Your potential to experience true wellness for years to come greatly depends on your brain health. Why? Because your brain controls every function and every organ in your entire body. As a result, the health of your body is a direct reflection of the health of your brain.
Unfortunately, our modern American society does not nurture great brain health. In fact, quite the opposite is promoted. From extreme levels of mental and emotional stress to brain compromising chemicals in our food supply and mind altering medications, it is very difficult to maintain good brain health.
Influenza (flu) season is here. The media and CDC have been heavily pushing the influenza vaccine for over a month already. However, research has shown that this year’s flu shot is extremely toxic, ineffective and unsafe! Did you know that the 2013-2014 influenza vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury? The vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than the safety limit for drinking water! Did you know that infant and pediatric flu deaths were on the decline until 2003 when the pediatric influenza vaccine was introduced? After that, the pediatric death rate skyrocketed! Before you choose to vaccinate yourself and your children, get the facts about the influenza vaccine.
I have recently written several articles on the problems and dangers of the flu shot. Read here about why the flu shot is more dangerous than the flu. You can also read here about how the media-reported flu deaths have been hyped up in order to scare people into the flu shot. Healthcare decisions, in general, can be complicated. The vaccine decision is even more complicated due to the vast amount of conflicting information. Before you make these decisions, I urge to move past the hype and get the facts!
Most importantly, you must know that your body is intelligently designed to fight the hundreds of influenza viruses that cause the flu. Your immune system is amazingly well equipped to help you prevent colds, flu and even cancer. Developing a flu-proof immune system is an essential part of your health plan this year. You can stay well! Even if you do get sick, you can overcome the flu and heal.
This astounding report was written by Mary Tocco, independent vaccine investigator. She reveals the truth about this years influenza vaccines and the facts that the pharmaceutical industry and the CDC do not want you to know. This is information provides facts not hype. It is exactly what you need in order to confidently make your decision about the influenza vaccine.
The cure for any disease seems to be quite mythical. We assume that medical research is sincerely searching for a cure for many diseases such as cancer. Yet, to this day, there has never been a drug that has cured anything. In fact, the use of the word cure has drastically declined over the last hundred years. Not only will you never find a cure for disease, you do not even want a cure for disease!
Ask yourself which you prefer: a cure or a healing? Is it better to fight and conquer disease or to support the innate healing of your body? In the vast majority of cases, disease is not a foreign invader. Rather, it is an abnormal response of your own body. Fighting disease is fighting your own body. It is counterproductive to real health.
You do not want a cure. You need healing. Healing is not a mystical concept. It is the natural state of the human body. Your body is designed to heal itself.
It’s no secret that our healthcare system is broken. More and more people are also realizing that ObamaCare is not the solution! It takes more than expanding access to our current broken sick care system. We must let go of these healthcare myths and develop a new healthcare system that is based on building real health and healing!
The American Healthcare system is filled with many inconsistencies. In the last article, we learned about these healthcare myths:
Myth #1: ObamaCare Will Save our Health Care System
Myth #2: Pharmaceutical Drugs Make You Healthy
Myth #3: Vaccination Provides Immunity
Myth #4: Low Fat Diet Foods Help You Lose Weight
Myth #5: Chiropractic Healthcare is Only for Bad Backs and Necks
In this article, we cover five more.
What do the American Health Care system and Unicorns have in common? They are both mythical creatures! Our health care system does little to care for our health. In fact, it is not a health care system, it is a sick care system! Here are several examples to help you understand how to move past disease management and into real healing.
As a physician, I have had to face the bleak realities of our broken health care system for many years. It is crippled by design. For my patients to move past managing illness and achieve true healing, they have to understand these health care myths and know what a real health care system actually looks like.
It infuriates me that we are lied to about our health everyday! We have been told that disease comes from bad genes and bad germs and that there is nothing we can do about it. This is a lie! You have been told that pharmaceutical drugs produce health, that your ADD/ADHD child must take drugs for the rest of his life and there is nothing you can do about it. We have been told that there is no cure for cancer. Lies, lies and more lies!
We have been told that vaccines are completely safe and effective for your health. This is a lie! We have been told that ObamaCare is an affordable way to save our failing health care system. This is a lie! We have been told that GMO foods, fluoride, high fructose corn syrup and pesticide laden foods do not make us sick. These are yet more lies! If we are not cautious, we may just begin to believe the lies ourselves. How do we protect ourselves from a world full of lies and misinformation regarding our health?
Flu season – the fifth season of the year – is upon us. So we hear from the mainstream media, pushing flu shots, anyway. However, I have no use for it – the flu or the flu shot – and choose not to participate. Flu, or influenza, is a virus, a germ, a bug – it is NOT a season! Wouldn’t you like to exempt yourself from the ‘flu season’? You can – by building a flu proof immune system!
For years, the American people have been lied to about flu shots and flu related deaths! The CDC has been telling the public for nearly a decade that there are more than 200,000 estimated hospitalizations and 36,000 estimated deaths from influenza in the U.S. every year.(1) However, these numbers are not truthful! They do not represent people who actually died from the flu. They are only estimates of other causes of death that are assumed to be flu-related. They serve only to scare millions of Americans into getting the dangerous – sometimes deadly – flu shot.
The verdict is in on the flu shot. Many medical experts now agree it is more important to protect yourself and your family from the flu vaccine than the flu itself. Let’s take a look at the reasons behind this verdict. From extremely toxic ingredients and lack of sufficient research to disabling and even deadly side effects, here are 20 reasons you’ll want to consider before stepping up for your annual flu jab.
Coronary heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States. Accounting for 1 in every 4 deaths, it takes the lives of 600,000 people every year!(1) According the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report(2), heart disease has been the leading cause of death since 1921. That tells me that we are doing something very wrong in the way we approach the treatment of heart disease and our health in general. There has to be a better way. Is there something more effective than the standard medical treatments?
