Pharmaceutical antibiotics weren’t always around. Whatever did we do before companies like Roche, Merck, and Pfizer started making super-bug-creating, liver-damaging medications that also robbed us of our own innate immunity?
A DIY antibiotic remedy can be more effective than pharmaceutical drugs and less damaging to the liver.
People used natural antibiotics that not only promote good bacteria in the intestinal tract, considered vital for a good immune system, but also made use of inexpensive ingredients that are antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, and inflammation reducing.
In brief, we made our own remedies from nature’s pharmacopeia. Continue reading
Green tea might just be the healthiest brew you’ll ever drink.
It’s packed full of free radical-fighting antioxidants and comes with a diverse spectrum of benefits for health, ranging from weight management to enhancing mental functions and potentially reducing the risk of serious illness such as cancer and cardiovascular disease.
And these examples are just the tip of the tea leaf… Continue reading
According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 140,000 men and women will be diagnosed with some form of colorectal cancer this year. In fact, the most common form of colorectal cancer is colon cancer.
Health professionals often refer to colon cancer as a silent killer. It takes years for the disease to develop and symptoms to manifest. If you are concerned about developing colon cancer, it is essential that you learn to recognize the early symptoms of this frightening disease.
By detecting colon cancer in its early stages, your chances of survival will increase. Continue reading
Environmental standards do not feature in international regulations governing drug production
Industrial pollution from Indian pharmaceutical companies making medicines for nearly all the world’s major drug companies is fuelling the creation of deadly superbugs, suggests new research. Global health authorities have no regulations in place to stop this happening. Continue reading
If you’ve been following my health story here you know that I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2006. After that initial MS attack I was fairly symptom free until 2014. That’s when things began to get weird.
Non-Toxic Green Building Materials, Check!
We had renovated a 100 year old house in historic Mapleton Hill and moved in during the summer of 2014. I believed we had done a totally green renovation. That’s because I knew nothing about wireless technology. Every single thing in the house from lighting to thermostats to the sound system and more was wireless and ran on electromagnetic radiation. It was the equivalent of living with 300 cell phones in my home buzzing constantly. Continue reading
Turmeric has widely been toted for its effect on cancer, but new research has shown that its cousin ginger is just as powerful. Not only that, an active compound in ginger has potentially been found to be more effective than some cancer medications at killing cancer. There is even preliminary evidence of some cancer medications being ineffective and actually accelerating the death of cancer patients. Continue reading
The choices that a cancer patient makes are the single biggest choices of their life. Nothing compares because the further they get down this road called life, the more reality sets in and they realize what they had been doing is just not working as they had expected it to.
I think it’s pretty obvious to most of us that they have been hammering us with conventional medicines barbaric choices of chop, burn, or poison for way too long. If these had any real success what so ever, we would not even be having this discussion on what to do when you have cancer.
For the past 65 years, we have been observing a losing battle against cancer when they have been promising us a “cure” all along… Continue reading
When Jennifer Cordts noticed a slight redness on the side of one of her breasts two years ago, she had a feeling that she should be concerned. But when she visited her doctors and subsequently got a mammogram, she was told that it was nothing. There was, after all, no sign of a lump or a tumor. One doctor, in fact, suggested her bra might be too small. Another put her on a course of antibiotics. But time went on and the red mark that looked a bit like sunburn did not go away… Continue reading
Most potatoes we eat today have 100 percent less vitamin A than potatoes did in the 1950s. One hundred percent. That may sound unbelievable, but it doesn’t end there.
An analysis of nutritional records done by Canada’s national newspaper found that potatoes also lost 57 percent of their vitamin C and iron, 50 percent of their riboflavin, 28 percent of their calcium, and 18 percent of their thiamine. Of the seven nutrients analyzed to determine nutrient density, only niacin levels increased in potatoes in the past 50-60 years. Continue reading
Pancreatic cancer is the ninth most common cancer death in women and the fourth in terms of both men and women. According to recent research the five year survival rate for those diagnosed early is only 8% and this drops to 3% for those diagnosed at an advanced stage. This is mainly due to the fact that this type of cancer is extremely difficult to diagnose and is usually discovered when it’s advanced to an almost incurable stage. Continue reading
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound and dietary derivative of DMSO, which the body needs to enhance cell restoration.
DMSO is an old fashioned “folk remedy” which has been around for over 35 years, and has been widely used as an effective treatment for reduction of arthritis pain and improved skin softness. MSM, extracted from DMSO, has been extensively tested on both animals and humans (even my wife thinks I’m an animal), and has been awarded 16 different patents. At one time, Kettle Moraine, Ltd. was proud to have made this truly astounding product available to our listeners, but as the world caught on to the overall health benefits of MSM – it became no longer possible to make the product available to our customers at a competitive cost. Because of the fact that MSM has absolutely no harmful side effects and is as totally safe to use as water, MSM can be safely given to young children, teenagers, adults and senior citizens. But there is a lot more to the MSM story – including my personal story… Continue reading
Half of all men and one-third of all women will experience cancer at some point in their lives. Fortunately, there are ways to significantly reduce your risk, as detailed in Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy’s book, “The Cancer Revolution: A Groundbreaking Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer.” Connealy’s interest in cancer prevention and treatment grew out of her own, long personal health journey. Continue reading
“In my view, the situation is almost beyond repair. We need to do something drastic.” ~ Dr. Stephanie Seneff, PhD
Why? Evidence points to glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food.
For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, over the years publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles. In recent years she has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, tackling such topics as Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.

A rambunctious seven-year-old Ohio boy was taken from his parents after they refused to have him diagnosed with a mental disorder and put on psychoactive drugs.
Katie Maple knows how to deal with her son, Camden. When he gets bored, he acts out and becomes boisterous, as she puts it, “like children sometimes do.” But at the Bowman Primary School in Lebanon, they don’t know how to deal with Camden, so they demanded the parents force him to undergo a mental evaluation and be placed on drugs to make him more manageable.
The district won’t comment on Camden’s case, but here’s Katie’s side of the story: Continue reading
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
The FDA has acknowledged a clear link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) after nine women with implants died of the same cancer
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
