IN THE NEWS: WHEN IS A HEALTH FOOD NOT A HEALTH FOOD Most commercial yogurts are chock-full of sugar, processed fructose (high fructose corn syrup), and/or artificial sweeteners and flavors, which nourish disease causing microbes in your gut. Healthy microbes are not only important for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, these bacteria also help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals, and even aid in the elimination of toxins. Recent research suggests yogurt containing Lactobacillus rhamenosus can help protect children and pregnant women against heavy metal poisoning. Your absolute best bet, when it comes to yogurt, is to make your own using a starter culture and raw, organic grass fed milk. However, there are high-quality USDA 100% organic yogurts on the market.

WELLNESS: BLACK SALVE AND BREAST CANCER The use of black salve is sometimes referred to as botanical surgery because of this extraordinary ability to purge solid tumors and skin cancers from the body. Black salve is a thick paste which is made from various Native American herbs, with the main herbal component being bloodroot. The salve is used by applying a small amount over the area of diagnosed or suspected malignancy, which then triggers an immune system response to the neoplastic (cancerous) tissue as the cancer finally is recognized by the immune system. Although it is possible that healthy tissue may also become reddened and irritated when the black salve is applied, it is only cancerous tissue that will form an eschar (piece of dead tissue that is cast off from the surface of the skin). Once recognized, the immune system forces the body to expel the tumor by bringing it to the surface until this completely emerges and detaches itself from the skin (this is the eschar). For more information and videos Google black salve. http://youtu.be/_GOoB-C6EPE
CONDITION OF THE WEEK: COLDS AND FLUES since research studies have shown the flu shot to be mostly ineffective and dangerous what is one to do to prevent colds and flues? Regular chiropractic adjustments increase a person’s immunity by 200% so that should be step one. When the heaters come on in the wintertime and the air dries out so does your mucous membranes in your sinuses and lungs. Keeping the humidity above 40% step two. Nutrients like A&D and vitamin C will improve immunity. Exercise, sleep and detoxification rounds out the perfect defense against colds and flues. As Smokey the Bear has said: only you can prevent colds and flues, take care of yourself this winter.
