“About 4 months ago I decided to go gluten free and gave up all forms of bread. I’ve lost about 6 pounds, feel better and save money. The only grain I eat, about twice a week, is Bob’s Red Mill Quick Cooking gluten free oats. I stir a number of healthy things into it like coconut oil, cinnamon, chia seeds, bee pollen granules, protein powder, fruit (banana or strawberries) and a pinch or two of stevia, very delicious and filling.”  Admin It’s truly amazing how many health problems are caused by gluten, specifically wheat. Much of the time, the person [More]
“So it appears the panel and all it’s witnesses were GMO advocates and no dissenting opinions were heard, how nice. Let’s just ignore the evidence for GMO dangers and force them on everyone appears to be the prevailing attitude.”  Admin It’s pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they’ve called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee this week. The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they’re often known in the [More]
Five years ago, if someone were to mention the use of oregano essential for health and wellness purposes I would have looked at them cross-eyed.  Although well versed in the benefits of essential oils, for one reason or another, oregano essential oil was nowhere to be found on my radar screen.  Oregano for wellness? Although I grow it in my yard and use it in pasta dishes and on pizza, I had never considered it to have healing qualities. Moving forward in time, as I began to toss out conventional over-the-counter remedies, I discovered that Oregano essential oil has some amazing [More]
The beauty industry has big marketing budgets. They’ve spent fortunes trying to convince women that injections, chemical peels or $300 creams and serums will smooth wrinkles and restore youthful skin. But harsh treatments and chemicals can actually make things worse. The beauty industry focuses almost exclusively on external issues. But skin reflects the health of your entire body from the inside out. It tells the story of chronic stress, the toxins in your food, chemicals in your environment, and lifestyle choices. There is no magic bullet to repair the skin from all that. But there are natural alternatives for slowing [More]
In the first study of its kind, this common herb was found to have remarkable healing results for common warts and corns. A clinical study published in the International Journal of Dermatology, titled “Healing effect of garlic extract on warts and corns,” reveals the amazing healing properties of garlic extract in healing common warts and corns. Warts are caused by the virus human papilloma virus (HPV), and corns by pressure of friction. They are some of the most common conditions found in dermatological practice today. In the new study, peeled garlic was processed to produce either a water or fat [More]
One of the biggest myths about health and nutrition is the one which would have us believe that we can get all the nutrition we need by simply eating a balanced diet. The truth is that it is next to impossible to get even the minimal RDA amounts of the limited number of vitamins and minerals on the RDA list from diet alone, much less the optimal amounts of all the many nutrients needed for optimal health. Decades of over-farming has left the world’s top soils severely depleted of essential minerals. For the most part, the only minerals replaced have [More]
“Oh well, another attempt by big medicine to demonize supplements with a flawed and basically worthless study as you’ll read. I personally have taken supplements for years and consider them one of the best forms of health insurance you can get, along with a healthy diet. Just make sure they are quality supplements.”  Admin The mainstream media is awash and abuzz with news about a new study which purports to show that taking vitamins, minerals and other supplements can be dangerous. However, even a perfunctory look at the study reveals it to a seriously flawed study using junk science. The [More]
On Monday, Quartz published an article by Devin Cohen titled, There is a Secret Ingredient in Your Burgers: Wood Pulp. Given the headline and people’s already present suspicion regarding all of the shady and potentially dangerous ingredients hidden in food items, the article gained a lot of traction. In subsequent days, most journalists and bloggers have focused on the dangers of this additive (unclear) and whether or not it is pervasive throughout the food chain as opposed to just fast food (it appears to be). The one angle that has not been explored as much is the overall trend. Let’s [More]
“Some good links at the end of the article.” Admin Historically, the European Union (EU) has taken a far stricter, more cautious stance with regards to genetically engineered (GE) crops and foods. Not only must GE foods be labeled in the EU, but resistance to growing GE crops is high in general. As reported two years ago, an estimated 75 percent of Germans oppose GE, and few politicians are in favor of genetic technology. Over there, it’s actually politically risky to support GMOs. This is something the chemical technology industry, through the shrewd manipulation of the US government, has fought [More]
While a growing body of research now suggests that x-ray mammography is causing more harm than good in the millions of women who subject themselves to breast screenings, annually, without knowledge of their true health risks, the primary focus has been on the harms associated with over-diagnosis and over-treatment, and not the radiobiological dangers of the procedure itself. In 2006, a paper published in the British Journal of Radiobiology, titled “Enhanced biological effectiveness of low energy X-rays and implications for the UK breast screening programme,” revealed the type of radiation used in x-ray-based breast screenings is much more carcinogenic than [More]

Leading immunologists at International Congress on Autoimmunity link aluminum in vaccines to a new post-vaccine syndrome While “anti-vaxxers” are being smeared in public campaigns as backward and unscientific fear-mongers, a growing body of cutting edge research is emerging from the top echelons of medical immunology to confirm what the cranks have been saying for years about the devastating effects of vaccine ingredients. The biggest names in the field of study of the human immune system are attached to current papers in the most prestigious immunology literature that link widely used vaccine ingredients such as aluminum to terrifying modern epidemics of [More]
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.”~Proverbs 17:22 It saddens me to see older women diagnosed with “osteopenia” or “osteoporosis” listening to their doctors and taking supplemental calcium and even problematic drugs called bisphosphonates. These are irrational, dogmatic, harmful approaches to the problem of degrading bone as we age. In my time practicing nephrology and internal medicine, I saw numerous patients suffering from vascular disease while taking the recommended doses of calcium. X-rays revealed perfect outlines of calcified blood vessels and calcified heart valves. Osteoporisis Is Scurvy of the Bone, Not Calcium Deficiency [More]
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 nutraceutical supplement [More]

It is beneficial for your health to limit the amount of exposure of toxic chemicals to the skin. 2.) It is also beneficial to the environment as less toxins will be going down the drains. 3.) You will be producing less waste from bottles and other packages. 4.) Over time, if enough people started doing this it could help put an end to animal testing. 5.) Making your own [More]
We’ve known for decades that cardiovascular disease is notably lower in southern Europe especially compared to the U.S. The Mediterranean diet, consisting of more fruits, vegetables, and olive oil, usually gets the credit. It’s been shown to reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes in patients with high cardiovascular risk. Now researchers have identified a key nutrient in the Mediterranean diet that deserves special mention. They found that lycopene, a carotenoid found abundantly in tomatoes, helps reduce cardiovascular disease risk. Lycopene gives tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables a distinctive red color. It’s a powerful antioxidant and 10 times [More]
Do you have childhood memories of playing outside during the summer and taking cool drinks of water from the garden hose? Many people do, and most parents probably think nothing of it, but it’s vitally important that you avoid drinking out of the hose. In fact, if you look closely, you’ll see a warning label on most garden hoses warning you against just that. The reason? Being that garden hoses are not intended for drinking water, there are no regulations about what kinds of chemicals can be in them. And as you might suspect, most garden hoses are far from [More]

A complex process, involving autoimmunity, infection, dietary incompatibilities, and many known and unknown factors, it is – despite conventional medical opinion – entirely preventable, and in some cases reversible.Here is the peer-reviewed, published research proving the fact: Read More  7 Simple Ways to Unclog Your Arteries Naturally | GreenMedInfo | [More]
There are over 61.5 million children under the age of 14 in the US,1 and for American businesses, these kids represent one of the most powerful demographics to be captured. Not only do these children spend $40 billion a year on snacks, toys, and electronics, using money given to them by their parents or family members, they also exert a powerful influence on their parents’ spending. As noted in the documentary film Consuming Kids, children under 12 influence adult spending worth a staggering $700 billion a year, which equates to the combined economy of 115 of the world’s poorest countries.

Recently, one of my good friends shared with me her story of how she cured her eczema naturally using apple cider vinegar (ACV). Since she was a young girl, her skin would break out in painful, itchy rashes which she would treat with doctor-prescribed and recommended steroid creams. However, these creams had a detrimental effect on her skin over time, and eventually she had to stop using them, being left to deal with the extremely uncomfortable disease. Her quality of life was almost always compromised, admitting to me that she found it difficult being present while living with the ailment. [More]

“Just another big reason to stay away from dangerous and ineffective flu vaccines”  Admin Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX). Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1) The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the [More]
Most Americans eat a diet that consists of little to no protein for breakfast, a bit of protein at lunch and an overabundance of protein at dinner. As long as they get their recommended dietary allowance of about 60 grams, it’s all good, right? Not according to new research from a team of scientists led by muscle metabolism expert Doug Paddon-Jones of the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. This research shows that the typical cereal or carbohydrate-dominated breakfast, a sandwich or salad at lunch and overly large serving of meat/protein for dinner may not provide the best metabolic [More]
“As you’ll read the GM seed companies seem to go out of their way to make it difficult or impossible for independent researchers to evaluate their foods, if they are as safe as these companies say they are then why do they try to hinder independent research? I think we know the answer to that.”  Admin If you’re like me, you’ve probably been asked by many of your friends and relatives why you believe genetically engineered (GE) foods are unsafe. Dr. Judy Carman, one of the few researchers in the world who has carefully and independently evaluated this question, can [More]
If you ask just about anyone what their main fitness goals are, flat, toned and defined abdominals is usually at the top of their list. However, from a fitness standpoint, the aspiration for the “perfect set of abs” should be balanced with the type of training that will best enhance the overall strength of the entire core’s function. “Rock-Hard Abs” is about Far More than Aesthetics Your first inclination may be to think that doing a lot of sit ups will develop the type of abs you see in fitness magazines. But know this: No matter how many “crunches” you [More]
“Another article showing the importance of eating organic to achieve optimal health and wellness.”  Admin I constantly come across individuals not knowing the difference between organic food and food that’s riddled with pesticides, which is why awareness is so important. A recent study conducted by researchers from RMIT university, published in the journal Environmental Research found that an organic diet for just one week significantly reduced pesticide (commonly used in conventional food production) exposure in adults. (1) Thirteen participants were randomly selected to consume a diet consisting of at least 80% organic or conventional food for precisely 7 days, afterwards [More]
When we’re down and out with a bad cold or flu, many of us reach for hot soups and warm liquids to soothe the pain, however there is no evidence that the temperature of a beverage or food will influence our ability to heal. Some people outright avoid hot soups and prefer refrigerated food products despite the mainstream opinion that it will somehow make us feel worse. For many it does and for others there is absolutely no difference. For those who prefer a chilled soother rather than a warm one for your sniffles, this recipe is for you. Jeni [More]
