The food industry is waging war on your cells with these 10 toxic ingredients
'Preservatives and synthetic food agents found in foods inhibit oxygen and delay the development of fungus and mold, creating a longer shelf-life for products. But after being consumed, these toxins deprive human cells of oxygen and rob them of nutrients, thus leading to cell mutation and the perfect breeding ground for cancer.
Just like humans, cells need oxygen to survive and thrive. "Fungus fighting" preservatives and man-made food agents choke out your body's nutrients at the DNA level by depriving mitochondrial cells of oxygen, sometimes completely shutting them down. And if the body does not have enough essential nutrients, it becomes more susceptible to disease.'
'Three years ago, Dr. Keith Smith, co-founder and managing partner of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, took an initiative that would only be considered radical in the health care industry: He posted online a list of prices for 112 common surgical procedures.
The 51-year-old Smith, a self-described libertarian, and his business partner, Dr. Steve Lantier, founded the Surgery Center 15 years ago, after they became disillusioned with the way patients were treated at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the two men worked as anesthesiologists. In 1997, Smith and Lantier bought the shell of a former surgical center with the aim of creating a for-profit facility that could deliver first-rate care at a fraction of what traditional hospitals charge.'
'The major cause of exploding U.S. heath care costs is the third-party payer system, a text-book concept in which A buys goods or services from B that are paid for by C.
Because private insurance companies or the government generally pick up most of the tab for medical services, patients don't have the normal incentive to seek out value.
The Surgery Center's consumer-driven model could become increasingly common as Americans look for alternatives to the traditional health care market - an unintended consequence of Obamacare. Patients may have no choice but to look outside the traditional health care industry in the face of higher costs and reduced access to doctors and hospitals.'
'The pineal gland is the center for receiving the rays of sunlight, which once received are shot in different directions of the body. Also, it is the receiver of crown energy, which holds an incredible amount of information about your past, who you are as a soul, your future, your evolution – and the entire history of the universe. Everything is stored within your higher self in the universal consciousness.
It would be impossible to receive all of this information at all once, so the pineal gland functions like a coordination radio tower, receiving the strongest rays coming through from all light sources – higher self light, sunlight, moon light and star light – and has the ability to decode the information which is stored within these light frequencies.'
By Dr. Swami Shankardev Saraswati
'When I was a young medical doctor, I would often roster myself to work in the ER over Christmas, allowing colleagues who celebrated the holiday to be with their families. We were prepared for a very busy time in the emergency room, and one of the most common symptoms we treated was depression, with its underlying sense of alienation and loneliness. People who have lost loved ones or who are financially impoverished suffer tremendously during the holiday season. For me, it was a time when I could test just how stable the light of yoga was in my heart.'

'It’s taken as an article of faith that vaccinations have improved our lifespan. Most of us take our children to the doctors for their injections without question. Most think of themselves as bad parents if they don’t. It’s simply one of those things that aren’t questioned, as if it’s obvious. It’s gone so far now that parents have been threatened with prison and their children are coerced into vaccinations.
'What if 90% of the peer-reviewed clinical research, the holy grail of the conventional medical system, is exaggerated, or worse, completely false?
A seismic shift is occurring in the field of evidence-based medicine that a rare few are aware of, but which will (and likely already does) affect everyone, as the standard of medical care today largely follows from this model.
The very life's blood of 'evidence-based' medicine -- peer-reviewed and published clinical research results – which legitimizes the entire infrastructure and superstructure upon which conventional medical knowledge and practice is erected, has been revealed as mostly and patently false.'

'Long time practitioners in the natural health industry ask themselves this question on a daily basis. Why do people follow medical authorities who prescribe toxic vaccinations, medications and treatments which only serve as a detriment to human health? The answer lies in a recent report in PLOS Biology.
What we are experiencing today is essentially medical tyranny where government, pharmaceutical conglomerates and medical colleges conspire to produce blind followers of a system that produces more health risks than benefits to any given population.
Professors Alex Haslam and Stephen Reicher explain how followers of such methodologies do so not just through obedience, but enthusiasm too -- challenging the long-held belief that human beings are 'programmed' for conformity.'
'We know you love yoga—for your girlfriend. Her weekly practice makes her bendy in bed, more chill overall and therefore more sexy even when she's lounging around. Well, we've got news for you. Yoga isn't a ladies-only thing like going to the bathroom in packs or opening store credit cards only to get 5 percent off the purchase. In fact, taking one yoga class per week or doing a couple of pre-workout poses can increase endurance, build strength, prevent injuries, and may even stave off heart disease.
How? "Men often suffer from tightness particularly in the hips, hamstrings, and shoulders that can lead to injury or weakness," says Baron Baptiste, creator of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga and former assistant coach with the Philadelphia Eagles.'
'If there were some type of national stomachache-o-meter, we would be able to hear its gears straining as it revs into peak mode right about now -- where it would stay until the new year when indulgent consumption ends and we all make a stab at living Spartanly for a while. But until then, there is too much pie and chocolate and cookies and cocktails that require our attention. Tough luck, stomach.
So if your middle begins to complain of your decadence and you prefer to skip the commercial tonics and tinctures and their questionable ingredients (like the red 22, red 28, saccharin, sucralose and the mysteriously-labeled ingredient of “flavor” in Petpo-Bismol) then you can reach for a natural remedy to calm the grumpy gut. These five are tried and true, and have been helping soothe sad stomachs for centuries, if not millennia.'

The Health Benefits of Saying Thanks
An "attitude of gratitude" can improve physical and emotional health. Incorporate more thankfulness into your life not just during holidays, but every day.
'We all know exercising and eating a healthy diet are good for our bodies, but how many people realize practicing an attitude of gratitude can improve our health as well?
There’s no doubt that mind and body are connected, and this link is especially apparent when it comes to gratitude. “Research suggests that individuals who are grateful in their daily lives actually report fewer stress-related health symptoms, including headaches, gastrointestinal (stomach) issues, chest pain, muscle aches, and appetite problems,” says Sheela Raja, PhD, an assistant professor and clinical psychologist in the Colleges of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago'.

Only Buy Genuine, Farm Fresh, Organic, Free Range Eggs
By Dr. Mercola
'A massive scale egg producer in Pennsylvania has made the news for inhumane treatment of chickens and unsanitary conditions.
Kreider Farms, which houses seven million hens, appears to be the next sickening example of what allegedly happens behind the scenes at CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations).
The Humane Society recently released an undercover video that exposes the horrific conditions endured by the birds in this operation.
This includes filthy living conditions, overcrowding with up to 11 birds per cage, dead birds apparently left untended, and a severe fly infestation capable of spreading salmonella across the chicken population.
The worker capturing the video reports mummified corpses were lying on the ground under other hens that were laying eggs.'

'Those who are involved in sustainable ag understand that everything is connected. There can be no healthy people without healthy food or healthy food without healthy soil or healthy soil without healthy micro-organisms or healthy micro-organisms without healthy habitats or healthy habitats without healthy animals and insects and fish and birds. It is a great whole and we – all species on earth – are in this together. The sustainable ag community understands viscerally that we must protect all the pieces because they all fit together as a whole that we belong to and need. All of is is, in a real sense, us.'
'But if the sustainable ag community seeks to see the whole, it needs to include what is happening to itself, not just to the crops, and what is happening to animals in other countries, for the same has been planned for here.
What is happening to itself is that its own children are being genetically engineered by the new vaccines. They are call DNA-vaccines because their purpose is to alter – or engineer – the DNA. And they employ patented synthetic GMOs, just as in agriculture, to do this, and shoot these GMOs into children with gene guns, just as the biotech industry uses gene guns to shoot GMOs into seeds.'
'Flu vaccines are perhaps one of the most promoted, yet highly ineffective measures of preventative (or so claimed) mainstream medicine. There are so many simple and reliable methods to prevent the flu virus from replicating all while using herbs and tonics to boost our immune system and create the ultimate defense barrier against influenza.
recently reported in my article "If You Would Like To Depress Your Immune System, Get This Year's Flu Shot" how vaccines serve a nice dose of carcinogenic, immunotoxic, neurotoxic, and sterility agents. Further reading on the quackery of the entire vaccine industry can be found can be found in an earlier report "The Entire Vaccine Industry Is Being Exposed For Unproven Assumptions And Misrepresentations of Data."'
'At this late date, there are still people who don’t see the consequences of Obamacare. They cling to the notion that it’s simply a wonderful system that will allow more people to get vital medical care. That’s all they see or want to see.
They agree that medical treatment has an alarming toxic track record. But they don’t want to admit that Obamacare will spread that toxicity even further.'

'As if coconut oil didn’t offer enough health benefits, at the recent Wise Traditions Conference I learned another reason to include plenty of coconut products in your diet. According to Dr. Bruce Fife, leading coconut expert, coconut oil can prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Turns out this isn’t super recent news, but I, for one, had never encountered it before. As someone with a family history of dementia (possibly caused by Alzheimer’s disease), I have to say that I am enormously excited about this new development.
Coconut Oil May Also Reverse Already Present Alzheimer’s Disease'
'In conventional medicine autoimmune disease is a chronic life-long health condition that is considered to be incurable. This is what we are led to believe. However, a new discovery in the field of autoimmunity gives not only hope but opens new treatment opportunities.
During last decades different models such as molecular mimicry, “bystander effect” and viral persistence were proposed as possible mechanisms that initiate the overreaction of the immune system and lead to an autoimmune disease.'
'With the holiday season right around the corner, there is no better time than the present to fortify our diet and cement healthy eating.
Ironically, while healthy eating is our birthright, for many of us it seems like taking the plunge into eating a whole foods-based diet is the equivalent to traveling to some distant land. But it doesn't have to be such a scary or foreign experience.
In my work as a functional medicine doctor, my priority is to guide each patient through a safe, simple, realistic, and pleasurable transition into healthy eating.
Because whole foods-based diets remove all the sugary, fatty, chemical-laden, artificial stuff from the diet, they sometimes get called a detox or a cleanse. '
'Marriam-Webster’s definition of addiction is: “compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly: persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful.”
Just as drugs, cigarettes and alcohol, money, sex, shopping or any other activity can be habit-forming and lead to addiction. Dr. Leon F. Seltzer, a clinical psychologist and author of Paradoxical Strategies in Psychotherapy, elaborates in a recent blog in Psychology Today:'
'For many of us, sweet potatoes are a once-a-year decadent marshmallow-laden addition to an already overwhelming Thanksgiving menu. But there is no need to feel guilty about eating these hearty and healthy root vegetables and no need to limit them to the holidays. They can be an everyday treat and healthy upgrade to regular potatoes. And adding maple syrup can boost nutrition and flavor.'
'Most air fresheners interfere with your ability to smell by coating your nasal passages with an oil film, or by releasing a nerve deadening agent. Known toxic chemicals found in an air freshener: Formaldehyde: Highly toxic, known carcinogen. Phenol: When phenol touches your skin it can cause it to swell, burn, peel, and break out in hives. Can cause cold sweats,convulsions, circulatory collapse, coma and even death.'
'Acupressure is a healing art that involves applying pressure to specific points on your body. The idea is to manually stimulate blood flow to your largest nerves, which promotes healthy nerve function, which in turn, promotes optimal cellular function, as all cellular activity is ultimately governed by your nervous system.
So much like you can maintain healthy muscles through regular exercise, you can maintain healthy nerves through regular acupressure.'
'Modern society has created a sad state for our over-processed livers. Anytime we overeat or eat processed or fried foods, and, anytime we are exposed to environmental pollutants or stress, the liver becomes overworked and overloaded. When the liver is taxed, it cant process toxins and fat in an efficient way. There are many foods that can help cleanse the liver naturally by stimulating the natural ability to clean toxic waste from the body.'
'There are some very sane oncologists, but they are rare birds. Dr. Simone M.Ms., M.D., one of the sanest, speaks a volume of truth in the following essay:
DO WE ALWAYS NEED TO TELL PATIENTS THE TRUTH?
In my experience, cancer patients who receive treatment know their situation. Even very young people know. A six-year-old boy who I was treating for leukemia at the National Cancer Institute asked me what it was like in heaven. A national survey found that 96% of Americans wanted to be told if they had cancer and 85% wanted to know how long they would live if their [type of] cancer usually led to death in less than a year.'
'Food has lost its story. Stripped of context, meaning, and reduced to its molecular composition, ancient recipes for health and joy long to be recovered.
Recipes are ancient prescriptions for health, loved and labored into being by our ancestors. Responding to necessity and a primordial desire to experience pleasure and satiety while doing so, those who came before us perfected their edible relationship to their land and their culture. The result: codified combinations of nutrients, tastes, smells, modes of preparation and sourcing, which we know as recipes, and without which we would not be here, alive today reflecting on the subject.
If food, as Hippocrates said, is medicine, knowing and applying the proper dose and combinations – the recipe – will make the difference between a food, a dish, being healing or harmful. In this sense, recipes are prescriptions. In fact, the first literal use of the word 'recipe' was in the 1580's when for the French it meant (and still means) medical prescriptions. Handed down initially through oral tradition, recipes contain information no less fundamental to our well-being and survival, than the DNA within our genome.'
'“Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise”
Benjamin Franklin was right. You need sleep. Sleep is when your body detoxifies and heals itself.
We've all heard that most people need 6-8 hours of sleep per night, but you may need much more, like 9-10. If you’re getting less than 7 hours, you may be sleep deprived. Not getting enough sleep night after night leads to a “sleep deficit” that keeps growing. And with that sleep deficit comes a gradual degradation of your health. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain, a weak immune system, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
I know a few night owls who always seem to be sick with something. They catch everything that goes around. Sound familiar?'
FDA Approved Biomedical Genocide is Revealed
'Aspartame complaints represent 80-85% of food complaints registered with the FDA. So-called "diet" products containing the chemical sweetener aspartame can have multiple neurotoxic, metabolic, allergenic, fetal and carcinogenic effects.
Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, many people still see aspartame as a safe diet aid – even though it has been demonstrated that the use of this product actually causes people to consume more food.
Aspartame is not your friend. In 1991, the National Institutes of Health listed 167 symptoms and reasons to avoid the use of aspartame, but today it remains a multi-million dollar business. Known to erode intelligence and affect short-term memory, the components of this toxic sweetener may lead to a wide variety of ailments including:
Diseases like lymphoma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue
Emotional disorders like depression and anxiety attacks
Hearing Loss and ringing in the ears
Blindness, blurred vision and other eye problems
'As we continue in the Deceptions in The Food Industry series, today we’re talking about salt. Has your doctor advised you to lower your salt intake for your health? If so, there are a few things you ought to know about processed foods in the stores, many of which claim to be healthier because the label reads “low-sodium” or “no salt added”.
Salt is not what you think it is'

Physical and health benefits of meditation
'As meditation has become more well-known in the West, scientists have begun to quantify its physical benefits in hundreds of studies.
Significant benefits have been found for many health conditions, including heart disease, cholesterol, high blood pressure, insomnia, chronic pain, cancer, and immunity. Because meditation is a low-cost intervention with no side-effects, it shows promise for relief of a wide range of societal and health problems.'
'Scientific studies have suggested that a mind that is present and in the moment indicates well-being, whereas shifting our energy to the past or future can lead to unhappiness. Now, a preliminary UCSF study shows a link between mind wandering and aging, by looking at a biological measure of longevity within our DNA.'
In the study, telomere length, an emerging biomarker for cellular and general bodily aging, was assessed in association with the tendency to be present in the moment versus the tendency to mind wander, in research on 239 healthy, midlife women ranging in age from 50 to 65 years.
Being present in the moment was defined as an inclination to be focused on current tasks, while mind wandering was defined as the inclination to have thoughts about things other than the present or being elsewhere.'
'Many years ago, when I was writing my thesis, I realized that there is a major flaw in the entire concept of taking vitamins to improve one's health. I called it the missing link in vitamin therapy, and the essential idea is that real foods contain a host of nutrients that vitamin pills do not.
And we need these other nutrients — often more than the vitamin itself — for healing, prevention and cellular function. In real food, vitamins exist within a complex of interwove, interactive and interdependent nutrients. Vitamins and multivitamins, on the other hand, do not contain this complex and therefore do not act as natural nutrition inside the body.'

'Aging Americans are experiencing cognitive decline in numbers never before seen. Alzheimer’s disease has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Consider these troubling statistics from the Alzheimer’s Association1:
5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. It’s estimated that up to 16 million will have the disease by 2050.
One in eight Americans age 65 and over has Alzheimer’s. Every 68 seconds, another American develops Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the 5th leading cause of death for those aged 65 and older.
Alzheimer’s deaths increased by 66 percent between 2000 and 2008.
One in seven of the estimated 800,000 people with Alzheimer’s lives alone, left to fend for himself/herself.
If you develop Alzheimer’s disease, it’s a far greater problem than just memory loss — it can kill you. And it makes every other medical problem much more difficult to treat. Although many will claim Alzheimer’s is not preventable, there ARE measures you can take that will lower your odds of developing age-related cognitive decline or, worst case scenario, full on dementia.'
'It has been long known that cranberry juice can offer a variety of health benefits (when ingesting in the right form). Some of the most recent research involving cranberry juice examines how the juice is even effective at treating bladder infections. While most people with a bladder infection swiftly race to the doctor for antibiotic treatment, the infection causing bacteria are becoming resistant to our medicines, and something needs to be done. That something may be as simple as drinking cranberry juice.'

'In 2010, the United Nations published a blueprint in which the global elite announced their intentions for phasing out global warming as means of achieving global governance in favor of the overpopulation theme as a means to destroy, impoverish and enslave the middle classes across the nations of this planet. The ultimate globalist goal is dramatic population reduction.
The previously leaked United Nations planning paper makes it clear that the world body is in the process of adopting a new public relations strategy in which they will propagandize the public into accepting the fact that an overcrowded planet leads to environmental devastation and financial ruin. Subsequently, the sheeple will unquestionably accept the population reduction philosophy as it is manifesting in the end of life treatment exclusions being set forth by the National Health Service in Britain, which also serves as the model for the American version of Obamacare.'
