Antibiotics for dental procedures linked to serious and potentially deadly infection

The overuse of antibiotics is already at an alarming level – worldwide. It is resulting in the creation of pathogens called “superbugs” – that are resistant to many antibiotics prescribed today; killing off friendly bacteria in the gut and weakening the overall strength of the immune system. Now, new evidence is showing that the prescription of antibiotics by dentists is contributing to the spread of Clostridium difficile (C. diff) – a potentially deadly infection. And all too often, say researchers, these antibiotics are prescribed needlessly. The evidence for this public health issue was just presented at IDWeek 2017. Overprescription of antibiotics cause unwanted health outcomes The symptoms of C. diff infection include severe diarrhea and other gastrointestinal issues. The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has been tracking the spread of community-associated C.… Read More

The Trade Secrets Behind Store-bought “Fresh Squeezed” or “Not From Concentrate” Orange Juice

You’ve seen them and maybe you’ve bought them, cartons and plastic bottles of orange juice labeled “freshly squeezed.” But there are some relatively unknown trade secrets that will question the validity of these marketing claims for orange juice. “Freshly squeezed” does not mean they are not highly processed. Let’s start with the obvious. Almost all juices, including orange juice, are pasteurized. That’s an FDA requirement to ensure we don’t get the bugs that cause gastrointestinal (GI) diseases such as E. coli and Salmonella. Pasteurization involves heating, and heating harms nutrients, especially enzymes. Enzymes are vital as metabolic catalysts. They help vitamins and minerals function as nature intended. Thus they are often more important than the vitamins and minerals themselves. When they don’t get properly metabolized they can wind up as toxic materials… Read More

How I Overcame Anxiety And Found Spiritual Fulfillment Through Ayahuasca

Sing me home. I would like to share a few highlights of my recent week long ayahuasca retreat. It is in no way a complete accounting of the experiences but I felt that these particular ones may be of interest to others. It was the most powerful, terrifying, unspeakably beautiful, and ultimately transforming experience of my life without any close comparison. I am an electrical engineer in my mid 50s who has been in a long and seemingly fruitless search for spiritual fulfillment. Starting from a Catholic background, I went through a range of meditations, varied religions, reading channeled material, sacred geometry, attempting altered states, yoga, etc. Pretty much throw a dart at a pathway, and I have done some hiking there. In my state of general discontentment, I even quit my… Read More

Soaking Feet in Ice-Cold Water for 15 Seconds/Day Can Reinforce Immune System to Fight Colds, Flu and Even Prevent Cancer

If you frequently suffer from colds, you need to do something to strengthen your immune system.

The investigators at Britain’s Thrombosis Research Institute suggested that as the body tries to warm itself during and after a cold shower, metabolic rate speeds up and activates the immune… Read More

Why Cheese Is More Addictive Than Ice Cream, Cookies, Chips And Chocolate

The following is an excerpt from The Cheese Trap: How Breaking a Surprising Addiction Will Help You Lose Weight, Gain Energy, and Get Healthy, which was released by Hachette Book Group. Which foods do you find most addictive? That’s the question University of Michigan researchers asked. The idea was, which foods lead you to lose control over how much you eat? Which ones are hard to limit? Which ones do you eat despite negative consequences? The researchers surveyed 384 people and here is what they found: Problem food #5 is ice cream. Problem food #4 is cookies. Chips and chocolate were tied for #3 and #2. But the most problematic food of all was — drum roll, please — pizza. Yes, gooey cheese melting over a hot crust and dribbling down your… Read More

How Natural Medicine was Destroyed in 1910

The Move that Changed the Health and Wellbeing Industry I am now 68 and over the years I have relied upon alternative medical solutions for almost all my health problems. A change in diet, herbs, vitamins, minerals and lots of exercise ended up being almost all the medicine I ever needed! In 2010, when I was 61, I cured myself of arthritis with vitamins and minerals alone. I had suffered since I was in my 20s. My doctors said arthritis was not curable, but Western medicine was wrong about arthritis. After that simple cure, I quit suffering, became skeptical, and started to research the history of medicine in North America. What I discovered is astonishing! From a young age, I was fascinated by medical technology. When I was about 7 years old,… Read More

New Research Confirms Cannabis Kills Brain Cancer, NOT Your Brain

Some might think that it’s too good to be true. Does cannabis really kill brain cancer cells? Clinical trials on humans are awaiting results, but recent research gives hope.
