Ancient Chia Seeds Reduce Modern Heart Disease Risk

Ancient Chia Seeds Reduce Modern Heart Disease Risk

'It wasn't long ago that the mention of chia conjured the image of a potted plant. Almost everyone had heard of chia thanks to the popularity of Chia Pets, those fuzzy clay animals and people that sprout bright green fur and hair. But recently, the seeds of the chia plant have been rediscovered and popularized as a superfood that should definitely be a daily part of every healthy diet.'

Aluminum in Vaccines Is an Autism Trigger: New Study

Crime Scene with syringes and US flag

'Autism is a perfect storm of genetics triggered by vaccine toxins. However, blaming the genes is like blaming a dry field for causing a fire. In autism, the spark that triggers the conflagration is usually aluminum in vaccines.'


'The debates about autism’s cause may be coming to an end. A new study cleverly uses statistical analyses on the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database. It leaves little doubt that the primary issue is aluminum adjuvants in vaccines, with effects of acetaminophen (known as paracetamol in Europe), vaccine mercury, live attenuated vaccine microbes, and genetic susceptibility as linked factors.
Autism is a perfect storm of genetics triggered by vaccine toxins.'

5 Reasons Why Butter is a Superfood

5 reasons why butter is a superfood

'One stick of butter in 24 hours

I ate a quarter pound of butter today. Yep, that is one whole stick. If you want to know how that is possible, let me explain:

4 tbs. mixed into a batch of Paleo Cornbread Muffins

1 tbs. slathered on top of said muffins

2 tbs. stirred into warm butternut squash pureƩ

1 tbs. tossed with steamed carrots, salt, and chopped fresh thyme

You may be holding back a gag reflex after reading that. Perhaps you are still staring at your computer screen mute shock. In either case, you are probably wondering WHY I committed this senseless act of nutritional suicide.

I eat butter because I am on a mission to heal my body. And, believe it or not, butter is a healing superfood. Here’s why:'

Thoughts On Detaching From Ego And Walking In Peace


By Dr. Ben Kim


'As I approach the last few years of my fourth decade on planet earth, I find myself feeling grateful for some of the conclusions that I've been able to draw from various life experiences. One in particular that I try to hold close to my heart, especially in times of triumph and disaster, is this:
The more we detach from our egos, the greater potential we have to experience peace.
I'm far from being an expert on varying schools of psychology, so please excuse me if any of the following thoughts don't jive with what you might find in the original works of Freud, Jung, or Adler.
Here's some of what detaching from ego means to me:'

Eating Purple Cabbage Is Great For Your Skin And Prevents Cancer


'Besides lending itself as a food of art, adding wonderful color in salads and main dishes, purple cabbage with its antioxidant properties also works wonders for the skin and prevents cancer.

Along with other cole crops, cabbage is a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical that boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. A team of researchers at Ohio State University announced that anthocyanins, the compounds that give cabbage its purple color are capable of cutting the growth of colon cancer cells both in vitro and in rats by 50%-100%, with certain extracts even destroying up to 20% of the cancer cells while leaving healthy surrounding cells intact.'

Time For a Wake Up Call – The Vaccination Hoax Debunked!



“The only safe vaccine is a vaccine that is never used.” – Dr. James A. Shannon. National Institutes of Health

'Are you scared when you’re told you have to vaccinate your child with 49 doses in 14 vaccines before age 6? Or are you scared at the idea of not vaccinating and so “exposing” your child to serious illnesses? Are you scared about the school threatening you that if you don’t vaccinate you can’t enroll your child?

FEAR. That’s what all these pro-vaccine campaigns are based on. As a parent, what’s the biggest scare of all? When your child gets sick with a serious disease and you feel responsible for that. As you see, vaccine supporters couldn’t go wrong with this and developed a dogma that’s been bought over and over again over the years by people. The magic insurance policy to solve it all.'

Hemp, Cannabis, Reefer Madness, the Logging Industry and Big Pharma



'Reefer Madness was a politically motivated campaign produced by the logging industry to destroy hemp farming within the U.S.  By psychologically conjuring dark images of Marijuana smoking zombies to waft through the fabric of the collective mind; the logging cabal’s, unsubstantiated, claims succeeded in destroying the hemp farms, while, unto this day, the stigma of the ‘lunatic’ pot smoker continues to pervade and provoke the public mind. If anything, the reefer madness propaganda piece depicted in above link, probably better characterizes the tragedy of alcoholism more than it does those the authors intended to slander.

The pharmaceutical industry - officially sanctioned government dope pushers - would rather pedal, sell and breed their own form of addicts, with its more dangerous brand of ‘serotonin uptake inhibitors’ Haldol, Zoloft, Paxil  amongst many others, have already been linked to suicides and school shootings.'

Honey and Cinnamon: Not Just for Sweet Rolls Anymore


Editor's Note: Use raw organic honey and organic cinnamon.


'Honey is produced in almost all the countries in the world, and has been used for centuries to treat all kinds of ailments. But when combined with cinnamon, the medical benefits of honey become even more potent.

Using honey for medical reasons has no side effects at all. Researchers say that even diabetics aren’t harmed by the sweetness of honey, if it is taken in medicinal dosages. Western scientists have researched the effects of honey and cinnamon on a variety of illnesses and have discovered some amazing benefits.'

Salty Nasal Irrigation Safely Relieves Hay Fever Symptoms

Salty Nasal Irrigation Safely Relieves Hay Fever Symptoms

'Research from Italy's University of Milan has confirmed that nasal irrigation with a saline solution with more salt content significantly lessens allergy symptoms and the need for medications.

The research was conducted on 220 children with allergic rhinitis to grass pollen – commonly known as hayfever - who were between five and nine years old. The children were randomized into three groups. One group of 80 children was given nasal irrigation twice a day using a normal saline solution. Another group of 80 children was administered nasal irrigation twice a day using a hypertonic saline solution (containing more salt). The last group of 60 children was given no nasal irrigation.'

The Illusion Laid Bare -- Your Money and Your Life


'Don’t let the distractions, the fear, or the incalculable, meaningless numbers stop you from preparing for your future and your family’s.

Car Mechanics, Oncologists & Physics

Photo Credit: Dutch's Auto Service


'Ask a car mechanic which is more important to an engine working—the oil, gas, water or the air? Mechanics know more than doctors what’s wrong and how to fix it because they can grasp the basics. 

There are only four of them! Were it so in medicine we would be in a dawn of medical enlightenment instead of at the tail end of the age of pharmaceutical terrorism. In medicine we need vastly large brains to comprehend not four but the eight basic factors at the core of cell life.

Car mechanics understand the simplicity of the formula that makes or breaks a car engine’s performance. Even the lowly gas station attendant knows that it’s the oil, water, gas and air that are all necessary to run a motor. They know to check three out of the four as a matter of routine but doctors really don’t know what to check.'

Why American & European Fruits And Vegetables Have No Flavor

Farmers Market Tomatoes, by Isa Sorensen
Farmers Market Tomatoes, by Isa Sorensen (Mapless In Seattle)

'GMOs aren’t the only nasty thing from Agribusiness. Breeding for mass production instead of taste and nutrition has cost us. Little produce in supermarkets has flavor worth the trouble of eating, & the lack of nutrition is destroying health.'

'Now think about this.  There are two broad categories of tomatoes.
Type 1 is full of nutrition and flavor, but this type ripens inconsistently, and comes in all kinds of colour shades, shapes and textures.
Type 2 looks perfectly shaped, is in a uniform color, shows perfect behavior and ripens uniformly, but it also happens to have no flavor and little nutrition.
If you were a big US grocery chain, even a purportedly organic one, which type of tomato would you stock?
If you guessed Type 2, you would be right, and you would also solve the mystery of why not only American tomatoes, but the vast majority of fruits and vegetables in the USA have no flavor and are less nutritious compared to fruits and vegetables found in, say, a much-poorer country like India.'\

Audio Webinar: Hosted by the Co-Authors of Cancer Killers




"The official declaration of the war on cancer began in the 1970s, yet today the disease affects more people than ever. We raise millions of dollars for cancer awareness and prevention each year, but cancer rates continue to skyrocket. Maximized Living proposes that a cost-efficient, all-natural path to combat and kill cancer already exists.

If you already have cancer or know someone who does, this webinar will show you resources that exist to fight the disease without resorting to debilitating chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Dr. Ben Lerner, co-founder of Maximized Living and co-author of "The Cancer Killers," explains: "The great news about cancer is that people are not as genetically programmed to develop it as once thought. It's a lifestyle issue, not a genetic one. Science has shown that through some very simple steps, you can radically reduce your chances of getting cancer as well as dramatically increase your chance of overcoming it if you're dealing with this disease already."

System Announces It Will Use DNA Stolen From Babies


'For years, the system denied that blood samples from newborns were being taken at birth and databased into DNA ‘warehouses.’ Alex Jones and other alternative researchers railed against it for more than a decade. Now, that period of denial is over, and the same system is instead declaring its right to do so.

Bioethicists in the Science Translational Medicine journal argued that researchers should be able to retain and peruse the “genetic treasure trove” of blood samples taken during routine screenings at hospitals after birth, despite long-standing objections over privacy, parental rights and disclosure.

In fact, governments across the Western world — and almost every state in the United States — have been collecting, retaining, researching and cataloguing genetic material of babies without any statutory authority to do so, and without parental knowledge for decades.'

TAMIFLU PSYCHOLOGICAL SIDE EFFECTS


Hallucinations


'The use of Tamiflu can cause the person taking the medicine to hallucinate. This means he may see things that do not exist or are not present. He also may hear imaginary noises. He may feel sensations on his skin that do not exist. The person experiencing hallucinations may not realize he has a problem, so those around him must be aware of the potential of these problems. Those people around him should watch for signs of such serious side effects after the person takes Tamiflu.

The panel recommended that this warning be strengthened to say that "in some cases, these behaviors resulted in serious injuries, including death, in adult and pediatric patients."'

Millions Spent Defeating Prop 37-GMO's: Why They Don't Want Us To Know What We're Eating



Howard Vlieger began studying GMO crops in 1994 and is fortunate to work with some of the lead scientists in the world on research projects involving GMO crops. The real life experience that he has from being a farmer and working with farmers all across the US gives him a unique perspective on GMOs.

Howard has been giving presentations to educate people about GMOs for more than 6 years in 13 states. Howard serves on the board of directors for the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance (FARFA) and the Food Freedom Foundation.

Howard Vlieger and his organization Verity Farms have been researching the affects of genetically engineered crops on the soil, animals and humans since 1992. What they
have learned and see every day in 2012 is beyond spooky.

Show Highlights:

-The gut ecology is impaired when animals and humans consume GM organisms, at one tenth of a part per million

-BT Corn linked to poor conception rates, immune and digestive issues

-There are three top issues with genetic engineering of crops: the ecology of the soil, immune and digestive disruption and super weeds requiring more and more glyphosates.

-The birds and the bees are affected

-The story behind Roundup Ready Alfalfa, and it's not pretty

-These foreign proteins with GMO's are not digestible. Period

-Are you eating eggs fed GMO corn and Soy?

-The Germans are saying No to GMO's

-A strong immune system and our own garden are our best defense here.

-In 2010, 170 million acres of corn and soy were planted -- 92% GMO

-The Big Agriculture Companies get about 9 Billion Dollars per year in user fees alone from farmers using GMO seeds.

-Farmers and consumers are waking up to the dangers of GMO crops world wide

Bicarbonate/Carbon Dioxide Medicine




'Sodium bicarbonate aims for the heart of cancer by almost instantly increasing cell pH, cell voltage, cell oxygen as well as CO2 levels. Everyone knows that cancer hates the breath of oxygen as well as disliking the alkaline range, so to dismiss baking soda as a treatment for cancer is ludicrous.'


'My mother recovered two years ago from cancer using bicarbonate and maple syrup. She had a tumor 4 inches across and 10 inches long which punctured her lungs twice (how it was discovered). She had grade 3b non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Took her three months but she did it. Many thanks for writing your Sodium Bicarbonate book and being instrumental in helping saving my mums life.'

Yes on 37 says Rappoport is “disrupting the healing”




'An email sent to one person from a significant member of the YES ON 37 campaign thinks I’m getting in the way:

The people of California, who won’t be able to tell whether the food they’re eating is genetically modified? Does this healing involve whiskey, ice cream, yoga, campfires, moonshine, grief counselors, walks on the beach?
Much more importantly, this YES ON 37 leader writes:

“The reports of voter fraud are, to date, urban/internet legends created by folks who don’t understand the system.”

Digitally Engineered Disease: The Content of Discontent

Digitally Engineered Disease: The Content of Discontent

A Not-So-Hidden Health Threat

'There is an already pervasive and rapidly expanding force of disease that no doubt affects you on a daily basis. It is a potentially harmful force that many people, quite frankly, cannot resist and may actively seek exposure to like an unknowing addict. I am talking about electronic media which includes the news media, television, social media, email, and the internet in general. Many will, of course, immediately argue that electronic media is not all harmful and point to its many efficiently informative and individually empowering aspects.

While this is most certainly true, discussions regarding the benefits of electronic media are highly prevalent. Most individuals need little persuasion to agree that this tantalizing technology is generally positive or even some type of utopian catalyst. In contrast, I believe the harmful power of this technology is severely overlooked or denied, leading to a dangerously positive and careless attitude toward its use.'

The Invisible Nuclear Threat Within Non-Organic Food

Beyond GMO-Free: Why We Can't Afford Not To Eat Organic


'Whether you know it or or not, nuclear waste (cobalt-60) has been used for decades to make your food "safer."

There is a profound misunderstanding in the mass market today about the value of certified organic food. The question is not whether the 50% higher or more you pay at the register for an organic product is really worth the added vitamin, mineral and phytonutrient content you receive. 

 Even though organic food does usually have considerably higher nutrient density, it is not always the positive quality of what it contains that makes it so special. Rather, it is what you know the organic food does not contain, or what has not happened to it on its journey to your table, that makes buying organic a no-brainer to the educated consumer.

Documentary Reveals How the Medical and Pharmaceutical Industry Conspire to Maintain a Failing Business Model



'Did you know that while the United States makes up only five percent of the world's population, we consume over 50 percent of all the world's pharmaceutical drugs?

This sobering statistic and much more is revealed in Jeff Hays' documentary film, Doctored.

The primary focus of the film is on the chiropractic profession and its long-standing struggle to be recognized as authentic health professionals. In the 1980's, chiropractors were still by and large viewed as quacks whose treatments were unscientific and potentially dangerous. Worse yet, chiropractors were also derided as 'cultists' at a time when Charles Manson and his cult followers wrought terror in California, and Jim Jones persuaded his followers to drink the Kool-Aid spiked with deadly poison.
