Tibetan Singing Bowls: The Power of Sound Healing

'For centuries, the Tibetan people have practiced sound healing and consciousness transformation with a musical instrument known as a “singing bowl.” Modern science now reveals the healing secrets of these mystical metal bowls.

The resonance produced by these hand-crafted bowls can measurably improve human immune function, lower heart rate and blood pressure, soothe pain in cancer patients, and drastically reduce stress levels. Indeed, the bowls dissipate stress to such a tremendous degree that the body becomes a perfect receptacle of deep healing.'


Death By Heart Disease Linked To Low Vitamin K - Top 10 Foods Rich In Vitamin K

'There is a strong link between poor vitamin K status and cardiovascular (CV) mortality, say researchers who warn that around a third of people may be deficient.

Vitamin K is an essential nutrient necessary for responding to injuries - it regulates normal blood clotting. In addition, by assisting the transport of calcium throughout the body, Vitamin K is also helpful for bone health: it may reduce bone loss, and decrease risk of bone fractures. Vitamin K2 is known as a procoagulant and may also be useful for atherosclerosis and heart disease. When brain cells do not have enough energy, they begin to die off, disrupting signals and causing movement impediments.'

"When Halloween is approaching and through Thanksgiving, pumpkins are sighted everywhere. From Thanksgiving through the Christmas holidays pumpkin pies are popular. But few know that there are diabetes and cancer fighting properties in pumpkins, as well as inflammatory reducing and immune boosting properties.

Pumpkins and pumpkin seeds contain cucurmosin, which is a type of inactivating protein. It is part of the Cucurbita moschata species, which includes pumpkin and squash that have developed the cucurmosin to protect the species from pathogenic microbes and fungi. Cucurmosin has been shown to induce apoptosis in various cancer cells tested."

Government Attempting to Clamp Down on Medical Cannabis States While Allowing Opioid Pain Killers to Flow into Black Markets


While other nations are allowing medical allowances for cannabis or beginning to see the potential for cannabis applied medicinally, here in the USA dark clouds are forming federally that threaten existing medical marijuana states.
Meanwhile, the real drug epidemic of opioid painkillers goes not only unhampered but encouraged by the same dark clouds in Washington, D.C. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has hampered legal action against pharmaceutical drug trafficking while the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment that protects medical marijuana states is in jeopardy.

The Logic, Wisdom and Scientific Evidence for the Homeopathic Treatment of Influenza

'This is the time of year that Big Media seeks to appease its biggest advertisers, Big Pharma, by helping to spread fear and panic about this year’s “flu epidemic.” They commonly quote sensationalized statistics, suggesting that you will die or become very ill unless you vaccinate. However, conveniently enough, even the Lung Association admits that the vast majority of these deaths associated with the flu are not from this illness at all but from pneumonia.

This merging of statistics is rare in medicine or science, except when the economics of Big Pharma (or another big industry) are involved, as their bible seemingly becomes “Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics” (in other words, how to use statistics to create fear and sell drugs).'


Can BEC5 Actually Heal Skin Cancer?

Video Transcript: Can BEC5 Actually Heal Skin Cancer?

Ty Bollinger: One more question. I want to talk to you about BEC5. I talked to Dr. Jonathan Wright about this extract from eggplant and the Devil’s Weed in Australia. Share a little bit with our viewers about BEC5.


A common vegetable cures skin cancer 

by Paul Fassa 

(NaturalNews) When it comes to skin cancer, Big Pharma offers only topical chemo creams and surgery. The chemo creams often don't work but often do cause ugly, painful side effects. Removing skin cancer tumors surgically usually results with tumors resurfacing sooner or later. Surgeries often leave ugly scars. 

However, there are inexpensive, effective, safe cures for curing skin cancer that are banned by the mainstream medical monopoly, which are not publicized by the mainstream media. 

A relatively new remedy, BEC5, is a spin off from an Australian folk remedy for farm animals. It is available to anyone online. It uses the phyotonutrients extracted from eggplants. Clinical trials and anecdotal testimonies confirmed BEC5's efficacy and safety on basal cell and squamous cell cancers. 

Melanoma is the least common but most dangerous skin cancer with the highest morbidity rate. It can metastasize into internal organs. The maker and distributors for BEC5 make no claims for curing melanoma so far. But at least one person who made a homemade version that anyone can make claimed it cured his melanoma. 

The homemade remedy involves a solution of vinegar and eggplant that extracts the same phyotonutrient glycocides and glycoalkaloids contained in BEC5 directly from the eggplant. The glycoalkaloids penetrate cancer cells selectively and destroy them. Normal cells are left alone. 

How to make and use the homemade eggplant remedy 
This is an attempt at disclosing what others report cured their skin cancers. It's purely educational and not meant as medical advice. Some of the anecdotal reports had their skin cancer diagnosed by MDs, with subsequent cures confirmed by MDs (1). 

Some have used white vinegar, while others recommend raw organic apple cider vinegar. Get a medium sized eggplant and grind it up. Put that into a glass jar and fill it up with the vinegar. Place the jar into the refrigerator. After around three days with the white vinegar, the liquid should turn to a brownish gold color. That indicates it's ready to use. 

Apple cider vinegar is already a similar color, but three days seasoning in a refrigerator should be enough. 

Apply it directly to tumors often with a cotton ball, or secure the soaked cotton onto the tumor with tape. Treatment may take a couple of weeks or more. Both commercial BEC5 cream and the homemade version also work on warts and other unhealthy skin conditions. 

One user mentioned that according to his doctor (naturopath?), if the homemade procedure is painful, then it is melanoma that's under attack. Many of these homemade remedy users were in Australia, where Dr. Bill Cham, MD, PhD, found out about the Devil's Apple plant used by veterinarians and farmers to cure skin cancers on farm animals. 

Dr. Cham claims a high, safe cure rate with non-melanoma skin cancers from his own clinical testing. Detractors claim there are no published reports in medical journals. That could be due to the fact that Dr. Cham had to go it alone testing his cream on skin cancer patients in the UK hospital system. Dr. Cham demonstrates and explains his BEC5 cream in a video (2). 

Mainstream medicine always attacks natural non-pharmaceutical cures and their sponsors. However, a well known physician, Dr. Jonathan Wright MD, founder of the holistic Tahoma Clinic in the Seattle Washington area, backs up Dr. Cham. Dr. Wright sells BEC5 creams and explains how it works and how it was tested within the UK system (3 - 4). 

Dr. Cham determined that the same curative glycoalkaloids were available in eggplant. From there he went on and pioneered the development of BEC5 in London.

Fear Is The Sickness

'The labels. Depression. Pertussis. Breast Cancer. Hashimoto’s. These are more than words – these are modern day hexes. They have this power because culturally-supported beliefs give meaning to our perception of these observed signs and symptoms. We create that meaning as a collective, and then we pass it on and around. We decide, together, what we will be afraid of. The list is curated and maintained by the media, and we are continuously learning and relearning when – and around what – to activate this fear response.

What is an anxiety disorder? Why is worrying a problem?

Does worry really make us sick?

Enter the nocebo effect.'


Brain Food: Keep Your Eyes on Spinach

'Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) is a leafy green vegetable that is a member of the Amaranthaceae, or amaranth family. This family of flowering plants derives its name from a Greek word that means “unfading,” or “unwilting,” and is symbolic of immortality.

Popeye had a point. Spinach may not grow muscle, but its healthy properties make the body strong in other ways.'

These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).
The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.
Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death.

Cabbage Beats Chemo For Cervical Cancer

"Mainstream medicine's cancer treatments of radiation and chemotherapy are far from a cure. In fact, they can make cancer more deadly. But new research shows some common vegetables may be more effective in battling cancer.

Why? The answer has to do with cancer stem cells (CSCs) that chemo and radiation can't touch."

Replacements for bisphenol A, a hormone-disrupting chemical in plastics and food containers, could be just as harmful or even worse than it, according to a new study by the National Toxicology Program. The study of 24 replacement chemicals found that many already in use are structurally and functionally similar to BPA, and, just like BPA, may harm the endocrine system.

'Today, it is estimated that 50 percent of the American population have cholesterol levels that fall outside the accepted healthy range, but who defines this range and under what testing protocols? Many medical professionals are starting to question the current standard of care when it comes to statin therapy, as these cholesterol-lowering medications may not benefit patient populations at all, and in fact may be harming them.'

'Because of its lower cost, canola oil is ubiquitous in processed foods intended for the growing “health conscious” market. Now a recently published study is confirming the suspicions of those of us who refuse to use canola oil.

Philadelphia Pennsylvania’s Temple University conducted an animal study to determine the validity of canola oil’s health claims. Their results were published this month, December, 2017, in the journal Scientific Reports.

The study was titled “Effect of canola oil consumption on memory, synapse and neuropathology in the triple transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease.” '


Psychedelic Renaissance Is Bringing An Era of Incredible Natural Medicine

'Every few years, there is a surge in scientific interest followed by breathless proclamations of the long-awaited psychedelic renaissance. It is now entering a new stage, with a series of startling insights gracing the pages of leading journals and clinical trials making progress.

The story always follows the same arc: psychedelic therapy showed huge promise in the 1950s, was crushed by the establishment in the late 1960s and is now being revived by a group of fearless visionaries. In five years, 10 at the most, doctors will be routinely prescribing LSD, psilocybin, MDMA and other psychedelic drugs for a range of conditions.'


Study: Long Term High-fat Ketogenic Diet is Healthy and Safe

'A recently concluded German study, published November 11, 2017 in the journal Clinical Nutrition shows no long-term negative effects for those following a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein ketogenic diet.

Ketogenic dieting has been used successfully to reverse Alzheimer’s and reduce epileptic seizures in children. Some have even used extreme ketogenic dieting for inducing remission from their cancers.

The ketogenic diet was developed in the 1920s at Johns Hopkins hospital to stop seizures in children who did not respond to anti-seizure drugs. The diet fell out of favor in recent years due to the negative press on saturated fats, and fears over the long-term consequences of eating large amounts of saturated fats.'


Is Laughter Good for Our Health?

'In 1964, editor Norman Cousins was diagnosed with the degenerative disease ankylosing spondylitis, which was associated with constant pain and poor prognosis. Since Cousins believed that stress had contributed to his illness, he reasoned that positive emotions could improve it. 

He began watching funny television shows or movies, and asserted that 10 minutes of belly laughter resulted in 2 hours of pain free sleep that was not achievable with morphine. His subsequent recovery was chronicled in his popular book, Anatomy of an Illness as Perceived by the Patient, which became a made-for-TV movie in 1984 that starred Ed Asner.'


Seven Fabulous Foods to Boost Brain Function and Prevent Memory Loss

'And likely the most important factor that impacts whether you brain is functioning optimally, or declining and shrinking, is the food you choose to eat every day.

Do you or your loved ones find yourselves forgetting names of people you know? Where you put your keys, wallet, or glasses? Maybe not able to recall items on your to-do-list after a meeting? How about not able to remember where you parked your car? Even worse, do you have trouble concentrating when you read, so that you have to re-read a passage? If you or a family member have these symptoms, it’s concerning.' 


Duty to Warn: The Culprits at the CDC and FDA That Helped Create America’s Iatrogenic Over-vaccination Monster

CDC Fraud Corruption

NOTE: Iatrogenic describes injury or death caused by medical intervention. The author of this article is a retired MD.

Over the past several years I have spent many hours catching up on the voluminous research about vaccine dangers that my medical school professors never mentioned and that my continuing medical education lecturers never taught me later when I was in rural family practice. There was never any mention about adverse effects from vaccinations in the medical journals that I read.
Everything that I read misled me about the rapidly increasing vaccine injuries and deaths that paralleled the rapidly increasing incidence of autism spectrum disorders and the equally rapidly increasing incidence of childhood autoimmune disorders over the 40 years that I practiced medicine.
