Medical Doctors Recommending Supplements

July 16th, 2012

By Rosalie Wellbright

Medical doctors nationwide are finally waking up and smelling the coffee. A study shows that more and more medical doctors tend to prescribe at least some herbal remedies and that they themselves take supplements. For example, more than half of the cardiologists, orthopedists and dermatologists interviewed said they recommend dietary supplements to their patients, and they also admitted that they take supplements themselves.

What doctors are using

The multivitamin is most often taken by the specialists — 44 percent of all cardiologists, 61 percent of all dermatologists and 57 percent of all orthopedists say they had taken a multivitamin within the past year.

More than 25 percent of physicians in each specialty said they had used omega-3 or fish body oil, while 20 percent of each of the three specialty groups said they had taken a botanical supplement in the past year. Green tea was the most popular.

Health and wellness were the top reasons physicians said they took supplements — including 32 percent of cardiologists, 42 percent of dermatologists and 43 percent of orthopedists.

A growing openness

This research reveals a rapidly growing openness about using herbal remedies in clinical settings.  “Health professionals, including physicians, have an interest in healthy lifestyles and in habits that may contribute to wellness, which may include the use of dietary supplements,” Annette Dickinson, consultant to and past president of the Council for Responsible Nutrition, said in a statement.

The study also showed that cardiologists are more likely to take a nutritional supplement to help their heart, while orthopedic doctors are more likely to take them to help with joint health. Of course I suppose it’s possible that this tendency is just a case of doctors taking their work home with them. Or maybe they’ve been scared silly by patients’ conditions that they see regularly during their rounds and are looking for all the protection they can get. In any case, it’s gratifying to see mainstream physicians waking up to the world of natural health, and I’m cautiously optimistic that they will continue to investigate and adopt more and more herbal medicine practices.

Public health recommendation

More good news is that the American Heart Association is now recommending the use of fish oil supplements by large parts of the population (individuals diagnosed with coronary artery disease and those with high triglyceride levels).

It’s happening here

I recently went through a nasty bout with Celiac Disease, which damages the  finger-like surface projections called villi, in the small intestine (a process known as villous atrophy), and a mainstream doctor recommended aloe vera juice, ginger root and L-glutamate to speed the repair of my damaged villi. I have to report that these remedies are working just fine, and I called my doctor and told her so. Herbal remedies really do work. The ancients knew it, our great grandmothers knew it, and now our doctors are beginning to get the message. Welcome aboard, doctors! Better late than never, as they say.

Radiation in Your Bedroom

July 16th, 2012

Cancer researches at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute in Sweden, writing in the June issue of the journal Pathophysiology, suggest a surprising explanation for a recent predominance of cancers appearing in the left breast. A spring in your mattress may be acting as a radiation antenna.

 

Sleep on the right side, get cancer on the left

In the West, breast cancer occurs 10 percent more often in the left breast than in the right, and skin cancer also develops more on the left side. In Japan, however, this phenomenon is nonexistent. Why this discrepancy between East and West? Swedish scientists may have the answer, and they’ve boiled it down to a formula: sleep on the right side, get cancer on the left. There is a difference, they say, between the types of beds commonly used in Japan and the West, and how radio and television waves interact with this furniture.

 

Futons used in Japan

The researchers point out differences in sleeping habits in Japan and Western countries. Research has shown that both men and women prefer to sleep on their right sides. This preference holds true for both Japan and the West. The beds in Japan, however, are different. The futons used for sleeping in Japan are mattresses placed directly on the bedroom floor, in contrast to the elevated box springs and mattress of beds used in the West.

 

Coiled-metal springs reflect radio waves

In the West, most people use mattresses and box springs that contain coiled-metal springs. These coiled-metal springs reflect radio waves, which decreases the chance that the body will develop cancerous tumors. And because more people sleep on their right sides than their left sides, the left sides of their bodies are further from the coils’ protective effects, hence they get more cancers on the left side. In Japan, many people sleep on futons placed directly on the floor, so there’s no metal to prevent cancer and no difference depending on how you sleep. Moreover, Japan’s TV broadcast system does not use the 87- to 108-megahertz frequency used in Western countries.

Mattress amplifies intensity

Sleeping on a coil-spring mattress is the same as sleeping on an antenna that amplifies the intensity of the broadcast FM/TV radiation. While we sleep our bodies are exposed to the amplified electromagnetic radiation. A wave of electromagnetic radiation envelops our bodies so that the maximum strength of the field develops 75 centimeters above the mattress in the middle of our bodies. When sleeping on the right side, the body’s left side will thereby be exposed to field strength about twice as strong as what the right side absorbs.

 

This Swedish study has met with considerable skepticism, but if it is correct, the solution is simple: Sleep on a futon or replace the metal in your bed with a nonmetallic mattress. Or orient your bed, like an antenna, away from the direction of the local FM/TV transmission tower.

The Magic of Milk Thistle

July 16th, 2012

Milk thistle, a plant belonging to the same family as daisies, has been used by herbalists for many years to protect and strengthen the liver. The ripe seeds are used to make herbal remedies. They contain the antioxidant silymarin, which is thought to be responsible for milk thistle’s helpful effects. And medical research confirms that milk thistle does appear to protect the liver from some poisonous substances and possibly even from liver-damaging viruses, such as hepatitis.

 

A dramatic cure

In Europe, a dramatic use of milk thistle is treating people with mushroom poisoning. For example, an amateur mushroom collector may accidentally eat a poisonous mushroom she believes is edible. Result: mushroom poisoning, which goes straight to the liver and can be fatal. Remedy: milk thistle, administered intravenously.

 

Milk thistle and chemotherapy

Now researchers are studying milk thistle as a way to protect the liver from damage due to chemotherapy. Liver damage is one of the serious downsides of treating cancer with chemo. In a recent study reported in the Wiley Online Library, 50 children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia were randomly selected to receive either chemotherapy with milk thistle or chemotherapy with a placebo.

The group of children receiving milk thistle had significantly lower blood levels of the blood chemical marker that signals liver damage. The group receiving milk thistle had fewer dose reductions of chemotherapy as well. The authors concluded that the study showed a trend toward significant reductions in liver toxicity in the milk thistle group, and that milk thistle did not interfere with the effectiveness of the cancer treatments. Subsequent studies have indicated that milk thistle may prevent growth of genes and enzymes crucial breast cancer development, and may inhibit breast cancer cell growth in cancers already established.

 

Milk thistle for breast cancer

Milk thistle also has an application for breast cancer. There are only a small number of women who have the gene that makes them high risk for breast cancer. Researchers theorize that these high-risk women should not get mammograms, thus subjecting high-risk tissue to radiation. Or on the other hand, if high-risk women do choose chemotherapy it may happen that chemotherapy doses have to be decreased or a drug may have to be stopped altogether. Milk  thistle might be able to prevent or minimize these liver-damaging effects of chemotherapy or the necessity of abandoning it, once undertaken.

 

Milk thistle outlook

The research is promising. There is every indication that milk thistle can and should be used as both a preventive substance as well as a possible therapeutic aid in breast cancer patients.

Don’t Forget Vitamin D

June 13th, 2012

Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and a healthy immune system. The natural way to get vitamin D is from the sun. But the risk of skin cancer and other health problems associated with UV exposure is great, so many people these days are not inclined to spend much time in the sun. And kids no longer choke down that daily teaspoon of vitamin D-rich cod liver oil as many of us did when we were young. Consequently, vitamin D deficiency is on the rise and an old foe from the 19th century has returned: rickets.

 

Rickets on the rise

Rickets a softening of bones due to vitamin D deficiency, common in third world countries but rare until recently in the modern world. In Great Britain last year more than 750 children were hospitalized with this debilitating disease. Rickets is a disease of growing bone that is unique to children and adolescents. It is caused by a failure of osteoid to calcify in a growing individual. Rickets may lead to skeletal deformity and short stature. In females, pelvic distortion from rickets may cause problems with childbirth later in life. Severe rickets has been associated with respiratory failure in children. During the Industrial Revolution, rickets appeared in epidemic form in temperate zones where the pollution from factories blocked the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Thus, rickets was probably the first childhood disease caused by environmental pollution.

 

Alternate sources of vitamin D

If you are not a “sunflower,” the Skin Cancer Foundation suggests you get your recommended daily 600 IU of vitamin D a day from foods such as oily fish, fortified dairy products and cereals and supplements as well. Salmon, tuna and mackerel, as well as fish liver oils are considered to be the best sources. Some vitamin D is also present in beef liver, cheese and egg yolks. Most of these are Vitamin D3. Some mushrooms provide variable amounts of vitamin D2. In the US dairy milk is fortified with vitamin D. Human milk contains little vitamin D, thus infants who are breastfed are at risk for rickets, especially those who receive no oral supplementation and those who have darkly pigmented skin, which blocks penetration of ultraviolet light.

 

Vitamin D for depression

Fear of skin cancer keeps people out of the sun, but paradoxically vitamin D helps guard against breast, prostate and colon cancers, and recently depression has been linked to low vitamin D levels. Exactly how vitamin D and depression may be linked is unclear. Vitamin D deficiency may result in depression, or depression may increase risk for low vitamin D levels. For example, depressed individuals may spend more time indoors, and are less likely to eat a healthy diet and take care of their health, all of which could negatively impact vitamin D levels.

 

How much vitamin D

The British Dietetic Association recommends 4,000 IU daily for adults and teenagers, 1,000 IU for infants and small children and 2,000 IU for everyone in between. Most people in the U.S. and Canada — from age 1 to age 70 — need to consume no more than 600 international units of vitamin D a day to maintain health, a recent report found. People in their 70s and older need as much as 800 IUs. Of course, it’s always best to consult a natural health practitioner to find the level that’s just right for you.

Summer time to Clean out the Filters

June 11th, 2012

Summer time to Clean out the Filters
By Flo Parks

“I’ve got to clean the pool filter today because it is not working as well,” announced my husband a few weeks ago. Hazy water and pockets of gathering dust near the pool steps confirmed his assessment. Curious, I joined in the project to see for the first time the inner workings of that closed box we call the pool filter.

“Bang, bang, bang,” hammered the rubber mallet to open the box. Pulling out four filter sections that were cumbered with cement-looking grey sludge, he carried them to a section of the yard that ran downhill to the fence. Pulling up a chair and attaching the right hose nozzle he began to spray wash the sludge from the panels.

Watching the rivers of grey debris fall away to the powerful rush of the water I could see the solidity of the white plastic begin to emerge from underneath. One by one, my husband patiently restored each panel to its original purity. “Do you see how this section has been torn? That is the place where the filter was leaking. That small tear and all of this accumulation has made it difficult for the filter to do its work. When I get this stuff off and replace the torn panel it will work great and you’ll see the water looking crystal clear. You’ll be surprised.” “How often do you do this,” I asked? “Twice a year, usually is enough.” He answered.

It struck me in that moment that Dr. Clark’s liver cleanse is something to do twice a year for people without health issues. Imagining the grey sludge leaving the pool filters I could see first hand how filters do get cumbered by what they filter out and they either need to be replaced or cleaned up to maximize their operation.

Other items in our lives remind us of the need to clean out filters. The newsletter with our gas and electric bill reminded us that summertime is a good time to pull the refrigerator away from the wall to dust off the coils so they can continue to work optimally. A tag on my car reminds me of the date or the mileage at which I should take the car in for a refreshing of the oil filter system. The air-conditioning system filters want to be replaced or washed off so they can do the work more easily.

Imagine if we never changed the oil in our car or cleaned the filters of our pools. The real cost of not doing these basic maintenance items is increased wear and tear and ultimately premature replacement.

I imagined my little green cholesterol stones filling up the bile ducts of my liver. My last liver cleanse was about a year ago. Whoa, I had forgotten my intention to keep it up every six months. Time to check my supplies of olive oil, Epsom salts, grapefruit, and Black Walnut hull tincture. I want to love my liver in this very practical way.

Distilled Vinegar VS Organic Whole Apple Cider Vinegar

May 18th, 2012

Apple cider vinegar is a wonderful time honored tonic that helps digestion, improves circulation and much more. For hundreds of years, folk medicine practitioners have recommended daily doses of apple cider vinegar, not just for specific ills, but moreover for general health. And today, laboratory analysis verifies the antibacterial and antiseptic properties of vinegar. Many of the old-time uses are just as applicable now as they were centuries ago.

History of Vinegar
Historically speaking, vinegar was discovered when it was first learned that wine exposed to the air would turn sour, thereby creating vinegar. In 400 BC Hypocrites, the father of medicine, treated patients with vinegar, making it one of the world’s first medicines. Throughout biblical times, vinegar was successfully used to treat infections and wounds. For centuries medical textbooks have listed various ways to use vinegar.

Hard Cider in Colonial Times
In America, back in colonial times, apple cider, not wine, was the popular beverage. But the apple cider of the colonists was not the sweet cider you buy in the store. It was hard cider, made from organically grown apples, crushed and aged in oaken barrels, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and alcoholic. Everyone in those days drank huge quantities of hard cider, but some of the cider was allowed to continue to ferment until all the sugars were dissipated. The result: pure organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Many herbalists recommend the use of raw, unpasteurized, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar as an important dietary ingredient for humans, farm animals and pets. Apple cider vinegar reduces common infections, improves stamina, prevents muscle fatigue after exercise, increases resistance to disease and protects against food poisoning. Apple cider vinegar is rich in the vitamins, minerals and trace elements found in apples, especially potassium. It normalizes acid levels [pH] in the stomach, improves digestion and the assimilation of nutrients, helps cure constipation, alleviates some of the symptoms of arthritis and helps prevent bladder stones and urinary tract infections.

Dr. Clark’s View On Vinegar
Dr. Clark recommended we “use only white distilled vinegar, even though it lacks potassium, aroma and popularity. Using a variety of honeys can make up for the need to vary the flavor. Get orange blossom, linden blossom, buckwheat, wildflower, and sage honey, besides clover blossom.”

“Using a lemon or vinegar and honey beverage helps with digestion although this provides citric or acetic acid, not hydrochloric. These acids are completely metabolized so they don’t add to the body acid level. But the fact that it is not hydrochloric means that it can’t kill bacteria and parasites in the stomach like regular hydrochloric acid could.”

Dr. Clark wrote this about Vinegar
Bones are not made of calcium alone. Magnesium is essential. Since magnesium is more soluble and easy to assimilate than calcium, the tablet form (magnesium oxide, 300 mg, see Sources) will do. If you are not absorbing the magnesium it will stay in your intestine and act as a laxative. If this happens acidify your stomach during meals: always add fresh lemon, vinegar, or vitamin C to your food or drink to help digest milk and dissolve minerals for you. Boron (3 mg. once a day) and manganese (15 mg. once a day) are additional bone hardeners.

Cloth diapers should be sterilized not bleached. Use the hottest water your laundry system is capable of producing. Add ½ cup borax for the washing process. If you have homemade Lugol’s iodine (made by your pharmacist or by yourself, see Recipes), add a tsp. to the wash or rinse. Vinegar is a yeast inhibitor, add it to the rinse. Dry the diapers at the hottest setting. Dry to kill. Kill all the yeast spores in the diapers.

Lemon juice or vinegar can be put in certain foods but the most reliable way to get it into the diet is to put 1 tablespoon into the water glass along with a teaspoon of honey. This gives the water a “sweet and sour” flavor, enough to make it interesting throughout the meal. The fresh lemon juice or white distilled vinegar and a honey dispenser that is easy to use should always be on the table. Bring these two items to your loved one at the “home” if it cannot be provided regularly and reliably. Pop in at mealtime to check up on it. Powdered vitamin C (¼ tsp.) is another useful acid if the first two are not effective enough.

The lemon and honey habit, alone, can add years (healthier years) to an elderly person. The extra acid taken with lunch and supper (the stomach has its own best supply of acid in the morning, for breakfast) improves overall digestion and helps dissolve the calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, and other minerals in the food so they can be absorbed.

The habit of using vinegar and honey in water as a beverage was made famous by Dr. Jarvis in his book Folk Medicine, circa 1960. He recommended apple cider vinegar for its extra potassium. In those days, vinegar was made of good apples. Now, all the regular vinegars have mold in them. The toxin, patulin, in moldy apples has been carefully studied by scientists. It taints the vinegar as well as apple juice and concentrate made from them. I have not tested patulin to see if it can be detoxified by vitamin C. We must use only white distilled vinegar, even though it lacks potassium, aroma and popularity. Using a variety of honeys can make up for the need to vary the flavor. Get orange blossom, linden blossom, buckwheat, wildflower, and sage honey, besides clover blossom.

We must use only white distilled vinegar, even though it lacks potassium, aroma and popularity. Using a variety of honeys can make up for the need to vary the flavor. Get orange blossom, linden blossom, buckwheat, wildflower, and sage honey, besides clover blossom.

But honey is not perfect food. It usually has ergot mold, a very serious toxin. To detoxify the ergot, you simply add vitamin C to the honey as soon as it arrives from the supermarket. This gives it plenty of time to react with the ergot before you eat it. Bring your “fixed” honeys to the home.

If your elderly loved one has not tolerated milk in years, start with the vinegar and honey beverage, or lemon and honey, and be patient until that is accepted. Then add only ¼ cup milk to the day’s diet, (in the morning, on homemade cereal). Go up very gradually and only when digestion allows it.

Adding lemon or vinegar (white distilled) and 1 tsp. honey is probably the best way to stimulate both thirst and appetite.

The drinking water should always have a little vitamin C, lemon juice or vinegar added, and 1 tsp. honey if desired.

Use homemade salad dressing with a preference for oil and vinegar styles.

Soup should be homemade from scratch. Add bones and 1 tbs. vinegar (white distilled) or a tomato to the kettle to ensure some calcium leaches out of the bones.

The water may be plain if there was vinegar in the soup.

A common mold found on bread, nuts and fruit and in beer, apple cider vinegar and syrups, produces aflatoxin. This is what prevents you from detoxifying tiny bits of propyl alcohol that get into your body!

Keep moldy fruit out of the refrigerator where the spores can spread. Use only white distilled vinegar.

Vitamin C helps your body detoxify all the mold toxins I have tested, including aflatoxin.

GMO HAS GOT TO GO

April 26th, 2012

GMO HAS GOT TO GO

Genetically modified produce has made its way into approximately 80 percent of US-processed grocery store items, and up to 90 percent of several US-grown crops are grown with genetically engineered seed. So if you live in the United States, you’ve been exposed to GMO’d foods, probably without your knowledge.

What are genetically-modified foods

The term GM foods or GMOs (genetically-modified organisms) is most commonly used to refer to crop plants created for human or animal consumption using the latest molecular biology techniques. These plants have been modified in the laboratory to enhance desired traits such as increased resistance to herbicides or improved nutritional content. The enhancement of desired traits has traditionally been undertaken through breeding, but conventional plant breeding methods can be very time consuming and are often not very accurate. Genetic engineering, on the other hand, can create plants with the exact desired trait very rapidly and with great accuracy. For example, plant geneticists can isolate a gene responsible for drought tolerance and insert that gene into a different plant. The new genetically-modified plant will gain drought tolerance as well. Not only can genes be transferred from one plant to another, but genes from non-plant organisms also can be used.

Danger to environment and health

Environmental activists, religious organizations, public interest groups, professional associations and other scientists and government officials have all raised concerns about GM foods, and criticized agribusiness for pursuing profit without concern for potential hazards, and the government for failing to exercise adequate regulatory oversight. It seems that everyone has a strong opinion about GM foods. Even the Vatican19 and the Prince of Wales20 have expressed their opinions. Most concerns about GM foods fall into three categories: environmental hazards, human health risks, and economic concerns.

GMO banned in Hungary

Genetically engineered seeds are banned in Hungary and in several other European countries, including Germany and Ireland. Peru is also following suit and has passed a law banning genetically modified ingredients within the nation for 10 years. Drastic? Maybe not. GMO’d crops simply cannot be contained, and inevitably will contaminate the environment with their DNA. It gets worse. Nearly all GMO’d crops are designed with genes to resist a powerful herbicide called Round Up or glyphosate, a potentially dangerous chemical.

Designer genes

Upwards of 65 percent of U.S. corn crops contain a special gene added that encourages them to produce a potent insecticide that kills bugs dead: Bt-toxin, produced from Bacillus thuringiensis bacteria. Genetic engineers remove the gene that produces the Bt in bacteria and insert it into the DNA of corn (and cotton) plants. They claim that Bt-toxin is quickly destroyed in human stomachs, and that even if it survives, it won’t cause reactions in humans or mammals. But recent studies show that Bt toxin readily passes into the human bloodstream and animal studies have already shown that Bt-toxin does in fact cause health effects in animals.

Bt-toxin attacks the immune system

Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology, says: “Mice fed natural Bt-toxin showed significant immune responses and caused them to become sensitive to other formerly harmless compounds. This suggests that Bt-toxin might make a person allergic to a wide range of substances. Farm workers and others have also had reactions to natural Bt-toxin, and authorities acknowledge that people with compromised immune systems or preexisting allergies may be particularly susceptible to the effects of Bt.”

Already prevalent in humans

Moreover, it now appears that Cry1Ab, a specific type of Bt toxin from GMO’d corn, is already prevalent in humans. After testing 69 pregnant and non-pregnant women who were eating a typical Canadian diet (which included foods such as GMO’d soy, corn and potatoes), researchers found Bt toxin in:

* 93 percent of maternal blood samples

* 80 percent of fetal blood samples

* 67 percent of non-pregnant women blood samples

It’s about the money

A large part of the problem, and one of the reasons why the United States has not taken a precautionary stance the way other countries have, is that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are heavily influenced by biotech giant Monsanto. In the first quarter of 2011 alone, Monsanto spent $1.4 million on lobbying the federal government — and this was a drop from a year earlier, when they spent $2.5 million during the same quarter.

What you can do

Get involved. Talk to organic producers and stores and ask them to actively support the California Ballot. It may be the only chance we have to label genetically engineered foods. Distribute the Non-GMO Shopping Guide to help consumers like you identify and avoid foods with GMOs. Look for products (including organic products) that feature the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal to be sure that at-risk ingredients have been tested for GMO content. You can also join the Non-GMO Project on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter.

Buy organic

In the meantime, the simplest way to avoid GMO’d foods is to buy whole, certified organic foods. By definition, foods that are certified organic must never intentionally use GM organisms, must be produced without artificial pesticides and fertilizers and come from an animal reared without the routine use of antibiotics, growth promoters or other drugs. Additionally, grass-fed beef will not have been fed GMO’d corn feed, although now that GM alfalfa is approved, grass-fed will not always mean GMO free.

GREEN Black Walnut Hull Tincture

April 26th, 2012

No one makes a higher quality Black Walnut Hull tincture than Dr. Clark Store.

Dr. Hulda Clark always placed an enormous emphasis on the Black Walnut Hull Tincture being green at the time of consumption. She personally trained and monitored our tincture making process. Her son, Geoff Clark developed a special method to always ensure the quality of the Green Tincture. We follow his method in detail and are proud to say that we have perfected it.

In fact laboratory tests show that our tincture measures up to 10 times the amount of Juglone due to the freshness of our GREEN hulls. As a result, WE guarantee it to be green, just like Dr. Clark wanted it!

Green Black Walnut Comparison

NOTE: Air is the enemy of the tincture because it causes oxidation and will turn the tincture brown. In order to prevent oxidation we recommend that once the bottle is opened you re-bottle the tincture into1/2oz portions, filling each 1/2 oz bottle to the brim to eliminate air becoming trapped inside. The air will cause the tincture to oxidize and turn brown and loose its potency quickly. That is why when you purchase our tincture you will find the bottles filled to the top. You always get a little extra when you purchase from Dr. Clark Store.

Don’t forget the Black Walnut Tincture should be GREEN!


Dear Customer Service,

Just had to tell you how much my taking Black Walnut Blend along with vitamin C has already been a God sent for my reflux problem. I have been taking it for less than a month and it has made such a dramatic difference in my over 30 year problem, I just had to let you know. Pray it can help others that suffer with the same problem.

Most satisfied customer,

Elena Ruffino

Spice Up Your Life

January 11th, 2012

Spice Up Your Life

Cough syrup is under attack, and rightly so. Parents’ organizations have been concerned about the hallucinogen dextromethorphan (DM), an ingredient in several popular over the counter cough remedies, which has created a subculture of teens and preteens who get high on cough medicine. Moreover a recent study published in the journal Pediatrics reported that neither dextromethorphan nor diphenhydramine (another popular ingredient) was more effective than placebo in improving the nighttime cough or sleep of 100 youngsters with upper-respiratory infections.

Setting limits

The American College of Chest Physicians has issued guidelines strongly urging that over-the-counter cough and cold medications not be used for children younger than 14. The FDA warned parents not to give non-prescription cough and cold medicines to children under two years of age.

A better alternative

Spice Syrup adds plant oils to a maple syrup base, specifically clove bud oil, coriander oil, peppermint oil, nutmeg oil, white thyme oil, and fennel oil. All of these oils possess powerful anti-bacterial properties, and are effective against most of the 25 strains of bacteria. The bottom line is that many plant oils are better than prescription antibiotics in terms of efficacy, safety, and resistance. The maple syrup is soothing, and the plant oils kill bacteria. But even if you are not coughing, the formula is very effective for sore throats and germ-caused bad breath. In the stomach safe healthy Spice Syrup combats food poisoning from Salmonella and in the intestine it kills parasites. Spice Syrup can also be applied topically as a disinfectant on cuts, or on a fungal infection.

How germs spread

The two main ways that germs are spread are: (1) by contact, (2) in a droplet or through very small remains of droplets that float in the air. Contact transmission is the most common way that germs are spread. Droplet transmission happens when germs are spread in a tiny drop of liquid. When a person talks, sings, coughs or sneezes, thousands of invisible droplets are created. These often germ-laden droplets can be broadcast as far as three feet through the air from the person who is doing the sneezing. The droplets may land in another person’s eyes, nose or mouth. But it doesn’t end there. The invisible droplets can be carried by wind for hundreds, even thousands of miles.

Safe healthy Spice Syrup

The point is, you don’t have to be near the person who is sneezing or coughing. That’s why it’s important to take Spice Syrup, not just when you have a cold or a cough, but at the very first sign of a sore throat or a cold. Be attentive, act quickly and you will nip a cold in the bud. Choose Spice Syrup and you have a powerful, safe, proven, protection against illness. As opposed to the big drug companies’ commercial brands, mostly ineffective and many of which are laced with the hallucinogenic drug, dextromethoriphan.

War on Cancer

September 26th, 2011

The Cancer Research Gravy Train

The American people, desperate for a cancer cure, contribute millions of dollars each year to the American Cancer Society. Sadly, only about 15 percent of this money goes directly into programs for cancer patients. The lion’s share goes to overhead and drug research, which means that the American Cancer Society is in fact a gravy train for research facilities, pharmaceutical companies, bureaucrats and lobbyists.

 

False claims of progress

Claims of progress in the fight against cancer are false, and the statistics are skewed. The Cancer Establishment’s statistics include many people with benign diseases, and patients in remission for more than five years are listed as cured, even though a large percentage of these supposedly cured patients will die from cancer, or ironically, from toxic therapies, after the five years.

 

Lead-time Bias

Lead-time is the length of time between the point at which a cancer is detected by current technology and the point at which it was previously have been clinically detected using yesterdays technology. Lead-time bias accounts for the majority of the illusory “improvement” seen over the last few decades in treating breast, prostate, and a few other kinds of cancer. Lead-time bias makes the statistics look much better because the sooner you find the cancer the longer the patient survives after the discovery has been made.

 

Toxic cures

A striking example of a toxic therapy is the breast cancer drug Tamoxifen, a widely prescribed drug for prevention of cancer in at risk women and treating existing cancers. Unfortunately Tamoxifen is highly carcinogenic itself, causing high incidences of uterine and liver cancer not only in already ill women, but also in healthy women who are urged to take Tamoxifen for prevention.

 

Petrochemical poisoning

Runaway cancer rates correspond precisely to the rise of the petrochemical industry after the Second World War, when massive pesticide use promised better, cleaner yields of food to feed the growing masses. Between 1940 and 1990, total annual production of synthetic agricultural chemicals went from 1 billion to over 600 billion pounds. Despite this horrendous cancer epidemic, the Cancer Establishment has shown no inclination to focus on the real culprits, namely poor diet and the poisoning of the planet by the petrochemical industries. Instead of preventing disaster, the focus stays on highly profitable and toxic therapies such as Tamoxifen.

 

Time to think outside of the box

Since finding the cure for cancer would put the pharmaceutical industry out of business and would end the careers of countless doctors and so called researchers, it is in their interest suppress all knowledge of real, proven cancer cures that do exist and have existed for thousands of years. But we don’t necessarily have to go along with that. We don’t have to continue to be Big Pharma’s willing puppets. It’s time to think outside of the box. Instead of supporting the American Cancer Society, you can support research dealing with alternative medicine and folk wisdom. Because it is in precisely this direction that we must turn if we are to find the long-awaited cure for cancer.
