The benefits of dry skin brushing

The skin plays a vital role in ridding the body of toxins and impurities. Dry skin brushing is one of the best techniques to open up the pores of the skin, and to stimulate and detoxify the lymphatic system.

The skin is the largest organ in the body, and is responsible for one-fourth of the body's detoxification each day. It also makes it one of the most important elimination organs! For this reason the skin is also known as the "3rd" kidney, with the lungs being known as the 2nd kidney.

How Himalayan salt lamps are benefcial for better sleep and mental clarity

Himalayan salt is widely recognized for its nutritional benefits and of course its rosy-pink complexion. It is an excellent replacement for average cooking and table salt as it contains much less sodium and has been found to even lower blood pressure and aid in digestion. Himalayan salt also consists of trace amounts of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium where as regular salt is almost entirely sodium-chloride crystals.

The human cost of agrotoxins. How Monsanto's glyphosate pesticide is killing Argentina

© Pablo Ernesto Piovano
The crystal boy. Lucas Techeira is 3. He was born with ichthyosis, a disease causing dry, thickened skin. His mother came in contact with glyphosate during pregnancy.
An emerging Argentinian photographer has realised a daring photo feature. Like David against Goliath, his enemies are glyphosate and the Monsanto Company.

Glyphosate, one of the world's most used herbicides, has devastating, dramatic effects on the health of people living in very close contact with it. This time, the warning does not come from environmental organisations or WHO's agencies, but from a photo feature. Pablo Ernesto Piovano is an Argentinian photographer that decided, in 2014, to report the conditions of people living and working near GM soy crops, where massive amounts of herbicide are used.

Comment: Monsanto's appalling lack of concern for either people or planet is sickening. In a sane society they would be brought to justice for what amount to crimes against humanity.


21st Century Veterans Benefits Delivery Act: Senate passes bill approving mandatory vaccinations for Veterans

Fundamentally, biological warfare is sneaky. It involves a microbial sucker punch to its intended target, often accomplished in a manner in which the aggressor can claim clean hands, while his victim may suffer or die.

Biological warfare can take a number of forms. The question—how can you get a bacteriological or toxic agent on board without the target being alerted - has been asked and answered. In addition to using humans and animals as vectors, biological warfare agents can be airborne, waterborne, foodborne or put into pharmaceuticals.

Comment: Mandatory vaccinations are coming: Medical fascism approaching fast

NVICAP (National Vaccine Information Center Advocacy Portal) was tracking 58 bills across 24 US states in 2014, ranging from increasing the childhood vaccine schedule to eliminating non-medical (personal, religious or philosophical) exemptions to introducing mandatory vaccinations for children and adults:
"Public health officials are joining with lobbyists working for pharmaceutical companies and medical trade associations to pressure state legislators to pass bills that require "vaccine education" and signatures of doctors or other state-designed health workers in order for parents to file non-medical exemptions to vaccination for their children to attend daycare or school...

"Health care workers, teachers, daycare employees and students in NINE states are targets of new legislation that proposes to force children and adults to get federally-recommended vaccines or suffer economic and other sanctions - from denial of employment and education to denial of parental rights to be informed if a minor child has received one or more vaccines for sexually transmitted diseases!"
Add veterans to the list above and as the author clearly states: "It is believed that those who refuse will, under this Bill, lose their medical benefits."


Living in a toxic world: Iodine to the rescue


Comment: The following article was published by Dr. Sircus back in 2012. It is important information considering the growing toxicity in our environment and the impacts of such toxicity on overall human health. With the crucial information Dr. Sircus presents, in addition to other doctor's research throughout the article, there is an opportunity to have a clearer understanding of the importance iodine supplementation. For more information and an in depth discussion on iodine read the following: Iodine and Potassium Iodide

Anyone who tells you to stay away from iodine is a medical idiot. Actually that statement does not cover the story of medical cruelty and the pharmaceutical terrorism that is centered on iodine phobia that is rampant in the medical world today. One of my neighbors, who has cancer, recently visited the Gerson Clinic in Mexico and came back with a protocol suggesting one drop of Lugol's a day.[1] I of course have him taking much more.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens recently wrote, "Recently Dr. Mercola surprisingly stated that the highest amount of daily iodine intake should be no more than 400 micrograms. This is only slightly higher than the FDA recommendation, which is 150-290 micrograms daily, dependent upon age, gender and life cycle. However, it is dramatically less than what some of the leading iodine medical experts suggest, as closer to, at least, 12-18 milligrams daily, approximately 45 times higher. Why this discrepancy? And how can Dr. Mercola, who is often so correct in his understanding, in my opinion, miss the mark exponentially?"


Parents refuse to give kids flu shots even though they're not anti-vaccine

© Steve White
Defiant parents, furious at the city's new mandate forcing flu vaccines on preschoolers, are plotting to buck the system.

Delay tactics, temporary home schools and a petition are following the lawsuit filed last week to halt Health Department rules requiring a flu shot or a live-virus nasal spray for children under 5 who attend city schools and day-care centers.

"I'm not anti-vaccination," said Marialaina Mezzasalma, of Staten Island. "But I don't feel anybody should tell me what to do with my children."

The regulation takes effect Dec. 31, so Mezzasalma's daughter Lexa, now 4, won't go back to her pre-K classroom after the holiday break.

Comment: Smart parents! Standing up for their children and exercising what little medical rights they have left. Schools are going to continue to push hard for enforcement, especially considering that schools with students that are not immunized face heavy fines and loss of child care permits. Sounds like profits, not science, are motivating vaccine mandates:
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), a group of individuals hand-picked by members of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), recommends which vaccines are administered to American children. Working mainly in secret, ACIP members frequently have financial links to vaccine manufacturers. Dependent on federal CDC funding, administrators of state vaccination programs follow CDC directives by influencing state legislators to mandate new vaccines. Federal vaccine funds can be denied to states that do not "vigorously enforce" mandatory vaccination laws.

Conversely, the CDC offers financial bounties to state departments of health for each "fully vaccinated" child. In a recent year, the Ohio Department of Health received $1 million in such CDC bonus payments.
  • School vaccination rates: What the CDC is not telling parents
The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) recently reported that the federal government has directed all public and private schools to publish vaccination and personal belief vaccine exemption rates, even though less than 1.7 percent of kindergarten children have any vaccine exemptions and less than 1 percent of children under 36 months old are unvaccinated.1,2,3 ...

Perhaps the CDC is pursuing higher and higher vaccination rates and gutting vaccine exemptions to try to take attention away from the chronic disease and disability epidemic sweeping through classrooms that makes it harder and harder for children to learn and be healthy.


Stressed out? This is why you crave sugar

Here's something that won't come as a surprise to anyone who has ever devoured a pint of Rocky Road after a miserable day at work: Researchers at the University of California-Davis recently found that 80 percent of people report eating more sweets when they are stressed. Their new study, published in the the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, offers a possible explanation.

Sugar, the researchers found, can diminish physiological responses normally produced in the brain and body during stressful situations. With stress levels on the rise, this could explain why more people are reaching for sweets.

Comment: As good as it may taste when you are stressed sugar is NOT your friend. It may "feel" like your friend when it comforts you (due to the beta-endorphin rush in your brain), but sugar is really your enemy.Especially considering sugar destroys your health & literally makes you stupid:
As you over-indulge on sugar and grains, your brain becomes overwhelmed by the consistently high levels of insulin and eventually shuts down its insulin signaling, leading to impairments in your thinking and memory abilities, and eventually causing permanent brain damage, among with other health issues.


Hiatal Hernia, the great mimic: Common condition that causes digestive issues, difficulty breathing, increased stress

© Kansas Medical Clinic, PA
What is a Hiatal Hernia?

When you swallow your food passes down a long tube known as the esophagus into the stomach. This tube must pass through a muscle known as the diaphragm, which is located near the bottom of your rib cage.

This opening in the diaphragm, which permits the esophagus to pass through, is regulated by a sphincter muscle (or "valve") which relaxes and opens when we swallow to permit the food to pass through the diaphragm and into the stomach.

This sphincter then closes to prevent stomach acid from coming back up into the throat. A hiatal hernia occurs when the top of the stomach rolls or slides up into this opening and becomes stuck there.

Comment: A good chiropractor or Applied Kinesiologist should be able to easily detect a hiatal hernia and also be able to correct it. Since it can pinch the vagus nerve and also causes digestive issues, having a hiatal hernia can have a significantly negative impact on a person's health by negatively impacting their stress response, increasing heart rate (potentially made worse by standing), and causing a host of other issues due to poor digestion and assimilation.

Exercises and some life changes may be necessary to prevent a recurrence.

Tips to beat the winter blues

With shorter days and fewer hours of sunlight available in autumn and winter, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) rears its unpleasant head in up to 20 percent of the American population. Characterized by moodiness, depression, cravings for simple carbohydrates, weight gain, fatigue and melancholy, the condition can range from simple "wintertime blues" to full blown incapacitation. The affliction tends to be more prominent in young people and women.

Defeating seasonal malaise

Several natural remedies are helpful in alleviating SAD. Short of traveling south every winter for a hearty dose of sunshine, the following methods offer practical solutions for curbing this distressing syndrome.


US radiation report: Week of Nov 7 - Nov 14, 2015

Good Day, this is "Your Radiation This Week." These are the recorded Radiation Highs that affected some people this week around the United States.

*Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument. All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.

The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city reporting is listed last. Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are the Top Five highest of the 30 American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM this week. I just could not overlook Washington, DC at 92 CPM subtotal Gamma and Beta for a low and 369 CPM subtotal Gamma and Beta for a High Rad reading. This is not even a low for the District. The benefits of living in Washington, DC are never ending and far surpass those of Normal men and women living in other cities, towns and metropolitan areas - even New York at 633 CPM High this week.

Only the top five (5) cities are listed and Washington, DC.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM.
  1. 2,704 CPM, 540.8 Times Normal, Denver, CO - Gamma, Beta
  2. 1,659 CPM, 331.8 Times Normal, Omaha, NE - Gamma, Beta
  3. 1,619 CPM, 323.8 Times Normal, Colorado Springs, CO - Gamma, Beta
  4. 1,496 CPM, 299.2 Times Normal, Bismark, ND - Gamma, Beta
  5. 1,451 CPM, 290.2 Times Normal, Billings, MT - Gamma, Beta
  6. 372 CPM, 41.6 Times Normal, Washington, DC. - High Gamma, Beta
  7. 92 CPM, 18.4 Times Normal, Washington, DC. Low Gamma, Beta
Highest Recorded Radioactive City in America this week
A definitely UN-familiar Leader again in the race for the Most Radioactive Weather in America this week is Denver, Colorado! Congrats to Denver as the most Radioactive City in America for this week.

Thirty (30) cities exceeded 1,000 CPM this week. Another ten (10) cities are clustered between 999 and 900 CPM. Stay Alert and take all appropriate precautions. The most prevalent isotope, Cesium 137, takes a daunting 600 years to decay to infinitesimal levels. It is not even particularly long-lived radiation. The Cesium will remain, though; we won't.

Nuclear Pulse Redo - Target Denver, Colorado.
Another nuclear pulse struck in Denver, Colorado November 13, 2015.
The rapid increase in measurable radiation had the same Rad signature as the September 30 - October 30 Rad Pulse in Champaign, Illinois reported in YRTW No 23. The governments involved know about it, of course, and have not said a word. Make of that what you will.

Comment: The Nuclear Pulse is the ongoing radiation release from nuclear facilities across the USA. All nuclear reactor facilities leak all the time. "When the EPA monitors show approximately 10% increase in radiation release, it seems that 'the graphs go sideways,' almost like they have been turned off during venting to keep the public unsuspecting." See the time-lapse animated map.

"Thousands of nuclear savvy people know about the recently unleashed nuclear terror and no one says a word. No one in authority has breathed a word about the event yet. In a nutshell, here's what happened: A powerful nuclear pulse was created somewhere in the upper Midwest and spread a radioactive wave front outward hundreds of miles across America's Heartland. The pulse was recorded with yet another Thousand Point increase at the few active and published radiation stations with an unmistakable signature."

Comment: Taking a wild guess here...perhaps the reported increases in cancer in the USA are NOT due to the recent and false demonization of meat, unless you consider the constant radiation of cows, pigs, chickens, veggies...and humans. Apparently we do not have to have a nuclear bomb go off in order to experience a nuclear "reaction."
