Scientist’s New Theory on Crohn’s Disease

Natural Health
Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory disorder that causes ulcerations in the small and large intestines. "Conventional wisdom" has been that it is somehow linked to an over-active immune system. However, Traditional Naturopaths have long believed that natural reinforcement of the immune system is in order. Now, the Allopathic community appears to be "coming around" as well. New Theory on Crohn's Disease "Dr. Alistair Forbes, medical director of the gut disorder organisation Core, told the BBC News website the work was 'very exciting' and consistent with other pieces of work which suggested Crohn's was linked to a weak immune response. He said: 'The cause of Crohn's remains unknown, and although there are genetic factors, it is quite clear they don't explain the whole thing. Crohn's is clearly related to the…

Flu Drugs Rendered Ineffective

Natural Health
Fact one: Drugs are artificial substances created by man to mask symptoms, or, in some cases, to alleviate symptoms. Fact two: Artificially fighting flu viruses with drugs can cause the virus to mutate and become resistant to the drug. Fact three: This leads to stronger more dangerous viruses that can more easily overcome weakened human immune systems. Flu Drugs Ineffective Against Flu I find it interesting that these scientists said that they were "shocked" that the flu drugs they trust in so highly were now ineffective! They, themselves, have been saying for years that this would happen, and now they are surprised that it has? I wonder. "'We were absolutely shocked at the findings,' said Rick A. Bright, an immunologist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 'This…

ADHD Drugs Now Have Warnings!

Natural Health
What I am about to say, is... humbly, my opinion. But, that's what Blogs are about, right? Let's set it up this way. Big Pharma (large drug companies) have an agenda... to sell drugs. Yeah, obvious, I know. But, their goal is sell as many drugs as possible. Some time back they decided that if they could sell a lot of drugs with "X" number of diseases, then "X+more" diseases would allow them to sell more drugs! So, I believe, they started coming up with "conditions" and "tendencies" and "syndromes" that their drugs treated. Cancer is a REAL disease. It is organically demonsratable. So is a virus. But some "conditions" are "emotionally based" and some "syndromes" are seen only through "behaviors." So, if you figet and have a hard time…

Candy That is Good for Your Teeth

Natural Health
As we know, candy that contains sugar is very bad for teeth. It promotes the bacteria that attack teeth. But one recent study indicates that there is a "candy" that is actually good for your teeth - licorice! Licorice Good for Teeth "Licorice has a possible benefit "for promoting oral health with licorice extracts," Shi told Reuters. Still he warned that more research is needed before anyone should take up chewing licorice as a way to prevent cavities. But just because we should wait, it doesn't mean Shi has to. He and his team are currently developing sugar-free lollipops that contain the active component in licorice which could be used to promote oral health in kids and seniors. Preventing cavities never tasted so sweet! The study findings were published in…

Former General Warns of Eroding Healthcare Freedom in the US

Health Freedoms
There are many efforts afoot to curtail our healthcare freedoms. That is why I try to report here when I find these efforts are gaining ground. I have been aware of the European Union's Codex Alimentarius for some time, but this article covers it quite well! Former General Warns About Loss of Health Freedoms "Some of the points made during their interview (of General Stubblebine) are: - Codex Alimentarius requires that all meats, poultry, fish, fruit and vegetables must be irradiated by Dec. 31, 2009. - Codex Alimentarius requires that all dairy cattle are to be given Monsanto bovine growth hormone by Dec. 31, 2009. - Codex Alimentarius reclassifies vitamin and mineral supplements as toxins and dramatically limits their dosage and availability. - Many nations have already harmonized their laws…
