Top 9 adaptogenic herbs for stress relief and more

Natural medicine has long appreciated the benefits of herbs and food to help with health. One such example of this is adaptogenic herbs, or "adaptogens," which can positively impact one's response to stress.

As you probably know, your body is built to release the hormone cortisol when faced with stress, but elevated cortisol levels over long periods of time (aka chronic stress) can affect every physiological system in your body, including your thyroid and adrenal glands.

While most researchers and doctors agree that an approach to reduce chronic stress is many-layered, one powerful approach to naturally relieving stress as well as reducing long-term cortisol levels is by using adaptogenic herbs.

Excess deaths since 2022 primarily in vaccinated, official data suggest

© Unknown
Excess deaths since 2022 were primarily in the vaccinated, official data suggest, fueling fears that the Covid vaccines may be playing a significant role in the high excess deaths in recent years.

Data from the Office for National Statistics show that the proportion of total deaths in England among unvaccinated people dropped sharply in early 2022, even as excess deaths soared. The proportion then remained low throughout the following two years, indicating that the additional deaths during this period were concentrated in the vaccinated.

Is this why the authorities continue to resist releasing the full data on deaths by vaccination status? A cross-party group of 21 MPs and peers are the latest to write to request the data be released. Are the authorities refusing because they know the data show excess deaths predominantly in the vaccinated?

The striking effect was seen in every age group. The charts showing these results can be seen below (find the data here, table 5). The blue lines show the total deaths by month in the age group (left-hand axis) while the red lines show the proportion of deaths in the unvaccinated in the age group (right-hand axis; unvaccinated here means receiving no doses). The most striking feature on each chart is the steep drop in the red line in early 2022, which denotes a sharp and sustained drop in the proportion of deaths in the unvaccinated and a corresponding rise in the proportion in the vaccinated.


Up to HALF of excess deaths in US nursing homes were due to lockdowns and 'mitigation' measures

Up to half the excess deaths in American nursing homes were due to the impact of lockdowns and mitigation measures on frail residents rather than the virus. That's the conclusion of epidemiologist Professor Eyal Shahar in a new analysis of a study on U.S. nursing home deaths.

The study, published in the Journal of Health Economics in 2022, found that the greater the mitigation efforts in U.S. nursing homes, the higher the death toll during the pandemic. "Those efforts not only largely failed to reduce Covid mortality, but they also added non-Covid deaths. The more they tried to mitigate, the worse the outcome was," notes Prof. Shahar.

"These results are consistent in three consecutive periods: May through September 2020, September through December 2020, and December 2020 through April 2021. Moreover, the relationship between quality ranking and mortality became stronger over time," he adds.


Did BioNTech's experimental cancer drugs promote cancer? The plot thickens

Prior to the advent of COVID-19, BioNTech, the German developer and owner of the so-called 'Pfizer' vaccine, had only ever done trials for cancer therapies. This was the company's focus, not infectious diseases. But none of those trials got very far. None of BioNTech's experimental cancer drugs had ever made it to a large-scale phase 3 clinical trial, and one of the just three phase 2 trials registered by BioNTech prior to 2020 was "prematurely ended" for unknown reasons. All in all, BioNTech had only tested its drugs on just over 400 - for the most part, extremely-ill - cancer patients.

In light of reports of surging cancer diagnoses since the rollout of the mRNA-based Covid vaccines, I wondered in a recent article whether BioNTech's trials faltered because its mRNA-based cancer therapies were in fact promoting cancerous growths rather than inhibiting or reversing them.

Well, now we have further support for this hypothesis.

'Vampire' bacteria's attraction to human blood revealed in new study

Gut bacteria
© BSIP/Universal Images Group via GettyGut bacteria pictured above under a microscope, are attracted to human blood because it contains important nutrients. Several bacteria that can cause deadly bloodstream infections in humans are attracted to an amino acid in our blood, scientists have discovered.
Vampires don't only haunt the pages of classic novels and spook us in horror movies — they're also lurking inside the human body.

In new research, scientists have found that several bacteria responsible for life-threatening bloodstream infections enter our blood because they are attracted to the liquid, or serum, within it. This is most likely because human blood contains a molecule — the amino acid L-serine — that bacteria can use as food. The researchers behind the study have dubbed this phenomenon "bacterial vampirism."

The scientists focused on three species of bacteria commonly found in the human gut that belong to the Enterobacteriaceae family, called Salmonella enterica, Escherichia coli and Citrobacter koseri. They found that all three species exhibit these vampire-like traits when exposed to serum sampled from humans.


mRNA Vaccines Aid Cancer Development, Study Finds

Vaccines batches

mRNA vaccines aid cancer development due to the use of modified mRNA designed to suppress immunity, a study in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules has found. The abstract summarises the findings (with my emphasis):
Due to the health emergency created by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease, the rapid implementation of a new vaccine technology was necessary. mRNA vaccines, being one of the cutting-edge new technologies, attracted significant interest and offered a lot of hope.

The potential of these vaccines in preventing admission to hospitals and serious illness in people with comorbidities has recently been called into question due to the vaccines' rapidly waning immunity. Mounting evidence indicates that these vaccines, like many others, do not generate sterilising immunity, leaving people vulnerable to recurrent infections.

Additionally, it has been discovered that the mRNA vaccines inhibit essential immunological pathways, thus impairing early interferon signalling. Within the framework of COVID-19 vaccination, this inhibition ensures an appropriate spike protein synthesis and a reduced immune activation.

Evidence is provided that adding 100% of N1-methyl-pseudouridine (m1Ψ) to the mRNA vaccine [as with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines] in a melanoma model stimulated cancer growth and metastasis, while non-modified mRNA vaccines induced opposite results, thus suggesting that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines could aid cancer development.

Based on this compelling evidence, we suggest that future clinical trials for cancers or infectious diseases should not use mRNA vaccines with a 100% m1Ψ modification, but rather ones with the lower percentage of m1Ψ modification to avoid immune suppression.

Comment: One can, but does not need to go deep into the archives to find others that can contextualize the above short article. Among the recently posted, several indicate the various "health benefits" of the implemented COVID policies.

Prescription drugs are the leading cause of death

Prescription Drugs Are the Leading Cause of Death
And psychiatric drugs are the third leading cause of death

Overtreatment with drugs kills many people, and the death rate is increasing. It is therefore strange that we have allowed this long-lasting drug pandemic to continue, and even more so because most of the drug deaths are easily preventable.

In 2013, I estimated that our prescription drugs are the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer,1 and in 2015, that psychiatric drugs alone are also the third leading cause of death.2 However, in the US, it is commonly stated that our drugs are "only" the fourth leading cause of death.3,4 This estimate was derived from a 1998 meta-analysis of 39 US studies where monitors recorded all adverse drug reactions that occurred while the patients were in hospital, or which were the reason for hospital admission.5

Comment: All of this, of course, is to say nothing of vaccine-related deaths.


How Ivermectin trials were designed to fail

The use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19 is an ongoing debate. The central conflict is that while many doctors have reported success in using ivermectin, some studies published in major journals suggest it is in fact ineffective.

Even as the FDA recently has been removing misinformation it posted about ivermectin, the agency has maintained its original position regarding its effectiveness, namely that there isn't evidence.

People who trust ivermectin claim the studies showing ineffectiveness are fraudulent, while people who are skeptical of its use for treating COVID-19 view it as an anti-science conspiracy theory.


Did highly toxic 'blue' vaccine batches contain Pfizer, not BioNTech, mRNA?

pfizer biontech vaccines
As discussed in my last article, BioNTech, the German owner and legal manufacturer of what is more commonly called the 'Pfizer' COVID-19 vaccine, was determined to be not just the drug's legal manufacturer but, at least in Europe, also the physical manufacturer of the mRNA, which is the active drug substance. Thus, with the financial help of the German Government, the company purchased a manufacturing facility in Marburg in autumn 2020 - before the drug had even been authorised for use. By April 2021, after being refitted for mRNA manufacturing by the German tech company Siemens, production at BioNTech's new factory in Marburg had already begun.

But careful readers will have noticed another problem with this timeline: vaccine rollout in Europe began already in December 2020 - oddly enough in its own right, just days after authorisation. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) authorised the BioNTech-Pfizer vaccine for use in the EU on December 21st; vaccine rollout officially began in Germany, for instance, on December 27th.

So, where did the mRNA in the earlier batches, the batches released between December and April, come from?

Now that puberty blockers have been banned, it's time to ban Covid vaccines for children too

Vaccinating a baby
Puberty blockers have finally been banned in the U.K. The decision came after an independent review of services for children under 18 and a sharp rise in referrals to the Gender Identity Development Service run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, which is closing at the end of March.
"We have concluded that there is not enough evidence to support the safety or clinical effectiveness of puberty-suppressing hormones" an NHS spokesperson told the Telegraph on March 12th 2024.
MPs and media personalities have come out in support of this move. But in reality, most of them have remained silent on this issue up until now. It has previously been considered too politically sensitive and controversial to comment on, with the threat of being branded a 'transphobe' or 'bigot' no doubt playing a significant role in their collective silence. Nonetheless, I have yet to meet a single person, outside of social media, who agrees that puberty blockers are either ethical or safe. Thankfully, strong and courageous voices, such as J.K. Rowling, Allison Pearson, Molly Kingsley and Jordan Peterson have been calling out the dangers of this practice from the start. They are now clearly vindicated.
