Alternative Health looks at alternative ways of treating illness apart from the medical system.
Los Angeles County Jail for Women: What goes on behind closed doors, locked fences, and steel bars? Should most of these women be in jail, or should they be recognized as victims who were abused and often trafficked? Two former prisoners from LA County Jail for Women were recently interviewed on the National Safe Child Show, with host Tammi Stefano. Meet two woman who experienced horror, including human experimentation. Kay and Jessica decided to speak out as they both were forced to participate in psychological human experimentation. They talk about the women they met in jail, including one woman who was kept in a cage for 10 years prior to her arrest! Is putting these women in jail, many who are forced into drug addiction, "reabusing" them?
DMSO is a well-studied healing compound, but virtually unknown to the public. Why? Technically it’s known as dimethyl sulphoxide, and its physiological properties were accidentally discovered well before its medical applications were researched in the 1960s and publicized in the 1970s. It soon became a controversial cancer treatment or adjunct to chemotherapy that is now mostly suppressed in the USA. Russian scientist Alexander Zaytsev discovered DMSO as an industrial solvent by oxygenating dimethyl sulfide. Yet it was around 100 years later that Dr. Stanley Jacob at the Oregon Health and Science University Medical School discovered highly purified DMSO could penetrate skin and organ membranes without damaging them. Then in the 1970s, even mainstream media was reporting DMSO as a promising safe and highly effective curing agent for several maladies. There were studies demonstrating DMSO’s ability as a powerful adjunct for orthodox chemo therapies and even a promising natural solution for curing cancer by itself. In the 1970s CBS “60 Minutes” aired a feature highlighting the work of Dr. Stanley Jacob. Dr. Jacob earned his Medical Degree from Ohio State University in 1948, graduating cum laude. He also completed a Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School from December 1950 - September 1952. He went on to teach surgery at Harvard Medical School. In 1982 Dr. Jacob was a defendant in a Federal conspiracy trial for allegedly participating in a "scheme to gain Government approval of dimethyl sulfoxide, popularly known as DMSO." The jury was deadlocked and the judge dismissed the case as a "mistrial." But since the publicity in the 1970s and 1980s, interest has waned to the point of inexpensive DMSO's disappearing from even the alternative health movement's webscape. That's unfortunate. Here’s why it’s almost disappeared from public awareness and why it should be brought up again.
Cancer is a $125 BILLION dollar industry that is growing, not declining. The industry is dependent on more cancer patients, not less. A "cure" for cancer would put millions of people out of work, and destroy the U.S. economy. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life, and that percentage will soon be one out of two. With the regime change in American politics about to take place, it appears that the outgoing administration is attempting to empower the pharmaceutical industry, perhaps in an attempt to secure future careers beyond politics. We recently saw evidence of this with the lame-duck Congress passing the 21st Century Cures Act. Outgoing Vice President Joseph Biden recently released the first report of a new government cancer task force, the Cancer Moonshot Task Force. We had investigative health reporter John P. Thomas look into just what this task force entails for the American public, and it appears that it increases cancer spending resulting in more profits for pharmaceutical companies, depends on no cures, and potentially will remove medical privacy and give government power to punish people who do not follow their medical advice.

Polluted drinking water has been making headlines lately. The lead poisoning due to known but ignored faulty filtration from the water works in Flint, Michigan. Even high level state officials had been attempting to cover-up the damage to children for its toxic tap water for years. This was major mainstream news. But it isn’t only Flint’s highly publicized scenario. Several other municipalities have been attempting to cover up similar toxic levels from poor water supply infrastructures. Chlorinating or boiling water doesn’t get rid of chemical or heavy metal pollutants. Now there are reports published showing excess toxic levels of hexavalent chromium 6, also known as the “Erin Brockovich chemical,” a potent carcinogen that causes other debilitating health issues besides cancer in most of our municipal water supplies, affecting over 200 million persons. Anyone desiring to protect their health today must take some steps to ensure one is drinking safe water.
Vitamin D is a steroid hormone produced in your body with the help of cholesterol molecules when you expose significant amounts of skin to the sun. It is an essential vitamin that interacts with a number of different systems in your body. One of the best ways to optimize your vitamin D blood levels is to get sensible sun exposure, taking great care never to get burned. Deficiency is very common in the U.S. but many Americans mistakenly believe they are not at risk simply because they eat foods fortified with vitamin D, such as milk. Before 2000, many physicians had not considered the possibility you could be deficient in vitamin D. A recent paper in Dermato-Endocrinology reviewed the current science for the risks and benefits of sun exposure and found insufficient exposure in the U.S. has become a major public health problem.
The FDA recently issued a rule banning triclosan and more than a dozen other chemicals commonly used in antibacterial soaps. This will affect a large number of products. “If the product makes antibacterial claims, chances are pretty good that it contains one of these ingredients,” according to an FDA spokeswoman. Companies have a year to comply with the new rule. Triclosan is the trade name for 5-Chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy) phenol. It’s manufactured from the same raw material as 2,4-D, a component of the infamous Vietnam-era defoliant, Agent Orange. According to the FDA, antibacterial soaps are no better at preventing infection or illness than washing with soap and water. Advocates of natural health have been saying this for years. Many so-called “germs” are essential to the body’s optimal bacteria balance. They act as probiotics for the gut and skin; are naturally anti-inflammatory; and boost the immune system.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently issued a policy statement explaining that the agency will hold efficacy and safety claims for over-the-counter (OTC) homeopathic drugs to the same standard as claims for other OTC drugs. This means homeopathic OTC products will need to back up claims with “competent and reliable scientific evidence” for health-related claims, or else use certain FDA-approved disclaimers. Here are some examples of acceptable disclaimers, as noted in the FTC’s policy statement: “There is no scientific evidence that the product works,” or “The product’s claims are based only on theories of homeopathy from the 1700s that are not accepted by most modern medical experts.” The FDA is no doubt pulling the strings on this. The most likely motivation of the FTC is that the homeopathic industry is rapidly expanding, which presents a clear threat to pharmaceutical drug company profits, which is enough for the FDA to put homeopathy in its scopes.
There is what many consider a master mineral – magnesium. Why? For starters it is involved with over 300 metabolic processes in our bodies, although one doctor, Dr. Carolyn Dean, believes that number is even higher. Magnesium is a nutrient among nutrients more important than vitamins. Without minerals, vitamin functions are greatly hampered, almost useless. Adding to the importance of magnesium is the fact that magnesium is a co-factor for enzyme activity throughout the body, a case where sometimes both minerals and enzymes are equally important. Magnesium is also a co-factor for the enzyme ATP (adenosine triphosphate) the main source of energy in 100% of cells. It stabilizes membranes and is required for protein production and DNA and RNA production. It’s a co-factor for over 700 and perhaps up to 1,300 enzyme systems, making it the hardest working mineral in the body. Magnesium also regulates the ion channels, determining which minerals - like potassium and calcium - are allowed inside the cells. It’s involved with muscle action and nerve conduction.
