The Dangers of Fluoride in Drinking Water Part 2

The Dangers of Fluoride in Drinking Water Part 2

Following on from last weeks article, we will explore the solutions and things you can do to help get this poision out of our drinking water. If you missed last weeks part 1 you can find it on the www.naturalhealthireland.com website.

Mass Medication

The FDA in America has classified fluoride as a drug. People have a choice whether or not to take a drug, so  the Irish people are simply being mass medicated against their will. This must be stopped! Where you ever asked for your consent to be medicated?. Ireland has been fluoridating the water supplies since 1964. “Since then fluoride has never once been tested for safety to assess its impact on human health, even though under the 1960 water fluoridation health act, the government are required to test for possible adverse health effects. Doses of the fluoride drug/chemical into the body cannot be controlled, for example an athelete will drink more water than the average person, and what about someone who drinks vasts amount of tea on a daily basis?, and babies who totally rely on fluid, are people being more damaged in the summer time when fluid intake is higher? are some people being “OVERDOSED?” I think the common sense answer to this question is a resounding “YES”!. As  far back as 2007 a Donegal survey  by Dr Peter Mansfield into the fluoride levels of 32 subjects, concluded that only nine people tested within a safe intake with one urine sample being four times higher than what is regarded as safe, while four others were twice the limit. Read full report here- http://www.derryjournal.com/news/levels-of-fluoride-in-inishowen-water-unsafe-1-2116696

Food

Fluoride is not just in the water but in every food and drink product that is made using tap water in Ireland, as well as in most toothpaste. The level of fluoride in drinking water in Ireland has been set at between 0.6-0.8 parts per million (PPM) nearly one part per million, studies have shown this to be not a safe level. But apart from that simply put “there are no safe levels”, this chemical waste product should not be ingested by the human body at all in any doses whatsoever.

In an interview with Vin Byrne on Peoples Internet Radio  http://peoplesinternetradio.com, Aisling Fitzgibbon a young Kerry woman who donned the mantle “The Girl Against Fluoride” to raise awareness spoke about some of the fluoride levels in some Irish products that she got tested in a private laboratory in Co. Louth. Cheese came in at an astounding  29 PPM, Cider at 9 PPM, Oats 3 PPM and butter at 5 PPM. Listen to the podcast here- http://podcaststorage.weebly.com/uploads/1/2/8/9/12897302/pod-joe-murphy-aisling-fitzgibbon.mp3 Most Irish brewed beers and stout are also brewed in fluoridated water. There are astoundingly high levels of flouride in foods simply because tap water is being used in the production. I wonder how this is tolerated in Europe? exported Irish products are saturated with flouride while it is banned in most of Europe and there is an EU directive already in place against food prepared in fluoridated water. Is it a coincidence that there are many more cancers and diseases around today that never existed years ago? Is there a connection? Well the precautionaly principle needs to be exercised here, avoid fluoride as best you can until it is removed.

Solutions

If you want to get involved in trying to get Fluoride removed from your drinking water or you just want to protect youself and your family well there are many solutions.

1)      STOP DRINKING TAP WATER asap!! Fit a reverse osmosis filter or get a water distiller unit to remove fluoride, ordinary water filters wont do it. Dont cook food in tap water.

2)      CARRY WATER FROM A WELL, or buy water, there is a good well in Burt on main Letterkenny Road , and at the Youth Club in Buncrana.

3)      USE A FLUORIDE FREE TOOTHPASTE and do not use tap water to make formula milk for bottle fed babies.

4)      LOBBY YOUR LOCAL COUNCILLORS AND TD’S to get fluoride removed as a matter of urgency, and educate them to the unknown dangers of having this in the drinking water. While the government are  trying to introduce water charges, this may be the ideal time to demand getting fluoride out and ask yourself the question why would you pay for something that can and will harm you?

5)      START YOUR OWN LOCAL ANTI-FLUORIDE GROUP, keep yourself informed “do your own research”, keep in touch with like minded people by joining  the Facebook page “Freedom from Fluoride” and help Aisling Fitzgibbon  who is taking legal action on behalf of the Irish people against the Irish government on the fluoride issue. She is trying to raise money to help with costs YOU CAN DONATE HERE- http://thegirlagainstfluoride.com/Aisling_fitzgibbon.html

The Acupuncture Treatment of Ovarian Cysts

The Acupuncture Treatment of Ovarian Cysts

Can Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) be used in the treatment of ovarian cysts? Yes it can and quite successfully too. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are the main healing modalities at the forefront of combating this most common of ailments that can afflict many women sometime in their lives.  There are many types of ovarian cysts and it is important for your medical doctor to look at a cyst closely with an ultrasound examination in order to identify if it is fluid-filled, solid or mixed. The shape, size and location are all important factors in determining if it can be left alone or if it should be removed or biopsied. Sometimes cysts can be related to endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In many cases the underlying endometriosis and/or PCOS would also have be treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as part of an overall effective treatment plan. Most common types of cysts are just fluid-filled follicles that did not rupture during ovulation to release the egg. Termed functional cysts, they usually go away within the menstrual cycle and cause no further problems. Sometimes they can be felt as twinges of pain or like a heavy ache in the abdomen. Occasionally a functional cyst can grow and then rupture causing intense abdominal pain until the body reabsorbs the fluid contents of the cyst. For women who have a tendency to develop these cysts often, then looking more closely at the underlying imbalance via TCM would be highly recommended. But many times the cyst can be of a solid persistent lump which may need much regular treatment to dissolve.

Chinese Medicine?

In Chinese medicine we view a cyst as a collection of stagnant fluid and blood, which then consolidates and becomes obstructive. In traditional Chinese medicine, ovarian cysts are considered to be a product of three main pathological factors: phlegm, dampness, and blood stasis. Each of these factors takes time to develop. Phlegm and dampness are due to an imbalance of the Spleens energy. The Spleen is responsible for transforming the food that we eat into energy (Chi) and blood. When the Spleens own energy is deficient, it begins to lose its ability to produce sufficient amounts of Chi and blood. While usually not a life-threatening situation, it is nonetheless viewed as a disruption in the body’s healthy processes. Women who have cysts have a hormone imbalance and are not ovulating optimally this can be one of the causes of infertility. Acupuncture helps to bring balance to the endocrine system and hormones and can directly affect ovulation. There are many amazing acupuncture techniques to help improve blood flow to the reproductive organs and optimise ovulation. Chinese herbs in conjunction with acupuncture may be used to help dissolve painful cysts as well. Women who have a tendency to develop cysts may have a pattern of symptoms that go along with this condition. It is possible that there are issues with sluggish digestion and the body produces excess mucus and dampness. This inefficiency can lead to dampness accumulating in other areas of the body as well such as ovarian cysts. Herbs can be used to improve the digestion and drain any dampness that is causing the body to develop points of stagnation.

Testimony to the effectiveness of TCM

In my own clinics I have recently and very successfully treated a young woman in her mid twenties who was suffering very intensely with pain and cramp when ever she was in the mid cycle of her period. She was suffering needlessly for quite a few years until she discovered acupuncture and now after a good few treatments, she is pain free and her period is much improved, but apart from this she now also has much more energy as well and is sleeping better. She also regularly took the Chinese Herbal formula called Xia Yao Wan this herb moved the stagnant Qi (chi) energy that was being blocked causing the energy to dam up which in turn created the cyst.  Before she came to me she had an ultrasound test and it was discovered that her cyst was roughly the size of a golf ball, after about 6 treatments the pain began to subside, and after roughly another 6 treatments (12 in total) she decided to have another scan, to her amazement and that of her doctors the cyst had completely disappeared. This halted surgery or any invasive treatments that she may have had to undergo if the problem persisted or the pain intensity had increased. Its powerful testimonies like this that clearly gives acupuncture the edge over many healing modalities and forms of medicine, that at best only give relief or the offering of life threatening surgery, Traditional Chinese Medicine on the other hand leaves no stone unturned to get to and treat the root cause of any and all diseases, only then can a complete and lasting cure ever be achieved. Over the years I have prevented much surgery and aggressive drug therapies, simply by applying the age-old natural wisdom that is Chinese medicine.

Acugraph Can You See the Chi?

Can you see the Chi

Acupuncture is based on the principle of a bio-electrical energy flow that courses through the entire body in channels or meridians, this energy or Qi flow (pronounced chi) can be influenced by the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles at specific points along the channels. As most people would  not be familiar with Eastern medical terminology like meridian therapy  then wouldn’t it be great if you could  actually see the channels energy via a computerised read out?.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the subtle state of the energy in your meridians or channels directly reflects the internal health of your body. Being able to actually see the state of your subtle life force energy has the potential not only to enhance the diagnposis for the practitioner but to  potentially prevent many problems long before they get a chance to actually manifest into some kind of  physical disorder? Disease starts way back in the energy field long before it reaches the physical body. Acupuncture is a great preventative medicine.

Acugraph is a system that electrically measures the levels of source energy in your acupuncture meridian channels. Acugraph utilises a small electronic pen like probe that is placed on the skin at acupuncture points for a few seconds until the reading is electronically recorded. The results of the Acugraph exam gives you a digital computerised image or print out of the actual internal state of your body’s energy field in real time.

First Impressions

Another great feature of the acugraph is after some treatment a patient can track their improvements by comparing print outs from previous acugraph examinations. The graphs usually show improvements.

The great thing about the art of Chinese Medicine is that you never stop learning or researching. In my opinion when the ancient knowledge of the pulse and tongue etc  is combined with the electrical measurement of the acupuncture channels then a very objective diagnosis can be concluded.

History

During one of my many research escapades on the internet I was amazed to find out that electrically measuring acupuncture channels was not a new thing. In 1951 an eminent Japanese doctor Dr.Yoshio Nakatani MD, PhD developed a method of examining the meridian system of the body through electronic measurements. This technology today has been further refined into the Acugraph software.

Dr.Nakatani first developed the procedure of electronic evaluation of the meridian system by measuring skin conductance at special acupuncture points called yuan (source) points at the wrist and ankle. But it wasn’t until the mid-1980s, that the art of electronic evaluation for diagnostic purposes in acupuncture entered into high technology by incorporating computer enhanced evaluation. Nakatani created one of the most significant acupuncture diagnostic methods that has been re-created today with the introduction of the Acugraph. When one compares the findings of learned Asian masters of acupuncture using pulse and tongue diagnosis with the findings of acu-graphing, the meridians shown to be involved are identical. In my own experiments I discovered significant accurate cross references between electronic Acu-graphing and traditional tongue diagnoses. One of my patients had very red tongue tip, this usually indicates a pattern of excessive heat causing heart imbalance, and when I electronically Acu-graphed the patient on the source acupuncture points it showed an excessive pericardium (heart related) channel. This was indicated ón the graph examination results by a red bar with a high reading. So in this instance modern science and ancient wisdom came together and confirmed the tongue diagnosis,

Acugraph Meridian Imaging

In Acugraphing the bio-electrical energy of the body the practitioner gets a clear image of the state of the energy confirming the tongue and pulse findings with all the other information from the initial consultation intake form. The Acugraph simply gives more information and the more info that can be gleaned from the patient via the initial consultation, then the more precise the diagnosis will be. Information is vital, this is why the TCM practitioner spends so much time on the initial consultation. In Chinese medicine it is the experience and skill of the practitioner in formulating the information into a treatment  that makes the real difference to the success of the treatment.

No gadget can ever replace the hands on interactions between a TCM practitioner and patient. One piece of information alone can never give the full picture, however after considering Nakatami’s unique contribution to acupuncture it would be a great shame not to include his great discovery in the form of an Acugraph examination for the benefit of all patients and practitioners alike. This is one of the reasons that I have decided to  introduced this great technology to all of my clinics.

The Dangers of Fluoride in Drinking Water Part 1

The Dangers of Fluoride in Drinking Water Part 1

Adding Fluoride into drinking water is a uniquely American practice but for some unknown reason also a uniquely Irish one? Over 97% of Europe does not fluoridate their water. It was banned by the EU in 2006 due to a lack of toxicological data to show that it was safe for humans or the environment. It has been pumped into our water since 1964. So why are Ireland dragging their heels and way behind the rest of Europe on water safety? Ireland by its policy of water fluoridation currently contravenes thirteen EU Directives.

What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is not safe. Most of the general public, dentists and doctors alike are unaware that the fluoride in our drinking water is a dangerous chemical waste product. Fluoride IS NOT an essential nutrient!. It is a CHEMICAL WASTE! This is the shocking TRUTH!. Chemical companies are delighted to get rid of their industrial waste by having it dumped into our water supply!! Even countries with high natural fluoride levels in their water are taking measures to remove it because of the associated health problems. Why are the Irish Government blindly following the old narrative, that fluoride is good for your teeth? while ignoring the growing insurmountable scientific evidence clearly showing serious damage to bones, tissue and the neurological system. Simply because government officials and dental leaders have put so much of their credibility on the line by defending fluoridation, that to back down now would be a disaster for them, because of the huge liabilities waiting in the wings if they admit that fluoridation will cause damage to people’s health.

The fluoride in your water is known as hydrofluorosilicic acid, it is a by-product of fertiliser, aluminium and steel, production. At one time industrial fluoride used to be released into the atmosphere via large smokestack chimneys. But now filters are in the chimneys to harvest this industrial waste. What country is stupid enough to buy it AND DUMP IT INTO THE WATER SUPPLY?, have a guess which one? can you believe Ireland is doing this? Countries that have rejected water fluoridation, have experienced the very same decline in childhood dental decay as fluoridated countries, there simply is no evidence that it decreases tooth decay.  YOU are not being properly informed of what’s in your water and what the dangers are. As if this were not bad enough, fluoridation chemicals also deliver trace amounts of lead, arsenic, mercury and other contaminants into your glass of tap water. Arsenic is a known human carcinogen for which there is no safe level. This one contaminant alone could be what’s increasing the cancer rates.

The Health Risk Factors

There are over twelve hundred peer reviewed scientific articles that unequivocally demonstrate serious adverse health hazards by fluoride ingestion. Type into an internet search- “enviro.ie human toxicity”. Despite studies showing fluoride used topically in toothpaste could/ maybe help prevent tooth decay, the ingestion of it does not, and shockingly a lot is ingested through the mouth and gums, studies show that adults can absorb up to 0.5 mg of fluoride  per brushing. Fluoride is a neurotoxin, there are over 100 animal experiments showing that fluoride can damage the brain and impact learning and behavior and lower IQ by 7 points. Fluoride can make people docile. Fluoride affects thyroid function. Skeletal fluorosis (a fluoride-induced bone and joint disease that can mimic the symptoms of arthritis. In the USA the National Cancer Institute found a significantly higher rate of osteosarcoma (a bone cancer) in young men in fluoridated versus unfluoridated areas. Diseases associated with fluoride ingestion includes neurological and cardiovascular disease, type ii diabetes, osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, sarcoidosis, skeletal muscular disorders and pediodontal disease. Is it just a co-incidence that these diseases in Ireland are far above the global average? Because their sole reliance on liquids for their food intake, young children are most susceptible to fluoride poisoning.  infants consuming formula made with fluoridated water have the highest exposure to fluoride, by bodyweight, in the population, this is unaccecptable.  Check this link- http://fluoridealert.org/articles/50-reasons/  In part two next week of this article we will focus on the solutions and things you can do to start protecting yourself as soon as possible untill this chemical/drug is removed from Irish water for good. A good start at this point in time would be to stop drinking tap water asap.

The Acupuncture Treatment of Endometriosis

The Acupuncture Treatment of Endometriosis

Endometriosis has become an increasingly common health condition worldwide. One American doctor has labelled it “the career woman’s disease” because there seems to be a strong correlation between endometriosis and the increased stress levels experienced by so many workingwomen today. “Endometrial tissue occurs naturally in the endometrium – a layer of tissue lining the uterus. With endometriosis, however, this tissue “migrates” to other parts of the reproductive system, or outside of the reproductive organs altogether. The main clinical manifestation of endometriosis is a recurrent, generally cyclical, lower abdominal pain that gets progressively worse. Up to 50 percent of infertile women may have endometriosis, and some studies suggest that this oestrogen-sensitive disease may also cause infertility.

Symptoms and Signs
Endometriosis can begin with unusual menstrual pain during the period,  the menstrual pain can become severe, spreading to the vagina, anus, hips, and inner side of the thigh. A “sinking” sensation in the anus, with abdominal pain and back soreness can accompany the menstrual pain. Often, the pain can be severe enough to trigger bouts of nausea and vomiting, and the person can became desperate for relief. Usually in these severe cases most women will get referred to a gynaecologist by her doctor. A pelvic examination, magnetic resonance imaging and laparoscopy can or will confirm the diagnosis to be endometriosis. The gynaecologist may suggest a hysterectomy, or hopefully recommend Acupuncture and Chinese herbs for this condition. After a few months’ of weekly treatment with Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, endometriosis should be very well improved increasing energy and blood flow through the uterus, paving the way for pregnancy to take place. Because Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are natural forms of therapy devoid of any side effects, the improvements can sometimes be slow building over many months. If the disease improves slowly naturally following the body’s bio-rhythms’ then there is less likelihood that there will be any rebound affect after a course of treatment is complete. Usually its also good to do a maintaince course of treatment (say 6 treatments per year) after the Endometriosis has been resolved, just to keep the bodie’s energy flow at its optimal  and to prevent the re-occurance of the condition.

Surgery is often only a temporary measure, simply because endometriosis recurs in most women. Treatment with synthetic hormones will suppress the symptoms of endometriosis, but the disease itself is not cured, and symptoms will often return after discontinuing the hormone therapy. Besides, the side effects with these drugs can be quite significant.

Stress

Endometriosis also happens to be exacerbated by stress, which can also cause the disease to flare up and worsen. Indeed stress is a major factor and precursor to most diseases. As the sufferer gets more stressed the disease will simply get worse. The pain can be absolutely paralysing. This also wears down the person inducing depression, low mood and stress which then can contribute to a weakened immune system. Endometriosis causes pain, pain then causes increased stress and that can only in turn weaken the immune system even more and this cycle goes on and on unless intervention in the form of Acupuncture is instigated.

Blood Stasis and Acupuncture

In Chinese medicine, the primary pattern, or mechanism, that causes endometriosis is Blood Stasis. Blood Stasis can be caused by emotional disturbance, chronic illness, and exposure to cold temperatures, surgery, and genital infections. When the Chinese pattern of disease is Blood Stasis, the objective of the treatment is to invigorate Blood and remove stasis, using both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Acupuncture along with the Chinese herbal formula Tong Jing Wan is most frequently used for dispersing Blood Stasis. In addition to Blood Stasis, there are often other disease-causing factors, which are part of the patterns of endometriosis. Cold, Heat, Deficiency, or Excess patterns are frequently part of the mix, and are differentiated based on the clinical manifestations associated with each case of endometriosis. The timing, location, nature, and severity of pain are taken into account; along with associated symptoms. Scientific studies are suggesting that endometriosis is a neuro-immuno-endocrine related disease. Acupuncture can improve the functioning of the immune system, warm the womb and increase the flow of energy through the meridians, or energy pathways, in the body. Acupuncture can also stimulate the nervous system to release hormones, and is very effective at relieving pain. For these reasons, acupuncture is a viable and effective treatment modality for dealing with endometriosis. The use of specific acupuncture points and herbal formulas for each pattern of endometriosis can produce dramatic improvements.

EMF Dangers of Wi Fi, Smart Meters & Mobile Phones Part 2

EMF Dangers of Wi Fi, Smart Meters & Mobile Phones Part 2
Last week in Part 1 we discussed the dangers Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF’s) produced by wireless Baby Monitors and Cordless Phones, if you missed Part 1 then go to www.naturalhealthireland.com .
Most people assume that wireless technology is safe, it is not common knowledge to assume other wise, but now that you know the dangers inherent in cordless phones, baby monitors and wi fi routers, which I alerted you to in last week’s article, what steps are you going to take to safeguard you and your family’s health? Are you going to exercise the Precautionary Principle and “err on the side of caution” until more is known? Or until stricter guidelines are put in place to control this technology, indeed exercising the “ Precautionary Principle “ would in light of the mounting evidence be the sensible thing to do, especially in regard to both your own and your children’s health. Spurned on by advancing technology an un-wary public are today buying these devices at an alarming rate simply because they are convienient (no wires).
Hearing is Believing
Wireless microwave energy generally goes un-noticed, simply because this health hazard is silent, its only when you hear the effects that you realise there is an unseen, very disturbing pulsating energy at work. Have a look at my YouTube video where I use a detector to hear the pulsed radiation from a baby monitor, this will shock you! “hearing is believing” See here- http://youtu.be/0kvVD7hrSwY or google forum4change blog. Wireless technology is a real danger to the health and well being of a growing population. A lot of children’s toys and gaming machines etc are now nearly all wireless. Yes its great I hear you say!, at long last no more heaps of wires to content with, this is what makes the wireless option very convienient and attractive when considering buying a product.
Wi Fi, Smart Meters and Mobile Phones
Wireless Internet routers/modems, mobile phones and Electric Smart Meters use dangerous electromagnetic radiation; See here- http://www.iervn.com/#! Wi-Fi signals can easily penetrate concrete walls. TV and radio signals are barely strong enough to do so, that is why if you move your FM or AM radio ariel around you get a better signal. Also the FM transmitting station is many miles from your home. In comparison to this you get the Wi Fi signal anywhere in the house very strongly because the Wi Fi transmitting station (your router) is in your home!! To give you an idea; FM Radio transmitts no higher than 108 megahertz (MHz) from its transmitter many miles away, now consider that there are 1000 megahertz in a gigahertz (GHz), well lets compare these power levels ; your Wi Fi (as does cordless phones and baby monitors and smart meters) transmitts 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) thats 2,400 megahertz but not from a safe distance like the FM, but from inside your home !!! Because of demands 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi technology is now used in nearly everything these days, personal computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets, Bluetooth hands-free handsets, wireless video game consoles etc. Many countries in the world have now taken Wi Fi out of classrooms, but here in Ireland they are putting it in. Search youtube for- “wi fi in schools proven dangerous” and wi fi dangers, which is a BBC Panorama programme.
Smart Meters
Did you know your electric supplier is considering a National roll of Smart Meters to replace your current analogue meter, these smart meters will be pulsing out microwave radiation 24/7 through your home, and your neighbours home, do not consent to having one fitted. Remember they will tell you its all safe and regulated
Mobile Phones.
Smart mobile phones are becoming more and more powerful too with 4G on the way.The European Reflex Study showed that: one minute on a mobile phone creates as much DNA damage as one chest x-ray. Many people do not want an alternative to their mobile phone; they want to be able to use them for more and more purposes. The telecommunications companies encourage this and the Government benefits from increased tax revenues as a result.
Solutions
Switch your cordless phone base station and Wi Fi router off at night, you will sleep better.
When you come off your computer switch off the Wi Fi router at the mains. Get rid of cordless phones in your home altogether and go back to wired. Knock off the wireless setting on your router and use network plugs instead. Use speakerphone when talking, if not keep phone a good inch away from your ear (always). Don’t use mobile phones for long calls, use landline instead. Never use your phone or 3G in the car, the phone has to power up more to get the signal out through the steel frame of the car. Dont let the electricic company fit a digital Smart Meter, put a sign and lock on your meter box, remember you own the meter box, Google forum4change blog for details of the sign. Google “grounded and earthing” for another way of protecting yourself. ERR on the side of caution. Just remember cigarrettes and asbestos were once considered safe. Protect yourself, its up to you.

EMF Dangers of Wi Fi, Cordless Phone, Baby Monitors Part 1

So you think everyday appliances that you accept and take for granted in your home are safe? ….well think again! Dangerous Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF’s) are produced today by many items in your home.
Is your Wi-Fi safe?, is that digital wireless monitor harming your baby?, can you believe that your harmless looking DECT home cordless phone actually pulses out microwaves 24hrs a day even if its not in use? Can they affect the heart?, could they be the cause of some cancers? And could certain members of your family be more susceptible to this form of radiation than others? You will be surprised at the amount of information and scientific data, and controlled tests that point to the fact that Electro Magnetic Fields (EMF’s) produced from Radio Frequencies (RF) especially the Pulsed Microwave variety of your Wi Fi router, Digital Wireless Baby Monitor and Home Cordless Phone may be very damaging to your health. In 2011 The World Health Organisation(WHO)/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use. Read here- http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2011/pdfs/pr208_E.pdf
I have uncovered some hard hitting facts that everyone should be aware of, and how you can simply and easily protest yourself with a little bit of effort and dilligence.
Cordless Phones
Most cordless phones and baby monitors used in the home today are DECT (Digitally Enhanced Cordless Technology).These cordless phones as do baby monitors continuously emit microwave radiation at full power 24 hours a day. Cordless phones emit radiation whether they are being used or just sitting idle in their base station and they pulse out microwaves 24/7, this is actually similar to having a mobile phone mast in your home. This exposes people and babies to unnecessary microwave radiation and has been raised as a potential health concern by scientists and doctors in many countries. If you have a cordless phone and a baby monitor and a Wi Fi router all running in your home at the same time then your health and the health of your children could be seriously at risk over a period of time. In 2010, Dr. Magda Havas, Ph.D, an electro-smog and electro-sensitivity expert, published results of a ground-breaking study in the European Journal of Oncology. A cordless phone base station was used and demonstrated that wireless EMFs can adversely affect heart function and heart rhythm as well as many other symptoms. To read the study just type into google- havas heart study.
Baby Monitors
Most baby monitors are now advertised as using DECT phone technology which runs
2.4 GHz which is the same as the microwave oven frequency.
With ‘talk back’ digital baby monitors, where parents can talk back to the baby, both units continuously emit pulsing radiation, not just when the baby is making a noise or the parent is talking to them.
Babies and children are more at risk because of their thin and developing brain barriers, Hence, a child’s brain is extremely sensitive to the effects of any type of EMF radiation
Babies are more at risk because of the close proximity of the monitor to the babies head. Parents too because of the close proximity of the monitor reciever to their head at night or during the day. To inform yourself more, please do your own research, just “google” the dangers of cordless phones, baby monitors and wi fi .
As well as serious dangers to health, pulsing digital monitors seem to be far more disruptive of the infant’s sleep and state of contentment causing restlessness, irritability and crying.
Warnings
So why are there not warnings on these appliances to infom us of these dangers. Simply put: the” industry” driving all wireless technology unto the market has far too much power and money and can influence politicians and governments as well as all the NGO’s and health watchdog organisations. Also as well as that most people take it for granted that wireless technology is safe. Safe levels for microwave radiation whether it comes from a cordless phone, wireless internet router or baby monitor are all based on levels considered safe if they are not high enough to heat you or cook you. The non-thermal effects are not considered. Isn’t that absurd and irresponsible when ever there are many studies on the non-thermal effects of microwave radiation by imminent doctors, professors and scientists. But don’t panic, there are many solutions and next week in Part 2 as well as looking the dangers of Wi Fi use, and we will be looking at solutions and the many ways you can protect your self and your family from the damaging effects of EMF’s. in the meantime check some things you can do here to make yourself safe- http://wavegoodbye.info/

The Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 6

The Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 6

Welcome to this part 6 of treatments for cancer, hope you all enjoyed last weeks article on apricot kernals (laetrile), can you believe that something so natural can be so powerful?….well yes!!!  there are no chemicals or drugs made by man as powerful as one made by mother nature, every cure known to man ultimately comes from the earth. Did you know that we have living proof right here in Inishowen that wheat-grass successfully treats cancer?  After reading a recent Sunday World report on how “wheat grass” cured an Inishowen man with cancer, I just had to do an article about this wonderful plant.

What is Wheat Grass

Although wheatgrass comes from the same plant that produces the wheat grain used to make flour, wheat-grass is harvested before the plant matures and refers to the young grass before the grain is produced. The Latin botanical plant name for wheat and wheatgrass is called Triticum Aestivum, which is part of the Poaceae family of grasses. The roots and underground stems may be used in herbal remedies.Wheatgrass is without doubt a powerful healing agent – both for the body as a whole, andwhen applied to the skin.

History tells us that the grasses in general have been known to have healing properties going back several thousand years. Ann Wigmore in the 70’s cured many with terminal cancer and other chronic illnesses using freshly juiced wheatgrass. In the late 1930’s, an agricultural scientist, Dr. George Kohler and his colleagues found that cereal grasses greatly enhanced fertility, growth and the general health of laboratory animals. Wheat –grass is easily grown at home in pots, but it does take a really good juicer to properly extract all the juice. Search on youtube how to grow and juice wheat-grass, there are a lot of videos on there.

Studies into anti cancer properties of Wheat-Grass

In 2001, the National Institute of Health in the United States funded a large double blind trial of 180 individuals in Quidong, China(Egner. A. et. al.)

This province has the highest incidence of liver cancer in the world that is most often caused by an aflatoxin, a type of fungus. Some proponents of wheat-grass therapy equate chlorophyll (the component that makes wheatgrass and other plants green) with hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood, saying that wheatgrass raises the body’s oxygen levels.Using modern assay techniques, researchers were able to demonstrate a doubling of the induction period (the time taken for the cancer to develop) from twenty to forty years in participants who took a daily dose of Chlorophylls. Chlorophylls are constituents of the human diet and have been found to be effective anticarcinogens in several animal models. Read the full study here- http://www.pnas.org/content/98/25/14601.full.pdf

Astonishing results indeed, but the medical community still remains silent. Why this silence one might ask?, well as we know there is no profit in wellness, pharmacutical companies are just not interested in mother nature cures. In another study (Peryt. B. et al. 1992) it is shown that it is not just the chlorophyll that treats cancer, in this study wheatgrass extract significantly reduced the production of benzo-pyrene metabolites in rats. In other words, cell mutation was reduced causing a reduction in the likelihood of cancer developing. So wheatgrass appears to be a natural cancer prophylactic.

Wheat-Grass cures Inishowen Man!

Danny Mc Donald from Dunaff in Urris had been suffering with chronic cancer of the stomachand was told by doctors he would be “dead in a matter of weeks”.As Danny says in his own words;-I know a lot of doctors think wheatgrass doesn’t have the qualities to kill cancer, but I am living proof that it does. And although many doctors won’t admit it publicly, gradually they are coming round to see the benefits of wheatgrass.”It is over four years now since 74-year-old Danny was first diagnosed with chronic cancer of the stomach.Today Danny McDonald stands a healthy 12 stone and the cancer, which was killing him, has completly disappeared.In a recent phone conversation with Danny he tells me thousands have flocked from all over the country to his home in Urris ( some as far away as Cork) in order to get familiar with the wheat grass protocol that he uses. People have come to see for themselves at first hand a living testimony to the remarkable effects of wheat-grass.

Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 5

The Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 5

This is part 5 of the natural treatment and prevention of cancer, I bet you never thought there would be so much information and that there would be so many effective alternative treatments for cancer in existance?. If you missed the other 4 parts you can read them online at www.naturalhealthireland,com

Last week we spoke about Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and its many medicinal uses including its great effect upon cancer. Please also check out the adverse effects of taking too much bicarb., and its interactions with some drugs, see here- http://drsircus.com/medicine/sodium-bicarbonate-baking-soda/side-effects-contraindications

Apricot Kernals (bitter almonds)

This week we will examine a substance called Laetrile which is found naturally in rich quantities in apricot kernals. Apricot kernals are also commonly known as “bitter almonds”

Most people take laetrile in the form of apricot kernels. In the middle of an apricot is a hard shell. If you break open the hard shell with a “nut cracker”, pliers or hammer, you will find a small seed/kernel in the middle that looks like an almond. It is this seed that is rich in natural laetrile. Apricot kernals are also not that hard to get hold of, most health food stores will supply them, but you can easily purchase them online as well.

Laetrile

Laetrile (i.e. amygdalin or Vitamin B17) therapy is one of the most popular and best-known alternative cancer treatments. It is very simple to use and is very effective, if used in high enough doses, if the product is of high quality, and iscombined with an effective cancer diet and key supplements. All  alternative cancer treatments need to be combined by food therapy and also paying particular attention to healthy eating and exercise to increase its effectiveness. Laetrile works by targeting and killing cancer cells and building the immune system to fend off future outbreaks of cancer. It uses two different methods for killing cancer cells. It involves a strict diet (as do all cancer treatments) and several supplements. Foods that also contain laetrile include: apricot kernels, peach kernels, grape seeds, blackberries, blueberries, rasberrys, strawberries, bean sprouts, lima beans and macadamia nuts (to name but a few).

How does Laetrile kill cancer cells?

When the laetrile compound molecule comes across a cancer cell, it is broken down into two molecules of glucose, 1 molecule of hydrogen cyanide and 1 molecule of benzaldehyde. In the early days of laetrile research, it was assumed that the hydrogen cyanide molecule was the major cancer cell killing molecule, but now it is known that it is the benzaldehyde molecule that is by far the major reason the cancer cell is killed.

You have to take enough laetrile molecules, over a long enough period of time, so that enough laetrile molecules coincidently  hits all of the cancer cells first. Too much apricot kernel consumption could leak some cyanide into healthy cells. But the warning signs are early and clear. Any nausea, dizziness, or headaches indicate it`s time to slow down on the amount taken, or cut out the sugar. Having said all that an Australian mainstream newspaper the “Sydney Morning Herald”, told the story of a man, who cured himself of cancer by consuming 30 apricot kernels a day. Jill Stark opened her March 10, 2010 article with, “Paul Reid should be dead. Diagnosed with a rare, incurable lymphoma, he was given five years, seven tops, by his oncologist.” The article included a photo of a healthy Reid, smiling with a platter full of fresh foods at age 68, 13 years after his prognosis. His cancer curing protocol consisted of consuming 30 apricot kernels per day.
Despite official warnings regarding cyanide poisoning from Laetrile, Reid did not suffer cyanide poisoning from eating 30 kernels a day!

Share Information

As I always say; I would never encourage anyone with cancer not to visit their doctor or to seek medical advice, but do make them aware of the many amazing alternative treatments available, most good doctors will welcome the info. Those that don’t or wont, are simply then just agents for the pharmacutical companys, otherwise they would have your best interests at heart. I always say to anyone reading my articles to always do your own research, there are mountains of information on the internet, too much in fact for a small article such as this. The amount of info. I had to leave out is quite astonishing. Please share this info with your family and friends. Sharing this info may save many many lives.

The Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 4

The Natural Treatment and Prevention of Cancer Part 4

Last week we spoke about the Bob Beck electrifing unit and the Bob Beck protocols for treating cancer, if you missed articles 1,2 or 3 they are now up on www.naturalhealthireland.com 

I meant  to mention this last week, but in my research into the Bob Beck Protocols I discovered a very interesting piece of information about weight loss,dramatic weight loss might be explained by elimination of parasites, some of which can force your appetite to use your body as a fat “feeding lot” for their own survival. When the parasites areeliminated, by using the Bob Beck electrifying unit, the fat disappears. Apparently a person lost about 145 pounds after blood electrification who previously had struggled to lose weight for 30 years and spent thousands on pills, shots, diets, and programs which had never worked.Anyway on to this week. This week I’m going to talk about a very successful treatment for cancer that can be found in nearly every kitchen

Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate)

Bicarbonate of Soda (not to be confused with baking powder which contains aluminium) is a natural substance used in the human body within the bloodstream to regulate pH as a counterbalance to acid build up, which is critical to life. It affects the pH of cells and tissues, balances cell voltage, and increases CO2, which helps with oxygenation. Sodium Bicarbonate is a powerful medical tool that everyone would benefit by knowing more about.

Sodium Bicarbonate can be used as a first line of defence for a vast range of sickness including, cancer, flu, stomach upsets, diabetes, kidney disease and even the common cold. Sodium Bicarbonate can be used in many forms whether transdermally in a bath, orally or nebulised for lung conditions. It is so powerful in its ability to detox that it can even be used against cancer and radiation exposure. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment, but cannot survive when alkaline and acid are in a state of perfect PH balance.

Dr. Tullio Simoncini

Dr. Tullio Simoncini is a Rome based oncologist and was the first to discover Candida Albicans as a cause of cancer (malignant tumor). After years of research, he was able to develop a proprietary treatment using Sodium Bicarbonate to treat Candida Albicans related cancers. This treatment, called the “Simoncini Protocol”, has quickly gained notoriety through word of mouth by cancer patients. Dr Simoncini has successfully used baking soda to flush cancerous areas by injection or catheter. He has been able to show that 99 percent of breast and bladder cancer can heal in just six days, entirely without the use of surgery, chemo or radiation, using just a local infiltration device (such as a catheter) to deliver the sodium bicarbonate directly to the infected area!

He considers the oral use of sodium bicarbonate limited to areas of direct contact throughout the digestive tract, from mouth to anus. When asked in an interview how many cases of cancer hadhe been able to cure?
Doctor Simoncinireplied “I have treated hundreds of patients. Most of them had extremely advanced cancer, especially after having been subjected to conventional therapies. Many of them made a complete recovery and are still alive and well years after the treatment.In the cases of cancers caught early (lumps smaller than 3cm, with minimal incidence of metastasis) 90% of patients have made a recovery.
He goes on to say: many doctors agree with my methods and have used the sodium bicarbonate treatment. See the full interview with Doctor Simoncini here- http://candida-international.blogspot.ie/2007/03/is-cancer-caused-by-candida-fungus.html

There are many videos on youtube on Dr Simoncini’s work that is well worth checking out. Here is his website where he can be contacted- http://simoncini-cancer-center.com/en/home

Other uses for Bicarbonate of  Soda

Few people realise that baking soda also has potent medicinal properties and has been used as a therapeutic agent for a very long time. Taken internally, it helps maintain the pH balance in your bloodstream. This is likely the basic premise behind its recommended uses against both colds and influenza symptoms, and even cancer. On colds and flu rarely anyone who had been thoroughly alkalinised with bicarbonate of soda contracted the flu or cold virus, and those who did contract it, if alkalinised early, would invariably have only mild attacks. It works wonderfully  for acid/heartburn in the stomach. As an underarm deodorant it can be made into a paste with coconut oil and then shaped into a small ½ inch ball and rolled under the arm. There are many many other uses bicarbonate of soda so please do your own research, and try it out, you will be amazed at what this common kitchen substance can do.
