'Did you know that the bacteria in your body outnumber your body’s cells 10 to 1?

It’s true, and most of them reside in your gut.

But there really is no need to panic, most bacteria are quite harmless.

Having the right bacteria in there has even been linked to numerous health benefits (1).

This includes weight loss, improved digestion, enhanced immune function, better skin and a reduced risk of many diseases (2).

This leads us to the topic at hand, probiotics.

Probiotics are foods or supplements that contain these friendly bacteria, and are supposed to help colonize our guts with health-boosting microorganisms.


The importance of this can not be overstated.'

'Having optimal levels of thyroid hormone is essential for  preventing and recovering from heart disease says Dr. Kathy Maupin, a pioneer in anti-aging medicine and founder of BioBalance Health. While many conventional physicians seem to think that elevated thyroid is a risk factor for heart disease, the real culprit is actually low thyroid.   When the thyroid gland does not make optimal levels of thyroid hormone, a downward cascade is set off in the body that'

'In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, you may be cut off from medical aid. One of the most important things to have on hand will be a homeopathy emergency survival kit. Homeopathy is cheap, effective, and has no side effects. 

This medical science uses natural substances to stimulate the body to heal itself. Most homeopathic remedies are made from herbs and minerals, and they are based on the principle discovered over 200 years ago in Germany by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann that a substance that produces symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure the same symptoms in a sick person, when prepared according to homeopathic principles. 

Many of us have heard propaganda from Big Pharma and the medical industry that homeopathy is quackery. In truth, the medical industry is afraid of the competition homeopathy represents. Anyone who has ever tried it will know the truth.'

'Good overall health begins with a healthy gut. Chronic illness begins with breakdown in the gut. This is where I typically start with clients looking to address any health challenge.

If you're looking for lasting improvement in any area of your health, it's best not to think of your body parts as being independent compartments. 

Every cell communicates with every other cell, not always directly, but via the fluids, hormones, and neurotransmitters that travel through the vast network of blood vessels and nerves that course through every part of you. And it all starts with your gut.

Think of your digestive tract as your first physical line of defense against all chronic, degenerative illness.'

Do you have enough thyroid hormone for optimal health?

Photo Credit: AlignLife

'Most patients taking supplemental thyroid hormone are not getting a dose high enough to reach optimal function and resist disease. This is the latest finding from Dr. Kathy Maupin, a pioneer in anti-aging medicine and medical director of BioBalance, and it underscores the critical importance of the thyroid to health. 

The reason is that the dosage prescribed is most often decided by arbitrary laboratory values that capture only a single moment in time and are not reflective of the true state of the patient. Instead of making judgments based on narrowly representative lab results, Dr. Maupin says, the dose should be decided by the resolution of symptoms. What a novel idea!'

'Here’s my response to a recent article entitled “Alternative therapies: What’s the harm?” posted on the Cancer Research UK Science Blog. And that’s the photo they used.

In a nutshell, it’s just another weak attempt to create fear and doubt about alternative cancer therapies with tired old industry clich├ęs and propaganda.

This was a fun one to dismantle.

'What is vaccine junk science?  A recent outbreak of mumps surprised many because virtually all those infected had been vaccinated for the diseases. Most of those afflicted had received the required two shots of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. But amazingly, regional health authorities’ answer was to recommended a third dangerous shot as the solution, a logic that defies reason.'

'A new analysis by Environmental Working Group has found that harmful artificial trans fatty acids lurk in more than 27 percent of more than 84,000 processed foods common in American supermarkets.  Another 10 percent contain ingredients likely to contain trans fat.


EWG analysts used information from EWG’s Food Scores database and mobile app to determine which foods contained partially hydrogenated oils and other trans fat containing-ingredients. The interactive, searchable tool rates more than 84,000 foods and 5,000 ingredients based on nutrition, ingredient and processing concerns.


In most cases, the products’ trans fat content on the nutrition label doesn’t add up. The reason: an obscure loophole in federal food labeling regulations that allows food processors to round off less than half a gram of trans fat per serving to zero.'

"Germs" Help The Body Produce Vitamin C: Breakthrough Discovery

Amazing Discovery: "Germs" Enable Us To Produce Vitamin C

 'Groundbreaking new research indicates that humans are capable of synthesizing vitamin C via their highly complex and capable microbiome.
We live in a time and age where decades old assumptions about the human body are being overturned on a surprisingly regular basis. 

For instance, bodily cells were recently found to communicate inheritable information to sex cells (e.g. sperm) capable of being passed down to the next generation, effectively overturning Darwinian concepts of inheritance in favor of the long denied Larmarckian view. 

Last year, edible plant material was found to 'talk' to the cells in our body via nanoparticles known as exosomes that regulate the expression of our DNA, as well as other important physiological pathways.'

'With 1 in 5 Americans taking a psychiatric medication, most of whom, long term, we should probably start to learn a bit more about them. In fact, it would have been in the service of true informed consent to have investigated long-term risks before the deluge of these meds seized our population over the past thirty years.


You may be unaware of a literature that suggests long-term treatment with all psychiatric medications is more likely to leave you with a lesser quality of life. Here's one more reason to reconsider life partnership with your psychiatric medication – it may contribute to your cancer risk.'

'The most common form of cancer in the world today according to WEBMD is non melanoma skin cancer. Skin cancer rates have skyrocketed and are literally almost out of control. The mostly widely known solution in our modern era is to wear lots of sunscreen, takes immune suppressing drugs, and get laser or burn treatments. 

Unfortunately, the Western treatments option never address the root of the issue. Due to this, the sun has gotten a massive amount of blame. But, again, is the sun or even UV rays to blame?'

AMA Standard of Care is Hypocritical, Not Hippocratic


















Deaths, injuries, or illnesses that result from any allopathic medical protocols or medicines are iatrogenic events (caused by medical intervention). And iatrogenic death ranks third, conservatively, among all causes of death in the USA.
This estimate excludes “cancer deaths” that are often from toxic chemo and radiation therapies that actually produce enough harm to kill before the cancer can.

'The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk?

No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty; he wrote the textbooks. The Mosaic of Autoimmunity,  

Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity – the list is 25 titles long and some of them are cornerstones of clinical practice. 

Hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the "Godfather of Autoimmunology" – the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis'.

'Researchers have long suggested a link between the gut-brain axis and neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism, depression, and eating disorders. Using probiotics and prebiotics to alter the gut microbiota and influence the gut-brain axis may open up new ways of influencing neuropsychological conditions, says a new review.


The majority of the science for probiotics has focused on gut health, but as the understanding of the gut and the microbiome increases, probiotics are increasing linked to a range of beneficial effects, from weight management to immune support and allergy response, and from oral health to cholesterol reduction.'

'Does the habitual use of antidepressants do more harm than good to many patients? Absolutely, says one expert in a new British Medical Journal report. Moreover, he says that the federal Food and Drug Administration might even be hiding the truth about antidepressant lethality.


In his portion of the report, Peter C. Gotzsche, a professor at the Nordic Cochrane Centre in Denmark, said that nearly all psychotropic drug use could be ended today without deleterious effects, adding that such “drugs are responsible for the deaths of more than half a million people aged 65 and older each year in the Western world.”'

'A recent study finds that blueberries are even healthier than ever imagined. Learn what just six weeks of daily blueberries can do.

If we review the landscape of health issues, two that lie at the root of a variety of health conditions are a lack of immune cells and a stiffening of the blood vessels.

When our immune system is deficient in natural killer T-cells, the body can be subjected to a variety of autoimmune disorders. Cancer and tumor growth are also related to a lack of natural killer T-cells. And without enough natural killer T-cells, a minor infection can turn into a disaster.'

Degeneration of the Myelin Sheath is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune process of the central nervous system that affects the brain, spinal cord and optic nerve.


In this process, the immune system attacks the covering of the nerves, called the myelin sheath

Consequently, the sheaths are damaged, and the damaged areas develop scarring that leads to either distorted communication or lack of communication between the nerve endings.


Some 350,000 people in the United States have symptoms of myelin sheath degeneration. It affects twice as many women as men, and the onset is usually between ages of 25 and 40. Please scroll down for a list of some of the main symptoms for myelin sheath degeneration and multiple sclerosis.
