A NEW LOOK AT CANCER PREVENTION: 

 

PROMOTING NATURE’S RHYTHMS IN YOUR BODY

Article #1 in a 3-part series

Read Article #2      A Critical Factor:  Managing Stress!

 

A recent article by the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida states that Cancer has surpassed heart disease as the leading killer in America.  This is quite plausible when you see the CDC’s numbers for 2016:  Cardiovascular disease took 635,260 lives and cancer accounted for 598,038 lives.  Among the myriad of theories and methods for using natural and holistic medicine to […]

REISHI “QUEEN” OF THE MUSHROOMS

“Asian history has more medical documentation on Reishi than any other mushroom.  In 2005, it took away my grandfather’s chest pains for 5 years…beginning on the day he started using it.

    

For advanced-stage cancer, asthma, depression and a long list of conditions, I think Reishi.  But for cardiovascular, it is my #1 pick.”Jeff Primack, author of Conquering ANY Disease, The Ultimate High-Phytochemical Food-Healing System

The Chinese Royalty had it pretty good.  Anything rare and precious […]

LION’S MANE FOR THE BRAIN & NERVES

 

MEET THE MUSHROOM MAN

We first encountered Paul Stamets on YouTube.   I could not rip myself away for a second.   His talk at a Bioneers’ Conference in 2015 was riveting and inspiring.   This man and his wife have literally spent years in the forests, mostly in Oregon and Washington States.  He holds hundreds of patents and is widely regarded as a top science expert in the field of mycology.  He has a mission on this planet and has found hundreds of solutions using […]

OIL OF OREGANO: Can it take the place of Antibiotics?

oregano-oilI’ve gargled with it for a few seconds and immediately stopped a sore throat in its tracts.  It was used by Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, in the 5th Century B.C.    I’m talking about Oregano with its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal effects.  It has also been known to kill MRSA, Listeria, and other pathogens.  And with modern antibiotics becoming less and less effective in the face of new and more virulent strains of bacteria, we need to go back to our ancestors’ medicine chests.

AUTOIMMUNITY: THE PERFECT STORM, Part 2

PaAutoimmune imagert 2:  Your TWO Immune Systems

What has become clear to me (and Chinese Medicine as a whole) over the years is that Autoimmune diseases are NOT well understood by Conventional Medicine.  The common thinking is that the body is “turning against itself” for some puzzling, unknown reason.   Oftentimes I believe that pathogens, e.g. mercury, inflammatory proteins created by GMO foods, stress hormones, etc. are physically present.  The immune system is attacking them, but our healthy cells are caught in the cross fire.   Although we can’t SEE these pathogens with our current […]

Part 2 of 3 in our series on Cancer, 2015

 

What is the current science showing about the causes of cancer?  Cigarettes are well-known carcinogens, and there are other fairly well-known “causes” of cancer, so no need to cover those here.  In this article we’ll name and explore three other causes which are either quite new or not as well understood:

 

#1:   LACK OF AIR/OXYGEN.  This is NEW science.  This condition creates anaerobic stem-like cells which cannot function properly. This occurs due to toxicity in our bodies.  These cells […]
