Five Years! A Letter of Thanks to You Voices For Vaccines

Five years ago, Voices for Vaccines relaunched as a pro-vaccine parent organization.

On a personal level, working with Voices for Vaccines these past five years has been an honor and almost always a true joy. The absolute best part of this job, and of my efforts to coalesce a pro-vaccine movement to do good, has been the people I am privileged to work withnot just doctors and researchers but parents who have made themselves public and parents who just needed an hour of my time to chat by phone. Each of you fuels Voices for Vaccines, and I consider all of you every moment of my work day.

With your hard work and determination, Voices for Vaccines has accomplished much these last five years. So much, that I thought I would compile a very small selection of my favorites (in no particularly order whatsoever). Here it is:

Weaponizing Healthy People Natural Blaze

By Rosanne Lindsay

In the State of Oregon, a sophomore at McKay High School is coerced into getting another vaccine to avoid Exclusion Day to ensure she can continue attending school. Marisol is an aspiring doctor, so she says missing school is not an option.  Schools and daycares are stepping up the pressure, under government oversight, with the message get vaccinated or get shamed, and they are going after healthy and homeschooled kids.

Stigmatizing health has become a government hazing ritual that, ironically, demonizes people who care about their health. Health-conscious people are deemed mentally ill, called health nuts and diagnosed with orthorexia nervosa, which in Latin translates to nervous about correct eating. Orthorexics are people who live a natural life to avoid disease. They are deemed a threat to a government fast loosing power.

In a state of government disarray, first health is stigmatized then it is weaponized.  This process comes directly from the Playbook of the Hegelian Dialectic: Problem, Reaction, Solution. First create the problem (health), then generate a reaction (crazy), and finally, roll out the solution (uniformity through a universal flu vaccine).

However, government must create a compelling interest:

Compelling interest test Legal Definition. n. In constitutional law, a method for determining the constitutionality of a statute that restricts the practice of a fundamental right or distinguishes between people due to a suspect classification.

Are There Parallels Between The Recognized Opioid and Ignored Vaccine Disasters? Natural Blaze

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The Philadelphia Inquirer published Philadelphia sues opioid drugmakers over role in public health nightmare which, ironically, can and should set legal precedent and action for similar lawsuits to be filed against the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Big Pharma corporations and other entities that manufacture and/or distribute vaccines, including GAVI and the UNs World Health Organization [1] for disseminating false, deceptive and misleading information leading to public health and safety crises, especially for infants, toddlers and teens not only in the USA, but globally.

According to The Inquirer article,

The lawsuit states that while Americans are 4.6 percent of the worlds population, they consume 80 percent of the global opioid supply. From 1999 to 2010, the sale of prescription opioids in the U.S. nearly quadrupled. In 2010, there were enough opioids prescribed 254 million prescriptions to medicate every American adult round the clock for a month.

Now, lets juxtapose vaccine stats for just one cohort of U.S. children, 19-35 months old.

Percent of children aged 19-35 months receiving vaccinations for:

Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (4+ doses DTP, DT, or DTaP): 84.6%
Polio (3+ doses): 93.7%

Opioid Drug Overdose Deaths Now Higher Than Breast Cancer In The U.S.A Natural Blaze

By Paul A. Philips

A recent disturbing report by the NCHS (National Center for Health Statistics) a division of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) revealed that 63,000 drug overdose deaths occurred in 2016 in the U.S.A. Thats 3 times higher than what it was in 2009.

Out of those 63,000 deaths 42,249 were attributed to opioid drug overdose. To get some idea on the gravity of the situation, in 2016 that made the 42,249 opioid drug overdose deaths over a 1,000 more than the number of American women who died of breast cancer.

The highly addictive, potentially fatal opioid painkiller drug family includes, for example, the illicit drugs fentanyl, tramadol and heroin; also the legally prescribed medicines hydrocodone and oxycodone. NCHS spokesman Robert Anderson said in so many words that the fatality rates for the opioid epidemic are still rising as indicated by recent provisional data. They have for exceeded the total number of deaths from the Vietnam War.  

As the rate continues to skyrocket, excluding methadone, synthetic opioid fatal overdoses have risen dramatically, averaging out at an increase of 88% for each year from 2013 to 2017. Fatal overdoses through prescription opioid painkillers increased by 13% for each year between the years 1999 2009. However, the rate has slowed down over recent years to an annual increase of 3%. Deaths through heroin overdose continue to rise by an average of 19% for every year since...

Newborn Kidnapped from Hospital at Birth in Alabama Returned to Parents After 2 Years Health Impact News

Avyonna with Haly and Dee Christmas2

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

Baby Avyonna was a newborn nursing at her mothers breast when Alabama social workers seized her from the hospital and placed her into foster care almost 2 years ago. Now, finally, she is home with her parents Haly Boothe and Anthony Lett.

She was taken by Shelby County Department of Human Resources (DHR) just 3 days after she was born.

There were no allegations of abuse or neglect. Avyonna was taken because DHR said they had a pick-up order. Social workers believed they had the right to take the new baby since the department already had Halys other 2 children Haydn and KaMyia in custody.

During the course of the familys involvement with DHR, it became clear that the department had been planning all along to adopt Avyonna out. It was never about anything that Haly or Anthony did or didnt do. It was a foregone conclusion that the people who were adopting her siblings would adopt Avyonna as well.

Medical Doctor Opposed to Mandatory Vaccines Has Life Threatened by Stalker Health Impact News

World-renowned Dr. Suzanne Humphries lectures around the world on the topic of vaccines.

Editor, Health Impact News

On January 19, 2018, Dr. Suzanne Humphries and Polly Tommey (co-producer of the film VAXXED) went live on Facebook to expose a horrific death threat Dr. Humphries had received by email from an apparent cyber-stalker who claimed to be following her movements.

WARNING: Graphic Content Below!

I have been covering the vaccine debate for many years now, and as I have previously written, it is very difficult to carry on any kind of sane, logical discussion with vaccine extremists, those who believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective ALL the time for ALL people and should be administered to EVERYONE by force if necessary.

This view is primarily a belief about vaccines, much like a religious belief that requires faith, and is not based on scientific facts. Those who hold to this belief make the bold claim that the science is settled regarding vaccines, which is in itself a very obvious un-scientific statement, as true science is always evolving and discovering new truths.

The corporate media, which generates large amounts of revenue from pharmaceutical advertising, would like the public to believe that this extremist view of vaccines is shared by all medical doctors. Any view to the contrary is routinely censored in the corporate mainstream media.

But this extremist view and belief about vaccines is not shared by all physicians far from it. There are many medical doctors who question vaccines, and do not believe in mandatory vaccines and a one-size-fits-all approach to vaccines. See:

How to Get Rid of Armpit Rash: Natural Remedies That Really Work Healthy and Natural World

Having an armpit rash may cause a lot of itching, pain, and discomfort and be difficult to treat. Underarm rashes are very common and can affect adults and children alike. Because the armpits are generally dark, moist and sweaty, they can be a breeding ground for germs which can infect and irritate the skin. Also, chaffing from moving your arms can be a cause of a rash in your underarm that results in itchy red patches. The rubbing in your armpits can also make getting rid of the armpit rash more difficult.

A rash in your armpit is usually caused by irritation from deodorant, shaving your armpits, a fungal or bacterial infection, or eczema. These conditions can result in an itchy red rash that might be sore and become more painful if you scratch it. Sometimes, the underarm rash in one or both of your armpits can become scaly and cracked and may bleed if the skin becomes dry and irritated. If bacteria get into the damaged skin, you might see some pus-filled bumps.

In this article, I will discuss what medical research has revealed about the causes of armpit rashes. You will also find out the best natural home remedies to treat the red itchy patches of skin that can appear in your underarm area.

Symptoms of a Rash in Your Armpit

Conditions that cause armpit rashes can produce a range of symptoms. For some people, a reaction to hygiene products or clothing can cause mild itching with or without a red patch of skin. If you suffer from dermatitis you might find that you have a severe reaction causing a very itchy rash that may leak fluid and crust over.

To get rid of the effects of an armpit fungal infection can be more difficult. Yeast or fungal armpit infections will cause patches of skin in your armpit to flare up with intense itching. You may notice small bumps or pustules appear around the edge of the armpit rash.

Some armpit conditions cause patches of red, tender bumps that may become filled with pus and have a bad smell. Of course, in these situations, putting on deodorant or constant rubbing of your skin as you move can just aggravate the symptoms.

Causes of Armpit Rash

Lets look in more detail at the many reasons why you have a rash in your underarm area.

Deodorants that cause irritation

A very common reason for an itchy patch of red skin in one or both armpits is deodorant or antiperspirant.

Deodorants and antiperspirants contain various chemicals to mask the smell that bacteria in old sweat causes. Also, antiperspirants are designed to control sweat by plugging the sweat glands. One or more of these factors could be why your underarm itches throughout the day.

According to research published in the Journal of Cli...

    New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division Established At U.S. Health And Human Services Natural Blaze

    By Catherine J. Frompovich

    OCR Announces New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division. It will restore federal enforcement of our nations laws that protect the fundamental rights of conscience and religious freedom. https://go.usa.gov/xnvfJ

    The above announcement by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services relates to

    The creation of the new division will provide HHS with the focus it needs to more vigorously and effectively enforce existing laws protecting the rights of conscience and religious freedom, the first freedom protected in the Bill of Rights. [.]

    OCR Director Severino said, Laws protecting religious freedom and conscience rights are just empty words on paper if they arent enforced. No one should be forced to choose between helping sick people and living by ones deepest moral or religious convictions, and the new division will help guarantee that victims of unlawful discrimination find justice. For too long, governments big and small have treated conscience claims with hostility instead of protection, but change is coming and it begins here and now.

    Acting HHS Secretary Hargan said, President Trump promised the American people that his administration would vigorously uphold the rights of conscience and religious freedom. That promise is being kept today. The Founding Fathers knew that a nation that respects conscience rights is more diverse an...

    By Dr. Mercola

    Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to use colors as a way to make your life healthier? The truth is, you can. Dr. Alexander Wunsch, who is based in Germany, is a world-class expert in the use of light as a therapeutic healing agent, and is a human treasure trove of information on a topic that very few people understand.

    In previous interviews, we've discussed the history of photobiology and how LED lighting can compromise your health. Here, our focus in on the therapeutic use of colored light, which Wunsch began experimenting with nearly 25 years ago.

    "My first approach was colorpuncture from Peter Mandel. One evening, I met a friend of mine. I told him I would like to go deeper into the colorpuncture issue and learn more about that. He handed me a book by Darius Dinshah, 'Let There Be Light: Practical Manual for Spectro-Chrome Therapy'

    I thought this is really a fascinating color system. It's not only a color therapy method, it's also a beautiful color system [the way] Dinshah arranged these 12 basic colors, how they compose the Spectro-Chrome color wheel is a pleasure by itself, because it's very symmetric and there's a very logical plan behind it. I started to evaluate this method on my own."

    Why Chromotherapy Was Relegated to the Dustbin

    As noted by Wunsch, who has studied the historical rise and fall of photobiology, in the 1920s, there was a strong push to weed out so-called "quackery" in medicine, although there was no evidence-based medicine to speak of as of yet.

    All physically-based treatments were targeted for elimination, for the simple reason they were unwanted competition standing in the way of the burgeoning drug industry. In this crusade, the Spectro-Chrome method was one of the hundreds of targets of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    READERS SUMMARY:
    How does a good question on the forum lead to a better answer to modern disease?


    There is no trophy in health without a racefor a new truth.

    With many of you gathering with family this holiday weekend here is my little gift for you.  These two diseases just puzzle and confound many.  In this blog you will see a new way to look at these diseases.

    Melasma is one of the most common problems millions of women face and they spend millions of dollars with cosmetics and dermatology consults to try to get rid of the problem.  Melasma is particularly common in women, especially pregnant women and those who are taking oral or patch contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medications.  It is also common in women who go through an early and fast paced menopause.  They also tend to have poor sleep as a stereotype for a deep reason.
    If you ask any dermatologist, if they are honest they will tell you it is one of the toughest 3 things they try to treat.  The main reason it is a tough disease is because we are not thinking about the pathway that forms pigmentation in humans correctly using normal environmental signals.  This pathway is tied to many of the blogs I have already written.  The pathways all tie back to the 3 legged stool of life I wrote about in Energy and Epigenetics 4.  These 3 are,  the photoelectric effect, water chemistry, and the electromagnetic force.
    Most women who have melasma have a history of taking oral birth control pills or exogenous sources of estrogen.  Oral contraceptives deplete nutrients more than any other class of drugs.  The hormones in these drugs are very strong synthetic chemicals.  Nature ever intended for women to put these syntheti...

PMID: 28981841 Abstract Title:  CANADIAN POPULATION RISK OF RADON INDUCED LUNG CANCER-VARIATION RANGE ASSESSMENT BASED ON VARIOUS RADON RISK MODELS. Abstract:  To address public concerns regarding radon risk and variations in risk estimates based on various risk models available in the literature, lifetime lung cancer risks were calculated with five well-known risk models using more recent Canadian vital statistics (5-year averages from 2008 to 2012). Variations in population risk estimation among various models were assessed. The results showed that the Canadian population risk of radon induced lung cancer can vary from 5.0 to 17% for men and 5.1 to 18% for women based on different radon risk models. Averaged over the estimates from various risk models with better radon dosimetry, 13% of lung cancer deaths among Canadian males and 14% of lung cancer deaths among Canadian females were attributable to long-term indoor radon exposure.

    PMID:  J Cancer Prev. 2017 Dec ;22(4):234-240. Epub 2017 Dec 30. PMID: 29302581 Abstract Title:  Novel Genetic Associations Between Lung Cancer and Indoor Radon Exposure. Abstract:  Background: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, for which smoking is considered as the primary risk factor. The present study was conducted to determine whether genetic alterations induced by radon exposure are associated with the susceptible risk of lung cancer in never smokers.Methods: To accurately identify mutations within individual tumors, next generation sequencing was conduct for 19 pairs of lung cancer tissue. The associations of germline and somatic variations with radon exposure were visualized using OncoPrint and heatmap graphs. Bioinformatic analysis was performed using various tools.Results: Alterations in several genes were implicated in lung cancer resulting from exposure to radon indoors, namely those in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), tumor protein p53 (TP53), NK2 homeobox 1 (NKX2.1), phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN), chromodomain helicase DNA binding protein 7 (CHD7), discoidin domain receptor tyrosine kinase 2 (DDR2), lysine methyltransferase 2C (MLL3), chromodomain helicase DNA binding protein 5 (CHD5), FAT atypical cadherin 1 (FAT1), and dual specificity phosphatase 27 (putative) (DUSP27).Conclusions: While these genes might regulate the carcinogenic pathways of radioactivity, further analysis is needed to determine whether the genes are indeed completely responsible for causing lung cancer in never smokers exposed to residential radon.

    Is DCIS Overrated? GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Cancer Treat Res. 2018 ;173:53-72. PMID: 29349758 Abstract Title:  Is DCIS Overrated? Abstract:  Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), the noninvasive form of breast cancer (BC), comprises just over 20% of breast cancer cases diagnosed each year in the USA. Most patients are treated with local excision of the disease followed by whole breast radiation therapy. Total mastectomy is not an uncommon approach, and total mastectomy with a contralateral risk-reducing mastectomy has been on the rise in the past decade. In estrogen receptor-positive disease, patients are often offered endocrine ablative therapy with a selective estrogen receptor modulator or an aromatase inhibitor as both treatment and prevention. Local regional treatment options have no impact upon ultimate overall survival. Long-term survival rates are higher in patients with DCIS than with any other form of the disease. Are these strikingly high success rates a testament to effective treatment strategies or is there a significant subset of DCIS that was unlikely to ever progress to invasive ductal carcinoma? DCIS was not seen in the US prior to the advent of screening mammography. When compared to other countries, the USA has the highest utilization of screening mammography and the incidence rate of DCIS. Other lines of evidence include autopsy series examining the breast tissue of women who died of other causes, missed-diagnosis series and current retrospective reviews of DCIS, all align in support of the concept of DCIS as indolent in the majority of cases [3-14]. The evidence suggests that both patient and physician misconceptions about DCIS have led to overdiagnosis and over-treatment of DCIS. Recently, a gene expression profiling tool (12 gene assay, Oncotype DCIS) has emerged that shows considerable promise in predicting class in DCIS patients.

    Autopsy Reveals Tom Petty Died of Accidental Drug Overdose, Another Casualty of Big Pharma Natural Blaze

    By Alex Pietrowski

    Legendary rocker Tom Petty passed away recently, on October 2, 2017 of cardiac arrest in his home in California. Now, some three months later, an autopsy has revealed the true cause of death to be accidental overdose on prescription medications.

    Petty had a mixture of fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetylfentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl in his system. The musician, 66, was found unconscious and in cardiac arrest at his Malibu home on Oct. 3 and died at the UCLA Medical Center that evening. [Source]

    A social media post by his wife and daughter reveals this information and offers insight into what Petty was going through medically at the time of his death.

    Our family sat together this morning with the Medical Examiner Coroners office and we were informed of their final analysis that Tom Petty passed away due to an accidental drug overdose as a result of taking a variety of medications.

    Unfortunately Toms body suffered from many serious ailments including emphysema, knee problems and most significantly a fractured hip.

    Despite this painful injury he insisted on keeping his commitment to his fans and he toured for 53 dates with a fractured hip and, as he did, it worsened to a more serious injury.

    This meta-analysis of RCTs showed significant reductions in both SBP and DBP following supplementation with various flaxseed products. GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Clin Nutr. 2016 Jun ;35(3):615-25. Epub 2015 May 29. PMID: 26071633 Abstract Title:  Effects of flaxseed supplements on blood pressure: A systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled clinical trial. Abstract:  BACKGROUND & AIMS: Many experimental and clinical trials suggested that flaxseed might be a potent antihypertensive, but the evidences concerning the effects of flaxseed supplements on blood pressure (BP) has not been fully conclusive. We aimed to assess the impact of the effects of flaxseed supplements on blood pressure through systematic review of literature and meta-analysis of available randomized controlled trials (RCTs).METHODS: The literature search included PUBMED, Cochrane Library, Scopus, and EMBASE up to February 2015 to identify RCTs investigating the effect of flaxseed supplements on plasma blood pressure. Effect size was expressed as weighed mean difference (WMD) and 95% confidence interval (CI).RESULTS: 15 trials (comprising 19 treatment arms) with 1302 participants were included in this meta-analysis. Random-effects meta-analysis suggested significant reductions in both systolic BP (SBP) (WMD: -2.85 mmHg, 95%CI: -5.37 to -0.33, p = 0.027) and diastolic BP (DBP) (WMD: -2.39 mmHg, 95%CI: -3.78 to -0.99, p = 0.001) following supplementation with flaxseed products. When the studies were stratified according to their duration, there was a greater effect on both SBP and DBP in thesubset of trials with 12 weeks of duration (WMD: -3.10 mmHg, 95%CI: -6.46 to 0.27, p = 0.072 and -2.62 mmHg, 95%CI: -4.39 to -0.86, p = 0.003, respectively) vs the subset lasting

    Research Finds Male Infertility May be One of the Side Effects of Ibuprofen Natural Blaze

    By Anna Hunt

    A team of Danish and French researchers have found that ibuprofen may be one of the culprits responsible for male infertility. The study showed that daily intake of the drug creates a hormonal condition associated with impaired fertility, depression and increased risk of cardiovascular events.

    New Research Raises Ibuprofen Safety Concerns

    Ibuprofen is one of the most common over-the-counter pain relief medicines. The medical industry categorizes it as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs). Because the drug is readily available without a prescription, most people think its safe. As well, with OTC drugs there is typically no medical professional to raise attention to the potential side-effects of the drug.

    Scientific research has already implicated ibuprofen as having some negative effects on our health. Now, this new clinical study has found that ibuprofen may be one of the causes of male infertility. The research team writes:

    Using a unique combination of a randomized, controlled clinical trial and ex vivo and in vitro approaches, we report a univocal depression of important aspects of testicular function, including testosterone production, after use of over-the-counter ibuprofen.

    They add:

    The study shows that ibuprofen use results in selective transcriptional repression of endocrine cells in the human test...

    The Vaccine Program: Betrayal of Public Trust and Institutional Corruption Natural Blaze

    By Vera Sharav

    Shades of Dreyfus & BMJs Descent into Tabloid Science

    Note from the WMP Team: In the coming days, WMP will republish Vera Sharavs Betrayal of Public Trust & Institutional Corruption: Vaccine Safety Assessments & Vaccine Science Falsified to Support Vaccination Policy  originally published on the website: Alliance for Human Research Protection. Ms. Sharav is a Holocaust survivor and a fierce critic of the medical establishment. Her research is a must-read by those in our community because it explains the intricate groundwork that has led us to the debacle we are now living with an epidemic of sick children. Through understanding the past, we can change the future.

    Following is the first of a seven-part series of Sharavs in-depth expos of the complex and widespread corruption that exists in the vaccination program. Her investigation has uncovered decades-long fraudulent activity that has permeated the vaccine industry. 

    Sharavs Introduction: I have undertaken this review of the case against Dr. Andrew Wakefield because the issues involved are far more consequential than the vilification of one doctor. The issues, as I see them, involve (a) collusion of public health officials to deceive the public by concealing scientific evidence that confirms empirical evidence of serious harm linked to vaccines in particular polyvalent vaccines; (b) the willful blindness by the medical community as it uncritically fell in line with a government dictated vaccination policy driven by corporate business interests.

    Public health officials and the medical profession have abrogated their professional, public, and human responsibility, by failing to honestly examine the iatrogenic harm caused by expansive, indiscriminate, and increasingly aggressive vaccinatio...

    'Police State' Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status GreenMedInfo

    ACTION ALERT: Oppose Unconstitutional State Forced Vaccine Tracking of Your Family - OPPOSE SB 1680 and HB 1045 (FL)

    Your government is watching and tracking your decisions even saying "No" to vaccines.

    The Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information into a database. [1] This effort has been run in parallel with state vaccine registry implementations.

    What is the intention of such programs?

    My colleague Leslie Manookian, writer and director of the movie The Greater Good, wrote in a recent article, the "CDC has openly stated that vaccine registries are a tool to identify areas of 'undervaccination' so that they can be 'addressed' and brought into 'compliance.'" [2]

    Video Games on a Psychoanalysts Couch Mad In America

    From Asia Times: In his new book The Playstation Dreamworld, Alfie Brown discusses the role of video games in both reinforcing and challenging capitalism through the lens of Freudian dream analysis.

    Video games are a form of enjoyment in which the player experiences the wishes and desires of another as the wishes and desires of the players own, if even in a momentary or unconscious way, Bown claims.

    Games are experienced actively rather than passively, and any apparent agency over a game is illusory as the player controls neither the environment nor the plot or outcome, as in dreams.

    Just as a misreading of dreams can lead one into falsely believing things about oneself, video games are most dangerous in their capacity to force a desire onto the player while misleading them into thinking of it as their own.

    Kelli Foulkrod: Integrating Yoga with Psychotherapy Mad In America

    This week on MIA Radio, we interview Kelli Foulkrod. Kelli is the owner of the Organic Mental Health Center.  She is a therapist, yoga teacher, and mental health paradigm shifter based in Austin, Texas.  For the past 15 years, Kelli has worked in the mental health field and practised yoga. She has been integrating yoga and the healing arts into traditional psychotherapy for over eight years and is passionate about offering holistic mental health treatment options.

    With many years experience in an academic research setting, Kelli bridges the gap between science and spirituality.  Kelli has experience serving clients populations of pregnant and postpartum women, grief and loss, psychosis, homelessness, substance abuse, teens, couples, and groups.  She offers individual, couples, and group psychotherapy services in addition to yoga therapy sessions, workshops, and retreats.

    In the episode we discuss:

    • How Kelli started her journey as a psychology undergraduate at the University of Texas and working in clinical and academic research.
    • How working in a neuroscience laboratory resulted in internal conflict and led Kelli to interest in and research into alternative modalities alongside her psychology studies.
    • How Kelli experienced first hand the approaches that pharmaceutical manufacturers used when running clinical trials.
    • That Kelli felt that modern psychology neglects the body and she started to practise yoga and meditation alongside studying for her Masters degree in clinical psychology.
    • That, to Kelli, modern mental health therapy feels egotistical and narcissistic and that she was resistant to becoming a clinical therapist.
    • How people are hungry for alternatives but there are so few other options that people continue to get involved with mainstream medicine.
    • The profound changes that occur when becoming parents and why this might lead to mental health difficulties.
    • How we have lost touch with community and social connections that existed when we lived as tribal cultures.
    • How shamanic ceremony and tradition can be understood and utilised in response to emotional distress.

    Is Everything Johann Hari Knows About Depression Wrong? Mad In America

    In this piece for The Guardian, Dean Burnett critiques Johann Haris new book challenging what we know about depression. According to Burnett, many of the points Hari presents as fringe or new information are already widely accepted.

    Hari does make several valid points, in his defence. The claim that depression is purely a result of lowered serotonin levels is indeed one that can and should be challenged. Antidepressant use isnt effective for everyone, and even if youre taking them the problem theyre supposed to be addressing can often return or eventually get worse. External factors in your life can be a big part, if not the main part, of an eventual depression diagnosis. This is all true.

    However, despite Haris prose suggesting hes uncovered numerous revelations, pretty much everything he reveals is well known already.

    Grounding A Simple, Pleasurable Way to Reduce Inflammation and Chronic Disease Articles

    30 Tips in 30 Days Designed to Help You Take Control of Your Health

    This article is part of the 30 Day Resolution Guide series. Each day a new tip will be added designed to help you take control of your health. For a complete list of the tips click HERE

    By Dr. Mercola

    Did you know the energy from the Earth can help you live a healthier life? The concept is known as earthing or grounding, which is no more complicated than walking barefoot.

    In "Down to Earth"1 which received the IndieFEST Award of Excellence for a documentary short in January 20172 I speak alongside other experts to shed light on this super simple yet commonly overlooked way to protect and improve human health. As cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra, author of "Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?" explains in the film:

    "[G]rounding is literally putting your bare feet on the ground. When you do that, you're in contact with the Earth, and mother Earth is endowed with electrons, and these electrons are literally absorbed through your feet. It's like taking handfuls of antioxidants, but you're getting it through your feet."

    Your Body Needs Grounding

    Research suggests a general lack of grounding, also referred to as "electron deficiency syndrome," has a lot to do with the rise of modern diseases. For a visual demonstration of this concept, see this previous article, which features an experiment conducted by Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., at the University of Arizona. Using sunflowers, he demonstrates the biological effects of grounding and what happens when the flowers are not grounded.

    It's not unusual for Americans to spend entire days without being grounded. But though it has become the norm, it's completely unnatural, and didn't really become widespread until the advent of shoes with artificial soles that prevent grounding. When you're grounded, free electrons from the Earth are transferred into your body, and these free electrons are among the most potent antioxidants known to man.

    As electrons are negatively charged and free radicals are positively charged, any free radicals encountered in your tissues are electrically neutralized or canceled o...

    Is it Normal for Joints to Pop, Creak and Crack? Articles

    By Dr. Mercola

    If the popping or cracking sounds of your joints have ever given you cause for worry, youll be relieved to know that it is normal for your joints to occasionally talk to you. It is common to hear occasional joint sounds when you move in everyday ways, such as bending over to retrieve a dropped item or walking up or down stairs. Dr. William Shiel, chief editor and co-founder of the medical-information website MedicineNet.com, says:1

    The symptom of joint cracking is described differently by different people, while nevertheless representing the same condition. Various descriptions for the same process include popping, exploding, noise, snapping and creaking of a joint.

    The most common and less serious joint popping that occurs most often is caused by knuckle cracking or a certain manner of bending or twisting the body to relieve pressure.

    One cause for the sounds is the reality that your soft tissues, such as ligaments and tendons, frequently contact your bones and other tissues as you move. Pockets of nitrogen gas within your joint fluid, which help with joint lubrication and nutrition, can also be responsible for some of the sounds.

    To date there is insufficient evidence linking joint sounds and arthritis. Furthermore, cracking your joints does not cause them to swell up or become arthritic. That said, unless you are experiencing pain and swelling, rest assured that most joint sounds generally are normal, not harmful.

    What Are Your Joints Trying to Tell You?

    Dr. Aman Dhawan, an orthopedic sports-medicine specialist at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, says, Joint sounds are not really an indicator of health or lack of health.2

    In terms of cracking your joints, there is insufficient evidence to support the belief that it causes cartilage to wear down or that it will permanently loosen the joints. It may be irritating to the listener, but thats a separate issue, Dhawan notes. There is really no evidence that it causes any damage.3 As you may imagine, noisy joints can be of concern if the sounds are unusual or they are accompanied by acute pain and swelling. Some of the more serious joint conditions that may be indicated by...

    Neurotoxicity induced by Fluoride in Rat Cerebral Cortex Fluoride Action Network

    In cerebral cortex of the rats, treated with 100 ppm of sodium fluoride, there was disorganization of granular cell layer. The granule cells were accumulated in the form of clumps. Some pyramidal neurons showed chromatolysis (Fig. 2) and were shrunken with vacuolation around them (Fig. 4). The nuclei of some pyramidal neurons were eccentric in neuroplasm and others were showing necrosis. Some granule cells were swollen in shape and size (Fig. 5).

    In rats treated with 200 ppm of sodium fluoride, the blood capillaries were constricted with narrow lumen and perivascular empty spaces were observed in the cerebral cortex.

    Some glial cells appeared as darkly stained with dot like shrunken nuclei and empty spaces around them (Fig. 8).

    The neuronal degeneration and hypertrophy with perineuronal empty spaces were visible in the pyramidal neuron (Fig. 11). In cerebral cortex, some area showed necrosis with complete disintegration of neuropil accompanied by loss of glial cells (Fig.12).

    The pyramidal neurons in some area showed hyperchromatic and hypertrophic nucleus that was filling entire neuroplasm (Fig. 13). There were visible rounded fluid filled areas showing gliosis having debris of glial cells. The pyramidal neurons were distorted with spindle shape structure having elongated nucleus (Fig. 14).

    In rats treated with 300 ppm of sodium fluoride, cerebral cortex contained the glial cells that were small, deeply stained and dot like structure with vacuolated areas around them (Fig. 15). The neuropil showed degeneration in the form of spiral structure surrounded by microglial cells (Fig. 16). At some locations eosinophilic neurons were visible in neuropil. Area of neuroplasm of some neuron was covered by darkly stained swollen large sized nucleus. Clear halos were visible around some neurons (Fig. 17). A few neurons exhibited degeneration at some locations in neuropil (Fig. 18). In some pyramidal neurons distorted nuclei were shifted to periphery. Chromatolysis visible in some granule cells (Fig. 19).

    The combination of pomegranate juice and tolbutamide exhibited profound protection compared to tolbutamide alone against diabetic complications. GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Integr Med Res. 2017 Dec ;6(4):354-360. Epub 2017 Aug 1. PMID: 29296562 Abstract Title:  The potential for interaction of tolbutamide with pomegranate juice against diabetic induced complications in rats. Abstract:  Background: Pomegranate can inhibit cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C9 activity, which is largely responsible for the metabolism of sulfonylureas. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interaction of pomegranate and tolbutamide (TOL) against diabetic-induced complications.Methods: Diabetes was induced via administration of alloxan (150 mg/kg, intraperitoneally). Rats (n = 8) were treated with pomegranate juice (PJ) [3 mL/animal, per os (p.o.)], TOL (20 mg/kg, p.o.), and their combination for 4 weeks. Twenty-four hours after the last treatment, the pharmacodynamic interaction of PJ and TOL was evaluated by antinociceptive activity, electrocardiographic parameters, serum glucose, biomarkers, and lipid profile values. The influence of PJ on the pharmacokinetics of TOL was studied using the high performance liquid chromatography method.Results: The combination of PJ and TOL resulted in a significant improvement against diabetic complications compared to the group treated with TOL alone. The combination group was found to be the best protective group by significant improvement of antinociceptive activity, restoration of electrocardiographic parameters, serum glucose, biomarkers, and lipid profile compared to the group treated with TOL alone. Results of the pharmacokinetic study revealed that PJ increases bioavailability and half-life, along with a decrease in clearance and elimination rate of TOL.Conclusion: From this study, it can be concluded that the combination of PJ and TOL exhibited profound protection compared to TOL alone against diabetic complications. The findings of pharmacokinetic interaction justified the results of pharmacodynamic interaction.

    Pomegranate juice supplementation significantly decreased the incidence of lung cancer. GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2017 ;2017:6063201. Epub 2017 Nov 30. PMID: 29333211 Abstract Title:  Pomegranate Juice Prevents the Formation of Lung Nodules Secondary to Chronic Cigarette Smoke Exposure in an Animal Model. Abstract:  Background: Cigarette smoke (CS) induces an oxidative stress, DNA damage, and lung cancer. Pomegranate juice (PJ) possess potent antioxidant activity attributed to its polyphenols. We investigated whether PJ supplementation would prevent the formation of lung nodules, attenuate mitotic activity, and reduce hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) expression secondary to CS exposure in an animal model.Methods: Mice were divided into: Control group, CS group, CS+PJ group, and PJ-only group. CS and CS+PJ were exposed to CS, 5 days per week, for a total of 5 months. Animals were then housed for additional four months. CS+PJ and PJ groups received PJ throughout the experiment period while others received placebo. At the end of the experiment, the incidence of lung nodules was assessed by (1) histological analysis, (2) mitotic activity [measurement of PHH3 antibodies], and (3) measurement of HIF-1 expression.Results: The incidence of lung nodules was significantly increased in CS. CS exposure significantly increased PHH3 and HIF-1 expression. PJ supplementation attenuated the formation of lung nodules and reduced PHH3 and HIF-1 expression.Conclusion: PJ supplementation significantly decreased the incidence of lung cancer, secondary to CS, prevented the formation of lung nodules, and reduced mitotic activity and HIF-1 expression in an animal model.

    Long-term rotating night-shift work was associated with a higher risk of breast cancer. GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Am J Epidemiol. 2017 Sep 1 ;186(5):532-540. PMID: 28541391 Abstract Title:  Rotating Night-Shift Work and the Risk of Breast Cancer in the Nurses' Health Studies. Abstract:  In 2007, the International Agency for Research on Cancer declared shift work that involved circadian disruption to be a"probable"carcinogen (group 2A), noting that human evidence was limited. Using data from 2 prospective cohort studies, the Nurses' Health Study (1988-2012; n = 78,516) and Nurses' Health Study II (1989-2013; n = 114,559), we examined associations between rotating night-shift work and breast cancer risk. In the 2 cohorts, there were a total of 9,541 incident invasive breast malignancies and 24 years of follow-up. In the Nurses' Health Study, women with 30 years or more of shift work did not have a higher risk of breast cancer (hazard ratio (HR) = 0.95, 95% confidence interval (95% CI): 0.77, 1.17; P for trend = 0.63) compared with those who never did shift work, although follow-up occurred primarily after retirement from shift work. Among participants in the Nurses' Health Study II, who were younger than participants in the other cohort, the risk of breast cancer was significantly higher in women with 20 years or more of shift work at baseline, reflecting young-adult exposure (HR = 2.15, 95% CI: 1.23, 3.73; P for trend = 0.23), and was marginally significantly higher for women with 20 years or more of cumulative shift work when we used updated exposure information (HR = 1.40, 95% CI: 1.00, 1.97; P for trend = 0.74). In conclusion, long-term rotating night-shift work was associated with a higher risk of breast cancer, particularly among women who performed shift work during young adulthood. Further studies should explore the role of shift work timing on breast cancer risk.

    Neonatal exposure to bisphenol A alters the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in female rats. GreenMedInfo

    PMID:  Toxicol Lett. 2018 Jan 2 ;285:81-86. Epub 2018 Jan 2. PMID: 29305326 Abstract Title:  Neonatal exposure to bisphenol A alters the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in female rats. Abstract:  Bisphenol A (BPA) is a component of polycarbonate plastics, epoxy resins and polystyrene found in many common products. Several reports revealed potent in vivo and in vitro effects. In this study we analyzed the effects of the exposure to BPA in the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in female rats, both in vivo and in vitro. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were injected sc from postnatal day 1 (PND1) to PND10 with BPA: 500g 50l-1 oil (B500), or 50g 50l-1 (B50), or 5g 50l-1 (B5). Controls were injected with 50l vehicle during the same period. Neonatal exposure to BPA did not modify TSH levels in PND13 females, but it increased them in adults in estrus. Serum T4 was lower in B5 and B500 with regards to Control, whereas no difference was seen in T3. No significant differences were observed in TRH, TSH and TRH receptor expression between groups. TSH release from PPC obtained from adults in estrus was also higher in B50 with regard to Control. In vitro 24h pre-treatment with BPA or E2 increased basal TSH as well as prolactin release. On the other hand, both BPA and E2 lowered the response to TRH. The results presented here show that the neonatal exposure to BPA alters the hypothalamic pituitary-thyroid axis in adult rats in estrus, possibly with effects on the pituitaryand thyroid. They also show that BPA alters TSH release from rat PPC through direct actions on the pituitary.

PMID: 29322544 Abstract Title:  Role of bisphenol A as environmental factor in the promotion of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: in vitro and clinical study. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Bisphenol A is an endocrine disrupting chemical associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), cardiovascular disease and liver enzyme abnormalities.AIM: To evaluate bisphenol A plasma and urine levels in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) patients compared to healthy subjects. Furthermore, we evaluated, in human HepG2 cells, the effects of exposure to different concentrations of bisphenol A on both oxidative stress induction and cell proliferation.METHODS: We enrolled 60 patients with histological diagnosis of NAFLD with or without T2DM and sixty healthy subjects. In vitro, the proliferation of bisphenol A-exposed HepG2 cells at two different concentrations (0.025 and 0.05 M) was evaluated, both at high (H-HepG2) and at low (L-HepG2) glucose concentrations for 48 h.
