Seeking a Low-Cost Solution to Cardiovascular Troubles? Hibiscus May Be the Answer

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

If you have traveled to Mexico then chances are that you’ve seen the vibrant, scarlet-hued herbal tea known as hibiscus. Commonly referred to as “sour drink” in Iran, hibiscus not only is a refreshingly tart brew but also has been used worldwide as an effective medicinal beverage. Rich in vitamin C, alkaloids and bioflavonoids, this bright-red elixir is traditionally used for supporting respiratory and cardiovascular health, lowering blood pressure, maintaining fluid balance and alleviating insomnia.

And now, contemporary research has validated the herb as a health-promoting tonic in a variety of areas.

Eugenics – Selective Breeding of the Human Herd

By Sergey Baranov

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The Hippocratic Oath written in the 5th century BC in ancient Greece was an oath historically taken by all healthcare practitioners swearing to practice medicine honestly. This oath was meant to encourage integrity among doctors, and ensure the minimization of negative effects their work might have on people. In essence, such an oath would advance moral and ethical thinking and ensure safety of the patient.

Unfortunately, in today’s world, the oath to uphold the ethical standards is taken rather lightly, if taken at all. It has been estimated that only 50% of the British physicians and other healthcare professionals are taking the Hippocratic Oath. Deviation from this ancient tradition in the medical profession has cost countless lives.[1]

Truly Healing From Cancer and Preventing It Altogether

By Katrin Geist

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Medicine as it should be

I came across the excellent documentary below – Truly Heal From Cancer – and thought to write an article around it. It’s a great resource for people currently experiencing cancer and seeking effective ways to help themselves, and everyone interested in simple preventive measures that go a long way. The MDs and clinics featured (see contacts in references section below) offer some great therapies, using contemporary medical wisdom at its best. I would happily visit these doctors, as they practice a medicine much to my liking: as non-invasive as possible, addressing causes of illness, and patient centered.

So for those in Europe currently experiencing cancer, visiting the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland, the Humlegaarden Private Cancer Clinic in Denmark or the Arcadia Klinik in Germany might turn out the best thing you ever did, as may be looking up the Center for New Medicine or the Orange County Immune Institute for people based in the US. And for everyone else: what these doctors apply with their patients is partly common sense, partly easy things to do at home, and partly requires specialist equipment. You can inquire locally, as I’m sure professionals in your area apply some of these methods also. Another good contact for holistic healthcare not mentioned in this film is the Quantica Clinic in Bichwil, Switzerland.

Allowing the Vibrational Change

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Many of the symptoms we’re witnessing amongst those around us can be explained in terms of the vibrational change we’re undergoing. The shift is on, and people are responding by either welcoming or resisting it at all kinds of levels. It’s quite a fascinating phenomenon to behold, as well as a bit disturbing as people who don’t get it lash out at whatever influence they perceive is the culprit for their disorientation.

Fascinating stuff, but intrinsically important to what’s happening here at the surface level.

Most importantly is the personal level of this transformation that’s happening whether people want to acknowledge it or not. Fighting the structural degradation of old paradigms is always a messy affair, with seeming little to support our old viewpoints, except desperate grabbing on to old thought patterns and resultant behaviors which have shaped our lives. Such is the death of the old.

The overwhelmingly empowering aspect of what humanity is experiencing is the complete liberation from decrepit control systems into a world longing for exploration and enjoyment that brings with it realms of transformation we never dreamed of.

Are You “Spiritual But Not Religious?”

By Lissa Rankin MD

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

When I talk to some people about spirituality, they commonly respond with, “Oh, but I’m not religious,” to which I respond, “Yeah, me neither.” Then they look a bit puzzled. The way I see it, every religion is some human being’s interpretation of spiritual principles, and while there’s a lot of overlap in the teachings of all religions that probably points to some spiritual truth, I find myself resisting any dogma that says that one way is “The Way” and everything else is hogwash.

Ages ago, I wrote about my “Grab Bag Religion”. Some critique such an approach to spirituality, arguing that those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious” lack the discipline that comes from focus on one religious pathway. Others say that the California-style “It’s all good” approach to spirituality fails to offer clear morals and strict values. This may be a valid criticism. Certainly spiritual practice can deepen one’s spiritual journey, and living a life of integrity tends to accompany spiritual commitment.

I certainly respect those who have found a religious discipline that feels aligned with their truth, but after investigating many religious paths, none felt truly authentic to my soul.

The Dangers of Warfarin (Coumadin) – Plus Natural Alternatives for Stroke Prevention

By Dr. Michelle Kmiec

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

For some reason, conventional medicine would have you believe that Warfarin (Coumadin) is the better and safer choice over Vitamin E therapy for the prevention of strokes. Unfortunately, there simply aren’t many medical doctors who even bother to read the research supporting the efficacy of Vitamin E over the widely prescribed pharmaceutical Coumadin. Instead, they continue to stay true to their pharmaceutical-company allegiances, despite the hundreds of thousands of deaths that occur yearly because of it.

Oddly, even if a doctor is “skeptical” about Vitamin E therapy, there a no known adverse effects in short-term treatment, and they could simply monitor the patient’s blood via Pro time (Hematology) tests.

Vitamin E Therapy

When used in higher dosages (4000 IU or less), natural Vitamin E potentiates the effects of Coumadin (Warfarin), making Vitamin E a safe substitute in place of the drug.

Why Cannabis is the Future of Medicine

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The future of medicine rests on the fundamental right we all have to use things that spring from the Earth naturally as healing agents. Why should cannabis, used for at least 10000 years by humankind to alleviate suffering, be excluded from this inexorable mandate?

The politics of cannabis are exceedingly complex, and yet the truth is simple: this freely growing plant heals the human body – not to mention provides food, fuel, clothing and shelter, if only we will let it perform its birthright.

We recently investigated the strange fact that the human body is in many ways pre-designed, or as it were, pre-loaded with a receptiveness to cannabis’ active compounds — cannabinoids — thanks to its well documented endocannabinoid system. And yet, the medical-industrial complex in the U.S. does not want you to use these freely growing compounds – they threaten its very business model and existence. This is why cannabis prohibition synergizes so naturally with the burgeoning privatized prison sector in the U.S., which now has the dubious title of having the highest incarceration rate in the world.

Trinity’s Carob and Coconut Cake Recipe (Gluten Free, Sugar Free & Vegan)

By Trinity Bourne

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Cakes might be alluringly delicious, but they are typically full of all sorts of stuff that don’t really do our health any favours. So, I am on a bit of a mission to find some delicious alternatives created with healthy, nutritious ingredients, that work for people with most food allergies and sensitivities (dairy-free, wheat-free, gluten-free, no-egg, gmo free etc)…

A lot of people are sensitive to wheat, gluten or diary without even knowing it. Some foods can make people feel sluggish and experience one of a whole myriad of health problems; but then we have a tendency to carry on regardless and our ailments wind up running in the background as we turn a blind eye… Eating healthily involves quite a bit of forethought, effort and mastering the art of ‘letting go’, so it’s understandable why people aren’t leaping and bounding all over it.

I’ve eaten vegan for 20 years and rarely eat wheat or refined sugar, so I’m really blessed to have those bases covered already! However, I am always looking to expand my horizons and after going gluten free at the beginning of this year I started noticing that I felt amazing keeping it out of my diet. I am enjoying a whole new wave of inspiration of new tasty vegan and gluten-free stuff, like the delicious raw chocolate brownies that I shared earlier (yum!!!).

Overcoming Fear in Today’s Uncertain World

10th November 2014

By Gaye Levy

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Every afternoon as I sit down with an extra large cup of espresso, I ponder something to write about next. In that last three years, I have written over 570 articles. A lot the articles have been about prepping and self sufficiency but a large number have also been about more touchy-feely topics as I talk about life and getting by during hard times.

Today is one of those days, as I muse about coping skills as they relate to the fear of ‘the worst’. I don’t know about you, but as hard as I try to stay above it all, there are days when the burden of truth and knowledge is all too much and a teeny tiny bit of fear sets in.

What Do You Fear?

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Fear is something that every human and most animals will experience at some time or another. It is that feeling of anxiety we get when the outcome of something threatens our well-being and safety.

Ashwaganda Root

By Dr. Edward F. Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Maybe you haven’t felt the urge in a while. Perhaps it just hasn’t felt as good as it used to. It could be stress, or it could be something more. When it comes to boosting your sex drive, the topic may seem a bit taboo to discuss. Regardless, a healthy sex life is important for reducing stress, building a healthy relationship with your partner, and improving overall wellbeing. Diet and exercise offer the best solutions for stimulating sexual desire; yet, a number of herbal tools may also provide support. When you need a little boost, turn to these 10 herbs for help.

1. Ashwaganda Root

The Kama Sutra identifies ashwagandha as a potent igniter of passion and desire. While that benefit may get your immediate attention, its popularity with women has more to do with the way it stimulates libido and increases satisfaction. The herb can increase blood flow to the clitoris and other female sexual organs, creating an intense sexual experience.
