Edible Plants 'Talk' To Animal Cells, Promote Healing

 http://runningfornirvana.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/tumblr_m2lo5tko8j1qlw8vco1_500-1.png?w=630


'A groundbreaking new study published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research titled, "Interspecies communication between plant and mouse gut host cells through edible plant derived exosome-like nanoparticles," reveals a new way that food components 'talk' to animal cells by regulating gene expression and conferring significant therapeutic effects. 

With the recent discovery that non-coding microRNA's in food are capable of directly altering gene expression within human physiology,[1] this new study further concretizes the notion that the age old aphorism 'you are what you eat' is now consistent with cutting edge molecular biology.'

'We now know that an increase in asthma coincides with a switch from butter to certain oil-based diets. A large new Northwestern Medicine study ties the increasing consumption of supposedly healthy vitamin rich oils -- canola, soybean and corn -- to the rising incidence of lung inflammation and asthma. All three oils coincidentally come from genetically modified sources.

The new study shows drastically different health effects of soybean, corn and canola oils in comparison to olive oil, the latter which can actually improve lung function.'

'A new study published in the journal Vaccine has brought to light an extremely disturbing though still virtually unreported dark side to immunization campaigns within low-income countries, namely, the observation that infant mortality sometimes increases when the number of co-administered vaccines increases; a finding diametrically opposed to the widely held belief that vaccination is always a life-saving intervention, and that the more vaccines administered to infants the better.'

Here’s How To Avoid Carcinogens When You’re Grilling

‘After our wicked cold winter this year, we’re oh-so-ready to just get outside. One of the iconic outdoor summer activities is grilling: Let The Flames Begin!

But we typically assume that foods from the backyard BBQ or the Fourth of July cook-out are bad for you. That conventional wisdom, however, doesn’t have to be true.

Sure, your annual Memorial Day burger and braut bonanza can pack on pounds and become bad for your health, even if you eat the nitrate-free versions. But the health of your summer grill has just as much to do with what you’re cooking, as it does with how you cook it.

Because how you grill can either decrease or increase the carcinogens you’re downing by the spork-full.’

'Do you have myrtle essential oil in your medicine cabinet?  How about in your kitchen cupboard? This essential oil can help your family’s health in many ways.

Myrtle (Myrtus communis L., Myrtaceae) is a medicinal herb that is used in traditional medicine in many parts of the world. Its berries, leaves and fruits have been used extensively as a traditional folk medicine for the treatment of disorders such as diarrhea, peptic ulcer, hemorrhoids, inflammation, pulmonary and skin diseases.

Clinical and experimental research studies suggest that the essential oil of myrtle possesses an even broader range of benefits, which include antioxidative, anticancer, anti-diabetic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It also protects the liver (hepatoprotective) and the nervous system (neuroprotective).'

'Cucumbers have not received as much press as other vegetables in terms of health benefits, but this widely cultivated food provides us with a unique combination of nutrients. Here are 20 incredible benefits of cucumbers. 

At the top of the phytonutrient list for cucumbers are its cucurbitacins, lignans, and flavonoids. These three types of phytonutrients found in cucumbers provide us with valuable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer benefits.

Organophosphates and other pesticides are often used on conventionally grown cucumbers making them highly toxic, so try to buy organic if possible or rinse thoroughly with vinegar.'

'Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals across the US are supposed to provide quality health care for veterans who have served the country.

As the population, and especially the veteran population, ages, there has been an influx of people needing care, including veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, not to mention younger generations who have fought in wars during the last 10 years.

Increasingly, VA hospitals are struggling to keep up with the need for care, but instead of coming up with solutions to ensure patients receive timely health care there are allegations of poor oversight, secret waiting lists, and even falsification and destruction of appointment records at several VA hospitals.'

“Extreme” Levels of Roundup Detected in Food—Are You Eating This Toxic Contaminant?

'In 2009, a French court found Monsanto guilty of lying; falsely advertising its Roundup herbicide as "biodegradable," "environmentally friendly" and claiming it "left the soil clean."
We're now starting to understand just how false such statements are. For example, last summer, a groundbreaking study revealed a previously unknown mechanism of harm from glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. 

The research showed that glyphosate residues, found in most processed foods in the Western diet courtesy of GE sugar beets, corn, and soy, "enhance the damaging effects of other food-borne chemical residues and toxins in the environment to disrupt normal body functions and induce disease."'

'Millions of asymptomatic women undergo breast screening annually because their doctors tell them to do so. Not only are these women's presumably healthy breasts being exposed to highly carcinogenic x-rays, but thousands have received a diagnosis of 'breast cancer' for entirely benign lesions that when left untreated would have caused no harm to them whatsoever.

New Study: 80% of early-stage breast cancers do not progress to more concerning forms (invasive breast cancer) even after 20 years.'

Coriolus Versicolor is Potent Cancer Fighting Mushroom

coriolus


'For thousands of years Chinese medicine has prized mushrooms for their energizing and healing properties. Chinese legend is filled with stories about people who discovered a 1,000 year old mushroom and became immortal. In the West, acceptance is based less on tradition and more on the results of the scientific method.

Researchers have been busy documenting what Chinese tradition has always dictated, that mushrooms are some of the most potent medicines on the planet. In particular, they have shown that the Coriolus versicolor is a potent cancer fighting mushroom that stands out above the rest for its ability to regulate the immune system and end cancer.'

'Seldom will you find a pharmacy dispensing recommendations on meditation, although it is regular part of my counseling practice. I firmly believe that if we as a society become more mindful, we will not only reduce stress and chaos in our lives, we will make a tremendous impact on our health, reducing the need for medications.

Meditation is one of the most powerful tools for your health and wellbeing. Meditation is easy, free, feels great, comes with no drug interactions, has shown profound success in preventative medicine, as well as a perfect complement to any course of medical therapy.'

Why Doctors and Patients Have Different Priorities

'Traditional doctors love algorithms. 

Patients X, Y, and Z have A, B, and C diseases. Patient X has disease B, which has an ICD9 (soon to become ICD10) diagnostic code. ICD codes (International Statistical Classifications of Diseases) are alphanumeric codes given to every diagnosis, description of symptoms and cause of death attributed to human beings. 

Just as lab test numbers are not the human patients, however, codes are not diseases. They are simply part of a system that makes it easier for doctors, hospitals, and health insurance companies to keep track of what’s going on with patients.'

‘Questions continue to arise about cell phones and their contribution to certain cancers. Even the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has raised some concern about extensive cell phone use. The NCI explains that cell phones emit radio frequency energy in the form of non-ionizing radiation. 

In other words, a cell phone basically lets off radio waves which are absorbed by the nearest tissues of the body. If a person carries a phone in their pocket all day long, energy can be absorbed into the person’s side and midsection.

How does this energy affect the cells over time?’

Scientists Finally Explain How Acupuncture Works… And It’s Related To Marijuana

Electroacupuncture  is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. It is particularly good for treating pain.

'Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years and so has medical marijuana. But the two haven’t been connected until now, thanks to a group of outside-the-box thinkers at a university in China.

Their findings, published online by the National Institutes of Health, show how electroacupuncture – an electrified version of traditional acupuncture used to treat pain – works by increasing activity of natural painkillers in the body called cannabinoids.'

The Germanic/German New Medicine - Hope For Cancer Patients




'My journey into the German New Medicine began in 1992, when a friend of mine gave me some tapes to evaluate. They ended up in my car on a pile of other tapes I had been asked to listen to and a year later, my friend asked me if I had ever listened to them. To be honest, I couldn’t even remember getting them from her. So that evening, on my way home, I finally played them. 

 It was a life altering moment for me. What I heard was earth shattering. It was revolutionary and changed everything I believed. For a moment I felt threatened. At the same time, it was the most astounding and wonderful thing I had ever heard. It helped me to put everything I knew about holistic medicine into total perspective. It answered all my questions about disease - how it starts - progresses - it explained the so-called spontaneous healing of cancer.'

‘What happens when the ‘Average Joe’ gets caught committing a crime? He or she usually gets the book thrown at them, most often spending time in the slammer. However, what happens when “corporations too big to fail” get caught with “their hands in the cookie jar,” so to speak? 

Not very many folks pay the time, but the corporate treasury pays the fine. Why? Apparently, large sums of money can “absolve corporate sins” time after time after time. One industry that has had enormous fines levied against it is the pharmaceutical industry, also known as Big Pharma.’
