Honeybees have had a hard time over the last several decades — colony collapse disorder, habitat destruction and exposure to increasing levels of chemicals in the environment. Approximately 40% of bee colonies in the U.S. perished last year, and the numbers are climbing. Dr. Dennis van Engelsdorp, an entomologist from the University of Maryland, believes there […]Continue Reading
There’s no doubt about it: The world’s demand for organically grown produce is growing rapidly, so much so that dozens of countries around the world have already banned the chemicals that are so commonly sprayed on conventionally grown food. If you’re someone who believes organic farming is unsustainable, ask yourself, how are so many countries (like Russia, Switzerland, […]Continue Reading

In a groundbreaking new study just published in the peer reviewed journal Stem Cells, researchers at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Department of Oncology found that, despite killing half of all tumor cells per treatment, radiation treatments on breast cancer transforms other cancer cells into cancer stem cells which are vastly more treatment-resistant than normal cancer cells. The new study is yet another blow to the failed and favored mainstream treatment paradigm of trying to cut out, poison out or burn out cancer symptoms (tumors) instead of actually curing cancer.
Senior study author Dr. Frank Pajonk, associate professor of radiation oncology at the Jonsson Center, reported that induced breast cancer stem cells (iBCSC) “were generated by radiation-induced activationContinue Reading
Following the recent catastrophic tsunami that hit Japan, the nuclear reactor explosion from Fukushima Japan nuclear plant is blasting deadly radiation into the environment and poisoning human bodies.
The victims need immediate protection or they can become deathly ill with nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, headache and fever.
Even worse, radiation can cause long-term damage leading to leukopenia (cancer), genetic damage (inability to have children) and physical deformity.
And the victims extend beyond humans: radiation strikes animals and the environment as well.
Food can become contaminated with radioactive isotopes, as well the water supply that irrigates crops and supplies drinking water.

My journalist-as-guinea-pig experiment is taking a disturbing turn. A Swedish chemist is on the phone, talking about flame retardants, chemicals added for safety to just about any product that can burn. Found in mattresses, carpets, the plastic casing of televisions, electronic circuit boards, and automobiles, flame retardants save hundreds of lives a year in the United States alone. These, however, are where they should not be: inside my Body.
Åke Bergman of Stockholm University tells me he has received the results of a chemical analysis of my blood, which measured levels of flame-retarding compounds called polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

What Effect Does Zeolite Have On Autoimmune Diseases?
Auto-immune illnesses can be associated with an underactive immune system or an overactive immune system.
Examples of an underactive immune function would include cancer and HIV disease. In both these conditions the underactive immune system fails to detect and kill cancer cells or fight off infections as would normally occur.
One of the conditions with an overactive immune system would be rheumatoid arthritis In this disease the immune system attacks the membranes in the joints in an uncontrolled manner resulting in progressive destruction of joints.
Zeolite has a modulating effect on immune diseases which stimulates the immune system to perform more effectively in an under active disorder and slows down the activity of the immune system in diseases where the immune system is operating excessively.

The pharmaceutical industry earns one trillion dollars each year from the sale of chemotherapy drugs. If anyone thinks that this industry will soon be bringing forth a new therapy that will cure cancer they may wish to revaluate this thinking.
These people are brilliant at controlling the media and encouraging the public that “the cure is just around the corner.”
If they were to cure cancer it would be the biggest mistake they have ever made and they are not accustomed to making mistakes.
One of the key factors in successful therapy of cancer is removal of toxic metals (mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, aluminum, iron, uranium etc.) from the body.
Dr. Josef Issel of Germany had great success treating cancer with fever, organic raw food, enzymes and immune stimulating methods.
In his office a biologic dentist removed metal amalgams (mercury) and mercury dental deposits from these patients. His methods were so successful he earned a three year stay in a German prison in the site reserved for convicted murderers.
Natural Cellular Defense is a natural zeolite-based substance that is being increasingly studied for its near-miraculous ability to bind with heavy metals and toxic chemicals, removing them from the body.
Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., is leading the research on the use of Natural Cellular Defense to remove these chemicals from the body, and this article shares his latest results.
Those results are quite remarkable, as you will see below.
Given that virtually every person living in modern society today has hundreds of synthetic chemicals in their bodies that do not belong there, and with the documented proof that combining Natural Cellular Defense with a simple juice fast can remove 88 percent of those chemicals from the body, this is research of tremendous importance. Its importance cannot be overstated when discussing the prevention of cancer, Alzheimer’s, birth defects and even diabetes.
“What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly” – Lao Tzu.The way I see it, there are two ways of experiencing cancer. The first is viewing it as a caterpillar would, as the ultimate end; the finite. The second is viewing it as a butterfly would, as an experience that may let us fly free from the expectations and realities of the world; to embrace our inner child, our creativity, our light. I believe that my experiences are more aligned with that of the butterfly.
In the summer between Canada and Mexico occurs one of the world’s largest migrations of one of the world’s most delicate creatures, the Monarch butterfly. The Monarch migrates 2000 miles, spanning the life cycle of four generations to continue on its legacy. And if we think about the Monarch’s journey and the many challenges it overcomes in such a fragile state, we can also see how this might directly relate to a person with cancer.Continue Reading

“I take Natural Cellular Defense, and I feel that everyone living in the
industrial world should be taking it on a regular basis.
This product is very different from supplements that add to well-being, but are not essential.
Natural Cellular Defense is simple, elegant, extraordinary, and vital
for healthy living in today’s toxic world.
I believe this most unique, natural substance is an alchemical gift from God to help us face our present-day health challenges due to ecological ignorance or, as they are called in Ayurveda, prajna prathara or crimes against nature.Continue Reading
I believe that the most important lesson I learnt from my experience with terminal cancer, was that you should always embrace every opportunity, no matter what it entailed. To love, to be inspired, to be depressed, to make art, to speak the truth, to embrace the chaos that is life, to forgive yourself, to breathe, to enjoy the ride. There are so many people in life who walk around with their heads in the sand; being swallowed up by money, by jobs, by addictions, by society. I think that having terminal cancer opens your eyes in a way I never thought possible, and you can see clearly for the first time; it is a rebirth of epic proportions.
The day I was first diagnosed, I remember feeling in a state of ‘deep rest’; what some might call depressed. I see it differently, as for the first time I was able to understand my symptoms and relax into a state where I could deal with the diagnosis.Continue Reading
The safe removal of heavy metals is becoming one of the modern world’s biggest health issues. Heavy metals surround us; chemtrails, vaccines, air and water pollution, living or working near a smelter or mine, dental fillings and of course, the kingpin of all, Fluoridated water. Hydrofluosilicic acid, the chemical often used to fluoridate drinking water, is an industrial waste that contains lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, benzene and radioactive waste material. A fact that boggles the mind and poses the question, how did we let this end up in our water?
“In my clinical experience, everyone has excessive amounts of some, or all of the toxic metals” Lawrence Wilson, MD. No one in the industrial world is untouched, and the effects of heavy metal are nothing short of frightening, with links to impaired brain and motor function, Alzheimer’s, dementia, heart disease and genetic defects.Continue Reading
Zeolite has been used in traditional medicine throughout Asia for centuries, known for its ability to detoxify the body and support its natural state of balance.
And in the west, scientific evidence and mounting personal reports both indicate that consuming liquid zeolite can truly benefit your health.
But like most ‘alternative’ remedies, zeolite’s properties are not widely understood. So today I’m going to answer the most common questions I hear about liquid zeolite. Hopefully I can raise the public’s awareness of its benefits and dispel a few myths along the way.Continue Reading

Acid/alkaline balance. By now many of us have heard of it, some of us have a good understanding of it, and we may even know a few things about how we can try and bring our pH back into balance.
Here I will discuss firstly the basics of how our pH gets out of balance,and what we can do about it. I will also teach you a simple cost effective way to measure it.
Your body is designed so that the blood pH stays between 7.35-7.45. This represents the normal range of blood pH according to Dr Ben Kim. Your body achieves this through three mechanisms.Continue Reading

Fukushima may soon become the greatest environmental disaster site the world has ever seen. If the more than 1300 fuel rods from the badly damaged reactor 4 fuel pool, that is perched 100 feet in the air, are not brought to the ground with absolute precision it could spew out the radiation equivalent of more than 15,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs. The pool rests on a badly damaged building that could easily come down in the next earthquake, if not on its own.
Spent fuel must be kept under water because each rod is coated with zirconium alloy, which will spontaneously ignite if exposed to air.Continue Reading

By now most of us have heard about the hundreds of benefits of coconut oil, and you may have also heard of the incredible detoxing power of pure liquid Zeolite. You must have also heard about the destruction that the Fukushima nuclear disaster is causing world wide, with Hypothyroidism in infants increasing by 26% in California in the 9 months following Fukushima compared with the previous year.
Although officials continue to downplay the extent of the disaster, many are (re)turning to the proven medicinal properties of natural substances like coconut and zeolite to help them maintain good thyroid health (among other things) amid rising levels of environmental radiation in the wake of Fukushima.
Here are some simple and natural things you can do to keep your thyroid in optimum condition.Continue Reading
