10 Common Nutrition Myths and Misconceptions

15th June 2013

The most common misconception about nutrition is that we actually know a lot about nutrition.

Fact: no-one studies healthy nutrition and diet in a serious, scientific fashion. We have lots of theories, lots of errors, lots of contradictions, but little true scientific testing in search of truth.

Virtually all of the scientific research into nutrition is ‘illness based’, not healthiness based. This bias creates a lot of knowledge about specific diseases but little understanding of health. When we research ‘illness’, we search for specific causes and specific cures.

Did you ever wonder why everything seems to be bad for you, and almost everything seems to be good for you as well? This is a result of researching illness and ignoring healthiness. Illnesses are ‘specific’. Healthiness is general. Lessons learned by studying illness are poor teachers when trying to attain healthiness.

A Disconnected Humanity: The Age of Pineal Suppression

By Michael Roads

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

We live in an age of pineal suppression. We imbibe and ingest substances that tend to calcify the rice-grain-sized pineal gland, and on a global scale we have become subservient to the various systems of government. We are continually subjected to a number of controls all designed to disempower us. As we become ever more reliant on ‘the system’ we become increasingly less self-reliant.

As we become less self-reliant so also our relationship with the world around us is reduced and diminished. This, in turn, leads toward a gradual atrophy of the pineal. Nor does it end here.

We live in a world where over a hundred million people in the Western World take anti-depressants on a daily basis. Why? What is wrong with us?

A Scientific Theory of Illness

10th June 2013

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

If a super-intelligent alien was to visit our planet and search for a scientific theory of illness, she might conclude the our prevailing theory consists of “sell the drugs” and “damn the consequences”.

She might also know that the scientific theory of illness consists of:

1. Illness Theory #1: Every illness has a cause.

2. Definition: a PRIMARY or SIMPLE ILLNESS is an illness that has a single cause. A non-primary illness is an illness with more than one cause.

3. Definition: an UNHEALTHINESS is an imbalance (a deficiency or an excess) in healthiness that is not severe enough to be classified as an illness.

4. Definition: Healthiness is the opposite of unhealthiness. When healthiness increases, unhealthiness decreases. When unhealthiness increases, healthiness decreases.

Foreword by WUW Co-Founder Andy Whiteley:

For decades, educator, author and activist Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri has been writing about the links between exposure to invisible environmental toxins and dramatic increases in illness, and has long stood at the forefront of the public chemtrails debate.

In August 2012, Dr. Perlingieri was a key speaker at the first U.S. Chemtrails Conference, held in Los Angeles. This landmark 3-day event, “Consciousness Beyond Chemtrails“, featured her insightful lecture “The Assault on Our Health – Environmental Illness and Aerosol Pollution – Connecting the Dots” as well as special guest speakers Roseanne Barr, author & activist William Thomas, Former Congresswoman and Green Party US Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney, and the premier of Michael J. Murphy’s revealing documentary “Why In The World Are They Spraying?

The “Alternative Medicines” Myth

By Tracy Kolenchuk

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The world seems to be divided on medicines… There are the medicines your doctor recommends, and ‘alternative’ medicines. Doctors typically recommend ‘patent’ medicines (although they might not use that name). Some doctors promote ‘natural medicines’, others prefer ‘Chinese medicines’, others like ‘traditional’ medicines. It seems there are many different types of medicine.

Even the FDA is roped into this argument, trying to define alternative medicines in a ‘draft guidance’ on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products and their Regulation by the Food and Drug Administration.

The draft was crated in 2006. But it is still a draft 7 years later. Why? I believe it’s still a draft because there is no legitimate way for the FDA to discriminate between what they call “conventional” and what they call “alternative” medicines. It’s even more of a problem for them when some medicines jump back and forth across the gap. Vitamin C, for example, is a conventional medicine when a doctor prescribes it for scurvy, but when he recommends it to prevent colds, it’s an alternative medicine.

Just what are ‘alternative’ medicines anyway?

Chemtrails & Pollution Assault: Support Your Immune System

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The on-going siege to which we are all subjected, 24/7/365, is unprecedented in our history. Yet, it is difficult for people to realize and “connect the dots” because: (1) so much of it is invisible and off our radar; (2) mainstream media is corporate-controlled disinformation; and (3) most Western physicians have not had any training in environmental medicine.

It is, therefore, extremely important for all of us to re-evaluate what we think we know, or what we’ve been taught in school. We do have choices. We always have the opportunity to become more well-informed. Given the massive environmental pollution and harm to which we are all exposed constantly, it is now URGENT for us to re-think our daily routines and what products we use and what foods we eat.

One of the great benefits of alternative medicine is that it is based on ancient traditions that have worked for thousands of years. None of this is based on harm and/or greed. It is based upon a holistic approach to healing. Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), homeopathics, and indigenous herbal medicine all do work.

Why Is OBESITY Associated With So Many Diseases?

By Tracy Kolenchuk

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

We are constantly reminded that obesity(*) is associated with many different diseases, from high blood pressure and heart disease, from cancer and diabetes, to ulcers, skin infections, gallstones, gastritis, gingivitis, glaucoma, and gout – to name just a few.

Why is obesity associated with so many diseases?

Every disease is caused by one or more deficiencies or excesses. Every disease that is associated with obesity has a cause. Obesity is NOT the cause.

Is obesity a disease? According to Scott Kahan MD, writing for the Huffington Post, it is a disease. Scott bases his article on conventional wisdom. Unfortunately, his stated cause of obesity, “consumption of more calories than are “burned off” by movement and metabolism” is not just simplistic, it is simply wrong.

Many expects do not classify obesity as a disease. Wiki notes that obesity is associated with many diseases, but does not call it a disease – at this time (Wiki is subject to change over time). Wiki gets the cause wrong as well, but is a bit more careful, saying “At an individual level, a combination of excessive food energy intake and a lack of physical activity is thought to explain most cases of obesity“.

Facing Your Fears

By Susan Harper Todd

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

When I found myself a widow at the age of 39 it was a real shock. My feeling of security had vanished overnight. Not only had I lost my husband, but that job I had created for myself had suddenly disappeared overnight too. I was no longer a wife. I was a widow. And I was out of a job. And with it had gone the job security – which was my husband and the life I had made for myself with him. My identity had been ‘his wife’. Now I had another label. ‘His widow’!

So many women live their lives in the shadow of a man, and I have been one of them. I had forgotten who I was and had became part of my husband. My identity had become merged with his. And so had my life. It had never really occurred to me that I could have one of my own!

But then suddenly life was thrust in my face. I was suddenly on my own. Not out of choice, but there it was laid out in front of me. Life. My whole life waiting for me. It was like a blank canvas to do what I wanted with. It sounds wonderful, but I was absolutely terrified! I had never really been on my own. I had always had a boyfriend, or a husband. Someone to support me, to advise me, telling me what I should do, what I shouldn’t do. I wasn’t used to thinking for myself, having to make all the decisions. Decisions which would affect my life. Big decisions, such as where did I want to live? What was I going to do? Who was I going to be?

Generic Cancer (Part 4): The End of the “War” on Cancer…. It’s Time to Make Peace

16th May 2013

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

There is no war on cancer.

There is a war on cancer patients. More victims are dying every year. Even if your doctor issues a death sentence “you have three months to live”, you cannot choose your method of execution. You can only choose to wait, or to accept the treatments your doctor is allowed to use. This is a war on all cancer patients, not just generic cancer patients (who don’t usually die from their cancer). But it does affect generic cancer patients as well. Even if your cancer is not likely to kill you, your treatment choices are limited to those allowed by the so called “cancer war”.

There is a war on cancer doctors. They are not allowed to offer or recommend a non-standard treatment, even one they would choose for themselves or their family. They are not allowed to investigate alternatives. They are not allowed to speak their mind. Oh, they are free to speak about politics, and religion, but not about medicine – not when doctoring a cancer patient.

There is a war on cancer treatments. Many of them are illegal to make, to sell, and even illegal to give away. Information about them, their successes and failures is not published in medical journals.

Generic Cancer (Part 3): Love Your Cancer – Love It To Health!

12th May 2013

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

In the book: “Love Your Disease: It’s Keeping You Healthy”, John Harrison, MD explains that disease is both self-created and self-cured.

”To cure ourselves we need to take back the responsibility of loving and caring for our [selves]… from whomever we have entrusted the task.”

John explains that in many cases, our disease arises from activities that are meant to be and are in some ways actually healthy.

We each have unique healthy activities, which change over time through drift or deliberate actions. Our healthiness, our unhealthiness and our disease arise – for the most part – from our choices and our actions.

What about generic cancer?

Finding Freedom In A Crazy World

11th May 2013

By Michael Roads

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The world isn’t crazy… and freedom is within! But, I have to confess, it sure looks that way! In fact, when I look through the eyes of illusion I see a world that is totally insane. Crazy doesn’t get close!

So, what to do? Do we relate to the illusions of life, and try to get a feeling for what is happening and try to understand, or do we pull back from illusion and learn to see ‘what is’ through the eyes of Truth? Just for a moment, let’s look at the illusions.

Physically, the people of the world have never been so sick, and this in a time when, on some levels, there has never been a greater opportunity for really healthy living. I have no doubt about the reason for this. Over the past few centuries, we, the people of most countries have been gradually cajoled into releasing personal responsibility for our health. During the 20th century most people finally abdicated from any sense of, “this is my body, this is my health, I am fully responsible for it.”
