'Cutting edge science now points to this common spice as a possible 'curative agent' for Alzheimer's. Considering the well-known harms and lack of effectiveness associated with pharmaceutical agents for this condition, this research promises a new therapeutic path for this so-called 'incurable' disease.

A new study published in the Indian Journal of Experimental Biology suggests that ginger may be an excellent natural anti-Alzheimer's (AD) treatment.

Indian researchers at the Department of Neurochemistry, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, report that ginger may provide "multiple therapeutic molecular targets of AD and can be considered as an effective nontoxic neutraceutical supplement for AD."'

 It’s Worse Than You Know

'In a May, 2014 letter to the U.S. Senate, Doctor Jay S. Cohen said of fluoroquinolones, “In my 40+ years in pharmacovigilance, FQs (fluoroquinolones) surpass Vioxx and Thalidomide in the degree of permanent harm done.”  Let that sink in for a bit.

Fluoroquinolones – cipro/ciprofloxacin, levaquin/levofloxacin, avelox/moxifloxacin and floxin/ofloxacin – drugs that are seen as simple antibiotics (though they do severe cellular harm and are more appropriate for use as chemotherapy drugs), that are prescribed more than 20 million times per year in the U.S. alone – are doing more harm than Vioxx – a drug that led to more than 140,000 American heart attacks, and Thalidomide – a drug that has caused birth-defects and deaths of thousands of children world-wide.'

How to Buy Organic Eggs: Pastured vs. Free Range Eggs

How to Buy Organic Eggs: Pastured vs. Free Range Eggs


Why Pastured Eggs?

'I don’t just buy any eggs. I only buy pastured eggs from local farmers who keep their chickens outdoors and let them roam around in the sun, eating bugs. I also only buy eggs from farmers who do not feed their chickens soy.

For years, I bought organic free range eggs. From what I had read, organic free range eggs were the best.

I knew supermarket eggs were bad. The chickens are crowded in cages. They don’t even have room to move or turn around. They’re pumped with antibiotics and fed genetically modified feed. They’re sick and very unhealthy — which is why it’s so common to find salmonella with factory farm chickens and eggs.'

Studies show that compounds in sauerkraut may help prevent cancer, boost immunity, and more.

'A one-cup serving of sauerkraut provides about a quarter of our daily value for vitamin K, 35 percent of our vitamin C, 12 percent of iron, four grams of fiber and only 32 calories—all more bioavailable because of the fermentation process.

But beyond its basic nutrient profile—which is a great one—sauerkraut has emerged as an important super food that provides a number of potential health benefits. Here are five of them.'

'Undoubtedly, Starbucks is a coffee Kingpin, which boasts the largest coffeehouse chain in the world, with 23,187 stores in 64 countries, and annual sales of $14.9 billion, while CEO Howard Schultz is worth a whooping $1.6 billion.

Although statistically impressive at first glance, an important question remains: are Starbucks food and beverage offerings high quality and healthy?'

Ovarian Cancer: What We Think We Know May Harm Us




'In other words, being diagnosed and being treated for ovarian cancer is not the same as actually having it. The ovarian cancer statistics, however, do not take this into account, making the problem of 'ovarian cancer' look much larger than the problem of medical iatrogenesis itself. 

The fear created by this disingenuous representation of the problem, further amplifies the fear that drives even more presumably healthy women into overdiagnosis and overtreatment, feeding this vicious cycle – a cycle occurring on an epidemic scale with other screen-detected 'cancers,' such as breast, prostate, lung and thyroid.'

Phytoestrogens in soy-based formulas are known to carry greater risks than benefits for infants. Babies fed soy-based formula had 13,000 to 22,0000 times more isoflavones in their blood than babies fed milk-based formula.

New data published in PLoS One shows that consumption of soy formula may also be associated with a higher rate of seizures in children.

How To Do A Liver Detox & Blood Cleanse

'By cleansing the liver, we're talking about inducing the liver to purge all of the fats, old cholesterol deposits, gallstones, poisons, drug residues, and toxic waste stored therein. Probably nothing else you do (including even the colon detox) will make a greater difference in your overall health. 

The liver is so important to our well-being that many healers maintain that most diseases cannot develop in the body (that, in fact, no form of cell degeneration can occur) if the liver is functioning in an efficient, healthy manner. Conversely, an unhealthy liver is very likely at the root of most serious health problems.'

Weight Loss Supplements—Are They Worth the Cost and Potential Risks?

'What is often left out of the conversation is that the vast majority of complaints and/or hazards associated with supplements are limited to a narrow range of products, primarily in the categories of weight loss, muscle-building, high energy products, and some sexual enhancement products.

Supplements that end up being deemed hazardous are also typically "spiked" with some form of pharmaceutical drug or synthetic ingredient, as was the case above. With very few exceptions, it's not the natural vitamin or herb in itself that is shown to be dangerous.'


'My personal stance is that weight loss supplements are incongruous with a healthy lifestyle.'

Imagination – Access to the Infinite



‘It’s amazing how our imagination has been minimalized into an idea implying almost random superficial options when it contains the secrets of the Universe. What we appear to imagine is what makes our world the reality it is. It’s not “apart” from anything as they would have us to think. It’s our innate life force at work.

That’s why it’s quenched and severely channeled into other influences’ conceptual constructs to suppress our own realizations that might contradict the social narrative, which they know it is, as long as they define it, and hence they utilize it accordingly.’

‘There are few professions more disingenuous than modern psychiatry, an inherently corrupt medical paradigm that interprets human behavioral variances through the lens of made-up “mental disorders,” nearly all of which demand expensive pharmaceutical drug interventions.

And new evidence supporting the notion that modern psychiatry is a complete fraud has been uncovered in the form of an email sent by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and a letter sent by Health Canada, the Canadian equivalent of the FDA.’

ED. NOTE: An excellent example of why I use the term "medical mafia".

'I post this piece now and then to show how personal things can get inside a terminally corrupt government agency.

It’s not all about remote decisions made from a great height.
These decisions can come about through the rank intimidation the Mafia exercises with a member who wants to leave the mob and go straight.

As in: “We know where your wife and kids are.”

This article is based on a Truthout interview of a man who did drug reviews for the FDA. He examined applications to approve new medical drugs for public consumption.'

7 Things That Can Drain Your Brain

'The human brain-over 4 million years in the making, and a marvel of evolution. Compared to body-size, we have the largest brain on the planet, by almost double. We also have the most complex brain, capable of over 100 million MIPS (Million Computer Instructions Per Second)1. That’s the equivalent of a 1,618,000 Mhz Pentium processor, or 10,000 super computers. 

Our brains are the third largest organs in our bodies (right after the skin and the liver…), and the hungriest. Although our brains only make up about 2% of our weight, they consume 25% of the nutrients and oxygen, and a whopping 70% of all the glucose. The brain controls thousands of operations per second, and it does it without any conscious input from us, so we never need to worry about forgetting to breathe, or make our heart beat.'

How drawing, music and photography have helped me, a non-artist, deal with chronic pain

CHRONIC PAIN MANDALA


'Six years ago if you had told me that drawing or music could assist me in dealing with my pain I would have said, “no way, I am not an artist and I need medical treatment not art or music”. Interestingly as the years passed and my pain and disability increased, I opened up to the idea of utilizing the Arts to help me deal with the pain. I realized that the Arts can be an excellent form of distraction from pain and, on a deeper level, a way to explore and express my feelings about living with chronic pain.'

'Did you know that DNA can be damaged…and repaired?

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the hereditary material found in humans, animals, and organisms. DNA is in every cell in our bodies. Each cell’s nucleus has DNA, which is rolled into structures that are our chromosomes (23 pairs).

“Most genes contain the information needed to make functional molecules called proteins. (A few genes produce other molecules that help the cell assemble proteins.) The journey from gene to protein is complex and tightly controlled within each cell. It consists of two major steps: transcription and translation. Together, transcription and translation are known as gene expression.'

Healing Infections Without Antibiotics

'We bet there are many of you reading this article who think nothing of taking Vitamin C and lots of liquids for a cold or using Aloe Vera gel for a burn. But, how many of you think about using natural treatments for bladder or vaginal infections, for a strep throat, or for more serious infections such as hepatitis or pneumonia?

Most of the time the proper use of natural substances such as vitamins and herbs and homeopathic remedies will help you get over these conditions.

But it’s important to know what works best for each condition, evaluate whether or not it’s working, and to assess the consequences of unsuccessful treatment. In the case of hepatitis, for example, orthodox medicine has no real treatment, so you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. (We’ve seen Hepatitis A cases respond within a week to a combination of nutrititional supplements, herbal liver support, and homeopathy.)'

Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is a very common problem, and there are many reasons for this, including drinking chlorinated and fluoridated water, and eating brominated flour.

Chlorine, fluoride, and bromine are all in the same family as iodine, and can displace iodine in your thyroid gland.'
