The pharmaceutical industry has pushed the government to criminalize most potent, natural painkillers, but according to C. Thomas Corriher, they missed a few..

This article is an attempt to unify this critically important information, and to make it easily accessible for those needing serious pain relief. Read more

While drugs for hypertension such as beta-blockers can cause side effects, including fatigue, blurred vision, or difficulty breathing, a groundbreaking new study has fortunately revealed that garlic is as effective as the “blockbuster” beta-blocker atenolol.

If you're like most people, you probably think kale is the most nutritious foods around. Actually, kale ranks down the list a ways of nutritious leafy greens.
... In the food world, the biggest celebrity of all might be kale—the Shakira of salads, the Lady Gaga of leafy greens. It’s universally recognized that kale anything—kale chips, kale pesto, kale face cream—instantly imparts a health halo. Even 7-Eleven is making over its image by offering kale cold-pressed juices. And yes, kale has plenty of benefits—including high levels of folate and more calcium, gram for gram, than a cup of milk. (It’s head and shoulders above these items found in our Eat This, Not That! Special Report: “Health” Foods Worse for You Than a Donut.)

The Sanskrit word for immunity – vyadhikshamatva, and its translation – ‘forgiveness of disease.’

The sodium fluoride added to drinking water is proven to lower IQ. Lisa Garber reveals five ways to get it out of your body.
It should be outrageous to think that the very water we drink is poisoned—but the water actually is. Although calcium fluoride is found naturally in underground and ocean water, the sodium fluoride added to the public water supply is virtually toxic, a wolf in the sheep’s garb of improved dental health. (The West Virginia University Rural Health Research Center says that fluoride doesn’t even prevent cavities; vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids are better allies for that.) Even the federal government is calling for lower levels of fluoride in public water after a Harvard study confirmed fluoride’s lowers IQ. So needless to say, it is extremely important to know of fluoride treatment methods.
In the wake of even more horrifying findings like fluoride’s link to the cardiovascular and cancer epidemic (causing at least 10,000 cancer deaths since 1977), it’s imperative that we learn how to defend ourselves against systematic and casual envenoming of our water. Here are 5 methods for fluoride treamtnet – ways to detoxify your body of fluoride. Read more

Turmeric has been used to relieve everything from liver problems to depression to ringworm in folk medicine, but, like many alternative therapies, there's not always much research to back up the ancient wisdom.

Margaret Durst describes the symptoms that indicate your gallbladder needs cleaning.
G is for gallbladder – a storage organ for the bile produced by the liver. Bile is important because it emulsifies fats that we eat and aids in elimination of cholesterol from the body. Bile increases the normal action of the intestines and helps prevent parasitic infection. Bile also carries the toxins gathered by the liver out of the body.
Gallbladder function can become impaired for a variety of reasons. Read more

The liver is the only internal organ that regenerates itself, and it deserves a good cleaning to stay healthy, says Margaret Durst.

The liver is the body’s most important organ, functioning as a living filter to clean the system of toxins, metabolize proteins, control hormonal balance, and produce immune-boosting factors. Read more

If you’ve ever felt compelled to take another bite, despite feeling full, the problem may not be a lack of self control. In fact, the issue may not even be with you at all as it’s very likely that an excitotoxin is the culprit. These non-essential amino acids stimulate or “excite” the umami or savory taste buds making food seem more flavorful than it really is. These compounds are abundant in most processed foods and restaurant meals, and many people are unknowingly consuming these compounds in large amounts on a daily basis. Read more

Sarah C. Corriher reveals why zinc should be taken daily and how not all zinc supplements are created equal.
According to many pharmacists, zinc is the single greatest dietary supplement. Chemists, pharmacists and doctors alike glorify zinc supplementation. Some of them maintain that zinc will ward off all sickness. While this is not entirely true, zinc does nonetheless fight the rhinovirus, which is responsible for about a third of the common colds in adults, along with many other illnesses which exhibit flu-like symptoms. Zinc boosts the overall immune system to fight infections and speed recovery times. It is therefore a useful supplement for almost everyone. Deficiencies of zinc have been shown in studies to lead to decreased thyroid hormone levels, and hypothyroidism. Zinc supplementation is absolutely vital for pregnant women. If zinc was given to every mother-to-be, then a large portion of birth abnormalities, pre-eclampsia occurrences, and deformations could be avoided. Give zinc the same respect that you would give to folate (the superior version of folic acid) and calcium during pregnancy. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola says that full-fat dairy products may reduce your risk of diabetes and other health problems.
Most mainstream dietary advice recommends low-fat or non-fat dairy. But a growing number of experts argue that it’s far healthier to eat and drink whole dairy products, with all the fat left in.
Dairy foods contain roughly 50 to 60 percent saturated fat, and conventional thinking is that saturated fat is bad for your heart. This idea has been thoroughly refuted as false. It’s a mistaken interpretation of the science. In a 2010 analysis,1 scientists said:
More recently, research presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Vienna, Austria, found that eating full-fat dairy products such as whole milk, cream, cheese, and butter, reduces your risk of developing diabetes. Read more“…There is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of [coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease].”

Margaret Durst reveals twenty signs that you may not be getting enough essential fats.
Essential Fats are vital to our health. They help regulate body chemistry at every level. All cells in our bodies use fats as part of the membrane that lets the right things in and keeps the wrong things out. Good fats also help keep tissues lubricated and supple. Most people are deficient in good fats because they are not present in the typical American diet, and the types of fats that are present in typical diets actually block the action of good fats. Good fats are also depleted by eating too much refined grain – particularly wheat and corn.
Bad fats are known for increasing inflammation, increasing cholesterol, increasing blood clotting, and disrupting hormone balances. Good fats help decrease inflammation, decrease cholesterol, decrease blood clotting and balance hormones. Here is a list of symptoms of essential fat deficiency: Read more

Are you taking any of these common over-the-counter and prescription drugs that Christina Sarich says destroy your brain?
You wouldn’t think that taking a little pain pill would cause long term cognitive impairment, but that’s just one of the commonly prescribed (or even OTC) pharmaceutical medications which were studied in a six-year test to see what kind of neurological damage was caused. Unfortunately, the research found that these pharmaceuticals, commonly taken for a variety of common medical conditions including insomnia, allergies, or incontinence, cause long-term damage to the brain. The findings point to a class of drugs called anticholinergics, which block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter. Read more

The scientists from New York and Kansas also highlight a recent study of 8,670 French adults which found no link between salt and high blood pressure. Read more

Researcher''s have discovered that cinnamon helps treat not only Parkinson's disease, but also several other serious diseases.
Americans were shocked and saddened when Robin Williams committed suicide following a long history of depression. Another shock followed; the beloved comic was fighting Parkinson's disease, a devastating condition that causes tremors and problems walking.
There is no cure for Parkinson's, but a common spice — cinnamon — may be able to help stop its progression.
Cinnamon has been used for flavoring everything from toothpaste to herbal teas— including mom's apple pie — and it has been a staple in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to help improve circulation and digestion. Modern studies are finding even more uses for the versatile spice, including putting the brakes on Parkinson's disease.
According to studies, cinnamon's healthy effects may be due to its ability to reduce inflammation and to have antioxidant effects, or that it may fight bacteria. Below are studies that show some of the conditions cinnamon can help combat: Read more

Diet is a major factor in the development of cardiovascular disease. These four delicious foods have been shown to lower cholesterol and protect the heart.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 71 million Americans, or 33.5 percent of the total population, suffer from high LDL cholesterol. Only one in three of these individuals has their condition under control, while less than half of them choose to treat it at all. Moreover, the average total cholesterol for adult Americans is around 200 mg/dL, which is borderline high risk. (1) We are, in short, at greater risk of heart disease than ever before.
Though doctors love to throw statins and other drugs at people with high cholesterol, an improvement in diet is a far safer and more effective long-term solution to the problem. Most whole foods are likely to reduce LDL and total cholesterol to some degree, but the foods listed below are especially effective in this regard. Read more

Got shingles? You should not visit your doctor, says C. Thomas Corriher .
Shingles (herpes zoster) is a secondary outbreak of the chicken pox virus. It can happen decades after the original infection. It is usually less severe the second time. It may occur for people who have had either chicken pox or the chicken pox vaccination. It is often caused by the vaccine, and people who get the vaccine strain years after a vaccination get a much worse version of shingles. It is an opportunistic virus that will strike whenever the immune system is sufficiently impaired. Those who have never contracted chicken pox are at risk of contracting it from people with shingles. When it first occurs, shingles usually appears in circular patterns. Read more

Eating in certain situations is a big reason people gain weight, says Edward Group.
Almost 70% of adults in America are considered overweight, and 35% are classified as obese. If rates continue, and many experts believe they will, 75% of the population will be either overweight or obese by the year 2020. Anyone who glances at the statistics knows something is clearly not right. What could be causing this sharp rise in weight-related issues?
One of the main reasons we have such a problem with obesity and digestive complaints in the world today is that people are not eating their meals in a parasympathetic state.  It turns out that it’s not just what you eat, but how, when, and where you eat that makes a difference. While hardly anyone is mentioning this root cause to common weight issues, it is a topic that is nevertheless important to discuss in order to tackle one of the world’s leading health problems.

Is vitamin C worth taking? Don't ask your doctor, says Bill Sardi.
According to one self-proclaimed authority, vitamin C therapy is nothing but health quackery. [Quackwatch.com] WebMD advises physicians that supplemental vitamin C is only marginally able to reduce symptoms and duration of the common cold. But the primary study referred to employed just 200 milligrams of vitamin C, barely enough to marginally raise blood levels of this essential vitamin. [WebMD June 20, 2012]
None of this negative science discouraged laboratory researchers in China however. They inoculated mice with influenza virus and then injected 3 milligrams of vitamin C per gram of body weight. (Laboratory rats weigh about 300-500 grams.) [University of Wisconsin] So these animals were injected with 900-1500 mg vitamin C. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola says skipping breakfast is good for you - and for more reasons than just weight loss.
Contrary to popular belief, breakfast is not the most important meal of the day. In fact, omitting breakfast, as part of an intermittent fasting schedule, can have many important health benefits, from improving your insulin/leptin sensitivity to helping your body more effectively burn fat for fuel.
Longer bouts of fasting have also been shown to have potent health benefits, including the regeneration of your immune system, as demonstrated in recent research. Read more

Elizabeth Renter says that by eating certain foods you may be able to starve cancer.
There is little doubt that a healthy diet can help reduce your risk of cancer, but did you know that certain foods can assist in the annihilation of existing cancer cells as well, helping your body to fight off the potentially fatal disease? These foods encourage something called angiogenesis, and could hold the key to an anti-cancer diet.
Angiogenesis is the process of new blood vessels forming from existing vessels. Generally, it’s a good thing, but in the case of tumors, angiogenesis can be negative, feeding the cancer and advancing it. Read more

If it is drunk strong, black, without sugar, and in moderation, it could help keep teeth health. Read more

Can mushrooms really fight cancer? Yes! Here's how.
Mushrooms are unique when it comes to classifying them as a food source. Though many people might identify them as vegetables when pressed to categorize them, mushrooms are actually neither a plant nor an animal. Instead, they are a fungus, and one that has been prized for centuries for its properties that tend to lead to good health. Read more

Fingernail health can help diagnose possible diseases of the body, says Joshua Krause.
Imagine if you didn’t have access to the internet. What if you didn’t even have any medical or nutrition books to help guide you? And what if there wasn’t a doctor of any kind, for miles around? To compound these issues further, what if this hypothetical situation you’re in lasted for several years?
This is a major dilemma for Preppers, because we would no doubt face medical emergencies from time to time, especially from those conditions that are chronic in nature. It could be from a lack of nutrition, radiation, or chemicals slowly leaching into our environment from our eroding infrastructure. In any long term survival scenario, Preppers need a basic understanding of how to spot chronic conditions. There is often nothing more telling, than observing our fingernails. Read more

Gaye Levy lists fourteen essential oils for emergency use and survival.
The world is a scary place. It is not as though we are intentionally trying to live dangerously, it kind of, sort of just happens. I am being more than a little bit facetious when I say that because surely there is more to it than that. Sure, natural disasters happen without provocation or warning but there are dozens of other scary events that occur that are not-so-natural. Sickness, war, civil unrest, nuclear Armageddon – these things that are within our sphere of reality.
Rather than fear and cower at the thought of these disruptive and frightening events, we prepare. This is not by chance. If you are reading this than you recognize that being prepared and living a preparedness lifestyle is purposeful and intentional. It does not happen by accident and it does not happen without of bit of work coupled with time and resources. Read more

If you have high blood pressure, medication is not the only treatment, according to Michael Ravensthorpe.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 67 million Americans – approximately one in three adults – suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure. In 2009 alone, high blood pressure was the primary or contributing cause of almost 350,000 deaths in the United States, which averages at 1,000 deaths per day. The disorder is, in essence, an epidemic in the Western world.
Though high blood pressure can be triggered by stress and other external factors, a poor diet remains its single greatest cause. Therefore, consuming foods that are proven to contain significant cardiovascular benefits is a great way to prevent and treat the disorder naturally. The best of these foods are listed below.

Todd Walker reveals how to get natural relief from the painful, blistering rash from poison ivy, poison oak, and more.
pon·der – to think about or consider (something) carefullySpend any amount of time in the outdoors or in your yard, it’s very likely you’ll come in contact with this evil plant. It has successfully reduced men, women, and children to miserable, scratching beasts.Time in nature has a calming, rejuvenating effect on people… until they feel Nature’s revenge.
Over the years I’ve sought out home remedies to stop the painful, blistering rash caused by poison ivy. In my experience, some work, some don’t. In extreme cases, I’ve gotten steroid shots. Like the time I transferred the oil to my nether region while relieving myself in the woods – the week before getting married! An injection of steroids was my top priority. LOL! Read more

Lisa Egan reveals the many new uses of coconut you might want to try.
“He who plants a coconut tree, plants food and drink, vessels and clothing, a home for himself and a heritage for his children.” ~ South Seas saying
Chances are, you pass right by an amazing, versatile, and nutritious item in your local market without giving it much thought – the coconut.
Commonly referred to as a fruit, a nut, or a seed, the furry-looking coconut is botanically classified as a drupe, which is a fruit with a hard covering enclosing the seed. Other drupes include peaches, plums, and cherries.
Coconuts are often called the “Tree of Life” because every part of the drupe and tree can be used. An ideal sustainable food crop, the roots, trunks, leaves, husks, fiber, fruit, water, sap, oil, milk and meat all are useful. The plant not only supplies food for millions of people, but also can be used to make skincare products, household cleaners, toys, instruments, furniture, housing, bowls, utensils, lighting fixtures, baskets, utility boxes, gardening planters, mattresses, draperies, upholstery, chicken feed, carbon-based water filters, and bio-diesel fuels.

Beware blood pressure and cholesterol guidelines if you are over 60, says Dr. David Brownstein.
At age 70–or 60, 50 or even 40– should you have the same blood pressure that you had at age 20? Many conventional doctors and most of the Powers-That-Be feel that the answer to that question is “yes”. Conventional medicine loves to issue guidelines. They have issued guidelines concerning weight, lipid and blood sugar levels and blood pressure. New guidelines inevitably result in millions of new patients requiring millions of new prescriptions. Big Pharma loves new guidelines. Read more

The best way to get a bigger butt is through exercise. In people who are fit, the size and shape of the butt is determined by the gluteal muscles or glutes, primarily the gluteus maximus and to a lessor extent, the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. Although bodybuilders go to a gym and perform squats, dead lifts, and lunges to build and shape these muscles, here are three exercises to get a bigger butt that don't take nearly as much time or money.

Statins increase breast cancer risk by 200%, according to a new study.
Why do one in seven women in the U.S. have breast cancer? Unfortunately, the Powers-That-Be are too busy prescribing chemotherapy, surgery and radiation instead of searching for the underlying reasons why so many U.S. women are suffering and dying with breast cancer. Unless we stop the flow of money to the Powers-That-Be, which includes the American Cancer Society and the Koman Foundation, there will never be progress made in this terrible illness.
Why do one in seven women have breast cancer? One reason is the use of synthetic hormones fed to animals and other synthetic hormones prescribed to women such as medroxyprogesterone including Provera. Another reason is statin medications. Read more

Instead of taking an aspirin a day, here are seven heart-health alternatives from Paul Fassa.
This is a sequel to an earlier article that spelled out the problems with daily aspirin to help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Garlic is a natural remedy for what ails modern civilization, says Bill Sardi.
Every day we read or hear about some biological threat, whether it be from a potentially deadly strain of the flu virus, a prevalent pathogenic bacterium in foods like Campylobacter in uncooked chicken meat; or a seemingly safe FDA-approved drug that has been found to be unsafe like aspirin that induces bleeding gastric ulcers and brain hemorrhages; or pollutants in the air or water like the endemic fungus that causes Valley Fever or chlorine that decontaminates our tap water but increases risk for colon cancer; or toxic heavy metals like mercury or lead in our dental fillings and roadways; or parasitic germs like H. pylori, Candida albicans or Streptococcus that are commonly harbored in our own digestive tract.
Then there is aging itself with all of the chronic diseases it brings with it – circulatory problems, insidious decline in vision from cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, as well as fatty liver, excessive sugar levels and numerous malignancies. Read more

Sugar is addictive, potentially harmful, and absolutely everywhere, but is sugar really a poison that should be kept out of vulnerable hands?
Recently an American doctor called Robert Lustig has been calling for laws that restrict sugar as if it were alcohol or tobacco. Like many people, I suspect, my initial reaction upon hearing this was: give me a break. Lustig, who thinks sugar is a dangerous poison, has considered several strategies. For instance, we could double the price of fizzy drinks, so children can’t afford them. We could get sweet shops to close in the afternoons, when children are going home from school. We could restrict the advertising of foods with added sugar.
We could even set an age limit for fizzy drinks, possibly 17, so younger kids can’t buy cans of Coke.
Dear me. Whatever next? It’s easy to understand the reasons for controlling tobacco and alcohol — these things are toxic and costly for everyone. If you smoke or get drunk, I end up paying your hospital bills; if you don’t smoke or drink, I pay less tax. So of course alcohol and tobacco should be restricted. Tobacco causes an array of diseases; alcohol can destroy your liver, and it also makes people shout and fight and vomit in the street. Both are addictive. Read more

Use coconut oil for your lotion and feel amazing, says Joshua Rogers.
Stop using any and every random lotion under the sun to care for your skin. The things you rub into your skin will be absorbed, not only by your skin, but they enter your bloodstream as well.
We need to stop slathering our epidermis all over with a concoction of compounds, additives, and yes, toxins. Odds are, you are likely already getting way too much of those wonderful materials in the air you breathe or the foods that you consume. And in the event that you’re caring for a baby, you absolutely should be certain to work with as many natural items as you can. That soft infant skin is much more sensitive than our own!
The quantity of infant care goods out there on the market today is simply amazing. Numerous distinct brands, ingredients, and too many guarantees made. Read more

Pathogens in your mouth can cause big trouble in distant parts of your body, says Joseph Mercola.Good oral hygiene is even more important than previously thought. Pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins can harm more than just your mouth when they circulate through your bloodstream—they can potentially cause secondary infections and chronic inflammation throughout your body.
The fact that oral pathogens can make their way to distant parts of your anatomy and cause serious problems has been known for many years.
Even dentists would agree that bacteria can pass from your gums into your bloodstream and on to your heart, which is why some still prescribe oral antibiotics to a few select patients with a particularly high risk for endocarditis, particularly if they have gingivitis.1
But it appears that the rare case of endocarditis is only the tip of the iceberg. Several studies now show that these oral pathogens—viruses as well as bacteria—may be linked to certain cancers, making it even more important to do take every step possible to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy.

Once demonized, eggs are a perfect source of protein and choline..
The second half of the twentieth century was not kind to eggs. The 1950s in particular were a time when eggs were demonized due to their high fat content, which pioneering nutritionists – notably Ancel Keys, developer of the notorious “lipid hypothesis“ – believed would raise cholesterol and contribute towards coronary heart disease. Today, however, we understand that fatty whole foods like eggs are an essential component of a healthy diet, particularly when they come from sustainable, organic sources. In fact, eggs have been a staple breakfast for people in many cultures for centuries. These people understood that if an egg contained enough nutrients to nourish an entire chick, then those same nutrients could nourish us to a similar extent – and studies now confirm that this is true.

Clean out the toxins that are storing fat in your body, says Margaret Durst.
Detoxification is a basic natural health solution. It is particularly important in this day and age when toxic chemicals are in our homes, our food, our air and our water – and of course, spring is a great time to think about cleaning.
A toxin is a substance that creates irritating and/or harmful effects to the body. Toxins tend to overwhelm our bodies and undermine our health over time. Signs of toxicity include lack of energy, forgetfulness, insomnia, digestive problems, arthritis and other joint related problems, bad breath or offensive body odor, acne, allergies, colitis, lower back pain, depression, neurological problems, etc. Read more

Exercise benefits such as preventing obesity and diabetes, reducing stress, and lowering your blood pressure are among the most obvious. Maintaining a fitness regimen can also go a long way toward warding off a stroke, as all of these factors also affect your stroke risk. Read more

Joseph Mercola reveals how to rebuild knee cartilage without an arthroscopic operation.
Arthroscopic knee surgery is one of the most common unnecessary surgeries performed today—along with back and hip surgeries, pacemakers, cardiac angioplasties, hysterectomies, and Cesarean sections.
Several studies over the past decade have highlighted questions about arthroscopic knee surgery, and now, you can add one more to the pile. The meniscus inside your knee is a thin crescent-shaped disc of cartilage that serves as a cushion between your femur and tibia and helps stabilize your knees. Read more
