Prostate Cancer. What are the options?

One of the most over-treated cancers out there is prostate cancer. After a radical prostatectomy, up to 90% of men experience erectile dysfunction and 20% have incontinence. With radiation treatments, erectile dysfunction happens slowly and occurs in 90% of men along with 64% incontinence rates. Cryosurgery brings 72% erectile dysfunction and 73% incontinence rates. What are the options? Read on my brother:

Want some horseradish?

Horseradish is a superfood! This root from the mustard family packs a goodly amount of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants along with natural Vitamin C to fight viral infections and boost immunity. Horseradish contains many volatile compounds such as various isothiocyanates and sinigrin which tout some pretty awesome detoxification functions. Some of the phyto-chemical compounds in horseradish stimulate digestive enzymes that facilitate digestion and horseradish also has anti-inflammatory, diuretic (increases urine output), and nerve soothing effects. Top this off with the fact that horseradish helps remove free-radicals from the body to protect you from cancers. But wait, there’s more! Horseradish is a magnificent blood tonic that’s loaded with sodium, potassium, manganese, iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. The biggest drawback here is that store-bought versions are all made with GMO soybean oil. But I get around that by grinding my own horseradish in a blender; pouring in grapeseed oil and some white vinegar to bring it to the consistency and flavor I like. Feeling nauseous and sick? Do what I do; eat a healthy helping of horseradish straight up! Works for me every time.

It'll either kill or cure ya! ;-)

Now do you want some horseradish?

Will the HPV vaccine help or harm your child?

So, which causes more cancer? The virus or the vaccine? We won’t know for many more years. But more families are wising up to skip the HPV vaccine for their preadolescent and teenage boys and girls. Bottom line: this vaccine does far more damage than good. Did you know that HPV vaccines work only against some strains of virus that usually clear themselves anyhow? My money is on skipping this vaccine.

Make an informed choice!

The 30-year breastfeeding benefits

Breastfeeding absolutely benefits the child’s health, brain development and intelligence. But what about those crazy moms who keep on breastfeeding until the infant becomes a toddler? Well, a newly finished 30-year study on prolonged breastfeeding (1 year as compared to breastfeeding for a much shorter time) found that adults who were breastfed for up to one year not only incrementally increased their long-term intelligence but also impacted the individual with improved educational attainment and earning ability. Infants that were breastfed up to one year of age gained full four IQ points; obtained an average of about a year more advanced schooling; and grossed about one third more of the average income level by the age of 30. Remember that this was not the usual breastfed vs bottle-fed study but rather a study of thousands of babies that were breastfed vs breastfed longer. One of the biggest factors in these adult benefits and achievements is the presence of natural long-chain saturated fatty acids found in breastmilk. The longer the infant nursed, the more they got. These essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in breastmilk are essential for brain development. Man has yet to successfully counterfeit the quality of EFAs found in breastmilk with anything put into a bottle formula.

Breastfed babies have a decreased risk of becoming overweight or obese and even have less cancer as adults!

The great vaccine mercury debate

Is ethylmercury used in vaccines safe? Is it safer than methylmercury in fish as we are told by the CDC? Methylmercury is the organic form of mercury found in fish and other aquatic species. Ethylmercury is the supposed “safe” form of mercury used in vaccines, diapers, Kotex and other goods.

Mercury-free vaccines?

The synergy of trivia: A dose of mercury small enough to kill only 1 out of 100 rats will kill ALL 100 rats when combined with a small dose of aluminum. Did you know that some vaccines have both a small dose of mercury and a small dose of aluminum? Without aluminum, the immune system doesn’t respond aggressively to the vaccine antigen. Without mercury (thimerosal), funky things grow in multidose vials. According to Dr Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, mercury is still present in the “mercury-free” child vaccines, just in smaller amounts.

Meet blueberry’s first cousin – bilberry

Bilberry leaf has long been used for treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol, vascular disorders, kidney stones, typhoid fever, eye disorders and many other ills. Loaded with anthocyanosides – which are potent antioxidants – bilberry reduces inflammation, strengthens both blood vessels and capillary walls, naturally thins the blood, stimulates the release of vasodilators, improves red blood cells, stabilizes collagen tissues such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage and can even prevent diabetic retinopathy. Bilberry is also used for a curative and a preventative treatment for ulcers as well as treatment for chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, spider veins, blood clots in the legs and even hemorrhoids. In one study, bilberry stopped the growth of both leukemia and colon cancer cells by blocking the effects of enzymes and chemicals that promote tumor growth. Did you know that WWII pilots took bilberry because it dramatically improved their night vision? Won’t cost you much to try some and see for yourself what bilberry can do for you.

PPIs wreck the kidneys

The short-term relief from Big Pharma’s acid reflux Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) packs some long-term side-effects and risks. Among the litany of harm done by PPIs, a recent study shows that PPIs inflict H-E double hockey sticks on the kidneys – including more than doubling the risk of kidney failure in seniors. So, the Big Pharma spin doctors came out with this fairy-tale fact that PPIs have an overall risk level of less than 1%. What they didn’t say is that the 1% includes ALL people – like including everyone who doesn’t take these drugs in the first place. But if you look closely at this “new math” reporting ploy, people who don’t take PPIs suffer kidney failure at 0.54% – but people who take PPIs actually suffer kidney failure at the rate of 1.349%. Uh, that’s actually some 250% more kidney failure in real world numbers and not a real risk level of less than 1%. Big Pharma must take us for idiots. Try taking some lemon juice next time reflux visits you. If the reflux goes away – you need more stomach acid, not less. If lemons don’t help, drink some fresh cabbage juice. Either way, don’t buy into the Big Pharma spiel – find the cause and fix it.

Find the cause and fix it!

Are GMO foods a good idea?

GMOs do not naturally exist in nature. They cause cancer in rats. They cause allergies. they kill our honey bees and they create super-weeds. How are they even a good idea? Better question: Why would you knowingly buy them?

Nutritionist for sale or trade for one small soda:

So, if your junk food sales are lagging, invent something that appears nutritious to help recover the lagging dollars. That’s what Coca-Cola did. They teamed up with charlatan fitness and nutrition “experts” to get them to suggest that a soft drink is actually a healthy treat and a wise choice. Several of these paid “experts” even wrote online pieces for American Heart Month, promoting the mini-can of Coke or small soda as a nutritious snack idea. Coca-Cola also recently focused PR strategy with health experts in February to promote the theme of “Heart Health & Black History Month” complete with a radio segment and multiple online pieces. Business-as-usual for Big Food companies because this is how Big Money corporations work from the shadows to hype their products in a positive light – by using third party “authorities”. So, go ahead and pay more per ounce for your mini can of Coca-Cola if you really think it is a healthy idea – and I’ve got some oceanfront property in AZ that I can sell you next…

Eyeliner mishaps

Hey peoples, did you know that pencil eyeliner ingredients often include petroleum-based waxes and oils, silicones and gums to stick the eyeliner to the eyelids? These chemicals migrate to the eye itself via blinking, sweating and the natural secretion of body oils and tears – and, the older the makeup, the more bacteria is found in it. In the latest study of people applying eyeliner inside the lash line, scientists found that within five minutes, up to 30% more unnatural particles moved into the tear film of the eye versus applying it outside of the lash line. It grows even worse if the subject wears contact lenses because this forms a residual build-up on the contact lens itself; causing vision disruption as the lens becomes cloudier (accompanied also with a greater residue of unfriendly bacteria). People using eyeliner, and especially people who apply it to the inner eyelid, run a much higher risk of contaminating the eye and causing eye dominance problems, hyperopia, mycosis, bacterial infections and sometimes permanent vision trouble or blindness. Oh, and lets not even begin to discuss the lead and other metals used to make eyeliner colors more vivid and long-lasting…

The best cold medicine is prevention

Airborne trivia: Did you know that people coming down with a cold can spread the virus for two days before the symptoms even start and for four days afterwards? Adults usually catch two or three colds each year but school-age children often have twelve or more colds in a year. The best time to fight a cold is before it catches. Good diet and extra GMO-free vitamin C helps a lot.

Milk thistle wonders!

Milk thistle has silibinin in it. Silibinin made the news at the 2015 American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting where a recent study shows that taking the purified form of milk thistle significantly slowed the growth of colorectal cancer. It turns out that silibinin found in milk thistle is a non-toxic, chemopreventive agent. Milk thistle is also great for treating liver and gallbladder problems. Add to that heart benefits, lower cholesterol levels, better blood glucose management, soothing for digestion and many other health boosts and milk thistle is a must-have for just about anyone’s health supplement cabinet. Pregnant or nursing? Milk thistle cleans toxins out of mommy’s body for a healthier baby and milk thistle promotes production of milk while decreasing pesticide residues in breastmilk. Just WOW!

How is that herd immunity thing working out?

The modern vaccine herd immunity theory is actually only a hypothesis and not a theory. Originally coined in the 30’s by a researcher studying measles patterns (long before the measles vaccine), the assumption was that epidemics of measles only occurred when natural immunity levels in the ‘herd’ fell below 68%. Hedrich’s herd immunity theory was all about natural disease processes and had nothing to do with vaccinations. However, some decades later, vaccinologists appropriated the phrase and imposed a completely conjured number that increased their herd immunity numbers to 95% of vaccinated kiddos. Because of this and so much other industry propaganda and misinformation concerning childhood diseases and immunizations, the unvaccinated child is often treated like a pariah in society and the parents categorized as criminals. Here’s a thinker for you: If vaccines actually work, why should you be afraid of my unvaccinated kid in the first place? Oh, and that 95% number hasn’t worked out either.

Child cancer, autism, adhd, allergies, asthma, arrthritis, SIDS, obesity and other illnesses are on the rise because of our medicalized thinking.

Organic ready corn

Want some organic c0rn? Good luck with that one… Corn relies on the wind to cross-pollinate. The problem is that organic corn can pollinate off of GMO corn crops many miles away. (Technically, if you plant “organic corn”, you get to call it “organic” even if it is contaminated by GMO crops growing downwind – and that’s what you get nowadays.) Europe tests all organic-grown corn before shipping and when transgenic contamination is found, it is refused. Well, how about you? Don’t you want to know if your “organic corn” is GMO contaminated? My guess is that it is. But, here’s where the plot twists: Researchers have developed a way to preserve the integrity of organic corn by isolating a genetic trait from popcorn that won’t allow the mutant ninja GMO corn to infiltrate other nearby corn crops. One developer, Frank Kutka, calls his corn breeding brain-child “Organic Ready corn”, a salvo against Monsanto products. Now we wait for the marketing to catch up to the demand.

If in doubt - pass on it.

If in doubt – pass on it.
