Overreaction? Just a Little….
Texas nurse under investigation after posting about patient’s measles on anti-vaccination page A nurse at a hospital in Texas where a toddler tested positive for measles is now under investigation, according to hospital officials. Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston said it stopped a nurse from seeing patients after she reportedly posted about a young boy’s condition on an anti-vaccination group on Facebook, according to a statement. She allegedly wrote about the case on the “Proud Parents of Unvaccinated Children – Texas” Facebook page, which has since been deleted. A concerned parent posted screenshots of the unidentified nurse’s comments on the hospital’s Facebook page late Friday. “I think it’s easy for us nonvaxxers to make assumptions but most of us have never and will never see one of theses diseases,” the self-identified nurse wrote, according to the screenshots. “[F]or the first time in my career I saw measles this week. Actually most of my coworkers and the ER docs saw measles for the first time as well. And honestly, it was rough. The kid was super sick. Sick enough to be admitted to the ICU and he looked miserable. “By no means have I changed my vax stance, and I never will. But I just wanted to share my experience and how much worse it was than I expected,” she added.
Questions of The Day!
I am searching for where I can purchase homeoprophylaxis for my 26 yr old son who is going to Haiti for a quick visit. Wondering where to buy them and which ones in particular he might need while there… Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!
I am 76 yrs old and have been diagnosed with COPD aggravated by asthma. I have been on meds since I was 60. A friend just told me about silver and sent me your link. I am almost convinced that this would help me but was wondering if I should continue my meds. I currently take losaartan, Advair, Spiriva singular, zyrtec and benydryl plus I nebulize albuterol and salt water.. I have had pneumonia and bronchitis more times than I can count. The Dr. said it will not work my chiropractor said just try it a few times and see how it helps.
Dear Dr. Bell,
In your The Truth About Cancer 2017, you said that your children never took antibiotics.. my concern is rheumatic heart fever, which although rare can happen in case of a strep throat not treated with antibiotics. What are your thoughts on that?
Missouri Supports Common Sense!
It’s not ‘meat’ in Missouri unless it comes from animal On Tuesday, Missouri became the first state in the country to have a law on the books that prohibits food makers from using the word “meat” to refer to anything other than animal flesh. This takes aim at manufacturers of what has been dubbed fake or nontraditional meat. Clean meat – also known as lab-grown meat – is made of cultured animal tissue cells, while plant-based meat is generally from ingredients such as soy, tempeh and seitan. The state law forbids “misrepresenting a product as meat that is not derived from harvested production livestock or poultry.” Violators may be fined $1,000 and imprisoned for a year. A similar argument is unfolding on the federal level. The meat-substitute market is expected to reach $7.5 billion-plus globally by 2025, up from close to $4.2 billion last year, according to Allied Market Research.
Hour 2 – Cannabis Update!
Schizophrenia May Lead To Cannabis Use, Not the Other Way Around A study published today in the journal NatureNeuroscience makes a bold claim about the relationship between cannabis use and schizophrenia. Researchers found that the evidence supporting the theory that cannabis use can cause schizophrenia was “weak”—but found strong support for the idea that schizophrenia can cause or increase cannabis use. “Our findings may indicate that individuals at risk for developing schizophrenia” experience symptoms “that make them more likely to start using cannabis to cope or self-medicate,” wrote the study’s authors. The peer-reviewed report, which included contributions from more than 80 researchers around the world, was based on the largest genetic study of cannabis use ever undertaken.
Cost of Epidiolex vs Whole Plant Cannabis For Treatment Resistant Epilepsy As many of you have heard, Epidiolex, a nearly pure CBD (Cannabidiol) anti-epileptic made by GW Pharmaceuticals has been approved by the FDA and will probably launch sales mid 2019. The cost for an average patient for one year is over $32,000. This is on par with other anti-epileptics, but is certainly an astonishing cost when you compare this cost to the cost of whole plant CBD at it’s therapeutic dose. I specifically say “whole plant cannabis” because it always requires far less CBD than CBD isolates, and Epidiolex is no exception although not a pure isolate. So when comparing cost, it is essential to compare to the average cost of whole plant CBD at the dose where it is effective. In my experience, I very rarely use more than 100 mg per day in divided doses sublingually for intractable seizures. Not only is whole plant cannabis less expensive at around $5,000 per year, it requires a lower dose and I believe, as with other whole plant vs “isolate” studies, the whole plant CBD will prove to be more effective.

Untwisted: How to Use the Power of Love to Heal Your Emotional Pain It’s no secret that life can be hard. The emotional pain that comes with being human is often met with sadness, depression, loneliness, anger, or even rage. These reactions lead to more pain, and so a cycle of negativity is created. These days there is no shortage of pharmaceuticals being recommended to alleviate this type of suffering, but most of these drugs have potential side effects that could be worse than the problems themselves. And what’s more, they address only the symptoms of emotional pain, not the pain itself. Untwisted offers a different perspective on the subject and presents a unique step-by-step approach to breaking this cycle for good. Most of us go about our days under the delusion that happiness and fulfillment are feelings we need to search for in the outside world. This is twisted thinking. This book reveals that these concepts are not found beyond ourselves but rather lie within, and that we may achieve them by remembering a truth that has been with each and every one of us all along. Untwisted will guide you back to this truth and, in doing so, heal your emotional pain and bring you back to joy, your natural state. Untwisted proposes a proven drug-free technique you can use to eliminate the root cause of your emotional wounds and transform your life for the better. By following the simple but powerful practices described in this book, you may begin to untangle yourself from the sadness, loneliness, depression, and anger that have had you feeling tied up for so long.
Maybe You Need A Different Diet?
Merely thinking about the grocery store could lead to a lapse in diet Merely thinking about the food store could lead a dieter to make the wrong food choices, explains a new doctoral dissertation. What is happening if a consumer on a diet is being guided towards unhealthy food choices without being aware of it? “For people battling with their weight, the food store may appear more like a parlour of sweet treats than a place to make healthy purchases. With that in mind, should food stores change their offering so that the environment is more conducive to consumers making healthier food choices?” considers Maijastiina Jokitalo, who successfully defended her doctoral dissertation at the University of Vaasa, Finland.
