Well, you all know by now my quirky definition of health: EVERYTHING is health! Bad things impact us at many unseen levels and cause stress. Government lies and oppression are the greatest plague to Humankind at this point in time. It’s our BIGGEST health and wellness issue by far. The worldwide plague is getting WORSE, not better. We could be entering a new Dark Ages. Just to remind you, if you are feeling complacent: there is no vaccine for injustice, brutality, war and destruction of resources. An outbreak of evil could occur anywhere, any time, as it did in Germany in the 1930s. Good diet, nutritional extras and regular exercise will not protect you. The gun seems to be the only thing that will work again ...[click to continue]
I’ve written many times about the dangers of obesity, inflammation, and how stress will absolutely kill you if you allow it to take over your life. These three things are intrinsically linked in modern humanity and are causing a ripple effect in our physical, emotional, and mental health. Obesity and inflammation are listed as risk factors for every major disease and condition. Their common denominator is stress. When you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or upset, your impulse is to reach for comfort foods that make you fee ...[click to continue]
Throughout history, the world has been terrified of those who exhibit signs of mental illness. One must wonder if it is actual fear of the person who is mentally ill or instead, fear of somehow “catching” what they have.

Decoding Mental Illness

There are many layers to conditions and diseases of the brain and emotional construct. Despite more than a hundred years of intensive study, we’ve barely scratched the surface of what causes mental illness, how it affects the individual, and how to treat it. In this field, the “trial and error” method has many times caused more damage to patients. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 450 million people currently ...[click to continue]
Those of you who follow my work and have seen my video “Who Needs a Brain?” on YouTube, or read last week’s newsletter arguing that the brain cannot possibly do the job that science ascribes to it, might wonder if I am trying to say the brain is worthless. We all know that’s not true. If you get too much brain damage, you can observe the effects. Loss of cerebral cortex will produce little change or harm; people with 98% of brain tissue missing can still think and remember normally. But if the vital centers are damaged, such as the speech area, or motor control, the person will be paralyzed or have difficulty speaking. The important point I a ...[click to continue]
You have heard and read me saying for years that brain and mind are not the same; that the extended mind is outside the physical body; that memory is in the surrounding encapsulation of the body, not in our tissues (which leads to the concept of a low-level “cellular memory”). Mechanistic brain science, on the other hand, insists that memory and cognition all take place within the brain, because “it must be so”. There is nothing non-physical, they say (which in a way is true!) Here’s an interesting study (Nov 2015) that makes it clear that memory function (recording and retrieval) is so fast that ...[click to continue]
Ah, the gut. A too-often neglected area so crucial to your mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Referred to as the “second brain” of your body, the gut affects more than most people know or understand. Protecting it is critical. Without good gut bacteria, the rest of your body can go downhill fast! The wonderful thing about your belly is that even if you’ve beaten it up for years with pro-inflammatory foods, poor habits, and little hydration…it isn’t too late! Your gut is incredibly resilient and with a few tweaks to your lifestyle and eating habits, you can mend the damage and prevent future problems. ...[click to continue]
Supplements caused no deaths in 2014. This says it all. The great orthomolecular nutritionist doctor, Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, always said: "No one dies from vitamins." He was right when he said it and he is still right today. But that cannot be said of orthodox medicine. In the year 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, from the prestigious Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, published a shocking study which revealed just how incompetent doctors really are (there are always exceptions, remember). medical-errors-barbarastarfield Her study, published in the Jou ...[click to continue]
If you think the obesity epidemic isn’t a real concern, I’d like to take this opportunity to convince you otherwise. Between 1980 and 2014, the rate of obesity worldwide has more than doubled according to the World Health Organization. In less than four decades, the world has grown fatter, unhealthier, and (though we’re living longer) seemingly unconcerned with the quality of their additional years. 1.9 billion adults and more than 40 million children under the age of five are overweight or obese on this planet! The poor quality of our diet, lack of exercise, and bad habits have led us to this. A growing trend in these statistics are those who claim to be “addicte ...[click to continue]
No it’s not back “big time” just now. But you have cause to worry. Allow me to explain and share with you the history and some fascinating facts about polio... Officials are fudging it and refuse to use the “p-word” but a condition clinically indistinguishable from polio has arisen in California. They call it acute flaccid myelitis. Translation: sudden onset paralysis, caused by inflammation of the spinal cord (which is what polio does). Fifty-nine cases of acute flaccid myelitis have been identified in California in the past 3 years. Most cases (50 of 59) occurred in children and young adults, very typical of polio. But 2 patients—both immunocompromised adults—died within 60 days of symptom onset. Exp ...[click to continue]
All year long, I talk to you about ways to prevent disease, fight disease, and live a longer and stronger existence. It’s my calling. It’s what I love to do. Maybe you’ve listened and maybe you haven’t. We all have our choices to make. In my first post for 2016, I want to tell you that the time has come to change your life.

No more excuses.

No more waiting.

No more taking the path of least resistance.

Right now, this minute, it’s time to make life change that’s going to keep you healthy, keep your brain sharp, and help the rest of your life be the best years you’ve ever had. ...[click to continue]

A Pimple On The Nose of God Talking To You

Hi there Everybody, Scrooge here! Actually, one of my subscribers last weeks wrote to me angrily and described me as “worse than Scrooge”! Apparently his interpretation of Christmas goodwill is that everyone MUST see things his way, or they are wicked and contemptible. It was the exact opposite of the message I tried to convey. I begged for an end to narrow religious clichés. But it seems he has special privileges from God; he can insult other people and have it still be counted as “Christian values”. Strange rules! He probably sees himself as one of the last surviving guardians of truth and regards me as a pimple on the nose of God! Ha!

Happy New Year for ...[click to continue]

I’m a firm believer in removing foods or beverages in groups to determine the source of health concerns.  This is especially helpful when it comes to allergies, food intolerance, unexplained fatigue, and chronic inflammation.  You might think you have a problem with tomatoes or cheese when it’s actually the grains in the pasta you’re serving with it. Though true allergic reactions to alcohol are rare, the symptoms may go ignored or attributed to another source.  A flush that appears on the skin, an itching in your mouth or throat, runny nose, skin splotches or itching, hives, digestive upset, itchy or watering eyes, and congestion are common signs of alcohol allergy. Such mild effects might make you think you’re coming down ...[click to continue]
