Eating fat really doesn’t make you fat

'Does eating fat really make you fat? Store shelves are still loaded with low-fat and-fat free products, so apparently many people are on board with this idea. But recent evidence is showing that we’ve been told a big fat lie, and eating fat does not cause weight gain or disease, anymore than eating chicken can turn you into a bird.'


A Most Unusual Healer Who Was Acquitted of the “Crime” of Healing

'Most of us know that healing outside of the medical monopoly is a crime, even as that monopoly rarely does heal. And just about any indigenous herbal approach to healing is considered quackery, fraudulent, or worse by by modern mainstream medical professionals.

It’s amazing that one such character was once accused of medical fraud and acquitted by a jury in a Brooklyn, NY court during the late 1980s. That character was a black man from Spanish Honduras in Central America who was advertising he could cure AIDS in Manhattan’s Village Voice. His name was Dr. Sebi.'


How to Make Your own Lacto-Fermented Salsa

'Salsa is widely loved for its ability to spice up – or simply add flavor to – any dish, Mexican-themed or not. Unfortunately, it is hard to find good salsa in regular markets. With the high pesticide content of peppers, tomatoes, and onions along with the genetic modification of tomatoes, what was once a healthful addition to the meal has now become a big question mark on the table.

To really get the most bang for your buck, making homemade salsa from ingredients you know and trust is always your best bet.'


Got a Smart Meter? New Device Blocks 98% of Radiation


'Smart meters are being used by the majority of utility companies today, and while a convenient cost cutting measure for them, they are a concentrated source of electromagnetic radiation (EMF) for consumers. Smart meter radiation is of a similar frequency to WiFi, cordless phones and cell phones.

However, while of a similar frequency to these other devices, smart meters transmit at much higher power and concentration so much so that consumers are starting to note chronic health effects from having them installed such as frequent headaches, inability to concentrate, lack of quality sleep, anxiety and more.'

'​Many people believe myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is the result of heredity. Others point to long hours spent reading as the culprit, but are these theories right? The latest crop of scientists says probably not, because they don’t pass the critical eye of common sense. 

For them myopia appears to be the result of lifestyle choices, or at least one lifestyle choice in particular. The hope is that by committing to certain changes, our children will end up with 20/20 vision, even if we can’t see our hands in front of our faces without glasses.'


Thunder God Vines Testimonial Video

'A Chinese herb that has been used to ease rheumatoid arthritis for over 400 years has proved to be more effective than prescribed Western drugs. In ancient times, practitioners gathered its roots in the summer or early fall. 

Only the inner portion of the root was utilized. In past centuries, the root was ground into powder and applied on the skin. The herb was given its name in honor of the God of Thunder, who was seen as powerful and ferocious. Presumably, the effects of the herb were associated with the power of the famous God in Chinese ancient mythology.'

'Coconut oil for Alzheimer’s? Naturopaths and other natural health authorities have been telling us for years that coconut oil can not only slow Alzheimer’s, it can also stop it and even reverse it. Now, recent science and real life experiences have confirmed what they have told us. With organic coconut oil, you can forget Alzheimer’s, it’s no longer a death sentence!

Alzheimer’s and dementia have been growing at alarming rates thanks to our aging population, widespread use of statin drugs, low fat diets, and the continued inundation of toxins in our food, air and water. It is estimated that the current figure of 5 million plus people with Alzheimer’s in the U.S. will triple by 2050.'

'When the body comes into harmony, it's more than just symptom relief, it's an opportunity to come into yourself and ascend that ladder.

I used to be an atheist, in fact, I used to be a self-described "belligerent atheist". I thought that religious dogma was the outgrowth of fear and unresolved parental issues. Certainly, much modern religion has lost touch with its more mystical roots, but there is no question that what ails the average American, as Graham Hancock quotes, is a disconnection from Spirit.'


Health Benefits of Oregano Essential Oil


'The health benefits of Oregano Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive, emenagogue and anti-allergenic substance.

The disinfectant and antibacterial properties of oregano essential oil were first recognized in ancient Greece where they were often used for treating bacterial infections on the skin or in wounds, and it was also employed to protect food from bacteria. It is a plant native to higher altitudes and normally grows in the mountains, which is how it got the name “Oregano”, which means “Delight of the Mountains.” '

'If you or someone you know has rheumatoid arthritis (RA), you'll want to watch this video. In it, Sarah Allen, who is a former patient of mine, shares how she put rheumatoid arthritis into remission, and it's a remarkable success story.

Rheumatoid arthritis was a passion of mine while I was still in active practice. I treated over 3,000 patients with this disease. I estimate 80 to 85 percent of them experienced significant recovery, if not remission, like Sarah did.

I ran into Sarah after giving a presentation recently in Orlando, where she happened to be in attendance. After talking to her, I decided we needed to share her important story as it would provide hope for so many who struggle with this disease.'


Music More Effective Than Drugs At Releasing Brain's Painkillers

'400 published scientific papers have proven the old adage that "music is medicine." Neurochemical benefits of music can improve the body's immune system, reduce anxiety levels and help regulate mood in ways that drugs have difficulty competing.

"We've found compelling evidence that musical interventions can play a health care role in settings ranging from operating rooms to family clinics," says Prof. Levitin of McGill University's Psychology Department. "But even more importantly, we were able to document the neurochemical mechanisms by which music has an effect in four domains: management of mood, stress, immunity and as an aid to social bonding."'

'A new study finds acid blocking drugs may calm heartburn at the price of a heart attack - or even death.

The burning pain of acid reflux can be unbearable. Most doctors offer a quick-fix in the form of drugs like Prevacid, Nexium, or Prilosec. But a new study finds those drugs may calm heartburn at the price of a heart attack.

Researchers from Stanford University showed that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are linked to higher risks of myocardial infarction and death – even among people without heart disease.'

'The labels on retail Roundup containers state in large letters, "Did You Know? Glyphosate targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals."

The reality is quite different of course, and plaintiff attorney T. Matthew Phillips for the truth in advertising lawsuit against Monsanto has the science behind him. Roundup targets the enzyme EPSP synthase, and it is in animals and humans.'

'Here's a sweet notion: Eat a little chocolate each day and you could be doing your heart a favor.

A new study published in the journal Heart found that habitual chocolate eaters had a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes compared to people who didn't eat chocolate.

So, what is it about chocolate that could possibly lead to such a benefit? Well, when you strip out the sugar and milk that's added to chocolate, you're left with the cocoa bean. And it's the compounds in the cocoa that researchers are most interested in.'

'I am now at one year of cold showers. I celebrated with some champagne in a cold shower this morning (ok, not true, but I enjoyed how it sounded when I read it aloud). I never thought I’d be one to take cold showers, at least not for one year straight. I was always one that hated the cold. 

I like the blazing hot summer. I hate cold offices. I hate cold oceans (sorry Los Angeles, even in the summer you're too cold for me). And I hate cold weather. But things changed about a year ago and the unexpected benefits have been not only surprising, but awesome.'


The Illusion of Choices in Choosing a Restaurant – Toxic Factory Food from a Handful of Suppliers

'There are dozens of chain restaurants from which we can choose when we go out to eat. Some are fast-food eateries with counters for ordering, and others are traditional sit-down table service restaurants. Probably McDonalds is the most well-known fast-food chain, but dozens of other chains dot the landscape of towns and cities throughout America.

As of 2012, there were 263,944 fast food restaurants in America with a combined revenue of well over $100 billion. [1]


It might appear that we have dozens of choices, but this is actually an illusion. The difference between one fast-food restaurant and the next is negligible when considering the high levels of toxic ingredients that are in the food.'

Attacking Ourselves: Top Doctors Reveal Vaccines Turn Our Immune System Against Us

The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk?

'No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty; he wrote the textbooks. 

The Mosaic of AutoimmunityAutoantibodiesDiagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity – the list is 25 titles long and some of them are cornerstones of clinical practice. Hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the "Godfather of Autoimmunology" – the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis.'
