"Pure" Coconut Oil a cure for Alzheimer's...

My Step-Mother is whom I have to give credit to turning me onto this new information. I'll say, I find this extremely fascinating and I don't have Alzheimer's. But, how about using "Pure" Coconut Oil to treat, slow down, reverse, and even cure Alzheimer's Disease? You heard it, "Pure" Coconut Oil. No, this not some new fancy drug approved by the FDA with the standard laundry list of side effects that only works on a small percentage of people. Hey, it's ORGANIC... That means it's abundant and inexpensive. So, how was this discovered? Dr. Mary Newport's husband had the indications of severe Alzheimer's Disease. Through her own efforts, and love, she wanted to help her husband. So, she set out to learn everything she could about the disease. Her conclusion was... YOU WILL HAVE TO WATCH THE 6 MINUTE VIDEO LINK BELOW to hear the answer. Just remember, it's "Pure" Coconut Oil which means it is Non-Hydrogenated. If it's Hydrogenated or Partially Hydrogenated (processed), then stay away. Those are the types used in junk foods that become Trans Fats. "Pure" Coconut Oil is also a natural anti-biotic, a virus killer, and raises your good cholesterol, the HDL. This is showing such impressive results, it's now also being used on HIV, ALS, Parkinson's, Autism, Epilepsy, Schizophrenia, and Dementia patients. It's all about the Ketones...

Acupuncture to heal the body...

The first thing I hear from someone who has never tried Acupuncture is a negative disposition. They rant and rave like children about all those needles. Needles, needles, and more needles. Oh, and all the pain that is caused from all those needles. Pain, pain, and more pain. Why would someone ever do that to themselves I hear. Blah, blah, blah. What this tells me is that they have never tried Acupuncture. It also tells me they probably don't know of someone that has and have never even researched it just to see what it is about. You know, that's okay. Of course, this post is here to help educate you on Acupuncture. So, don't be scared and please read on.
Acupuncture is a form of Eastern Medicine, first used by the Chinese, dating back over 2000 years ago. It is where sterile, stainless steel, THIN NEEDLES (the thickness of 1x-2x of human hair), are inserted into the superficial (top, outer, not bottom or inside) part of the skin. The needles are placed into specific points so as to open up the body's own energy, referred to as "Qi". Acupuncture aims to correct the body's improper flow and balance of Qi through stimulating the meridian points (energy channels) in the body. Therefore, it allows the body's own energy to heal itself. Acupuncture is commonly used for healing your internal organs, pain management, reducing nausea, increasing fertility, depression, to stop smoking, sleep disorders, detoxification, hunger control, reduce inflammation, reducing spasticity, increasing blood circulation, and the list goes on and on. It can also be used with other traditional Chinese practices. These may include: Moxiburstion, Tuina, Cupping, Electro-Stimulation, or Ear, Scalp, and Hand Acupuncture and/or Acupressure. Now, please understand that Acupuncture is just more than putting needles into your skin. ONLY seek a licensed Acupuncturist for their for their professional expertise and guidance. DO NOT TRY INSERTING ANY NEEDLES INTO YOUR BODY.

As for myself, I have tried Acupuncture on many occasions. So, I am practicing what I am preaching here. The first time I tried Acupuncture is when I was having problems sleeping. It felt like I was not getting any sleep when I woke up in the morning. I was feeling drowsy and irritable as heck. So, I made my appointment. The day I tried Acupuncture, that night I slept solid as a rock. I awoke in the morning feeling refreshed and it was like I had caught up on a month's of sleep. It was great. So great, I used it many more times through out the years for the same reason. I also used Acupuncture three other times when I had muscle strains. My bicep, shoulder, and lower back muscle strains were caused from playing hockey. Though, what was remarkable these times, was each muscle strain only took two one hour appointments to get rid of the pain, heal me up, and get me back on the ice again. I will tell you that these three muscle strains felt so bad, I thought it would take weeks and weeks of rest and some therapy. Not the case at all.

So, keep an open mind when it comes to healing your body. At sometime, Acupuncture may be the right choice for you too.

Lemon Drop Cupcakes Help Induce Labor...

There may be a lot of crazy things in this world, but when it comes to methods of inducing labor, this one takes the cake. Or, Lemon Drop Cupcakes in this case. It has been noted that 19 pregnant women that have eaten Lemon Drop Cupcakes, from Cappellino's Crazy Cakes, have induced labor shortly after. So, do these Lemon Drop Cupcakes really help induce labor? Well, there is no true clinical research to support this at all. Though, these Lemon Drop Cupcakes are baked fresh daily, made from scratch, and can be special ordered and shipped. Darn they sound tasty and tempting. There is no special or secret ingredient that is added to help induce labor. Call it just pure coincidence?

"Factor X" maybe The Fountain of Youth...

Very encouraging news coming from The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Sit down, read, and watch the video link. THERE IS HOPE ON THE HORIZON. What Pitt's researchers have found is that our own body's stem cells get "worn out" as we get older. Thus, the body is not as resistant to cancer, auto-immune diseases, and cannot not repair as quickly as when we were younger. Well yeah, we all kind of already knew or  thought that. But, what was discovered is that by introducing healthy immature stem cells from a muscle, that they rejuvenated the test subjects (pre-maturley aging mice) life span by 2x, and sometimes more. In addition, they had the ability to repair damaged organs. That's great news. But, what is Factor "X". Simply, it's the name for now, that Pitt's researchers have given the secretion that the immature muscle stem cells gave off that caused the rejuvenating. I say bring it on Factor "X". The elderly, ill, and disabled are ready and waiting...

LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) for Autoimmune Diseases...

In 1985, Dr. Bihari, a physician from NYC, discovered that a Low Dose of Naltrexone (LDN), 3mgs, taken at bedtime could boost the body's own immune system. He started with his HIV patients so that the HIV infection could not eventually form the AIDS virus. Then in the 1990's Dr. Bihari began trying LDN on some of his cancer and auto-immune patients. The results showed a halt or slower progression. Research over the past 20 years has shown now is that slight increases in the body's own Endorphins has a positive effect on boosting the body's immune system.
I'll let you read the links I have provided to continue on with the details and facts. This is truly an exciting discovery that gets minimal publicity. Why? The standard answer is BIG PHARMA did not discover the other uses of Naltrexone. Anyway, I have tried LDN on two different occasions with my own auto-immune diseases. This not not a cure. This is one heck of a therapy and it's cheap. ONLY $30 A MONTH. So with the cost being so minimal, the main side effect is that you have vivid dreams, I had to try it and you should too. I have Lupus (now in remission), TM, and MS. LDN had worked wonders for me both times. But the results of my improvements only lasted six months for me each time. Then I unfortunately started relapsing again. Though, when you can with in a two week period, all of the sudden can start walking... TEARS OF JOY COMING RUNNING DOWN YOUR FACE. You may have better and longer lasting results than me and I hope you do.

Vitamin D and Multiple Sclerosis...

A few years back, research suggested that by taking Vitamin D, D3 to be exact, would help Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. That's right, something other than just preventing Osteoporosis. It was all over the news. It was exciting to hear a vitamin could help MS patients. But, there was one problem. The news agencies never told how it would help, why it worked, and a suggested dosing. Well, I figured I would go to the internet and easily find my answer. NOT SO UNFORTUNATELY. Well after some digging around the
internet, I did find the answers. Vitamin D3 naturally surpresses the immune system. Similar to an oral chemotherapy drug. Therefore, with a supressed immune system, the auto-immune disease, MS in this case, becomes less aggressive, with fewer and less intense exacerbations. That is great news. But, how does it work? The D3 reduces the number of "T Cells". Very similaer to what chemotherapy does BUT WITH NO ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS. As far as dosage, that ranges from 4000mgs to 10,000mgs as a daily supplement. Of course, consult your Holistic Doctor before you start taking Vitamin D3 for MS.

Olive Leaf Extract...

Well, the topic of Olive Leaf Extract was introduced to me by my Father. Therefore, credit should be given to him. As it is, my Father has High Blood Pressure and Type 1 Diabetes. Of course his doctor has some good ole prescriptions that he has been on for awhile now and that have not been effective. Not good. So, why not look for an Alternative Holistic Medicine approach that will work? That is where Olive Leaf Extract comes into play. Similar qualities and characteristics as Extra Virgin Olive Oil that is commonly used for HEALTHY cooking, Olive Leaf Extract can be taken in capsule form. And just what kind of results are we looking for? How about lowering your blood pressure, lowering the "bad" LDL Cholesterol in your blood, systemically reducing inflammation in the body, it's 4x stronger of an anti-oxidant than green tea, and it reduces arterial plaque formation in the heart. Sounds darn good huh. Research has suggested that 500mgs, 2x daily, should be the necessary dosage. Of course consult your Holistic Doctor for their recommendation. Unfortunately, the Western Medicine Doctors most likely will not have a remote clue about the effects and dosing of Olive Leaf Extract. Finally, is Olive Leaf Extract expensive? A 30 day supply should cost you about $12.00 and that's darn inexpensive.

Breast Cancer Clinical Trials...

No one ever wants cancer. It does not matter what type, where it is on/in the body. If it's you, your family, a friend, or co-worker. It's a dreaded word to hear and it's mentioned to frequently. Though, there are "traditional" protocols to treat and cure various forms of cancer, sometimes these are not what maybe right for you. Western Medicine does offer clinical trails for new possible therapies and cures. Yes, clinical trials at the varying stages may or may not be right for you. Yet, it is a possibilty to consider. Breast Cancer Trials has a lot of information regarding Breast Cancer and the Clinical Trails that are offered through various hospitals and universities. So, forward this website on to others. You just may help save a life of someone you know, or, don't directly know.
