Getting rid of allergies naturally: A look at alternative options for treatment


by Frances Bloomfield, Natural News:

Is medication always necessary for allergy relief? Not quite. Although some allergies may need medicine to prevent them from worsening, others can do without. Depending on the intensity and level of discomfort brought on by allergies, you could even remedy your allergies at home.

  • Essential oils — Certain essential oils such as lavender, peppermint, and tea tree oil are good for allergies thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties. Others such as lemon do an equally good job of soothing allergy symptoms by clearing up your sinuses and lessening congestion. These oils can be used alone or together; either way, they should be diluted with a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. An important thing to keep in mind is that some essential oils can induce allergies, so be sure to test a small amount first before going all in.

Strange ‘Sonic Attacks’ Against Diplomats Reach Epic Proportions

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The bizarre “sonic attacks” against diplomats began in Cuba, but have now spread to other countries with over 200 illnesses reported. It all started in the fall of 2016 when diplomats at the United States Embassy in Cuba reported some hearing loss and mild brain damage after hearing unusual and puzzling sounds.

SHTFPlan originally detailed the symptoms experienced by US diplomats in Cuba back in September of 2017.

Scientific research finds higher doses of vitamin C result in greater beneficial health effects


by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

You may already know that vitamin C can help reduce the duration of a cold, but a new study has found that you can get stronger effects by taking far higher doses of the vitamin than most studies have examined.

Past animal studies across a variety of species have shown vitamin C’s ability to prevent and alleviate viral and bacterial infections, and this effect also carries over into humans. As one of the most common human infections, the common cold is, not surprisingly, one of the most extensively studied infections when it comes to vitamin C’s healing powers. However, most studies look at a dosage that can best be described as moderate: one gram per day. The dosage has already been proven to be effective, but researchers from the University of Helsinki wanted to find out the optimal doses and maximal effects this vitamin can have on the common cold.

Are You Fit Enough to Survive?


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

There is not one prep greater than your own body and mind.

That sounds like a broad, sweeping statement, but it’s 100% true.

If you aren’t fit – both physically and mentally – all your preps may very well be worthless. I’m not saying this to beat up on you, but to encourage you to be the best, healthiest, version of yourself. This is something I’m personally working on and I urge you to do the same.

World Health Organization Needs Its Head Examined Regarding Vaccine Adverse Events

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

If ever there were an absolutely and remarkably unbelievable health advisory that is totally off the wall, it’s the new guidelines the World Health Organization (WHO) proposes regarding vaccines adverse events occurring during post-marketing as “coincidental” with the only ‘real’ AEs and reportable ones to be those that occurred during vaccine trials!

Doesn’t everyone know how inferior vaccine trials are, while deliberately very limited in time, too?  A perfect inferior example is the Merck & Company ongoing qui tam lawsuit [1] in Philadelphia, PA federal court for Merck’s fudging the Mumps efficacy rate in its MMR vaccine for ten years. Plus, let’s not forget to add vaccine makers write those trial results. Sham medical journals add to the ever-expanding research hijinks.

A list of the most common deadly infections you are likely to contract after SHTF

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

When catastrophe strikes, survival is what’s going to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Whether it be a natural disaster like a hurricane or a more dangerous threat, preparedness can help mitigate some of the danger that lies ahead. Necessities like food, water and shelter may be your top priorities, but there is a threat that can be forgotten amid chaos: Infection. Disease can spread like wildfire in stricken communities where modern luxuries are suddenly absent.

And in a post-disaster world, disease can easily mean “death.” When access to medical supplies and other life-saving goods (like clean water and food) are limited, infections are the last things you want to have to deal with. Here are some of the most common deadly infections that may crop up in a disaster scenario (and what you can do to prevent them):

The Many Ways Lavender Is A Must For Natural Health


by Sara Tipton, Ready Nutrition:

Most of us have already heard of a few of the many benefits of lavender, but its healing properties go way beyond simple aromatherapy.  Whether it’s in the form of a tea, an essential oil, or a dried herb for food, lavender is a must for those seeking a healthy way of life naturally.

Lavender’s history can be traced back all the way to ancient Egypt. Did you know that when King Tut’s tomb was opened in 1923, there was said to be a faint scent of lavender that could still be detected after 3,000 years? The Romans also used lavender to fragrance their baths and introduced both the baths and as perfumes.

New Law Could Exempt Thousands of Genetically Engineered Foods From Labeling

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

As the U.S. Department of Agriculture works to establish a uniform national standard for labeling foods that may be genetically engineered, critics continue to call out the dangers of putting the federal government in charge of the situation. The federal government was first granted this authority in July 2016 when former President Obama signed into law a bill which amended the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 to require the Secretary of Agriculture to establish the national standard for labeling GE foods. The bill was hailed as a victory for activists, and a boost for the economy as it would help keep food costs down for low income families. Unfortunately, the bill was neither.
