Modern Medicine

The treatment of symptoms

Modern allopathic medicine is a quasi-science that plays with chemistry and on the industrial level, corporate shareholders are more important than really helping people who are ill. Many people label modern medicine is a sickness industry because it seems to invest more in keeping people marginally unwell sufficiently that they can be productive members of society and yet always be dependent on the drugs they offer.

Vaccination Myths Debunked

Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone

Some people argue that experiencing the mumps, measles and chickenpox serves to keep your immune system is strong and it’s nature’s way of keeping humanity alive and strong. But the vaccination debate has taken a new turn as Australia regulates to make certain vaccinations compulsory with jail time for parents who choose not to have their children vaccinated.

The rampant fear that has been hyped up in the media is about the idea that the unvaccinated pose a threat to the vaccinated which of course is a load of hogwash. The whole idea of vaccination was to provide immunity and those who were immunised against polio, smallpox and other highly contagious diseases

Carpal Tunnel

A repetitive stress injury

click for a larger image

Carpal tunnel is an inflammation most often occurring in the wrists, arms and shoulders due to prolonged periods of consistent short movements such as typing, drawing, product assembly and other workplace activities. Typically the body is in a state of semi-rest and the activity is confined to the arms and shoulders. Due to this regular activity that is unsupported by the rest of the body, the heart rate is more restful and circulation inadequate to supply the nutrients or remove toxins from the affected ligaments and tendons.

The real preventative measure is to limit the time spent at such activities and engage more in activities where

Vaccine Safety Trials

Direct comparison KIGGS study

“I’ve been saying for sometime now that there are no long term double blind placebo based studies on vaccine safety. I’ve been saying that no studies have compared the long term health of vaccinated children to the long term health of unvaccinated children.

The one thing pro-vaccine and anti-vaccine people agree on, is that this type of study would settle the debate once and for all and it’s really frustrating that the CDC refuse to conduct such a study.

Well I was wrong.

There is an ongoing study in Germany that compares the long term health of 17,641 vaccinated children with that of 15,320 unvaccinated children.

The study shows that vaccinated children are:

Twice as likely

Alcohol Causes Cancer

New evidence of alcohol industry distortion of science

It is well known in the scientific literature that alcohol is a causative agent in at least seven different types of cancer including two of the commonest – breast and colorectal – but also including mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus, and liver. The evidence is based on over 100 studies since 2007, and the risk is not simply associated with heavy drinking; quite moderate amounts of alcohol are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

However, the public is surprisingly ignorant of these facts and one of the main reasons for this appears to be distortion of the evidence by the alcohol industry.

New research from Professor Mark Petticrew of the London School

Self Massage

A dimension in self awareness and care

Just like our mind can affect our body, our body can affect our mind. Often times, anxiety and tension will build up in our bodies, making it even harder to get rid of.

What massage does, among other things, is to bring attention to your muscles so you can relax them most effectively. Ideally it’s great to be massaged by someone else, but its also something you can do regularly to help relax and feel better about yourself.

Tips

You don’t need to be an expert, just do what you like in the way of stroking and rubbing over your skin. You can do your head, neck and face without oil, but some

Preventing Breast Sagging

How to have a proud and firm bust

Breasts for many are a social issue, yet every woman wants to have nicely shaped breasts throughout her life. Sadly, this is not possible in most cases due to lifestyle adaptations and the fact that breast sagging is a natural process that happens with age whereby the tissues supporting the breasts lose their suppleness and elasticity.

Breasts usually begin to sag after a woman reaches 40 though it can occur earlier. Apart from age, other factors that cause sagging breasts include overall health, fitness, posture, pregnancy and breastfeeding, menopause, rapid weight loss or gain, strenuous exercise, nutritional deficiencies and the brassier.

Some diseases like breast cancer or respiratory conditions like

Baking Soda and Cancer

Cure or Quackery?

Like cannabis, there is a huge amount of testimony that baking soda is effective in eliminating cancers but given the nature of cancers and the reluctance of individuals to modify their lifestyle, baking soda cannot be an across the board cure. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste and is encoded as food additive E 500.

Sodium bicarbonate is most commonly known as Baking Soda. It’s a natural chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3 composed of sodium ions and bicarbonate ions. In nature the natural mineral form is nahcolite, a component of the mineral natron that is found dissolved in many mineral springs. While Sodium bicarbonate can occur as a solid crystal, it is sold as baking
