A chiropractor's point of view on pillows and sleeping position
by Dr. Daniel Zagst
November 20, 2015
Back sleeper? Side sleeper? Stomach sleeper? All of the above? Humans can sleep in a wide variety of positions. Not one position is technically the "right" way to sleep, although there are strong arguments for some over others.
The most common sleeping positions are back, side, and stomach. There are some other contortionist positions but we will stick with these for now. With each position, the placement and type of pillow should differ. If you always sleep in the same position, you may want to try the others to see if it makes a change in your comfort level and quality of sleep.
The health benefits of blackstrap molasses
by Michael Ravensthorpe
June 4, 2015
Molasses is a thick syrup produced when the sugar cane plant is processed to make refined sugar for mass consumption.
Whereas the toxic and unhealthy refined sugar is destined for our supermarket shelves, the highly nutritious molasses - which contains all the minerals and nutrients absorbed by the plant - is more likely to be sold as livestock feed instead.
Ebola cure: WATER! Drinking a gallon of fluid daily recognized as key to survival
by Ethan A. Huff
November 22, 2014
One of the primary lessons being learned from the Ebola crisis is that fancy meds and vaccines aren't needed to cure the disease. Simple water, it turns out, is one of the best treatments for the hemorrhagic illness.
Drinking four liters, or about one gallon, of water daily is critical for surviving the infection, say scientists. And rehydration solutions containing water with added minerals like potassium and magnesium are even better for overcoming the extreme shock that occurs when the body loses too much water, such as with Ebola. "When people are infected, they get dry as a crisp really quickly," said Simon Mardel, an emergency room doctor advising the World Health Organization (WHO) on Ebola in Sierra Leone, the second-hardest-hit country besides Liberia. "Then the tragedy is that they don't want to drink."
Tattoo ink poisoning Americans
by Julie Wilson
August 22, 2014
If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you have a tattoo. After all, nearly half of the population has decided at some point in their life that it was a good idea to permanently ink an image, or special symbol, onto their skin.
But now there's a new reason to rethink getting inked. Have you ever considered exactly what tattoo ink is made of? The ink is really pigment, and most are made of metal salts; however, some are made of plastics or vegetable dyes, and if organic, they're usually plant-based.
Chiropractic adjustments shown to reverse autism in three-year old girl
by Eric L. Zielinski
May 15, 2014
A recent case study reported in the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research suggests that chiropractic adjustments can help reverse and prevent autism and issues related to the autism spectrum.
The patient was an adopted three-year-old girl who was born at 28 weeks weighing 2 pounds, 5 ounces by a woman who had a history of prior drug abuse. After two years of abnormal behavior and receiving multiple "autism" diagnoses from medical doctors, her parents decided to take her in for a thorough developmental evaluation. Five critical items were failed: social/emotional, communication, cognitive, adaptive/self-help and sensory.
USDA to mask sodiu benzoate preservative with new 'anti-microbial' label to trick consumers
Kraft Foods Global, Inc. and a food chemical company known as Kemin Food Technologies, Inc. have both propositioned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)'s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) in recent years to approve the use of propionic acid.
Kemin says its liquid propionic acid and salts solutions, collectively known as BactoCEASE, extend the shelf life of meat products, and protect them against contamination by Listeria monocytogenes. But long-term consumption of both propionic acid and sodium benzoate has been linked to causing serious side effects, including brain damage, personality disorders, gastrointestinal problems, autism, and various other neurological problems. And yet Kemin wants to have these additives specifically listed on ingredient labels as "anti-microbial" nutrients in order to fool the public into thinking they are safe.
In health and nutrition, what's old is suddenly new again
by Mike Adams
March 14, 2014
When it comes to health and nutrition, it seems like everything old is new again. Many foods or health protocols that used to be commonly enjoyed were later attacked and discredited by industry-funded "scientists" trying to sell toxic substitutes.
Before the rise of factory foods, nearly all food was local. As a result, it was also far healthier and more nutritious than today's centrally-manufactured, distributed foods (think McDonald's Chicken McNuggets). Now, thanks to the rise of the local food movement, CSAs and farmers markets, local food is popular again. It also happens to be ecologically sustainable. If humanity is to survive the next century, it must do so by learning how to produce local decentralized food.
Piers Morgan offered $1 million to survive 1,000 vaccine shots; Alex Jones and Health Ranger announce vaccine challenge on national radio
September 23, 2013
Following an hour of discussion about the toxicity of the destructive chemicals and heavy metals still used in vaccines -- a fact openly admitted by the CDC -- Jones suggested that executives of vaccine companies should be executed if found guilty...
Adams suggested that instead of a regular execution, they should simply be injected with large quantities of their own medicines -- the very same vaccines that are routinely injected into infants and children across America. This conversation soon morphed into the idea that Piers Morgan should be offered $1 million if he agrees to be injected with 1,000 vaccines. [Watch the video...]
Heal Your Pancreas With These 15 Foods That Produce Digestive Enzymes
July 29, 2017
Our pancreas is a small organ that plays a big part when it comes to our health. Pancreatitis is much more common than many people think. The most important function of the pancreas is to produce digestive juices and digestive hormones.
The pancreas also makes insulin, which controls the amount of sugar in our blood. Without insulin, we would die. The pancreas is hidden deep in the body between our other organs which makes seeing it for a visual inspection very difficult. The most common symptoms of pancreatitis include a burning pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to the back and nausea and vomiting that becomes severe when you try to eat. During an acute attack, people have a severe spike in their heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure. Chronic pancreatitis leads to low energy levels, diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, and cancer of the pancreas.
