'A Greenpeace report has found that several major sportswear brands—including Adidas, Nike, and Puma—contain polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), and phthalates. All of these chemicals are linked to major health issues. 

PFCs, which make items stain-proof, are linked to problems like low birth weight and prostate cancer; phthalates are linked to attention deficit disorder, asthma, breast cancer, obesity, and behavioral and neurodevelopmental issues; and NPEs degrade into hormone-disrupting chemicals.'

'A new study reveals ginger contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy. 

A new study published in PLoS reveals a pungent component within ginger known as 6-shogaol is superior to conventional chemotherapy in targeting the root cause of breast cancer malignancy: namely, the breast cancer stem cells.'


Healing from Vaccine Injuries through Homeopathy

'There are treatments that can heal vaccine damage, but few physicians in the conventional medical care system know about them, since vaccine injuries are usually denied as the cause of any illness. Some parents with autistic children report that homeopathy has completely reversed their children’s autism and healed other serious health conditions caused by vaccines. This article explains how homeopathic remedies can bring about healing for many types of vaccine injuries.

The National Vaccine Information Center states a very sobering fact about vaccines:

“Every vaccine recommended for use by government and doctors has been associated with hospitalizations, injuries and deaths. There is no guarantee that a particular vaccine will be safe to give to a particular individual and will not result in permanent injury or death.”'


Study of Preterm Infants Confirms Benefits of Coconut Oil for Skin -

'A recent study in India was devised to give scientific authenticity for a traditional Indian practice of massaging newborns’ skin with coconut oil. The study was published by the Journal of Tropical Pediatrics, in September 2015 as “Topical Oil Application and Trans-Epidermal Water Loss in Preterm Very Low Birth Weight Infants-A Randomized Trial.”

The researchers’ objective was to determine coconut oil’s protection against trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). There have been many attempts at resolving preterm and term birth water loss among newborns that are more along the technical lines of Western medicine’s hospital hardware.

This was the first study that focused on the traditional Indian method of massaging the infants with coconut oil.'

Why You Should Never Make Your Bed

'Your mother always told you to make your bed. Every single morning after you’d rise, groggy and miserable, you’d get the inevitable question: “Did you make your bed?” Well, guess what? It turns out mom was wrong — it’s actually better for you, and for your overall health, not to make your bed at all.

Why? Because of these.'


“Forgiveness is the most powerful thing that you can do for your physiology and your spirituality. Yet, it remains one of the least attractive things to us, largely because our egos rule so unequivocally.

To forgive is somehow associated with saying that it is all right, that we accept the evil deed. But this is not forgiveness. Forgiveness means that you fill yourself with love and you radiate that love outward and refuse to hang onto the venom or hatred that was engendered by the behaviors that caused the wounds.” ~Wayne Dyer


by Dr. Ben Kim~

Back when I ran a fasting clinic and was in an ideal setting to listen - to REALLY listen - for as long as a guest had thoughts to formulate and share,
I distinctly remember the visceral experience of knowing that learning to truly forgive oneself was the most essential requirement for healing.
I can't count the number of people I have worked with over the years who have struggled with a chronic health challenge despite dietary and lifestyle choices that were pristine. In many of these cases, I've found that the missing ingredient for lasting health improvement is insufficient compassion for oneself.
When you have some time alone, I would encourage you to find a comfortable place to sit with a mirror. Do what you can to avoid potential distractions like an incoming text or phone call, and gaze into your eyes.
Have a good long look at your face and allow yourself to connect with how you feel about yourself.
Few of us make time to nurture our own spirit with love, understanding, and forgiveness that are often relatively easy to gift to others.
As you look upon yourself and allow your feelings about your existence to float into your consciousness, if you are not filled with respect, gratitude, and love, consider giving yourself the love, understanding, and forgiveness that Maya Angelou wrote about:
"It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes - it is inevitable.
"But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'Well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all.
"So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.'
"If we all hold on to the mistake, we can't see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can't see what we're capable of being.
"You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self."
- Dr. Maya Angelou (April 1928 – May 2014)
I have known people who have not been able to speak lovingly to themselves in the mirror. I've witnessed a number of people break down in trying this exercise, overwhelmed with feelings of being insufficient and unworthy.
I have also observed some of these people work to forgive and better nurture themselves emotionally, and to experience near immediate improvement with their health.
Once you have made progress in the journey of forgiving yourself, you will be far more capable of truly forgiving those who have hurt
If you are struggling with chronic anger or hurt and don't feel capable of forgiving, please feel free to view the following pages:

Sound Healing

'From the point of all mystics, the original state of the whole creation is vibration. Vibration manifests in two forms, or stages. In its original condition vibration is inaudible and invisible, but in its first stage towards manifestation it becomes audible, and its next step is visible.

We are constantly being vibrated, on a cellular level, by heard and unheard sound frequencies. Sound vibrations have a tremendous influence over human functionality as sound touches and influences our emotions like no other source of input or expression. 

If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through our bones and our skin, basically through every cell in our bodies. Sound & music are nutrients for the nervous system. The auditory mechanism is a mega-portal to the brain and sonic tools empower health, learning and productivity.'

'New research suggests that vitamin C may give you some of the same heart benefits as regular exercise.

A study from the University of Colorado, Boulder examined the effects of vitamin C supplements on overweight and obese adults. This group of people is often advised to exercise to improve their heart health but more than 50% ignore the advice.

In a presentation at the 14th International Conference on Endothelin: Physiology, Pathophysiology and Therapeutics, the Colorado researchers revealed that taking a 500 mg time-released vitamin C supplement every day can have similar cardiovascular benefits as regular exercise in these adults.'


Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. – Scientifically No Polio Vaccine was Needed -

"I remember the hysteria generated in the media by polio, the well-funded advertising campaigns by organizations such as the March of Dimes, relying on, of course, emotional arguments to raise money from “regular” moms and dads and Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops all over the country.

My childhood vision of polio was that of a true catastrophe, threatening the entire population of the United States, with our only hope the dedication and hard work of our wonderful research scientists who were extolled in the press on a near daily basis.

As a fledging research immunologist under Dr. Good somewhat fascinated by DuBos’ perspective, I began to investigate the actual epidemiology and ecology of polio. As I was to learn it turned out that polio “epidemics” as they were called, didn’t really emerge until the late 19th, and early 20th century. 

I had been taught in medical school that the epidemic nature of polio showed itself because of growing population density in urban areas associated with poor sanitation. Though this position seemed logical, since polio transmits through a fecal oral route, the opposite has proven to be the case."

Two simple compounds can give you a younger brain


'Would you like to have a younger brain with the brainpower you had 10, 20 or even 40 years ago? Research says it’s quite possible that a combo of acetyl L-caritine and lipoic acid can restore cognitive ability to what it was in your prime.

It all started with a landmark study back in 2008. Study director Bruce Ames found that old lab rats given a combination of acetyl L-carnitine and alpha-lipoic acid regained so much of their youth and vigor they “got up to do the Macarena”. Since then other research has confirmed Ames’ findings and found even more ways in which these two compounds can turn back the clock.'


Living with the Seasons – Autumn / Fall

'Autumn is the season where the hot summer days gradually become shorter, and the leaves begin to change, presenting us with their beautiful colours before they fall off the trees to prepare for the coming winter. There is a cold in the air that signals us to start putting away our summer clothes and get out warmer clothing for the coming cold weather. 


It is the time of year that we go from the relaxed and carefree attitudes of summer to the more serious and introspective energies associated with autumn.'


Reduce Inflammation Naturally with Nature’s Pac Man

'Have you ever had a sore throat, been stung by a bee, or twisted your ankle?

Do you have arthritis, back pain or headaches?

Whenever you are in pain, even post-surgical pain, your body makes compounds in response to the injury which cause temporary redness, heat, swelling, and pain. 

Then naturally produced enzymes in your body eat up these inflammatory compounds, and that is when you notice the swelling goes down, the pain is relieved and the redness or stiffness recedes.'

'Laura Ingalls Wilder – wrote her first book when she was 65. She was depleted of resources by the great depression and friends encouraged her to write down her experiences and stories. That first book led to many others and would turn into the popular TV series, “Little House on the Prairie.”

Sister Marion Irvine – started running at age 47, when she was overweight and smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. She went on to qualify for the Olympic marathon trials at age 54.'

Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses – began painting at 76, after arthritis forced her to give up embroidery. She continued painting until  the age of 101 – long enough to see the canvases she had sold for $3 fetch prices north of $10,000.
