The fruits of the medical industrial complex

The moral collapse of Western Medicine

How in the world did the U.S. change from having the best scientists in the world who were discovering vitamins, minerals, vaccines and cures for disease, to modern times, where the only medicine available is toxic with horrific side effects, and where nutrient-void, chemical-laden food is being sold at almost every restaurant and grocery store, all in the name of corporate profits that keep the public sick and in need of expensive care?

In the early 1900’s, America was chock full of small farms and families who ate fresh food from those farms. Cancer, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer’s barely existed because the soil was rich in nutrients and minerals, and if you did get sick, a doctor would come to your home and give you some herbal tinctures or natural remedies, and that was that.

Then, after World War II, many families left their rural farms and moved closer to factories and began eating processed food that was canned and bagged, lacking the nutrients they had just a decade earlier. Then, fast food operations like McDonalds and Burger King opened up franchises all over America, feeding the public saturated fat and sugar-loaded meals that were hot, cheap, and convenient.

The United States of America is the land of the free and the home of … toxic food and venomous medicine, with chronic care waiting for its next 80 million victims. Here are some basic statistics of a country riddled with disease:

Cancer: 1,500,000 diagnosed each year; over 50% will die of it.
Diabetes: 25,000,000 people are diabetics right now (including children); 80,000,000 are borderline.
Heart Disease and Strokes: 81,000,000 (every third adult) has some type of cardiovascular disease.
Alzheimer’s Disease: 5,400,000 have Alzheimer’s right now (every 8th senior)
Birth defects: One in every 33 babies is born with one (accounts for 20% of all infant deaths). (http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/birthdefects/data.html)

Most U.S. politicians have no ethics and no morals

Once upon a time, insider trading was a scary law that meant prison time for those who violated it. Now, politicians make money off wars they declare themselves, and health insurance companies invest in fast food operations that slowly kill their own clients. Pharmaceutical companies (Merck, Pfizer, Bayer, Bristol Meyers, etc.) are run by CEO’s who served as Governors, Senators, and heads of the FDA, and the Supreme Court itself seats Judges who worked for major pharmaceutical firms, and who will return to those jobs after writing new legislation to benefit their current investments.

Make no mistake, the pesticides used on most U.S. farms give humans cancer, and the politicians who support genetically mutated foods know it. GMO means that the seedlings of fruits and vegetables are spliced with toxic pesticides in a lab, so even if you wash off your food, you are still eating dioxin, the same toxic chemical (Agent Orange) the U.S. dumped on Vietnam which gave our own soldiers cancer.

The agencies you trust so much (FDA/CDC/AMA/CDC/ACS/Major Insurance Companies) support toxic food and toxic medicine

Politicians are supposed to represent the greater good of the people, but now politics is about bastardizing the system for as much money as possible before getting ousted from office 4 years later. Food, medicine and vaccines have become toxic catapults for profiteering by Big Pharma and Government agencies (undercover corporations).

Ever wonder how health insurance companies drum up future business? They invest in corporations whose products cause chronic degenerative disease, driving people’s health care costs through the roof. The U.S. and Canadian health insurance giantsown nearly $2 billion worth of stock in fast food giants like McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, and Taco Bell.

Marvelous mangosteen!

Wonder fruit: Mangosteen

Times of India

No, this isn’t some exotic variety of mango. Native to Indonesia, Mangosteen is sweet and tangy, juicy, and somewhat fibrous, with an inedible, reddish purple rind.

Researchers often call it a wonder fruit due to its innumerable healing properties…

- Mangosteen contains more than 40 biologically-active, natural chemical compounds called Xanthones – powerful antioxidants and immune system boosters. Alpha-mangosteen, for example, is a very potent antioxidant. Gamma-mangosteen is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Garcinone E is a strong anti-tumour agent.

- Scientists have found that the fruit is helpful in preventing and possibly even stopping a wide range of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic diseases.

- Mangosteen also contains Polysaccharides. This is a highly potent anti-cancer and anti-bacterial plant compound. They help block a mutated cell’s ability to stick to healthy cells to help stop the spread of cancer, and are specially effective against intracellular bacteria.

 

Homeopathy for Alzheimer’s disease

Homeopathic treatment slows progression of Alzheimer’s disease

A huge leap in the natural treatment of Alzheimer’s disease was recently reported at the Neuroscience Conference in Washington by the National Center for Homeopathy. Homeopathic manufacturer and research organization, Heel, presented studies on a multi-target, combination homeopathic medicine that has proven effective for both relieving symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and influencing the reduction of the formation of amyloid plaques in the brains of patients. In-vitro and in-vivo studies were conducted in France and Finland, and confirm that subjects had enhanced learning abilities, an increase in their ability to recognize objects, and improvement in memory performance after treatment.

Classical homeopathy also offers patients hope. Classical homeopathy uses one remedy at a time, and may take a similar multi-targeted approach to treating Alzheimer’s; however, the practitioner may either alternate or use several remedies in succession rather than giving them together in combination. The announcement from Heel allows people, who would otherwise not seek homeopathic treatment, to feel more confident of its efficacy.

What is Alzheimer’s Disease?

Alzheimer’s is an affliction of the brain causing the gradual deterioration of brain cells that result in the loss of memory, cognitive abilities and intelligence. The disease afflicts primarily the elderly and symptoms are often seen as early as the late 40s. Alzheimer’s is the primary cause of dementia, a decline in brain performance, thinking skills and reasoning. The disease is caused by two abnormalities including neurofibrillary tangles (or bunches of altered proteins inside brain cells) and amyloid plaques (or fragments of proteins forming outside the brain cells).
