Is It Gluten Intolerance – or Glyphosate

Is It Gluten Intolerance – or Glyphosate

The Modern Epidemic of "Gluten Allergy" We are all aware of what is called gluten intolerance. There is a huge market for gluten-free products. Gluten allergy is associated with celiac disease and leaky gut, which causes numerous inflammatory problems in the body, and... with Glyphosate.  Interestingly, some people from the USA found they could eat wheat products in Europe, in areas where Roundup (glyphosate) was not used on the wheat crop. So it wasn't gluten intolerance at all. And the use of Roundup is still increasing in the USA. Glyphosate and Agriculture  Wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to desiccate the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields. The withered, dead wheat plants are less taxing on the farm equipment and allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest. Are you eating wheat bread, or Roundup Bread? Monsanto recommends spraying for these crops as well: oats, non-GMO Canola, flax, peas, lentils, non-GMO soybeans, dry beans, and sugar cane. Farmers are pressured to follow the...

Cancer Stem Cells: Killing Cancer at Its Roots

Cancer Stem Cells: Killing Cancer at Its Roots

The ability to selectively target cancer cells, and cancer stem cells in particular, while leaving intact the non-tumor cells in tissue is extremely important.--Sayer Ji What are Cancer Stem Cells? Cancer stem cells (CSCs) create all of the cancer cell types. These are the cancer cells that grow more cancer cells. The inability of surgery, chemo or radiation to kill stem cells is why they work so poorly.  Nature contains thousands of compounds that have been shown to help fight cancer. Only a few of these can target and destroy cancer stem cells. Foods and Herbs that Fight CSCs Some natural cancer stem cell killers may already be known to anyone familiar with alternative anti-cancer therapies: Turmeric, a substance in the Indian spice curcumin, targets CSCs. Ginger has been shown to be up to 10,000 times more effective than certain chemotherapy drugs in killing CSCs.   Blueberries have been found to contain ellagic acid, a cancer stem cell fighter. Recently, Anticancer Research reviewed the scientific literature and published a list containing 25 compounds that...

Natural Ways to Balance Your Hormones

Natural Ways to Balance Your Hormones

“The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced, it can cause widespread, major health problems.”—Dr. Josh Axe What are Hormones? Hormones are chemical messengers secreted by glands and organs, including adrenals, ovaries, testicles, thyroid, pituitary and pancreas. The endocrine system regulates the various hormones that circulate through our body.  Signs of Imbalance Digestive issues Infertility Anxiety, depression Changes in appetite Unexplained weight loss or gain Hair loss Low libido Fatigue Insomnia Problems Caused by Imbalance Diabetes Hyperthyroidism and Grave’s Disease Hypothyroidism Estrogen dominance Adrenal fatigue Low testosterone or low estrogen Causes of Imbalance Hormonal imbalance can be caused by different factors, including: Genetic predisposition Lack of cholesterol Toxicity (due to exposure to harmful chemicals, pesticides, tobacco, viruses, excessive alcohol, etc.) Stress, lack of sleep Inflammation due to diet and lifestyle Food allergies, leaky gut syndrome, probiotic deficit Treating with Pharma Doctors will treat hormonal imbalance with thyroid medication, insulin injections, hormone replacement therapy, birth control pills and other therapies. Unfortunately, these therapies have drawbacks: Patients can become dependent on prescription drugs Drugs mask symptoms instead of solving...

Papaya (Paw Paw) for Immunity

Papaya (Paw Paw) for Immunity

What is Papaya? Papaya is the fruit of a tree-like plant (Carica papaya) native to Central America, where it was already a well-known food when Christopher Columbus first tasted it. Impressed with the sweet, buttery-textured fruit, Columbus called it the "Fruit of the Angels."  Many people think of papaya (also called paw paw in Europe and Australia, and mamao in Brazil) as an excellent digestive aid. But that is only the beginning of the health benefits of the papaya plant's fruit, seeds, and leaves.  Papaya and Cancer While anecdotal evidence about treating cancer with papaya leaf tea has circulated for some time, Dr. Nam Dang (University of Florida) and colleagues in Japan were able to document the anticancer effects of papaya extract in a laboratory setting. They used papaya leaf on ten different types of cancer cells (including breast, liver, cervix, lung, and pancreas) for 24 hours. Tumor growth was slowed, and larger doses had stronger effects. Scientists from the University of Illinois believe that papaya's high lycopene levels...
