Find out more about the amazing nutrient CoQ10


'Coenzyme Q10, known as CoQ10, is highly regarded as a super antioxidant. But is it for real? CoQ10 gets a lot of good press, but it's not cheap. So to buy and try or not to buy and try is the question. Not all supplements live up to their reputation, and not all supplements are right for everyone. Let's examine CoQ10 a bit.

What it is and isn't

CoQ10 is not a magic bullet. It is an important compound that our bodies produce, but production declines as we age. It functions best in conjunction with a decent diet and other quality supplements. Foods such as organic organ meats, oily fish, spinach, peanuts, and whole grains provide some CoQ10.'


FACT: Chemotherapy KILLS More People Than It “Cures”

'Here’s what Dr. Allen Levin says about this topic: “Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade, yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors.” In his book, The Topic of Cancer: When the Killing Has to Stop, Dick Richards cites a number of autopsy studies which have shown that cancer patients actually died from conventional treatments before the tumor had a chance to kill them.
Just think about it…'

Seasoning Blends - FB

'Are you still buying all of your seasoning mixes at the store? It is so simple and cost effective to make your own blends.

For many of these recipes, you may even have all of the ingredients in your spice cupboard already. Store bought seasoning blends are chocked full of chemicals, additives and a lot of times even hidden gluten. Skip the additives and save money!' 


High Intake of Cholesterol Shown to Actually Repair Damaged Brains


'Including high-cholesterol foods as part of a healthy diet may not be the poor dietary choice we have all been told it is, suggests a new study published in the journal Nature Medicine. It turns out that cholesterol actually helps increase production of an important component of the nervous system that facilitates proper nerve cell communication, and prevents the onset of brain diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.'


The Persecution of Maryanne Godboldo: Detroit Prosecutors Still Going After Mom Who Refused to Drug Her Daughter

'On March 24, 2011, the Maryanne Godboldo case garnered international headlines when images of a battle-ready SWAT team, tanks and a helicopter, were unleashed upon a Detroit mother for refusing to administer a dangerous and potentially lethal antipsychotic drug to her daughter. 

The illegal seizure of the then 13-year old caused a firestorm of press and public outcry. By December 11th, 2011, nine months and numerous court battles later, Godboldo was acquitted of all charges based on the unconstitutional and illegal seizure of the child.

But Detroit prosecutors seemed hell bent on making an example of Maryanne Godboldo, attempting and failing twice in the last few months to prosecute her. Last Friday, July 11th, 2014, there was loud applause in the court when Judge Gregory Bill reaffirmed the dismissal of criminal charges against the Detroit mother for a second time this year.'


7 Reasons To Eat Dark Chocolate

8 Reasons To Eat Dark Chocolate

'Great news for chocolate lovers. Studies show that dark, raw, chocolate with the high cacao content (minimum 70%) can have many positive health effects. Here are just some of the reasons you should eat more.

All chocolate is not created equally. Here we discuss the benefit of dark chocolate. The darker the chocolate, with less sugar, milk, and other ingredients, the closer it is to cacao. 

A content of at least 70% to 90% cacao in dark chocolate is both tasty and healthy. (Milk chocolate contains milk, which negates any health benefits, emulsifiers and high amounts of added sugar). Some of the major cheap chocolate producers have been found to be using child slaves in Africa to pick cacao, so opt for fairtrade and organic wherever possible.'


Thyroid Hormone Testing: What’s the Best TSH Level?

Thyroid Testing

'Your doctor says you don’t need treatment, but could he or she be wrong?

Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is secreted by cells in the front part of the pituitary gland. This tiny area in the brain regulates the key endocrine function of the thyroid gland by stimulating production of thyroxin, the main thyroid hormone.

TSH is the main hormone tested by your doctor to determine if your thyroid gland is functioning properly. Too much TSH means the pituitary gland is trying to get a sluggish thyroid gland to work better. Too little means there is enough thyroxin in your body so TSH remains low until more is needed.

If the TSH is too high you have a condition called hypothyroidism, or an under-functioning thyroid gland. If it’s extremely low, you have an overactive thyroid gland, or hyperthyroidism.' 


50 Ways to Increase Enzymes In Your Diet

 50 Ways to Increase Enzymes In Your Diet

'I have a t-shirt that says, “The revolution will not be pasteurized”. On the back it says “Drink raw milk.” I wear it proudly because I believe so strongly in the health benefits of drinking raw, unpasteurized milk. (You can get one from the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund — click here.)

Pasteurization: Killing Bugs in Pathogenic Milk

When I learned about the history of milk, I was surprised to find out that pasteurization began as a way to kill pathogens (bad bacteria) in milk from unhealthy cows in some of America’s first factory farms. 

These were cows being fed a grain mash leftover from whiskey distilleries in the late 1800s. The milk was so tainted, it was blue. They had to add chalk to make it white. No wonder the infant mortality rate shot up to 50% in cities where the poor were feeding this milk to their infants. (Source: The Untold Story Of Milk by Dr. Ron Schmid)'


Are Your Food Allergies Silently Making You Fat?

'According to medical studies, it is estimated that over 60% of the population suffers from one form of food allergies or sensitivities. I'm not talking about the traditional food allergy associated with a constriction of the throat, a rash, or immediate digestive issues. Instead, over half of us are affected with a 'silent' food allergy that goes undiagnosed. 

These allergies can lead to: headaches (including migraines), joint pain, arthritis, hyperactivity, skin rashes, asthma, dry cough, wheezing, diarrhea, kidney damage and elevated liver enzymes. Food allergies can make you feel lethargic, sleepy, or low in energy, especially after eating. They can also be responsible for mood swings and cravings. And worst of all, unexplained weight-gain!'

Michigan Dept of Agri Forces Farmer to Dump 248 Gallons of Organic Milk and Break 1200 Free Range Eggs

‘While Americans in the nearby city of Detroit face life in third world conditions, unable to even afford running water, the state of Michigan decided to direct its resources towards cracking down on a small food co-op in Standish for having the utter audacity to provide milk, butter, cream and eggs to people who bought shares in the organic dairy.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture must be so proud of their deeds, after they forced Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, the owners of Hill High Dairy and Jenny Samuelson, the owner of My Family Co-op, to dump out 248 gallons of milk, to break 100 dozen eggs, and to destroy an undisclosed amount of fresh cream, butter and cheese.’


5 Ways Corrective Lenses Break Down Your Eyesight and How To Improve Your Vision Naturally

'Optometrists just like much of the medical community are fixated on short-term solutions which don't address the root cause of problems. Few optometrists will admit and the greatest majority are unaware that glasses and contacts are almost guaranteed to destroy your eyesight over time. 

Unfortunately, they're not trained on natural and preventative solutions that improve vision in the long-term because they simply do not understand the way the eye works. Contrary to popular belief, your vision doesn't have to decline over time. With regular exercise of the muscles that control your eye movements and visual acuity, you can reduce eyestrain and maintain or even improve your vision without any destructive correctional conventions such as laser surgery, glasses or contact lenses.'

12 Facts About Microwaves That Should Forever Terminate Their Use

Photo Credit:Prevent Disease

'Are microwaves a benign bastion of convenience or a sinister contributor to biological and nutritional damage? A growing percentage of people are now heeding the advice of holistic health experts and disposing of their microwaves due to the dangers of microwaved food. Regardless of where you stand, humans are the only animals on the planet who destroy the nutritional value of their food before eating it, and the use of microwaves is no exception.

Microwaves are a source of electromagnetic energy (a form of nonionizing form of radiation) electronically generated. When penetrating the aliments, they trigger an inner rotation of the water molecules inside the food. This rotation triggers a friction between the molecules and the result is a rapid growth in temperature. 

Microwaves use super-fast particles to literally radiate the contents of water inside food and bring it to boil. Not only has microwave use been linked to causing infertility in men, but it also denatures many of the essential proteins in the food making them virtually indigestible.'


Kimchi Packs Proven Health Benefits

'Koreans have been enjoying salted and fermented vegetables known as kimchi for about 2000 years.  It's typically served with steamed rice at every Korean meal.  But this spicy dish is much more than a condiment. 

Researchers in Korea just published a comprehensive review of the health benefits of kimchi as a probiotic.  In it they cite 130 studies attesting to the amazing healing properties of this humble food. 
Probiotics are the good bacteria populating the gut.  The human gut contains over 400 strains of bacteria and the mix of different strains in each person is very individual.'


The Corporate Takeover of ‘All Natural’ Food

‘Walk through your local grocery store these days and you’ll see the words “all natural” emblazoned on a variety of food packages. The label is lucrative, for sure, but in discussing the natural label few have remarked on what’s really at stake — the natural ingredients and the companies themselves.

If you take a look at some of the favorite organic and natural food brands, you’ll see they’re owned by some of the largest conventional companies in the world. Coca-Cola owns Odwalla and Honest Tea. PepsiCo. owns Naked Juice. General Mills owns Lara Bar. Natural and organic food acquisitions aside, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and General Mills all opposed California’s GMO Proposition 37 that would require GMO food labeling.

Today, some of those companies touting an all-natural list of grains and sugars can be seen changing the ingredients in their natural food products as the natural foods’ distribution channels are pushed to larger and larger markets.’


How To Heal Cavities – The Astonishing Claims Of The Oil Pullers

How To Heal Cavities

'We discovered an astonishing report made by people practicing the art of oil pulling for dental health. (The link to the report follows after our introduction to the topic and further research.) A husband and wife couple experimented with oil pulling (swishing coconut oil in the mouth for 20 minutes each day) and claim assertively that their cavities have healed as a result, leaving their teeth in far better condition than they were previously. They give a good explanation of the theory behind their claims and it makes good reading.'


Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet Treats Type 2 Diabetes and Reduces Need for Diabetes Drugs

'Research from Italy's University Hospital at the Second University of Naples has determined that a Mediterranean Diet treats type 2 diabetes and decreases the need for diabetes medication.

The research, funded by the American Diabetes Association, followed 215 middle-aged men and women who were recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. They were divided into two groups. One group was given a low-fat diet and the other a low-carbohydrate Mediterranean diet.'


Prevent and heal macular degeneration with aerobic exercise

Vision Of Eyechart With Glasses

'Many of us think of exercise as a way to stay slim and have good cardiovascular tone, but that’s just the beginning. Exercise sends a powerful call to the body to produce various growth factors that mediate several aspects of health, including brain health and cognition. 

New research is showing that these factors are also protective against age-related vision loss including macular degeneration, a sight-robbing disease that occurs when neurons in the central part of the retina deteriorate. Macular degeneration currently affects more than 1.75 million people in the U.S., and the number is expected to soar to 3 million by 2020 as the population ages.'


Why The Benefits of Circumcision Are Based On False Assumptions, Erroneous Conclusions and Misleading Medical Information

'The current generation of infant males will have the lowest routine circumcision rates in 40 years. Recent surveys suggest that parents who say yes to circumcision end up regretting their decision. Courts in Europe have recently deemed the procedure equivalent to grievous bodily harm. The claimed health benefits are also being exposed for lacking any scientific evidence and are commonly based on myths and folklore.'


Dementia prevention: coconut oil continues succeeding; Big Pharma keeps failing

'There have been three attempts since 2012 to create an effective and not too terribly toxic pharmaceutical solution to Alzheimer's. They all failed and even caused worsening conditions with an occasional death during testing.

A few years ago Dr. Mary Newport's discovery of using coconut oil to reverse her husbands advanced Alzheimer's disease made a big splash in the alternative health media.

Some of this splash managed to wet a few pages of the mainstream media (MSM), and Dr. Newport wrote a book about her discovery for hubby's turn-around called Alzheimer's Disease: What If There Was a Cure?: The Story of Ketones.'


Agave Nectar: Good or Bad?

'Is agave nectar good? Is agave nectar bad? Believe it or not, I thought I’d written a definitive post on this topic.

As it turns out, I hadn’t. Earlier this week a reader emailed me, seeking an answer to the classic question: Agave nectar — good or bad? She pointed out that she’d done a search for agave nectar on this site and only turned up two entries. In one, I’d said to avoid it. In another, I mentioned that I’d used agave nectar while experimenting with kombucha and didn’t enjoy the results.

So, she concluded: “Why, if agave nectar is a natural sweetener, should it not be used? What about it is bad? I’ve been preferring it to honey and maple syrup on my waffles, pancakes, and yogurt.”

I realized then that I needed to post a definitive guide to agave nectar, answering the question once and for all. This is it.'


How Ayahuasca Can Revolutionize Psychotherapy

'A look at the psychoactive brew that brings users a spiritual payoff for their “work”

Just before dusk, 18 strangers entered a yurt on a Midwestern homestead. Peruvian tapestries decorated the walls of the large, round structure, and rattles stood poised for ceremony.
The participants — professional men and women ages 35 to 65 — put on comfortable clothing and set up sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets. Everyone got a plastic bucket, cheerfully colored in green, red, or blue.

“It looks like a big pajama party,” joked the host, Kim.
The shaman, a North American who had trained in South America for more than a dozen years, took a seat at the front and led the group through a conversation about what to expect.
Stay with your breath, he advised. There’s no talking, no touching. Purging in any direction is a distinct possibility. The bucket is your friend.'


Arrive Healthy! Reduce Airplane Stress

'When I worked for the New Jersey Nets, I traveled 17 days out of each month for the 2000 NBA season. The job was great, but I felt the travel took years off my life.
I remember waking up in hotel rooms swollen. My eyes were puffy, the ring on my finger was tight, and my feet were still swollen from the plane ride.

I remember looking in the mirror and saying, I think I have aged 10 years in just a few months.
I was highly motivated to figure out why this was happening to me, and how to mitigate the insidious stress of air travel.

You may be surprised to learn the many health risks associated with air travel. For example, in a new study performed at Auburn University in conjunction with the FAA, bacteria can stay alive and continue to be infectious for more than a week on the arm rests, seat pockets, seats and bathroom doors of commercial aircrafts. The dry air is said to contribute to their extra-long life on airplanes.'


A Recipe For Fat Flush Water (It Literally Flushes Fat)


'Fat is broken down when the body uses its fat deposits to produce energy, the triglycerides in the fat cells are removed. Then, these are broken down into fatty acids and glycerols and are then absorbed into your muscle tissue and internal organs where they are then broken down even further through various chemical processes.

If the products leftover from these chemical processes are not used by the body as energy, they are then considered waste products and need to be removed from the body. This is where the role of water comes in.'
