Patchwork of state regs on raw milk blankets the country
by Cookson Beecher
January 18, 2016
There's more than one way to skin a cat. That's especially true when looking at how states are tangling with the dilemma of how to regulate the sale of raw milk.
Raw milk is milk that hasn't been pasteurized with heat to kill pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria and campylobacter. The controversy comes because many raw-milk advocates tout it as a natural, clean product that offers a wide range of health benefits, among them preventing digestive upsets and asthma. Many also say it's a matter of food freedom - that consumers should be free to choose what they drink or eat.
How to Get Rid of Vertigo
by Dr. Axe
Have you ever experienced vertigo? If so, you probably have wondered how to get rid of vertigo so it won't become a chronic problem. Try these six secrets.
Our ability to stay balanced is maintained by several systems, including: the sensorimotor control system (which controls our senses, such as our sight and hearing), the proprioception system (responsible for touch) and the vestibular system (helps us move without falling over). The inner ears obviously help us see, but they're also an important part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space.
Popular but Dangerous: The truth about Emergen-C Packets
January 21, 2016
Is The Immune Boosting Elixir Making You Sicker With It's Synthetic Vitamins? Emergen-C® is vitamin C-based fizzy powdered drink mix that suggests it provides people with energy boost, elevated immunity response, and the benefit of overall health.

That being said, we cannot guarantee that all of our raw materials are sourced from non-GMO ingredients and do not currently have this requirement in place for our vendors."
A better approach to beating chronic fatigue
by Dr. Isaac Eliaz
February 9, 2016
While researchers and standard doctors try to understand how to treat chronic fatigue with drugs, the integrative medical community has made a ton of progress in helping patients regain their energy and quality of life naturally.
The unifying symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is persistent and debilitating physical and often mental/emotional fatigue that results in at least a 50% reduction in activity. Other symptoms and signs can include but are not limited to muscle pain, muscle weakness, mild fever, recurrent sore throat, painful lymph nodes, headaches, joint pain, sleep disturbance, depression, digestive disorders such as IBS and neurological dysfunction. Typically these symptoms are ongoing and progress over months and even years, however, some individuals experience sudden onset of multiple symptoms as well.
Raw Cacao vs Cocoa: What's The Difference?
February 14, 2016
Cacao and cocoa are kind of the same thing... They're also very different! We don't want to confuse you but we want you to discover the truth about their differences.
The studies that boast of chocolate's amazing health benefits are not referring to your average store-bought chocolate bar (damn misleading researchers). The chocolate that they're referring to is raw cacao. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cacao beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter).
Organic Meat and Milk Higher in Healthful Fatty Acids
by Kenneth Chang
February 15, 2016
Organic meat and milk differ markedly from their conventionally produced counterparts in measures of certain nutrients, a review of scientific studies reported on Tuesday.
In particular, levels of omega-3 fatty acids, beneficial for lowering the risk of heart disease, were 50 percent higher in the organic versions. "The fatty acid composition is definitely better," said Carlo Leifert, a professor of ecological agriculture at Newcastle University in England and the leader of an international team of scientists who performed the review.
The Shocking Truth About Calcium Supplements
February 27, 2016
Is Low Calcium Or An Acidic Diet The Primary Risk For Calcium Deficiency? A Recent meta-analysis of studies (Fenton et al, 2008) has found that increased acidity from the modern diet appears to increase urinary Calcium losses by at least 66mg/day.
Over 20 years this looks like a huge 480g of Calcium lost potentially from bones which contain a total of 1,150g calcium in adults. That is a third of our calcium stores. No wonder we are seeing more osteoporosis, osteopenia and reduced bone density in women and men. To understand this better, let's briefly recap the role calcium plays in our body. Most of us, I am sure, are under the impression, calcium is only important as far as our bone structure and strength goes. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Calcium is required in the body to regulate the pH of the blood. It is found in the bones because that is where it is chiefly stored. Calcium is alkaline and is used to maintain homeostasis of our blood pH. If our blood becomes too acidic our body can go into shock, acidosis and coma.
When you catch a cold, here's how to strike it out.. quickly!
March 1, 2016
You were working all day and when you arrived home, you began to notice, something's not right. Your throat feels scratchy, head a bit dizzy, and just when you are about to figure it out, you have begun sneezing. You just catch a cold.
Everywhere you turn and touch is a source of different microorganisms that are too nasty enough, they could ruin the whole week if you don't have the best countermeasure in your arsenal. The cost that ordinary cold could inflict on the entire economy is staggering...
Chemtrail Flu: Have You Got It Yet?
March 4, 2016
You're sick. Your nose is stuffy. Your body aches, You're sweaty, coughing, sneezing and you don't have enough energy to get out of bed. It's not the flu according to Dr. Len Horowitz. His opinion is not based on conspiracy theory but on conspiracy fact.
Over the past 10 years, Horowitz has become America's most controversial medical authority. A university-trained medical researcher, Horowitz, 48, charges that elements of the United States government are conspiring with major pharmaceutical companies to make large segments of the population sick. The mainstream media is reporting that hospital emergency rooms are jammed with patients suffering from a bizarre upper respiratory infection that doesn't quite seem like a virus. They are reporting that it's a "mystery" flu and that the flu vaccines are ineffective against it.
Why it's worth paying more for organic food
by Jacquie Hayes
When the going gets tough, the tough (and smart) get going to health retreats. This has been my fallback position for almost a decade now since I started searching for ways to reset in an increasingly manic life.
Organic devotees are attracted by the prospect of clean food devoid of harmful pesticides that tastes as it should and a diet built of produce that is seasonal and fresh. But unless you live in Queensland where the culture and the climate make for easy organic pickings, tracking down the good stuff can be tricky. Not to mention that organic food is still relatively expensive compared to conventional produce. Some consider it the domain only of "the rich".
