The Untold Story

Health Signpost

This story is painful for anyone to read but I need to tell it because I have spent years studying the research that is available but not utilized or even worse, buried in the interest of the companies who’s revenue streams are threatened by it.

WHY CONSIDER A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF OUR HEALTH?

Today we generally accept the word of our institutions and doctors. We rely on them to give us the benefit of the latest research and to give us advice on how to remain safe. If the authorities tell us we need to vaccinate to stay safe, we believe and follow their advice without question. We generally believe that our government and its various agencies would not harm us and would protect us from companies that might do us harm for money.

But the facts are telling us that this is not true.

  • In spite of all the research and technology available in the medical care arena, the health of our nation and the world is rapidly declining.
  • Chronic diseases are dramatically increasing and the latest research cites our vaccines, our food, our use of chemicals, and our healthcare system as the major causes of our health crisis.
  • One of the key agencies responsible for guarding Americans from unsafe vaccines and medications has been proven to be corrupt. The agencies owns over 50 patents and must force Americans to utilize these vaccines in order to fund their salaries, bonus, and pensions. It is highly unlikely that only the CDC is corrupt – the pharmaceutical and chemical companies have penetrated and corrupted the other agencies as well.
  • Congress and our president are not willing to help us. Our congress has given the pharmaceutical industry a “get out of jail free” card by setting in place laws that allow the drug companies to escape from lawsuits for negligence of any kind and any damage their products do to our children. the US spends taxpayer money to compensate the families when they rarely win their cases to prove negligence.
  • Our food supply has been corrupted to the point where our population suffers from a situation that can only be compared to a sci-fi movie where the aliens cause the population to be infected with a virus that eventually and slowly kills everyone. Our GMO food supply even without glyphosate and dicamba is slowly causing inflammation in our gut – our microbiome – that causes widespread auto-immune disease which is the root cause for all of the diseases in the graphic at the top of this page and more. The insecticides and heavy metal toxicity from our vaccines and medications accelerate the effect of these GMOs and make them even more deadly.
  • We’re using billions of tons of chemicals for industry and farming and this humber is increasing daily. These chemicals are mainly toxic to humans and they are now found in our groundwater, rainwater, air, and oceans. These are showing up in fetal blood samples. The practice of utilizing chemicals has poisoned the earth and there is very credible research that points this out as well as the opinion of the Hague tribunal that convicted Monsanto of crimes against humanity.

A SOBERING CONCLUSION

We can’t read and accept even half of the above without realizing painfully that nobody is going to guard and protect us from these influences. The overall influence of billions of dollars of revenue from these various industries has finally twisted the fabric of our nation and there is nobody left to protect us save ourselves. We are alone.

It’s hard to believe that our governments and corporations would continue to act so blindly as to perpetuate this virtual genocide unless you come to realize that these people have come to adopt and believe the very narrative they have fed to the American public and to congress. They have fallen victim themselves to their narrative. If they really knew how many billions they will kill with their poisons, I don’t think they would continue but they are blind to the facts and that means that we must find another path if we wish to live out our lives and have our children live out their lives without pain and suffering.

Right now, the statistics say we are losing that battle. Our average lifespan is shorter and our rates of chronic disease are traveling upscale to the point that long before they kill everyone our healthcare systems will go bankrupt – this will happen on diabetes alone.

INFLAMMATION IS THE CULPRIT

Inflammation is a condition that internally is just like it sounds. Our immune system detects things that shouldn’t be there and it sets out to cause inflammation as a temporary method for ridding the body of the infection or foreign material.

Of course the body wasn’t meant to be inflamed 24 X 7. When it is, then our bodily functions start to break down. Our immune system becomes ineffective and that opens the door for everything from obesity to cancer.

And this isn’t speculation. We have plenty of very high quality scientific research – mainly suppressed – that proves that these conditions exist and are triggered by the many factors being introduced into our bodies from many different sources.

WHAT’S CAUSING THE INFLAMMATION?

The sources of inflammation are multi-factorial – that is, there are many different sources and they are all capable of adding together and even accelerating each other.

Agriculture – we’re been growing our major crops – corn, soy, wheat, and more using genetically modified seeds. We’re told these are safe and the same as the real thing but clearly that is not based on any scientific evidence. Rather the evidence is that these GMO grains are toxic to our systems. Over time, they make us react as if our foods are causing mild to severe allergic reactions when we eat them. The chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers used in our agriculture are being used in increasing amounts every year. They are all toxic at much lower levels.

Weather Modification – we have a history of using heavy metals sprayed into our atmosphere for the past 40 years or more to act as reflectors of ultra-violet and to enable forced production of rain. The heavy metal nano-particals fall to earth and move into our groundwater which in turn moves to our oceans contaminating fish both farmed and natural natives.

Vaccination – with over 50 mandatory vaccination strains in 26 injections for children starting at one-day old, we have a massive amount of heavy metals far exceeding any known safe dosage being injected into our children’s blood streams. There are no known safety studies and the studies that have not been suppressed prove that not only are heavy metals being injected (your body is designed to eliminate heavy metals you ingest but not those that come unnaturally into your blood stream bypassing digestion). There are 200 more in the pipeline and vaccines are a trillion dollar business that the pharmaceutical companies who kill to maintain. The increasing numbers for child autism alone should be signaling a need for change – we’re projected to see 1 child in 4 with autism in the next 10 years.

Chemical Exposure – the list is so long that I hesitate to even get started. Chemicals toxic to our health and a root cause of inflammation are found in our kitchens, our laundry, our bathrooms and more. Even our drinking water has fluoride and other chemicals and metals that we don’t expect to be drinking. And by the way, boiling our water only affects biologicals but does nothing about heavy metals and other toxins.

SOME SOLUTIONS THAT HAVEN’T OR WON’T WORK

So by now you’re thinking this might be a story with a happy ending? And that all we need to do is activate the population. Unfortunately I don’t think that’s going to work.

  • Working through our elected officials – you need to realize that there is so much money riding on this that most of our elected officials wouldn’t survive without this revenue stream. Government agencies could not survive without the revenue from patents and various sources tied to this revenue stream. Thousands of people would be out of a job if we killed the chemical problem. And remember that these companies have billions to spend on misinformation, propaganda, and even their brand of terrorism – that’s right, if you think that our farmers haven’t seen the black suburbans full of ex-military show up when they refuse to use Monsanto seeds, you’d be wrong.
  • Working through our agencies – the big pharma and agricultural companies already have these agencies so heavily infiltrated that there’s no chance that you’re going to influence them no matter how many people you get to march on their front doors.
  • Working through the courts – when the Hague Tribunal condemned Monsanto for crimes against humanity, many people thought that would be the end of them. As far as we can tell, Monsanto didn’t even hiccup. These companies are impossible to kill or even wound. If you seriously shut down the drug companies, many of the television networks would collapse because most of their advertising revenue comes from pharma.
  • Protesting – the opposition has the government running interference for them. That’s means they have the policy force and the armed services. It’s highly unlikely that any of us can mount enough protests to make them notice our actions.

THEN WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?

The hardest question to answer is “What strategy will work against this problem?”

The problem is that all of these corporation interests have had too many years to entrench and the families who are ultimately behind all of this don’t really believe in unlimited population growth.

First, we have to believe that a top-down conversion or transformation is an impossibility. Too many agencies and companies are already organized to not only resist but to discredit and neutralize and amount of science brought to bear. It’s not going to work to think we can “change minds” with an overwhelming flood of irrefutable evidence – if we think that, we’re grossly underestimating the power of billions of dollars set in place to own all of the media outlets, institutions, and research. You just aren’t thinking big enough.

So that leaves you with grass roots action of some kind. The power of organized and wide-spread action suggests a solution. But what is the right “trim tab” that makes everything change with the least effort?

It has been suggested that a widespread boycott of agricultural products once it reached 15% would significantly damage the agricultural and chemical industries.

A coordinated withdrawal from Vaccine programs would only be successful if it reached a 50-80% level. But this has some serious challenges for parents who have no exemptions in their state and would have to face the inability to register their children in school.

It’s a little harder to envision a boycott of pharmaceuticals – someone with diabetes taking insulin has very few choices without seeing a different doctor and operating outside the normal insurance-driven traditional medical machine. And those taking blood pressure medications to mask the underlying influence of auto-immune disease caused by exposure to food products or other chemicals have very few options to discontinue medications without risking serious complications.

Functional Medicine is taking hold in America and I have no doubt that in 20 years we’ll have insurance companies aligned and supporting the their highly effective methods for reversing all these chronic disease processes including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, auto-immune, and more. But that’s doesn’t point to a more urgent solution. Long before 20 years, we’ll bankrupt our medical system with the extraordinary escalation of these chronic diseases.

We apparently need a strategy that forces our insurance systems to massively include Functional Medicine now. And you can be absolutely certain that the multi-trillion dollar industry of pharmaceuticals will see this as a threat and spend billions on disinformation, counter-research, and created narratives in the major media to neutralize such a transaction – in fact, you can bet they have already anticipated this and infiltrated the major insurance companies with people who will allow them to influence and control these decisions – that’s how they work.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON’T SOLVE THIS?

It seems clear what will happen if we do nothing and try to ignore this. It seems clear that we need a much smarter options than the ones I have suggested.

Because it is clear that as a society, our numbers are clearly going in the wrong direction and that everything and everyone we have put our faith in has failed, we should be able to make a commitment to a solution.

Consider this thought pattern – hundreds of millions of dollars have gone into “finding the cure for cancer” and the pink ribbon is almost universally recognized as the symbol for this effort. But today, if you get cancer, you will be faced with the same solutions that existed 20 years ago – surgery, chemo, and radiation – sure the machines are better but the basic idea hasn’t changed in spite of all the “research” paid for under the pink ribbon.

Consider that thought process. Why do we keep taking anyone’s word for the fact that our food is safe, our pharmaceuticals are safe, our chemicals are safe, and so on.

Perhaps you think that the idea that all of these things aren’t safe is just a conspiracy theory? If I was making billions of products in these arenas, wouldn’t you spend a billion on a disinformation campaign that shaped the narrative toward conspiracy theories?

Unfortunately, we are just that easy to manipulate and we’ll have to get smarter to survive.

5 Food-Medicines That Could Quite Possibly Save Your Life

Food Medicines That Could Quite Possibly Save Your Life

Some of the most powerful medicines on the planet are masquerading around as foods and spices. While they do not lend themselves to being patented, nor will multi-billion dollar human clinical trials ever be funded to prove them efficacious, they have been used since time immemorial to both nourish our bodies, and to prevent and treat disease.

Psychobiotics: Bacteria For Your Brain?

Psychobiotics: Bacteria For Your Brain?

Every functional medicine psychiatrist has case stories of the ‘probiotic cure’ – of a patient with debilitating symptoms, often obsessive compulsive range, whose symptoms remitted completely with dietary change and probiotic supplementation. Is this voodoo or is it based on a growing understanding of the role of the microbiome in mental health and behavior?

The Dangers of GMO Insulin for Type 2 Diabetics No One Talks About

The Dark Side of GMO Insulin for Type 2 Diabetics No One Talks About

A growing body of concerning research indicates that conventional medicine’s standard of care for type 2 diabetes, including synthetic insulin and oral anti-diabetic drugs, may actually increase morbidity and mortality. On the other hand, recently validated traditional approaches relying on plant-based medicines may greatly mitigate the global diabetes epidemic.

State of Health 2017

It’s Time to Recap Where We are Today in Promoting Health Over 70

I have attended well over 200 hours of health conferences in 2017 and read hundreds of articles on the topic. I have joined organizations that provide abundant research and expert opinion. I have reviewed clinical practice notes from hundreds of doctors. I would like to offer some perspective about where I think we are and the challenges we face not only with our own health but that of future generations.

The Challenges

Let’s start with a list of the most significant challenges we face in managing our health.

Our Food Production

Chemicals – our primary food sources are being sprayed with ever-increasing amounts of herbicides and insecticides. Not only for these purposes but now Roundup and similar products have been discovered to work well as desiccants – chemicals that help dry out crops after harvest. So spraying has increased dramatically for this purpose because it allows fields to produce two crops per year instead of one. The chemicals of course increase our exposure. They interact with our gut bacteria and disrupt our hormones, kill off necessary gut bacteria used for our immune system and digestion. Leaky gut syndrome now causes our gut to allow proteins from our foods into a blood stream mimicking our organs and causing an epidemic of auto-immune disease which cause our body to attack our organs which then deteriorate over a period of time and show up as “aging” or endocrine failure of liver, pancreas, thyroid, pituitary, etc. Of course cancer cells develop as the bodies reaction to these conditions of extreme inflammation and disruption.

Soil Depletion – even in an ideal world where no chemicals are used or overspray our organic crops, our soil has been depleted through industrial agriculture so it’s now very unlikely that you will get the vitamins and minerals you need from your foods.

Packaged Food – most people don’t have to worry about soil depletion, however, because their diet consists of foods that don’t depend on agriculture. Packaged foods and fast foods are generally not made from fresh, raw, live, and whole foods. Therefore the soil mineral content is not a significant factor in most of these packaged or fast foods.

Genetically-Modified Seeds – many of our crops and a list that is increasing are grown with seeds that have been genetically modified to withstand chemicals, kill insects, and do things that the FDA and EPA say are safe – without having tested or allowed the foods to be tested. Independent tests have already proven that GMOs are harmful to humans in very serious ways. These crops are killing animals and people all over the world and in the US they comprise perhaps 70% or more of our crops of wheat, corn, soy, and more.

The Political and Social Barriers

War on Organic Family Farmers – the chemical and agricultural companies are waging a barely hidden war on small organic farmers. Suits against farmers for violating patents on seeds that are blown into adjacent organic fields by the wind are shutting down family farms who don’t have the money to defend themselves against armies of black suits and black suburbans arriving on property without invitation to threaten and coerce farmers and their families.

Media Owned by Pharmaceutical and Agriculture Big Business – our media is dominated by companies who spend billions on advertising. They decide what information we see and what information we don’t. If someone discovered a miracle cure for cancer – and they have – you would not see any coverage by any major media outlet in the world or any scientific study from any university in the world for this reason. You feel your education continues because of news coverage, articles, and television coverage of events and stories – but all of these are carefully chosen to shape and mold your opinions to conform to a narrative that is created by these big interests. For instance, you will watch 20 advertisements for drugs that will mask but not cure symptoms of auto-immune diseases – those that affect the immune system – and those drugs will be extremely expensive and require that you take them the rest of your life.

Demonized Supplements – you’ll note that the same media will demonize and marginalize supplements such as vitamin C unless they themselves can brand and sell it even though highly respected doctors have used these supplements with patients who got better or even had remissions on diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and more.

Vaccinations – in the US we require over 60 vaccinations before age 18 and deny children access to school without these even though most of these “diseases” have not had any significant case activity in over 40 years. Most of these vaccines contain mercury, aluminum, or other toxins which have been linked to autism and auto-immune disease. The vaccine business is a multi-billion dollar business with potentially higher profitability than any other product from pharmaceutical companies. These companies own the government agencies that regulate them and plan to introduce 300 more vaccines in the next 20 years.

Geoengineering – we may not fully understand why, but for at least 40 years, our governments have been spraying heavy metals into the atmosphere in order to control the weather. Now some say it’s weather warfare and we have to admit, anyone who can cause a hurricane cat 5 in your country pretty much doesn’t need to send in the troops except afterward when we can claim we providing humanitarian aid. And some say that our ozone layer is so depleted that we have no choice but to spray to reflect the sun’s rays (solar radiation management). Everyone has noticed how hot the sun is in recent years as UV B rays are starting to reach the earth as never before.

Increases in Disease – we are seeing dramatic increases in chronic disease and for the first time our average lifespans are dropping. Not only has the battle to cure cancer failed in spite of billions that ostensibly is going into research, but chronic non-infectious diseases are the #1 killers. Soon the cost of healthcare in America will be the #1 cost and will bankrupt our economy.

War on Cancer – although billions have been raised for this war, the only output of this massive machine are pharmaceutical money-makers – chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Just like the War on Poverty or the War on Drugs – we seem to create more of whatever we wage war against but spend a lot of useless money doing it.

A Hopeless Outlook

Perhaps these things are so formidable that our only response can be hopelessness – giving up is the option that most older people take.

Another View

There is another view emerging and many highly intelligent and credible people in alternative medicine are adopting it. Let’s review some of the key points.

The Body is Timeless and Ageless – we have learned through our increasing knowledge of genetics and the application of “Functional” or “Integrative” medicine that our bodies were made to last forever. Our body replaces cells through a regular cycle anywhere from a few days to 6 months. We literally were designed to replace our own damaged cells. And our body was designed to “take out the trash” – that is, eliminate toxins and things that shouldn’t be there – including cancer cells which exist in the body all the time and are neutralized and removed by an immune system that was designed to be more than up to the task. Our body has the ability to completely cure and prevent diabetes, obesity (which is a disease not a condition of overeating), heart disease, autism, Alzheimer’s, MS, and everything else.

Food is Medicine – Hippocrates said it but it was largely ignored and misunderstood for centuries until our science of genetics and epigenetics caught up with us and helped us to understand that our food – the plants that grow on the earth naturally and seasonally are substances that talk to our cells and our genes, transmit information that is needed and required by our bodies, and contain the “code” to heal almost anything that might try to gain a foothold in the human body. Food is information and is transmitted through our “gut” throughout the body to activate systems and processes that are normal and natural to the human body. The body can only live for about 60 years deprived of this input before it breaks down – a process we call aging.

The Planet is Being Held Hostage by People Who are Ignorant to These Facts – we don’t give IQ tests to politicians and leaders and if we did they would be the ones designing the tests. We have to wake up and realize that we’ve given control of the planet to people who believe that making money is the goal, and are capable of thinking that population control is a legitimate agenda when it comes to chemical production, food production, pharmaceuticals, and warfare. If you want to look the other way and be a part of a warring nation that wages war constantly all over the world for resources and then starves its citizens and renders them homeless, OK, but don’t act like you don’t know it.

Look – all the rich people believe that over-population is a threat to their quality of life. It’s very possible they’re right. We have too many people already to sustain the planet and we’re going to double in ten years (INFERNO anyone?) – so it’s not a stretch to think that those in power are perfectly willing to have a stacked deck of chemicals, pseudo-foods, drugs, toxins, geo-engineering, and pollution of every kind let loose on the planet. Do you recall ever seeing an article that added up the combined effect of all of these deadly sources? I don’t think so because nobody cares about adding them up – they just know that the rate of disease is going up (in the right direction) and one of two children will be born with autism in another 20 years. No need to keep score as to which of these causes is the deadliest – just combine them – mandatory vaccines introduce aluminum into a one-day old children that sensitizes genes and by 5 years the aluminum in the food supply and air bump that over 100ug and poof – the brain cannot detox fast enough, inflammation from other sources has shut down the body’s detox anyway, and suddenly you have a person who can’t talk and care for themselves.

Potential Solutions

So how can you minimize the impact that all of this has on you?

The Power You Have

You don’t know it but you have a vote everyday when you go to the supermarket, when you go to the drugstore, when you decide what to watch on TV. Everything you do is a vote that cannot be ignored when we all make it together.

For instance, if you stop buying packaged foods from your supermarket, pretty soon you’ll see more and more local organic produce appear on the isles. If you drop the demand for packaged foods with mountains of sugar in them, pretty soon you’ll see packaged foods that attempt to be healthier. But don’t stop there. If you keep refusing to eat packaged foods of any kind, the minute it reaches the “tipping point” – about 15% of sales is the estimate – the companies trying to sell you that will have to go out of business.

Another example – if you start going to Farmer’s Markets and supporting your local farmers who grow organically but can’t afford the certification, you’ll start cooking and eating as close to organic as you can and more small farmers will be encouraged to purchase and grow organic seeds, rotate crops to make the soil healthier, and with your support, start to resist all of the influences that would impact our food supply. Doing that is already sending a clear message and one that impact the pocket books of those who would rather sell you food that makes you sick and then sell you drugs that mask the symptoms.

OK so your doctor prescribes a medication for your diabetes. Maybe you have to take that for a while – but if you start to realize that food is medicine and start eating like a human being you’ll find that you need less and less of that “medicine” from the drugstore and that sends a message as well. Don’t accept a doctor’s advice who says you’ll be on that medication the rest of your life. Thousands of people have already proven that’s not true so take the medicine but do the things that will cause you body to heal. It happens all the time and if you don’t know about it that’s just because you haven’t been paying attention.

You have the power to NOT GIVE UP. And you have the power to make lifestyle changes that improve not only your lifespan but the QUALITY of your life.

I have a relative who everyone said was “AS HEALTHY AS A HORSE” until at 82 she has a quadruple bypass. She ate meat at every meal, bacon 5 times a week, and sugar with every meal in some form. Turns out she wasn’t that healthy but as soon as she got home she began eating the way she always had – pizza, bread, grains of all kinds, dairy, canned and packaged foods. I believe that she just didn’t want to change what she was eating because she liked it, she had the habit of eating it, and be damed if she’s going to change her habits with only 10-20 years left. (I’ll try to replicate her thinking but in truth you never really can be certain you understand someone else’s thinking)

As I am 73, I understand this point of view. Too hard to change. Easier to just endure the pain and then die. Except you don’t really understand what you’re saying. Endure the pain? Do you actually understand that these chronic diseases will put you on insulin, blood thinners, blood pressure medication, and more. And you’ll end up more than likely in a bed or having your feet amputated? And your children will be the ones who have to take care of you – if they have money then they’re lucky because they can shuffle you off to a home somewhere but if not, then you end up in a bed IN THEIR HOME!

PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHAT CHOICES YOU’RE MAKING – DON’T GET LAZY AND MAKE THE LIVES OF YOUR CHILDREN A LIVING HELL!

Read “A Letter from Your Grandchildren

But you do have the power to make decision. It’s not all that hard to do.

  • Cut sugar out of your diet – don’t eat anything with refined sugar added – that means no soft drinks, no “Iced tea” and no pastries, cakes, candy, cookies – eliminate anything with sugar as an ingredient – doing this alone will have a major impact on your health over a period of months and years.
  • Reduce things that have a high amount of natural sugars – be moderate with fruits and especially juices.
  • Cut out dairy products –  milk only does a body good if you’re a calf. It was made to grow calves. It has a devastating effect on humans even if it’s not loaded with antibiotics, pesticides, and hormones. For the most part you can’t get dairy products without these things so just give it up.
  • Cut out factory-farmed meats. Your diet should be 90% fresh plant-based organic and 10% at most grass-fed and pastured beef, chicken, or pork. You don’t have to eat meat – fresh farm-raised organic vegetables have all the protein you need but if you do eat meat then limit yourself to 4oz and only the best quality pasture-raised and grass feed organic animals. The increased price will be offset by the reduced quantity. And unless you know how to detox yourself for heavy metals give up FISH – you can’t really find it anywhere without loads of heavy metals and unless it is tested you just can’t take the chance because you’re already carrying around heavy metals from years of collection – guess where your body stores that? Well what do most people nowadays get as they age? (Alzheimer’s, dementia) it’s stored in the brain.
  • Cut out grains – flour of any kind is refined – take it out of your diet and minimize “whole grains” – they’re mainly not that anyway but at least cutting out flour gets you out of the zone where things turn to sugar in your bloodstream faster than sugar itself.

Just doing these few things will not only send a message to your food and medical suppliers, but will start you on the path to health. Take the organic vegetables and fruits you can get at the market or Farmer’s Market, lightly steam the broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, squash, etc, and make a salad. Eat rice and potatoes in moderation and not every day. You’ll dramatically change your lifestyle and be well on your way to eliminating the medications you won’t need and ensuring your children won’t have to look after you.

If your meals were the high points of your day, then find something else to be your high point and let meals become a enjoyable way you ensure your health and that you don’t become a burden to your family and future generations.
