Lyme disease is a complicated infection that is caused by bacteria that’s transmitted from a tick or insect bite. The majority of cases of Lyme are due to a bite from a type of deer tick known as the black-legged tick, which can carry and pass on bacteria known as borrelia burgdorferi. According to the Michigan Lyme Disease Association, more recently it’s also been found that other insects can also spread Lyme disease or cause similar infections — including other types of ticks, mosquitoes, and possibly spiders or fleas.
Overall, up to 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease every year, according to new research from the Centers of Disease Control (CDC), and many seek Lyme disease treatment. Lyme disease cases are largely concentrated in the Northeast and upper Midwest, with 14 states accounting for over 96 percent of cases reported to CDC. Continue reading

The hepatitis B vaccine is routinely administered to newborns, often just a few short hours after birth. It’s a highly controversial practice; for many parents, the idea of vaccinating a delicate, newborn baby has been a hard pill to swallow. Now, new research confirms there is a link between the hepatitis B vaccine and brain damage.
While vaccine propagandists continue to claim that vaccines are “100 percent safe,” the science clearly shows otherwise. There is a mountain of evidence which demonstrates vaccines can, and do, cause harm to their recipients — and it is growing taller by the day. Continue reading

I completely understand that for many this issue is not debatable as they believe that vaccines are one of the greatest gifts to public health in the history of civilization. If you believe that, then let me encourage you to open your mind and explore other views held by many well respected physicians, scientists, clinicians and pro-vaccine safety educators. You might want to review the article Read This Before Vaccinating for Anything, to help you start your exploration process.
When it comes to vaccines, there are three primary questions that need to be considered. Continue reading
Recovering from Fibromyalgia: Am I Crazy?
by Jacob Teitelbaum, MD
After dealing with an insane and skeptical medical system, those of you with CFS or fibromyalgia, or even just day-to-day fatigue, often begin to wonder if you’re crazy.Well rest assured that you’re not! … at least no more so than than everyone else 🙂
Let’s take a look at this problem in a little more depth. The medical community has a bad habit: When doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong with their patients, they too often resort to branding them “nuts.” Imagine calling an electrician because your lights don’t work. The electrician checks all your wiring, can’t find the problem, and says, “You’re crazy. There’s nothing wrong with your lights.” You flip the switches and they still don’t work, but the electrician just says it again, “I’ve looked. There’s no problem here,” and walks out the door. This is exactly what many people with CFS/FMS and day-to-day fatigue experience. Continue reading
Don’t Be Fooled. Fake Honey Is Everywhere! Here Is How To Detect It (And Brands To Avoid)
After my post about fake olive oil (over 70% of all store-bought extra virgin olive oils in the US are fake), I’ve finally decided to delve into the world of fake honey.
Have you ever taken a walk down the grocery store isle that shelves honey? Well, to tell you the truth, not all honey is created the same. In fact, most of the honey you buy at your local supermarket is not much healthier than refined white sugar (especially cheap honey), and a lot of it is manufactured in China, where regulations on health and safety are lax, and in many cases, non-existent.

Wednesday, January 09, 2019 by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) A bombshell report that reveals another shocking vaccine cover-up has been broadcast by Sharyl Attkisson’s “Full Measure” show. Sharyl Attkisson is one of the few remaining real journalists in America, and she has been attacked, smeared, censored and de-platformed for daring to ask real questions about vaccines, government spying and other “disallowed” topics.

Not the Healthy Oil You’ve Been Led to Believe
Canola oil has practically taken over as the food processing industry’s oil of choice. Whether it’s mayonnaise, chips, or salad dressings, canola oil is usually the first, second or third ingredient on the list. Unfortunately, the health dangers of canola oil are far beyond what we’ve been led to believe. So if there aren’t any actual health reasons to use it, why would it be so widely used throughout the food industry? As with most reasons certain ingredients are used over others – the price. Canola oil is extremely inexpensive to grow and harvest. It is also very easy to grow, due to its genetic modifications and the fact that insects won’t go near it.
Canola oil was first created in the early 1970s as a natural oil. But in 1995, Monsanto created a genetically modified version of canola oil. By 2009, over 90 percent of the Canadian canola oil crop was genetically engineered.
What is Canola Oil?
On top of all this, it’s amazingly easy to make. I’ve been making it for decades! Unsalted butter in pan. Melt. Bring to a simmer. You will hear a crackling bubbling. When the crackling slows to almost none, and the foam that has formed on the top turns slightly golden brown around the edges. Take it off the heat. I pour it through a strainer (you don’t have to – the foam isn’t harmful) into a ceramic jar with a lid. It’s sits next to my stovetop. Easy peasy! – Evonne
Top 10 Reasons to Cleanse with Ghee
An Ayurvedic cleanse would not be an Ayurvedic cleanse if it did not call for the ingestion of melted ghee. New research may prove this ancient Vedic cleansing technique to be even more credible than we originally thought! As it turns out, the microbes in the gut actually produce their own ghee constituents, making ghee a familiar and welcome substance in the body. Continue reading
A pilot study illuminates that high-dose vitamin D significantly improves lesions and depigmentation in psoriasis and vitiligo, respectively. Because Vitamin D deficiency is implicated in the pathophysiology of autoimmune responses, these findings may be applicable to other autoimmune disorders.
Vitamin D: A Hormone Critical to Health
Vitamin D insufficiency is a pandemic affecting nearly half of people worldwide, while one billion people are classified as vitamin D deficient . Hypovitaminosis D, or vitamin D deficiency, represents an independent predictor of total mortality in the general population, and conversely, vitamin D supplementation has been illustrated to be protective against mortality .

Irritable bowel syndrome, commonly known as IBS, affects millions of people around the world. This condition, which often manifests itself as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea, is becoming increasingly common due to the prevalence of unhealthy diet choices. Fortunately, most cases of IBS don’t require medical intervention and can be easily remedied through changes in lifestyle. Continue reading
