Just one century ago in America, all of the most popular chronic diseases and disorders that we know so well today barely existed, including cancer, diabetes type 2, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and heart disease. Still, nearly every medical doctor in the United States blames hereditary genes for these preventable health problems, as if somehow a few generations of humans changed hundreds of thousands of years of evolution basically “overnight.”
Doctors don’t receive training or coursework in nutrition during their 8 to 16 years of college and field work, so of course they’re not going to have any real consumption recommendations for preventing or reversing what IS preventable and reversible. Continue reading
From doctors giving women orgasms to cure their ‘hysteria’ to cocaine to sooth toothache and tobacco enemas to revive drowning victims…
It was not unusual for Victorian women to be given orgasms by their doctors – in a bid to cure them of their ‘hysteria’, a common problem said to affect three in four.
Cocaine was also once used to soothe tooth pain – and was famously an ingredient in Coca Cola – while tobacco enemas were a form of first aid given to revive drowning victims in the 18th century. Continue reading
Primum non nocere
Let me preface what I am about to say by stating that I have the utmost esteem for mainstream medicine’s skill in emergency situations — the do or die surgeries, the dispensing of powerful life-saving drugs necessary in that setting are second to none; and its mastery of cosmetic surgery in cases of deformities and the advances made in prosthetics are nothing less than spectacular. These are what make mainstream medicine great.
. . .
The pompous certainty of mainstream medicine’s powerful proponents — be they multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies, medical associations, disease-specific charities, government agencies, Madison Avenue selling the diseases and the pills, TV or magazines, the news media parroting its cash cow’s every claim — combined have most people, hook, line and sinker, believing in the impeccable record of mainstream medicine. No questions asked. Continue reading
School districts — hard up for cash — are turning to an unlikely source of revenue: cell towers. The multistory metal giants are cropping up on school grounds in Chicago, Milpitas, Calif., Collier County, Fla. and many other places across the country.
The big reason: money. As education budgets dwindle, districts are forming partnerships with telecom companies to allow use of their land in exchange for some of the profits. Continue reading
A recent report by the Environmental Health Trust revealed that popular mobile phone brands emit radiation that is about three times higher than the manufacturer’s previously reported radiation levels, of which Samsung, Apple, Motorola, and Nokia are the main suspects. In line with this, the French Agence Nationale Des Frequences has issued a list of mobile phones — including details of make, model, and test results for each mobile phone assessed — that have higher than expected radiation emission. Continue reading
The radiation dose rate at typical commercial airline flight altitude (35,000 feet) is about 0.003 millisieverts per hour
This past April, business traveler Tom Stuker became the world’s most frequent flyer, logging 18,000,000 miles of air travel on United Airlines over the last 14 years. That’s a lot of time up in the air.
If Stuker’s traveling behaviors are typical of other business flyers, he may have eaten 6,500 in-flight meals, drunk 5,250 alcoholic beverages, watched thousands of in-flight movies and made around 10,000 visits to airplane toilets.
He would also have accumulated a radiation dose equivalent to about 1,000 chest x-rays. But what kind of health risk does all that radiation actually pose? Continue reading
Here’s Why You Should Probably Never Get One
In 2013, the Swiss Medical Board, an independent health technology assessment initiative, was requested to prepare a review of mammography screening. The team of medical professionals included a medical ethicist, a clinical epidemiologist, a pharmacologist, an oncologic surgeon, a nurse scientist, a lawyer, and a health economist. Two of those members, Nikola Biller-Andorno, M.D. Ph. D. and Peter Juni, M.D, opened up about the project in the New England Journal of Medicine.
They said: “As we embarked on the project, we were aware of the controversies that have surrounded mammography screening for the past 10-15 years. When we received the available evidence and contemplated its implications in detail, however, we became increasingly concerned.” 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
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
A longtime Telecom Italia employee has been awarded monthly social security payments after a court found that his brain tumor was caused by improper use of a company-issued cellphone.
Lawyer Stefano Bertone said Thursday that it was the first trial court verdict of which he was aware in the world “to recognize a link between cellphone use and the development of brain tumor.”
Bertone said one factor that appeared to have contributed to the verdict was the refusal by the court’s expert to accept into evidence studies that were funded by the telecom industry. Continue reading
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.

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
Do homeopathic remedies protect against X-rays, CT scans and other radiological procedures?
In Brief: X-rays, fluoroscopy and CT scans provide early detection of serious problems, inform treatment, and save lives. Unfortunately, they also damage genetic material and cause cancer. Research indicates Homeopathy may be a useful way to minimise the harmful effects of radiation exposure from x-rays, CT scans, and other 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
Cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues.
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. Continue reading
One of the big selling points for new cell phones on the market today are upgrades to technology which allow devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S7 to “fast charge” using “Qi” technology, portable wireless charging pads designed for small devices such as cellphones. Wireless charging stations can charge phones in about half the time as “plug in” devices and save on wear and tear to internal plug-in ports.
But do these conveniences come at a price to your health? Continue reading
