Alternative Health looks at alternative ways of treating illness apart from the medical system.
I’m really happy to let you know that a very interesting case report and review of mine has just been published in a highly indexed peer review journal. It’s entitled "Remission of aggressive autoimmune disease (dermatomyositis) with removal of infective jaw pathology and ozone therapy: review and case report." This paper details a man with severe and life threatening autoimmune disease unresponsive to 4 toxic immunosuppressive drugs, including massive doses of prednisone. I evaluated him differently than conventional doctors would do. His disease, “dermatomyositis” is a description only, telling you it involves inflammation of the skin and muscles. Conventional medicine stops there and treats with powerful and possibly crippling drugs. The integrative doctor looks for causes. I found causes in his mouth/jaw: hidden and asymptomatic infection. Find the cause and the patient can be relieved of disease without a lifetime, and life shortening concoction of poisonous drugs. This is an interesting case report and review of the dental connection to disease, and ozone therapy as a modulator of inflammation. His immunosuppressive drugs were taking him down. Ozone therapy kept him actually productive and working despite his life threatening disease process. Please look at the photos of this patient before and after. Extremely powerful visual story.
A study published June 15, 2018, goes beyond anecdotal experiences or theories that indicate vitamin D offers immune boosting protection against minor diseases such as colds, flues, and other respiratory diseases. It also offers protection against cancer. There have been other studies demonstrating vitamin D’s ability to protect against different cancers in the past. This latest study focused on breast cancer, which afflicts women more than any other cancer. The bulk of its focus centered on what serum levels of vitamin D did the most to prevent breast cancer.
Candida is a naturally occurring, yet “opportunistic” fungus. With the right conditions, there’s no limit to where it will spread and, when rampant, it can cause intense sugar cravings, brain fog, bloating, depression, anxiety, digestive issues, low energy or worse… chronic diseases! Even though candida is an important part of your digestive process, if unchecked, it can cause serious damage to your health. Certain lifestyle choices and/or illness can deplete the “good” bacteria in your body to create room for candida growth. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely difficult to test for and diagnose — that’s why we’ve created this important summit. It begins July 9th.
With their great safety profile and excellent health benefits, it isn’t surprising that one third of women who use hormone therapy choose estriol and other safe, effective, and natural bioidentical hormones to manage the symptoms of menopause. Unfortunately, the FDA is poised to remove access to these hormones and to leave ailing women with no other option but more dangerous alternatives. ANH-USA is leading the charge to protect these crucial hormones, but we need your help to enlist members of Congress to get the FDA to back off.

There are and have been a few major pro-marijuana bills introduced on the Congressional floor of Capitol Hill over the past several months. Some have been stalled, but an important one remains viable with bi-partisan support, and President Trump has mentioned that he'd probably sign it. This bill would eliminate the constant haggling of including the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment, which comes under threat each year from being included in the annual spending federal spending bill. This amendment prohibits the Justice Department from using federal funds for intervening in state-approved medical cannabis activities under cover of federal laws superseding state laws. Earlier in 2017, Department of Justice (DOJ) head U.S. Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions pressured Congressional leaders to not include the amendment. This would allow the DOJ to unleash an uninhibited DEA open season for cracking down on all cannabis use regardless of state laws and its medical applications. The Roherbacher-Blunenauer protective amendment finally went through recently this year despite being blocked from being voted for on the House Floor even with bipartisan support in the House and Senate. Unfortunately, bills can be killed in legislative committees without going to a vote. However, this new bill would finally grant total states' rights to cannabis by federal law without having to be haggled over every year when the national budget bill comes up for discussion.
The results of a 10,000 plus breast cancer patient prospective (follow-up) study demonstrated that many women can refuse chemotherapy without lowering their survival risk. Dr. Robert Rowen commented on the study via his Facebook page: "This will be significant for some 70,000 American women who otherwise would be placed in a locked train to chemotherapy land. I can't tell you how many women I've seen who were told, immediately after the positive biopsy, that they must get chemotherapy. And they truly suffered." This study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine the same day it was announced at an American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago, June 18, 2018, where Dr. Kathy Albain announced: "With results of this groundbreaking study, we now can safely avoid chemotherapy in about 70 percent of patients who are diagnosed with the most common form of breast cancer. For countless women and their doctors, the days of uncertainty are over."
A recent meta-analysis—a review of over 100 different randomized controlled trials—found that multivitamins, vitamin D, calcium, and vitamin C showed no benefits in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, stroke, or premature death but did find benefits for B-vitamins in preventing stroke. Despite glaring issues with the analysis, and positive findings regarding the benefits of supplements notwithstanding (not only in this meta-analysis but in a number of others), the media is replete with headlines such as “Yet Another Study Says Vitamin Supplements Are Worthless.” This reporting evidences the media’s penchant to twist the facts to fit a particular narrative about supplements—one which benefits drug companies that spend billions on advertising each year. The drug industry, along with the biased media and federal agencies they exert influence over, is undermining cheap, safe, and effective natural medicine in the hope that they can sell us more of their synthetic, ineffective, expensive drugs. We cannot let them succeed.
Your indoor air should be cleaner than outdoors, unless you live in a remote, pristine, heavily-wooded or coastline area. But for most of us, that's not the case. And most of us spend much more time indoors than outdoors thinking we're safe from the pollution of vehicular traffic, aircraft aerosol spraying, and industrial pollution. Most people don't think in terms of indoor pollution. But due to modern construction and insulation materials demanded for better energy conservation, chemically-laced furnishing and carpeting, stored toxic cleaning materials, and other particulates brought indoors into dwellings that are airtight, recycled air for cooling and heating tends to accumulate an invisible cloud of toxic pollution indoors. The toxic chemicals “off-gas” or release their vapors into indoor environments that are poorly ventilated with fresh air. In addition to chemical and particulate pollution, oxygen is diminished by the necessary practice of breathing without outdoor air circulating. The air inside your home or office can be worse than outside air. Since most of us spend the bulk of our time indoors, it would be wise to ensure our inside air is as healthy as possible. The amount and extent of indoor air toxins are surprisingly high. But there are ways of purifying your indoor air and protecting against those indoor airborne toxins.
I have been practicing holistic medicine for nearly 25 years. Among all the items I have found successful, one stands head and shoulders above rest: iodine. Iodine is one of the most fascinating essential elements. After checking thousands of patients (along with my partners), I can state with confidence that the vast majority of our population is iodine-deficient. Sadly, most are severely iodine deficient. The consequences of iodine deficiency are severe and include cancer and diseases of the glandular tissues including the breast, ovary, uterus, prostate, pancreas, and thyroid. Iodine is also necessary for a fetus to develop normally. It is well-known and accepted that iodine deficiency in a pregnant woman can result in a lowered IQ in her child. Researchers in England examined the relationship between maternal preconception (before the child is conceived) iodine status and their offspring’s cognitive function (IQ level) at age 6-7 years.
