A billion-dollar system in which charitable giving is profitable.
In August 2015, Turing Pharmaceuticals and its then-chief executive, Martin Shkreli, purchased a drug called Daraprim and immediately raised its price more than 5,000 percent. Within days, Turing contacted Patient Services Inc., or PSI, a charity that helps people meet the insurance copayments on costly drugs. Turing wanted PSI to create a fund for patients with toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that is most often treated with Daraprim.
Having just made Daraprim much more costly, Turing was now offering to make it more affordable. Continue reading →
In Switzerland, health insurance plans are on the cusp of covering homeopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, holistic care and traditional Chinese medicine. In 2009, two-thirds of the Swiss spoke out in favor of incorporating these important and long suppressed healthcare strategies into their healthcare system. By May 2017, all these great healthcare methods will be included in Switzerland’s constitutional list of paid health services.
Will health insurance plans around the world begin competing to incorporate holistic healthcare strategies? Continue reading →
You WILL OBEY or we will take your children and they shall become WARDS (Property) OF THE STATE.
What is going on in Colorado? Have the Asylum inmates taken over completely? Perhaps it is the Altitude that has polluted the Attitude. ~ Jackie Juntti
Here’s the fraud of the State in action.
It seems that the Colorado Dept. of Public Health and Environment sent out a letter to parents demanding that those who have not vaccinated their children register them on a state website under requirement by law – the only problem is that there is no such law.
The agency has apologized, claiming the letter was sent out by mistake, but their intent was revealed anyway. Continue reading →
Interesting the ‘Weed(s)’ seem to providing natural remedies for whatever ails you…
A so-called “weed” growing right in your front and back yards could hold the key to being the most effective cancer-fighting compound in the world.
Previous research, as well as recent research from the University of Windsor in Canada, has found that dandelion root may be especially effective in treating and defeating cancer, and much more so than immune system-destroying chemotherapy. Continue reading →
It Fights Diabetes, Kills Cancer Cells & Serves as Great Diuretic
Dandelion root tea is a great spring tonic for our bodies; it helps the transition from winter to the warmer season, by nourishing and balancing the blood so it will flow better and keep us cooler in the summer season. Dandelion root has been used in Chinese medicine to treat various heart conditions. These heart health promoting benefits of dandelion root come from antioxidant compounds called polyphenols and flavonoids. Continue reading →
Scientists who really understand and care about holistic and homeopathic medicine are always researching to find alternatives to Big Pharma and mainstream health treatments that really don’t do much of anything except fill the bank accounts of corporate medicine. Part of their research has been to examine whether and how certain foods – especially those deemed “superfoods” – can fight some of most prevalent and deadly diseases. Continue reading →
From the campaign trail to the halls of Congress, drugmakers have spent much of the last year enduring withering criticism over the rising cost of drugs.
It does not seem to be working.
In April alone, Johnson & Johnson raised its prices on several top-selling products, including the leukemia drug Imbruvica, the diabetes treatment Invokana, and Xarelto, an anti-clotting drug, according to a research note published last week by an analyst for Leerink, an investment bank. Other major companies that have raised prices this year include Amgen, Gilead and Celgene, the analyst reported. Continue reading →
Cassandra Callender, of Windsor Locks, Conn., was diagnosed with stage 3 or 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was 17 years old.

In recent years there have been increasing reports that “smart meters” – the digitized electric meters that are designed to send usage figures to power companies wirelessly – are causing a range of health issues among a growing portion of the population where such devices are in use.
In fact, notes the EMF Safety Network, a growing number of people from around the world are beginning to report health problems they believe are related to an increased amount of wireless radiation from various devices, including smart meters. Continue reading →
Engraving depicting the Aqua Claudia in Rome Philip de Bay/Matthew Dubourg/Corbis
When the activists responsible for the first modern public-health systems sought to convince their governments to invest in sanitary infrastructure, a favorite tactic was to point to the glorious aqueducts and sewers of ancient Rome.
In stark contrast with European governments of the first half of the 19th century, one writer stressed:
It seems to have been a rule with [the Romans], that from the time when the foundation of a city was laid, to that of the summit of its greatness, no structural operation, public or private, should be permitted to take a shape which might render it a harbour either for disease or crime; and it is to this vigilant forethought that, in the absence of other organising agencies discovered only in our later times, we may attribute the success with which that remarkable people preserved social order, throughout so dense and vast a mass of human beings as the inhabitants of the imperial city in the days of its greatness.
The argument that Rome’s success was a direct result of its commitment to public health popped up first in Victorian London, and almost immediately hopped the Atlantic to be repeated by American sanitarians. Continue reading →
Collapses into state of brain damage… doctors blame the parents!
Desperate to share her story, a Texas mother is speaking out about the traumatic injuries her young daughter sustained after being injected at six months old with a total of eight vaccine doses.
About a month after infant Cerenity received the DTaP/Hib/IPV (5-in-1 combo), hepatitis B, pneumococcal Prevnar 13, and the oral Rotavirus vaccine, she suffered several major injuries and grew increasingly unwell. Continue reading →

As one reads the headline of this presentation and corresponding column, one is instantly drawn to the proverbial “magic pill.” We want to you to read the following, and take it with a grain of salt. Dr. William Donald Kelley, D.D.S., M.S. cured himself of pancreatic cancer in the early 1960’s. As we recently shared with you on this website, through a one hour interview with Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, one of Dr. Kelley’s former counsellees (who had been diagnosed by her Oncologist in the early 1970’s – also with pancreatic cancer) was still alive and cancer free in 2014.
According to the American Chiropractic Society, an estimated 68 to 80 percent of the United States population is deficient in the essential mineral magnesium. While our growing dependence on processed food is partly responsible for this alarming statistic, the real reason for it is that ongoing soil erosion has significantly depleted the mineral content of our soil within the last century. Consequently, many fruits and vegetables that were once rich in magnesium no longer contain it in adequate amounts, resulting in widespread deficiencies. Continue reading →

In addition to enhancing your life skills and boosting your food security, there is another major benefit of gardening, researchers have found: fitness.
Long-time gardeners have always know that putting plant and seed in the ground and then maintaining plants and crops as they grow is hard work. But chances are good that they weren’t aware of the health benefits of that work. Continue reading →
When doctors got a clean blood DNA test from MarySusan Sabini, they were afraid to rely on it because the test was so new. Credit Ángel Franco/The New York Times
In the usual cancer biopsy, a surgeon cuts out a piece of the patient’s tumor, but researchers in labs across the country are now testing a potentially transformative innovation. They call it the liquid biopsy, and it is a blood test that has only recently become feasible with the latest exquisitely sensitive techniques. It is showing promise in finding tiny snippets of cancer DNA in a patient’s blood.
The hope is that a simple blood draw — far less onerous for patients than a traditional biopsy or a CT scan — will enable oncologists to quickly figure out whether a treatment is working and, if it is, to continue monitoring the treatment in case the cancer develops resistance. Failing treatments could be abandoned quickly, sparing patients grueling side effects and allowing doctors to try alternatives. Continue reading →
You may already know that a healthy gut and plenty of probiotics to support your gastrointestinal health are absolutely critical to boosting your immune system (gut flora may account for 80% of immunity), but a new study coming from the University of Michigan has proven that probiotics may just be the answer to poisonous chemotherapy treatments and the overuse of antibiotics which tend to kill all the good bacteria in our bodies.
When people undergo chemotherapy as a treatment for cancer, the antibiotics which are often prescribed post-treatment also kill whatever good bacteria are left, thus causing an absolute crisis for the immune system, and upping the chance that chemo will kill you. Continue reading →
I’d like to take a moment to tell you a story about a fellow cancer patient named Rachel. We met while receiving our chemotherapy at Tripler Army Hospital in Hawaii. Our encounter was brief but it was one of the most unforgettable moments of my life. Sitting there chatting about our situations and our cancer prognosis I came to learn that God constantly reminds me how blessed I am even in the midst of what I believe to be a curse.
Just moments before I sat down in a chair beside Rachel, I had been in my doctor’s office receiving what I believed to be fairly dreadful news. Continue reading →
Autism, Vaccines, Mercury and the Culpability of the American Academy of Pediatrics
Dr. Kenneth P Stoller, MD was trained as a pediatrician at UCLA and was a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics for two decades. In 2008 he resigned from the AAP after realizing that the AAP has known that mercury in vaccines can cause Autism and other neurological damage, yet the organization has refused to make a determined effort to have mercury (in thimerosal) removed from all vaccines. And in fact, has instead engaged in a cover-up to protect the interests of the vaccine makers and pharmaceutical empires. Please share far and wide – the public needs to hear this! Dr. Stoller’s Website for parents wondering if their child will qualify for a medical exemption.
Johnson & Johnson is being sued by more than 1,000 women who developed ovarian cancer after using the company’s Baby Powder product. The lawsuit is based on the assertion that the company knew their product was associated with an increased cancer risk but deliberately withheld that information from the public. Continue reading →
It’s no secret that conventional medicine is a corrupt institution owned by Big Pharma, which pumps out a steady stream of medications with their own dangerous side-effects. What is less known is that conventional density is just as bad as the care and treatment patients receive in typical hospitals. Continue reading →
Rather than resort to chemotherapy and radiation to shrink an inoperable brain tumor, the father of an eight-month-old baby opted for a non-traditional treatment with cannabis oil. The baby’s physician, Dr. William Courtney, was at first weary about the medicinal benefits of cannabis oil, but has since become a believer in the wake of the child’s remarkable recovery. Continue reading →
The roots of a plant do more than just anchor it in the soil. Roots are like foragers, blazing trails into the unknown soil. As they reach out in search of food and water, roots form tiny hairs that help draw in the moisture and minerals that the whole plant needs. The water and mineral salts are then carried into the rhizome, the trunk, the branches, the flowers and the leaves, providing life and vitality to every part. Continue reading →
Long considered impossible to accomplish, new research reveals how a simple spice might contribute to the regeneration of the damaged brain.
