The Healthy Body Pak is 90 for Life

The Healthy Body Pak ™ is the minimum nutritional supplement combination that ensures you get "The Mighty 90" vitamins & minerals. It's also referred to as "The 90 for Life", formulated by Dr. Joel Wallach.

Your body needs 90 essential nutrients

True health and wellness is only possible if it radiates from a solid, fundamentally-sound center. There is a core group of 90 essential nutrients that have the most positive effect in bringing vibrant health to the body’s complex multi-dimensional systems.

Happy & Healthy with Start Pak Nutrition

Did you know that only 8-12% of the typical nutritional supplements available today are actually absorbed by your body? That means that approximately 90% of typical supplements are flushed down the drain.

Youngevity’s supplements are 90-98% absorbable! Why is there such a difference? The secret is our exclusive source of plant-derived minerals that dramatically increase bioavailability (absorbability).

"Every man, woman and child needs 90 essential nutrients just to survive, much less to thrive. To put the odds in your favor to live as long as possible, with the highest possible quality of life, you must get these nutrients every day.”

~ Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND

Breast Milk Cancer Cure? Scientists Discover Tumor Destroying Molecules

by | Natural News

The cure for cancer can come from the very substance that sustained us during the earliest stage of our lives. Scientists accidentally discovered that a substance in breast milk could be the answer to killing tumor cells. Nicknamed Hamlet (Human alpha-lactalbumin made lethal to tumor cells), the possible cancer cure reportedly attacked cancer cells without harming healthy cells. Moreover, it doesn’t have any of the crippling side effects of chemotherapy.

Breast Milk

By Shivani shrivastav (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0)]

The surprise discovery triggered further studies to find out if Hamlet could have similar effects on patients with cervical and bowel cancer after trials on bladder cancer patients yielded positive results. Hamlet — a protein called alpha-lactalbumin — helped patients shed off dead tumor cells days after treatment.

“We were looking for novel antimicrobial agents, and new breast milk is a very good source of these. During one experiment we needed human cells and bacteria to be present, and we chose human tumor cells for practical reasons,” said Professor Catharina Svanborg, Immunologist at Lund University in Sweden and main proponent of the study.

Once it hit the gut, Hamlet attacked cancer cells by side-stepping the cells’ outer defenses and going for the mitochondria, which is the cell’s power station. After that, it proceeded to the nucleus, cutting off the cell’s energy source, resulting in apoptosis, which is suicide for cells.

“To our amazement, when we added this compound of milk, the tumor cells died. It was a totally serendipitous discovery,” added Professor Svanborg, who had been studying breast milk for the past two decades. She and post-graduate student Anders Hakansson were initially experimenting with breast milk to figure out how it fights off germs when they made the discovery.

According to an article on Telegraph.co.uk, they were startled to discover that cancer cells started disappearing. Upon closer look, they found out that the breast milk was making the cells die. They repeated the experiment and came up with the same result. They were using non-cancerous cells in previous experiments and in those times, the cells didn’t die. Similarly, in-vitro experiments proved that alpha-lactalbumin produced a protein-lipid complex that killed cancer cells.

Svanborg patented the discovery and published her work, only to be met with skepticism. But years of continuous research helped her break new grounds and slowly win over critics. Her team has now gathered conclusive scientific data that show Hamlet can kill more than 40 cancers.

The tests were conducted on humans and animals. They discovered that Hamlet limited the development of brain tumor and bladder and colon cancer in mice. In a human test, nine bladder cancer patients were administered with Hamlet a week before surgery. The result: Eight patients passed tumor cells in their urine two hours after the treatment.

Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the country. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 600,920 Americans are expected to succumb to the disease in 2017. That’s more than 1,000 patients per day.

On the other side of the globe, Metro.co.uk published a story about a cancer patient currently drinking breast milk in hopes of curing his disease. Fred Whitelaw, 64, was diagnosed with bowel cancer back in 2015. His daughter, Jill Turner, who had given birth in October, read about breast milk’s purported effects on cancer cells. She started giving her dad excess breast milk. Although there’s still no definite scientific results, Whitelaw believes he’s at the point where he has nothing to lose.

The game-changing discovery provides hope for all cancer patients. Svanborg’s team has already discovered how to mass produce a synthetic form of Hamlet, which means it can now be developed into a treatment.

Big Pharma Billionaire Arrested, Charged with Conspiracy & Bribery of Doctors

by

Big Pharma Billionaire Arrested

(Natural News) I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

From the DCNF:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) charged John Kapoor, 74, and seven other current and former executives at the pharmaceutical company with racketeering for a leading a national conspiracy through bribery and fraud to coerce the illegal distribution of the company’s fentanyl spray, which is intended for use as a pain killer by cancer patients. The company’s stock prices fell more than 20 percent following the arrests, according to the New York Post.

Kapoor stepped down as the company’s CEO in January amid ongoing federal probes into their Subsys product, a pain-relieving spray that contains fentanyl, a highly-addictive synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is more than 50 times stronger than morphine, and ingesting just two milligrams is enough to cause an adult to fatally overdose.

The series of arrests came just hours after President Donald Trump officially declared the country’s opioid epidemic a national emergency. Drug overdoses led to 64,070 deaths in 2016, which is more than the amount of American lives lost in the entire Vietnam War.

As the opioid crisis has developed, more and more states have begun holding doctors and opioid manufacturers accountable for over-prescribing and over-producing the highly-addictive painkillers.

“We will be bringing some major lawsuits against people and companies that are hurting our people,” Trump said Thursday. He also spoke about a program similar to Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” initiative.

“More than 20,000 Americans died of synthetic opioid overdoses last year, and millions are addicted to opioids. And yet some medical professionals would rather take advantage of the addicts than try to help them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “This Justice Department will not tolerate this.  We will hold accountable anyone – from street dealers to corporate executives — who illegally contributes to this nationwide epidemic.  And under the leadership of President Trump, we are fully committed to defeating this threat to the American people.

President Trump is bringing the war to Big Pharma’s doorstep

Under President Trump, who continues to fight to end the drug cartels and health care monopolies that are destroying this nation, we may see more and more drug companies finally facing the legal scrutiny they deserve for engaging in the mass medical murder of Americans with dangerous, deadly drugs.

And then there’s the question of vaccines, the autism cover-up and the criminal racket run by the CDC, Big Pharma and the lying mainstream media. When that medical fraud and corruption scandal blows sky-high, we may see dozens of pharmaceutical officials going to prison.

50,000 Costco Customers Urge Company to Reject GM Salmon

By Jennifer Lilley | Natural News

50,000 Costco Customers Urge Company to Reject GM Salmon

(NaturalNews) While popular food markets such as Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Kroger and Safeway have made it clear that they do not intend to sell genetically engineered fish, Costco remains silent on the matter. Their hesitation in declaring a voice when it comes to GM salmon has worried many who want to consume only wild-caught salmon instead of lab creations of the fish.(1)

The public’s dissatisfaction with Costco’s silence has become so heated that petitions and pledges have flourished. Most notable is the 50,000-signature goal that was set, and met, by Seattle, Washington’s Community Alliance for Global Justice (CAGJ). The group is dedicated to keeping only fresh, wild salmon in Costco and urging the mega store to avoid getting caught up in GMO madness.(1)

“They’ve been evading saying they will sell it,” said Danielle Friedman, who is with CAGJ. In addition to obtaining signatures, CAGJ has also been involved in holding protests at the Seattle Costco in hopes of raising awareness about the issue and of course, getting the store to make the right decision.(1)

Several groups urging consumers to sign petitions, say no to GM salmon
SumofUs.org, a group of workers and consumers focused on preventing large corporations from gaining total control of human rights, including the foods they consume, has also gone the petition route. This particular pledge is called “Costco: Pledge not to sell GMO salmon” and features an image of a cartoon-like salmon with three eyes, a Costco tag attached to its side. As of this writing, they were approximately 2,000 signatures shy of their 50,000 goal.(2,3)

Another website involved in taking up this important cause is Change.org, which is requesting people petition against the possibility of Costco selling Franken-salmon. That petition says, “Tell Costco CEO Craig Jelinek: Say NO to Genetically Modified Salmon!” The page informs people of the dangers of eating GMO foods, reminding them that it’s been linked to allergy risks and worse, greater risks of an increase in growth hormone associated with cancer.(4)

Change.org even includes a letter to Jelinek, strongly urging him to turn keep customer health top of mind. It states, in part:

Genetically modified AquaBounty salmon has not been adequately tested for human or environmental safety. In some tests, the fish were show to have a 40% higher chance of causing an allergic reaction in humans. The fish also have high levels of a growth hormone linked to cancer. Please stand up for your customers today by refusing to sell genetically modified salmon at Costco stores.(4)

Many who have signed the Change.org petition have elaborated on the issue, expressing their desire for Costco to keep GM salmon out of their stores.

People angered over Costco’s silence: “Why add something this questionable?”
For example, Bonnie Barnett of Prescott, Arizona, wrote, “Costco does a great job of providing more choices in healthy foods every year. Why add something this questionable?”(4)

Mary Johnson, another person who signed the petition, agrees with Barnett. Johnson, who is from Chehalis, Washington, was even more direct in her anti-GM salmon stance.

“The Pacific Salmon is having a hard enough time already without the possibility of these Genetically Modified beasts escaping their pens and competing with them for food,” Johnson wrote on Change.org. “Please, we do not want to eat these fish, and we do not want them in our environment. GMO’s are not the answer to hunger, they are merely a vehicle with which corporate farmers and biotech firms can make more and more and more money at the expense
of the people and the planet.”(4)

It’s obvious that the majority of people oppose GM foods and absolutely do not want lab monster fish in their stores. The question is, will Costco heed the health warnings linked to such foods and more importantly, consider the thousands of signatures and the wishes of its customer base?

Epidemiologist for CDC Says He’d NEVER Give His Pregnant Wife a Flu Shot

By Christina Sarich | Natural Society

Epidemiologist for CDC Says He Would 'NEVER Give His Pregnant Wife' a Flu Shot

Dr. William Thompson used to work for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US. The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older, but Dr Thompson admits he would never give his pregnant wife a flu shot because many contain thimerosal, a mercury-containing adjuvant that he warns can be linked to toxic effects and “autism-like-features.”

You can watch a video here, uploaded by the Autism Media Channel, of Dr. Thompson speaking very clearly about his concerns. The question is – why is this not in the mainstream media? The notion that a CDC official would make this statement is very interesting.Dr. Thompson has co-authored papers on the subject that have shown up in the New England Journal of Medicine, one, for instance, titled, “Early Thimerosal Exposure and Neuropsychological Outcomes at 7 to 10 Years.” This paper was published in 2007.

He has said, specifically:

“I don’t know why they still give it to pregnant women . . . That’s the last person I would give mercury to.”

He also states that:

“. . .tics are four times more prevalent in kids with autism. . . There is biologic plausibility to say that thimersol is causing autism-like features.”

These findings have been dismissed even considering the fact that the New England Journal of Medicine is considered one of the most authentic journals in which to public’s medical information. It’s the CDC’s gold standard. The journal is even listed on their website as a reference point, yet they continue to promote vaccines containing thimerosal.

This adjuvant has been used in vaccines since the 1930s; however, the dosing schedule for vaccines has continued to increase since that time (and the American Dental Association also started telling dental patients that mercury fillings were O.K. to put in their teeth.)

The University of Calgary has a video showing what happens to a neuron at even low-level exposure of mercury – after only twenty minutes of exposure of mercury in tiny amounts, neurons began to rapidly degenerate.

A global treaty was even signed last year to reduce the prevalence of mercury. If even a former employee of the CDC says that thimerosal is dangerous, why then are vaccines still made with this adjuvant at all, and people not given very clear warning before they consent to an injection with this substance? The issue is with this additive.

The mainstream media continues to promote thimerosal-containing vaccines made by companies like the RAND corporation. Major retailers like Walgreen’s and CVS can’t wait to give you a flu shot. They even offered ‘flu shot’ gift cards over the holidays.

Half of Children Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT

By ANH-USA

Half of Children Autistic by 2025, Warns Senior Research Scientist at MIT

Roundup Causes Autism says top MIT Scientist

Why? Evidence points to glyphosate toxicity from the overuse of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide on our food.

For over three decades, Stephanie Seneff, PhD, has researched biology and technology, over the years publishing over 170 scholarly peer-reviewed articles [1]. In recent years she has concentrated on the relationship between nutrition and health, tackling such topics as Alzheimer’s, autism, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health.

At a conference last Thursday, in a special panel discussion about GMOs, she took the audience by surprise when she declared, “At today’s rate, by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” She noted that the side effects of autism closely mimic those of glyphosate toxicity, and presented data showing a remarkably consistent correlation [2] between the use of Roundup on crops (and the creation of Roundup-ready GMO crop seeds) with rising rates of autism. Children with autism have biomarkers indicative of excessive glyphosate, including zinc and iron deficiency, low serum sulfate, seizures, and mitochondrial disorder.

A fellow panelist reported [3] that after Dr. Seneff’s presentation, “All of the 70 or so people in attendance were squirming, likely because they now had serious misgivings about serving their kids, or themselves, anything with corn or soy, which are nearly all genetically modified and thus tainted with Roundup and its glyphosate.”

Dr. Seneff noted the ubiquity of glyphosate’s use. Because it is used on corn and soy, all soft drinks and candies sweetened with corn syrup and all chips and cereals that contain soy fillers have small amounts of glyphosate in them, as do our beef and poultry since cattle and chicken are fed GMO corn or soy. Wheat is often sprayed with Roundup just prior to being harvested, which means that all non-organic bread and wheat products would also be sources of glyphosate toxicity. The amount of glyphosate in each product may not be large, but the cumulative effect (especially with as much processed food as Americans eat) could be devastating. A recent study [4] shows that pregnant women living near farms where pesticides are applied have a 60% increased risk of children having an autism spectrum disorder.

Other toxic substances may also be autism-inducing. You may recall our story on the CDC whistleblower [5] who revealed the government’s deliberate concealment of the link between the MMR vaccine (for measles, mumps, and rubella) and a sharply increased risk of autism, particularly in African American boys. Other studies now show [6] a link between children’s exposure to pesticides and autism. Children who live in homes with vinyl floors, which can emit phthalate chemicals, are more likely to have autism. Children whose mothers smoked were also twice as likely to have autism. Research now acknowledges that environmental contaminants such as PCBs, PBDEs, and mercury can alter brain neuron functioning even before a child is born.

This month, the USDA released a study [7] finding that although there were detectable levels of pesticide residue in more than half of food tested by the agency, 99% of samples taken were found to be within levels the government deems safe, and 40% were found to have no detectable trace of pesticides at all. The USDA added, however, that due to “cost concerns,” it did not test for residues of glyphosate. Let’s repeat that: they never tested for the active ingredient in the most widely used herbicide in the world. “Cost concerns”? How absurd—unless they mean it will cost them too much in terms of the special relationship between the USDA and Monsanto. You may recall the revolving door between Monsanto and the federal government, with agency officials becoming high-paying executives—and vice versa! Money, power, prestige: it’s all there. Monsanto and the USDA love to scratch each others’ backs.

Finding Happiness Through Suffering: 8 Ways To Find Light in the Darkness

The Mind Unleashed

Finding Happiness Through Suffering

The journey of life can feature mountain peaks of happiness and valleys of suffering. Unfortunately the moments of happiness tend to be fleeting and the moments of suffering seem to go on for forever. Did you know that it is possible to find happiness through suffering without having to look up at the next mountain peak you’re trying to climb? The key to finding happiness through suffering is to actively seek out contentment.

Being content in difficult times can be extremely hard to do. How is it possible to give thanks in the darkest of times? Here are some methods that have been proven to work.

#1. Stop comparing your life to the lives of others around you. When you’re in a deep valley and you see someone up at the summit of a mountain experiencing joy, it can hurt. A lot. You want to be on that summit of joy as well, right? The problem is that in looking at the lives of others, we’re missing the perfect moments that are surrounding us right now. By actively seeking the extraordinary when we feel like we are having an ordinary day, it becomes easier to be content in any circumstance that is faced.

#2. Strength is created through overcoming adversity. One common phrase we like to tell each other in the dark times is that “What doesn’t kill us will make us stronger.” Although that’s a hollow platitude when we’re in our darkest hours, there is some truth to those words.

  • Parents who have lost children to cancer become strong enough to help other parents in a similar situation.
  • Widows can console other widows.
  • Bullied children can become a counseling resource for kids who feel like they don’t fit in.

The experience of adversity is what creates the strength, especially when we find a way to blaze a trail through it.

#3. Little things are still able to bring you some joy. Imagine being in a dark room for longer than you remember. You’re hungry, tired, thirsty, and ready for the physical suffering to end. Loneliness, confusion, and perhaps anger are present as well, creating the circumstances of emotional suffering. Just a drop of water, a bite to eat, or some sunshine on your face will grant a respite and that brings joy. Even on the worst of worst days, if you can bring yourself toward something that you love, then a moment of joy can relieve the suffering. Those perfect moments eventually add up and bring you one step closer to the next mountain summit.

#4. Fate isn’t in control of your life. When we are encountering a valley of suffering, the typical question asked is this: Why? There really is no good answer to that question. We all ask it because we want a tangible explanation for our circumstances. If we get facts, then we can get out of the valley more quickly – at least that’s the theory. In reality, it is you who are in control of how you feel and what you want to do. External factors can try to affect your joy, but you either choose to allow those factors to influence you or to ignore them. Happiness is a choice that you can always make.

City Goes Fluoride-Free for Christmas

by Christina Sarich

Fluoride-Free

Overturning a 60-Year Public Health Hazard Law

As of December 31, the City of Prince George, British Columbia, Canada will be fluoride-free for the first time since October 4, 1954 – finally escaping from municipal water fluoridation toxicity in 60 years.

A vote to end fluoridation took place in November of this year, and it was unanimously accepted by the new Mayor and Council, expressing the wishes of Prince George residents.

The unanimous decision to end fluoridation comes with the dismantling and removal of all fluoridation equipment and hazardous waste storage tanks. This also means that as a province, British Columbia is now close to 98% FLUORIDE FREE – by choice.

Just to clarify, and to dispel the propaganda which states that fluoride is safe – calcium fluoride appears naturally in underground water sources and even seawater. Enough of it can cause skeletal or dental fluorosis, which weakens bone and dental matter. But it is not nearly as toxic, nor does it negatively affect so many other health issues as sodium fluoride, which is added to many water supplies.

Sodium Fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries.

This is why so many communities who look into water fluoridation ultimately end up discontinuing the practice. Actually, Most developed nations in the world have rejected fluoridation, including 97% of western Europe. This, while the United States fluoridates more than 70% of its water supplies. According to the British Fluoridation Society, there are more people drinking artificially fluoridated water in the United States than all other countries combined. But as mentioned fluoridation is ending in more US communities every day.

Huge Win: Monsanto Stock Downgraded After Worst Growth in 7 Years

By Christina Sarich | Natural Society

Monsanto Stock Downgraded After Worst Growth in 7 Years

Here’s one for the history books, and a slap on the wrist for stock-holders like Bill Gates and George Soros. Monsanto stock has been downgraded to ‘Neutral’ from ‘Buy’ after an annual seed dealer industry survey showed bleak returns.

This may be the most depressing news in seven years for Monsanto, but great news for the seed industry, which has been monopolized by the chemical peddler since the early 1990s. The target price for (MON +0.1%) has been lowered from $140 to $127. Conditions affecting the downgrade include “greater discounting, reduced trait purchases, reduced spending on seeds, and share gains for non-major seeds brands” – with hardly a mention of the grass-roots, and international efforts of people to shine a light on Monsanto’s illegal influence on the world seed market.

“We are downgrading Monsanto from Buy to Neutral, due to the findings from our seventh Annual Seed Dealer Survey, which came back the most negative for the seed industry in the history of the survey,” Chris Shaw of Monness Crespi Hardt wrote. “The unprecedented results of this year’s survey has led us to be more cautious on Monsanto’s outlook for the current seed selling season.”

The firm who conducted the survey said the 50-plus dealers who responded are seeing challenging industry conditions – including greater discounting as a second straight year of significantly lower farm profits forces farmers to watch their spending closely, including on seeds. Could this be due to the outright false advertising by Monsanto that their GMO seeds would increase yields and be impervious to glyphosate and other herbicides?

You Want To Vaccinate My Child? Just Sign This Form

By Dave Mihalovic | Prevent Disease

You Want To Vaccinate My Child? Just Sign This FormI have yet to meet a Physician that will sign this form now downloaded by hundreds of parents. The reason they won’t sign is two-fold: First, they do not want to place themselves in a vulnerable position of being negligent for not providing informed consent to thousands of other parents; and second, many of them realize after their own extensive research that the risks far outweigh any benefits when it comes to vaccination.

It’s been over a year since hundreds of parents have downloaded this form and there are still no reports of any signatures. Many physicians won’t even look at the form while they dismiss a parent’s anti-vaccination stance as ridiculous. The behavior is a clear indication of a very misinformed Physician who does not have his or her patient’s best interests at heart. They are not willing to inform their patients of the risks, only the benefits they feel are acceptable. They are not open-minded to any other side of the debate except their own biased view passed down through the medical system.

Then are those Physicians who have questioned the vaccination schedules and will pursue their own research. Many of them are now awakening themselves thanks to ongoing research and pressure from parents and even other colleagues to look at other perspectives besides their own indoctrination. If you are pressured by any Physician to vaccinate, please download and print this form (and send us a Physician signed copy if possible). Assertively state to your Doctor that it is the only way you will fully informed to consider vaccination, and that an analyses of the risks and benefits will better allow you evaluate the decision.

100% of Physicians approached with this form have so far declined to sign it.

Hepatitis B

I understand that 60 percent of patients who are vaccinated for Hepatitis B will lose detectable antibodies to Hepatitis B within 12 years. I understand that in 1996 only 54 cases of Hepatitis B were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 year age group. I understand that in the VAERS, there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from Hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 year age group, with 47 deaths reported.

I understand that 50 percent of patients who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure. I understand that 30 percent will develop only flu-like symptoms and will have lifetime immunity. I understand that 20 percent will develop the symptoms of the disease, but that 95 percent will fully recover and have lifetime immunity.

I understand that 5 percent of the patients who are exposed to Hepatitis B will become chronic carriers of the disease. I understand that 75 percent of the chronic carriers will live with an asymptomatic infection and that only 25 percent of the chronic carriers will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. The following scientific studies have been performed to demonstrate the safety of the Hepatitis B vaccine in children under the age of 5 years.

The Bright Side Mission Pt. 3

Bright Side Mission Philosophy – Simplify!

– The Bright Side regards the body as a divine biological system that heals itself if it is supplied properly with the raw materials it needs. The Bright Side Mission philosophy is about FEEDING, not FIXING.

(In case you missed them The Bright Side Mission Pt. 1, and The Bright Side Mission Pt. 2)

Bright Side Mission Pt. 3 - Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

Bright Side Mission Pt. 3 – Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

o The bright side is committed to the idea that the body is brilliant and forgiving and can turn on dime. The healing process can begin in a moment’s notice if we begin to change the choices we make. Depending on how far the rabbit hole we’ve gone, we can be the immediate beneficiaries of the body’s healing system.

o 70 – 80% of the health issues in the U.S. are degenerative diseases, and doctors cannot do ANYTHING about this condition. You can help yourself, though!

o The body needs nutrition, respiration, movement (to generate electrical energy and deliver nutrients), and long periods of relaxation rest (for the growth to take place)

– The Bright Side Philosophy believes that the body is well, that we’re not sick, but rather, we’re starving.

o Healing and health must occur first as a belief system, idea, or philosophy before it can progress physically

o This is what PB means when he says that health and wellness is:

§ Spiritual first

§ Mental/emotional second

§ Physical – last, and only if the first two are fulfilled

o The Bright Side is not as much a nutrition show as it is a show about the glory and greatness of the human being and body

– Therefore, make sure that you are nourishing yourself providing yourself with the necessary nutrients before you go off looking for salvation from herbs, drugs, and exotic elements that are not part of the body’s essential line up of nutrition

– Digestive wellness is fundamental and primal; if you get nothing else from The Bright Side philosophy, you should understand that when you fix the digestive system and digestive health, all the dominoes of disease will start to fall down

– The job of a healing professional should be to make themselves obsolete and put the power and responsibility back with the patient

o We need to be our own doctors, nutritionists, and dieticians!

– The Bright Side puts forward many ideas that fly in the face of much of what we know to be “True” about health and staying well. One of the most important and radical ideas is that our symptoms are NOT the problem.

o We want to begin to work with the idea that our… migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, acne, psoriasis, hypertension… whatever our challenges are, it’s not as much the problem as it is a pointer to the solution.

o We get signals and signs that our biochemical train has gotten off track.

– On the Bright Side, we always want to look for patterns and simplicity. Using pharmacological to heal the body is almost always doomed to failure.

– The Bright Side philosophy is about simplification, about addressing causes, not merely addressing symptoms or addressing numbers on a chart

o On the Bright Side, we always want to look for patterns and simplicity. Using pharmacological to heal the body is almost always doomed to failure.

o If you try to address your problem at the symptom level, you are going to go insane, especially as you get older and the symptoms start to pile up

o The Bright Side Way is that there are certain biochemical tweaks that have to be made. After that’s done, make sure you’re getting the necessary raw building materials, that you are oxygenating through deep breathing, hydrating, and then… get out of the way!

One of the main principles that underlies “The Bright Side Philosophy” is that symptoms don’t matter.

o If we really want to be effective in restoring our God-mandated status of health, we should be concerned about WHY we have our symptoms, not what the symptom(s) is (are).

It’s not the diagnosis that counts; it’s the breakdown that counts

o Alzheimer’s Disease is arthritis of the brain – arthritis is a breakdown of the body at the joint level; Alzheimer’s Disease is a breakdown of the body at the brain level

o Psoriasis is Celiac Disease on the skin: one is on the skin, the other is in the intestines

o Varicose veins are hemorrhoids of the legs

o Wrinkles are osteoporosis of the face

– All disease boils down to tissue not growing as it should – cells that make up tissue are not growing as they should; that is what ALL degenerative disease is about, period. There are only two reasons why this happens:

o #1: The cell is starving of nutrients (water and breathing are considered nutrients)

o #2: The cell is suffocating in its own waste and toxicity

– The medical model does nothing but confuse and obfuscate, and makes people give up on taking care of themselves because it all just seems too complex. The Bright Side boils down problems to the two conditions above at the cell level. Heal the cells, which are always breaking down and building up new ones, and you’re going to be health(ier).

o Nutriate, respirate, move the body, and rest!

– Looking at disease in this light LIBERATES us from the tyranny of the corporate medical model, of hospitals

– The beauty of the health model that we talk about on The Bright Side is that it doesn’t require authorities or authority figures. We must get rid of this idea that somebody else can take care of our bodies, especially when it comes to cardiovascular health, because it is SO simple to do it ourselves.

o The message of The Bright Side is that:

§ You don’t need drugs

§ You don’t need doctors

§ You don’t need insurance companies

§ You don’t need somebody other than yourself to tell you about your body

– While symptomology is not pleasant, we want to reframe our difficulties as pointers to the road to recovery, which will almost always direct us to problems in:

o The Adrenal-Stress System

o The Blood Sugar-Insulin System

o The Digestive System – most important of all!

The body is always both breaking down and building up, to keep tissue going and fresh. It’s a question of being in net breakdown or net buildup. We want to be in net buildup. Whatever the disease is, whether stones in the salivary glands, diabetes, or whatever… the body is in net breakdown mode.

– The Bright Side is about cleaning up the degenerative environment and reversing it from catabolism (breakdown – “cata-” comes from the Greek work for downard) to anabolism (buildup – “ana-” comes from the Greek work for upward). No drugs can turn a catabolic system into an anabolic system!

On the Bright Side, we’re always seeking to simplify things and the best way to simplify bodily functions is to break them down into two broad categories/components

1. Net breakdown mode

2. Net buildup mode

– Most of the diseases that humans suffer are the net result of an ongoing breakdown mode.

– Whether it is a knee problem, diabetes, hypothyroidism, etc., you want to think of it as breakdown.

o The “Why” behind problems is almost always the following:

§ Digestive

§ Blood Sugar

§ Adrenal-Thyroid

§ Combination thereof

o When you adjust the underlying cause, the body will take of the symptoms on its own.

– The way to treat breakdown mode issues (i.e., disease and aging) is to get into the net buildup mode

o Give yourself the things that will stimulate “buildup”, aka anabolism

§ Protein

§ EFA’s

§ Minerals

o Eliminate the things that cause net breakdown

§ Sugar

§ Bodyfat

§ Extra calories

o It’s not that complicated!

– The Bright Side philosophy is NOT to work at the emergency level with quick fixes; it is about working on the environment of the body

o It’s about giving people a targeted nutritional formula, medicine, or some sort of allopathic remedy

o You can’t clear up your arteries by taking Vitamin-this or vitamin-that; you need to address breakdown at the global, overview level

– So what is the bright side philosophy about?

o Focus on the body and the environment, NOT on the symptoms. It’s not about the problem, it’s about the WHY the problem is there. We seek to correct the reason behind the WHY. Any kind of health issue has a “why” behind it.

o Healing means “to be made whole”. This can only be done when the body’s biochemistry is working the way it should be. The body then becomes a coherent whole. Like a symphony – when they are practicing in the beginning, it sounds like crap, but when the show goes on, it sounds like a symphony

o The human body has a miraculous healing system. It’s always breaking down and repairing, and this breakdown-buildup process is occurring simultaneously all the time.

§ Cells break down and cells build up

§ At any given moment, the body is either in NET breakdown or NET buildup mode. If you add all the breakdown processes and all the buildup processes, you get a net result. Think of it as a balance sheet with debits and credits. When you are in net breakdown mode, you are in the red, and so on.

o Rarely will someone have just one system. When the breakdown process happens, it happens in chain fashion throughout the body. As the breakdown process proceeds, it can manifest is all kinds of ways from gum disease to cancer. Trying to treat these symptoms can be maddening, leading exasperated sufferers to throw their hands up in defeat and say, “Cut that organ out, I can’t deal with it anymore!”

– Example: Letter to Pharmacist Ben (PB) by girl who is 23, no period, has fluid retention in lower extremities.

o If she goes to a doctor, she will probably get a prescription diuretic and some kind of female hormone to force her body to do something it would rather not do – have a period.

o The Bright Side Philosophy would approach it as follows:

§ What’s going on with the digestive system first? Is this woman eating inflammatory foods? Is she eating pro-estrogen food that will shut down the digestive system?

· Let’s hit the brain’s “satisfaction system” to correct any deficiencies in salt, protein, essential fatty acids (EFA’s) and remove poor dietary choices

§ What’s going on with the blood sugar system? Use diet and supplements

§ Adrenal-Thyroid: Nutrition, diet, and exercise

· Deep breathing techniques

· Exercise to address the pooling of water in the lymphatic system

o Do these things, and the periods will take care of themselves. No drugs, no doctors, no surgery, no radiation.

The Bright Side’s Square of Health – A Simple, Commonsense Recipe for Health

– The motto of The Bright Side for good health is: “Nutriate, Respirate, Move, and Rest”

o Nutriate – good, quality food and less calories

o Respirate – powerful breathing and deep oxygenation

§ Very important for detoxification – these can go a long way towards making you feel better, improving your health, and maximizing longevity

o Move – Get some intense movement of an exercise type; fatigue the muscles

§ Put some stress on your bones, muscles, and brain

o Rest – Relax and take it easy!

– We are looking for a clean, pristine biological system so that disease can make your body a home

o When cells have everything they need to grow strong and healthy, degenerative conditions of any type start to recede and then disappear

o Give your cells what they need to produce the proteins they need to produce!

– Simple, Commonsense Recipe for Health:

o Eat correctly – including hydration

o Supplementing correctly – this is a must

o Breath correctly

o Moving correctly

o That’s it!

– Must-Have Supplements:

o A good probiotic supplement:

§ Flora FX by Youngevity

§ Bio Lumin Nightly Essence by Youngevity (PB’s favorite)

o Multivitamin

§ Ultimate Daily by Youngevity

o Essential Fatty Acids

§ Ultimate EFA’s by Youngevity

o Beyond Tangy Tangerine – not a must, but excellent to compensate for lack of nutrients in the middle of the day, especially if you are eating low-quality foods that rob you of your vitamins and minerals

o Digestive Enzymes – again, not a must, but great for digestive health and for inflammatory conditions

– On The Bright Side, weight loss is NOT the goal, it’s the BYPRODUCT of the goal

o You’re going to lose weight when you start a nutritional supplement program and healthy program

o You don’t have to be restricted: there are many great foods you can eat and lose weight at the same time

– If we losing weight by using The Bright Side philosophy:

o Eating more protein

o Eating lots of EFA’s

o Getting all essential vitamins and electrolytes

o Correcting digestive issues

o Correcting blood sugar issues

o Working on adrenal health

o Learning how to breathe correctly

o Drinking lots of water…

– By giving our body what it needs to thrive and staying away from what’s unhealthy, not only will we be healthier, but we will definitely 100% lose weight without even trying

o PB gets letters about success stories constantly talking about losing 10 – 60 lbs. all the time!

Once you get yourself healthier, you’re going to lose weight. Weight loss is not the goal.

Ben Fuchs Talkers Interview

An “Alternative” Approach to Health as well as Radio Syndication

| By Jeff McKay
Special Features Correspondent

NEW YORK — While conservative political talk radio still dominates the AM/FM commercial spoken word air waves, pharmacist Ben Fuchs proves syndication, and talk radio in general, can come in many forms. In the case of Fuchs, the host of the nationally syndicated Genesis Communications Network (GCN) radio program “The Bright Side,” he has become a thorn in the side of the pharmaceutical industry by becoming an advocate for better nutrition and a natural healing approach, because, as he says, “I look at the human body as a healing and regenerating system.”

Ben Fuchs Talkers InterviewHowever, Fuchs, or the “alternative pharmacy pharmacist” as he is known, has taken his beliefs a step further, taking to the radio to not only spread his belief, but to help others.

“I was always fascinated with radio, even as a kid. I studied broadcast journalism at Syracuse University, and after I graduated I couldn’t get a job [in radio]. I was able to get a few jobs outside of radio, but not what I really wanted,” says Fuchs. “Then I decided to go to pharmacy school, and as a pharmacist I began to realize what I was doing was selling regulated poisons to people, and people just didn’t know the truths about what was being prescribed for their bodies and the damage those toxins can do.”

Fuchs’ big break came when he appeared on a talk show on KSCO-AM in Santa Cruz, California, the highly-regarded independent news-talk station with a strong local following owned and operated by Michael Zwerling. The show Fuchs appeared on garnered a strong and positive response, which led Zwerling to offer Fuchs a show of his own. His show quickly built a loyal following.

For Fuchs, “The Bright Side” program allows him to reach people who believe in what he believes when it comes to alternative approaches to healing. What he found was that there are more people who share his belief, and many more who are interested in learning about the alternatives. In other words, interest in alternative approaches to health is huge in America and a potent platform for radio.

“The health process requires good thoughts and effective strategies involving food and lifestyle. We are told the only alternative is to medicate,” says Fuchs.

His show is described by syndicator  GCN as a “fast-paced, entertaining and educational radio program that focuses on the latest, cutting edge ideas in health and fitness … featuring nutritional and wellness information about exercise, diet and supplementation, prescription drugs, psychological transformational tools as well as the timeless wisdom of all the great religions and philosophies.”

When it comes to the healing process, Fuchs says that should not be about jamming our bodies with pharmaceutical drugs, simply because it’s what we are told to do by a multi-billion dollar industry. Instead, it should be about letting the body do what it does best – heal itself.

“For thousands of years we medicated our bodies with foods and nutrients. My position as a pharmacist is we should be exploiting the best of the non-pharmacy. Only as a last resort should we use pharmaceutical solutions,” says Fuchs.

When you discuss the pharmaceutical industry with Fuchs, you find that for the alternative pharmacy pharmacist it’s not about a hatred of an industry. Instead, it’s a positive view of the human body and why in many cases, we should just let nature take its course.

“There are alternatives to the pharmaceutical paradigm,” says Fuchs, who believes the body’s own healing process is being overlooked. “The healing process is built into our bodies. The human body has always been a natural healing system. There are over 100,000 people who die each year from prescription drugs, drugs that do not reverse degenerative diseases. This proves drugs alone isn’t the answer.”

“The Bright Side” currently has about a dozen affiliates according to Fuchs, including Zwerling’s KOMY-AM in Santa Cruz, California; KCXL-AM in Kansas City and WPBQ-AM in Jackson, Mississippi. The show airs weekdays for one hour live from 10:00 am to 11:00 am ET. What Fuchs also has going for him is the interest, support, praise and belief of such industry movers as impresario Zwerling, GCN CEO Ted Anderson, and TALKERS publisher Michael Harrison. There seems to be a growing buzz surrounding him.

Fuchs, whose show is also streamed on the internet, gives listeners the chance to learn about alternative forms of medicines and natural healing, but also to discuss what concerns his listeners and together how to solve health problems in a language easy to understand, minus what you could call “medical terms.”

“We are told everywhere, in commercials, on billboards, from doctors and hospitals that the only alternative is to medicate. We have given clinical terms to everything because there is a profit to be made from it. Listeners to the show are looking for alternatives, and together we find them,” says Fuchs.

Fuchs believes that radio is extremely important not just for him to do the show, but to give listeners a chance to learn about alternatives to pharmaceuticals, answer their questions, and let people know if they feel the same way they are not alone.

“People who call in have great questions about nutrition and their bodies, and their questions help educate others,” says Fuchs. “I love doing ‘The Bright Side’ because it allows me to reach people I might not have been able to talk to and together we improve the health of our bodies.”

Can a program like “The Bright Side” make it in today’s competitive world of talk radio and shriveling advertising budgets? “Absolutely!” says TALKERS publisher Michael Harrison, adding, “Ben Fuchs is someone to watch in this business. He’s delivers on several levels: First, there is a significant interest in alternative health care in America. It crosses demographic and lifestyle boundaries and is indeed growing leaps and bounds. Second, there is a gigantic and thriving industry catering to this interest offering a wide variety of products to the public – products that sell well within a talk radio show context. And third, this guy has an abundance of broadcasting talent. He supplements his knowledge and passion for the subject at hand with a warm and communicative personality that touches many bases of the day-to-day human experience. Like the great ‘specialty show’ hosts in talk radio – Kim Komando, Clark Howard, Dr. Joy Browne, and of course the phenomenal Dave Ramsey – Ben Fuchs’ specialty is being able to bring much MORE than his specialty to the table.”

(EDITORS NOTE: Ben Fuchs is a registered pharmacist, nutritionist and cosmetic chemist who holds a BA in Broadcast Journalism from Syracuse University and BS in Pharmacy from the University of Colorado. He has practiced as a Registered Pharmacist and Consulting Nutritionist for over 15 years, formulating nutritional products and consulting with doctors and patients since graduating from the University of Colorado School of Pharmacy in 1986. Fuchs has also lectured nationwide on the importance of the strategic use of cosmetics and nutritional supplementation for healthy skin and bodies.)

The Bright Side Mission Philosophy

Bright Side Mission Pt. 2 - Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

Bright Side Mission Pt. 2 – Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

Americans – One of the Least Healthy Populations on the Planet

– A Statistical Snapshot at the modern state of America’s Health

o Some 11 million Americans suffer for a poorly functioning thyroid

o Acne affects 40 – 50 million Americans

o Over 90% of Americans aren’t even getting the RDA of Vitamin E

o 30% of Americans suffer from non-alcoholic liver disease while some 10 – 15% more suffer from the alcoholic fatty liver disease

o One million or so people die each year from heart disease; 65,000,000 Americans suffer from some type of heart disease like high blood pressure or kidney disease

o there are 80 million Americans with some type of autoimmune issues

o Diabetic symptoms afflict 100+ million (1 out of 3) Americans!

o Over $300 billion per year is spent on cardiovascular issues and heart disease. 64 million Americans suffer from heart disease

– Americans are taking more medicines than ever before

o In 2011, you have around ½ (48% within the last month) of all Americans taking prescription drugs, with many of those taking multiple prescriptions (2 or more drugs for 1/3 Americans; 5 or more drugs is 1/10 Americans)

§ There are billions of prescriptions dispensed every year, with an average of 12 per American!

o You’d think with all these prescriptions, we’d all be living long, healthy lives… but we are sicker than ever before.

o Most of our complaints of today suspiciously sound like the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs

§ Many people who are dying of heart attacks are on multiple prescription drugs.

– The average American starts the falling apart process at the age of 28 – 30. By the time we reach 65 or 70, the falling-apart process is in full force. This is why:

o 1 out of every 3 Americans is overweight

o 1 out of every 2 Americans is diabetic or pre-diabetic

o 1 out of every 2 Americans has non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

– We are in the midst of a health crisis that is truly of biblical proportions and it is so unnecessary

– We are being subjected to poisons and chemicals (10,000’s of them) that have been invented since the industrial revolution. Is it a surprise that Americans are the most chronically-diseased population in the history of humanity.

o Should we then subject ourselves to yet more poisoning just because some “authority” with a white coat on tells us that we can lower our cholesterol if we take this or that poison, or we can force our pancreas to make more insulin with this or that drug

– And in the end, what do we get for the billions, or even trillions of dollars that we’re spending on drug treatments, surgeries, and diagnostics? A DISASTROUS situation where 80 million Americans are dealing with some kind of cardiovascular disease.

o There’s a heart death every minute

– When it comes to heart disease and all degenerative disease, our medical model is complete failure because it puts the emphasis in the wrong place.

o The problem isn’t the heart or the circulatory system – it is where the problem appears, but not where the problem begins

o In order to correct heart disease truly and genuinely, we have to address the cause, which in the vast majority of cases is going to be found in the digestive system

– This idea that we can use drugs, which are nothing but glorified poisons, to treat the manifestations of bodily breakdown is part of a hypnotically-induced trance that we are subjected to from the day we are born, and it continues for the rest of our lives

– The prescription drugging of Americans is one of the most egregious cons that we’ve ever been subjected to

– We are being subjected to poisons and chemicals (10,000’s of them) that have been invented since the industrial revolution. Is it a surprise that Americans are the most chronically-diseased population in the history of humanity.

o Should we then subject ourselves to yet more poisoning just because some “authority” with a white coat on tells us that we can lower our cholesterol if we take this or that poison, or we can force our pancreas to make more insulin with this or that drug

o For all the tests, scans, drugs, etc., we are sicker than ever and the medical paradigm has presided over this disaster. It DOES NOT WORK! What will it take to prove this to people?

Hey America – Sickness and Disease is not Inevitable!

– Address the cause of disease, clear out the clogs in the circulatory system, make sure you breathe correctly, make sure you’re drinking water, make sure you’re not eating the crappy foods, and we can get our God-given allotment of 120 years back. WE DON’T HAVE TO FALL APART!

o PB has simply seen too many people benefit from getting on BTT/Supplement program, changing their diet around, and making proper lifestyle choices.

o Making the proper lifestyle, diet, and supplement choices is the single-most important health decision a person will ever make.

o If you are taking one or several prescription drugs on an ongoing basis and you feel something is not right, you should know that this is a recent phenomenon based on a corrupt medical model. Prescription drugs are by no means your only option!

– By understanding our bodies and how all these pieces interact with each other, we can go a long way towards REVERSING (not CURING) these degenerative process

o Allow the body to build faster than it’s breaking down. Drive the chemistry in the direction of buildup – the body wants to do it.

Modern Medicine – It’s Not Really About Your Health

– Doctors generally treat allopathically, which is a treatment of disease. In fact, modern medicine is an ongoing war against disease, bacteria, viruses.

o Allo = Against, Pathy = Pathology à Opposing Pathology or disease

o The idea of using drugs to oppose pathology: Drugs or radiation are the choice weapons in the war on pathology

o “You have this disease; you have this symptom.” – This notion of “you have” then gives license to doctors to prescribe a medication or remedy

o It’s the MEDICAL MODEL that is the problem: The focus on billable markers, tests, and drugs that is at fault here. This is the wrong way to look at the body

o Do you really believe that drug companies, hospitals, and healthcare services in general really have an interest in making sure everyone is healthy? The $300 billion figure goes towards paying a lot of mortgages for a lot of drug company reps and CEO’s.

o Do not think that a pharma company is interested in your health! The medical model does NOT have your best interests in mind. If you don’t want to be milked like a cash cow, you want to stay FAR away from the corporate healthcare system in this country.

– Why do people get sick when it gets cold? There’s no biological reason for people to get sick with a change of temperature.

o As soon as it gets cold, people get sick. What’s up with that?

o People go to the doctors for their sickness and, in a knee-jerk fashion, the doctor prescribes the usual stuff (like amoxicillin, cough syrup, etc.)

o Doctors prescribe the exact same stuff for everyone; some cost-cutting health facilities use formularies that show which drugs are supplied at the discounted rate.

§ Everyone who has problem X will be treated with drug Y in a very cookie-cutter fashion – whatever the buyers of drugs at the facilities have a deal on

o Every pathology has a designated drug and protocol for how much and when. These prescriptions are so automatic; the doctor doesn’t even have to know anything.

– The medical model wants us to think that it’s a mystery how the body works, just like the legal and political system want us confused so that we can’t empower ourselves.

o Those who would assume power over us want us confused.

– We’ve become so “smart” that we’re dumb. We are led to believe that it’s complicated, when it’s not.

o Think about the legal system – you know that it’s so complex that you must find a lawyer. Why? Because lawyers write the law. The political system is the same way – filled with laws, intentionally complicating things so we give up.

o When it comes to your health, you don’t have to buy into a crooked medical paradigm.

– 15 – 20% (soon to be 30%) of our GDP is spent on health care, yet we’re so sick

o We have the most expensive healthcare and the highest rates of degenerative disease

o Highest rates of obesity

o Highest rates of diabetes, cancer

o What does this tell you?

– The commoditization of medicine in our capitalist culture has led to this state of affairs, so in true follow-the-money fashion, the health of the population has become nothing more than an opportunity for some fat cat CEO and their poodles in the medical profession to line their pockets at our and our family’s expensed.

o Americans are the most medicalized people on the planet. We have the highest healthcare costs, highest drug costs, insurance costs, and soon we will have the full weight of the federal gov’t guaranteeing that everyone has to participates. And what do we have to show for ourselves? More degeneration than ever before, and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

– The Bright Side Philosophy is a response to the failures of allopathic medicine, of “fighting disease” by cutting yourself open, irradiating your body, or taking pharma.

o Health Statistics prove this: We have all kinds of drugs to treat a whole slew of ailments

o It’s not just drugs; nutrients can also be used in an allopathic fashion. You can sometimes get good results using such nutrition, so it’s not for nothing. But this is not what the Bright Side Philosophy is about.

– If we attempt to address our health challenges at the symptom level, it is equivalent to Hercules trying to destroy the hydra, who grew two heads for every one cut off

o When doctors remove a gall bladder for chronic gall stones, patients get skin and digestive problems

o When doctors prescribe blood pressure medicine, patients have fatigue and sexual difficulties

o Treatments for depression increase the risk for suicide and difficulty in concentration

– Most modern medical treatments that suppress symptoms do not address the causes of the problem in the first place, which is almost always rooted in the triangle of digestion, adrenal, and blood-sugar systems.

– If nutrition sounds kind of wacky to you and you want to go out and use, say, a statin drug, then go ahead. But if you’re suspicious or tired of being drugged, listen to The Bright Side, because you will get a lot of real options for real heart health that don’t involve interfacing with the medical community at all.

– The pharmacological model works with molecules; The Bright Side philosophy, which is really a commonsense model works with lifestyle and nutrition choices:

o Foods

o Water

o Supplementation

o Oxygenation

o Exercise

– The medical model cannot help but fail; look no further than the poor state of health Americans live with. The commonsense, Bright Side philosophy cannot help but work, and work quickly – almost instantly when it’s done correctly.

o It’s in the body’s nature to heal, so we ride the healing wave of the body, which can begin immediately.

– A cell that’s not doing what it’s supposed to do because it’s deformed, suffocating, malnourished, or swimming in its own excrement and poisons is a cell that is not going to be able to function correctly. This is how all disease should be viewed.

– So, chronic disease does not need chronic medication. In fact, chronic disease is helpless in the face of chronic medication; more often than not, chronic medication accelerates degeneration which then requires MORE meds. Don’t add to your body’s net breakdown mode.

– Eliminate the middle man. Reverse the net breakdown to net buildup. Ask yourself where the focal point of all breakdown is – the cell. We can WORK OURSELVES.

o Take the power back and address the cellular breakdown! When we eat well, the cell eats well.

o When we are not breathing correctly, our cells are not breathing correctly, etc.

o Everything we’re doing at the body level is happening at a cellular level too

o There is not a drug or doctor anywhere that can take care of us as we are ourselves can

The Bright Side Philosophy and Mission

Mission – Teach the People How The Human Body and Nutrients Work

– There is a real, justified cynicism about supplementation, diet plans, alternatives to drugs, etc., and the medical model plays off on this skepticism

– Pharmacist Ben (PB) believes that this cynicism exists because nobody is explaining exactly how the body works and how nutrients work

o PB wants The Bright Side to be about how things work:

§ “How does this eye or heart vitamin work?”

§ “What is an essential fatty acid?”

§ “What is a liquid mineral and why are liquid minerals important?”

§ “Why does taurine work?”

§ “How does lecithin improve my digestion, and how will improving my digestion be helpful for my heart?”

– PB’s real mission on The Bright Side and his presentations is to communicate the message of HOW THE BODY WORKS – how the chemistry, neurology, biology, and everything in the body works together with nutrition, oxygen, with mental, spiritual, and emotional components as well – so you can gain appreciate and awe at the sheer perfection and amazingness of the human body.

o We can cure ourselves without doctors, health insurance companies, and bureaucrat administrators who tell us what we can and should take or what kind of procedures we have to do.

o The Bright Side is a coherent, compelling, eye-opening message to anyone who has ever had their personal dignity robbed from them by some pencil-pushing bureaucrat (or whomever) who is deciding what kind of treatment you need or deserve.

o The Bright Side is committed to helping listeners understand and harness the power of nutritional supplementation. It is Pharmacist Ben’s passion and mission in life

– Having enough health information will necessitate some technical details and explanation; PB’s challenge is to make the information palatable and understandable

– The Bright Side is intended to clear up the confusion described above. If you feel overwhelmed with a visit to the vitamin store, and want the straight scoop, then the Bright Side is for you. Continue reading The Bright Side Mission Pt. 3

Part 1: The Bright Side Mission

Posted by postmaster in Perspective

The Bright Side Mission

These days, There is a real, justified cynicism about supplementation, diet plans, alternatives to drugs, etc., and the medical model plays off on this skepticism. Pharmacist Ben believes that this cynicism exists because nobody is explaining exactly how the body works and how nutrients work.

The Bright Side Mission

The Bright Side mission is to communicate the message of how the body works – how the chemistry, neurology, biology, and all systems in the body work together with nutrition, with oxygen, and with mental, spiritual, and emotional components as well – so that regular people can gain appreciation and awe at the sheer perfection and magnificence of the human body. The Bright Side carries out its mission via The Bright Side Radio show and website, Pharmacist Ben’s presentations, and pamphlets such as this one.

Bright Side Mission - Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

Bright Side Mission – Syndicated Radio Show with Ben Fuchs

Therefore, The Bright Side’s mission is also one of empowerment and liberation: teaching the people how the body works so that we may take the power to control our own health back into our own hands and liberate ourselves from slavery to modern medicine, pharmaceutical drugs, and processed corporate swill that passes for food in the Standard American Diet (SAD).

As such, Americans are the most diseased and medicalized people in human history, despite modern medical and technological advances. 70 – 80% of the health issues in the U.S. are degenerative diseases – essentially, diseases of lifestyle; doctors, drugs, and surgery cannot do anything about this state of affairs. The reality, however, is that Americans are not sick, they are starving for nutrients. We do not need to be fixed, we need to be fed. Without nutrients, disease is the only eventuality possible, and that is what we are seeing more and more in the United States (and the Western world) today.

But there is great news! You can help yourself feel better and reverse the degenerative process if you just give the body what it needs. The body needs proper nutrition to feed the body, respiration to oxygenate the body, movement to generate electrical energy and deliver nutrients throughout the body, and long periods of rest for bodily growth and repair to take place.

Once you understand better how the body works and what it needs, you can effectively provide yourself with the necessary nutrients so that you don’t have to go looking for salvation from herbs, drugs, and exotic elements that are not part of the body’s essential line up of nutrition.

And so, as the name “The Bright Side” itself states, there is always a “bright side” when it comes to our health and any diseases we or our loved ones might be suffering from, which is that we can be our own doctors and healthcare providers! The Bright Side is committed to the idea that the body’s healing processes and optimal health can begin immediately if we arm ourselves with the proper knowledge and begin to change the food and lifestyle choices we make, allowing us to be the immediate beneficiaries of the body’s divine, inborn healing system.

Modern Medicine – It’s About Money, Not Health

The United States is spending between 15 – 20% (soon to be 30%) of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on healthcare, yet we’re so sick! We have the most expensive healthcare and the highest rates of degenerative disease in the world, as well as the highest rates of obesity, diabetes, and cancer. As well, we have the highest healthcare costs, highest drug costs, insurance costs, and soon we will have the full weight of the federal government guaranteeing that everyone’s participation.

And what do we have to show for ourselves? More degeneration than ever before, and we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Doctors generally treat allopathically, which is a treatment of disease. In fact, modern medicine is an ongoing war against disease, bacteria, viruses. Let’s look at the roots of the word “allopathy”, which means “against (allo-) pathology (-pathy)”, or in other words, “opposing pathology/disease”. Toxic pharmaceuticals, radiation, and invasive surgery are the weapons of choice in modern medicine’s “war on pathology”. With the notion of “you have ___________ disease and ___________ symptom(s)”, doctors are given the license to prescribe medications or harmful remedies.

It’s the medical model that is the root problem: The focus on billable markers, tests, ancillary hospital services, and drugs that is at fault here. This is the wrong way to look at the body! The commoditization of medicine in our capitalist culture has led to this state of affairs, so in true follow-the-money fashion, the health of the population has become nothing more than an opportunity for some well-paid CEO’s and their poodles in the medical profession to line their pockets at our and our family’s expense.

People go to the doctors for their sickness and, in a knee-jerk fashion, the doctor prescribes the usual stuff (like amoxicillin, cough syrup, etc.). Doctors prescribe the exact same stuff for everyone; some cost-cutting health facilities use formularies that show which drugs are supplied at the discounted rate. Everyone who has problem X will be treated with drug Y in a very cookie-cutter fashion – whatever the buyers of drugs at the facilities have a deal on. Every pathology has a designated drug and protocol for how much and when. These days, dispensing prescriptions is so automatic that the doctor doesn’t even have to know anything.

So, do you really believe that drug companies, hospitals, and healthcare services in general really have an interest in making sure everyone is healthy? The $300 billion figure goes towards paying a lot of mortgages for a lot of drug company reps and CEO’s. Do not think that a pharmaceutical company is interested in your health! The medical model does NOT have your best interests in mind. If you don’t want to be milked like a cash cow, you want to stay FAR away from the corporate healthcare system in this country.

What’s more, the medical model wants us to think that the body’s workings are a mystery and keep us confused, just like the legal and political system want us confused – so that we can’t empower ourselves. Just think for a second about the legal system or the tax code – they are so complex that you must find a lawyer or an accountant. Why? Because lawyers write the law. The political system is the same way – filled with laws, intentionally complicating things so we give up.

The American medical system is much the same – we are led to believe that health is complicated, when it’s not. The main problem is that most modern medical treatments that suppress symptoms do not address the causes of the problem in the first place, which can almost always be traced to simple root causes (more on that in the next section). And so, we’ve become so smart with today’s medical model that we’re dumb! We spend our time, energy, and money trying to “cure” the ever-growing list of symptoms of disease. But attempting to address health challenges at the symptom level is equivalent to Hercules trying to destroy the hydra, who grew two heads for every one cut off. For example:

– When doctors remove a gall bladder for chronic gall stones, patients get skin and digestive problems

– When doctors prescribe blood pressure medicine, patients have fatigue and sexual difficulties

– Treatments for depression increase the risk for suicide and difficulty in concentration

But again, the bright side is that, when it comes to your health, you don’t have to buy into a crooked medical paradigm. If nutrition sounds kind of wacky to you and you want to go out and use, say, a statin drug, then go ahead. But if you’re suspicious or tired of being drugged, turn to The Bright Side, because you will get a lot of real options for real health and wellness that don’t involve interfacing with the medical community at all.

High Fructose Corn Syrup Addiction Like Cocaine

Results presented at the 2013 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting shows that high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) can cause behavioural reactions similar to those produced by drugs of abuse such as cocaine.

High Fructose Corn Syrup
by APRIL McCARTHY

These results, presented by addiction expert Francesco Leri, Associate Professor of Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science at the University of Guelph, suggest food addiction could explain, at least partly, the current global obesity epidemic partly caused by these ingredients.

The same brain circuits are involved when people crave high fructose corn syrup as when drug addicts think about drugs. There is significant activity in all areas of the brain, especially in the hippocampus when consuming potent sweeteners. That region is related to learning, memory and is also related to a lot of things such as sensory and motor impulse and emotional behavior.

The stimulators also sent messages of satiety to brain circuits in the orbitofrontal cortex and striatum, which have been linked to craving and desire in cocaine addicts.

High-fructose corn syrup, which is a mixture a potent concentrated cocktail of the simple sugars fructose and glucose, came into use in the 1970s and by 2010 the average American was consuming about 80 pounds of it per year. Overall, dietary intake of fructose has increased by an estimated 50 percent in the last thirty years.

Insomnia And Disrupted Sleep During Menopause

Are you kidding me! Of course sleep problems are connected to heart disease in menopausal women. Problems sleeping are classic signs of adrenal production of stress (sympathetic) hormones. and nothing puts more “stress on the heart than stress hormones! That’s why one of the most important things you can do to protect yourself from heart disease or to mitigate the effects if you already have it, is to focus on adrenal health.

Insomnia And Disrupted Sleep During Menopause
When the inevitable hits and a women’s ovarian hormone output slows down, a women’s adrenal glands, which also produce reproductive hormones (except at this point in a woman’s life they’re more accurately health and repair hormones) are expected to pick up the slack. They’re working hard! To give your adrenals some love, use Celtic Sea Salt or Redmond Salt or Himalayan salt. The adrenal gland LOVES minerals! Use lots of Vitamin C too and don’t forget the Zinc and Magnesium. Breath deeply and fully 5 minutes a day paying extra attention to the exhale, it’s activated by the relaxation nervous systems (parasympathetic) and mitigates some of the affects of the stress nervous system. Meditation and Yoga are great too. Us more protein to avoid low blood sugar and eat less food. And as always make sure you’re avoiding problem foods and using probiotics and easting lots of fermented foods.


Insomnia and other sleep disturbances are common among perimenopausal and postmenopausal women and may increase their risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Evidence that a combination of altered sleep duration and insomnia among women ages 50-79 doubled their risk of both CHD and CVD over a period of more than 10 years is presented in an article in Journal of Women’s Health, a peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available on the Journal of Women’s Health website.

In “Sleep Duration, Insomnia, and Coronary Heart Disease among Postmenopausal Women in the Women’s Health Initiative,” Megan Sands-Lincoln, PhD, MPH and a team of researchers from leading medical institutions across the U.S. gathered self-reported data on sleep duration and insomnia in 86,329 women 50-79 years of age. Shorter (10 hours) sleep duration and insomnia were associated with higher incidence of CHD and CVD over 10.3 years, and when considered together, the interaction risk of insomnia and sleep duration was significant.

“This is the first study to investigate interactions of sleep duration with insomnia in relation to increased risk of CHD and CVD in postmenopausal women,” says Susan G. Kornstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Women’s Health, Executive Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Institute for Women’s Health, Richmond, VA, and President of the Academy of Women’s Health.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important for the Heart

One of the most important heart supplements you can ever use is Omega-3 fatty acids. These important nutrients have gotten some bad press recently and now research comes out from The University of California, corroborating what most nutritionists have known for decades. Omega-3 fatty acids are indeed important for the heart.There is no system in the body more quickly effected by inflammation than the cardiovascular and these powerful ESSENTIAL fatty acids have well-known anti inflammatory benefits. If you have heart problems uses 2000 mg a a couple of times a day MINIMUM , but you can take a lot more. Make sure you take them with Vitamin E (400 i.u.) and it’s probably a good idea to use an omega -6 containing oil as a supplement AND as throughout the day as dressing for vegetables.

Procedures like angioplasty, stenting and bypass surgery may save lives, but they also cause excessive inflammation and scarring, which ultimately can lead to permanent disability and even death. A new research report appearing in The FASEB Journal, shows that naturally derived compounds from polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s) may reduce the inflammation associated with these procedures to help arteries more fully and completely heal.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important for the Heart

“Our study suggests that biologically active, naturally occurring compounds derived from omega-3 PUFAs reduce inflammation and improve the healing of blood vessels after injury,” said Michael S. Conte, M.D., a researcher involved in the work from Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and the Heart and Vascular Center at the University of California, in San Francisco, CA. “They suggest a new opportunity to improve the long-term results of cardiovascular procedures such as bypass surgery and angioplasty by the therapeutic application of this class of agents or their dietary precursors.”

Breast Cancer and Double Mastectomy

Pharmacist Ben Fuchs and Alex discuss breast cancer, and Angelina Jolie’s recent double mastectomy.

The brilliant German biochemist Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that deficiencies in oxygen make cells cancerous. (See: What Really Causes Cancer)

In this video interview, Alex makes the observation “If you have brain cancer, why not have your brain removed?”

Predisposed to ovarian cancer? Take out your ovaries! Predisposed to breast cancer? Let’s hack them off. When you have surgery to remove your breasts, your body goes through the same trauma as if a wild animal were eating you. This whole thing with Angelina Jolie is like a poster child for the utter insanity of the modern medical model.

The BRCA gene mutations occur secondary to maternal malnutrition, when the baby is in the womb. A double mastectomy is one of the most severe and traumatic surgical procedures a human being can undergo, all in response to a mutation in her genetics that is secondary to lifestyle issues.

Epigenetics is all about nutritional and lifestyle factors that are transcendent to genetics. It’s the environment that the genes are in! Watch the video for more information and details.

More Evidence Berries Have Health-Promoting Properties

Adding more color to your diet in the form of berries is encouraged by many nutrition experts. The protective effect of berries against inflammation has been documented in many studies. Diets supplemented with blueberries and strawberries have also been shown to improve behavior and cognitive functions in stressed young rats.

BerriesTo evaluate the protective effects of berries on brain function, specifically the ability of the brain to clear toxic accumulation, researchers from the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University and University of Maryland Baltimore County recently fed rats a berry diet for 2 months and then looked at their brains after irradiation, a model for accelerated aging. All of the rats were fed berries 2 months prior to radiation and then divided into two groups- one was evaluated after 36 hours of radiation and the other after 30 days.

“After 30 days on the same berry diet, the rats experienced significant protection against radiation compared to control,” said investigator Shibu Poulose, PhD. “We saw significant benefits to diets with both of the berries, and speculate it is due to the phytonutrients present.”
