Vitamin D – Nature’s “Medicine Chest”
Raise your hand if you think sunlight causes skin cancer. For decades, doctors and the “cancer industry” have warned us stay out of the “dangerous” sunlight and/or use plenty of sunscreen. But is this good advice? Did you know Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis and autism? Vitamin D isn’t really a “true” vitamin, as we don’t need food to attain it. Natural sunlight allows our body to create vitamin D and even destroys excessive amounts. How does that happen? When the sun’s ultraviolet B (“UVB”) rays hit your skin, they trigger a precholesterol molecule (7-dehydrocholesterol), which is then turned into Vitamin D3 (aka “cholecalciferol”). The mechanisms by which vitamin D reduces the risk of cancer are fairly well understood. They include enhancing calcium absorption, inducing cell differentiation, increasing apoptosis (programmed cell death), reducing metastasis and proliferation, and reducing angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels). Researchers in Belgium appear to be the first to show that vitamin D also lowers C-reactive protein (CRP), a measure of inflammation in the body, in critically ill patients. CRP is elevated when there is inflammation in the body, and chronic inflammation is a risk factor for a number of conditions including coronary heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Research studies have shown a direct connection between Vitamin D deficiency and heart disease. The authors of a 2006 article in the American Journal of Public Health state, after a review of more than 60 studies on Vitamin D and Cancer, that cancer occurrence and death could be reduced with improved levels of Vitamin D in the body. The incidence of breast cancer could be reduced by 50% and colon cancer by 80%! And a June 2007 Creighton University School of Medicine study indicated that appropriate levels of vitamin D3 (and calcium) reduced the risk of cancer by a staggering 77%! A 2009 study by a group of Leeds University researchers actually found that higher levels of vitamin D were linked to improved skin cancer survival odds, while other studies have found that vitamin D has a connection to a strong immune response in the body. Don’t fall for the “sunscreen myth.” The idea that sunscreen prevents cancer is a myth promoted by a greedy “tag-team” effort between the “cancer industry” and the sunscreen industry. Sunlight is actually good for you (especially the UVB rays), and sunscreens filter out UVB! The main chemical used in sunscreens to filter out UVB is octyl methoxycinnamate (aka “OMC”) which has been shown to kill mouse cells even at low doses. Plus, it was also shown to be particularly toxic when exposed to sunshine. And guess what? OMC is present in 90% of sunscreen brands! The most popular brands of sunscreens also contain other toxic chemicals (such as dioxybenzone and oxybenzone) that are absorbed through the skin where they enter the bloodstream, generate free radicals, wreak havoc on the immune system, damage the liver and the heart, and even promote systemic cancer. Titanium dioxide, another common ingredient in sunscreens, has been classified as “a potential occupational carcinogen” by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. If you want to use a natural sunscreen, try aloe vera gel. Also, we use Dr. Mercola’s “Natural Sunscreen with Green Tea” for the kiddos if we are going to be out in the sun for prolonged periods of time. I am *NOT* saying that you should sit out in the sun until you’re red and crisp like a lobster! Burning will damage cellular DNA, which leads to cancer. If you’re pale as a ghost, you probably want to start out with just a few minutes in the sun each day. My wife, Charlene, can sit in the sun for an hour (or more) each day and not get burned. But you need to understand that antioxidants (in fruits and vegetables) and proper nutrition (specifically the B vitamins) will prevent sunburn. Here’s a little trivia: the term “Red Neck” actually originated from the early American colonists (in the South) who would get sunburned necks during the summer. But their “red necks” were not just a result of being in the sun all day. They were a result of a nutritional deficiency. You see, the colonists didn’t understand how to properly process corn like the American Indians did. The Indians processed corn using potash (which is highly alkaline) that makes the B vitamins in corn available for assimilation during digestion. But the American settlers (too arrogant to follow the food preparation ways of the Indian “savages”) would simply grind up their corn and consume it as corn flour (corn meal). This resulted in vitamin B deficiencies, which (when coupled with too much sun exposure) would result in their “red necks.” By the way, the nutritional deficiency link to sunburn has been supported with multiple studies, including a study published in the 2004 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. A study just published in May 2012 found that people exposed to more sunlight had a significantly lower risk of many types of cancer. This study followed more than 450,000 white, non-Hispanic subjects aged 50-71 years from diverse geographic areas in the USA. A total of 75,000 participants in the study contracted cancer. The study found that 12 types of cancer were reduced in those subjects exposed to more sunlight. These included cancers of the lungs, prostate, pancreas, colon, thyroid and many other types. This research confirms the protective effect of Vitamin D for many types of cancer (as no other known factors in sun exposure would account for these findings) and provides even more evidence that sun exposure is beneficial and that the routine use of sunscreens is imprudent. [Lin SW, Wheeler DC, Park Y, Cahoon EK, Hollenbeck AR, Michal Freedman D, Abnet CC. Prospective study of ultraviolet radiation exposure and risk of cancer in the U.S. Int J Cancer. 2012 Apr 26. doi: 10.1002/ijc.27619.] In light of the fact that the best place to get vitamin D is natural sunlight AND the fact that vitamin D deficiency can lead to cancer, diabetes, and numerous other life threatening diseases, the warning to “stay out of the sun” is completely irrational! And despite the importance of vitamin D, it’s estimated that over 50% of the US population is vitamin D deficient. During the summer, my family tries to lay out in the sun for at least 30 minutes, four to five times per week, to obtain sufficient vitamin D to stay healthy and strong. However, in the winter time, you’ll need a good vitamin D3 supplement. But take note that most vitamin D supplements are virtually worthless. Here’s why: The vitamin D in milk and in most vitamin supplements is vitamin D2 and is synthetic. Vitamin D2 is also called “ergocalciferol.” It is not the form of vitamin D that you need to prevent cancer and degenerative diseases. The form of vitamin D which you need is vitamin D3 (“cholecalciferol”) and, as I mentioned above, it is produced from the UVB rays in sunlight. That’s why I frequently refer to sunshine as the “most affordable cancer-fighting nutrient in the world.” Think about it, you can get a lifetime supply for FREE!
FDA Admits 100K Annual Death Count
Who is killing the most people inside our borders? Is it drunk drivers? Nope. Is it illegal drugs? Nope. Is it (gasp!) “TERRORISTS”? Nope. Well, what is it then? Below is a screen capture that I just made of a page on the FDA website. I made a screen capture just in case they decide to remove this information, which would not surprise me in the least. Notice that it acknowledges 100,000 DEATHS PER YEAR due to adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and over TWO MILLION serious ADRs per year. Also admitted by the FDA is that ADRs are the “4th leading cause of death ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents and automobile deaths.” WOW! Assuming that the figure of 100,000 per year is relatively constant and not rapidly increasing or declining, since September 11, 2001 there have been OVER ONE MILLION deaths from adverse drug reactions! Yet we have never-ending crusades against firearms (while accidental firearms deaths are down to around 600 per year) and spend multiple BILLIONS of dollars inconveniencing, irradiating, and sexually molesting people at airports (while there have been essentially zero deaths since 9/11 and only trumped-up, false flag “terrorism” events). All the while, the FDA and Big Pharma continue to bring more toxic, deadly drugs on the market. According to Ethan Huff, writer for NaturalNews.com, “If al-Qaeda operatives were caught dispensing toxic chemicals disguised as medicine to innocent civilians, they would be sent off to Guantanamo Bay without trial, and locked away indefinitely. But when the FDA does the very same thing on a much more massive scale, nobody bats an eye. And yet the number of people that the FDA has killed with its drugs is far more than the number killed during 9/11 or the Oklahoma City bombing.The organized crime ring that is the federal government today is the real terrorist threat that we all face on a daily basis. And until the American people collectively wake up to this reality, we will continue to watch our friends, our families, and our children, which are the casualties of this ongoing terrorist attack, lay waste at the hands of Big Pharma and the FDA.” Meanwhile, while Americans are dropping like flies from adverse drug reactions, the FDA and Big Pharma continue to conduct a revolving door operation in which they fairly regularly swap executives. And you gotta love the FDA’s motto: “Protecting and Promoting Your Health.” What a joke! Thanks to my friend, Bob Gregory, for alerting me to this information. I agree with Bob when he says, “If you don’t smell a rat, probably some drug you’re taking has affected your smeller.”
Cherries For Your Health
Did you know that 20% of Americans have arthritis? A natural remedy for joint pain like arthritis is tart cherries. Like all dark-skinned fruits, cherries are high in antioxidants and other phytochemicals that promote human health in numerous ways. While sweet cherries may be more fun to eat, the most potent inflammation-fighting cherries are the tart variety. “Anthocyanins” (the phytochemicals which give cherries their vibrant red color) have powerful anti-inflammatory properties since they shut down the enzymes that cause tissue inflammation and pain. [Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology, 9/10-2006]. In a recent study, University of Michigan researchers found that giving whole tart cherries to lab rats reduced two common markers of blood vessel inflammation by up to 50%. This not only helps reduce the pain associated with arthritis but also lowers the risk of type-2 diabetes and heart disease. Studies also suggest antioxidant-rich foods (like cherries) may help reduce levels of nitric oxide, a compound associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Cherries have a unique antioxidant profile that works similar to some types of pain medication. Cherries are also one of the only natural sources of melatonin, a potent antioxidant which helps regulate the immune system and prevents cancer. And if that’s not enough reasons to have a bowl of cherries, they are also well known to help reverse gout (a condition caused by too much uric acid circulating in the blood), reduce body fat, and lower cholesterol. According to these recent studies, perhaps the old saying, “life is like a bowl of cherries” should be changed to “a healthy life depends upon a bowl of cherries.” 😉
“Cut Poison Burn” – The Thomas Navarro Story
The “war on cancer” was officially declared by the Federal Government in 1971, and enthusiastically signed into law by President Richard Nixon. Over the past almost four decades, it has in reality become a quagmire, a “medical Vietnam,” an endless, calculated “no-win” war on cancer, since countless billions of dollars are being made each year by its perpetuation. Since 1971, over $2 TRILLION has been spent on conventional cancer research and treatments. One would think that after four decades of fervent research and TRILLIONS of dollars spent, we would have this dreadful disease under control, right? I mean, just think of the rapid explosion of ideas and innovations within other technology areas. Your cell phone is now more powerful than the largest supercomputers of that time, for example. But alas, we are no closer to a cure today than we were in 1971 at least, not in the realm of conventional medicine. According to Dr. John Bailer, who spent twenty years on the staff of the NCI and was editor of its journal, speaking at the Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in May 1985, “My overall assessment is that the national cancer program must be judged a qualified failure.” In a 2004 study, a group of oncologists evaluated 227,874 cancer cases that involved 22 malignancies and concluded that “The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia, and 2.1% in the USA.” Not only do conventional cancer treatments (like chemo, radiation, and surgery) NOT work, but the fact of the matter is that the Cancer Industry (led by their “mafia dons”) has waged another war ”“ a war against those who advocate the use of alternative cancer treatments. At the root of this new war is the almighty dollar. That’s right as free as many Americans might “think” they are, there are certain glaring aspects of American life for which individuals are NOT free to make their own choices, and cancer treatment is one of them. Disgusting greed has been allowed to rule the game here, and the primary beneficiaries of this 40-year long so-called “cancer war” are the Cancer Industry, Big Pharma, and the so-called “non-profit” organizations like the American Cancer Society. Rather than decreasing, cancer rates have increased during the last 40 years, and cancer is the #1 killer of Americans under age 85, even surpassing heart disease. In the sobering and eye-opening documentary, “Cut Poison Burn,” producers Louis Cimino and Wayne Chesler bring to light the sinister nature of the multi-billion dollar Cancer Industry, the insidious nature of the Medical Mafia, the suppression of natural cancer treatments, and the “forced medication” of individuals who wish to choose their own personalized, natural forms of treatment. At the core, the heartbreaking true story of Jim and Donna Navarro as they encounter road-blocks and a lack of freedom in choosing treatment options for their son Thomas, who (at 4 years old) was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a malignant brain tumor. The conventional treatment methods, which included toxic chemotherapy drugs and radiation, offered virtually no hope. Even if their son survived the treatment, side effects could include hearing loss, brain damage, cumulative reduction in IQ and other cancers, just to name a few. Rather than undergo conventional chemotherapy and radiation, the Navarros instead wanted to pursue an alternative route (Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski’s non-toxic antineoplaston treatment) which has been shown to be particularly effective (50% to 60%) at treating brain cancers, but the FDA blocked them from getting this “unapproved” treatment. You see, if a child is under a certain age, then the Medical Mafia REQUIRES that he/she undergo the prescribed treatment regimen (i.e. toxic chemo and radiation) even though these forms of treatment are virtually useless at treating medulloblastoma. To add insult to injury, the state threatened Donna and Jim that if they did not subject him to these barbaric poisons, they would remove Thomas from their custody. Like so many others, they realized that they were not free to seek whatever treatment they saw fit for their child. Yes indeed, the freedoms for which many of America’s forefathers sacrificed their lives seem to have gradually eroded to this sad state of affairs. In the film, Jim Navarro makes a statement that really highlights the sheer ludicrousness of the current model of cancer care. Although the doctor admitted that chemotherapy “would not work” for their son’s particular cancer, and the package insert stated that the drug has not been proven safe or effective for pediatric use, he still insisted that chemotherapy had to be used, and if the Navarro’s refused to submit their son to this “standard care,” they could go to jail and their son could be legally taken from them. This is a dementedly inhuman game, where a child’s quality of life and entire future is tossed aside in order to maintain a highly profitable status quo in the Cancer Industry. After an 18 month legal battle with the FDA (aka the “Federal Death Administration”) and tens of thousands of dollars in legal expenses, the Navarros were finally “allowed” to take their son to Dr. Burzynski. However, by then he had already had his second brain surgery, and had already been forced to undergo chemotherapy, and had already suffered recurring tumors which were induced by the toxicity of the chemotherapy. Thomas died at the tender age of six. His death certificate states the cause of death as: “Respiratory failure and pneumonia due to chronic toxicity of chemotherapy.” In the end, it was the chemo that killed Thomas NOT his brain cancer … Below is Thomas’ death certificate: As I type this story, I have a tear in my eye. How can we allow these murderers to get away with this? How can the death certificate state (unequivocally) that Thomas died from “chronic toxicity of chemotherapy,” but the doctors who administered the chemotherapy are NOT IN JAIL? I am speechless. The Navarro’s story is a heartbreaking but important one, so I hope you will take the time to watch the film in its entirety, to understand what could happen to you, should you ever be placed in a similar circumstance. If you want to help the Navarro’s pay off Thomas’ medical bills, I urge you to purchase a copy of the documentary at CutPoisonBurn.com. A percentage of the proceeds from the film will go to cancer organizations that donate 100% of their proceeds to families fighting cancer, unlike the American Cancer Society. Jim and Donna Navarro are also currently working on creating a Texas-based organization called Cancer Busters. I had the privilege of interviewing Jim and Donna last week via Skype Video. Below is the interview. This is yet another story which reveals the TRUE COLORS of the so-called “war on cancer.” Instead of supporting a promising alternative treatment for cancer, the US government spent over $8 million American taxpayer dollars to persecute (and prosecute) Dr. Burzynski over a 13 year period, in an effort to PREVENT this successful treatment from being used!! Today, there are dozens of effective, natural cancer treatments that are vehemently suppressed and opposed, while propaganda-spewing, mindless, bobble-heads talk about “working together to find a cure for cancer.” My final question: Do they or do they NOT want a cure for cancer?
Avocados are an excellent source of fats. Their combination of oleic acid (which protects against breast cancer), potassium, and folate makes them extremely “heart healthy.” They also contain substances called tocopherols and carotenoids which combine to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. We love to add avocados to our “free range chicken” tortilla soup (just ate that last night), and Charlene also makes a tasty “raw carob pie” made with avocados, raw carob, coconut, dates, and honey. It tastes just like chocolate pie, but it’s all raw and good for you! She also makes fantastic wraps with homemade mayo (mixed with fresh minced garlic and fresh cut basil from our garden), raw cheddar cheese, avocado, lettuce, tomato, and alfalfa sprouts. Avocados are also an excellent skin moisturizer. With their healthy fats and phytonutrients, they offer remarkable benefits to human skin (both when eaten and when used topically). Interestingly, due to the seed, avocados are actually considered a “fruit” and not a “vegetable.”
Why Does Freedom Matter?
Why does freedom matter? Why does it matter if the TSA is allowed to sexually molest our wives and children? (LINK) Why does it matter if police are allowed to beat to death a mentally-challenged handcuffed homeless man? (LINK) Why does it matter if a mother is arrested for taking a picture of a tourist attraction? (LINK) Why does it matter that a Florida wife was sentenced to 20 years in jail for firing warning shots to prevent her abusive husband from beating her? (LINK) Why does it matter? What does this have to do with our health? Let me tell you how these stories are all interrelated. Because if we sit back and allow the government to enslave (and dehumanize) us in these areas, then we will gladly allow them to violate the Constitution and take our health freedom. Just look at a few recent examples the FDA raid on Rawesome Foods for selling raw milk (LINK) the Detroit SWAT team kidnapping (and raping) of Maryanne Godboldo’s daughter for refusing to keep using psychiatric drugs (LINK) the “gunpoint” forced chemotherapy of Jacob Stieler (a child) who showed no signs of cancer (LINK) and the list goes on and on and on You see, a tyrannical government crushes ALL forms of freedom, including HEALTH freedom! I was watching an interview where the reporter asked the people on the street if freedom was important to them. One remark that really blew me away was when a seemingly intelligent 30-something man answered, “Yes, freedom is important but it has its place.” In other words: “Yes, we should all be herded like sheep, but within the limits of common sense.” Sadly, this man’s position on freedom is indicative of our country as a whole. We have been so brainwashed into believing that it’s somehow “patriotic” to give up our freedom and liberty in exchange for more “protection” from the terrorists, boogeyman, and the Easter Bunny. Nothing could be further from the truth. In the words of Benjamin Franklin, “He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.” We MUST stand-up for liberty in ALL areas of life, or we will lose our health freedom. Codex Alimentarius could become the “law of the land” if we are silent. Codex Alimentarius (Latin for “food code”) is the proposed set of international guidelines for nutritional supplements, food handling, production, and trade which is now gradually being ratified in countries around the world. Codex is made up of thousands of standards and guidelines. One of them, the Vitamin and Mineral Guideline (VMG), is designed to permit only ultra-low doses of vitamins and minerals, essentially making supplements illegal. Vitamin C, for example, at any dosage higher than two hundred milligrams per day will be illegal. The dose of coenzyme Q10 which has been shown to resolve breast cancer in some patients (400 mg per day) will be illegal because coenzyme Q10 will be totally illegal at any dose following the European Supplements Directive model. Only 28 nutrients will be allowed, but the maximum upper limits have been set so low that they have little or no clinical impact in keeping us healthy and none at all in returning us to a state of health if we are ill. And those which are available will be exorbitantly priced. Codex also stipulates which conditions may be treated using herbs. Only minor, self-limited conditions may be treated by herbal means. Treating any other conditions with herbal remedies will constitute a crime. Codex sets permissible upper limits for pesticide residues, toxic chemicals in the environment, hormones in food and other environmental contaminants which are many times higher than levels advocated by chemical and pesticide industry lobbying groups. Current toxic levels are already responsible for most of the cancers, heart disease, autism, chronic degenerative conditions, and organ failures which are killing people at increasing rates around the globe. Making permissible toxic levels higher will accelerate this destructive world-wide trend. And here is the kicker ”“ Codex is based in the Napoleonic Code, not Common Law. That means that under Codex, anything not explicitly permitted is forbidden. Under Common Law, we hold that anything not explicitly forbidden is permitted. The difference is the difference between health freedom and health tyranny. We are witnessing the end of America as a nation-state right now, and with these changes, none of our domestic laws or constitutional rights are secure. We are facing a frightening future, not to mention the fact that children born after 1990 have no clue about their food, water, vaccinations, or anything else. Our food supply is full of irradiated food, pasteurized milk and juice, viruses sprayed on our meat, chemicals sprayed on fruit and vegetables, and now we’re being forced without our consent to eat genetically modified foods. Codex is nothing more than Big Pharma’s worldwide “control” agenda. It is an enormous assault on humanity and health freedom. Sadly, like many other instances of government abuse and tyranny mentioned at the beginning of this article, much of the “dumbed down” populace thinks that it’s a “good thing” that the government “cares enough to protect us.” You know the old saying, “A nation of sheep results in a government of wolves.” We must continue to promote freedom, liberty, and the restoration of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In the words of Dr. Benjamin Rush (signer of the Declaration of Independence): “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.” I leave you with this well-known quote: “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
“Energy Medicine” Cures M.D. of Terminal Disease
Back in 2000, cancer recovery specialist Dr. Ben Johnson was diagnosed with a terminal disease. “I should already be dead,” says Dr. Ben Johnson, the co-founder of the Immune Recovery Cancer Clinic. Dr. Johnson had been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease, an incurable motor neuron disease that attacks the nerves and muscles. He considered it a death sentence — far worse than cancer or AIDS — because 80% of people who suffer from the disease die within 5 years, and no one ever survives for 10 years. In 2003, Dr. Johnson was already entering his third year, and he was suffering from severe fatigue, constant muscle fasciculations (twitching of the muscles), and his voice was so weak he could barely speak. As a doctor, he was certain that death was imminent. Then, later that year, he heard about a seminar for a new healing technology called The Healing Codes that was being conducted by Dr. Alex Loyd.
Here’s the rest of Dr. Ben Johnson’s amazing story in his own words:
“I was impressed with the testimonials (about The Healing Codes); but they weren’t nearly as important to me as the scientific explanation of how, what appeared to be miracles, could take place. I began to use The Healing Codes. After only 3 months of practicing The Healing Codes, I returned to the surgeon who first diagnosed me. He ran the test for Lou Gehrig’s (EMG) and no trace of Lou Gehrig’s Disease could be found.” Thanks to The Healing Codes, Dr. Ben has been symptom free since 2004.
As incredible as Dr. Ben’s story is, he is not alone… Thousands of people from all over the world have reported being healed from a host of ailments, disorders and diseases… even cancer. This may sound hard to believe, but you’ll see for yourself how countless people have used The Healing Codes to heal everything from cancer to diabetes, arthritis, emphysema, depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, fibroid tumors to Lou Gehrig’s Disease and more.
OK, enough for this time. But stay tuned. My next monthly newsletter will have more great info.
And please remember that CANCER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DEATH SENTENCE!
Thanks and God bless.
