Feds come after holistic doctor for doing chelation therapy on patients

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Ringgold doctor, Dr. Charles C. Adams, who was treating patients suffering from heavy metal poisoning and billing Medicare for their effective medical treatment is being charged by our lovely government (a.k.a. the Feds). In a Medicare fraud lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. district court in Atlanta, federal prosecutors alleged that the patients didn’t need the chelation and that the procedure could be dangerous. (What they never mentioned was that the drugs the FDA has approved of are far more dangerous.)

What It’s Really Like to Live Through a Hurricane


by DannySea, The Organic Prepper:

Editor’s Note: Please give a warm welcome to a new guest writer, DannySea. Danny is a long-time Florida resident and he shares his thoughts on what it’s really like to live through a hurricane in this fantastic article. ~ Daisy

We, as preppers of one sort or another, actually have an edge. Some of us prep for day-to-day-events and some of us prep for other one-time events,  We stock extra flashlights, batteries, water, have a generator and some gas and oil, hopefully, a good chainsaw, all with extra parts and duplicate items. As preppers like to say “Two is one, and one is none.”

And for practical purposes and to minimize this writing, we prepared for any hurricane heading our way. Even boarded up any weak openings. Trash cans were secured as well as the tank pulled from the gas grill, and all that stuff tucked wherever possible.

More toxic to humans than high fructose corn syrup, this dirty little secret ingredient is COMMON in U.S. foods (and beverages)


by S.D. Wells, Natural News:

Ever wonder why one third of all Americans get cancer at some point in their lifetime, even though hardly anyone got it a century ago? How about leukemia, do you think it’s hereditary? You would be dead wrong. A common ingredient in soft drinks and most jarred peppers and pickles causes leukemia, but no medical doctor in America has been authorized to talk about it, and most of them have no clue anyhow.

What’s the poison? It’s called sodium benzoate, and you’ll find it in popular paint stripper products, permanent spot removers, rubber cements, and lots of U.S. food products all approved by the FDA for human consumption.

Cancer industry doctors fabricate fake complaints against Dr. Farrah’s naturopathic clinic to try to smear her reputation and run her out of business

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

When a competitor offers a superior product or service and your clients start to take notice, what can you do? A smart businessperson would try to find out what is so much better about the competition and try to offer something just as outstanding.

Of course, learning the secret to others’ successes might require a fair amount of effort on your part and it could even mean questioning everything you’ve learned about your industry, so you could simply attack your competition and try to ruin their reputationinstead.

Spending time outdoors reduces the risk of 6 different ailments


by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Living close to nature and spending time outside has significant and wide-ranging health benefits — according to new research from the University of East Anglia. ‘The health benefits of the great outdoors: A systematic review and meta-analysis of green space exposure and health outcomes’ is published in the journal Environmental Research.

“Nature is fuel for the soul,” says Richard Ryan, lead author and a professor of psychology at the University of Rochester. “Often when we feel depleted we reach for a cup of coffee, but research suggests a better way to get energized is to connect with nature,” he says.

What to Eat When the Power Goes Out


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

When you’re in for some turbulent weather, do you head to the store with a list entitled, “Food for Power Outage?” Or do you already have a supply of food for power outages that you keep carefully hidden from your family? Many folks these days don’t have a way to cook when the power goes out, so that should be considered when creating your supply of the best foods for a power outage. If you don’t already have a stockpile of non-perishable food, it’s time to build one.

From Tree To Table: Tips For Fresh Maple Syrup


by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

The freshest, unprocessed, maple syrup comes directly from trees and you can tap into all of that yummy goodness yourself! Not only does maple syrup taste great, but it can be a potent natural medicine with additional health benefits as well!

The sap in trees contains water and dissolved sugars and other nutrients that travel up towards the branches, feeding the developing leaves. But surprisingly, sap is only about 2% sugar or sucrose depending on the species of tree and is also good for bone health. It has been shown to contain 16 times the potassium, 37 times the calcium, and 3.9 times the magnesium of spring water.  All 3 of these minerals are essential nutrients for optimal bone health. Just as calcium and potassium are two minerals that function in supporting optimal bone health, they also play a role in regulating blood pressure.  Sap also supports a healthy immunes system and is an antioxidant!

Last-Minute Emergency Supplies:What to Buy When the Shelves Are Almost Empty


by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Have you ever waited too long to prepare for an emergency and then you get to the store and the supplies you need are gone? The shelves are nearly bare because a horde of other locals got there first? If you need to get some last-minute emergency supplies but your original choices are gone, here’s what to buy when the shelves are almost empty.

This morning, a couple of days before the advent of Hurricane Florence, I drove to a nearby large city because I was curious to see whether others in the area were feverishly preparing and if so, what supplies were sold out first. We’re pretty well-supplied so I wasn’t there to shop. I was there to see what was missing and what last-minute emergency supplies could be substituted in their place.

The REAL Reason Bottled Water Has An Expiration Date


by Sara Tipton, Ready Nutrition:

Bottled water is a popular item to store in case of an emergency, and for good reason. It is normally readily available and water should be able to be stored forever, right?  So then why is there an expiration date on bottled water?

Of course, water doesn’t expire, but you should still check the expiration date on the bottle before you drink it. According to Live Science, there a few different reasons why water bottles come with expiration dates, and the first one, you shouldn’t worry too much about, but the second one should make you think twice.

Dave Murphy: Will Monsanto’s Loss Result In Less Poison In Our Food?


by Chris Martenson, Peak Prosperity:

An update on the situation with glyphosate

In November 2016, a very concerning report — Glyphosate: Unsafe On Any Plate — was released by The Detox Project and Food Democracy Now!, raising the alarm of the high levels of glyphosate in the US food supply and the (deliberate?) low levels of awareness of its associated health risks.

Soon after its release, we brought Dave Murphy, executive director of Food Democracy Now!, on the podcast to explain the explosive findings within this report on the world’s most-used herbicide (more commonly known by its retail brand: Roundup). We asked: Are we being poisoned in the pursuit of profit?

As happened in past decades with the alcohol and tobacco industries, the glyphosate report added compelling evidence that profits have indeed taken a priority over consumer safety in our food production system — and as public health concerns mounted, Big Ag started circling its wagons and attacking the questioners rather than embracing open scrutiny.

Researchers explore how curcumin works against cancer at an atomic level


by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

It’s no secret that turmeric offers a host of health benefits. This flavorful, vibrantly colored spice has risen to fame for its ability to fight many types of cancer, ward off inflammation, and may even be useful in the treatment of conditions like type 2 diabetes. Turmeric has definitely earned its place on the spice rack and in the medicine cabinet for good reason — but scientists are still working to uncover the mysteries of this medicinal herb. Studies have already shown that many of turmeric’s health benefits stem from one of the herb’s specialized plant compounds, named “curcumin.”
