Phytomedicine: Critically ill patients with drug-resistant malaria cured using dried leaves of Artemisia annua plant
Mon, 24 Apr 2017 00:00 UTC
Details of the cases are documented in the paper "Artemisia annua dried leaf tablets treated malaria resistant to ACT and i.v. artesunate: case reports" by an international team lead by Pamela Weathers, PhD, professor of biology and biotechnology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), who has pioneered the use of dried leaves of Artemisia annua (DLA) as a malaria therapy.
"To our knowledge, this is the first report of dried-leaf Artemisia annua controlling ACT-resistant malaria in humans," the authors of the Phytomedicine paper note, adding that more comprehensive clinical trials on patients with drug-resistant malaria are warranted. "Successful treatment of all 18 ACT-resistant cases suggests that DLA should be rapidly incorporated into the antimalarial regimen for Africa," they added, "and possibly wherever else ACT resistance has emerged."

"Today, Dr. Murthy, the leader of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, was asked to resign from his duties as Surgeon General after assisting in a smooth transition into the new Trump Administration," the Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement, according to USA Today.
The US public has been forced to sit by over the recent years as Murthy shilled for Big Pharma to target children. To kick off National Infant Immunization Week in 2015, Murthy teamed up with Sesame Street and Elmo for behavior placement directed at your children. The campaign sought to convince the real decision makers when it comes to childhood and infant vaccination; the children and infants. Having undertones of plain creepiness throughout the advertisement, the Surgeon General implied to your children and Elmo that their bodies can fight germs only with the help of vaccines.

You and your loved ones likely ingested Monsanto's cancer-causing herbicide with breakfast this morning and the FDA couldn't care less.
The FDA is demonstrating their incompetence yet again by completely ignoring a critical report that shows how ubiquitous Monsanto's carcinogenic Roundup has truly become.
According to the report released by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, detectable levels of glyphosate, the chief ingredient in Roundup, were found in numerous breakfast food items. Glyphosate, which has been linked to cancer by the World Health Organization, was found in bread products, cereals and coffee creamers.

o how do you oil pull? It isn't that hard at all - all you need is some coconut oil or sesame seed oil, and you swish it around your mouth for a short time each day in order to improve oral health. Oil can cut through plaque and remove toxins safely and effectively without harming the teeth or gums.
The health benefits of oil pulling are quite astounding! Many people online have documented their success and health benefits they have received from oil pulling. Here is a list of 10 amazing benefits of oil pulling to help improve overall health:

The bacteria in our bodies equals the number of cells we have. We are like a walking biodome for trillions of these living creatures. If we don't take care of our microbiota, then our health truly suffers.
If bad bacteria take over our guts, we are likely to develop chronic gut inflammation that can lead to depression, heart disease, joint pain, obesity, more frequent colds and flu, and even neurodegenerative diseases. No thanks!
Colonizing the gut with probiotics is super important, but these live bacteria and yeasts which live in our digestive systems can be placed there by the foods we eat - and sauerkraut is one of the easiest, cheapest, most probiotic-friendly foods on the planet. We don't need to pay a small fortune to get our probiotics in pill form.

Since this was published, I've heard relatively little reaction from the medical community. So allow me to speak up: This is scandalous and tragic.
To put it in an international perspective, a 2010 British study established that among 14 developed countries surveyed, the U.S. is solidly number one in per-capita prescription drug use.
If Americans enjoyed robust health as a result of taking more prescription medications than anyone else on earth, the staggering expense might be worthwhile. But we are dead last in health outcomes among 17 developed nations surveyed by the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine. In 2013, they reported a "strikingly consistent and pervasive" pattern of worse health for all Americans, young and old, compared to the health of citizens from economically comparable nations.
Nations that take far fewer drugs than we do are healthier. Why?

However, medical students are given no training in recognizing or treating vaccine injuries, and no studies are ever conducted to find out why some children suffer from vaccines while others do not.
In this story out of the U.K., a 13 year old girl accomplishes something her doctors could not do, and that was diagnose her own life-threatening disease by researching all of the possibilities, without excluding vaccine injuries, something that apparently handicapped her doctors. She discovered that she suffered from an autoimmune disease after receiving the HPV vaccine.
Comment: Merck's former Doctor: 'Gardasil is the greatest medical scandal of all time'
There is a long list of educated people speaking out about this vaccine. This time around, it's Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck who has started to raise his voice against the HPV vaccine, along with the pharmaceutical industry as a whole. He joins a long list of experts from within the industry who have slammed the rampant manipulation and control of clinical research done by the pharmaceutical industry.
This quote is taken from an interview that happened in April of 2014, from an issue of the French magazine Principes de Santé (Health Principles):"The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless. Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all. I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine." (source) - Dr. Bernard Dalbergue

Hops lessens menopausal symptoms
Hops herb and its constituents have been found in multiple studies to have a positive effect upon menopausal symptoms. These include hot flushes (or hot flashes) and night sweats. These are termed vasomotor symptoms because they involve the ability of the blood vessels to expand and contract. The connection is that estrogen has a lot to do with regulating the blood vessels' flexibility.
One clinical study of Hops and menopause came from Belgium's Ghent University. It tested 67 menopausal women for three months. The researchers given either a Hops extract called 8-prenylnarigenin (8-PN) or a placebo. The study found that after six weeks and 12 weeks, those taking the Hops extract experienced a significant reduction in vasomotor symptoms - including hot flushes (or hot flashes) and night sweats.

But there is good news: The latest empirical evidence suggests that 10 minutes of walking or climbing a few flights of stairs is actually a more effective way to boost your energy and vigor than consuming 50 milligrams of caffeine.
This first-of-its-kind study on the energizing benefits of small doses of physical activity compared to caffeine was conducted by Patrick O'Connor and Derek Randolph from the Department of Kinesiology (Exercise Science Programs) at the University of Georgia and published in the Journal of Physiology & Behavior.

- The slow death of the art of purposeless walking
Walking is a luxury in the West. Very few people, particularly in cities, are obliged to do much of it at all. Cars, bicycles, buses, trams, and trains all beckon.
Instead, walking for any distance is usually a planned leisure activity. Or a health aid. Something to help people lose weight. Or keep their fitness. But there's something else people get from choosing to walk. A place to think.
Wordsworth was a walker. His work is inextricably bound up with tramping in the Lake District. Drinking in the stark beauty. Getting lost in his thoughts.
Charles Dickens was a walker. He could easily rack up 20 miles, often at night. You can almost smell London's atmosphere in his prose. Virginia Woolf walked for inspiration. She walked out from her home at Rodmell in the South Downs. She wandered through London's parks.
Henry David Thoreau, who was both author and naturalist, walked and walked and walked. But even he couldn't match the feat of someone like Constantin Brancusi, the sculptor who walked much of the way between his home village in Romania and Paris. Or indeed Patrick Leigh Fermor, whose walk from the Hook of Holland to Istanbul at the age of 18 inspired several volumes of travel writing. George Orwell, Thomas De Quincey, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bruce Chatwin, WG Sebald and Vladimir Nabokov are just some of the others who have written about it.
Vaccine failure: Merck being sued for shingles vaccine that causes the affliction it's supposed to prevent
The Free Thought Project

While we have everyone from attorneys to biologists, to political scientists who contribute to the Free Thought Project, none of us are doctors, so we do not make recommendations about what you and your family should do in regards to vaccination. That being said, the drug makers have an incentive for you not to see this information which means it will not be reported on in the mainstream media as their advertising dollars are tied directly to these companies. So, we find that it is our duty to spread this information and with your help sharing it, we can have a massive effect.

Vitamin C, shingles, and vaccination
Frederick Klenner, MD, who pioneered the effective use of vitamin C in a wide variety of infections and toxin exposures, published the results of his vitamin C therapy on eight patients with shingles. He gave 2,000 to 3,000 mg of vitamin C by injection every 12 hours, supplemented by 1,000 mg in fruit juice by mouth every two hours. In seven of the eight patients treated in this manner, complete pain relief was reported within two hours of the first vitamin C injection.
Vitamin C has a general virus-inactivating effect, with herpes viruses being only one of many types of virus that vitamin C has neutralized in the test tube or has eradicated in an infected person (Levy, 2002). As with the inactivation seen with other viruses mixed with vitamin C in the test tube (in vitro), two early studies were consistent with the clinical results later seen with vitamin C in herpes infections. Vitamin C inactivated herpes viruses when mixed with them in the test tube (Holden and Resnick, 1936; Holden and Molloy, 1937).
