There is a ‘second brain’ in your gut — and it controls more than you might imagine


(NaturalNews) Does the human gut perform other important functions besides just digesting and assimilating our food? A new video put together by AsapSCIENCE explains in precise detail how the gut is not only multimodal when it comes to governing the metabolic functionality of our bodies, but it further acts as a type of “second brain” to regulate our hormone levels, our moods, and even the primary brain up-top in the noggin. The roughly five-minute video posted to YouTube unpacks the emerging science behind the gut’s brain, or what is more descriptively known as the enteric nervous system. This system governs the breakdown and use of food from esophagus to anus, and it also operates independently of our primary brains to keep our bodies balanced and in a constant state of homeostasis. Besides… Read More

Reversal of Chronic Disease Risk Even Late in Life


A hundred years ago, the New York Times reported on a rather sophisticated study for the time: 4,600 cases of cancer appearing over a seven year period, suggesting that the increased consumption of animal foods was to blame. A century later, the latest review on the subjects concluded that mortality from all causes put together, ischemic heart disease, circulatory, and cerebrovascular diseases was significantly lower in those eating meat-free diets, in addition to less cancer and diabetes. I’m surprised they found such significant results given that people in these studies typically didn’t stop eating meat until late in life. For example, in the largest study done up until recently, up to a third of subjects ate vegetarian for less than five years, yet they still ended up with lower rates of heart… Read More

Monsanto suppresses information about dangers of RNA interference technology


(NaturalNews) A professor from South Carolina University who conducts medical research on plant genes is bringing forth new findings on RNA interference technology that have Monsanto squirming. Her research lines up with findings from Chinese researcher Dr. Chen-Yu Zhang, who has confirmed new dangers of RNA interference technology in plants engineered to kill insects. Their research is so eye opening that both of them have been confronted by Monsanto itself. It’s now apparent that Monsanto seeks to destroy any scientific research that conflicts with their agenda. SC Professor experiences the pressures and controls of Monsanto first hand South Carolina University Professor Vicki Vance has been engaged in conducting RNA research for nearly 30 years. She is beginning to see how multinational corporations like Monsanto control scientific academia through harassment and by wielding… Read More

25 Ways To Use Oregano Essential Oil For Health And Wellness


Five years ago, if someone were to mention the use of oregano essential for health and wellness purposes I would have looked at them cross-eyed.  Although well versed in the benefits of essential oils, for one reason or another, oregano essential oil was nowhere to be found on my radar screen.  Oregano for wellness?  Although I grow it in my yard and use it in pasta dishes and on pizza, I had never considered it to have healing qualities. Moving forward in time, as I began to toss out conventional over-the-counter remedies, I discovered that Oregano essential oil has some amazing qualities.  Not only that, it is inexpensive and can be effectively used in so many ways that like lavender, it should be called the Swiss army knife of essential oils. A… Read More

5 Things You May Not Know About Aspartame


Aspartame is a nasty chemical that’s sold as a zero-calorie healthy sweetener. But did you know that it’s technically not calorie-free? Not a lot, only about 4 calories per gram. [1] That isn’t a lot, and it’s not a big deal. But it’s one weird fact you probably didn’t know about aspartame. Let’s take a look at a few other points about aspartame that rarely get discussed. 1. Aspartame is Made from Bacteria Poop The chemical aspartame is made from the waste product of E. coli bacteria. To be blunt, it’s made from bacteria poop. As if that’s not bad enough, the poop is then benzylated and hydrolyzed, and the result of that process is then methylated and debenzylated. [2] Are your eyes crossed from trying to make sense of that? I… Read More

How to Survive End-Stage Cancer


After 35 years in practice, I have had thousands of patients who were told that there was nothing else that could stop their back pain except pain medication and/or surgery. Unfortunately, many of these same patients were NOT offered ALL of their options. The one option that was not offered, of course, was chiropractic treatment. I can tell you with great satisfaction that many many of these patients finally were relieved of their pain after seeing me for chiropractic treatment. In fact, you will likely hear the same story from many of my colleages. The results are absolutely stunning. The question you may be asking is, “why aren’t more people told about the great benefits of chiropractic treatment for millions of people suffering with back pain?” Well, I believe the main reason… Read More

Disturbing US Fact: Over 1 Million 0-5 Year Olds Prescribed Psychiatric Drugs!


The data, as reported by IMS Health, the largest and most credible source of prescribing data in the United States, is staggering: 274,804 babies, 370,778 toddlers and 500,948 preschoolers have been prescribed psychiatric drugs so powerful that they carry 386 international drug regulatory warnings. In total, the number of 0-5 year olds prescribed dangerous and life-threatening drugs psychiatric drugs is 1,080,168, all before most have ever entered kindergarten.

The Strongest ‘Gateway Drug’ Is 100% Legal!


You may have heard that marijuana is a gateway drug. Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie makes this argument seemingly every chance he gets. Anti-drug groups often make similar claims. The evidence seems convincing enough at first blush: studies show that 99 percent of illicit drug users tried marijuana before they did any other drugs. But on its own, this line of thinking actually is pretty tenuous: we could also safely assume that 99 percent of illicit drug users also tried coffee, or soda, or chocolate milk before moving on to stronger substances. New research out this month in the Journal of School Health could shed some light on this question. A team of researchers from Texas A&M and the University of Florida examined data from from 2,800 U.S. 12th graders interviewed for… Read More

Local Honey: Taking a Closer Look


Is your local honey really local? There is considerable conversation on the Internet these days about the benefits of eating local honey. Much of the discussion revolves around using local honey to help with pollen related allergies. Some say that local honey contains a blend of local pollen, which can strengthen a person’s immune system, and reduce pollen allergy symptoms. Is this true? Let’s take a look. The first fact is that there has been very little scientific research on whether local honey is helpful for the reduction of pollen related allergy symptoms. There are a few studies to consider, and a huge amount of personal opinion on the topic. I will show you two of the most significant studies. But before I do, I will summarize the honey making process and… Read More

Fight Candida With These Powerful Foods

Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that grows both as yeast and filamentous cells and a causal agent of opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans

Did you know that candida is a genus of yeast that we all have, living in our guts. Candida is what is known as “Dimorphic”. In other words it can exist in 2 forms at the same time. One form (as yeast) is beneficial. It helps to ferment sugar and is 100% non-invasive. The other form that Candida can take is a fungal form, in which it develops extended root type structures that are known as “Rhizoids”. These roots are able to penetrate our mucous membranes, and therefore become invasive. 80% of US Citizens may have Candida Overgrowth In its yeast guise, Candida is a so called “friendly bacterium”, and its growth is normally held in check by a healthy immune system. But when our immune systems are compromised in some way,… Read More
