Repressing The Real You Makes You Sick (For Real)

Repressing The Real You Makes You Sick (For Real)

I write a lot about authenticity, being unapologetically YOU, and letting your freak flag fly. In my TEDx talk (see below), I spoke about the importance of tapping into your Inner Pilot Light and living in alignment with what’s true for you as a means of both preventative medicine and medical treatment. And in my book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself, I make the assertion that caring for your body is the least important part of your health and that expressing your true self in all aspects of your life is the most important part.

But you might not believe me. How can authenticity and disease be linked?

As research for my next book, I’m reading the book Consciousness & Healing. In a chapter co-written by the phenomenal Candace Pert, a study was referenced that blew me away.

Exposed: CDC Corruption, Link Between MMR Vaccine and Autism

Exposed: CDC Corruption, Link Between MMR Vaccine and Autism

Hotly debated for decades, the question of whether or not vaccines are associated with a sharp rise in autism has divided parents, physicians and scientists around the globe.

“Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe” tackles this highly contentious topic through interviews with a range of experts in the field, along with parents who feel their children have been injured by vaccines. However, the main focus of the film concerns a CDC whistleblower who claims the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention destroyed documents regarding a study on the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine and its association with autism. Considered the most controversial documentary in America, the film attracted significant media attention when it was “de-selected” from the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. For many, it’s a clear case of censorship.

“We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art and truth.” ~ Dr. Andrew Wakefield and Del Bigtree, Washington Post

Turmeric Produces ‘Remarkable’ Recovery in Alzheimer’s Patients

Turmeric Produces ‘Remarkable’ Recovery in Alzheimer’s Patients

Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in the world. A recent study on patients with AD found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in ‘remarkable improvements.’

Alzheimer’s Disease: A Disturbingly Common Modern Rite of Passage

A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), sadly, has become a rite of passage in so-called developed countries. AD is considered the most common form of dementia, which is defined as a serious loss of cognitive function in previously unimpaired persons, beyond what is expected from normal aging.

An Interview With Dr. Andrew Wakefield: Why We Need Safe Vaccines Immediately — and How to Make it Happen

An Interview With Dr. Andrew Wakefield: Why We Need Safe Vaccines Immediately — and How to Make it Happen

The question of vaccination has polarized parents across the U.S. and beyond for years. In one arena, parents feel it’s an absolute necessity to have children vaccinated, for the benefit of public good in stopping preventable diseases. These parents typically support the idea of mandatory vaccinations for all children. On the opposite side, you have parents who either care for their vaccine injured child or, through research, have serious reservations about vaccine safety. Adding to the complexity of the issue, many have lost faith in governmental health organizations to objectively inform the public on vaccine policy, benefits and side-effects, without conflicts of interest.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield is at the forefront of the debate after he received international media attention over his 1998 Lancet paper, which found a possible correlation between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine, inflammatory bowel disease and autism. He’s also the director of a new documentary, Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.

Dr. Wakefield joins Wake Up World to discuss what he believes needs to happen in order for vaccines to be rendered safe — and to restore public faith in vaccination science.

Neurosurgeon Reveals Radiation from Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and Cell Phones Cause the Blood-Brain Barrier to Leak

Neurosurgeon Reveals Radiation from Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and Cell Phones Cause the Blood-Brain Barrier to Leak

Dr. Leif Salford is a Neurosurgeon at Sweden’s Lund University Hospital, and a Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery at Lund University. Since 1988 Dr. Salford and his colleagues have conducted many studies on radio frequency radiation and its effects on the brain, exposing over 1,600 experimental animals to ‘low-level’ radiation.

Their results over time have been both consistent and worrisome: Exposure to radiation, including that from cell phones and wi-fi, causes leakage in the blood-brain barrier — the brain’s first line of defense against infections and toxic chemicals. Some of the most concerning conclusions result from the fact that even the weakest exposure levels to wireless radiation caused the greatest effect in causing the blood brain barrier to leak.

Learning to Live (Die) with Your Disease

Learning to Live (Die) with Your Disease

Have you heard the latest ‘medical wisdom’? It’s become a mantra for chronic diseases, from arthritis, to diabetes, to depression to dementia. “Learn to live with your disease.” But it’s a lie. What is really being said is “Accept the fact that you are going to die with your disease.” Learn to die with your disease.

There are no cures for chronic disease. Modern medicine has abandoned cures. There are lots of reasons why cures are problematic, but it’s not what you think. It’s easy to imagine that drug manufacturers want to sell us drugs, not cures, because drugs that cure don’t sell much – they work themselves out of business cure. The best selling drugs are those that don’t cure. But it’s not so simple…

The truth can only be found in opposites. What’s the opposite of ‘learn to live (die) with your disease’? Cure your disease. But modern medicine has a few simple problems. Most medicines don’t cure any disease. Most diseases simply cannot be cured by medicines. Not only that, ‘cured’ is simply not defined for most illnesses – especially those that are easily and often cured by health, like the common cold, measles, and influenza.

The Doctor Behind Autism MMR Vaccine Controversy Speaks Out

The Doctor Behind Autism MMR Vaccine Controversy Speaks Out

Dr. Andrew Wakefield is largely known for the firestorm created by his 1998 Lancet paper, which found evidence of a possible association between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine, inflammatory bowel disease and autism. Critics of Dr. Wakefield are quick to point out the paper was ultimately retracted by the journal and that he was stripped of his medical license by the General Medical Council (GMC). Some classify him as a fraud and unethical researcher, who has put countless children in danger because parents now question the safety of vaccines. And yet, others believe “he is a brilliant and courageous scientist, a compassionate physician beloved by his patients, and a champion for families with autism and vaccine injury.”

In a world where the media bows to corporate masters, and the pharmaceutical industry wields incredible power over both public and governmental opinion, the truth isn’t always easy to discern. And the controversy surrounding Dr. Wakefield is no exception…

Shit Happens, Easily – Or Does It?

It may come as a surprise: your intestines play a vital role in your good health. If something’s amiss there, you’ll know it. Sometimes malfunction expresses as mere inconvenience, other times it points to severe imbalance or illness. Our gut is central to our wellbeing and may well be the most underrated and underappreciated organ of our body.

Let’s change that by understanding its function and service to us. Every day, your gut serves you. No matter what you offer it. Every day it turns muffins, coffee, pasta, vegetables, cake, bread, fast food and everything else into molecules we then use to generate energy and to build our own structure.

Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances

Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances

According to the FDA’s legal definition, a drug is anything that “diagnoses, cures, mitigates, treats, or prevents a disease.” The problem with this definition is that there are numerous substances, as readily available and benign as found on our spice racks, which have been proven by countless millennia of human experience to mitigate, prevent and in some cases cure disease, and which cannot be called drugs according to the FDA.

How can this be? Well, the FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease. The FDA’s legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden.

Conscious Eating for Star Souls

Conscious Eating for Star Souls

I must admit that, like many of us, I long to shake off the limitations and restrictions of having a physical body. I yearn to fly free in the higher densities, dancing and twirling as an expression of the boundless soul that I am.

When I woke up, I began to feel this freedom in my everyday life, every time I closed my eyes and let go. The contrast between unleashing my soul and squeezing it back into my dense, physical body was a total mismatch. I just couldn’t squash my soul back in! So, I immediately embarked upon a journey to find a way that my soul could thrive whilst still having a physical body…

Eating Consciously has the power to reconnect us to the Universal Flow.

Apprehension, Detention and Forced Vaccination: The CDC’s Quarantine Proposal for Suspicion of Infection

You’ve had this dry cough for a couple of days but are otherwise feeling ready for your much-awaited annual ski trip to Utah. On the security line, an officer signals for you to come with him. Not knowing why you’re being selected out of the crowd, you follow, only to learn that you meet the criteria for quarantine. Sound like science fiction?

In what appears to be an unprecedented power grab, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) just issued a proposed amendment to its domestic and foreign quarantine regulations giving itself the power to legally apprehend, detain (isolate or quarantine), and treat (including vaccinate) anyone simply for suspicion of being infected by a communicable agent.

Depression? Anxiety? Here are 3 Important Nutrients That Will Improve Your Mental Health

Depression? Anxiety? Here are 3 Important Nutrients That Will Improve Your Mental Health

Guest writer for Wake Up World

When I fell into a deep depression in 2010, I felt like I would never be able to escape it. Doctors made it seem that antidepressants and anxiety medications were my only options. That was it. I was left in the dark. I thought I had no other options and nowhere to turn, so I resorted to pharmaceuticals — which ultimately did not help.

Since then, I’ve travelled down a road of intense research and self-experimentation. I found solutions that weren’t conventional and mainstream, and I witnessed significant improvements in my mental health. I’ve learned many things along the way, and most importantly, I’ve learned that you don’t need drugs, the medical system or a doctor to overcome depression, anxiety and mental disturbance. What you need is to tap into the magnificent healing potential of your body — and, not surprisingly, nutrition plays a huge role in that healing process.
