Breast cancer chemo survivors often have fatigue, pain and other debilitating symptoms that persist for months and sometimes years after treatment has ended. This is because chemotherapy leaves behind epigenetic damage to the survivor’s blood and other cells. This damage is associated with inflammation months after the treatment and brings with it pain and fatigue – just like the achy, tired feeling that comes with the inflammation during a bout of the flu. This post-treatment achy, tired feeling is also caused by inflammation from the chemo damage but unlike the flu inflammation, this stuff doesn’t just go away. The journal Brain, Behavior and Immunity calls this the “cost of cancer treatment”.
Surviving is not always thriving…
A recent study in the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy found medication errors were common on admission to mental health services. How common were they you ask? How about errors in 56.2% of patients… If these errors aren’t caught before the patient gets the drugs, researchers say that over three-quarters of these patients are consequently exposed to moderate harm. The errors they found mostly involved anti-psychotics, heart, diabetes, and dementia medications. You’d have to be genuinely crazy to submit your health to this kind of statistics. Question ALL medications from here to the pharmacy and back. Also, remember that chemical drugs do nothing to treat the causes and actually make things worse – both in the short-term and in the long-run. If the doctor that put you on a medication can’t get you back off that med, you have the wrong doctor.
Crazy is as crazy does and the system is nuttier than the victims are!
Distracted walking logs more ER injuries per mile than distracted driving. Texting and walking brings sometimes not-so-comical bumping into walls, falling down stairs, tripping over clutter and even stepping into traffic. Did you know that this issue is so common in London that special bumpers were placed on light posts to prevent walking texters from slamming into them? Walking is actually highly complex activity involving over two hundred muscles at once. Talking on the phone can be distracting enough but texting while walking takes both your mind and your eyes off of the path in front of you. Thousands of texting pedestrians are treated in emergency rooms across the nation each year – that is, counting only the ones who aren’t too embarrassed to admit to it.
Usually this might end up funny…
Kidney stones are symptoms of imbalances in the body. They are not a disease that can be resolved by a medical procedure no more than snipping the wire to the oil warning light on your car solve the low oil problem. If we understand what kidney stones are, why kidney stones form and what dissolves them we can now treat the underlying causes to “cure” the body of kidneys stones.
What a pain in the kidney!
Apple cider vinegar rocks! The main active ingredient in ACV is acetic acid which effectively kills both bacterial and fungal pathogens and even leprosy. ACV even wipes out the highly drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis. ACV is a wonderful, inexpensive and non-toxic disinfectant against many drug-resistant pathogens. The only thing that works almost as well is chlorine bleach, but you can’t drink that toxic and corrosive chemical. Vinegar has been used for thousands of years as a common disinfectant and even as medicine. Drinking a tablespoon or two of ACV daily will help alkalize the body and strengthen the immune system to fight off common colds, flu, some cancers and even helps grow friendly bacteria in the gut. Gone swimming at a public pool? Take a bath with 2 cups of ACV afterwards to neutralize the effects of chlorine and disinfect the skin.
And it is sooo good for you!

Xanathan gum is made by fermenting food sources with the bacteria Xanthomonas campestris – the same bacteria that makes black spots on broccoli and cauliflower. Xanthan gum is listed in the top 30 most popular food ingredients. You find it in salad dressings, sauces, ice cream, gluten free foods and many other processed food products. BUT! Xanthan gum is most often made by fermenting GMO corn sugar with the aforementioned bacteria. I recommend that you put all xanthan gum on your watch list – at least until you confirm its source because xanathan gum can be derived from a variety of sources such as GMO corn, GMO soy and even wheat. It’s getting to where there are no safe processed foods out there. Back to the basics peeps!
Many food additives do cause harm to your body little by little…
If you think your doctor’s hands might be germy if they didn’t scrub up before your exam, you should check the stethoscope! Studies show that healthcare workers’ hands are the main source of bacterial transmission in hospitals. A new Mayo Clinic Proceedings shows that stethoscopes can harbor several thousands of bacteria types including MRSA. And this comes in direct contact with the skin of patient after patient in the course of a single day. Don’t be embarrassed to ask your doctor if they have washed their stethoscope before it touches you. If the doctor objects, fire them because the stethoscope’s diaphragm is more contaminated than all regions of the physician’s hand except the fingertips. Furthermore, the tube of the stethoscope is often more heavily contaminated than the back of the physician’s hand.
Sometimes logic just doesn’t rule…
Vitamin C is essential for humans and scientists in New Zealand have proven with hard evidence that vitamin C can curb the growth of cancer cells making the connection between vitamin C as a potent cancer killer. Cancer cells do not have the required enzyme catalase that breaks down hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) into water and oxygen. Vitamin C requires catalase to break down inside the cell and vitamin C tricks cancer cells into thinking that it is sugar. Cancer cells thrive on sugar, so the cancer cells sucks up the vitamin C resulting in the destruction of the tumor from the inside out by the resulting H2O2 from the vitamin C.

A study with some 60,000 women published in the British Medical Journal, revealed that a whopping 70% of the women referred to oncologists after mammograms did not actually have breast cancer. An article published in The Lancet said that 93% of mammogram referrals to oncologists were actually false-positives. Yet another article in The Atlantic Monthly showed that up to 80% of positive mammograms were false positives. False-positives often lead to unnecessary biopsies, invasive surgical procedures and other unnecessary procedures, causing emotional trauma, financial drain, physical maiming, disfigurement and even death. How about this thought? Mammograms are also rife with false-negatives to show “no cancer” when in fact there is cancer there. A 25 year study shows that mammograms have not lowered the overall death rate from breast cancer. Yet we still do them…
Maybe they should be called mammoscams…
A recent JAMA study had participants handle receipts continuously for 2 hours without gloves. They were then tested and found to have an increase in urine levels of the endocrine-disrupting bisphenol A (BPA). Exposure to BPA is associated with adverse health outcomes, including neurodevelopmental problems in children and both thyroid and reproductive function in adults. The biggest exposure to BPA comes through the diet and the consumption of canned foods. The paper connection comes through exposure through the skin from thermal receipt paper common in supermarkets, ATM machines, gas stations, and many other settings. Thermal paper has a BPA coating for the receipt printing process that is absorbed by way of the skin with handling. Even people with no BPA urine levels had it after handling thermal receipts.
You buy organic groceries to be healthy and the chemicals on the receipt take you down…
Vaccines cause encephalitis and we are the ones giving vaccines: A study on immunization of infants in the Journal of Pediatrics was conducted to determine the incidence of cardio-respiratory events and abnormal C-Reaction Protein (CRP) elevations associated with either a single vaccine or multiple vaccines given about two months of age. CRP levels and cardio-respiratory manifestations were monitored and elevations of CRP occurred in 70 percent of infants administered single vaccines and in 85 percent of multiple vaccines. Overall, 16 percent of infants had potentially lethal vaccine-associated cardio-respiratory events with episodes of cessation of breathing and/or abnormal slowing of the pulse. Brain hemorrhages occurred in 17 percent of those receiving single vaccines and in 24 percent of multiple vaccines. CRAZY OR WHAT? This study was published in 2007…

The latest research reveals another depressing fact: suicidal thoughts, sexual dysfunction and emotional numbness resulting from anti-depressant use may be more widespread than previously thought – much more! This latest university shocker found that over half of medication takers reported suicidal feelings, 62% reported sexual difficulties and 60% were feeling emotionally numb. Professor John Read from the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society, says: “The medicalization of sadness and distress has reached bizarre levels… While the biological side-effects of antidepressants, such as weight gain and nausea, are well documented, the psychological and interpersonal effects have been largely ignored or denied.” These numbers are NOT what Big Pharma reported to get these drugs approved. We’ve been out-and-out lied to peeps.
The chemical treatment of depression simply doesn’t address or eliminate the cause!

The American Psychiatric Association has figured out how to drop the autism numbers by one-third! Easy-peasy… Just simply change the diagnosis guidelines for autism spectrum disorder. This still doesn’t address the pandemic of developmental disorders taking over the brains of our little ones – but it does bring a sigh of relief to the medical mucky-mucks. Of course, this will also leave many thousands of developmentally delayed children every year without the means to qualify for social services, medical benefits and educational support. The new guidelines eliminate the autism subgroups of Asperger’s and pervasive development disorder to establish a more limited range of criteria for autism diagnosis. None of this pandering is dealing with the core issue – what is causing all these developmental disorders? Could it be us oh Lord?
Diagnosing autism isn’t stopping autism from happening.
The American Pain Society reports that more than half of people over the age of 60 are now battling chronic pain. Prescription painkiller drug poisonings have increased by 300% in the last three decades. Want to fight back naturally? Read this article:
