Remove 70% of toxins in your body with this one simple exercise


by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

Getting rid of toxins in the body sounds like a monumental task, but it’s surprisingly easy to get rid of a giant proportion of them. In fact, with one simple exercise that requires no equipment other than your body, you can get rid of as much as 70 percent of the toxins that are currently wreaking havoc on your health. Perhaps best of all, you don’t even need to be particularly athletic to pull this exercise off.

New experimental cancer cure helping some patients when chemotherapy fails


by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

There are plenty of heartbreaking stories about chemotherapy failing, but once in a while, that failure can actually have a happy ending. That’s what happened to 52-year-old Judy Perkins, who found herself a few months from death as breast cancer spread throughout her body.

She had a mastectomy and had her lymph nodes taken out when she was first diagnosed, but a decade later, her cancer had returned with a vengeance in the form of a stage 4 lump. Chemotherapy and hormonal therapy both failed to have an impact, and the cancer spread to her liver and chest. With three months left to live, she says she was grateful for the life she’d enjoyed but wanted to try an experimental treatment for the sake of her family.

10 Ways your visit to the hospital can get you killed

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:
Modern science and Western medicine can certainly save your life in certain situations, and nobody should take for granted the fact that thousands of American doctors and surgeons save lives every day in hospitals and emergency care facilities. Without hospitals, many life-threatening situations would have much worse odds of survival, especially if you are getting broken bones mended, deep wounds sewn up, having a baby, or emergency surgery for internal bleeding. The scariest part of visiting a hospital, though, is not the problem you checked in to get fixed, but ten other life-threatening “serial killers” that stalk and infect their “prey,” often killing the poorly “defended” patients, who recently checked in, but may never check out again.

We like to think U.S. hospitals are the top in the world regarding technology and safety, but what if you found out that all the advanced technology and doctor expertise in the world is useless when safety gets thrown out the window, and health hazards are coming at you right and left, crippling your immunity and threatening every organ in your body? Most people believe that a hospital is where they should go to be saved from their injuries and sicknesses, but in actuality, the odds of dying in a hospital are far greater than anyone would ever think.

Cannabidiol found to dramatically decrease frequency of epilepsy seizures


by Ethan Huff, Natural News:

Even as the pharmaceutical industry has continued to develop a steady stream of new drugs for treating epilepsy, not much has changed in terms of the overall number of drug-resistant cases of the neurological disease – suggesting that the drugs just aren’t working. This is why many people are now turning to all-natural cannabidiol instead.

A recent scientific review of cannabidiol, a major constituent of the cannabis plant that’s commonly referred to as CBD, found that this powerful cannabinoid actually works better than pharmaceuticals at keeping epilepsy under control – though how it does this is still unknown.

Researchers from the United Kingdom looked at three different papers for their review discussing the clinical uses of CBD for treating multiple variations of epilepsy. The first describes a small case series in which CBD was used to treat a rare pediatric epilepsy syndrome known as febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome, or FIRES.

CBD found in three separate studies to dramatically decrease seizure frequency

In the first study, seven children from five United States-based hospitals were given CBD as part of an investigational new drug protocol. Two of the children started taking CBD in the acute phase of the condition, which is characterized by a febrile illness followed by very frequent multi-focal seizures with refractory status epilepticus. The remaining five started taking CBD in the chronic phase, which is characterized by pharmacoresistant epilepsy marked by significant cognitive and behavioral effects.

Prior to taking CBD, all of the children had been given an average of seven anti-epileptic drugs each, as well as steroids and intravenous immunoglobulin. All but one of the child patients was assigned to adhere to either a ketogenic or modified Atkins diet, and five were given trials of multiple anesthetic agents.

After this, each of the seven was given somewhere between 15 – 25 milligrams per kilogram of CBD daily, the effects in one of the acute patients being a complete cessation of epilepticus status. The remaining five in the chronic phase saw mean decreases in seizure frequency of 91 percent after four weeks, and 65 percent after 48 weeks when compared with pre-treatment seizure frequency.

In the second study, an open-label study series looked at both children and young adults with intractable childhood onset epilepsy from 11 U.S.-based epilepsy centers. All of the patients suffered four or more seizures with a motor component monthly, and all were assigned stable doses of epilepsy drugs for a least a month prior to enrollment.

After taking CBD, the patients as a whole saw a median reduction in monthly motor seizure frequency of 36.5 percent. Nearly 40 percent of patients saw a reduction by more than 50 percent in their motor seizure frequency, while 21 percent saw a reduction by more than 70 percent in their motor seizure frequency.

In the third and final study evaluated, researchers looked specifically at patients with Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epileptic encephalopathy that usually emerges within the first year of a person’s life. This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial recruited patients from 23 epilepsy centers from across the U.S. and Europe.

Is the key to a healthy heart hidden in this ancient berry?


by Russel Davis, Natural News:

Hawthorn is known as the world’s best heart tonic. The plant has been cultivated in Europe since the Middle Ages for its cardiovascular benefits. Ancient Greeks and Native Americans have also touted the plant’s heart-healthy benefits for ages. In fact, the German panel Commission E has endorsed the plant as a good cardiovascular aid.

The plant’s main parts are valued for their therapeutic benefits. Each part of the hawthorn tree including the berries, seeds, leaves and flowers contain high levels of flavonoids and many other beneficial compounds such as tanins, phenolic acids, saponins, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, and phytonutrients that promote better overall health and internal healing.

Tai Chi Helps Breast Cancer Survivors Beat Insomnia, Depression


by Mike Barrett, Natural Society:
There are few things worse than lying awake in bed, staring at the clock, knowing your alarm is going to go off in a few hours, and you’re still wide awake. Insomnia can be a never-ending cycle of constantly worrying yourself awake, night after night. A lack of sleep can make anyone feel terrible, emotionally and physically, but it’s especially troublesome for breast cancer survivors. Tai chi, a noncompetitive martial art known for its health and relaxation benefits, may help those warriors get more rest, a study finds.

About 30{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of breast cancer survivors who have insomnia also wrestle with depression, fatigue, and a greater risk of illness. Researchers from UCLA say tai chi promotes significant improvements in sleep health in breast cancer survivors struggling to get enough shut-eye. It’s so effective, the researchers write in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, that it rivals cognitive behavioral therapy – the “gold standard” of treatment – in that the benefits endure longer than a year.

7 Ways City Prepping Is Different Than Country Prepping

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

I used to have that idyllic country lifestyle that most preppers dream about. Chickens, goats, acreage, a creek running through the backyard, and most of all, seclusion. It was wonderful. I learned so much about raising animals, keeping hungry deer out of my garden, and being self-reliant to a much larger degree.

But then life happened and that wasn’t going to work for us anymore. My precocious kid graduated homeschool at 16 and wasn’t able to follow her dreams in the state and location where we lived. Obviously, at that age, I wasn’t about to turn her loose to go to school in a different state, so we relocated.

One of nature’s best multivitamins, beets are full of nutrients

by Ralph Flores, Natural News:

People who have prepared beets know of the horror mess it can cause: It can turn a spotless kitchen into what can only be described as something close to a crime scene. Eating one can be tricky too: Beet juice can also stain your clothes. Still, this shouldn’t dissuade you from consuming this nutritionally diverse root vegetable, as multiple studies have shown that it can be used to help the body fight a variety of diseases.

Beets contain a lot of nutrients, are low in calories, and have no cholesterol or fat. The greens are edible as well, and they contain calcium, vitamin A and carotenoids, vitamin C, and iron. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 100 grams of beets contain half of the recommended daily allowance for vitamin C. Beetroots also provide an excellent source of folic acid, fiber, potassium, and manganese – and are also rich in niacin, vitamin B-6, pantothenic acid, iron, copper, magnesium, and manganese.

Last year’s flu vaccine was a total bust, yet the CDC claims it was a “grand success” – Here’s the truth of what happened

by Lance D Johnson, Natural News:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) claims that last year’s flu vaccine was a “grand success.” Newly appointed CDC director Robert R. Redfield claimed the influenza A and B vaccines were 36 percent effective over 2017-2018 flu season. He tweeted praise on the vaccinated because they “reduced risk of getting sick with the flu and having to go to the doctor by about one-third.”

Even though 36 percent effectiveness is scant and meaningless for a product that promises protection against serious disease, this number is NOT based on absolute risk reduction (ARR). Instead, the CDC bases its vaccine effectiveness numbers on something called relative risk reduction (RRR), a vague and misleading postulation that exaggerates the vaccine’s effectiveness. Their numbers are then echoed by the mainstream media to hide the real failure of the flu vaccine.

Are cancer cures being suppressed to control population?

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Revelations by the late Dr. Richard L. Day in 1969 may have been shocking at the time, but not so much now as they have started coming true.

Dr. Day was an eminent physician, a professor of pediatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in Manhattan and Medical Director of the ‘Planned Parenthood’ organization.

He was also described as an ‘insider of the Order’ referring to the ‘Order of the Barbarians’ (as those involved in an elite group committed to the ‘New World Order’ were known as at the time), which are now referred to as the globalist elite.

Obamacare’s Revenge: The IRS Will Not Process Your Tax Return Unless You Tell Them Whether You Have Health Insurance Or Not

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Yes, this is a true story.  I was completely shocked when I learned about this too, and this just underscores the importance of repealing the individual mandate immediately.  Shortly after taking office, President Trump issued an executive order which was intended to move the IRS away from enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate, but now the IRS has found a way around that executive order.  According to the official AARP website, the IRS has announced that it will not process any tax returns from individuals that are not willing to disclose whether they currently have health insurance or not…

The Internal Revenue Service won’t process individual tax returns in 2018 unless taxpayers indicate whether they have health insurance coverage or an exemption.

The move, announced last month, reverses course from this year, when the IRS said it would not require filers to indicate on 1040 tax forms whether they had health insurance. Filers were still required to have medical insurance or pay a penalty, but the IRS accepted and processed returns even if taxpayers didn’t indicate coverage status.

So what this means is that you will not get your refund until you tell the IRS if you have health insurance.

And if you don’t have health insurance and you don’t qualify for an exemption, you could be hit with a very painful financial penalty.

Of course purchasing health insurance in some parts of the country is enough of a penalty as it is.  For example, I recently wrote about a family of four in Virginia that is now facing the prospect of paying $3,000 a month for health insurance.

Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

And it also turns out that the IRS is going back and sending threatening letters to those that didn’t indicate if they were covered or not on previous tax returns.  Here is more from the AARP

IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland said it followed a review of IRS procedures.

“The IRS has determined that ‎it is more burdensome for taxpayers to allow them to file an incomplete tax return and then have to manage follow-up letters and potentially amend their return,’’ Friedland said. “Identifying omissions and requiring taxpayers to provide health coverage information at the point of filing makes it easier for the taxpayer to successfully file a tax return and minimizes related refund delays.”

In September, the IRS started sending letters to about 130,000 taxpayers who didn’t address the health care requirement on 2014 and 2015 tax returns.

So if you left that section of your tax return blank in previous years, you should be expecting a letter in the mail very soon.

At this point, many of you that are reading this article are probably starting to get very angry.  After all, didn’t President Trump sign an executive order earlier this year that was going to end enforcement of the individual mandate?

Unfortunately, that was not the case at all.  In fact, Politico is reporting that the Trump administration “is still dutifully enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate”…

The Trump administration is still dutifully enforcing Obamacare’s individual mandate, despite early signals it might undermine the unpopular linchpin of the health care law.

Weeks after the close of tax season, the IRS continues to process penalties from potentially millions of taxpayers who refused to purchase health insurance last year.

That’s even though hours after taking office on Jan. 20, President Donald Trump issued a vaguely worded executive order instructing federal agencies to waive or defer parts of Obamacare that would “impose a fiscal burden” on states, individuals or health care providers.

Enough is enough.
