Flu Shot Advice

Do NOT follow any advice from John Tesh when it comes to the flu shot, period.

He continually pushes the flu shot as a prevention. He is not a doctor. He sites bad statistics. He has never done research on the subject.

Don't believe me? Research the subject, the flu shot is a scam.

Guardasil is a Public Health Experiment

The cervical cancer vaccine, Guardasil, is called a “large-scale public health experiment.” A total of 8,864 vaccine related injury reports have been filed, including 38 of Guillain-Barre syndrome and 18 deaths, 11 occurring within one week of receiving the vaccine. Gynecologist Christiane Northrup, M.D., appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show, told viewers that she wouldn’t advocate vaccinating her daughters.

Avoid Migraines

Nearly 85% of all migraines can be eliminated by avoiding foods that are allergenic. The most common allergenic foods are (percentage of people that react):
wheat at 78%
oranges at 65%
eggs at 45%
tea and coffee at 40%
chocolate at 37%
beef at 35%
corn at 33%

Aspartame can trigger any kind of headache.

Try avoiding one of these foods for a few months and see if you headaches disappear. You may be surprised. If you find the culprit, avoid it.

Cold or Flu?

How do you tell the difference between cold symptoms and flu symptoms?
To be 100% correct, a culture has to be taken.
To be nearly as certain, try the following questions:

1. Did the symtoms come about all of sudden (F) or did they come on over a longer period of time (C)?
2. Do you feel exhausted (F) or can you push yourself through your symptoms (C)?
3. Do you have a fever of 102 degrees or higher (F), or no fever at all (C)?
4. Do you have a headache (F) or no headache (C)?
5. Do your muscles ache (F) or not (C)?
6. Do you feel gastro-intestinal problems (F) or no problems (C)?

If you answered more "F" than "C", you probably have the flu. More "C" = cold.

What to do to prevent both colds and flus. Don't get the flu vaccine. It is worthless.

- wash your hands throughout the day.
- don't touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- avoid contact with people who are sick, and avoid contacting the things that they have touched.
- keep your distance from others so that you don't catch it or so that you don't spread it.
- stay home from school or work.
- use a tissue when covering your mouth to sneeze or cough, or wash your hands after covering your mouth after coughing or sneezing.

Keep your immune system in tip-top shape.

The Body's Eyes

The body has wonderful ways of telling you that something wrong is going on inside. There are many outward expressions of inner problems that the body can show an observer. We all know that pain is a signal that something is wrong. This is not the type of signal I am alluding to. I am talking about physical signs that occur as manifestations on inner disease or imbalances.

Here are some examples:

Beau's Lines - these are transverse depression in the nails that occur after a previous systemic disease.

Bilot's Spots - On the sclera of the eye, small white patches appear which can suggest a vitamin A deficiency.

Bouchard's Nodes - These are hard, painless nodules on the middle joints of the fingers that are associated with osteoarthritis. They occur because of bone hypertrophy.

Cullen's Sign - This is an ecchymosis (small blue or purple patch on the skin) around the umbilicus (belly button) that can be associated with interperitoneal bleeding, a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, or hemorrhagic pancreatitis.

Gibbus - This is the angular convexity of the spine (usually on the upper back) due to vertebral collapse. This can be associated with osteoporosis or metastasis.

Herberden's Nodes - These are hard, painless nodules on the joint nearest the fingernails that are associated with osteoarthritis.

Joffroy's Reflex - This is the inability to wrinkle the forehead when a person is asked to bow the head and look up. This can indicate hyperthyroidism.

My favorite is a sign that occurs on the earlobe. An angled vertical crease in the ear lobe can indicate advanced athroschlerosis.

For a longer list of these signs, just add a comment.

The Whole World is Scared of China-Made Products

The whole world is scared of China made "black hearted goods"
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China? Let me tell you. The first 3 digits of barcode 690,691, and 692 is made in CHINA. Do not ever buy it for your own health.

471 is Made in Taiwan

This is a human right to know, but the government and related department never educate the public, therefore we have to rescue ourselves.

With more and more milk products from China and Taiwan having problem. We really got to check where the things are produced. Here is a way to differentiate Taiwan made products and China made products : by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.

If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made
If the 1st 3 digits are 471 – Taiwan made

BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia)

According to an article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in February 2007 a study shows that "Men who have a high intake of vegetables, particularly those rich in beta-carotene, had a reduced risk for benign prostatic hyerplasia (BPH--also known as enlargement of the prostate)."

"Nutrients with antioxidant properties or that influence cell growth and differentiation might reduce the risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia"...."With increasing vitamin C consumption the risk of developing benign prostatic hyperplasia decreased. These findings are consistent with earlier studies that found diets high in beta-carotene, lutein and vitamin C from foods may reduce the risk of benign hyperplasia of the prostate".

Prevention is key.

How Sweet?

Yes, it's true, we do need sugar in our body. However, the type of sugar does matter. The only sugar we need is in the form of complex carbohydrates like legumes, veggies, and whole grains. Our bodies will do the work of converting it to glucose as needed. The complex carbs that we eat are also loaded with other healthy ingredients and nutrients, unlike simple sugars and processed foods (empty calories).

Did you know that eating just two teaspoons of sugar will throw our blood chemistry off for 8 hours?

Did you know that too much sugar actually creates stress? Habitually eating sugar increases cortisol levels by 300% - 400% putting your body in a state of chronic stress.

Did you know that sugar consumption alters your body's pH levels? Cancer only survives in an acid pH balance. Your body's natural pH balance is 7.4, anything lower and you are looking at harm to your body.

Did you know that sugar supresses your immune system? It inhibits white blood cells for up to 5 hours, it reduces the production of antibodies, it interferes with vitamin C, etc., etc. Get the point?

Sugar also causes protein damage through glycosylation. This will lead to DNA damage.

If you can't afford to be sick, invest in being well. Prevent, don't eat sugary foods.

take care

Save Yourself some Benjamins, Go Natural.

"He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of the most medicines." by Benjamin Franklin.

The Milk Fight

Cow's milk is for cows. Human milk is for humans. Plain and simple.
The milk lobby has too much power to press its misleading messages in an effort to get you to consume, consume, consume.

The only thing milk is good for, is osteoporosis. Let me rephrase that. Milk is excellent for CAUSING osteoporosis. Contrary to what the milk industry wants you to believe, all the nations that consume cows milk have the highest rates of osteoporosis. You don't have to believe me, look it up. Most dieticians are falsely informed and push the use of milk out of one sided educational training. A little (independent) research on the subject should clear these misconceptions.

What about my calcium? There are many, many, many other sources, far better than cows milk.

Don't harm yourself or your children. Look it up. Learn. Live healthy.

PS: Ever heard of leukemia puss? Dairy farmers have.

Autism and ADHD

Certain foods can affect autism and ADHD.

Behavioral and education therapies continue to serve as important means to helping afflicted individuals. However, nutritional changes are the most effective. By removing certain foods and adding beneficial foods, autism and ADHD can be greatly affected. Many families are finding that by removing dairy, gluten, and soy, that this packs the greatest therapeutic punch.

Try these recommendations

Daily Supplements:
Antioxidants - Vitamin C (200-2,000 mg)and vitamin E (100-400 IU).
Calcium - (400 - 1,000 mg)
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) - DHA (1,000 mg), EPA (1,000 mg), and GLA (80-240 mg)
Magnesium - (100-500 mg)
Probiotics
Zinc - (20-60 mg)

Other Recommendations
Avoid artificial colors, preservatives and additives - preservatives found in hot dogs, bacon, and lunch meats (nitrates), sorbic acid (found in cheese, frosting, and dried fruits), dyes (especially yellow #5), MSG, and aspartame.
Eliminate trans fatty acids.
Eat organic foods - this will lessen the toxic load on the system.

What Water Should I Drink?

Water was once quite pure. Not anymore.

Water in its purest form is found in the vapor that arises from the earth's surface, which leaves behind any contaminants that have collected. This process of evaportation, condensation, and precipitation is called the Hydrologic Cycle. This is similar to the distillation process.

Distillation is one of the earliest forms of water treatment. The Greeks used distillation on their ships to make sea water drinkable. In Julius Caesar's time, they depended on solar distillation to provide their soldiers with drinkable water. The Chinese used earthenware distillers during the Ming dynasty.

So, the answer to which water you should drink, is distilled.

Do NOT get Cervical Cancer Vaccine!

Guillain Barre syndrome reported after human papillomavirus vaccine

As of May 31, there have been 13 cases of Guillain Barre syndrome (GBS) in association with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that six of the patients had received Gardasil alone, and six had also received meningococcal vaccine (Menactra). Since the end of May, an additional two cases have been reported. Gardasil is now involved in 15–20 percent of all VAERS reports that are filed.

Serious reactions attributed to HPV vaccine According to a report from Judicial Watch, at least three deaths and 1,600 adverse reactions have been connected to Merck’s new human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil. Causes of death were myocarditis, coronary artery thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. Two of the deaths were of girls aged 12 and 19 years. The interval from vaccination to death ranged from several hours to about 2 weeks.

Merck lobbyists work for HPV vaccine mandates; Texas governor bypasses legislature, as was predicted by parental rights advocates, the “recommendation” of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) was immediately followed by legislative proposals to force 11-year-old girls to receive the vaccine as a condition of school attendance. Merck, which could make $1 billion per year in sales from mandatory Gardasil, is not only funding lobbyists but funneling money through Women in Government, an advocacy group made up of female legislators. A top official from Merck’s vaccine division sits on the Women in Government business council. The company refused to disclose the amount of money it has donated to that group or has spent on lobbying.

********HPV VACCINE RESEARCHER BLASTS MANDATE******A lead researcher who has been working on the HPV vaccine development for more than 20 years has now gone public, saying that the mandate is wrong, and could result in higher rates of cervical cancer. Further, she accuses the drug companies of “overselling” the vaccine as a cancer preventative. Even though this researcher has a bias toward the vaccine and is indirectly funded by Merck, she warns against its mandate. Read the Story

Be Holistic

"The Doctor of the Future Will Give No Medicine, Yet Will Interest His Patients in the Care of the Human Frame, in Diet, and the Cause and Prevention of Disease." by Thomas Edison.

Fresh Air?

Would you eat a dangerous chemical? No? Then why would you breathe one in?

Almost 90% of air fresheners contain a chemical called phthalate. The phthalate put into air fresheners helps it to stay suspended in the air. Phthalates are also used in lotions, nail polish, and plastic toys, to name a few.

Phthalates are endocrine disruptors. This is bad! Disrupting the endocrine system will cause all sorts of problems in men and women. For example, phthalates have been linked to abnormal development of the male reproductive system.

Instead of using air fresheners, the source of the odor should be removed. Take out the trash, open a window, or use clean natural air fresheners, like baking soda or other natural cleaning agents.

Brain Fog

Brain fog is not really a diagnosis. Brain fog can be descibed in many different ways. You may have unclear thinking or trouble concentrating, or you may appear confused or detached.

Since your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy, it is important to put the correct types of food into your body. Most importantly, people should avoid sugar and high sugar content foods, as well as highly processed foods like white breads, sodas, and other sweets. These types of foods metabolize too quickly and lead to spiking of blood sugar levels, which in turn leads to crashes and brain fog.

Most people in this situation need high quality proteins with their meals. Proteins are absorbed more slowly than sugar and help to prevent spiking of blood sugar levels. Foods like nuts, hard-boiled eggs, or any other natural source of protein will do. You can add carrots, celery, sliced bell peppers, and cottage cheese as snacks so that you are not tempted to visit the vending machine.

Another cause of brain fog is food allergies. As a personal story, I had experienced brain fog for about a year. My diet was very clean, except for one thing, gluten. I found that when I removed gluten containing food from my diet, the brain fog went away.

Don't forget candida! Candida overgrowth stems from eating too many sugary foods, eating highly processed food, and using antibiotics. Candida can mimic many forms of disease symptoms. Brain fog is a very common symptom of candida overgrowth. Use an anticandida diet and supplements to conquer this problem.

Although the cause may be difficult to pin down, it is important to keep looking. The body is very good at hinting that something is wrong, and brain fog is a hint.
