Besides such obvious areas as weight loss and putting down cigarettes, there are a number of other resolutions many of us could make to improve our health. Here are ten New Year’s resolutions which are almost certain to lead to a healthier 2015 and beyond:'

1 In 2 Children Will Have Autism by 2025, Warns Senior MIT Scientist

'The overuse of Monsanto's Roundup herbicide on our food is causing glyphosate toxicity and it is now being considered as the single most important factor in development of autism and other chronic disease. At a recent panel discussion about GMOs, a senior scientist has stated that one in two children will be autistic by 2025. 

Glyphosate does induce disease and is a "textbook example of exogenous semiotic entropy." Glyphosate inhibits detoxification of xenobiotics and interferes with cytochrome P450 enzymes, which enhances the damaging effects of other chemical residues and toxins, and very slowly damages cellular systems in the body through inflammation. Residues of glyphosate are found in sugar, corn, soy, and wheat, some of the main components of the Western diet.'

Common Health Complaints & the Corresponding Essential Oil to Ease the Symptoms

'Your sense of smell is your most primal sense and exerts surprising influence over your thoughts, emotions, moods, memories, and behaviors. Scents are experienced long before words.
This is why it’s nearly impossible to describe them with language. Olfaction is different from your other senses, processed through different pathways in your brain.

For other sensations such as sounds and visual images, sensory input is delivered straight to your thalamus, which you can think of as “the big switchboard” in your head. From there, data goes out to your primary sensory cortices.
But smells are different. Before reaching your thalamus, they first wind their way through other regions of your brain, including areas controlling memory and emotion. So with scents, you have all this extra processing even before you have conscious awareness of the scent.'

'Lung infections have been at all-time highs in the last six months and the various and extended symptoms have many wondering why recovery time is so lengthy. Coughs are one of the most common complaints seen by doctors and exact causes are only found for less than 50 percent of conditions. 

Coughs are mainly a protective reflex to remove foreign bodies, mucus or irritants and a primary respiratory reflex for inflammation. Knowing which type of cough is ailing you is the first step in addressing a solution. Here are 8 types of coughs, their symptoms and how to treat them.

Boycott, ban, criminalize Roundup

'Glyphosate is the primary active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup.

There is no official figure for the amount of glyphosate used every year in the world. One estimate? 650,000 tonnes, which works out to a staggering 1.3 billion pounds.

Manufactured by Monsanto and a number of other companies, glyphosate use spiked after the introduction of Monsanto’s GMO Roundup Ready food crops in the 1990s.

Here is a sprinkle of information about glyphosate. To say it’s sobering is a vast understatement. Keep in mind that the medical cartel, which would call a mother’s touch a disease if it could get away with it, has no name for any disease or disorder caused by glyphosate. In other words, the cartel doesn’t acknowledge its existence.'

Red Wine Vs White Wine: The Better Friend To Your Heart?

'Consistent evidence from numerous studies indicate that moderate alcohol consumption one or two drinks a day) is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and premature death. But research is conflicting as to whether red wine is actually more beneficial than other forms of alcohol.

Red wine’s alleged advantages are often attributed to an antioxidant called resveratrol, which is found in grape skins. (Because white wine is generally produced without the skins, it contains little if any resveratrol.) Studies in animals and test tubes suggest that the compound may have cardiovascular benefits, including relaxing blood vessels, preventing blood clots, and reducing inflammation. 

There’s evidence that other substances in red wine, such as flavanols–which are in dark chocolate as well–may also be good for the heart.'

63 Year Old Grandfather says Cannabis Oil Cured his Liver Cancer

 


“Do I become a good citizen and die or a criminal and live?” – Mike Cutler

 'Back in 2008 Mike Cutler a 63 year old grandfather-of-nine was diagnosed with liver cancer and given three months to live. However, his doctor had him put on a transplant list and within the year he successfully underwent liver transplant surgery. His doctor pronounced him cancer free and Mike was out of the woods, or so he thought.


Unfortunately, by late 2012 Mike was feeling really bad and soon learned that the liver cancer had returned with a vengeance and was attacking his new liver. His doctors gave him little hope and sent him home to die with a bag of morphine to manage his excruciating pain. His health deteriorated until he was bedridden.'

'Black seed oil and its components are showing promise as therapy for a range of autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the bodies' immune system mounts a response against its own connective tissues. The abnormal immune response results in inflammation of the tissues. If untreated inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis recurs and causes tissue damage.

The connective tissue affected in rheumatoid arthritis is commonly in the joints however it can affect other parts of the body including the lungs, skin, and heart. Traditionally rheumatoid arthritis was treated with steroids to dampen the inflammation and suppress the abnormal immune response.'

'In 1943, Stamatis Moraitis, a Greek war veteran from Ikaria, Greece came to the USA for a combat-related injury to his arm. He wound up falling in love, marrying a Greek-American woman, and having three lovely children. He bought his very own Leave it to Beaver three-bedroom house with his 1951 Chevrolet parked in the driveway.

 Stamatis was living the American Dream. It all seemed Hollywood perfect until 1976.  That’s when Stamatis began experiencing shortness of breath upon exertion – for example, when working or climbing stairs. Eventually, he consulted a doctor who diagnosed him with terminal lung cancer and gave him only months to live. Predictably the doctor urged him to start chemotherapy immediately as it was his only hope.'

When the doctor’s away, the patient is more likely to survive

"Don't get sick on a weekend." That advice is also part of a title of a research paper that evaluates the fates of patients who go through the emergency room on a weekend. These patients are more likely to die. It's just one of a number of studies that suggests patients who enter the hospital while the staffing is lower or the staff more relaxed end up with worse results.

But the precise cause of this enhanced weekend mortality has been hard to determine; is it the reduced staff, a more leisurely approach to care, or some other factor? 

To try to get at the cause, some researchers obtained records of heart patients who had a critical event during a time when hospitals were at full staff, but heart specialists were likely to be out of town. Unexpectedly, they found that the patients did significantly better when the relevant specialists were unavailable."

Using Virtual Reality to Combat Chronic Pain




'For those with chronic pain, the most basic movements can be unbearable. Some patients even develop kinesiophobia – a fear of, or aversion to, movement. Using interactive digital interfaces, the chronic pain sufferer Diane Gromala, professor of interactive arts and technology at Simon Fraser University in Canada, is developing new ways to help alleviate symptoms that could serve as a supplement or alternative to pharmaceuticals.

Through a biofeedback system, Gromala’s interfaces track users’ physiological responses to different movements and mental states. A simulated walk in the woods might cause physical discomfort but, as soon as the patient relaxes, she will see the fog clear from among the trees. Gromala hopes that her system will eventually become a long-term tool for chronic pain sufferers who want to decrease their reliance on fast-acting drugs.'

Unbeknownst to most, a Copernican revolution has already taken place in cancer theory. Today, the weight of evidence indicates that plants and not chemicals are the solution for reversing the global cancer epidemic.

'Our understanding of what causes cancer has undergone something akin to a Copernican revolution in the past decade. Biological fatalism has been the predominant force in medicine over the past half century, where most conditions including cancer were believed predestined 'in the genes,' and therefore impossible to reverse.

Instead of looking for root cause resolution of disease (RCRD), we resigned ourselves to 'finding it early' and in the case of cancer, when doing so (even when it was benign), we waged war against it, quite literally using weapons grade materials (mustard gas- and nuclear materials-derived agents).'

"I call it the Great Salt Debate. Are you wondering if table salt or sea salt can be healthy? If either convey health benefits? If either table salt or sea salt can be harmful to your health?

Just as a deer in nature seeks out salt licks because its body knows it needs that salt to thrive, our bodies need salt and its components to function well.

No wonder I craved salt so much in my late 20’s and 30’s; I was craving its nutrients! Iodine is required by the thyroid to synthesize hormones and to regulate the metabolism. When I got Hashimoto’s Disease I had hypothyroidism, partially signified by poor sleep (hormones gone awry) and weight gain (metabolic imbalance). My thyroid was not getting enough iodine! Although iodine supplementation is controversial, it was obvious I was deficient.

Craving salt is also a sign of adrenal fatigue. Many of our body’s organs require salt to function properly."

Diets that lead to obesity -- specifically diets high in refined sugars and processed oils may cause changes to the brains of obese people that in turn may fuel over-consumption of those same foods and make weight loss more challenging. 

The problem is that the body exerts a strong defense against undernutrition and weight loss, but applies a much weaker resistance to over-consumption and weight gain -- a human behavior food industry scientists have learned to exploit in their favor.'

'As a longtime anxiety sufferer, I’ve experienced quite a few hardships along the road to health and healing.

Outside of the obvious stress, mental anguish and low self-esteem that accompany a mental health disorder, I found it’s the misconceptions surrounding it that are often the most difficult to deal with. Anxiety can force a person into solitude and prevent you from living a happy and fulfilled life. It can swallow you into obscurity, leaving you feeling judged, uncertain and powerless.'

5 Life-Changing Lessons Zorba the Greek Taught Me



 http://www.realfarmacy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Zorba-the-Greek.jpg


'Zorba is the larger- than- life passionate, earthy and unpredictable protagonist of Nikos Kazantzakis’ 1946 novel: Zorba the Greek. The original Greek title was The Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas, but as the novel was widely translated and it became renowned internationally it was eventually and extemporaneously renamed Zorba the Greek.

Interestingly, the Alexis character was actually based on a real person named Yorgis Zorbas, who was a friend and mentor to Kazantzakis.


As legend goes, it was Zorbas who taught Kazantzakis the art of fully living in each moment without regret or fear and most importantly with a deep feeling of awe, gratitude and wonder for whatever life presents – be it pleasure or pain – the “full catastrophe.” Ultimately, Zorbas embodies a childlike willingness to surrender (allow) and trust whatever life manifests moment by precious moment – the good, the bad, or the ugly 


“Those who met him [Yorgis Zorbas] speak of a person free of social conventions, illiterate yet ingenious, and profoundly philosophical, which is why he touched Kazantzakis’ soul.”'

'Ever since the World Health Organization admitted in 2011 that cell phone radiation is "possibly carcinogenic," and may be contributing to the global uptick in brain cancer cases, its far harder to label someone a hypochondriac for being concerned about the health consequences of exposure.[i]  In fact, one study cited in their report showed a 40% increased risk for gliomas in the highest category of heavy users (reported average: 30 minutes per day over a 10-year period) – not exactly a small effect.

A recent study published in the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology confirms that the microwave radiation given off by mobile phones is capable of transforming normal cells into cancerous ones.'

Drugs to stop prostate enlargement have devastating side effects

'As men enter midlife their hormone status begins to change, just as it does in women but the change is more subtle. The high level of testosterone that has kept them fit, virile, reproductive, and free of degenerative disease starts to drop, and some of what is left begins to be converted into other hormones, in this case dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is DHT that powers prostate enlargement, and blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT is the goal of drugs that treat prostate enlargement.'
