More than two-thousand years ago Hippocrates was the first physician to issue a word of caution about the over-use of medicines. Hippocrates invoked an oath to “first do no harm” before doctors reach for the latest nostrum.
In 1976 Austrian philosopher and Catholic priest Ivan Illich, in his book Medical Nemesis, launched what was then considered “the gravest health hazard we face today: our medical system.”
Illich was unforgiving. The first sentence in his text reads: “The medical establishment has become a major threat to health.”
His second sentence: “The disabling impact of professional control over medicine has reached the proportions of an epidemic.” Readers needn’t have read another sentence but to obtain the details.
You may have thought sex was just a pure form of physical enjoyment, but the health benefits that come along with it just can’t be ignored.
Many people don’t think having sex on a daily or nightly basis is plausible — between heavy workloads, stressful days, unintentional late-night binges on mac and cheese and all around laziness, but, honestly, sex is what can actually make you feel relief from all of those stressors.

Farts can send you many signs about your health.
There are some foods that cause smelly farts, like broccoli, almonds, cauliflowers, and Brussels sprouts. Moreover, foods that are rich in sulfur like eggs and meat can cause smelly farts. However, this doesn’t mean you should not consume these foods.
Consuming foods that cause gas help the microbes in the gut to get nutrients. If these microbes are not fed carbohydrates, it would be more difficult to live in the gut. Continue reading
Baking soda health remedies are remarkable for the many ailments that can be cured or relieved by this most basic, natural compound. Its usefulness makes sodium bicarbonate one of the all-important tools to keep in your natural home health kit.
Baking soda is derived from the natural mineral natron and has been used since ancient times for many purposes.

Today, the many cleaning and cooking uses for baking soda are widely recognized.
But, are you aware of the amazing medicinal uses for baking soda? Continue reading
Most people ingest too many refined, processed foods. Even us health nuts have a tendency to do this. In this fast paced world, with the body biologically programmed to desire sweets and other easy carbohydrates that are so much harder to find in nature, it’s common and totally normal to have too much Candida in our body.
If you experience this problem, and again, most people do, here are some ways you can balance your gut flora. Balancing the flora will alleviate many health issues, even little annoying ones you thought you were stuck with for the rest of your life such as itchy ear canals, body odor, and eczema.

Jackson County, Oregon, has just joined the small but growing ranks of “GE-free zones” in the U.S., which prohibit the cultivation of genetically engineered (GE) crops. It’s at least the eighth county in the country to create such an ordinance, and efforts are springing up to pass similar measures in other places. Continue reading
The battle against dementia should focus on the benefits of a Mediterranean diet rather than ‘dubious’ drugs, leading doctors have told the Government.
In an open letter to the Health Secretary, they said persuading people to eat fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, fish and olive oil was ‘possibly the best strategy currently available’ for preventing Alzheimer’s and other memory-robbing diseases. Continue reading
America’s newest health trend is really an ancient one: Bone broth
Proponents of the savory solution say it does everything from draw out toxins to sooth digestion and erase wrinkles. New Yorkers are shelling out up to $9 for to-go cups of the stuff.
In reality, the seemingly magical elixir is really just plain old broth with one added detail: the bones used to make it are slow-roasted, a process that is supposed to draw out nutrients. Continue reading
I’ve been on vacation in Colorado since shortly after Christmas, which means that my physical activity has basically been limited to the few minutes of stretching and an hour of aerobics, which is my daily exercise regimen.
Before and after, barring the occasional day of snowmobiling, I live a much more sedentary life than I do during the touring portions of the year or even my off times at Twin Pines, where there are horses and four-wheelers to ride, hours spent hitting golf balls out into the back pasture and all kinds of recreational and non-recreational activities. Continue reading
In 1956, a major cooking oil company published a series of magazine advertisements claiming that “fried foods become light foods” when vegetable oil is used in place of butter or lard. The clear message to health-savvy homemakers was that vegetable oil was a low-calorie solution to the more traditional fats they were cooking with. Millions of well-meaning cooks took the bait and made the switch, thinking their families would be better off as a result.
Fast-forward 60 years and this cooking oil marketing blitz was evidently an industry success. Vegetable oils continue to remain the go-to fat used in fried and processed foods. Marketers are still claiming that they’re better for human health than animal fats because they contain no cholesterol and aren’t saturated. But what does the latest science have to say about this vegetable oil madness? Continue reading
Welcome to Views From the Outside. The purpose of this section, is to introduce you to what others have to say about Dr. Kelley’s protocols in Cancer Therapy, and Nutritional – Metabolic Therapy – in fact the title of this maiden voyage article. What we are about to share was published in 1993 in a book by Richard Walters in his book, OPTIONS – The Alternative Cancer Therapy Book. We have elected to publish the chapter in its entirety.
As this web-site is resigned to information and solutions, which are deemed to be of benefit to your health – and specifically the protocol of Dr. William D.Kelley and his cancer treatment program, we post this article without the permission of the author. (Editor) Continue reading
This pretty much describes the CDC Childhood Immunization Schedule since 1950.
On February 1, 2016, the insanity continued as the CDC hiked the childhood immunization schedule even further by adding another 3 vaccinations and lowering the age for the first HPV jab (Gardasil) to 9 years old. The total is now an outrageous 74 doses (53 injections) by age 17, an increase of 24X since 1950.
Have our children become pin cushions of profit for the drug companies? Here’s the breakdown. You decide. Continue reading
Deceptive Emails by Health Officials Exposed to Public
Dr. Sin Hang Lee, M.D., F.R.C.P.
“I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.”
This statement was made in April of 2014 by French medical doctor Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Merck, the manufacturer of the HPV vaccine Gardasil. Continue reading
One of the foremost researchers whose work led to the development of the two existing human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines, now warns that as currently used, those vaccines have not been proven safe or effective.
“About eight in every ten women who have been sexually active will have HPV at some stage of their life,” said researcher Diane Harper of the University of Louisville. “Normally there are no symptoms, and in 98 per cent of cases it clears itself. But in those cases where it doesn’t, and isn’t treated, it can lead to pre-cancerous cells which may develop into cervical cancer.” Continue reading
My daughter turned 15 in February of 2015. Once she had lots of friends and participated in many activities both in school and at home. She did Irish dancing from 4 years of age, played football for her parish and county, and was awarded 2nd place in the world handwriting competition. She was great in school. In short, she was healthy, active and happy. (Story by Ann Fitzpatrick, republished from SaneVax.org.)
All of that changed shortly after she got her first injection of the HPV vaccine, Gardasil in October 2012. Continue reading
By all accounts, our daughter was normal before receiving the HPV vaccine. Katie performed very well in school. She was conscientious, hard-working and took pride in getting good grades. She loved dancing having taken dance classes since she was 3 years old. Katie always danced and twirled throughout our home and anywhere else she happened to be. When Katie was 10, she joined cheerleading and became involved in competition cheerleading. She was very active, taking four hours of dance class every week plus spending many more hours practicing with her competition cheer team. Katie was healthy and vibrant. Continue reading
In the decades after World War II, a one-eyed Irish missionary-surgeon named Denis Burkitt moved to Uganda, where he noted that the villagers there ate far more fiber than Westerners did. This didn’t just bulk up their stools, Burkitt reasoned; it also explained their low rates of heart disease, colon cancer, and other chronic illnesses. “America is a constipated nation,” he once said. “If you pass small stools, you have big hospitals.”
“Burkitt really nailed it,” says Justin Sonnenburg, a microbiologist at Stanford University. Sure, some of the man’s claims were far-fetched, but he was right about the value of fiber and the consequences of avoiding it. And Sonnenburg thinks he knows why: Fiber doesn’t just feed us—it also feeds the trillions of microbes in our guts. Continue reading
Mercury constitutes 50 per cent of silver fillings and can degrade and cause heavy metal poisoning over time – though they are still considered save by the American Dental Association
She says she first remembers developing a myriad of medical problems in grade school, but no one seemed to know why. The last thing the medical/dental community thought was that her problems could ever have been caused by her fillings.
As a young girl, Diane Meyer says she got amalgam “silver fillings” in her teeth that contained a combination of elements, but which were filled about 50 percent with mercury. It was the filling of choice back then and remained the filling of choice for decades thereafter. Continue reading
It’s long been known that not getting enough sleep is bad for your health.
A lack of shut eye has been linked to diabetes, depression, heart disease and other troubling ailments.
And now, scientists have highlighted the impact too little sleep can have on the mind – increasing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
Dr Jeffrey Illif, a brain scientist at Oregon Health and Science University, told NPR that ‘changes in sleep habits may actually be setting the stage’ for dementia. Continue reading
A top official at pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson dismissed questions on a recent earnings call about the drug price reform debate in Washington, saying that the company is “responsible” in its pricing.
As part of the question and answer period during the company’s third quarter earnings call in October, one questioner asked Johnson & Johnson Chief Financial Officer Dominic Caruso where he sees the drug pricing reform debate in Washington going and if the company was planning a pledge, similar to one made by many firms in the 1990s, to not raise drug prices beyond the cost of inflation. Continue reading
Cancer patients who receive chemotherapy during the last stages of their life are more likely to die in hospital rather than their preferred location at home, a study has shown.
The research showed that many doctors have a hard time initiating end-of-life conversations with their patients, especially the young, even after cancer has spread to different parts of the body.
Such patients were also less likely to have discussed their final wishes with their doctors, meaning many were placed on a ventilator and had a less peaceful death than those who ended treatment early. Continue reading
Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), commonly known as Tulsi, is considered the most sacred herb in India. This herb is known to possess potential disease-protective properties. For this reason, almost all Indian households have a Tulsi plant in their garden so that the leaves of the plant can be used to prevent and cure illnesses including cancer.
In recent years, the scientists all over the world have conducted research on this herb to know more about its anti-cancer properties. Continue reading
Fat from the fruit ‘targets leukaemia cells and stops them growing’ – raising hopes for a new drug
Canadian scientists, hope to develop a new cancer-fighting drug using fat derived from avocados
Canadian scientists, hope to develop a new cancer-fighting drug using fat derived from avocados.
They are delicious in guacamole or cut up in salads, and we’ve long been told they’re a healthy form of fat. But now, scientists believe avocados could help in the fight against cancer.
A new study has revealed fat from the creamy fruit can combat acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), a rare but deadly form of the disease.
Fat molecules from avocado tackles leukaemia stem cells, which are the root of the disease, as they grow into abnormal blood cells, Canadian researchers said. Continue reading
How your body reacts to Atkins, Paleo and the 5:2 ‘is determined by your metabolism’
For years, failing to lose weight while on a diet has been put down to a simple lack of willpower.
Whether the diet is the Atkins, Dukan, 5:2, or Paleo diets have often been more successful for some would-be slimmers than others
Slimmers who fail to lose weight because it is believed their eating is ‘out of control’ may simply be getting the wrong advice on what to eat, the scientists claim.
Now researchers have discovered that our bodies are unique in their response to a wide range of everyday foods, including pizza, bread, and ice cream. Continue reading
Is your gut happy or unhealthy?
It’s time for a gut check – literally. “It’s not as easy as one would think to figure out if your gut is healthy or not,” says Kristi King, M.P.H., RDN, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. That’s because, according to Scott Schreiber, D.C., CNS, chiropractic physician and clinical nutritionist, “Signs and symptoms of an unhealthy gut include much more than bloating, constipation or diarrhea.” Continue reading
A CDC report finds some hospitals over-prescribe the drugs
Doctor with stethoscope and handcuffs
Some hospitals and doctors overprescribe antibiotics and put patients at risk of deadly superbugs and drug-resistant bacterial infections, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released this week. The CDC studied prescribing practices at 323 hospitals in 2010 and 183 hospitals in 2011 and found that some hospitals are three times more likely to prescribe antibiotics than others. The study also found that nearly a third of prescriptions for the common antibiotic vancomycin are ordered without proper testing or are given for too long. “Antibiotics are important medications…but they also have side effects,” says Arjun Srinivasan, a medical epidemiologist for the CDC. “It’s bad for patients to be on drugs they don’t need.” Continue reading
Methinks, from the myriads of medical and/or quasi medical studies, not to mention numerous more pseudo reports, that ‘depression’ is one of the most clinically corrupted and manipulated of human experiences. For all of human history it was treated as a perfectly natural human expression which all human’s experience at times of grief or profound disorder. No doubt poor nutrition and/or lack of sleep and chronic worry may worsen depression, just as reportedly the side effects of other drugs, as well as those psychotropic conceptions allegedly meant to cure depression. After all, the brain requires as much care as the rest of the body. Continue reading
If you are a nurse in the US and refuse the flu vaccine (one the CDC has even admitted doesn’t always work, largely due to fast mutations and too slow of production) then you have to wear a face mask while on duty. Despite the fact that multiple studies have also shown that flu vaccinations are ineffective and do not offer any extra protection for hospital patients, hospitals are forcing the issue on some of their most prized employees.
Some nurses are choosing to lose their jobs instead of being forced into receiving a vaccine. Others are fighting back by suing the hospital, state, and federal governments for $100,000,000 for trying to take away their constitutional rights. Continue reading
It is that time of the year again, when the cold and flu season strikes rendering millions a slave to the sniffles.
Common sense dictates a host of things we can do to reduce our risk of catching the dreaded bug doing the rounds.
Steer clear of sick friends and relatives, take vitamin supplements, and avoid getting too run down.
But, the preventative measures do not end there.
One of the best forms of defense may in fact be lurking in the local grocery store, according to one expert. Continue reading
Can you say, “Fukushima?”
Researchers think environmental effects related to the large amount of farmland in California could be affecting thyroid cancer rates there.
The overall rate of advanced-stage thyroid cancer diagnoses in California is six percent higher than the rest of the United States, with several geographical areas in the state outpacing the statewide rate by even more. Photo by Bork/Shutterstock
Although thyroid cancer rates are increasing across the United States, researchers found several parts of California, and the state overall, have a higher incidence of its diagnosis at an advanced stage, according to a new study. Continue reading
