TEA TREE OIL: 21 Practical Ways to Use This Anti-Fungal Disinfectant

Tea tree oil is an essential in my medicine cabinet.

We have used tea tree oil in our family for years mainly as a disinfectant in my all-purpose spray cleaner, for bug bites and sunburns, and as a part of my topical replacement for antibiotics.

It is one of 6 essential oils in my homemade antibiotic mixture using a coconut oil carrier.

Most know it as an ingredient in homemade cleaners and now in toothpastes and antifungal preparations.

In a fascinating article, the American Cancer Society tells us… Continue reading

Dr. William D. Kelley: Developer of Non-Specific Metabolic Therapy

A dentist and orthodontist by training, Dr. William D. Kelley discusses the nutritional concepts and practices underlying non-specific metabolic therapy, how they emerged over years of treating patients and himself for disease, and the results he has achieved applying them.

Following this magazine’s interview with Dr. Harold W. Manner, we received innumerable letters and phone calls. Much of that correspondence was from readers who hadn’t known of the healthcare possibilities offered by nutrition therapy until they read about the Manner program in our pages, but a surprisingly large number of folks called to let us know that there are other revolutionary researchers who are “curing” degenerative diseases such as cancer. And the greater part of these “tips” suggested that MOTHER EARTH NEWS look into the metabolic therapy work of Dr. William Donald Kelley at his Winthrop, Washington clinic.

The Dentist Who Cured Cancer

Every so often we feel the need to bring this column back to the forefront… after all – Dr. William D. Kelley is the reason that this site was developed for him back in the year 2000. We honor his legacy and continue to battle for the victims of this dreaded dis-ease – to this very day. We thank researcher Paul Fassa for his continued efforts.  ~ Ed.

During the 1960s, a small town Texas dentist discovered a way to cure his terminal pancreatic cancer; he then proceeded to cure others of all kinds of cancers until the Medical Mafia struck him down. His name was William Donald Kelley, DDS, MS. Continue reading

Screen Time Syndrome: Brain Images Explain Why Kids Are Moody, Impulsive & Can’t Pay Attention

Originally published by Kettle Moraine Publications on another site on June 7, 2018. ~ Ed.

Screen time, in its multiple forms, will be part of your children’s lives at some point. But parents must ask themselves how early and to what extent?

AN EDUCATIONAL EDGE?
Some parents think they’re giving their child an educational edge like Susan who bought her 6-year-old son John an iPad when he was in first grade. She thought, ‘Why not let him get a jump on things?’ John’s school had begun using the devices with younger and younger grades – and his technology teacher had raved about their educational benefits.

Disruptions In Our Internal Body Clock Increase Cancer Risk

While it’s reported that chronic disruptions of circadian rhythms, or internal body clocks, can lead to an increased risk of cancer, the underlying mechanisms by which the disturbances promote tumor growth had been largely unknown until now.

This internal clock, or circadian rhythm, controls when we sleep and wake and plays a role in other biological processes as well, such as temperature regulation and hormone production. Some people have internal body clocks that run longer than 24 hours, or at the very least have slower adapting mechanisms to the traditional daily cycle. Continue reading

Normal PSA Levels by Age: A Valid Way to Assess Prostate Cancer Risk?

Can we count on normal PSA levels by age? Regardless of any PSA reference range for different age groups, there’s actually no ‘normal’ prostate-specific antigen level that guarantees you’re free from prostate cancer.

Other than the fact that prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening is a simple blood test, little else about this cornerstone of prostate cancer screening is simple. That includes the question of whether there are normal PSA levels by age. Generally, your risk of having prostate cancer increases along with your PSA level, and in most men, PSA concentrations rise with age, for various reasons.

Although experts have devised age-adjusted PSA reference ranges to estimate your risk of prostate cancer, there really are no truly normal PSA levels by age. In other words, although PSA can give you an idea of your risk, there’s no guarantee that you have prostate cancer if your PSA rises above a certain mark, nor are you assured of being cancer-free if your PSA remains below a particular threshold.

Top 11 causes of cancer you may have NEVER guessed

This 1965 U.S. postal stamp shows how long we’ve been in the fight

You could wake up every day and be stepping into a total health nightmare while thinking you’re “playing your cards” just fine. We’ve all learned over the past few years that the mainstream media is one huge breadbasket of lies fueled by corporate-driven greed that delivers poison for our minds and our bodies at every turn of the channel, newspaper page or web page. Not only are most Americans “eating” cancer daily, they’re consuming the top 11 causes of cancer ­– all while they either count calories, “carbs” or how many pounds they weigh – none of which will matter when the oncologist sends them home with no cure in sight.

Then people go “march for the cure” at some Susan Komen Foundation gathering while eating Kentucky Fried Chicken and drinking Mike’s Hard Lemonade, both Komen sponsor foods and beverages that contain carcinogens (deep fried processed oils and alcohol, respectively) that aid cancer cell development.

The pH Connection to Colds & Flu – Increase Immunity, Lower Stress

Do you catch colds and flu frequently? Are you susceptible to canker sores, sensitive teeth and sore throat? Are you mentally tired after an hour of desk work?

~ Forewords ~
With all the diseases and the mass hysteria going on over the measles, mumps, chickenpox, etc. I am prompted to once again try to educate readers on how to AVOID them, without those poisonous vaccines being injected into your body.

I write this based on my personal experience – not some Big PHARMA or scientific organization so let’s get that out of the way from the git-go. . . Continue reading

The best herbal remedies for depression

For a condition that affects over 16 million people in the U.S. every year, there’s still a lot that we don’t know about depression. In particular, some people equate extreme sadness to depression. This is not only an oversimplification, it’s also misleading as depression is much more nuanced and complex than simple unhappiness, however, it’s the belief that taking antidepressants could reduce depressive symptoms which causes concern.

The Effects of Stress on the Brain

Life and stress can feel like a package deal but some people are more susceptible to stress than others. The same crisis can cause some to grow and others to break and become sick with illnesses such as depression.

Researchers have shed the light on why.

The answer lies in our genes. The response to stress is determined by a complex interaction between versions of the depression gene and the environment.

The research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, has found that stressful life events interact with certain genes to change the size of the hippocampus, the part of the brain that processes emotions and transfers new information into long-term memories. An effectively functioning hippocampus is critical for learning. Continue reading
