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

Phenolic Compounds and Enzymatic Activity in Raw Honey Positively Affect Oxidative Stress and Bone Density

Much of the research available to us today regarding modern-day diseases points to oxidative stress and inflammation. One of the easiest ways to combat this modern-day problem affecting our health is to replace refined sugars in your diet with honey. Let's take a look at how making this one simple change in our diet, to using honey instead of refined sugar, can have tremendous health benefits.

Medical Apartheid: How State Medical Licensing Boards are Silencing Good Doctors Using Effective, Non-Toxic Therapies

The hall was packed with several thousand clinicians, physicians, medical professors, scientific researchers and doctors of non-conventional medical disciplines who were interested in the latest anti-aging research. Marty and I presented a paper based upon a year-long clinical study we had conducted. Following the presentation, a professor at a California medical school asked me to meet privately with some physicians in a separate conference room. I was only anticipating a handful of doctors; therefore I was taken aback to see several hundred MDs and PhDs crammed into the space. The physicians and professors were likely board certified; what they held in common was their inclusion of non-toxic, non-drug therapies in their protocols to treat patients. The professor who invited me had published dozens of papers in peer-reviewed journals, but she was unable to get her own clinical research using alternative medical therapies published. This was despite the fact that there are already tens of thousands of studies in print supporting the scientific basis for what she and thousands of other physicians are doing. What I learned from listening to these doctors' complaints is that they feared speaking out publicly about their personal successes. They worried that they would be attacked and could face interrogation from state medical boards for breaking rank with the status quo. One professor from the University of Chicago's medical school stated that he and his colleagues felt as if they were in held silent in the closet. However, what surprised me was their knowledge about the causes of disease and non-toxic therapies that could reverse them. For the following hours Marty and I listened to in depth conversations for preventing, treating and reversing diseases their colleagues using orthodox protocols were unable to achieve. A California professor made a remark I would never forget. He stated it was almost Orwellian that those of us who are able to use alternative medicine must apologize for the success of our treatments. We are attacked and punished for succeeding while they are rewarded for failing.

Women Turning to Weight Lifting and Resistance Training to Combat Anxiety Disorders

Most of us are familiar with the sensations of fear; the heart racing, mouth drying, stomach churning, dizzying reaction, that occurs when we encounter the unexpected. Fear, in and of itself, is a natural physiological response to real or perceived danger and one that has contributed heavily to the continuation of humanity. Knowing when to run from a physical threat and when to fight, allowed our ancestors to survive immediate dangers in their daily lives and continue to perpetuate the species. The modern landscape we face daily has changed considerably into what we might consider a more civilized, less threatening environment. So why, despite all this advancement, do more than 40 million of us between the ages of 18 and 51 in this country suffer from an anxiety disorder? It can all be so emotionally and physically exhausting. So how many of us have taken up running and resistance training to quell our anxiety? A study done across 8 weeks and involving 42 participants contrasted state anxiety responses, with the results showing a reduction in anxiety symptoms after 50 minutes of either aerobic or resistance training. An added benefit to all this running and lifting comes in the form of exercise-induced endorphins, the body’s natural opioids, which have, until recently, been given all the credit for the infamous “runner’s high,” but an emerging field of research is centering on the endocannabinoid system.

Scientific Evidence Confirms Music Helps Preterm Infants Brains

SWI, the Swiss Information channel, reported that there is scientific evidence that music helps nurture brain development in premature infants. Swiss neuroscientists reported documenting positive effects of specially composed and performed music on developing neural networks of premature babies. The musical selection provided a soothing background of bells, harp, and Indian punji (charming snake flute). Infants in the music exposure group listened to music five times per week. Medical imaging reveals that the neural network of premature babies who have listened to specially composed music strengthens the development of their brain.

Judge Orders British Man Opposing 5G Released from Jail – Attempts to Silence Him Failed

Mark Steele, from England, has been making headlines for telling the truth about the dangers of 5-G. He has been trying to educate the Gateshead community and its Council about the serious risks of 5-G technology. The Gateshead Council approved the installation of new LED street lights, which contain 5-G equipment. This allows 5-G equipment to be hidden in what people would assume to be harmless city lighting – but these new lights are anything but harmless. Mark Steele began to speak out about the risks of this 5-G equipment in the Gateshead community where he lives. The Council objected to his vocal presence and sought to silence him by bringing charges against him and having him arrested. Mark Steele told me what happened: "They sought a full gagging order in the Civil Courts to stop any output about 5G from me. Their claim was I was frightening vulnerable people in the area. This was the civil case, which failed. The Judge demanded that the 5G risk be debated. The Council is still trying to silence me about 5G. However, the problem they have is the Court has sanctioned me to carry on the campaign. The recorder Nolan stated the 'public have a right to know' 'this is democracy in action.'” The 5G system will be a total surveillance system, which will watch everything we do on the streets and in our homes. Nothing will be private – someone will always be watching. And for people who don’t want to become living components of the 5-G network, that same system can potentially be used to punish objectors and resisters by inflicting pain and illness, and if necessary, by terminating their lives.

Proteolytic Enzymes: Effective for Inflammation

Proteolytic enzymes are essentially the regulators and the modulators of the inflammatory response. Enzymes are the catalyst for virtually every chemical reaction in the body. Some experts believe that the body contains upward of 50,000 different enzymes, with more than 3,000 having currently been identified. These enzymes have been compared to specialized keys with each enzyme key fitting a corresponding lock. (The locks being biochemical reactions.) Proteolytic enzymes are a specific group of enzymes whose catalytic function is to sever the bonds between peptides and eventually break them down into amino acids, which are the building blocks of virtually all the cells and tissue that make up the body. According to Nutrition Review, Italian researchers have shown that proteolytic enzymes have the ability to reduce inflammation equal or superior to that of the four steroidal and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs: Phenylbutazone, Hydrocortisone, Indomethacin, and Acetylsalicylic Acid.

FDA Study: Toxic Sunscreen Chemicals Absorbed Into Blood

While there are instances where sunscreen may be prudent, these products are widely overused and contribute to widespread vitamin D deficiency. In my view, sunscreen is rarely needed, provided you’re following sensible sun exposure guidelines to prevent burning. Simply get out of the sun or wear clothing the moment your skin starts to turn light pink. A pilot study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shows four commonly used active ingredients in sunscreen are absorbed into your blood at levels that could potentially pose health risks. The four active ingredients looked in this study were avobenzone, oxybenzone, octocrylene and ecamsule. While it comes as no surprise that toxic chemicals are being absorbed into your blood when applied to your skin, what’s shocking is the FDA’s guidance in light of the results — continue using sunscreen! This, despite the fact that all four chemicals were found to enter the bloodstream at levels above the presumed “safe” level after a single day of application, and remained in the system for at least 24 hours after last use. Just what might the ramifications be if you’re using them every single day, year-round?

How can We Protect Ourselves from 5-G and Nanotechnology?

A conservative 2017 calculation by business research analysists indicate that the nanotechnology market will be a 90.5 billion dollar market by 2021. Another report anticipates nanotechnology growth will reach 173 billion dollars by 2025. Simply put, 5-G is the power source that will enable the nanotechnology that is in our bodies to perform specific tasks. Nano materials have been programmed to assemble and build, but when 5-G is fully enabled and when even higher terahertz frequencies are widely used, then nanotechnology will be able to stimulate neurological activity and emotions, it will also be able to transmit data and receive instructions from 5-G equipment that will be located every hundred feet or so. Those who are envisioning the “smart cities” of the future plan to integrate all our electronic devices and all forms of transportation into a worldwide network controlled through the power of 5-G. Of course, they will not stop there – but will extend the reach of their artificial intelligence (AI) network to human lives. They will seek to turn us all into “smart people.” They will use 5-G to activate and provide energy for the nanotechnology that is in our bodies and brains. They will use this system to control our movements, manage our thoughts, and influence our feelings, with the hope that we will all become “smart people.” The day is coming soon – very soon – when each of us will need to decide whether we are going to be one of the “smart people” who submit to the authority of the “smart city,” or be one of those who reject the “smart” plan and live with a free mind and heart.

With Thousands of Years History Frankincense Health Benefits Being Rediscovered

Before the Magi ever traversed the streets of Bethlehem, bearing chests of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, following a star and in search of the Christ child, before the historian and botanist, Pliny the Elder penned his Naturalis Historia or Alexander the Great conquered Gaza, a venerable substance- in the form of a humble resin- had stretched its influence over religion, medicine and culture alike for thousands of years already. For over 5000 years, frankincense has played an integral part in every aspect of the human story, but for a time it stepped back into the obscurity of history, its value diminished to a footnote in the biblical event of the birth of Jesus; and there it waited to be rediscovered. Essential oils are a very old, new thing. Whether you try an extract for inflammation or cellular health, or an essential oil diffused for heightened cognition and reduced anxiety, or even the essential oil blended in your face cream to support your skin health and retain your youthful appearance, the important thing is that you incorporate the benefits of frankincense into your daily regimen.
