Place Mushrooms in Sunlight to Get Your Vitamin D

Agaricus brasiliensis


'Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that boosts the immune system and plays vital roles in human metabolism. Did you know that tasty mushrooms are one source for vitamin D, and that you can naturally multiply their levels by exposing them to sunlight?

We evolved living in more sunlight than today. We make our own vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin cells. Many people living in the northern hemisphere, however, suffer from lower levels of vitamin D during the fall, winter and spring. Fortunately, you can make your own supply of vitamin D-enriched mushrooms by simply exposing them to sunlight.'

How Cooking Can Change Your Life - Michael Pollan

Dear parents, are you being lied to?

Untitled


'Dear Parents, You are being lied to. There are pharmaceutical companies who claim to be acting in the best interests of your children, but they’re putting your health and even lives at risk for the sake of profits. There are some doctors, who, despite not being trained on the history of, lack of science behind, adverse reactions, or additives in vaccinations, refuse to read the package inserts and contrary scientific evidence, and do not inform you of the true risks of a vaccine so you can make an educated decision. You’re being lied to…because you’re told you’re just a parent, and you don’t have a say.'

'Regardless of the fact that several sessions of chemo or radiation lowers one’s chance of getting healed from so called “alternative” methods, it appears that cannabis treatment can overcome that obstacle.

Stan and Barb Rutner had already had bouts with cancer earlier in their lives. Barb twice treated breast cancer with orthodox treatments and her version of visualization. Stan managed to get through non-Hodgkin lymphoma after six months of treatment. Of course, cancer seems to like to return after remissions from mainstream treatments.  And this time, when they were older, it looked like the end for Stan.'

'I have always felt that many of our health problems are caused by a Physical, Chemical or Emotional trauma to our autonomic nervous system. I discovered this phenomenon in 1979 while working with Migraine Headache patients. They had a very common statement “ever since” which was followed by an account of a physical, emotional or chemical event. In 1980 I started on a journey around the world. 

I returned home in 1982 and went back into practice without finding a scientific answer.

In 1979 Dr. Ryke Hamer also made a very similar discovery. He has spent his life trying to prove this phenomenon to the scientific community. I hope that by reading the following article you will have a better understanding of why I rely so heavily on the patient history.'

ED Note: Please switch to fair trade organic coffee if you haven't. Other coffee plant beans are heavily sprayed with toxins and sometimes enslaved children are forced to pick them.

'Just decades ago doctors and health professionals were warning about the dangers of having too much coffee because of the risk that caffeine was thought to have on the body.
 

However, the last decade has shed a lot of light on the health benefits of coffee and its relationship to cancer.
 

Many decade or more long studies have been coming to a close and the results have been changing everything the medical profession thought they knew about coffee and how it influences the risks of getting cancer.
 

Study after study has been showing the cancer fighting properties of coffee because of the rich antioxidants it contains.'

Psychoneuroimmunology—How Inflammation Affects Your Mental Health




By Dr. Kelly Brogan

 'Psychoneuroimmunology. This is what I aim to practice. Medical terms of this length command our respect for the interconnectedness of different subspecialties, for the futile segmentation and compartmentalization of the body into different organ systems.

As discussed in this previous article I wrote for Dr. Mercola, deconstructing the serotonin model of depression, psychiatry is in a crisis. It can no longer stand on its own, throwing more and more medications at its perceived target.


It seems, therefore, fitting that psychiatry would follow the investigative path of other lifestyle-triggered chronic diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and heart disease. There already exists a bidirectional relationship between all of the major chronic diseases and psychiatric diagnoses (patients who struggle with chronic diseases are more likely to be depressed and vice versa).


The role of inflammation, across these disease states, is better elucidated each day. Let's deconstruct what is known as it applies to mental health.'

Soma Water Filters: High Style, No Substance

'Recently there's been a lot of buzz about a new water filter.
It's beautiful, innovative, eco-friendly, and totally unique.
At first glance I was impressed, but what I found upon investigation, was astounding and infuriating.

Readers of my site know that posting critical product reviews is not my thing, but this company appears to be perpetrating one of the most sophisticated health cons I've seen in awhile.

So I'm compelled to expose it.

After reading the post you'll see what I mean, and hopefully together we can divert a lot of people away from this impostor.'

The Vaccination Hoax



'The history of vaccination is more complicated than most people understand. The anti-vaccine movement is hundreds of years old. It heated up in the 1800s, when parents in the UK became fed up with watching their healthy infants and children become ill or die shortly after the smallpox vaccinations or get sick from smallpox anyway.

Parents and doctors who refused smallpox vaccines, risked losing their homes, their furniture and their livelihoods if Judges found against them.

The smallpox vaccines were made from pus scraped off of diseased cows’ belly sores, contaminated with disease matter from a variety of animals and in some cases, humans. The smallpox vaccine history is not what you think it is, if you think vaccines wiped out smallpox.'

Big Pharma Mafia: Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime

Is Big Pharma like the Mafia? Cochrane Medical Journal founder says YES.


'Removal of drugs should usually not be accompanied by the introduction of other types of treatment. Many patients would gain a better quality of life if their drugs were taken away from them. What we need is to remember Brian McFerrin’s song: “Don’t worry, be happy”. 

We shall all die, but we should remember to live while we are here without worrying that some day in the future we might get ill. It is daunting how many healthy people are put on drugs that lower blood pressure or cholesterol, and it changes people from healthy citizens to patients who may start worrying about their good health.

This can have profound psychological consequences apart from the side effects of the drugs that the patients don’t always realise are side effects, e.g. if they get more tired or depressed after starting antihypertensive therapy or experience problems in their sex life.'

Black Sapote; The Chocolate Pudding Fruit


Important Editor's Note: There is a delicious Black Sapote pudding recipe included in this article, however do not use agave (not really healthy research) -instead use honey or genuine maple syrup. Also use organic, raw milk and or cream if possible or at least use organic. pastured cream/milk.


'Once you open a ripe black sapote (Diospyris dignia) you can see why it is called “chocolate pudding fruit.” The deep rich brown smooth pulp with its spoon-like consistency looks exactly like chocolate pudding.

I am often asked, “What does it taste like?” I want to reply that it tastes exactly what it tastes like but this does not help the unwary. So, for those of you who must know what something tastes like before you venture into unknown territory, it has a sweet and mild flavor and with a little imagination you can actually taste chocolate as well as hints of coffee.'

This Is Your Brain On Aspartame



 

 'Controversy continues to rage over the artificial sweetener aspartame. Since it was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1981, aspartame has made its way into more than 6,000 food items.

The FDA claims aspartame is safe but has set an acceptable daily intake of no more than 50 mg per kilogram of body weight. In other words, an adult weighing 165 pounds should consume no more than 3,750 mg of aspartame a day.

A can of diet soda typically contains about 180 mg of the chemical. That means the FDA’s “safe” limit equates to about 21 cans of diet soda per day.

But is any level of aspartame really safe?'

'Every hour, three children in the United States are diagnosed with type-1 diabetes (1). Type-1 diabetes’ incidence was very low in the first half of the twentieth century. However, became more prevalent, especially in young children, during the second half of the twentieth century and really began to surge during the past twenty years (1). Researchers also see a trend in the increased prevalence of other autoimmune disorders. Not only are certain autoimmune disorders increasingly common, but the autoimmune diseases, as a class, seem to be on the rise.'

New Study Says Honey Beats Antibiotic Prescription Drugs

'There has been plenty in the news about superbugs, strains of bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotic drugs because of their overuse.  But there has not been much offered as a solution to this problem until now.  A new study is showing that honey can supply the best antibiotic protection without any unwanted side effects.

“The unique property of honey lies in its ability to fight infection on multiple levels, making it more difficult for bacteria to develop resistance,” reported lead researcher Susan M. Meschwitz Ph.D.  The study’s findings were presented last month to the 247th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.'

'Psychedelics like psilocybin mushrooms and LSD not only don’t cause mental health problems, they may actually improve mental health, say Norwegian researchers. 

Those are the findings by neuroscience researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, who reported that LSD, psilocybin and mescaline not only don’t cause long-term mental health problems, but that in many cases the use of psychedelics is associated with a lower rate of mental health problems.'

Creating Disease: Big Pharma and Disease Mongering

'You may think there is enough disease in the world already, and that no one would want to add to the diseases that we humans must deal with. But there is a powerful industry in our society that is working overtime to invent illnesses and to convince us we are suffering from them.

This effort is known as "disease mongering," a term introduced by health-science writer Lynn Payer in her 1992 book Disease-Mongers: How Doctors, Drug Companies, and Insurers Are Making You Feel Sick. Payer defined disease mongering as "trying to convince essentially well people that they are sick, or slightly sick people that they are very ill."'

'Sometimes it really is the thinking that makes it so. Spend your days focusing on your vibrant health and you will be vibrantly healthy. In contrast you could make it known that you lack a healthy lifestyle, and as a result you will continue to live an unhealthy lifestyle.

'Detoxification is meant to rejuvenate the mind and body and positively impact well being and clarity. However, sometimes the initial reaction to a detoxification program can be anything but pleasant. The process of healing sometimes includes a healing crisis, also known as the detox reaction, the cleansing reaction, and the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. During a healing crisis, you can feel even worse than before you started your detox program. The good news is that this reaction is likely a sign that you’re getting better by way of a deep and thorough cleansing.'
