5 Life-Changing Lessons Zorba the Greek Taught Me


'Zorba is the larger- than- life passionate, earthy and unpredictable protagonist of Nikos Kazantzakis’ 1946 novel: Zorba the Greek. The original Greek title was The Life and Times of Alexis Zorbas, but as the novel was widely translated and it became renowned internationally it was eventually and extemporaneously renamed Zorba the Greek.

Interestingly, the Alexis character was actually based on a real person named Yorgis Zorbas, who was a friend and mentor to Kazantzakis.

As legend goes, it was Zorbas who taught Kazantzakis the art of fully living in each moment without regret or fear and most importantly with a deep feeling of awe, gratitude and wonder for whatever life presents – be it pleasure or pain – the “full catastrophe.” Ultimately, Zorbas embodies a childlike willingness to surrender (allow) and trust whatever life manifests moment by precious moment – the good, the bad, or the ugly 

“Those who met him [Yorgis Zorbas] speak of a person free of social conventions, illiterate yet ingenious, and profoundly philosophical, which is why he touched Kazantzakis’ soul.”'


Essiac Tea: The Underrated Inexpensive Cancer Cure

'Of all the alternative approaches for cancer, Essiac Tea has been slighted and forgotten the most over the past couple of decades, especially with several other approaches that have received more sensational press than Essiac lately. Cannabis is great, but not so accessible and certainly not so cheap unless you can grow a lot of your own plants and make your own cannabis oil.'


Ways To Reduce The Cancer-Causing Effects of Cell Phones

'Ever since the World Health Organization admitted in 2011 that cell phone radiation is "possibly carcinogenic," and may be contributing to the global uptick in brain cancer cases, its far harder to label someone a hypochondriac for being concerned about the health consequences of exposure.[i]  In fact, one study cited in their report showed a 40% increased risk for gliomas in the highest category of heavy users (reported average: 30 minutes per day over a 10-year period) – not exactly a small effect.

A recent study published in the journal Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology confirms that the microwave radiation given off by mobile phones is capable of transforming normal cells into cancerous ones.'

Drugs to stop prostate enlargement have devastating side effects

'As men enter midlife their hormone status begins to change, just as it does in women but the change is more subtle. The high level of testosterone that has kept them fit, virile, reproductive, and free of degenerative disease starts to drop, and some of what is left begins to be converted into other hormones, in this case dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is DHT that powers prostate enlargement, and blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT is the goal of drugs that treat prostate enlargement.'

The Fluoride Deception: An Interview with Christopher Bryson

Fluoride—A Cumulative Poison

'Approximately 98 percent of the fluoride you ingest in water is absorbed into your blood through your gastrointestinal tract. From there, it enters your body’s cellular tissues. On average, about 50 percent of the fluoride you ingest each day gets excreted through your kidneys.

The remainder accumulates in your teeth and bones,3 pineal gland,4 and other tissues—including your blood vessels, where it can contribute to calcification. According to a 2012 study published in the journal Nuclear Medicine Communications:'

Painful hemorrhoids, high blood pressure and skin issues, such as psoriasis, all have something in common: Blood flow. Research finds these three issues can all be successfully treated with the pine bark extract called Pycnogenol.

'In a flurry of research on one of the most efficacious natural extracts known to exist (see: 80 diseases that benefit from pycnogenol on the GMI database), three recent clinical studies have shown that the French maritime pine bark extract, Pycnogenol, can treat psoriasis and hemorrhoids, and reduce hypertension.

5 Myths About Marijuana Debunked

 'The more research is released, the more legalization makes sense.

Back in the 1930s, the arguments to criminalize cannabis were bizarre and openly racist. The anti-pot crusader Harry Anslinger made all sorts of over-the-top claims, such as, “Marihuana is a short cut to the insane asylum. Smoke marihuana cigarettes for a month and what was once your brain will be nothing but a storehouse of horrid specters.”

Nowadays more than 100 million Americans say they’ve smoke pot, millions use cannabis regularly to treat illnesses and it is as legal as alcohol in two U.S. states. However, it remains illegal under federal law largely due to scare tactics ingrained in our society, which date back even prior to Anslinger.'


Gluten Free Is Not Healthy

'Gluten Free is not healthy? Blasphemy –you must think someone has hijacked my blog, but it’s true. Just because a food is gluten free does not mean it is healthy.

Sadly, the recent popularity of “gluten free” has many thinking that if they eliminate gluten, they are on a healthy diet. As Michael Pollan wrote last year in the New York Times Magazine, “Gluten has become the bad nutrient of the moment.”

I think it’s time for those of us in the gluten free blogoshpere to admit that villainizing one ingredient is not enough when it comes to eating well.'

Study Calls Into Question Primary Justification for Vaccines

'According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Immunity to a disease is achieved through the presence of antibodies to that disease in a person’s system."[i] This, in fact, is the main justification for using vaccines to "boost" immunity, and a primary focus of vaccine research and development.

And yet, newly published research has revealed that in some cases no antibodies are required for immunity against some viruses.

Published in the journal Immunity in March, 2011, and titled, "B cell maintenance of subcapsular sinus macrophages protects against a fatal viral infection independent of adaptive immunity," researchers found that mice infected with vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) can suffer fatal invasion of their central nervous system even in the presence of high concentrations of "neutralizing" antibodies against VSV.'

Breaking: Vote fraud in Oregon sinks GMO labeling measure

'As my readers know, I’m not a fan of GMO labeling. The real route to victory has always been banning GMOs.

Ban, not label.

But I’m also not a fan of vote fraud. Which is what just happened in Oregon, where a recount of a very close election turned into a criminal act.

In November, Prop 92, which would have mandated labeling GMO food products in the state, went down to defeat by 800 votes.

That razor-thin margin triggered an automatic recount, by law.

During the recount, 4600 ballots were thrown out, because the signatures on those ballots didn’t match the signatures on the voters’ registration cards.'


The Lowly Lime is More Effective than Pharma Drugs for Serious Diseases

'The term “limey” is based on the history of the British Royal Navy’s use of limes on board ships during the mid-1700s and onward to prevent and cure scurvy among their sailors while out at sea for extended periods. At first oranges, lemons, and limes were used. But eventually limes became the standard Navy issue. Limes were more abundant in trade route regions and doctors also thought they were the most beneficial citrus fruit.'

Is it time for a new paradigm in mental health?  Are non-drugs, like virgin coconut oil, a safter and more effective alternative to stress and depression?

'A new study conducted in Malaysia looked at the effects of consuming high-antioxidant virgin coconut oil on mental health.

Published in the journal Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine and believed to be the first study of its kind, researchers evaluated the anti-stress and antioxidant effects of virgin coconut oil in mice with stress-induced injuries. 

The title of the study is "Antistress and antioxidant effects of virgin coconut oil in vivo."

The researchers performed several stress tests on groups of mice. Control groups included untreated mice and mice not subjected to stress, and virgin coconut oil was compared to a commonly prescribed psychiatric drug, Diazepam.'
