Attacks against homeopathy: what are its opponents afraid of? The patient is like a customer. And customers get irritated pretty quickly with suppliers or providers who don’t play the ball down the middle. The ongoing virulent, constant attacks launched on homeopathy in the Western world are leaving us, as patients, particu- larly perplexed. But what exactly is making the opponents of homeopathy so afraid? Why this aggressive behaviour against an alternative medicine that offers so much satisfaction to patients? Explain it to us, if you can. Don’t expect this article to come up with systematic counter-arguments to fend off the criticisms put forward at every turn by the enemies of homeopathy. Patients, whom some would call gullible, have more faith in their own experience with homeopathy than in so-called scientific explanations supported by unverifiable statistics. Patients make comparisons; that’s all there is to it. And they remember what works for them. And usu- ally they couldn’t care less about the why and how of it. Let’s face it: today’s customers/patients are fickle. If conventional medicine no longer suits them, they turn their back on it. They’re sick to the back teeth with side-effects, condescending doctors and 6-minute consultations conducted with one eye on the clock. And complementary or alternative medicines – of which homeopathy is one – had better be on their toes as well. Because if patients don’t think the alternatives work, they’ll drop them, too. Just like that. After all, it’s their God-given freedom. Let us just say to everyone involved in the healthcare sector: the customer/patient/citizen is always right, even when he’s wrong. It’s up to the professionals to adjust to market demand, not the other way round. They’re the ones working on behalf of the patient, who pays their salary! Which is why doctors owe him respect.
FDA finds traces of heavy metals in kratom products The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday it had found high levels of heavy metals such as lead and nickel in some kratom products, following field investigations. The regulator has been clamping down on the substance, which advocates say help ease pain and reduce symptoms of opioid withdrawal, but which the FDA says has similar effects to narcotics such as opioids and has resulted in dozens of deaths. Levels of metal in kratom-based products would likely not result in poisoning based on single use, but could cause people to suffer if used persistently, FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb said. “The findings of identifying heavy metals in kratom only strengthen our public health warnings around this substance,” Gottlieb said here in a statement. While kratom is not controlled under the Federal Controlled Substances Act, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has listed it as a “drug and chemical of concern”.

Stephen Hillenburg Dead: ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ Creator Dies at 57 Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of the Nickelodeon animated megahit SpongeBob SquarePants, died Monday. He was 57. Hillenburg, a former marine biology teacher, died of complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at his home in Southern California. He was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease in March 2017. Nickelodeon announced his death in a tweet Tuesday: “We are sad to share the news of the passing of Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants. Today, we are observing a moment of silence to honor his life and work.” Hillenburg was a nine-time Emmy nominee for SpongeBob but never a winner.
Reggie Bush posts anti-vaccine video on Twitter Now enjoying retirement following an 11-year NFL career, Reggie Bush took to Twitter on Sunday with a question he wanted his 2.88 million followers to answer: Do they believe this extremely anti-vaccine video he just found? Claiming that he had been reading and watching videos on vaccinations and their “dangers,” the 33-year-old linked to a video of a retired nurse castigating a CDC panel over its vaccine regulations and pushing the widely debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. The video has since been deleted for violating YouTube’s terms of service. Like Mike Leach before him, Bush took a video and tried to host a conversation with his followers about the topic, even though hosting a neutral conversation is borderline impossible when you begin with a video espousing an extreme and demonstrably false premise. Bush, who currently works as an analyst for NFL Network, spent the next few hours retweeting and replying to followers from both sides of an argument in which every reputable scientist and doctor stands together.
Special Guest Morley Robbins
Morley joins us to talk about Acetominophen (Tylenol/Panadol) & it’s Role in CAUSING:
o Atopy… (dermatitis like!)
Morley M. Robbins (aka. “Magnesium Man”) has a mainstream medical industry background. That’s intriguing when you consider that he is now devoted to promoting natural and preventive health solutions. Morley had been a hospital executive and consultant for 32 years when, several years ago, he developed a condition called “frozen shoulder.” His family doctor quickly recommended surgery as the only hope for Morley if he wanted to be able to lift his right hand above his waist ever again. Friends who owned a health food store intervened and encouraged Morley to try chiropractic care. His initial response: “Thanks guys, but I don’t do witchcraft.” Several months later, the pain was wearing on him, and his friends insisted. It only took a couple weeks of “light touch chiropractic care” (Network Spinal Analysis) before his shoulder had full range of motion once again. The experience was so life-changing for Morley, he questioned everything he knew — or thought he knew — about healing. He left the world of hospital administration and became a Wellness Coach.
EVIDENCE THAT INCREASED ACETAMINOPHEN USE IN GENETICALLY VULNERABLE CHILDREN APPEARS TO BE A MAJOR CAUSE OF THE EPIDEMICS OF AUTISM, ATTENTION DEFICIT WITH HYPERACTIVITY, AND ASTHMA One of the puzzling aspects of autism is the marked increase in the incidence of autism that began in the United States in the early 1980s and has appeared to increase continuously since then. The highest incidence of autism has been reported to be South Korea, where the incidence is now reported to be one in 38 boys. Increased incidence of autism due to more effective diagnosis was disproved in the study of Irva Hertz-Picciotto who showed that perhaps 12% of the increased autism diagnoses could be attributed to improved diagnosis . A wide range of environmental factors has been associated with increased autism incidence, including pesticides, chemicals, phthalates, polychlorinated biphenyls, solvents, heavy metals or other pollutants. Although toxic chemicals are undoubtedly not beneficial for the health of any person, is there any information that indicates that a toxic avalanche of chemicals inundated the United States in the early 1980s? Indeed a wealth of knowledge about environmental chemicals has led to marked reductions in exposure to chemicals such as lead and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) in the United States over the past 50 years. For example, acceptable safe limits for levels of lead in the blood have decreased from 60 μg/dL in 1960 to <5 μg/dL in 2010
Cannabis Oil Was Used To Treat Epilepsy 173 Years Ago Epilepsy drugs don’t work well, or at all, for about one-third of people with the condition. Unfortunately, these hard-to-treat epilepsies are associated with an increased risk of premature death. Anecdotal evidence suggests that cannabis oil may help some of these people control their seizures and potentially save their lives. A small number of studies have shown that adding cannabis oil to existing medication may be effective in devastating, hard-to-treat epilepsy in children and adolescents. But cannabis oil as a treatment in paediatric epilepsy is not a new discovery, it is merely a rediscovery. In 1840, Victorian Doctors were treating people with extracts of cannabis for many illnesses, including tinctures for treating children with epilepsy. One of my favourite pioneers was Dr William Brooke O’Shaughnessy MD, an irish physician, surgeon, Professor of chemistry, scientist and innovator, he was a pioneer of ‘intravenous therapy’ and he is the man credited with introducing cannabis to Western medicine.
