MSG & Aspartame Are the Two Leading Causes of Central Nervous System Damage in the United States


'Aspartame and MSG stimulate the taste cells in the tongue, causing food flavor to be enhanced, especially in soups, snacks, sauces, gravies, low-fat processed foods, and now aspartame is found in 95 percent of breath mints and chewing gum, even when they’re not “sugar free.” 

If you regularly experience any or all of the following, it’s about time to question the amount of “excitotoxins” that are swimming through your heart and brain. Do you suffer from migraine headaches, inflammation, unwarranted weight gain, rashes and “crawling skin?” It may all be spurred by genetically modified flavor enhancers.'


The disaster of manufactured consent in the Matrix

'This article may seem to be about abstract theory, but it isn’t. It’s about how populations are viewed by psychological-operations specialists.

More importantly, it’s about how people are led to accept substitutes for their own highest ideals. The substitutes look like the real thing, but they’re actually very well drawn cartoons.

The most successful long-terms psyops are aimed at getting people to accept “good things, wonderful things.” Except, it turns out that these things magically evaporate and leave populations in the lurch.'

'One of the most intimate things you can do with your body is eat, and most of us do it several times a day. So, why do we think that we can shove just about anything made by anyone out of who knows what down our gullets and not expect to get back exactly what we put in?'


Cranberry Superfood Spread

'Cranberries are underrated. To me, these little red berries are a superfood when in their simple, whole, and natural form.

The way they are processed in today’s modern food does not do them justice. You can get cranberry juice off the shelf at the store, that’s more-times-than-not been pasteurized (essentially making a completely denatured sugar water devoid of any nutritional value) or a can of cranberry-like jelly you see around Thanksgiving.

I firmly believe in buying cranberries in their natural berry form and making what I need from them myself. This way I can control how the cranberries are prepared, protecting the amazing benefits, nutrients, and antioxidants of such a lovely little fruit. Let’s dive into the cranberry bogs and learn more!'


Healthy Baby Kidnapped in Minnesota, Force-Fed Drugs by Medical Community and Court System

ED Note: Updates on this story available here

'A precious baby boy from Minnesota became the latest victim of state-sponsored medical terrorism recently after Child Protective Services (CPS) forcibly abducted the otherwise healthy child from his birth mother and her family right after his birth. 


Rico Martinez Nagel, born December 19, 2012, has had to live most of his life thus far in a hospital on feeding tubes and dangerous drugs, away from his family, thanks to an over-zealous cohort of medical, state, and legal powers apparently working on behalf of the pharmaceutical cartel to boost its own interests.'

'Heavy metals can do significant damage to the body. Historically, they’ve been used as “an instrument of murder” (in the case of arsenic) and instruments of war. But most people who are exposed to heavy metals in today’s times are through their food, water, vaccines, or the air around them. The good news is that there are natural ways to chelate heavy metals from your body.'


Chia Seeds - Health Food or Hype?

'Once a staple of the Aztec diet, chia seeds fell out of favor when the Spanish conquistadors took over the “New World.” Since then, chia seeds have seemingly made a comeback.

First, they surfaced in the form of the bizarre “Chia Pet,” but now they’re being hailed as a formidable health food. Interesting progression, isn’t it?

These days, just about every “health foodie” out there has taken a liking to these seeds, making them a staple in their own diet.

But in the end, are they really worth all of the hype? Let’s take a look.'


Another Reason To Eat Apples Daily: They Help Increase Muscle And Prevent Obesity and Diabetes

'We know that eating an apple a day without removing the peel definitely keeps disease at bay. The key is to first grow your own apples since both conventional and organic apples found in grocery retailers are subject to high levels of pesticides and antibiotics. If you can't grow your own, find a local grower in your community who is vigilant about organic farming practices. Second, eat a minimum of two apples per day and never remove the peel.'

Unvaccinated Children Suffer Fewer Infectious Diseases: Study

'This Big Pharma-funded study stated a conclusion absolving vaccinations of causing harm to children. But their conclusion doesn’t match their results! Worse, though, is that close inspection shows that the study was utterly inadequate. That they showed vaccinated children have more infectious diseases, though, is rather humorous.'

'Rosemary is a perennial herb containing 19 chemicals with antibacterial action and a number of other medicinal uses. The plant is well known for improving memory. Scientists have now unlocked the mechanism behind rosemary's ability to reduce blood sugar spikes and reduce body weight.

Rosemary has a very old reputation for improving memory and has been used as a symbol for remembrance during weddings, war commemorations and funerals in Europe and Australia.

It contains a number of potentially biologically active compounds, including antioxidants carnosic acid and rosmarinic acid. Rosemary antioxidants levels are closely related to soil moisture content.'


New Study: Vaporized Marijuana is a Safe and Effective Pain Treatment

'When we talk about the medicinal benefits of marijuana, those who disapprove of its use tend to roll their eyes. But the fact is, this powerful plant has numerous potential applications in healthcare and pain management in particular. A new study has once again demonstrated that the vilified plant can safely and effectively treat general pain along with the painful symptoms of neuropathy.

Neuropathy is damage to the nervous system – particularly the peripheral nervous system (not including the brain and spinal cord). It is characterized by pain and numbness especially in the hands and feet, and is often the result of diabetes. Neuropathy can also be caused by injuries, toxic exposure, infections, and more.'


Hemp: Uses and Cures (Ghee and Herbal Extract Recipes Included!)

'Hemp, Cannabis sativa, is one of the world’s oldest sources of food and medicine, with a history that dates back ten thousand years. It relieves glaucoma, epilepsy, migraines, insomnia, asthma, the nausea associated with AIDS and chemotherapy, and a host of other conditions. It was once a staple in every American medicine cabinet, but because hemp is the plant from which marijuana is derived, it has been made unavailable to consumers until recently. Now products made from imported hemp-seed are sold by stores and mail-order companies across the United States to satisfy a growing demand.'


9 Ways to Protect Yourself From Superbug Bacteria

'But, wait.

Before you become hysterical and spend your life savings on Lysol and antibacterial products, there are some things you should know about bacteria…

Resistant bacteria are occurring due to the following:

  • Overuse of antibacterial substances in the hospital environment to “eliminate” bacteria
  • Over use of antibiotics for illness in humans
  • Over use of antibiotics in farming environments on animals and birds
When these substances are over-used, the result is that ALL bacteria are wiped out. But eliminating the good bacteria in our bodies and in our environment has dire consequences. If we don’t have the friendly bacteria that normally occur in our intestinal tracts, and that take up residence in our entire bodies…and which also occur in our farming environments where our food is grown, we become vulnerable to disease and illness.'


Protecting Yourself From Electromagnetic Fields – Earthing and Detoxifying

'In order to stay healthy we also have to be connected to the healing energy of the Earth, we just have to BE on the Earth! Humans have been doing it for millions of years, by walking, sleeping and practically being mostly on the ground, not in a glass building with 30 stories, surrounded by wires and cell phones.

So, what is earthing? Multiple scientific studies involving biophysicists, electrophysiologists, medical doctors, and exercise physiologists have produced fascinating evidence demonstrating that direct connection to the Earth’s ground energy has a powerful and positive influence on the body. Plastic or rubber soles insulate people from the natural electrical surface charge of the Earth known in the electrical world simply as “ground.”'


Eight Ways Corporations are Poisoning Our Food, Water and the Earth

'While we may be under the impression that our system of government is here to protect us, corporations—and the politicians getting paychecks from them—do a fair job of making that difficult.

Here are 8 ways corporations are poisoning our food supply, humans, and mother earth.'

 'I’m one for freebies—always have been and always will be (until now). Why the sudden change? At my local grocery store, I was given a free sample of Canada Dry Ten Ginger Ale, took it home, opened it and took a huge swallow (perhaps five ounces).
Here’s what happened next:

Incredible nausea. A slow urge developing into a need to throw up. Sat on the toilet in waiting. Incredible gas. This went on for about an hour.'


This Root Prevents Cancer, Lowers Blood Pressure, Boosts Your Brain And Sex Life

'A single serving of beets can do more for your health than most foods in the produce isle. Not only can they boost your energy and lower your blood pressure, but eating beets in the long-term can help you fight cancer, reduce arthritic pain, boost your brain as well as help you lose weight. 

With its sweet, earthy taste and ruby-red interior, beets are a favourite of foodies, but there's far more than that to this powerfood.

Beets are a unique source of phytonutrients called betalains. Betanin and vulgaxanthin are the two best-studied betalains from beets, and both have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.'

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)

'Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an organic sulfur-containing compound that occurs naturally in fruits, vegetables, grains, animals, and even humans. MSM has earned a lot of attention for its use as a nutritional supplement. This is due to MSM’s reputation as a potent antioxidant booster that is believed to resist inflammation and oxidative damage, especially after exercise and strenuous activities.'


Big Pharma Robs Compound From Grapes, Makes Patented Drug They Claim Will Help People Live to 150 Years

'Big money just loves to prostitute nature. The grape polyphenol powerhouse resveratrol, has been erroneously credited to the wine industry for years to further promote red wines around the world as healthy and even anti-aging beverages. 

However, the consumption of wine is not necessary to benefit from resveratrol--all you need are grapes. Big Pharma is now taking a page out of the alcohol industry's marketing book of deception and promoting synthetic versions of resveratrol through topical and oral patented drugs they claim will help combat aging and allow people to live to 150 years.'


What Happens to Our Qi When We Eat Processed Foods?

'What happens to our Qi if we eat a lot of processed foods?  Processed foods usually includes more preservatives, chemicals, fats, fillers, and sugars than other foods.  As a result, our body has to spend a lot of its energy and effort, not only to digest the food, but to break it down and get rid of what the body doesn’t need.

 Most of this additional work is done in the liver and the liver can’t process all of it. The result is Qi getting stuck and stagnant in the liver.  In Chinese Medicine this is known as  “Liver Qi Stagnation”.  Liver Qi Stagnation is a prolific problem in the United States and is often the root cause of many health problems, such as:'


He Had Bypass Surgery, But Died from the Antidepressant

'Larry was a good guy, the eldest of six. He was relaxed, funny, and easy-going, with a wife whom he knew since they were teenagers. He had 4 children and 7 grandchildren who adored him. Following Larry’s triple bypass, as is common following big operations, he started to feel a little down. He was prescribed an antidepressant Lexapro (Lundbeck’s poison and the same drug Shane was prescribed). He took Lexapro as prescribed for about a week. He told his son that his head felt like it was exploding, that it wasn’t in sync with the rest of him and that he was ‘all over the place’.


How to get more sleep, lose weight and gain health

Avocado and chickpea salad sandwiches

Jaymi's Notes:

'I live where avocado is a staple food. There is a reason why "California style" means "add some avocado, thanks." Both my dad and aunt have avocado trees in their back yards, and my dad's is a variety that will produce fruit late in the fall and early winter for avocados practically year-round. So I'm always looking for new things to do with the trusty old avocado.

There are two reasons I love this recipe. First, it is because the chickpeas add bulk without an overpowering flavor, which means for those readers living in locations where an avocado is $4, one avocado goes a loooooong way. This recipe makes enough for several sandwiches.'


The Disgusting Migraine Scandal

Antibiotics Breed Apocalyptic Diseases

'So now Big Pharma and Big Medicine are stealing our access to natural medicines, as the same old clearly faulty paradigm of suppressing symptoms through powerful and dangerous treatments continues. We’re now entering an apocalyptic world of diseases far more virulent than their ancestors, both in terms of severity of disease and infection aggression. But we’re left with fewer resources, as natural products are being systematically taken from us. That leaves us solely at the mercy of rapacious Big Pharma and Big Medicine’s greedy grasp.

The parade of apocalyptic diseases is on the march. Big Pharma’s pipeline of treatments is fading, other than through the theft of nature, which had always been freely available to us, but is now being withheld through tricks of semantics. If a plant provides a healthy benefit, then it’s redefined as a drug and banished … but then handed over to Big Pharma for profiteering. And the benefits of Big Pharma’s products tend to be illusory, full of life-destroying adverse effects, while we’re unable to access safe and health-producing natural products.'


How to be Independent of the Medical Industrial Complex

'If there was ever a time to learn about the Natural Allopathic Medicine protocol and how to use iodine, bicarbonate, selenium and magnesium chloride, as well as its other components of the protocol, that time is now. The walls of Modern Medicine are falling, and if people were smart they would run out from under the falling stones and learn how to be independent of the medical industrial complex.

A “nightmare” bacteria that is resistant to powerful antibiotics and kills half of those it infects has surfaced in nearly 200 U.S. hospitals and nursing homes, federal health officials reported Tuesday.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 4 percent of U.S. hospitals and 18 percent of nursing homes had treated at least one patient with the bacteria, called Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), within the first six months of 2012.'


225,000 US patients die in doctors’ hands: silence of the lambs

'By the most conservative estimate, researched and published by mainstream medical sources, the US medical system kills 225,000 people each year.
That’s 2.25 MILLION deaths per decade.

You’d think such a mind-boggling fact would rate a relentless series of page-one stories in the press, along with top-story status on the network evening news. But no. It’s wall-to-wall silence.'

Fertility Destroying Chemical Added To Tap, Milk, Salt

'Fluoride is promoted above good nutrition as a 'therapeutic' chemical necessary to prevent cavities, but it lowers IQ, calcifies the pineal gland and harms fertility, among a wide range of other adverse health effects.

There is no question remaining that fluoride lowers IQ, at least as far as high-quality epidemiological research published in peer-reviewed journals has shown.'


Promises, Promises – False Concessions and the Carrot to Nowhere

'OK, this one hit me upside the head the minute I saw it. Total lip service. I don’t believe the media and I don’t believe Big Corp.

Whole Foods just announced they’re going to require GMO labeling by 2018. Whoopee. Sorry, but that’s a bogus media ploy to get customers’ trust again after their horrendous sell out to big Agra over the GMO fight, typified by the subsequent illegally crushed proposition for labeling GMOs in California. Where was Whole Foods then? You really think this turn around is anything more than propaganda? They said last time around something to effect of  “We’re just a supermarket” in defense of their lack of backbone.  Don’t forget that. That’s the bottom line.

Worse than that. This kind of thing is designed to pacify and mislead food activists and others trying to bring truth and awareness to this sick world.'


 Whole Foods caught in GMO marketing deception, false advertising ...
 'The Whole Foods investor relations executive, Libba Letton, says that GMOs are found everywhere, but only when pressed on the issue in front of a camera. Is that seriously her excuse for why Whole Foods sells GMOs, too? Because everyone else does? Really?

This argument is, once again, based on deception because all the other grocery stores across the country don't slap claims on the sides of their stores that say, "NOTHING ARTIFICIAL, EVER." Only Whole Foods makes such a bold claim on the side of its building. And the claim is not merely false, it is a claim made for the purpose of deceiving customers into purchasing something that isn't what they thought it was.

The claim is also knowingly untrue'.

How I Raised My Body Temperature by a Full Degree in Less Than a Week

'My body temperature, which had been as low as in the 96′s, was creeping back up to normal. I even had a few days of reaching beyond the 98.6 degrees I was aiming for. But, it was a little inconsistent, and many days I was more in the low 98s. After the stress of the wedding and the big move across the pacific, I was consistently not reaching a high enough body temperature, and noticing more of my old hypothyroid symptoms like cold hands and feet, sluggishness, and hair thinning.'


Why Cooking with a Microwave Destroys Cancer-Fighting Nutrients in Food and Promotes Nutritional Deficiencies

'Microwaves absolutely decimate the nutritional value of your food, destroying the very vitamins and phytonutrients that prevent disease and support good health. Previous studies have shown that as much as 98% of the cancer-fighting nutrients in broccoli, for example, are destroyed by microwaving.

To understand why, you have to understand the nature of vitamins and phytonutrients (plant-based nutrients). These are very delicate molecules which are fragile. They are easily destroyed by heat, which is why raw plant foods contain more plant nutrients than cooked foods. Carotenoids, antioxidants and other molecules like DIM (in broccoli) or anthocyanins (in purple corn) are all easily destroyed by microwave energy.'


Non-Stick Cookware Continues to Prove Its Toxicity

'More evidence has emerged regarding the dangers of Perflurooctanoic Acid (PFOA), which is used in the production of non-stick cookware and stain-resistant snack food packaging. PFOA is currently found in the bloodstream of 95 percent of American men, women, and children.

Now, a study has shown a correlation between PFOA and low birth weight in newborns. One of the head researchers in the independent study, Dr. Lynn Goldman, said that, “It appears that there is a relation between a higher level of exposure and lower birth weight, as well as the circumference of the head.”

Another recent study showed that PFOA caused an overreaction to allergens in mice.

PFOA has already been implicated in increased instances of cancer in the pancreas, liver, testicles, and mammary glands, as well as miscarriages, thyroid problems, weakened immune systems, and low organ weights.'

Maine Town Declares Food Sovereignty


'Sedgwick, Maine has done what no other town in the United States has done. The town unanimously passed an ordinance giving its citizens the right “to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing.” This includes raw milk, locally slaughtered meats, and just about anything else you can imagine. It’s also a decided bucking of state and federal laws.'
