Depopulation test run? 75{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of children who received vaccines in Mexican town now dead or hospitalized

by Mike Adams, via The Common Sense Show:

Despite the insidious attempts of the corporate-controlled U.S. media to censor the stories about the deadly side effects of vaccines, the truth keeps surfacing. The latest vaccine tragedy to strike has killed two babies in La Pimienta, Mexico and sent 37 more to the hospital with serious reactions to toxic vaccine additives. (Tweet this story)

“…14 children are in serious condition, 22 are stable and one is in critical condition,” the Chiapas Health Secretariat said in a statement via Latino.FoxNews.com.

What’s especially alarming is that only 52 children were vaccinated in all, meaning that 75{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of those receiving the vaccines are now either dead or hospitalized.

The vaccines were administered by the Mexican Social Security Institute, known as IMSS. The IMSS confirmed the deadly reactions occurred after children received injections of vaccines for tuberculosis, rotavirus and hepatitis B — the same viral strains targeted by vaccines routinely administered to children in the United States.

IMSS suspends vaccination pending further investigation

According to Fox News Latino, the IMSS has suspended the vaccines pending the outcome of an investigation into why so many children have been killed and hospitalized.

According to the entire mainstream media in the United States — which is 100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} controlled by corporate interests — vaccines never harm anyone and are perfectly safe to inject into children in unlimited quantities. This dangerous, inhumane “Vaccine Injury Denialism” is rampant across the corporate-controlled media, which contributes to the deaths of innocent babies and children by refusing to acknowledge the truth that vaccines kill and injure children on a regular basis.

Just recently, in fact, the UK government agreed to pay $90 million to victims of the swine flu vaccine. That vaccine caused permanent brain damage to over 800 children across Europe. The truth is that vaccines regularly harm and even kill innocent children, most likely because of the toxic chemical adjuvants and preservatives they still contain.

As the CDC openly admits, vaccines are still intentionally formulated with mercury, aluminum, MSG and formaldehyde. Some vaccines even use ingredients derived from aborted human fetal tissue. Last year, a CDC scientist blew the whistle on the CDC committing scientific fraud to cover up links between vaccines and autism in young African-American males.

Test run for depopulation via vaccines?

As globalists now fully realize, vaccines are by far the best way to cull the human population because most people can be tricked into lining up and asking for them. Thus, there’s no need to resort to all the difficulties used by the Nazis to commit genocide in World War II, involving complex logistics of railroad cars, gas chambers, construction of mass graves, prisoner tracking via IBM computing technology, and so on. (Yes, Nazi genocide and prisoner tracking was powered by early IBM computers. See IBM and the Holocaust, the strategic alliance between Nazi Germany and America’s most powerful corporation…)

As the vaccine industry has now come to realize, it’s so much easier to kill people when they voluntarily comply with the injections. Hence the aggressive media propaganda push to achieve absolute blind obedience to vaccines so that no one will ask questions when sterilization or euthanasia chemicals are used. That’s no doubt why vaccines have been routinely tested for depopulation programs via two primary methods:

# 1) Achieve covert sterilizations of targeted populations by combining sterilization chemicals with vaccines. (The “slow kill.”)

# 2) Directly kill vaccine recipients by intentionally lacing vaccines with euthanasia chemicals that cause death. (The “fast kill.”)

Method #1 has been repeatedly used throughout Africa, Mexico and South America to inflict sterilization upon targeted groups via immunization and vaccination programs. Just last year, in fact, I reported on the discovery of a covert depopulation vaccine program being run in Kenya:

Tetanus vaccines given to millions of young women in Kenya have been confirmed by laboratories to contain a sterilization chemical that causes miscarriages, reports the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, a pro-vaccine organization.

A whopping 2.3 million young girls and women are in the process of being given the vaccine, pushed by UNICEF and the World Health Organization.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

Method #2 now appears to be under way in Mexico as 75{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of those children injected with vaccines are now either dead or hospitalized.

Vaccine-induced depopulation was attempted in Mexico in 1974

As Truth Stream Media exhaustively documented, a depopulation exercise was run in Mexico in 1974, using vaccines as the cover story.

The scheme was dreamed up after the release of the National Security Study Memorandum 200 which highlighted the global population problem and urged governments to find ways to reduce the global population.

As TruthStreamMedia.com explains:

Concentration on this “problem” of how to reduce the population was planned for 13 key countries, including India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia and Colombia. Of those, the document singled out Mexico as having one of the highest (and therefore, most worrisome) growth rates of all. The document read, “Perhaps the most significant population trend from the viewpoint of the United States is the prospect that Mexico’s population will increase from 50 million in 1970 to over 130 million by the year 2000.”

To combat this problem, “medical spooks” — who were almost certainly U.S.-funded depopulation vaccine crews — began injecting women all across Mexico with anti-fertility drugs disguised as vaccines. If you doubt this, read your history. The U.S. government’s National Institutes of Health was caught red-handed running human medical experiments on prisoners in Guatemala. President Obama was even forced to publicly apologize in 2011 after the cover-up collapsed! There is nothing the Nazis did in the 1930s and 40s that the pharmaceutical industry wouldn’t be willing to repeat today under the label of “science.”

But getting back to Mexico, as the covert depopulation vaccination program spread across Mexico City in 1974, locals began to catch on to the deception, and public resistance grew. As these newspaper clippings reveal, parents began hiding their children in their own homes to avoid them being injected with sterilization chemicals at the public schools. (California, by the way, also targets children at schools in order to avoid parents having the opportunity to say “No!”)

Mexico City – Associated Press – Rumors that persons disguised as inoculation teams were giving school children shots that sterilized them forced health authorities to suspend all vaccination drives today and to post police outside Mexico City schools. Thousands of parents stormed various schools in the Mexico City area Tuesday and took their children home.

It’s also important to note that these sterilization vaccines were being administered essentially at gunpoint, as police were accompanying the vaccine crews:

Callers told newspapers and TV stations that the sterilization crews were protected by police escorts and that they included white-robed men and women “who looked like foreigners.”

This same scenario is now about to be replicated in California, by the way, where SB 277would criminalize parents of children who are not vaccinated, essentially at gunpoint.

What’s even more interesting is that the exact same arguments we hear today about vaccine skeptics — they’re punitively labeled “anti-vaxxers” or “anti-science” — were also being used in Mexico in 1974. As the following newspaper clipping shows:

How to Harvest St. John’s Wort for Medicinal Tinctures

0

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

ReadyNutriton Gals, this article is primarily for you, although Guys may be able to take a good amount from it as well.  Some of this information is specifically tailored toward women; however, parts of it are useful to consider for men and other family members, such as children and the elderly.  St. John’s Wort is an herb that many of you are familiar with and that I have written about in the past.  I’m focusing on it here, as it is really the season of the harvest for it and you should put it to good use.

The Powerful Medicinal Effects of St. John’s Wort

St. John’s is in bloom, now, and vigorously.  The dried, above-ground parts are the ones that are used.  The flowers and fresh buds are the best parts for medicinal use.  It is a perennial plant and grows throughout most of the U.S.  Keep in mind that in some states, such as Montana, it is considered a “noxious weed,” and there is a monetary fine if you grow it/cultivate it even on your own property.

St. John’s is a wound-healer with antimicrobial effects, the latter against organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus.  St. John’s is also one of the herbs that are highly effective in combatting hemorrhagic flu viruses, such as Bird Flu (Avian Flu) and Ebola virus.  It relieves a host of different symptoms and problems that women may find useful. It also aids in dulling nerve pain and pain caused by arthritis.

Depression and anxiety, so common during menopause have been found to be reduced with the use of St. John’s Wort.  It also reduces the symptoms found with PMS(Premenstrual Syndrome) in a study performed with the administration of just one 300 mg (milligram) tablet per day with standardized 900 mcg (micrograms) of Hypericum, the chemical lending its name to the scientific name for St. John’s Wort, or Hypericumperforatum.  The herb has anti-inflammatory effects as well as being useful as a sleep aid.

When used topically, as in an essential oil, it assists in minimizing muscular pain and swelling, helps to heal minor burns, bruising and is great in treating wounds that have punctures in the skin.

How to Make a Tincture of St. John’s Wort

I have long since recommended it in your “kit” as an antimicrobial and an anti-influenza aid.  The best thing to do is tincture it. Harvest St. John’s Wort when flowers are first opening. This is when they are at the medicinal prime. Keep in mind that it is best to cut off any old blooms when making a tincture because of alkaloids in the spent blooms.

Use a solution of at least 52{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} ethyl alcohol.  Grain alcohol is the best for this.

St. John’s Wort Tincture

  1. After removing the flower heads and buds (use latex gloves, or your hands and fingertips will be dyed crimson), chop them up finely and place them in a jar.  Cut plant from the top of the plant to the midsection and fill your water-alcohol solution up to cover the chopped-up flowers. Use 1 part herb to 2 parts menstruum (alcohol).
  2. Shake this vigorously 100 times, two times per day, and store it in a dark place.  Do this for two weeks.
  3. When the time has elapsed, strain out the liquid from your chopped-up plants: it will yield a beautiful tincture that is blood-crimson in color.
  4. Store in a brown bottle and label it.

You will have to determine the concentration from the strength of the mixture, and the volume you accrue.  Generally, your mixture will result in about a 250-350 mg/ml dosage of St. John’s for your tincture.

To use St. John’s Wort internally, add 1 dropper full of tincture with 4 ounces of water for up to three times a day.

You can also make an essential oil with St. John’s Wort. Simply add fresh cut St. John’s Wort to a paper bag and allow to wilt for 24 hours. Then, chop the herb as discussed above and add to a jar filled with 2 ounces of olive oil. Submerge the herb into the oil using a spoon. Allow mixture to sit for two weeks and strain plant material oil of oil. Note: Do not squeeze out the oils as this could add moisture to the essential and could diminish the shelf life of the oil.

Now is the time of the year that it is heavily in flower, and ripe to harvest.  You can also hang it in bunches and dry it out, but tincturing is the most effective method.  Remember to consult with your happy, friendly, family physician prior to using any information in this article, or the one I penned previously.  Happy gathering, and enjoy the summer sun and a harvest of St. John’s in the great outdoors!

Most cancer is caused by processed food and toxic ingredients, new study confirms

0

by Jhoanna Robinso, Natural News:

A recently published study out of Canada showed that the total amount of cancer rates that can be linked to lifestyle and environmental factors is substantial, at almost 41 percent.

According to the researchers, “We estimated summary population attributable risk estimates for 24 risk factors (smoking [both passive and active], overweight and obesity, inadequate physical activity, diet [inadequate fruit and vegetable consumption, inadequate fiber intake, excess red and processed meat consumption, salt consumption, inadequate calcium and vitamin D intake], alcohol, hormones [oral contraceptives and hormone therapy], infections [Epstein-Barr virus, hepatitis B and C viruses, human papillomavirus, Helicobacter pylori], air pollution, natural and artificial ultraviolet radiation, radon and water disinfection by-products) by combining population attributable risk estimates for each of the 24 factors that had been previously estimated.”

The researchers found out that 40.8 percent of cancer cases can be attributed to the above-mentioned 24 factors. “Tobacco smoking was responsible for the greatest cancer burden, accounting for an estimated 15.7 percent of all incident cancer cases (2,485 cases), followed by physical inactivity and excess body weight, which were responsible for an estimated 7.2 percent and 4.3 percent of incident cancer cases, respectively.”

The other factors were responsible for less than four percent of incident cancer cases each. The researchers concluded that combined with exercise and the conscious effort to avoid the environmental factors of incurring cancer, the disease is preventable. (Related: Researchers find ‘interactions’ between cancer cells and their environment.)

Also embedded in the study is the added knowledge that a big part of what is considered as a bad diet is the inclusion of too many sugars, which is common in today’s society. Nowadays, 80 percent of all packaged products contain some form of fructose.

Too much fat intake is also not good for the body. As a matter of fact, a July 2017 study that was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology showed that saturated fat intake is related to a risk of lung cancer in smokers and those who have quit smoking for the past 10 years. Charred and barbecued meats, on the other hand, can increase the risks of pancreatic and breast cancers.

But what takes the cake are processed foods. According to Hong Kong dietitian Sally Shi-Po Poon, “processed foods” can be said to represent any food that has been altered from its natural state in some way, for convenience’s sake.

Common processed foods include breakfast cereals, canned and frozen vegetables, bread, pasta, savory snacks such as crisps and biscuits, microwave or read-to-eat meals, bread, oils, processed meats such as luncheon meat and jerky, and drinks such as coffee, juice, and milk.

However, not all processed foods are unhealthy, Poon said. For instance, milk needs to be pasteurized, therefore altered from its natural state, in order to remove harmful bacteria from its constitution.

For his part, Health Designer founder and senior dietitian Vin Ip said some processed foods are not detrimental to your health, noting, “Minimally processed foods are almost identical to unprocessed foods and are therefore acceptable to include in our diet.”

What must be avoided at all costs are heavily-processed foods, for instance, deli meats like bacon, salami, and sausages, for they are high in salt, nitrites, and nitrates and are likely to cause cancer. “Eating 50 grams of processed meat every day increases one’s risk of colorectal cancer by 18 percent. That’s the equivalent of about four strips of bacon or one hot dog,” Poon said.

Researchers May Have Found A Way To Beat HIV, And It All Stems From Cows

0

by Brianna Acuesta, True Activist:

Cows may be the answer to something that’s not related to food.

The continued existence of cattle around the world can be pinned on humans’ need to consume them, whether that’s by using their milk or eating their meat. Besides this primary function, and the fact that they can rapidly eat grass, there doesn’t seem to be a huge need for cows otherwise, save for companionship. However, researchers may have just found another complex purpose for these sturdy creatures that has nothing to do with food but everything to do with health.

If you’re not familiar with HIV or are unsure why it’s so difficult to control, here’s the breakdown: the Human Immunodeficiency Virus infects a specific white blood cell that is built to attack viruses, making it not only difficult to detect the virus but nearly impossible to attack. On the off chance that a human’s immune system is able to create antibodies to defeat the virus, which has been observed before, it takes years for this to happen and by then the virus has already evolved so much that it can overcome the antibodies. As a result, the best response to HIV are bNAbs, or broadly neutralising antibodies, which can attack multiple forms of virus at once.

“From the early days of the epidemic, we have recognized that HIV is very good at evading immunity, so exceptional immune systems that naturally produce broadly neutralizing antibodies to HIV are of great interest – whether they belong to humans or cattle,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Researchers turned to cows after recognizing that a complex immune and digestive system might be the key to combatting the virus. Since cattle have a ruminant digestive system that allows grass to sit for a period of time in order to ferments, scientists knew that their systems are riddled with hostile bacteria that they deal with on a daily basis. They decided to test the animals to see if they already contained or could produce the necessary antibodies to defeat HIV and its rapidity.

For the experiment, injected 117 calves with the virus antigens and tested them regularly to see how their bodies responded. Since HIV is not natural to cattle, as it started as a virus for primates that mutated to attack human cells, their bodies would have to produce an all new response to the infection. The results were “mind-blowing,” as researchers said, as the cattle began producing bNAbs to fight the virus within weeks.

“The response blew our minds,” Dr. Devin Sok, one of the researchers, told BBC News. “It was just insane how good it looked. In humans, it takes three to five years to develop the antibodies we’re talking about. This is really important because we hadn’t been able to do it period. Who would have thought cow biology was making a significant contribution to HIV?”

Do you have the guts to fix your gut?

0

by Hesh Goldstein, Natural News:

Everywhere you look, everywhere you read, there are countless advertisements for internal health improvements.

To fix your bloating or your irritable bowel syndrome or your constipation, or your heartburn or your acid reflux or the countless other problems with you gut and your digestive system, take Mylanta or Maalox or Reglan, or Nexium, or Omeprazole, or tons of other names you can’t really pronounce.

And don’t worry if those “cure-alls” create rashes or hives or itching or difficulty breathing, or loss of appetite or muscle weakness or swelling of the mouth, lips, face and tongue or nausea or diarrhea or vomiting or slow reflexes or dizziness or confusion or depression, or agitation or a choking feeling or the hundreds of other symptoms not listed here. “Don’t worry, we have other pills to relieve those symptoms as well”.

More than 100 million Americans have digestive problems and two of the top five selling drugs in America are for digestive problems and they cost us billions and billions of dollars.

Ok, what’s the safe remedy for digestive problems?

It’s the health of your gut that determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins, allergens and microbes are kept out. In fact, the health of your gut is directly linked to the health of your whole body.

In essence, intestinal health is defined as the optimal digestion, absorption and assimilation of food.

Basically, you have bugs in your digestive tract that have a mind of their own and their job is to create an internal conglomerate that helps to digest food, regulate hormones, excrete toxins, and produce vitamins and other healing compounds to keep you healthy.

But, and there’s always a but, the ecosystem must be comprised of friendly bacteria to keep you healthy. The good guys are the lactobacillus or bifidobacteria and the bad guys are the parasites and yeasts.

But wait, there’s more: in your gut there is a one cell-thick layer that protects your entire immune system and the rest of your body.

When that protective layer gets damaged you develop allergies despite being able to digest the foods perfectly well. Then the immune system becomes overactive and introduces your body to inflammation.

It should be obvious that the gut needs to be in a condition to separate the good molecules from the bad ones to protect the immune system to its fullest capacity.

What’s cool is that the gut has a brain of its own (the enteric nervous system) that is actually wired to brain above your ears and messages travel back and forth between the two brains. When those messages are compromised so is your health.

So, what happens to all the toxins produced by your metabolism that the liver has to work overtime to deal with? All those symptoms and more listed above manifest and create more problems in your body that you can imagine.

As if that’s not enough of a nightmare, the gut has to breakdown all the food you eat into their individual components, separate the vitamins and minerals and filter them across the one cell-thick layer so it can enter your bloodstream and nourish your body.

Fixing your gut is understanding what puts it out of balance in the first place. One word does that- DIET.

The SAD (Standard American Diet), with its low-fiber, high-sugar, high-dairy, high-flesh, processed to death, excess protein eggs, high-calorie food causes all the wrong bacteria and yeast to flourish, damaging the intestinal ecosystem.

The over abundance of meds and “fixers” like acid blockers, anti-inflammatory meds, antibiotics, steroids and hormones (bovine growth hormones in over cooked and nutrient depleted in dairy) damage the gut or not let it do its job.

This assault brings about low-grade infections, gut imbalances, yeast overgrowth, and parasites. Then we add mercury through dental fillings and fish, suffer from sulfur, zinc and magnesium deficiencies and worry ourselves to death making us nothing more than stressed out zombies trying to solve our problems with more drugs, more acid-blocking meds, aspirins and whatever we are led to believe will reverse our condition. Yet is does nothing more than making us worse.

GMO scientists just created “doomsday crops” containing RNA fragments that intentionally cause mass infertility

0

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

As advocacy against “conventional” GMO crops continues to grow, it comes as no surprise that the biotech industry has been doing its best to develop a new way to modify crops. One of the top concerns about current modification techniques is the transgenic component — which allows crops to be engineered to produce different proteins that would repel pests or be toxic to insects. Understandably, many people have drawn attention to concerns about the safety of consuming such proteins. Activists have long noted that these engineered proteins used to kill insects could be toxic to humans as well, or at the very least, spark allergic reactions in some people. And it seems that GMO scientists have realized that they cannot win the fight when it comes to transgenic crops: People don’t want them.

But, unfortunately, they’ve come up with a new type of GMO crop: fragmented RNA crops. As Ralph Bock, a director at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Germany explains, “The objections to transgenic proteins involve concerns about their possible toxicity or allergenicity to humans, but with the RNA interference strategy there’s no protein that is made, just some extra RNA.” Bock also co-authored a study on the new GMO crop strategy.

The purpose of the fragmented RNA in these newly modified crops is to disable insects, by either inducing death or infertility. When pests consume crops engineered with RNA fragments, the RNA interference literally causes the insects’ essential genes to shut down.

Supposedly, this somehow makes them “safer” for the environment and less harmful to humans. However, the idea of “shutting down essential genes” is really quite alarming, leading many people to question if these RNA-engineered crops will cause infertility in humans.

When one considers the globalist depopulation agenda, the RNA interference scheme grows even darker.

For now, the researchers pioneering this disturbing effort claim that RNA fragmentation could “solve” concerns about the toxicity of pesticides, claiming this new strategy will help reduce pesticide use. Isn’t that what GMO scientists said when they first engineered Bt and Roundup Ready crops? Many GMO proponents claimed that the current generation of GMOs would help reduce pesticide use, yet studies have shown that the growing of GMO crops in the U.S. corresponds with an increase in pesticide use.

Why would anyone believe these so-called scientists now? It seems highly unlikely that GMOs will ever actually reduce pesticide use over the long haul. Nature continues to prove itself to be smarter and more adaptable than mankind’s best scientists; perhaps instead of fighting it, we should learn to cooperate with the world we live in.

Beyond that, there is the overwhelming concern that these crops will affect human health. Studies have shown that DNA fragments (and entire genes) from the food we eat can enter the human bloodstream, and that plant RNA can pass through the intestinal barrier. This fact raises substantial questions about the safety of crops engineered to produce RNA interference.

All things considered, it is well within the scope of reason to posit that these genetically engineered crops could pose an even greater threat to human health, by way of the likelihood that whatever genetic interference they cause in insects may be replicated in humans. The only “improvement” scientists are making is by engineering their crops to be more harmful in a less obvious manner. (Related: Discover the truth about genetically modified crops at GMO.news)

Top 10 edible roots to help keep you alive and healthy in a survival situation

0

by Rhonda Johansson, Natural News:

When hermit monk Brother Simon reappeared at the farmer Farrin’s market after not being seen for seven years, people thought they were seeing a ghost. After realizing that Brother Simon was, in fact, alive and well, people started asking him how he managed to survive completely off grid. “I used the knowledge of our wilderness which I learned from my father…When God created the world, He made it flourish with beautiful and edible plants,” Brother Simon said humbly. “My vow was to eat only edible roots. The past seven years have tested my understanding of my father’s lessons.”

Brother Simon then listed 10 edible roots that he personally ate to survive.

  1. Arrowroot – As the name suggests, the plant has leaves that are shaped like arrows. Arrowroots like to grow around muddy areas. They may look small, but they actually have an extensive root system. The roots can be yellowish or white (resembling a parsnip) but with constricted rings down its length. The tubers are starchy and can help people feel full longer. Before you boil the roots though, make sure to remove the scales.
  2. Cattail – More known as the small bulrush, this rhizome grows abundantly along the temperate northern hemisphere. You’ve probably seen a bunch of these plants along the edges of lakes and marshes. Most parts of the plant are edible, but Brother Simon says that the rootstock is the most nutritious and filling. He says that the rhizome can be eaten raw or boiled. The roots can even be roasted until they are black. The inside flesh is then eaten as a snack.
  3. Chicory – This plant grows quite fast, and is sometimes considered to be a weed. They are easily distinguished by their white and slightly blue flowers. Each part of the plant can be eaten, but it is recommended to boil the root before eating it. Taking chicory raw can cause some gastrointestinal issues.
  4. Dandelion – We all think of dandelions as weeds, but this backyard plant has many medicinal properties. The plant can be enjoyed in many ways; maybe you remember your own grandmother adding the flower to salads or making the leaves into a refreshing tea. The roots of the dandelion are also highly nutritious and can stave off hunger during emergencies. (Related: 14 Reasons To Become Obsessed With Dandelions.)
  5. Flowering Rush – Many botanists consider this plant to be an invasive species; thus making it a weed in many people’s eyes. Still, the small plant with bright pinkish blooms can be found near bodies of water. Once they are pulled out, they are revealed to have a thick, fleshy root which can be peeled and boiled like a potato.
  6. Garlic Mustard – Practically all parts of this plant can be eaten, although the leaves tend towards a bitter flavor during warmer seasons. Garlic mustard roots are somewhat spicy, similar to the horseradish.
  7. Jerusalem Artichoke – This is one of the easiest plants to spot due to their bright yellow flowers. Brother Simon said that the root should be harvested around two weeks after the flowers begin to fade. One of the ways he enjoyed eating the root of the Jerusalem artichoke was as a soup.
  8. Milk Thistle – This is a popular plant used in homeopathy and naturopathic medicine. The plant contains various antioxidants that promote liver health and weight loss. It has also been noted to reduce the symptoms of asthma. To gain their full benefits, it is best to boil them. You can easily identify them by their violently purple flower with unique leaves that have milky-white veins running through them.
  9. Nut Grass – This is another plant that thrives along the edges of marshes and ponds. The root of this plant can be taken raw, but it is best consumed when boiled and peeled. Nut grass is a favorite among traditional Chinese healers, who call the plant, Xiang Fu or Sha Cao. It is typically prescribed as an antidote for various skin diseases like insect bites and ringworms. It can also be used to alleviate symptoms of acid reflux.
  10. Wild Onion – A bulb that you can easily find in woodlands or fields is the wild onion. “There are several varieties, but all have a distinct ‘onion’ odor — if it smells like an onion it’s safe,” said Brother Simon. “If it looks like an onion but doesn’t smell like one, it may be toxic.” These bulbs can be eaten raw or cooked.  

As you can see, these are plants that you would not give second notice to, but are actually very useful. Preppers should take note of these plants and learn how to spot them around their own neighborhood. You can learn more when you visit Survival.news.

The Four Most Effective Ways To Treat A Migraine

0

by Joshua Krause, Ready Nutrition:

There aren’t many things in life that are more miserable and debilitating than a migraine. The nausea, light sensitivity, visual aberrations, and sharp searing head pains all come together to make a painful cocktail that can put you on your butt within a few hours, and leave you feeling spent for days.

Unfortunately, nobody really knows what causes migraines. Despite the fact that 12{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the population suffers from migraines on a regular basis, the scientific community has never been able to figure out an underlying cause. We know genetics plays a role, and that certain factors can trigger it like the food we consume, poor sleep, depression, and some medications. But we don’t know what really causes it.

However, we do know many ways to treat a migraine, which include:

Applying heat or ice-packs to the head. Both might sound like they could increase the painful symptoms of a migraine, but they are effective. However, these methods don’t work for everyone. You’ll have to see what works best for you through trial and error, which could be said for any migraine treatment.

Consuming caffeine in small amounts has been known to alleviate the symptoms of a migraine. And more importantly, it works well with other medications. For whatever reason, when caffeine is consumed with either acetaminophen and aspirin, it drastically increases the pain relieving effects of those medications.

However, it should be noted that this doesn’t work for everyone. For some people, caffeine can actually increase migraine symptoms, or increase the likelihood of having a migraine.

Certain teas can help a great deal. Just as certain foods and drinks can trigger a migraine, there are substances that have the opposite effect. Chamomile and green tea are known to alleviate migraine symptoms, as well as teas that include ginger or peppermint. Ginger, in particular, may be the most potent natural migraine treatment. One study found that ginger was just as effective as a common migraine treatment drug known as Sumatriptan, but had fewer side effects.

Reducing your exposure to light is probably the most intuitive migraine treatment. Migraines almost always cause a painful light sensitivity and are sometimes caused by bright lights, so it’s natural for most people to shut the blinds, turn off the lights, and close their laptops while they suffer through the symptoms. Doing so won’t usually “cure” a migraine, but it’s the fastest way to relieve the pain and nausea.

However, you should take this a step further. In my personal experience, the best thing to do when you have a migraine is to take a nap for about an hour. Every time I’ve done this, it has dramatically reduced the short and long-term symptoms. I still feel pain for a day or two, but it’s very mild. And the sooner you catch some shut-eye after experiencing the early symptoms of a migraine, the more effective your nap will be.
