Alternative Health looks at alternative ways of treating illness apart from the medical system.

Study: Hormone-altering Chemicals Linked to Neurological Disorders in Children

Exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals is likely leading to an increased risk of serious health problems costing at least $175 billion (U.S.) per year in Europe alone, according to a study published recently. Chemicals that can mimic or block estrogen or other hormones are commonly found in thousands of products around the world, including plastics, pesticides, furniture, and cosmetics. The biggest estimated costs, by far, were associated with chemicals' reported effects on children's developing brains.

20 Health Benefits of Thyme Oil

Thyme is an incredibly potent yet simple herb affecting multiple systems in the body and capable of treating dozens of diseases. It contains one of the strongest antioxidants known and is proven to kill 98% of breast cancer cells. Oil of thyme is derived from thyme, also known as Thymus vulgaris. The perennial herb, a member of the mint family, is used in aromatherapy, cooking, potpourri, mouthwashes, and elixirs, as well as added to ointments. Thyme also has a number of medicinal properties, which is due to the herb’s essential oils. The benefits of thyme essential oil have been recognized for thousands of years.

Will Google Restrict Search Results for Natural Health?

For years, Wikipedia has been a prime source of misinformation (or perhaps disinformation) about natural health. Now we worry about what Google is up to. The company is working on a new ranking system based on “truthfulness.” A site with more “incorrect” facts would rank lower than a site that is deemed more credible or trustworthy.

Smart Meter Scandal in California? Emails Reveal CPUC May Have Known and Concealed Health Risks and Other Problems

Josh Hart of Stop Smart Meters! is reporting that former California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) President Michael Peevey is currently the subject of a criminal probe by the U.S. Attorney and State Attorney General who are investigating allegations of bribery and corruption. CPUC allegedly assured the public that California's smart meters were accurate, were no fire hazard, and no threat to health. However, research into more than 120,000 e-mails and memos between CPUC and Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) seems to paint quite a different picture.

How Homeopathy is Healing Autism

We know that autism can be healed, because we have seen the evidence of recovered lives. We know how autistic children feel, because recovered autistic children have been able to tell us how it felt. They have been able to describe their experiences after their lives were restored to normal through homeopathy. The Houston Homeopathy Method has freed over 100 children from their autism. These children have experienced complete recovery. The Houston Homeopathy Method has also given relief from the most severe symptoms of autism to countless other children who are now able to live pain free lives with much improved social skills.

Healing from Vaccine Injuries through Homeopathy

There are treatments that can heal vaccine damage, but few physicians in the conventional medical care system know about them, since vaccine injuries are usually denied as the cause of any illness. Some parents with autistic children report that homeopathy has completely reversed their children’s autism and healed other serious health conditions caused by vaccines. This article explains how homeopathic remedies can bring about healing for many types of vaccine injuries. Homeopathy is not the only treatment that has helped children and adults recover from vaccine damage, but it is the one that is the focus of this article. I will describe how homeopathy can bring about a true cure for the harm that vaccines have caused to children and adults. The National Vaccine Information Center states a very sobering fact about vaccines: “Every vaccine recommended for use by government and doctors has been associated with hospitalizations, injuries and deaths. There is no guarantee that a particular vaccine will be safe to give to a particular individual and will not result in permanent injury or death.”

Aluminum, Fluoride, and Glyphosate—A Toxic Trifecta Implicated in Autism and Alzheimer’s Disease

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin, and according to Professor Christopher Exley of Keele University, aluminum-containing products are likely fueling the rise in Alzheimer's disease. People with aluminum toxicity display many of the same symptoms as those with dementia, Parkinson’s, ADHD, autism, and other neurological diseases, and mounting evidence suggests aluminum may play a significant role in the development of those (and other) diseases. Other toxins to beware of include fluoride and glyphosate. All of these are toxic in their own right, but research suggests they may be even more hazardous in combination.

“Dirty” Electricity is a National Problem Affecting Everyone’s Health in the United States

Electricity is a part of all of our lives today, and we seldom give much thought to it unless it is not there when we expect it to be. Unfortunately, modern electricity, which has made our lives so much easier in so many ways, is also a well-documented health hazard. Very few people today fully understand this very real danger outside and inside all of our homes that affects our health. From "stray voltage" to "dirty electricity," your health is affected one way or another by electricity every day. Understanding how it harms your health is the first step to minimizing its harmful effects, and perhaps even overcoming health challenges you have not been able to figure out yet. High frequency voltage transients in our electrical wiring have been linked to many modern diseases and health conditions: Attention Deficit Disorder, asthma, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, miscarriages, infertility, depression, suicide, and cancer have been shown to increase with long-term exposure to high frequency voltage transients.

Blueberries Outperforming Pharmaceuticals In Reducing Blood Pressure

Blueberries have been championed for their high antioxidant potential and anti-inflammatory properties. They are recognized as a good source of flavonoids, especially anthocyanins, which have strong antioxidative activity, some of which have antioxidant activity shown in laboratory studies. New research shows they can reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and potentially better than pharmaceuticals.

Tomato Juice Reduces Inflammation

A daily glass of tomato juice is known to significantly lower cardiovascular disease, cancer and even osteoporosis. A new study from Taiwan is now showing that it also has a direct effect on waist circumference, cholesterol, and markers of inflammation in women.
