The Problem With Antibiotics

Many stories have been written lately for Natural News and other sites about the pending health disaster of super microbes resulting from the use of antibiotics.  The problem is that antibiotics have been used for many decades to kill pathogenic organisms, but they never quite kill them all.  The toughest ones survive and multiply.  This is seen in an extreme form in a hospital environment, where all kinds of antibiotics and chemical disinfectants are used.  Eventually all that is left are the super bacteria, and like super viruses such as those intentionally created in government laboratories, they are very hard to stop.  In the meantime, the routine use of antibiotics has killed the beneficial microorganisms in many people’s bodies, and these microbes are the main part of our immune system, especially in the digestive tract, so we are left wide open to infection, disease, unable to withstand environmental stresses that would normally not hurt us if we had not lost our natural immunity.  This may be a great business model for allopathic medicine, as it guarantees lots of business from people with no functioning immune systems, but like most of modern health care, it is a disaster for the people it is supposed to serve.

Solutions Available Right Now

The answer to this problem has multiple parts, and they fit together.  First, if we take the time to really study health and learn how to take care of our bodies and keep our immune systems strong, most pathogenic organisms will not affect us, and no health care from the system, other than in cases of accident or similar emergencies, will be needed.  As much as we might not initially want to admit it, everything we eat, drink, breath, think and feel, deeply affects our health, even if the effect is not immediately visible.  If we take responsibility for this, and make our decisions consciously to maintain our own health, we become empowered and much less dependent.

Second, we need to work to replace our current health care system with one that works in accordance with the laws of nature, not with the drug companies and their allies in and out of government, whose objective is to make a huge profit by keeping us sick.  While this unfortunate system still exists, we need to learn to take care of ourselves, not depend on those who are trained to drug us, radiate us, poison us and cut out our organs when the other things don’t work.  That may not be the most ideal system, to say the least, and there are plenty of tools including lifestyle improvements, that we can use by ourselves.

Third, for those cases where a pathogenic organism does pose a threat to our well being, where it attacks us in spite of our healthy lifestyle, we need to use a tool far better than antibiotics, one that does not kill the beneficial microorganisms that we need to stay strong.  One such potential replacement for harmful micro-life killing drugs, including antibiotics, already of proven value, is colloidal silver.

Ancient Alchemists Considered Fools By “Modern Science”

All of the precious metals, particularly gold, silver and those we call members of the platinum group (rubidium, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium and platinum) were once considered to possess special properties beneficial in health or spiritual ways.  Alchemists back into antiquity have sought to change base metals into one or more of these, but their goals were not always just the creation of monetary wealth, they also are known to have sought lasting health and long life or immortality.  Our modern “scientific” point of view is that the alchemists were merely superstitious, with baseless beliefs, and that now with modern science for the first time in history, we really understand nature and what is going on around us.  Our scientists and educators learn this arrogance as a central theme in their studies.  I can confirm this, having worked (and still working) with many of them.  Long ago, when I was a child in elementary school, we were taught, by our teachers and with the aid of reel to reel movies from Disney and others, that prior to about 1950, all “knowledge” was really just superstition, but now we had modern science.  As a result, we would send rockets into space and basically master all fields of knowledge.  This mentality has now led to the full development of a system of medicine based on the use of poisons and cutting out important body parts from trusting patients for massive profit and control, nuclear power that is now on the verge of destroying life on Earth, GMO plants that threaten to do the same thing, and jets flying over our heads 24/7 dropping toxic metals and other poisons on us, so that it is now impossible to breathe clean air.  And scientists on TV remind us it is all in our best interests, according to experts that know best.

But there is another breed of scientist that has not quite died out, fortunately for all of us.    They remember that science was not always about memorizing and repeating acceptable points of view.  Once it was about keen observation, pattern recognition, and an open-minded and critical search for understanding, of ourselves and the world around us.  If whole paradigms of understanding and world views fell in the process, it was perfectly acceptable, because the goal was understanding, and the development of tools for life that really did benefit humanity, and did not cause harm.  One of those tools that works is colloidal silver.

Silver As A Tool In “Natural Allopathic Medicine”

Dr. Mark Sircus has written a lot about what he calls “natural allopathic medicine.”  This is the practice of corrective medicine, including emergency medicine, which uses skills and knowledge shared by allopathically trained doctors but tools that minimize or totally avoid harming the patient.  Tools like hot and cold water, far infrared saunas, biomats (you can get these from Dr. Sircus) for a source of healing internal heating, bicarbonate of soda, iodine, magnesium, and among many other such non-drugs, colloidal silver.

Colloidal silver is not hard to understand.  The silver in it is regular pure, elemental silver, like the silver used to make pure silver coins (not all silver coins are pure, some contain other metals as well).  Very tiny amounts are put into suspension in water, and generally the particles are too small to see individually and too small to settle to the bottom of the container, so they stay in solution, which is what “colloidal” means.  Very small amounts of silver particles suspended like this tend to quickly kill pathogenic bacteria and viruses without harming beneficial micro-organisms.  Dr. Rima Laibow of the Natural Solutions Foundation has confirmed my understanding of why this happens, that it is connected to the difference between anaerobic and aerobic conditions that harmful vs. helpful organisms require to thrive.  I cannot personally guarantee for you that this is the exact reason that silver works, but I can tell you from my own experience that I have seen it work numerous times, on myself, on others, and even on animals.

Yes, it is definitely true that pets like cats and dogs, and possibly other creatures (I have not personally tried this on reptiles or birds yet) can also benefit.  Just this past week, silver saved the life of a very small poodle that has been with me for almost 16 years.  She almost never gets sick, because I keep her far away from vets and their drugs and vaccines, and because a few years ago I threw away all “dog food” and put her back on her normal diet as a dog.  When her diet was corrected (to fresh raw organic meat and a few supplemental foods), she quickly got back to an energy level she had not had for many years, and stopped getting sick.  However, dogs pick up various parasites and other organisms from the outside environment, and she apparently picked up one of those that was particularly nasty.  She developed a cough so chronic and severe that eventually she could hardly breathe and was getting exhausted from the coughing.  It seemed clear to me she could die.  As a holistic health investigator/practitioner since the 1960′s, I was not going to subject her to potentially deadly antibiotics, but instead I started giving her very small amounts of colloidal silver in her water, but these very small amounts did nothing visible, and she continued to get worse, so I figured that silver could not help her.  Then one night as I was almost asleep, I heard her coughing very badly without a break, and I could not stand her suffering and had to do something.  I picked up the bottle of colloidal silver I had used to put small amounts in her water, filled the screw-on eyedropper top with undiluted colloidal silver, and put it in her mouth.  She swallowed it without resistance (it just tastes like water).  Within less than a minute her cough stopped.  Even with my prior experience, this was amazing.  Apparently all that was needed was an adequate dose, and I had never before thought of this because people had told me that tiny doses were best.  This belief almost cost my small friend her life, and reminded me yet again, “Question Everything.”  So for the next couple of days’, I gave her a full dropper of the silver a few times a day.  Within two days, her cough, after months of suffering, was 90% gone, and soon after was completely cured.    The colloidal silver I used was just a brand I found at the local natural food store that turned out to be good.  It was 500 PPM (parts per million) concentration, and was dark brown in color.   About a year previously this same silver had gotten rid of a skin cancer on the back of this same dog within about 2 weeks.  You really have to experience these things to know they are possible, as they sound just to amazing to be real.  But experiences like this are why I take the time to write this for you.

Understanding The Government Seal Of Approval

One more thing, remember the U.S. government’s special program to give its “seal of approval” to some of the best natural products you can get.  For example, organic raw milk vendors have been assaulted by swat teams and sometimes arrested and tortured, as was the case in California with James Stewart, the notorious terrorist actually caught in the act of promoting and selling organic raw milk.  If this is not a seal of approval, I don’t know what is.  Similarly, EPA has attempted to regulate colloidal silver as a pesticide, too dangerous for ordinary mortals to handle without their supervision.  For now, public outrage from those who use colloidal silver seems to have backed them off, but it is unknown for how long.  After all, colloidal silver, if it ever became widely known, could pose a real threat to the medical drug dealers that contribute so much to the U.S. economy by selling antibiotics and other killers of pathogens.  If these drug sales were reduced, who knows what economic chaos could ensue, right?  So if you need official endorsement of the real benefits of colloidal silver, it seems to me that you have it right there.  Hardly anyone in the natural movement ever takes a minute to thank their federal servants who work tirelessly to offer them services like these various seal of approval programs, and we ought to be more appreciative.  Just a note of caution, though, just in case government agencies succeed in making colloidal silver totally illegal for you to purchase (for your own good of course), if you want to still have it available, you need to either stock up on it in advance, or get yourself one of the systems to produce it yourself, offered by Silver Lungs and possibly other companies on the internet.  I have seen excellent results with this home-produced product as well.

One other precautionary note, is that if you take large doses of colloidal silver all the time, you may eventually succeed in turning your skin blue or gray from the buildup of silver.  Most users agree that silver is a tool to use when you need it, not as a daily supplement, and this is the main reason.  The condition of this coloring has been called permanent, but Mercola and others do not agree, and directions have been offered to reverse it and get rid of the blue-gray color (called “argyria”).  One of many online suggestions on how to do this can be seen at http://www.indiadivine.org/content/topic/1840379-argyria-cured-curing-the-blue-skin-from-colloidal-silver-normal-liver-spots/.  I have not tried any of these, as I have never turned my skin gray by overusing silver.  Just be reasonable and only use colloidal silver when needed so it has no chance to build up in your system to this extent.

Colloidal Silver In Context Of Total Health

I would certainly have colloidal silver in my home medicine arsenal, and you may want to learn as much about it as you can.  It is not a panacea for health, just a great tool that makes it easier to avoid using some others that are dangerous and don’t work nearly as well.

To put tools like silver in context, remember that it is primarily your every day lifestyle that will determine your state of health.  When you first start becoming aware of this, and gradually realize that your body is an extremely sensitive, conscious instrument, and everything you put on it or in it affects its well being in a positive or negative manner, you may feel disheartened that learning to really take care of yourself is such a job, with the world as it is today.  My suggestion is, instead of resenting it, take it as an exciting and educational challenge.  Become enthusiastic about learning.  You have great power to repair and maintain your own health even in this poisoned world being run by those who seem determined to destroy it, and us as well.  You can learn anything you want to know.  Your body is designed to be fully self-healing, and it has amazing powers that most of us never imagine, and instead we run to drugs that in the long run make us a lot sicker and can lead to serious disease (read the so-called “side effects,” which are really just more of the main effects you’re not supposed to think about).  Try changing your reason for eating.  This can totally transform your health.  Instead of choosing your foods and drinks, your times to eat and the amounts you consume according to taste, try making these choices only based on what your body will most benefit from, what it actually needs, when and how much.  Then enjoy those things you choose AFTER you make the choices for the new reasons.  If you become a keen observer of what your body tells you, learn to differentiate completely between learned cravings and deep nutritional needs (and your body will tell you these things if you learn to listen), you can really transform your life.

Thoughts And Emotions Are Also Part Of Your Diet

Choose not only your food and drink, but also your thoughts and emotions the same way.  I am challenging you to monitor the thoughts and emotions you carry around all day, and realize they are VOLUNTARY, and you can change them at will.  The secret there is this: if a certain thing happens around you, in your life, you are not required to have a pre-set mental and emotional reaction to it.  Learn what this means.  It is not the thing outside of you, the event, even the other person, that is really the source of stress.  It is always our reaction to it that hurts us and hurts our health.  We have forgotten, this is a voluntary choice.  We can re-learn this, and eliminate most stress, even if we still have to deal with the same circumstances and people.  It is a totally amazing discovery and it holds the key to eliminate the source of many health problems that come from emotional distress.

So get inspired.  You have the ability to radically improve your own health, just based on your choices every day.  Start making them conscious, and be brave enough to question them all.  Those being made for the right reasons can be left alone.  The others hold secret keys for you to change your life in amazing ways.  And when you are considering what tools to have on hand to deal with infections when and if they occur, learn about what silver has to offer.  Real medicines with powerful benefits and no toxic or negative effects are worth considering.  Combine the knowledge of these tools with deep learning about how to detoxify years of built up poisons in your cells before they cause more disease, and how to raise your nutrition to the next level, and you will find many of your old ideas of what limits you have disappeared, leaving you face to face with a new life.

Lovely Lavender for healing

Lavender oil is for healing

Lavender oil is for healing

by Willow Tohi

(NaturalNews) One of the most powerful forms of ancient medicine, aromatherapy, has been used for millennia to treat all manner of ailments. Use of essential oils, today called aromatherapy, was well documented in ancient Persia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. There are more than 100 references to their use in the Bible for things like anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherapy, massage, personal care, emotional balancing, and household uses, among others.

Essential oils come from the natural aromatic liquids found in plants, trees, and shrubs. The distinctive components that defend a plant against insects, environmental pollutants and disease, and allow it to grow and adapt to its surroundings, make up the plant’s essence. The essence is extracted from the plant’s flowers, leaves, roots, seeds, or peels into a concentrated volatile liquid, most often through steam distillation. They are highly concentrated and more potent than any dried herb. Essential oils will strengthen most holistic programs, including herbal and nutritional supplements.

 

The best-known healing oil

Lavender essential oil has many wonderful uses. One of the best known healing oils, lavender oil has a chemically complex structure with over 150 active constituents, which explains its effectiveness at helping with everything from insect bites to rheumatism. The botanical name, Lavandula, comes from Latin, lavare, which means “to wash,” probably for its history of use cleansing wounds, as well as washing linens and in personal bathing. It is a known anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, analgesic, calmative, detoxifier, hypotensive, and sedative.

Among the most versatile of oils, lavender is very effective at soothing, calming, balancing (both mind and body), and revitalizing. It is used through inhalation, massage, bath or shower, humidifier or vaporizer, or added to skin and personal care products. Your female ancestors most likely used lavender water as perfume. It is good for all skin types including sensitive skin, unless the scent puts you off – this seems to be a built-in warning system useful for gauging your compatibility with all the essential oils. Too much can be toxic to any system, so obey your nose and avoid it if you don’t care for the smell.

 

Uses

Lavender oil has a well documented history of effectively treating burns and scalds. It’s pain relieving properties, combined with its antibacterial and antiseptic properties make it an effective wound treatment that stimulates the cells of a wound to regenerate more quickly, and prevent scarring. It is useful for treating headaches, insomnia, fever blisters, acne, anxiety, stress, and depression. Additional uses include:

• Apply lavender oil to insect bites, including bee and wasp stings, to neutralize pain and swelling almost immediately
• Mix with aloe vera to treat sunburns
• A cool compress on the forehead with lavender eases sinus headaches
• Add it to shampoos to prevent dandruff and reduce hair loss
• Lavender in your linen closet repels moths
• Add a few drops to the rinse water to give your laundry a good smell
• It is a great room deodorizer; add to potpourri
• A drop or two on a pillow or pajamas will encourage sleep
• Lavender in bath water will help relax children for bedtime
• Place leaves and flowers in sachets for your underwear drawer
• It can be used to treat urinary tract, bladder, and yeast infections
• Lavender is an effective at-home treatment for athlete’s foot and other fungal infections
• It eases coughs and colds, and reduces fever
• Lavender can be used to treat animals for fleas
• It is an effective treatment for head lice
• Lavender stimulates growth of healthy new cells
• Add a few drops of oil to unscented lotion or make your own perfume water for a nice, clean personal scent
• Lavender is useful in easing motion sickness and high blood pressure
• A couple drops on a cotton ball in the bottom of a trash can or diaper pail helps neutralize odors
• Add a few drops to a carrier oil – something in your kitchen will probably work, such as olive or almond – for a massage of muscles or joints

Lavender also combines well with several other oils to make nice blends, which extends its usefulness. For example, mix with grapefruit or eucalyptus for insect repellent.

Lavender, the plant and its oil, has been used continuously for thousands of years and is native to the Mediterranean. There are several varieties, and they grow at varying altitudes. The finest, which is for medicinal use, grows at higher altitudes, making it more difficult to cultivate, which in turn makes it more expensive. The more common and available lavender is best for most users and uses. For around $15 you can have a great addition to your at-home health cabinet. As you only need a drop or two for most uses it will last a long time. For access to the plant itself, lavender is widely grown today and there are many ‘pick your own’ farms here in the U.S. There are probably plants for sale at your local nursery if you’d like to grow your own.

 

Rules for use

Essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin in their concentrated, undiluted form. They are not for internal use, unless under the care of a qualified practitioner. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Always store oils tightly closed in a cool, dark place as they are sensitive to heat and light. If they are in dark glass bottles, they should keep for a long time if stored properly. Do not use in conjunction with flower essences or homeopathy without guidance. Several oils should be avoided during the first trimesters of pregnancy and by those with conditions such as high blood pressure or epilepsy, again, unless under the care of a qualified aromatherapist. Sensitivity or even allergy to essential oils is possible, so trust your instincts – and your nose.

Essential oils are powerful, ancient medicine. Today, they are also readily available in less volatile varieties for ease of use by laypeople for topical and everyday purposes. There are lots of recipes online, or pick up a good book on essential oils. You’ll probably save yourself some money and some exposure to the chemicals in most personal care products and topical treatments.

Stress and how it bites you 10 years from now

Research: How you respond to stress now determines your health in 10 years

by Mike Bundrant : www.naturalnews.com
(NaturalNews) Research now shows that the way you handle minor daily stressors – those little annoyances – has a tremendous impact on your long-term health.

Human nature is to justify the nasty little moods, childish reactions and general grumpiness because “life is so stressful.” We act like we can’t help it. Human nature is leading us to an early grave.

study conducted at University of Pennsylvania reminds us that the stressful events themselves are not the real problem. Our reactions to those events are the problem – and a serious one at that.

“Our research shows that how you react to what happens in your life today predicts your chronic health conditions and 10 years in the future, independent of your current health and your future stress,” said David Almeida, professor of human development and family studies at University of Pennsylvania.

“For example, if you have a lot of work to do today and you are really grumpy because of it, then you are more likely to suffer negative health consequences 10 years from now than someone who also has a lot of work to do today, but doesn’t let it bother her.

“The research was rigorous, including eight consecutive daily interviews, along with four saliva-based cortisol tests during those eight days. For each participant, the test was conducted again ten years later to determine any changes in stress handling as well as to assess health outcomes.The results were clear. Those who handled stress better had fewer overall health issues, especially chronic pain and cardiovascular problems.

Can we get attached to a stressful, negative way of being?

Pioneering psychiatrist Edmund Bergler, MD, observed that we do get attached to negativity and stress. In fact, he called such attachments a reflection of our basic neurosis, suggesting that we actually – subconsciously – learn to prefer the displeasure of stress rather than the pleasure of happiness. If you look at the world from this perspective, it makes so much sense.

Deep down (very, very deep down) we prefer being controlled, rejected and deprived to simple contentment. Think about it. What does it take to be happy? Not much. Food, clothing and shelter. A calm mind, nature, perhaps a few friends. So simple.

Discontent has become more familiar and tolerable than happiness for far too many people.

The world we live in and the people who inhabit it – myself included – are anything but “simply content” to live in the moment, even though doing so is easy and always available. We want more. We want power. We want stuff. We want fame.

Our incessant desire for more power, possessions and fame only leaves us feeling more powerless, deprived and rejected. We understand this, for the most part. Yet, we greedily continue to pursue that which cannot fulfill.

It makes us cranky. It’s depressing. Yet, we keep it up. Our attachment to misery is more compelling that we can imagine.

Have you ever tried to get someone to change a behavior that is making them miserable, only to be resisted at every turn?

Have you struggled to give up reactions or behaviors that cause you misery, only to return to them again and again?

Do you realize that allowing yourself to get stressed out is adversely affecting your health, yet you continue to stress your way through the day regardless?

It is obvious we are attached to negativity and stress. Now, how do we deal with it?

The first step is to recognize what is going on – to get out of denial. This is 90% of the battle, as denial is the most elegant and effective defense mechanism ever conceived. It’s brilliant! Just deny the truth – hide it from yourself by convincing yourself that the source of the problem is ANYTHING but you.

Cholesterol is NOT the Culprit

Cholesterol is NOT the enemy:

It’s inflammation that’s making you fat and killing you slowly

dairy

 

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The collective psyche of American society is long overdue for a major paradigm shift in its understanding of fats, inflammation, cholesterol, and the true cause of most chronic illnesses. Even many physicians, who should know better, still argue that cholesterol is evil and that sticking to a low-fat diet is good for health. But the fact of the matter is that avoiding fats is toxic to your health, and consuming the many food additives that commonly replace them – these include synthetic trans fats, refined sugars, and processed grains – are a primary cause of disease-causing inflammation.

It all makes sense if you just stop and consider the native role cholesterol plays in protecting arteries against lesions and other damage. Rather than being the cause of plaque buildup in the circulatory system, cholesterol is actually the healing agent the body sends to sites that have been damaged by inflammation. In other words, if you have too much cholesterol buildup in your arteries, your real problem is too much inflammation rather than too much cholesterol, and a whole different mitigatory approach is required to address the problem.

“It’s the inflammation in the vessels that starts the lesion,” says Dr. Beverly Teter, a lipid biochemist from the University of Maryland who has been researching fats and their affect on the human body for many years, as quoted by CBN.com. “The body then sends the cholesterol like a scab to cover over it to protect the blood system and the vessel wall from further damage.”

This runs completely contrary to the prevailing medical dogma, which still maintains that saturated fat and cholesterol are silent killers that can lead to heart disease, diabetes and other forms of chronic illness. As a result, millions of Americans have been duped into avoiding these necessary nutrients to their own demise, while they instead gorge on unhealthy vegetable oils, trans fats, sugars, grains, and phony low-fat junk foods.

“When choosing which fats to eat, pick the ones that are high in omega-3 fats and also choose natural saturated fats,” advises Lorie Johnson from CBN.com. “On the other hand, stay away from the fats that lead to inflammation, such as trans fats and omega-6 fats,” she adds, noting that most of the oils used in processed food are unhealthy vegetable oils posing as “nutritious.”

Saturated fat and cholesterol necessary for

proper cellular function, brain health

What few people today realize is that their bodies actually require both saturated fat and cholesterol for proper metabolism, brain health, hormone balance and cellular homeostasis. Without these two important nutritional components, a cascade of health problems can ensue, including debilitating brain conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This is especially true for people who take toxic statin drugs to artificially lower their cholesterol levels.

“People with high cholesterol live the longest,” says Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, M.D., Ph.D. “Consider the finding of Dr. Harlan Krumholz of the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Yale University, who reported in 1994 that old people with low cholesterol died twice as often from a heart attack as did old people with high cholesterol.”

Detox with diatomaceous earth to remove allergies, mercury, chemicals, GMOs, parasites

by JB Bardot

(NaturalNews) Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a naturally occurring rock made from the skeletons of fossilized diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae. When ground into a fine powder, diatomaceous earth works mechanically to destroy a wide range of pests, insects, parasites and pathogens by cutting through the exoskeleton, absorbing bodily fluids and causing them to die. Food grade diatomaceous earth is chemical-free and non toxic.

Diatomaceous earth has many uses including detoxification of the body — inside and out; protecting pets and livestock from parasites and insect infestation; and keep your yard and garden pest-free.

Detoxing

Add diatomaceous earth to your diet to detox parasites that can contribute to food intolerance, nausea, bowel discomfort, pain, itching, asthma, sinus infections, Morgellon’s disease, and a host of other allergic-type reactions.

DE detoxes mercury, cadmium, lead and other heavy metals; removes poisons from chemtrails, radiation and may alleviate the effects of GMOs. DE possesses antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.

In addition to detoxing and destroying pathogens, diatomaceous earth helps to lower blood pressure and contributes to the production of collagen to improve skin tone, strengthening the tendons and joints.

To consume DE orally, start with half a teaspoon and work up to two heaping tablespoons. Mix thoroughly in four ounces of water. Drink immediately and follow with another eight ounces of water. Take on an empty stomach. Continue drinking water throughout the day, because DE can cause constipation.

Initially, you may experience a Herxhemier reaction, which can cause abdominal discomfort and flu-like symptoms. This is a normal response to detoxing, as parasites and pathogens die, releasing their toxins into your system for elimination. The symptoms disappear after a few days.

Protect grains and dry goods

Add diatomaceous earth to bulk grains and legumes to keep opportunistic pests out of your pantry. Use in bags of dried dog, cat and foods for livestock.

Yard and garden

· Sprinkle DE along outside edges on window sills and doors to prevent spiders and ants from entering the house

· Pour into a lawn spreader and apply diatomaceous earth to yard to kill fleas, tics, chiggers and other biting insects that attach themselves to pets. Sprinkle on bushes with a strainer.

· Apply diatomaceous earth on garden soil and plants to protect them from vegetable-loving insects. Make a ring around the stem on the soil to prevent crawly insects from munching stems.

· Pour over fire ant hills to destroy the colony

· Apply to compost and manure piles to reduce odor and control flies

· Apply around garbage pails to keep flies away

· Avoid applying to flowers where beneficial insects like bees, ladybugs and butterflies visit

Pets and Livestock

· Carefully apply to your pet’s coat to kill fleas. DE also prevents new fleas from taking hold and destroys ticks. Avoid making lots of dust when treating your animals. Wear a mask and drape a lightweight towel over the animal’s face during the application.

Diatomaceous earth is safe for use on pets as long as precautions are taken to protect them from inhaling the dust. Add small amounts of DE to pet’s food to kill internal worms and other parasites.

· Sprinkle DE on the soil around your dog’s kennel

· Add to kitty litter to reduce odor and kill fleas

· Sprinkle the chicken coop, barn, stall, and nesting boxes with DE to keep your livestock pest free

Indoors

· Sprinkle diatomaceous earth on furniture, rugs and in cracks around the edge of baseboards to kill insects. Leave for several hours or longer, then vacuum.
· Use a plastic squeeze bottle with a pointed tip to blow DE into hard-to-reach places like electrical outlets — after removing the cover

Warning

· Always use food grade DE
· Avoid inhaling
· DE is drying to the eyes and skin; use precautions when applying
· Diatomaceous earth kills beneficial insects; use caution in the garden

Multiple vaccine doses have resulted in up to 145,000 child deaths in past 20 years

(NaturalNews) The recommended childhood vaccination schedule has changed dramatically over the years, with children now receiving upwards of 30 vaccines, including multiple combination vaccines, before the age of six. And in many cases, doctors and nurses administer half a dozen or more vaccines all at once during a single visit to make sure children get all these shots and to save time. But according to data compiled from the government’s Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), as many as 145,000 children or more have died throughout the past 20 years as a result of this multiple vaccine dose approach, and few parents are aware of this shocking fact.

In a study recently published in the journal Human & Experimental Toxicology, researchers evaluated the overall number of hospitalizations and deaths associated with vaccines administered between 1990 and 2010, and compared this data to the number of vaccines given at one time to individual children. Hospitalizations and deaths resulting from one vaccine dose were compared to those of two vaccine doses, in other words, and the same all the way up to eight vaccine doses. Researchers also evaluated overall hospitalization and death rates associated with getting one to four combined vaccine doses, five to eight combined vaccine doses, and one to eight combined vaccine doses.

Upon analysis, the team found that the more vaccines a child receives during a single doctor visit, the more likely he or she is to suffer a severe reaction or even die. According to Heidi Stevenson from Gaia Health, for each additional vaccine a child receives, his or her chance of death increases by an astounding 50 percent — and with each additional vaccine dose, chances of having to be hospitalized for severe complications increase two-fold. To sum it all up, the overall size of the vaccine load was found to be directly associated with hospitalization and death risk, illustrating the incredible dangers of administering multiple vaccines at once.

Parents of children who become injured after just one vaccine tend to cease further vaccinations, suggests data

Interestingly, the total number of reported hospitalizations and deaths from getting just one vaccine was higher than the number reported for getting two, three, or even four vaccines. Though the precise reason for this is unknown, it is believed that newborns mostly fall into the one vaccine category, and those that are injured by a single vaccine tend not to get any more vaccines, hence the immediate decrease observed among children who received only two vaccines. Once a child reaches five vaccinations; however, the hospitalization and death rate jumps dramatically, the reason for which was not investigated as part of the study.

“Our findings show a positive correlation between the number of vaccine doses administered and the percentage of hospitalizations and deaths reports to VAERS,” wrote the authors in their conclusion. “In addition, younger infants were significantly more likely than older infants to be hospitalized or die after receiving vaccines. Since vaccines are administered to millions of infants every year, it is imperative that health authorities have scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants are likely to receive.”

Body pH – how important is this?

Five reasons to keep your body alkaline for true healing

Saturday, December 22, 2012 by: J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews)You may not have known it, but keeping your diet primarily alkaline rather than acidic is a much healthier alternative and can add years to your life.

“The human body goes to great lengths to maintain a slightly alkaline PH of 7.35, but poor diet and stress can change the PH to an acidic one in which disease can thrive,” says Raw Food Health. You can help your body out tremendously just by adjusting your eating habits.

“Unfortunately many people don’t pay much attention to their diet until they experience a major health scare and then, they do so in a desperate attempt to regain their health,” adds food lifestyle educator Carol Galanty. “Thankfully, many are able to do so, but it would be so much better all around if diet were treated as a means of preventive medicine before signs of imbalance start to occur.”

Here are five reasons to switch to a diet made up primarily of alkaline foods:

Boost your energy dramatically.

Tens of millions of Americans consume caffeine (coffee, tea) or so-called “energy drinks” by the gallon each week, despite the known dangers of such products. If you want to boost your energy naturally and safely, stick to an alkaline diet.

That is one composed primarily of alkaline-forming foods like figs, molasses, green, leafy veggies, almonds, beets, dates, celery, cantaloupe and parsley. “In addition to eating these foods, taking one teaspoon of a greens powder every morning mixed into juice or a smoothie can also raise energy” levels, says About.com guide Cathy Wong, a licensed naturopathic doctor and an American College of Nutrition-certified nutrition specialist.

An alkaline diet will also helps you get a better night’s sleep and one that is infinitely more restful, helping you keep energy levels high throughout your busy day.

Keep your body functioning at its optimal level.

“Our bodies perform optimally when in an alkalinestate, yet the majority of food that Americans eat are acidic (meat, dairy, fish, eggs, sugar, soda, coffee, tea, alcohol, nicotine, processed foods, etc),” writes Galanty. “This heavily weighted acidic dietbrings our bodies to a state of imbalance and eventually disease.”

She and other experts say that by maintaining a primarily alkaline diet – somewhere in the range of 70-80 percent – can help you maintain or return your body to balance (called homeostasis in medical lingo). “A state of wellness where you feel healthy, energenic, have smoothing glowing skin and an alert, focused mind,” says Galanty. “Sluggish, tired and overweight is not a normal state to be in.”

Slow down the aging process.

An acidic diet can take its toll on our bones and muscles the older we get.

“As we age, there is a loss of muscle mass, which may predispose to falls and fractures,” says an analysis by the National Institutes of Health. “A three-year study looking at a diet rich in potassium, such as fruits and vegetables, as well as a reduced acid load, resulted in preservation of muscle mass in older men and women.”

“Conditions such as chronic renal failure that result in chronic metabolic acidosis result in accelerated breakdown in skeletal muscle,” the NIH analysis continued. “Correction of acidosis may preserve muscle mass in conditions where muscle wasting is common such as diabetic ketosis, trauma, sepsis, chronic obstructive lung disease, and renal failure.”

Lower your cancer risk.

Some research suggests that an alkaline-rich diet is linked to lower rates of cancer, if only because such diets consist primarily of vegetables.

Remember Kris Carr’s 2007 film, Crazy, Sexy Cancer? The documentary tracks “the actress and photographer’s journey after a 2003 diagnosis of stage-four epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, a rare cancer found in the liver and lungs’ blood vessel linings,” the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

Nine years later, eating only a plant-based diet, Carr’s health is good – a phenomenon she attributed to staying pH-balanced.

Keep off the extra pounds.

By boosting your consumption of alkaline-producing foods, you can naturally shed weight.

“Promoting things like weight loss, improved immunity, and even disease prevention, celebrity nutritionist Dr. Lindsey Duncan is a proponent of the alkaline diet. He says our meals are increasingly acidic, and our bodies are paying the price,” ABC News affiliate KTRK reported.

Things like “cardiovascular disease, depression, forgetfulness, poor mood, mind, memory,” he says.
