About 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in her lifetime. In fact, some estimates are that 255,180 new cases of invasive breast cancer – and an additional 63,410 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer – will be diagnosed across the nation in 2017 alone. With these horrible statistics, the need for early breast cancer detection and treatment is more important than ever – making thermography, also known as digital infrared thermal imaging, such a valuable (safe) tool for early detection of health issues.

In a press conference announcing a $100,000 challenge for anyone who can find a peer-reviewed scientific study proving the safety of the mercury-containing vaccine additive thimerosal, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. accused the press of having been “coopted” by the pharmaceutical industry.
Kennedy is chairman of the World Mercury Project, a group that advocates for a global ban on mercury, a substance that is 100 times more toxic than lead.
Kennedy stated that the pharmaceutical industry is now the single biggest contributor to advertising revenue to network news divisions, to the tune of $5.4 billion per year.
“A network news broadcast these days … is just a vehicle for selling pharmaceutical products,” he said. Continue reading
… and how to increase your metabolic health
There’s now yet another reason to pay attention to your metabolic health. According to a study published by the American Association for Cancer Research, post-menopausal women of a normal weight, but who are metabolically unhealthy, are at a “significantly higher risk for colorectal cancer” than those who are metabolically healthy.
This is a big deal because, according to the study’s authors, 30 percent of normal-weight adults worldwide are “metabolically unhealthy.” This is surprising, given metabolic health is normally associated with obesity. Science Daily explains a person’s metabolism is considered unhealthy when he or she suffers from at least three of the following symptoms: “elevated waist circumference, elevated blood pressure, elevated levels of triglycerides, elevated levels of glucose, and lower levels of HDL-C.” Continue reading
More than a million people in the U.S. get cancer each year according to the American Cancer Society. The best way to combat cancer is to discover it early, but yet people ignore symptoms they’re not aware of. Here are 10 cancer symptoms you should take note. Continue reading
Aluminum is everywhere: it contaminates vaccines, it’s in a variety of medications, baby products, cosmetics, and it’s even in the food you eat. And like several other metals, it isn’t really all that great for the human brain (or the rest of the body).
Even the CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) notes that aluminum can elicit negative effects in the musculoskeletal, neurological, and respiratory systems. This is especially worrisome because some research indicates that aluminum is capable of building up in bodily tissues, which would greatly increase its potential to cause harm. Continue reading
You probably caught the big news last week that President Trump’s new commissioner on vaccine safety, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., has issued a formal challenge: if anyone can find even a single credible study out there showing that the mercury derivative Thimerosal, which is added to influenza and other vaccines, is safe, then he or she will receive $100,000 in cash. Well, a good chunk of time has passed since this offer was issued and, sure enough, nobody has claimed the prize because no such study exists. Continue reading
There are always new diets popping up everywhere. One diet that recently caught my attention was the Ketogenic Diet. Since I have experimented with just about every diet out there, I wanted to experience first hand what it was all about.
Since we are now understanding that cancer is a metabolic dis-ease and basically a dis-ease of insulin resistance, carbohydrate intolerance and inflammation, the low carb approach of the Ketogenic Diet made sense to me. Plus, there is more and more science to back it up. Continue reading
Shingles, also known as “zoster” or “herpes zoster,” will affect roughly 1 out of every 3 American adults during their lifetime. Estimates suggest that there are upwards of one million cases of shingles each year in the United States. The disease is caused by dormant varicella zoster virus — the same virus that causes chicken pox. It is fairly well known that a history of having had chicken pox puts you at risk of developing shingles in your elder years.
But, did you know that the shingles vaccine could raise the risk of someone else getting chicken pox? Continue reading
Robert De Niro AGAIN questions vaccine safety and calls for an ‘independent commission’
Robert De Niro is again promoting the theory that there is a link between vaccines and autism.
‘Who settled it, how was it settled? Where is the science?’ the actor replied when asked by veteran journalist Sharyl Attkisson about the overwhelming evidence that vaccines are safe, as revealed in an advance clip of Full Measure’s Sunday episode obtained by Page Six. Continue reading
Twenty Cool Uses Of Coca-Cola
While many of us love to drink an ice cold Coca-Cola, did you know that Coke can be used in a wide variety of ways other than mere consumption?
1. Pest Killer
If you’re searching for a new, original, and effective way to rid your property of pests, pour Coca-Cola into a small bowl and place it near your outdoor flowers and plants. The smell of this powerful soft drink will attract pests, prompting them to taste the cola, thus resulting in death by acidity. Continue reading
Litchfield Park, Arizona Food Service director named Nutrition Hero
When you imagine a hero, most likely capes and laser vision come to mind, but you probably don’t picture someone who feeds pupils in public schools.
David Schwake, Litchfield Elementary School District’s Food Service director since 1994, was named a 2017 School Nutrition Hero by the national nonprofit School Nutrition Foundation.
“I didn’t cry. I didn’t get real emotional, but my wife did,” Schwake said. “I was pleasantly shocked. I don’t think what I do is anything special; I just think I do what every food service director should do.”
Schwake was nominated by the school district and chosen by SNF for providing healthy menus and environments for pupils, volunteering at local organizations and food banks, creating effective school initiatives that teach children nutrition and helping the community at large. Continue Reading…
FDA approves drug for terminal muscular dystrophy – but manufacturer hikes the price from $1,000 to $89,000 a year
A pharmaceutical company has been forced to ‘pause’ the launch of a crucial muscular dystrophy drug amid outrage over its $88,000 price-hike.
Emflaza, a steroid, is one of the only drugs believed to slow the effects of Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD), a terminal disease that disproportionately affects boys. Continue reading
The unfortunate news that Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) has been diagnosed with prostate cancer highlights America’s gender gaps in healthcare provision and the need for funding changes (“Minnesota gov. diagnosed with prostate cancer,” 1/24/17).
While in the federal bureaucracy there are a multitude of offices of women’s health, there are zero offices of men’s health. Continue reading

I wonder how many others have thought about the increase in DISEASES here in America – DISEASES that were pretty much eliminated over the years. Then all of the sudden the RETURN of those childhood and other diseases have made a big comeback.. In spite of all the massive promotions to force our children to be injected with chemical poisons called *VACCINATIONS*. Here in Western Washington we have had large numbers on children come down with MUMPS – a good many of those who developed MUMPS had been vaccinated with that MMR vaccines but they still got those DISEASES they were supposed to be vaccinated against getting. So much for those Poison Injections protecting those who got them. Continue reading
It’s one of the easiest over-the-counter medicines to buy, costing as little as 19p for a pack of sixteen tablets.
But a new study claims that self-administering paracetamol can potentially be as dangerous as cancer on the liver’s function.
Scientists have discovered how the common painkiller causes damage to the body’s vital organ on par with cirrhosis and hepatitis. Continue reading
Apart from controlling body temperature, sweat also has other important roles up its sleeve, one of which is fighting off infections. Namely, dermicidin, a compound found in sweat, helps destroy harmful bacteria prior to their entering the body. However, regular use of antiperspirants leads to complete blockage of the sweat ducts with toxins such as aluminum, which hinders this natural process. Continue reading
Hello all, its been a while since my last post. I guess I just needed some time to recharge my intellectual batteries enough to get passionate about an issue. What has instigated this passion is my research on the topic of water fluoridation and the sinister & coercive issues surrounding it. Having spent a lot of time investigating the causes of cancer, I have to spend some time discussing Fluoride.
Water Fluoridation follows the same path as many other truthbreakdowns in our society such as Vaccinations, Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy, and most Big Pharma drugs. Here are some commonalities: Continue reading
Conventional methods of treating cancer generate approximately $200 billion dollars each year, and that’s just in the U.S.! Most of this money goes to Big Pharma and a large majority is generated through the sale and use of chemotherapy drugs.
Chemotherapy is part of the “Big 3” treatment methods promoted by allopathic medicine: chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, with millions of cancer patients using it in some way each year. If you or someone you love decide to go the “chemo route” as part of an overall cancer treatment protocol, be sure to get the facts. Most importantly, find out what you can do to detoxify your body right away once your chemo course is over. Continue reading
The active ingredient LIMITS the effectiveness of the treatment to tackle the disease
It is considered a healthy alternative to dairy milk – and is famously popular among the yummy mummy crowd.
But experts warn that women shouldn’t start consuming soya milk after a breast cancer diagnosis – because it may limit the effectiveness of treatment. Continue reading
In 1994, after a lifelong aversion to politics, I ran for a seat in the US Congress out of the 29th District in Los Angeles. My platform was Health Freedom.
At the time, the FDA was raiding offices of natural practitioners, and threatening to cut off citizens’ access to a full range of nutritional supplements. Continue reading
When a person in the United States has a toothache, due to an infection in the tooth, rather than cure the infection with 3 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide, dentists almost always kill the tooth. They will typically drill out the insides of the tooth and fill the tooth with metal rods.
This is called a “root canal.” Root canals are a safe haven for microbes. Because no blood reaches the inside of the tooth, the immune system cannot kill any microbes inside the dead tooth. Continue reading
As children, we were told to drink milk to grow strong bones. As adults, especially women, our doctors emphasized the importance of getting enough calcium. But just how much is enough? According to the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Nutrition Board recommends 1,000 mg for both men and women aged 19 to 50. Women over the age of 51 should aim for 1,200 mg daily and men over 71 should do the same. Continue reading
Do homeopathic remedies protect against X-rays, CT scans and other radiological procedures?
A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine drew the medical establishment’s attention once again to the harmful effects of diagnostic radiation – particularly of CT (computed tomography) scans.
This latest study was nothing new but media outlets ran with the story, alarming the public about the increased risk of developing cancer from these scans. (1)
Medical imaging does carry risks but protective steps can be taken. (2) This article explores those risks and how homeopathy (and certain foods) can minimize the impact of those risks. Continue reading
January was US National Thyroid Awareness Month. Why am I mentioning this on a site dedicated to healing Breast Cancer naturally? For the simple reason that your thyroid – and its connection to the essential mineral iodine – may be one of the most important parts of your body to keep healthy if you wish to prevent and health Breast Cancer.
Scientists think so!
Mushrooms could be the food that protects you from Alzheimer’s disease, a new study claims.
Scientists have found that mushrooms contain contain bioactive compounds that could play a role in reducing or delaying the development of neurodegeneration. Continue reading
Researchers are always looking for ways to fight cancer. While most of the tests fail, a few have amazing results. In fact, some show better results than chemotherapy.
Let’s face it, chemo is very painful and also kills healthy cells in the body. In fact, it’s believed to cause death in most cancer patients.
The study I’m about to share with you proved that it’s possible to prevent and treat cancer without experiencing pain and harming healthy cells. Canadian researchers found that dandelions have strong anti-cancer properties. Continue reading
February is National Heart Month. When President Lyndon B. Johnson announced the first Heart Month in 1963, lifestyle-related disease rates were beginning to rise dramatically nationwide. In fact, in that same year roughly half of the deaths recorded were attributed to cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately, today the state of our hearts is not much better. Heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide, with more than 17.3 million individuals succumbing to inflammatory heart disease, ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, stroke and other conditions of the cardiovascular system. Of course, there are common factors between heart disease and cancer as well, including inflammation and high stress levels.
Yet at the same time, the last half-century has seen some amazing discoveries regarding the vital role that the heart plays with the body and especially with the mind.
Neuro-cardiology: How the Heart Communicates with the Brain
The field of neuro-cardiology is the study of how the heart and the brain communicate with one another. And yes, I purposely chose to put the word “heart” first when introducing this topic. Here’s why: while scientists at first thought of this relationship in terms of how the heart responds to the brain’s commands, we now know that there is often more instruction occurring from the heart to the brain than the other way around!
According to the Heart Math Institute, which has been producing cutting-edge research on heart intelligence for the last forty years, the heart not only communicates with the brain, but actually
has its own “neural network” (similar to the brain’s) that includes “complex ganglia, neurotransmitters, proteins, and supporting cells”. Basically, the heart is considered a “mini-brain” or secondary brain. According to Heart Math, the heart communicates directly with the brain and body in four ways:
- Through the overall nervous system
- Through hormones
- Through pulse waves
- Through electromagnetic fields (i.e. energy)
These discoveries have even led to a whole new vocabulary. Heart-brain is the term that neuro-cardiologists now use when describing the ways in which the heart sends signals that instruct brain and body functions.
Why Coherence is Vital for Your Healthy Breast Journey
“We are coming to understand health not as the absence of disease, but rather as the process by which individuals maintain their sense of coherence (i.e. sense that life is comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful)…” says Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., Director of Research for Heart Math.
Coherence within one’s self can be described through positive emotions and with terms such as “clarity,” “synchronization,” and “order”. There is a sense of harmony and flow in whatever is occurring.
In neurological terms, coherence is when all parts of the brain are working in harmony and are “in sync.” This is actually a necessary state for the brain to be in for it to function properly. In addition, coherence between the rhythmic patterns and electrical impulses within the heart as well as between the heart and the brain lead to the proper distribution of chemicals within the body and, ultimately, a healthy body overall.
Negative emotions, on the other hand, are considered to be incoherent states. Upset, anger and imbalance have all been linked to coronary disease as well as sleep disorders, neurological disorders, diabetes, fatigue, a compromised immune system and even cancer.
I like to describe coherence in your body and mind much like a symphony that is playing in unison and creating beautiful sounds that are relaxing and enjoyable.
Cacophony is just the opposite – everyone is beating to their own rhythm and key – it is not pleasant to listen to and can actually be stressful to listen to.
Your body is no different. If the organs and cells are communicating freely and are in sync, then vibrant health is the end result. If your body is out of coherence and your heart, brain are Immune System and playing “phone tag”, then this stress results in ill health.
It may seem obvious that maintaining coherence within can greatly benefit an individual going through a healing journey with breast cancer. Wouldn’t it be great if you could maintain this state for an extended period of time or in the midst of chaos and crisis? Positive psychologists and neuro-cardiologists say that it is possible. They say that staying in coherence overall is a skill that can be learned!
In Part 2, I will talk about what Heart Math and other experts suggest you can do to learn the skills of coherence. I will also highlight some very helpful and easy-to-use technology that can help with the process.

Few things strike fear into people more than the word cancer, and with good reason. While improvements in cancer therapy and advances in palliative care mean that the illness does not always lead to inevitable and painful death as it once did, approximately one in three of us will get some form of cancer in our lifetime.

You would not believe how many emails we have gotten from cancer patients who have gone through these three steps:
- The patient had chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery to treat their cancer;
- The patient was told they were “cancer-free”;
- Months later cancer “came back,” which is called “regression.”
Among other things, this article will explain what went wrong and how to prevent cancer from coming back. When talking about what causes cancer we need to talk about it at two different levels. Continue reading
