Creating Disease: Big Pharma and Disease Mongering

 http://www.nutritional-supplements-health-guide.com/images/cartoons/ct_disease_mongers_inc_600.jpg

'You may think there is enough disease in the world already, and that no one would want to add to the diseases that we humans must deal with. But there is a powerful industry in our society that is working overtime to invent illnesses and to convince us we are suffering from them.

This effort is known as "disease mongering," a term introduced by health-science writer Lynn Payer in her 1992 book Disease-Mongers: How Doctors, Drug Companies, and Insurers Are Making You Feel Sick. Payer defined disease mongering as "trying to convince essentially well people that they are sick, or slightly sick people that they are very ill."'

'Sometimes it really is the thinking that makes it so. Spend your days focusing on your vibrant health and you will be vibrantly healthy. In contrast you could make it known that you lack a healthy lifestyle, and as a result you will continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle. 

While this belief is held by many, a recent study has come out with even mainstream scientists proclaiming the very real power of thought.

'Detoxification is meant to rejuvenate the mind and body and positively impact well being and clarity. However, sometimes the initial reaction to a detoxification program can be anything but pleasant. The process of healing sometimes includes a healing crisis, also known as the detox reaction, the cleansing reaction, and the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. During a healing crisis, you can feel even worse than before you started your detox program. The good news is that this reaction is likely a sign that you’re getting better by way of a deep and thorough cleansing.'

How To Stop Overthinking – 9 Simple Habits

Photo Credit: spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com


'What is holding people back from the life that they truly want to live?

I’d say that one very common and destructive thing is that they think too much.

They overthink every little problem until it becomes bigger and scarier and it actually is. Overthink positive things until they don’t look so positive anymore.

Or overanalyze and deconstruct things and so the happiness that comes from just enjoying something in the moment disappears.

Now, thinking things through can be a great thing of course. But being an overthinker can result in becoming someone who stands still in life. In becoming someone who self-sabotages the good things that happen in life.


I know. I used to overthink things a lot and it held me back in ways that weren’t fun at all.'

Cancer Treatment Found in Ancient Resin




'We have all known someone who has had cancer or currently is battling it. It seems cancer rates are on the rise and the ‘cure’ has been deemed by the medical industry, as no where in site. Luckily, nature always finds a way. Whether or not we hear it from the ‘Cancer Society’ or not, should not really matter. Studies have been done and research is in, cancer treatment has been found in the ancient resin of frankincense – distilled as an essential oil

That’s right, the same oil that was supposedly gifted baby Jesus, along with gold and myrrh, has been found to have powerful healing capacity, maybe there is something to that story. Frankincense, especially oil distilled from the species found in Oman, has been shown to eliminate every type of cancer cell it has come in contact with – leaving the healthy cells alone.'

'Despite the fact that vegetables have been proven to help lower your risk of chronic disease and support longevity, most Americans are not eating nearly enough of these natural, relatively inexpensive superfoods.

The latest data shows that nearly 23 percent of Americans report consuming vegetables and fruits less than one time daily, with a median vegetable intake of just 1.6 times per day overall.1

Adding in more vegetables to your diet is a simple and powerful step to dramatically improve your health. Vegetables are quick to prepare and come in so many different varieties that they should suit virtually everyone’s tastes.

If you want even more motivation to eat more veggies, check out these newly unveiled health benefits (which are so dramatic the researchers called them “staggering.”)

'In some places, towns essentially shut down in the afternoon while everyone goes home for a siesta. Unfortunately, in the U.S.—more bound to our corporate lifestyles than our health—a mid-day nap is seen as a luxury and, in some cases, a sign of pure laziness. But before you feel guilty about that weekend snooze or falling asleep during a movie, rest assured that napping is actually good for you and a completely natural phenomena in the circadian (sleep-wake cycle) rhythm.'

Reinventing Humanity – A New World Order Wet Dream

 


‘Synthetic food, synthetic voice, synthetic body, synthetic memory, synthetic brain, synthetic everything. That is what we are headed for at an increasingly accelerated rate. We are losing our humanity minute by minute and replacing it with technology. This is not an accident. No, it is quite intentional. We are being programmed to accept the theory that technology is somehow better than nature, and that those who use it are superior to those who don’t, when in actuality, we are becoming hopelessly dependent on it.

There is nothing wrong with technology when it is used as a tool for accomplishing worthy goals. However, there is a big difference between using it in a positive, beneficial way, and as a manipulative tool to create terminal dependence as a way of life.'

'This could save your life, remove pain and add many many years of quality and creativity to your life. If you have been looking for the fountain of youth, you may have found it, and guess what, it is free! 

 Inclined Bed Therapy started to spread across the internet in 2005 by the work of three heros in alternative medicine. Namely Andrew Fletcher who discovered IBT, and was quickly supported by Chris Gupta from Share The Wealth and Brian McInturff ND from ElectricHerbalism.com. 

I (Ken Uzzell - Physical Therapies, Nutritionist and Trauma Release Therapist) was quick to jump in fourth place as I discovered Xtreme help and support for the entire human system and frame. The evidence is in, and since observing hundreds of clients and reading many reports by people trying IBT have become more than surprised with the overall health benefits provided. No other therapy today can offer so much help with so little resources.'

The TRUTH about Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

New Study Links GMO Food To Leukemia


'A groundbreaking new study published in the current issue of the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases reveals the potential "leukemogenic" properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.

Last September, the causal link between cancer and genetically modified food was confirmed in a French study, the first independent long-term animal feeding study not commissioned by the biotech corporations themselves. The disturbing details can be found here: New Study Finds GM Corn and Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats

Now, a new study published in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases indicates that the biopesticides engineered into GM crops known as Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) or Cry-toxins, may also contribute to blood abnormalities from anemia to hematological malignancies (blood cancers) such as leukemia.[i]'

'Health gurus have long said that if you give your body what it needs, you will live a long and disease free life.  This means making sure you are getting optimal levels of all nutrients, including sulfur.  Why the attention to sulfur? It’s because sulfur intake is critical to good health, and we don’t get much of it from our diets due to modern farming methods not replacing it in the soils in which our food is grown, even if it’s organic.

What can sulfur do?'

10 Reasons You Should Be Eating Romaine Lettuce Above All Others

 http://www.whatsontheplate.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/rommaine-lettuce-salad-l.jpg



'Green leaf, red leaf, butterhead and iceberg are just a few common types of lettuce available at most markets. However, in terms of nutrient density, none are healthier than Romaine. 

There are plenty of other green leafs which are even healthier such as spinach, kale, arugula, radicchio, endive etc, but for common lettuce types, romaine is king. Leafy greens in general are likely the number one food you can eat to regularly help improve your health.

If you start your meal with a salad made of romaine lettuce you will be sure to add not only a variety of textures and flavors to your meal but an enormous amount of nutritional value. Most of the domestic U.S. harvest of romaine lettuce and other salad greens comes from California and is available throughout the year.'

What's New and Beneficial About Onions


http://lifehackery.com/qimages/5/onions.jpg





 Photo Credit:Lifehackery.com

'If you’ve been eating an apple a day to keep the doctor away, you would be wise to add an onion a day to that regimen. This humble vegetable is a member of the Allium genus, making it closely related to other superfoods like garlic, leeks, scallions, and chives.

This means onions are rich in sulfur-containing compounds that give them both their characteristic odor and much of their health-boosting potential.

As one of the oldest cultivated plants, onions do not disappoint in terms of nutrition. They’re a very good source of vitamins C and B6, iron, folate, and potassium. But it’s their phytochemicals – including the flavonoid quercetin and allyl disulphide – that are most exciting to researchers.'

Iodine Prevents and Heals Breast Cancer

 women


'There is a lot of mystery and confusion surrounding iodine’s importance and safety as a supplement, which is unfortunate since there’s so little of it in our foods. And Iodized salt is not a good way to get iodine into your system. 

So dispelling the misinformation and disinformation is necessary.
Iodine’s RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) is 150 mcg (micrograms) per day. Dr. Guy Abraham, who initially mentored Dr. David Brownstien, author of The Iodine Crisis and Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It, insists we should be taking in 12.5 mg (milligrams) daily. This is 100 times greater than our RDA. 

But it is also the estimated amount per individual intake from seaweed and seafood among Japan’s population. Japan has the lowest rates of thyroid, prostate, and breast cancer. Some might argue that the Japanese get their iodine from food, but that supplements are unsafe.'

'The news surrounding cannabis extract medicine, particularly the use of high-CBD oils for epileptic conditions in children, has been steadily increasing since the release of Sanjay Gupta’s documentary on August 11th, 2013. Most recently, a Decmber 3, 2013 Huffington Post Live segment featured Joel Stanley (Co-founder and CEO of Realm of Caring), Heather Jackson (Executive Director), and Holli Brown.Holli discussed the experience of her child Sydni, who began experiencing seizures at the age of 4. For years, no pharmaceutical options worked to control Sydni’s condition. Holli described the effects of the cannabis oil as remarkable.'

DIY Homemade Vanilla Bean Extract

'This must be one of the most simplest recipes you can do! Pure 100% vanilla beans extract is expensive, and with the same amount of money you can buy all the ingredients and make it yourself, pure, natural and organic! They make great gifts too!

I personally like to place the organic vanilla beans in a large bottle(s) because you will need to shake the bottle(s) every week (1 -2 per week), for the entire duration of storing. Now if you make many small bottles in advance, that would be a lot of shaking vs having one or two large bottles, you can always transfer them into small decorative bottles for gifts later.

I get about a pound of organic vanilla beans which is an incredible amount of beans. Recipes seem to recommend anywhere from 3 to 6 beans per cup of alcohol. I used 6 and still had enough beans to make this recipe 5 or 6 times over, I like to put more for that dark rich taste.'

'COPD is the often used term for "Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease," a rather clumsy and vague description for most of us. It includes a few different lung issues, such as emphysema, bronchiectasis and chronic bronchitis. The scary part is that it's a mystery to our pharmaceutical-dependent medical system. And it gets progressively worse, often leading to death.

It's third in disease death rates, behind only heart disease and cancer. COPD creates constricted airways in one's lungs or renders small lung sacks inelastic and unable to fully accommodate breathing cycles; thus, there is obstruction.'
