ipad-digestion-imageAre you one of the sixty-percent of Americans afflicted with at least one symptom of digestive dysfunction?

Take your pick: gas, bloating, heartburn, abdominal pain, candida, constipation, diarrhea — the statistics say that more than likely you are experiencing one or more of them, right now, at this very moment.

Living with digestive problems has become the new normal. Typically, they begin as minor complaints — a little indigestion here and there, the occasional tummy ache or bout of heartburn.

Watch the Digestion Sessions – free lectures.

Sooner or later, what was once a minor annoyance becomes something that can literally take over your life. This usually happens for two reasons — embarrassment and ignorance.

Let me explain. Who likes to talk about their digestive problems? What happens in the bathroom is a private matter, right? So you keep it to yourself and hope it goes away. But it doesn’t.

And that’s when you find yourself in the doctor’s office, finally revealing every detail of what you’ve been going through for months, maybe years.

At some point during this cathartic act of courage you realize that you’ve used up all of the 12 minutes of your allotted appointment time and suddenly find yourself in the pharmacy with a prescription for a drug that comes with two pages of side effects.

No exam. No testing. No investigation whatsoever into what may be causing your symptoms. Just a guess, and a pill.

What now?

THAT is the very question hundreds of millions of people worldwide are asking about their digestive problems.
 
Today, we come with some answers. Current medical practice has fallen 10+ years behind the latest research. Decades will pass before your doctor recommends what most recent research is discovering.

Chances are, your doc is unaware of the growing number of research studies demonstrating these alarming findings:
  •  The toxicity of persistent constipation may cause common, everyday symptoms like fatigue, attention deficit, and brain fog.
  •  Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis are almost always rooted in digestive dysfunction.
  •  The inflammation from gut dysfunction can spread throughout the body, causing inflammation in the brain, joints, and other important organs.
By the way, inflammation in the gut may also shut down your body’s ability to burn fat. Not good.

Most doctors are either unaware of this information and are too busy to learn. Meanwhile, people like you are paying the price in unnecessary suffering and medical bills.

You can put a stop to it. Now.

Sean Croxton of Underground Wellness — a real life health crusader —  put together a FREE online event called The Digestion Sessions, featuring 25 on-camera expert interviews and gut-healing cooking classes on all things digestion — so you can get the answers you’ve been looking for.

if-not-nowIf you are in Oregon or in Colorado, or know people in the two states, please get involved: On November 4, two mandatory GMO food labeling ballot initiatives: Measure 92 in Oregon and Initiative 105 in Colorado will be decided.

It is no exaggeration to say that these two ballot initiatives will determine the fate of food in America.

Despite the fact that the Gene Giants (Monsanto Dupont, Dow, Syngenta, BASF, and Bayer), backed by the world’s largest junk food manufactures (Coca Cola, Pepsi, Kraft, General Mills, Kellogg’s), have spent over $30 million to mislead and confuse voters in these two states, latest indications are that voters in at least one state, Oregon, will vote for mandatory labeling, while voters in Colorado (where the Yes on GMO labeling forces have been outspent 25-to-1) may still pull off the most amazing longshot victory of 2014.

What is important to understand is that a victory in either of these two frontline states will have a profound impact.

Since genetically engineered (GE) crops and foods were forced onto the market in the 1990s by Monsanto and the FDA, with no safety testing and no labels required, aware consumers have been trying to either ban or to require mandatory labeling of these uninvited “guests”.

This unprecedented national grassroots movement that has persevered for over two decades, despite hundreds of millions of dollars spent by the GMO and junk food industries to buy off federal and state lawmakers and regulatory agencies.

America’s contemporary food fight is not just a battle for health and sustainability, but a fundamental struggle over whether we and our children will live in a Democracy or a Corporatist State.

For many, battling mental illness involves a harsh regimen of pills, oftentimes a cocktail of psychotropic drugs. Unfortunately, these regimens treat the symptoms of an illness, rather than the root causes. Even worse, psychotropic drugs each come with their own line of side effects, some of which can exacerbate the illness or be life-threatening.

An alarming 1 in 10 individuals are on prescription psychoactive drugs for any number of conditions. But is becoming dependent on harmful prescription medications the right mode of treatment?

Rather than treating the symptoms of a condition, we should aim to restore the body’s balance and help it cope with the industrial environment we live in. For individuals battling mental illness, there is more to life than just popping pills and coping with harsh side effects. Learn more about how psychoactive drugs are harming the U.S. population and what solutions we have to combat mental illness.

Watch this great video from Vice News, my favorite news channel – it explains the situation in Liberia rather well. Ebola is apparently a natural consequence of local food handling practices, and we can expect it, or some other virus, to come out of the tropical forest. You may think that it is a new thing, but it is not.

Here is a lovely summary of Ebola’s history on the Smithsonian website. Interestingly, they tell you that it is incurable, directly contradicting our own government’s research:

Ebola was first identified in Zaire (now Congo) in 1976, near the Congo River tributary that gave the virus its name. It has been terrifying and mystifying the world ever since. Ebola is incurable, of unknown origin and highly infectious, and the symptoms are not pretty. When Ebola invades a human being, it incubates for a period of seven to ten days on average, then explodes with catastrophic force. Infected cells begin producing massive amounts of cytokine, tiny protein molecules that are extensively used in intercellular communication.

In 2002 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) published a report titled “Broad Spectrum Antiviral Effectiveness of Humates”. The NIH studied humic acid’s virus-fighting properties for viral diseases such as gastroenteritis, influenza, herpes, chicken pox, mononucleosis and hemorrhaging fevers caused by the Ebola and Hanta viruses. Results showed that humic acid, when consumed before the virus invaded the body, was effective in preventing disease. Tests performed against multiple virus types further confirmed humic acid’s broad anti-viral properties. Toxicity tests showed that humic acid bound itself to human cells but was not itself toxic, nor did it inhibit or interfere with cell development or reproduction. In other words, it is safe to ingest in even large doses, and it is very lethal to most viral infections.

Their conclusion:

Humates are exhibiting effects, both as a preventative and a curative, for a broad range of viruses. Both the synthetic humate and well as the natural are demonstrating good effectiveness and in some case, exceeding the drugs of choice.

You can search on Humates on NIH, you will find many reports from studies done to research how humates interact with viruses.

My conclusion is that if you are going to be in harm’s way, you need to be taking the humic acid prophylactically. Meaning that you should make it part of your daily routine. Not just because of the latest threat from Ebola, but for the convenience of being protected from the infection by the common flu, or the more dangerous N-this-H-that bird-to-pig-to-human virus.

It would be very prudent to take some humic concentrate every day. For emergency, also have on hand Body Biotics to populate your digestive tract with friendly microbes, and also those that attack the not-friendly microbes – it is a time-tested formula that does not require refrigeration, and stays at full potency for years.

For real trouble, add the Aerobic O7, that will wipe out every invading microbe – it is a fast-acting oxidating agent that is activated by the acid in your stomach. Once active, it releases oxygen that wipes out unfriendly microbes.

Smartphone Flashlight App sends your private data

Do you care if some agency in China, India or Russia knows everything about your online life? Apparently the ever-so-popular Free Application is not all that innocent. It shares your location, your contacts, and many other details from your smart phone. If you have it installed, beware.

Watch this 5 minute video that explains it very clearly. If you don’t want to have all your private data shared, find an app that just turns on the light, and does not send every personal detail … Apparently the good ones are only 150kB in size, not the 2MB of the monsters that pull your pants down (so to speak) for the whole world to see.

and another thing:
