FDA approved drugs - are they really safer than alternative medicines? - Tracey Planinz - 06-26-2009 - HealingNews - The anti-alternative medicine camp is at it again, with new headlines popping up today referring to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) as "unorthodox" and "mystical mumbo jumbo". The implication is that CAM therapies are not only unorthodox and unapproved, but also dangerous.

AP photo MA GhoshShining light on SPF and sunscreens - Kim Chartrand - June 22, 2009 - Examiner - ...by blocking UV rays, sunscreens limit the amount of vitamin D we can manufacture, and low levels are implicated in cancer (including skin) heart disease and perhaps Alzheimer’s among other diseases. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: The previous article addresses a real challenge. Too much sun can damage us when we are not protected, yet these same rays can also be beneficial when getting a proper amount. I have found carrots to help, especially the juice, as it is a natural source of carotene, great for the skin. If one drinks straight carrot juice, their skin will take on an orange patina, that some doctors might mis-diagnose as liver problems, yet it does protect one from the sun. Mix carrot juice with beets / celery, and you get a deeper "copper" skin patina. As written in article, avoid "conventional" sun blocks and use ones with natural plant source ingredients without the chemicals.

Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: There is just too much evidence that chemotherapy often causes more harm than good, and basically does not work in a large percentage of cases. A clear viable case can be made for the use of holistic and natural healing modalities that often work better, if we as a society can counter to intense lobbying efforts of pharmaceutical giants and the standard AMA mandate.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Associated Press [AP], along with other major media have been reporting that [what they call] "complimentary / alternative" medicine practice does not work. The previous articles address this, with a good expanation WHY natural remedies work, and why we NEED TO TAKE ACTION NOW so "they" do not take our rights to natural health away. Right now, we cannot get funding through Medicare and most insurance plans, unless the AMA approved MD puts their "stamp of approval" on it. Why? Simply because Pharmaceutical Companies cannot get a patent on herbs, so they make chemicals from the otherwise "natural sources" so they can make profit.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Every day it is a challenge to reverse the sometimes invalidated words of MDs when they tell people things like "You will die if you do not follow our program", or other variations of that statement. The truth: I know people simply following healthy nutritional guidelines, along with positive affirmation, that are living decades longer without chemotherapy, surgery, or pharmaceutical drugs.

The "cancer game" means "big money", and they are gambling that their "patients" will decide on "their" treatments, often costing $hundreds of thousands. Do you really think they would suggest a client go to some "holistic practitioner" charging much less? Maybe, if they really have a loving heart...
