Most Human Beings Are Lactose Intolerant: Here’s Why

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

Collective Evolution  Photo: Pixabay Most Human Beings Are Lactose Intolerant: Here’s Why Collective Evolution Lactose intolerance is when the body does not produce enough lactase to break down lactose, a sugar found in milk and many other milk derived dairy products. The enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose is lactase, an enzyme found on the wall of the intestines. Lactase breaks down lactose (the sugar found in milk) into galactose and glucose. The activity of lactase becomes reduced after breastfeeding, at that point the body no longer needs as much lactase. Not to mention a human mothers milk is much different from the milk of a cow. The reduction of lactase activity after infancy is a genetically programmed event.  Approximately 75 % of Earths population is lactose intolerant for a reason, that’s because it’s perfectly natural. The statistics vary...

Are You Brushing Your Teeth with a Carcinogenic Endocrine Disruptor?

Posted by on Aug 28, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

Nutritional Anarchy   Are You Brushing Your Teeth with a Carcinogenic Endocrine Disruptor? Nutritional Anarchy Some very damning evidence has come forward that the ingredient triclosan, originally registered as a pesticide but used in more modern times in a wide array of hygiene products, is an endocrine disruptor that may also cause other health issues like cancer, thyroid dysfunction, and infertility just to name a few. Now that this has come to light, Colgate still refuses to remove the compound from its number one best-selling toothpaste, Total. After all, the company spent $38 million dollars and ten years getting it approved. In fact, Colgate continues to laud its FDA approval for Total some 17 years ago, while the FDA says that even though more studies have shown up in the meantime that merit further review (you know, whenever they...

Stephanie Marohn with Malidoma Patrice Somé / Waking Times   What a Shaman Sees in A Mental Hospital Stephanie Marohn with Malidoma Patrice Somé Waking Times The Shamanic View of Mental Illness In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born. What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé....

Vitamin D for Depression, Dementia, and Diabetes

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

Dr. Mercola / Waking Times   Vitamin D for Depression, Dementia, and Diabetes Dr. Mercola Waking Times Vitamin D research has repeatedly shown that vitamin D can improve a number of brain disorders, including depression and dementia—the most devastating form of which is Alzheimer’s disease. Vitamin D receptors appear in a wide variety of brain tissue early in the fetal development, and activated vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain. Researchers believe that optimal vitamin D levels may enhance the amount of important chemicals in your brain and protect brain cells by increasing the effectiveness of the glial cells in nursing damaged neurons back to health. Vitamin D may also exert some of its beneficial effects on your brain through its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Vitamin D Deficiency Drastically Raises Your Risk for Dementia According to one recent study,1 , 2 seniors...

Forbes Calls Consumer Reports Anti-Science in a Pro-GMO Rant That … Lacks Science

Posted by on Aug 20, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

Nutritional Anarchy   Forbes Calls Consumer Reports Anti-Science in a Pro-GMO Rant That … Lacks Science Nutritional Anarchy Forbes Magazine is known for its lists of the wealthiest people and companies.  Frequently they use their influence to slyly support their big dollar buddies in the biotech industry. Forbes successfully plumbed a new depth with an attack on Consumer Reports magazine last week. Consumer Reports did an article ranking different milk substitutes for its readers.  In that report, they (gasp) referred to the inclusion of GMOs as a “con” in their review on soy milk. This caused Forbes Magazine to release the hounds in defense of genetically modified foods everywhere. The hound in this case was Jon Entine.  Entine, a pro-GMO activist, was very distressed by this report.  I know this because he said so, repeatedly, ranting his way through an entire...

The Top 15 Lies You’re Being Told About Health and Mainstream Medicine

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 1 comment

Marco Torres, Prevent Disease / Waking Times   The Top 15 Lies You’re Being Told About Health and Mainstream Medicine Marco Torres, Prevent Disease Waking Times Do you ever question what doctors, nutritionists, institutions and even science tells you about your health, food, environment and lifestyle? You should, because we live in an era of deception and duplicity where the most trusted and valued sources of information are hijacked by much bigger interests than you can imagine. The internet is one of the last frontiers for truth, informing and educating billions on why our systems of health, agriculture, medicine and many other areas we depend on are failing us. The reason they’re failing us is because corrupt governments, corporations and the media are constantly feeding us lies on a daily basis, which through repetition, the public eventually accepts as...

How Cumulative Sleep Debt Is Impacting Your Brain Functioning & Alertness

Posted by on Aug 3, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food, Video | 0 comments

Collective Evolution   How Cumulative Sleep Debt Is Impacting Your Brain Functioning & Alertness Collective Evolution Sleep is at the core of so much of what we do. Whether you regularly monitor and ensure that you are always fully rested, or you just get what your life allows you to  get, we all spend a lot of time sleeping. On a microcosmic scale it’s quite easy to quantify the effects of not getting a good night’s rest, as we’ve all experienced some mixture of: fogginess, fatigue, burning eyes and a lack of alertness amongst other things. But what happens when we apply sleep deprivation to a macrocosmic scale? Cumulative Sleep Debt To help explain a lack of sleep over an extended period of time, scientists have coined the term ‘Cumulative Sleep Debt’ (CSD). CSD accounts for the lasting effects...

Turmeric Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo / Waking Times   Turmeric Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo Waking Times Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising! Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting...

I Am Serving a 10-Year Mandatory Minimum for Marijuana in Colorado

Eddy Lepp, Cannabis Now / Waking Times   I Am Serving a 10-Year Mandatory Minimum for Marijuana in Colorado Eddy Lepp, Cannabis Now Waking Times Oh, the joy and heartbreak of being here in Colorado. It is somewhat ironic that the Feds would send me here, to the only state that has made sales of marijuana completely legal, not only for its own citizens but also those just passing through. I am serving a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence for growing marijuana at low or no cost to whoever needed it in Northern California. I grew 30,000 plants out in the open to make sure anyone who needed medical marijuana got it, regardless of whether they could afford it. I am also a Rastafarian minister and using cannabis is part of our spiritual practice, and should be protected by the...

Andy Dilks, Staff Writer / Waking Times  Photo: Pixabay Cancer and Food – Mainstream Media Skeptical of Superfoods and Alkaline Diets Andy Dilks, Staff Writer Waking Times A recent science blog on the Cancer Research UK website triumphantly declared, “Don’t believe the type – 10 persistent cancer myths debunked.” In a world where incidents of cancer are growing at an alarming rate and more and more of us know of someone afflicted with one form of cancer or another, it predictably kickstarted a fierce debate as to the efficacy of the numerous forms of cancer treatment touted both by the establishment pharmaceutical industry and those researching alternative methods. Some of the myths the article purported to debunk included: Superfoods prevent cancer ‘Acidic’ diets cause cancer Cancer has a sweet tooth The implication was clear to many who read it...

Kris Gunnars, Guest / Waking Times   Not All Salt is Created Equally – The Types of Salt and Their Benefits Kris Gunnars, Guest Waking Times “Salt is what makes things taste bad when it isn’t in them.” – Unknown Salt is arguably the most important ingredient in cooking. Without it, most meals would taste bland and unexciting. However… not all salt is created equal and there are many “types” to choose from. We have Himalayan Pink Salt, Kosher Salt, Sea Salt, Celtic Salt (to name a few)… and then we have plain old refined table salt. Not only do they differ in taste and texture, but there are also some differences in mineral and sodium content. This article explores the most popular salt types… then at the end, gives you a direct comparison of their nutritional properties to...

The Truth About Fruit Juice

Posted by on Jul 5, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

Natasha Longo, Prevent Disease / Waking Times  Photo: Pixabay The Truth About Fruit Juice Natasha Longo, Prevent Disease Waking Times There was a time when fruit juices were marketed as the ultimate health drink. A glass of sunshine packed with vitamins and energy. However, one of the great scams of the industrial food cartel is the so-called “fresh” juices sold in supermarkets. Many of these “fresh” juices can be stored for a year, so how fresh are they? Generations were raised to believe orange juice fights off colds, boosts the immune system, tones the skin and protects against cancer. Yet in the topsy-turvy world of health advice, what’s good for you one day, turns out to be bad for you the next. So if fruit juice turns out to be such a devil in disguise, why have we all...

Shocking Agricultural Crisis Looms For One of The World’s Largest Coconut Producers Thanks To The Chemical Industry

Posted by on Jun 25, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 2 comments

Marco Torres, Prevent Disease / Waking Times  Photo: Pixabay Shocking Agricultural Crisis Looms For One of The World’s Largest Coconut Producers Thanks To The Chemical Industry Marco Torres, Prevent Disease Waking Times Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils in the world, and you may have noticed the price creeping up in the last few years. One of the reasons is due to the looming agricultural crisis in the Philippines, one of the world’s largest coconut producers. The coconut industry, which supports millions of Filipinos is slowly dying because of a massive insect infestation that has to date claimed 2 million trees. The irony is, the infestation is easy to arrest using inexpensive organic means, but the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) has sold out to the chemical industry which may kill the entire coconut economy that the Philippines...

Why You Should Avoid PVC Products

EcoWatch / Waking Times   Why You Should Avoid PVC Products EcoWatch Waking Times Ok, so you know about the potential health implications of BPA in plastic and you do your best to avoid it. But what about PVC in plastics and other products? PVC—polyvinyl chloride, or vinyl—is found in a range of products, from children’s toys to building materials to food packaging. Healthy Child Healthy World describes PVC as the most toxic plastic, and vinyl chloride, the chemical used to make PVC, has been described as a known carcinogen by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. PVC, because of its high chlorine content, creates toxic pollution in the form of dioxins, which accumulate in animals’ fat up through the food chain. Exposure to PVC often includes exposure to phthalates, which may have serious health effects. Besides health problems, there are...

Holistic healing

Posted by on Jun 19, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 0 comments

By Dr. Nandita Shah  Photo: Pixabay Holistic healing by Dr. Nandita Shah The body and the mind act in unison. Physical symptoms may indicate the state of mind or vice versa. Medical intervention should take into consideration the whole rather than isolated parts. This is the holistic approach. The purpose of holistic healing is to provide long-term improvement (which may even cause short-term pain). Intervention should be minimal since nature, in her wisdom, knows the best course. Pain can serve to make us aware of our emotional state, thus helping us in our own personal evolution. A natural diet, good exercise and calmness of mind can be one of the best means of holistic healing in a number of cases.   Symptoms as survival mechanisms Our body is always acting in self-preservation, and speaks to us through symptoms.

A Neuroscientist Explains What Happens To Your Brain When You Meditate

Posted by on Jun 18, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 1 comment

Waking Times / Collective Evolution   A Neuroscientist Explains What Happens To Your Brain When You Meditate Joe Martino, Collective-Evolution Waking Times Meditation is becoming very popular lately. Perhaps it’s the anecdotal evidence friends are sharing with each other or the fact that more and more science is coming out to confirm the benefits of meditation that it’s encouraging people to take up the practice. Meditation has shown to decrease stress, increase happiness, quality of life, increase grey matter in the brain, making people more compassionate, lowering blood pressure, increasing memory and more. A great series of benefits from such a peaceful practice. Meditation can be discouraging at times. It’s not easy to calm your mind, stop the thoughts and get into a space that is quiet.

Why You Are Insane If You Think GMOs Are Safe

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 in Blog, Health & Food | 1 comment

Sayer Ji, Green Med Info / Waking Times   Why You Are Insane If You Think GMOs Are Safe Sayer Ji, Green Med Info Waking Times You are insane if you are drinking Biotech’s GMO-infused Kool-Aid. Here’s why… Let’s put aside the debate about antigenic proteins introduced by transgenes in GMO crops. Transgenes are genes from species that are not naturally present in crops of feed or food importance, e.g. spider genes, bacterial genes, viral genes, etc. These transgenes are capable of producing proteins in the plants that have never been in the human diet over the course of human evolution, stretching back thousands, even millions of years. GM proponents and regulators claim pseudo-scientifically that these novel new GM foods are ‘substantially equivalent‘ to conventional ones, despite a lack of human clinical toxicology studies to prove it; or, they claim that...
