'It’s hard to believe, but one of the most reliable, safe, and inexpensive solutions for cancer has not only been marginalized by mainstream oncology, but by the alternative health crowd as well. Some insiders, even those among the well trained medically, decry laetrile or apricot seed effectiveness while fear mongering its supposed toxic elements.'

'The conventional medical, pharmaceutical, and processed food industries don't present the subject of health in a clear and concise manner to the public. We are led to believe that it is natural and inevitable for us to develop diseases as we grow older. But this is not true. So, why is this subject so confusing? Could it be that this confusion has been intentional? Answering these questions and presenting a straight-forward understanding on how to be healthy and prevent disease is the purpose of The Disease-Free Revolution.
We need a revolution in the way we think about health and disease because we are being deceived and lied to on a regular basis by the very people and industries we have been taught to rely on for our health and nutritional well-being.'
'The market’s awash in products claiming to be colloidal silver. Yes, I did say ‘claiming’ to be colloidal silver. True silver, as defined by the Colloidal Science Laboratory, is very different from the many products marketed as colloidal. True colloidal silver consists of silver nanoparticles.
But how can you tell the difference, and is colloidal even safe? Here are 7 facts every silver newbie needs to know about colloidal silver’s safety, how to identify a true colloidal silver product, and why it’s imperative you use only true colloidal silver.'
'Back in April of 2014, this author presented an article about how cannabis is very helpful for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). The story of Jeff Waters, diagnosed with stage III COPD at the age of 36, was featured in that article. Some may wonder how he's doing now.
First a quick review of what COPD is. It's a strange name that describes different lung problems that aren't cancerous but very debilitating. Those you see carting around oxygen tanks that feed into their nostrils have some form of COPD. And the prognosis from mainstream medicine is that it only gets worse. There's no cure in sight from Big Pharma.'
Two Types of Ingredients In Over 95 Percent of All Processed Foods Fuel Over-Consumption Of Those Same Foods
'If you guessed refined sugars and processed oils, give yourself a gold star. Diets that lead to obesity -- specifically diets high in refined sugars and processed oils may cause changes to the brains of obese people that in turn may fuel over-consumption of those same foods and make weight loss more challenging.
The problem is that the body exerts a strong defense against undernutrition and weight loss, but applies a much weaker resistance to over-consumption and weight gain -- a human behavior food industry scientists have learned to exploit in their favor.'
'As a longtime anxiety sufferer, I’ve experienced quite a few hardships along the road to health and healing.
Outside of the obvious stress, mental anguish and low self-esteem that accompany a mental health disorder, I found it’s the misconceptions surrounding it that are often the most difficult to deal with. Anxiety can force a person into solitude and prevent you from living a happy and fulfilled life. It can swallow you into obscurity, leaving you feeling judged, uncertain and powerless.'
'Zorba is the larger- than- life passionate, earthy and unpredictable protagonist of Nikos Kazantzakis’ 1946 novel: Zorba the Greek. The original Greek title was The Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas, but as the novel was widely translated and it became renowned internationally it was eventually and extemporaneously renamed Zorba the Greek.
Interestingly, the Alexis character was actually based on a real person named Yorgis Zorbas, who was a friend and mentor to Kazantzakis.
As legend goes, it was Zorbas who taught Kazantzakis the art of fully living in each moment without regret or fear and most importantly with a deep feeling of awe, gratitude and wonder for whatever life presents – be it pleasure or pain – the “full catastrophe.” Ultimately, Zorbas embodies a childlike willingness to surrender (allow) and trust whatever life manifests moment by precious moment – the good, the bad, or the ugly
“Those who met him [Yorgis Zorbas] speak of a person free of social conventions, illiterate yet ingenious, and profoundly philosophical, which is why he touched Kazantzakis’ soul.”'
'Of all the alternative approaches for cancer, Essiac Tea has been slighted and forgotten the most over the past couple of decades, especially with several other approaches that have received more sensational press than Essiac lately. Cannabis is great, but not so accessible and certainly not so cheap unless you can grow a lot of your own plants and make your own cannabis oil.'

'Ever since the World Health Organization admitted in 2011 that cell phone radiation is "possibly carcinogenic," and may be contributing to the global uptick in brain cancer cases, its far harder to label someone a hypochondriac for being concerned about the health consequences of exposure.[i] In fact, one study cited in their report showed a 40% increased risk for gliomas in the highest category of heavy users (reported average: 30 minutes per day over a 10-year period) – not exactly a small effect.
A recent study published in the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology confirms that the microwave radiation given off by mobile phones is capable of transforming normal cells into cancerous ones.'
Drugs to stop prostate enlargement have devastating side effects
'As men enter midlife their hormone status begins to change, just as it does in women but the change is more subtle. The high level of testosterone that has kept them fit, virile, reproductive, and free of degenerative disease starts to drop, and some of what is left begins to be converted into other hormones, in this case dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is DHT that powers prostate enlargement, and blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT is the goal of drugs that treat prostate enlargement.'
'Worldwide, lung cancer is a devastating and exceedingly common form of cancer. It ranks as the number one cause of cancer deaths for adults in the United States. According to the American Lung Cancer Association, back in 1987 it replaced breast cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in women.'
'From our environment, to our food, medicine and lifestyle, we are surrounded by things that depress our immune system. Knowing the culprits can make a big difference in how long and how often you encounter illness.'
Fluoride—A Cumulative Poison
'Approximately 98 percent of the fluoride you ingest in water is absorbed into your blood through your gastrointestinal tract. From there, it enters your body’s cellular tissues. On average, about 50 percent of the fluoride you ingest each day gets excreted through your kidneys.
The remainder accumulates in your teeth and bones,3 pineal gland,4 and other tissues—including your blood vessels, where it can contribute to calcification. According to a 2012 study published in the journal Nuclear Medicine Communications:'
Painful hemorrhoids, high blood pressure and skin issues, such as psoriasis, all have something in common: Blood flow. Research finds these three issues can all be successfully treated with the pine bark extract called Pycnogenol.
'In a flurry of research on one of the most efficacious natural extracts known to exist (see: 80 diseases that benefit from pycnogenol on the GMI database), three recent clinical studies have shown that the French maritime pine bark extract, Pycnogenol, can treat psoriasis and hemorrhoids, and reduce hypertension.
The link between these three? They are all associated with the need for healthy blood flow.'
'The more research is released, the more legalization makes sense.
Back in the 1930s, the arguments to criminalize cannabis were bizarre and openly racist. The anti-pot crusader Harry Anslinger made all sorts of over-the-top claims, such as, “Marihuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marihuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters.”
Nowadays more than 100 million Americans say they’ve smoke pot, millions use cannabis regularly to treat illnesses and it is as legal as alcohol in two U.S. states. However, it remains illegal under federal law largely due to scare tactics ingrained in our society, which date back even prior to Anslinger.'

'Gluten Free is not healthy? Blasphemy –you must think someone has hijacked my blog, but it’s true. Just because a food is gluten free does not mean it is healthy.
Sadly, the recent popularity of “gluten free” has many thinking that if they eliminate gluten, they are on a healthy diet. As Michael Pollan wrote last year in the New York Times Magazine, “Gluten has become the bad nutrient of the moment.”
I think it’s time for those of us in the gluten free blogoshpere to admit that villainizing one ingredient is not enough when it comes to eating well.'

'Also known as Chinese white cabbage, bok choy is a leafy green vegetable with a long list of impressive health benefits, and a mild flavor that makes it perfect for a wide range of uses in the kitchen— you can use it to make salads and coleslaw, add it to soups, or, even juice it raw with other leafy greens.
Bok choy is the number one vegetable in China (in contrast to the US, where broccoli and Brussels sprouts are the most commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables), but it's also a favorite in other Asian cuisines, such as Vietnamese, Malaysian, and Thai.
If you're craving bok choy's crunchy goodness with an Oriental twist, then here's the perfect recipe for you…'
'According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Immunity to a disease is achieved through the presence of antibodies to that disease in a person’s system."[i] This, in fact, is the main justification for using vaccines to "boost" immunity, and a primary focus of vaccine research and development.
And yet, newly published research has revealed that in some cases no antibodies are required for immunity against some viruses.
Published in the journal Immunity in March, 2011, and titled, "B cell maintenance of subcapsular sinus macrophages protects against a fatal viral infection independent of adaptive immunity," researchers found that mice infected with vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) can suffer fatal invasion of their central nervous system even in the presence of high concentrations of "neutralizing" antibodies against VSV.'
4 Conventional Medical Practitioners That Will Guide You In The Wrong Direction When It Comes to Your Health
'They're losing their influence by the day and they can't stand it. Their colleges and institutions are now known as instruments of fear and they're panicking due to decreasing enrollments. Their followers are dropping like flies and there is nothing they can do about it.

Millions are converting to holistic approaches to health everyday because they've simply had enough of the disease care paradigm. Here are 4 disease care practitioners which are a much greater risk than benefit to your long-term health. '
