    Are you fond of drinking energy drinks? Do you know that energy drinks has been found out to cause an irreversible damage to the tooth enamel and it has detrimental effects on heart contraction? An ongoing study conducted by the Radiological Society of North America or RSNA  reported that the popular energy drink which is consumed by millions of people may not only increase the heart’s contractility but it may also cause long-term health risks.

    In an annual meeting in Chicago, Dr. Jonas Dorner of the Cardiovascular Imaging Section of the University of Bonn who is currently working on the study said that up to date no one has worked on the exact effects of these energy drinks on the heart functioning.

    Dorner pointed out that there are concerns regarding the potential adverse side effects of energy drinks on the heart function especially in young adults and even in adolescents.  Dorner said that there is no or little regulation in the US market when it comes to the consumption of these products.

    In a recent study published in May to June 2012 issue of General Dentistry which is a per-reviewed Clinical Journal of the Academy of General Dentistry, the researchers found out an alarming rise in the consumption of energy and sports drink especially among adolescent population.  This is of concern because it can cause irreversible damage to the teeth especially so that these drinks have high acidity levels which may cause erosion of tooth enamel – the glossy outer covering of the tooth.

    energy-drinknb021Three Times More Caffeine

    Did you know that the caffeine levels of energy drinks are three times more than any other caffeinated drinks such as cola or coffee?  Dorner said that the known side-effects of these drinks are palpitations, increase in heart rate, and rise in blood pressure and in most severe cases it can lead to seizure or even sudden death!

    Synthetic caffeine is manufactured by the chemical industry.  It is a big business in a lot of drinks that contain the drug.

    Natural Caffeine

    Real and natural caffeine comes from different plant species.  The caffeine content found within these plants varies throughout the year.  It depends on several factors like time of the year harvested, soil and weather conditions and so on.

    Thus, the exact caffeine content is impractical and impossible to determine for labeling products found in tea or coffee. They are constantly changing the amounts. So naturally, caffeinated products will not have the exact caffeine measurement or ingredients used that are seen on the label.

    Synthetic Caffeine

    You will easily know that you are drinking synthetic caffeine when the exact measurement of caffeine is listed on the label. This is the most common and cheapest among the caffeine source.  The compounds and processes may vary among chemical companies, but overall the amounts are all disturbing!

    Fortified Caffeine

    Still this is usually synthetic which can be obtained from coffee decaffeination industry.  Although fortified caffeine is expensive and rarely used.  You can determine if it is fortified caffeine based on the label with a measurement.

    This industry uses caffeine supply with ethyl acetone, formaldehyde and methylene chloride for its removal.  Take note that there is no such thing as removing the caffeine with just using plain water.

    Drastically Higher Peak Strain

    heart-healthDorner and his team used cardiac magnetic resonance imaging or MRI to measure the potential effects of energy drink consumption on the heart function.  In the study they had 18 healthy volunteers which include 15 men and 3 women.  Their average age is 27.5 years.

    The subjects were given one cardiac MRI before they consume an energy drink containing caffeine (32 mg/100ml) and taurine (400 mg/100 ml), and another one was given after an hour of consumption.

    The second MRI showed drastically peak systolic strain rates and higher peak strain in the left ventricle of the heart.  These measurements are used to categorize the level of heart contraction or contractility. This technique is used to see how the heart receives oxygenated blood from the lung and pump it into the aorta which is then distributed throughout the body.

    Toxic Sweeteners and Preservatives

    Red Bull, Monster, Nos, Rockstar, Full Throttle and all other energy drinks contain the following toxic ingredients:

    no-artificial-sweeteners1Sucralose

    Sucralose or Splenda is a chlorocarbon or simply a chlorinated sugar.  The common chlorocarbons include methylene chloride, trichlorethelene, and carbon tetrachloride which are all deadly! Chlorine is considered as Doberman Attack Dog of Nature which is a highly excitable and ferocious atomic element that is employed as biocide in insecticide, disinfectants, bleach, hydrochloric acid and World War I poison gas!

    As the US Food and Drug Administration noted on 1998 – 11 to 27 percent of the ingested sucralose can be absorbed by the human body. A research by Roberts last 2000 mentioned that there is a research published by the sucralose manufacturer wherein 8 healthy male adults were given sucralose with 1 mg/kg amounts between 10.4% and 30.6 % of the sucralose were absorbed. More so, 1.6% to 12.2% of the sucralose were stored in the body.

    Asparteme

    A multi-potential carcinogen – aspartame which is consumed daily at 20 milligrams per kilogram of body weight that is of lower quantity compared with the maximum recommended dosage by FDA which is 50 mg/kg of body weight and European Union of 40 mg/kg.

    Studies show that aspartame increases the incidence of having malignant tumors in rats. In the females it can increase the incidence of lymphomas and leukemia as well as other cancerous cells in the urethra and pelvis.  In the males, it can specifically increase the risk of malignant tumors in the peripheral nerves.

    ACE-K

    Energy drinks contain Acesulfame-K (Potassium) which represents as one of the favorite food additives used in sweetening drink. ACE-K is approved by FDA but there are many possible problems correlated with its consumption. Although, there are many studies that confirm its safety, ACE-K is still suspected of causing benign thyroid tumors.

    In the rats the tumor development took 3 months wherein the period of consumption of the additive is between 1 to 5 %. The period is so short hence the substance is believed to contain significant carcinogenic properties.  The methylene chloride which is a solvent used to manufacture the ACE-K is the substance that is primarily responsible for its carcinogenic characteristics.

    Potassium Benzoate

    Benzoate is known to damage the important area of the DNA which is known as the powerhouse of the cell called the mitochondria.  This chemical is capable of causing severe damage to the DNA in mitochondria to the point that it can actually inactivate it.  It can literally knock it out.

    Potassium Benzoate is used as an artificial color and it is considered as carcinogenic poison used in making foods and other products that are visually appetizing and appealing.

    Potassium Phosphate

    There are a dozen of different phosphates containing food additives that are use in a hundred of processed foods. Studies have shown that among healthy adults, people with higher phosphate levels have higher mortality rates.  Phosphate causes rapid progression of specific illnesses like chronic kidney disease.  The phosphate additives has been linked to accelerated aging and increased risk of heart disease

    They also interfere with the way the body activates vitamin D.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup

    High fructose corn syrup causes increased weight gain, diabetes hypertension, and insulin resistance plus the fact that it is manufactured from the genetically modified corn.

    In the 2013 Canadian Neuroscience Meeting, the results of the conference showed that high-fructose corn syrup may cause behavioral reactions that are similar with those produce by drugs of abuse like the cocaine.

    Increased amount of HFCS consumption may cause depletion of chromium in the body which is important in helping glucose pass through the bloodstream into the cells.

    In a recent US study, half of the tested samples of the commercial high-fructose corn syrup contain mercury which was found in nearly a third of the 55 popular brand names in the food and beverage industry where HFCS is the first line or second line labeled ingredient.

    Potassium Sorbate

    The Food and Chemical Toxicology have labeled the potassium sorbate as carcinogen.  This shows positive mutation results in the mammalian cells.  Some studies have shown broad toxic and systemic effects on the non-reproductive organs of the animals.  There are no long-term studies that have been initiated on either humans or animals, so there is not enough evidence to theorize what could happen after long term use of this preservative.

    Nevertheless, based on the short-term toxic and carcinogenic effects, is this worthy to find out?

    No-Red-BullLong-Term Health Risk Still Unknown

    Dorner said that there is still a need for further studies to understand how elevated heart contractility can affect the athletic performance and a person’s daily activities.  They also need to know how long the possible effect of the drink will last.

    He also pointed out that the long-term health risks associated with energy drinks are unknown. But they advice that people especially children with cardiac arrhythmias should not consume these drinks.  There is also a need for new studies to assess the possible risk posed by energy drinks in addition with alcohol.

    The Heart Foundation has not issued any statement on this unpublished research whether heart contractility is a bad thing.

    The Radiological Society of North America is composed of 53,000 radiologists, medical physicist, radiation oncologist and other related scientist.  They publish two-peer reviewed journals on Radiology and Radio Graphics.

    For now that everyone is waiting for the outcome of the study, one thing is clear – energy drinks contain lots of chemicals that poses potential risk to your heart and overall health.  Thus, consuming high amounts of energy drinks may not be good for your

    Pneumonia usually starts out with heavy cough and chills and eventually results in accumulation of fluids in the lungs and more often than not if it gets severe patient will succumb to death.  Each year 50,000 people die of influenza and pneumonia.  Sadly, conventional medicine has not yet found an effective solution to this problem other than giving antibiotics.

    If you ask a well-studied doctor, he or she will tell you that antibiotics will not help you that much if you have a viral infection.  A stagnant lymphatic system and immune system are the probable cause of bronchial illness, and just like other diseases, it must be manage in a holistic approach.

    fluGiving flu shots may weaken the immune system and it may spread high levels of toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury.  These unwanted chemicals and metals have shown to be the cause of reproductive issues and neurological problems.

    Since flu shots are not safe and antibiotics will not completely relieve viral infection, medicine is now directed again to natural treatment method.  Good thing, there is one vitamin that has been discovered to kill pneumonia!

    In 1940’s Dr. Frederick Klenner along with other doctors documented that recommended dosage of Vitamin C has the capability to cure more than 30 different diseases including pneumonia.  Thus, pave way for the well-deserved attention to Vitamin C.  Studies show that the anti-oxidant content of Vitamin C can help boost the immune system, improve cognitive function, help in detoxification of the liver and protect the body against harmful microorganism.

    Vitamin-CVitamin C is effective in treating seasonal allergies, high blood pressure, musculoskeletal injury, gout, asthma, scurvy and the common cold among many others.

    Aside from fighting against pneumonia, this amazing vitamin can also do lots of wonders to support the natural defenses of your body without damaging the normal flora of the intestine.  Damaging the body’s normal flora to destroy the virus may cause long-term imbalance in the function of the intestine.  Therefore, not depending too much on antibiotic is good for your health.

    When Dr. Andrew Saul was interviewed by Natural News 365, the public have learned a lot on the power of Vitamin C.  The physician declared that Vitamin C healed his pneumonia in just 3 hours!  He also shared that adequate dosage of Vitamin C can help a child fully recover from the harmful effects of upper respiratory diseases in a natural way.

    Vitamin C is vital for the regeneration and overall health of the body.  You can get it from fresh leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, seaweeds, legumes and sprouted grains.  You can be creative in preparing Vitamin C rich foods, if you want to get all the health benefits that this incredible vitamin has to offer.

    You have to remember that taking Vitamin C supplement is not as optimal if you get it from fresh foods.  Indeed, the healing power of natural foods is immeasurable.  You not only enjoy its freshness, it also helps your body to have natural defenses and prevent the onset of diseases!

    Undoubtedly, there are a lot of medications that works on a short-term basis to suppress a particular symptom.  As a matter of fact, it is all that the drug can actually do because it is incapable of providing an exact solution on the underlying disease problem.  Even if the medication works, half of the impact on the patient is because of the placebo effect – or the positive message that is provided by a doctor when prescribing a treatment – this finding was based from a new study.

    Most of the medicine is based on the strongest possible evidence which is the placebo-controlled trial.  But the problem with this foundation which medicine rest is that it has no standard.

    The thing behind relying on the placebo-controlled trial is to get an assurance that the treatment is indeed effective. The researcher used it to compare study participants wherein the only difference is that they are or they are not taking the drug. Both study groups think that they are taking the drug – to protect them against the effects of other factors like expectation.

    The study participants are then allocated randomly to a drug or to a placebo – a pill may be given that the patient may mistakenly think for the active drug.

    placebo-pillsBut an interesting thing is, according to Beatrice Golomb an associate professor of Medicine at the San Diego School of Medicine at the University of California, placebo treatment has an essential problem.  She said that there is nothing which you can call to be physiologically inert.  More so, there are no regulations that concerns about what goes to placebos.

    Golomb said that what is in them is determined by the drug makers and who have vested an interest in the probable outcome.  There is no expectation that placebos composition can be disclosed.   It also rest on the readers of the study on how they will make up their own mind whether the ingredients used in the placebo might affect the way to interpret the study.

    Researchers are now starting to appreciate the immense power of the mind over the body, as further reiterated by Tor Wager who is an assistant professor of psychology at the Columbia University.

    There is an emerging idea that the placebo taps in the processes of your brain that produce a physical result that shape how your body should respond to things.  According to Wager, the brain has much control over the body that what you voluntarily known. A possible example to this is the body’s response to a perceived threat.

    Wager stressed his point through an example – he said if it is late at night, when everything seems quiet then you see someone outside near your window, your body will start to respond.  Your heart rate goes up, you start to sweat and your pupils dilate.

    The belief that there is something threatening out there produces a series of physical responses that you have only a little control.  Even if you were told to calm down and stop feeling these sensations, you just couldn’t.  As Wager pointed out, when your belief start to change and it turns out that your husband is about to come home – your physical response will actually change.

    The negative or positive effect of placebo can lead to a misleading appearance of positive or negative effects of the drug.

    The effect of placebo is a consciousness event and more specifically an event in which the matter and your consciousness interact to transform or change the disease structure into a healing flow or process. At the level of reality when this event takes place, there is not even a possibility to say that it is indeed an interaction. This is the level at which the consciousness-matter or the mind-body are not different but is considered as a “stuff” which is not committed to either condition yet it can be considered as both.

    sci-placeboStudy Details

    The researchers design an elaborate study in which 66 participant suffering from migraine headaches were assigned into two experimental groups, one in the control study and the other in placebo group.  The control group where given Maxalt, a migraine drug.  However, during the study period, when the participant had a migraine attack, they were told different information.

    For example, the subjects in the placebo group were told that they are actually taking Maxalt and in the control group they are made believed that they are actually taking a placebo drug. Sometimes the participant was also told that the pill could either be Maxalt or the placebo.

    It is interesting to note that the pain-relieving benefits of the migraine drug increase when the patients were told that they were taking an effective drug treatment for acute migraine. When the placebo pills and Maxalt tablets were switched, the patient reported a similar pain relief from the placebo pills that were labeled as Maxalt vis-à-vis from the Maxalt tablet that were labeled  as placebo.  This was the report of the study which was published last January 2014 in the Science Translational Medicine Journal.

    The result further suggests that the information that people have is important as the effects of the drug in lessening the pain, according to the researchers.

    A researcher said that in most condition, the placebo effect plays a big part on the effect of the drug.  Ted Kaptchuk, a professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School said, in the study, 50 % of the effect of the drug could be attributed to the placebo effect.

    This could equally work for almost all drugs even the vaccine.  The relevance is not associated on the drug itself but how the drug is presented to the patient.  If the patient is made believe that they are getting protection from something, the belief alone may play a big role in the effectiveness of the drug.

    Kaptchuk stressed that the more positive message you give to the patient, the more the drug works.   In this study, their message was as clear as the pharmacology of the drug.

    In simple terms, the patients may benefit from getting optimistic message from their physician which may enhance the effectiveness of a good pharmaceutical, as the researchers pointed out.

    According to Rami Burstein, a professor of anesthesia at the Harvard Medical School, when the doctors set high expectations for the patients like saying that Maxalt or other migraine drugs is more effective, there is an increased effectiveness which means shorter migraine attacks.  When there is a shorter migraine attack means that there is lesser medication that is needed.

    placebo controlPlacebo Effect Activated outside of Your Conscious Awareness

    In the online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences or PNAS, new findings have demonstrated that the placebo effect are activated outside of conscious awareness and offer an explanation for how the patient can show clinical improvement when they are about to receive treatment.  These treatments are devoid of the active ingredients or what is called therapeutic efficacy.

    Author Karin Jensen of the Department of Psychiatry and the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Program in Placebo Studies (PiPS) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at Harvard Medical School, further said that in the study, they used a new experimental design in which the placebo and nocebo or negative placebo effects rely on the brain mechanism that are not relying on the cognitive awareness.  A person can have a nocebo or placebo response even if he or she is not aware of any suggestion of anticipation of getting worse or any improvement.

    For a long time, people believed that the placebo response are related to conscious thoughts or belief and that when given a therapy or inert pill, patient gets better because they are expecting that they will be better.  In the case of nocebos, they are expected to get worse because they anticipate the worse.

    More recently, scientist recognized that humans have learned to expect either a threat or reward automatically without needing to register consciously the idea in their brains.  As the authors pointed out the neuroimaging studies of the human brain have recommended that certain structures like the amygdale and striatum can process the incoming stimuli even before it reach the conscious awareness. The result may mediate the non-conscious effects on human behavior and cognition.

    placebo-effectsBody Memories

    The effect of placebo is centered on the idea that the belief and expectation of a person drive the changes in the symptoms.  Even if they received a sham treatment or sugar pill with no effect.  Knowing that they get a placebo changes their expectations on the drug, which is expected to alter the effect of the placebo.

    People report a pain relief even when they know that the pill they are receiving is placebo than with no any treatment at all.

    Kaptchuk said that this finding contradicts the medical beliefs.  He said that in medicine, you have to think that it is a real drug for the placebo to work.  But apparently, it is the body which has memories that are an embodied awareness which operate below the level of your consciousness.

    A possible mechanism for this effect could be that your body is conditioned to react in a positive way in situation to address your health.

    Part of what goes into your brain’s interpretation is the expectation.  The response to placebo is a manipulation of the expectancy and when you change the placebo response and expectancy you will be able to find ultimately the sustained therapy for chronic pain even without medication at all.

    The words of healing and ritual activate the brain to release neurotransmitters that change the experience of the illness.  It can activate the brain center that modulates the symptoms like fatigue, nausea and pain.

    Contrary to customary belief that patients respond to placebo because they think they are getting the active drug, more finding suggest that the placebo treatment alone have a therapeutic effect that shatters the concept of functional medicine.

     

    Do you know that the pineal gland is also known as the seat of the soul? It is an endocrine gland found on your brain. It is even referred to as the “Third Eye”. Many believed that this minute gland is involved in higher levels of consciousness and acts as gateway to dimensions beyond the created reality of your brain.

    If you want to fully activate the spiritual potential and the power of the pineal gland, you must start strengthening its function through proper nutrition and detoxification. Researchers found out that the problem with most people is that they are having poor diet that is exposed to pesticides, environmental toxins like presence of fluoride in the water and chemical-laden foodstuff. These expose the body to nano-organism and more toxins than before.

    These materials form calcium cells around themselves to protect them from the immune system which resulted in the calcification of pineal gland. It is a process involving the calcium phosphate crystals build up in various parts of the body. In fact, many have a completely calcified pineal gland.

    Thus, it is just fare that you try to tap the esoteric capabilities of the pineal gland thru mediation yoga practice and using plant medicines like ayahuasca and so on. The detoxification process plays a vital role if you want to exploit your full spiritual capabilities.

    Here you can find a list of the top 8 supplements in no particular order that will help boost the function of your pineal gland. Work on its decalcification and support your journey to spiritual and personal cultivation. Some of these supplements offer similar results so it will be up to you to decide which of the following supplements work best for you.

    • Oregano Oil and Neem Extract
    • Melatonin
    • Chlorophyll-rich Super food
    • Raw Cacao
    • Iodine
    • Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
    • Boron or Borax
    • Organic Blue Ice Skate Fish Oil and Activator X (Vitamin K1/K2)
    neem
    Neem Plant

    Oregano Oil and Neem Extract

    Neem extract and oregano oil can aid in the purification process. It helps remove the existing calcification within your pineal gland aside from purifying the body systems particularly the endocrine system. Neem is popular in India and has been used in the country for thousands of year.

    In the western culture, oregano oil is traditionally used as a holistic way to purify the immune support system. In the longer run, both of the supplements acts as natural antibiotic against new calcium cells that are created by nanobacteria.

    melatonin-sleeping-aidMelatonin

    Melatonin is a hormone that pineal grand produces. It affects the circadian rhythms of the body particularly the sleep and wake cycle. Melationin is associated with visualization and relaxation, and people often take melatonin supplement as sleep aid or to overcome jet lag due to travel.

    When you are purchasing a melatonin supplement, make sure that it is plant-based and not tested on animals. It is best if you start with a small dosage first and keep in mind not to use melatonin supplement for more than three months.

    Chlorella1Chlorophyll-rich Superfoods

    Supplements like blue-green algae, wheatgrass, chlorella, and spirulina are the good examples of chlorophyll-rich superfoods. They offer similar benefits when you eat leafy green vegetables but their nutritional content is more packed even in small serving. These supplements aid in the decalcification of the pineal because of their strong detoxification properties.

    raw cacaoRaw Cacao

    Raw and organic chocolate that is in its purest form can help detoxify pineal gland because cacao has high levels of antioxidant. Cacao can also stimulate the third eye.

    iodine-rich-foodsIodine

    Nowadays, it is common to be exposed to sodium fluoride due to the fluoridation of the water system. This has resulted in the calcification of the pineal gland. Iodine, which is naturally occurring in plants like the seaweed can effectively remove the sodium fluoride via the urine.

    Sadly, the Western diet has left people deficient of this essential mineral while the human bodies need it the most. For you to prevent having calcium deficiency when you are taking iodine supplements, you need to incorporate this recommended organic foods including thyme, dill, sesame seeds, flax seed, oranges, almonds, broccoli, kale and other dried herbs. It is also suggested to use a non-GMO lecithin supplement to complement the iodine intake.

    unfiltered-apple-cider-vinegar-with-motherRaw Apple Cider Vinegar

    Raw apple cider vinegar is a natural detoxifier. It helps decalcify pineal gland because of its malic acid contents. Malic acid is a kind of organic compound that is responsible for the sour taste of the fruit.

    If taken as a supplement, it aid in the smooth function of the digestive system and helps the body to detoxify.   Apple cider vinegar has a lot of health benefits. Just make sure that the product you are using is package in a glass sealed container and it is raw.

    beetsBoron or Borax

    Boron is a mineral that can be used as an effective supplement to help remove the fluoride form the human body. Beets is a rich source of this mineral which you can eat raw, cooked or streamed. It is also has powder supplement.

    Aside from beets it is also present in dried plums. The inexpensive source of boron is borax which you can easily find in grocery stores.

    Certain-Foods-Will-Help-Rehabilitate-the-Pineal-GlandOrganic Blue Ice Skate Fish Oil and Activator X (Vitamin K1/K2)

    If you prefer to take natural supplements to decalcify your pineal gland, the organic blue ice skate fish oil is one of the most powerful options. It has a detoxifier called Activator X which was discovered by Weston Price. It combines Vitamins K1 and K2 which allows your body to remove the calcium in different locations throughout your body like the arteries and the pineal gland.

    Rather than removing the excess calcium just like what iodine does. The Activator X places it in areas where the calcium is most needed like your teeth and bones. It has been shown that it can help reverse the damage incurred by calcification which results in various diseases like osteoporosis and atherosclerosis.

    It can also help reverse the tooth decay. The recommended Activator X supplement are best taken with Vitamin D3 and A.

    Other Alternatives that Help Enhance your Pineal Gland Function

    Aside from these supplements, there are many other foods that can help decalcify and enhance the function of the pineal gland, at the same detoxify your body. These includes raw lemon juice, Chaga mushroom, garlic, Noni Juice, seaweed, hemp seeds, coconut oil, honey, bananas, watermelon, Goji berries, tamarind, and cilantro. You can also help decalcify pineal gland by eating more alkaline foods.

    Like every part of your body, pineal gland performs a vital function. You need to do your best to take care of it, so you can improve your body’s function. As small as it is, it plays a key role in maintain the balance and harmony of your body!

    For centuries, the cucumber is traditionally used in the Chinese Medicine, but this practice seems incomprehensible in the U.S.   This shadowy idea may soon be changing because of increasing number of scientific evidences that proved that the extract of sea cucumber has the potential to kill the cancer cells while boosting the immune system.

    Ethan Evers, the author of “The Eden Prescription”, mentioned that researches on sea cucumber demonstrated its powerful effect in killing liver, pancreatic, colon, skin, prostate, and breast and lung cancer cells.  The extracts are also tested if it is effective in killing glioblastoma and leukemia cells.  These promising studies may prove that there is another potential natural medicine that can be added as anti-cancer foods.

    sea cucumber greenFrondoside A – Key Compound in Sea Cucumber

    Scientist believes that the probable key compound responsible for this anti-cancer effect is frondoside A. It is a triterpenoid which is composed of diverse and organic compounds that are found in oleoresins and essential oils of plants.

    This recent study was published in Plos One, confirmed how frondoside is a powerful anti-cancer agent.  In fact, researchers found out that it can kill as much as 95% of breast cancer cells, 90% of melanoma cells, 95% of liver cancer calls and 85% to 88% of three different kinds of lung cancer.

    Benefits of Frondoside A

    eden prescriptionAuthor Ethan Evers reported that the benefits of the compound does not prevent in inducing a direct effect on programmed cell death or apoptosis.  Frondoside A can inhibit angiogenesis, which is the ability of tumors to grow newer blood vessels so it can obtain nutrients and stops the metastasis of cancer which may result to cell invasion and migration. What is more intriguing is that the frondoside A has the ability to activate the natural killer cells of the immune system to aid in attacking the cancer cells.

    This finding was proven for breast cancer but it could also probably apply to all kinds of cancers, because it actually involves the immune system and not having a direct effect on cancer cells.  This could potentially explain why this compound was very effective in reducing lung tumors in mice that it rivaled the performance of chemotherapeutic drugs.

    When this compound was introduced to mice with non-small cell lung cancer, it was found out that frondoside A can help shrink the tumors by 40% in just about 10 days! The traditional chemotherapeutic drugs can reduce the tumors by 47 percent.  But it is important to note that the risk of treatment is greater compared with the risk or side-effects of cucumber.

    lung cancerProbably because there is no documented risk factor associated with sea cucumbers.  The amount of Frondoside A needed to achieve the results was minute which is less than a milligram for an adult who weighs around 165 pounds.

    While the sea cucumber extracts are not yet currently offered as treatment for cancer particularly in the traditional doctor office.  You can still find powdered and dried sea cucumber in nearby health stores. It is packaged with a solution to arthritis and other similar conditions.

    In the era of the modern medicine, more studies are being conducted to explore the healing possibilities of traditional and alternative medicine.  Probably, people realized what the ancient people have known centuries ago!

     

    Children's vitamins

    With the rise of competition and new standards, our children are forced take on immense pressure beyond their limit. While some children are by born gifted and able to take on the pressure, most of the children continue to face hurdles in the race. This is where; their parents come up with different types of food supplements including vitamins. If you look around, you will find that there are hundreds of brands that produce and market different types of vitamins for the kids. Even though they might have positive impact on the children, in the long run, they might turn out to be really dangerous for them. It’s only because they are not all natural and some of them also contain harmful chemicals in them.

    While many parents do not hesitate to buy and give vitamin supplement to their kids, many of them aren’t aware about what they are actually giving to their children in the first place. Thanks to media and marketing, many people are tricked into buying things that are not fully aware of it. Children ‘s vitamin is one them. In a recent study among the parents who bought vitamins for their kids, didn’t know the nutritional value of drugs. But the real truth is that even if these vitamins were able to provide any benefits to their children, its cost was more severe than they had ever imagined.

    As we wanted to know more about those vitamins for children, we took the Flintstones vitamin which is considered as one of the top multivitamins in the United States. To our shock, it contained a number of GMOs or genetically-modified organisms, aluminum, aspartame, petroleum-derived artificial colors and more. If you didn’t know, these ingredients are not good for health and can be very toxic. In the below; we are going to discuss about these ingredients in more detail.

    But before we explain you about these chemicals, it is a must that we take a look on the manufacturers in the first place. Alike most other pharmaceutical companies producing children’s vitamins; they do not have a clean past record. This company was founded in 1863 and it became part of IG Farben, a German chemical industry conglomerate in 1925. Ever since the beginning, they had a number of scandals including connection with the Nazis as well. Yet they have survived and thrived in USA and become one of the most popular pharmaceuticals in the country.

    Sorbitol

    This is another common ingredient in children’s vitamins and other food products. It is actually a synthetic sugar substitute which is classified as a sugar alcohol. Higher dosage of this particular chemical is linked to gastrointestinal disturbances from abdominal pain to more serious conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. Even after that, the manufacturers continue to use this chemical in most children’s products.

    Ferrous Fumarate

    Another shocking ingredient that we found in the Flintstones vitamins from Bayer Pharmaceuticals was Ferrous Fumarate that works as an iron supplement. Although iron is a must for natural and healthy growth in children, it should come from a natural source and in a natural state. But injecting iron directly into the body or in other forms can lead to fatal consequences including death. When you take Ferrous Fumarate, it can lead to a fatal toxicity level in your body. Although Flintstone’s web site includes concern about this chemical, we do not see any attempt from the manufacturers to control its use in any way. This is really a dangerous thing as accidental overdose of iron-containing products can lead to fatal poisoning in children under the age of 6. Hence, many doctors advise parents to keep this product out of reach of children and also call a doctor or poison control centre immediately in case of accidental overdose. Studies have been conducted that show Ferrous Fumarate doesn’t even affect iron status in children (1).

    Aspartame

    It is common ingredient in most children vitamins and it’s basically a synthetic combination of the amino acids aspartic acid and I-phenylalanine. However, Aspartame is linked to damage the brain at any dose. If you didn’t know, it leaves traces of Methanol in the blood. We still can’t find out why on earth, someone would approve Aspartame as safe and why it is found in thousands of food products even in mention children’s vitamins. This ingredient is also linked to Lymphoma and Leukemia. It’s also known to convert into toxic methanol and formaldehyde in the body.  You can confirm all of these from publications of US National Library of Medicine.

    Hydrogenated Soybean Oil

    Hydrogenated Soybean Oil is semi-synthetic fatty acids that incorporate themselves into our tissues. Even though they are widely used in children’s product, they have been conjoined with   harmful health effects, from coronary artery disease to cancer and fatty liver disease. Henceforth, anything marketed to children that contain hydrogenated soybean oil is simply reckless. Yet we have found this ingredient in the most popular children’s vitamin in USA.

    Cupric Oxide

    This is another harmful ingredient in the Flintstones vitamins. It is actually used as a pigment in ceramics and also as a chemical in the production of dry cell batteries and rayon fabric. If you didn’t know, it is classified as both harmful and dangerous to the environment and well as human beings. According credible organization such as the European Union’s Dangerous Substance Directive, Cupric Oxide is considered as a perilous substance (2).

    This is indeed an alarming finding and obviously the parents won’t be happy with it. But we should take this study as a big lesson for us so that we know what we are doing in the first place. All of us including the parents must be more careful while buying anything from the selves and giving it to our children. We should never give our children anything from shelves without knowing its benefits and harms. Unless we do not want to damage our future generation, we should always try to be cautious.

    Deception, selfishness and bribery exist between the Large Pharmaceutical companies and FDA!  Greediness abounds in the authorities as they cause more than 100,000 deaths of American each year because of their approval of the questionable pharmaceutical drugs.

    In fact, Dr. Barbara Starfield mentioned in her study that was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association last July 26, 2000 that it is even a conservative estimate and she doubted if the US health system is really the best in the world?

    The figure does not even include those who are sick and needs hospitalization, those who take medications caused by the drugs side effects and those who stay for years in the rehab who suffer crippling side effects of these drugs!  It doesn’t include those side effects caused over –the-counter drugs and its prescribed counterparts.

    corrupt medical professionalsHow the Pharmaceutical Mafia Monopolize the Health System?

    The partnership scheme of the large pharmaceutical companies and FDA involves long and cruel animal testing and then using humans as their placebo control groups.  The truth is the pharmaceutical companies spend millions or billions of dollars to conduct these trials.  If the tested drug passed the series of trials, this keep the notion that the drug safe and effective for the target population and surely, FDA will approved it.

    The shocking truth is, if the big pharmaceutical companies are greedy – they will make a forged report and pay a ghostwriter to create a constructive medical journal report and the dishonest medical professionals will approved it in exchange of a large sum of money! Then these big pharmaceutical companies will then spend money to pay the corrupt FDA official for approval.

    The worst thing is – there are a number of FDA consultants that are insiders of the pharmaceutical companies.  Their careers depend on the support of the big companies and the government connections.  All these signals the worst corruption scenario that one can may even doubt to exist.

    Marcia Angell, author of the “Truth about Drug Companies” and former editor of New England Journal of Medicine, said in disgust that it is no longer possible to trust and believe on the published clinical research and rely on the judgment of authoritative medical guidelines or trusted physicians!

    money-prescriptions-3The Flaws on Pharmaceutical System Uncover!

    Even if the FDA approved a chemical drug and says that the drug is generally safe for the target population to use, when you read the instructions – this claim is probably false.  Evidence-based medicine is a stubborn assertion that accuses alternative medicine as scam and lacks scientific evidence.  But what are the criteria to be considered as scientific?

    When you conduct large scale studies you reduce the possibilities for the minor groups to be heard.  For example, a shoe company in New York City conducted a survey for the foot sizes of 10,000 children, women and men.  Then they take the average size, and created shoes on that size and then market it throughout the country.  The thing is one size doesn’t fit for all groups.

    The expense and magnitude of large scale studies rule out repeating any tests.  But the methodology of scientific research requires that the experiment can be repeated and arrive at similar results. Another important thing to point out is that the big pharmaceutical companies require good editing.

    If they found any non-effective solutions and adverse drug effects, this information are usually removed.  Even long term studies on humans are ignored. After marketing the drug and selling it in the market, the FDA will not take action to do investigative reports unless there is a sufficient large-scale casualty and lawsuits pile up!

    By that time, the pharmaceutical companies have already got their investment back!

    George Burns and actor-comedian said that the secret of acting effectively is sincerity.  If you can manage to fake it, you got your acting made. The pretentious sincerity from these corrupt authorities has allowed the Pharmaceutical mafia to promote and use their lies to deceive the public and prevent the alternative forms of healing to flourish.

    alternative_medicineWhere did the Real Medicines Go?

    Research universities are the financial beneficiaries of large scale studies.  These researchers conduct alternative methods of treating cancer which is the living proof of its safety and efficacy than what the big pharmaceutical companies has created and lost its war on cancer treatment.

    The natural healing treatment is based on scientific and investigative analysis which is then repeated consistently with actual patients and resulted in greater success with no any adverse effects.

    It is common to see the documents of alternative healers to be burned or stolen.  There are medical institutions that routinely and incorrectly test the efficacy and protocol of the alternative medicine and report that it doesn’t work or they just simply lie on its possible effectiveness.

    Smaller and alternative sources who conduct an independent study are often refused from medical journal publications. The medical journals do not make much money from these underfunded resources as compared with the glossy ads of the big pharmaceutical companies!

    These are where the profit motivated health system and media goes.  They deceptively rule the modern medicine.  The mainstream media simply complies to maintain their advertising revenue from pharmaceutical companies.

    Authorities who are blinded with power, fame, and money are the greatest weakness that institution produces that leads to its self-destruction!

    The colds and flu is here to strike again!  This is the season where seeing someone cough in the elevator is enough to cause you panic.  Having colds and flu is definitely not something that you look forward to during the cold winter season.

    cold-fx-symptons-elevatorSore muscles, headaches, nausea, body shivers and sinus congestion are just some of the symptoms of flu or colds. Nonetheless, there’s always a natural remedy to keep your body protected against this inconvenience.  There are two incredible natural supplements that have proven their effectiveness in fighting the viral infections.

    Health Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement

    Vitamin D is a tried and tested supplement.  Having optimal levels of Vitamin D is essential for overall health and vitality. In fact, this well-known supplement is known to fight various kinds of diseases including influenza A, B, C and even H1N1 viruses.

    Dr. Joseph Mercola, a proponent of alternative medicine pointed out that one of the possible causes of a person’s susceptibility to flu is caused by low levels of Vitamin D.    Furthermore, Dr. John Cannell, a physician who was responsible for taking care of criminally insane patients, observed that his ward never contracted any flu although there was a flu epidemic sweeping through the maximum security hospital in April of 2005. The main difference of his patient with other patients is that he was already giving them 2000 units of Vitamin D for several months.

    Dr. Mercola also mentioned that after the flu epidemic in 2005, an international weekly journal of Science called Nature published a study stating that vitamin D is a potent antibiotic.  It helps increase the body’s production of these proteins known as antimicrobial peptides.  These peptides are responsible for destroying the cell walls of the fungi, bacteria and viruses which includes the influenza virus.

    This is the main reason why Dr. Cannell’s patient was protected against influenza virus while the other patient and staff were affected with the flu.

    vitamin-dIn fact, Dr. Michael Holick, a professor of biophysics, physiology and medicine and also the director of General Clinical Research Center at Boston University School of Medicine, mentioned that there are roughly 1 billion people worldwide are affected with Vitamin D deficiency!

    Lack or absence of vitamin D can lead to poor absorption of dietary calcium and phosphorus. This means that only about 60 percent of phosphorus while 10 to 15 percent of calcium will be absorbed by the body. These minerals are directly related to bone density which is responsible for getting easy fractures, osteoporosis and poor muscle strength in adults – if it is deficient.

    It also plays a critical role in fetal development and growth of the children.  Vitamin and calcium deficiency prevents the deposition of calcium during the crucial stages of skeletal formation and growth.

    Research studies have shown that people who live at higher altitudes where the sun’s rays are unable to produce sufficient amounts of Vitamin D in the skin, are at high  risk of developing and dying of Hodgkin lymphoma, and various types of cancers including breast, ovarian, prostate, pancreatic and colon cancers. Dr. Holick also noted that both retrospective and prospective epidemiologic studies have linked the association between increase risk of multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, Type 1 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension with low levels of Vitamin D.

    Dr. Holicks pointed out that the present recommendation for the adequate intake of Vitamin D must be increase to around 800 to 1000 IU vitamin D3/d.  But, this recommended level cannot be obtained solely from dietary sources alone unless the person eats oily fish regularly.

    Thus, taking supplements and longer sun exposure specifically to UVB radiation are necessary to provide enough amount of vitamin D in the body.

    chlorellaMeet the Hero: Chlorella

    Chlorella is a single-celled micro-algae that grows in water.  It is a popularly known as a powerful supplement with incredible nutrient density.  This algae has been around for a very long time.

    It is also one of the few water-grown algae that are edible.  Chlorella is filled with chlorophyll.  It also contains high amounts of beta-carotene, Vitamin B, C and E, trace minerals, iron, magnesium, amino acids, beta-carotene, and carbohydrates.

    It contains higher amount of protein which is 50% more than what you can find in meat per grams of weight.  Chlorella also poses a special kind of phytonutients.  It also binds and carries toxins out of the body. The high protein content makes it an ideal staple food for people who do not eat meat.

    In fact, it is a complete food! Aside from the fact that it is fully packed with nutrients, it holds the reputation of knocking out flu.  This is because it has the ability to increase your immunoglobulin A or IgA antibody levels.

    A Japanese research study reported that when pregnant women were given chlorella pyerenoidsa supplements, they have significantly higher amount of IgA antibody concentrations in the breast milk.  This means that they were able to produce more IgA antibodies. When they evaluated the milk of the 35 Japanese women, they found out that 18 of these women, who took chlorella while they were pregnant, have higher amounts of IgA antibodies than those who did not take chlorella supplements.

    What is the importance of IgA in the body?  IgA are antibodies that are found in the breathing passages, nose, eyes, ears, digestive tract and vagina.  It has protective effects on the body surfaces that are exposed to outside sources.

    IgA antibodies are very important to stabilize the mucosal viral infections caused by the different types of influenza virus.   The virions that infect the mucosal surfaces encounter the secretory IgA antibodies that are present in the apical surface of the epithelial cells which helps neutralize the infectivity of the virus and stops it from affecting other cells in the body. In short, when influenza comes in contact with your IgA antibodies, they are neutralized immediately to stop them from spreading and replicating.

    chlorellasupllementsbenefitsbeautybecomegorgeousAre you now convinced of its health benefits?  Here are the other additional benefits of chlorella:

    • Cure for ulcers
    • Balance hormone levels for regulating cycles and relieving premenstrual syndrome
    • Help balance the digestive system to help relieve constipation and improve digestion.

Not all the varieties of cannabis offer the same effects.  But a growing number of patients have attested to the success effects of cannabis in reducing cancer even if they take it in a shorter period.

    Smoking Cannabis: Is it Therapeutic?

    Contrary to what people used to know, smoking cannabis does not help in treating the disease.  The maximum therapeutic levels of cannabis cannot be achieved through smoking.  Extracting the plant oil or eating it, is the best way to get the necessary amount of cannabinoids.

    Come to think of it, smoking cannabis entails burning or heating the plant which alters its acidity and chemical structure.  Burning or heating can change its therapeutic properties. More so, anything that is inhaled or burn can create oxidation in the body.

    Oxidation is not healthy for the body and may lead to further health issues. This is why; antioxidants are important part of a healthy diet.
