'As someone who is conscious about their health, you probably already know about chlorella. Chlorella is one of the most powerful super foods on the planet. Grown in pristine freshwater ponds on Japanese coral islands, chlorella is a microalgae. It grows extremely fast — multiplying four times every 20 hours, due to a compound called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF).
This extract — unique to chlorella — contains amino acids, vitamins, sugars and nucleic acids, and is believed to be at the core of some of chlorella’s health benefits. Although microscopic, chlorella is a source of complete protein, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Its vibrant green color is from the pigment chlorophyll
In fact, chlorella is one of the highest sources of chlorophyll on Earth.'
'It doesn't have a catchy name or a trendy following to drop a size, but when it comes to your health, it's one of the most effective diets in the world. Proponents of the diet say it can reduce heart disease risk, keep existing cardiac problems in check, reduce blood triglycerides and blood pressure, soothe arthritic joints and even prevent cancer. There's no need to look anywhere but your kitchen.'
'Now, years later rose hip syrup re-appeared on pharmacy shelves. It was re-branded and was not as you would expect in the childrens or vitamin sections of the pharmacy. No, it was in with the highly expensive supplements section lauded as a major step forward in the treatment of arthritis.
The price of a small bottle of rose hip syrup has rocketed, almost a 1,000% increase now it is a ‘cure’ for something that affects so many. Big Pharma strikes again.
This has given birth to a plethora of preparations, many of them tablets stating that they ease the pain of arthritis. Most of these things have no effect at all as there is little of the active ingredients left. Fresh, unadulterated rose hip syrup on the other hand has a good deal going for it.'
'As a busy mom, I am always looking for recipes that my children can make with me. We love banana splits with homemade ice cream, coconut, hot fudge, peanut butter and whipped cream!
These little banana split bites are reminiscent of a yummy banana split, minus the ice cream and whipped cream and are perfect for little hands (and mouths)! Made with organic chocolate, coconut butter and almond or peanut butter they are a wholesome treat that the whole family can enjoy. We had an amazing time making these and an even better time eating them!'
'Ann Cameron, an author of 15 children's books, cured her Stage 4 cancer with carrot juice only. She states, "I believe from personal experience that carrots can cure cancer - and rapidly, without chemotherapy, radiation, or other dietary changes."
'You want to lose weight, so you start trying to cut calories. The most obvious starting place seems to be switching from high-calorie foods with sugar to foods with zero calorie sweeteners, like aspartame. Better known by brand names, such as Equal, NutraSweet, and Spoonful, aspartame seems like a no-brainer. Fewer calories equals weight loss, right?
In fact, study after study has shown just the opposite. Aspartame and all other artificial sweeteners lead to weight gain, not weight loss. So, not only may aspartame be the most toxic additive to foods, instead of helping you lose weight, it actually makes it even tougher to lose it!'
'When we are born, the deoxyribonucleic acid/DNA in our bodies contains the blueprints for who we are and instructions for who we will become. For example, it can tell our eyes to eventually turn from blue at birth to hazel later on, our length to grow from 20 inches to 70 and direct a multitude of other changes over the course of our lives.
Many people have mistakenly believed that the DNA with which we are born is the sole determinant for who we are and will become, but scientists have understood for decades that this genetic determinism is a flawed theory.'
'Many people know and love miso soup. But this week Martha Rose Shulman takes miso beyond soup and explains how it can be used for glazes, dips and dressings. She writes:
This week I pulled out my miso and got to work on dishes other than soups. Mind you, I love miso soup; it’s one of my favorite things about eating in a Japanese restaurant. I used to make it a lot at home, too, especially in my early days of being a vegetarian when I was still obsessed with getting enough protein, because it is a good source. But I also love miso glazes on vegetables and on fish and I’ve used this healthy fermented food in salad dressings, dips and spreads.'
'There are two peer pressure and official guilt trips used on parents who refuse vaccinations for their children. The first is absurd enough to be laughable. It’s the parental tactic of not letting children who weren’t vaccinated around their vaccinated children. Excuse me, if your kids were vaccinated, they’re immune, right?
Could be they’re not. As a matter of fact, children vaccinated with certain vaccines containing live viruses, such as the oral polio vaccine (OPV), have spread the live viruses through viral shedding to infect others with a virus that mutates and becomes worse.
And here’s the second guilt trip, impeding herd immunity by not getting their kids vaccinated. This is getting so bad that vaccine industry bought pompous politicians and other vaccine advocates are promoting legislative actions toward vaccine resisting parents.'
"This tonic is extremely powerful, because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic. It is said that when added to an incurable routine it could cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. This formula is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest diseases."
"...I designed this formula as a fresh herb alternative to Dr. Christopher’s plague formula, to be more alive, a herbal juice tonic, and believe me, you don’t want to be without formulas like this when you or your loved ones get ill; it will save your life. Make up plenty, it can’t go bad because vinegar already is, and will last almost forever..," writes Dr. Shultz
'There are many reasons to no longer trust the USDA organic label, however history gives a good lesson on why you should never confide in this government agency.
The original standards proposed in 1997 by the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) revised rule on National Organic Standards (NOS) was first finalized in 2000. The standards first proposed included proposals to use sewage sludge, irradiation, antibiotics in livestock, and genetically modified organisms.'
'You may be surprised to hear me say that alternative medicine is not wellness. As you read this article, it may seem like a minor point however, it is very important. Without this distinction, it becomes very easy to lose sight of true health and makes it difficult to achieve wellness.
In our society, increasingly overwhelmed by information, we can easily be misinformed and begin to confuse concepts and ideas. Clarifying these two related, yet distinct, concepts will give you a better understanding of real health and help you in your journey to wellness.'
'After Rick Simpson's efforts to introduce his hemp oil to the Canadian Health system were denied, even after proving it had cured many of his town's cancer patients free of charge, he realized the cancer industry doesn't want a cure.
Now, he's in exile in Amsterdam because he refused to stop helping his neighbors free of charge and he refuses to deny the effectiveness of his hemp oil for cancer.
Dr. Robert Atkins asserted there are already hundreds of cures for cancer. His medical license was suspended for curing a woman's breast cancer with ozone therapy.'
'As the battle against superbugs like MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections rages on, researchers have determined that oils derived from plants outperform the antiseptic chlorhexidine and even ethanol in the inhibition of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The researchers - from Australia's Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital - tested a number of extracts derived from plants, including Tea Tree oil, Lemongrass oil, and Eucalyptus oil - against several of the most deadly antibiotic-resistant superbugs. These included Klebsiella pneumoniae, MRSA - methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, VRE - vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus, multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and ESBL-producing Escherichia coli. The testing was carried out in a laboratory.'
'The question this week is, “what causes asthma and what can I do about it? How do I get rid of these terrible symptoms that I have?”
Asthma is a big problem. It affects 8.4 percent of the population or over 25 million Americans (including many children), and it’s increasing every day in America.
Why? For a number of reasons: increasing environmental toxins, increasing pollution, increases in food sensitivities and gut problems, food additives and dyes, increasing use of antibiotics and medications, and increasing consumption of Frankenfoods with altered proteins and other strange ingredients. All these things can trigger asthma.
So, what can we do about it? Functional Medicine is medicine by cause not by symptom. We focus on finding the root cause, while most conventional treatment focuses on just suppressing the symptoms.'
'Drunkorexia: The practice of skipping food in favor of alcohol. For many young women and men, the “pre-gaming” routine of a night on the town may sound familiar. A limited or light lunch fare. Stimulating beverages, such as coffee or tea. Waiting. Phone calls. A text. Finally, another drink. By consuming fewer calories from nutritious food, you’ve saved more room for a fleeting moment of intoxication. It comes in waves, 550 calories each. Later, a lite beer with 150 calories. Maybe skip the cigarette this time. Vodka and Redbull for the pros.'
Now, let’s talk hummus.
'Or actually roasted pumpkin seeds. One of my all time favorite fall snacks. These pepitas are just shelled pumpkin seeds and basically it is the easy way to eat pumpkin seeds. No carving the pumpkin (even though I do love doing this), no straining or drying the seeds, just cut open the bag and roast! So easy, so good!
The seeds get coated in some chili powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and then along with the seeds I roasted up some garlic, cause I mean, why not? It’s fall and I kind of love roasted garlic, plus it works really well with any hummus!'
'The verdict is out on flu shots. Many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than the flu itself.
Every year the pharmaceutical industry, medical experts and the mainstream media work hard to convince us to get vaccinated against the flu.
What we don’t hear, are cases about the adverse reactions or about the toxic chemicals being injected into us.'
'Neurotoxicity occurs when your brain and nervous system are exposed to toxins that alter your neurological function. Neurotoxins destroy the neurons responsible for transmitting information from your brain to the rest of your body.
They also cause premature brain cell death. If you’re suffering from unusual symptoms you and your doctor just can’t make sense of, neurotoxins may be to blame.
Symptoms of Neurotoxicity
Long-term exposure to neurotoxins may result in the following symptoms:'
'Many people never stop to consider how antibiotics affect them and take them believing that the antibiotics will only do them good and there’s no harm or risk. This “harmless” drug however has created a global concern and it’s continued use is being questioned at all levels.
There is an overwhelming amount of evidence of the harm created by antibiotics and how irresponsibly they are handed out by the medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic professions. So why do people continue to accept their use?
Part of the problem lies within society itself and the culture of medicine. Medical doctors have inaccurately been viewed as the upper echelon in the health community. If they consider them to be safe enough to hand out so freely, then they must be okay, is a common sentiment.'
'It is hard to fool the brain by providing it with ‘energyless’ artificial sweeteners. The results of a new study indicate that our pleasure in consuming sweet solutions is driven to a great extent by the amount of energy it provides. The greatest rewards in the brain are attributed to sugars compared to artificial sweeteners which offer only short-term pleasure at a huge health cost.'

'I generally ferment vegetables with one of two goals in mind:
Creating a tasty and healthy dose of probiotics and enzymes without the cost of supplements.
Preserving the harvest in a way that actually enhances the nutritional value of the food while not requiring much in the way of energy resources for this off-grid homesteader.
Sometimes these two goals overlap in the form of sauerkraut, cortido, and dill pickles. But since carrots keep well in a root cellar situation without the need for the small bit of extra processing required in fermenting, I don’t ferment them to preserve them.
But if I put a jar of this crunchy, tangy, garlicy lovelies on the table I can be sure everyone’s eating a couple at today’s meals and that jar will be gone in no time. So I make them for our health and for our tastebuds.'

'Among all supplemental vitamins, vitamin C may be the most controversial. The scientist most responsible for bringing vitamin C’s benefits to the public, Linus Pauling, has been vilified in an attempt to kill the messenger and marginalize the message. But proof of vitamin C efficacy continues despite the medical mafia’s suppressive efforts.
The November 24, 2011 Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine newsletter discussed a study referenced in PubMed that linked high blood levels of vitamin C with lower incidence of heart failure, while lower serum levels of vitamin C were connected to higher death rates.'
'How can you tell if you’ve found your calling? As a doctor who was called to medicine at a young age but then wound up disillusioned by the system, questioning my calling, I’ve asked myself this question a lot.
It’s been a long strange trip- first leaving medicine, then feeling called back, then leaving again only to find my role in healing our broken health care system as a writer, speaker, revolutionary, and teacher of physicians. Along the way, I’ve learned a few things about how to know whether you’re on the right track.'
'Regular KGI supporters will recall that exactly one year ago we were having quite a food fight or, more accurately, a fight for the right to grow food in one's front yard.
The garden belongs to Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp of Drummondville, Quebec. Having recently traveled to Quebec to spend time with them and speak at a conference, I can tell you that it is the most productive and beautiful front yard I have ever visited and that includes the White House kitchen garden!'
'A New York State school has terminated the rights of a child to attend classes solely on the basis of being unvaccinated. This despite the advice of her Physician who stated that it could kill her. A devout Catholic mom has now filed a lawsuit against the State government. Read her story:'
'The average young parent these days will tell you that they don’t feed junk food to their child, but they’ll still drive them through a fast-food joint once a week.
They’ll tell you that they don’t feed their children junk food, but they’ll still give their kiddos macaroni and cheese and corn dogs for dinner.
They assume that junk food is only stuff like candy or sugar-sweetened snacks. Fried chicken, pizza, hamburgers, mac and cheese — none of these are considered junk food anymore.
Because of that, they’ll happily open a can of Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli for their kiddos and be proud of the fact that it’s well-balanced. It’s a serving of vegetables, meats, and grains all wrapped up in an easy package.
And, it’s the world’s #1 selling pre-cooked pasta.'
'A new video from the group calling itself "Organic Spies" is once again rocking the organic food industry. In the video, a woman who identifies herself as a former employee of Whole Foods Market (WFM) testifies that she and other employees were deliberately trained by Whole Foods Market management to lie to store customers about whether the stores carry foods made with genetically engineered ingredients (GMOs).
According to this female whistleblower, whose identity is concealed for her protection, Whole Foods Market employees were deliberately instructed to lie to customers as part of their employee training. The denial of GMOs being sold in Whole Foods stores was an integral part of the training of employees, she explains:'

'Homemade mustard is super easy to make and so much better than store-bought. Add a little whey and a few days on your countertop and you have a probiotic packed condiment, and you know how great that is for you.
This recipe is based on one from Simply Salads, by Season eBook by Kristen Michaelis, which I reviewed in a previous post. It’s a great first recipe to make from the book since it’s also an ingredient in many of the other recipes for dressings included in the book, including the Blue Cheese Dressing, and the Pear Vinaigrette.'
