Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that affects people of all ages. It’s transmitted by deer ticks and black-legged ticks across the United States, as well as in more than sixty other countries. According to the CDC, at least 300,000 people are infected with Lyme disease each year. Diagnosing Lyme disease can be difficult, because its symptoms mimic many other diseases. It can affect any organ in the body, including the brain and nervous system, the muscles and joints and the heart. Continue reading

X-rays and other “objective” instruments influenced controversies about whose pain should be believed.
Pain is sometimes easy to understand. You break your arm, and it hurts. It gets better. It hurts less. But pain can also be incredibly hard to understand. Chronic pain. Pain that lingers long after an injury should have healed. Pain that resists an easy association between injury and hurt.
While this kind of “pain without lesion” has long puzzled doctors, the 19th century ushered in a whole new era of controversy, argues the bioethicist Daniel Goldberg in a recent paper, “Pain, objectivity and history: understanding pain stigma.” Continue reading
Biologists say that 2017 is going to be a big year for Lyme disease, and that the condition could ravage the United States and other parts of North America. The culprit? An explosion in mice populations across the country, but particularly in the Northeast.
But what do mice have to do with Lyme disease? Ticks and deer are what spread the disease, right? Continue reading
The failure of the GOP to repeal Obamacare proves once again that the establishment power structure maintains their grip on political policy. The incompetence of Paul Ryan is more closely described as a propensity to be a faithful stooge for the corporatist agenda. It is because of this assessment, which reflects the current state of conduct where nothing ever changes or actually improves society that keeps the malevolent system in place. Regretfully, Big Government is now the GOP Platform. Continue reading
Chamomile, a common herb used in teas, can calm muscle spasms, relieve menstrual cramps, ease nerves, soothe an upset stomach, promote healthy skin and even help you sleep.
Even better: It is a beautiful, flowering herb that can easily be grown outdoors and indoors.
There are two kinds of chamomile: Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) and German chamomile (Matricaria recutita). Both kinds have similar health properties and produce white and yellow daisy-like flowers. The steps for growing either variety of chamomile are the same, and the only difference is how the plants grow. Roman chamomile is a perineal and a low-growing plant, flowering close to the ground and can act as a ground cover. Continue reading
Oral bacteria may play a key role in the development of certain types of cancer, various studies have shown. A vast number of studies have long established a link between oral bacteria and cancer, and identifying the mechanism behind this connection may help health experts determine a person’s cancer risk just be examining certain bacteria in his mouth.
Examining the body’s microbiome composition is a relatively new field in medical science, said Dr. Jiyoung Ahn, an Associate Professor of Epidemiology at New York University School of Medicine. Research from the past five years found that 80 percent of bacteria residing in the human body cannot be cultured in a lab dish. Continue reading
Breast implants can cause a rare and hard-to-treat form of cancer, the FDA has confirmed in a landmark update to its guidelines.
It comes after the federal agency received reports from 359 women claiming a link between their implants and their diagnosis of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
As of February 1, 2017, nine of those women have died. Continue reading
Two thirds of cancers are unavoidable even if you live a healthy life, a study has shown.
Scientists in the US found cancers are caused by random mistakes in the genetic code that occur when cells divide. The findings challenge the widespread view that cancer mutations are generally inherited or triggered by environmental factors. Continue reading
Regardless of how you take C and lysine, research shows that there’s less chance of a blood clot or arterial rupture resulting in a crippling stroke or death
How could it happen to Kris Letang, the Pittsburgh Penguin hockey player? He was young, in excellent physical condition, yet a victim of stroke. Today, stroke is not just a senior problem. So, why don’t learned professors know why this is happening? Continue reading
In the late 1930’s, a dangerous trend in the field of medical research was just beginning. Researchers were experimenting with the use of mustard gas to treat cancer. Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, who had won the Nobel Prize in 1937 for his discovery of vitamin C, saw the destruction that this toxin had caused in World War I and was concerned. He knew that there had to be an alternative to what would turn out to be the beginnings of chemotherapy, i.e. using the most dangerous toxins on the planet to kill cancer cells (and healthy cells along with it).
Gluten intolerance occurs when the body, specifically the digestive tract, responds to the presence of gluten in food. The response can range from mild discomfort to serious medical complications. Awareness is continuing to rise regarding the problems caused by gluten, even for people who do not suffer from a gluten allergy.
Why Does Gluten Affect People?
There are many potential reasons for an increase in gluten intolerance. Many researchers have focused their efforts on examining the role of diet and changes to one’s diet. Continue reading
There is a growing body of evidence that points to the fact that cancer is a “metabolic disease.” You may have heard this statement before, but what does it really mean?
In a nutshell, it means that cancer is a problem that exists at the cellular level, in particular at the level of mitochondria within cells. Mitochondria are responsible for cellular metabolism and respiration; they are like the “lungs” of cells. They look like tiny rods and use oxygen and nutrients to create fuel for each of the cells. Mitochondria keep cells healthy and able to adapt to stress.
It takes a lot of energy, time and willpower to eat for your health these days, especially if you are on a Healthy Breast journey. In fact, this journey may seem all-consuming in the initial months after diagnosis or after making a strong commitment to be on a cancer prevention path.
When the focus on nutrition in particular becomes an obsession long after the “health crisis” is over, however, this is called Orthorexia Nervosa and may be cause for concern. Unfortunately, I have seen more and more women become so obsessed with their food, that it becomes a serious cause for anxiety. They develop a tremendous amount of guilt and concern for “cheating” and enjoying a few occasional comfort foods.
It was a noble ambition: “Prevention of diseases, not cure, or treatment, should be society’s foremost goal” — one that Dr. Hulda Clark relentlessly pursued within the naturopathic medicine field.
Hulda Clark earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in biology at the University of Saskatchewan. Clark continued her studies at McGill University before she attended the University of Minnesota, studying biophysics and cell physiology. Continue reading
Janette Murray-Wakelin is a breast cancer survivor who credits a raw food diet, meditation, physical activity, and following her intuition for her ability heal. In the early 2000s, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and told that she had just six months to live, without any guarantees. However, within those same six months, she was given a clean bill of health and also went on to participate in hundreds of marathons in only one year. That’s right, in just one year.
When we uncover what can be toxic to our immune, respiratory, digestive and endocrine systems, we can remove these from our living environment. My thoughts are, the only way to choose health is with proper information and awareness. Find out if you have cancer causing toxins in your home. Continue reading
Publisher’s NOTE: What follows in another example of how the International Medical Community persecutes those who have guided people to a healthy life. This reaches beyond Dr. William D. Kelley, Nicholas Gonzalez, Gerson, Bryzinski, Hulda Clarke, Royal Rife and so many others. ~ J.B.
Dr. Hamer had an exceptionally high success rate with his cancer therapy, by far the highest I have seen of any therapy. During one of several trials of the persecuted Dr. Hamer the public prosecutor (Wiener-Neustadt in Austria) had to admit that after 4 to 5 years 6,000 out of 6,500 patients with mostly advanced cancer were still alive. That is over 90%, almost a reversal of the results to be expected after conventional treatment of advanced conditions. Continue reading
Part 2 ~ How Americans Avoid Good Health
By reading National Health Care: Or, Is It Sick Care? ~ Part 1 of this series — you understand that most Americans that suffer diseases, heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, joint pain, arthritis and more problems—simply eat poorly, exercise very little and follow endless addictive unhealthy choices.
Yet, as their bodies break down, deteriorate and suffer pain, Americans drink, smoke, ingest billions of pain relievers and visit doctors to solve their problems. Continue reading
Young people are four times more likely to develop the disease than previous generations – due to their terrible diet
Unprecedented numbers of young people are being diagnosed with bowel cancer – due to poor diets and lack of exercise, a study warns.
Millennials – those born between 1980 and 1995 – are four times more likely to develop rectal tumors stemming from the large intestine compared to those born around 1950.
An alarming three in ten rectal cancer diagnoses are now in patients below the age of 55. Young people are also at twice the risk of developing colon tumors, which start growing lower down. Continue reading

If You Have Them, Do THIS Immediately!
Many of us in the effort to save energy and money, replaced our old standard light bulbs with environmentally-friendly with the new generation energy saving light bulbs. However, the new generation of energy efficient light bulbs are so toxic that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created an emergency protocol you need to follow in the event of a bulb breakage, due to the poison gas that is released. If broken indoors, these light bulbs release 20 times the maximum acceptable mercury concentration into the air, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Fraunhofer Wilhelm Klauditz Institute for German’s Federal Environment Agency.

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
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
Twenty Cool Uses Of Coca-Cola

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…
