Infographic: Eastern vs. Western Medicine

 http://tcmdiscovery.com/Ethnic-Minority-Medicine/UploadPic/2008-12/200812231937181471.jpg


 'There is often a large barrier between those in favor of Eastern medicine and those in favor of Western medicine.

Methods of healing are drastically different, with Western medicine being much more ‘unnatural’ than Eastern.


Eastern philosophy uses whole-food formulas to nourish the body’s natural healing abilities, while Western philosophy isolates and forces therapeutic actions to ‘treat’ disease.


Eastern examination works with the elements earth, fire, wood, metal, and water to interpret the relationship between the physiology and pathology of the human body and the natural environment. Western medicine uses vital signs like height, weight, and body temperate, and general appearance for health examination.


Due to the harsh, ineffective, and dependency-driven aspects of Western medicine, Eastern medical philosophies are regaining popularity.'

Big Pharma-Govt Wants Medical Cannabis Monopoly

http://www.conspiracyplanet.com/images/cannbispharma.jpg

'Barthwell frames Big Pharma cannabis as best way to bring marijuana into medical usage: "The safety and advisability of any prescriptive medicine should depend on years of careful scientific scrutiny, not whims at the ballot box by individuals who lack the qualifications to make such decisions. 

Allowing cannabis to circumvent FDA approval sets a dangerous precedent and puts us on a slippery slope." Big Pharma's big contributions to many legislators means they have many elected officials willing to see things the drug companies' way on this, as on many other issues.'

Synthetic ‘Vitamin D’ Useless in Heart Health. So It’s Spun As ‘Vitamin D Has No Benefit.’

 http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_DnmjuQRMFfc/TC2PLP45bqI/AAAAAAAACag/nIaTwrHcwaE/s640/Big+Pharma+well+org_crime.JPG


'Rather humorously, a pharmaceutical company failed in its attempt to prove its synthetic Vitamin D benefits people with heart disease—and failed so badly that they can’t spin it as a success. However, their junk science is being used to claim that Vitamin D is not beneficial in heart health—and that is nothing short of a lie.'

Many Of You Will Not Believe Some Of The Things Americans Are Doing Just To Survive



'You might not want to read this article if you have a weak stomach. Most Americans have absolutely no idea what is going on in the dark corners of America, and when people find out the truth it can come as quite a shock. Many of you will not believe some of the things Americans are doing just to survive.

Some families are living in sewers and drain tunnels, some families are living in tents, some families are living in their cars, some families will make ketchup soup for dinner tonight and some families are even eating rats. Some homeless shelters in America are so overloaded that they are actually sending people out to live in the woods.

 As you read this, there are close to 50 million Americans that are living below the poverty line, and that number rises a little bit more every single day.

America was once known as the greatest nation on earth, but now there is decay and economic despair almost everywhere you look. Yes, money certainly cannot buy happiness, but the lack of it sure can bring a lot of pain. As the economy continues to decline, the suffering that we see all around us is going to get a lot worse, and that is a very frightening thing to think about.'

Doctors Now ‘Firing’ Patients Who Reject Vaccination

 

'For many years government and health officials have been trying to push vaccination on the people. While childhood vaccine exemption rateshave been increasing, we have been seeing an overall increase in the amount of people receiving the flu shot each year.

There have even been numerous occasions where legislators and others have called for mandatory vaccinations that could affect health care workers in particular. In fact, many pediatricians are so angry with their patients who refuse vaccination that they are ‘firing’ patients and their families, refusing to play their role as doctor.'

Feds Threaten Banks to Deny Accounts to Lawful Medical Cannabis Shops

http://mediad.publicbroadcasting.net/p/michigan/files/201201/Medical-Marijuana-leaf.jpg

'One of the underhanded ways the feds are attempting to defeat legal medical marijuana is by preventing banks from doing business with dispensaries. Because medical marijuana is illegal under federal law, federally insured banks even in states where it's legal were notified in 2011 to be suspicious of marijuana-related banking activities. 

The warnings stated that the business of marijuana is a "high-risk area for money laundering" which would put the banks at risk of racketeering and laundering charges.'

Home Remedy For Sore Throats: Experiencing Colds Is Actually Beneficial To Your Health

With all of that said, you should know of a natural remedy for a sore throat that can often precede a cold or flu. Yes, that feeling of having crushed glass floating around in your throat can often be remedied without conventional over-the-counter analgesics.'

What You're Up Against if Hospitalized

Is Cancer An Ancient Survival Program Unmasked?

'Ever since Richard Nixon declared a war on cancer in 1971 through the signing of the National Cancer Act,[i] over a hundred billion dollars has been spent by our government on research and drug development in an attempt to eradicate the disease, with trillions more spent by the cancer patients themselves, but with disappointing results. 
 
Even after four decades of waging full-scale conventional (surgery and chemo) and nuclear (radiotherapy) war against cancer, close to one in every four Americans will be diagnosed with the disease within their lifetimes. Could this colossal failure reflect how profoundly misunderstood the condition is, and misguided are our attempts to prevent and treat it?'

The Coming World Government

'Lucid and aware people observing world events unfold over the past decade or so – say, since September 11, 2001 – will have surely asked themselves what on Earth is going on here? We see ever-growing violence, war, outright lies, invasions, false flags, social upheavals, poverty, ruin and the death of millions… The world’s become a pretty dangerous and pitiful place to live in, and it only gets worse…

Which leads us to the obvious question: Why? Why is all this happening? Can we explain it away as Man’s wicked nature? Or his folly and ignorance? Perhaps just a series of bad mistakes and wrong turns on key issues?'

Theobroma Cacao: A Taste of the Fountain of Youth

'Theobroma cacao, the scientific name of the plant from which raw cocoa powder is derived and the main ingredient in chocolate, literally means “food of the gods.” 

It is a famous plant with a lengthy and rich history; a symbol of love that cuts across cultures; a power food packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals, minerals and the building blocks of neurotransmitters and other “feel good” hormones; and a medicine backed by modern research with far-reaching implications for treating cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases. 

Some experts are even saying the health-giving properties of cacao will potentially benefit public health equal to or more than antibiotics and anesthesia. The beautiful thing is that raw organic cocoa, a derivitive of the cacao plant, is readily available in health food stores.'

Amish raw milk dairyman Dan Allgyer shuts down his farm in the face of FDA harassment and court injunction

 http://www.examiner.com/images/blog/replicate/EXID8543/images/Raw_Milk--Photo-Claravale-Farm(1).jpg


'Pennsylvania Amish farmer Dan Allgyer has decided to shutter his farm, ending his ordeal with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Justice Department.

He made his decision after Judge Lawrence Stengler went along with the agencies, and imposed a permanent injunction on Allgyer last week for supplying the private Grassfed on the Hill food club with raw milk. 

I wasn’t able to reach Allgyer, but he told those who run the food club that the decision was a personal one, based in significant measure on the family stress created by the two years of federal government harassment, beginning in February 2010, when FDA agents sought to inspect his farm without a warrant.'

Modern Book Burning: Banning Natural Medicine in Educational Institutions

 'Book burners are still around, though they take a different approach from their medieval ancestors. The new methods are a bit subtler. They even claim to be based on science.
 
But what kind of science objects to teaching subjects that people want to study? Surely, if a scientist is sure of research’s validity, there would be no concern about teaching topics that they don’t consider to be scientific.

That, though, appears not to be the case. The book burners of today now call for banning of certain topics in universities. They’re trying to ban natural medicine.'

New Study: Marijuana Smokers Breathe Easy Says The University of Alabama

 http://futurepocket.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/marijuana_3.gif


'The marijuana-only smokers also had 8.2 milliliters more air exhaled after a full inhalation in comparison to non-smokers while tobacco-only smokers had 19 milliliters less. Researchers were surprised to find an increased airflow with increased exposure to marijuana up to a certain level. The results are surprising, because marijuana smoke contains similar noxious ingredients and chemicals as tobacco smoke, which is known to impair lung function. 

Until now it has been unclear whether regular marijuana smoking led to the same injuries to the lungs. It was speculated by Dr. Keresz that the way pot is smoked (the common exercise of holding one's breath after inhaling cannabis smoke to increase its heady effects) might have some cause to people to doing well with the lung function test.

Pulmonologist, Dr. Donald Tashkin from the University of California also added that one reason marijuana smoke might not be as harmful as tobacco smoke, despite containing similar noxious ingredients, may be the fact that its active ingredient, THC, has anti-inflammatory effects. “We don’t know for sure,” he said, “but a very reasonable possibility is that THC may actually interfere with the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.”'

Green tea found to reduce disability in the elderly




'Green tea could help pensioners stay in the pink, according to a study. Those who drank the beverage stayed more physically active than their peers, researchers found. Coffee and standard tea did not provide this benefit. 

Researchers tracked the health of almost 14,000 men and women aged 65-plus for three years, noting what they ate and drank and factoring in data on any care they needed. The more green tea they consumed, the more mobile and self-sufficient they were.'

The Doors Of Perception: Why Americans Will Believe Almost Anything

 http://timewellness.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/135622606a.jpg?w=600&h=400&crop=1
 by Dr. Tim O'Shea
 
'Aldous Huxley's inspired 1956 essay detailed the vivid, mind-expanding, multisensory insights of his mescaline adventures. By altering his brain chemistry with natural psychotropics, Huxley tapped into a rich and fluid world of shimmering, indescribable beauty and power. 
 
With his neurosensory input thus triggered, Huxley was able to enter that parallel universe described by every mystic and space captain in recorded history. Whether by hallucination or epiphany, Huxley sought to remove all controls, all filters, all cultural conditioning from his perceptions and to confront Nature or the World or Reality first-hand - in its unpasteurized, unedited, unretouched, infinite rawness.
 
Those bonds are much harder to break today, half a century later. We are the most conditioned, programmed beings the world has ever known. Not only are our thoughts and attitudes continually being shaped and molded; our very awareness of the whole design seems like it is being subtly and inexorably erased. The doors of our perception are carefully and precisely regulated. Who cares, right?'

Valentine's Day: Chocolate Tantric Pie Recipe



'We did a Big Sur themed dinner and each recipe came from a different Big Sur restaurant cookbook. The Chocolate Tantric Pie was our dessert recipe and it came from Esalen. 

When I heard the pie name, it made me chuckle because of the infamous couples tantra workshops at Esalen. This is a very rich and tasty chocolate pie that is very easy to make. You have to really love chocolate though. My biggest advice is to not put much of the candied ginger on top because a little can go a long way.'

 12 Top Ingredients to Avoid in Personal Care Products

12 Top Ingredients to Avoid in Personal Care Products 

'The average personal care product contains about 12 chemicals. From shampoo and lotion to sunscreen and mouthwash, the products we lather, rub and spray onto ourselves may not be healthy. If you think there’s no cause for concern, you might be wrong–more than one-third of all personal-care products contain at least one ingredient linked to cancer, and less than 20 percent of the chemicals in personal-care products have been tested for safety.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t regulate or limit the use of chemicals in personal-care products or require that all of the ingredients be listed on the label. Despite this, many manufacturers do list ingredients on product packaging and on their websites.

Check the labels on your personal care products; if you see any of these 12 chemicals, it might be wise to avoid it. You can also check for a product’s safety rating on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.'

Barefoot Doctor Healing Techniques

 http://img2.imagesbn.com/images/22430000/22430152.JPG

'The Barefoot Doctor healing techniques have mainly been identified as Chinese techniques used by the native healers of China. These practitioners would walk from village to village (thus, the name "barefoot" Doctors) and treat all manner of diseases using these tools. The Barefoot Doctor techniques include cupping, moxibustion, dermal hammer, scraping, needling, bleeding and massage. Barefoot Doctors were also skilled at bone setting. 

Although they may sound like exotic Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, these techniques are not native to just China. 

The Barefoot Doctor tools are actually folk remedies, which have been, and still are, used throughout most cultures in the world. Among the many cultures using some of these tools are Chile, Argentina, France, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, India, Bali, Java, Czech Republic, Russia, Iran, Mexico, Italy, Vietnam, Japan, China, Korea and several Native American Tribes of North and South America. People of these cultures have not only used them in the past, but many still practice them today, especially in rural areas.'

Shyness in a child and depression after bereavement could be classed as mental illness in controversial new reforms

Many who are shy, bereaved, eccentric, or have unconventional romantic lives will suddenly find themselves labelled as “mentally ill”.'

Herbal Syrup making. "Hawthorn Berry" PROVEN HEART/Blood Pressure TONIC!


Hawthorn For The Heart

'In Europe, thousands of doctors prescribe hawthorn to prevent cardiovascular disease or to help alleviate symptoms of mild to moderate problems. 

It is considered so safe that it is sometimes prescribed concurrently with heart medications such as digitalis. Hawthorn is also considered a mildly calming herb for the nervous system--an appropriate bonus considering that stress and nervousness often accompany cardiovascular problems. 

In my own experience, it is the first herb, besides garlic, that should be added to one's daily dietary regimen when there is any suspicion of problems of cardiovascular disease. 

If one has a family member who has heart or vascular problems, or for people eating a diet that includes moderate to high levels of fat (especially from dairy products or red meat), or who are stressed or using stimulants (such as coffee), hawthorn is an excellent protector.'
