When it comes to treating pain and chronic disease, many doctors are turning to treatments like acupuncture and meditation—but using them as part of a larger, integrative approach to health.
Back in the 1990s, the word “alternative” was a synonym for hip and forward-thinking. There was alternative music and alternative energy; there were even high-profile alternative presidential candidates like Ross Perot and Ralph Nader. That was the decade when doctors started to realize just how many Americans were using alternative medicine, starting with a 1993 paper published in The New England Journal of Medicine. The paper reported that one in three Americans were using some kind of “unconventional therapy.” Only 28 percent of them were telling their primary-care doctors about it. Continue reading
I’m certain if you were to poll women and ask whether they’d rather have lawns with no weeds or be able to keep their breasts, the answer would be the latter! And yet billions of tons of pesticides are spread all over our lawns, on our kids’ soccer fields, at our parks and on our crops, regardless of the mounting scientific evidence that directly links these toxic chemicals to breast cancer and other types of cancers.
Here’s a list of harmful but common chemicals found in our food, food packaging, food containers, and water supply as well as some ways to avoid or limit your exposure. Continue reading
“Chemotherapy drugs are derived from World War I nerve gas chemicals.” ~ Nick Gonzalez
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez was a tireless physician for those left behind by Western medicine. In fact, his success with ‘terminal’ cancer patients was second to none. Despite all the ridicule and vicious attacks leveled against him over the years, Dr. Gonzalez remained steadfast in his beliefs, caring for and supporting those in need.
Dr. Gonzalez was a staunch supporter of medical freedom and informed consent. Unlike the conventional cancer industry and its fear tactics, Dr. Gonzalez NEVER tried to convince someone to accept his therapy over standard medical treatments like, surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Continue reading
Skull on fire, writhing in pain, one journalist tells his own story about the onset of searing headaches and the feeling of being “hit over the head with a rod of steel.” That’s how journalist Adam Estes described the mysterious “bolts of pain” that shot from the top of his neck and across his skull.
The pain was debilitating and confusing. He was never physically attacked or hit across the head. He hadn’t been in a car accident. He didn’t have a sports injury. The pain stemmed from something much simpler, something right under his nose. It all had to do with his posture. Continue reading
Recent breakthroughs in cancer treatment come with a hefty price tag.
In 2014, virtually every new cancer-treatment drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration was priced at more than $120,000 a year, according to a new study. And the cost for each additional year lived by a patient as a result of new drugs soared from $54,000 in 1995 to $207,000 in 2013. Continue reading
How perfumed toiletries—particularly douches—lead to dangerously high levels of chemicals in the body
In a 2010 ad, feminine-hygiene purveyor Summer’s Eve seemed to suggest that using its products will lead to getting a raise. The next year, the company sparked an outcry when a series of its commercials featured stereotypically black and Latina voices—the latter actually cried, “Ay-yai-yai!”
Douche-makers might be running out of ways to make American women want to irrigate their nether regions. By now, the science is clear that shooting scented water into your ladyparts doesn’t prevent or treat infections. In fact, it only promotes yeast or bacterial overgrowth because it disturbs the normal vaginal ecosystem. The practice has also been linked to infertility and a greater risk of STDs. Continue reading
Below is a clip taken from the “One More Girl” documentary, a film regarding the Gardasil vaccine, which was designed to prevent Human Papillomavirus. In it, Dr. Peter Rost, MD, a former vice president of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world (Pfizer), shares the truth about the ties between the medical and pharmaceutical industry.

Patients mourn the loss of a compassionate, innovative doctor who helped thousands heal from cancer.
Holistic cancer treatment pioneer Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died earlier this morning, apparently from a heart attack, according to reports Natural News has received from close friends. Dr. Gonzalez is best known as a pioneering holistic cancer treatment doctor who helped many thousands of people overcome cancer through the use of complementary and holistic treatment protocols.
“It is with great sadness that the office of Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D. relays news of his untimely death on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. The cause of death was cardiac related, it appears, as he suddenly collapsed and was unable to be revived. Dr. Gonzalez was in excellent health otherwise so his passing is quite unexpected,” reports the Dr. Gonzalez website. Continue reading
The 21st Century Cures Act is going through the U.S. Congress right now, and it will likely pass into law unless some opposition materializes (it passed through the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee with a vote of 51 to 0). The Act is a give-away to the pharmaceutical industry, removing many of the safety mechanisms in place that are supposed to keep the public protected from unsafe drugs and medical devices.
The 21st Century Cures Act allows drugs to be rushed to the market, removes phase 3 testing as a requirement for drug approval, bases drug approval on biomarkers rather than actual health outcomes, and encourages the production of new antibiotics at a time when microbiome destruction is increasingly being linked to chronic diseases.

Dr. Kelley’s Cancer book is nearly ready to print.
Victory – at last…
Being in the unique position to have been trained by Kelley and having worked with him for the last seven years of his life, I felt privileged to have been asked by his son John Kelley to take over the editing and publication of Dr. Kelley’s Self-Test for the Different Metabolic Types in 2013. Did we do a rewrite? NO!… But there were editing issues that we felt needed to be corrected, a chart which badly needed updating – in addition to other pertinent information, which Kelley had always published separately in the past – and we chose to merge these publications into one.
noun word·smith \ˈwərd-ˌsmith\
a person who works with words; especially : a skillful writer. (Courtesy: Merriam-Webster)
Shortly after issuing the first of the updated Self-Test books, we were handed instructions to cease and desist publication of CANCER: Curing the Incurable, first by an individual referenced several times in the book in a somewhat slanderous manner (and I had always felt that it was unnecessary anyway) and secondly – and most importantly – by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) itself, who let us know in no uncertain terms, that the use of the word ‘cure‘ (or any variation thereof) was unacceptable… and so – for those of you who know me and how my mind works – I was determined to take on the common enemy – by playing wordsmith.

Big Government killed my wife. Years before a very dedicated team of physicians saved and extended her life, but the second or third class of doctors— all trained by the same schools and salaried by the same enormous government medical teaching facility let her life slip through their fingers.
Increasingly burdened by death dealing regulation and rationing of care, they failed to notice subtle changes in her that should have alerted them to find much earlier much earlier. Even after the late finding when her chances were not great, continued inadequate care, and unexplained delays of treatment were her death sentence. Continue reading
A doctor who netted millions of dollars by putting more than 500 patients through unnecessary and grueling cancer treatments and then billing insurers has been sentenced to 45 years in prison.
Dr Farid Fata, who worked in suburban Detroit, Michigan, poisoned around 550 victims – many of whom did not actually have cancer – by giving them excessive chemotherapy and other treatments.
His actions wrecked his patients’ health, with many sustaining chronic health problems such as brittle bones and fried organs. Other victims lost their homes and jobs, and were forced into bankruptcy. Continue reading
Gonzalez on Kelley
New York City physician and cancer specialist Dr. Nick Gonzalez focuses on alternative cancer treatment using a three-pronged nutritional approach. He’s had remarkable success treating patients diagnosed with some of the most lethal forms of cancer that conventional medicine cannot effectively address.
Alternative cancer treatments are a kind of “forbidden area” in medicine, but Dr. Gonzalez chose to go that route anyway, and has some remarkable success stories to show for his pioneering work.
He didn’t set out to treat cancer at first, let alone treat patients. His original plan was to be a basic science researcher at Sloan-Kettering, a teaching hospital for Cornell Medical College. He had a chance meeting with William Kelley, a controversial dentist who was one of the founders of nutritional typing. Dr. Kelley had been practicing alternative and nutritional approaches for over two decades at the time, leading him to begin a student project investigation of Kelley’s work in the summer of 1981.

Around 1945 local water treatment facilities began to add sodium fluoride to our water supply.
The first thing you should know is that the fluoride they put in our drinking water is not a pharmaceutical grade additive.
It is an industrial waste byproduct.
As aluminum production increased in the first half of the twentieth century, it became necessary to find somewhere to put the fluoride. Manufacturers could no longer get away with dumping it into rivers or landfills, because it was poisoning crops and making livestock sick. Francis Frary, chief scientist for ALCOA, had an idea. He commissioned Gerald Cox at the Mellon Institute, to conduct research regarding the benefits of adding fluoride to the water supply. The Mellon Institute was frequently hired by big business to produce research that supported their industries, and for several decades they produced research showing that asbestos was safe and did not cause cancer. Hmmm. Continue reading
Did you know that back in 1990, the Environmental Protection Agency was all set to release a report that admitted electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are dangerous to our health, including that EMFs have been linked with “the development of various cancers” but stopped short of straight up admitting they are “probable carcinogens”? Continue reading
There are a whole lot of folks around our age that have or know of others that have cancer. The system’s cancer industry has continually been a failure to extend the life of those with cancer. Yet, 90% plus will get in line with the conventional wisdom of radiation, chemo, medication, and surgery to deal with their cancer. The cancer results of conventional medicine continue to be horrific with little or no true longevity gains. Continue reading
A major study could change care for many of the hundreds of thousands of people each year who have cancer that spreads to the brain from other sites. Contrary to conventional wisdom, radiation therapy to the whole brain did not improve survival, and it harmed memory, speech and thinking skills, doctors found. Continue reading
Eddie: “I have no memory of ever being bit by any kind of bee.”
Slim: [interjecting] “Were you?”
Over the past year as I have completed a ten month long project of home restoration, I began to note something I had never witnessed before – not to the degree I have seen now – dead bees laying on the ground. Sometimes there is just one, sometimes several – and even on one occasion – several dozen. Continue reading
Unbeknownst to most, a Copernican revolution has already taken place in cancer theory. Today, the weight of evidence indicates that plants and not chemicals are the solution for reversing the global cancer epidemic.
Our understanding of what causes cancer has undergone something akin to a Copernican revolution in the past decade. Biological fatalism has been the predominant force in medicine over the past half century, where most conditions including cancer were believed predestined ‘in the genes,’ and therefore impossible to reverse. Instead of looking for root cause resolution of disease (RCRD), we resigned ourselves to ‘finding it early’ and in the case of cancer, when doing so (even when it was benign), we waged war against it, quite literally using weapons grade materials (mustard gas and nuclear materials-derived agents). Continue reading
Wishful thinking simply won’t deter from the fact that the cancer industry is just that: an industry. Doctors, drug companies, hospitals and other key stakeholders profit heavily each time a cancer patient submits to the conventional treatment model, which typically involves injecting chemotherapy poisons into the body, blasting it with ionizing radiation or cutting off body parts — or some barbaric combination of all three.
It might rub some people the wrong way to state this, especially those who’ve had to watch a loved one die from conventional cancer treatment, but each of these supposed treatments don’t actually work, in many cases. Little-known science, which the medical-industrial complex has made it a practice to ignore or cover up, reveals that, despite what the medical industry often claims, chemotherapy in particular just isn’t an effective cancer treatment. Continue reading
‘Opens new doors’ in search for a treatment
Researchers have made a major breakthrough in discovering how Alzheimer’s is caused – and say it could lead to new treatments.
The new study shows that our immune system, which protects our bodies from foreign invaders, plays a part in the debilitating disease.
However, they warn the exact role of immunity in the disease is still a mystery. Continue reading
We all really want to avoid the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol-A (BPA), but it can be difficult to navigate the grocery store aisles without accidentally putting a brand that still uses BPA in your cart. To help with this, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has released a new report analyzing which brands continue to line their cans with BPA.
Some of the brands are surprising; some not so much. However, the number of brands using BPA is shocking. Continue reading
Safety and wholesomeness depend on the manufacturing process
Determined to be up to 150 times sweeter than sugar, stevia has been touted for many years as a natural substitute for white refined sugar as well as the various artificial sweeteners. Continue reading
Pharmaceutical mammoth Pfizer faces more than 1,000 lawsuits from victims who say that the company knew about the relationship between birth defects and their #1 best-selling anti-depressant. A claim that Pfizer has, of course, battled against. Continue reading
As reported by one of the major British dailies, tens of thousands of teenage girls have been stricken with a debilitating illness following “routine” HPV vaccinations.
How often do we now read similar headlines? This issue concerning childhood and teenage vaccination programs will only get bigger until the vaccine manufacturers conduct the high integrity studies which are necessary. The rising incidence of secondary illness and concerning symptoms is simply too compelling not to take seriously. Continue reading
Why taking supplements may not be the straight forward solution they are made out to be.
Diabetes = Mineral Deficiencies ≠ Supplements
It is well known that diabetes, gastrointestinal and other disorders are related to significant mineral deficiencies and imbalances. For this reason, it is quite common that mainstream health professionals suggest that their patients take supplements. However, there are some specific cautions and drawbacks to be remembered. Continue reading
Acne is a skin condition can be caused by a variety of nutritional deficiencies, as well as food allergies food intolerances and fungal infections. Natural remedies for acne include vitamin B6, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C and herbs like tea tree oil. Acne occurs when the skin becomes inflamed. Oil glands secrete sebum that is a normal component of skin lubrication, however when the glands produce too much oil, the pores become blocked and blackheads and pimples occur. The pores then become filled with bacteria, which causes inflammation and redness. Acne occurs commonly during the teen years because of the increase of hormones during this time. However, this type of acne usually resolves itself by the time people are 30 years old. Continue reading
The therapeutic potential of cannabis appears limitless, extending far beyond just relieving nausea or pain in the terminally ill. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist from Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, has been studying the molecular activity of cannabinoids for more than 10 years, and during this time she and her colleagues have learned that tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the primary psychoactive component of cannabis, induces tumor cell “suicide” while leaving healthy cells alone.

Homicide risk increased by 31% to 200%… 100 million Americans take these drugs
Just as Natural News has warned for over a decade, mind-altering medications such as tranquilizers and psychiatric drugs (SSRIs) have now been confirmed to increase the risk of a person committing murder.
A new study published in the journal World Psychiatry (June 1 edition, not yet found on the web) found that several classes of prescription medications — including antidepressant drugs, tranquilizers and anti-inflammatory painkillers — markedly increased the chances of someone murdering another human being.
