Kidney stone causes and solutions

Excess calcium in the body can cause the calcium type of kidney stones and can also lead to Alzheimer’s disease and can harden arteries causing heart attacks and other pulmonary problems.1 Either a surplus of calcium and/or a deficiency in other minerals cause acid/alkaline and calcium imbalances which, in turn, causes inflammation in our tissues ultimately causing kidney stones to form.

Runaway metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is like diabetes for beginners and nearly half of adults over 60 now have it. Metabolic syndrome begins with a hefty layer of belly fat and some moobs (if you’re a guy). Then the blood sugar rises, triglycerides spike, blood pressure bounds upwards and the memory tanks. Metabolic syndrome exacts a toll on your health – in fact, having metabolic syndrome just by itself raises the risk of cardiovascular disease and death by a whopping 60%. It becomes a veritable runaway freight train! And you have to stop that freight train before you can back it up again. Begin with a no-grain diet and organic food. Add in a daily walk and some regular exercise. Get some full-body sun for vitamin D and check out your thyroid function. Just don’t rely on the thyroid blood test because that test can lie like an imitation wool rug on a fake terrazzo-linoleum floor. To know how well your thyroid is working, record your daily basal temperature for a few weeks to find out what is really going on with your metabolic function – then do something about it. Here’s how: http://realhealthtalk.com/Basal_temerature_chart_for_the_thyroid.html

Gluten sensitivity, celiac and antibiotics

Antibiotic use is now tied to gluten sensitivity, intolerance and allergies. We have helped cause Celiac Disease by prescribing antibiotics for every little unidentified sniffle, fever and rash… Is the gluten problem going to go away? Not until we smarten up a bit.

Colorful carotenoid trivia

Human breastmilk is a complete source of nutrients, antibodies, growth factors, essential fatty acids and bioactive components such as carotenoids – all in a hopefully perfect balance for the developing infant. But did you know that American women fall up to 40% shorter in some of these nutrients than levels tested in other country’s breastmilk? Must be the SAD – Standard American Diet

It takes a healthy diet to produce healthy breastmilk

Chamomile to the rescue

Relax! It’s just chamomile. Older women who drink chamomile tea have a decreased risk of death from all causes according to a recent study. And it doesn’t just work for women because chamomile is a well-documented medicinal plant that works for a variety of healing applications. Other studies show that chamomile has potential benefits in treating hyperglycemia, upset stomach, diabetic complications and even anxiety disorders. Chamomile is also known as a cholesterol-lowering, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-platelet panacea herb. Besides all this, chamomile is just a wonderfully relaxing tea. A spot of hot tea with a touch of honey can help a tireless child go to sleep at night or calm the anxious one before a big meeting. A warm chamomile enema will instantly resolve severe constipation and a warm compress with chamomile can alleviate severe acne. Then there is the essential oil of chamomile that works miracles when massaged into a fretting sciatic nerve or cramping muscle. This is one herb that you will want for your everyday wellness.

Antibiotics: A miracle drug turned sour

Give antibiotics to an infant and sentence them to allergies, autoimmune disorders, obesity and an elevated risk for infectious diseases later in life. At least that’s what the latest study out of the University of Minnesota says. Researchers reaffirmed what many other studies already say: early antibiotics just totally mess up the gut, metabolism and the immune system. This is called ‘dysbiosis’ – where profound negative and lasting changes occur in the gut microbiome. In fact, just one lousy dose of antibiotics permanently changes the gut bacteria where digestion occurs, neurochemicals are manufactured and the majority of the immune system is built and regulated. Antibiotics annihilate key gut bacteria that regulate immune system responses to keep allergens at bay – gut bacteria cells that regulate metabolism are snuffed out, slowing metabolism and increasing levels of health-wrecking short-chain fatty acids – and neurochemicals that support salubrious mental health cannot be properly assembled. Heck, the use of antibiotics is even directly tied to developmental delays. Antibiotics should always be a last resort – not a palliative token to cover up a failed diagnosis.

GMO labeling subterfuge

Anti-GMO people might laud the possibility of the passing of The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015 – but, if they really knew the dirty little secrets behind the whole package they would sing a much different tune. Did you know that this proposed law is actually being backed and driven by Monsanto, Koch Industries and Dupont (among others)? In fact, their banner-child organization is named “The Coalition for Safe Affordable Food”. This little ole coalition has since written a letter to Congress saying that GMO labels would be misleading because GMOs are safe and the net-effect of labeling would mean “higher food prices for hard working American families.” One huge problem is that this bill actually contains a “prohibition against mandatory labeling” while allowing only for voluntary USDA certification and labeling. The absolute biggest problem is that this bill would override any and all state or local laws that require GMO labeling. Bottom line, it will specifically block any real GMO labeling efforts from ever happening – unless, perchance, the FDA determines that some particular GMO product is ever found to be unsafe – in that case, label that one only. Solution: If in GMO doubt – just leave the food out! Just don’t even buy it.

Toxoplasmosis and personality changes

Severe personality changes don’t happen without a reason. One of the best-hidden causes of this is toxoplasma gondii contracted from cats and other sources. These toxo-infections can alter neurotransmitter function – bringing anywhere from mild to severe psychotic symptoms. In fact, some medications used to treat schizophrenia are designed to inhibit the replication of T. gondii parasite. Keep in mind that T. gondii can also selectively infect muscle and brain tissue consequently causing encephalitis, incoordination, tremors, head-shaking, seizures, deafness, cerebral palsy, delusions, hallucinations, impaired learning, organ inflammation, cancer and many other conditions. T. gondii in utero causes abortions and stillbirths. But here’s the kicker: sometimes the effects from this parasite don’t manifest for decades! The test for toxoplasmosis is a simple blood test checking for T. gondii antibodies and the treatment is usually easy. Oh, and the ravages of damage from this parasite are not limited to humans and can infect other species of pets and animals, causing personality changes in them too! Raw daikon, horseradish, garlic, oregano and goldenseal are all natural T. gondii fighters.

Crazy for drugs

Crazy trivia: Americans are just CRAZY for their prescription medications. In fact, 2014 brought an eye-popping 4.3 billion prescriptions filled at a pricey $374 billion. Yes, that’s with a ‘B’ for billion. The real question with all the medicine we take is: Are we actually getting healthier for taking it or getting sicker?

GABA for hyperactivity and stress relief

Here is my latest article on GABA: Along with calming the brain and central nervous system, GABA is required to make muscles relax and reset posture. GABA is responsible for making a normal wave of motion when walking, running or swimming.

Safer in the summer sun with PABA

It is summer sun time which makes it time to talk about Para AminoBenzoic Acid (PABA). Did you know that supplemental PABA is a natural skin cancer deterrent and free radical fighter that protects against oxidative damage? PABA is what a healthy body – along with a good diet – produces to generate protectant skin pigment for a natural defense against sunburn and other skin damage. If you are PABA deficient, you will sunburn easily… But, if you do sunburn easily, DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT! rely on toxic sunscreen slathers thinking they will safely defend you against some unseen enemy as they actually are a potentially deadlier enemy. The truth is, if you burn easily, you are probably just low on PABA (but not the chemical form listed in the toxic sunscreen ingredients). Always start your supplemental PABA at least a week before going into the sun. Keep in mind that if you stay in the sun too long – you will still burn. But, you will be able to stay in the sun longer, brown better and avoid more cancer-causing free radical damage while taking PABA.

The sun is not our enemy!

Chemo on my mind and in my brain

Chemo brain is cognitive impairment that occurs in many cancer patients treated with Big Pharma interventions like radiation, hormone, and chemotherapy. This is technically brain damage that occurs during and shortly after cancer treatment that causes forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, problems recalling information, trouble multi-tasking and a general slowing down at processing information. The sad fact is that up to 70% of conventional treatment cancer patients experience this kind of cognitive damage. Men undergoing androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for prostate cancer actually experience chemo brain rates at higher than other treatment rates. The real butt-kicker of all this is that chemo brain is one of the milder side effects of medical cancer treatment. The overall 5-year “survival” rate for chemotherapy treated patients is a lousy 2.1%. Choose wisely when you consider taking chemicals or radiation to treat problems rooted in diet, lifestyle and pollutants. A lack of chemo/radiation didn’t cause your lousy diet and chemo/radiation truly won’t fix your cancer!

Drink milk for more cancer!

Did you know that the recommended three glasses of milk a day has been linked to shorter lifespans along with more broken bones? In fact, a large study in the BMJ 2014 showed that “high milk intake was associated with higher mortality in one cohort of women and in another cohort of men, and with higher fracture incidence in women.” That ‘three-a-day’ milk habit actually gave women a 60% increase in hip fractures, a 90% increase in death by cardiovascular disease and 44% more deaths by cancer as compared to the one-a-day glass of milk drinkers. Well, with milk sales in the tank, the dairy industry has recently locked arms with Coca-Cola to create the monster milk drink Fairlife which has an unnatural 50% more protein, 30% more calcium, 50% percent less sugar, and an amazing shelf life of 100 days. The fact is that normal cows’ milk already has three times more protein than human milk and when you toss back a glass of this stuff, a large amount of the protein is converted into acids – which actually leaches more calcium from the bones than was in the milk in the first place!

It’s in your soaps and medicines

Studies have found that antimicrobial soaps are actually no better at killing germs than the plain old soap – and the FDA admits it! Formaldehyde, dioxane, phthalates, parabens, propylene, sodium laureth sulphate and much more goes into personal care products and straight into your body. Did you know they even put some of this kind of stuff in vaccines?

Hippy-dippy toothbrushing

Want healthier teeth and gums? Then you must ditch the regular toothpastes and switch to tooth powder. Regular toothpaste has glycerin which works against your teeth to plug up the living dentinal tubules which allow the teeth to re-mineralize and repair naturally. Besides this, fluoride toothpaste is just plain poison – no, really – poison! One half a tube of fluoride toothpaste ingested by a small child can actually kill them dead… Besides that, it is natural calcium fluoride that builds healthy bones and teeth – not the man-made toxic sodium fluoride. Ok, how about this ingredient found in regular toothpaste: Sodium lauryl sulfate (which is an industrial degreaser), that is found in most toothpastes but is a known kidney, liver and nerve killer, a skin irritant and is also a carcinogen. What you’ll find in a quality tooth powder (like Simply Sooney) are things like bentonite, magnesium and calcium, baking soda, cinnamon, organic oils and other hippy-dippy wonderfuls that I personally approve of. A spray of food-grade hydrogen peroxide to wet the toothbrush first can also help chase away gingivitis and bad breath.

Remember to only brush the teeth that you want to keep.
