FOOD FORESTS COULD BRING HEALTHY ORGANIC FOOD TO EVERYONE: FOR FREE

by Andrew Martin, Collective Evolution:

Food forests or Forest gardening have been around for a long time with many of the native cultures practicing this form of sustainable agriculture. It is a form of low-maintenance plant-based food production which replicates natural ecosystems, incorporating fruit and nut trees, shrubs, herbs, running vines and perennial vegetables. Beneficial plants and companion planting is a big part of the food forest system.

Unlike much of the modern industrial agricultural system which relies heavily of inputs such as fossil fuels and artificial herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, a food forest once established is self-regulating and highly abundant in yield.

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

0

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.

Saffron: Ancient Healing Powers Confirmed by Science

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Clearly there is something magical about the Crocus sativus flower, from which the spice saffron is derived. If its striking beauty does not immediately cast a spell on its beholder, often it simply takes experiencing the spice to fall into full enchantment with it.

While saffron is exceptionally expensive, because it takes approximately 150 flowers to yield just 1,000 mg (0.035 oz) of dry saffron threads, and costs approximately $1,000 a pound, it does not take much to have an effect. Its uniqueness is also illustrated by the fact that it shuns mechanization, requiring of its would-be possessors painstaking harvesting by hand, as no doubt has been done for tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years. Because each Crocus sativus flower bears no more than four flowers, each with three vivid crimson stigmas from which the spice is derived, at most only 12 stigma are produced by each, which yields the equivalent of 30 mg (0.011 oz) of fresh saffron or 7 mg (0.00025 oz) dried.

From Tree To Table: Tips For Fresh Maple Syrup

0

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!

THE VARICELLA VACCINE, SKYROCKETING SHINGLES AND CDC CHICANERY

by World Mercury Project, Collective Evolution:

“Collusion” is the word du jour, and the practice’s very characteristics—deception, fraud, misrepresentation and secrecy—often prevent collusive acts from coming to light. In the scientific research community, would-be deceivers draw on a variety of tricks to slant their message, including manipulating data, employing other questionable research practices, not disclosing conflicts of interest, harassing whistleblowers and engaging in outright censorship.

The Many Ways Lavender Is A Must For Natural Health

0

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.

Brain Regeneration: Why It’s Real & How To Do It

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Have you ever wished you could regenerate those brain cells you sacrificed in college? Do you fear that your aging brain is in a perpetual state of decline? Medical science is being rewritten to show that we CAN improve the health of our brain, and that repairing damageis not only possible, it’s something anyone can do.

It is a commonly held misconception that the brain is beyond repair. Even the medical establishment has asserted that once we kill brain cells, they are gone forever. The fact is, the brain can repair itself, and as science is now proving, there is real benefit to simple practices that can help keep our brains sharp and elastic throughout our lifetime.

Cell Tower Radiation Facts & 5G Unknowns

0

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

Cell phone towers dot the landscape every so many hundred or thousand feet in most places, especially along interstate highways and on higher or hill-top locations.  Because there is such a demand for cell phone service—more cell phones now than the total global population—more and more technology means of providing service have to be implemented.  However, cell towers cost around $150,000 each to erect.  Consequently, cell providers want less expensive ‘infrastructure’ to be able to provide faster and ‘better’ service, therefore, the introduction of “5G”, which no one knows what that “generation of service” will do to humans, wildlife and the environment.

One of the more resolute EMR/RF/cell phone radiation researchers is Lloyd Burrell of Royan Poitou Charentes, France, in the European Union.  Lloyd does an exceptional job of researching, providing a newsletter and also interviewing other researchers on his weekly Internet show, which can be accessed at ElectricSense and lloyd@electricsense.com.

Recently Lloyd produced an extremely informative document about “Cell Tower Radiation & Cancer, The Facts” wherein he listed 17 References and/or citations from scientific journals pointing out connections between cell towers and cancer.  I’ve taken the liberty to reproduce those References below, as they point to apparent health hazards that are ‘overlooked’ in favor of implementing cell phone and tech services.

If the research below indicates problems, especially cancer, what can we expect from 5G?  No one really knows!

Turmeric’s ‘Smart Kill’ Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame 124.7k Shares 119.8k

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! Research finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.

A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the world’s most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment: the primary polyphenol in the ancient spice turmeric known as curcumin, has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer malignancy, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.

Lawmakers Introduce Farm Bill Amendment to Prohibit Federal Government Interference in Raw Milk Sales

by Derrick Broze, Activist Post:

A bipartisan group of lawmakers have introduced an amendment to the House Farm Bill designed to make it easier for consumers to access raw milk.

As part of the ongoing debate of the so called “Farm Bill,” three representatives have introduced an amendment to prohibit the federal government from intervening in state laws which allow for the sale of raw milk. The House Rules Committee will debate a number of amendments on Tuesday and Wednesday before a potential floor vote later this week.

Forget who takes the mid-terms: Here’s how to personally repeal Obamacare

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

If the US government doesn’t act quickly, Americans may be stuck with years more of deteriorating healthcare and skyrocketing medical bills.

Back in 2010, Congress and President Obama completely overhauled the US healthcare system with the “Affordable” Care Act (aka Obamacare). Their intention was to provide all US citizens with access to healthcare.

But, the result of government interference in markets was – surprise – rising costs and lower quality service.

Over the past several years, politicians have paid lip service to abolishing Obamacare. Even with a Republican-controlled House and Senate in 2017 and 2018, Congress couldn’t issue a repeal.

The Miracle Drink That Should Be In Every Pantry

0

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

ReadyNutrition Guys and Gals, we’re going to cover some interesting information pertaining to Green Tea, and some reasons why you should make it a part of your routine.  I have written about it in the past, but mainly to help against HFV’s (Hemorrhagic Flu Viruses), such as Bird Flu and Ebola.  Green Tea is not expensive, and it is a great beverage to partake in.  In fact, according to Healthline.com, it’s “the healthiest beverages on the planet.” Green Tea itself comes from an evergreen shrub, Camellia sinensis, originally cultivated in China and now more widespread throughout the Far East and the Middle East.

Why Green Tea is so Great

The primary clinical application (medicinally) for Green Tea is as an adjunct in the prevention of both heart disease and cancer.  All the body’s systems, such as the digestive tract, bloodstream, and breasts (regarding estrogen-related cancers for women) have been demonstrated to be protected with Green Tea, that contains anticancer properties in abundance.

It has thermogenic and fat-oxidizing properties that can be useful for patients who are obese.  It also reduces glucose and several other plasma constituents that are indicative of Type 2 Diabetes.  Polyphenols are the chemicals that are responsible for the chemoprotective (protect from chemicals and poisons) and antioxidative effects of Green Tea.  In past articles, I explained how free radicals worked, and I’m going to touch on it again now.

Free radicals are atoms or molecules that are missing an electron.  What they do is “grab” or “capture” that missing electron, “stealing” it if you will from a healthy cell.  The problem is, the healthy cell is no longer healthy.  Scientists and doctors believe that free radicals are responsible for a great deal of growth of cancerous cells, as well as being the primary agents responsible for aging.  Green Tea is an antioxidant: it holds extra electrons, and it fights these free radicals by donating one of its extra electrons to the “Snidely Whiplash” free radical, thereby neutralizing its harmful effects.  Do you get the picture?

The caffeine in Green Tea is a central nervous system stimulant; however, it is not as potent as coffee.  The caffeine content is about 10 to 50 mg per cup, depending on the type and quality of the tea.  The polyphenols, on the other hand, range from about 80 to 100 mg per cup.  Over the course of a day, four cups are about the limit with three being a normative amount.  Keep in mind: people with cardiac problems should consult their friendly physician when he’s back from the golf course prior to taking green tea or acting upon information in this article.

From a workout perspective, the antioxidants in Green Tea will promote recovery faster after you’ve completed exercising.  Guess what?  Not only is it good for the systems we just mentioned, but it’s also good for the development of the human brain.

L-theanine is an amino acid that enhances the brain’s A (Alpha) waves, and it boosts a chemical produced within the brain called BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor).  L-theanine increases neurogenesis in the hippocampus.  What this means is that it stimulates the growth of nerve cells and strengthens the connections between nerve endings and nerve cells within the human brain.  This effect is also accomplished with the aid of EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a polyphenol and an antioxidant that helps the hippocampus and also the mitochondria…a crucial “power-supplying machine” within our cells.  Green Tea is an excellent source of these things.

I’m drinking some as we speak.  Yeah, JJ buys it at the dollar tree, 100 bags for $1.00, but be advised: the bags are 1 g (gram) bags, and you need about 1.75 bags to have the effects of a full cup.  I do this: I use a jar that holds 1 quart of water.  I fill it up, put in 7 tea bags, and secure the lid.  Then I set it in the sun.  At the end of the day, I squeeze the bags and place the jar in the fridge.  Each morning I fill up a 32-ounce Gatorade bottle with my tea, and I sip off this all-day long.  So, each 32-ounce bottle is equal to 4 cups of Green Tea.  I don’t sweeten it or put anything in it…just drink it straight up.  Cost is not even a dime a quart, with no bad ingredients.  Can’t beat that, and it’s as simple as the day is long.  Mrs. JJ and I get a week out of a box.

So, check into this one and you’ll really get used to the taste of it.  The benefits are exceeding, and you can do it the way that I do for pennies on the dollar.  The Chinese have been using it for about 5,000 years, and although there aren’t any 5,000-year-old Chinamen, their people (based on herbalism and homeopathic remedies) enjoy longer lifespans than ours.  They must be doing something right, and Green Tea is a centerpiece of Chinese Herbal Medicine.  Stay in that good fight!

Pediatric NICU Nurse Comes Forward to Talk About Child Vaccine Injuries: “It’s Been Too Long I Have Stayed Silent”

by Angela Renee, Humans Are Free:

Do you know why we are suddenly, and in such great numbers, stepping out of hiding, bearing the mockery, insults, wishes of death on us and our children? (Yes, this is happening A LOT!) It’s because we can’t afford to remain silent any longer, there is TOO much at stake for ALL of us!

Growing up I had all my vaccines, the 11 or so we got back in 1984, seemingly uneffected and happily moving forward in life.

Fast forward to nursing school. I remember watching a short video, the CDC schedule & the importance of our patients receiving the full schedule. The denial of the autism link – and that’s it. We did not study ingredients, we were not told about vaccine injury/death, or how to report to VAERS when an injury occurred. One class quickly spoonfed. And we moved on.

1 tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar for 60 days can eliminate all of these health problems

0

by Erin Elizabeth, Health Nut News:

Vinegar is said to have been discovered around 5000 BC, when unattended grape juice turned into wine and then vinegar. Originally used as a food preservative, vinegar’s medicinal uses soon came to light.

Hippocrates used vinegar to manage wounds, while medical practitioners in the 1700s used it to treat everything from poison ivy and croup to stomach aches. Vinegar was even used to treat diabetes.

Vinegar, which means “sour wine” in French, can be made from virtually any carbohydrate that can be fermented, including grapes, dates, coconut, potatoes, beets, and, of course, apples.

The TRUE History Of Fluoridation: Toxicity Was Hidden And LIED ABOUT By The Government

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

The true history of the fluoridation of water in the name of tooth decay prevention is coming out. As the mainstream media continues to lose its grip on the public’s throat with blatant and intentional fake news, the truth behind all of the lies touted are rising to the surface.

You’ve likely heard it before: “Just get the shot. Just take the medicine. It’s all in your best interest.” But some journalists are finally blowing holes in the government’s propaganda campaign and the media’s history of lying to us for profit. It isn’t just Mike Adams, the Health Ranger who has come out declaring the mainstream media nothing more than the propaganda arm of the deep state, but now John Rappaport is delivering evidence of the dishonesty behind the fluoridation campaign.

Joe Joseph, with The Daily Sheeple walks us through what Rappaport has repeatedly written about: the truth behind the fluoridation of our water.

In 1997, Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson, two respected mainstream journalists, peered into an abyss. They found a story about fluorides that was so chilling it had to be told.

The Christian Science Monitor, who had assigned the story, never published it.

Their ensuing article, “Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb,” has been posted on a number of websites.

Author Griffiths told me that researchers who study the effects of fluorides by homing in on communities with fluoridated drinking water, versus communities with unfluoridated water, miss a major point: studying the water is not enough; toxic fluorides are everywhere—they are used throughout the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of drugs, and also in many other industries (e.g., aluminum, pesticide). –John Rappaprot’s Blog

“Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by A-bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide ‘evidence useful in litigation’ [against persons who had been poisoned by fluoride and would sue for damages]… The first lawsuits against the US A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the [government] documents show,” said the Griffiths/Bryson report. 

In order to stop lawsuits against damages done by the government with fluoride on unsuspecting Americans, a dishonesty campaign was set in full force. The government began lying to promote fluoride as a useful agent against tooth decay, even though it’s a powerful central nervous system damaging chemical.
