Vitamin D More Effective than Pharmaceutical Drugs in Treating Herpes Virus

Half of teens and adults under the age of 50 are infected with the oral herpes virus, and one in eight has genital herpes. Despite the prevalence of herpes, public health authorities ignore a cheap, safe, and effective treatment for this common infection, and instead rely on expensive medicines that do not treat the underlying problem. This, unfortunately, is par for the course in our crony health system. Everywhere you look, conventional medicine is singing the same tune: the Mayo Clinic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Institutes of Health all say that even though there is no cure for herpes, the best way to prevent or treat the symptoms is with antiviral medications like acyclovir (sold under the trade name Zovirax), famciclovir (Famvir), or valacyclovir (Valtrex). There is even a herpes vaccine in development—although the FDA has launched a criminal investigation into the (now deceased) lead researcher, who allegedly injected his experimental vaccine into human subjects without following safety protocols. But conventional medicine ignores the obvious natural prescription: get a vitamin D test! It is yet another example of a cheap, safe, and effective medicine that is effectively barred in today’s crony medical system. If it can’t make money for drug companies, the crony medical establishment will have nothing to do with it.

Study: Baking Soda Anti-inflammatory – Daily Dose May Fight Autoimmune Diseases

There was a time, decades ago, when doctors would prescribe bicarbonate of soda, aka baking soda, mixed with water to patients suffering from influenza or other temporary ills. Now its efficacious use is known by only a handful of holistic medical practitioners. Though not part of the medical establishment's “standard of care,” which if not followed can result in an MD’s loss of license to practice, bicarbonate of soda has been used by paramedics and ER attendants for extreme emergencies. A handful of MDs have even discretely used it on kidney patients to augment or avoid dialysis. Now a medical study has reported indications of dampening inflammation that bring on autoimmune diseases. The study was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Immunology in April of 2018 to confirm the hypothesis that bicarbonate of soda does have medical merit, and can be a simple cure to autoimmune diseases.

American Doctor Kicked out of Africa for Healing Ebola with Ozone Therapy Instrumental in Creating International “Ozone Without Borders”

In April 2018, a non-profit humanitarian international NGO (non-government organization) was formed called Ozone Without Borders (OWB). This newly formed NGO has ozone and other oxygen therapies as its cornerstone for educating about and applying non-pharmaceutical treatments without discrimination from medical monopoly agents. American Dr. Robert Rowen, an ozone therapy specialist, was instrumental in the organization's formation. In October of 2014, Dr. Rowen and his colleague, Dr. Howard Robins gathered up donated medical ozone producing equipment and headed into the internationally highly-publicized epicenter of an Ebola breakout, Sierra Leone, a small nation on the western coast of Africa, at their own risk and cost. He immediately sought to train some of the local doctors treating Ebola victims. A few had already become infected themselves, and they were the first to be offered ozone therapies. Immediate positive results were observed within 48 hours. Three victims with confirmed to have recovered completely and an infected fourth who was asymptomatic did not succumb to the disease. Despite these early successes, the Sierra Leone Minister of Health decreed the Rowen/Robins project be halted, and condemned some of the doctors. Apparently, inexpensive and effective ozone therapy which cannot be patented was a threat to Big Pharma and their desire to develop Ebola drugs and vaccines. They were ordered not to treat patients anywhere in Africa. As a result, in what Dr. Rowen claims was a "crime against humanity", many people died.

British Cardiologist: Big Food and Big Pharma are Killing Millions of People

Dr. Aseem Malhotra spoke to the European Parliament, at the invitation of Nathan Gill MEP for Wales. Dr. Malhotra invited top leaders in European Medicine to expose “how Big Food and Big Pharma are killing millions of people.” Dr. Aseem Malhotra, an internationally renowned UK cardiologist and author of the Pioppi Diet, argued the case for lifestyle medicine and explaining why lawmakers need to change EU health policy. “Prescribed medications are estimated to be the third biggest killer, after heart disease and cancer. Bad Pharma sees millions taking drugs they don’t need – destroying their lives! For years public health advice across Europe has got it dangerously wrong,” Dr. Malhotra states. Dr. Malhotra states: “With global health systems forecast to collapse in the next few years, two things are driving ever-increasing demand: The escalating burden of chronic disease, caused by entirely preventable lifestyle illnesses, and over-treatment, seeing millions taking drugs and undergoing surgeries that will provide zero benefit and as a result costing national economies billions.”

Infrared Light and Saunas: Healing Many Illnesses

Sweat lodges, dry saunas, and wet saunas (steam) have been used for healing and detoxing for several centuries. While exposing one’s body to heat over an extended period of time, the activity of fever takes place, stimulating the immune system to release white blood cells to kill pathogenic microbes or destroy cancer tumor cells. Exposing heat to the body over an extended period of time produces profuse sweating that can transport toxins out of the body. Over time, the practice of sauna bathing can even eliminate toxins and drugs trapped in lipid tissue (fat) for years. Both functions of body heat is why more and more health practitioners are realizing that wrapping up and “sweating out” a bout of fever up to but not beyond 104 degrees Fahrenheit is more beneficial than suppressing it with pharmaceuticals. Many of us can’t cope with extended dry or wet sauna visits and some of us can’t even access them. But there is a solution for easily obtaining the same results without the agony of enduring intense ambient heat, using infrared technology.

Investment Report Reveals Medical Cures not Profitable for Big Pharma – Sick People Needed to Sustain Drug Sales

A report that made its way through the corporate sponsored "mainstream" media last week demonstrated what those of us in the alternative health media have been publishing for years: Pharmaceutical products which actually cure people are not invested in, simply because it is not a sustainable market when people are cured and no longer need Big Pharma's drugs. Investors cannot afford to invest in such products. Originally reported on CNBC.com, an April 10 report by Goldman Sachs analysts entitled "The Genome Revolution" addressed the question: "Is curing patients a sustainable business model?"

World Health Organization Moving Towards Recommending Cannabis for Medical Purposes

In late December 2017, the WHO (World Health Organization) issued a statement from its Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD): "Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic benefit for seizures due to epilepsy and related conditions. Current evidence also shows that cannabidiol is not likely to be abused or create dependence, such as for other cannabinoids (such as Tetra Hydro Cannabinol (THC), for instance)." Now that the WHO's own Expert Committee on Drug Dependence is heading for a final meeting in June to finalize its decision on CBD and review other whole-plant cannabis products for medical purposes, the FDA has been put into a position where it's forced to conduct a public survey for input on marijuana's medical efficacy and safety.
