'A new turmeric study published in Cancer Letters is paving the way for a revolution in the way that we both understand and treat cancer. Titled, "Targeting cancer stem cells by curcumin and clinical applications," U.S. researchers evaluated the primary polyphenol in the Indian spice known as curcumin for its ability to target cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are believed to be at the root cause of tumor formation and malignancy.

Whereas conventional models of cancer assumed that the majority of the cancer cells within a tumor possess self-renewal capacity to differing degrees, the CSC model proposes that, "[T]he initiation, maintenance, and growth of a tumor is driven by a minor population of cancer cells termed cancer stem cells (CSCs)," and that "These CSCs undergo continuous self-renewal and differentiate to heterogeneous cancer cells, yielding new tumors recapitulating the parental tumors, while the majority of cancer cells lack self-renewal capacity."

'Since he was just a few months old, 10-year-old Zaki Jackson has suffered from a rare form of epilepsy that, at its worst, causes him to have thousands of seizures a day. The seizures, which his mother describes as a "full body electrocution," render him unable to talk or walk, and sometimes cause him to stop breathing.

Over the past decade, his family has tried to combat his syndrome with 17 different pharmaceutical medications, a specialized diet and alternative forms of therapy like acupuncture. The various medications have caused him to gain weight, become incoherent, experience extreme cramping and lose his ability to sleep, but they've never stopped the seizures.' 


Revolutionary “Cottage Food” Law Proposed in Virginia

'Bill would exempt ALL homemade foods from regulation, including perishable foods'

'A proposed cottage-food law in Virginia attempts to go farther than any cottage-food law has gone before. If passed, it would exempt virtually all homemade – or small-farm-made – foods from regulation, provided the foods are sold directly from producer to consumer, in face-to-face transactions.

Cottage food laws typically exempt only non-perishable homemade goodies, like jams, jellies, cakes, cookies, candy and other novelty items that can be stored at room temperature. But the “Virginia Food Freedom Act” would exempt all homemade foods – including meat, dairy, partially cooked foods like chicken pot pie, and other foods requiring refrigeration – from licensing laws, health inspections, sales limitations and basically all government interference of any kind.

Small farmers with 10 or fewer employees would be included in the definition of homemade-food producers.' 


10 Different Teas That Will Help Boost Your Metabolism and Promote Weight Loss

'It's about that time of year where we're fed up of feeling the extra flab and ready to do something about it besides going to the gym. One of the most underrated methods of spiking our metabolism is through antioxidant rich teas. Some teas are actually more than 90% more effective at helping the body burn fat than coffee. While green tea has made most of the headlines in this regard, there are many others which are even more effective and go way beyond weight loss with the ability to detox, help tooth decay and even keep cancer at bay.'


Amazing Results: The Healing Power of Cannabis Oil On Lyme Disease and Lyme Co-infections


'The beginning of my journey with Lyme disease is similar to most. My ending, however, is playing out quite differently than most. I found a tick behind my ear at the age of fourteen, and had various health problems for seven years before I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease, Lupus, Mycoplasma, Bartonella, and Babesia. After two years my Lupus, Mycoplasma, Bartonella and Babesia are entirely eradicated. As far as my Lyme disease goes, I now have zero symptoms.'

'Researchers specifically found that higher levels of the breakdown product of the nasty insecticide DDT (DDE) in the blood of people seemed to fuel the disease. People with higher levels in their bodies were more likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's compared to older people with lower levels.

This research by no means uncovered a definitive cause of Alzheimer's, but it's a groundbreaking study that could inspire more research into the possible environmental factors—specifically chemical pesticides—that trigger Alzheimer's, a brain disease that currently affects about 5 million people in the United States.

If the findings pan out through further research, it could mean that testing for DDE levels in the body could lead to earlier diagnosis, which has been shown to help ease symptoms of Alzheimer's.'

'Almost everyone thinks blueberries taste great and likes to see them on the breakfast table.  But there is a lot more to love about these tiny fruits. Blueberries are one of the richest sources of antioxidants, the natural substances that fight damage caused by free radicals. 

This makes them highly effective in fighting aging and chronic degenerative diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, macular degeneration, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. And now we know that blueberries improve memory.' 


Dried Plums Slow Bone Loss in Aging

'Several recent studies have confirmed what traditional oriental medicine has known for centuries – that dried plums have the capacity to prevent and even reverse bone loss that can occur in our later years. 

Florida State University researchers tested 236 women who were between one and ten years into menopause. The women were randomly divided into two groups. 

One group was given 100 grams of dried plums per day while the other group was given 100 grams of dried apples per day for a year. After doing bone scans at three months, six months and twelve months, the researchers found that the dried plum group showed significantly greater bone mineral density than those women consuming the dried apples over that same period.'


Government Report Offers More Evidence Cannabis is a Wonder Drug for Cancer and Good Health


'As the world’s most beloved herb, Cannabis, continues to be liberated from the persecution of the government and the pharmaceutical-industrial complex, research continues to validate the many health benefits of Cannabis. This time, The National Cancer Institute, a government-funded organization has released a report indicating that cannabis and cannabinoids are indeed powerful agents of good health and wonderful supplements in the fight against cancer.

The report begins with an important summary of the history of Cannabis:

Cannabis use for medicinal purposes dates back at least 3,000 years.[1-5] It was introduced into Western medicine in the 1840s by W.B. O’Shaughnessy, a surgeon who learned of its medicinal properties while working in India for the British East Indies Company.

Imaging Technology Finally Reveals How Emotions Manifest in Your Body


By Dr. Mercola

'I’ve often said that you cannot divorce your health from your emotions. Every feeling you have affects some part of your body, and stress can wreak havoc on your physical health—especially if you’re not exercising or eating right, as both of these can help keep stress in check in the first place.

Still, even if you’re doing everything “right,” your emotions—both chronic and acute—can wield great power over your body.

The classic definition of stress is “any real or imagined threat, and your body’s response to it.” Your body’s natural stress response can have a significant impact on your immune function, brain chemistry, blood sugar levels, hormonal balance, and much more.'

Marijuana Put My Crohn’s Disease Into Remission and It’s Not A Joke


'I feel compelled to share now, although I don’t really want to, because a new study has proven smoked marijuana has a near 100% success rate in putting Crohn’s Disease into remission. I am sick of everyone making jokes about my involvement in the marijuana legalization movement; I’m sick of having to stay quiet about what I do around family or in public for fear or upsetting someone’s delicate sensibilities about “drugs” like marijuana. Let me tell you a thing or two about drugs, marijuana and Crohn’s Disease. It’s not a joke and it is not about “getting high” for me.'

Why No Parent Should Support CBD-only Legislation

Why No Parent Should Support CBD-only Legislation

'In recent weeks, there has been an explosion of newly proposed legislation on CBD-rich cannabis extracts, the type of medical marijuana featured as a treatment for epilepsy in Sanjay Gupta’s “Weed” special in the summer of 2013. Parents fighting for the lives of their epileptic children are desperate for treatment that works, and the power with which these parents can fight should not be underestimated. 

One would imagine their strong voices would be a huge boon to the reform movement, but instead what has happened is the creation of a great divide: CBD-only vs. whole plant medical marijuana. And in the pediatric cannabis advocacy community, the debate has gotten really ugly.

While advocates for broader medical marijuana legislation often cite a “no child left behind” policy – meaning that children with cancer, autism, and other conditions would respond better to medicine with higher levels of THC – there is another part of the debate that has been largely missing from the media coverage:

According to parents who have been effectively treating their children’s epilepsy with cannabis for years, CBD-rich extracts alone are unlikely to provide adequate seizure control without THC supplementation.'


6 Reasons Calorie Counting Is Crazy

6 Reasons Calorie Counting Is Crazy

'Despite the fact that every lasting healthy lifestyle (whole foods, Paleo, vegetarian, low-carb, low-glycemic, Mediterranean, etc.) focuses on what we eat rather than how much we eat, the mainstream still seems to insist that if we just counted our calories more conservatively, we could end the obesity epidemic. The proven fact is that calorie-counting approaches fail 95.4% of the time. That's a higher failure rate than quitting smoking cold turkey.

Blindly eating less to cure obesity is like breathing less to cure allergies. It may offer temporary "relief" but ultimately fails because it is masking symptoms rather than fixing causes. Will eating only 1,200 of anything cause you to lose weight? Yes. So will cutting off your leg. That doesn't mean either is a good idea.'

Scientists Discover Another Way Marijuana Helps The Brain Grow

Research shows for the first time that CBD, like THC, can promote the growth of brain cells.

'In 2005, Canadian researchers made a groundbreaking discovery that would forever discredit the myth that marijuana causes brain damage. What they found was an opposite effect. That is, THC – the main chemical in marijuana and the reason why users get ‘high’ – can actually cause new brain cells to grow.

The process of brain growth is called neurogenesis and does not usually improve with drug use. Marijuana use is a different story, explained Xia Zhang, M.D, Ph.D., associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan and lead author of the study:'


How medical marijuana helps treat autism


'Compounds in marijuana may help treat autism, two major studies concluded.

A study released earlier this year by researchers at Stanford University found that autism may be caused in large part by a mutation in a gene which blocks the action of molecules responsible for signaling in the brain.

These signaling molecules, called endocannabinoids, occur naturally in the human brain. They have a similar chemical structure to the active cannabinoids in marijuana and affect the same receptors in the brain. While it is still unclear how the disruption in endocannabinoid signaling affects the actual symptoms of autism, the research does offer some promise for the prospects of using medical marijuana to treat the condition.'

'Look Under the Hood: All Fat Is Not Created Equally

Fat comes in different flavors. Ever go to a dietitian who used those scary-looking calipers to measure body fat? She was measuring subcutaneous fat, found below your skin’s surface. You can pinch subcutaneous fat. It provides padding for your butt and soles of your feet. In the fat echelon, it’s not so bad.

Subcutaneous fat has an evil — even lethal — stepsister called abdominal or visceral fat. Calipers can’t measure this type of fat, which surrounds your organs and stubbornly refuses to vacate your midsection even after you’ve served an eviction notice.

Visceral fat doesn’t just like to hang out. It also likes to create trouble, releasing signaling proteins called adipokines. Among their havoc, adipokines spike blood pressure, decrease muscle quality, and zap insulin sensitivity, setting the stage for insulin resistance and eventually diabetes and cardiovascular disease.'

Oh, it gets worse. Visceral fat also increases your risk for dementia. A study with middle-aged adults in the Annals of Neurology found visceral fat (especially belly fat) could shrink your brain. Not cool.


Surprising Foods with More Sugar Than A Krispy Kreme Doughnut

9 Surprising Foods With More Sugar Than A Donut | healthylivinghowto.com

'A major new report by Credit Suisse Research Institute1 explores the impact of sugar and sweeteners on humans’ diets, with some shocking revelations and statistics.

Worldwide, the average person consumes 70 grams of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup per day (that’s 17 teaspoons), up 46 percent from three decades ago.

Yet, in countries like the US, Brazil, Australia and Mexico, sugar consumption is actually much higher, averaging 40 teaspoons per person per day for Americans (compared to just seven for those living in China).

And when children younger than 4 are removed from the mix, sugar consumption in the US rises by another 5-10 percent! It’s a shocking amount of sugar, but what is even more startling is the potential damage it can do to your health.'


How to deseed a pomegranate FAST without water

'I’ve been eating a lot of pomegranates lately because they’re cheap, in season, and super healthy.
And every time I mention eating pomegranates, someone asks, ”What’s is the best way to open them?”

The first time I ever bought a pomegranate, I was super pumped to get it home and eat it, but my excitement quickly waned when it took me forever to pick out all the seeds, and made a huge mess. Although it was delicious, I was disappointed by the hassle, and didn’t plan on buying another pomegranate any time soon.

Months later, I was lamenting about this and someone told me to deseed it while holding it submerged in a bowl of water. I tried this technique and it worked beautifully, much faster and no mess. Huzzah! I boarded the pomegranate train and became a regular consumer.

But in the last year I discovered an even better method.
So I shot a quick video to show how to deseed a pomegranate fast, without water and without making a mess. Enjoy!

Iboga, the Matrix, and Pineal Gland Decalcification

ED NOTE: Great talk by a great speaker - and it was banned! But you can view/hear it now. Be fascinated!

'As renowned author and historian Graham Hancock explains in his banned TED talk, The War on Consciousness there is a deliberate effort to prevent sovereign individuals from exploring the vast potential of their own minds. To control a population, the masses must be programmed through spells conjured up by a corrupt corporate media, cultural programs of self-destruction, and the diabolical manipulation of the noosphere

The operating system of the mind is accessed through language, and one’s reality is a combination of the filters, biases and belief systems learned from the dominant conversations in a society. Whom ever controls the language of a society creates the reality for its members.

To further influence the consciousness of human kind in our seemingly backwards world, the mind is targeted and weakened by an onslaught of toxicity. Sodium fluoride, an inorganic chemical compound and toxic waste product of the aluminum industry, is one of the main toxins used by the elite to increase our susceptibility to subliminal messages and mind control. By narcotizing an area in the left occipital lobe of the brain, fluoride makes people docile, passive, disconnected, and obedient.'

HIV & AIDS - Stefan Lanka challenges both Mainstream and Alternative AIDS View

 HIV & AIDS - Stefan Lanka challenges both Mainstream and Alternative AIDS View | Health Supreme | Scoop.it

'"I am absolutely sure that no antibody test in medicine has any absolute meaning.

Especially in HIV antibody testing, it is clear that the antibodies that are detected in the test are present in everybody. Some people have them in higher concentrations, and some in lower concentrations, but only when you reach a very high level of antibodies -- much higher than in any other antibody testing -- are you considered to be "positive."

This is a contradiction in terms because in other antibody tests, the lower your level of antibodies, the higher your risk for a symptomatic infection. But with HIV they say you are "positive" only when you have reached a very high level of antibodies. Below this level, you are said to be negative." -- Dr. Stefen Lanka'

Sepp Hasslberger's insight: 
 (Health Supreme)

AIDS - one of those catchall definitions for what could possibly be wrong with you living in a society where your health is under continual assault, a society where medical intervention is often deadly, where pollution of all kinds is a fact of life and where proper nutrition and taking care of one's own health are considered to be 'an optional'.

Smoking Marijuana Causes ‘Complete Remission’ of Crohn’s Disease, No Side Effects, New Study Shows

'Marijuana – scientific name “cannabis” – performed like a champ in the first-ever placebo-controlled trial of the drug to treat Crohn’s Disease, also known as inflammatory bowel disease.

The disease of the digestive tract afflicts 400,000 – 600,000 people in North America alone causing abdominal pain, diarrhea (which can be bloody), severe vomiting, weight loss, as well as secondary skin rashes, arthritis, inflammation of the eye, tiredness, and lack of concentration.
