Alternative Health looks at alternative ways of treating illness apart from the medical system.
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?"
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.
Driverless cars are seen as the next big market potential for the automotive industry. But before we get too excited about these driverless cars, we need to carefully consider the many levels of health risks involved with this technology, as well as the loss of privacy. Vehicle crashes and fatalities are minor concerns compared to potential human DNA damage and increased risks of cancer. The microwave radar systems used in driverless cars can project microwave radiation for more than 750 feet in front of the vehicle and a similar distance behind the vehicle. They use a combination of short-range, medium-range, and long-range microwave radar systems at very high frequencies. These frequencies have not been tested to prove they are safe for humans. No safety studies have been done to determine the dangers of constant exposure to multiple microwave frequencies. Driverless cars will require on-board computers and multiple on-board microwave radar systems. They will be tied into the 4G and 5G cell tower system through hotspot technology built into the car. Eventually, this technology will even permit a central traffic control computer to manage traffic flow. These central computers could even be used to slow or speed up vehicles and even stop them if needed. This system will track the activity of every car on the road and even record information about who is driving the vehicles, eliminating any resemblance of privacy about your driving habits and location. Are driverless cars really worth the potential destruction of our health and loss of privacy?
In modern times the broad category of "energy healing" is not very well-known in western culture, which has built a medical system dependent on chemically-based pharmaceutical products. In many cultures, however, various forms of energy healing have existed for thousands of years. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), for example, the science of acupuncture has been known and practiced for thousands of years, and it is also one form of energy medicine known and practiced in western countries today like the U.S. One can even state that the greatest energy healer of all time, Jesus Christ, practiced the purest form of energy healing over 2000 years ago. And his cure rate was 100% - far better than the modern pharmaceutical-based medical system, or even other energy healing modalities. In general, energy healing can be very effective without all the toxic side effects of pharmaceutical drugs. One form of energy healing that is becoming increasingly more popular in the United States is Pulsed Electromagnetic Healing. Most would acknowledge that the rebel scientist Raymond Royal Rife began much of the research and practice in this field in the 1930s, with some amazing results, such as curing cancer. This made him an outcast, of course, as even today "researching a cure for cancer" is a hundred billion dollar plus industry that would disappear if it was acknowledged that there actually are cures for cancer, and the pharmacuetical cartel cannot allow that to happen. It would literally destroy the U.S. economy. I have asked reporter Paul Fassa to cover a bit of the history behind Pulsed Electromagnetic Healing and to survey a bit of the current market choices available to the consumer. What we can NOT do is recommend one device or therapy above the other. We are mostly limited to published data, testimonials, and claims made online, much of it contradictory. When viewing marketing material and testimonials from such devices or therapies, one should be wary of claims such as "this is the ONLY device/therapy on the market affecting health and healing in this area." In fact, the consumer has many choices. Dr. William Pawluk, M.D., M.Sc., who has a website educating people on Pulsed Electromagnetic Healing, probably states it best when he writes: "There are a variety of PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) systems available because there is no one 'best' system. Only when we understand what health issues are of greatest concern to an individual can we begin to determine which system is most likely to achieve the desired results."
When it comes to navigating your health, if that journey includes Hashimoto’s, a thyroid condition, hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, or many other autoimmune conditions as well, such as celiac disease, information simply isn’t enough. You need to have a step-by-step plan. I am Dr. Izabella Wentz, and even having a degree in pharmacology did not save me from years of misdiagnosis by doctors and misinformation from experts. Finding a path out of Hashimoto’s and thyroid illness became my focus (and success story), and finding a way to share everything I discovered became my mission. I have written TWO New York Times best-selling patient guides, launched three companies (including a training for practitioners), and created a line of supplements to support and empower people with thyroid disease to take back their health, and still I knew something was missing. So, I got really centered and began to systemize the steps and summarize all of the solutions that I knew could change lives into one place – I created a PROGRAM to take you from suffering – to celebrating. Because this life is a gift, and helping you to unwrap it with renewed health is my highest privilege.
Lawn chemicals, particularly, ones containing 2,4-D, have been linked to at least two types of canine cancers. Studies found that lawn chemicals travel to neighboring yards and inside homes, and chemicals have been found in the urine of dogs whose owners did not spray their lawns. A six-year study from Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine linked lawn pesticides to canine malignant lymphoma (CML). Based on questionnaire results from dog owners, the study found “specifically, the use of professionally applied pesticides was associated with a significant 70% higher risk of CML. Risk was also higher in those reporting use of self-applied insect growth regulators.”
In June 2017, the CDC reviewed medical records from 894 patients diagnosed with IPF and treated at one clinic from September 1996 to June 2017, looking for those with an occupation of dentist, dental hygienist or dental technician. Nine of the patients, or 1 percent, were dental personnel. Considering the small number of dentists in the U.S. relative to the overall population (0.038 percent in 2016), the fact that they represented nearly 1 percent of patients being treated for IPF at one clinic was noteworthy. In fact, the CDC analysis revealed that the dental workers were 23 times more likely to develop IPF compared to the general population.
Despite BILLIONS of dollars spent on pharmaceutical research, diabetes rates continue to rise. Plus, there are MORE THAN 70 diabetes drugs being prescribed in the U.S. alone — NONE that address the root causes or stops the progression of the disease. What we’re doing now must change, because it isn’t working. With the right education and action, it’s ABSOLUTELY possible to change and save the lives of those on a path toward diabetes. For Dr. Brian Mowll, diabetes is a professional passion. Early in his medical practice, he saw one person after another suffering with diabetes, and all of them frustrated with the mismanagement of their conditions. They were taking drugs to manage blood sugar, but their health kept deteriorating. Dr. Mowll made it his mission to discover the truth about the root causes of type 2 diabetes, and find natural solutions to reverse it, help restore balance and master blood sugar.

An agreement among representatives on both sides of the aisle in the United States House of Representatives has retained the bill that prohibits the Department of Justice (DOJ) from using its allocated funds for DEA interventions in states that allow cannabis for medical purposes. It was included as part of the House final appropriations budget for the fiscal year 2018, which ends September 30, 2018. 62 Congress members from both sides of the aisle have decided to start pushing now for the 2019 inclusion of this protective provision with a letter which included the following: "We believe that the consistent, bipartisan support for such protections against federal enforcement, combined with the fact that similar language has been in place since December 2014, makes a strong case for including similar language in your base FY 2019 appropriations bill." The Marijuana Justice Act, introduced by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), would end the federal prohibition on marijuana once and for all, by removing the drug from the DEA’s list of controlled substances entirely. The Marijuana Justice Act, introduced by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), would end the federal prohibition on marijuana once and for all, by removing the drug from the DEA’s list of controlled substances entirely. It was introduced as Senate bill number S. 1689, but thus far is without co-sponsors. Earlier, Senator Bernie Sanders had attempted to introduce a similar bill with similar results. However, a similar version of S. 1689, H.R. 1227 – Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2017, was introduced into the House of Representatives by Thomas Garrett (R-Vir) and has 15 House co-sponsors. Recently, 14 members of Congress have asked to cut funding for the Drug Enforcement Administration's cannabis eradication program, writing: "Throughout the country, states are increasingly turning away from marijuana prohibition and enacting alternative policies to lower crime rates, free up limited law enforcement resources, and keep drugs out of the hands of children. Despite both the Cannabis Eradication Program’s proven ineffectiveness and the seismic shift in attitudes on marijuana policy within Congress and across our nation, the DEA continues to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on this program, spending $22 million in 2015 alone. There is no justification for spending this kind of money on an antiquated program never shown to be effective. Of course, there is some justification. It puts more non-violent marijuana users into private prisons, which were beginning to be phased out prior to this new administration with stock values plummeting. After all, the Federal Government spent 639 million dollars on 'private prisons.'"
