Reverse 28 health conditions when you cut out GMOs — researchers tracked the health benefits

(Natural News) You might be aware that organic food is better for you than GMO options, but sometimes the price difference can be prohibitive. If you’ve ever stood in the produce section of the supermarket and asked yourself if the higher price tag on organic offerings is worth it, the results of a peer-reviewed study published recently in the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine will probably help make that decision a lot easier.

The survey of 3,256 people found that 28 conditions could be reversed by switching to a mostly non-GMO and organic diet. This research is consistent with physician reports that show the power of making this type of dietary improvement.

The respondents were asked, among other questions, what conditions or symptoms they have seen improve since making the switch to a GMO-free diet. For each of the 28 symptoms listed, they chose between “some mild improvement,” “moderate improvement,” “significant improvement,” “nearly gone,” “complete recovery” and “not applicable,” which was the default.

Some of the most common conditions to note improvements from making the switch to non-GMO were digestive problems like fatigue and leaky gut, along with obesity.

In total, 85.2 percent of respondents with digestive problems noted they were severely reduced or reversed by switching to non-GMO food. More than 60 percent with fatigue and low energy reported improvements, while 54.6 percent said it turned around weight problems such as being obese or overweight. This is not surprising when you consider that a GMO diet has been linked to excessive cell growth in the lining of the stomach and intestines along with other physiological issues.

More than half of people said a non-GMO diet eliminated that feeling of “brain fog” that is familiar to many people, while a similar amount noted that the change helped them avoid food allergies and sensitivities.

Mood problems also benefited from the switch, with 51.1 percent saying it helped with anxiety and depression, and 48.1 percent noting improvements in memory and concentration.

Meanwhile, 47.5 percent of people said their joint pain improved, and 46.6 percent said a non-GMO diet meant the end of their seasonal allergies.

77TH HOLISTIC DOCTOR SHOT DEAD IN HER AZ HOME WITH HER ENTIRE FAMILY

I recall when the numbers on mysteriously disappearing/suicided/murdered holistic practitioners was at around 29 and the buzz appears to have died down somewhat, and here we are at 77. No disrespect intended for the victims. My condolences to all concerned. This is another terrible tragedy … however one must surely be connecting dots so easily connected in this scenario. We have to ask ourselves why are holistic doctors being caught up in this scenario? This was labeled a murder/suicide within hours of discovery. There is a warning bell right there. You need to see the history of now ‘mainstream’ medicine and when it took precedence over what was formerly mainstream ie holistic/natural. And how the former got precedence. You’ll likely find that on one of the debunk sites but do read both sides of the story. The Flexner report was ordered by once again, the wealthy élite who think there are too many of us (not them) on the planet. And as always, follow the money.

Dr. Annie Fairbanks, a holistic doctor practicing out of Arizona, was found shot dead in her home with husband Jason Fairbanks, 3 year old daughter and 9 month old son. This  makes the 77th holistic doctor to have been found dead in this way over the past couple of years.

Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman for the Scottsdale Police Department, stated that the police do not believe any other parties are involved. This essentially means there are no suspects and that this is likely a murder-suicide. Even the local paper is calling it that. Oddly, this statement and conclusion was made just hours after the incident took place, hardly giving anyone enough time to make a call like that.

“This is an isolated incident,” Hoster told reporters during a news conference in the neighbourhood on Friday afternoon.  “We do not believe there are any outstanding suspects.”

The family ran a health practice called Macrotherapy, which focused on natural and holistic healing. It’s unclear whether or not the practice was employing new or outside the box methods like GcMAF, but further investigations should tell us.

Microwave ovens ‘fluke’ your heart while they ‘nuke’ your food – alarming studies reveal microwave frequency radiation can affect heart and blood

Such harmless benign looking little appliances, and so handy for our insanely sped up nowadays world. I’ve been laughed at for suggesting microwaves are harmful … that Russia banned them at one stage … thankfully the science is emerging. I first learned of the health risks from a nurse who was told in training (UK) not to heat baby formula in a microwave as it kills certain vitamins. From that I smelled a rat as the saying goes. Turns out a man who researched them by testing for vitamin content in food cooked in a microwave & food not, that definitely they do kill your nutrients. Needless to say his research was quickly debunked & hidden a long way under the proverbial carpet. Enough to put me off using one anyway. Err on the side of safety surely. I know a few folk who don’t use these anyway & I haven’t owned one myself for a few years now. As always you need to find this information out for yourself. Mainstream won’t tell you any time soon. It means fewer sales, less profits and so on. Because as you’ve possibly noted lately, for the last decade or more, that profits are more important than you or your health.

(Natural News) Many health conscious consumers rarely, if ever, microwave their food anymore, but when they do, they probably do not realize that they’re not just destroying the nutritional value of the food, but the “nuker” is negatively impacting their hearts.

The typical microwave frequency radiation coming from “nukers” seen in the average American kitchen is more than enough to screw with your heart rate and your heart rate variability. In fact, just 2.4 GHz, the average frequency produced by microwave ovens (and WiFi routers, by the way) can cause immediate and drastic changes to the human heart.

According to Dr. Magda Havas of Trent University, people exposed to radiation for just three minutes at 2.4-GHz can experience severe reactions in heart rate changes and altered heart rate variations, indicating an alarm response to stress, also called electrohypersensitivity (EHS) or rapid aging syndrome. This has been studied for decades. The response includes heart palpitations, clumping of red blood cells and fluctuations of the parasympathetic nervous system typical of a “fight-or-flight” response.

Dr. Havas also revealed that microwave ovens can lead to blood sugar spikes connected with diabetes. This usually happens when people stand within three feet of the oven while it’s running, like when anxious eaters park themselves directly in front of the microwave oven while waiting for those last few seconds to finish “nuking” their food or beverage.

Unequivocal evidence that microwave frequency radiation affects human heart

For years, bogus research and microwave oven fanatics have claimed that microwave ovens do not produce any immediate biological effects because the ordinary household level is far below federal guidelines. Most of those studies were conducted prior to the new millennium, but now environmental radiation is coming at us from multiple sources, including electromagnetic devices, laptops, WiFi and mobile phones.

THREE years on, two women alleging 1080 poisoning while picnicking STILL waiting for answers from NZ Health

From radionz

Two women who believe they were poisoned by 1080 more than three years ago say it’s ridiculous they are still waiting for answers from health officials. Gwen Gardner and her sister were having a picnic inland from Greymouth when a helicopter flew over them. A while later they began to feel sick, and when they returned to their car they noticed 1080 pellets nearby. The West Coast Medical Officer of Health gave the women a draft report in 2015 but they have not heard from her since.

Vaccination in NZ: a Kiwi Doctor’s perspective

A NZ doctor speaks about vaccines and asks the question everybody should be asking … ‘why will the establishment not enter into any dialogue about them?’ Instead the mantra continues that they are safe with outright refusal to look at the ongoing anomalies that are clearly in front of our eyes, and being raised by other health professionals like herself. Another glaring case of the king’s new clothes.

Smart Meters causing tidal wave of mysterious illnesses that strike people in their own homes

An article here from healthnutnews.com  Kiwis, see this site for local information on health risks stopsmartmeters.org.nz   There is a page on the latter site providing testimonies of people whose symptoms stopped following removal of SMs. (Note here they are frequently called Advanced Meters). See our Smart Meter pages also.

The Article from Health Nut News:

In recent years there have been increasing reports that “smart meters” – the digitized electric meters that are designed to send usage figures to power companies wirelessly – are causing a range of health issues among a growing portion of the population where such devices are in use.

RELATED ARTICLE:

In fact, notes the EMF Safety Network, a growing number of people from around the world are beginning to report health problems they believe are related to an increased amount of wireless radiation from various devices, including smart meters.

“Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However, cell phones, cell towers, wi-fi and other wireless devices can also affect your health,” the organization states on its website. “Reducing your EMF exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness.”

The group also notes that the World Health Organization has classified radiation as a 2B carcinogen, and based that declaration on studies that have linked cell phone radiation to brain tumors.

Vast list of symptoms

As noted by Cancer.org, here is how the devices work:

“Smart meters talk to their central systems using RF transmissions, based on a cell phone, pager, satellite, radio, power line (PLC), Wi-Fi or Internet (TCP/IP) communication method. Internet and cell phone applications have become the preferred options because of their flexibility and ease of deployment.”

Cancer.org notes further that smart meters are typically installed outside homes and places of business to measure electricity, water and gas usage. How much RF energy people are exposed to depends on how far they are from the antenna that transmits the signal.

Kids Given Vaccines Have 22 Times the Rate of Ear Infections

Story at-a-glance

  • Thirteen percent of parents are now using an alternative vaccination schedule, and two percent refuse all vaccines for their children. Still, 28 percent of parents following the childhood vaccination schedule think it would be safer to delay the use of vaccines.
  • In German children, 11 percent of those vaccinated reported having ear infections, compared to less than 0.5 percent of unvaccinated children. Similarly, sinusitis was reported in over 32 percent of vaccinated children, while the prevalence in unvaccinated children was less than one percent.
  • There are important, basic differences between naturally-acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. As a parent, you need to educate yourself on each individual disease and corresponding vaccine in order to make an informed decision about the risks and benefits of the choices you make.
  • An important vaccine safety review was issued by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) in August. According to this review of over 1,000 independent studies on vaccines, they were unable to determine whether or not vaccines are a causative factor in over 100 serious adverse health outcomes. In short: the research available is insufficient and cannot be used to confirm nor deny causation for many poor health outcomes and vaccinations.

By Dr. Mercola

In the first video above, Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), summarizes one of the most important scientific reviews on vaccines that was just published in August.

Barbara has been a pioneer for the last 30 years in vaccine safety and informed consent, and this discussion is of grave importance to everyone, including pediatricians and doctors.

What You Must Know About the Latest Vaccine Safety Review by IOM

The report was released by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), which is part of the National Academy of Sciences.

They’ve been around for over 100 years. The institute analyzes health policies and issues advice to the US government.

They’re funded not just by the government but also by pharmaceutical companies and independent philanthropic organizations and individuals.

They are considered a very prestigious scientific body in the world.

In the last three decades, the IOM has reviewed vaccine safety several times.

Their first reports came out in 1991 and 1994.

However, the latest report on this issue, released in August 2011 is very significant, and many still do not understand its true importance.

Over a period of three years, they reviewed over 1,000 studies on vaccines. Interestingly, they excluded studies funded by the pharmaceutical industry, although some of the studies were funded by government agencies independently.

The review focused on eight vaccines:

Hepatitis A-hepatitis B Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine Meningococcal vaccine Pneumococcal vaccine
Diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis, also known as DTaP or Tdap Varicella zoster (chickenpox) HPV vaccine Influenza vaccine

Perhaps the most important thing IOM did in this review is that they looked at two categories of science:

  1. Epidemiological research (large studies comparing different groups of people against each other)
  2. Bench science (research into the biological mechanisms at work within cells and molecules)

“This is very important because a lot of the studies that the CDC relies on as evidence that vaccines don’t cause any problems are epidemiological studies. This report is important because they looked at both kinds of science,” Barbara explains. “The most shocking conclusion of this report is that for more than a hundred bad health outcomes that have been reported after these eight vaccines have been given to people, they could not come to a conclusion as to whether or not those vaccines did or did not cause those adverse events!”

Some of those serious health problems included:

Multiple sclerosis Lupus Encephalitis (brain inflammation)
Rheumatoid arthritis Autism Encephalopathy, involving permanent brain damage

Why Couldn’t IOM Conclude Whether Vaccines Are Causative Factors?

Why is it that the IOM was unable to determine whether there was a direct causative link between vaccines and the many serious health outcomes indicated in these studies? Barbara suggests four potential explanations:

  1. The studies were not available in the published literature
  2. There were too few studies showing the same link
  3. The available studies were methodologically unsound
  4. The available studies were conflicting (i.e. there was evidence both for and against)

The Ultimate Guide to Essential Oils

Here is a very comprehensive guide to what you need to know about essential oils. Thanks to organicdaily.post.com

By Reannan Raine

Essential oils are oils extracted from various plants. They contain compounds which are present in the plants but in a highly concentrated form.

For example, herbs like basil and rosemary contain compounds that are very good for us. We flavor our foods with them for their taste but also because they are good for us.

They contain vitamins, minerals and other compounds that help us stay healthy. Essential oils made from these herbs contain those same healthy elements.

However, because they are so concentrated, we get the same benefits from 1 or 2 drops, as opposed to several tablespoons of plant material.

How Essential Oils are Produced

Essential oils are produced in a few different ways. The method of extraction depends on the plant and also what the oil will be used for.

Steam distillation is most commonly used to get essential oils from herbaceous plants like herbs and mints. It is also often used to get the essential oil from citrus sources and wood sources like rosewood.

Vaccinated Children Have 2 to 5 Times More Diseases and Disorders Than Unvaccinated Children a 2011 Study Revealed!

Preventable Vaccine-induced Diseases

A German study released in September 2011 of about 8000 UNVACCINATED children, newborn to 19 years, show vaccinated children have at least 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children.

The results are presented in the bar chart below; the complete data and study results are here. The data is compared to the national German KIGGS health study of the children in the general population. Most of the respondents to the survey were from the U.S. (Click on the chart to see it better)

vaxunvaxstudy.png

The data was collected from parents with vaccine-free children via an internet questionnaire by vaccineinjury.info and Andreas Bachmair, a German classical homeopathic practitioner. The independent study is self-funded and is not sponsored by a large “credible” non-profit or government health organization with political and financial conflicts of interest; hence Bachmair relies on Google ads and donations for revenue. Each one of the 8000 cases are actual cases with medical documentation. Three other studies had similar results according to Bachmair and are reported below.

No study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted in the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations (now over 50 doses of 14 vaccines given before kindergarten, 26 doses in the first year). Most data collected by CDC is contained in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. The VAERS is generally thought to contain only 3 to 5 percent of reportable incidents. This is simply because only some immediate reactions are reported by doctors; but many are not admitted to be reactions to the vaccine. Most importantly, the VAERS numbers are only immediate reactions, which I would place with a few hours to a few weeks. Long-term vaccine-induced diseases and disorders are not recognized by parents or doctors when these conditions develop perhaps a few months to five years or more and would never be realized to come from multiple vaccinations. In other words, many children and adults have diseases and disorders that are vaccine induced and they never suspect they are from the vaccines, as this study indicates.

The comparisons of the health of vaccine-free children with the health statistics of the general population are the same as comparing unvaccinated with vaccinated. This is simply because the general population of U.S. children are nearly 100 percent vaccinated.

Only four of the unvaccinated 8000 responded with severe autism (0.05%) and these were said to be high mercury cases. On the other hand, I had noticed the results show about a 1% rate for autism in the unvaccinated over 3 years old – about the same as vaccinated children. So I asked Bachmair why the data does not show significantly less. He told me he had invited many autism groups and internet autism lists to participate and thus skewed the results accordingly. If the true rate is 0.5%, I calculated that only 40 extra respondents (above the true average number) responded yes to autism, it would skew the results by a factor of 2. If the true rate is 0.25%, only 60 additional respondents (above the true average number) of the 8000 responded yes to autism, it would skew the results by a factor of 4. So it would not take many respondents from these lists to skew the results significantly.
