“Ebola is in the news everywhere and on everyone’s minds. Fear and concern seem to be a common thread. Each day we tune into the news to see the status of the latest victim or the progression of the disease. We saw an article the other day entitled, “Are Rental Cars Safe from the Ebola Virus“. All this talk about a deadly virus can be frightening.

“What we need to remember though is, ebola is a virus just like the flu virus. Sure, the effects of this particular virus can be devastating but it is still just a virus. What’s the point? Ebola isn’t something that God didn’t design the body to be able to defend against. The problem is that most people have weakened their defenses – or shall we say they have weakened their immune system.”

FDA Reverses Its Position on Daily Aspirin

If you haven’t had a heart attack, step away from the aspirin bottle… If you are one of the 40 million Americans who take an aspirin every day, you may want to heed the latest warning from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

After many decades of promoting aspirin, the FDA now says that if you have not experienced a heart problem, you should not be taking a daily aspirin—even if you have a family history of heart disease. This represents a significant departure from FDA’s prior position on aspirin for the prevention of heart attacks.

On its website, the FDA now says:12

“FDA has concluded that the data do not support the use of aspirin as a preventive medication by people who have not had a heart attack, stroke or cardiovascular problems, a use that is called ‘primary prevention.’ In such people, the benefit has not been established but risks — such as dangerous bleeding into the brain or stomach — are still present.”

Their announcement was prompted by Bayer’s request to change its aspirin label to indicate it can help prevent heart attacks in healthy individuals. Aspirin generated $1.27 billion in sales for Bayer last year,3 and from Bayer’s request, it appears they want everyone to be taking their drug.

But the FDA says “not so fast”—and rightly so. Evidence in support of using aspirin preventatively has gone from weak to weaker to nonexistent. This is why I’ve been advising against it for more than a decade. It looks as though aspirin, even “low-dose aspirin” (LDA), may do far more harm than good.

In fact, it is debatable whether or not aspirin has ANY protective benefits against cardiovascular disease, even if you have suffered a heart attack or stroke. Recent scientific studies have uncovered a number of serious side effects, suggesting that whatever aspirin may offer may be overshadowed by its risks, especially when safer natural alternatives exist.

As is true for nearly all medications, the longer we watch for side effects, the more we tend to find—even for drugs like aspirin that have been around for more than 100 years. Just because aspirin is an over-the-counter drug and has been around for more than a century does not mean that it’s harmless……

Natural Treatments for Ebola Virus Exist

“While the conventional medical system reflexively puts its faith and money into drug and vaccine development, with NIH recently announcing it will begin an early trial on Ebola vaccines this September of this year, very little research has been performed on reducing risk, or mitigating post-infection harm, with the use of time-tested, natural immune-boosting and/or plant-based approaches. Given the low safety risk and cost of botanical- and food-based interventions, this is where we should be looking first for viable, and immediately accessible solutions. Indeed, a recent study published in 2012 holds great promise as far as identifying a natural way to mitigate the virulence – and therefore also widespread fear — associated with Ebola virus.”

Healing Should Be Logical (Not make you worse)

Michael Painfree
May 2, 2014


We need to drastically re-think the way that we treat disease, especially regarding cancer. Healing and homeostasis is the natural state of the human body. It is logical. However, the vast majority of traditional cancer treatments do not honor the concept of innate healing and are illogical. This article discusses some great concepts that will challenge the way you view treatment of cancer and other disease.

As Thomas Pychon said, “if you can get people to ask the wrong question, the answer does not matter”. That is the case with cancer and most diseases. With cancer and most diseases, you must treat the person, the whole person, the body ecology, if you are to have success and restore homeostasis. If your doctor says “take this drug”, you should ask “what part of my body function does it replace, improve, or fix”. The answer to this will clarify your decision process.

Cancer’s treatments current goal, albeit, misguided, is “I want my doctor to shrink the tumor until it disappears”. Caveat: If you get people to set the wrong goal, the result doesn’t matter.”
