Leaky Gut syndrome is something you should educate yourself about. Doctors on the leading edge of research and discovery believe that inflammation caused by leaky gut is the root cause for the rapidly growing chronic disease epidemic world-wide. Now we can blame leaky gut on pesticides, herbicides, other environmental toxins, vaccines, GMOs, and many other causes. The truth is, there are too many sources for micro biome disfunction than we can name.Watch this interview with Dr. Zack Bush. I started it at 3m50s because it’s an interview and this is where the story of Dr. Bush’s journey and eventual discovery begins.

USDA ‘Organic-Washing’: Another Way To Mislead The U.S. Consumer?

USDA 'Organic-Washing': Another Way To Mislead The U.S. Consumer?

USDA organic certification affords the U.S. consumer one of the only food quality protections available today, but does it really guarantee a product is chemical free?

What’s a consumer to do today? Between cause- and patently false-marketing, looking beneath the surface appearances of product packaging and advertising becomes a necessity, lest we harm ourselves or the environment unknowingly, or support industries that don’t have our best interests in mind.

The Diet Soft Drink Deception

In pursuit of better health, many people have been led by marketing and media to make the switch from sugar to artificial sweeteners. But, though eliminating sugar is undoubtedly a good health move, it is not so clear that replacing it with artificial sweeteners is. A large new Canadian study has uncovered the genuinely sour side to artificial sweeteners.

The Inconvenient Truth

After attending several online health programs, it’s time to summarize in an article. I’ve spent over 10-12 hours each on their key programs:

  • The Truth About Cancer – TY Bollinger
  • The Truth About Vaccines – TY Bollinger
  • GMOs Revealed – Patrick Gentempo

I want to provide the “Reader’s Digest” version of these – they’re packed with research and scientific studies that have mainly been suppressed from mainstream media.

I want to avoid telling you “why” things are happening because I don’t want to be labelled a conspiracy theorist. You can draw your own conclusions after I summarize “what” is happening.

Here is a list of bullets that I feel are well-supported by credible scientific studies (and I know the difference) and yet cover topics that are not well-known at all and most people rather than seek the science will “drink the cool-aide.”

If you’re suspicious at all that the “cool-aide” you’re drinking may be doctored beyond belief then keep reading.

Some ‘bullets” about GMOs and Roundup.

  • GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms and refer to food where the seeds have been genetically altered to achieve some purpose not inherent in the food. For instance, modification of corn to include it’s own internal insecticide and to resist heavy doses of Roundup – a herbicide made by Monsanto.
  • GMOs without Roundup at the very least will make you very sick and gradually (and in some cases not so gradually) will expose you to one or more chronics diseases including Alzheimers, heart disease, cancer, auto-immune disease, diabetes type 2, autism, obesity, and much more.
  • Roundup and both its active ingredient Glyphosate and its supposed inactive ingredients can make you very sick and gradually expose you to the chronic diseases listed above.
  • Roundup is a toxin that currently shows up in our corn and soy crops, shows up in our livestock, our groundwater and soil, our rivers, our oceans, our rain water, and in new born babies. It is ubiquitous and is everywhere.
  • Roundup and GMOs working together as they are found in our food supply are accelerating chronic disease and will ensure that within the next 20 years our healthcare system will be bankrupted.
  • The same people who make and sell Roundup make seeds, herbicides, and insecticides, and through certain interests sell drugs – most chemical companies have similar products like Syngenta and are in a position to profit from the continuation and expansion of chronic disease.
  • In America today, a scientist who conducts research on GMOs or Roundup and produces results that are not supportive of Monsanto will be attacked by the media, the White House, the FDA and EPA, and if they are an actual doctor, the AMA. Their career will be taken away and they will be ostracized from their profession.
  • Monsanto and others in the industry are immune from prosecution since Obama signed a bill to create immunity.
  • Farmers who will not purchase GMO seeds and Roundup are sued and put out of business.

Now some bullets on vaccination.

  • CDC schedule for the US – read here.
  • CDC schedule for infants 0-6 years – read here.
  • America has the largest mandatory vaccination schedule in the world – 26 vaccinations some starting at one day old.
  • Many of the vaccines include toxic substances such as Mercury and Aluminum that are in quantities already pronounced as much as 25 times the acceptable levels by the FDA.
  • Many vaccines address illnesses that have not occurred for 20 years or more.
  • In some states a child cannot go to school unless they are fully vaccinated.
  • In some states a welfare family cannot received payments unless their children are vaccinated.
  • Vaccines have been positively linked to cancer and the growing epidemic of cancer.
  • Vaccines have been positively linked to diabetes, heart disease, autism, Alzheimers, and auto-immune disease.
  • Scientists who conduct research and try to publish results that expose vaccines are discredited and put out of the industry or they disappear without explanation.
  • Vaccines are a very lucrative and profitable business.
  • Being “anti-vaccine” doesn’t make any sense. Being pro-information and gaining access to information from clinical experience and research to promote “informed consent” and fighting suppression does make sense.

Now some bullets on cancer:

  • Cancer is curable, however, neither chemotherapy nor radiation nor surgery have proven in any study to be effective against cancer and in most cases their are so toxic to patients as to shorten their lifespan.
  • Clinics all over the world have proven with very high percentages and patients outcomes that cancer can be cured without any of the traditional treatments, 100% remission can be achieved, with very few side effects and very little expense.
  • Thousands of stories and patient histories have been suppressed by the pharmaceutical companies and the AMA.
  • Cancer and long term cancer treatment is a very lucrative and profitable business.

These bullets are not the results of a theory and not the result of negative thinking. You can read each of these with the phrase, “Extensive scientific study has proven…” and you can follow the discovery already conducted on papers and emails exposed by trial proceedings and whistleblower scientists who have retired.

The valid question in the face of a huge machine that seems to have as it’s purpose to keep people sick and dependent on healthcare is – HOW DO YOU FIGHT SOMETHING THIS BIG? WHAT ARE OUR OPTIONS?

Naturally you can strategize on how to protect yourself and your family. Strong recommendations are:

  • Get control of your water system
  • Learn how to detox and how to promote your bodies natural ability to detox heavy metals and toxins
  • Buy only organic or grow your own
  • Eat only whole foods – nothing packaged
  • Reduce the amount of meat in your diet

But that battle is how you survive on a personal level while these issues are going to impact everyone we know, and our children after us.

The most credible strategy I heard after listening to many, is that there is too much corruption in politics and regulatory agencies to think that we could influence anyone no matter who many marches we conduct. All of the heroic efforts we’ve observed by many brave people have been like punching the Pillsbury Dough Boy. They’re too big, too well-entrenched, and too powerful to beat on their own turf.

So the best strategy is what we can control. Our buying power. if 15% of the population stops buying GMO products, the economics will turn the tide. Our power is in our purchasing power and they can’t do anything about it. There’s no propaganda needed and not politics involved. It’s completely legal for us all to vote by our pocket book.

  • If we start buying local from local farmers and ranchers where we can see how they raise food whether they are certified organic or not, we can by-pass the whole machine by just going to the farmer’s market.
  • If we start opting out of medications and especially the ones for “feel good” but also for cancer, diabetes, and start eating whole foods we can minimize our dependence on the big pharma companies.
  • Many can opt out of vaccinations for children – not because it’s convenient and not because it isn’t going to be hard, but because there is better than a 50% chance your children will have serious mental disorders before they’re 10 if you don’t find another alternative – even if you have to do home schooling because the school won’t accept you (private school of course is an option for some).

Just get more things under your control and don’t drink the cool-aide or believe your doctor or the media on anything. Get you and your family off the train because you know what’s down that track and you don’t need to go there to find out.


Top 5 Reasons to Never Use Splenda

Top 5 Reasons Never To Use Splenda

Splenda is marketed as a no-calorie, no-guilt sugar substitute. Blood sugar stable, it “passes right through” the body, so it’s safe for diabetics AND you won’t gain weight! Are these claims masking the ugly truth about this chemical imposter? As mounting research shows, when it comes to our diet, there is no free lunch. Read this article to explore the 5 reasons to never use Splenda.

Aging and Obesity Revisited


Let me suggest a different story about us. I’m clinically obese so I’ve spent a lot of time studying the subject.

Forget everything you thought and heard for a few minutes and consider the possibility that your situation was not so much how much you eat as it is what you eat. That’s right, consider that if you were eating the right things you could eat as much as you want and your weight would normalize.

Don’t think you have a body style or genes that determine that you’re going to be fat no matter what you eat.

Think differently.

Consider for a minute that obesity is aging you and at any moment you could reverse obesity and reverse aging as well.


Something interesting about fat cells. They are active not passive and they produce hormones so once you get some fat cells going they produce hormones that promote inflammation and a chemical imbalance which encourages your body to produce and store more fat.

Meanwhile if you beat yourself up enough and stress over being fat, you system reacts to that stress by…you guessed it… producing and storing more fat.

It is a cycle that is self-perpetuating but not one that you can’t conquer.


We all know this without having anyone tell us but now after 20 years of being overweight I have finally realized that gradually every year the additional weight and chemical imbalance takes it toll on the body and all its organs.

It slows down your thyroid so that you store more fat and feel slower and have less energy.

It forms around your organs and begins to slow those and make them malfunction – organs like your liver – the thing that helps purify and filter your blood.

And gradually being overweight takes a toll on every organ in your body and as your organs slow down or malfunction, you begin to age and feel bad.

It’s not natural for this to happen. Everyone assumes that the human body was built to age. It’s not aging, it the accumulation of years and years of eating the wrong foods until you body can no longer eliminate and toxins and junk it’s been filtering and eliminating.

We’re not a healthy society. More people are suffering from diabetes and heart disease and Alzheimers than ever before in history. We have dozens of auto-immune symptoms caused by our food and our medications themselves that attack our bodies and cause pains of all kinds and the pharmaceutical industry is having a field day making up drugs that provide some symptomatic relief but never cure anything.


Our food supply is tainted and is contributing more to our condition than most anything else we can name. We’re eating packaged foods that have no nutritional value at all and we’re convinced that it’s good.

We’re eating fast foods that have no food value at all and in addition introduce all kinds of toxins into our body – too much for our partially impaired organs to handle.

We’re eating foods raised in factory farms that spread disease, dose us with antibiotics, and give us fruits and vegetables that are devoid of nutrition and loaded with toxins like Glyphosate and GMOs.

The truth that’s too basic to believe is that chronic diseases caused by these conditions and their effect on our food supply is going to bankrupt our healthcare system in the next 10-20 years.

It’s so basic that it’s unbelievable. But nevertheless the truth.


Chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimers, and many variations are on the upswing and with it obesity. Obesity is simply a symptom and not the cause of the problem. We’re getting fat because we’re eating foods that have too much of the wrong thing and in other cases none of the right things.

But to take a closer look, we start with the gut.

Your “gut” or intestinal tract, is where 80% or more of your immune system lives. You have more bacteria cells in your gut than the rest of the cells in your entire body combined. In fact, most gastroenterologists believe that as a human being we are a bundle of bacteria covered by a shell thin shell of organs and skin. Most everything that happens or doesn’t happen in the body begins in the gut with hormones activated by bacterial interaction with what we eat along with signals from our brain and other organs.

Years of feeding these bacteria the wrong things has killed most of the good bacteria and instead fed the bad guys. Now we no longer have the broad diversity that we started our lives with when we picked up our bacterial diversity in the birth canal for the first time, now we have a very mutated and narrow range of bad guys who cause inflammation and weaken our immune system.

As crazy and over-simplified as you might believe it sounds, almost every chronic disease has it’s roots in a weak immune system. For instance, cancer cells exist in every human body but it only migrates into “runaway” mode in some bodies. The immune system in your body generally can keep cancer cells in check.

And further, when you dose with radioactive material either through “chemo” or “radiation” you further weaken or kill off your immune system altogether. Meanwhile the clinics springing up all over the world in every country save the one country that has cancer treatments as one of the largest big-pharma revenue streams in the world, are curing cancer at an alarming rate by regenerating the immune system along with the bacteria and cells that reside in the gut.

Cancer research has consumed billions of dollars and decades without producing a cure. Meanwhile clinics all over the world are helping patients who were terminal to complete remission. The only people who deny this are those with a finger or toe in the revenue stream created by cancer.

The same if true of diabetes. After many years of killing off our gut, we begin to develop anti-bodies to some of our organs – those are immune cells that see our organs as the enemy and start to attack – the liver, the pancreas, the thyroid – auto-immune is just another variation of the same general theme – rampant inflammation signaled by aching joints, headaches, poor circulation, indigestion, followed by high blood sugar which now deposits itself as fat and creates obesity along with damage to every other organ in the body including the brain (Glycation of the brain being the operating mode for Alzheimers).

Each time the body deteriorates as a result of these conditions, obesity becomes one of the key byproducts. It is therefore very much a symptom but not a cause except that after years of obesity, it can now become one of many causes for the very chronic diseases it signaled.


I’ve come to think of this as the mantra of the last century of medicine. You go to the doctor, he weighs you, and unless he finds something worse, he tells you to eat less and exercise more. It’s the classic belief that overweight comes from eating too much and laziness.

But given the conditions that cause obesity, you’re going to turn less food into more fat, and more exercise into more appetite and the whole effort will be as millions of overweight people has discovered, a net zero game.

And for all of those that think will power is the key – it certainly is – but using will power to eat less and exercise more has never resulted in a lasting solution – anywhere on the planet, any time in history, never documented and never proven. It’s just the wrong idea fueled by misinformation and prejudice. And by the way, did you realize that insulin is a big business and has never cured one diabetic?


Are you going to be one of the masses who wakes and realized you’re too sick to fight back? Will you be someone who says they never learned the truth about how to stay healthy?

Nowadays there are many free online workshops you can attend rather than watching TV and you can learn about your health and the latest research no matter what your symptoms. You can learn about your conditions, learn that they are curable, and learn to take care of your own healthcare.

It’s time to do that.


Preventing Chronic Disease

Chronic Disease

It might surprise you to know that mountains of research are piling up on the idea that all of these illnesses have a common cause. Not only our country but the civilized world has been growing not only diagnosed illnesses but in many cases undiagnosed numbers of cases that are staggering..

The Common Denominator

When an isolated tribe or society in parts of the world where trade was not common are discovered, without exception these societal groups do not suffer from any of these chronic diseases. These disease occur only in modern society. When trade begins with an isolated societal group and western packaged foods and medicines are made available, all of these chronic disease begin to occur within the first generation.

Western food and medicine are clearly at the root of chronic diseases.

Where to Start

When we look at illnesses like cancer, it is clear that radiation and chemo-therapy are clearly not cures for cancer. Their longer term success rate are often shadowed by statistics for short term remission but zapping the body with radiation and burning out cancer cells that are otherwise immortal is only a temporary and very painful cure that generally kills all but the very healthy and sets the stage for hundreds of new illnesses that occur when your immune system has already failed.

The root cause of cancer is a weak immune system. The immune system carries away cancer cells which we all have all of the time. Our normal functioning body knows how to handle cancer cells but something else in our environment has weakened our immune system and made us targets for illnesses like cancer.

No Cure for Cancer

I heard someone say the other day that there was no cure yet for cancer. We were discussing the Susan G. Koman Foundation, the massive funds they have raised, and reports that they have not been involved in any research that promised a cure for cancer.

It suddenly dawned on me that everyone thinks there aren’t any cures for cancer when there clearly are as recently chronicled by the documentary, “The Truth About Cancer.” Most people are actually certain that there isn’t a cure for cancer while massive evidence exists to the contrary.

Of course confusion is created by the massive lobbies for cancer treatment. The FDA and government agencies in general have proven to be ruthless by driving alternative medicine clinics out of business, destroying all patient records and sometimes even placing physicians in jail for not prescribing the standard treatments for cancer. It’s clear from hundreds of true stories that the pharmaceutical companies intend to force their costly solutions on every cancer patient in the world as long a there is someone to pay for it.

Mechanics of a Chronic Disease

Chronic Disease generally shows up first with the weakest organ in the body. For most women that the thyroid and Hashimotos and Graves Disease begin to show up first. There are millions of cases of these illnesses and the lab test markers will often show up 10 years before systems become to strong to ignore.

In other cases, the problems show up in the liver or pancreases and the symptoms become obesity and diabetes.

The common mechanism for all of these conditions is chronic inflammation. A sustained use of the immune system until it weakens and burns out.

Pharmaceutical companies know your immune system is compromised.They’re selling you drugs that generally weaken the immune system even more. They know that almost everyone suffers from some level of auto-immune disease, a condition that has the body attacking its own organs.

The world of auto-immunity is a very fertile development environment for families and generations of drugs that do their work by suppressing an over-active immune system.

Some people have skin and nerve disorders that show up at itching or fiber myalgia and others develop a general brain fog and comes with a variety of organ failures and eventually Alzheimers. There are whole families of symptoms for skins or all of the bodily organs while the immune system attacks these and causes them to fail.

If the root cause of the auto-immune of located and addressed, the body gradually heals itself, the immune system begins to function again, and the symptoms gradually reside.

What Causes Inflammation?

There are so many competing environmental factors that it is unlikely that you suffer from just one cause but more likely there are many.

Even though you might suffer from a simple allergy to things that grow and blow outdoors, in the past 20 years we increased the potential toxins in the air. Each year we produce more chemicals and those chemicals generally go into the ground and into the air. And just like DDT, our chemicals from with a very strong PR package that causes us to believe they are entirely safe to humans only to find years later that they are not.

The current round is Round-up and Glyphosate, but soon that will be replaced just like DDT, the next bigger chemical and PR package that states that it’s much safer than the old chemicals. Most people are not only allergic to the chemicals but the genetically modified crops that go with them. Yes, most people have some allergy to GMOs.

But all of these chemicals attack the human gut in ways that we do not fully understand. But it is clear that 80% of the human immune system resides in the gut.

And among the strongest influences not yet discussed are the foods we eat. As our society developed, we replaced real live whole foods with packaged foods. We began to change how we raised beef, pork, and chicken. And slowly the amount of dangerous and toxic hormones and antibiotics has risen to the point where almost any prepared or packaged food whether vegetable, fruit, or ranch cannot be eaten without compromising your immune system.

Some of the same companies who sell the GMO seeds and Round-Up also own pharmaceutical companies who make a better profit as long as you remain ill for the rest of your life. Seems that this truth is so monstrous that most people refuse to believe it.

And you can add vaccinations to that list as well. It has been clear for a long time that pharmaceutical companies spend millions to get the law enforcement agencies to believe that those who are not vaccinated should be separated from the rest of society or forced to undergo vaccination against their will.

But meanwhile we’ve generally adopted the belief that “government knows best” without realizing that “government” is the big pharmaceutical companies and not some decision that we participated in.

Inflammation is the body’s normal response when we get a cut or an injury. But those things heal and inflammation goes away. What happens when inflammation is continuous and never goes away?

What to Do?

It would be easy to recommend a number of steps at this point to reduce inflammation but there are so many potential causes as to make any recommendation too general or incorrect as to be irrelevant.

In general I recommend:

  1. Get tested and find out what factors are causing your inflammation.
  2. Remove the root causes of inflammation.

Overall, it is clear that you cannot rely on most physicians to help you with this. Physicians other than functional medicine physicians are not educated to treat the root cause of disease. Medical school and the curriculum used is mainly funded by the pharmaceutical industry and has it primary focus on diagnosis and prescription – identify the symptoms and prescribe the drug.

Too impatient to get the lab tests done?

  1. Eliminate all grains from your diet.
  2. Eliminate all dairy from your diet.
  3. Eliminate all packaged foods from your diet.
  4. Eliminate all refined sugar and flour from your diet.
  5. Eliminate all vegetable oils from your diet.
  6. Eliminate all beef that is not 100% grass-fed and finished.
  7. Eliminate all chicken and eggs that are not 100% free range.
  8. Eat organic as often as possible.

Then see what symptoms go away.

One way to prevent or even cure cancer is found in this article by Dr. Mercola.
