(NaturalNews) While reading Blinded by Science, an amazing book that you can download for free on the internet at http://www.blindedbyscience.co.uk/ until April 30, 2011, I realized that most of the work I’ve done for the past 30 years has been ignored by science. I beat my head against the brick wall of medical and scientific complacency because people continue to suffer from the following conditions, and the best that doctors can do is offer them tranquilizers!

1. Yeast overgrowth
2. Magnesium deficiency
3. IBS caused by poor diet and lifestyle
4. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
5. Undiagnosed hypothyroidism
6. Underdiagnosed Adrenal fatigue
7. Heavy metal toxicity

In this article I focus on…

Yeast Overgrowth

I studied yeast overgrowth after medical school during my naturopathic training. It made sense to me that people who take antibiotics kill off good bacteria as well as bad bacteria and set up an hospitable environment for yeast to overgrow. But for some reason, medicine chooses to ignore yeast overgrowth.

Candida albicans is a fungus living in our intestines that produces 180 chemical toxins that can be absorbed through the intestines into the blood. Just think of what 180 toxins can do to your immune system. Any “foreign chemical” in the blood stream will create an inflammatory reaction that can be measured by various blood tests. These toxins are capable of making you feel dizzy and fatigued, shutting down your thyroid, throwing your hormones off balance, causing you to gain weight and crave sugar and alcohol. It’s associated with PMS, loss of libido, painful intercourse, infertility, numbness, tingling, MS, Crohn’s, colitis, IBS, acne, Lupus, insomnia, drowsiness, white tongue, breath bad, body odor, sinusitis, bruising, sore throat, bronchitis, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, spots in front of eyes, and dozens more symptoms.

Medicine, by ignoring yeast overgrowth and just thinking it’s a pesky vaginitis, doesn’t realize how deeply yeast is involved with our current epidemic of inflammation.

Inflammation is a ‘hot’ topic. An Internet search on the word turned up an overwhelming 43.4 million hits. Journals of inflammation, inflammation research associations, and drug companies are all scrambling to find a drug to treat this scourge. Inflammation is the body’s first defense against infection, but when it goes awry, it can lead to heart attacks, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s and a host of other diseases.

Study: Legalizing Medical Marijuana Leads to Fewer Prescription Drug Overdose Deaths

Study: Legalizing Medical Marijuana Leads to Fewer Prescription Drug Overdose Deaths

Pin It

A study published in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine on Monday found that states that had legalized medical marijuana had seen a 25 percent drop in deaths related to prescription drug overdoses.

According to ABC News, the researchers conducting the study found that because “legalizing medical marijuana makes it more available to chronic pain patients, it provides a potentially less lethal alternative to pain control on a long-term basis.”

Over the course of the study, the states studied were the ones that allowed access to medical marijuana. The Washington Post reported that those states “had 1,729 fewer overdose deaths in 2010 than would be predicted by trends in states without such laws.”

Dr. Marcus Bachhuber, a physician and researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, and the lead author of the study, told ABC News that while he did expect to see changes among the states that legalized medical marijuana, he found it “surprising that the difference is so big.”

Unapproved but Effective Cancer Cures

Unapproved but Effective Cancer Cures

The conventional cancer treatment system and the pharmaceutical companies that control it are dedicated to limiting the development of all other forms of cancer treatment. They have a chokehold on the development of alternative treatments, and they ruthlessly work together with the US FDA and various US government cancer research funding agencies to prevent new treatments from being approved for use by physicians. The reason is that most alternative cancer treatments are much less expensive than surgery, radiation, and chemo. They are also more effective and have many fewer (if any) unwanted side effects.

The great fear of the pharmaceutical industry, and the vast cancer treatment system that it controls, is that a non-patentable and inexpensive cure for cancer might put them out of business. Sadly, these organizations exist to turn a profit from cancer treatment, which is measured in the billions of dollars every year. They are in the business of treating cancer not curing it.

Alternative treatments for cancer have a history of curing cancer and it is this fact that big pharma wants to hide from the American public. Historically, many successful approaches have been developed for curing cancer. We give a review of many of the most popular ones here.

Report: FDA Deliberately Deceptive – Poisoning Millions of Americans

Report: FDA Deliberately Deceptive – Poisoning Millions of Americans

US consumers are in dark about mercury in dental products—and they are kept there deliberately by the government. This is documented in a new report being released this week by Consumers for Dental Choice called “Measurably Misleading: Evidence the FDA and Dental Industry are Deliberately Deceiving American Families about Mercury Dental Fillings and Why That Now Has International Consequences.”

Mercury is a known neurotoxin, yet mercury fillings presents one of the largest consumer consumption of mercury worldwide, and dental amalgam represents the largest use of mercury in consumer products in the US. We’ve also been kept in in the dark about mercury in other consumer products because of the FDA. Thimerosal, a mercury compound often found in flu vaccines, is being ignored as a danger.

Detox Your Liver with Homemade Lemon Water

Detox Your Liver with Homemade Lemon Water

One of the drinks I routinely make for myself and my family in the mornings is lemon water. Not to be confused with “lemonade,” a sweetened beverage, lemon water is a detoxifying health drink consisting of nothing but one whole lemon and warm water.

Much of the research on lemon water’s ability to detoxify the liver is centered around the antioxidant D-Limonene, which is more concentrated in the peel of the lemon. D-limonene has been shown to activate enzymes in the liver that lead to detoxification. It has also been shown to treat cancer.

The Healing Properties of Clove Essential Oil

The Healing Properties of Clove Essential Oil

The ancient texts all seem to agree on the many therapeutic properties of clove – it is a stimulant and has stomachic, expectorant, sedative, carminative, antispasmodic and digestive qualities. It helps flatulence, stimulates digestion and restores appetite, so is good for convalescence. It is a general tonic for both physical and intellectual weakness; and for those suffering from frigidity.

Its principal therapeutic value, though, is antiseptic because of the high proportion of eugenol. This is used for intestinal parasites, and for prevention of virus infections. It is good for the immune system, and particularly effective in mouth and tooth infections.

Here is a review of some of scientific studies published around the world regarding the healing properties of clove essential oil.
