritional makeup of it is.

If you care about your health and are truly working to keep your weight down, then you need to know the truth about calories as well as the substances that distort how calories work in your body.
For example, sugar is one of the major health topics in the news these days, with “sugar is sugar” news updates, ads, and counter-ads.

Your body actually treats sugar in the same way it treats alcohol and other toxins. This is in large part how sugars can damage your liver and other organs, and why Dr. Lustig refers to sugar as a toxin. I recently wrote about this at length in the article, Is Sugar Toxic?'


New Study Links Multiple Infant Vaccines To Increased Death Rates

‘From birth, children are bombarded with a variety of different vaccinations, just take a look at the immunization schedule for children in the United States.(here) A new study published in the journal Vaccine has linked multiple infant vaccines to an increased rate of infant mortality.(1) The vaccines in question are the DTP, MV and YF vaccines. The DTP vaccine refers to a combination of vaccines against three diseases; diptheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus. MV refers to the measles vaccine and YF refers to the yellow fever vaccine.’


Clean your Body’s Drains: How to Detoxify your Lymphatic System

'Did you know that we are exposed to 82,000 different toxins, chemically-based products and processed foods in our environment weekly?

Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of eliminating harmful toxins from the body so that it can function at its best. Toxins are man-made chemicals found in the air, water, food, household cleaners and cosmetic products as well as waste products produced by normal cellular activity.

When toxins enter the body through the skin, nasal passage or mouth, the body prevents “pollution” by surrounding the toxins with fat and water and stores them in different areas of the body. This can put a strain on our body’s own detox system (the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems). These systems can become burdened as they try to safely excrete toxins.'

'It's cold and flu season again, and time to make sure your immune system is up to the task of protecting you.  One of the best ways to make sure your immune system is first rate is through the use of adaptogens, a group of substances that have nonspecific actions in the body and create minimal disruption while they normalize body functions.  Two herbal pillars of Chinese medicine, Astragalas and Schisandra, are adaptogens rapidly gaining favor in the Western world. 
Walking the tightrope

You and your immune system do a constant balancing act as you walk the tightrope of life. Let your immune system weaken too much, and the door is opened to pathogens and cancer. Let it strengthen too much, and the result can be systemic inflammation, allergies and autoimmune disorders. Astragalus and Schisandra function as balance beams to keep you perfectly centered on that tightrope.'

Medical Marijuana: A "Cure" for Autism?

'At a medical marijuana event, a man and his wife came up and quietly said they wanted to talk confidentially about how medical cannabis "cured autism" in their daughter. 

The woman held the hand of the 7-year-old girl who was the couple’s daughter.

“Our daughter was diagnosed with autism,” the man said, “but look at her. She’s not displaying signs of autism, is she? It’s because medical marijuana cured her autism, but the medical establishment and the law are blocking research into it, and we have to hide what it has done for her.”'

ED NOTE: Perfect for all the latest bad news about Fukushima's worsening and how it affects us all.

'If you have been exposed to any form of radiation, either for medical diagnostic purposes (fluoroscopy/mammography/other medical x-ray exams) or in the course of radiotherapy treatment, or if you are otherwise concerned by excessive radiation exposure, overload or poisoning (such as living near a nuclear reactor facility, working with diagnostic radiological equipment/in the nuclear processing industries/uranium mining/uranium --

or plutonium processing), or if you have been exposed to radioactive particles or higher ionizing radiation doses stemming from other sources such as depleted uranium (DU), testing of atomic weapons, frequent flights in higher altitudes, a nuclear disaster (radiation fallout from the Japan nuclear power plants) etc., here are a number of tips and suggested remedies how to naturally help your body excrete damaging radioactive elements (e.g. strontium and radioactive iodine) or detoxify their noxious byproducts such as free radicals as well as deal with radiation burns.' 


Big Pharma Gives Another Child Narcolepsy via the Swine Flu Vax, Then Cures It with a New Miracle Drug That Costs Over $20K per Year

‘Before you line your kids up to have this year’s flu vaccine sprayed up their noses or injected into their arms, consider the fact that in Europe, children developed incurable debilitating narcolepsy after receiving injections from a drug developed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). But it’s okay – they have created a miracle treatment that costs the child’s family only a bit over $20,000 per year…forever.

More than 800 children across Europe have been diagnosed with this lifelong neurological disorder and the evidence is overwhelming in the implication of the vaccine.’


The Deadly Truth About Flu Vaccines and Pregnancy

The Deadly Truth: Flu Vaccines and Pregnancy

'Why does the CDC claim a flu vaccine during pregnancy is a safe and effective when even the H1N1 vaccine insert clearly states this is not true?

According to all official health reports, we are now fully in flu season. It is that time of year when public health officials, physicians pediatricians and pharmacists warn that everyone over 6 months of age and older should protect themselves and get vaccinated. This includes renewed propaganda to influence pregnant women to protect their unborn child and to threaten healthcare workers with job termination if they refuse vaccination.

A recent case that has received widespread media attention across the major networks was the firing of a pregnant nurse, Dreonna Breton, from her job at Horizon Healthcare Services in Lancaster Pennsylvania for refusing the flu vaccine. Having waded through the scientific research about flu vaccine safety, Breton made the decision to reject because she felt the lack of safety outweighed the vaccine's benefits.'


Fascinating New Study Shows How Emotions Are Mapped On The Human Body

'Emotions coordinate our behavior and physiological states during survival-salient events and pleasurable interactions. Even though we are often consciously aware of our current emotional state, such as anger or happiness, the mechanisms giving rise to these subjective sensations have remained unresolved. Brilliant research by Finnish scientists has mapped the areas of our body that are experiencing an increase or decrease in sensory activity when we experience a particular emotion.'

How Cannabinoids May Slow Brain Aging

'Stoners aren’t known for their memory prowess but a new review suggests that drugs similar to marijuana’s active ingredients may hold promise for preventing— or even reversing— brain aging and possibly Alzheimer‘s and other degenerative brain diseases.

Since the mid 2000′s researchers have been building an appreciation for the power of marijuana-like substances that make up the brain’s cannabinoid systems. In animal experiments, for example, synthetic compounds similar to THC—marijuana’s main psychoactive component—have shown promise in preserving brain functions. A 2008 study even demonstrated that a THC-like substance reduced brain inflammation and improved memory in older rats.'
