Activated Charcoal for Detox, Food Poisoning & Hangovers

Personally, I keep a bottle of activated charcoal capsules in my medicine cabinet at home, and I had a ten-pound jar of it at my pharmacy for years. I’ve used it for food poisoning, to reduce unpleasant digestive symptoms like gas and bloating and for dealing with the stomach flu. It has also been recommended for accelerating recovery from a hangover after a night of too much celebration, although the recent literature suggests …

Breast Milk

“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.

Check Thyroid Health with the Basal Thermometer Test

Thyroid Health

If it turns out you’re suffering from hypothyroidism, and nearly 10 percent of Americans are, it’s unlikely that using iodine supplements will make much of a difference. I’m not saying that iodine is not an important mineral; iodine is important, particularly for glandular health and for the production of thyroid hormone.

Iron: The Fundamental Element

Iron, the Fundamental Element

Iron, though birthed in the interior stars, is perhaps the most fundamental element of life on earth. In fact, it would be difficult to find a multi-cellular organism on our little blue planet that can survive without the third most abundant of her elements (after silicon and oxygen).

In the human body, nutritional iron is an essential component of hundreds of enzymes and proteins.

The Health of Hair Depends on Internal Nutrients. Hair is dead!

Hair is dead! By the time the skin appendage has left its hidden home and birthplace in the follicle, and becomes a visible strand of substance, it is nothing more than a hard shell. Because this shell is largely composed only of dead cells filled with protein, the same stuff that makes up human fingernails as well a horse hoofs and rhino horns, trying to enhance hair’s appearance and texture with topical products ..

Why I Love MLM

Why I Love MLM

I’ve been doing “multi-level marketing” (MLM) my whole adult life. While some folks consider MLM to be a scam, based on my experience, that’s just plain unfortunate. In many ways MLM is the ultimate egalitarian business. It’s person to person, extremely accountable and a great way to connect with our fellow human beings. I remember when MLM first came on my radar back when it first dawned on me that I was going to need to figure my money thing out.

Your Skin and it's Inherent Healing and Renewing Capacity

Everyone wants great skin. We are bombarded daily by advertisements and marketing proclamations that claim to deliver it.

Eczema Has Been a Recognized Skin Disease for Millennia

Eczema Has Been a Recognized Skin Disease for Millennia

One of the most interesting aspects of the cells that make up the surface of the skin is their multi-functionality. While mostly known for their protective barrier properties, the living beings colloquially known as “skin cells” (and more technically as “keratinocytes” in honor of their most prolific extrusion, the fingernail like protein called keratin) are much more than a cellular shield. “Skin cells” are biochemical dynamos, each one producing ..

Old Man’s Disease is More Prevalent Than Anyone Suspects

Old Man’s Disease

I love my dad. He gave us kids everything he could: love, money, attention, and most of all he was always there for us when the chips were down. When I was young, I thought my dad knew everything. Unfortunately, as I got older I realized my dad only thought he knew everything. I used to call this condition of all-knowingness “Old Man’s Disease” (OMD) which I defined as the mental condition that causes us to believe that we know everything.

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 Want To Vaccinate My Child? Just Sign This Form

I 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.
