ED Note: Please switch to fair trade organic coffee if you haven't. Other coffee plant beans are heavily sprayed with toxins and sometimes enslaved children are forced to pick them.

'Just decades ago doctors and health professionals were warning about the dangers of having too much coffee because of the risk that caffeine was thought to have on the body.
 

However, the last decade has shed a lot of light on the health benefits of coffee and its relationship to cancer.
 

Many decade or more long studies have been coming to a close and the results have been changing everything the medical profession thought they knew about coffee and how it influences the risks of getting cancer.
 

Study after study has been showing the cancer fighting properties of coffee because of the rich antioxidants it contains.'

Psychoneuroimmunology—How Inflammation Affects Your Mental Health




By Dr. Kelly Brogan

 'Psychoneuroimmunology. This is what I aim to practice. Medical terms of this length command our respect for the interconnectedness of different subspecialties, for the futile segmentation and compartmentalization of the body into different organ systems.

As discussed in this previous article I wrote for Dr. Mercola, deconstructing the serotonin model of depression, psychiatry is in a crisis. It can no longer stand on its own, throwing more and more medications at its perceived target.


It seems, therefore, fitting that psychiatry would follow the investigative path of other lifestyle-triggered chronic diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and heart disease. There already exists a bidirectional relationship between all of the major chronic diseases and psychiatric diagnoses (patients who struggle with chronic diseases are more likely to be depressed and vice versa).


The role of inflammation, across these disease states, is better elucidated each day. Let's deconstruct what is known as it applies to mental health.'

Soma Water Filters: High Style, No Substance

soma


'Recently there's been a lot of buzz about a new water filter.
It's beautiful, innovative, eco-friendly, and totally unique.
At first glance I was impressed, but what I found upon investigation, was astounding and infuriating.

Readers of my site know that posting critical product reviews is not my thing, but this company appears to be perpetrating one of the most sophisticated health cons I've seen in awhile.

So I'm compelled to expose it.

After reading the post you'll see what I mean, and hopefully together we can divert a lot of people away from this impostor.'

The Vaccination Hoax



'The history of vaccination is more complicated than most people understand. The anti-vaccine movement is hundreds of years old. It heated up in the 1800s, when parents in the UK became fed up with watching their healthy infants and children become ill or die shortly after the smallpox vaccinations or get sick from smallpox anyway.

Parents and doctors who refused smallpox vaccines, risked losing their homes, their furniture and their livelihoods if Judges found against them.

The smallpox vaccines were made from pus scraped off of diseased cows’ belly sores, contaminated with disease matter from a variety of animals and in some cases, humans. The smallpox vaccine history is not what you think it is, if you think vaccines wiped out smallpox.'

Big Pharma Mafia: Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime

Is Big Pharma like the Mafia? Cochrane Medical Journal founder says YES.


'Removal of drugs should usually not be accompanied by the introduction of other types of treatment. Many patients would gain a better quality of life if their drugs were taken away from them. What we need is to remember Brian McFerrin’s song: “Don’t worry, be happy”. 

We shall all die, but we should remember to live while we are here without worrying that some day in the future we might get ill. It is daunting how many healthy people are put on drugs that lower blood pressure or cholesterol, and it changes people from healthy citizens to patients who may start worrying about their good health.

This can have profound psychological consequences apart from the side effects of the drugs that the patients don’t always realise are side effects, e.g. if they get more tired or depressed after starting antihypertensive therapy or experience problems in their sex life.'

Black Sapote; The Chocolate Pudding Fruit


Important Editor's Note: There is a delicious Black Sapote pudding recipe included in this article, however do not use agave (not really healthy research) -instead use honey or genuine maple syrup. Also use organic, raw milk and or cream if possible or at least use organic. pastured cream/milk.


'Once you open a ripe black sapote (Diospyris dignia) you can see why it is called “chocolate pudding fruit.” The deep rich brown smooth pulp with its spoon-like consistency looks exactly like chocolate pudding.

I am often asked, “What does it taste like?” I want to reply that it tastes exactly what it tastes like but this does not help the unwary. So, for those of you who must know what something tastes like before you venture into unknown territory, it has a sweet and mild flavor and with a little imagination you can actually taste chocolate as well as hints of coffee.'

This Is Your Brain On Aspartame



 

 'Controversy continues to rage over the artificial sweetener aspartame. Since it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, aspartame has made its way into more than 6,000 food items.

The FDA claims aspartame is safe but has set an acceptable daily intake of no more than 50 mg per kilogram of body weight. In other words, an adult weighing 165 pounds should consume no more than 3,750 mg of aspartame a day.

A can of diet soda typically contains about 180 mg of the chemical. That means the FDA’s “safe” limit equates to about 21 cans of diet soda per day.

But is any level of aspartame really safe?'

'Every hour, three children in the United States are diagnosed with type-1 diabetes (1). Type-1 diabetes’ incidence was very low in the first half of the twentieth century. However, became more prevalent, especially in young children, during the second half of the twentieth century and really began to surge during the past twenty years (1). Researchers also see a trend in the increased prevalence of other autoimmune disorders. Not only are certain autoimmune disorders increasingly common, but the autoimmune diseases, as a class, seem to be on the rise.'

'There has been plenty in the news about superbugs, strains of bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotic drugs because of their overuse.  But there has not been much offered as a solution to this problem until now.  A new study is showing that honey can supply the best antibiotic protection without any unwanted side effects.

“The unique property of honey lies in its ability to fight infection on multiple levels, making it more difficult for bacteria to develop resistance,” reported lead researcher Susan M. Meschwitz Ph.D.  The study’s findings were presented last month to the 247th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.'

'Psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms and LSD not only don’t cause mental health problems, they may actually improve mental health, say Norwegian researchers. 

Those are the findings by neuroscience researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, who reported that LSD, psilocybin and mescaline not only don’t cause long-term mental health problems, but that in many cases the use of psychedelics is associated with a lower rate of mental health problems.'

Creating Disease: Big Pharma and Disease Mongering

'You may think there is enough disease in the world already, and that no one would want to add to the diseases that we humans must deal with. But there is a powerful industry in our society that is working overtime to invent illnesses and to convince us we are suffering from them.

This effort is known as "disease mongering," a term introduced by health-science writer Lynn Payer in her 1992 book Disease-Mongers: How Doctors, Drug Companies, and Insurers Are Making You Feel Sick. Payer defined disease mongering as "trying to convince essentially well people that they are sick, or slightly sick people that they are very ill."'

'Detoxification is meant to rejuvenate the mind and body and positively impact well being and clarity. However, sometimes the initial reaction to a detoxification program can be anything but pleasant. The process of healing sometimes includes a healing crisis, also known as the detox reaction, the cleansing reaction, and the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. During a healing crisis, you can feel even worse than before you started your detox program. The good news is that this reaction is likely a sign that you’re getting better by way of a deep and thorough cleansing.'

How To Stop Overthinking – 9 Simple Habits

Photo Credit: spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com


'What is holding people back from the life that they truly want to live?

I’d say that one very common and destructive thing is that they think too much.

They overthink every little problem until it becomes bigger and scarier and it actually is. Overthink positive things until they don’t look so positive anymore.

Or overanalyze and deconstruct things and so the happiness that comes from just enjoying something in the moment disappears.

Now, thinking things through can be a great thing of course. But being an overthinker can result in becoming someone who stands still in life. In becoming someone who self-sabotages the good things that happen in life.


I know. I used to overthink things a lot and it held me back in ways that weren’t fun at all.'

Cancer Treatment Found in Ancient Resin




'We have all known someone who has had cancer or currently is battling it. It seems cancer rates are on the rise and the ‘cure’ has been deemed by the medical industry, as no where in site. Luckily, nature always finds a way. Whether or not we hear it from the ‘Cancer Society’ or not, should not really matter. Studies have been done and research is in, cancer treatment has been found in the ancient resin of frankincense – distilled as an essential oil

That’s right, the same oil that was supposedly gifted baby Jesus, along with gold and myrrh, has been found to have powerful healing capacity, maybe there is something to that story. Frankincense, especially oil distilled from the species found in Oman, has been shown to eliminate every type of cancer cell it has come in contact with – leaving the healthy cells alone.'

'Despite the fact that vegetables have been proven to help lower your risk of chronic disease and support longevity, most Americans are not eating nearly enough of these natural, relatively inexpensive superfoods.

The latest data shows that nearly 23 percent of Americans report consuming vegetables and fruits less than one time daily, with a median vegetable intake of just 1.6 times per day overall.1

Adding in more vegetables to your diet is a simple and powerful step to dramatically improve your health. Vegetables are quick to prepare and come in so many different varieties that they should suit virtually everyone’s tastes.

If you want even more motivation to eat more veggies, check out these newly unveiled health benefits (which are so dramatic the researchers called them “staggering.”)

'In some places, towns essentially shut down in the afternoon while everyone goes home for a siesta. Unfortunately, in the U.S.—more bound to our corporate lifestyles than our health—a mid-day nap is seen as a luxury and, in some cases, a sign of pure laziness. But before you feel guilty about that weekend snooze or falling asleep during a movie, rest assured that napping is actually good for you and a completely natural phenomena in the circadian (sleep-wake cycle) rhythm.'

Reinventing Humanity – A New World Order Wet Dream

 


‘Synthetic food, synthetic voice, synthetic body, synthetic memory, synthetic brain, synthetic everything. That is what we are headed for at an increasingly accelerated rate. We are losing our humanity minute by minute and replacing it with technology. This is not an accident. No, it is quite intentional. We are being programmed to accept the theory that technology is somehow better than nature, and that those who use it are superior to those who don’t, when in actuality, we are becoming hopelessly dependent on it.

There is nothing wrong with technology when it is used as a tool for accomplishing worthy goals. However, there is a big difference between using it in a positive, beneficial way, and as a manipulative tool to create terminal dependence as a way of life.'

'This could save your life, remove pain and add many many years of quality and creativity to your life. If you have been looking for the fountain of youth, you may have found it, and guess what, it is free! 

 Inclined Bed Therapy started to spread across the internet in 2005 by the work of three heros in alternative medicine. Namely Andrew Fletcher who discovered IBT, and was quickly supported by Chris Gupta from Share The Wealth and Brian McInturff ND from ElectricHerbalism.com. 

I (Ken Uzzell - Physical Therapies, Nutritionist and Trauma Release Therapist) was quick to jump in fourth place as I discovered Xtreme help and support for the entire human system and frame. The evidence is in, and since observing hundreds of clients and reading many reports by people trying IBT have become more than surprised with the overall health benefits provided. No other therapy today can offer so much help with so little resources.'

New Study Links GMO Food To Leukemia


'A groundbreaking new study published in the current issue of the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases reveals the potential "leukemogenic" properties of the Bt toxin biopesticides engineered into the vast majority of GMO food crops already within the US food supply.

Last September, the causal link between cancer and genetically modified food was confirmed in a French study, the first independent long-term animal feeding study not commissioned by the biotech corporations themselves. The disturbing details can be found here: New Study Finds GM Corn and Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats

Now, a new study published in the Journal of Hematology & Thromboembolic Diseases indicates that the biopesticides engineered into GM crops known as Bacillus Thuringensis (Bt) or Cry-toxins, may also contribute to blood abnormalities from anemia to hematological malignancies (blood cancers) such as leukemia.[i]'

10 Reasons You Should Be Eating Romaine Lettuce Above All Others

 http://www.whatsontheplate.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/rommaine-lettuce-salad-l.jpg



'Green leaf, red leaf, butterhead and iceberg are just a few common types of lettuce available at most markets. However, in terms of nutrient density, none are healthier than Romaine. 

There are plenty of other green leafs which are even healthier such as spinach, kale, arugula, radicchio, endive etc, but for common lettuce types, romaine is king. Leafy greens in general are likely the number one food you can eat to regularly help improve your health.

If you start your meal with a salad made of romaine lettuce you will be sure to add not only a variety of textures and flavors to your meal but an enormous amount of nutritional value. Most of the domestic U.S. harvest of romaine lettuce and other salad greens comes from California and is available throughout the year.'

What's New and Beneficial About Onions


http://lifehackery.com/qimages/5/onions.jpg





 Photo Credit:Lifehackery.com

'If you’ve been eating an apple a day to keep the doctor away, you would be wise to add an onion a day to that regimen. This humble vegetable is a member of the Allium genus, making it closely related to other superfoods like garlic, leeks, scallions, and chives.

This means onions are rich in sulfur-containing compounds that give them both their characteristic odor and much of their health-boosting potential.

As one of the oldest cultivated plants, onions do not disappoint in terms of nutrition. They’re a very good source of vitamins C and B6, iron, folate, and potassium. But it’s their phytochemicals – including the flavonoid quercetin and allyl disulphide – that are most exciting to researchers.'
