Though there are plenty of ways to get antioxidants through diet, supplements can help you get even more. Alpha-Lipoic acid ALA is an antioxidant that has been studied in diabetes, heart disease and liver disease.
It supports sugar metabolism in the liver and prevents alcoholic liver disease. The most common dose is mg three times a day. The most common dose to support the liver is — mg twice daily.
ALA may interact with diabetes medications, so consult your physician regarding the best dose. There have been rare cases where very high doses of NAC increased liver enzymes.

The economic incentives are all backwards: Obamacare will punish healthy people while subsidizing those who refuse to take care of their health. Here are the numbers: There has been some decline in cigarette smoking in the USA, but with all the known health issues associated with smoking cigarettes, it seemed there should be almost no new domestic smokers at all.
But the power of advertising has prevailed, even more so in third world countries with less restrictions on cigarette advertising. Is it the Tobacco Plant, or Something Else? Avoid enclosed areas where people smoke. The Department of Health and Human Services had approved chemical additives to cigarettes by Among them are ammonia compounds to create a nicotine freebase effect. Then there are the toxic additives to the paper to make it burn evenly. Cadmium is a heavy metal with a half-life of 10 to 30 years residence in human tissue, and it easily surpasses toxic levels.
Few mention chemtrails or aerosol geoengineering exposure because most deny their existence. Deny them all you want, but the heavy metal nanoparticles have been trapped in ground level water or air traps after heavy chemtrailing include, among others, barium, aluminum, and cadmium. Retired neurosurgeon and author Dr.
Russell Blaylock has voiced concerns over chemtrail aluminum nanoparticles that are breathed in and make their way into the central nervous system and brain. Access a study on that here.
Then begin watching your sky objectively. You can protect yourself from those toxic nanoparticles by detoxing heavy metals often. My favorites are lots of chlorella, fresh organic cilantro, and cliniptilolite zeolite powder not capsules or liquids.
Here are 6 foods for natural heavy metal chelation. A five day detox with 1. Shallenberger - Real Cures newsletter July , Vol. But which ones are the most important? Almost all of my diabetic patients have seen tremendous results using these. Chromium piccolinate— Chromium is an important element in your glucose tolerance factor GTF.
GTF is made up of chromium, niacin, and the amino acids cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine, and worksin tandem with insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. I suggest a dose of 1, mcg to 3, mcg daily. Alpha lipoic acid— Serves a central role in fat metabolism.
It is critical for the production of acetyl-coenzyme A from fat. Acetyl-coenzyme A is the substance that kick starts the energy production cycle. In the event of a deficiency of this enzyme, lactic acid levels rise in the body and can lead to lactic acidosis — a potentially life-threatening condition.
Lipoic acid is important for preventing the onset of diabetes, improving blood sugar control, reducing the incidence of cataracts in diabetics, preventing kidney damage which is a common diabetes complication , and it also helps prevent peripheral neuropathy which is common in diabetics. Many cases of diabetic neuropathy can be improved and even cured using mg, three times a day. In the absence of neuropathy, I recommend doses of mg two times a day. I consider lipoic acid an absolutely essential part of any treatment or prevention strategy for diabetes.
Niacinamide— This is a specific form of niacin. Niacin is a nutrient all of us should get more of. For diabetics, it's one of the most important nutrients for maintaining proper fat metabolism and correct triglyceride levels. I have my patients take a minimum of mg of niacinamide a day. Preferably , mg daily.
L-Carnitine— L-Carnitine works incombination with fat molecules, lipoic acid, and acetyl-coenzyme A to penetrate the membrane of the mitochondria. I recommend 1, mg to 3, mg of carnitine daily. Glycyrrhiza glabra— You probably know this one as licorice. Licorice is one of my favorite herbs for my diabetic patients because of its amazing effect on exhausted adrenal glands.
It contains natural precursors for the production of adrenal hormones. It works in a similar way to the adrenal hormone aldosterone, which is often deficient in adrenal insufficiency. In rare cases, supplementing with licorice can slightly elevate blood pressure levels. If you have hypertension, it's important to keep a check on blood pressure levels when taking licorice.
In addition, licorice can also lead to a decline in potassium levels. Vanadium— Like chromium, vanadium is another trace mineral that plays an enormous role in the activity of insulin. In the form of vanadyl sulfate, it not only improves insulin resistance, but has its own insulin effect, making it especially important for people with low insulin levels.
It does this by increasing the number of islet cells in the pancreas and actually regenerates and repairs islet cells previously destroyed by free radicals.
Other herbs— I also recommend a number of herbal supplements to help improve insulin sensitivity. One is Galega officinalis, which contains an ingredient called guanidine from which the diabetes drug metformin is produced.
And the second is Mormodica Charantia, or bitter lemon. I recommend mg of a 4: Together, these two herbs alone can have a modest effect on insulin sensitivity, but when combined with the other supplements mentioned here, they can make quite a difference.
Clots, Strokes -- but not for bleeding strokes] Dr. In fact, she hadn't had a decent night's sleep in over a year. When I examined her, June was overweight and her blood pressure was elevated. The emergency doctor had prescribed a nitroglycerin patch for the angina. Nitroglycerin is a very old herbal remedy that works exceptionally well for angina. It causes the blood vessels leading to the heart to expand and permits more blood to flow in.
The first thing I did was to tell her to stay on her nitro patch. Then, I prescribed the homeopathic medication, ignatia. Ignatia is an excellent remedy for conditions caused by grief, especially insomnia. Next, I explained to her that blood flow was not just a matter of how big the arteries are. It is also a matter of how thick the blood is. Thick blood is like oil on a cold day.
It can't flow well, and tends to clog. That's why the doctor had placed her on an aspirin twice a day. To keep her blood thin and flowing well, I prescribed two treatments. First, I put her on a boiled vegetables-only diet. Absolutely no fat or protein. Dietary fat and protein thickens the blood for several hours after eating, and this was not a good idea for her at this time. Second, I had her take the following supplements three times a day: All of these remedies work in different ways to thin out the blood.
Then I stopped the aspirin: No need to take aspirin now that she was on this therapy. The last thing she needed was an aspirin-induced ulcer. She was sleeping better, and had more energy. Better yet, her angina pains never returned. I told her to stop the nitro patches, because I didn't think she needed them anymore. Two months later, I sent June to a cardiologist for evaluation. Although she felt great and had lost 17 pounds, I wanted to make sure she was ready to start exercising.
The cardiologist performed a stress test and an echocardiogram. No signs of heart disease at all. She was given full permission to start a regular exercise program.
It is now seven years later. I see June once a year just to make sure that she is taking good care of herself. The key to her program is a combination of monthly chelation treatments combined with a personalized diet and an exercise program.
She remarried two years ago, and told me she has never been happier. I have a question about garlic. What's the best way to consume it: I prefer to use the natural garlic as opposed to capsules, but have not been able to discover which is most beneficial.
In this form, it's one of the best remedies for intestinal parasites and yeast. I'll never forget a patient I had once who had severe coronary artery disease, and was told by his cardiologist that he needed an immediate surgery or he would surely die. Instead he started eating a whole bulb of raw garlic a day, along with two teaspoons of cayenne pepper. But it shows you how powerful the herb is.
I would recommend that you mince fresh garlic, let it soak in olive oil for about an hour, and take it that way. Start off easy, because it might take a while for your stomach and intestines to get used to it.

Hear the 'Awakenings' podcast from the Health Ranger http: It is an evergreen tree from South America that produces a type of bark that has been claimed to cure or prevent cancer, along with other illnesses. The scientific name is Tabebuia avellanedae, and the tea that is made from this bark is often referred to as "Pau d'arco," though many alternative names have been used. The University of Maryland found that this specific tea, or bark extract, has anticancer properties, as well as anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, antifungal and antimicrobial properties.
There has not been any well-known testing on humans, but studies have already proven that this particular bark provides a stimulation of immune system cells known as macrophages. Additionally, this bark has been reported to kill lung cancer cells and liver cancer cells that were grown and analyzed in a test-tube study. The tea, often called Taheebo tea, is hard to mix with water, requiring up to 20 minutes of varying heat and boiling measures, but many people have reported this particular tea to have cured them of their health ailments.
One website reports a testimonial that claims this tea to have cured a man diagnosed with lymphoma, and who had only a matter of months to live. In , Anna Hodgekiss with the Daily Mail reported a woman who had been diagnosed with Crohn's disease and who took it upon herself to test many different barks for a cure.
She did not specify the particular bark she found successful, but she has already sold it to a pharmaceutical company, going to show that bark is a form of treatment in which people can place their trust. The typical uses of Pau d'arco, listed by the University of Maryland, include treatment of cancer, candidiasis, influenza, parasitic disease, herpes and bacterial infection. Louise Tenney writes in the Cancer News Journal, that this tree bark, sometimes called Ipe Roxo, has curative powers that have proved countless times to have healed thousands of people.
It very well might be that the cure for cancer is found in this tree bark. Distributors of this bark reported that a client cured his dog of a skin condition with the tea. The owner himself claims this tea cured colon cancer in his own father.
Although this tree is now endangered, the main producers of the tea instructs people to use their signature method when stripping the bark from the tree so that it does not kill the species but leaves it able to produce more bark for future harvests. High levels of the bark extract have the potential to be poisonous. One study, however, conducted in the 70s by the National Cancer Institute, found no toxic effects on liver or kidney tissue.
The ACS also claims that many people are selling derivatives and false variations of the bark. There was a study in Canada that tested 12 products claiming to be Pau d'arco and found only one of these products to have contained lapachol, which is the pure ingredient of Pau d'arco. The University of Maryland cautions consumers that this bark in heavy doses can cause unmanageable bleeding, while some proponents actually claim this is a blood builder.
It is hard to tell how beneficial this herb exactly is, but it might prove more helpful than harsher Western medical treatments. Sources of this article include: Their antioxidant component scientifically proven to cause cancer http: We're talking about nearly 75, Americans each year. Is this a plague upon us?
Chickens are supposed to eat BUGS too, y'know? Also, fish are supposed to eat plankton, krill and algae and many types are high in omega-3 -- not corn and ground up-larger fish from which they accumulate heavy metals, PCBs and other toxins. Much of what medical researchers conclude in their studies is misleading, exaggerated, or flat-out wrong.
So why are doctors—to a striking extent—still drawing upon misinformation in their everyday practice? John Ioannidis has spent his career challenging his peers by exposing their bad science. A new book exposes the fraud and reviews the legitimate alternative cures. Neither a cure nor prevention is the priority any longer, because the real money is made from treating cancer.
Despite the efforts of the cartel to suppress natural cancer therapies, many have succeeded in actually curing thousands of terminal patients so that they can return to a normal life.
Juxtaposing these alternative therapies against traditional therapy is the focus of the book. As far as the 'War on Cancer', even with hundreds of billions contributed to the cause over the past 4 decades, the survival rate shows little improvement.
In place of the medical cartel-devised Obamacare, a new system designed from the ground up is needed to create truly affordable healthcare. It's necessary to take a stand, don't wait for armed IRS agents to come knocking at your door. Interleaved with these stories are factual reports about the Medical Cartel. Tribute is paid to visionaries who made major contributions towards our understanding of cancer, especially Dr Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner and biochemist who discovered the generic cause of cancer in the 's.
Other great innovators in cancer research and promotion of natural cures are Dean Burk, Max Gerson, Stanislaw Burzynski and Ernst Krebs Jr who each achieved extraordinary breakthroughs. Now, the imposition of Obamacare appears to be an even worse omen for the future.
Later, he tried to change his promise to a conditional one: That era has been long gone as a large number of Congressmen now spend their time huddling with lobbyists and planning new ways to enrich large corporations.
This situation is reflected in the lowest public opinion poll of Congress ever taken. When the first round of insurance cancellation notices were sent out in the last quarter of , the deception of 'keeping your healthcare plan' hit home to 6,, Americans who held private insurance. Even worse, the Department of Health and Human Services HHS estimates another 75 million who have employer-provided health insurance will lose their existing plans as well.
According to Ron Paul, "16, armed bureaucrats coming to make this program work - if it was a good program and everybody liked it, you wouldn't need 16, thugs coming with their guns and putting you in jail if you didn't follow all the rules. Senator Max Baucus, from whose committee the bill originated said Obamacare was drafted by Liz Fowler, left, who was Vice President at WellPoint, the largest private health insurer in the country.
Then she returned to the Senator's committee to play a prime role in drafting Obamacare legislation. Not only did Fowler play a major role in writing the law, but she then joined the Obama Administration to help implement the law. Yet even with documented evidence of their successful cures and patient testimonies to back them up, these medical visionaries have suffered inordinate harassment and in some cases arrests, lawsuits and trials initiated by the American Medical Association and the corrupt FDA until most were forced to close their clinics and leave the United States.
The people most affected by this harassment and persecution are those cancer patients who desire alternative therapies that work and those classified as terminal, left with no hope. Besides assisting Big Pharma research, they helped the FDA by producing negative test results for natural therapies.
They served to expand membership, raise income and attack all known alternative cancer therapies, forcing most out of business. The revolving door between the Drug monoliths and the FDA is well known and explains their priorities.
Fluoridation and Cancer As Dr Burk of the NCI revealed thru scientific studies, adding Fluoride to city reservoirs results in dramatically higher cancer rates in those cities. Vaccination and Cancer A steady increase in the vaccinations of young children has led to the dramatic increase in cancer over the past 60 years.
The SV40 virus embedded in the polio vaccines of the 50's has proven to be a virulent carcinogen. Vaccine preservatives such as mercury and formaldehyde are also highly toxic and bio-accumulate in the body. At the FDA, which is, in fact, killing Americans at that rate, no one has ever felt the need to step forward and speak up. Let's shift the venue and ask the same question.
If you were a medical reporter for a major media outlet in the US, and you knew the above fact, wouldn't you make it a priority to say something, write something, do something? And with that, let's go to the smoking guns. The report was compiled by outside researchers who went into the FDA's own database of "serious adverse [medical-drug] events. The FDA knows and it isn't saying anything about it, because the FDA certifies, as safe and effective, all the medical drugs that are routinely maiming and killing Americans.
Previously, I have documented that the FDA knows; because the FDA has a page on its own website that admits , people are killed every year by medical drugs, and two million more people are severely injured by the drugs.
And for the past five years or so, I have been writing about and citing a published report by the late Dr. Barbara Starfield that indicates , people in the US are killed by medical drugs every year. Until her death in , Dr. Her report, "Is US health really the best in the world? Since the Department of Homeland Security is working its way into every nook and corner of American life, hyper-extending its mandate to protect all of us from everything, why shouldn't I go along with Janet Napolitano's advice: This is what I see and this is what I'm saying.
How many smoking guns do we need before a sitting president shuts down the FDA buildings, fumigates the place, and prosecutes very large numbers of FDA employees? Do we need , smoking guns every year?
Do we need relatives of the people who've all died in the span of merely a year, from the poisonous effects of FDA-approved medical drugs, to bring their corpses to the doors of FDA headquarters? And let me ask another question. If instead of drugs like warfarin, dabigatran, levofloxacin, carboplatin, and lisinopril the five leading killers in the FDA database , the , deaths per year were led by gingko, ginseng, vitamin D, niacin, and raw milk, what do you think would happen?
I'll tell you what would happen. The resulting fatalities would be written off as necessary collateral damage in the fight to keep America safe and healthy. All those phony stories in the press, reported dutifully by so-called medical reporters? The stories about maybe-could-be-possible-miracle breakthroughs just over the horizon of state-of-the-art medical research? Those stories are there to obscure the very, very hard facts of medically-caused death on the ground.
The buck stops at the FDA. Except in the real world, it doesn't. Which tells you something about the so-called real world and how much of it is composed of propaganda.
Here is the situation. No medical drug in the US can be released for public use unless and until the FDA says it is safe and effective. The FDA is spitting out drug approvals month after month and year after year, and the drugs are routinely killing , people a year and maiming two million more, which adds up to a million deaths per decade and 20 million maimings per decade.
The FDA and the federal government are doing nothing about it, even though they know what's going on. This is mass murder. Well, a New York court made such a determination long ago, and recently refused the plea of a plaintiff who tried to overturn the archaic decision. Massachusetts], all children who attend New York pubic schools can be 'forced' to be vaccinated, according to a 2nd circuit court of law. The law was determined in but was recently challenged by Dina Check, the plaintiff who decided that her Catholic religion gave her a right to determine whether or not her child should be vaccinated.
While religious leanings are a fine reason to refuse a vaccination -- the court also determined against her in the case because there was 'strong evidence' that her refusal vaccines were due to her fear of them being harmful, and not due to her religious beliefs.
Unfortunately, it's true that vaccines can potentially cause unwanted problems, as outlined even by the CDC's Vaccine Adverse Event reports.
Vaccine could lead to reproductive health damage, hampered child development, and other neurological disorders. This is no less abhorrent than the teenage girl who was recently told by a court of law that she HAD to get chemotherapy for her cancer treatment. How can the nations of the free make such an enforcement on its citizens? There are currently 58 bills in 24 different states that would limit your rights when it comes to vaccines, and in some cases, you would be forced or face jail time or have your children taken from you by Child Protective Services.
This should also cause a moment of reflection since the US has an extremely high infant mortality rate and we start vaccinating our babies before they even reach 12 months old. I hope Dina Check appeals, and so does the year old Hodgkin's patient.
Your health is your right. Obamacare Fiasco This chapter covers a description of the failed launch, website deficiencies, security issues, continuing exclusions and delays and the insidious role of the IRS. Natural therapies are available and the book highlights several possibilities. One must realize that cancer is not some foreign invader but a part of our biological process that has run amuck. It can be cured with proper knowledge and self discipline.

Ryke Geerd Hamer, left, discovered that not only cancer but all diseases are triggered by unexpected shocks and traumas.
Thugs showed up and threatened that if he didn't disown his findings, things would become unpleasant. Hugo Salinas Price [Lindsey Williams knows this Mexican billionaire, who has given us advice about the coming collapse of the dollar -- search for his name on my Latest page. When the war was over, the Spanish began to investigate the culture of the conquered people and found, to their amazement, that the people of what is now Mexico possessed a vast body of medical knowledge based on the curative qualities of plants.
The Spanish filed reports and sent back to Spain drawings of the plants with their Aztec names together with information about their curative powers. The reaction of the doctors in Spain was immediate. They do not know that the human body is governed by four humors or liquid spirits in the body: These humors are affected by the planets, the Sun and the Moon.
When there is no balance of these humors in the body, then the body is sick. The Aztecs have only experience upon which to base their medicine; our medicine is vastly superior because we know the true theory of health, and we deduce our medicine from the theory.
All that medicine from New Spain Mexico is nonsense. Faced by an accuser, he pulled out a cutting from an herb from a little bag he was carrying. He asked the accuser to smell it, which he did. Nothing could stop it. The Aztec was implored to stop the bleeding. He pulled out another herb from his bag and gave it to the bleeding man to smell.
The hemorrhage stopped immediately. The case against the Aztec doctor was dismissed. Such is the world, and such it will ever be. Today, Ph Ds in Economics infest the landscape. However, we are not to be taken into account, like the Aztec doctors, because we do not know the all-important theory. We only have the experience of centuries, or millennia, to back up our considerations, and that of course, cuts no ice: Take the case of the Dutchman Antony van Leeuwenhoek He became wealthy as a cloth merchant.
In his youth, as an apprentice to a cloth merchant, he first saw a magnifying glass, which was used by such merchants to examine their goods more closely. Later on, he developed a fascination with lenses; he began to make his own lenses and to apply them to looking at tiny things which had never been examined before. He wrote to the Royal Society believing them to be open-mined and interested in his work.
Well, the Royal Society disbelieved his account of these microbes — the first any man had seen! He was only a retired cloth merchant. What could he know?
Then again, we have Galileo, who first saw the moons that circle Jupiter, which convinced him that the Earth circles the Sun — an opinion hateful to the Catholic Church at that time. He barely escaped burning at the stake, a fate which ended the life of Giordano Bruno in , who postulated an infinite Universe and the multiplicity of worlds. An emissary from the Inquisition visited Galileo in his home. Galileo urged him to look through his telescope and see the moons of Jupiter for himself.
The official refused to look through the telescope. Theory or dogma had to take precedence. The facts are irrelevant if they do not confirm the theory or dogma. This attitude prevails to our day, and will always prevail as long as human nature is what it is.
The experience of the Wright brothers is illuminating with regard to the Media. The Wright brothers had been flying their airplane on the outskirts of Dayton, Ohio, for five years before the local newspaper decided to send a reporter to investigate — the idea of a heavier-than-air machine taking to the air was unthinkable, why bother?
The vast majority of people do not really see with their own eyes: However, hundreds of millions of individuals all over the world attribute the collapse of these buildings to the fact that they were struck by two airplanes, and they will get angry if you suggest that the buildings could not have collapsed as a result of those airplanes crashing into them; the fact that WTC-7 collapsed on its own footprint, like the Twin Towers, and no airplane struck it is — well, beside the point for these people.
Facts are supposed to confirm a theory; if they do not — then the facts must be shelved. So the uncomfortable facts that archeologists come up with are filtered out of their reports. In their field of investigation, theory comes first, and only facts which agree with the Darwinian theory of evolution are reported.
Other facts are discreetly ignored. But the ultimate delusion prevailing in the world for the last forty years is fiat money. This delusion is so powerful that only a tiny minority among the close to 7 billion human beings on Earth is aware that it is a delusion, that all the money being used in the world as money, is in fact not money, but a simulation of money.
Fiat money is now rapidly destroying the world, but in spite of all the signs pointing to fiat money as the cause, the foremost brains of the world refuse to acknowledge the fact.
Their theories, which they were taught in prestigious schools and universities, take precedence over the fact of collapsing economies. This book was first published in , and reprinted in This book places before us a microcosm of our present world. What happened in Revolutionary France in the years to is precisely what is taking place in the whole world in The world is living in a process of monetary degeneration which began, explicitly, with the outbreak of World War I in , though its origin lay in a series of previous financial malpractices dating back years before World War I; the disastrous conclusion of that process is approaching.
The lawmakers, impatient to resolve the problem of economic malaise which the Revolution itself had caused, decided to take a short-cut to stimulate the economy. Deaf to the warnings of men with financial experience, they confirmed to one another the supposed validity of their fallacious reasoning; convincing themselves of the viability of their monetary scheme, the lawmakers carried forward a project based on fiat money — money irredeemable in gold or silver.
In spite of the negative results which this policy soon produced — a steadily falling purchasing power of this fiat money, reflected in the rising prices of all goods - they insisted on pressing forward on this mistaken road and attributed the bad results to everything but their policy of inflation with fictitious money.
That invariable law of finance with regard to fiat money, the law of the acceleration in the issue of fiat money and its concomitant accelerated depreciation, took possession of the French legislature. Seven years later, France was totally ruined. Manufacturing had closed down. Unemployment was pervasive and consequently the stagnating salaries for labor brought enormous hardship for the poor, amid rising prices of food, clothing and fuel. Unemployment was only relieved by the military drafts which sent millions of Frenchmen to their deaths in the foreign wars.
Morals suffered a precipitous decline. All business activity became a game of chance. Speculation enriched unscrupulous men and at the same time swept the poorer classes of the population into misery.
Famine forced the government to dole out bread to the population. What is perhaps most noteworthy in this fateful French experiment is that not one of those responsible for the disaster ever acknowledged having been mistaken. What took place in France, under the régime of fiat money, is precisely what is happening in our world today.
