by PAUL FASSA First realize that even without being diagnosed with cancer, we all have at least a few cancerous cells floating around in our “inner terrain”. A decent immune system residing in a slightly alkaline or neutral pH inner terrain is able to fend them off and keep them from colonizing into tumorous masses.…
At 10 months of age, Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma. He endured chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and surgery for two years—and survived. Then he was diagnosed with something permanent: severe autism that disabled him from speaking. “While he was in the hospital, we noticed he didn’t…
Health is a muddy concept in our modern society and on homesteads today. It often gets lumped into dress sizes and hardness of muscles. Personally, my health doesn’t fit into such rigid and limited ideas. Health is a much bigger concept and so much more basic than that, isn’t it? I doubt very seriously that […]
Nobody batted an eye back in 1990 when my friend and I started our business. Besides taking care of other people’s kids, I used to stay home from the age of 9 when my parents worked out at a local health club. I also remember sitting in the car while my mom ran errands from about the age of 6. I used to spend long summer days wandering my suburban neighborhood with the directive to “be home before dinner.” I was a responsible and confident kid—I had common sense and wasn’t afraid to ask for directions or to talk to adults. I felt like I was a part of my community and my parents trusted me to make smart decisions. But in the last decade or so, the concept of “no child left alone” (check out this book by the same title) has become not only the social norm, but a legal one in the United States. There are many reasons for this, but a recent study is shedding light on why these attitudes have changed in recent years.
While a child abduction by a stranger occurs just .00007 per cent of the time (or one in a 1.4 million chance annually) news coverage of these highly improbable and unlikely situations is shown on a massive loop and given a disproportionate amount of air time, amping up parents’ and children’s fears alike. Even if you are not influenced by media coverage, the completely sound choice to leave your 11, 12, or 13-year old child alone at a local park or even in a well-ventilated car on a mild day, can still get you arrested. In fact, the fears the media purports spreads to judges, police officers, and juries as well. I absolutely do not feel comfortable letting my kids play alone outside in a public place, even for short periods of time. This has nothing to do with a fear of abduction or with the fact that I don’t trust them to make sound decisions—it has everything to do with a fear of legal ramifications.
Childhood obesity rates are soaring because kids must remain indoors unless they are closely supervised by adults. Screentime has replaced sending your kids out to play and an overall “failure to launch” can be seen in college students (see the book How to Raise an Adult for shocking examples of college freshmen behaving like babies). Meanwhile, the number of young adults living at home beyond age 30 is growing every year.
One simple way to remedy this is to start raising your children to be more self-reliant. Simply allowing them to figure out issues for themselves and not intervening is a great way to put them on the road to being more reliant on themselve...

Ginger is mentioned in ancient Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern writing, and had been prized throughout several millennia for its culinary and medicinal properties.
Ginger is high in potassium and manganese, which are very
important for heart function. Manganese builds resistance to
disease and protects the lining of the heart and circulatory
system. Ginger is loaded with silicon. It contributes to
healthy skin, hair, teeth and nails. It contains Vitamins A,
C, E, and the B complex, along with magnesium, phosphorus, sodium,
iron, zinc, calcium, and beta-carotene.
A study published in the Journal of Natural Products found that crude ginger extracts and gingerol derivatives could prevent joint inflammation. A later study, published in Phytotherapy Research, discovered that ginger could alleviate neuropathic pain in rats.
Ginger contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called
gingerols which help treat joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger
has also been scientifically proven is case series studies to help
prevent migraine headaches when taken regularly.
First, you need to grate the ginger. Zester works well for this
purpose. Add 2-3 cups of water and the juice of half a lemon. Stir
in some honey. Your pain reliever is ready for use. Enjoy it every
day, and watch your ache disappear.

Losing a first tooth is
something of a rite of passage for kids everywhere. It’s a
sign that you’re growing up and getting bigger. And if you’re like
a lot of people, it also meant a little cash under your pillow in
the morning from the “tooth fairy.”
And if you grew up to have kids of your own, maybe you remember taking on the time-honored role of tooth fairy and slipping some money under your kids’ pillows to celebrate this new stage in their lives. And the kids get to buy a little something for themselves, or like one little boy, pay it forward with a kind gesture.
But what do you do with the tooth after you swap it out for a dollar? Some people keep them as sentimental keepsakes, but many simply toss them. After all, what can a shed baby tooth really do for you?
Well, as it turns out, quite a bit.
A study in 2003 showed that baby teeth are a rich source of stem cells, which are like protocells that can be grown into multiple kinds of cells if needed.
That means that if later in life, a child needs replacement tissue for whatever reason, the stem cells from their baby teeth can be used to grow the needed tissue. Pretty amazing!
Potentially, the practice of storing baby teeth could save lives and treat a variety of ailments. Read on to learn more about this amazing process.[H/T: David Wolfe, StemSave]
Losing baby teeth, or deciduous teeth, as they’re properly known, is a rite of passage for kids everywhere.
Most of us can remember that first little wiggle that let us know a change was coming, and then the weird absence of a tooth when it finally fell out.
But what we remember the most? The promise of a cash reward, courtesy of the tooth fairy!
If you need to be healthier, have no problems with the body, have energy and live longer, this is the herb! Moringa oleifera is the magical plant of South Asia. It was used in tradition and medicine for many years. It’s also known as drumstick and is powerful with antioxidant amount.
It is proven to be healthy, yet there is still time to examine its benefits more.
These are the 7 reasons for consuming its fruits and leaves.
The fruits and leaves of this herb have many minerals and vitamins. Also, 1 cup of pods gives you 157% RDA vitamin C.
One cup also has:
Consuming this plant makes bone density better. It has calcium and iron that stops bone loss. Also, give it to adolescent in growing to boost their stamina and health.
This herb has antioxidants and fights free radicals. It stops cancer in forming. It also has vitamin C and beta carotene, but chlorogenic acid and quercetin too. They are the best shield to these radicals.
Take the roots of this herb and make juice. Mix it with jiggery equal parts and sip it.
This can soothe issues like conjunctivitis. Take the leaves and grind them well, and this pasty cream should be put on the eyes. If you make this juice with honey, you can use it as eyeliner and resolve corneal issues. Also, it reduces swelling of the eyes.
In case you’re diabetic, this herb can help with that. If the blood sugar is abnormal for some time, get this plant. Studies showed that this positively resolves this issue and it was tested on animals. Some human studies are in progress too. A study having 30 females showed that when they were given 7g leaf powder for 3 months, their blood sugar leveled by 13.5%.
These moringa pods and leafs are also great for cleansing the blood. Make it in soup for example, and this will also cleanse acne and skin problems. The juice can be used topically on the acne and pimples and it will heal them since it is antibiotic.
Due to the amounts of vitamin A, aging is slowed down. Also vision is improved and immunity strengthened.
Still, moringa is yet to be explored. One thing is for sure, it
is healthy and you can freely include it in your diet.

Therefore, people often feel anxious and fail to lead a normal everyday life. In the case of severe anxiety, people worry about too many things without a rational reason, and it severely impedes their normal skills and activities in life.
All around the world, but especially in America, the anxiety disorder is the most common mental illness. Only in the U.S., about 6.8 million adults suffer from generalized anxiety disorder.
Also, women are more prone to this disorder than men. Anxiety most commonly appears in adolescence and its symptoms tend to intensify over time.
Sometimes, depression and anxiety may be caused by a neurochemical imbalance in the body, like a lack of serotonin or dopamine.
Here are the most common symptoms of anxiety in women:
In most cases, anxiety is treated with benzodiazepines like Xanax, Valium, and Ativan.
Yet, these medications cause addictions, so when the patients become dependent on these chemicals, they develop additional psychological and physical distress, as well as withdrawal symptoms, is they quit their use.
In some cases, the treatment of chronic anxiety or panic attacks involves antidepressants, such as Lexapro, Paxil, Effexor, Prozac, and Zoloft, which often fail to deliver results, but cause severe adverse effects.
On the other hand, numerous leading researchers have suggested that lavender is an extremely effective herb in the natural treatment of anxiety. The journal Phytomedicine published a study which showed that lavender oil was shown is as effective as the pharmaceutical drug lorazepam (Ativan).
Additionally, this oil had no potential for dependence or drug abuse and has no sedative effects.
Many other studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of lavender oil in the case of anxiety, including:

In order to prepare lavender tea, just add 1- 2 tablespoons of whole, dried flowers to a cup of boiling water, and steep for 10- 15 minutes, Then, just strain...
Did you know that sweat fights off infections? It’s true! Sweat contains a compound called dermicidin that kills off harmful bacteria before they get inside your body.
Of course, antiperspirant completely ruins this process by clogging your sweat ducts with toxins like aluminum. The bacteria on your skin is then left to grow, multiply and get into your bloodstream. So yeah, stay away from antiperspirant. You should be careful about commercial deodorant too; most contain harmful toxins that cause cancer, Alzheimer’s and reproductive damage.
You’ll need a freshly-ripened lime. Cut it in half and rub one piece into your armpit. Then, repeat on the other side.
Let your armpits air dry before you put a shirt on; this will give the citric acid time to get to work. It will also prevent your clothes from getting stained by the lime juice.
And voila! That’s it – you should be good for several hours.
Hang onto those lime slices and keep them in a marked container. You should be able to get at least a few days of odor protection out of each slice.
Sweat itself doesn’t actually smell that bad. What smells is the bacteria and fungi that avoids being killed off by your sweat’s dermicidin. This bacteria continues to thrive and multiply throughout your armpits.
Lime juice – a powerful antibacterial substance – takes care of those stray growths.
In other words, it stops the odor from appearing instead of just masking it like deodorant does.

Bitter melon has a very long history of medicinal use in the East. It has been used traditionally for high blood pressure, skin infections, painful menstruation, kidney stones, colic, malaria, glaucoma,high cholesterol, diarrhea, stomach cramps, hemorrhoids, and fever.
Bitter melon contains alkaloids, glycoside, peptides, acids, cucurbitins, charantin, cucurbitacins, momordine, momorcharins, and proteins. It is thought that the primary constituents responsible for the hypoglycemic properties are charantin, cucurbutanoids, momordicin, and oleanolic acids. Recent scientific findings have been pointing to the hypoglycaemic and anticancer effects of bitter melon.
Bitter Melon and Diabetes
The researchers at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica have discovered the efficacy of treating Type 2 diabetes with bitter melon.
Bitter melon contains certain chemical compounds that activate
AMPK which encourages the movement of glucose transporters to the
surface of cells. “More transporters on cells’ surfaces increase
the uptake of glucose from circulation in the blood into tissues of
the body, such as muscle, thus lowering blood sugar levels.”
In the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, researchers concluded that, “Bitter melon had a modest hypoglycemic effect and significantly reduced fructosamine levels from the baseline among patients with type-2 diabetes who received 2,000 mg/day. However, the hypoglycemic effect of bitter melon was less than metformin at 1,000 mg/day.”
Bitter Melon and Breast Cancer
A new study by Saint Louis University scientists found that bitter melon extract triggers a chain of events on a cellular level that stops breast cancer cells from multiplying and also kills them. According to lead researcher, “bitter melon extract modulates several signal transduction pathways, which induces breast cancer cell death. This extract can be utilized as a dietary supplement for the prevention of breast cancer.”
Bitter melon can be eaten as a fruit, made into a drink, or added to your smoothies. Bitter melon extract is also available as a herbal supplement.

Bananas also provide a wide array of medicinal properties. Consuming this fruit on a regular daily basis can help with a number of health issues including:
These are the top 10 health benefits of consuming bananas on a
Bananas are abundant in dietary fiber, which is extremely effective in fighting indigestion and constipation by regulating bowel movement.
Bananas can keep blood sugar levels under control and are especially beneficial for diabetics. Plus, they fight depression, PMS symptoms and improve your mood.
Bananas protect against calcium loss in the body. They also improve mineral absorption by your bones and teeth thus making them stronger.
Owing to their high potassium content (potassium is one of the minerals essential for proper brain function), bananas improve your cognitive and reasoning ability.
By promoting calcium absorption in the body thus preventing kidney stone formation, bananas protect against kidney cancer. They also improve teeth and bone health while protecting against macular degeneration.
Bananas are rich in iron which improves blood quality thus extremely beneficial for fighting anemia.
Eating bananas on a regular basis significantly increases your energy levels. Eating a banana or two before a workout will give you all the energy you need for the gym.
Owing to their high potassium and low sodium content, bananas also reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke when consumed on a regular basis.
Bananas are high in tryptophan which transforms into serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a brain neurotransmitter that controls your mood.
Last, but not least, bananas are abundant in vitamin B6, which
reduces joint inflammation. It also fights type II diabetes,
stimulates the production of white blood cells and improves your
The military doctrine of both North Korea and Iran call for a first-strike against the continental United States using an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) generating warhead. I wish to pen the caveat that I have been stating in my articles repeatedly for quite some time, now, hoping they will be taken into consideration:
A war would be kicked off with an EMP weapon detonated over the Continental United States, then a nuclear exchange, resulting in a World War.
That being said, there are numerous sites available for study of EMP effects as well as the nuclear threat capabilities of the countries previously mentioned. Read the briefings of Dr. Peter V. Pry who heads the committee to assess the threat of EMP against the United States. His writings and testimony before sessions of Congress between 2006 to 2009 are readily available and downloadable from the internet. He also expounds on the fact that he is certain that North Korea has the capabilities of miniaturizing a warhead to deliver an EMP, and they have already done so.
I recently submitted a piece to SHTFplan.com that details the effects of an EMP on vehicles, as well as some sites to research. In the interim, what can we do to reduce those effects? One of the things is a grounding wire, a simple term that we can “complicate” further by expounding on measures (shoebox, field-expedient measures) that you can do…and that I have already done for myself…to give your vehicle a better chance against an EMP.
Firstly, the majority of the testing done by the government and private companies conclude that most vehicles will be unaffected by the EMP. I wrote “most,” and the thing that it doesn’t take into consideration is the amount of complex micro circuitry and computer chips that exist in most cars after 1990. The engine of the vehicle may remain intact; however, computer ignition systems and sensitive microcircuits that control a great deal of a vehicle’s internal functions could be fried instantaneously. If the engine is fine, but it won’t start because the chip in the ignition is fried, well, the result would answer the question.
One of the possible solutions would be the grounding wire. For decades all the way up to the present day, 18-wheelers have all utilized grounding wires attached to their frames both to protect from lightning strike and from static electrical discharge when they are delivering flammable cargoes such as fuel to filling stations or heating oil to homes. It is this principle that you too can follow after, along with a grounding chain, to help protect your vehicle from the EMP.

Research presented by Professor Nigel Bundred at the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam revealed that they had tested the effectiveness of a pair of drugs known as Herceptin (a.k.a trastuzumab) and Lapatinib.
The two drugs are commonly used in breast cancer treatment already, but this is the first time they had been combined together and used before surgery and chemotherapy. What they found was they were able to eliminate some types of breast cancer in just 11 days.
Funded by Cancer Research UK, they aimed to use these drugs to combat a protein called HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) which affects the growth and division of cancer cells. It’s also more likely to return than other cancer types.
What also makes this treatment so appealing is the fact that it eliminates the need for chemotherapy and surgery. The temporary side effects like hair loss, vomiting and fatigue are also avoided, making treatment less impactful on the body. Chemo is not entirely effective, nor is it the right choice for a lot of patients, so any alternatives are welcomed.
257 women with HER2 positive breast cancer were selected for the study, with half being put on the drug combo and the other half were the control group. What they found was that of those on the drug, 11% had no cancer cells remaining within two weeks and 17% of cases featured dramatically shrunken tumors.
Compared to the control group who were only given Herceptin, they were found to have 0% with no trace of cancer cells and only 3% showed a drop in tumor size. Clearly, the two drugs combined have a major effect on breast cancer cells as opposed to being used on their own.
The problem currently, however, is that Herceptin’s licensing makes it only available for use alongside chemotherapy and not alone. The results of this study may help to change that though.
Although there’s still a lot of work to be done, hopefully,...
Professor Nigel Bundred presented the research at the European Breast Cancer Conference that took place in Amsterdam. He said that they had tested the effectiveness of drugs called Lapatinib and Herceptin (trastuzumab).
These two drugs are already part of the treatment for breast cancer, but they haven’t been combined previously and haven’t been used prior to chemo and surgery. The researchers discovered that they can put an end to certain cancer types in just 11 days.
The research was funded by Cancer Research UK and they used
these drugs against a protein known as HER2 (human epidermal growth
factor receptor 2). This protein has an effect on the division and
growth of cancer cells. Additionally, the chances that it will
return are bigger than other cancer types.
This study included 257 participants with HER2 positive breast cancer. Half of the participant were given the drug combo, and the second half were the control group. The results showed that from the candidates who were on the drug, 11% had no remaining cancer cells during the first two weeks and 17% had significantly shrunken tumors.
The candidates from the control group were given Herceptin, and it was discovered that only 3 % had shrunken tumors and 0% were with no trace of cancer cells. It is very evident that when the two drugs a combined, they are more powerful against breast cancer.
The big problem is that Herceptin is only licensed for use alongside chemo, but not alone. However, this may change thanks to this study.
At the end of the day, there is still a lot to be done, but
researchers are getting closer and closer to discovering the cure

We suggest a set of 6 exercises which can fully transform your body in a month! What’s great about it all is that you only need 10 minutes a day, and you won’t need to go to the gym or buy some special equipment.
The plank is one of the best full- body exercises ever. It is static, and you should only hold a proper position to get its effects. You should prop yourself on the elbows, forearms, and forefeet, with a straight back.
Note that you should not raise the bottom or lower the waist. You should feel comfortable while holding this position. While standing in this way, you will tone the arm muscles, the abs, the back and the anterior thigh muscles.
From a plank position, just push yourself up with the arms, but with the legs, back, and bottom in a straight line. Then just return to the initial position. This will strain the belly muscles and the arms.
You should stand on the soles, with your feet should be
shoulder-width apart. Start as if slowly sitting down on a low
imaginary chair. Your feet and knees should form a straight line.
For a better balance, you can stretch the arms in front of your
body. When down, slowly push yourself up.

Probably due to the fact hat it is far different from other non-prescription treatments, Vicks VapoRub is incredibly popular over-the-counter medicine, which treats ailments with vapors.
According to Bridie Cavanaugh at eHow, its three main ingredients, menthol, camphor, and eucalyptus oil relieve a cough and congestion through inhalation. Additionally, it also acts as an effective topical analgesic.
Yet , this product offers various other benefits, and can provide surprising effects in the following cases:
You should massage the painful area with this product, and wrap it in a dry, warm towel for dome time, to improve the positive effects.
In most cases, the earache is a result of an ear infection or a common cold. Yet, the pain in the ear is debilitating and makes it very hard to fall asleep. However, you can use Vicks VapoRub to soothe the pain, All you need to do is to rub a little on a cotton ball, put it in the ear, and leave it to act overnight.
In the case of a common headache, just apply some Vicks to the temples to soothe the headache fast, In the case of a sinus headache, put a bit of this ointment under the nose and breathe in slowly and deeply.
To make your heels soft again, just apply Vicks in the evening, and massage the problematic areas. Leave it to act overnight, and in the morning, rinse with warm water and exfoliate with a pumice stone.
Heal bruises and minor cuts
To accelerate the healing process, just run it around smaller cuts, but avoid its use in the case fo open wounds and damaged skin. For bruises, apply a thin layer of Vicks and salt, which will improve blood circulation and heal them fast.
Rub the infected areas with VapoRub 2-3 times daily for several weeks or even a few months, and you will fight the fungus.
Keep animals at bay
If you want to avoid the scratches of your cat on the doors, couch, and curtains, just dab the furniture with it.
Rub some of it on the insect bites o relieve the itching, and apply a bit of Vicks to your clothing and skin to protect yourself from bugs.

Don’t be fooled by the marketing.
Just because it’s on the shelf at Whole Foods Market doesn’t mean it’s good for you! – Tweet this.
I would like to begin by clearly stating that people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity need to meticulously avoid all gluten sources, but they do not need gluten-free junk carbohydrate ingredients in their place. This is the sort of self-destructive thinking encouraged by the gluten-free food industry. This industry makes billions by filling grocery stores with overpriced junk carbohydrates.
Don’t replace one problem with another. Removing gluten but replacing it with excessive carbohydrate intake is causing diabetes, dementia, high blood pressure, obesity (need I go on?) to soar.
In Wheat Belly Total Health, I discussed the need to avoid gluten-free foods made with “junk carb” ingredients like cornstarch, potato flour, tapioca starch, and rice flour. This bears repeating, because so many people continue to hear the Wheat Belly message as a “gluten-free” message.
The Wheat Belly lifestyle means living a healthy grain-free life, not just going gluten-free. – Tweet this!
The majority of gluten-free foods sold in stores pack on the pounds and impair your ability to lose weight. Just because they lack gluten does not make them healthy.
CORN STARCH, RICE FLOUR, TAPIOCA STARCH, OR POTATO FLOUR. These are the four ingredients most commonly used in gluten-free processed foods. They are awful for health and will completely shut down any hope of weight loss, often resulting in outright, sometimes outrageous, weight gain, inflammation.
Managing carbohydrates to improve control over metabolism and health means 100 percent avoidance of these terrible products marketed to an unsuspecting public believing they are eating healthy by avoiding gluten. Nothing raises blood sugar higher than the gluten-free junk carbohydrates in gluten-free multigrain bread, crackers or gluten-free pasta — higher than even table sugar. Blood sugar that results from eating two slices of whole grain gluten-free bread made with potato flour, rice flour, or other unhealthy grains like millet can easily top 180 mg/ dL (in those without diabetes) over the first hour after consumption, regardless of the mayonnaise, meat, cheese, or other foods in the sandwich.
