(NaturalNews) Woven into the fabric of the human body is an intricate system of proteins known as cannabinoid receptors that are specifically designed to process cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary active components of marijuana. And it turns out, based on the findings of several major scientific studies, that human breast milk naturally contains many of the same cannabinoids found in marijuana, which are actually extremely vital for proper human development.

Cell membranes in the body are naturally equipped with these cannabinoid receptors which, when activated by cannabinoids and various other nutritive substances, protect cells against viruses, harmful bacteria, cancer, and other malignancies. And human breast milk is an abundant source of endocannabinoids, a specific type of neuromodulatory lipid that basically teaches a newborn child how to eat by stimulating the suckling process.

If it were not for these cannabinoids in breast milk, newborn children would not know how to eat, nor would they necessarily have the desire to eat, which could result in severe malnourishment and even death. Believe it or not, the process is similar to how adult individuals who smoke pot get the “munchies,” as newborn children who are breastfed naturally receive doses of cannabinoids that trigger hunger and promote growth and development.

Doctors and Farmers Find That Eliminating GMOs Prevents Disease


‘In recent years, more and more doctors have started warning their patients to avoid genetically modified foods and the results are paying off. Jeffrey Smith now tells us that thousands of doctors are reporting the elimination of disease simply when patients cut genetically modified foods out of their diets. They are finding the elimination of immune disorders, arthritis, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, skin problems, general pain, migraines, and restless leg syndrome, among other problems. According to one doctor, the results happen pretty quickly too.

“In terms of allergies,” Dr. Lindner tells us, “it might take two to five days. In terms of depression, it starts to lift almost instantaneously. When I change people from a GMO diet to a GMO-free diet, I see results instantaneously in people who have foggy thinking and people who have gut symptoms like bloating, gas, irritation.”

Dr. Lindner is getting her patients off the most common genetically modified foods including soy, corn, canola oil, and sugar and recommending that they buy organic to avoid even more of them. Full results, she tells us, normally take four to six weeks.’

Health Basics; how the media lies about supplements


Thursday, June 21, 2012 by: S. D. Wells

(NaturalNews) How does the Media lie? How do the major networks mislead you into buying things you normally wouldn’t buy, or NOT buying things you would regularly buy? How does the media convince you so well, to change your mind and spend money supporting the wrong causes, the wrong “cures,” and worst of all, the wrong food and medicine?

Let it be told that the media in the United States has been suppressing natural cures, vitamins, herbs, and supplements for over 75 years, knowing there’s hardly any money to be made from healthy people, especially compared to diseased ones. Most people know that television and radio talk shows are full of crap when it comes to nutritional advice, or do they? The media monopolies are quickly becoming experts at deception, and finding helpful information via the networks, CNN, and talk shows is impossible; it’s just a labyrinth of misinformation and “close-by-choice” sales tactics, where the only options presented are all bad ones, and you’re supposed to still make a decision where and HOW to spend your hard earned dollars.

Italian court rules MMR vaccine did trigger autism


By Staff Writer
NYR Natural News

Natural Health News — An Italian court has ruled there is a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. In what may be a ground-breaking decision, the Italian Court of Rimini has ruled that causation between an MMR vaccine and the resulting autism in a young child “has been established.” The unnamed child received the vaccine in March of 2004 and on returning home immediately developed adverse symptoms. During the next year the child regressed, receiving the autism diagnosis one year later and is now 100% disabled by the disease. The Italian court ruled that the child “has been damaged by irreversible complications due to vaccination (prophylaxis trivalent MMR)” and ordered the Ministry of Health to compensate the child with a 15 year annuity and to reimburse the parents of their court cost.

Save our children from vaccines and conventional school systems


Thursday, May 10, 2012 by: Jonathan Landsman

(NaturalNews) From day one – our children are being exposed to life-threatening chemicals and destructive ideas. In the United States, parents are being told to give their children (26) brain-damaging vaccines – within the first 18 months of life. And, to make matters worse, television and the (conventional) school system are killing the creativity of our children.
 
A thousand times worse than inorganic mercury -in vaccines

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, inorganic mercury is the second most toxic metal known to man – NO debate. But, vaccinated children are being exposed to a far more deadly form of mercury called Thiomersal. (or Ethylmercury) Many health experts agree that combining inorganic mercury with an organic compound (like Ethyl) can trigger food allergies, promote parasitic infestation, attention deficit disorders plus much more.

Before you vaccinate your child – educate yourself in order to make an informed decision. I urge you to do your own research and find out what many health professionals have discovered: (it’s shocking – to say the least)

Radiation poisoning? Homeopathic and other natural remedies provide protection and treatment


Tuesday, January 17, 2012 by: JB Bardot

(NaturalNews) Radioactive waste from Fukushima is approaching the west coast of North America at a frightening rate. Hundreds of seals off the coast of Alaska are dead and dying from symptoms that look ominously like radiation disease; and most people wonder what and who is next. Alternative medicine offers a wide variety of treatments to protect and treat radiation sickness. Certain homeopathic medicines and other natural substances may provide relief from radiation disease symptoms or boost the body’s natural vital force to protect itself from the severity of radiation exposure.

Symptoms of Radiation Sickness

Early signs of radiation illness include headache, nausea, vomiting and fever. Additional symptoms may appear later, including weakness, dizziness, mental confusion, hair loss, skin lesions, bloody vomit and stools, low blood pressure, wounds that are slow to heal, bone marrow deterioration, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular shut down, and cancerous tumors. Many of these symptoms also appear in animals, as evidenced by the seals in Alaska.

Protection

Homeopathic Fucus vesiculosus is a tincture made from a form of sea kelp that can be used to protect the thyroid from radioactive contamination. Like potassium iodide, it acts to block the thyroid receptors, preventing absorption of radiation; however, the dose is easier to control. It is milder and better tolerated by people with thyroid disease and other sensitivities.

Topical Treatments

Raw, organic honey possesses antibacterial properties and can reduce the severity of skin burns and lesions as well as lesson inflammation and ulcerations of the mucous membranes of the digestive tract.

Calendula extract is a healing, soothing liquid that can be mixed with water and applied to relieve burns, sores, itching, peeling and other skin ailments resulting from exposure to radiation.

Echinacea extract is rich in anti-inflammatory agents and acts as an antibiotic when applied to infected areas of the skin. It can be used in any skin ailment, especially those that become infected and septic.

Cleanse

Baking soda baths provide an excellent cleanse for removing radiation from body cells. Baking soda is highly alkaline and helps restore the body’s pH, reducing the incidence of acidosis — a state that fosters weakness and disease. Drinking baking soda mixed with water may help reduce inflammation and heal mouth sores resulting from exposure to radiation.

Homeopathy

Clinical experience has shown the efficacy of several homeopathic remedies for the treatment of radiation disease symptoms.

Cadmium sulphuratum may relieve itching, gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhea aggravated by the slightest movement, and severe flu-like aches and pains in the muscles. The person needing this remedy may feel chilled even in a warm room.

Phosphorus is often the first remedy needed after exposure to radiation. It can help reduce the pain and intensity of burns to the skin as well as lessen vomiting and other stomach upsets. A dose of Phosphorus may help center someone after being exposed, enable them to cope. People needing Phosphorus are often very thirsty for ice-cold water, which is vomited when becoming warm in the stomach.

Radium Bromatum may help people with severe aching, arthritic pains that are made better from movement. It’s also been found effective in the treatment of skin sores, ulcers and acne-like pustules as well as sores that are slow to heal.

Many other homeopathic remedies can offer relief for symptoms of radiation disease; however, no one should self-treat in the event of exposure. Seek the advice of a competent homeopathic practitioner. Remedies can be purchased from online homeopathic pharmacies and stored in the event of emergencies.

Improve memory loss by using natural alternatives


Thursday, March 29, 2012 by: Luella May (Naturalnews)

memory

(NaturalNews) As we grow older, we tend to worry more and more about our memory. Lapses in memory that we didn’t give much importance to when we were younger now seem to have a new meaning. It is common to do such things such as misplace things like car keys, eyeglasses and cell phones, to draw a blank on a friend’s name, to walk into a room and forget why we went there in the first place. However, although we all have had these experiences, as we age, we tend to worry about what these lapses could mean. It is important to realize that, contrary to popular belief, memory loss is not a natural process of aging. Our brains are capable of making new brain cells at any given age.

Memory loss becomes serious when it interferes with our daily activities

Examples of this are:

▪ Not being able to perform daily tasks, such as paying bills, dressing properly, tending to daily hygiene, etc.;
▪ Getting lost in familiar places, such as an immediate neighborhood;
▪ Repeating the same phrases and questions in the same conversation;
▪ Being unable to recall recent events;
▪ Repeatedly misusing or garbling words;
▪ Difficulty in making choices;
▪ Exhibiting socially inappropriate behavior.

In these cases, a diagnosis is needed to determine the root of the cause.

Often though, there is a physical reason for these memory lapses. For example, there may be a nutritional deficiency or it could be due to a faulty thyroid. In older adults, dehydration could be the cause. Excessive alcohol consumption creates brain toxicity and increases the risk of such conditions as Alzheimer’s and dementia. By the same note, smoking can cause vascular disorders that can limit oxygen to the brain.

Keeping cognitive functions in a healthy state entails leading a healthy lifestyle

Making sure that the body gets the nutrition it needs includes:

▪ Regular physical exercise which decreases the risk of memory loss and encourages the production of new brain cells.

▪ Exercising the brain is also important. Activities such as reading, working crossword puzzles, and playing strategic games such as chess or scrabble will lower the risk of mental decline.

▪ Proper nutrition that focuses on lots of fruits, vegetables, and foods containing Omega 3 fatty acids. The antioxidants in fruits and vegetables serve to help keep the brain healthy and Omega 3’s help to retain memory.

▪ Giving the body the rest it needs. Sleep is necessary for all aspects involving cognitive function. Sleep deprivation leads to poor memory, concentration and decision-making.

▪ Avoding stress. Stress is a very common cause of memory loss. Stress dramatically increases the ability of toxins to pass through the blood-brain barrier. Also, prolonged stress results in high cortisol levels in the body which results in impaired memory. Efforts should be made to alleviate stress. One effective way is by laughing. As opposed to emotions that affect only specific areas of the brain, laughter affects wider areas. After all, they say that laughter is the best medicine.

Supplements that prevent and help to reverse memory loss

▪ Ginkgo Biloba has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years to treat memory loss.
▪ Colloidal Gold improves memory, concentration, and mental focus.
▪ Acetyl-I Carnatine also improves mental focus, as do amino acids such as L-Tryptophan, 5HTP, and Tyrosine.
▪ B-Complex Vitamins help to prevent memory loss.
▪ Inositol helps the brain to process information.
▪ Choline helps in overall brain function.
▪ Fortify your brain with antioxidants which include carotenoids, flavonoids, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium and NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine).
