Medicinal mushrooms are among the most powerful foods for preventing and treating cancer. Get the scoop on 7 cancer-fighting...

Having secured a rich history in many ancient Asian healing practices, medicinal mushrooms have been prescribed and used for countless ailments for thousands of years. As modern medicine rediscovers these ancient superfoods, there is good evidence that mushrooms are among the most powerful functional foods in a growing cancer-fighting and cancer-prevention arsenal.

Modern research confirms what many traditional healers have known for centuries – that mushrooms contain some of the most potent, yet safest medicinal ingredients found in nature. What’s more, most of these ingredients cause very few side effects – if at all – even at very high doses.

It is first important to differentiate between the anti-cancer medicinal mushrooms and the countless other common varieties. A quick visit to the local supermarket will reveal culinary mushrooms such as oyster, portabella, and others. Although these have their health benefits, the focus of this article will be on four of the more specialized and not typically commercially grown reishi, maitake, agaricus blazei murill, and turkey tail mushrooms.

It’s clear now that mushrooms are legitimate treatments in their own right for many health conditions, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer.

Medicinal Mushrooms and Cancer

There are a few primary mechanisms that most of these functional, anti-cancer mushrooms share when assisting the body during cancer stages or in simple everyday prevention. First is their ability to enhance the body’s first line of defense against cancer − the immune system. When this system is weak or has failed, the mechanism for cancer has a better opportunity to manifest.

Next, some anti-cancer mushrooms exhibit direct antiviral and tumor shrinking abilities. As mentioned above, side effects are rare and mild but it is still important to talk with your healthcare provider before use.

It has been demonstrated that, in some cases, formulas containing multiple strains of different mushroom extracts often exhibit synergistic, complementary, and amplified effects. This is in stark contrast to many of the negative cumulative effects of chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy methods commonly prescribed in hospitals today. As with research for many alternative treatments, the United States has been late to the party when it comes to medical research on the anti-cancer and overall health benefits of mushrooms.

#1. Reishi Mushroom Benefits: The Mushroom of Immortality

Used for over 2000 years by sages and shamans and known in China as the “spirit plant” – also known as Mannentake, Ling Zhi or Ling Chi – Reishi relaxes and fortifies both mind and body. This fungus holds a very important place in the traditional medical systems of China, Japan, and Korea.

Ganoderma lucidum, or better known by its common name, reishi, it is one of the most well-known medicinal mushroom in Asian healing arts. The mushroom’s bioactive molecules and polysaccharides have been shown to better activate natural killer (NK) cells reducing cancer metastasis. NK cells are lymphocytes that perform immunosurveillance within the body, constantly on the lookout for “immuno-alerters” signaling tumor presence.

Reishi also has been shown to assist in slowing the growth (angiogenesis) of tumors as well as triggering programmed cell death in malignant cells. Currently, there is data to support the potential use of reishi as, at the very least, an adjunct therapy for colorectal cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer.

Studies have shown that Reishi helps to:

  • Counter free radicals and fight inflammation. Reishi has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, Reishi compares very favorably to the synthetic anti-inflammatory drug prednisone, without the side effects. Also, Reishi may be able to counter our susceptibility to many aging-associated diseases, thanks to its powerful ability to fight free radicals and reduce cellular damage associated with oxidative stress.
  • Enhance immune system activity. Reishi enhances multiple aspects of the immune system in advanced stage cancer patients and lung cancer patients.
  • Fight cancer. Reishi ingredients are toxic to multiple cancer cell lines in culture – including leukemia, breast, ovarian, cervical, and lung cancer cells, among others. Evidence suggests Ganoderic acid is a potential anti-metastatic agent. Metastasis is the migration of cancer cells from their place of origin to other areas of the body.

#2. Maitake Mushroom Benefits: The Dancing Mushroom

Maitake, like the reishi mushroom, also contains a broad-spectrum array of bioactive molecules. In studies, maitake has shown similar results as the reishi mushroom in stimulating NK cell activity in cancer patients. The mushroom also shows promise in blocking tumor growth and activating malignant cell death through its specific immune-enhancing methods. Maitake has clinically shown promise for individuals with breast cancer, lung cancer, and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).Maitake-Medicinal-Mushroom

#3. Agaricus Blazei Murill: Tokyo’s Cancer Secret

This mushroom made perhaps the biggest splash when a study jointly conducted by the Medical Department of Tokyo University, The National Cancer Center Laboratory, and Tokyo College of Pharmacy showed a complete recovery in 90% of guinea pigs injected with cancer cells (180 sarcoma).

The pattern of other mushrooms was seen again as agaricus blazei murill activated macrophage and interferon immune activity leading to tumor shrinkage, a halt in metastasis, and reduction of future cancer occurrences. As an adjunct, agaricus blazei murill was shown to lessen the side effects in individuals undergoing chemotherapy for endometrial, cervical, and ovarian cancers.

#4. Turkey Tail: The Natural Japanese Cancer Drug

In 1976, a Japanese company patented certain extracts of this mushroom under the name PSK and later PSP. They have since become recognized cancer drugs in Japan. The anti-viral properties of the turkey tail mushroom offer a unique opportunity to target oncoviruses (tumor virus) such as hepatitis C leading to liver cancers, and others. For this mushroom, again studies are showing increased NK activity towards tumor detection and eradication.

It is important to note that drug companies cannot patent mushrooms. Due to this fact, funds typically won’t be allocated to study them unless they come from private institutions or government grants. However, this should be a positive as many studies only seek to isolate one part of a plant or mushroom to patent as a drug.

As mycologist (mushroom expert) Paul Stamets states,

Isolating one constituent from the others denatures and lessens the broad-spectrum potency of this natural, functional food.”

#5. Cordyceps: The Caterpillar Fungus

Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis) is also known as the Caterpillar Fungus and Dong Ching Xia Cao (Summer grass, winter worm), Cordyceps has long been a part of traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine. An extremely rare combination of a mummified caterpillar and a fungus, it is found at very high altitudes in the Himalayas, on the Tibetan plateau, and other high-altitude locations around the world.

Cordyceps – both the mummified caterpillar and the fungus – contain many potent bioactive compounds, including cordyceptin, cordycepic acid, polysaccharides, and sterols.

Studies have shown that Cordyceps helps to:

  • Manage blood sugar levels in a healthy range. Emerging evidence indicates that the Cordyceps is likely to prove to useful in the management of diabetes.
  • Improve transplant success rates. Cordyceps protects the heart and lowered the rate of cardiac rejection in an animal model of heart transplantation. When given after kidney transplants, Cordyceps also reduced the rejection rate, improved kidney and liver function, boosted red blood cell production, and lowered infection rates in patients.
  • Strengthen the immune system. Cordyceps boosted production and activity of various components of the immune system in animal experiments.
  • Enhance antioxidant ability. Cordyceps raised levels and activity of innate enzymatic antioxidant systems in animal models.
  • Boost libido. Cordyceps boosts libido and sexual activity, along with restoring impaired reproductive function in animals as well as humans.
  • Improve exercise performance. Cordyceps made international headlines by helping Chinese runners break two world records by huge margins at the Asian Games in 1993. Cordyceps likely improves stamina because it stimulates production of ATP, one of the main sources of energy in our body’s cells. Cordyceps has also been shown to dilate the aorta – the main artery in the body that supplies oxygenated blood to the entire circulatory system – by 40%, greatly increasing blood flow and enhancing endurance.
  • Fight cancer. In laboratory experiments, Cordyceps was selectively toxic for cancer cells, without affecting normal, healthy cells. Bioactive ingredients in Cordyceps including cordyceptin attack and destroy mouth, bladder, prostate, breast, liver, lung, cervical, leukemia, and colorectal cancers as well as lymphoma, melanoma, and neuroblastoma in culture.

#6. Chaga: “The Mushroom of Immortality”

Chaga mushrooms are fungi that grow on the bark of various trees, such as birch. These mushrooms thrive in moderate climates and are often found in countries like Russia, Canada, Siberia, the northeastern USA, and Korea. Long used in folk medicine, Chaga contains massive amounts of the pigment melanin, which causes the exterior of the mushroom to turn a deep black when exposed to the sun.

In test tube studies, chaga extract has been shown to suppress the progression of cancer, including liver, lung, colon, prostate, and breast.  In a study published in the journal of Biomedicine & Pharmacotherapy, researchers observed that obese and diabetic mice treated with chaga extract exhibited reduced insulin resistance as well as lower blood sugar levels.

Chaga is known by many names around the world. Most interestingly, it is called ‘kreftkjuke’ in Norway, which literally translates to “cancer fungus” due to its purported health properties.

Learn more about chaga here.

#7. Shiitake: “Miracle Mushroom”

Also known as “dongu” in China, shiitake mushrooms can be found growing wild in the forests of several East Asian countries. The word “shiitake” is actually derived from the Japanese words “shii” (type of tree where these mushrooms grow) and “také” (meaning ‘mushroom’). In other words, the name literally means “mushrooms of the shii tree.”

Some of the medicinal properties of shiitake mushroom are attributed to a potent anti-fungal sugar molecule named “lentinan.” In laboratory tests, lentinan does not kill cancer cells directly, but enhances a number of aspects of the immune system, which may aid in the slowing of tumor growth.

One study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine showed that oral administration of lentinan helped slow the development of small tumors and also helped inhibit the proliferation of leukemia cells. Another study found that the aqueous extracts of shiitake mushrooms contain compounds that are antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, protect the liver, and are also a potent antioxidant.

Famous for their meaty texture and earthy, smoky flavor, they’re the second most commonly cultivated edible mushrooms. However, when eaten raw, shiitake mushrooms can cause shiitake dermatitis, a skin eruption that resembles whiplash marks. If you’re planning to use shiitake mushrooms in your meals, be sure to cook them properly.

 

A final note on mushroom safety: there are many species of mushrooms that are highly poisonous to humans. It is strongly advised that individuals do not wild gather mushrooms for consumption unless you have done extensive research.

Nashville officials buried numbers showing very low infections in order to gaslight the public over need to keep bars and restaurants shut down

(Natural News) Today we are calling for the arrest and prosecution of top government officials in Nashville, TN, who have now been caught red-handed covering up the very low numbers of infections at restaurants and bars in order to gaslight the public and justify draconian business closures and lockdowns.

A bombshell investigation by Fox 17, WZTV in Nashville, has uncovered once-secret emails that reveal a shocking conspiracy to deliberately deceive the public by withholding covid-19 infections statistics that would have shown that bars and restaurants are not spreading infections.

While nursing homes and construction sites were found to have produced over 1,000 cases of coronavirus infections (each), bars and restaurants reported only 22 cases, reports Fox 17. From there, the cover-up begins. As Fox 17 reports:

Leslie Waller from the health department asks, “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?”

“Correct, not for public consumption,” writes senior advisor Benjamin Eagles.

A month later, the health department was asked point blank about the rumor there are only 80 cases traced to bars and restaurants.

Tennessee Lookout reporter Nate Rau asks, “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a very big problem?”

Health department official Brian Todd asked five health department officials, “Please advise how you recommend I respond.”

The name at the top of the response is clipped off but you may find the answer unacceptable.

“My two cents. We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site.

We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.”

Neither the health department nor the mayor’s office would confirm the authenticity of the emails but councilmember Steve Glover had a Metro staff attorney inquire. Here’s the official answer:

“I was able to get verification from the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health that these emails are real,” the staff attorney answered.

Glover says this is Metro Nashville orchestrating a cover up.

“They are fabricating information,” Glover said. “They’ve blown there entire credibility Dennis. Its gone, I don’t trust a thing they say going forward …nothing.”

They were “managing” the propaganda to deliberately mislead the public

What these emails show is that Nashville officials — almost all Democrats, of course — were carrying out acts of criminal fraud against the people of Tennessee. They were deliberately engineering or shaping the propaganda in order to mislead the public and try to justify lockdowns and closures that could not normally be justified if they had reported the real numbers.

Brian Todd, one of the officials involved, reportedly asked five other government officials how he should “respond” to questions about the data, implying that he couldn’t simply tell the truth and wanted to know how to shape the response to mislead the public.

It’s clear that the Nashville Mayor’s office would only share “bad” information with the public, while covering up “good” numbers that might justify reopening local businesses.

This is the weaponization of government against the people, isn’t it? Instead of local government working to help local citizens overcome the economic devastation of lockdowns and closures, these government officials were acting as enemies of the local people. As if they were waging a war against them!

As Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, “The Dem Mayor of Nashville KNOWINGLY LIED ABOUT COVID DATA to justify shutting down bars & restaurants, killing countless jobs & small businesses in the process. Everyone involved should face jail time. How many other Dem run cities is this happening in?”

We are calling for the arrest and prosecution of every Nashville officials involved in this criminal fraud

This story shows that Nashville officials recognized the “numbers were low” for bars and restaurants and therefore decided to withhold those numbers from the public.

This is criminal.

In a time when small businesses are being devastated by lockdowns that lead to bankruptcies, with jobs and livelihoods on the line, these Nashville government officials — who all hold cozy jobs as government workers — took actions that deliberately destroyed private sector businesses, almost like an act of BLM terrorism.

Black Lives Matter burns your business down, but Nashville officials destroy your entire revenue model, making them worse than terrorists.

Anyone who has ever wondered whether government was your enemy, look no further than Nashville.

It’s time that We the People started arresting these government criminals and tyrants who are abusing their power, lying to America and destroying local economies just so they can use the coronavirus pandemic to roll out their authoritarian schemes.

Arrest the covid criminals in Nashville, starting with Mayor John Cooper.

The post Is Dark Chocolate Really Healthy for you? 5 Benefits (+... appeared first on The Truth About Cancer.

]]>
Who doesn’t crave the creamy, nutty, and well, downright chocolatey goodness of this dark brown delicacy every once in a while.

If you stick with the “real deal” when it comes to dark chocolate and cacao (I’ll explain exactly what that means a little later), not only will your palate thank you, your body and mind will appreciate it as well!

WATCH VIDEO BELOW!

What is Chocolate? It All Starts with the Cacao

Chocolate as we know it today comes from the plant called cacao, which grows in low-hanging pods on in tropical regions of the world. Ancient peoples knew about cacao’s intense stamina-enhancing properties; the beans in raw form and in other ways have been eaten for hundreds, if not thousands, of years by cultures where cacao trees grow.

It has only been over the last approximately fifteen years, however, that modern science has caught on to the immense healing benefits that cacao can bring to the table, or the foil wrapper, as the case may be.

Cacao and The Kunas

In the early 2000s, Harvard Medical School researchers began to investigate the benefits of cacao by looking at one of the oldest cultures still in existence.

The Kunas have lived for generations on Caribbean islands off the coast of Panama. Interestingly, they also have some of the lowest rates of heart disease rates globally. Researchers at Harvard University who studied them back in 2005 thought this was odd since they were (and still are) very poor. The majority of Kuna individuals do not have access to conventional medical services such as hospitals, clinics or individual doctors. What the researchers did find, however, is that the diet of a typical Kuna person included, on average, about 4 to 5 cups of a liquid cacao drink, similar to a healthy version of our “hot chocolate,” every day.

5 Reasons to Indulge (Just a Little) In That Chocolate Craving

Before I go deeper into what science has discovered about the health benefits of cacao and how it may potentially help you in specific ways, I want to be clear. I am not suggesting that you should go out and eat all the store-bought chocolate pieces, brownies, and candy bars you want!

In the last section, I will present some recommendations regarding how much of a “good thing” is healthy, and in what form. Just like with most things in life, a little goes a long way when it comes to chocolate.

#1. Chocolate is a Powerful Antioxidant

It may come as a shock to you that such a yummy “treat food” can actually help you lower oxidative stress, but it is true. Chocolate contains some of the same flavonoids that are also found in red wine and berries. These include polyphenols such as procynanidins and epicatechins, powerful antioxidants designed to attack free radicals that can lead to DNA damage.

#2. Chocolate is Heart Healthy and Can Balance Metabolism

There are several studies out there which directly link dark chocolate to cardiovascular health, a decrease in LDL levels (i.e. the bad kind of cholesterol) and lower blood pressure in general. A 2017 Chinese study found that 2 – 6 servings of chocolate a week was “associated with decreased risks of CHD, stroke, and diabetes.”

#3. Chocolate can Boost Immune Function

Cacao helps the immune system in a variety of ways, including through the introduction of essential fatty acids, encouraging an upregulation of healthy gut bacteria, the presence of flavonoids and so much more. Specifically, however, researchers have discovered that certain phytonutrients present in cacao such as theobromine can affect immune system cells directly and may even help to calm autoimmune reactions.

#4. Chocolate Helps the Brain and Mood

Cacao contains some interesting substances that are found in only a few plants in nature. One such substance is called anandamide. Anandamide is a type of fatty acid and also a neurotransmitter. It is sometimes called the “bliss molecule” because of its ability to elevate mood. In addition, anandamide supports the endocannabinoid system and is found in cannabis as well, according to a 2018 study at the Universidad Católica de Cuyo in Argentina, amongst others.

Finally, a 2015 study conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that consumption of cacao daily was linked to improvements in “mild cognitive impairment” amongst older adults. In part, this may be because the phytonutrients within cacao help to increase blood flow to the brain.

#5. Chocolate May be Cancer-Preventative

With all the above going on, it is no wonder that dark chocolate is also considered to be cancer-preventative when consumed in moderate amounts. Indeed, there is ample scientific evidence to support this connection.

Several studies have made the link between high levels of antioxidants in cacao and cancer cell growth inhibition. Specific kinds of cancer that have been verified by evidence-based studies include cervical, lung, breast and colon cancer, as well as leukemia.

As a side note, a 2005 study conducted at Georgetown University shed light as to exactly how cacao may be cancer protective. The researchers discovered that particular proteins in cacao had an inhibitive effect on other kinds of proteins that are known to be cancer-causing.

Of course, additional substances within cacao, including monounsaturated fats which have long been associated with cancer prevention and healing, make cacao a cancer prevention substance as well.

The Best Way to Consume Dark Chocolate

The way you “choose to indulge” in this healthy snack is largely up to you and your tastes. If you are going for health as well as satisfaction, however, you may want to take note of these basic tips:

#1. Stay away from milk chocolate. Milk chocolate often contains more butter, milk, and other dairy products than chocolate as well as a hefty amount of sugar. In the end, this option will do you more harm than good. When it comes to nutrition, stick with dark chocolate or straight cacao “nibs.”

#2. Keep it high on cacao and low on sugar. Take a stroll down any health food aisle and you will see that there are tons of options out there for dark chocolate which has low or even no sugar and is also high on the cacao end. A good percentage, according to experts, is around 56 to 70%. For a no-sugar option, try some of the tasty chocolate bar brands that use stevia or monk fruit instead of sugar.

#3. Make sure it is organic! This is a no-brainer and, of course, is the advice I would give for every consumer purchase choice you make! Going organic with your chocolate avoids unnecessary and harmful hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and GMOs.

#4. Enjoy in moderation. Stick with just one or two squares a day and you will be on your way to health and will have satisfied that chocolate craving as well. If you really want to reap healthy rewards, try munching on straight cacao “nibs” which are available at most health food stores or online.

Cacao Contains a Multitude of Common Essential Nutrients (and Some Surprising Ones Too)

All superfoods are such because of the amount of concentrated nutrients within them. Cacao, or natural chocolate, is no exception. Each cacao bean contains a hefty amount of the following vital nutrients:

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol)
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B12
  • Thiamin
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Folate
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Zinc
  • Copper
  • Manganese
  • Selenium
  • Choline
  • Betaine
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • 3 kinds of healthy fats
  • Protein
  • Flavonoids
  • Caffeine
  • Brain, mood, and gut-healthy amino acids

And that is just the beginning! It’s safe to say that chocolate in its raw form packs “quite a punch” when it comes to the nutrients that our bodies need every day.

After being diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, Debra trusted her doctors. But one tumor turned into three, the cancer began...

The post Cancer Survivor Story: Debra Dennison appeared first on The Truth About Cancer.

]]>
I’m Debra Denison. I was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in March, 2017, and at that time they thought I would need a simple lumpectomy followed by about 16 rounds of radiation. Apparently though, after my lumpectomy that was supposed to be so simple, they uncovered three tumors, not one and they found that the nodes that they had determined to be free of cancer were in fact impacted. So they rushed me into chemotherapy for months. But at the beginning of chemotherapy, I discovered that I needed to really look farther. I knew there had to be a better way.

Oh, it affected everyone. Me and everyone, my daughter, my family, my spouse, my son, my friends. It affected everyone because I was the healthy one of the group. I was always the one that never got sick. So my entire social system and social support system said, “It can’t be, it can’t be. You’re not the one. This isn’t for you. This happens to someone else. But it doesn’t happen to you, Deb.” But it was happening to me and that was the hard part.

Oh, they totally rallied round. I’m very blessed. My daughter, I knew I could count on her. She went right into research mode. My friends were there by my side. They were bringing little gifts. They all asked to do a chemo session with me. So every two weeks, I had a different friend sitting beside me in the purple chair in our chemo lab and offering continuous support. Friends calling, saying, “Let’s go for a walk,” because I was big into exercise. So we would walk every day. They were just always there. My friends were so there for me. It was wonderful.

Beyond the traditional that my oncologist recommended at that time, it was when I started really reaching out and looking into something else because I really believe your body can heal itself. I really always have believed that. So I delved deep and hard into research. I came across Ty and Charlene and their Truth About Cancer series. I ordered it. I listened. Every single day, I would spend probably four hours a day, inundated myself with good, helpful information and I changed everything about my life. I mean my life is almost unrecognizable, the before and the after, not that I didn’t have a great life before, but I am a changed person today.

There were so many things. I found God. So I found a very nifty church close to my house and I have my church community and they were incredibly supportive. But I changed my diet into extreme clean eating, herbs, spices, oils. I cut out meat for several months and then I started gradually bringing it in. I hired a nutritionist, I hired a reflexologist, a holistic nutritionist, a holistic reflexologist, an energy specialist, massage therapy. I was doing everything I can and still am. I did a lot of vitamin C continuously throughout the chemo and beyond, still am, vitamin C, IV vitamin C and Mistletoe. I was searching but I was following everything up with research that I felt was solid and I was praying that I was on the right path and the happy day of my life was January 30th when I met with my surgeon having had a double mastectomy and she said, “The pathology has come back, Debra and there is no evidence of breast cancer left and your nodes are clear.” That was wow. Wow. That was pretty, pretty joyful, excited. Praise God for that.

I’m doing great. I’m maintaining all my protocols. I’m still eating extremely clean, very spiritual, working on my sleep, like really working on my sleep, which is always going to be a bit of a challenge for me, I think. I’m still doing my IV vitamin C and seeing all my specialists, still doing it, continuing on with everything.

Well, I refused further treatment from the mainstream. They wanted me to do 25 rounds of radiation and I said, “No. My pathology is showing clear. I don’t want to do that.” So they have accepted that. So my status to date is all good. All good. Yeah. I keep going for markers, tests that I paid for, tumor markers that are extremely low, so I have every reason to be optimistically, cautiously optimistic, but extremely grateful that I feel so good and I’m happy to be here.

My number one recommendation is I call them the A-team. The A-team is your your standard team. You have to listen to them, but I don’t think my number one recommendation is to take everything that they say as the only way to be. I believe wholeheartedly that cancer is a metabolic disease and it can be beaten and we just have to find out the root cause and fix that root cause. That is my… Find good people. Find people that are aligned with your line of thinking. Big thing is diet and exercise. I mean, no big brainer there. It’s the big thing.

Well, one, that’s a great question because my oncologist, I would go every two weeks for my treatments and prior to the treatment I always had to see my oncologist and she kept saying, “Well, how are you feeling?” Because I had four months of chemo every two weeks and I said, “I’m feeling really good. Surprisingly, I’m never sick. I don’t feel nauseous. I am up and at them every day. I never have a down day where I can’t get out of bed,” which I had been warned about. So my aha moment at that point was whatever I’m doing, which was changing, throwing everything at it, but changing my diet big time and changing my lifestyle and my belief system was working. It was working for me, and the IV vitamin C, et cetera. Something was working and I didn’t want to mess with that.

If you haven’t found a strength, strength in prayer, find it. It’s extremely elevating and God is always there to give you someone to talk to about it. I think you pray and you pray for the tools to heal yourself. [Josh Hack 00:10:12] said, “Everybody is different.” I totally agree with that. Everyone is different. Everybody may have a different healing journey, but you need to be on that journey. Jump on that journey bandwagon and please don’t let yourself settle for just what our traditional medicine, our modern medicine is dictating. There’s way more than that.

We’re all dependent on the plant kingdom. Have been since we crawled out of our caves. We’re dependent on the plant kingdom for food, for medicine, for shelter. So the plants have become a passion for me. These are some of my professors and teachers, if you will, from the Machiguenga and Shipibo tribes. So I want to talk about plants.

I want to talk about our relationship with the plant kingdom and what the plant kingdom has to offer us. I mean, the Amazon Rainforest, you’ve got about 100,000 species of plants down there. Of which, only a tiny 3% have been studied by the Western model of science for the therapeutic value. Yet over 25% of pharmaceuticals come from that tiny 3% that have really been looked at. Even beyond that, when we’re looking at plants, there’s some interesting things. I’m going to talk a lot about the entourage effect in a little bit. The way plants work is different than the way isolates work.

This is where I see part of a paradigm shift happening. We’ve lived in a world of reductionism and isolationism to where we look at a plant, and every drug company in the world’s in the Amazon rainforest. Why? Because that’s where everything is. You got the highest concentration of life energy, of chemistry, of nutrition and energetics, and new molecules down there. So they’re looking at this and pata de vaca, [pedrumaca 00:11:05], for example, used very commonly in Brazil for balancing blood sugar. Make a hot-water infusion out of the leaf. It reduces the blood sugar levels, so obviously that’s a big target as a diabetic drug, a multi-billion dollar deal.

However, when pharmaceutical companies would study that, what they would see is—break this down into the active components, and none of the active components worked. None of them worked. It had to be a hot-water infusion of the whole leaf, then it works. So that gets abandoned. So people ask, “Why don’t pharmaceutical companies grab these and run with them?” Well, it doesn’t fit the business model because that whole model is built on isolates. Sangre de drago, the same way, not only is it rich in proanthocyanidins. It also very antiviral in particular with the herpes virus. But again, you can spend 10s of millions of dollars, and some companies did. They saw what the sap did, but they don’t sell sap, so they couldn’t break it down into a model like that.

So part of this paradigm shift I’m talking about, why I’m so excited and so optimistic about the future is, people are finally recognizing that the plants work with an entourage. We have a complex chemistry, our bodies, a very finely-tuned, finely-engineered, complex organ with some innate intelligence where everything is working. So when we introduce plants into it, plants have a very complex chemistry as well. But our bodies understand that complex chemistry. We know how to integrate that into our physiology and do that. So we want to allow the plants to do that. So when you’re talking about plants, especially cannabis, we’re getting into the idea of full-plant extract versus isolates.

So let’s talk about some of these plants. I t alked about before from the Amazonian plants, una de gato. Yes, it has the ability to kickstart macrophage and phagocytosis, really get the immune system up. So these are really nice to use in conjunction with the cannabis. Remember I said cannabis, we’ve got cannabinoid receptor sites on practically every cell in our body. So normally, whatever you’re putting with that cannabis, I see an increase in efficiency of the whole thing. So the una de gato has been shown to inhibit some cancer cell growth, to actually induce apoptosis. It’s a very well-known anti-inflammatory.

If we look at some of the studies here, you’ll see it’s anti-immunogenic and anti-proliferative effect on human breast cell lines. And you see GreenMedinfo, a wonderful resource for looking at data on plants, on cannabis, greenmedinfo.com. You can go there. They’re accumulated a lot of studies. So if you’re trying to go on the internet and look for some of this, you can just be overwhelmed with all of this stuff. But if you just want to look at the studies that have been done with specific plants and specific health issues, GreenMedinfo is a great, great resource for that.

This is EGCG: “Changes the Phenotype of Invasive Breast Cancer Cells Repressing Malignancy.” EGCG is an epigallocatechin gallate. It’s a type of a catechin that you find in other plants as well. You’ll find this in yerba mate. You find this in green tea. You find this in camu camu. Those are very important.

Sangre de drago, I talked about it before as 90% pure proanthocyanidins. It’s a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory benefits, anti-viral. And it’s also been shown to induce apoptosis, so that’s very important. The “Anthocyanidin’s Targeting of Signaling Networks in Cancer Cells”, a nice little study there that shows how it interferes with some of the metabolic processes of cancer.

Chanca piedra, I talked about it earlier. They had given me chanca piedra. It’s a extraordinary plant. Never seen it fail for kidney stones and eliminating excess calculi in the body. But now we know something else. Phyllanthus niruri, which is chanca piedra, can interfere with the multiple signaling pathways involved in tumorigenesis and be used as a potential therapeutic candidate for treatment of cancer. So there’s many plants in the Amazon. These I think are right now in my opinion the top ones to be using in conjunction with cannabis.

And then graviola. The antiangiogenesis is really, I think, the main thing for graviola. I mean, it’s full of these acetogens. We use the leaf of the plant. It produces a fruit. I have 2,000 of these growing on my plantation in the jungle in Peru. It produces this big fruit. That fruit, you can use for ice cream. You use it for ice cream in Peru. It’s the leaf is really the part that we’re looking at for the antian- giogenesis properties. It’s full of these acetogens. These acetogens have an affinity for fast-growing cells. So they will go to cells that are growing really quickly, right, which is where you want them to go in the case of a tumor. And they will start shutting down the vascularity and the nutrient supply to that tumor, so it really compromises that tumor. Oftentimes, that tumor will respond with a little inflammatory indicator. So if you’ve got your immune system up on guard, then it knows what to do.

Camu camu is a favorite of mine. I’ve got 28,000 camu camu trees growing in the flood plain of the rainforest. The great thing about camu camu is it grows in the flood plain. So what does that mean? It means a certain time of the year when the rains come and that water level rises 30 feet, these plants are underwater. And you would expect them to die, but they don’t. They love it. They love those rains. They would just thrive in the environment. What’s really cool about that is that all these 100,000 species of plants in the Amazon that are contributing. Their leaves fall onto the floor. Their plants fall over. The limbs fall off. And all of that falls onto the floor, that rich biomass of the Amazon Rainforest. And when the rains come, it picks all of that up from the entire Amazon Rainforest and moves it around the flood plain, and it comes directly to these camu camu trees. So you think about the density of nutrition and concentration of molecules that they have to choose from for their life purpose. They can draw out of the soil and integrate into their life being.

Lastly, you want to make sure you’re detoxifying. Because if you’re doing all of these things, and you’re getting the kind of result that you want to be getting, you’ll end up with a lot of cellular debris that you want to move through the lymphatic system and detoxify. So the jurubeba an interesting plant in Brazil. It’s used down there as a hangover remedy because it detoxifies the liver so quickly. But I’ve used it in several formulas over the years as part of the lymphatic drainage and detoxification. So if you don’t have access to jurubeba, then really look at other detoxification botanicals that you can work with.

Now, I want to talk to you about plant medicine. Why? Well, because that’s my passion. That’s what I know the most about. Cannabis, I’ve talked a lot about cannabis. At this conference here so many people have come up to me already so interested in cannabis, as am I. So we’ll dive into that.

So why cannabis? Why now? People ask me, “Cannabis? Is that a new drug?” Well, it’s not new, and it’s not a drug either. We’ve had a relationship with cannabis for thousands of years. We’ve had a documented medicinal relationship with cannabis for 3,000 years, goes back into the Chinese materia medica and the Iranian materia medica, a documented history of use with cannabis. So as humans, our natural relationship with cannabis has been ongoing for thousands of years. Yes, it’s been interrupted the last 70 years. Okay? But now we’re reestablishing our relationship with cannabis. So to have a natural relationship with cannabis is not something new. This is something that we’ve had for 3,000 years that was just interrupted in the last 70 years. So I’m really pleased to see that happening. So this relationship with cannabis is beginning to show some quite extraordinary value. I mean, I’ve been doing plant medicine for 34 years. And this is one species of plant out of hundreds of thousands that is really just moving like a tsunami across the world and with good reason.

So this endocannabinoid system, what does it do? It’s all about maintaining a balance and a harmony in the body. So there’s signaling pathways that go to every major system, every major organ. Which if you can connect the proper cannabinoids there, then you can develop proper body responses to different challenges that are coming in, which is why normally in a plant kingdom what I’ve seen is this group of plants here is for balancing blood sugar, this for immune system, this for pain, swelling, inflammation, this is for energy. So you can just see the hormonal balancing plants. But cannabis is different because endocannabinoid system that once you introduce the cannabis there, you’re seeing all kinds of things happen, Alzheimer’s, with MS, with epilepsy, with seizures, with Parkinson’s, with cancer. So it affects all of these systems, every system, physiological and therapeutic. Here’s a little study, the endocannabinoid system controls the growth and metastases of malignant cells. How about that?

So with the cannabinoids, most people know THC. Most people know CBD. Many people are learning about CBC, CBG, CBN. There’s 140 known cannabinoids. Did you know that? 140. Most the attentions on THC and CBD, but there’s 140. And then each of these pretty much has an acidic form as well. So you have a THC and you’ve got THCA. Now, THC is known as the psychoactive component in cannabis. But did you know when the plant grows, it’s not psychoactive? The plant grows, it’s producing all of its cannabinoids in an acidic form, THCA, CBDA, CBCA, et cetera. So it’s only once it’s heated or decarboxylated, they call it, where you break a little carbon bind when it’s heated, that it becomes psychoactive. So if you smoke it, you’re heating it. If you cook it in a brownie, you’re heating it. If you’re processing it in an extract and using heat, then you’re converting the THCA to THC.

We used to call that activating it because it seemed like, well, that’s where the active component is once you heat these cannabinoids. Now we know that the acidic form of the cannabinoids are extraordinarily therapeutic as well. So when you’re looking at plant and plant products with the cannabis, just know that it’s a lot more than CBD and THC. So hopefully when you’re at a dispensary, or you’re getting your product, you’ll be able to at least have the eight or ten major cannabinoids there because they all have therapeutic benefit. The way they modulate with each other, this entourage effect, is what determines the real outcome.

Then I talked about the terpene component as well. A terpene is essentially an essential oil, so it’s what’s going to give it the flavor or the taste. As many of you know, cannabis comes in a lot of different flavors. You have some that’s kind of citrusy, some that’s kind of lavendary when you’re smelling it, some of it smells kind of skunky, some smells like diesel fuel. These are the terpenes that you’re smelling. Right? Like the terpene in a flower, that’s the terpenes where you’re getting the smell. Cannabis produces terpenes for its own life purpose. It produces terpenes to create these smells one, to attract pollinators and to defend itself from predators.

So depending on where the plant grows, it’s normally how those terpenes express themselves. So when you’re growing in Afghanistan or in India where it looks like cannabis originated, and everywhere mankind moved he took seeds with him because it’s so important for food, for shelter, for medicine, that when you’re growing it in Columbia or Thailand, you have different environmental conditions. Over several generations, the plant will adjust to that and produce different terpene profiles because the pollinators and the predators are different, so you get different terpene profiles coming from different plants.

And so the cannabinoid and terpene benefits that would associate to the topic that we’re talking about here is, one, pain relief, pretty much across the board. And we got plenty of studies that show that it actually slows and can stop the migration of cancer cells, you know, the metastases, and it creates an apoptosis. This is something a lot of people don’t realize, which is encouraging a natural cell death. It can actually kill cancer cells. At the same time, it protects the healthy cells, so that’s not normally what happens when you’re killing cancer cells. Normally, it’s some very toxic things that are doing that. So what we’re learning is there’s a different way to go here, so there’s massive amounts of research beginning in this arena to help identify the profile of cannabinoids and the chemovars and/or the combination of chemovars that are going to give us our best results because you want these terpenes—

The terpenes, the essential oils by themselves have a therapeutic value. So you’ve got pinene, myrcene, lemonene, bisobolol, linalool, all of these specific terpenes, or essential oils, have therapeutic benefits on their own. And the entourage effect just means when you’re using the full-plant extract where all of these terpenes and naturally occurring cannabinoids are modulating naturally that’s when you’re going to get the best benefit. There’s already studies that are demonstrating that. So you’re getting a better effect with the entourage effect of a full-plant extract over an isolate of THC or an isolate of CBD or an isolate of any of the other cannabinoids. So this is a fascinating area.

On 29 August 2020, our good friend and brother in the fight for freedom, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whom we affectionately call “Bobby,” spoke to hundreds of thousands of freedom-loving people in Berlin, Germany.

This amazing event happened 57 years after Bobby’s uncle, President John F. Kennedy, delivered his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech in West Berlin.

In the same fashion that President Kennedy denounced the repressions of individual freedom by communist regime, Bobby spoke to what is being called “the largest crowd in German history” about the COVID plan-demic, the rise of global surveillance, Big Pharma, and bio vaccines coming soon.

During his opening remarks, Bobby said that the corrupt American mainstream media are telling people he came to Berlin “to speak to about five thousand Nazis.

Speaking to hundreds of thousands of freedom-loving patriots, Bobby remarked:

But I look at this crowd and I see the opposite of Nazism. I see people of democracy. People who want open government. People who want leaders who are not going to lie to them. People who want leaders who will not make up arbitrary rules and regulations to orchestrate obedience of the population.

We want health officials who don’t have financial entanglements with the pharmaceutical industry, who are working for us, not Big Pharma.”

He continued:

The pandemic is a crisis of convenience for the elite who are dictating these policies,” said Kennedy Jr., who praised the huge Berlin crowd for being on the frontline of the fight against global totalitarianism.

Fifty years ago, my uncle John F. Kennedy came to this city. He came to this land, because Berlin was the frontline against global totalitarianism. And today again, Berlin is frontline against global totalitarianism,” said Kennedy Jr. to a roar of approval from the crowd.

I look at this crowd. I see all the flags of Europe. I see people of every color. I see people of every nation. Every religion. All caring about human dignity, about children’s health. About political freedom. This is the opposite of Nazism.”

Governments love pandemics. They love pandemics for the same reason they love war. Because it gives them the ability to impose controls on the population that the population would otherwise never accept.”

It’s a mystery to me that all of these big important people like Bill Gates and Tony Fauci have been planning and thinking about this pandemic for decades. And yet, now that it’s here, they don’t seem to know what they are talking about.”

They are making it up as they go along. They are inventing numbers. They cannot give us a PCR test that actually works. They have to change the designation of Covid on the death certificates to make it look more dangerous. The one thing they are good at is pumping up fear.”

An inspiring number of patriots and freedom lovers in Berlin shouted “We Don’t Consent”… “Freedom Not Fear” … “No to Masks in Schools” … and other inspiring slogans.

Bobby explained that “the only thing a government needs to turn people into slaves is fear.

They haven’t done a very good job about protecting public health. But they’ve done a very good job of using the quarantine to bring 5G into all of our communities. And to begin the process of shifting us all to a digital currency, which is the beginning of slavery. Because if they control your bank account, they control your behavior.”

QUESTION: Where is the “lame-stream” media on this? Why isn’t this front page on every newspaper and the top story on every TV news program? When Joe Biden stumbles through 2 sentences without forgetting what he’s saying and actually completes a logical thought, it’s all over the news. But when the nephew of President John F. Kennedy speaks to hundreds of thousands in the same city where his uncle gave a historic speech 57 years before … crickets!

Since the “official story” about COVID is that we should all be very very very very afraid, the message of empowerment and freedom MUST be squelched! That’s why the MSM isn’t covering this amazing story about a true patriot, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., speaking to the largest crowd in German history! They are sellouts!

But keep the faith and keep fighting! We will win!

Freedom will triumph over tyranny!

The post CDC Admits to Inflating COVID Death Count appeared first on The Truth About Cancer.

]]>

At this point in 2020, would anything shock you? Well, the CDC recently released data showing that 94% of reported COVID-19 deaths may have been falsely reported. According to recent data from this government agency, only 6% of deaths attributed to COVID-19 can actually be attributed to the virus.

We’ve been told that the drastic measures which have destroyed small business, put millions out of work, and officially revoked religious freedoms are necessary. We’ve been told that this virus has killed over 180 THOUSAND Americans since March. But what if that number was lower? What if 94% of the 180,000 fatalities attributed to the disease had other causes of death?

According to the newly released CDC data, only 10,800 of those 180,000 can truly be attributed solely to the virus. The “pandemic” that has crippled our economy and society has been dramatically over-exaggerated. The CDC and our politicians know it. We said the same thing months ago. Millions out of work. Billions in tax bailouts. Suicides, hunger, and abuse skyrocketing.

And the numbers driving this devastation are 94% wrong.

Let’s repeat that:

Only 6% of COVID-19 deaths can actually be attributed solely to the virus itself.

Our government has lied to us, and that lie has been catastrophic. The rise in the number of unemployed workers due to COVID-19 is substantially greater than the increase due to the Great Recession. Substance abuse has increased. Mental health issues have increased. Suicides have increased.

Mental health and coronavirus

In fact, a survey last month found that at least 40% of adults in the U.S are struggling with mental illness or drug abuse. In fact, 11% of those surveyed said that they have “seriously considered suicide” since the outbreak.

11%

Domestic abuse is up. Defaults on loans and mortgages are up. Child abuse is up. Abuse of people with special needs is up. Americans are depressed, poor, isolated, and hopeless. And it’s exclusively due to false data and media lies.

This is going to be a long read, so we’ll break it into three main sections for you (feel free to bookmark or share this page and come back for the entire story).

First, we’re going to demonstrate that the mortality rate of the disease (and the narrative that hospitals are overwhelmed) is a lie. Second we’ll discuss the fact that masks, social distancing, and business closures are ineffective and extremely dangerous. Finally, we’ll talk about how the government and elite have used this fake pandemic to gain more control, steal more money, and wage a guerrilla war on liberty. Truth be told, almost every “fact” about COVID is actually a lie.

Everything You “Know” About COVID-19 Is A Lie

We’ve been told that COVID-19 is lethal. That it has killed nearly 200,000 Americans. That masks, social distancing, and the sudden shutdown of our economy are the only reason many more haven’t died. But there’s a big difference between dying FROM the virus and dying WITH the virus.

According to the CDC, only 6% of coronavirus deaths can be confirmed as having been caused by  coronavirus. “For deaths with pre-existing conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death,” they say. (You can look at the official data here.)

So, for over 94% of reported deaths (the same deaths that have led to economic collapse and significant loss of life), there were almost 3 additional causes of death. People who have drowned, people with late-stage cancer, people involved in traffic collisions… ALL of these people we classified as COVID-19 deaths simply because they tested positive at the time of their death.

There are 3 fundamental truths that you need to understand:

  1. Reporting is Faulty
  2. Tests Are Faulty
  3. Most Patients Are Not Contagious

Reporting is Faulty

That’s really the headline here. 94% of reported fatalities had other causes of death. But it gets worse. Reliable data and information are essential to making decisions. You can’t plan a dinner party if you don’t know what’s on the menu or how many guests will attend. You can’t order parts to fix your car if you haven’t diagnosed the problem.

It follows that you can’t effectively implement drastic, global, “protective” protocols if you don’t yet understand the extent of the virus.

And yet that’s exactly what’s been happening. Scarce and unreliable data haven’t stopped entire nations from issuing “stay at home” orders and forcibly closing millions of businesses. A massive amount of the U.S. population is now out of work and quarantined in their homes despite virtually no reliable data to support the effectiveness of these measures.

Professor John Ioannidis (an expert in medicine, epidemiology, population health, biomedical data science, and statistics) may have summed it up best:

“The data collected so far on how many people are infected and how the epidemic is evolving are utterly unreliable. Given the limited testing to date, some deaths and probably the vast majority of infections due to SARS-CoV-2 are being missed. We don’t know if we are failing to capture infections by a factor of three or 300… This evidence fiasco creates tremendous uncertainty about the risk of dying from COVID-19. Reported case fatality rates, like the official 3.4% rate from the World Health Organization, cause horror — and are meaningless. Patients who have been tested for SARS-CoV-2 are disproportionately those with severe symptoms and bad outcomes. As most health systems have limited testing capacity, selection bias may even worsen in the near future.”

The numbers are almost meaningless,” says Steve Goodman, a professor of epidemiology at Stanford University. There’s a huge amount  of people who have mild cases and would not likely seek testing, he says. The rate of increase in positive results reflects a mixed-up combination of increased testing rates and spread of the virus.

It’s also worth mentioning that many COVID-19 cases are diagnosed without tests. If a person dies with COVID symptoms (which are common among MANY diseases), doctors may diagnose them without ever testing to confirm.

If a person dies and tests positive for the virus, they’re added to the body count. However, that’s scientifically irresponsible at best and criminally negligent at the worst. In Italy, New York, and other parts of the world where the outbreak has been most severe, the likelihood that many of these fatalities weren’t caused by the virus is high.

We know that COVID-19 is much worse for the older population. Those aged 0-64 make up about 84% of the U.S. population. But they only account for a little over half of the documented hospitalizations and about 20% of all deaths. Meanwhile, those aged 65-84 make up a little over 14% of the population but account for 36% of hospitalizations and 46% of the deaths. Those 85+ comprise only 2% of our population, yet they account for 9% of hospitalizations and a whopping 34% of deaths!

Now, we’re not saying that every life isn’t precious and ireplacable. Anyone who knows us (or our mission) can see that preserving every human life is our primary objective. But when you look at the numbers in context, things just don’t add up.

We know that this disease disproportionately affects the elderly. It also disproportionately affects those with compromised immune systems. But so does almost every disease known to man. Did you know that the median life expectancy in the U.S. is about 78 years? The sad truth is that people die every day… and older people die more often.

If an elderly person comes in with health issues, passes away, and is diagnosed with the virus, they are added to the number of people killed by COVID-19 – EVEN IF THEY HAD OTHER SEVERE UNDERLYING CONDITIONS!

To put that into perspective, there have been reports of people around the country dying from car accidents, drowning, or premature birth who have been counted among the coronavirus victims. But the testing has been notoriously unreliable, and the causation simply isn’t there. Just last month, it was confirmed that a positive test is no longer required to attribute a fatality to the virus.

Which brings us to point #2…

Tests Are Faulty

The U.S. government has mismanaged COVID testing so badly that we were both the slowest and the most inaccurate when it came to COVID testing. Rather than allow the free market to create testing kits, the government assigned the task to the CDC, who rolled out an inaccurate test, contaminated thousands of samples, and refused to test a patient in Northern California who turned out to be one of the first probable COVID-19 cases.

Covid False Positives

The more data and information we have, the more we can make informed decisions. In this case, bad and missing data resulted in catastrophically terrible decisions. And testing today is still wildly inaccurate.

Earlier this month, shortly before Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine was due to meet President Donald Trump at a Cleveland airport, the governor tested positive on a rapid antigen test for the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.

Two follow-up tests, using a more accurate polymerase chain reaction, or PCR test, showed the governor didn’t have COVID. This kind of false positive with an antigen test isn’t an isolated incident.

Dozens of people who took a rapid SARS-CoV-2 test developed by biotech company Quidel at a Manchester, Vermont, clinic in July were told they had COVID. Subsequent PCR tests run by the state’s Department of Health found that only 4 out of those 65 were positive.

Testing is inaccurate. Patients are sometimes diagnosed without being tested. There are likely millions of infected people with no symptoms. And the death toll is a flat-out lie.

And even when tests are accurate, they can still be misleading.

Most Patients Are Not Contagious

The New York Times published a story on Saturday which looked at the accuracy of the most popular coronavirus tests currently in use. It found that the tests are designed in such a way that they are far too sensitive. The Times estimates that up to 90% of the people who receive a positive test are carrying such a small amount of the virus that they probably aren’t contagious; and only about 10% would need to consider isolating themselves.

The standard tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus. We’ve known for months (based on the available data) that the coronavirus does not act like normal cough and cold viruses that we often catch from children. In a surprise to pediatricians, teachers and parents alike, the virus behaves the opposite of what we are used to. Children and adolescents do not seem to get sick with Covid-19 as frequently as adults. And children, especially elementary school-age children, do not seem to transmit it effectively to one another, nor to adults.

This has been documented in countries around the world, including Greece, Switzerland, and Australia. Even when schools are open, most children who get ill are found to have been infected by someone in their household, not from a school contact.

According to the CDC’s own data, people aged 0-24 account for 0.2% of documented COVID-19 deaths. And remember – only 6% of those are actually confirmed!

And since the vast majority of infections seem to be asymptomatic, there is an extremely high likelihood that there are thousands – even millions – of infected Americans who have not been tested or diagnosed.

So the tests are bad, the data is bad, and most people probably aren’t even carriers. But there’s one more lie we need to address before we move on. And it involves the fundamental rhetoric of “flattening the curve”.

Hospitals Are Not Overwhelmed (the U.S. is actually in great shape)

Despite the narrative you may have heard from the mainstream media, our health system (while riddled with flaws), was prepared for an event like this. While the federal government’s pandemic preparedness was sorely lacking, the fact is that America’s system of private medicine has left us far better positioned for today’s crisis than other nations.

As former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb explained in an interview, here in the United States, “we’re going to have a better experience [with COVID-19] than a lot of other countries because of how good our system is at delivering critical care.”

And while we hate to say it, Gottlieb is right. The United States has 20 to 30 intensive care unit beds for every 100,000 people, the most per capita of any country in the world. That is at least 75% more than in the United Kingdom, where the government-run National Health Service had a meager 5,900 ventilators before the pandemic struck.

Here’s some quick math:

  • Ignoring false positives and misdiagnoses, the U.S. has seen 6,212,174 cases.
  • The official number of deaths due to COVID currently stands at 187,742
  • The U.S. population is about 331,002,651
  • This means that the percentage of the population diagnosed with the virus is about 1.9%
  • The WHO estimates that around 20% of infected patients will require hospitalization
  • This means that the number of hospitalized patient in the U.S. is roughly 1,242,434
  • About 0.37% of the U.S. population needed hospitalization
  • The vast majority (about 75%) of hospitalized patients do not require intensive care
  • This means that about 0.09% of the U.S. population required intensive care
  • That figure amounts to 9 in every 10,000

And while that number may seem high at first, remember that the CDC confirmed that 94% of reported COVID deaths were accompanied with other morbidity factors. As we’ve already mentioned, cancer patients, people injured in car accidents, drowning victims, and people with existing heart or respiratory disease were routinely counted among the death toll for the virus.

Admittedly, the virus may well have exacerbated some preexisting conditions. It would be unfair to claim that 94% percent of cases weren’t caused – at least in part – by the virus. But the reality is that people go to the hospital all the time.

Approximately 4 million patients are admitted to the ICU each year. Given that 94% of patients had other illness or injury, it may well be that the number of  ICU admissions for COVID-19 is around 12,424. That number, while serious for patients and their families, barely registers against the 4 million ICU admissions normally seen each year.

And as usual, the U.S. government found a way to squander millions of dollars responding to a threat that never really existed. Early this spring, the Army Corps of Engineers mobilized in the U.S., hiring private contractors to build emergency field hospitals around the country.

The endeavor cost more than $660 million, according to an NPR analysis of federal spending records. But nearly four months into the pandemic, most of these facilities haven’t treated a single patient. In fact, of the 13,727 beds made available, only 1,177 patients were ever even used.

The majority of these field hospitals saw exactly zero patients. That’s $560,747.66 per patient.

But squandering money on unnecessary field hospitals is not the only mistake the government made in response to the virus.

Safety Measures Don’t Work

In a knee-jerk response fueled by faulty data (or, in many cases, no data at all), the U.S. government shut down business and began mandating mask use. But do masks work? The CDC says that even simple face coverings are better than nothing in order to “slow the spread” and limit the transmission of coronavirus.

Let’s go over the FACTS about masks and COVID-19.

Here are 12 FACTS that we KNOW…

  1. No studies have been done to demonstrate that either a cloth mask or the N95 mask has any effect on the transmission of COVID-19. As a matter of fact, research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine on the first of April indicated that “both surgical and cotton masks seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination of SARS–CoV-2 from the coughs of patients with COVID-19.”
  2. In a February 2020 meta-analysis of six randomized controlled trials involving 9,171 patients, there were no statistically significant differences in preventing influenza or viral infections using N95 respirators and surgical masks.
  3. A May 2020 study involving 159 healthcare workers aged 21 to 35 years of age found that 81% developed headaches from wearing a face mask.
  4. In a 2008 study of surgical masks worn by 53 surgeons, researchers found that the mask reduced the blood oxygen levels significantly, creating a condition known as “hypoxia.”
  5. A 2015 study indicated that hypoxia inhibits T-lymphocytes (the main immune cells used to fight viral infections) by increasing the level of a compound called hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1). In other words, wearing a mask, which has been shown to cause hypoxia, may actually set the stage for contracting COVID-19 and make the consequences much worse.
  6. Hypoxia promotes inflammation which can promote the growth, invasion and spread of cancers. Hypoxia is also a significant factor in atherosclerosis, thus it increases the risk of stroke and heart attack.
  7. The WARNING on the box of surgical masks states clearly “THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY PROTECTION AGAINST COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) OR OTHER VIRUSES OR CONTAMINANTS.”
  8. Those who wear masks are constantly rebreathing the viruses and raising the concentration of the viruses in the lungs and nasal passages. By wearing a mask, the exhaled viruses will not be able to escape and will concentrate in the nasal passages, enter the olfactory nerves, and can travel into the brain.
  9. Anthony Fauci, head of the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), did an interview on 60 Minutes where he stated that “People shouldn’t be walking around wearing masks.”
  10. The World Health Organization says that there is no need for healthy people to wear face masks. They recommend that healthy people only wear masks when taking care of someone infected with COVID-19.
  11. Surgeon General Jerome Adams advised against the general public wearing face masks, saying they were “not proven to be effective” in preventing people from contracting COVID-19.
  12. Although the CDC recommends wearing masks, they admitted that they do not have data to confirm that wearing a mask reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

The World Health Organization’s guidance about when to wear a face mask may seem confusing to Americans, who have been advised by the CDC to wear cloth face masks in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

“If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19,” the WHO guidelines read. And at first, the CDC agreed. After months of maintaining that healthy people didn’t need to wear masks in public to prevent the coronavirus, the country’s top public health officials reversed their position, recommending that everyone wear a face mask in public places where social distancing is difficult.

It’s a stark change from the early weeks of the outbreak, when the CDC said only two groups of people needed to wear masks: people who were showing symptoms and people who were taking care of someone who was sick. Sound familiar?

And the fallout of shutting down our economy will be far more severe than the virus itself.

Economy and Public Health

One of the most common attacks we’ve heard on those who support reopening our economy and salvaging our liberties is that we care more about the economy than human life. But the truth is that the two are invariably intertwined.

The more damage we do to our society and economy, the higher the death toll will be. In fact, there will almost certainly is and will be more loss of life from the reaction to coronavirus than from the disease itself. Reuters summarized a few of them beautifully:

Domestic Violence

Trapped at home with their abusers, some domestic violence victims are already experiencing more frequent and extreme violence, said Katie Ray-Jones, the chief executive officer of the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

Domestic violence programs across the country have cited increases in calls for help, news accounts reported – from Cincinnati to Nashville, Portland, Salt Lake City and statewide in Virginia and Arizona. The YWCA of Northern New Jersey, in another example, told Reuters that its domestic violence calls have risen up to 24%.

“There are special populations that are going to have impacts that go way beyond COVID-19,” said Ray-Jones, citing domestic violence victims as one.

Vulnerable Students

Students, parents, and teachers all face challenges adjusting to remote learning, as schools nationwide have been closed and online learning has begun.

Some experts are concerned that students at home, especially those living in unstable environments or poverty, will miss more assignments. High school students who miss at least three days a month are seven times more likely to drop out before graduating and, as a result, live nine years less than their peers, according to a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report.

Among the most vulnerable: the more than 6 million special education students across the United States. Without rigorous schooling and therapy, these students face a lifetime of challenges.

Special needs students “benefit the most from highly structured and customized special education,” said Sharon Vaughn, executive director of the The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at the University of Texas. “This means that they are the group that are most likely to be significantly impacted by not attending school both in the short and long term.”

For example, in New Jersey, Matawan’s Megan Gutierrez has been overwhelmed with teaching and therapy duties for her two nonverbal autistic sons, eight and 10. She’s worried the boys, who normally work with a team of therapists and teachers, will regress. “For me, keeping those communications skills is huge, because if they don’t, that can lead to behavioral issues where they get frustrated because they can’t communicate,” Gutierrez said.

Furthermore, we can’t even begin to imagine the effect of these dramatic changes on the mind and mental health of students. How will they be permanently impacted by living in fear and masks; by oftentimes literally studying in plastic boxes?

Soaring Suicides

In Europe and the United States, suicide rates rise about 1% for every one percentage point increase in unemployment, according to research published by lead author Aaron Reeves from Oxford University. During the last recession, when the unemployment in the United States peaked at 10%, the suicide rate jumped, resulting in 4,750 more deaths. If the unemployment rate increases to 20%, the toll could well rise.

“Sadly, I think there is a good chance we could see twice as many suicides over the next 24 months than we saw during the early part of the last recession,” Reeves told Reuters. That would be about 20,000 additional dead by suicide in the United States and Europe.

Less than three weeks after extreme suppression measures began in the United States, unemployment claims rose by nearly 10 million. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned the rate could reach 20% and Federal Reserve economists predicted as high as 32%. Europe faces similarly dire forecasts.

Some researchers caution that suicide rates might not spike so high. The conventional wisdom is that more people will kill themselves amid skyrocketing unemployment, but communities could rally around a national effort to defeat COVID-19 and the rates may not rise, said Anne Case, who researches health economics at Princeton University. “Suicide is hard to predict even in the absence of a crisis of Biblical proportions,” Case said.

This week, the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, relaxed its strict social isolation policies after the apparent suicides of two cadet seniors in late March. (This reported by the Gazette, a Colorado Springs newspaper.) While juniors, sophomores, and freshmen had been sent home, the college seniors were kept isolated in dorms, and some had complained of a prison-like setting. Now, the seniors will be able to leave campus for drive-thru food and congregate in small groups per state guidelines.

Public Health Crippled

Typically, local health departments run programs that treat chronic diseases such as diabetes. They also help prevent childhood lead poisoning and stem the spread of the flu, tuberculosis and rabies. A severe loss of property and sales tax revenue following a wave of business failures will likely cripple these health departments, said Adriane Casalotti, chief of government affairs with the National Association of County and City Health Officials, a nonprofit focused on public health.

After the 2008 recession, local health departments in the U.S. lost 23,000 positions as more than half experienced budget cuts. While it’s become popular to warn against placing economic concerns over health, Casalotti said that, on the front lines of public health, the two are inexorably linked. “What are you going to do when you have no tax base to pull from?” she asked.

Carol Moehrle, director of a public health department that serves five counties in northern Idaho, said her office lost about 40 of its 90 employees amid the last recession. The department had to cut a family planning program that provided birth control to women below the poverty line and a program that tested for and treated sexually transmitted diseases. She worries a depression will cause more harm.

“I honestly don’t think we could be much leaner and still be viable, which is a scary thing to think about,” said Moehrle.

Job-loss Mortality

Rises in unemployment during large recessions can set in motion a domino effect of reduced income, additional stress and unhealthy lifestyles. Those setbacks in income and health often mean people die earlier, said Till von Wachter, a University of California Los Angeles professor who researches the impact of job loss. Von Wachter said his research of past surges in unemployment suggests displaced workers could lose, on average, a year and a half of their lifespan. If the jobless rate rises to 20%, this could translate into 48 million years of lost human life.

Von Wachter cites measures which he believes could mitigate the effects of unemployment. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act approved by the White House last week includes emergency loans to businesses and a short-time compensation program that could encourage employers to keep employees on the payroll.

Young People Suffer

Young adults entering the job market during the coronavirus suppression may pay an especially high price over the long term. First-time job hunters seeking work during periods of high unemployment live shorter and unhealthier lives, research shows. An extended freeze of the economy could shorten the lifespan of the 6.4 million Americans entering the job market by an average of about two years, said Hannes Schwandt, a health economics researcher at Northwestern University, who conducted the study with Von Wachter. This would be 12.8 million years of life lost.

Thousands of college graduates will enter a job market at a time global business is frozen. Jason Gustave, a senior at William Paterson University in New Jersey who will be the first in his family to graduate from college, had a job in physical therapy lined up. Now, his licensure exam is postponed and the earliest he could start work is September.

“It all depends on where the economy goes,” he said. “Is there a position still available?”

Even the U.N., which has vigorously supported the draconian suspension of industry, society, and freedom, says that “hundreds of thousands of children could die this year due to the global economic downturn sparked by the coronavirus pandemic and tens of millions more could fall into extreme poverty as a result of the crisis”

Every day that our country remains closed, more people around the world will die. And that fatal decision has been made by a few public servants who would fancy themselves omnipotent overlords.

And as Americans suffer, the government and the extremely wealthy are taking advantage.

The Elite Class is Scamming Us

The powers that be – billionaires, the tech and pharmaceutical industries, and governments around the world – have used fear as a means to seize the very freedoms that define our society. Many of us are at the mercy of these authorities. Businesses are failing, citizens are hurtling towards financial ruin, and the rights enshrined in the constitution have been stripped.

Practicing safe habits as a virus spreads is important. Supporting your immune system, practicing proper hygiene, and taking care of those most vulnerable among us is of paramount importance. But the oppressive measures taken against us will cause far more damage than this virus ever could.

The government has quietly stripped us of our freedoms and they will start demanding concessions before they return them. Increased taxes. Bailouts for mega-corporations. New vaccine requirements. Medical tracking and registration. Communist-era social surveillance. If we comply with their demands in exchange for our liberty, we are acknowledging that our liberties are subject to the whims of a few self-important government officials and the corrupt corporations that support them.

The inevitable conclusion to this chapter of our history will be a bargain: comply with government orders and they will return to you your freedom. But conditional freedom is no freedom at all. And it’s time we sent that message loud and clear.

The $2 trillion stimulus package approved by the government is intended to help ease some of the strain the country is feeling, but a closer look under the hood reveals an unsatisfactory distribution of funds for a potentially cataclysmic crisis.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • Individuals: A direct deposit of around $1,000 in cash into the average American’s bank account.
  • Big Business: Airlines are expected to be the largest recipient of this pie with about 15% of this chunk.
  • Small Business: $10 million loans to small businesses to help make rent or make payroll.
  • Public and Health Services:  The $100 billion going to healthcare providers is allotted to help them make up for lost revenue coming in from elective surgery.

Red flags run through the entire stimulus. Any cash deposit is always welcome, but a mere $1,000 is not going to sustain most Americans through to the other end of the economic recovery. And why are private airlines the largest recipients of the Big Business pool of money?

Even now, as Congress is attempting to pass a new stimulus bill, the two parties are in a deadlock. Both sides are using this bill to force their own agendas which unrelated to the current economic crisis. A crisis they caused in the first place.

Americans are literally being held hostage and used as bargaining chips in a political showdown between the two parties.

As it turns out, all of this is the result of faulty data and lies. Artificially inflated statistics are responsible for the economic and social collapse which we’re currently experiencing. Enough is enough.

Politicians are supposed to work for us. They should use our tax dollars sparingly and responsibly, and they should protect our constitutional rights instead of stripping them away. Our governments have crossed a line that they cannot uncross. They have taken freedom hostage. They’ve used lies and fear to force America into the most severe economic recession in history. Soon, they will offer vaccines and other concessions as the terms for its release. It is of paramount importance that we do not accept their terms.

When people think about chiropractic care, they often imagine a doctor manipulating your body to adjust your back and neck. But what if it goes further than that? In this clip from TTAC LIVE 2019, expert chiropractor Billy DeMoss explains why keeping your body healthy involves so much more than just physical alignment… it’s about keeping your entire body balanced Watch the entire video to learn how physical, spiritual, and emotional vibrations are a major part of your wellness. And be sure to stick around to the end, when Billy shares the one plant that makes the biggest impact on your health.

Transcript:

What I want to do is I want to allow your body and express it’s higher potential of its innate potential. Are you with me?

Audience: Yeah.

And then your body can cure everything from a frigging hangnail to full blown cancer.

The whole objective is to raise your vibrations, remove interference through the expression.

Today I went to church. My church happens to be the Pacific Ocean. A lot of times, one thing about surfing, the bad thing about surfing, it makes you late into a lot of stuff. What I was going while it was at church, we had a really big service this morning. There was a lot of people there, somebody in my family died. You make it feel guilty a little bit and they don’t give you a hard time. But for me that’s where I get connected to God. Dr. Cooper is talking about meditation, that’s my meditation, that’s my exercise, that’s where I ground myself. One of the other things is big on ground, and that’s why I like to take my shoes off. Even though up on this synthetic stage on synthetic carpet in the building and loaded with EMF, I want you to get outside and hug a tree, lay in the sand, go out in the oceans, the best warm of grounding there is.

Okay, let me talk about sublux.

98% of children are subluxated at birth. I don’t know if it’s intentional, but it also puts a lot of pressure on the brain stem, which can cause a lot of things like I talked at the Autism Speaks event, AutismOne, I get all these events message, AutismOne, right? That’s the right one. Okay, come on. I’m having a senior moment right now. The lion’s mane is not kicking in yet. Okay, but I talked about that we could lower the autism epidemic and we just checked kids because again, that raises kids resistance. And again, most people go to chiropractors keep thinking, “Oh, I got this pinched nerve in my back going down my leg, or it’s a monotony in my neck and it’s going down my arm, I’ve got carpal tunnel and I got headaches and all this stuff.” That’s what they think chiropractic is about. And then once they feel better, what did they do? They quit like they stopped brushing their teeth. Okay, my objective in what I want everybody to go home with is that all the organs and glands, that’s why there’s about a 10% chance that you’ll have pain if you have a subluxation in your spine. That’s why I checked the spine, not only with radiographs but with my hand, but also we use HRV. I’ll get to that in a little bit in thermography on your spine to find the hot spots and see where your nervous system is at, because that’s what really I feel like I am. I’m not a bone doctor, I’m a nervous system doctor. And we’ll get into the science here in a little bit.

All right, you perceive your environment through your senses, right? Everybody’s got that. But there’s one sense to start up there and that happens to be proprioception. You also have an abundance of mechanoreceptors in your upper cervical spine, C1, C2. You also have a bunch in your sacroiliac joints and also a lot in your TMJ. That’s why it’s important, and that’s going to be what? That’s going to be the nutrition for your brain. Your brain needs what? It needs oxygen, it needs water. It doesn’t need statin drugs. Got that? Does everybody understand the scam statin? Everybody knows that. Do not take statins and again, I’m not saying that as a chiropractor, I’m saying that as a humanitarian. But what chiropractic really does is, it’s food and nutrition for the brain because as we age, what happens to our posture? It goes forward. What happens through our mobility?

Audience: It lowers.

It lowers, and then what happens to the disc? They get compressed and degenerate. All that’s preventable.

Let’s go forward one, there we go. When you have abnormal joint moving in the spine, that sends different spinal information to the brain and central nervous system. This causes dysfunctional processing and integration by the brain and central nervous system. Poor control of the spine and body leading to pain dysfunction and also what immune suppression. That’s why, you don’t get cancer because of bad luck. You get cancer typically because of immune suppression. Everybody’s creating a hundred to 10,000 cancer cells a day. And if you’ve got the nuclear frigging immune system like I do, I’ve been in practice 34 years, I’ve never missed one day of work for being sick because I don’t get sick. I ain’t afraid of no stinking bugs come on and baby, you want a real flush shot? Give me a frigging hug sister. You know what I’m saying? You should dance with your environment. Learn to interact with your environment. We’ve gotten so afraid of everything. When are we going to come up with a vaccine for every microbe that’s out there. But that’s what they want you to believe.

Chiropractic improves health, sleep, stress, happiness, well being, immune system, strength, life and mobility, it decreases disease, illness, pain, aches, injuries, bad posture.

People go to the beach and I go, it’s a beautiful day, look at the ocean, the dolphins, the seagulls, they’re just staring at their frigging phone.

And the thing is, when you do that, the part of the problem with people’s posture is when they’re working on a computer all day, their head and neck goes forward. I mean, we measure that on your x-rays and the further forward your head goes, the more pressure it puts on the disc and causes the disc degenerate and decay become arthritic. And do people get shorter, taller? When they get older.

Audience: Shorter.

They get shorter because you’ve got successive levels of disc degeneration. Maybe it’s maybe three or four or five or six, seven levels degenerate. And then what happens with the mobility when we have degeneration of the disc? Because the disc are there for mobility and that mobility is what feeds the brain, the health food. This was the study that came out to show that chiropractic really is about taking people from sympathetic to parasympathetic.

Chiropractic can also lower inflammatory markers, all disease is increased in a pro inflammatory state. That’s why I always ask people, how many people in here take fish oil? Anybody in here take fish oil? Now I think you should take hemp oil because hemp oil does the same thing and plus it’s a plant. I don’t like killing fish plus a lot of fish probably could be toxic, but hemp oil also has the big advantage of what killing cancer cells and preventing neuro degeneration also enhances neurotrophic growth in your brain. It also helps with osteoporosis. It helps lowers anxiety, helps you sleep. It balances your endo cannabinoid system, which again pushes you from sympathetic into parasympathetic and it really, truly even governs the nervous system. That’s why I think even super seasoned or thought so super important in my opinion to load up on CBD or all the other cannabinoids in there. That’s the problem.

We think it’s just one molecule but it’s the entire plant that has the entourage effect me to get to that in a little bit. That’s why medicine always drops the ball because they think, “Well, it’s just the CBD molecule and I’m going to make a synthetic version of it and think it’s going to do the same thing.” No, God put the plant together and it’s perfect harmony. He didn’t make any mistakes.

When Jerome McFarland was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2015, the doctors immediately started him on round after round of chemotherapy. But Jerome only seemed to get worse and the doctors eventually stopped the chemotherapy, claiming it was “too toxic.”

That’s when Jerome began working with a naturopath who helped him detoxify his body and fortify his immune system naturally. With high doses of natural supplements like vitamin C and magnesium, Jerome’s body finally began to heal.

Watch the full video to find out what Jerome did to become completely cancer-free! And be sure to watch til the end to hear his personal message to anyone facing a cancer diagnosis.

Transcript:

I was diagnosed with multi myeloma and amyloidosis, and it started in 2015. Basically, what it did is it infected an organ, which was my heart, and that’s where the amyloid comes in. So I got the best of both worlds. They said one in about a half a million people could survive. Well, I guess I’m going to be the one.

Initially, I was scared to death. Of course my family was traumatized, but my spirituality kind of made me go, “Whoa, your God’s bigger than these doctors, so why don’t we just hold off on this?” But then of course, the first thing they want to do is chemo. My immune system was so weak that I could barely move. Then when they gave me the drugs, it’s not rocket science, it made it even worse.

Well, I knew that whatever the treatments that they were giving me at the cancer place, they weren’t working. Then they said, “Well, we’re going to take you off of this, because it’s too toxic.”

So now I’m kind of going, “Hmm. You guys are trying to kill me for money, I’m not with this.” So I told Sherry, my wife, I said, “I’m going to stop taking this stuff. I’m done. I don’t care, I don’t care.” But they took me off of it, so they knew. Then I go back to my naturopath and he tells me about a gentleman by the name of Dr. Lee, who is a naturopathic gynecologist, right?

Oncologist, excuse me. Oncologist. I met him and he had stage four, stage five pancreatic cancer people that he was working… he took the worst patients. I still remember walking in there the first day, actually, I went in by wheelchair, because I could walk around pretty good, but back then I couldn’t. So my wife’s pushing me in a wheelchair in there and I meet this lady who’s got stage four pancreatic cancer and she’s in her fifth year. And so I’m going, “Man, I must be in the right place.” So, I started treatments there, I went once a week.

They gave me vitamin C, magnesium. Yeah, thousands of milligrams, and I started feeling better. I came back the next week, I walked in the door. Literally the next week I came in, I didn’t jog in, but I probably could of. It looked ugly, but I could do it. So now I am on every other week and that was for eight weeks, I’m going to do eight weeks of this. I told some folks that… because I just took a treatment there before I came here.

I had so much going on that I just didn’t want to hear it all. It’s like, well, we’re getting better, but I know I can have a better quality of life. You know man, I dropped them like a hot potato and we moved on. Well, besides the blood work that they do every week.

Yeah, my levels are great. In fact, ejection rate, how much your heart pumps because of the amyloid, which affects that. When I first started, I was in the 20s, and now I’m in 40s or somewhere about there. That’s a miracle right there, because doing all these tests that they took, I went to a place where they did a heart MR where they took about 3000 pictures of my heart. And I still remember the expression on the lady’s face when they took the pictures and they realize what I had. And I came back to take the thing again six months later. And when I walked in the door, I thought the lady was going to fall out of her chair because she thought I’d be dead and I totally get it and she hugged me.

She was like, wow, you’re a blessing. And I went, yeah, it’s God. Cause it’s not me. And I guess that’s the main reason why I’m even doing this because I just want people to understand that’s if God can heal me, he heal anybody, you just got to do the right things. And then I knew for me there’s more. And I wanted more. And when I first came here, I was very reluctant to this. I thought this was just bunch of crazy folk state, it was bashing doctors, but when I realized that they were going into the fiber of what you need. The things that you need, to run your system right and the nutrition and I was doing some of this, I was, but I knew there was more.

And I can’t even give up the gratitude of how I feel about the encounter that I’ve had this weekend. It’s just been amazing, you know? And I’m not blowing smoke either. And that’s why for people that listen to this or hear this, I want you to know that there’s hope. There’s hope. If I get it, anybody can have it and you just have to believe. And you know, quitting, for me, it’s not optional and I can’t speak for other people, but I’m speaking for myself and I will continue to search out these different types of things that I need. And I got some really smart people that they care about me and not about their pocketbook. And I’m excited about that.

Well, first thing I would say is the doctors, not Jesus. Okay? So they can’t tell you when you’re going to expire for one. And then for two, there’s all kinds of different ways to find out what can be done to help you. You have to seek these things out and you can’t screw around with it. You can’t kind of play with the hat, but it’s got to be something that you live every day because you do. And if you do those things and you got the grace of God. You’ve got a really good chance. And I truly believe that with all my heart or I wouldn’t be sitting here. I don’t know what other people say or what they do, but I’m as real as a real can be. And I appreciate the time and I just appreciate being able to do this.
