The Many Benefits of Juice Fasting
Healing Revolution Summit 2014During July, I was so happy to have my entire family accompany me to Dr. King's Healing Revolution Summit in Asheville, NC. We had a blast with the Bells, Buttars, Haleys, Barattieros, Glenns, and a whole bunch of other folks. Here is a photo collage to recap the wonderful time. Watch it HERE.
Tara Mann’s StoryOne of the incredible people that I met while in Asheville was Tara Mann. Below is her story. In December of 2011 I was at the height of my 10-year career as a pharmaceutical representative. I watched a documentary one evening called Dying to Have Known. I'm not really sure what led me to that documentary but it changed the course of my life. Dying to Have Known is a documentary about the Gerson Therapy and the story of Dr. Max Gerson. It details countless stories about cancer fighters that overcame cancer with a therapy that consists of a strict diet, juicing and detoxification. The success rate was unbelievable!! As a pharmaceutical representative who worked with doctors every day, I couldn't believe that this was not mainstream knowledge. I remember sitting up on the edge of my seat that night with my jaw on the floor. I started researching immediately and was overwhelmed with the countless natural and VIABLE therapies for defeating cancer! The more I researched, the more I realized what facing a cancer diagnosis must be like. Scary of course, and because of the fear that naturally accompanies the "c" word, those diagnosed have little or no time to research and determine other options besides chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. The saddest part to me is those that want so badly to deny these treatments but don't know which direction is best for them. Some don't have the resources to acquire these other methods because they are not so readily covered by insurance, as are the other, not so gentle options. These fighters' stories fueled my passion to reach out and help them! I created a small support group on Facebook to connect a couple of fighters that I had started to communicate with. That support group was called Cancer Crackdown. I continued working as a drug rep and spent every extra minute in the support group and researching. I didn't tell a lot of people about what I was doing because I just wasn't sure what they would think, I felt like an alien on a new planet with all of this knowledge about amazing cures for cancer without the traditional treatments. I met a wonderful man during this time and found myself telling him all about my passion for helping those fighting cancer to use all available strategies. He inspired me to see Cancer Crackdown in a much bigger vision and in September of 2012 I resigned my position as a pharmaceutical representative to dedicate my effort to Cancer Crackdown full time. I married that wonderful man and together we created what is now a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization!! We help fighters navigate their battle to include lifestyles and therapies that promote their immune system while destroying the cancer in their body. Each battle is specific to the individual and what works for one may not work for another. We are dedicated to being the best resource as a navigator and healing partner for those that are in the battle and wish to fight from every angle. We Fight With You, We Fight For You!!! We are excited about the future of Cancer Crackdown and are encouraged by each fighter that we are able to assist in his or her journey to overcome cancer and remain cancer free!!! We are truly fighting with them, as we believe that everyone should fight to prevent cancer if not already afflicted. Early in my research I purchased the e-book Cancer: Step Outside The Box. It was just the tool that I needed to bring all of the research I had been doing together. I was so inspired by Ty and his story and to this day am so grateful for his mission to share this truth.
5 Wild Edibles to Keep You Alive
By Elizabeth Renter, NaturalSocietyIf you find yourself in the wild without foodâ€”whether it's the zombie apocalypse or a camping trip gone badâ€”wild plants can represent a great unknown, like an abundant buffet with poisonous dishes slipped in. It may be all green, but it's far from all edible, and you don't want to sample the wildlife all willy-nilly. Instead, having knowledge of a few wild edibles could come in handy, keeping you alive instead of speeding you to your death. Here are 5 wild edibles you may find and eat on your outdoor journeys: 1. Burdock A popular food in Japan, burdock hasn't really caught onto the mainstream here in the Western Hemisphere. It is medium-to-large sized with large leaves and flower-heads that look like purple thistles. The leaves are bitter, but edible. Both the root and stalks can be peeled and eaten raw or boiled. Burdock is a good source of carbohydrates, plant sterols, tannins, and fatty oils. 2. Cattail A long grass-looking plant with cigar-shaped flower spikes that grows near the edge of freshwater sources, his is one of the more recognizable edibles. ArtofManliness reports these were a staple in the diets of Native American tribes. Most of the plant is edible, including the rootstock found underground. The leaves can be boiled like spinach and the stem can be boiled or eaten raw. Early in the season, the flower spike can be eaten like corn on the cob and is said to actually be similar to corn. 3. Dandelion One of the most popular edibles, dandelion is an easy one to spot and often found in abundance. The leaves are packed with vitamin A and vitamin C, as well as beta carotene. It also acts like a diuretic. All parts of the dandelion are edible and can be eaten raw or boiled, though young leaves taste best. Check out dandelion benefits here. 4. Chickweed This one is also typically found in abundance. It is a low-growing inconspicuous plant, which only reaches 3 to 8 inches off the ground. It has small white flowers with 5 petals that have clefts so deep they appear to be 10-leaved. It's these flowers that can help one differentiate the plant from other similar species. This plant is most abundant between May and July. Leaves can be eaten raw or boiled. 5. Clovers Clovers are easy to spot and can be found overtaking lawns and fields. They can be difficult to digest raw, so boiling is the best option. They are also high in protein, making them a perfect survival food. Ideally, you'll never need to result to foraging as a main source of food. However, having the information and even incorporating some wild foraging into your diet can be a useful experience. Just make sure to seek out plants that have not been treated with chemical pesticides and herbicides.
Man in Solitary Confinement for 28 Years!!A prisoner who has spent 28 straight years in solitary confinement may be released into the general prison population, according to the Louisiana warden who has allegedly kept him confined in a 6 by 9 foot cell for 23 hours a day. Burl Cain, the warden of the Louisiana State Penitentiary, told reporters for Northwestern University's Medill Justice Project that he would be ready to transfer the prisoner, Kenny "Zulu" Whitmore, in a "matter of months," once he has determined that Whitmore no longer poses a threat to other prisoners. "We'd rather him out, I need his cell," Cain said in an interview with Medill Justice Project, an investigative journalism project that exposes wrongful convictions. "I've got some young people, predators, that need to be in that cell. When I can conclude he's not gonna cause me the blues, then he can come out of the cell." A total of 35 years of solitary confinement, including 28 consecutive years, has taken a toll on Whitmore's physical and mental health, the prisoner told reporters. His vision has deteriorated and he has developed a case of hypertension. He has filed suit against the warden and other prison officials, claiming his spell in solitaryâ€”the longest known case in U.S. historyâ€”constituted cruel and unusual punishment and violated his free speech rights. Whitmore was sentenced to life in prison in 1977 for second-degree murder. Since then, the warden maintains that Whitmore, as a supporter of the Black Panther Party, has espoused beliefs that could provoke other inmates to commit violent attacks. "The Black Panther Party advocates violence and racism," Cain said. "I'm not going to let anybody walk around advocating violence and racism." Whitmore's lawyer, Michelle Rutherford, said in a statement that Cain's comments about the Black Panther Party proved the prisoner's constitutional rights had been breached. "Warden Cain's statement confirms the allegations Mr. Whitmore makes in his civil rights suit: he has been held in a 9â€² by 6â€² cell for over 35 years because of his political beliefs, not because of any demonstrated violent or disruptive behavior." Did you get that? Let me repeat it. Kenny "Zulu" Whitmore has been held in a 9â€² by 6â€² cell for over 35 years because of his political beliefs, not because of any demonstrated violent or disruptive behavior. WOW! Why does this matter? I mean, who really cares if a man has been locked up in solitary confinement for THIRTY FIVE YEARS because of his political beliefs? YOU should! Because in the USA ... the "land of the free and home of the brave" ... this type of TORTURE should not be tolerated. After threats and torture if he did not plead guilty, an unfair trial and the use of false information, in 1977, Whitmore was sentenced to life+ 99 years for the 1973 murder of the former mayor of a small town in Louisiana. There is no evidence linking him to the crime. Because he is a member of the Black Panther Party, he has been in solitary confinement for over three decades. "But this doesn't really affect me... I'm not a Black Panther." What if we replaced "Black Panther" with "Republican" or "Democrat" or "Libertarian" or "Christian" ... then would you care?
Guilty Until Proven InnocentBelow is a letter written by our dear friend, Lynn Sasser, from Nashville. She wrote the letter after an encounter with the TSA in Corpus Christi, TX. I'm so proud of her for standing up to tyranny. More people need to follow Lynn's example...
======Dear Sirs, I am writing this letter to give you some information and background before I make my complaint: I presently live just outside of Nashville, TN, but I was raised in South Texas and own a home and business there. I travel through Corpus Christi, Texas every three to four weeks; in other words I am no stranger to the airport in Corpus. I know people there by name and face. While returning to Nashville, traveling with my son and family, we arrived early for check in and to go through security. While waiting for my carry-on bag, I noticed everyone looking at the monitor, and holding my bag while they called for someone to come from her office. A man approached me and started interrogating me asking how long had I been in this area, what am I doing in Texas ,etc. I ask what is this all about? What is the big deal about my bag? Why all the security guards in the airport interested in my bag? He would not answer me other than ask a stupid question “Are you carrying a gun?” "Well," I said, "I just went through your security cameras and you know I don't have agun on my body, you know it is a federal law against carrying a gun in an airport! So, I ask again, what is everyone looking at?" When I turned around from talking to him I saw them scanning all my personal cards and dumping the contents of my bag in a basket, and going through everything, and may I add, not in front of me, but at the end of the security belt. I pointed at my bag and said to this man that was asking questions, "What are they doing with my cards and personal things?" I was shocked because I knew I had nothing illegal, unlawful or criminal in that bag. Needless to say, I was upset and spoke up for my rights as an American citizen. I told them that I had the right for them to bring my belongings “in front” of me before they dumped and scanned them. I was ignored, and ask again if I had a gun in my belongings or on my person? My answer was a very strong “NO" and I asked again,”What did they find?" Then they ask if I had a gun permit? I replied "Yes, I have a permit to carry a gun, you just scanned my card, didn't you? I ask what have you found and why am I being treated like a criminal and guilty until proven innocent? I thought that an American was innocent until proven guilty." Not in the airport, that is for sure! Then they sent 2 police officers to “calm me down” One told me if I said another word he would arrest me! Of all things, for what, asking a question? He said for “creating a scene” I told him that they had “created a scene” I had done nothing to be arrested for and he knew it. He was holding my driver's license, my boarding pass, and the star badge the police dept. in Franklin, TN gives when you complete a gun permit class. It is on a triple thick leather so you can attach it to your belt or purse when carrying a gun. Mine was in the bottom of my carry-on bag. I asked what he had found, and he held the star up and said “This star COULD be used as a Flying Ninja Star Weapon!" Amazing ... he was just covering for their stupidity and mistake! I stepped eye to eye with him and asked if he could demonstrate that for me. His reply was “One more word and I will arrest you.” I reached up and grabbed my license, boarding pass and "NINJA STAR" and said, "Give me that, you have nothing on me and you know it….get out of my face…all of you." They brought my belongings to me in a “basket” and said they could re-pack them for me if I wanted, and I told to them to get out of my face Here Is My Complaint: There was nothing found in my bag. I don't even have a speeding ticket. I am not a felon, a criminal, or anything on my record, just a person with a “gun permit”…. no gun! After all the harassment I didn't even get “sorry, we made a mistake, we were wrong" ... nothing! I left upset, sick, and emotionally devastated at the lack of professional courtesy at Corpus Christi Airport, including the TSA and all involved. I respect the law, but civility should prevail on the part of security TSA officers and all law concerning American citizens. Below is a photo that we took with Lynn and her husband Bill and her son Tres and family while we were in Nashville this past weekend. Lynn is second from the right.
Detroit Forces Farmer to Destroy 248 Gallons of Milk & 1200 Free-Range Eggs
by Christina Sarich, Natural SocietyWhile Americans who can't pay their bills in the bankrupt city of Detroit are having their water turned off, the state of Michigan decided to direct its minimal resources to crack-down on a few small food co-ops in the city of Standish for having the audacity to provide organic milk, free-range eggs, butter, cream, and other food to people who bought shares in their companies. The Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) forced Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, the owners of Hill High Dairy, and Jenny Samuelson, owner of My Family Co-op, to dump 248 perfectly good gallons of organic milk, break 100-dozen protein-filled, life sustaining free-range eggs, and an undisclosed amount of butter, fresh cream, and organic cheese. Hill High Dairy's Facebook page stated that agents from the MDA stood over them to be certain they destroyed this foodstuff. Each individual egg had to be broken and the 248 gallons of milk had to be dumped in a sprayer that was then delivered to a nearby field _ a complete waste. Since the original posting of this article on another site, the Hill High Dairy page is now inaccessible. You can still see pictures of the forced destruction, here, however. The owners of the dairy also state that they were threatened with arrest for ‘selling food without a license,' even though the farm is a co-op and people buy shares with the right to purchase directly from the farm. The MDA said that the co-op contracts were invalid, arguing that the food was not ‘shared,' but ‘sold.' It sounds more like the MDA stole food from people who had rightly paid for it, and have every legal reason to consume it. One member angrily expressed: "This is such a shame! I paid for these products and this is what happened!!!! They are all criminals!!! Government stealing all our food! I paid just so that Jenny and the farmers didn't have to carry the burden all on their own!!!! A crying shame. Shame on Michigan's Department of Agriculture! Criminals everyone on u!!!!" The MDA actually called these farms ‘dangerous' even though none of the animals are drugged, tortured, or even caged, as much of the factory-farmed animals are kept. Real farming is now treated like a crime, and criminal Big Ag practices are upheld like the law. We live in a backwards world, folks. Big Corporations clearly don't want people to have a right to eat organic, healthful food.
Interview with Dr. BurzynskiDuring July, I had the honor of interviewing Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, whom I have admired and respected for a long time. The Quest for the Cures Part 2, which will air in October.
Women Given Radiation for Breast Cancer 8X More Likely to Develop Lung Cancer
By Christina Sarich, InfowarsBig Pharma has been telling women that "it is better to get the whole breast radiated" when checking for breast cancer, but a new study coming from Dr. Trine Grantzau at the 33rd conference of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO33) in Vienna presented information to the contrary. Big surprise _ aside from increasing heart cancer risks, women given radiation treatment (or even mammography screenings) for breast cancer are 8 times more likely to develop lung cancer within 5 years of ‘treatment'. Grantzau told her peers at the conference: "Our findings suggest that any reduction in the dose of radiation to the lung would result in a reduction in the risk of radiation-induced subsequent lung cancers. With the advances in breast cancer treatment and the introduction of breast cancer screening, a growing number of women are becoming long-term survivors, and so we need to have an increased awareness of treatment-induced second cancers and take steps to reduce those risks by using radiotherapy techniques that spare normal tissue as much as possible." The doctor continues: "We found that for each Gray [radiation session] delivered to the lung as part of radiotherapy for a breast tumor, the relative risk of developing a subsequent primary lung cancer increased. This increased risk was similar to the reported increased risk of heart disease after radiotherapy for breast cancer." Previous studies have even shown that radiation treatment for breast cancer actually makes breast cancer worse! Published in the well-respected Cancer journal, a study conducted at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (UJCCC) describes how radiation treatments actually promote malignancy in cancer cells instead of eradication. How do doctors become so entrenched in the skalawagery of their industry that they don't throw out ‘radiatiotherpy techniques' completely? One thing that is completely infuriating in the time of ‘modern medicine' is the ‘present the problem, promote the solution' brainwashing that we all have been subjected to. When a modality meant to ‘treat' a disease causes the disease, there is no excuse for its continued use to be allowed. Why do we stand for this? So instead of bravely concluding that other modalities of screening and treatment should be considered, after stating in her own presentation that radiotherapy causes both increases in lung cancer and heart disease, we should just slow down a little on its use. Interesting. While the study is valuable in presenting the evidence that radiation is detrimental to human tissue _ which numerous studies have already proven, it fails to make a higher-level, intelligent inference from the findings. Radiation kills cancer patients, not cancer. If you want to learn more about why radiation is bad for you, check out this video which talks about how radiation causes healthy cells to become rancid, eventually killing you.
Cancer Success Story – Alissia SadÃ©We live in the Middle East and 2 years ago, my husband was told by a prominent Urologist and surgeon that he had stage T2A bladder cancer which was aggressive and that to survive, he would need to have Chemo, radiation and radical surgery to not only remove his bladder and prostate, but to remove his intestines and have a neo bladder built from them so that he can pass urine. He was just 52 at the time. We had a second opinion in our own Country, which again gave us the same prognosis within the same month. What the Dr’s forgot to tell us was if he took this operation, the chances of him living longer than 4 years were very slim and also they refrained from telling us he would be incontinent for up to a year and also impotent at age 52. Fear is a terrible thing and fear is ripe when we hear the word Cancer. The saying, "Frightened to death" is really what happens to the body once you believe there is only one way to treat this terrible disease. I hope that sharing our story might give the reader at least some hope that there is another way. Our belief system does not have to be locked we can open up our minds to think for ourselves, inform ourselves and learn not to just accept our "fate." We spoke again to the Urologist and told him we needed more time to research alternative treatments and modalities, and we would not take the Chemo just yet, we were already looking into different therapies, both of us are concerned with the quality of his life after surgery and both of us needed time to digest all of this dreadful news, the Oncologist and the Surgeon try to impress on us that we need to think very carefully about the surgery, the Surgeon had already got a date in his diary to proceed with removing his bladder, within the following 6 weeks...we felt like we were being railroaded into the surgery far too fast and we needed to slow it all down a little so we could have time to digest everything. Something was screaming at me to take some time before making this radical decision. I began first researching this natural cancer cure in the form of Essiac, given its name by Rene Caisse ("Caisse" spelt backwards); this herbal cure consists of four main herbs that grow in the wilderness of Ontario, Canada. The original formula is believed to have its roots from the native Canadian Ojibwa Indians. The four main herbs that make up Essiac are Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root. If you want to know more about Rene Caisse's Immune System Theory in her own words. You can Google "Rene Caisse story'' My husband started on this medicine within a week of him being diagnosed, Then we made an appointment with a naturopathic Dr and we asked for her help in co Doctoring my husband each step of the way as we try the alternative approach. Dr did all of his blood tests to find out what he was lacking to make his immune system be so depleted and we found out he was almost completely depleted of vitamin D even though he lived in a hot and sunny climate. We put together a plan of action to continue to work with the conventional tests MRI and scans and also many vitamins and supplements and complete diet and lifestyle change. The conventional Dr's gave my husband 18 months to 2 years to live if we did not do the surgery and the chemo. We did none of them, only natural healing with vitamins diet and lifestyle change and cannabis oil. I first saw the movie " Run from the cure" in November 2011 but it took me until April of 2012 to find the oil made with a natural food grade Alcohol. It has been hard work for me as a career and wife and I never stopped my research for 1 day in the last 24 months but today I can say 2 years after my husband's first diagnosis he is cancer free and still has his bladder intact. He has been cancer free now for the last four cystoscopies, so 1 year Cancer free in August 2014 he has no metastasis to other organs. He had an MRI in July ....We have every one of his medical records, every laser surgery to remove tumors has been recorded on Cd's and we even have the biopsy slides with pieces of the tumors that were graded as being aggressive and muscle invasive. We still have to have regular checkups every three months but to think 22 months ago he was told he has 18 months to live if he did not remove his bladder, prostate and some lymph nodes, I am so happy to also say as side effect of all we did, his cholesterol went back to normal as did his blood pressure, he looks ten to 15 years younger and feels so much better than he ever did and it is shocking that we are led to believe that there is no cure for Cancer, our story is living proof there is another way and I am now consumed with only getting the word out that Cancer does not need to mean death. We just lost 2 years of our lives to cancer and yet it has turned out to be the most important time of our life too, I found what I was put on the earth to do and that is to be part of something, as the world wakes up to there being another way and it is just through natural healing and giving our body just what it needs to repair itself!! Taking Control of your own body means you too can heal yourself, first and foremost with proper diet and nutrition and vitamin therapy, a complete lifestyle change and Natural God given plant extracts. I wrote a book about all we did and it is now available on amazon. It is called "Taking Control." My husband completely changed the way he eats, he has no dairy or sugar, no white flour or white potatoes, he has mainly a plant based diet with a little fish or chicken and no processed food, pastries meats cheeses etc, he had Essiac, he had mega doses of vitamin C and D3, vitamin B17, K2, detox powder’s initially, then he had DHEA to build his immune system back so that his body could heal itself, then a year after doing all of this, we found the oil and added that to all we had done, he did 90 days on the oil and then maintenance dose of rice grain size two or 3 times weekly. It has been hard for 18 months but it is a success story which we will continue to tell the world about.
The Many Benefits of Juice FastingJuice fasting is an excellent way to detoxify your system. About three or four times a year, for a period of 10-14 days, I eliminate food and ingest only fresh fruit juice, vegetable juice, and water. Two weeks may seem like a long time to go without food, but it's really not. During the first couple of days of a juice fast, your body utilizes the food remaining in your digestive tract from previous meals. Then, for the next couple of days, your body uses stored food reserves from your liver. I like to dilute the juice about 50/50 with water. If you don't like the taste of diluted juice, then alternate glasses of pure juice with glasses of water. I generally sip on juice all day long. A good rule of thumb is: "When you are hungry, drink juice. When you are thirsty, drink juice." I like to juice carrots, beets, cucumbers, apples, and celery. I also juice spinach and green leafy vegetables. Freshly made raw apple, grape, pineapple, and melon juices are also delicious. The juice tastes best if you drink it right after preparing it. Immediately. Fresh juice contains a large amount of raw food enzymes and vitamins, many of which are easily lost as the juice sits. So don't let it sit! Drink it fast…and drink as much as you want. During a juice fast, I also use a product called Aloe Ease, a product developed by Dr. Loren Ritter, who proudly calls himself the "Doody Doctor." This product really helps to clean out the colon, assisting your body in getting rid of the sludge that has been rotting inside of you for months or years. Believe it or not, it's not uncommon to have more than twenty pounds of undigested food, slime, and putrefied fecal matter trapped in your intestinal tract. Yikes! Can you imagine the amount of toxins all this "dead yuck" is producing just for you? Did you know that colon cancer kills more Americans than breast cancer and prostate cancer? A juice fast gives your body an opportunity to get rid of the toxic sludge which causes cancer. During a juice fast, despite the fact that you don't consume any solid food, you will likely have more bowel movements than before you began the fast, since your body begins to "clean house" a bit. After a typical juice fast, I feel more vibrant, more alert, and much more energetic than before. In my opinion, there are few things that can "jump start" your body like a good juice fast. Just remember the old saying, "One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive; the other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive." You may have heard the slogan, "Laughter is the best medicine." I wholeheartedly agree. So, here's a little humor to make you smile. 😉
And please remember that CANCER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DEATH SENTENCE!
Thanks and God bless.
