Back in the ’80s when I was birthing my first child, it was difficult to find a doctor who would agree to the kind of experience I wanted. My idea of birthing was one in which I did all the work, and the midwife or doctor stood by in case I needed them. No drugs. No procedures. No interference. I did everything I knew to make that happen.
But just moments before I gave birth to our first child, a vigorous discussion with the OBGYN ensued while I was in transition. You might know about transition: the component of birthing where you wonder if you’ll make it because it’s the most rigorous and painful phase of childbirth. Mine turned into a debate with hospital staff, Continue reading →
Pain is first energy, second perception, and third physical manifestation. There is no other source of pain but energetic. Physical presentation is always secondary. Every single origin of pain in our bodies can be traced back to a specific emotional state which functions to warn us that there is still work to be done in areas of our lives for which we have yet to integrate lessons. Once we integrate those lessons, the pain disappears.
The body is extremely literal when it comes to pain. The experiences in your life directly manifest in your body, and when you encounter an emotional stress, your body shows you exactly what the problem is. The only thing you need to do is decode it. Continue reading →
Your thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate your metabolic rate, which impacts how much energy you have. Although it doesn’t get much attention, consuming sufficient iodine is critical for a healthy thyroid. Since fibromyalgia at its core is an energy crisis, it’s important that those with FMS are aware of symptoms that might suggest iodine deficiency. Let’s look at seven symptoms of iodine deficiency and what you can do about it. Continue reading →
The pineal gland has been known as the ‘seat of soul’ for hundreds of years. Could fluoride, a ubiquitous vector of toxicity in the modern world, actually be calcifying this gland and literally turning it to stone?
What Is The Pineal Gland?
The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain, and is sometimes called the “third eye” as it is a light sensitive, centrally-located organ with cellular features resembling the human retina.
Depression is a common health condition, with few conventional treatment options. Forced to choose between talk therapy and medication, many people choose to be treated with drugs. But what about new mothers, whose desire to breastfeed means they are not candidates for psychiatric meds? Nature is providing hope in the form of a delicate flower: saffron
Vitamin D isn’t a magic panacea, but it has been implicated as one factor in many serious health conditions.
What does vitamin D deficiency look like? In its most extreme form, prolonged and severe vitamin D deficiency during childhood, known as rickets, can delay growth and lead to visible skeletal deformities.
Today, rickets is relatively rare, but that doesn’t mean that vitamin D deficiency is—more than 40 percent of Americans are deficient. The potential health consequences of this epidemic are serious, as vitamin D deficiency is linked to osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, high blood pressure, and poor pregnancy outcomes.

Did you know that reliable public health records from around the world have been examined by several medical experts to see what impact, if any, homeopathy had during the deadly epidemics of the past?
The main findings of this research: when homeopathy was employed during these deadly events, mortality rates were routinely very low. This constancy remains regardless of the homeopathic physician, time, place or type of epidemical disease, including diseases carrying a very high mortality rate, such as cholera, smallpox, diphtheria, typhoid fever, yellow fever, influenza and pneumonia.

It appears connected to almost every known chronic disease—from heart disease to cancer, diabetes to obesity, autism to dementia, and even depression.
Other inflammatory diseases such as allergies, asthma, arthritis, and autoimmune disease are increasing at dramatic rates. As physicians we are trained to shut off inflammation with aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication such as Advil or Motrin, steroids, and increasingly more powerful immune suppressing medication with serious side effects.
But we are not trained to find and treat the underlying causes of inflammation in chronic disease. Hidden allergens, infections, environmental toxins, an inflammatory diet, and stress are the real causes of these inflammatory conditions. Continue reading →
Canadian Concordia University’s kinesiology professor Genevieve Rail was awarded a grant of $270,000 to study the effects of HPV vaccines on the public. HPV stands for human papillomavirus, which was suddenly declared the root cause of cervical cancer over the past decade.
Based on their study, Rail and study co-author Abby Lippman, a McGill University professor emeritus, published an op-ed article in Montreal’s Le Devoir newspaper questioning the safety and benefits of human papillomavirus vaccines. Their op-ed urged Quebec to halt HPV immunization until its dangers are independently investigated. Of course they were roundly attacked through the Canadian mainstream media. Continue reading →
Evonne Herkert: I’m only showing the past 12 months. You get the drift. BTW “Intravenous vitamin C is a simple, cheap, effective alternative to antibiotic use and would be effective even against ‘Super Bugs’. Liposomal encapsulated vitamin C is a practical alternative for home use.”When I take a Vitamin C pill I look for 1,000 mg in a complex, which means it will have the biflavonoids and maybe rose hips. I take several a day, or once an hour if I’m fighting something.
The growing threat of antibiotic resistance and “superbugs” is an issue I’ve been raising the red flag about for years now. And I know many of you already understand the threat is real. But it can be hard to explain to friends and colleagues who I’ve noticed often roll their eyes and assume I must be exaggerating. The antibiotic apocalypse? The end of modern medicine? “Impossible” is the reaction I often get. So for those of you, like me, who are trying to educate friends and family on the gravity of the situation, I’ve put together this “news reel” highlighting some of the biggest headlines from a variety of sources over the last 12+ months.
