'Hormones, such as estrogen and insulin, are chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your health as they travel in your bloodstream throughout your entire body.  Some of the most common side effects of hormone imbalance include:
  • Infertility
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Low libido
  • Hair loss and hair thinning
Organs and glands like your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas regulate most of your hormone production and if your hormones become even slightly imbalanced it can cause major health issues.'


Five Steps to Heal IBS Naturally

‘As a certified Nutritional Therapist who specializes in digestive issues, I was recently asked to appear on a local TV show and talk about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a functional bowel disorder that is becoming increasingly common, if not epidemic, in our society.

IBS is becoming so common that you probably know someone who suffers with it.  About  10-15% of Americans are diagnosed with IBS though the majority don’t seek help for it.  They just learn to live with it.

The great news is that there’s a lot you can do to help relieve the symptoms of IBS naturally with food.

In my guest TV appearance, I shared five basic tips that can help heal IBS in many cases.   Now there’s only so much I could say in five minutes.  So after the video below I will expand on those tips.
These five tips are a great starting point if you or someone you know suffers with IBS.’


First Food Created with Synthetic Biology to Appear This Year

'Like real vanilla ice cream?  If so, get your fill now because by the end of this year it may be just a memory.  The Swiss company Evolva has developed a synthetic vanilla set to be released later this year. But this is no product of the food technology we’ve seen all our lives – the food technology that brought us margarine, monosodium glutamate and artificial flavors. This artificial vanilla will be the first major food additive created with synthetic biology.

What is that?

Synthetic biology is an emerging technology that goes way beyond genetic modification, the process of splicing DNA from one organism into another. It is the total and complete human engineering of biology.  The natural DNA sequence is removed from a cell, and a new computer created DNA sequence is placed into that cell.'


The Scary Truth About the New York City Flu Vaccine Mandate


'This year, 150,000 children will be added to the list of victims of forced vaccination. The leaders of New York City have mandated that all children under the age of six years old who attend day care or preschool must be vaccinated with the flu vaccine.

The official requirement mandates that all children between the ages of six months and five years who will be attending day care or preschool in New York City must be vaccinated between July 1 and December 31 of any given year. One health official claims that the rule won’t officially be enforced until the end of 2014, and a press release from the New York City Board of Health states that they will begin issuing violations on January 1, 2016. 

New York City already mandates that children must be vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis, chicken pox, and tetanus. The new mandate is expected to affect 150,000 children under the age of six. Daycare and preschool facilities will be required to enforce the mandates or face they will face fines.'


GMO plants, GMO people, and cancer


'There is an extraordinary parallel between what biotech corporations are doing with food plants, and what cancer researchers are trying to do with humans. 

The comparison is not only instructive, it reveals what the future holds.

The war against cancer has painted a picture of hope: genetic solutions, genetic modifications.

This, despite the fact that there are no successful genetic treatments for any form of human cancer.

The focus on genes is a diversion from obvious causes of cancer in the environment: industrial chemicals, pollutants, pesticides, food additives, and even pharmaceuticals.'

5 Health Problems Linked with Low-Level Pesticide Exposure

'Though pesticides are dangerous at high levels, recent studies have also suggested they may cause health problems at low levels of exposure, as well.

For years, we’ve been assured that the small amount of pesticides we ingest from foods won’t harm our health, but recent research is casting doubt on that theory. 

It’s true that high levels of exposure are more dangerous, and have been linked with cancer, memory loss, and Parkinson’s disease. But small amounts, such as those that many of us are exposed to on a daily basis, may also increase risk of health problems over time.

Here’s a glimpse at what the science has found, along with steps you can take to protect your family.'


How Stress and Negativity Prevent Cancer Healing

Suppressed science: Garlic proven to kill brain cancer cells without side effects

'A small group of researchers at Medical University of South Carolina discovered something that's useful for anyone willing to properly consume lots of garlic. They discovered that certain organo-sulfur compounds in garlic do kill brain cancer cells without disturbing healthy cells.

But they did this in 2007! It didn't get much mainstream press, if any. Did we miss something? Maybe Big Pharma is trying to figure out how to create those compounds synthetically to get a patent and pay the FDA for approval after offering dubious papers from sketchy trials.

'Of all the foods Mother Nature provides, few foods offer more of a “botanical bonanza” for your health than garlic. Garlic is a bulbous root closely related to the onion, mentioned in historical documents dating back 5,000 years—before its fame wafted into the rest of the known world.

Speaking of wafting, garlic’s nickname “stinking rose” is well-deserved due to its undeniably pungent aroma that some find objectionable, but others find intoxicating.

Numerous studies show garlic’s amazing health potential in nearly every area of your body, from clogged arteries to gangrene to preventing insect bites and ear infections. There is even evidence that garlic is able to help slow your aging process. When it comes to this magical bulb, what’s not to love?'


Fake ‘sweetener’ with fake ‘safety’ claim could spell another real disaster

'The phantom flavoring agent we’ve told you about in past blogs is now reportedly available as a food and beverage additive, and should be coming soon to a supermarket near you.

It’s even been given a name – Sweetmyx.

Only don’t expect to see that name listed among the ingredients of products that contain it. More than likely, it will simply be another “artificial flavor” or perhaps an “artificial sweetener,” with the only other clue to its presence being a magical reduction in calories. And while it will be making its debut in beverages manufactured by Pepsi, a Swiss company is reported to be finding ways to use it in all kinds of other processed foods.

But you might be relieved to hear it was declared safe – or at least “generally recognized as safe,” or GRAS. And that, of course, means the Food and Drug Administration has conferred an official stamp of safety on it, right?

Well, not exactly.'


Measles Witch Hunt: Anti-Vax Parents Burned at the Propaganda Stake

‘Stories about measles outbreaks in New York, California, and Texas have been in the news lately, complete with fear-inducing headlines and pro-vaccine propaganda.

Naturally, those who choose to opt out of vaccinations tend to be blamed for outbreaks.

Let’s start with some facts about measles.’


Place Mushrooms in Sunlight to Get Your Vitamin D

Agaricus brasiliensis

'Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that boosts the immune system and plays vital roles in human metabolism. Did you know that tasty mushrooms are one source for vitamin D, and that you can naturally multiply their levels by exposing them to sunlight?

We evolved living in more sunlight than today. We make our own vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin cells. Many people living in the northern hemisphere, however, suffer from lower levels of vitamin D during the fall, winter and spring. Fortunately, you can make your own supply of vitamin D-enriched mushrooms by simply exposing them to sunlight.'

'As we age, our ability to hear may decline. But, while age-related hearing loss may not be something we can totally prevent, we may not be completely powerless to stop it either, as is commonly believed. There are some natural therapies that may help repair some of the damage that leads to gradual changes in our hearing, and here are a few worth considering.'


How Cooking Can Change Your Life - Michael Pollan

Dear parents, are you being lied to?


'Dear Parents, You are being lied to. There are pharmaceutical companies who claim to be acting in the best interests of your children, but they’re putting your health and even lives at risk for the sake of profits. There are some doctors, who, despite not being trained on the history of, lack of science behind, adverse reactions, or additives in vaccinations, refuse to read the package inserts and contrary scientific evidence, and do not inform you of the true risks of a vaccine so you can make an educated decision. You’re being lied to…because you’re told you’re just a parent, and you don’t have a say.'


Cancer Patient Walks Away from Hospice after Cannabis Treatment

'Regardless of the fact that several sessions of chemo or radiation lowers one’s chance of getting healed from so called “alternative” methods, it appears that cannabis treatment can overcome that obstacle.

Stan and Barb Rutner had already had bouts with cancer earlier in their lives. Barb twice treated breast cancer with orthodox treatments and her version of visualization. Stan managed to get through non-Hodgkin lymphoma after six months of treatment. Of course, cancer seems to like to return after remissions from mainstream treatments.  And this time, when they were older, it looked like the end for Stan.'


German New Medicine and the 5 Biological Laws

'I have always felt that many of our health problems are caused by a Physical, Chemical or Emotional trauma to our autonomic nervous system. I discovered this phenomenon in 1979 while working with Migraine Headache patients. They had a very common statement “ever since” which was followed by an account of a physical, emotional or chemical event. In 1980 I started on a journey around the world. 

I returned home in 1982 and went back into practice without finding a scientific answer.

In 1979 Dr. Ryke Hamer also made a very similar discovery. He has spent his life trying to prove this phenomenon to the scientific community. I hope that by reading the following article you will have a better understanding of why I rely so heavily on the patient history.'

ED Note: Please switch to fair trade organic coffee if you haven't. Other coffee plant beans are heavily sprayed with toxins and sometimes enslaved children are forced to pick them.

'Just decades ago doctors and health professionals were warning about the dangers of having too much coffee because of the risk that caffeine was thought to have on the body.

However, the last decade has shed a lot of light on the health benefits of coffee and its relationship to cancer.

Many decade or more long studies have been coming to a close and the results have been changing everything the medical profession thought they knew about coffee and how it influences the risks of getting cancer.

Study after study has been showing the cancer fighting properties of coffee because of the rich antioxidants it contains.'


Psychoneuroimmunology—How Inflammation Affects Your Mental Health

By Dr. Kelly Brogan

 'Psychoneuroimmunology. This is what I aim to practice. Medical terms of this length command our respect for the interconnectedness of different subspecialties, for the futile segmentation and compartmentalization of the body into different organ systems.

As discussed in this previous article I wrote for Dr. Mercola, deconstructing the serotonin model of depression, psychiatry is in a crisis. It can no longer stand on its own, throwing more and more medications at its perceived target.

It seems, therefore, fitting that psychiatry would follow the investigative path of other lifestyle-triggered chronic diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and heart disease. There already exists a bidirectional relationship between all of the major chronic diseases and psychiatric diagnoses (patients who struggle with chronic diseases are more likely to be depressed and vice versa).

The role of inflammation, across these disease states, is better elucidated each day. Let's deconstruct what is known as it applies to mental health.'


Soma Water Filters: High Style, No Substance


'Recently there's been a lot of buzz about a new water filter.
It's beautiful, innovative, eco-friendly, and totally unique.
At first glance I was impressed, but what I found upon investigation, was astounding and infuriating.

Readers of my site know that posting critical product reviews is not my thing, but this company appears to be perpetrating one of the most sophisticated health cons I've seen in awhile.

So I'm compelled to expose it.

After reading the post you'll see what I mean, and hopefully together we can divert a lot of people away from this impostor.'
