In the near future, American medical practice may change dramatically for the worse. No longer will maximal dose natural supplements—vitamins, natural compounds, and scientifically proven medicinal herbs—be available over the counter in local health and grocery stores. Holistic practice, which relies upon non-prescription natural treatments instead of Big Pharma drugs prescribed life-long, will diminish. American healthcare will be imprisoned, patients will be forced to abide by a single medical paradigm defined by corporate drug and food executives and dictated by a government enforcement agency, the Food and Drug Administration FDA. This is the bleak scenario if the FDA succeeds in limiting Americans’ options to prevent and treat diseases.‘War on Health’ is the first documentary detailing and challenging the FDA agenda and its allegiance with the international Codex Alimentarius, which hopes to establish a monolithic food and health regime. Betraying its founding mandate to assure drug, food and chemical safety in the interests of public health, the FDA today is a repressive bureaucracy serving pharmaceutical and agricultural greed and profits. Vaccines, medical devices, prescription drugs are fast tracked at alarming rates through the FDA at the expense of scientific oversight to assure their efficacy and safety. Theresult is hundreds of thousands premature deaths annually from pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines and medical devices and an epidemic of medical incompetence and fraud sanctioned by federal health officials.Featuring many pioneering American and European attorneys, physicians, medical researchers and advocates of health freedom, War on Health lifts the veil on FDA’s militaristic operations against organic food providers and alternative physicians. The film’s conclusion is perfectly clear: the FDA is a tyrannical cult founded upon the denial of sound medical science with little intention to improve the nation’s health and prevent disease.
Smudging is the common name given to the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing, a powerful Native American cleansing technique. It is a ritual to remove negativity. Smoke attaches itself to the negative energy and removes it to another space. Cleansing is the word traditionally used, but you can think of it as a shift in energy from any bits of negativity to a more positive, peaceful state. Smudging can be used to cleanse an object, a place, or your spirit, mind or body. Native Americans often use smudging in association with other ceremonies.
Smudging involves the burning of sacred herbs and grasses. Native elders teach us that, before a person can be healed or heal another, one must be cleansed of any bad feelings, negative thoughts, bad spirits or negative energy – cleansed both physically and spiritually. This helps the healing to come through in a clear way, without being distorted or sidetracked by negative “stuff”. The elders say that all ceremonies, private or tribal, must be entered into with a good heart so that we can pray, sing and walk in a sacred manner, and be helped by the spirits to enter the sacred realm.
In many traditions, smudging involves a four directions ceremony or prayer. It, thus, sends specific kinds of smoke or prayer into the four different directions. Of course, different tribes have different smudging prayers, but the smoke is typically directed or programmed to do a specific action or a specific direction, aiding in divination. However, in general smudging is used to maintain balance and shield against negative energy. As has been noted above, it is often used as a cleansing agent.
Smudging is an age-old tribal tradition which has been used for centuries to create harmony and peace. There are many different shamanic smudging ceremonies, and different tribes use a variety of herbs for smudging. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do it.
Smudging is very effective when you’ve been feeling depressed, angry, resentful or unwell, or after you have had an argument with someone; if you’re going to have a special ritual or ceremony, as part of a general spiritual housecleaning, or to clear your crystals of any negative energy.
You can use smudge sticks (herbs that are tied into a bundle for easier handling), braided herbs and botanicals (like sweetgrass) or loose herbs like mugwort (burned on charcoal or in a firepot). Shamanic smudging releases the energy and fragrance of the herbs and botanicals so they can heal, cleanse and purify…
(NaturalNews) As we find ourselves once again awash in a sea of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), few people who participate, donate or buy pink-themed products are aware that BCAM has always been a deliberate deception – a "pinkwash" which helps "do-gooder" sponsors hide their own culpability while promoting products which cause cancer.
In the beginning
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) was launched in 1987 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), a British chemical company which has been a world leader in manufacturing cancer-causing pesticides, plastics and other products. From day one, ICI and later spin-off Zeneca have used BCAM to direct research and prevention efforts away from chemical carcinogens.
To this day, not a word can be found in any of the BCAM literature suggesting that decreasing exposure to chemical carcinogens or dietary changes can help play a role in cancer prevention.
“There’s a new breed of diabetics in the country and they aren’t pill-dependent or helpless with their high sugar levels. A rising number of patients are reversing diabetes through whole plant-based diets and even turning vegan. Two city-based filmmakers are also filming a documentary on the patients who taken their health in their own hands, finds Phorum Dalal”
“In November 2011, 30 year-old Kandivli resident Mayank Bhatia (name changed on request) was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. A weightlifter and a passionate body builder, doctors advised him to stop his rigorous workout regime. “My sugar levels were 300, and I felt lethargic all day,” says Bhatia.
In February 2012, he came across a one-day seminar on ‘reversal’ of diabetes in Mumbai. A week later, he landed up at the venue to hear the “impossible”….

Under this understanding what is known as AIDS is essentially ID – immune deficiency – or chronic immune deficiency. Acquired is ambiguous (from what?) and syndrome simply means multiple symptoms which they don’t fully know they cause of. In fact immune deficiency is fundamentally what is going on when a person lacks homeostatic ease to an extreme enough point that after you start exhibiting multiple symptoms, your immune system simply looses enough strength to deal with much else.
So there isn’t so much wrong with a person’s immune system as it is over taxed and can’t keep up anymore. This is good news, because it means that when you reduce the taxation (bringing ease back to the system) your immune function will return.
All true healing involves three principles; Abstinence, Detoxification, and Nourishment. Abstinence from that which is causing homeostatic lack-of-ease, detoxification to eliminate the build up of the toxins and nutrition to feed and replace the healing body’s damaged tissue.
Drugs and “modern medicine” (read pharma drug pushers) ignore all this and treat dis-ease as an alien invasion, and use warfare to combat it. Poison, burn, or cut it out. This is not about helping the body to create balance. It does however create a mass duplicate-able product line, and profits. It does not however abstain from things that suppress the immune system (in fact most suppress it), it does not detoxify the build up of toxins (in fact most add to the toxic build up), and they do not nourish the body. So how does this create ease? It doesn’t.. it may cover up symptoms, but that creates “side-effects”. Talk about snake oil. Some how the pharmaceutical cartel has had such an influence (especially since louis pasteur – no I will not capitalize his name) on the medical profession that modern doctors have forgotten all about internal hygiene and your inner “milieu”. Yet they swear to the Hippocratic oath to do no harm. And as Hippocrates said; “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food.” Talk about Hypocrites!
Your body is like an aquarium.. mostly water, with billions of different types of symbiotic microbes living with in it. In fact you are only 10% human cells! The rest is microbial – and that is how it should be. Targeting one type of microbe in your body, by dropping a chemical in it (like bleach into your aquarium) it does way more than kill off the one you think you are targeting. As Dr. Otto Warburg put it “It’s like hunting bunnies with nuclear bombs. You might kill a few bunnies, but you also kill the whole forest.”
Also how do microbes become out of balance in the body? By killing off the other types (making their environment hostile), and by feeding the ones which become over populated. The trick isn’t to try to kill off the one type of microbe, the trick is to create balance for all of the microbes. Like a permaculture garden, they balance each other out. They are a community – you are a community.. and in order for you to be healthy, everything needs to be vibrant and flourishing. Like any healthy eco-system. Free of toxic stress, nourished, good drainage (like detoxification).
So the whole notion of having a virus called HIV which is attacking you, and trying to control it’s population, is not only naive, but highly dangerous. The inventor of the protease inhibitor even says it should never be used to treat HIV or AIDS. (from the documentary “The Other Side of Aids”). In which the inventor of the polymerase chain reactor – the machine they supposedly use to identify the HIV retrovirus, says his technology can do no such thing. And points out that never has there ever been documented peer reviewed evidence of HIV being in any way linked to the set of conditions known as AIDS. Seriously! Such a frenzy was stirred up with the AIDS scare in the early 80′s, that the fact that Dr. Roberta Gallo managed to sneek it past everyone that he never proved the connection – nor had his findings peer reviewed. Try to find the original documented experimental proof. There was none.
There is a deeper truth here that goes into some deeper so called “conspiracies” (that is a trigger word to get people to roll their eyes and laugh, and not look any further) that I wont go into here, but it isn’t pretty. In fact many believe, in sheer numbers this affects this is the modern holocaust… or worse. (yeah this is going to piss some people off – but so does any radical truth. I’ve never been one to shy away from stating a truth even if it’s contrary to popular opinion.)
There is only one way to heal all dis-ease, and that is ease.
- Abstinence from that which is throwing your ease
- Detoxification of that which threw your ease off
- Nourishment to fix the damage, and build you a healthy body

Wouldn’t it be nice to just trust that what you purchased from your local supermarket was good for you. I’m not talking about the convenience foods, cookies, or highly processed canned goods—I’m referring to the produce. Wouldn’t it be great to know that all of the natural and beautiful fruits and vegetables were completely safe for your consumption?
While these are likely the healthiest
foods at the grocery store, we can no longer trust that they are completely safe. That’s just the times we live in. And while you have every right and justification to question every item you purchase, there are some you should always be wary of.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) reports that eating produce from what’s become known as the Dirty Dozen could result in you being exposed to 15 different pesticides every single day. The Dirty Dozen is a list of the most contaminated produce of our days. These foods are the most likely to be contaminated and therefore are the foods to buy organic always.
But not all of us have access to a great selection of organics. And even if the variety is there, sometimes the money isn’t. If you were only able to choose five different organic products, these would top the list:
Peaches: Ninety-seven percent of peaches tested positive for pesticides, according to the EWG. And about 87% of them had two or more pesticide residues, some with combinations of up to 57 different chemicals.
Apples: Ninety-two percent of apples tested positive for pesticides and 79% had two or more of the dangerous chemicals present.
Celery: Ninety-six percent of celery tests positive for pesticides. One sample tested positive for 13 different pesticides!
Cilantro: Technically it’s an herb, but it’s dirty. About 92.9% of cilantro is contaminated, 70.1% of which is contaminated by more than one chemical.
Strawberries: Strawberries rank third on the list of contaminated fruits and vegetables, with 13 different pesticides per sample.
Lately the ancient Ayurvedic practice of Oil Pulling has started to circulate by word of mouth again. People are buzzing about this magical practice that whitens teeth naturally and provides a host of benefits that one would never imagine go hand in hand with simply swishing some oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes. Dr. Karach was a Ukrainian physician who spoke about pulling oil as a “remarkable treatment” at a conference of the All Ukranische-Union of the Oncologists (specialists for tumor diseases) and Bacteriologists, a part of the Academy of Sciences of UDSSR.
Dr. Karach explained that his method could heal a disease at the root, and also act as a preventative. His belief was also backed by experience; he healed himself of a chronic blood disease that had troubled him for 15 years. He even reported to have cured his acute arthrosis by oil pulling in just 3 days’ time. His belief was that humans were only living to half of their life capacity because of unnecessary disease, and that man should live easily to 140-150 years old….
