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

Johnson & Johnson Ends Sale of Talc-Based Baby Powders – Major Win for Consumers

EWG today welcomed the news that Johnson & Johnson will soon end the sale of talc-based baby powders in the U.S. and Canada, and called on other cosmetic companies to end the use of talc in other loose powders. “It’s good news that Johnson & Johnson will soon end the sale of talc-based baby powders in the U.S. and Canada,” said Scott Faber, EWG’s senior vice president for government affairs. “Now other companies need to follow their lead.”

Tennessee City Joins Growing List of Communities Opposing 5G Installations

People worldwide – including elected officials – are opposed to 5G being installed in their communities because of risks to biological health, cybersecurity, environmental health, privacy, safety, and more.  Many cities and countries have taken action including banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions, etc.  This now includes Farragut, TN. Farragut Tennessee has approved a resolution calling on state and federal governments to halt 5G until health risks are evaluated by “sound science.”  The resolution details how FCC limits are outdated and considered inadequate to protect human health by many scientists. The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is supposed to protect Americans by regulating the telecom history.  Despite opposition and warnings, they are using the pandemic as an excuse to speed up 5G installation.  This includes launching tens of thousands of satellites with millions of antennas to blast 5G and WiFi at us from space.  Lawsuits have been filed against them for NOT protecting Americans from unsafe levels of radiation and 5G.

As Drugs Fail, Natural Solutions to COVID-19 Ignored by Government

Many COVID drugs are failing. Natural medicine may hold the key—but can government cronyism be overcome? A large analysis has found that antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine had no benefit for COVID patients, causing more deaths than standard care. Other pharmaceutical treatments are also turning out to be useless. Emerging evidence suggests that natural medicines like zinc, quercetin, and potassium could help, sometimes in conjunction with drugs, but the government refuses to acknowledge these benefits because nutrients aren’t as profitable for drug companies. While hydroxychloroquine may be ineffective on its own, there are trials that have combined the drug with zinc. Zinc inhibits viral activity, but it is difficult to get high levels of zinc into cells. Hydroxychloroquine may help by aiding zinc’s entry into cells. Studies show quercetin may also do what chloroquine does with zinc but without toxic side effects. Some researchers believe that zinc in general is one of the most important things we can take both to avoid Covid-19 infection and treat it. Hydroxychloroquine comes with the usual laundry list of dangerous side effects, while quercetin could help prevent heart damage along with many other benefits. Research indicates that many other natural medicines could help prevent or treat COVID-19.

Healing Power of Light: Why Viruses Thrive in Winter but Not Summer

The COVID-19 situation has drawn the attention of the world to the subject of "viruses." What are viruses, how does one treat them, and other such questions are highly controversial with very many different viewpoints. One fact that seems to be agreed upon by everyone, is that viruses, at least the kind of "influenza" type of viruses that are seasonal, are a problem in the winter months, but not so much during the summer months. Since daylight hours are extended during the summer, most of the research on this topic has surrounded Vitamin D, a vitamin best obtained from the sun. But there is much more to this topic of "light," and its effect on human health, than just Vitamin D. Given how much attention has been given to the "coronavirus" topic, it is time to look at this issue more closely to see if there are factors during the shorter daylight winter times that can be studied and understood to improve our health during this time, without always looking for a drug or vaccine to cure everything. So I assigned this topic to Health Impact News independent researcher and writer Crystal Lauer. She took over a month to research the topic. During that time, President Trump and a team of researchers working with William Bryan in the Science and Technology division of the Department of Homeland Security, announced results of some their own studies within their laboratory looking at the effects of "solar radiation" and its effect on the Coronavirus, which seems to confirm that some of the research presented in this article may apply to COVID-19. Of course, since this is a preventive measure with no patented drugs involved, the studies were quickly condemned by the medical industry, and an off comment made about disinfectants was what the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media decided to focus on instead. While Crystal was hesitant at first to spend so much time researching this topic, being a busy homeschool mother, in the end she reported that based on her research, her family made some big changes to their lifestyles to take better advantage of the healing power of natural light, and as a result she reported: "We found that we all are sleeping better, have much more mental energy and are overall feeling far more relaxed, even in the midst of this pandemic."

The War on Cash: Using COVID-19 to Make Sure the Rich Get Richer and Control the Monetary System?

There has been much written lately about how the COVID-19 "pandemic" is being used as an excuse to usher in some kind of national "Medical ID" that could be used as a tool to control our daily activities, and be used as a requirement to do almost everything in society, from buying goods to travel to receiving medical treatment and beyond. Such concerns are certainly legitimate given what we have seen so far in the "war against the invisible enemy" and the government's reaction to this "war." But opportunists taking advantage of the COVID-19 responses who would love to track and control most aspects of your personal life are not simply restricted to a medical ID card. I was recently in a store purchasing some grocery products, and the sign at the checkout said: "Due to the Coronavirus situation we are no longer accepting cash." This may seen like a minor inconvenience to most people, but Attorney James Rickards, an American lawyer, economist, and investment banker with 35 years of experience working in capital markets on Wall Street, has been warning about the "War on Cash" for years now. When the flow of cash is limited to digital money and the approval of banks, near total control of the population is much more easily accomplished.

Michigan Doctor Raided by FBI and Arrested for Treating COVID19 Patients with Vitamin C

As we have previously reported here at Health Impact News, doctors all across the world have seen great success in treating COVID-19 patients with high-dose intravenous Vitamin C therapy. When we first reported on doctors doing this in China just after the Wuhan outbreak, Facebook tagged us as "Fake News" and took away our ability to advertise and boost any of our articles. Since that time, we have reported on how many doctors and hospitals here in the U.S. have also successfully used the treatment. Now, a doctor in Michigan has actually had his clinic raided by the FBI and arrested being accused of "committing health care fraud and conspiracy to commit health care fraud" because he treated his patients with Vitamin C.

Does 5G Make Us More Susceptible to Coronavirus Infection?

Many have raised questions about whether there is a connection between 5G and this pandemic. In some ways, the connection between COVID-19 and 5G is a moot issue. In other ways, it's not. Either way, it's tangential to what you need to do now to protect yourself and your family from here on out. At the time of this interview, which took place March 31, 2020, a vast majority of those who have died from COVID-19 were elderly. Those who died in China and Italy under the age of 50 have generally been encumbered with obesity, diabetes and hypertension, with insulin resistance being the common denominator. Very few under the age of 19 are affected. That said, the infection appears to be more aggressive than influenza in older individuals, and the illness lasts longer than the regular flu. So, there's enhanced virulence to this virus for some reason we yet do not understand. While unproven, one current theory is that EMF radiation — and the addition of 5G in particular — could be having an impact.

After Seeing Great Success, Spain Approves Ozone Therapy for COVID19 Patients

The Nuestra Señora del Rosario Polyclinica in Ibiza is the first in Spain to use the Ozone technique in treating Covid-19 patients, with success. In a press release the clinic said: “Many patients who were about to be intubated and connected to mechanical ventilation have, thanks to ozone therapy, not only avoided it but improved to the point of not requiring oxygen with just a few treatment sessions.” The clinic also stated that they are seeing improvements in patients after just ‘2 or 3 treatment sessions’. Ozone therapy has the benefit of improving oxygenation at the tissue level and therefore reduces the inflammatory response suffered by patients. At the Santa María della Misericordia University Hospital in Udine, Italy, 36 patients with Covid-19 pneumonia who had respiratory failure were administered Ozone therapy. Only 3% required intubation compared to the usual 15%. There is a high mortality of intubated patients and given a fifth were spared intubation; it is an achievement to highlight. There are also four clinical trials underway in China and the provisional results could not be more hopeful. “In Spain, only we have begun to administer it with the mandatory authorisation of the Quality Committee of the hospital centre, and the results have been spectacular,” says Dr. Alberto Hernández, Assistant Physician for Anaesthesia and Resuscitation at the Nuestra Señora del Rosario Polyclinic in Ibiza. “We have registered a clinical trial, but we need to tell the world that Ozone is a very effective and beneficial therapy in these patients and that we must immediately incorporate it into the treatment of these patients.” Dr. José Baeza, President of the Spanish Society of Ozone Therapy and Vice President of the World Federation of Ozone Therapy, states that: “Given the absence of an effective treatment or a vaccine and in the context of the current health emergency, all hospitalised patients should receive Ozone therapy as the clear benefit is evident, and Ozone therapy has no significant side effects.”

Licorice Inhibits Replication of Coronavirus

During the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and hygiene seem to be having some effect on "flattening the curve" and slowing the spread of the virus. The use of ultraviolet (UV) light to decontaminate medical facilities, proper hand-washing and disinfectants, equipment and even protective facemasks also seems to be useful. But people will still contract COVID-19, and effective treatments are lacking and needed. That’s why some scientific studies are looking at a natural product that has long been known to have antiviral effects1 – glycyrrhizin, the major active constituent in licorice root. Glycyrrhizin was valued in ancient Arabia and Greece for treating coughs and in China for relieving irritation of the mucous membranes. In modern times, glycyrrhizin has been shown to be a formidable antiviral, fighting herpes, HIV, hepatitis, influenza, encephalitis and pneumonia as well as less known viruses like respiratory syncytial virus, arboviruses, vaccinia virus and vesicular stomatitis virus. Still, it’s glycyrrhizin's effectiveness against SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) that has scientists hoping this important natural substance may be a tool against COVID-19.

Michigan Holistic Physician Group Report: 85 COVID Patients Treated – ZERO Hospitalizations and NO Deaths

There has been a debate going on in healthcare for more than 100 years. It started in the 1800s when two competing points of view were put forward to explain disease, and the cause of disease. French medical scientist Louis Pasteur wrote on the "germ theory" of disease, while his French contemporary, Antoine Béchamp promoted a theory of "terrain," or sometimes referred to as the "cellular theory." An objective, critical review of each theory can find some merit to each approach. For example, Pasteur's work on unseen germs led to a change in practice for surgeons of the day, and many credit the work of Scottish doctor Joseph Lister for starting the practice of requiring surgeons to wash and disinfect their hands prior to surgery. Hospital-induced infections such as sepsis dropped so dramatically, that the practice of sterilization spread to surgical equipment as well. But as an overall model for disease and health, many feel that Pasteur's germ theory of disease overstates things in a reductionist sort of way that misses much in disease treatment. Holistic doctors today who supplement their medical training based mostly on the germ theory of disease, tend to follow the work originally put forth by Béchamp that the "terrian," more commonly referred to today as the body's "immune system," is much more important and effective in treating or curing disease. The evidence to support this theory is that pathogens affect everyone differently, not the same. Even during some of the most deadly recorded "plagues" or "pandemics" in history, some people succumbed, while others did not. Usually those who survived far outnumber those who died, leading to the theory that the immune system is the key factor in not only fighting disease, but preventing it in the first place. Of course today's medical system is NOT focused on prevention by building up the body's immune system, as there is no profit from that. Today's multi-TRILLION dollar medical industry needs sick patients to treat to remain economically viable. Well patients don't provide the same profit. But just as Dr. Joseph Lister put into practice Pastuer's theory of germs with great success in reducing hospital deaths, which might be great for preventing the deaths of patients already sick and is more of a "hygiene" protocol than a health protocol, so too many physicians today are putting into practice methods that more closely follow Béchamp's theories by bolstering the body's immune system with great success in treating disease. One such doctor that we have featured many times here on Health Impact News, is Dr. David Brownstein from the Center For Holistic Medicine in Michigan. Dr. Brownstein has just published a report where he is claiming that his clinic has treated 85 patients for COVID-19 and that none of them have died, and none of them had to be hospitalized. He has also video recorded some of their testimonies. So what treatment protocols did Dr. Brownstein use for this kind of success rate?
