Six Pharmaceutical Drugs That Immediately Destroy Your Health

Some pharmaceutical medicines can cause you immediate physiological damage, keep reading to find out which ones!

A new CDC report confirmed that half of all Americans take some pharmaceutical drug for their sicknesses. Over 150 million citizens in the U.S. are consuming medications that are tests or even unproven products. This is alarming since taking so much medication can cause many health-threatening problems in the human body.

The number of Americans who take medication increased 10% since the early 1990s. It used to be illegal for pharmaceutical companies to push legal drugs onto people, but now with the rise in drug advertisements the number of people using them has snowballed. Continue reading

Onions Absorb Flu and Pneumonia Bacteria

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu…
Many of the farmers and their families had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). Continue reading

Natural Remedies (Iodine)for Radiation Exposure (and Hypothyroidism)

See, This Wall Street Journal article points out that potassium iodide retailers are inundated with calls (and running out of their stocks rapidly) on the fear that the Japan nuclear fallout will reach the west coast. I’ve also seen the insane eBay auctions where potassium iodide pills are selling for upwards of $1000 at this point. Last week, they were $8 for a pack of 14.

Am I personally concerned about radiation reaching the United States? Maybe a little bit. But there are so many mitigating factors, and the news reports on whether these meltdowns will cause radiation to travel through the jet stream are very conflicting. Continue reading

You’re Drinking the Wrong Kind of Milk

And we’re not talking about soy or almond, either.

When my in-laws moved from India to the United States some 35 years ago, they couldn’t believe the low cost and abundance of our milk—until they developed digestive problems. They’ll now tell you the same thing I’ve heard a lot of immigrants say: American milk will make you sick.

It turns out that they could be onto something. An emerging body of research suggests that many of the 1 in 4 Americans who exhibit symptoms of lactose intolerance could instead be unable to digest A1, a protein most often found in milk from the high-producing Holstein cows favored by American and some European industrial dairies. The A1 protein is much less prevalent in milk from Jersey, Guernsey, and most Asian and African cow breeds, where, instead, the A2 protein predominates. Continue reading

Healing Bell’s Palsy

by Anthony Williams

Bell’s palsy is a relatively common condition that can show up in a myriad of ways. The face may droop in the eye, nose, or mouth area. It may droop on one side or on both sides. It can last only temporarily or for many years. At times it is very painful; other times there is no feeling at all. Sometimes Bell’s palsy affects more than just the face leaving doctors baffled. Oftentimes, when this happens, the person with the condition will be misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Unfortunately, these labels are just names that have been given to a set of symptoms that are still a mystery to medical communities.

Acid Reflux May Respond Better to Foods Than Prescribed Pills

Story at-a-glance

  • Americans spend $13 billion a year on over-the-counter and prescription proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), the most popular anti-reflux medications on the market
  • Acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a condition affecting about 20 percent of the U.S. population
  • Consuming a Mediterranean diet may be as effective as PPIs in treating acid reflux symptoms; a Mediterranean-style diet focuses on fruits, healthy fats, lean meats, nuts and vegetables
  • Often, you can restore your body’s acid balance simply by avoiding processed foods and sugar, eating real food and infusing your gut microbiome with beneficial bacteria from fermented foods or a high-quality probiotic
  • A number of natural remedies, including apple cider vinegar, baking soda, ginger and slippery elm, can be useful to address occasional reflux problems and, in conjunction with diet changes, may eliminate the need for PPIs and other medications

Large-Scale Study Proves High-Fat Diet Promotes Health and Longevity

Story at-a-glance

  • People who got 77 percent of daily calories from carbohydrates were 28 percent more likely to die during the study than those who got 46 percent of calories from carbs
  • Other recent research shows a reduced-sugar diet can lower liver fat by more than 20 percent in just nine days

Fiber Provides Food to Your Gut Microbes That They Ferment to Shape Your DNA

By Dr. Mercola

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.
