Practical Educational Overview of Holistic Health & Wellness

"First Do No Harm"~Hippocrates

The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. ~Thomas Edison

Elimination of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease. The fastest way to restore wellness is to stop putting into the body the things that have caused the physical problem to develop in the first place, and then give the body the nutrients it needs to repair and rebuild itself. The holistic approach treats the whole person, ignites the body's internal healing force and stimulates the body's natural abilities to heal itself.

Oriented to self care, this free educational web site is dedicated to help promote natural health for humans and their animals

The incredible Healing Powers of Living (Raw) Foods and Juices

Alicia McWatters, Ph.D. - "Fresh, raw foods contain the highest level of enzymes. Enzymes are the catalyst for the hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body. Cooked foods and dry convenient diets have been denatured and are devoid of enzymes- life-promoting elements. While they may maintain life they do not promote optimum health or longevity!" 

The fastest way to restore wellness is to stop putting into the body the things that have caused the physical problem to develop in the first place, and then give the body the nutrients it needs to repair and rebuild itself. The body is self-healing when the infraction is stopped and proper nutrients provided. 

Most human illnesses and diseases are due to a deficiency of vital nutrients. When you supply your body with the proper nutrients, in a form that your body can use, it knows how to repair itself."   The incredible Healing Powers of Living (Raw) Foods and Juices
 

Oils that can save your life! - (omega 3 fatty acids)

Search Shirley's Wellness Cafe Despite all the concern about fat in our diet, the body does require fat to function. The problem is that most people are getting the wrong kinds of fats in their diet and are lacking the good fats in their diets. 

The human body cannot function properly without two polyunsaturated fats - linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid. These fatty acids, which are found in Flaxseed Oil are truly to normal cell structure and body function. Flaxseed may prove useful in the nutritional management of patients with autoimmune diseases.

Have you heard about Urine Therapy?

"You may think that when it comes to alternative health therapies you've heard it all. But there is one natural therapy you've probably never heard of ---even though its one of the most powerful, most researched and most medically proven natural cures ever discovered. For almost the entire course of the 20th century, unknown to the public, doctors and medical researchers have been proving in both laboratory and clinical testing that our own urine is an enormous source of vital nutrients, vitamins, hormones, enzymes and critical antibodies that cannot be duplicated or derived from any other source. They use urine for healing cancer, heart disease, allergies, auto-immune diseases, diabetes, asthma, infertility, infections, wounds and on and on -- yet we're taught that urine is a toxic waste product. This discrepancy between the medical truth and the public information regarding urine is ludicrous and, as the news releases you've just read demonstrate, can mean the difference between life and death to you and to your loved ones." Martha Christy

 

What is Homeopathy?

Historically, homeopathy has proven many times to be more effective than allopathic medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease, with risk of harmful side effects. In a U.S. cholera outbreak in 1849, allopathic medicine saw a 48-60% death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate of only 3%. Roughly similar statistics still hold true for cholera today. Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically after exposure had a 100% success rate-none of the treated caught the disease.

Homeopathy is one of the fastest-growing alternative medicines available today for people, babies and animals. By triggering the body's own self-healing abilities, homeopathic remedies are a safe and effective way to treat everyday ailments as well as acute and chronic symptoms of mind and body and are winning more converts every day.

 

The many illnesses, symptoms and disorders of Gulf War Syndrome

Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) is not imagined as the U.S. Dept of Defense has alleged for the past 5 years while refusing proper medical care and benefits to the vets and their families. To date GWS affects well over 160,000 of the Gulf War veterans. This ever-growing statistic does not include the secondary infectees: the wives, children, other family members, friends or associates who are sick, disabled, dying or dead. Whole families are now ill. Their babies are being born with severe congenital defects and deformities, including being born with one or more missing limbs, missing an eye or ear or organs, and blood disorders. Sixty seven percent of babies born to Gulf War vets are affected, and over half of all babies born in Iraq since the war are affected. Even their pets are coming down with the GWS illnesses and dying. Iraq is also reporting alarmingly high increases in rare and unknown diseases, primarily in their children. Kuwait is also affected, as are the British veterans of the Gulf War. Learn about homeopathic and other Natural Treatment for the relief of Gulf War Syndrome and Illnesses
 

 
Optimum Health Through Natural Hygiene

The science of Natural Hygiene is about enhancing physical, emotional and mental well-being through education. It provides us with a simple, straightforward system for regaining and maintaining superb human health and beauty. Hygiene is personally empowering and liberating. It teaches independence and rational action. It banishes fear and ignorance regarding human health and how to keep it.  Ultimately it is about freedom. 

Natural Hygiene holds that the one cause of all disease is the toxic saturation at the cellular level of the bodily tissues, bloodstream, and fluids brought on by the depletion of Nerve Energy reserves through wrong living habits. This state of self-poisioning is alternately termed "Auto-Intoxication," "Toxicosis," and "Toxemia."

Basic Healing Principles

The body has an innate capacity to heal itself. Self-healing can only occur once the cause of the illness has been eliminated. Elimination of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease. Physicians and surgeons palliate symptoms instead of removing causes. Instead of suppressing individual symptoms, holistic and naturopathic medicine addresses the whole person, finds out why the body is vulnerable to sickness, and seek to correct the underlying cause of disease. By rebuilding immunity, health is naturally restored and disease disappears. If health and immunity are thereafter conscientiously maintained,the individual is no longer vulnerable to disease.
 

What Exactly is a Healing Crisis?

As you move toward better health with natural healing programs and better nutrition, healing begins to occur. As part of the healing process the body will begin to discard toxic residues which have built up in your body over the years. The healing process usually does not occur without repercussions. During the initial phase of healing, as your body begins to clean house, (detoxify) and your vital energy begins to repair and rebuild internal organs, you may experience headache, uneasiness, flu like symptoms and fatigue.

"There are two obstacles to vibrant health and longevity: ignorance and complacency." -- World Health Organization --  Selling Sickness

Robert A. Mendelsohn, MD - "I believe my generation of doctors will be remembered for two things: the miracles that turned to mayhem, such as penicillin and cortisone, and for the millions of mutilations which are ceremoniously (and totally unnecessarily) carried out every year in operating rooms."

Why are a growing number of parents and health care professionals around the world questioning vaccination? 

The controversy stems from the thousands of deaths and permanent disabilities attributed to vaccination annually, as well as the many published medical studies, government statistics, congressional testimonies, and other credible sources that directly contradict commonly held assumptions about vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Congressman is calling for criminal penalties for any government agency that knew about the dangers of thimerosal (mecury) in vaccines and did nothing to protect American children. Congressman Dan Burton (R-Indiana) during Congressional Hearing: "You mean to tell me that since 1929, we've been using Thimerosal, and the only  test that you know of is from 1929, and every one of those people had mennigitis, and they all died?" For nearly an hour, Burton repeatedly asked FDA and CDC officials what they knew and when they knew it. 

Russell L. Blaylock MD Neurosurgeon  - "Most have at least heard about the controversy surrounding possible harmful effects of some of the vaccines. What is less well known is that even greater dangers exist than are being conveyed to the general public. Much of this information is buried in highly technical scientific journals beyond the reach and understanding of the average person. Of special concern is the relationship between vaccine policy, autism and the Gulf War Syndrome. I shall use the Gulf War Syndrome as an example of a vaccine policy gone berserk, while including discussions of other dangers as well."   Learn more...

Therapeutic Fasting and Internal Cleansing

The first step in anyones health program is to clean and open up all the elimination organs. Weak and congested liver, gallbladder, bowels or kidneys can be the cause of many chronic health problems by causing toxic and putrid waste to be absorbed into the rest of our system. Over the course of time, this effects the functioning of every cell and organ in our body. It poisons the blood, lymphatic system, nervous system and brain, while clogging up the heart, vascular system, lungs and sinuses. 

Many times the real cause behind sickness and disease is this retention and reabsorption of these toxic wastes.Fasting is the world's most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

 

The Immune System: The body's defense department

Your immune system is your bodyguard. It works both pro-actively and protectively to shield you from anything in your world that threatens your life and limb. The immune system is not responsive to drugs for healing. By rebuilding immunity, health is naturally restored and disease disappears. If health and immunity are thereafter conscientiously maintained, the individual is no longer vulnerable to disease. According t o Dr. George C Pack, MD, a cancer specialist at Cornell medical School, almost everyone has cancer cells present at times in our bodies. If our immune system is working properly, these cells are killed or reabsorbed by our defense system before they begin to grow and threaten our health. The only real defense against cancer is the immune system. Everyone gets cancer every day but if the immune system is where it should be those cancer cells are eliminated and we never know it.

 

Healing with Flowers, Herbs and Other Natural Remedies

"Plants, the oldest form of medicine, have the power to supply the bodies’ life force with the energies it needs to restore and maintain health" -Michael Tierra 

Alternatives To AntibioticsThe reason that a particular herb "knows" what body system/organ to heal, is because its specific resonance matches perfectly with and is guided to that system or organ with a matching resonance. It's a case of like attracts like. The body's wisdom can then take the combination of phytochemicals contained in the herb and use it to heal the body.

Detoxification for Optimum Health 

Chemicals and toxins accumulate in fat tissue and are the primary cause of illness, disease and obesity. Substances that are toxic to our bodies come at us from all directions: the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the cleaning products we use, and the metabolic waste produced inside us. Toxins build-up in the body contribute to premature aging and chronic and degenerative diseases. 

Studies have discovered various chemicals from our foods and environment that indicate man contributes 700,000 tons of pollutants into the air every day, ranging from everyday household cleaners to cosmetics and hair dyes.  Detoxification comes in many forms and refers to many different programs that cleanse the body of toxins. Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin.

Dr. Mercola - "We can solve well over 90% of the all chronic diseases with simple, inexpensive natural therapies. Following the eating plan and radically reducing grain and sugar intake while optimizingomega 6:3 fat ratio will likely reduce over 50% of the health problems Americans currently experience. I know this is true because I have successfully treated many thousands of patients from all over the country with these techniques."

Ghandi - "Though I have had two serious illnesses in my life, I believe that man has little need to drug himself. 999 cases out of a thousand can be brought round by means of a well-regulated diet, water and earth treatment and similar household remedies."

Thomas Bige MD - "Lack of knowledge about how your body functions and ignoring its needs are major contributing factors to ill-health. You can no longer afford to neglect the important duty of looking after your most valuable asset, your own health."

Dr. Joel Robbins - "Disease or "dis-ease" is defined as a lack of health. Disease results when any cell is not functioning 100% of its designed duty whether due to trauma, toxicity, lack of communication or a combination thereof. Disease is due to stress. Disease is nothing more than the body responding to the wrong we have done to it. It is the body's attempt at keeping us alive in response to the wrongs we have inflicted on our bodies. If the body has the intelligence to produce a disease, it is capable of reversing the process to return to health once the cause is removed."

The Role of Glutathione GSH in Health and Disease

Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD  - “Your life depends on glutathione. Without it, your cells would disintegrate from unrestrained oxidation, your body would have little resistance to bacteria, viruses and cancer, and your liver would shrivel up from the eventual accumulation of toxins. Glutathione levels also diminish as we age and many diseases normally associated with aging have been linked to glutathione deficiency. Clinical evidence links low glutathione levels to the most common illnesses of our time as well as newly emerging diseases. Because all other antioxidants depend upon the presence of glutathione to function properly, scientists call it ‘the master antioxidant’.Healthy people also benefit from elevated glutathione levels through an enhanced ability to fight off toxins, infectious disease, pre-cancerous cells and the aging process itself. Many world-class athletes are discovering that well-maintained glutathione levels give them the edge over their competitors, bringing greater strength and endurance, decreased recovery time from injury, less muscle pain and fatigue, and muscle-promoting activity.” 

Glutathione is continuously defending our body against attacks from disease, toxins, poisons, viruses, pollutants, radiation and oxidative stress. Without Glutathione our liver would soon become overwhelmed with the accumulation of toxins, resulting in organ failure and death. more...

 
Diabetes Deadly Deception

Greed and dishonest science have promoted a lucrative worldwide epidemic of diabetes that honesty and good science can quickly reverse by naturally restoring the body's blood-sugar control mechanism. For 40 years, medical research has consistently shown with increasing clarity that diabetes is a degenerative disease directly caused by an engineered food supply that is focused on profit instead of health. Although the diligent can readily glean this information from a wealth of medical research literature, it is generally otherwise unavailable. 

If you are an American diabetic, your physician will never tell you that most cases of diabetes are curable. Diabetes, in its modern epidemic form, is a curable disease and has been for at least 40 years.  Learn more

Alternative Cancer Therapy Programs  (For People and Animals) 

Only orthodox cancer treatments - surgery, radiation and chemotherapy -(cutting, burning and poisoning) are "scientific" and presumably not to be questioned. But there is hope with alternative to modalities of surgery, radiation and toxic drugs. 

Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D. - "Conventional cancer therapy is so toxic and dehumanizing that I fear it far more than I fear death from cancer. We know that conventional therapy doesn't work--if it did, you would not fear cancer any more than you fear pneumonia. It is the utter lack of certainty as to the outcome of conventional treatment that virtually screams for more freedom of choice in the area of cancer therapy."

Glyconutrients (saccharides)  a missing link in the modern diet 

Scientists have recently discovered that our modern diet is missing some very vital nutrients, and surprisingly enough, these missing nutrients are sugars, glyconutrients. The Greek word "Glyco" means "Sugar". Most people think of sugar as being bad for you. However, there are actually TWO kinds of sugars. One is the refined or "extracellular" sugars which have been long associated with human disease. The other sugars are "intracellular" which can be found in fruits and vegetables and provide the body with nutrition it needs. There are over 20,000 studies conducted annually on glycoforms alone. 

 "Glyconutritionals could be one of the greatest nutritional discoveries of the 20th century. Unfortunately, physicians and many others in the field of health care know very little or nothing about them, even though there is abundant peer-reviewed scientific validation as to their efficacy in supporting the body's normal functions of recovery from chronic diseased conditions."  Dr. Benjamin Solomon Carson Sr.

 

Steroids and Antibiotics Side Effects and Health Hazards 

Doctors tell you that steroids (cortisone, prednisone) only cause side effects after many years. But new research shows that permanent damage is immediate and devastating. Studies show that steroids can cause permanent, debilitating effects after a single dosage.  Inflammation contributes to more pain, disease, and disability than any other condition. Unfortunately, many people unwittingly eat foods that greatly contribute to inflammation.

Professor Graham Bell, from McGill University in Canada warns that the new antibiotics pose "a serious and unprecedented" risk to public health. The reappearance of highly infectious bacteria is caused in part by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics.

Profound Life-Giving Properties of Marine Phytoplankton

The secrets of the sea are miracles waiting to be discovered by medical science.  Seawater contains every mineral and trace mineral known, in organic form and in the proper ratios needed by human tissues. Dr. René Quinton, French biologist, was the first person to discern and to investigate the similarity between sea water and mammalian lymph and blood plasma systems. In one experiment, René Quinton and his medical team drained a dog of all of its blood and replaced it with isotonic (diluted) seawater. The dog should have died immediately, one would think, but the dog lived. On day two after the transfusion, 50% of the blood components had reappeared. By day four, almost 100% of the missing blood components were restored in what appeared to be proof of biological transmutation. Not only did the blood completely regenerate, but soon after the procedure the dog bounced around like a puppy with greater vitality than before, and it lived for many years afterwards.

Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD,  from the Tennant Institute of Integrative Medicine, explains that the micronutrients and electrolytes in marine phytoplankton are exactly what human cell membranes need to carry out their metabolism. Not surprisingly, the composition of human plasma, or fluid surrounding cell membranes, is similar to that of sea water. For three billion years Marine Phytoplankton has supported virtually all living creatures in the Ocean. It contains  a unique combination of life sustaining nutrients including; Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA), protein, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and trace elements. more

 

Magnesium Impact on Health and Vitality

Magnesium is nothing short of a miracle mineral in its healing effect on a wide range of diseases as well as in its ability to rejuvenate the aging body. We know that it is essential for many enzyme reactions, especially in regard to cellular energy production, for the health of the brain and nervous system, for healthy teeth and bones and is also an impressive infection fighter. 

A french doctor, A. Neveu, cured several diphtheria patients with magnesium chloride within two days. He also published 15 cases of poliomyelitis that were cured within days if treatment was started immediately, or within months if paralysis had already progressed. Neveu also found magnesium chloride effective with asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and emphysema; pharyngitis, tonsillitis, hoarseness, common cold, influenza, whooping cough, measles, rubella, mumps, scarlet fever; poisoning, gastro-enteritis, boils, abscesses, whitlow, infected wounds and osteomyelitis.

In more recent years Dr Vergini and others have confirmed these earlier results and have added more diseases to the list of successful uses: acute asthma attacks, shock, tetanus, herpes zoster, acute and chronic conjunctivitis, optic neuritis, rheumatic diseases, many allergic diseases, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and beneficial effects in cancer therapy. In all of these cases magnesium chloride had been used and gave much better results than other magnesium compounds.  more

Healing Clay

Clay is renowned to have many uses in promoting health in plants, animals and humans. The Native Americans call it "Ee-Wah-Kee" meaning "The-Mud-That-Heals". The Amargosians (predecessors to the Aztecs ), the Aborigines, and natives of Mexico and South America all recognized the benefit of clays. " "...healing mud not only draws toxic material out of the body if taken internally, but also reduces pain and infection in open wounds on both humans and animals." 

Dr. Cohen - "In addition to the role it plays as a potent detoxifier, “Calcium Montmorillonite Clay” has also been used extensively in the treatment of pain, open wounds, colitis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, intestinal problems, acne, anemia, and a variety of other health issues. Clay not only cures minor problems, such as diarrhea and constipation through local application; it acts on all the organs—on the whole organism.  Everything unhealthy, that emits negative radiations is irresistibly attracted to clay and becomes subject to immediate elimination." more...

The Miraculous Health Benefits of Earth's Most Essential Resource

No matter what the specific health or fitness goal, one cannot achieve the maximum benefit from any health program without drinking the right kind of water in the proper amount. All experts agree, that next to the air we breathe, water is the most important thing we will ever put in our bodies. It is surprising that so much time and money is being spent on supplements, organic foods and natural remedies but little attention is given to the quality and effect of the water with which those items are taken.

    Toxic Overload The Ugly Side of Cosmetics, Body/Skin Care Products

    An environmental health specialist at Stirling University in Scotland, Baillie-Hamilton details how toxins may be linked to dozens of serious health problems, including immune system diseases, neurological disorders, digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, cardio-vascular diseases, cancer, hyper-sensitivity, obesity, musculoskeletal disorders and childhood health problems. "These chemicals are simply not going to go away,"  Institute reports "pesticides are a likely cause of immune suppression for millions of people throughout the world" and that 25% of the chemicals in the environment are neurotoxins linked to increased incidence of brain disease. 

    Make-up and body care products have been linked to allergic reactions, birth defects, and even cancer. It is a medically recognised fact that our body absorbs significant amounts of what we put on our skin.  The absence of government oversight for this $35 billion industry leads to companies routinely marketing products with ingredients that are poorly studied, not studied at all, or worse, known to pose potentially serious health risks.

    The Truth About the Drug Companies : How They Deceive Us and What to Do About
    In what should serve as the Fast Food Nation of the drug industry, Angell, former editor of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, presents a searing indictment of "big pharma" as corrupt and corrupting: of Congress, through huge campaign contributions; of the FDA, which is funded in part by the very companies it oversees; and, perhaps most shocking, of members of the medical profession and its institutions.

    Guylaine Lanctot, M.D - "The medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals whose main objective is profits, and whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic of good health. Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything goes: lies, fraud, and kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople of the drug companies. They are rewarded with research grants, gifts, and lavish perks. The principal buyers are the public - from infants to the elderly - who MUST be thoroughly medicated and vaccinated...at any cost! Why do the authorities forbid alternative medicine? Because they are serving the industry, and the industry cannot make money with herbs, vitamins, and homeopathy. They cannot patent natural remedies. That is why they push synthetics. They control medicine, and that is why they are able to tell medical schools what they can and cannot teach." more

It is less well known that over 3,000 Americans die each week from FDA approved prescription medication prescribed appropriately and taken according to instructions.

By embracing toxic chemotherapies and radiation therapies that are known to be carcinogenic, despite little proven success over the last fifty years in curing and preventing cancer, while actively supressing research and objective clinical trials on extremely promising non-toxic therapies, The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) indirectly kill more people each week than the almost 3,000 people who died on September 11 2001 in the World Trade Center and Pentagon terrorist attacks.

    "Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship... To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic... The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."-- Dr Benjamin Rush -signer of the Declaration of Independence. 

    Dangerous Medicine is a public, open-access website where people can post their horror stories about dangerous drugs, hospitals, surgical procedures or anything else related to conventional medicine. The site is intended to shed light on issues that the drug companies, hospitals and the FDA would rather sweep under the rug.

    Throughout history we have known that the best medicine, is no "medicine," but rather what we find in nature. History of Health and Medicine

    From Dr. Mercola's website: - “There’s no money in healthy people,” he says, and that truth is at the heart of our American health crisis.  By making it more difficult, and confusing, for you to make healthy choices, the food industries and the pharmaceutical industries are feeding their own megalomania. In truth, optimizing your health is not rocket science. But if you believe the media, and the pharmaceutical propaganda in particular, it may seem impossible to get by without emptying your wallet to buy your required pills for all those newly invented ills.  Wake up – and take control of your own health. Be the master of your own life. Don’t buy into the hype!  Watch this short satire on drugs video

     
    AIDS/HIV/AZT

    What if everything you thought you knew about AIDS was wrong? A growing number of scientists world-wide have publicly denounced the total failure of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, questioned the meaning of the "AIDS test", and criticized the use of AZT which has been proven to be a toxic poison that makes the patient sicker and is actually the cause of AIDS deaths. The group includes scientists such as Kary Mullis, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1993 for inventing the polymerase chain reaction used to test for HIV, Peter H. Duesberg, Ph.D., a professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley and Charles Thomas, PhD., Former chair of the Cell Biology Department, Scripps Research Institute - Healing AIDS: a holistic approach
     

     
    Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Fibromyalgia is a painful disorder for which mainstream medicine has no solution other than heavy, and often ineffective, use of painkillers. Fibromyalgia affects approximately 10,000,000 people in the United States and Canada. There are some estimates that would place that number even higher. The average age at onset is between 35 and 55 years old, but fibromyalgia can affect any age. Approximately 90% of those affected are female. Perhaps you have been told by a well-meaning but uniformed doctor that you will "just have to learn to live with it." Actually, Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and environmental illness can be permanently reversed using nontoxic alternative medicine treatments. more...

    Parasites Infections: Symptoms and Natural Treatment
    Native Americans knew that humans are plagued by parasites. Other native peoples, from the Arctic to the Antarctic, also knew that humans, like animals, have parasites. Parasitic infections arise from the intrusion worms that live in the intestinal tract of the body. Worm parasites are more common than most people expect, and they are listed as The Center for Disease Control's #1 Health Risk. According to numerous studies, nearly 85% of Americans have parasites in their bodies.  more...

    Radiant, Healthy Skin, The Natural Way

    Basic beauty begins with the glow of good health, which shines from within. The skin often mirrors the health of the whole body. A radiant clear complexion begins with proper nutrition, efficient digestion and assimilation of nutrients by the body and regular elimination.  Skin problems are a reflection of internal health and are often a reflection of overall body and blood toxicity and/or stomach problems. Almost anything that cleanses the blood or intestines will also show a result on the skin. Skin problems can also be as a result of allergies, hormone imbalances, nutrition or dehydration. 

     

    Proper Health Starts With The Correct Acid-Alkaline Balance In Your Body

    The acid-alkaline balance of the body has an enormous impact on a person’s health. The pH level (acid - alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Chronic acidity will interrupt all cellular activities and functions - it interferes with life itself. When the pH of the body gets out of balance (too acidic), we may experience low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches and pains, and even more serious disorders. When the body is excessively acidic, vital organs and individual cells are subject to damage or destruction.

      Vaccines: Are They Really Safe And Effective?What Every Parent Should Know BEFORE Their Childen Are Vaccinated - pictures from the CDC about the side effects of vaccinesWhat Every Parent Should Know BEFORE Their Childen Are Vaccinated! Why are a growing number of parents and health care professionals around the world questioning vaccination? The controversy stems from the thousands of deaths and permanent disabilities attributed to vaccination annually, as well as the many published medical studies, government statistics, congressional testimonies, and other credible sources that directly contradict commonly held assumptions about vaccine safety and effectiveness.

      This child died as a result of vaccines - pictures from the CDC about the side effects of vaccines
      In fall 1997, two influential professional magazines featured articles asking the question: Has the decrease of infectious diseases in childhood through the mass use of vaccines been replaced with an increase in chronic diseases such as diabetes and asthma? The Economist, a prestigious international magazine read by world leaders in government, business and public policy, and Science News, a magazine read by both health care professionals and the general public, explored the reported links between vaccines and chronic diseases in their November 22, 1997 issues.

      Congressman is calling for criminal penalties for any government agency that knew about the dangers of thimerosal in vaccines and did nothing to protect American children. Congressman Dan Burton (R-Indiana) during Congressional Hearing: "You mean to tell me that since 1929, we've been using Thimerosal, and the only  test that you know of is from 1929, and every one of those people had mennigitis, and they all died?" For nearly an hour, Burton repeatedly asked FDA and CDC officials what they knew and when they knew it. (Thimerosal contains a related mercury compound called ethyl mercury. Mercury is a toxic metal that can cause immune, sensory, neurological, motor, and behavioral dysfunctions.)

"...But soon after his first inoculation in February, the 29-years-old Mr. Nietupski showed up at an urgent -care facility with sores all over his mouth and throat. "The side of my tongue was all raw with little canker sores, and bloody mucus was coming out of my nose, " Mr. Nietupski says. His maladies, ultimately diagnosed as an autoimmune disorder in which his body accidentaly attacked itself, grew worse as he got the next two installements of the six-shot regime.

    Don't Believe in Miracles, Depend On Them ! -- Max Stein

    "Home" the movie is a fascinating look into how we as humans are upsetting the delicate balance on Earth. What I love about this film is how eloquently it shows that our food habits are one of the leading contributors to this problem, which also inadvertently shows that there is something that we can do about it! As Dav...id Wolfe mentions in 'Food Matters' "the main way in which we interact with the planet is through agriculture".

    This offers much hope in that if we change our food habits we not only can improve our health but also the health of the planet. What could be more satisfying? This is not your average doom and gloom film, it is an objective look into where we are at on planet earth and offers subtle hints as to what we can do about improving our health and the health of the planet. Enjoy" - James Colquhoun - Producer, of Food Matters

    We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate. The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being. For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film  CLICK HERE TO  WATCH THE FULL VERSION ON YOUTUBE
