Your body is a complex ecosystem made up of more than 100 trillion bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa, collectively referred to as your microbiome, which must be properly balanced and cared for if you want to maintain good health.
These microbes are so numerous they actually outnumber the cells in your body 10 to one. With such a high prevalence of microbes in your system, it seems reasonable to suspect that they’re of some major importance.
Antibacterial soap, as they too kill off both good and bad bacteria, and contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistance.
1) Know before you go. It is immeasurably easier to get what you want if you contract for it beforehand. Prenuptial agreements, new car deals, roofing and siding estimates, and hospital care need to be negotiated in advance. When the tow truck comes, it is too late to complain about who’s driving. Same with an ambulance, or a hasty hospital admission. You have to pre-plan, and here’s how: Continue reading

SOTN Editor’s Note:
The following open letter written by a PhD Immunologist completely demolishes the current California legislative initiative to remove all vaccine exemptions. That such a draconian and cynical state statute is under consideration in the ‘Golden State’ is as shocking as it is predictable. After all, the legislation was mysteriously written and submitted shortly after the manufactured-in-Disneyland measles ‘outbreak’. Continue reading

Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat facing all of us today, and there’s plenty of blame to go around. Overall, modern science, especially veterinary medicine, has done a miserable job when it comes to predicting the outcome of its actions. According to Dr. Cyril Gay,1 the senior national program leader at the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Research Service:
“The loss of antibiotics due to antimicrobial resistance is potentially one of the most important challenges the medical and animal-health communities will face in the 21st century.”
Antibiotic resistance has also been declared “an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society” by the World Health Organization (WHO).2 Continue reading

Skin tags are small growths of skin that appear on the surface of the skin, usually on the face, neck, underarms, chest or groin. These small skin growths are benign tumors. They look like excess skin, but they are complete with nerve cells, fat cells, and a core of fibers and ducts. Skin tags can be bothersome and make one self-conscious. Luckily, they can be removed using natural home remedies. Two of these methods call for the use of oils. It is important to first dilute an oil before applying it directly to the skin, especially if you have never used that oil previously. In my experience, I haven’t had the need to dilute tea tree oil, but those with skin sensitivities might need to.
Tea tree oil
This powerful oil has been used for centuries. Australian aborigines have been using tea tree for thousands of years to treat cuts and burns. Tea tree, also known as Melaleuca, is an antiseptic and was the the favored antiseptic for most Australian doctors in the early 20th century. Tea tree can also be used to remove skin tags. First, wash the affected area with soap and water, then dry the area thoroughly. Next, dip a q-tip halfway into some tea tree oil and apply the oil onto the skin tag. If needed, tea tree oil can be diluted with olive oil. Lastly, cover the skin tag with a band-aid. Reapply one drop of tea tree oil two more times throughout the day and cover with a new band-aid. You’ll notice the skin tag shrink until it falls off on its own in a few days. If you don’t notice much improvement, try applying the oil more frequently or adding more tea tree oil to the diluted blend. Tea tree oil is ideal for removing skin tags, because it will help soothe the skin and keep it from becoming infected.
This is another great natural antiseptic. For this remedy, you’ll need some fresh garlic, a knife and some band-aids. First, start by washing the affected area with soap and water, then dry thoroughly. Next, slice a clove of garlic into “discs.” Take a disc of garlic and rub it all over the skin tag. Lastly, cut the disc down to the size of the skin tag, apply it and cover with a band-aid. Do this in the morning and leave it on all day. Then remove the band-aid and garlic before bed and wash the affected area. Repeat this process until the skin tag falls off, 4-6 days. Alternatively, the garlic can be applied before bed and removed in the morning.
Apple cider vinegar
Yet another wonderful use for apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar, like garlic and tea tree oil, is also a natural antiseptic. Use this vinegar to remove skin tags by first cleaning the affected area and running warm water over the skin tags until they become soft. Once the skin tags become soft, apply a cotton swab soaked in apple cider vinegar to the skin tag for 20 minutes. Next, rinse the apple cider vinegar off. Repeat this process 2-3 times a day until the skin tag falls off.

Dr Wakefield demands retraction from BMJ after documents prove innocence from allegations of vaccine autism data fraud.

(NaturalNews) In light of new evidence that has emerged clearing Dr Wakefield of the allegations that he fabricated study data involving MMR vaccines and symptoms of autism, Dr Wakefield is now publicly demanding a retraction from the British Medical Journal and author Brian Deer. Documents just made public reveal that another medical research team which included a senior pathologist independently documented evidence of a possible MMR vaccine – autism link 14 months before Dr Wakefield’s paper first appears in The Lancet — based on several of the same children appearing in Dr Wakefield’s study.
