Gardasil: My Daughter’s Worst Nightmare

 http://www.davidicke.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/legacy_images/stories/June201396/gardasil.png

'Cancer is a frightening word. Any parent in the world would do whatever was in their power to protect their child from this terrible disease. I had no idea adding Gardasil to our list of protective measures would turn our lives into a nightmare.

Allie is my beautiful 12 year old daughter. She is the youngest of my three children. Having been born 12 years after her brother and sister, she was a little spoiled. Allie made every day a party. For several years we could not eat a meal without someone spitting milk while laughing at something she said.  She is a very clever, witty and funny girl constantly putting on shows for us!  She has always been very healthy except for occasional bronchitis and a few bouts of strep throat.  Recently, all that changed…

Allie received her first Gardasil shot February 2, 2012 along with 3 other vaccinations including the one for Meningitis.  February was a month of severe nosebleeds, headaches, stomach issues and generally not feeling well. I never reported to the doctor as we do not call for every little thing. At the time, thought nothing of it.'

How Sitting For Prolonged Periods Is Stalling Your Metabolic Machinery And What To Do About It



'There are serious consequences that result when the muscular engine sits on 'idle' and in long periods in sedentary positions. Prolonged sitting can lead to loss of shoulder motion, chronic pain, walking deficits, neck-related headaches, the inability to exercise, and can literally impede the ability to metabolize fat and sugar, potentially raising the risk for cardiovascular disease.'

Food can be medicine or poison --the choice is YOURS

'The other day, an acquaintance asked me for some advice for his wife, who has long suffered with symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. He explained that her symptoms had gotten so bad that she was barely able to leave the home, and that their social life had become non-existent. 

Typically, I find that I can't really be of service when a person asks for help for someone else. If the person who is experiencing symptoms won't ask for help directly, well, over the years, I have found that in most such cases, there isn't enough desire to make the changes needed to experience a turnaround.

Still, after asking several questions and learning more about this fellow's wife, I asked him to have her get back to me with a detailed list of what she eats and drinks in a typical week. I explained that in reviewing her diet, I would be happy to share any suggestions that came to mind.'

How to Cook Healthy in a Tiny Kitchen

'A couple of weeks ago we did a survey that some of you answered. Here’s a question that we received, which I’d like to answer today:

Can someone please show those of us on a budget and living in tiny quarters, with kitchens the size of closets, how to afford and prepare all this wonderful health food? Just once, I’d like to see a fancy prep demonstration held in a kitchen my size…

That’s a great question!

I must admit that I’m a happy renter. I’ve never purchased any real estate in my life, not because I think there’s anything wrong with it, but because I like the freedom of not owning anything and being able to move whenever I want.

For that reason, and the fact that I’ve lived in many different cities, I have had the chance to experiment with different kitchens. Some were large and modern, and some were extremely small, kind of like the one you’re describing.'

If you asked "Do vaccinations cause autism?"

'...to anyone in the medical establishment, government or drug industry, the answer would be a firm NO, with supportive peer review medical publications. However, if you asked this question to mothers of autistic children, or the (DAN) physicians treating them, the answer would be a an equally emphatic YES, of course, pointing to their own supportive medical studies.

'Intestinal gas and bloating are annoying and sometimes embarrassing conditions which plague much of the western world. Poor dietary habits and improper digestion prevalent in western society are major contributors to gas and bloating. Some estimates report that people with poor diets may expel gas 14 or more times daily. Fortunately, some sensible dietary changes and natural remedies can prevent future bouts of gas and bloating as well as relieve current episodes.

One good way to avoid gas and bloating is to avoid foods that are known to cause gas and indigestion, such as fried foods, spicy foods, processed foods and refined sugar. Other foods which may lead to gas and bloating include most beans, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, onions, apples, corn, oats, potatoes, most dairy products, pears, prunes, and peaches.'

Almond Spinach Basil Pesto

http://www.foodrenegade.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Almond-Spinach-Basil-Pesto-Pin.jpg


'If there is one food that I could eat everyday – it’s pesto. Pesto is incredibly versatile; not only is it amazing on fresh sprouted flour pasta, but also as a spread on grilled cheese, topped on salmon filets, as sauce on top of homemade sourdough pizza, mixed into butter for a delicious punch of flavor, added into soup – literally, the possibilities are endless!

This recipe for Almond Spinach Basil Pesto is one of my favorites – it is budget friendly since you use more spinach than fresh basil and almonds instead of expensive pine nuts. However, you do not compromise on flavor. This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily, we make big batches of this pesto and freeze it in smaller portions to use throughout the months. Trust me, you will LOVE this!'

The Diet Myth that is Destroying the Health of the World

Photo Credit: healthimpactnews.com

'Diet myths abound in the health industry, but one of the biggest myths of all is the idea that a calorie is a calorie, no matter where you get it from, or what the chemical or nutritional makeup of it is.

If you care about your health and are truly working to keep your weight down, then you need to know the truth about calories as well as the substances that distort how calories work in your body.
For example, sugar is one of the major health topics in the news these days, with “sugar is sugar” news updates, ads, and counter-ads.

Your body actually treats sugar in the same way it treats alcohol and other toxins. This is in large part how sugars can damage your liver and other organs, and why Dr. Lustig refers to sugar as a toxin. I recently wrote about this at length in the article, Is Sugar Toxic?'

Clean your Body’s Drains: How to Detoxify your Lymphatic System




'Did you know that we are exposed to 82,000 different toxins, chemically-based products and processed foods in our environment weekly?

Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of eliminating harmful toxins from the body so that it can function at its best. Toxins are man-made chemicals found in the air, water, food, household cleaners and cosmetic products as well as waste products produced by normal cellular activity.

When toxins enter the body through the skin, nasal passage or mouth, the body prevents “pollution” by surrounding the toxins with fat and water and stores them in different areas of the body. This can put a strain on our body’s own detox system (the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood and lymphatic systems). These systems can become burdened as they try to safely excrete toxins.'

'It's cold and flu season again, and time to make sure your immune system is up to the task of protecting you.  One of the best ways to make sure your immune system is first rate is through the use of adaptogens, a group of substances that have nonspecific actions in the body and create minimal disruption while they normalize body functions.  Two herbal pillars of Chinese medicine, Astragalas and Schisandra, are adaptogens rapidly gaining favor in the Western world. 
 
Walking the tightrope


You and your immune system do a constant balancing act as you walk the tightrope of life. Let your immune system weaken too much, and the door is opened to pathogens and cancer. Let it strengthen too much, and the result can be systemic inflammation, allergies and autoimmune disorders. Astragalus and Schisandra function as balance beams to keep you perfectly centered on that tightrope.'

Medical Marijuana: A "Cure" for Autism?

 http://www.marijuana.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Autism.png

'At a medical marijuana event, a man and his wife came up and quietly said they wanted to talk confidentially about how medical cannabis "cured autism" in their daughter. 

The woman held the hand of the 7-year-old girl who was the couple’s daughter.

“Our daughter was diagnosed with autism,” the man said, “but look at her. She’s not displaying signs of autism, is she? It’s because medical marijuana cured her autism, but the medical establishment and the law are blocking research into it, and we have to hide what it has done for her.”'

Big Pharma Gives Another Child Narcolepsy via the Swine Flu Vax, Then Cures It with a New Miracle Drug That Costs Over $20K per Year

 http://www.amfirstbooks.com/IntroPages/NonToolbarTopics/Trojan_Horse_Vaccination/Art/David_Dees_flu_vacc_playset.jpg

‘Before you line your kids up to have this year’s flu vaccine sprayed up their noses or injected into their arms, consider the fact that in Europe, children developed incurable debilitating narcolepsy after receiving injections from a drug developed by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). But it’s okay – they have created a miracle treatment that costs the child’s family only a bit over $20,000 per year…forever.

More than 800 children across Europe have been diagnosed with this lifelong neurological disorder and the evidence is overwhelming in the implication of the vaccine.’

The Deadly Truth About Flu Vaccines and Pregnancy

The Deadly Truth: Flu Vaccines and Pregnancy


'Why does the CDC claim a flu vaccine during pregnancy is a safe and effective when even the H1N1 vaccine insert clearly states this is not true?

According to all official health reports, we are now fully in flu season. It is that time of year when public health officials, physicians pediatricians and pharmacists warn that everyone over 6 months of age and older should protect themselves and get vaccinated. This includes renewed propaganda to influence pregnant women to protect their unborn child and to threaten healthcare workers with job termination if they refuse vaccination.

A recent case that has received widespread media attention across the major networks was the firing of a pregnant nurse, Dreonna Breton, from her job at Horizon Healthcare Services in Lancaster Pennsylvania for refusing the flu vaccine. Having waded through the scientific research about flu vaccine safety, Breton made the decision to reject because she felt the lack of safety outweighed the vaccine's benefits.'

Fascinating New Study Shows How Emotions Are Mapped On The Human Body


'Emotions coordinate our behavior and physiological states during survival-salient events and pleasurable interactions. Even though we are often consciously aware of our current emotional state, such as anger or happiness, the mechanisms giving rise to these subjective sensations have remained unresolved. Brilliant research by Finnish scientists has mapped the areas of our body that are experiencing an increase or decrease in sensory activity when we experience a particular emotion.'

How Cannabinoids May Slow Brain Aging



'Stoners aren’t known for their memory prowess but a new review suggests that drugs similar to marijuana’s active ingredients may hold promise for preventing— or even reversing— brain aging and possibly Alzheimer‘s and other degenerative brain diseases.

Since the mid 2000′s researchers have been building an appreciation for the power of marijuana-like substances that make up the brain’s cannabinoid systems. In animal experiments, for example, synthetic compounds similar to THC—marijuana’s main psychoactive component—have shown promise in preserving brain functions. A 2008 study even demonstrated that a THC-like substance reduced brain inflammation and improved memory in older rats.'

Seven Drugs Whose Dangerous Risks Emerged Only After Big Pharma Made Its Money

Whether it’s an FDA advisory or a trial lawyer solicitation about harm that may have been done to you, the warnings are always belated and useless. If a drug you took four years ago may have given you liver damage, why didn’t the FDA tell you then? Why didn’t the FDA recall the drug or better yet, not approve it in the first place?'

Walk in the Forest to Heal Oneself

forest-bathing

'I have always been a nature lover, who appreciates spending time outdoors and soaking in the positive energy of the green surroundings. So I was simply thrilled when I came across a popular practice in Japan called ‘Shinrin-yoku’ which means ‘taking in the forest atmosphere’ also known as ‘forest bathing‘.

Spending time in nature is healing energy for the mind, body and soul. The idea with Shinrin-yoku, a term coined by the government in 1982 but inspired by ancient Shinto and Buddhist practices, is to let nature enter your body through all five senses, and feel at one with the forest. It is about being mindful of your surroundings and the experience.'

Five Ways To Never Be Stressed Again

 


'Everybody feels stress and knows it intimately, but very few of us think about what stress actually is.

Stress is a thought. That’s it. No more, no less. If that’s true, then we have complete control over stress, because it’s not something that happens to us but something that happens in us.

The dictionary definition of stress is, “bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an existent equilibrium.” It is your thoughts out of balance.

The medical definition of stress is, “the perception of a real or imagined threat to your body or your ego.” It could be a tiger chasing you or your belief that your spouse is mad at you (even if he or she is not). Whether it is real or imagined, when you perceive something as stressful, it creates the same response in the body.'

'The slate is clean, the page is white, and a New Year stretches out before us. What choices will we make and what lessons must we learn? How exciting to expect this year to be the best yet to come!The canvas is blank, and the brush is in your hand.

I hope you will choose to live consciously. I hope you will choose to nourish your mind, body and soul. Let’s start with your mind—remember, that is truly where all healing begins.

When you tell yourself that you can’t have something anymore because you are on a diet, your body immediately senses that you are lacking something or longing for something you can’t have. Lack equates to famine, and famine elicits the good old stress response, hard wired into your DNA to ensure survival. Any time your subconscious mind perceives stress, lack, or famine, it goes into fat storage mode.'

Your Personal Health Code: How to Start Your Year Without Resolutions

New Year


'Rather than make resolutions you may not keep, why not create your own health code for 2014?

Are New Year’s resolutions necessary?

We make them all too easily, and break them just as readily. Why not try something bigger and more meaningful this year? Why not make your health a priority?

It’s not easy to achieve optimal wellness. It helps to have an overall plan, which you can call your personal health code.

Your Personal Health Code

Your personal health code is the strategy by which you conduct your life, including the daily details of how you live. This may involve your dietary choices, exercise habits, sleep routines, and nutritional philosophy.

Are you a vegetarian, vegan, cooked or raw foodie, or omnivore? Do you follow a traditional Chinese or other ethnic diet? Are you committed to the yogi lifestyle, including the Ayurveda philosophy, or someone who includes yoga postures into an overall fitness plan? Do you shop for clothing made from sustainable fabrics sewn in fair trade factories? Do you avoid GMO foods? You get the point, I’m sure.

Here are some suggestions on how to formulate your personal health code.'
