EDITOR'S NOTE: Once again we have evidence here of drug makers attempting to supersede the effects of food in either contributing to, or helping avoid heart disease, strokes, and other coronary related illnesses. It is sad that many in society are so addicted to greasy foods and other unnecessary things contributing to illness, that the consumption is more important than getting and staying well.

Be careful when choosing a location to gather plants — avoid areas with a lot of people or animals.Healing powers of herbal medicine - TAMARA ACHTMAN - CANWEST NEWS SERVICE - MAY 31, 2009 - ...Some call them “indigenous plants.” Others call them “weeds.” In either case, what are they good for? Read more...

Doubts on Ovarian Cancer Relapse Test - ANDREW POLLACK - May 31, 2009 - New York Times - ...the new study, presented at the annual meeting here of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, found that women who started chemotherapy early based on a test result did not live longer than women who waited until symptoms appeared. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: This one finding could easily shake up the whole foundation of cancer treatment, especially with validated research suggesting chemotherapy can, if fact, lead to other cancers, relapses, as well as numerous other severe side effects.

Healing through hollywood movies Health notes: The healing powers of Hollywood - 30th May 2009 - Mailonline - Most of us watch films purely for entertainment but, according to psychotherapist and counselor Bernie Wooder, they can provide an effective resource to help us process problems.

Progress but no cure reported at major cancer conference - Liz Szabo, USA TODAY - 05-31-2009 - Study results from the world's largest cancer conference this weekend highlight both the progress and the frustrations in the fight against cancer. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: This report makes perfect sense when one realizes it excludes most non-allopathic approaches to cancer healing and research. A large number of people lead normal lives that never went through the severe and often invasive AMA mandated allopathic treatments. Lots of these people are still alive without the AMA regimen, while many others have achieved total remission by simply eating correctly, going through holistic / natural remedies, and/or are still "dealing with it" without the drugs, chemicals, and surgery. Natural remedies are mostly excluded from this conference to fight cancer with drugs.

To attain AMA approved MD certification Doctors are required to mandate numerous surgical, chemotherapy, and pharmaceutical drug "therapies" that often lead to more severe after effects. The best remedy for any illness is prevention, done by avoiding the causes.

Conflicting Data on Breast Cancer, Tamoxifen and Antidepressants Emerge - CHARLES BANKHEAD MedPage Today - May 31, 2009 - They think some popular antidepressants may keep the anti-cancer drug from working as well as it should. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: This previous article simply indicates how drug manufacturers working in conjunction with the interests of SAD [standard American diet] ways keep many "coming back for more". Government keeps putting out more subsidies into "factory farming" and pharmaceutical drug interests that have a HUGE lobbying investment in DC.

How it works: Junk foods, especially unhealthy grease, cause tumors, people take drugs causing side effects warranting more drugs, etc. etc. Where are the subsidies for organic farming, natural herbal remedies [many work better], and all the other holistic / natural ways that often reverse tumors and [what they call] carcinogenic growths without the harmful drugs?

Rife Device Marketers Convicted - Stephen Barrett, M.D. - A federal jury has found James Folsom guilty of 26 felony counts relating to his sale of unapproved medical devices. Read more...

EDITOR"S NOTE: Many have claimed to achieve "miraculous" healing results with Rife generators and other unapproved medical devices. Electronic gadgetry has helped at times, yet marketing these devices is highly illegal, and like "ozone therapy" can lead to severe consequences. Ozone can kill, and so can electronic currents when one is not careful. Be extremely wary with any therapy that is not suggested by an experienced professional health care provider.

Brain Can 'See' Objects Through Touch Tactile input plays a key role in visualization, study finds - May 28, 2009 - (HealthDay News) -- Touch alone can activate areas of the brain triggered when people look at objects, a finding that shows that these regions process information about objects using different types of sensory input, according to a new study. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: Visualization - Regarding last posting: Many of us in the holistic and natural health field have known this for years. Instead of spending $millions on tests like this, they could always ask us.

When one has proper training, I/we can actually do "touch therapy" and tell people what is going on inside the body without actually "seeing it" with our eyes.

Sometimes when a standard MD checks an MRI or x-ray, they will tell people "We found something, now we need to operate with surgery to remove it". In holistic we say "There is a blockage here. Let's break it up, and move it out with nutrition and touch therapy".

Study Finds Multitude of Bacteria on Human Skin The amount of genetic diversity surprises experts - May 28, 2009 - Ed Edelson - May 28, 2009 - (HealthDay News) --Should it worry you that there are 19 different species of bacteria living behind your ears? Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: In metaphysical research and holistic / natural healing, we don't get $millions to explain this: We call "bacteria and other micro-organisms" around our bodies as "aura". Each body has its own "glow", depending a lot on what one puts in their body. Sometimes these "auras" smell "ripe", sometimes showers help wash them away, and others are laced with artificial perfumes and / or natural fragrances, depending on the individual.

When on the body, these "creepy crawlers" are a result of what emanates from our skin, and to a greater extent what we eat and live on. That's why body odor and other challenges we all deal with at times are quite different from person to person.

Swine Flu May Be a Human Error From Vaccine Production - May 28, 2009 - The World Health Organization is investigating a claim by Australian researcher Adrian Gibbs, who collaborated on research that led to the development of Tamiflu, and said in an interview that he intends to publish a report suggesting the new strain may have accidentally evolved in eggs scientists use to grow viruses and drugmakers use to make vaccines. - from Dr. Joseph Mercola.

"...as a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good." - Alan C Nixon, PhD, former president of the American Chemical Society

EDITOR'S NOTE: Cancer is the Nation's second largest killer next to heart disease. There has been a large surge of people that prefer the holistic and natural approach to disease reversal and prevention, most likely a major cause in decline of incidence. Although many recover from the use of chemotherapy with surgery for cancer, it mostly helps to improve nutritional and lifestyle changes necessary to avoid illness and reverse symptoms.

Health Freedom and the forced chemo therapy of Daniel Hauser

"After $50 Billion spent on cancer research, the list of cancers responsive to chemotherapy is almost identical to what it was 25 years ago..." (from Questioning Chemotherapy by Ralph Moss, p81)

“Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade, yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors,” Allen Levin, MD UCSF - "The Healing of Cancer".

NOTE: Though controversial and also considered a "dangerous drug" by many, DMSO actually helped reverse this severe burn from Chemotherapy contamination, that had infected the person's hand. This only portrays what could happen to the inside of a body after standard Chemotherapy treatment.

EDITORS NOTE: I get great joy when reading scientific journals that validate what we in the holisitc / natural field consider "common sense", after decades of experience.

A classic analogy: "An Ancient Native American Indian, from the most Ancient of American Idigenous people, shared with me about our "relations" - that is "Spirit Entities" living in the clouds. I started noticing the relationship, and 15 years later Physicists, through research, had concluded that "water" is a "living thing", unless it has been "killed" by drugs, chemicals, or other means like severe pollution." - Dennis Knicely

The Daily Vitamin: Doubt About Benefits - How to interpret and good and bad news. By Harvard Health Publications - Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: I am not a big fan of vitamin pills and processed supplements. Though a big advocate for "freedom of choice" this article gives credence to a new International standard known as Codex Alimentarius already used in Europe, and spreading to America. Rights of choice need to be maintained as we look at causes and effects of drug and chemical use. My opinion: Use discretion when consuming nutritional supplements. Use of unprocessed organic foods and herbal remedies are much more natural sources when one adequately learns nutritional guidelines.

Hardened Arteries Threaten Obese, Diabetic Youth - Ed Edelson - (HealthDay News) -- An examination of the neck arteries of today's obese or diabetic young people bodes ill for their future health, researchers report. Read more...

EDITOR'S NOTE: More and more, MDs are learning to listen to us, because what we know was never in their training. REGARDING OBESITY AND DIABETIC: To treat an illness, it is always in one's interest to know the cause. It is the result of fat, crud, and grease that is lining the arteries and started hardening from a lower temperature. Have you ever noticed that most strokes are in in the winter, especially around winter solstice, when many people eat a lot fo fat-rich and greasy foods for the holidays. It is also colder, so the body generally has to work harder to "warm up" the fat / grease in clogged arteries and veins. This is why exercising is good, as it warms up this fat / grease, and hopefully gets channeled out through the liver and kidneys. Read more by clicking here...

Find out the truth about Chemotherapy - Chemotherapy is a very dangerous poison treatment, many administered with deadly radiation, that often leads to hair falling out, severe sickness, and in many cases ends with a very painful death. Many people do not recover from this "recommended approach" used by oncologists.

A report recently came out about a 10 year old girl diagnosed with Breast Cancer. There is no verifiable scientific evidence that Chemotherapy will even work for her. There is no known evidence that it even helps with breast cancer. A leading cancer research specialist says that Chemo does not work at least 80% of the time.

Another verifiable research indicates that mammograms actually cause approximately 20% of breast cancers. Who are we to believe? Click here for a very informative article about Chemotherapy. In the next few days, much more information about this will be posted, so stay tuned, and bookmark this page for further honest and well researched information. Read more...
