Our digestive system is connected to most, if not all of our bodily functions. For this reason, optimal digestion is vitally important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, due to the unwholesome foods we eat, the contaminated water we drink, and the polluted air we breathe, our digestive systems are loaded down with toxins, chemicals and unfriendly bacteria. Some researchers have even suggested that digestive disorders are the principle underlying cause of many unexplained symptoms and diseases. It is therefore easy to see the importance of the digestive system and doing everything we can to support it. Here are 5 easily ways to improve digestion and assimilation naturally.

Home Remedies for Wounds

Home Remedies for Wounds

Although cuts and wounds aren’t particularly threatening in nature, they can be quite painful as well as a nuisance.

However, infections could result from cuts, so many individuals turn to some kind of pharmaceutical solution to clean the laceration because that is truly the only solution they know of. Along with nearly all other issues, though, cleaning and hastening the healing process of a cut or wound can be done with numerous natural solutions – not the all too common Neosporin.

Being recognized as one of nature’s mighty superfoods, honey has long been utilized for its antibacterial properties. One study published in the journal Microbiology found that honey prevented a type of streptococcus pyogenes from inhibiting the healing of wounds.

Around two years ago, John Patterson took to the streets in a friend’s armored personnel carrier (APC) out of sheer desperation and frustration over the inaction of Telstra, the Australian telecommunication company which he had worked for.

Patterson drove the tank-like vehicle into the cell phone transmitters, destroying some $6 million worth of equipment and landing himself a two year long prison sentence.

While this jail time was far from enjoyable, Patterson has not given up his quest to fight back against the negative health effects of electromagnetic radiation – like that which is radiated en masse by cell phone towers – and his struggle to bring the dangers to the public’s attention.

“I wasn’t thinking clearly, I made some rash decisions which I really regret,” Patterson said. “But it was out of sheer frustration?” the interviewer asked, to which he responded, “Yeah.”

Global Activism is Taking Down the Poisonous Corporate Food Industry

By Anthony Gucciardi

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The foundation of the international food industry, monopolized by large corporations that hold zero regard for your health, is cracking. As more and more individuals begin to realize that they are eating their way to disease through the consumption of these products, they become outraged at the companies peddling their latest toxic food product. The result? Companies are now being forced to either answer to the consumer demands (removing the toxic substances from the food supply and adapting legitimate environmental manufacturing practices) , or lose their customers.

Savoury yeast is high in vitamins, protein, fiber, and minerals. It is a good source of B-complex vitamins because it includes thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin, (B3), pyridoxine (B6), and also cyanocobalamin (B12). It also contains beta-glucans, which reduce blood lipid levels, complex carbohydrates, folic acid, and glutathione, an antioxidant that’s important for cellular defense mechanisms. Savoury yeast is in the same family as edible mushrooms. It has been commercially harvested for over 100 years.

Savoury yeast is also all-natural, sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free. With a slightly “cheesy” flavour our kids like to sprinkle it on popcorn, or avocado and toast and when we are not looking, they will eat it by the spoonful straight out of the bag! We also mix it into gravies and sauces as well as many of our main meal recipes like the vegie sausage roll below.

You don’t need to resort to harmful cholesterol lowering pharmaceuticals like statin drugs in order to reduce your cholesterol. In fact, something as simple as fruit extracts have been shown to not only lower cholesterol, but provide numerous other health benefits as well.

Examining the effects of bergamot orange extract, a fruit grown in the Mediterranean, researchers studied the effects of the fruit on 200 patients with high levels of blood fats. Participants who ingested 100mg doses of the extract before meals saw a reduction in ‘bad ‘ LDL cholesterol by 39 percent and blood sugars by 22 percent, while ‘good’ HDL cholesterol levels escalated by 41 percent. Lead researcher Dr. Vincenzo Mollace, Professor at the University of Cantanzaro said:

Carcinogenic Chemicals Polluting Water Supply Through Fracking

Carcinogenic Chemicals Polluting Water Supply Through Fracking

By Anthony Gucciardi

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Fracking has been known to be cause environmental and health damage. Doctors have begun warning the United States government along with gas and oil producers of the dangers revolving around fracking, with many on a quest to end fracking completely.

Fracking, or the act of pumping water and chemicals underground in order to facilitate the flow of oil or gas, is resulting in contaminated and polluted groundwater. Environmentalists and activists alike have long been trying to force oil and gas companies to disclose which chemicals are being used for their drilling and fracking process, but efforts have been less than successful. A 2011 congressional report states that many of the chemicals being used in the fracking process do pose a health risk, and so individuals should know exactly what chemicals are being used. Another report released by the Food & Water Watch states that the process of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is to become a global and environmental health threat.

The Positive Health Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

The Positive Health Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

By Jordan & Kyla Miller

Everybody has five major paths of elimination; the colon, kidneys, liver, lungs, and skin. Of these, our skin is the largest elimination organ, which is sometimes referred to as the “third kidney” (the second being our lungs).

In fact, up to a third of all body impurities are excreted through the skin. It releases a pound of waste each day and will be the first organ to show symptoms of imbalance or toxicity. If your skin cannot efficiently release toxins, you may experience rashes, acne, hives, itchiness, body odour, or even eczema and psoriasis.

Dry skin brushing is an important therapy you can add to your detox program. Daily dry friction brushing is far more cleansing and eliminates more waste material than any soap could, and of added benefit, the skin is not robbed of its natural oils needed to keep it from becoming too dry. Dry skin brushing tones the skin, improves circulation, and aids in relieving skin conditions.

It is well known that Monsanto’s GMO crops provide a very real threat to both public health and the environment as a whole, but the depth of Monsanto’s corruption is often a less covered topic. It has been revealed by WikiLeaks that Monsanto not only has key figureheads stationed in powerful government positions inside the United States, but also has many — if not all — U.S. diplomats on their payroll. In the bombshell report, the leaked cables reveal that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto. Furthermore, Monsanto also has international titans pushing their agenda to maximize profits and increase the spread of genetically modified food.

The following recipe is nutritionally dense, very rich and satisfying.

Coconut oil is one of the ingredients used which has very beneficial saturated fats. The difference between the saturated fats in meat and that in coconut is that coconut is a medium-chain saturated fatty acid as opposed to long-chain fats. Medium-chain saturates digest easily. These fatty acids do not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats. Instead, they are sent directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into energy. Medium-chain fatty acids also speed up the body’s metabolism, burning more calories and promoting weight loss.

As concerns over the consumption of genetically modified foods continue to grow internationally, legislation is increasingly being introduced to mandate the labeling of products containing genetically modified ingredients. With thousands — if not millions — of products lining the grocery store shelves containing at least some genetically modified organisms (GMOs), consumers are demanding action. A total of 18 states are now examining laws that seek to explicitly label products containing GMOs.

Sorry Bill Gates: GMO Crops Proven to be Ineffective at Fighting World Hunger

Monsanto shareholder Bill Gates has argued that GMOs are the solution to world hunger, going as far as to say that they are actually needed to fight worldwide starvation. Unfortunately for Gates, who back in 2010 bought 500,000 shares of the company he is now promoting in mainstream media as the solution to the world’s problems, a team of 900 scientists have found that GMO crops are actually not effective at fighting world hunger. In fact, the massive team found that Monsanto’s seeds, which have lead to thousands of farmer suicides due to excessive costs and failure to yield crops, were outperformed by traditional “agro-ecological” farming practices.
