(NaturalHealth365) Research confirms what natural health experts have insisted for years: that the gut microbiome – the community of bacteria in the intestinal tract – plays a vital role in health. Researchers say imbalances in this microbial community – alternatively known as dysbiosis – can trigger a laundry list of unwanted health conditions, including increased risk of obesity, autism, “leaky gut,” and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
Now, a new Stanford School of Medicine study suggests that one simple dietary “tweak” – enriching the diet with fermented foods such as yogurt, fresh sauerkraut, and kimchi – can improve the health and diversity of the microbes (or microbiota) while reducing levels of inflammatory enzymes in the body. So let’s look at how fermented foods contribute to better health and disease prevention.

Most of us who have reached maturity take our body’s largest organ at face value, spending a staggering $300 billion on anti-aging globally and approximately $400 million U.S. dollars yearly on over-the counter acne solutions to put on a pretty face.
But for the newest and most vulnerable among us, preterm and full-term infants, healthy skin is critical to their very survival, and here is where researchers think virgin coconut oil may be a major contributor in the fight to lower preterm infant mortality.
Complications arising from preterm births are the leading cause of death globally for children under the age of five, according to the World Health Organization.
A preterm birth is defined as an infant born alive under 37 weeks of gestation. Preterm newborns have an underdeveloped skin barrier, which puts them at high risk for infection, as well as transdermal moisture loss resulting in electrolyte abnormalities and hypothermia, amongst other threats.
“Ginger water is helpful in aiding in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger water can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning.”
“Lemon water is the perfect way to hydrate, purify, and revitalize your body each morning. Water coming straight from the tap or a bottle has lost its vitality and its innate living structure. By adding fresh squeezed lemon juice, you “wake up” the water and bring it back to life…”
(NaturalHealth365) Threats to health – including exposure to environmental toxins, heavy metals, EMF radiation, bacteria and viruses – seem to be everywhere these days, highlighting the need for a strong, efficient immune system. And, with 80 percent of the immune system located in the gut, it’s easy to see that immune health and gut health are closely connected.
In fact, scientific research showcases the ability of a natural molecule, glutathione, to support the health of the immune system. But, this amazing substance must be effectively regenerated and recycled by the body before it can accomplish its life-sustaining tasks. Let’s take a closer look at this important topic.
(NaturalHealth365) The liver is our largest organ in the body, outside of the skin, so that is the first indication that it’s vital to have healthy liver function. If you do have trouble with its function, your skin can be dry, itchy, yellow or riddled with a skin disease.
Technically speaking, “liver failure” tends to take years to develop and can be caused by hepatitis B, C, long-term alcohol consumption, cirrhosis and, of course, poor nutrition.
A quick guide to healthy liver function
Everything we eat and drink has to be broken down into different chemicals before it can get to work on helping (or, in the case of some foods and drinks, harming) the body. And that’s one of the primary jobs of the liver.
Along with vitamin K, the liver makes proteins – which are crucial to blood clotting. The liver also helps to break down old (damaged) blood cells.

Also on the topic of Vitamin C, see our Success Stories page in the Cancer section. Featured is a local (Kiwi/New Zealander) Anton Kuraia who was healed of cancer with IV Vitamin C having received all the chemo the hospital could offer him. He had been sent home to die with literally only weeks to live. You can read his story and more here.

“If you drink alcoholic beverages on occasion, wine could arguably be described as one of the “healthier” options. Red wine, in particular, is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, including resveratrol.
Unfortunately, researchers have uncovered a problem in wine that has recently plagued other foods like apple juice and rice – high, potentially dangerous, levels of arsenic.
Concerning Levels of Arsenic Detected in Popular Wines
A class-action lawsuit filed in California states that wine drinkers have become “unwitting ‘guinea pigs’ of arsenic exposure,”2 after tests showed levels up to four and five times the maximum amount the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows for drinking water.3“

Cancer statistics are now one in three. That is one in every three persons currently in NZ will be diagnosed with cancer every year. I have heard anecdotally that in America it is one in every two males, and one in three females.
Cancer was the most common cause of death for both males and females in New Zealand in 2011, accounting for nearly a third of all deaths.
8891 people had cancer recorded as their underlying cause of death; 52.3% of these were male.
Between 2001 and 2011 the age-standardised death rate from cancer decreased by 13.4%, from 145.5 to 125.9 per 100,000 population (Source: http://www.health.govt.nz )
These statistics are shocking. With such a high rate nearly everybody we care about in one way or another has watched a friend or relative suffering with this plague … or once removed even. I know I have had two friends and three close relatives taken, plus I’ve seen several extended family members also taken, not close to me personally but to those I love.
The thing is, when all hope is gone and chemo is not working, there are alternatives. I was inspired recently by both Allan Smith’s and Anton Kuraia’s testimonies of healing through IV Vitamin C (both are here on the site), and since they are both NZ men I decided to forearm myself should this dreaded verdict, the big C, ever strike my family again. There are Medical Doctors in our country who will administer Vitamin C intravenously and a google search will locate them for you. There are many other treatments also that people have used successfully. On one of the sites featured in the link there are treatments that range from ‘dirt cheap’ to expensive. This is excellent news as not everybody can afford to travel abroad let alone fund the treatment when they get there.
If you visit the link for this post it will take you to our page that provides links to the three excellent sources I’ve featured. I am sure there are more but these are very comprehensive and backed up with success stories of people who also sought alternatives. The alternative treatments are all there on the cancertutor site down the left hand column of the page. The truthaboutcancer website has many videos you can watch with interviews of Medical Doctors and Oncologists.
Disclaimer: It is my aim here, not to treat you (for I am not qualified), to offer advice or give you false hope, rather it is to inspire you with information from both professional Medical Doctors and Oncologists who have long -time experience in the field, and with stories from people like Anton who fought life threatening illnesses and survived. There are many, both abroad and in NZ. Anton Kuraia, with all hope gone, was motivated by another’s success story, to pursue the same alternative treatment; that of Intravenous Vitamin C. It paid off. Should you also wish to pursue this option (or any other options you learn about in your research) search online for Medical Doctors in your country who will administer it.
This is an eye opening article on chemo and cancer from NaturalNews. They say with no treatment at all, and without chemotherapy, patients live longer than with chemotherapy. In The Truth About Cancer’s series of interviews with Medical Doctors and Oncologists (at their website) they also confirm this. (You will also find some of the videos on Youtube).
Here is the NaturalNews article:
“Dr. Hardin B. Jones, a former professor of medical physics and physiology at the University of California, Berkeley, had been studying the lifespans of cancer patients for more than 25 years when he came to the conclusion that, despite popular belief, chemotherapy doesn’t work. He witnessed a multitude of cancer patients treated with the poison die horrific deaths, many of them meeting their fate much earlier than other patients who chose no treatment at all.
After investigating this further, Dr. Jones found that cancer patients who underwent chemotherapy actually died more quickly, in most cases, than those who followed their doctors’ recommendations by getting the treatment…”

Featuring here, another success story in the health and wellness section. With all the bad news that’s about, we can all do with some good news.
Firstly though, to back up a little, and many of you will identify I’m sure, having seen dear friends and loved ones receive the awful news they have a terminal illness, and seen them pass on after a long struggle, I’m determined to highlight the many stories I’ve heard lately of folks who came through their dark valley with success, giving new hope for others. People who were sent home to plan their funerals, now living full lives again, back working and caring for their families.
“My journey and eventual remission in October 2013 has provided me with a new sense of purpose and appreciation of life. I hope my experiences can inspire and comfort those who are affected by cancer.” Anton Kuraia
I’ve featured on the site two wonderful success stories, one already shared, that of Anton Kuraia, the Northland Police Officer who was cured of cancer using IV Vitamin C. (Articles and videos at this link). Well here’s another story that also made headline news both in our own country NZ, and world wide, that of Waikato farmer, Allan Smith.
Allan had been on life support for three weeks with swine flu and other complications. His Doctors had advised the family they wanted to terminate his life support, however this family wasn’t going to give up that easily! Allan, through the persistence of his family received IV Vitamin C also and is now a walking testimony of the success of that treatment. His amazing and inspiring story with links to both media coverage and Allan’s website are here. A full article by Health Impact News can be found here.
Do keep an eye on this section as I add further information, stories and interviews with health professionals, MDs and Oncologists who have had both extensive experience in their respective fields, and seen amazing recoveries from life threatening illness.
It is my aim, not to treat you (for I am not qualified), or to offer advice, rather it is to inspire you with information from both professionals in their fields, and with stories from people like Anton and Allan who fought life threatening illnesses and survived. There are many, both abroad and in NZ. People whose persistence paid off. Should you also wish to pursue the Vitamin C option (or any other options you learn about in your research) search online for Medical Doctors in your country and region who will administer them. Both Allan’s and Anton’s website have valuable information also about their own respective journeys.
