Personal Testimony: Cannabis Vs. COPD


'I first came across Jeff’s story in the group ‘Cannabis Oil Success Stories’, where he shared a link to an article written about him on the blog for Legalize Louisiana. In the article, and in the group, Jeff claimed to have cured himself of his Stage 3 COPD by ingesting a daily dose of cannabis oil. He was first officially diagnosed with scarred lung tissue and COPD five years ago. 

Before he heard about the oil he was on several medications to help him cope with the side effects of the lung damage that results from the chronic bronchitis and other breathing issues that come with having the disease. He suffered constantly from severe chest and back pain and the inability to breathe (something called ‘air-hunger breathlessness’). 

He was eventually put on oxygen. His health quickly deteriorated and he was informed by doctors that eventually the disease would kill him. After a bad reaction to a doctor prescribed medication resulted in spending a month on life support with a tracheotomy in the ICU, Jeff found new resolve to seek hope where his doctors gave him none.'

'Alzheimer's Disease: A Disturbingly Common Modern Rite of Passage

A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), sadly, has become a rite of passage in so-called developed countries. AD is considered the most common form of dementia, which is defined as a serious loss of cognitive function in previously unimpaired persons, beyond what is expected from normal aging.

A 2006 study estimated that 26 million people throughout the world suffer from this condition, and that by 2050, the prevalence will quadruple, by which time 1 in 85 persons worldwide will be afflicted with the disease.

Given the global extent of the problem, interest in safe and effective preventive and therapeutic interventions within the conventional medical and alternative professions alike are growing.'

Vitamin D – Why You are Probably NOT Getting Enough

'WHAT VITAMIN DO WE need in amounts up to 25 times higher than the government recommends for us to be healthy?

What vitamin deficiency affects over half of the population, is almost never diagnosed, and has been linked to many cancers, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic muscle pain, bone loss, and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis?

What vitamin is almost totally absent from our food supply?

What vitamin is the hidden cause of so much suffering that is so easy to treat?

The answer to all of these questions is vitamin D.'


U.S.: Two-Thirds of Doctors Favor Medical Marijuana In New Poll


'More than two out of every three physicians in the United States -- 67 percent -- say that medical marijuana should be an option for patients, according to the results of a new WebMD/Medscape poll.

WebMD on Thursday released Marijuana on Main Street, a special report looking at the debate over medicinal cannabis. The site surveyed nearly 3,000 consumers and Medscape surveyed more than 1,500 doctors about their opinions on legalization, cannabis as a treatment option, and the perceived risks and benefits of its use.

"Despite more than 20 years of anecdotal evidence about the medicinal effects of marijuana, doctors and consumers remain in search of answers," said Dr. Michael Smith, chief medical editor at WebMD. "The findings of our consumer-physician survey indicate the medical community's support for the use of marijuana as a treatment option, particularly among clinical specialists that have pioneered research.'


It's Official! Chocolate IS a Health Food

Post image for It’s Official! Chocolate IS a Health Food!

'A study released earlier this month looked at the effects of dark chocolate on the gut microbiome. Yikes! My two favorite subjects – chocolate and gut bacteria! Nirvana! The findings were presented at the 247th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) – and revealed that certain gut bacteria ferment the molecules of dark chocolate, producing polyphenolic compounds that are anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory effect may reduce the long term risk of stroke.

This study was funded by Louisiana State College of Agriculture and a Louisiana AgCenter Undergraduate Research Grant. It is the first, ever, to look at the effects of dark chocolate on the microbial communities in the gut. According to John Finley Ph.D., who was the leader of the study,

When these compounds are absorbed by the body, they lessen the inflammation of cardiovascular tissue, reducing the long-term risk of stroke.'


Manufacturing Madness: The Pseudoscience of Modern Psychiatry

'Twenty-six years have passed since Prozac, the antidepressant drug, was introduced to the US market and quickly achieved the label of a "wonder drug." In the decade that followed, other antidepressant drugs including paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), fluvoxamine (Luvox), and citalopram (Celexa) would be released, creating an entire class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). 

Since hitting the shelves, the popularity of SSRIs has skyrocketed. Today, 1 in every 10 Americans reaches for antidepressants daily.[1] This ratio jumps to an incredible 25% among women between the ages of 40 and 59.[2] Approximately 5% of children ages 12 to 19 are also taking antidepressants.[3]  Worldwide, mental illness is now the leading cause of disability among children.'


The Cancer Industry: Failure, Lies and Big Profits

'If you or someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, it is in your best interest to consider a second opinion away from the mainstream of the cancer industry. Oncologists will insist and even demand your immediate acceptance of surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy. 

They will frighten you more than you already are with all kinds of horror tales and statistical babble, and even threaten you with not being your doctor anymore to keep you from seeking a second opinion outside of the cancer industry.  This is because they know that anyone hearing other options would never willingly submit to their expensive and horrendously toxic treatments that in most cases ruin health and shorten life.'


Diet soft drinks 'linked' to heart attacks, strokes and cardiovascular deaths, doctors say


'People who regularly have two or more diet soft drinks a day could be up to 50 per cent more likely to die from heart disease, a new study has shown.

Artificially sweetened fizzy drinks, though marketed as a viable healthy alternative, were linked to a host of health problems including strokes and heart attacks.

Compared to those who never or rarely consume the drinks, regular users were 30 per cent more likely to suffer what was described as a "cardiovascular event".'


Effectiveness of the Flu Vaccine against Influenza is a huge HOAX!

'I called my local pharmacy to find out who could get the shot. They told me I didn’t even need a doctor’s note. I asked if a pregnant woman could get the shot and they said that it wasn’t contraindicated, but some people ask for preservative free shots. I asked if I was feeling under the weather if I could still get the shot and the answer was “sure no problem.”

So it’s easy. No doctor’s note. All you need is insurance and if you don’t have it just $31.99 per shot – at least that’s the price at my local pharmacy. It didn’t even matter if you were sick you’re ready for your shot. It couldn’t be any simpler.

But a couple of things were missing – science and information.'


Is BPA Behind The Global Obesity Epidemic?

Is BPA Behind The Global Obesity Epidemic?

'Obesity is developing at an alarming rate even in developing countries. Maybe the global obesity epidemic has nothing to do with eating too much food. Research suggests the problem may be rooted in your food's packaging.

A Kaiser Permanente study has found that girls between 9 and 12 years of age with higher-than-average levels of bisphenol-A (BPA) in their urine had DOUBLE the risk of being obese compared to girls with lower levels of BPA.

Halotherapy and Salt Rooms: Fresh Air For Lungs and Alternative Medicine

'Salt has been an essential, virtually omnipresent part of medicine for thousands of years. It has been used as a remedy, a support treatment, and a preventive measure. Salt can be taken internally or applied topically and continues to be administered in an exceedingly wide variety of forms. 

Although popular and long established in Europe and many other countries, spelenotherapy and halotherapy are quickly catching on in America as powerful alternative and complementary medical modalities. Spelenotherapy is a method that uses the specific and unique properties of natural underground salt caves/mines to treat chronic and allergic respiratory disorders. Halotherapy involves salt aerosol inhalation and the use of saline solutions, typically utilizing a halogenerator.'


Does “Oil Pulling” Offer Real Health Benefits?

'I didn’t realize how trendy oil pulling was until I saw a story about it on my local news. Sure, I've heard alternative outlets talk about it for a while, but now it’s getting more mainstream.

Many people are touting the health benefits of oil pulling, claiming it treats conditions like diabetes, asthma, acne, and even allergies.

But what is the real scoop on this ancient practice? Is it really some kind of a “cure-all,” as it’s claimed to be?'


Manuka Honey Effective Against Antibiotic Resistant MRSA

Manuka Honey Effective Against Antibiotic Resistant MRSA

'For years doctors have been overprescribing antibiotics. A University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine study found physicians commonly use antibiotics to treat hospitalized patients with acute viral respiratory track infections, in spite of the fact antibiotics are known to be ineffective for these infections.[i]

And the growing popularity of antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers contributes to the saturation of the world in antibacterials.

As a result, many scientists have been warning of a possible medical catastrophe from an epidemic of antibiotic resistant superbugs. Fortunately, manuka honey may be a natural and ancient solution to a modern health disaster.'


97 Percent of The Time, Chemotherapy Does Not Work And Continues To Be Used Only For One Reason


'Doctors and pharmaceutical companies make money from it. That's the only reason chemotherapy is still used. Not because it's effective, decreases morbidity, mortality or diminishes any specific cancer rates. In fact, it does the opposite. 

Chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates. Most chemotherapy patients either die or are plagued with illness within 10-15 years after treatment. It destroys their immune system, increases neuro-cognitive decline, disrupts endocrine functioning and causes organ and metabolic toxicities. 

Patients basically live in a permanent state of disease until their death. The cancer industry marginalizes safe and effective cures while promoting their patented, expensive, and toxic remedies whose risks far exceed any benefit. This is what they do best, and they do it because it makes money, plain and simple.'


How Stress and Negativity Prevent Cancer Healing

Scientists Probe Dark Chocolate's Health Secrets

By Dr. Mercola

'The health benefits of dark chocolate are all the rage right now, with increasing numbers of studies pointing to its rich concentrations of beneficial antioxidants and polyphenols.

This applies particularly to dark chocolate because it contains a higher concentration of cacao seeds than milk chocolate, and therein lies the secret to its health-promoting powers.' 


Spring Cleaning, the Non-Toxic Way

'Spring is right around the corner, and as the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time for the age old ritual of spring cleaning your home. The featured video also gives several pointers for “dusting off” your health and fitness routines, to demarcate a fresh start.

In this article, I’ll focus on spring cleaning your home, as this is an area where many unwittingly introduce more unnecessary toxins into their lives.

The typical American home contains about three to 10 gallons of toxic materials1 in the form of household cleaning products. Indeed, the very things you use to clean your house are actually among the primary sources of toxins and indoor air pollution you expose yourself to on a regular basis.' 


How to Reduce Risk of Elbow and Wrist Injuries

'Being a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and a certified tennis nut, over the years, I've found that a few specific stretches and massaging techniques can reduce risk of elbow and wrist injuries. Most of the top pros, most notably Murray and Nadal, bring their own physios with them on the road to do this work for them, but it's easily done on your own with some know-how. 

Most of the muscles that make up the front and back of your forearms originate as tendons that are firmly embedded in a portion of bone in your elbow region. These tendons become muscles that span most of the length of your forearms, and in your wrist area, these muscles transition back to being tendons, which insert into one of the bones that make up your hand. 

Every time you flex or extend your wrist, these forearm muscles contract or stretch, putting stress on their origin and insertion points in your elbow and wrist areas.'

'Pine pollen powder has been used extensively in traditional cultures throughout Asia. The earliest mention of pine tree pollen's medicinal use is in Chinese herbalism from the classic text "The Pandects of Materia Medica" by Shen Nong. The benefits of pine pollen have also been used by the Koreans where it is sold in boxes much like baking soda or other baking ingredients. It is used in food for it's amazing mineralization and adaptogenic properties.

To date there is no information about pine pollen powder's history of use in Western herbalism, Native American herbalism or Ayurvedic herbalism. All of these systems have used pine nuts medicinally (which are mildly androgenic) and Native American herbalism uses the inner bark of pine trees as a food and medicine as well.'

'Can we just hang up our hats and admit that every fruit is a superfruit? It turns out peaches are beyond amazing.

A Washington State University food scientist and colleagues at Texas A&M have found that compounds in peaches can inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells and their ability to spread. They are emphasizing good nutrition for preventing cancer.

Compelling research in Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, showed that the compounds could be recommended as a novel addition to therapies that reduce the risk of metastasis, or spread. But it doesn’t have to come from a compound or supplement.

Just two to three peaches a day, which could easily be achieved with a juicer, blender or blaster - have an astounding effect.'

Marijuana Medicine's Near-Miraculous Healing Powers Require the Whole Plant—Not Just One Oil Extract

'Ever since marijuana was banned by the federal government in the 1930s, proponents of prohibition have insisted that cannabis must remain illegal to protect America’s children. “Protecting the children” continues to be the calculated cornerstone of anti-marijuana propaganda, the cynical centerpiece of the war on drugs.

How ironic, then, that today thousands of families in the United States are desperately seeking cannabis remedies to protect their children from deadly diseases. The erstwhile “Assassin of Youth” has become the savior for kids with catastrophic seizure disorders and other life-threatening conditions.'


Are Millions of Americans Being Poisoned by Their Own Dental Fillings?

"I was pretty much housebound for a couple years,” she recalls. “I just didn't have the strength to leave the house by myself. I was able to keep my house fragrance-free but I had trouble being in a crowd, like on a bus or in an audience where you're sitting next to people because so many people wear fragrances. Or walking on the streets, the car exhaust would be overpowering."

A friend suggested her problem might be mercury exposure from her dental fillings, but she dismissed the idea. After all, her neurologist had already tested her blood for mercury and did not find anything to worry about.

Brazil Nuts are Best Source of Cancer Fighting Selenium


'Rich, creamy Brazil nuts are the best source of selenium, the mineral that works with zinc to prevent breast cancer. A recent study at the University of Otago in New Zealand found that eating just two Brazil nuts a day is as effective in increasing selenium and boosting glutathione as taking a selenium supplement. And eating Brazil nuts brings many other benefits not found in selenium supplements.'
