Osteoporosis: an Information Deficiency

Osteoporosis: an Information Deficiency

Prevent or Reverse Osteoporosis Naturally Firstly, what is Osteoporosis? As a disease, it emerged out of obscurity only two decades ago to become a concern for women throughout the western world.  Presented as a calcium deficiency, it is actually a problem with calcium uptake - not a lack of calcium. It is a Phenomenal Growth Industry The sale of just one oestrogen drug, Premarin, grossed $940 million worldwide in 1996. (It is known that the form of oestrogen in Premarin is associated with endometrial cancer.)  The US dairy industry is thriving with its annual $20 billion of revenue. The sale of calcium supplements has spiralled upwards into the hundreds of millions of dollars. Drugs such as Fosamax, the only non-hormonal drug approved by the US FDA to treat osteoporosis.  The Dangers of These Conventional Treatments Osteoporosis is not due to oestrogen deficiency. Studies have shown that hormone levels were found to be similar in postmenopausal women, both with and without osteoporosis. Side effects of artificial HRT are cancer, stroke, bloating. breast tenderness or swelling. swelling in other...

A Nutritional Solution to Depression

A Nutritional Solution to Depression

About Depression The great majority of us will experience a "reactive" depression during our lives, in response to a death or disaster. Others experience depression as a chronic condition. “While many think of their brain as the organ in charge of their mental health, your gut may actually play a far more significant role.”—Dr. Joseph Mercola An estimated 40 percent of people will experience depression, and only 20 percent of these seeks treatment from a doctor. Less than one third report that the drugs help. For those who want to feel better without the side-effects of drugs, there are nutritional and lifestyle alternatives to antidepressants. Herbal Treatments Unfortunately, over half of Americans still erroneously believe that depression is a character flaw, so shame and embarrassment keep them from seeking professional help. For these reasons and more, 80% of people with depression symptoms never get medical treatment. Treating depression with prescription drugs has largely been a failure. There’s a surprising array of herbal supplements that may be better than prescription antidepressants. Some of the best are Arctic...

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...

The Skinny on Body pH

The Skinny on Body pH

  Why pH is Important for Health How to help your body regulate pH  How bicarbonate of soda can be useful What is pH? Just a quick science 101... pH stands for "potential hydrogen" and measures hydrogen ions or H+ in solutions. In the body's case, solutions are fluids and tissues. The pH scale ranges from 0-14. Seven is neutral (as in pure water). Each number below seven is increasingly acidic. Each number above seven is increasingly alkaline. An excess of H+ ions will tie up oxygen within the body, making it less available to cells. All body systems will be affected negatively if pH is out of balance. Chronic disease will eventually result.  Many people with cancer have become interested in body pH, because regulation of pH has shown very good results - using diet and sometimes bicarbonate of soda (sodium). What Should My pH Be? You don't have one pH measurement... pH varies throughout different areas of the body for practical reasons. Mucous tissues, skin and intestines...
